IT'S BEEN NOTHING BUT MUSIC, REAL LIFE, PHOTOS OF RL & A LITTLE FEMINISM AS A SIDE DISH  
I am so not writing about fandom any more, it's sad! Really sad, I'm actually appalled by myself. This needs to change and I intend to start that change tomorrow, but for now a short round up of what I've blogged about in the past three months.... (WOW, so little. Damn!!) I also really need to write about Final Fantasy: The Four Heroes of Light, because it is JUST TOO CUTE and has crowns. Crowns ♥!

STARTING WITH SOME MUSIC )
I played a bit Odin Sphere, and did not just use Gwendolyn to amuse myself - which I did last weekend at home ♥!! - but actually got further into Velvet's story. I actually defeated Wagner at the second attempt - which greatly surprised me because I am crap with Velvet - and the story bits made me appreciate her a bit more. It's not that she or her story are boring, I guess it is just that she did not intrigue me much when I saw her during the other's storylines and her own - while being pretty interesting and shedding light upon some things - is just not as compelling as the other ones were. What's pretty funny is that the chapter I played today also involved Gwendolyn and I ended up loving and pretty much adoring my favourite character of the game even more and while the chapter brought me closer to Velvet, too, Gwen just got infinitely more wonderful and tragic!



A friend and me had a huge and total fit of laughter!

DIE MINISTERIN SCHRÖDER RECHNET MIT DEM FEMINISMUS AB und DER MÄDCHENBLOG ANTWORTET.

Where the link to this comic comes from, I forgot but it is so SAD BUT TRUE you have to have a look at IN WHICH WE BETRAY OUR GENDER.

ETA:
ALICE SCHWARZER MELDET SICH ZU WORT und auch DER MÄDCHENBLOG GIBT NOCHMAL EINE ÜBERSICHT UND EIN KOPFSCHÜTTEL ZU DEM THEMA.

BEING ERICA: FINAL EPISODE

(no spoilers, so no worries)
It was PERFECT. I am truly sad that it was the final episode, but IMHO the series did everything right and it was the perfect ending for a great television series. I'm sad to have to live without Erica Strange now, but as Dr. Tom would say: "In the face of difficulty lies opportunity."

TOTAL ROUND UP  
Dear The Big Bang Theory,
Ever since Penny and Leonard became a couple for real, you lost charm and wit.
I'm sorry.
n.

PS:And yeah I can see Penny/Sheldon because theirs is the most interesting relationship on the show. Take this!
(Sometimes Sheldon is so cute I want to eat him. And sometimes he's so unnerving I could kill him. I seem to be into that kind of characters a lot these days, concerning my love for Christopher Chant or Tony Stark. Both insufferable prats. ♥!)

Grey's Anatomy
I have been rambling on twitter about GA, so if you want quotes and more specific mini-rants go there. Only a some short facts about my lovelies.

Meredith Love her. Always have, always will. (I love that they focus on other characters a lot these days, but I want some interesting shit to happen to Meredith again soon.)
Christina Same here, but I hate Hunt and I hate her and Hunt together.
Callie & Arizona THE WORST HAPPENED. THE FUCKING WORST AND I WAS SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY FOR THEM...

I am currently looking through the answers of Read it's blogroll where s/he asked for 10 books that are a must read and I'm finding the answers quite interesting. I also really like that a lot of people put in Lycidas by Christoph Marzi. I haven't finished the series yet, but I quite like his style. Sometimes it's a bit too much, but I very much like his ideas and characters. And also how he puts things :)

[personal profile] bookshop wrote about Cult of Awesomeness surrounding decent males in our society not long ago. (You can see that since I added her, I am reading all of her meta.) And even though I knew some of the examples she gives before, reading the entry itself and the articles she links to makes me sick and despise all humanity.
But only in a way, because I know there are lots of great people out there too. Like [personal profile] bookshop herself, many people from [community profile] metafandom and last but not at all least YOU and YOU.

