I'm bored, must be Monday.  
Misha is being snarkalicious on Twitter again, and I love it. ♥

Oh, I randomly found someone that said they hate Misha because they found him rude based on the comments he's made on Twitter and some of the shenanigans that happened at conventions, and I just have to laugh at that. Some people might not get his sense of humor or be interested with him in general and that's fine, but to hate him? Bitches please. That's like saying you hate Stephen Colbert because you don't understand the satire behind his persona as Stephen Colbert. Come on, get real. It's impossible to hate Misha. Hating on Misha is like the equivalent to kicking a puppy, it's just horrible and wrong and there's no reason for it.

So anyway moving on from that, I stole this from cheerful_earl because after the television meme, it's time to move onto books!

Day 01 - A book series you wish had gone on longer and/or a book series you wish would just freaking end already

Samurai Girl by Carrie Asai

It had only six books in the series, and while it's probably enough to tell what needed to be told about Heaven and her story, somehow I can't help but feel like it could have been extended more. However, some series have that boundary line and don't need to go on forever, which I can respect because quality over quantity and all of that. I really enjoyed the series, as young adult books go they were entertaining, and the structure of them were fascinating (illustrations were also gorgeous, ngl).

As for a series I wish would just end, I honestly wish that the ghostwriter for V.C. Andrews would just cease writing underneath her name, or just writing altogether, since he's practically insulting everything VCA did with her creativity and brilliance in writing that I think she'd be rolling in her grave right now. It's just embarrassing.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat. I don't even understand feeling neutral towards Misha, how does one go about hating him?

Ooooooooooooooooooooooo, Book meme! I always love book recs/talks. <3

I don't even know, bb. :( I mean, I understand if people aren't fannish about him, but "hatred" is such a strong word to use. Misha hasn't done or said anything to even have someone even remotely dislike him. So I don't get it. But this is the SPN fandom, the irrational hate stems from something I don't understand or even want to understand.

Same here! :D Which is why I'm doing it. ;D

people who hate Misha have no souls. wtf. rude? he's funny and irreverent. he's probably a rockstar in Japan, so STEP OFF NO SOULER!
Renée: Misha. Whut?rogueslayer452 on August 17th, 2010 01:11 am (UTC)
They just don't understand or appreciate his sense of sarcasm. I mean, Misha is one of those rare actors that loves playing with the fans and will definitely ham it up when necessary (re: all the time, lol). And what's not to love about someone who is willing to do that?

Oh no. How can anyone hate that man with such lovely blue eyes and smile?

I'm quite puzzled at the amount of hate at Misha/Castiel. Neither of them ever did anything to generate such. My guess is that the haters are probably sick and tired of hearing about the squee on Misha/Castiel by their friends which in turn makes them feeling hateful.
Renée: Misha/Jensen/Jared.rogueslayer452 on August 17th, 2010 02:35 am (UTC)
I think it has something to do with the twisted notion that he's the "third wheel", getting between the Sam/Dean and Jared/Jensen relationship. At least, that's the general argument I've found amongst this fandom, especially amongst the Wincesters and J2 fans anyway. In fact, I've seen no legitimate argument about why people would have negative feelings towards Misha. It's just illogical irrationality.

LOL Hating on Misha is like the equivalent to kicking a puppy very apt analogy, how could any one hate someone so completly, absurdly adorable.
Renée: Misha Collins. IDEK.rogueslayer452 on August 17th, 2010 04:15 am (UTC)
Hee, well it does fit. ;p

Clearly anyone that hates on this adorable dorky man has absolutely no soul and a cold, black heart. I can't understand why anyone would, to be honest though. It's almost like some are just waiting to stir up wank in being ~edgy or whatever, but you never know with this fandom....

People who hate Misha because they seemingly do not get him and his sense of humor amuse me greatly. Almost as much as the people that hate him because omg he hogs the spotlight from the Js and can't seperate Misha from their Cas hate because omg this show should only be about Dean/Sam!
Renée: MISHA COLLINS BITCHES!rogueslayer452 on August 17th, 2010 04:24 am (UTC)
Yeah. Plus, I haven't seen any other explanation other than that argument alone, which is rather amusing, if just a tad frightening. This is why I stay on the fringes to avoid such arguments from those people, since it goes around in circles of OMG MISHA/CASTIEL IS RUINING THE SHOW IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE SAM'N'DEAN ONLY, NO OTHER CHARACTERS ALLOWED!!!111. Oh fandom, you be so redonkulous. *facepalm*

How does one go about hating Misha Collins? I almost want to delve into it like a sociology experiment, but I think it would end up too scary. Because he's Misha. He's funny and irreverent and smart. And he can be a total sweetheart too- he was so nice when I met him. He rallied his fans to raise money for Haiti. He sent people truffles. That he made himself.

Whatever. Haters gonna hate.

Yay, book meme! I will be interested to see if we have crossover here too, although we already do, because seriously- Fake!VC Andrews needs to go. Years ago.

Samurai Girl sounds awesome!
Renée: Misha. Are you fucking serious?rogueslayer452 on August 17th, 2010 07:44 pm (UTC)
For real now! Misha is like the most inoffensive person to ever grace this planet, and perhaps the entire known universe. But yeah, haters gonna hate for whatever reason they can justify.

Hehe, I bet there will be a few. ;D Yeah, the ghostwriter just has lost all touch with the originality of VCA's writing that it keeps resetting to the same story. Never mind how predictable the stories all are, and how wooden/cardboard the main characters are created to be. It's like yeah, whatever dude. Just stop.

I think you'd like Samurai Girl. ABC Family made a miniseries out of it a year ago or so.
Tinka: Misha smilegwaevalarin on August 17th, 2010 10:43 am (UTC)
How can anyone hate Misha? He's one of the kindest people I've ever met.
It seems there are still people who don't understand that Misha's Twitter persona is not Misha. But even then I don't understand the hate. Some people might dislike his sense of humour, okay. But hate? That's such a strong word.
Renée: Misha. Sees whut u did thar.rogueslayer452 on August 17th, 2010 07:51 pm (UTC)
Same here. He loves to joke around but when you meet him in person he's the loveliest, friendliest and nicest person ever. I still find it hard to believe that there are people who don't understand the meaning behind Misha's Twitter. I just don't get it, but whatever. Haters gonna hate, and the rest of us are just gonna frolic in the lovefest. <3333

True, as I've been guilty in doing the same. But I think some people carelessly throw around the word "hate" without having any real meaning behind it.

HAY HAY HAY, GURL! :D NICE TO SEE YOU BACK! No, I don't have either Facebook or Twitter yet, sadly.

lol, oh Lord your parents. They do realize that his show airs on Comedy Central at least? The fact that it's a political satire and he parodies conservatives and actually makes fun of their stupidity rather than support it? You'd think they would put two and two together, but alas, thus further demonstrates the stupidity of some Americans who will believe anything. No offense, since they are your parents, but seriously now. That just makes me facepalm and laugh so hard.

*hugs you* Welcome back to teh ELJAY, bb!

When Misha came to SPN, I loved him. Then, he moved to Twitter and his comments were a bit much. But then I learned to understand his humor and the way he was and now I can't get enough of Misha Collins. Its just a part of who he is. If some people can't understand that, then they shouldn't be a fan.

I see soo many of these 30 days memes and I feel like I should take part in some of them, but I always lose track and forget to post on them for days. Haha!
