Looking for an awesome movie to go see? Want one written by a lady about strong women that passes the Bechdel test and is a fairytale without being a traditional m/f love story and features female relationships and magic and a male/female platonic friendship and beautiful scenery and empowers the ladies and their relationships with each other?

Then go see Maleficent. It was fantastic. It left me feeling good about being a woman and that is a precious gift from mainstream Hollywood.

- I can has a job! I'm officially a substitute teachers. Mostly I tell 11-13 olds to be quiet, sit down, dont touch that, no you may not go to the bathroom, no i dont care what your teacher normally does because this is what we're doing today, no you may not work in groups, and if you're going to talk to me you can look me in the eye because thats what civilized people do when they have a verbal discourse. Then I get to move them to different seats around the room, write their names down, send them to different teachers or call an administrator to come "deal with them."

However, there are shining moments when I get to teach, though its not always related to the subject matter. I got to stop a a kid in a social studies class who told someone they were worthless and should kill themselves and tell them and the rest of the class why they should never, EVER, talk like that using my life and my loss as an example. In a math class, after overhearing a small argument, I broke it up then I explained why calling a guy a "girl" to insult him along with any other feminine based insult is actually degrading to women and lowering both them as men and as human beings and showing the girls that yes, this is a bigger problem than it looks like. That same class I also explained what a parallelogram is and how its different from a rhombus to a problem case who was giving me tzurus ten minutes before but is sitting with me at the desk taking rapt notes now because I have answers in a different way of describing it than his math teacher did.

And sometimes, like today, you have a horrible day where the kids curse and storm out and cuss at each other and actually cheer when you leave but then, in your last period - there's a tiny moment of light. They're doing a packet on Leonardo da Vinci and when they're done they ask "well now what do we do?" Read? Draw? Talk very quietly amongst yourselves? Or we could talk about da Vinci and how he wasnt just an artist but also a crazy genius who designed things a crazy death scythe chariot, a machine gun, and robots. Most of the class chose to do the first three but I had one boy come from the VERY back of the class, with his chair, set it down in front of me and say "Tell me more about Da Vinci." And in the 20 minutes left in class I covered with this kid - iconographic art and the transition to more realistic renaissance portraiture and scenes(ala the last supper), the advent of the printing press, medieval medicine, the limited understanding of the human body, the value of the vitruvian man, the working helicopter models da Vinci came up with, and how on top of being a genius, this was the point in history when people were starting to realize that the world around them was bigger than just their homes and neighbors. He sat there, when he could've been in the back with his friends chatting, with me talking about these historical things, and at the end of the class wanted to know more to the point that I got to direct him to the library. That one kid made my whole freaking day worth getting up for. Well that and the money, obvs. :P

-Everybody holding up okay after MikeyWaygate2013? Man. That could've been avoided if he had a sassy gay friend. Seriously Mikey - what what what are you doing? Look at your life, look at your choices. Sucks that its happening because the two of them were always so....lovely when I saw them together. I'm not judging because DBT teaches no judgement and I'm trying to practice that. I still love this band a stupid degree. Doesnt affect the way I look at them as artists although I'm less physically attracted to Mikey now. Mostly, I feel markedly bad for Alicia because she was nothing but kind and friendly to me every time we met. If she was anything near as nice to her friends as she was to a strange little fangirl like me, then she definitely doesnt deserve this kind of hurt. So for that, I has a sad :(

-My mom is far less verbally abusive and is almost back to normal. Like she was possessed - Supernatural style - and Sam and Dean snuck in and exorcised her without me noticing. YAY! Avoiding her is really helping but she's more relaxed now I've got a job. My dad is still mindfucking her over the divorce stuff (even though they signed the papers 10 years ago - they're still in court. Yeah.) That should be getting closer to the end soon. The trial is next month. My sister is currently in town. BEHOLD! A PICTURE OF US! I am the heavy set one in stripes. She is the beautiful one. Seriously. Very glad she's here but there's now 3 of us in 2 bedrooms. *facepalm* this apartment isnt built for that.

-Mental health: waxes and wanes. The very best way to get ahold of me is to chat with me via gchat, aim, yim etc because when I get low, I dont post here on LJ or DW for weeks because of, well, the depression. Then I stick to tumblr where I reblog pictures of Teen Wolf, Avengers, and OUAT characters sometimes with snarky commentary. I'm on a new cocktail and it seems to be working for now though.

-Addicted to Hollyoaks. Like badly. Like - I went back to 2011 and have been watching the full half hour eps in order. Send help?

-For later! I wrote since last we spoke. 2 for The Hour during Yuletide, and at least 3 for Teen Wolf that isn't up here but I'll do an official posty thing for them when its not almost 5am. Also there are TMI sex things I want to blog/talk to you guys about they're long and thinky and TMI so again, not for 5am. This whole area is for next post.

