barkinmad: (All My Single Ladies)
I have claimed a prompt at [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang.

I have two essays, a final exam (after the test I took today), and all my packing for school ahead of me in the next week.

One of these essays is for the class that wanted me to take Jersey Shore as a serious cultural example. Guess which class I don't give a shit about?!

I might sign up for a GameFly account so I can have my Photobucket bandwidth back. I'd split it up with all my friends so we'd only each have to pay a dollar a month, or we'd trade of paying each month in a rotation. I've already gotten two people to say yes, which means I might be taking my PS2 to college with me.

It's gotten to the point where the difference between reading my flist and reading my FB timeline is sometimes negligible. Not even close to possible two years ago. I love it.

Tell me about your life!
barkinmad: (I Can't Believe You)
Hey, so, I've been spending ALL my time at the [livejournal.com profile] kink_meme recently. Which is all well and good, because I LOVE it and it's full of puppies and rainbows and things.

But I kind of feel like I'm missing out on other parts of fandom? I joined a lot of comms, but I don't have time to read anything (partly because I'm lazy, partly because I'm juggling about eleven things right now in preparation for school).

So...I hate to ask this of my flist, usually, because I feel I should be PROACTIVE! and SELF-RELIANT! and actually dip my toes into fandom itself, but this is kind of like that, right?

Basically, I need recs.

I honestly don't even care about the pairing (I'm kind of an across-the-board shipper), as long as the story is really good or insanely funny.

Also, I'm starting on Rosetta Stone for British English and French. The latter might be because of JGL wait, what who said that?

But I figure outside of my crazy, it's a good skill to have, and I know Spanish pretty well and my friend wants to brush up on hers and, uh...yeah. I'm not a psycho, I swear.

A)RULES:
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

1.
Weekend Update
It's old school SNL and Jane Curtain. What's not to like? The first time I saw this sketch I was on my sides laughing my ass off.

2.
Circle of Life, AtU
Oh Across the Universe ♥ I don't know why I don't have more icons of this movie, but the whole film is just so beautiful. There really isn't any plot but the cinematography more than makes up for it (not to mention the music and *coughJimandJoecough*). I ship Jude/Lucy so hard.

3.
Where's Cardiff?, DW
Cause who wants to be in bloody Norway?

4.
Peter Rabbit, The Monkees
This is my happy place icon. Peter is so adorable and cute, and though I know he's just acting, and he got kind of frustrated with how people kept mistaking him for his character...I still love him. I just want to hug him and pat him on the head and tell him he can wear the bunny suit if he wants to because he's a special snowflake.

5.
Brick, Brick
BRIIIIIICK. If you weren't aware of one of the main reasons why I'm so goddamn obsessed with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, GO WATCH THIS MOVIE. Seriously, it's one of the first movies I watched where the stylization and writing just completely blew me away.


B)Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one reason why I like you. Then re-post this and spread the love.

C) Step 1: Put your MP3 player on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 15 songs that play.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Strike out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google, Last.FM, or any other search engine is CHEATING!


Musics )
barkinmad: (Pleeeeease?)
Are we absolutely certain that the Glee cast twitter accounts are valid? Because they're not certified. I want proof of purchase.

Also, my dear friend [livejournal.com profile] safebehindteeth linked me to two of the greatest things ever. This and this mean that I will never again lack for the lulz. The first one is now my background.

For all the friends I may or may not make (I'm still waiting to hear back from some of you), howdy! I'm kind of just getting back to posting on LJ since Twitter took over my life, but I've been here for a while. My profile says a lot about my favorite movies, shows and people men. I'm currently in a musical phase, which means lots of Glee, Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland pictures and humming while I walk. Enjoy it, one day I'll go back to comics book heroes and wanting to see things blown up.

I went to see "Princess and the Frog" today, and, well. Okay. )

And just because I've been collecting Glee gifs and re-watched Sectionals:

Question

Aug. 15th, 2009 03:00 pm
barkinmad: (Georgie-Worgie)
Does anyone know of any really good biographies of George Harrison? I know some must exist, and I could search for them myself, but I'd feel a lot more comfortable with a solid recommendation.


