I'm off! Be back Sunday.

Things I may or may not have done before I left - compiled a primer for myself on Major League Baseball rules, just to make sure I've got things right, and a list of all GK characters.

oh my god, you guys, and this is on top of the 2K of Edmund/Ianto sequel I've been poking at ever since I wrote the first one, and then Remix (which I should really get started on, obviously).

I'll have a lot of time in the car?

Now playing only on Dreamwidth: Sixteen Pounds, Titanium (my Generation Kill meta/picspam/pimping post).

oh, last night's Criminal Minds! a thing of BEAUTY. Pitch-perfect character interaction, focus on the victims and their agency, Reid and Prentiss and Morgan being adorable, Garcia being <3333333333333333, Rossi dry and snarky, Hotch and his non-reassurances, JJ and how she still worries when parenting and children are involved. Criminal Minds is always good, but when it's at it's best it's like no time went by at all while you were watching it, and last night it was at it's best. (Prentiss and Reid gambling for pretzels and cheetos! omg adorable.)

you guys tonight is the second-to-last episode of Supernatural Season 5. *panicky eyes* I don't know how they're fixing this. but at least there is a Season 6! and the producers have sworn that they're wrapping up this plotline the way they always meant to, so I don't have to worry about plot decay.

and Saturday a new Who! in VENICE, with Rory and vampires! it's going to be fabulous.

Unfortunately, I won't get to see Doctor Who until Sunday. Friday afternoon my sister and I are driving down to St. Petersburg to visit a really close friend in college. She got engaged recently and she's moving out West to be with her fiance and switching colleges, so this may be one of the last times we see her for a while. D: but we're going to be staying overnight and coming back only late on Saturday.

on a last note, [personal profile] newredshoes asked "What ridiculous AU do YOU want?" to her f-list, and I immediately went "OMG GK BASEBALL AU" (of course! if only my dad realized what an influence baseball has been on my life, despite only playing one season of softball). I want it, guys. where is the baseball AU? must I write it myself? I do not have time! (Fact: if it's a team show, I want a baseball AU. I just want it much more desperately than normal for GK.)

maybe I just desperately want all kinds of crossovers and AU's? that's probably part of it.

Disclaimers/Warnings: I do not own Generation Kill, etc. All screencaps are from Oxoniensis, found here. Quotations will likely include profanity and content that is either offensive, graphic, or both.

Generation Kill

Basic Premise: Generation Kill is a 7-series HBO miniseries, based very very closely on the book of the same name by Evan Wright. It is a fairly factual look at Evan Wright's time as a reporter for Rolling Stone embedded in the 1st Reconnaissance Marines Battalion during the invasion of Iraq. In short, it's an apolitical look at the lives of the soldiers as they were. The show made a strong effort at keeping close to the truth - one Marine played himself, another played a small role. Both (plus others) acted as military advisers. The result is pretty amazing, and I think the cinematography is pretty gorgeous too.
This is really long, but the (really) short version is that you should watch this show. )

There are like twenty other .gifs and lots of quotes and pictures I could spam you with, but you should just watch the show now, and then head over to [livejournal.com profile] generation_kill and hang out there.

*falls over*

So, it is Three Weeks for Dreamwidth. I'm planning to do a GK reaction post sometime, because that was a beautiful, beautiful show, in the way truth is beautiful. And I'm also snagging from everywhere:

What kind of topics/entries would you like to see me posting about? Any particular questions you've always wanted to ask me but have resisted because the answer would be a huge essay? Ever want to wind me up and watch me go on a particular topic? Anything you've heard me say "I should write that entry about $foo I've been meaning to write" and have been patiently waiting for?

Alternatively, you can request fic for any of my fandoms that may or may not get written (ACK FINALS) and posted only on DW.

ALSO for those SPN fans reading this, read Below skyscrapers (for a dropout). It's for an exchange, so the author's anonymous at the moment. It's Dean/Castiel, with some of the most well-done worldbuilding I've seen in a long time. I almost wish it was original work, because the world created in this fic is incredible, so pulled together, all these little details at the edges.

... it feels kind of weird to be referring to Recon Marines as adorable, but !!! THEY ARE. (omg Ray pointing to Brad and Brad doing the clapping for the song completely deadpan without even looking at him. <333 they are hilarious!)

things that are fascinating: [personal profile] eumelia 's theory on the Church + The Weeping Angels in 5x04 of Doctor Who. I mean, horrifying, but fascinating. ALSO that crazy spoiler for 5x08! interestiiiing.

so today in Psychology, we did the assignment given to us last week, which was split up in groups and present a skit to the class representing a psychological disorder, which the class would then guess. I got to a group late. They had already decided what they were doing. It was Bipolar Disorder. so today, because I was the only one in the group even remotely okay with acting in front of people, I got applauded for my very accurate depiction of a manic depressive, completely with someone saying "that was so bipolar!" it was kind of hilarious.

Floridian weather! it baffles ALL of us. :D

for the record? it was in the 60's most of today and yesterday. However! Monday, Sunday and Saturday? 83 in the shade. in the evening.

Yeah, I don't get it either.

and oh hey, [livejournal.com profile] sgrio , you know that find-the-celebrity-lookalike game you play? well, there is a guy who works at my local meat market (about a mile away) who is a dead ringer for Jeremy Renner. no, seriously. voice too! he SOUNDS like him. when I go in and he's there I go "man, I wasn't just making it up!' every time. I don't think it makes sense that Jeremy Renner is moonlighting at a meat market in Smalltown, Florida, though.

I'm also finally getting around to watching Generation Kill, with Band of Brothers next on my list of shows to watch, though that'll probably have to wait until I get out of school. (OMG SO SOON.) Ray! Brad! Nate! Doc! Rudy, playing Rudy! Poke! also Trombley is kind of scarily psychotic, o.O

okay, now to bed. agh, have to speak in front of the class tomorrow. *flail*

(hey I get SPN in just a day-ish! and Doctor Who soon afterwards WOO!)
