toxic_corn: Rory cries manly tears at leaving the other Amy behind. (DW: rory - tears)
My heart. MY HEARRRRT!

The Angels Take Manhattan )
toxic_corn: uh, amy and rory on a motorbike? (DW: rory&amy - motorbike)
THERE we go! There's the show I remember! :D You had me worried there, DW!

Town Called Mercy )


The Power of Three )

So worth waiting for. I'm sorry I was grumpy about the first two episodes, Doctor Who. I'll never doubt you again. At least until not until next season. :D
toxic_corn: uh, amy and rory on a motorbike? (DW: rory&amy - motorbike)
Well. That was a thing.

Dinosaurs on a Spaceship )
toxic_corn: uh, amy and rory on a motorbike? (DW: rory&amy - motorbike)
So! I spent the day at a music festival to see Gotye (no Kimbra but the audience had her verse covered just fine) but I made it home in time to watch some new Who!

Asylum of the Daleks )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (david tennant turned on)
Is it weird that I spent 45 minutes on YouTube looking at silly 60s music videos? And I mean SILLY like Annette Funicello and the Beach Boys singing "The Monkey's Uncle" in the first three minutes of The Misadventures of Merlin Jones. I just like campy crap, okay? She loves the monkey's uncle, yeah yeah.


Day 28 - First t.v show obsession )

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (chipettes: eleanor - meme time!)
Woke up at 6:00 for no reason except my body didn't want to sleep anymore. I'm sorry you can't handle SHEER AWESOMENESS, BODY. :(

So now we play meme catch-up and maybe I'll update about my life later.

Day 16 - Your guilty pleasure show

As I think I've said before, I don't believe in the concept of guilty pleasures. Like what you want to like and if your friends give you crap for it, BFD. But I guess my answer for this is True Blood. When I met up with Hitch recently and mentioned that I enjoyed the show, she didn't say anything but she seemed disappointed in me, lol. So I guess I won't be joining the "cool" lunch table any time soon.

Day 17 - Favorite mini series

Stephen King's It, hands down. I watched it constantly as a kid and Tim Curry is the reason I'm completely terrified of clowns. Particularly male, red-headed ones. SO MUCH DO NOT WANT. Also, baby!Seth Green is in it and it was a funny realization to make as I got older to realize kid!Richie Tozier was indeed Scott Evil/Oz from Buffy/Kenny from Can't Hardly Wait/and so on. (Wasn't Seth Green in every single movie that came out between the years 1997 and 2000?

Day 18 - Favorite title sequence

Skins, Season One. Look at Cassie bouncing on the trampoline! Yay, Sid! Everyone looks so pretty! I usually skip the opening sequence of a show once I've seen it a million times, but not so with Skins. I keep watching it because I love the sadly whimsical music (and tap the air to the last little DAH DAH DAH DAH DAH part) and it just sets the tone perfectly. I love this show. (I'm stuck in Season Two, though. I know Cassie/Sid gets all fucked up and I'm scared to see it happen. *is a wuss*)

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (DISNEY PRINCESS: ariel - glasses)
In the latest wedding news: My mom and I went looking for a bakery today that didn't actually exist! Yet Map Quest gave us directions and we ended up circling around a residential neighborhood saying, "This really doesn't seem like a place for a bakery." We couldn't find the building number this alleged bakery was located, either. Kiss my ass, Map Quest.

Now to the meme!

Day 13 - Favorite childhood show )

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (DISNEY PRINCESS: belle - raspberry)
Funny story: I was getting fitted for my dress today, got overheated, and actually swooned in a very Victorian fashion. The mommies flipped and ran to get me bananas and water. At the time I felt like complete crap but it's funny now. I just have to wonder how the ladies did hot, stuffy dress fittings in the summer months WHILE WEARING TIGHT CORSETS. Sheesh. Nothing but respect to the Victorian ladies for not dropping dead like I wanted to.

Now we meme.

Day 12 - An episode you’ve watched more than 5 times )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (TB: bill & eric: disapprove sparkling)
No patter today, just meme. :)

Day 09 - Best scene ever )

Earlier days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (toxic corn)
Today I ordered my flowers and Mr. A and I agreed on our ceremony and sent it off to the officiant! The Bridesmaid From Hell upset me earlier but you know what? I'm not even devoting a paragraph to her, so she can just suck it. I should have kicked her out months ago when you all told me to but hey, live and learn.

Now onto the meme!

Day 07 - Least favorite episode of your favorite t.v show )

Earlier Days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (natalie dee: cute corn)
Meme catch up! Not as sad as last time since yesterday was a national holiday and all. I ended up going to see Get Him to the Greek. I don't care about your thoughts on Russel Brand but I like him. (His stand up and his role in films, specifically. His MTV award hosting gigs... um. No.)

Day 05 - A show you hate )

Day 06 - Favorite episode of your favorite t.v show )

Earlier days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (FF: jayne - the man they call jayne)
It's almost July and I'm bored right now so I figured I'd do that tv meme I've been meaning to do. Perfect since August will be way too busy for me to do a daily meme. :D Let's kick this one off, shall we?

Day 01 - A show that should have never been canceled

Firefly. I kind of didn't want to pick this one because everyone says Firefly should never have been canceled but when I think about what I'd pick instead, Arrested Development and Angel in particular, I realize that those had pretty decent runs with three and five seasons respectively. Firefly had an interesting concept, excellent writing, fabulous characters, and it was just plain fun to watch. It deserved a full season. (Though sometimes I think it's so beloved and admired because Joss didn't get the chance to fuck with it and torture his characters like an eight year old boy torturing an ant with a magnifying glass on a sunny day. I admire the man but Jesus Christ, he has some serious issues with just allowing people to be HAPPY.)

The rest of the days )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (DW: eleven - who dah man?!)
Well, I got around to watching New Who today. Pretty good considering I didn't wait a month to see it. :P I just have to say: Fuck you, Steve Moffatt. The writing is brilliant and I love the characters but GOD DAMN IT STOP SCARING ME. First the angels and then you have to throw in my horror of suffocating. What next, you're going to have a whole episode about clowns? DO. NOT. WANT.

The Hungry Earth Spoilers )
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (DW: the doctor: all of them)
Okay, so I'm saying flat out right now that Eleven more than makes up for all the shit we had to put up with under Ten's watch. SO AWESOME. Now I feel bad for purposely slighting Doctor Who yesterday in favor of Castle. I just wanted to save the episode for today so it could be a sweet Easter present to myself. And Eleven just may be my new favorite Doctor and I adore his companion. YAY, LOVING DOCTOR WHO AGAIN YAY!

By the way, happy Easter, all. I'm having dinner at the in-laws' tonight. Yay, good food!

And now we meme!

Day 04 → Your favourite book


A Little Princess. It always touches my heart and it's a comfort read for me. *hugs it*

Day 01 → Your favourite song
Day 02 → Your favourite movie
Day 03 → Your favourite television programme
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (FF: river - river is most awesome)
Day 03 → Your favourite television programme

In honor of Doctor Who returning, my favorite show:

Castle. Heh.

1) It has Nathan Fillion. Does Doctor Who have Nathan Fillion? Nope.
2) Castle has never ever disappointed me. Ever.
3) Stana Katic is made of awesome.
4) People don't seem to come out of the woodwork or go out of their way trying to spoil me for Castle episodes.

So, yeah, Castle wins hands down. Yay.

In non-meme news, I saw the re-make of Clash of the Titans today. In a word: meh. I wish I'd saved my eight bucks and skipped it. The effects were cool but the guy they picked to play Perseus couldn't have been a bigger tool bag than if they had set out to make sure he was the tooliest tool in all Greek mythology. Maybe re-casting him would've saved it but my heart belongs to the Harryhausen original.

Previous days:
Day 01 → Your favourite song
Day 02 → Your favourite movie
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (DW: marfa's stwong!)
So. How much do I love BBC America? A lot. It's so much more sci-fi than the Sci-Fi channel. (Oh, excuse me. Sy-fy. Ugh.) I can't wait until they start showing more Being Human. *bounces excitedly because I loves my vamp/werewolf/ghost show* But in the mean time, I've been distracting myself with Survivors. If you haven't seen it, it's basically Stephen King's The Stand but with British accents and everyone's terribly polite even though it's the apocalypse. Even the "bad guy" is polite in his own effed-up way. Plus MY FREEMA was in the first episode! I started watching it skeptically (as I usually do when I start a show for the first time) and I thought "Well, this is the UK. Maybe a name will pop out as familiar." Then there were the magic words "with Freema Agyeman." Then there was squee. Big time squee.

So the show starts up and I'm like "Where's Freema? WHERE IS SHE! Hey, that's Pete Tyler! Pete! How's Rose and 10.5 doing?? Where's Freema?! THERE SHE IS! Oooh, pretty dress! Squee! WTF Is that Protozoa?!"

Yeah. Three reasons to watch:

1. Freema Agyeman in a pretty dress.
2. Pete flippin' Tyler a.k.a Mr. Rose's Dad With His Own Blimpy World
3. ZOOM ZOOM ZOOM PROTOZOA!!!! (from the Zenon movies. c'mon, keep up)

I saw last night that they've added the second episode to On Demand so maybe I'll get watching that now. Does anyone else watch? I need my squee peeps. (Though this show seems odd to squee over since it's about like, 90% of the population keeling over. But I adore apocalyptic fiction. I'm sort of insane that way.)
toxic_corn: Summer Glau is pretty. (TB: bill & eric: disapprove sparkling)

In case anyone missed it, I got a fic meme in progress. If there's anything you want me to write, speak now or forever hold your peace. There's six more slots left so head on over and request something. If it's something that fits within my abilities, consider it written. So far I've got a Chuck/Nancy Drew crossover, Doctor Who, Angel, and of all things The Princess Bride. Challenge me! :P (So long as it's something I have knowledge of. I can't write Numbers fic or anything anime, sorry.)