-Things are a hot mess all over - but with my new job, my old crazy, my sister in the house, MikeyWaygate2013, and all the other craziness that is going on in my world (and there's more but its too day-to-day to detail), I signed up for the words and deeds meme and thats my thread. I could use some of this for a push through to the other side to Tuesday (when my sister will have left for Colorado, I dont know why she's going, and my mom will have left for Florida and the trial and will not be getting her negative scary on me).

-Lastly, you guys Warm Bodies comes out Friday in the US. It's a zom-rom-com. Oh yeah. Zombie romantic comedy. If you can go see it, please do. We want this one to do well so it will encourage the studios to make smarter more interesting movies rather than the same crap over and over. Plus, John Malkovich is in it, and along with Nicholas Hoult(the kid from About A Boy who grew up, got hot, and then was on Skins) and Rob Cordry as zombies yes.

So! I watched some STUFF this week. I finally saw the Losers and oh, you guys. Jake Jensen, Col. Clay, Pooch, Roque, Aisha. Gorgeous, amazing, hilarious, fabulous fucking movie that only makes me want Avengers more than ever because Chris. Evans. I love you and everything you do. You work best in a team environment and I can't wait for you to come back on my cinema screen. Also, Jeffrey Dean Morgan should get to smile and have sex in more things. Why doesnt he do that more often? Anyway, moral of the story: I need the source material and I need it now. WHY ARE COMPLETE VOLUMES OF COMICS SO EXPENSIVE? *will probably wait until ComicCon and get it on sale from wherever*

Also watched Walking Dead with [livejournal.com profile] guest_age. To quote First Wives Club in regards to my feelings "I HAVE ALL OF THEM". I dont really know how to deal with that show. It's disturbing and sexy and sad and brilliant and enfuriating and all of the things TV should be. In exchange, I've got her watching Dexter. That's a fun exercise in "watching your best friend spazz like a six year old." Seriously, ever other second she's hitting me with questions. It's adorable. "Is Deb the Ice Truck Killer?" "Is Masuka the Ice Truck Killer?" "Is it Angel? Because so far he seems like a good suspect." "Its his dad isnt it! He faked his death and now he's testing Dexter TELL ME IM RIGHT! HAVE WE AT LEAST MET THE GUY/GIRL ON SCREEN YET?"

:D Not going to lie - I'm enjoying her reaction more than the actual show - and I love that show.

Anyway, I start outpatient next week. Yay? /o\

So, tonight Teresa and I went to the Soho Theater to see Shappie Khorshandi do stand up. We got there about an hour early because seats are first come first serve. While we're standing in line, Alan freaking Rickman walks down from the upstairs where he must have seen an earlier show. THIS GUY IS SO FREAKING AMAZING YALL! HE WAS HANS GRUBER! THE METATRON! PROFESSOR SNAPE! HE IS RIGHT THERE YOU GUYS! Teresa just kinda stared and I was like "omg hold my hoodie" for a second, and scurried after him and his group as they went into the theater bar. From there I did the stuttery, ridiculous fangirl thing of telling him what a fan I was and asking for an autograph, all flustered. He gave me one ♥ and I told him I'd been a fan since Dogma, which made him smile hugely at me and then hurried away because I dont want to be a bother. But still. AWESOME OH MY GOD!

In other news, my mother arrives on Saturday. YAY! I missed her and she's going to enjoy London so much.

Also - I am craving McDonalds. Desperately. There arent words you guys. We're talking for the last week to two and all the time. I cannot stop thinking about it. WTF IS UP WITH THAT YOU GUYS?! Anyway :D How are you guys?!

Um, more rambling about my mental illness or whatever the hell this thing that is my brain chemistry is? Feel free to wander on. I would if i could so I totally understand. But if you've ever taken Trileptal and feel okay telling me your experience - I'd really appreciate it.  ) I really do remember NOT being insane once upon a time. So maybe blogging like this will help me get back?

I dont know. Whatever. In totally unrelated news - I'm dying for someone to crossover Venture Bros and Inception - Arthur could totally have been OSI before he went all rogue. I BET HE EVEN HAS A PERMIT TO #2 FOR COBB FROM THE GUILD OF CALAMITOUS INTENT! Suits are like his supervillain costume and...yeah... mania isn't good for me.

