30 Rock: TONIGHT!!
Tribute Concert to Stephen Schwartz: TOMORROW!!!!!!
Whenever I get to see Avatar: Maybe tomorrow, probably two days from now... :/
Heroes: 4 days!!
The Return of House: 5 days!!
I. have. the. world's. crappiest. and. slowest. and. just. generally. worst. internet. ever. GAH!!!
On the bright side, I have the Stephen Schwartz concert tomorrow (SQUEE!!!) and as soon as I get to see Avatar, there will be a SHIRTLESS ZUKO!!!! You will want to keep 50 feet away from me as I'm fangirling. Or at least 10 feet, because I assure you, you're not going to want to be in the middle of that. XD
So, since I don't really have anything else to talk about today, I'm finally going to post my cosplay pics from _loudnproud_and my party of two!! XD Just in case you can't tell, I'm supposed to be Mai, and _loudnproud_is Jun.
30 Rock: Tomorrow!!
Tribute concert for Stephen Schwartz: TWO DAYS!!!
Whenever I finally get to see Avatar: Three days... I think. Maybe less if I can get it earlier, but I am definately seeing it on Saturday no matter what.
Heroes: 5 days!!
The Return of House: 6 days!!
So I had the pleasure of taking the PSAT's today. It was wierd... I usually do really well in Math, and totally screw up anything having to do with English on these kinds of things. Today though I did really well in English, answering every question with time to spare on each English section so I got to doodle in the margins of the test booklet, but I died in Math, not getting the chance to answer 3 questions in both Math sections. Ugh... and then because the test went on for so long, and we have ridiculously early lunch periods, I missed 20 minutes of lunch. But then, last period, I had a U.S. HISTORY TEST!!! And on top of that, the U.S. test was so long I had to stay for a little while after school was over to finish it, which meant that I missed my school bus and had to take the subway home. Fun. And now I get to babysit two little kids (aged 5 and 8 ish?), although that actually shouldn't be too bad, I start at 7 and they go to bed at 8, so then I just watch TV until 10 when their mother comes home. Still though, it's just the whole mentality.
Oh, and I'll post my extrordinarily late cosplay pics up tomorrow, I just want to Photoshop them some so they don't look really bad...
My PSATs: tomorrow *gleep*
30 Rock: 2 days!!
Tribute to Stephen Schwartz Concert: 3 DAYS!!!
Avatar the Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 5 (which I conveniently don't know the title to, but has Zuko shirtless, which makes anything and everything awesome): Technically 3 days, but 4 for me, since the Stephen Schwartz concert is on Friday, but still, awesome!!!
Heroes: 6 days!!
The Return of House: One week!!
So I return to Livejournal!! I'm sure you're all thrilled. XD I'm sorry I was gone for so long, but I have the World's Crappiest Internet. It literally didn't connect at all all weekend, and yesterday I was just trying to catch up on my fpage. I didn't even catch up all the way...
Anywho, onto other news, _loudnproud_, you are awesome. The fanmix is fantastic, and YOU PUT EMO KID ON THE CD TOO!!! XD You are so officially awesome to me, it's... awesome. XD
So, news of this weekend:
I went to go see Elizabeth: The Golden Age with nature_gurl, which was alright. It probably would have been better as a movie if you had rented the DVD, or at least it will be better like that when the DVD comes out. Basically, the movie was fine, and Cate Blanchett is one of my goddesses of acting
Not much happened, I did my homework and all that kind of stuff, but one awesome thing did happen: I got an awesome, shiny, new cell phone!! Really, I got the Verizon EnV, and it's awesome and I love it and it's fantastic. I'll probably actually post a pic
Well, Mondays generally suck, but Heroes was yesterday so:
OMG I miss my House!! Really, why aren't they showing the episode this week? I asked my parents, but got a complete non-answer from them so...
