After days of rumblings, the CW is said to have settled on launching the hot new drama "Vampire Diaries" Thursday 8 p.m., paired with "Supernatural." "Vampire Diaries" would replace the staple in the time slot, departing veteran "Smallville," whose final ninth season would air on Friday, probably at 8 p.m.

Okay.

*breathes*

*goes in alphabetic order for the SPN people*

His Prettiness, Jensen, Misha and Jared ON THE SAME DAY which means ON THE SAME MORNING FOR ME but ANYWAY. *brain short circuits* I don't even know how am I surviving an entire season like this, especially because if they put it in this place they obviously think it'll do well.

Oh, Christ. *goes to have a cold shower* And I mean. I even have to CHOOSE which one to watch first. (I'll probably leave the least angst one for last, but this when I'll actually see the things.)

Be right back, flailing.

Also, the day after I see that pilot, I'm writing His Prettiness' character/Dean. Totally. And if there isn't a lot of crossover after this thing starts airing I shall be very disappointed.

Now I'll see if I can write or if my head just decides it doesn't want to work tonight.

ETA: OMG [livejournal.com profile] lasamy FOUND STILLS. (From the Vampire Diaries, duh.) *dies all over again* Okay, just one because there are actually two but the second won't upload.

OMG *DIES* )

Clearly the FSM decided today wasn't the day I could be productive.

Okay, as some people around here might remember, I've been plotting an AU WWII Lost epic since... like, last April. I actually have bits and pieces written but nothing longer than 4000 words or so and I'm not even at the beginning of the beginning. And I was actually doing research for something else and what do I find?

There was a ship named USS Boone County used in WWII!!

Apart from the fact that I didn't know that there were at least twelve Boone counties in the USA, the fun thing is that apart from the ship going in a place in New Jersey first thing, the itinerary it did in WWII is exactly and I mean exactly the itinerary I had pictured for my American contingent (explaining: Des, Sayid, Charlie and someone else were supposed to be in El Alamein with the British army and then when going to Sicily they'd have merged with an American contingent with Jack, Michael and the rest which weren't with the Brits). And then not only it went to Sicily but it also went to Salerno which is actually where my dad's family lives. Then it went to France and I hadn't planned on sending them that far (I still didn't know what I was going to do after a certain point) but still, I'm still completely doubling in laughter over this. Oh God. Maybe it's a sign of destiny urging me to actually get back on writing the damn thing and putting all my newly acquired Rommel knowledge to use even if I need to finish more urgent things first but... oh my. I'm probably too amused for my own good.

(Also, the other fun thing is that Boone was supposed to be with the Red Cross so I don't think I could have him traveling on that ship but still.)

ETA: not to mention, what about a kid named Boone Sawyer from Tennessee who wants to be like Elvis Presley? This is the amusing afternoon.

No, I'm not quoting High Fidelity because I've re-read it. ;) anyway, random post as usual.

1. Well, it's just that a record store near here which wasn't exactly the place where you find stuff but which brought you anything if you ordered it (and seriously, they got me some stuff from South Korea or something once) and whose owner was a really nice guy and where I kind of spent one year and a half because of said ordering records business is closing down. I found out this morning and it kind of made me want to headdesk because practically every place I go for used/rare records is closing/has closed in the last two years. Sucks. Now I don't even know if I want to go there on Monday or something because he's selling everything on sale. I hate sales at record shops when they close. *sigh*

2. To cheer me up, meme from [livejournal.com profile] wandersfound. Since I said I was game.. ;)

The first six people to everyone that responds to this post will get something made by me. It will be about or tailored to those six who respond first who responded. (don't mind this, I probably could do more than six. Just go ahead if you wish.)

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a mix tape. It may be fic, or a poem. I may draw or paint something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange (you really should be worried at this point).


The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you! -> just if you want. ;)

3. I think my Jack/Sawyer muse decided to work again. Well, I have an idea on how to ditch the plot part of that series I'm stuck on and just go another route. I'll see soon-ish.

