I'm watching the trailer for Pacific Rim and the huge, gigantic robots are amazing! And then it got me thinking...
It's time to do Voltes V, DAMMIT!
If you don't know that anime from the 70s, it's time for you to hunt it down. It's a story about family, friendship and intrigue, and I love it so much!

Chef John is the funniest and most entertaining chef I ever came across whether on tv or online. And I love, love his recipes! I'm not turning into food blog, I just really find him entertaining.
Check him out on YouTube: FoodWishes and his blog at foodwishes.blogspot.com
And this video on Tiramisu Chocolate Mousse Recipe for Valentine's Day (I know, off-season) is hilarious, and the dessert itself looks yum!

Is this something to get obsessed about? Let's see. I really hope so.

Before anything else, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, those who consider themselves moms, and to those who others consider as moms!
What about Iron Man 3, well, I've followed Robert Downey Jr. since Chances Are and down the spiraling, I've still been a fan of his. Despite all those things happening to him, he'd still give his all in his performances. He's an excellent actor and I couldn't be more proud of what he has done and overcome.
So, when Iron Man came, it was such a treat and I was so, so proud of RDJ. No doubt that he was excellent as Tony Stark and had that carried on through the trilogy.
That said, Sir Ben Kingsley stole the entire film for me. RDJ was such a scene stealer in all of his projects he was supporting actor, but he was out-scene-stolen by Ben Kingsley in that few minutes near the end of the film. It was such a good reveal that... OH MAH GAH! I fell in love with Ben Kingsley all over again (he's another one I followed for years) and I felt giddy and giggling the entire scene. He was so, so good!
As for the wank about the true nature of the Mandarin, well, we have our comics. Nobody can steal it away from us. We can have different versions of him even and that's just from one medium. Revel in them. Celebrate them. But let those who enjoy the movies, celebrate that as well and please, never refer to them as not-real fans just because they enjoyed it.

I'm not really putting ads in my blog but this is just too awesome to let go...

That doesn't feel like a season ender to me. It's like an episode just before the usual hiatus, but for a longer time. That's fine. However, what I don't like about this one is, it's like they crammed a lot of stories into 43 minutes that resulted into some strange editing of mashed stories that storytelling had been lost in a mire. They could have opted to have an hour and a half or two for the finale.
Wow. Rachel's part looks like it was just shoved in there because Lea has to sing that solo. As much as I enjoy her singing, I don't like that her part seems so out of place in the whole episode, even if they segued into her using Will's dialog.
What I like is they made a proper sendoff to Brittany. That's really sweet. Although, why didn't she mention Kurt when she said goodbye to each and everyone in the choir room? She must know that she's Kurt's first kiss? Crazy.
The catfish story should have been resolved last episode. And I don't have a Kitty this episode.
My heart is filled with rage because Blaine has no solo at Regionals. I mean, seriously? His part in the duet was even cut! What was that about? That's Blaine Anderson. I'm just. It's unacceptable. It's unbelievable that he has no solo at a competition. This is the part that made me angry. Although, I have to say, I love the fact that almost everyone got to sing in those three songs. It's a team effort, this one, just as always with this new New Directions, which I have much love for.
Blaine and Sam's friendship in this episode. I love it! These two. Sam openly said he loves Blaine, and jokes about inappropriate things, which I'm sure they do a lot of the times. This is the best relationship that Glee has ever created. I hope they don't mess this up. But even if there's some weird history between Tina and Blaine, these three still need to go and be roommates together in New York.
As for Kurt and Blaine, which I will talk about because it affects Blaine, all I want right now is for Kurt to witness Sam telling Blaine that he loves him even if he's being an idiot, and how totally close and tactile these two are as best buddies. Maybe we could get a reaction; maybe that's the kick in the ass that he needs. Because Kurt's just not there in this episode. Is he a frozen wax figure? Is he now moving on? Is that an acting choice on Chris Colfer's part or is that direction? Cold. Cold. Cold. I know, he'd felt hurt and betrayed by Blaine so many months ago, but I thought he'd move on, and he was so open last week. Right now, all I want to do is hold Blaine's hand and pull him in the other direction, Babe, this one's not into you anymore. Time to move on and find other cute guys to date. I thought he's Blaine's other best bud? And even that was not evident. I hope they give Kurt some really substantial lines about where his head is, because this season I keep saying every time I see him onscreen, Oh, hi there Kurt. I didn't know you're still here. That must be really hard for you Klainers. My heart's totally goes out to all of you. I was hoping for a blowup between these two some time ago, are we heading for it? I still hope so. I want them to have full-blown fight, have a nasty shouting match, and then a make up kiss at the end. Awwww.
But I'm still looking forward to Season 5.
Dear Glee, Blaine should have a solo at the Nationals and he should be the class valedictorian so he could deliver a valedictory speech while there's a cheesy montage going on. I want that. And he should also sing during the graduation. Ok, Glee. I think a lot in the media agree with me on this. OH! And he should be a rock or pop star before that valedictory speech. Yes?

I really don't want Blaine Anderson at NYADA. I'd love for Blaine as rock or pop star; that he'd be discovered before graduation. I really want this. Crossing my fingers and all my extremities for this. He could be in New York for this, I don't care. Just no to NYADA.

I want a movie that would cast Darren Criss opposite Emma Watson. I was hoping for this since last year. They'd look amazing onscreen!

Go and celebrate Free Comic Book Day?
Seeing fellow geeks lined up and excited since 5am in front of my favorite shop was such an excitement! When they started a countdown, I thought they're going to barge in and run towards the tables. I should have had good faith in this community because they walked in calmly, all smiles and politely approached the sales personnel manning the tables. And the funner part was, the parents brought their little children to get them to start reading comics.
There were Archie, The Walking Dead, Superman: The Last Son of Krypton, Prince Valiant, Marble Season, Infinity, Valiant Masters (with a Barry Windsor-Smith cover), Mass Effect, and Valiant 2013. There was even a pack of hard FCBD candies. And some other comics that the store thought to give away. Not only that! The trade paper backs were all at 50% discount.
That was really fun. Next year again!

Paul Wontorek is such a wonderful interviewer. Lots of tv personalities who do talk shows need to learn from him. He's the man!

The parents on this show are fantastic. They do right with the parents, and I love that.
Blaine, Blaine, Blaine... I love you, you know that but listen to Burt. See previous statement. But damn, Kurt's reaction to Blaine's invitation to stay until Regionals is making it hard for me to fault Blaine for even thinking about it. Blainey boy is still my favorite, though.
I don't like the meddling of the Old New Directions. Not one bit. They should stay out of it even if they're asked to mentor. Decline graciously, is what I mean. They are messing up this new group's dynamics which I have fallen in love with. Kurt can stay. He doesn't meddle. And he makes Blaine happy.
I love Kitty. I love Becca Tobin. That is all.
Finally saw a dance duet between Mike and Jake, and that's awesome. Real dancers showing their remarkable talent is always a joy to watch.
The music's good because it's Stevie Wonder, but there's something about the performances that makes them so remote. The only one I've ever connected with was Kitty's Signed, Sealed, Delivered. There's no Blaine solo and that makes me sad. I wear a Darren-colored glasses in the shape of Blaine Anderson, I always need a Blaine solo.
Penultimate episode, I hope the final one's better.
