1. I finally got around to deleting all the drek that was installed on the computer that I sent to the shop and re-installing the stuff I use. Now the computer won't acknowledge the printer. Splendid. (I will try again tomorrow.)

2. [personal profile] dine recc'd a fic that includes these lines:

"Captain America is alive, Brad. He's alive and he's fighting aliens in New York."
"Goddamn it, Ray," says Brad. "Stop calling me when you're high."

It's a really cute Ray/Brad fic, totally angst free. If you feel there is just not enough Ray Person fic out there, check it out. I Would Wait Lifetime To Give In To You.

3. I'm sure everyone in the world has seen it that wants to, but for my own reasons I'm posting it here. The Supernatural Parody, which is brilliant and hilarious and created by some very talented people. It's done to the tune of Shake It Off and I really enjoyed watching it.

Much like the film itself, this post has become far more sprawling and unwieldy than it was ever intended to be, so I might as well post it now before I lose the plot completely. I reserve the right to change my mind on some things once I manage to see it a second time.

WickedHorror includes Selfless, Beer Bad, Him, The Prom, The Zeppo, Once More With Feeling & Earshot in their "Episodes of Buffy That Shouldn't be Funny But Are". "For such a self-reflective episode, it still bears her trademark sense of humor and the pre-demon flashbacks are some of the funniest moments of the entire series...The best moment comes at the end, a direct response to FOX, when Xander asks ‘What did we learn about beer?” and Cave Buffy replies “Foamy... It’s a ridiculous episode, way funnier than it should be, especially as the girls decide what they’re going to do to prove they love this boy the most...there’s still something incredibly funny about a teenager training hell hounds to attack people in formal wear because a girl refused to go with him...The emotions, the angst, all of it becomes hilarious as Xander keeps interrupting the gang during what appears to be some of their most doomed and darkest moments up to that point....It’s fun, it’s incredibly funny—particularly that mustard number...but there’s a moment early on when Xander jokes “I always knew the lunch lady was going to take us out with that Mulligan Stew.”

SPIKE: (happily) Now that was fun!
ADAM: You were successful?
SPIKE: ("no problem" scoff) Easier than I'd thought it'd be, too.
ADAM: You're sure?
SPIKE: (scoffs) Feel it in my bones. It's, uh . . called the Yoko Factor. Don't tell me you've never heard of the Beatles?
ADAM: I have. (stands) I like "Helter Skelter."
SPIKE: What a surprise. The point is, they were once a real powerful group. It's not a stretch to say they ruled the world. And when they broke up everyone blamed Yoko, but the fact is the group split itself apart, she just happened to be there. And you know how it is with kids. They go off to college, they grow apart. Way of the world.
ADAM: So you separated the Slayer from her friends. I'm pleased.
SPIKE: Well . . since we've got all our ducks in a row and not talking to each other . . guess it's time for the grand plan, huh? You know the one where I get the chipectomy. You got everything you need, right?
ADAM: No. There's one more thing.

opening credits I like

deird1: Joey and Pacey at the prom, with text "I remember everything" (Joey Pacey remember)
[personal profile] deird1
So, I was thinking about opening credits that I like...

Kinda just what it says on the tin, really...

several samples )

Notice any similarities?

All of them are about 50 seconds long, and show a great deal of the theme of the show, without showing anything at all of the show itself. With funky music of the appropriate style.

And aren't they cool?


Honourable mention must go to The American President (a movie, so disqualified, but the credits make me feel proud to be an American and I'm not one), Battlestar Galactica (for the initial theme-part combined with the spectacularly fast race through the upcoming episode), and Farscape (for being the coolest set of credits that don't fit my description of credits-I-like above).

EW chooses Angel as DB's "Who Did They Play Best". "For starters, this brooding vampire with a heart of gold poetically fell in love with the vampire slayer. Right up there with Kelly Taylor, Angel has suffered a lot. Death. Hell. Gypsy curses. Love. Becoming a puppet. And yet, he perseveres—fighting the good fight, always primed to “help the helpless.” Cult status achieved. Winner: Angel (vampires live forever)". And AH wins as Willow . "One was a brainy witch; the other an artistic kindergarten teacher. Both were endearing, had lesbian tendencies, and yet they were completely their own characters. Throughout her nine-year run, we see a lifetime of Lily (and Marshall) through breakups, weddings, hairstyles, slaps, births, and deaths. Yet Willow prevails. Our favorite little witch went from goofy sidekick to supreme being, and played a central part in saving the world—a lot. Am I just bitter over HIMYM‘s finale? Nah, Willow wins. Always.
Winner: Willow Rosenberg".

