IS SAD. I ranked equally as an expendable red shirt! *bursts into tears* I do like red, why must it be so strongly and positively correlated with expendable-ness? I guess Elizabeth and I are in the same basket, then. [I'm not ashamed to say I bought a red shirt just to be like her, I am that much of a geek]
PAUL MCGILLION WAS IN THE STAR TREK MOVIE?!
For all of three seconds, apparently. And I missed it. *woes*
I've been listening to the Kings of Leon track Closer [download here] on repeat the last few days. Fantastic moody song, but just sounding good isn't enough for me, I like to know the lyrics so I can a) sing along and b) ponder deep thoughts about the themes and metaphors and so forth.
I really hate it when bands don't include lyrics with their albums, I think that the amount of money they charge for a CD should cover the damn words to their songs. *frowns* There are a lot of conflicting verses on the internet and I can't figure out which one's right. Considering my family has been mocking me since my childhood for messing up the words to Macy Gray's Try ['I try to say goodbye...to my chook'. *facepalm* I love chickens, it didn't strike me as odd that someone would write a song to one! I was a kid, okay? Shut up!], you can understand why this might bother me. I am paranoid about being the butt of the joke, it's my mission in life to avoid this humiliating fate.
ANYWAY, I was really surprised when I found the popular opinion was that it's about vampires. I guess lines about running from the sun and bleeding people dry should've maybe given me a clue, but it's damn hard to figure out what the singer is saying, okay? I just love the horror movie theme and what a creepy vibe it has. *shudders delightedly*
Anyone read the Vampire Diaries books? Apparently there's talk it might be turned into a series. I haven't read it, so maybe I shouldn't judge but I am sick to death of stupid selfish teenage girls and their desperate attempts to hook vampire lovers and frakking mind-blowingly lame-ass love trianges. The show's been promoted with the premise of 'vampire brothers and their girlfriend'. Oh, whoop-de-frakking-do, how thrilling. A girl that can't choose between two vampires, this is the backbone of the show?! *gags*
If you want to read a great vampire series, try Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy. Original, exciting, and oh, look, the main relationship that's sustained over the three currently published books is the one between the heroine, Rose, and her best friend, Lissa. I just love that there is some female friendship being highlighted here, as well as romance and UST. For some reason, authors tend to treat snagging a boyfriend as the be-all-and-end-all in life, like having a close and loyal friend isn't important. Because all females care about are guys, y'know.
Bonus- there is actual plot in these books, small things like handling peer pressure and depression, and large-scale things like uncovering conspiracies and fighting bad vampires and all that jazz. Rose is a kick-ass chick, she has an actual personality [no bland, vapid Mary Sue is she] and many strengths as well as believable flaws to ground her in reality, plus? She is pretty damn funny. I was so into the books that when I found out I had to wait a few weeks for the library to get it in for me, I ended up going and paying for one! This is how awesome they are!
Leighton Meester, aka Blair of Gossip Girl, is launching her singing career. Oh, the excitement!
Featuring on Cobra Starship's new song, Good Girls Go Bad.
( Song and lyrics )
It's like an ode to Chuck Bass, zomg! Leighton talks about her upcoming album and GUYS, I am seriously psyched for this. The only thing better would be her and Ed Westwick doing a duet together! Can we have a musical episode of Gossip Girl, pretty please?!
Meme, snurched from...heck, it's been on everyone's journals lately, but I think from sunkrux .
