And so ends part one of my Westeros overdose. At some point I'll watch the show and then I'll go in overdose for realz. Anyway, this is probably gonna be lengthy. And mostly of the OMGOMGOMG variety.

jon snow, people say you know nothing but I love you anyway. Yes, I couldn't think of a better cut phrase. )

... phew. Well then. I'm done. XD

1. Main point for which I'm doing this entry:



I CAN BARELY EXPRESS MY JOY. JUST - THIS SHIP. It makes me suffer like no other and it's throwing me for emotional rollercoasters but it's always given me such satisfaction. THESE TWO. Them and their profound bond and all the things they'd do for each other and everything Cas did for Dean and and and ;___; I'M IN LOVE WITH MY SHIP RIGHT NOW AND EVERYTHING IS AWESOME AND CANON DOESN'T HURT. Sorry for the gif spam but I feel so validated. XD

2. On less exciting news, top five post is still open for business! What I have for now is awesome but since I won't get to do it until the weekend..

3. I swear I'm going to stop talking about the SPN finale at some point, but I'm this close to make the first sort-of-polemic post in my entire fandom life. I don't like to be polemic but there's one thing that's being said a lot which is making me go like 'PLEASE DON'T'. Meeeh. Also I think there's too much finale-inspired stuff I want to write spoilers for it ) When what I really should do is finish editing the spn_j2_bigbang story and get it betaed even if I have time for that.

4. Finals start in about two weeks or three. I'm absolutely NOT excited for that but at least it's just three. Which would be good. Except that we already started with bureaucracy crap and hell I so had NOT missed that. Italian university, such a failure.

5. Okay, that was all. Yes, not exactly consistent but it was made because of point one mostly. I'll now go writing stuff at the Lost comment fic meme at [livejournal.com profile] lostsquee while I rub my hands happily thinking about point one. Also I decided I'll try giving the weekly fic recs a go - let's see if I actually stick to it.

Okay. If you didn't like this or you aren't interested in blathering squee from a person who's had a western movies/Clint Eastwood kink as huge as the Chrysler building for half of her life, don't bother. That's all there is.

It's Eastwood, Marshal Eastwood. And he's Walker, he's a Texas ranger. )

Aaaand that's part two of the whole thing. It's going to be way longer than one. Hopefully I won't have to split it in two. I have reports for all panels except the Mark/Richard one because I had to get autographs.

Also: I'll be re-posting here a couple of videos that I took (same goes for tomorrow). Which as far as I see are all over tumblr/LJ for caps and stuff. I really don't mind as long as there's at least a link to the youtube account (which in most tumblr gifs you can't find), but if you're on LJ could you please credit to my LJ name? If it wasn't clear, janiedean on twitter/youtube = janie_tangerine aka me. K?

That said, on to the fun!

Opening ceremony, panels: Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Chad Lindberg & Rob Benedict, Sebastian Roché, J2; plus, autograph adventures, Sebastian Roché likes to read, Misha/Jensen/Richard photo ops, something about Jason Manns' concert, two videos. )

... hi world.

Alright, so, I went to JIB, I took pics, I took notes, I hugged Chad Lindberg and I had the time of my life. And as per last year, I'll go and write a report, which will be as detailed as I can. I have reports on all of the panels except one (though the first day will be less detailed because stuff happened and I was too ecstatic to bother with notes), I have pictures which are for once good and I have videos as well (which I'll just link from my youtube). Now, just a couple things I'll say here before going to the fun: at the end of day three I'll post a zip with good pictures from all the panels (or, my selection). Then at the end of each panel I'll have a zip with all the pics I took from said panel and not just picks. Some of them might not be 100% focused, but if I kept them it means that there's something decent in them anyway so don't mind that. You're absolutely welcome to snag and use them wherever you want, though if you use them for graphics or whatever I'd like a credit back. Same goes from panel summaries.

Also: I posted photo ops. I'd really appreciate if they stayed on this post without going anywhere, k? Thanks.

So, uhm, alright! Let's go with day one.

