Finally hauled ass and moved my LJ to Dreamwidth so I have a backup. Just in time for the Lunar New Year too!

In 2016 i -
1. fell in love with Yuri on Ice. I still love it, but no longer obsess over it because of 2 and 3 below.
2. then fell in love with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The sheer wonder of JK Rowling's world was a joy to revisit. I enjoyed every moment of it and watched it twice. Am currently obsessing over Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and Percival Graves (Colin Farrell) and their respective gorgeous trench coats. Also as much as i ship Newt/Tina, Newt/Graves is my current trash-pairing of choice. lol
3. I also got hooked on Star Wars' Rogue One. Jyn/Cassian omg new actually straight OTP. They are so sweet together <3
4. Recently, I have also gotten back to reading Arthur/Eames again, hence my icon. Still a lovely place to play in :)
5. Went to Summer Sonic Tokyo. Walked something like 120,000 steps according to FitBit. Also fell in love with The Blossoms, James Bay, and The Struts. Great new bands/artists. Tom Odell and The Feeling and Travis also had great new albums. Also got to see Suede again, for which i was grateful.
6. Went to Croatia - beautiful country. I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful it was. Will go back again!
7. Discovered Ken Liu and the wonderful book, Paper Menagerie - beautiful collection of short stories. Definitely my book of the year. Along this line also discovered Ted Chiang. Another amazing sci-fi/speculative fiction writer.

New campy blog address for, hopefully, a new beginning. Haven't touched this blog in years but it's probably time I started again. Probably also need to change the layout hmm.

too many ideas and no time to execute lol

So! Year of the Dragon and all that. Although honestly I've been spending the time squeeing over BBC's Sherlock and reading fic *sheepish grin* Can't help it, there's nothing to do in US to celebrate Chinese New Year, which kinda sucks. So i retreat to fic. Do not judge me. XD

If you're wondering what Sherlock is, it's probably The Best Sherlock adaptation I've ever seen. It is an updated, modernized version of the Sherlock classics, set in the 21st century. And because I suck at describing why it's so so good, here's a trailer -



And since [livejournal.com profile] invicta has so wonderfully listed ten reason's why one should watch Sherlock, i'll put them here. Everything she says. *emphatic nod* Season 3 needs to appear. Now.

1. Every actor in this series is completely on-point with his or her performance. I'm especially in love with the two leads, plus Mark Gatiss as Mycroft Holmes.
2. Cinematography. Great camera angles all around. Series two has some especially gorgeous wide shots and use of negative space.
3. Score. Never cheesy, and it peaks at all the right moments.
4. It is hugely, hugely clever. Never predictable, gives you just enough clues to begin to try and solve the mysteries yourself, but turns around at the end with a wickedly smart surprise.
5. The lead actors are ridiculously attractive. Hell, pretty much all the actors are ridiculously attractive.
6. Locations. In six episodes, you get to see a bajillion corners of London, plus Dartmoor at its eeriest.
7. Wit. Sherlock utters some fantastically cutting lines you'll want to throw at people IRL. (But you shouldn't.)
8. Pacing. This show is written like a series of mystery thrillers. There's never a slow, dull, or awkwardly paced movement. The action barrels on with perfect momentum.
9. Nods to the Arthur Conan Doyle canon. Readers of the original Sherlock Holmes stories will be able to catch little references to them, but in unexpected ways.
10. SHERLOCK. JOHN. BROMANCE. <---- this. <3

And #11 - Benedict Cumberbatch. His voice. And those cheekbones and the coat. <3

BBC America is the root of all evil. No really. Let me explain -

It all started with me switching on BBC America when they were screening 'Any Dream Will Do', a competition to find the next 'Joseph' for a musical. There was one particular judge, called John Barrowman. He did stuff on the show like this - which was way too charming <3

So I went on youtube, and typed in 'John Barrowman' and realized the guy is gay and has this adorable hot partner called Scott Gills, and together they do things like this which is beyond adorable.

