First day of Obama as President...

... Or as I like to think of it:
George W. Bush's first day as an unemployed American!

Ah-hah, he made his American bed, now he has to sleep in it. W having to slum it after 8 years of pretending to run the country. Well, all right, maybe he isn't going to be hurting for money, but I can dream.
Oh yes, I can dream.

It's good to see Obama has begun to limit lobbyist powers, working on better ethics and openness, and is has sought McCain's advice. It is a good sign to have the President actually working with the other party's candidate while also attempting to get the entire nation off to an amazing start.

Heroes Toys

I was informed via email today that the Future Hiro Nakamura action figure I ordered was shipped.
It was shipped at 11:41:01 today, so why isn't it here yet?
I was hoping for it to have arrived 3 days ago, but apparently I expected too much. I guess we have to wait for time travel to expand it's abilities into postal services... and action figures.
Disappointment? Only a little.


Obama Inauguration!

Hurray for the INOCULATION of JOE BAMA!
Who's this Joe Bama anyway???

Just kidding.

Seriously, this celebration of change in political leadership is a big deal. Hopefully the inspiration Obama radiates leads this country to an all time high, in both economics and in the general atmosphere of America's well-being.
Of course it will take years of plodding to achieve goals for everyone. There will still continue to be trouble, continuing turbulence. Life will still be a struggle, but things WILL get better. It just takes a lot of hard work and an even larger amount of time. Patience is a necessity in this era, but given the state of this country, we can definitely afford to be methodical and slow moving.
Change happens. I anticipate the future Obama paints. He invites us all to participate. We all need to lend a hand in its creation.
Step by step change will happen and we are all partly responsible for it.
Support the change for good.

I eagerly await what lies ahead.

Heroes: Duel: notes and thoughts

AH, Finally going back to doing some Heroes posts that, as far as I can tell, no one actually reads all of. Which is quite all right. Nobody listens to me in other aspects of life either.

I Just a bunch of miscellaneous thoughts:

How is it that Arthur Petrelli died with a bullet through the head. Maybe it is the destruction of whatever gland/organ that controls the healing? Pituitary? Pineal? Hypothalamus?
That also leads me to wonder, when Sylar left and magically showed up in Odessa in a very short time later, the Haitian was going to follow Sylar, and disappeared.

I also noticed that a bunch of built up stories were all reversed, Sylar is bad again, and not a Petrelli. Nathan is back to being a selfish dousche. Peter is a powered. With Nathan proposing to the President(I think it may be the guy that played Warf in Star Trek), I believe the future may be changing back to the Five Years Gone type. Or a similar type future. Could Nathan have been replaced in the time from the Odessa fire to the Proposal?

Mohinder has become a non-monstrosity. Does he still have powers- perhaps the solution provided a remedy for scales, and the power at the same time. Could he also make more of the Formula for powers with his catalyst induced bath? And what ever happened to the Shanti virus? Can he simulate that as well?

Anyway, he now has a semi-powerful backer with connections through Tracy. Who is also probably on the run from Nathan's Proposal.

In the series 3 future Hiro was Amped up(red electrical blast), WHY? Does an underground supply come from Mohinder?
That also makes me think about how they have been eliminating potential time travel. It can only be done now with Daphne and Ando together.

Character deaths: Are the fire makers dead? One would think form previous mentions that they are immune to fire. So did rubble kill them off For Sure?

Sylar- Is obviously going to get better. Step 1) remove glass shard. Step 2) Apply tiny bandage.
And all is well. I believe he may yet prove to be somewhat good. He let Peter live because he had nothing Sylar wanted. And in the Five Years Gone I think he told Claire he may have enough powers after hers. Not too sure about that though. He also from the looks of things didn't bother taking any Level 5 residence people's abilities.

That also reminds me, the puppet master guy fight should have been so much better.
Sylar: "Do you really think you can control me?"
P.M.: "Yes"
Sylar: truth power activates a confirmation.
cut to commercial
P.M.: proceeds to have Meridith burn Sylar and Herself, while having Sylar systematically cut himself apart. Then watches patiently, with joy as he heals, only to repeat the process.

Parkman's powers- Has he somehow made a shade of someone(Usutu)? He has seen him a couple times since death, so is it an extension of his own power (seeing the ghost of a person) or is he keeping a portion of the person in his mind? Or is it just Usutu working from beyond the grave?

That's all for now...


First post of 2009

Sorry to anyone that might follow my stuff, as I have been overwhelmed with life and will be back on the blog bandwagon very soon. The next post will, more than likely, be on the last episode of Heroes(Duel). Maybe I can drag out some old pictures or art/sketches...
Who knows?