Opening and stuff, panels: Sebastian Roché & Mark Sheppard + Richard Speight jr + Chad Lindberg + some Rob Benedict, and ranting about how Chad Lindberg is amazing and omgomg I GOT HUGS. And cocktail party! )

Okay I'm half-dead and I have the twenty minutes with Misha and 15 other people at 9.30 AM so I'll be brief.

Yesterday I hugged Chad Lindberg three times in two hours. I'd just like to state that I don't know how I survived. Also I have good pictures and I have notes and I'll put everything up on Monday. That said, I HUGGED CHAD LINDBERG THREE TIMES and most of my ops look good and btw Rob Benedict is the most adorable human being ever.

Okay, I just really needed to state that I hugged Chad Lindberg three times. *squee*

Hiiii. First thing, welcome to everyone from the Castiel friending meme! :D I hope you all have a good time. If you need more information about yours truly, it's all in the sticky post at the top. It doesn't say that half of what I do lately is procrastinating over my bachelor degree's dissertation, which is exactly what I'm doing right now, but it'll hopefully be over by the end of December.

Mostly, this is just because this needs to be shared. And posted. And stared at. And stared at some more.



I mean. Uhm. YES. It's making me FEEL FEELINGS.

Also I should be writing this whole Kant thing instead of staring at THAT. /is incoherent/ okay, maybe I should stop with this procrastination thing. Maybe.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN! + other stuff

janie_tangerine: (bruce no surrender #2)
1. Rome Film Festival: mission semi-accomplished. Meaning: both movies were awesome, trying to catch Bruce was not accomplished. But, more in detail:

a) The People vs George Lucas is a blast! Okay, if you're not into Star Wars at all and you aren't interested in sociology/anthropology, then you probably would die of boredom, but it was a pretty interesting documentary and tbh, it was refreshing to hear a bunch of fans saying that the SW prequels suck. (Even if I still maintain that Phantom Menace was the best of the three, even if it was bad.) But it gives you interesting thoughts about business vs artistic integrity in general, about creator vs public issues in how you need to handle something successful and then well, if you're into SW and if you hate Jar Jar Binks it's fun as hell. And Christ, I never even knew that the Star Wars Christmas special existed, but seeing pieces of it on that movie positively made me laugh for the entire five minutes they talked about it.

b) Then, Italian organization: fail. wherein I explain why )

c) Apart from the clusterfuck in B, at least being in the gallery meant having nice places for the movie (because staying in the front with such a big screen = headache) and damn I need to buy that box set now. Because it was gorgeous. Technically and also from the Bruce fanatic POV, but that was a given. And it also had surprise!Patti Smith, which was a lovely bonus. Anyway he came out after it and sat with two journalists and Jon Landau (!!) and the director, and there my camera died for good. I can't even turn it on anymore without the lens hissing. But, I managed to take some crappy pictures and a video, which I guess isn't THAT bad. So, cut.

BRUCE! )

d) This is mostly for the lulz, but anyway. My dad is a cruel person. This morning he's like 'have you read that after the movie he went to have dinner with fifty fans?'. I check the online article. It said fifty 'notable' fans, which I guess means that it was either people who ran a website or the fan club or SOMETHING. And I'm like 'well, since when I'm a notable fan?' and he's like 'oh dear, you really suck.' And I'm like ';_______________; FOREVER.' Why did he even have to tell me? I could have used some dinner by then anyway, since I was starving..

2. Anyway, that was it for Bruce. Other important thing: SIGN-UPS FOR LOST HOHOHO ARE OPEN at [livejournal.com profile] lostsquee!! Go go go sign up! I can't do it because I a) don't have time and b) I need to match people and I don't want to end up assigning myself someone because it could be partial but GO! It's just 1000 words and the more people sign the least headaches I'll get when I need to do the matches. Sounds good? Then do it! ;)

3. I still need to do my mini_nano amount for today. I'll do it after I'm done with this entry. Also because yesterday I did 1100 words when I should have done 400 so yay!

4. Whoever decided to turn on the heat in mid-November is a criminal, btw. It's freezing regardless of how many layers you wear. And it's colder inside than outside. /rant

5. For anyone who read in my previous SPN review one reason why Dean is Beatrix from Kill Bill, I did a follow-up. Castiel is featured in this one, too.

