As soon as I hit post, I am pretty much going to bed
galadriel mist
I am very tired and apparently developing arthritis in my left hand (index knuckle) (I'M ONLY 31, FOR GOD'S SAKE), which makes typing a bit uncomfortable, blah blah blah snore. HOWEVER, I will note that we are nearing the end of the current round of auctions at foresthouseeyes; here are the items ending tomorrow and Saturday. Specifically, my auctions for postcards from me (current bid: $60) and The Littlest Edward ($260) (seriously). Meanwhile, at savesnowssanity, a year of postcards/correspondence/dark portents from Galadriel ends on Sunday.

Speaking of dolls, my mother and I worked out some gift-acquiring details today. You see, both my sister and I have birthdays in mid-December, and Christmas is already srs bsns chez Jones, so things have to be coordinated. And also, my poor mother is like, "Look, I know you want this, but I have no idea where to go on the internet." So. I am simply telling you that Plans are In Place. And that I have cunning plans for making doll hair flip properly.

Meanwhile, this has been absolutely astonishing: Cook’s Source: When The Source is Plagiarized, The Source Should Feel Grateful - and Guilty.

@SmartBitches RT @Katmeyer: admiring cook's source bizmodel: purloin content; publish it w/o permission; charge author 4 editorial services.

@cleolinda: @SmartBitches 4. Send underpants gnomes to collect payments. 5. PROFIT.


Martin Sheen to Play Uncle Ben in Spider-Man; Sally Field Offered Aunt May. Which is to say, yes, we are doing that storyline all over again. Maybe Andrew Garfield can cry prettier than Tobey Maguire this time around.

(Does this mean I will actually end up doing two different versions of "Spider-Man in Fifteen Minutes"? I don't think that's ever happened before.)

Speaking of whom: Spike Jonze's New Short Film 'I'm Here' Starring Andrew Garfield and Sienna Guillory.

'Seabiscuit' Helmer Boards 'Hunger Games' Adaptation. 

Johnny Depp To Start 'Dark Shadows' In April With Tim Burton Directing.

Will We Really See 'James Bond 23' in 2012? WE BETTER, because I need Daniel Craig punching people in the head while things explode and I need it NOW.

'The Bourne Legacy' Casting Rumors Begin with James Franco. 

Speaking of whom: At '127 Hours' premiere, another call for paramedics.

Scarlett Johansson To Play A Man-Eating Alien Seductress In 'Under The Skin.'

Domestic Trailer for Peter Weir's 'The Way Back'; Domestic Trailer for Animated Oscar Contender 'The Illusionist'; The No Strings Attached Trailer with Portman and Kutcher. ...Huh.

Oscar Posters: '127 Hours,' 'The King's Speech,' 'The Illusionist,' 'Somewhere' and 'Morning Glory'; German Poster for Knightley and Worthington's 'Last Night.' 

Official Breaking Dawn Synopsis Revealed! Wait... what about this thing needs a synopsis? Are there people in the world who do not yet... know? Because, seriously, we already covered this. I have audio, even.

A Moment of Silence as The Newest Trailer for Yogi Bear Arrives.

And finally: First look at Uwe Boll's third Bloodrayne movie — featuring Nazis who want to make Hitler a vampire! Well, naturally.

Scarlett Johansson To Play A Man-Eating Alien Seductress In 'Under The Skin.'

I've seen that movie before! It's called Species, and it's not very good the first time around.



I think it's fair now to say Johnny and Tim have taken on the 'hanging out with friends should come with a pay cheque' mindset ala everyone involved with Ocean's 12 & 13. Seriously guys, there are other actors/directors.

I think it would be a lot more artistically healthy for both of them to branch out and work with other people. Hearing about them doing another movie together now just bores me.

I'm 22 and also have arthritis. Sucks to be us!

I begun at 25 but I can't say it's arthritis because NOBODY CAN TELL. It sucks to be me when it comes to weird twists in previously considered common afflictions.

I posted below and I sound barmy to myself.

Actually arthritis can be developed at any age

Maybe you can just copy paste Spiderman and change some names, its not like is not the same thing Hollywood is doing.

Vampire Hitler?! Yeah why not. At this point I'm expecting for the to turn Dracula into a vampire. FULL CIRCLE!


/continues to wait.

OMG YOUR ICON! :-O So much awesome!

For the arthritis in the hands I can strongly recc a product called Biofreeze. My physical therapist used it on my shoulder a couple of years ago and we have never gone without having it in the house since. (Check your local massage therapists, health food stores ect)

The only thing that I've used topically that works better is a prescription med.

While I don't have arthritis, I'm seconding Biofreeze. It's fantastic for all sorts of joint and muscle issues, and it's worth looking for.

"But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a perilous chain of events that pits the Cullens and their allies against the Volturi, the fear some council of vampire leaders, setting the stage for an all-out battle."

Is it really a good idea to be hyping the battle, of all things? The battle that never happens?

I don't think I'll be able to watch these two.

I'm sure the film will have a battle. I'll bet money on it. They added one to the end of New Moon didn't they? I don't know about the other two because I didn't see those, but I'll eat my non-existant hat if they don't add one to the end of BD.

What, vampire nazis now? Because zombie nazis weren't enough in the first place?

Don't forget werewolf Nazis.

Ah, December birthdays. I always hate it when people tell me they're only giving me one gift. Bitches, I want two gifts. It's not my fault Jesus and I share the same month.

My sister gets that very problem. She's usually told she'll get only one present, but then my parents cave in and she gets a second one the next week (Xmas). So the solution is to have softy parents.

And that I have cunning plans for making doll hair flip properly.


Also, seriously, if the next Bond movie doesn't happen soon I will go crazy. Daniel Craig needs to punch things, people. It will make me happy. You want to make me happy, don't you?

First, I'm sorry things have been so exhausting for you lately. And now arthritis? Really?! That's not something you needed, bleh. :\ Practically everyone I know is having a hard time right now, wtf is in the air? (My mom is currently in the other room sobbing so loudly it's freaking out my dog, if that gives a picture of my week.) There are some of your entries I haven't even had the strength to comment on lately, some of the srs bsns ones, and then I feel badly about it because I don't like seemingly giving attention to the shallow things only, when all of it is important and all of it gets read? There's just so much shit happening and I generally get too tired to even comment like a normal human being. I always feel badly when I can't say anything more to someone than "I'm sorry," but I mean it and send you lots of love and thoughts.

Second, omg birthdays and Christmas. \o/ (Doll flippy hair suggests...Alice? >:D)


At 24, I have a permanent cross stitching injury, oddly not on my sewing wrist but on the one that holds the fabric. It might be aggravated by the fact that my left-handed father taught the rest of us to use the computer and now all of us right-handed folks use the mouse with our left hands. And I cannot switch! It feels wrong in the other hand.

There is not enough OMGSTFU for this Griggs person. Plagiarism is such a...it makes me want to throw things! People think the Internet equals immunity and I bet most of them would not pull this kind of crap if they were face to face stealing. They wear the Internet like a shield and it's ridiculous.

(Does this mean I will actually end up doing two different versions of "Spider-Man in Fifteen Minutes"? I don't think that's ever happened before.)

I predict that you won't be able to resist doing it for the sheer joy of making snarky comparisons to the first one.

I have not yet seen Never Let Me Go, but I did just watch Boy A, and I can attest that Andrew Garfield does cry awful pretty.

Not enough to make me go see the movie, but I'm pleased a good actor is getting a nice paycheck. I look forward to his other, more necessary movies.

(I'm Here sounds like it features the world's first Manic Pixie Dream Robot, but that is a different issue.)
