I just heard that Jen Sacks' Nice is going to be made into a movie. So my reaction went through about three stages in less than five seconds. It started as "OH HOLY CRAP YES!" degenerated into "But, wait the fuck up, self, it's Hollywood." and then, "....OH HELL NO! STEP OFF MY BOOK, HOLLYWOOD!"  And as I read on, yes, Reese Witherspoon is being considered for the lead role. Well, there goes Captain Hollywood himself, back from another productive day of raping my childhood memories to even further degrees.

I've been in a really strange mood lately. I'm very depressed, but it's not the weepy sort of depressed. Rather, I'm sad and I don't want to get out of bed, but at the same time I'm completely angry. I don't even know, you guys. When I get like this I usually start listening to the heaviest death/thrash/black metal I can find because fast music can really calm me down sometimes, but even that isn't working. It all sounds so...slow. And yes, technically I can feel my ear drums being liquefied by the super fast beats, but I still keep thinking, "This is what all those hardcore metal heads keep worshipping the devil to? Pansies." 

And, uh, I know this is going to sound kind of paranoid, but am I the only one worried about the swine flu? I think I've heard that you can take some sort of medication to make it better, but still. All I keep thinking is that this is how it starts in all the movies. First, it's a little sickness that everyone thinks is nothing. Then it spreads and, before you know it, MOTHERFUCKING ZOMBIES.

And since I'm already talking about all sorts of things, guys how fucking awesome is HD programming? I mean, I recently bought an HDTV, but I only got it for the size because I only have regular cable. And then my mom found this special for Comcast HD and HOLY COW. I just keep marveling at how pretty everything looks. Seriously, sometimes there's not even anything good on and I'll just keep watching ridiculous programming on the Sci Fi channel about giant alligators bent on destroying the world. Shit, crappy tv is EVEN BETTER  in HD. Stupidity isn't nearly as painful to sit through when you can see the individual hairs on someone's head. Then you don't even notice that everyone in the movie is a jackass and completely retarded. SEE, AMERICA, HDTV SOLVES EVERYTHING.

I bet Legend of the Seeker must seem like a fucking masterpiece in HD.

I've also heard about that K-Hanadan music video/epilogue that's coming out. My feelings on this go somewhere between, "The mocking potential for this seems GLORIOUS." and "Wow, South Korea, still latching onto the teat of that cash cow, I see."

I'm still going to watch it. Yes, I know, I have a problem.

OMG, you guys, have you seen The Unusuals? That shit is FUCKING AWESOME. I think the reason why it worked so well for me was because there was a really good combination of humor and chemistry between the character. And because the scene where that one character just walks on the street, holding a bagged cat by the foot?  CRACKED MY SHIT UP. And come on, what other series out there features cops going after a cat killer? YOU WON'T SEE THAT SORT OF SHIT ON LAW AND ORDER.

And because I can watch no show without flailing over an OTP, yeah, I totally ship Amber Tamblyn's character with her partner.

And has anyone else seen Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency?  I found the first episode ADORABLE. The second was okay, but not as good as the first. And come on, it features one of the single best lines in television history: I'M SINGLE LIKE JESUS.

SINGLE LIKE JESUS. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You know I'm going to use that phrase from now until I die.

Okay, I have my issue with Legend of the Seeker, but mostly I think it's harmless fun.
My two favorite characters: Richard's left pec and his right.  )

In other news, my cousin--she's twelve and probably the only kid who doesn't annoy me that much--is so desperate to start a youtube video blog. She's been talking to her friends about it, but that's falling through. She's asked me if I wanted to do like a comedy thing with her--because when people think "funny", it's my mug that comes to mind--but I'm not sure about that.

I've had it driven into my mind since I was ten and the evil personal computers were starting to get really popular, that if you even post your name in a public website or a picture of yourself online, SHIT IS GOING TO GO DOWN. Now, I don't know what type of shit (my mom never specified. She just looked at me sternly until I cowered) but it still makes me uneasy to think of putting myself online so openly. I mean, it's different with a LJ. You can remain pretty impersonal with an LJ. Also I'm pretty sure none of you out there are fifty-year old men, waiting for me to have a weak moment so that you can seduce me with promises of candy and companionship. OR SO I HOPE.

So we'll see about the video blog.

Okay, random drive-by post. You guys, what the hell is up with Smallville lately? Granted I haven't watched since the third season, but suddenly they bring in this Davis fellow and he falls in love with Chloe and OMG I cannot stop flailing over it. Obviously the writers are going to fuck it up and break my heart (AGAIN) but I can still squee while the eps are good--and by good I mean squee-worthy, not you know, good good.

God, this ship doesn't just hit all my evil guy/good girl kinks. It throws it on the bed, ravishes them properly and then leaves them wanting an after sex cigarette. Please please,  SV writers! Don't screw up my ship! You've screwed Chloe over SO many times. Please let her have this.

