You've Probably Guessed It, But. .

October 30, 2013

. .but I'm going to no longer update this blog. It's time to move on to bigger and grander things, like writing books, competing in the NaNoWriMo, searching for PopTarts, and the like. Oh, and pretty soon college.

To be honest, I'm a bit sad. I've been blogging for quite a few years, and I'm definitely going to miss making fun of Emily and Buck, and ranting about Penny or Wooton, or being snarky. It's been fun. 

BUT.

It's not over!

Some of you have doubtless been following or reading on my other blog, Josh the Normal. I'll be posting there at least twice a month starting next year. And I'm still around in the Interwebz elsewhere. I'm always around. Just like Big Brother. 

So to everyone who's been with me since 2009, muchas gracias! Thank you for not hating (and for hating), and for coming back even when I bashed your favorite characters. For putting up with my awkward immaturity in my earlier years (and who's to say it's completely gone now, EH?). For coming back even when I took forever in responding. I thank you.

And let it never be said that I ended something on a serious note, because. .

. . .

. . .

I just lost the Game. And so did you.

Groundhog Jay

December 4, 2012
Because I feel so nice. .I'm actually gonna review Groundhog Jay. Feel special, random person who's reading this.

Okay, so before I start this, I just wanna say--why are all these inventions coming back in overkill? We've had Matthew's 2-episode adventure in the Imagination Station,  Emily's really short adventure in the IS, and Barret's 3-part adventure in the Room of Coincedences--er, Consequences. Why? Everything comes in huge doses nowadays. First we get a bunch of new characters--and always the same ones, for the most part--and now a huge amount of some of Whit's inventions, which, for the most part, haven't been used on the air since Album 50. BUT WHY NOW?

Anyways. So we begin with Barrett and Priscilla--who sounds like a typical teenage girl who doesn't like talking a lot. Meh. As usual, Jay is my favorite character--quite possibly out of ALL the characters since the relaunch. "Tata, cheerio, and all that." Awesome. 

So, Jay sets them off onto an adventure to goodness knows where (how does Priscilla know he's started it if she doesn't "do it"? Hmm?)--and they wind up outside of Whit's End. Not somewhere with King Arthur. Boo. 

"Open Sesame!" Jay goes, quickly deciding that he doesn't wanna stick around. But why not try going to the RoC again? And take an adventure? And see what happens? In fact, if I were them, why not talk to Whit and tell them that this was an adventure that they were in?! Wouldn't it be cool?! Er. Harry With the Slightly Distracting Unibrow apparently knows Jay from somewhere, somehow, and is mad with him, so he takes him out to have a "discussion". .when everything resets. Whaa?
 
So Priscilla is a smartie and figures out that this is supposed to happen when everything repeats, and quickly figures out that Jay is actually supposed to be Barrett. But in comes Harry With the Slightly Distracting Unibrow. Again. Yay. QUICK YOU GUYS FIGURE IT OUT.  And then. .the program resets. Again. Oh, joy. 

Once again. They're at the start. Jay, who's getting annoyed, demands that Priscilla figure out the solution. Together, they try to put the pieces together. Harry is upset about something that Barrett called him about, so Jay runs as fast as he can. Connie doesn't spill the soda floats this time, so is that a sign? So Priscilla decides that something's happening at the moment they arrive, so they need to do something. .and it resets again. *sigh*

So now it's what, time #4? Jay vows to make sure that Harry With the Slightly Distracting Unibrow will RUE THE DAY! *loved the reference* So Priscilla says they should go out the front door as opposed to the back door. .and see Harry-bruzer. Why does Jay know bushes, though? He likes to sneak around? They listen to the conversation Harry has with his little brother, and so they follow the little kid for more clues. .involving presents =o So they follow the kid, and Jay is impressed that Priscilla has a secret side. .and they listen in on the conversation Mikey has with the store clerk. More info is gleaned about this. .stolen present *blinks* But what decision is Barrett supposed to make? 

As they keep following Mikey, Jay suddenly decides to quit ("Every action has an opposite fraction," he says), and he runs from Harry the Barbarian. .into the bushes. Again. And they see Harry. .with Jay. WHAT? Mikey comes out, and the real Jay critiques the RoC Jay on his manly looks. But then we find out what the surprise is! It's a bike! And right here, I think I've figured out what Barrett wants to do. He wants to give Harry money to get a new bike for Mikey. Maybe? *is still listening* The real Jay gets ready to see RoC Jay get beaten. .not. The real Jay goes out and demands that Harry lets go of the RoC Jay--who the real Jay calls Mr. America--and grab him, the real one (but not too tight, mind you.)  The real Jay tells Harry to threaten to pound him. .and they reset. 

Thanks to Jay's smartness AND good looks, they're back in Whit's End. Jay takes the sodas from Connie, sets them down, and then tells Priscilla everything. He and Vance saw Mikey's bike, and Vance decides to take it. .well, Jay does. So why does Barrett take the adventure?  And then Jay realizes! He tells Harry-bruzer/the Barbarian that the kid named Jay Smouse took it. .and that he's sorry. Again, really. JAY HAS A HEART. Between that little escapade with the old woman in Album. .54? And this? And his worrying over Uncle Wally? Jay's good. 

And so the adventure comes to an end! At last! And Barrett tells Jay everything. .but really? This was the best way to go around it? Sneaking to make sure Jay does what's right? Blah. 

Still, I'm glad we had an episode with Jay, although the point seemed kinda. .meh. Do the right thing. We have a lot of episodes about doing the right thing, but at least it was done in a more creative way. And so I give this episode a 7/10. 

Au revoir,
Marvin




Of Episodes and Blogs, and the Like

October 24, 2012

Okie days. First thing. General thoughts over the episodes I've missed, no? Which aren't. .that many, actually =P

Child's Play--I heard the first half at Christian's house, and didn't finish it until far later =P However! It was nice to see Eugene and Katrina with kids for an extended period of time. It added some. .depth to them. Especially after what happened in "To Mend and Repair." I really do hope at some point they decide to have kids, although Eugene is slightly more. .scary as a parent. 

Something Old, Something New--I heard this episode when I was in New York, but only the first one. Since I already knew what was going to happen and was positively annoyed, I had no desire to hear any more of Mitch. In fact, I didn't listen to part 2 until September, quite some time after Christian gave me Album 56. Honestly. .it was just meh. Frankly, anything with Wooton and Penny is, for starters. And then Emily. And then Mitch. Yes, the whole thing about regrets was okay, but really? Why drag Mitch in just to have him tell the world he's getting married? Why wouldn't he have kept in contact before? Then there's the end, where Whit talks to Connie. I didn't like it. I'm never going to get used to Andre, but whenever he's discussing something that he, the actor wasn't around for, it feels. .wrong. Whatever. 

