So, for those who haven't heard, Stark is going to the Tonys again because Kinky Boots is up for a gazillion awards (deservedly so, from the sound of it) and he himself is one of them (Best Actor in a Leading Role). Oh God, I hope he wins or, at the very least, that Kinky Boots gets Best Musical so that Bring It On: The Musical (oh god why is this even a thing) doesn't get it.

But I mostly want Stark to win because OH MY GOD IMAGINE THE STUPIDLY ADORABLE SPEECH. IMAGINE IT. IT MIGHT EVEN INVOLVE THIS LOOK:

We should totally have a virtual Tonys watch party or something (I CAN BRING GRAPE SODA!) )

So I saw The Host with Le Boyfriend yesterday (bless him for going along to some terrible movies just so I can fangirl) and…wow. I have a truly astonishing streak of masochism when it comes to fangirling actors I like (but we know this already). Max Irons was kind of disappointing, but Jake Abel was pretty good in spite of the crappy material and looks like a really good kisser and Saiorse Ronan did the best she could, but the whole thing was kind of a hilarious mess of random punching and even more random making out. Worth renting just for a cute guy fix and for the lolz, if anything.

(Side note: People who still watch SPN, is Adam/Michael still languishing down in Hell? I might be persuaded to pick it up again if he comes back…)

In real world news, I still don't have a job yet but one of my RL friends is going to try to pull some strings for me, so we'll see how that turns out. In the mean time, I interviewed for PTA school a couple of days ago and feel pretty good about it, so I get to spend the next couple of weeks doing jury duty and waiting to find out if I got in or not IN ADDITION to hoping I can finally get a job. I guess this is where the frantic praying and nursing of ulcers comes in?

H'OKAY, so, internets, I've finally managed to catch up on some of the shows I used to talk about on here! I'm not sure if I'm quite up to doing reaction posts again or anything like that, but I feel even this is progress given the titanic funk I've been in lately.

Hart of Dixie )

Glee )

There are probably more shows that I should be catching up on but I can't remember them at the moment (did I ever talk about Sons of Anarchy? I'm still behind on that…). In the mean time, I'll just be over here re-reading some of my Marine books so that I can finally get Tunny through boot camp/SOI/Recon training and into Iraq so that this fucking crossover will stop making me feel like such a failboat. Ta!

P.P.S. - ...Why can't I stop looking at that picture they have of him?

EDIT: Awwww, he was worried people would be put off by Tunny? I loved the shit out of Tunny (and still do, even). Bless his stupidly adorable heart.

Job hunt update: I've now applied to 8 listings, including two that are 45 minutes away on a good day. That is how fucking desperate I am. But enough about that, on to the actual point of this post!

So basically, in my current state of unemployed slug-dom, I started marathoning Nip/Tuck on Netflix and have become horribly, horribly addicted to it. If y'all haven't tried it, I highly recommend it; it's by Troll Murphy Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk and it's actually a lot wittier and smarter than Glee but still retains a lot of the same crack-tastic-what-is-this-I-can't-even moments. I also love it because it is the closest thing I've ever seen to televised fanfiction, including implications that the two leads are gay (or at least that one is gay for the other), long held het-crushes, threesomes, hurt/comfort, etc.

In the context of this particular episode, Stark turns up as one lead's youngest son as an adult in the far future who was born with ectrodactyly in both hands (one is surgically fixed at birth, and this ep checks in just before he's about to get the other fixed and is dealing with the emotional implications of it). He was equal parts adorable and snarky and basically one of my favorite side characters ever, but this episode also was fun because of all the great extreme closeups and picturesque brooding -- some of which I took the liberty of screen-capping for y'all.

Conor McNamara, 2026 )

Feel free to judge me for taking 17 screen caps from about 20 total minutes of screen time, I'm fully aware it's a little bit sad.

On the off chance anyone wants to nick a few of these for fan art/icon/etc purposes, go right ahead and don't worry about credit or anything because I'm sure a thousand virtually identical other screen caps from the same episode are out there too. Enjoy!

