I like to collect random .GIFs. My criteria for choosing which ones to save is basically this. They have to be a. adorable, b. hilarious, c. fierce, d. sexy, or e. all of the above. It also helps if they feature someone I am obsessed with. So here we are, terrible amounts of picture-loading below the cut, just to warn you.

VAST AMOUNTS OF AWESOME UNDER HERE )

Hope you enjoyed.

OMG! I just found the most amazing animated Pushing Daisies mood theme set! It is brilliant. And I have a feeling I will just be picking random moods for each entry now just to see the adorable animations. So don't take them for the 100% truth of how I'm actually feeling because they probably won't be. Squeee! I am so excited!

Also, I am a dork and made a bunch of icons out of Newbury screencaps when I was bored the other night. The only problem is I don't have enough userpic slots to use all of them and I am too attached to my current ones to delete most of them. They embarrass me anyway. Kinda. But I wasted too much time making them to not use any.

P.S. LOL EMERSON IS AMUSED!!!!111!!

OMG HARPER'S ISLAND. ADORABLE GROOM IS THE SON OF A KILLER AND A PSYCHO AND ALSO A KILLER AND NOW DEAD. REMEMBER THIS POST?!? I HAVE BEEN IN LOVE WITH A MURDERER THE ENTIRE TIME!!! WHICH IS TOTALLY AWESOME.



I'M ON YR ISLAND. KILLING MY FIANCE. AND FALLING IN LOVE WITH MY SISTER.

Ahem. Anyway, I started out watching this show thinking it would be so cheesy and badly acted and poorly plotted that it would be hilarious and entertaining, but it turned out to be shockingly well-done. The last few episodes were way intense, the deaths were always awesomely gory, and the whole thing was actually wrapped up very well. I was legitimately freaked out and surprised during the last two episodes tonight. It was amazing.

Also, resemblence?



Yes? No? Maybe? I'm crazy? Either way, they are both terribly cute.



Uh... what was I talking about again??? I can't function properly while staring at this picture.

The funny thing about Ben is that he looks like a completely different person in almost every picture of him taken. It's very strange.

ONE MORE LOVELY BOY BEFORE I LEAVE:



Even though every time I look at him, I just think again about how depressed I am that Pushing Daisies is over. The season two DVD set comes out this month, I believe; that offers a little condolence. But still. I need new Ned! And it is not going to happen! :(

I saved the best for last.



GLASSES ARE A HUUUUUUGE TURN-ON FOR ME. EVEN IF SOMEONE IS SEXY BEFORE PUTTING ON GLASSES, PUTTING ON GLASSES MAKES THEM TEN THOUSAND TIMES SEXIER.

Okay, I am a freak. And I am going to go do something worthwhile now. Like write something besides fangirl babbling.

I was bored and putting off playing the Newbury Summerfield kiddos at college (because I am slightly burnt out on college right now) so I made this new Sim. Her name is Frances. I'm not sure what exactly I'm going to do with her yet. I thought I might try this because I was going to awhile ago and then abandoned the idea. And I've already made some other Sims to move in with her but then I suddenly thought, what if she was surrounded by a bunch of crazy, depressed non-heir Newburys? Yes? Yes? This is a good idea? It'd still be like that challenge, albeit without all the randomness and stuff, but it'd also involve characters I've already grown attached to and know all about which would make it twice as fun. But I'm not sure I can make myself subject enough Newburys to possible death and/or eternal mental instability. We shall see. Anyway, point is she's adorable and I spent a lot of time on her and I already love her so I've got to do something with her. Especially considering I'm getting to that point with the Newburys where it's starting to get a little old and I need something else to distract me sometimes.



In other news, oh God, next week is the last episode of Pushing Daisies. Why must the world be so cruel?!? I'm not sure I'll survive without seeing new episodes ever again! It is so sad. :(

OMG!

Just finished watching the third to last (*sniff sniff*) episode of Pushing Daisies. Tres magnifique! As usual. And the next episode looks even more amazing. God, I've missed this show so much. And I will miss it even more once it's gone for good. ABC sucks for canceling it. Everyone in the world who wasn't watching it sucks for being stupid. Good things never last. Sigh. Here are some lovely clips I've found on Youtube of various episodes. Enjoy.

Kristen Chenoweth doin' what she does best - singing her heart out and being all hilarious and adorable at the same time. Also, she is soooo tiny! In the beginning there when they're standing together, she's like half the size of Lee Pace!

