I'll just be over here in a corner, dying happily.
sarkastic: (sn - castiel oh me of little faith)
I've been sort of flitting around SPN fandom lately, and I noticed that a lot of people are highly displeased with this season re: Sam and the Sam&Dean relationship.

my tl;dr thoughts on season four of supernatural )

Also, I'm curious: am I the only one who sees parallels between Castiel and Battlestar Galactica's Leoben? It's not an exact fit, but they remind me of each other especially in their obsessions with certain rather reluctant, self-destructive people who they're convinced are going to save the world/humanity. And they've both had their faith shaken because of, in part, their sticking around Kara/Dean. Although I imagine if they were ever to meet it would be incredibly unproductive, as they'd just spend the entire time staring intensely at each other. It'd be like a game of Holy Chicken.

ETA: Comments contain vague-ish spoilers for the S4.5 of BSG. Just to be careful.
sarkastic: (bsg - leoben to know madness)
Argh, just as I finally got through S2 of Battlestar Galactica, the crappy library copies of my DVD gave out. And it froze on Kara and Leoben in the House of Psychotic Domesticity, no less! Like it was laughing at me for actually rewatching "Black Market." I have to wonder what people do to these DVDs. But - no. No. Number one rule of working at a library: Never, under any circumstances, wonder what those weird smudges are. There is only so much antibacterial soap behind the desk.

I was going to wait to post my tl;dr thoughts about the series until I'd gotten through more of it, but I am kind of bereft and lost without 24/7 BSG. So, some people I still love (Kara!), some people now make me roll my eyes a lot (Lee), and some people I appreciate way more than I did the first time around (Samuel T. Anders!). Proceed to my thoughts, this time with 100% more bullet lists.

spoilers up to all aired episodes of bsg )

Waaaaaay too excited about seeing CKR on the big screen on Friday.
sarkastic: (bsg - leoben look up)
In my rewatch of Battlestar Galactica, I have unfortunately just finished "Pegasus." I don't think that will ever stop being the most horrifying thing I've ever seen in a television series. It still makes me physically ill, to see Sharon pull those blankets over her while she sobs, to see that broken Six. I can honestly say that is the only time in this entire series that I have taken Gaius Baltar seriously, and I think that says it all.

Hug time now?

1. I stayed up into the wee hours of the night yesterday talking BSG OT3 with [livejournal.com profile] transtempts. I'm still surprised at how much the idea of Kara/Sam/Leoben just makes me GRIN like a dork. Maybe it's just in our twisted minds, but they work. Being domestic and putting up cabinets and getting into barfights because Leoben never loses at cards and all. My favorite cap in the world, let me show it to you. Have I mentioned how "Faith" is probably my favorite episode of S4 of BSG? Just throw some cylons and some humans together into closed quarters and watch what happens. Guaranteed good times.

2. I'm so glad you all enjoyed my cracktastic guide to gay soaps! Warms the cockles of my heart. But I feel I owe at least a small addendum to some couples I overlooked. The first one being John Paul/Kieron, who I finally got around to watching and who are painfully adorable (though not as much as Christian and Olli). You can find their story (including some Craig angst) starting here. I mean, just watch this scene starting at 3:00 and tell me if that's not one of the sweetest things you've ever seen, meant as a blatant counterpoint to the nasty voice-over. Nuzzling!

The other couple is Max/Iago from El Cor de la Ciutat, a Catalan soap, pointed out to me by [livejournal.com profile] verasophia. I haven't watched too much of them yet, but their first kiss has me hooked. LOL *WINK*!

3. I'm still working on my Nationalmannschaft picspam, but I have to picspam my other Germans. Did you see the latest episode of Verbotene Liebe? I mean they had a swimsuit photoshoot complete with Zoolander Blue Steel faces and, inexplicably, cowboy hats. I am for any excuse to get Christian, Olli, and Gregor shirtless, even ones as tenuous as this.

verbotene liebe 7/11/08 picspam )

4. I rewatched Batman Begins to prepare for the new movie, and all I could think of during the training montages where Liam Neeson was saying some cryptic shit about fear opium, was "But can you do it..... WITH WATERMELONS ON YOUR FEET?!" from Mystery Men. Which kind of ruined the ~*atmosphere*~. Whatever, Tony Stark needs to take Bruce Wayne out for drinks, sleep with him, and make him less broody all the time.
sarkastic: (vl - christian/olli p.i.m.p.)
I am so damn spammy lately! I just need to shut up. But I'm too bored to. =D

1. I'm surprisingly not hating the ESPN coverage of Euro 2008. EXCEPT for the fact that every frakking commentator spends at least ten minutes of any given game verbally sucking Cristiano Ronaldo's cock. I'm sorry, but there's no other way to put it. Yes, he is a very good player. No, he is not the Jesus of football. STFU about Ronaldo's glorious manhood and footwork, plz.

