I would really appreciate it if anyone could give me some serious crit on Sylarface. ;; I know that he can be a very difficult character to portray without going overboard in either direction, and though I've been excited about the events he's been going through recently in [livejournal.com profile] damned and the development they've been allowing me to do with him, I don't want to go down an S3 road and screw things up with too much emo and not enough evil. So... yeah. D8 Been really worried about that, and I'll gratefully take any comments, critiques, suggestions – anything! I'd love anything. <3333

ALSO I GOT A NEW PHONE ALIAS 2 WOOOOOOOO

Holy shit, I haven't updated my journal in like a month and a half, have I?

WELL, UM, ANYWAY. YES, went to Japan for two weeks. 8D It was fantastic. I BOUGHT NINE DOUJIN MOSTLY HUGHES/ROY HA HA HA HAAA FOR 25 BUCKS. THIS DOUJIN STORE'S FMA SECTION WAS SO HUGE IT TOOK BATHS AT SEA WORLD IT HAD SEPARATE LABELED SECTIONS FOR PAIRINGSkjhfkasdjhgkalsjs Yes, this was the highlight of my trip wow I am not a loser. But seriously, it was great and it made me realize I do like to travel... just not with my parents. I walked a hell of a lot and got in actually decent shape but um now I am out of it again. D: And going back to my usual poundage ugghhhh.

I SHOULD MAKE A JAPAN POST but I probably never will durrrrrrr me but yeah, spent a week in Tokyo, the rest of the time in Kyoto, and took a day trip to Hiroshima. Spent a night in a ryokan and went to an onsen, which was quite pleasant. And ummm SAW COURT. <3! WOOOO.

Of course, I came back almost immediately to APPS APPS APPS and then promptly became sick, so that stalled my jet lag recovery for a while. D8 Once I got out of it, I was determined to start exercising again, so I pulled out the ol' DDR dance pad and I've been trying to do that every day but have been failing these past couple days. OH AND WE RANDOMLY GOT AN XBOX 360, FUCKING FINALLY. I spent like seven hours yesterday playing Mass Effect asfjkhaksfja. My brother pitched in on it and my parents paid for the rest as an early birthday gift to me, since when my actual birthday rolls around, it'll be about a week and a half before my application to LMU is due.

Oh, yeah, I also did that – visited an LMU admissions counselor and gave her my transcript and AP scores and stuff and asked her the questions I had and so on and so forth. She said I was good and competitive so hopefully I have a shot of getting in. Woooooooo.

Anything else? Ummmm nah – Japan just makes me wish I did more physical things instead of sitting on my fat ass. :| I THINK I WILL TRY TO PLAY OBLIVION FROM THE TREADMILL TOMORROW. LOLSCREENADDICTION

Also, the reason I finally made an entry was because I remembered it'd been a hell of a long time since I'd taken the small pleasure of picking out a Nathan mood icon etwaeslfka. ILU SO MUCH FLYING MAN WHICH IS MAYBE WHY I STILL DREAD SEEING THE REST OF S3 OH FUCK ME. THE HORRIBLE SEASON WHICH, BY THE WAY, STALKED ME TO JAPAN; I GO TO MY HOTEL ROOM TO FIND A TELEVISION PROGRAM PAMPHLET WITH SEASON 3 HIRO ON THE FRONT AND MORE ADS O ON THE INSIDE SITTING ON MY PILLOW. /whinewhinewhine

OH OH AND. WAS I CORRECT IN DISCOVERING THAT THIS COMING SEASON OF SUPERNATURAL PREMIERES ON OCTOBER 4TH??? WHICH IS MY BIRTHDAY??? Because if true, I am SO having a combo birthday/Supernatural premiere party AHAHAHA. I WANT AN IMPALA-SHAPED BIRTHDAY CAKE. :|

the end

Also oh shit I need to throw Sybrows out into the ZOMBIE MADNESS, don't I? :X

.........also I need to make that Nathan layout I keep telling myself I'll do to match my moodtheme. 8D SOMEDAY WHEN I AM NOT DOING TONS OF OTHER THINGS.

ANNNND I SHOULD HAVE CLICKED "SUBMIT" HOURS AGO WAT SELF

Holy crap I have not updated in a month.

UHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Started school; switched classes around a bit; trying to use Schoolhouse (which is amazing) to fully organize myself since I actually have a full load of classes now; hoping to drive down to see [livejournal.com profile] tinted_glass on Sunday; need to beg my Film 2 instructor to let me use a laptop in class since I kind of need it to take proper notes; filmed my mom's friend's son's environmental speech thing and she gave me a 50 dollar check for it, which I lost, but it's okay since I didn't deserve it anyway for being late :(

ORITE WE GOT THIS AWESOME NEW SONY CAMCORDER FOR CHRISTMAS except the only problem is that, as my computer is now, it's only compatible with my bootleg version of Final Cut Pro 6. Hmmmm. Might have to try out an actual legal version of Final Cut Express 4 thar, seeing as it's reasonably priced (and since I refuse to use the new iMovie incarnations oh god they are hideous).

Also, during the course of browsing Mac freeware sites, I came across the absolutely most obscenely ridiculous application that has ever been conceived by humankind. AND IT'S AWESOME. It's around the time you find yourself swinging around a piece of equipment worth a thousand dollars while blaring Duel of the Fates out of your desktop speakers that you realize you are kind of HOLY SHIT THE KEYBOARD LIGHTS UP TOO GODDAMN

And auugghhh I should post since I have no idea where my night went. AT LEAST I DID HOMEWORK. And some modstuff.


....I knew there was something I was missing. During the past few months, I have become a fucking beast at Elite Beat Agents and I am so addicted that I ordered myself some Ouendan 2. Of course, I'm nowhere in [livejournal.com profile] wyna_hiros's league, who begged me to download Osu! and play with her and who promptly whooped my ass and made me cry like a little girl. (Cry for MOAR, that is. So fucking fun and I don't even know whyyyyyyyy. D:)

And one more thing. These videos? Should not be so hilarious.

oh god I need to sleep but I also need to do posts sfksdfkjsd I guess I'll sleep and... do posts when I wake up. Auuugghh. ;__; HOW DO I WASTE TIME SO SKILLFULLY (hint: see above)

BUT HEY I DID HOMEWORK. :3

Okay. I only have scope, psychological effects, and Batman third-person sample left to do. Okay. ;; I have later today (once I sleep) and the day after, right? I CAN DO THIS. (I'm totally waking up "early" today to get in extra hours on this. >_>)

IN OTHER NEWS, my birthday this year was awesome and touched me deeply simply for the fact that my friends and family showed me, through little things, just how much they knew me and wanted to make me feel special. My friends apparently conspired together and succeeded at surprising me with exactly what I wanted (aka APOLLO JUSTICE and SUNNY SEASON 3 WOOO), and for my 21st, my dad got a bottle of champagne ahahaha. 8D I really don't like the taste of alcohol, but I had about a quarter of a glass for the sake of the occasion. Because yes. 21.

And seriously, even though I didn't go out and do anything out of the ordinary, I didn't need to. My parents being sweet and my buds being there to hang out with me and surprise me with Batman PEZ dispensers and Ben & Jerry's chocolate chip cookie dough is all I need in my old age.

We ordered pizza, ate cake, and watched Beauty and the Beast and Iron Man. It was amazing. <3

Man, I haven't updated in like... over two weeks. D8 This is especially weird considering that important shit has actually been going on:

• My brother went off to college! I thought I'd be sad, but the only real difference in my life has been peace and quiet and the occasional realization of HEY I DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT MY LITTLE BROTHER SCREWING ____ UP ANYMORE. As our final family excursion, we went to see The Dark Knight in IMAX; my second time in IMAX, their first time. They were all v. impressed, which is saying something considering this was my parents' THIRD TIME seeing the movie. YEAH. MY PARENTS. THREE TIMES JESUS. My grand total is five times now ogawd.

