Psych: OMG!

I seriously NEED to stop making humongous posts

So I figured I should do a big update post based on what I've tweeted about over the past 2 months, because that's the only way I seem to remember what I've done over long periods of time. Oh, and just because I don't want my last LJ post to be only about Tom Hanks movies on the off chance that I die in the hurricane tomorrow.

Okay... So remind me to never do something like this for a post ever again. It took me wayyyyy too long to write all of this out. XD;

See ya! ;)

Psych: Wall hide

Psych is still the shit

So, Friday night's new episode of Psych was AWESOME. It had so many great scenes, and it had so much shippiness (if you looked hard enough) for a bunch of different ships. But the biggest pimp this episode was definitely Juliet. I think I counted 4 or 5 different ships involving her (the reason why I say 4 or 5 is because I thought there a teeny, tiny bit of Lassiter/Juliet, but I'm not sure). I swear, she's Psych's equivalent of Avatar's Katara. (Katara was one the only girl in the earlier seasons of the show, so practically every guy that appeared on the show was shipped with her.) But yeah, I'll make a proper post for this episode at some point.

Anyways, my brother left this morning to go back to college. And I have no clue when I'll get to see him again because it sounds like he won't be coming home during his spring break this year. And if that's the case, I guess I won't see him until May when his junior year is over.

Things I need to do today:
-finish part 2 of the project for Graphic Design (which is a 30 page magazine)
-attempt to catch up with AC:CF

...and I guess that's it. I thought I had more things to do, but maybe I'm just going crazy.

See ya! ;)

Stuff I saw and got while shopping today

Barnes & Noble had one copy left of the Phoenix Wright book, so I got it. Yay! :D And it's SO FREAKING THICK. I was thinking it was going to be the size of a typical manga book, but when I compared the thickness of it to my other manga, it's 1 1/2 manga books thick. And apparently there's a LOT to read according to the Table of Contents. I'm pretty sure that it's all translated doujinshi, so that's pretty damn cool. An Edgeworth version is coming out in February, so I'll have to keep an eye out for that one as well.

Anyways, at BestBuy I saw DVDs for iCarly, which is awesome. However, it's "Volume 1," so I guess they split the season 1 episodes in half for the DVD releases. I want a full box set dammit! D: Hopefully they'll make one after all of the volumes are out. They did that with Avatar, so maybe they'll do the same for iCarly.

At Target, we got a sweet deal on Cap'n Crunch (no pun intended). 2 big 22 oz. boxes for $5. :D Also, I'm very confused as to why Target is using a bunch of images of Domo-kun for their Halloween things hanging up in the store. Honestly, Domo-kun is supposed to be a polite monster, not a scary one. >_> Target is totally screwing up the way how he was depicted in Japan, and I don't like that at all.

See ya! ;)

Old things

Joined another Psych fanlisting today. Woohoo! :D There haven't been any new ones made in about a year or longer, so when somebody advertised it at one of the Psych communities, I was happy. However, this just reminded me how I'm still waiting for 5 Pokémon and 3 Avatar fanlistings to take me out of the pending members thing. I might end up having to send out some e-mails if I don't get responses by the time that the 2 week grace period is up. Actually, I guess it's getting close to being 2 weeks now as it is. I have to check the timestamps and see when I got the pending e-mails for them.

Anyways, today has been a day full of various nostalgic things. I got bored a few hours ago, so I decided to take a peak at some of the stuff under my bed. I stumbled upon old Pokémon figures (mainly duplicate ones since I keep the others in a drawer), my playskool cassette player/recorder (oh man, I must've been on drugs when I recorded some of the things that I said on that tape), an overdue VHS tape from Blockbuster that archemo lent to me and never took back when I tried to give it back on several occasions, and the CD that archemo and a few of her neighbors/friends made that's filled with hilariously silly things. ♥ Then when I got bored again on the computer, I decided to replay the point and click game called Adventure X. However, they updated the music in it, so it's not all jolly anymore. :( I still remember what it sounded like though, so maybe I should try to teach myself how to play the jingle on a keyboard or something. XD Then later on, Jen mentioned Kablam and Action League Now in one of her posts, so I went on Youtube and looked up Kablam to listen to the theme songs for both of those, and I watched a full episode. And it makes me miss 90's Nickelodeon so much. T_T Watching the "Prometheus and Bob" segment really brought back some memories.

