WOOOOOOOOOOO. So instead of going to my comics shop today, I slept in super late and failed to bathe and dicked around on the internet instead. I realized this means that I'm going to have two issues of Brightest Day waiting for me when I go in next Wednesday to beg my comics shop to let me stop buying it because it is horrible.

Speaking of DC Comics being horrible! You have probably all seen Ian Sattler not understanding that unlike actual people of color, BLUE PEOPLE AREN'T REAL and Bill Willingham actually saying IN PUBLIC "I wanted to gun down those girls who kept asking about the memorial case [for Spoiler]." Who lets these guys out of the house and onto panels at conventions? I MEAN REALLY.

My LiveJournal paid account came up, and I went ahead and bought a six month account at both LiveJournal and Dreamwidth. The problem is that I read a lot of people in comics fandom and in fancademia at Dreamwidth, but pretty much all of my real person fandoms are still at LiveJournal, which makes moving to one or the other kind of difficult.

I really do need to work on porting all my icons over to DW, and on cleaning up my friends lists, though. I think I will keep everyone I read on DW on my friends list at LJ, but I will take them off my default view.

Also! If you have a Dreamwidth account and would prefer I read you there, let me know and I will add you! I try to comment at DW for people who crosspost, but SOMETIMES I FORGET.

Also also! Dreamwidth folks: What communities do I need to be following there? I have decided I need to start working on being more chatty in fandom. Alternately, who should I be reading on DW or LJ that I am not? I want to meet new people!

Apparently the new Bravo show, Work of Art is starting tonight after Top Chef Masters. I do not have high hopes for it, but I will probably watch it anyway!

I am slowly but surely unlocking things in Lego Batman, which I have started playing again for no good reason. I actually found the final missing minikit canister in two scenes in the past week, and finally actually finished the minigame version of Gotham Streets (Villain), although not with a good enough time to unlock anything. Blah blah blah, I am bad at videogames.

I am less bad at Echo Bazaar because the point is doing stupid things and seeing what happens. Example! )

Tonight, Evan Lysacek did a "futuristic" dance on DWTS in which he and Anna were vaguely robotic, and Anna was possibly Leeloo, and Evan kept doing terrible robot voices in the training segments. And the same day, [ profile] baylop wrote The Most Important Thing, which is a story in which Evan Lysacek is secretly a robot. He has little robot feelings, and I realize that that sounds totally condescending, but whatever, it's Evan Lysacek, and the actual story was sort of bittersweet and I love stories where people are secretly robots. The story has a lot of issues with homophones, so if that sort of thing bugs you, beware, but I enjoyed it. But again, robots and my feelings about them.

I have been failing to finish the last Fionavar Tapestry book, and I don't know why, because I want to know what happens. Possibly because I am sure things will somehow manage to get worse and more tragic for our intrepid heroes.

Today I also got my weekly e-mail from my comics shop telling me what comes out this week. I AM SUPER EXCITED about this week's comics. I hope they don't suck!

edit: Some other things! I am going to be slowly working my way through the [ profile] comicsbigbang stories over the next however long, and it might take me a while to read all the ones that sound good, but I WILL READ THEM EVENTUALLY OKAY.

I am shortly going to start sorting out who I'm following on Dreamwidth and start taking people off my Default View on LJ so I'm not getting double posts by looking at both friends lists. I'm also going to start, like, actually giving people access/subscribing back on Dreamwidth, which I have been bad about doing because I don't get notifications like I do on LJ. I'm not ignoring you, I promise!

Apparently my comics shop is using its space Wednesday evenings for D&D nonsense! So when I went to get my comics today, I wound up staying an extra hour and building a Psion to play later. Good times. One day I will play something ridiculous as opposed to just playing psychics all the time, although at least this time I'm playing a telekinetic? :D? The other guy who was there was whining about Fourth Edition apparently not having half-Drow as an option and was all "What about Drizz't?" This is going to be so bad.

I am kind of thinking of picking up some GURPS books since Secret Canadians want me to at least try GMing it or something. On the other hand, I'll have to get a good look at the differences between third and fourth edition there, because all my experience playing was in third. I don't know. WE SHALL SEE.

I am currently watching America's Next Top Model and Raina has little old lady swears and it makes me laugh really hard, you guys.

So today my co-worker wanted to talk to me about Dancing with the Stars, which is hilarious because she is very much not the sort of person who I thought would be into DWTS. Anyway, she is also a total Ochocinco!wife, and also really on Team Pamela, so we had a lot to talk about, but my favorite part was when she was like "I really want to like that figure skating guy, but he's just so... robotic."

And I had to tell her that he actually has like a hundred times more emotions on DWTS than he does in actual figure skating things and she did not believe me. My point here is that I need a story where Evan Lysacek is an actual android so badly.

Also, DWTS Results )

In magical telepathic horse news, I am partway through Winds of Fury. So far the best part is Skif being all worried that once Nyara is around lots of other people she won't want to be around him anymore, and Ghost!Stefen being like "QUIT BEING SUCH AN ASS, ASS." Bard Stefen, you are so great.

Also, I would read Dawnfire/Tre'valen/An'desha. However you'd make that work. I like how Dawnfire and Tre'valen are actually married on the astral plane, by the way.

IMPORTANT QUESTION FOR DC COMICS PEOPLE: Can J'onn Jonzz phase other objects with him, or just phase himself?
