Welcome, September. I for one will be glad to see summer go. It's going out like a lion rather than a lamb--the monsoons--but "bye bye."

I tend to hibernate in summer, and this one was no different in that respect. We also got mega busy at work in the past month or so, and I have veered between long days at work and sleep. OTOH, I found out recently I will lose a week's accumulated vacation if I don't take it before mid-November. So I will have 5-6 three-day weekends in the next month and a half. Can't say I mind. I was saving up days for next year's Australia trip and possible days off due to my back procedures, and have not nearly had enough days off.

Watched Season 4 of OUAT when it came to Netflix. Still poorly executed, but it makes more sense the second time through when you know they aren't throwing free will off the table.

Anyone seen the new Star Trek online movie, Renegades? I just started it. Planet and ship special effects are much better than 90's series, but the ship interiors and some of the characters look like amateur YouTube Trek. This despite it being a collaborative project of several Trek veteran actors.

GF and I are watching Farscape. First time for her, second time for me. Enjoying it more the second time around. I guess seeing it before changes my expectations for it.

In writing news, I sidelined the novel I've been working on for the past few years because it was spinning out of control and not getting finished. Started a short story in a writing class that has now turned into a novella. How does this happen to me? Plan: learn the art of plotting for brevity.

The X-Files Season 6 still remains the best-written season of the show. I am thinking especially of the stand-alones. One brilliant episode after another. So not the kind of thing you can play with the sound off while you're trying to concentrate on writing.


In the meantime, OUAT continues to have homework. I suppose the more seasons it gets, the more true that will be.

Am I the only one who had Lindsey McDonald flashbacks during last night's OUAT?

OAUT: Still watching, still commenting on friend's reviews. But I am not particularly invested in the Frozen storyline. And Emma/Hook: DO NOT WANT. Hook was way more interesting before he was ret-conned to be Emma's love interest. Curious to see where they will go with Regina's dilemma, Regina/Henry, Emma/Henry, Regina/Emma.

Also watching: Gotham, CSI, Criminal Minds, Vampire Diaries, Grimm, Stalker, Manhattan, Forever, The 100.

Word to the wise about Forever. This show will doubtless be canceled. Too many people will go into it thinking "Highlander," and compared to Duncan McLeod, the main character Henry comes across like a Poncy!Wanker!Sherlock Holmes.

Gave up on: Sleepy Hollow. I like crack as much as the next person, but it's not my brand of crack. I'm more a season-2-of-Lost cracker.

Might give up on: Gotham. I just have a visceral distaste for corruption, even if the point is to play it up so they can then show Jim Gordon fighting it. Might give up on The 100 if it's just more Lord-of-the-Flies teenaged moral ambiguity. And Vampire Diaries remains that show I watch and then ask myself, "Why oh why am I wading through this thigh-high histrionic crap again?" Yet like an automobile accident, I keep staring at it.


Manhattan is my favorite currently-airing show. I mean, dude, Scientists! Even if their end game is horrific, the narrative acknowledges this. We see the divide between the nerdy puzzle-solving and angst-ridden rumination. And the metaphors! The "toxic" atmosphere created by putting security above scientific collaboration, the fact that implosion will only work when disparate elements of the scientific teams "come together" against the dysfunctional compartmentalization.

The one thing I wish they'd do more of is feature actual historical scientists, not just their fictionalized ones. Oppenheimer is a ghost on this show, rarely seen, obliquely referred to, rather than depicted as a hands-on scientist. And I am hoping that at some point, Edward O. Teller shows up. He was kind of a hawkish nut-ball (allegedly the inspiration for Doctor Strangelove?), but with this show featuring the families so heavily, he'll doubtless roll into town with his wife and infant son, Paul, who was my dissertation advisor in graduate school fifty years later. Yes, I am two degrees of separation from the bomb.

Looking forward to the return of Grimm. This show has one of the crackiest arcs (and, well, basic premise) ever, but the characters are great. Okay, Nick and Juliet are a little dull, individually and together, but everyone else is fun.


