express yourself


also, is it possible for Shue to be more of a dick? Or Finn?

eta: I also feel like one of the few people who doesn't hate Jesse St James. He may be a dick, but at least he's not a passive aggressive dick like Finn and Shue.

and and and SANTANA ILU.

virtual achievements

yay, I (finally) got Loremaster of Kalimdor! And I have four more dungeons (Scholomance, Deadmines, Stormwind Stockades, and Gnomeregan) to get Classic Dungeonmaster, and then I'm done with EK/Kalimdor until Cataclysm.

Then it is to Outland where I have lots of stuff to do.

things no one but me will care about

1) Have signed up for the fitness challenge at work. 2 months with the end result of hopefully not sausage like arms.

2) 11 more quests for loremaster Kalimdor. 5 more dungeons for classic dungeonmaster. Starpony achieved.

3) I get to order my kitschy pseudo-flowers!

4) Nerdy or nerdiest: possibly getting a cake topper from ren faire of DRAGONS.

5) we had a conversation at work today that consisted of debating the merits of disney songs. To sum up: Menken/Ashman = best, Phil Collins = should be stricken from the canon.

i really like the Glee cast version of "Mercy" more than I actually like the original. /o\ Also, I keep picturing in my head a sherlock holmes (guy ritchie edition) vid to ramalama (bang bang). i love that song really a lot.

characters I do not expect Joss Whedon to portray well


The idea of Chris Evans* AND Joss Whedon** having a hand in Captain America makes me very very sad.

tech blog comments are nearly all useless, but this one made me laugh (re: the new Glee app for iphone/ipad) --

*in his best Sue Sylvester*

I'm shocked to see the iPhone displaying pictures of Will Schuester. I thought the screen was oleophobic.

more evidence that random singing (and dancing) makes everything better

my exciting life

things I have learned today!

--How to fold a fitted sheet. OMG. I haaaate folding bedding because I hate dealing with the fitted sheet and normally i just sort of shove them into the back of the linen closet. But now I can fold them neatly! This pleases me out of all proportion.

--How to fold t-shirts quickly

--I like the new Butch Walker album (I Liked It Better When You Had No Heart) much more than I like the last one (Sycamore Meadows)

--How to remove grease stains from clothing

--That making the ceiling fan turn the proper direction results in MUCH cooler temperatures.

i'm also thinking of doing the fitness challenge thing at work. It's at an AMAZINGLY shitty time for the first two weeks, but then I can come home and nap. and I want my arms to look nice for my ridiculously sleeveless dress. decisions, decisions.

it's been a lazy day :)

upon watching glee

the least interesting parts of this show are the ones that involve shue and finn. I like to call those parts the "going to the restroom OR kitchen OR making cookies parts."

Also, when I was in marching band, if someone acted the way Finn did and clearly couldn't commit to sparkle motion the activity, his ass would have been kicked out. So it keeps irking me that he doesn't get kicked out when everyone else -- including Puck, Brittany, Santana, Matt, and Mike -- made the commitment. And the guys made that commitment with the understanding (however temporary) that they would be off the football team if they did. ANYWAY.

How awesome is Rachel, you guys? And Santana&Brittany. And Jane Lynch.

my diamond shoes, they are a-pinching

Due to a lot of very good luck, I get to buy a new toy! and I have settled on the ipad*. So, NATURALLY, this means that I get to go through the bluray collection and try to find the ones that have digital copies that I can download and then pop on that bad boy. So far:


But no love from Iron Man. That was also one in which we were saddened by the lack of commentary. :(

I also managed to duplicate about 80% of my comfort books in some kind of digital format**. Plus I tore through Project Gutenberg to find books like the Oz series which I've wanted forever and the Austen novels and some other stuff.

I'm very excited. The boything got a new computer (for SC2 and D3 when they come out) and I get my shiny. Now I just need to find some way to skin the thing to look like a PADD and I'll be all set. Though failing that, I may just stencil DON'T PANIC on the cover and be done with it.

*I know all the arguments as to why I shouldn't get one, but when it comes right down to it, I don't mind the closed Apple ecosystem, I don't mind not being able to tinker with parts, and I do want to support a company that I think is one of the best there is at coming up with form factors that are elegant, simple to use, polished, and which don't break on me constantly. And I know that I should wait for gen2, but gen1 does what I currently would like for the form factor to do and fills a niche that I have been wanting to fill since the Kindle and Sony Reader were launched but which do more than unitask.

**I'm all for paying for things to support their producers. However, I draw the line at having to pay for an extra copy of something I have already paid for. Also, if I can't find something to buy it, OH WELL.

(unpopular) fannish opinion

I would (still) rather watch a show that tries and fails at diversity than a show that doesn't even bother.


in other news, the music from ATLA makes me happy. Here, have some: http://www.myspace.com/thetrackteammusicandsound

thing i do not understand

wtf is up with the whole "review or else!" mentality over at the pit of voles? it's severely offputting.

also, you guys, seriously, if there is a secret LJ community of good Avatar fanfic, I'm going to be so sad that I haven't found it.

maybe I will upload my Suki icon and make that default. hm.

things that get brought up during lunchtime ATLA viewing

1) In order for someone to realize that something is a badger mole or a komodo rhino or turtle duck or lion turtle, don't the individual components need to exist?

spoilery )

5) What is the ratio of benders to non-benders? And, somewhat relatedly, how does the Fire Nation -- which isn't large -- have so damn many of them?

6) If Aang is the last Air Nomad and the last Airbender, what's going to happen when the Avatar cycle comes back around to them?

7) How amazing are Katara and Sokka? Discuss.

8) How Lost Generation-y is the ATLA world? I haven't really noticed a lot of adults in the show. The kids, yes, and older people, but outside of the military and various guards and a few exceptions, I can't actually recall seeing a lot of adults.

digital media

i think i have almost talked the boything into getting an ipad (mostly I think this because I let him buy a computer and he's stopped protesting every time I make the obvious, 'THIS WOULD BE AWESOME ON AN IPAD :D? :D?" statement)


we just got Sherlock Holmes on bluray, and it came with a dvd copy and a digital copy in addition to the real version.


baen publishing.

I keep thinking of the bluray disc thing and the movies I have on it, which almost all came with a digital copy of the movie. And I keep wanting books to do the same thing. I buy a LOT of books. I want an e-reader because I'd like to be able to take one device with me instead of four books at any given time. I want to own my books instead of licensing them. And while I understand there's an infrastructure argument to be made and I'm all for publishers making money and authors making money and everyone making money off the deal, I would really really like to be able to go to a store, buy a book, and then be able to download a legit electronic copy of that book for use on an e-reader. and I have to admit to being a little sad that this doesn't already happen (Baen does it with some of their hardcovers and I think it's AWESOME).

so, you know. just putting it out there for the universe.

also, stephen fry is adorable in his enthusiasm.

ETA: also, how long before someone puts out a cover for the thing that says DON'T PANIC?

read forums or blog post comments on things like Giz and Engadget and whatever and just...despair for humanity in general?
