Default April 21



Update days are here again! The Five-Second Voyager event is over, but you may recall I mentioned that the OC batch wasn't going to be the last one. Indeed it wasn't, for here are two more: Farscape, Season 1 and Angel, Season 4.


The reason for this apparent contradiction is that like Five-Minute Cheese last year, Five-Second Voyager has been so much fun there's no reason not to continue it as an intermittent feature. Whenever I do a fiver for a series I don't normally work with, I find myself wanting to play around with that series more often, but I can't do fivers for all of them; this "five-second" thing is a good compromise. I wanted to hit a couple more of my favourites before moving on, so here they are. (I've also updated the ENT and OC pages with last week's episodes.) Don't be surprised to see more five-seconders eventually.


In other news, I ran a little experiment recently. Read Ringing Pavlov's Bell to find out what it was and how it turned out.


(Note to TripHammered readers: the reason the site's been down recently is that the DNS is changing over. evay expects that to be done sometime today. Server issues... can we relate or can we relate?)

Heh. Nice.

I was only able to read about half of Farscape Season 1, since I've only watched that much of it. But I'll read more of it as I watch the episodes

Do you know, the only Easter egg I put on my site I actually announced, and in over two years only one person has found it? (We're still having DNS problems so you likely won't get through if you go to look for it now.)

Favorite bits from the Farscape stuff:
Quote:
Matala: No I'm not.
Crichton: You're messing with the flow of time! Wait, you're not what?
Matala: Messing with the flow of time.
Crichton: Okay then. ....Hey!


Crichton: Two, three, five... they're slashing out the prime numbers! They're showing us they're intelligent!
Rygel: Then why are they -- ow! -- making the slashes in my -- ow! -- chest?
Crichton: To show us they're really intelligent.
And from the Angel stuff:
Quote:
Angelus: Hey, it's Faith! Hey Beast-Boy, why don't you go attack her, with your unguarded back to me?
Beast: Sounds g-- GAK!
The Sun: All right! Time to grill me some vampires!
Faith: Wait a minute. Did you just save the city?
Angelus: Son of a --! I killed a guy! That's supposed to be evil!
Faith: Hey, the road to Heaven is paved with bad intentions.

Haven't read the Angel five-seconders (haven't actually seen any of season 4), but the 'Scape one was brilliant, though you deserve a good Lynching for Five-Second "That Old Black Magic". That joke was just awful. :P

Interesting idea with the article by the way, even if I am now slightly worried that you're secretly programming our minds for your own amusment.

Argh. I really don't understand why this keeps happening -- seems to be something to do with the "go to unread" icon (the one next to the thread title).

Ovular is kinda difficult to slip into conversation. I can't really be the only one, can I?

^Nah, I was the first, but I didn't know how to put it in a sentence.

Mind you, Zeke told me about it, so it's not exactly fair. It was funny though. :P

Finally! Yes, folks, there's an Easter egg, and "Ovular" was the code word. Well done, Arzosah!

Damn it, I thought there'd be one, looked through the three content pages and didn't find anything.

(I did think later, "hey, I should check the news page as well", but I wasn't at the computer and forgot.)

(Arzosah, however, is still the first to find this egg unassisted. I let PHJ know there was one because the subject matter is a favourite of his.)
