fai_dust: Eureka: 2x03 - Unpredictable (.dumb)

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.

huh?

fai_dust: Questionable Content #1696 (.sick: sleepless)

Okay, when you're having trouble following The Daily Show or The Colbert Report, it's a sign you're too loopy to acomplish anything, make wise decisions or spell correctly. Too bad I didn't catch it back at 2:00AM, huh?

But I heard, understood and had the brain capasity to look the quote up (because God knows I'm not typing a line of at least 25 words!) and pass it along.

Colbert: For the record, I believe Sarah Palin is a true statesman whose experience as a failed Vice Presidential candidate, half term governor and eight episode reality star, has fully prepared her to take control of our nuclear arsenal.

[personal profile] i_want_2 , it reminded me of you. How did you put it, "Fucking retarded"?
fai_dust: Battlestar 2003 (comic): issue #00 (battlestar 2003: .adama)
I've had this quote in my head on and off for about a week. Until I looked it up, I could have sworn it was Cain that said it, but whatever. Not that I'm complaining either about having it in my head or about being wrong. It's the most normal thing my brain has produced in too long.
"Let's all sit down and talk about how we feel about martial law."
     ~ Ellen Tigh, (Battlestar Galactica, 2003; 2x04)

the full line (& semi-context) of the quote )

Don't say it; I refuse to admit my brain is connecting this to anything in relivent news.
Also, because I'm actually a little linear today, I am not obsessing on people I know or know of who pull this BS. Linear is nice.
fai_dust: BtVS: 5x15 - I Was Made to Love You (.the hell)
(still at home, still seeing things, going a little extra crazy because I am at home)

1. "The first thing the Warren Commission found is that it is easier to reach a predetermined decision if you overlook pesky distractions. These include unreliable witnesses who might testify to things that don't fit in with your theory, physical evidence that hasn't been planted medical evidence that hasn't been altered, Mafia co-conspirators who haven't been rubbed out yet, et cetera." [UFOs, JFK, and Elvis by Richard Belzer (pg.33)]
It is the shit. Awesome, funny, cynical and in no way meant to be taken compleatly serously. More info here.
.
2. While looking for a quote from a children's book (which I still haven't found), found this site and ended up making a profile. Yay books!
- I haven't decided if I'm going to add series, because it would take a while to find 8-16 books per series, or TV-related books (BtVS, Star Trek, ect.)
.
3. A while ago, my grandmother started to read "cowboy books", most of which she buys at the drugstore. A few months ago, I realized that was code for "porn, set in the wild west".
.
4. From grade 11 'university-level' chemistry: "Dylan and Harper, ionic, MX (polar)". Somehow, this is a way to remember chemical bond types. It was expanded to include stuff for my college Organic Chemistry class, which may be rembled about later, when I find the post-it and feel like doing so at the same time I remember I wanted to.
.
5. "Calm down?! I am wearing sunglasses at night! You know who does that? No-talent douchebags." I don't follow Supernatural, it just got too dark and continuity-based for a show that didn't start out as either. But I remember my sister watching it ages ago when I was in the room and every time I remember this line, it sends me into giggles. Last year, I told a classmate about it (after class) and a guy (an adult in the class) overheard me and yelled "Are you dissin' H?", really offended. Now, I have my own obsessions, but really, I never actually said who Dean (and by extention, I) was talking about, so that's really rather sad.
.
6. ...uh, actually this one is quazi-related to #5, at least in my own brain... "...Beyond the series, Bono is especially notable for being an Irish guy on a sci-fi TV show not played by Colm Meaney." Because it's very true and while Colm Meaney is awesome, so is Mark Sheppard. (The quote is from a page that used to be on Wiki Frakr, but, along with most of their best pages, broke, and had to be retrived from the web.archive site here.
.
7. At least once a week, when I get serious-brain, I think about making a "happy-thoughts" comm (yes, I just made that up) where a weekly challange is something like "post an image of a cute animal" or "a quote related to (x)", usually non-fandom specific and no upsetting shit allowed. Then I think, what would be the point? I mean, I could probably wrangle a few friends into co-mod-ing it with me, but would anyone other then me actually get anything out of it?
.
8. I fould my cell phone, which I lost at least six months ago, a few days ago! I knew it was somewhere in my room, but I couldn't find the damn thing until I was looking for the power coard to my extrenal hard drive. Which I still have to find, but whatever.
.
9. I miss The Bridge. I know there are a bunch of cop shows out there and most have a very similar concept, but this was one of the few that didn't. Also, it gave a different perspective to the police force. Granted, it wasn't always a positive one, but that's how life is. I mean, I respect and am greatful for the work the police do, but there are always going to be people who mess up, are stupid, and even corrupt, no matter what job they do. And the acting was really good, too.
.
10. "This is the New York that I love-- the one you never see on a postcard." / "Now, there's an untapped market; tranny hooker postcards." Is 'tranny' ('trannie'?) an offensive term? I've heard people say it is (well, read people say so, mostly on S-D), but usually, when I hear the actual term used, it's mostly just as a lazy way of saying transsexual.
(...and by the way, Blue Bloods is awesome. Watch it!)
.
11. Why is it that LJ & DW mood images have 'drunk' as an unhappy face but 'crazy' as a good one?
. .
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.
fai_dust: law & order: 15x13 - Ain't No Love (Default)

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.

