An interesting dance routine for the launch of various PR games, most notably the Samurai game for the wii, as well as also promoting the show's episodes are all on Netflix. That said, the show having over 700 episodes is causing their apps to shit themselves, since they don't understand how a show can be that long. It's going to be split up into season chunks to make sure it stops.

So yeah. Interesting, though a few thoughts.

* Probably needed more rehearsal time. Some of the choreography was off, and Mystic Yellow just looks lost at the beginning there. That said, they most likely had very little time to get it done- Saban doesn't like the expense that goes along with actual planning.
* There are two Wild Force Yellow rangers (you can recognise WF by the diagonal stripes going from the neck to the right shoulder and the badge on the left breast). Making one a male costume doesn't really make much difference.
* What's going on with Mystic Red's visor? That's the one in the middle front for most of the time. It looks like it was broken... and replaced with the wrong design.
* White Drago Ranger (left row, white with black spikes along the sides) has gotten really fat.
* Saban is promoting the show... something that is relieving after so many years of Disney treating it like a red headed stepchild.
* And finally... there being this many good quality suits of past seasons available in the US means... original fight footage for the Gokaiger adaptation? I can only dream...

OK, so in March I had a tattoo done. It is a tattoo of an ouroboros, which symbolises infinity and cycles. The design was an amalgam of several drawings I got off the internet, I took them to the artist and she came up with a great final design.

Video!

I have recently been uploading videos to my youtube account, and I realised that there are a bunch I haven't cross posted here. So I'm going to do just that. Here's my most recent video, giving a tour of my kegging setup.

Apparently I'm banned from posting on LJ news articles. I'm... not sure how that happened.

What comes up when I try to comment... weird.

In my first ever review, I review one of the best PR episodes out there, Dr K.

If you were to write your autobiography, what would be the title?

"Stop Reading my Fucking Diary"

Well, it looks like when I get back from my trip I will not only be Beer Convenor and Journal Editor, but I will also be Secretary for my brewing club. I'm... going to try to convince someone else to take the Journal off my hands, it might get to be a bit much to juggle all of this.

I recently acquired a copy of Pinnacle Studio Ultimate 14 HD (guys, I think you could add 'collection' super' and 'premium' to the title as well), and I'm playing around with it. My first thoughts: it's nice. There's a lot to do with it- there's a lot of fun things that I can play around with, like all sorts of wipes, green screen, and the like. My main complaint so far is just how loooooong it takes to render a file. On the plus side, the 'guided tour' is largely unnecessary because the layout is so incredibly intuitive. But hey, a full review I'm sure will be coming eventually. Maybe in video form!

And my attention turns to Applle. I recently bought some new earbuds for my ipod. The other ones died very dramatically and so I decided to buy new ones. In the past I have always defended the somewhat higher price for Apple earbuds because they were quite good. The sound is quite good for earbuds in their price range, and they are comfortable (quite important!).

BUT these new ones have terrible sound. They are the ones that also have the microphone built in, and just... no. The bass response is poor, forcing me to up the bass on the EQ. The only reason you should ever use EQ on a stereo is to compensate for poor speakers. It's the reason why I have to do so for these earbuds. Ugh. I'm probably going to forget I have EQ on and when I plug my Sennheisers and wonder why the sound on the album is so dark. grr.
