I am so behind on everything and then some more on top of that. Like Shameless. Don't even know how many episodes I've missed (Read: A lot.), but I recently saw some garbage on tumblr that makes me very, very upset. But I don't have time to be upset. I don't even have time to be writing this post, but I am saying fuck everything today and my only job is to do my laundry and pack for my trip. (Not true, not true! But I will try to make it as true as it can be.)

→ I started writing fic (Haven and The Killing) like 2 weeks ago but it's tucked away in some notebook somewhere... if only I could find it!

→ Ick! I listened to and absolutely hated Lana Del Rey's cover of Chelea Hotel No. 2.(And I normally love her.) If anyone else had the unfortunate pleasure of that I encourage you to cleanse your palate by listening to this random guy on YouTube killing it:

You're welcome.

→ Does anybody know anything about bonsai? I bought a 3 year old Jade bonsai tree from a street vendor yesterday. It was completely an impulse buy and cost me 25 bucks, which I feel like was probably pretty average? I'm going to have to look online or buy a book or something to figure out the care/pruning etc., situation. Completely clueless on that front.

→ I saw a preview for this new BBC America show, Orphan Black. Thinking about watching it. I'll have to DVR the premiere as I'll be out of town and I'm not sure if the cable company at the house we're staying will have the channel. Anybody hear about it? Is it supposed to be any good?

→ Guh. Before Midnight.

→ Oh, ETA! Distraction free smartphone thing? I am totally digging it almost 2 weeks later. I did re-enabl youtube on Monday though. (I at least lasted over a week without doing it!) That was exclusively for LBD though and now that it's over I suppose I could delete it again. I've enabled Safari periodically in the last few days for looking up a couple of random things in a pinch, but I've turned it off right afterward each time. I kind of like it better this way? I am still debating on whether or not to re-enable echofon. Maybe later...? Maybe not.
krickets: (✈ c; do i know you?)
Yesterday I discovered the most amazing thing ever. Riki Lindhome (Last House on the Left, an ep of Pushing Daisies & Happy Endings and a billion other gueststar things) & Kate Micucci (Raising Hope) have a comedy/novelty folk band together called Garfunkel & Oates. Observe:



F**k You
And like and lead to like-like, and like-like can lead to loooovvve.



Why Isn't there More Fucking on this Island? (Yes, This is a song about LOST.)
I'd take Sayid and get everything I need. I don't care if he used to have a wife.

This one is actually sweet and sad:

My Apartment's Very Clean Without You
But the thing that makes me sad is the pair of socks you forgot.

And for some current events (occupy):

Save the Rich
Cause if you don't agree, you're a socialist commie.

They even have their stuff available on iTunes. I think I might have to snag some of it.
krickets: (CREEK. pj; bizarre gravitational pull.)
→ Is anybody else having issues with Firefox? I just upgraded to the newest version after holding out at 3.9 (I think it was 3.9) for the majority of the year. I haven't even had a chance to play with the new version really (I literally just updated it before making this post.) But I have been annoyed with all of the other updates I tried (and then abandoned) this year. We used to be so tight, but I feel like Firefox has had an identity crisis this year and it's almost time for us to just break up. (Our relationship is starting to resemble an abusive one.)

→ I am kind of POed at The Vampire Diaries right now. because BLANK and BLANK )

→ Watched and loved Attack the Block, for those of you playing along at home.

→ I don't know if I'm going to do cards this year. I'm feeling kind of scatterbrained lately and it's already later than I usually ask for sign ups. Some people have asked for exchanges and I'll do them, but I'm not entirely sure I'll be able to pull myself together to send a bunch of stuff out. I can barely keep up with stuff that's going on as it is. (And I still have fic to read, and holiday fic to get a head start on!) I'll probably make the decision by next week, no later.

→ Speaking of Christmas, I have started my shopping. So far I've purchased a kickass Lightsaber for a 4 year old girl who loves Darth Vader, a power rangers watch for one of my nephews, and a real legit FiOS remote control (from eBay) for a 1 year old with an irrepressible addiction to all electronics with buttons. (His parents will thank me.)

