Note: this bit was written last night.
OMG I am watching Stargate:Infinity and it is perhaps the worst thing ever. I think the animation is by the same people as "Captain Planet" only, you know, ten years later. Except with Neon Genesis uniforms.
The theme song? "Built by ancients so long ago / the stargate later we broke the code / now it takes us through the universe / on our mission to get back to earth." No, I am not kidding. Yes, I believe they are trying to rhyme age/code and universe/earth.
"Being an office, a soldier, just being an adult for that matter, means making decisions and living with the consequences." Wow, thanks for the after-school special!
Also, there's a Deanna Troy character: "I sense that it understands that we want to be friends."
Also, the villain must explain his entire plan all "then, I did ..." and "then, I shapeshifted." Oy.
They find a sort of Alien chest-bursting alien and say "could it be an ancient?" Ah, yes, the Ancients were frequently represented as sorta green snake things on the show. Or, wait, maybe that was the Goa'uld.
Oh. And they ride around the universe in dune buggies and a motorcycle and one of them has mechanical wings. Mechanical. Wings. That enable him to smash through stalactites without getting bruised. It's, um, magic.
And a grab-bag, so I don't make another post with single-line paragraphs:
Citizen's bank may suck, but at least it doesn't suck this much.
Also, I am looking for a yarn I saw in passing lo these many years ago. I want to make a little shoulder bag from it. I'm pretty sure it was a Noro, hand-painted, but not a silk or wool; it was a cable, probably DKish weight, and vaguely... metallicy and thick. Not actually metallic, but with that weight and texture and shine that one associates with synthetics. I dunno. It was selling for around $12/skein, back in the day. Anyone know it?
Bush gets a belated thwapping for this statement on the Iraq war: "We'll succeed -- unless we quit." That was in the context of a speech in Vietnam about what we learned from the Vietnam War. Yeah. Really. *pulls out backup mackerel* THWAP.
Also, fish-thwap related not-so-G-IPing. Sadly, this is not Gabe, and his fish is not broken, and it's, like, cod
shaped and not mackerel at all. Nonetheless, it is a fish-thwapping icon, and all I had to do was scrub out the previous text and some of the motion blurs and repeat the noise. Whereas I'd have to draw
