About my collections

My collection can beat up your collection.

Currently reading whatever my daughter wants read to her. Hopefully one day soon she'll figure out how to read & I can read for myself again. Not that I don't enjoy reading to her, but I miss reading for me.

"@VT - Oh yeah, that bugged the hell out of me too about the ending of Dark Skies. Plus the "twist" that wasn't at all surprising (or necessary imo) didn't help matters either. I know Alan Partridge "

About me

A few notes to my fellow Listal users:


- If we have NOT interacted on here in some way (an exchange of votes, comments, messages, etc.) then I will DENY your friend request. That said, I'm always open to finding new people that share my interests, I just don't like adding people as friends when I have no idea who they are.
- I used to stop by everyone's profile to say thanks for votes, but lately it seems like people don't care much about that. So if you vote for something of mine, just know that it's appreciated & I thank you. I may still occasionally say thanks, but I'm not going to make a frequent habit of it anymore.
- I will definitely drop by your profile to discuss comments, unless you don't have a comments section where I can do so. In such cases I will most likely reply in a comment that follows yours.
- PLEASE only leave me comments to check out lists that you know I'd be interested in. And for the record I'm NEVER interested in lists of "hot" people, unless there's some content mocking them or something to make them interesting. I can find eye candy just fine if I want to, thanks.

Thanks for the list vote and the comment. I would highly recommend The Oblong Box. Edgar Allen Poe & Vincent Price, what more could you ask for? :-)

Of course you can follow me on Twitter, that's sort of the point. I'm over at https://twitter.com/VierasTalo and my tweets are about 50/50 between English and Finnish. Finnish tweets pertain mostly to, well, Finnish stuff.

I also watched Black Mirror a few months back. I like it, though the concept to each episode seems more juicy than the execution. The second episode is great though. A solid example of gamification in real-world appliances. I still have yet to watch the Christmas episode though.

I've known about Birdman for ages, it's just that all I know is that it's supposed to be really really effin' good and everything I've seen people rave about it thus far has certainly kept up that trend.

Now, I have no doubts about whether or not I'd like Why Don't You Play In Hell? because Shion Sono is by far like among the top-5 Japanese directors I know of today. That being said, I have like three or four films of his in my shelf, unwatched, so I'll try working through that stuff before I go anywhere near something new from him.

Thank you! It is good to be back on Listal, I'm looking forward to tracking my movies again in 2015. I really missed that this past year, and there's something nice about being in a movie theater a couple times a month that I missed too.
I'm doing much better than I was, lots of stuff was going on this past 12 months, but that's life! I'm in my last semester of studies and I'm looking forward to graduating. I get a bachelor's degree in May and a teaching certificate in June, if not earlier. It's gonna be so great! I hope you're doing well too. It's weird seein who is here still and who isn't.

Man, people are still voting for my shit....

Oh yeah I'm being medically discharged from the army. I get a pretty big payout. I'll come back eventually. I might do more writing in the interim. Might. But yeah.
