I have a lot of feelings. This is tl;dr and image heavy, a vague attempt to ensure things aren't lost in the vast ocean of Tumblr.

+ While I still have many feelings about the rebootylicious DCnU (most of them involve Oracle; one of these days I'll put together all my comments everywhere on this topic), there's one thing that never fails to cheer me up: TIM HAS WINGS NOW. TIMMY WILL FLYYYYYYY, LIKE A BIRD IN THE SKY.

And then there's always the Steph as Oracle comic that I keep looking at every now and then.

+ I'm heartbroken about the Birds of Prey (whyy can't we have the real team and Renee along with it, why do Hawk and Dove have a book), I'll admit I like the September solicit:

BIRDS OF PREY #1
Written by DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI
Art and cover by JESUS SAIZ
On sale SEPTEMBER 21 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
One is wanted for a murder she didn’t commit. The other is on the run because she knows too much. They are Dinah Laurel Lance and Ev Crawford – a.k.a. Black Canary and Starling – and together, as Gotham City’s covert ops team, they’re taking down the villains other heroes can’t touch. But now they’ve attracted the attention of a grizzled newspaper reporter who wants to expose them, as well as a creepy, chameleon-like strike team that’s out to kill them.


It's intriguing. Who knows, maybe Barbara will show up soon, once things settle down in her book? And Huntress, obviously.

+ Glee S2 premieres here in a few days, so the channel airing it made this promo:

I ♥ the mash-up.* The Bollywood comparison is apt, although I do think Glee would have to work a lot harder if it were ever to match up to the mainstream Hindi melodrama at its best, where the comics plotlines and serious plotlines don't feel like two different stories and where the songs are really that good.

* Yes, that's 'Character Dheela' from Ready. Which, BTW, I watch last weekend and dear god - watch it only if you're fluent in Priyadarshanese. And preferably after consuming a lot of alcohol.

Enough moaning about comics, let me tell you about my weekend, flist. That is to say, spam you with photographs. large-ish images under cut )

If this preview of Batgirl 15 isn't the cutest thing ever, I don't know what is. I won't even complain about the lack of Cassandra. ILU BATGIRL ♥

PS: Masterful summation of 70 years of Bat-history, I must say, albeit with the GLARING OMISSION of Cass (all the more ludicrous because Cass and Steph are friends, FFS).

Slightly belated Diwali wishes to all. I only took about 300 or so photos yesterday. *facepalm*

The Cowardly Dog is nudging me with her nose because I happened to make the mistake of mentioning 'go' and 'chain', and that, in Cowardly Dogspeak, is 'we will now go out for a walk.' Even if it is 11 AM, and we never go out for walks at this hour.

House 7.03 was surprisingly enjoyable. spoilers )

+ I have recently discovered that my camera can, in fact, focus manually, thanks to my sister (since I was too stupid to figure it out), and have been playing with the feature ever since. It is hard, S. (BFF with a bad case of Obsessive Photographing Disorder) is a genius for doing such great stuff with it. I admit, since my sole focus while taking photos is usually 'ooooo pretty' and 'ooooo bright colours', I tend to forget about technique and finesse and other such things.

ooooo bright colours )


+ I have not watched the latest House and last week's Nikita yet. Humph.

+ I have, however, watched Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, and [profile] applesred, everything I heard was true: it's a great movie, packed with action and Diana is wonderful in it. It really felt more like an ensemble movie, with great roles for Diana and Big Barda, who have an absolutely EPIC battle scene in Apokolips. And, of course, Supergirl, who is in fact given more agency in the movie than she'd been in the comic (even if it meant we missed out on a fabulous Diana blocking Darkseid's Omega Beams with her bracelet scene because of the changes made). Also, Superman punches fire. Batman and Superman also have some adorable bickering, with Diana chipping in at times. In fact, the GREATEST SCENE in the movie involves Diana elbowing Bruce for being Mr. Crankypants, I don't have words for how adorable it is.

GREATEST. EVER. )

+ I was really missing Cara and Kahlan today. A good thing I had [personal profile] hibernate's [profile] lotsbigbang to read, which is so fabulous that I inhaled the story and am now mostly speechless and overwhelmed. Overwhelmed with ~feelings. So please do yourselves a favour and go and read Confession, and Other Trouble a Mord'Sith Can Get Into. It is about Cara and Kahlan having a lot of feelings. I have hearts in my eyes. ♥_♥

I appear to have signed up for [livejournal.com profile] hmd_rareathon, and my prompt just calls out for House/Wilson/Cuddy. Hmm.

I'm supposed to research about fertilizers. I will, some time soon. *procrastinates*

Prologue: The university campus is in the middle of a forest. That is to say, it was built in an uninhabited bush forest area on the Delhi ridge (Environment Issues LALALA) in the 1970s, and much of the forests have been retained till this date. Which means you run into all kinds of animals every day. Peacocks, in particular. Neel gais (the Indian bluebuck; there's a popular university myth: if you happen to spot a neel gai in your early days on campus, you're in it for the long haul). Rabbits. Snakes.

Yesterday was clearly my Animal Spotting Day. Not only did I spot (and failed to photograph; they have this uncanny thing about noticing cameraphones) as many as five peacocks hanging out together (usually there's only one or two at a time) on my way back from the library, but I also spotted a male neel gai hanging out with a couple of female neel gais in the short-cut back to my hostel. To top that, I finally have proof that we do, in fact, have foxes (as opposed to Fox, the dog) in the forest. Because I heard them howling at about four in the morning, and once more at about five, just when I was about to go to sleep, exactly the way you would occasionally hear them in my tiny hometown at night in my childhood (I have no idea if they are still there now). The peacocks, naturally, also chimed in, and the result was…well, rather scary. I think I heard a strangled Peacock Meow at one point (peacocks meow. they really do. it's not a Cat Meow, but it very definitely is a meow). Did the foxes kill a peacock? Maybe one of the tiny baby peacocks? Do foxes kill peacocks? Or were they just chiming in because they could and that strangled meow was something else altogether? Maybe one of them had a cough. 'Tis the season. Also of note is the fact that the foxes seemed to be in the forest around our shortcut. Which is a route I take everyday, because it's a short-cut. Never at night (except that one time when we were returning at four o’ clock. but there were four of us, and it was full moon), but still. Disturbing.




Here's a peacock, in someone's yard