Okay, PSATs tomorrow... it doesn't actually matter, since it doesn't actually mean anything, but I still have to do really well. There's this National Merit Scholarship thing, and they only accept people to be even semi-finalists for it if they are in the 98th percentile of the PSATs or above, and now it turns out that BOTH MY PARENTS WERE SEMI-FINALISTS WHEN THEY TOOK IT, which means that now I have to be too. They say that it's okay if I'm not, and that it's not mandatory or whatever, but then they also said that they know I can be one if I really want to be, which in English means I have to be at least a semi-finalist for it. GAH. But why be sad? The PSATs mean that I miss most of my classes tomorrow, so... um.... I miss most of my classes tomorrow!!
The last thing, I promise: I've decided to start making things for my kinda-newly formed deviantart account, but I'm not sure what I want to draw... I'm thinking I'll do the Zuko/honor comic (you know which one I'm talking about _loudnproud_), but if you guys have any requests, so long as they're not shipping Zuko with anyone, I'll attempt to do it! XD
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 4 Sokka's Master: TONIGHT!!!
Movies with nature_gurl: Tomorrow!!
Heroes: 3 days!!
House: 4 days!!
30 Rock: 5 days!!
Tribute to Stephen Schwartz: 7 days!!
My friends are so annoying... we had two whole class periods to work on a project that we were doing together, and what it is is that we have to make part of a newspaper on a certain topic during the Antebellum period of U.S. History (about 1800-1860), and so we're doing the role of women. Anywho, during those class periods, I was working on my part of our project- the political cartoon, and I was carefully drawing and writing and everything, and they were using the computers to go on Facebook.
And on a completely unrelated note, I
Yeah, that's really basically it for now... and now I really have to go get our foodstuffs... XD
Gotham Kids 'n' Comedy Workshop: Tomorrow!!
Yankees vs. Indians Playoff game: Also tomorrow!! (YEAH YANKEES!!!)
Heroes: 2 days
House: 3 days
30 Rock: 5 days
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 4 (seriously peoples, does anyone know the name of next week's episode??): 6 days
So as I suppose you can guess, I was just watching Gone With The Wind. It's absolutely gorgeous, and Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara is amazing...
Not all that much happened today, but it was still a pretty awesome day. We (my family and I) went into midtown, and we got tickets for this tribute to Stephen Schwartz concert, which should be awesome!!
Then, we went to the Museum of Television and Radio (technically it has this new name, it's supposed to be named after someone who bought it, or at least contributed a frillion dollars, but I don't really care...) and we saw a little bit of a documentary of the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, and I got this very awesome Star Trek: TNG poster, which makes me happy. XD
Lastly, we went to the Broadway Comedy club to see this improv thing, which was absolutely amazing... the comedians there were fantastic, they thought so fast, and they were so good and everything... I was blown away. Now I'm trying to decide if I was discouraged by that, feeling like I'll never be that good, or if I was encouraged, and they've given me an aspiration to be as good as them.... I actually, honestly don't know.
Gotham Kids 'n' Comedy Workshop: 2 days!! XD
Yankees vs. Indians playoff game: 2 days!! LET'S GO YANKEES LET'S GO!!! *clap clap clap*
No School Because of Columbus Day: 3 days!!!
Heroes: 3 days!!
House: 4 days!!
30 Rock: 6 days!!
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 4: A week... :)
Yes, I have had the brilliant idea to, are you ready for this?, put non-TV related things on my countdowns!! *"El gasp!
And I feel like a total idiot, but I actually don't know the title to next week's episode of Avatar... someone help me? *hides under a rock in shame*
And I'm so happy I'm finally over my cold, so I could go catch another one screaming and fangirling over Avatar!!
Okay, I have a zillion fandoms to do, but I'm going to hold off on one of them until I finish it... there's 30 Rock which was yesterday, Avatar, and the fourth book in the Uglies Trilogy- Extras. Clearly, I'm waiting until I finish Extras. But to everyone out there, the whole series is absolutely fantastic, and if you get the chance, and you haven't already, you have to read it. XD
Now, onto the fangirlery!!
30 Rock: TOMORROWSQUEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar the Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 3 The Painted Lady: 2 DAYSTHANKGODISONEEDIT...
