Sara's long overdue yet extremely brief thoughts on MCR's Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. So this is a bit different, isn't it? John & Sam hated it straight away, and initially both Sean and I thought it was. Well. Very safe sounding. before I really listened to it over and over again, there wasn't a lot I liked about it save for a few of the catchier songs. Just musically, it's less interesting & has less hooks, not that it isn't well-executed, and Plantetary GO seems to take a strange sojourn into disco land while there's overall less Gerardesque singing and strangely a lot of synth and doubled Geerad vocals but it still gels pretty well.

Agreeing with [ profile] moondarri here: it's a repeater. I'm still not too keen on Scarecrow, but Danger Days is quickly joining my jams playlist :) Despite the above bitching, I've learned not to be so srs bsns about it and embrace the technicolor rockage!

And catching up on the Big Finish audios I've been lax on picking up the past, oh, most-of-the-year, I'm again awash in Doctor Who love, especially my boys Five and Eight :3 Big Finish finally convinced Janet Fielding to come back to the fold and so there's new episodes with Five, Nyssa, Turlough, and Tegan omfgy ^__^ Eight has a new companion who I haven't really warmed up to yet (Lucie was a hard act to follow), but I do get Paul McGann being deliciously bitchy and snappish as the Doctor so it's a nice trade off. And it was just announced on the Classic Who official Twitter that the remastered Mara Tales are going to be released imminently fucking finally. Love me some floppy hair!Five and evil!Tegan.

I have not yet watched this year's Christmas special, so NO SPOILERS YO, but I do understand there is Michael Gambon and apparently it's the best ep since Blink or so I hear and that is MUY EXCITING. I must rewatch series 5 <3

Either Moff is a mad genius (which he is), or he rewatched a few Fifth Doctor serials before his first series as showrunner began.

Or the universe is playing a massive trick on him.

Also, look at this dapper motherfucker right here.

As much as I've done some complaining about the recent Harry Potter films, and how I felt like I had to force myself through about the last half of the seventh book, the party posts surrounding Deathly Hallows part 1 are doing a number on me and I'm getting insanely nostalgic and a bit teary :( The final nail is going into the coffin of the HP franchise forever (unless JKR decides to dig it up at some point, but I'm pretty sure that's only when she's finished swimming in her money piles, SCrooge McDuck style~) and I'll be left with my dvds and well-thumbed copies of the books and Twilight as The Next Harry Potter oh god save us D:

I was never part of the fandom while it was in its heyday, so I was never around for shipping wank or the legendary theories (Ron is Dumbledore, apparently), but in a way I'm happy for that because I haven't got anything to taint my memories of walking around my school with my nose stuck in Goblet of Fire, or spending every waking moment reading them. That and I guess I was dumb and didn't get that Ron and Hermione loved each other until someone told me (pre book seven), but there you go.

So rereading is in order, I think :)

new season 5 trailer underneath cut, also, Peter Davison being made of win )

So Doctor Who is being very good to me now and will continue to be in the upcoming weeks because the new series starts and I will finally have some Eleven in my life (♥♥♥)

I finished Final Fantasy XIII, and yes I do feel very accomplished. MY that game is freaking LONG. And for some reason there's certain missions that you aren't meant to finish before finishing the game once through because you can't possibly be strong enough because the last level of the Crystarium isn't unlocked until you beat the last boss. Strange, convoluted non-logic to be sure, but I don't have any reason to completely abandon/restart the game now, because maybe I can finally beat the adamantoise ) so I can finally upgrade my weapons to max :(

This happy post was brought to you by the letters D, W, and F :)

Contemplating joining [ profile] fandomsmash as the Fifth Doctor at the behest of my [ profile] batmanboxers, even though I've never RPed before. It's a little scary, and I'm worried I won't be in character or that I won't recognize some people from other fandoms, aieeee. idk, idk, I'm thinking about it, but I like the idea of playing Five :D

There's two vastly different parties planning to get me good and drunk tomorrow, but my uncle Paul has taken it upon himself to make plans without asking me first, so he gets it in his head that I'm coming with him and my uncle Chester, with John and Sam and possibly our friend Ryan Miller invited to come along, which is okay? Just no. One: Where does he get off making plans without me when it's my birthday?

Two: How awkward is this going to be? Very -__- I can hardly be around my uncles because of sheer obnoxiousness, and I really just wanted this to be a young persons' night on the town. It's going to be uncomfortable, anything involving Paul usually is, but I'm also worried that he only made Chester come because Paul doesn't have a job and has the opportunity to get drunk on his brother's dime, and Chester is likely indifferent to my birthday. The whole situation has got me making this face:

And because partly I'm indecisive and partly I don't want to offend anyone, I'm not going to say anything, and it'd be a pretty big dick move for me to exclude my uncles, of all people.

But Sam is saying that when we go down and visit my dad this upcoming weekend, he says he'll take us all out to dinner so we can celebrate my brother's and my birthdays at the same time.

