WB Shop is having a major sale on its dvds and after years of meaning to I've finally gotten the complete series for Babylon 5 (including the tv movies) for $72 which is sixty dollars cheaper than anywhere else.

Bruce Boxleitner, how I love you so. lol. Can't wait to watch it again.

I love them sooooo much as friends. The whole Lord/Manning/Cramer/Delgado extended family is the best thing ever on OLTL and there are so many fantastic things on that soap. Today was a really good episode for Blair/Tea friendship as Blair finally (yeah, right) chooses between Todd and Tea's brother Tomas as her love interest. She goes with Tomas.

Blair tells Tea about this and Tea is sort of hesitant because she, rightly, doesn't think Blair is really over Todd. Her hesitation makes Blair scoff that of course Tea doesn't approve of her being with Tea's brother, bringing up their old antimosity and Tea's response is to extol all of Blair's best qualities with complete and utter sincerity. Ohhh, it makes me ship them so. I can't say how much I love Tea and Blair being friends. I do see femslash with them but I love their canon friendship so much that it alone pleases me. Of course, I still ship TnV like mad. I wish they'd bring back Victor from the dead in time to see Tea have their baby.

Anyway! Blair/Tea cuteness is 48 seconds into the video.

Prospect Park announced they might not go through with continuing All My Children online (which bums me out severely) but they're full steam ahead with One Life To Live. The reasoning being they don't have that many people signed on for AMC, including La Lucci, while they have a HUGE amount of important cast members signed on for OLTL.

Including Florencia Lozano aka Tea I'm The Most Bad Ass Attorney Ever Delgado!! Ahhh, fangirl squee of love and joy. I adore Tea above all other females on OLTL. Her and Blair's frenemy relationship is my OTP on that show and yay for seeing more awesome Tea/Dani mother/daughter scenes for I love them dearly.

Also? They signed on David Vickers. Yay! If only Dorian hadn't said no. AMC bums me out because above all else I'm a huge Bianca Montomery fangirl and Christina Bennett Lind's interpretation of the character was made of fabulous.

Still. I have Tea now. So much joy for Tea.

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.

We had implied sex scenes with Lena and Reese but today we actually got an on screen scene. Of course, it's daytime so it's nothing graphic and it's Bianca so of course you see less than the heterosexual love scene they aired today also (Ryan/Greenlee blerh) but dude, AMC makes such progress. With each girlfriend Bianca gets her love scenes and romances improve vastly and it makes me such a happy panda.

They really are so adorable and perfect for each other it's painful. Marissa with her cute stammering invite and holding her face in shyness and Bianca with her lesbian hands in her pockets nervous walk.

Also? So much love for Bianca finally giving Marissa a good take charge kiss and Marissa pulling Bianca closer on the bed by grabbing her ass. Not that I can really blame her. Eden Riegel's Bianca is Boobianca and Christina Bennett Lind's Bianca is Bootyanca after all. Supposedly we get more scenes of them being cute in the after sex scenes such as them dancing and wandering around in robes in the hotel room embracing and kissing. Yay, AMC, yay.

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.

I cannot wait. I'm going to see this tomorrow with my brother and Katie. I would've gone to a midnight show tonight but my brother really wanted to see it with me and he's wiped from studying for the bar exam so he couldn't do a midnight show.

Anyway! Here's a trailer of the awesomeness.

I'm unnaturally attached to Cap because my mom got me a subscription to the Captain America comic book when I was eight years old to encourage my interest in reading and I've been hooked ever since. I know he's not the coolest superhero but he's a good, decent, honest guy and he's somehow not boring (to me anyway) despite this and thus he's my favorite superhero and I think with how great Marvel movies have been lately (I loved Iron Man 2, Thor, and X-Men First Class) that a period piece WWII Captain America movie should kick ass.

Oh yeah! Want an ear worm? Here's one from X-Men First Class soundtrack Love Love by Take That. Which is what I'm sure I'll be feeling about Cap's movie tomorrow. So excited you guys. I cannot wait to see him throw his mighty shield.

Haha. So stupid. I fangirl so much over him.

ETA: You guyssssss! SyFy is showing the bad Captain America movies tomorrow! I don't care. I'm dvr'ing those suckers and recording them for posterity. Awesome.

ETA ETA: Just got back from seeing the movie with my brother and Katie. I loved it! Chris Evans does a perfect job and it followed comic book canon so well I couldn't be happier. Even his original not round shield costume was used! And Bucky! And Peggy Carter! And Red Skull! And Nick Fury! And you guys, don't leave the theater early! Cool shit happens after the credits. Now I'm even more excited for The Avengers. So much awesome. I love Marvel.

Seriously AMC! Why take away my hate? It's festered for KWAK ever since the babyswitch debacle where she hardly served one day of her 10 year sentence for switching the lab results and led first Babe then Bianca to believe Miranda was dead and that baby girl was Babe and JR's. Babe got most of the reign of fire blame for that horrible fiasco it was really Krystal's doing. I twitched when Bianca returned with Reese and she let Krystal hold Gabrielle. I almost shouted at the television, totally channeling the comatose Kendall, "Binks! WTF are you doing! This woman kept Mimo from you for nine months! She let you believe your oldest daughter was dead and now you're going to let her hold and cozy up to your newborn?! NOOOOO."

But I, like so many soap fans, am fickle and now I sorta love KWAK. I'm doing a LJ cut for soap opera fangirl rambling and SPOILERS discussion/pix/video )

HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS. Sarah Michelle Gellar is going to be on All My Children before it ends on ABC and moves to the web. Duuuuude. What the hell. Original Recipe Kendall meets her most awesome (and best done) recast? This is crazy. I can't wait.

In celebration of this awesomeness here is one of my favorite Original Recipe Kendall clips. You know, I really really really want Eden Riegel to show up with Elizabeth Hendrickson to just float around in the background with SMG now. It would be delicious. Although Eden never did act with SMG. Just the bad assery that is Alicia Minshew's Kendall.

So it turns out the web rumors are actually true. All My Children and One Life To Live have both been licensed by Prospect Park and will be continuing as online web series! This was just announced officially by ABC today so details are a bit scarce. The actors have been released from their contracts so I'm not sure who is coming along for the web series of the shows (other than La Lucci who has confirmed she will be there in all her Erica Kane glory) and where they'll be airing online.

Either way, I'm super fucking excited you guys! My soaps live on. I sort of wonder how the end game storylines will change because of this since certain characters who are returning are just a one time thing and are played by actors who didn't make the trip from NYC to LA soooo... hmm.

Anyway! In the land of Bianca/Marissa things have gotten severely awesome.

I'm in Wisconsin celebrating Fourth of July with Katie's family for a few days but being a nerd I brought my laptop and I open it up to find out about this...

All My Children why are you so fucking awesome right before you get cancelled? I will never get over you leaving me. I will be sad face for a long time. No soap will replace you in my heart. I swear it.

Some negative Nancy's online are being all, "Bianca looks like an awkward straight girl in that kiss." Which, yeah, okay, I give into that analysis but please, give her a break. I don't think I'd be completely passionate kiss after Marissa does a 180 and says she's all into her after claiming to be straight, straight, straight. So, you know, I think we'll get good kisses later, but right now I can see why Binks would hold back some and not completely go for it with that kiss.

I know I've been spamming my journal with my AMC obsession. Probably because of the impending cancellation (which I hate thinking about) but maybe it's my way of unconciously sharing the joy while I still can but... DUDE. I have to post about the latest spoilers and upcoming character returns because thank the lord, Annie is coming back! Not only is she coming back but so is Marian and Janet and they're all in the same place with Dixie and OMG if Annie helps rescue Dixie and brings her back to JR it's true love forever!

I cannot wait. With Annie and Dixie back that's all about JR and hello, open seas for Bianca/Marissa. Plus JR/Annie was such a great couple and Annie is fierce to a level that cannot be argued with.

You can watch them streaming live on the interwebs at the official Eurovision website. You'll need to download an Octoshape plug in before you can watch it though, if it's anything like previous years but that's not a big deal. It's airing at 2 pm CST on all three days.

I can't recall exactly how I first started watching anime which is rather sad but what I can recall is Sailor Moon being one of my very first anime loves. Certainly it influenced my inate love of the magical girl genre and it remains one of my favorite types of anime to watch.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and Mai Hime/Otome thrilled me with their new intepretations of this genre but honestly? As much as I love both of those shows I find myself totally swept up by Puella Magi Madoka Magica to the point where I'm strongly leaning towards the belief that this is quite possibly the best magical girl anime I've ever seen.

Dudeeeee. As much as I loved Tobey in the role (until Spiderman 3 which was horrendous) I have to say that Andrew Garfield looks the part in the new pix they released for the Spiderman reboot. Also, I'm fangirling since Gwen Stacy, who I adore, is going to be in the movie as Peter's love interest. I hated how the previous movies basically merged Gwen's personality and history with Mary Jane's. Of course, if they were going to be totally accurate Peter would be chasing after Betty Brant in high school then going for Gwen in college after he got some confidence.

Anyway! Awesome costume pix away. Peter looks so angsty. I love it. I also love how he's... I dunno, scrawny? Skinny? Peter was always a rather slim but muscular superhero and this just looks so much like him.