Heroes: 5 days
House: 6 days
So non-TV spoilery stuff first:
Not entirely over my cold yet, I still have a sore throat and everything... honestly today I was just well enough to go to school, so I completely crashed in last period American History. I nearly fell asleep and everything...
Also, my icons are up over at avatar_fans!! Here's the link for all you lovely people: http://community.livejournal.com/
I am such a Narcissus... and I know I probably spelt his name wrong.
Lastly, I was thinking of making a fanmix, but I don't have a particular focus yet... suggestions? It would probably be an Avatar fanmix, because Avatar screenshots are usually easier to photoshop for the cover, but I don't know. Any ideas are welcome, and will be credited!! XD
And now... what you've all been waiting for... Heroes and House
Heroes: TONIGHT!! YAY!!!
House: TOMORROW!!! AND APPARANTLY WE'LL SEE THE REAL MEMBERS OF THE TEAM!!!
30 Rock: 4 DAYS!!!
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 3 The Painted Lady: 5 DAYS... gah it needs to be now.
So today wasn't exactly the best day in the world for me. As I guess you can tell from my heading. If you can guess where it's from without Googling it though, you get a cookie!
So I'm full of angsty/emoness right now... if you can deal with it
Oh, but before I leave all you lovely people, I'm about to go post some icons onto avatar_fans, so go check them out! XD
30 Rock: 5 DAYS!!! HAPPYSPEECHLESSSQUEE!!!
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 3 The Painted Lady: 6 DAYS!!! It can't come soon enough.
Wow, I really need some new countdowns...
I spent last night at _loudnproud_'s house, which was awesome. We had so much fun, and we watched The Headband (which, by the way, was made of awesome) and she showed me how to draw so much better than I used to, and today we saw Across the Universe, and got the all-Avatar Nick Magazine!! So basically, this rocks my socks off. XD
The Avatar magazine was pretty cool. The comics were awesome, if unrealistic. Mai is never that happy- she simply doesn't have that kind of fun, even when she's with Zuko. Then she makes sarcastic jokes and stuff, but they're still sarcastic, and she doesn't have fun like that. But still, it was awesome. And it said in it that Katara ends up with either Aang or Zuko. You know what this means Zutarians? THIS MEANS WAR!!!
Across the Universe was amazing. I don't even have words for it. No, seriously, I don't. I'm not going to say anything about it, because you have to go see it for yourselves. I'm just going to say that it was beautiful, and someone really art-directed the hell out of it, but it was still amazing. Very trippy, but still fantastic. XD
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 2 The Headband: TODAY HAPPY!SQUEE
30 Rock: OMG 6 DAYS!!! XD
Wow... so few countdowns now... I need new countdown-y stuff...
Anywho, The Headband tonght!!! And on that note, I want to apologize to all my friends for not commenting on your posts recently, it's just that you've all seen The Headband, but I'm waiting until it actually airs to see it, and you've posted spoilers... but I'll try to comment on the spoiler-less ones. :D
And I'm going to go see Across the Universe tomorrow with _loudnproud_, which should be pretty awesome. I've heard it's pretty cool, so...
And now onto my Bionic Woman reactions!!
Actually, I don't really need a cut for this, there are no spoilers...
The fighting scenes were amazing. The actors really know how to do this sort of thing, and do it well. They were absolutely fantastic.
Also, the special effects were phenomenal. The thing with her eye is truly fantastic.
Beyond that, it was only alright. Unless they fix the story, and soon, this isn't really going to go anywhere. It keeps you gripped, but afterward you just don't really care anymore...
And yeah, that's basically what I thought... I once again apologize for not being entirely caught up in my flist again, but I am seriously swamped... :)
Countdowns: (damn, there aren't very many of these now, are there?)
Bionic Woman: Tonight. XD
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 2 The Headband: 2 DAYS FANGIRLSQUEE!!
30 Rock: 8 DAYS YAY!!!
My apologies about not posting about these earlier, but my computer decided to hate me. I am probably so behind on my fpage, but I haven't even checked it yet...
