Darths&Droids REPRISE

I say "Reprise" because I love reprises in musicals. It's when they sing the same song again, but sometimes with a different twist. Phantom of the Opera is the ultimate reprise musical. Most of the songs are sung at least twice. 

Anyways, back when I wrote about this, no one read it.

Oh wait..before I started writing, I was playing the piano. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw I blur of movement. I thought "Oh! It's the mailman!" But something was weird. He was running really fast...he almost slipped on the sidewalk! And he was swinging his bag and yelling. It turns out the neighbor's dog was chasing him. He swung the bag at the dog and yelled, but it wouldn't stop barking and growling. He was swinging our mail at the dog too. By now they were right in front of our door. He pulled out a can of mace and almost maced my neighbor's dog! But then, I think, the dog gave up and ran back to the house.
The dog isn't a mean dog, he just likes barking and chasing people. He's a yellow Lab.
Our mail was wet. :(


Back on track...my favorite webcomic EVER. Start at the beginning: http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0001.html

These guys screencap the movies like a role playing game. There are about 500 episodes right now-they're in the middle of Revenge of the Sith. They update on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. My favorite days of the week, now. If it's confusing, hang in there. My favorite one they've done is Silence of the Clones(Attack of the Clones).


A couple of unrelated samples-click to enlarge:





If you've played RPG's before, you'll catch on quickly.

Episode 343: In Which the Intricacies and Details of Complex Combat Situations are Handled Masterfully
The guy in the box is the Game Master(GM). Jim is Qui Gon and Padme, Ben is Obi Wan, Annie is Anakin, Pete is R2D2 and Sally plays assorted characters.
Episode 440: Fry, You Fools 

It's really fun! Now, whenever I see the movies, I can't help but think of a bunch of guys sitting together in front of a coffee table with dice. What's really funny is that Jim plays a girl and Annie plays a boy, and they fall in love in "real life".

PS. My favorite story arc from Darths and Droids. Jango and Boba, played by the GM are attacking Obi Wan(Ben). Padme(Jim, a physics major), Pete(R2D2) and Padme(Annie) are on Tatooine. Demonstrates some of the best of Darths and Droids.
Episode 293: Nuisance Caller

Episode 294: Just Plane Ridiculous




Episode 295: Everyone's a Whiner, Babyx

Episode 296: Mono a Monoculture

Episode 297: You Say Topology, I Say Topography

Episode 298: Smoke Gets in Your Ions

Go read the rest yourself.

  1. I've read some of those in the past before. I never got too far into it though because there were so many to read. =P They are funny though.

  3. Thanks for the kind words! We enjoy making them, and we also enjoy browsing the internet to see what people say about them :-)

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
