Damn, that's all dirty-like!
Things are much better now that I've had a chance to finally have a talk with suitboyskin, who has been incommunicado for the past few days. It was quite a productive talk, actually. The eye-to-eye aspect that characterized the original collaboration on Ecology is still there. Although the structure is staying the same, we are working on streamlining the script and making the storytelling process smoother. We had the chance to slightly deepen one of the main characters as well. Work on Ecology is hampered by the fact that poor old Suit can't access the internet at the moment, which included the multipage e-mail I sent him last week.
All Around the Town...
Furthermore, no sooner had I posted a comment about how the West Side wasn't so horrible because of my lackadaisical foreman and the presence of legions of cats that the very same foreman pages me, asking if I would be interested in transferring to the East Side. I replied in the affirmative. Good thing, too, as I was sent to do a job over by Hell's Kitchen. While the repair itself was a breeze (there was nothing wrong with the circuit), the area I had to traverse to get there was disgusting. Empty wrecks of buildings, vacant lots, trash all over the place, a recessed doorway somebody had taken a very loose shit against, buildings that you can tell the copper in is green even before you get there... yeah, give me the professional East Side any day.
On the other hand, I also have to say that this week went by really fast. I can't believe it's Friday already.
We hope you're helpless
Next week Angel Season 5 comes out on DVD. I am pretty excited about it, although I am only at the end of Season 2 in my re-watching. I can reasonably expect to be somewhere along the line in Season 3 by then, but nowhere near Season 5... can I contain my enthusiasm and finish Seasons 3 and 4 before embarking on the all-new Season 5? Only time will tell.
I had forgotten how good Season 2 was, especially because the in re-watching the first season, I was kind of amused by how "television"-y it was, if that makes any sense. It's very enjoyable, but the really substance of the series begins in Season 2, and I was floored by how well it plays out on repeat viewings.
The last disc of Season 2 is the Pylea storyline, which is great fun in its own right, but is the show kind of letting its hair down from the intense melodrama of Season 2, and the deep breath before the plunge of the insane developments that would characterize Seasons 3 and 4. I'm really looking forward to seeing Holtz again (who, I noticed, is actually mentioned in Season 2, although he isn't seen).
You keep to yourself a lot and act cold towards
others, but you actually do mean well. You're a
detective and great at figuring things out. You
regret a lot of things and have had something
tragic in your life, whether it was running
over an animal with your car or something
major. You don't try to make friends, but they
always end up finding you anyway.