Thus ends Album 55. 56 started just recently. .and while the premiere was great, the next 2 episodes were. .not so great. 

The Perfect Church--Finally! The Imagination Station! Just like what Kelly did during her adventure. The door thing is interesting, although it seems we jump quickly through time now. It's great to hear from actors who we don't normally hear from, and it was very realistic. The Pentecost scene was so. .real. It was almost as if I was actually there. From healing the lame man to the discussions the characters had, it had a lot of depth and meaning to it. But for some
reason, the 2nd episode didn't have the same feel as the 1st. There was a lot more talking, and everything seemed to jump around in time, and the scenes moved quickly. The only part which I actually somewhat liked was the end with Stephen.

Great Expecations—Okay. Emily. EVERYTHING WAS GOING SO WELL BEFORE THIS D: As soon as she walks in, she sounds. .giggly. Like Buck’s around again. Then again, that’s Emily. I’m so glad to hear from Joanne, but if they’ve been in town, why haven’t they ever been around? It’s what really annoys me about the relaunch. We had all these characters—Marvin, Tamika, Grady, Mandy, Trent, Kelly, and some of the older ones like Jimmy, Curt, Jack, Lucy, and Jared, but just like that they’re gone. All their work. .and we don’t hear from them? Not even one? instead, we’re overrun with the Parkers and Jones and the occasional friend practically every episode, and it makes me wonder if anyone ELSE visits Whit’s End now. Anyways. The Imagination Station adventure was in no way a classic for me. I disliked it. First, it was too short, and secondly, the scenes jumped around so quickly, and was so disjointed it made little to no sense at all. There was no connection, and because of the time before and after the adventure, there was so little time dedicated to the actual adventure it felt like we were missing out. Ultimately, I felt as if there was nothing gained, and other than hearing Joanne again (and hearing Whit’s gonna take flying lessons. .), that was it. Also, I feel something needs to be done about Whit. They can’t freeze him in time permanently. He’s younger already, and, assuming he fought in World War II at the age of 20, by now he’d be. .far older than he is =P More like, 90.

Now. A quick look at Odyssey in general. Album 51 and 52 were, for the most part, pretty bad. There were a few good episodes here and there, but generally, nothing redeeming. Then 53. It was okay. I’m glad the mystery didn’t center around Matthew and Emily, but at the same time. .well, if any of you have read my 1,000+ word reviews on those, you know my feelings. 54 and 55 definitely were far better, but there’s always a feeling of. .longing. For things to return to how they were. They never will, obviously, but with all the new characters, what can we expect? It also seems more targeted at younger kids now, something it didn’t do as heavily before. I do hope that there’s some change. Somehow. Maybe. =P

SECOND SUBJECT OF CONCERN.

Odyssey blogs.

Can you guess what I’m gonna say?

There’s too many. Now, I am NOT saying all the new blogs are supposed to close down. That wouldn’t be fair. But at the same time, I’ve looked around all the various blogs on my Kindle, and there seem to be so many I can’t tell one from the other! The only one I really visit is the Odyssey Scoop and The Voice of Odyssey, and I also go to Old Judge’s on occasion since it’s the only other one that really sticks out. But when there are so many blogs that all practically write the same thing the other ones are doing, what’s the difference? And before you say I’m being a hypocrite, I’ve wondered if I was doing it xD In fact, I’ve considered closing this down. .but for now, I won’t. There’s this one blog I stumbled over that had lots of fan-drawn art, I believe. That’s different. Something unlike the other blogs. It stood out to me. If the other blogs found something that set them apart, it would make them more. .unique. interesting. Instead of reporting the new devotional Odyssey’s bringing out, just like the other 39 blogs are doing. Does anyone understand? =P

FINAL SUBJECT OF CONCERN.

The Official Podcast.

. . .

I think I’ll save that for another day, since everyone probably hates me for what I already said.

Hey peeps.

October 22, 2012

That's right. I'M BACK. AND I'M HERE TO STAY. 

However, I feel too lazy to review any episodes right now. In fact, I haven't even heard  Great Expectations yet. NaNoWriMo is starting soon, and so is school, and there's plenty of housework, so we'll see how things work.

But I'm not going anywhere now ;)

Marvin  

Yes, I Still Live. .

August 1, 2012

. .is anyone still around? *brushes off dust and turns on a light*

Good. This thing still works. I remembered my password. .

Yep. I'm alive.

The last few months have been  quite busy, and it's only now things have slowed down. .but I won't be blogging, still :P I just thought I'd post for the few people who actually still check *coughs* But! I got to see Christian again last week (it seems much longer. .) before we left, which was pretty cool, since we didn't think it would work out.

I also have been listening to the Album 55 episodes again (since I didn't review them, nor plan to), but I will say Odyssey is definitely better than the earlier albums. .except for Whit. I don't think I'll ever get used to Andre Stojka. Ever.

*vanishes to the beaches again*

Marvin 

And it's finally here. .

April 29, 2012

Hey gaise.
I leave tomorrow. Today's our last full day here. We've been busy all day long, and I was ready to go to bed at 4 p.m. This last week has been one of the busiest ever, second only to the week before camp. We're all tired, stressed, and cranky =P Anyways, we leave for the airport around 6 our time, and the flight takes off at 10:15 p.m., which is 6:15 ET. It's a direct flight with United Airlines to Chicago, with a technical stop at Washington DC. After that, we're in Missouri. .we arrive Tuesday afternoon, I think. On Wednesday I meet with an internet friend. .and on May 4 I arrive at Christian's house.
Here is the thread you can keep updated (at least, when I do update.) 
So if anyone could pray, it'd be appreciated. Thanks guys! 
Marvin 

Hiatus! Sort of. .

April 18, 2012

So for now. .my blog will be on hiatus. You may go ahead and cry now. 

Or not.

I will, for those of you who are curious enough, post again to give you a link to which I will ocassionaly post what's going on as I travel. I'll probably update sometime when I'm at Christian's house, and who knows when?

Also, I've added a Blog Archive thing on the side, so you can search by months :P Hope you're happy Christian.

That's all for now, folks.

[Insert snarky/clever title which I don't want to make up]

March 24, 2012

I have returned. Again. With a bucketload of reviews. Okay, maybe not. I have no idea how long my resolve is going to last. So, what better way then to just get started?

I listened to 3 episodes from Album 54 last week--I've only heard a few of them--and I thought I'd give my thoughts. (Get it? Laugh.)

