a quick announcement

I can has Dreamwidth.

(Automatically x-posted to LiveJournal. Which I may not be doing by default.)

just a rant looking for a home

Spike and Angel, President Roslin and Gaius Baltar, Harry and Hermione—shippers often find pairings that the original author might have overlooked. What coupling of fictional characters would you most like to see?
sleetfall is a smart guy. I mentioned to him the other day that I had somewhat left LJ behind -- I still read it fairly religiously, but the days of my making regular lengthy posts seem to be behind me. And he said that he understood, but pointed out that at least my journal had kept me writing regularly. And that was unequivocally a good thing. Like I said, he's a smart guy.

Writer's Block questions like this, though? Make me think: good fucking riddance.

Belatedly stolen form onceupon.

suppose I say 'you're my saving grace'

I am following dystopiac's lead, since I have been meaning to start posting to LJ again anyway.

It's been like 5 months since we started dating, so you would think I would have mentioned the fact that I have a girlfriend. That I have not done so should not in any way be considered a reflection upon her.

So, folks out there in LJ-land, this is Angela, alias frendzimagnary. I think she is swell.

Are you prepared for a zombie outbreak, or are you just going to wing it?
That depends. Does knowing dystopiac count as "being prepared"?

(I mean, I guess I would have to demonstrate my usefulness to her. I'm given to understand that there are a limited number of spots on her Apocalypse Team.)

Like with pie.

This Summer, a villain will rise.

(No, I'm not talking about the Dark Knight. I will talk about the Dark Knight eventually, because it was staggeringly good. But later.)

I'm talking about Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog which, as of last night, is no longer free to watch but is still available on iTunes.

I think my friend Jaywalt put it best when he said, "It's like Joss Whedon got together with the internet and made a musical for you." He's absolutely right about that. Ever since I became obsessed with Jonathan Coulton I've had a thing for music about mad scientists (prior to Dr. Horrible, the latest incarnation of this obsession came in the form of Paul & Storm aping JoCo's style for the Masters of Song Fu contest with the inestimable song "Live".)

Take that thing and multiply it's awesomeness a thousand fold. Throw in Joss Whedon writing fantastic and positively Sondheim-ian musical numbers, Nathan Fillion being a laugh-riot mook and mugging for the camera, Neil Patrick Harris being funnier than he is in Harold & Kumar and darker than he is in How I Met Your Mother, a running gag about a Mr. Ed-style equine super villain (Bad Horse, the Thoroughbred of Sin), Felicia Day standing around looking sweet and pretty, Simon Helberg being unpleasantly sweaty... the list goes on and on. The number of cool elements in this thing is staggering. Every time you think it can't get better, it does.

It's a 3-act musical, with each act consisting of an episode about 14 minutes long. If you've somehow missed the tremendous internet buzz that this thing has generated, then I'm telling you now to get on board. You'll be walking around humming the songs for days to come.

Regarding Doctor Who, Journey's End

As a follow-up to last week's post (warning, there are SPOILERS in the comments,) here are my thoughts on the Series 4 finale (with apologies for the delay, I was traveling home from the Cape):


... Good luck & good night.

(Also, as an addendum: arrivederci Russell T. Davies, it was a Hell of a ride. All hail Steven Moffat! He is a known genius. That is all.)

Regarding Doctor Who, The Stolen Earth




ETA: Spoilers in the comments.

DW meme: When you see this post, quote from Doctor Who on your LJ.

"Oh come on. Give me a day like this. Give me this one." (The Doctor Dances)

(By the way, the current season? Is killing me. It's firing on all cylinders and utterly wrenching my heart. Turn Left was brutal and glorious, and the week-long wait between episodes is interminable.)

That's now twice in my life that I've been sitting in the passenger seat of a Volvo thablueguy was driving when some idiot smashed into us from behind at reckless speeds.

We're both fine, but the car is probably totaled.
