kjata: star wars (he took his vorpal sword in hand)
Mass Effect 2 is at 50% downloaded! And after only 10 days! As much as I detest how clumsy Origin is as a client, I will acknowledge that when they brag about "optimized downloads" they are actually not lying. Who knew!

At this rate I might be able to play before the end of the month, which would be fantastic. GARRUS VAKARIAN, I'M COMING AFTER YOU.

Actually, my Paragade fem!Shep save will probably stick with Kaidan because I'm curious about how much more horrible the romance dialogue can get between those two. But when I replay as a Renegade fem!Shep, then Garrus better watch out. Oh yeah.



Money came in, so I got a paid account for a year. My LJ hasn't been paid in years and years so only fifteen of my icons ported, whoops. Been uploading and culling off and on all day. One of the two reasons I hadn't left LJ before now was because of my icons, so I'm happy to have that part mostly resolved.

(The other reason is having to abandon the hellboy name. DAMNIT, STILL BITTER.)



New Star Wars trailer is out. Meh. I saw some leaked spoiler info that may or may not be true re: one of the villains; comparing the said theory to the trailer footage, I'm guessing the leak was genuine. So my fandom participating will probably only last until Christmas, unless I decide to invest in fix-it.

If Finn is asleep for even half of that film (or more) I will be SO FUCKING ANGRY. John Boyega deserves better than that. All you have to do is point at Attack The Block and you can see that he deserves better than that.

Also could've used some Leia other than just a quick shot of her back with some voice over that I actually didn't hear clearly. All those whispering ~~~~voices~~~~ don't really do it for me, but that just might be a matter of taste. Will of course wait for the movie to come out before I get critical.

Just not hyped, that's all. Maybe the next teaser will do better for me.
kjata: dead like me (god talks to you frequently?)
Still trying to find everyone from LJ; keep being derailed by usernames I recognise from fandoms of my past and seeing if I want to subscribe to their current fic/blog entries. Lotttttts of people are probably wondering who the fuck this rando is, sorry everyone! If it helps any, I don't expect you to follow back, I just want to lurk on your public posts!

After The Great Migration dies down a bit I'll start the process to transfer my entries over here so I don't look like quite the freak. It'll all be set to private, of course, because I made that LJ in 2004 and no one needs to see proof of my great teenage depression. The fact that I still have a handful of friends from that time period is absolutely astonishing to me.



Took the codeine last night and it was such. a. bad. idea! On one hand I discovered that the ubiquitous back pain I got the last time I regularly took codeine wasn't actually from my back being out-- on the other hand, that horrible horrible back pain was from a pill I willingly ingested, holy fuck.

In the future I will stick to the generic excedrin and whimpering in the corner method, because at least that way I know wtf is going on with my body.



Playing Fallout Shelter today and ran through a quest to rescue a kidnapped dog. Get to the dialogue with the Raiders, they demand their Caps and Snacks and Weapons, and I get an option to make a snappy retort. Clearly thinking that this was going to lead to a fight, I chose the option, "We come with the gift of knowledge: you give us the dog and we'll teach you how to write."

Whelp, their answer to that was "Oh cool, we'll be able to write better ransom notes!" and paid out the dog to me. So now I've got to live with the fact that, yes, I rescued a pooch from Raiders, but I also apparently held a Learning Annex course for them so they could learn how to properly express ideas in a narrative, and also how to extort people for money :/
kjata: (in broken mathematics)
I need to stop leaving Futurama on in the background as I do things-- today I forgot how to properly pronounce the word "robot" thanks to Zoidberg fucking mangling it 100x per episode.



Some nit on reddit found the thread in the Mad Max sub where I had argued with a redpill about Mel Gibson's so-called redemption. The aforementioned redpill deleted all of his comments, but I left mine up, so this moron decides to use the exact same rhetoric as the redpill to put me in my ~place. I was much more dismissive towards this one than the former, mainly because I already said my piece, he could just freaking use some reading comprehension to see how the argument would go rather than saying anything.

ngl, reddit is such a cesspool I have to stay away for weeks at a time. So. Many. Entitled. Males. Uuuuugh. All the pun threads and science article discussion in the WORLD still isn't worth having to deal with those asses.



Mass Effect 2 is at 27%. I used my phone's data to download articy:draft 2 but I won't launch that one until after my May the 4th fic is done so I don't get sidetracked by the shiny. Thinking of using my phone data to also download the first Fallout because it's only ~600mb and I have like 4gb left yet still. But then again, I'm about two thirds through Avernum: Escape from the Pit and I have Arcanum going too, so might wait for next month's data on that one. Bleh.



Been in a haze of pain all day where my head is concerned, so I'm waiting for midnight to roll around, then I'm taking a full dose of codeine. Excedrin all day hasn't touched the shooting pains so it's time to level the fuck up, man.

Oh wait I haven't tried a cig yet-- sometimes those help. I'll get right on that, since I honestly have no idea when my last excedrin dose was and am being generous in my estimation of when it wears off only so my liver lasts a wee bit longer. A cig might take the edge off so I don't die in the next... three hours, oh my cthulhu why. Whyyyyyyyyy.
kjata: tales from the borderlands (i've abused my position)
Think I got everyone who is active on DW moved here from LJ. Hallo, hallo, I was hellboy back in the home place but some rotten dirty namesitter got that one back when DW was new apparently so I'm stuck with my original account name-- which, by and by, is a handle I used when I was fifteen and still posting to ff.net. Oh my god. The void has been mentioned, it will now rise up and come for me.

Was thinking of doing some thoughtful, well-articulated post about how I've changed since I last blogged on the regular to commemorate the move, but eh. No one cares, myself least of all.


Spent from Feb 11th to April 4th downloading Bioshock Remastered and oh my god that game is terrifying. It shouldn't be, but the atmosphere and "set design" (so to speak) is very similar to nightmares I flee for my life in on the regular. Went so far as to check up on how the first level goes in a walkthrough so I know what to expect, and I'm still having trouble playing more than ten minutes at a time.

Needless to say, am quite frustrated with myself.

Currently downloading Mass Effect 2, but since I already finished the first one there deffo won't be trouble playing the second. Ha. Time to finally romance Garrus, oh yes.


On fifth attempt to find my focus on CampNaNo project. Brain fatigue is horrible to work through, mainly because it doesn't matter how much I stare at the document, no words come to mind to write. So back I go to Fallout Shelter or whatever, metaphorical tail between my legs, feeling like a failure.

But hey, at least I'm halfway through my May the 4th fic. That one isn't having any issue being written, probably because it's got its own worldbuilding and a relatively close deadline attached.


This new phone keeps whistling at me to get my attention. Gonna file charges for sexual harassment, I am not joking here.
