If it was your intention to make me ship Chang/Britta, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

With much thanks,

I have a feeling that [livejournal.com profile] jesshelga is the only one who will appreciate this, but as I was flipping through the channels, I happened upon the New York ep of Glee at the exact moment that Kurt and Rachel are singing "For Good" and... well, I couldn't help but imagine a future episode (like, just before they graduate, maybe?) where Kurt is singing this song with Karofsky. And they are both tearing up and looking at each other lovingly, and in their eyes you can see them thinking about all the things that could have been and all the things that should have been and all the things that were. And they still have this kind of continuing UST thing but never actually got together, just... they had a lot of almosts that they were both too afraid to explore. WHAT IS THIS? WHEN DID I START SHIPPING THEM LIKE THIS? I think I've been brainwashed. But here, watch this video and superimpose Kurt and Karofsky's faces over these dudes in your head, and you'll totally see what I mean. Really. You will.

안녕하세! 저예요, Firthgal! Sweet. Now if only I knew how to say/spell more than "Hello! It's me, Firthgal!" that would be awesome. But anyway, I never knew before tonight that I could get my keyboard to type in other alphabets. I had always wondered how my sis-in-law managed to type in Cantonese letters while she was IMing her buddies from Hong Kong.

Anywhoozle, I watched Shinjuku Incident today, which was Jackie Chan trying his hand at dramatic acting, and, I actually think that he did pretty darn well. I don't think he'll be winning an Oscar anytime soon, but, you know, it was kind of amazing compared to his usual performances. But, yeah, I much prefer goofy, lovable, fits into small spaces, amazing fight sequences Jackie Chan to Dramatic Actor Jackie Chan. This movie had a lot of body parts being cut off and blood squirting everywhere and really long dialog scenes and tragic characters of tragic tragicness, and that's just not what I want from a Jackie Chan film. But I think he's awesome for spreading his wings and I really don't blame him for wanting to try something new. And he's still making crazy adorable films like The Spy Next Door, so it's all good.

In other news, I've just found a film called Break Out, which has both Kim Seung Woo and Cha Seung Won, and they are both being insane, and I think I'm going to love it. It's like it was tailor-made for both me and [livejournal.com profile] piecesofalice. Although every KSW film ever has just left me scratching my head and wondering why the hell I sat through the whole movie, so... we'll see.

I think I've given up on watching Tamra The Island all the way through. While I love Park Kyu, I find that the further into the drama I get, the more I can't stand Beo Jin. She is so damn whiny and annoying and OMG, WHY DOES EVERY BOY EVER FALL IN LOVE WITH HER? WHAT IS HER APPEAL? Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh. I liked her in the beginning but have never quite gotten to the point where I buy her cuteness, and now the drama has completely lost me there. Whiny and waiting for a dude to save her ALL THE TIME is not cute. What the freak happened? In the beginning she was the one saving people. Now suddenly she needs Park Kyu for every little thing that happens to her? Blah. If she didn't bug me so much, I would probably have finished this drama by now, especially since I'm shipping William/Yan so very hard. Seriously, Yan is more hot and bothered by the William/Beo Jin relationship than Park Kyu is. And he's so focused on keeping William safe! He refuses to leave without him! It's clearly love. And I'll just make up my own ending for them, because I really cannot sit through anymore of Beo Jin's scenes.

And because it's been awhile:

Who comments the most on this journal? )

I find it kind of hilarious that [livejournal.com profile] 15lbpurebunny is still the top commenter (after me) and she hasn't even been on LJ in like 2 years. Good lord, woman, we had way too many conversations about Damian Lewis's nipples!

Oh oh oh! And since I can now type in Korean, I feel the need to type out the names of my Korean lovers. This will possibly take me all night to figure out:

I CANNOT STOP WATCHING THIS VID. AND SINGING ALONG.



