Stick and his purple stick

(no subject)

I totally fail at LJ now. :-( Tumblr is just so easy to get swept up into. reblog Reblog REBLOG!

How much do I fail at LJ? In my saved draft, I bemoaned the fact that the Kings kept losing. Since I wrote that, my precious bbs won the Stanley Cup. Whoops! At least it had a happy ending, right? I went to both parades and the rally at Staples Center. Here are a few pics from the rally and two sets of pics from the beach cities parade (1, 2).

I went back to the Redondo Beach pier today, in fact. And while I was standing in line at the parking lot pay station, this lady blatantly cut in front of me! I couldn't believe it at first, but since I was going to the beach to relax, I didn't want to damage my calm by calling her out on it. Anyway, when she got to the machine, I noticed that she was planning to stay at the beach for 4 hours, a fee which amounted to $8, but she slipped a $20 bill into the machine. She became baffled when the machine spit out no change, turned around and looked at me and asked how the thing gives change. I shrugged innocently and pointed to the sign that clearly states that the machines give NO CHANGE, read aloud what the sign stated, so she left after overpaying by $12. Too busy cutting in line that you forget to read the fine print? Priceless.

Having (more) oral surgery in two days. Nearly liquid diet for the next week. Funtimes!

Well, HI! I keep meaning to post, but life gets in the way.

Slowly but surely catching up on Arrow. Still really fun.

Definitely looking forward to The Flash next season, what with Jesse L. Martin (does this mean Wally and Bart are/will be POCs?) and 90s TV Flash, John Wesley Shipp joining the cast. 90s TV Flash had a great theme song (seriously, if I didn't use the Superman theme for my mom's ringtone, I'd use that one because she has always loved that tune).

Gotham with Ben MacKenzie (Southland) as Jim Gordon will most likely get a try from me, too.

Rather interested in the NCIS spin-off with Scott Bakula, Lucas Black and CCH Pounder because I love those three. Can we maybe have some Creoles in a show based in New Orleans for once, though?

Saw my precious bbs on ice (YOUR LOS ANGELES KINGS) two weeks ago. They lost the game, but that was okay because they hardly ever play the Penguins in Staples so it was a real treat to see most of my favorite Pens (not counting Pascal Dupuis, my mom's fav, who has been on LTIR for ages, or Kris Letang who had a stroke that day apparently poor thing, or Marc-Andre Fleury who wasn't going to play a back-to-back, which aww I wanted to see Flower in net). There were tons of Pens fans in the audience--the Pens Fan Couple sitting next to me and the Pens Fan Guy in front of me who was there with his Kings Fan Girl were very nice and funny. It was especially amusing when the Pens Fan Couple next to me started chanting "Go Pens Go" when the score was getting out of hand and the Kings Fan Girl in front of me gave them the Death Glare. Took a few crappy pics of Kings Kopi, Quickie, Stick and Carts, Dewey, Reggie, and Willie when they played the PenguinsCollapse )

GUESS WHAT TIME IT IS?! GUESS. WHAT. TIME. IT. IS. OLYMPICS TIEM JEAH! Of course, if you've been following my Tumblr, you already know that I'm a huge fan of everything Olympics (even when it comes down to mundane IMPORTANT things like which NHLers are roomies). Seriously, I love all Olympic sports, summer and winter. And I follow most of them even when it's not an Olympic year, so no fair-weather fan here. FLAWLESS QUEEN MERYL DAVIS AND REAL LIFE DISNEY PRINCE CHARLIE WHITE FOR ALL THE MEDALS!!!!

Festive Lois & Clark

(no subject)

Mellow greetings, yookie-dookie! It's almost New Years, but I'm still clinging to my holiday icons because I haven't posted enough this month to use them all.

I'm excited, as always, for the Tournament of Roses Parade tomorrow morning, followed directly by the Winter Classic.

Here"s our Christmas tree this year.Collapse )

My brother has decided to gift me a collection of Disney vinylmation toys over the past few years. Yesterday, he gave me this one!Collapse )

And as I'm posting, I hear fireworks in the distance, so I'm guessing it's now 2014 on the West Coast! Happy New Year, everyone!

Christmas shopping: CRUSHED IT.

