Wow. This really gave me a whack in the head. John Hughes died today. RIP, Mr. Hughes, your movies were a centerpiece of my adolescence.

For Fans of the Great Green One!


If you love Gaila like I do (or you know, even in to a slightly saner degree. *G*), come and play! I'm talking with the mods of [livejournal.com profile] teamgaila to have a corresponding one on LJ, but ANYONE is welcome at the DW meme!

Oh, Google Ads, you so funny! Today's gem was, "Are You a Trekkie? Take our quiz to find out! YOU MAY BE DUMBER THAN YOU THINK!" Hahahahaha. I C WAT U DID THAR!

Wait, here's another one! LOL "Manifesting Works - www.QuantumJumping.com - Learn How to Jump Into Any Reality You Desire... For Real". Okay! I'm still not clicking that link. Unless you can guarantee Scott Bakula circa 1993 will be there.

Well, I'm finally going to check out Harry Potter tomorrow. I've got a bunch of errands to run later in the afternoon (HELLO new painkiller esp. for that special time of the month!), so I figure if I go to the early matinee, that will leave me plenty of time. It's funny, I heard kind of neutral-positive things about it, but no real squee, so... *shrug* I'm not always a huge fan of the movies as entities unto themselves anyway. I remember especially with GoF, thinking that the story was so holey, so convinced that every viewer had already read the books, that I swear anyone who hadn't would be completely lost.

But it's a tradition for me to see them in the theaters, and with only one more left, I shall continue said tradition with honor! Or... you know, snacks I snuck in.

I'm sort of building my own network of shows I want to catch up on, watching an episode or two every day. Right now, the list includes Star Trek TOS, Dexter, Legend of the Seeker, and Torchwood, among a few others. What I'm looking for here are your favorite anime shows. I know a lot of friends on my FList watch them, and I'm wondering what you recommend. My entire experience with the genre includes Vampire Hunter D and Spirit or... Ghost? The one about the kid who crosses over a bridge into a ghost world, I think. Shit, I can't remember. What else is good?

Please feed the dragons! :D

Sung to the tune of Frosty the Snowman, of course. So that would make it... Duckie the Hump Fen? Heh.

Okay, the sentiment is disturbing, but the cat is hilarious!


LOLCats

Speaking of LOLCats, I'm completely addicted to http://speaklolspeak.com -- it's like a special home for LOLAddicts.

Like this: A Day in the Life of a Cat vs. a Dog )

Hahahahahhahahaha. I am so easily amused.

~

I am also easily distracted. You know what I spent most of yesterday doing? Alternating between reading the LOLCat Bible and the Adam Lambert Appreciation Thread @ [livejournal.com profile] ontd_ai, which breaks the freaking internetz every five minutes. It's insane fan time over there, ya'll -- there's sparkly penises and Lambert macros all over the place. It's madness! ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY NINE PAGES of comments at last count. (Um, make that 147 157.)

THE LINK IS NSFW! Sparkly peen and giant foul words abound!

I've had two movie passes sitting around for almost a year -- they're still good for another year, but there are so few movies I think are worth the trouble of a theater. And I mean VERY few. In fact, I prefer watching most things on DVD in the comfort of my own home, with my own food, in my own jammies or whatever. But I am DYING to see that new Gerry Butler rom-com... even though I'm sort of meh on Katherine Heigel, and the rom-com genre died a long time ago, I LOVE GERRY THAT MUCH MORE. I thought maybe I could make an afternoon of it -- go see HP at the first matinee, and then go see the Gerry movie after.

But ugh, the idea of spending that much time in a movie theater does not make for a happy Duckie. I really want to see HP in the theater -- I always do -- but the chairs are uncomfortable, and bringing your own food is like sneaking weed on an airplane flying out of Jamaica bringing your nail clippers on a plane. And I am NOT spending $20 (which I don't have anyway) for a cup of crappy popcorn and flat soda.

Oh, the dilemma! I mean, I do have passes... and I don't HAVE to have snacks...

DON'T MISS the Home Team 2009 Awesomest Female Character Matches! Make sure to vote for Buffy! CLICK HERE FOR HER THREAD -- this is just the nomination round, so stay tuned for more! I actually nominated a few characters (Bette Porter, Aeryn Sun, Rachel Morgan, Eve Dallas) and voted heartily for a bunch of others besides our B. Please check it out. As much as I love Adam and think he is totally the HBIC? He really shouldn't win a contest meant to find the most popular FEMALE.

So... I signed up for [community profile] kink_bingo. You guys know I'm so vanilla except for some bloodplay and D/s Bondage fun, so this is REALLY reaching outside my comfort zone. I'm going to TRY for a blackout -- that is, writing a 500 word story for all 25 kinks, but... there are a few on there that are kinda squicky to me. (Hello watersports. *shudder* I'm so sorry to anybody who enjoys it -- this isn't a judgment, it's just not MY kink. They always say, one woman's kink is another woman's squick and vice versa!)

