This short interview with the Ways is, by the far, the most delightful thing I have watched in a long, long time.




A quote, from Mary Roach's Packing for Mars, p. 57:

I once met a man who told me that after landing in Christchurch, New Zealand, after a winter at the South Pole research station, he and his companions spent a couple days just wandering around staring in awe at flowers and trees. At one point, one of them spotted a woman pushing a stroller. "A baby!" he shouted, and they all rushed across the street to see. The woman turned the stroller and ran.





This link is to a short quote from an essay on Beatrice and Dante, but you should go read it. It's worth it.




I have been really slow and lazy about my Fringe watching - I was enjoying the beginning of season 2, but it wasn't grabbing me in any particular way that meant I had to watch more, now, please. But now I am at the second half of the season and it is a different story. I enjoyed "Johari Window" and "What Lies Below" as solid episodes, and then "The Bishop Revival" was kind of fun - but now I just finished "Jacksonville" and "Peter" and holy crap, what a 1-2 punch that was. So, yes! I have reached the MORE NOW MORE phase at last, I suspect.




This picture makes me happy in my pants soul. I need to rewatch the movie. And then all of the original series. SHATNER AND NIMOY. I LOVE THOSE BITCHES SO MUCH. *single tear*

Seriously, if you have not heard me drunkenly talk about William shatner, you have not seen the true depths of my earnestness.
schmerica: (autumn coziness)
Holy shit, MCR. Holy shit.

It should surprise no one that my Mikeyway attraction is at an all-time high.

In other news, Vampire Diaries is starting out just as awesome as it ended last season. Yay! &Caroline;

Internet, please tell me what to do with my life, okay? I'm drawing a blank. I am rapidly coming to an end of the satisfaction available from my entry level customer service job.

Also (and I apparently have given up on transitions in this entry), if anybody knows of a download/torrent for the new Thermals album, I beg you to share. My normal searches are failing me :(
schmerica: (pete inna hat)
Time for the bandom fic rec meme that's been going around! Woo-hoo. First lines of twenty-five stories behind the cut tag; identify the story and win unending glory. Or just get to reread awesome stuff, whichever.

Twenty-five first lines! )

Man, [livejournal.com profile] impertinence and I were emailing back and forth earlier on reasonably interesting topics and somehow we once again got diverted into a discussion of Ray and Gerard being freaking adorable losers in life. I don't care if nobody writes it, that is a motherfucking excellent pairing, you guys, and it doesn't get enough love.

Anyway, at some point we were discussing a picture that neither of us has saved, and I ended up looking through tons of people's old picspams looking for it, to no avail. (It's one where Ray is signing, like, a guitar or something? and Gerard is way off to the side looking really hilariously sad about it, all curled in on himself little kid like. If you have it, share.) And looking at all those picspams brought me to a conclusion, and that conclusion is this:

NEEDS MOAR RAY TORO.

(Ahaha, you guys read my post the other day about how I think the reason I don't like TBPID! live CD as much is because you can't hear his back-up vocals at all and it sounds weird, right? I told Imp I don't think that opinion is caused by my Raywifing, but there's no way to tell for sure.)

C'mon, guys, it's Friday night. Let's have a love-in. He's earnest, his voice is girly, he sticks his hand in cupcakes, he's a guitar god, he's hung, he's fucking adorable. Turn-ons include washing machines, Iron Maiden, 24, and stinky bandmates. Tell me about your Ray love! Share pictures and youtube links!

HERE YOU GO. HAVE SOME PICTURES TO START YOU OFF.

Cut for pictures! Duh )

YOUR TURN, GUYS. Let's have a love-in. Also, write me some motherfucking porn.
schmerica: (KEYBOARD MASH)
It's amazing the stuff you don't realize you don't have copies of right up until your friend get into the fandom.

For example, pictures I definitely, 100% do not have on this computer include: Pete with dreads, Pete with nipple piercing, Gerard at prom, and Frank at prom. FEEL FREE TO SHARE ANY OF THESE.

My life is the fucking saddest, you guys, seriously.

Also it is hilarious getting asked if thing X is canon or not and knowing the answer is YEAH IT TOTALLY IS and then totally blanking on which of a hundred different interviews/articles/clips you know it from. Oh bandom I looooooove you. Basically, if it is ridiculous, the answer is YES.

PS MIKEYWAY )

I made [livejournal.com profile] fox1013 watch LotMS finally! She was ... mostly entertained by how much I love them, I think. But it's okay, I love her anyway.

