I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller...  
++ It's kind of hilarious when you get hit on at the most random of places. Yesterday I went to Borders and just went browsing about, didn't spend more than fifteen minutes there, when I was approached by this guy. What I find amusing about this is that he wanted to know what I was doing, and when I told him reading (which I was) he responded with "...really?" Which, I know, reading books in a bookstore? Shocking! That, and I was in the religion section of the store mostly for meta research, and I'm getting hit on by this guy. I don't know, I find that oddly amusing for some reason.

And no, he wasn't my type. Quite frankly if a guy is taken aback that you like reading books for fun then nope, they're definitely not on the list for me.

++ This is the funniest thing I've come across. *brb facepalming and loling*

++ Because how can I not post this? Misha explaining how he named one of his pet turtles via the HIHCon. From a dream he named his turtle Drydraluxlaloud, you guys. Drydraluxlaloud. Just, omg Misha! You are seriously too adorable I cannot stand it. ♥ ♥ ♥

++ I'm really really really excited for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I have watched the teaser trailer several more times and it keeps getting better and better. It still sucks that it's being split into two parts, because the wait between the first half and the second will be overwhelmingly painful, for sure. But the more I keep thinking about it, the sadder I become because then the Harry Potter saga will really truly be over. With no more books and no more movies, it'll be done. And this? Breaks my heart, to be honest. Harry Potter really was a huge influential part of my life, both a reflection of being part of fandom and with my own personal life. It really was something huge for my generation, those who grew up with the books, getting into the universe that J.K. Rowling created. It's continued for years and I don't expect it to go away because of how influential it has become all over the world, but just thinking about how there will no nothing else left coming out from it makes me kind of nostalgic and sadfacing right now.

What I fear though is that after the final movie comes out, we'll then have to fully deal with the plague that is Twilight. I'm sorry, but I really detest a series that advocates young girls and grown women to idealize after such an unhealthy relationship and not differentiating between fantasy and reality. *shudders*

To your Twilight point I say "oh my god YES!" because I just had a conversation with my li'l Widget today about that. And did you know that Edward is based on the Mormon messiah? There's like a long meta about it but seriously it's creepy.


But we also have the Percy Jackson movies, which I'm psyched about. You... have watched Percy Jackson, right? Greek gods in modern times? Shits 'n giggles up the wazoo.

LOL! Sin free sex toys? Well, I guess if you makes you feel less guilty.

And the HP previews look so EPIC!

Nothing brings out the love for God like screaming His name from the Holy Vibrator. ;)

This is gonna be the best yet, because it is the last and regardless I'm gonna have tears in my eyes after it ends. Not even gonna lie.

Reading books in a bookstore is extremely shocking, shame on you lol.

BUT THERE'S THE HARRY POTTER ENCYCLOPEDIA WHENEVER THAT COMES OUT! I miss new HP books and the book release parties.
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 1st, 2010 02:19 am (UTC)
I know, right? It's downright scandalous! ;p

THE BOOK RELEASE PARTIES! Oh God, those were fantastic, so amazing just being amongst fans of all kinds and expressing our love for the books. I'll be missing those, for sure. <3

That Christian sex toy thing is kind of weirdly awesome, idk. LIKE, THEY PRAY OVER IT. WHAT EVEN IS THAT.

"Drydraluxlaloud and... the other one." Oh Misha. <3333
Renée: Misha Collins. IDEK.rogueslayer452 on July 1st, 2010 02:43 am (UTC)
PRAY AT THE ALTER OF THE HOLY DILDO. IT IS THE CHRISTIAN WAY.

Kinda sounds like some weird religious sex cult thing, idek. It's so weird. And they think those who aren't religious are obsessed with sex, it's actually the other way around. lol

Misha is just adorkable love all around. ♥ It's like, I want to hear him talking about all the random shit that goes on in his life for hours.

LOL. I love it when that happens. I definitely got hit on when I was taking a bus from Boston to NH a couple weeks ago and it was like "What? No." I had never been happier that I was wearing my bigass headphones and couldn't hear the guy when he tried to talk to me.

Hey ONTD. Sex toys are legit, okay? Fun for the whole family...

