The Stuff I Say 
12th-Dec-2016 07:45 pm - This Journal Is...
Tyler Farrar is Made of Win

I appreciate and welcome new friends, but this is now, officially, my private journal. If you want to friend it, that's fine, but if I don't know you and we don't interact, I'm probably not going to friend you back. But if you comment, just to say hi or like hey I friended you lets be friends, I totally will friend back. I'm easy like that.

If you're here for fic, all my old stuff is now unlocked and one or two stories got re-posted to my fic journal, clockiesfic. All of my new fic from here on out, except for gbunit which will be posted there if I ever get around to finishing the next story. And I won't be posting links here because cross-posting is a bitch to deal with already. So feel free to roam around my journal and my fic journal and never say anything to me ever. Seriously, it's okay.

That being said, hello all. How have you been? Sorry that I tend to voice post and spam you with pictures of my cat. Seriously. That's what you're in for if you friend me. At least let me say that she's a pretty cute cat.
7th-Nov-2010 10:31 pm - WHEDON CON!!!: Day Two
Frank Smoking Icon
I wanted to wait on posting this because I want to be like River in my icon right now, but I knew I'd forget stuff and I didn't want that to happen. So, here we go. This day was just as flaily as yesterday. Up today was Sean Maher, Morena Baccarin, Jane Espenson, Drew Greenberg, Andrew Chambliss, Camden Toy and Doug Jones.

Even more pictures than yesterdayCollapse )

And that was it! Too short! Creation needs to expand it to three days and add more guests in my opinion. Like there needs to be Enver next year for sure. They could totally do theme days and it would be awesome. I would save all my monies for that. So, until next year! Because I'm totally not doing the Supernatural LA Con next year. Like, it's getting ridic how fast that shit sells out.
6th-Nov-2010 11:04 pm - WHEDON CON!!!: Day One.
Echo icon
My official rundown of one of the most epic days to have ever epic'ed. And, also, this isn't strictly Whedon as I had to go see Joe Flanigan after that article yesterday. I was not disappointed. My pictures came out kick ass too.

Cut for the picture heavy squeeage.Collapse )

Brad Wright is at it AGAIN

Stay classy, Brad Wright, stay so very, very classy.

(Note: if you follow me on Twitter you know I've used that TWICE today for two different people. But they are seriously unclassy.)

I have many, many, MANY points on this one, but I'll start with saying I have a secret confession. I've seen SGU. I know, I've talked some serious smack about not watching it on principle. And for a whole half season or so, I didn't. Why should I? I'm the one that watched SG-1 and SGA and bought the DVD boxsets and went to the conventions and paid good money for a show I loved. I'm the one they supposedly didn't need to rely on because they could so pull in another male, younger demographic (okay, I fit into the 18-35 slot, but still). I stopped watching SGA not long after The Shrine and that was so painfully difficult but I could not stand such shoddy writing and screwing with characters I love. Why should I watch a new show when the producers had such blatant disrespect for me and the actors who put their hearts into the show. The idea didn't appeal to me when they pitched it at the convention in 2007 and it didn't when it came to life.

But then one of my close friends who does actually enjoy the show on that 'eh it's something to watch, why not?' level told me I couldn't hate it without at least watching it.

And I agreed.

I watched the first ten. I don't wanna talk about the episodes or what went down because I honestly can't remember. It was that bad to me. And it was like a cheap Battlestar Galactica. Now, if you know me, you know I've talked smack on the soap opera is space that is Battlestar Galactica (I've been informed by several people it's actually good for the first couple of seasons and will probably give it a shot at some point if only because I'll be pushed into it.), so watching a show that's a cheaper, less good version of that... why would I want to?

I cut because I'm gonna probably get long.Collapse )
3rd-Jun-2010 05:26 pm - This is a Misha Picspam
Future!Dean/Cas Icon
So, mayqueen517 had a meme where you commented and she gave you a color and then you had a to pick a person to post a picture of. Official rules are:

Leave me a comment and I'll give you a colour. Within a week, you must post a picture of one of your favourite men/women that involves this colour in some way or the other, regardless of whether it's in their clothes or a background object.

