Sorry about yesterday, folks. Not a depressed guy (ok, kinda sad at times, but not really go for 24/7 sad), but Orion's journal hit... well, probably was the pack that broke the camel's back, sadness-wise.

Let us hope for Orion's life to improve- sooner is good, but better is most important.
Fucking depressed. Don't wanna sound bad, but you know, reading OrionPax09's post kinda hit close to home for a moment. Read my comment over there-don't feel like recapping the thing.

I just wish to say that it's a good chance shit will get worse by late January/early February. I don't have my hopes up on this.

(Please see previous Journal for November and December Challenge Jam rules. I will also apologize if the whole idea sounded too damn crazy-I just felt like... shall we say... experiment with things. I will accept it if it sounded too damn crazy).

In any case.... that thing about "seeing it in IMAX"? Not false advertisement. The damn thing blew... me... away. Took me this long to assimilate it, actually.

I will admit it gets a bit sappy and that it may feel more Spielberg than Nolan, but the brothers wanted to make a sappy movie at least once, so what is the big deal? OK, it sounds freaking odd on a "hard" sci-fi film (which is a genre I have started to come to love pretty much recently-and on that note, I REALLY need to try to get me some "Traveller" RPG stuff), give you that, but what the heck.

Vehicle designs are awesome (really, REALLY love the Rangers), special effects were pretty good (as in "fuck me, how much of this was done with miniatures again?"), the McConnaissance is still going strong (and Mike Caine, as usual, is cool. OK, sure, you can feel like he can pull this kind of role on his sleep by now, but the man has gravitas, you know? Gets there and earns his paycheck, it's what I'm saying, because he could be talking about the Cubs not making the World Series or about how the world is going to go to hell if you don't go out to save it, and he feels like this father (or grandpa, if you love them more) that you do *not* wish to disappoint). Also, John Lithgow (dig the guy a lot, since first seeing him on "Third Rock").

Funny... didn't saw "True Detective" when it was on HBO, and now I'm kicking myself in the rear for not having done so. Is that supposed to be a good thing, or is that bad? And the Mann sub-plot... ok, kinda ok, but technically is there to have Jason Bourne and Rust Cohle get into a fight (and it's not a bad scene, actually).

Is it everybody's cup of joe (or tea)? No, it isn't, actually. Even the ones that dig this stuff may not like the whole even if they like the individual parts. But, you know, if you do like sci-fi films, you should go out and watch it (especially in damn IMAX, doubly so if the film (and that is *film*) version is still available near you). Just... do what I didn't do and try not to glance at the watch while you do it (had pressing concerns with my family elsewhere, and I felt like I was gonna get an earful by the end of it).
...and it's kind of an experiment, here. So it may feel clunky, and I will apologize in advance for this craziness.

So let's start...

NOVEMBER CHALLENGE:
+Challenge deadline: January 15th, 2015, Midnight.
+The entries can be either fan art or fan fiction, up to the contestant's call. Incomplete Entries will be accepted if necessary, but no additional time will be given.
+Because of the story starting in November (although rather late in it), it is optional to add November details (like Thanksgiving) to the story. Once again, it is *optional*.

The challenge has the following subjects:
-DARK SEAS: An underwater threat (villain, disaster, whatever).
-DARK SPACE: A deep-space threat (villain, disaster, whatever).
-DOOMSDAY: A highly-powered threat or threats (monster, villain, disaster, rival, whatever).

The contestants can either make an entry for each subject or mix-and-match as they desire.

As usual, the contestants will be awarded as follows:
-First Prize: Three Art Requests.
-Second Prize: Two Art Requests.
-Third Prize: One Art Request.

As well, we start from now...

DECEMBER CHALLENGE: "SEASON'S SMASHINGS".
+Challenge Deadline: January 15th, 2015, Midnight.
+The entries can be either fan art or fan fiction, up to the contestant's call. Incomplete Entries will be accepted if necessary, but no additional time will be given.
+Entries to this Challenge can either be independent of the November Challenge, or optionally you can add December details to the November Challenge entries and run them as entries for this one.
+The challenge is simple: Create a story or art that occurs during December (possibly covering Christmas and/or New Year's).

As usual, the contestants will be awarded as follows:
-First Prize: Three Art Requests.
-Second Prize: Two Art Requests.
-Third Prize: One Art Request.

On December on The Line... on this era after the coming of the CLULESS Virus, there are a lot of things that can happen. "Warm And Fuzzy Feeling" can happen just as easily as action-packed insanity (and sometimes they can intermingle on one single case). Obtaining and delivering presents can be a chore even for the Big Red One on some locations, and just as many folks believe in the season and live in wide-eyed wonder and preach hope and happiness as there are "Scrooges" and "Grinches" (human and... otherwise) that can go from just harrumphing on one corner of the room to using advanced technology and magic (or other action-adventure-worthy methods) to deliver wide-spread misery (and anything in-between). Christmas Miracles happen often. The cold and the ice and the snow can be allies or menaces.

And there's a lot of red. And green. And fuzz. And glitter. And hot chocolate...

(((())))

As for other news... went and seen "Interstellar" on IMAX today. Was outrageously fucking cool. Superb Spanish dubbing, as well.

While doing the dishes in the kitchen you are suddenly interrupted by a pounding at the door. You dry your hands and the pounding at your door continues but this time much louder. “Ok ok I’m coming geez, cool your jets” you mutter, annoyed by the infernal pounding at your door and the impatient mystery guest. You answer it to find a tall, muscular Caucasian man looking down at you. He was bald with blue eyes and goatee. He wore black tight t-shirt that had a picture of big white skull with black eye sockets and red pupils in the center. Under it, it read ‘Austin 3:16’. “Hey Turd, you fave a piece at Mobis-New-Nest?” he asks as he glares you down with a serious look on his face. You half smile while looking up and reply “Yes I suppose I did”. “But you didn’t comment did you?” the bald man said. “Um I’m sorry but I didn’t” You reply blushing as you feel embarrassed for not doing so. “Congratulations asshole, your day is about to get a hell of a lot worse” said the bald man. “I don’t under…” before you could finish your sentence the bald man grabs your head and holds it with one hand behind your head; the bald man turns his body and takes your head upon his shoulder and drops his body down with such full force the impact stuns your head and you fall back in pain. The bald man gets up and looks down at you on the floor as you cover your head in pain “Thanks for the fave but next time you better comment or I’m gonna come back here and open me another can of whoop-ass and THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE CAUSE STONE COLD SAYS SO!” said the bald man and with that he leaves in pain, clutching your head as the tears stream from eyes as you curse the day you ever faved a piece at Mobis-New-Nest.