MISHA COLLINS, WHAT ARE YOU. ♥ ♥ ♥

THE TRAILER IS KILLING ME. I've watched it so many times now and every time I feel just as breathless as the first (though I no longer sob uncontrollably as I watch, so that's probably good). Harry Potter has been inextricably entwined with my life for 11 years now, so it's going to be so surreal when it's over, but... At the same time, it's not really over, right? Because we still have those books and movies and now the theme park and there are just so many ways to relive it all, over and over again.

Also, fuck off, Twilight. I accept you in my life only because I read the books before they were popular and recognized all of their flaws and learned how to deal with them. This huge fad that it's become makes me feel so ill. I've always found the principles of the series to be offensive, as a feminist, a woman, and a fan of genuine vampire legend (not to mention as a writer, because wtf? How did she get published?). But the things I hear people say about the series now make me so, so nervous for the future of society. I say that not to be overdramatic, but because it's true.

I'm always caught off guard when it happens, I never quite know what to say in that situation. Even though now I kind of know when they're picking me up since they use the same line of "do I know you from somewhere?" which has me inwardly rolling my eyes.

Hey ONTD. Sex toys are legit, okay? Fun for the whole family...

Sex toys are the new family-friendly invention for the Christian household! XD

MISHA COLLINS, WHAT ARE YOU. ♥ ♥ ♥

A TULPA, EVIDENTLY. ♥

OMG THE THEME PARK YESSSS! \O/ I am so going to that whenever I get the chance, because how can I not? I want to buy like a robe and shit, tour everything they have there. It would be so surreal just wandering around because how often have we wanted to immerse ourselves into the Wizarding World? I mean seriously. It's gonna be SO FREAKING AWESOME! :D

But the things I hear people say about the series now make me so, so nervous for the future of society. I say that not to be overdramatic, but because it's true.

You and me both, bb. :/ The fact that people are praising the series, that parents are allowing their children, especially young girls, to read it and thinking it's something worthwhile is pretty damn insulting and it makes me weep for those that think this is anything good. There's a lot of faults and offensive things in those books alone, once you really take a step back and look at it. And just, ugh. I hate the batshit of the fans of the books/movies now, they are everywhere. Not just impressionable young girls but adult women who are overly obsessed with Edward and think he's "handsome and romantic." No, just hell the fucking no.

LOL at that guy at Borders. I am so with you- if a guy is surprised at reading, definitely not dating material.

HARRY POTTER HARRY POTTER HARRY POTTER! I CANNOT WAIT! I cannot believe it's going to all be over. So sad. I love it all so much. The universe is just so dense and fascinating- it's the kind of fictional world that you can just fall in to.

Twilight. Oh, Twilight. It's just so... I can go on about it for days. Every relationship has a really twisted aspect. The main character never has to face consequences for her decisions. It basically says being human is a lesser state and aging is the worst thing that can happen to you. Ugh. Ridiculous and terrible. I try to warn parents when they are buying them, but so many parents just get so excited about the fact that Bella doesn't have sex until after marriage, they let the rest fall to the wayside. /rant
Renée: Six. It's good to be a Cylon.rogueslayer452 on July 1st, 2010 06:34 am (UTC)
I kept thinking that I should have made some sarcastic remark or make some philosophical comment about what I was researching, just to see if he would understand a word I was saying. Though I highly doubt it. Somehow I felt like him and his buddy were only a Borders for the CDs and checking out girls...and thinking that girls can't read, evidently.

The universe is just so dense and fascinating- it's the kind of fictional world that you can just fall in to.

Exactly why I love it so much. There are many elements that draw you in, and it's just been a huge part of my life especially during my high school days. To see it coming to an end, both with the books and movies, is like really ending something that's been going on for many many years. It truly was the greatest part of our generation, and there's no doubt that it'll continue to be part of our lives so we can show it to the next generation and have them experience the wonderful world of Harry Potter, too. I have already decided I am going to do that with my own children. Because, how can I not? ;)

I try to warn parents when they are buying them, but so many parents just get so excited about the fact that Bella doesn't have sex until after marriage, they let the rest fall to the wayside.

