samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (there's been trials and tribulations)
I feel like shit. I've had these strange body aches and dull pain since Tuesday. First it just started with the ball of my right foot, and now the muscles in the back of my left thigh are sore and I'm starting to feel it in my hands. I don't know what I did. Maybe standing for five hours with cheap pairs of shoes are doing it to me, or I pinched a nerve? I felt fine on Monday, but as soon as early Tuesday morning rolled around, it hit me. :\

In other news, because I know a few people are going to want to hear about this or in case anybody's curious: The Last Airbender's getting critically panned by both professional critics and fans alike. So far it's got an astounding rating of 9% on Rotten Tomatoes. (That may or may not change since it's only been released this week.)

Personally I can't say I'm surprised. Even when you leave the casting decisions out of the reasons why you shouldn't see this, it just sounds like a disappointing film in every other aspect. I really hope nobody pays to see this, only because it doesn't seem to come anywhere close to the energy and spirit of the show.

(By the way, the rumors about the female characters' roles getting diminished or completely forgotten? Sorry to say, but given what's been said in reviews so far, it's true. Not only was Katara a weaker fighter, but she didn't even get to inspire the Earth Kingdom prisoners to fight back against the Fire Nation soldiers, or fight against Pakku, or even get the upper-hand in her one-on-one fight with Zuko. And the Kyoshi Warriors--plus Suki--were cut from the film completely.)

EDIT: Also, I've tried nutella for the first time ever. It's ridiculously delicious. (Sadly I'm the only one in the house who likes it. Too bad, there's going to be a jar in the house from now on.) I gobbled up two pieces of toast covered in nutella and I plan to do it again tomorrow when I wake up. I'm just sad I couldn't celebrate its goodness with bananas because we're all out. :(

So [livejournal.com profile] sleepyscribbles, my Internet wife, and I were discussing our RPG ship and how there will be a break up of epic proportions, where the guy is like "I don't wanna hurt you bb" and the girl is like "we can still be together, we can work through it, DON'T DO THIS TO ME" and it lead to this.

Have an AIM conversation! Lots of emoticons, but you can live through it. )


Thing is, I looked up the episode, found it, and I wanted to cry again. It was the English dub. And yes, that's the exact line, except it was 'just' instead of 'still'. I regret nothing.

2604 / 50000 words. 5% done!

For NaNoWriMo, I decided to go with some light and fluffy, somewhat dramatic plot, because I haven't had the time or patience to organize a clear and coherent plot structure. I'm concerned with seeing if I can accomplish getting a daily quota in for the project more than I am with quality. Quantity first, quality later. 8D; (Also, the plot has boy love. And an OT3. Fuck yeah.)

I started reading "Dead Until Dark" by Charlaine Harris. It is such a trashy read--don't tell me it isn't, because the line "THERE IS A JUICY ARTERY IN YOUR GROIN" totally did it--but I like it because Sookie Stackhouse actually kicks ass, unlike Bella Swan, and Bill is not the stalker that Edward Cullen was. I hope.

Since real life is boring, have a few links.

Nostalgic Critic reviews Surburban Comando. I had no idea about this movie's existence. Now I kinda wish I didn't. D:

Batman: The Bold and The Brave, the musical! [livejournal.com profile] cheriestar told me about this episode. The show is pretty campy for a Batman cartoon, so this episode was fun. Neil Patrick Harris playing the Big Bad! Super heroines singing love ballads while knocking out villains! Oh and Batman sings at some point. It's kinda awesome.

lmao, Secret of Nihm 2 is on and I'm watching it right now. I haven't seen this movie since it aired on the Disney Channel, when I was in the 7th grade. It is so horrifyingly bad. It's like a Disney sequel, except it's blander than the usual Disney sequel.

Also, Martin is the goofiest villain ever. Do all brainwashed villains get this weirdass accent they didn't have before, and magically conjure a dark, flowing cloak?
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now ((disney) WHAT THE HELL)
I watched it. I watched the whole thing. What the hell did I just watch? I feel like I got trolled, but it's actually a real movie.

The only thing that makes it better is Nostalgic Critic's review of it.

(also why the fuck am i still awake.)
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (♥ sword fight)
okay I already posted but. I have to post about this.

After reading through some of the manga, I decided to sit down and watch the English dub of the Super S season of Sailor Moon. Why the English dub? I'm too lazy to hunt down the Japanese episodes and I found the English dubs first.

I'm watching episode 128: Dreams Take Flight, and just when Sailor Moon's about to get stabbed by the creepy doll lady, the rose hits her in the face. Tuxedo Mask is on top of a street light. This happens:

Tiger's Eye: Another uninvited guest. And what's with the Mr. Disco Vampire look?
Tuxedo Mask: Who do you think you are? How dare you talk to me that way! My rose thorns will puncture your evil!

I-I laughed so hard that I nearly choked on the Dorito chip I had in my mouth. And then I cried a little. Ho man, I must be tired if I find this hilarious.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (♥ ugh aliens)
oh my god why am I watching clips of Passions - the soap opera - on YouTube?

