Fandom-related. Specifically - House

there's gonna be some angry words here; if you like the current 'set-up' on House - stay far, far away )

Musics: Meatloaf, this song of yours - "If I Can't Have You" is lovely, but your drums and cymbals are so loud that I can't hear Mr. Laurie's beautiful piano playing all that well. This makes me sad, b/c I like piano music. And I especially like Mr. Laurie tickling the ivories. It's a thing. So, this song would be lovely 'unplugged'. XD


Houses: Dear Fox/Universal/et al - as lovely a birthday present as House, MD Season Six on DVD would be, it would be far lovlier if the season wasn't so damned disappointing. Please to be trying harder next year.

I'd like to know how a season starts off so epically awesome (hello, "Broken pts 1 & 2" that were gorgeous), then spend the rest of the season sinking into the abyss? "Teamwork" was an okay episode and the ending was really good (except the part where $teammember left), but with $teammember's reappearance in "Lockdown" (which was not as epically awesome as you think it was, despite Mr. Laurie being behind the camera), the season stooped to nearly shark-jumping depths. Not a stellar season by any stretch - though I kept hoping - so, not the best birthday present ever.*


Butchers: have a Nook? Or the B&N e-reader app installed somewhere? Then head off to your local B&N store before 30 May 2010 to get a code for a free download of Storm Front - book one of the Dresden Files! =) It's shiny! And this week w/ the code - it's FREE! Alas, it's also probably US or North America only.

However, for those outside the US, Amazon offers the first 11 books for Kindle (AFAIK) and I've also heard/read that Amazon and Penguin got the bugs out of their butts and Changes (book 12) will be available for Kindle again soon.




* House S6 releases on DVD on my birthday this year - thank you so much Fox/Universal... ugh

Yes, odd subject, but my House, MD 2010 calendar showed up today. It was amazingly hard to find, for some reason. Why is everyone online suddenly sold out of calendars by mid-November?

Fortunately, NBC Universal (which owns production rights to House, though it's a Fox program) had plenty! And! on sale! woot!

I also have a T-shirt coming, but apparently that won't be here until later. :(

But - I can haz House calendar! \o/

Thing 1: This - Gatecon 2010 will be the last - makes me sad. But only because it means there won't be more Gatecons to go to after this one. Not that I'd necessarily be able to go because I have plans to be in school for the next three years, but with this as the last one, there won't be the opportunity.

However, while I don't know exactly how much work goes into planning and running a convention, I am aware of how much work it is to make sure it keeps going, because I've been a part of that machine. I can honestly say, as a full-time volunteer, there is never a dull moment. Even when you're 'relaxing', there is always something going on.

The only question I have is - where the hell are we all gonna go to see each other now? XD


Thing 2: I really need to get on the ball and write my updated personal statement thingy for the law school application that I need to submit by 01 December 2009. Someone poke me about once a week about this one, okay?


Thing 3: This little piggy -> Archive of Our Own - is going into Open Beta very soon. There will be invites involved, but, well, you'll see when the announcement goes out. XD *is sneaky*


Thing 4: House, M.D. is back tomorrow after being not on for two weeks. Booooooo baseball that interrupts my tv! (Especially since hockey doesn't get aired on TV except on stations that I don't have... screw you ESPN/ABC! And thank you for confirming that my decision to not watch ABC was a good one.)


Thing 5: Speaking of hockey - imma going to a game in December! My team (the Stars) plays the 'Canes every other year now that the NHL switched up the schedule things and made stuff all weird and complicated. (I liked the old format better b/c I could see my team EVERY year, tyvm!) It'd be nice if they'd have it set up so that the Stars played the Caps at DC one year and the 'Canes at Raleigh one year, but noooooooo - they play 'em both 'away' in the same year and I can't manage two games each year. Maybe if I didn't have to drive as far and the games didn't always fall in the middle of the week! Bring back the old format!


I think that's about all for now... I was gonna write something else, but I don't wanna jinx anything - b/c my luck is just that good.

Ever wanted to be Dr. House? Now you can - b/c he's a video game:

Alas, I don't have any of those consoles, so I won't get to play anytime soon, but it still looks like fun! =)


ETA: I take that back, I do have a PC... now, just gotta find out if my crap-tastic graphics card will work with this game. *sigh*

I'll class this as a spoiler...