This kinda made me gag and I really want to read the articles bookshop linked to.

A lighthearted and funny attempt on a similar topic by Felicia Day (and another reason to be totally awed by her ;D)

The last Bones episode I have seen was called "THE WITCH IN THE WARDROBE". I adore the show, I really really do. The show is hilarious, does not take itself too seriesly (;D) and has so much charm and lots of ♥!

I WANT MY FAVOURITE COUPLE IN The Good Wife TO BE 'FOR REAL' ;^; (1x20)

Iron-Man-Double-Feature: [5th of May]
(Minor Spoilers, but not really for the plot)
There is not much to say about Iron Man except that it was awesome, but you know that already, right? Iron Man 2 is a different topic, sadly. First of all it was not a bad movie. There were some plotlines I enjoyed and some I didn't. Tony was sometimes very awesome and sometimes so very annoying, but overall I liked him very much. And Robert Downey Jr. is just so easy on the eyes that you it's virtually impossible todislike him for extended periods of time ;D
I didn't like the 'replacement actor' of Rhodey nor did I like his storyline very much. Hammer was annoying and downright stupid, but I laughed about him a lot. He was needed for the storyline with Vanko, but I think it was a bit too much and they could have done that a lot better and without Hammer. I loved Vanko's accent and laughed a lot. (And even though the plot was not that thick, thrilling or new, I liked Mickey Rourke as Vanko.) Scarlett Johannson was easy on the eyes, but they could have given her a bit more depth. Her role was small and her fighting was impressive but still unimpressive. Too constructed. (She was only able to take on one guy at a time and that in such an artistic manner that it seemed more constructed than creative.) Pepper Potts was the ever-worrying hero girlfriend we were used to. She too could have gotten a bit more depth, but it didn't hurt that she hadn't because we've known here from the first movie...
Overall I liked Iron Man 2 but it is NOWHERE near as great as the first movie.
A small gimmick that I loved but didn't recognize in the movie was Captain America's shield. At the time I knew it was something important and funny from some Marvel hero (and that Shield agents surprised: Do you know what that is? was pretty much a strong hint and the scene was pretty funny.), but I didn't recognize it until I had a look the wikipedia entry on Captain America today. What I also liked and look forward to is the little trailer they put at the end of the credits showing a digging site, where a hammer is found. Again I could not place the hammer (except that yeah, it was something that belonged to some Marvel hero) but after looking it up I know it to be Thor's hammer. I also know now that Kenneth Brannagh is directing a Thor movie at the moment and that there are in fact comics about a superhero named Thor. I am intrigued and I guess I'll download those comics after seeing the movie at the latest ;D
Oh and the Iron Man 2 soundtrack was really great, but that didn't come as a surprise since the first one was already really good.


Dev Patel as Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender


Looks great!
I don't know if I am going to watch the movie. The 'racefail' is pretty awful on the one hand and on the other - and this is not about politics and rather selfish and superficial - I just don't think I will like it as much as like the cartoon. I won't say it can't be a good movie, but at the moment I just don't feel like watching it. Furthermore the more I think about it the more I come to the conclusion that I don't want to pay anything for a movie that ignores the fact that - shock! gasp! OMFG! - there are no white kids in Avatar, so I guess I won't watch it regardless of how good it might be despite the 'racebending'. So I guess I won't watch it...
Anyway th picture above greeted me today when I went to look something up at IMDB and I liked it very, very much :D

And because I am not eloquent and also not that well-versed on the topic I'll link you to CHAOSBUNNY'S THE LAST AIRBENDER BOYCOTT VIDEO. (Side note: OMG HOW OLD IS SHE?! I am jealous, because I am not half as eloquent and mature, - wow - as she is but surely a houndred years older.)