And some day to return: Orphan Black, Orange is the New Black, The Americans...

(1) I am reading stuff. But it's all trashy true crime, so, we'll skip that part.

(2) I had the stomach flu over the weekend and still feel crappy.

(3) Nevertheless, I climbed up on my roof on Sunday and cleaned off all the pine needles so roofers could come and give me a bid on resealing the flat part of my roof. Bid was humongous. *croak*

(4) We are moving to a new building at work on Friday. This will in no way be TOTAL CHAOS (/ sarcasm)

(5) I am taking an online writing class through a local community college. It is a LOT of work. Between that and the constant dental appointments (root canal, crown prep, crown...) I am feeling a bit stretched. Which explains (2).

(6) Mars! NASA MAVEN and ISRO's (India) Mars Orbiter now circling the red planet. September has been a cool month at least in that regard.

(7) Not prepared for new TV season. Just don't know when I'll have the time for any of it. Planning on watching Disney's Frozen as homework this Saturday, though. When did TV start having homework?

(8) Friend visiting in a couple weeks for OctoberFest. I hope it feels like fall by then, 'cause it doesn't right now. September is, traditionally, still summer here, except for the early mornings, which finally begin to cool down. We've been known to have 100+ in early October. I am losing my tolerance for this *&^%.

In conclusion, chocolate.

Last of the pics. The Sculptor and I had the opportunity to head up to [personal profile] midnightsjane's farm and see her horses and the new house. Bonus trip to Fort Langley afterwards.

Thanks to [personal profile] midnightsjane for letting us visit!

Still pretty sure the forest area around Capilano Suspension Bridge is where they film forest scenes for OUAT and Highlander.

Steveston and Gastown sans fannish comparisons

With bonus Highlander.


Anyone who's watched OUAT, Highlander, X-Files, Continuum, or a dozen other made-in-Canada TV shows will recognize Gastown. It is the semi-gentrified "hip" neighborhood along the waterfront in downtown Vancouver. Like such neighborhoods in many cities, you can turn a corner and go from a trendy shopping area to a dodgy skid row. Most of the OUAT "Manhattan" scenes were filmed in the Alexander/Powell/Carrall street triangle.

masqthephlsphr: (Emma4)
During my vacation, I visited Storybrooke. Er, Steveston and Ft Langley, BC. Most of "Storybrooke" is located along Moncton and Bayview streets between Third Avenue and No 1 Road in Steveston. This quaint little Richmond area burg appears to have embraced its alternate identity (hey, tourist money!). Although filming had not yet started, some of the buildings retained their "Storybrooke" signage. Others were disconcertingly Steveston/Canadian.

Actually walking the street and seeing where everything is relative to everything else gives you a three-dimensional context when you go back to watch the show. In each new scene, you can orient yourself and say, "The characters are near X. Yep, there it is." It also makes you notice how often the show uses shipping pallets stacked against walls to hide the Steveston signs. ;)

Another thing you start to notice upon rewatch is when the same business is sometimes named one thing, sometimes named something else in different episodes. Perhaps the name changed in real life, or maybe they just didn't bother covering up the real name in early episodes.

On-screen and off-screen photos follow. Because I really am that geeky. Warning: Image heavy. All screencaps courtesy of screencapped.net.


A visit to Storybrooke )

This just in: apparently I have racked up a *&^%-load of roaming data charges on my Android tablet. I just assumed, as was the case in Holland/Germany/Switzerland, I would have no internet access on the tablet unless I was hooked up to a hotel's wifi. I still managed to get GPS in those countries, and nothing else, while out "roaming." This is not the case in Canada, so without a "data plan" for this fair country, I shudder to think of what my bill will be. AT&T has disconnected my data usage, and I can't get them on their 24/7 phone line "due to the holiday."

*checks calendar*

Yep, not the 4th anymore, guyz.

