ONE MORE TIME (although this will probably be a yearly thing, lulz)

2011 Challenge )
bohemia: (Celebs - Anton tragic eyes)
Just finished (honestly: the credits are still rolling and this song is hauntingly beautiful /tedmosby) my Anton Yelchin marathon, or as I call it my Can Get Zat (and if you get that portmanteau reference, you win ten points) marathon. It included his episodes of Criminal Minds, Law and Order: CI and Fright Night, The Beaver and Like Crazy. Criminal Minds was the more entertaining of the episodes; he was barely in Law and Order and L&O just bores me to tears unless it's SVU. Fright Night was poorly characterized at first, and the story was very much, "hey, so, here are the characters--keep up, the action starts NOW!" And then Christopher Mintz-Plasse stole the movie yet again. And I just ordered the BD edition from Amazon, so there is that recommendation.

The Beaver I almost bought on a whim back when I was buying my mom's birthday gifts in October. I'm so glad I didn't. It was basically equal parts The Squid and the Whale (which I found painfully awkward) and Lars and the Real Girl (which I just found flat). The only redeeming part was when I started to notice that the entire movie was filmed in and around The Bronx. It's something I think I already had known about, but forgot.

BUT LIKE CRAZY. I saw the trailer when I went to see Our Idiot Brother and felt very, "NOT SURE IF WANT" because it looked like a non-musical 500 Days of Summer... with Anton Yelchin. But eventually I thought it might be more along my lines and put it on my list of things to watch. Because if it wasn't... HEY, ANTON YELCHIN TO STARE AT FOR MOST OF THE MOVIE. And when it started I thought it WAS 500 Days of Summer, but then it gets good and ugh, guyssss. It's a movie that gets you in the heart. Maybe more so for me because I would ultimately like to know what that's like, to have someone I care about that much and I would do crazy things for, but at the same time I'm very "INTIMACY? WHAT IS THAT. DO NOT WANT." I... am very much a robot, who knew. Anyway, this is going on my Amazon list, so there's that rec.

Guys, I follow way too fucking many people on Tumblr. But I don't want to unfollow my LJ friends and some of your Tumblr names aren't the same as on LJ. So give me your Tumblr names, so I know not to unfollow--or refollow if I did accidentally (I tend to go through every few months and unfollow blogs who haven't blogged in months).

So I'm slowly getting back into TV. And then after that, maybe I'll get into movies again, or video games. I miss stories. (Getting back into) Reading is a slow process, but it's at a pace I'm accepting for now. Podcasts are another story.

I'm just going to ramble about some shows now, the things I'm watching and such. I have to catch up on Burn Notice this weekend and next up are Happy Endings and Man Up because it's faster to binge 30 minute shows!

I gave up on Suburgatory. I like it, but when I was collecting links to download on Friday I went, "It's not THAT important," and clicked out of the post. I'm having more fun with the other shows.

American Horror Story )

HIMYM and Chuck in general )

Leverage )

Misfits )

Hell on Wheels )

Grimm )

Bored to Death )

How to Make it in America )

I haven't watched the newest Hung yet, but that show keeps getting better, too. HBO, YOU'RE ON POINT. At least, with my shows. I hear Boardwalk Empire is getting even more bland than it used to be.

In other news, I know I tend to get into cycles where I'm like, "I WISH I KNEW A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT. I'M GONNA LEARN AN INSTRUMENT. INSTRUMENTS ARE EXPENSIVE. I HAVE A KEYBOARD. FUCK IT, MY FINGERS DON'T WORK THAT WAY. MUSIC IS HARD." But guys, OCARINAS. With my new phone I was able to download an Ocarina app. But it doesn't work properly (you can't play a D note, says one comment on the Marketplace... I just know I can't get a higher note than C) so I decided to price real ones. I won't buy a ceramic one because lololol I am a clumsy person who will break that shit eventually. And also, wouldn't it get nasty, being a wind instrument? I remember the recorder from freshman year of high school getting disgusting with my spit. I don't even know if I'm going to buy that particular brand--apparently there are lots of ocarina makers? Anyway, I figure plastic ones are decent enough. And it's geeky enough that I'd stick with it just for the geek factor, if not the musical accomplishment. WE SHALL SEE.

