Picked by cotume27Armoured bears named Iorek
Iorek, of His Dark Materials
fame, is a giant, armour-wearing, talking polar bear who was framed for the murder of a fellow bear. What's not to like? And he's just so... honourable. If Iorek was a man I'd totally tap it.Mind crack
AKA Mindporn/brainporn, it's what I live for. Most of this porn occur in fandom, predominantly in RP. It's the kind of drug even poor kids can afford, and the headrush is better than sugar.S.Lebeouf not playing Yorick
This originally was supposed to be "Shia Lebeouf not being cast as Yorick", but LJ only let me have four words, so I had to shorten it. If you're a fan of Y: The Last Man
, you'll probably know that there's a movie coming out. BKV is rumoured to be writing the screenplay, and casting speculation is that Shia Lebeouf is going to play Yorick, a choice that I vehemently oppose. I've never seen him in anything, and I've heard that he's a good actor, but he just doesn't feel
like Yorick to me.Goong
This means "palace" in Korean. It's a KTV drama, also called "Princess Hours", which I was very
into last month. Still am, though not as much as I was. The plot is a little ridiculous, but it's an Asian soapy! What do you expect? The costumes are pretty, the girls are ditzy and the boys are hot. You seriously can't complain about that.Brian K. Vaughan
BKV, AKA God of Comics, creator of such awesome comic series' such as Runaways
, Y: The Last Man
and Ex Machina
. Now a staff writer for Lost
. Wrote the first few issues for Mystique
before it went to crap, and is currently guesting an arc for Buffy
season eight, and what he's got now is so much better than what Joss Whedon was doing to it. I love BKV's quirky characters. His plot may leave some to be desired, but he's an incredible writer when it comes to character/dialogue-driven pieces. My favourite comic writer by far.Explaining X-Men to non-fans
That's really self-explanatory, but the way it came by is a funny story. Ruth and I were attempting to condense about 40 years of X-Men canon so that it could be better explained to someone who had never come across it before, and then we realised how incredibly fucked up X-Men must sound to an outsider, and that we're really all weirdos.Joo Ji Hoon
Actor/Korean hottie. That's him in the icon. He plays the male protagonist in Goong
. Liv and I sometimes call him CK model, 'cause he used to be a model (he's very tall for an Asian). I was wiki-ing him one day, and found out that he used to model for Calvin Klein. And who is CK's most notorious model? Travis Fimmel. For what? Underwear
. And thus the fantasy of Joo Ji-Hoon in nothing but a pair of dacks began. Oh, he's a pretty good actor too, a nice range and depth for someone who used to pose with really bad hairdos.
In other news! I completed both my assignments due tomorrow. I need to take a day off.
