Saw "Prince of Persia" the other day. A disappointment. I already know, from Robin Hood, that kohl-wearing bald people are evil. In fact, the whole time I was thinking: I really want to read Outlands
now. I want to leave this theater and read Outlands
instead. And then I was thinking, Ryou is right over there
, with that turban, with his face turned. And then I just mentally replaced whoever was talking to
Dustan with Leyam, and it turned out pretty well! The court of the King of Assyria took a liking to the saffron-robed man of great awesomeness and many knives, and after a few prayers to Hygeaia he embarked on a long and distinguished career with the Hounds.
The previews, on the other hand, were like awesome ladled with awesomesauce. Avatar? Check! It becomes clearer and clearer that the movie is probably a distilled Season 1, which means not Aang and not Zuko but Sokka
gets to do all the heroic things like having and losing the multiple girls. But the Blue Spirit was there. The BLUE SPIRIT WAS THERE!! FIGHTING! If only I had clearly distinguished an Iroh, perhaps drinking tea, my life would be complete.
Also, there was a Scott Pilgrim movie preview! There were seven evil exes! Hey, if there is someday going to be a comic-book-based movie that is good, this might be it. And I must say I REALLY LIKE the idea of making movies of indie comics, because Strangers in Paradise has room for many many movies, not to mention ELFQUEST. ELFQUEST
Lessee.. there was a Tron movie, where clearly the mainframe has found 4ch and Bad Things have happened... and even the Eclipse preview inspired me with a semi-desire to go see it. Who can say no to beautiful taiga surroundings containing wolves the size of Volkswagens happily munching Seattleite vamps, compostable cappuccino cups still clutched in their cold hands? It's hard! It's like every single preview was for the kind of movie I like to see. America must be in need of some escapism or somethings. Excellent.
In other news, the tab containing The Arrangement, Epilogue Part II, has been rewound baaack to The Arrangement, Chapter 1, Part 1
. Oh yes. Last time, I didn't skim any of the Breaking Storm chapters either. I swear, I am going to have this fic memorized in a couple years.
