I find it completely hilarious that Daniel Radcliffe is playing "Edmund".

I adore the Simpsons' Treehouses of Horror. I can't believe this is the twenty-first one! I've seen them all as an adult old enough to drink. I'm really, really old.

You know what I hate? FASTING BLOODWORK. It's just cruel to make me get up, take a shower, get dressed, drive, and WAIT in the blood draw clinic WITH NO COFFEE.

We can measure like, nano things, but we can't find a way to do blood tests that filter out the ingredients of coffee? It's just not right.

Vampire Diaries S02E05 -- Don't need a cut, 'cause all I got to say is WHHUUUUT? And, you know, standard statement that I love Damon.

Terriers S01E05 -- What the hell happened? I completely did NOT get that ending. Anyone who did, please 'splainy in the comments.

So hey, since I couldn't possibly over-book myself enough, I'm going to do a 30 Days of True Blood, Buffy, and Angel meme! Although... I don't think there are actually 30 Angel ones? I dunno, we'll see.

So I finished The Wire, and... I don't know how I feel about it. I mean, it was really good, but wow, doesn't it leave you with a really bad taste in your mouth? Our system is so fucked, no wonder nothing ever gets done. No wonder people live in squalor and rely on crime to survive. It was really depressing. And almost everybody was dead by the end! Although, I guess there was some happiness for our police friends and Bubbles. That part made me happy anyway. Good show, but my favorite gritty is still Oz.

Now what am I going to watch? *sigh* I have a few movies I haven't gotten to yet, but I'm sort of in the mood for procedurals. L&O LA sucked -- at least the episode I caught the other night did. It was better in New York. I'm wondering if L&O UK is any good? Anyone? Buehler?

You know... maybe I'll just watch The Big Bang Theory again from the beginning. That's always good for some TV. Except it's not the good background TV that procedurals are. It's weird, but it seems like they're the only shows (besides the news) that I can kind of know what's going on while concentrating on writing at the same time. It must be something about alpha waves, like with music.

~

Wonder Woman might be coming back to TV. Hm. You know how cynical I cam about these things. And Wonder Woman was my GIRL when I was a kid. I mean, before Princess Leia came along, then they were sort of tied. But if they're going to "Smallville" her... it could be good, could be bad.

We'll see, I guess. Or not. "In development" could mean somebody is pondering the concept sitting on the crapper in the morning, and we'll never hear about it again.
theantijoss: (Bad Girls)
I want to post stuff, but I don't really have much to say! I mean, some of my shows have started, and True Blood ended, but all I have to comment about those right now are things like: "OMG!" and "Ooh!" "It was great!" "It was meh!" Etc.

Sons of Anarchy - Gonna get hairier, but I don't have any real comments yet. Beyond Jax being freaking hot.
Gossip Girl - Read more... )
Terriers - I love Donal Logue. He's all scruffy and down on his luck. That's all I need to know. I fear it's not long for this world, but so far I like it.
Vampire Diaries - W00t! W00t! Somerhalder never stops getting sexier. Is he just going to burst into flames someday, ring or no? It's on, folks!

I feel like there's stuff I'm forgetting, but I know it's early in the season yet. I am happy to announce that I seem to be over my summer reality disease for the most part (some of the terrible symptoms include wondering who are the worst examples of people from New Jersey: the Shore skanks, or the Psycho Hag Housewives). I'm watching Master Chef tonight, but I don't really care about, say, Herpes Pad (I mean "Bachelor Pad") or any of the other crap I couldn't stop myself from watching while nothing else was on. I mean, my sub-basic cable even lose MTV2! Which was, like, the coolest channel I used to get.

Currently, I'm watching The Wire for the first time. I just finished the first season, and I'm really enjoying it. Also liked the first season of Rizzoli & Isles -- does anybody know if it got renewed for next year, because as much as I love the characters, I fear the format getting dusty kind of quickly. BUT THAT CLIFFHANGER! UGH! I hate those. I MUST KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

As far as True Blood goes... I really need to re-watch the last few episodes before I can comment. Do I still need to do spoiler cuts? I will just in case. )

What are your thoughts on your viewing season thus far?

Another Vampire Diaries promo:





You know, between Twitlight and this, I've started to wonder: Why do these vampire guys bother going to high school? I mean... it's frickin' creepy, is what it is. I prefer they lurk. Of course, it's only these magically daytime-safe vampires who CAN go to school, but WHY WOULD THEY WANT TO? It's not like there are truant officers scouring towns anymore. Especially not for guys who are clearly at least in their 20's. The only think I can think of is that they want to stalk high school girls.

Geeze, at least Buffy was the Slayer -- she could take care of herself. I don't know... I think this show might end up being too Twilight Creepy for me. We'll see, I guess.

