Sooooo, tomorrow I go home and the next day I go to Dragon*Con!!!!

I am super excited, what with this being my first con. I'm going with friends (one of whom is a seasoned veteran of Dragon*Con), so I won't be in any real danger of getting eaten alive by the geekiness. Not that this would be unpleasant, mind you. I'm just happy to have people to squee with at any given moment.

All five of us are dressing up: Two are wearing original fairy costumes that look bad-ass. The other two are rocking a steam-punk Little Red Hiding Hood and Big Bad Wolf combo. I am going as Tank Girl.

I've never cosplayed before, either, (though I am no stranger to costumes or dressing up for the hell of it) so I'm a little nervous. My original idea was to tweak a Hume Black Mage, but due to lack of funds, I shifted gears towards Tank Girl.
I'm actually really glad I made the switch. Despite the movie setting costume precedent, Tank Girl has no real uniform to speak of. It's a lot of hair dye, cigarettes, and found objects hung on cut-off shorts and torn up t-shirts. And since this is pretty much my dress code, regardless, it wasn't hard to put together something recognizable. I did make the iconic Tank Girl t-shirt, mostly because I could.
I'm also going to borrow my brother's airsoft AK-47 or shotgun.
It's going to look bad-ass, even if it's not recognizable as Tank Girl. Maybe I'll post pics.

There is a shit-ton to do at this gig, and I've only got two or three things that I will battle a horde of preschoolers to do, so I'm pretty much open to whatever comes my way. Parties at night, events during the day... Sleep isn't really on the agenda.

OMG SO PSYCHED. :D :D :D

YEEEEEAH I'M ALIVE.

Just dedicated about three days worth of free time reading Rurouni Kenshin from beginning to end.

Just so you know, my free time is virtually nil some days, so this took a really, really long time.

BUT SOOOOOO WORTH IT.

LET'S GUSH, SHALL WE? )

Anywho, because this is the 2000s, you can pretty much bet that I did not pay a cent for all my readings. AND NOW YOU DON'T HAVE TO, EITHER!!!

Rurouni Kenshin via MangaFox

My next plan of attack is to probably read Basara. Or maybe reread Card Captor Sakura. Because I can like blood and gore and like CLAMP, too. Hell, I cut my otaku teeth on Magic Knight Rayearth.

Yeah, once an anime geek, always an anime geek. (Speaking of, I'll let y'all know how my Hume Black Mage costume for DragonCon is going. Once I get started on it...)

So I was downloaded yaoi scanlations, because it goes without saying that I'm not studying for my Stats exam atm. They come in .zip or .rar files, which is cool. WinRar is free (for the most part).

But it's a crapshoot. Sometimes, the image format is .jpeg, in which case Windows Image Viewer can tackle it, no problem. That's useful, because it gives you a very smooth reading experience.

But sometimes the images are in .png. While this is my preferred format for my art, because the files don't deteriorate, Windows Image Viewer does not want. So I've had to open each file individually, via Adobe ImageReady. Can we say, pain in the ass?

Now, it's possible to convert those files in ImageReady, but I have to do it one at a time. LAME.

So I began scouring the net for a mass converter program that happened to be free. I found ReaConverter 5.5.

It's fast and easy and the literature says it can convert up to 300 images at once. You need the Pro version for the really shiny stuff, but if the work 'crack' means anything to you, then that is easier than pie.

Pie is difficult, ya'll.

All right, so a saxophone player is fucking his wife. They aren't wearing protection because the guy is a total moron. So they go along for a few minutes and the wife notices the guy is beginning to really go for it, and he's hitting his peak. The wife yells "PULL OUT! PULL OUT!" The saxophone player stops and says "Why, am I sharp?"

While reflecting upon the Iron Man movie, and the general hotness therein, something occured to me.

screen caps and revelations here )

In conclusion, like pie.

Saw Iron Man last night, and really liked it. Enough that I would dearly love to see it in English. (so I'm downloading it as we speak. Metaphorically...)

But heres the thing about movies based on comic books. They are indeed marketed for the masses, because some people out there had stuff like friends and lives when they were growing up. But there is the percentage of people who grew up on this particular comic and know all there is to be known about it, and the Hollywood people have to try to please them too.

So they can feel cleverer than everybody else for getting the joke.

Unless of course its a Stan Lee cameo. If you don't get the Stan Lee cameo, what are you even doing in that theater?

There, there, you see? The superiority complex strikes again!

Anyway, my point is that I feel a twinge of regret about not being up-to-date on the name I'm watching. I'm stuck being in the uneducated mass, I guess.

Whatever, good movie. Great soundtrack. I was headbanging all the way out of the theater.

ps- Edward Norton as the Incredible Hulk? Yes.

Resturaunt Dogs

This is actually a series (you have to scroll down to find it), starting with Chaparral, so when you're done, just keep hitting 'go on' for the next part. And the next. And the ne- yeah.

