Somebody please stop me before I listen to this on loop for the 100th time over the past week:


I really actually loved every single finale, too (even the Seeker one, which I thought was overall kind of weak in terms of awesome-twisty-build-up/light-pay-off, but UGH I JUST LOVE THEM ALL SO MUCH, I DON'T EVEN CARE) but I just can't even deal. WITH ALL THESE FEEEEEELINGS.


(And now because I'm just that sort of person, I'm bringing up all of my interconnected woe with other finales and ROBIN HOOD and BUFFY and STAR TREK and and and whhhyyyyyyyyyyyyy. Basically I'm just going to be crying for the rest of my life.)

It's 3:30AM and I just woke up with a roach on my chest. After freaking out and jumping out of bed and turning the lights on and trying to determine whether it was real or part of a dream, I managed to flush the (very much real) bedroom invader out and kill it. But let's guess how much I want to get back in that bed right now. D:

Also, did last night's Chuck just intentionally reference the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie? Yes, I think it did. (Still, though, I think I might be breaking up with this show once this season is over -- and House, too. It's so gloomy... there's so much from both shows that I used to really cherish, and quite a bit that I enjoy even now, but. Ehhh. I don't know. Enough of it feels like a chore that I start to wonder why I bother. Well, that's probably more true for House than anything; I was really dragging my feet catching up with the past month of episodes, so I finally watched three of them over the weekend and... yeah... :/ And then I haven't watched the finale yet, but based on the reaction in my flist I pretty much have no desire to. I'm not 100% at that point with Chuck yet -- a lot of it is adorable and charming! But then a lot of it is me shaking my fists at the TV in impotent rage, so... I don't know! And yet I did buy a ton of $5 footlongs last season and now I feel weirdly responsible for it being on TV.)


I've made this week my unofficial Use Facebook Statuses to Reminisce About Lost Week, and. And. B'AWWWWW. Every time I go on YouTube to pull up clips I basically want to cry. This is giving the end of Harry Potter a run for its money (and remember the ten-gallon jugs of tears that were cried at the end of that, self? And the whole part where I had to make an emergency bathroom run for like twenty tissues at one point because I was literally starting to drown myself in my epic bawling as I lay in bed reading and crying? UUUGGGGHHHH WHY MUST ALL MY FICTION LEAVE ME IN RUIN AND PAIN. Hopefully at least it is satisfying and rewarding ruin, anyway).

Are any of you doing anything for the finale? I need some food ideas (other than 1) stick Dharma labels on a box; or 2) hot pockets; or 3) fried chicken; or 4) I... there was something else really obvious I had already thought of, but now I've already forgotten it.) I'm sure there are going to be some strawberries and fishcuits, but other than that IDK.

Researching more teaching abroad stuff, and this advert came up. Uhhh... what?

I may have finally reached that age where birthdays are to be dreaded rather than celebrated; but thankfully the internet is an ageless wonder, an anomaly of time and space, and a perfect venue for a "Things That Make Me Happy!" post! AND YOU CAN PLAY ALONG! (Seriously, please do.)

I'll stick with you baby for a thousand years, nothing's gonna touch you in these golden yeeeeeeeaaaaaars!! )

I'd like to keep this open until I leave on Wednesday, so please! Spam away! Picspams, gifs, fanvids, basically anything in the history of ever that you feel like linking to or flailing over... all expressions of joy and happiness are welcome.

Swiped from [ profile] sistergrimm36:

Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions.
Don't cheat!

(I HATE NARROWING DOWN FAVORITES. This is too hard. I decided to leave off Merlin and Star Trek because I included them in the last meme I did, but it still hurts. And Psych! I thought of it too late!)

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
2. Lost
3. Chuck
4. Stargate (I was just going to do Atlantis, but I've been on an SG-1 kick lately so I'll go ahead and smoosh them together)
5. Robin Hood

The questions... Also, um spoilers for all of the shows listed. )
Consistent with my usual impeccable judgment when it comes to all things fandom -- I've been up since 3:30 this morning, back in the U S of A for less than a day, and yet instead of enjoying the comforts of being able to finally sleep in my own bed I'm up in the middle of the night catching up on Robin Hood. I'm only five minutes into 3.11 and good Lord is this episode already an absolute steaming turd. ARGH ROBIN HOOD ARGH. This probably does not merit an entire post but, well, I'm too embarrassed to update my facebook status with yet more RH-related angst in the wee hours of the morning.

ETA: Actually, oh, relevant Robin Hood anecdote -- I must admit that I was rather starved for American television over the course of my travels and ended up watching basically any I could find, so one morning I caught some Magnum P.I. and the episode starts out with an establishing shot and the title "SOMEWHERE IN FRANCE TWO DAYS AGO." Ahaaaaha, okay, this probably amused me more than was warranted.