LORD, PLEASE SAVE ME. I am even doing the little heart motion with my hands. *facepalm* I blame Walmart, that place is like Justin Bieber (Beiber?) central. Do you know how many t-shirts with Justin's face on them come through my line? And often times, the little girls are already wearing a shirt with him on it. And, oh god, the Justin dolls. And his *laughs* autobiography! And his posters. And his CDs. Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh. Was Walmart like that back in the days of N'Sync and Backstreet Boys and Hanson? Because I kind of used Walmart as my country music sanctuary back then, so I must not have noticed. I'm kind of surprised there's not more Jonas Brothers stuff. I guess they're old news now that the Beeb is out there. Anyway, at least this vid is using the Glee version of this ridiculous song, but is it really that much better? I don't know, I don't know.

Hey, guess what, guys! I ACTUALLY HAVE SOME JEFF/ANNIE FICS RECS! This is a momentous occasion, because I haven't enjoyed any J/A fics in months, but these two are pretty magnificent:

of all the gin joints by [livejournal.com profile] youcallitwinter - Technically this is more Annie-centric than Jeff/Annie-centric, but it's one of the greatest Annie POVs I've ever read, and it just rings so true to how hopeless everything feels when you have a crush on somebody and no one takes you seriously. It captures Annie's naivete really well, but it also captures her determination and how serious things are to her, even if no one believes her. This is my view of the Annie character through and through, which is why I think I enjoyed this fic so thoroughly. (also, this author wrote one of my favorite Will/Rachel fics awhile back)

That's When I Knew... by [livejournal.com profile] _carly_ - I'll just admit it right now, I'm kind of a sucker for pre-established relationship fic when it comes to Jeff/Annie. I just really enjoy seeing how people envision them as a couple, and this one pulled it off quite well. I think what I enjoy more though is that it's more of an ensemble piece, and the author uses the ensemble to create a picture of their relationship through flashbacks, and it's just the sweetest thing ever. I love it.
firthgal: (andy - cry)
I am still incredibly depressed. It is just wrong that a silly TV show has this much control over my mood. BUT GOD, MY HEART. Why did they have to go for that ending? WHYYYYYYYYYY?

Also, my throat is very sore, which just adds to my depression. Pretty sure I'm getting sick again, and I have to work the late shift tonight and tomorrow (and the early one on Sunday. Now does that make any sense whatsoever? I am going to get about 4 hours of sleep on Saturday night, and that's only if I'm lucky. Ugh. This weekend is sure to kill me).

I keep trying to find another drama full of cuteness to get excited over, but nothing seems to be doing the trick. I am kind of forcing myself to get into My Country Calls, because it looks adorable and happy and cracky, but I just can't get excited over it the way I was with Sign. DAMN IT, SHOW, DAMN IT!

Do you know what I want for Christmas more than anything? A hoodie that says "Would that this hoodie were a time hoodie!" I am that much of a dork. Get on this, NBC Store! I will be your first buyer. I have money now, you see! I am dangerous with money (granted, it's not much, and I'm supposed to be saving every penny, but, pah, that'll never happen. I already spend half my paycheck buying bottled waters every day because I drink like I've been trekking across the Sahara Desert for a week. I tried filling my cup at the water fountain for a few days, but do you know what that got me? Utterly sick. I sound like the Godfather right now. I fear that I will totally scare away/gross out all of my customers at work tomorrow).

Fact: I am now watching the Russian version of Yo Soy Betty, La Fea. It is almost exactly the same, except way more serious (and the supporting characters smoke like chimneys). It's crazy how they took a lot of the most hilarious moments from the Colombian version and turned them into kind of heartbreaking moments, like the one where Betty knocks over/falls on an exhibit when they're at that party for Ragtella and she's wearing the high heels. Totally hilarious on the Colombian version (especially since she just gets right back up with a big old smile as Armando rolls his eyes), but completely harsh and embarrassing for poor Katya. But, basically, all the big events are happening almost exactly as they did in the Colombian version, so, it's definitely a straight up adaption, but I like it most when it veers off into its own territory (like the bit where Katya's shoe got caught in the elevator). It's 200 episodes, so, it must become its own show somewhere along the line, but so far it's pretty faithful to the original (of course, I can't understand a word of the dialog, so who knows if that's different or not). I am having trouble falling in love with Andrey, though. He's not quite as nuanced as Armando (which is purely acting styles, because they are pretty much written the same. Clearly I am biased though, because Armando owns my heart forever and always).

