Beecake

I was rewatching the extended version of Return of the King tonight. The end still makes me a little teary, despite how many times I've read the book or re-watched the movie. Yeah. What. I love the damn series. Sue me.

Also, just to get it out of the way-- NO, I am not Orlando-Bloom-crazed. I admit that he's a fine young man with many upstanding physical qualities, but seriously not my type. Infact, I've had my eyes on the two actors who played my favorite hobbits: Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd. I decided to get on Google and searched for the big fansites to get news on Billy Boyd. Not quite so much on Dominic Monaghan because I basically know what he is up to (looking for another job after LOST and, uh, having all kinds of fun with his hot girlfriend, I'm pretty sure... they haven't broken up, have they? ;]). I went and checked Boyd's Official Site, and lo and behold... I discover his band, Beecake.

Yeah. I'm totally behind all the "Hobbit" news. Sorry. My bad.

I'm actually really excited that he's pursuing his musical career. I love Billy singing. It's one of my favorite scenes in Return of the King!

All right. I couldn't have a geek blog without mention some Hobbit-love at one point. Check out Billy's band.. and enjoy!

Avatarding: Response

I would probably say that I am an Avatard. I own a stuffed Appa that I bought on Ebay for far too much money. I also have action figures. What can I say, I'm easily swayed by toys.

I too saw the season 3 trailer. What I'm wondering is: How can they stretch this beyond 4 seasons? Will they have the guts to end it, or cash in on the success?

As awesome as season 3 looks, I see already we are nearing the end. I knew going in that there probably wouldn't be more than 4 (since we've only got 4 elements covered). But it's been such a success, I could see Nickelodeon forcing them to continue, which, in my opinion, is bad.

As much as I love the show, I don't want it to become like SO many anime shows where there are like 70 episodes of filler and 30 of plot. I'm tired of seeing TV shows last long after their prime just to make a little more money.

That said, I can't WAIT for season 3. I want to see Toph and Katara kick major ass.

Avatarding.



I refuse to admit that I am an Avatard.
I enjoy the show.
I really like it.
I do!

I'll admit that I'm an anime nerd and all kinds of other embarassing things, but I just can't fall into the Avatarding.

With THAT said, let's talk about Avatar: The Last Airbender upcoming new season, shan't we?? As usualy, I'm behind the whole entire world and only got around to watch the season 3 trailer that someone filmed during the Comic-con panel. I have to admit, I got a little pitter-patter in my heart over it... ESPECIALLY since it seems like it's a season full of awesome action. I'm a sucker for good action stuff.

I am also amused by the indications of time passing by all the hair-changing that our main characters has gone through. Namely, Aang's hair and Zuko's flowing locks, so it seems. No doubt the fangirls are going to trip all over themselves over him even more. Including me, I'm thinking (YEAH-YAH BABY! PRINCE of EMO WITH LONG LOCKS GO GO GO!) Though Sokka's still my man! He's a little charmer!

The fanboys are also gonna get some eye-candy with Katara running around in tiny pieces of white cloth. I think everyone wins in this season!

I don't pay much attention to the Avatards and the fandom, so everything that this new season will bring are gonna be plenty of surprises for me. Good surprises, I'm hoping.

Comic-Con 2007 - Initial Report

San Diego Comic-Con 2007, much like it's previous years, was huge with too many people nerding all over the place.

This year, I was a half a regular attendee, and then I had one foot in the "professional" side of things. I was with my good friend, Christy Lijewski (creator of Next Exit and RE:Play), for the most part, accompanying her to her panels, signings, and talking to different comic book publishers. Needless to say, it was very interesting for me!

Unfortunately, despite attending the convention for all four days, I managed to miss most of the people I had wanted to see. I definetely made it a point to say hello to David Mack and Stuart Sayger. I also found Aimee Major and she drew adorable cats for me. I also picked up Mack's The Shy Creatures book, which is all together delightful to own.

I kept my eye out for people I knew from the Bendis Board but never found any of them. I don't know too many of them, really, and many of them do not know me for I fail to be active on the forums anymore. It's been years since I saw Pat Loika or Taki Soma though and I do miss them.

I didn't really get to attend a lot of panels. I attempted to get into the "Avatar: The Last Airbender" panel, but failed miserably as the room filled up quickly. I hate standing in line... and I stood in line for that one, too! My friends and I got into the Futurama panel, which was a lot of fun as a lot of the voice actors were present for it. Futurama fans can look forward to new movies coming soon.

I missed the Live Art party on Friday, but I did get to attend another great party on Saturday night-- though the details of that party should be kept a secret among us. Yes. It was that awesome. Sorry... no dirty stories about myself here! Only about other people.

Overall, the convention wasn't too bad. Even though Saturday sold out, the crowd wasn't as bad I expected. The convention did an amazing job controlling the crowd and I am very appreciative of it. It was exhausting having to be there for all four days and I wished I had done more and seen more people-- but that's always seem to be the general feeling that Comic-con always leave me with.

Pictures and more will come soon!

we are purtiful

We are self-proclaimed girl-GEEKS who needed a place to write about it! We don't really do anything special with our lives, but we do enjoy the occasional comic book or fantasy film. Also, the occasional pie. With ice cream. Yeah. Ice cream.
