Saw Daybreakers yesterday AND WAS EXTREMELY PLEASED. LIKE, MORE PLEASED THAN I EXPECTED TO BE. HANNAH, MAKE THAT RP. WE'LL GET YOU IN CHAT AND HELP YOU OVER POSSIBLE ORGANIZATION/MOD HURDLES. OR SOMETHING. it's not like Court and I have already discussed character dynamics for certain people in that setting or anything of course not And I would totally make photoshopped yellow eyes icons. :|

I would elaborate on why I liked it so much except that I'm running late to things and really need to get my ass in the shower. D8

First of all, everyone needs to watch these. [livejournal.com profile] tinted_glass and I were literally dying of laughter last night.

Secondly, I have spent like two or three hours the past two nights (each) getting SUCKED INTO THE FUCKING STAR TREK WIKI. GODDAMMIT.

Thirdly, super delayed reaction about Star Trek being AWESOME. I lovelovelove stuff like that where a heavily established timeline is rewritten and previously famously important characters are put in different circumstances than they "should" be in, but "fate" causes them to end up in the same place due to the value of their character. OR SOMETHING. Basically it tickled me in some of my favorite places and it's a concept you don't see done as a permanent and extended thing too often. :> ALSO KIRK WAS KIND OF REALLY REALLY CUTE. And it was cool reading about the quasi-canon prequel comics where the TNG people are all like YO SPOCK WASSUP YA WE GONNA MAKE YOU A SHIP FOR BLACK HOLES AND SHIT FUCK YEAH

Fourthly, TNG is still my favfavfavsjdhfkjfsahkdgds FROM MAH CHILDHOOD and I have been reminding myself of this by watching First Contact (I'd never seen it before I CAN KIND OF UNDERSTAND WHY MY PARENTS NEVER SHOWED IT TO US FUCKING CREEPY BORG) and Generations, which I must've watched like 3487293874912 times as a kid (old man fist fight: Kirk & Picard vs. Linderman fffffffffffffffffff) ALSO I LOVE HOW TIME TRAVEL IS NEVER CONSISTENT IN STAR TREK EVER FFFFFFFF I guess that's where Heroes learned it from OHHHHH BURRRRRRRRRN

Fifthly, I am kind... of... seriouslyconsideringappingData. It would be the biggest fucking challenge ever in terms of both research, series-watching, in-game development, in-game writing, in-game informational execution, and feeling COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED OH GOD STAR TREK but that is kind of why it is so appealing. >_> I am a masochist, apparently. PLUS I HAVE SEEN LIKE MAYBE ONE EPISODE OF TOS EVER SO OH LORD POSER

Sixthly, Erin, you should worry about actual [livejournal.com profile] damned needs before thinking of apping such work-intensive characterskjshafks

Seventhly, I need TNG icons. :<

Eighthly, I WANT A FUCKING KIRK AT [livejournal.com profile] damned. ...................DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT

Last night, Court, Jenny, and myself all got it into our heads that we were going to see My Bloody Valentine 3-D together if it killed us. While Andrew tried to be a party-pooper and was all like NO NO I DON'T WANT TO GO we eventually wore him down and we all went together.

And oh my GOD this movie was JUST AS BAD AS EXPECTED aka ONE OF THE WORST I HAVE EVER SEEN HAHAHA. Of course, it was the GODDAMN ENTERTAINING kind of horrible rather than the iamsobored kind of horrible. It was a full house of immature teenagers/college kids and everyone was laughing and shouting out shit throughout the movie fffffffff. Anyway, Jensen Ackles' beautiful face on the big screen and in 3-D? Mmmmmmmmmmm. Definitely not regretting blowing money on that godawful thing but I don't think I'll ever watch it again. Ever. except maybe to make icons or something

Now, the question is: do I see Friday the 13th? Hmm... DUNNO. Probably just as bad but, you know, actually kind of scary.

I had a Dark Knight dream last night (I've been having Batman dreams in general, but this one I can actually remember a little beyond the theme) and I'm pretty sure some part of it involved me being the Joker. THIS IS.... VERY DISTURBING FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF REASONS. D: D: D: (I'm pretty sure I was scheming on how to get Sal Maroni's men to trust me enough so they would turn their backs and I could kill them. WTF.)

In other news.... okay, that's a lie since nearly everything in my life is Batman related right now as I've become fucking obsessed in a fairly short amount of time...

Turned out IMAX was sold out for today, but we're still gonna go see TDK again for free at Jenny's theatre. 8D ahhakjadsfoah Also, I went through my Batman: TAS DVDs and ripped all the best Two-Face episodes to share with the world.

Rambling about TAS Batman & Two-Face. )

Speaking of which, [livejournal.com profile] scans_daily makes me realize why I never really warmed up to the Batman/Robin pairing beyond gay jokes and laughs. Apparently, I was waiting for something much better.

