FRIENDS ONLY (mostly)


My journal is about 75% friends only. If you wish to friend me, just comment, and let me know how you found my journal! I'm always happy to make new friends (within limits), so I'll probably add you back. There are some minor exceptions to who I will and will not add, though.

The Noble Dead Series

As I've been reading this series, I've been thinking about what actors should play each character, and I rarely do that. Honestly, I haven't been able to think of many perfect actors for each of the characters, but I do have a few picked out. For instance, Magiere would most definitely have to be played by Claudia Black. No one else could do it. I also picture Naomi Watts, a la Jet Girl as Wynn. Of course, she's a bit too old now...

Try as I might, I haven't been able to think of great actors for each of the other characters.

Also, this would likely have to be a movie series, or a tv miniseries, as opposed to a single movie. But hey, that would be cool. :D

Intro

Okay, so here goes my first post on DreamWidth. I've been on Livejournal since 2004, and have been subscribing to LJ for several years. I do not intend to abandon LJ, but I have noticed that a lot of people have been setting up back-up accounts on DW in case something happens to LJ, and I have decided to do the same. It seems that this will be a huge task, since I have hundreds of entries on LJ, but it's probably necessary.

Here's a link to my LJ -- the real journal, for now.

Writer's Block: No reservations required

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Why does it have to be a current TV show? There aren't really any current shows I like. If I were to pick a character from Friends, it would be Phoebe, since she is apparently the only character who can make it dinner on time (aside from Joey, who would never miss a meal -- but I'm not sure I like his table manners).

Writer's Block: You're my best friend

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Wow, this concept really freaks me out. It's like a little kid who picks up a bug and puts it in a jar and carries it around, but doesn't think about the fact that they're killing the bug by not feeding it and not giving it air. Putting an animal in your pocket and carrying it around is basically the same concept.

Seriously, what a demented question.

Writer's Block: Over the top

[Error: unknown template qotd]

This is a difficult one. First, I have to admit that the person I pick can actually be considered a musician, so Kanye West is out, as he's really just a celebrity (due to his crazy antics) who claims to make music. (This also removes Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Hillary Duff from the running).

So, who is someone who is very popular but doesn't necessarily deserve to be as popular as they are? I guess my first instinct would be to say Green Day or Radio Head. I don't really have a problem with either of those bands, but they do seem to get a lot more hype than seems necessary -- their music isn't extremely original, after all.

It also seems that almost all of the American Idol winners get a lot more record sales than they really deserve. The only one who seems to be worth anything is Kelly Clarkson, who fought the record company to have more creative rights to her third and subsequent albums.

So I guess my answer is: Green Day, Radio Head, and all American Idol winners (with the exception of Kelly Clarkson). (Also note that I say WINNERS, not finalists. Almost all of the AI finalists that have actually done something worth a damn have been runners up)

::EDIT::
I looked at answers that other people gave, and I saw a lot of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga votes (as is to be expected), but I also saw a lot of votes for Michael Jackson and Bob Dylan, and I have to agree with both of those.

Writer's Block: Best movie of the year

[Error: unknown template qotd]

That's pretty easy. I'd have to say Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. :D I also liked Tangled -- that's probably a close second. I know I saw a lot of movies this year, but I really can't remember what they all were.

I'm not sure what it would be like... that's a tough question to answer. I do know, however, that if someone made a movie about it, all the inhabitants would likely speak fluent English (whether or not they're human).

Writer's Block: Open book test

[Error: unknown template qotd]

I suspect that people would more likely make judgements about the number of books on AND off my shelf before actually looking at the titles of the books.

My living space has a tendency to look a bit like this:



If people actually did look at the titles, though, they would find an assortment of fantasy novels, Japanese manga, and other forms of obscure fiction mixed with classic literature and non-fiction history books (among other, less prevalent genres). The average person would probably peg me as an English major -- and they would be correct (though if they didn't know that, why are they in my house?).

Top 10 Places You Can't Visit

Check out this website. It lists places in the world that most of us will never be able to visit. Places like Area 51, etc. It's pretty cool... especially since one of the places on the list is in Disney Land... O_o

Bread

I found this somewhere on the internets:

Why Bread is Bad:

1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users.

2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.

3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations.

4. Every piece of bread you eat brings you nearer to death.

5. Bread is associated with all the major diseases of the body. For example, nearly all sick people have eaten bread. The effects are obviously cumulative:

* 99.9% of all people who die from cancer have eaten bread.
* 100% of all soldiers have eaten bread.
* 96.9% of all Communist sympathizers have eaten bread.
* 99.7% of the people involved in air and auto accidents ate bread within 6 months preceding the accident.
* 93.1% of juvenile delinquents came from homes where bread is served frequently.

6. Evidence points to the long-term effects of bread eating: Of all people born before 1839 who later dined on bread, there has been a 100% mortality rate.

7. Bread is made from a substance called "dough." It has been proven that as little as a teaspoon of dough can be used to suffocate a lab rat. The average American eats more bread than that in one day!

8. Primitive tribal societies that have no bread exhibit a low incidence of cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, and osteoporosis.

9. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and being fed only water begged for bread after as little as two days.

10. Bread is often a "gateway" food item, leading the user to "harder" items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter, and even cold cuts.

11. Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey bread-pudding person.

12. Newborn babies can choke on bread.

13. Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than one minute.

14. Most bread eaters are utterly unable to distinguish between significant scientific fact and meaningless statistical babbling.

In light of these frightening statistics, I propose the following bread restrictions:

1. No sale of bread to minors.
2. A nationwide "Just Say No To Toast" campaign, complete celebrity TV spots and bumper stickers.
3. A 300 percent federal tax on all bread to pay for all the societal ills we might associate with bread.
4. No animal or human images, nor any primary colors (which may appeal to children) may be used to promote bread usage.
5. The establishment of "Bread-free" zones around schools.
