The latest passengers on the failboat

  • 14th Aug, 2008 at 4:58 PM
Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that it has moved back the release date of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" to Summer 2009. The sixth installment of the blockbuster Harry Potter franchise will now open day-and-date domestically and in the major international markets on July 17, 2009. The announcement was made by Alan Horn, President and Chief Operating Officer, Warner Bros.

Eight months? EIGHT? Really, WB? Is that necessary for a movie already in post-production?

WB is so full of shit. So much for their chances of redeeming themselves with this movie. And to think I was actually looking forward to it.
pissed off

SYTYCD spoilers, yay!

As y'all know, Mondays mean SYTYCD spoilers. I promised myself I'd refrain from posting these every week (too much spammage, plus I refuse to support IDF) but I couldn't resist this week, because I really want to point out some things.

Not really looking forward to Wednesday nowCollapse )

The obligatory anti-Twilight post

  • 12th May, 2008 at 4:32 PM
I finally got around to reading this garbage book (it was a .pdf version I downloaded from some torrent site... sorry, but I didn't plan on wasting my money after reading my flist's reviews). Before I get into my opinion of the first 1/4 of the book, let's have a look at a representative of the (alarmingly large) pro-Twilight population I'm about to offend. Here's a post a male Twilight fan named Daniel left on the wall of an anti-Twilight Facebook group, with my comments added in:

twilightOK well let me say something to who ever was the guy bashing twilight! Just because somewhere else some one made out that Vampires are evil is stupid that u can't accept that vampires could b good also (so basically, he's saying that the people who hate Twilight hate it because they're prejudiced against vampires). twilight fans such as myself don't think it really is possible it just we like a good book and enjoy the story (oh, please, tell that to the thousands of girls in the "Because I read Twilight I have unrealisteic expectations in Men" Facebook group). also if you think that the twilight veiw is not really possible why do you believe it is possible that vampires have the apperance of the person they killed (forgive me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like he's trying to imply here that Stephenie Meyer's vampires actually exist IRL) stepine (LOL) meyer has changed the veiw of vampires for soo many people (lol yes, those poor, misunderstood vampires... lucky Meyer's around to dispel vampire stereotypes and portray them justly!) and gotten many people to read (the mere possibility that these are the first books children these days are picking up makes me worried for their generation) soo why try to stop people reading in this educatioaly innept (...no comment of mine can do this justice) country we live in all i have to say the twilight series is awesome

With that in mind, onto my thoughts!Collapse )

Bonus rant about first personCollapse )

I feel so much better having let all of that out. *is totally going to get hate mail from her FB friends if they read this*
Top 7 results... live-ish bloggingCollapse )

Another fanfiction rant, which really doesn't pertain to LJ at all, but I need to put it somewhere :P

OOC?Collapse )

I finally got around to listening to and rating the final 20 in the AI7 songwriting competition. It took me freaking hours to get through them all, but I did it! Let me just say that I REALLY don't think they're as bad as everyone's making them out to be. Yeah, they're terribly cheesy, but most of them are tolerable. There are even two or three that I think are great. So, without further ado...

Review of the songs + downloadable zip fileCollapse )

A mini collection of rants

American Idol (spoilers ahead)Collapse )

FanfictionCollapse )

My old ficsCollapse )

Real lifeCollapse )

If you're too lazy to read through all of that, I don't blame you. Here are the things you need to know:

1) I wrote eighteen for SKOM (hee, props to anyone who figures that out), and I'm pleased with the way it turned out. Chapter 19 is ~5k right now. I think it's just about finished. I just need to add in one or two transition scenes.
2) ldws pimp: Sign-ups close on Sunday, so go sign up now if you want to participate! There are only six participants right now. It looks like it's going to be a short competition, so if you were worried about time, never fear :D
3) hd_worldcup pimp: Support Team Epilogue! Yay!

ETA: Wow, I just finished a fantastic book called "On Beauty" by Zadie Smith. It was... yeah, really good. A wonderful, thoughtful depiction of life, love, and beauty. I'm not too good at writing book reviews, so I'll leave it at that. If anyone has time, I would definitely recommend reading it.

Does this constitute LJ drama?

In response to the hd_worldcup drama: really now?

Cut for one long, pointless block of text!Collapse )

I think this is the best part about not being LJ famous: 42730488 people aren't going to read this post, twist it around, argue over it, and write angry response posts to it. I can ramble and make irrational points in peace. Yay for semi-anonymity!

OMG I REALLY NEED TO GET BACK TO WRITING SKOM. srsly, I'm so sorry for the lack of updates, guys :( I keep trying, but the mothereffing fic won't let me work on it. It squirmed out of my control somewhere around chapter 15, and now I'm stuck with a disaster that refuses to resolve itself. GUH. Okay, screw homework, I'm going to write RIGHT NOW. Wish me luck :|

(tbh, this entire post was just an excuse to pimp ldws again :D)