Saw Community's Joel McHale at The Grove yesterday while shopping. He's really tall.

Went to Big 5 today to look at some gift ideas and saw a lady buying a bow!

Also saw The Hobbit. Overall, I enjoyed it, though I definitely liked some changes better than others (ie., I was disappointed with this Beorn, but idec, I like Tauriel and Bard). The Smaug sequences were beautiful. KEEP CHEWING ALL THE SCENERY LEE PACE! In conclusion, Legolas/Gimli 4EVA!

Watching the new season of The Sing-Off. The groups I liked best from the beginning--Home Free, Vocal Rush and Ten--are the last three standing, so it's all good.

Now I'm going to get under the covers and watch some Kings hockey. Maybe I'll make some hot chocolate with whipped cream between periods. Ooooooooooooo.

It's been over a month since I've posted, so I figured it was about time I checked in. Now what to say?

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! Mine was exhausting since I had to take the lion's share of cleaning and cooking with a bonus dentist's appointment in the middle of it all, and by the time everything was ready, I could barely enjoy the fruits of my labor. Have you ever worked so hard to make something, and when it's finally ready, you don't want anything to do with it? You're just so done? Anyway, my aunt brought a cake from our favorite bakery. She requested that it say "Gobble," you know, like a turkey, and what she got was icing FAIL:

Friday, the Christmas tree lot down the street got its first shipment of trees!

My brother went out for dinner at some scene restaurant in Beverly Hills with a gal pal of his, and a producer guy at the next table kept trying to chat him up and even bought him a drink. Bro said the food was meh, but they did see Common.

I saw a guy who looked like a better-looking Robert Pattinson. He had to have been a model with that alabaster skin.

Ca-razy football games on Saturday! 'Bama lost! :-O Ohio State barely won! USC song girls remain the quill! But seriously, I am so glad the BCS is gone after this year. If Alabama is left out in the cold when it comes to the National Championship, I can't help but think they could have beaten Ohio State, at least. Auburn played a really great game, though, and before that last play, I said to my mother, "You know, Alabama better watch it because if something goes wrong with this kick, Auburn could somehow get that ball and they just may do something with it." And you know what? They did.

I'm behind on all my shows. Trololololoooooooo!

Very shocking to hear about Paul Walker's passing. Even more unsettling is the fact that I was in the middle of reading a FatF fic when I paused to check Deadline and saw the news.

Stick and his purple stick

(no subject)

Oh dear, I haven't posted in over a month. It's just so much easier to keep up with fandom by reblogging pics and gifs on Tumblr than it is to come up with full sentences on LJ. Where else can I so easily find pics of Future Superstar Seth Jones or gifs of Ichabod vs modern techology?

Anywho, I'm all aboard the Sleepy Hollow train (it's not perfect, but it's a lot of fun, and I get to see Orlando Jones on my teevee every week), I've only seen the first two episodes of S.H.I.E.L.D. (with minimal motivation to catch up on the rest), also behind on Person of Interest (though I did enjoy the premiere), and I'm still totally excited about Arrow and Elementary. The character stuff in Elementary remains so satisfying.

My brother gave me this! \o/

If random idiots think whistling is going to get me to look at them, they have another thing coming.

My mom and I met my grandmother and aunt for dinner the other night. The TV and film talk was great, as always (my aunt's thinking of auditioning for RADA, just for kicks), but I had to put her off from matchmaking again. When we got home, Mom told me not to take the matchmaking seriously. My aunt just wants me to be happy, but my mom understands why I'm not interested at this time. Though it was amusing how she was trying to pin-point my "type," when I don't really have one. "Smart and funny" is so general, you know?

Someone stole our green waste bin. Who does that?!

I HAVE OBTAINED KINGS TICKETS!!! Lower bowl, across from the Kings bench, for their game against the Penguins in January. \o/ Merry Christmas to me. Next year, I'll want to see them play either the Bruins or the Red Wings.

Who else is excited at the prospect of seeing Johnny Football getting clobbered by 'Bama on Saturday? ::crosses fingers::

Had some time this afternoon, and while I wanted to go to the Kings' first training camp, I knew it would be a zoo at the practice rink (last year it was SRO), so I went to the beach instead. Took a few pics because why not.

Pacific Ocean, woo!Collapse )

The new television season is nearly here! \o/

The new hockey season is nearly here! \o/

So I'm sure if you're on Tumblr, you know about the whole flower crown thing. Well, the cast of Hannibal is so obliging to fandom's whims: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Laurence Fishburne, and Caroline Dhavernas.

The cast of Game of Thrones season 4 hanging out. What I wouldn't give for a Varys & Shae drinking buddies fic or ALL the Jaime & Brienne modern AUs. Tywin and Cersei go on vacation!

What's this flotsam about Stargate possibly being rebooted? ::looks skeptical::

My parents and I are something like three weeks behind on Suits. Our enjoyment of the show has really waned since sometime last season.

My aunt finally showed me her pics from SDCC. She took the cutest picture with Orlando Jones. Cannot wait to see him in Sleepy Hollow!

Yay Stan Wawrinka!

If it wasn't so hot, I'd want to go to a Dodger game.

"The Fox" by Ylvis. I lost the will to can when the fish go blub.

What is going on with this weather?

Woman goes on a date with her catcaller. Eek. And what a coincidence because I was catcalled just last week. My most memorable catcall was back in college when this guy who looked like a bean pie salesman yelled out at me, "Hey, Pocahontas!" Charming.

God, I love my family. Met up with the extended fam on my father's side because an aunt and uncle are in town (they've moved a zillion times, but at the moment they're living in Texas. Other than the people, they like it). My uncles are the most hilarious people ever. My cheeks hurt from laughing so hard.

Okay, CBS and TWC. My patience is starting to run out. Get it together.

Person of Interest 3x01 preview. \o/

College Football's 100 Greatest Things. My alma mater performed well in their first game, making the proper adjustments at halftime, but they have a somewhat difficult schedule and a number of untested players, so we'll see how the season goes. ::sings:: It's the most wonderful tiiiiiiiiiime of the yearrrrrrrrrr!

Ben Affleck is Batman. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Acting-wise, he peaked in Voyage of the Mimi.

Agent Carter.

Got to push a car yesterday. Funtimes. I had music from Little Miss Sunshine suck in my head for the rest of the day. That movie will always be close to my heart because when I was a kid, my family had that same exact minibus, in yellow, and we used to have to push it sometimes. I'll always remember eating Fedco pizza in it, too. Oh, Fedco. My favorite watch I got a Fedco. I was even more disturbed by the looting of Fedco during the 1992 riots than I was about being stranded in the middle of it (::thinks:: no, I take that back).

And ugh, third time in my life I regret not continuing a conversation. Why is it attractive gentlemen tend to approach me when I am unprepared! I'm so often caught off guard when I'm in my whatever jeans and whatever shirts and flats with no makeup and grocery shopping or whatever (I guess it's because I look more approachable/attainable ::shrug::) and not "on." My default is always "No," then I quickly walk away, and then later, I mentally kick myself and wish I'd had a witty rejoiner (which of course I think of after the fact). And it's not that I can't flirt. I can and I do. The timing is just unfortunate, so I guess it wasn't meant to be. I'll probably never see you again, Man with Attractive Stubble. ::pitiful wave::

So sad to hear about Rizzoli & Isles' Lee Thompson Young passing away. What a shock. :-(

Hawaii Five-0 casting news. My aunt worked with this person once. Said she hoped this person had a therapist and/or some meds.

My bro brought me two large posters from work: one from The Wolverine and the Charles Xavier one from X-Men: Days of Future Past. His boss took got first dibs on the Magneto one.

Loving the Little League World Series, as I do every year. Those kids are so adorable.

And we're nearing the US Open and return of college football (ie. my favorite time of year)! \o/

I know I had more to post about, but now that I'm actually here, I can't remember any of it!

I'm one of those lucky Time Warner Cable customers who has no CBS or Showtime stations. Awesome. ::thumbs up:: At least I was able to watch yesterday's Dodger game on ESPN, since our local KCAL station (owned by CBS) was blacked out, too. As long as they get this resolved by the college football season and the new primetime season (Person of Interest and Elementary, in particular), I'll survive. I think. ::crosses fingers::

So, new Doctor. I like the actor, so that's cool. Is it odd that I don't have a favorite Doctor? To me the Doctor is the Doctor is the Doctor, and I like them all equally. Stephen Hawking, and of course Helen Mirren, are awesome for making it known that they wanted a woman Doctor. Moffat gets negative eleventy-billion for saying more stupid things (and yes, he has said stupid things before). Please quit while you're behind.