So uh... I am not usually this excited about the Oscars, except perhaps for a few times in my childhood when Billy Crystal was hosting because I was massively in love with that dude. But anyway, CHRISTOPH. CHRISTOPH IS GOING TO FREAKING WIN AND HE IS GOING TO BE FREAKING ADORABLE AND I CANNOT FREAKING WAIT.



GORGEOUS FREAKING PROFILE, YES? OMG, I LOVE HIM. I AM EVEN TOO EXCITED TO RESIZE THE PIC, SO, SORRY IF I'VE STRETCHED YOUR LAYOUT, BUT, IT COULD NOT BE HELPED.

*ahem*

I am also hoping that Alec and Steve are totally awesome as opposed to the total lameness that the last few Oscars have produced. I mean, last year Will Ferrell didn't even show up! What is an Oscars without a wacky musical performance from Will Ferrell? Psh. Although I doubt he'll be there this year either since he and his wife just had a baby. BUT ANYWAY, IT DOESN'T MATTER, BECAUSE I AM WATCHING FOR CHRISTOPH. Seriously dudes, if Christoph doesn't win, I'm pretty sure I will cry for real. Is the supporting actor award shown early? I hope it is, because that way if he doesn't win, I won't have to sit through four hours of lameness for nothing. Although, since I've actually seen like 8 of the 10 movies nominated this year, I actually am interested in the other awards, too. But everyone keeps saying it's the most predictable Oscars year ever, so I guess I don't really have to watch to see who wins. But I need to see my boy Christoph win. BECAUSE HE IS BEAUTIFUL. LOOK AT THAT PROFILE.

Oh, did I mention that I watched Crazy Heart the other day? Yeah, it's a typical boring Oscar movie, so I do not doubt that Jeff Bridges will win best actor, especially since he spends half the film very convincingly puking his brains out. Seriously dudes, SO boring. And I like country music! But the weird thing is, as much as I love country music, I tend to kind of hate the movies about it. Except for Pure Country, because it was beyond corny and super adorable and it starred GEORGE MOTHEREFFING STRAIT, so, you know, I couldn't not love that one.



♥__♥

Award-winning acting right there. Clearly they were robbed at the Oscars that year. Ahahahaha, I love that it's the big, emotional ending to a rom-com and they don't even kiss. Oh, George.

firthgal: (lassiter juliet - first date)
1. I should never, ever drink soda pop (or anything with caffeine), because it pretty much keeps me wired for at least 10 hours. Like, I don't even want to know how long I'd stay awake if someone gave me a Red Bull. I'm guessing a week and a half.

2. Lassiter is clearly Juliet's soulmate, and I wish Psych would just consciously embrace this fact. Also, funniest episode of Psych ever, yes/no? It was definitely the most enjoyable ep since season 2. Also, even though there were angsty looks betwixt Shawn and Juliet, it totally didn't bother me, because CLEARLY LASSITER IS JULIET'S SOULMATE. The ending with the ex made me roll my eyes though, because you know it's just saying, "Hey, lookie here! FUTURE CONVENIENT LOVE TRIANGLE, BIYATCHES." Which means Shawn and Juliet will probably be a couple next season. Which means I will need a designated Psych barf bag come summer time. Although, maybe once they're an actual couple the stupid angsty looks will stop, which will be a total plus. But CLEARLY LASSITER IS JULIET'S SOULMATE. He just is. Also, he's tall. Just saying.

3. I enjoy Ugly Betty way more when I am shipping Betty/Marc/Amanda than when I ship Daniel/Betty. It didn't used to be like this, but post season 2, that's just a fact. I am kind of ready to finally just say screw Daniel/Betty, let Betty's happy ending be that she starts a magazine of her own with Marc and Amanda. What kind of magazine, I have no idea, but, it would be theirs, and it would be awesome. (I'm totally lying, I am still hoping for my happy Daniel/Betty ending, but there's no plausible way for it to happen in 6 episodes, therefore I've come to terms with the fact that it's just not going to happen). Also, why no preview for next week? Are we getting a repeat yet again?