~

I'm curious if anyone has invites to An Archive of Our Own? I've been wanting to try it for a while now, and I would love to have someplace to post all of my fic besides LJ and my site. And of course, my site's a big mess, so.... Eh.

Anyway, if you're involved and have an invite, I would love one.

~

Mmmm. I just had the most delicious Caesar salad. I am appropriately ashamed at the bad environmental karma I collected, because not only wasn't it local produce, it was a DOLE BAGGED SALAD. They were on sale, and I'm really, really broke, ya'll. I was literally dying for some cool, fresh veggies. We almost never have them in our house anymore, as we're waiting for our own garden to be ready for harvest. I was read about, I think it was in New Jersey? That there's a program where people with Food Stamps can spend them on fresh food in the farmers' markets. Man, I would love to do that. Of course, I share a house owned by my parents, and they refuse to disclose their finances, so I can't even GET food stamps. How's that for a Catch-22? *sigh*

ANYWAY, wah wah I'm poor. YUMMY SALAD. I put jalapenos on it, chopped up the one tomato and 1/2 red pepper we had in the house. The salad kit came with "fresh" parmesan that you crumble up, a delicious creamy caesar dressing, and yummy croutons. IT WAS THE BEST SALAD EVER.

Okay, maybe in a really long time, then. Remember the days when I used to go to the steak house salad bar and have Fat Salads for lunch for $5/shot? It was like 3 pounds of Romaine lettuce, baby carrots, pepperoni, shredded cheese, chunky blue cheese dressing, balsamic vinegar, sauteed mushrooms and fresh bread croutons. Mmmm. So yummy and slimy and gross.

Man, I'm hungry for more salad.

Okay, there's just no way to be sad or grumpy after you see and hear this. Borrowed from my friend [livejournal.com profile] lizardjee, whose son is totally obsessed with it. I don't blame him, actually. :

You know a random fact about Eric Northman (on the show True Blood) that I adore? He is the tackiest fucking dresser in vampire history. No seriously. I mean, okay, Ricean vampires have velvet and frills or whatever, but dudes... Northman is all primary colored tank tops and shiny track suits. Hee. That it detracts not at all from his power or extreme hotness makes me very very happy in my pants.

~

ANYWAY. So much fic fun going on this summer!



Woohoo! Hot girl on girl action, ya'll! Climb on into our handbasket! You know the girls just don't get enough girllove!

I'm still reading the Porn Battle VIII entries. Yowza!

I'm hoping to be able to hole up (heh.) in the basement this weekend and do nothing but write -- including some hot femslash, baby! Also original stuff, and work on my Kradam fic.

Hm. On one hand, this show looks hot. On the other, it leaves a sort of teen soap taste in my mouth that I'm not sure I'm going to be able to live with. Ah well, we'll see in September!

"I'm not homophobic, I just don't like gay people!"

Hey, you know, everybody's entitled to their opinion and to make the rules for their own community, but if its a public, fannish community, you best be prepared for backlash if you're discriminating against a pretty substantial portion of many fandoms! My favorite example is how they shut down ALL submissions from Torchwood because it has teh GHEYS IN ITOMG! I've been told there are HET relationships in that fandom too! So... they're tainted because of their {big announcer voice} DIRECT CONTACT WITH TEH GHEEEEEYYYYYYZ.

I have little or nothing to do with vidding, but I know a lot of people who I like and respect are, and this is just... NOT ON! I mean, really, why is homophobia still so acceptable? Do we need to make up an "ism" in order for it to be a BAD thing? Okay, how about HOMOHATEISM? There, now can we get upset with people for it? Now can it get serious consideration in public discourse right along with other "isms"? I don't know why this made me so angry, but it really, really did. I mean, it's one stupid vid community that I'd never even heard of before the wounderous [livejournal.com profile] sockkpuppett pointed it out, but ON TOP of all the other indignities heaped on the LGBTQ community in recent days/weeks/months/years/decades, it just... ARGH!

Anyway, so... I can't do a damn thing about it accept urge my readers and friends NOT to submit to, vote on, or even publicly acknowledge the existence of this community beyond maybe spreading the word about its bigotry. Just because the owner says "No offense, it's just not to my taste," doesn't change the fact that it's HOMOHATEISM.

Feel free to join the boycott, but please, as pointed out in the post that started it all, http://mresundance.livejournal.com/643042.html, don't bother hating on the HOMOHATEIST. SHUN HIR/THEM. Much more effective in fandom. Oh! And for added interest (if you're interested at all) how about some historical context regarding the vidding community and exclusion of certain kinds of vids? http://morgandawn.dreamwidth.org/998147.html

Need a cure for that Hate? This video is the funniest, awesomest thing I've seen in a while, and SO APPROPRIATE! Fuck You Very Much! This song also makes me slightly less annoyed with Katy Perry.