OMG, Olive's face at "Is it how many nuns? Like a number puzzle?" And then - Ned: "So... Aunt Lily had a baby twenty-nine years ago, right around the time that Chuck was born, so Chuck... has a cousin her same age but not really her cousin because Lily and Vivian aren't really her aunts!" Olive: "You are killing me!"

"I wake pies and make the dead. That was creepy. I make pies and wake the dead."

Ned's southern accent = full of win.

"SURPRISE RANDOM PIE DELIVERY!"

Group hug. Adorable.

"I would if I could but I can't but you can if you could and you should." Also, Ned's clue pad! So cute.

That was just, like, four from the same episode. Clearly, it was an amazing episode. I would go on forever but I'll stop myself now.

Also, totally unrelated except that it's about television. This is so fucking hilarious (can't embed unfortunately). The ending never fails to crack me up. It is extremely cruel... but the funniest thing ever. And in a similar vein but even more distasteful (You kinda have to watch the video to get it... and it'd also help to have some general knowledge on the trainwreck that is Jon and Kate Gosselin):

This is so wrong. )

Oh my God, I am so going to hell for laughing at that.

LEE PACE!

I had to get some more user pics because I was tired of only having one and I stumbled upon this fantastic community. Seriously, made my day. Best thing ever. And since ABC is apparently refusing to show the last three episodes of Pushing Daisies (damn them!) I need to get my Lee fix any way I can. The good news is I got my sister into this show so I've been watching season one with her. The bad news is we just finished it. I need season two DVDs, like, yesterday. If they're not going to show the rest on TV, they might as well put them out now, right? Anyway. The point of this post is to share the loveliness that is Lee Pace. Without further ado...

Click this. You will not be sorry. )

  • No Doubt. Holy shit. I know my last post was about them but I am seriously obsessed. I have listened to hardly anything else for about a week now. Gwen Stefani pre-solo career is totally my hero now, I'm telling you. Return of Saturn is especially doing a lot for me. I can't believe I used to own that album and yet I still only remembered, like, two songs apart from the singles. How could I be so dense back then?!? The entire album is so damn good. "Six Feet Under", "Artificial Sweetener", "Too Late", "Suspension Without Suspense", "Home Now", "Dark Blue"... seriously. I know that's almost the entire thing but it's that good! There are only two songs I wouldn't consider awesome and they're still pretty great. One of the non-single tracks I did remember though is "Staring Problem" - I actually used to adore that song. I'm pretty sure I even wrote some story using the lyrics as inspiration and I really wish I still had it somewhere because it's probably hilariously terrible and would have given me a good laugh. Anyway, I think I'm, like, going to buy all of their albums used on Amazon or something because, hello, I need them! Apart from just listening to them, I also got all nostalgic watching the music videos and live Tragic Kingdom show DVDs that came with the Boom Box set... I've had that almost since it came out and I had never watched the live DVD (or listened to the b-sides disc). Jesus. Love love love. Okay, moving on...

  • Pushing Daisies. Maybe it's just because of the fact that pretty soon there will be no more new episodes for me to devour, but I seriously think this show gets better every week. You'd think I'd be really sad watching it but it still hasn't completely sunk in that it will be over soon - I think the depression will set in once there are actually no episodes left. And I will just have to watch it on DVD over and over and over again. It just makes me feel so idiotically happy every time I watch; I love all of the characters and the droolworthy wardrobe and sets and most of all, that pretty much every piece of dialogue uttered is hilarious and instantly quotable. A couple highlights from Wednesday: "Don't be pecking me, woman. That's the peck of cahoots which we are definitely not in." Everything Emerson says is golden. And also Ned telling Chuck, "Are we weird now because I did it with your dad?" - also laugh-out-loud hilarious. And unsurprisingly, next week looks amaaaaazing as well. Olive and Emerson's synchronized "oh HELL no!" - completely brilliant. *sigh* It figures that the only show I've ever loved this obsessively is apparently ignored by most everyone else. What is wrong with you, world?!?

  • Reading. I just finished A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby which I believe is my fiftieth book read for the year, woo! I wasn't going to finish it because I had to return it to the library in a few days and I wasn't sure if I would be able to get it done, but once I started, it was a really fast and enjoyable read. Extremely hilarious. Which is weird to say about a book that has a plot centered around four people who want to jump off the roof of a building, but it's true. I laughed out loud on several occasions which is rare for me with books. Overall, it was really fun and witty and I'm glad I decided to actually read it. I wasn't going to get any more books because I still have a couple I bought that I haven't read yet, but I ended up checking out two more. Oh well... I guess I do have forever to read the ones I own so it doesn't really matter.

