STUPID YOUTUBE!


they keep removing videos i like! ones i've saved to my favorites list! *growls in anger* they're cracking down on people who use video & music without permission. hell, that's like 60% or more of the vids! no one is making money from these things. i can understand if someone posted a movie or a tv show, but these little vids aren't cutting into the profits for these companies. the people has to buy the DVDs & CDs to get the stuff from in the first place! (most of the time i suppose) if they keep this up, youtube (& places like it) will just be a bunch of home videos of people doing stupid stuff & a few authorized clips from the tv & movie people.

a reason to watch


michael shanks (daniel jackson from stargate sg-1) is going to be on 24.
it's confirmed & all of that.
according to my sources (i.e. people at the sg-1 board at scifi.com) his character's name is michael bishop & he'll be some kind of aide or advisor to the president. this means he'll be in a suit. so that will make the fangirls (& some fanboys) happy. *points to the lj recommendation in favorite links*
the first of his four episode arc will start on april 16. i'll have no idea what's going on, but i think i'll watch it anyway.

p.s. i have this awful feeling he's going to turn out to be a bad guy

EDIT: i added a picture, in case you don't know what he looks like

star trek

it's occurred to me that i've done posts about stargate sg-1, but nothing on my first sci-fi love; star trek.
series that i was watching in i often say i've been a fan since birth, but it's probably more like since i was 6. (get this; the last TOS episode ran on june 3, 1969 & june 3 is my b-day) it was the original reruns that got me hooked. then none of my local tv stations were running it. after a while it was announced that a new series would start up. most fans were against it, but my brother & myself were looking forward to it. it didn't not disappoint. neither did deep space nine, voyager or even enterprise. although i agree that "they" should've waited to put out ENT & maybe got some new producers for it. i hear there's a new animated series coming out that takes place after the federation had dissolved & they're trying to start over or something. WTF?! *sigh* maybe i'll just stick to the novels.

blog changes

i've changed the blog "template" & colors twice in the last couple of days.
the first was my idea because one of the result pictures for a quiz i took got cut off on the side. i changed it, fixed the colors & fonts and was more or less happy with it. then i showed it to my brother, who said "it looks like a fake website" which lead to change #2.
it's what you're looking at now.
i played around with the fonts & colors and i'm more or less happy with it. hopefully these will be the last changes for a while.

lj recommendation


lj stands for live journal, which is sort of an advanced blog. and there's a very brilliant essay (IMHO) of sorts about the fashion of america's second favorite archaeologist; daniel jackson (the first being indiana jones)
everybody's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man
it's a must read for any stargate sg-1 fan. (again IMHO)
much thanks to cindyz at the scifi.com forums for posting this link over there on the daniel jackson fashion show thread [if you comment on the entry over there, tell them that archersangel sent you]

english (the language)


english is an odd language.
"i before e, except after c" doesn't always apply. the same with the vowels a, e, i, o & u; right? WRONG! now it's sometimes y & even w (for some reason)
and there's "silent Es" as in cube & tube. and other letters that you don't pronounce, but are there anyway. like the p in pneumonia, well i've never pronounced it anyway. and the o in opossum, but supposedly you're supposed to.
and then there's the matter of spelling. in what i call "england english" they spell color c-o-l-o-u-r & as far as i can tell, it's pronounced the same. it is said that English is a difficult second language to learn. and no wonder!
some people (i'm talking to you france) want to weed-out english words of their language. well here's a news flash for you; most, if not all words in the English language came from words in other languages!
look up just about any word in the dictionary & you'll see something like; "from old french meaning ___" or from greek meaning___" so it's not all strictly english you know.

confession time; i did this post mainly to use the icon (avatar) above. weird, i know.

youtube rant


what the f**k is going on with youtube?!
there's all of these problems with accessing videos and sometimes it takes forever to load videos. not to mention all of these stupid 9-11 conspiracy videos. how many people are they converting to their way of thinking anyway?! CUT IT OUT!
to all of you people posting TV episodes in 4 or 5 parts just to promote your website where you have these things CUT IT OUT TOO! and why do all of these things show up when i'm trying to find some star trek related videos?