Thoughts on this viewing:

i. OH GOD I DON'T REMEMBER EVER BEING THIS DEPRESSED BY IT BEFORE. It's something about the clear narrative arc they set up here, and knowing that the happy ending they have here gets so much fucking worse right after this finishes. The whole plot of "triumphing through adversity to Candyland!" falls apart when you know everything Paramour is still to come. :(

(I know they all get the happy ending ten times ridiculously happier when you get to the current day.)

ii. Seriously, Schechter was so goddamn hot. The movie still makes me want all the h/c Brian/Gerard in the world, except now I feel kind of bad about it, since he's not involved with them anymore. :/

iii. Also depressing: Bert. That was a bad break-up.

iv. You guys, I remembered why I used to actually like Frank Iero! Who knew!

v. Needs moar Ray/Frank early days. Much, much moar.

vi. Gerard you are SO PRETTY. HOW ARE YOU SO PRETTY.

vii. Mikeyway is my favorite forever and ever, amen.

viii. I think my favorite era to watch now is actually early!TBP blond!Gerard. It makes me sad there'll probably never be another backstage thing like this.

ix. Fuck you all, Ray Toro is fucking hot.

YOU GUYS I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HEARD OR ANYTHING BUT THIS ONE BAND I LIKE? PLAYED A SHOW? AND APPARENTLY IT WAS AWESOME? IDK, IDK.

Bex has links to some pictures here. There are more around somewhere, but I've only seen them in a flocked journal and I'm too lazy to go to buzznet and get them myself. BUT OUR BOOOOOOOOOOOOYS! OMG YOU GUYS. They're so fucking awesome arggggh I can't stand it. Imagine how the fandom is going to react when the album comes out, or they actually go on tour.

Oh man and here is a really adorable entry about the Ways at ComicCon. There is pretty much nothing there that is not glee enducing. &Mikey; &Gerard;

Finally I would like to discuss this twitter exchange between my otp:

petewentz @mikeyway fruit brute! One song has to get written!

mikeyway @petewentz we'll have our first fruit brute practice after summer sonic/blink ends. I'll bring the zima!


Oh bandom, you bring me such joy.
schmerica: (touche)
I AM KEEPING TRACK OF YOUR VOTES IN IMP'S JOURNAL SO I KNOW WHO TO DEFRIEND.

PS, I STAND BEHIND EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER SAID ABOUT FRANK/GERARD. JUST BECAUSE YOU ALL SHARE THE MASS DELUSION YOUR KINK IS OKAY, IT DOESN'T MEAN IT IS TRUE. IT JUST MEANS I AM CHARLETON HESTON AND YOU ARE THE APES >:(

PPS NO I HAVE NOT BEEN DRINKING WHY DO YOU ASK

PPPS WHERE THE HELL IS LEA, ANYWAY? WHO SAID WE COULD HAVE A WAR WITHOUT HER? THIS IS NOT THE WAY THE WORLD WORKS

PPPPS MY SIDE HAS CUBA LIBRE CUPCAKES FOR EVERYONE

Hey, the story I fanmixed for got posted for [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang! It's called i don't like this party or the sound and it's by [livejournal.com profile] yellsurprise. The listed pairings are Pete/Patrick & Pete/Mikey (there's also a little unrequited Frank/Mikey) and ... okay, it has a lot of infidelity in it and it doesn't have such a happy ending, so if that squicks you you probably shouldn't read it? But if you're the kind of person who kind of loves poking your bruises as hard as you can (and I happen to be one of those people!), it's really well done and will completely wrench you the hell out. Also it has some really nice cameos from all sorts of different bandomy people (Ashlee, Cobras, some PatD, Lindsey, Alicia, Greta). Basically, you should check it out. And then you can download my fanmix, because I am actually really freaking proud of it. Yay!

This post wins the internet. There is nothing better than Nimoy in full Spock garb, breaking character to just grin. You may think there is something better? But you would be wrong. See also: approximately 2 minutes into this blooper reel. (I know there are lots of other Star Trek bloopers on youtube, but most of them seem to be impossible to watch because of of quality issues.)

Apparently my brain remembered today that it used to think about other fandoms, too, because I spent a little while earlier thinking about how I still wish there was a Waycest AU for "We Have Always Lived In the Castle." Man, that book was awesome.

Now back to watching TOS episodes.
schmerica: (frank needs a hug)
My favorite MCR twitters of the last few days:

I def just got out of talking to some dude by saying "no engles" ina wierd accent and I clearly have english words tattooed all over my body

I like this one because Frank is a DICK. Omigod, such a dick.

