Monday eurgh  
I want to get at least ONE fic done for the bsg_epics charity drive. C'mon, brain, abandon these futile attempts at porn battle and at least do SOMETHING.

Woke up with an earache. ugh. ear infections are the worst. Stupid weather and stupid plants who think it's spring and are pollinating all over the damn place. ugh.

it was kind of cool on Saturday when MrLiz was watching Watchmen. I had earbuds with "Panic Switch" by Silversun Pickups playing and the entire Dr Manhattan backstory sequence fit to the song, like it was meant to be a video for it. It lasted for most of the song, too. I'm sure this proves nothing except that Zach Snyder is a former music video director (and it's not for nothing that song is in my same playlist as songs from the Sucker Punch sdtrk) but still. It was a fun coincidence. One of those things where you can't believe it keeps on working.

Didn't watch the Grammys. It's so massively irritating that CBS tape delays them for the West coast. but at least that means I know what parts I want to see. Or as someone put it on Twitter: Adele Adele Jennifer Hudson Chipotle Adele Foo Fighters. Sounds like that about sums it up.

Is he? Well, that explains a lot. I watched Sucker Punch and really wanted to like it, but could not get over the fact that it was a combo videogame clips montage set as a longass music video. I feel like he could use the music video directing style crossing over into film a bit more artistically, though, everything of his that I've seen has been very pretty but seems kind of clumsy and trying-too-hard.

Can't really disagree, since he is a massive stylist and the fantasy levels do go on too long. But at least for me, I thought the movie played better the second time after I understood what the story actually was and I could appreciate more of the visual symbols. But yeah, he does let his message/story get a little too overwhelmed by the MUCHNESS of it all... :(

IDK. I'd watch a movie filled with ladies in mechs fighting zombie nazis. An hour and a half of that? YESPLS.