Random RL Story: I almost called the cops on my temporary neighbors (explanation later in post) because someone somewhere on the block was running their weed whacker at 4:30 this morning. The only thing that stopped me was the realization that dealing with all of that would involve more staying awake than I was willing to do at the time. Unfortunately, by the time I reached this decision, being so hacked off at whoever it was left me too energized to go back to sleep.

Photobucket

ANYWAY.

Ugh, good lord, how do I go from posting 4 times in one week to zero in just over a week? I couldn't even pull something fannish off the top of my head just to give some sign I'm alive. On a more interesting (in theory) note…

Things I've done:

Saw Prometheus
Saw Brave (twice and OH GOD SO MANY #FEELINGZ)
Started Breaking Bad (the irony of how addicting it is isn't lost on me)

Things I plan to do:

See Magic Mike
See Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (even though I heard it sucks)
See The Dark Knight Rises
Catch up on True Blood
Catch up on The Borgias
Pack for family vacation to Mountainous Bumfuck, Colorado

I realize I've been shit at keeping up an active presence on LJ lately and rest assured, internets, I'm doing my best to get better at it. I'm not busy anymore, I'm mostly just depressed and sleep deprived and the only remotely eventful thing going on in my life right now involves house-sitting for some family friends. Seriously.

I know this is going to sound paranoid and weird, but from time to time I've wondered how the FBI/CIA/etc. would react if they were indeed monitoring my internet use. Mostly, I think they'd be bored as shit, but sometimes it's fun to imagine.

I think it would go a little something like this… )

Just in case anyone wondered if I have a bit of an overactive imagination...

In other news, I've recently seen Prometheus and Men in Black 3 and have started watching Californication (the lattermost at the behest of two of my former coworkers). I initially avoided Californication because I thought, "No one deserves to see that much of David Duchovny's bare ass", but I gave it a chance and it's actually pretty fucking funny, definitely shades of Six Feet Under in terms of dialogue. Sure, there's really a spectacular amount of T&A, but enough of us watch things like True Blood and The Borgias that I don't think it'll pose a huge issue to anyone.

In other other news, my muse still hasn't come back from fucking off earlier this semester. I actually stared at a Googledoc of one of my fics today and almost started crying from sheer frustration. It figures that all I wanted to do was write and fuck around in fandom when I was completely swamped and now, now that I actually have the time to do that, I can't muster up the motivation or the necessary creative spark. What the fuck, universe?

THING THE FIRST: Dear university athletic training program director,

Remember how you said my biggest failing was that I needed to work on my people skills? Well I have some news for you; one client I saw at work today was the third person who told me they made a point of booking me specifically. Each of my "regulars" (in different words) said they liked me enough to book me again because I'm a) a good teacher, b) encouraging/nice/funny, and c) patient. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that sounds to me like I have pretty good people skills.

Photobucket
Just sayin'.

--[livejournal.com profile] emerald_skies (who might still be a little bitter about being rejected twice...)


THING THE SECOND: Remember that test I mentioned having on Tuesday that I was convinced I flunked? Well....here are my grades for that class:

Exam 1 (with approx. one week of studying): 75
Exam 2 (with approx. one week of studying): 82
Exam 3 (the one I mislabeled on my calendar) (with one night of studying): ....91

I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW MY BRAIN WORKS OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT I AM CLEARLY SOME SORT OF GENIUS.

THING THE SECOND (PART TWO): Apparently my grade is the reason the professor didn't grade on a curve for this exam. I am THAT student, the curve-wrecking cyborg, for once in my life.


So yeah, between those two things (and other little insignificant victories), things actually sort of looked up today. Here's hoping it's the start of a trend, yeah?

By Raptor Jesus, it seems it really WAS the Russians coming after LJ again.

Seriously? Again with this shit? For one thing, I thought Russian journals had their own server, so why take the whole site down? That shit's just sloppy. Being the raging internet addict that I am, I'm pretty much like this after four days without LJ:

Photobucket

Russia might find itself in a wide world of hurt if it pulls shit like this again *mutters* Ditto re: LJ if it doesn't give us free paid time to make up for this crap.

