10:58 pm - Drama much?
Okay, people falling down to their knees crying because Obama has been elected?

Not necessary and highly annoying.

Don't get me wrong. I voted for him. I'm happy. But the tears aren't necessary.

Stop the dramatics for the cameras.

Edit: What I like...

John McCain giving his concession speech in a very gracious way, and the fact that he silenced his supporters when they started booing that Obama had won (on more than one occasion). I hope that he does work with Obama because if they can work together, they might actually get this nation together.

What I don't like...

Overzealous Obama fans that are cursing Republicans and people who voted for McCain. People saying things like "Fuck you, Republicans!" and "Your reign of terror is over!" What the hell does that accomplish aside from making you look like an idiot? How about you stop cursing people for being extremist Republicans while you're being an extremist Democrat? Idiots.

I'm spending Halloween watching TV and handing out candy to kids.

Whee.

3:53 am - Because I'm an obsessive comic fan...
I went to CW's website and sent in some feedback. This is what I wrote:

Dear CW...Collapse )

I don't think that'll stop them, but at least I did my part.

2:45 am - Dear CW, I hate you.
Dear CW,

No. Absolutely not. You cannot do a series on Dick Grayson before he became Robin. You've already ruined the back story of one DC superhero with Smallville (among other guest star appearances by other DC heroes), I don't want to see another. Besides, Dick Grayson was 8 when his parents were killed. Are we going to watch a TV show about a 7 year old circus acrobat? The interesting stuff with his character happened after Bruce took him in... or during his transition from Robin to Nightwing.

WTF?

I absolutely hate you, CW. Go ruin some other franchise already.

And the fact that you gave Dick Grayson another nickname (Dick "DJ" Grayson) just makes me want to burn your offices to the ground. DJ? His name is Richard and Dick is his nickname. You don't need to shorten it anymore than that. Don't like that his name is Dick? Take on another character then.

Piss off, CW.

No love,
Me

11:56 pm - Tom Brady's Injury
For those of my friends that follow football (if I have any friends that do... I'm not sure), Tom Brady was injured during the first quarter of the season opener, and he's out for the season. Do I think it was a dirty hit by Pollard? No. Do I think it was an illegal hit? Absolutely, even if the NFL doesn't agree with me.

There is a rule about hitting the quarterback below the knees. You can't do it. Pollard was on the ground, and there was no way he was going to be able to hit Tom Brady in a legal way... but he went for it. Wilfork fell into a quarterback's legs last year, and he got fined and penalized for it. I don't see why this is different.

But what's done is done. Brady's hurt and out for the season. Yeah, it sucks for the Patriots. But that doesn't mean the team is out of the game. The team still has a bunch of strong players, including a Pro Bowl offensive line, so while we probably won't see a repeat of last year's undefeated regular season, the Patriots are still contenders for the playoffs.

For all of the people who don't like the Patriots, who are still chanting they are cheaters and saying that Tom Brady deserved this... I hope you suffer from a torn ACL. It hurts like a mother fucker, and I don't care if it's someone you hate... you don't wish that on someone.

I'm not a big Peyton Manning fan (or Eli Manning for that matter), but I wouldn't wish that on them.

This is going to be an interesting year for football with the NFL MVP out for the season... and the AFC looking as crappy as it did last Sunday. Bolts and Colts both looked terrible. Jets didn't look too great either, even with Favre.

So we'll just have to see what happens.

11:23 pm - The Letter D
Taken from arch_schatten:
1. Comment to this post.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ.


I was given the letter D.

If you don't guess the first one, you don't visit my journal enough :)Collapse )

6:11 pm - Are you ready for some football?
It's football season, huzzah! I figured that called for a few Patriots icons.

For those of you that aren't Patriots fans or hate the Patriots, save it. I know they're probably the most hated team in football right now, but I don't care. I love them, always have. Home town pride and all that... Gillette Stadium is probably about 20 minutes from my house.