→ Finished Mindy Kaling's book this week. It was adorable and funny. I think it wasn't as good as Bossypants for me, although in some ways it was slightly better (if that makes sense). Definitely check it out if you have the slightest interest in it. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

→ Everyone who hasn't needs to watch Shameless. Just saying. I sort of secretly revised my new shameless vid: fumbling through the gray and I'm burying this "announcement" in the middle of this post because this is something that I rarely (if ever) do. I just sneakily went in and replaced the source files. (Except on Tumblr which, as usual, hates me and won't let me edit the post at all - not even the tags!) This may be a dishonest and underhanded thing to do, but I had posted it in a sleep-deprived state at 5 in the morning and I just needed it to be more perfect, you know? [Guffaw.] Anyway, for those who care and who actually read this post, there is a new version up now.

→ I recently changed my ringtone from You Can Call Me Al, back to Twisted Nerve (the whistle from Kill Bill) which I have used for, literally, years. I can't really decided if this was a good move or not. I am kind of missing the Paul Simon.

→ I have 19 movies to watch before the end of the year to meet my standard goal of "100 new movies every year." Anybody have any suggestions for what to watch to fill in those last 19 slots? There are a couple of documentaries I've been planning on watching, but other than that and new stuff coming out in theaters I'm not sure. I may just end up binging on old noirs on Netflix streaming, if all else fails. what i've watched this year so far )

the white stripes break up. life, as we know it, is over.


Dear 2011,

FUCK YOU.

No love,
Me



If I don't get to re-live this Groundhog Day over and over until I can somehow undo this, I'm going to be super bummed.

Tongue Tied, Iwan Rheon

I have too much to talk about. Two new shows I've been watching lately are Misfits and Lost Girl and I'm really loving both of them and I want to talk about them but I feel so weird talking about a show as a whole instead of episode reviews, but I will just have to try because I feel like I haven't been sharing things with you guys and that's unfair and uncool. *nods*

misfits up to 2.05 )

ETA, cause I can:

No idea who made this unfortunately.

...Lost Girl later!

I was having lunch the other day and they were playing this music that sounded so intriguing and yet familiar at the same time, but the restaurateur didn't know what was playing. So here's my best description of the music. Can anyone tell me if they know anything like this?

It was Asian of some kind, eerie, had a sort of ghost-like/creepy sound to it. There was a female lead [soprano?] and she was singing in an operatic style but not belting it out, more of a soft tone. Not sure of the language. It was slow and mellow but also kinda sweeping?

See, nobody is going to have a clue, but I guess I had to give it a shot. Any ideas?

→ So, I think I kind of have a new show. Observe:

[source.]
It's called Haven and it's on SyFy and that's Eric Balfour & Emily Rose, two of its stars. Duke and Audrey, respectively. It's pretty much... a SyFy show, but I am still digging it.

→ True Blood this season is much better than last season I think. By the end of last season I was pretty much ready to give it all up. I'm a bit disappointed in a couple of minor things book-related. like... ) And it will always be that show where at the end of it I say to myself "what the fuck just happened there?" But I suppose that's part of its charm. Also charming? ) And yeah, that's pretty much all I have to say. Still watching, and it's still as batshit crazy as ever. The end.

→ I watched the first two eps of Eureka season four even though I'd never seen a single episode before. Why? James motherfrakkin' Callis, ladies and gentlemen. I do have a soft spot for the man and I just couldn't help myself. Now I am wanting to catch up with the whole series so I can consume season four as fast as possible. The way the stories are told and production-wise it reminds me a lot of Stargate: Atlantis actually. I'm looking forward to that.

→ Huge. I watched the first two eps of this show and liked it enough to continue, but I keep missing it! I will have more to say when I've caught up. I pretty much like everyone except for that main character. Normally, not a good sign. But I'm willing to persist.

→ I may be the only other human being I know that still watches this show, but I am really liking Entourage this season. In terms of in depth storytelling, they've never exactly been the greatest. But in terms of entertainment and character continuity and random crap that makes you laugh? They are king. mini spoilers? sorry! ) What could be better?

→ Persons Unknown. Still watching. Still enjoying. It keeps throwing curveballs at me, actually and I have no idea what's going to happen next. I kind of wish they'd do more character stuff because those moments when they've gone there have been the best ones in my opinion. But whatever, they can do what they want. I'll still probably watch until the end. It's a mini-series, might as well.

→ I heard there's a new preview for Sons of Anarchy that kicks ass. Someone link me?

→ On a non-tv related note, I have some music I want to share but I'll do that later.

→ lost squee luau. currently kicking my ass. *gasps for air*

Love this song.

Jar of Hearts, Christina Perri
who do you think you are?
runnin’ ’round leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
tearing love apart
you’re gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul



Pretty!
