stuff + memes  
1. Okay, so, from tomorrow to the day after I'm on a leave of absence because I'm taking a flash trip with _izu_ and marlonob to see Duff McKagan + Loaded in concert somewhere near Modena, and I just hope no one posts everything important I might miss. ;)

2. That said, I probably will have another ficlet for the darned alphabet meme later. I can finish that, can I?

3. Memes galore because today I'll need to take breaks from the awesomeness that it's computers in relation to philosophical texts. What joy.

3a. This from invisiblelove:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

LOL. Well, this one is mostly because I needed a funny SPN icon and as soon as I saw it I had to grab it. It's a quote from Buffy (which I didn't watch) but come on, it's SO PERFECT for Castiel. I still giggle anytime I look at it, and the actual composition is lovely.

Well, that speaks for itself. I always have a Des + blue shirt icon in rotation, and that one had also the personal jesus line which is just perfect for him, I had to grab it. *loves*

by marylou_gr

This has more than one reason. First, IT'S GORGEOUS. Look at it. Just look at it. The composition and the coloring is pure genius and I just love it. THEN, look at the meaning. I mean, it's one of my favorite scenes in Lost ever and I just don't like Locke well enough anymore to have my Locke icon without Boone in and that part was just... guh. Also, I love that episode. And also, he needs to clean his own mess.

by mediocrechick

This... well, it's fairly uncomplicated. I need a Vincent icon and I needed a porn icon too, so I found it and took it because it fit perfectly. ;)

by hobbitholes

Aw, I love this one so much. It's my second Lost OTP and while it's not the main one I use for the pairing it's just... AWWWW. The stick figures are SO CUTE and they're HAND HOLDING and they're freighty love!! *melts*

by lasamy

I won't ever, ever change this one. Apart from it being PERFECT, it's my OTP, my favorite scene in the history of Lost ever, the defining turning point of my fandom life and come on, the composition and coloring and text are gorgeous and so well put. I ♥ it. Seriously.

3b. This from... like, everyone.

Name a fandom, and I'll give you the scoop on at least three of my unpopular opinions related to that fandom. -> usually, my scoops imply that I like slash way more than any canon pairings, but still.

3c. This from elliotsmelliot:

Choose one of the TV shows, movies or books you know I’m familiar with, and I’ll tell you which character I’d pick for the following:

Best & Worst Roommate:
Best & Worst Neighbour:
Best & Worst Houseguest:
Who would I get to help me garden?
Who would I get to help me decorate?
Who would I get to help me with any repairs/renovations?
Who would I get to help me move?
Who would I trust to sell me the property?
Who would I invite over for my first dinner?

4. Okay, I'm off to buy groceries and then studying and then editing stuff. -nod-
feeling: confusedconfused
on rotation: the wall - pink floyd

Word about the Locke/Boone and Locke in general. Blah. What a waste. *sigh*

And of course!

Unpopular opinions:

1) Uh. So, everyone is usually like, The Long Con is the best Sawyer episode in the history of EVER and I'm like, NO, The Long Con is, except for the flashbacks and Cassidy, completely disappointing. The island stuff made no sense, it just made me irritated and while I loved the Cassidy part the rest was completely forgettable IMHO. Best Sawyer episode = Outlaws. -nod-

2) I like Jack's daddy issues. I seriously am invested in Jack's daddy issues. Not for anything All The Best Cowboys etc. would be my favorite episode if Deus Ex Machina wasn't the best Boone characterization that will ever be. And I'm genuinely interested even if I hate Christian's guts, lol. Maybe I should just say that the fact that I can't dislike Jack period is probably an unpopular opinion in itself, but I can't help myself. And since we're talking Jack, I can't see the deal with his crying.

3) I don't think that Ben is that great of a character. I enjoyed Henry Gale a fucking LOT, but I was sick of Ben by half of S3. I don't see the appeal, as a villain he doesn't interest me in the slightest, any time they want me to feel sorry for him I just don't and while I can enjoy the snark he provides in small doses, I just don't give a damn about him. And I don't like the fact that in S4 Lost became practically the Ben show, because I sincerely don't care. But everywhere I go outside LJ I find a heap of people who would quit watching if he died so I guess it's unpopular. ;)

Aaaand, the Stand, of course!

Best & Worst Roommate: Best, Larry because he'd provide the music and I love the hell out of the guy, worst probably Trashcan. Apart from the lack of hygiene, he's too clingy.
Best & Worst Neighbour: Best: Glen because he'd be awesome to talk to and he'd help me out with stuff, I'm sure. Worst: Nadine. She was creepy.
Best & Worst Houseguest: Best: probably Nick. Worst: er, I can't exactly remember the names right now, but those two idiots on Flagg's side who were more or less head of the operations in Las Vegas.
Who would I get to help me garden? uh, Tom probably. I have this idea that he'd enjoy it.
Who would I get to help me decorate? Lucy, she seemed to have taste.
Who would I get to help me with any repairs/renovations? Stu, who if I remember right was pretty handy in these situations.
Who would I get to help me move? Ralph, because he had the truck in the first place.
Who would I trust to sell me the property? er, Nick. He was the only one who had actually studied something in there, if I'm not wrong.
Who would I invite over for my first dinner? Glen. I have this impression that he'd make excellent conversation.

1) Meh, IMHO Long Con > LaFleur, and EMFH is after Outlaws. Nothing beats Outlaws. *sigh* And yeah, that exchange was ridiculous even without shipping K/S, but half of the island dialogue there was ridiculous. Not to mention the whole Charlie butchering deal that started with Fire + Water which before The Little Prince and The Variable was my least favorite Lost episode ever, lol.

2) Ha, well, I didn't give a damn about Christian and I really didn't like the whole bodybag thing either *sigh* but until Jack is Jack and not false!Jack (Locke, I'm looking at you) I guess I'll be invested.

3) And he was a pathetic pawn because these writers are obsessed with getting even bigger bosses all day long. I am expected GOD next season.

That was exactly my problem. I still think it'd have been better if it kept on being a show about random people surviving on an island, but whatever. *sigh*

And ha, well, you remember the best two apart from Nick and Glen. ;) ;) (Ah, Larry, Larry, how hard I crushed on you back then..)
