Blog comment carnival: July 2013

It's the first of August!! And that means two things:
1. It's the first day of VEDA, so I'm probably having a nervous breakdown in the corner, because 31 is a lot of videos, it seems like I'm the only participant in the southern hemisphere, and I'm about 15 hours ahead of most other participants, meaning that unless I upload my videos at the last minute every time, mine will go up waaaaaaaaaaaaay before anyone else's. And that's terrifying...
2. It's time to link up with Jessica for the blog comment carnival!!

That's right, it's time to pick out my favourite comments from this month and show you guys the love!!

On Send puppies. And chocolate:
So, this is not *really* relevant to the story, but you mentioned crying once while watching HIMYM.

I can think of seven episodes off the top of my head that have made me ugly cry. And the one where Ted realizes he's all alone? SOBS.

On Marvel movies trump DC movies:
I know I've said I don't want to see MoS, but I kinda do now, just to use it as a drinking game. Drink every time they tell instead of showing. Drink every time someone says or does something unintentionally funny.

Maybe it's just my dislike of DC in general making me a little biased, but I just can't get behind their films. I would pay good money to see a Wonder Woman film, but only if it was helmed by someone who knows how to make a superhero movie that isn't trying to be a Superhero Movie. Other than that, anything DC related... I'll enjoy it while I'm watching it, but about half an hour after I get out of the cinema (so I guess they do their job in that respect) the cons start outweighing the pros, and then I just start to get annoyed. Over all, the reason I'm not a fan of DC is because I just can't connect with the characters.

Also, let's be honest. Clark Kent is flying around in Kryptonian underwear. That's worse than Ms Marvel's old bodysuit getup, and they're comparable power wise. At least Carol has a proper suit now, Clark hasn't graduated to that stage of heroics yet.
The noise! It really was ridiculously loud - I spent at least half of the movie wincing.

I wish they'd spent more money on a decent script but it seems as though any extra money went towards knocking down more buildings. It's as though someone asked: "Should we turn this plot into a seamless sequence of inter-related events that make for a satisfying movie or should we just get special effects to knock down another city block?" and everyone else gave the wrong answer every single time.

Honestly, this Clark Kent seemed like a total, driftless loser. And yes, the whole Jesus/saviour of mankind analogy was slathered on a bit strong there.

Also: Lois Lane running about doing reporter stuff in those heels. Are they serious? They put her in a smart looking pant-suit and then whack on heels and make her run across fields or broken-down cities. It drove me crazy.

On Biscuits and burgers (aka the final installment of my trip to the US in January):
About an hour after you left I realized KFC sells real southern biscuits - the regular, non-cheddar kind and they have a drive-thru.

I guess I don't eat fried chicken enough to have thought about that in time.

On Who wants to go on a roadtrip?:
1. Scarlett is a bitch.
2. The submarine - is that some kind of Sahara like placement? Is there gold? So many questions!
3. Man, I need to do more road trips in Australia.
I, too, love Scarlett and GWTW...but yes: bitch. Lamentably. Faaar too many examples to cite, of course. (Oy.)

On Challenge accepted:
The best thing about Dessert Day is that I get to see two lots of photos of utterly delicious desserts. Too much dessert is never a bad thing.

On A tale of two TV shows:
I didn't watch either of these shows. I had a hard time believing Kristen Bell was a teenager, which is weird because she was only like 22 or 23 at the time and is teeny tiny, but I just didn't buy it. And I never watched Dollhouse (it didn't get a ton of press here, either, and by the time anybody really knew it existed it was cancelled) but HOLY PHOTOSHOP on that second pic. Jeez. They look like wax figurines.
Big Whedon fan, NOT a Dollhouse fan. In fact, I couldn't finish the series either.

I do however, love Veronica Mars. But for some reason haven't finished the series...thanks for the inspiration to finally do that!

On Comfort zones and being outside them:
Good lord, how did that autocaption come up??

I don't think I'll ever be a vlogger, but I love listening to other people's accents. It either reminds me of home, or makes me dream of places I would love to travel to...

On On why I prefer Elementary to Sherlock:
I watched both and definitely prefer Elementary. I love the depth of the relationships and the acting, as you said, is phenomenal. I love that there are enough elements from the book in the series to keep me engaged and that the settings are contemporary enough to do the same. I thought it was a great balance :)

Thanks for all your fabulous comments, as always. Don't forget to link up with Jessica if you write your own post!! Also, if you want to see all my VEDA videos, you can subscribe here.
