God, it was this kind of comedic continuity that made me love the writing on Scrubs. This is 6 seasons worth of clips.



My god I want to write Hooch fanfic.

Eamonn Fetherston's rec of Shining's "Madness and the Damage Done":

Before this year, I had little to no interest in black metal. Within the past few months, however, Norway's Shining (along with San Francisco's Ludicra) have given me cause to reconsider my initial dismissal. "Madness and the Damage Done" balances Shining's caustic and wildly experimental approach with a relentless and surprisingly catchy groove. If other bands out there are better at making guitars sound like they're full of dying circuit boards and battery acid, I haven't found them yet.

So I had to look it up. And yes.



Also: It's T.I. time.

amand_r: (having a kid=scary)
There's no way to describe it to non-parents, but when you're rocking your sick kid at 2 am, and she sits back in your lap to tell you something and promptly vomits all over you and herself, all the "ewwwww" that you get when contemplating the scenario as a childfree person sort of disappears in a zenlike series of actions. It's true isn't it? You just get them to the bathroom as quickly as possible, strip and wash, and reclothe. There isn't any time to stop and think, "Oh god that's disgusting."

Now that it's over, oh god, it smelled like rotten cheese.

Earlier in a day in the life of a kidlet:

Me: Are you wet?
Kidlet: No.
Me: Are you dry?
Kidlet: No.
Me: It seems we have a case of Schrodinger's pull-up.
Kidlet: (gravely) Yes.

Me: (showing her the letter G) What's this?
Kidlet: G.
Me: What starts with G?
Kidlet: …?
Me: Are you a baby?
Kidlet: No.
Me: Are you a little boy?
Kidlet: No.
Me: Right! You are a little…?
Kidlet: (thinks) Camel.
Me: Uhm. Okay.

Okay, so [livejournal.com profile] sivatheminty sent me this vid in an email back in February, with the title, "Ode to Duncan", and if you are a HL fan you'll get why, but omg I laughed so hard, especially when I got to "lol @ dude on fire".

amand_r: (paperclip/writing)
1. Most Badass alphabet ever. (h/t [livejournal.com profile] sivatheminty)

2.


3. [livejournal.com profile] adjovi told me about this at lunch Saturday, and Jesus, it's comedy gold: Man tried to revive dead possum; alcohol involved. That last bit—YOU THINK?

4. And because it came up, I remind you once again, LIKE A BOSS.

5. Thursday was cooking night! Steamed pork, souffled mac and cheese, etc. )


6. Saturday was the day for shopping in the Pittsburgh strip district. I documented for posterity. )

7. Spike? It's you. It's really you! My therapist thought I was holding onto false hope, but... I knew you'd come back. You're like... you're like Gandalf the White, resurrected from the pit of the Balrog, more beautiful than ever. Ohh... he's alive, Frodo. He's alive.
amand_r: (CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS)
1. I DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN MY ART TO YOU, WARREN.



2. [livejournal.com profile] husiemama sent me the most awesome Torchwood card, and she was kind enough to scan the image for us all. This way for the crimmas spirit! )

3. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] darthhellokitty and [livejournal.com profile] qthelights for the spanking cards!

4. THINGS LATER.
amand_r: (jaws/imma eat y'all)
1. You always wanted to know the weather, Star Wars style. Unfortunately, most cities I entered are much like Hoth right now. Enter a city it doesn't know. LOL.

2. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] valancy_joy for the awesome package! No spoilers for those yet to arrive at others', but it was adorable!

3. There was some debate last night on Twitter about who would win: Jaws or a velociraptor, and I felt that 140 characters is not enough space for me to explain the reason Jaws would KICK THE VELOCIRAPTOR'S ARSE: )

4. If you haven't added a drink recipe to the list, please do so! Drunkards here!

5. She's…a spinner. )

6. Links to all the anon fic from the Santa Meme. )

If I'm missing any, let me know.

REEL TW due today. Yeah. Uhm.

ETA: A VELOCIRAPTOR RIDING JAWS. THAT IS EFFING RIGHT.
amand_r: (crimmas/jack's crimmas tardis)
1. SOMEONE WROTE ME TOSH/ MEETS JOHN BARROWMAN ON THE ANON SANTA THREAD. I DON'T KNOW WHO THIS ANON IS WHO KEEPS GRANTING MY WISHES, BUT KEEP DOING IT. ILU.

2. The rest of this post is about mah kid, so you can skip if you are allergic to cute. I can't help it. She's cute so you don't sell her.

Oh the trouble you'll get in! )

3. Okay I lied:

C! DOES THIS REALLY HAPPEN? I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE IT DOESN'T:

amand_r: (crimmas/ianto's bow ass)
1. You know what I miss? Witch Hunter Robin. I'd like to see that again.

2. And for those of you who don't believe that Pittsburgh is unique and strange, I bring you the Pittsburgh cookie table, a must at every wedding. I am told mine was good. I wouldn't know because I ate one cookie and when I returned, drunk, it was empty.

3. Sometimes it's good to remember what some music and a good voice over actor can do. )

4. You know, if you have time to read and comment on other stories in the fest, you have time to read and comment on your gift, even if you didn't like it. You just say "Oh thank you!" Mention a few things you liked (Jesus, even if most of it is suck, there's always something redeemable. I found redemption in the Biscuit story), and bob is your goddamn uncle.

5. Before I forget, THANK YOU to [livejournal.com profile] beeej, [livejournal.com profile] bluejeans07, [livejournal.com profile] bethcarielle, and [livejournal.com profile] solsticezero for the spankin' cards! God we're all so effing creative, and beth, your kind words were heartening, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Beeej! HIGHLANDER CARDS RULE. I wanted to do a post-it HL card, but my creative well had run dry. :(
amand_r: (da bing)
Thanks to Xiao di di, I now have WONDERWALL GOING THROUGH MY HEAD, AND THE ONLY THING THAT CAN SCRUB IT CLEAN, LIKE A MISTER CLEAN MAGIC ERASER IN MY SKULL, IS MIKA. I HATE YOU, NICHOLAS H. CRUENTUM. I COME FROM THE LAND OF COAL; YOU'RE LUCKY IT'S SO FUCKING HEAVY OR I'D SEND YOU A BIG OLD LUMP OF IT. I was going to make a joke about squeezing it so hard you make a diamond to present to JB at panto, but it involved buttocks, and that's just not funny.

Sometimes I surprise the fuck out of myself. Today is not one of those days. )

I bet some days you wonder why you even click on my lj cuts. :P I know why you do, you saucy minxes.
amand_r: (drwho/rose and the doctor)
1. Someone explain to me why Asheru doesn't have a full EP for this fucking song. Because I am tired of pressing "play" on this 30 second clip. And if there is a full edit, TELL ME.

I AM THE STONE THAT THE BUILDER REFUSED, I AM THE VISUAL, THE INSPIRATION THAT MADE THE LADY SING THE BLUES. I AM THE SPARK THAT MAKES YOUR IDEA BRIGHT, THE SAME SPARK THAT LIGHTS THE DARK SO THAT YOU CAN KNOW YOUR LEFT FROM YOUR RIGHT. I AM THE BALLOT IN THE BOX, THE BULLET IN THE GUN, THE INNERGLOW THAT LETS YOU KNOW WHEN TO CALL YOUR BROTHER, SON. THE STORY THAT JUST BEGUN, THE PROMISE OF WHAT'S TO COME, AND IMMA REMAIN A SOLDIER 'TIL THE WAR IS WON.

That makes me wanna booze up and riot. That, incidentally, is going to be the speech I give in court when I act as my own defense. Like, in my opening argument. My closing argument will obviously be:

..ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, I have one final thing I want you to consider. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!

Why would a Wookiee, an eight-foot tall Wookiee, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of two-foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense! But more important, you have to ask yourself: What does this have to do with this case? Nothing. Ladies and gentlemen, it has nothing to do with this case! It does not make sense! Look at me. I'm[not] a lawyer defending a major record company [myself], and I'm talkin' about Chewbacca! Does that make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, I am not making any sense! None of this makes sense! And so you have to remember, when you're in that jury room deliberatin' and conjugatin' the Emancipation Proclamation,
(softly) does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, it does not make sense! If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must acquit! The defense rests.

I can taste freedom already. I choose however, as is my conjugal right, to put up a poster of Raquel Welsh on my cell wall.

2. So:



The rudest thing I have ever asked someone is if they will give me 10 percent of all their children (And while we're on that subject, I don't see what the big deal was. I mean, Hallo? You yielded in the past! Duh!). The rudest thing I have ever been asked is, 'So, what’s with all the mucus throwing?' IT'S A SKIN CONDITION, PEOPLE..

3. The Hermione Big Bang is edited and sent to the mods. *squee* ONE DOWN, TWO TO GO, BIATCHES. By November I shall be footloose and fancy free (and ready to start looking for a job. Boooooo! Hiss!). I might even pretend to be Kevin Bacon.

4. After much debate (and some Wallow Weekend encouragement), I am decided to start posting the body swap, even though it's not done. I know this means that I won't have some readers until it's done, and that is fine. But It's sitting here, and the more I look at it, the more ornery I get, and it's been a long time since I've posted something FUN, FUN FUN, PEOPLE. CRACKALICIOUS SILLINESS WITH A SIDE OF SRS BZNS (AND PLOT). SO, read it if you like, or don't. But even the unfinished parts are mostly written. I have the first three "days" written complete. Day Four is almost completely done, and days five through eight are chopped up into sections. Like I said, read it if you want. :)

5. MY PARENTS TOOK MY KID TO THE LAKE FOR THE DAY. WHATEVER SHALL I DO? I THINK I'LL SEE HOW MANY WORDS I CAN WRITE IN ONE DAY. JACK WON'T LAY HIMSELF, YOU KNOW. WELL, HE COULD, BUT YOU KNOW.

1. Pornsultant Bob is on Doctor Who Season 2:

Pornsultant Bob: K9 is really cute.
Amand-r: Oh Jesus. K-9. I read a Jack/K-9 somewhere.
Pornsultant Bob: That just seems unnecessary. Robotic Bestiality... Not my cup of tea.
Amand-r: Not when it's Jack. It's like it HAS TO BE DONE BECAUSE IT'S THERE.
Pornsultant Bob: Only for Organic Life. Kinda.
Amand-r: INTERSPECIES...ROBOTICA?
Pornsultant Bob: If Robotica is a legitimate form of porn, than so is an inflatable girlfriend.
Amand-r: YOU MEAN THEY AREN'T?
Pornsultant Bob: Not really.
Amand-r: Next you'll be telling me that there's no such thing as the donkey show.

2. Yesterday, [livejournal.com profile] misswinterhill said that I was squee anthropomorphised, so feel free to think of me as that.

3. Thanks for the nice words yesterday, mah peepes (I spelled that Samuel Pepys style—YE OLD PEEPES.)

4. So last night [livejournal.com profile] sthayashi, the delectable E, and another friend, we'll call him Clyde, came over for dinner and drinking. Clyde is not with our mad drinking skills, as you can see on the POST IT NOTE:



But around beer three, the swords came out. )

5. I watched the Dead Like Me movie Friday night. I really really liked it. I mist be the only one. Thoughts later.

6. I have to get my fingers to work this morning. Right now they feel like they're made out of gummi worms. Fuck.
amand_r: (HP/oppression!)
1. The kidlet and I have blown so many bubbles on the front porch that when it rains, there's lather.

2. Really, look at this—PEOPLE I HAVE REENACTED THE DEATH SCENE WITH: [livejournal.com profile] lionessblack, [livejournal.com profile] cruentum (AND I GOT TO BE IANTO), [livejournal.com profile] smirnoffmule, [livejournal.com profile] pogrebin, [livejournal.com profile] mrsalemp. Have I missed anyone? GET IN LINE. I WILL NOT BE SATISFIED UNTIL I HAVE CRIED OVER ALL OF YOU.

3. Oh hai there six-thirty ack emma. )

4. Thisis what happens when jedi apprentices drink unattended. (h/t [livejournal.com profile] amonitrate)

5. I got a postcard yesterday made of SHEEP POO PAPER. On the back, it read as follows: "JANET! I KNOW U CAN'T READ, LOL. THIS IS SOMETHING SPECIAL SMELL IT LOL. I WIN. HART PS: YOU KNOW I LET YOU OUT! I STILL WIN!"

Yes, it is official: [livejournal.com profile] paragraphs and [livejournal.com profile] cruentum are made of pure 100% win. Dry clean only, bitches. Do not steam.

