They’re building a Stargate!
I love, love, love, love, love, love, love fandom. I know that if I ever accidentally do something stupid, there are always people out there more pathetic than me. It’s not H/Hr shippers in general that are delusional, it’s just you. XD
Petition Spot: Harry and Hermione are destined for each other.
Caved to peer pressure and threw my name in the Snaps Cup.
Zounds. Not only has Serenity just broken into the IMDB Top 250, but it’s currently topping the Sci-Fi charts, as well, nudging Star Wars out of the top spot. And all this before entering distribution! Mmm, heresy sweet heresy!
I’m torn between “But Serenity is fantastic!” and “But it’s Star Wars!” It’s also in 2nd place on the 2000-2009 list, second only to “Return of the King”. Of course, I’m not deluding myself. I’m sure a number of fans have given it a “10” before they’ve even seen it, and however awesome the movie is, I imagine the score will change when it reaches a wider audience.
Still, I feel a “BOOYEAH!” is appropriate.
*snorks* Meghan posted this link in the comments, and I want to make sure everyone sees it. Summary Execution: Greatest Hits!
Best Serenity review EVER. No spoilers, contrary to the warning at the top. Registration required, but it’s free and takes no time at all, and worth it to be able to read this review! *dies laughing*
Zounds! My blogger post count just started working again, and apparently this will be the 5005th entry in “Cult of Lincoln”! That definitely merits special recognition. And to mark such a momentous occasion, I will post a meme. Ganked from everybody.
Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that’s your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc.
I have a ridiculous number of icons, so I’m only posting the highlights:
Andrew Wells (Buffy)/Anthony Crowley (Good Omens) — they try so hard to be evil!
Charlie Pace (Lost)/Cordelia Chase (Angel) — There’s something satisfying about the way their names sound together.
Darth Vader (SW)/Dawn Summers (Buffy) — Hah! Well, she already had one crush on a guy that was evil, but turned good.
French Taunter (Monty Python)/George W Bush — Quite possibly my favourite pairing EVER
God (Monty Python)/Gollum (LotR) — Kills me dead.
Harry Potter/Hermione Granger — About as likely as any of the rest of these pairings! *ducks*
Kaywinnit Lee “Kaylee” Frye (Firefly)/Kip Dynamite (Napoleon Dynamite) — Fed up with her inability to connect with Simon, Kaylee finds someone so open with his feelings that he will compose a song for her upon their wedding!
Mooch (Mutts)/Nagini (HP) — though I think a relationship between an evil snake and a lovably dimwitted, naive cat is doomed from the start
Napoleon Dynamite/Princess Leia (SW) — HAHAHAHAHA.
Spike (Buffy)/Spongmonkey (We Like Tha Moon) — Well, fans have paired Spike with everyone with or without a pulse. It was inevitable.
RAGE. Went back to work on the QSA site, which I had been putting off for most of the summer, only to find that on my new laptop, I don’t have the main font I used for the layout, and that the only FTP program I have that connects with their finnicky server is the one that crashes my computer if I use it for more than a few minutes at a time. And I just wiped my old laptop THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY.
Does anyone have the font TrajanPro Regular? I don’t want to have to pay the $22 to get it again.
Session 22, the next Serenity viral marketing clip. Heartwrenching.
Plus bonus spoof from online comic Checkerboard Nightmare.
(Also, The Signal #8 is out!)
An excellent review of Serenity from a Firefly virgin. Makes some interesting points about sci-fi and CG. Mild spoilers.
Also, Serenity wins the Edinburgh Film Fest Audience Award.
