Oh blah-dee, oh blah-daa
    List O' Things:
  • Stress stress stress.
  • WarioWare: Smooth Moves is hilarious fun.
  • Slept terribly - I'd fall asleep and have hot dreams about Flickr people I know but haven't met.
  • The land of Passive Aggressiva! :)
  • Heroes isn't holding my attention as well as before January.
  • I have zero creativity and 365 days is getting harder.
  • thegman169's father has been viewing my photo stream... hope he's cool with bondage.


WarioWare is based entirely on control motion (and is awesome, did I mention that?). Each new way of holding/moving the control is introduced by a Kama Sutra-like description.
I end with a quote:


The Finger Food
Holding the back end delicately
between two fingers, point the Form Baton forward.

The regal french fry remains
one of nature's greatest muses.

Current Mood: sore sore

Heroes

The Niki plot is annoying. Episode 1: She's in jail. Next ep: she's still in jail. (I haven't watched last night's episode yet, but I'm guessing she's still in jail)

Re: Heroes

I agree. Her plot is really lame and her character uninteresting. DL is also a tad flat most of the time. At least the kid is a good actor.

I think my problem right now is that the plot is starting to drag. They were gunning hard before the holidays with lots of exciting things. Now it's sort of puttering up a shallow hill.

The voice acting is half of the awesomeness for those instructional videos. But Wario Ware is a bit too ADD for me to really enjoy.

In an opposite vein, I really try to enjoy Heroes, but it's TOO SLOOOOOOOW for me, even from episode one. It feels like nothing ever happens, especially with their trend of "five minutes of establishing shot, 30 seconds of plot, 20 seconds of character development, rinse, repeat ad nauseam."

I agree about the ADD-osity of the game. I think that's part of the fun. Lots of react less think. zen and video game play.

And the voice is awesome-incarnate. :)

I like the character development but it's becoming predictable now. The characters have stagnated with the exception of Hiro and even his is slowing down. Niki/Jessica pot is just annoying me, likely because of how TV portrays dissociative identity disorder.

Oh yeah. That's totally the case, and that's what makes it good for what it is. I certainly enjoyed it when I played it, but not enough to buy. There's just not enough substance there for me to really get into, you know?

I actually haven't gotten too far into Heroes. It just didn't keep my interest long enough, but I've heard that the Niki/Jessica thing is especially irksome to most folks. I can't judge for myself, since last I saw, she's just blacking out all the time and killing people, which to me looked like Fugue (which is more interesting in that context than DID).


You might be vaguely interested, if you have the time, in the ARG that's running for Heroes right now. It might bring back that depth that the show seems to be lacking these days. :)

I am totally confused?


How'd you know that my dad is following that?

And how'd did my dad find your photostream?

I'm still wondering how he found your stream. Very confusing? Still trying to figure out how he found our streams...