...He might be surpassing Paul. MAYBE. I just identify with him a lot, I think.
barkinmad: (Slingshot Mojo)
Pretty much life hates me because I was halfway through writing up Sunday (after writing ALL of Saturday) and through some mishap I delete the entire entry. LJ chooses then to autosave. So basically, I'm screwed and I'm gonna have to write up a not-so-awesome second draft which I hate doing since it's never as good as the first.

Also, I've been putting off making updates because I wanted to write about Comic Con first, but I guess that's not going to happen. So? Pimpage. Pimpage all the way.

In the past week I have joined:
[livejournal.com profile] whedonland (I haven't been sorted yet, but hopefully I'll be an Active.)
[livejournal.com profile] wholand (Go Team UNIT! There are five members on our team, all the others have at least ten. FML.)

I'm also considering [livejournal.com profile] spnland but I'm not sure.

Also, welcome to....holy shit there are a lot of you guys. Um, the Deanbottoms crew, I guess? Roam free, my pets. You have entered a land of crack.

Be prepared for memes.

P.S. And please please PLEASE if you have any songs to contribute, post them to [livejournal.com profile] lookbacksongs. I REALLY don't want that comm to die because it could potentially be my happy place.

P.S.S. Seriously, you guys, any suggestions for movie comms?
barkinmad: (11 Is In)
So, do you guys want my write-up of Comic-Con first or the pictures? Because there are a LOT of pictures, and to save you guys all from bandwith hell I might just split those up into two posts (one with celebrities, one without). You can already get my experience of the first day over at [livejournal.com profile] ibroketuesday's journal. The only things I did not do with those two was going to the TRS panel (EEEEEEEE! I know I'm the only one on my flish who cares, but I WILL SQUEE GODDAMMIT) and going to the Doctor Who panel instead of the Supernatural one. I HAS AMAZING SPOILERS THAT YOU'VE PROBABLY ALREADY HEARD. I do however have an awesome, awesome Heroes panel story so maybe I'll just pick and choose my favorite moments. I don't know, I've never done this before!

Keep in mind that all my photos of celebrities are both ridiculous and well-shot (IISM).
barkinmad: (Jakey)
Well, I'm totally dressing up like Luna Lovegood tonight and acting the idiot. It shouldn't be that hard XD I'm pretty excited but I know that my costume is going to suck and I'm not totally sure what the plans are. I see silly pictures in my future.

Speaking of the plans, are any of you DW peeps out there going to Comic-Con? Any of you camping out? I'm trying to gauge if a) I will have to camp out in order to see the panel and b) if any of you would mind camping out with me if that happens? I'm generally going to be with [livejournal.com profile] cookie_simone and [livejournal.com profile] ibroketuesday but they're not going to that panel so IDK if what I'm going to do. Also, there's a late TRS panel that I'm DYING to go to but that's neither here nor there since I can't really do anything about it until we get there.

I'm not sure if I want The Beatles to beat out Dylan and Sinatra on last.fm :/ Speaking of, I finally got my iPod (it's silver!) and a hot pink metal cover and it's awesome awesome awesome. I'm so glad I have my music back with me. As sad as it is, it was hard to leave the house because I'd always want to listen to music.

500 Days of Summer on Friday! BEST MOVIE WEEK EVER.

I should probably sleep and stuff since I'm going to be up all night. Although I'm far too experienced at that.

THE (✔)-(✖) MEME // my thread


The chances of me spamming you guys today: high. The chances of you caring enough to read: low. Just giving you a heads up!

Also, as long as I'm pimping myself, remember [livejournal.com profile] sitrow? That whole writing journal thing? Yeah, that's updated. And might be updated again later today if I decide that what I wrote at 4 in the morning is worth reading.

GUESS WHO DIDN'T SLEEP AGAIN.

My Current Top 20 Beatles Songs

I Didn't Include Covers Or Else I'd Be Dead )

Funny story: This morning I was walking with my mom and I got her talking about her 20 favorites, and then I got home and started on my Dad on his. My dad was less successful but my mom wrote down her Top and now I'm making a mix CD. We overlap quite a bit which is funny since my dad's favorite is Fool On the Hill and that one barely registered to me. Also, my parents have a friend coming over tonight who is apparently way into the Beatles, so maybe I can get more of an interesting conversation out of him.