See ya! ;)

Me babbling about fanlistings

I updated my profile if anybody cares. I edited my "About Me" section slightly, but the main update was adding a bunch of fanlistings to the "Check Out..." section. I decided to go off on a Pokémon fanlisting spree when I got bored yesterday, and then I decided to add some Avatar ones as well. I'm still waiting for a few more fanlistings to send the confirmation e-mail, so I'll probably be adding more throughout the day.

Seeing so many awesome fanlistings really makes me want to learn more coding so that I can make my own. I have several subjects that I'd LOVE to make fanlistings for, but all I know is a small handful of very basic HTML that I've picked up over the years from doing various stuff on the Internet. And even if I did learn some more coding, I'd have to get myself a domain to host it on. But I did come across a free host that actually might be a good one (instead of those typical free hosts like Freewebs and Geocities). But even after all that, I'd also have to make some good looking graphics to spruce up the sites. I've been getting better with icons, but when it comes to larger graphics like banners, I tend to suck. Or they just look too plain to me.

But yeah, if I ever managed to overcome all of those things, I'd want to make listings for:

Pokémon - Character: Jun (Damion/Barry/Pearl/whatever his name is)
Pokémon - Character: Kouhei (Conway)
Pokémon - Ship: Hikari/Jun (Dawn/Damion)
Pokémon - Ship: Hikari/Kouhei (Dawn/Conway)
Psych - Character: Buzz McNab
Psych - Character: Karen Vick
Psych - Character: Pineapple (LOL yes, I consider the pineapple to be a character XD)
Psych - Episode: Nine Lives (1x05)
Psych - Ship: Gus/Juliet

Obviously I probably wouldn't do all of these, but these are just ideas that I've been thinking about for awhile (or just thought of now while typing up this list). But if I could only have one for Pokémon and one for Psych, I'd snap up Hikari/Jun and Buzz McNab in a heartbeat. I know that I'd put a lot of time and effort into these (especially for Buzz omgyoudonotevenknow ♥), and I'd definitely have fun with them since I'd probably turn them both into a fanlisting/shrine dedicated to their awesomeness. For the Buzz one, it would be awesome since I recently went on IMDB and looked up other roles that Sage Brocklebank did besides Buzz, and I donwloaded 3 or 4 of them, so I could screencap the scenes he appeared in and post them in a gallery with Psych screencaps of course. And I'd probably post video clips for download as well. So yeah, I have a lot of ideas for what I'd want to do with that particular fanlisting.

See ya! ;)

A busier day than usual

So it's after midnight, and my dad had some ice cream at least a half hour or so ago. And now he's making a mini pizza in the toaster over. WTF? O_o; And he offered me a slice of cheese while I was still eating my ice cream. *facepalm* Apparently bad flavor combinations aren't registering in his brain at the moment.

Anyways, today my mom dragged me to Kohl's with her so that I could drive, and she wanted me to look and see if there were any clothes I wanted since there was a sale thing, or she had a coupon or something. It was very boring for me since I didn't find much, and I'm just not into clothes shopping. Seriously, I still wear a couple shirts that I've had since at least the 5th or 6th grade, so what does that say about how often I look for new clothes? XD; But yeah, we were probably there for at least 2 hours since my mom takes forever in those stores browsing through everything. But afterward I got to go to Toys R Us, so it was all good. :) I even bought an adorable Shinx plushie while I was there. :D

Then things got very busy for me once we got back home. I was working on the updates for WSA since it was Jen's birthday today/yesterday because I yelled at her not to do them. XD But I kept getting sidetracked because of new TV shows. I had Avatar to watch at 8PM, and then Monk at 9PM and Psych at 10PM. I didn't even bother to watch Monk though since I TiVoed it, but I always HAVE to watch Psych when it's broadcasting, so I ditched the WSA work for an hour because of that. ^^; I'll probably do episode rant posts for Avatar and Psych tomorrow/today. Or maybe I'll hold off on the Psych rant for the jumbo fandom post that I STILL haven't written up yet after all this time. T_T But that probably won't get started until I get the season 2 DVDs and rewatch all of the episodes to remember what the hell happened, so maybe the post will be a complete season 2 + 1st half of season 3 jumbo post. Or I can procrastinate the post until the rest of season 3 airs in the winter, but that would be ridiculous. XD