Anyway! Storybrooke, that all-American town, is in Canada, so international roaming applies. Both on tablets, and on foot. Yesterday, D, [personal profile] midnightsjane, and I headed down to Steveston. This little fishing village is worth a trip even if it didn't double as a familiar TV town. Very cute along the waterfront. We wandered down the main drag and saw Granny's Diner, Mr. Gold's shop, the Storybrooke bakery, the Storybrooke Pet Hospital, and the "library" (sans clock tower, of course). It was pretty non-crowded, being a Friday, which was good, but I was dismayed as we approached Mr. Gold's shop to see a big crowd in front of the store. I thought, "is this how it's going to be all these fans crowding things so we can't snap photos?"

It wasn't "fans", but no--it wasn't filming, either (which starts later this month). It was, however, the OUAT crew scoping out the set for some future episode. So that was fun.

More pics of Storybrooke later.

After our tour, we sat down for a yummy seafood chowder lunch, then headed back up to the city. We dropped Jane off at her place, then continued downtown. Our afternoon plan was to visit the Vancouver Art Gallery. That did not take up the entire afternoon, so we wandered back down to Gastown to give in to a few shopping impulses we'd managed to shake off earlier in the week. For only the second time on this trip, we got a spit of rain. It was mostly been sunny and beautiful this week.

Thanks MUCHLY to [personal profile] midnightsjane for being such a helpful, fun, and gracious host!

The bulk of our Wednesday was taken up with traveling. First, Nanaimo to Victoria to return our rental car, then a bus to Sidney to catch the ferry. From there, we caught the Tsawwassen ferry to Tsawwassen, BC (natch), then clambered back onto the bus again for the trip up to downtown Vancouver.

All of this is very scenic. We did not get the chance to see the Saanich peninsula by car while we were tooling around the island, so it was nice to travel through it on our way out of town. The ferry is a commuter ferry, so cars and busses drive right on--parking on the lower levels, shops and restaurants and seats on the upper levels. This ferry curves through several of the smaller islands off Vancouver Island, and the weather was great.

 photo DSCF3495_zps495469ff.jpg

At the bus station, we claimed our new rental car and drove into the wild and crazy streets of downtown Vancouver. We had some time to kill before our room was ready, so we headed out to wander a bit around Gastown, and found photo ops for several Highlander and OUAT filming spots as well as numerous souvenir shops all decked out in red and white.

The main event of the day, though, was meeting up with [personal profile] midnightsjane for pizza right in the heart of Gastown. Although dinner had a few awkward accompaniments (screeching freight cars on the nearby tracks, the restaurant playing "Jaws" on their television), the company more than made up for it.

masqthephlsphr: (trubel)
I realized May is half over and I have not updated my LJ. I'm around, I read my flist every day and respond to stuff that catches my eye. Work is still busy, and my novel second draft is progressing, and there's not a lot of variation in that schedule that's post-worthy. Plus, I'm just plain exhausted.

I am glad the regular television season is wrapping up, I was watching about a dozen shows and keeping pace with that is a source of aforementioned exhaustion. More or less liked OUAT's third season (season two is my favorite so far, I think), and enjoyed Grimm as well, especially the new recurring character, Trubel, who is many kinds of awesome. She could have walked off the pages of one of my own stories. I always have a screwed-up brunette tough-girl.

Things to look forward to for the summer: fresh cherries, Orange is the New Black s. 2, the new Dresden Files, and my trip to Seattle/Vancouver, BC at the end of June/beginning of July. Beyond that, I plan on hibernating with my writing. Summers have always, generally speaking, been just a stretch of time for me to endure.
masqthephlsphr: (masq)
I have not posted a real post in like, the longest time. I read my flist daily and hang around other people's LJs/DWs, but posting, not so much. Things have been kind of insane-busy of late.

(1) Work. Multiple projects. Colleagues on vacations at the exact wrong time.

(2) On a marathon draft of my novel. This will take a while. I have sort of accepted that. It's a complicated little bugger.

