( Excerpt- 'everything has been figured out, except how to live. Pay attention, there's a test later...' )---
Speaking of happy-making things, I think I've babbled enough before about cleolinda's epic Twilight recaps, y/y? I always wished there was an equivalent for Harry Potter, more specifically, for the epic fail of Deathly Hallows. And what do you know, I just discovered it! Daniel Hemmens wrote a really funny and insightful critique of the series: part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4. Lots of intelligent analysis and giggle-inducing irritation at ridiculous things I hadn't even noticed before. [I was too busy being traumatized to pay such close attention]
Anyway, chapter one is called The Dark Lord Ascending although it should more properly be called "The Dark Lord Sitting In A Dining Room And Being A Bit Mean To The Malfoys But Basically Doing Nothing."
Fans of the series will of course be intimately familiar with scenes of Voldemort Doing Nothing. He's been at it for three books now. This chapter is particularly full of fine examples of the Dark Lord's sinister aptitude for inactivity.
In addition, because my life is always super amazing before everything goes to pieces, I found the Deathly Hallows Sporking Community. Win! Why on earth did I not search for this earlier?!
( Snippets of hilarious win )
I just about died laughing. I can almost forgive JKR for that immense suckitude just for the giggles I'm getting out of the sporkage now. *ponders* Actually, no, I still want to slap her for failing so hard. But I might be able to avoid kicking her while she's down. Might.
I mean, the woman has literally given me nightmares. I dreamt my parents were making me go camping for a few weeks. :O *iz aghast* Damn her and that Camping Trip from Hell, I swear, I was nearly sobbing when I woke up. 'But I can't leave civilization! Electricity! What about tv, what about my laptop? The INTERNET? How will I survive?!'
I’ve made the obvious Castle/Mentalist comparison before- straightlaced, tough-talking female cops teaming with roguishly charming and often infuriating, meddling civilian consultants. But when I watched Castle 2x13, I noticed a different similarity:

In general? Um...I admit, I fail at memorizing pithy quotes that I can trot out when appropriate, I so wish I was that kind of person. *sighs* Hmm, I think I'll go with Emily's quote from Minimal Loss, 'Reason is not automatic. Those who ignore it cannot be conquered by it...'
Oh, and Rossi's from Masterpiece: 'Let us consider that we are all insane. It will explain us to each other, it will unriddle many riddles...'
Plus, Hotch's from House on Fire: 'I have loved to the point of madness; that which is called madness, that which to me is the only sensible way to love...'
I really admire whoever it is on the CM staff that unearths these gems for each ep. ^_^
