Links! Praise to the Friend!

So I have this awesome flist, did you know? I do. One person in PARTICULAR is so awesome, I can barely contain my joy. My friend "A" uploaded "This Life +10" for me (she didn't even know what it WAS) AND is hosting it on her server for all of my friends to share!!  I mean, COME ON!  That's just the coolest.  And since her bandwidth is exponential, SPREAD THE WORD!  If you know someone who wants it, share the link.  It won't be around for long, so get it while you can.  (I'm making a torrent later this week and hosting that, so it'll be around somehow.)  It's 750 mb, so be prepared.  And tell my friend "A" how great she is!!  THIS IS THE NEW AND TESTED FILE THAT WORKS.

Friday Night Lights

Okay, are you KIDDING ME??  Matt?!  Oh, Matt, Matt with your dad who doesn't love you enough to want to be home, who wants to shirk his responsibility to his family because it's EASIER IN IRAQ.  He gets to take orders and not be in charge, and when he's home, he has a son he has to pay attention to, and a mother that's losing it.  And Matt, who so desperately wants to not be in charge (he's 16!  16!!) is PAYING RENT.  Caring for his grandmother.  Going to school.  Getting good grades.  Oh, Matt.  I was so glad he missed that big pass in the game, too. 

JULIE.  Julie aching for him, but being a kid, she doesn't know how to make it better other than wanting him "to not go away."  Matt sitting in the backyard toying with his hoodie while Coach tried to build him up.  There's something there with Coach Taylor's dad, agreed?  No?

And LANDRY!  There needs to be more Landry in every show, because the kid is so damn funny.  I've said it before, I'll say it again: he's the poor man's homelier Matt Damon.  I LOVED that he read TIm his homework reading.  The whole thing!  And then his reaction to Tim, "You just read a book about two best friends who have a TRAGEDY take away their dreams, and you don't have ANYTHING that can relate to it?"  (Who wants to bet that Tim thinks he's Lennie, and agrees that he's slow and HATES IT?)  And now I'm all ashamed I didn't make the Steinbeck comparison, myself.  They even start out the same!!  And Lennie has a "love of soft things?"  And kills them on accident?  (True, Tim's not a murderer, but the metaphorical interpretation stands.)  Oh, and Tim wants "George" (Jason) to kill him.  To end him, because it's a KINDNESS.  And Of Mice And Men is a vicious cycle, you can't get out of it, and HELLO SMALL RUN DOWN TOWN.  GAH!!!

Don't tell me this show isn't clever or good.  I won't believe you.  It's NOT about football and Jesus.  It's about a small town where there's .... football and Jesus.  And a whole hell of a lot more. 

And again, Connie (Coach Taylor's wife) continues to be awesome.  I love her smartassed, "I'll just clean up the rest of this, huh?"  And fuming until she hears his new potential job, and she's all over the love of her man.  That woman is hot, too.  I want to look like that, Jeez.
And tonight's The Office, and 30 Rock, and SCRUBS!!  Also, my Sally VonSchtupp comes back from the vet today and is going to be a sick pup, and I miss her!!!  Her leetle bed is all readies with toys and her "baby" (a squeaky duck) and a blankie and I WANT MY PUP.   (Also, is Seamagic dildoes for everyone, too?  Wtf?)

And hahahaha, David Cross.  I miss The Show.

I have no words for my love of FNL and Matt Saracen. NO WORDS, STONEY.

LEE, I LOVE THAT KID. I love that kid. That is the boy I would have dated back then (not Jason or Tim) and I LOVE HIM.

Oh, and let's talk about how raw and dirty it is with handicapped people! I mean, show me a tv program that tackles raw issues like that! How DO you have sex again when you've a paraplegic? I didn't know there was quad-porn, like, made by MEDICAL PEOPLE. That's cool!

(Oh, Lyla.) And I like that people don't say "the right thing." Like, they're not getting all Dawson's Creek with the perfect words no teenagers would ever say. It makes it frustrating and REAL. <333

I wondered about the parental advisory at the beginning of the show and thought, "Dude, is it going all HBO on us?" AND IT TOTALLY DID. I loved the Lyla/Jason subplot because it didn't flinch away from how awkward/confusing/raw/frustrating paraplegic sex is. And Jason not wanting to admit it and Lyla just wanting to hold on to something normal, something that they used to do before Jason was hurt. Gah. SO GOOD.

And Julie! Julie/Matt! Julie not knowing what to say to Matt, Matt snapping at her because he's so lost and confused and JUST WANTS TO NOT HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THE WORLD FOR ONCE.

Coach Taylor/Connie is one of the most realistic, loving, passionate couples on television. The bit about the garbage and the frustration/tension underlying that simple scene moving beautifully into the coaching call and showing that through everything, they're together? I LOVE THIS SHOW.

*hearts this show times infinity*

Friday Night Lights was just...

Oh Matt.

He's a more responsible person than his father. He's been doing so many things at once, trying not to screw it all up and on top of that he's been taking care of his grandma. His dad was home three seconds and was already yelling at her. WTF? It's not like she can help it. I think he needs to be emancipated from his father. He doesn't need that man in his life right now.

Landry and Tim... *hee* The music, and the yelling on the stands, and the whole Of Mice and Men thing. Great stuff.

I love this show.

I GASPED when his dad mentioned sending him to Oklahoma! (Not to mention that's a death knell for a Texan, hahaha.)

Oh how could I have forgotten Landry's BAND! Hee hee!! And Julie sighing and saying they'd have to go, and Matt with "if we don't, I don't think anyone else will come." LANDRY. Haha. He just keeps plugging along...

I love this show - it's SO RICH.

Woohoo! This Life!

May I ask, is that that same version that's on UKNova?
stoney321
Jan. 4th, 2007 06:17 pm (UTC)
Hmmm. I don't think so. I know she has "ways" of getting things, but I don't believe it came from that site. (I know they have a torrent up, but I'm not a member.)

Was there a problem with the file or something?

No, not at all...just...I'm crazy. And if they aare different versions, I'd probably get both and see where JackDav's hair looks more ruffle-able. *cough* But since they're both about the same size, they're probably very similar quality.

Yes, it's the only version out there right now, I think. I didn't get it specifically from there, but I believe that the info said it was acquired at UKNova.

How could anyone not want to be best friends with Landry? He's awesome.

Also - I'm more and more thinking that Matt Saracen is what Eric Taylor was in High School.

Of course your dingdong went soft. It's trying to protect you.

Possibly best line ever. Herc = made of win.

"Matt Saracen is what Eric Taylor was in High School." I was thinking the SAME THING! And Julie is is in Connie role, especially at the Baptist church dinner? And at the end of the game?

Awww. And yeah, Herc is caustic awesomeness.

LANDRY! I love that boy more with each episode. His band! Wow, I think I was at that gig last week...

MATT! With so many balls in the air, and his dad breezes into town and just cleans the gutters?! Wants to ship Matt off to Oklahoma?! Painful and beautifully acted.

This show is so smart and heart felt without feeling self important or preachy it just makes me happy to watch the characters' lives unfold even when their lives are sucking out loud.

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.
