I’ve decided that I need to update my blog more – to do this I think I’m going to try and start a series or two and hope that keeps me talking to you guys. So I’m thinking the series for Fridays & maybe one later in the week to focus on writing/my comics. Sound good?
We’ll start things off with the first edition of – “Liliy’s A Fangirl” (Fangirl? Friday? Ha ha. So original. *flips hair back*) – Where I talk to you about whatever geeked me out the most this week that you probably saw once or twice on Twitter. xD
Fright. Night. <– No contest. Fright Night won over all movie fandom for the past couple of weeks. I even have a screen of Jerry (Farrell) on my desktop at work. It has caused much teasing but they can deal with it.
Loved the 1985 version of the film like you wouldn’t believe. The actors were amazing (Roddy McDowall~ We miss you!) and the plot was fun. The 2011 version kept that same fun but modernized the story line to more of a Buffy thing. Both worked well and I’m a fan~
Best part of the series? The Old School Vampire rules. It’s just one of those things that should be in vampire stories. Their stupid, stupid rules that counter balance the fact otherwise they’re mostly all powerful and undefeatable. How else can you have a guy immune to bullets be stabbed with a pencil (wood!)? I’m sorry Edward Cullen – but you wouldn’t last a day if you had to follow the rules. :P
Or maybe you’d finally be bad ass. One of the two.
The DC New 52 started this week with JL#1 – I like. I liked it a lot. Green Lantern & Batman played off each other well and we start things off with a Superman vs Batman showdown. That’s the way to start a new series.
Can’t wait for the next new series to start Wednesday~
And thanks to a one-day Comixology Sale, I got all of Marvel’s Ultimates 2 for $14 – good deal. Only read through the first part though. Crazy Thor…oh Thor. *hugs him*
Also, still trying to get through Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist. It feels like I’ve been reading this book forever. >_< It’s not that it’s bad, but it goes back and forth between stuff I care about and stuff I don’t, so when I hit the parts I could care less about I tend to put the book down and forget it exists. >.> The parts with Eli & Oscar are good though. XD
Also, Friend gave me her book in progress~ Really good so far~ Need more time in the day to sit down with that. *_*;
I’ve been pretty lax on anime lately, but CrunchyRoll is helping that. <3 Them. That subscription is totally worth every penny for ad free streaming. I really hope more people support this service & funimation for streaming. Yay Legal options! :D Current favs include:
No. 6 – These episodes won’t come out fast enough and I missed yesterday’s new one…drat. *_* But seriously – Rat & Sion are the cutest things ever and I love it. Also, animation is win.
Otome Youkai Zakuro – Saw this series on an amazing AMV & loved the animation. So, I looked up the series on Crunchy Roll (it’s complete) and loved it. I watched the entire thing in about two sittings. Think Tactics, but with more girls & less shounen-ai everywhere. Very cute fluffy series about three pairings (including a canon twin OT3! XD). It even got me choked up there toward the end of the series with the more serious episodes. A tear may have fallen out.
Blue Exorcist – This series is just cute. >.> Slightly losing interest though with the later stuff. It was more fun when Rin was hiding his powers. XD
“Start a Fire” by Ryan Star.
That is all.
