The grass is always greener.  
++ Wank is funny, except sometimes when it's not. However, the recent Heroes wank is made of lulz and headdesking combined, which does include some spoilers about something that's going to happen near the finale. Oh Heroes fandom, you slay me. You really do. As for the "shocking twist" it's either going to be what I think it is which is a red-herring, or actually be just what everyone thinks it is. I'm kind of going back and forth with this show anyway, practically reading up on spoilers since I'm not watching. So, heh. Either way, will be grabbing the popcorn and sitting back for this, fo'sure.

++ Brand new full-length Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince trailer. HOLY. FUCKING. SHIT. O_O This is probably going to be the best one yet.

++ Due to Bear McCreary's genius I am, in my spare time, learning how to play certain pieces of his scores. Particularly the "Final Five Theme" that has become my favorite piece at the moment. There's no sheet music as of yet, so I have to relay on my own devices to try and mimick the notes to the best of my ability. I haven't played the piano before, but I do know how to read music, even though it's been some time since I've done so. Needless to say I've found a new hobby, whee!

If anyone wants to know, I've been watching/listening to this guy's tutorial for inspiration of how to play the theme. He's incredible, and explains and shows it well.

++ How is it that people have already got their hands on Caprica? Was it with the pre-ordered special or downloading? *is confused* OH! AND BSG WAS ON THE NEW CSI! Well, technically in a sense, it was an homage to the reimagining of a classic cheesy scifi show that everyone hates the idea of. Anyway, there were cameos by some of the BSG cast, including RONALD D. MOORE HIMSELF! Don't believe me? I provides teh proofs. *brb loling at the awesome*

The Heroes stuff is tiring, my whole take on it is that they are wasting ZQ's talent with crap story lines, I don't care if Sylar is doing this to get an Noah, this shit is old and tired. Thank goodness Star Trek looks awesome, I need my ZQ fix and Heroes isn't cutting it. I would love to see other actors in awesome things; Milo is in a pretty cool looking movie called 'Armoured' but I miss Ali, Sendhil, Adrian, Greg, etc....

That is so cool that you are playing some of McCreary's stuff, he is a genius and I love everything he does. I got the TSCC soundtrack from HMV finally and it is so worth the money.

I personally downloaded caprica but it is on sale everywhere April 21. I am holding out for a box-set after the first season airs.

It's one of my pet peeves with Heroes nowadays, is the overexposure of certain actors/characters and underusing other ones and making random ideas for storylines just for ratings purposes. I mean sure, it's been improving slightly since Bryan Fuller's return, but it's come to that point where I just no longer care what happens to these characters.

Bear McCreary is brilliant with his mind, and just reading his blog and the amounts of detail he gives off about how to go about composing a score for a scene and the entire process...makes you really appreciate his work. And I love how passionate he is about the things he's composing, too. The guy knows his shit, and I love him for it.

Awesome. Thanks, I knew it was coming out soon but I was confused since some have already seen it and I'm all bwah?!

Uhm, I'm not that sure about HP's film (mainly because I love the part about the Gaunts and it's not going to be in the film T_T And also all the Ron/LavLav, Ron/Herm, Harr/Whoever... too much, thanks xD The couples I ship are NEVER going to be on screen of course, they weren't in books LOL). Though Bellatrix keeps being awesome ♥ And so it is Draco, and we got the moment when Harry curses Draco so I'm going to looooove that part (yeah, I love that moment as the hardcore Draco/Harry shipper I am, lol). And, well, I don't know. We'll see. PoA is still my fav, and it's likely that it'll always be ♥ Anyway, I'll go to the cinema totally open-minded. Yes, because I'd like to enjoy the film :3

Uhm, I think Caprica was leaked or something like that. Still, not sure about that :/
Renée: Six. It's good to be a Cylon.rogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2009 07:59 pm (UTC)
I'm really looking forward to it, actually. I know that it's not going to be like the books but for me it's about how they make the story flow and move forward and judging from the trailer itself, it's definitely going to be epic even with things not there or things that shouldn't be there or whatever. At least it's better than the Twilight nonsense. XD

I loved PoA too. ♥ I saw that one several times in the theaters, actually. :D Alfonso Cuaron did amazing. I really wished he'd been brought back for the final installment.

I heard it had been leaked somewhere, though I'm going to wait until it's officially available for purchase.

It's all about the SHOCKING TWISTS! with that show, even though it is gradually getting better than "Villains" did thanks to Bryan Fuller and his brutal honesty and comeback. The show is more for the wtflulz now than for fan dedication.

I can't wait! It looks so awesome.

Oh, I've always wanted to learn to play the violin as well! So pretty.

