How do you feel when an adapted film's story deviates from the original material?
<lame>I dunno, because pathvain_aelien is usually the only one to notice.</lame>

I love that icon - I finally watched "Hush" the other night, and you're right - it's a wonderfully creepy episode. :)

In terms of the writer's block question - for me it depends partly on whether the film was good in and of itself and partly on how much I love the source material beforehand...

Yeah, in a striking coincidence, after I answered this question P_A happened to mention how people apparently hate the movie The Last Airbender or Airbender: The Last Airbender (or whatever they had to call the movie because of Avatar already being an unrelated movie) because it's a lot different from the TV show, but that she hadn't seen the show so she wouldn't know what's different about the movie.

This also reminds me of how even though people tend to hate the Super Mario Bros. movie because it deviates from the games a lot, I think I'd still like to see it.

Did you just call me lame?

No, I was calling myself lame for not being able to notice when a movie deviates from its source. And also because, for two Writer's Blocks in a row, a random LJ user has questioned my reasoning, so I'm insulting myself before they can insult me. :P

cannedpopcorn the first time. I deleted the comment the second time, but it was by nintfjr.

Nobody has so far this time, though.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