On a brighter note, talking to [livejournal.com profile] looleebelle about various American Idiot-related things has intensified my pathetic fangirlishness of it -- and of Michael Esper (probably because I'm suffering from Stark withdrawal *facepalm*) So, to get a bit of it out of my system, I decided to a picspam of a certain spiky haired Twitter addict.

'Take away the sensation inside...' )

I'm not exactly sure when he moved past adorable and into lickable in my head, but I'm pretty sure it's all [livejournal.com profile] looleebelle's fault.

Finally, I rented a few movies in the last couple of days and figured I'd post my (brief) thoughts about them:

- The Rite - It's pretty much The Exorcist with Anthony Hopkins where Max von Sydow should be, but it's still pretty decent -- pretty much just because of Anthony Hopkins. A few moments were legit unsettling, and it's definitely pretty entertaining if you're into the whole "crisis of faith" trope, my major problem with it was that the ending seemed kind of rushed (like the writers ran out of steam or something). 7/10 over all, worth renting if you're bored and looking for something to watch.

- Mirrors 2 (because Le Boyfriend and I enjoyed the original) - This one's more a study in cool CGI and camera tricks -- and watching people die in really fucking messy ways. The plot is kind of blah, but it does succeed in building enough emotion that Le Boyfriend and I actually cheered when one of the surprise antagonists got his comeuppance. Plus, like I said, the effects were really pretty cool for such a low budget movie. 7.5/10 overall, mostly worth watching if you're a sucker for effects and camera tricks like me.

- My Soul To Take - Okay, I confess, I'm a horror movie wonk, so the fact that Wes Craven directed this made me rent it anyway in spite of all the godawful reviews it got. It managed to pull a pretty nice last minute twist at the end (in terms of who the killer was) and there were a lot of classic Wes Craven style tropes, but there was SO much blood that eventually it stopped being gory and started being just plain ridiculous. My other problem (and Le Boyfriend's) was that it tried to do too many ideas at once, so the movie felt a bit cluttered as a result -- if someone had sat down with the writers and streamlined it somewhat, I think this could have been really, really good. 6.5/10, I'd only recommend this if you're a diehard Wes Craven fan or a horror movie wonk in general (don't go into this one expecting Oscar material or something).

...So those weren't exactly brief, but hopefully they were entertaining!

So, I finally succeeded in unfucking my Twitter -- in other words, I can now follow y'all back and whatnot. I basically feel like this right now:

Photobucket

That being said, feel free to follow me (just tell me who you are so I don't have a paranoid freak out) and/or rec me various pages to follow (since the "People to follow" thing keeps giving me an error page). May as well fully embrace the addict lifestyle, yeah?

Soooo yeah, Le Boyfriend and I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 together at midnight last night (er...this morning). It was pretty intense, honestly, and there was the usual requisite couple of people who showed up in interesting costumes, including a guy in the row in front of us who was in PERFECT Voldemort costume (right down to a bald cap glued against his skin) and a girl waiting to claim her tickets in a full-body Snitch outfit (gold unitard, wings, the works).

ANYWAY, I promised a reaction post, so here we go *cracks knuckles* )

This is a fairly skeletal reaction post, I'll probably add more things as they occur to me so feel free to check back from time to time or, if anyone feels so inclined, share your own noteworthy moments!

Finally, for anyone that's still reading this post by this point, here's the next part of the thirty day writing meme:

Day Twenty-Two: Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

Um...nope. I'd like to, for sure, but I never seem to have a substantial plot bunny at the time that these things go down. Then there's also the fact that I'm horribly insecure about my shorter works (if you can call them that) even at the best of times, and also the lingering paranoia that my muse would crap out on me THE MOMENT I finished signing up for the fucking thing. Like I said in some post before; my neuroses, they are many.

Writing Is Hard Moment #829: Finally, finally getting to the sexytimes portion of a fic and realizing that you can't decide what (or who *snicker*) you want the characters to do first. You'd think it wouldn't be that difficult, and yet? Instant headache.

Anyway, has anyone ever read anything written by David Foster Wallace? I c/p'ed a bit of Idiot fic into this writing analysis thingy I got from [livejournal.com profile] l_s_d_me and it said I write like David Foster Wallace. I have fuck all clue who that is or what his writing style is like (aside from the fact that it's evidently similar to mine), so whether this is a good or bad thing remains to be seen.