See ya! ;)

P.S. It turns out the pizza was for my brother and not for my dad, so nevermind that little rant at the beginning of this post. XD;

Avatar 3x12 - The Western Air Temple

So LJ decided to be stupid and just not work for an hour or 2. At least it's back now. *sigh*

Anyways, this is the last week of new episodes of Avatar. Then the series will be done for good. :( But I really didn't care for some of the season 3 episodes though, so maybe it's a good thing. Besides, it's apparent that Nick just didn't care about it anymore considering that the U.K. got some season 3 episodes before us at one point (which was totally random and made NO sense at all), and they up and decided, "Hey! Let's air the remaining episodes in one week without any time for anticipation to build up! :D" >_> I heard they also did this sort of thing with the books and the DVDs too, releasing a DVD that some episodes that are airing this week, and releasing the book based on the finale super early. >_<

Honestly, it was bad enough to see Danny Phantom end in the same manner last summer (except that they had 2 WEEKS worth of episodes to rush through), so it hurts me a little to see Avatar get the same treatment. It was a great series, and it deserved so much more than this. The FANS deserved so much more than this. Many have been so devoted to this series all this time (especially some of the cosplayers: one of whom was a girl that shaved her hair to cosplay as Aang! :O), so to me it feels like the way the series is being rushed through was like a bitchslap in the face to the fandom.

Anyways, I guess I'll talk about the new episode that was on today/yesterday.

See ya! ;)

Psych: OMG!

New Fandom!? But I Already Have So Many!

So, archemo told me about how Bryan Fuller created the new show, Pushing Daisies. As a lot of people know (or at least SHOULD know), he created Dead Like Me, which I've been fond of ever since I finally got to watch it for the first time last year. Anyways, I got the 4 episodes that I've missed, and just watched the pilot, which is titled as "Pie-lette." (How CUTE is that! :3) And OMG. It's got Fuller's style written all over it. In the opening scene, even if I didn't know he made the show, I definately would've felt his vibe...and that sentence sounds really weird, so remind me to never say anything like that ever again...

Anyways, I should probably try to cram in another episode tonight before I go back to playing PW3 (which is turning out to be really good, just like the first 2 games). Hopefully I'll get around to making appropriate posts for all of my fandoms soon...because they all need discussing. These include: Avatar, Big Bang Theory, Burn Notice, How I Met Your Mother, Psych, and as I just said, Pushing Daisies and Phoenix Wright. And maybe Pokémon and Ryuusei no Rockman if some big things happen in those by the time I start to make all of these posts.

See ya! ;)

Psych: OMG!

OMGWTF AVATAR!!!

DUDE! I NEED TO GET BACK INTO FANGIRLING THIS SHOW AGAIN!

Seriously, I'm just finding out about all of this awesome news concerning the show now, and it's making my brain explode with joy!

First off: WE FINALLY HAVE A SET DATE FOR THE SEASON 3 PREMIERE OMG! It's going to be Sepetember 21st. Squeeeee~! :D

Second: WE MIGHT GET MORE THAN 3 SEASONS!?! Where did THIS come from!?! I ♥ Nickelodeon so much right now if this really does happen. Here's the link to the interview that mentions this.

Third: Check out this badass animation of Aang...BECAUSE IT KICKS ASS FOR SRS.

Fourth: Yay! A Season 3 Trailer! And w00t to the Maiko shipping scene! *thumbs up*

OK. I'm totally going to have to watch all of my DVDs now to get fully back into the Avatar groove. Good thing I finally bought the two s2 DVDs that I still hadn't bought yet while I was out shopping today. (I hate how Nick has to offer lovely cover art, plus a mini comicbook with each one to tempt collectors like me to buy the single DVDs before the complete box sets come out with extra bonus features.)

See ya! ;)
