Colbert: Mainly, I want to see it to get answers about the shocking regime collapse on everybody's mind; Canada's coalition minority government, lead by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, fell today. The Canadian government has fallen! As we speak, [I know a chilling story,] as we speak, marauding bands of rebel Inuit are storming parliament on beaver-back while embattled prime minister Stephen Harper orders mounties to dump cauldrons of mapel syrup on them!

Good to know this is happening in my country.

Also, I may have a way to beat the hazy brain. Free-based crack* is the shit!

*I am in no way promoting free-based crack, or any other drug not perscribed by a licensed physician. In actuality, they have put me back on the brand-name ADD medication methylphenidate hydrochloride Concerta which has much different effects then the generic drug, as well as upping my dose to off-set the stupid-brain of my antipsychotics.
fai_dust: Star Trek; DS9: 7x03 (.back on track)

I have been home since Sunday. I am still feeling crazy, but to the few friends I mentioned my, uh, experimentation with my meds, it was informative. The second night, I actually had Greg a little worried because I was so mellow (and not bouncing off the walls or wanting to spin around every thirty minutes), happy just to watch Andromeda and either doodle or play Solitare.

Also, because I am too ADD to work on the over-due holiday gifts, I have been staring at a story board for one of my own conceps that will never see the light of day, and coming up with 'clever' t-shirt designs for a specific tries-too-hard character. ∴ this lead to me having to check with Google to see if it was "Rule 43" or "Rule 34", and I re-found this; http://www.xkcd.com/305/ Likely most of the internet population has read it before, but it's silly and cute.

PS (another dumb quote); I can't get "All right, you liberal pansy sex fiends! 1940s morality is back and it's going to set you fuckers straight!" out of my head. Which is not abnormal, but what should be at least a little worring is that even as an uptight, margenly homophobic, mock (as in, not from a real comic), Steve Rogers still just seems 'quirky'. (from this mock, which I've rec-ed before and am sure most of you have seen as well.)
fai_dust: battlestar 2003: 1x02 - Water (.breakdown)

I'm having hallucinations, this time worse then anything I can remember that wasn't caused by a week of no sleep. So I couldn't go to school today. Also, I missed Thursday because I couldn't walk. This is not good.

Lots of weird shit going on, none of it staying in my head long enough to post. And my minset has been just this side of too serious to be fully happy. Yuck.

So to go with my mindset (and because I've run out of funny/light hearted drama with silly banter, not to mention attempting to shake a rather peculiar image from my crazy-brain), I present you quotes from Law and Order 6x23, because even though the whole episode is depressing on every level, it's got that whole moral-delema from both perspectives that caused so much contraversy and a lot of character bulding. blah,blah[mini rant/review of ep],blah,blah )

You can quit the profession, Claire. You just can't quit the human race. )
 
And now for two other TV related bitching points;
- Big Bang Theory; did anyone else get the impression that whole creepy Raj fantasizing about the squeeky girl was an excuese to get away with the dance sequance?
- Mr. Sunshine; I liked the pilot, although it felt like Matthew Perry took all my favorite aspects of his character in Studio 60 and used them in this. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. It was cute. And if it manages to stay the way it was set up, it won't make it past a full season. Suck is the way of comedy with quazi non-PC humor.

...which seems about par for the course on LJ. I was cleaning out my various bags (purse, laptop case, girly backpack meant for small children & Hello Kitty tin lunchbox I use as a smaller purse) and I realized just how many things I jot down on Post-Its and the backs of scrap paper to write about (on LJ or just my real journal) that have actual substance but by the time I'm at my computer, they're either forgotten or displaces by unimportant rambling.
 
(1) - Wow. I never what level of controversy Ctrl+Alt+Del had surrounding it. It's... shocking, to say the least.
(2) - I have been meaning to say this for a few weeks now, but I forget almost right after my "lesson" (which I suspect is subconsciously intentional); I can no longer innocentally enjoy Greg Land's art without either seeing bad art, bad "things", or getting mild vertigo from all the weird angles in one frame. No fair!
(3) - [personal profile] i_want_2 , remember when you said the "writers' block" that goes beyong writing and covers all fandom-related things is called "fandom burnout"? You don't happen to know a cure, do you?
(4) - LJ finally got back to me on the support question I posted over a month ago about being unable to log in; they quoted the FAQ at me. Really? It took them over a month to direct me there? I wonder if LJ's hiring from the Toaster School of Tech Support as well...
(5) - Yesterday, my blood pressure shot right down, so I couldn't get out of bed until noon and was pretty useless all day. Today, my left arm is seizuring so badly I have to sit on it. Blegh. Could be worse; it could be my right arm. I'll take what I can get.
 