I hope everyone who celebrates it had a good American Thanksgiving, doing whatever it is that you do. It's hard to say lately, since sometimes people prefer to spend the day away from family and with friends instead, some people prefer to spend it giving back to the community, etc. Some people want the holiday to go away because of the racist connotations. To which I say, congratulations, almost every one of America's holidays have racist undertones. How about we evolve instead of dragging us back to the heydays. /random rant

I'm also overly cautious in the holiday season because things always tend to go to shit for someone close to me. So all of you stay safe because you are all my favorites and I don't want anything happening to any of you! <3333

Thanksgiving was okay for me. Spent the morning by myself watching the parade until everyone else woke up and/or came over and then ate. We did Boston Market this year again, so there wasn't too much to clean up but I regretted eating as much as I did because my stomach feels like it has a permanent cramp today. Thing is, I over-served myself and felt bad not eating all of the turkey because I hate seeing those "don't eat me" stuff on TV. I can't ever let turkey go to waste on Thanksgiving because of it.

Anyway, I got some online deals for my Christmas shopping today, but not too many. Mainly because most of my shopping is going to be gift cards and it's stupid to buy a gift card online when they are pretty much available at any store I go to anyway.

You know when you get stuck on a song and have to listen to it FOREVER on repeat? Last week was "Super Bass" and this week, amusingly, is "Love You Like a Love Song." Right now, collectively, "LYLALS" is at 27 plays on this computer. And yet, all day I've had "I May Lose Everything" by Ministry of Magic in my head. The contrast between the themes of those songs concern me a lot. I take a lot of stock in earworms. Then again, the song-on-repeat for the week up to Halloween was "Party Rock" and my earworms then were "Ievan Polka" and "Po Pi Po." SOMETIMES I JUST LIKE FLUFF.

Meme answers time!

07. My favorite book.

I don't really have a favorite book. I like dark lit, though. It comes from the SPN fandom and their fucked-up fics that I really enjoyed, I think. I had this book of fairy tales for a class that was also really cool because guys, I know Hollywood is leaning towards fucked-up fairy tales for the Twilight set now, but original fairy tales are really fucked-up.

10. My favorite animal.

Sheep! Lambs, Ewes, Goats... I love them. Non-farm animal faves would be birds, in general. Except maybe Flamingos. Too flashy!

15. My favorite songs right now.

"Super Bass" cover by Chad Sugg, "Break Even (Falling to Pieces)" cover by Alex Goot, "Stay For the Weekend" by Alex Goot, "It Girl" cover by Alex Goot


19. My favorite ice cream flavor.

I go back and forth on this! Butter Pecan or Mint Chocolate Chip. Or Cookie Dough. Or Vanilla, if we're doing basics.

20. The one place I wish I was right now.

Chicago, or somewhere where Quidditch was being practiced today? OR IN A THEATRE WATCHING LIKE CRAZY.

30. What I would do if I won the lottery.

My answer is always the most boring one you can think of. It's the Ravenclaw in me. I'd pay off my loan, buy a house and put the rest in the bank.

31. What I love most about myself.

My sense of self. It's been a long road of discovery but I enjoy how "okay" I am with my life and how things turned out for me. I don't have major regrets and don't find myself sad and wishing I was living another sort of life or wishing I had a certain amount/kind of friends. I don't need people to be happy.

38. Where I would like to live.

If I could just move anywhere right now, I think I'd go to San Francisco? But I've also never been there so I might regret that. Chicago, maybe, because I do adore it. Or Boston, since I feel like it's close enough to New York that I could just come to NYC whenever I want.

39. The nicest thing anyone's ever said to me.

I know there was a specific comment that used to hold this title, but I can't remember it off the top of my head. It was about my writing back in school, though. I probably have an entry on it somewhere under my lehman tag.

41. What I can hear right now.

The birds chirping from the hallway, my nephew chattering about MW3 to my sister, the washing machine (I couldn't remember the name for a second and wrote "the laundry washer contraption") going CHUNKA-CHUNKA-CHUNK-WHRRRRR. As it does, because it does.


