      I've been catching up with RvB, now at the beginning of Season 10. But I'm having issues in retrospect with the past couple of seasons and the reveal of Tex as an AI.
      I had been thinking it was pretty awesome that the strongest, smartest, most capable character was female. That's what made it funny, because she has to deal with these idiots all the time.

      And now with these amazing action sequences she's even badder assed. bad asser. badassier? something.

      Of course the story is so convoluted by this time that it's a little hard to unravel. Apparently Church is a fragment of an AI of this guy who was the director of the freelancer project...who loved some girl who died and made his memory of her into Tex?

      Come ON.
      This basically removes all the agency she's ever had. Now she's only badass because he imagined her so. She's an idealized version of woman instead of being her own person. What a disappointing move by the writers. How can she be independent if her whole existence is dependent on one dude's interpretation of her entire actual existence?
      I just wish they thought that through.
      Maybe I shouldn't think so hard about it. But they got more serious, so I'm taking it a more seriously.

      Got Mass Effect 3 in the mail, today. I'm playing the shit out of this trilogy.
      Although I still haven't gone through as the male version. I don't know if I care to, except for some of the romance options. I've heard the voice actor is not nearly as good as FemShep's (Jennifer Hale).
      I'm going to linger in ME2 at least through this current playthrough, (Sentinel, not bad, but I miss the Charge of Vanguard). And then a playthrough with my Renegade character....

      Completed ME2 ... I had to buy the Cerberus DLC which was soooooo not worth the money, but I had to KNOW !
      I'm stupid. I heartily disliked Zaeed, and totally didn't get his loyalty and kinda don't care. He's an asshole.

      Maybe if I go through again in my other character which is Ruthless, I could get with it. But I don't even like her.... She's such a bitch all the time. That's what I think of the whole Renegade options. I usually only choose them out of bitterness, or cynicism/realism, for Celeste. I mean, sometimes it's the more fun option...

      Anyway that's what I'm doing. I wish I was doing that right now.

      OK so I'm totally into Mass Effect right now (I know, so late) and I'm in ME2 and I just want to explore all aspects, right? But I kinda think my heart kinda lies with Kaiden, even though he was such a bitch when we met on Horizon. WTF, mate?

      man. I've always loved Tex's song.
      Cool.
      Yeah, haven't been around here in a while.
      Getting ready for Burning Man.
      That's about it.

    • ME! Coming soon to The Big Island near..

      obsidity

      you?
      Well really...near all those other smaller islands.

      I'm going to Hawaii tomorrow evening.
      For 3 weeks.
      I never thought I'd even get there much less stay for that long. I'm so broke and I have no idea how I'll pay June rent when I get back , but you know, if you're getting to go to a place like Hawaii might as well stay as long as possible.
      I've had my weather widget on my friend's zip code so I can get a sense of the goodness that is imminent, and so I don't end up packing a bunch of corduroy jeans and fleece and chenille which is what I've _been_ wearing.
      My time sense is all off, I fell asleep after work and woke up at midnight....That's not even on hawaiian time...that's like Russia or something.
      anyway.
      woohoo!

      I'm at that point in time where I've run out of room cleaning steam.
      If I leave it like this it's just going to get chaotic really fast.
      But I'm never really done, because there always stuff I haven't dealt with.
      Must finish task at hand. But want to just lie around an be entertained.

      Im posting on everyones profile who has "The Corporation" on their list of favorite movies. Its one of the better explanations of why the average corporation is overall detrimental. Message me if you have any reccomendations on movies/books or you wanna talk about globalization/corporations, or anything.

      wait wait wait...you mean about me being a girl? Or all the images of Church I have...? I guess I meant it both ways....you know, Sarge and the 10 megaton bomb.....I was just riffing off of that. I don't like to have "female" in there bcse I think that's searchable, and I want to elude the chicksniffers....without completely changing my identity. I do have a big ol' crush on Church though....

      I don't want to give anything away, but let's just suppose that I have big ol' crush on Church....
      Oh..I guess I kinda gave it away...

      If that didn't... you know your images do, right? (if you're talking about the blank next to "from"... if not it's b/c I'm a guy and as a friend put it "I'm just not allowed to understand girls")