Also, while before TDK, I found it impossible to choose my favorite Batman villain between the Joker and Two-Face, I can't deny that it's Two-Face at this point. Shouldn't have been able to deny it when I FLIPPED OUT at finding out Harvey Dent became Two-Face in the movie through that damn trailer, but you know, I'm overly cautious at declaring things like that. >_>;

Rambling about Two-Face and the Joker. Some TDK spoilers. )

Rambling about viral game info in regards to Harvey. )

...I'm prolly gonna ramble about apping Bruce and his possible in-game interaction (if I get in, since I expect to inevitably have competition) with his canonmates, quasi-canonmates and ttly new people next entry. SOMEONE HELP ME NO WAIT DON'T HELP ME SINCE I'M ENJOYING THIS ALL WAY TOO MUCH

First, though, need to read apps, plan out threads for Liquid, and post as Sylar. DON'T GET AMBITIOUS, ERIN.

Upon seeing The Dark Knight a second time, I've concluded that it really basically is my personal Batman wet dream realized in physical form. To-do list: Find Christopher Nolan and shake that motherfucker's hand.

Gonna see it on IMAX on Thursday. \o/ Until then, I should study for my Comm 1 final tomorrow and once finished with that, read apps since Court has thoroughly kicked my ass once again. Also gonna pray I can stop myself from making more TDK icons after this batch. Especially of Harveyface. D: Once finished with apps... gonna read all that viral game stuff and Long Halloween and Killing Joke and so forth to help supplement my Batman app in October.

I also ordered this poster. TEEEEEEEEE ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥!!!!!!!

INB4 482374928 ENTRIES ABOUT DARK KNIGHT. ...O WAIT

But seriously, with the unbelievable amount of hype surrounding this movie and the incredibly high expectations, I braced myself to not expect too much myself in order to avoid disappointment, and thank God I did. ..............IT MADE THE MOVIE EVEN MORE ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE OH MY JESUS CHRIST I THOUGHT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO MEET MY WILDEST HOPES BUT IT DID AND IT DELIVERED ON EVERYTHING I HOPED FOR AND HOLY SHIT JOKER AND HOLY SHIT TWO-FACE AND HOLY SHIT BATMAN AND HOLY SHIT THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPACT AND EVERYTHING BUT MOSTLY HOLY SHIT JOKER AND TWO-FACE HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT

I'M APPING BALE!BATMAN

NEXT CYCLE

OH GOD

WHO AM I KIDDING I NEED TO DO AN LJ-CUT ABOUT THIS

LJ-CUT. SPOILERS )

AND I COULD SAY MORE BUT OH GOD I NEED TO SLEEP and then wake up in a few hours and help my mom sort legos and then head over to Andrew's to dogsit. :3

But yeah... this is by far my favorite superhero movie of all time. No, I do not say things like this impulsively. It had my two favorite supervillains, my favorite superhero, my favorite super-universe, and it handled it all with stunning, flying colors, developing all of them with so much depth in so little time. SERIOUSLY, MGS4 AND NOW THIS? IS IT MY BIRTHDAY OR SOMETHING?

....Also, is it just me, or was this movie like 983274984x gayer than Batman Begins? BECAUSE IT WAS AWESOME.

Did you guys know I've seen the old Indiana Jones movies more times than I can count, that I can recite some Crusade scenes from memory if I try? That young Harrison Ford holy shit no one can ever compete Indy was my ill-fated, ill-timed adolescent crush?

Oh, yes. I love my Indy.

SO. For Andrew's birthday today (HAPPY (KINDA) BELATED BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] evildrew!!! <3<3<3), we went and saw Indiana Jones and the Plastic Surgery Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls on opening day. Oh yes, watching my Indy--who I had previously considered forever young--with grey hair and wrinkles was painful, and I was suspicious of this old man who had donned the fedora and pretended to be my childhood hero. Soon, however, I realized he had the same half-goofy, half-badass antics, the same cheesy lines, the same crazy escapes and generally the same spirit about him. My Indy! He lived! I sat in glee at the action scenes (Indy's greatest escape yet!), the crazy commies (no moar Nazis? weirdly sad!), the jokes (SNAKES!), and the adorable, adorable character interaction (will not spoil!). Three quarters through the movie, I was thinking "You know? This is actually PRETTY DAMN GOOD, all incredibly unsettling CGI aside!"

AND THEN

AND THEN

WHAT IN GOD'S NAME-- (SPOILERS) )

Bottom Line: Exceeded expectations even if the climax was "wtf"-worthy. Old!Indy was surprisingly easy to acclimate to after a while, even though I now feel like I need to watch Raiders to get some my hot Indy fix. >_>;

THE REAL QUESTION ON EVERYONE'S MIND?: I hate to betray my beloved Indy and say this, but yeah, Iron Man was better IMHO. D: If you have to choose between the two, GO FOR THE STILL-ATTRACTIVE TONY STARK. But seriously, I forgot to mention how I saw Iron Man, and it really was fantastic. I won't pretent to know the original canon (omgposer) but the movie was super-enjoyable even for someone new to the series.

