first post of the year!  
1. Hiii. _izu_ and marlonob left this morning. :( It was awesome to have them here. Argh, whyy is it that your friends live like half the country away? <33 anyway, sorry for being kind of MIA but I should be more around now. If only because I have exams soon and good luck to me there.

2. Christmas cards arrived!! I've already thanked some of you on Twitter but since we're here, thanks so much to hopelessfangirl (your card was AWESOME and totally trufax <33), wandersfound (and you already knew but THAT DRABBLE IS AMAZING <33), blackonice (THANK YOU!! And the sugar-y drabble was just perfect, I loved it), darknumb (thanks again, I fell off the chair when I opened that card XDD) and eponine119 (the card was great, and I loved the holiday story <3333)!

3. I have an idiotic cold. If my nose manages to breathe I cough, if I don't cough I can't breathe through my nose. I hope the meds I took work fast because it's driving me crazy, ugh.

4. New TV arriving soon! I'm sososo excited for Chuck which will also gift me with two hours of awesomeness on the 11th after my first exam. And for SPN and the vamp porn! Also, Gina Torres is starting on the first vamp porn ep after the hiatus so YAY!!! That thing gives me satisfaction, lol. And I started checking out Deadwood because since I had a bookstore coupon for Christmas I went for the one which sells dvds and I got myself S2 too plus the entire Monty Python's Flying Circus so I figured I'd start it. I've only watched the pilot but for now I LOVE it. Westerns + lack of civilization + great acting + awesome characters = me liking a LOT. Also, yay for Jim Beaver being a regular, lol.

5. Separate TV point: while I do indeed hope that Lost S6 is nothing like S5 (in hindsight, er, S5 really didn't cut the deal for me) and even if I sort of don't want Feb. 2 to arrive because it means that it's really ending and ugh, I don't think I'm ready to give that show up yet, while I completely cut spoilers since the Comicon stuff, my interest is kind of perked up. Mainly because of this not really original Last Supper-like shot which I happen to find pretty interesting. Right, the idea is TOTALLY NOT original at all, but I really like the composition and stuff even if it kind of confirms the only theory I hoped wasn't being confirmed. *headdesk* Even though Locke/not!Locke (?) in Jesus' place does not really work for me even if it was obvious, what actually intrigues me is that after going back to check on the original painting, Sayid would be Judas (WTF?), Kate would be St. Peter (even more WTF?), Sawyer would be John (and that would/could be interesting) and Jack is totally St. Thomas (which, if Locke is Jesus, totally makes sense). It probably doesn't mean zilch, but it's cool. Also, Frank and Richard look great ♥, Jin and Sun do too, and Desmond should be where Ilana is. That's all I have to say on the topic, except for the fact that it's nice to see Jack and Sawyer next to each other again. Even though no, I also have to say that the Dharma cans are made of awesome.

6. Also, I went to see Up again at the movies (hey, the friends hadn't seen it and I had only watched it on a crappy laptop so why not? XD) and thankfully I didn't cry again. I think that the kid in front of me (whose parents were totally into the movie while she was not) would have killed me if I had started bawling like the first time. And I also re-watched A Hard Day's Night which is still so awesome I can't even say. Paul's grandfather = ♥.

7. Random: I want to go see Looking For Eric. I will probably end up going the day after tomorrow even if I should study, but the temptation is there and I'm not sure how long is the not dubbed version going to stay around. :/

8. And since I should reply to some e-mails and then go to bed and maybe watch some more Deadwood or more wisely going to sleep since I'll need to study a lot tomorrow morning, I'll leave you with Bob Dylan made in Eddie Vedder, and since it's a new decade..

I hope the holidays are ending well for everyone! <3

Desmond should be where Ilana is.

No kidding. It's like they want me to hate her more.

That. I mean, if it had been... like, Charles Widmore or even Jacob it'd have at least made some plot sense, but ILANA? Instead of DESMOND? *headdesk* The only redeeming factor is that both Frank and Richard are regulars, too.

Happy New Year, Janie. How's the weather in Italy? I'm completely snowed in here.

my interest is kind of perked up. Mainly because of this not really original Last Supper-like shot which I happen to find pretty interesting.

Dude! Lost totally ripped off Battlestar Galactica!! Boooo! They did the Last Supper promo pic for their final season teaser too. There's isn't as badly photoshopped though...