She did a picspam so I decided to do a picspam as well. And, of course, my favorite person right now (and probably for like EVER BECAUSE HE OWNS MY SOUL) is Misha Collins.

So here is a Misha Collins picspam featuring the color RED as that was the color I was given.

Cut that leads to the awesomely epic, hugely ridiculous, smoking hot, Misha Collins. You know you wanna look.Collapse )

If you wanna color, go ahead and comment. If you just wanna enjoy the Misha, that's okay too.

Johne + Rodney Icon
Alright, flist, I know there are still some SGA people with me so, HELP ME OUT!

So I'm pretty sure I didn't imagine this fic, but I do not want bring my shame to any of the fic finder communities because there was a fic search that kind of brought up a fic that sort of what I'm thinking about and might actually be the fic I'm thinking about, I'm just remembering said fic wrong.

Yeah, my brain, tricksy.

So, okay, is there a fic where Atlantis or Miko or Simpson or some random scientist number 129455 sets up a matchmaking program to try and find a match for her and then it gets broadcast throughout Atlantis (the email system or whatever?) and everyone's all oh, look, I'm apparently perfect for this person. And John and Rodney have like the highest compatibility, but Rodney doesn't look at it for a while because he thinks its ridiculous?

See, the one that was requested on sgastoryfinders had Rodney setting up the compatibility program and John was his ridiculously high match. And it's kind of like what I'm looking for so I don't wanna do a public search until someone confirms that I'm not crazy.

Help, flist. Please?

Also, hello flist. How have you all been?
Frank Smoking Icon
I'm gonna try and make this as coherent as possible. I have a feeling it's going to be long and meta-y. You've been forewarned.

Okay, here we go.Collapse )

In other news, I didn't finish in time for SPN Big Bang. Still writing all three stories and, maybe, I'll sign up for Dean/Castiel Big Bang and submit one of those stories. I've got the outline for the John Breaks the First Seal story so it's gonna be great.
5th-May-2010 01:57 am - Writer's Block: Cinqo de Mayo
Alpha Icon
Do you celebrate your country's independence? If so, how?

How about I'm celebrating it on the FUCKING 16TH OF SEPTEMBER YOU DUMBASSES!

Jesus Christ, LJ. Even Wikipedia knows this shit. Also, it's CINCO de Mayo. There is no q the last time I checked. Motherfucking Chad Ochccinco (which, I really hope he knows that does not mean 85. I can't tell if he does or not.) even knows that shit.

No, but seriously, I don't celebrate Mexican independence day. Not really anyway. I go eat food with my grandma, but that's more because it's her birthday than because it's Mexican independence day. She usually makes Mexican food, though.

As for the country I live in... really? Fourth of July? That's even more useless considering we did not actually gain independence on that day. You know, there was a whole war that happened afterward. Also, if my knowledge isn't failing me, I'm pretty sure we didn't even sign that awesome piece of paper until after the fourth. And John Adams wrote to his wife that July 2nd was going to be the kickass day we ran around with sparklers like idiots. So, no, I don't really celebrate that either. It's too hot in July to do anything but sit around and wish it weren't so unbearable.

Yeah, Alpha isn't impressed with this Writer's Block question. He was even less impressed with the transgender one.

This'll probably be all just FLAIL!!! but if you wanna look at my flail, I invite you.

Oh man, I've been waiting for this for so long.Collapse )
Cas badass motherfucker icon
I could not ignore this episode. I had to do my own meta of sorts. I was compelled too. Warning for possible spoilers for 5x18. I haven't really read spoilers, but I've read enough conjecture. So, the spoilers are basically the promo and conjecture.

Seriously, Cas should just smack everyone around, turn them all into his minions and make them get him mimosas.Collapse )

Wow, look at that, an actual post from me. Hi everyone!

This is gonna run like commentary, only slightly more ridiculous. Note, this is my second time watching the episode (I always watch them, at the very least, twice. Mostly for fic writing purposes like this time around) so I might go off on tangents.