What else is new what else is new? Oh! Saw Tim Robbins the other day. He almost tried jaywalking in front of us. ::wags finger:: He was going back to the Actor's Gang, where he is Artistic Director, I imagine.

Also, the stitches in my mouth have started falling out. They were the disolvable kind, so yay. And the swelling is nearly non-existent so no more chipmunk!shadowhuntress.

Ian is all alone

(no subject)

Oh, I haven't posted for over a month. Whoops? Anyway, the most exciting thing to happen to me over the past month was getting my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday. It didn't hurt at all because my oral surgeon was very good with the local anesthetic (I didn't like the idea of being knocked out or using laughing gas. I hate not being in control of myself, which is why I've never been anywhere close to being drunk and drugs have never been remotely tempting), but I am still swollen on my left side, and if I get too uncomfortable, I can take Vicodin, but I'd rather not if I don't have to. The rest of my "free time" has been taking my father to his numerous doctor's appointments. Funtimes.

The Dodgers are actually more exciting to watch lately.

I feel like Suits is getting especially convoluted and soapy nowadays. Or was it always soapy and convoluted, only I just didn't realize it? For the last several episodes, I've felt as though I'm catching the show halfway in, even though I obviously haven't. They do get points for all the GoT actors, though.

Has anyone watched Endeavour? I like it a lot. For some reason I've become absurdly fond of Jim Strange. And Roger Allam is always fabulous.

musesfool linked to some interesting Arrow meta about Felicity Smoak.

So happy to see Chris Froome win the Tour de France this year. I like him better than Wiggins. It was great seeing Jens Voigt riding so well this year and for Cavendish to lose some sprints, too.

The Kings 2013-2014 schedule is out. I'm hoping to get tickets to Kings-Penguins in January, and if I can't swing that, then maybe Kings-Bruins or Kings-Red Wings.

Also, I had no idea how much I smile and laugh throughout the course of a day because it's been really hard not to while it makes my mouth sore to do so. In other words, I need to get off Tumblr now.

Ugh, loving all the Captain America: Winter Soldier set pics popping up over the past few weeks!

One of the many reasons why Hannibal fandom is the best. If you don't get it, go here. I'm currently only one episode behind on Hannibal, which I'm saving for Friday, when I can watch it back-to-back with the season finale. LOOOOOOVE THIS SHOW. It's so unusual and fascinating. Hannibal is so manipulative, and Mads Mikkelsen tears it up in every scene. It's also a who's who of Bryan Fuller projects, including two favorites of mine, Eddie Izzard and Raúl Esparza.

Every synonym for "pass" Doc Emerick used during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals. Well, I said in one of my last posts that the Bruins could give the Blackhawks a hard time, and that's exactly what's happening. We'll see if the Hawks can step it up, find some open ice (somewhere), and change the tide here. Ideal scenario for me is for the finals to go to Game 6 wherein the Bruins win.

WOOOOOOOOOO! The Los Angeles Kings and defensemen Slava Voynov agree to a long-term deal! Also, got a new Kings shirt today.

And because it's totally random: CENTAUR JAVERT fanart.

Next time I'll talk about Man of Steel, I think.

This game. ::throws up hands:: I did not want a Game 7. Just for that, I'm going to go eat dinner.

Lt. Nate Fick

(no subject)

A few things I forgot to mention in my last post about the Blackhawks-Kings series: First, after all the struggles Toews and Kane had making a real difference in the playoffs, it seemed only fitting that to make it to the Stanley Cup finals, it took a huge Tazer-to-Kaner goal, giving Kane a hat trick. If that doesn't give them both a boost in confidence, I don't know what would. And that's what I want in a final--two teams confident and healthy. Then we can see who really is the best team this year.