4. The Middle still totally delights me, and tonight there was a story about Brick's first sleepover and it was with a kid that constantly acts like a cat, and, that kid was totally my nephew. Right down to his Asian-ness! It was a little scary. But seriously, the mittens, the talking in meows, the clawing at curtains... totally my nephew.

5. I also let Charlie Brown's Valentine Special play while I was surfing the net, and, I don't think I ever quite realized as a kid how in love Lucy is with Charlie. When I was little, I always thought she was just a big bully, but watching it now, and thinking back to the cartoons I saw as a child, it's pretty clear to me that Lucy had a thing for him. Also, Peppermint Patty and Marcie totally went on a threesome date with Charlie Brown. HOLY CRAP. I never knew that the Peanuts strips were so progressive. And now it's obvious that Marcie is not a lesbian as everyone likes to proclaim. She is very clearly bi. Also, Snoopy kisses Charlie a lot.

6. I rewatched Scott's Tots last night because I think I'm seriously shipping Michael/Erin (I even started a fic! Which will probably never see the light of day, but I wrote a paragraph that I am quite fond of!), and, I forgot how much I actually loved this episode. Andy doing his baby voice! Michael doing his Elvis voice! (and saying "Well, thank you, thank you a lot" instead of "Thank you, thank you very much") Michael being unnecessarily mean to Erin! Dwight doing spot-on imitations of Kevin, Stanley, and Toby over the phone! Erin adorably singing the little rap song about Michael in the car! And... Michael snapping at her. ERIN MAKING MICHAEL FEEL BETTER, despite the fact that he did nothing but constantly put her down! Michael realizing in that moment what a douche he's been without anyone having to outright tell him! Erin's little smile after Michael tells her she's been doing a great job! Michael asking her what her hopes for her future are! MICHAEL AND ERIN HARMONIZING ON THE MICHAEL SCOTT RAP! Andy actually doing things unrelated to Erin! And speaking to people that aren't named Erin! Dwight and Ryan making an alliance to BRING JIM DOWN, a plotline that has been completely forgotten about by the writers and probably most of the audience! Basically, I really loved this ep, because it was full of the painful, cringe-worthy Michael and the sweet, genuine, insightful Michael, and the ensemble actually got to be useful. I think maybe even Angela had a line? Possibly? You remember her, right? Does she even still work there? Sometimes I wonder. You all know I love my Andy, but sometimes I think the screentime that is being given to Andy/Erin is preventing those little ensemble moments that I love so very much. A random comment from Creed, Meredith being gross, Stanley rolling his eyes, Phyllis being sweetly catty, Angela being cattishly catty, Kelly being dramatic, Oscar being put upon, Kevin giggling... it feels like the season is really veering away from all that, and I'm pretty sure it started when the show got serious about Andy/Erin. I wouldn't mind it all that much if Andy and Erin were capable of being funny when they're together, but... they're not, and Scott's Tots is a perfect example of the fact that they are utterly hilarious when playing off of pretty much anyone else. *sigh* That whole star-crossed, adorable overload didn't work with me for Jim/Pam, nor did it work with me for Michael/Holly, and it's really not working for me with Andy/Erin. I just wish The Office would stop playing the same love story over and over again. Michael/Jan and Ryan/Kelly managed to be completely unique love stories of their own, so I know this show is able to do a non-Jim/Pam formula, I just think they've forgotten how.

Ugh, I did not mean to whine about the downfall of The Office! I should be in bed. So, I'm going to go... get in bed.

OH! OH! Before I do that, everyone and their mother should read On Being Felicity (Or, Annie Edison Likes the Simplicity of Lists) by [livejournal.com profile] piecesofalice, because it's utterly brilliant. It's everything I've ever hoped and dreamed to find in a Jeff/Annie fic (and it has a whole lot of other stuff that I never even fathomed, because, well, I'm not that awesome)