And then Youtube being youtube throws these deluge of videos and i learnt several things:
  1. He flirts. With anything that moves. Would shag them too.
  2. There's two shows he's in. Doctor Who, and Torchwood. They're linked. And in Torchwood he shags this cute butler called Ianto. They shag. They kiss. And Ianto is really fine. I mean look at this. *dead*
It also really helps that Torchwood and Doctor who are both about Time Travel, Aliens, and, for once, excellent scripting.

So yeah. Um. Help. I found Torchwood. And Doctor Who. And Ianto oh god andtheresjack/iantofic so help me. D=

As if i really needed ANOTHER OTP and TWO LONG TV SERIALS to get addicted to right now. D=

PS. Growing rec list here *facepalms*

Watched X-Men First Class the other day. I think i squeed from the moment the movie started, right till the very end. My wee fangirl heart was having serious trouble trying to come to terms with McAvoy's charm and Fassbender's hotness. *dead* Also. The slash. <3 <3 <3

Fangirling aside, that was an excellent movie, and definitely my favourite movie in the X-Men franchise. It had the right amount of fun to it. It wasn't all serious, and was jsut the right amount of cheesy and 60s-esque, which really reminded me of the reason why I loved x-men in the first place - the cartoons. The costumes were spot on!

McAvoy was extremely adorable/funny as a Xavier with hair. He was SOCUTESOCUTESOCUTE. Also, the fail genome pick-up lines made me LOL. And Fassbender. Oh god. I hope he really becomes the next James Bond because he was totally badass here. What with the bespoke suits, and that nice arse, and he speaks german and french oh god. Together, they are unrivaled in this movie. The chemistry was awesome. And the slash implications infinitely better because of just how good the acting was. I'm so in love.

So yes, Charles/Erik aka McFassy has just overtaken Inception's Arthur/Eames as my new OTP. And look, i have the exponentially growing fic rec list to show for it. Although it is rather frustrating that all the good fics are WIPs now *facepalms*

On other things, um, Tom Hiddleston is rather adorable as Loki. Superbly pointy and evil. I like. <3 One more guy to my increasingly british harem =D

Oh, and new layout. Because I've left the dbsk fandom for so long there's no longer any point in keeping the header pic. Unfortunately my photoshop stopped working so I couldn't make a proper header pic and matching color combi. Forgive the rather crude mashup of layouts. =D

Had a rather hilarious phone conversation with the customer service rep at UOB today. Before this, let me just say that if you think american banks have retarded customer service or security systems, you have NEVER tried a singaporean bank. They are practically stuck in the middle ages in comparison. They still use some form of primitive 2-factor authentication, for one. It's this ridiculous little token that, when you press a button, generates a number which you have to key in AFTER your password just to get into your account. Which means you have to continue carrying that dongle around whenever you want to log into your account. It is also alot more trouble than its worth, just in case you were thinking that is a bloody cool idea. Well, you're wrong. The system utterly failed me today:

Me: *types in password and username and hits enter*
Webpg: Hello! We are using 2-factor authentication! Please enter it now!
Me: *whips out token in triumph and types long string of numbers in* - i was actually extremely proud of myself for remembering to bring it all the way back to the states.
Webpg: Ahh. But no. You see, this token you have, IT IS EXPIRED! BAD! UTTERLY USELESS! Sorry old chap, you'll have to get a new one. (obviously the webpage doesn't say that. I blame the annoying britishness of this on too much fanfiction and one paisley!Eames =_=)
Me: WHAT THE----- *whips out phone and dials long string of numbers back to bloody singaporean customer service*

..

