So, after ages and ages of pressure from certain internet friends who shall remain nameless (but know who they are), I finally caved and poked my head into the hockey fandom...and then promptly jumped into it with both feet. It's where half the GK fandom went and I really missed them and also I was plied with pictures of ridiculously good-looking hockey players. It's been a nice little morale booster and the fic is awesome and ideas for my own fics have been stirring in my head since I gave hockey fandom a try, so, all things considered, I'm sorry I didn't try it sooner.

How's things over on LJ?

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.

As promised, I'm dumping off some of my more recent gifs and/or macros for y'all to pick through and add to your collections as you see fit. They're grouped loosely by category in an organizational fashion that probably only makes sense to me, but hey, it's better than nothing.

Horrified/Nope/Abandon thread/etc. )

Random/wacky )

Angry/bitch please/look at all the fucks I give/etc. )

Sad/crying/#feelingz )

Unf/assorted expressions of want )

Happy/laughing )

Popcorning/I regret nothing/applause/etc. )

Man candy )

If you're looking for a particular gif or desired purpose of gif, let me know and I'll see if I can dig it up. Enjoy!

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…

Expect a post squeeing about Stark and his stupid adorable face tomorrow.

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.

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'.

So Le Boyfriend is at the DMV since his license expires on his birthday (which is in two days) and I just thought I'd post this little text exchange we had so y'all have some idea of what I live with:

Le Boyfriend: At what point does boredom become murderous psychosis?
Me: Usually right around when you start visualizing how many people you could kill before someone finally took you down. Wouldn't recommend a killing spree though, DMV has state troopers and state troopers have guns
[…]
Le Boyfriend: The key to an effective and efficient murder spree is proper planning. Aim for the troopers first

….The sad thing is this is actually fairly normal as our conversations go.

Photobucket

That being said, have this pic looleebelle sent me of Stark looking all of 16 years old )

Finally, just because I'm a huge movie nerd (and a closet English nerd), have this hilarious video Le Sibling sent me: Pulp Shakespeare (YOU KNOW YOU'RE CURIOUS) )

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.

I'mma keep this one relatively brief since my life is still pretty fucking boring at the moment.

1) T.V. shows I've caught up on:

- Sons of Anarchy - Much as I miss the long hair (which made him look like Le Boyfriend), I would still hit Jax/Charlie Hunnam like the fist of an angry god. Also? Clay needs to get hit by a bus or two...or twelve (I can't be the only one who's noticed that Ron Perlman is amazing at playing complete utter assholes). Plus I still so want to be Gemma when I grow up.

T.V. shows I've tried out (and promptly gotten hooked on):

- American Horror Story - I kind of love Connie Britton in this but, then again, I've known she was a badass ever since I watched her as Mrs. Coach in Friday Night Lights. Also, Idgaf if he's batshit and clingy and whiny, I kind of want to do horrible raunchy things to Tate (me and the rest of the fandom, from what little of it I've glimpsed so far). I love the show so much that I'm almost willing to forgive Ryan Murphy for all the horrible inconsistencies and shit he's perpetrated on Glee to date. Almost.

- Hart of Dixie - First of all, I kind of fucking love this show as someone who lives in the South because it gets an amazing number of things right. And then there's Wade. OH LAWD, don't even get me started on how much I love Wade and his glorious, lickable abs.

Photobucket

Photobucket

...I need more Wade gifs in my life.

As you might have noticed, the execs seem to lust after him almost as much as I do considering how much time he spends in various states of undress. For any GK fangirls out there who haven't tried this show yet, I highly recommend it.

2) Le Boyfriend and I are due to go see The Devil Inside at some point this evening (because I'm a horrible sucker for exorcism movies). Pray for us (choice of words fully intended), exorcism movies are usually either good or hilariously godawful. Personally, I think it looks like the bastard lovechild of Quarantine and The Exorcist with a touch of The Exorcism of Emily Rose -- which, again, could be great or just fucking awful. Possible review post material y/y?

3) My muse showed signs of life recently! I managed to knock out another scene in my Starsgard hurt/comfort piece (the one I haven't worked on in almost a year, for all three people who remember it) and revised/storyboarded a couple of other scenes. Raptor Jesus willing, I might even have another part up relatively soon *fingers crossed*

And aside from a head cold combined with a horrible case of cramps, that's all I've got for now. How are y'all?

THING THE FIRST: Some brief thoughts on the most recent ep of Glee )

THING THE SECOND: Stark is alive! And I still can't get over HIS HAAAAAIIIIIRRRR AND HIS STUPID ADORABLE FAAAAACE

I seriously did almost exactly this:
Photobucket

Yes, I know I need a life.

THING THE LAST: So, new developments have occurred in my quest for an internship, but I'm not really sure how to interpret them. The short and the short of it is I managed to get in touch with the head of the physical therapy department at another university nearby and, after consulting with one of his minions (to see if they could take on another student), he sent this back to me this morning: Ye olde email(e) )

That sounds promising, right? It wouldn't make sense to introduce me to the department if they weren't seriously considering taking me on (as opposed to being all vague and dicking me around like the other places have so far). OhGodIwantthisjooooooooooooob *twitch*

THAT IS ALL. How goes life out in internet-land?

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)
