watch around 3:50 in this video. also, if you haven't seen this whole cartoon of The Hobbit, i really recommend it. it can be kind of hard to find, though.

also, this is a really good part:

i'm not actually a hundred percent sure that i spent a month playing video games in 2011, but it's likely that i spent somewhere around that, which, in retrospect, is kind of gross.

i dunno. a month translates to about 730 hours, and i put i think about 140 into Pokemon White, 125 (and seven seconds! i'm so bummed that my save wasn't a round number when i retired my first character. also, i probably put more than that, what with console freezes, a new character, unsaved exploits that i decided to undo, etc.), and a bunch of hours into Borderlands, and i beat Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, Portal 1 and 2, Bioshock, Dragon Age: Origins, PMD2, and i've also played a whole lot of other video games that i don't remember right now.

maybe in 2012 i should actually resolve to play less video games than last year, i don't know. also, how did i even find time to play so much video games? i was in at least one class both semesters of 2011, i went to California for a week, where i didn't play any video games, i limited my video game playing during Lent, and i was working a decent amount the whole year through. and it's not like i missed out on too much sleep. interesting.

also, you may have noticed that this is another one of my 'Dear Margot' comics! that's because this last Saturday, January 21, was the third anniversary of i'm here to see if you can fly with broken wings! hooray!

anyway, this is #309

in case you don't know, Beauty and the Beast is currently in the theatres in 3D. i'm pretty pumped about it. i haven't yet seen it, but i love Beauty and the Beast, and seeing it in the theatre will be way awesome.

a couple days ago, some friends and i celebrated the tenth anniversary of my all-time, number one, top most favourite movie ever, The Royal Tenenbaums! so here's the cast of my comic recreating the cover of the dvd.

also, The Royal Tenenbaums is a really male character-heavy movie, so i put Archie the owl as Raleigh St. Claire, even though we haven't seen him in any comics for a long while.

i've never in my life used a Qwilfish. i feel like it's too silly looking, and not in a cute way. if they gave it a hardcore evolution, i feel like it would get a huge spike in popularity.