The second thought I had about the Blackhawks-Kings series was about post-game handshake lines. The way a team conducts themselves in the handshake line says so much about their character. You may be devastated by a loss, but for those few minutes you have to look every competitor in the eye, shake his hand and say something gracious. When the San Jose Sharks lost to the Kings, Sharks captain Joe Thorton wouldn't even look at or talk to Jonathan Quick. What kind of an example does that set for your team? On the flip side, when the Kings lost to the Blackhawks, all of the players who were particularly contentious during the series had nice chats together. Greene and Shaw shared a laugh (the hits between those two, OMG!) as did Richards and Bolland (Bolland gave Rick a concussion, putting him out for two games) who had a nice long chat, while Carts looked like he finally accepted Duncs' apology. Even Quickie and Kaner had a nice smiling conversation. It just raised the already high level of respect I have for both teams.

And two last little thoughts: back in the locker room, Justin Williams looked like he was going to cry. :'-( Oh, and I wish we had enough cap space to lure Bickell to the Kings! Hey, I'm all for poaching. ;-P

I also forgot to mention how much I liked Djokovic's court kit at the French Open this year. That blue-grey-green shirt he wore perfectly complemented the clay at Roland Garros.

Tony Awards! Neil was great, as always. Well, hello there, Rory Pond! So glad to see Cicely Tyson and Cindi Lauper win. Also glad to see Stark Sands so energetic and in good voice for Kinky Boots. With that huge smile, the longer hair and without the helmet, he looks so much younger than his Lt. Nate Fick from Generation Kill (::points to icon::). He can work some kinky boots, too. And his co-star and now-Tony winner Billy Porter had such lovely things to say about him. I'm usually neither here nor there when it comes to Pippin (except for "Morning Glow," loooove that song), but I would totally see this production. Patina Miller is fabulous, baby, and Terrence Mann, that is all. My mom was happy to see the cast of Cinderella perform "Ten Minutes Ago." She loved the Leslie Ann Warren version of R+H's Cinderella, while I was obsessed with the Brandi version from the late 90s. I was also happy to see women win Best Direction for both a Play and a Musical!

When it comes to this season of Game of Thrones, I have never been so glad to have been spoiled for a show in my life. a thing or two about the Game of Thrones finaleCollapse )

It's my birthday in two weeks, and for once when my parents ask what I want, I actually was able to think of something! I've always hated sandals and probably haven't owned a pair since I was a kid because it felt somehow immodest to show so much of my feet in public (I didn't even feel comfortable allowing any sort of cleavage to show until after I'd graduated from college, so yes, I'm slow when it comes to this sort of thing). Anywho, at long last, I was ready to branch out and find some tasteful sandals I liked, hopefully with leather uppers and cork heels or wedge. As luck would have it, I came across these and they look sorta 40s what with the flower and are both adorable and comfortable. They didn't have my size at the DSW in Marina Del Rey, so I went to the DSW in the South Bay, and the only pair left just so happened to be in my size! Serendipity and Happy Early Birthday, me!

Ah, my mighty Kings have fallen. :'-( Not unexpected, what with all the injuries (and that's not including the Kopi injury that we haven't received any information on), but they didn't go down without a fight (double-OT, baby!), and all their fans are so proud of them. I had to wear one of my Kings shirts today to support them in my own little way. Considering how run down the Kings were, the Blackhawks-Bruins will be a much better final than a Kings-Bruins one would have been this year. I can't help but wonder if the Bruins might steamroll right over the Blackhawks as they did the Penguins, though. Wasn't that nuts?

Woo, congrats Rafa and Serena on their wins at the French Open this year! I'm glad Serena beat Sharapova, but I'm always a bit sad to see David Ferrer lose. He's not a flashy star, he's just a journeyman tennis player, and I love him. That Rafa-Nole semifinal was incredible, though. When I have $80 to spare (haha), I want to get one of those big Roland Garros umbrellas.

Ugh, SO EXCITED for Man of Steel, you guys! I know a lot of people hate Superman, but my mom's been a huuuuuuuge Superman fan since forever (Superman and Thor are her two favs), so I was never not going to love him, too.

Planning to catch up on Hannibal today (after the finale of Game of Thrones, in 10 minutes).

Dear Hockey Gods, please let the Kings win this one game, and I won't ask for anything else this year. Thank you. Seriously, I like every other team that's left and would be okay if the Kings lost to any of them...except the Sharks.

