What are you people doing here, it's like 5 in the morning!
I'm only here because I had to pull an all-nighter (which is shaping up to be an all-dayer as well).
At least the repair process for this netbook is easy, unlike the monstrosity I had to deal with Thursday.

I fucking love Adventure Time.
Seriously, it's possibly one of my favourite animated series of all time.
I see a lot of people not knowing exactly why they like it but I don't have that problem personally - I know exactly why I love it.
For me it's the sheer creative exuberance of the thing that's the real draw. Finn and Jake are likeable and quite subtly complex characters who are fun to watch just doing things, the land of Oo has literally almost anything you could imagine in it - undead Lich Kings, cities of thieves, living mountains, secret towns of wizards, undead lawyers, snow giants, demonic penguins, evil deer people, psychic tandem war elephants, tiny villages of living houses, whywolves, underground fish people, parallel timelines, giant fighting barns, kingdoms of fire elementals and candy people and Abraham Lincoln is the King of Mars. There's a breadth of imagination that you seldom see anywhere else but it's all unified within a largely cohesive world.
The writers are writing for kids but their writing and themes are intelligently presented and mature enough to be appealing to adults as well. There are all kinds of running themes of adolescence, romantic awakening, responsibility, love, parenthood, duty, hope and living with extreme tragedy and loss. It's episodic but there are also overarching plots and subtle stories that can be enjoyed over a more protracted time period.
Above all, it's so fucking happy. I mean, when I first moved the capital and was living in shitty basement apartment doing a crappy job with barely any friends nearby, I watched the first two seasons of Adventure Time a lot because it was better than focussing on my own kind of crappy circumstances. It was a pleasant escape from the drudgery of my day-to-day ennui and I greatly appreciated the relief.
So yeah, I love Adventure Time.

So I kind of want to put a rant here. I mean yeah I could rant in other places but this spot seems to lack most of the complications.
The white and blue also kind of make it rant appealing.
I'm not a fan of ranting though... that and I kind of want to vent by punching someone instead of a ranting in this case.
That would be rude and I would be hitting an old guy in this case so double rude.
Anyway, Today's Lesson: "Giving lots of money to people is a sure way of finding out how much of a jerk they are inside."
Which everyone knows, but seeing it happen sure is something... meh, got to go now. Got to vent.
Venting. Not punching.
Just bought Dark Knight Rises and Bourne Legacy, what to watch first?
Good God man! Why are you slapping a monkey.
