So this is an amnesty post.

I know that I haven't been around, haven't been commenting as much. This semester has been really rough for me and next semester will be thesis time so I will be around even less. What little time I do have has been spent on Tumblr because it's faster.

If you want to unfriend me, this is an amnesty post. No hard feelings, no drama, nothing. You unfriend me, I unfriend you, and we still stay friends. Like I'm serious here.

After my thesis, I will probably be back on a full time basis. Or at least I hope. I miss fandom, miss making graphics. It was very calming and I am going to do my holiday icons over Thanksgiving break, IDGAF.

Love you all and miss you a ton.

Before I begin my review, there are a few things I need to get off my chest. First off, I LIKE the idea of remakes. (Notice IDEA). They offer additional source material to draw from for fannish activities, they bring new people to fandom, and they rekindle interest in the older source material. Sometimes they are horrible (Starsky and Hutch), sometimes they are decent (Charlie's Angels), sometimes they are awesome (Star Trek. The whole AU idea is genius). So when it comes to remakes, I am not one of these people who screams NO! (Like with the possible Buffy remake). As a HUGE fan of the original Fright Night, I know a few other fans were not happy with the remake or even the suggestion of one.

Second, the elephant in the room. Marti Noxon wrote the screenplay. And while she gets blamed for the attempted rape in Seeing Red, at the end of the day, Joss had to approve that storyline. I'm not absolving blame from Noxon in the slightest but I think several reviews I have read are trying to use their dislike of Noxon from BTVS to color their review of Fright Night. I'm not.

For those who want to remain spoiler free I will just say this GO SEE THIS MOVIE )

For those not on Tumblr or Twitter, I am alive. I did survive my surgery.

Now I have four long weeks of recovery and four new big ass scars to show for it. I'm feeling better already, already seeing the positive outcomes from the surgery after just one week. Those first few days though, I cried a lot and screamed "never again".

I'm bored as hell though. I can watch tv, knit, listen to music, read, get on the computer, and play video games. That is about it. It's amazing how much you miss bending over when you are barred from doing it. Being on the computer for long periods of time is hard for me sadly so it's mostly been tv watching and listening to audiobooks. I can only use my laptop because of the position I have to stay in and it doesn't have photoshop or my SIMS on it. :(

The pain is manageable and not as intense as my first surgery. They discovered a lot of damage from the first botched procedure so I'm supposed to meet with a malpractice attorney as soon as I am cleared to drive. (That will be in about another week to 10 days they said)

I know I missed a lot of flisting stuff so please link me. I went back about 600 entries before I couldn't do it anymore. Thanks for all the well wishes too. I know the positive vibes really helped me through it. I could feel it. No lie.

EXCLUSIVE: Charisma Carpenter: "You Need To Get It Out That I'm A Proud Latina!"

By Lee Hernandez | 07/20/2011 - 20:10

Her name is Charisma Carpenter and she’s best known for playing all-American cheerleader Cordelia Chase on the hit TV show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But there’s something many people don’t know about Charisma—she’s Latina! “I think it’s the best kept secret ever,” said the sweet actress, whose grandfather was born in Spain. “You need to get it out that I’m a proud Latina!”

Charisma says she’s been trying to tell people she’s Latina for years—but they don’t believe her. “They’re not buying it,” she says. “I feel a little rejected by the Latina community. I say that in jest—I don’t sincerely mean it. But I mean…a little bit.”

The talented actress, who has a huge fan base for her work on Buffy and its spinoff, Angel, thinks she knows why people don’t believe she’s Latina. ”I guess I’m too white, too pale,” she says. “I guess they’ve never seen me tan…I don’t know.”

The 40-year-old actress says she wasn’t raised speaking Spanish—but there’s a reason for that. “My grandfather had a pretty terrible experience being in America and being from Spain,” she says sounding a bit more serious. “He came to this country as an immigrant with his family. He was a crop picker: strawberries, cotton, all that kind of stuff. And what would happen back in those days is that parents would go away and send their small children to a boarding house or an orphanage.”

Charisma says it must have been a crooked operation because her abuelo was smuggled out of the orphanage in the middle of the night, with his aunt, and adopted out to an American family who mistreated, mocked, and humiliated them. “{They} thought it was so precious and adorable that they spoke Spanish. They would make them sing in Spanish in front of their friends. Their friends would come over and they were the entertainment, so to speak,” she says.