Blame sparseparsley for this one, who apparently likes it when I go off and make Cas sound like a homeboy. It's just something I do with my friend Emy and when leaving reviews. So, here you go.

obviously spoilers beneath the cutCollapse )

Now to write fic about this episode. GLEE!
Cas icon
Alright, here's the thing, Supernatural is my new happy place.

I've always loved the show and, lately, it's filled a void left by two shows that pretty much left me standing around going what the fuck, I freaking loved you and you decided to screw me over.

Stargate: Atlantis, I'm looking at you. I'm looking at you with the Death Glare of Doom.

The show itself is ridiculous and heartbreaking and fairly well written. I mean sometimes I feel the writing staff gives Joss a run for his money and that's saying a lot coming from me. Does it have it's problems, yes. No television show doesn't. Keeping continuity for that long is hard, yo. Especially with the time constraints, but I have seriously adored all seasons. There were a few episodes I'd rather forget, but most of them have made me happy.

I've always avoided the fandom.

Because, seriously, some of them are batshit. A lot of them acknowledge it, some of the don't. Some of the wars they pick are weird and some of them are hilarious. I've read and enjoyed many a fic from Wincest to J2 to het. But I've always pretty much been on the sidelines.

That is, until Castiel.

And here's where I cut so my flist doesn't stage a riot because of the longness and SPOILERS!!!!.Collapse )

Alright, my soap box is done. For those of you who went TL;DR the jist is I freaking want an icon that says 'Dean/Cas shipper who thinks Sam makes rainbows and baby unicorns appear' and then just use it everywhere. I'm gonna leave this unlocked and (possibly? maybe not?) cross-post.

STARGATE ATLANTIS FANS: Help a sister out. You guys know of any LJ communities that let you post announcements for selling memorable? I've got duplicate autographs I need to sell. I think the newsletter would be good, but it's just a link. I'm also thinking the awesome_hewlett community because one of them is a David Hewlett autograph on an A Dog's Breakfast poster (I know, I hate to get rid of it, but monies are tight and I've got three DH autographs.). Anywhere else you know of?
11th-Jul-2009 01:46 am - Torchwood Children of Earth Review
My two cents on the whole thing. I waited until the end to give an accurate picture of it all.

Here there be spoilers.

ETA: Also, oddly enough, spoilers for Diary of the Dead, the season four finale of Supernatural and various Whedon shit. Oh and apparently Sunday from SGA. Yeah whatever, I got crazy here.

So I know I haven't been around for awhile and I hate that the first thing I say after such a long time away is negative ranting.

That being said.

I'm really fucking sick of these throw backs to historical events in relation to what is going on now.

Obama's first 100 days? Who gives a shit? Obama himself has said that things are going to take time. Perhaps he's pulling on some old time shit, like many, many, MANY presidents before him have done, but it's the MEDIA that keeps making a big deal about it. Obama is not FDR he doesn't not have the legacy nor is his situation anywhere near as comparable to FDRs. The economy sucks. I fucking know, okay. I work a shitty retail job for minimum wage and have to listen to everyone bitch. So I know okay. You don't have to tell me about it. I know.

And yes, it's a big debt. I will not diminish it in anyway because it's a huge fucking deal. It's a combination of things and while I'm one to think that businesses have been dwindling (there's no fucking way that a business that has been running successfully for over 50 years could suddenly tank after not showing a profit for a few months. Months people. From September to now is barely a quarter and a half, fiscally. Something was going wrong for YEARS) and that the spending HAS BEEN OUT OF CONTROL FOR AT LEAST 8 YEARS.

You know, since BUSH AND THE 'WAR'.

And two of the major bailouts happened while Bush was in office.

But I'm jumping ahead.

So, yes, it's a big deal, but FDR was dealing with debt on a WORLDWIDE scale. Germany's economy was flattened, just like France and Britain and every other major power at the time. No one had any money. FDR was also dealing with massive internal problems that we couldn't possibly have due to the safety nets his programs set up as well as a FUCKING DUST BOWL THAT DECIMATED THE MIDWEST.

So when I say it's not comparable, I'm not being dramatic.