  • Sims! It doesn't seem like it, since it was only two posts ago, but the last time I posted pictures was almost three weeks ago. What?! Must. Fix. Now. Here are updates/selected pictures for each of my current families:
Cartwright )

Ruby & Will )

Perkins )

Also... )

Why, yes, I am aware what a dork I am. It's better to embrace it than deny it, right?
stillonmystring: (Default)
Time for more Ruby and Will gushing? Yes, I think it is.

You know you want it! )

There are about a gazillion more pictures in the gallery. So I've decided that they are basically my favorite Sims ever, everrrrr. Too. Cute. I'm way more excited about them than the storyline I'm really supposed to be working on right now, but at least they're kind of part of that, so I can be obsessed with them without completely abandoning everything else. Though Ruby is now one day away from growing up and Will is about eight or nine days away, so before I can play them again in college, I have to get all the other Sims involved in the story grown up as well, so I will not be able to squee over them for awhile. Sad, I know. However, it does give me more incentive to play through everyone else's childhood years. Just so I can see Will and Ruby! They are going to be beyond adorable in college. Gah. I can't even think about it without imploding with cuteness.

Anyway... in other non-Sim news, saw Twilight yesterday. I'm not sure what I really think about it, but I'm leaning toward the bad side of the spectrum. I mean, I did enjoy it in the uber-cheesy, so-bad-it's-good way but on the other hand, I kind of hated a lot of aspects of it, even looking at them from that perspective. The biggest thing is that based on his other work, I do think Robert Pattinson is a fairly talented actor, however, there were quite a few points during Twilight that made me feel like cringing on his behalf; most notably, the part where they're talking in a tree and he starts saying "my family, we're different from other vampires..." or something like that. The look on his face is just, ugh, he looks constipated or something. And sometimes his accent seemed off and the makeup was really doing him no favors.  However, the part where Bella first walks into biology class, his reaction was hilarious and I really hope it was intended to be because I don't see how that could be meant to be taken seriously. As for Kristen Stewart, she was mostly pretty good, but sometimes she got a bit iffy as well. She mainly bothered me during the hospital scene at the end, when Edward was saying something about how she should go and live with her mom, and she was all freaking out and saying he couldn't leave her, blah blah blah, there was just way too much stuttering and stammering and it was just really awkward and seemed more campy than truly emotional. And the special effects, oh my God, they were terrible. The end fight scene with James wasn't too bad and mostly believable, but the rest - the climbing up trees and leaping through the forest - looked just horrendous. You could tell it was so low budget. But the worst offender of all was the sparkling, sweet Jesus, the sparkling. They should have just taken it out - it looked like they just put some body glitter on him and called it good. And not only that, it looked all... fuzzy and so fake, like it belonged more in an 80s-era movie than a movie made in 2008. Seriously, they should've just foregone the glittering; it's the stupidest quality of the vampires in the books anyway. And, at the very end, I think it was when Edward was trying to get the strength to stop sucking Bella's blood out, there was this uber-cheesy montage of their relationship with, I'm pretty sure, Rob's own song playing over it - and the song is just terrible and totally ruined any poignancy that may have had. Sorry, Rob, but you do not have a good singing voice. Just the use of montages in general was annoying; they replaced potentially revealing scenes with montages of them talking while music played; pretty pointless waste of space. Anyway, it wasn't a completely terrible waste of time, but it wasn't amazing either. Honestly, though, my expectations were not that high so it neither exceeded or failed to reach them. It was pretty much exactly what I was expecting it to be.

Holy shit, that was long, sorry. I'll try to make this shorter. I finished the book American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld the other day and I have mixed feelings about it. It took me forever to finish and seemed to progress really slowly. During pretty much the entire first three parts, I couldn't even focus because I kept thinking, "When the hell does he become president?!?" That is the part that the book's been hyped around and it's not even that long despite being the most interesting part. So it did get good at that point but the rest just seemed way too drawn out and detailed and boring. And something about the writing bothered me. It was just really bland or something. And when I checked it out the librarian told me that the ending was "surprising in an unexpected way" but frankly, I was not surprised at all and it was totally expected. I knew that she was going to do something to "betray" her husband because of how vehemently the differences between their political opinions were made clear throughout. And as soon as she mentioned them voting the first time he was elected, I was sure that it would eventually be revealed that she didn't vote for him, it seemed obvious to me, and I was right on that as well. So it wasn't a total letdown but I was expecting it to be a lot better.