(3) Also attempting to write a few short stories. Totally different mindset than a novel. Trying to get into that mindset by reading other people's short stories. Science fiction, mostly. Got recs?

(4) Cooking. I have been doing some cooking. Gets me out of my writer's chair on Sundays. I have made some actually pretty yummy, healthy foods. And lost, like, five pounds in the process. Then stressed out big time (see 1 above), went on a sugar rampage, and gained it all back.

Hi, I'm Masq, and I am a sugar addict. No, really. Despite the OMG-yummy (healthy fats! healthy carbs! Vegetables with actual flavor!), my body Freaked Out against the healthy, and now I have to do that withdrawal thing all over again. But at least now I know what to expect when I go back to my new healthy way of eating. My sugar addiction weathered previous periods of weight loss because I was eating processed diet foods with all those hidden, processed sugars. Take those away, and you're left dangling above a very deep pit you never knew was there.

But back to the cooking part. Here's the things my momma never told me about cooking:
(a) when you cook something, it's never one serving. So all that effort actually goes into multiple meals.
(b) when you cook, you can eat anything you want. This may sound like a trivial truth. I'm a grownup, of course I can eat anything I want. But as a processed-food eating grownup, I was pretty much restricted to what someone else had decided to make and package. When you make it yourself, you are still at the mercy of stores to stock basic ingredients, but so far I've been able to find everything.
(5) Anyway. It's Spring. I don't breath. I don't sleep. I just watch the city roll up the sidewalks for the coming months of hibernation.

(6) There's ten gazillion good things on TeeVee right now. OUAT, of course (*sob*lastweek*sob*), Continuum, Grimm, Cosmos, The Americans, and SOON more Orange is the New Black and Orphan Black. Yipee. Okay, The Vampire Diaries is tedious, OUAT: Wonderland was dull as a stump, and Criminal Minds is being written by a million monkeys with a million typewriters (would someone please put it out of my misery please)?

That's about the it.

January talking meme, Jan 5. From [profile] shadowkat67: Connor (angel the series) arc vs. Henry (ouat) arc.

My initial reaction to this topic was, "What do these characters have in common besides being the brats of their respective story universes? Not much!" But this turns out to be untrue.

As characters, both Connor and Henry are the children of the primary protagonist/hero of their respective shows (you can disagree with me that Emma is the primary protagonist/hero of OUAT, but there is a strong case to be made for this). Both were raised by their parent's enemies. And both are presented as relatively passive characters who are manipulated and that things happen to rather than characters who make choices and act on them.

Let's look at their respective arcs. Warning: as [profile] astrogirl2 would say, the deer got a bit teal here. Spoilers for all five seasons of Angel, and up to episode 3.11 of OUAT.

TV meme

Dec. 28th, 2013 08:29 pm
masqthephlsphr: (lost6)
So apparently, I did this meme for 2011, but not 2012. 2013 was weird, TV-wise, because I dumped cable TV in December of 2012, and in some ways, watched more new (to me) programs than I did when I had cable. It really has changed the way I watch TV. Now, I'm much more likely to at least watch one episode of something on spec, knowing I can catch up with it in order if I want to. Streaming video makes it easier to find stuff you actually like, as opposed to meandering through the glut of 2000 channels of 24-hour cable. One thing that hasn't changed is my hesitation in trying brand-spanking new traditional network shows. I still wait for my flist's reaction, and a few seasons to pass, as a rule.

The ability to watch entire seasons of a show in one fell swoop can make the actual "start date" of viewing a blur, so some of the below I'm not 100% sure about starting in 2013:

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2013?

The Americans, Orphan Black, Orange is the New Black, Continuum, The Vampire Diaries, Weeds, Sleepy Hollow, Eureka, Sherlock. Probably a few others I can't remember.

Which TV show did you let go of in 2013?

Revolution. I watched until the final ep of season 1, but post-apocalyptic gung-ho paramilitary hijinks, just not my thing.

Dexter, but that was over anyway.

I keep threatening to stop watching Criminal Minds, just because the show has become a parody of itself. I couldn't quite get a finger on why, until I started a recent rewatch of the early seasons. In seasons 1-7, you could always count on the team being wrong about something in their profile, and having to refine it, and even then getting a twist on each classic psychosis. And not a twist at the end, but a twist in the entire episode. It wasn't predictable. Now? Seasons 8 and 9 have just become paint-by-numbers stories, where you can predict the outcome, and the perp's "signature" right off the initial crime scene.

For me, the show ended perfectly at the end of season 7. But I still watch.

Which TV show did you mean to get into but didn't in 2013? Why?

My Netflix queue is full of shows I may or may not get around to: Alphas, Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, Elementary, Fringe, Fullmetal Alchemist, Skins, Supernatural, Torchwood. I donno. Lately, I've been on an Investigation Discovery True Crime series kick. Totally disturbing, and yet the stand-alone episode tabloid histrionics doesn't require brain cells to watch.

Which TV show do you intend to check out in 2014?

The potential new post-Voyager web Star Trek series, Star Trek Renegades, looks interesting. At least it's not JJ Abrams pseudo-Trek.

http://startrekrenegades.com/home/story/
http://sfcrowsnest.org.uk/star-trek-renegades-trailer/

Which TV show impressed you least in 2013?

Sleepy Hollow. I still see a lot of my flist gushing over it, apparently because it's insane crack to them. But I think enjoyable insane crack is taste-specific. My idea of enjoyable insane crack was season 2 of Lost.

Which TV show did you enjoy the most in 2013?

Once Upon A Time became my first real TV fandom since Angel was cancelled (I liked Lost, but didn't start really posting about it until season 6, and those were mostly chirping cricket posts). I was a "Yeah, sure, I try to catch it each week" OUAT fan until the episode Manhattan. Then they totally got me hook, line, and sinker.
masqthephlsphr: (OUAT)
Word is after 12/15, OUAT season 3 will not return until March 9th. Whut. So, plan:

http://2ceuponatime.livejournal.com/5449.html
masqthephlsphr: (alias will)
Good birthday weekend. Saturday, the Sculptor and I had our usual Saturday night dinner and teevee. We've been watching Alias, and had finally got to one of my favorite moments of Season 1, when Will finds out about Sydney's secret life. We also had a dry red wine from our Sonoita trip that has a distinctive taste of chocolate in it (Wilhelm Family Vineyards, Karyl's Creation, if you are curious).

I tried to spend most of Sunday relaxing since I am still not feeling one hundred percent, and stabbing at NaNo. I kept telling myself, "Take a break, it's your birthday," but NaNo is what it has always been--the poorly-timed writing marathon month that takes on a life of its own. It's no wonder I get flu-ey every November.

Sunday evening, D and I took my family to Top of The Rock, a Tempe restaurant built into the side of one of the Valley's many ant-hill rock "mountains". It has a fabulous view of the central Phoenix area outside the window and fancy (although simultaneously casual) food. I may regret the bit of over-indulgence later this week. ; )

There was an amazing full moon.

After dropping my mom back home (she is waiting for the DMV to process her doctor's sign-off on her vision and her license reinstated), I settled in for this week's OUAT, which was something of a game-changer. The show has me as "Hooked" as ever, which makes it frustrating that I am not bonding yet with OUAT: Wonderland, though I continue to watch it.
masqthephlsphr: (OUAT3)
New ep discussion for Ep 1.10: 7:15 AM here:

http://2ceuponatime.livejournal.com/3385.html
masqthephlsphr: (Dexter)
Summer used to be the vast months of waiting for favorite network shows to return. Which of course it still is, but there are plenty of summer shows in the meantime, both first-run, and stuff I'm watching on Netflix and Google Play.

Orphan Black: Page-turning awesome (in a TV kind of way). My thoughts here.


