[personal profile] verity on Glee:

I have now seen Glee. My conclusion: this show is LJ drama circa 2004-2007, except a show about a high school. (Kurt is clearly on another show.) I live-tweeted yesterday's episode, concluding that Sue is the mod for whatever the childfree anon comm is, Jesse St. James is [livejournal.com profile] jameth, and Kurt is clearly the gofugyourself LJ feed. Because he is too good for this shit.


I tell you this because it is SO TRUE.
jmtorres: (organizing)
Lists are almost as good as doing things. Because lists help me figure out what to do.

house
--cooking food. I've decided the cooking of food, esp for immediate/next day eating, counts as doing things around the house. Relatedly, the dishes
--taking books back to main library (since this will also clean up the back room a lot)
--laundry
--building the CD shelves
--taking trash and/or recycling out
--mopping/vacuuming
--mending clothes

stab the cat
--go to bank and set up checking account
--go to camera place to look at potential equipment
--budget spreadsheet
--clothes sorting for costume budget
--lyric writing and storyboarding
--pulling the particle accelerator .wavs for sampling
--location scouting
--building the landsail

writing
--I don't know what to put here other than writing. It just needs to get done. I mean, I could list stories, but that doesn't seem useful
--although I was considering writing up things about my yuletide fandoms now as I reread them. btw this year: all out of print books. And possibly Girl Genius as the safety

vidding
--get lyrics and music to n and d for glee vid
--video n and d singing glee vid for lip sync reference
--get clean copies of Enterprise blooper reels for T'Pol adorbs
--...possibly reacquire Enterprise vidding copies. damn it
--force self to rewatch Adam Worth episodes
--finish cleaning the TV ads out of the s1 Sanctuary clips
--and also I just have to sit down and vid

homework
--NOTHING RIGHT NOW
--although possibly I should talk to my advisor. DNW.

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. With the variant from torch: Upon request, I will quote a random line from any of these files.

Roughly in order of most recently touched to hasn't been touched since 2003 with a small amount of by fandom (my WIP folder is actually sorted by fandom, so you know, the ones that only list one fandom and say 'crossover' are not meaningless in context. But also when I sorted by my recent date it was imperfect because I've had overlapping/longterm fandoms).

jmtorres: From Lady Gaga's Bad Romance music video; the peach-haired, wide-eyed iteration (Default)
I want to make a Girl Genius vid to "Banditos," but downloading all the pages is going to take seriously forever oh my god. But it'll be hilarious? Mistaken and misrepresented identities! Idiots EVERYWHERE why won't they get out of the way.

I want to make a Nanny vid to "A Simple Desultory Philippic," and I will be the only person who ever thinks that's funny, amirite? Also I kind of want to filk/replace part of it, and I don't think I can do just part of it and carry it, and um. Life is hard, yo.

Glee is coming back! When the hell is that? I've been told but I didn't process. [personal profile] traykor and I are making an awesome Glee vid and I should get some stuff on the timeline, ever.

I wanted to make someone a festivids treat based on their dear festividder letter, but I didn't get to due to a combination of factors (the holidays became extra crazysauce family time there, I enrolled in winter session class, I got an extension on my primary assignment and spent several days I would have spent on the treat making my main vid really shine) and now I don't know what to do about that. Do I a) admit that I may never get to that vid without a deadline hanging over my head, b) try to make it anyway in my copious free time, c) stop being coy and say what it is since I'm not making it for an anonymous gift exchange anymore?

White Collar convinced me I should keep working on that vid, I mean it's half done and the show handed me more footage.

And if I make the White Collar vid, I should make the Tru Calling vid to "Madeliene," and let's face it, Tru Calling is terrible brain rot [personal profile] niqaeli will probably watch with me, unlike Nanny.

I am occasionally getting twinges on the stack of Supernatural vids I had wanted to make but I so am not in the fandom anymore so um. We'll see if that ever changes I guess?

Hey, can anyone hook me up with some French rap? It's, it's for Glee fic. *headdesk*
jmtorres: (uncertainty)
I should have expected Glee fandom would deal with Emma's OCD with all the sensitivity of a piano to the head. I... don't even... I think my key complaint here is that... no, I can't even.

hahaha.

I just found zombiepocalypse glee fic. I will be kind of disappointed if it doesn't turn out the most important problem is that Glee Club will be over.

ETA: Thanks to a line on this week's episode, I now, as part of my research (oh god wtf this fic), have to figure out if some artists are Jewish. Yay, the lead of Cobra Starship is! How is this my life.

The "you went to bed early? that's a punishable offense" edition.

I think I am doing better. I got up early, went to class, though I didn't make anything up, and I wrote--I can't get any of the Glee crap out of my head, which is too bad as I am starting to annoy my nearest and dearest retelling them bits, but I wrote down some of Amita in space (on a hunch; the empty page was staring at me and wouldn't take ink for the stories of in-many-ways-normative white dudes, so I started writing Amita and got like, four pages down and only stopped for time). It's been a while since I wrote, this is good. Also I made a cheesecake and used up four of our multitude of apples (two more for the topping when I get around to it).

And that was my day. I am back to putting "going to class" in my list of accomplishments, which sucks, but I hadn't been doing it and I did it, which is good.

And: quiz due by 2:30 on Friday. Very doable.

oh glee

So I caught up on the last couple of episodes of Glee I hadn't seen, and they bumped my "what the fuck was that" meter even higher. Like, I don't even, the moronic, it burns, but even the dumb ones are capable of being manipulative and conniving? And there are no smart ones. The entire world of Glee is divided into the dumb and the mean, because the mean at least have wit.

Anyway I'm writing fic that will be AU in 36 hours and applies the handwave that makes Schuester less of a moron but really writing is sort of an exaggeration. I've written eight words of outline and a partial set list (Lennon, Bad Religion, Avenue Q, Bowie, MCR).

By the way, niq, if there is ever an MCR episode I really want someone to sing Teenagers. It might be most hilarious from Sue.

Dear fandom

I got bit by a Glee plotbunny.

I am trying to decide whether to do ANY research for realism or if that would be completely superfluous.

It appears to be three in the morning and I just read an extremely long Kurt/Puck story (and it was not nearly as horrifying as I was expecting).

Sleep? What's that?
jmtorres: From the west side story movie: Womb to Tomb. (musical)
So "Title of the Song" has long been on my list of "I would totally vid that if I could figure out how."

I just vid bunnied Glee. As a marriage of the musical numbers and the ridiculous soap opera drama.

TITLE OF THE SONG, NAIVE EXPRESSION OF LOVE, RELUCTANCE TO ACCEPT THAT YOU ARE GONE, REQUEST TO TURN BACK TIME AND RECTIFY MY WRONG, REPETITION OF THE TITLE OF THE SONG.

Clearly an ensemble piece.

Traykor?
