birthday + six feet under s4 + MISHA!  
Or, random huge-ass post of random.

1. Happy birthday to missy_useless!! ♥ ♥ I hope that you're having the most amazing day/time and that next year is utterly awesome for you. :D and if you want to throw me a prompt I can see if something comes out of it. ;) Meanwhile happy birthday again!

2. So everyone in SPN fandom knows about Misha sending out puzzle pieces because he couldn't send real rhino meat to people, y/y? (That man is crazy.) Well, mine got in yesterday! :D I was so sure that I had screwed something up. Or well, since he/his PA added something like five stamps I had probably gotten the stamps wrong, but whatever, it arrived in spite of the suckiness of the Italian postal service, which makes me very happy indeed. Anyone on my fl on team five as well? *looks around*

3. Aaaand *drum roll* after a year because clearly my uncle screwed up with gifting me dvds, I'm done with Six Feet Under S4! I started S5 as well but before the whole thing becomes a blur in my mind I'll just write down my S4 impressions and S5 will come in a couple of days. Seriously it's taken me such a ridiculous time to finish this..

Okay so this season was basically a mindfuck. Not in the Lost sense, but seriously I was mostly like 'WHAT? O_________O' for half of it. But I'd say let's go with a list.

- David is still my favorite. Also 4x05 (or, the episode with the crazy guy pointing a guy in his mouth) is officially the most upsetting hour of television I ever saw in my whole life if you don't count Boone dying. Just. I felt physically sick after watching that episode. X___X *hugs David* also i appreciated that he remained traumatized until the end of the season. I like it when traumatizing stuff stays traumatizing and people don't forget about it after two episodes.

- David/Keith is still mostly awesome. I just - I love how far they came from S1 to now. <333 and I like that it isn't still perfect but they still work because they're basically perfect for each other, aw.

- Ruth/George is weird. I just - I like it but I want to smack the both of them because they take everything from the wrong angle.

- Ruth and Bettina going to Mexico was the most amazing thing ever though. XD also Bettina is still awesomeness incarnated.

- I MISS ARTHUR. WHY DID HE HAVE TO GO, HE CRACKED ME UP. *sigh* *glares at Ruth*

- Rico was such an ass this season, ugh. I still was forgiving him for his homophobic remarks and then he goes and has that whole story with the stripper and then he's like 'it's your fault if I slept with her?' at Vanessa? Seriously? In the end he did redeem himself slightly but I spent half of the season wanting to smack him.

- Nate I liked you this round. I think he had a pretty good arc and also Peter Krause you have some acting chops. The ending of the premiere was making me feel his grief, whut.

- Nate/Brenda still remains the best het ship out of the bunch. Even though I had liked the whole thing between Brenda and Joe before it, well, ended like that. Brenda's mom is still the most irritating person to ever grace a tv screen though. X_X

- I did like Claire's arc too even though it's not the one I'm most interested in. I liked that thing with Edie though, as bad as it ended. Though ugh if next season she behaves like in the S4 finale all the time we're gonna have problems...

- So wait Lisa was killed by her brother-in-law or at least he was there when she died? WHAT WAS THAT? I swear I spent that entire part with my jaw touching the ground, I wasn't expecting that to happen. (Though the little girl with the crush on David was totally the only redeeming member of Lisa's family if you ask me..)

- Best funeral of the round: the one of the nerd guy who wanted to be buried with his comic book. Mostly because I could sort of get it. *cough* but that whole bit with George stopping one of his two friends who wanted to steal the thing and then bumping fists with Nate was kind of seriously hilarious. Second-best: the guy who drove himself to the funeral home, because it was totally out of the norm and then the funeral itself seemed to be as happy as a funeral gets and idk but it was a pretty good one (and it was a damn good episode). While I seriously felt bad for the guy who got stuck in the elevator (ewww!) and the poor guy who lost all of his family in the same accident ;___;

- The last scene of the season finale was perfection. It was not even that many lines but they packed a punch. And the shooting itself was gorgeous. I realized where it was going as soon as mr Fisher senior showed up but he was the most suited one to deliver that speech to David (who probably needed it). Then again the show itself works because they nail the way to talk about death and/or life and/or pain without it getting too much or too little or out of line and just, it was such a perfect way to close that season.

Now I'm on to S5. Oh dear I'm not sure I want it to end but then again I've been watching this show since my first year of university, it's high time I actually finish it...

