Blankety-Blank

Dear lord I'm facing the same problem my sister has over on her livejournal: a lack of topics to write about. However, I hope the end to Ralph's story in 52 isn't crass-tastic.

Return of From the Bookshelf

Hiya today I review more comics for you:

Rg Veda Vol 8: Knowing what I know about Kokumoten I actually feel sorry for him since his bitchy wife and daughter actually do care about him. (In a wierd dysfunctional way). The Six Stars predictions on how the story will end is a hoot.

Yu-Gi-Oh Vol 10: Mai seems to change pretty quickly while Kaiba is still the same, Joey really didn't need to be yelled at.

Ghost World: Nice that they poked fun at revolunaries, I wonder if the title comes from the fact that the two main characters don't know very much about the people they talk about.

Green Lantern #16: When is Cowgirl going to become the sluttified Star Sapphire? At least the JLA is easier on Hal.

The Helm of Fate: Ibis the Invincible #1: Not actually bad despite the fact that it suffers from second-stringer syndrome. I bet Danny secerely imprinted the new costume so he could look cool.

Transformers Spotlight #2: Nightbeat: Nice to know that the Ark's disapperance has been noted by Cybertron. At least Nightbeat investigates things during this so-so story.

Maybe I should start a fan club in the vein of K.N.O.B.B or H.E.A.T in order to bring back certain second-stringers, Ladies of Infinity Inc. anyone?

I gave blood yesterday.

I freaked out because my blood pressure was 90/60! I repeately asked the nurse if this was normal and she said it was. I never had low blood pressure before, it's ususally good.My Mom sometimes had low blood pressure so I wonder if I inherited this from her. I had to wait a long time to give blood, this happened before which makes me wonder if students really want to give blood. I ate lunch and looked at jewerly. After that I went to the mall, bought strawberry body butter and looked at books.

The Tragety of Jean Teasdale (Online edition)

Holly and I are reading The Onion, we are mostly into the life of one of the fictional characters Jean Teasdale. At first it looks like she is bubbly and sweet but then it turns out she is shallow and uses her sweetness to hide from the world. She is also unable to handle criticism, seeing as an attack by people who "can't see the joy in life." Holl thinks she's going to break down and hold her husband Rick hostage until he impregnants her.

I have to admit her fuzzies pictures are cute.

Mom Came Yesterday.

Yesterday we met our Mom at Ala Moana, it was a short visit in which Mom took some kids to Science Bowl. (A state science quiz show with competing schools). We met the kids and ate dinner at the Food Court. Mom also tried to get a new cell phone, don't know if she succeeded. Also found out about the new Pokemon which has a baby form of Chancey! Can't wait to buy a Pinpuku plushie, or whatever they call her in America;)

The Movie was better than the Book!

I read the short stories that make up Akira Kurosawa's movie Rashomon, In a Bamboo Grove and the movie-title story. Let me say that this led me to believe the movie made the story BETTER. Mostly by allowing the woodcutter to witness the crime. In the short story it stops with the dead husband. But by allowing someone who didn't particpate, we can attend a small degree of distance. The story is made deeper by showing all the people involved in the crime sillier than they paint themselves out to be. It also makes a stronger case for the story's theme of the subjectivety of truth and that people will willingly lie to make themselves look good.

Anyway it's still better than the story!

Me and Silent Movies

For some reason, I enjoy watching silent movies. Anyway I borrowed Treasures from the American Film Archives disk one and I found some surprising things. Mostly that even during the first part of the American century women could be strong and westerns can be harsh. (However this may be the exception that proves the rule). If I find any more intresting things I'll be sure to tell you.
