milleniumgypsy: (Marvel Loki restore to "glory")
I really meant to work on my sculpt tonight but I ended up feeling rather under the weather instead. Bleh.

But I did watch some tv! I wrote out my thoughts about the shows, put under cuts just in case. :3
Helix I actually watched last night.
I thought it was interesting to finally find out what they were talking about with the White Room. Scottie totally called it that the outside was what they were talking about. xD
Me and Scottie were both amused that Dr. Farragut just used a compass to get back to the line. Take that traitor military dude!
I'm assuming Dr. IVIT's head is alive somehow, since they went through the trouble of showing us that the frozen monkeys were alive since they were screaming when they were set on fire.
Not sure yet what Dr. Hatake's play is yet, looking forward to seeing what he's up to.

(I realize that's a SHIELD quote, but I don't think Helix has been terribly quotable. And well, monkeys?)

All the love for Agents of SHIELD!
I was so amused by Stan Lee's appearance in the show! That was awesome. Scottie said that might have been his longest speaking cameo, and he might be right. xD I figured he had to show up at some point!

Poor Simmons lol. I excel at prep but I am awful at improv so look at my extremely detailed backstory! Don't you want to know what marine life we looked at? *pout*
I can sort of feel for her though. I tend to over-prep everything, though I don't think I'm as bad with improv.
I was excited that Mike's character was finally revealed (as Deathlok)!
I was so amused by Coulson and Ward trying to work the holotable.
Agent May is as always a badass. xD I was also amused by this scene:
May: Oh yeah I totally told Coulson about us *flings self out of train window*
Ward: Wait wut?!

I am so looking forward to next week! Lorelai and Sif! I mean, it's not Loki, but it's still Asgardian. And Lorelai is the little sister of the Enchantress, which is pretty awesome. xD


Face-Off
I'm not sure what to say about this episode. I think the seed for the show (the guitars) was a bit hard for the artists to really get their heads around. At least that's what I'm assuming. I didn't really like anyone's look very much. I really liked the idea of the 2nd place makeup with the clear chestplate with the ribs and heart and things underneath. I was most struck by the abstract guitar makeup that won, but I wasn't entirely sold on the concept. It was a bit wierd.
I was a bit unsure about it because it didn't really say guitar in any way. I also liked it better than the others because they didn't have a set of guitar neck horns like so many others. I guess I prefered the too abstract over the too literal.
I was surprised that the angular red makeup ended up on the bottom. I didn't think it was great but there were probably other's I'd have picked instead. Not that I'd have picked it to win either, but I thought it was more of a middling look.
I wasn't surprised at all that the rockabilly makeup ended up on the bottom, especially after the horn fell off during inspection. She had to know that she was going home at that point. I feel for the girl because she was clearly having issues and anxiety sucks, but you still need to be able to get the work done regardless.
Anyway, a sort of meh episode this week, which is disappointing.

This gif of Hiddles playing the guitar is more satisfying than the guitar episode of Face-Off to me
hiddles guitar

I'm mostly caught up on tv so far, though I still need to watch the last episode of Lost Girl.

I miss watching Face Off, but frankly the judges ruin it for me every time. Every episode, I would feel utterly baffled by their choices. Too frustrating =/

Huh, that's rather interesting!
I think I usually am pretty in tune to the judges thoughts (a lot of the time me or Scottie say something before judging, and then the judges say it and we're like YES YOU SEE IT TOO), but not always. Generally even if we don't agree though we can see where they're coming from at least.
Sorry that the judging makes the show not enjoyable to you though! I wish you could still watch it too, then I could even chat with you about it. n_n'

Maybe next season we will give it a shot again and then we can chat about it :) It's been a while, so I don't remember exactly what our complaints were, but one thing I remember is that they would often have these ridiculous abstract themes... and then they'd either pick the best ones regardless of how well they applied to the theme, or they'd do the complete opposite and pick the ONLY one that did something related to the theme, regardless of how good it was.

And their gripes often seemed to be about things that we felt were absurdly trivial. Like one season they sent a guy home because every time he did a character he had what they felt was the same nose. Yeah, okay, let's just completely ignore EVERYTHING ELSE and focus on his nose.

But it might just be a problem I have with panel-judging shows lol. I'm the same way with Design Star. I absolutely LOATHE one of the judges and I have stopped watching the show because of it. Even though interior design is my ~thing.~ He has no imagination whatsoever and can't see outside his own box of what he considers good design to be. It's infuriating.

ehehehe, that's amazing! "Didn't I kill him?" "Yeah... but comic books" xD So true, and especially considering Loki's history that is even more amusing.

THAT COSPLAY IS AMAZING OMG.

I know, right? XD

That cosplay is just...OMG. How long did that take?!

I really liked that ep of SHIELD (okay, so I love almost every ep). Simmons was so adorable with her over-prep (the prostitutes lol). LOL @ little Fitz with his American accent (I wondered where they were going with that convo because I read an interview recently that said the actor who plays Fitz supposedly can't do a 'convincing British accent'). Did May steal her outfit from Natasha?!? She is SO AWESOME. Stan Lee makes everything more awesome. DEATHLOK DEATHLOK DEATHLOK...that is all ;)

I love all the episodes of SHIELD too. xD
I loved her story too! Prostitutes? Plural?! lol xD
I was so amused by Simmons and his American accent, and also his request for large portions of food for reasonable prices. xD He was waaaay better than Skye with accents lol.
ehehehe, I thought of Natasha's outfit too! And she was totally badass.
I'm always excited by the introduction of more Marvel characters! :D