It is pretty lolarious that episode. When first watching it I was like "OMG IS THAT GRACE PARK? AND RON MOORE?!?! OMGWHUT!!!" and it's pretty hilarious. Of course I think the episode was written by a former BSG writer so, I'm guessing that's how this happened. Haha, which is kinda awesome. :D

I am at least two weeks behind on watching heroes. I need to get on that I suppose. I just don't seem too interested in it anymore.
Renée: Heroes. S1. Claire Bennet.rogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2009 07:30 pm (UTC)
Me neither. They kind of screwed everything up with timelines and characterizations, and spending too much screentime on certain actors/characters and leaving others hanging out to dry. I'm just tired of the repeated bullshit, even with Bryan Fuller agreeing that Heroes has been made of fail since he left.

IDK, I just don't care anymore. I do keep up with the cracky shit they pull though, even if it hardly makes sense in continuity sometimes. But whatevs. I miss the days when they knew what they were doing....

Those spoilers weren't shocking, I thought she might have been the mother of Sylar's son back when we didn't know who the mother was lol.

On Harry Potter, it'll either be good, or made of epic fail. After the last movie, I was like, I give up on the HP movies. And then this trailer comes out and I'm like, maybe not lol.
Renéerogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2009 07:28 pm (UTC)
I honestly don't really care about the whole thing. I just love watching fandom explode since I'm no longer watching the show.

The only HP movies I thought were made of fail were the Chamber of Secrets (and that was because Columbus has a knack of repetitive things...) and Goblet of Fire which I felt was chobby editing-wise. But I loved the last film and this is just going to rock my world, I think, judging from the trailer.

Definitely the funniest part are the people who are like "Sylar would NEVER BETRAY HIS LOVE FOR ELLE in such a way!" considering that he *murdered* Elle.

Wow, their idea of love is very different from mine.

Back after wank.

Dead. So dead.

No, not me, but the show, if it goes down this route. I mean, Come On.
Renéerogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2009 08:09 pm (UTC)
I do have a feeling it's a fakeout, though. I mean, Sylar cannot possibly ask Claire to be in love with him since he obviously loves himself and nobody else, fo'srs. But perhaps this "proposal" is of something dangerous and kinda like blackmail, in a way, esp if it's to get back at HRG. IDK. I refuse to think otherwise.

Crappy storylines are crappy. And people wonder why I don't care for Sylar anymore...

*flails so hardcore at the Harry Potter trailer*

I had not seen that one. Mmm, Half Blood Prince. MUST. SEE. This and Where the Wild Things Are. These are my two must see movies for the year. So far. I'm fickle. I could add to that.

Also, WIN to the BSG scores. Bear McCreary wrote some awesome music for that. *pats her iTunes* ... *is clearly a huge music geek today*

Ah, Heroes. See, I've only watched an epi here and there this season due to lack of control of the remote, but I pretty much bailed when Sylar started being nicey-nice. I realize he gets more evil later, but ... the story line was so lost on me by that point, I didn't care anymore. Except for the moment depicted in my icon. 'Cause. That was awesome.
Renéerogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2009 09:44 pm (UTC)
Half Blood Prince and Where the Wild Things Are will be amazing films. HP because well, it's HP and WTWTA because it actually looks to be a decent adaptation. :)

He truly did, he's brilliant with his composing. Srsly. *loves*

I watched a few episodes to see how it has progressed from the epic fail from what "Villains", and it did get better somewhat, but there are A LOT of changes that need to be done to make it watchable again. I mean, there are some things I like about it, but with how they've completely butchered characterizations? Yeah, not so much. :/
The Large Purple Weedtracy on April 18th, 2009 10:09 pm (UTC)
LEARN HOW TO PLAY ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER, PLZ. Or is that already what you mean by FF theme? Do they have another theme?

Caprica was leaked last week, I think, and I have it but I've yet to watch it.
Renée: Six. It's good to be a Cylon.rogueslayer452 on April 18th, 2009 10:14 pm (UTC)
It's the theme you here whenever there's one of the Final Five on the screen, and the one that Starbuck plays on the piano. But it's really a variation of "All Along The Watchtower" so yeah, I can totes learn to play them both. I plan on it. CAUSE I ARE A CYLON DIDN'TCHA KNOW?! ;D

I'll wait until it's out to purchase it, as I'd done when Razor came out.

Well, the whole idea about Sylar proposing to Claire is WEIRD. Period.

Renée: Six. Satisfied.rogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2009 06:08 pm (UTC)
IKR? I don't know if it's supposed to throw us off track or if Kring is being absolutely serious, you can never tell anymore.

I'm dying at the Heroes wank! Frakkin' awesome!

I'm looking forward to the Half Blood Prince! Not long now :-)
Renée: Echo/Sierra. BFFs.rogueslayer452 on April 19th, 2009 06:41 pm (UTC)
LOL, Heroes wank never fails to bring the entertainment one way or another.

I know! Being that they postponed it from premiering last year for frakking Twilight (srsly, wtf?) but I guess that could've been a good thing? People went and saw it, decided it wasn't the greatest ever, and now Harry Potter arrives and people already know how epic it's gonna be so it's more HP >>> Twilight now more than ever. :D Idk.