All caught up on Arrow and it remains my favorite ridiculous yet exceedingly entertaining show! Arrow, season 1Collapse )

Hannibal fandom on Tumblr is the greatest thing ever. That show's next on my list for catching up.

On my way to In-N-Out the other day, saw the floating promotional Arrested Development Bluth's Original Frozen Banana stand. The line for frozen bananas went around the block. Got to In-N-Out and some employees were pretty much blocking the door trying to figure out what the fuss was about. I explained it to them just to get them to move. Don't get between me and an In-N-Out shake on a hot day.

Also seen on that street corner: a dog wearing sunglasses. Unfortunately I couldn't get my camera set back up again before he trotted away.

It's been an exhausting few weeks, so I watched The Avengers today to relax. It definitely made me feel better.

Still haven't seen Star Trek Into Darkness yet, but after reading fandom's opinions, I know to go into it with significantly lowered expectations. :-\

I am all caught up on Elementary now and OMGGGGGGGGGGG U GUISE! Every time I think Elementary can't possibly get any more awesome, IT DOES. I LOVE EVERYONE AND I LOVE EVERYTHING THAT THIS SHOW IS. EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY. EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING. ELEMENTARY IS EVERYTHING AND EVERYTHING IS ELEMENTARY. I was trying to think of a way to explain how this show is so emotionally rewarding, but I think this gifset says it all (column one is from the premiere, column two is from the finale). If you want to know how Holmes and Watson get from point A to point B, WATCH THIS SHOW. DOOOOO EEEEEETTTTTT.

I am also all caught up on Person of Interest and OMGGGGGGGGGGG U GUISE! Random thoughts here we go. JOSS CARTER! Anyone else hoping for a road trip? SHAWWWWW! Finch flashbacks breaking my heart! REESE AND FINCH! Who is that?! THE MACHINE!!!! Cannot wait for next season!

Next up: catching up on Arrow and Hannibal.

Wow, some of the officiating in this NHL postseason has been atrocious! And I don't just mean in Kings games.

Extended trailer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!

Trailers for Almost Human and Sleepy Hollow! I am so on board with Almost Human. Who can resist Karl Urban and Michael Ealy? And it looks very high-quality all around. For Sleepy Hollow, I'm just overjoyed to see Orlando Jones on my teevee. Love him.

It was so hot yesterday. Thank goodness today it cooled off.

I am so nervous about tonight's Kings-Sharks game. I think I'll just look at more gifs of Chris Evans cracking up with Anthony Mackie on the set of Captain America: Winter Soldier.

(no subject)

The Ducks were totally disappointing this year, keeping us from the first Ducks-Kings playoff Freeway Series and forcing the Kings to play the Sharks next. They're just lucky I quite like the Red Wings (I ♥ Zetterberg and I ♥ Datsyuk), or I'd be more peeved about it.

OMG, did you see that Bruins-Leafs game yesterday?! I thought it was over, but thankfully we kept watching, and the Bruins made a stunning comeback. I like both teams, unlike my brother who was rooting for the Leafs, so I just thought it was incredible. I'm sure the Bruins fans who left because they thought there was no way their team could come back are kicking themselves.

Saw Iron Man 3. How fun! My bro took me to the 10:40pm showing on Thursday the 2nd (I like that they're showing "midnight showings" starting at 9pm nowadays) and we were THE ONLY PEOPLE IN THE THEATRE so we didn't have to whisper our comments to each other, then I saw it again with my mom the next week. It was such a Shane Black movie. LOVED all the Rhodey and Pepper and Jarvis.

Plan to catch up with the end of the season of Person of Interest and Elementary today. TWO HOUR season finale for Elementary this week!

Can the Khaleesi, Margaery and Brienne just rule all of Westeros already?

Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuck Niiiiiiiiiiiiight! Go Stick Go!

Agent Smith

~Everyone hates the cave people.

It's still a little hard for me to accept that there's no such thing as getting "caught up" on Tumblr. I went through 200 pages of dashboard, and for me, that's the equivalent of 24 hours. I am officially tumblred out for the week.

Thor 2 trailer!

