Sexy Sheppard :.

August 22, 2007

Everyone just pause, and look. *sigh*

John Sheppard

Lt. Col. John Sheppard comes in second of my list of Sci-Fi hotties.. The first of course, being Dr. Daniel Jackson (yummy Michael Shanks!), but since his series is now defunct, I only have Atlantis to keep me warm at night. And boy, does it ever!

Yes, I fancy Joe Flanigan, even if his little stint on ‘Dawson’s Creek’ did seriously creep me out. I didn’t think I was going to like Atlantis because of my love for SG-1, but I find the show seriously refreshing and entertaining. And the fact that Joe Flanigan and Paul McGillion are so easy on the eyes does help.. (Not to mention Beckett’s delicious Scottish accent, it’s enough to make a girl’s legs go weak..)

I’m just starting to watch Season 2 of Atlantis after finishing Season 9 of SG-1. I’m really, really trying to hold off viewing Season 10 for as long as possible. I’ve already read the episode summaries on GateWorld.net, so it’s not like I don’t know what’s going on.. (Yeah, it’s weird, I actually like plot spoilers before I watch something.. I think it’s cos I’m a Global thinker..) , but I can’t bear to watch it because I know it’s the end. And I have only more Atlantis to look forward to.. well, and waiting for the DVD movies to come out..

In the meanwhile, I’m really liking Atlantis, so much so, I did the geek thing and ordered a couple of the Atlantis Decals for my laptop.. so it looks all cool, just like the laptops in Atlantis… Yup, I think I’m ready for the Atlantis Expedition.. Daedalus, take me away!

Triple 07 :.

July 7, 2007

My sister got the call that we made the list for the NBT Treasure Hunt late yesterday morning.. I’m excited.. and a little relieved.. A little adventure this weekend will keep my mind off the trouble in paradise..

I finally got to see the ‘Star Wars’ episode of ‘Robot Chicken’ last night… hehe.. some new stuff, some old stuff I’d seen before.. but funny.. I was amazed at the number of guest stars they had.. among the list : George Lucas, James Van Der Beek and Breckin Meyer.. Very cool.. Click here to check it out.

4 more days before the Harry Pothead.. er, Potter comes out! *squee!* I don’t care, I like reading Harry Potter.. I will be one of the first few to raid Best Eastern when the new book comes out 10 days after the movie.. WHO DIES???? I hope it’s not gonna be a Buffy ending though.. Harry dies, and gets resurrected by magic.. But whatever it is.. please let it be the thickest book EVAR! I read the last volume in less than 12 hours.. I was obsessed.. I couldn’t sleep until I finished it.. I really get annoyed at myself when that happens.. Eyes say sleep, brain says.. NOT YET!

Disappointed that Nathan Fillion’s series ‘Drive’ has been canceled, and the last two episodes were dropped from the viewing schedule in the US.. (Wtf is wrong with Fox? They’re stewpid.. dropping Firefly, and then Drive? Stewpider than Sci-Fi.. Ranking top in the list of all time stewpid networks..!) It had a really great premise, and I’m interested to see how Fillion portrays retired, racing driver with a secret.. woo.. It has to be as good as ‘Captain Tight-Pants.’ Yum! And I’d watch him in anything really just to hear him speak in that accent of his.. DIRTY! Well, I’ll just have to wait ’til they release it on DVD to see.. In the meantime I can catch him on the big screen in ‘Waitress.’

Okay, is it me, or is Shia LeBeouf strangely hot these days? Yeah, I know his stock has gone up since Transformers, but I actually liked him in ‘Constantine.’ If you didn’t know, he was the annoying brother in ‘Evens Stevens’ on Nickelodeon.. and he was amazingly annoying.. but brilliant.. He’s really grown into his ‘man-face,’ while some of us are still trying to not look like we’re in our second adolescence. Him and Hayden Christensen are lucky.. they got hot in their 20’s. Anyway, can’t wait to see him in ‘Disturbia’.. Guy sure knows how to pick his roles, a good mix of character AND mainstream.. means appeals to many markets. He is sure gonna be Hollywood Hot Stuff.. hope he does stray in the way of the Lohan…

Apparently, shopping on eBay is cooler since it’s in the movies, Transformers in perticular. I’ve known that for ages.. I eBay, a lot. And I have faith in the Brunei postal system.. a little on the slow side.. but I’ve received everything I’ve ever ordered online.. and the customs people are nice too.. They’ve seen so much of me the last few months, they know me by name.. Last thing I bought on eBay : A pair of Paris Blues embroidered jeans, and a pair of Levi’s Rock Star dark denim wash jeans. Total price plus shipping : B$98. Total price in U.S stores : US$94. Getting current, cool, original clothing in your size, without paying the price of a plane ticket to the U.S : priceless. Can you see the bargain here? Can ya?

