Zuko Smile!

THE POWER OF AMAZING COMMANDS YOU!!!

Caught Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds with Kura & family yesterday (it was great to see everybody!! :), and it was SMOKIN' HOT AWESOME PURE AURAL AMAZING. Nobuo Uematsu got on stage at the end to sing with the chorus for One-Winged Angel, and he was adorable. Totally into the music (and bouncing up and down, beaming beatifically, in a way that made me realise I didn't realise older men could be so endearing). hackney_ed wrote an amazing (and friends-locked) review here. ♥

AND NOW! ON THE AVATAR FRONT...

The Avatar First Look photos are up on USA Today for Aang and Zuko.

My thoughts on racefail can be summarised as: "Please go watch Ember Island Players." (spoilers) Collapse )

My personal (Zuko-centric) views, by contrast, are quite simple.

Dearly Beloved Zuko, I would love you regardless of the colour of the skin of the actor playing you. I fell in love with your character because you were 200% FLAMING EPIC LAME, EMO, ANGST AND FAIL in the manner I consider Deeply, Intensely Amusing. I would love you whether you were played by the (blond! and blue-eyed!) Jesse McCartney, whether you were played by Dev Patel, or any other Culturally Correct Casting Choice.

And that is all.
