schmerica: (is anybody out there)
Apparently I commented half-asleep in one of my friend's journals last night, and it turned out to be mildly wanky? Or at least make a couple of other people pissy. It is probably wrong for me to admit that I find this hilarious, but I totally do. I'm never the wanky one! I just watch my friends do stupid shit and then bitch about people on AIM, you know?

Unrelatedly, earlier I was thinking about some real life stuff -- by which I mostly mean dudes -- and something occurred to me, and at the same exact time that I was thinking it made complete sense, I could tell that it was totally the sort of thing I would write into a story to show a character being screwed-up and stupid. WHATEVER, BRAIN. STUPID SELF-AWARENESS.

Once again Arrested Development proves it contains all of life's wisdom:

Tobias: You know, Lindsay, as a therapist, I have advised a number of couples to explore an open relationship where the couple remains emotionally committed, but free to explore extra-marital encounters.

Lindsay: Well, did it work for those people?

Tobias: No, it never does. I mean, these people somehow delude themselves into thinking it might, but.... but it might work for us.
schmerica: (everything awesome is cancelled)
I have reached that stage of sickness where the floor next to my bed is covered with scrunched up snotty tissues. I'M HOT STUFF, ALL RIGHT.

Bandom recasts on my friends list are making me happy. [ profile] beingothrwrldly is doing Homestar Runner in her comments, which yay. And [ profile] quettaser's post on Arrested Development is a couple days old now, but it still makes me shake with laughter every single time I think about it. Pete/Patrick twincest! Brendon is Annyong! Joe Troh as Buster to GERARD WAY'S LUCILLE BLUTH.

GERARD: You’ve ruined us.
BRIAN: I’ve ruined us? You got a lot of nerve, honey. The millions you pissed away on clothing and jewelry and the spa treatments...
GERARD: Yes, to keep you interested in the only thing you ever appreciated—my body.
BRIAN: Can I help it if you got a fantastic body?
GERARD: And you’re as powerful as a bear. My husband, the bear.
BRIAN: Spare me some honey, wife.
GERARD: Oh, I’ve missed you.

Can you really say your life was complete without that? I doubt it.

I was actually really pleasantly surprised by how many people were willing to read Gerard/Ray, considering it's not a big pairing. You cannot resist the OTP OF NO IRONY WHATSOEVER IN THEIR SOULS, YAY. Of course, now that I have posted that fic, I want nothing else but for people to write me tons of horribly schmoopy domestic sequels to it. This is why I need minions, clearly!
schmerica: (arrested: penus)
So I am making my way through season two Arrested Development once again -- man, it's ridiculous just how much awesomer and awesomer this show gets upon repeated viewings. Seriously, I could not love it more.

And this happened, of course:

[ profile] pearl_o: I am watching Arrested Development, and you know what?
[ profile] pearl_o: IN YOUR FACE.
[ profile] pearl_o: heeeeeeee.
[ profile] pearl_o: It was several times.
[ profile] ficbyzee: it was really only like once!

Hee. (The pairing is, of course, GOB/Michael, which keeps getting gayer and gayer. I still slightly prefer Michael/Lindsay and Michael/Maeby and George Michael/Maeby, but it is not as if there is not more than enough incest to go around!)

On today's media consumption: Green Arrow: Quiver is pretty cool, volume 1 of Y: the Last Man is awesome, and Arrested Development's "Righteous Brothers" is SUPER DUPER GAY.

On math: why so hard?

On my paper: HA. Sir Lanval/Launfal, you are my BITCH, do not even front! This paper is going to be cake. Eventually. Probably.
schmerica: (deadwood: trixie)
1. "Don't fuck with the fucking deity, Leon."

2. "Do you know where I can get one of those gold necklaces with a T on it?"
"That's a cross."
"Across from where?"

3. I had no idea Tracie Thoms was in The Devil Wears Prada. Huzzah for happy surprises.

4. Funny thing is, Joe Bean's never been to Arkansas.

5. This year is half over. There is no bad in that. I'll beat you yet, 2006!

6. I feel like I should be writing or vidding or doing something creative. Where is my fanbrain? Is it going to come back anytime soon?

7. My Farscape dvds I paid for a month ago still haven't arrived. Stupid ebay.

8. Bon Jovi makes me think of [ profile] lalejandra.

9. La la la, I am in the mood for juicy dS fic. Please to be providing for my whims on demand, fandom.

10. Compendium of Lost Words.

Here are some more notes I took while watching Arrested Development last night.

Early season 2 )

I just spent a bunch of money I probably shouldn't have getting books and comics and t-shirts. Ooops. Internet, why so tempting???

My math class ended at 9 am; that means it is now the weekend. Yays!
schmerica: (arrested: penus)
I have reached s2 on my marathon! Arrested Development really does reward multiple viewings. The first episode of s2, "The One Where Michael Leaves", spoilers )

Also, in the special features for season 1, Jason Bateman and Will Arnett are kind of really gay for each other.

The One Where They Build a House )

Other things: uh, the dialogue dubbing is seriously way obvious most of the time. And on second viewing, Michael is really kind of a big jerk.

Edited to add: You quaff the potion marked 'F/F'. It tastes like aeryn sun.
schmerica: (arrested: portugal)
1) Arrested Development is still an amazingly awesome show. In case you, you know, were living under a rock.

2) Meg Cabot's voice is exactly the same in pretty much all of her books. This is okay, because the fact that Heather Wells sounds exactly like all her teenage narrators except for the sex-having doesn't make it any less incredibly enjoyable.

