One problem with watching TV on the computer is that when my attention wanders, I have to switch away from the screen and only have audio, which I tend to tune out. When the TV is on, I seem to miss less somehow. I wish I could hook up my laptop to the TV -- wirelessly, of course. But only the video part. Like my computer is my cable box, you know? There has to be technology like that out there, doesn't there?

So I finished Season 1 of Legend of the Seeker last night. I want to watch it again IMMEDIATELY, but did anybody else feel like the finale was kind of anti-climactic? I don't know, it seems likeRead more... )

Okay, sometimes Facebook is good for fun stuff. *G*

(Okay, yes, I am pathetic, let's get that out of the way up front. I am aware of this, and I don't care.)

JESSICA FINALLY MATED! I decided to give she and Big Swirly a chance to get it on, and THEY DID! LOOK!

Adopt one today!

It's my first baby dragon! I'm so proud. *sniff* I wonder who she'll look like? I'm hoping she'll have green and red and be female so I can name her GAILA! I need to name my bloodline... I should just call it "auDucks". *G*

Now say hi to the rest of the dragon spam Pen! *G*

Supernatural fans!

Wow. This made me really stop and think. Pointed out by [personal profile] wistfuljane. First, check out the beautiful artwork HERE. It's by [livejournal.com profile] vito_excalibur, and it absolutely BLEW my mind.

Now, think about it in terms of [personal profile] thefourthvine's commentary: Because the thing is - there is one thing different in this picture, and it changes everything. Imagine these guys driving through small southern towns in their big black car with all manner of guns. Imagine these guys running credit card scams, and trying to talk their way into strangers' houses, and, you know, the other stuff that Dean and Sam do. (Sorry, we have reached the limit of my osmotic fannish knowledge.) It would be a whole different narrative, I'll tell you that for free.

That's some meta commentary, right there.

And speaking of [personal profile] wistfuljane and racism food for thought, I have been hearing about the racist casting of The Last Airbender, but I hadn't SEEN it put so succinctly before:

"racebending.com updated their site. One update is their casting comparision pictures:


Aang, Katara, Sokka and Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender.


Noah Ringer as Aang, Nicola Peltz as Katara, Jackson Rathbone as Sokka and Dev Patel as Zuko from The Last Airbender.

Another is their petition: Join the Boycott: Aang can stay Asian and still save the world."

To know about it and think it shocking is one thing -- to see it like that is... o_O Whut? It's bad enough that the heroes have been completely whitewashed, but worse still is that the VILLAIN is being played by a person of color! WTF is that shit?

FAIL, Hollywood. Again.

In happier news, I have a new hero! OMG she is so awesome -- Kahlan Amnell from Legend of the Seeker. She is BADASS, dudes. Ain't no damseling going on here, either. I am just LOVING Legend of the Seeker. Denna the Dominatrix is another favorite. And HEY! I knew I recognized Darken Rahl (the villain) -- he was Haldir in Lord of the Rings! And Richard is frakking HOT, yo.

I NEED MORE ICON SPACES GODDAMNIT!!!!

Okay, guys. It's August 1. I'm looking at my commitments and buckling down for some serious writing.

The big one on my mind right now is [community profile] kink_bingo -- bingos are due by August 31. I have THIRTY days to finish a bingo. I have a 9 story bingo planned, plus a 5 story double line and a one story postage stamp. That's FIFTEEN kinky stories in thirty days. That means TWO kinky stories a day, minimum 500 words each.

Think I can do it? I mean, I know I can write 500 words a day, but can I write 500 words a day that anyone will want to READ? (You would ask this question too if you saw my NaNo manuscript from last year.)

What I would love to do (after I finish bingos within the alloted time) is do black-outs (all the kinks on the card) for Gaila and B/A. Wouldn't it be fun to see if I could get 25 kinky B/A stories? I'll never have time for it, but a girl can dream.

ANYWAY... FIFTEEN Stories. THIRTY days. That is my challenge. It would, unfortunately, make a very, very boring reality show.

Hahahaha. Speaking of [community profile] kink_bingo, I downloaded one of the soundtracks they offered, and I'm right now listening to the AWESOME Dr. Hook's "Freaking at the Freaker's Ball". I fucking LOVE this song. So does my dad -- he's a huge Dr. Hook fan. He used to play this song when I was a KID. I mean, I didn't know what it meant, but there I was, 9 years old, singing about masochists and necrophiliacs and smearing someone with butter. LOL. No wonder I'm so weird!

Watching the first episode of The Legend of the Seeker. I've read the first four or five of the books, and I have to say, the series is a LOT easier to follow. LOL. I love the books, but man are they dense and complicated. This show is more like... Wizard's First Rule meets Hercules: The Legendary Journies. I'm okay with that. One thing they have in common? Kahlan is BAD ASS.

Okay, back to work. Gaila and Kirk are waiting. *G*

DRAGONS! Look, the new one looks kind of like a half lizard, half kitty!
