Sunday Ramblings  
As the weather reports have predicted, it's raining on this fine Sunday. It has been overcast since Friday, so it was only a matter of time before it started actually sprinkling. Ah, springtime.

Something interesting happened this weekend. I was mindlessly flipping through television channels one evening, because of late-night boredom, when I abruptly stopped once seeing Dick Casablancas on That's So Raven. Playing a member of a boy band. Immediately I said aloud, "Hey, it's Dick!" After witnessing this I went online and searched through Ryan Hansen's IMDB filmography profile, cursing myself for not having done so before, and noticed he's been in other things I recognize. One in particular was he appeared in the pilot of Carnivàle, to which I have the DVDs for. I thought it was quite interesting. Oh, and I might have been slightly converted to liking Dick Casablancas. Granted I didn't before, but he's gradually winning me over. Yes, he's insanely obnoxious and hormonally on overdrive, yet he's highly entertaining. I don't know what it is, but his character intrigues me.

I still want to see The Da Vinci Code, and after reading the raving reviews and reactions from it's first opening weekend, I am anticipating seeing it for myself in theaters (if I ever get a chance to, that is).

I haven't seen his appearance on Raven, but I did hear about it. I love Dick because he unapologetically is a jerk. That's just how he is and he's that way to pretty much everyone. I can't help but love him because he usually cracks me up.

He was hilarious in that episode! Granted, I didn't catch it from the beginning, but once I recognized him I went, "Oh, snap! That's Dick!" inside my head. I want to say let's do a crossover with VMars and That's So Raven, but I'm afraid about the evil plotbunnies that could come out from that.

Dick doesn't mind himself being called upon his obnoxious behavior, which is perhaps why I'm starting to like his character now. I don't know how that happened because, ever since last season with the retellings of Shelley's party, I pretty much wanted to despise him. However yes, his behavior, mannerisms and one-liners are quite amusing and crack me up as well. I guess it's because he's entertaining that I don't mind him now. Although I'm wondering what his initial reaction to what happened to his brother now, after the finale....

Dick Casablancas is every guy who ever skeeved me in high school -- and yet, somehow I manage not to mind him. Sometimes. (Still not really a fan of the show, though.)
And him on Carnivale, that's just skeery.

Yeah, Dick's character pretty much sums up all those mindless idiots who think the world revolves around them and think they're all that and a bag a cheetos. And in the beginning I didn't want to like him, however now? He's growing onto my Liking Radar because he's so outrageous, but it's that funny kind of outrageous. Not the stupid kind. He does make me laugh. Hey, he's Dick!
