Friends Only!

So I've been meaning to do this for awhile, but it's finally time. No, not hammer time. Friends only time.

Currently: Not Adding

With a new job, a crazy-long commute, yoga classes, new fall teevee and an already pretty long flist I'm starting to feel like I can't keep up with everyone I already have on my flist. I'll probably open up friending again soon in the future, but for now I'm not sure I'd be a very good new friend. :(

So as many of you might have noticed from my general red-alert level of squee, I've been pretty excited about Showtime's The Borgias. AND IT IS JUST AS AMAZING AS I THOUGHT.

I urge everyone to watch it. EVERYONE IN THE UNIVERSE. It is filled with beautiful scenery and history and Francois Arnaud's FACE. I've already watched the pilot twice is two days. And thus I present in picspam form why this show is so fantastic.

HEYYYYY!! So guess who is going to LA tomorrow bright and early in the morning? ME! I'm going with some friends to visit our friend Amy that just moved out in Janurary. I'm very excited because it's been disgusting and cold and gross here. Even if it's not totally warm over there at least the odds seem to to be against getting snowed on. Hopefully?

The only thing I'm bummed about is a.) missing Gossip Girl and my recap commenting Tuesday tradition and b.) FANDOM MARCH MADNESS. UGH. Last year, ngl, Fandom March Madness was pretty much what I DID at work in March. I don't know how I should feel about that. I still remember the gchat conversations with [ profile] pinkspots talking about my bracket and all the ~fandom politics~. I think I got like 6th or something for my bracket? I was very proud of this useless accomplishment, I remember that. Hopefully brackets won't all be done by the time I get back on next Sunday morning.

I'm stoked I've actually never been to California before. Anyway! Due to iPhone having I will be able to check LJ and maybe even answer back but I will probably be mostly busy going places and doing things and DAY DRINKINGGGGG! (Imagine that in an Oprah voice!)

So let me know if I miss anything and leave me tons of comments here as I probs won't have time to pop all over the place.

I still have to answer comments and things of that nature but I wanted to say Happy Valentine's Day to all of you lovely people! Frankly, VDay is just another day for me but all you lovely people in relationships should have a great day.

And people who aren't that feel bad about it today just remember that you have plenty of friends and family that love you. Also it's totally socially acceptable to gorge on candy today, so there's that!

Thought this meme seemed cute! If you have a thread link me up so I can leave you some love <3


PS: For anyone who doesn't know (since I don't think I mentioned) I have a tumblr and my name there is newsprintsmudges.

mojotastic: (SV- Allison Mack Hates the Poor!!)
So I was originally writing up a post about going to see Allison Mack in Apple Cover over the weekend but then I got side tracked by real life stress today and now I'm catching up on the Chloe fan kerfuffle and laughing and shaking my head. So this post will be about that instead with my Apple Cove stuff to come tomorrow. (I KNOW GUYS MARK YOUR CALENDAR. lol no one cares)

As funny as I find most of this (and it's pretty funny) it also bums me out. Especially after my lovely experience with everyone at Apple Cove. We weren't all one type of Chloe fan and we managed to eat Greek food and unsucessfully try to hail cabs and not murder each other. OMG it's not even a good TV show. We're not fighting over Shakespeare here guys. This is a show that can count among it's plotlines FAKE BABY and UNDERGROUND RAILROAD.

The thing that I always really liked about my/our corner of the fandom is how we stuck together. We sort of felt like the underdogs, just like Chloe herself. In my time in SV fandom, I've seen people ship all kinds of Chloe pairings. Chlex. Chlark. Chlionel (Ok that's mostly just me). Chlollie. Chavis. Chlois although that is more a theory than a ship but let's just go with this.

The cool thing about being a Chloe fan always used to be that we were all pretty chill with multi-shipping. Let's not ruin the one good thing we got out of this show. BE COOL BBS.

I think a good rule of thumb is to just not be an asshole. Not that hard.

You don't like such and such pairing or such and such thing? Coolio. No one cares. You love such and such pairing? Awesome! I still don't care but I hope it brings you joy. Let's not be so invested in the opinions of others. I know the "SOMEONE IS WRONG ON THE INTERNET" urge can get so strong sometimes but at those times ask yourself "Am I being a douche?" If the answer is yes (and you will know when it is) then just take a deep breath and realize that contrary to what facebook/twitter/blog culture tells us, we don't ACTUALLY need to post every thought we have. Sometimes censoring is just being polite.

