STARK BUNKER SANDS EXPLAIN YOURSELF THIS INSTANT
emerald_skies: (Default)

Read this now, thank me (and Tumblr) later. It talks about Stark's high school years and he got arrested and it was for the dorkiest white boy reason ever and it basically made me make completely embarrassing squeaky noises in public and JUST READ IT OKAY.

Okay, so, can we please skip how hilariously awful I am at updating and talk about how the GK boys (sans ASkars *sadface*) went to see Stark in Kinky Boots and generally bro around just like old times? God, I miss them and I miss how fandom was before it got all quiet around here and just...ARGH...feelings.

In real life news, I got into physical therapy assistant school! (Which I'll be using to pay for a Master's degree later and so on). I start in August and it's going to be a full time program so there's really no point in me looking for a full-time job anymore, so that's been a big load off of my otherwise towering mountain of anxiety about the general state of my life. Also I'm pretty sure part of why this feels so good is because I've spent basically my whole life being a student and I feel like I'm not very good at being anything else, but still, yay for not failing at life!

P.S. - God damn it, Stark looks like he's 18 again, HOW IS LIFE THIS GODDAMN UNFAIR?

P.P.S. - IS ANYONE ELSE AS EXCITED AS I AM ABOUT THE GK REWATCH? :D

In which Stark records/performs Soul of a Man and I die of about six separate aneurysms and then melt into a tiny little puddle of #feelingz )

This was basically my exact reaction through the entire thing

Did anyone else watch the Tony awards last night? Because I did and on the whole it was pretty good and Kinky Boots won a gazillion things just like I wanted it to. Alas, Stark didn't win (the nomination is still nice, though), but Billy Porter's acceptance speech melted my heart into a little puddle of feelings so I wasn't even mad really. Plus Stark winked at the camera. No joke.

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!) )

Because [livejournal.com profile] jean_iris is a horrible enabling enabler person and keeps posting these on my Twitter.

It really just isn't fair that someone who actually exists gets to be so criminally good-looking and NOT a jerk )

Oh Stark, don't ever change (which, at this point, is looking pretty likely, damn him).

P.S. - I mean this in a totally non-creepy/just curious way: does anyone know what his dad looked like? I've seen his mother because their family is kind of a big deal down here (she's even been in the paper before) but I don't think I've ever seen his dad...Go figure.

Stark Sands? In my ONTD?

It's more likely than you think.

Who are all these other Stark fangirls there (I thought there were maybe five of us tops) and why don't I know them?

P.S. - What exactly is happening with Inside Llewyn Davis? Is this going to be another one of those damn movies I want to see that only comes out in New York and L.A.?

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.

YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS, HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS, AN OFFICIAL/LEGIT VIDEO OF AMERICAN IDIOT WITH THE ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST IS COMING!!!!!!!

The only thing about this that falls short of my reaction is a high pitched noise I made that I'm pretty sure only dogs could hear

Also Stark is doing things again (for those who didn't know) )

Clearly the universe loves me and wants me to be happy, at least for the moment.

P.S. - Am I the only one who thinks Stark's obvious Gomer Pyle impression came out sounding a little like Kermit the Frog instead? And did this leave anyone else with a burning desire to hear him sing It Ain't Easy Being Green? ...just me? Alrighty then.

So I came home from work today to find that [livejournal.com profile] pjvilar had posted this lovely, lovely fabulousness )

Two things:

1) The amount of gleeful cackling and dopey grinning this video got out of me was the perfect way to unwind from a pretty hectic work week
2) I'm not sure how I feel about the fact that Stark looks better in makeup than I do AND dances better in heels than I do. Seriously though, how is he even real?

Bonus third thing:

Photobucket
Because words just can't capture how magical this is and how many of my possessions I'm considering selling to go see it

So many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pjvilar (and indirectly [livejournal.com profile] eiirene) for making my week and generally being all around awesome. Has anyone made gifs from this yet?

YOU GUYS, I'VE BEEN HAVING THE BEST FUCKING DAY EVER. Why, you ask?

Well, for starters, I FINISHED A FIC I HADN'T TOUCHED IN ALMOST A YEAR (especially relevant to [livejournal.com profile] mcl4r3n's interests *wink*). I MADE WORDS. I just need someone to look over them to make sure they don't utterly suck but that's neither here nor there because WOOOOOOORDS.

AND THEN THIS HAPPENED. )

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!

That being said, have a Stark video to make up for this brief moment of whining. Cut to prevent autoplay and formatting wonkiness )

So I watched the pilot episode of NYC 22 (as if I would miss it) and, on the whole, I found it surprisingly enjoyable. I went in fully expecting it to suck and privately dreading its inevitable premature cancellation, but the first episode was very encouraging; it moved along at a pretty decent clip without becoming incomprehensible (a lot of pilots try to do too much too soon) and set up a few potentially good story arcs.

My sole nitpick with it -- besides the extreme under-use of Stark, of course -- was that I'm pretty sure I can predict every rookie's early story arc based on these set-ups. Cut for those who haven't seen it yet )

We'll see if I'm right.

Anyone else out there have thoughts/#feelingz about it? TELL ME *grabby hands* In the mean time, I'll just be over here praying desperately for more looming and threatening and producing of handcuffs.

Internets, it just hit me this morning that, one month from today, I'll have graduated from uni (with a motherfucking degree and everything).

…so why do I suddenly feel like I don't know anything? Is this normal, or am I just being neurotic and insane again?


In other news, I saw two movies this weekend: Cabin in the Woods (possibly the biggest meta-movie I've ever seen) and Detention. For those of you unfamiliar with Detention, one of its chief draws for me was this darling little fella:

Photobucket
This gif actually sums up my reaction to the movie pretty well

It was easily one of the top 3 weirdest movies I've ever seen in my entire life and I spent at least half of it feeling completely lost, but I had an absolute blast anyway. It's a limited release, but if any of y'all happen to find yourself near a city playing it and you have the time/the means, I highly recommend checking it out.


Now if y'all will excuse me, I'll just be over here in the corner debating which show to watch first out of the 3 I have set to DVR in the same time slot tonight -- The Borgias, Mad Men, or NYC 22. Actually, let's be real, I think we all know what I'm realistically going to pick…

For my non-US flisties, this means my uni is officially praising me for being a horrible overachieving braniac with no life to speak of. I even get a shiny rope to wear with my cap and gown at graduation! \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:

Photobucket

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'.