Extended thoughts on RH 3.11 The Enemy of My Enemy )

Regarding tonight's Lost... mostly filler, yeah? UGH JUST BE NEXT WEEK ALREADY! I swear they've been using the same promo clips for the last three weeks; let's get to the juicy stuff and stop being such an effing tease (oh, right, this is Lost I'm talking about :P).

That said, though, there were some things to comment on: spoilers for 5.05 This Place is Death )

Mostly, though, in the realm of TVness, I wanted to comment on Farscape! This past week I finally hit a stride in catching up with the show, and I'm a bit over halfway through the first season (I just watched "Rhapsody in Blue" and "The Flax" this morning). SWEET NIBLETS I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS SHOW AND ITS MUPPETY GOODNESS. Zhaan has reawakened my secret desire to be a badass monk; D'Argo simply oozes epic emo manpain; Rygel is actually annoying as hell omggggg, my love of all things on this show has not yet extended to his obnoxious presence, but we'll seen if that changes; JOHN AND AERYN SDLKJF;ASDFJ;LASDFJ;ASF;JASDF PLEASE TELL ME THE SUBSEQUENT SEASONS CONSIST OF NOTHING BUT THE TWO OF THEM MAKING OUT AND BEING GORGEOUS AND CONSTANTLY RIBBING EACH OTHER AND JUST IN GENERAL ROCKING MY WORLD. (Actually, in all seriousness, please do not tell me, because I'm striving to stay unspoiled as much as possible.) Anyway, it's been a while since I had new scifi to flail over (probably not since my EPIC SGA ASSIMILATION last spring), so... FLAAAAAAIL!!

Actually, I have some addition flail-of-nostalgia to do before wrapping up. I spent the weekend fiiiiinally sitting down and watching Buffy with one of my friends who loves the movie but has never seen the show (!! I KNOW! I didn't know such a creature existed). And. HOLY CRAP. HAVE I MENTIONED THAT THIS IS MY FAVOURITE SHOW EVER? 'CAUSE IT IS TOTALLY MY FAVOURITE SHOW EVER. Even recognizing that there are many things I ended up not liking about the show, that there are many cracktastically awful episodes ("I Robot, You Jane" OH GOD WHHHY) -- no television program could ever possibly mean as much to me as this show did, if only because it came at such a tremendously formative period of my life. Honestly, it is impossible to understate the impact of Buffy on my life today (and I wouldn't have it any other way)! Gosh, the Scoobies are all so wee and endearing (and yet probably still older then in high school than I am now in college, hee! Oh, TV casting, how I loves ya). Unpopular fandom opinion ahoy, but mannnn ANGEL. Hello again, love of my prepubescent life! He is so cheesy and occasionally creepy-stalker-y (ahaha, we were laughing at all of the callbacks that Twilight seems to make to this show. Seriously, just rewatch "The Pack" and try not to see the Cullens; one of them even looks like Alice!) and holy excessive wife beaters, Batman! but I love him SO DARN MUCH. Buffy/Angel angst, boy oh boy. Those were the good old days. Mostly, though -- GIIIIIIILES!!!!!!!!!!! He's the biggest reason for the rewatch, actually; Repo! was the hot new thing in our circle for about a week and I was all, yeah, ANTHONY STEWART HEAD HOW ARE YOU FANTASTIC??? -- time to bust out the Buffy DVDs and relive the awesome! Needless to say, he does not disappoint and, if anything, seems to improve upon viewing. Maybe it's just in combination with Repo and Merlin and other recent ASH-as-super-hot-dad, but I seemed extra-fixated on all of the budding protective fatherly impulses that Giles has. THEY ARE EVERYWHERE. AND THEY ARE FANTASTIC. I can already tell that I'm probably going to be a total mess once we reach "Helpless," waaaaahhhh! Anyway, we left off at "School Hard" (SPIKESPIKESPIIIIIKE) but are going to pick up again this weekend. I am so so so excited to rewatch the rest of season two, as it is my all-time favourite season of any television show in the history of ever. Lamely, though, I only have the first three seasons... the high school years are obviously my favourites, which is why they're the ones I own, but I am way hankering to rewatch, um, everything.
snowystingray: (Default)
One of my unstated resolutions this year has been to post more about movies when I actually watch them, so. Monday. I watched Repo! The Genetic Opera. And I kind of totally loved it. Anyway... I was hesitant to post about this because... well... yeah. I mean. It's the kind of movie that makes me even love Paris Hilton in it (YEAH FOR REAL I KNOW). I know I should be ashamed but I just can't bring myself to do it! I won't consider this a rec post because, seriously, I think you probably know already whether you're the sort of person who would completely love or completely hate it, and I am all over the former category and need somewhere to flail about it -- anyone? Anyone?

Mostly, though, OMGWTFASH between this and Uther I am just overwhelmed by his epic DILF-ness. I feel like that episode of Buffy where the Scoobies happen upon a weekend-Giles singing at the café and Xander is like "OH GOD IT BURNS" and all the girls are like "OH GOD DO ME." For the most part the music wasn't even hugely blow-me-away and/or infest-me-with-ear-worms awesome, but but but "Legal Assassin" is kind of my favourite thing at the moment.