Megan
: I mean it. If we don't get our ducks in a row, we're going to regret it.
Laura: I dislike that expression. No one tells a duck what to do.
(and this quote really has nothing to do with this, other then the expression "getting my ducks in a row", but I like it. I always thought it was cute.)
 
December gifts; I have sent out the requests for what people would like. If I missed you, I apologise, I'm rather loopy today and will doublecheck my list tomorrow. (GS, in your case, I assumed Dawn/Faith. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Same goes for you Liz, only with John/Rodney.)
 
Since last year's holiday fic gifts ended up being a miserable faleure, I'm trying something different this year. I used to do goody-bags for all my friends when I was in grade school, and I really enjoyed it. Just candy, stickers and dollar-store trinkets that reminded me of the person. I did it to say "You've been a great friend! I like you 'cause you're cool and nice. This is my way of expressing it without actually gushing and sounding like a stalker." No stress, just love.
Also, I do not expect or want anything in return. If you happen to be doing gifts for people, then that's fine. But please don't feel obligated to do anything because I am. That would make this awkward and I really don't want to do that. I'm just a five-year-old at heart and like to make people things.

fai_dust: marvel comics: NewMutantsII - issue #11 (.love)
there is really no point to this, other then that these have either encouraged me, sent me into giggles, validated me in some way, or otherwise made my day (or longer) a little better. Most of them I have stuck into various journal posts just because, but it's nice to have them all in one place without creating a tag that isn't needed (if there's an 'x' link after the credit, it's just a link to the post I used it in).
They are grouped by fandom, but the fandoms are in no particular order.
A good sourse for quotes is http://en.wikiquote.org/, but if and when I ever get around to creating a resourse post, I'll add other sites as well.

"Trying to send him to a specific place is sort of like, like, trying to hit a... puppy, by throwing a live bee at it... Which is a weird image, and you should all just forget it." (BtVS, Willow; 5x06 - Triangle) x

Giles: Dear god, Buffy, there's only so much I can take. We're going to have to change the system. A fourteen-year-old's too old to be babysat, and it's not fair on her.
Buffy: *nods, grins) What'd she make you do?
Giles: Um, well, we listened to aggressively cheerful music sung by people chosen for their ability to dance ... then we ate cookie dough and talked about boys.
(BtVS; 5x15 - I Was Made to Love You) x

Tara: Everyone, before we jump all over her, people do strange things when someone they love dies. When I lost my mother, I-I did some pretty dumb stuff, like lying to my family and staying out all night.

Giles: Oh, yes, dozens. There's an enormous amount of research we should do before - no, I'm lying. I haven't got squat, I just like to see Xander squirm.

Giles: I assume there's a perfectly reasonable and not at all insane explanation here.
Anya: We thought you might be non-corporeal evil.
Dawn: We got a call. We couldn't remember you touching anything.
Xander: We had to make sure you were OK. We were worried.
Giles: Oh. That's very sweet. Now wait a minute; you think I'm evil... if I bring a group of girls on a camping trip and don't touch them?

Matt Albie: Was she calling us Hollywood liberals or was she calling us gay?
Danny Tripp: It's a pretty fine distinction.
(Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip; 1x02 - The Cold Open)

Matt Albie: Are you concerned that a significant portion of your fanbase in both music and television is gay and that any number of people who work with you here are gay.
Harriet Hayes: Hang on, you don’t mean to say that there are homosexuals and lesbians in show business, do you? Because I’ll walk right out this building!

Harriet Hayes: You live off Mulholland. There are other streets in the country where marriage is important.

and now for some quotes from fanfiction, just because

"On Sateda, we would beat him up."
Rodney blinked at him. "Because Teyla's interested in him? Shouldn't we, you know, wait until he acts interested?"
"No. Beat him up first. If he comes back he's serious."
The really horrible part was that Rodney could almost grasp the logic of that, which meant he'd suffered one too many concussions and obviously lost too many critical brain cells.
"Makes sense to me," Sheppard said.
(Sheppard's Pie Stargate Atlantis; by auburn) x




and also, some very silly website quotes, just because they are too silly not to include

Kara "Starfrak" Thrace is a conflicted mess who is good with a stick. Most of this comes from the fact she has a destiny... which was to piss off the fans with her stupid affair with her dead fiancee's retarded brother. Also, she was super-powered in the first season, being the best at pretty much everything until she landed on whatever hellhole Helo and his frak-bot were on.
That means she can fly men as well as she can fly a Viper ... which means both tend to crash and burn. Not even her husband can escape this fate.
Thrace also has the tendency, shall we say, to make herself available to many of the men on Galactica. Maybe she would have done the same to Admiral Cain had she lived.
(Starbuck (Kara Thrace) page @ Wiki Frakr; a Battlestar Galactica mock-wiki site) x.x

With muscles clearly larger than his balls, Sam's main role is as Starbuck's whipping boy but as previously established, he quite likes this. During the opening episode of Season 4, Sam's RED EYE was activated. Commonly thought to be a Cylon's means of identifying friend from foe, this is in fact a personal beeper system known only to him and Starbuck. She beeps, he comes a-running, and lots of frakking commences.
(...)
Sam has recently been elevated to badassery on Adama's and Rummy's level, having survived a bullet wound to the head. Sadly, his badassery was short-lived, since he's now a frakking vegetable, thanks to Cottle's first surgery cock-up.
