I have internet at home!

Okay, so I've had internet at home for about a week now, but then I came down with the plague and spent all of my time sleeping. Or explaining things to people on the internet, but I'm pretty sure I argue with people on the internet in my sleep these days.

I'm working at walking away. The problem is that I tend to walk away into a new conversation, which then involves someone else getting into an argument.

(This is all non-anon, so if you're really curious, you can probably find it. It's pretty predictable stuff.)

Anyway! I also watched TV, too! And now I will tell you all about it.

Revolution )

Also, there was a spoiler clip for Supernatural released, and I will now explain my feelings thusly.

Supernatural 8.1 )

So, what'd the rest of you think?

Today I found out that there's a spinning wheel part called 'the mother of all'. (it's the bit that holds the bobbins and the flyer). I don't know how this escaped my notice before.
Longish talk about the last two weeks of Doctor Who will go up later: this entry got kind of long. Meaning it's five pages in word. Uh, whoops?

Overall: I really, really liked the first hour and a half, but was less enthused by the second half of the second episode.

LINKS TO DECLUTTER MY TABS:

*On the making of the Game of Thrones Opening Credits. Also, the heavy metal version of the Game of Thrones theme, over the opening.credits: AWESOME

*One Hundred Articles You Should Read Available online.

*On The Doctor, Influence, and Violence.

*Watch Mark Sheppard through the ages

And not a link, but a random thought: If Balthazar decided to envessel Tyrion Lannister, would anyone notice the difference? Up to and including the point where Balthazar-as-Tyrion angel-teleports away. My guess is no.

Just in case you were wondering, this is a happy post. Don't worry, I'll probably be mixed about some episode of Supernatural sometime soon. Maybe.

One of the local coffee shops in has gone from being an combination anarchist bike shop/coffee house to a place that serves bacon infused lattes. Does that raise or lower the hipster quotient in my neighborhood? Discuss.

Also: links. I think I have more of them somewhere, but these are the tabs I have open.

The Big Map Blog: Old maps with high resolutions and a decent zoom interface. Pretty, yo.

Also: Graphs of population change in US Urban areas from the 2010 census. Meaning: OMG 2010 CENSUS DATA IS OUT AND READY FOR US TO PLAY WITH SO EXCITE. Look, I like these things, okay?

China Mieville writes a pitch for Iron Man. Why am I not living inside his brain full time? Plz be letting me know.

Castiel, the motion picture: Just in case anyone hasn't seen this yet.




SPEAKING OF CASTIEL THE MOTION PICTURE: SPN 6x17 )

So, I was planning to make a 'it's gotten above freezing-it's a heat wave!' post, but then we had an actual heat wave. For a week. The igloo's roof collapsed. The ice sculpture has gone from this five feet tall unwitting homage to beekman tower to a couple of six-inch high spikes. The mannequin heads have been brought back inside (apparently my downstairs neighbors made a decision not to move them around, so they got covered by layers of snow and then slowly rediscovered-random bits of flesh exposed as the snow slowly melted.)Yesterday I thought 30 degrees felt cold.

It's still mid-February. That's just not right. I'm almost glad for the temperature plunge and the next round of snow coming up.

I'm apparently four months late in reccing this, since apparently it was everyone's twitter-darling around Halloween, but if you like horror and aren't allergic to comics, check out His Face All Red by Emily Carroll. If you're more interested in romance, there's also Anu-Anulan and Yir's Daughter, which is super cute.

So apparently google has a lot of neat gadgets to help you create fancy-looking interactive charts with not that much work. I don't have enough time to play around with this now-but I'm leaving it here just in case any of you do. I'm expecting you to use your powers for good. Or at least for lulz.

The American Festival Project- Photo essays of America's lesser known local festivals. I really hope they add more to this-it's a great idea.

Alan Taylor, the guy who used to do the Big Picture (my favorite news photoblog that I keep on linking to because it's pretty damn awesome) has moved to here. Now with a 1280 px option for extra pretty! The Big Picture is still going on, with a revolving set of editors.

Felicia Day as an elf in a webseries spinoff for Dragon Age. Hi, my name is Switchbladesis and I am a giant fangirl. Interview with Felicia Day about this can be found here.

Speaking of which-apparently there's going to be a walking dead game? Considering this is telltale games making it, I'm guessing it's more of a point-and-click adventure than a first person shooter. The same release mentioned a fables game (like the comic-not fable 4), which means I'm reimagining Snow White and Bigby as Sam and Max.

Supernatural!

Oh show! You know what I like and you decide to give it to me all at once. 'What do I like?', you might ask?

WELL LET ME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT )

 ::headdesk::  Nothing like realizing that you've submitted the wrong version of something . . . three days too late.

Ahahahahah.  ha.  ha.

Nothing important, everything's cool-I'm just a little embarrassed.  


SO! That Supernatural! (spoilers) )

In short-uh, kind of meh on Sam and Dean this episode, but everything else was awesome.