RIP Farrah Fawcett. Your hair made part of my adolescence a slice of hell because it just. Wouldn't. Feather. But you were a fighter, and seeing Ryan O'Neil crying made me really sad. So... reast easy, angel.

And, uh... Michael Jackson. I didn't see that one coming. What was it Brian Kinney said on Queer As Folk? "If you don't earn respect when you're alive, you don't deserve it when you're dead." Word. I'll... refrain from adding any further comment on this. My momma said if you don't have anything nice to say... come sit next to me. *G*

My condolences to fans, friends and family.

My only comment on the warnings imbroglio is... why is it so hard to warn against things that are outside the standard vanilla sex (whether het or slash) box? Hell, I warn for foul language, excessive violence, and dark imagery as a matter of habit. To warn that there is torture, rape or abuse seems a given. *shrug* What exactly is the big whoop? Why are people freaking about about warning for hardcore content? If you can't read it in a novel in the erotica section of the bookstore (or hell, if you CAN -- I warn for BDSM, even though it is a perfectly legitimate sexual lifestyle between fully informed and consenting adults -- I warn because it's not necessarily all my readers' cup of smooth, sexy tea!) then you should warn for it. That's not a precise guideline, but... sheesh.

How hard is it to type "CONTENT: RAPE, ABUSE, NON/DUB-CON?" It took me three seconds. People who are whining about not warning don't make any sense to me... I mean... how fucking lazy can you get (and this coming from the Queen of Sloth)? And forget being inconsiderate and rude besides -- A LOT of people are asking for this three seconds of an author's time FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR MENTAL HEALTH. I don't get triggered by fic, but I still don't have a particular hankering for rape, abuse or dubcon most of the time, so I'd like a warning for that myself.

Really. Just suck it up and warn, people. It won't kill you, I promise. It won't violate your artistic integrity or whatthefuckever. Or your freedom of expression. Or anything else but that THREE FREAKING SECONDS OF YOUR LIFE. Is that really too much to ask if it means even ONE person doesn't get fucking nightmares from your fanfiction? Jesus!

The fanfic world has apparently changed since I was deep in it. *shakes head*

And just a side note: What the fuck is "victim privilege?" That's a frickin oxymoron if ever I read one.

~

I haven't seen the new Transformers (all the work Fox has had done on her face freaks me out), but this is interesting for those who have. A big part of thinking about racism is thinking about those small "oh, it's only a joke/robot/cartoon/song/etc." things that we indulge in every day that support making "others" out of those different from ourselves. Disney is probably the most guilty of this, along with a whole lot of other "isms," but it happens all the time and unless you're looking, you might not notice it.

Holy Hot Vampire Threesome, Batman! Dammit, why does it have to be on opposite Bones? Dammit, Jim, I'm a Doctor, not a network programming executive! I suppose it won't be too much trouble to catch Bones online and watch VD (heh) first run -- a nice lead in for SPN... for me, anyway, I don't know how successful it will be with the tweenies I know the pairing is programmed for. *shrug*

Whatever. I'm just going to stare at the banner for a while, if you'll excuse me.

Mr. Obama, you rock. Now if only you would change your mind on the marriage equality issue (and a few other things -- I'm really concerned about the various privacy and spying issues that are still Status Quo from the fascist Bush regime. And seemingly getting worse.)

What is Pride?

If, like me, you're stuck in a place with no Pride -- well, not that there's no Queer Pride here, just that there's no big parade. The community is fairly insular, and for perfectly understandable -- though sad -- reasons. I always endeavor to be a good ally, and you know LGBT issues are my biggest political "thing", but I want to spend this month appreciating the contributions and tribulations of the gay community by appreciating its art!

Glaad, for example, has Pride TV a list of LGBT programming on Television.

The Logo Network (imagine, five years ago there WAS no LGBT network!) lists their top 10 Gay Movies You Have to See! Here's the list, if you don't feel like watching the video... )

I'm going to hunt a few of those down myself -- starting with But I'm a Cheerleader!

Music: Okay, first, I found this link, which is MUSIC YOU SHOULD BAN FROM YOUR HOME IF YOU DON'T WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO TURN GAY! Which, to me, means acts that I should probably try harder to support. I don't know if this is a joke or not, but the Jonas Brothers are on there as a "Gateway Band". Man, am I glad I'm not a Christian. I would hate to have to keep decrying the asshats that make my side look bad. *patently ignores the odder of the naked tree dancing Pagans with names like Sir DragonDancer and Lady NutFaery* He also lists the Dresden Dolls as a "safe" band, along with Cheap Trick and Evanescence? o_O

On a more legit note, check out OutVoice.net, home of the LGBT Musicians Top 40 list. I've been a freak for Indigo Girls music for YEARS, and though I've lost interest in her most recent work, Melissa Etheridge as well.

