I've been reading all the lovely wank at F_W about gay Dumbledore, and while reading the Fark thread I found reference to the Potter Puppet Pals 'Naked Time!'
I AM EVEN MORE GLAD THAT I OWN THAT SHIRT, NOW!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
I stayed home from work today, because I'm bad, and because I stayed up until, like, 3:30 or 4 last night. So I'm siting here trying to get Court-Records.net to load so I can try to participate in the 'Win a Godot Mug' contest thing they have going on because OMFUCKINGG Trials and Tribulations comes out tomorrow and I'm gonna cry when I finish it I just know it WTH!!!
Oh, and I wrote a Phoenix/Miles drabble, and am about to write another one soon, and will be posting both, along with maybe making an intro post at dramadramaduck
tonight. I'm wasting my day home on fandom stuff, yay!
DUMBLEDORE IS GAY.
I am exceedingly happy, and I laugh heartily at the people who are going 'But this is just a cop-out, she just said it after the fact because she didn't want people to call her a homophobe cause she had no gay characters!'
Dude, DH had so many clues that there was more to his relationship with GG, not to mention Elphias Doge's doting over his memory seemed a bit blinded-by-love-my-sweetheart-was-PERFEC
T. Even if you didn't pick up on it before, looking back at it with that knowledge it is pretty obvious that that's what she intended at the time she was writing it. And how awesome it is that she didn't just shove something awkwardly into the canon because she felt she had to 'represent'. Yes, their relationship WAS a pivotal part of what made Dumbledore who he was, but the books are told from Harry's perspective. Harry has proven himself fucking BLIND when it comes to noticing relationships right under his nose - why in the hell would he have picked up anything on a relationship from decades prior that Dumbledore seemed ashamed of and hurt by anyway? And the most important parts of the relationship, that it WAS vitally important to him, did come across, so the story didn't really suffer or lessen because of its absence.
Okay, there are a million things I could say about this, but there's my two cents. [gets down off soapbox]
Spoilers in all of these links! I unfortunately don't have the time to go over my thoughts just yet (Ace of Cakes is calling me, evil show. ;_;) but almost everything I was thinking about Deathly Hallows is said by Beth in THIS
Found some interviews that are following up with J.K. after the release, and they give more info about what happened to a lot of the characters, including jobs and such. Apparently Rowling's planning on eventually releasing an encyclopedia with backstories and future stories, which makes me exceedingly happy. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19935372/
And this link is for anyone who wants a 'Movies in Fifteen Minutes'-type rendition of the entire novel, or who doesn't care about reading the whole thing and just wants to see what all happened so they can enjoy the explosion of wank that is, I'm sure, still spreading through the internets. It's funny as hell. :D http://diogenes-sinope.blogspot.com/2007/07/potterdammerung-mega-spoilers.html
This icon seems almost prophetic now. XD
I'm home with my copy of Harry Potter, and I only had to wait in line a total of two hours! :D (One this morning to get my wristband for the first group, and one waiting for the book.) I also got the poster and the glow-in-the-dark 'wand', and bought myself a copy of "Stardust: The Visual Companion." Now I must read, read, READ. I'm not going online until I've completed it, and then I plan to revel in some major wank, so I might see you guys sometime tomorrow. XD I've been awake since 5 am yesterday morning, and I'm going to try to not sleep until I've at least made some headway on this bloody book, I WILL BE DEAD TOMORROW YAY.
I just finished reading the first chapter of Crooked Little Vein, Warren Ellis's first novel, which is coming out next week. It's glorious and extremely bizarre and unlike anything I think I've ever read before. I'm not sure whether I'm in love with it yet, but I think I may be before the end.
I'm going to be a zombie tomorrow. :D I need to go to bed at, oh, about 9 pm, so that I can go to work at 6:30 am, work until 9 am, go to Borders to get a wristband to hold my place in line, go back to work and work the rest of my shift (I love my sup and that he's letting me do that!) then once Bridgie's off work it's off to pick up Manda and Bryan and get back to Borders for the Ball! SO EXCITED. I'll have to post my predictions later tonight, garg, gotta go! [bamf!]
Oh Optimus, you so crazy!
Bridgie's on the phone with her mom and Capital One trying to fix an unauthorized payment, muy fun. We're supposed to go out to Chili's when she's done, but who knows how long that will take, especially considering she's on hold. ;_; So I'll just ramble on here instead.
Bridgie's supervisor (or rather, former supervisor, they switched sups when her schedule changed) was walking by while I was bugging Bridgie before I went home; she went 'Aaaaw, Sirius and Remus!' when she saw the Chibi Padfoot and Moony on my messenger bag, and we spent fifteen minutes squeeing over Harry Potter, and going on and on about how we'll cry at the end of this movie, and how we're going to the book release party. We're going to the SAME Borders, so we'll probably end up seeing each other, yay! CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT!!!!crzydemona
posted clips today of Dan Radcliffe on Jay Leno. It was beautiful, but I only got to see the first half because NBC pulled it. Anyway, Dan is SO FREAKING ADORABLE. Seems like he'd be a fun person to hang around, too; I about died when they started talking about partying and he was saying that wasn't really his thing. So cute. He also said Rupert Grint made the most awesome purchase ever; AN ICE CREAM TRUCK. Now there's a guy who knows how to enjoy his money.
I'ma go get some Harry Potter 'the end is nigh'-type icons. I always tried to use my own icons, but now that I have so damn many, I don't mind yoinking some of the really good ones I see. :D
asked for some movie recs I (of course) had to dig through my memory and come up with some of the weirdest and most wonderful stuff I can remember watching. But how hard I had to dig made me think, hm, I should be writing this shite down. So I've spent the past 45 minutes or so filling out movies I've seen on a movie catalog program I downloaded ages ago and never bothered to figure out. I might post my recs later (behind an LJ cut of course because dude, there's probably gonna be at least a couple hundred titles on there.)
Anyway, while doing this I'm going through IMDB to fill out the 'URL' section of the catalog, and finding some wonderful things! Kevin Smith has two greenlit movies listing right now, Red State (a horror movie about some kids running across extreme fundamentalism) and Zack and Miri Make a Porno (about two guys who start up an amateur porn studio.) YAY more Kevin Smith! There's also a TV show that he apparently did in conjunction with MTV, which is available for watching on mtvu.com
called 'Sucks Less With Kevin Smith.' YAY Kevin Smith being himself! Now I wanna watch all 6 episodes and finish it up with 'Evening With Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder'.
Also showing as in pre-production on IMDB, a new Miyazaki movie. OMGWHEEEEEEEEE!!!! It says it's going to be out in Japan in '08, and will be about a boy who falls in love with a goldfish princess who wants to be human. Happiness.
HARRY POTTER ORDER OF THE PHOENIX NEXT WEEKEND HO SHIT!!! And we need to see Ratatouille and Transformers within the next week or two, and I want to see Live Free or Die Hard and 1408, and Stardust should be out next month and GARG so many good movies!!
I should be taking this time to do a new LJ layout or icons. Oh well.