It's about House, M.D. S6 stuff. Nothing truly 'episode specific', but in case you're avoiding any and all tidbits about S6, I'll cut -

the grrr is under here )

Imma go see if I can figure out how to do a custom mood theme on DW now.

I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] house_md20in20 - make 20 icons in 20 days - and I picked Stacy (I love Stacy). There will be themes and things that the icons go with. 20 I think I can manage. Maybe I won't get bored halfway through like I would trying to do 100.

(I made a mood theme once and though 'never again' - b/c 150 little images is just too damned many.)


Now I just need a cheering section and someone to poke me every few days once this thing gets rolling to find out how many icons I've done of the 20.

Maybe I'll keep a running count. *eyes calendar* Sign-ups close on 9/30. Not sure when the themes are posted, but probably around then.

... premieres tomorrow night.

This is an excellent thing.

However, I won't get to actually see it until about midnight, b/c I have to work. This would be the only thing that really sucks about 2nd shift. :(

But, I have the VCR all set (no, I don't have TiVO and I can't afford it anyway) and I'll be able to skip all the commercials, which is cool.

Needless to say, I'll be avoiding DW/LJ/IJ/etc until AFTER I watch it.


Also - there are still prompts available HERE if people wanna toss more ideas at me. =)

It's a wallpaper. It's simple. It's, more or less, a photo-collage. It's all [personal profile] katernater's fault. XD

Using photos from what I call the 'green' photoshoot, it's Hugh Laurie, sporting his S6 hair, wearing a green polo and doing those 'Hugh' faces. Oh, and his hands (or, at least one or the other) are in each of the shots. There's a theme.

No preview, it's just here:

Hugh L in Green

So - things...

Thing 1: I have at least half a dozen Dreamwidth invite codes. Anyone out there still need/want one? PM me your e-mail addy and I'll send it to you.

Thing 2: House season 5 on DVD - 3 shops w/ 3 very different price points... watch this:

amazon.com: $26.99 (unless it's changed in the last 2 days)
Target: $37.99 (even w/ my $5.00 off House DVD coupon, STILL not beating amazon)
Best Buy: $34.99

So - looking like amazon's the winner. Though, I may swing by Target on Tuesday JUST to see what price they REALLY have on S5. I have all the others, so the coupon is really only good for S5, since it expires at the end of Sept. But, if not, seriously, Target - you fail.


Thing 3: [livejournal.com profile] roads_untaken - just sayin'. XD

... pretty much just like all my other posts.

1st - nephew update - he's fine. A smidge fearless now that he's sans stitches (which it took longer to get him in the chair so we could take them out than it did to actually remove them). So, yeah - fine.

2nd - DW OpenID commenting page thingy is a little wonky, so I'm re-enabling comments on LJ and IJ until that's cleared up. I like having all of my stuff all in one place, hence the collection of comments on DW, but I don't like ppl to have to hoop-jump to do it, so I can adjust. XD

3rd - re-watching House, M.D. starting with the pilot episode (though I may skip some here and there along the way) and I'll be working through season 5 in time for the season premiere in September. I don't think I'll be finished with seasons 1 - 4 by next Tuesday, but we'll see.

4th - watched the first 3 seasons of Heroes. It's all right. And, powers or not, Greg Grunberg is still the guy who kicked House in the balls.

5th - [livejournal.com profile] daniidebrabant and I started a new RPG on LJ ->

roads_untaken rpg image - x-crossed road signs


It's called [livejournal.com profile] roads_untaken and it's a pan-fandom alternate universe game. Stop by and check it out if it sounds like something of interest. XD

WTF? )

I wrote this for the [livejournal.com profile] otw_onlinecon's Hodge Podge Challenge. Somehow I made it to the entry before a lot of the prompts had been claimed.

So, I bring you: House, Wilson and fishing ->



“Why are we doing this again?”

“It's fun?” Wilson offered.

House scoffed, “Sitting on a dock, holding a pole, waiting for a water creature to be stupid enough to jump on the hook. Right.”

“It's relaxing,” Wilson tried again, watching the plastic bobber at the end of his line.

“My feet are wet, my back hurts and I'm getting a sunburn.”

“Put on sunscreen.”

“Don't like the smell.”

Wilson rolled his eyes. “You're hot, you're wet, you're bored, you're in pain and you refuse to attempt to prevent skin cancer. If you're so miserable, why are you here?”

“Free beer.”
