Feng Shui up the Yin Yang.  
++ My non-spoilery reaction to Dollhouse: HOLY FUCKING SHIT! They just cannot cancel this show, not after the epicness that was this episode. No frakking way. It has to be renewed, it has to without a doubt, with only one episode left and much to be answered and revealed. Also, the reasoning for the downward of ratings with epic episodes like this? People need to start watching the show! For serious y'all. Some have dropped it because the first few episodes were lackluster, which I understand, but people these last several have been MOTHERFUCKING EPIC that it's killing me.

I probably might do a Dollhouse spam soon just to show y'all how crazyawesome it is. Seriously.

++ I'm still trying to heal from Supernatural, you guys. It was all kinds of amazing and awesome but, my heart still hurts. I have more meta regarding that part so, uh, yeah. Later with that. In the meantime, for anyone that feels the same way I am at the moment I recommend reading The Unraveling by the lovely tracy because damn. It is frakking amazing. ♥ And for schmooping shipper hearts, here's Ten Reasons To Love Dean/Castiel, because they are love.

++ Most randomest question ever, but does anyone miss the days of the boy band craze? I'm not talking about these punk-rock bands that have invaded the music scene in recent years. I'm talking about those old school boy bands from way back in the day. Like New Kids On The Block, Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, Five, O-Town, 98 Degrees, 2Gether, LFO, Hanson, Dream Street? Remember them? I know they were cheesy pop songs, but damn they were so addictive that it didn't matter whether you liked the genre or not people would just dance to it and know all the lyrics to. I found those bands more appealing that some of the emo/rockish bands of today, y'know? I want the classic boy band craze to make a comeback.

ETA: And yes, I'm fully aware of the Jpop/Kpop pop boy groups (like Super Junior, 2PM, Big Bang, among the girl groups that I love like Wonder Girls, KARA, Girls Generation, etc.) since I do listen to them time and again. Believe me, I know of the happy/cheerful/cheesy music which I love so much. I'm just speaking in the overall sense of the American music industry and how they should return to the pop groups/bands again sometime soon, that's all.

I loved Dollhouse. LOVED. It keeps getting better and I cannot even imagine it being cancelled. Why are people ignoring it but still watching crappy shows? PEOPLE DON'T DO THIS TO ME.

Hee, I still listen to lots of boybands. Hanson (... who, okay, are actually genuinely good now, IMO), BSB, NKOTB, O-Town, and more. I still love the late 1990s pop more than I should.

BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS, THAT'S WHY! D: But yeah, I couldn't believe the statistics from last night's ratings, which have been the lowest throughout the whole season. OMGSAYWHUTNAO?! That episode blew everything outta the park, f'reals. I know that DVR ratings have gone up but, yeah. The ratings system sucks overall. DOLLHOUSE NEEDS TO STAY, CAUSE IT IS AMAZINGLY AWESOME. TRUFAX.

I love all sorts of music but pop music ('90s especially) is probably one that I am not ashamed to still loving, even if it's cheesy teenybopper kinds of stuff. Don't care, if it has a good beat and addictive I am there listening to it on repeat. Boy bands need to make a comeback, f'reals. I miss those days.
Jen: dh. a+d. and all I see are dark eyes.snowfire on May 3rd, 2009 01:50 am (UTC)
It's insane. I don't know how it's DROPPING. I can understand if it were staying stable or something after episode 6, but the fact that it's falling every single week is bewildering to me. Are we the only ones who realize how freaking awesome it is COME ON, YOU GUYS. (but I agree, the rating system fails. Why haven't they figured out a better one yet?)

Pop is fun. I like bouncy, cheerful music sometimes. I also still listen to things like B-Witched and Steps and the like, so .... (and the idea of inflicting Britney Spears on my future children like my parents inflicted their music on me delights me!) I preferred those days much more than the rap and emo that's popular now.
Renée: Cylons. By your command!rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 02:06 am (UTC)
Srsly! Like wtfrak folks? Really now. FOX needs to put it on another day and timeslot, because this Friday night business is just ridiculous. I want this show to be renewed because with everything they're doing, the directions and twists and turns, for it to NOT return would be a huge mistake.

Also? Getting the word out that Dollhouse IS TEH SHIZNITZ. For reals.

I do like rap/hip-hop but, the emo? LAME. I mean sure there will be a few songs here and there that I like from those certain bands but, overall? I don't want depressing music. I want happy/bouncy/cheerful stuff! Sad songs don't have to be whiny, y'all, like srsly. AND YES I WILL BE BRAINWASHING MY CHILDREN ONE DAY WITH ALL OF IT TOO! There will be no emo in my house.

Dollhouse was so good last night!! I'm so glad I stuck with it.

Edit: Aww, I do miss cheesy boy bands sometimes. And I love that you listed 2Gether among them.