So, I've been catching up on Arrow, and OMG THIS SHOW U GUISE. The guest stars and recurring cast is fabulous--Harry Dresden, Captain Jack Harkness and River Song, Lincoln Lee from Fringe, Crixus from Spartacus, Cam Mitchell from SG-1, Mehra from SGA, Baltar and Helo from BSG, Jackson from Teen Wolf, and the list goes on. Oh! And David Anders. Can't forget about him. Seriously ugh, look at these dorks (1, 2).

The more trailers and clips I see for Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel, the more I flail. CANNOT WAIT!

My Kings are killin' me here! Do you not want home ice? Carts lost some teeth, too (the tweeter is his gf). :-(

Agent Smith in a GE commercial. Wha?

I forgot to talk about Person of Interest in the last post! Anywho, Person of Interest 2x19Collapse )

No new eps of POI or Elementary for weeks? What is up with that?

(no subject)

Yesterday was the worst day I've had in a long time. Nothing went right. The only good thing about yesterday was the weather. Wind on Monday made it so clear in the L.A. Basin. But today was a new day. I'm on LJ, I made a new icon ::points at Stick::, and now I'm eating chili.

The Big Dance was great this year. Upsets, excitement, and a worthy winner. You could tell from the first round that Louisville was going to be a contender. And this year's "One Shining Moment" was lovely as (almost) always. Here are the editions of "One Shining Moment" from the past 10 years or so. The only one I didn't care for was a few years ago when they used a version of the song by Jennifer Hudson, which would have been perfectly fine if they hadn't kept cutting to her singing the song in the studio. Sorry, but OSM is about the tournament, not about the singer of the song. Thankfully, they only did that the once before going back to Luther Vandross' version.

Sad to hear about Roger Ebert. :-(

SHIELD casting news!

A compilation of information, casting and a promo pic for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Excellent Elementary casting news! Love her! I really need to go find some fic. I haven't looked since the beginning when pickins' were pretty slim. I don't know why everyone ever isn't squeeing about this show. Every time I think it can't get better, it somehow does. Case in point: this last episode.

Where on earth do they get the fabrics for the costumes in Game of Thrones? Did you see that gorgeous dress Sansa was wearing in this week's episode?

Saw the first episode of Hannibal. I liked it, but maybe that's just because I'm a fan of Mads Mikkelsen. And according to the season preview at the end, the series is going to be a veritable who's who for previous Bryan Fuller projects.

I am officially obsessed with Duck Dynasty. I blame my brother and my mother. I couldn't get away, and now I'm hooked. The mall echoes. A redneck minotaur! Hey!

Hello, my lovelies!

Last Tuesday I went to my first hockey game! Kings vs. Coyotes, which turned out to be a bit of a thriller, though the Kings came out on top in the end. Even had they lost, I still would have had oodles of fun. I can see why people get season tickets. Who knew going to a hockey game would be the most relaxing thing I've done in the past few years? If I had the expendable income, I'd go to every home game I could possibly attend. I took some terrible pictures of Justin Williams for my mom, some more terrible pictures of Anze Kopitar for my brother, and a few more terrible pictures of CarterandRichards for myself. I'll try to post a few next time, unless they look even worse on my computer screen than they do on my phone, in which case I'll keep them to myself.

Poor Sidney Crosby!

And poor Kevin Ware, the Louisville basketball player who broke his leg during the game yesterday. Everyone was pretty distraught after seeing that, but I was happy to see a picture of him on crutches after his surgery this morning. I'm pretty much rooting for any team but Syracuse to win it all. Other than that injury, the Big Dance has been overall pretty great this year, with exciting upsets and teams stepping up when they need to.

Oh! And I'm finally all caught up on Person of Interest and Elementary, and could those shows be any more wonderful? Is Bear not the greatest addition to POI (and Leon, too)? Watson is the best and Holmes is the best and I ♥ them soooooooo! New episodes this week! \o/

destina posted a Ten Commandments drinking game. Well, I have been known to say "Oh Moses, Moses!" in RL on occasion. ;-P

My aunt and her SO went to WonderCon this past weekend. Lucky.

Game of Thrones is back!!!!! ::JOUSTING AND CRYING:: Love them Tyrells.

And speaking of Person of Interest, if you haven't watched talitha78's Reese/Finch vid, Lights, you must do so immediately! If you watch the show, it'll warm your heart, and if you don't watch the show, it'll make you want to start!