Unbecoming Jay--This was an episode I couldn't decide if I hated/liked it. First, Cindy. I KNOW I didn't like her. Jay also got on my nerves, and I really don't like Barrett and Priscilla. The ongoing romantic saga between is. .blech. I don't like it. I wish they'd stay just friends. I *did* like the plot, however, but another thing I don't like is Mr. Whitaker. Yes, I said it. I don't like Andre Stojka as Whit. I might write a short post about that, but I doubt I'll have the time. Ultimately. .it was not a good episode, except for the ending scene. 

The Amazing Loser--Okay, this was better than the last. .except we had Barrett and Priscilla. Again. Characters feel overused on the show. It's always Whit and Connie and Wooton and Eugene, and for the kids, it's Matthew and Jay and Barrett and Priscilla, with the occasional appearance of other characters. It also didn't help that although there were other kids in the scavenger hunt we only stayed with those same 4 characters. What I DO like is the constant tension between Barrett and Jay. The little girl made me melt, even if she was lying =P I'm a sucker for little kids. *cough* MOVING ON. As for the end with Whit. .as I said, I really don't like him. There's something about him that's just completely different and doesn't make him Whit. Also, I wish that Barrett and Priscilla hadn't won, because those who do the good stuff almost always--in stories at least--get the happy ending. Ah, well.

You're Two Kind--VALERIE. OH NO. HIDE. She sounds most annoying. .and annoys me. We need fewer of these types of girls on the show and more of our original characters. Whatever happened to them? And huzzah for other kid characters! It was good to hear from Ryan, and I really enjoyed that half of the episode. Brad sounds like a character they should have around more, even though he doesn't seem as if he's a Christian. As for Katrina and Connie's little 'scheme', it kind of bugs me. They're basically doing something sneaky to get someone else to confess. .which was the same thing Whit did in the the maltball episode. What he did was wrong, too. Sure, the kids had done wrong, but Whit had no right to go hide them to 'force them to confess', and then act as if he had no idea what had happened to them. So, that was an average episode.

Next up, the conclusion to The Labyrinth. I don't want to write a full-out review of that because I've already spent a lot of time on the above three. I'm just going to sum it up *very* quickly. I knew Mycroft would make the right decision, and ultimately, as it all built up, I finished chewing all my fingernails--and up to now, they haven't quite grown again; one of my fingers is purple after getting into an accident with the bread machine. The whole capture scene with Dale and Ann was ruined by Ann, who reminded me far too much of Wooton in the Green Ring Conspiracy. We do NOT need this now. No. No. No. I do hope we hear from Sew again--she has more potential than Valerie Swanson or Cindy would. And finally, the conclusion. I'd read about what Billings would do, so it was no surprise when it happened. It was MUCH better than him secretly working for Mr. Grote and just pulling this off, and to be honest, I kind of actually wanted him to get rid of Grote that way. The whole scene was one of the best scenes ever, and when Jason told Billings to get ready to shoot him, I almost hoped it would happen. Now, in NO way do I not like Jason, but so far, few major characters have ever died on the show, and at the moment, only Karen comes to mind. Mitch doesn't count, either. Having a character like Jason die on the show would be. .interesting in Odyssey. Anyways, we never did find out how Jason stopped Billings, which was good/bad. If they'd done it, it probably would have been something lame. Then again, I somehow wished that they had told us what had happened. Then comes the final scene, and the possibility of Jason settling down seems actually. .possible. I'm not sure, though. He said he wanted to that in the Novacom saga, but he also said in The Decision he couldn't stay in Odyssey for good. In Malachi's Message he felt restless. Then comes the part about praying. Will he quite ever learn? The same thing happened in the Blackgaard Saga, and he mentioned it in the Novacom Saga. Also, AIO always puts more emphasis on prayer, which is good, but they always stop there. There's so much more than just praying. Jason asked Sue if she prayed, and what if she said yes? Would that imply she were a Christian? I know people who pray but aren't saved. There's more to it than just that. Regardless, without having the new Whit, and few characters, an epic plot, British accents, and an amazing ending, this episode gets a 9.5/10 stars.

You probably are all bored with me, but there is one more episode to review. .today's. I was one of the first people to listen to it as I listened to it early morning our time, which was still. .before midnight, California time :P 

So Eugene's busy again. .reminds me of the days after Katrina left. When Whit told Connie the news that we've all been dying to know, I felt. .normal. For two reasons. One, I'd figured it out, and two, there wasn't enough emotion from Whit, nor was the scene continued there. It wasn't as effective as it could have been. However, when Katrina was watching the real time fishing. .there it became real. She sounded different, she didn't want to go out. .that was what made it real. Then Mrs. Kramer. .I like her. We should hear more of her in the upcoming days. The book club was just a bad scene. What was the point? Have something realistic, actually. And then Whit and Eugene had their talk, and some sense was knocked into him. Right at the end, when he sort of broke down, I was glad. As in, that it happened. It made the whole thing more serious. We rarely ever spend much time on Eugene's emotions, so that was quite possibly one of the best parts. Now, don't forget Barrett and Priscilla. Again. *sigh* Why did they make it a big deal to read the announcements? *anxious* and I do hope Priscilla actually just got nervous, and that she does know the Pledge. That's like, knowing your name. Like she said =P The scene with Connie and Priscilla was deep enough so that it showed us that it's not all fun with those two. I did wish, however, the episode was only on those two, but I suppose this was done to make it not too. .serious? However, by far the best scene was the very last one. It was nice to actually listen to Katrina and Eugene have some. .quality time, and his being an answer to prayer. It was a very good episode, and I'll give it an 8/10, mainly lowered due to the Barrett and Priscilla part.

Well. That was certainly a long post. Kudos if you read it all. And I looked through it, and I don't think there was anything funny, so I apologize xP 

Marvin

I'M LATE I KNOW BUT HERE IT IS!

March 17, 2012

Okay peoples.

I haven't reviewed any of the last 3 episodes, I know. IN MY DEFENSE. .I'm busy. Yes, I know, that's lame. But I am. I'm considering shutting this down. .until the end of October :P At the moment, I have an abortion paper to edit and prepare for a presentation next month, a video presentation to work on, and a story to finish edit. Not to mention housework and school. That, and the fact that I'm very sick. 

BUT TO BE NICE. I shall hastily rush through reviewing the episode. .not that many of you even care that I do/do not review them, anyways xD

Okay. I listened to Episode 1 when it came out. .and the last 2 today. And to sum them all up, they're totally awesome. Why? IT TAKES PLACE IN FREAKING LONDON, FOLKS. That's ENGLAND. HOME OF DOCTOR WHO! *dies* Every time I watch a Dr. Who episode, I feel compelled to walk around the house talking in a British accent. AND WE HAD FISH AND CHIPS! *dies again* FISH AND CHIPS! Ahem. 

