Meanwhile... what the shit is up with CSI:NY and women? I linked to an article before about a trend in crime dramas of whomping the female stars, apparently (theoretically) to prevent them being too strong, to add interest by portraying their feminine emotional frailty in the face of trauma. CSI:NY started down this road last year when Stella had a stalker/domestic abuse problem. But they've gone way past that now, with a new plotline for Stella and a totally separate one for Lindsay as well.

Cut for vague/general season 2 & 3 spoilers, and also angry feminism. )

Miss Manners weighs in on fingernail-grooming in public: Now that you and your colleague are on the same stick of lip balm, Miss Manners has a hard time saying that you are not on sufficiently intimate terms to attempt reforming her. ♥

Still no gmail. :/

I'm trying out a brief +/- episode reaction thingy. It was kind of fun with last week's Grey's Anatomy, so we'll try to translate it to CSI:NY. I wonder if I should add a third category of LOL, though... last week's csi:ny in brief )

you know, that one line about nelly furtado['s character] in week before last's csi ny ) really deserves to be an icon.


and in extremely different news, britney spears shaved her head and the people from the salon are apparently selling it, along with her half-drunk can of redbull. according to the insta-tabloid info being posted at [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt, she may or may not be (a) suffering from amphetamine psychosis, (b) converting to scientology, (c) losing her hair anyway due to crappy bleach jobs, (d) checking into rehab, (e) all of the above.

on the new harry potter book, [livejournal.com profile] bibliotech's comments.

on the last episode of csi:ny, an article linked to by [livejournal.com profile] miriam_heddy in a different context: shows turn female crime fighters into victims. that's not really a spoiler since it's a comment on the plot arc they've been developing for lindsay all season.

and this isn't a comment, but dude: shrooms relieve severe ocd symptoms (link from [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda).

i feel acutely my lack of fandom (read: arashi) participation over the last couple of weeks. ohmiya daily has been on hiatus because i ran out of capped ohmiya episodes and time for watching japanese reality tv on my own. i still love arashi! and you guys! and after my exam on monday i'm sure i will have some fandom time again.

in the meanwhile for stress relief i've been surfing delicious1 and reading stargate atlantis again. [livejournal.com profile] isilya and [livejournal.com profile] wax_jism have heard a bit of half-formed meta stewing in my brain about the phenomenal popularity of sheppard/mckay, which i think can be compared to no other fandom/OTP explosion in the past decade so germanely as to the qui-gon/obi-wan one after TPM (which was similarly popular and also based on a similarly slim foundation of canon).

1. del.icio.us-surfing procedure: click on a "also saved by n other people" link from your own page of bookmarks, preferably from a story you like a lot; the trick is not to pick a story that's been saved by too many other people. the best is one you like which isn't very popular and isn't by one of the authors whom everyone bookmarks; the incidence of their stuff is going to be high in any list of bookmarks, and it's not much use to you obviously, unless you've just discovered fandom this very instant. browse the comments/tags used by the other people who bookmarked it. click on the fandom/pairing tag of one of these users and skim their bookmarks for new reading material.


csi ny ) veronica mars ) and house was just as brilliant as everyone else is saying. i was somewhat disturbed by the fact, though, that the elder of the two guest stars bore a strong resemblance to my crazy conspiracy-theorist homophobic racist maternal grandfather. much more cultured accent though.

ooh, the new itunes has a slightly updated interface. i like it.

also, a couple of days ago i pouted until wax agreed to watch a bit of sherlock holmes with me. did you know that "the second stain" is "den andra fläcken" in swedish? it's great that their word for "stain" is the same as their word for "speck". it's one of my favourite film episodes because of the scene involving the titular stain when holmes and watson get my little rat boyfriend lestrade out of the room for about two minutes and holmes frantically examines every inch of the floor in his absence. also, holmes absent-mindedly sets the newspaper on fire at breakfast.