You know what I love? Ordering stuff online. You know what I love even more? Free three-day shipping.

It doesn't take a lot to make me happy.

Wow, I've been watching a lot of tv lately. I watched Friday Night Lights because everyone and their fat uncle has been raving about that show since forever. Honestly, I liked it, but I'm not necessarily in it for the plot. Tim Riggins is smoking, yo. I'm totally digging the whole redneck thing he has going on. And I really like his relationship with Lyla, but I know how shows are. They tease me with the hot OTP and then when I get all comfy and attached, they come out and rip my heart out through my chest. (Thanks for that, BSG.)

I'm also watching Dexter and it is ABSOLUTE LOVE. I tried it once upon a time on DVD, but it didn't really stick. Now I can't get enough. I don't know what it is about that I like exactly. It just has this certain quality of silent madness to it. Okay, maybe not so silent, but it's not the sort of crazy where Dexter's sliding down the bathroom wall, wailing about how he's so broken and shit. Yes, Dexter has GINORMOUS issues, but he's not listening to Evanescence or being emo, which, according to fanfiction, is how all mentally unstable people act. And it's set in Miami! I'm so used to all the shows I watch being set in Korea or Japan or Taiwan that when they suddenly mentioned Coral Way I actually went, BWAH? And there is a lot of Spanish in this, which YAY! Although I'm pretty sure that some of the dialogue was a little stiff compared to how it's normally spoken. Maybe I'm just being overly analytical.

Man that BSG finale was ridiculous.
Spoilers for ep of BSG )
In other news, I just spent all of my birthday money on a 32 inch tv. Why? Because next time I watch BOF I want JP's curls to be the size of my thumb.

I hated Dollhouse. Well, let me correct that. I hated the first half hour of it and couldn't stand it anymore so I changed the channel. And was it necessary to have Eliza Dushku posing naked during every commercial break? Really?

And now I have an inkling of how Chinese speakers must have felt during Firefly because that split second of Spanish Eliza Dushku spoke made my ears bleed.

Here is an unpopular opinion: I like the new Being Human pilot better than the old one. I don't doubt that I would have liked the series had they stayed with the old actors, but I like the new ones too. And I like the dialogue in this one better. Granted, when I first saw the new actor playing Mitchell, my first thought was, "Oh, God, Euro-trash Dracula." But I found him to be pretty charismatic on-screen. And hot.

So imagine my glee when, after having had such a shitty day, I found out that a new X-men cartoon had been made and that it was streaming online!  HAPPY DANCE.

More on this later.
Here's a surprise. When the characters on Innocent Love kiss they actually look like they're enjoying it. Mildly. I haven't been this shocked since I saw Pride.

Innocent Love is such ridiculous crap. I LOVE IT SO. The guy the protagonist (Maki) likes, is taking care of his girlfriend who's in a coma (only coma!girlfriend never closes her eyes which is creepier than you can imagine). But that's not the crazy part. He has probably three friends in total, including Maki. THEY ARE ALL IN LOVE WITH HIM. The only person who isn't? His girlfriend. OH THE HILARITY.

I also watched the thai movie Chocolate which I thought was kind of meh. BUT! The fight scenes were incredible. The leading actress is my new hero. She was amazing. If I'd seen this movie when I was seven I probably would have gone BATSHIT CRAZY OVER IT. Crappy plot and engrish subtitles or not. The fight scenes were that good.

Legend of the Seeker cracks my shit up so much. It's like month old candy, horrible at first, but if you suddenly find yourself hungry in the middle of the night NOM NOM NOM. 

More later.
I'm not even that much of a slash fan, but GOD Merlin and Arthur are SO OTP. Where the hell are my icons at?

Actually, I heard someone say that Morgana, Gwenevere, Arthur, and Merlin should just all hook up into one big foursome and that's not such a bad idea....NEED ICONS NOW.

Oh Sam. Sam. Sam. SAM. I could like you. I really could. Just stop following Sookie around like such a damn puppy (note to self: very clever).

Also, it cracks me up that when he's with Sookie, he sort of has this macho thing going on and acts all possessive and shit. Kind of douchebaggy like.

But when he's with Tara it's all "Why are you leaving? Is it something I did? WHAT DID I DO WRONG?" AND I LOVE IT TO DEATH.

OH Sam, sometimes I think you're just an asshat but then you go and act like that and I just have to believe that within that douchebaggy shell there lies the heart of an insecure 15-year old girl. I like you a lot better when I think of you like that.

I'm really geeking out over this True Blood series. The other day when I read something about someone not liking the show I found myself getting really mad, like, how dare they not appreciate this masterpiece, THE INSOLENCE!

You know, sometimes I just feel like a really angry nerd.
