You know... I think I may be becoming a low-level plebe Trekkie. Because this announcement actually made me SQUEE:

Jane Land's Star Trek NovelsRead more... )

I should probably qualify that I'm more a Feminist/Female-Centered Trekkie -- I'm more interested in the female characters than the males. Not that I don't love Spock and Jimmy T. and the other boys on the bridge, but my heart lies with Gaila, Uhura, Chapel, poor misused Yeoman Rand and Number One.

ANYway, if that made you as excited as it did me (I downloaded them both. I don't care, I'll lug my laptop to bed with me to read them!), you can find the links toward the bottom of the Open Doors Project here: http://opendoors.transformativeworks.org/. They also have an awesome collection of vintage Kirk/Spock slash from the 70's, if that's more your thing!

See, this is why OTW is so important! They're working to give fannish history a permanent home so it can't disappear like so many of our great sites did in Buffy fandom. Drop by and see how you can help!

I AM STUDIOUSLY IGNORING ANY AND ALL SPOILERS and/or PREVIEWS FOR ANY AND ALL OF MY SHOWS. I've discovered that my viewing life is much MUCH happier when I don't have any clue what's coming.

~

Hooohahahahahaha! OMG this killed me! My, My Spock Couldn't Let It Go by [livejournal.com profile] zephtastic -- Spock gets addicted to ABBA, and everybody suffers. Except McCoy. LOL Hilarious!!!!

So, you guys all know I share a home with my folks. My mother runs the place like the crazy (but mostly harmless) passive-aggressive tyrant that she is. When the folks are gone, you know what my rebellions are? I leave the dishes in the sink OVERNIGHT! *gasp* I don't scrub out the catbox EVERY TIME I CHANGE IT! OMG! I have nachos for dinner! I stay up until 5 am and sleep all day! I don't get the mail until EVENING! I drink AN ENTIRE POT OF COFFEE ALL BY MYSELF! I AM SUCH A REBEL!

My teenaged self would die of shame. LOL

Copied from [personal profile] spiralleds:

liz_marcs has a post here that will direct you to one of two posts. One is asking for American's experiences with insurance as the system currently exists. The other is asking for those to live in countries with socialized medicine to share their experiences. Share if you can share on either side. And even if you don't have someone to share/don't want to share, it's an eye opening read.

PLEASE LEARN WHAT THE HELL YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT FROM SOMEONE BESIDES RUSH FUCKING LIMBAUGH BEFORE YOU GO RUNNING AROUND SHOWING HOW FUCKING IGNORANT YOU ARE ABOUT THE ISSUE. Kthxbai.

Diversity Icon Meme -- I thought this was interesting. (These are my LJ icons, not DW)

Total # of Icons: 118
# Icons Featuring Female Characters Alone: 15
# Icons Featuring Male Characters Alone: 26
# Icons Featuring Het Pairings (friends or romance): 16
# Icons Featuring F/F Pairings (friends or romance): 6
# Icons Featuring M/M Parigins (friends or romance): 8
# Icons Featuring Mixed Gender groups of 3 or more: 9
# Icons Featuring People/Characters of Color (GAILA DOESN'T COUNT): 17
# Icons Featuring Women of Color (AGAIN, GAILA DOESN'T COUNT): 11

Some counted in more than one category. The rest were divided between text, animals, and symbolic icons. Although only 17 of 118 of my icons feature people/characters of color (which is embarassing), at least the majority of those include WOMEN of color.

Anyway, food for thought.

Hilton wants us to think he's a Top? Hahahahahaha. No. Adam? Certainly.

Now I hope to never have to think about Perez Hilton having sex again as long as I live.

Adam... now that I don't mind one little bit. *G* Especially with a wee little American Idol champion from Arkansas...

~

And in closing: DRAGONS!

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
theantijoss: (Adam - The fist OF ROCK!)
Seriously. The only difference between Adam Lambert now that he's on the Cover of Rolling Stone (*SQUEE*) and before is that he's said what are apparently the magic words : "I'm gay."

I wasn't aware you had to officially make an announcement about your sexuality before you got to carry Teh Ofishul Ghey Card.

But YAY, honey pie signed a record contract with RCA, and that Rolling Stone cover is the hottest thing since Baby! in the Bathtub! Gah.

Click for GAH )

"The Liberation of Adam Lambert"

I don't care -- I just LOVE this kid! He's adorable and fabulous and I ADORE his voice. I promise most days to keep my squee to [livejournal.com profile] lambert_ducks, but today I can't help it! *dances*

Honey pie's gonna be a SUPAHSTAH!

My favorite quote: "I loved it this season when girls went crazy for me. As far as I'm concerned, it's all hot. Just because I'm not sticking it in there doesn't mean that I don't find it beautiful."

HA!

I've seen people talking about how "disappointed" they are that Adam let a 'shroom trip lead him to Idol. (One of the quotes I didn't mention here.) Hell, the only thing I ever did shrooming was curl up on the ground and laugh/cry until I passed out. So good on him for putting a trip to productive use! *G*

Once again from the excellent [personal profile] damned_colonial: Whedon is not a Friggin' Feminist, and Here's Some Reasons Why. She didn't call it that, I did.

