You clearly are very desperate to launch a spin-off series. What is this, the third time you've introduced a bunch of fresh young faces in the hope that fans will latch onto them? I remember the werewolf kids and the mini-shorts hunter girl, but barely, because they were NOT compelling at all. This week's trial protagonist was much better, I'll grant you that--but still? You want to recreate the same addictive dynamic that Sam and Dean bring to the show? You need actors that can carry the same weight as Jared and Jensen.

Maybe, if you hadn't killed Kevin off, he could have starred in his own rogue prophet series. The fandom already loves Osric Chau to bits. Haven't you noticed how great he is on Twitter? Speaking of greatness and Twitter, Misha could easily hold his own in a Castiel-focused spin-off. What if you set the timeline as pre-Team Free Will, showing all the events that molded Castiel into the angel that placed his bets on the Winchesters? What if you threw Gabriel and Balthazar into the mix? I'll bet the fangirls would go wild.

Ranting and dreaming aside, next week's episode looks awesome. :)

ETA: Yikes, on second thought, maybe I shouldn't be so harsh. Still . . . it's frustrating. I felt like I was watching The Vampire Diaries set in the Supernatural universe, and I'm really not into that show at all.

I don't know if it's cute or pathetic that buying a new broom made me happy today. Also can't decide if I'm tired or lazy, or both.

But I do know that I can't wait to see Maleficent.

Alright, off I go to coax my writing muse into cooperating. Every time I try to buckle down, my brain decides to freak out like C-3PO.

Don't mind me, I'm just sitting here, impatiently waiting for my Hydra CD to come in the mail. YouTube is not enough right now. I kinda miss the old style Within Temptation. "Truth Beneath the Rose" and "Hand of Sorrow" and "Ice Queen" are the first things that strike me when I think of my favorite band. But at the same time, I love how their current musical style is a strong tribute to the rock style of the 80's. I want to be able to write books in multiple genres, so I guess I can't blame them for experimenting with different styles, too. :)

And don't get me started on G's upcoming single. I'm super excited, but more and more, I'm worried I'll be a little disappointed. For me (and quite a few other fans), his masterpiece will always be Last Song. But since G himself wants this song to carry his memory, to be his defining song, in a way . . . I don't know. I don't know. I think, as we say on Tumblr, I have too many feelz. (Yes, that's feelz with the z. It's more emotive. LOL.)

To bring up the subject of writing again, I'm not happy where I'm at with my main WIP. The story has gotten ridiculously long and complex, and I originally decided to split it into two books. But there's just too much material. I'm afraid I'm looking at a trilogy--a very disjointed trilogy that's taken almost four years of my life, on and off. And I feel like it'll take four more years to get it up to snuff. But I'm determined to try to finish it this year, if only so I can move on to another project. It's just not easy to do so while juggling two jobs.

Interestingly, this recurring customer at work, whom I always forget, always remembers me and asks about my writing. (Actually, there may be more than one. Like I say, I forget them easily.) I don't know whether to call that sweet or scary. I can't quite read her, so I have no idea how to react, and I just smile and say thanks. I don't like feeling completely unable to gauge people, because it makes me feel vulnerable. Ah, well.

I thought it was Tuesday today. Since Tuesday always means morning shift at my call center job, I drove to the call center. And didn't realize it was Monday until my supervisor told me. Commence headdesk, apologies to bosses at both jobs, and a hurried drive to my retail job, luckily clocking in only 30 minutes late. People joked, and that was it. But boy, did my pride STING. Here I'm trying to be extra competent to land a coordinator position (which I'd been expecting for what, a year now, pending availability?).

I'm just going to blame my Tuesday fixation on Supernatural. Winchesters and resident angel of mischief, you life-ruiners, you. (LOVED the first episode, BTW, though I don't like Hael at all and semi-like Ezekiel. Not excited that all new female characters get on my nerves, except Charlie.)

