what i wanted to post about was NCIS: NOLA (what's new?)

i was completely indifferent to the new woman in this week's episode, i suppose i was too distracted by trying to figure out why the actress who played sebastian lund's mother looked familiar. (it was wendie malick)

while looking for the ratings i found NCIS: NOLA got 65% on rotten tomatoes (i didn't know they did TV shows) 6.9 our of 10 on imdb & 5.4 our of 10 on tv.com

according to bythenumbers.zap2it the rating for this week, oct. 18, are only 9.56 million (come on people!)

but according to the same site:
Let’s get this out of the way: “NCIS: New Orleans” will be back in 2017-18. It’s covered by the Third Season Rule, which states that shows in their third full season, which are produced by their network’s affiliated studio, just about always get a fourth season.

“NCIS: New Orleans” fits all those criteria, and it’s a shoo-in to go to the very green syndication pastures its fellow “NCIS” shows enjoy. All that is a good thing for the show, especially at this moment, because it’s not doing especially well in the ratings.

i hope they're right.

....you have an idea for something that you want to post and then forget what the frell it was?
archersangel: (sarcastic)
third verse, same as the first: i don't really care for the new woman.

might have disliked her a smidgen less after this week's episode. i read somewhere that in the sixth episode their going to reveal a more vulnerable side to the character & that will all magically make us like her. *gag*

it doesn't matter one bit if the viewers start to like her, if the rating keep going down like they are this is the end of the series.

from the post:
It’s called Havocscope. It’s got information and prices for all sorts of edgy information. Ever wondered how much cocaine costs by the gram, or how much a kidney sells for, or (worst of all) how much it costs to hire an assassin?

In case you’re wondering, Havocscope is a database full of information regarding the criminal underworld. The information you will find there has been taken from newspapers and police reports.

the rating are down. that is thought to be the result of brody being written out & gary glassberg's passing just last month.
After his death, another blow came to the show with the departure of Zoe McLellan‘s departure from the show, which further affected the show’s ratings. From its 11 to 12 million viewers during its premiere episode for season 3, the ratings are going downhill from there. Although the second episode rating showed some improvements, it is still low compared to what the show has been expecting.

The show has to find something to renew the interest of its viewers. Something that will take their minds away from the recent developments happening in the show. If such performance continues, there is a possibility that this could be the show’s last season.

and it doesn't help that stupid CBS moved it to 10 pm on tuesdays in favor of that stupid bull show.

also brody's replacement seems to have a hard time fitting in. the actress as well as the character.
Vanessa Ferlito, on the other hand, said in a report that she might find it a real struggle to fit in the big shoes of McLellan’s character. Furthermore she said that it is a “New Orleans thing” which means that they are “territorial.” The new cast member added that this is the gang’s place and that they are proud of New Orleans. She even described the city as a “tight-knit community.”

come on people! i'm not happy with this change, but i want to have scott bakula on my tv on a regular basis. *sigh* maybe those goofy cult of scott bakula people are right & his career did die for our sins.

back in april i posted about the shoes i got just 2 years prior coming apart.  well about a week ago i glued them back together using stuff called goop. and wore them out a few days ago. so far they're holding up, but they apparently don't squeak any more. not so far at least. but they do creak some though.

but now the boots that i got only last year are coming apart. *head desk* i glued the area where the separation is, but now more of  were the sole joins to the main part is separating, so i have to try to fix that.

i know these companies want to make money, but why can't they have stuff that last more than a few (3-4) years? and don't tell me that more expensive shoes last longer, because that's bull. several years ago my brother bought a $70 pair of shoes (on sale from $140) & they only lasted about two years. and he didn't even wear them every day.

i just noticed on my calendar (have to get a 2017 one soon) that it doesn't have halloween listed on oct. 31, just a little drawing of a pumpkin. i looked at christmas, thanksgiving, veteran's day & they all have the holiday name listed.

the only thing i can figure is that some very religious person who worked on these things is so against halloween that they refused to put the name on the day, but still had to indicate the holiday.

I’ve had this prompt generator I put together for a while now, so I thought I’d share the link for anyone who needs an inspiration. There are:

3 150 au ideas
900 humoristic sentence/dialogue prompts
85 other sentence prompts
180 movie/show/book AUs, 179 setting AUs, 84 profession AUs
56 relationship and 217 theme ideas

You can shuffle each category independently or just refresh the whole page . The generator works just as good on the phone.

just FYI, i don't post scary/gory stuff for halloween.

the most you might get is cartoon skeletons, black cats, ghosts, or witches. maybe a jack 'o lantern. and if there are links in anything (either the article or comments) that i do post that leads to something scary/gory, i apologize.

