Compliments / Комплименты

Yesterday I've got the most complimentary feedback at all to my Rupert the Crab pattern:

"This is probably the most detailed, best written pattern I have ever seen, and she only charged $4..."

Вчера я получила, наверное, самый большой комплимент моей схеме:

"Это, вероятно, самая подробная, лучшая письменная схема, которую я видела, и она просит за нее только $ 4 ..."

Daisy - In Process

It's still a long way to the finish, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

This flower required from me weeks and weeks of work. I crocheted , unstitched and sewed it back on a few dozen times and still I'm not entirely pleased with the result.

It's amazing, is not it?

It's amazing, is not it? I found it in the net.

Everyone can crochet and knit!

Am I cursed?

What is going on?
I can't crochet petals for my new amigurumi project, the daisy. I Need 10 petals for a daisy.
I already made a diagram, try to crochet according to the scheme - and every time each petal came in a different size. I have already reached a couple dozen of tries.
Is there a curse on those petals?

I'm confused

I find it very difficult to understand these kind of messages:
"You've reached 85% of your unlimited space"

Gamer - the movie review

So, I'm sick again.

I decided to see the "Gamer" movie - of course, because of Dexter. I mean because of Michael C. Hall.

The movie and especially the end of it make me laugh, really laugh.

In russian fandom (fantasy/sci-fi fans society) we have a really well-known character, named "Чорный Властелин", it means "The Dark Lord". This character is the quintessence of all main anti-heroes, a common collective image of all clichés.
Like Dr. Evil or Spector main guy etc'

Why do I talk about this? Because, according to common cliché, during the Last Epic Battle the Main Hero, The Good Guy will be surely defeated. And then The Dark Lord, instead of kill The Good Guy, just begins to explain how and why he won it and what comes next. Of course, while The Dark Lord so passionate talking about it, The Good Guy gathers his forces and kills The Dark Lord.
This scenario has its own chapter in humoristic "Manual for The Dark Lord": Just kill the good guy!"

And in this movie, Gamer, it's ends exactly according to the Dark Lord's script.

The best moment in the movie is, of course, the Ken Castle's song and the dance.

Interestingly, is he singing by himself?
I hope that the actor will not perform only the role of evil heroes in the future.
