    We picked up our tree today actually! Going to decorate next week! Naw, we have just a random assortment of ornaments. From traditional things like bulbs and lights and snowmen figurines, to decades-old school and childhood Christmas projects, to Star Trek and other genre figures. My dad's favourite is a light-up Bird of Prey .

    Glad to hear. Sounds like you'll be able to relax soon enough! Good luck on them! Thanks, I got one over with yesterday which was okay, and it was definitely going to be my hardest. Only other one is a take-home exam starting Saturday which I'm not worried about at all.

    By all means, rant away! It's far, far from a good movie. I think my standards were just so low after Batman v Superman that anything better would have been amazing. JL is certainly not a good movie but I did find it entertaining. I agree Superman had some really cringy dialogue and acting throughout the movie (also the CGI animations of his body were particularly bad). I like Gustin way more as well. I think I liked Miller right after seeing it because he at least provided some comedy while BvS was so devoid of it, but having gone back to tonight's Flash I definitely agree with you. (Oh and he really mispronounced "viola" when he joked about playing it, and as a violist it was a cool reference but a conflicting one ). I'd love to hear what you think!

    Yeah, all the big theatres near me have been sold out for a while. I did dress up in my Next Gen uniform last time for the early screening, maybe I'll do it again this time . Oh nice, I didn't even notice there were Black Mirror trailers yet! I just watched them, and that's definitely Trek. Star Trek went into some pretty deep stuff occasionally so I think you're probably right.

    It snowed for a few hours back in October which got me really excited for early snowfall this Christmas but there's been nothing yet! But otherwise, there's certainly a lot of Christmas spirit here . I'll be picking up a tree in a couple of weeks and decorating with my brother, as is tradition.

    Just need to get through final exams first. I'm done by next Monday at least. Do you have finals?

    I haven't actually seen any of the Thor movies yet . Nor Wonder Woman. But yes, I did enjoy Justice League. I saw the audience rating on rotten tomatoes is quite a bit higher than the critics reviews, and I agree with the audience rating a lot more. Superman's CGI mouth was pretty distracting . It was just... weird. It was definitely the worst in his first scene, and in later scenes his upper lip just looked kind of blurry. There was really just some terrible CGI mainly when they were animating people - super obvious dummy models.

    Did you get tickets for an early Star Wars showing? I managed to get some at my local theatre for December 14!

    Yeah, I've seen so much activity on reddit about it. It's good to see people are taking initiative and voicing their concerns. I'll certainly be keeping an eye on the next couple weeks. Hopefully under the next president they will work towards reversing it as soon as they can, if it does go through

    I'd seen that clip before! I can only imagine how frustrating that kind of stuff would be to happen.

    Hmm that's a good idea too, doesn't look like too hard of a costume either. Not yet, but I definitely will be making the mask! Probably just with some paper-mache.

    Sounds like a classic Thanksgiving . Can't believe we're within a month from Christmas and the 2018 already!

    I saw Justice League yesterday and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. There were some weak moments and the CGI looked pretty bad in some places but it was definitely better than Batman v Superman and many of the other recent DC movies. I really liked Ezra Miller's Flash.

    Also... heard about the net neutrality stuff going on for you guys. I hope it works out for the best in the next two weeks.

    There's an insane amount of stuff in games like those! Sounds like you'll have to go back and redo everything . Speedruns are mindboggling. They can make for some pretty funny live stream moments too.

    Yeah it keeps pleasantly surprising me by not falling into the usual tired plot devices they always do.

    Yeah I kind of have the hair length for it and there aren't many female characters that have short brown hair, so it works out well. And it's way more wearable than my costume last year which was Squirrel Girl... that tail! . Will you grow out a moustache? That would be dedication

    Thanksgiving is coming up for you isn't it? Hope you have a good dinner planned!

    Haha I have that habit too! I have to check every nook and cranny and do every side quest possible before moving on in games like Fallout. It's slow going but I get super rich with all the ammo I'll ever need pretty fast . Glad you're enjoying it!

    Ahh well, I still tune in every week and it does have some good moments. Flash is pretty good this season although the last episode was terrible. Supernatural is actually really strong right now! Really enjoying it so far. There's a nice balance of monster of the week/main storyline, a cool new character, and the Winchesters are actually talking to each other rather than keeping secrets bottled up to explode at mid-season .

    My brother's birthday is a few days before Halloween so we always have a nice party. I didn't do much other than that. I did dress up to school again (Star Trek Next Generation science officer). I'm already planning next year's costume - I think I'm going to try to be Princess Mononoke! Did you have a costume?

    Good to hear!