Renée: DH. Echo. Blank slate.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 01:40 am (UTC)
Wasn't it just epic? I can't believe that we only have one episode left (which technically there are TWO LEFT but FOX are being douchebags and not airing the real last one). I hope it gets renewed, because I want moar dammit, moar!

Hee, how could I not place 2Gether on that list? They were awesome and a guilty pleasure of mine. ;)
Nicole Anell: dollhousenicole_anell on May 3rd, 2009 01:44 am (UTC)
Arrgh, at least the special finale will be on the DVD. I'm really psyched about next week's episode (I may even watch it live!) for the first time since watching the show.

(I know my calculus... it says U + me = us!)

Wheee! :D

(or, the hardest part of breaking up...is getting back your stuff!) XD

My heart still hurts too. D:

And for schmooping shipper hearts, here's Ten Reasons To Love Dean/Castiel, because they are love.

I watched that video before. It's kinda hilarious, because the first reason is "Dean takes Castiel at his word" and then it shows Castiel telling Sam that if he doesn't stop Sam, the angels will, and then shows Dean repeating the warning to Sam. Yes, Castiel threatened to kill Sam and Dean took the threat seriously, THIS IS WHY THEY ARE OTP LOLOLOLOL
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Serene.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 02:13 am (UTC)
I kinda chuckled at that too, I mean there are plenty of other reasons why Dean/Castiel are OTP (eyesexing, space invading, Castiel appearing to Dean whenever he can...) but somehow that was what made the first of the top ten, as if anyone but Castiel making the same threat wouldn't have him taking it seriously. lol
icecoldrain: Supernatural - Dean and Castielicecoldrain on May 3rd, 2009 02:11 am (UTC)
Sometimes I miss the boy bands, they were so cheesy and fun, and some of the music was actually good. Now there's the "punk" band craze, what's next? Wasn't it "emo" for a while? lol.
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 02:17 am (UTC)
Emo and punk are the craze these day, which is cool if someone likes those genres of music but, it just doesn't appeal to me, imo.

Yeah, the thing is with those kinds of pop music they were meant to be overkill with the cheesiness. But even with some of the cliched lyrics they were just...fun. Fun to dance to, to sing along with, to just listen to when you're having a bad day and need a pick-me-up. Yeah. I still listen to pop whenever I can, new or old school doesn't matter. I loves me some cheesy pop. Hee.
icecoldrain: Supernatural - Dean and Castielicecoldrain on May 3rd, 2009 02:27 am (UTC)
I don't mind whatever genre the music I listen to is, because what matters is that I like the song and not like, oh it's emo so I can't like it lol. It's all those people who are all "YEAH I LIKE HARD ROCK ONLY!" while listening to pop-rock crack me up.

Yeah, even though everyone was crazy about it, who cares. I loved BSB lol. Remember that song backstreets back? I was like, 'were they gone or something?' when it came out lol. There's nothing wrong with cheesy pop, I was just listening to o-town the other day lol.
Renée: Kpop. BoA. Fierce.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 02:38 am (UTC)
I'm usually like that too, since I have a wide range of musical tastes from pop and hip hop to classical and instrumental and international. But the emo scene just isn't my thing. I do like a few songs here and there from some of those bands, but other than that I don't care for them. Heh.

Remember that song backstreets back? I was like, 'were they gone or something?' when it came out lol.

Actually, they became an international success when they went to Europe after being discovered in the US, once they did tours in Europe and Asia they came back to the States which lauched their popularity here and worldwide. That is why they were all "Backstreet's back ALRIGHT!" ;D WHY AND HOW DO I KNOW THIS STUFF IDEK OKAY!! XD

icecoldrain: Supernatural - Dean and Castielicecoldrain on May 3rd, 2009 02:42 am (UTC)
Yeah, some people are strange. No one only listens to one type of music lol. Okay, there's probably only a small amount of people who do, but everyone else listens to a variety.

I know that, but when it first came out, I was like were they gone? Then I was a BSB fan and knew! That's why you know, we were BSB-ers lol. Speaking of BSB, remember that interview about how AJ's foot got run over by a van? I lol'd so hard over it.
Renée: Castiel. Cute and sneaky.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 02:46 am (UTC)
The few that do are what you'd call music snobs or elitist, which is bullshit. Everyone has tastes and likes and dislikes, but to listen to just ONE particular music genre? That's kinda bland and lame. Diversity, is what makes the world go 'round.

Oh, I thought you didn't know. My bad! XD Yes, BSBers we be (even though my sis is the bigger BSG fan than me, so she might recall that interview than I can, hee).
icecoldrain: Supernatural - Dean and Castielicecoldrain on May 3rd, 2009 02:52 am (UTC)
That's kinda bland and lame.
I agree, and talk about this one music genre with pride, like only having one is awesome. Some people listen to their music, and then one day they wonder why they liked it in the first place and ditch it out lol.

lol, that interview was on one of their CD's, along with other interviews and music videos. Most of my friends were into nsync, and I had to listen about them all the time. When Lance Bass came out that he was gay, I called my friend who was convinced he was going to marry her, and was like I heard your man dumped you lol.
The Large Purple Weedtracy on May 3rd, 2009 04:51 am (UTC)
Aww, thanks for the rec, love. ♥ And the vid rec, too, I will go watch that in a bit!