Also, I got a new phone :D It's a Epic II Galaxy S Touch named Macon Junday. The deal I got from Best Buy was $100 cheaper than going to upgrade at Sprint itself and I got a free blu-ray player that, when it ships, will be able to use my phone as a remote. The player is like $90 itself, so I basically saved around $200. WIN. Although most things transferred over, my backed-up apps from Astro File Manager apparently DID NOT so now I can't seem to play Skip-Bo on this phone (they removed the app from the store in March of last year, so I can't re-download it). Currently looking into how to rectify this. I NEED MY SKIP-BO. I also need to save it from scratches this week until the case comes in. Usually I buy cases at the store when I buy the phone, but they were $15 cheaper online and so was the screen protector(s). So I bought it online along with the rest of my Christmas shopping and didn't have to pay shipping costs! SAVING MONEY, I CAN DO ZAT.

And now suddenly we decided we're going to go see Puss in Boots so I have to finish this, post it and run!

So much to talk about, so little time.

Robert Schwartzman at Webster Hall )

THE WEEKEND WAS THE GREATEST. World Cup of Quidditch V. It started out already exhausting because I really needed rest after being at work all of Thursday and then having to wake up early Friday. Saturday (and sometimes Sunday, if I can get away with it) is my day to really enjoy sleeping in with nowhere to go. Instead I woke up at 7am, and left to pick up [ profile] splits_thesky at Penn Station. We walked up to Times Square, where they were re-creating Super Mario Land for the day. It was still pretty early so the crowd wasn't ridiculous and we were able to observe and leave quickly. I didn't realize until later that they were actually giving away the Tanooki tails and ears the volunteers were wearing. I wanted a pair. :(

Then Quidditch happened )

I'm like an episode away from being caught up with American Horror Story. THE HELL IS GOING ON.
bohemia: (Celebs - D.Criss trouble with trebles)
Tomorrow is Halloween and I don't have more than an idea for a costume. I'm past giving a shit at this point. With the recent snow I doubt it'll be warm enough for what I was planning, and given how it rains every time [ profile] splits_thesky and I meet up, it'll probably be wet, too.

There's so many movies out I want to see but I don't have the will to get up and go see them or the attention span to bother downloading older movies to watch here. This weekend has been pretty depressing for me. I've been productive, but I feel hopeless and lame. I'm looking forward to drinks tomorrow because I sort of need that right now.

There are some bright spots at work, but other things make it not so great. But what else is new.

Have a video:

I'm doing a job search and trying to make business cards but I just scrapped the whole design I had spent a month on because I think I should wait until my production company has a legit name. And now I'm fighting between making cards just to give out to friends and people I meet and business cards for when people stop me when I'm on a shoot and wonder what I'm doing. Then I have to shop around for the best deal on printing a bunch of these babies. And possibly getting some cards, too. It's like being productive in the most off-handed way possible.

While I'm doing that, I'm also going through all the new shows I have been wanting to check out. So far Revenge and Person of Interest and 2 Broke Girls are out (sorry Kat Dennings, I can't deal with how unfunny this is), Whitney is my new My Boys in terms of characters I relate to (also hai, Chris D'Elia, plz to be more places) and I'm thisclose to getting back into HIMYM and Psych because I miss the shows. Rather, I keep seeing ads for HIMYM while watching FX Shows and it kills me to not know what's going on with those crazy NY transplants and I saw a Psych trailer and I got angry that I wouldn't be seeing the new episodes it featured. Also out: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I watched six episodes back to back and didn't laugh once.

Next up is catching up on HBO shows: Hung, How To Make It In America and Bored to Death tomorrow, then Wilfred, Leverage and Alphas next week.
bohemia: (Anime - Miku)
Accidental hiatus! Sorry, last week I don't even remember what happened, and then we had the day off on Monday so I was enjoying that and cleaning out my bookmarks and Instapaper links and that kind of stuff. I think I mentioned that. Then it was my mom's birthday Thursday so I was running around looking for another birthday idea because our plan to get an iPad crapped out (my dad told me he didn't have enough saved up--which, wait, WHY NOT, how much is he actually getting here, I hope it's more than me; I can't believe that my sister is actually carrying us all here). Then my mom got sick and I had to go to the New York Comic Con to do camera for my job (I wanted to go, obviously. It was supposed to be shoot Thursday and Friday, enjoy the next two days. It ended up being shoot Thursday, Friday and half of Saturday because of one panel they wanted me to cover. I ended up interviewing the guy from The Group That Shall Not Be Named, the HP Meetup group from NYC that I have yet to actually officially join, the CGI Supervisor, an actor from Red Tails, this Lucasfilm movie on the Tuskagee Airmen that looks AWESOME, etc. We got some cool footage and I got some free stuff from the Rockstar booth and random shirts from I had planned on seeing panels all day Saturday and Sunday but work and my underestimation of the popularity of Bone and Miku Hatsune interfered.