4. Goodwin is on the most popular Italian crosswords magazine! Premise: there's this weekly magazine called something like Puzzles Week even if I don't exactly like the translation which is full of rebuses, crosswords, blank crosswords and stuff like that and on the cover they have an easy crossword and a celebrity's picture which changes every week. They had Matthew Fox, Josh Holloway and Evangeline Lilly before, but this week there was the guy playing Goodwin! Or Riggins senior, how you prefer. Which is kind of hilarious because seriously, doing a crossword while staring at the guy's face? Weird. And I'd like to know how can they think someone would recognize him since Lost's ratings have to be pretty low since no one I know watches it and they air it in the summer and Friday Night Lights is barely on cable.

5. Lost in three days! Seriously, I can't believe it's over. The hiatus was so long that now that it's almost there I can't quite get it. And re Lost, the fic battle at [livejournal.com profile] lostsquee is being seriously awesome. And tonight I'm definitely coming up with the way to write tentacle sex. -nods-

6. So Bruce Springsteen's new record leaked and I listened to it already. The song-by-song review is coming as soon as I can do it also for John Frusciante's new one. And uhm, guess all for now.

Clearly the fact that while we're in November and there's come cold virus around coupled with the weather being pretty much as warm as it's in May and me going to marches three times last week with heavier clothes than necessary resulted in a hell of a cold and some light flu *headdesk*. While it's light it still feels pretty much like crap and I'll probably skip university tomorrow, which won't be good. *sigh*

Anyway, that said, I figured I could go and do some research since I already did my thousand new words. So I'm researching for some web page comparing prices during the Great Depression to prices today (though I won't ever find what I'm searching for I guess) and I end up in a site called 'Great Depression Recipes'. Where there's stuff such as the Poor Man's Casserole, LIMA BEANS EN CASSEROLE *coughs*, a page called Recipes My Mother made during the Depression, the Poor Man's Bread, the Depression Cake and the Depression Salad. I'm still wondering whether I should bookmark it because it might turn out useful after all or if I should find the whole thing at least a bit hilarious. Also, I found the song for Desmond. In theory, because I only have the lyrics.

Mh, okay, I'm back on the prices and maybe on my history of the United States Compendium. And if tonight I manage I'll probably re-read some Steinbeck. Can't go wrong with that.

Oh, also? Pictures of Bruce Springsteen at Obama's rally yesterday. God. God. Those are such beautiful pictures. I love that man. *sigh* and [livejournal.com profile] elise_509, your political mix is made of winning material ;)

Thing is, for my class of Moral Philosophy (for which I have to take two exams) I have to make a sort of small thesis giving the second exam. Which isn't anything too crazy since I only have to find an article in English, summarize it and do a relation about it. Now, I could do it either about Hobbes, Locke or Hume. Goes unsaid that I picked Hume (and not for entirely shallow reasons, he's my favorite of the three anyways) and don't ask me why but I ended up deciding to do it about an essay he did where he talked about women's condition. Problem is, I have to bring three or four articles to choose from and on the net I could find only one. Result: I spent five hours in the library this morning going through an index of all the English philosophical publications in various philosophy magazines from 1971 until 2002 searching for articles about Hume and women and feminism and stuff. What's the funny thing about that?

At one point I was more or less around 1988 and I find an article in the index. Titled Time Travel and Panormal. Then after staring at it for five minutes, I go to the end where there was a recap of what the article was about and I find out that it said that for Hume time travel was pure nonsense. But it was written in response to someone that said the contrary, aka that Hume said that time travel could happen.

Now, the point isn't that the guy who wrote the response was right because the real Hume would have said that it was pure idiocy. The point is that it was damn hilarious. If only it wasn't an effort of epic proportions to get the librarian to fish out those two magazines I'd totally get a kick out of reading that stuff. I mean, Hume and time travel.

And now I'm back there to actually discuss the feminism/women stuff, hoping he's alright with it. Also because after finding four articles on the matter from 1971 to 2002 I'm not too eager to start again.
