Two memes, a link and a manifesto

1. Has everyone seen this? (Courtesy kataclysmic) It's Josh and Foxy and several other actors talking about their favorite inventions. ;-) I think it must be from the same interviews as the "favorite body part" but I'd never seen these before.


2. TV fandom meme: (Gakked from foxxcub). From each of your fandoms, choose your favorite character, ship & episode. One only!

(Going with current shows only.)
- Lost
Favorite Character: Sawyer
Favorite Ship: Jack/Sawyer
Favorite Episode: Confidence Man/Exodus, Part 1 (I can't choose!)

- 24
Favorite Character: Tony Almeida
Favorite Ship: Tony/Michelle
Favorite Episode: I suck at keeping track of which eps are which. But definitely Day 3, with Michelle in the infected hotel and people panicking and then dropping like flies and her not knowing whether she's infected too. DAMN good TV. But also the ep (same season) where Jack is ordered to kill his boss, Ryan Chappelle? GAH! Outside of Oz, I don't think I've seen a more intense hour of TV ever.

- Supernatural
Favorite Character: Dean Winchester
Favorite Ship: None
Favorite Episode: Faith

- Grey's Anatomy
Favorite Character: Christina Yang
Favorite Ship: Yang/Burke
Favorite Episode: Hmmm. The Super Bowl one? This is not a show I do much more with than watch!

- Desperate Housewives
Favorite Character: Andrew Van de Kamp (Tom Scavo, close second)
Favorite Ship: Andrew/Justin
Favorite Episode: I Know Things Now (the Andrew/Peter episode!)

3. And my Lost manifesto:

No one shall bash Sawyer or Jack (or Josh or Foxy) in my LJ. Very frowned upon. Also know that I really enjoyed and miss Shannon. I would have loved to see how her character changed on the island. Alas!

Anyone not know how I feel about Ana? OK then, LOL. It's so bad, that, for the most part, I just have to stop reading most fics the second she crops up. (Although I have written her into a few, even somewhat fairly!) It's like my knee-jerk reaction to George Bush if he's on the radio or TV. I have to rush to turn it off RIGHT THIS SECOND!! So I really, really appreciate fic warnings. And yes, I am NEVER watching "Two for the Road."

Michael: He went from being boring to being annoying to needing to be torn apart limb from limb. I have zero sympathy for that asshole. Just NONE. Claire is possibly the blandest, most boring TV character of all time. Dullsville. Libby was pointless. Rose really, really rubs me the wrong way. Other than that, everyone is great. ;) Except Charlie has the very worst backstories ever (after Michael) and can they PLEASE do something about that? I do have issues with the consistency of Kate's character. (What consistency? LOL) And Sun so often being just a wife and/or potential mother. But I do like both characters at core and am willing to chalk up most o the glitches to bad writing.

With very rare exceptions, I won't read fic where the following people are being sexed up: Ana, Charlie, Claire, Locke, Henry, Jin (nothing against him, I just don't find him very sexy!) I'm also not big on most Jack/Kate. It's not just MPREG that squicks me out, but any pregnancy storylines. Not my bag at all. Same with incest. (Faux incest, though, is another matter.)

4. Music meme, tagged by neon_lights_x

List seven songs that you enjoy at the moment. Put these instructions in your LiveJournal with the seven songs and then tag another seven people to know what they're listening to.

(Many are courtesty of audiography's just-ended '80s week. Yay!)
1. Atlantic - Keane
2. Up the Down Escalator - The Chameleons
3. Runaways - XTC
4. April Skies - Jesus & Mary Chain
5. Safe From Harm - Massive Attack
6. Supermassive Black Hole - Muse
7. The Whole of the Moon - The Waterboys

I think everyone on my flist has probably already done this, so if you haven't, you're it!

I squealed when Josh's clip came right after somebody said, "vibrator." Does that make me a perv? Or just hopelessly immature? ;)

And yes, THAT was what I left out of my Lost Manifesto. Pregnancy fics of any kind squick me bad. I need to add an addendum to mine, I guess.

LOL! Add that to the distilled liquor and we're good! ;)

Ha! And you've given birth! I mean no offense to any moms out there but that is something I have never been at all interested in experiencing. Just not wired that way!

Is there supposed to be a link? :/ I can't get to it.

It's like my knee-jerk reaction to George Bush if he's on the radio or TV.

I do that with Bill O'Reilly all the time. I can't even see him without my blood boiling, I hate him so damn much. So I totally get that. And every time I see Bush on TV, it's on the Daily Show and he's being made fun of, otherwise I would definatly change the channel immediatly.

