...THIS. THIS MUSIC VIDEO. IS SO, SO AMAZINGLY AWESOME.

But you will probably only agree if you like (or have at least seen) Fight Club.

...Which...if you haven't, you need to go fix that, STAT.

...My Boba Fett fangirling (...uh...so would that be a FETTish? /SHOTSHOTSHOTlol) goes up about a hundred notches every time I watch this. And in my mind, only the awesome and utterly badass Fett of the first three movies + the EU novels & comics exists. That whiny, annoying brat in the new movies? DON'T KNOW HIM, WHO IS THAT, NOPE NO IDEA NO NONE.

WE DID IT OH MY GOD OH MY GOD THE US TEAM IS INTO THE NEXT ROUND. \o/ \o/ \o/

I WAS SO WORRIED no one had scored and it was getting SO close to the end of the game and I knew we would be OUT if we didn't win because England already had a point in their match and we didn't WIN that last game because of that stupid ref, so a tie wouldn't cut it unless Slovenia got a point and tied with England too which didn't seem likely, but OH my God, THANK HEAVEN FOR LANDON DONOVAN. 91st MINUTE GOAL FTMFW. I, I don't even HAVE an icon happy enough for this, but this is roughly what is happening in my heart right now


only with balloons and streamers and 400x the energy


OH and what's more, we won our group! That hasn't happened in...forever, ahaha. 1930, according to some news articles, but YEAH same thing. Oh, but seriously guys, I am in tears right now, I am so, SO happy, and I almost never cry over anything.

Plus England is second in the group, which also makes me happy! Though I'm sure they're rather annoyed to be second to the Yanks, especially since they are ALL about the football over there, and we...are still sort of not...at all. COME ON AMERICA, TAKE THIS GAME MORE SERIOUSLY, IT IS AWESOME!! But then again, the idea of a grumpy England makes me...mostly amused, but also a little happy, too, so. |D

AND NOW I SHALL CROSS MY FINGERS AND ROOT FOR MY SECOND FAVOURITE TEAM, GERMANY. YOU GOT THIS, GUYS. GET OUT THERE AND KICK SOME ASS.

LMAO OKAY SO

I downloaded this huge-ass file of screen caps of Tales of Vesperia ~First Strike~ and I’m not even very far into them yet but HOLY BACKFLIPPING ELIJAHBUGS I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT WAIT TO GET MY HOT LITTLE HANDS ON THIS MOVIE. There’s already been some Back to Back Badassery from our boys, and at the point where I’m at there’s what looks to be a BAR FIGHT, which Yuri seems to have started (OF COURSE, because he is one Grade-A instigator |D) and Flynn QUITE FIRMLY finishes and alsdkfjALKJFLSKDJF; AHAHAHAHA I LOVE IT ALREADY. X’DDDDD

…Also, Yuri is insanely cute/pretty/hot/moé. But I knew this already. |D

…And this talk of ToV reminds me of this, which I KNOW I mentioned and meant to post…forever ago actually, but. I don’t have ALL the quotes I want for it yet, but I do have some. I’ll get the rest on my second play-through. |D;


...SO, I’ve decided that really, Tales of Vesperia is all about ALIGNMENTS.

D&D Alignments as seen in Tales of Vesperia! )

EDIT: I have it from reliable sources (a couple of them, actually) that the movie...sort of RUINS EVERYTHING and pays NO attention to all sorts of canon things and just...all-around FAILS, REALLY, so...IDK if I'm gonna watch it anymore....though the BAR FIGHT thing still totally cracks me up and YEAH I'll...probably end up watching it anyway and then HATING MYSELF AND THE PRODUCERS/SCREENWRITER(S) AND JUST THE WORLD IN GENERAL for a while afterward...

THIS BOOK. OMG THIS BOOK.



It's been out for a while, I know, and I've been wanting to read it for MONTHS now, but I only recently got it through the library system because there was a waiting list, and none of the bookstores around here had any left, so I resigned myself to waiting since I had other books to read anyway. Anyway, I just started last night and am almost done, and OH MY GOSH, I LOVE IT SO, SO MUCH. It is a beautiful, beautiful thing. The existence of a "Reader's Discussion Guide" like those found in so very many classical works is just priceless. My favourite questions are #7 - "Does Mrs. Bennet have a single redeeming quality?" (Answer: DOUBTFUL, AND LEANING HEAVILY TOWARDS NO.) and #10 - "Some scholars believe that the zombies were a last-minute addition to the novel, requested by the publisher in a shameless attempt to boost sales. Others argue that the hordes of living dead are integral to Jane Austen's plot and social commentary. What do you think? Can you imagine what this novel might be like without the violent zombie mayhem?"

Oh, but truly the most MOVING part of the book is when Elizabeth and the Gardiners are touring Pemberley, and happen to be set upon by a wandering horde of "the unmentionables", and while Elizabeth is fighting them off with a makeshift quarterstaff (not her best weapon, but she'd left off her katana, as wearing them about was not considered ladylike), WHO should arrive but Mr. Darcy, who with a few well-placed musket blasts frightens off the zombies and SAVES her...and then, after making careful & polite (& somehow more gentle-seeming than before, oh swoon!) inquiries as to her health and her family's well-being, leaves his Brown Bess in her arms and rides off. Oh the SYMBOLOGY SYMBOLISM! Oh the tenderness, the subtle concern for her life! Mr. Darcy, you truly are every woman's dream!

Though, ya know, the scene where Darcy first proposes and is super condescending about it, and Elizabeth jump-kicks him in the face and into the corner of the mantelpiece, (which shatters from the impact) is pretty hot. So maybe that's my favourite. IDK I LOVED IT ALL.

LOLOL I AM ACTUALLY GLAD THAT I'VE READ THE ORIGINAL NOW. I HADN'T THOUGHT THAT WOULD EVER BE POSSIBLE. BUT IT MAKES IT SO MUCH FUNNIER. And I might actually have developed some small bit of affection for the original, which is even MORE unexpected.

Hell yes.

My brother and I went to see that movie together at the cheapsie theatre sometime in June. We actually sort of got in trouble for it, because apparently the parentals had told him that he wasn't allowed to go. But when I said, "Hey, wanna go see 300 with me? 8D" he failed to inform me of this. A brat after my own heart, hmm. I have taught him well.


Oh well. He's 17 and I'm 22, so whatev, we're allowed. And I liked it except for the whole stupid orgy thing. Srsly, wtf.

OMFGYES.