SNEAKY MISTER ANTHONY HAS ACTUALLY WRITTEN ANOTHER BOOK USING A PEN NAME!! ISN'T IT GRAND? Well maybe this is an old hat for you, but I am certainly very excited and will try to get my hands on it soon. (Which will be in ten years, because the unread books on m shelf are staring at me accusingly and I would like to read some books from there before aquiring new ones...) Maybe I'll buy it anyway. It certainly falls under the same category as the Sook: Need it because it's the Sook/Chrestomanci/..../Mark Anthony.
I definitely need a reading list for bookblogs and... oh yeah some interesting bookblogs to read ;D

And to show you my newest musical obsession (obtained through yet another great Grey's Anatomy episode, the show has a way with music ♥):



I've been listening to it since three hours or so, that song is pure addiction!

&&& my other musical obssession (I blame you, Y!)

YET ANOTHER ROUND UP OF MY FANDOMISH RANTS AND DESIRES  
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kandismon I discovered the BEAUTIFUL SEIYA/USAGI (AND IN GENERAL BSSMI FANARTS OF YOUKAI YUME and found out THAT THERE IS AN SEIYA/USAGI FANART GROUP ON DW! YESSYESSYESS!! One day I would like to write a SHIP MANIFESTO about them. They are one of my first OTPs after all ♥!

Fullmetal Alchemist X Suikoden 1
OH. MY. GAWD. ♥
(And it's my favourite ending to boot!)




MADE MY MORNING!! I adore Billie Piper, her face, her smile, her hair... ♥! I found the video extremely funny and have I mentioned the gorgeouse Billie Piper already, you know she's....
(via [personal profile] lir)



And the grass it was a ticking
And the sun was on the rise
I never felt so wicked
As when I willed our love to die

And I was your silver lining
As the story goes
I was your silver lining
But now I’m gold


I am very much in love with Rilo Kiley/. I only discovered them as a band a few days ago, but I had a fierce catchy tune of Breaking Up when I worked at H&M. They played it all the time and you just HAD to sing along. (Quietly ;D)

From Yesterday:
RECEIVED THE CUTEST LETTER ON THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LETTER PAPER EVER ♥

THANK YOU SO MUCH, [personal profile] lir

HAPPY 'DEAD IN THE FAMILY'-DAY ;D

They sent my book today and I can't wait for it to arrive...
ARRIVED today & I AM DELIRIOUSLY HAPPY ♥

TRACKING TREASURE DOWN  
I was able to make lots of feeds. While I created feeds for the blogs of my friends, I also created them for some other blogs I like to read occasionally. (And now I will follow them properly, yay.)
Maybe some are of interest to you.

animationblog_feed: http://animationblog.wordpress.com/
German "Zeichentrick News", interesting and informative :)

animeblog_feed: http://animeblog.wordpress.com/
This one is German too: "Eben Kritisch. Zynisch. Anime." say the author about the blog and I really like it. Funny and to the point.

thatanimeblog_feed: http://www.thatanimeblog.com/
English this time ;D My favourite anime blog. Love them ♥! They have a long and great blogroll, too, so have a look at that too.

Maybe I'll make some more, I have to look through all the blogs I read from time to time first...

'FANCY BEING ABLE TO LAUGH AT SOMETHING IN FRENCH'  
Last Friday I fell in love. Hard and fast and once again with a boy. When it comes to fiction it seems that I succumb to charming young lads extremely easy. (Genius, Edmund, Briar, Takeru,...) Cat Chant was able to make me love him in a matter of seconds and "Charmed Life" is a truly wonderful book, I enjoyed it very much.

I was keen to read Dianna Wynne Jones Chronicles of the Chrestomanci because I love [livejournal.com profile] halcyonjazz's fanarts. (I enjoyed Chrestomanci's clothes as much in the book as I do in the fanarts. He is such a fashion victimfancy dresser.)

And since I got permission from [livejournal.com profile] halcyonjazz to use this beautiful fanart to make icons, I might as well share them with you.





(If you use one of them, please credit [livejournal.com profile] halcyonjazz as the artist!)

