Kirk. Get all the babes. And the Spocks.

So, what I was saying last time about the pictures. Y'all know how I've often despaired about Danbooru's almost exclusively catering towards the male gaze? Friends, meet Bishibooru! You will never go hungry (for pictures of hot guys or hot guys making out with other hot guys) again. :B That's where I got some of the Taito pictures from last post, and also a good chunk of the stuff in my Ladd/Claire folder (which I've updated since then, so [ profile] theditz even if you checked it out last time you should check it out again. :B). I believe that said folder now contains the majority of Ladd/Claire art available on the internet, but if anyone knows of any I've missed, send them my way~!

(I love Ladd/Claire so much btw. whoops I guess somehow I acquired a new OTP)

Day 09: Favourite friendship. (WARNING: more images) )

And, uh, something less good. I was checking up on Hourou Musuko/Wandering Son on Amazon (volume 1 comes out next month, hopefully!) and noticed this charming sentence in the description of volume 2:
The “woman” who showed so much interest in Yoshino (when she was wearing a boy’s school uniform) in volume one reappears with “her” boyfriend, and becomes a mentor and friend to the two children.

...Um. I know people can get kind of fluid with the pronouns for the kids, so I'll let the "she" for Takatsuki go, but... I'm pretty sure the series has very clearly established Yuki-san's gender identity. There is absolutely no need for the scare quotes around "woman" and "her". That's kind of disgusting. Does anyone know who one would complain to about something like this? Should I just post in the product discussion forum? D:<

Okay, I know I have been outraged about a lot of stuff in here lately. But this one is seriously legitimate: the girl player character in HG/SS will not be the one from Crystal. I - what? Seriously? No. I dunno if it's just because she was the first girl or what, but the Crystal girl is my favorite out of every player character. They're not replacing the guy (although imo his new design is pretty terrible), so why replace her? Plus, I really, really dislike the new one's design as well. Look at those overalls. She looks like Mario! And what's with that hat? Fffffff I know I shouldn't get so worked up about something like this, but I'm really crushed here. I guess if I can't get used to her in the end I'll just play as the guy, new design notwithstanding. :\

Plus the Death Note photoshoot's been moved to 12 on Friday, so we won't be able to even catch the tail end. And Vaarsuvius from Order of the Stick stopped being hot. And I'm tired. So yeah, pretty bad times all around.

First: I have a new icon. Yes, for me this is a big deal. ._.;; Also, the icon is awesome.

That's actually all I was going to post here, but then I found... well, you all know "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins", right? Pretty good song, had a really great Sgt. Frog AMV that I'm very ticked was taken down. But I hadn't seen the actual music video until today. And. Um. That has to be one of the funniest, most ridiculous things I've ever seen. I don't... I don't even know. Also, I guess this is the appropriate time to wish Mr. Nimoy a happy belated birthday.

Also, an EGS rant. )

Another random unrelated stuff post, aren't those fun? :B

Don't you hate it when you're rereading fanfics you used to like years ago, and it turns out they're filled with gratuitous fangirl Japanese? Yeah, me too.

Almost directly related, in my youth I had a crush on Vegeta for a time, and afterwards I could never remember what it was I saw in him. Well, I just figured it out: Chris Sabat's voice. Seriously, compare. 1999 version (which, yes, is Chris Sabat, but imitating Brian Drummond)? Thoroughly unattractive, actually kinda freaky. 2007 version? INSTANT HOTNESS *_*. *goes off to watch more DBZ*

Also, another hot guy topic (look at me actually connecting my random stuff, whee). Serious question here: why does everyone hate Szayel so much? This cut contains SPHFWLKaiB-related whining. )

To wrap up: here, have another Phoenix Wright: The Musical song. It's been stuck in my head recently and I love Cody's singing.

People who replace Kyon with Haruki and Haruhi with Kyonko in Haruki Suzumiya screenshots:

Look, I appreciate your contributions to the genderbending cause, and I understand it must be much easier to have Kyonko dragging Haruki by his tie instead of drawing a whole new scene of him carrying her, but... you're kind of doing it wrong. When you do that, you're completely messing their personalities around. Haruhi wouldn't get exasperated by Kyon's antics ever, right? Kyon wouldn't have antics. So why would that happen when they're genderswapped? Just... remember that personality matters, people.

Disclaimer: I haven't seen the whole show. Kyon may acquire antics at some point. In which case, disregard.

Also, I've never understood the name "Haruhiko". "Ko" is for girls' names, right? So why would you put it on the end of a girl's name already if you were going to make her into a dude? Eh, maybe it's a Japanese thing.

What is this, Pick On Vethie Last-Couple-Of-Days? I've got one teacher getting mad at me for saying I was using my calculator to tell time and they thought I was being sarcastic (there actually is a clock on there), one teacher getting mad at me for asking when the homework is due ("HOMEWORK means TOMORROW!"), and then Jerkface being his usual self. (You can probably guess what that is.) Graarh.

(Also, They Might Be Giants are made of awesome and why did I not discover them earlier?)

Dear A Lot Of Writers:

Writing out accents and dialects. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it can give things a cultural flavor. (Case in point, Cross the Heartland, an excellent Kingdom Hearts/Disney AU fic.) A couple 'Eys and 'Eres here and there can be fine. But when your fic or RP starts looking like I've accidentally crawled into the Apostrophe Forest, I hit the back button posthaste.

Dear Jumanji:

It is in fact spelled "posthaste". With one e.

Dear A Certain RP:

Why would you have a bodyswap where the characters take on the speech patterns, vocabulary, etc. of whosever body they're in? That seems like it would defeat the purpose a little.

And on a related note, I'd like to plug [ profile] hogwarts_hocus, in my opinion the best multifandom RP around. If you like to roleplay, I urge you to check it out.

Recap of the past two weeks: saw At Worlds End, got out of school, developed a huge crush on Mackenzie Crook. (Not in that order.) The last one is the one you need to know about for this entry.

A rant which is very whiny but which I think is fairly justified; read at your own peril )

On the plus side of this obsession, [ profile] bsergurl and I found a movie that stars both our interests. Hers is Joseph Fiennes (Ralph's brother), and the movie is The Merchant of Venice (2004 version). We even found a picture that has both of them in it. (MACKENZIE HAS A WEASEL MUSTACHE AND HE MAKES IT LOOK HOT :D) So anyway we're gonna watch it today, although we probably won't be able to hear it for our squeeing. Yeah.

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.

"...but set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life." >:)

Dear Self,

Remember what I said about eleven o'clock PM being a bad time to go to sleep? Well, one o'clock AM is even worse. Yeah, I'm pretty mad at you right now.

Watching my New Year's resolution go down the toilet,


I've long thought your advertising was cheesy. However, now I have a new reason to dislike it: bad grammar. Since you apparently didn't pass first grade English, let me spell it out for you. That apostrophe in "Revenge of the Demon Sorcerer's Marathon"? Doesn't go there. You're making me think that a marathon belonging to a Demon Sorcerer is doing the revenging. Which is, I think, not quite what you had in mind.

Bemoaning the slow death of proper English,

And a randomly generated drabble whee )

(from here)

I'mma go play Pokémon Mystery Dungeon.