Want to learn something about LGBT visual art? Check out Wikipedia's LGBT Art Portal or GayCity USA's directory of artists' webpages.

Don't forget, our own fannish communities are full of wonderful queer writers, artists, philosophers and other characters, and lots of GAY PORN! *G*

Let's celebrate PRIDE!

Because of Twilight fame, Quileute Tribe hires a publicist.

I'm not sure how I feel about that. I mean, good for them for hiring someone to help with this, because the series makes soup out of Quileute tradition, right along with playing on the old Native = Animal trope. But still, it makes me uncomfortable that they should HAVE to do that. I don't know.

Five Reasons the so-called "Buffy" re-boot Won't Work

Here, I have five for you:

1.) No SMG
2.) No DB
3.) No Scoobies/Giles
4.) No Big Bad of the Season
5.) No Joss (I can't believe I just typed that, but there it is)

Several of these are covered in the article. With his other ones, we could make ten. I'm sure all of us together (fandom-wise) could make a list of HUNDREDS.

NO, Kuzui's, NO! Go find something else you're only nominally a part of and gut THAT.

Cheney Backs Gay Marriage

He's still Satan. He's just a slightly less homophobic Satan. It's typical of the right, actually. He only feels like this because his daughter is gay. I remember my mother telling me a lot of stories about when she was coming of age in the 60's, rich women could always get abortions, even though they were illegal. Hypocrisy, they name is self-righteous right wingers!

I don't think basic human civil rights should be a state by state issue, personally.

Now this "re-booting" shit is just getting ridiculous. WRITE SOMETHING ORIGINAL, HOLLYWOOD.

I've decided to give PORN BATTLE VIII a shot. I haven't written anything in YEARS, but I can do 2500 words as long as nothing horrible happens between now and June 15 *knocks on wood*. I think I'd like to try a new fandom, AND maybe something Buffy/Angel-verse. We'll see.

If you want to see something B/A (or whatever *G*) from me, go over there and comment -- you can do it anonymously if you want. I'm willing to write PORN! in the following fandoms/pairings:

Buffyverse:

B/A (duh)
B/F
B/A/F
A/S
F/S
Frillow

Being Human: I'll try anything, but it will go better for you if it involves Mitchell. *G* I'm fond of Mitchell/Annie, myself.
SPN: Dean/Castiel
Merlin: Merlin/Arthur, Arthur/Lancelot, Morgana/Gwen
True Blood: Eric/Sookie, Sookie/Tara, Sookie/Pam, Pam/Eric/Sookie
HP: Remus/Sirius

I dunno, try me on something and maybe I'll give it a shot. *G* I get to choose whatever prompts I want to write.

I'm actually looking forward to Vampire Diaries in the fall. And just for anyone who's not aware: THIS SERIES OF BOOKS CAME OUT LONG BEFORE TWILIGHT. I can already hear the whining about VampD being a "rip off". Also, Elana is not NEARLY the useless whinebag that Bella Swan is, and the creepy brother is SUPPOSED to be creepy, unlike Edward Cullen.



Yes, I am biased, as a matter of fact. Thanks for noticing! I'm going to have to give the first few episodes a try and catch Bones online, I think. I'll see how I feel when it happens. It would be fun to have a Thursday night CW lineup again.

~

I just got a Robocall from the National Organization for Bigotry Marriage, and I actually TOOK the stupid survey just to make sure someone who thinks they're batshit actually made their dissenting opinion clear. Of course, after it asked me, "Do you believe blah blah we hate gay people and you'll go to hell if you don't marriage between one man and one woman ONLY?" And I said, very loudly, very clearly, "NO." It said, "Thank you for your time," and hung up.

Hm. Methinks they weren't interested in my opinion. I'm just glad I answered the phone and not my folks. They're both of the "Civil Unions Yes Marriage No" crowd. Which I vehemently disagree with, but considering they're both not nearly as gay-positive as I, is a fairly good thing.

Trying to get gay marriage rights in New York State is going to be a long, possibly futile haul. For all that we have NYC and several other large gay enclaves and are a SCREAMING blue state, there are also places like HERE where I live, where there is ONE gay bar, and it constantly gets its windows broken out. (And yet we once had a gay mayor. Weird. Of course, he turned out to be corrupt, but... that's neither here nor there, just indicative of the bizarness that is the EXTREME up of Upstate New York.)

We'll see. I only wish the NOBM had been a live person, so I could demand they send me my Ghey Repellent Umbrella to make sure I wouldn't get any of that nasty Ghey on me during the GREAT GHEY STORM that's a comin'!

BLEACH DOESN'T GET THAT OUT, YOU KNOW. But the Tide stick might.

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?

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.)