Oops, my HTML was bad. Here's the link: http://youtube.com/watch?v=GULNUCI-TDU

I never watch FOX news so it's pretty easy to avoid Bill O'Reilly. But I do watch local news and CNN and it's all good until that smirking idiot comes on and then I have to tune out.

I was flipping around at two in the morning yesterday and Access Hollywood (don't judge me, please ;D) was doing a middle-of-the-night special thing on Hollywood feauds, and one of them was when Bill O'Reilly was fighting with George Cloony for some dumbass reason and I changed the channel immediatly. I don't watch FOX news either, so yes he's easy to avoid. But when he manages to sneak in....grrr. I want to rip his head off.

Two in the morning? *pets*

I'm often up then too, but different time zone... right? And hey, I've been known to watch some weird crap at odd hours!

I'm over in Arizona. :) I've always kept odd hours. I'm not a morning person, by any streach of the imagination. Which worked out pretty badly for me, because I had to get up at 6:00 every morning for four years to go to school. I hope my college schedual is nicer to me. I always end up feeling really productive at night, which is when I do a lot of my writing and iconing. But it sure makes for some crappy TV (I think I've seen the same magic bullet infomercial about ten times). ;)

Magic bullet? LOL. Do you not have cable? *pets*

I ended up watching an old movie with Val Kilmer, "Thunder Heart" at 2:30 am last night. I'd seen it before and I liked it. I'd also rewatched "Shaun of the Dead" earlier ... it's better to have cable when you can't (or won't) go to sleep.

And yes, college should treat you better. Just don't schedule any morning classes!

Oh I have cable (thank god). But they put that damn thing on every network at a certain point. At least it seems that way. At a certain time of night the food network changes over to infomercials and that one always seems to be on when I flip buy. Plus it's just pretty much something I can put on and ignore while I write or something.

Am I the only person who thinks that the tampon is the best invention ever?

The way Josh stretched out one (okay two) words...god. Cute and sexy and hot.

I like that we disagree, is that odd? It makes me see things in a different way, not just be so blindly accepting of the character's actions. And we have the same three favorites at the top anyways ;)

Jun. 20th, 2006 04:42 am (UTC)
I adore that man.

And hee, this manifesto thing is interesting! I'm not always loving Jack's decisions, I should say, but I just love the big dope. He tries so hard! And yes, as long as we agree on the important stuff, LOL.

Heee, thanks for that link *thinks a lot about Josh and distilled alcohol now*
And yay, another Tony/Michelle shipper (I obviously have the wrong kind of friends in real life, most of them like Kim...I know, they actually LIKE her*sigh*)
halfdutch
Jun. 20th, 2006 11:08 pm (UTC)
;-) Josh can make anything sound sexy!

And yes, I haven't actually read much 24 fic but I loved Tony & Michelle so much on the show! And Kim -- argh! At least she was barely in this last season. But she is still alive, alas! Why couldn't they kill HER?

Hee, glad you enjoyed it. I have not seen the favourite body part one, and none of the Losties were featured in the virginity one. A new one started airing on tv recently, talking about nicknames their partners give them. I'm waiting for that to surface on youtube.
halfdutch
Jun. 20th, 2006 11:10 pm (UTC)
OMG, you HAVE to see the favorite body part one! Foxy's is PRICELESS!

There are probably links up at lost-media.com or maybe txvoodoo has it up.

Virginity, eh? That would have been a good one! Damn, LOL.

(Have just returned from Wales - hence the late reply!)

Thanks for the links. There's just been an influx of new ones (I only watch channel 4 - I'm not a telly addict!), featuring favourite cars, and how to win their hearts (Josh - "Honesty"; Foxy - "Already taken.").

Knowing insignificant details about our fave celebs is important, damnit.

I love that you are one, listening to Keane, two, you listed Supernatural as a fandom!! three, the YouTube..distilled liquor and the guitar..TWO GREAT CHOICES, and Charlie and Michael do have the worst backstories, Libby was a filler and really that character went no where and Claire, I swear that accent is like nails down a chalkboard for me.

halfdutch
Jun. 20th, 2006 11:12 pm (UTC)
Yes, I love me some Keane! The new album is great although I am still getting to know it.

And awww, that's Emile's real accent isn't it? LOL. I liked her first backstory but since then she's pretty damn useless. They really have no idea what to do with the women on the show. :-/
