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!

The always wonderful and articulate [personal profile] liz_marcs has a post about Domestic Terrorism, and WHY aren't these terrorists being treated as such?

This, borrowed from my friend [profile] kita0610 makes it all feel so much more personal. I get increasingly horrified -- like these atrocities aren't horrifying enough -- that these vicious, bloothirsty, hate-mongering TERRORIST murderers are attacking people in what should be SAFE, SACRED places. Churches. Museums. You know, I had given some though to joining our local UU church, as they are usually welcoming of people from all faiths, and I thought I could use the community, the interaction with other people outside of the medical profession and fandom.

But after the shooting last year in a UU church in Tennessee made me rethink that. I don't know how to respond to this kind of violence. It makes me not want to leave the house at all, sometimes. Who knows what the next target could be? But how can we stop living our lives, which only allows these monsters to determine what we do, where we worship?

I just don't know.

In more fannish news (this kind of a 180 feels so weird, and yet... comes so natural to me. What does that say about my character?). SO MUCH TV GOODNESS COMING! True Blood starts this Sunday, and Merlin is coming on the 21st!



And an awesome Merlin Re-watch (or first watch!) @[profile] thefuturequeen: Right HERE!

Summertime TV is fun TV! *G*

~

Interesting meta about Buffy's Angel Issues when it comes to Spike and Spuffy. I don't necessarily agree with everything, but it's definitely a good read. Note especially the exchange between [personal profile] gabrielleabelle and [personal profile] dlgood in the comments. Food for thought!

SQUEE! Merlin is going to be airing on NBC starting Sunday, June 21! For those of you who have been curious about this slashalicious BBC show, now's your chance to check it out! SQUEE!

I do believe I'll be watching it again! I've been wanting to write some fic, and that will give me the perfect excuse to study the show more closely. *G*

~

*Sobs Senselessly* B/A FIC FROM *SNUFFLE* [profile] chrisleeoctaves! *Chokes* "Five Ways It Might Have Ended For Buffy and Angel". Go. Read it. Bring Kleenex. Worship and feed back.

So I FINALLY watched the pilot of Glee -- I mean, paid attention to it -- and I LOVED it! I can't wait to see where it goes in the fall. Did anybody else just get like SO PUMPED UP during "Don't Stop Believin'?" I guess that's why it's been #1 on iTunes. *G* Has it been put on the schedule yet? I hope it's not opposite anything I watch... Although that doesn't really stop me anymore since I can catch things online with no problem.

Yay Glee! :D

Hey, I started a Twitter Group thingy -- called a TWIBE, of all things. LOL It's http://twibes.com/non-twi-vamps - for fans of all things vamp... except Twilight. They have enough of their own groups. So if you have a Twitter, feel free to join.

I have no idea what it's for, but hey. I like joining things. *G*

~

HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHHA! Oh, Dave, I love you so much. *faints*

Okay, got to make it an early night tonight. I have to get up at HOLY SHIT! in the morning to take my father to an eye appointment. Woe.