4. Quick movie recs post: The King's Speech is an excellent movie and deserves all the awards it gets (and the acting is amazing. Everyone's acting actually. I'm so glad I caught it not dubbed..). I sadly haven't managed to watch any other Oscar nominated movie since none of the others is out here yet. *siiigh* on the other hand, I don't know what were the judges at the Rome Film Festival on when all of them at once decided that Kill Me Please deserved to win, but it was one of the most confusing movies I've ever seen. And not because it was too complex, but because you really don't get what the heck is the point of it. Or at least I haven't. I'm still asking myself what the heck was the point of the whole thing.

5. I don't have pictures of the Adler's Appetite concert I attended with _izu_ and marlonob last week (though I will have them, as soon as they're sent over to me), but, for GNR savvy people, I glomped Steven Adler. I might have picture proof of at least hugging him (the glomping wasn't recorded, thankfully). It made me a very happy person.

6. Uhm, sadly this is all for now. And uhm, this was indeed so random.

Six Feet Under? OMG, I LOVED that show. Loved David to bits! And you're making me want to watch it again! (Please do post when you've completed S5 -- I'd love to hear your take on the final episode.)

Speaking of "David"/Michael C. Hall, have you seen any of Dexter yet?

Finally . . . YAY, RHINO PIECES!! :)

It's so good! Lol I've been watching on and off for years because I basically got dvds when my uncle gifted them to me for my birthday/christmas, but since one is in August and one in December it took me ages to get to the end. David is so amazing! As Michael C. Hall. <3 I haven't seen Dexter yet but I wanted to be done with SFU first. Not for anything but I'm half-sure that if I had started Dexter before finishing the other I'd have had a characterization shock. XD

RHINO PIECES FTW! :DDD

Hang on, Misha Collins is mailing people puzzle pieces? What?

(But also: you got mail from Misha Collins! *squees*)

I want to see The King's Speech something fierce. It looks amazing and I adore Colin Firth.
the female ghost of tom joad: misha is my favoritejanie_tangerine on February 9th, 2011 10:53 pm (UTC)
Lol some three months ago there was that TV Guide contest to get SPN on the cover of said magazine and he had linked the poll on his twitter saying that whoever voted for that would have received in their mail from him a piece of rhino meat (a Warner PA was supposed to provide the rhino). So anyway SPN won the tv guide (and he wasn't even on it!) and so he was like 'send me a package with your address at my PO Box and I'll get you a piece of rhino'. Except that instead of real meat he sent pieces of six different puzzles whose picture is a rhino, then he wrote an e-mail behind each puzzle and we were all supposed to go on the internet and organize ourselves to realize what the heck was written behind the puzzle. Then the first 200 people to contact that e-mail (and I did contact it) pass to the next round of this incredibly complicated thing. I swear I love that guy's head. AND I GOT MAIL FROM HIM! :DDD

That movie is AMAZING indeed. And if you like Colin Firth you will totes love it. ;)

Ooooh DO IT! It's awesome. I love that show so hard. And it deals with Serious Matters in a way I've rarely seen on tv.

It's SUCH a good movie, isn't it? I love them all so much. And my HBC girlcrush just got worse. ;)

... lol and this is the best matching icon I have for yours. XD

Six Feet Under has been on my to-watch list for like a year. Maybe after I finish watching Friday Night Lights.

YES, YES, AND MORE YES.

I LOVE that show so hard. Second only to Deadwood, but yeah. ;) And ha lol I tend to react very loudly. Twitter-wise. XD

I knew he sent off rhino puzzle pieces (and YAY! you got one! that's awesome! lol!) but i had no idea there was MORE. how so fantastic, Misha?
the female ghost of tom joad: misha = awesomejanie_tangerine on February 10th, 2011 11:32 pm (UTC)
Heck yes there was! :D I have no freaking idea of what's he up to but he promises amazing prizes to whoever gets to the end of it. Let's see if the fact that I'm usually good at this kinda stuff pays off.. but yeah. MISHA HOW SO AMAZING. Idek I love him so hard.

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes, sweetie. <3 As for a prompt: how about something totally random? Like, Lost/SPN, Shannon at Camp Chitaqua. Or Shannon and Boone. Gen, Shannon/Dean, Shannon/Cas, Shannon/Dean/Cas, Shannon/Boone, Shannon/Boone/Dean, whatever works for you. If that's too weird, just ignore me; you don't have to write me anything—I don't want you to have any stress because of me.

