tv and birthdays and damn my subject titles are never smart  
1. Happy birthday to thespiansparkle and carmexgirl! :DDD i hope that you're both having awesome days and that the next year is nothing short of awesome. (And that possibly brings Misha Collins back on our screens, that damned new Dark Tower book and everything you shall wish for.) And if any of you has prompts I'll see what I can do. :)

2. Meeeh apart from episode reviews I haven't posted anything lately. Reason: I was supposed to have an exam on the 19th, then it was moved to the 24th, THEN it was moved to the 3rd (for me) and I've been angsting over it until now. And will angst over it until Thursday. Doesn't help that I don't care about any of it but hopefully the second time will go through...

3. Meanwhile I've been at least keeping up with shows.

Shortly: Ringer keeps on being ridiculous and at some point I'll just fast forward to the scenes with Nestor Carbonell and watch just him. Mostly because the characters seem to be in a race for who is the most dumb. Bridget is just.. out of this world STUPID. WHY would you touch a thing covered in blood WITH BARE HANDS when you had gloves? WHY? WHY? And srsly, Agent Eyelashes, you have Bridget's prints and YOU DON'T SUSPECT THAT MAYBE SHE'S THE ONE POSING AS HER SISTER? Let's not get into how idiotic the murder sort of plot is. Or how clearly Rich Girl goes to Public School and the first thing that happens is that she gets bullied and the Poor Kids gang up against her. I know that public school in the US isn't exactly this shiny thing, but for once they couldn't break the stereotype, noo. I guess I could care less about self-absorbed rich people. Which is apparently what 90% of this show is about. *facepalm* H50 got better even if it's still not as shiny as last season and I still don't get if I want Lori gone or not. Then again just show me AOL without a shirt and we can talk. Sirens got canceled so there goes the only new show that I really liked this season. Meeeh.

3b. A couple longer things about Boardwalk Empire: sooooo, this show has a way of picking things up around episode five? Because last year it was more or less the same. But GEEZ this one was... woah. First: Richard totally stole the show, in there and in 2x04. Omg. I was holding my breath throughout all of his scenes. And I think I'm at the point where what I like about Jimmy I like because Richard likes him, but apart from that... when they went scalping the old guy with my favorite Beethoven symphony in the background I was like -> O_______________O. Just, woah. Poetic justice literally, huh? (Anyway, am I the only person who's here hoping that Richard/Jimmy/Angela becomes canon? I mean, whenever I watch HBO shows and I think 'geez they're pushing it' IT USUALLY HAPPENS, so.) let's not dwell on Richard reminding me of Castiel and Jimmy/Richard being basically Dean/Castiel at its most fucked up shall we, though come on. When Richard asked Jimmy if he'd fight for him, it was code for do you love me. Or something.. Also ouch, Eli's storyline this season is making me feel things. Not that he ever was my favorite but when he broke down in front of Nucky AND then lashed out at the other guy? *brr* This show likes to punch me in the gut. Re last episode: the ending with the kid all in white and stuff was creepy. Just creepy. And the whole thing re the confession.. uugh, that kid's gonna need so much therapy. Do people seriously believe that kids can sin at SEVEN? Meeh. I keep on disliking Van Alden and Lucy separately but whenever they're in the same scene I actually enjoy the hell out of it. Also now that Van Alden's wife found him out I'll like to see what happens.. though seriously, he had it coming. Jimmy's mom is legitimately starting to scare me. I don't know how I feel about the new people including the guy Margaret is apparently lusting for. But it doesn't change that ten minutes of that show are better than everything discussed in point three thrown together...

4. So, Misha Collins is apparently wanting to get into the world records guinness by making us go insane and opened a website for it. Out of all the things you were supposed to do until now I only managed to get someone to take a picture of yours truly while holding up a sign saying gishwishes takes Rome. You don't want to know how I explained the entire thing to the very nice woman taking the pic for me. If anyone has missed the collage on the site..



You can see yours truly's face for a split half of a second at 0.44. I'm the one with the trenchcoat in front of the Pantheon - you can't really read the sign but you COULD, if looked at the picture in the right size. XD

5. Throwing it here: anyone would be willing to beta for me 6000 words of Castiel & Amelia Novak fic for Novakfest? Posting starts on the 8th but I highly doubt I'll be posting early, so no hurries.

6. Aaand... happy Halloween to whoever seriously does it! Between it not being a huge thing here and the fact that I have to study physics stuff I absolutely don't give a damn about I'm doing.. absolutely anything, but here, have the Best Thing Ever For This Holiday that I know.



Don't tell me that it isn't awesome. ;)

7. And I think it shall be it for now. At some point I'll get back into the swing of things. Possibly after having passed this thing. The day I thought that the master's degree meant more laid back schedule I was so very wrong.

I know that public school in the US isn't exactly this shiny thing
The really ridiculous part of it is that whatever school this is would still be a really rich public school. She lives on Fifth Avenue in the 70s or so. That's sort of how it works out here, where rich neighborhoods have good schools, and poor neighborhoods have shitty schools. She would not be the only rich girl in the class. The girl who was bullying her has parents who can afford to pay the rent/mortgage to live in the same neighborhood as Juliet.

I was just as outraged as you are about Bridget's stupidity leaving the fingerprints, but lots of people have since told me that I misunderstood. Apparently, you were supposed to understand that Bridget did it on purpose, that she's trying to throw her actual identity under the bus in order to protect her new life as Siobhan. It's a big deal because she's framing "Bridget", which is supposed to signify that she has no interest in going back to being that person?

