Ignominious Droog would be a good name for an Arcanum character.
Just watched Jurassic World - easily one of the best films I've seen all year. Self-aware of the franchise and itself as a movie without being overly hammy about it, a serious amount of people dying grisly dinosaur related deaths (I wouldn't say it's completely child appropriate anymore) and with (not really a spoiler at all, I swear if you read it and are upset you can eat my first born son but you know how lame people get)...
a great Godzilla-esque monster throw down at the end.
Now I'm upset.
If anyone was going to eat my child Zanza, I'm glad it's you.
Funny how I react to birds beginning to sing with a yawn and a "time to go to bed" thought.
Bell, dogs, food, drool, sleep.
Huh, I was expecting Jurassic World to be not very good, since they're pushing it so hard. They've taken over train stations and filled them with lifesize model dinosaurs fer chrissakes. That's usually a sign of the movie studio realising that the film they just made is actually rubbish and has no chance of being recommended by anyone, so they go overboard with the advertising to try to compensate. I think I saw one banner ad in total for Age Of Ultron. But maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. It's either that or Jojobobo's opinions of movies are wrong. Take your pick.
It was actually quite good. Very entertaining, in glorified B movie fashion. The outcomes were predictable, the dialogue was trite, character development was shallow, special effects were great, and the action sequences were tense and exciting. Especially all the hot dino-on-dino action.
Interesting, I'll have to check it out.
Makes sense, it's a action-y B movie.
Yes, I will definitely be watching this film in about a year and a half when it appears on Netflix.
Today, I clicked on the all the ads.
Today I realised I'm locked in a post count battle with papa_dog.
Today I realized Smuel is in a post count battle with me.
Ode to the Sonic Butterfinger Blast
by Jungle Japes
Thy icy sweetness. Thy crunchy bits
of Butterfinger candy bar,
chocolate coated, pulverized.
'Tis perfect whipped bliss atop thee sits,
and under domed lid there are
soft serve fantasies realized.
Ode to your mom
Thy coy glances. Thy bouncy tits
peeking from thy lacy bra,
with nipples hardening oh so fast.
'Tis perfect bliss thy mouth admits,
when under skirt my fingers are
giving thee a Butterfinger Blast.
So I'll freely admit, I don't know much of the history of how the city of Phoenix, Arizona, began its beginnings. But I have my own theory:
Many years ago, when the first snowbirds stumbled out of the frozen North into the Valley of the Sun, they thought they had discovered a paradise. They settled in what is now the Metro Phoenix area. They lived happily all through the very tolerable winter months. Then June rolled around and they all burned to death under the scorching summer sun. Each following winter a new batch of snowbirds would arrive, taking up where the fallen had left off, and perish in the heat of the summer. Thus, like its namesake, the city rose anew from the ashes each year, reborn. Then somebody invented air conditioning, the cycle was broken, and the population exploded.
The summer heat may be the reason behind my recent love affair with a certain candy-infused ice cream treat from America's favorite drive-in restaurant chain.
I'll freely admit that being a snowbird would probably do exactly that. We're easy to dry out and considerably flammable.
Lived in Phoenix for two years. Well, Mesa/Tempe area, but it's hard for me not to consider that whole sprawl (from Sun City to Scottsdale to Mesa, etc.) Phoenix.
Many things are guaranteed to happen during snowbird season. Rent will practically double. Other costs (restaurant, gas, groceries, etc.) will also see a spike in price. Very old people who drive very large vehicles will flood the area. Half of them will not be able to see over the steering wheel. Half of those will make left turns from the far right lane (or vice averse).
From what I've heard, they're not too fond of you either.
It's too damn hot in this Seattle heat wave.
I woke up at 12 AM today. The first thing I did was to start my computer and log on to Terra-Arcanum...
Good morning? Maybe good day.