Illegally cheerful and annoying rep (hereafter called ICAAR): HELLO! HOW MAY I HELP YOU??? (also, please imagine everything she says in a very bad, exagerrated singlish accent. It helps the comedy)
Me: Er. Right. *figuratively backs up a little from the rainbow sparks spilling from the phone* I need help getting my token to work. It's telling me it's expired or broken.
ICAAR: Oh! I see! Well, Ms F---, I have a question for you okay, did you access your account more than 6 months ago?
Me: *nervous laughter* um, yeah, *koff*morelikeayear*koff*
ICAAR: Orrrrh see lah, that is why. Because you never login. That's why I suggest right, you must login once a month so this will not happen. So now right, Ms F--- you must fill in the Update Form and send it back to us with your token. We will send it back to you in 2 weeks after we have re-synced it with the system.
Me: What?! No one told me I had to do this monthly! Isn't it supposed to remain working forever or something?!!!! Anyway, can't you like, remotely resync this or something?!
ICAAR: No, Ms F----, you cannot. You have to fill in the Update Form and send it back to us with your token. We will send it back to you in 2 weeks after we have re-synced it with the system. (yes she literally re-quoted the damn thing back at me. =_=)

Me:...
ICAAR: Do you understand anot? Do you see where I'm coming from, Ms F-----? (I wanted to smack her about here. =_=)
Me: Yes I understand what you're saying. It's just - i can't send the token back right now and I really need to access my account so is there any way you can fix this.
ICAAR: Of course! Ms F-----! I can help you! Don't Worry!
Me: Right so c--
ICAAR: Do you want me to help you? Can I help you?
Me; *facepalms* (like seriously. customer svc is asking if i want them to help me) Yes! OF COURSE i want you to help me. =_=
ICAAR: Ok so, before i help you right, I want you to know that i only can help you a bit one. Only can give you your bank balance. I cannot help you pay bills.
Me: (oh for the love of g--) what. I can already see my balance, I just need the thing to work so I can pay a bill!!!!!!
ICAAR: *extremely serious* Oh no no no Ms F--- I cannot do that.
Me: *trying hard not to laugh hysterically on phone here* Ok, you know what, nevermind. I'll, figure something out. Thanks anyway. Bye.
ICCAR: YOU HAVE A VERY GOOD DAY! THANK YOU BYE~!

Why so fail. Why. =_=

On other things, been rather busy lately - my office had a bit of a personnel shuffle, and I somehow found myself saddled with the responsibility of being team lead and the neighbourhood aunt aggie/mediator of a bunch of shop floor workers. On top of managing a number of investigations that have ballooned beyond control because now everyone in the company have to file issues, one per month even. That means yours truly has to investigate said issues, and frankly, if i see that manila and blue webpage interface to manage said issues again, i'm going to cut someone.

On top of that, boss has given me an ultimatum to finish a bunch of projects. Also, i have japanese class after work. In other words, well and truly fucked =_=

Have also realized a few things:
  1. shop floor people play a rather interesting type of power struggle. It's nothing like the stuff in law dramas; in fact more towards the type of high school/playground politics like, 'i don't like him. i don't wanna work with him'. Or 'i have finished all the work you've asked me. can i get a promotion now?'. Honey, if promotions are really treats like you think, a lot more people would be happy as beavers working right now. lol
  2. The person or persons who have had any part in designing all the blasted web interfaces for my company's systems were likely drunk or high. They also ought to be shot. Or made to navigate 1980s webpages over and over till they die. ARGH.
  3. I hate people. ;_;

So it's been awhile since I recced covers - I don't usually do this because I tend to be partial to the original since that is the truest delivery of the songwriter's original emotions.

That said, these are probably two of the best covers ever for a single song. The original is by Bob Dylan, who is a legend in his own right, and definitely has to take credit for writing an amazing song. You can hear the original here.

However. These two covers somehow transcend that original, and bring it to a very magical place. Perhaps it's the voice. Or the arrangement. But i love these to death.

The first is by Bryan Ferry - vocalist of Roxy Music. This reminds me of great love stories etched into the dark, endless velvety night sky.



The second is by Adele. Another amazing voice, but a very different take. Bryan Ferry's version tends to soar and evoke images of magic and mystery and quiet midnight beauty; while Adele's strips everything to a very bare, simple, honest emotion.



