allchildren: emily and naomi (⎚ through the eyes of a girl)
HI.

So 2014 is almost over I'm beginning to suspect. I watched some TV during this time. I also worked a lot, broke my thumb, got arthritis, went to physical therapy, went to emotional therapy, had surgery, applied and was accepted to university, traveled to California twice and Toronto and NY once each, reread all the Anne novels and for the first time ever completed my Goodreads challenge after discovering the magic of audiobooks, and watched at least five movies (two were about Captain America, and one was about these radical dames named Thelma and Louise!!!).

But mostly, it would appear, I watched TV. Almost all of it on my 13" Macbook pro, so precious and so wee. Some of it was the Giants winning their third championship in five years! And Timmy's second no-hitter!

The rest that I can recall is haphazardly documented below.

1. God, I just can't stand medialogging. I don't mind keeping track for myself so much, but formatting it and posting it somehow sucks out my soul. Which is too bad because I like HAVING medialogged. December, which I could never bring myself to bother with:

just like use your imagination and pretend I made this look nice )

In January the important thing is, I watched two more Ghiblis (Whisper of the Heart and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind). And racked up several dollars in library fines. These two items are related. Anyway, why make a medialog when I can make a babblelog, like so--
JANUARY BABBLELOG

2. I subjected myself, for reasons of science and/or boredom, to ye olde Girls (season one). Meta dickishness aside (and meta dickishness is something I am trying to keep from entering my discussion of anything new I walked uphill both ways on that road when I was a BSG child and I am tired), it is just your average show about obnoxious straight white ppl, of which there are thousands. It could even be something insightful about sheltered straight white ppl learning what a world they actually live in and grappling with what that means, like a continuation of Lindsay's story on Freaks and Geeks (another show about straight white ppl, also produced by Judd Apatow, with the same mom-actress in fact) but then it's like lol nm bye

3. this was secretly a segue so I could announce that I loved Allison Williams on The Mindy Project. I have really enjoyed the past three episodes of The Mindy Project. I love TR Knight on The Good Wife too! i'm really glad he didn't cease to exist or collapse into a puddle of ex-george o'malley mush. TGW: getting good again?? maybe?? someday??? KALINDA????? please

5. I enjoyed the last two PNRs more than I have enjoyed PNR in a while. I enjoy next week's episode title, "Ann's Decision" ... that she is gay!!!

6. BomB GIrls: I can't type I'm sick. I tried "Bomg" like five times right there. Betty McRae though!!, Kate your storyline will never make sense this show is better than last year but it's still basically kinda bad, all Corbetts and Gladii are assholes but I like Vera's storyline.

7. Elementary is back!!!!!
8. NEW GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
9. Concerning The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, many problems - meta dickishness most firmly aside.

if you're talking 'bout a Rachel, she better be me )

Oy gevalt.


Don't Trust The B in Apt 23, by the way, is a genuinely funny Bechdel-acing womance created by a queer woman of color. It's about a hardworking, innocent Midwesterner named June (Dreama Walker, who you may remember as Zach's evil girlfriend on The Good Wife) who moves to New York and becomes roommates with a chaotic neutral-edging-on-evil amoral conartist party troll named Chloe (Krysten Ritter, who you may know from that show we don't talk about or Breaking Bad), who is best friends with James van der Beek, who you may remember from being James van der Beek. (HE PLAYS HIMSELF AND IT IS GLORIOUS) Also the title comes from Robin (played by Liza Lapira who you may remember from Dexter or NCIS), the lady down the hall who doesn't so much think Chloe is a bitch as she's actually in love with her.

MOVIES

BOOKS
  • the end of the scarlet letter
  • the last third of the crimson petal and the white, michel faber
  • adventure time comix 1-4, ryan north
  • (first section of) always coming home, ursula k. le guin

TV as aired except where noted minus omnipresent crime procedurals and of course baseball
  • adventure time + hella rewatches
  • couple more around the world in 80 plateses
  • dance academy - seasons 1 & 2 (technically I watched the last two eps after midnight today)
  • futurama - last quarter of s6
  • hey arnold - "ghost bride/gerald vs. jamie-o"
  • mad men
  • my little pony: friendship is magic - episode one
  • the legend of korra

So, Dance Academy! That's a pretty good show. Australian teens + the high pressure world of professional dance training = basically early Grey's Anatomy-ish vibes (much more tolerable in actual teenagers than supposed adults) + Greek + lots of actual dance. Also, Asian male romantic lead + canon m/m + my current fav fictional girls. Thank u based Netflix Instant. #YULETIDE2012

I have a new DW layout and I love it. I love it. I want... to lick it... sh.

Media for May, a month in which I don't quite know what happened but surmise that I spent most of my time working, sleeping, or watching baseball:

BOOKS
  • blackout (mira grant)
  • most of the scarlet letter (nathaniel hawthorne) (reread) (finished today, shrug)
  • about a hundred more pages, the crimson petal and the white (michel faber)

TV that isn't crime procedurals - as aired except where noted
  • adventure time ("princess monster wife" twice and i think there were a couple other rewatches in there somewhere)
  • around the world in 80 plates (first episode + beginning of second before I ODed on obnoxiousness)
  • community
  • futurama ("moebius dick" wow i had no memory whatsoever of watching that thanks list)
  • legend of korra
  • mad men
  • new girl
  • parks and rec

  • parks and recreation

Relevant to yesterday's complaints, long interview with Robert & Michelle King of The Good Wife wherein they half-assedly admit/explain a bunch of the season's faults yet somehow manage to act like they couldn't help it ("it was the situation!" Yes.... the situation that YOU DECIDED UPON AND WROTE, geniuses.) Sideye.