And then I hear about these fucking Tea Parties? What the fuck?

You all realize that you do have representation right? That you voted in the people who are approving these bailouts and tax hikes and stimulus plans? That you're not being ruled by a king in another country that basically sees you as cheap labor? You do realize that you sound like shitty whiners when you compare that to shit going down in third world countries?

You have no right to call yourselves tea parties. What the Boston colonists did was because they were fed up with not being represented. It wasn't even really the taxes, though that was a big deal, it was about the fact that these taxing were being imposed on them WITHOUT ANY SAY SO FROM THEM.

You voted in your congressperson. Whether it's the one you wanted or not, that is of no consequence because that's how our democracy works, the very thing you say is failing.

It angers me that you sit there and talk about not needing a stimulus plan, you who are probably well off and couldn't possibly imagine what it would be like to work shitty job after shitty job to make ends meet.

It angers me that your fire and passion wasn't there when we were spending billions to play fucking police to another nation. It angers me that you weren't more vocal during the initial bailouts. It angers me that you want to hurt what could be the very best decision the government is doing by giving money back to the PEOPLE WHO NEED IT.

California is a state in desperate need of federal help. It's been deeply acknowledged. The only way we are going to get that help is with TAX HIKES AND A DOLE.

You rant about socialism, but your government is just trying to take care of it's people. I don't even think you know what that word means.

How do you think we're going to get out of debt as a nation? Pray?

No, it'll be because we raised taxes and we tried to stimulate the economy by encouraging spending. It's the oldest fucking economic trick in the book.

Nobody likes taxes being raised. I've ranted on cigarette taxes, but that's a completely different reason. I'm just completely floored by the uneven nature of it, rather than the tax itself. So, yes, tax bad, but fuck, we're TRILLIONS of dollars in debt. I don't think they can even calculate it now. How are you going to make this work?

They don't have an answer. They want to bitch and complain, but if something government funded ended for them, I wonder what the protest would be. I want to hear their answer other then stop bailouts and taxes. I wanna hear how they plan to fix the debt.

Because at this point all I hear is unoriginal, meaningless words.

Some Drama for Your Momma. Bullet Points are Great.

1. I was in a car accident yesterday. This was not fun. I didn't even freak out. And, you know that moment right before you hit someone where you're breaking, but you know you're going to hit them... that is the worst moment ever. I freaking lost it on my dad, and by lost it I mean that I broke down and started crying so hard that I thought I wasn't going to be able to stop myself. I did. Because I had to work. And fucking shit, it actually helped. I just forgot about all my bullshit and got a wonderful text from my dad saying he's going to take care of the whole thing. I was so tripping on it. So not something I want right now.

2. The cop that was right there because I'm a dumbass and got into an accident right in front of the police station, scolded me for sitting to close to the steering wheel. Then my dad did the same (he was really douchey about the whole thing until he wasn't. But he's a guy and cannot understand emotion, so I get it, sort of.) They both said try pillows and I should be more comfortable in any car by now. I told my dad I don't sit that close in my mom's car. It doesn't help that I really have to push on the pedals to get the car to move. And that when it hits 50 it doesn't like to move once it stops and I have to push so hard I can feel the gears hitting the floor. I don't even have to sit that close in my dad's truck. I guess I'll try pillows. I did it in high school and it was douchest thing ever.

3. The Cop also had to help me get my keys out of the car. Because they're sticking again. He asked me if it was my car and I was like, yeah and he was like have you ever heard of cleaning? And I was like I've heard of it, but it's not a concept I engage in. He just smirked. Seriously, the cop and the lady I hit were pretty cool. The lady is letting my dad fix her car without going through insurance.

4. All this being said, I've been feeling really down lately guys. I need to find my inner cheer. Maybe I need to start listening to Cobra more again. Instead of The Academy Is... which I'm sure Danielle would approve of. I embarrassed her in Hot Topic today by singing along with Summer Hair = Forever Young.

5. In a totally unrelated note, we're making shirts! It's going to be awesome! Seriously awesome! We bought the shirts and the paints and one of them is white and it glows in the dark!

My life is so random.