this was an excellent week in tv, going in order of awesomeness: csi )

almost as fun was csi ny )

veronica mars has me tickled with its new recurring secondary characters and its clever season 3 replacement for wallace and his keys to the principal's office. it's hard to know if creepy or hot is cooler in a recurring character, but luckily they've got both bases covered )

studio 60 was kind of on notice from my good graces because of being occasionally tiresome and generally less funny than it should be, so when i heard it had been renewed my reaction was less "yay" and more "oh dear, now i have to keep watching". but this time i was entertained from beginning to end, so i take that back. oddly enough, though, )

although i enjoyed it very much i have less to say about criminal minds )

torchwood made me roll my eyes a lot in between the cute bits; it was agreed, generally, that it's about time for house to have a nemesis and that we heartily approve of their choice of nemeses; and i still think stand off has "cancel me" written all over it.

veronica mars )

alan tudyk was on csi! ♥♥♥ csi )

kirsten vangsness is a regular on criminal minds as of season 2, so can she please have some more screentime? i'm just saying, it would make me so happy. criminal minds )

torchwood )

csi new york was eh. also, i'm seriously disappointed to learn that mac consumes vending machine cupcakes, because ew.

it snowed practically all day and all night. i want to take pictures, but i'm too lazy to go back outside by myself, and wax is very very busy knitting me a sweater vest. so perhaps we'll watch something instead.

i'm hungry, anxious and highly restless. what i should do is make some dinner and soothing tea and settle down to watch an episode of something, and then try to study for the theory of knowledge exam on wednesday. but i think first i will talk about the last two weeks of csi ), and also csi:ny, because [livejournal.com profile] thegoldsky's ex was a suicide girl. it's a seriously odd feeling to be like "oh! hey, i know them, because a girl on my friendslist used to date one!" on a slightly more spoilery note about csi:ny... . ) also, we watched torchwood, but i'm not going to talk about it just yet.

it's really rare that i care about an obvious canonical het ship, but you know? morgan/garcia in criminal minds really, really does it for me. ♥ i might love criminal minds more than csi & csi ny, actually - it's hard to say.

criminal minds 201 )

csi ny 301: people with money )

actually, at this point, i'm more excited for csi tomorrow than i was for either of these, for reasons related to last season's finale-bomb. also! i am happy to report that the new couch is really delightful to sit on. but we could really use a coffee table, if we're going to be sitting on it much. (we tried to get one, but ikea doesn't deliver the one we wanted, for some reason.)

last night we made [livejournal.com profile] anglepoiselamp and [livejournal.com profile] shiroi_chi watch the last two eps of csi:ny and the csi finale with us (as well as some doctor who and possibly something else that i've already forgotten).

the new doctor who )

the last two weeks of csi:ny )

csi finale + mention of more long-term spoilers from producer interviews a year ago )

in conclusion, [livejournal.com profile] anglepoiselamp brought a bottle of triple sec and i was able to determine that the best way to watch ancient doctor who (4th and 5th doctors in this case) is after two margaritas. i didn't really grasp even the parts of the 5-doctors film that i did watch (as opposed to walking the dog and preparing eggs-in-a-basket and apricot tea for everybody), but it sure was mildly entertaining! also, i think i had some vague tezuryo bunnies, but fortunately they are not gnawing my arms off like the more robust "dreaming on the radio" and "since last goodbye" bunnies - since they are going to have to wait till after my next two writing projects. hey, [livejournal.com profile] shiroi_chi: don't forget i want a picture of your tezuka lookalike!

okay, well, considering the business of the past week, and staying up to 3 or 4 am like five out of the past seven days... we haven't been keeping up with our tv and just now watched the csi new york from two weeks ago. (although i did find time for four episodes of prince of tennis, but they only add up to about 88 minutes all together.)

love=rekindled. )

danny's so endearingly thick, and i love to mock him.  [livejournal.com profile] perhael has been writing a masturbation fic, the beginning of which you can find here, and this crack!snippet takes up where it leaves off.

my thinking was that i really, really just want someone to kick mac's and danny's heads until some sense gets stuck in them, and that stella makes a good authorial stand-in for that. )

ooohkay.  the frivolous little fic that was supposed to just be porn and got away from me!  finally finished.

many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kyuuketsukirui for two betas, both remarkably quick.  also to [livejournal.com profile] perhael for cheerleading, [livejournal.com profile] wax_jism for a once-over, and [livejournal.com profile] stellaluna_ for certain character discussions.
"What happened?"

