dreiser: (American Horror Story: Nora)
Tuesday, December 20th, 2011 08:47 pm
Been hearing about it forever and finally watched it today (mostly by myself and the end few eps with the gf) and mannnn, I love it. I mean, it's nothing like unexpected in terms of plot but I love ghost stories and I love mild horror and I love drama and angst ridden romance and well, yeah, this has it all. Plus an evil house filled with awesome ghosts.

My favorite is Nora hands down. I squee everytime she shows up in her pretty time period outfits crying about her lost baby. Poor sad Nora. I had a weird moment of shippiness when Hayden showed up to snarkily comfort Nora and talk about dead babies together while hating on Vivian. Also, I really liked Hayden once she died. She's strangely fun as a ghost. She cracked me up when she had sex with Travis and said she just did it to see if she could fuck the living. Anywayyy, Nora/Hayden everybody! lol.

ETA: Livejournal seems to be getting shittier by the moment so I'm going to import my journal over to Dreamwidth and do crossposting from there. If anyone is on Dreamwidth and has some good femslash communities (and otherwise) to recommend let me know. I'll continue to post femslash here as well but with how things are going I should start looking into fic posting places over there. Really didn't want to do this as a creature of habit but LJ keeps making crappy changes and not taking their userbase in account at all.

Seriously. I don't care what we do or how much we pay. Albert Pujols must stay a redbird until he retires from the game of baseball. To have it otherwise would be a horrible blow to this team and the sports fans of St. Louis. Free agency makes me depressed. He has to stay with us. HAS TO. Albert! So much love. This game was epic.

It is not cute when you write children in fics as constantly replacing the letter/sound 'r' with the letter/sound 'w'. In fact, it is the opposite of cute. It is fucking annoying and slightly insulting to imply that just because a child is younger they can't pronounce things correctly. Not all children pronounce words wrong and write certain letters backwards. This constant assumption in fics that kids do this is aggravating to me and I don't even want children. It's just... you can write a child without writing them as doing these cliche verbal mispronunciations. There's plenty of ways to make it clear they're a young child besides having them mispronounce.

UGH. It grates on me. I'm reading a fic right now I love love love except everytime the kid talks it's fucking "fow" instead of "for" and argggh for the love of god have the kid fucking say things correctly. It's just as bad as writing out a southern accent overdone in dialogue. I cannot stand.

Also? Continue to suck it Rangers and fuck yeah, go Cards. I hope we end this shit by game four. That's right.

I'll be there this weekend doing many nerdy fun things involving friends, booze, and sci-fi type stuff. There's going to be a panel on b-movies and such and I'm super excited for that. Anywayyyy, if you're from the STL/IL area and are going to be there then drop me a line. I plan on having a blast at the room parties and being amused while watching live action Quidditch.

How do I love you? Let me count the ways... oh fuck it. The number is inestimable. I love your pointy finger of accusation though and the fact you're coming back as Dr. Maria Santos' psychiatric patient who thinks they've been seeing vampires and believes they're the daughter of Erica Kane. SMG <3 forever. She'll be on the show September 21st so tune in.

ETA: This whole SMG return scenario is made even more fabulous considering the fact when Kendall first told Erica she was her daughter Erica assumed she was just an insane person obsessed with her. Hee.

ETA ETA: Also love that SMG is going to be on with Eva La Rue as they're BFF's IRL.

Behold pix of her severe awesome.

BTW, for those interested. I'll be on Femslash 4 Fans yet again. This time it will be another discussion about All My Children and Bianca before the show goes off the air. It's going to be a fun time with me,[livejournal.com profile] allaine77,[livejournal.com profile] jetgirl78, and QQSuited. The show is airing September 22nd at 9 pm CST. Tune in and listen to me obsessively ramble about my all time favorite soap.

Hahaha. Sorry. You'd have to be from Missouri, Illinois, or Iowa to get that joke. I think Minnesota too? Which is odd since that's nowhere close to the other locations. Anyway. Wehrenberg is a local chain of theaters here in STL which have their headquarters in Kansas City, MO. They've always been pretty cool but recently they've gotten so much better by enforcing a policy where people must turn off or put their cell phones on vibrate while in the movie theater. If they take a text or a call they have to leave the theater. If they instead decide to play on their phones during the movie they are removed from the theater without a refund.

This fills me with so much glee. Wehrenberg has always been good at their locations that allow alcohol about kicking out disruptive behavior but this just amplifies their already great service. I hate it when people fucking play on their phones during the movie. It's not like it's cheap to buy a ticket and you're fucking around on your phone instead of of paying attention to the movie you spent your money on? Plus it totally detracts from other peoples viewing experience and it's just a dick thing to do. I'm glad to see them take a stand against this.

I guess I'll be going to see Fright Night and Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark at a Wehrenberg theater. Wehrenberg was also where Katie and I went on the massive all day Harry Potter marathon that included free lunch and various other nerd related goodies. It was a fun experience.

It's stuff like this that makes me want to brave the massive crowd of people at Comic Con in San Diego. I'm super excited about the spoilers involving the most awesome Toph too. Plus Sifu Kisu coming back to help with the bending fight sequences. Yay! Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to go to Comic Con and drag [livejournal.com profile] oneiric22 along with me. There's always something cool to see there, after all.

Run off to see Bianca! lol. I swear, I'm in a really good mood. I bought a super affordable (and tiny) dvd recorder and hooked it up to my DVR and yay, you guys, it totally works. I don't care if it makes me a sad fangirl, I'm recording the best moments of the last days of my favorite soap opera and keeping them forever. Also, this is a nifty way to keep shows I love and erase crap from my DVR at the same time.

Anyway! Today's episode was the most Bianca/Marissa we had in awhile and it was fabulous. I love how Marissa ran to find Bianca the moment she heard she might be having problems and how angstified Bianca was at the end of the episode, nearly about to confess her love to oblivious Marissa.

I swear, Marissa better figure it out fast. I have faith with Agnes on board this won't turn into the endless will they/won't they I'm a straight girl but I love Bianca I'm so confused I love you but I don't love love you stuff they did with Maggie. Plus Nu!Marissa isn't wishy washy like her original recipe version. Plus she's totally in the Bianca before everyone else mode that all Bianca love interests get into when they're falling hard for her. Which, you know, is totally understandable. This is Bianca we're talking about. Most eligible soap lesbian ever.

Also? Faux!Erica is the funniest fucking thing on the planet. I love how suspicious Greenlee gets whenever she's nice to her. lol. This storyline is bringing me endless joy.

I'll be there this weekend! Super fun, everybody. I can't wait. I haven't gone to an anime con in what seems like awhile although I know that's not the truth. Anyway, it should be awesome.

ETA: I got a message or two about my Pretty Little Liars fanfic. I don't care about the amount of reviews I get (in fact I loathe it when people hold fanfic hostage by demanding reviews or no updates so if I ever do that it's time to leave fandom and fanfic writing) but it's kind of a bummer to write for something that has no fandom. Mostly because I like to read other fics and I think reading other stories sometimes inspires you as well.

I probably will write another fic but I'm not sure. All the stories are self-contained anyway, which means they don't really need to be continued. I'm tired of leaving people disappointed with me by starting large chapter fics and never finishing them. Which is why I rather just do a single story that can stand on its own or can have a sequel. Now I should go to sleep since I need to leave for the airport at 6:30 am! lol. Ugh.

So I got my birthday present a week early from my family. A Kindle 3G which I wanted solely for the purpose of getting cheap eBooks to use for research for my various writing projects. I've had a story in the works for a few years now and recently came up with another one I really really really like a lot and involves a lot of heavy research.

I'm weirdly confident if I played my cards right and got lucky I could have a real chance of being legit published with these books and they might even turn out to be popular. They'd both be in the young adult category. That's only if I actually get off my butt and start writing them. Anyway. I downloaded forty five eBooks today just to research the new book idea I have. I spent a total of thirty six dollars which is crazy cheap. But seriously, if anyone got into my Kindle and looked at them all they'd probably give me a long side eye. lol. I mean, the category title is Myths/Fairy Tales/Folklore/Religions.

Some titles? Mysteria: History of the Secret Doctrines and Mystic Rites of Ancient Religions; Demonicial Possession, Dreams, Ghosts, Lucky & Unlucky Days, Horoscopes, Prognostications, Transformations & the Worship of Animals In Egyptian Majick; Field Guide to the Little People; Old French Fairy Tales...

You get the idea. Here's the thing, I wanted to research ancient religious rituals and practices but you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find books for that. You can find the religious stories themselves and myths but finding stuff that isn't like... super expensive about rituals and priests, priestesses, oracles, and seers is pretty hard. I also kept finding stuff on wiccans and paganism about me learning to embrace my inner goddess and no, I just want to know what sort of rituals you do. Not read a bunch about how I'm some sort of wood nymph.

Whatever though. I'm super pleased with all the spiffy research material I've gathered. Even if it makes me look like a theology student.

I am so excited by the rumor from The Sun about Madonna being offered a 1 billion dollar deal to have her own show in Las Vegas for five years. If this happens I am so going to Vegas and seeing her. This shit will top the Cher and Celine show for sure. I really super duper hopes this happens.

Also, I love how Kendall got so emotional about leaving Bianca today that she ran off before she burst into full on tears. Plus how she straight up told Zach that just being around Bianca makes her sentimental which is such aka downlow for Bianca makes me more emotional than anyone else on the fucking planet because I love her best. NuKinks is fabulous people. I love it so much. Maybe I'll write NuKinks fanfic. lol. So adorable. I love them and Christina Bennett Lind's thousand watt NuBianca smile when she looks at Kendall.

I loved this movie so much I just went to see it again with my brother. Honestly? It's fabulous. I mean, Scott is kind of a douchey character at times. In terms of how he is with women, and in particular Knives, but the movie overall is such fun and if you love video games, especially old console games from NES, SNES, Genesis era you'll find a lot to love about this film. Anyway. It's totally happy and fun and charming and go see it if you have nerd tendencies. My brother was reluctant due to it being tagged as a romance or romantic comedy for audiences but he loved it.

And that's saying a lot about how good this movie is considering how the only thing he does these days is study for the bar exam and play World of Warcraft.

Katie was obsessive and wanted to listen to John from Star Clipper Comics on Max On Movies today. Because of this, she managed to call in and get free tickets to the premiere of Scott Pilgrim this Tuesday. She loves the comic and has been super excited about the movie. So yay on obsessive gf who shares some of my nerdy habits. I get to see it early because of that and her.