I just hope and pray I don't wake up tomorrow and think it's Wednesday. O.O

Now that you've finally joined Pinterest, get off that brand-new account and STAY OFF. You are already addicted to Tumblr on top of LJ, you do not need more opportunity to waste time. I really mean it--ZOMG, is that another picture set of eyeliner styles just begging to be tried out?

This could get complicated.
gothrockrulz: (purgatory dean)
Not just Season One. Not just Season Two. But also Season Three. There are a bazillion reasons why I love the show, and here is one of them.

Yes, indeed. Also, he's the very reason that, after the finale, like everybody else, my emotions can only be summed up in GIF form--this GIF in particular.

I swear, the only show that tortures its fans more is Supernatural.

To the many online dating websites out there . . . I cordially hate all your ads in all mediums. Especially those of Christian Mingle. Not preacher's wife material, sorry--I'm cynical and anti-social, at best. If I want to go hunting for a man, I'll do it my own way, thanks. (And that's putting it mildly.) Leave me alone.

On a more positive note, I had a fun conversation with a customer at work about Hinduism, Sarah Brightman, writing, and photography--especially sunset photos. I found out she's won a lot of contests and has been featured on the local public TV station. I hope I didn't talk her ear off--once I get comfortable talking, I can't shut up. LOL. Little chats like that make working retail a little less of a pain. :)
gothrockrulz: (zomg!)
SUPERNATURAL IS COMING BACK TONIGHT!!! ETA: I had forgotten the correct date. It's actually not coming back to the 16th. WHY?!?!

Excitement abounds! I've been on serious withdrawal for the last couple weeks or so. How serious? I blame my now out-of-control Tokio Hotel addiction on that break. *glares good-naturedly*

Is it 8:00 yet? Is it the 16th yet?! I can't take this suspense much longer!
gothrockrulz: (genesis rhapsodos)
I have heard of both Tokio Hotel and Cinema Bizarre, and have heard examples of each band's music style, without being affected. So why have I been listening to a few songs from each over and over for two days solid? Oh, no, this is how obsession begins . . .

For those of you who have seen The Hobbit, read this script spoof. NOW. It's the funniest thing I have read in a long, long time. I would write one myself, but this lady seems to have covered everything spot-on.

Now back to editing. Note to self: research the history of ottomans. You've put that off for far too long.
gothrockrulz: (Hobbit dwarves)
The cast was perfection. The cast was amazing. The cast was every bit as good as it was in LotR (especially since a lot of old friends were able to come round again).

Oh, and did I mention that the cast made the movie?

I had high expectations for Martin Freeman and Richard Armitage already, thanks to Martin's performance as John Watson in BBC's Sherlock and Armitage's roles in North and South and Spooks.

But they still blew me away completely. I think I'll be in a mild state of pleasant shock for a while.

More excited fan rambling . . . )

Some fans were wondering if anybody would be able to pull off the whole "heartthrob" Dwarf thing. Guess what? Thorin sure did. I'm now a believer, albeit a bewildered one.
gothrockrulz: (morticia)
I've got to get this out now, while the memory is at its freshest. I really do wish I had a better memory--I'm terrified that this will dwindle to a vague happy haze all too soon.

Sorry it took me a day more than I promised--this turned out to be way longer than I'd expected, and our family's wifi turned out to be way more touchy than I'd expected. (JFYI, I took a few pictures and a couple snippets of video, but it wasn't much. Mostly, I just have my thoughts and videos from other people on YouTube.)

Here we go . . . )
gothrockrulz: (nuada)
The rant:

I was talking to a new hire at the retail store today. She's a sweet girl, nervous about her modeling gig directly after her shift at the store, and I did my best to encourage her. Then she said the gig was for a Victoria's Secret ad. The girl couldn't be older than 16, and looked like 13 or 14--and she was scared stiff of modeling underwear. That really upset me. Am I the only one disturbed by the idea of a girl under 18 posing for pictures in lingerie? Or am I just a prude? (I think I'm a prude, regardless. I wouldn't pose in lingerie at any age. It's one of the reasons why I'm not a model myself in the first place--though, naturally, I can't say THAT to people who urge me to be a model.)

