This journal isn't friends-locked or anything.

This is the only entry I've ever written.

That calendar thing is nothing but a pack of lies.

Comment to be added.

newsflash: i still have weird dreams

Aug. 17th, 2007 | 08:26 am

The following is my attempt to fic a dream I had last night. This is the tail end of a longer dream in which I was various participants and then, afterward, watching a movie in which all this took place. (Here I was the girl narrator and then, after...uh...stuff happens, the moviegoer.) It's stylized a very little bit for description and such, but mostly it's intact. ('Style-thingies'=Turnstiles. :P)

'wharoodoong,' baby talkCollapse )

Ugly male celebrities. Go.

(The uglier, the better. I don't want ugly-sexy; I'm looking for a face only an open-minded biological mother could love. Bonus points for ugly people between the ages of 25 and 35.)

Submissions will be accepted until I have my own copy in my hot little hands and thus can say I am officially not bullshitting you. I'm not, though. If they screw me over on my prize somehow I'll just have to eat it. ;)

Just got back from seeing 300. If you don't want to take the time to read the following, this about sums it up: It's not a film for everyone, but those it is for should see it in IMAX. I don't care what kind of home theater setup you have--don't wait for the DVD. It's a moral imperative.

there are no spoilers if it's not a movieCollapse )


[Edit] Before the movie started we got theater muzak versions of "Over the Rainbow", "Scarborough Fair", the music I know only as the UPMC music (ARRRRGH) but what MUST be from some movie (I'm hoping), the main Harry Potter theme, and pieces from "The Princess Bride" and "Amélie". It was kinda hilarious and random.

[Edit 2] Okay, so I changed my rating a bit. Slightly. Having discussed it a lot I decided I wasn't giving enough credit for what really was original and beautiful about the film. So there.

Fanfic 100

Feb. 12th, 2007 | 09:30 am
mood: creativecreative

I decided to sort of unofficially do The Ultimate FanFic Challenge just to get some creative juices flowing (or to see whether I have any creative juices). It's unofficial in that I don't particularly feel like joining the community and labeling posts and such, but I still liked the idea. I may or may not get very far in this but hopefully it will be fun.

The theme will be Chapter 21 - Deleted Scenes. (When in doubt, steal what you know? Or something?) I am no writer, but oh well.

the promptsCollapse )

[Edit] I moved the first ficlet to a new community so these won't clog up my personal journal.

Attn: Pittsburghers

mood: thirstyin withdrawal

Does anyone know where I can find Pepsi One in Pittsburgh or the surrounding areas? I have been to a billion Giant Eagles, various drug stores, that Shur Save on Liberty that's stuck in 1977, beer/soda distributors, Target, etc. and can no longer find it anywhere. I am prepared to buy out a store's entire stock if that's the only way I can guarantee having enough on hand to last me awhile. I WILL PAY YOU Monopoly MONEY IF YOU FIND ME SOME. I've been drinking Diet Rite (♥ RC Cola) in my desperation. Don't make me submit to the disconcerting aftertaste that is Coke Zero. omg. D:

Bloody hell, this is useful. I've been trying to figure out how to do this for ages.

Using Firefox profiles (in Windows) as a substitute for allowing multiple concurrent session cookies
(Firefox does not currently allow multiple concurrent sessions, so this work-around is excellent for people like me who find it necessary to be logged into a billion journals at once.)

1. Start > Run > firefox.exe -p "newProfileName"

2. Follow the steps to create a new profile

3. Repeat as necessary for the desired number of sessions

4. Start > Settings > Control Panel > System > Advanced > Environment Variables

5. Under "System variables", click "New"

6. Variable name: MOZ_NO_REMOTE   Variable value: 1
screencapCollapse )

7. Click "OK" three times

8. Create separate shortcuts for each profile. The "Target" field for each shortcut should read something like this:"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p "newProfileName"

Finally got around to downloading watching V for Vendetta. It was very good. I liked it a lot. Hugo is Sex. The End. :D

Now it's time to rant. RANT RANT RANT RANT.

The Descent, or Fuck US Film Distributors, Nay, Nostril-Rape Them With Red-Hot PokersCollapse )

And Now For Something Completely Different (because I became a little furious just thinking about that again and also, I really have to stop capitalizing mid-sentence), I give you Beowulf and Grendel, or US Film Distributors Do Something RightCollapse )