The game today was nerve wracking! Tom Brady out on an injury, so Matt Cassel had to step up, and step up he did! It looks like he was just pretending to be a bumbling idiot for most of his career. Or maybe all of that time he played in the preseason helped him out.

Either way, let's hope that Brady's injury wasn't too serious.

1. Open your Winamp/iTunes/WMP/wtfever.
2. Put the shuffle-mode on.
3. Find a picture of the first 20 artists. If the same artist comes again, skip.
4. Have your f-list guess who they are.

Whee!Collapse )

You don't know how many times I had to skip #1 coming up over and over again *g*.

Seriously... best scene in TV history. It's even better out of context.



Thanks, Star Trek!

Patriots are in the Super Bowl! Woo!

Edit: Huh. The Giants beat Green Bay. That's surprising. The Patriots beat them last time, so I expect the Super Bowl to be no different.

1:14 am - Yes, I'm still around...
Happy holidays to all my friends! Sorry I haven't been online in a week, but it's been a very busy week. My sister and her family drove up from Florida last Saturday, we went to Vermont and drove up the side of a mountain on a very scary, ice-covered driveway (but I'll detail that more later), went sledding on said mountain, and then came home yesterday only to go to my cousin's wedding last night and get really drunk.

The holidays are so much fun...

Oh, and Patriots are 16-0! Perfect regular season! The 1972 Dolphins can send that champagne that they were going to give the team that beat the Patriots to Foxboro Stadium. Take that, Patriots-haters! Ha!

current mood: happy

1:39 am - Plagerizing is not cool.
I just found a completely plagerized story on ff.net. It's here. I hope she deletes it after she reads my comment. Once I realized I'd read a story almost exactly like this before, I pulled out the book (which just happens to be one of my favorite Star Trek books), I realized practically this entire story was copied word for word.

How sad.

This was my comment to the story:

Wow. Just wow. This is the most glaring plagerization I have EVER come across on ff.net. Seriously. This is almost word for word from the story of The Covenant of the Crown.

You have the same premise. Spock and McCoy are trapped on a planet (sure you took out Kailyn and your reason is a little different... whoopdee do). There are Klingons pursuing them, and they're climbing a mountain where they run into locals that know about space travel. You changed Shirn O'tay's name to Shar-in, but that's about all the originality I see here. You even used direct passages from the book.
~~
The stone paved walkway ended and McCoy continued along a path at the base of a high cliff. The smooth wall of rock rose up to blend with the dark sky, it was hard to tell where one ended and the other began. Below him, the steep slope fell away to the valley floor hundreds of feet down. There was a soft thump from the path a few yards ahead of him. He glanced up and saw a little lump of snow that hadn’t been there a moment ago. Before he could turn to look around, the silent night was shattered by a screeching roar from above and behind him. Giant claws slashed at his throat. No place to go but over the cliff. Suddenly hands grabbed him, he held them, felt them give way, felt himself being pushed to safety as the animal fell backwards over the cliff.

This is the one that gave you away to me. So I pulled out the book.
~~
“Spock, why are we doing this?” McCoy asked exasperated.

“You know why, Doctor,” Spock replied impatiently.

“Tell me again, cause right now, I have my doubts,” McCoy said. “Here we are climbing a mountain somewhere in the middle of nowhere..”

“We are proceeding along the most logical course,” Spock replied.

~~
“These travelers have been held without need,” the old man said. “Release them.

Immediately, the hand ropes were untied.

“You are free to leave,” said the old man.

“Now?” McCoy asked surprised.

~~
I could list them all, but I'm sure you know exactly which words you plagerized. I know that the book was published over 20 years ago, but some of us dedicated fans have a copy and prefer Howard Weinstein's version much better.


Pfft... what a moron.

I ran one of those "who comments the most in my journal" things. I was curious. I'm not at all surprised by the top two. You guys talk a lot *g*
