HEY FOLKS, THE LJ FAIL JUST GOT WORSE.

PEOPLE ARE FINDING OUT THAT AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS ARE BEING ENABLED WHEN THEY PREVIOUSLY DISABLED THEM. http://news.livejournal.com/140511.html?thread=98346463#t98346463

IF YOU HAVE PAID ACCOUNTS, CHECK THEM.

CAPSLOCKING FOR JUSTICE (OR LAZINESS, RATHER)!

Hmmm....

Debating on whether or not to make this my main journal or to make it my fanjournal. I think I might use this one for basic commentary, I don't know.

THIS NEW LAYOUT IS UG TO THE LY. IT'S SO UGLY, IT SCARED AWAY MY LOWERCASE LETTERS. IT'S SO UGLY, YOU HAVE TO TIE A PORK CHOP AROUND ITS NECK TO GET THE DOG TO PLAY WITH IT. IT'S SO UGLY, IT SMILED AT A MIRROR AND THAT SHIT SHATTERED. IT'S SO UGLY, FLAVOR FLAV WON A BEAUTY CONTEST OVER IT.

LJ has finally bumped it's mahfuggin' head all the way with this ugly new format and removing the goddamn subject lines and ability to preview. I'm going to start the complete move over to Dreamwidth soon. http://shazafram.dreamwidth.org

Gum popping. I hate it with a passion. It's obnoxious, especially when you're standing in line somewhere like in a store and someone behind you or even the cashier is doing it. STOP.

I'll be migrating things over to this account soon. I keep forgetting I have a DW journal, but I guess I'll use it more. Maybe. Been feeling disconnected for quite some time.

Thanks for your kind words in regards to the loss of my mother. I'm dealing with it better, bit by bit, and I know that I'll be alright.

Alright, sad stuff aside, I realize I hadn't posted in quite a while before my last post. Several fandom things happened in that time. Do y'all want the good news, the bad news, or the worst news first? Sadly, I think they might vary amongst you all.

The Good News: I feel inspired to write.

The Bad News: I'm not inspired to finish up anything I started writing or anything KKM related (*sigh*). Everything has been original, or fic snippets that will never see the light of the Internet.

The Worst News: Somehow, I became a fan of the show Supernatural (I know, I know.

News Better than that previous bit: But not enough to write for it or ship anything or do anything other than laugh at other fans.

The Interesting news: My daughter is now a KKM fan. Her favorite character is Günter, lol, and she calls it "The Yuuri Show" instead of by its name. She also wants to be Günter for Halloween, extra lol. I guess I'll have to ask on the comm where I can find a costume or something.

The Obvious news: I've discovered that I don't like it very much when characters I love die permanently, not even for ~storyline purposes~. A good story is a good story, I used to think - but I'm to a point where I just can't stand it anymore. The City Hunter Kdrama really screwed me up, because two of my favorites died in that. I'm still not over that last HP book, so much so that I refuse to even bother with those last movies or that last book (or really the last two books - in my mind Snape and Dumbledore are not dead LA LA LA LA LA). I can't even bear re-watching Rose of Versailles anymore, it's so tiring and depressing. Maybe I'll get over this hangup, I guess I'm tired of dealing with death and dying even of fictional characters (yeah, and becoming a Supernatural fan was such a good idea, self?).

Oh yeah, I wanted to tell y'all some fandom silliness. Can I just say that one of the best fandom meltdowns I have EVER seen has been happening in the One Life To Live fandom? For those of you who don't know the canon and don't care, all I have to say is imagine a fan favorite character's actor left the show and was killed off on the show, and then was replaced by someone new playing the same character with the excuse of having had plastic surgery to explain why he looks different. That new person stayed in the role for 8 years, played the role differently and got his own set of fans (while fans of the old actor mostly did not like the way he took the character), until the old actor came back and it was revealed that the new version was a fake all along brainwashed into believing he was the original character but is actually a twin of his. Then the fake gets killed off two weeks later. Throw in fans shipping the character with two different women, and KABOOM. It's beautiful, people. Beautiful.

True Lies 2, where we find his character has illegitimate triplets with his wife's hairdresser.

Finally got around to watching this movie. I forgot how long it was, but daaaaaaaaaaamn it seemed like it took forever to watch that.

However, I won't lie: I enjoyed it. Not because it was the best movie in the history of forever, but because it was the first time in a long time a movie has had me completely entranced, waiting to find out what was going to happen next.

The funny thing about it is the only reason I decided to watch it is because people keep referencing it, and I wanted to be "in" on the joke, lol. It was worth it, however.

Pros: Visually beautiful, interesting plot, excellent score.

Cons: Could have developed the characters a bit more/given them more backstory, reasons for doing/being what they do/how they came to be able to do it - but this isn't so distracting, though.

I didn't walk away from it shipping anything, but I am glad it didn't get bogged down with some shitty romance between main male/female character like I suspected it would from early on.

When I was a teen, I had a dog that I *thought* had got loose and run away, never to be found. Years later, a relative confessed that they were high and thought the apocalypse was coming, so they let her go.

Pomegranate 7up is on sale again for the holidays here! I love this stuff! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I am going to stock up this time, because it is so awesome. I bought three of them last night, I am totally going to buy about 20 of those damn things. I let one of them get ice cold in the freezer, I swear I am going to break out the wine glasses for this. LOL drinking 7up from a wine glass.

1) I finally got to watch Toy Story 3 yesterday. Not gonna lie, I cried at the end. I mean, I was straight up boo-hooing. It was an excellent movie, by far my favorite out of the three.

2) Out of boredom, I watched Tyler Perry's "Daddy's Little Girls" Saturday night. I have to say, it was much better than I thought it would be, though some of Tyler's "issues" with black women (particularly those who are educated) were still present. Still, not nearly as much misogyny as "Why Did I Get Married?" (I didn't bother watching the sequel, ugh), and the plot, though a bit weak and cliche in parts, was far more decent than some of the things he's come out with.

Speaking of Tyler Perry and black women, I still haven't decided whether or not to see "For Colored Girls". I mean, the cast is excellent (and it's sad that Tyler Perry is one of the ONLY people giving black actors/actresses of this caliber work), and I know he is only adapting the work from someone else, but I don't know. I have a habit of walking away from his movies pissed off.

3) My NaNo fic is stalled. I decided to start late, and did not have time to plan it out accordingly. I still have time to at least get it up to 50k (it stands at 22k right now), but if I don't like where it is heading, what's the point?
shazafram: (Default)
I've finally buckled down and decided to get a beta because my current ongoing fic is sprawling and I need direction. Why is it so hard to find a beta reader? I've looked at the beta profiles on ff.net and lol forever. Someone needs to beta some of those profiles...

Anyone have suggestions where I can look? Should I ask on one of the main KKM comms? Or is that just asking for trouble, lol?

Also, who's doing NaNoWriMo this year? I thought about it, but I've been feeling so sick I don't think I can commit to it this year. If I do, either I'll finish the book from last year (Urban Paranormal Lit, fuck yeah!), write a prequel to it (because I think it would come off better if I wrote out some events that happened prior to this book re: the protagonist's father), or write some long dramatic-ass swan song fanfic for Kyou Kara Maou.
