Meme me!

I'm bored. Ask me my five favorite (or least favorite) of something! Possibly involving pictures, possibly not.

I'll start with Five Things That Bug Me About LJ:

1. People who want you to join their icon comms to see their icons.
2. Any post that links you to "reply" instead of just the post itself
3. Pics that stretch my flist
4. Any icons that still say "sexyback" or have bars over someone's eyes. It's played out!
5. Super long fic headers.

1. Connected -- Stereo MC's

3. Blue Monday - New Order

I'll get back to you on the places & hot guys! :)

1. No smoking bans! YES!

3. Ample access to sushi and all kinds of veggie food
4. It's mostly pretty damn liberal
5. Friends and family all want to come visit me here

Er, I should clarify. No smoking *because* of the smoking bans! ;)

Five fandoms you love that you wish more people would.
halfdutch
Jan. 10th, 2007 09:14 pm (UTC)
Well, I can't really say I'm in any fandoms except for Lost. I skirt around the outskirts of SPN but I haven't made any friends there, really. Still, it would be cool if more people were into it. I can't really even claim to be in any of these fandoms, much, if at all, but here goes:

1. Non Wincest-oriented Supernatural
2. 24. I'd love to read some Jack/Tony or Tony/Michelle
3. Oz, since I just wrote my first foray into that fandom.
4. Bourne/Bond -- someone has promised to write this! :)
5. It would be fun to read Wild Wild West fic. The only one I tried to read was long and didn't really end up going anywhere.

I erm, can't claim to be must of an active Lost fan of late, but I know a fair few - perhaps we could work together to coerce them into watch SPN *G*
halfdutch
Jan. 10th, 2007 09:58 pm (UTC)
Aww, in some cases, it's hopeless. It's like trying to get me to watch SGA or BSG. Just not ever gonna happen!

I could get into SPN fandom more myself if I had an OTP there. I read some gen fic at first but then I kind of lost interest. I'm always happiest when someone imports Jack or Sawyer for one of the Winchesters. ;)

Ooooh, I do love me some Sawyer/Dean (not seen any involving Jack before though - got any recs?), and I have to admit, I do read Sam/Dean, though it does squick me just a little. I also have a hardcore love for Dean/Faith.

One thing I read in the SPN fandom that I don't any other, is RPS. Normally it squicks the HELL out of me, but Jared/Jensen? Is so very, very pretty!
halfdutch
Jan. 11th, 2007 04:07 am (UTC)
zelda_zee has started a fic that's going to be Dean/Jack... I hope she finishes it soon! I haven't read any Dean/Faith. Do you write it or just icon it?

I don't mind the suggestion of Wincest in funny things like Plastic Winchester Theatre, but I don't want to read any graphic Wincest fics. So not my thing. Foxshy is my main RPS pairing but I can do the occasional Jensen/Jared.

Jan. 12th, 2007 02:09 pm (UTC)
Oooh yeah, I noticed zelda_zee had mentioned something about Dean/Jack. I cannot wait to see that one.

I have started a Dean/Faith fic. I have 5,000 words sitting of my harddrive, and a helluva lot more planned out, but as of yet, nothing posted. If you are interested in reading some delicious Faith/Dean, femmenerd and regala_electra both write awesome stuff.

Agree, Agree, agree!

I'll add to that journals with header images so huge I have to page-down to see any content. Although obviously that might just be my own peeve.

How 'bout five favorite places in your city/metro area?

Oh yes, I hear you. I also find that extremely annoying. Rude, even, LOL.

I'm going to have to think about these ...

Top five phrases you never want to hear again in your life.
halfdutch
Jan. 10th, 2007 09:34 pm (UTC)
No, that didn't do it! :) It's mostly people posting their food pics to veggie_recipes actually.

Let's see:
1. "The President of the United States ... George Bush" Perhaps that's cheating, but really, that's the main one.
2. "Now more than ever." What does that mean? Stupid marketing jargon. Like "NBC Nightly News. Now more than ever." Now more inane? More pointless?
3. "Let's do this." (Or "Let's do this thing.") This is as bad a cliché as someone pumping their fists and shouting "Yes!" It seems to pop up a lot in dramas. Even in Lost - Jack says it in the pilot when they're about to go into the cockpit. Bleah.
4. "All of a sudden.." Huge bad writing red flag.
5. "What does that mean?" Annoying running gag on "Bones"

Aha, then I'm not sticking with English!

1. Schadenfreude: Taking delight in others' bad fortune. So much fun to say.
2. Manoeuvre: I like how complicated some words are in British English. Thanks to OMD for teaching me how to spell that one.
3. Fauteuil. French for "armchair." I like lots of vowels. We Americans don't use 'em enough! ;)
4. Shreklich. German for "terrible."
5. Zeitgeist.

1. People who want you to join their icon comms to see their icons.

I don't mind that actually, chances are I'm going to join if I really like the icons anyway. But I don't like just small amount of teasers - like 3 of the fandom and rest are just random things.

1. What fandoms do you think are over-rated aswell as movies?
halfdutch
Jan. 10th, 2007 10:17 pm (UTC)
I don't get it. The whole point of making icons is to share them, right? I saw someone say they'd locked their icons because someone was stealing them but that's about the only reason I can think of to have a private icon journal. *shrugs*

Hmm. I don't know which fandoms are overrated, just which ones don't appeal to me! How about overrated movies? (Not very fannish, sorry!)

1. Crash
2. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
3. 2001: A Space Odyssey. Dullest film ever.
4. The Prestige
5. American Beauty

Jan. 11th, 2007 12:07 am (UTC)
In no particular order:

1. To Kill a Mockingbird (movie)
2. The Office (but I have issues with it, LOL. It makes me so uncomfortable. I usually TiVo and then don't end up watching it.)
3. My Name is Earl. Really quite funny and sweet.
4. My Homicide: Life on the Street DVDs
5. Those two Netflix movies that have been sitting here for sooo long: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and er, some martial arts film. I forget which one anymore.
