the plow clears the road
oily mountains block my car

an old joke is new:

I got fried rice, peoples.

A brief WWI Jackobite article from Military History. )

Do you ever want to google a pic and find, well fuck, you can't google images? I was looking at a person in someone's icon today and I was like, "Who is that? I'll google it! No wait, what do I type? 'black and white photo, white male, old picture, finger on face'?" Durrrrrrr.

ETA: A werewolf falling in love with a baby. This is why Thomas Edison invented this shit in the first place. So we could see a werewolf fall in love with a baby.

Amen.

1. As I was linked to a rec for Heat Goes To Cold and One Thousand yesterday, the recs mentioned that the stories were ten years old, and it took me aback for a second. They ARE ten years old. At least. They might have been posted in 1998 (the notes say 1999 and 2000, but by 2000 I was living in my flat, and I had posted them before that, so I might be wrong.). I forget. Holy fucking shit. TEN YEARS in online fandom at least. And people are STILL READING them. Thanks people!

2. I feel slightly old.

3. I noticed a few days ago that LJ changed their search function. It now sucks balls. Some journals I would just look up whenever I wanted to see them, and now I can't do that, because they no longer show up in any search function.

Thanks lj, for becoming completely fucktarded. And don't bitch about how I'm a whiny fandom person because I said nothing all through strike through, nipplegate, the plus account/ad bullshit and the recent gender!fail crap. I hate you because your code is stepping backwards, like someon moron deciding they need to throw out their Blue-Ray player for goddamned Betamax.

I have just proven that poem about how when the came for my neighbour, I did nothing, and then they came for mah other neighbour and I did nothing, and then they came and took my Bagelfuls and I uh, I dunno. I forget that poem.

Or that other porn about how if I keep my head when chaos is all around me, then Jackie Aprile might shoot me in the head at a card game. Wait. No.

Sooper secret response for [livejournal.com profile] arsenicjade Dr O: (sigh) sometimes I just get so overwhelmed, I don't know whether to start from the left or from the right.

4. I want Burger King. I KNOW YOU THINK I MEAN THE FOOD, BUT NO, I MEAN THE BURGER KING. ROWR.

PSYCH, I WAS KIDDING. I WANT ME A WHOPPER. THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID. NO I MEAN THE BURGER. BUT WITH ONLY CHEESE, ONION, KETCHUP, MUSTARD AND PICKLES. IT'S LIKE ASKING THEM TO MAKE YOU A CHEESE BURGER THAT IS 2X THE SIZE! BOO YAH!

5. Yet another reason why Pittsburgh is an awesome place to live. Excerpt: "We wanted to do this street theater to energize people," said Mr. Buba, who wore a name tag bearing the name of UPMC board member G. Nicholas Beckwith III for the mock meeting. "The zombie link works because zombies have an insatiable appetite for human flesh and UPMC seems to have an insatiable appetite for chewing up our communities."

6. It started to snow here in the evening. I put on Ashokan Farewell and stood outside in the drift for about 20 minutes. Good times.

7. I bought this and lost it years ago (I might have given it to a co-worker in the English Department and never got it back; we're squirrely like that.), and I think I might get it again. LOL that amazon remembers that I bought it on April 13, 2003. Oh sad sad sad. :(

8. I'M GONNA SPEND MY MUTHERFUCKING CRIMMAS WITH A MUTHERFUCKING DALEK, BITCHES.

9. I take back all the bad things I was thinking about Dexter. I just got to the point where he tells Cody he'll go to his school for his report on Saudi Arabia.

10. DEAR CRUENTUM, I AM NOT YOUR SANTA, BUT I WROTE YOU FLUFFY SCOTT/JB RPS. No, it wasn't me. I wish it had been.

OMG THERE WAS CAEK! Sometime this week, I'm doing a photo dump, where I will have Barrowsparkle kid photos and pics of her new boyfriend, Frosty the Inflatable Snowman, but for now, you all must deal with—

WE TRACED THE IP. THE UPDATE IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE. )

SOMEONE MAKE ME A TORCHWOOD CRIMMAS ICON. I SWEAR I SUCK SO HARD AT IT. ETA: THANK YOU SO MUCH [livejournal.com profile] angstslashhope!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] kel_reiley said it was okay to post, because it was already tomorrow (And it is, especially in Australia.).

