In my efforts to be less obsessive about my grades, I am putting off studying for my Late Roman History midterm until tomorrow morning! Bah, take that, uh, self! (Okay, so I may have already studied for a few hours yesterday, just let me have this, please.)

So instead I am doing that meme where you give me a fandom and/or pairing and/or character and I spew feelings about them. I stole it from that strange wilderness that is tumblr, which still sometimes confuses me a lot because I am old and set in my ways.

Please help me not do schoolwork. It makes my mama proud. Seriously, I call her and say, "I'm not studying, but instead drinking!" and she congratulates me because I study too much.

Thanks so much to the anon who sent me the shiny dragon! \o/

Stolen from [ profile] sparky77, because I love to ramble about my feelings about fictional (or RPF!) characters.

Name a fandom and I will tell you:
1. The character I first fell in love with
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
5. The character I used to love but don’t any longer
6. The character I would totally smooch
7. The character I’d want to be like
8. The character I’d tell off
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

You're now a timelord. The 41st gif in your folder is your companion. The 17th gif is your arch enemy.

cutting this to save your flist because there are a million of these popping up )

Oh my god, you guys. Apparently I'm the timelord who does ALL THE DRUGS. How am I supposed to fight stoned, adorable Beatles with stoned, adorable Harry Potter though? Can't we all just love each other in our psychedelic TARDIS?
sarkastic: (oz - b/k my resistance giving away)
1. Wait, you guys. Is the new adaptation of The Great Gatsby (a book I deeply loathe) seriously going to be in 3D? I just. What. Why. This is like the most perfectly hilarious yet kind of sad culmination of the ridiculous levels of 3D overuse that is kind of ruining mainstream film for me today. Just... why? What kind of audience are they going to attract who would want to see this story in 3D? Are they going to intersperse it with scenes of alien attacks? The American Dream is killed.... BY INVADERS FROM OUTER SPACE!!!!! But seriously, I am so tired of every. single. film being released in 3D, especially since pretty much everything but Avatar and B-horror films are barely even altered in 3D. It just gives me a headache and makes stuff kind of blurry. YOU WILL NOT GET MY EXTRA THREE DOLLARS, FILM INDUSTRY. Unless you stop making such shit movies.

2. I'd forgotten how at the end of LotR, Sam is all sadface because his Frodo wants him to move in with him (OF COURSE THAT'S JUST NORMAL) but he wants to marry Rosie Cotton. And Frodo's like, "Well, duh! We'll just all move in together! That's just normal!" LOL WHAT. Okay, hobbit ménage à trois. That's cool.

Also, I was wondering: is there any good Faramir/Eowyn fic out there? I'll be honest, LotR fandom kind of scares me. But even though these two get a whole half a chapter, I WANT MORE.

3. And now for a meme! Leave the name of a character/person from a fandom you know I'm in, and I will tell you:

* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character -
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.
sarkastic: (heroes - petrelli you fit right into me)
Ugh, it's that horrific time of year: my school's big party weekend. Sigh. Just... sigh.

Anyway, here's a meme that's been making the rounds, about your feelings on fandom tropes.

I talk too much )

Name a fandom that I am familiar with and I will tell you:

My endgame OTP:
My original OTP:

My anti-OTP:

Yaaaaaay. Lists of things. :D
sarkastic: (misc - cymru)
1. I have to admit that I'm kind of embarassingly excited about the latest Fast and the Furious sequel, hilariously titled Fast Five (trailer here). But, as I found myself watching 2 Fast 2 Furious on New Year's Day, I think I came to somewhat accept the fact that these terrible, terrible movies are my guilty pleasure of choice. Few things have tried so hard to be heterosexual and failed so spectacularly. Also, I really enjoyed the implication in 2F2F that Dom had been "tapping" Brian and Brian had fallen in love with him. This by the agents comparing Eva Mendes' situation to Brian's in the first movie and everyone just being like, "Yep, Eva Mendes sleeping with the bad guy to get in his good graces is basically the same as what Brian did." Oh. Okay.

