fightingthecage: (Gene - Basically God)

I say life update but really, there is very little new to report. Evie has turned from a little girl that behaves nicely into a fully-fledged independant Person who just happens to throw a screaming fit if she doesn't get what she wants - on one hand, this is a nightmare but on the other, I'm glad she has her own mind, obviously. She's a bit better than she was a month ago so that's good.

Babydaddy and work are of the same old same. Ditto: mother (halp halp, she's coming up next weekend). I am on the verge of quitting my job but need to find something part time and flexible to replace it before I go anywhere. Bleugh, boring. Moving on. *washes hands of*

Fandom is what's fun at the moment! M'ways obviously (always awesome) and my new one, Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes. It's quite rare these days that I like a show enough to delve into the forums but there you go, it can't be helped in this case. I am quite disturbed by the strength of my attraction to a racist, sexist, homophobic, slightly overweight middle-aged man. But then, good guys are boring. I like Sam Tyler - hell, I even quite like Alex Drake these days - but I'm quite happy to watch their stories once and leave it at that. I compulsively rewatch only for Gene who I have decided is the person actually in control of the whole universe.

There is possibly not a single person on my flist who still watches this show so I'll shut up now.

I am so behind on 24 that I think I'll just d/l the eps and then marathon them at the end of the series. I was sad to discover the other day that this'll be the last but not at all surprised either. Movies though, yay! Hopefully that means Jack won't die at the end? Facebook totally spoiled me for the Renee thing though I have no idea how it comes about, so I'll look forward to catching up with that.

SPN - I still have last weeks ep to watch but I'll wait for tonight's now and watch them together. Am very excited about the ending of this season!

Fuck, I am so boring these days. SIX WEEKS UNTIL DOWNLOAD, BABY! That is going to be a weekend of such ridiculous excess, it'll fill all my non-boring desires for the rest of the year. I am determined to Make This So. Do not ask how, for I shall plead the fifth, but just trust that I'll be behaving exactly like a 31 year old mother shouldn't. :D!

OK, I need to go get my Gene-Genie fix. And then possibly start this fic that wrote itself in my head the other night. And reply to tags, hell yeah.

fightingthecage: (SPN - Sam in Trouble)

I am very confused with the ending of last night's SPN. Like, so much so that I'm sitting here making a 'bzuh?' face at the screen. Though I suppose that could also be down to LJ's current fuckwittery re: working properly.

I don't even know )

In related news, a few days ago I saw a few minutes of a S1 ep that's showing over here at the moment and oh my God, I can't believe how skinny and young Sam was in it. I mean, I knew he bulked up a hell of a lot and grew his hair out etc but wow, when you watch some of S5 that day and then get faced with what he used to be, it's like two completely different people.

Also also also, wtf is up with LJ tonight?
fightingthecage: (SPN - Dean Fuck Yeah!)

'Six degrees of Heaven Bacon.'


fightingthecage: (AC/DC - Hell's Bells)

Was Thursday's episode of SPN the best ever made? QUITE POSSIBLY!

And I can't be bothered to write any more than that. Frankly, that statement should speak for itself.

In other, better, news; I have a new guitar.

...that doesn't quite do it justice.

I have a Gibson SG. A Gibson motherfuckin' Special SG, only in Heritage Cherry and it is second only to my little daughter in beauty and perfection. If I could find my camera-->computer lead, I'd upload a few dozen photos so that everyone could bask in its gloriousness.

If anyone needs me, I'll be over in that corner right there with bleeding fingers and a headache.

Omg, it is so perfect.
fightingthecage: (AC/DC - Hell's Bells)

So, for the last two weeks I've been idly going, 'hey, isn't SPN supposed to be back early September?' and then not following up on it. Until today, when I discovered it was back last week and promptly went and downloaded it.

And then watched it, which is the proper order of things.

SPN, 5x01 )

Why am I not surprised that SPN is the thing to get me to make a post again? Idek. Whatever; is it still on Thursday nights? For example, tonight? If so, hurrah!
fightingthecage: (SPN - Dean Fuck Yeah!)

The 'Thoughts' of the title really doesn't deserve the capitalisation. I'm really just musing out loud.

Spoilers )


We have a cut for this too )

And there was something else but I forgot, so keep an eye out for ETA II: The Revenge.
fightingthecage: (SPN - Demon!Dean)




Is it Thursday yet?

OK, a bit more coherence now I can think straight )

I'm going to talk about the preview now, briefly - I'll whitetext for anyone who doesn't want to know.

Preview whitetext )

I am looking forward to seeing where all this goes. Yes.
fightingthecage: (Footy - Becks)

I forgot to say in my earlier post - British SPN fans who don't own the boxsets but would like to...go to ASDA! They're on sale for a tenner. *happy to have S2, gutted 3 had sold out*

On Thursday, I won £10 on a lottery scratchcard. Yesterday I won £6.10 on the Euromillions and tonight I won £10 on the regular lottery. GO ME! Maybe this means my luck's in and I'll win the £110 million up for grabs next Friday (seriously, how can it be clever to gve that much money away to some random person? Though I wouldn't complain if it's me).

Ah fuck, there was something else as well but I forgot. Mentally writing LJ edits/updates in my head makes me fail because somewhere in my subconscious I tend to think I've already updated for real and so discard the info. Which leaves us in a situation like now, where I had something to impart (can't promise it would have been interesting) but now it has gone. Oh well. Worse things happen out at sea.

On a random note; with Dreamwidth being, like, a day old now, who wants to take a guess at how many Harry Potter RPG's have already sprung up? Or just RPG's in general. There's bound to be a whole load of people who want to be able to say, in five years time, 'We were the FIRST EVER *insert fandom here* game on DW!!!1!' and lots of people will wonder what DW was like all those years ago when no one knew what they were doing and there was no adverts on your journal pages.

...OK, I don't know where that came from. Time to watch some football. Three weeks until United become Champions again, WOOHOO!

Omfg SPN. Like, seriously.

fightingthecage: (SPN - Castiel)

Today I caught up with SPN...and not much else. Which is pretty pathetic seeing as I was only three eps behind and had a whole day to do other productive things like catch up on 24 as well. Productive things being asdflksajdf coursework, but I'm over it. This essay is never going to get finished and I will fail blah blah blah only not.

Unproductive days make me tetchy. I wish I could enjoy them but I really don't. Perhaps its because there have been so many recently. Whatever. Loved the last three SPN eps! I will probably write something more susbstantial on them tomorrow or after I get tonght's ep but it's late and I have to crash after this.

I have a long post to write that I've been meaning to do for about six months. I'll get on that after the essay is done. I also am dying to watch Quantum of Solace and the two Che movies but that will also have to wait until after the essay. FUCKING ESSAY FUCKING FUCKING FUCKING ESSAY AND ITS GODDAMN LAST THOUSAND WORDS.

I am stressed and have no right to be. Bed it is!
fightingthecage: (SPN - Tinytext!Dean)

SPN FANFIC READERS! I need your help. What's that fic that everyone always raves about, from Dean's POV when he's a kid and a bunch of it is when they're staying at Bobby's. I can only remember random details, like when he calls Sam, 'Sammy baby' to wind him up and something to do with...being under the porch? I think that's right.

Anyway, it's awesome - I know that much because what I do remember overwhelmingly is the atmosphere of it. I can still feel that, even if I don't remember the details of the story itself. Has anyone got a link to it/knows the one I'm on about? I need to read it again and I also heard that she wrote one from Sam's POV too - need to read that also!

fightingthecage: (London - Underground & Big Ben)

Ugh. There is flailing about SPN all over my flist and I can't read any of it because I haven't seen the ep yet. I have it, I just have to wait until mother has gone to bed before I can watch it. I WANT TO WATCH IT NOW!

