Thanks to lionille for the heads-up, seems that LJ is sweeping up inactive accounts and as it's been a while since anything was said on this thing, HERE IS A THING!

RECS: TEXTS FROM OZ - one of kseda's awesome projects. I adore it and it makes me giggle endlessly.
Planetarium Hill (part 1) by Lionille. I know this is made of awesome and I cannot wait to read the whole thing when it's posted!!!!
And finally, THE GRILLED CHEESE ACADEMY - Because. Grilled cheese.

Why David Hewlett and Robert Picardo can't stop laughing

If only because this line in the article: "...and what might happen if they got married to each other."

So, we're watching the Toy Story movies on ABC Family tonight (nothing else on), and I keep seeing previews for a new show on ABC (or possibly ABC family, it's not clear) starting in October. I noticed something in all the previews that looked very, very familiar.

Check out the preview video on this website and tell me if you're seeing what I"m seeing - the black clad, black haired sword fighting figure approx. 1:35 in.


Is there something about his head that is familiar?
I was playing around on iTunes and found 5 podcast episodes of the Making of Tin Man that can be downloaded free. Which of course I'm doing. *grin* Of course, they're probably the same ones that were on the DVD set. But hey - they're free and they're on my computer. Insta-Tin Man love!

So, today was one of the incredibly-hard-to-get-tickets-for concerts put on by our radio station - the KROQ Weenie Roast (an annual event). This is the first year we've been able to snag tickets and oh, holy HELL was it WORTH IT.

For a mere $45 per ticket, the two of us saw these scheduled bands: Face to Face, A Day To Remember, Cage the Elephant, Bad Religion, The Strokes, Rise Against, and Linkin Park.

That alone was *insanely* worth the cost. Duh. (The last five are among my all-time favorite bands). There were several smaller bands playing on a secondary stage earlier in the day but we didn't go see them.

So, you'd think that those bands would be enough? Apparently not. Because Rise Against ended at 9 and Linkin Park wasn't scheduled until 9:30. So, we're thinking, a little intermission? We turn to head to a different section (we were on the lawn seating, no assigned seats). Then we hear this very familiar thumping coming from the dark stage. I looked at Anndie and said, "That's not Linkin Park." We both squinted and screamed something obscene.


Yeah. So, Foo Fighters were a surprise guest and played for over an hour. It was beyond amazing. Because seriously? FOO FIGHTERS.

So, our TV died this morning. Like, it was working last night and this morning, it wouldn't stay on for more than 2 seconds (literally) and the screen never even came on. We tried everything - unplugging, holding buttons down...but since the thing wouldn't stay on long enough to do anything and nothing came on the screen, there was no way for us to experiment with resetting anything. NO idea - the thing died. All several hundred pounds of it (UGH). The monstrous beast is now sitting on our floor, taking up ten square feet of space and with any luck we will get someone strong to get it out of our living room - the two of us can't even lift it TOGETHER. (It's just a 32" screen but it's the old fat kind, about 4 years old.)

ANYWAY. In comes our new SHINY. After work we headed to the nearest place that Anndie found what we were looking for with the best price (as we are cheap) and lo, we have a new Visio 32" flat panel TV. Is gonna take a bit of adjusting our eyes to the new screen, but OMG it is THIN and weighs 20 pounds. SO much easier to move and it's awesome.

\o/ Now to pull out the Tin Man dvds and do the annual re-watch (as I just watched Wizard of OZ over the weekend). Whoot!

So, I heard this today via Joe Flanigan's twitter:

"JoeFlanigan: Neal McDonough fired from ABC series 4 refusing to do sex scenes. He's a great actor and an acquaintance. Good 4 him 2 stick with principles"

Here's one of the many news stories that came out with the announcement, though there are plenty more to check out if you do a search: http://www.deadline.com/2010/03/no-sex-please-im-neal-mcdonough/

I'm also pleased to see Joe, and no doubt many more fellow actors, showing support for Neal's decision.
Realized I haven't posted anything in a while. Been busy - end of school year, concert season like crazy, working on having a job for next year, excited to have my anthropology class to teach again this summer.

But instead of sharing anything of real life interest, I feel the need to share this because it made me LOL. I'm watching an episode of "Anthony Bourdain No Reservations," the "Sweden" episode. He is having a discussion about skiing with a couple of 20-something guys, pro-skiers, in a restaurant. After saying his style is more the "American Faceplant," they follow up with this:

Tony: "What's the worst that can happen?"
Skier: "Yard sale."
Tony: "Yard sale?"
Skier: "Yeah - stuff everywhere! [demonstrates with arms flung out dramatically] Hats, gloves, skiis, boots, all over the place."

*still giggling*
I know, we never mentioned it before this but we're spending this week in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Being fangirls, stalking hanging out with actors we know, touring filming locations around the area from various things, etc. GOOD EFFING TIMES LIKE WHOA.

Yeah, I know, that's weak. But I'm lacking of the brain power. As I, the Surreal half of this journal, am in reality Irish, I feel it is my duty to post something on this day. So, this is what I've got.

Tucked behind a cut 'cause people clearly don't care. :P )

Considering the little LJ thing says we haven't updated in 4 weeks, I suppose I should say something so everyone knows we're still alive. *grin* We're all good - just keeping busy with work and being social and such. The usual.

On the writing front, things are picking up. The one story I'd started and stopped because I didn't know where to go with it has evolved, hopefully for the better. It has joined forces with a second story I'd plotted out but hadn't started yet, but am doing so now as the two transition into one larger, more involved story. It shall either be epic, or a massive failure of cliche and nonsense. We shall have to see.

*rubs hands gleefully and adds another thousand words*

We went and saw Alan Cumming tonight.

He is everything that is adorable in all the world crammed into a teeny, tiny little Scottish man and I adore him. He tells the best stories and is stunning to watch performing music live.

*flail and squee*
Not that anyone cares - but I did go back and finish posting the Wizard of OZ macros. They can be found here.

Go, have a laugh and superimpose the Tin Man characters in them. It's fun.

So, has anyone else seen the trailers for "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and automatically thought, "THAT IS AMBROSE/GLITCH?"

Seriously. He's a misunderstood inventor who only wants to create machines for the good of humanity. Until one of his inventions threatens to destroy the world.

Then there's the hair.

So, the two of us are going with some friends to kayak in the ocean off La Jolla beach (near San Diego).

Assuming we don't get eaten by sharks (yeah, not kidding, apparently) or by the aggressive, carnivorous jumbo squid that have come into the area...be back this evening! :D

ETA: Back. Didn't die. Surr capsized her kayak and went for an unplanned swim with the bat rays waaaaaaay out in the ocean. Also saw some pelicans (they're HUGE!). Discovered that next time some motion sickness drugs might be a good idea (those waaaaaaves...*uuuuuugh*).

But didn't die. \o/