Also sometimes I think that I think about these movies more than anyone really should. 0_o

2. I'm kind of super geeky excited about the new IU Cinema that's opening this semester. So much stuff I want to see! And it's only a baby now, so it will only get better with time. Yaaay! I'm so excited to return to IU and take advantage of all the free/ridiculously cheap stuff there again. I missed it while in an insanely expensive city like Vienna.

3. I decided to start rereading the HP books in preparation for the death of my childhood in the form of HP7 Pt. 2. The first two books are a bit difficult to get through, even though I enjoy all the backstory we get in CoS. I really enjoyed the first instance of VOLDEMORT KILLED MY PARENTS!!!!! as an excuse for any and all behavior from Harry. And, god, the mistreatment of Slytherins is really getting to me this reread. What do you expect to happen to a bunch of kids who you treat as if they're already criminals? Truly SHOCKING that they wouldn't idolize Dumbledore when he takes away their House Cup in the cruelest way possible. DUDE. Not cool. But don't take all this bitching to mean I don't still love them.

4. And now I think I'm going to have to do that end of the year meme, for therapeutic purposes. 2010 meme )

Shameless self-pimping. :D

Firstly, some non-football business: What are your favorite baking/cooking blogs or websites? I've recently started attempting to delve into the kitchen, and I've found that food blogs are generally a lot safer a bet than cookbooks, since you can learn from others' mistakes. I'd love to know some of your favorite sites.

Now back to football. I think the first round games have proven something pretty clearly: speak German, win awesome games. Okay, I realize Swiss German is barely recognizable as a form of German BUT STILL. If Austria were in this World Cup they'd probably have beaten Brazil. I'm not even gonna pretend I didn't clap gleefully when that game was over. I am not that nice of a person. I hardly think Spain's dreams are over, but they have made it quite difficult on themselves, especially as I heard that Chile were pretty good although I did not watch them. I can't say I was incredibly blown away by Brazil either. A few moments of brilliance mostly overshadowed by mediocrity. In my of course totally unbiased opinion, I still think Germany put out the best performance in the first round by far.

days 5 and 6 - favorite domestic league and whatever )
sarkastic: (foot - walk on through the rain)
Want some really hot pictures of the US men's NT half-naked, sweaty, and dirty? Hmmm, that's what I thought. They are here. I suddenly feel very patriotic... IN MY PANTS.

I woke up early to watch Denmark play... and then went back to sleep when it became clear that they weren't going to do much. Although I think de Jong should've AT LEAST gotten a yellow for that challenge on Bendtner. He could've broken his freaking ankle! The way these refs have been calling games, he should've been on a plane home. I couldn't watch the Italy game because you know how I feel about Italy? It's pretty much this.

Day 04 — Your favorite club team

Sigh. You know, after Euro 2008 when I first got into club football, there was nothing that made me choose Liverpool. The choice that makes the most sense for a diehard Germany fan and (then) big Michael Ballack fan was Chelsea, right? And it's true that most German NT fans I know (though not all, obviously) follow Chelsea if they follow any English team (although now there are NO international Germans in England, so IDK). So I don't know what it was about Liverpool that made me fall for them. That 08-09 season was glorious, though, wasn't it? They were all so happy and full of spirit and determination - they embodied the spirit of Liverpool FC. It was difficult not to be drawn in by that team. And then it all went to shit and continues this summer to flow in that general direction. But it's gone to shit before, and it's come back to be amazing again. I've been through much worse with other teams I love. The Chicago White Sox won the World Series in 1906, 1917, ....and then never again until 2005. I have no doubt that Liverpool FC, no matter how long it takes, will always shine on.

