Because he's pretty and I need the cheering up and I'm not even sure it requires that much of an explanation.

Internets, because I'm bored as hell and have been having a pretty strenuous last week and a half, have another mancandy post.

Post ALL THE JOSH )

Dude, I don't even care that I'm like 3 years older than he is, let the perving party continue!

I only just realized that I forgot to mention how I've seen The Hunger Games twice now and it keeps giving me ALL THE #FEELINGZ

I can't remember all of the thoughts I had about it so for now I'll just leave a couple of pics/gifs of Josh Hutcherson here to squee about since I find him fucking disgustingly adorable.

There's a joke about buns in ovens in here somewhere… )

Alas, that's all I've got for the moment, so anyone who wants to donate their own pics/gifs/videos is welcome to do so. It says a great deal about his performance that he managed to convert a former diehard Gale fangirl into a Peeta fangirl (and a JHutch fangirl, of course).

So, flisties, what did y'all think? Does anyone else have ALL THE #FEELINGZ about it and want to vent? I need someone to squee and handflap with. In the mean time, have some Wilson Bethel to flesh out (ha!) this mancandy post a bit more.

P.S. - I'm midway through re-reading Catching Fire and holy shit I forgot how much the story of how Peeta falls for Katniss pulls at my hopeless romantic heartstrings *sigh*

P.P.S. - I should have some fic ready for y'all this week once I get off my poor overworked ass and finish addressing [livejournal.com profile] looleebelle's beta comments \o/

So I was watching this promo of NYC 22 (that we've all probably seen at least once already)  )

I have to confess, y'all, the part where Stark goes "It's drive time or overtime *busts out handcuffs* and I could use the money" left me almost totally paralyzed from the sheer volume of simultaneous dirty thoughts. I'd say that he's welcome to bust out the handcuffs and loom at me whenever he wants, but let's be real, this would probably be my reaction:

I would be the worst criminal ever (possibly deliberately) in that universe -- and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one. Just sayin'.

H'OKAY, internets, for those of you who haven't seen it yet (or can't due to country restrictions, blah blah blah), I took some screen caps of this NYC 22 featurette video...thingy

Cut to prevent autoplay )

[livejournal.com profile] looleebelle was ranting about how she couldn't see it, so I very nicely capped certain *ahem* pertinent sections for her -- and for y'all!

Complete with my usual flaily/capslocky commentary (liquid warning, obviously) )

I tried to get the least derpy shots of Stark that I possibly could but, amusingly, wound up getting amazingly derpy shots of everyone else in the process.

I'm theoretically supposed to be studying for a quiz I have tomorrow, but...

So a certain goddess-like flistie who shall remain nameless (*coughcough*[livejournal.com profile] eiirene*coughcough*) sent me something this morning that I think we could all appreciate. Feast your eyes, my fellow GK/AI/general Stark fangirls, on some truly quality hand/arm/tattoo porn:

Photobucket

This was the exact face I made when I clicked the link in her message:

Photobucket

I'm not going to say how LONG I had that look on my face because it's just embarrassing.

In other news, internets, y'all remember how excited I was when I realized I have neither class nor work nor my internship on Fridays? And how I thought this would give me ALL the extra free time? Oof, I was way off -- my schedule runs me so ragged now that I usually spend Fridays sleeping off the rest of the week. If this is what it's like to be an adult, then all the more reason to consider doing a Van Wilder and staying in college for another 3-4 years *headscreen*

Finally, on a totally unrelated note, Le Boyfriend and I saw The Woman in Black yesterday (because we love us some horror movies and I love me some DanRad). From my Facebook:

"The Woman In Black, a period horror piece that mostly resorted to jump scares (as you do in horror movies these days), but kept some of them subtle and timed them well enough to build fairly decent suspense. Plus all the bonus footage of Daniel Radcliffe brooding picturesquely off into the distance, probably about how hard it is to be richer than God. A solid 7.5/10, and actually worth the movie ticket price."

Anyone else here seen it? What'd y'all think?

P.S. - The Superbowl is tomorrow and, for once, I give precisely zero fucks about it. Why, you ask? Because I'm sick to death of ESPN worshipping the Patriots (and Tom Brady) and Eli Manning (of the Giants) just annoys me on general principle and okay, I'm more than a little bitter about how the Cowboys did this season because COME ON NOW. I think I'll be watching the Puppy Bowl this year for the sake of my blood pressure.

Internets, do any of you ever have times in life where RL is kicking your ass so hard that you start to feel like you're losing your ability to fangirl(/boy)? Well, I've sorta been feeling that way lately, which culminated in last night; as I was studying for my test today, I found myself trying to remember if Stark's birthday (and thus my usual birthday post) had passed without me noticing ("I know it's in September, but when...")

Welp, funnily enough, it's today! Guess I haven't lost my fangirl mojo after all :D As such, have a brief celebratory pic/gif-spam (like I need an excuse, lol)

Breaking fangirl hearts and ovaries the world over since 1978...(WARNING: Seriously image and gif heavy, not for the faint of internet connection) )

So I decided to do a Fassbender picspam today in order to keep myself from further wistful sighing and waiting around for more pictures from Huertas. Well, that and because Fassbender is a gorgeous ginger sex beast.

