I'm doing clothes shopping for the island and I AM SO UNCOMFORTABLE SPENDING THIS MUCH MONEY. And I have to go spend more! D: I mean, on the plus side I now have some bitchin' shirts, and new shoes, and more than two pairs of pants, and socks without holes, and UNDERWEAR without holes, and oh god I should really stop being so frugal shouldn't I. Anyway I found out that a shirt I have been longing after for like a year or two is out of print and I snagged one of the last in my size, so that was excellent. And I got some classy robot shirts. I have never been really into T-shirts but I am trying this "layering" thing I guess. Which means I need shirts to go over my shirts, but I recently realized this means I can wear PLAID. HELL YES. Plaid all the time! So what if it clashes with Optimus, stfu. Anyway I honestly have no idea where to find plain heavyweight button-ups. I have one made by Wrangler, so I guess I will google them.

Alright I gotta run down to Target and see if they have rain boots that will fit me, and also a bunch of other incidentals (nail clippers!). Also, food. D: STARVING. And anxiety is rising again because I feel like I'm forgetting stuff even though I'm getting so much done. Sigh.

I'm also still spazzing over the new trailer. DAMNIT BAY. I don't want to be excited about your shitty movies! But robots! Tentacles! Intense soundtrack! And yet, even with that brief glimpse, I can already tell they were scraping as much awesome as they could and coming up slightly short. Oh noes, serving time for treason! Come on, at least threaten him with PUNISHABLE BY DEATH. And the overly dramatic "one day blah blah where were you when they took over the world" oh just stfu, I can already tell that's a throwaway DRAMATIC MOMENT line which will be accompanied by a slow-pan low-angle shot with lensflare from the backlighting. Also, Sam is still yelling OPTIMUUUUUHS way too much. Also, I cannot fucking wait to see how fucking racist this one is, you guys. And I bet Optimus will puke at some point! Or fart. Farting is HILARIOUS. And all the Decepticons will die. ALL OF THEM. Especially Barricade, because Bay is bitter that he escaped death the first two times around. His death will be strangely gooey and anticlimactic. Also Mikaela's disappearance will be covered with a quick "oh yeah broke up" line in the beginning and then never be mentioned again. And there will be no moral ambiguity about the robot war, because OBVIOUSLY one side is right and the other is just fighting because they're evil and not due to any actual reason. Also 80% of the cast will be comic relief. The other 10% will be Shia yelling NONONONONONONONONO.

okay I have sufficiently de-excited myself OH GOD SHOCKWAVE RIDING A MAGNIFICENT TENTACLE BEAST LIKE A CHARIOT OH GOD SO EXCITED AGAIN DAMNIT

I'm quite pissy to know who the woman that pissed Optimus off is.

But I'm possessive of the rare 3rd season character I loved.

SHOCKIE! OMFG! HOW SO AWESOME?! This is my SHOCKIE of the COMICS! The one who made MEGATRON his BITCH!

I'm actually avoiding most information about the movie so I have no idea what you're talking about~ :D Like, I know that Shockwave is apparently running this apocalypse, and you and someone else have hinted that he's overthrowing Megatron or some such, which... disappoints me greatly. My first Shockwave was TFA, so. I will try to focus on his awesome tentacle-monster-lovingness and avoid thinking about the not-loyal-aughness. I know intellectually that there's room enough for all interpretations but MY SHOCKWAVE AHHHHH D:

Hey, TF has a history of women who are more badass than the men, including Mikaela - maybe this lady is our badass woman for this movie! :D ...yeah I don't buy it either.

I'm not sure re: Megatron. I just think Shockie's taking over the planet! :-)

It certainly seems to be a popular theory! Everyone who has mentioned his motivation seems to assume he's overthrowing Megatron. I figured it was just a spoiler I didn't know about, but I just checked with my spoiler person and she says it's not, so. D: idk either.
