When Dexter first came out, I watched a couple of episodes, got thoroughly annoyed with the constant monologuing, and went back to watching Profit on DVD. After all, naked, eyeliner-wearing Adrian Pasdar versus Micheal C Hall in chinos isn't much of a contest.

Lately I've been watching a bit more, and it's almost... not terrible. I kind of like Rita, which considering I would happily have punched Julie Benz in the face every time she popped up on Angel, says a lot. I like that one police dude who wears a hat. The children are tolerable. I sort of ship Deb/Doakes, but I've read one of the books where Doakes has a super-horrible fate, so I'm not getting attached.

Also, beautiful James Remarr is in it being beautiful and playing Dexter's dead dad. He shows up and gives Dexter sound advice, like STOP TRYING TO BE FRIENDS WITH OTHER SERIAL KILLERS. Which Dexter doesn't ever seem to listen to. Right now he's friends with... dude, I don't remember his name, but he was the president on the West Wing after Bartlett. Anyway, they're little serial killing best mates and James Remarr is all like, NO DEXTER STOP TRYING TO HAVE A SERIAL KILLER BFF and Dexter is like WHATEVER JAMES REMARR YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME and now the president dude is going crazy or something, I don't know, but I guess the moral of this story is if you are a serial killer, probably you shouldn't hang out with other serial killers because it never seems to go well.


Hmm, other things... I finally started reading Ghost Story. I was totally willing to let the whole monkey-ghost thing with the lemur(e)s slide, but what really got me was the bit about being lonely in a "Byron-esque needs-a-swimming-buddy way". Since, you know, that was Shelley and all.

Also, none of these were my fault:

Sadly, there is no option for putting a little key around your pony, or dressing him in a bartender outfit. I would totally have gone there otherwise.

Jesus fucking Christ, Facebook is officially scary. I just created an account and suddenly there's this huge list of people I went to highschool with back on the Rock That Time Forgot. I think perhaps LJ is more for me.

In other news, this is why you should not attempt to watch Carnivale and play Pokemon at the same time: Rita Sue is NSFW. Unless you happen to work in a cootch tent. Even so, she'd probably steal all your customers. )

For the record, Cynthia Ettinger is much hotter than I've drawn her here. I just suck at drawing sexy cootch-dancers in Paint.

Oh, on a related note, "I do not peddle flesh, I sell dreams!" is officially my favourite description of the fine art of pimping, ever. I wish to become a pimp simply so I have the opportunity to use it.

I am kind of ashamed of myself for doing this... but not ashamed enough to stop me from posting it! )

Okay, I couldn't find a screenshot of the actual scene where Bray asks Lex if he thinks he'd be a good father - in the show, they're sitting by the waterfront - but I know I wasn't the only one whose mind slid in that particular direction. Anyway, I think in this picture Caleb Ross has just the right amount of "disturbed face" for someone who's just discovered he's going to be a babydaddy.

Original screenshot came from Tribe-Leader, a site run by someone much more useful to fandom than me.

So I'm off work today, and I'm wandering around town checking out which stores have their Halloween goodies in yet (answer: not enough of them) and I see that Woolworths is having a sale on Power Rangers DVDs. Clearly, this is a sign from Liamneeson that I must partake of Bray-in-Spandex-related glee, and as I always obey Liamneeson in all things, I bring you:

Ghost Cupcakes )

The Game )

Ghost Zoot is in your house... )

...banging your dead girlfriend! )

Holy fucking shit, you guys, look what I found while searching for pictures of Dwayne Cameron on Google having a rich and fulfilled life in the outside world! Bray is a fucking Power Ranger! I guess now we know what the Technos were doing with all those people who kept disappearing over the last two seasons. I bet that's what happened to Chloe and Ved, too.

ETA: Hahahahhh, his Power Ranger robot thing is a fire engine. I am crying with laughter as I write this. I have to obtain this series at ANY COST! Or, you know, YouTube it.