In other news, I realized yesterday that I have Chemistry lab at 8:00 a.m. the morning after Le Boyfriend and I are supposed to go to a midnight showing of DH:P2. That's going to be...interesting....

Nope, still worth it.

That being said, moar meme!

Day Seventeen: Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?

Oh my God, a relatively simple question for once! Overall titles are usually pretty easy for me, but I go fucking nuts if I try to do chapter titles. Idk why, I just suck at them, so I generally don't do them unless I have some sort of miraculous "Eureka!" moment.


Welp, that's about it. And now back to intermittent bouts of writing and trawling Facebook/Twitter for new pictures to fangirl over. Honestly, I should just give in and get a Twitter, the only reasons I haven't yet are a) because I'm already horribly addicted to the internet as it is and b) my life is so rampantly uninteresting that I probably wouldn't be able to think of anything to post on it. I'd just wind up using it to stalk celebrities I like *headdesk* On the other hand, it could be a chance to hone my skills at comedy through brevity/abruptness.

(Side note: God, I miss Generation Kill *sigh* I wish it could have gone on forever somehow)

Anyway, here's the next installment of the thirty day writing meme:

Day Fourteen: How high are you comfortable with going? Have you ever written higher? If you're comfortable with NC-17, have you ever been shocked by finding that the story you're writing is G-rated instead?

Another multi-parter, I see.

1) I've written NC-17 enough times before that I suppose you could call me comfortable with it, provided my head's in the right place. I can't do it on command though, otherwise things that sound really hot in my head come out sounding really stupid in print.
2) I'm not entirely sure it's possible to top NC-17...
3) I wouldn't go so far as to say I've gone from NC-17 to G, but yeah, I've had stories start out raunchy in my head but wind up relatively tame (PG-13ish) in print, either because my porn muse crapped out on me or because the story was one of those flashes of inspiration that almost make your fingers move independently of your brain. Like, the story just flowed that way in an organic sense, I don't know how else to explain it.

Finally, appropo of nothing, I heard there's a fifth Final Destination movie coming out (or I was reminded, I may have seen posters of it before and just forgotten). Really? Really? Seriously, by this point it's time to either change the title or abandon all pretense and call the next one Final Destination 6: Trolololol.[/fascinating mini rant of the day]

I had four straight hours of chemistry lab this morning. Four. Straight. Hours. It was mostly spent tediously rinsing and re-rinsing test tubes to mix 36 different combinations of the same six chemicals (and their various ionized forms). SO TEDIOUS GOOD GOD WHY. Also, while I'm on the subject, a letter... )

And then, after that, I only got about 45 minutes to lie on the couch and let my brain re-solidify before I had to run a bunch of time-consuming errands (like a motherfucking adult). So, as a result, I came home with a whopping tension headache and an utter lack of will to do anything that didn't involve as little movement or brain wave activity as possible. I wound up passing out for three and a half hours without even meaning to -_-

MOVING ON FROM THE WHINING, here's some more of my thirty day writing meme:

Day Eight: Do you write OCs? And if so, what do you do to make certain they're not Mary Sues, and if not, explain your thoughts on OCs.

Oh boy, um...not really? Seven-ish years of being in fandom has somehow unconsciously drummed it into my head that it's pretty much impossible to write an OC without them turning into a Mary Sue/Gary Stu. The funny thing is, I detest that mentality on a conscious level, but I guess hearing about it enough combined just perfectly with my tiny, fragile creative ego such that I virtually never attempt OCs. On the other hand, I do have one other conscious reason why I don't do it; I feel like it takes my focus away from other characters. So, basically, I usually feel like I'm too A.D.D. to handle it :P

As for other people writing OCs, I say "why not?" If you can sell me on the OC without removing tons of focus from the canon characters or turning the character into an utter Mary Sue/Gary Stu, I'll cheerfully read it and salute you for it!


