it's been too long

Hello LJ people. I know I have become very lazy about posting. Most of fandom has migrated over to tumblr which is sucking up most of my time due to the instant gratification of gifs and fanart. NY resolution: spend more time here :)

Anyway, the past month or so in point form:

Life stuff first ~~ had a quiet Christmas & NYEs. Work is starting to get crazy plus I am so behind in doing my cousin's books (which is entirely my own fault). Will be working most of this weekend *boohiss* Second thyroid surgery went fine. The pathology report came back and a tiny batch of cancer was found on the inside side so there was no way the needle biopsy would've picked it up anyway. Some time in March/April, will do a dosage of radioiodine and hopefully, that will be that.

Fandom stuff

~~ Survived the ending of Merlin *sniff* A lot of things happened in the finale that I loved. And the last shot just about killed me with feels.

~~ The Doctor Who Christmas episode was awesome. So totally in love with Clara Oswain Oswald. I was actually really excited about the prospect about have a 18th (?) century companion but that was not to be. The TARDIS desktop change will take some getting used to. Looking forward to the discovering the mystery that is Clara and all the 50th anniversary stuff!

~~ Watched the People's Choice Awards last night. All the fake surprise reaction shots of the winners amused me to no end. Haven't seen the SPN boys in a while -- Jensen was looking good. Something needs to be done about Jared's hair. Not surprised SPN won for Fave Sci-Fi Show (confession: I voted for DW). Not surprised about Chris Colfer winning either (behold the power of Gleeks, Klainers, Kurtsies & the CC Army). Can't believe he mentioned fanfiction LOL I was surprised about Lea Michele winning tho. And how the hell did The Wanted beat out One Direction as Best New Artist? Were the Directioners too distraught/distracted over the Harry/Taylor hookup and forgot about voting? I will never ever ever get the appeal of TSwift, sorry. Another WTF moment was Adam Sandler winning. Worst acceptance speech ever -- just bloody thank the fans & be done with it! -- and how is he still relevant.

~~ Matt Dallas (of KyleXY) has come out via twitter by announcing his engagement to long time boyfriend. Apparently Matt was one of those "not a secret but no one talks about it" like Jim Parsons & Matt Bomer? I had no idea. Anyway, congrats to the v cute couple!

~~ Les Miz, the movie musical. Watched this R. We both agreed that Russell Crowe's voice is not suited for this material. And Hugh. Oh Hugh. He's got a great voice and did a good job but his "Bring Him Home"? HORRIBLE. I was totally prepared to be shedding tears during "Own My Own", "I Dreamed a Dream" and "A Little Fall of Rain". They were all done well but what really got me was "Empty Chairs and Empty Tables". And the girl playing Young Cossette was perfection.

~~ I still haven't seen The Hobbit!! Found a DVD screener copy so hopefully can carve out some time and watch it. It's been many years since I've read The Hobbit & I don't remember much so it'll be like watching with new eyes. I have to say though that making 3 movies is too much. I've read that's there a lot of filler re: the backstory. They should've just done 2 movies.

OMG sorry for the word vomit o_O

snow + boredom = picspam!

What with the neverending snow on Saturday, other than stepping outside to meet up with Mom, I spent the day cozied up inside and killed time scouring the internet for some pictures of my favourite boys.  I haven't done a picspam in a long while and I think I may have gone a bit overboard this time, lol!


The scary part is that I could've included so many more guys.  Maybe I'll do a part two some day.  Picspams take way too long to do.

who is kyle xy?

He's my summer obsession, that's who!  =)

Actually, Kyle XY is a summer series airing on ABC Family and currently 3 eps into the second season.  A quick show synopsis -- When we first meet Kyle, he's a 16 year old boy with no memory of his past and yet displays extraordinary abilities.  He is essentially a teenaged newborn learning about the world.  We also discover something different about Kyle -- he has no belly button (ooo, can you guess the secret?)  Kyle's case is handled by Nicole Trager who decides to bring Kyle back to her home to live with her family.  Through his interactions with the Trager family and the outside world, Kyle learns about friendship, loyalty, love, music, lust, etc while he tries to remember his past.

Yea, it's your typical "special kid with no memory" premise but what makes the show work for me is Matt Dallas, the actor protraying Kyle.  His innocence and wide-eyed amazement when he encounters mundane, every day things.  His relationship with the Trager kids, Lori & Josh.  There's also the slash potential between Kyle and Declan, Lori's boyfriend, and the keeper of Kyle's secrets.  Plus, one of it's recurring guest stars is Victor Mansfield  Alex Krycek  Nicholas Lea, which is awesome.

I just re-watched the entire first season last week to refresh my memory and I loved it even more the 2nd time around.  So, let's get to the real reason behind this post -- a Matt Dallas picspam
