Comment with “SHOWTIME!” and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your journal-of-choice with your favorite films of theirs.

[livejournal.com profile] chillibreath gave me:

** notes: This list comprised based on movies that these folks are *in* and which ones I can remember seeing, so 'fave of those I've seen them in' is probably more accurate. Mostly b/c I don't even *like* half of these people... I mean, Leo and Bale? Ugh. **

01. Hugh Laurie - Monsters vs. Aliens and Girl From Rio, Stuart Little's cute too
02. Leonardo diCaprio - er, if I *have* to pick, The Man in the Iron Mask
03. Christian Bale - ditto on the 'have to' - The Prestige
04. Mickey Rourke - Iron Man 2
05. Clint Eastwood - In the Line of Fire
06. Robert Sean Leonard - Much Ado About Nothing
07. Keanu Reeves - Much Ado About Nothing
08. Nicholas Cage - erm, the only movie I've seen of his is Con Air and that is not a fave
09. Bruce Willis - Death Becomes Her
10. Samuel L. Jackson - Iron Man 2 and Jurassic Park

01. Helen Mirren - I can't think/find a single thing that I remember her in
02. Emma Thompson - Much Ado About Nothing and My Father the Hero
03. Helena-Bonham Carter - Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
04. Wynona Rider - 1969, Dracula, Star Trek (2009)
05. Meryl Streep - Death Becomes Her
06. Geena Davis - Stuart Little
07. Renee Zellweger - Monsters vs. Aliens, and, well, *she* is okay in Chicago, but the movie itself blows
08. Julia Roberts - can't stand her, don't particularly like anything she's been in, 'cept Flatliners, but only b/c everyone else is awesome
09. Emma Watson - The Harry Potter movies, but only b/c she hasn't been in anything else.
10. Naomi Watts - er, the only thing I've seen her in is I Heart Huckabees and I don't remember enough about the movie to say it's a fave of any flavor.

imma not even tell you how many of these i had to imdb to find out what movies they're in...

Yes, indeed, I am *almost* finished with my [community profile] kink_bingo card! 2 squares to go and I, more or less, have ideas for those. You'll note the distinct lack of 'green' spaces. I currently have NO WIPs. None. Everything is either 'in beta' (or completed icon sets) or 'ideas percolating'. \o/

I fully intend to have the whole card finished and, at least, in beta by the end of the week. I have bigbang editing to do! =)

Local MiLB team won a game! They grabbed the lead early and held on through the end! Which is completely the opposite of what they've been doing most of the season.

Unfortunately, I think their luck might be tied to either playing on Friday the 13th, or [personal profile] katernater also being at a MiLB game at the same time near her hometown-ish place. *shakes head* As cool as the latter would be, I don't know if [personal profile] katernater can go to a MiLB game each time my $local_team has a game. I'm not sure she wants that much of the team's success on her shoulders in any case anyway. =)

The team actually made some minor line-up changes that might have helped a bit too. And maybe they got a strong talking-to by the coach as well. Either that, or he threatened to piss in their beer if they didn't play better. Who knows. *shrug* Maybe they got the pitcher breathing through the right eyelids. Anything's possible.

They're still in the bottom of their league, but a win's a win, right? =)



ION: 1.5 more [community profile] kink_bingo stories down! What can I say, baseball's good for my writing muses. =)

Out of morbid curiosity (the only explanation I can devise anyway), I'm watching GI Joe - yeah, the movie one. So, erm -

Dear Mr. Sommers - (and how did I miss that he directed this?)

There is this one small thing that you, as the writer/director person for these movies you make, need to remember. It's called A PLOT. And no, I don't mean a tract of land. I mean the interconnected story bits that hold the scenes of the movie together, thus forming a cohesive whole. Funny thing, it also makes the movie interesting.

Okay, in Van Helsing I can forgive a little bit with the plot holes b/c I found the movie interesting enough to watch on it's own. But for GI Joe? Man you can't just take people's childhood and slap some shit together with some CGI and witty one-liners and call it a 'movie'.

Some of the CGI wasn't even that good. Also - why are the 'Joes' suddenly dressed like Robocop? And acting like The Greatest American Hero? (RTFM already - at least TGAH had an excuse - he LOST his.) Seriously? Iron Man is laughing at you right now.

Don't even get me started on the first few minutes that told me you've seen at least 3 seasons of Stargate SG-1 and one of Dr. Who. The idea is steal the Replicators from SG-1, then give them to Dr. Who? Fail.

Also - stop setting things in Paris for you movies and using recycled Alan Silvestri music. It's formulaic. I like Silvestri's stuff - but not when Van Helsing's music is used over GI Joe.

Just how much CGI glass is broken in this movie anyway?

This is *not* the GI Joe from the pretty cool '80's cartoon. I understand modernizing, but holy crap, try to get it RIGHT, okay?

Oh, and have a PLOT for crying out loud!

No love -
H2


(( I still have 5 mins left of this movie, and I'm afraid to find out how else they've fucked this up. ))

ETA: okay - more than 5 mins, but whatever. And also - I forgot to mention Mr. Eccelston's really awful Scottish accent. *shakes head*

'Had a day off today. Days off are win. Today was pretty lazy, b/c my only real obligation was to have lunch with [personal profile] diamond9697 and family. =) We met at a local pizza place that has really good pizza (which is saying something coming from me, b/c I don't really like pizza) and there was fandom talk and baseball talk and other talk and pizza having and just stuff. Then there was ice creams and random Trivial Pursuit questions - the ice cream shop had cards in baskets on the tables, don't ask me why. The in-coming T-storm sort of made the decision for us to part ways... otherwise we probably would've been standing at the ice cream shop for most of the night. =)

[personal profile] diamond9697 - on the way back north-ward, depending on what time ya'll head out, there are breakfast-y places we can go. Ping me closer to then and we can try to work something out.


In other news:

I've been trying to catch up on reading the ever-growing stack of comic books that have been collecting over the last few months. Astonishing X-Men I'm still reading and keeping up with mostly, Wolverine Origins I'm really behind on - it's more regular than AXM - but that subscriptions all expired and I don't think I'm renewing that one just now. Probably wait for the TPBs. Dark Wolverine I'm just gonna let run out. It's not that appealing. Dresden I'll keep up with no matter what, b/c it's Dresden. Buffy and Angel I may shift over to TPBs with, mostly b/c comics are just too expensive. Honestly, I'll probably mostly keep AXM going b/c if I can get a couple issues in the middle, I'll have an unbroken string of them and my collector mind thinks that's pretty cool. =)


And: Local MiLB team won their away game tonight - \o/ team for finally winning a game. However, their AA MiLB affiliate didn't fare as well - they lost in the 13th for the 2nd night in a row. Sad sad sad showing for them. I'm only paying attention to the AA team b/c the catcher there was here until mid-way through the season and he got promoted. Which is great, but we kinda miss seeing him play. The AA team isn't that far away, so we may go to one of those games if we can work it right.

...ballgame rainout... lots and LOTS of rain. Probably a good thing though, b/c OMG was the team doing poorly. I mean like they were down by 6 after the 2nd inning. The 2nd. That's their worst start in the last 3 games. Hopefully they can pull their heads out of their butts and play better on the road.

Me? Imma try to dry out.

Also, I've realized I don't like working 1st shift b/c, even though it gets me out of work in time to go see ballgames during the summer, it is fucking impossible to get OUT of the place on time. Or close to on time. Even when I'm all set and ready to get out of there at 17:00, no dice. It's always at least 10 after before I get gone. Yeah, think I'll keep my 2nd shift, tyvm.


And, one of the greasemonkey scripts that I really miss not being able to use else-journaling sites? The collapse/expand entry one. That one needs to be standard on all the journaling sites b/c it makes for lovely 'bookmark' style reading... 'oh, left off here... next entry' - you know, if you leave and come back type of thing. =)

The one in my icon? Yeah, he's apparently decided to play for the one hockey team I can't stand. *sigh* Why? argh. There are 30 teams and when you left one of them you had to go to THIS one? Yes, yes, he's from Michigan and blah blah blah... but argh! <- me venting, deal.

This means if I'm gonna get a Dallas Stars Modano jersey (a new one, he signed my other one so I don't wear it) I either have to find one already done or get one before the official change, b/c IIRC, those shops that do custom player work don't tackle the name on any jersey but the team that player is currently signed to. *sigh - again* B/c, no, Modano or not, I will not wear a Red Wings jersey. Ever. Just won't happen. Steve Yzerman was the only thing I ever liked about that team, but Federov totally ruined it - punky little brat.

In other news... more [community profile] kink_bingo fics in the 'ready for beta-almost' bucket. 'Almost' b/c they're written, they're just not digital yet. What? I can't lug a PC to baseball games or doctor's appt's - that's just silly. But, when you have to wait 30 minutes for a 2 minute appt (which is also silly, lemme tell you), you can get a lot of writing done. =)

updated k_b card )



In other, other news - local minor league baseball team failed AGAIN. They lost last night in the 11th and tonight they just crashed around the 6th. They were AHEAD both games, then just - FAIL. *shakes head* I don't know what they were doing. Though, tonight, they didn't roll through nearly as many pitchers as last night. Hell, we thought they might have to pull the 3rd baseman who has some pitching experience as the back-up relief pitcher last night, they went through so many! Tonight's game, though, was REALLY good for the first four or five innings. It's really sad when they just 'flop' in the middle of the game. Also - the guy who was catching tonight totally needs to hit a homerun or imma tell him he's not allowed to catch here no mo'. It's an unofficial rule - catchers for this team have to have good batting averages. =)


ETA: this edit just out of curiosity to see what the 'crossposts' thingy does after edits. B/c typically it just links to my IJ entry, but this time it also linked to DJ (after typo edit); so, if I edit again, will it pick up LJ or Inksome? test test test....

ETA2: yes it does. First post: IJ; 1st edit: DJ; 2nd edit: LJ; so, I should be able to get Inksome linked there now too. Though, I'd figure it should link 'em all the first time...

ETA3: additional peculiarity - after ETA2, it reverted to just IJ. *ponders and skips off to file a Support Request* b/c that's just weird.

ETA4: and with that last edit - all evidence of crosspost-y-ness went away. hmmmmm

Kind of more 'forgot abouts'... 'cept there's just the one. A fic I wrote for the 'A Fic Walks Into a Bar' challenge:

Average Night, Unusual Bar | DW | H2sMsK | OTW

I forgot to post about it/post it/etc... it was done back in like March or so. Whoops!



And - baseball stuffs. Okay, really, is there some special measuring stick they use for measuring the height of these guys? B/c I swear the ones they say are 5'10" or 5'11" are closer to 5'7" or 5'8". I mean, I've been close enough to a couple to be pretty damned sure they aren't the height the roster says they are. And there's one guy on one of the other teams and the roster claims he's 5'10" and I'm certain the only way he's that tall is when he stands on a milk crate. I'm pretty sure it's a conspiracy against average-height people and they add 2" to all the players 'real' heights to make them all feel taller. Way to go making us shorter folks feel shorter than we already felt. We already have to wear heels just to be the same height as everyone else. Stop this 'padding' thing already! =)

Nothing much yet. Just a few more finished items and a few more WIP items. And, indeed, I do have a whole line finished! But, as I'm being ambitious this first time out, I'm aiming for a blackout... which means - more writing to do! So, I must away...

First - is anyone willing to beta my [community profile] kink_bingo fics? I need to finish the 5th one for my bingo line, but I have the other 4 for that line, plus some others finished if anyone's up to beta. Fandoms include: House, MD, In Plain Sight, Iron Man, and X-Files circa S8/9.

ETA: now that I've double-checked the time-frame for completing Bingos... I *might* be able to get more of these done than just the one line. *ponders*

and Friday Five:


# What is your favorite drink of all time? Does it hold a special memory to you or is it just because it tastes good?

Vanilla Coke. At least right now. It changes every few years, but I love Vanilla Coke. I'd prefer Vanilla Coke Zero, but since it's hard enough finding regular Van Coke, I'll take that.


# Tea or coffee or hot cocoa?

All of the above, depending on my mood. I love tea! Hot cocoa is fabulous in the winter, especially w/ a little peppermint in it - however you do yours, candy canes, Schnapps, what have you. And I like coffee, but I can only drink decaf anymore. Regular coffee does bad things to my tummy. Seriously - decaf frap's at Starbucks - best thing introduced in years. =)


# Best summer time drink?

Lemonade. Chik-fil-a makes a lovely diet lemonade sweetened with Splenda, so it's just the right amount of sweet w/o the extra calories and still lemon-tart. Other than that - gimme water when it's hot.


# Worst soda brand ever?

I wasn't thrilled about Jones - cane sugar is lovely, but too much is a bad bad thing.


# Water: flavored, bottled, carbonated, or regular old tap?

Tap water that's been run through a Brita filter is my water of choice. Bottled if I have to. Flavors are useless and taste funny and carbonated water is too much like Alka-Seltzer. No thanks. Unless the carb'd water is mixed in with some alcohol, in which case, yeah, that's fine. =)




So, couple other things - I haz new sunglasses! My old ones were several years old and kind of failed at blocking the sun anymore, so - new ones. Polarized and shiny. Possibly a bit more expensive than they needed to be (though not much more than what it would've cost me to get 'em at the optometrist, considering it costs 'extra' to NOT get the 'script in the lenses - what the shit is that anyway?), but that does mean that I won't toss 'em randomly on the floor or in a bag or something.

Also - checking out Last.fm... so far, pretty nifty. We'll see how long it holds my interest. =)

really - i think this story is trying to eat me alive...



also - playing with testing the crossposting footers for fun! =)


ETA: just checked my post from 3 July and I've upped my word count by nearly 11k in 20 days... that's pretty freakin' awesome for someone who writes as damned slowly as I do. =)
