C7P44

December 21, 2008

EDITNESS: Could still use some people to fill out this 5-minute survey for me. It's for the ad networks, and helps me make a wee bit more money. I need 121 more people to take it. Thank you to the 70 or so who already have! You guys are the bestest!

Yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah. When is something going to HAPPEN?

...

This part of the story is supposed to be incredibly obvious. I find not the actions people take to be interesting, but instead the motives BEHIND those actions. Why is the antagonist bad? Why is the protagonist good? In different circumstances would the tables be turned? This is what interests me. The rest of the stuff is just...history.

As usual per my pages, please pay attention to the small details on this page. There are 3, 1 per panel. Who can name them? :3

I DVR'd a couple movies on HBO this past week. There was this one movie that's really stayed with me since watching it. I can't really get it out of my head. It's called Sunshine. The basic plot is that the sun starts to "go out" and a ship is sent to "restart" it with a nuclear payload. Of course, it was the second of such missions, because Earth had lost contact with the first (the whole thing reminded me very much of Event Horizon, without the "hell" aspect.) But that wasn't even what the movie was really "about," you know? There was this whole other layer about dying, the means of dying, and the most...beautiful...way to die. About dreams and friendships and doing what is necessary. For a sci-fi movie, it was the most artistic and poetic movie I've seen in a very long time. I highly recommend it.

It had the best supporting cast of any movie I've ever seen too. Supporting casts often make or break the movie. I have no recollection of Sunshine coming out in theaters though. Did it?

Anyways, come back Christmas Eve for my Secret Santa gift from Apple of Discord, and then again Christmas day for the next Not Alone page, and a funny extra staring Ravar and Talon. Beneath mistletoe.