Speaking of Inception - JGL and his hotness reminded me to (500)Days of Summer with my mother tonight. It was cute, we both really enjoyed it. But after the elevator scene where Summer compliments Tom on his taste in music for liking the Smiths, my mother who is usually fairly in the know turns to me and goes "Are they a real band?"
Me: The Smiths?
Her: Yeah. Are they real or did they make them up for this movie?
Me: *stares horrified* Are you kidding me?
Her: Sorry for not being cool enough.
Me: I'm blogging this.
Her: No you are not!
Me: I know you were young in the 80s. They were like...They were the Smiths. It was them and the Cure blazing alternative trails, Ma. Like, 81.
Her:Hey, in '81 I had been listening to Prince before anyone else I knew realized how amazing he was. And old school rap.
Me: *blinks* What? You don't like rap.
Her: *shrugs* Columbia High School was in inner city Atlanta in the early '80s. I listened to what my students listened to.

*sighs* I educated her about the Smiths. And I was super glad to be home to have that conversation at all. I kinda love her a lot.

Due date on all of the above? TODAY!

I AM SO GOOD SOMETIMES I SCARE MYSELF! *flops*

While I was doing the above, I watched Jennifer's Body. ) I will share my favorite quote from the whole fucking movie, though. It's bandom relevent. Do you know how hard it is to make it as an indie band these days? There are so many of us, and we're all so cute and it's like if you don't get on Letterman or some retarded soundtrack, you're screwed, okay? Satan is our only hope. *snickers* SO PRICELESS. *snaps fingers* SOMEONE BRING ME A FAUSTIAN AU!


Tomorrow I have so fucking much to do its unreal.

  • Between 3 and 4 I'm going to No Regrets to see the first sketch for my marionette tattoo(I think I left my driver's license there - I gotta find out :-/)

  • I have to gather my resources for the paper I need to write for the Holocaust class.

  • I have to do my laundry

  • I have to pack

  • I have to empty my car to make room for Robyn

  • I have to clean up before we leave

  • Something else, I'm not sure what



I am feeling this poem today. I dont know why. "All I Have Ever Done Is Write You Love Poems" by Ishle Yi Park



And I always always always come back to this one, If Only Out of Vanity by Staceyann Chin. Her power, passion and delivery make this poem LIVE.


And of course, I cannot EVER post a poetry anything without putting in What Teacher's Make by Taylor Mali. This is the poem that made me care about poetry for the first time since I was 15.


Like that? Want more amazing slam poetry from people far more brilliant than me? Have my playlist of favorite slam poetry readings, lots of Taylor Mali, Christine O'Keefe Aptowicz, and Beau Sia and many others including people you WILL recognize who weren't as famous then as they are now.

Also? Guess who's going to see Lady Gaga this December? ME! I AM! WHOO! Not the best seats but fuck it, I'm in the building, thats truly all that matters. I don't always know what she's doing thematically but fuck do I appreciate her!

So, my hair is long enough that I can braid it myself. I know that doesnt sound like a big deal but actually, it is. The last time my hair was long enough to braid, my mom had to do it for me because I was too little to be able to. I've never actually had hair this long on my air. I'm kinda in love with it. Also, it's gotten music from Hair stuck in my head.

Does anyone else slash Claude/Berger? No? Just me?

Also no one wants an AU where the MCR boys are the hippies and Frank/Brian/whoever is Claude, fresh off the farm on his way to war(I feel like Brian works best cause the MCR boys are already in NY/NJ and he has to come from Michigan but seriously,anybody) and Gerard is free loving, sexually permissive, drug-tripping Berger? No? Again just me?

*sigh* Oh Hair. I love my own and I love the play.

And now that I'm thinking about it, here, have the Flesh Failures/Let the Sun Shine in from the movie version featuring a young and yummy Treat Williams as Berger and Jon Savage(yeah you read that right) as Claude Bukowski. SPOILERS FOR THE END IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN IT! Seriously, if you EVER plan on seeing the play or the movie and have not yet done so - DO NOT WATCH!

I had a work meeting today and that went well. Hopefully I'll have a little bit of freelance putting money in my pocket on Monday, god knows I need it. And I'm still looking although I shouldn't be surprised I cant find shit considering the state of the economy right now *sigh*

But I went and saw Funny People with [livejournal.com profile] ofangoriousone and her roommate and 2 other people I still dont know because of the seating arrangements. It was by far my facorite Apatow movie since 40 Year Old Virgin, mostly because everything since 40YOV has made me just SO uncomfortable. Superbad, Knocked Up, and Pineapple Express all just left me feeling... I dont know. Maybe its because I expected them to be comedies and they were actually dramadeys and embarrassment-squick ones at that. Knowing the plot of Funny People going in was a warning and I wasn't hoping for something funny. I was hoping for a well done morality story with an edge of humor and as that is what I got? I was very satisfied. That said? OMG PLEASE LET THERE BE FUNNY PEOPLE SLASH THIS YULETIDE! There were like twelve ships. My slash goggles were on so tight I thought my head was gonna pop off.

