Music Monday: Biko ~ Bloc Party
Such a beautiful song. It just reminds me of Mama & Papadama. I it like woah.

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

Spring. I hate you. The allergies. The cricket mating calls that keep me up all night. JEEZ, give it a rest will ya cricket boy. The variable to non-existent wind making for the vog (volcanic fog) to set in and wreak havoc on my respiratory system. The INSECT!INVASION. BAH! Spring. You suck.

omigoshyouguys! Monsters Vs. Aliens was a movie MADE OF AWESOME!! Go see it. I LOOOOOOOOVED IT SO HARD!!! As laregan pointed out to me, EVERY movie should be made in Real-D 3-D! IT'S SO AWESOME!! Also, I want to be Susan. Seriously. *nod nod nod* *Sidenote: I think I ate too many jalepenos with my popcorn... *has ♥burn*

Dollhouse: HOLYFRAKTHATWASFREAKINGAWESOME!!! *FANGIRLS* Why haven't they addressed this issue earlier? Now?! At the end of the season? WTFRAK? Okay, so in the opening scene I looked over to The Bro and said: "Jane Espenson wrote this one."
Him: "How do you know?"
Me: "Cos of they way Topher is talking. That's the rhythm of her speech. She has a very distinct cadence."
Him: "How do you know that?"
Me: "Cos I talked to her."
Him: "WHEN?!?!"
Me: "At the Con."
Him: "Oh, yeah..."

Topher says 'frakked up' and The Bro agreed. Espenson wrote this one. CREDIT CONFIRM.

And then Wash shows up on screen and I SQUEED! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH! And then immediately went into OMG!ALPHAAAAAAAAAAAA!

The Bro: "He's not Alpha."
Me: "He TOTALLY is."
The Bro: "No. He's not."
Me: "HE TOTALLY. IS."

This argument went on thru the WHOLE ep until the very end and The Bro said the following.

"Wash just went to that creepy place. And I don't like it." *shudder*
Me: "VICTORY IS MINE!"
The Bro: "Shut up."

Briar Rose!!! EEEEEEEEEEEE! My FAVOURITE FAIRY TALE!! ...and one of my Disney faves. I loved the paralleling so much. AND the fact that engagement was all Topher's idea? I LOVE him SO. MUCH. You don't even know.

Alpha/Echo, I'm guessing, is psycho!Bonnie!Clyde!Spike!Dru!Love? Cos if that's the case BEAM ME UP SCOTTY! Totally on board.

And what's with the cheddar-tastic promo for next week? "Who. IS. Alpha?" "WHAT. does. he want?" Cheese, Grommit! But of course I'm gonna watch it cos WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASH!!!


Comment and I will give you 3 fandoms and then you have to answer these questions.
hoperomantic gave me these.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
Big fan of the movies and the comics so naturally this would follow. Plus, I wanted to see how they were gonna mold Sarah from that militaristic cold Terminator-like state she was in for the second movie into the mother balancing death and future and fate oh, my! Did I mention LENA HEADY AND SUMMER GLAU?!?!?!?

2. Do you think that you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
Like most fandoms once I'm in, it's usually for life. I'll always participate in one way or another.

3. Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
Season 1
The Pilot (Cos HOLY CRAP THEY RESET THE UNIVERSE!)
Dungeons & Dragons (I still believe it was CAMERON in that basement... but now I'm thinking perhaps John Henry?)
What He Beheld (Finales are great don'tcha think?)

Season 2
Samson & Delilah (Best. Opening. Evar.)
Allison From Palmdale (SUMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRR!)
Alpine Fields (It's great when a show introduces minor characters fully fleshed out and you kinda wanna see 'em again in the future. I wonder if Lauren and her sister end up fighting with The Connors in the new timeline.)
Desert Cantos (Loved the chapter titles and the dissection of after death.)
Some Must Watch, While Some Must Sleep (HOLY CRAP! This one mind-frakked me a bit. I had to watch it twice to figure out which happening was reality.)
Adam Raised A Cain (JOHN HENRY AND SAVANNAH!!! 'Nuff said.)
Born To Run (Cos HOLY CRAP THEY RESET THE UNIVERSE!)

4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
Heck yes! I'm also a habitual lurker so I'm not involved much with the discussions as I am in reading them.

5. Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?
HELLS YES! It's a great show, smartly written, excellent actors (BAG, who knew?), there's plot, there's character, there's character driven by plot and there's plot driven by character. It's complete yet the possibilities are endless. Especially in the void that BSG leaves it's a worthy inheritor of that type of audience. Also, save_scc save_scc save_scc

~ * ~

Buffy

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
Joss. I didn't really get into Buffy when it aired which, I'm glad to not have cos I would've been chomping at the bit like a rabies infected horse. So I'd listen when classmates talked about it. It sounded interesting but omg!highschool and I wanted to get out of there as soon as possible so I devoted all my time to that not some inconsequential teeny-bopper show. There were more important things, like Firely. Then, after I graduated, I worked at the library and you know the great thing about libraries is that they have EVERYTHING! Books, MUZIK MUZIK MUZIK!, DeeVeeDees and such. So I checked it out and omg!rabidfangirl! was born.

2. Do you think that you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
Stay. Like a good little fangirl.

3. Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
Season 1
Prophecy Girl (yeah, that's about it. Nothing in the first season was omg!stellar for me. *shrug*)

Season 2
School Hard (SPIKE AND DRU!!!)
Halloween (FREAKING FUNNY.)

Season 3
Band Candy (Giles/Joyce! You knew it was gonna happen eventually, right?)
Lover's Walk (Oh, the cuteness of omg!we're!gonna!die!love between Xander and Wil! I totally shipped them.)
The Wish (ANYA! Also, Vampire!Willow and Vampire!Xander is really sexy. So is that scar Not!Sunnydale!Buffy has.)
Bad Girls (Faith and Buffy dancing. Faith getting Buffy in trouble. Faith doing all things Faith. Oh, Faith.)
Doppelgangland (Vamp!Wil returns!)

Season 4
Wild at Heart (Breaks. My. Heart.)
Hush (Buffy should never play charades.)
This Year's Girl (FAITH!)
Who Are You (Cos it's wrong. *pout*)
Restless (Genius.)
A New Man (Chock full 'o LULZ.)
Beer Bad

Season 5
The Body (Just. Wow. On everything. The moments. The reality. The process. If you've dealt with the death of a loved one this ep is comforting and healing and a reminder.)
Fool For Love (Spike's story from Spike. Oh, Spike.)
Crush
Triangle (Who's ever idea it was to put Aly and Emma together for fourty-three minutes is a FREAKING GENIUS. I've never laughed so hard then when the two of them are together.)
The Gift
Blood Ties (Awww, sisters...)
Intervention
Family (Mostly cos of what Spike says to Tara's dumbass ignant relations and how everyone stands up as her real family. Oh, it's love!)

Season 6
Once More With Feeling
Tabula Rasa
Hell's Bells (That's because this dress is radioactive. No one does fallout like the Joss!verse.)
Grave (In the words of Andrew: "She's like Dark Pheonix...")
Smashed
Wrecked
Dead Things (That last scene? Beautiful disaster.)
Older and Far Away

Season 7
Conversations With Dead People
Beneath You (I LOVED James in this. Absolutely love love loved him. All those changes of mood, personality, voice, demeanor and body language sometimes all in the span of one sentence. Just. Love.)
Touched (Odd that Spike is a better man than William ever was. How he weaved those words of comfort and love. Oh, SPIKE!)
Help (Azura Skye)
Selfless (I love the fact that Buffy considers Anya a friend not just by extension of Xander but cos she's Anya, Buffy's friend. YAY!)

Season 8
No Future For You (FAITH!!! And GILES!! working together... also, I kinda ship them now...)
Wolves at the Gate (Dracula is always fun. Plus, we get a little filler for the gap year after Chosen. Xander dealing with Anya's death and he goes to hang out with Dracula. DRACULA of all people. That's just genius.)

4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
Mostly I glean from the offerings in the name of The Master Joss.

5. Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?
I say the more the merrier. The downfall to that is the ship!war that can tear a fandom apart but I've found little to no fuckery in that department in all of my Buffy!verse sojourning. If you have a difference of opinion or preference of ship I've noticed most Buffy!fans are made of LOVE and really don't care about that. Just the fact that you LOVE the same show and characters and dynamics are enough for acceptance. Oh, Joss you've changed the world!

~ * ~

Law & Order: SVU

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
General Law & Orderyness. It was the first spin-off so I gave it a try and LO! I loved it.

2. Do you think that you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
I've kinda moved on since the fuckery of season 7 and only occasionally tune in to watch. The first six seasons were FREAKING FABULOUS tho.

3. Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
For me this show is mostly about the team work and partner!love. I remember moments more than episodes. And anything with Munch & Fin is gold. GOLD I tell ya!

4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
I used to.

5. Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?
*shrug* If you're only going up to the point of the beginning of season 7 then go for it. The last few years tho? Not so much.

*breathes* The End.

*DOH! is a dunce today! I hope it wares off before I go to work... I can't afford to be a dunce there. I keep making mistakes (not often, but often enough to make me irritated at myself.)

Sure, I'll keep it here, its all in one place too. sweet. I'm like your free storage place!!
