Hello there, my crowd! Welcome to my Weekly Musings: Red Edition.
[I ❤ JAPAN] -- [I ❤ THE COLOR RED] -- [I ❤ CELESTIA]
How goes it, my crowd? Don't know why, but I wish I could go to a petting zoo... That'd be cool. Anyways, weekly summary time!
Nothing really big happened this week. It was just a return to normal form, all things considered. I'll spare you any psychoanalyzing, just to say that it's hard to know what to feel when you nearly risked your life one day and you come back to normalcy the next. On the one hand, you are happy to be safe and secure. On the other hand, when you're bored, you're bored. Also, I guess the other big thing is that I was able to get a refill on my medication. Wasn't sure if I would, but I did! To be honest, I haven't been feeling any pain in my sides. So maybe the medicine was all I needed! And I might not need it right now, but it's good to have the meds around just in case. I'll be glad to tell the doctor that the next time I see him.
So what do you do when you have time to spare? I've been drawing more often. Not sure if I'll have my next art done when I want to have it one, but we'll see. Speaking of art, I've been slowly clearing out the notifications in my DeviantArt account. Surprisingly not as hard as I was afraid it would be. Technically, I should have been done by now. However, I want to wait and see just how many of my DA friends are still active. Some people can go months without posting anything. Just want to give them time to pop up before I start making some major changes to my DeviantArt account. I've all ready hinted at what I'm going to do, but I'll make a journal entry about it at DA soon. It'll explain everything clearly, and I'll probably tag some people too. And when that matter is settled, I'll be able to finish things I started on my LiveJournal.
Saber 17: Dull Edge. ...Did this episode accomplish anything? It feels like it didn’t. The other knights sat around tormented, but that’s nothing new. They weren’t even there during any of the battles. We learned humans can be turned into the MOTW, but Saber was unable to save them. We saw the holy sword do his thing, but nothing really came out of it. At the very least, the show remembered Sophie, so that’s a thing. You know, if the show had been focusing on only one Rider all this time, an episode like this MIGHT be fine. But after all the other Riders and the story that we had before, this is just padding.
Kiramager 38: Shungite Memories. Can’t say this episode did much better either. I guess they at least found the last Granter Stone, even if it was stolen. This plot point isn’t anything new, but it is a plot point they keep going back to, so I guess it counts for something. Silver’s backstory with Crystalia is kind of overplayed by this point. I swear, slow moments like this make me want to take a break from tokusatsu and focus on something else for a while.
Transformers WFCT 10-12: Season 2 Complete! Well, it’s weird hearing Optimus’ angry voice in this, but at least the exchanges between him and Megatron feel a bit more like their classic selves. That Skylynx story was amazing! It does make me wonder if that is what he was like in G1 or not. And the foreshadowing to Unicron and everything... But I was right. Despite being in the title, Earth doesn’t actually appear until the end of the season. And what a way to end the season! Alita-1 still kicking butt on Cybertron, Optimus given a new lease on life and defeating Megatron, explosive battles, and a cliff hanger that kind of reminds me of Beast Wars. Earth looked amazing, BTW. Makes me wonder what the 3rd part of the series will actually be since it is a trilogy. It's not like we have much room left for material we haven't seen before. Are we going to glaze over the events of the G1 cartoon now? Hmm...
That's it for now, my crowd. Take care, and keep it simple.
Not sure why I noticed this, but Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Blur's "Song 2" seem to have a similar melody. And I guess I'm not the only one who noticed, because someone made a mashup! ...It kind works, I guess. Here's "Nirvana vs Blur - Smells like Song 2" by The Music Channel.