I’ve been Star-confused lately.. I’ve been missing my Stargate.. (I miss all my DVDs, a friend of mine borrowed my Seasons 1 -8, and he hasn’t been able to give it back yet..) so I’ve been reading a lot of Stargate Fanfics (mostly slash and of course, shippers!) and the Kirk Vs Picard Fan written stuff.. It is so good.. Makes me wanna go to Joey’s and pick up a few seasons of The Next Generation. The best part : Wil Wheaton, celebrity blogger and Geek extraordinaire, (I don’t have to mention his other title.. you already know what that is..) acts out a few scenes.. *sigh* I love Wil.. Not only is he my geek leader and the blogger I aspire to be.. but I totally had a crush on Wesley.. when he wasn’t being annoying.. Oh, come on.. I am geek and proud, and don’t care.

Our only female cat gave birth a couple of days ago, to six, SIX! cute kittens. Everybody say AAAwwwww! I am so proud of Cici.. I hope these ones survive.. The previous ones didn’t.. I have new fuzzy friends… YAYE!

Right.. that’s everything I have to say for now.. Lay-ters..

San Diego, I hate you!

Man, this is like.. the 3rd time today I’ve been really disappointed..

First of all, I was the last to know about one of my special peoples coming back home. And that person has met with everyone but me. I no feel speshul no more.

2ndly, I found this heinously cool shirt on eBay, ‘It’s Not The Jedi Way,’ and the seller don’t ship overseas. I cried, begged and cajoled. To no avail… *sigh*

And the third and the biggest one would be the above thingy…

Oh for bleedin’ %$#&!!! sakes…

Powers that be, it ain’t that I’m ungrateful for all y’all blessings and stuff.. but y’know.. I’m just waiting for the shitstorm of the last 7 years to pass over, and it looks like there ain’t no end in sight..  I’m just wondering.. if y’know.. you could send a few of those clear sky days my way.. I’d be mighty grateful, and some of us that have been suffering more than most would like to see the light at the end of the tunnel, cos there sure ain’t been one for so long..

Meanwhile, on Planet Earth, where people are informed thanks to the wonderful world of teh intarwebs.. The breaking story is that George Lucas has given his blessing to an all Star Wars Robot Chicken episode.. Sweet!

Mr. Lucas is known for setting his legal rottweilers on any unsanctioned Star Wars parodies.. protecting his beloved cash cow at all costs.. But unbelievably.. a clip from the famed satrical series reached Lucas’ inbox.. and the rest is history..

Here’s the article about the Star Wars Robot Chicken episode.

And below is the famed clip which caught Lucas’ attention..

I know y’all will be sitting on your hands until June 17th.. just like me..

Sweet surprises are made of these.. :.

May 30, 2007

 Who doesn’t like surprises in the mail? I ask you, who?

As I was at the post office this morning, opening the parcel for the customs lady, I was wondering what it was because I hadn’t ordered anything on the Internet recently.. and certainly not books, as was listed on the parcel label.. I nearly fainted when I opened up to find..

Sanctuary is out! :.

May 25, 2007

The first episode of Amanda Tapping’s new made for web sci-fi series ‘Sanctuary‘ is out.. Creepy and interesting, but doesn’t give much away.. and definitely too short for my liking..

You can watch the low-res version of the first episode below.. and purchase HD versions of the episodes for US$2.49 a pop. The also have lo-res for $1.99 each..

For 17-19 mins of entertainment, it seems rather pricey, but when you check out the backgrounds and stuff.. it’s like whoaa.. Very cool.. Most of the scenes are filmed in green screen, so the environments you see are CG..
