Mighty Good Cornflakes, Mrs. McDunnough



Okay, I did not cut a whore. Or a h0r. Or however the kids spell it. p0wned. Huh?

And if you know the subject header, I enjoy you. I ENJOY YOU. I haven't watched "Raising Arizona" - oops! cat's out of the bag! - in years. Need to fix that. "Sometimes I get the menstral cramps real hard." "You ate sand?" "Hi? You go back in there and get me one of them babies - they got more'n they can handle!" "Ed? You ever... get the feeling of a big weight - pressing down on your chest?" "Yeah, yeah I hear you. But I told Dottie she needs to lose some weight." "You take that diaper off your head - and put it BACK on your sister!"

Good morning! I'll be singing that yodel all day. AWESOME.

In other news: I am a SPAZZ. Actually, that's an ongoing story, so skip it. Fantastic article in today's paper: cocaine ALTERS genes. Okay, that's interesting to me, but dude! Do you have any idea how HARD it is to alter genes? Minus radiation? Or free radicals? Or-. Okay, I'm losing you. But think about it: cocaine use alters your genetic makeup. Not your gametes - you aren't passing this on - they don't think - but this explains why it's hard to kick the habit. Cocaine MAKES your body need it - at the genetic level. Fascinating stuff.

How much do you love me for talking about hicks in Arizona kidnapping a baby to genetic mutation? No? I'm doing that self-congratulatory thing? Huh. LOTS OF COFFEE THIS MORNING. Ahem.

How about a fic rec? Now, since only two of you read my foray into other fandoms this weekend, I get that most of you on my flist are die-hard buffy/angel fans. But... Hmm. I am enjoying the other places. This weekend (after much poking from two of my RPG pals - thank you!) I FINALLY read some of firesignwriter's PotC fic. HOLY CRAP. I'm not that interested in pirate ships and the like, but I DO like reading thought-out 3D characterization with excellent dialogue. crazydiamondsue? I'm looking at you. DIALOGUE. So good your toes will curl. With the funny! And the snark! And the elegant hotness! So far this girl has written the best Jack Sparrow I've come across, which isn't saying much - I've only been dipping my toes in for a brief period. Feel free to spam me with recs, BTW.

This in particular is just really wonderful. I AM TELLING YOU ALL: READ IT. If you enjoy the snark...

More links you say? FINE. Have fun knocking George Bush around. HA! You can hit refresh and make it anew over and over and ...

Last: tried to watch "Land of the Dead" this weekend. Meh. "28 Days Later" and "Shaun of the Dead" remain my favorite zombie movies. Except: 28 Days Later is NOT a zombie movie. Which proves my point that zombie movies suck. Except for Shaun of the Dead. Because it's really really funny and kinda scary in some places.

TODAY: do jazz hands. I am looking at you, entrenous88. At some point, you (general you) should do a hop/skip and either jazz hands, or rainbow hands with spirit fingers. It's Monday! And a cold one! Might as well make it fun. *rondule - hands up in air - cross arms -jazz hands!*

Psst!

Stoney, that link I sent you for "The Matter of Rules" series? Gah, don't read it. The font burns my retinas. Here's a much better link to the same story:

Ugh. Land of the Dead was Romero's latest re-tread into the zombie world. It's... graphic without the FUN of it being graphic. I made it about 10 minutes. Shaun of the Dead is so wonderfully deadpan. Tell me what you think when you've seen it!

Oh, we also watched "Conspiracy" this weekend. About the establishment of the Final SOlution by the Nazi government: Colin Firth, Kenneth Brannagh, Stanley Tucci... You couldn't ask for a better cast. Hard facts, hard watching in places, absolutely fascinating from a historical aspect. This is based on a REAL meeting. My husband and I wondered how many takes they had to do in some places - like, I wonder if Colin Firth needed a moment to collect himself after spouting some of those lines, you know?

Have not seen Event Horizon. It looked kind of... lame. I have a bunch of Japanese movies coming on my Netflix queue - they've been routinely freaking me out. Ju-On? Ringu? Audition? GAH. Then there's the old standby: Psycho, Rear Window - that movie STILL gives me chills.

Ooh! I should add Nosteratu! Did you see Shadows of the Dark? (I think that's it) WIth Willem Dafoe and Eddie Izzard and Malcovich? Holy crap, that's wonderfully funny and creepy and beautiful. It's a "making of" Nosferatu. So, so great.

I must see that movie.

Which? ALL are good. Except the zombie movie. Lame.

(If it's Conspiracy... They are all clean cut and smiling VIPERS. Excellent. It's like a wonderful play.)

::jazz hands!::

Jazz hands are LOVE!