3) Age of Bronze: A Thousand Ships is pretty cool. Mmmmmm, Trojan War. *orders second volume from amazon*

4) Sleater-Kinney is going on "indefinite hiatus". WAAAAAAAAAAAH.

5) The heat has broken here, oh frabjous day, calloo, callay!

6) You're pretty.

7) This morning my alarm didn't go off. I like up fifty minutes later and stared at horror at the time. It was set for the right time -- am, not pm. The alarm was turned on. And yet, it didn't wake me up. There was no noise coming from it at all. The only explanation I can think of for this is that it went off, I turned it off, and then turned it back on, but I am 99% sure that didn't happen. When I set it for two hours later, it went off perfectly, and I didn't miss that class.

Brain-bending pairing of the day: George O'Malley/Maeby Funke.
schmerica: (arrested: portugal)
schmerica: (pretty: maggie gyllenhaal glam)
I am now 100% caught up with every episode of Arrested Development every made. Which is exciting, but also strangely disorienting -- like, hi, that's it? There isn't any more? I have to wait and watch it every week now instead of stockpiling it for hours-long marathons? WEIRD. I guess I have to find something else to entertain me now? Um.
schmerica: (ds: secret mountie au)
Dude, Ann Veal's parents are Wash and Diane Court! WEIRD.

(My birthday was excellent and lovely and relaxing and comfy; thank you to all of you who gave me well wishes.)

Edited to add: Have now finished all of season two, and I have two things to say: a) this show is AWESOME and b) George Michael/Maeby WOOOOOOOOOO.
schmerica: (pretty: rachel mcadams)
The subject line is a big huge lie. LIE! The truth value is NIL.

In reality, I turned twenty-one lying on the couch in my parents' living room, watching Buster Bluth get his hand bitten off by a seal. I am sure you can see how that is PRACTICALLY the same thing, though!

In conclusion, BIRTHDAY.


(Random note: I am loving, but why are all the good songs unable to be bought on iTunes? It played me a cover of "Blitzkrieg Bop" the other day by a band called the Beautiful South and it was the best thing I have ever heard. *covets*)

Here is my list of every single book I read as a 20-year-old:

Books read, 12/13/2004-12/12/2005 )

This includes every single book I completed this year. This includes graphic novels, but not individual comic books, magazines, or anything like that. Short story collections only counted if I read every story.

Number of books read: 131
Number of books read for the first time: 122

The shortest book is Project Princess by Meg Cabot, which was under 70 pages; the longest was probably Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, which was 800 pages.

Incredible authors I found for the first time included Elinor Lipman, Laura Kinsale and Sarah Caudwell (the last of whom I've now devoured the entire catalog of). I finished the rest of the Jennifer Crusies I hadn't managed in fall 2004, and moved on into historical romance for the first time. I also devoured everything of Meg Cabot's, and continued with more girly YA lit with the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books, Guitar Girl, and Libba Bray's stuff. Plus, tons more Amelia Peabody.

10 other books from the above list that I enjoyed a lot and haven't mentioned yet in the summary: The Invention of Love, Tom Stoppard; As Meat Loves Salt, Maria McCann; Sunshine, Robin McKinley; We So Seldom Look on Love, Barbara Gowdy; A Hat Full of Sky, Terry Pratchett; The Egyptologist, Arthur Phillips; Ship Fever Andrea Barrett; The Moon and the Sun Vonda McIntyre; Hammered, Elizabeth Bear; The Lions of Al-Rassan, Guy Gavriel Kay.
schmerica: (other: taking notes)
I seriously cannot get over how much incest this show features. Because, seriously? SO MUCH INCEST

Kissing cousins! Twincest! Buster and Lucille's unnaturally involved relationship! Lindsay can fulfill that role for George Michael! Michael and Maeby have afternoon delight!

My lord, people, you could have gotten me watching this a long, long time ago if you had pimped properly.
schmerica: (other: monkey)
(Wow, Portia de Rossi's ex-girlfriend is way hotter than Ellen Degeneres, isn't she?)

Still watching Arrested Development! Yes! Hello, season 2!
schmerica: (pretty: gyllenhaals)
Sleep? During finals week? NO. Instead I will stay up to the wee hours of the morning watching more of the first season of Arrested Development!

Notes on five more episodes, which mainly consist of me quoting dialogue and cackling )
schmerica: (pretty: maggie gyllenhaal glam)
1) I have now seen the pilot and first five episodes of "Arrested Development", and it is brilliant, funny, original and incredibly incest-y. What's not to love?

2) Yesterday I also watched SGA 2x12. I can't help thinking the ideas behind this went something like spoilers )

3) It occurs to me after the fact that posting my weird Vecchio/Fraser/Kowalski pwp in the middle of the night in a weekend in December is possibly limiting my audience to a rather large degree.

4) Over the last two days I have read approximately 500 Dinosaur Comics strips. AWESOME.

5) Hey, was Fraser's baby sister really the original Elizabeth Weir on SG1?

6) I thought I had something really important to put here, but I cannot remember what it is at all. So instead, um. More picspam!

Screencaps of yay )

I have a very unfortunate lack of good Frannie screencaps. Woe!
schmerica: (princessbride: bad touch)
I think the Happy Holidays design on the top of the livejournal page is pretty, but I also suspect I will be rather sick of it by the end of the month.

Today I watched the first three episodes of Arrested Development from the first disc of the dvds. It was pretty awesome, as you guys have been claiming. But mostly it reminds me of [ profile] annakovsky's icons.

I just finished Shadowheart, by Laura Kinsale. spoilers )
