Stargate Atlantis casting spoiler for season five. )

Because I put the 'laze' in "lazy," I'm going to edit and recycle comments I posted in other journals regarding the latest Atlantis episode...what was the name again? Ah yes. Travelers. Cutting so those who don't wish to be splashed with my bile can sail right on by. ;-)

Bile this way... )

It feels like years since I've posted, though in LJ terms, a month is a year. Kinda like dog years, a little. But completely different.

Watching Stargate: Atlantis at the moment, enjoying, as ever, Ronon's tall, golden gorgeousness. Honestly, is there a reason for one man to be that beautiful? Somewhere in the world, some gnarly, ugly little dude is bawling his eyes out.

Workwise, I continue to help out with the "temporary" assignment I received SIX MONTHS AGO. I'm kicking ass, and it's a major piss that when annual assessment time rolls around, my contribution will be forgotten. Well, not forgotten so much as mentioned and then glossed over. "Thanks for helping out! Now let's promote someone else who did half as much work." Bastards.

I've been getting in touch with my slash roots while I've been away, through numerous viewings of Star Trek! The original series, mind you, not one of those watered down offshoots! Star Trek! I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed it's cheesy goodness. Slash may have been born with Kirk and Spock, but even with my extra-strength slash goggles glued firmly to my head, I just don't see it. What I do see is Spock/Uhura. Eeeee! I can so see the two of them together. I recorded an episode last night, "Assignment: Earth" in which Spock and Kirk beam down to Earth 1968, both of them wearing suits. I'm here to testify that you haven't seen sexy until you've seen Mr. Spock in a suit. Almost inconceivable hotness, people. There's a particular bit where, back on the Enterprise but still in Earth garb, Spock and Kirk are talking to someone in the transporter room. I rewound repeatedly to ogle Spock in that suit, looking tall, cool and refined. Oh my goodness, so sexy.

I enjoyed the Doctor Who finale, though I could have done without that kiss. Christopher Eccleston is gone! Waaaaaaaah! Happily, the new Doctor seems intriguing enough for me to give him a chance when the new season rolls around. Speaking of Doctor Who, I was pleased when he and Captain Jack shared that sweet goodbye kiss, and not a huge deal was made of it. No jokes, no twitching, no funny faces when it was over. I can only imagine how American TV would have handled the situation. Yay! Doctor Who!

In news that saddens no one but me, my iPod is dying, and the warranty expired like, a year ago. Bastard. Went to Radio Shack to buy a new one and they only had one in the store, a Nano. HAH! I laugh in the Nano's face! I need the big one, baby, with more storage room than I'll ever need. Sadly, I want white and there isn't a single one in their district. I'll be ordering online, it seems. This tragic lack of music in my life leads directly to...JC!

Two JC bits have caught me by surprise in the last few weeks.

PEOPLE also names eight Bachelors 'Sexy & Sizzling' -- including former 'N Syncer JC Chasez. Album promo, or do the editors truly believe he's sexy and sizzling? JC! Sexy and sizzling, indeed.

This one made me shake my head. Former 'N SYNC star JC CHASEZ used the pain of his breakup from DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star EVA LONGORIA to inspire the ballads on his latest album. No, JC, nooooooooooooooooo! It's cheap and cheesy, don't do it! This blurb notes his People Magazine Sexy and Single mention, above. Oh, JC.

And on that note, it's time to call Dad.

I have absolutely nothing to say, but I haven't posted in a couple of days, so here we are.

Watched Saved! last night, the Jesus high school movie with Mandy Moore and McCauley Culkin. Hilarious! It was a lot more entertaining than I thought it would be. How disturbing is it that that kind of closed environment reminded me of something, but I'm not sure what? Yeah, I'm making *no* sense.

Finally watched the Stargate SG-1 ep I DVR'd on Friday, "Stronghold." I continue to love Mitchell (thanks to Ben Browder's fine acting), but I'm not sure what the writers are thinking. How about less angsting over people I don't know and more bonding with the team? Yes? Yes. Watched last week's Battlestar and OMG, I love that show. Great story lines, great writing. That show deserves every good word I've seen in print, and then some.

Oh! Speaking of SGA, I'm gonna fic pimp. Seeing how once again I'm all about the less popular pairing, John Sheppard/Ronon Dex stories don't happen along that often. Yay! You can imagine my pleasure at finding a small stash of them by Bone. Yes, I continued to be dazzled by the gorgeousness that is Jason Momoa. I'm only human folks, and he is insanely beautiful. *cough* Yes.

