Here has been my method lately of going through the [ profile] inception_kink comments.

"Ooooh, 44 seems like a nice number, let's look at that page!"

Which is to say, there is no method at all.

Also, [ profile] fire_at_wi11 directed me towards this LOVELY PHOTO which is under a cut for sanity's sake. )

I have recently discovered two awesome things. The first is thanks to Tumblr, since I saw a picture of Martin Freeman on what was obviously a British quiz show, but I'd never seen it before. After some sleuthing, I found that it was called "What You Were Watching" or something similar, and it's FANTASTIC. So funny. But I suppose it does depend on the panel, much like many other British quiz shows.

The other thing sprang from THAT show, because the basic premise is that they review absolutely awful TV and then make fun of it (OMG MY FAVORITE ACTIVITY) and they talked about this show called "Young, Dumb and Living Off Mum." Yeah, you know about my ban against reality shows? This is an exception. Because, it's just like, it's a total trainwreck to watch, but it's done in such a way that you know the contestants are trying and some of them actually have redeeming qualities (well, okay, one). So that's basically what I've been watching today. Good stuff.

I didn't get to see Scott Pilgrim like originally planned, but I might be able to go see it once I get back to school. Two of my friends are in New York (by the way, WTF? I haven't seen one of them in over six months, and they didn't even tell me about their meeting up?) and were planning on seeing it with another friend right before school. So they might have already seen it by the time I get there, which would suck because I hate going to see a movie that I know will be a huge group thing with people who have already seen it. But, you know, at least I'll get to see it.

UMMMMMMMM nothing else, I suppose.
barkinmad: (Isn't She?)
The highlight of my day was walking down to Ben & Jerry's, getting free fro-yo from my friend who works there, and watching her close up shop.

Which, you know, wasn't so bad.

Movies I Watched Or Started Watching Today:
Bonnie & Clyde (Warren Beatty is a FUCKING DREAMBOAT, guys. How did I not know about him before? Just GUH, I mean...I watch for the plot.)
Sherlock Holmes (Because I currently don't own any of Doyle's books, and you know, research for the murder mystery, and one can never have enough Sherlock, and did I mention how awesome that movie is?)
An Affair to Remember (Cary Grant - YAAAAAY!, The Plot -, sure?)
barkinmad: (Brothers on a Hotel Bed)
have you started season 4?
oh fuck
is that an angel like really
seriously guys
fuck that
he grows on you
but seriously
like the show wasn't satisfied with heavy handed metaphor
it needed a motherfucking angel

I feel like I should just keep her around to be my fandom voice.

I have claimed a prompt at [ 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: (Well Duh)
Amelia: Ahh that ep was so good though.
Amelia: Ahh when is next.
Me: Ummmmm
Amelia: I can't take it.
Me: ....
Amelia: There isn't any more is there?
Me: .....

Yeah, so, that meme failed. But oh well! Guess what's gonna happen next?

I am opening up to a bunch of questions that I will answer this week, since it's going to be spring break, I'm stuck on campus and I just watched a bunch of my old videos on youtube. Also, procrastination. This almost 100% guarantees that I will get around to making a video of me answering your questions at some point this week. Ask me anything! Seriously.

Have at it!

(P.S. This is open to tumblr people as well! Just submit a question and say whether you want it to be in the video or not!)
barkinmad: (The Monkees)
This is an interesting story about how I'm totally insane.

Recently, I discovered.... )

P.S. I'm taking a German film class and there are a bunch of people I'm friends with taking it with me. There are six of us and our collective identities include: German history nerds, culture whores/film enthusiasts, Jewish or about-to-be Jewish people, snarky commenters. There is quite a bit of overlap and we all sat in a little group at the back of the class. We watched a movie tonight that dealt with a refugee WWII Jewish family. I'm pretty sure everyone else in the class hated us.

Still creeps into my mind now and then, even today.

ETA: Oh great. Episode 11 of Middleman is apparently infested with OSDW references, so now I have to watch it.

ETA 2: I've decided. I'm not crazy about this show as a college student, but I'm forcing my kids to watch it.
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 [ 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:
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:
[ profile] whedonland (I haven't been sorted yet, but hopefully I'll be an Active.)
[ profile] wholand (Go Team UNIT! There are five members on our team, all the others have at least ten. FML.)

I'm also considering [ 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 [ 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: (Topher)
I have little to no idea how to do this properly, but I'm going to try to mix stories, panels and pictures while NOT stabbing your bandwidth in the eyes with a pair of tweezers. I have LOTS of photos, but I'm going to save the secondary ones for the next post. Onwards!

Thursday )

Friday )
An appropriate end to Friday! I'm probably going to, you know, sleep, and then post Saturday and Sunday which includes:

Doctor Who
Being Human

So you know, everything awesome in the world.

Please don't take our photos without credit. Tues, Cookie and I traded off taking photos and we wouldn't want all our hard work to go unnoticed :/ At least tag this journal.
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 [ 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: (Quite Amused)
I just redid my layout and it's AMAZING! I love it so much because it's pink, and dotty, and very me. I am very happy, and therefore grateful to [ profile] thefulcrum.

Speaking of layouts made from [ profile] thefulcrum (DYCWIDT?) I have a new comm! Yaaaaay! [ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs
[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs
[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs[ profile] lookbacksongs
Go! Join! Participate! I really, really want this comm to do well so please pimp it out to all your friends! Mostly so I can get my Gigi soundtrack Because I believe that everyone either has an interest in old music or would if they had access to it. Or not, whatever, but PLEASE JOIN, OKAY?! Okay.

I know I have yet to give my opinion on anything I've seen in the last week (Harry Potter and 500 Days of Summer). I do have photos and such and some video, but I don't want to put any other video on YouTube aside from this one:

Um anything else you cool cats want to know about? I decided that I'm not going to "500 Days of Summer" again tonight not because I don't want to but because this is one of my last chances to eat some delicious Thai food from one of my favorite restaurants. And then we'll probably watch Annie Hall or something else that I found on VHS last night. There are LOTS of good movies that I have on VHS but don't have on DVD.

I need to write fic or something. I wrote a little original drabble and will probably post it at [ profile] sitrow but I'm not 100% happy with it since I feel like it's covered ground. Maybe my Intro. to Creative Writing class next semester will help me get my gears turning again. Or...IDK what will happen.
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 [ profile] cookie_simone and [ 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 :/ 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.

• Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.

• NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.

• They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.

• You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

I totally broke the rule and have thirteen. Because I never shut up. I don't like that number, but whatever.

I'm including my photography because it's basically the only photos I have )

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 [ 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.

barkinmad: (Default)
I have a Dreamwidth account! Friend me! I'm barkinmad over there too because I'm so uncreative.

Meme time!

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload or link to) 5 songs that begin with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

[ profile] killmotion assigned me the letter 'T'.

5 songs that start with the letter T...and 22 of their closest friends! )

Alright, so in the spirit of my Summer Cleaning-ness, I did a small friends cut. I felt like it was becoming a chore to read my flish and I really want to get to know people better instead of just flitting around all the time. This way I can keep my small community feel. If you don't think you would've been cut, you probably weren't, and if you think that we should give it another try, leave a comment and I'll be happy to add you back.

Now I'm going to bed because I'm sitting in a dark kitchen with my back to huge windows and doors.
barkinmad: (Failure)
I now have two copies of King Lear and Henry the VI instead of Henry the IV. *FAIL*

Have been rearranging and reorganizing furniture with my roommate all day, and tonight I'm probably going to watch a movie. The downside about tomorrow is that my class (the first class of the semester, mind you) goes RIGHT through the inauguration. I'm hoping that my professor is kind-hearted and lets us watch because, seriously, it's Obama and I want to watch with a group of people instead of sitting by myself in front of a computer screen like I watch everything else.

Speaking of this:

GO WATCH HUGH LAURIE ON JAY LENO. Even if you're not a House fan (I'm not either, really, but I do love Hugh Laurie), Band from TV is the musical guest and IT'S SO. AWESOME. Really, Grunny is SO INTO IT and screaming "Yeah! Come on!" and rockin' out on the drums, and Jesse Spencer is playing the electric violin and Hugh Laurie is on the piano and Adrian Pasdar is on guitar, but he's like, playing it cool and not moving his fingers much and only joining in on the end of every sentence. IDK maybe he was drunk. Wouldn't surprise me. But I don't care 'cause it's AWESOME! WATCH IT!
barkinmad: (Teapot)
The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me. It will be about or tailored to those five lucky "victims."

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- what I create will be just for you.
- it'll be done this year
- you have no clue what it's going to be. It may be fic. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you!

Let me know if you live with your parents or some other loser who doesn't want weird ass shit sent to your place without a disguise.

Okay, it's very hard to concentrate on the scene when one of my favorite Bugs Bunny cartoons is playing in the background. And what's with the opera theme anyway?

Also, Vogon poetry!!!

My second season of Drake & Josh finally finished, and I'm also trying to watch Bye, Bye, Birdie, but Rosie has refused so I'm going to have to find the time at night when she's asleep to watch it. I'm also trying to catch up on HIMYM, but Mediafire is being a little bitch, and in an attempt to reboot my QI download, I inadvertently got rid of 50%+ files, which sucks a lot because downloading is very slow right now. The estimated remaining time is 3 days, sometimes 7, sometimes 25. Catching up is hard to do....


P.S.S. I found a funny new cute comic! It's called Girls with Slingshots. Check out one of my favorite strips:

ETA: Favorite quote of the night is - "I have the sneaking suspicion that we're lame."
