i'm good!

The End...

With the exception of graduation related activities, this is my final day at Waterford High. My last day of high school. It comes not a moment too soon.

I just finished my Chemistry II final. The only one I had to take. Personally, I think I would have preferred a full frontal lobotamy. Mrs. Holmberg felt it neccessary to encourage me, saying that I'm really a good student who just has trouble doing math. I know this, trust me. I suppose more study would have helped some, but having a life is highly detrimental to doing so.

Today, I have to go to work, but tomorrow is my first day of unofficial freedom from this place. Tomorrow, I can sleep late, stay out late, and since it'll be Wed., no work. It sounds so incredibly good right now. My brain hurts today...

I no longer have to be embarrassed by saying I'm still in high school. For all intents and purposes, I'm through with it. All I can say is it's about time.

And you thought "Power Rangers" had a bad theme song...

It can't possibly come close to the terror that is the opening theme of "The Big O", a show which, otherwise, I have only positive things to say. It consists of crazy, psychodelic swirling colors, black silhouettes of things like the main character, the mech (The Big O), and the main character's car. Meanwhile, the chant in the back is "Big O..Big O Big O Big O...Big O". It's so bad, you can't help but laugh.

The reason the theme is so bad must be due to the fact the rest of the show went over budget, because it's so well done. The animation is slick, stylish, and dark. If you were to combine "Batman Beyond" with "Neon Genesis Evangelion", you'd get "The Big O"'s style.
The end theme, despite Pat Brad and my sister's objections, is quite nice. It's got a very intersting plot line too. In some ways, it reminds me again of Batman, Eva, and a little Dark City (A movie I highly recommend if you haven't seen it yet).

Apparently, this show has run on Cartoon Network in English. I picked up the fansubs from work. Whichever way you see it, I have to recommend it. Then you'll understand:
