I Want To Believe
Ope, well, I’ve started getting inquiries about my whereabouts; so I thought I’d post and save you all from worrying. 🙂
BTW, the image above is me, just in case you’re wondering. I got new glasses a couple of months ago. I went with dark rims, because my previous set had been clear and offered little definition to my face.
My friend who took this picture called it my “Seriously Disturbed Look” (pic description: it shows me giving thumbs up and staring very intently off at something).
I’ll tell you, the reason I haven’t posted in the last week is because I’ve been on a drawing kick. This next picture really doesn’t do the drawing justice, but as of right now, it’s all I’ve got to show you.
It’s also done now. It’s taken on a very technicolor, psychedelic look. I call it my “Dragon Flower,” because everyone sees dragons in it. Can you see the spider? It’d done entirely in pen – took me a week.
As for today’s title, did you know that another X-Files movie is coming out? I saw the first one in theater. Like twice. I owned it on VHS and then I bought it again on DVD. I mean, this is serious dedication here. I even watched the show most of the way through the last season, until it just got so ridiculous that I couldn’t stand it anymore and I stopped watching.
I started watching in season 3; so that was a pretty lengthy amount of time that I invested in it. The earlier seasons were by far the best – like the first 5 or so.
So I turn on the tv, yes? And they’re advertising this X-Files movie and all I can think to myself is “Geez, David Duchovny is old!” Back in my tween and teen years, Duchovny was easily a major special interest of mine. We’re talking serious obsession here. You should have seen my room back in the day. It was covered in clippings from newspapers, magazines — you name it, I had it on my walls. Plus, I owned almost all of the books, and had taped a great many of the episodes.
Okay, I know it’s the big thing now to go and do movies with the same characters 5, 10, 17 years later, but I don’t know if I can handle it in this case. Indiana Jones worked out pretty good – mostly. Blues Brothers was fun. I just don’t know if I can stand to see them on the screen again. It’s not like they’re really known for anything else. I know that I haven’t seen Gillian Anderson (Scully) in anything since then. And the only thing I can remember Duchovny doing was “Evolution.” Try to tell me that that didn’t suck.
At least the other characters have moved on and really gone out there and kept working. I know that I’ve seen Nicholas Lea in a few other things. Ah, Nicholas Lea. To some you will be known into infinity as “Krycek,” but for me, you will always be “Ratboy.” *sigh*