*well, for most. some have been in "halloween mode" since sept. 1

still not liking the new woman.
the NCIS: NOLA page on CBS' site has a picture of her with blond-ish hair, it's not for her. i'm hoping it's an old picture & not how she might look later on.

thought that pride's "go on drink" move by bumping his glass against hers on the bar was cute. major credit to whoever came up with that.

tom arnold sounds like he had a head cold or something. or maybe that's how tom arnold sounds now. i don't know.

and of course that had to have a scene showing one of the those fabulous ford productstm in the scene with the guy on the motorcycle.

no reason why i'm posting these, but then i probably don't need a reason.

"a conversation with scott bakula" a nerd HQ 2016 (some thing zachary levi from chuck does)

scott on CBS sunday morning talking about NCIS: NOLA

scott at the 50th anniversary trek creation con in vegas

he sang just a little bit of a song from hamilton & if i didn't internally squee, i certainly squeaked because just a couple of days ago i posted a thing about a NCIS: NOLA/hamilton fusion.

he mentioned that if ENT had gone on longer the might have been a musical episode. so now, there needs to be a musical episode of NCIS: NOLA

it's time to nominate stuff for [community profile] festivids . i considered nominating some fandoms, but this year they want you to sign up on their site to do it. i don't want to go though the bother of signing up for yet another site.

so if you are signed up or soon will be, could you do me a favor & put some of mine on your list if you fall short of the 10 fandom limit? 

i think they qualify & don't have many fan vids;
NCIS: new orleans
the quest (2014)
ghost adventures
quantum leap
golden girls

and if you're a vidder & get one of these as your assignment, i have some ideas.

archersangel: (bad situation)
apparently back in 2014 and why we're just finding out now is beyond me.

info from about 500 million accounts like revealed names, email addresses, phone numbers, birth dates and, in some cases, security questions and answers (don't anyone remember what their security Q & A is?) where taken. Yahoo urged users to change their passwords if they haven't since 2014. well i have so i'm not going to bother.

my brother says "they" tell you to make a "secure" password because that way it's harder to crack with the stuff hackers use, but then the hackers just go & hack the main site and get your info anyway. so what's the point?

archersangel: (weird quiet girl)
1. that whole: "yes, brody leaving was out of nowhere, but we will get over it." was totally directed at the fans.

2. percy touring civil war sites seems to be a nod to the actress being in a few episodes of a civil war era show: mercy street. (i think is said in a previous post that she was in underground, but i was mistaken)

3. pride's bête noire has the last name of hamilton, so someone besides me must be thinking of some sort of NCIS: NOLA/hamilton fusion-thing. (even though i know little about the hamilton musical) despite the fact that this hamilton might just turn out to be a big, bad guy some day.

archersangel: (filler)
so far i'm not liking the new FBI woman.

i don't know why when they have new a character join the team in these kind of situations, it's always some abrasive character. a by-the-book type or someone who gets assigned to the team when they don't want to be reassigned.
archersangel: (like the movies)
and during one mission he opened a container & it had tow items, i forget wht the first one was, but the second was a tribble. he said: "i'm not taking that. the tribble can go fu** itself." he paused and added; "actually i think that's how they reproduce."

it's a "free to play" thing he's doing through the internet via the PS4 & dispite this game having been out for years, it has issues.

the game has a lot of things for the trek fan to pick up on; p'jem, orion syndicate, gorn, the aforementioned tribbles & the enterprise-d among others.

you can customize the hell out of your character. he's playing as a human, but i'm sure there's a boat-load of options for the klingon & romulan too.

you can track your orders, both outgoing to you & returning to them. apparently it has to do with shipping costs, because the e-mail i got said that they weigh the books on their end & then print the labels (one for sending it to you & one for you to return it) but this messes up things for people who get two or more 2-book orders because you have to send the 2 you get back together.

for me this is a good thing because: 1. i don't have to remember to sign-in & check the option of i received them on a certain date or mailed them in on a certain date. and 2. i can see where the book are when i have sent them in like a week ago & still didn't get the e-mail that they got them.

but it's also bad because i'm checking 2 or 3 times a day to see where they are & googeling the town name to see where it is in relation to my location or where booksfree is.

from takebackhalloween.com's about page:
So what’s this all about, anyway?

First of all, Take Back Halloween isn’t a store. We’re not selling any of this stuff. We’re a resource guide: we come up with the costume designs, explain what you’ll need to pull off the look, and provide links to where you can buy the various components.

Our overall approach is about creating great costumes with stuff that is readily available: either already in your closet, on sale at eBay or some other retailer, or in stock at a costume store. No sewing! See our “how to use this website” page for a quick rundown on how it works.

What we mean by “taking it back”

We love Halloween. We really love Halloween. We think it’s cool that there’s one day a year when people can dress up as anything they want. What we don’t think is cool is that increasingly women are only supposed to dress up as one thing: “Sexy _____” (fill in the blank). Sexy Nurse, Sexy Cowgirl, Sexy whatever.

the have four categories: glamor grrls, goddesses & legends, notable women and queens.

many interesting ideas, but you may have to answer the question of "who are you supposed to be?" a lot.

*i know it's only the middle part of september, but it may take time to get stuff together for these & have time to make them.
