Art, Manga, Spin-offs, BSG and MMORPGs

[001] In the Naruto manga, I wish this was canon, so very much.

[002] FYI: my internet has been on the fritz for the past few days but should have it back by Monday - Time Warner will be coming over to take a look see and hopefully they'll have it figured out.

[003] Never realised that I hadn't made my FMA filter public until just a few days ago: here it is, if anyone would like to keep track of the fandom!

[004] On possible X-Men spin-offs:
  • Gambit movie starring Taylor Kitsch? Bloody hell, NO, he was the weakest link in the movie. (though I give the actor props for acknowledging Anna Paquin's awesomeness XD )

  • Storm spin-off movie starring Hale Berry? Just, no. Never thought I could hate Storm until her portrayl of the character.

  • Deadpool spin-off? YESYESYES, especially if it goes down like Reynolds would like it to. Kinda worried though. It could go wrong in so many ways, (like what happens at the end of Wolverine: Origins)


[005] The latest draykonis!art is total male eyecandy - I love her original/non-fanart stuff :3

[006] Future MMORPGs to try out: Aion, Lineage and City of Heroes

Discovered the first one via buttfacemakani's post. Its possible to sign up to the chinese beta of Aion via these instructions + these screeencapped steps and get it translated to english via a patch \o/

Though I wish Blade & Soul was available in english already, since its gorgeous. NCSoft seems to have all the fantasy games with eyecandy >_>

[007] Finally marathoned True Blood and Battlestar Galactica! Can't wait to see more of Eric in season 2 of TB, while BSG was gritty and complicated and messy and awesome.

The best thing and worst thing about BSG is it being such a brilliant hybrid of both Drama and Scifi genres. It also makes me think of a line from The Mummy Returns, "rather weighty, this"

In a way it reminds me of my love of The Dark Knight movie which is hard to watch very often because of its weighty issues. On the other hand, BSG is more about the characters but the darkness of the storyline kinda makes it hard to watch in the background - unlike other sci-fi shows like Stargate SG-1 et all. It's still brilliant and very powerful...just hard for me to marathon repeatedly.

Am now playing Terry Prachett's Discworld movie, Colour of Magic to lighten the mood XD

[008] Looking at this comparison image of the casts of Star Trek (TOS and the 2009 movie), Karl Urban seems to have the most presence in the new cast :3 While Chris Pine is pure eyecandy, I find my mind turning to Urban and Eric Bana when I think of the movie. Just, really really hot men.

[009] DevART pretties:
  • The Deathnote storyline in a nutshell, LOL

  • Pretty girl - by janaschi - I can't think of a description to do justice to the art >_>

  • The very first fanart and artist comment to make me want to try watching South Park (from season 4 or 5)

  • Fabulous Starfighter art by the creator here and here!


[010] Oh yeah, and l_vera01 has an awesome post of the Star Trek movie that just had me nodding my head through most of it XD