So besides it being in England. .we have Jason! And no Penny/Wooton/Whit/Eugene/Connie! Seriously, they've become the major characters of the show, and it's quite annoying. It was nice to have only Jason, and a brand new host of memorable characters: Sew, Agent Billings, Mycroft, Mr. Grote, and all the others. And of course, we can't forget Dale and Ann. 

Let's talk about Dale and Ann really quickly. To be frank, I disliked Ann for the most part. She sounded far too young to be Dale's wife, more like his daughter. Also, she seemed to be that. .comical character. Seriously, AIO? Seriously? Wooton's enough. In the middle of danger, we don't need another Wooton-ripoff! After a dangerous escapade, she's all "OMGSH THAT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME LETS DO THAT AGAIN ROFL!!" (I exaggerated. A little.) For example, when Dale and Jason had their talk, she interrupts, "I still can't believe Reggie Finger's a real name." Now, I'm like, "QUIET, WOMAN! GO BACK INTO THE KITCHEN AND MAKE ME MY SAMMICH."

Now, to the actual adventure itself. Yes, London. Instant epic points. The MI5? More epic points. Awesome accents that sound FAR better than the annoying Jacques? UBER MEGA AWESOME POINTS. So we open up with Agent Billings and. .the other agent *goes to check who it was* ah, yes, Agent Florin are talking. I find it quite nice that we have little back story and jump into the adventure quickly. .with a bunch of weird names. The Grinder? Reggie Fingers? I instantly liked Reggie Fingers because of his sense of. .sarcasm and his weird name. And then we meet Sue. She. .wasn't a character I liked that much, but her wit for such a young age made her. .a dimensional character. 

*fast forwards now rapidly*

Jason calls Whit. .but nothing ever came out of that. Interesting. And then we're introduced to Dale and Ann. .and BOY, has it been a long time. I only wished we could have had Melanie and Robyn after all this time. Dale and Sue end up going to the hotel to retrieve the suitcase. .and there's some lying, as expected. We keep dealing with this theme so much that it's almost. .repetitive. That was basically GRC, and now this again. All "the labyrinth". ENOUGH OF IT ALREADY. 

Sue fits in a suitcase? Seriously? That's a little. .impossible. I mean, no matter how small. .I don't really think that's possible. And of course, we have a good old fashioned chase. .and we jump into the next episode.

Hmm, we had a previously segment. I like. But it was far too long, peoples :P WE DON'T NEED AN ENTIRE RECAP! Then we see what's in the briefcase. .along with smart remarks from Ann and Sue -_- Nice stuff, though. .and then the Alamo. Most interesting. It was a little predictable that Jason would ask Ann to hide it somewhere that he wouldn't know as that's what they always do =P

Then we had the auction scene, which was quite reminscient to the GRC scene, along with the one with Wooton and Victoria. For once Ann played a useful role and gave Jason some information, so she's better than Wooton, just by that. SORRY, WOOTON. OR NOT. The conversation Jason had with Lord Brownlow was an interesting one, especially after Jason had to untie the poor driver at the end. I immediately felt suspicious of the Lord, and for hopefully obvious reasons. The US President? Niiiice. Now, I was just thinking, because this is fictional and all, how does this relate to real life? I mean, President Obama never went over there. .and nothing like this ever happened, so how far to the edge of fiction does Odyssey push it all? 

Up to this point, I wasn't all that impressed with the episodes. .besides the accents :P It still seemed somewhat childish, but it took a turn starting with the toxic chemical spills. SOUND THE ALARM! IT'S TIME! Jason initiates the Alamo, and one of the best scenes (second only to the next-to-last scene of Episode 3) happens right there. The Alamo ended in tragedy. .just like this could. And Jason agrees. I died right then. .and chewed more fingernails. (As I type this, all my fingernails are gone :P I ate them all *coughs*) 

And he's off to the hospital, and once more Sue saves the day. .I do wonder what had happened before in the hospital, though. Nothing good though. And then, BOO! Agent Billings! AW YEAH. WE HAVE A SCUFFLE! #winner There was none of this in GRC. .we really need this :P And then we learn all about Koflax. .which reminds me just a little bit about Ruku. Everything starts to fall in place now, and the climax (sort of) begins. Billings leaves, Sue comes up to Jason and tells him she's sorry. Now, in retrospect, I wonder. She said she was sorry, twice here. Could it be that she began to feel guilty when she saw him then and apologized later? *shrugs*

Now for the final scene of this episode! We finally meet *drum roll* MISTERRRRR GRRROOTTEEEEE. And to be frank. .he didn't impress me much :P His first line was okay, but after that. .he was *not* that impressive. His voice just tuned me off. I WILL give him credit because he kept his cool despite everything Jason said--smart cookie, that Jason. And then the conclusion: Use whatever methods you need to get the truth. My goodness. EPIC WIN. This got better and better. .

Okay. That ended up being long. And there's another episode. BUT WORK CALLS. SO! If at least someone says something, I shall try to write the conclusion. I know, it wasn't sarcastic, really. .but I HAVE REASON, OKAY? 

To end this all off, here is some of the background music I was listening to while working:

Yes, foreign music. There was Danish, Dutch, and Japanese as well. ENJOY.

The Deep End

February 23, 2012

The final episode summaries for Album 55 have been revealed! Something Old, Something New I and II are the last two.

Penny brainstorms ways to promote Connie's wedding planning business and one of her schemes dramatically backfires. Meanwhile, Matthew and Emily investigate a woman who may be trying to scam Jacque Henri.

So Penny again? I can't say I'm that excited about her, but I'll manage. And Jacque Henri. .I'll be frank. He annoys me. With his over-exaggerated French accent, he gets on my nerves. I know native French people, and they sound nothing like him. 

Anyway! I just realized we have a 4-parter, 2 3-parters, and one 2-parter episode, leaving us with only 2 normal length episodes. That will be most interesting. I'm anxious to listen to The Labyrinth. I haven't listened to the first episode, but I already know who comes back. Yes, I spoiled it. On purpose. 

The episodes are now available for download, but like many, I'll be waiting =P I can keep my self-control, and I really don't have that much of an urge to listen to it (which is not to say that I wouldn't take it if someone gave it to me!)

Now, The Hunger Games movies, on the other hand. . .

Yes, MAINE, this was for you :P (I also downloaded a movie shot of Peeta, and it's my wallpaper xD)

You've Probably Guessed It, But. .

