You know what makes me sad? That artists don't do kick-ass music videos anymore. Or just plain beautiful ones, like this one from George Michael:

Embed of George Michael's Freedom! behind the cut )

Okay, so nothing really happens in it, but it's pure eye candy! If there's one thing that will never go out of style, it's eye candy. Try to remember that, music-making people. *watches the eye candy again*

Yesterday a little storm came by in Finland and everybody was like ASGFASDGSADG.

Tame stuff in non-Finnish standards I'm sure, but holy moly! It passed over my neighbourhood too and I've honestly never seen anything like it before. So damn beautiful (lightnings! damn why didn't I have any idea where my camera was?), but also awing. But so cool! (Said she who never lost her electricity.) Pictures here, my personal fave is this.

Friends- and reading listers, I thought this was a good time to let you know that you're all awesome and wonderful people. ♥♥♥

I have things to share!

- This post is a description of my life. I'm actually okay with this.

- For Mad Men-fans and friends of clothes, be sure to check Tom & Lorenzo's (who run an awesome blog about fashion and TV-shows) series on clothes in Mad Men and what those clothes tell about their wearers. Awesome stuff.

- My 750 Words process keeps on being a process, and after last week's break of the word dam in general this week was all about my creativity dam breaking, which means I have finally reached that stage again where I don't hate everything I write. YES! \o/

- Thanks to this I'm finally, FINALLY getting around to posting my woefully late [ profile] help_haiti fic, after which I'll write the other stuff I've promised to people. A lesson learned: Don't participate in these events gain because this is PATHETIC AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED, SELF.

- I've been riding on a massive emotional roller-coaster for, like, forever, ranging from life changes to a long-time identity issue, but now things are starting to click in place. I feel extremely great over this.

- Will get around to posting the posts for my latest meme (LJ/DW) as well as the memes [ profile] mrasaki tagged me for a long time ago (seriously, who is late in doing meme answers?). But in order to aid myself in getting rid of the "never post anything ever" habit, here is a 30 Days Of TV Meme.

Day 01 - A show that should never have been cancelled )

Rest of the days )

Does anybody have any recs for stomach-friendly recipes, blogs/sites with recipes or eatable things in general? Something low on gluten/lactose would be especially nice since I seem to have lost my tolerance for bread. :\

For those who were wondering, the last night's post was a result of frustration with school and work things, ear infections that will apparently haunt me forever and bad judgment. I locked it away from further embarrassing me.

However, it and the entire Three Weeks thing made me realize something: Whether it's on LJ or DW, I still have no clue what exactly I want to use my journal for.

More thoughts )

So there was your daily dose of navel-gazing angst. Here, have a sweet little Single Ladies-parody.

Look at that unimaginative title. I'll blame it on my swollen ear.

Anyway, today I'm just going to plug the following post: No country for strangers by [personal profile] ephemere, which is about things you need to be willing to deal with and think about if you want to write about other cultures. It's very good to read.

Two things:

1. In real life, I have been working on the final paper for my bachelor's degree ever since last year, and after several exhausting months it seems to be finally on its way out of my life. My thoughts about this can be summed up as YES.

2. The paper also turned me into a fannish zombie for, like, months, so what better way is there to get past that than jumping on the bandwagon and participating in [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw! That means posting DW-only stuff during the next three weeks, which will include my long overdue fic commitments (such as my poor [ profile] help_haiti fic and the flister requests). Also, responses to any prompts I get for the following meme:

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on alfalfa, favourite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other. Fannish topics welcomed. Affectionately taken from [personal profile] the_wanlorn.

Whether this will lead to me finally becoming an active person on LJ/DW/general blogosphere remains to be seen, but now I can say I've taken steps.

..but before that, here's one of the best things I've seen lately.

So, apparently I'm in the mood to get patted on the head.


I'll also be posting a meme and other stuff in the future, but here are some drabbles I've written for this request post. Just links 'cause I'm lazy.

Final Fantasy VI, Terra, tights

Angel, Cordelia Chase, we're all pretending

Deadwood, Joanie Stubbs, mad hatters

Final Fantasy VIII, Rinoa, bravery

Lost, Juliet, what she wishes she didn't know (WARNING: Spoilers for S6!)

I have few more drabbles to go for this post, then the requests for this post, then my [profile] help_haiti fic (this will be done before the former, sorry), and then I think I'm going do more writing memes. I'm trying to be on the roll this year and all.

SRS = The slash debate that is going on makes my head hurt. It's not a nice feeling.

LOL = So, Avatar is Pocahontas in Space?

This vid thought so too!

All the Avatar-experience you need? Possibly.

ETA: ..and the fact I linked that is very Clueless and White of me, NOW that I think of it. Sorry.

Less than two hours to 2010. In celebration of that, have the most horrible macro of ALL TIME.

See you all next year!

In mood for a list? Check out The 50 best protest signs of 2009. This one here is my favorite:

Canon in full sense of the word, folks.

I also have a meme.

Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile" (or if you're X-File-y, "Resist or Serve").

• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions

I got this from [profile] mrasaki, who gave me the following questions:

1. What was the first fandom you were ever in, and were you active in it? )

2. What is your favorite food? )

3. If you could live anywhere in the world and at any time period, where and when would it be? )

4. You've written quite a few FF7 fics. What do you think of all the FF7 sequels and their effect on FF7 fandom? (Advent Children, Crisis Core, Dirge of Cerberus) )

5. What is your favorite book, magazine, or comic? )

Today, after months of alternating between misery and not giving a damn about anything, I'm finally having a good day.

Warning: One of the pictures in this post is NSWF. Watch out.

So. Christina Hendricks, totally hot, Y or Y?

Y! )

Meanwhile, Olivia Wilde has been in entirely different kind of photoshoot. The kind of photoshoot that makes me think "that's so tacky", but..

VMA 2009

The first consequence of hanging out at [ profile] ohnotheydidnt all the time: hunting down stuff I didn't care much about before, like clips for the latest VMA Awards. The second: Discovering nifty new Twitter-accounts, such as Pink's. I mean just this tweet:

"I won a home made moon man made by carey hart for "best use of an ex in a video" You shouldve heard my acceptance speech. It was AMAZING"


Brief thoughts on Madonna, the MJ tribute, Kanye vs. Swift & Beyonce, Pink, Lady Gaga )
bofoddity: (Default)
There might be good consequences!

..well, depending on your definition of good, of course, but that second picture HAS to happen.

ETA: Well, this I'd say is pure horror.
bofoddity: (Default)
The Good: Awesome beginning, definitely want to play more!

The Bad: It took just a minute for the motion sickness to kick in.