Orange is the New Black: Prisoner Cell-block H lite (I suppose nobody but me remembers that show. Women in prison genre.) But refreshingly not played as a total audience-vouyerism op. Yes, there is some gratuitous sex (het and F/F), but mostly the characters are three-dimensional people and their situations genuine. The format is a bit like Lost with a large ensemble cast and flashback sequences showing you how the different prisoners got into their present situations.

I agree with [personal profile] mamculuna that the picture of prison life presented by Orange is probably rosy in comparison to real prison life, and yet you still leave the show thinking, "I promise to be good and not do anything illegal and eat all my vegetables to avoid a place like that."

spoilers )


I have yet to tune into the new season of Dexter. I think they dealt well with the Debra emotional arc well last season (up until the final episode, anyway), but I fear for the depiction of my girl in the new season.


True Blood: Watching it, don't have a lot of thoughts. It's one of those shows I use to veg out and not think many thoughts.


Continuum: Season 2 ended weirdly. This is a show I am going to have to go back and rewatch in order to figure out exactly what happened. Srsly, you have to take notes to follow all the character threads, what with the jumping forward and back in time stuff. Luckily, it's a good enough show that I want to do a season 2 rewatch.

What really throws you, though, is that from the beginning, Continuum tips its audience off-kilter with a lack of a clear moral high ground to root for. spoilers )


The Vampire Diaries: Got all caught up on this show via Netflix and other means, and despite its cracked-out adolescent soapiness, I will probably tune in in the fall. Mostly because the new spin-off means less airtime spent on the Originals. So you can imagine I am skeptical of said spin-off. I find the original vampires tedious. spoilers )


Weeds: Still catching up. Currently on season 4. This show has turned out to be an interesting experiment in expectations. I went into it knowing only that it was about a suburban mom who sells pot to make a living. And that it was a premium channel show. spoilers )


The Once Upon a Time season 1 rewatch is still going on at [profile] 2ceuponatime. We watched episode 9, "True North" last weekend. Discussion here.

Speaking of OUAT, the season 2 DVDs are coming out soon in the US and OnceUponATimeFans is posting the special features videos on YouTube. Go to the http://www.youtube.com/user/OnceUponATimeFans feed. It has the teasers for season 3 as well (watch out for spoilers!), teasers for OUAT: Wonderland, and they are up to #12 in the chronological flashback videos.

Coming back from a vacation is rough. East-to-west jet lag, unpacking, getting back into routines. Of course, my routine prior to vacation involved a lot of lying around after work watching The Vampire Diaries, so this should be a piece of cake, yis?

Except for that to-do list over there of stuff I said I'd do after my vacation this year.

I have posted a preliminary viewing schedule here. It may need some adjustments, so go chime in your thoughts.

OUAT flashback videos, Chapter 3: Cora and Eva



Now, on the topic of OUAT, I am thinking this for a rewatch:

(1) Start a community called Twice Upon A Time (oh, the cleverness of me!) - It is here [profile] 2ceuponatime
(2) Watch one episode a week. No big rush to get to season 2 or to finish before the new season starts. I am thinking a Sunday evening NA Eastern time zone 8 pm time slot for when posts on the latest ep are welcome.
(3) Allow anyone who is a member of the comm to post new posts with thots.
(4) Get someone more artistic than me to give us a cool banner.

Low stress, fun paramount. Thots?

In other news, less than a month until my fab Netherlands/Germany/Switzerland vacation. The Sculptor and I are making plans with [profile] zargon10 for our Amsterdam jaunt.

In the mean time, I am having a brain-fried time at work, I am squeezing in daily hours on my novel, and I officially cancelled the lumbar medial branch block+radiofrequency ablation procedure, at least for now. I may revisit them in a year down the line, but I want to try just going on physical therapy exercises for time being.

Oh, and I got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, which I am wrestling with as I learn how to use it.

And my mom is being discharged from the extended care facility next Monday.
