highways: [Super Junior's Siwon, chin in his hand.] (SUPER JUNIOR ☌ 從頭到尾)
I still hate Joss Whedon.

I thought Prometheus was pretty hilariously bad, like, bad to the point of loud laughter in the theater at multiple points, but this appears to be a minority opinion. I might have actually liked it anyway, there's tons of terrible campy scifi movies in my favorites lists, but it's so pompous it's hard to actually enjoy on, well, any level, except I guess visually. The effects are pretty good. But, seriously, this is a film in which characters with any sense of self-preservation whatsoever are basically painted by the narrative as freaks. I could argue for calling nearly every onscreen death a suicide.

Speaking of stupid science fiction, I have high hopes for the Total Recall reboot.

The romance subplot on Legend of Korra sucks a lot and it's actually killing my interest in the show. I'm starting to hate it whenever Mako does anything, because it's always gonna be a romance related thing and ick. And Asami's fabulous and deserves better than this jealousy bullshit okay.

Me and [personal profile] thor watched 華麗的挑戰 (Skip Beat!) just to watch Choi Siwon and Lee Donghae's glorious faces for fifteen episodes, and mission accomplished, we finished it this afternoon. Now I'm not sure what drama to start next, either 痞子英雄 (Black and White) or 籃球火 (Hot Shot). The first one is actually supposed to be good; the second one has Show Luo and Wu Chun. Hmm...

My Chinese is actually improving, I think, but go figure, I do hours of Chinese stuff every day, even if it's just watching dumb clips of 100% Entertainment on Youtube. I'm not sure I'll even be able to afford to take more Chinese courses at UHM next fall, but I do know my Chinese isn't nearly where it's gotta be. 加油, self, 加油.
highways: (TALES ☌ when you fall everyone sins)
I spent most of last week sick in bed, and since whatever cold I had was somewhat triggering to my asthma (which, due to finances, I currently manage with a combination of self-diagnosis, other people's medication, and hope) I've spent quite a lot of time lying in bed recently. This is how I learned that walking through a doorway causes your memory to basically do a soft reset, which is easily one of the most revelatory facts I've ever read. ("What did I go to my bedroom for, again? Didn't I need something in here?") I've also taken this time to become embarrassingly invested in the Legend of Korra and in the Mandarin speaking branch of Super Junior. I've written fanfiction and made myself a new Tumblr.

So, all in all, I've been incredibly productive ... if we define productivity as the complete opposite of what it actually means.

But that's likely going to continue, since I have absolutely nothing serious scheduled in the near future. My internship ends next week, which is straight up bizarre, and this weekend I'm going to see my family because my father, mother, and brother's birthdays are all within the next week. And tonight is the Avengers! The MCU was my main fandom for a while but Joss Whedon is my mortal enemy, and I am still cautiously pessimistic. Regardless, I'm seeing the midnight showing with [personal profile] climax and [personal profile] chelicerae. Hopefully it won't make me want to put out my eyes or cry endless tears!