The show is almost over and I can guarantee, because I have been following (if not watching the last two years) this terrible mess so long that not everyone will be happy how it ends. Probably no one will. I'm personally holding out for rocks fall, everyone dies. So instead of making even the fandom for this shitty show shitty can we just BE COOL? Please? I just want to be like that chick in Mean Girls and bake a cake full of rainbows and get the world to sing in perfect harmony.

Dammit Smallville fandom, this is why we can't have nice things.

ETA: Decided to unlock the post because I stand by my "please let's not be douches" public service announcement.

So! It's been a whole week into January but I never post anything on time anyway! I wanted to do a top movies or top TV show of 2010 picspam but I got lazy. Plus TV shows are hard since they run September to September and frankly I'm not sure I can even think of ten movies from this year I liked all that much. (The list would be Inception! Inception! INCEPTION!)

Instead I did my Top 15 Albums of 2010. I did a Top 10 of 2009 last year and it's really fun to look back on. I decided to expand the field this year because there were a lot of albums that I really liked (without being crazy in love with like with Florence or Metric last year). Also apparently I am terrible about talking about what I like about music? I would be a really terrific music reviewer apparently. "THIS MAKES ME HAPPY! THIS SOUNDS REAL NICE! I LIKE THE PART THAT IS PRETTY!"

So it's Christmas Eve everyone. Time to get together in front of the fire/yule log/teevee and drink hot chocolate/eggnog/seasonal-beverage-of-your-choice and spend time with the ones you love.

I hope everyone has a great Christmas this year! I know I've been a bad friend recently but you guys make fandom and the internet a great place to be, despite the rampant crazy. I know I can always count on my flisters to post things that are awesome and to make me smile. I hope you guys know how great you are and have an equally great holiday! I <3 you all!

I watched Black Swan Monday night. IT WAS VERY PRETTY AND FREAKY AND AWESOME. So I decided to picspam. Spoiler alert: when hopped up on cold medicine that movie is even more trippy.

Black Swan Picspam! No actual spoilers other than 'there is ballet!' and 'weird shit happens'. )

So I actually missed watching the premiere of Gossip Girl live because I was crashing a show at Fashion Week, which I felt was probably the only acceptable reason to miss my favorite flossy darlings.

I was planning on just posting up a short entry with some thoughts and maybe one graphic of Blair and Serena prancing through Paris. But then, as it turned out, the whole episode was so pretty I found it sort of impossible not to picspam. My lack of self control, let me show you it.

Hi guys! So I'm titling this post "Morgan Tells You What to Read By Babbling Incoherently And Then Using Capslock A Lot." I'm sure you will all enjoy it.

I've been talking on and off recently about how I've been reading The Lymond Chronicles and how they are the best thing ever. And a few people have even expressed interest in also picking them up, even though I've prefaced every squee-fest about them with "BUT ALSO THEY ARE CONFUSING". At least two/three people on my flist I believe have at least started the books.

So I thought to myself, I thought "Self! If you can get a few people to pick up these books just by randomly mentioning how they are melting your brain, imagine what you could do if you made a pimp post! Maybe a whole OTHER PERSON would start reading. And then you would have THREE people to talk about them with. Three! Imagine!"


Book Recommendation Pimp Post!: The Lymond Chronicles. They are the best and you should read them!!1! )

I've been considering starting up a Lymond Book Club community here on LJ with [ profile] mordororbust. I know there's a general comm for Lymond stuff but it's actually hard to discuss the books without getting spoiled. I think it would be fun to have people discussing all the different books as they read them and we could break the books down into parts for discussion posts, etc. Plus my immediate reaction whenever anyone mentions they are reading the books is generally "OMG! What do you think?! Where are you? How do you feel? Who is your favorite? TELL ME YOUR FEELINGS!" Which I think gets a bit creepy. So if we had a book club I might stop creeping people out by sending them weird Lymond emails.

Would anyone else reading the books/thinking of reading the books/have read the books be interested in a Lymond Book Club?
