I am on a ROLL this week! The Man From Doom, soooort of Prince Lotor, but proooobably not?

...I spent too much time trying to look up reference pictures for Lotor and found that 90% of the Voltron fansites I found on Google were around in 1996 when I first started running around on the internet.

I guess it's too much to expect from folks. I mean it IS an old anime, but the original Go Lion was recently released at Best Buy a few weeks ago. I'm pretty sure there's a young 16 year old out there with enough patience or rabies to screencap Lotor to pieces and throw the screencaps up on her own webserver that isn't powered by Tripod. Or maybe I expect too much from people. XD I DID find a bunch of terrible AMVs uploaded to YouTube done to Britney Spears songs, though. D:

It's just so much easier these days to get screenshots of stuff. All you basically need is a DVD Drive and the right DVD playing software. Back then, you needed to find a way to hook your VCR up to your computer, and then have it run off a program there and all this extra analog mess and very small resolution, etc. etc. etc. etc. ad nauseum.

...the Get Smart Can.
I was very very stupid for Get Smart when I was growing up, and now Get Smart has joined forces with Steve Carell, whom I have a GINOURMOUS crush on. Regardless if the movie is a flop, Steve Carell is still going to be hot. It is a win/win situation for me.

Edit because this was kind of a nothing entry:
In other news, I broke down and went to the junk store to pick up a 7-dollar VCR after trying out a 20-dollar DVD player that didn't work because apparently, there's two kinds of coaxial cable, and the DVD player only took the digital kind. I'd gotten it from work, which is 15 miles down the highway, so I just went up to the Bel Air store and this lady sold me on a converter thinggie that cost me five bucks, but didn't do any good because it needed to go through an antenna or cable box to work. Frustrated as all hell, I tore back up to Bel Air, went to the damn Goodwill, and picked the oldest VCR I could find - one with a TV/VCR button on the front that I could find perfectly fine and get it to function without a remote. It doesn't play tapes, but all it needs to do is connect the TV to the Playstation 2. My TV is from 1989, so it doesn't have any fancy schmancy inputs like TVs nowadays do. Hopefully, the TV won't die. The damn VCR I bought was really heavy. With all my old school analog shit, I won't get TV, but the Cylons will never get me. Joking of course. I just realized that I joke about that in deadpan a lot. I'm just being silly.

I am still VCRless.
Went out with the Kevin today. Had awesome sushi at Kobe, with a very talkative sushi bar preparer, then we went to see Indiana Jones ). After that, we went back to his house and watched Blade Runner. I hadn't seen it in a long time, and I'd only remembered Rutger Hauer's very very blonde hair, and the origami unicorn at the end from when I'd seen it the first time. It had the same atmospheric quality as Legend, probably because the same guy directed it, and the same guy did the music. Goooo Ridley Scott! Gooo Vangelis! :D I needed to watch it again, just to feel more up-to-date on cyberpunk...even though cyberpunk seems to be outdating itself for every second that goes by, I still love it to death. Story-gods, please give me more stories about robots wanting to dream. I can't get enough of them.

Pris reminds me of Oona. As a Xenosaga fan, I am obligated to make a statement like this: Lieutenant Virgil, Roy Batty called. He wants his eyeliner back.

After Blade Runner, there was youtubbage.
Industrial Love - VNV Nation Remix
Russian Airborne Troops Music Video [VDV]

A band that I like, Covenant, are also fans of Blade Runner. Of course, I would have not known this, if not for Kevin. <3 They have a song called Like Tears in Rain, which is one of Roy Batty's last lines in the movie, and one called The Replicant. (Youtube videos linked are fan-made, because in the age of Youtube, almost everything I like is available...but usually only through rabid fans of some sort that spend all of their time making AMVs or VMVs.)

Oi.
So, it wasn't just the starter that was gone. It was my axel boots, and a gunked up engine. Turned out costing...a lot of money that I'm going to pay back to my dad, whether he wants to take it or not. I could have opted to get a new one, but I don't want to be paying for a car for all of my adult working life. Granted, my car's back windows have been taped up for two years, and it needs new struts, too, but at least the car starts up like a happy squirrel now. ^^;

So, I closed last night. And opened this morning. I decided to stay up all night and play Persona 3: FES. That wasn't so bad. Worked a little on The Shovel, got me some diet coke, sat back for a bit and...there came a strange KZZT noise from my VCR. And then an electric pop. Then the VCR shut off. For good. A battery had rolled near where the coaxial cable was connected from the TV to the VCR. The battery heated up and fried some circuits but good. I was going to have to get another one, but the Inventory supervisor at my work offered to GIVE me his old one. :D People are awesome. Very, very awesome. Still, this is the first time I can say that a piece of electronic equipment that I've owned has blown up. My room still smells like sulfur. It was just a little puff of smoke, and it could have been a lot worse. I should have gotten up to look at it before, though. Looks like I can't play video games on the TV in my room until tomorrow.

I am still awake from last night.
I need to remedy this.