REQUIREMENT TO READ THIS ENTRY: BEFORE YOU COMMENCE, PRESS PLAY ON THE FOLLOWING VIDEO:



THANK YOU. )


Later this month I have a post on what you all mean to me and something about the Grinch and his walnut heart and something about eggnog and Windex and it's curative properties. Then we all grill a lamb on the lawn. I might be getting fandom confused with My Big Fat Greek Wedding. ::shrug:: Whatever. I make you lamb.

I can't believe I actually have a list of lj-entry subjects.

You know what I want to see again? The Syrian Bride.
amand_r: (PHALLOCENTRIC GHEY!)
Look people, on the same day that CoE aired in the UK, something horrible happened. Panic! At the Disco broke up. Now, I know you are all like, "Amand-r, I didn't know you liked Panic!" Well, I don't. Well, I DO, but not in a fandom way.

[livejournal.com profile] arsenicjade, my sweetie, my little dalek fajita, my little threeway of badness, she loves the Ptad. She's written more fic for it than I will ever write in all my fandoms. And like a certain teaboy, well, let's just say the band ain't coming back, unless they do a reunion tour when they all run out of money, like in three years.

Here's the thing. I know WAY more about P!ATD than I should, by all rights, know. So I am going to share it with you, because I like post-it notes. And because Arsenic needs a pick me up.

It's like that video where the girl who has never seen Star Wars tries to explain the plot. )
amand_r: (waaaaaaaa)
TODAY IS ARSENIC JADE'S BIRTHDAY, AND THIS IS MOMENTOUS, BECAUSE SHE IS THE SHIT.



That is [livejournal.com profile] arsenicjade. She actually has a head, but the internets is not allowed to see it. I love her because she gave me my husband, and because she is funny, and more caring than I could ever be, and smarter than me too, but she puts up with my bullshit. I love her even when her toe is gross. I love her frankenpiercings (I SAY THAT WITH LOVE), and I just in general think she's swell.

She was the flower girl in my wedding, and she rocked the house. She has managed to get out of sex with me...three? Four times? And that is no small feat.

BB, I wish you the best, and open the thing I sent you, and see HOW RELEVANT IT IS TO YOU RIGHT NOW. Tianyu, by the way, would be so proud of you.

You know he also would have something to say about your rack. I agree with ghostianyu: Heh. Boobs.

1. I don't know WTF, but when I was googling for the Torchwood logo I came across this, and I have to say, I have no idea WTH is going on there. I am intrigued and repelled, and also cannot get the idea of Jack hitting on Pikachu out of my head. OH DEAR GOD JACK/JIGGLY PUFF. NO.

2. [livejournal.com profile] snaxident linked me here to pictures of ROBOCOP ON A UNICORN. Somehow, this makes me feel all patriotic. Like I should watch The Neverending Story and shoot an apple pie in the face while reading the Bill of Rights or something. Or eat an apple pie while reading the Bill of Rights as I shoot The Neverending Story in the face. I am conflicted. But patriotically so.

3. An open apology to all peeps, most of them Torchwood, for me in general being obnoxious on the internets over like, the past month or so. I shall endeavour to be less so. Well, I'll still be me on mah lj, but less me everywhere else. And if I pissed you off, I am sorry. It was not my intent, and I am really 98% squee and 2% thinky. Well, okay, like 45% squee, 45% 7-UP, and 12% Midori. Or 23% water and 67 % nitrous oxide.

Anyway, I am sorry for anything I might have said to upset or offend anyone, and I will totes be all quiety and shit. It's all good.

Except here. All ya'll can fuck off my LJ.

4. This dude arranged Viva La Vida and Love Song together to make one song, on the piano and cello. I post it for [livejournal.com profile] amonitrate, because really girl, that cello work at the beginning is fantastic. Cell-tastic, one might say. It will give you CELL-GASMS.

5. AN EMAIL EXCHANGE WITH A NON-TW WATCHER:

Amand-r: [I sent her something unrelated to TW]
Arsenic: Thank you for that, bb. How's Ianto?
Amand-r: BADASS.
Arsenic: Excellent, I hope he makes it through and doesn't end up having a cocaine addiction, or anything.