Here thar be mancandy... )

....*dreamy sigh*

Day Sixteen: Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

Depends on my mood, really. Sometimes I like them and see them as an interesting thought exercise (how to convey what's going on in the story without giving everything away), and sometimes they just annoy the bejeezus out of me when I can't seem to get them to sound right. As for how I come up with them, I came across my usual, "In which ______" format from some fantasy book I read long ago that titled its chapters that way, and then I throw in some bad puns and/or wordplay to cover the rest. For instance, when I was doing the summaries in Le Batfic I wound up making completely obvious puns about decks of cards when the Joker was involved the chapter. Sort of silly, but it's better than some summaries I've seen that tell you precisely squat about the fic itself.

In this case, for the amazing gifs I find just in the course of scrolling through said flist.

REASON THE FIRST:

Photobucket
Yes, that is ASkars, and yes, he is indeed doing what you think he's doing. I can't decide if this makes him a funny drunk, an affectionate drunk, or both.

ETA: True story, I found this one just now and I actually choked on a mouthful of my chocolate ice cream when I realized what I was looking at.[/riveting tale, old bean]


REASON THE SECOND:

Photobucket
One of the primary reasons I want to see Thor again, no other explanation needed

Allow Snape to express my sentiments about Chris Hemsworth and his glorious, lickable abs...

That is all, you may now return to your regularly scheduled internet wanderings.

You know you've stopped giving a fuck about finals when you finish a 110 question multiple choice exam in just under an hour (this was for Abnormal Psych, in which I have a 97 average -- I could literally have skipped the final and still made a B). All that remains now is my Sociology final tomorrow (which is largely common sense) and my Sports Psych final on Friday (which is open note). Let the not giving a fuck continue!

But enough about my school work, it bores the hell out of me so I can't even imagine what it does to y'all. MOVING ON.

So, according to certain sources (scroll down to the CBS section), it appears that the odds of Rookies getting picked up (and running) are actually pretty good. Which, of course, means we fangirls stand a good chance of getting this on our T.V. screens on a weekly basis:

TAKE ME AWAY, OFFICER )

Photobucket

Lawd have mercy, pictures like that make a glamorous life of crime seem unbelievably tempting. And just think, if the show gets picked up then we'll have even more pictures like this one (or gifs, even....*_____*)

Unfortunately, that's really all I have for the moment since my life is currently going through a spectacularly boring period (and my muse is struggling a bit, so I can't even post fic to compensate). Oh well, maybe I'll do a lyrics challenge or a movie quote challenge at some point soon (I noticed the movie thing has been making the rounds again).

I have three things to say about it:

1) There are probably laws against the things I wanted to do to Chris Hemsworth and his glorious lickable abs. This was me during that whole shirtless scene:

Photobucket

2) Surprise Skarsdad! (o hai there Stellan)

3) WHY WAS I NOT INFORMED THAT GILDEROY LOCKHART DIRECTED THIS MOVIE?!


That is all. I now return you to your regularly scheduled internetting.

Cheers.

P.S. - See the previous post for slightly more coherence and slightly less inappropriate lusting after Chris Hemsworth.

So, um, I just came across a couple of pictures over at [livejournal.com profile] stark_daily from American Idiot's closing night that I wanted to discuss and flail over, because it's me.

1) A miracle has occurred! )

2) Perhaps someone could clarify this one for me... )

That's all for now. Stay tuned for more fic of various varieties and, in the mean time, see previous posts for...

Argh, [livejournal.com profile] stark_daily just provided me with yet another reason I should live in California (or, in this particular case, that I should move to California and invent time travel):

Also known as 'living proof that fedoras will never, EVER not be awesome'... )

...*sigh*
Photobucket

I choose to use this as a bright spot to balance out the fact that the sirens of passing ambulances/police cars have been making my two-houses-down-neighbor's blood hound howl all goddamn day.

Finally, in other news, a few things:

- PJ appears to be back on Tumblr (play nice, y'all, I swear to God I'll lose my shit if creepy stalkers scare him off the internet again)
- Real!Nate has a Twitter. This has to delight and amuse someone else as much as it does me. (see above point re: playing nice) (ETA: Apparently this has existed for months now and I just missed it because no one ever tells me anything, but it's cool anyway damn it!)
- For those who didn't know, someone thought it would be a good idea to threaten Rudy (and real!Ray) on Facebook. Really. Wackiness ensued but, thankfully, it appears to be over now.

Put down/swallow any and all food or drink you have right now before you click the cut (Edit: or the comments). I'm serious.

Mother of God.... )

You're welcome.

THING THE FIRST: Somehow, I'm still sick. Either this is the world's most persistent head/chest cold or I'm secretly dying, I don't even know anymore. I just know that whatever it is leaves me avoiding deep breaths so I don't have another coughing fit.


THING THE SECOND: It snowed here! Well, only a little and none of it even tried to stick, but still, snow!


THING THE THIRD: [livejournal.com profile] stark_daily is the best comm ever, because it showed me these

In which Stark is dressed like entirely too many boys I went to high school with... )

And bonus Pawel!

In which Pawel is his usual disgustingly adorable self... )

Oh GK cast, how so stupefyingly attractive and generally awesome?


THING THE FOURTH: Le Boyfriend and I watched The Last Exorcism last night. What in the actual fuck was that ending? I mean really, I realize Eli Roth had a hand in making this movie and so of course it's going to have some questionable elements, but still.


And now back to lying in bed and trying not to breathe too deeply. Ugh.
