BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 11 (Zootopia Comparison)

As you can see up there, I finally got to check out Zootopia this week, and I’m happy to say it exceeded all my expectations. I’m including the full text of my comparison between the movie and my series below the Read More tag, so check it out at your leisure. Hanami’s theme is also finished, so check it out on the Music page. The usual link to my DA page is below, where also I cover photography problems, Godzilla movies and monsters, and the final Captain America: Civil-War trailer featuring you-know-who.

So Disney bought Lucasfilm today…

Yes, they bought it. The whole shebang. Star Wars, ILM, all of it. And according to the press release, Episode 7 will be released in 2015.

I would be much more excited about this if I still had one iota of interest in the Star Wars franchise.

I loved the original trilogy, and I appreciate the incredible impact its had on culture, but I am so over it. They’re done to death. Every aspect of Episodes IV, V, and VI has been overanalyzed, examined, and expanded upon in umpty-squillion novels, video games, comics, etc. etc. etc. There’s nothing else to mine from them, except maybe giving a few more characters with split-second appearances convoluted backstories.  I’m sick of the lightsabers, the catchphrases, the parodies, all of it. Star Wars has completely saturated every aspect of geek culture, and I just want it to be over.

Maybe the problem is with me. I grew up during that brief period when Star Wars took an extended break, and Star Trek truly flourished. I grew up wanting to be a Starfleet officer, not a Jedi Knight. I’ve never had the same emotional connection to SW as I did to Trek… they’re great movies, sure, but I can name dozens of other sci-fi/fantasy series that I like better. Nothing in SW has ever moved me the way “The Inner Light” did, or the scene in “Relics” when Scotty drinks to his absent friends on his old bridge, or the final pull-back shot at the end of “All Good Things”, or the meeting with the Vulcans in First Contact, or Spock’s death, or George Kirk’s sacrifice did. Star Wars is fun, but that’s it.

I know I’ll see Episode 7 when it comes out, and I’ll be vaguely aware of the inevitable firestorm of fanboy criticism and wankery that will erupt when it does, but I can guarantee you it won’t be the magical, transcendent experience that it should be. It’ll be just another movie, and that’s fine by me.

Reblogging because I don’t think I have ever seen a platypus walk before and…just…squeak.

Venomous, duck-billed, egg laying, amphibious, mammals…
Welcome to Australia…

Number one rule of Tumblr: you must always reblog a platypus when it appears on your dash.

What’s a Platypus? This is a Psyduck

I use these things to shammy my car..works wonders.

Keeping with my policy, I’m going to be refraining from posting stuff from this episode (gifs, fanart, screencaps, etc.) until after the episode actually airs.

(The one exception would be if I find some wallpaper/background-worthy screencap of the episode that doesn’t spoil anything huge.)

HAHAHAHAHA, FINALLY, IT’S OUT, IT’S FUCKING OUT. NO MORE MABEL WITHDRAWL.
