I tried looking up on facebook this guy I used to know whose name is Sam Dick. Thanks to facebook's smarmy "we KNOW which name you mean" feature, all the results I get are for people named Richard Samuel and Samuel Richards. THANKS, FACEBOOK. (I do, on the other hand, appreciate this feature when I search my friends for my brother by his nickname.)

Today I was pondering the fannish funk I've been in lately. I guess it coincides with a real life funk, which is annoying because it leaves me, idk, not having anything I want to do. And I want to be funky, not IN A FUNK. BUT ANYWAY, the point of this was that I have ONCE AGAIN lost that lotrips story with Orlando and Elijah as superheroes who AREN'T AWARE OF EACH OTHERS' HEROING and then they have sex on a car while wearing masks, and it had this EPIC SOUNDTRACK set to really, really, reeeeaaaaally angsty music that went along with it, including something like, possibly, "Electric Blue" by the Cranberries (if that is even a song) because Elijah has very blue eyes and his superpower was electricity. Which he used to sex up Orlando on a car. Look, it all makes sense in the fic, okay. Or perhaps not, because it wasn't exactly the best-written thing I've ever read. BUT THE POINT IS. I lost it again, and I feel bad going back to lotrips_finders like, "Hey, I've asked you guys this before, BUT..." And the stupid thing? I CANNOT GOOGLE SEARCH THE COMM FOR MY USERNAME FOR SOME REASON, which would obviously be the most expedient way to find it again.

So my resolution is MOAR FANNISH CONTENT. Like maybe write that essay on why Merlin/Arthur is OBVIOUSLY the new Harry/Draco.

And my other resolution is to watch less tv, because I think I have so many shows all my fannish energy is drained just keeping up.

7th-Mar-2009 09:09 am - haha, why do i watch such terrible tv?
Amazon released a "Kindle for iPhone" application and so nowwww I have Kindle books on my phone, yayyyy. Right in time for my vacation (which is a road trip to the Grand Canyon, and other places of interest along the way, and which will involve a lot of sitting around in the car needing something to do).

For some reason (curiosity?) I watched the first several episodes of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. God this show is crappy. I think the best summary I can think of is that the one-minute "previously on" things can completely and entirely accurately sum up the previous episodes without leaving anything important out. Never a very good sign. And I don't know if the characterization becomes more complex later, but right now the demonization and punishment of the sexually active unmarried females on the show is just... ick. The only truly likeable character is the guidance counselor. I'm going to watch a few more episodes, partially because I want to see if it improves and partially out of a fascination with the trashiness, but I don't have high hopes.

Also at the bookstore I got The Dark Knight and Prince Caspian on DVD, and then one of those Garth Nix books with the pretty covers. I was excited about this.

and ughhh I get pre-trip anxiety so badly. I've been so anxious about going on vacation that I have barely been able to eat or sleep for the past few days.

ugh have so much work the only tv I have watched in the past like week or so is Supernatural and Election 2008. I am dyyyyyying to know what happened on Gossip Girl and, uh, those other shows I watch but can't remember right now.

Last night I had a dream that I was Nate Archibald's secret BFF and somehow ended up hiding behind a chair while he was having sex with some trashy ho in it, and then I snuck out while they were basking in the afterglow, except then he ran after me, told me his name was Kyle Adams, and that we were destined to be together forever. And then I touched the small of his (shirtless) back, and then we built dollhouses while on a cruise ship, and put tiny live American Girl dolls in them (Addy talked a lot about being emancipated and liking Obama, while Samantha kept getting in trouble in dollhouse school because she wasn't being challenged enough), and then painted a Christmas tree gold. There was also something like facebook except holographic (CNN HOLOGRAMS!) and, like, swirly stuff that looked like a galaxy or the inside of a marble. I clearly remember it was like facebook because I friended Nate/Kyle on it and was horrified to learn he wanted to be an artist (professionally! as his job!) because it would mean I'd have to get a job good enough to support both of us (and also because he'd already applied to law school, so I thought he was going to be a lawyer). lol dreams.

I actually had a lot more dreams last night (I slept FOURTEEN HOURS) but I don't recall the others well enough to post them. sad!

eta: oh, also, on the subject of other tv shows I have not been watching lately, it turns out ER is in its FIFTEENTH season, not fourteenth, like I have erroneously been stating on episode reaction posts all season long. WHOOPS.

What is up with CNN's shitty fake holograms? Dude, CNN, we KNOW is not actually being projected into the studio with Anderson because he's just a crappy digital edit-in. WE KNOW THAT. Stop faking, gosh!

CNN is doing this crazy thing where they're cutting back and forth between Anderson Cooper and James Carville. It's like looking at a cute fuzzy kitten and then being confronted with Gollum. Please bring Wolf Blitzer back. Or Campbell Brown. Or, god, CNN, just stop putting James Carville on the screen, PLEASE.
