I've been less than pleased with Glee lately (and by lately I mean before the winter hiatus) - mostly because of it's blatant sizeism in regards to Lauren - but I feel that this week's episode made progress toward moving outside of the stereotype.  It definitely still has its issues (Glee has so many issues it will be in therapy for the rest of its life) but I like first steps.  And I like Glee, despite its many, many shortcomings.  Sometimes I can still feel that campy, underdog, "we will overcome" feeling that the pilot gave me, underneath all the spectacle and sport.

Like a boss

I haven't talked about fandom in forever! I realized that while I was dozing and for some reason it wouldn't leave me alone, the things I've been reading/watching the past few months, so!  Here they are:

- Anime/Japanese thing wise .... pretty much zilch.  I've stayed current and hip with the KH fandom and the new KH games, but as I haven't played Birth By Sleep, I haven't really ventured into looking at fic for it.  You would think for someone who organizes anime conventions that I would be more in tune with anime... but not really.  I mean, I'm pretty good at what's hip with the rest of the world, I just don't watch/read it lately.  I fail.

-TV shows.  Now that's a whole new matter entirely.  I banged through three seasons of Skins (will get to the fourth eventually).  Banged through all six seasons of Weeds.  Am on episode 4 of the Walking Dead.  Misfits is my next adventure.  Watched all of Matt Smith's run as the Doctor (I love Matt Smith, I cannot deny).  It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is on my backburner, as it's been demanded by my friends that I watch it.  Will be marathoning all three seasons of Arrested Development on the 12th.  Am current on Glee and How I Met Your Mother.  I did horrible and only saw two episodes of this last season of White Collar, which I need to fix because Matt Bomer is beautiful.

- I watched the Human Centipede. It was not as terrifying as I was anticipating.  Have seen Harry Potter, Paranormal Activity 2, and Tangled lately in the theatre.  Watched Love Actually repeatedly in the past few weeks.  Have watched How to Train Your Dragon repeatedly as well - that movie is my life.

- Musically, it's been all My Chemical Romance and Courtney Marie Andrews lately.  I went to a Margot and the Nuclear So and So's show last month and couldn't get in since it was sold out, so my sister and I camped in the parking lot and listened to from the car.  Despite it being freezing, it was actually pretty awesome. No obnoxious idiots to compete with.  Dear and the Headlights broke up, which has been bumming me out.  I missed a Pierce the Veil show this last Sunday and I'm kicking myself over it.  They'll be back in Tucson in January, so I'm hoping (foolishly) I might get to that show.  But mostly, just MCR and Courtney Marie.  You should listen, girl sounds like an angel.  Don't let the folk/bluegrass label fool you.  Start with Oak Creek.

- Bookwise, I've been pretty tame.  I'm on and off again reading the Locke and Key series - it's a graphic novel series written by Joe Hill, who is Stephen King's son and wrote the only book that's scared me in recent memory, Heart Shaped Box.  I'm still really obsessed with the Hunger Games series, which I guess you could say is my biggest fandom at the moment.  I was mostly re-reading things I've had, though I made a decent effort at The Bell Jar, before abandoning it for my current love, The Passage, by Justin Cronin.  It was widely reviewed and raved about in Time and I had a half off coupon at Borders the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, so I had to grab it.  It's been fun so far, I've still got about 400 pages left.

- I've been writing in This Frenzied State.  It's slow coming, but it feels so good.

Sorry for the double post.  It's 6am and I can't sleep.

So yesterday I went to a con.  \o/  Hung out with [livejournal.com profile] mekkisry all day, which was more than awesome, and had a lot of fun, a lot more fun that I've had in a really, really long time. It was just really laid back, and there were boys kissing and other people who like boys kissing omg, and costumes and just a lot of fun. It was really weird seeing/hearing people talk, IRL, about all these fandom things because absolutely none of my friends are into it.  It was just cool.

I saw this really, really good Sora, and this really cute little Maka ([livejournal.com profile] allycat100104 , I tried to get a picture but I couldn't, but she was sooo cute, omg), a really awesome, cute Aerith, some Full Metal Alchemist kids, tons of Death Note, a lot of Naruto, some Bleach, and a freaking Sonic and... some other person from the Sonic game.  There's was some Hibari who...insisted on taking off his pants, and by the end of the night, had only boxers on.  I really...had no idea why.  I wanted to jump him until he got up from the panel he was on, and then I saw the no pants.  And he was Hibari.  Just...no.  There was a decent jumpsuit!Tsuna and I think a Belphegor, but I'm not sure.  There was definitely a crown, a red shirt, and a vest. Also some sluts, but it was all good.  Did I mention the SUPER ADORABLE SORA?? I pretty much squee'd everytime I saw her.  [livejournal.com profile] mekkisry will testify.  SOOO CUTE.  There were two Roxas's, who, really, kinda sucked, but the girl one was really nice and randomly came over and danced with me at one point, lol, it was cute.  There was actually and Olette and a Fuu too. 

OH AND HAY, [livejournal.com profile] deluziional ?  I got to voice Haruhi for this dubbing thing.  It took soooo long.  But it was really cool and we did the opening scene where you first meet Mikuru and Haruhi grabs her boobs and Kyon's all *faceplam*.  It was really funny.  I really sucked, but the dude was okay and the girl who did Mikuru was freaking awesome.  She could probably, really, do VA if she wanted to.  She was only 14 and sort of pretentious, but was still really, really good at it.  As soon as they showed us the script I was like, OH FUCK NO I KNOW HOW LOUD THAT GIRL SCREAMS, FTS.  Thankfully she took that part without too much hesitation. xD

I got a KH necklace (Oathkeeper!  And they brought out a Heartless symbol necklace a little bit later but I wasn't about to buy another one, fff), a Heartless symbol sticker, and this beanie with plaid cat ears on it.  Cat ears: the lazy man's cosplay. xD  There was a lot of yaoi.  There was this really cute Ritsuka who made out with random dude right in front of us and it was AWESOME.  Then there was a yaoi panel and this fail Reno and some other kid totally had this long, breathy makeout session, it was awesome.  I stayed for this Yaoipalooza panel or whatever, and this bitch who publishes yaoi books or whatever totally showed us porn for an hour.  Corn porn.  THE corn porn. xD

But yea, I'll stop rambling, I may post pictures later, at least of the super fucking adorable Sora.  And maybe the Weighted Companion Cube!  It was awesome!  If I knew the words to the song besides "we do what we must..." I may have started singing.  No, probably not, but it would have been awesome. 

Annnd now I'm off to edit.  Came home at 1 since I had to stop and get milk, then watched my brother fail play RE for two and half hours, and then I made coffee.  This was a bad decision.  I have stuff to read too but I don't feel like..feeling too much atm. Fic up by the end of the night time I go to sleep probably.  Long fic should be updated by Wednesday?  Idek, zombies are eating my brain currently, nom.
