Hope all the mothers out there had a happy Mothers' Day. Mine sure did. Curt and I invited her to join us (well, more like Curt invited both of us) for brunch at Scholar's Inn, where I got a seafood salad sandwich that I don't think I'd order again - it was pretty good, but I'm not a big fan of cold seafood in general, I guess. There were lots of varieties of eggs that I could have ordered instead. After that, we all went to watch The Avengers, which was a great movie even though I didn't watch any of the other movies featuring those characters. It was entertaining, and after the cold open, I was never confused about what was happening. There was a lot of humor that worked well, the action was fun and exciting, and I cared about the characters, although probably not as much as I was supposed to because I hadn't watched their other movies. It sort of makes me want to watch some of them, particularly the Iron Man movies. I'm not a "fan" of Robert Downey Jr. as such... not that I dislike him, but there are people who make memes about him, and I don't see the appeal. I understand where they're coming from, but like almost anything else that people love way too much, if I don't think it deserves that adoration, I tend to distance myself from it. (See: Shakespeare, complete works of.) Still, Tony Stark made every scene he was in. On the other hand, I believe Joss Whedon gets most of the credit for how great the movie was, and indeed, he got most of the credits at the end. What I'm saying is that I think everyone should watch The Avengers unless you completely hate fun. It lives up to the praise it's getting.

Still haven't found the time to do commentary for the second Flight of the Amazon Queen video, and I need to rewatch it before I do, but I've got little else to do tonight.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