So, which do you prefer? Personally, I like to listen to Bryan Ferry's version before bed, and Adele's when i'm awake and chilling while reading a book. I identify with Adele's version more, but I always end up getting suckered/seduced/romanced by Bryan Ferry's voice. =)

So. Luna Sea - only the greatest JRock band EVER, at least in my book. This was the first japanese band i loved - I found out about them when I was 14 and, together with V, we obsessed over them, and the Shine album, endlessly. We even managed to sneak the Shine album into the school PA system so everyone had to listen to the album while we were waiting for the morning assembly to begin. =D And when, two years later, they broke up, we were HEARTBROKEN. Up till today i vividly remember how heartbroken i was. We were both just moaning in class about how they were GONE and HOW NOW?!!!!

Fast-forward 10 years later, and then they drop the whole reunion thing on me. I was praying so hard they would stop by in USA, because by hook or by crook i swore that I would fly over regardless to see them. So when they announced the LA stop we quickly bought tickets =D =D =D I didnt' think it'd actually turn out to be better than anything i could ever dream of *cough*sawryuichi*cough*

Concert report here.. )

Ryuichi sighting =D )

So for the past two days I've pretty much vegetated in front of my computer reading fic, reorganizing my music collection, and tinkering with my shiny new tumblr. Of course I also found the time to shop (and get extremely broke) on black friday *winces* That said I may have found the ultimate sweet spot for black friday shopping - one must hit the midnight madness at 4am, when the first wave of people leave, so you don't have the problem with parking or elbowing people for a spot at the queue, or standing in line after line just to pay/try clothes/get coffee.

On the flip side, that one bright idea has left me extremely broke, because once there's not enough of a crowd to tire me out, i go batshit crazy shopping =_=

==

Also, Take That has a new album. Yes, you heard right. Take That has a new album. D= And good ol' Robbie Williams is back with the boys!!!!! *does a happy dance*

Now you may be wondering why on earth i'm reccing a boyband (DBSK doesn't count XD). A very mature man-band to be precise, but still. It's pop. It's 90s stuff. It's a tad embarrassing to even mention one listens to them. (Though I guess admitting I used to really like Backstreet Boys is equally damning too). I never quite liked Take That in general. Always found it silly that Gary Barlow got to sing everything while the other four harmonized the chorus like very classy back-up singers. I was frankly glad when Robbie went solo - his Swing While You're Winning concert at the Albert Hall is still one of my all-time favourite live performances.

Imagine my surprise though, when i sampled the album. Progress is an extremely good album. Frankly, if I'd never seen the title, I would never have known that this was Take That. It doesn't sound like a boyband pop record at all. Rather it sounds like a mash-up of the best of british popular music. At times while listening it's almost uncanny, the artists and songs this album makes me recall. It's a little bit of Coldplay, a little Paolo Nutini, and that honesty that I tend to associate with the Beatles. All this peppered with a bit of Suede-esque glamour and Muse/Queen grandeur. 

When Robbie and Gary mesh their song writing together it produces a very addictive brand of pop. You have Gary's knack for emotional, beautiful tunes, coupled with Robbie's tendency to give everything that little edge to make it still relevant today. I love this album. I only hope Robbie sticks around long enough to make another. Gary Barlow is a really good song writer, but at times it tends to get boring, so I think it's a good thing Robbie's back to add that little spunk. =D

Here's the sampler for the entire album. My personal favourites are The Flood, Pretty Things (which sounds a little demented BUT SO BEAUTIFUL), and Wait (reminds me of a Suede song).




And here's a live performance of The Flood. I love the huge wall of sound this provides. Love it to bits. There's something about the big smile on Robbie's face that tugs at my heart. They all look so happy to be together again.



I've a new found appreciation for Take That's music now. They are so much better when the others sing lead too. Case in point being a beautiful acoustic version of Shine. I love Mark Owen's voice. This is from the first album after their reunion in 2006, minus Robbie. Very good song.



