My eldest nephew introduced me to these and they're awesome. It's about every major piece of literature broken down into an easy to digest form and very entertaining but not lacking in the literary analysis either.

So I might be contemplating a Kraglin AU where I'd use Kirk Gleason lines and situations from the Gilmore Girls episodes but with Kraglin in the GOTG universe.

ericadawn16: (Weird)

Sorry, it won't let me embed but it's the Honest Trailer for Fate of The Furious...which I still haven't seen, lol.

Anyway, right when they show Djimon Hounsou, I'm thinking...wait, Djimon Hounsou was in these films, too?

And then the Honest Trailer guy says the same thing and it was awesome.

But then, I'm also thinking these films have Vin Diesel, Kurt Russell and Djimon Hounsou...

It's like Groot works for Ego while Korvath is a drug warlord and Wonder Woman gets to be halfway cool for two films before getting killed off...

So messed up...

"I thought Yondu was your father."

"What? What made you think Yondu was my father?"

"You look exactly alike."

"One's blue!"
ericadawn16: (Surprise)
Aren't they cute?

Hmm, $24.99 isn't too bad...I wonder if Target could be less...
ericadawn16: (GrrArghh)

My VCR died but I don't want to just throw my tapes out. I'd rather they got to good homes.

Any ideas?
ericadawn16: (Curious)
Everyone kept talking about Wonder Woman in this revolutionary way, how it made them cry.

I felt left out a little.

It was cool to see her kick ass but it also felt...normal, how things should be.

I thought maybe it was how my generation was raised. We had Ripley, She-Ra, Dana Scully, Buffy, Kim Possible, Mulan and countless others showing us how strong women were normal...

But some of those crying women WERE my age so...

It was something else and then, I realized I already had my "Wonder Woman Moment". It was when, for the first time in my life, I saw a woman in a live action Star Wars film take up a lightsaber and defeat the male patriarchy with it.

It was pretty freaking sweet.

It turns out that James Gunn did a Q & A on Facebook over a month ago and I didn't find out until a couple of days ago.

It's really awesome. He discusses almost everything...really, no one asked him whether the Zune will mean more up to date tunes next time? 80s?

There are also multiple appearances by his cats and we almost had a cameo by Michael Rooker. Gunn explains what happens between the spacesuit scene and the funeral, Jossing a LOT of fanfic out there right now. It's also WAY more angsty than any of those stories have come up with.

I didn't watch Gilmore Girls consistently when it was new because half the run happened when I was at college although I always tried to catch up during the summer. I remember at one point, it must have been my first year away, that my mom was actually watching every week and she's not a big fictional television person.

Still, I'm pretty sure I've seen every episode at least once but when people described the Netflix season as "meh", I thought they must be right since it's pretty hard to recapture magic like that and the last season on regular tv...yeah, that was hard to watch.

But then, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 happened and I've been watching Gilmore Girls a LOT. It's on Up!, not just Netflix doesn't have the Netflix season...

Which I thought was okay until I was watching Luke and Lorelai break up for the hundredth time and I...wanted that payoff, dammit!

The wedding is on Youtube, yay! But now I know there's an adorable pig and of course, that pig's owner and I WANT THAT SEASON!!!

*fingers crossed it comes out on dvd like the Arrested Development Netflix season*

ericadawn16: (Jubilant)
Obviously, Wednesday's storms were bad. I just didn't think they were that bad. There was definitely a close lightning strike but it wasn't like the time that tree beside my bedroom was struck and broke in half.

Still, there was a POP and everything went off and on like a surge. I assumed the power was out but the backups weren't beeping and the kitchen light was working. Still, the tv wouldn't turn back on. It was dead. Now I think of it as almost like a heart attack because in about 20 years, it's the only time I've had a failure with a surge protector. The tv was 8 years old which is a decent age nowadays...even though the 22 year old Philips and 14 year old Sanyo still work fine.

Did you know they don't even make Philips tvs any more?

Also, Best Buy now charges 25 dollars to recycle flat screens.

