I sporfled...a lot.

First Fandom: I still love you and would prefer that the crazy not rub off on you, but it is inevitable now that Depp and Burton are on board. I am both excited and filled with dread over the prospect of this movie. And I know that finding fic I want to read will be that much harder once everyone has moved on. le sigh

But I need to start buying the DVDs again. needs money

God, I’ve been so mentally blocked for the last week. It’s been odd because I’ve wanted to do things and then looked around the apartment and realized that I just didn’t want to do anything here. Not fun :( But that seems to be clearing up just a bit.

More Christmas money came in so yesterday I found myself at Barnes and Noble. The plan had been to buy as much manga as I could but I was derailed when I noticed Lara Parker’s new Dark Shadows book. I’ve heard absolutely horrible things part of which centers around something which I sorta had happen in my first fanfic (I shiver to think of its badness) about it but I couldn’t help but pick it up anyway. Now it’s just staring at me from my desk and all I can think is “Damn, that could have been a volume of Nana!” I have no idea how this will turn out but I’m sure snark will be involved.

Mild Nana spoilers )

Did anyone see Sunday's episode of the Simpsons? The B-storyline with Homer and Lisa reading the Harry Potter rip off and Homer's subsequent horror of the death of Graystache the wizard makes me wonder if any of the writers followed the Dumbledore spoiler wank from Half Blood Prince. It made me nostagic enough to pull out the macros(Page 606. Completely true).

Finally, are you watching Dexter? Well, why not?! The season is nearly over and everything is coming to an exciting, suspenseful end. Should you not be aware, Dexter is Showtime’s latest series. It details the life of a serial killer who works with the Miami police department in the forensics division. Dexter had been adopted by a cop who eventually recognized that his son had tendencies toward emotionless violence. Instead of ignoring this or sending the boy to a counselor, Dexter’s dad teaches him 1) who it’s okay to kill (aka other serial killers or people who have no respect for life) and 2) how to get away with it. Dexter has lived by this code and has gotten away with it so far. But as the show begins, a new killer arrives in Miami who knows about Dexter’s past (including things Dexter didn’t know about) and is trying to draw him out into the open. It’s definitely a twisted, macabre show that is not good for those who have issues with dead bodies or blood (although the first few episodes aren’t very bloody). At the same time, it’s funny and filled with a cast of multifaceted characters and interesting stories. Should you have Showtime or have no issue with downloading you should check it out. Also, should you like it, Showtime has already OKed the second season. Hopefully they shall not screw it over as they did Dead Like Me.
