twilight lolcat
So, a few things--mostly Twilight-related, now that I think about it. Sorry in advance for that.

I'm still working on the Eclipse thing (eh, we can speak of it. We've all known for months, if not since November 2008, that I would be doing it). For some reason, I pretty much had a mild nervous breakdown trying to do the New Moon one, and for some reason... I really don't give a shit this time around, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. Maybe because I feel like New Moon turned out really well and I'm just not even bothering to worry that I could top that; maybe because it's summer and it's hot and life is too short. I "wrote" a few scenes in my head--I do that--but didn't even type anything out until I saw the movie a second time. And today I was just sitting there, trying to figure out what to do--I get to this point where it's like, I can do parody dialogue, but when you get to the text descriptions you need to move from point A to point B, that's when I start rocking in the corner. Those are the bits that take me the longest to make work. So, you know what, I thought? Fuck it. I'ma write in more Viking saga any time I get stuck. I'm going to have people walking in off the street, as it were--people who only hear about the Fifteen Minutes stuff and don't read my regular journal--who are probably going to be confused or dismissive, but there you are. At least it's something new to play with. So what I'm telling you here is that Not Giving a Shit is turning out to be a very positive experience, and I'm back to having fun with it.

Anyway. There's a great thread on the Edward Cat entry where people are sharing pictures of their own cats (and a few dogs). Also, speaking of Edward Cat: it has been pointed out to me that if snowcoma woke up to find him in her lap, that means... he was watching her sleep. Just like an Edward should. Bless.

(Do y'all have a rocking chair? He might like one.)

I still keep going back to that entry of snowcoma's, by the way. I am a ridiculous softie for pets anyway, but it just makes me feel extra fuzzy to see Edward Cat and his giant bear paws so happy.

You guys. Seriously.

(I also noticed that there's a bell on his collar, so he gets to have his very own chime accompaniment, as a catpire should.)

Speaking of cats! Eclipse with lolcats is up! (The Twilight one is where my icon comes from.) I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS.

Also, someone sent me a comic about Twilight a long while back, and I didn't bookmark it and can't find it now. I hate to give away the punchline, but I'll have to, in order for anyone to know what I'm talking about. It was: "I thought she meant anal." So... yeah. ETA: Ah! Here we are.

Also-also: This trailer chagrins me. But then, I want the Epic Movie people shot into the sun anyway, so.

I know there must be some people, somewhere, that enjoy these movies. BUT WHO ARE THEY? Seriously, I do wonder how on earth there is the money to keep making these movies, and what on earth makes studio execs think it's a good idea to make them?

They actually make something like $80 million each worldwide, was the number I saw today. And they cost maybe $20 million to make. And this one, people who hate Twilight'll go see it, and people who love it'll probably see it too. It's not a bad move at all financially. I just deeply resent that I'll have to see commercials for this when, as a friend pointed out, there are a hundred better parodies on YouTube.

YAY for happy Edward!

I'm going to cry now, brb.

I don't know how much nerd!fail you're interested in following, but ontd_political and wow_ladies, along with, oh, the WSJ and MSNBC are following an implosion of common sense in the online gaming world.

I mean, even fandom_wank is against this. Fandom_wank!

Even if someone's not a gamer, it's interesting to follow this as it evolves, as it may be a part of the fall of anonymity on the internet in general.

Oh! Is this the Blizzard thing?

Why does the world need another lame spoof movie? I don't EVEN get it.

That's the one! I could have sworn I saw it somewhere else, though.

Not Giving A Shit is the summary of the life lesson I've learned from menopause. IT'S LIBERATING.

(Deleted comment)
When I get super-stressed, mostly over college and loans and crap, I switch into Not Giving a Shit mode. "Nope! I don't see you, problems! When I have my nose in a non-school-related book, I can't see you and you can't see me!"

It really is often the best option. There's no point in freaking out and going in circles over something.

Heeee, the pictures of Edward-cat with his belly up, all "Moar pettings nao" still make me grin.

Heh. He's a lot more forward than Actual Edward Cullen, that's for sure. But you can tell he must feel totally at home already, which makes me happy.

Okay normally I hate spoof movies. I mean the first two Scary Movies were alright and then it was all beaten to death but...but I was actually amused watching that trailer. I feel so dirty now.

Ditto! It gave me brief chuckles and then a solid shameover.

So what I'm telling you here is that Not Giving a Shit is turning out to be a very positive experience, and I'm back to having fun with it.

As long as you're having fun with it, that is, seriously, the most important part.

Happy Edward Cat makes me happy.

I'm mainly a dog person, but it makes me all warm and fuzzy to see a happy ending for such an awfully-named cat.


Ahhh, Not Giving a Shit sums up all my essays and projects during high school. I'd start off great; but an hour or two in I would end up sayin' "Eh, f*ck it. I'm already getting an A in the class." Not Giving a Shit never hurt my GPA though. *shrugs*

It makes me happy that Edward Cullen Cat is craving the attention--and getting lots of it too.

But rocking chairs are the natural enemies of the housecat!

Only if the housecat is beneath the rocking chair. My cat loves sitting in it.

OMG. The Jacob-Wolf leaning on the doghouse is amazing. I laughed so hard a dropped my laptop. I look forward to the LOLcat Twilight parodies almost as much as I do the M15M.

Yesss he is by far my favorite. I want to go adopt that dog but I have no doubt that he's in a loving, awesomeness-appreciating home.

Not Giving a Shit is what made it possible for me to introduce the character of Dr. Raul Duke, Gonzo Pet Psychiatrist to my possibly-insane work in progress.

That, and the fucking rum. So at least now you know where it's gone. It's gone to steampunk 1919.


That's all. :)
