A departure of sorts

Posted 27th June 2011 at 02:04 PM by Talera

It is days like today I hate my job. Well to phrase it better I donít hate my job, I hate some of the things Iím exposed to.

Normally I love my job, even with all the frustrations. While I get exposed to negative things, it still interests me. While many would find those exposures upsetting or tragic, I tend to be able to distance myself from them and deal with the task at hand.

Occasionally I have the days where the Ďthingí Iím exposed to is so tragic not even I can...

Talera vs Advent Children

Posted 15th June 2011 at 12:49 PM by Talera

So on the weekend I watched Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. It should be noted I watched the 2005 version and not the revised edition which had more information inserted for people who havenít played the game.

I was looking forward to this as I found the game play frustrating. The thing I found most enticing about the Final Fantasy games was actually the storyline/plot. The concept of having it purely that and with gorgeous animation was something I looked forward to.

Talera vs Assault on Precinct 13

Posted 6th June 2011 at 02:14 PM by Talera

I think this review may cause some people to wonder what Iím on, or want to hate me for things Iím saying.

I know this movie came out yonkers ago, but I only got around to seeing it last night. Currently Iím on two minds about whether I should have bothered.

Ethan Hawke, good actor, pinnacle in my opinion was Gattaca and to be honest since he split with his wife, he looks more and more washed out (but I do acknowledge some good movies in that time). Which of course...

Talera vs Mock Songs

Posted 3rd June 2011 at 09:28 AM by Talera

One of my weird habits is changing lyrics. Iím no Weird Al, donít get me wrong, but I can be talking with friends and then just suddenly come up with a song in my head appropriate to the topic. Iím not very good at it, but it has scored me amusement points in groups previously. It has also scored me comments like Ďmum, sing the real words pleaseí.




I have plenty of ones done at home for various themes, my tribute to Friday the 13th was one I got asked to pass

Talera vs Supernatural

Posted 31st May 2011 at 05:40 PM by Talera

I watch Supernatural. Loved it from the first episode and watch it religiously. I can even tell you which episodes made me laugh my patootie off and which ones were a bit shocking. I can tell you the last episode of season 6 made me say ďOh my godĒ out loud (but I wonít say why Ė spoilers and all).

I converted someone else to it this year, not realising I had not converted all my friends. I got into a discussion with him and I realised part of the reason I liked it. It is not a horror...