And then I came home, showered and cleaned my room. That sounds meh but that involved going through 3 bags of clean laundry, emptying two trash cans and literally moving two pieces of furniture. It's all good though because now I can finish my laundry (I let it go for the whole month of October without doing one load - PROCRASTINATION! I CAN HAZ!)and go empty the stuff out of my car and wow, is there a lot of stuff. Big awesome squishy round chair on wheels from my grammy's house. She bought it in 1967 when my mom was 9 and when they moved from Birmingham to Boca Raton, my mom called dibs on the chair. And then when I moved, I took it because I spent all my time in bed cause I had no couch or anything and that's about 75% of my problem with sleep - not having somewhere else to be besides bed. SO ITS MINE NOW! One day, I will get it reupholstered because the fabric is 40 years old and tired but it's still my favorite single non-book/laptop item I own and it's the only thing I'd really be upset over if I had to leave it behind in a burning building. Pictures when I put it back together!

Also on my Sunday list - I need to start that Russian paper. 500 words, no compromises. This fucking thing needs to be DONE damnit. I have it and my holocaust paper which OMG is creeping up me and I dont even know *sighs* I can do 500 words tomorrow. I WILL damnit. I want this done by my prime time TV Thursday so I can spend next week on my Holocaust Paper. I'm doing the Sonderkommando revolt in Auschwitz. It has to be 4-8 pages and you're not allowed internet sources so...that one needs ALL next weekend. *sigh* Stop clinging to books, guys. I mean, yes, valuable, and I have no problem with teachers who are like "You need X number of non-internet sources." Fine. Whatever. But none at all? Does that include JSTOR articles and other periodicals that we access through the off-campus library interface? Seriously, you need to be more specific. *sighs more* Anyway.

List. Of shit to do. I've got one. I think its a good thing right?

Last but not least - yall, keep an eye on [livejournal.com profile] allyndra's lj. She's got a story coming out as soon as it gets back from beta that I chipped in on a tiny bit and omg, she's so good. When it does come out, go, praise her. I bullied her into it and she turned out something surprising and amazing. Promise.

I was (and still am)sick last night so I didnt go to see Away We Go with [livejournal.com profile] mondegreen(Robyn), [livejournal.com profile] ofangoriousone(Teresa), and Teresa's adorable bite-sized new roommate as I was already on rather a lot of vicodin when they showed up. LOL. But because Teresa is the very best on earth, she freaking went and saw it AGAIN with me tonight - 2 days in a row! Why? Because she's that much win. Oh, yeah. I can't deal either.

Ugh, have you guys seen Away We Go - that guy from the Office, the one everyone seems to be in love with and Maya Rudolph and that Brokeback Guy's gorgeous sister ;). And freaking Sam Mendes' direction omg. Seriously. Fucking seriously. It was fucking hilarious and sweet but I cried...a lot. Like, probably four distinct times throughout the film. And then at the end, I flat out cracked and sobbed like a CHILD. I dont know if its having been sick for so long, or stress, or the movie really is that good and really did just hit EVERY BUTTON I HAVE. I dont know. But fuck man. It was powerful as hell. I have a tiny bit of a headache but I feel...better somehow. I love that. It's been a long time since a movie hit me that deep.

In more fun news - OMG you guys - the Ace of Cakes episode with the ANATOMICAL HEART CAKE is tomorrow at 10/9c. If you're in the US, it's gonna be on the Food Network. OMG! *pulls on her hair* The girls are coming over to watch it with me because they're awesome that way.

Then Friday - Hangover and American Psycho at the SLC

AND THEN SATURDAY. People, Zombieland is out Friday. Did you know that? Well, to quote Mr. Biggie Smalls, if you don't know, now you know. It's a zom-rom-com. Seriously. So, me and Teresa, Robyn if we can talk her into it, and possibly my friend Mtt from the London semester are planning on dressing up and, well, you know, going to see the movie as zombies! Why? Because. There is no fun like zombie make up fun. It's appropos of every occasion.

I havent seen it. I've been too sick from the surgery to sit through a movie.

I have a date today(omg so excited, his name is John he's a football player and he makes me smile) to have drinks at 7 just a little bit of chatting to know him, but it's about half a mile from my house(the nearest theater is more than 5 miles away and I cant handle car rides right now - they make me motionsick and jostle me so much my throat hurts)and I'm only going for about half an hour so I am just not well enough sit through a movie in a theater right now.

But - I used to watch TOS with my mom and I read a lot of the original fics that are up on the web for K/S from zines that got spread around in the 70s and 80s. I KNOW I will ship a huge amount of people and I feel like I'm missing all the new post-release fanfiction thats exploding out. So people who saw it and are in the baby-fandom of STIX I have a request

REC ME! REC ME FICS! REC ME AUTHORS! REC ME LJ COMMS! KEEP ME IN THE KNOW!!!

I am counting on you guys to keep me up to date while I heal. I will get to the movie eventually.