If I had my own alien race, instead of perfect bettie page bangs and pointed ears we all have sick pomps

I am about 90% sure that Mikeyway IS the last survivor of such a alien race.

Hey, when do we think Lyn-Z is due? End of the month? June?

In other fandoms: I heard for the first time William shatner's famous "sabotage"/"it sickens me" thing and that four minutes in the recording studio where he humiliates that guy making him do another line reading. How is he so amazingly douchey? ♥

Finally, this is the hottest Ben Browder has ever been, y/n/mfy?

Om nom nom )
schmerica: (p. wentz was here)
I was going to post about the bandom twitters, but to be honest there is not much to say beyond :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD. Over and over and over.

More important right now! [livejournal.com profile] happy_coconut is having some kind of crazy Supernatural nostalgia. She just put on "Salvation", the second-to-last episode from season 1. It's the one that starts with the "Carry On, My Wayward Son" song, which is the best part. :( I keep trying to ignore it and have it in the background, but I keep getting distracted by Papa Winchester. SERIOUSLY WTF JEFFREY DEAN MORGAN HOW ARE YOU SO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT. SHUT YOUR STUPID HOTASS FACE AND YOUR STUPID HOTASS VOICE UGH UGH UGH.

Seriously you guys how is he so hot. ;______; Why is Kelly torturing me like this.

In other news I miss my Amy. FOUR MONTHS until we live together! How crazy is that?

In conclusion, Mikeyway )
schmerica: (OH PETE WENTZ)
HERE IS A LIST OF THINGS I THOUGHT ABOUT TODAY:

1) Subjects I want to study and roll around in like a puppy in filth: medieval Celtic languages; translation theory; the history of Romanian; pidgins and creolization; nonstandard Englishes; language preservation and revitalization; languages and writing systems.

(LINGUISTICS ILU.)

2) Other things I want:

a. A BRENDON URIE OF MY OWN. Why so adorable on the Tonight Show? UGH SHUT YOUR STUPID FACE AND YOUR HOMOQUEERNESS AND YOUR ENTIRE SELF. Also I don't really like the song America's Suitehearts much in general, but Joe Troh looked hot, and Pete whirled around in a circle an awful lot without any rhythm related to the song, so I give the entire thing a thumbs up.

b. MORE WAYCEST. Seriously it has been forever you guys, write me some porn. Or if you want I will always accept Pete/Mikey shenanigans instead.

3) Everybody I love is in Boston this weekend. :( THEY HELD A MUSKRATE JAMBOREE AND I DIDN'T COME. There is nothing not right in the world. If I don't get plenty of drunken texts from people -- you know who you are -- I will hold a grudge forever.
schmerica: (mikeyway: lesbian)
So what are our thoughts on Joe Troh replying to Mikeyway's twitter with nothing but "Mikey Way" (not even any punctuation)?

Yesterday was actually a pretty good day at work, but that didn't stop me from whining to everyone all day long through text messages. "blah blah blah I'm bored blah blah blah i want fic blah blah PETE/MIKEY/GERARD AU GENDERSWAP PORN WHERE SOMEBODY GETS KNOCKED UP, WHO'S WITH ME? :D? :D?"

Today I have no work, though. Instead I have a [livejournal.com profile] speshope!!!! Life is so good, you guys.

I have decided my new goal is write a story by the end of the year. That is as far as I've gotten so far. I mean, details like "plot" and "fandom" and "characters" can all come later, right? Right.

The other day I spent the day with [livejournal.com profile] liviapenn. It was awesome! She showed me Man from UNCLE. Ilya Kuryakin be miiiiiiiine. David McCallum, how so hot in all ages?

ALSO yesterday during that texting frenzy I actually might have made the most offensive joke of my entire life. Luckily it was to [livejournal.com profile] loveyouallwrong so I think I am safe.
schmerica: (KEYBOARD MASH)
from Overheard in NYC:

Disgruntled woman: You know, you could take someone's eye out if you're not careful with that umbrella.
Umbrella-wielding man, cheerily: That is perfectly okay!



...lol.

I have work in a couple of hours! Dum de dum. Who wants to talk about HIMYM? The last episode made me flail all over the place and say "MY SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW" a whole lot. And like objectively I'm not even sure it was a good episode, but it doesn't matter! spoilers )

PS I finally watched the youtube clip of Ryan and Brendon doing their mtv playlist and jesus christ. RYAN ROSS HOW ARE YOU SUCH A FREAK? AND WHY IS IT ENDEARING?
