Do you know I have to turn the volume on my CW affiliate up to 60 (out of 100) on my TV to hear any of the shows? WTH?


Okay, Modern Family is in pretty close contention to be my #1 favorite sitcom of all time. (The Big Bang Theory is up there too.) My lungs were already in excruciating pain from the VULCAN DEATH FLU, and this week's episode made me laugh so hard I'm pretty sure I blacked out for a minute.

"Control-D makes the picture walk, walk, walk."

"I'm going to go get a beer, beer, beer, before I hit you in the head, head, head."

Hee. And the great thing about it is there are so many really touching moments too. Like although I almost passed out from laughing, I also got all teary at the end. That's a good show.


I horked this from the lovely [Bad username or site: killerweasel @ site], and IDEK WTFF, man.

See, it made me use that text speak shit that I hate.

Hey, at least Sparkly Peen's not in it! But Buffy, Eric and Bill are, along with some of my beloved classics. Hi Deacon Frost! Hi Langella's Dracula! Oh, and so many others. But no Gerry Butler. *sniff* I guess they're trying to pretend that movie didn't happen. No Underworld, either. Oh well, I guess you can't get ALL the vampires, right?


So you know I signed up for Schmoop_Bingo. I also have plans to finish Rise (I swear, [personal profile] moscow_watcher, I'm giving it my best shot!) and another IWRY that I left hanging, plus a new IWRY short fic. That's a lot of writing for a person who hasn't done much of anything in years.

Then I remembered NANO IS COMING. I planned on finishing a draft of my latest long languishing original novel.

Okay, I'm not going to get all panicky. I'm just going to plug along and do the best I can. Otherwise, this is when I always just freak myself out into stopping writing entirely and disappear for a while. I don't want to do that this time. I have to stick to it no matter how I feel, and no matter how the material is coming that day.

Misha Collins (Castiel on Supernatural) is the funniest guy in TwitterLand. I *heart* him a hundred times more than I did yesterday. Hee.

Here! Someone was even kind enough to illustrate the saga for us. LOL


WTF is this? Is this legit or just conspiracy theory bullshit? Ain't no way I'm letting anybody near my computer without a warrant. I'd smash it first, Hard drive and all.


I went and got my CPAP thingy today. Fun! I've been calling it my iron lung on Twitter. It's not quite that drastic, and I swear I almost fell asleep on the nurse (not ON her, but in her presence) while she was testing the fit of the mask. I'm actually looking forward to trying it out tonight.


Dear Adam Lambert:

Never take off that coat. Ever. (Unless you're in drag, of course.) It works for you like, HARD. I voted for you an extra time just because of the coat.

Also, I love you.

I don't know how much you guys know about burning .avi videos to DVD, but I've been really frustrated lately. First of all, the amount of time it takes to transcode and burn one movie is like, eight hours. And even then, when I go to play the disc on several different DVD players and computers, it's all screwed up! I've been trying to burn my SPN Season 3 episodes for WEEKS, and they never turn out right. I watched the files themselves, and though there are a few flaws here and there, overall, they're fine. But the DVD's are all screwed up -- digitized pictures, skipping, freezing, the sound completely off track with the picture. It's driving me NUTS. I really need to get some of this crap off my external hard drive, but I don't want to keep wasting blank DVD's, you know?

Any advice? Oh, and for reference sake, I'm using NeroVision 4 for both the transcoding and burning, and I have had plenty of successes with it, but it seems totally hit and miss as to what will burn and what won't.

Oh, and a more specific question: could doing other tasks while burning effect the quality of the DVD? For instance, if I watch a YouTube or some other video, or if the virus protector is running, could that mess things up?



Thank you to all my friends who contributed to the discussion yesterday. I've compiled a list of movies people mentioned and the 8 films that were mentioned more than once were... )

This discussion got a lot longer than I expected. *G* )