October 30, 2013

. .but I'm going to no longer update this blog. It's time to move on to bigger and grander things, like writing books, competing in the NaNoWriMo, searching for PopTarts, and the like. Oh, and pretty soon college.

To be honest, I'm a bit sad. I've been blogging for quite a few years, and I'm definitely going to miss making fun of Emily and Buck, and ranting about Penny or Wooton, or being snarky. It's been fun. 

BUT.

It's not over!

Some of you have doubtless been following or reading on my other blog, Josh the Normal. I'll be posting there at least twice a month starting next year. And I'm still around in the Interwebz elsewhere. I'm always around. Just like Big Brother. 

So to everyone who's been with me since 2009, muchas gracias! Thank you for not hating (and for hating), and for coming back even when I bashed your favorite characters. For putting up with my awkward immaturity in my earlier years (and who's to say it's completely gone now, EH?). For coming back even when I took forever in responding. I thank you.

And let it never be said that I ended something on a serious note, because. .

. . .

. . .

I just lost the Game. And so did you.

Groundhog Jay

December 4, 2012
Because I feel so nice. .I'm actually gonna review Groundhog Jay. Feel special, random person who's reading this.

Okay, so before I start this, I just wanna say--why are all these inventions coming back in overkill? We've had Matthew's 2-episode adventure in the Imagination Station,  Emily's really short adventure in the IS, and Barret's 3-part adventure in the Room of Coincedences--er, Consequences. Why? Everything comes in huge doses nowadays. First we get a bunch of new characters--and always the same ones, for the most part--and now a huge amount of some of Whit's inventions, which, for the most part, haven't been used on the air since Album 50. BUT WHY NOW?

Anyways. So we begin with Barrett and Priscilla--who sounds like a typical teenage girl who doesn't like talking a lot. Meh. As usual, Jay is my favorite character--quite possibly out of ALL the characters since the relaunch. "Tata, cheerio, and all that." Awesome. 

So, Jay sets them off onto an adventure to goodness knows where (how does Priscilla know he's started it if she doesn't "do it"? Hmm?)--and they wind up outside of Whit's End. Not somewhere with King Arthur. Boo. 

"Open Sesame!" Jay goes, quickly deciding that he doesn't wanna stick around. But why not try going to the RoC again? And take an adventure? And see what happens? In fact, if I were them, why not talk to Whit and tell them that this was an adventure that they were in?! Wouldn't it be cool?! Er. Harry With the Slightly Distracting Unibrow apparently knows Jay from somewhere, somehow, and is mad with him, so he takes him out to have a "discussion". .when everything resets. Whaa?
 
So Priscilla is a smartie and figures out that this is supposed to happen when everything repeats, and quickly figures out that Jay is actually supposed to be Barrett. But in comes Harry With the Slightly Distracting Unibrow. Again. Yay. QUICK YOU GUYS FIGURE IT OUT.  And then. .the program resets. Again. Oh, joy. 

Once again. They're at the start. Jay, who's getting annoyed, demands that Priscilla figure out the solution. Together, they try to put the pieces together. Harry is upset about something that Barrett called him about, so Jay runs as fast as he can. Connie doesn't spill the soda floats this time, so is that a sign? So Priscilla decides that something's happening at the moment they arrive, so they need to do something. .and it resets again. *sigh*

So now it's what, time #4? Jay vows to make sure that Harry With the Slightly Distracting Unibrow will RUE THE DAY! *loved the reference* So Priscilla says they should go out the front door as opposed to the back door. .and see Harry-bruzer. Why does Jay know bushes, though? He likes to sneak around? They listen to the conversation Harry has with his little brother, and so they follow the little kid for more clues. .involving presents =o So they follow the kid, and Jay is impressed that Priscilla has a secret side. .and they listen in on the conversation Mikey has with the store clerk. More info is gleaned about this. .stolen present *blinks* But what decision is Barrett supposed to make? 

As they keep following Mikey, Jay suddenly decides to quit ("Every action has an opposite fraction," he says), and he runs from Harry the Barbarian. .into the bushes. Again. And they see Harry. .with Jay. WHAT? Mikey comes out, and the real Jay critiques the RoC Jay on his manly looks. But then we find out what the surprise is! It's a bike! And right here, I think I've figured out what Barrett wants to do. He wants to give Harry money to get a new bike for Mikey. Maybe? *is still listening* The real Jay gets ready to see RoC Jay get beaten. .not. The real Jay goes out and demands that Harry lets go of the RoC Jay--who the real Jay calls Mr. America--and grab him, the real one (but not too tight, mind you.)  The real Jay tells Harry to threaten to pound him. .and they reset. 

Thanks to Jay's smartness AND good looks, they're back in Whit's End. Jay takes the sodas from Connie, sets them down, and then tells Priscilla everything. He and Vance saw Mikey's bike, and Vance decides to take it. .well, Jay does. So why does Barrett take the adventure?  And then Jay realizes! He tells Harry-bruzer/the Barbarian that the kid named Jay Smouse took it. .and that he's sorry. Again, really. JAY HAS A HEART. Between that little escapade with the old woman in Album. .54? And this? And his worrying over Uncle Wally? Jay's good. 

And so the adventure comes to an end! At last! And Barrett tells Jay everything. .but really? This was the best way to go around it? Sneaking to make sure Jay does what's right? Blah. 

Still, I'm glad we had an episode with Jay, although the point seemed kinda. .meh. Do the right thing. We have a lot of episodes about doing the right thing, but at least it was done in a more creative way. And so I give this episode a 7/10. 

Au revoir,
Marvin




Of Episodes and Blogs, and the Like

October 24, 2012

Okie days. First thing. General thoughts over the episodes I've missed, no? Which aren't. .that many, actually =P

Child's Play--I heard the first half at Christian's house, and didn't finish it until far later =P However! It was nice to see Eugene and Katrina with kids for an extended period of time. It added some. .depth to them. Especially after what happened in "To Mend and Repair." I really do hope at some point they decide to have kids, although Eugene is slightly more. .scary as a parent. 

Something Old, Something New--I heard this episode when I was in New York, but only the first one. Since I already knew what was going to happen and was positively annoyed, I had no desire to hear any more of Mitch. In fact, I didn't listen to part 2 until September, quite some time after Christian gave me Album 56. Honestly. .it was just meh. Frankly, anything with Wooton and Penny is, for starters. And then Emily. And then Mitch. Yes, the whole thing about regrets was okay, but really? Why drag Mitch in just to have him tell the world he's getting married? Why wouldn't he have kept in contact before? Then there's the end, where Whit talks to Connie. I didn't like it. I'm never going to get used to Andre, but whenever he's discussing something that he, the actor wasn't around for, it feels. .wrong. Whatever. 

