So it was a good thing I went to check on my Amazon order of Dark Angel.

See, I have an alternate address where a lot of my spam ends up going to. I send my Amazon orders there because Amazon is a spammy company (IMO). Anyway, my order went to that address and I went to check on it and it was canceled due to the item being out of stock with the third party seller. So I went back and found new third party people and ended up ordering the seasons separately. Plus I threw in the SPN anime (Hi, Jared, you totally sold me on it, just so you know. ;) ANIME SAM FOR THE WIN.). I got all three for $52. And if they cancel these ones A) I will probably still get at least one of the two sets, and B) there are plenty more third party sellers where those came from.

I ALMOST bought the soundtrack to Tekkon Kinkreet in light of what I was saving, but for the second time it was too rich for my blood (It is an import, and boy can you tell.).

In other news, I think it is official. I am totally on a Dark Angel bender. WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS AMAZINGNESS?! WHY HADN’T I SEEN IT BEFORE SF-CON?! God DAMMIT. Why do I not have magic psychic powers that would have let me know to INHALE this series so I could ask Jensen a bunch of questions and take up time so that little fandom bitches who complain about their hair didn’t get to waste time at the mic?

WHYYYYYYYYYYY?!!!!

So whatever, I wasn’t going to write in DA, but then there was BEN. and Rachel Berrisford. And torture and psy-ops and brainwashing and children with shaven heads, and now I am on my second bunny which is turning epic, and I have a third bunny thanks to SPN-bitesized READING MY MIND (or maybe just my Dreamwidth) and I better be done with this bender by August 7 when I see Jared, because I feel like I am cheating on my first loves right now. LOL.

But ahhhhhhh.... Ben! Syl! Zack! Tinga! Case! (LOL a boy named Case. Whatever, it is a weird dystopian future, people named Box are totally allowed.) I still hate Max and Logan.

Also, my dear [livejournal.com profile] monicawoe, who encourages all my crazy fic dreams and prompts me for psychic!Dean just when I need her to, got to ask Jared a question today because she has BALLS OF STEEL (I could never do it.) Her report is here.

Have I mentioned how much fun I am having with this bunny I am writing? And how I just want to roll around inside of it forever? And how I will be saddened when you all see it because I can never go back into how cool writing this has been? And how in general THIS IS AMAZING? Because yeah. Writing is amazing. It is why I live. Ahhhh.

I don’t even care if no one reads it. I am breathing life into it, and that’s what’s important. :) It can belong to you guys later.

Heeeeeeeeeee. My little bro and I are now making our way through the Jensen eps of DA. His exact words re: Pollo Loco were: Yeah, Dean made that episode. LOL. JENSEN CANNOT ESCAPE IT, HE IS DEAN FOREVER AND EVER.

I hope we get to The Berrisford Agenda. He has tomorrow off and we would only have to watch 9 episodes (yeah, that’ll happen.) Anyway, if we don’t get to it I will find some way to leave him the .avi file.

I got a really cool birthday present from my parentals recently going to Italy (all three of my parentals willl be there this summer, actually. Mom and stepdad just got back, Dad is there for his usual yearly trip as of tomorrow. He makes really good money playing cello in the streets there.) Anyway, it is this shirt that says, How are you feeling today? and then has a whole ton of little faces with the Italian words for feelings underneath them. I LOVE it.

My other birthday present was enough cash to cover most of my con ticket, and some more cash from my parentals. I now have enough money to buy Dark Angel and even season 5 of SPN if I wanted to (I don’t really want to.)

I am no longer ahead of anyone in Smallville episodes. All I have for Transference is the following:

#1: Ew, seriously? What is it with this show and men groping all over women’s faces...

#2: Aw, I totally wanted football scholarship Clark. Maybe I need to finally crack and watch Friday Night Lights already. There is just enough football on the show now that it makes me jones for more.

Tomorrow I will move on in episodes. I CAN TOTALLY DO THIS. I LOVE JASON TEAGUE NOW. Just enough for it to suck when they cause all the crazy and take him away.