I mentioned jazz hands to my mother this summer, and she didn't know what they were. She thought I was crazy. (Well....) There were demonstrations, yes.

JAZZ HANDS. And Barrel rolls. And so on. WHEE!! It's statistically impossible for you to stay unhappy when performing jazz hands or various Broadway musical moves.

And never forget that 47% of statistics are made up.

Hi, Sam!! *squishes you* I know you are into Hornblower... Any PotC love there?

The fandom as a whole? Oh yes. Crossovers and such. Me personally? Not so much...liked the movie (who wouldn't???), but no desire to write/read fic from it.

Ahhhh, return of the Halloween icon! ::loves::
stoney321
Oct. 24th, 2005 09:22 am (UTC)
Wheee!! Halloweeny goodness. And you know... there aren't many fandoms for which I'm interested in their fic, to be honest. There are a handful of SW writers I enjoy, but so much of it is unnecessary or just plain crap, I avoid it.

And... my inclination is to go the RPS route, because of the whole broken inside part - so I poked around in some fics to get a feel for the nuances of the fandom. And...

The story I recced up there? Take out the smex (soft R - more sensual than hard core) and it reads like a script. You can HEAR Depp.

I don't know that I'll jump into the fandom all the way, but I do like being surprised by a fantastic story - and you don't have to know much to enjoy this fic.

That's another thing that is frustrating for me: I know so many good writers in other fandoms, but I don't know what they're talking about so I can't enjoy the story. (That would be you - I LOVE your writing, but I have GOT to catch up on shows!!)

Dude, Hornblower fandom seems to fear teh RPS. Which is sad, because the actors are just terribly pretty and should SO be Doing It.

Here endeth the comment of depth and insightfulness. ::nod::

You know I will do the jazz hands! And a jazz square!
stoney321
Oct. 24th, 2005 09:23 am (UTC)
If I worked in your office, I would randomly promenade around you. Then I would honor my corner. *bow* And honor my partner *bow* Because square dancing is fun.

*does the Charleston for good measure*

Wheee! Square dancing I only got to do in elementary school. And maybe a little at gay bars. But I would love to do more!

*do-si-dos*
stoney321
Oct. 24th, 2005 09:28 am (UTC)
And of course I think of the Hatfields and McCoy Buggs Bunny cartoon where Buggs foils them by calling out a square dance and promenades them into a haybaler.

"Whirl, whirl, twist and twirl!
Jump up and down just like a squirrel.
Now don't you cuss and don't you swear!
Just jump on in and form a square!"

Thak you! I keep trying to tell people that 28 Days Later is NOT a Zombie movie. *sighs* It's like explaining that American Psycho is not a horror movie.
Which proves my point that zombie movies suck. What about the original Night of the Living Dead, although that's really not about zombies . . .Hmm you may have a point. But then most good horror movies are really about other issues not the monsters. At least IMHO, which is not so humble. *still proud that she convinced her Feminist Theory proffessor that there was a pro-women element to slasher movies*
And you found GOOD PotC *runs to read*

IT IS NOT A ZOMBIE MOVIE! They are not zombies! They are INFECTED and not dead yet!

Zombie movies DO suck. Shaun of the dead is terrific, though.

Go read it! Anything of hers! The Moon-somthing series is next on my list.

YOU ARE RIGHT. Man, I just left you hanging on YIM, didn't I? I got SUCKED IN to really good fic, yo.

I'll take these Huggies and... whatever cash you have in that drawer.

Gosh darn it. G.W. keeps falling for a while, and then hanging right up. I got him to fall a good long while for a minute there, and he did get banged up right good, and then dang it, he got hanged up again on one of them durn bubbles.

Is that from the movie???? *thought I knew every freaking line in that flick*

Oct. 24th, 2005 01:06 pm (UTC)
Lord no. It ain't from the movie. I was gripin' about how hard it is to make GW keep bouncin' and bouncin' in that game you done tole' us about.

It be even more fun if Karl Rove were in there bouncin' around too. And they could clonk heads and each one of their three brain cells could dribble out and splatter all over.

I do love Raisin' Arizona. I saw that with my parents a hunnert years ago. We was laughin' so hard, it near kilt all three of us. I truly think my daddy came close to a heart attack that day, jist from laughin'.

Have you seen Blood Simple?

GODDAMNED LJ! It's been a douche lately.

I can't drive 55 - but I love you. "Aw! He's so rommmanick!"

COCAINE. Jazz Hands. Bush. It's CODE. (really? you didn't enjoy Depp? That - and JackDav - are the reason I enjoy that. I fast forward through scenes where they aren't. Depp's pirate cracks me up. Just... like he is constantly drunk and has a joke on his lips - but he can't remember how to get started. Love it.)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
