Once again, I seriously wish Power Rangers was out on DVD. Not just half-seasons (and what is UP with that??? Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder both had just the first half of the season released), but everything, from "Day of the Dumpster" to the final ep of Dino Thunder. I seriously want to make a Red Ranger video to "Headstrong," because that song sums up just about every Red Ranger we've ever had, from Jason to Jack. That and I wouldn't mind digital quality first-season eps, when the boys could go shirtless on the beach, before parents raised a stink. I think after Tommy, briefly, in "White Light," the next shirtlessness on PR was Devin in Dino Thunder, ep. "Ocean Alert," and he wasn't even a Ranger!

I missed so much (pretty much Zeo through Lightspeed Rescue) because of first living in the dorms with a roommate who found PR silly, then having no cable and lousy Fox reception. I missed almost all of Judd Lynn's reign as King of GOOD Ranger scripts. If I remember, and am up early enough, I can catch some of them on ABCFamily's Power Ranger Generations, but they have a monkey working the control desk at that time of morning.

And on a completly unrelated note, looking at a pic of Lucius Malfoy from the movies, I had a sudden image of him as a LOTR-style elf. And I think Eiko's Potterverse Sims stories are rubbing off on me, because I actually felt sorry for Narcissa in HBP. See here: http://www.sims2community.com/showthread.php?t=2485

Well, at least they're getting the requirements over with early.
"Arrogant Red Ranger?"
"Check."
"Stubborn second-in-command with chip on his shoulder?"
"Check."

So, that means we still have the "Sisterhood" requirement, the "Oddball" requirement, the "gag ep" requirement, and hopefully the "We learn the true story behind the comic relief" requirement.

Can you guess that so far, I like Boom? I want to know more about him. We know he flunked out of Ranger Academy on his third day. But why did they offer to let him stay as a "gadget tester?" Now, I haven't looked up any info on the sentai yet, so I don't know if there's a sixth Ranger, and if there is, if he's "real." But at this time, Boom doesn't have the Cam vibe. You know, the "Oh, he's gonna be a Ranger, it's so OBVIOUS" vibe.

OH! Other big thing this episode. We saw a pic of Sky's dad! IN UNIFORM!!! It looked like...I think Time Force? So...Time Force and Silver Guardians evolved into SPD? I haven't caught the name of the city they're in, but...how cool is that?

I can't see how a crossover is going to fit in here. Dino Thunder was present-day. SPD is "future." Unless they "fast-forward" and show the DT teens as adults living in this new society, I can't see how it'll work. Tommy managed to link all the continuities together in DT, and the shot of the Time Force uni in SPD seems to connotate a link, but....like I said, I haven't looked up Sentai info to see if there's even footage (hell, I still haven't watched the last three eps of DT!! They're on a tape around here somewhere).

Maybe that's what I'll do today. Look for the DT tape. Or I'll lose myself in the Sims again.

Okay, I see what sparked Jack's arrogance, but really. The ep resolved too neatly. It was like, "Okay, we always need an arrogant Red ep, so let's get it over with." I was almost rooting for Kreuger to give the Red morpher to Sky right there. :-P

Still not sure on Sydney. Again, all I saw of her was "ditz."

In other news, Thursday morning around 1 am, I woke up ill. I figured it was stomach flu. It hit my husband an hour later. :-P I got over most of the leakage by noon, feeling somewhat better. He was still incapacitated til later that evening. I got the chills when he started feeling better, ended up retreating to the nice, warm, heated waterbed and the flannel comforter. Next morning, he was fine. Me, I had screaming pain fron the base of my skull to the tip of my tailbone. Still had it this morning with the added bonus of burning pain, like someone whacked me on the back of the head with a baseball bat.

But on the plus side, I managed to eat a burger, fries and a coke.

The hour-long premiere of the new season of Power Rangers was this morning at 8:30 am eastern. Watched it with the hubby. Here are my thoughts.

-Sky is going to learn some tough lessons this season. Father was a Red Ranger, expects to be Red, gets Blue...and sees Red given to a Robin Hood-style thief. One with no regard for the rules. One he busted and brought in. Oh, he's going to have a major stick up his ass. I was really hoping the last name would reference a former on-screen Ranger, but I don't remember a Red Ranger with the last name Tate.

-Sydney may get on my nerves. It's like if Kim and Skull had a child. All the beauty, none of the brains. Hopefully it's just because we don't know her yet, but man, does she seem like a ditz. Hopefully we'll learn more about her, because right now, the only impression I have of her is "Pretty, but not too bright." Can't see what made her be good enough to be B-Squad Ranger material

-Bridge seems cool. Yes, a tad dense, but more like intelligent-dense, as in it takes him a while to find the words to express the awesomeness in his thoughts. His power is amazing...and may be one of the reasons he seems to have difficulty expressing himself. It must be hard to translate what he sees with his powers into terms people can understand. Like Geordi and his visor.

