girlanachronism: an animated list of reason why I no longer have an appropriate icon (Default)
As some of you may know, my laptop got broken over New Year, and I lost everything on it. I wasn't that bothered, really, because it was mostly uni stuff and since it's between years there was nothing on there I needed to save. But I was a bit sad about the fic bits and pieces.

Anyway, today I found an old back up drive, IDK, maybe a year old? I spent way to much time looking through all the old files. It was awesome :D all this stuff I'd forgotten starting, stuff I thought was lost, stuff I can't even identify as coherent sentences...

I'm kinda tempted to take some of them up again. But I haven't written much for ages now, I think I'd be even worse than when I started, if that was possible.

Besides, there's just so much! Seriously, whole piles of fakenews stuff; the first chapter of a sort of record-store au I started once, the first chapter of a film noir-ish mystery thing (which I had a sort of plot outline to at one point but I forgot it and it's not on the harddrive, so I too have no idea how it ends), a couple of random pieces of girl!Ollie and girl!Riggle, all sorts of stuff. And there's some random Good Omen-esque conversations I think I wrote before I even knew what fandom was. Little romantic Mighty Boosh fragments, too.

Oh, and for some reason roughly page long story about Howard Moon and Vince Noir buying a catapault (wtf, past-me?)

So, uh, there's is no point to this post, really, just my manic need to put my indecision into writing: on the one hand, I remember these ideas! Some of them were fun, and there are bits I still like!  On the other hand... writing is hard... and I fail at it. Really bad.

Maybe someone could adopt some of the ideas. Or something.

I might post the catapault thing for laughs, though. Gotta do something to distract myself from the fact that I broke up with my boyfriend right before fucking Valentines day *headdesk* I hate pink hearts very much right now.

Also, apparently I cannot come up with endings for fics to save my life. Godammit.

I got a job this week (cue insane celebrating! yee hah!) which means I'll be able to buy all those lovely, lovely things that I definitely don't need and even more definitely WANT LIKE BURNING. I may single handedly save the little record store in town... I'm going to buy so much vinyl they'll feel the aftershocks in Canada. And don't ask me how that works, it's a perfectly gorgeous, expressive, and utterly useless nonsensical metaphor that doesn't really serve its purpose but I won't hear a word against it.

Apart from that, not a lot else happening, and that's the way I like it. I saw The Hangover for a second time because I'm a doormat and my friends hadn't seen it, and walked out incredibly relieved that it was still funny enough to be enjoyable the second time. I  just have such a love for Ed Helms in that, and it's not even because of the TDS connection, since he was on way before my time. I just think he's adorable. And I have such a kink for funny, nervous, mistreated characters. "She beats you!" "That was only twice, and I was out of line..." I have not yet seen HP or Bruno, and don't really mind if it stays that way. The trailers have made me book Public Enemies, Inglorious Basterds and that new Sherlock Holmes one into my near future. Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr bickering like and old married couple is love.

Some family friends are in England at the moment. The youngest is seven and emailed me to say they're in Camden and she's looking out for Noel Fielding for me, and if she sees him she'll give him my phone number. That's why I love kids :D

I find it disproportionately hilarious that the show "Supernatural" starts  with a warning containing the words 'this show may contain supernatural themes...' MAY? May contain supernatural themes? Oh, ok then, if there's only a chance I might risk it...

Oh, and it's meme time again:

Comment and I'll give you five words that remind me of you. Then, you post these five words on your journal and explain them.

This post is just me coming to terms with the fact that I'll have no Jon or Stephen this week. By having silly silly fic ideas.  So, um, if you're not into the fakenews thang, feel free to ignore it.

...

...

I DON'T LIKE IT WHEN THEY HAVE HOLIDAYS. I'm selfish, yes. This is evident. I acknowledge it, and do not change my stance in any way. But now to the silly idea. Which is this:
  • I/We/You/Someone works out a set of rules Jon has for dealing with "Stephen". Say, 10 or 15 of them. Along the line of "when trying to work out if he is angry, ignore the content of his words and pay attention to the volume of his voice and as a last resort check his eyebrows..." but, like, better and funnier.
  • Then anyone who wants to  can take them and, like, write little drabbles for each one using whichever characters you want (but, y'know, "Stephen" will probably make an appearance, obviously...)
  • So it could be Jon/"Stephen" stuff, or examples of when people who don't know the rules interact with Stephen (Andy guesting? Bill O being a hurtful dick?) or maybe someone like Rob Corddry or Ollie is hosting cos Jon is sick and they're trying to stick to the rules and failing awesomely or... THE POSSIBILITIES. THEY ARE ENDLESS.
  • And then we can all post/share/compare the drabbles and it will be made of sunshine and rainbows
Is this a stupid idea?