I feel like this is stuff which would be more suited for tumblr but whatevs I don't have one )

6. And since this post got way too long because of pictures, I'll cut it here and go writing. Or studying. Or something. Ff after yesterday, today was such a drag.

is this even a real post? APPARENTLY IT IS.

  • Oct. 31st, 2010 at 10:07 PM
janie_tangerine: (a fish named wanda)
Eee, this is a real post! I'm almost shocked myself.

1. Okay, I'm almost shocked myself, but this last week has been... the busiest since September or so? In order, I: did the extra exam, covered shifts for other people at the library, lost hours in order to hand over the last paper that was lacking from all the graduation forms, lost a bunch of time searching bibliographies for stuff to use in my thesis (which ended up being mostly useless), talked with my supervisor and I still need to start writing said thesis. At least it's just forty pages. *sigh* Moral of the story: I spent the weekend sleeping, mostly, and the only thing I managed to do was post a fic I had a deadline for. *sigh* So if I owe any comments or e-mails I'll see to do it all tonight/tomorrow morning since I have it free.

2. Also happy Halloween to anyone doing it? (I don't, but it's not like anyone I know does it either or like it's a big thing here, so. It sounds... very much like I don't like to have fun, but I just want one evening to catch up. XD)

3. In much better news: Bon Jovi are touring, which is nothing new, BUT THERE'S AN ITALIAN DATE, which is, instead, a miracle. Or at least, they hadn't had one in... ten years. Or so. Which means, I'M ATTENDING A BON JOVI CONCERT. Which probably wouldn't request capslock, but dammit I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR TEN YEARS TO GET ONE not needing to get out of the country.

Clearly it's in a city which is exactly near to the border both with Austria and Slovenia which means I'll need to spend ten hours on a train or two, BUT WHO CARES.

4. In as good news: I had bought a ticket to go see The Promise at the Rome film festival tomorrow. It also was the last ticket. Then Friday they announced that Bruce Springsteen was attending THAT screening.

Meaning: TOMORROW I'M SEEING BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN. And I paid exactly 6.50 euros for it. I've been gleeing non-stop since I heard it. \o/ Also before The Promise I'm seeing in the same hall a movie named The People Vs. George Lucas, which is apparently made of interviews to Star Wars fans who hated the prequels. I'm strangely excited for it, or at least I'm excited because I want to have some fun.

5. I also signed up for [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo, with the intent of using it for both my thesis and the bunch of fics I need to finish. Except that I had forgotten that I'll be out of town for two days and idk how I'm going to report to them. I need to check the rules again.

6. Also since I am done with bureaucracy, I should also catch up on both Hawaii 5-0 and Boardwalk Empire. This last one will kill me, since I haven't seen anything beyond episode two and it's one hour long, but damn I loved it so much, I don't want to wait for the season to be over to catch up.

7. Also I'm attempting to read some goddamn fiction again because I've been reading just school stuff for one month, so expect some book recs post in a week or so. But for now I can totally say that Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake is probably the best thing not written by Kafka which I read this year. I'm still gushing over how good it was. I'll probably rant about it more extensively in the future.

8. My PM becomes worse with every passing day. Except that this time there's a girl named Ruby (okay, it's not her real name, but still) involved in the whole mess and every time I hear 'the Ruby affair' on the TV or on newspapers I have laughing fits instead of feeling depressed. I'm at the point when I think it's actually a good thing. :/

9. Uhm, that's probably everything, Rl-wise. I'll probably post again soon-ish with Bruce pictures if I manage to take some. :D and now I'll be off catching up with things, which I'll do also tomorrow morning. How glad I am that November 1st is national vacation here. Let's see if I can manage to be caught up before the 2nd.

10. ETA: and I'm an idiot, since I started the post wanting to say this and I forgot, but happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] carmexgirl and [livejournal.com profile] thespiansparkle! :DDD I hope you both have awesome days (had, by now), and if either of you wants to prompt me or something I'll see what I can do. :D