Who the hell is that woman on the far left? I'm really not bothered about S6, but will probably hunt down the Charlie scenes, cos I'm still a crazy fangirl. Him and Boone are in the first episode right?
the female ghost of tom joad: lost charliejanie_tangerine on January 5th, 2010 11:22 pm (UTC)
Happy new year to you! <3 Uh, here it's hectic. North, it's snowing in. South, they're going to the sea and having baths. Here, it's cold on one day and 18 degrees on the other one. :/

LOL, I remembered the BSG one. There's also a Sopranos one that was linked somewhere else so yeah, not original. I still like to stare at Sayid's arms though. ;)

The woman on the far left is.. er, someone who was on the second plane in S5 who seemed completely pointless and then it turns out that after five episodes with three mins of screentime each she has business with Jacob and so she's a regular. WTFFF. I'm still wondering why the hell is she even a regular. :/ And yeah, Charlie and Boone are def. in the first episode and probably in other two. I mean, I'm sure that Boone is in three eps, I can't remember about Charlie but I'm pretty sure they'll be the same ones.

Oh I hope you get better soon. I was out playing in the snow today and I've caught a chill :[

&& Up ♥ I can't wait for it to come out on DVD here.
the female ghost of tom joad: tangerinesjanie_tangerine on January 6th, 2010 10:59 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I've been coughing half the day but I hope it's over before I have to go give exams. That wouldn't be good. :/ I hope you get better too! <3

Up is lovely. Just, lovely. <3333 AND YOUR ICON IS ADORABLE <333

mte :(

I'd like to think that the character placement was intentional, but who knows with Darlton/ABC promo people. I wish Desmond was in that pic, it annoys me to an extent that Ilana is going to be a ~main character this season and Desmond won't be. (right?)

the female ghost of tom joad: beatlesjanie_tangerine on January 6th, 2010 11:01 pm (UTC)

I'd like to think that too but really, what the hell. I can't believe it wasn't intentional, not when we're talking Lost of all things. And yeah, wtf Ilana??? :((( Desmond should be there! And yeah, she's main and he's not. :((

AHDN is just ♥ all over.
Fangirlage like WHOA.: LOST // J&S - Waiting For Dawnhopelessfangirl on January 6th, 2010 02:05 am (UTC)
YAY, I'm glad the card made its way to you safely! =)

I know what you mean about February 2... I don't think the full gravity of the situation has hit me yet. I even rewatched all of the series this summer but still somehow I'm not in advance mourning for the show when I think I should be. I think once S6 starts rolling it'll hit me, but I don't know... I'm in some kind of extreme denial.
Also, all I can think about when I see that Last Supper promo pic is that I want to photoshop Locke out of there so it looks like Jack and Sawyer are checking each other out. Double blasphemous? I think possibly. =P

I NEED TO WATCH AHDN AGAIN SOOOOOON. I've been saying it since The End aired!

Eddie Vedder does great covers. I have his version of You've Got To Hide Your Love Away and it's probably my favourite Beatles cover I've heard. ♥
the female ghost of tom joad: beatlesjanie_tangerine on January 6th, 2010 11:03 pm (UTC)
Hee, it did! <333

I don't think it happened with me either. And if SPN ends this year too I couldn't bear Lost ending. :(( I'll probably be hit with you in S6 and then I'll be like WHAAT IT'S GOING!!!! I DON'T WANT IT TO! *sigh*

And ha, that was my first thought too. ;)


Eddie is awesome. I <333 his voice so much. And I love that cover!!
catoasapun: [Lost] Desmondcatoasapun on January 6th, 2010 02:50 am (UTC)
Desmond should be where Ilana is.
Seriously? WTF? UGH.

Other than that, I really love that photo, though. It's very, very intriguing.

Feb 2 will find many of us conflicted, I think - thrilled that it's back, but distraught because, well... you know. Sigh.

Anyway, Happy New Year, sweetness. I hope your holidays were lovely!
the female ghost of tom joad: lost des/penny searcherjanie_tangerine on January 6th, 2010 11:04 pm (UTC)
Yeah, UGH. What the hell. At least if it was, idk, WIDMORE, that'd have made plot sense, but ILANA? Really?