Just a warning. Once you're done, you'll wanna go out for greasy diner burgers, smoke unfiltered, and make out against a broken payphone in the back hallway leading to the bathrooms.

You can get anything you want, at Alice's resturanut...

Heres the answers to my movie quotes meme that ya'll haven't gotten yet.

I'm doing this now because I am so thoroughly addicted to LJ at the moment, that the post will soon be behind the Last 10 posts page cut.



1) Oh, man, now they're killing retards. (The Big Easy. Classic New orleans story complete with Dennis Quaid. A must-see.)

2) You're a handsome devil. What's your name? (Grosse Point Blank. It should have been the 'killing the president of Paraguay with a fork' quote, but for some reason I figured that one would be too easy...)

3) FOR THE FISH STICKS! (note: this one is probably not real. probably.) (Kingdom of Heaven, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] zece, who would have gotten it anyway, since she made the quote up herself.)

4) I must congratulate you on your virtuoso performance, my boy. Centauri is impressed. I've seen 'em come, and I've seen 'em go, but you're the best, my boy. Dazzling! Light years ahead of the competition! Centauri's got a little proposition for you. Are ya interested? (The Last Starfighter, [livejournal.com profile] zece)

5) Splendid! We have been without an interpreter since our master got angry with our last protocol droid and disintegrated him. (Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] raptress. Kinda. But we're giving her the benefit of the doubt.)

6) Clearly you don't know our women! I might as well have marched them up here, judging by what I've seen. (300, [livejournal.com profile] raptress)

7) You ever notice how all the prices end in nine? Damn, that's eerie. (Clerks. Okay, I'll admit, with so many monolouges dashing about in this movie, its hard to catch every single quote. Next time it'll be the salsa shark, okay?)

8) You're looking at eons of repression getting purged. If only they'd let us jerk off. (Dogma. What? I like Kevin Smith!)

9) Come on. Do I look like the mother of the future? I mean, am I tough, organized? I CAN'T EVEN BALANCE MY CHECKBOOK. (The Terminator, [livejournal.com profile] zece)

10) How many times have I told you, Riley, stop banging chicks with more problems than you. (Land of the Dead. Not a big movie for quotes.)

11) You destroy every vehicle you get into? (GoldenEye. Shut up.)

12) Fruity Oaty Bars! Make a man out of a mouse! Fruity Oaty Bars! Make you bust out of your blouse! Eat them all the time! Let them blow your mind... ohh! Fruity Oaty Bars! (Serentiy. Oh, come on, guys! Its the jingle! With the octopus! Seriously!)

13) Y'know, this was supposed to be my weekend off, but noooo. You got me out here draggin' your heavy ass through the burnin' desert with your dreadlocks stickin' out the back of my parachute. You gotta come down here with an attitude, actin' all big and bad... and what the hell is that smell?! (Independance Day, [livejournal.com profile] raptress)

14) For the record, if I don't make it out of here, don't put me down for mummification. (The Mummy. And here I thought this one was easy.)

15) Yes, Satan? Oh, I'm sorry, sir. You sounded like someone else. (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Hey, as a Floridian, I'm kinda obligated to enjoy the amount of Dan Marino bashing that occurs in this flick.)

And there you have it!

... and something occured to me.

It is absolutley ridicoulous to think about a fully grown man running around a city, dressed as a bat.

No matter how hardcore. Thats just... Okay, wow.

And yes, Adam West didn't really help matters much, despite the comic Batman being a badass.

But this led to thoughts about how dopey the rest of the Justice League was, and just DC in general. They lived in a giant space station. Does that not say, 'blow me up and nothing and no one can stop you' to anyone else?

... no, I don't aspire to be a supervillan, what gives you that idea?

This thought process pretty much got me through school yesterday.

But I didn't touch Marvel. Stan Lee is a god.

... Not that I won't read Justice League slash, but still.

PROCLAIMERS FTW!

ITS KINDA LIKE IN POKèMON, WHEN YOU TALK TO A HIKER DUDE IN MOUNT MOON, AND HE'S LIKE, "HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT!"

AND AFTER YOU KICK IS ASS HE GOES, "FIRED AWAY!"

DOES NO ONE ELSE NOTICE THESE THINGS?!

So I've been looking into herbal remedies, as a part of an anatomy project. Here's the verdict.

COOL!

I've been running around making tea like nobody's business, and it has turned out like woah! I've had a growing headache that I associated with caffiene, so I drank a Dr. Pepper. It got worse. So I turned to my handy-dandy Herbal Remedies for Dummies book, and whipped up a orange blossom, rosemary, and bay leaf tea. And it worked! Gonna make camommile(screw spelling) and linden tea tonight, and eucalytus and rosemary in the morning.

Scored today at the library and Target. Bought two Kevin Costner movies for less than $20. Checked out Aliens and Alien 3 for no real reason, and got Office Space because I don't like to talk about my flair. Got a book I've been wanting, and a couple of CDs that rock your face (see Dardevil soundtrack).

I'm rammbling, so I'll go do something else.

Peace out.