The rave:


My brothers are always going to this concert and that with friends, because they all are fans of bands that actually come through town frequently. (It's the only thing I regret about being a fan of foreign bands--makes it harder to see them live.) FINALLY, one of my bands is coming!

I don't know what to do with myself, I'm so excited! I can't begin to say how much I admire Simone Simons as a vocalist. She's incredible! How early should I buy tickets? Should I request just that day off at work, or should I request several, because I'll be too excited to work? Gah, decisions, decisions.

All I know is, right now, I need more party!GIFS. :D

I'm going to have a busy work schedule this week, because the lady who usually works in jewelry will be on vacation. So I'm basically going to be in jewelry all week long, more or less. Do not want.

It's not that I hate working in jewelry--I hate being tempted to buy all sorts of beautiful crap while working in jewelry. Hello, girl, you can't spend your paycheck before you even get it. We're supposed to be saving. (Am I the only one that lectures myself in multiple persons? Please tell me I'm not.)
gothrockrulz: (howdy sam and dean)
My brother and I pooled our money into getting a semi-expensive camera. (Bro describes it as high-end personal, low-end pro.) All of us kids want a nice camera to develop our skills before we go into the really expensive stuff, so we're getting one to share. That way I can take pictures for sketching and for fun; one brother can spam Instagram, or whatever it's called, with pro wannabe photos; and the another brother can create his own HQ textures for his 3D graphics. (I have three brothers. None of them are named Darrell.)

Now we're going crazy waiting for it to ship. We can't wait to start taking pictures of everything we see!

More rambling . . . )
gothrockrulz: (Default)
I actually got a working moodtheme up! Yay! (So glad someone gave me a tip to help me in the right direction.)

My cousin's baby came last week (or was it the week before?), and today we got to see Junior for the first time.

More family and personal life rambling . . . )
gothrockrulz: (nuada)

I don't know how they do it, but Stream of Passion seems to have a knack to encapsulate how my imagination perfectly in their songs. Granted, pretty much every band I enjoy listening to can do that, but Stream of Passion seems to do it the most accurately. This song puts me in mind of a story I began mulling over in 2006 (same time I first got into Star Trek TOS), but dropped, because the direction it was going was scaring me.

But then, this song, along with a few from Evanescence, brought everything back in a rush. Now I've promised my muse I'll work on the story eventually. (Emphasis on eventually.) Speaking of writing . . . my notebook's calling me.

But, first, note to self: remember to take off fake engagement ring before church evening service. It serves its purpose warding old men off at work, but it's totally different ballgame in the sanctuary. LOL.
gothrockrulz: (hotch awesome)
Blegh. Where is the year going? I feel as if I haven't gotten anything done yet--especially as I'm watching a ton of people struggling to stay afloat during finals, my BFF and brother included. Kinda makes me feel guilty that I've got it easy by comparison--but, hey, working part-time and writing the rest of the time, instead of going to college, was my choice. I'll keep at it, and see if my hunch that I can pursue a writing career my own way will turn out right. (Of course, keeping that "writing the rest of the time" literal and fresh in my mind would help. I tend to get distracted too easily.)

Speaking of distractions, perhaps I should pretend the internet is down for a while. That might help. I saw an icon somewhere that read something like this: "The key to being a successful writer is keeping off the internet." True, that.

But, before I go, I've got to post this video. It's an ad-lib moment from the filming of season 4 of Supernatural. THIS is the best example of why I'm hopelessly addicted to this show. Jensen Ackles is one of the most awesome dorks on the planet, and I will never be able to hear "Eye of the Tiger" again without giggling.

I just saw the midnight premiere of The Hunger Games with my real life best friend forever.


I don't think I'll get any sleep tonight; I'm way too wired!
