[Series] Castlevania

Title: Castlevania
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Action, Adventure
Based on: Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse
Directed: Sam Deats
Country: United States
Language: English

A brave and smart woman named Lisa captures the dark lord’s, Dracula’s heart, from the moment she dared to knock on his castle door, asking for knowledge on medicine, so she could heal people. They end up teaching each other, of medicine, humanity, and what it is to be a mortal man. After a while Lisa manages to persuade Dracula to go, and see the world for himself, see it as mortals do. Yet this transformative journey becomes a tragedy worthy of an apocalypse he swears to bring upon mankind. For in his absence, ignorant masses, led by a fool priest who’d not know God’s will if it slapped him in the face, capture Lisa, and burn her at stake as a witch.

Belmont family is disgraced and hated. They were once famous monster hunters. For all his current worth, Trevor Belmont is still of kind heart, and good skill. A skill he, and everyone who hated his family too, their name, will soon dearly want and need. For, you can imagine, The Dark Prince has kept his word to open the gates of hell upon Earth.

I loved it enough to watch it twice in one night. The fact that this season is made out of four episodes that add up to less than two hours of content, did help too. The jokes, if a bit oddly executed, were funny. And you really don’t need any previous knowledge on the games. The old ones are 2D side-scrollers, you need emulators for those, or those old consoles, and likely adapters for your nice new TV’s, and maybe a 6 year old, because I tried, and I couldn’t pass the very first boss. The newer ones, the proper ones that you can get on Steam – I don’t know whether there’s any relation to this story in them.

Anyway, loved it. And not just because of Dracula.

Summary: 02-08

This week just up and disappeared, I tell you. I don’t even know what really happened, other than me being drowned in work, and some people making fools of themselves. Well, let’s see anyway:

  • I finished second season of Lucifer on Netflix, currently here it’s the last one, tho some people already have the third one.
  • Second book of Witcher was re-printed, but right now I’ve nothing to spare, so I’ll kindly wait. Yet I am looking forward to the trip to the local bookstore to get it!
  • Pulled a muscle, and it hurts like hell.
  • Tidied up more of my crafting supplies, and made a gorgeous little thing with a dragon on it.
  • Got through a week of Inktober successfully, and am pretty sure I’ll do NaNoWriMo, tho I’m really not sure if I’ll make it public.
  • It’s cold, wet, and rainy out here, and I’m not happy about it at all. Mum is catching a cold. She had a biopsy on Tuesday, but we don’t know the results yet.
  • I’m almost in the 90s of read books this year, I think I’m hitting my records by the end of the year.
  • Watched “Unfriended” and I’m pretty sure that was the worst crap I have ever seen. But then I read “Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep”, and I loved it, so it fixed my mood a bit.
  • I’m wearing two pairs of socks, and am cold.

[Web Series] Buddy System | S1

Rhett and Link’s “Buddy System” (Season 1)
Genre: Comedy, Adventure
Directed: John Fortenberry
Country: United States
Language: English

I’m a long term fan of Rhett and Link. I love their simple humor, terrible adventures with food, and silly misunderstandings. So when they announced they’re making a series, I was stoked. But it took me a while to actually watch them, all thanks to the location I’m in, so, yeah, I’m a bit late, but this was so good, people!

One day, post work, after the adventures they got into due to new found confidence of their shirts tucked into their underwear (watch the first episode, it’s free), Rhett and Link find themselves in a lot of trouble. Link lost his phone, and it ended up in the hands of their evil ex. Yes, both of their ex. And this innovative queen of infomercials is tarnishing their good name on Good Mythical Morning! Even other YouTubers noticed, and started bashing Rhett and Link: how could they have sold out this badly? Do they not care about their loving fans at all?

So Rhett and Link get onto the quest of getting Link’s phone back, getting their channel back, restoring their good names, and just, in general, fixing this bad, bad mess. While on it, they’ll get into the rabbit holes of finding their inner selves, fight evil beings, witness real magic in action, fight in a roller blader vs roller skater war, and entertain us with many great musical bits.

This was even better than I hoped for. I laughed, I jammed to good beats, and I did not expect THAT! There were awesome guest stars, and great people on set. Only the highest ratings from me.

