Ms Crooked Halo











A long time ago, we use to be friends, Roni Mars and I…

…until the station pulled the plug and left me hankering for a real resolution to the series.

How I missed that there was a 3rd season I don’t know.

But I rectified that with a quickness when I found out that I could watch full episodes of the Veronica Mars TV show online on Amazon Prime.

I began to stream Veronica Mars Season 1 through Season 3 immediately and found myself disappointed that there was not a Season 4.

(Random thought, but did anyone else hate what they did with the Veronica Mars We Use To Be Friends theme song in Season 3?!?)

Enter the Veronica Mars kickstarter program and the crowdfunding of a Veronica Mars movie.

I was super stoked when I first watched the Veronica Mar trailer on Youtube.

I was satisfied with the Veronica Mars Movie

I say satisfied because, omg, it left me with because it left me with so many new questions.

First off, I had to do an imdb Veronica Mars search to refresh my memory regarding Carrie Bishop.

The original actress was Leighton Meester (of Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl fame) but was portrayed by an unknown Andrea Estella in the movie.

No wonder I didn’t remember.

Ok, first thing that seriously bothered me is why Wallace is working at the school as a coach.

After making such a big deal about Wallace studying mechanical engineering or whatever it was all throughout Season 3, why isn’t he working in that field?!?

And what is going to happen to the Kane’s. How’s Duncan doing on the run with the baby (the Kane security guy knows where he is or, at least, was the last one seen in contact with him after he did the hit on Aaron Echols). Did Veronica really let it go about Jake Kane being the one to release her sex tape? Why didn’t Weevil finger Celeste Kane as the one who shot him?

Speaking of Weevil, is he back in the gang for good or will he go back to being daddy goody two shoes with his wife and kid.

Is Dick Casablanca really on prescription weed? Can’t really blame the guy after all that he has been through. He personified tears of a clown if you ask me. Or, to be more modern, fake it til you make it. His slogan is now wake, bake, fake, and make.

BTW, did you know that you can catch Dick Casablanca, PI on Play It Again, Dick.

Are they just going to leave the murder of Deputy Sacks unresolved?

Will Keith Mars become Sheriff again?

(Speaking of Keith, I really miss Backup. I guess 10 years would have been unreasonable for them to have the same dog. ~sigh~)

Why didn’t Stosh “Piz” Piznarski fight more for Veronica after being together almost 9 years. And why was she justing meeting his parents now?

What happened to Wallace’s Mom and Brother?

And we all know that Veronica decided to stay in Neptune but will she be a lawyer, a PI, or a conglomeration of the two? Will she work with her dad or branch of on her own?

Apparently fellow Marshmallows, there is a Veronica Mars book that takes off just where the movie ends.

And it is written by Veronica Mars show creater Rob Thomas.

No fan fiction here! Woo Hoo!!!

Veronica Mars: An Original Mystery by Rob Thomas: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line

Ten years after graduating from high school in Neptune, California, Veronica Mars is back in the land of sun, sand, crime, and corruption. She’s traded in her law degree for her old private investigating license, struggling to keep Mars Investigations afloat on the scant cash earned by catching cheating spouses until she can score her first big case.

Now it’s spring break, and college students descend on Neptune, transforming the beaches and boardwalks into a frenzied, week-long rave. When a girl disappears from a party, Veronica is called in to investigate. But this is no simple missing person’s case; the house the girl vanished from belongs to a man with serious criminal ties, and soon Veronica is plunged into a dangerous underworld of drugs and organized crime. And when a major break in the investigation has a shocking connection to Veronica’s past, the case hits closer to home than she ever imagined.

I gots ta have it!!! Lol.

I have a google alert to see if there is ever going to be a Season 4 or another Veronica Mars movie.

So far, nothing concrete yet.

Hurry up already!!

We Marshmallows are waiting!



{July 25, 2012}   Bored with the internet

Every now and then, I just get bored with the internet.

I just feel…blah…about it…

English: A bored person

Which can be a bad thing being as I work from the internet.

I just don’t want to even turn on any internet connected device.

Check email?

Boo!

Facebook?

Not today.

It usually passes as I force myself through.

Hm. Perhaps I should track this feeling and see if it follows my cycle of the moon.