I promise to catch up with Dollhouse over the summer.

And ahhhhhh, omg I WAS SUCH A BSB JUNKIE. Jesus, I embarrassed myself amazingly by singing along to BSG songs, but WHATEVER. :))
Renée: Agathons. Happily ever after.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 09:08 am (UTC)
You're welcome bb. You deserve the recs, because you are just that awesome. ♥

You better! It's great, especially as it progresses into the season.

THERE IS NO SHAME IN SINGING ALONG THE BSB, GIRL. EMBRACE IT! XD It doesn't matter if it's on CD or on the radio or wherever I am, I end up either singing or humming along, because those kinds of pop songs always get stuck in your head because of how addictive they are. And it is awesome.
rawthorne on May 3rd, 2009 08:27 am (UTC)
psst, get into kpop/jpop. Boy bands (the cheesy N'Sync kind) are very much en vogue there yonder.

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B.

Exhibit C.
Renée: Kpop. BoA. Fierce.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 08:43 am (UTC)
Oh I know bb, I'm already invested in kpop/jpop and even cpop. I know their boy bands are major with that kinda stuff. I'm just speaking in general terms for the US music industry to make a comeback again with the cheesetastic boy bands and such. ;D
rawthorne on May 3rd, 2009 08:45 am (UTC)
Eventually they will. One hopes.

Have you jumped on the Boys over Flowers bandwagon yet?

DOLLHOUSE! My brain was like melting (because a) mindfrak, whut and b) omg how hot is Alan Tudyk in that shirt?!) If it gets cancelled I'll go nuclear on Fox's ass.

-sings- ♫I like girls that wear Abercrombie&Fitch♫
I miss those days too with the happy music and the cheesy lyrics and music videos (gawd I was like such a ginormous Westlife/O-Town fangirl it's slightly embarrassing)
Renée: Echo/Sierra. BFFs.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 08:56 am (UTC)
OMG IKR? Totes mindfrak, which I love. ALAN DID LOOK MAJORLY HOT! I lol'd with him being all stoned!hyper, and then when he went all teh crayzah I went all O_O HOLY HELL. MOAR HAWTNESS. And srsly, if they end up not picking the show up I will be RANTING and RAGING.

Happy music, cheesy lyrics, hilarious music videos with mucho dancing. *sighs* I love it all, and I don't care who frakking knows! XD
jirucloud on May 3rd, 2009 04:36 pm (UTC)
Umm... you should just move to j-pop and k-pop and c-pop for your boy band fix~~ like my guys, Shinhwa

or you could remember that comeback Backstreet boys did? lol
Renéerogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 05:14 pm (UTC)
I already do listen to jpop/kpop/cpop. I'm just speaking in the general sense for the US music industry, bb.
jirucloud on May 3rd, 2009 05:23 pm (UTC)
lol! I didn't know, sorry ♥ ♥ You know I just like the chance to pimp some music~~ lol

I get in grooves where I listen to all those old songs, but the rap scene is more profitable here, I think...
Renée: Kpop. BoA. Fierce.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 05:38 pm (UTC)
Well, you know that I do listen to some Asian artists (BoA, Namie Amuro, Wonder Girls whom I post about more often) so I would've assumed you knew I listened to those groups/artists already. Heh.

But there's nothing wrong with pimping out artists you love. I do that frequently. ;)

Yeah. The rap/hip pop and their counterpart emo/punk seem to be more profitable and popularized by the mainstream in recent years in the States than anywhere else at the moment. I mean sure, I listen to those and I also listen to pop music as well, but it appears Asian pop music is more popular than American pop. Which I find interesting in that statistic sense. Huh.

jirucloud on May 4th, 2009 12:06 am (UTC)
I always remember you talking more about Momo BSG than music, lolol~ *dies*

It is interesting... it seems to me that it fluctuates between pop being popular (American idols heyday and Kelly Clarkson) and rap... like, every couple of years, you know? lol~~ I don't know if boybands will come back here, but at least pop might...

nesdy on May 3rd, 2009 06:48 pm (UTC)
Dollhouse has become such a great show!!! I'll be devastated if it gets cancelled! These last three episodes have been soooooo good!

The Supernatural season finale is going to be so painful to watch u.u
Renée: Castiel. Halo.rogueslayer452 on May 3rd, 2009 07:18 pm (UTC)
Seriously. I mean c'mon, FOX knows that Fridays are deathslots for new shows, so why they decided to have Dollhouse there idek. It seems good shows always end up dying on that network. :/

IT WILL BE VERY PAINFUL. OMGWHUT. D:
