In my efforts to cheer myself up after about sixty really depressing/draining season/series finales and the mothertrucking Mancs winning another goddamn title, have some random things that make me happy!
1. I think all the Lost
characters who were left on the island most likely formed an ABBA cover band at the Dharma Farma - before ABBA had even really reached the height of their popularity. This is like Bret and Jemaine going back in time and giving David Bowie his own songbook before he even wrote the songs. And also Hurley rewriting Empire Strikes Back
, obviously. Anyway, this is clearly the best idea I have ever had and I will let the Lost
writers know about it tout de suite. I told thehangedwoman
all of this but she wasn't listening. :/"Lay All Your Love On Me"
= the anthem of Sawyer and Juliet's love"Does Your Mother Know?"
= Richard Alpert's serenade to young!Ben when he ~took his innocence~"Dancing Queen"
= a scene where Miles is reluctantly forced to play the tambourine and Juliet plays the Casio Electric keyboard For Love but she grimaces through the whole thing"Mamma Mia!"
= clearly Sawyer's conflicted reaction to the Oceanic 6 - Jack or Kate, take your slash/het pick
Clearly this is a brilliant plan concocted by LAFLEUR to get them to blend in better. Just imagine trying to convince Miles to get into one of those suits. Jin on guitar! Confession: this all stems from my desire to see a Lost
musical. I feel like it would work out a lot of people's issues. I only wish that Hurley and Sayid had been there to be conscripted into the singing ranks.
2. You know the Crossroads Demon on Supernatural
? How long do those contracts last until the hell hounds come calling to collect their end of the deal? 'Cause I feel like Fergie's time has GOT to be up soon. Isn't it twenty years? Hmmm, it'll be close to twenty years soon since Fergie started really winning things with the Mancs.
Look, I'm just throwing thoughts out there okay?
3. Band of Brothers
is pretty enjoyable, even though I'm not a big fan of dramatized war-related media - I prefer it in Ken Burns documentary form. I do find World War II more interesting to study than most wars (probably because it's so recent and, like most people who live in the "world" of WWII, I had a lot of relatives involved in it; to be honest, I think my father's side of the family may have barely escaped fighting for
the Germans instead of against them if we'd emigrated a bit later), and BoB is a fantastic work in its own right. I mean, the coloring alone stuns me so much sometimes that I forget I'm watching a violent battle. I have trouble following the plot sometimes because I really don't know shit about the military or warfare. I tend to zone out during those parts of basically anything and just show up when people start talking again. But I figure if I could understand enough of Generation Kill
to get the general plot, I can definitely
get through this. Also, Damien Lewis is breathtakingly beautiful
. There is just no other word to describe that man, and I don't know how I didn't see it before.
4. Eric Northman. Let's have a lot of sex.
5. This picture.
6. Star Trek
and Fast & Furious
, both of which I saw this week and both of which brought the Awesome and the Gay in spades.
