Slutopia!

Spezza! That's Spezza in the pilot episode of "The Mountain"! Did anyone see it? Didn't that ski lift operator guy who had about ten lines of dialogue look like Spezza? Down to the strange chin fuzz thing he has and that nose and... hmm, must check out the ears. Hmph. Conveniently, the guy has hair covering the top of his ears. Bah.

I'm playing this game that's like 5 years old called Anachronox, and it's a sci-fi RPG set in the future, and tonight I visited the red light district and there's this strip club called "Slutopia". Which is an excellent name for a strip club! Even if the strippers don't have four arms.

There were establishments *ahem* catering to various different alien races, and one of the races are these tiny creatures called Bipidris, that basically are kind of like the Doozers from Fraggle Rock. in that they're tiny, about six inches high? and are always constructing stuff. And as I was walking around, there were satisfied-looking Bipidris walking out of a tiny strip club and *trauma* And Bipidris doing lapdances for other alien races that are human-sized. *cries* Apparently Bipidri-human relations are frowned upon in the universe, and humans who have a thing for them are called "pidriphiles". Har! Oh, ugh. *trauma*

Oh yeah! Martian reminds me, "Veronica Mars" is good. The premise is that this girl's dad is a private detective, and she works for him part-time, doing surveillance and stuff, but there's also a big mystery that's hanging over their lives, her best friend was murdered and someone confessed, but there's doubt that he did it and not someone else. The only thing I don't like is that Veronica was raped at some point, and she was drugged so she was unconscious at the time it happened, but it still feels kind of icky, because Veronica doesn't seem to be very affected by it at all.

Yeah, I kind of went ^-o (and that's a raised eyebrow, not a wink) at that watching the pilot.

Jury is still out on the show, for me.

Did you recognize the father? C-- pegged him as one of the primary aliens in Galaxy Quest.

I'm trying to give the show the benefit of the doubt because aside from that part I really like it.

Oh! I watched that movie so along ago I don't remember. Hee, that must make it hard to take him seriously then. :P

I liked it, but in thinking about it after the fact, I was kind of thinking 'Gosh, she is too clever by half'. I'm not sure if I entirely like the idea of this teenager who can manipulate the fire department to steal evidence or who will ruin a court case for revenge purposes, or who seems to be able to manipulate her way out of about every situation put in front of her.

He is different enough that I'm not having a problem with that part, at least. :)

Yeah, all of that's terribly believable, isn't it? ;) At the same time, lots of other cop (or forensics) shows on TV do have unrealistically insightful characters, so why not a teenage one? :P

it would take more than hair to cover Spezza's ears!

Did you see Rescue Me? usually that kind of thing annoys me, but this one was well made I thought.

It was a generous amount of hair. :P

Oh, I haven't seen the latest episode yet. I need to catch up this weekend.

Dude, the story is so awesome. And the game is huge. I love FF7, and this is similar, but it also has Fallout-style humor. The world skill mini-games are very cool too!

Also, they went and edited all the cut scenes from the game, added some new music and sound effects, and made the whole thing into a movie.
