Got paid by Dataflex.  It only took 2 months and some legal threats.  Now I just have to pay off the last half of my university fees and I'm clear.

It's just been one of those weeks where nothing has really happened.  I mean, I don't mind that kind of thing, but it's hard to talk to you when nothing is going on.  It's like Seinfeld, but with less Kramer.  Or post-Seinfeld Kramer with less racism.

I'm trying to schedule a couple of holidays in February so that the flights connect and I don't end up spending too much money.  That's about it.

So how was your day?

Season 4 Breaking Bad Finale

Holy. Shit.

I'm sorry Mad Men, but you just got bumped from best TV show ever.

Two more years!

The Simpsons will run until season 25, at least.  At least it's a nice round number.  Unfortunately, that means the bad will far outnumber the good episodes, making that rumoured Fox animation cable channel a bit of a bore.  Anyway, one shouldn't dwell on the bad.

Oh happy day!

The Simpsons will finally end!  It should have ended about 10 years ago when the show was more or less riding high, but I guess any time is a good time.  It'll end either this season, or I'll get a truncated 24th season with a proper finale.  I imagine they'll still make another movie, which would be fine.,62930/

Music-related post.

I completely forgot that there's a new Mastodon album out.  I think they are probably the best metal band of the last decade.  This isn't from the new album, but it is an iTunes bonus, so I guess that's close enough.

Just so you know...

Way back in the long, long ago when I was a kid, I used to watch a lot of 80s cartoons.  The usual shit like Transformers, MASK, Dino Riders, GI Joe, etc.  I occasionally caught He-Man on TV, but I never really watched because I thought it was shit

However, there was one He-Man episode that affected me in a way I'd never experienced before, nor have ever felt since.  Watching this episode and grasping its lesson at a tender young age was like a diamond bullet shattering my brain and crystallising my entire being.  I have spent years trying to find this episode on the internet, and only recently have I discovered it again.  I feel that I should share this with all of you so you can understand how I felt all those years ago and how I feel now after watching it after so long.