And I was going to catch up on Tumblr and TV but trololol I have to go to bed now.
bohemia: (Celebs - Awkberg)
I meant to watch TV today and instead got stuck reading fanfic I've been meaning to read. Then I cleared out my bookmark folders of TLDR links, all the fics I've been recced, organized my instapaper account so I can get to the fics on there faster, and started making a logo/brand for my production company that I've dreamed of making for a while. I'm not going to be able to move to San Francisco for my dream job and internet TV is cool, but what comes after that? So I'm focusing more on becoming a producer for a magazine/talk show or a writer for a comedy. We'll see how things go. Might as well do it myself, right?

Other than that, things are pretty chill. I'm entirely focused on this production company dream right now and clearing out all these stories I've been dying to read. I need to make a budget for:

- Robert Schwartzman CD/Concert (SURPRISE, I KNOW)
- The World Cup of Quidditch (btw, if anyone is coming to NYC for that and wants to make it a fandom meetup I AM ALL FOR THAT)
- Xmas and birthday gifts
- My new phone

...not necessarily in that order, but FALL, Y U SO BUSY.

I need to clear out my flist here, too. Not a cut, just... all the comms I skip lately. I need to do the same at Twitter and Tumblr, too.
bohemia: (Misc - Macs)
I had a huge rant about how I've dragged through work this week and how the life has been sucked out of me by various things kicking me around just because, or so it feels.

But things don't matter right now. It's a good thing my sister isn't home tonight to poke fun at things like she usually does when I Care Too Much™ about someone dying. I grew up on Apple products. My first computer was a Classic II, followed by a Bondi blue iMac that I saved up for. That died my senior year of high school and then I was surprised with the G5 I'm typing this on now. I am saving up for what would be my third iPod, although I still use my very first 3 Gen one as a hard drive. People talk about how their products are overpriced but fuck you, they last.

Anyway, the man had a hand in everything that we do now. If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac, laptop, etc. you know his influence. But Gestures? The mouse? The desktop GUI? The PDA? Toy Story? CGi-animated movies? Touch screen? I can't even name them all. I can't even really focus. Suffice it to say:

Rest in Peace, Steve Jobs. You will be deeply missed.
bohemia: (Misc - Albrechts)
More things:

- Diggnation is ending in December. I know most don't care, but I posted most of my thoughts via Twitter yesterday. I'm behind by almost a year, but I'm glad there were more episodes. It was supposed to end last December and when it didn't, I was glad. They probably won't come back to NYC, but I'm glad they at least made it here--they always talked about doing tours, college or otherwise, around the US/world and never did. I'm much more okay with it ending now than I was when they announced last year that they were going to stop soon. And with that chapter of their lives closing, so does mine. It's time for me to move on and maybe be more of a producer of entertainment and not so much a consumer.

- To that end, my fall schedule isn't much. Right now I'm just downloading all the aired episodes of new stuff to see if I like them but I'm not keeping up with a lot of my old shows. It's weird, but the only ones I'm keeping are It's Always Sunny, Archer, and Modern Family. Well, I'm keeping others that don't really adhere to summer/fall seasons too, like Leverage and my USA shows (not Psych, though, I've finally given up on that one). But I'm testing out 2 Broke Girls, Whitney, Person of Interest, Revenge, Suburgatory and Once Upon A Time. I was going to watch Playboy's Club but it's already canceled so TROLOLOL MAKE MY LIFE EASIER. Hopefully I'll have time to watch them all on Friday!