Okay, now I REALLY need a Beatles icon, but I don't want to give any of mine up D:

Would anyone be interested in Let It Be...Naked? I think it's the reason I have so many songs from that album up there. Never mind I uploaded it, and you all better damn enjoy it because it's fantastic.

A lot of my ideas in this post were stolen from [livejournal.com profile] bornbackwards. In fact, ALL of the ideas, from the Top 20 to the cute little note song link icons. Sorry Sheena that I'm such a dirty thief!

THE TESTIMONIALS OF AWESOME MEME! // ME!!


I supposed my userinfo could use a bit of sprucing up...

Oh, and I'm also at tumblr now. In case you wanted to follow me or something.
barkinmad: (Un-Quo Status)
1. My iPod is still missing. Sadness D:

2. I think my alarm clock doesn't want me to ever go to Brit. Lit. Even I'm getting sick of the excuse.

3. I'm not undoing the braid in my hair until I get it dyed. I hope my friend likes green because that's the color I had to buy in order to get bleach. I didn't really trust the color removal stuff. Plus, it was more expensive.

4. Digg it:

The Most Intense Website Intro Ever


I still think the comments are the most hilarious part of it. It's energy for god! GODERGY!
Anyone else on Digg? I'm all lonely.

ETA: I was excited enough when they played "A Well Respected Man" on SPN, since I was barely aware anyone but me listened to it, but then I go to Walgreens and they play it over the loudspeaker? Awesome. Kinda.
barkinmad: (Mr. A-Z)
I'm in the computer lab right now because they're doing the room lottery upstairs and it's taking forever and I'm probably not going to get a room I like. ALSO, this means that I will probably be spending most of my time away from my iTunes at home, so I'm going to ask you, my wonderful flist, a favor.

Will you make tomorrow's playlist for me? I'm going to randomly decide now that the word is "sacrifice", so if you know of any songs that you think really represent this word, or are in the vein of the word, or just kinda have the word in the title, please post! I think it'll be awesome if I get to play a whole show of songs my friends picked.

Totally voluntary, of course.
barkinmad: (Josie & the P's)
Could you guys recommend songs that would be relatively easy to learn on guitar? I feel like there are so many out there, but I can't think of any when I want to. You guys know I have lots of musical tastes outside Jason Mraz, right?
barkinmad: (Tie Me Up)
I haven't heard anything but good vibes from people on my flish about the new Doctor. I won't say it out loud or anything since I'm too lazy to cut and I don't want to spoil anyone (which, why are you on the internet? There's a YEAR before he becomes the eleventh, you think you're going to avoid that information until 2010? Whatever. I'm totally a spoilerphobe, so I know where you're coming from). But basically, I'm willing to give this guy a chance, simply because I had to give the same chance to every Doctor I've seen so far. I gave Eccleston a chance, and now thanks to him I'm totally enraptured with Troughton. And yes, I'm probably going to laugh my ass off about his hair and how "emo" he looks, or whatever, but that's all part of the joy of the show. It's what CAPS are for! This guy might not be our favorite doctor (or maybe he will be, who the hell knows?) but I believe that the guys in charge know what they're doing, and from clips he looks like he can totally pull it off.

I know I'm pretty much just reiterating everything everyone on my flish has already said, but I felt like I needed to say it too.

Now, where can I find all these icons everyone already has?

I'm so far behind it's beyond ridiculous. Sorry guys, school kind of just took over my life.

In other news, F MAJOR CAN GO DIE IN A FIERY DEATH BECAUSE THERE'S NO WAY I CAN GET MY LITTLE FINGER TO PRESS DOWN ON THOSE TWO CHORDS WHILE MY OTHERS ARE PRESSING DOWN AS WELL. IT JUST WILL. NOT. WORK.

LA LA LA LA I'M GOING TO NEW YORK TOMORROW, AND THE SQUEAN/BEEGEE WILL BE EPIC FOR ALL ETERNITY.

To celebrate my very recent decision to go Party Friends Only (I'm gonna go back and re-lock a bunch of entries), I decided to host my very own friending meme! I'm seriously not expecting much, but I love my flish so much that I want my journal to be as much of a (friendly) orgy as possible!
Go at it!