Probably.

Meanwhile, maybe I should go find me some silly video on youtube to give me a case of  the giggles.

~yawn~

Does anyone else burn out of wanting to be on the internet every now and then?

{February 6, 2012}   Blackberry Playbook: Day 1 – 4

Playbooks went on sale this week and I swooped one up on Thursday from the Sprint store in MacArthur Mall.

Actually, I ended up buying two of them.

Want to hear that story for first?

You do…

Ok, here’s what happened.

I was browsing Amazon for a cheap yet reliable tablet and I had almost decided Amazon Kindle Fire
when lo and behold…the BlackBerry Playbook was on sale for the exact same amount.

Which to get ….

Which to get…

Research….

Research….

Research….

Ok, that was no help.

But, ya know what, the Kindle Fire is and will always be $199 but this Playbook is on sale.

Decision clinched….add to cart….and purchased.

But, wait, you say, that is only one Blackberry Playbook…I thought you said that bought two.

Hold ya horses….I’m getting to that!

Did you fail to see where I said that I got mine from the Sprint Store?!?!

So, yeah, I went downtown with a friend to handle some business.

She had to pay her Sprint bill so I met back up with her in the store.

And I allowed her to talk me into relieving my need for instant gratification by buying a Playbook then and there.

(I actually considered the Samsung Galaxy tablet too but Sprint forces you to get a contract on that one…so nope!)

First, however, we took advantage of the Apple store to cancel my order on Amazon.

And this is where it gets interesting.

Because when I got home, I not only had an email from Amazon saying that they could not cancel my order but that my BB Playbook has already been shipped.

Mind you, I went for the Super Saver Shipping which is free, and thus, the very bottom of the shipping barrell.

Frankly, I think that it got shipped faster because I cancelled it! Lol.

No worries, though….as I could always refuse delivery and gets my ends back, right?

Wrong!

Because when Baby Girl found out that another one was coming, she immediately put her dibs in…

She even went so far as to bargain way the laptop that she has been begging to get for months!

And heck….I’m no fool.

$200 for a Playbook or at least 4 large for a decent laptop…

You do the math! Lol.

Anyway, I thought that I would chronicle my journey with it thus far.

So, here is the Playbook Chronicles Days 1 – 4.

Day 1:

I’m in love!

The Playbook has a nice weight to it…it feels nice and substantial. Like it could take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’.

It is also small enough to slide right into my slim cross body purse so I can take it everywhere with no problem.

It took me a minute to get use to all of the sliding this way and that to move from screen to screen but within an hour or so, I was an expert! lol.

I watched Youtube videos and movies on a site that shall not be named but, yeah, it is shady…but free! lol. I tried to watch Hulu but, as usual, not supported. Frankly, Hulu, that is getting embarrassing. And you want me to pay for Hulu Plus? Yeah, right….

I tried to pick up the wifi on a friend’s phone but it could not find it…Boo! Then I realized that I hadn’t activated the program. Lol. Hopefully, that was the only problem and BB did not make a Apple mistake of only allowing me to use a BB phone to use Wifi. That would suck royally.

Day 2:

Realized that there is no Kindle App…yet…bummed….Hopefully soon since BB is opening itself up to the Android market.

I found this cool cover/keyboard that I really, Really, REALLY want but I am saving up for a car.

The only thing missing is a place to put a stylus.

Day 3:

Found out that I could use the Amazon Kindle Cloud to read books. I can also pin to books to take with me on the go. Not quite as nice as a real Kindle App but it is servicable. The Cloud is slow to load and clunky to operate but the actually reading part is great.

I also played the car game. The graphics are beautifully clear. And it was FREE! Take that iPad!

What I do not like is that there are no gmail or yahoo apps.

Instead, clicking the icon will take you to the browser.

Duh, I could have gone to the browser by myself! Lol.

Running Yahoo seems to be fine but the new gmail seems to be clunky.

Not sure if this is a problem common to all tablets but I do not have this problem on my iPod Touch.

Day 4:

Took my Playbook over a friend’s house today and her kids fell in love with the racey car game.

She is considering getting one for her toddler to keep him happy in the car but I advised it might be better to get him a Sony PSP.
