+ It's Friday! Yay! Even though the weeks go by so much faster now than they used to, it's still nice to reach the end of the week and know that I have more at home time for the next couple of days.

+ To celebrate, y'all should watch this performance by the leader of my ridiculous boy band because it is glorious. And not even slightly kpop-y, so if you don't like that kind of music (I mostly don't either, which is hilarious to me), that's okay: you can still like this. It's beautiful. I can't imagine not loving it.



Sometimes when I get in a bad mood I watch Sunggyu's performances on Immortal Song 2 (of which this is one), and then I just feel better about the world because they are all amazing in their own way. Boy is talented.

+ And for your daily dose of sex, here is the love of my life. Watch it in 1080!



+ and now for a brief ramble about my feelings about one Lee Sungyeol )

+ in which I crack myself up SO MUCH and am delighted by my own hilarity )

+ Haven't seen Vampire Diaries yet because I went out to dinner last night with the BFF who I hadn't seen in weeks. I think I might avoid tumblr till I get a chance to watch it? Possibly. I'm not really sure. But you can tell me if you liked it or not in the comments if you so wish.

+ I watched the Big Fat Quiz of the 90s the other night, and I swear the last seven minutes are the most hilarious/horrifying thing I have ever seen. I was SCREAMING and laughing and cringing and this isn't even a British cultural artifact that I'm familiar with and it DID NOT MATTER.



+ If anybody sees Argo, let me know how you like it. Looper, too. I'm tempted to go see them, especially Looper because of my Rian Johnson feelings dating back to Brick, but of course only if they're good.

+ As far as reading goes, I read The Devil in the White City and LOVED IT. It's been a while since I gobbled up a book like that and it felt good. This post sums up my experience with reading any of substance that's not fanfiction for the past year or two. I hadn't ever heard anyone else articulate it before, and it made me feel better to know that I'm not alone. I remember the days where I would read two or three books a week, constantly reading, constantly constantly constantly, and I miss that. A lot. But knowing other people sometimes get "reader's block" makes me feel better.

And if you can think of any other nonfiction books that are that easy to read, that interesting, that focused on something random from history, you should totally rec me because I want to read them.

+ My parents have been married for 29 years as of a week or two ago. This makes me ridiculously happy, because they still enjoy each other so much and have such a strong marriage. They've definitely, definitely had rough patches and they fight and hurt each other of course. But even when my friends' parents started divorcing, I never once worried that mine would. I felt really...safe with my parents' marriage, if that makes any sense. I feel like much of my love of the institution of marriage (and my narrative kink for marriage, too) stems from growing up around a good one, one where it was clear they worked very, very hard at maintaining it (not to imply that other people don't work hard and things still don't work out). And if I ever get married myself, I will have so much wisdom to build on, and that is a very great gift. I'm really proud of what they've built. It's really beautiful.

+ To be even more sappy for a brief moment (you know how I am), I just want to say how much I love y'all. [livejournal.com profile] kwritten and I have been exploding with love for fandom as community and dialogue with art, etc. lately and for good reason. My friends I've met through fandom have been such a beautiful part of my life--I value my friendship with you as much as I do any "real life" ones. The fact that I can have conversations with you about the nature of art, about how I feel about writing and about how Mr. Blobby makes me laugh/cringe is just one of my greatest pleasures in life. I sometimes feel as though I should feel that I'm lacking something since most of my current friendships that aren't with the BFF/members of my family are all online, but I don't feel that way at all. I get what I need, human-communication-and-connection-wise, from y'all. So thank you for that.

So I was reading Sady's article at Tiger Beatdown about the movie adaptation of Atlas Shrugged and of course it's hilarious. Apparently it's starring a bunch of not-very-famous people, including that guy who played the dad on One Tree Hill. Now, I've seen about four random episodes of that show and couldn't tell you one thing that happened on it, though I could tell you all the characters' names and such because of that lovely little thing we call fandom osmosis (seriously, the things I've picked up when I wasn't paying much attention in fandom are both awesome and horrifying).

Anyway!

Some sadistic soul linked to THE. MOST. INSANE. MOMENT OF TELEVISION THAT I HAVE EVER. SEEN.

A bit of context: apparently dad-guy here is in the waiting room before getting a heart transplant. Now, watch:



WHAT. WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN.

Three things:

1. Why has no one on my flist ever linked to this before? Surely one of you knew that something this INSANELY RIDICULOUS existed in the world! You've been holding out on me!

2. Please, please, please someone tell me that this is some sort of surreal dream sequence. PLEASE. WHY IS THE DOG IN THE WAITING ROOM? WHY DOES THE GUY CARRYING THE ORGAN NOT LOOK WHERE HE'S GOING? WHY DOES NO ONE FREAK THE HELL OUT THAT THIS JUST HAPPENED? WHY DOES EVERYONE JUST LOOK RESIGNED AND A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED? WHAT WHAT WHAT.

3. My theory is that CMM's character is some kind of evil villain with superpowers that conspired to make all this happen. Because that look he gives dad-guy there at the end? It's all, "Yeah, I made that guy trip and spill your heart and then I made your dog eat it. It's revenge for that time you abandoned me and my mom and were a giant douche." Okay, apparently I remember something about the show after all.

Seriously, someone explain this to me. Because I think my brain just exploded.

Oh, Founding Fathers. Why are you so hilarious all the time?

This reminds me of that episode of Gilmore Girls where Emily's DAR friends are arguing over which Founding Father was the hottest. HI-LARIOUS.

I'm totally going to be watching 1776 after work tomorrow....

This is the single most adorable thing in the history of the universe. Seriously.



I swear: RPF wants me. It's like there's a conspiracy. Probably orchestrated by [livejournal.com profile] ineffort. Maybe that's why she's on hiatus right now: it's all part of her Evil Plan to get me to RPF. It wasn't enough that she had to plant the idea of Daniel Brühl/Mélanie Laurent in my head or that [livejournal.com profile] finkpishnets knows all about my shipping of a certain *ahem* pair of actors on a certain *ahem* magically-inclined show. No! Now this exists in the universe!

*sigh*

It's hopeless. I'm corrupted.

- First, a rec. If you've got even the slightest, most miniscule interest in the rebooted version of Star Trek (and how could you not?), please go here immediately and read Four Consequences of the Unexpected and Unlikely Friendship Between James T. Kirk and Nyota Uhura. Wait, you didn't know that you wanted Kirk and Uhura to be BFFs? Really? YOU DO NOW. I was cackling with glee and squeeing with delight all the way through this ridiculously fun fic. Read it read it read it! Now if someone would only write me that fic where Chekhov needs advice on a girl he likes and Uhura plays big sis and Jim gives horrible advice and Spock is above such things (new!Spock is ridiculously arrogant, isn't he? He's my least favorite thing about new!Trek) I'd be blissfully happy...

- For joy in a concentration that can't possibly be legal, please go here immediately and watch this trailer that I saw last night before The Young Victoria (which was also joyful, incidentally). I thought I was going to die of cuteness overload, and the BFF was laughing at me all the way through it. Caveat: your ovaries may explode. Don't say I didn't warn you.

- And finally, y'all, this is the GREATEST MEME EVER.

ship me meme


And, once again, it's Joy Day! So y'all should add to my joy by doing it! Because I really want to know who you ship me with! So click on the pink and blue banner to tell me!

Logan Echolls? Tony Stonem? Wash? Helo? Enver Gjokaj? John Donne? George Washington? The third red shirt from the right on that random episode of Star Trek? Yourself? Whowhowhowhowho?

I will badger you till you complete this, and then I will reward you with PIE!

More joy!

Also, I forgot to include in my rambling earlier Dollhouse post that I was greatly pleased to see Maurissa in the actual episode. She's a cutie and deserves some love!

And now, goodnight. More drabbles tomorrow!

[ETA] Also, lj is being exceptionally stupid in multiple ways right now. *kicks it*

First, the most important thing you'll see today, stolen from [livejournal.com profile] anythingbutgrey:



I really hate the way he says her name. And I love that this vid of ridiculousness is really a feminist statement (no really. It is).



In other news, I have seven million things I need to do today, but I need something to distract me when I take breaks in between the seven million things. This will take little to no real creativity, but it will be fun, so let's go with this meme, okay? And remember, I have a huuuuge amount of fandoms, so you might want to check out my profile and find them.

gakked from [livejournal.com profile] that_september (but slightly modified because I'm me):

Ask me a fandom, and I will tell you:

+ OTP
+ Runner-up
+ Honorable mention(s)
+ Crack pairing(s)/ crossover pairing(s)
+ Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't


Have fun!

Somebody else rant about this one for me.  I just...can't do it right now.

Or if that didn't work, this one should...

Hint: You might wanna fast-forward through the man confessing to get to the good stuff on that last one....

I'm feeling particularly feminist today (well, I feel that way every day, but especially today), and [livejournal.com profile] ineffort reminded me of this spoof that is made of awesome.

Watch and enjoy.
