Vacation! Woo hoo! Yay!!!!one!
*Grins madly at the world at large*
Well, okay, it's not so much a vacation as a temporary reprieve from midterms, but this week I have about 25% more time to
waste. It's reading break, which means maybe I'll even finally catch up on all the fic I've been grabbing off my flist!
Or, you know, do math or something. Whichever.
I had great, great
fun watching last Wednesday's Smallville (Recruit). But don't worry, I won't spoil anything important.
Objectively, it was probably a pretty meh episode, but they far and above made up for this by filming it at my university. I probably said something already, but it was the weirdest thing - I walked out of math class and all the signs were replaced, and the posters said "Bulldogs" instead of "Thunderbirds," and there were The Daily Planet
dispensing machines hanging out with The Province
and The Globe and Mail
dispensers where I usually grab lunch. Students would take pictures of the newspapers, and then take pictures of the vending machine with a MetU sticker. It was like a gathering of the least competent tourists ever.
It felt like I had somehow wandered into a bad self insertion fic.
They were filming a scene between Chloe and Lois, and every so often they would cut the scene and one of them would adjust their pants. I honestly *don't* know, but it was a little funny. (Filming is done at UBC all the time, but usually the movie people don't leave the props hanging around.)
So *watching* the ep was an experience, but mostly because there'd be an establishing shot of the Library, and then we'd cut to a party inside (they must have missed the giant No Beverages or Food or Noise! This means YOU!
display by the door). Or Chloe would announce she was going to the dorms, walk into the Math Annex, and then come out a couple minutes later looking confused (Perhaps someone might have offered a map).
They cut and pasted in a skyline at the beginning (me: WTF. It's familiar, and yet not!) but otherwise, that's where I spend my days.
Pretty, isn't it?
(Also, naming a character Geoff and then [spoiler]
? Is that meant to be a homage or a comment?)
Some links I gakked from someone: I Ate iPod Shuffle

. I have very few words for how great this clip is, and most of them end in 'eeeee!!' But that would probably ruin the mood. Check it out.
