No, I didn't forget about live journal now that I'm back at Toon zone!
-Financial situation improved over the last 2 months. still in debt, but not hopelessly so.
-In light of the prior fact, I've launched a full campaign to be free of Walmart. no success just yet, but the effort continues. Hoping to get another job lined up to avoid resorting to the "leap of faith." (that is, quitting a current job with no prospects of other jobs.) The big risk of the leap of faith is running out of money before you get the new job, or, actually, before you get the first pay check of the new job. Still, the leap of faith does have two big advantages: it gives you the free time and the proper motivation to find employment. So we'll see.
- Had some extra money lying around today. And I'll admit, my instincts for extra money go a little something like this:
10Get Taco Bell
20Get New DVD
30Get New Transformer
Got the taco bell. Regretted it, as I do a full half the time. as for the DVD and the Transformer, well, I got transformer. At target, they had a clearance, and I found $20 Transformer onsale for $5. I sorta already had him, (in a different color scheme,) but my inner shopper said "75% off you fool! Buy it!" so I did. But, not really having anything to do with it, I'm keeping him MISB for now. Not that I really expect a return on the investment, but then again it ain't out of the question...
As for the DVD, I did refrain. Looney toons Gold Collectin 1 was tempting, because I've had a hankering to see some of the old Daffy Duck/Porky Pig cartoons lately. But whenever I think about getting one of those gold collections, my brain chokes on the $50 price tag. It counter offers to get a spotlight collection, but then I go, "but that's not near as good as a gold collection AND would be redundant to it's matching Gold collection, there for making it that much harder to justify getting the gold collections down the line!" So, naturally, my brain starts getting a little smart ass with me. It goes, "okay, how about this: why don't you go home and gift wrap one of the many DVDs you already own, then open it and pretend it's a new DVD. how about that?" I go "F U" but admit he does have a point. so, I go home, and, skipping the gift wrap phase, watch most of Justice League season 2 today. I had started watching through justice league a couple of weeks ago. And it was good.
I nearly annually watch BTAS straight through, then move onto STAS with the intention of watching it all, then crap out either half way through stas or the fourth set of BTAS. so I hadn't watched Justice League in a while. After wards, if I have the momentum, I'll move onto Batman Beyond and give the ol' "watch DCAU chronologically" theory a chance. Even though I know it's inappropriate and anti climatic.
Also, soon I'd like to review New Frontier and Gotham Nights for Toonzone forums. New Frontier is cool, Gotham Nights a major disappointment. I guess those are my micro reviews. I'm still intending to joke with myself about nudity possibilities in the Wonderwoman uncut DVD, (because I'm such a nudity fiend, but, let's not get into that.) I was also thinking about reviewing Freakazoid Season 1 for Toon Zone news, but Maxie Zeus beat me to it. But let me just say that Freakazoid is not as unapproachable as he makes it seem, but I do think you have to have been there and watched the WB silver age as it was airing to fully appreciate it. (especially that joke where they threaten to stop the episode cold to put on some more Animaniacs reruns, and for one uncomfortably long moment it seems they are going to make good on it.)