SHIT GUYS I'M GETTING MAUDLIN. But, seriously, I think I've come to some kind of peace about transfers. We know half the team is going to jump ship this summer. And it's going to suck. But.... Liverpool FC is so much bigger than any one player, than any eleven players. It's gonna be okay. GROUP HUGS AND POPSICLES ALL AROUND. You know when I think you know you're a real Liverpool fan? When you sing YNWA and you feel that physical ache in your chest of sheer pride and love and joy. Nothing can hurt us when we're singing that.

the rest of the days )
sarkastic: (foot - star-spangled motherfuckers)
Greece vs. South Korea )

Argentina vs. Nigeria )

USA vs. England )

Serbia vs. Ghana )

I have yet to see any team play very impressive football. Mostly it's been unorganized, blunt, and ugly. Not entirely unexpected when not only is everyone having first-game nerves, they're also poorly matched to the skill level of their opponent. I'm hoping the next round of games will provide some more interesting stuff. But I think more African teams should score more goals, because they have AWESOME goal celebrations.

days 2 and 3 of the football meme )

And now, decked out in my sadly obsolete Frings jersey, I will begin to prepare myself for the Germany game. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. OMG KLINSI IS ON MY TV! ♥_♥
sarkastic: (foot - pepe with child)
Heeeeeeeey, livejournal. HOW AWESOME IS TODAY, THIS DAY OF DAYS? Well, the South Africa vs. Mexico game was awesome. The South African goal celebration was too adorable for words. And Desmond Tutu continues to be THE MOST ADORABLE MAN IN EXISTENCE I CAN'T EVEN. I was pleased to discover that my hottie for SA, Itumeleng Khune, turned out to be a pretty skilled goalkeeper as well. Well done, sir! The France vs. Uruguay game on the other hand? God, way to put people to sleep two games into the tournament. Not that I expected much from that matchup. Gives me hope that South Africa will be able to get enough points to go onto the Round of 16, though.

ANYWHO. Since I totally copped out on that Lost 30 days meme, I decided instead to do a football 30 days meme. Only one did not exist! So I ~created~ it. Memes have to come from somewhere right? OR ARE THEY GOD?!?! ... Hmmm. Probably. Well, you can tell I'm a little hyper today. Anyway, maybe I'll actually finish this one because it fits nicely with the World Cup... being 31 days and all. One day off. Oh well.

Day 01 — Your favorite active footballer

Pepe Reina is my perfect man. He's hilarious, genuine in a world of ass-covering bullshit, extremely talented at what he does, intelligent, exceedingly loyal, and loves his baby girls. When I was suffering through the last season at Liverpool, Pepe was the one person I could always rely on to perform well and actually show up in spirit rather just body. As we're bombarded with rumors of Stevie and Nando jumping ship the second shit got tough, the presence of Pepe calms me. He's without a doubt one of the most talented goalkeepers in the world. I would go so far as to say The Best, but I admit my bias. I really do hope there will come a day where he gets to be Spain's #1, because no one deserves it more.

PSA: You can download Weezer's inspirational Team USA power ballad that sounds like "I Just Died in Your Arms Tonight" at the beginning, for free from iTunes. It's called "Represent". That's what we do in the US.
sarkastic: (lost - james a real nowhere man)
Day 02 — Your favorite episode

The Constant

So unoriginal of me, I know. But it's one of everyone's favorite episodes for a reason, and that's because it's Lost at its best: mixing a fantastic character study with brilliant island mythology. This episode especially worked in a season where the timelines were all jumbled to hell anyway. DESMOND AND PENNY. I find it hilarious that the (romantic) relationships I cared about most on this show (Desmond/Penny and Sawyer/Juliet) were the ones given the smallest amounts of screentime. As compared to the Jack/Kate/Sawyer triangle, which was in practically every episode until S6, and which almost always bored me to tears.

rest of the days )
sarkastic: (lost - des the man of twists and turns)
I'm doing the Lost 30 Days meme, because, like [ profile] fledmusic who I stole this from, it's all I think about right now anyway!

