It's been one year, three months, and six days since last I used my journal. "So," I thought, "I better come back with something massive and shiny to distract people from the fact that I've been so utterly AWOL." Well, I did no recaps, MST3Ks, obnoxious fangirling, or pointlessly in-depth analyses during 2009. I missed a whole year of fandom-related fandoming.

In light of that, allow me to distract you all from my long absence with a massive, shiny picspam of everything I wasn't recaping/squeeing about/pointlessly analyzing during 2009.

This is long and will hurt your dial-up.

2009 In Films )

2009 In Television )


So. I hope that distracted you all thoroughly. I'm gonna actually try to update every once in a while now.

Also I did most of the caps myself and it took forever to clean them up so if you want to use them for anything that's cool just please credit me thanks!

No, I have not been on my personal lj in a whole week ;_;

Also no, I haven't posted my thoughts on any show but Heroes ;_;

Also also no, I haven't even started my Big God Damn Prompt Book for directing lab ;_;

Yes, I am going to stop complaining now and actually do all that stuff (except the BGDPB).

Dexter, HIMYM, PD, and Bones beneath the catch-all cut )

A quick note on the rp front: Willow/Tara reunion is pretty much the most heartbreaking thread ever. Oh, and Simon Tam is having girl problems at TLV. Why? Because Elle spoke to him. I think she traumatized him. Ethan Rayne, on the other hand, thinks she's hawt. But... uh... not gonna happen, Ethan. Elle just wants someone to electrocute o__o

And TV:

DEXTER: All In The Family )

HEROES: Dying Of The Light )

This is about halfway through the volume, so I thought I might as well catalogue all the things I like about this volume so far and all the things I dislike. There seems to be a lot of debate as to whether the new direction is working or not, and this my take on it: angry genetically advanced super-powered penguins )

I miss Bones. FOX is lame. I want waffles.

Mmmmm... waffles.

Due to being insanely busy, I've gone a very long time without posting. So I'm making up for it with a Very Long Post Of Doom.

[Poll #1280866]

If you checked anything other than option C, "go to sleep," YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG >:[

A few nights ago, I did two of those things after 2AM. One was option A. I'll leave it up to the imagination what the other one was >.>;

Long story short, Ted Mosby was right when he said nothing good ever happens after 2AM. Especially fanfiction. 'Cause after 2AM is when the really crazy pairings come out to play. Oh, you thought I was into some weird pairings? You laughed at me when I mentioned Anya/Hallie and Debra/Batista?

Try Ned/Elle on for size. Oh yes. I went there. I went there, I distilled the thereness of there, and I put it here and here here. And it was weird.

I mean, honestly, these pairings came from me putting a bunch of characters through a randomizer, I didn't come up with them, but still... Weird.

In other news, I stumbled across a comm dedicated to Heroes personal canon, and there are a couple gems:

Aaaand... of course, TV. 'Twas quite good his week.

DEXTER: The Lion Sleeps Tonight )

HIMYM: Intervention )

HEROES: Angels & Monsters )

PUSHING DAISIES: Bad Habits )

I think I want to kill my roommate. Talk me down, guys. I CAN'T TAKE THE SNORING ANYMORE. It's 3:42 in the fucking morning. Much like Miss Adair, I need my beauty sleep. At least I'm not dreaming about having my face set on fire? D:

Ohhhh... Okay. Let's talk about Dexter.

Honestly, I'm not enjoying this season as much as I did 1 and 2, but this is the first season I'm watching week by week (I think I came in about halfway through S2), and that always makes a different experience (much like Doctor Who).

And it's not bad, I'm just not as invested in it so far. There's no terribly gripping drama threatening to destroy the Morgans.

Anyway.

DEXTER: Finding Freebo )


Meanwhile. I feel I should update you all on my characters, because I know you all care that much.

angry penguins )


Aaaaand now it's 4:25 in the morning. I NEED SLEEEEEEP. SLEEP-DEPRIVED CHINCHILLA IS SLEEP-DEPRIVED. This is why I [heart] the weekends. She goes home, and I get a good night's rest *headdesk* The living room floor is looking more and more appealing...


ETA: Uh-oh. TLV!Elle was just advised to read the backlogs of old journal entries, and I was checking out Monk's to see if she could go "OMG DISEASE" at him. Apparently "lightning" is #5 on his List Of Fears. Tragically, the list is private. But I still think it's funny ^^ Actually, the whole list is immensely funny, although he did leave off "heights" and "crowds," which were 2 and 3, I think. Eh. I forget. But #11 is "touching a hobo's face," and that WINS.

I love it when my shows leak. I really love it when Deb screams inappropriate things in front of her boss without realizing it (which seems to happen a lot...) I don't so much love seeing that much of Julie Benz, but if I must have nekkid!JB in order to get my Dexter fix, it's not like it's a real cross to bear.

DEXTER: Our Father )

All in all, an AWESOME opener to S3 and I can't wait til October for more!

And now, on a totally different note...

I FIGURED IT OUT!

cut for Heroes AWESOMENESS )

If any of this is actually true, I might have to hunt Tim Kring down and either hug him for making the three best characters an actual family, or slap him for crimes against nature. Sylar and Elle should not be allowed to procreate with ANYBODY, let alone each other 8/


ETA: "Angel's new love interest [on Dexter] is not Deb." Curse you, David Zayas, for crushing my theory that my random ships always happen! ;_; Oh well. There's always S4, right?

The theme of this post is certainly fictional daddy issues (and the Electra Complex or should that be ELLEctra Complex ;P). But first: my new layout! Thanks to the input of [livejournal.com profile] i_hate_possess, a nice young fellow named Charlie Prince, it's Reefer Madness. Yes, I really do listen when people give me input hint hint respond to all my polls >.>

And now some super-awesome recaps and spoiler discussion.

MONK: Mr. Monk and the Genius )
MONK: Mr. Monk Gets Lotto Fever )
MONK: Mr. Monk Takes a Punch )
MONK: Mr. Monk is Underwater )
PSYCH: Murder? ...Anyone? ...Anyone? ... Bueller? )
PSYCH: Daredevils! )
PSYCH: The Greatest Adventure in the History of Basic Cable )
PSYCH: Disco Didn't Die. It Was Murdered! )

And now for the good stuff! YES! Dexter S2 out on DVD today! I can't get it until later, but I WILL. And in honor of the glorious day, I got myself all caught up on Dexter S3 spoilers. Alas, it's not airing until the end of September. But the trailer looks AWESOME.

1st trailer: FUCKING CREEPY. Everyone should watch this, even if you don't watch Dexter. It's kind of amazing.
2nd trailer: Actual. Ya know. Plot. And stuff.

cut for those daddy issues I was talkin' about )

In other news, Julie Benz is adorable.

Finally, we come to Heroes. Ah, Heroes. I've mostly only been reading up on the fates of Sylar and Elle (because we all know I wuv me some villains), and there's some interesting buzz happenin'.

cut for the Electra complex IN SPADES )

P.S. Thanks for turning me on to Pandora, guys! I'm actually hearing music now :D
P.P.S. What's with all these allegations of people dating their onscreen relatives? Hayden Panettiere and her onscreen uncle Milo Ventimiglia, Michael C. Hall and his onscreen sister Jennifer Carpenter, and weirdest of all: David Tennant and his onscreen daughter (and real-life daughter of his onscreen former incarnation) Georgia Moffet. I don't have a problem with these relationships, if they're really real and not just tabloid hype, but so many? Is it a new fad?
