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.

OMG MISHA IS TOTALLY A SCUMBAG ON WITHOUT A TRACE RIGHT NOW!

I love Misha. *smorshes Misha*

theantijoss: Hee. I love the combination of this reference and this scene from Big Bang. (BBT - Holy Grail)
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.

Supernatural S06E03 )

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.

Supernatural S06E01 ) What did you guys think?

As far as Terriers this week goes -- I loved it, of course. But primarily, my thoughts at the end were that just when I thought Donal Logue couldn't get any damn sexier, he pulls out an acoustic guitar. Yes, hello, fetish. Honey, all you need to do is put on a pair of beat up tan Timberland workboots, and I'm going to have to start seriously stalking you.

That DDOS attack on LJ, Twitter and Facebook Thursday? TOTALLY SCARY AND NUTS, MAN!

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!!!!

Come on in to the dragon's pen!

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

You're supposed to be my friend! :(

HOT DRAGON ACTION! Or, er... actually, not.

Adopt one today! (BJPinky) Adopt one today! (TBJessica)

So I decided, since Jessica is all grown up (and we all know that females should have BABIES, as this is their only purpose in life!), I should breed her. And guest commentator [livejournal.com profile] frozenproduce suggested mating her with one of my pink fellas. Well, I mean, they're cute pink dragons with tidy wings and large show tune collections, so you can probably guess what happened. I introduced Pinky and Jessica, and they.... went "meh." And absolutely no Dragon Smexing whatsoever took place. *Sigh* Now I have to wait another day and try with Rosey. Maybe he'll "Show interest" in her?

Tune in tomorrow for AS THE DRAGONS... er... TURN? FLAP? SPEW FIRE? I dunno.

HAHAHAHA! Check out "The Honeymoon of Dean and Castiel" hahahaahhaahaha.







BWAHHAHAHAHAHAHA.

So... [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle has a poll: Is B/A subversive? Does it subvert itself in canon? And seeing as how her entire FList seems to be Spuffies and B/A negative people, I BEG ONE OF OUR MORE ELOQUENT FANS ([livejournal.com profile] margotlefaye, are you out there? If I had a D Signal, I would flash it at you! And OH HOW I MISS HARPY RIGHT NOW!) TO EXPLAIN WHY B/A IS NOT *insert same old generally dismissive and insulting crap about B/A here*.

Keep your tone polite if you answer. Notice I didn't answer, because my answer would mostly be "OMG PEOPLE STFU! IT'S NOT CLICHE! YOU SEE A LOT OF "HEROINE WITH HERO LOVE INTEREST CONSORT" IN MODERN FICTION DO YOU? SEE TWO HEROES PROPPING EACH OTHER UP WITH (probably impossible) DREAMS OF HOPE, HAVE YOU? ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH! *throws violent tantrum, has heart attack and drops dead* And, I'm not entirely sure what she's even asking to begin with. Or why.

To Subvert (According to Webster's): 1 : to overturn or overthrow from the foundation : ruin; 2 : to pervert or corrupt by an undermining of morals, allegiance, or faith.

The Free Dictionary (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/subversive) has a more salient definition of Subversive: "subversive: Adjective - intended or intending to weaken or overthrow a government or an institution. Noun - a person engaged in subversive activities."

The thesaurus suggests "revolutionary". So... was B/A meant to destroy some fundamental tropes, as so much of what Whedon does is supposed to do? Does it destroy itself? Is it revolutionary?

I'm being a good girl, and coming back here to cry and hyperventilate and get hugs, and PLEADING for one of the many intelligent B/A Shippers on my FLIST to PLEASE offer a balanced view to that B/A hate fest over there. (They are not being mean about shippers, though, which is a nice change.) I had to leave about two comments in, and may not be able to put together a coherent answer besides "NO! WTF?" And so.

*breathes deep yoga breaths*

(Here's a puzzler: why is a Spuffy asking an Flist full of Spuffies if B/A is subversive in the first place? Don't answer that, it's just a little thought in my head.) (And hey, WHY HAVE I STILL NOT LEARNED NOT TO CLICK LINKS I KNOW WILL PROBABLY BE NOT-B/A FRIENDLY? IT'S BEEN TEN YEARS.)

Also, please don't bring up Spuffy in the discussion -- [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle specifically asked people not to. It's also lame to bash another ship just to pump up your own, and not what the discussion needs.

I'm going to go throw up now.

You know what brought me down (or "up," I guess) AGAIN? Star Trek. I'm watching the Original Series for the first time in decades -- including the original pilot, which I've never seen before, and my blood pressure is back down, and I've just kind of... let that annoyance earlier go. Does this speak of the calming power of Star Trek? My continued over-investment in shows that have been off the air for years? Both?

Anyway -- I'm sad in a different way now. #1 in the original pilot was AWESOME. And an officer. And there's actually some surface level touching on sexism. There was an Asian fella in the transporter room! Roddenbury said in the intro that one of the reasons the original pilot was not produced was because it wasn't "cast sensibly" = too many non-whites.

Which leads me to think about IBARW and an essay I read today: Nyota Uhura is Not a White Girl or "now that we've got that clear, and you know that i'm not here..." by [livejournal.com profile] rawles. It's excellent food for thought, and a good explanation for why every time I hear someone say the word "post-racial", I want to kick them. (I'm trying to keep my temper down, because I'm dizzy! From the high blood pressure that I totally don't have! Oh, man, I'm having a total breakdown. Or else one of these new meds is making me more batshit than usual.")

Help me Original Trek (even-though-your-flaws-are-glaring-you-were-making-real-inroads-for-your-time)! Help me!

Or better yet, my beautiful, wonderful friends of all fandoms and ships and preferred characters and philosophies and temperments. I need some recs. Happy recs. Porny recs. Gaila recs. What I would love:

Porny, HEA Recs from any current fandom: True Blood, Supernatural (Dean/Castiel), Gossip Girl (Chuck/Blair or Blair/Serena), Merlin, Being Human, Star Trek XI, Kradam, and of Course, Buffy/Angel (B/A positive ONLY, please)
Eric Northman recs
Gaila/Uhura, Gaila/Kirk, or just Gaila recs (especially these -- I'm collecting links in my Delicious.
Fluffy Being Human fic (OT3 or Mitchell/Annie)
*Happy B/A or B/A Meta.*


Or write me some drabbles! Or post funny gifs. Something!