And lastly, the song about the rift between the two. As always, better live. I like the honesty in this song, and the tune.

it's been awhile, sorry for not posting as much as I really should. LOL But, i've been busy! over these few things, primarily:
  1. My new phone. A gorgeous, black and red DROIIIIID incredible. By HTC mind you, because i'm a sucker for the HTC Sense UI, and motorola really, really sucks. XD It's so liberating to finally be connected 24/7, and i find myself turning on the computer less and less, because, hey, i can do everything else on the phone! hhahaha. That's all good until i see the phone bill of course. D=  I actually like the Android interface better than the iphone. Or maybe i jsut like the htc interface. The keyboard is awesome. At least i don't make crazy mistakes like i do on the iphone =_=
  2. A/E inception fic. OMG. This just reminded me why i really love english fandoms - the excellent writing. I look at the fic being churned out at a scary rate of 10 a day and i despair of every reading all of them. lol Also, harry potter/inception crossovers. O.M.G. best crossover ever. Somehow the fact that arthur is a wizard is really kinda cool. LOL Been reading fic whenever i get a break - lunch, before bed, after i wake....^^;;;;   The thing about english fandoms is they tend to deal with a whole different level of emotional subtleties which I find asian fandoms don't usually go into. That might be attributed to western cultures being more screwed up open but it really does make for good reading. Asian fandoms usually end up being two dimensional compared to stuff they write about in english fandoms. Either that or i'm just spoiled by the quality of the writing in Harry Potter/Inception fandoms. lol
  3. Actually, work. =_= i kinda miscounted/forgotten the fact that i have actually taken vacation for the last two weeks of december. So. Um. Screwed. Because i have to finish all my projects by year end and my time line just got truncated by 2 weeks. Shit.
On other things, OMG YAY LUNA SEA CONCERT IN TWO WEEKS!!! And black friday before then. Kinda have a long list of electronics I need to purchase... my wallet... T_T

HARRY POTTER IN A WEEK! i cannot wait. *starts fidgeting*

And i think i'm officially over the DBSK fandom. Unfortunately. That new JYJ english album was actually the last straw. I'm afraid i only really like DBSK songs when they're together. The JYJ stuff by kanye west was just.... not my type of music. I guess i'm tired of all the drama in kpop fandoms. So i'm out. I'll watch the occasional drama, but otherwise, i think i'm done.  My sister, on the other hand, is over the moon, because she gets to inherit my ginormous hoard of dbsk stuffs. =_= I'm keeping the cds though. I still love the music. lol

On happier news, Suede and Luna Sea have reunited. Two of my favourite bands in the world. <3 <3 <3 Although the fact that they're reuniting after 10 years and I've actually seen them through several albums and traumatic breakups makes me feel extremely old. T_T But! regardless. Yay. Good music is back in the world again. lol

So i was browsing the MUSE wiki randomly, and then THIS showed up:

"The clapping at the beginning of "Starlight" can be written as "— ·· — ···" in Morse code, which spells out "TITS"


Seriously. So all this time I've been trying to memorize that clap for concerts, i've actually been learning how to describe female anatomy in morse code. ROFLMAO. Oh god. *dies laughing*

For the unintiated, this is the song, and the 'clapping' is really what the audience tries to do when they are mimicking Dom's drums. Matt usually tries to make the audience clap this ridiculously complicated pattern but unfortunately, when you're jumping and singing AND clapping. it's rather hard. ^^;;; also, dear Matt, not everyone is a musical genius like you are. LOL

 Tagged by [livejournal.com profile] cimmerian_shade . Here you go, finally done it XDXDXD

Had done this once before, but meh, one never runs out of things to say about oneself... ROFL

