I don’t care if he’s a different species, I love him!

I finally watched Guardians of the Galaxy and it is freakin’ awesome. I did plan to watch it in the cinema but, look, that just never happens. It means sticking to a schedule and those aren’t easy when you’re inside and busy staring at a wall. But, I’m glad I finally watched the film. I’ve read some of the comics and I’m ashamed to say I have the Rocket Raccoon and Groot Complete Collection and I’m still to do more than flick through it, but I will, because I’m in love. I’m just not sure who with yet, I mean Rocket is all badass but then Groot is just a sweetheart.

The film was great. I liked the music and the way the tape recorder was used, I liked the songs. I was a bit unsure about the end when they all held hands, but it worked. Drax was hilarious and I laughed out loud when he said that a metaphor would not fly over his head because his reflexes are too fast. Gamora was fantastic but why is it that every main female in a superhero film has to do that head flick thing? You know the one, fall to the floor, land in a sexy pose, flick back hair and stare straight ahead. Scarlett Johansson has pretty much perfected it.

Rocket and Groot kind of made it for me though. They work so well together and it made everything that happen to them count. Also, I think Groot dancing in the plant pot at the end is possibly the most adorable thing I have ever seen, even more so than the cats of the internet. Sorry cats of the internet.

There was something else that Guardians made me think of though, and that was Destiny. Nothing major, but when the film starts we see a planet that has water shoots. I couldn’t help but think how awesome it would be if in Destiny you didn’t only find your character fighting against enemies, but if natural disasters occurred on the planets and you had to survive them, or just traverse around them. I don’t know, I just love when an event starts and the sky goes black, imagine if that was the coming of a storm? Or like in Sim City when you’d suddenly have sirens and panic and Godzilla walking across your map. Bah, I’m rambling, I just thought it could be cool.

I finally finished co-writing day three of a visual novel I’m working on. It took me a long, long time to get round to it and I absolutely hate using any excuse for not getting work done so instead I just look like a slacker. But, it’s done. I’ve also started thinking about writing a horror for teens but I don’t know if I’m capable of it. I think I need to read some and see how the pros handle atmosphere. I’m not too interested in gore, I like spooks and stuff. And finally (on this boring topic) I desperately need to send my fantasy novel off to more agents because there is nothing I like more than rejections, but no, seriously, what the hell am I playing at?

Right, this is a long entry about a film and a fictional romance with a raccoon. Does that fanfiction exist? Yo, Drax?

Why am I even asking, of course it does!

I ain’t got much to say

but it’s about time I said something anyway.

I start these a lot. Blogs, I mean. I start them and have fun with them for a little while and then forget about them. I think it’s fair to say that if blogs had a mother I’d be the girl that she warned them about. I guess though, the main reason I don’t keep a blog going is that I don’t have a topic. A lot of blogs that are updated often and engage people, they have a topic, or at least some common ground to share, you know? Well, I don’t know jack about beauty, I suck at games, and my life is definitely in the category of ordinary. I do (or did, until I got bored) write a blog about horror stuff. But I guess I got tired of that too since I don’t do much with it anymore. I change themes around and that’s about it. I like themes.

So, I don’t quite know what I’m going to do with this blog yet. I might use it to try and kick the terrible habit I’m in of writing backwards. Other than that, I’ll just write about life. Yeah, just life. That’s something we all have in common. Unless you’re reading this from beyond the grave in which case it’s pretty cool to see that technology has carried over.

Let’s start with today.

I’ve been playing quite a bit of Destiny and I’m still struggling to understand how I can be so bad at the multiplayer when I managed to get at least a few hits in on CoD games. I kind of want to blame the annoying, monotonous sounding announcer but that’s really unfair.

Screw it, it’s his fault!

I wish I knew the appeal of the game, other than it being so shiny. Don’t get me wrong, what I’m saying is I like it a whole lot, I’m just not sure why. It’s an old argument now that the story is lacking, but the multiplayer is just a multiplayer, I only really enjoy being on Earth and Venus (open the Reef, damnit!) and it still doesn’t feel that social. That having been said, my football and bouncy ball balance skills are now freakin’ awesome.

Fuck, what else. I know. Here, share my first experience of logging on Destiny. This is the first message that I received:

Anyway, I’m going to pretend that I need to go do something really important now. In reality I’ll probably be on YouTube trapped in the endless loop of Buzzfeed videos. The “Coincidence” ones are great though. I mean, the Titanic tragedy was supposedly pretty much predicted 14 years earlier by author Morgan Robertson. Here, if you’ve got time and don’t mind losing the rest of your day to “Just one more” syndrome, check it out.
