--> Cyber stalker alert: http://emigree.livejournal.com/52781.html. Please read for information.

--> Things I watched today:
+ Episodes 901-909 of Degrassi TNG. I'm into new territory for me. SO excited for the new season to kick off in a few weeks. My favorite characters are Jane, Fiona and Declan, so I'm glad I picked up Fi as an RP character :)
+ New True Blood. Every episode of this season (and last) has been sickening and ragey. It's a friend groupwatch activity or I might quit the show. I am bored with half of the plots this season, a few are interesting, and some are just downright horrifying (not *scary*, but... awful.) I need to write about this, I just can't stomach the thought.
+ Hounddog. I've seen the movie before, and I liked it better and worse on the second viewing. Explanation: I could appreciate it this time through as a strictly "southern gothic" venture into storytelling. That said, even knowing that everything is going to be a bit over the top, the excessive symbolism got to me. Some things work on the page, or work in experimental film, and just don't really translate in a serious way to film, at least not a film that seems to be taking itself "mainstream" for the majority of the film. Hounddog needs to find its niche earlier on and stick there, rather than dancing in and out of stereotypes and relying on banjo music. It also thinks that it is racially progressive when it falls back on the same old "magical negro" syndrome of many old southern lit--especially films. That said, it isn't a bad film. And the controversial rape scene is hardly even one, even when compared to my metaphorical issues with True Blood.
+ Childrens Hospital, the first episode. This used to be a web series and has now been picked up by Adult Swim. During July they'll be running the webisodes as full episodes, and in August "season 2" will begin. The show mocks hospital dramas, and is hilarious. The cast is first rate, borrowing from top comedies like Party Down and Parks & Recreation. I can't wait to see more, and I'm so glad I'm catching this from the beginning.

--> Also reading? Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series. I love it so far, but I will refrain from further comment until I get caught up and can do a write up.

Hi guys! I don't want the ~wrong impression~ to start circulating about me, so despite being honest and up front all over the place, I figured I would go ahead and post here.

-- Skins season 4 is shitting all over my dreams. It is pretentious and bullshit. The fact that they had to make up a whole contrived plotline just to keep things going another measly eight episodes is absolutely ridiculous.

-- After two episodes, I'm so angry/done with Emily that I can't even see straight. Mention Emily on my journal and you just might get de-friended. Not joking.

-- The only characters I care about are Naomi (half for the lulz, half cause she's still in character!), Katie, Cook, and maybe JJ-- we'll see if I can be assed once his episode comes around.

-- Writing fic, for me, does not mean I'm fucking flailing around over this show. It's a method of deconstruction. Which this show needs. I am NOT FLAILING OVER THIS SHOW. In fact, you all might have to forgive me if I unfriend those of you who are, because it's making me pissy--no offence to the OPs.

-- And, like, just for the record: I spent probably a total of 45 minutes yesterday laughing my ass off over how fucking ridiculous this show is. So yeah. I'm not exactly the number one fan of this season.

...unfriend at will.

I am SO excited for Yuletide this year. Well, to be fair, I'm excited for Yuletide every year, but I just wanted to say that I'm excited for this year, because dear Yulegoat, this year YOU are writing for me, whoever you are. The important thing is that you signed up for one of four INCREDIBLE, AWESOME fandoms and are willing to write a story for them, whether or not you pay a whit of attention to my ~very optional~ details.


Here, in random order, is what I asked for, and under the cut are additional details that I may or may not have included in the signup. I was so excited that I didn't copy/paste as usual!

2. Ian McEwan - The Cement Garden, Julie/Jack/Tom
3. Juno, Juno/Vanessa/Leah
4. The Middleman (tv), The Middleman/Wendy Watson/Lacey Thornton