+ remember all those subjects I mentioned on Friday? I'll get to them (even if you don't care). I know this because three of them are half-typed.

Prioritizing has never been my strong suit, which is oh-so-evidet to me right now. It is 2:15 AM and even though I have been in a groggy stupor all day, I cannot sleep. Which is a pain in the ass at any time, but even more so when I have a specialest appointment tomorrow. But whatever. What's really bugging me is that over an hour ago, I decided to stop trying (it never works) and spend some time working on December-holiday gifts, because my timeline is all f-ed up allready and it's going to be tight. So what have I sepnt the time doing? Reading Ctrl+Alt+Del comics which I ought to know by heart because I started from the begining, am only up to June of 2004 and used to spend every weekend I spent at my dad's reading them (years ago, granted, but still).

Oh, and even working on fandom gifts is technically procrastinating, because I should be working on the assignments for my on-line class that I was given an extention on. *sigh*

ps; icon fun )

edit 1.0 - (2:59 AM); Well fuck. In case there is anyone who reads my journal and doesn't follow xkcd (unlikely, but I didn't until a few months ago when [info]conser told me they have a syndicate at LJ), read this. semi-sarcastic spoilercut )But it doesn't, and, oddly, it cheered me up a little about my appointment tomorrow in nine hours.
edit 1.1(3:11 AM) I actually went to comment on the feed, because I thought it would be nice to let the artest know their work affected me. I can't though. *sigh* I keep forgetting that I can't log in and end up getting frusterated all over again.

fai_dust: BtVS: 1x12 - Prophecy Girl (.disappointed)
Y'know, I've always hated the thought process of "Why me?" Probably because with all my health isues, it would just lead to a lifetime of self-involved wallowing. Also, because it sounds like you believe someone else would somehow be more deserving of the shit you're going through. But right now, I can't help it. All the shit going on right now is just too damn much. I swear, it's like my life is a terrible drama where someone tried to take all the extream cliché of evening drama programs and threw them all on one person. Right now, I feel like it's the only explination. Who else has to deal with all this shit?

You know that there's a chance your skirts are a little too short when your shadow is in front of you and it looks like you're wearing leggings insted of a skirt. I'm too lazy to change, however. And my skirt is very comfortable.
fai_dust: Stargate Atlantis: 2x04 - Duet (.not sure)

*this is not a gay pun
 
To me "going out with friends" is quite often more comfortable when I am actually just over at a friend's house cooking dinner there and watching TV**. I am forever flip-floping between wondering if this is really strange and feeling guilty because then the friend whom I am visiting is not actually getting out. That guilt is only worsened by the fact that I can never have them over at my place because my mom freaks out if I have someone over because the house is a "sty" (you know, it looks like people actually live in it), and it pisses me off because I am the only one of her three kids this applies to, because I would have them upstairs where as my brother and sister hand out in the basement (as in the cesspit; there is actually food going moldy on the coffee table down there. 
 
But at the same time, I know when I eventually get a place of my own, I will probably be the kind of shut-in who never wants to always have a friend over rather then actually having to leave my house. Is this better or worse?

Serously, I found this really depressing. I mean, it's probably meant to be hopeful, but concidering I don't have much hope for the homophobic bullshit to change much in the next million years... yeah.
 
Geeze, what's with all the gay stuff lately? You know how sometimes you realize a lot of stuff you read/watch/ect. is on one subject? This is that.
fai_dust: Eureka: 2x03 - Unpredictable (.dumb)
I'm going through the images saved on my computer and pulling the ones I'll need to make holiday gift graphics. However, some of them are characters I don't usually use (ie; Rodney from SGA caps when I usually only search for Elizabeth, Teyla & Ford), so part way through, I end up switching to autopilot and start skipping past the ones I should be looking for. It's a pain.

