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.

12th-Jan-2009 06:54 pm - and lichen will take over the world
Ahh, and another thing: In front of the BSG webisodes there were always these ads for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Now, when advertisements start playing, I usually switch away to a news tab or read a page in a book, and just listen for when it's over. So I never READ the name of the movie.

Which left me with the impression that the movie was called Rise of the LICHENS. And I kept hearing some guy being like, "Will we be men, or will we be LICHEN!??!?" and I thought it sounded like the stupidest movie ever. I mean, it was about some dudes who wanted to turn into lichen and take over the world? By nefarious use of LICHEN? Didn't seem terribly efficient.

I was never so relieved/disappointed as when I finally realized that word was "lycan."

11th-Aug-2008 02:47 am - wtf. just, really.
Here is a quote from a really old interview with John Mayer that I randomly stumbled across and thought was funny:

"Everyone thinks Brad Pitt has it great because he married Angelina Jolie. I think he has it terrible, because when Angelina Jolie is giving you a blow job, what do you tip your head back and think of to help you finish? You have nothing left – just Jesus on a polar bear in the middle of the snow saying, ‘You greedy motherfucker, I’ve got nothing for you.’"


I never found John Mayer even the least bit compelling before right now, but that "Jesus on a polar bear" thing is pretty hilarious. Mayer's still fug though. He's like the ugly bastard love child of Orlando Bloom, James Franco, and Antonio Banderas. I don't even know. Last year one of my suitemates was really into him but I just find him (and his music) repulsive.

8th-Jul-2006 06:18 pm - mckay and the bon-bon homies
So you know how in magazines and newspapers, when they drop a foreign word in, it's always italicized? (Well, when it's a foreign word which hasn't been completely absorbed into the lexicon, of course.)


I was just reading a fic which used the word "bonhomie" which, yes, nice, lovely word, but it being in regular text* caused a mental hiccup.

Which lead to me reading that McKay was filled with bon-bon homies.

Which was QUITE DISTURBING, to say the least. Not that I even knew what it meant. Fortunately, a shocked second perusal of the sentence yielded the correct reading of bonhomie, which made a great deal more sense.

Of course, now I really want to know all about McKay and the bon-bon homies, whom I imagine to be scantily clad young men of the sparkly variety. Who think themselves to be thugs, even though they so obviously aren't. (Also, they probably come from planet I69-GAY, or something.)

*And I've seen it italicized in magazines before. I don't know what, but most likely The New Yorker, because that's the only one I read on a regular basis. I just look at the pictures in all the others.

28th-Jun-2006 05:59 pm - these daniel radcliffe pictures
So, since I have STILL not seen the Daniel Radcliffe + supposed!girlfriend pictures, I googled for them.

this is what google told me I should be looking for instead )

Oh, google, how I love thee.

In other news, if anyone has either the pictures or a link to the pictures, it'd be much appreciated.

I broke God's brain ...

In which Jehnt questions God about Lady Robots and their silicone breasts )

Me: you're a nutter and no mistake
God: Thanks and you are a delightful person too.

P.S. - Bogged down in RL work, am not having much time for fandom currently. Just enough to skim the flist and possibly leave one or two comments, plus make some progress on fandom committments. Blah.

5th-Mar-2006 06:01 am - on badfic and password-protected fic, among other things
We're trying something new today. Have a song: Dizzee Rascal - Fix Up Look Sharp (Ratatat remix).

[Poll #685068]

So, the other day I read the craziest fic EVER. )

Scary typos I've found in fics, or Why You Should Have a Beta. )

On password-protected fic, or why I won't ever read it. )

Does anyone have any insight as to why people lock down fic in this way?

Also, hi! Look at me, all posting and whatnot!

ETA: lookit how I prettified my journal. *swoons* stripes yay!

31st-Jan-2006 12:46 am - cute, eh?
So, I just read a fic that repeatedly had Dumbledore describing Snape as "cute."





Yeah. It wasn't even Dumbledore/Snape. It was Snape/Draco. And UTTERLY BAFFLING, basically, but once I had started I wanted to find out what happened, so I slogged through it all to the end.