- Alex Goot is my herrooooo. I don't think I knew he covered this song, but STARS IN MY EYES FOREVER, GOOT. <33333 (Youtube is being weird, so you only get a link. :/ )
bohemia: (Misc - ILYM Rush concert)
I am in the process of uploading my Chicago vlogs (there are many, I'm sorry, IDK when I premiered a reality show, but apparently I have), but I also went to concerts last week and just got my Pottermore email (!!) so there are things to update about.

But I'm in the middle of Chapter One of Pottermore and was taking my time, but then it crashed while I was marauding around (see what I did there?) moment two, so I'm sitting here letting refreshevery and YouTube do their thing, and writing this entry. PRODUCTIVITY, I HAS IT.

Anyway, when Pottermore gets back up, I'm FireboltLight136. Add me! And at this rate I will get sorted in November. STAY TUNED.

So concerts, yes? )


I'M A RAVENCLAW!!!! OMG, I HAVE NEVER BEEN HAPPIER TO SEE THOSE BLUE RESULTS ON A PAGE. Also, I love how almost everyone in Ravenclaw has an owl. I ALMOST GOT A TOAD, HOW WEIRD WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN. My wands irl and in Pottermore don't match up, but I can TAKE THAT DIFFERENCE because the walnut wand on Alivan's is ugly.
bohemia: (Misc - Nutrionist's apprentice)
** This entry will probably be too late to be properly about her birthday, but the sentiment is still there. This was originally meant to be typed up for our ~ anniversary ~ in August but Hurricane Irene had a hissy fit and threw off my groove that weekend. So I typed it up in Chicago while she was sleeping. :P **

When I was growing up I had a few friends, but they were always more of the kind that did things with me because I was just the only other kid around, or we had shared interests. Whenever I would watch TV or movies and friends would do extraordinary things for their friends I wondered what universe they were in. My friends were always sort of mean. We'd do mean things to each other but that's just what I knew. I didn't know what it was like to have friends who did things selflessly for me or out of genuine love. I guess by today's terms my old friends would be frenemies. They kept me on my toes and I was always aware that I might leave the room and return to find my bag thrown on the top of a library shelf, my action figure missing, money "lost" from my wallet or my cell thrown to the back of a dark theatre. Sometimes I'd even have to find my own way back home because my friends left without me or hear "I don't really care about this, Lia," whenever I rambled on about who knows what. That's just how my friends were.

So when I became friends with [ profile] splits_thesky over livejournal, I didn't think much of it. I'd had internet friends before. They were cool, but they only added the shared interest aspect to IRL friendships. Now I can say that my internet friends are some of my closest and best friends, especially the ones I've met on LJ. But [ profile] splits_thesky really changed a lot of things for me. I can't really say where I would be without her. The majority of the traveling I have done in the last few years is entirely because of her. I wouldn't have been able to go to Chicago, Boston, Philly, Princeton or DC as quickly as I have or even be planning future trips to other places without her. Things like Tippo the Hippo, "Is that David Henrie?", ChanBell, Charming Potato, Team Tesla, Igor, "He just wanted a hug!" and "That shit was tight as hell!" wouldn't mean anything. And if they did, they wouldn't mean what they do right now. I've had so many experiences that are because of [ profile] splits_thesky and I'm eternally grateful to her for that.

But it's not just about where we've gone physically (hurr hurr) together, but how she's made me a better person and what she's made me realize about myself and my other friendships. She's made me less selfish and more thoughtful--I've started picking up random gifts for her and others when out and about because I've watched her take special trips to stores just for her nephews or her brothers and tell stories about geeky purchases comprised of mostly gifts for others. The only time I'd ever buy things for others before was because they had a birthday soon or Christmas time was coming. She's made me a better listener because she listens to the random shit I'm into and reads my ADD comments about random links and long entries about this one time that a podcast came to NYC and makes me want to be that sort of friend to her as well. Splits has done a lot of things relatively selfless (youuuu are not a Hufflepuff, my friend, we know this) for me in ways that no one really ever has. And it's by knowing her and seeing these things play out every day over texts and through daily interactions that I start to realize that she's my first ever real, true, friend.

