In 1993, Steven Spielberg brought the epic Michael Crichton novel to life and gave us a movie that was amazing. That movie was a huge part of my childhood, and I still love it to this day. I watched it yesterday and its still one of the coolest movies ever.

Then we got The Lost World. A fun movie, but nowhere near the same level of awe as the original. Then we got Jurassic Park 3... and, well, in the words of Ian Malcolm: "That is one big pile of shit."

Now twenty-two years after the first film, we have Jurassic World.

And now, after twenty-two years, we finally have a sequel worthy of the original.

Jurassic World is awesome. It is incredible. It's not quite as good as the first movie, but it's better than Lost World. It's also about ten billion times better than JP3, but that's not saying much. XD

Without getting into spoilers...

[] Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas-Howard are great. Pratt's character, Owen, is kind of like if you mixed Alan Grant and Indiana Jones. Dallas-Howard's character is the manager of Jurassic World and while she comes off a little annoying at first, she quickly grows into awesomeness and has some very kick-ass scenes. The kids in the movie are good too, Vincent D'nofrio is fantastic as the villain, and we even get B.D. Wong's return as Dr. Henry Wu - who amazingly still hasn't learned that cloning dinosaurs never leads to good things, but at least he has more than one scene in this movie. XD

[] The dinosaurs are great. They are CGI as opposed to the potent blend of CGI and practical effects in the original, but they're still pretty cool. The "Indominus Rex" is actually quite awesome and terrifying. And the raptors - you guys, the raptors, oh my God, you know, the raptors. Blue is badass and they actually do use the whole "trained raptor" thing in a much better way than the trailer suggests.

[] There are small nods to the original all throughout the movie. From Masrani quoting John Hammond's "spared no expense" line, to the original visitor's center, to even a guy wearing a Jurassic Park shit. It's never so in your face that it gets annoying, and it's just plain fun.

[] Did I mention we have Star Lord versus Kingpin. Even without dinosaurs that's awesome; but we also have dinosaurs.

All in all, Jurassic World is fantastic. Go see it.
Sayonara, 2014! 

You were a good year. 

Not everything was great. Had some problems, made some mistakes, but hey - most of it doesn't matter anymore, so whatever.

I have high hopes for 2015. New city, new state, hopefully very soon a new job... lot of opportunity. I have a lot of goals, so if I can manage to complete even half of them - then hey, that'll be cool.

One small caveat - I'm cool with writing pretty much anything, any genre, any theme, any rating, whatever - but if I'm not familiar with the characters or universe you requested, I may have to turn it down. I probably won't, but I feel like I need the disclaimer.

Dec 2nd, 2014

 

I sit on the floor of my new bedroom typing on my old laptop in. Thanks to the moving guys putting my bed in the middle of the U-Haul behind rows of stuff, I slept on this floor.

 

And yet, I cannot find it in myself to complain about anything. This new house is a magical wonderland. It is enormous, first of all. I have never lived in a house this big and have only ever even been inside one when visited my cousins who are quite literally millionaires.

 

The house itself is old, but the interiors are all new. Apparently the last family who lived here left the house in quite a sorry state, so the Landlady replaced everything. New carpets in the bedrooms, hardwood floors throughout the rest of the house, new oven, refrigerator, microwave, sink, and dishwasher. New doors, new lighting, new heating/cooling system – heck there’s even ceiling fans in every bedroom. It is like having a brand new house, but at the price of an old house.

 

I love this house. I don’t know how I feel about living in Mountain Home yet; but good God do I love this house.

 

 

A few hours have passed since I wrote that first part. We unloaded the U-Haul. I now have my bed in my room, and the temptation to sleep on something softer than the floor is strong. However, I must remain awake because the internet people are coming at some point.

 

There is much to do. I need to move some boxes from the garage to other places in the house, so that we can all get our stuff once we’re settled in. Plus they’re on their way with a second load of our junk from the old house. Including my TV. I want my TV. This house is far too quiet.

 

In the daylight I can now see the backyard. I like it. It’s small, and a large portion of the yard itself is taken up by the back porch and a paved in section, and also a basketball court. Plus there’s a shed. All in all in means very little actual grass for mowing. That pleases me.

 

 

A few more hours have passed and now the Suddenlink guy is hooking up the internets. We left our router in Missouri, and it is being brought on the second load (that shall also bring the rest of my stuff.)

 

Still, with any luck I will be online (admittedly from a wired connection in the sun room) very shortly, and all will be well in the world.

 

… well, except that I still have a metric fuckton of stuff to do today; BUT I’m probably going to blow it off and goof around online because I’ve done that so seldom lately. ;_;

 

Of course, if you are reading this, then that means that the internet is online! Though if the only person reading this is me, in my kitchen, freezing my feet off on this cold floor without the capacity to get online – then I shall be sad.

 

At least I have pizza.

 

There’s some sort of problem with the cable hookup in my room. I may not have TV in my room. I rarely actually watch TV anyway, and I will have Netflix and DVDs; but still. I like having TV. Hopefully this shall eventually be solved.

 

Oh well. I still have pizza, and I still really love this new house.

 

 

Since I first began to write this latest update, I have received unfortunate news. The cables that are in the walls right now are no good. We’ll need to get new cables installed. It may be a few days before everything is up 100%, but he is trying to at least get one spot where the internet will be available.

 

If you’re reading this, then he succeeded.

 

 

With each passing minute I grow ever more concerned. I don’t even know what this guy is doing now. I’m beginning to fear the internet may not be connected tonight at all. I can’t blame this on SuddenLink, but how they respond to a problem will go a big way in my first impression with them.

 

I pray SuddenLink will be the awesome internet I’ve always craved; and not a cold carbon copy of Mediacom. (Actually they’re supposed to be giving us 75mb per second speed, so they’d actually be amazingly better than Mediacom even if things are a bumpy installation.)

 

I can hear him speaking on the phone outside, but can’t make out what he’s saying. I hope it’s not “I can read minds and I shall kill this man who doubts us”. That would be weird. SAVE ME COULSON!

 

… I don’t have TV or internet and I’m stuck on my old laptop that has none of my unfinished stories or Steam. And all my books are packed away. I AM BORED.

 

 

Daring duck of mystery, champion of right,

Swings out of the shadows, a dark wing of the night,

Somewhere some villain plots, but he’s out of luck

Here comes – Darkwing Duck!
(when there’s trouble you call DW)
Darkwing Duck!

Let’s Get Dangerous.


Darkwing Duck!

 

… I’m bored and I’m not going to sing 90’s cartoon theme songs with a stranger in the house. So I’m typing them.

 

Sometimes, Some crimes, go slipping through the cracks,

But these two, Gumshoes, are picking up the slack

There’s no case too big, no case too small,

 

Okay so he left. The situation is not good. Going to have to replace most of the cables. I have a modem I can connect to in a few minutes so hopefully I’ll be online tonight.

 

online but I have to sit on the living room floor to use the computer so I may not be on much until this whole thing is resolved.