And before I get into the fangirlery, I would like to mention how wierd my parents are. First they say that they're okay with my fangirling, but then they ask me not to squee during House last night. So then I said something along the lines of "But that's what fangirling is. So are you okay with me being a fangirl or not?" and they basically said that I can be a fangirl, but I can't squee, which basically means that I can't be a fangirl. They have clearly not adjusted to me being a nerd yet...
And now onto the fangirly fun!
Okay, my major reaction post is over. So today there's Bionic Woman, which should be pretty cool, and then Avatar as my whole awesome TV cycle picks up again!! XD
Heroes: OMFG IT'S TODAY... ACTUALLY IT'S IN 1 HOUR AND 40 MINS OMGOMGOMG!!!
House: TOMORROW!! SUPERSQUEE!!!
Bionic Woman: 2 days
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 2 The Headband: 4 DAYS!! XD
30 Rock: 10 DAYS SQUEE!!!
So after 4 days and a lot of posts, I'm finally caught up on my fpage. I'm so very proud of myself. So to celebrate I'm... spamming your fpages more? I don't know, I don't really get my logic...
And since I'm all caught up, I can start on my icons again!! Expect new icon posts soon, as well as my cosplay pics! XD
And to all my new friends, and my friends who posted to my Avatar reaction post, I love you guys!! You guys are the best. XD
Heroes: OMFGITSTOMORROW!!! YAYHIRO,CLAIRE, PETER, WELL, REALLYJUSTEVERYONE!! (And apparantly Claire gets a boyfriend ;D)
Bionic Woman: 3 days... pretty cool.
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 2 The Headband?: 5 DAYS HAPPY SQUEE!!!
30 Rock: 11 DAYS SQUEE!!!
So my apologies for not posting earlier, I usually try to catch up with my fpage before posting, but people have just posted so many amazing Avatar things, that despite the fact that I've been trying for the past three days, I'm still ages behind, so... I'm sorry.
Before I start squeeing over Avatar, I just want to welcome all my new friends from the friending meme! Hi new friends from the friending meme!
Now for the my Avatar thoughts:
Okay, I think I'm done for now... cosplay pictures to go up soon, and tomorrow or the day after I will be totally squeeing over Heroes, and then House, and then maybe Bionic Woman, and then Avatar again!! Wow, this is just one long, vicious cycle, isn't it? Except, it's not so vicious. XD
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 1 The Awakening: TOMORROWOMFGINCOHERANTSQUEE!!!
Heroes: 4 DAYS SQUEE!!!
House: 5 DAYS OMG!!!
Bionic Woman: 6 Days... pretty cool.
30 Rock: 7 DAYS= ONE WEEK SQUEE!!!
Before I get into Avatar-related stuff, I want to do my regular post, so it's readable...
So I have the best dad in the world. I hope he appreciates this, because I usually don't say it, but he knows how into Avatar I am, and yesterday he got me the complete seasons 1 & 2!!! He is amazing, and I love him.
Now for today... on the way to school I took the Bronx Science bus as usual, but in our scramble to get a seat and not have to stand, _loudnproud_and I got stuck with the screwed up double-seat in the very back of the bus. It was literally dented. It made for a most... interesting bus ride.
And then the rest of today was pretty normal. For my Math Sudoku project, I've decided to do an Evil Sudoku puzzle, because I'm really good at them, and because I get 10 points extra credit if I do an evil, or even just a hard one, so that kind of rocks.
And now I'm really desperate for my Global project. I need to do a Powerpoint presentation with my partner, so we went to the college library afterschool so we could make it together. Who would have thought that a college library wouldn't have any computers avaliable with Powerpoint???
Now for my Avatar squeeing:
Well, this sucks. Now I have to go find somebody to resurrect me so I can see The Awakening... damn. But still, my incoherant squeeing goes on!
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 1 The Awakening: ZOMG2DAYSINCESSANTSQUEEING!!!
Heroes: 5 DAYS OMFG!!
House: 6 DAYS!!!
Bionic Woman: 7 days... pretty cool.
