  1. I FOUND TWIN SNAKES. There is one used copy going for $37 at a little corner store in downtown Town. The guy who runs the place was kind enough to put it behind the counter for me. Tomorrow, I'm gonna sell back a bunch of books I have so I can afford the game. Seriously, a thing point, the game could play like crap and I wouldn't care. This is my Amulet of Yendor after my long quest.


  2. Speaking of me being a colossal fucking nerd, I just realized today while I was playing with my hair (when you've had long hair for 18 years, short hair doesn't lose it's novelty very fast) that I have the perfect hair to cosplay as certain character from MGS. Only problem is I have no con to go to if I did get an outfit together. Speaking of, I'd need...
    • Long white coat

    • Dark turtleneck (preferably green, black, or navy)

    • White pants

    • Black leather gloves

    The rest I pretty much have. Though I wear hornrims as opposed to his pretty silver wirerims, but wotev, I can fudge that. Carry a briefcase, maybe a little earpiece to talk to Snake via codec? :D :D :D Anyone wanna be my Snake?


  3. Also, I really really love this piece of fanart. Oh, Philanthropy. ILU~! ♥ Yeah, I've been throwing myself deep into the MGS fandom pool and the Snake+Otacon (exchange that "+" for a "/" if you prefer) relationship fascinates me. Even platonically, I see a lot of love between the two of them.

    Plus, seeing the nerdy guy come into his own and be a powerful asset to a team makes me happy. Otacon = player proxy? Or Otacon = Kojima's creator proxy? Eh, after I play through the series, I think I'll have a lot of thinky thoughts on Otacon, because he is somebody's fucking proxy, i just need more time and info to pin down whose. I've even dug out my old OPM copies from the bottom of the library's dustiest shelf and am reading old Kojima interviews to try to make my point better. Don't be alarmed- from what I've noticed, MGS inspires everyone to go meta.


  4. Is "whose" the possessive form, or is it "who's"?


  5. WHY IS THE FINAL EPISODE OF RED VS. BLUE: RECONSTRUCTION NOT UP YET? THIS IS MAKING ME ANGRY. YOU WON'T LIKE ME WHEN I AM ANGRY, ROOSTER TEETH PRODUCTIONS. (Sidenote: Mum is stupid. She liked Woo's version of The Incredible Hulk more than the Edward Norton version. FAIL, MUM. FAIL.)


  6. On the other hand, Yahtzee just did a review of Saints Row 2. Shame. I was hoping for a Fable 2 review because I've heard a lot about how buggy that game is and I wanna see Mr. Croshaw go off on Peter Molyneux again. :D :D :D So glad I'm not the only one who hates that pretentious twatwaffle.


  7. I told Mum that Rach got ahold of a face-to-face Obama interview and for the next half hour, all she could say was, "How the hell did she pull that off?" Because Rachel is made of magical awesome, Mum! Also, "chirpy, gay liberal"? Bitch, Imma gonna hafta ask ya to step outside. :puts up her dukes:


  8. In ficland, I am totally stagnant ATM. I think the election has fried my brain. Hell, I haven't even watched Keith in a week. Can't handle it anymore. After the Fourth, though, I think I'll finish "Love-ology"... Sorry for the horrific delay.


  9. And finally, I bought another pair of pinstriped pants. I AM A SHALLOW, PREDICTABLE PERSON. You let me loose in a clothing store and I will either open up my DS and play some Ace Attorney or I will gravitate towards the pinstripes. I am a simple creature.


  10. ETA: Hey, considering that DW spoiler: )


That's all, folks. Felt good to do one of these after so long. :D Now, if you'll excuse me, my stomach feels like it's about to re-enact that one scene from Alien. :goes to lay down:

Rachel: Thanks for your time.
Rep. Colburson (?): Thanks for having me, sir- MA'AM!
Rachel: :beams: Don't worry, happens all the time.


Can I marry her now? Please? I will even wear the stupid foofy dress.

BTW, I've not been online for the last two days due to my lappy being at the shop. I should hopefully have it back tomorrow. Just in case ya'll were missin' my shining face. I know you're not, but still. :D

HOW AWESOME WERE THE PUNDITS TONIGHT? Keith was awesome, Rachel was double-awesome, and Keith chatting and mocking McCain on Letterman was surprisingly funny. I'm not a Letterman fan. Last time I watched him? Dan'n'Keith were on. Go figure. Also: KEITH. THOSE SHOES WERE AWFUL. I AM OFFENDED BY THEIR AWFULNESS. DON'T WEAR RED-BROWN WITH A BLACK SUIT, BABY.

I'm just sayin'.

I have to share a few videos. These are absolutely fabulous. Rachel hanging out with old co-host Lizz Winstead.

From right before Super Tuesday; discussing possible VPs, how this year's elections have been unprecedented, and the Huckabee phenomenom.



Two parter from December, discussing horrible Republican dog stories, crushing on anti-nuclear proliferation folks, and The Condi Rice Story (longer version). May be best to watch these first, I guess, but wotev.





:D I loved these. Very insightful, sometimes absolutely hilarious. Very enjoyable. I think these are as close as politicos get to gossip circles.

Keith Olbermann is my favorite person in the world today.

Poor guy. You're gonna regret that pact by the time this election is over.

-Luce

ETA: Video! A must-watch!

Oh my god.


Oh my god. Did that just happen?

:cries: Keith Olbermann, I am kind of in love with you again.

BEAR CHASES, YOU GUYS. IT IS LOOKING FOR PIC-A-NICK BASKETS.

-Luce

WTF.

My "sneakers and dyke boots" icon is now a lantern.

WHAT THE EVERLOVING ZOMBIE JESUS?

ETA: WHY CAN I NOT CHANGE MY LJ PASSWORD.

I'm serious. IT WON'T LET ME.



ETA2: Bad new password: Your password must contain at least one number or symbol. I DON'T WANT A NUMBER DAMNIT.

Since Rachel's show is starting today, [livejournal.com profile] sarken and I decided we needed to celebrate the awesome. So, go, write silly little commentfics or make banners or icons, tell us about a funny segment on her radio show, or just squee about how much you adore the good doctor.

Spread the word (feel free to steal the banner to help do so) and celebrate awesome progressive talk show hosts who look great in pinstripes.

OH EM GEE

This, ladies and gents (I don't think I have any gents on my FList....), is an awesome day.

Dr. Rachel Maddow has gotten her own show.


This is the best day ever.

-Luce

ETA: Um. On a sidenote.... I'm sorry for all the Dan fans. I don't understand the Dan Love, but I respect it. I'm sorry, you guys.

I really love the NYT's piece on Rachel. Especially the title, for some reason. "Now in Living Rooms, the Host Apparent." Word, NYT. Word.

Thanks to awesome commenters, I now have Doctor Horrible music. I looooove "I Cannot Believe My Eyes", the Bad Horse songs, and, oh man, "Brand New Day". NEIL! SING MORE, BABE! You rock.

:quietly rooting for Dr. Horrible to win, man:

Also, you think I'd stop reading HuffPo comments. For people who bitch constantly about not having a decent liberal voice in the news, they don't seem happy about finally having one. What, as soon as a liberal gets on television, they become a hack? Please. :rolls eyes:

Mum: Chris Cillizza.... I like him.
Lucy: Me too. He's good.
Mum: I bet he surfs internet porn.
Lucy: I'm fairly certain most people do.
Mum: You know what? I bet he's into BDSM.
Lucy: What.
Mum: You know.... BDSM. Look at his mouth and his little smile! I bet he's a sub.

WHAT THE HELL? First Turley, now Cillizza. Is she trying to destroy all of Keith's people?! And why must she associate so many political minds with sex things?

-Luce

Mum: Can't you just see him on all fours with a ball gag-
Lucy: MUM! SHUT UP!
luciazephyr: Book of the Still, the time traveler's lifeline (Default)
:takes one look at Keith and shrieks in terror:

OH GOD, THEY'RE BACK!

-Luce

ETA: DUDE. Keith looks just like William Peterson with his glasses off. Holy crap.

ETA Strikes Back: WTF. The DailyKos guy? I mean, no offense, but those bitchez be crazy. Seriously, Keith, if it's a slow news day, cover the war. Just ask Dr. Maddow- she can tell you just how little coverage it's getting.

JOHN CUSACK ON COUNTDOWN. OMG.

HAVE I MENTIONED HOW MUCH I LOVE CUSACK?

Where is my copy of Grosse Point Blank? I need it now.

No, seriously, you know how everyone lurves Robert Downey Jr.? Well, Cusack is my RDJ.

-Luce

ETA: Why is the NYP obsessed with Keith's sex life? It's creepy.

RACHEL!

HOSTING RACE TO THE WHITE HOUSE!

:checks to see if she beat [livejournal.com profile] scrunchy this time:

-Luce
luciazephyr: Book of the Still, the time traveler's lifeline (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] flakygoddess: and I was thinking, "you know what our fic needs? MORE RACHEL."
Lucy: She's like cowbell, in a way.
[livejournal.com profile] flakygoddess: Ahaha! She totally is
Lucy: I'M GONNA MAKE AN ICON OF THAT
[livejournal.com profile] flakygoddess: YOU SHOULD
Lucy: "like cowbell, in a way"
[livejournal.com profile] flakygoddess: "Needs more Maddow."



Comment, credit, love.

OMG

RACHEL IS HOSTING THE PANEL?

IS THIS SIGNIFICANT? I THINK IT IS.

Because after November, the "Race to the White House" show will be kind of irrelevant, yes? So they'll need something to replaaaaace it. :D :D :D

\o/

Mum keeps whining about how Tweety is doing all the talking and Keith is doing nothing.

D: Come on, Keithie, don't get all quiet on us. Tonight is too good to be so sorely lacking in Keith and Rachel.

-Luce

Rachel, in the third hour of her show, went on about Keith for five minutes. NewsCorp posted his address in the NYP and Rachel is livid.

:D Smackdown.

Also, it's really worth listening to hours 2 and 3. Rachel makes a fascinating case on why Hillary won't be dropping out. Oh, and a list of things McCain claims to support and then didn't vote for. Even a few bills he cosponsored. And Pastor Hagee says the Antichrist is gonna be a gay Jew. Awesome. :rolls eyes:

Grab the show here. I can't figure out AAR's new site.

-Luce

ETA:
[After Hagee story.]
David Bender: Rachel, I have a real problem now...
Rachel Maddow: What is it?
DB: Well, I was listening just a few minutes ago and it turns out... I'm the Antichrist.
RM: :loses it:
DB: I didn't know until a few minutes ago, but I'm the gay Jew Hagee is talking about. Someone should have told me!
RM: It hurts to find out this way, huh?
DB: On the radio! I should have got a memo!

:D :D :D

You know.... it's kind of vaguely amusing to remember that, before this election season, Keith was kind of buddies with the Clintons- always very gracious to them and defending them from the right wing spin machines.

Also, thank you, Keith, for concisely summing up why I don't like Clinton.

-Luce
luciazephyr: Book of the Still, the time traveler's lifeline (Default)
Wow. Keithie-boy is pissed. The Hillary story dropped earlier today, only a few hours ago, and he's already got an SC.

Whoo boy. :puts on a hardhat:

-Luce

ETA: Jesus fucking Christ. "Pissed" didn't even begin to cover it.