I am ill. Yay two days off work! But BOO, ill. Killer sore throat and head, no energy, asleep all the time etc. It would have to happen on the one weekend a month I work. The weekend that massively ups my paycheck and hours worked. *sigh* Can't be helped. I went in this morning (nearly drove off the road on the way there) and could hardly stand up. So, went home. This is the fourth time I've been ill in the last four weeks. I SUCK! On the upside, I'm using it as a good time to give up smoking.

OK, nothing else going on. I have nothing to do and am bored. Bleugh. Perhaps should eat something.

SPN 4x09 )

In other news - Esther, I totally forgot about the CD and am just about to crash. Will sort it out for you tomorrow, promise!

ETA: More SPN stuff )
fightingthecage: (Default)

I'd forgotten what a drag transferring stuff on to a new computer is. Not that I'm taking much because I don't want Jonna all filled up with crap (we'll see how long that lasts) but iTunes for a start - I dont even know how to do that, actually. I haven't changed a computer for six years now I come to think about it, I have no idea how to deal with all of this. AND I DON'T CARE BECAUSE I HAVE WIRELESS INTERNET! And a Blu-Ray DVD drive etc etc. Jonna is the new love of my life. :)

SPN peeps on my flist who have Show wallpapers etc - where'd you all get them from? I want a different one from my old computer and something totally badass (i.e beautiful, angsty and fairly minimalistic usually works) Is there an LJ comm somewhere for such things?

I have homework to due tomorrow and haven't done it. This is becoming a theme recently and I sort of can't bring myself to care. Hmm. Worrying. Or not.

Anyhoo. Ugh. Might have to go to bed. Yuk.
fightingthecage: (SPN - Closeup Dean)

I just watched last weeks Supernatural. All I can say is I'm damn glad I waited this long to watch it because now it's hardly any time at all until the next one. EEE! It was awesome.

Another point I meant to make after the first ep this season - wtf is up with Jared looking so big? He used to be slim/muscly and kind of lanky. Now he looks like a bodybuilder. Bleugh.

ETA: OMFG, Castiel was in 24. I totally didn't recognise him with short hair! And he's hot now when he was completely ugly before. What is going on with the world?

fightingthecage: (SPN - Closeup Dean)

Is there new SPN yet?

ETA: Clearly I meant to add AVAST, YE HORNSWAGGLIN' KNAVES, YE! to that.
fightingthecage: (Angus - Rocking It)

Ahhh Eurovision. I wish I cared.

All hail to Ebay. I just snagged myself S1 of Supernatural for a tenner. Score! And I even decided to brave the scares and start watching that season again - am pleased to report that so far, after three episodes, I feel none of the terror that plagued me the first time. Also score! I am also reminded of how absolutely amazing the lighting is in S1. I love the...I don't know what it's called...the way everything is kind of steely, y'know what I mean? Also, Sam's hair isn't annoying me so much this time round and it's nice to see Sam and Dean's relationship again with the benefit of experience.

The other day I had a whole rant planned out in my head about the recent fandom wank and people's reactions to Dean's treatment of women. Alas, I am too tired to actually post it but maybe I will tomorrow. It got me quite worked up at the time.

It is not quite eight and I am about to go to bed. What an exciting life I do lead. To all the new friends I have acquired today through the back room thingy, hello! I will probably post an 'about me' thing sometime over the next few days so that there is some context for my ramblings. I promise I will try and be concise (ha! Not sure I've ever been concise in my life, but I'll try).

Yes, bed. Tonight I sleep the sleep of the righteousdead.
fightingthecage: (SPN - Dead!dean)

So obviously, I have to ramble a bit about the SPN finale. But first I have to say something that just occurred to me - this finale has made me love this show. I liked it before and enjoyed it and would definitely watch all of it to see what happened etc. but I didn't feel any particular deep attachment in more than an occasional or abstract way. Now? I love it. Maybe it's because the boys are split up now and couldn't save each other for once. Maybe it was them singing Bon Jovi together, I don't know. But I'm finally invested and its awesome.

OK, enough random thoughts. I can't remember most of what I wanted to say anyway. Bring on S4!
