Spent basically the entirety of the last two days watching every Pixar movie with most of my friends. It was huge amounts of fun. I'm going to miss those guys. :(

As is common when watching Pixar movies, I kept noticing things that I hadn't the first however many times around, but the standout this time was that A Bug's Life is an extended take on the fable of the ant and the grasshopper. I really don't know why it took me this long to think of that. It's still cool though. :B I also cried at Jessie's backstory scene for the first time. It's the song. Stupid song. *bawls*

Now, a meme.

Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.

Hetalia, Ookami-san, Kuroshitsuji, Lost )

Also, RIP Satoshi Kon.

Tuesday's episode of Lost was very relevant to my interests. By which I mean Richard + beard + long hair + speaking Spanish = unf. Too bad we will probably never see that version of him again. Why do all the hot guys in Lost either die or shave. :(

Also, speaking of interests relevance, Grell. Just... Grell. And the other guys too in that picture but fffff. GRELL I WILL MARRY YOU OKAY.

In not incoherent fangirl news, Anime Boston's in a week. All I still have to do costume-wise is finish my pants, make my shirt, make a hair ribbon, figure out how to do my hair, get some shoes, get a non-moth-eaten blanket, get a white T-shirt that is smaller than an XL, and like get some flip-flops too or something. And find my camera. Other than that I am good right? :B

Oh wait I lied more incoherent fangirling
vethica: (awesome)
I suppose I should do some kind of year-end post. All the cool kids are doing it. Um, I liked 2009 a lot. It was probably one of my favorite years that happened to me. So let's hope 2010 will be even better! :D

Fandom year-end meme )

EVERYONE GOOGLE "RECURSION". RIGHT NOW. Aren't you glad you did.

Why is Daniel Faraday's last name Faraday if it isn't either of his parents' last names? Also why has he never had a British accent when both of his parents are British and he was raised there? And is Wes Weasley's name short for Wesley Weasley? Because that would be a terrible name.

BNL's "For You" is a really good song. I want to use it in a fanmix or an AMV or a playlist or something never mind that I have no idea how to do any of that aaaaaaaa.

Do people actually read this thing anymore? I'd really like to know whether or not I'm sarcastic. :|

I've had a lot of stuff to post and it was too much to post in one post so this post will only post part of it. And yes, I am trying to set a world record for the number of times saying "post" in one sentence. And the number of tags on this post.

First, a meme stolen from HG:

Make a list of 10 fandoms you are in/things you like and then have your friends list guess who you think is the most attractive/would date/sleep with/etc. Cross them off as they're guessed.

1. Bleach Szayel ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)
2. Kuroshitsuji Grell ([ profile] alex_romao)
3. Lost
4. Hetalia
5. Nolanverse Batman
6. Sandman Dream ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)
7. Phoenix Wright Jake Marshall ([ profile] alex_romao)
8. US presidents
9. Yu Yu Hakusho Kurama ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)
10. Star Wars Obi-Wan (Episode II) ([ profile] hoyvinglavin64)

And, like HG's, most of these'll be super easy. ~*~so predictable~*~

Cut for the rest. Anime Boston, Pokémon stuff. )

It looks like this may become a thing.

more Lost )

edit: Also might as well take this post to post a meme.

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.

Tryin' my hand at one of those write-as-you-watch posts.

I gotta say, Roger Workman is really starting to grow on me. He's getting to be sympathetic, and his crush on Kate is sort of really adorable.

Also, apparently this episode is called "Some Like It Hoth". Not sure why yet, but Star Wars references are always a win in my book. :D

The Losting continues if you feel like reading. )

Bottom line: best episode.
vethica: (Default)
I am probably more excited than I should be that my limited knowledge of Japanese is now at the point where I can mangle certain YouTube Poop lines. ここに 地図が あります。どこに いきたいですか?FEAR IT, YO.

Have a meme I got from a place.
Pick six of your favorite fandoms and answer the questions (don't look at the questions before you choose the fandoms). For "favorite" read "current".

1. Bleach
2. Hetalia
3. The World Ends With You
4. Sandman
5. Lost
6. Kuroshitsuji

I bet you're really curious to see what happens. (Warning: contains fangirling.) )
vethica: (Default)
You know, I've never really held my childhood sacred. So when people do things like Rule 34 Pokémon or whatever, that doesn't bother me. But finding out that Abraham Lincoln thought blacks were inferior to whites? That's really depressing. D:

Also, I know I'm really late to the party with this like with everything else, but new fandom: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Go, watch. It's short - only three acts - and really awesome. Great music, great acting, heck, it's Joss Whedon. You really don't need any other reason to see it.

And now I'll do a meme.

(Stolen from [ profile] athousandwinds, who I found... man, I don't even remember.)

List 12 characters from different fandoms first. (No cheating!) Then answer the questions under the cut.

1. Szayel Aporro Granz (Bleach)
2. The Joker (The Dark Knight)
3. Darth Maul (Star Wars)
4. Mello (Death Note)
5. Rock Lee (Naruto)
6. Lloyd Asplund (Code Geass)
7. Rick Murray (Degrassi)
8. Kirby (Kirby)
9. Desmond Hume (Lost)
10. Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)
11. Phoenix Wright (Phoenix Wright)
12. Hal "Otacon" Emmerich (Metal Gear Solid)

The questions under the cut )

Be warned: I've found a community ([ profile] fandom_memes) full of these things, so don't be surprised if you get spammed by them over the next while.

boring artpads )

Also, if anyone had any doubts of how much of a freak I am, I have cast the main characters of The Office to the song "Piano Man". Yyyep.
(Piano Man = Jim; old man = David Brent; John = Tim; Paul = Dawn; Davy = Gareth; waitress = Pam; businessman = Michael; manager = Dwight.)
vethica: (Default)
Having seen my first episode (although not the first episode) of the US Office the other day, these are my first thoughts on the differences between the two:
  • It seems like they made it a little more like a sitcom and a little less like a documentary. I guess that's what they had to do for the American audiences, so I'm not complaining. Cultural differences and all.
  • Michael is, I have heard, the reason to watch the US version, and I can see that. He's certainly more likable than David Brent, although whether he is funnier, I couldn't say. (Then again, a rock could probably be funnier than David Brent.)
  • Dwight is great. Dwight is quirky in a Napoleon Dynamite-esque way and a complete geek. The guy posts his theories about LOST on his blog, for Pete's sake. Dwight is the kind of guy I would want to have as a friend. Gareth, however, is the kind I would want as a boyfriend. (I don't know how much of this is due to their physical differences; I've tried being objective on this front and failed miserably.)
  • Jim is not as cute as Tim and never will be. And he tries too hard.
  • Pam is fairly cute, though. I'll give her that.

Also, Gareth and Tim are THE Rod and Nicky. Someone needs to make a video of that.

So Jordin's the next American Idol. Good for her. Bad for Blake. Oh well. I only watched half of it anyway. The rest of the time I was too busy watching LOST. )
vethica: (Default)
Since I haven't posted since last Wednesday: quick thoughts on Idol and LOST )


Dear Guidance Counselor Type Person:

So I should go out of my way to force friendships with people whom I have nothing in common with, do not care about, and am sure do not want to be friends with me, because if I don't, "I'm missing out"?

...Uh-huh. Not seeing your logic here.


On an unrelated note, O.A. and I have discovered the awesomeness that is Shakespeare slash. Hamlet/Horatio, Hamlet/Laertes, Romeo/Mercutio, Romeo/Benvolio, Romeo/Mercutio/ wrong and yet so darn right. (Also, Juliet/Tybalt. Not slash, but it is cousincest. :D) Most of the blame goes to the "Manga Shakespeare" GNs I bought this weekend. But what can I say? The guys are hot. (Glasses!Paris! *swoon)


And Sentence Game trolls should probably die or leave or something.
vethica: (Default)
I have some words to say about LOST )

This is the best wiki article ever. This comes in second.

Also, Naruto fanfic rec: Switched! I love bodyswap stories, and this one certainly delivers. It starts out wonderfully sane. By the end, it had degenerated into...well, I won't spoil it, but a bunch of completely implausible things, and here's the best part: it still remains completely sane. It's not very long, but it is very good. Read it? ^_^

Today I got the chance to call someone a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder.

My life is complete. ^w^

Also, yesterday I misheard "Padres" (as in the baseball team) as "Podrace". :P

In television: American Idol last night was severely disappointing. First no Tony Bennett, and then no more Gina. WHY. ;_; Lost, on the other hand, now has canon handcuffs.
vethica: (Default)
I was probably gonna post something, from school or something...but I forgot it. If I was.

And in Spanish class, we were doing this activity where we were supposed to draw the first thing we thought of, and I drew Desmond. Obsessed much? :P And it was cool because we were doing this story where people took turns putting whatever they drew into a story, and I was like, "Desmond entró y gritó: —¡TODOS VAN A MORIR!" Even if someone did think he was Sirius Black. (whut?)