Nevermind that I might want to go out with my friends at some point. My buddy Karen is already planning on taking me to Cheesecake Factory cuz she says they have delicious drinks. So if I get yummy drinks and cheesecake, consider me a happy girl :)

Whoops, almost forgot to mention, I'm really in love with this painting of the Doctor. Seriously lovely work <3

We've had rain forecast for the previous two and upcoming three days, but finally we had some last night. This gets in the way of mine and my grandmother's morning walks, sure, but I'm glad of it as opposed to months of bone-dry weather, and it's so much more pleasant with the moisture

I've been terribly remiss in my Doctor Who Big Finish listenings. Currently up to "The Scapegoat" and thoughts so far are entirely these: EIGHT SPEAKING FRENCH NRRGGGHHH, major lol @ Lucie looking for Ewan McGregor in Montmarte, and WHOA, Big Finish is more gruesome than either Classic or New Who BY FAR. I am excite! I've missed both Eight and Five terribly ^__^


Have I ever mentioned my love for tumblr? If for nothing else, it has brought us keyboard cat Dhani!

More studying for finals today! I'll be thinking longingly of you all while sipping Starbucks and breaking my head over my lecture notes with my classmates -__-

Post because I'm like Photobucket @ all the Eleven haters already cropping up, not even having seen him in a finished episode yet.

About Ten's departure, Eleven and throwbacks, no spoilers about The End of Time, seeing as I have no idea what the story is )

My biology teacher has decided to both torture and bless us next week with the THIRD exam in, like four weeks on Monday, in exchange he's taking off Wednesday and I am SO not complaining about it because that's my lab day and I don't feel like spending three hours in a lab when I could be sleeping for once!

I still have a research paper to finish and turn in next week, so I'll just let myself out.

Nothing RL-y going on right now, so I thought I'd just ramble about some Big Finish episodes I've listened to recently, for the whole two people that care -__-

'Yet another excuse to wear a fabulous frock.' 'Be a bit conspicuous, wouldn't it?' 'Another opportunity for me, Doctor.' )

[/Doctor Who]

And the numerous Final Fantasy Piano Collections make my life complete ♥

EDIT I just shifted my icons around again, but I did this before that and I'm not redoing it :-P Really, I pity anyone who uses that "notify me when this user uploads a new icon" option on me. PITY.

Doctor Who fans out there: there was a DW love meme on LJ not too long ago; I don't remember much about it except that it encompassed all eras and on the first page someone said FIVE and there were a bunch of people squeeing about Five. Can anyone link me up?

In a very strange place right now, mentally anyway. Can't say why because I'm not sure myself, but no matter. Still a trifle sick, but I'm getting over it. Today was the last day of the semester, last final I had to take. By the end of it I wasn't sure/didn't care what kind of tools were developed by early hominids, so I was taking wild stabs in the dark, but overall I think I did pretty well for not paying attention for the second half of the semester whilst doodling the weighted companion cube in my notebook :D Well. That's not fair. I wrote down pretty much everything the professor said, but studying it and absorbing it is another thing entirely. Or, uh, two. things. Whatever. But this all means I can embark on securing a second job to build monies for the Epic Roadtrip of Wonderfulness (I will always find a different verb every time I mention it now) this summer. GO GO GADGET SUMMER JOB.

Guess what came in the mail yesterday? A cooling pad for my laptop! \o/ I've been having problems with the heat for the past couple weeks, since California has decided to go all Tartarus on us, but I ended up ordering one off Amazon to aid me in my crusade to keep a laptop for over one year -__- It's made of light metal and has three well-placed fans and plenty of room to air out while remaining comfortable, so I'm really stoked about it. The only two things I've got to work on is paying back Sean and working on extending the battery life of the lappy. And if I just happen to be calling it Jarvis, it's all Tony Stark's fault.

Also, Iron Man has caused me to have a bit of a Robert Downey Jr. renaissance, but I realized I only have one movie he was in (Chaplin--FANTASTIC movie, btw, if anyone gets a chance to watch it). This saddens me greatly.

Doctor Who and me being a bit of a sappy, crying mess )

Back to my Five binge!

Happy Mother's Day, everyone, even though it's almost over. Hope everyone had a good day--me, not so much. It's never been one of those days that made very much of a difference since mine's been gone since I was six, but giving flowers and a card to my grandmother is just as nice. In case anyone's wondering, white orchids, purple at the center :3 After we did a little bbq for dinner, I spent the rest of my day backing up all my music and watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, definitely not comparing it to the new one (cuz I love them both) and contemplating just how much the Eighth Doctor's outfit looks like Wonka's XD

And for those of you who don't want to hear me ramble more about Doctor Who, you can skip this part. )

I wish I had a real brother, the kind that actually cared and used me for anything more than something for him to hurt for his amusement.

Go see Iron Man. It's fucking amazing.