Once you've been tagged,
you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things,
facts, habits, or goals about you.
At the end, choose 7 people to be tagged .
  1. My first foray into japanese culture/comics etc. was probably Slamdunk. I can't remember how I'd picked up the books; it might have started with me watching a random ep of the anime on TV.  Regardless, i think I saw a few eps, got hooked, and then everything went downhill from there ^^;;;; I fell in love with my first jap song, the theme song by WANDS, and then I bought all the issues of the comic. And then, i discovered yaoi in the form of Sendoh/Rukawa *big sweatdrop*
  2. I like slashfic/yaoi. LOVE. The fandoms I predominantly stalk are Harry/Draco, Sirius/Remus, Arthur/Eames, and, recently, Yunho/Changmin. Though my first love has always been, and always will be, Harry/Draco. =D
  3. I tell everyone the first cds i bought with my own money were L'Arc En Ciel's Heart and Luna Sea's Shine. In truth I might have sneaked in SPEED's Moment too (which is beyond embarrassing). Also, I picked up L'arc's cd because I'd thought Hyde was female *facepalms*
  4. I am first and foremost an Anglophile. Then i am a japan-ophile and fracophile, in that order. I blame my parents for the british tendencies, and slamdunk for the japanese. French i blame wholly on Joseph Gordon Levitt singing in french.
  5. Um, i speak english and chinese predominantly. Also a smattering of badly accented cantonese, japanese, and dribbles of french - what i can remember of four years of french class (which is not a whole lot at all, when you think about it) ^^;
  6. I would like to tour the whole of japan and europe before I die.
  7. I tend to watch movies i like many many times. I watched each LOTR movie, the extended versions, 3-4 times each. At one point I could recite the quotes. Also, I watched Inception three times. =D
  8. I reread The Chronicles of Narnia and the Harry Potter series on an average of once a year. Yes i like the books that much.
  9. As much as I tell people i'm a fantasy/sci-fi freak, i've never finished the LOTR trilogy at all. On the contrary, I've read Tolkien's Silmarillion and The History of Middle Earth from cover to cover. I'm not sure how i managed to tolerate the dry writing in those books and yet am unable to sit through LOTR. =_=
  10. Also, even though I'm a sci-fi freak, i do not like the star wars/star trek franchise. It's just so - cliche. LOL Though the irony is that those movies likely launched the cliches in the first place. LOL
  11. As i get older i get more convinced that i've made a huge blunder in course of study and career choice.
  12. When i was a kid i wanted to be a scientist. Then i got realistic and decided to be an engineer. Somewhere along the way thereafter i wanted to be the lead guitarist in a rock band or an artist. But then i grew up and money got important. So now, i'm still an engineer. Sigh.
  13. My music collection is predominantly male - i.e. i don't own much music sung by females. I am not sure why, but the female voice gives me a headache. Too shrill maybe.
  14. Sometimes i lie awake at night and fear that a wish i'd made long ago on a real shooting star while i was young and stupid would come true. I don't want it to.
  15. The best and only memory i have of my first relationship is of me dragging him down for a kiss at a busy crossroads while at school. I later wrote that into a fic. 
  16. I have 65+gb of music. A quarter english, a quarter japanese, and a quarter chinese. The remainder is split between french, korean and classical music.
  17. Once I met Gackt in singapore by accident and shook his hand. He spoke chinese to us and I was too flabbergasted to answer coherently. [livejournal.com profile] bonedoll did all the talking, bless her soul. XD This is probably the only cool celeb-sighting story i have T_T
  18. I have only won one contest where I really wanted the prize. It was two tickets for a Suede concert showcase at the TV studio. I only got lucky because the newspaper had printed the wrong email address and I'd gotten the right permutation of the email by accident. And yes, if you squint i'm in a blue shirt sitting on the right corner of the screen on the dvd. LOL
  19. I am 3 degrees of separation from Mayday, 2 degrees from Joseph Gordon Levitt, and 4 degrees away from DBSK. This gives me immense satisfaction, though calling up favours to meet them through that chain of connections is probably not going to happen. ROFL
  20. I once squeezed into the front seat (just the passenger front seat mind you) of a Volkswagen Beetle with my best friend. This was two girls with huge backpacks and balancing a basket of fruit in the front seat while the kind old lady driver was seriously regretting her decision to pick up two lost asian hitchhikers. There were also two huge dobermans drooling down our necks from the back seat. This is still my favourite hitchhiking/backpackign in germany story ever. XD
  21. I'm a spoilt brat, i see it now. ^^;;;;
  22. My self esteem is right where my feet are. rock bottom ^^; 
  23. I'm what i call a neat freak susceptible to bouts of messiness. That is, i usually let the mess and clutter accumulate till I reach a critical threshold before i spend the next 5 hours cleaning obsessively.
  24. But i am most OCD when it comes to my mp3 collection. I've tagged and retagged each file meticulously, and i keep changing the system to make it more efficient. Which of course results in me only having tagged 30% of the collection at any time T_T
  25. I don't know what i'm doing, nor why i'm doing what i'm doing.
Ok that's it! phew. Um, tagging all who read this, i.e. [livejournal.com profile] bonedoll , [livejournal.com profile] avarisia , [livejournal.com profile] starlighter , [livejournal.com profile] loveclouds , [livejournal.com profile] simply_emotion , [livejournal.com profile] ky_rin

