If you’ve read the recent controverstial article Eat This: 5 ways YOU delay your meal, then you might already have an idea about how much bigger this became than probably anybody figured it would be.
Some people were mad, some people thought that this guy had it dead on.
I fall in this grey area of smack dab in-between ‘slight disagreement’ and ‘total agreement.’
But hey, maybe I’m biased.
In the link below I dive into my take on the article, take a look into both sides, and make a list of my own.
A lot of people had some questions about the season finale, or this season in general, of the US Being Human so I thought in the link below I’d strike up a little conversation.
Beware though, for the web is dark and full of spoilers, click at one’s own risk.
Someone is always going to be having a worse day than you.
Try and remember that.
Well. What a long week this is turning out to be already.
I haven’t even watched the third episode of Game of Thrones yet. Complete blasphemy.
I have, however, gone to Dayton and back, watched my friend get a pretty sweet tattoo, got my left nostril repierced, worked a whole bunch, further embedded a splinter into my heel in the process, made my rent, my phone bill and more (sweet) as well in the process, cleaned my entire house (with the exception of dishes…okay, I don’t do dishes), worked some more, and successfully completed the first season of Doctor Who and am finally, officially hooked.
I miss Christopher Eccleston already though (love you). I don’t know what it is about that man, but he does something to me.
Ever since the first time I saw him help Peter Petrelli learn how to be invisible and other stuff in Heroes he has just been the cherry on my sundae.
Anyways, I really need to manage my priorities which means not picking up shifts for a buncha jerks who’ll never get me back, taking me to a grand total of nine shifts this week.
Also, blog more, but not when I am supposed to be sleeping, such as now.
So sleep, yep. That’s what I’ll do.
Got off work at about 2:30 yesterday, I’ve been fortunate enough to have shorter shifts this week, just…more of them, so I guess it all evens out doesn’t it.
Anyways, yay, 2:30…pm, not am, and I didn’t have to be at any of my other jobs, that almost never happens.
So I’m all set to just lounge around, I got my Netflix going, I’m caught between rewatching season two of The L-Word for the thirty-seventh time, finishing the UK Being Human, because I am seriously behind, or starting Mad Men, because if you can believe it, my ass has never seen that show, I only recently decided to finally get into it because I guess Jessica Pare is in it now. And I enjoy her quite a bit, especially in the mouth area (call me).
So. I turn on The L-Word in the meantime and start getting ready for a relaxing Wednesday afternoon of doing abosolutely nothing.
Cut to me writing off and on from pretty much 3pm-3am, followed by another two hours of editing.
Ahhh! And I didn’t even start Mad Men!
However, the boyfriend is out of town this weekend to set up a Kenny Chesney stage or something, so I will have plenty of me time to start in on the series.
I will also be getting a tattoo on my foot tomorrow, maybe, probably.
My friend’s ex is a tattoo artist who will be going out of town after this week for six months. So she is heading to his shop to get her Tank Girl tattoo finished and I figured I would tag along and keep her company.
Problem is, now I want to get a tattoo too!
Here’s the thing, I am not one of those impulse tattoo guys (or ladies, whatever).
Every tattoo, however meaningless it may seem to you, maybe even some silly, it means something huge to me. Each and every single one, including the joke one on my butt, even THAT one has a whole backstory.
So, here is my problem. I know exactly what I want for tattoos but two are supposed to be a sort of buddies tattoos with my long-time friends, one is a specific design by a different artist that I only intend for him to do, so that’s out, and the last is freaking HUUUGE.
I’m a big nerd for quotes, 9 out of my 10 tattoos all have words in them or are exclusively quotes, but for this big one I wanted to actually to do something with those words. Maybe make some beautiful artwork out of them this time, but I am the worst freehand artist ever (I can rock a still life though, let me tell you) and find it impossible to explain what I want to someone who doesn’t know anything about syfy, nerdy, supernatural stuff, in specific Game of Thrones and The Southern Vampire Mysteries (also known to the tv world as True Blood).
So, I refuse to get this tattoo until I find an artist who has read the books, not merely watched the show, and can help me put the ideas that are in my head to pencil and paper, and eventually to my skin. Get it on there!
The one I was planning on getting on my foot is a quote from The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but my two issues are, well, my friend and I are supposed to get them together and also, now the book is a movie and it’s all hipstery and Emma Watson has the tattoo, but then that also kinda just makes me want to get it more…
I have a couple other ideas…okay, ENDLESS ideas, but I am getting so sick of having to cover up at work, it’s about to be 90 degrees and I’m going to be serving patio beers in pants and three quarter sleeves as it is so I really just don’t know where to put any of them, I call this my Jon Snow complex.
I just don’t have enough body parts! Or something.
So. I might not end up get anything new at all because, I don’t know if you guys know this, but incidentally that stuff is permanent.
I might just get a touch up or maybe a little add on.
Either way it’s a night off work, in a different city, with my best friend and hey, that sounds pretty fun. Even if I have to spend two hours of that time just jealously watching her get tattooed.
So, I don’t know hardly anyone who watches Being Human, US or UK, in my everyday life, but incidentally a lot of you guys do.
As I was looking at my stats, I saw that a huge chunk of my hits came from people searching for answers about the finale and future of the show and, although I did answer some of them in my ‘review,’ it was very lengthy and I, by no means, was writing it with the thought that anyone other than myself would pay it much mind.