See now, that kind of argument is just ridiculous and it makes me very pissed that that's what parents are more concerned about. Not the abusive relationship thing, not the stalker boyfriend who controls everything in that relationship, not the girl who doesn't have any character development and completely surrenders herself for a guy that is practically a pedophile, and that the werewolf declares love and marriage for their unborn daughter.....None of that even steps into a parent's red alert radar, oh no. It's because SHE WAITED UNTIL SHE GOT MARRIED TO HAVE SEX! WHICH WAS WHEN SHE WAS AT LEAST STILL 18 OR 19 YEARS OLD! *brb puking*

This is why we should have TWILIGHT: A CAUTIONARY TALE FOR GIRLS kind of label for the books. Any parent that truly thinks the books are great because of that haven't read it or just don't read between the lines. Or are idiots. Perhaps all of the above, really, judging from the lack of parenting that happens these days anyway.

MISHA DESERVES ♥_♥ FOREVER! AND THAT IS ALL.

Harry Potter? my first fandom, bb. well, i had slashed plenty before i was formally initiated into that fandom, but it was the first time i actively read fanfiction and not just wrote some m/m & f/f in my head. i'll mourn like a silly biatch once those movies come out. *gasps & sniffles*

as for Twilight? i've already seen that movie, except the girl was the stalky one, pining after the guy and that was called "Fatal Attraction." it's funny, because you give the dangerous stalker a vagina and suddenly it's not that romantic.

THAT IS ABSOLUTE TRUTH, BB.

Harry Potter was pretty influential for me on a personal level because I was in a pretty bad headspace in my life at a time. But once I picked up the first book I couldn't put it down, and it completely changed my entire outlook on many things in my life. So yeah, the entire world of Harry Potter has really made an impression on me as a whole and although it's never going to be gone from our lives, the fact that this is the final movie is like reliving the release of the final book all over again. ;__;

*clings to the series like a lifeline*

it's funny, because you give the dangerous stalker a vagina and suddenly it's not that romantic.

BUT DIDN'T YOU KNOW?! GIRLS WHO STALK THE GUYS ARE JUST WACKO WHILE THE GUYS WHO STALK ARE JUST SHOWING THAT THEY ~CARE ABOUT THE ONES THEY TRULY WUV! It really is sad seeing many young girls along with adult women who see the series as being "romantic" when it clearly is having so many bad messages. The fact that we have reports of young girls idolizing Bella and wanting to find "their Edward" is pretty much disturbing. :/
lloyd, i'm ready to be heartbrokensapphirestar_ on July 1st, 2010 03:26 pm (UTC)
the end of the potter era will definitely break my heart. i was really nervous about the last book - not because i thought it might be bad (because how could it?) but because that was the last potter book ever, and i'd grown up with these books and they'd always been such a huge part of my life, and then, suddenly, it was all over. but at least i had the movies to look forward to, but after part ii comes out next summer, it'll all be over. CUE THE TEARS AND HEARTBREAK.

but think about it like this! new twilight movies are coming out so fast that soon, there can't be many more. so you know, more than likely it'll all be over soon enough. of course, there'll be the silly fans and stuff, but that's okay, i can't not laugh at people who take that shit seriously anyway. :D
Renée: BSG. Six. Made of awesome.rogueslayer452 on July 1st, 2010 08:12 pm (UTC)
OMG I KNOW, LIKE SERIOUSLY! D: Like, I know it's not going to go away because hello, it's Harry Potter. But we were all in on the action during the years it was being created and released, both with the books and the films. Now nothing else will be as huge and as groundbreaking after this, which makes me kind of sad. But, the bright side? We know how influential the series has been and will continue to be long after this. :D

Still, bring on the tissues because I will be crying like a baby in the theater when it's all over.

but think about it like this! new twilight movies are coming out so fast that soon, there can't be many more. so you know, more than likely it'll all be over soon enough.

You know what? You're right. And it's not like they'll be as epic and groundbreaking like Harry Potter, plus with SMeyer becoming all butthurt recently about her own work I have a feeling that Twilight will be forgotten in several years time, save the batshit crazy fans who will continue wetting themselves over Edward.

Twilight makes me more than frown, bb. I'm just confused at how anyone can think it's something worth praising and getting obsessed about. When you hear the stories about the fans, it's just really scary. O_o