Day 01 — Your favorite quote(s)

Faraday: I think Eloise's brain short-circuited. The jumps between the present and the future eventually, she eventually, she couldn't tell which was which. She had no anchor.
Desmond: What do you mean, "anchor"?
Faraday: Something familiar in both times. All this, see all this is all variables. It's random; it's chaotic. Every equation needs stability, something known. It's called a "constant." Desmond, you have no constant. When you go to the future nothing there is familiar. So if you want to stop this, then you need to find something there, something that you really, really care about, something that also exists back here in 1996.
Desmond: This constant, can it be a person?

Desmond: Can you get me some clothes?
Hurley: What happened to yours?
Desmond: I woke up in the jungle like this.
Hurley: So, like, the hatch blew off your underwear?

"I'll see you in another life, brother."

I am officially finished with my second year of college. I'm happy that I'm done and can now commence the Summer of Laziness, but at the same time I'm halfway done with college. Noooooo. DNW the real world.

And now that meme where you answer questions people give you. If you want some questions, I would be happy to serve you in this fashion. My questions were from [ profile] typicrobots, so you know they're happenin'.

questions )

Also: the cast of Oz is awesome, bros around. Beecher, Keller, O'Reilly, and Said beautifully reunited. Also McManus but let's be honest with what we care about, people.
sarkastic: (oz - beecher nobody's bitch)
1. I'm thinking for my semester in Vienna, I'm going to leave a week or so before I need to be in Vienna and meet up with a few friends of mine who will be in Germany... somewhere. Possibly Nürnberg or Berlin. Wherever they are then. I figure this will give me time to a) get over my jetlag before I have to deal with school and moving into a new place and meeting tons of new people b) give me time to get used to being in a German-speaking country and c) give me time to hang out in Germany with my friends, obvs. The only problem is I would have to carry around all my luggage wherever we went unless I can find somewhere to store it. But I'm sure I could figure something out.

Also, I signed up for a nine day trip to Prague, Budapest, and Krakow, so hopefully I signed up early enough to get a spot! Eeeeeeee! \o/

2. I think my problem with Supernatural this season is that it's taking the apocalypse - and itself- way, way too seriously. I was raised on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, okay? I need people to crack a joke once every two episodes instead of constant jaw-clenching and single tears and self-loathing and total despair and hopelessness. I feel like I'm in an episode of Oz up in here! Dean deals with his pain by being a drunk manwhore and Castiel is his religious friend who .... well, disapproved at some point. Lucifer is O'Reily, obvs, and the angels are the corrupt guards. Not sure that Sam could really pull off Keller though. Needs more crazy. And at the end of the episode you're like, who the fuck is still letting these people run this place? How have the guards/angels not been fired yet with all these dead people? I really wondered how it was possible that Glynn and McManus kept their jobs for as long as they did. There were like three deaths every episode, on a good day. And usually ALL in the small population of Em City.

.... Because Oz is obviously a show where everything makes logical sense.

3. I saw Invictus, which is yet another movie in the strong tradition of ~Sports Bring People Together Across Racial Barriers~ but without the fun singing and dancing in Remember the Titans. And, wow, are South African accents really that weird or did Matt Damon just have a really bad one? In any case, it made me really excited for the World Cup. Uh, of football. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS SHIT PEOPLE. I'm going to have to get some kind of night job because I can't miss the matches. From June 11 to July 11, FOOTBALL TAKES OVER MY LIFE. My family should consider themselves lucky that there aren't any games on July 4th this year so they won't have to deal with me sobbing at the family cookout.

sarkastic: (co - let's go film the sex scene)
Hey, guys, want to ask me random questions to combat my boredom*? And if you have one of these lovely Montenegrin accounts, let me know and I will interrogate you with some hard-hitting stuff.

You could ask me things like: Peggy, how did you live so long without having Community in your life? Because I have just discovered it recently and omfg can I have the next episode please I love every second and every character and I cry laughing ahhhhhhhhhhhh. Pretty much.

*Since it has suddenly decided to snow LIKE CRAZY in southern Indiana in February. This is some northern Indiana shit. I am not supposed to need the giant chimney sweep broom that I had to use to clean my car off five times in one week at home.
