So, now that it's over and people have had a few days to meditate on the subject, should I watch Lost? I've seen two or three episodes in total so far, scattered across seasons, without enough context to remember much from any of them. I'm asking for spoiler-free advice on whether putting the time and effort into watching the entire series is worth it, or if (like many have said about BSG) the ending makes the rest of the show not worth it.

Emphasis: SPOILER-FREE.

The internet has furnished a review of one of my favorite (and the least-known of my favorite) movies!

http://www.strangehorizons.com/reviews/2010/01/cast_a_deadly_s.shtml

I call the review spoiler-free except in a couple of quotes which I think are more impressive in the movie if you don't know they're coming. Otherwise, great review.

Eight years ago I was crazy excited by the idea of 64MB of information on a keychain. People are regularly carrying 1,000x that information on their persons these days. Neat!

Hahaha, I found my first exposure to slashfic. Harry Potter, of course!

Ah, the decade in review.

So [livejournal.com profile] zapf found a Top 100 Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Shows Of All Time list online, and turned it into a meme for which shows he had seen. I shall now follow. For these purposes, a good rubric for "seen" is "can name two characters from," although for my crap memory I'm also including "can describe two characters from in detail" because I suck a names.

The list! )

32/100

I feel like I should make this a checklist. :)

Tonight I auditioned for a part in the Post-Meridian Radio Players' The Big Broadcast of October 30, 1938, to be performed on October 29, 30, and 31st. Will know by the weekend if I have a part. I have been seeing posts about auditioning for this for a long while, but held back doing anything about it for a variety of reasons, until in a rush of self-something last night I signed up for an audition slot tonight. There are a lot of people involved that I like and want to spend more time getting to know. And, with that said, since some of those people were the ones I was auditioning for and who now decide my fate ;) I shall say no more. Catch me off-LJ if you want my audition thoughts.

Then [livejournal.com profile] usernamenumber and I watched episode three of Defying Gravity. The show is getting to the end of its rope as far as "ooooooh what's going on?!?!" and needs to pretty damn soon establish that there is indeed a solid premise and plan behind it. That said, it's still neat and I'm still going to watch the next episode.

My living room now has a futon. The entertainment center is hooked up. I can actually, gasp, socialize (in terms of enjoying various forms of media) in my house now!

[livejournal.com profile] zapf helped me kick off this new era of the Pie Hole with a night watching my favorite movie in the world, Cast a Deadly Spell. He had never seen it, and I have now fixed this problem for him as I am willing to for quite nearly everyone.

I inch closer to being moved in.

This'll be quick - it's time to head to Arisia!

Repo last night was awesome yet again. I love being in a crowd that gets so worked up over something. I caught a lot of things in the movie I hadn't previously that made it flow better, too. No amazing shouts from me this time, though a bunch of people now stole my line-of-awesome from last time. And there were a few awesome new ones from the crowd, too.

Unfortunately it's hard for me to gauge how awesome my outfit was because I pretty much walked in and walked straight into someone wearing a version that involved about 10x the amount of money I put into mine. Hers was NOT borrowed boots and sewn-by-hand feathers, and it looked amazing and pwned me completely. So all sense of my badassery just kind of melted away - I mean, sure I still looked good, but not like THAT. But don't worry, I still got pictures and I will share them. (And when I went up to Terrance, the writer, in the lobby, he still immediately knew which character I was and was enthused by my prepwork. So there ya go.) I think I'll be wearing it Sunday night at Arisia for the Repo showing then, but not doing Masquerade with it. As I said, sense of badassery gone.

Heading off to Arisia now. Today I'm working Info Desk from 12-4, then taking a little break, and then in the evening.. I'd like to have time off to enjoy the Circus Dance and other fun things, but I HAVE NO VOLUNTEERS COVERING INFO DESK. Growl. So I might be stuck there instead. Come say hi!