YES I USED TO WATCH SOAP OPERAS. I mean, yes, it's Passions and it's ridiculous. I know it is. But Ashley, Fei Fei and I used to religiously watch this show when we were in middle school. They used to come over to my house nearly every day. We watched Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z ... and then this soap opera. We knew all of their names, the relationships, I got THE FUCKING BOOK which had lots of sex in it... this entire show was my life when I was in middle school, amongst Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z. It was so pathetic, but I still get all sad when I watch the clips. D:

Here, have a clip of Gwen and Theresa, who fought over this rich guy Ethan.



You know, I was all about OMG ETHAN/THERESA FOREVER when I was younger. But now that I watch this years later, I'm rooting for Gwen in this one. Theresa was so obsessed with Ethan that it was insane, and she totally plotted to get together with Ethan. (Also, Theresa always looks like she's pouting and that she's about to burst into tears. It's those puppy dog eyes, I think.)

Gwen here? She is the scorned lover holding a baseball bat and swinging it around at her traitorous best friend - and she's wearing a red cocktail dress and heels, and also digging into a little purse for a cell phone at the same time, while attacking Theresa. It's so nonsensical. You can only get away with that in soap operas.

Oh, and apparently LUIS AND SHERIDAN NEVER ENDED UP TOGETHER IN THE END? WHY?! oh god my heart. ;___;

Well, I didn't whole-heartedly approve of Ulquiorra and Orihime from Bleach being a couple during the whole KIDNAPPED ORIHIME plot. I just don't like the fandom's general treatment with their relationship and how they turn it into something it isn't.

Another complaint I have is Orihime's constant role as a damsel in distress. I'm so sick of Orihime's character growth being stunted in favor of somebody else rescuing her, especially when she's physically capable of protecting herself and others. Ulquiorra kidnapping her didn't make things any better.

Despite my complaints ... I think this flash is adorable. The video! )

You know what everybody - in real life, in fandom, in general - needs?

The iloveegg Song.

Somebody played this flash during my last day of class today. I think it was the lack of sleep or the hilarious memory stemming off from it, but I couldn't stop giggling. At all.

Go watch it. Now. It still manages to make me smile. xD;

oh, lord.

'Twilight' author sued for plagiarism?

Two things I'm wondering:

1. Is this even true? Show me a news article, or it didn't happen. (There's another article here, but it's basically the copied text of what's above. The bad grammar and the misspellings alone leaves me skeptical.) I mean, it would make sense, because I don't understand how she wrote an entire novel in two to three months as a housewife and mother of three kids without the editing process and without something suspicious in the works. (I'm not saying that a housewife and/or mother can't write a novel. It's the time it took to write that novel - with all of those responsibilities to deal with - that seems entirely impossible to me.) However, I'm questioning the article's legibility, and I'm assuming Smeyer's innocent until proven guilty because plagiarism isn't something to joke around about. That can ruin someone's career in a split second. :\

That, and plagiarism isn't exactly "she took my idea for a story"; it usually falls under "she took scenes and words directly out of my story and adapted them into her novel". Let's face it, there's nothing really original in a plot about an ordinary girl falling in love with a dangerous supernatural guy by itself. So unless Smeyer truly copied the "sparkling vampire" scene word-for-word, it'd be difficult to bring this series to court over one fictional short story that uses the same basic formula for every other vampire novel out there, y'know?

2. Why would anyone want to claim this series as their own? Seriously? (Okay, I know, the money. But still.)

Edit: This page here states that it's still filming, so I'm 95% sure this article is absolutely false.

Twilight's deleted sex scene!

Yes, this icon is very relevant, actually. :P

... Okay, I have to admit, this was funny.

Haha.

I have a Twitter, but it's just ... kinda sitting there. Think I should get rid of that account. xD;

Are the photos of Borneo's monster snake real?

lmao. That's so fake. I think the world would notice whether or not a monster snake exists.

You know. There's moments where I forget why Stephen King is awesome. Then this happens: Stephen King says Stephenie Meyer can't write. Then I remember, I laugh, and all is well in my little world.

Except that I have a headache, and I have to write my own personal vagina monologue ... when I really don't want to talk about it. I get why it's important, but I'm so 'meh' about it. :/

In the meantime, I'll help make dinner and listen to the rest of the audiobook for "Boy Meets Boy" by David Levithan. It's so unbelievably corny to listen to (I just can't dig the way the narrator is telling the story from Paul's POV), but so far it's a decent story.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (♥ you've just been sylared)


If you haven't seen this yet, watch it. It's funny.

But the ending is my favorite part *coughcough*.

Holy cow, the media won't shut up about Jessica Simpson's new curves and how she needs to lose weight. Who the fuck cares what Perez Hilton or whatever his name is thinks about her weight? She looks fine. LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE - oh wait.

Read another article in the newspaper today that involved somebody losing a friend on facebook over a hamburger. lol whut.

Here, have a meme I took from [livejournal.com profile] lullabyte, because everything else is boring.