Tonight's viewing includes La Mala Educacion or as us Gringos call it, Bad Education -- it's a thriller that has such a twisty plot that it's hard to explain in a line or two, but there are nasty priests, sexy gay guys, and blackmail involved. In Spanish. I need to figure out where I know the lead actor from. His name is Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal (she said as she imdb-ed him), he was in Babel and Motorcycle Diaries -- neither of which I've seen, so those can't be what I'm thinking of... AH! I'm With Lucy -- the one where Baby! plays a dickhead doctor. Gael played one of the other lovers. AND he was in Y tu mama tambien, which I saw a few years ago, and was HAWT. Okay, now I feel better. LOL

How are you guys today?

Wallpaper Meme goinked from [personal profile] cerisaye:

Rules:

01. Post this meme along with your current wallpaper.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

Click to enlarge:


Five sentences? Um... 1. KITTIES! 2. This picture makes me smile every time I see it. 3. KITTIES! 4. They look so sweet, but in reality they're about to have a fight over who gets the chair -- it's a reminder that things are not always the way they seem! 5. KITTIES!

I know, that's cheating, but... KITTIES!

My favorite part of this meme is actually see what programs everybody has on their desktop. *G*

ANOTHER MEME! SHEESH. This one is more serious.

Privilege Meme )

Well, yes, it's important to be aware of how you are privileged, but NOW WHAT? That's what I always end up with coming out of these discussions. I have privilege... and? Can I go back and NOT have gone to summer camp? Should I refuse to accept an apartment or a job because a person of less privilege might not have gotten it? Unpacking my backpack, okay... AND? I don't know. I rarely see any positive effect in this particular discussion. Consciousness is all well and good, but consciousness without a means to act is just spinning your wheels and feeling guilty for things that were not your fault. The best you can do, I guess, is to fight against discrimination however and wherever you can.

DMB Return With Best Album Yet

W00t! That's my boys. However, shouldn't it be "DMB Returns?" It's "Dave Matthews Band," which in this instance is a single entity, not separate individuals. If they named each guy, then it would be "return" -- MIRITE?

But yeah, anyway, this album rocks HARD. I wouldn't say it's their BEST album, but it is fricking amazing! You can check out the album yourself for free at the end of that article, if you're so inclined!

Finally, in closing: THE WORLD NEEDS MORE PORN!



Come get some prompts and MAKE SOME PORN! WHEEEE! Every fandom, every pairing/grouping, any possible kink you can imagine! FUN! (Dudes, there are prompts for Disney Princess porn, for eros sake.) (Weirdly though, my prompts for Buffy/Angel and Fred/Willow didn't make it on there somehow. I guess I'll just have to write them myself!)
theantijoss: (True Blood - Hot Eric Fang)
Oh dear TV Gods help me. I just realized that I love watching Power Rangers RPM on Saturday afternoons. It has nothing to do with the fact that the black ranger is hot and the blue ranger is Scottish and adorable. Shut up.

Jail Bait Ranger, ACTIVATE!

My only questions... so far... are 1.) Why is there only one female Ranger, and 2.) Why do they make her wear a little skirt with her spandex outfit? I mean, it's okay to see the outline of the fellas' business, but not hers? Boo, Rangers! Boo!

I can't believe I just typed that entire section. *sigh* I need to go watch some dirty adult entertainment after that. Oooh! True Blood maybe. Speaking of...







OMG ONLY TWO WEEKS TO GO! *spazzes*

I need to rethink my Dreamwidth icons, since there are so few. *sniff* I tried to upload the same major ones here as at LJ, but the problem with that is, I don't comment nearly as much here at DW. The primary use of icons here is for posting. Now, the issue quickly arises that I need to try to keep the same icons at DW as LJ so when I cross post, they both have the same icon. You can see my problem, can't you?

I AM ADDICTED TO ICONS.

Am I the only person in the universe that doesn't like... no, wait... CAN'T STAND Lady Gaga? All I hear is how awesome and "out of the box" she is, and I'm all... GODDESS PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!

There's a new video starring my darling Alexander Skarsgard (Eric from True Blood) that's pretty damn hot in the beginning, but I can only watch it with the sound off. I mean, I loved electro-pop in the 80's (to some degree, anyway), but something about this chick just... bugs me. Is it that she almost seems like a bad Human League or Debbie Harry rip off? I dunno. Anyway, feel free to mute the sound to see Alex in all his hotness.

Oh, a couple of things I wanted to mention: 1.) I started a total Adam Lambert Fangirl LJ, so my squeeing wouldn't get TOO annoying around here. Right now it's mostly a repository for favorite pics, videos, and rants about how stupid people are about sexuality, but if you've got squee, feel free to friend: [profile] lambert_ducks. If we're not on familiar terms, just post some squee in the public post. *G* 2.) I've got a sticky post at the top of my LJ listing the movies I'm watching this year, categorized as "General" and "Horrorwatch/fest '09". Updates to that don't show up on my FL, so if you care, have a look. I'm not really reviewing the films any more than I would here -- a few words of squee, eeek or ew.