Too much going on. This weekend/week is totally turning into 100% family time. I probably should have said we would start Smallville after the holiday weekend. Everyone is gonna be super busy, and I have family stuff all week because it is the holiday and also my birthday. (It is also my little brother’s birthday soon. So I always feel like I should go home and visit him, which is what I am doing.) I will be bringing Dark Angel and Smallville with me so that I can still work on the Ben bunny a little bit. By that I mean that I will probably keep watching DA season 1 and not really writing yet. Have to decide a lot of things about wee!Ben, which will be hard because I think what I am getting in S1 is mostly wee!Max and wee!Zach. And honestly, how many more times can a girl watch Pollo Loco? (A lot of times. A LOT OF TIMES. But still.)

Blah blah blah blah... so I will get my Smallville discussion posts up at weird and random hours when I can. I will also keep you guys posted on whether I addict my little bro (a Misha boy) to Dark Angel or not. I think it has a chance of going over very well with him. Hot biker chick, yes? Also, I have a sneaking suspicion he will really like Logan. (That’s okay, I will get over it. I got over him really liking Cas too. ;) )

In light of the holiday weekend I don’t think we should try and set concurrent viewing times. But maybe afterwards? Do people want to do that, or just Kalliel? ;) I know where there is a mostly empty chat room we could use if people really wanted to converge for the Welling pain.

Today a friend of mine had her SO totally freak out because I suggested she stream SPN. Now I am an evil criminal and a bad influence and so are all my friends, fandom and non. Isn’t that charming? But he was so gracious, he allowed us to keep playing online Scrabble with us (which is what she does. Ooo so risque.)

Cause yeah, I am obviously the problem in that scenario.

(I also had to defend myself to a bunch of non-fandom people, which I did by pointing out I own or am about to own pretty much everything I have ever bothered to stream. :P Although I am not going to buy White Collar, but you may have noticed I also stopped streaming it.)

I am still kind of angry about it. I did a lot of programming on my Ben-bot, so he now does many more things, some of which are creepy as hell and make me feel better because I am a bad person.

If anyone wants his updated script I will post it here, eventually. I have to back him up anyway in case the MOO ever has problems, which it might. It is really old and also demanding of its hardware for reasons we can’t quite puzzle out.

...I swear I used to do non-fandom things. Dammit. But to my old friends I am way, way fannish and weird... :/

Like for instance I had forgotten that plot bunny is a fannish term and does not apply to writing in general and I had to explain it over and over this week. :P And honestly, I don’t even remember WHY we call them plot bunnies. In my head it is because plot bunnies multiply exponentially in a fandom crowd. Y/Y? :P

Have some words on the fledgling wee!Ben bunny and one for Sam percolating right now. Actually, either one could be for Ben, but the latter one has the potential to be SO COOL with Sam involved so I think I sold the idea to my inner Sam.

I should be asleep, but eh, this is me. Sleep is for avoidance only. ;)

So [livejournal.com profile] jagfanlj wants me to ask a con question.

My thought process goes like this:

But I don’t want to get behind the mic! I don’t want to! I told them I don’t want to do the mic thing! I NEVER want to do the mic thing. How does ANYONE do the mic thing?

Except, ooh, if I did I could ask Jensen about--
...
NO JENSEN AT BOSTON CON.
DENIED.
DEAR PERSON WHO MADE IT SO JENSEN DOESN’T DO EAST COAST CONS:
KINDLY DIE IN A FIRE.
...
But hmmm, if I got behind the mic then I could ask about Dark Angel because BEN--
...
NO JENSEN AT BOSTON CON.

*repeat* Seriously, my brain has done this at least three times tonight, it is SO FUCKING ANNOYING.

I know what did it, too.

FANDOM, THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS. ONE STUPID BITCH RUINING IT ALL.

She doesn’t even deserve the space on my screen to explain it.