Finally, Pushing Daisies is officially over. I am so depressed. I at least hope they show all of the remaining episodes at some point and I will be buying the second season DVD the minute it comes out. But apparently it ends on a huge cliffhanger so that makes the fact that it won't be resolved even more depressing. I really hope that talk of a movie in that article isn't just talk. While I would probably seek out the comic book version mentioned if that comes about, the reason I love the show so much is mostly because of the acting (oh my God, the glorious acting!) and the beautiful sets and that stuff cannot be replicated in a comic book. So I really hope a movie or something happens. Why must this always happen to me? I have never been this upset about the cancellation of a TV show ever. I hate that the general public is apparently too dense to realize the awesomeness of this show. I mean, I'll admit to watching my fair share of reality shows and CSIs, but I realize that that's pretty meaningless shlock while Pushing Daisies is something real and creative and smart. Gah, it's not fair. Anyway, in light of this news, I feel the need to post a bunch of PD picspam or at least Lee Pace/Ned picspam. Stay tuned for that.

Oh My God

The hilarity, I can't take it. I was cracking up so hard during this entire thing.


How is he so amazingly awesome? Though really, this just made me wish he was still making the Unauthorized Documentary videos (which if you haven't had the pleasure of watching, start with the first one and watch all of them, which unfortunately only amounts to five). He is hilariously awkward as Dr. Reid but he is just hilariously hilarious in real life. Come be my lover, MGG!

Though he totally has some major competition at this point - maybe a certain piemaker who is more adorable than should lawfully be permitted for the safety of girls like me?... Pushing Daisies was on again tonight after two weeks off and I was so happy yet so sad that the inevitable end keeps looming closer. Why oh why must everything I love be so hideously underappreciated by the masses? Anyway, tonight was amazing as usual; between Ned, his almost as cute half-brothers, his adorably (and necessarily) chaste relationship with Chuck, and the ball of cuteness that is Olive Snook, I am so insanely in love with this show. Everything about it is absolute perfection and I do not understand how more people aren't catching on. It feels nice to root for the underdog but it doesn't feel so nice when there's really nothing you can do to help them stay alive.

Anyway, I just love gushing! But I'll stop now because I realize I really need to find some more words that mean "cute" and "adorable" before I go any further.

P.S. Barring any last minute ticket sellouts, I am totally going to see Twilight on Friday and I can't fucking wait. I was an obsessive fangirl over the first book for about a week and my enthusiasm has gradually died down into an "it's so good because it's so bad" attitude... and the acting in the movie from the commercials looks really awkward and forced... but it should at the very least be hilariously terrible. Plus, staring at Robert Pattinson for two hours - I think I can definitely get on board with that. I would include Jackson Rathbone in this statement as well but, really, he is adorable in real life and does nothing for me as Jasper. I think it's the hair - the poof and the blond on their own aren't too shocking but together they just don't really work at all. Also, both of these guys tend to look like homeless bums half the time but the other half of the time they are repulsively attractive and squishably cute, respectably. (Have you seen Jackson's smile - oh my God, the cutest thing everrrrrr.) Oh yeah, I said I needed to stop gushing and using those two words. I think that's my sign to really leave now.

Look what I bought Sunday!

Clicky-click. )

I was kind of pissed though because first I looked at Meijer and I found the first two but not Apartment Life and that was the one I wanted the most. So I just bought those two there thinking they wouldn't be any cheaper anywhere else then we go to Wal-Mart and they're all $5 cheaper. Gah! Oh well. Anyway, I haven't really done much yet but what I have done/watched my sister do is pretty awesome. The apartments are a lot smaller than I was assuming though... like, even the more expensive ones still seem tiny. I haven't tried out the most expensive ones yet so maybe they're bigger but still... I moved a family of three into a pretty high-priced apartment and barely had room to place the toddler's crib and changing table and stuff. I have no idea what I'm going to do when he grows up, though!

And here are a few pictures is one picture (because I stupidly deleted the rest) just for the sake of it:

*squee* )

Yeah, so they're basically the cutest family ever. More information about them a little later.

Also, look what I bought forever ago on Amazon and finally got yesterday!

Goodies. )

Yay for spending money!

I need to take this time to mention two guys I would totally have babies with given the opportunity. And this is not a title I throw around very easily so they are very special men indeed. Too bad they are completely unattainable. Oh well, a girl can dream, right? I present the sexy to you below. Just try to resist it.

They're bringing sexy back... yeah! )

Someone kidnap them for me and bring them to me, 'kay?
