On a final note: Dreamhost moved my site to a new server this morning with hardly any notice, and while the only difference I've noticed has been that it's become much zippier, there may be issues somewhere that I'm not finding. If you see something amiss, can you let me know (this goes double for you, bellanut and typicrobots)?

Fandom Steel Cage Match is giving me ulcers, even just in the prelims. And it seems like I've become disproportionally invested in races where I don't even watch the show! (GO, CHLOE, GO! Don't let those sockpuppet journals beat you!). And so many others are so close that I'll be biting my nails until typicrobots closes the poll.

I'm also pretty heavily invested in the Sci-Fi side of things, with at least three out of my dream!dream final four coming from that bracket. But in the real world, my dream final four would probably be Aeryn, Lorelai Gilmore, Chandler and Pacey duking it out. Or Buffy, Bones, Jon Stewart and Pacey. (Because no one beats Pacey in the Teen bracket, I've decided. Right now. Talk to me in an hour and I might be telling a different story.)

ETA: Changed my Castiel vote to Sam. Sam's never going to be the powerhouse that Dean is and at least there's a chance that he could overtake Dean, right? If everyone who voted for Castiel as the NOT!Dean choice switched?

itchy & scratchy

I've been reading (in most cases, re-reading) Buffy fic lately. There are plenty of fic tropes when it comes to Spike/Buffy fic, but I'm always surprised that two scenarios I find very interesting are in short supply. If they exist at all. Collapse )



I ordered an eReader! Turns out, the iLiad lost out after all, because it doesn't seem to be very stable, and the manufacturer seems to be on the verge of dicontinuing the device. Of the two remaining devices, the Cybook seems to be better for Mobipocket files, but hardly any improvements have been made to the firmware since its launch.

So I ended up with the Bebook, which I finally settled on because the company seems to have very active support, with frequent updates, and there's even an open source project with improved functions. Also, they're releasing a new device later this year that will do pretty much exactly what I wanted the iLiad to do, but since I want one NOW, I might as well get used to this (cheap) version first and buy a new one in about a year or so.




I'm so glad this is only a four day week, because I think The Dreaded Allergies have hit. I've been sneezing all evening, and my eyes are itching like crazy. *sigh*

Random fandom

I'm not getting comments from my journal emailed right now (at the very least they're delayed for hours), so in case you didn't see, I made some request icons. I may make more from the caps already provided, and I'm leaving the post open for now (if I decide to close requests I'll do the whole strikethrough thing. But not the way LJ did the whole strikethrough thing. Because that way madness lies.)



My Heroes s1 DVDs shipped today. I found this rather surprising, considering the fact that I still haven't gotten a shipment notification for Ugly Betty s1, which is coming out the week before. On Tuesday, to be exact.

And I didn't hear anything about FNL, which is the one I kinda need in order to catch up before season 2 starts.

But hopefully, Dexter s1 will get here tomorrow. I can't wait to rewatch it in DVD quality.



This influx of new vids has gotten the old flist talking, and even made me think about Collapse )

On notice: work, LJ, Buffy picspams

So, I'm translating Peep Show and I can't figure out what Jeremy means when he calls Mark "the ghost at the feast". I'm figuring it's some kind of idiom and from the context I'd guess it could refer to someone being bitter or unhappy with their lot in life. Maybe? Can anyone help?



Hey, you know how everyone's been complaining about the new update page? Well, I haven't, because I always post using my Semagic client. However, yesterday I was editing a post, which is something I often do on the site instead of through the client, and I was editing a private entry (a picspam I'm putting together) and the stupid update page defaulted the security setting to public! WTF?! And it does this every time, with every security setting. That is just so bad it's not even funny. Guess I'll have to go back to editing posts with the client again.



I was just thinking the other day how weird it was that I've never picspammed Buffy when I picspam VM almost weekly. And also, how weird it is that hardly anyone ever picspams the show. I mean, it's really pretty! And there are screencaps available all over the place!

Anyway, I was considering picspamming, but then I realized that just the mere thought exhausted me because I felt like I had to cover everything (and by "everything" I mean "everything Spike/Buffy", because I'm nothing if not 'ship loyal) and the picspam would be HUUUGE. I'm going to have to think of a theme before I attempt anything.



asta77, I got your card. Thank you! And also: hee!

This just in!

Joss himself has proclaimed it (and thus it must be so): Despite what we've all believed lo these many months Veronica Mars isn't Buffy (bemoans loss of Duncan=Angel theory), it's Harry Potter! So therefore I must ask my flist to hook me up with a link to the character by character comparison with the Potterverse. C'mon, it's been a day! Someone must have written a comprehensive list by now! /sarcasm

On the other hand, YAY! for word getting out about VM.



Now for some new TV. Collapse )

A kiss is still a kiss

Okay, I give up. It's a meme. themoonbar was asked her favorite on-screen kisses in the five things meme and I got to thinking and I just had to do it. So, my favorite on-screen TV kisses are revealed beneath the cut.

Uploads, rant and the requisite TV watching

Okay, I've done my part and uploaded all the Veronica Mars episodes. I'm re-uploading episode 1 because that's what most newbies will be looking for, and the SVCD of episode 12. After that I'm done. The point of the community is not really for one person to do all the uploading so if you download an episode and have the capacity to "pay it forward" by uploading it yourself, then please do so.

I'm really tired of certain parts of fandom right now. Parts that I'm not really a part of, so I don't know why I punish myself by clicking links I really shouldn't be clicking. Collapse )

That actually felt good to get off my chest. And I'm sure to regret it in the morning. Or as soon as I press Post.