• I started the fall semester of school! \o/ I'm taking Speech 1, Astronomy 1, and Film 1. In Film 1, I somehow ended up sitting next to this girl who ended up in my mini-discussion group and with whom I had the following exchanges:

Exchanges. )

We ended up talking about shows and movies and stuff during the break and she also fangirled the exact same way over how Dark Knight was written so amazingly and adapted so brilliantly from the comics specifically with the parallels between Two-Face and the Joker and Batman and SO DELICIOUS kasdjhfk which is something I uh DID NOT EXPECT to come across RANDOMLY. Plus, she's interested in writing. WHUT.

I also ended up running into an old high school class buddy with whom I rambled with about MGS back in the day, so we exchanged phone numbers and e-mail addresses and stuff, which was cool. :D

• I FINALLY finished season 2 of Dexter! Unfortunately, Dexter suffers the same fate as Heroes in that its first season is absolutely phenomenal and then its second season is uh.... not. D: Still, while the ending was kind of dissatisfying to me, it was a hell of a lot better than the middle of the season. FOR BOTH SHOWS I WISH THE BEST OF LUCK FOR SEASON 3.

• Speaking of Heroes: Watched the deleted scenes on Court's s2 DVDs... AND NOW I KNOW WHERE NATHAN DISAPPEARED TO IN S2, JESUS. !Deleted Scenes, S2, and S3-Teaser spoilers! )

It was also really cool to see MOAR NATHANSdkfjshfds ::foams at mouth:: the alternate ending for S2 and all of the now-unuseable footage that came of it. Definitely makes the DVDs of an otherwise disappointing season worth the money for a hardcore Heroes fan IMHO.

...AND I NEED TO WORK MORE ON BATMAN APP AHHHHHHHH and omg SYLAR AND PETER DUKIN' IT OUT KINDA WOOO

WOO, Christmas is over, and of course that means I have shiny new things from shiny people. <3 I'm really happy with all the stuff I got this year, from the smallest thing to the biggest thing, which is... strange, since this is one of the first years where I haven't asked for any one big huge thing from my parents--what I wanted was an SD card, Guitar Hero III (minus any guitar), and the Heroes DVD set. My brother and I got my parents all three Bourne DVDs (they LOVE those movies) and I got my brother World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, which I knew he'd enjoy and get a kick out of. <3 Also got Court RE4 for Wii and yaaay so glad it was a hit. 8D

My parents almost didn't go searching for the stuff I wanted when they were all out of EVERYTHING at this one Best Buy but then they did and FOUND THE STUFF so when I opened my big box of stuff, the first thing I saw was the Heroes DVDs and I was all "YOU DID FIND THEM!!!" and... stuff. 8D And then they totally surprised me with the s3 House DVDs, which I'd wanted but felt I shouldn't ask for, and my brother, who's usually so crappy with gifts, was really sweet this year and got me the s2 Batman: The Animated Series DVDs which I'd JUST BEEN EYEING at Best Buy the other day as something I really wanted but would probably never actually ask for. And they also happen to have a TON of episodes I remember from my childhood and wanted to see again and stuff. SO OMG. (That one episode that's basically Dean's djinn experience except with Batman? DDD: I really remembered that one clearly, and it was like the SECOND episode on the DVDs, D'AWWW, BRUCE <333)

The Christmas Haul List! )

Have I ever mentioned my dad can cook like a mofo? Because he can. On Christmas Eve, my dad ovened up this RIDICULOUSLY huge and RIDICULOUSLY delicious pre-cooked honeyed ham that we had with a bunch of other stuff like potatoes and artichokes, and then on Christmas Day, he put his full meat-cooking skill to the test and made this HUGEASS PRIME RIB for all the ten other people (+my four immediate family members) who came over, plus buttered baked potatoes and all this other stuff and oh my god that prime rib was SO FUCKING GOOD. And then we had dessert. And oh man. DELICIOUS.

Anyway, I was both extremely happy with the gifts I got this year as well as the gifts I got for other people. I realized this year how fun it is to wrap things up all nicely and I also realized how awesome it is to get someone something they'll love but something they won't really expect, and to see the look on their face when they open it is really exciting.

...I SOUND SO CORNY.

