Son Of ARGH. - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Son Of ARGH.
Furnace Guy came back, caught the furnace in the act this time, poked around and scratched his head for long enough for me to sort out all the crap magneted to the fridge, and then said that it was the squeaking noise that had originally called my attention to the problem doing it -- which is of course an Expensive Bit, and Furnace Guy's Parts Guy mayormaynot be available tomorrow to get a replacement for that. So, Idunno. Since FG hadn't been available first thing this morning we decided to carry through on previous plans for The Hobbit at the cheapest showing (10am), and when we got back in at nearly 3pm the thermostat read 62, so I don't think we'd be in imminent danger of anything more than Extreme Crankiness if furnace continues uncooperative, but the crankiness, as I say, is Extreme.

(Hobbit, BTW, left me as queasy as Hunger Games had; I'm starting to wonder if it's to do with 3d films downshifted to 2d, or WTH. It suggests I'll be seeing even fewer movies than I do now, because if the Spectacle-Based ones that are the ones mostly worth seeing in theaters are all going to be like this, then they can keep it...)

And yes yes yes to the swoopy soupy thing that you felt. I watched the Hobbit in 48/3D ultra thingy and comparing it with Life Of Pi it looked somewhat FLAT even though it was New Zealand. Agreeing also with your following entry, mistimed reply here due to LJ technoflop.

Cumbersmaaug HEEEE!

Happy New ah you get the rest...

Dunno, Noel usually has big probs with 3D movies, and had no problem with the standard frame rate 2D Hobbit.

I think my issue may be with the way that films are laid out for 3D; I kept getting thrown out of the flow of the action thinking, "oh, this shot was really designed for 3D", so it could be something at the level of the WE ARE GOING TO DO SOMETHING COOL AND SWOOPY NOW shot-setups that my brain is stuttering at. (I also have trouble with FPSs.) Any time one is noticing the cinematography instead of just rolling with it, that's probably notsogood...