FANFICTION & FANDOM DILEMMA:
It is certainly not a good idea to search at fanfiction.net for fanfiction, because even though there are many well-written pieces there's twice as much crap. Still what do you do when you crave Digimon in the middle of the night?

Why is the fandom dead? Scratch that, but why are there so few fanfictions? Good ones? And finished ones? And I am not even talking about good Daisuke/Takeru fic, there simply isn't any, but Taichi/Yamato...? DARN.

I FELL IN LOVE WITH KATY PERRY AT LAST:





Especially the song with Timbaland has been running through my for days now... ♥

I'll never be the same if we ever meet again,
Won't let you get away if we ever meet again,
This freefall's got me sold kiss me all night don't ever let me go,
Ill never be the same if we ever meet again

If we ever meet again,
I'll have so much more to say,
If we ever meet again,
I won't let you go away

BEST BELATED BIRTHDAY GIFT!  
(Daddy visited me last Tuesday - because he was in the area ♥ - and we bought Fallout 3 , the newest installment of Prince of Persia and MGS thanks to the Game Stop gift certificate I got from my friends at home. ♥!)

Last Saturday I also received a great birthday gift from my friends around here ♥



Legends of the Final Frontier Collection


It even sounds shiny, right? Ah, I was - still am - so surprised and happy and oh the glory! Perfect present for a geek girl like me. (And haha, now I have the best excuse to force them to watch Star Trek with me, right?)

I LOVE TO LOVE: NOT ONLY THE INTERNET'S FOR PORN NOWADAYS  
Without much ado these two games give you the opportunity to have gay sex. How neat is that? :)
Thanks Bioware for including it without a fuss ♥
(But OH I WANT WANK! The comments on youtube are wonderful and stupid enough, but good wank always makes my day ♥ Best comment on youtube (to the Dragon Age video): "now if only they had had this in Twilight Princess".)

Mass Effect:Lila and Femshepard Romance

First of all isn't Femshepard the most hilarious word EVER? Strange but funny compound.
The scene is nice too, although the version of Shepard is a bit ugly. I like Lila and one day when I am actually playing the game myself, I'll give her a prettier Shepard :D

Dragon Age: Sex with Zevran

Haha, he IS funny! Give him some boots and he'll give you pleasure in exchange. Not too bad a deal, is it? I like it. Although I still need to get used to his accent (Spanish elves? What are the French, dwarfs? That would be funny, but they countries in DA might as well be mixed race countries, I have no clue.)
Is the PS3 version of the game any good?* Or shall I wait for the day I'll finally have an XBox360 to play Dragon Age.
* If it's good I know what daddy's (AND MY!) christmas present will look like...

OH LOOK IT'S A CID. (AND WHAT A SHINY CID IT IS.)

Following [personal profile] halcyonjazz's thought: If you can determine the quality of a Final Fantasy on the 'quality' of it's Cid... OH BLISS! OH JOY! ;D
(For this one I'd rather measure the quality of the game on Lightning, Hope (oh boy, Larsa syndrome!) and, of course, the Eidolon. Alexander, Odin and Bahamut are stunning and I've always been in love with the Esper/Bestia/Guardian Forces/Summoned Beasts/...)

"& that was the third time I died."
UNSKIPPABLE: WATCH! WATCH! WATCH!

Utterly in love with those guys ♥!

Something else entirely:
Voluptuous & sexy Gemma Arterton
Thanks for not being a skinny bitch and still looking this good ♥

Very related to that:
Prince of Persia Movie Trailer
HER VOICE & HER PRETTY ♥! But it's not only that ;) The action looks good, the costumes are neat, the special effects seem solid and the setting as well and while I am not enjoying the looks of the Prince to much, I really enjoy the bad guy's... Oh and the music's epic too, what's more to love? Looks like a movie I'll enjoy!
(I also want the newest PoP game like NOW...)
