talibusorabat: A man makes a confused face "I don't like where that's going" (Community: Where thats going)
I feel a weird kind of anxiety whenever I think about blogging again on Dreamwidth. What would I write about? I don't feel articulate enough to write about anything of interest, and my life is pretty dull.

I've been struggling with words overall for months now. I hardly RP anymore. The tags I write keep getting progressively shorter and shorter. The actual quality of my writing is steadily declining. Almost every time I go to write, my mind goes blank. Actually blank.

I'm not sure what the point of this is. Odds are good that I'm just going to post this and then vanish into the deep again — inarticulate keysmashing on plurk, reblogging things without commentary on Tumblr, saving articles on Pinboard. I'm not unhappy with life right now. But I guess I've lost the sense that I have anything worth saying.

I miss it.

Because not everybody reads Bleach for the endless battles and penis contests.

This episode was doing so well. SO WELL.

talibusorabat: Interesting - engaging or oh god oh god we're all gonna die... (Quote: Interesting)
Legend of Korra is definitely better watched with a friend. My roommate had missed the past two weeks, so we watched the last three episodes together and spent the entire time laughing about Verrick as Stephen Colbert. It was great.

But this week's episode...

talibusorabat: An older white man in a crown "So I've executed all the sorcerers...wait, there's Harry Potter." (Merlin: Harry Potter)
Honestly, my main thought about this episode?

SKY BISON BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They justified the existence of this episode. I mean, I liked the rest of the episode, but. Come on. Sky bison babies.

Real spoilers behind the cut )
21st-Sep-2013 10:47 am - Legend of Korra: Civil War pt 1
talibusorabat: Crystal Kay wears blue headphones and looks mischievous (Music: Crystal Kay mischief)
Now THAT'S what I'm talking about.

spoilers )

I had other thoughts, but I'm home with family for the weekend, so they've kind of flown out of my mind. But all in all, I enjoyed this episode a LOT more than the premiere, and I'm legitimately excited for next week.
talibusorabat: An animated older woman giving a "wtf?" shrug (Avatar: Korra da fuck?)
I still need to rewatch it... I think that I'll appreciate it more on the rewatch. There were a lot of things in book 1 that I hated at first and then ended up liking when I rewatched it. (Same goes for pretty much the entire third season of Avatar: The Last Airbender)

But as a first impression? I was pretty underwhelmed. spoilers )

Overall, my thoughts are: Thank God for fanfic. But I still can't wait for next week. Love is blind.
talibusorabat: A young cartoon woman gets ready to fight with fire (Avatar: Korra feel the fire)
Which is funny, because I never really throw up ever, even when sick. But that's how I'm feeling about the return of Legend of Korra on Friday.

I have such strong feelings about book 1....as do many other people. Happiness, excitement, anger, disappointment. I'm nervous about whether book 2 will fix some of the problems from book 1, or if it will just make more. I'm nervous about fandom's reaction too. I haven't been a proper part of a proper fandom since my early years in college; it's actually really scary, being around that much intense emotion, even if it's just words on a screen.

(And, yeah, I've developed a lot of headcanon about Korra during this past year that is going to get so very, very jossed.)

But. BUT. As scary as it is, I'm excited too. Because that trailer is gorgeous and spirits and Korra and Jinora and hope. There is always hope.

Now if only I had cable!!!! Come on, Amazon and/or iTunes! Let me preorder my season pass!

(Tangentially, am I the only one concerned about Korra being moved to Friday nights? My understanding is that's not a very good timeslot. Hopefully I'm wrong about that. I'd hate for the network to be trying to tank the series.)
