So, the actress who played Mezoti (the Borg little girl) on Star Trek: Voyager? Apparently played "Girl Student" in Serenity. Which, if you remember, was also the name of the role played by Demetra Raven, aka Jenny Grimaldi, aka the baseball girl from "Chosen," the Buffy series finale. What, did Whedon only hire extras for that scene if they had the appropriate geek credentials? (Except not, because the actors playing the other kids don't have anything interesting to be said about them.)

(Also, !Mezoti's IMDB page picture? Guh, although not exactly subtle. If only there were a way to AU canon enough to get aged-up Naomi/Mezoti. But Naomi's accelerated aging would be a pain in trying to get that to work, not that canon ever really remembered that detail anyway, not to mention that when the relevant subpart of canon ends, they're in opposite quadrants of the galaxy. Maybe one could abandon the pretense altogether and just write Scarlett/Marley RPF. I don't know, at a con or something. Whatever.)

(And Demetra's web site makes me wince. Just, no. Please, God, no. Jenny Grimaldi would have better sense. And also be too busy fighting vampires and/or playing baseball.)

(Now I really want to buy Scarlett's EP, because, I don't even know why. I do love one of the reviews, though: "I must say that she isn't well-known here in germany and the place where i live." Yeah, and everywhere else on the planet where people don't have encyclopedia knowledge of Star Trek: Voyager. Well, either Star Trek  or Reba. So pretty much everywhere.)

Rescuing myself from the parentheticals, this reminds me that Mesektet (aka White Room Girl) from Angel is the star of the new remake of Fame, the one that Stacey Shirk claims "is better" in her song "Ten Dollar Solo" from Commentary!: The Musical. (I learned this when both the old and new versions of Fame showed up in my Netflix suggestions.) And also apparently the Fame remake "was directed by Kevin Tancharoen, brother of [Commentary!] co-creator Maurissa Tancharoen." Who is in the new season of The Guild.

(My embarassment squick caused me to pause Guild 5x01 about two-thirds of the way through, so I haven't seen it yet. Am sad that the season probably won't have any Venom/Riley content in it, though. Can they get a spin-off? I really just want to watch Michelle Boyd and Teal Sherer play evil bisexual gamers now. Because, yeah, awesome.)

(And somehow I've landed myself back into the land of the parentheticals. Boo.)

Also I have the vague recollection that Mesektet turned into one of those ubiquitous Disney Channel starlets, and that her older sister dated Sam Winchester?

So I'm watching Twilight on DVD, and it's exactly like everyone said. But I'm watching it with the subtitles on, as is my habit, and the music cues are just hilarious. It's all "OMINOUS THEME PLAYS" and "GENTLE MUSIC PLAYS."

Not even the subtitles in this movie are subtle.

I don't own iTunes--my brother swears it won't necessarily take over my computer and turn everything I own to some propietary format, but I've heard enough horror stories not to trust it.

Zune meme )

The moral of the story is I have no idea what music is actually on my Zune or how it got there.

a. Put your music player on "random." Skip songs with not very interesting titles (such as "Concerto #4 in E minor")
b. List the titles of the first 25 songs to come up.
c. Put "in my pants" after each title.

The Donnas play in Philadelphia on Monday!

ETA: I have purchased a ticket, so I guess I'm going for realz. I've never been to this sort of concert before, so I'm kind of nervous. I sort of fail at being social; I just want the all-girl rock.

1. Guidelines for sponsored communities, in which it is established that SA will not sell your children into prostitution. I still don't understand why any corporation would want to spend money on sponsored communities people aren't going to visit, but if they want to give money to LJ I really don't have a problem with that.

I set my playlist to random, and these are 15 of the artists on my playlists. I've provided pictures; you have to identify who the artists are.

The Pictures )

While not all of these artists are representative of the music which I typically listen, I think this grouping is fairly representative of the diversity and character of my playlist.

Tagged by [ profile] spikendru.

The last seven songs on my playlist:

1. "Freak Out" -- Avril Lavigne, Under My Skin
2. "The Trading Station, Part II" -- David Newman, Serenity
3. "Doing What Comes Naturally" -- Bernadette Peters, Annie Get Your Gun
4. "Santiago's Waltz" -- Interview with the Vampire
5. "Bit of Earth (Reprise)" -- The Secret Garden
6. "I'm Under Your Spell" -- Amber Benson, Once More With Feeling
7. "Born to Add" -- Sesame Street

I'm sorting to think that my media player's pseudorandom shuffle function leans more to the pseudo than to the random, actually. Or not, actually--the clumping that's occurring could happen in a truly random situation, but shouldn't during a pseudorandom shuffle sequence. Right?

Tagging whomever. Whoever is on my flist and hasn't done this type of thing yet, I guess. Or who wants to do it again.