I ended up with a Samsung LED. It wasn't until I was adjusting the color on Star Wars that I realized my previous tv was definitely NOT an LED. BB-8 was so beautiful like I could touch him! I could make out individual leaves on Luke's island. Everything was so pretty. I had considered going up to 1020 p but it was a hundred dollars more so I stuck with 720 and now it's like...1020 must be crazy and I can't imagine those new 4K tvs.

I'm also really happy about the Closed Captioning. The last time I tried Directv captions, they sucked so I went back to the television ones. This time, I tried Directv again and now the Captions are a LOT better. I can easily read them and they move around so they aren't blocking crucial information.

My mom's a little jealous about my remote. When you press a button, all the buttons light up.

Oh, and I'm talking about a 24 inch because I've never had bigger than that.

My mom's Directv receiver also died so today, awesome technician Eavan ended up replacing...almost everything. Apparently, when you trouble-shoot and fix everything yourself for 8 years, the equipment can really change and become obsolete. If it wouldn't have taken so long, he wanted to replace the satellite dish, too. Also, it turns out that the DVR technician fucked stuff up when he installed it and that had to be fixed today, too. I was a little pleased about that because that technician was rude to me. Yeah, it's 8 years later and I still remember, I'm a grudgey person that way.

It is a little annoying that my remote is messing with her set.

We bought two new battery backups but since the other two are still decent, we put those two on her television setup and the refrigerator so everything except the washer/dryer is set.

One of the big selling points of the Guardian of the Galaxy films is the music. There was a lot of discussion about which soundtrack was better. I had a hard time deciding which soundtrack I liked better so I resorted to math, lol. I gave each song a 1-10 number, added them up and divided it by how many singles were on that soundtrack.

Awesome Mix Vol. 1 6.75
Awesome Mix Vol. 2 7.71

No wonder how I couldn't decide which one I liked better! However, Awesome Mix Vol. 2 did suffer from "Brandy" which I gave a 0. I disliked the song before the film and now, it makes me cringe just listening to it. I also had another sad realization. I kind of noticed that nothing seemed to be after Meredith met Ego and James Gunn confirmed that there are no songs after 1979. Here's a woman described as "knowing the lyrics to every single song that came on the radio" and once she meets Ego and has Peter, that just...goes away? Now, I know my mom refers to the period of time when she had several small children at the same time as a lost time when she wasn't paying so much attention to pop culture (that would have been 1973-1977 so I don't think she missed much) but once the children get older, she gets back into things helped by Philip Glass, Wings, Genesis and more. I refuse to believe that Meredith Quill finds nothing between 1980 and 1988 in music worthy. Of course, it could also be taken as she only wanted the Awesome Mixes to be music that she had previously shared with his father because he never got to meet him...but Ego's a dick so I hate that interpretation, too, so sad all around.

Ooh, but I have a thought regarding the soundtrack...


Sing it with me now, Zardu Hasselfrau! Zardu Hasselfrau!

This animated film is 12 minutes long and deep but I totally recommend it. My oldest nephew found it.

ericadawn16: (Surprise)
I know the timing sucks but I've been waiting for months to make this post.

I love that film so much. I know the book was better and the film deviated so much from it but...ugh, that CAST!

Jeff Goldblum, Pete Postlethwaite, Julianne Moore, Vince Vaughn, Richard Schiff!!!

I still want to know what happened to Kelly Malcolm and his other children. What happened to Sarah Harding? What about Nick van Owen?

It sucks. My DVR will be unhappy or I'll just quit stuff, not sure. Wow, I haven't recorded new Will & Grace in about 15 years.

Oldest Nephew: That looks good!

Me: It'll probably be canceled.

Oldest Nephew: Why?

Me: Because it "looks good" and it's Fox.

Oldest Nephew: Good point.

Also, speaking of television, I found out about Manchester from an email sent out from 93.3 WFLZ even though I was watching network shows and assumed they would mention that somewhere. My mom knew nothing until I told her even though I would think it would affect sports also.