Or something. I don't know. Working on a challange entry for femslash_land and would you believe it's hard to write for a character in a show you haven't seen in, oh, about five or six years. I used to love it but I don't have the last two seasons on DVD and I don't download illigally. So, now I'm streaming it illigally instead, which I'm telling myself is better, although I have now idea how it could be.

fai_dust: BtVS: season 8 [comic] issue #018 - "Time of Your Life" arc (.dork)

I am feeling very unpleasant today; shaky, jittery&jumpy, unable to focus and oh so very scattered. So, basically, bad-manic. Not fun. Even fangirl-squee excitable exhilaration isn't making it better. *sigh*

1. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
2. before [info]_snitchbitch first asked if there would be any interest in a daily science fiction comm, I had never heard of a daily community. Since, I have found a few (mostly Stargate related), but they're all images as opposed to actual entries with information. At first, I couldn't understand the point of them; why post an image that -odds are- everyone has seen before and has no reason beyond 'ooh, pretty!'?
      However, my opinion has changed. If a particular image inspires me or is overwhelmingly pretty/sexy, it often inspires an idea for LJ icons. Unfortunatally, as I said, other then SG, I have yet to find one that is currentally active in any fandom I follow.
      And everytime I think about this, I want to start either a BtVS or Marvel comics one (maybe both). [For about .2 seconds, I concidered an icontest comm, but even I'm not that much of a masochist.] I have no idea if it would be worth the effort, though.

...and not I shall go back to trying to write my half of the love letter challange and searching for an image I can use for a 'Panorama' icon set, both for [info]femslash_land challanges.

fai_dust: marvel comics: NewMutantsII - issue #11 (.comfort)

The horrors of badfic cannot be put into words. Ugh. And bonesfiction.com is home to a lot of it.
 
To put this into context; it's 2 am, I can't sleep and just watched a particular episode of Bones that had me wondeing if Booth/Hodgens could work. AO3 only had one (albet good, cute) fic and LJ is a bitch to search for comms that support a rare 'ship, but I found this archive through a comm and... yeah. Don't bother going there. It's bad. All the summaries read like a first-time writer and the fic is no better. And it doesn't even look like the site even knows what slash is.
 
 
Oh, and on a semi-OT; Comms without a proper tagging system are a bitch to navigate. I admit I went a little overboard on my personal fandom comm (see?) but at least it makes locating particular fandoms, genras, fanworks or 'ships simple enough. A good example of a comm with a good tagging system is [info]youngavengers.
   To comm mods; when starting a comm, right after choosing the layout, creat at least a basic tagging system. Please. As long as you know the community's focus (and if you just created it yourself, there's no reason on earth for you not to aside from, like, brain damage) you should be able to come up with a decent number of tags to help members find what they're looking for without having to go through a zillion old posts.
fai_dust: law & order: 15x13 - Ain't No Love (marvel: nmII - Laurie&Sofia 'I'll play t)

Fact: Writer's block is painful, and nothing can cure it, it just has to be waited out.
   And yet, even knowing this, I keep trying to fight with it. Not that it works. So, as was inevitably going to happen, I did not suceed in writing the Odo/Bashir fic promised to [info]i_want_2 which I know is lurking in the back of my brain, mocking me. Instead, I spent over nine hours on comicvine coming up with the second of two masterlists for ymresource. Which did need to be done, but nine hours? That's a day I'm never getting back. 
 
But I have signed up for three challange tables that will hopefully help (I will beat my writers' block into submission. It will work. Because alchol, tranqus, ADD meds, caffeen or 72h without sleep (individually and varing combinations of) have not worked, so this will have to. And in the next few days, I will be posting a very random & specific request for multiple types of prompts.

fai_dust: Eureka: 2x11 - Maneater [Lexa Doig as Anna Young] (eureka: 2x11 - dr. young "workplace")

I like Laura Cadman a lot better then I like Tess Fontana. Which may have something to do with the fact that Cadman amused me in canon & is usually adorable in fic where as I wanted to shoot Fontana at least 90% of the time.
 
...which, evidentally, I felt everyone needed to know.

I like Pilar (Eureka), I really do, but she's so vacent most of the time. I never realised how much so, though, until I was making these. For a brilliant girl, she's a total space-head. *shrugs* Eh, she's still sweet.

So my dogs wouldn't shut up today and I ended up calling the "freaking honey-crusted nut bars". It took me all day to figure out where on earth I picked up that term.
 
I love Studio 60. 

Matt Albie: I read a piece in US news and world report about the next presidential elections, Gore versus Bush, strongly influenced by what people are calling values voters.
Harriet Hayes: Yeah?
Matt Albie: The Christian rite of angelicals, honey crusted nut-bars.
Harriet Hayes: Yeah.
Matt Albie: And this is because of a survey showing that people feel that America has lost its moral compass under Clinton.
Harriet Hayes: And?
Matt Albie: We've got to start mocking these people.
Harriet Hayes: Yeah.
Matt Albie: And not just because they're a walking vending machine of punchlines, because they're dangerous. This is the thought that was running through my head when I read yet another survey that said, I'm not making this up, 68% of Amercians believe in angels.