LOLOR5.
amand_r: (Default)
I feel weird posting this before I actually go to bed, but bah. I am busy tomorrow. And it IS tomorrow, so SCORE.

1. I meant to write last night, but I made the mistake of coming in RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING of the epic sock LOL battle yesterday in [livejournal.com profile] ask_aboutcoffee's lj, and it was like I couldn't look away. Writing delayed by an hour the evening. (In my head, I have a list of who I think everyone is. I should make an excel spreadsheet. And a pie chart or something. I feel like Encyclopedia Brown. OMG IS NOW THE TIME WE ALL SING 'WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CARMEN SANDIEGO'?)

2. Question: would you call To Let AU? Received a rec for it, and I was like, huh? Maybe? ::head cock:: Okay. (they also hated the coda, but meh.)

3. I have decided that since I am really bad at leaving meaningful feedback to fic, I am going to do it with youtube vids instead. Like interpretive dance. )

4. Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you. (Please note: If you simply wish to comment on something I've said but don't want to participate in the meme, that is fine. I will only give you five words if you specifically comment you with 'Words!')

idon'tlikegravy gave me: crack, Shakespeare, dude, language, sarcasm )

5. Today, TODAY is the day that [livejournal.com profile] arsenicjade comes, with Arsenicmum! Yay! SOAP AND TOILET PAPER FOR ALL MY MEN!
amand_r: (tw/jack is like wearing prada)
1. Adding to my list of crack ass vids I want to make: Torchwood, Ray Charles, "Hallelujah, I Love Her So." No no no, it's good. IN MY HEAD.

2. This weekend [livejournal.com profile] arsenicjade and mother of AJ will be here overnight. Which means I should get out the firehose and clean the bathrooms. And give the kid a bath. And shower.

3. Congrats, [livejournal.com profile] emquilxy on your new kitteh Miho! Miho is the best name ever.

4. Is there going to be a sock reveal? Are we going to meet the genius behind A_CJ? Because that's fucking art, people. ART. I just see rumours flying (damn you, [livejournal.com profile] neifile7 for getting me all needlessly excited!), and my heart goes all aflutter. I have to know where to send the case of beer! And the dancing ladies! The strumpets with crumpets!

5. I actually have nothing to say about anything. I wish I did. I wish I had something funny to say every day. But some days is bleaugh. I am inexplicably sad today. ::sad panda face::

Holy crap. Have I lost my mojo? Is this going to turn into some sort of horrible Austin Powers montage?

FLIST! I ORDER CHEER!

eta: Farah Fawcett is dead. Cue lines like, 'She's one of God's angels, now.'

Amand-r: I AM MILDLY BORED.

Amand-r: PLUS: CLIMBING TREES.

Amand-r: AND SAVING UP SHIT FOR WINTER IN A HOLE SOMEWHERE.
Amand-r: WITH MY LUCK, SOME OTHER FUCKING SQUIRREL WOULD TAKE ALL MY FUCKING NUTZ.
Amand-r: I SEE THAT YOU ARE TOO PONDERING THE NATURE OF BEING WILDLIFE.
Amand-r: IF YOU WERE A WILDLIFE CREATURE, ABIGAIL WIGGINS III, YOU WOULD BE...HRM...A LEMUR. NO WAIT, A MEERKAT.
Amand-r: OR MAYBE A WILD HAMSTER.
Amand-r: A WILD HAMSTER THAT ROAMS THE MOORS IN SEARCH OF PREY.
Amand-r: TASTY, TASTY PREY.

ABIGAIL WIGGINS III is idle

Amand-r: OMG there should be an herbivore out there just called "Prey" like that should be its name.
Amand-r: And then when people talk about the carnivores that eat them, we could all be smartasses without being smartasses.
Amand-r:
Them: What do they eat?
Us: Prey.
Them: No, really.
Us: Y RLY.
Amand-r: This is your way of telling me to go outside and play, isn't it?
Amand-r: IT'S RAINING.
amand_r: (batman/check this shit yo)
AAAAAAND CONGRATULATIONS, [livejournal.com profile] sivatheminty ON A BABY BOY! ::sniff: I remember when you were a 14 year old girl, writing Highlander/South Park crossovers for the lyric wheel, and now you have a chain mail wearing husband and a boy! A BOY. NICE!