She's been as patient with me in real life as she has online and somehow she keeps coming back to hang out with me in a city that she could take or leave and keeps inviting me back to her various homes at college and at her family's home. She's the only one willing to travel to hole-in-the-walls and listen to me drone on about that one guy I know or that person I like and somehow make it seem like she cares and isn't actually shaking her head and sighing, "Oh, Lia, you little lost thing, you," on the other end of the phone. She will drag me to someplace she's never been for the ~*~experience~*~ and we'll make it our own experience, even if it sucks horribly, like the time we went to Bronx Comic Con and had to walk for blocks in costumes for a contest we never entered.

I sincerely hope everyone has a chance to have at least half the kind of friend that [ profile] splits_thesky is for me. Because I know how it is to live life without someone like her and it's not something I would ever recommend.

bohemia: (Push - OMGWTFCHINA)

Basically, I will be bringing my laptop and my phone, so I will be around sporadically, but not like usual. Urm, I'm going to try vlogging the trip, but IDK how charged my camera will be. WE SHALL SEE. And there will be pictures, afterward, obviously.

And probably voice posts at night, along the way.

Entourage, season 8 )

P.S. I bought this G4 computer during Entourage's first season. My first desktop on it was the official desktop from HBO's website. So this computer has officially outlasted an entire TV show. Go, Ryland!

I've been meaning to make an entry for a while. Can't remember what my proposed topics were.

I did want to showcase some youtube videos I adored lately. If you're friends with me on Facebook (you should be, if you aren't), you've probably seen the posts that go through when I like or favorite a YT vid.

Youtube videos under here )

Anyone have any suggestions for digital cameras? I'm not buying one anytime soon but I really am due for an upgrade and DSLR cameras are still quite out of my price range. I would look at reviews but other than brand loyalty I wouldn't know where to start.

Also, I am just realizing that Rock Band 3 is out, and while I got over the fascination of the rhythm games, I DO WANT THE PRO EXPERIENCE so I'm looking into saving up for that game, too. Also I hear the customization is killer on the create-a-character thing, so that's always fun. *forever a Sims girl*

bohemia: (Celebs - Starkid - D. Nanas)
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent mine with [ profile] splits_thesky since Hurricane Irene ruined our plans last weekend. Actually, it still ruined our plans this weekend because the hiking trail we were supposed to go on was still closed because of it. And the movie we wanted to see, Fright Night, wasn't playing anymore at the theatre we were planning on going to. We saw Cowboys & Aliens instead, and it was fun even if it didn't explain ANYTHING about the aliens.

We also went shopping at Wegman's, a grocery store I had never been to before but is AWESOME and has almost everything in one spot. I loved the ethnic food section, not only because there was one, but because the Spanish section was entirely Goya brand beans, rice and seasoning. *dies* I bought a Malta though, because I hadn't had one in a while and I like them, lol. I don't think I've ever had Goya's Maltas, but it was decent. Also the vegetable section was crazy large. Wegman's is basically what happens when you put Stop & Shop, the hot food section of Key Food and the dry goods section of a bigger Manhattan Duane Reade together. Food you can feel good about, indeed.

Other things we did included planning out our entire trip to Chicago next week, watching The Perfect Score (I fell asleep, but it's okay because I own it and have seen it before) and some National Geographic documentaries on Dinosaurs with terrible graphics and horrible decisions when it came to dinosaur reactions to events (I also fell asleep here, different night, but the cliffhangers were boring). Earlier that same day we cooked ourselves lunch (everything we had bought at Wegman's) that consisted mostly of vegetables: vegetable soup with carrots, celery, mushrooms, onions, broccoli, spinach, parnips, etc. and portobello mushroom sliders with avocado pieces in a sandwich. I even had roasted garlic hummus as a spread. And then for dinner we went to a barbecue with delicious vegetables and watermelon. We also took [ profile] splits_thesky's dog to the dog park where we got bit by the most mosquitoes I have seen since I was eight. I'm sure it was a mix of the barbecue and the dog park, but my legs are currently sporting 14 different bites. :(

Also, neither of us got our Pottermore emails yet and we are highly frustrated about that. POTTERMORE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING.

I also took video of the cooking portion of the weekend, so we shall see if I can turn it into a vlog. I meant to vlog more and kept forgetting. This is the problem with not vlogging and then really wanting to start. You don't remember to start.