2. Verbotene Liebe people! Have you've seen this picture? It's probably the greatest thing I've ever seen in my life, if for nothing but Christian's face: "Yeah, I'm hittin' that." Oh, Christian. And how great were they this week? Gregor FTW!

3. I'm having a Brian/Justin fanfic reading revival. Except most of it kind of sucks. Like, I really don't think Brian would be struck by the deep beauty of Justin's cerulean orbs ever, let alone in S1. Yet I still read it. What does that say about me?

4. I'm considering doing a Kara/Leoben ficathon, or possibly Kara/Leoben/Sam (you could pick any of those pairings or the OT3). Would anyone be interested? I might do a more informal one than I usually do, without assignments. But you tend to get very little actual fanfic when you do it that way. Hrm.

5. HOLY SHIT TURKEY VS. CZECH REPUBLIC. HOLY. SHIT.

I stayed up late watching the gay German soap opera saga of Christian and Oliver. The only thing I can always understand without subtitles is "Es tut mir leid." I can apologize in German! But the boys! They were so pretty and angsty and now they're finally all pretty and happy. And, seriously, I love Luke and Noah, but it is so refreshing to get past the "Self-Hating Formerly Straight One Freaks Out Around Openly Gay One" stage* and not have it end in SEVERE COCK-BLOCKAGE. Or in the case of John-Paul and Craig, soul-crushing angst. Instead we get lots of happy fun sex times and Olli being really surprisingly level-headed for a soap. I think this goes to show: put a slash couple on a soap opera, upload that shit to YouTube, and I'll watch it in any language you can subtitle. This scene practically made me cry my own tears! So much forehead touching and nuzzling and aslkdasdlksdk-type kissing.

* The stages of the Modern Gay Soap Opera Storyline:
1) Nicer "sensitive" Character A has coming out story and becomes The Gay Guy
2) Character B, who has been written as straight until this storyline, becomes attracted to A and they kiss (if American) or sleep together (if European)
3) B flips his shit and gloms onto his girlfriend and is an ass to A in an attempt to regain his manly heterosexuality
3a) A spends a lot of time looking like a kicked puppy and I spend a lot of time wanting to punch B
3b) Optional self-hating kissing and/or sex during this stage
4) Girlfriend of B discovers the affair and is either sympathetic or goes big time crazy
5) Either way, Girlfriend discovering eventually leads to B accepting his gay and attempting a relationship with A
6) B has moments of heterosexual freak-out but A's Pure Gay Love eventually wins out
6a) This is totally not the case for the JP and Craig storyline. But everything up until the last stage was!

Also, regarding last night's BSG... )

Sorry for being such a spam whore today, but I have a little something to say about the promo for next week's BSG... )

I really, really suck at replying to comments. This weekend I will try to do better, promise. Although I'm going to see Hillary Clinton (!!!!) tomorrow afternoon, so who knows what political shenanigans I'll get up to that will suck up all my time!
sarkastic: (p - p/b I'll play your games)
I finally bought a new iPod and I'm now gleefully awaiting OCD organization and pretty pictures and the fulfillment of my years-old desire to have dirty Brian/Justin scenes with me wherever I go.

Torchwood 2x13 - Exit Wounds )

I watched the new BSG. I loved the new BSG. But I rarely have anything of much interest to say except, "Kara/Anders/Leoben/Six/Lee was really hot!"

Neeeeeeeeeeeeeew Whoooooooooooooooo! *bounces*

I just watched "Maelstrom." spoilers )
sarkastic: (bsg - k/l wear me out scream and shout)
This mood theme is for the entire series so far - that means images were used from the two part season finale. Not really spoilery at all, especially after you watch tonight's episode, because I didn't use much from Part 2. In any case, this will still be up in a week, obviously, if you want to use it after the season finale. Enjoy! =D