-Z seems a lot like our initial version of Jaime Zedden. Street-smart, willing to follow the rules...but also willing to bend them enough to fit her needs. I liked her quoting the code back to Sky. But she'll probably be learning the consequences of using her street contacts.

-And Jack...ah, Jack. (shakes head) He seemed noble this episode, but the previews for next week make me want to kick him hard. What IS it with Red Rangers making people arrogant? Sky would have been bad enough as Red, thinking it his birthright and all, but what HAPPENED to Jack? I think maybe there's more to the story, and I'm hoping they flesh it out next week. I loved his instant rapport with the robo-puppy.

-And poor Boom. I really hope he gets an episode to shine. He seems so...likeable. Trying so hard to shine, and failing so hard. I really hope he's not the butt of the Rangers' jokes all the time.

-I have a theory on the A-Squad Rangers. Bridge said their engery was "off." And Kreuger sending them instead of B-Team, who was right there. This is my first official prediction of this season: I think the A-Squad are robots.

So far, it has potential. It doesn't have the instant "squee" factor of Dino Thunder (c'mon, DT had TOMMY back!) and it doesn't have the instant "Wow" factor of Ninja Storm and Time FOrce, but it also doesn't have the "cringe" factor of Wild Force. So, right now, I'm going to keep watching and see what happens.

Funny, though, I don't remember seeing Doug Sloan's name in the credits...is he no longer associated with PR?

Just waiting for my boyfriend's mom to wake up, so we can start making the rounds of Goodwills. It's 50% off today.

I keep getting ideas for music videos. Trouble is, there aren't enough episodes of Rangers on DVD for me to MAKE any of them. sigh. Maybe I'll post a list and tell y'all to use your imagination. ;-P

Good news

Okay, so my boyfriend and I are back together, as of a week ago yesterday. Don't have my own Internet yet, but I can still use his computer. I'm hoping to get my state tax refund back soon, so I can get cable internet. Mmm, cabley goodness. Still have to use an antenna for television, but at least I'll have high-speed internet. :-P

I started working a touch on my original PR series. Have 1 page typed, three segments, intro segments for the initial three. When I get a cohesive plot together, I'll let you know.

Oh, and I may post the three pages I wrote the day after the breakup. Emotional stuff.

Oh, and yeah, I need some Photoshop tutorials. If anyone knows a good online tutorial for PS6, dealing with layers and effects and the like, e-mail me. webmaster @ gridmasterscastle-dot-freeservers-dot-com Turns out my Photoshop crosses over to my new XP box without a hitch. Yay. :) But I still am missing the technical knowledge to get what's in my head out onto the screen, and then to paper. Help!

Ah, a day off from work. Time to go home, clean up the place, move some furniture, and see if I can't bust out another few pages of Dolphin's Cry before my hand goes numb again.

Gyah. Real life. Hisss!!!!

Finally got a file cabinet, so I have all my old notebooks sorted and organized. Yay me.

Found the 12" Dustin.....yikes. That's all I have to say, yikes. I repainted a Power Team figure for my 5 Ninjas Takeout customs, and it looked more like Shane than the Bandai release. Why, oh why, does Bandai feel the need to make all their skintones chalk-white? I mean, Tori's pale, but not THAT pale!! Zombie Rangers, anyone?

My computer's currently at my boyfriend's, so pictures will come as I manage to get over there and wrest the keyboard away from him.

Well, the car is fixed (thanks Grandma!), I got my deposit from the previous apartment (minus about $90, but still good), I'm on the third floor, so I don't have to worry (too much) about the flooding, and I have a Rangers-inspired kitbashed Barbie!! Going to take pics of her, and see if I can't find a comparison screen-shot from the epi. Yes, folks, my first Ninja Storm figure bash is....MARAH, from All About Beevil.

And I have a vague flittering of a Kapri songfic to Material Girl flitting in my head....we'll see if anything comes of it.

If anyone's seen the 12" Dustin, LMK, please! I want his head....

I picked up Harry Potter 5 Friday morning around 10:30. Read from 11 am to 12:15, then half an hour at work, then started again around 10:30 pm, finishing it at 2:30 am.

Still not sure what I think, other than I think I need to go back and reread the whole series so far.

And Ninja Storm's not on for the next two weeks. At least they paused after an interesting episode. I adored human Marah. She's just so cute...