Charisma says the ordeal was very painful for her grandfather. “He was embarrassed by it, so he chose to forget the {Spanish} language,” she says. “He refused to speak it. So my parents weren’t raised speaking Spanish.”

Still, Charisma says she managed to learn Spanish on her own. “I took Spanish since I was in the sixth grade and I lived in Mexico for a couple of years {her dad relocated there for work} when I was in high school,” she says. “I went to a school that had a strong Latino environment in Southern San Diego—about six miles from the border, so I {grew up} in the culture.”

This weekend, Charisma says she’s attending a Latino film festival in support of the new film, Without Men, which stars Latinas Eva Longoria, Judy Reyes, and Kate Del Castillo. “I’m going to support Eva!” she says enthusiastically.

xlivvielockex: (ATS: Smarter Angel)
We know Angel likes hockey...

But what team do you think he would root for?

Thinking in a writers' room way, would they have made him a Flyers fan since David Boreanaz is a huge Flyers nut or you think they would have made him go for The Kings (or maybe The Ducks) since that would be the closest team?

What about being a basketball fan? Those games are played indoors and at night. I think he would probably be a Lakers fan, proximity and all. Or again, use DB and have Angel a fan of the 76ers (Oh poor Angelbear, he has suffered enough. At least it's not the Nets right?)

He is just such an alpha male type that I think, in my personal head canon, that he watches Sportscenter every night. He probably never goes to games because of all the people but he totally ordered a sports package from his cable provider.

After a long discussion and hemming and hawwing, my husband and I decided to get a Wii with our tax return. So far we Indiana Jones 2 and Mario Kart. If anyone has suggestions for games, I'm all ears. And if someone has a Wii and wants our friend code, just let me know. :)

Lifewise, I'm just busy with grad school and attempting to write my C/A fic for the Valentine's Day Smut-A-Thon. I have a pretty good idea and outline, I just need to sit down and write it.

Miss you guys. I can't wait for summer when I can actually be around and do fandom stuff.

Well, working my little tail off as the semester draws to a close. Working on a paper right now but luckily it's a topic I enjoy so it's going quickly.

That isn't what this post is about though.

This weekend, husband and I watched Scott Pilgram vs The World. Neither of us enjoyed it. We kept looking at each other going "we are supposed to root for this douchebag?"

What I don't get is why is it so popular? Can someone explain it to me? I mean, none of the characters are particularly well crafted, the jokes are rather lame, Michael Cera is doing the same character he has done since his Arrested Development days. I just don't get why it is so popular. I was expecting so much more.

Anyone out there like it? Can you help me out here? I just know it is so popular and it's so rare that my husband and I, neither of us can see why it is so "cool". Maybe we are just getting to old?

It's Halloween and since Stranger Things is taking this year off from the Halloween ficathon, I thought now would be the perfect time to revist some of those fics of days past. Under the cut are plenty of spooky Cordelia/Angel Halloween fics to get your blood going! There are many more on Stranger Things that haven't been archived at JustFic yet. You can find the master list here

If you have any more C/A Halloween fic/fanart/etc that isn't listed here, please, list it in the comments. (And anyone have any sister ship Spuffy Halloween recs? Maybe?)

Hey people!

I am still alive, I know some of you were doubting. Grad school has pretty much killed any attempt at fandom or a social life. I apologize in advance for neglecting everyone on LJ. Things are easing up as we move into term paper season so that is good for me to catch up. I have WAY too many comments to reply to so if you get a reply from something you posted three months to me, sorry. :)

Really quick, I know I have a few RPers on my list. Is there a community for displaced characters? Like if a character was in a game, the game died, they want to get into a game again? Or any communities where a character could put themselves out there for one-on-one play? This is a Buffyverse character, if that helps. Let me know.

I actually had time to read a fic this week, which was awesome, and now you should read it too! I already recced it on Tumblr but here you go, if you aren't following me over there Ceteris Paribus (All Else Being Equal) by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy

Here's what I wrote for the rec )

Also, if you want, I uploaded Plants vs Zombies, a computer game if anyone wants it and Veronika Decides to Die. Enjoy!

Lastly, under the cut, a hilarious Buffy video that [livejournal.com profile] coalitiongirl linked on Tumblr.

Prepare to laugh )