Speaking sort of tangentially about Adam, he said in some interview that he's gotten hooked on this particular brand of eyeliner since he's been on American Idol, since that's what they use there (hello, I hope you're getting paid for this little product nudge there Adam honey.). Now, you know me, I'm a total makeup maven (she said with a perfectly straight face -- hey, once upon a time, she had very practiced racoon eyes!), so I went to check it out. It's me by {me}zhgan (gods, I feel fucking pretentious just typing that). Now a sure sign that I am NOT a make up maven in truth was the FRICKIN CORONARY I almost had when I saw the price for that sucker -- $20! TWENTY AMERICAN DOLLARS? FOR A STICK OF EYELINER? SERIOUSLY?

Okay, I know I'm way out of touch. Maybe everybody who wears makeup these days pays twenty bucks for eyeliner. But me, even -- no, ESPECIALLY -- when I wore shitloads of it, I was feeling fancy if I bought a stick of $6 Revlon. My normal brand was Wet-n-Wild -- $.99, baby! Do they still make that crap? Not that it matters. I still have ten year old sticks of the only colors I would ever use anymore. If I could be arsed to wear makeup at all, of course.

Twenty dollars? Really? I bet millions of teens (oh hell, who am I kidding -- I bet half of Adam's really fervant fans are over 30.) have run screaming to the closest me by {me}zhgan *gag reflex* dealer and bought all the black, gray and navy they ever had or will have in stock.

Adam, seriously. You should get a royalty. Talk to Simon about it.

The subject of this post is actually a lie. I have The Band from Hell queued up to watch, but I've been doing other stuff, so I haven't started it yet.

I'm almost afraid to, it looks so bad. I'm hoping for camp-bad, but... the chances of that these days are so slim. *sigh*

Say, would you guys classify Coraline as "General" or "Horror"? I mean... it's kind of kiddie-horror, but it is weird and creepy as fuck. Hm. I'm not sure which of my viewing lists to put it on. I watched it last night. It was... can something be cute and creepy at the same time? And how come I feel like I've asked that question before? Anyway, I liked the cat and the Scotties. Especially the Bat Scotties. My kingdom to anyone who can find a really good bat Scotty icon!

Okay... wish me luck with the movie!

An interesting article about Israel and homosexuality, all tied in to our nice sparkly Jewish boy who totally should have won Adam. I hadn't even considered his Jewishness as a factor, because it wasn't something as widely talked about as his flamboyantly ambiguous sexuality. Could there be a drop of anti-Semitism in that massive multiple anti-voting campaign too?

Meh. It's time to put that show in the rear view mirror and move on to the AWESOMESAUCE that is no doubt ahead! What is it they say? Living well is the best revenge!

The following has been deemed "offensive" and "privleged white people making fun of racism without actually doing any work," and called bad on all kinds of levels, as you can see if you read the comments.

I thought it was fucking brilliant. But I'm white, so I guess that must be my privlege talking.

http://community.livejournal.com/debunkingwhite/818135.html

Please don't spam the comments. I think you have to be a member to post. I know "it's" not about me, but it's fucking exhausting and depressing to love all people equally, to try and combat racism where I find it and do my best to be a good overall human being, and be told that I'm still a racist asshole and that nothing I can ever do, however positive, is ever good enough. Whatever. No wonder more people don't struggle to be anti-racist allies.

I mean, what would be the appropriate response, standing there shouting back at them? Shooting them in the face? Tempting, but has violence ever worked against this sort of thing?

Do I still have to put American Idol stuff behind a cut? Does anybody with a computer NOT already know who won? Eh, fuck it. American Idol )

Shine on, Adam baby, YOU ROCK. You're the only reason I got so invested in this season in the first place. Hopefully it won't happen again. I believe a law should be passed that NO ONE should be able to be the American Idol without ROCKING a pair of six inch platform boots. *nods*

I need an icon of that outfit, STAT. And to see a remake of something glammy with Adam in the starring role. Rocky, maybe? (Horror Picture Show, not the boxing one.)

I mean, it's not that big of a deal -- I can watch whichever one I miss the next day, but MAN isn't SPN going to get whomped? Maybe not, and isn't season 5 the last anyway? I guess I'm just sad that my TV schedule is so damn EMPTY in the fall because so many of my favorite shows are opposite one another. I haven't done up the chart yet *cough*geek*cough*, so I can't get a good visual, but from what I can see, I'll be finding other things to do with my time than watch TV. Which... is actually a good thing, when I think about it.

You know I have a penchant for cruising the Friends of Friends feature at LJ. Randomosity is fun.

I found this in my random LJ wanderings today, and it brought tears to my eyes.

Image
President Barack Obama bends over so the son of a White House staff member can pat his head during a family visit to the Oval Office May 8, 2009. The youngster wanted to see if the President's haircut felt like his own.

I love my president. Not just as a symbol, but as a person. I've never felt that way about a president before, not even my beloved The Bill. I mean, I love The Bill, don't get me wrong, but I don't admire and respect him the way I do Obama. And that's even with some of the serious issues I have about some of the things going on in the administration right now.
