movie review: Fast & Furious 6

Friday, January 31st, 2014

Finally watched #6! What can I say? It was fast; it was furious; it had an amnesia plot! Mostly, I’m very glad I already knew exactly what was going to happen, because I hate surprises. (Despite that, I’m not really sure why the ending wasn’t Elena pulling up with a badass baby sling and taking […]

Okay, here goes: Title: No Last Call Author: marcicat Word Count: 2900 Rating: T Summary: Flash meets Coulson’s new team (two of them, anyway) just as they’re becoming his former team.

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

A note to my future self: If you’re ever in charge of a group of people (or just a part of the group — heck, even if you are observing a group from outside), and things seem to be running smoothly, it would behoove you to recognize that this is most likely due to the […]

not quite a j-animal

Monday, January 27th, 2014

There’s still two J-months left this year, so I’m filling in this Monday’s cute animal with a k-animal. Baby Kiwi Bird!

then and now

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

I remember being pretty freaked out when Riker said “Fire,” and that was in the days when “hiatus” wasn’t even a commonly used term. Shows just kind of… went on summer vacation and ran reruns for a few months. But can I just say I’m actually kind of glad that Sleepy Hollow doesn’t come back […]

movie review: Despicable Me 2

Friday, January 24th, 2014

On a spectrum of sequels, with Mulan 2 at the ‘so horrible I wish I didn’t know it existed’ end and Thor 2 at the ‘surprisingly exceeded the original’ end, Despicable Me 2 was definitely closer to the Thor side. Thing I Liked: I liked that they referenced the first movie without making it a […]

It’s cold enough today that I drove my car for 20 minutes, then let it sit in the sun for half an hour while I did errands, and when I got back in there was still frost on the hood. Snow is predicted for tomorrow — about an inch. The big question: is that an […]
