Hello Killing flisties!

There have to be at least 11 of you.

[Poll #1912406]
krickets: (Default)
→ I need to talk about things. I've been a bad flister lately I think. I feel like part of it is having two jobs now and less time. And the other part of it is just random not-posting-fun-things-for-no-reason. I apologize, please forgive me.

→ Anybody remember last year when I was doing that cute animal poll and then I totally forgot about it? Yeah, me either.

→ I just want to say hello to everyone attending Vividcon this year. I know you all will enjoy it and personally I am just excited for the new vids to start cropping up! Yay for new vids.

→ I keep thinking about how there's so much TV starting back/starting anew this fall and my brain starts to leak out of my ears. I have no idea how I'm going to watch everything I want to watch. It's not going to be easy, but by gosh I'll give it a try! One show I'm looking forward to that I've heard pretty much nobody talking about is called Whitney. It's a comedy and it's coming on NBC (don't quote me on that) -- it looks pretty clever. I'm also super excited to see The Beek playing himself in Apartment 23 at mid-season. I have no idea why this excites me so much, but I have this weird sort of love for him now. I blame twitter. (And those GIFs from last year.)

→ True Blood? What can I say, I haven't truly watched it since the second episode of the season. I have skimmed through all the rest. Basically I am aware of what's happening with Jason, Jessica, Bill (sorta), Sookie (sorta)... and everyone else I have only paused long enough to get bits and pieces. *shrug* I may or may not legitimately catch up eventually. Currently it's leaning toward not. We'll see!

→ Haven! I haven't watched last week's yet, but it's still filling that Haven-size hole in my TV scheduling. It's a simple show and I enjoy it. Duke is still my favorite. The end.

→ The Glades. Meh. I have no idea what their ratings are like but I'll be surprised if they're renewed for a third season. It's just not as fun as it was last season. I really wish they'd delve a little deeper. I want to keep loving it because I actually do have an affection for these characters, but it's kind of hard when they don't put any real effort into being something more than open and shut case of the week.

→ Entourage! (Look! I am excited!) I am a little perplexed by the fact that A) I ever watched this show in the first place, let alone from the start, B) The characters are so well-defined C) It's been on so long, D) It's ending, and E) That this season is turning out to be so darn good! I could do without certain recurring guest stars, but overall I am just enamored with this show again and I feel like by the time it's over that I won't ever want it to end.

→ Parks & Rec. Finally watched it (am still watching it). Skipped the entire first season which was nearly physically painful for me. I am such a completist and it goes against my entire tv-watching nature. But I was doing this whole "let me watch everything I can on netflix if they're going to overcharge my ass." And it sort of happened and now.. I'm just a few episodes away from the season 3 finale. And I've enjoyed myself. Imagine that.

→ LUTHER. This show has a serious problem with creepy killers who target women in the most fucked up, brutal, creepy way possible. Enough with that already. But aside from that, I'm loving this show. It's so dark and twisty and has a great cast and good writing and Idris Elba, who has more screen presence than you can shake a stick at. (Ruth Wilson too.) Good show. Watch it.

→ Hi new friends!

→ I think I'm done for now.

[Poll #1721356]

ETA: Just to clarify. [livejournal.com profile] slybrunette and I were chatting earlier and we were both wondering whether or not there was something wrong with us that we can't recall using this phrase in dialogue and that we can't imagine doing it because it seems so cheesy when we write it or think of writing it -- in our brians. Hence, poll.

So over at "The Lemon Tree" where only myself and Colin lurk anymore, we've been keeping lists of the new flicks we watch in a year. We don't count movies we're re-watching and the goal is to get to 100. In order to make it so that "bad" movies still count, I call it a win if I get through half of it. Which you'd think would make this easy. But! I'm at 86. I think there's a high probability that I'm leaving some movies off of this list. But here's what I've got written down:

84 out of 100 new flicks in twenty-ten )

Blankety, blank, blank.

So, POLL TIME? What movies do you think I should watch in the next two weeks to make it an even hundred? I do realize that you don't know every movie I've ever seen so it's possible you'll suggest something that won't count for my list. But that's okay! I'm sure you'll pick some that I haven't seen yet! And I sincerely doubt I'll have the time to watch fourteen movies before the end of the year. But I can try!

This boat is real!
Flamingos and Parrots nearly neck-and-neck?
I'm sensing some "fowl" prejudice afoot!
*resists urge to change my vote to make the race even closer*
Changed my mind!