    Sounds good , I hope you enjoy it. I'm getting further and further behind in my shows with school being so busy right now (big midterm on Monday ). I guess that is one thing PS4 people get that console people get I've heard such good things about that game!

    Heh, you're not missing much at least now. With last season's villain gone the show feels pretty stale again. Yeah that was a nice reference. Can't see them bringing in Batman as a cameo but one can hope.

    Any plans for Hallowe'en?

    Nice! Haha I didn't know either. I never watched either show but I have seen clips from Malcolm in the Middle and it seems pretty funny. Now I'm curious what you mean . I haven't actually seen much of Louis CK.

    Well you know where I stand on that . The episodes are short and there are only 37 so it'll be a fast watch! Give it a shot, especially since you watched the movie! Mia was really dislikable but I found Light (when he wasn't around Mia) wasn't that bad. They made him more sympathetic than in the anime.

    I agree with you about L at the end.

    Did you ever end up catching up with Arrow? Just about to sit down and watch the season 6 premiere in a minute. And then Gotham, Supernatural, and Hell's Kitchen tonight too

    Haha okay!

    Thanks!

    When Light screamed when he met Ryuk, everyone watching laughed out loud, it was so ridiculous. However, we also agreed that we would have done the exact same thing . Light did feel more like a regular teenager than in the anime, and we all actually quite enjoyed that. He felt more like a good guy honestly out trying to do what he thought were good things, being a teenager making some stupid decisions, and as the movie went on, instead of being like original Light getting more and more corrupt, he started realizing how far Mia/Misa was going and tried to stop her. Mia was really the bad guy. And in the anime, Misa was super obsessed with Light and he takes advantage of that and fakes loving her back; in this version it felt almost like a role reversal in that respects, with Mia faking loving him (in my opinion, at least) in order to abuse the Deathnote. He was certainly a different Light but I actually really liked him and thought his character difference worked with the movie. Also the way he plans everything out at the end with the Deathnote was really cool.

    Heh I noticed the Asian guy dancing part too! Yeah I can still understand wanting to do a movie-length, but they only used 1.5 hours; it could easily have been a half hour or even an hour longer and would have been better paced as you said. Lakeith was great as L! Light's dad was well done too, I thought.

    Okay last thought, about the music. One of the people I watched it with had an interesting theory for why the cheesy 80's song played at the end with Mia falling. Not sure if it was entirely serious, but it's basically that Light and Mia's relationship was super fake and blown out of proportion, including the I love you's from Mia in the second half of the movie, so what better song to represent that relationship?

    Do you think L uses the Deathnote on Light at the end?


    Man that's so disappointing . He didn't deserve that at all. People seriously need to chill out about that stuff.

    Yeah I was looking for it on Netflix and just assumed I'd find it. The final season of Orphan Black was good, but not as good as the first 1-3 seasons. I still highly recommend it though! I still haven't gotten around to watching Legends! But it did pop up a few times in Flash so I really should, soon

    I would looove for them to play more rarities in NA tours. I'll certainly be interested to see what kind of songs they play in the US soon!

    Thanks ! A good birthday present was finding out today that I passed!!! Well, I hope you have good profs/interesting classes this year at least!

    Oh man... Death Note . To be honest I watched it with a friend who also appreciates the manga/anime and... we didn't hate it. I actually liked a lot about it. We went into it with an open mind and honestly there was some stuff that was really good (... and other stuff that was preeeetty bad). We concluded that with different music choices (which were REALLY bad at some points) we'd give it about 6 or 7/10. I think it was doomed to fail anyways because of the whole "whitewashing" thing... but personally I don't think that should have been a problem. Also people seemed to be expecting a perfect one-to-one adaption but it would have been really hard, if not impossible to fit the story - which is basically a long, drawn out, methodical cat-and-mouse game between two people locked in mental chess - into a movie length, so being disappointed with the fast pace (and resulting required changes to characters and story elements) seems unfair. It would have been better as a tv series, but considering what they had to work with people judge it way too harshly. Anyways, it wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible. /rant

    Watched the first couple episode of Preacher season 2 and it's good to be watching it again! I've heard of some of the crazy stuff they've been doing and can't wait to see for myself. And I finally got around to the last season of Orphan Black - which I still highly recommend for you to check out . Yeah me too, if it's not on Netflix I'm much less likely to watch it. Running out of show ideas that are easily accessible but at least the regular shows like Supernatural are coming back soon.

    I'm glad you've re-discovered them! Yeah their Showbiz performance was incredible. It's really aged well and Matt sounded amazing. I can only hope they play it again like that in the future. Europe seems to get the better setlists though.

    I should find out if I passed my qualifying exam by the end of this week. Back to school tomorrow... how are things going for you on the school front?