6. Yesterday I made the kid her first cup of coffee. Before you go screaming, it was café au lait with sugar. Think Café du Monde. And she drank it with a Ho-Ho. You can scream about that part.

7. It's nice to see that I'm not the only one who thinks LIKE A BOSS IS THE FUNNIEST THING EVAR.

8. [livejournal.com profile] lionessvalenti, AKA SEXY MAMA and I have signed on for the TW BIG BANG. WE WILL TOTALLY ROCK YOUR SOCKS OFF once we deal with a huge plot issue that we might need outside help with.

8. THIS IS MY LOVE LETTER TO THE CIRCUS. (Image/vid heavy.) )

I…I liked the circus.
amand_r: (firefly/well fuck)
amand_r: (HP/mad eye mentos)
1. THE HERMIONE BIG BANG IS FINISHED. 49,500 WORDS. I REPEAT, EFFING FINISHED. If you guys end up hating it, IT WILL BE ALL TORCHWOOD'S FAULT.

So, here's like…a fannish whoring confession.  )

2. How did I not know about [livejournal.com profile] writerinadrawer? GAH! But my peeps are in there. LAWSUNTULLE! CRUE! VERA! Fight anonymously FOR MY PLEASURE! (I feel sort of creepily like Ray Fiennes picking up Emily Watson in Red Dragon. Now I need pie.)


I know I could never have done it (also? Every time I'm in an anon fest I AM LIKE THE FIRST PERSON ACCURATELY GUESSED, EVEN WHEN I TRY TO BE DIFFERENT), BECAUSE I HAVE LIKE fifteen million things to be writing (like MANDY fic that ends with Mickey showing Andy the big gun. We'd all read a fic in which the two of them accidentally fall in together and end up stopping a catastrophe through a series of events that no one else ends up knowing about because they're busy elsewhere saving the actual world, right?

I am petulant. But ANTICIPATORY! AND EXCITED ABOUT SHIT AGAIN!

3. I AM MAKING A LIST OF ALL THE FICS I AM WORKING ON RIGHT HERE, AND IF YOU WANT TO STEAL THE IDEAS, WELL, THEN YOU GO ON AHEAD, BUT I HAVE STARTED THEM ALL. That was not supposed to be caps but now it is, and I ain't changing it! )

4. My kid, my kid. So I took her to the park, )

5. And while I'm uploading pictures, allow me to become that creepy cat lady. )

6. A_CJ would fucking love free steak! )
amand_r: (doctor who/HARRIET JONES)
BEFORE WE START TODAY:



Yes please.

OKAY THEN.

1. Dear Captain Jack, )

2. Furthermore, I have been experimenting with those pen and inkwell contraptions: It's effing hard! )

3. Oh K'naan, I love you and your Somalia video.

3. Yesterday, four separate posts referenced my name. That was bizarro-town, peoples. (AND YOU ALL SPELLED IT RIGHT.)

4. [livejournal.com profile] pogrebin's journal title (in French!) is "sous les paves, la plage". That's swell and all, but every time I see it, I am transported back in time to my sophomore year high school musical: The Boy Friend, and its winning number, Sur La Plage. ZE GIRLS! ZEY ARE COMING! (Amand-r assumes the fetal position.)

5. [livejournal.com profile] tripperfunster I realised that I owed you a letter about Jimmy/Chazz, and I started it. THE BRUSH HAS MADE AN APPEARANCE IN THE FIRST LINE. I CANNOT AVOID THE BRUSH. I might make it a kink_bingo entry.

6. Mah kid is awesome. MADE OF WIN. That is all.

ETA: OMG CANNOT STOP LISTENING TO MAHALIA JACKSON. Have already been dancing in the kitchen for fifteen minutes. Send a rescue crew.
amand_r: (waaaaaaaa)
Thanks to everyone who told me to post my anon porn yesterday! I feel so liberated! I threw off the shackles of anonynuyu….of anonynomiti—fuck it. I threw off the yoke of anon—fuck. What does one do in moments like this? Rely on spell check? Throw in the towel? Help me out here, Prodigy!

The Prodigy: I got da poison, I got the remedy!

Good! Lay it on me!

The Prodigy: I got the pulsating rhythmical remedy.

And?

The Prodigy: I got da poison! I got da poison!



Obviously this might take a while. )