30 Rock: 15 DAYS!!!
So as I guess you can tell, I've completed my TV countdowns. Which basically makes from tomorrow until the Thursday after that just about the best week of my life, TV-wise.
Oh, and new friends from the Avatar Friends Meme, hi! Just do me a favor and comment on this so I know who you are and stuff... maybe tell me something interesting about you or something... :D
And teachers are evil, and want to kill us with homework. Luckily for me, I have procrastinating down to an art. On the other hand, it doesn't matter how good I am at procrastinating, there is nothing on the internet or in Encarta that will tell me the churches views on people and women and such during the Renaissance. All anything does is tell me a history...
Time for TV squeeing!!
I no longer know the meaning of coherancy.
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 1 The Awakening: 5 DAYS DSLKFHDFLKWJHED;LFSQUEE!!!
Heroes: 7 DAYS = 1 WEEK!!!
House: 8 DAYS!!
Bionic Woman: 9 days! (Ok, so I'm not a fan of this yet, seeing as it hasn't started. But it sounds really good, so I'm excited.
And now for my incoherant Emmys squeeing.
Second of all: How the hell did Alec Baldwin not win best comedic actor? He totally should have. The only other person who it would have been okay with me if they won would have been Tony Shaloub (my apologies for butchering the spelling) for Monk. But he didn't win either.
Third of all: How did some guy from Boston Legal that no one even knows beat out Hugh Laurie as House, Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer and whats-his-face as Tony Soprano for best dramatic actor??? Hugh Laurie should have won, and the only other person who could have in my eyes is the Tony Soprano actor (what is his name anyway?), but neither of them did. Some random guy from Boston Legal did, and the only reason I can remember the name of the show at all is because William Shatner is on it.
Fourthly: Why didn't Masi Oka win best supporting actor in a drama? He is the awesomest character I have ever seen, and he needs to win it. Like, now. Because, really, how is anything going to beat "Mr. Issac!" in his Japanese accent while he's holding up the Spock fingers?
And lastly: What the hell is "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee"? Because it really swept everything in the movie/miniseries category, but I've never heard of it.... And how come Matthew Perry's TV movie didn't win anything? It should have won everything just because Matthew Perry was in it, and he's awesome.
And my Emmy squee is over. At least it is on the internet. For now.
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 1 The Awakening: 7 DAYS=ONE WEEK OMGSQEEE!!!!
Heroes: Um... some time from now? Wierd, for one of my two favorite dramas on TV, I don't know when it starts. Someone help me out here?
30 Rock: Wow, I really know nothing about the fall TV schedule... again if anyone knows...?
House: Okay, you know what? If anyone knows when any TV show starts, I don't care which one, could you just tell me?
So my brother is listening to his audiobooks on his MP3 player, except he has his Fly Pentop Computer speakers hooked up to it, and he doesn't seem to have a grasp on the concept of not turning the sound all the way up, so if my post seems kind of... out of it, it's because I am.
And I'm officially cosplaying as Mai on Friday, so here's to hoping I get my costume finished on time! inuyattagave me some awesome tips on how to make it, so she rocks.
And I've uploaded some new icons to avatar_fans, these are from the new chibi shorts on the Avatar Season 2 DVD, and a few from School Time Shipping as well.
And lastly, I've decided to start drawing more, so I have my first comic! Opinions, thoughts, really just anything you can say about it would be helpful. :D Also, are there enough Avatar references in there that I can post it to avatar_fans? I kind of want to, but if there aren't enough, I don't want to look stupid.
Avatar The Last Airbender, Book 3 Fire, Chapter 1 The Awakening: 13 days!!! (squee!!)
Yes, so I've reinstated the countdown(s), because I just want to know exactly how long it is until Avatar... as soon as I find definate dates for other movies/TV shows, I'll post them too. So if anyone knows when the season premere of Heroes or 30 Rock is, or when Across the Universe or some other good movie comes out, please tell.
And I am a complete dork/Avatard. Just thought I'd state the obvious...
Lastly, more icons on avatar_fans!! They're actually pretty good if I do say so myself. Also, if anyone has any lines from anything they want iconed, please tell me...