I still haven't watched S4 and S5 of SFU (although I saw a few scenes. I like spoiling myself). I don't want it to end.
the female ghost of tom joad: six feet underjanie_tangerine on February 10th, 2011 07:09 pm (UTC)
Wait Shannon/Boone/Dean/f!Cas or variations thereof or Shannon in 5x04 - my head just had a moment of OMG AWESOME. Okay, let's see if my planned huge fic-writing session for tomorrow happens the way I want because I actually went like GENIUS. Let's see. ;) And ha, I wish I was fic-stressed, really. Atm I'm just like 'why am I stalling with writing when I actually have time'... ;)

Yeah I kind of don't want either but it's been... three years since I started it. I'm feeling like I really need to finish it. BUT IT'S SO GOOD I WISH IT HAD GONE ON FOREVER ;__;
missy_useless: shannonmissy_useless on February 10th, 2011 07:24 pm (UTC)
Any variation of Shannon/Boone/f!Dean/f!Cas or Shannon/Boone/Dean/f!Cas or Shannon in 5x04 gen fic would be perfect. (The only thing I'm not into is f!Dean/Dean or a moresome including f!Dean/Dean.) I'm glad you approve. ;) I have a billion crossover pairings and they all work fine in my head but then I'm like 'everyone else is gonna think I'm crazy' so I shut up about it, but I figured if there was one person on the planet I could ask for that, it'd be you. ;) But again: please, no stress. Take your time; there's no hurry. ♥

I still have two whole seasons to look forward to and I'm already mourning that show. ;_________;
the female ghost of tom joad: lost shannonjanie_tangerine on February 10th, 2011 10:46 pm (UTC)
Naaah don't worry, I hate f!Dean fiercely. (He's not even Dean in my head. I refuse to process it.) Mostly because I'm very wary of people who treat bad my favorites and f!Cas makes me go ;_______________; and I hate f!Dean for it. ;) ;) and ha lol crazy crossover pairings? Totes my thing, don't worry. Especially if they include Boone and/or Shan in the middle of Dean and/or Cas. ;) ;)

Yeah I'm into S5 rn and I DON'T WANT IT TO END ;_______________;
missy_useless: future!deanmissy_useless on February 10th, 2011 11:07 pm (UTC)
Awww, poor f!Dean; I really love him. ;)

Of all the Lost people I miss Shannon and Boone the most. Not counting Jack and Juliet—I might miss them even more. But Shaaaaaaaaan! Boone! I love these kids so much. Crying till the end of time.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean/cas i like past you <3janie_tangerine on February 10th, 2011 11:15 pm (UTC)
Lol I'm probably unfair to him, poor guy, but he's just so... not the Dean I <3 that I can't just like him. Also I tend to dislike whoever hurts my favorites as a general rule lol. Poor first-half-of-S1 Shannon knows something about it (though then we made peace about that..) ;) [there's a reason I do p!Dean/f!Cas like woah. XD]

ME TOO OMG. Okay maybe I miss Charlie more than Shannon but just slightly. WORD ABOUT HER AND BOONE SO MUCH ;______;

A film I have actually seen! You really felt for the guy - er, the King. Not having a voice, almost not having one, that's difficult. You could easily sympathise with him, understand his frustration.
the female ghost of tom joad: marlon brando *_*janie_tangerine on February 11th, 2011 11:44 am (UTC)
It was such a good movie! :D I loved it to pieces. And yeah you really did feel for him, poor guy. Regardless of his social status it really made it easy to sympathize with him, which I guess isn't exactly an easy thing to do.

"I like it when traumatizing stuff stays traumatizing and people don't forget about it after two episodes."

IKR? Lord knows I love TV for its escapism, but at the same time, shows that deal with things in a real, non-sensationalized manner are the ones that I love the most. ♥

DAVID. ;____; And word to what you said about David/Keith. I love that they're the most consistently stable couple on that show. Peter Krause is amazing. The first episode of S4 was heart wrenching because of him. I liked Brenda/Joe as well. I love Nate/Brenda, but they were cute and I feel bad he ended up getting the shaft. =(

THE KING'S SPEECH. ♥
the female ghost of tom joad: six feet underjanie_tangerine on February 12th, 2011 05:35 pm (UTC)
EXACTLY. I mean if I'm watching a show where traumatizing shit happens I want it to have repercussions, not to magically go away. And they just knocked it out of the park with that storyline. Except that they shocked me for life in the process. xD

DAVID I KNOW ;___________; I LOVE HIM. <3333 and yeah they just never stray away too much from each other in spite of the fact that they don't have the perfect relationship which makes me go AWWWW even more so. (And I'm halfway through S5 now and OMG I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.)

Peter Krause is freaking good, wow. That episode was Emmy-nomination deserving srsly. Brenda/Joe was cute indeed! He got axed a little to harshly, I'll agree with you on that. Except that my 'OMG NATE/BRENDA' otp-wired head can't be that sad about it. ;)

IT'S SUCH A GOOD MOVIE. ♥
