But now I'm back...and doing work for the internships I told to leave me alone for the week and catching up on school stuff I've been severely neglecting. I know it's my fault for taking on so much, and hopefully it'll be a good thing in the long run, but right now it feels like I'm doing the bare minimum to get by, and that's no good.
I need like an extra day to get stuff done...oh, wait, it's Leap Year. I do have an extra day. Maybe that means more stuff done, we'll see. There will be more entries, that's for sure (I hope).
At DC we had Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Young Justice, a sneak peak at Green Lantern: The Animated Series plus All-Star Superman, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, and Batman: Year One.
Complete cast list under the cut.

To backtrack, those of you who watch Community may or may not realize that they paid off a three-seasons-long gag involving Beetlejuice. In each season, someone would say his name, and a couple episodes ago, it was the third time someone said it, and Betelgeuse actually appeared in the background!
So I got bored today and watched Beetlejuice. I don't know how this got past me, but I forgot "Jump in the Line" was sung in both The Little Mermaid III and Beetlejuice. Chalk that up to another Batman/Ariel comparison. Maybe I should list what those two have in common...nah, I'm going to talk about Batman and Hercules.
"Hercules? By Neptune!"

Oy, it's not going to be as huge a Thanksgiving our first year...or even last year...but it's happening. It's going to be at my place, so I volunteered to do the turkey. Plus my typical potatoes and corn pudding. Eek!
I did get a pre-cooked turkey...okay, pre-basted...all right, it was only a fresh turkey, but hey, I had to get a small one and they don't come in pre-basted. Or at least, not at Albertson's. I called them first and, basically, I got Jeff Alberston.
"Welcome to Albertson's! We are the Worst. Grocery Store. EVER."
Ah well, I got the bird, but I went to Ralph's for everything else. Hoo-boy. Well, wish me luck tomorrow with the cooking (also my roommate stole our coffee table and disappeared...ugh).
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
You are The Devil
Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession
The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.
Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

My school has Monday night screenings with directors, producers, etc. for various things. This week was Van Partible, creator of Johnny Bravo. He's an LMU alum, and he talked about creating Johnny Bravo and its popularity around the world, including India. He screened Johnny Bravo Goes to Bollywood, a 75 minute movie.
It was pretty funny. Not a laugh-a-minute deal, but there were some great jokes. Afterwards, some of the cast and crew joined Van Partible on stage, including Sheetal Sheth (actress), Brenda Vaccaro (Johnny's mom), and Charlie Adler (casting director). CHARLIE ADLER!
My friend Tom was there too, and he noticed how geeky I was with Charlie Adler there. I couldn't believe it, I've been a fan of the man's work for over TWENTY YEARS!
After the Q & A was over, I wanted to shake his hand. I was nervous, but luckily Tom was there to tell me to just do it. So I did! I told him how awesome he is, even if the only roles I managed to squeak out were "Buster Bunny" and "Dr. Doom". He said "Yeah, they should just put me away." Tom had to point out that we're not as young as he thinks (he made a reference to everyone in the audience looking like we're 9). There were mostly undergrads there, which means I'm about ten years older than most of them. Ah well, it was a great experience!
Actually, I guess I didn't need it that bad since I got birthday money when I picked up my mail on Wednesday. Hooray! Guess that justifies my purchase of birthday loot previously, but I also ordered some more comic books. After that, I'll have everything up to Flashpoint. So what do I do after that in terms of DC? Only time will tell.
Thursday was my actual celebration. It's hard getting a bunch of people together because they're shooting or doing rehearsals or preparing to shoot. So only half the people I invited came, but that was okay (especially since some of the people who didn't come chipped in and got me a nice, tall bottle of Johnny Walker 12 year blended scotch whiskey...yum!).
So I decided I wanted to go to Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles. I love chicken, I love waffles, what better way than to enjoy them both?! And it was quite delicious, let me tell you! I'll have to go there again.
Also, is it just me or do Alice and Belle buy clothes at the same store?