Thus ends Album 55. 56 started just recently. .and while the premiere was great, the next 2 episodes were. .not so great. 

The Perfect Church--Finally! The Imagination Station! Just like what Kelly did during her adventure. The door thing is interesting, although it seems we jump quickly through time now. It's great to hear from actors who we don't normally hear from, and it was very realistic. The Pentecost scene was so. .real. It was almost as if I was actually there. From healing the lame man to the discussions the characters had, it had a lot of depth and meaning to it. But for some
reason, the 2nd episode didn't have the same feel as the 1st. There was a lot more talking, and everything seemed to jump around in time, and the scenes moved quickly. The only part which I actually somewhat liked was the end with Stephen.

Great Expecations—Okay. Emily. EVERYTHING WAS GOING SO WELL BEFORE THIS D: As soon as she walks in, she sounds. .giggly. Like Buck’s around again. Then again, that’s Emily. I’m so glad to hear from Joanne, but if they’ve been in town, why haven’t they ever been around? It’s what really annoys me about the relaunch. We had all these characters—Marvin, Tamika, Grady, Mandy, Trent, Kelly, and some of the older ones like Jimmy, Curt, Jack, Lucy, and Jared, but just like that they’re gone. All their work. .and we don’t hear from them? Not even one? instead, we’re overrun with the Parkers and Jones and the occasional friend practically every episode, and it makes me wonder if anyone ELSE visits Whit’s End now. Anyways. The Imagination Station adventure was in no way a classic for me. I disliked it. First, it was too short, and secondly, the scenes jumped around so quickly, and was so disjointed it made little to no sense at all. There was no connection, and because of the time before and after the adventure, there was so little time dedicated to the actual adventure it felt like we were missing out. Ultimately, I felt as if there was nothing gained, and other than hearing Joanne again (and hearing Whit’s gonna take flying lessons. .), that was it. Also, I feel something needs to be done about Whit. They can’t freeze him in time permanently. He’s younger already, and, assuming he fought in World War II at the age of 20, by now he’d be. .far older than he is =P More like, 90.

Now. A quick look at Odyssey in general. Album 51 and 52 were, for the most part, pretty bad. There were a few good episodes here and there, but generally, nothing redeeming. Then 53. It was okay. I’m glad the mystery didn’t center around Matthew and Emily, but at the same time. .well, if any of you have read my 1,000+ word reviews on those, you know my feelings. 54 and 55 definitely were far better, but there’s always a feeling of. .longing. For things to return to how they were. They never will, obviously, but with all the new characters, what can we expect? It also seems more targeted at younger kids now, something it didn’t do as heavily before. I do hope that there’s some change. Somehow. Maybe. =P

SECOND SUBJECT OF CONCERN.

Odyssey blogs.

Can you guess what I’m gonna say?

There’s too many. Now, I am NOT saying all the new blogs are supposed to close down. That wouldn’t be fair. But at the same time, I’ve looked around all the various blogs on my Kindle, and there seem to be so many I can’t tell one from the other! The only one I really visit is the Odyssey Scoop and The Voice of Odyssey, and I also go to Old Judge’s on occasion since it’s the only other one that really sticks out. But when there are so many blogs that all practically write the same thing the other ones are doing, what’s the difference? And before you say I’m being a hypocrite, I’ve wondered if I was doing it xD In fact, I’ve considered closing this down. .but for now, I won’t. There’s this one blog I stumbled over that had lots of fan-drawn art, I believe. That’s different. Something unlike the other blogs. It stood out to me. If the other blogs found something that set them apart, it would make them more. .unique. interesting. Instead of reporting the new devotional Odyssey’s bringing out, just like the other 39 blogs are doing. Does anyone understand? =P

FINAL SUBJECT OF CONCERN.

The Official Podcast.

. . .

I think I’ll save that for another day, since everyone probably hates me for what I already said.

Hey peeps.

October 22, 2012

That's right. I'M BACK. AND I'M HERE TO STAY. 

However, I feel too lazy to review any episodes right now. In fact, I haven't even heard  Great Expectations yet. NaNoWriMo is starting soon, and so is school, and there's plenty of housework, so we'll see how things work.

But I'm not going anywhere now ;)

Marvin  

Yes, I Still Live. .

August 1, 2012

. .is anyone still around? *brushes off dust and turns on a light*

Good. This thing still works. I remembered my password. .

Yep. I'm alive.

The last few months have been  quite busy, and it's only now things have slowed down. .but I won't be blogging, still :P I just thought I'd post for the few people who actually still check *coughs* But! I got to see Christian again last week (it seems much longer. .) before we left, which was pretty cool, since we didn't think it would work out.

I also have been listening to the Album 55 episodes again (since I didn't review them, nor plan to), but I will say Odyssey is definitely better than the earlier albums. .except for Whit. I don't think I'll ever get used to Andre Stojka. Ever.

*vanishes to the beaches again*

Marvin 

And it's finally here. .

April 29, 2012

Hey gaise.
I leave tomorrow. Today's our last full day here. We've been busy all day long, and I was ready to go to bed at 4 p.m. This last week has been one of the busiest ever, second only to the week before camp. We're all tired, stressed, and cranky =P Anyways, we leave for the airport around 6 our time, and the flight takes off at 10:15 p.m., which is 6:15 ET. It's a direct flight with United Airlines to Chicago, with a technical stop at Washington DC. After that, we're in Missouri. .we arrive Tuesday afternoon, I think. On Wednesday I meet with an internet friend. .and on May 4 I arrive at Christian's house.
Here is the thread you can keep updated (at least, when I do update.) 
So if anyone could pray, it'd be appreciated. Thanks guys! 
Marvin 

Hiatus! Sort of. .

April 18, 2012

So for now. .my blog will be on hiatus. You may go ahead and cry now. 

Or not.

I will, for those of you who are curious enough, post again to give you a link to which I will ocassionaly post what's going on as I travel. I'll probably update sometime when I'm at Christian's house, and who knows when?

Also, I've added a Blog Archive thing on the side, so you can search by months :P Hope you're happy Christian.

That's all for now, folks.

[Insert snarky/clever title which I don't want to make up]

March 24, 2012

I have returned. Again. With a bucketload of reviews. Okay, maybe not. I have no idea how long my resolve is going to last. So, what better way then to just get started?

I listened to 3 episodes from Album 54 last week--I've only heard a few of them--and I thought I'd give my thoughts. (Get it? Laugh.)