ETA2: I am sorry, I could not resist: Bray, Power Ranger Extrordinairre )

I am an incredibly lazy person. This is not me getting down on myself, this is just me stating a fact. Personally, professionally, physically, I am lazy to the extreme. It extends to fandom, too - I spend a lot of time watching the movies or reading the books, and probably just as long viewing the various fan-creations that go along with it, but I never contribute anything myself. A lot of the time, I don't even leave comments or feedback, even if I thought it was really awesome. Adding it to my favourites is about as much effort as I care to put in.

And that's a shame, because there are people out there who really do make the effort, who go that extra mile and put the time in writing fics, drawing pictures, making stupid marcoes that put a smile on my face at the end of a long day. You make my fandoms so much more entertaining, and a lot of the time I've clicked out of your LJ without even taking the time to say thank you. I'd like to say that will change in the future, but let's face it, that's a whole lot of work that I can't be doing with, so why lie?

SO this is for you, my own personal unsung heroes of fandom. Without you, my time on the Internets would be a little less sexy, a little less funny, and a little less sick-and-wrong. You deserve my thanks, but what you're getting are Pirates In Paint. I would do more, but I want to go watch the Lost Boys again. Sorry.

Wow, I suck at updating. In my defence though, I have been extremely distracted by a combination of Roar and Stargate Atlantis - in the episode I'm watching right now, Ronan has just invented a game where the sole purpose is to give him an excuse for grabbing Johns ass. And Sheppards just like, okay, that's a totally believable game, I'll go along with it. I mean, really. When I was in college, we did this whole bit on consent obtained by deception, and there was one case about a music teacher who touched up (euphamism for something much worse I don't want to go into this early in the morning) his students under the pretence that it would improve their singing. I always used to wonder how anyone could be that naive, and now I know - they were all related to John Sheppard.

Anyway, leaving aside random military dudes who don't even know when they're being molested, Roar is so... okay, it's like what would happen if Highlander and the Tribe had a baby - it's so poor, but at the same time, it has so much leather-clad Heath, and therefore it's really hard for me to form a definate opinion. And then there are a couple of really great episodes, not to mention a few scenes where you can totally tell it's done by the same guy who did American Gothic, and therefore at least temporarily awesome. Unfortunately, Longinus and Diana, the nominal baddies, are clearly meant to be cast from the same mould as Lucas and Selina, and they completely fail to measure up. Especially Longinus, who frankly is a whingy little Roman bitch. I kind of like Diana, though, if only because she shares my hatred for dance.

On the subject of how much I hate dance, Mama Froodle came to visit again last week - it was pretty enjoyable, apart from the part where she forced me to go to the ballet. Let me just state again - I HATE DANCE. Especially ballet, which is just a bunch of underfed white boys flailing around like spastics who've gone off their medication. It was like - you know that episode of Angel where they go to Pylea, and Lorne is explaining that they have no music, but unfortunately they still have dancing, and then Numquar does the dance of joy in complete silence? It was like that, for three hours. I only survived because I started fantasizing about shooting everyone onstage in their kneecaps. Fortunately, as with all great artists, pain and suffering leads to creativity, so I give you Read more... )

In other news, seven weeks 'til Halloween, yay! ASDA have already put their decorations and things out - this year they have a really cool skeleton in a hanging cage, and when you press a button the skeleton shouts and rattles the bars and tries to escape, and an awesome jug in the shape of a skull. I also got a set of four really cute votive candle holders decorated with bats which arrived today (hence why I'm up so early). Also, fair warning to anyone attending Casa Del Froodle this year who plans on turning up in a Nurse!Joker costume - I will try to grab your ass. I promise I won't pretend it's some lame homoeroticized version of Capture The Flag, though. Seriously, Ronan. Fail.

So, Mama Froodle came to stay for the weekend, and of course I had to introduce her to the AWESOMENESS that is TDK. Afterwards we were talking about it and I mentioned that if Gotham's SWAT team had been led by Colin Farrel and Samuel L Jackson, they wouldn't need Batman, because Colin would just headbutt everyone and reduce them to swooning with his greatness. However, I sense she remained unconvinced, so I decided to prove it with SCIENCE! And Paint.

Sex, ninjas, forbidden love, Liam Neeson and the bitterness only a lifetime in customer service can produce? Tell me that wouldn't make for a great story. I'd read it.
