I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] aesc for the Eight Days of Happy meme an age ago. I refuse to fail at it this time! *resolve face*

Day One

I uploaded this for Aitches the other day and realized that everyone who might be having a rough day or a rough week or a rough year should be in possession of this movie. It's the ultimate comfort movie, long and fun and gorgeous and easy to curl up around in the afternoon while you nosh on a cookie. It's not made just for kids, it's made for everyone, and believe me when I say you will finish this movie and feel warm.

Note: The file size might seem a little bit daunting, but that's because you can watch in either Japanese or an English dub. Rejoin with HJ-split and enjoy. :D

I imagine this meme has already made the rounds, so I'm not tagging anyone, but if you'd like to do this, consider yourself poked. Oh! And another note: I suddenly have a Dreamwidth account, thanks to my lovely [livejournal.com profile] villainny! Unsurprisingly, I'm unamaga over there too - so original! still apparently hard to spell! Come friend me if you'd like; I'm still getting used to all the complications of having a "circle" instead of friends, and only being allowed six userpics after having over a hundred does lead me to make sad duck faces, but it's pretty nice over there.

Things wot I have learned today:

  1. I am still so emotionally invested in Sam and Dean, even though I like to pretend I'm not. I haven't been able to change the songs on my iPod since I got my new computer, since it's the only copy I have of all the old stuff that was on Elphaba before she kicked it, and so I still have tons of the music I listened to religiously that meant Sam&Dean to me. While writing in the Library today, I had it on shuffle and Brothers On a Hotel Bed came on, and I started sniffling. I really hope the finale tears my heart out in a good way - the kind of way that IMToD did - and not in an "oh, Eric Kripke, how do you get funding" way. I'm insanely worried.

  2. [livejournal.com profile] schneestern thinks I should make out with [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1 at Shore Leave.

  3. Rereading an author's entire body of work is very satisfying. The past three days have seen me going through [livejournal.com profile] thegrrrl2002's website, and can I just say that if you're new around here and haven't stumbled upon it yet, her and [livejournal.com profile] yin_again wrote wristband porn. I always forget, and then it hits me over the head like a very, very attractive plank of wood.

  4. Hot, humid weather makes me want to listen to the Juno Soundtrack. It's so...sunshine-y. If that's a word. Which it isn't, but whatever. Here it is for you, in case you haven't yet experienced its awesome.

  5. August Rush is an incredibly awesome movie; you should all see it if you can. Robin Williams was fabulous, mostly because I would never, ever expect that kind of role from him, and Kerri Russel keeps amazing me lately with how absolutely beautiful she's become. Not that she wasn't pretty before, but when you see her on the screen with her cello in August Rush, it's just - wow. Stunning. The entire main cast stunned me, actually. Freddie Highmore is so young to be playing such a big part, but he pulled it off and left me madly in love with August.

Metric - Calculation Theme, a song that I'm really enjoying today. :>

Yesterday morning, while waiting for the train on the platform with about twenty people clustered around me in a big knot, I was struck by an idea for fic. The only thing I had with me was my Stargate Atlantis tie in novel. I ended up writing smut on the inside covers, leaning on my own thigh while standing up, as a few interested parties tried to peer over my shoulder discretely. Oh, zany life.

Last night, Julie and I watched Indiana Jones. I am a heathen and had never seen it before (let's not even talk about my lack of Star Wars, because I think someone will actually stone me). It was fantastic fun, though, and I now understand the Harrison Ford thing, even though I'd always gone, "Ummm," when people talked about him before. And, well, because Julie and I are...Julie and I, the conversation inevitably turned to John Sheppard. My one track mind, let me show it to you. )

So I guess my real point here is: why hasn't fandom provided me with a John that carries a whip and wears a fedora?

My life: complete. I found this horrible looking movie called Attack of the Monsters in the dollar bin at Walmart, and apparently it's part of this amazing "Gamera" series - Gamera being the EARTH-PROTECTING TURTLE FROM SPACE WHO HAS MAGICAL LASER EYES AND TUSKS AND SOMETIMES PULLS HIS ARMS AND LEGS INTO HIS SHELL IN ORDER TO SHOOT BLUE FLAMES FROM ALL HOLES. You guys. I just. It's so beautiful I think I could cry.

''Hip-hooray, the cannibals are gone!'' )

Ahh, my childhood is on HBO! The Sandlot! I have a feeling that maybe this movie wasn't meant for little girls, especially the Wendy Peffercorn bits, but that didn't stop me from loving it with all of my might. (Especially the Wendy Peffercorn bits. Cough.) Ahaha, I failed so badly at being a little girl.

My boooys! Ahaha, god they were all so endearingly stupid. )

A few songs to remember by:
Booker T and The Mg's - Green Onions
Jay & The Americans - This Magic Moment
Ray Charles - America the Beautiful
The Champs - Tequila
The Surfaris - Wipe Out
The Tokens - The Lion Sleeps Tonight

I am in England! In [livejournal.com profile] immoralilly's bed! You're so jealous.

Flight wasn't that horrible, although I was bored out of my mind for half the way. It's very, very hard to listen to erotic podfics when you are hemmed in by stodgy old folks and hacking children. Who'd have thought? British Airways is pimping, though, for serious. They have a movie library in the little screen on the back of the seat in front of you. They had Aladdin for god's sake! I watched Stardust for the first stretch and it was glorious, absolutely and completely awesome. I already had a thing for Claire Danes, but now - yeah. Woah.

Also, we went and saw Enchanted at the local theater tonight and it was equally incredible. Robin's downloaded the entire soundtrack, and the two of us keep randomly bursting out with things like, "AND WHEN HE SANG!" or, "THE LITTLE GIRL'S FACE OH MY GOD!" or, "VERMIN!" The last probably won't make much sense unless you've seen it, but dear flist, it is well worth seeing. You should seriously consider going out right now.

You know what else you need to see right now? The Kung-Fu sex scene [livejournal.com profile] immoralilly showed me from [livejournal.com profile] weepingcock. I laughed so hard I started choking, it is that horrifyingly awesome. Aaaahahaha. Oh, internets, never change. ♥