Unbecoming Jay--This was an episode I couldn't decide if I hated/liked it. First, Cindy. I KNOW I didn't like her. Jay also got on my nerves, and I really don't like Barrett and Priscilla. The ongoing romantic saga between is. .blech. I don't like it. I wish they'd stay just friends. I *did* like the plot, however, but another thing I don't like is Mr. Whitaker. Yes, I said it. I don't like Andre Stojka as Whit. I might write a short post about that, but I doubt I'll have the time. Ultimately. .it was not a good episode, except for the ending scene. 

The Amazing Loser--Okay, this was better than the last. .except we had Barrett and Priscilla. Again. Characters feel overused on the show. It's always Whit and Connie and Wooton and Eugene, and for the kids, it's Matthew and Jay and Barrett and Priscilla, with the occasional appearance of other characters. It also didn't help that although there were other kids in the scavenger hunt we only stayed with those same 4 characters. What I DO like is the constant tension between Barrett and Jay. The little girl made me melt, even if she was lying =P I'm a sucker for little kids. *cough* MOVING ON. As for the end with Whit. .as I said, I really don't like him. There's something about him that's just completely different and doesn't make him Whit. Also, I wish that Barrett and Priscilla hadn't won, because those who do the good stuff almost always--in stories at least--get the happy ending. Ah, well.

You're Two Kind--VALERIE. OH NO. HIDE. She sounds most annoying. .and annoys me. We need fewer of these types of girls on the show and more of our original characters. Whatever happened to them? And huzzah for other kid characters! It was good to hear from Ryan, and I really enjoyed that half of the episode. Brad sounds like a character they should have around more, even though he doesn't seem as if he's a Christian. As for Katrina and Connie's little 'scheme', it kind of bugs me. They're basically doing something sneaky to get someone else to confess. .which was the same thing Whit did in the the maltball episode. What he did was wrong, too. Sure, the kids had done wrong, but Whit had no right to go hide them to 'force them to confess', and then act as if he had no idea what had happened to them. So, that was an average episode.

Next up, the conclusion to The Labyrinth. I don't want to write a full-out review of that because I've already spent a lot of time on the above three. I'm just going to sum it up *very* quickly. I knew Mycroft would make the right decision, and ultimately, as it all built up, I finished chewing all my fingernails--and up to now, they haven't quite grown again; one of my fingers is purple after getting into an accident with the bread machine. The whole capture scene with Dale and Ann was ruined by Ann, who reminded me far too much of Wooton in the Green Ring Conspiracy. We do NOT need this now. No. No. No. I do hope we hear from Sew again--she has more potential than Valerie Swanson or Cindy would. And finally, the conclusion. I'd read about what Billings would do, so it was no surprise when it happened. It was MUCH better than him secretly working for Mr. Grote and just pulling this off, and to be honest, I kind of actually wanted him to get rid of Grote that way. The whole scene was one of the best scenes ever, and when Jason told Billings to get ready to shoot him, I almost hoped it would happen. Now, in NO way do I not like Jason, but so far, few major characters have ever died on the show, and at the moment, only Karen comes to mind. Mitch doesn't count, either. Having a character like Jason die on the show would be. .interesting in Odyssey. Anyways, we never did find out how Jason stopped Billings, which was good/bad. If they'd done it, it probably would have been something lame. Then again, I somehow wished that they had told us what had happened. Then comes the final scene, and the possibility of Jason settling down seems actually. .possible. I'm not sure, though. He said he wanted to that in the Novacom saga, but he also said in The Decision he couldn't stay in Odyssey for good. In Malachi's Message he felt restless. Then comes the part about praying. Will he quite ever learn? The same thing happened in the Blackgaard Saga, and he mentioned it in the Novacom Saga. Also, AIO always puts more emphasis on prayer, which is good, but they always stop there. There's so much more than just praying. Jason asked Sue if she prayed, and what if she said yes? Would that imply she were a Christian? I know people who pray but aren't saved. There's more to it than just that. Regardless, without having the new Whit, and few characters, an epic plot, British accents, and an amazing ending, this episode gets a 9.5/10 stars.

You probably are all bored with me, but there is one more episode to review. .today's. I was one of the first people to listen to it as I listened to it early morning our time, which was still. .before midnight, California time :P 

So Eugene's busy again. .reminds me of the days after Katrina left. When Whit told Connie the news that we've all been dying to know, I felt. .normal. For two reasons. One, I'd figured it out, and two, there wasn't enough emotion from Whit, nor was the scene continued there. It wasn't as effective as it could have been. However, when Katrina was watching the real time fishing. .there it became real. She sounded different, she didn't want to go out. .that was what made it real. Then Mrs. Kramer. .I like her. We should hear more of her in the upcoming days. The book club was just a bad scene. What was the point? Have something realistic, actually. And then Whit and Eugene had their talk, and some sense was knocked into him. Right at the end, when he sort of broke down, I was glad. As in, that it happened. It made the whole thing more serious. We rarely ever spend much time on Eugene's emotions, so that was quite possibly one of the best parts. Now, don't forget Barrett and Priscilla. Again. *sigh* Why did they make it a big deal to read the announcements? *anxious* and I do hope Priscilla actually just got nervous, and that she does know the Pledge. That's like, knowing your name. Like she said =P The scene with Connie and Priscilla was deep enough so that it showed us that it's not all fun with those two. I did wish, however, the episode was only on those two, but I suppose this was done to make it not too. .serious? However, by far the best scene was the very last one. It was nice to actually listen to Katrina and Eugene have some. .quality time, and his being an answer to prayer. It was a very good episode, and I'll give it an 8/10, mainly lowered due to the Barrett and Priscilla part.

Well. That was certainly a long post. Kudos if you read it all. And I looked through it, and I don't think there was anything funny, so I apologize xP 

Marvin

I'M LATE I KNOW BUT HERE IT IS!

March 17, 2012

Okay peoples.

I haven't reviewed any of the last 3 episodes, I know. IN MY DEFENSE. .I'm busy. Yes, I know, that's lame. But I am. I'm considering shutting this down. .until the end of October :P At the moment, I have an abortion paper to edit and prepare for a presentation next month, a video presentation to work on, and a story to finish edit. Not to mention housework and school. That, and the fact that I'm very sick. 

BUT TO BE NICE. I shall hastily rush through reviewing the episode. .not that many of you even care that I do/do not review them, anyways xD

Okay. I listened to Episode 1 when it came out. .and the last 2 today. And to sum them all up, they're totally awesome. Why? IT TAKES PLACE IN FREAKING LONDON, FOLKS. That's ENGLAND. HOME OF DOCTOR WHO! *dies* Every time I watch a Dr. Who episode, I feel compelled to walk around the house talking in a British accent. AND WE HAD FISH AND CHIPS! *dies again* FISH AND CHIPS! Ahem. 

