Today was a a bit of a shit day.

Then I won a $500 gift certificate to whereever I want.

Then I saw New Moon.

Now I'm drunk.

Now I'm going to watch Project Runway.

Today? Has been okay.

It's nice to know that since Amanda Bynes isn't working right now she has OODLES of time to update her twitter. All day. Every day. Quotes and RTs and tweeting back and whatnot. Seriously.

In OTHER news, I FINALLY bought Doctor Who season 3. Now that I've put some time between when I watched it and now I'm missing it and I think I underestimated it a bit. Martha's still my least favourite companion, after how much I loved Rose and before how FUCKING KICK-ASS Donna was, but I'm ready to go back and appreciate Martha.

ALSO. NEW RPATTZ/KSTEW PHOTOSHOOT. Um, I would link it but the comms I'm in have locked posts and I'm lazy and going to bed ASAP. But yes, check that shit out. I'm going to become less sheepish-eye-rolly about my like for Twilight now. Sorry. It's just gonna happen for awhile. Especially since I BOUGHT MY TICKETS FOR NEW MOON WOO! I almost missed them, though. I went to get them online BUT the site said they were sold out. I had to call the theatre instead (which is not an easy task, given the calibre of employee they have there) to ask if there would be a second show. They said the late show wasn't sold out and voila! I went to buy them at the box office and now I have them.

I should check them just to be sure they're the right ones, now that I think about it. Again, calibre. *shakes head*

And I'm SO EXCITED to go to sleep. Oy vey.

Tell you friends, spread the word.

I also created [livejournal.com profile] good_twicons ... um, awhile ago, but I'm actually going to finish the comm now. If this is the bulk of my fannish involvement right now I'd like to go all in at it.

Feel free to watch both comms, spread the words, yes.

I've been watching so much Doctor Who today and it's awwwwesome.

The more I see about New Moon and the closer the premiere comes the more excited I get.


Shut up.

I realized that the issue I'm having with my regular caps can't be because of my graphics card, I don't think. When I cap my regular weekly shows often I get a lot of caps that are horribly pixelated and sometimes I have to re-cap the show as I go. But when I do these movie trailers I do a straight export from Quick Time so I can get so many for animation purposes and they're fine. So I don't even know.

I have no idea what to try next. Ugh.

The VMAs were certainly full of interesting things tonight. And that was all without Britney being there! Short words on the stupidity of Kanye )

Of course, as soon as I post the other Youtube caps for the New Moon trailer, they come out with the hi-res version. Woot, though!

I'm liking the look of this one SO much better than Twilight. I don't like it when my movies look like selective colouring threw up on a cap before I've even touched it. I think it'll be easier to differentiate the humans from the vampires in this one, as well, since the pale vampires won't look AS PALE without that ugly blue sheen over everyone. They'll be pale, Kstew will be more normal coloured and it'll all work out. I hope, anyway.

Some of the caps are frame for frame and that's why there's so many of them. So they'll be great for animations!

I know there will be a hires trailer out tomorrow, likely, but I didn't realize that until AFTER I'd gone through the process of capping this from youtube videos.

So I've got the teeny version introduced at the MTV Movie Awards, including teeny tiny caps of Rpattz, Kstew and Taycob doing the intro. Then I've got bigger caps from a youtube source (I don't know what the etiquette is on linking Youtube vids but since some from the Awards have already been yanked I'm not linking them to reduce the trail) AND I have the cop-out-kiss from Rpattz and Kstew.

I want to write fic nowwwwwwww.

None of them are great quality, but reduced down for icons they should be okay.

Spoilers, obvs.

I'm up to four times watching this since yesterday now. And might be up to five by the end of the night if I can't find anything to watch.

I do this with Transformers sometimes, too. So... I don't think that's crazy?

... Yeah, okay. Just keep moving.

I watched Twilight three times today. Once to cap it, once with the commentary on (which was part lolarious, part awkward and weird--seriously, RPattz didn't even remember half the plot or why things happened and the director, Hardwicke, was kinda spaceage herself, but in a blonde way. KStew was the one who came out of it rather shiny and pretty. I don't think Hardwicke knew that RPattz and KStew were srs actors for half of filming and then srsly stoned for the other half when they realized they couldn't be srs actors about it) and then again when there was nothing on.

I am Twilight!drunk right about now. I want to write RPattz/Kstew fic so badly right now it's eating my brain. And I want to make icons. And... yeah.

Addictive!crack is addictive. And cracky. And sparkling.

Iron & Wine music meme snagged from [livejournal.com profile] wherethewind

Music meme, now with dl'able music! )

So [livejournal.com profile] machiiina did this meme: Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given. and I bit. These are the things she gave me.

Supernatural - involving unspoiled S4 spec, new!ruby, etc )

screencaps )

horror movies )

Lily Allen )

Canada )

Oh. Drew Barrymoore is apparently in talks to direct the third Twilight movie. Brace yo'selves.

And this is the comment I made to the [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt post regarding Rihanna and CB reuniting. Fuck, I hope it's wrong.

I really hope this is fake. I know, People is reliable, blah blah, but I really hope that they jumped the gun and it's wrong.

If it is true (and I'm expecting it is) it becomes a particularly frustrating situation for people watching this incident, fans, friends and family all inclusive.

Yes, this is an abuse case and this is something unfortunately typical of people in abusive relationships. Returning to the abuser for whatever reasons (any number) is horrific and, well, retarded.

But what makes this even more mind-boggling is that Rihanna doesn't need to return to CB for money or security or stability. They don't have kids, he can't ruin her life, etc. It's not like John and Jane Smith down the street who are everyday people and one of them thinks they couldn't possibly survive without the assistance of the other or that they'd have to face the shame of going to a shelter to get themselves back on track.

Rihanna has money, a support system, her own EVERYTHING. And yet she returns to a man who police want to lay attempted murder charges against. ALL cases where the victim returns to the abuser are annoyingly frustrating but in this case there's so much more of a WHAT THE FUCK? aspect to this.

Way to end the post on a downer moment, eh?

The Spill.com people did a review of Friday the 13th.

I have to disagree with their review out of pure loyalty to Jared, of course, but damn if it isn't funny. I love their reviews.

And just for shits and giggles because I just about pissed myself watching this (EVERY TIME) here's their review for Twilight. I don't think I posted this before, but who knows?

summer_skin: (Twilight- (text) Dazzle? Fuck no!)
I have such a love/hate relationship with Twilight. When I first read the start of the series I was all over it. It was like I was 14 again. And that's who it's aimed at, so you know.

Then the rest of the books came and I was thinking, well, okay. I'll keep going and see what happens. By the last book I was gritting my teeth and saying, OKAY S.MEY. TIME TO MAN UP. DON'T MAKE ME REGRET THE TIME I SPENT READING THE FIRST THREE, MMKAY?

I'll buy the movie because I love to hate it and it has Sparklepires in it. I had an awesome time watching it in the theatre with my bffs. I've already made plans to attend New Moon when it comes out and I'm watching the casting news and prep work for the next two spans of filming because goddamn is the Twifandom fun. [livejournal.com profile] pipry32 YOU HAVE TO KEEP WATCH ON WHAT'S GOING DOWN OVER THERE!

The RPF is fun to write, too. RPatzz and Kstew pretty much write it themselves and probably feel deep shame over that. More ammunition!

But finally. FINALLY. Someone has come out and said what a fuckload of people have been waiting for. Thank you, Stephen King.

Sorry for the spam, people on my flist.

BUT. Voting is over for the PCA awards! Well, kinda. If you click through there's still two awards for new comedy and new drama. I don't watch any of the comedies so I just picked Worst Week because I've heard good things. And for the drama I picked Fringe because if it could hook me a little bit more it would be a new fandom for me. As it is right now I enjoy watching it when it's on and I look forward to the next episodes but I kind of have to remind myself that it's on Tuesdays.

I want to see this so badly now:

LOVE! Also, Max Brooks' World War Z is being made (or already is?) into a movie so I'm going to go pick up the book tomorrow because it sounds AWESOME. 10 years in the future, post zombie-apocalypse? HELLO! I stumbled across an author named David Wellington when I was looking up the Brooks book. Has anyone ever heard of this guy or read his books, Monster Island, Monster Nation and Monster Planet? If you have, are they worth it?

BWAH is all I have to say about Catherine Hardwicke being fired from the next two planned Twilight movies.

Feeling the urge to do something fannish like make a fanmix or a wallpaper or something. Damn Sunday nights when I have to go to bed soon. :(

Another one of the 66 seals have broken (hello Supernatural reference). Heidi and Spencer have gotten married, it seems. Which means procreation is likely next. WHICH MEANS THE FREAKING ANTICHRIST IS COMING. If you don't know who I'm talking about, you're not missing anything, but be afraid. Be very, very afraid.

Also, Summit just green lit the next movie in the Twilight series, New Moon, and it appears that the script is already done. I know they didn't write it in two days but the idea that the way they announced this makes me wish, deep down inside, that they did. *bites lip and crosses fingers* Please please?

In addition to the Mary, Joe and baby Jesus, choo choo train, three snowmen (that don't look alike), three light-up gifts, three carolers, and two midget elves in my front yard there are now a couple of those white wire light-up reindeer in the living room, waiting to go out. Weirdest Christmas story ever? You betcha.
