Burn The World

(no subject)

Seems that Paris Hilton and her folks are already starting to work on who will get her "exclusive" post-jail interview. So far, it's a complete bust. They told ABC that NBC had offered more money, but that got shot down when NBC publicly announced that this was false. So, they started the phone tree and tried to get ABC back online, which led to Barbara Walters, the Queen of Celebrity Personal Interviews...to reject it all.


Will this useless bitch (and her parents) ever figure out that we're all tired of her antics, that she's got nothing for us? So she did a little time, ooh, a whole 23 days (give or take) in her own private cell, for being an obnoxious moron. She has no 'life story', she has no insight, she's a spoiled little bitch who needs to go away.

Hmm. So, I wake up, everything's fine. Brush teeth, grab my clothes, head downstairs...and my knee starts a-yowling. Dunno why, hurts like a sonuvabitch. This is not good, as I'm supposed to go ride this morning. Sit here for a bit, get up to go to the bathroom, still hurts. Now, not hurting anymore. ?!? I shouldn't complain, but it makes me wonder. *Led Zeppelin moment*

Awful tired this morning. Probably because I didn't truly get to sleep until 2:30 this morning.

Watched the first half of Ultraviolet yesterday. Second half of the series will be today. Damn, it's good.

Beauty In Darkness

Just finished watching the rest of Ultraviolet (no, not the crappy recent flick starring Milla Jovovich's nice ass), and it is, without a doubt, one of the best things to have ever graced a TV screen.

I can't rave about it enough. It was smooth, very well plotted, a nicely twisting story, and never fell into the "big effects, big action" trap. Where an American series would have tried to keep you riveted with it's huge car chases, gun battles, and explosions, this chose to involve you in a plot that kept your mind working until the final scene. What effects did exist were sparse, making each one worth seeing, and never for flash but within the story's framework. Conspiracy, betrayal, confusion, drama, action, suspense...wow. As a final, game-winning stroke, this is a story involving vampires, and yet, they rarely show up on screen, and when they do, there's no fangs, no grey flesh, no turning-into-animals, no turning-into-smoke, no supernatural whatsis. Other than their rather explosive form of death and one really cool moment at the end, they're nearly indistinguishable from human.

It was amazing, it was stylish, it was deep...which means it's no wonder Mr. and Mrs. America will never appreciate it. Too bad, really. I highly, highly recommend it to those who want and expect more from their entertainment.
