Hey, I wanna rule my world.  
++ Hello to everyone from the new LJ friending meme!

++ I've been dealing with some personal things lately, some of it has taken a toll on me emotionally and psychologically. So if I haven't been around lately it's because of me trying to sort out my own thoughts and just needing time to myself. I try to distract myself with fandom and fannish interests, which is always my escape, and while it does help a little it's not always the guaranteed cure. Once I have things all sorted out, at least with myself on that front, I'll be back with posting on the regular as I have been.

++ Geeks Who Drink is a non-fiction show on Syfy, hosted by Zach Levi, which is essentially a competitive quiz-like show where two teams have to answer questions all relating to geeky and nerdy pop culture. And drinking alcohol. It's one of those shows that tests the knowledge of the contestants on various topics, only this time it's anything and everything related to fandom. It's really fun and entertaining to watch, and it really makes you want to participate because you know all the answers (which is always the case with these kinds of quiz competition shows, eh?) thus realizing just how fandom nerdy and savvy you actually are. Also, I tend to really like these string of shows on where it's all in good fun and nothing is totally serious. Things like Lip Sync Battle or @Midnight, just things to laugh and have a good time with.

++ So, um, I've been watching BBC's Robin Hood, mostly skipping through to seeing Guy of Gisborne's scenes because let's face it, Richard Armitage is the only reason why I am watching this in the first place. The show itself is utterly ridiculous and totally campy, but I was warned about that so it was to be expected. There are some entertaining moments here and there, but overall the show isn't exactly the best. But again, I'm only here for Richard/Guy, with his smirks and guyliner and leather and being constantly tied up. Yes. (◠‿◠✿)

I could never watch Robin Hood, even for Richard Armitage. It was just too daft and ridiculously bad, even for him!
Renée: John Thornton.rogueslayer452 on September 11th, 2015 07:34 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it really is. And it's why I just fast-forward just to his scenes, because I cannot handle everything else. Granted, even some of his scenes can be ridiculous with whatever is happening around him, but I cannot pass seeing his scenes for some reason. I need the blatant fanservice, lol. Also, I like that even with the bad writing he manages to make it work in places, because he is that actor who can do that.

I'm sorry life is hard right now. I hope things look up soon. *hugs*

Hope things start getting easier soon ♥

Geeks Who Drink sounds awesome! I hadn't heard of it but am now merrily downloading the first ep :D
Renée: BTVS. Buffy Summers.rogueslayer452 on September 11th, 2015 08:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you. :)

It really is. There is a lot of geek/nerdy/fandom like questions, and I like the setup of having the contestants getting a wee bit tipsy as the game goes on so it makes it a little more fun seeing how their reaction time of thinking of answers. And because this is Zach Levi, who has been hosting the Nerd HQ panels at SDCC for several years now, you know it'll be good.

Robin Hood was my first big fandom and it was so ridiculous and campy but I just loved the cast.


Hope you feel better soon, darling!

Renéerogueslayer452 on September 11th, 2015 08:32 pm (UTC)
I know that there are people who watched the show when it was airing and do have a fondness for it regardless, which I do understand because hey, who am I to judge over campy ridiculous things? I have several things that I know aren't necessarily good but I still love them anyway. But idk, I tried but I just can't get into it in that way, aside from just watching Guy's scenes because I am shallow that way, lol.

There is a great deal of amazing people cast on the show, Richard Armitage (obvs), Lucy Griffiths, Harry Lloyd (lol Viserys), Holliday Grainger and Lara Pulver, among some others.
we can't give up. that's the deal.: tamsin // 505omgpeyton on September 11th, 2015 08:31 pm (UTC)
I hope things get better for you babe. I hate when fandom isn't enough to distract me. It happens. :( Thinking of you!
Renée: Lost Girl. Kenzi.rogueslayer452 on September 12th, 2015 08:26 am (UTC)
Thank you, sweetie. *hugs*

And yeah, I usually turn to fandom since it is a form of escapism from reality, to ease my mind, but sometimes shit happens that ruins that enjoyment and it bums me out. :/

Sorry to hear things have been rough lately. I hope things get better soon!
Renée: Haven. Audrey Parker.rogueslayer452 on September 12th, 2015 05:41 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I'm certainly hoping so, as well. It just sucks when shit happens and you're left feeling, well, kind of down and sort of helpless in the situation.

Thank you, I hope so too.

And yes, you definitely should. I just discovered it myself and it's quite fun, better than I expected it to be. :)

Thank you. I do, as well.

*Offers hugs*

Richard Armitage is ridiculously hot in that.
Renée: John Thornton. Brooding.rogueslayer452 on September 12th, 2015 05:56 pm (UTC)
*receives and accepts all the hugs*

He is, indeed. I mean when isn't he ridiculously attractive that should be the question, but there is something about the guyliner and leather. He just makes it work. UNF.

Thank you, and I will. It's just one of those unfortunate uncontrollable real life things that you have to deal with, and I'm hoping that things will start looking up soon.

Ohh, I didn't know the Geeks show was with Zach Levi, suddenly I'm interested. XD

Also: /hugs :)

Yeah, it's one of the rare Syfy non-fictional shows among their programming that I actually am enjoying. Zach being the host makes sense, considering him hosting the Nerd HQ panels and such, so it's a perfect fit. It's entertaining and hilarious, and it's one of those things where you can kind of play along at home. It's fun, you should totally check it out when you can. :)

I hope things get better for you. I just accidentally came across your blog from a friends page i was reading.

Goodluck with what you're dealing with, hun. I so understand that it's not easy to deal with things like that, but I hope that you manage and that fandom will be good to you. I'm thinking of you in the mean time.
Renéerogueslayer452 on September 17th, 2015 07:06 pm (UTC)
Thank you, babe. ♥

Things have gotten a bit better, and I'm managing as well as I can be at the moment. It's just you hit those rough patches in life and it can suck a lot out of you, you know? But I've managed to find some other distractions in the meantime, so thank goodness for that.