5/5

Summary: 25-01

Okay, so, since it was far easier to write everything down in bulletin form, I think we’ll try that again, okay? Can’t say that a lot happened, but hey, that’s due to all the work I had, which, in itself, is a good thing:

  • Elder Scrolls Online began new season of the treasure boxes, didn’t get anything good in them, but I don’t mind, they’re nice anyway.
  • Cleaned my closet nice and proper. Found a little hook to keep my shirts a bit straighter. I mean the ones I wear constantly, and so they don’t get their closet-time.
  • Finished four paintings. Two with panda’s, one with prince Laurent of Vere. Yep. That’s happening again.
  • Re-listened to first two books of Captive Prince, and gone through such long-term to-reads as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and Hemlock Grove (yes, the book is better than the series).
  • Friend got me a physical copy of this old Dracula game. I have it on steam, but I collect all things Dracula, so this is great!
  • Finished up Mabon sale, it was pretty great, I hope everyone will like their presents. Also made one jewelry piece to a friend in general, because, apparently, sometimes some things just are right for one person, and no one else, so I had to.
  • Started Inktober! Because it’s just one little step between “One Day” and “Day One“.
  • Watched Rhett and Link’s “Buddy System” at last, and it was everything I could’ve wanted!
  • Finished season 6 of Game of Thrones, and season 2 of Strain. It’s “okay” and “meh“.

Work? Do you want to know even? Translated 4 contracts, 3 manuals, and started the project “when you can’t figure out what PC means from context: it could mean this“, because editing people’s works is the worst part of my job.

[Movie] Okja

Directed: Bong Joon-ho
Release Date: 2017
Country: South Korea; United States
Language: Korean, English

Lucy Mirando is determined to turn the evil-looking face of the company around. She’s not like her controversial grandfather. And she’s not like her cruel sister. She’s an innovator. She’ll change the meat industry!

Ten years ago a super pig was developed. It eats less, excretes less, creates far smaller eco-footprint, and best of all – tastes great. Twenty six best super pigs were passed around to owners all over the world for a decade, after which the winner will be picked. Now, whether they did it to promote the pigs, or to find the best climate for the pigs to grow is a question no one will ask…

Mija and her grandfather raised Okja into a wonderful, mighty friendly beast, and, naturally, ten years later, they were victorious. Mija agreed with her grandfather, that they will ask to keep the pig, instead of taking the reward, but nobody wanted to hear that. Even her grandfather wasn’t much keen, when he could have the dowry for the girl to marry good instead. So they take the super pig away, into far less friendly hands than one could’ve thought. And Mija, taking all her tiny possessions in this world, runs away, to Seoul, to find her friend. Lucky for the girl, she’s not the only one who doesn’t want to see these wonderful animals (or any, for that matter), get slaughtered.

This movie will hit all of your feels, and it will hurt. But it’s a happy-ending (mostly) movie, so bear with it. Honestly, it was so beautiful, it felt like watching a very high-quality Ghibli live action movie, and I definitely recommend Okja to anyone who ever liked Ghibli stuff.

Promo: Peter Monn

I found Peter via friend bookie. She recommended me his book channel on YouTube (BookTube), called “Peter Likes Books“, and I don’t even remember what was the first video I watched, but I was hooked ever since.

For one, the man has kind charm, kind being the keyword here. That, I believe, the kindness, is the most important trait a human being can have. And Peter is always smiling, laughing, doing funny things, and is not afraid to laugh at his own expense. That would be the second most important trait a human being should have: not taking yourself too seriously. The third one is obvious: Peter likes to read books.

He doesn’t read much, but enjoys every book, and talks a lot about them. He does tags, and is not afraid to say outright – books are expensive, I don’t understand how people do hauls so often, some books are not even worth the money. And I agree with him completely. So, all in all, his book channel is great, but that’s not all, if all in all.

I soon started following him on all of his other channels, for his personality just won me over, and must say, his vlogs are great. That’s the place where you’ll get to know Peter, for he is as open, as a book. He’s not afraid to talk about things, and on his ride home, to work, or wherever, he shares his day: what they’ve done with his husband, what they did with his friends, how his dogs are doing, what he’s reading, how’s work, and so on. He’s a complex person who won many a battle against inner demons, and it’s hard to not love him. But hey, go see for yourself:
