One of the reasons I love Colgate is that I still have remote access to their server, which mostly I just use to access the OED and JSTOR and stuff lik that. But it occurred to me to try to post the Summer picspam I wanted to post in a comment on the picspam post here and it occurred to me to try via Colgate. Which worked, and am now using the same process to crosspost here.

I think tonight's Gilmore Girls was a rerun? Or maybe not. I only caught the tail end, waiting for VMars. In any case April remains the most adorable thing (erm, person? character?) ever. And Alexis is stil hot.

Is there GG fic which focuses on the interactions--in a gen way, I swear!--between Rory, Gigi, and April? Because I want that. Alongside BSG Cally/Gaius, of course. (Or Cally/anybody. Rec me good Cally fic?)

Tina Majorino: still teh awesome )

In short, I loved everything about this episode except for the plot, and I didn't hate that either.

Netflix!

My brother and I have been, since Christmas, sharng a Netflix account.

Battlestar Galactica (The Miniseries, and Season 1 Disc 1)

Very slow-paced, and alternating between bits which are extremely will-to-powery (Roslin!) and those which aren't. Mostly, I've spent most of the time lusting after Specialist Cally. I mean, seriously.

Specialist Cally picspam )

Will definitely keep watching, if only for Specialist Cally. ETA: And BSG is totally Harry Potter in space.

*

Big Love (Season 1 Disc 1)

It's like a freaky Veronica Mars AU. Not really my thing, although of course Tina Majorino is teh awesome, but there's enough to keep me interested.

*

Arrested Developement (Season 1 Discs 1+2)

A wonderful tale about a boy in love with his cousin. Wait, what do you mean there are other plotlines?

*

The DaVinci Code

Better movie than for which it seemed to be given credit. Audrey Tatou's and Ian McKellan's performances were of course excellent. Taking anything out of a Dan Brown novel seriously is a little silly, but I respect the intent. The foolishness from Holy Blood, Holy Grail--which in the novel never struck me as anything more than a convenient McGuffin--was certainly taken far too seriously. And the vibes of anti-Catholicism I never got from the book did suddenly seem to be present. Still, I mostly liked it.

Over the Hedge

William Shatner and Avril Lavigne make the most adorablest father/daughter pair ever. Maybe even more than Keith/Veronica.

Title: Sex by Proxy
Fandom: RPF
Pairings: Kristen Bell/Joss Whedon, Kristen Bell/Tina Majorino
Rating: R
Disclaimer: Everything I know about Kristen Bell I learned from "The Liberation of Katie Holmes." Everything I know about Joss Whedon I learned from "Going Hollywood." Everything I know about Tina Majorino (other than that she is teh awesome, which is just blindingly obvious) I learned from the commentary to Napoleon Dynamite. This is a work of fiction.
Summary: Tina won't be on set at the time, so Kristen is going to have to be the one to give Joss Whedon oral sex for her.
A/N: For [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle, who requested Joss/Kristen.

spoilers for tonight's VMars ) off the top of my head I don't know how to conjugate the plural of machina--help anyone? More spoilers )

Yeah. I really have to say, not as good as Torchwood. Be cool again, Veronica. Be will-to-powery. Or have you matured beyond that? Is that little piece of Kitty Pryde Lilly Kane inside you dead?

Oh well. 5 days until the next Torchwood!

Gilmore Girls

I really liked it. Plot stuff was good, nice developments, dialogue was fun, Alexis is still hot. Two thumbs up.

Although what was up with those act breaks? I mean, I know, "fade out on scary monster" isn't so much an option in this genre, but still.

Veronica Mars

Honestly, only look under the cut if you're really bored. Short story is I enjoyed it. Under the cut is random impression recorded as I watched.

spoilers, sorta )

Oh, Tina?

Tina: I don't know if they are going to actually introduce a new boyfriend for her [i.e., Mac].

Alixtii: Girlfriends are totally allowed.

Also, that dress (in the video, on the right) is really, really distracting. In a good way, I guess. (Although it isn't really an attractive dress.) Because of, yeah, you know. This dress )

ETA: It just occurred to me that I have an excuse to write dirtybadwrong cross-gen Tina Majorino/Miranda Richardson RPFS, with all kinds of fun symbolic resonances. Yay?!

. . . movieverse!Kitty Pryde is sitting in her underwear on a hospital gurney surrounded by Storm, Wolverine, and Colossus, who can't figure out how to use the mansion's super-advanced medical equipment ever since Jean died, because all of sudden she [i.e. Kitty]'s become really strong and stuff, and they think it might be a secondary mutation and Kitty's really afraid her skin is going to turn blue? And then an obscure script doctor named Joss Whedon enters with a ballerina named Summer Glau and announces that Kitty is a Vampire Slayer (Summer is one too), because Joss is a member of the Council of Watchers. But Kitty doesn't believe them, so they have to go wake up Tina Majorino and have her vamp out, because Tina is a vampire who was cursed with a soul two-hundred years ago. (All of her "daytime" scenes are done with CGI.) And Joss reports to his boss Alexis Denisof and they have sex and Kitty and/or Summer has sex with Tina who then turns evil and kills everybody, then cackles evilly. Where is this fic?

Because that is completely what RPF should be about.

Ari wondered what it meant that she guessed that most of my favorites were female. It means that she knows me well, because most of my favorites--all but four, plus the ambiguously-gendered Player--are female. Which is interesting, because many of these relate to early childhood, when my heterosexuality wouldn't have been a factor (right?). I'm not sure what it says that I've always found it easier to identify with (or at least be interested in) female characters than male ones, but I think it's pretty clearly true.

If there is one or more people on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

For those of you recognizing that the proportion of memetic content to non-memetic content (which, if we're being technical about the actual meaning of "memetics," is an oxymoron) has grown, this is because . . . er, uh . . . this is because I am conducting a super-secret experiment in memetics.

Yes, I am an experimental memeticist, and you are my guinea pigs. So, erm, stay tuned anyway?

In case you don't believe that, I promise that there will be real content eventually. I have a lot of different fics in a lot of different fandoms planned; I just never seem to have any energy or time to write any of them. Not to mention re-applying to grad schools or searching for better jobs than the summer job I have now, neither activity being one that I've really done as much or as well as I should.

So that pictorial LJ interests collage meme thing, with the tags not even pretending to be represented by the pictures with which they are paired:

My Interests Collage! )

ETA:I particularly like how it translates Mac/Madison as a Fleetwood Mac album. But that's okay; I like Fleetwood Mac (I'm pretty sure?).

And, Summer. Tina. Juliet. Michelle. Iyari. Amanda, Eliza, Jewel, Miranda, Amy, Elizabeth. (Not to mention Aly, Sarah, Cynthia, Kate, Kristen, and whoever that woman who plays Discord is.) Guh. Just guh. (As Ari would say, actors are paid to be pretty.)

ETA2: And, upon googling Kristen to make sure I spelled her name correctly (I did), I have learned that she will be starring in the animated film Flatland: The Movie. How cool is that?

Just saw Napoleon Dynamite for the first time, with my roommates.

Tina Majorino, why (and how) are you so awesome?

I still love Veronica Mars because...

The Series
  • Veronica has power--the power to make or break reputations, to uncover secrets, and in general to help others achieve their goals--and her classmates respect it.
  • When her classmates don't respect it, she makes them respect it.
  • Her father and her principal respect it.
  • The show is about rich kids who have power handed to them on a silver plate.
  • It's about the poor kids who steal it.
  • Two words: Cindy Mackenzie.
  • Because the recurring cast (which makes Buffy's look small) keeps coming back and being important. Everybody has their story, and they interrelate in amazingly intricate ways. No one is safe to forget; the show has memory.


The Finale
Cut for Spoilers )

I'll update this later if I think of more--as I am sure that I will.
