My interactions with comic book heroes has mostly been through cartoons and movies. I can't say I was encouraged to seek out the comics as a kid, but I was never discouraged from being all about X-Men and Superman and Batman and the Hulk and the Flash. And as it turns out, I tend to have issues with the ink used for comics hurting my eyes/giving me headaches. And there's that pesky think with having a birth defect that makes know, hard. ANYWAY...

D and I were talking about comics adapted to tv and movies and our favorites, and we both loved The Flash as kids. He wants me to write a Mad Men style/era Flash movie. Uhm...ok, sure, I'll get right on that. It would be cool to see, though. But comic book history daunting.

And this brings me to the part where I mention that I finally saw Thor. I'm not gonna lie, y'all, I didn't love The Avengers. It was entertaining, but I wasn't like OMG BEST MOVIE EVER!!! I hadn't seen Thor, though, so I was like "Uhm, why are the super heroes and the Transformers fighting over the blue all-spark?" Because, I'm sorry, but visually that's what I got from it. But I did love Thor and Iron Man and Banner/Hulk. More plz. So, I made D rent Thor.

Again, I wasn't wowed, but I so see the reason people write slash. And I really loved the visuals of Asgard (though, Thor's armor looks better in Avengers and his merry band of friends just was awful) and what was going on with that part of the story. The only thing I needed from the earth parts was Stellan Skarsgard, yes plz.

Then D and I had a discussion for hours about how we would have cast the movie. It mainly revolved around Odin, since neither of us think Anthony Hopkins is the right choice. My vote was for Jeremy Ions or Geoffrey Rush. I know Odin is the All Father, but Hopkins' voice is too fatherly, and he just looks too old and plump. I picture Odin as having a voice more like Rush or Irons and looking weathered, thin and commanding. Idk. It was a VERY SERIOUS discussion.

And in the end, that's how we got back to the Flash. I know...I'm so late to the party here. But I want more Tony Stark/Bruce Banner. Right now.

Is anyone else watching?

I just finished the second book and started the third, so my experience with this season is a little different. Last season, it'd been a couple of years since I'd read the first book, so it was far enough removed that I didn't catch a lot of the differences. This season not so much.

Cut for thoughts that involve spoilers, probably. )

Due to being over this day and dealing with rl friends SUCKING majorly...have an impromptu comment!fic fest/fanworks creation whatever at [personal profile] cleo and tell your friends.

...please come play?

I've been creatively drained lately. I have several unfinished fics and I'm really just...stalled on my YA novel. So...give me some general prompts.

I'm in ethics until 4pm EST, so I'll definitely take them until then, but I'll likely take them until 6pm EST.

1. I am PISSED that I can't go to Kasabian when they come to Boston. The show is on a Tuesday night at 7pm. I have Trademarks from 7:50 to 9:20.

2. The Ben Kweller tickets are $20 in advance instead of $40, and the show is on a day I can go. HOWEVER Delta Spirit is $18 and OMG DELTA SPIRIT. The complication here is that I probably can't go to both, and I love Delta Spirit more but Ben Kweller's songs I don't like are...way more listenable and...BEN KWELLER. GOD DAMN IT, NEVERMIND DELTA SPIRIT IS ON A FUCKING TUESDAY.

3. Oh, and Wild Flag will be there, but I don't know yet if I like them enough to go.

3a. All of these are at The Paradise, which is such an awesome venue.

BONUS #4. There was a really creepy woman in the laundry room who was all up in D's and my space and like...looking in our washers. So D is staying down there for the whole wash cycle. I'm supposed to be cleaning the bathroom.

So, if you're wandering in because you're like "hey, who is this person subscribing/granting me access?"...

It's [personal profile] cleo. As I said on the other journal earlier today...I'm using this as my personal journal now and I'm trying to move my reading list here.

So, no pressure to subscribe or grant access back...

I haven't been good with responding to comments lately--I'm sorry! I'll get to them, I promise.

Last night I made D a coca-cola cake for his birthday tomorrow. I'm pretty sure it didn't turn out. The oven cooks super unevenly, and if I'd let it stay in long enough for the center to be perfect, the sides and bottom would have burned. Also, it's damned hard to tell if a knife is coming out clean when there are marshmallows in the batter. I guess we'll see if he likes it tomorrow.

I...think that's the first coke I've brought home since [personal profile] twtd moved to VA The coke was definitely for the cake...I had prosecco and cranberry juice. ;)

Discussions with [personal profile] twtd have centered on such topics as the best estate planning in order to avoid one's creditors when leaving one's $0.18 to an ant and the sordid fact that Learned was Learned Hand's middle name and his mother's maiden name...which just isn't as much fun as one might be lead to believe. His eyebrows were not discussed, but they're still fun.

the longevity of the estate planning discussion was astounding and only added ot its hilarity.

I'll post about my weekend later, but this is quickly to say that Titania isn't doing well. She's alert and affectionate, but she can barely walk straight. It's heartbreaking. I can't take her to the vet until Thursday at the earliest, and I can't afford the biopsy I know they'll want to do. The biopsy is because they still don't know what's wrong.

I just...this is heartbreaking. I love that little cat, and so does Oberon. He doesn't understand what's going on with her. I don't know what to do...if there's a way to raise the money for the biopsy or something. It's just really upsetting that I can't do the one thing that would help them know how to treat her. :(

It's so ridiculous when people warn for femslash in general and especially on an all femslash com. Do you warn for het? Warning: Straight people being straight. *facepalm*
