A few random bits as they occur to me. Because I have nothing more entertaining to report.
Flushed the Tivo over the weekend of everything I didn’t think I was gonna be watching. All that’s left is a few movies; Cool World, Snatch, Trainspotting, Heavenly Creatures. Watched all the Lexx and Red Dwarf that had backlogged, deleted the Lupin III without watching (it’s fun and all, but I don’t have enough time). I find it very odd that this wonderous device which frees me from space and time actually ends up dumping another obligation on my head, since if you DON’T watch it, it’ll just start piling up. Like dirty dishes or laundry. Yow. I may just cancel a few season passes, like I did with the Simpsons; sure, I LIKE these shows, but do I really feel like having to watch two of them a day just to stay current?
I found an IRC server which several fansub groups use as a distro point and collected about 2 gigs of stuff in one day. My cable company probably hates me right now, but at least I’m not SHARING, I’m just LEECHING, which is actually more bandwidth friendly and less likely to be spotted.
And may I just say there’s some very, very weird hentai anime out there? And when I say ‘weird’ I really mean ‘stupid’ or ‘perpendicular to reality’. Because anybody can have kinky llama-based beastiascatofecalphilia, but it takes a certain breed of mind to develop something with absolutely no resemblance whatsoever to the operating bylaws of known social reality. For instance, one anime I spotted managed to mix a maid uniform and leather cuffs into a waitress outfit which later becomes a Kekko Kamen-esque magical girl power armor costume. That’s every anime stereotype rolled into THE SAME GARMENT. Wow.
God, I need a vacation. Work is still a pile of madness since The Only Other Web Guy is still on jury duty and will remain so until at least Thursday. Fortunately this weekend is a holiday, and I’ve tacked on two leave days for Friday and Tuesday, so I’m going to have a nice five day weekend to attempt to relax, watch TV, play games, and hack NWN a bit. Maybe go see Daredevil, too.
Okay, back to work for me.
