hells_half_acre: (On the Fence 2)

Oh man...ok, I really should have put Folsom Prison Blues(Ep 19) in with my early post, because there was commentary on What Is And What Should Never Be (Ep20), so I go on FOREVER about it. Plus, I shouldn't have tried to watch Ep 20 and the commentary tonight and written it up, because now it is 3:30am and I am friggin' exhausted.

Anyway, here goes:


Folsom Prison Blues and What Is And What Should Never Be )


And I'm done! Holy carp. Now it is nearly 4am. I am an idiot. I'm pretty sure that my review goes downhill intellectually towards the end, and that there is probably a lot of stuff I will kick myself for not including tomorrow...but man, I be sleepy.

16 days

I like this little comic by Somerled.

16 days until my Epic China-Singapore-Vancouver adventure (with side-trip to Redmond, WA)!

I did some laundry last night and realized that I had not done laundry for a month. This means two things: A) I own a lot of underwear. B) I have been wearing nothing but pyjamas way too much.

Really, the only thing left for me to do is to exchange my currency (for which I have to drive into Ottawa) and figure out how I'm packing everything I need for 6 weeks into a carry-on backpack. Thankfully, there's one thing doing laundry has taught me: If I do laundry more often, I don't actually need that much.

I also have to write down phone numbers of the people I'm going to visit, both for myself, and for Mum in case she needs to get in touch with me. Mostly though, I am looking forward to being MIA when it comes to communication. I would like to take this opportunity to run-away completely for a bit.

I want to have adventures and not tell anyone about them, because that is my favorite part of travel - all those secret things that only I know. I like to dance around people's assumptions...tease them with random unconnected details. Make them think they know me, think they know where I've been and what I've done. I'm probably not good at it. People probably figure it out, or at least some do. Others I tell honestly...or as honestly as I get. My friends know me better than I know myself, so there's no point playing with most of them. 

It's because I'm partially obsessed with perception - the way we are all numerous people at once. A thousand parallel worlds that we can never see, but that are the reality for others. I am not myself to you, and I never will be, so why should I try? It's easier to discover - to guess a little at - who you think I am, and play to that. Reinforce the ideas that I like, that I wish I could be maybe, that I'd like to think I am, and try to diminish those things that I don't agree with - whether true or not. I never lie, mind you. I omit.

I think I like traveling because it is a constant state of metamorphosis, in which I never ever change. I am always the same and I know who that is better when there is an illusion of change around me. When things stay the same too long, I forget sometimes what it is like to just have myself and nothing else.

I don't want to watch All Hell Breaks Loose because it's going to be so sad....


16 day until my trip. That IS actually enough time to get through all of S3, if I continue doing two a day. Seriously, I need a job watching shows and taking notes, I think I have found my calling...does anyone know of such a job? I really need a different job, I shouldn't have the time to watch two shows a day and take notes.

Why does Supernatural have to be so sad? I need the Supernatural equivalent of an "Everybody LIves!" episode of Doctor Who. EDIT: Wait! To the Plastic Winchesters!!! They'll cheer me up! ^_^

On another note: I really like the Tori Amos lyric in my icon, but I wish it was done a bit fancier with a better picture of Sam. If anyone would like to help a fella out, I'd appreciate it. My photoshop skillz are non-existent...basically all I can do is crop and hide blemishes, everything else is beyond me. EDIT: New Tori Amos icon from Mara is quite nice, agreed?