Um.

Probably.

*hides*

This week I have exams, driving tests, job interviews, applications and an assignment due in.

And I've never been so bored.

Is it even possible to be bored and in a blind panic at the same time? Well, clearly yes, because that's me right now, but seriously. Wtf.

Listening to the Bugle is a lovely antidote, though, and this weeks was so sweet. Righteous indignation over Iran, then a lengthy bout of self-mocking from John. First he talked about the GQ shoot, and how they'd photoshopped him to oblivion and back, and how he didn't blame them. Then they were talking about The Guru and Andy still hasn't seen it, and John was instructing him to wait until he was on his deathbed and then watch it at his bedside, because by the time it's finished he'd be smothering him with a pillow.

I love John Oliver.

And so... I made me some John Oliver icons!






Boredom is decreasing. This is good.

And I just saw something shiny, so bye bye...

So, um, online hot comedians poll.

In first place we have Jon! In second, Stephen... "Stephen Colbert may have gained fame for his work under Jon Stewart"... oh dear lord someone let that writer know exactly what goes on here in the interwebs so they can reconsider that sentence. And rounding up the (top) threesome of awesome, John!


So, it seems that to be considered sexy all you have to do is this:






... and this:

(Firstly, Happy Birthday
[profile] theblackmeat! Am I late? Stupid international timezones.)

Ok. So I'm doing the readings for my media course, and they are bemoaning the death of journalism, criticising the monglot of traditional news institutions and singing the praises of newsblogs as 'gatewatchers' and blah blah blah, when I come across this comment about Americans: "many of whom receive their news in the form of THE PITHY SATIRE PROVIDED BY JON STEWART AND STEPHEN COLBERT."

This is an academic. In my curriculum. Quoting Stewart/Colbert as an example of a media revolution.




I promptly proceeded down a spiral of squee and procrastination, scribbling 'fuck yeah fakenews ftw' all through the margins of my course reader, making macros and now here I am sitting in the university library writing this instead of revising the validity of volenti as a defence in a tort of negligence case.

Where my beloved fandoms are concerned, I really am more excitable than a labrador puppy on crack.

What is this now? A delightful, amusing timesink? The temporal equivalent of a black hole? Very much my sort of thing?

Hell yeah.

Pick your 6 favorite fandoms and answer the questions (don't look at the questions before). Six favourite? Mon cherie you must be kidding me. I'm a fandom whore. Lets just go with six favourite at this point in time, shall we?

1. The Mighty Boosh
2. IT Crowd
3. Black Books
4. Fakenews
5. Watchmen
6. Star Trek

Me: Wow. What a crappy week.

LJ: Really? Here, have glorious Ozy screencaps

Me: Shiny... baby's so fierce...

LJ: and some fakenews picspam

Me: Oh dear god. That is not Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart making out. Twice. This... how? Wha? Don't you dare do this to me I need use of my legs, dammit. Why is there no video? Why?

LJ: and some fic recs at fakenews_fanfic

Me: Eyes... sore... from reading...so much... awesome...

LJ: new Noel Fielding icons

Me: Uhum. I shall be in my bunk.

LJ: we also have a new Adrian/Dan fan comm-

Me: OH HOLY SHIT YES. Pretty boys! Hugs! Significant glances! Angst! Competing to see who has the cutest pout! Dan, just stop hitting him and kiss him, dammit...




I LOVE THE INTERWEBS.

I just wanted to ponder my own uselessness. Seriously, it's depressing. I think I need to make a move to less awesome fandoms, lower the standards a bit. Every time I go to make an icon or write something... wham. Someone has just posted something mind-bendingly brilliant and all will to continue fades to nothing.

How can I compete with revolution through comedy in Orwellian dystopias or Adrian Veidt with a purple kitten on his head? Really? Did I ever have a chance? I am so not an internet person. And I think photoshop hates me.

But the fact is, you guys have me hitched. I'm addicted. Couldn't leave if I wanted to. It's stupid... I've had this journal for like two months, but in terms of use I may as well have had it for a week. See that little mouse? The one hiding in the corner watching everything go by with big wide eyes? Wave to it, cos its me.

Meh. Maybe I'll get braver with time. After all, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] theblackmeat , I'm now creeping out of my mouse hole to friend some people.  :)