Anyway, later on that night, I went and picked up Court and brought her back here once I'd asked my mom if she wanted to watch the first couple episodes of Heroes with me (which Court wanted to join in on :X) annnd we watched them. And my mom seems to really like it so far! (She was all "THEY'RE ALL INTERESTING except for that Niki woman." ROFL) And she had some awesome reactions to stuff:

Re Bennet: "THAT GUY IS SUCH A WEIRDO."
Re Mr. Muggles: "I'm not THAT bad with Jack, am I?"
Re Niki and Micah: "IS IT THE KID DOING ALL THAT STUFF?"
Re Hiro in New York: "OH MY GOD FIVE WEEKS???"

Re Petrellis: "What, so are all the male members of their family able to fly at a certain age and the younger one hasn't gotten there yet?"
Me and Court: "....PFFFFFFT HAHAHAHAHAHA"
Mom: "WHAT, WHAT'S SO FUNNY?"

But yeah, first Supernatural, and now Heroes, hopefully! I'm glad I can share this stuff with my mom, woo. AM I WEIRD?

But yeah. Um. Yeah. 8D

HELLO, NEW FANDOMSECRETS FRIENDS ♥ ♥ ♥ !!! Not one but TWO of you guys involved CRAZY coincidences, oh my god. And as both of you two are into Heroes, I THINK YOU'LL UNDERSTAND WHEN I SAY I HOPE THIS MEANS WE'RE ABOUT TO DEVELOP SUPERPOWERS OR SOMETHING. Since, you know, they go hand-in-hand with impossible coincidences. :X

(Also, I apologize in advance to you guys for caps and incessant babble. THEY ARE PART OF WHO I AM. And if you wonder who this "Court" is who I always talk about and yell "godammit" at, it's [livejournal.com profile] burningvigor and I'm yelling "godammit" at her because she got me thoroughly fixated on Nathan Heroes, as much as I resisted through staunch denial. D:)

Umm, in regards to not fandomsecrets... been working on that vampire!Dean fic, though I skulked off to play Guitar Hero. I FEEL LIKE I'M GETTING BETTER AT HITTING THOSE CRAZYFAST NOTES. ...I mean, not the CRAZYcrazy fast notes, but uh... the ones between fast and crazyfast. D: I don't make any sense.

Also, I really, really need to get caught up on Dexter. Everyone's telling me that Doakes is amazing in that first of the three episodes I haven't seen and kadsjfhs need to catch up my mom with the show in general too.

Should get back to writing now, though. WOO. ...or sleeping.

Edit: Oh, also: TADAAAAH, cafepress test-drive bumper sticker. I AM VERY PROUD even if I stole the slogan from some other t-shirt that I think [livejournal.com profile] geminion got but which doesn't exist anymore. ;[ I am so going to put it on my bumper once my car isn't so filthy.

.....GODAMMIT, COURT.

Happy Thanksgiving, fellow Americans! And to everyone else... good evening? :D I'm the kind of person who actually loves Thanksgiving because my dad makes a mean Thanksgiving meal--seriously fucking delicious. Could do without my failure grandmother from my mom's side who pretends that she knows us grandchildren so well when she doesn't know us at all, wtf awkward, but THE AWESOME FOOD MAKES UP FOR ALL OF IT TWO-FOLD.

Full for now but I'll be all over those leftovers tomorrow.

I GOT COURT'S GIFT IN THE MAIL TODAY, AKA TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS!!! omg need to get to godot nownownownownow and I hope I don't get terribly spoiled for anything D:

Played through the first case; now I'm gonna take my chance to work on the Supernatural fic before NaNo starts. Speaking of NaNo, I should get a writing playlist together like [livejournal.com profile] elendraug suggested; seems like a really good idea.

Don't you hate it when you've just been thinking of a song you want to hear, but then you forget what it was once you get a chance to open your music? kfjhksdf

Halloween tomorrow! (Or today, depending on how you look at it.) I'll probably throw some kind of costume together and man the door for trick-or-treaters; had a lot of fun doing that last year and seeing all the adorable little kids. :D

And ummm I need to respond to all of you guys' comments. <3 BUT FOR NOW, PRODUCTIVITY CALLS!

Edit: UGH I just realized I've forgotten to post AGAIN at [livejournal.com profile] damned for people who know who they are (+ for Head Doctor man) but now it is sleepy time and DDDD: SORRIES ALL AROUND aw man, I should really drop one... or two... or all of my characters; I really, really suck at keeping up with it all as a player.