So it turns out I am not dead...

Though it was touch and go for a while there.

Good lord, it has been over a month since I last posted anything and *mumbledy mumble* since I last responded to comments, because I am a terrible human being. Let's see... well, on the Crohn's front, the Humira worked really well for a while until it didn't, and now I am sick and kinda miserable again. We are running out of new drugs to try, though, so the best option might be to stick with the injections. The thing about Humira is that it has been on the market for years, but it is generally assumed that the FDA-approved dosage is not sufficient for a lot of people, hence why they are doing clinical trials at a higher dose like the one I just did. And I will say, when I was getting 4 injections a week, I felt a LOT better. But  after the first month, I dropped down to the approved dose of one injection every other week, which ain't doing it for me. Once the trial's over, I can maybe go up to weekly instead of every other, so hopefully that's enough? I have a few more weeks on this clinical trial and then another colonoscopy YAY

On the plus side, I have not regained the 15 pounds I lost, and I have acquired a new skill in administering subcutaneous injections? \o/

This whole trial has coincided - naturally! - with the BUSIEST TIME OF THE YEAR in work, since we had our big conference thingy last week, in which I have a WHOLE DAY that I am responsible for and it basically takes over my life for the six weeks prior. It went really well and everyone was happy and then I came home and literally slept for 18 hours. Oddly enough, prior to the conference, I'd been having some really unpleasant insomnia, possibly as a side effect of the Humira? But apparently I managed to cure that by working myself to the point that I literally could not stay awake any longer. (Or the insomnia's just not affecting me as much now that I'm on a lower dose of the drug.) Yay?

And of course, because Marvel is COMPLETELY INCONSIDERATE about scheduling their movie premieres during the WORST WEEK OF MY LIFE, I have not had the opportunity to squee over Avengers: Age of Ultron. Then again, perhaps it was for the best that I wasn't posting linkspams during the press tour, because it was a pretty epic shitshow, lol. Seriously. Joss was tired and cranky and then quit Twitter. RDJ walked out of a really uncomfortable interview. Chris Evans was noticeably drunk for the whole thing. Jeremy Renner was a douche. And poor Mark Ruffalo was publicly begging his own employers to put out some goddamned Black Widow merchandise because Disney doesn't care about girl fans.

I did get to see the movie, and I will have a long rambly post about it at some point. I was kind of hoping to see it again before I tried to gather my thoughts, since I was fairly exhausted and just wanted to squeeze it in before the conference started because I knew if I didn't, I'd totally spoil myself. But I'm not sure when I'm going again, and I have almost 2,000 words written, lol, so we'll see. 

I feel like there are a lot of TV things I should want to talk about, but it's all a bit of a blur. I sort of gave up on posting linkspams, what with being exhausted and not having any time. But I'm actually not sure I want to go back to them? Way back in yesteryear, I used to have a lot more ~thoughts and, like, wrote actual posts about actual things, and I would like to do more of that, if I can remember how to sentence the words and whatnot. The linkspamming is sort of a shortcut to say "hey things are happening with things I care about!" without having to put a lot of thought into it, whereas ideally I would maybe address fewer of those things but actually have something to say about them? I don't know. Maybe I will just disappear for another six weeks and only pop up to reassure you I am still breathing.

So, how have YOU been? What's new? What have I missed?

SPIKE: It's over. Just like that. Not that I thought I had a chance anyway.
ANGEL: At least I have a girlfriend.
SPIKE: Still…
ANGEL: Yeah.
SPIKE: The Immortal?!
ANGEL: I mean, come on!
SPIKE: She's smarter than that.
ANGEL: She'd never fall for a centuries-old guy with a dark past who may or may not be evil.
