Avatar News!

After the ginormous disappointment of the movie (yes, I watched it, and yes, I wish I hadn't spent the money), here is some exciting news for any other Avatar fans on my flist.

Nickelodeon has green-lighted an official spin-off of A:TLA, called 'The Legend of Korra.

It's going to be set 70 years or so after the original, and Aang's son will be teaching the new Avatar Korra, a fierce-sounding girl from the Southern Water Tribe.

OH YES AND IT'S GOING TO BE AMAZING AND STEAMPUNK-TASTIC.

Just click the darn link, will you?

Hello?

Abandonment

Like many others, I no longer see any reason to keep this journal active, and will be closing down shop as soon as I get my entries archived. If you want to keep in contact with me, my AIM name and email are in my profile, and I am also updating at GreatestJournal.com, at this address: my GJ profile. It's been fun, but I don't really care for how things are being handled here.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Has it seriously been almost a month since I've written in this thing? Wow. Er... happy Independence Day, Americans. Enjoy your barbecues and whatnot.

And honestly... I'm finding it hard to believe so much time has passed. But then again, that's kind of how I feel when I realize that I'll be twenty years old next year. Just... boggledy.
What are your favourite and least favourite words? Any reasons why?

My answers:

Favourite: Abundance, cadence, sleep, deft, bell, onomatopoeia

Least favourite: Said, the

My reasons:

Abundance: Say it, now. ABUNdance. Lovely rhythm.

Cadence: Because few words make me smile and think fondly of marching band like this one does. I also read a novel by Holly Lisle? that has a female protagonist named Cadence Drake. You have to adore names like that.

Sleep: Because it's 8 AM and I've been up all night.

Deft: Deft is a word that doesn't crop up too often in your average fanfic or novel. It conveys a nice image, but like all of those rare words, it must be used cautiously.

Bell: See Cadence. No, seriously; this is one of my trigger words when used in the right phrase. Give me a good author who knows how to use his or her imagery, and I will fall in love with the words on their pages.

Onomatopoeia: COME ON. Also, I misspelled this word in a spelling bee. It's my bane.

Said: Said is a necessary evil. I hate using it in my writing, but you only get a number of "shouted" and "stated" and "yelled" before your prose falls flat on its over-verbose face.

The: Yet another "ick" word. Just have to be careful your sentences don't turn into repetitions of the cat and the mouse took the time to play on the hardwood floor before the cat dragged the rodent over to the piano, whereupon the feline devoured the helpless vermin. I mean, SNORE. And bore. And... ick.

Now, for sleep. The sweetest word of all.

My bullshit radar goes pingpingping...

The mail came. I got an envelope from Vector (no return address), and the enclosed text exactly as follows.

But I graduated in 2006...Collapse )

None of the bolded parts are formatted that way for emphasis. So. Scam?

ETA: Also, no website for further information was listed.

Well then.

See Mr Berkowitz redefine fauxpology.

See 6A/LJ blow it like dynamite.

FAIL. FAIL FAIL FAIL.

*steadfastly ignores HP fandom*

This is pretty cool. This is kind of disturbing.

And this is plain awesome.

Discuss.

LA LA LA THERE IS NOT A HUGE PORN WANKFEST.
