Hahaha, I almost spit fruit cocktail all over my keyboard when I saw your pictures! I sense a tad bit of bitterness :)

Tokyo Pink said...

Haha, don't ruin your keyboard! I'd be terribly sorry. I find it more humorous than bitter really. But, it is true, I have no valentine this year.

Eh, it's good for you! You seem like a pretty sharp young woman, and cute as a button to boot; There are a million guys who would love to be your valentine. This is the year you develop empathy for all those crazy cat ladies out there in the world! :)

Think, without a valentie you can stay home, order a pizza and watch Firefly!

Now THAT'S a valentine's day worth remembering, my friend!

Tokyo Pink said...

Yay! A Firefly lover! I love Firefly! Sigh, I only wish it had lasted a little longer. :-) Stay tuned for tomorrow's Anti-Valentine's day post. Don't worry; it's hilarious! :-)

I'm looking foreward to the anti-valentines day post all ready!

Yeah, it was too bad about that movie though, I can't believe they killed Wash and Book. That was low, man, why did they do that?

Tokyo Pink said...

Well, it says something to courage and closure when creators are able to kill of their characters. They know it's not going to come back on.(As much as we'd like.) It gives closure. One shouldn't be afraid to kill of one's characters.

WHAT?!?! O NO YOU DID-NT! No way, it was over anyways, they all should have lived happily ever after, that's closure! :)

Happily ever after isn't just a fairy tale, it's REAL, Lil' Ms. Tokyo-Pink! But happy endings are like Never-Never Land - you've got to BELIEVE!

Tokyo Pink said...

I never said I didn't believe in happily ever after. It shows weakness of a director to not have the courage to be able to kill of characters. JKR killed Dumbledore; Tolkien killed of Boromir.

I also never said that I prefer the Firefly-verse with Wash and Book dead. I don't. I love Wash! He was one of my favorite characters! He's hilarious.

I also do not see the world through rose-colored glasses. I believe in happy endings. I believe they take a lot of work and sacrifice. Sometimes the work and sacrifice pays off. Sometimes it doesn't.

Dumbledore and Boromir were both in the middle of a story and dying for a cause! Wash got hit with a spear like a dope?! What was that all about? That wasn't important, it was like Macabre Slapstick!

Tokyo Pink said...

You seem unable to appease. Why don't you write your own ending or, perhaps just stop watching? After all, the dear Joss did direct it.

There are things that piss me off, like the ending to the novel "Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult. We should be happy that there was something in that fiction to inspire such feelings. I would not have been sad for Wash's death had I not loved the character.

Haha! I'm not unappeasable! It's his ball and he can take it and go home if he wants. I still loved the story. I just thought it was a poopy thing to do right at the end, like he was sticking it to the fans for not keeping the show going.

Tokyo Pink said...

It wasn't the fans fault at all. They did all they could to change Fox's mind. It was all Fox. In the words of my professor: "It was a dark day when the suits at Fox shut it down as part of a vendetta against Joss Whedon the producer..."

While I'm not sure of the truth there, there was truth in the fact that it got many terrible reviews. Tim Goodman with the San Francisco Chronicle called Firefly a "forced hodgepodge of two alarmingly opposite genres just for the sake of being different."

:P Who reads movie(or tv show) reviews anyways? I've got my own brain that works quite nicely; I'll make up my own mind on what's good and bad. Firefly was an awesome show and Serenity was a good flick. I just didn't like that body count. If he needed two corpses to satisfy his vision, my vote would be for Jayne and the Doctor! :)
