I still love Man of Steel fight me internet.

Sometimes I wish fandom wouldn't make me hate the MCU. "Wow it's so progressive!" "Look how relevant and deep this is!" is getting more and more difficult to parse every day. And nothing is me ingratiating than people telling me how valid it is and how it applies to my life.

Because apparently everyone on the internet is American.

What if all I want to do is talk about my beyblade feelings???
quixotic: Fandom | Ava's Demon (lol to you)
- Going for the Murdoch course! I will pay for it tomorrow ahhh so nervous god.

- Stopping my meds means my junk food cravings have come back in full force. I feel like a glutton.

- Awkward feelings with school! But, meh, as long as I stick by the teacher I like to work with (and she likes me too!) I ain't gonna make a fuss.

- I found Dune fic on the internet! GOOD DUNE FIC. As in, not written by me! Do you have any idea how monumental this is. Ahhh. I read it all afternoon and it made me so happy and the things I would do for a Dune cast, a dune anything these days, guys.

- Writing in patches, which annoys me, but writing is writing. I might do another writing meme just to dabble here and there.

- I rewatched Stardust lately! And I had forgotten what an enjoyable movie it was. I'm not sure what the book is like (and frankly, I don't care either), but the movie is something I could easily watch a lot just for the sake of entertainment. Because it is pure entertainment. I think this weekend I'm going to sit down and watch Constantine and An American Werewolf in London. Both are relevant to my interests and I haven't seen them in a while.

- Guys, I could listen to this forever. I just. I love covers like this. Someone get me all their albums.

- Did I mention I found good dune fic? This is like the highlight of my life right now.

- Still trooping through Pokemon. It's amazing when I replay this game that I start to remember my old tactics and still find new things that get me hooked. Because seriously, whoever invented that game knew exactly what he was doing.

- I should also rewatch Star Trek. Just because.

- I have my own computer! Granted, it's my dad's old one, but who's complaining? Not me, man.

So my cranky levels are off the charts. Therefore, to temper that, let's do a meme I never did but I enjoy!

- Got into Murdoch/Kaplan's Bachelor of Psychology! 

- Might also apply to British Council's teaching courses to pass the time.

- Need to get a job!

- Need to write more.

- James Cook University is having their open day tomorrow! sob so much for my free time this weekend.

- 66/100 icon slots filled!

- I said this on my lj, but I fucking love Supernatural.

- Watched Prince Caspian! Which I enjoyed! I really do like what the movies have done with the books, because face it, as much as I loved the books, character development/substance wasn't very strong in the first two (but great in the Dawn Treader, so if Hollywood fucks that one over, I'll never forgive them for it :D). Reepicheep was suitably badass, Peter the prick was delightful, Edmund was adorable and I really wish I could like Susan more but I just can't seem to.

- One of the things that I thought about recently and it used to crop up in fandomsecrets a lot was the argument about westerns playing eastern characters/countries/etc. And I talked about this with a few people about how bizarre it was to me. I'm from the East! I've lived my entire life in the Easter hemisphere! Yet, I am more inclined to playing Western characters. To be fair though, I had a strong anglicized background which ostracised me from my peers for about... a good twelve years of my life. I have lived a life being a part of both worlds and never truly understand either one completely. I wonder what that says about me....

- Gosh, DW giving me paid time was a great ploy. :( I want to update every hour because of my new icons.

It's funny how little things do still get to me. And while,  I get them under control, most of the time, I'm easily upset. I've learned better, to rationalize and waits things out. I have patience and I've learned to judge things equally. But sometimes,  and I suppose it is the same for all of us, that when someone has a negative opinion of a thing they love, it hurts. I've had people come to me and say there's nothing they love about SPN and well, SPN isn't in any way perfect, it's riddled with flaws, but I love it! And it hurts to hear things like that.

People are never the best judges. What other people love can be what other people hate. I'm guilty of it too when I talk about things I dislike. Hell, doesn't everyone bash Twilight? Even though we may have never read the books at all? I guess it applies to RP too, in its own way. I really want to change and stop disliking things because I don't understand them. I'm not sure if I can, but I'd like to. Maybe if I can make that small change, other things can change too. 

It does make me miserable when people can't enjoy what I can. I guess, in a way, it makes me feel like I've failed somewhere, that I'm not able to share it.

I've always wanted to ask people; who do they consult when they feel insecure or lost?

When people watch Bollywood movies, they would know that we consult a brahmin to check the auspiciousness of the days and through his own craft (which I'm not sure of the details, so I will avoid commenting on it). You'll find that even my life doesn't escape this little detail of seeing our fate in the stars and whatnot. My parents, modern and accepting people that they are, pay a psychic to check our house.

Yes, a psychic.

We've had feng-shui experts come through as well, to see if our furniture is not disturbing our sleep or not. You cannot come to Singapore and escape feng-shui, guys. You may never see a direct sign of it, but it's everywhere. Nothing is built and placed in Singapore without that simple fact. Isn't that amazing? I think it is. I also think it's somewhat frightening how important it is.