tagged by [livejournal.com profile] cimmerian_shade so here goes:


ROFL. so i randomly did this, and being i'd just come out of reading A/E fic,  i threw in their names for fun. And since my muse cds were right beside me, i put in muse songs too. XD

My thoughts on the predictions above:
1. DAMN right. JGL = <3 sigh
2. hm. possibly true. I am extremely doubtful of his screen persona.
3. not too sure about this. maybe....? O_o
4. HAHAHAHAAH. Arthur. knows shite about me. But i relate best with the Arthur character in inception, so i guess, semi true.
5. um. really?
6. ROFL. yes. JGL is a supermassive black hole because he sucks me in and i can't get out D=
7. kinda true. starlight is a rather romantic, magical song, and yunho's persona is right up there on the romantic front. so yes. rather true.
8. erm. does this mean my mind has rather anarchic tendencies or somethign?! ^^;;;;
9. semi true. but united states of eurasia is a very bleak viewpoint on the world ^^;;; perhaps i shouldn't have been so muse-centric... LOL

erm. tagging [livejournal.com profile] bonedoll , [livejournal.com profile] avarisia  i guess? LOL

[livejournal.com profile] mrfjurjur  just spammed me this video after I cross-spammed her with awesome Merlin/Arther fic. AND IT"S SO FUNNY!!! Random cuts from the Catherine Tate show. Features the Merlin actor, Colin Morgan, towards the end. That aside though, funny as hell:

"Did you hear about our John? He's a Gay Man now!!!"

Please watch. Especially funny if you read Merlin/Arthur fic. But nonetheless hilarious.


My fave bit was with the xmas present of chocolate cock:
"It's a penis, but you can eat it!" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Not to spoiler anything. Just had to come and say. Inception is the most freaking brillant mindfuck of a movie ever. It beats sixth sense hands down in mindfucking.

The premise blows your mind. And three hours after that, while discussing the finer points of the movie with a friend, we're still getting mindfucked by all the intricacies. So much so that i need to rewatch it. Because that ending just. Well. I need to rewatch to figure out exactly what that ending is. O.M.G.

best movie of 2010 so far. Best sci-fi movie ever, seriously. I love it to bits.