Finally, I have a question/idea of a sort; how are y'all's muses doing? Anyone bored and looking for something small to write? I ask because I was thinking of hosting something of a mini writing meme on here where interested parties could comment with a fandom they want to write in, and I would respond with a few lines of song lyrics and a pairing from that fandom, then you guys could answer back with comment fic of whatever length you want (at whatever pace you like).

Then again, this might not be the best idea, the last prompt I gave turned into roughly six thousand words of porn (in essence, my prompts seem to take on a mind of their own). Idk, let me know what y'all think.

Just because I'm feeling nostalgic, have an Idiot gif of Stark being molested by a horde of girls in sparkly negligees:

Photobucket

Now, for those who are unfamiliar with American Idiot, these are girls that came out of the T.V. when his character was channelsurfing and settled on an Army recruitment commercial. Yeah. Amazingly, this wasn't even the weirdest part of the show.

emerald_skies: (Default)
In the course of poking around on [livejournal.com profile] fandomsecrets, I stumbled across this secret, and wound up musing over it to an unexpected degree of depth. It's not problematic or any sort of -ist, it just raises some interesting questions. Is Erik evil or simply...rash? If Charles isn't good, then what is he exactly? Human (personality-wise, at least)? I'm still forming my own conclusions, but I'd be curious to hear what anyone else 'round these parts has to say on the subject. Feel free to go by movie or comic book canon (or, for the exceptionally daring, compare both), whichever seems more thought-provoking to you.

...oh dear God, I'm such a raging nerd. A raging nerd who still needs to catch up on True Blood (and maybe post some fic again sometime before doomsday) *headdesk*

In the interest of procrastinating, have more of a thirty-day meme I've been doing!

Day Five: If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?

Apologies for yet another boring answer, but I don't think this has ever happened to me before. A couple of times, I'll be in the middle of writing one story and then some blurb for another fic pops into my head (which I then dutifully jot down in a Word doc), but that's not really character specific...

Oh lawd hammercy, [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants person, there are so many things wrong with this that I don't even know where to start.

I suppose my biggest sticking point with the post is this; assuming that the heteroflexible character in question isn't simply confused (hey, sometimes it takes a few relationships for people to figure things out), having them try to make a het relationship work anyway doesn't necessarily make them a manipulative asshole. They could be in denial, for instance, or just plain scared of what their nearest and dearest would think if said character came out in a more public sort of way.

Long story short, doing something like what you're describing doesn't make the character an asshole -- it makes them human. Sometimes people just do ill-advised, seemingly shitty things to each other. It sucks, but there it is.

(Don't get me wrong, I'm totally in agreement over the "bisexuals exist" thing, but the other stuff is just...facepalm-inducing)

My wording might change a little bit since I started writing this post pretty early in the morning and it's a touchy subject, so please forgive me if I said something wrong somewhere.

ANYWAY, I have a question for any of my flisters who've done the grad school application process in America recently. I'm not done with my undergrad yet, and I want to wait a couple of years to go to grad school so that I can have some time to build money, maturity, and a more impressive resumé -- can I take the GRE within the next year or so and still have it count a few years later? Or would I have to take it again closer to when I actually applied? In other words, is there some sort of time limit on GRE scores or do they last forever? Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

Finally, I decided to try one of those thirty day meme things (I gacked this one from [livejournal.com profile] eviinsanemonkey):

Day One: How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

Oh man, let's see if I can even remember back that far, it was seven-ish years ago (OhGodI'mold). My first fandom was Harry Potter, of course, and I think I got pulled in because one of my RL friends showed me the Draco Trilogy (in all its plagiarized glory, lol). I first got into actually writing it after I finished reading Underwater Light -- so long ago that I remember waiting with bated breath for Maya to post the next installments on the internet (SOVERYOLD) -- which subsequently inspired the hell out of me. So, I suppose what pulled me in was the sense of humor that the better fan authors had. The rest, as they say, is history.

Also, it just occurred to me that I think I still have pdfs of the Draco Trilogy (lol, I know) and the complete works of Maya lying around here somewhere. It may be time to dust those off...

The other days )

We'll see if that helps me to post more regularly on here.

That's all! Have a video of chinchillas taking a dustbath (aka the cutest thing EVER) for your time.