So, maybe you made it all the way through, maybe you didn’t, but for those of you who just wanted to figure out some stuff, hopefully I can be of some help.
Let’s start off with the most important thing, The US Being Human will absolutely be returning for a forth season.
Was there ever really any doubt?
As for the UK, version it concluded its final season earlier this year, making it a total of five in the series.
Now, a lot of you are wondering what the hell just happened with all those characters, specifically Sally and Aidan’s wife, Suzanna, played by Katharine Isabelle.
A lot of stuff was going on that wasn’t necessarily obvious or expected.
I think they wanted to leave things up for discussion and debate, leave us with a little mystery.
Fine by me, let’s discuss.
Sally peaced out. I have absolutely no idea what that horrible witch lady’s name is so we will just be referring to her as simply that. Wait Rose? No, I don’t know.
So the witch lady came back at the very end and mentions something we’d never really discussed before, what is this about destroying a ghost’s ‘death spot?’
We knew the witch was coming for Sally, we saw the fire, she saw the fire, she tried to play like she didn’t know, but she had brand spanking new powers that don’t come from being a ghost, who then became a poltergeist, who then went to purgatory, who then was a zombie, and is now a ghost again.
Why would you suddenly be able to overpower a full-blooded Were or create fire out of nothing.
So Sally and this witch are clearly connected and this witch is ready to put Sally in her place and does so by effectively making Sally’s death spot no more.
Where ever they went is where the discussion begins. Was that Hell? Why would the witch want to go down there too? How are Aidan and Josh going to know where she is?
Well. They won’t. I don’t think Aidan an Josh are going to be able to help her right now, besides, they’re both probably going to be pretty preoccupied next season.
Her only hope for them being help is if they are able to see that her death spot, that crack in the tile at the end of the stairs, is gone. Which. I mean, it’s pretty obvious but, like I said, they are probably going to be busy for at least a couple episodes.
But my guess is that yes, they’re going to Hell, and maybe that witch doesn’t mind going too because she’ll be
on her own turf. She practices necromancy and clearly is doing some sketchy stuff, so yeah, I could see her being right at home.
Aidan’s wife is alive, yes. Well, sorta, kinda. I mean, she is there, walking and being absolutely gorgeous. Now the question is, what happened after past Aidan tried to come to her rescue? With her or their son? Was he able to find enough of a spark in her to turn her? She had only recently allegedly drowned, who is to say she really died right then, I sure don’t feel confident with that assumption, especially since I just saw her getting out of a cab in present day Aidan’s life. We are left to wonder whether Aidan knows what she is and that she is still, kind of, ‘alive.’ Gods. She might not even be a vampire; with the stuff we’ve seen I wouldn’t be surprised to find out she is something else totally nuts and crazy.
And Josh, that one was so unexpected!
For those of you just joining us at home, Josh has (had) a new Were maker who, this time, is full-blooded (born a Were through Were parents). It is known that with his previous maker, who was not full-blooded, but rather ‘made,’ just like Josh (as in he was not born that way, he was scratched by another Were to become one) could lift the curse, but only by providing his death at the hands of Josh. But who is to say what happens now that Josh’s full-blooded maker has died and at Aidan’s hand instead of Josh’s. Would it have even made a difference had Josh killed his maker himself, or would he still have awoken from the full moon in his wolf form?
And why can’t his wolf just look like the ones from his meditations? You guys don’t want to be compared too much to True Blood?
So here we are, left with a couple really awesome things to suspect while we await the return of series.
There is just no way to say for certain on where Sally is, if Aidan knows about his wife, or why Josh is still in his wolf form.
Maybe Sally will reason with the witch or escape, I certainly do not think the witch will be out of her comfort zone where ever it is that they are going leaving Sally at the disadvantage, but I have faith.
Maybe that isn’t Aidan’s wife at all and it’s…a dead on look alike…? Nope. That’s her. And something cool is going on there. I wanna know.
And maybe Josh is just like, so far into the mindset of the wolf that he just needs to chill out for a bit and he’ll turn back to himself. Maybe now that he has connected with his wolf he will learn to control it and be able to turn on other occasions, outside of the full moon. Hopefully it’s not like the UK version though (UK season four spoiler) when the ‘Josh’ equivalent of the series was able to cause a partial turn but then caused heart, lung, liver, and probably some other stuff, failure.
I can say with certainty, however, that this was my absolute favorite episode of either series as of yet (I still need to finish the UK version) and season four can’t come quick enough.
More questions? Maybe I have answers. Hopefully.
Apparently, according to some stupid article about stupid babies, some people out there with kids hate when people post multiple pictures of their dogs and cats; animals in general. What I want to know is, who are these people? What is wrong with them.
I mean, if you don’t like adorable pictures and videos of puppies trying to get down the stairs I must say, should you even HAVE children?! Who thinks a baby is cute and not a freaking adorable kitten doing neat tricks?
Satanists, that’s who.
So I spent all day writing an article, the server rant one seen below, working so hard on it, almost 4,000 stupid words, and it can’t be found on the search engine.
I am so mad I am one more annoying thing away from throwing a full-blown tantrum.
Wanted to write an email looking for help because I can’t find any reason in the support area on why my article is unable to be searched for when it has been publicly posted.
Especially when it has no dirty content in it whatsoever, but they don’t do emails. Neat.
So. Cool blog site.
Thanks a whole bunch.
