FFF.NET 2.0 Updates and Mr. T pity the new A-Team.
Sunday, June 6, 2010

Spent a good part yesterday and today working on The Blue Sun room. I really should have a formal ChangeLog setup to keep track of all the changes. Maybe later on this week. Anyway, here are the latest changes (as much as I can recall):

- Added individual blue sun item listings.
- Added blue sun item listing sorted alphabetically.
- Added commenting and rating to blue sun items.
- Added fanfic quotes to main page.
- Added donate button to main page.
- User names are now linked to their profiles on main page.

Numerous other little fixes that I can't remember at the moment. See, I need that log.

Some to-dos for next time:

- Link username on blue sun room page to user profile.
- Add user info to blue sun room listing for individual.
- Work on events page.
- Work on restoring on firefly reference database.
- and maybe add the change log.

That's pretty much it right now. More to come.

Read a brief article in the Toronto Sun about Mr. T not liking the new A-Team movie. He thinks there's too much sex and violence, which is to be expected.

The 58 years old Mr. T says, "People die in the film and there's plenty of sex but when we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore."

I think in general, all the TV series nowadays ramped those two things up more than a few notches since the 80's. And if it's not sex and violence, gore is probably the next thing on the list.

This sort of brings me to Starz's 'Spartacus.' Finally finished the season. All I can say it is great. It has everything that Mr. T probably won't like, nudity, sex, violence, and gore. I made a comment on Facebook that I saw more heads fly off gushing corpses in a single episode of 'Spartacus' than I ever did watching network TV. I think I counted 8. If I was mistaken, it's probably because I was distracted by the flying severed limbs.

This may sound bad, but the writing and plotting for 'Spartacus' is so damn good that everything else takes a back seat. Well, the scenes of full frontal nudity caught me off guard a bit, but we're all adults right? I'm sure there are ladies out there who were thankful those scenes.

Anyway, if you can get over the nudity, sex, violence, and gore. I highly recommend that you give 'Spartacus' a go.

BTW, in case you didn't know, Jed Whedon and his wife, Maurissa Tancharoen, are now writing for the series. I'm sure we'll likely see more of Joss' co-horts joing in since the series was created by once 'Angel' scribe, Steven DeKnight.

This preview probably has spoilers, so don't click if you plan to watch the series.