OH MY GOD IS LIFE FUN. GO OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW, NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, AND LOOK UP. ISN'T THAT FUCKING BEAUTIFUL? AND IF IT'S NOT, STARE HARDER. IT WILL BE. Unless you live in the sun. DON'T STARE.

BEFORE WE GET STARTED TODAY, BROTHERS AND SISTERS, I HAVE A MEME.

I have a lot of new people, and so in light of that, even old people:

The problem with Livejournal is that we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. Hence, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Then post this in your LJ (if you want to) and find out what people don’t know about you.

It doesn't have to be obvious. FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT, BIATCHES. I mean, really, I'm pretty open, so I imagine that there isn't a lot that you all don't know about me, but if you felt the driving urge to ask me if I have all of my original teeth (I do!) or ask me just how big my imaginary balls are (MY NUTZ IS HUGE.), then, well, have at it.

I guess I answered those. Hrm.

This update brought to you by Bible sex!, my thoughts on yaoi, fandom love, dalek supreme eating spicy bacon cheddar popcorn, fark dot com, and welcome visitors!. )
amand_r: (spartans dine)
Oh hai.

Ye olde developementes and shite:


1. Okay, so it's no secret: Angelina Johnson/Fred/George. I ship it hard. Like, FUCKING HARD. Like in my current story, they all live together and she's having their baby, and they don't even know whose baby it is, and they don't care. That being said, I might have joked this morning about writing a polyamourous 5-way relationship in a fic, and then I thought, well, why not? Does this happen a lot? Anyone know? Three guys and two girls? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

2. Well, I know that you're in love with him, because I saw you dancing in the gym. You both kicked off your shoes. I dig that rhythm and blues.

3. [livejournal.com profile] arsenicjade is a secretive person, and as such does not use her RL name online in fandom. I usually am swift enough to not call her by her RL name, but occasionally I slip up. The name has been erased, but in order to keep myself from slipping up ever again, I have decided to rename her Abigail Wiggins III. I will refer to her as My Lady of the Wiggins, Abbilicious, and THE WIGGINATOR. Just an FYI for [livejournal.com profile] idyll, [livejournal.com profile] earthly_gnome, and others who might know Abelina in REEEEEEL TIMEZ. Feel free to adjust your thinking around my reshaping of reality accordingly.

4. My cousin, [livejournal.com profile] emquilxy, as a friend, named…we'll call her Sherilyn Singh. Singh is her real last name but there's like fifty billion Singhs in the world, so go ahead and find me in New York for this fucking quarter. Anyway, Sherilyn has 4 kids, and she's trying to pair up Viola with one of her boys or girls. We think it's funny because then VK's name would be Viola Ching-Singh. No for SRS, that is the shit.

5. Who knew there was a phone Gestapo?

6. GOODBYE, PENGUINS. (h/t [livejournal.com profile] irisdragonfly)

7. In the adventures of 'I am fail,' I was supposed to go to my parents' house on Friday to let the Orkin Man in to spray for the CRAZY ASS ANTS THAT LIKE, INVADE THEIR HOUSE, and I managed to forget. ::headdesk:: That's okay. I'll go over there today. OH HAI. EXCUSE TO GET THAI FOOD.

8. Who wants to beta a three page TW story about an anal plug? Yeah, sign me up, baby.
amand_r: (torchwood/pc andy spooky-dos)
It started to be about Torchsong, but degenerated into Supreme Dalek's plan for Slurpees. )

If GDL turns out to be the only member of Torchwood there, I think they should rename it IANTOCON. OR POSSIBLY IANTOKEN, as in Ianto is the Token Torchwood member.

OH SNAP.

:Amand-r: Question: why is the W in "answer" silent? What did it ever do to anyone?
Arsenicjade: It was the middle initial of our last president?
Amand-r: GOOD EYE.

EDIT: How is it that no one has done a TW vid to Alex Parks' "Mad World"?

EDIT2: Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] verasteine for making me look for this, same song, but by Adam Lambert. Wow, he's a cutie, isn't he?