So, how is it done in the West? Is there anything similar? I honestly do not know.

In other news! Sometimes, I feel like a failing fail thing. Like I play deep and insightful characters! From developing and ongoing canons! And people have so much to say and it's all very interesting and I feel I just... come short. I don't know what to say! I just have a deep and simple joy when it comes to things. I don't think, I just enjoy. And it's making me feel a little miserable that it's enough? And it shouldn't be? Idek.

After watching the amazing mafia adventures of Jim "Cannot Drive To Save His Life" Kirk and  "Why am I with this man" Spock and then onwards to great escapades with a giant amoeba and proving that yes, Jim and Spock are very, very gay, the next episode pleasantly surprised me.

Sex pollen.

It exists.

quixotic: Fandom | Ava's Demon (If you glanced my way)
Spock - It has to do with ... biology
Kirk - what biology?
Spock - VULCAN biology
Kirk - You mean.. .the biology of Vulcans?

Ladies and Gentlemen. The bestest and brightest of Starfleet. WE ARE SAFE IN THEIR HANDS.

I blame Star Trek videos for any bad music tastes I have recently acquired.

Britney Spears damn you.


also I want a premium megaupload account so I can download these TOS episodes faster. Though I'm starting to see how slash was born from this canon. Because seriously Spock, I get Kirk is in danger but you do not need to beat the woman with your fists. The part that really cracked me up was.

Scotty - I just sent the phaser rifle. Did you get it?
Kirk - What phaser--[Spock walks in, armed with a large rifle] . . . Affirmitive.
Spock - :|

I should make TOS icons. And someone tell me if Shatner qualifies as a good or bad actor. Because I honestly can't tell anymore.

Edit - Screw it, I made them anyway :(

So my thoughts on Transformers Animated!!! Well, not really since I can ramble about everything in Animated ever. Lockdown's betrayal for money! Starscream's need to defeat Megatron! Lugnut's gay! Prowl being a Discovery Channel fan! Bumblebee failing at life! Well, okay I did write an essay about Bumblebee and the finale and whatnot already (conveniently located here BUT WATCH THE SHOW FIRST!)

But some other thoughts! I was rewatching Along Came a Spider and a lot of thoughts revolving Optimus, Sentinel and Blackarachnia came to mind.

  • I like that during an Supernatural hiatus/interval, my downloading craze exponentially increases to the point I have documentaries on my hard drive.
  • I am a dork and I spend ridiculous amounts of time with [personal profile] comfortingsounds about Kirk and Spock and them being Kirk and Spock and I feel like one of those overly anxious fandom people who has no idea what they're talking about but it's hilarious to watch anyway.
  • I've been rewatching M*A*S*H and Radar is basically what I am if I was male. I'm not sure whether this is a good or a bad thing. But he's adorable anyway (and if any of you guys call me that, WE WILL HAVE WORDS)
  • Life is... tiring right now. Work and study and then maybe some RP but even so, it's become hard and grating.
  • Transformers Animated finale made me cry worse than any TV show or movie I have ever seen. I'm not sure what to think of this.
  • AHHH SAINT SEIYA WILL BE OUT SOON OMG AHHH. Oh wait. No one cares. :((((
  • TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN WILL BE OUT SOON I just want to see if they truly added Lockdown in there. Lockdown my one true rapist raburabu. I hope he steals the pants off every human in town. (And he would too! BECAUSE HE IS AMAZING!!)
  • Every time I fangirl, I feel like I should be adding a note or a "BEWARE/CAUTION" sign. I'm trying to get out of that mentality and I suspect I'm not the only person who feels that way. 
  • Two Steps from Hell - Freedom Fighters has been on my playlist for two weeks nonstop. This is terrifying.
  • I finally read the Antique Bakery manga! And then the canon doujinshis that came out with it. I was so close to crying. Out of all of them, I play the most mentally damaged one. Of course.
  • I think I've read every single prompt on the Star Trek kink meme. You may judge me now.
quixotic: Fandom | Ava's Demon (Look at those camera flare)

  • Aerrow/Dark Ace [Storm Hawks]
  • Casshern/Dio + Casshern/Lyuze [Casshern Sins]
  • Spike/Vicious [Cowboy Bebop]
  • Virgil/Richie [Static Shock]
  • Oz/Gil/Alice [Pandora Hearts]
  • Speed/Trixie [Speed Racer - movie]
  • Hotshot/Blurr [Transformers Armada]
  • Bumblebee/Prowl [Transformers Animated]
  • Optimus Prime/Sentinel Prime [Transformers Animated] (though I guess you could... add Blackarachnia there)
  • Ike/Reyson [Fire Emblem]
Man, there's a lot more giant robots in there than I thought. Oh well. I'm totally up for discussion too!!
