Kill the Headlights & Put It In Neutral

Let's see...terrorist attacks in London. My older brother woke me up at 10 to tell me, & I'd gone to bed at 5:30. I don't know why I'm still awake. Well, I do. I was planning on making a bunch of Samurai Champloo icons, but I only made two, and even then they're variations. 01a. 01b. I kind like the first one more.

I finished reading the Ominous Omnibus (a.k.a. the first 3 Lemony Snicket books). They were decent. Every book is essentially the same. Count Olaf kills a Baudelaire or Baudelaire relative (usually while in disguise), Mr. Poe sucks at life, the Baudelaire orphans tell everyone that that man is Count Olaf in disguise, he's found out because of the cleverness of the orphans yet gets away in chapter 13 to return and repeat the cycle. They were entertaining and provided a nice vocabulary lesson. For instance, I learned the word dowager and another long word which meant corpulent which I currently forget. It began with a b. I've started reading Lolita, and have checked out 2001: A Space Odyssey (film) from the library. I'm almost dreading watching it. Damn you, Kubrick!

Anyway, I'm tired and Paranoia Agent is starting. Not that I really care, but it seems like a good reason doesn't it. I do like this beginning though; it's so weird.

Lovely icons.

The Lemony Snicket books eventually get out of that cycle, but... not by much. Which is a little tedious, in and of itself, but they are children's books. Also, 90% of the people in that series do not classify as sentient lifeforms. Woe.

2001 is love! <3 I don't think you'll like it, though. :P

Thanks.

Good to hear. I may read the others later after I've finished the list of books I want to read. That thing about the characters is very true. They make me angry.

I took it back without even trying to turn it on. I just don't think I can even stand it.
