So I've been reading Sky High slash fics. If you're unfamiliar with Sky High, you should watch this slashy   Disney film. It's fun and it's about  superpowered teens coming into their powers and learning about controlling them how to be a hero (or a sidekick) at superhero school (classes include Mad Scientist, etc.). It's entertaining. The "hero" of the film is Will and his "enemy" is Warren (Will's dad arrested Warren's dad since Warren's dad was a supervillian and Warren hates Will because of this). Really, go watch it (one character turns into a mangeta guinea pig as a superpower and another one glows). It's hilarious. It's fun to watch the various relationships in the movie grow and progress. Actual character development!

So, there's not much slash in the fandom (het or gen mainly); the main slash pairing is usually Warren/Will and Warren/other character. Since it's a small fandom based on a movie, there's little (well-written) fic (especially in slash fics). VickyVicarious' fics (I braved the Pit of Voles!) have been entertaining me and they're well-written/entertaining for this fandom (better than average in this fandom). She writes Warren/Will. I've been reading and enjoying her fics. I just finished Fate in Flames and really liked it. It's more of slow progression from friendship to a relationship using Chinese proverbs and fortune cookies! Fortune cookies! Yeah, that amused me. Will's nervous about coming out and it has a more realistic vibe to the story (don't wanna spoiler too much). I've only read her SH stuff but I've enjoyed each SH story that I've read.

Sky High fic also located here on LJ: Sky High Fanfic (gen, het, slash) and Brains & Brawn: Warren and Will Slash

If you want to see what the Creation Museum is like without actually spending money to go there and go inside, go to the John Scalzi flicker page to see the photos of his visit to the so-called museum which has displays of dinosaurs peacefully coexisting with humans! Yes, the museum exists and it is not a joke. Read the explanations of Biblical history! Laugh and mock at how the mental gymnastics involved in their beliefs. Boy, are his readers mean. Hehehehehe. See, Scalzi said he'd go and visit and take photos if his readers gave him money to--paid his money. He said in less than 24 hours he had the money necessary to go several times to the museum. I forget what he said he did with the rest of the money--I want to think he said he gave it to a charity. I've never read his books, just his blog, Whatever, occassionally. Hey, he taped bacon to his cat!

The Amazon reviews of the Three Wolf Moon T-shirt are hilarious. I lol'ed reading the Dual Function Design review, which extolls the women attracting virtues of the shirt.

I've been playing American McGee's Alice videogame (PC version). I downloaded it via torrent--not paying past retail for a videogame (Amazon seller wanted almost $200 for a 2000 year videogame. No. Just. No.) . I'm really liking it. It got really fun after I set Alice to god mode. I prefer using my Playstations and handhelds in playing games--I usually don't play PC games since I really don't like controlling them via keyboard. I either was going to have to buy a joystick (no money--unemployed) or play God mode since I could use the keyboard controls quickly enough to control Alice's movement. I'm liking the darker version of Alice. Watch cutscenes here. I'm pouting 'cause I really can't find fic for the game although I get why (Alice is the only human so it'd be furry, which isn't to everyones taste (sometimes I like it sometimes I don't). I like the voice acting in the game--especially the Chesire Cat's voice. They did a really good job on it and Alice, I think. A new Alice game is supposed to come out for the consoles. I'll be looking for it. I hope I find I job soon.
