The Cape Series Finale

Eric Balfour tweeted something yesterday about how he was pissed that people were saying that Summer Glau is a show killer because The Cape is ending their season. So this is the first time I’m hearing that the show is over and what made me mad was that they didn’t even tell us that on NBC the last time it aired.

I get on Twitter this morning and scroll down in my Celebrities list to see what I missed and see a tweet from NBCTheCape:

@NBCTheCape: The Cape’s finale will be up TONIGHT (3/11) at MIDNIGHT on NBC.com! @TVGuide has a preview (WARNING: some spoilers) http://bit.ly/gvHohu

So I guess it is official, not only is The Cape ending but they have the series finale ready for us to watch. Wait, what? Midnight? On NBC.com? What? You mean I gotta go to The Cape page on the NBC website to watch the series finale? At midnight? What? Why can’t they find a time slot for it on tv?

Well, I guess I should be so lucky that they are allowing us to see the series finale unlike ABC who made us wait for months before they would give us the final episodes of Pushing Daisies.

Well this sucks big time because I really loved The Cape. I read that TV guide article that @NBCTheCape tweeted and it says that The Cape creator wanted to kill off a character by the season finale but ratings slipped and they went from 13 to 10 episodes to finale. Hey, the ratings didn’t slip from me because I watched it faithfully every week after Chuck.

And let me respond about Summer Glau, she is not a show killer. Just because every show she’s been on has ended doesn’t mean jack. It’s not her fault and those trolls who said that need to go back under their bridge and stop spreading hate about her. She’s a very good actress, I mean look at her work in Firefly. I was totally convinced that her character was batshit crazy which is what they were going for. If she does another show I will definitely watch it.

I don’t normally wait for a show to air on a website so I’ll have to keep chanting in my head “The Cape on NBC.com tonight at midnight” so I don’t forget.

This really sucks but I’m happy that we’re getting a finale episode at least.

Twitter Karma

Awhile ago I talked about using Twiends for following and getting followers on . When you follow people you get credits depending on how many credits people are offering. The credits you receive end up being given to other people for following you. It’s a pretty neat process for raising your Twitter followers.

However, not all of those people you followed are going to reciprocate. That’s bad karma. I follow everyone who follows me and when I see that someone didn’t reciprocate it frustrates me. There wasn’t much I could do about it because I didn’t know who I was following that wasn’t followingme back.

Until now. I found a website with a service called Your Twitter Karma that will help you find out who is following you and who you are following. You click the twitter button to sign in with your twitter account, it asks you to deny or allow them to connect to your twitter then when you click allow it signs you in. You click Whack and it loads every person you follow and your followers.

The first thing you see is a summary.

See the 2 on the left are people who I follow but as you can see they never followed me back. The 2 on the right I follow and they follow me. This website cannot bulk unfollow because that violates Twitters . So, that means you have to look at every person one at a time. You can click their name and their twitter page loads in a new tab so you can see whether or not you wanted to continue to follow them.

In my situation I didn’t want a bulk unfollow because I want to keep following celebrities who are never going to follow me.

Unfollowing those who don’t follow you levels the playing field though because if I am following 1461 people, I want 1461 people following me too. With the exception of the celebrities of course but you get the picture. Although the amount of people following me is well below that 1400 number so the number of who I am following is going to drop dramatically soon but over time I’m sure that will go up again with Twiends.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this new bit of information that I have found.

My New Addiction – Twimbow

I’ve said in my previous Twimbow posts, I’ve never been a “Twitter” person, well, I said Twit. I’ve been staring at Twimbow all day. Now that I know about lists I feel comfortable because I’m not pressured to look at 50 tweets a second.

I’m also learning color coding. See the image below, the colored boxes above all the tweets. That is an awesome feature because now I can give each group of celebrities (and friends) a certain color. Like all the Bravo people have Orange, all the E! people have purple, all the SyFy people have lime green… Friend tweets are all yellow. But this will allow me to filter who I want to look at as far as celebrities and friends go.

I’m having way more fun than any person should with Twitter lol.

@Twimbow: New Revelations

Well I have finally figured it out.  I guess because I don’t use Twitter that often I never learned that there are lists that you can add people to.  Twimbow allows you to use your middle column to view only people in a list that you choose.  DUH!  So naturally I am making a list and only putting in people I really want to follow, friends and celebrities.

So, I can stop blocking people, which I stopped doing when I learned that blocking equals unfollowing followers.  A huge Oops.

Also the 3rd column in the Twimbow website is a search window.  Notice the magnifying glass?  The search area above that allows you to type a specific persons name to look at all their tweets and mentions.

Notice the column on the left (which is the middle column in the website) says Celebrities, that’s my new Celeb list.  And notice the magnifying glass in the column on the right that says Twimbow?  I get it now.

Now that I have this new information I will be a very happy Twimbow user.  I’m very excited because I finally get it now.  What can I say, I guess I get stupid in my old age but I learn… eventually.
