I Already Don't Like You™. Pretty Sure The Message Was Clear. I ALREADY DON'T LIKE YOUGO AWAY

So I’m reading the latest episode review of "Human Target" on A.V. club, and found myself yelling in agreement at every criticism they had for this episode, and well, the entire second season to date.

If you haven’t seen an episode of this show, take my word that season one was the $#%!. Great action, great writing, and well rounded cast (Mark Valley, Chi McBride, and Jackie Early Haley). It was a great formula that seemed to be like a full action movie every episode with music orchestrated by the ever talented Bear McCreary (He did all the music for the recently ended Battlestar Galactica).

Then, some suit decided that “hey this show is so awesome, lets #%*! with it and try make some more money!”

"Yea Demographics!"

"Synergy!"

"Buzzwords!"

"Money!"

They dropped McCreary and his beautiful intro music, remixed it with some generic crap rock and added two “Scrappy Doos” in the form of two extremely obnoxious, unnecessary female castmates (character names Pucci and Ames). They ruined the dynamic, chemistry, “magic” the show seemed to build up last season while simultaneously making the episodes about them. Ever since then, about 90% of everyone (including women viewers as well) who watch that show discuss the awesome ways these characters will and should die. But alas, they don’t. Each week they come back much to the dismay of everyone…EVERYONE.

I keep watching this show hoping that a dramatic plot twist will bring my show back, but unfortunately, after this episode, it seems like they’re cementing the lady folks’ position on the show.

Watch season one and somehow pass the current of season two down your gullet and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Here is a quote from the article summing up my overly expressed feelings:

The original conception of the series, clumsy though it often was, had a solid core: the Chance/Winston/Guerrero dynamic made sense, and the melancholy loneliness in all three characters helped drive them and kept them together. That core is gone; what’s left is a shambling mess of contrivance and regurgitation. It’s not even awful enough to be interesting. It’s just sort of… there.

I’m sorry for going all fanboy, I feel I needed to get this off my chest. Anyone at all agree?

How About That of the Day: Filmmaker and Newsweek video producer K. Ryan Jones was one of 9,078 lucky lottery winners who netted a cool $150 in last night’s mega MegaMillions drawing by playing Hurley’s numbers.
He explains:

Yep, Sarah and I just won $150 because we got 3 numbers and the Mega Ball! The winning numbers were 4 - 8 - 15 - 25 - 47 and a mega ball of 42. Do the numbers we chose look familiar? That’s right, they’re from LOST! Nerdy? Sure. But am I rich now because of that nerdiness? Kinda.
I hope I’ve read the rules correctly. If I haven’t actually won anything, I’m going to have to return all the concubines I just ordered.

CUUUUUUUUUUURSED! Hurley disapproves.

So, my posting as of late has been a little light due to the holidays and well, completely overhauling my blog. It’s been a long process, but I am finally at a place that I’m ready to share my new theme/design with the outside world. Take a look around if you got a second. It’s pretty straight forward, but I did rearrange some things.

A minor yet big change I made was I included sourcing & reblogging attribution at the bottom of each post, so now it’s consistent across all my blog entries. By the way, tumblr really needs to regularly update & maintain their theme documentation because I had to go back on the staff blog to find the conditional blocks & tags for content attribution. BTW, it’s right here for future reference.

Oh wow, someone's actually reading this? OK, this is happening. My name is Alex and I'm a designer with slight anti-social tendencies. I'm black, live in the DFW metroplex, work at an ad agency, and drink alone in the dark on week nights. While being black, I write this blog as a creative outlet when not starting flame wars over the best episode of Battlestar Galactica (Gaeta's Uprising or The Final Five Revelation of course). I share interactive & design inspiration, the latest in pop culture, movies, and general nerdery.

I am currently unmarried and live alone. I make egg sandwiches and have no pets. I like eating tacos with no pants as well.