(This is one of those times when I remember why I have "testament to my bad taste in everything" as a tag.)

My "Phantom"-free weekend has been really boring so far. Today I had to get up early in order to go to Bartow Ford and enter the drawing for a new Mustang. I filled out a ton of little slips of paper and it was rather boring. My dad had to go to the doctor while we were in Bartow, but I just waited in the car. We went by Wal-Mart and I got some Hot Pockets. Then I came home, did my chores, watched some BtVS ("Never Kill a Boy on the First Date" and "The Pack"), went online, talked to my sister, and now I am back online because I really have absolutely nothing to do. My life is so sad.

I did remember to watch "Battlestar Galactica" last night. It was pretty good. I like Starbuck more than I used to, but I am still violently opposed to Starbuck/Apollo. If anything, this episode made me hate that ship even more. Gaius/Six was sadly lacking, but I can let that pass. I think I might have to start shipping Starbuck/Commander Adama. Does that make me a bad person?

I wonder if anybody does "Best Week Ever" screencaps. That would be awesome. I'm going to try to find some. My life now has a purpose!
snowystingray: (nostalgic)
I want to send out big hugs to [ profile] jume to helping me work out my mood icon problems. Once I get them up, my LJ will be nice and pretty... I went ahead and uploaded new icons and changed the colours today (all things that I meant to do last week, oops).

I was going through some of my stuff last night, and ah! Three cheers for nostalgia! I have all of my yearbooks since the fifth grade, and goodness did they bring back memories... Mostly it just made me think about what pure torture the majority of middle school was (except for seventh grade). I also have all of my old letters, which are fun to read through. [ profile] katwm80 and I are such dorks. I still haven't put up the James Leary picture she sent me. I don't know where to put it! My room is very cluttered right now, and I might actually have to clean it in order to put it somewhere.

So... tired... of... school... Blah. I am one hundred percent ready to be complete with my education. Today was so amazingly boring. We did a grand total of nothing in English (well, we spent an hour grading a vocab sheet, but that hardly counts). We also took an amazingly easy test in math, which means I probably made dumb mistakes on half of the questions. We started on a new project in pottery as well, but I am completely stumped. We are supposed to be making these stand-up plaques. I am lucky because we are supposed to be using a word that is at least seven letter and my name is exactly seven letters. However, we are also supposed to be making it creative and decorative, the two things that I am the worst at. I have absolutely no clue what I want to do to my name plate. I didn't even get started on it today. The only minor success of the day was that I managed to finish most of my story. I just don't want to have to illustrate it.

...I whine too much. What is something non-crappy about my life? ::ponders:: Oh, I've started watching BtVS again while I work out. Which reminds me! I have to check and see if "Older and Far Away" is on tonight, because I absolutely love that episode ("A cramp in your... pants?" "It's a thing!") Oh, and [ profile] katwm80, I sent you a letter today, let me know when you get it.
snowystingray: (brothers)
The unbelievable amount of absolute crap going on right now is just... Bleh... ::passes out on keyboard:: I don't really want to think about it. People suck and it is just not cool.

My sister and I were out in the rec room studying for history with the TV on in the background, and for some amazingly odd reason "Clueless" was on (DON'T ask, it isn't a show I watch regularly) but the fact that it is the stupidest show ever is completely compensated for by Danny Strong cameos! Ack! I just looked up in the middle of some of my notes to mock the show and I'm like, "AHH! It's Jonathan! If glomping the television was easy I'd be doing it right now!" He's the cutest thing ever. I love him so much. Oh, and one of the chicks was wearing Buffy's pink lace shirt from "When She Was Bad". It definitely looks better on SMG, though, because it didn't look half as cute as in WSWB and it took me a while to recognize it.

Last night, I had an odd dream. I opened a department store that sold exercise equipment and tablecloths. Next door was an ice cream shop that had bands play every night, and one night they had Crambo playing. Of course, Sean just happened to rejoin the band that night. Oh, and then I discovered that the store basement wasn't really a basement, but a crypt/mausoleum thing. And Spike lived in it.

Ah, if dreams would only come true...
snowystingray: (Default)
...or is there such a thing? Last night was "School Hard", which is my absolute favorite episode of all times. Spike totally rocks my socks. At least, he does in the early seasons. That whole Buffy obsession still grosses me out >_< ::is a firm believer in Buffy/Angel, *not* Buffy/Spike::

Hey, look at this:

You're Spike. An English badass. At least you were until they put that stupid chip in your head. And then you fell in love with the slayer... Snap out of it, man!

Find your inner vampire.

That is seriously weird. Not the fact that I match up with Spike. The other day I was talking to somebody about the undead, and then I thought it would be cool to make an undead test: come up with all the famous vampires, and then have a quiz to see which one you were. Then I was reading Tanja's blog and saw a link for that. How awful is it when you have what you think is a good, original idea, and then find out that somebody has already done it?
