sin city

Horoscope of Irony and/or DOOM: Ready to have 'em laughing in the aisles again and to rejuvenate your reputation as a party animal? Well, if you're not, someone else will be only too happy to do it for you -- someone who's seen you in action, entertaining the entire room with just one ridiculous facial expression. Oh, stop acting like it's an inconvenience. You know you want to come out and play.

I don't know where my horoscope gets this "party animal" thing from, but... sigh.


How fandom is like the mob: both hilarious and true.

The Littlest Drug Addict!

Two helpful communities y'all should know about: little_details and picture_request. They are NOT substitutes for your own googling and research, but they're great to have on your friends list in case you ever need anything desperately random, or if you in turn can help someone out. (It turned out that someone was looking for Hispanic nicknames the same day I was asking y'all about nicknames for Mercedes. See?) So take a look at those.


The new Star Wars poster.

Keanu Reeves as... Sinbad? Aw, hell. He's pretty and they know it. I'm totally going to end up seeing this.

Naomi Watts gets her Fay on in Kong's giant mitts.

Marie Antoinette starts filming: "Other members of the ensemble, portraying various members of the elitist court of Versailles include Rip Torn (in the role of King Louis XV), Judy Davis (as the Comtesse de Noailles), Steve Coogan (as Mercy), Asia Argento (playing the Comtesse du Barry), Marianne Faithful (Maria-Teresa), Aurore Clement (Duchesse de Chartres), Molly Shannon (Aunt Victoire) and Shirley Henderson (Aunt Sophie)." Uh, you guys...? Maybe this is a comedy.

Important question: Sister Girl's computer seems to have come down with a virus that won't let her open any of the folders on her hard drive. Naturally, this makes it difficult to debug her computer. Anyone know anything about this?

Ooo, girl. After years of restraint and politeness (ELSE YOU TASTE THE BANHAMMER!), it's all coming out on Fametracker Forums. Posters are finally bringing up the "misogyny and racism" rampant in the Celebrities section, the bizarre bannings, and... the fact that no one really reads the articles on Fametracker proper. (Hey, I like the Galaxies of Fame!) If you've been frustrated with the state of the forums for the last year, maybe more--start at the bottom and work your way back up, because the mods apparently called it quits on March 7, and it's the Wild West out there now.