THE REAL, REAL QUESTION ON EVERYONE'S MIND?: Actually, it's kind of hard to say if it was better than Temple of Doom, considering the ending. The character interaction works in its favor, though. I SUPPOSE ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

Also, one has to wonder why all these ancient civilizations spent centuries building these intricate structures that are DESIGNED TO IMMEDIATELY FALL APART ONCE SOMEONE ACTUALLY SETS FOOT IN THEM.

We need an Indy at Landel's, stat. A young one. 8D

ORITE: Two more things:

CONCERNING SUPERNATURAL

CONCERNING GAY SUPERHEROES

I blame [livejournal.com profile] famira for the last one.

Supernatural last night was AWESOME. Omg DEAN you angst-ridden thing. D: <33333 My mom watched on a different TV and she CAME IN HERE TO BASICALLY RAMBLE AT ME ABOUT HOW SAD IT WAS hahaha. <333 Apparently, my dad watched it with her, and at the end he was like: "...I don't get it." Well, obviously. :X This episode was DEAN ANGST episode, so next one looks like SAM ANGST episode? Wtf Groundhog Day gone bad BUT I'M SURE IT WILL BE WIBBLE-INDUCING ENTERTAINING.

Uhhhmm god, I had HICCUPS FROM HELL YESTERDAY and they kept coming back intermittently. D: I tend to have really bad hiccups way too frequently but um yes. Also, the putty on top of my mouth stitches came off, but I keep putting it back on anyway so I don't play around with the area with my tongue or something? Baaahh I'm all nervous to brush my teeth around that area so my mouth tastes like crap. D:

Court and I organized the roommates last night finally! There's one pair-up on there which, uh, we kinda obsessed over since it was SO AWESOME but would be SO BIASED, but we really couldn't think of a better combination and would have paired up those particular characters even if different people played them, and so we decided to go ahead and do it on the condition that I REALLY got active again AND I POSTED LIKE CRAZY LAST NIGHT TO GET MYSELF BACK IN THE GROOVE WOOO. Judging from the relative ease with which I posted for Cid and Scar once I actually got down to business and how I've actually been keeping up with the sphinx thread, I'm starting to think I can app Sylar a third character without having to drop someone after all. BUT ONLY DAYSHIFT WILL TELL.

I'm also feeling I'm sorely due for a replay of FFVII, because as admittedly satisfied I usually am with my Cid, I worry a lot of the time that I haven't played the game in so long that my characterization is gradually getting off and I don't even know it. Even if I'm consciously choosing to ignore Compilation canon.

Now, I am getting ready to go over to Andrew's house for some mutual Bay Cities (amazing sandwich place) lovin' and for Matrix marathoning once Jenny comes over.

As some of you might already know, watching Top Gun and dementedly singing Danger Zone is a beloved pasttime among me, [livejournal.com profile] evildrew, and [livejournal.com profile] burningvigor. So, imagine my shock when I found out that Iceman (Val Kilmer) and Maverick (now batshit Tom Cruise) weren't the best things to oogle at in that movie.



Picspam: Adrian Pasdar in Top Gun )

And that's it! Woo. This is all made about x91283 better due to the fact that Nathan, of course, was canonly a Navy fighter pilot. Yes.

this is exactly why I didn't want to get into live-action series AUUGGHHH WHYYYY FILMOGRAPHIIIEESSS SUCKING UP MY LIIIIFE god I feel like a stalker

Also, sorry, f-list, for ttly spamming you with above-cut pictures as of late. :X I can't help myself.

Since a kind, kind Anonymous has gifted me with a paid account, I should make good use of it and do the voice meme everyone and their mother has posted! I realize I vowed to no longer directly support LJ financially, but it'd be in bad taste to not honor someone else's generosity, YEAH? D: In any case, no matter how much I might whine about being a PLEB, you kind, kind, people, don't worry about giving the gift of love paid time. <3 SINCE I TOTALLY APPRECIATE IT AND LOVE YOU FOR IT, DON'T GET ME WRONG <3333 but I feel bad in the end for going back on my word. D:

Voice posts are fun, right? You get to hear funny accents if your friends are from far, far away. All we really want is to hear your voice, we don't care what you're saying. So here's a list of typical meme questions that would otherwise be boring, but when communicated aloud - well, it's entertaining. Answer these questions in your post, and encourage others with voice-posting abilities to do the same.



1) What's your name?
2) How old are you?
3) Where are you from? Are you living there right now?
4) Is it cold where you are?
5) What's the time?
6) What are you wearing?
7) What was the last thing you listened to?
8) What was the last thing you ate?
9) What was the last thing you watched on tv?
10) What's your favorite tv show? Why?
11) Quick! Find a book, or something with text on it! Flip to a random page and read some of it! GO!
12) What was the last movie you saw? How was it?
13) Do YOU think you have an accent? Talk about that.


IT CUT ME OFF LIKE IT DID WITH COURT. ;[ So you guys don't get to hear my accent ramble. Oh, well. ALSO, MY READING WAS ALL MUFFLED, DUNNO WHY. I was muffled in general.

...I feel like my voice is pretty deep for a girl. XD; IONO.
