leslie knope in love
hi folks,

i just wanted to give you a heads up that i'll be leaving lj sometime soon, probably at the end of the month. i'm currently going through and removing duplicate/inactive comms and friends from my flist, so if you see me deleting any alternate identities of yours, it's not because i like you any less; i'm just consolidating. ;)

also, i'm logicandlove on dreamwidth and would love to be friends with you over there! that'll be my new home when i'm done here.

cheers <3

leslie knope in love
so a couple of days ago i bought this userhead (to me it's lisbeth salander from the girl with the dragon tattoo [swedish] movies :D), and it was great most places but horribly unattractive as a favicon. so i posted on the support board.

full support request detailsCollapse )

somewhere between my comment and the final answer, my request was moved to the account payments category and marked as private. i vaguely suspect that had more to do with my complaint than any actual private information, considering there was none in my request. so i felt the need to post it here; now i can close it and not feel like i'm letting them get away with something. :P at least the good news is that the issue will hopefully be fixed by the end of the month.

it's a thing.

dear leslie knope aka the writers & creators of parks and recreation, since they invented her,

thank you for making the world a better place. thank you for returning to me a little of my lost faith in humanity and love for the people in it. seriously. a few years ago some stuff happened and i became a cynic, so now i basically hate almost everything and everyone. i have a lot of anger and bitterness and it doesn't take much at all to set me off. but you, leslie, and this whole show, you're brilliant and your light shines on whoever and whatever is around you, and they just soak up your awesomeness and are better because of it. you're my hero. i love you.

love,
me

i also have to thank herosquad who doesn't actually know me and won't be seeing this, but her leslie/ben mix Inconvenient Fireworks has been a huge source of happiness and otherwise positive emotions for me lately. my official leslie knope song is now She's Fantastic by sondre lerche, which i'd never heard before and repeatedly fills my heart with love and glee. so thanks, stranger. you give good tunage.

off to watch 2.12 Christmas Scandal -- the one where leslie is out of the office and the entire rest of the department can't handle her workload between them for one day because she's just that amazing -- and then bed. and hopefully sleep with minimal effort.

Sunday, 19 September 2010 @ 5:01 pm - help turn off Fox News
a grand canyon of light
to say i'm quite the movie lover is actually putting it rather lightly, and i've recently become increasingly concerned with my continued support of Fox entertainment-related companies due to their association with Fox News. i haven't yet decided how i will change my actions to reconcile them with my beliefs, but i was excited to receive an email today on that exact subject. the whole thing is quite long, so i've copied what i consider to be a good summary and put that at the beginning. the rest is after the cut, for anyone who is interested. if you wouldn't mind sending a similar email to a few people you think might feel the same, or posting something about it on a social networking site you're a part of (linking to this entry is fine!), it would mean a lot to me.

summary:
The goal of Turn Off Fox is to reduce the number of public TVs showing Fox News, while spreading the word about Fox's poison (and how it works) to those who don't know.

Signing up for the campaign is just the first step. We make it easy for you to tell us about businesses playing Fox. If you're willing to talk with them, we'll provide you with straightforward materials that explain why they shouldn't be a party to what Fox is doing. And if there are businesses you know that want to tell the world they would never play Fox, you can help them declare themselves a "Fox-free zone."

As businesses Turn off Fox and stand up as Fox Free, and as we encourage our friends and family to do the same, we'll help make clear, to people across the country, what Fox is about. And we'll reduce their ability to do harm.

Please join me in signing up for the TurnOffFox campaign.

apologies to those who are seeing this twice; i didn't realize i wanted to post here until after i had sent the email.

2 Sides of Cool: Wallpaper (Eric Frederic pt 1) from Society Theory on Vimeo.


(eric frederic is the lead singer/songwriter/guitarist/keyboardist of my favorite band in the entire world, Facing New York. Wallpaper. is his pop satire side project that is now also incredibly awesome, though it started out considerably less remarkable. the music playing in the video is Wallpaper. [in case that wasn't obvious].)

"i'm either listening to records or i'm making records." and that's why we love you.

leslie knope in love
so, uh, it appears Facing New York is back in action? seriously i'm so excited right now i'm crying a little. and i think the only reason the tears stopped building up before it became full-fledged is because my brain got all plan-y and it made the emotions slow down. wow.

the earlier show is in socal, so i think i'm gonna go to both. once i calm down a bit i'll try to put this in email form but for now: town & ariel, would you be interested in/available for a road trip? i won't clog everyone's flist with the detailsCollapse )

okay i need an fny icon again. stat. done. :D

wee! that was fun. :D

i walk like this (too strong)
this post goes out to sainfoin_fields because it was due to her entry a few months ago with the subject "i walk like this cuz i can back it up" that i first discovered the video for Beyoncé's song Ego. [note: i do not condone the kanye section, which is unfortunately at the beginning, but this is the only HD version of the video i could find (and trust me, i looked for one without him). if you like, you can do what i do and just skip to 1:28 (though there are some very sexy dance moves interspersed with the icky kanye part starting at 1:10, so if you've never seen the video i'd start there and just leave it muted til 1:28 :P).] i hadn't heard the song before and even though i didn't love it immediately, i was completely entranced by the video and promptly watched it so many times that i think the song is permanently etched into my brain. something about the shiny outfits and beyonce's awesome hair and breasts and general amazonness just spoke to me. anyway, i've finally made my months-old caps into the icons they were always meant to be. there aren't very many, but i like how they turned out, especially the one i'm using currently that reminds me of the Righteous Babe Records logo. :)

some call it arrogant; i call it confidentCollapse )

leslie knope in love
in case anyone cares and doesn't know yet, i'll put results discussion behind a cut. :)

question: does anyone know what the connection between charlize theron and precious is? i get all the other people who introduced the best picture nominees, but not that one. and it's really bugging me!

oh, and what was up with the sandra bullock / meryl streep thing? did they kiss in something (sandy said meryl was a good kisser)? obviously i realize they're not really lovers, but i was curious as to whether it had some basis in reality or if it was just coming out of nowhere.

so, thoughts on the winners. spoilers!Collapse )

this concludes my caring-too-much-about-movie[-award]s post. i hope you enjoyed and please feel free to share your thoughts as well!

man, i really need to upload some frigging icons here. pfft.

p.s. happy birthday to my mom!

p.p.s. i have a bunch of DW invite codes if anybody wants one. everyone else probably got them too, but i thought i'd offer just in case.