Speaking of, anyone who has ever read or seen or both Naruto or Harry Potter or (preferably) both needs to read THIS FIC. Right NOW, mister.

And since it's been a while since the last and I'm in love with the shuffle function, here's that one song meme. )
vethica: (Default)
Okay, it's a little late, but it's still the 17th, so happy birthday Sempai! ^_^ Have fun doing adult-type stuff at Katsucon! ;)

This song reminds me of House for some reason. Can't say why. (Yes, I've started watching House. No, it wasn't (just) because of Dr. Pritty Hairs Chase. :P)

Speaking of TV shows, OMG Lost last Wednesday. I'm not good with post-episode commentary, but Spoilers cut, click if you don't care )

Because I know none of you follow me on deviantArt, I made another artPad. It's the rival ("Jim", I call him) from Pokémon Diamond/Pearl. ^_^
vethica: (jack)
Since I was a really lazy non-posting person this past month, there were two birthdays I didn't acknowledge. My apologies to John Noble (who turned 58 on the 20th) and Billy Boyd (who turned 38 on the 28th).

What did I say I was going to talk about? Pirates and pie...Well, um, Pirates kinda starts with the word pie, so...actually, I've been putting off making a proper post for so long that I've completely forgotten everything I was going to say. Sorry. School's starting soon. Bleah. Oh - Freeglader, if you're reading this, I read Dune. I guess your fanfic did something after all.

My computer's in the shop right now, so if you were trying to email me, you can't. This is being posted from the library computer, but I don't like checking my email on public computers. So.

A website to check out: Guess the Character (shown to me by Tyma). Like a more-than-20-questions game of 20 questions, this game guesses right a lot. And if it doesn't, you can input your character into the game so it will guess it next time!

Interesting stuff I've friended:

[ profile] bri_chan - Check out her deviantART page. She does Pirates stuff. She does LotR stuff. She does Disney stuff. She's cool.
[ profile] fanart100 - A fanart challenge comm. Artists pick subjects and then have to make 100 arts based on a prompt table. They've got fanart from pretty much everything you can think of.
[ profile] fandom_puffs - If you liked [ profile] potterpuffs, you'll love this. Puffs from all sorts of fandoms. She even takes requests. And I got this icon from there. ^_^
[ profile] gay_fanart - Just what the name says. A gay fanart comm, headed by the irreplaceable [ profile] theonemonaghan, who draws lovely Domlijah. Be warned - not everything in there is clean.
[ profile] jackwill - Again, just what the name says. A Jack/Will community. This also has some...not good stuff in it.
[ profile] lost_challenge - Remember I mentioned this one a few posts back? Well, I've caught up to where they are now.
[ profile] potc_100icons - A Pirates icon challenge comm. Though there have been no icons posted as yet, it looks interesting.
[ profile] potc_art - Pirates art of all kinds. I just typoed "kinds" as "knids". VERMICIOUS KNIDS!
[ profile] turrowton - What's the only thing hotter than Jack/Will? Jack/Will/James! Actually, that's debatable, but still. It's hot. Also has some not < PG-13 rated stuff in it.

And if you're looking for the tongue twister, it's in the subject line.
vethica: (Default)
I don't know if Haku has a girl's voice in the original Naruto, but he certainly does in the dub. Add that to the long hair, painted nails and the pants that are so flouncy they're almost a skirt, and it's a wonder anyone even considers that he's a guy. Even more so that he actually is one. Well, actually I guess he's a Haku, but you know. "Haku" being an arbitrary gender and all.

Also, Inari's voice is too old for him. Other than that, I'm cool with the dub so far.

So I read this book about Lost that I got from the library (well, as much as I could without spoilering - I'm only up to episode 12), and a caption for one picture (from the peanut butter scene) reads "Charlie, a failure with women, seeks redemption in his love for the pregnant, vulnerable Claire." Okay, never mind the fact that he's a (semi)famous rock star and so would probably have women lined up outside his door, I can't see a guy who looks like that being any sort of a failure. But I'm probably biased. And they might be put off by the whole drug addict thing. And I haven't seen too much of the show, so maybe he is a failure. I don't know. But then again, the book also calls Liam "Ian", so...

And, speaking of Lost, I found this community [ profile] lost_challenge. I'm not going to friend them yet because they're farther along in the show than I am, so I'm just putting this here to remind myself. Oh, and while I'm at it, another link for my own benefit. You can just ignore it.

EDIT: I messed up the link :P
