Now With 65% Less Emo!

After my little emo filled wall of text from the other day I decided that I wasn’t going to post anything more until after my birthday or until I had something useful to say (read: I found work). It seemed like a fine sentiment to live by but it’s kind of frustrating when your own website is your startup page and you keep sighing because the twat who runs it hasn’t updated the content and then you remember that it’s you. Okay, I know the reason is simply that I haven’t had anything to say but it still irks me. Hell, even the stupid memes that I usually get attracted to during these bouts of melancholy haven’t held much appeal this time around and I’ve really just been posting them out of habit rather than having any real conviction in the humourous nature of their content. Until now that is…

I have discovered one that I can wholeheartedly get behind and it has not only cheered me up a little, I managed to change the poll to coincide with it.

I challenge you all to find out what your viking name is! It’s fun, or my name isn’t

Your Viking Personality: You’re a doughty, stalwart Viking. You have a thirst for battle, and tend to strike first and think later. You’re not a “berserker”, but you’re among the toughest sane Vikings around.

You might grumble a bit at the lack of amenities on board a Viking longboat, but you can handle it. You possess some skills which other Vikings respect.

You have a fairly pragmatic attitude towards life, and tend not to expend effort in areas where it would be wasted. Other people tend to think of you as manipulative and conniving.

In other news, I watched BSG: Razor tonight on Space and I was a little disappointed. It was fun and all just for being BSG but it didn’t satisfy me. I liked seeing more of the old toasters and ships and hearing “By Your Command” again but the story itself lacked in my opinion. I never really cared for Admiral Cain when she was in the show to begin with so more of her and her “maverick” crew wasn’t something I was looking forward to. Even the brief glimpses of the rest of the fleet just didn’t sit well with me though so it wasn’t just her.

I found the flashbacks to be muddy and they always seemed to be placed at the wrong point and managed to break up the tempo of the story each and every time. Irritating to say the least. I suspect I would’ve preferred either a wholly flashbacked episode without any reference to the current arc (though with my distaste for Cain — which I’m sure is shared — I can’t seeing that one being popular) or one that was just bookended by current events and told the story in one piece.

Meh! what do I know. I still haven’t even finished watching Season 3 yet. Maybe it’ll all make sense and I’ll “see the light” then but right now I think I’m going to go and watch the Children in Need Doctor Who Special again. I got more sheer joy out of the 8 minutes of it than the 2 hours of BSG.

Oh yeah… I suppose I need to change the poll again like I said I would…


Et Voila! Enjoy
