New American Idol judges.


FWIW, I'm not going to be watching anymore. Both Paula and Simon gone? And with only shitty Randy left? No thanks.

So I was walking to my next class when I saw the most epic book showcased on one of the shelves.

Cylons in America: Critical Studies in Battlestar Galactica

FOR WHAT CLASS IS THIS AND WHERE CAN I SIGN UP FOR IT??? Uuuuugh I want to take whatever class is studying Battlestar fucking Galactica.

And of course I've deleted all of my BSG icons. Sigh.

This video just reignited my love for The X-Files.

I remember being such a skeptic when my friend (applesred, in fact) told me that XF was the most amazing show ever. Well, it only took me a few episodes to get as addicted as her, and I thought that Mulder and Scully were absolutely made for each other.

For me, no other couple comes closer to MSR. Not Huddy, not A/R, not any of my other ships. It's not just that they're pretty people, or they spent six seasons in a "platonic" relationship despite the obvious UST, or even the chemistry of DD and GA. It's that...there's magic there, people. Through thick and thin, they stood by each other. (Well, almost. /looks at Mulder, the Great Ditcher of Our Time) I really can't explain why I love them so much, but their relationship really affected my early-teen self (Let's be honest, it affects me just as much now). It's real love. They were literally lovers in a dangerous time, minus the lovers part. Ugh, they make me sound like a sap.

Anyway, they'll forever be my OTP. It's gonna take something pretty special to boot them out of that spot, and frankly? I don't see it happening any time soon.

I miss this show. A big part of me wants to rewatch it, but I absolutely know I'm just going to get sucked into the fandom again. And my MSR addiction, dear Lord. It's not healthy.

I had the most epic dream. We were in this awesome ice cream store. Like the walls were literally lined up with all kinds of ice cream flavors, and you were given this bowl to fill. So you go around the room filling your bowl, right? Then at the end there's like this weighing scale, and you put your bowl in it. I remember in my dream there was this guy who has his bowl filled to the brim and it only came up to 2 dollars something. Sadly, I don't remember eating the ice cream I bought.:c

That HP meme...I'll catch up to it soon. Man, I'm lazy.

Whoops. I think I missed a day.

03. What house would you be in?

Probably Ravenclaw or Slytherin. I'd actually like to be in Gryffindor because of the homey tight-knit feel, but I predict that I'd be annoyed at most of the people in there. Ravenclaw because I actually enjoy learning stuff, but I might not end up there because I'm a lazy bum who hates studying. So I'll probably end up in Slytherin. I'll have to adapt, though. Might end up bitchier than I already am.

questions under the cutCollapse )

Day 3: Is there any of the films adaptations that have made you angry because they've ignored important parts of the book?

...All of them. I know it's impossible to fit everything in a movie, but I feel like they've put so much useless stuff that could have been discarded for the more awesome scenes. And it irks me that they made McGonagall older than she looks. But I'm not really complaining, since Maggie Smith pwns the world. Can't say the same about the actress playing Narcissa.:| I guess I have more issues with the casting than - wait, that's not true. I just feel more strongly about the casting than the parts they left out.

Today was a long, fun, eventful day. I'm too lazy to describe it in detail.

02. Your favorite book

Book 5, namely Order of the Phoenix. It is pretty popular among my RL friends, so I was shocked when I found out it isn't looked on favorably, at least in my internet circle. Reasons why I love it? Umbridge is a big one, actually. Even though she was the most annoying character I wanted to stab in the face, she brought out a lot of good stuff in the other characters. Hmm, lots of Bellatrix. I love that woman. Actually just a lot of Black family stuff in general. They are the best incestuous, fucked up family ever. McGonagall stuff is a plus, too. The only thing I didn't like was Harry being a whiny emo jackass WHO ALWAYS SHOUTED IN CAPSLOCK. YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND MEEEEEE.

questions under the cutCollapse )

I decided to do the other HP meme, too. This one is ganked from lensflares. Some questions are kind of similar with the one up there. So. If they are exactly the same, I will not answer it.:| I'll do the Day 2 question right now because it is day 2, dammit. /incoherent ramblings in the middle of the night

Day 2: Your favourite movie.

The sixth movie. The rest of the movies were just lackluster, IMO. But the sixth movie was epic. And I totally bawwed when Dumbledore died. Also Draco and his actor Tom Felton were fucking badass. One pet peeve is them making Bella even crazier than she is. I mean WTF. How is that even possible.

01. Discuss how you got into Harry Potter

I was about 8 years old (which is almost 11 years ago sob) and wandering around the bookstore with my parents. The first two books were prominently displayed at the front as "bestsellers," so I convinced my parents to buy both of them for my birthday. Considering they were paperback, it was sort of a rip-off.:| Damn my 8 year old naive self! Anyway that's how I got into HP, and as they say, the rest is history.

On House and my feelings about Huddy.Collapse )

Any of you read The Historian? I've been reading it for months now and I haven't made much progress. Maybe it's just a boring book - prose overload - or maybe my attention span has just become increasingly shorter because I've been reading too many comics. The pictures are magical! I'll try reading another book to see if my theory is correct.

I watched Toy Story 3 last night. It was so good. Everyone who hasn't seen it should watch it RIGHT NOW.

Bring tissues.

ETA: Why'd they have to get rid of Bo Peep? The look on Woody's face broke my heart.

I've been putting off watching the last few episodes of Ugly Betty, mostly because I didn't want the show to end. But since I needed to clear some space on my laptop, I just got it over with. It was a bittersweet ending for me, since my attachment to the show faded over the years, but the finale was really well done. I don't give a rat's ass over Daniel and Betty's relationship, but I'll really, really miss the character of Wilhelmina Slater. She was just perfectly acted and hilarious and evil and I love her. This is of course largely due to the brilliance of Vanessa Williams, and I got pretty bummed when I realized that I won't be seeing her on my TV anymore.

BUT. Imagine my joy when I found out that she'll be joining the cast of Desperate Housewives next season. I stopped watching it a few seasons ago, but there is no doubt that I will pick it back up again now that Vdub is going to be in it. Plus I've missed Marcia Cross, too. Hopefully the character of Bree hasn't changed too much since I've stopped watching.

...Also, I have a cold. It is very annoying.

I just watched It's Complicated and-

Auuugh Steve Martin GTFO. Seriously, Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin had waaay more chemistry. I MEAN. I was like, losing hope that they'd get together 3/4 into the movie, but there were these little hints scattered around till the very end. STOP TOYING WITH MY EMOTIONS, MOVIE.

I really need to stop getting so invested in everything ever and thus not end up sounding like a rabid fangirl whenever my OTP doesn't happen.

Now I must get off my ass and study for my Bio finals.

Happy Harry Potter Quote Day!

It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways, but Dumbledore knew - and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents - that there was all the difference in the world.

RIP, Fr. Leon. You were one of the sweetest, kindest, most loving men I have ever had the fortune to meet. You have touched countless of lives, and that definitely includes mine. You were one of a kind, and I can't imagine what we will do without your constant and loving presence in our lives.

I have no doubt that the Lord will welcome you with open arms, just as you always did with everyone who entered your life. My only regret is that I won't be there to say goodbye.

I watched Alice in Wonderland last night. I suppose it was good that my expectations were lowered by people who have watched the movie before me, because I really enjoyed it.

cut for possible spoilers and unintellectual ramblingsCollapse )

I usually read books before I watch their movie adaptations, so Alice in Wonderland is a special case. Right now I'm reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and I'm loving it so far. I'm also reading The Sandman, which is a brilliant piece of work but is a little too into itself. Two long-winded reviews possibly coming your way when I finish reading both series.

In the Justice League front, my view of Hawkgirl is ruined forever. I just found out that she was voiced by this person, who is the mom in Wizards of Waverly Place. Anyone with a preteen or younger sister will sympathize with me.

If this magical, wonderful, glorious redhead has touched your life in any way...

...Or even if she hasn't. VOTE FOR HER BECAUSE YOU LOVE ME.

(Vote for Sheldon, Lorelei, and Sue, too. But Scully matters the most to me.)
