…especially because the Costa Rica Cup team arrived today. Bless their hearts, man, because they gave a good run and went out guns blazing (first time we made it this far on 24 years, and on top of that dealing with a "death row" of Cup-winning veterans), but the traffic was ABSOLUTE HELL. All. Afternoon. Long.
Good thing we were allowed to leave early from work.
In anycase, back to the topic… oh, yeah, Netflix binging. The "Magnificent Seven" TV series (never seen this one before-gotta say, it's pretty good), "Numb3rs", "Knight Rider", "Pink Panther Show", "The Andromeda Strain" (have the book, am a Crichton fan)...
…"Sword Art Online" and "Knights Of Sidonia". Pretty catchy opening songs, pretty interesting stuff. SAO… ok, sure, I can get why it's divisive. Not really care about it either way, although it IS interesting.
"Knights"… ok, just started a Nihei kick for me and got me rechecking my "Eclipse Phase" books because giant robots aside it really looks like a nice little EP campaign setting. The "Gauna" are TITAN creations, certain degree of trans-humanism is common (although going too far is still bad)… sounds like something that could happen on a Gatecrasher colony or barge.
If you wanna see it, it's good. Just beware of two things: 1) It's a CG show (generally well-made, with the cell-shading technique, but if you dislike CG you will NOT come to like it from this) and 2) It's a Nisei work. Can be depressing (in the "can the bad guys GIVE US A FREAKING BREAK!?" kind of way and in the "cast drops like flies" kind of way-oddly enough it's softer (so far) than, say, "Blame!").
Just to remind of the art jam (mentioned on the prev. journal) is still open.