.. I had totally missed that point but it just makes it doubly stupid. Why, WHY do they need to stereotype things like that? Not that it makes Juliet sympathetic or anything - I totally don't find her sympathetic, lol, but seriously, DON'T. But yeah, let's send the message that public schools are The Evil...

O___O I don't... find it any less dumb than her leaving the fingerprints without realizing it. Especially since she had seemed half-shocked when Eyelashes told her about Bridget's prints. And she didn't look especially cunning. And even if she throws the Bridget identity away.. HOW IS SHE SUPPOSED TO FAKE BEING PREGNANT? Every way you look at it, it's a big bag of stupid. And the people around her who still didn't add two and two are even more stupid...

I will beta a story for you, I have lots of spare time anyway :)

Plus have you seen Ten Inch Hero? If so, there should totally be a Castiel/Priestly fic about it... just throwing that idea out there!
The Cleaverage: deankel_reiley on November 1st, 2011 06:47 am (UTC)
plus Jensen looks way hot in that movie
the female ghost of tom joad: misha = awesomejanie_tangerine on November 1st, 2011 08:46 am (UTC)
Awesome! :D I still need to edit it/find it a title/etc so I'll probably send it in on the 3rd or 4th. Could you PM me your e-mail? Or send me one, whatever XD I'm janietangerine at gmail dot com :)

I did see it! And mmmh... you know I think someone might have written it..? Or not. Idk I've seen around fic with Priestly/a bunch of other people but I have no idea if Castiel was in there. I should check around because it would be good..
Emily: SPN - Dean - b&wbja727 on November 1st, 2011 09:33 am (UTC)
That's fine. I will send you my e-mail address right now.

I would like to read that kind of story, that's for sure :)

I'm still one episode behind on Boardwalk Empire, but I loved last week's outing for the Richard moments, the Richard/Jimmy/Angela tension and for Eli's breakdown. Wow was it gory!

Happy Halloween!
the female ghost of tom joad: boardwalk empirejanie_tangerine on November 1st, 2011 09:32 am (UTC)
Last week was just so awesome! This week's wasn't as intense but it had its moment. And yeah, they're going gory on us a whole damn lot..

Same to you! ;) (late, but still.)

Meh I don't hate her THAT much but I don't see her point either... :/

Switchblade Sisterswitchbladesis on November 1st, 2011 02:13 am (UTC)
Wait, wait, I thought the first day of posting was going to be November 8th. That's what I've been telling people, at least.

That reminds me, I've got a general email to send you about scheduling...
the female ghost of tom joad: EPIC FAILjanie_tangerine on November 1st, 2011 08:19 am (UTC)
... sorry, I'm an idiot. 5th ws the one for the schedule, 8th was for posting. I wrote this at midnight after studying for six hours straight so I got it messed up. XD

And send it over! I'll correct that statement up there meanwhile XD
Fangirlage like WHOA.: Misha // JIB Laundryhopelessfangirl on November 1st, 2011 02:39 am (UTC)
Yay, I spotted you in the video! =D

Oh, Ringer. *shakes head*
the female ghost of tom joad: pink!!!janie_tangerine on November 1st, 2011 09:43 am (UTC)
Lol I almost got an headache trying to stop the frame to see if I wasn't mistaken. XDD ;)

I know...? The more it goes on the worse it gets.. and I'm despairing of it being able to pull a vampire porn on us :/
a geek in such the wrong way: vampire diaries-damonhaldoor on November 1st, 2011 04:53 am (UTC)
Woo, go you with the pic, even if it is only a split second! Good luck for the studying; may it pass quickly!
the female ghost of tom joad: ian somerhalder valentinejanie_tangerine on November 1st, 2011 09:42 am (UTC)
At least, 75% of all the others got the same amount of time, so I won't take it personally. ;) and thanks! I just need to be done with it..
goldenusagigoldenusagi on November 1st, 2011 05:07 am (UTC)
I'm not sure why I keep watching Ringer, TBH. It's like a sickness or something.
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on November 1st, 2011 09:41 am (UTC)
I think it's a train wreck thing. You know it's horrible but you can't take your eyes off it...
goldenusagigoldenusagi on November 1st, 2011 09:44 am (UTC)
I keep meaning to make a post about, but then I don't because half my flist is BtVS, and a lot are watching just for SMG.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost richardjanie_tangerine on November 1st, 2011 09:47 am (UTC)
Considering that I'm watching for Agent Eyelashes I can't say anything XD and SMG is good, but.. the material is just so bad that I can't suspend disbelief anymore ://
goldenusagigoldenusagi on November 1st, 2011 09:48 am (UTC)
Agent Eyelashes annoys me to no end, lol. I just hate the relentless detective character.

Bridget's fake husband, OTOH... Mmmmm...
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural + nick cave = otpjanie_tangerine on November 1st, 2011 10:11 am (UTC)
To be fair I don't even like the character. The actor, though, makes me tingle since he was in Lost, so.. XD
The Cleaverage: panic in detroitkel_reiley on November 1st, 2011 06:44 am (UTC)
I put in my email for his crazy site, but sadly did not send in a pic of me holding a sign that reads "gishwishes takes Detroit" so basically I fail at being a fan, or something ;)

Still intrigued by the whole thing... just too lazy to participate!
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on November 1st, 2011 09:40 am (UTC)
Lol that was said on like, the atwitter account of that Miss JeanLouis person. I think it's Misha playing another person, but. XD and ff you're not failing, it's him making it SO OVERTLY COMPLICATED. ;)
The Cleaveragekel_reiley on November 1st, 2011 09:47 am (UTC)
i just want to know what the big mystery is!