First off, sorry I disappeared for three days--Court was in town and we distracted each other with our new favorite shows. WHAT NEW FAVORITE SHOWS, YOU ASK? WELL.

HOW ERIN GOT HOOKED ON SUPERNATURAL. No spoilers. )

So now I've seen up to the first episode of Season 3 aaaaaaaaaaaand I kinda bought the FIRST SEASON DVDs. >_>;;; SHOWING IT TO COURT AND MY MOM. Gonna ask for the second season for Christmas. Omgomg.

I'll make a more coherent entry about my opinions about the show once I've gotten some sleep and am not brain dead. But I AM SO EXCITED THANK YOU FAM FOR INTRODUCING ME AND SHARING WITH ME THIS WONDERFULNESS

[livejournal.com profile] pandaheero and [livejournal.com profile] evildrew are amazing and treated me to Benihana AND BLINDFOLDED ME SO I COULDN'T SEE WHERE THEY WERE TAKING ME and then they gave me CAKE and GUITAR HERO II WITH A GUITAR EEEEEEEEEEEEE <3333333 Andrew and I got to do multiplayer on Guitar Hero (finally) and it was literally ROCKIN'.

Afterwards, my dad and I picked up food from my favorite Japanese place and took it home (we couldn't go to dinner because my mom is sick) and then I came home and have been playing GUITAR HERO. I WANT TO GET TO FREEBIRD. (I played through Guitar Hero II with [livejournal.com profile] oh_my_stars and [livejournal.com profile] burningvigor before, but now I HAVE ONE OF MY OWN. FOREVA. AHAHAHA.)

SPEAKING OF COURT, SHE GOT ME GODOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY. YES. PW3. YES.

cdfjhskldjfh amazing <333 THANK YOU, GUYS AND THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO WISHED ME A GOOD ONE

Omg so scary that I'm not a teenager anymore, though. ;; 20 YEARS OLD AHHH NO

Back from Palm Desert. I got a TON of new clothes and stuff from the outlets there; I'll finally stop looking like a little ragamuffin with ratty t-shirts! Also got a new laptop bag (since lord knows how much my laptop got knocked around in my old messenger bag) as well as a cute purple handbag thing for when I'm out and about.

WHILE I WAS THERE, I BEAT TWILIGHT PRINCESS. I was kinda in a rush, though, so I want to go back and do all the sidequests/heartpiece-getting I missed.

ALSO, I HAVE READ FOUR VOLUMES OF BLEACH. YOU HAPPY, [livejournal.com profile] katsudon AND CO? I would read more now, except I am weirdly nauseous and tired from a lack of sleep and excessive staying awake these past couple of days, and I should get to bed early (for once).

Not having a paid account is proving to be more trouble than I had previously considered. DAMNZ.

Also, Court's mom took us out for yummy ELECTRONIC-CRAZY lunching. Annnd yeah.

THE FEW.

THE STRONG.

THE ONLY ICONS LEFT OF ERIN'S ROSTER.

.....IT WAS SO HARD OH GOD But I'm going to be strong and not contribute direct payments to LJ any longer. :[ The last post by them seems to be a step in the right direction, but given the confusion and miscommunication last time, whereupon they had made many of the same promises and broke them, I'll wait on renewing my paid account until the company puts their money where their mouth is. Honestly, it's not even the child porn issue that bugs me, as I can see the obvious issue in that (I'm into 20+ guy characters anyway and I've never really gotten the appeal of teenage boys) but what does bug me is the lack of respect LJ showed to the fandom community's concerns. They're doing much better now, but... ehh, we'll see.

In other news, I've been playing Twilight Princess. FUNFUNFUN. OH, AND HOW HAVE I BEEN PLAYING IT?

BECAUSE I GOT A FUCKING WII.

Seriously, all last winter break, I got up at seven in the morning to stand in line at the local EB and wait for Wiis. The one time they got them shipped in was the one time that we weren't first in line. And then the other day we go in for a completely different reason in the middle of the day and VOILÁ. WIIS.

So yeah. WOOO.