So pissed off.

So, here’s what I’ve got. Since neither [livejournal.com profile] monicawoe or I will be able to ask Jensen anything at cons, I am putting this into the ether.

If ANY of you are doing cons, or know someone doing cons, or know someone who knows someone, and they aren’t on the east coast, could someone try to remember to ask whoever it is to ask Jensen to tell his audition story for Dark Angel’s Ben X5 and what he did to prepare for it?

Yes, I know this story is floating around in the ether somewhere but I want to hear it from him and I want to know what he did to prepare, if he remembers it.

*finds a Zelda fairy, attaches her Ben question to its leg like a carrier pigeon and hopes it gets somewhere*

3 hours til I have Smallville season 4. Now just to hear back from [livejournal.com profile] radiumgirl about how we want to arrange concurrent viewing. Because I am not crazy enough to watch this by myself. ;) Too much Tom Welling. Way too much.

I can’t believe I am going to watch Smallville. I haven’t since season 1.

All so I can watch Jensen go apeshit crazy and/or evil again, because HE IS SO GOOD AT IT OHMYGOD.

*looks into the sky after the Zelda fairy* *sighs* It probably won’t work. :P A girl can dream.

Otherwise known as my last post on this. ;)

No worries, by the way, I may do this for Smallville (please to expect more snark) but no way in hell would I spam you through 7 seasons of Gilmore Girls.

Okay, maybe a little spam. But definitely not episode by episode. ;)

Good morning!

In semi-related news, I done sold a copy of Gilmore Girls in its entirety to a friend of mine two days ago. He is writing an RPG with a female protagonist and antagonist and he wants to get it right so he is acquiring female-positive media and I told him he had to see That Damn Donna Reed (I think that’s the title.)

Note: I didn’t sell my copy (I never had a copy), but he swore up and down he was buying one. Something about being allergic to renting (short version), the way I am allergic to library books (literally and figuratively).

Fox doesn’t do things by halves. At all.

He is also buying Tekkon Kinkreet at the same time. I WANT HIS REVIEWS.

Moving on. Dark Angel.

Okay, so the first time I watched this my reaction could be summed up in: O.O

That doesn’t make for very interesting journaling, though. And I know those of you who are reading this are curious about my reaction to this ep, so guess what I am going to do?

I’m going to watch it again. Because I can.

I am totally exhausted. Who knew that staying UP until Sunday morning watching TV obsessively would make me tired?

When I was back in college, I could do all kinds of commentary on camera work and staging and blah blah blah, I sort of taught myself for my Science in Film class and did about 3 papers on the very same, one of which was my disability in film paper...

I suck at that kind of thing now.

You would think SPN would have taught me more, but I hosed my brain so....

What I can tell you without even turning the episode on is: holy chemistry, Batman. Maybe I am just starved for it or something but I thought Jensen had serious chemistry with the Rachel. OMG, the moment after she kisses him in the pool and he just reels back. OMG. Alec.

I can also tell you I @created an Alec after that. I have almost no idea what he will do but he needed to be cuddlable. *grin*

Okay. Great hardship is coming to me, clearly. *turns it on*

OMG so pretty. You can totally side-eye me any time. (This makes me a terrible person. HE IS SO YOUNG. *does some quick math* 21-22?)

I like how they are setting this up like 99 Problems or whatever (the song, not the episode.) Like oh man this is totally going to be an episode about douche Alec and then AND THEN AND THEN.

LOL I totally made up scary creepy lasers for my RPF guy when I was like six. I am totally keeping score here with how many cheesy fanfic ideas slip into this show.

*ahem*

Okay, honest question... How the hell did he really get the locket, and how in hell could he have possibly kept it while living at Manticore? Straining believability here, show. Stop doing that.