Danny just looks at her. "He tied my tie, Aiden."

She lifts her hands apologetically, "Hey, I'm not asking for a re-enactment."

I am, Danny thinks before he can stop himself. He takes a drink instead of massaging his forehead.

while getting dressed i was looking at the little sleeve that came from the box set of star trek season three and wanting to watch some (any season). specifically, i'd love to see "devil in the dark", the rather slashy episode which the quote in my icon comes from. but there's not time left before i have to go.

i haven't looked at my e-mail in, um, a long time. lalala.

we watched the first... five? episodes of csi season four last night. ahhhhhh. and also veronica mars ) and csi ny. )
cimorene: A black-and-white vintage photograph of 1920s singer Helen Kane in profile, with a dubious, side-eye expression (Default)
no more anythings are going to be watched, unless it becomes necessary for the continued harmony of my relationship with my better half, UNTIL DANNY AND MAC HAVE HAD SOME GODDAMNED PORN.* i didn't use to need my hand held to write stuff. grrrr. missi?

speaking of writing stuff, i don't think wax mentioned that some guy was inspired by void (which she hasn't even finished) to write a thingy of his own, which he's had published, and it's now at amazon.com, complete with a character based on elijah wood. HAHAHAHAHHAAH. much as i wish she would finish void that dark harbor fic anything, nobody deserves that, man, nobody. and yet... it's so blackly hilarious.

eta: speaking of csi:ny, [livejournal.com profile] stellaluna_, i've had it in my head since you revealed Stella's Rule of Dating #2. i mean, that had to be an icon. )

+ this icon is banned from the internet.


+ i really wanted to draw a pig as a personality test, but the interface is down and it keeps eating my pigs.


+ gah, it's really awful having to do useful work when your brain is full of dishevelled gary sinise and all you want to do is lie back and think "mmh mac and danny having angry sex".


+ some guy in canada wants to make the law so parents can't legally deny grandparents the right to see their grandchildren. uh. o.0


+ my parents e-mailed me that they can't afford to fly me home this summer for a visit, at least, "not without taking out a loan". the scary thing is that i couldn't tell if that last was serious or an inept attempt at a guilt trip. okay, actually, it would have been ept, but i don't think it was meant as one. but i have little patience with my own guilt-angst. if i'm not going to actually stop taking their money, wallowing in guilt is just a rather despicable sop to my conscience. so i need to suck it up, and when i can't take the guilt, stop taking the money. yeah, well. some day.


+ i've decided to listen to nothing but swedish music until i start speaking swedish more naturally in everyday situations. we'll see how long that lasts. och jag vet att ni bryr er inte om att jag säger lite på svenska.


+ veronica mars and csi: ny were both incredibly good today. my tremendous guh over the latter has somewhat eclipsed the former, but really, they were both The Sex. i briefly wanted an icon of logan. but, man. csi: ny is getting better, i think. some really powerful scenes this time, like stella's telling off the criminal in the end. mac usually comes off unfavourably when he does this: moralising and self-righteous. but stella, her composure and succinct eloquence and palpable contempt. i'm in love with stella.

the bar the characters go to in csi:ny is called "sullivan's."  what kind of music is it going to play?  is it really an irish bar, or is the name more likely the only irish thing about it?  i've never been to any remotely irish bars.

i just wanted to refresh my memory of tanglewood, even though i've already capped it, before i watched the next one.  but i got carried away.

holsters bother me. )

i've capped 110 before--not skipping it.  the gallery of 111 contains 69 caps.

10 samples )

MAC: but why would a kid cross the tracks?
STELLA: to get to the other side?
MAC: one way or another.
AHAHAH. he totally asked so she would say that so that he could--aösldkjfasödlf! on this show, you don't have to have a sense of humour to make bad puns!

AIDEN: i've got words here longer than dimaggio's hit streak.