Then again, there are a few that don't squick me, but that I don't really get, you know? One in particular is humiliation. I'm reading about it, read a couple of fics about it, and I think I get some of the psychology of it, but as it's not my kink, I can't really be sure. I don't know. Anyone who can give some insight, email me on the DL ducksfanfic at gmail dot com. I won't share your name.

Anyway, when I start writing the stories, I'll put up a post with my bingo card so you can follow along if you're so inclined. *G* Meanwhile, I have to get back to my Kradam fic, as that's coming up soon! Although first I need to finish my TB commentary -- I just watched the episode again, and it was SO GOOD. Man, if you love vampires and you haven't checked out this show, you really, really need to.

Please click mah bb's. (Yeah, I've just given in to the stupidity Life is easier that way.)

Is the New York Daily News Crazy, stupid or both? Their headline reads: "Do you think Hermione and Ron are a good match?"

WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Don't you know that's like giving the nuclear launch codes to the BAT SHIT CRAZIEST PEOPLE IN THE HISTORY OF FANDOM? (And that's saying something, sister.) Don't you know they will KILL YOU? They will eat your children and dress your dog up like Harry or Ron, whoever's their favorite, and then put on shadow puppet shows demonstrating why their ship is the best and the OTHER ONE IS OF SATAN.

Srsly, New York Daily News, you might want to rethink that headline.

Hahahahaha. I swear, not seconds after I finished typing that, the headline changed to something else on Google News. LOL. I wonder if their server crashed with THOUSANDS OF TINHATS posting their insane TL;DR screeds on the joys/horrors of H/R at the same time.

* Disclaimer: This is not to say, of course, that ALL HP shippers are nutbag tinhat weirdo, dog-dressing, baby-eating freaks. I know there are at least six or seven of you who are perfectly sane and look at the whole thing like, 0_o right along with the rest of us.

Remember how I was raving about my Yummy Salad yesterday? Yeah, there's another reason besides cost that keeps me from eating a lot of uncooked fresh veg. MY GUT IS KILLING ME. I can't remember why fresh veggies are hard for me to digest (because of my Crohn's), I know I read it somewhere, but I forgot. I LOVE fresh veggies, and it makes me angry that they cause me PAIN. It's not the veggies' fault, of course, Veggies are wonderful, even if the lettuce comes from Goddess knows where and has been packed in a bag for however long, and was probably sprayed with poisons, genetically enhanced, and packed by migrant workers making $.05 a day.

OH GOD NO WONDER MY GUT HURTS. IT'S ENVIRONMENTAL/SOCIAL GUILT. *flails*

~

Okay, I've been really good about keeping my mouth shut about all things Michael Jackson related out of respect for close friends of mine who were huge fans and are really hurting. But I just had to say that "his" daughter is BEAUTIFUL. Srsly!

And speaking of celebrity children -- Thank the gods Baby! Jr. grew into his head. DAMN that kid is HUGE! He's going to be like, nine feet tall!

~

Awww. This makes me so happy!


(find the meme here)


It's like, a whole new generation of fans! I hesitate to take part because I'm such an old, grizzled, bitter vet and I never want to squash a new fan's squee. But it makes me so nostalgic for the old days! I mean... the good part of the old days. ;)

Just for the record, the ugly starts creeping in just like the old days too. Someone mentions there's not enough Spuffy, and then suddenly 20 Spuffies show up and diss B/A (and vice versa). *sigh* The more things... well, don't change at all, never mind.

~

After the above reminded me how much I hate shipping wars, I hesitate to even do this, because I completely see True Blood going down the exact same ridiculous path. *sigh* But Oh well -- vote for who you think Sookie should be with. Go ahead, stuff the balot box, post the link to every community you belong to, say nasty things about the people who don't like your guy/ship, spread rumors about how they cheat and steal and eat babies and kick puppies and got you fired or whatever. Send some hate mail, make a closed community so you can talk shit and not get called on it. Just... go ahead. Because we can't possibly just be positive about one thing without trying to destroy something else.

No such thing as a good natured rivalry or a peaceful difference of opinion in fandom. Everything we do has to be completely over the top and batshit. Whatev.



Ugh.

~

Okay, Merlin cheered me up, and gave me some time to remember that I have built up my own little corner of fandom where everybody pretty much gets along, or shuts up if they don't, and that's okay. I love my Spuffy friends, they love me, it's all good. Even if/when the True Blood ship wars do break out in truth, I'll be able to go over here ([livejournal.com profile] trueblood_squee) and plug my ears and go LALALALALALALALA along with others who want to do the same. *G*

TRUE BLOOD LATER WHEEEEEE! Actually, people are just about to start watching it RIGHT NOW. I'm so jealous. *sigh*

~

So... I'm still trying to get a female. I'm building a collection of pretty dragons, though! Look, twins! I had to separate them so we wouldn't get confused. Please pet my pretty new red egg, and let's see what we've got here. :D

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