On the writing front, yay! I'm kicking a couple of things nearer to completion, even though I'm still thinking about my JuC offerings for JuC Day. A couple of days ago (yesterday?) someone asked how to get through writer's block. I didn't think that I had any advice but now I realize that what I usually do is just start writing anyway. It could be something completely unrelated, or something that sounds stupid, or...whatever. The trick is to set your fingers and brain in motion, to get them doing *something* instead of nothing.

I tried to participate in some kind of meme where you only answer comments using your icons but because I am lame, I screwed up twice. I now understand how it works, but feh. Too embarrassed to play. BWAHAHA, but not too embarrassed to share my shame with my flist! I kill me.

Working on fic today, the one that's all framed in and is ready for editing, tweaking and revision. It's Harry Potter, my first. I have a couple of other HP ones that are near completion and one of these days I'll post them. I can't even tell you how old these are, but I *can* tell you that book six jossed at least one detail or other in nearly all of them. Bastage book. ;-)

Also working on a JuC, which, holy crap, I need to concentrate on if it's going to be ready for JuC day. And...another holy crap, because I just realized that not only is it Joey's birthday (happy birthday, Gorgeous Lips!), but it's my pop!fandom birthday as well. Jeebus, has it really been five years? My God. Seems like just yesterday I was zipping along the internet reading every article I could get my hands on, saving every picture I could find. JC is my alpha and omega, but I do love the five of them. It's like your hand, baby.

Also working on a Stargate SG-1 thingy. Scotty's laughing (or snorting) because I said at least twice that I probably wouldn't ever write SG-1 fic. Wellllllllllllllll, I'll probably never write Daniel/Jack, which I've read a ton of and love, but there are only about five Daniel/Cameron stories out there and that's just criminal. They've got chemistry! Their love needs to be documented! Seems I'm just the shmoe to do it. Probably won't do any offworld stuff, as I'm not much of a world-builder. Hmmm.

Another series that I'm *sure* I'll never write is Atlantis, and I'm sure about this because I haven't watched the show enough to get a feeling for the characters and how they interact, other than I find myself going ohmygodrononhothothot! when Jason Momoa is onscreen. He's just every variety of yummy there is.

If I *did* write Atlantis fic it would be Ronon/Sheppard, because I'm the only person in the known world, apparently, who 1) doesn't see the Sheppard/McKay hotness and, 2) doesn't see the McKay attraction at all, and I'm not talking about his looks. He rubs me all kinds of the wrong way, and oyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, I can only watch so much of him in one sitting. It's probably just a coincidence that the only eps I've ever seen were pretty light on the McKay action. ;-p Oddly enough, I read a Daniel/Rodney fic this afternoon that I really liked, Two Galaxies, by [ profile] mirabile_dictu.

Speaking of Atlantis and SG-1, all you Atlantis people have my profound condolences for the upcoming season when Col. Samantha Carter and her big brain crash land on your show. Very deep condolences. I'll stop now.

More writing!

So glad I decided to check in on SG-1 last night as I was apparently on crack and it *was* the beginning of the second half of the season after all. Woohoo!

Putting my thoughts behind an LJ cut since at least one person on my friends list is spoiler-allergic to anything after the first season. If you haven't seen the later seasons, don't click the link because...well. Don't. Or do, but don't blame me if you're seriously spoiled after reading.

SciFi Friday thoughts and opinions of Fox X. Monkey.

Stargate SG-1 ramblings. )

Atlantis! I was talking to Dad during most of this so I missed what were probably important plot points. Still, I got to ogle the pretty (Ronon!) for a while. Ronon, Sheppard and Teyla are my favorites (love Teyla!). I can't stand Rodney McKay, so the fact that he wasn't much in last night's show made me happy. I did enjoy the babbling but mostly, I'm happiest when he isn't onscreen being annoying. Dr. Weir! Aiiii, this woman makes Dr. Lam look manic. I don't even think that 'wooden' accurately expresses it. As someone in LJland noted, though, seeing the original Dr. Weir on SG-1 gave them a whole new appreciation for Atlantis!Weir, and I agree - and that's probably why the original didn't reprise the role. Yikes!

Battlestar! WOW, this show has finally snagged me. I've seen bits and pieces and the odd ep here and there, but for some reason I just never connected enough to watch on a weekly basis. Ha! That's changed, because I'm going to be right there waiting for it next week.

Unlike the other Friday shows, I like all of the actors on this show. No one really bugs me, though I can take or leave Starbuck and Apollo. Eh. I love, love, love Mary McDonnell, and Edward James Olmos and Grace Park are my two remaining favorites. There's strong writing and great acting on this show, so again, I'm not sure why I just never really got hooked. I'm looking forward to next week's episode.

And on that note, eeeeeep! Time to call Dad!