So besides it being in England. .we have Jason! And no Penny/Wooton/Whit/Eugene/Connie! Seriously, they've become the major characters of the show, and it's quite annoying. It was nice to have only Jason, and a brand new host of memorable characters: Sew, Agent Billings, Mycroft, Mr. Grote, and all the others. And of course, we can't forget Dale and Ann. 

Let's talk about Dale and Ann really quickly. To be frank, I disliked Ann for the most part. She sounded far too young to be Dale's wife, more like his daughter. Also, she seemed to be that. .comical character. Seriously, AIO? Seriously? Wooton's enough. In the middle of danger, we don't need another Wooton-ripoff! After a dangerous escapade, she's all "OMGSH THAT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME LETS DO THAT AGAIN ROFL!!" (I exaggerated. A little.) For example, when Dale and Jason had their talk, she interrupts, "I still can't believe Reggie Finger's a real name." Now, I'm like, "QUIET, WOMAN! GO BACK INTO THE KITCHEN AND MAKE ME MY SAMMICH."

Now, to the actual adventure itself. Yes, London. Instant epic points. The MI5? More epic points. Awesome accents that sound FAR better than the annoying Jacques? UBER MEGA AWESOME POINTS. So we open up with Agent Billings and. .the other agent *goes to check who it was* ah, yes, Agent Florin are talking. I find it quite nice that we have little back story and jump into the adventure quickly. .with a bunch of weird names. The Grinder? Reggie Fingers? I instantly liked Reggie Fingers because of his sense of. .sarcasm and his weird name. And then we meet Sue. She. .wasn't a character I liked that much, but her wit for such a young age made her. .a dimensional character. 

*fast forwards now rapidly*

Jason calls Whit. .but nothing ever came out of that. Interesting. And then we're introduced to Dale and Ann. .and BOY, has it been a long time. I only wished we could have had Melanie and Robyn after all this time. Dale and Sue end up going to the hotel to retrieve the suitcase. .and there's some lying, as expected. We keep dealing with this theme so much that it's almost. .repetitive. That was basically GRC, and now this again. All "the labyrinth". ENOUGH OF IT ALREADY. 

Sue fits in a suitcase? Seriously? That's a little. .impossible. I mean, no matter how small. .I don't really think that's possible. And of course, we have a good old fashioned chase. .and we jump into the next episode.

Hmm, we had a previously segment. I like. But it was far too long, peoples :P WE DON'T NEED AN ENTIRE RECAP! Then we see what's in the briefcase. .along with smart remarks from Ann and Sue -_- Nice stuff, though. .and then the Alamo. Most interesting. It was a little predictable that Jason would ask Ann to hide it somewhere that he wouldn't know as that's what they always do =P

Then we had the auction scene, which was quite reminscient to the GRC scene, along with the one with Wooton and Victoria. For once Ann played a useful role and gave Jason some information, so she's better than Wooton, just by that. SORRY, WOOTON. OR NOT. The conversation Jason had with Lord Brownlow was an interesting one, especially after Jason had to untie the poor driver at the end. I immediately felt suspicious of the Lord, and for hopefully obvious reasons. The US President? Niiiice. Now, I was just thinking, because this is fictional and all, how does this relate to real life? I mean, President Obama never went over there. .and nothing like this ever happened, so how far to the edge of fiction does Odyssey push it all? 

Up to this point, I wasn't all that impressed with the episodes. .besides the accents :P It still seemed somewhat childish, but it took a turn starting with the toxic chemical spills. SOUND THE ALARM! IT'S TIME! Jason initiates the Alamo, and one of the best scenes (second only to the next-to-last scene of Episode 3) happens right there. The Alamo ended in tragedy. .just like this could. And Jason agrees. I died right then. .and chewed more fingernails. (As I type this, all my fingernails are gone :P I ate them all *coughs*) 

And he's off to the hospital, and once more Sue saves the day. .I do wonder what had happened before in the hospital, though. Nothing good though. And then, BOO! Agent Billings! AW YEAH. WE HAVE A SCUFFLE! #winner There was none of this in GRC. .we really need this :P And then we learn all about Koflax. .which reminds me just a little bit about Ruku. Everything starts to fall in place now, and the climax (sort of) begins. Billings leaves, Sue comes up to Jason and tells him she's sorry. Now, in retrospect, I wonder. She said she was sorry, twice here. Could it be that she began to feel guilty when she saw him then and apologized later? *shrugs*

Now for the final scene of this episode! We finally meet *drum roll* MISTERRRRR GRRROOTTEEEEE. And to be frank. .he didn't impress me much :P His first line was okay, but after that. .he was *not* that impressive. His voice just tuned me off. I WILL give him credit because he kept his cool despite everything Jason said--smart cookie, that Jason. And then the conclusion: Use whatever methods you need to get the truth. My goodness. EPIC WIN. This got better and better. .

Okay. That ended up being long. And there's another episode. BUT WORK CALLS. SO! If at least someone says something, I shall try to write the conclusion. I know, it wasn't sarcastic, really. .but I HAVE REASON, OKAY? 

To end this all off, here is some of the background music I was listening to while working:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKqjz8ZHU6c

Yes, foreign music. There was Danish, Dutch, and Japanese as well. ENJOY.

The Deep End

February 23, 2012

The final episode summaries for Album 55 have been revealed! Something Old, Something New I and II are the last two.

Penny brainstorms ways to promote Connie's wedding planning business and one of her schemes dramatically backfires. Meanwhile, Matthew and Emily investigate a woman who may be trying to scam Jacque Henri.

So Penny again? I can't say I'm that excited about her, but I'll manage. And Jacque Henri. .I'll be frank. He annoys me. With his over-exaggerated French accent, he gets on my nerves. I know native French people, and they sound nothing like him. 

Anyway! I just realized we have a 4-parter, 2 3-parters, and one 2-parter episode, leaving us with only 2 normal length episodes. That will be most interesting. I'm anxious to listen to The Labyrinth. I haven't listened to the first episode, but I already know who comes back. Yes, I spoiled it. On purpose. 

The episodes are now available for download, but like many, I'll be waiting =P I can keep my self-control, and I really don't have that much of an urge to listen to it (which is not to say that I wouldn't take it if someone gave it to me!)

Now, The Hunger Games movies, on the other hand. . .

Yes, MAINE, this was for you :P (I also downloaded a movie shot of Peeta, and it's my wallpaper xD)
