Now Friends Only



I'm going through a lifestyle change and I hate some of the things I've posted, so I'm friends-locking most of my entries here. I've also shut down my Dreamwidth journals.

Then again, I really don't seem like the type of person that would be on a wank report for...being a wanker.

I do reserve the right to delete this journal as needed to preserve whatever privacy I have.

No, I will not add new friends.

The reason why I haven't updated in so long is because I didn't feel like it.

short but cut anyway--contains brief mention of sexual assaultCollapse )

I'll be here and there on some LJ sites doing things. I'm committed to polybigbang art, so I'll do a piece or two for that. But other than that, I'll be on my Tumblr instead, staying far, far away from the lunatic fringes of fandom. And if I do start a more comprehensive blog that isn't me reblogging The Blacklist's Tumblr, I'll let you know. But I'm not starting one right now.

Cookie W. Bass: a retrospective


I've always been planning this, but since gossipgirl_anon is lost to us forever and Ed's birthday is in six days, I'm pushing out this post now and dedicating it to gossipgirl_anon as well as making this an individual "birthday present" for Ed.  I understand he will not see this.  Some of the fans that have tried to contact his people are legit crazy.  I'll be nice enough not to call them out individually. 

Also, this post is about putting the fun back in fandom and not this srs bizness #savechuckandblair/"take back the boards" mess running around that alienates those desperate for an abusive fictional couple to reunite on a television show from everyone else.  And not only fandom--we're talking casual viewers (even people hoping Chuck and Blair get together outside of fandom!), reviewers, TV writers who leak TV spoilers, bloggers and even the writers themselves.  Chuck and Blair not being together is not a fucking life-or-death situation.  Anyone participating in #savechuckandblair/"take back the boards" will be embarrassed five years after they've done this, I guarantee.     

This entry will remain public and since my journal doesn't allow anonymous comments, Chuckistan anons can stay mad.  And if they do have accounts, I'm screening non-friend comments, lol. 


And, fair warning, this entry will be image-heavy.  Then again, the only people I know that have a seriously slow internet connection are my aunt and uncle.  They have a huge Sony VISIO TV (no Blu-Ray or HDTV setup) but they still have AOL from, like, the 90s or something.  And dialup.  I am not kidding.  


this cut will work and not destroy everyone"s f-listsCollapse )
It just hit me yesterday that Britain’s latest Next Top Model winner, Mecia Simson, is a 5’8” biracial butterfly with freckles and a widow’s peak that was edited in the storyline to cry a lot.


Very much like Fo Porter, a 5’8” biracial butterfly with freckles and a widow’s peak who was edited in the storyline to cry a lot and was eliminated for being too “short.”


At 5’8”, which is taller than most women. And yet you have people in topmodel claiming Fo would actually be great in the upcoming ANTM midget short women cycle, although Fo would be too tall for said cycle.


behold, the freckles

This is proof that Tyra Banks is a hating-ass bitch.

P.S. How’s those last four ANTM winners doin’, Ty Ty?

The Ashley Brown Programme is now casting!

The actual BNTM6 casting notice is here.

Yes, there is a typo ("insde").  I just noticed it.  (smacks forehead)

Ever since Michael Jackson died, the ugliest side of American journalism has come out.  And no, I’m not talking about tales of the Elephant Man’s remains and the whereabouts of Bubbles.  I’m talking about the lack of fact checkers on these news programs.  It makes me want to scream, pun unintended. 

What drove me to write this post was the duo of Terrence and Rocsi, they who do a bang-up job of hosting the current incarnation of 106 and Park.  The two were talking to Ashanti about her memories of Michael Jackson.  Terrence, genius that he is, mentioned Michael Jackson was in the original production of The Wiz.  If Terrence would do more than admire his sorry Wikipedia page, he would know The Wiz first started life as a Broadway production starring the criminally underrated Stephanie Mills.  Michael, of course, was only in the movie version that bears no resemblance to the original Tony-winning stage version and his big song “You Can’t Win” was written specifically for the movie.

Most of the typos I’ve seen, however, are not in regards to Michael Jackson but to people talking about Michael Jackson.  On MTV News, Sway mispronounced JC Chasez’s name.  But that’s nothing compared to a CNN report calling singer Sean Kingston a rapper.  I’m not even going to delve into that one, folks, because that’s wank city. 

I’ve had my share of wank-fests with Michael Jackson fans before the advent of Encyclopaedia Dramatica, but I have to admit, as rabid as they are, they’d do a better job of covering Michael Jackson’s death than the mainstream press.
