Eye-con

Abney Park at Dragon*Con!

I *finally* got the damned video to upload! Here's a spur of the moment vid I took at the Abney Park concert at Dragon*Con `08.



They're pretty much the steampunk band, at least for now. The show rocked, and I've grown quite fond of their music these last few weeks while working on my steampunk costume for Necronomicon. BTW, Necro starts today! Version 1.0 of the costume is officially done, though I haven't yet actually put on the entire ensemble at once. If you'll be there, please be sure to check out our merry band of explorers at the Masquerade contest!

I don't remember the last time I was this psyched about Necro! *squee!*

Terminator

"It'll be back..."

I don't have a link yet, but I just learned that, contrary to cancellation rumors, FOX just ordered two more episodes of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles!

Okay, two episodes isn't much, but it's still a good thing. Heck, even if the intent is to give them space to wrap up the series it's still a positive, and much better than an abrupt cancellation.

I haven't been blogging much about the show, partially because I lack the time and partially because I'm not sure what to say. From my standpoint as an uber-picky Terminator fanboi the show is... inconsistent. The general trend in the show has been improvement, but even now in season two they still do things that - to me at least - make no sense in the context of established canon. However, the show is good enough that I keep coming back, which for me is high praise. They're doing some very interesting and novel things with the main characters now, and planting seeds for what could be nifty stuff down the line. Plus, ya' know, looking at Summer Glau for 45 minutes every week is never a bad thing.