Feb. 2 will sooo leave us conflicted. I don't want it to come because then it means it's over and then I want it because I mean, it's Lost. Arrrgh.

Happy new year to you too!! <333

It makes me SO happy that TPTB remembered the analogy used earlier about Jack being Thomas. It makes so much sense!
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack **janie_tangerine on January 6th, 2010 11:22 pm (UTC)
I loved that bit! It's actually the best part of that pic, imo. ;)
a geek in such the wrong way: lost-insane laughhaldoor on January 6th, 2010 11:16 am (UTC)
Yay for Python, yay for Up, yay for Deadwood and an enormous YAY for A Hard Day's Night! I can't say how many years it's been since I last saw it, but isn't it the greatest thing? And I totally agree on Paul's grandfather! ;-)

As for Lost, we shall see.... (please check out my latest post, btw - I don't like to push, but I'm wondering if you have any time for graphics?)
the female ghost of tom joad: friendsjanie_tangerine on January 6th, 2010 11:23 pm (UTC)
Hee, yay all around! AHDN is so one of my favorite movies, I love it and its absolute and utter crack-ness, and for Paul's grandfather.

(And damn, I had stuff to send you and completely forgot =_= until the 15th I'm busy with two back-to-back exams, but I'll definitely finish everything up after, sorry again. *headdesks to herself*)
a geek in such the wrong wayhaldoor on January 7th, 2010 08:05 pm (UTC)
No worries, my dear! I'm perfectly happy to wait a little longer since my story isn't finished yet! I was just wondering how things were going! After the 15th is fine, ta! *hugs*
inthekeyofd: Stock-Heart-boundaryinthekeyofd on January 6th, 2010 08:10 pm (UTC)
I LOVED DEADWOOD..I'm still pissed that along with Rome they canceled them, they said that both were too expensive, and the dialogue, oh the dialogue, pure GOLD, it was Shakespeare..that's why Ian had such an easy time with "kings" he had already spoken like that on Deadwood.

SERIOUSLY LOVE THAT SHOW..wait until you see all the guest stars too, oh Al, oh Dan, oh Saul..all of it.

I remember when that first aired, I was like.."I didn't even know they had that word then." Great show, wish the ending was a little better but to this day I'd have loved it to continue.

Actually if you look on my user info page, I have a quote of Al's there, it's my favorite of many of his...

and Eddie..he rules all he does.
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on January 6th, 2010 11:27 pm (UTC)
Deadwood seems SO AWESOME! I absolutely loved the pilot. I can't wait to see the rest, if I manage to find some time between Hegel and feeling sleep deprived. Argh, why can't I just ditch studying? *sigh* And I seriously hope I manage to get the dvd for S3 sometime. It still isn't out for some reason. ://

I'll totally check it out!

Eddie = <333333333333333333

Do get better soon! I, OTOH, feel really funny; I'm on two drugs. Doctor's orders. Painkillers = flying high, high.

Oh, Lost. BSG did it so much better.

the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural castieljanie_tangerine on January 6th, 2010 11:25 pm (UTC)
God, I remember when I was on meds once too. I was rather sleeping than flying high but.. ;)

Yeah, I remember that promo. After checking stuff out I decided that the best picture was actually the Sopranos one, but yeah. They could have done better, even if the wing plane table is cool.

Well, first I was giggly, then really tired. Now I'm tired.

the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on January 8th, 2010 10:01 pm (UTC)
I think it was a good picture! Not original at all but in this case it was particularly apt imo. And thanks! I might be okay in a couple of days if all the meds start kicking in.. ;)
valhalla37: jack; bloodvalhalla37 on January 7th, 2010 08:30 pm (UTC)
5. Yeeeeah, cliche to say the least, but I agree -- it's still kinda neat! Anything that references the show's mythology gets me excited, I think, especially when I'm like, "Ooooooh, clues!"

What is not-so-exciting is the inclusion of Ilana or whatever. Do not care.
the female ghost of tom joad: lost jack **janie_tangerine on January 8th, 2010 10:02 pm (UTC)
Yeah, nothing that... everyone hasn't done already, but in this particular case is an apt choice considering that everyone has been finding clues in that painting for years. ;) ;)

ILANA *sigh* why is she there at all. Go away. Give me Desmond. *sigh*
