One of those days

Full steam ahead and storytelling be damned!

I'm starting to think FMA: Brotherhood should be renamed FMA: Abridged. Stop rushing through the goddam story! And stop leaving out important pieces!! What makes it so aggravating is that when they do step back from the fast-forward button and take the time to actually tell the story they do a really, really good job. Such as episodes 5, 8, 9, and 10. But then they rushthoughtheotherssofastyoucan'tbreathe, and it's a huge disappointment.

I dreamed the simulcast went down again because Funimation got fed up with the fansubbers, so I had to check this morning. It reminded me of my irritation with the last three episodes. Rush Valley was a disappointment. Yock Island wasn't bad, but now it looks like Izumi really did endanger their lives. Greed and the Devil's Nest - all I can say is the impression of "OMGwemustgetthroughthishurryhurry!" and why should we care about Yoki if we've never seen him before? They also left out an important piece, but I'll leave off on that until I see how they compensate for it in the next episode.

Goddam you, Brotherhood, why do you keep insisting on throwing out crap...

Social networking

I'm now on both LinkedIn and Twitter - though not connected to very many people yet on either one (like, any). I dunno how much or for what I'll be using Twitter, I mostly got on it so I could follow other people. But it's there.

Other than that, I've been working on my resume today - I hate writing resumes :P