Cast and acting was brillant. And Joseph Gordon Levitt is so cute! He's kinda geeky and yet he gets all these cool action scenes. Pretty amazing scenes when Christopher Nolan says that the computer animation was minimal and most of the stuff in the movie was done by elaborate stage sets. O_O

Oh and my favourite out-of-pont-but-funny scene:
"People are looking! What do we do?"
-"Kiss me"
"..."
"Er. People are still looking."
-"well, it was worth a try anyway"

*squees and dies* cute cute scene. And no that probably won't spoiler anything =) 

a more proper movie review to come when i've watched it the second time, and most of the pple on this flist have seen it XD

There are times where i sit back and stare at myself in disbelief at how forgetful i can be. LOL

Case in point - Drove to work today, and just as I was starting to settle nicely in my office chair to enjoy my coffee, i realise i left my phone at home. Second time in a month, mind you. I never used to forget my phone before. O_O

Then, after work, I drive towards the gym, planning to get some paperwork for my membership. As i'm locking up my car, I realise i leave my wallet at work this time. *facepalms*

Morning:
Phone: -1
Wallet: +1

Evening:
Phone: +1
Wallet: -1

Net result: UTTER PHAIL.

lol. win.

Been putting this off for too long (cos i'm a terribly lazy person). So. Updates! =)

1. Been following the World Cup very VERY closely. Was totally over the moon when Germany trashed Argentina in the quarter-finals. Had never been on such a high over a world cup game. I guess it was the euphoria of seeing an eww-y team like Argentina get kicked out, and maradona's face (hate that guy). Also garnered a minor crush on Schweinsteiger, Podolski, Mueller and Oezil *sheepish grin* and discovered that the german football team has their own slash fandom in the likes of Schweinski - Schweinsteiger + Podolski. O_O Though real-person-football slash is really rather disturbing to even consider. So i shall, um, leave that alone. O_O

2. Then Germany loses to Spain in the semis. ARRRGH. IT WAS SO CLOSE!!! Still so sore about it! Granted Germany was too cautious, and not their usual self, which makes it worse actually. And that STUPID OCTOPUS. For those coming into the World Cup mania late, Paul the octopus is this stupid german octopus in some bar that has so far predicted every single germany game in this world cup accurately. Yes, including the spain win. It's almost hilarious when you think about how much hate/love one stupid octopus can generate. Though of course now it's more hate than love. Personally i'm looking for some octopus to murder eat. I'm sure for the next few days, octopus will be the menu favourites at restaurants. The distraught german fans though, have started singing Anti-Octopus songs. Yep, you heard that right. O_o Anti-Octopus songs! ROFL. I'm still looking for a video. Will be back when I find one. XD  The best comment of the day, though, comes from darling [livejournal.com profile] starlighter , "I BELIEVE HE SHOULD NOT BITE THE HANDS THAT FEED HIM!'  which sent me into fits of laughter after reading it. ROFL.

Anyway. germany better win uruguay now. Or i'll be PISSED. *rawr*

3. *ahem* world cup mania aside, it's been raining here. EVERY DAY. And NON-STOP. O_O I mean i like rain in copious amounts, but not when i have to wake up early in the morning to drive to work, and not when the rain floods out the highways. O_O Had my first taste of flooded -highway-traffic the other day. It was not fun. >.< And it's still raining! lordy. And the other day a cement truck fell over and dumped cement on the roads, so i had to take a detour in the rain which took an hour. Driving in houston really makes me appreciate public transport. At least i'm not wasting my time sitting in the car and not being able to do anything...

4. work sucks. big time. new boss now, new dynamic, but this dynamic in particular is really weird so i'm still trying to get my head around it. Also getting flooded with more work, and for the first time i'm starting to feel really stressed out O_O That i'm now the only female in my dept after my boss left isn't really helping either :( Miss home!

5. Been listening to alot of new music recently. Music recs to follow, when i have some time after the world cup to write something down.

Ok i suck at updates. Gomen =_= i think i should have renamed this a world cup post instead. XD

so A and I were talking the other day about this homin fic he was working on, and I was attempting to help him brainstorm. It was a fic where changmin works in this old bookstore, and yunho walks in one day... Naturally, put two homin fans, already high from all those hawwwt yunho pics, together, and you get some pretty amazing stuff. Also note that dearest A is AT WORK. =_=. Putting up excerpts of the chat here primarily because PL said 'do share'.  XDXDXD

in which famous books become bad fanfiction puns.. )
