this is what you get for not being a white male!

I have discovered Tiger Beatdown, this blog for ladythings, and HOLY SHIT I think I have a new internet girlfriend, you guys. My internet boyfriend used to be Nate Silver, but he has not made sweet, numeric love to me for several months and no one is sadder about that than me.

Getting back to the pwnage, my favorite bit of the approximately 300 posts that I backread today was the Tucker Max Facebook quiz post about this trailer:



Yeah, I don't even know. Don't watch the trailer if you object to guys talking about killing fat girls because, uh, they are fat.

Fun meme stuff, now, though! For [livejournal.com profile] ishie:

I had to recheck Wikipedia for some of these, but I do love that Gus' occupation is listed as "Pharmaceutical Rep/Private Detective." ♥

FAVORITE GUS NICKNAMES:
5. That time he was Bud from the Cosby show.
4. Tan (I like episodes where Gus gets to be a bit of a douche for a change, because even when he's kinda being a douche he's still not very good at it because &GUS;)
3. Lavender Cooms (it's so appropriate because Gus looks really good in lavender, you know)
2. Magic Head
1. and naturally, Gus T. T. Showbiz

and



5. PIRATES (this is my answer to everything, though)
4. I would have added a reboot version of Number One to hang out with Pike because &NUMBER ONE;, hobviously.
3. The same goes for Nurse Chapel! She and McCoy would talk about the best techniques of sneaking up on people to give then hyposprays and since Spock is dating Uhura and isn't as hot in the rebootverse she would not get so hung up on him this time around and would instead make some soup for McCoy and SHUT UP I read a fic that was like "Secretary...IN SPACE" and now I ship them. /o\
2. I would not have fridged Amanda! Instead I would have killed off Sarek (sorry, Sarek) and had Spock angst about that and be all "DADDY NEVER LOVED ME WHYYY" until Amanda slapped some sense into him. And then at the end of movie Amanda would team up with Spock Prime to convince Spock not to be an idiot and stay on the Enterprise while the two of them worked together to rebuild Vulcan. IT WOULD BE AMAZING.
1. CAPTAIN UHURA! Lol most random example, but the other day I was reading this mirror verse Spock/McCoy fic that dealt with them, Scotty, Uhura, and Chapel teaming up to take down evil!Kirk after evil!Kirk raped an ensign. So Spock killed off evil!Kirk and afterwards was all "I do not desire the captaincy >:|" and Scotty was all "Dude, me neither, I just want to make sweet, sweet love to the Enterprise's engines :/" and since by this time in this fic series they had marooned Sulu on a planet for being a rapey douche, they made Uhura the captain! And I did not understand why these people were supposed to be evil because, uh, wouldn't evil people not give a fuck that Kirk raped a bunch of people? But anyway, I didn't care because the idea of CAPTAIN UHURA makes me happy in my pants and pretty much everywhere else.

Basically if I had rebooted TOS I probably would have not excised all the female characters that weren't Uhura, Winona, and Amanda. :(

ughhh god, that Tucker Max movie looks so fucking awful, I can't even stomach it. it's so so hard for me to be offended by douchebags because most of the time, it's really obvious that they just get kicks out of seeing people get pissed off. but I read the back cover of that book once in an Urban Outfitters (they would sell trash like that) and I basically haven't been that disgusted in a human being since I found out about Hitler. especially the way the bad reviews calling him a pig are quoted on the back like they're a source of great pride. sickening. and then I just get even more pissed because I can picture him shitting himself with joy at my terrible impression as well, which is the opposite of my intention. I hate American culture.

haha sorry to get all ranty. but yeah, that's a pretty great blog! :D

Don't apologize for your rage, it is very understandable! Like, usually I can deal with that typical fratboy douchey type of joke if there's a thin veneer of humor over it (I can deal, at any rate, even if it still makes me ANGRY WITH RAGE), but when you get to movies like this where there is no imagination or humor besides "lol fat girls are not people and strippers aren't people because they show their boobs"...yeah, fuck him with a rusty rake is what I'm saying, really. :/

I read the Tiger Beatdown blog post on how similar the Tucker Max movie and the Hangover trailers are, and it made me ashamed for liking the Hangover. but I kind of thought the Hangover was more making fun of the fratboy douchebaggery in a frighteningly accurate way, whereas the other one was basically condoning it. maybe they're the same thing and I'm just making excuses! I don't know.

but speaking of internet girlfriends, have you ever read 2birds1blog? I'm not really a blog person but I love that girl, and the Tiger Beatdown blog girl's style kind of reminded me of the 2bird1blog girl.

Oh christ whyyyyyyyy did I read that as Spock Prime/Amanda DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD:

YOU DO KNOW THAT'S WHAT "WORKED TOGETHER TO REBUILD VULCAN" MEANS RIGT?

[identity profile] neigedens.livejournal.com 2009-08-11 03:58 pm (UTC)(link)
MY MIND DID GO THERE AND I WAS INTRIGUED. /o\

N, but srsly, they would be an awesome team because Amanda would troll the other Vulcan elders so they would do what she wanted and Spock would be all "Oh, hey, who traveled through a black hole from a 100 years in the future to be here, oh, that's right, ME, I'm probably fucking right" and basically it would be amazing.

:| I would read that fic

Yes, it would. it really would.

Also, thank heaven there are other people on my flist who think Quinto's Spock is nowhere near as sexy as Nimoy's (even when I'm writing rebootverse, I still hear Nimoy, not Quinto).

[identity profile] neigedens.livejournal.com 2009-08-11 04:05 pm (UTC)(link)
I think what it is is that Nimoy is sexy with everything, from Kirk and McCoy and Uhura to Hortas and walls and EVERYTHING, whereas Quinto kind of...isn't, you know?

It's strange, but for some reason I'll almost always picture Amanda in a fic as the TOS version, and I don't know why. I loved Winona!Amanda. Maybe because TOS!Amanda was rocking that beehive all the time or something?

Also, New Sarek is not Mark Lenard and therefore... lacks something. Such as being Mark Lenard.

And yeah: Nimoy has chemistry like woah with everything, where as... well, Quinto wasn't actually bad, he just wasn't Leonard Nimoy.

Ahaha there it is! Please ignore all my comment fail. It's been a rough morning. :\

IT'S COOL, ILU, BB.

2. I would not have fridged Amanda! Instead I would have killed off Sarek (sorry, Sarek) and had Spock angst about that and be all "DADDY NEVER LOVED ME WHYYY" until Amanda slapped some sense into him.

Oh, that would have been cool! And bonus angst because Spock and Sarek hadn't reconciled yet, and Spock Prime would know that. And then Amanda's further adventures with Spock Prime -- awesome! (It also doesn't hurt that I never really warmed up to not-Mark-Lenard!Sarek. He was just ... not Mark Lenard.)

[identity profile] neigedens.livejournal.com 2009-08-11 04:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I feel bad for killing off characters for emotional manipulation, and yet the potential angst here would be awesome.

Mark Lenard was really good! He was pretty convincing as Nimoy's father despite being, you know, like a year older.

Yeah, I love Tiger Beatdown, too. I've got it bookmarked on my computer. She has some great insights into pop culture. I thought her post on Quentin Tarantino really good.

Ooh, I haven't seen that yet. I'll have to read it.
