Having technical difficulties, but my laptop is still under warranty, so it should be okay somewhat shortly. Uh, I might try to post here while I'm using my PC, but it doesn't save drafts automatically for some reason.

Anyway, if I disappear from your range of sight for awhile (notably on Skype), that's what's up!

Also, in case you ever doubted it, UPS is dumb and frustrating and af;lkgjt don't try to use it from in Canada. The end. :|

I've had a chest cold for a few days, so at the recommendation of a friend, I took Buckley’s to try to blast all the gross gunk out of my system.

I knew it “tasted awful”, but no one warned me that it tasted like freaking Pinesol.

I have now warned the masses.

Because if you try to Google it, I guarantee autocomplete will give you the wrong "Legend of". :9

Anyway, because the internet is always managing to get its claws on things before it's supposed to, episode one of The Legend of Korra (the sequel show to Avatar: The Last Airbender) has already squiggled its way into our reach. The show doesn't officially begin airing until the middle of April. Whoops.

No spoilers, though, I promise!

I will be the first to admit I was half terrified to watch it. Especially having just rewatched the first show, I was feeling pretty endeared to it and am still holding it in high regard. (It's really, really good and the whole thing is on Netflix. Watch ittttt.)

I was really scared that LoK would be held to too high a standard and fall short, but I was pleasantly surprised. I'd been mislead into believing that Korra was going to be a SRS BZNS kind of... tough bitchy girl who's all like, "Whatever". And that she'd turn out to have a TERRIBLE SCARRED PAST BOOHOO or something. I was wrong in all ways. I liked Korra immediately. (Also, she has normal, living parents who weren't murdered or anything!)

She's very different from Aang in a lot of ways, obviously, but she seems like a nice, balanced character, and she also seems interested in doing good.

I can also see why they chose the new setting--it's neat, and it offers lots of opportunities for different things to happen, so that the new show isn't doomed to simply be a repeat of the first. However, I feel like the setting leapt forward too much. It's less than 100 years since the end of The Last Airbender, after all, and I feel like the dramatic change is sort of... jarring.

Like, I know it's just a pretend world, but it's a very well-written one, and that much of a jump in under a hundred years doesn't seem very feasible to me. That's not to say it's not good or anything, though. I've seen one episode of the proposed two seasons, so the show has a lot of time to balance itself.

I just thought I'd give you guys sort of a heads-up, I guess? I am hoping I'll be proven wrong about the setting, since I'm really on the fence about it.


Okay! \o/

Hey, guys! So far I haven't had any problems figuring out who was who out of those who have added me from LJ, haha. I added you all back! :>

Uh, still figuring this site out. I need to know, though--how do you do the journal links on DW? (Equivalent to the kind that uses the "lj user=" HTML over on LJ.)

Thanks in advance!