(LOL, if my first instinct at con wasn’t totally to fall all over myself telling them they were amazing and that I love them--which is why I will never go near a mike at con--then I would totally be like: JENSEN, EXPLAIN TO ME ABOUT THE LOCKET, and he would be like: It’s television, it isn’t real,” and I would be like, ”...” *invokes the TELL ME IT’S JUST A TV SHOW, GO AHEAD icon*)

Or, you know, something equally terrible and embarrassing. HOW do people keep their composure behind that mike, seriously?

But back to the episode.

OMG, Alec needs five thousand hugs and I am 3 minutes in.

She must FIGHT to discover...her destiny.

Have I mentioned at any point how these are quite possibly the worst opening titles I have ever seen? I really irrationally hate that voiceover and all the theme music to this show except the aformentioned DANGER DANGER music. Every five seconds it is throwing me out of the story. Also: Everyone should have a FETUS in their eye. Obviously. It’s the wave of the future!

Logan: Get over yourself. Joshua could totally take you in a cage match. You are just lucky he is super docile and gentle or he would pull an Isaac on you and make you bleed out terribly all over... Why didn’t Zach kill you? GTFO of this episode.

GLASSES.

OMG HE HAS NEVER HEARD LINUS AND LUCY (i.e. the Peanuts theme) AND HE IS COVERING HIS TRACKS OMG. *has flashbacks to A Very Supernatural Christmas and how they know no carols and AUGH*

Who hired Simon Lehane if Berrisford is just meeting him as of the first lesson? Concierge service? Who? ;)

Also also? Jensen doesn’t even play piano and he LOOKS like a piano player when he plays, this chick totally does not. She could be receiving a root canal.

(4 years of piano lessons and as far as I got was Minuet in G. Which is not very far at all. God, that was such an embarrassment. Gimp hands and eyes. Annnnnyway.)

But I won’t complain too much because THEY GOT THE CHEMISTRY RIGHT.

”Because if for some reason we lost confidence in you, we’d have no need for you.”

AUGH this is about the point at which I made electronic Alec. ;)

Okay, seriously, how did he get the locket?

Oh my god, Berrisford HIRED A FAKE RACHEL.

OMG suicidal Alec. Begging for death. Nnnggg. *hugs electronic Alec*

I cannot tell you how much I identify with this. Augh.

AND THEN HE CRIES LIKE CRAZY, not the single tear of manpain but real crying and he hides it against her body and omg ...aaaauuuuuugh.

I really wanted her to wake up right in that moment, cheesiest television move ever or not.

But he got to say goodbye. He got to say goodbye.

”Sooner or later it always catches up to you.” D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D:

(I could have done without Max and fucking Logan processing this for us, but whatever, I can deal with it.)

”I’m always all right.”

...Yeah.

...

*is a little ded now*

Dark Angel season two up through... 2.10. I may keep watching these even later into the night, but this seemed like a good stopping point for an actual post. I have been taking notes on DA all day. Watched two episodes in the morning, had a nap, inhaled calories, and went back to watching despite having slight feelings of burnout. I am now in the phase where you can’t stop watching something... My feelings on a lot of characters have changed. Except Logan. Maybe if I really dug my teeth into season 1 I would feel differently about him. I will get back to you guys on that. Not sure. Mostly I find him ugly and it colors my view of him. Also, I want to have his exoskeleton.

6 feet tall, lean, very firm, with expressive green eyes and dirty blond to brown hair. Wears a medallion of the Blue Lady. A bar code is tattooed against the nape of his neck.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have a BEN! He is a bit buggier than what I showed you, as some of his dialog is not perfect due to a few bugs I had to work around, but he is 90% coherent. ;) This is all what he will be able to do when I unbork his code.

Also? He totally lives in my pocket(ses).

Dear Jensen,

You are now electronic.

Dear Ben,

If there wasn’t Dexter now? I would totally be worrying about my sanity. But since there is Dexter, I am not alone. ♥____♥

Oh, God, it’s the arena.

I can’t get the end of this episode, so I keep watching the first 30 minutes or so and wishing it was my birthday already so I can justify buying this.

Two weeks of half-busted video files. ;)
