Shakespeare, Shakespeare everywhere! I dunno if the prevalence of Shakespeare references around me are just more noticeable since I watched "As You Like It", but I don't think I really noticed any references until I settled on a quote to use in a Shuttle!Verse chapter. Whatever it was, there are now Shakespeare references everywhere and I am loving it. I keep getting all starry-eyed.

Being on a literary kick, let me share with you more of my geeky-ness.

First something from one my lit class notes. (I don't remember what class, how sad).

A Victorian Daily Schedule )


Next lookie what I bought!
Graphic Novels )

Along that same vein, and because I feel like I've bored you too often, have a meme.

Recent conversations have led me to thinking about religious studies. Now don’t worry I’m not about to get all religious on you. I’m talking about classes I took for my English degree. I cheated some in the “taking classes” area. If you were in the honors program some of the classes you took from that department counted as other requirements. This was AMAZING. Nothing quite like being required to take an agricultural class (like the uses for natural gases) and instead being able to take “Thomas Jefferson: The man, the legend” instead. (One of the AG professors was in love with T.J. and as such offered a fantastic class on him. He would give out prizes in class. Wine, cider, books, specialty mugs. But I digress.)

 

Professors can be awesome and they can also be insane )

 

Blah, all this reminiscing has me thinking about other fun classes. Or other class moments. (Because as much a pain in the butt those two classes were with the Evil professor, the man was funny, and as we put on his evaluation “he knows everything about everything.”) I may do further reminiscing in the future. “Vampires as Literature” “The Origin of the Child” (GOD that was an amazing class too! Loved discussing how children became “innocent” in literature.) “American Literature II” (Typee discussions!), My Shakespeare classes (It’s all fruit!- Inside joke I can explain). “Children’s Literature”, “Modern Literature” (Shit class, the professor was also a crazy person. Literally everyone failed and the curve was insane.) I'll probably talk about us categorizing our professors as mythical creature. (We had a mummy, troll, faerie, werewolf, and so on.)

 

I think I’ll also see if I can find any of my old work from my Creative Writing classes.

I feel so good. No really, like I can accomplish something again. I hope this feeling lasts for a long time, especially since I haven't felt this way in forever. I'm also in a weird mood, as such have a crazy video:




I can't tell you how I adore this song. Or how freaking HOT I find it. It kind of scares me. But is also inspires me, cause damn, if Jim did something so ridiculous like this and yet pulled it off but rocking it like that....seriously Bones would combust. Which yeeesssssss....

So I've got Jim and Bones thang on. Lookies!


Goblins and Fire and Dragons! )


or even



Jim and Joanna and Bones! )


*flails*


PS: The video quality is shite, but the sound is good; there is another video where the quality is good, but the sound is super quiet. I'd recommend mixing and matching them if it bugs you.

Hmm so I should really be studying for my last final of the semester (Chemistry) which is tomorrow at 1:30, but I'm not. No really. Instead I'm here (obviously) posting this, listening to Skillet's Monster repeatedly on youtube, drinking a glass of Plum Wine (random capitalization is fun), and reading through all the things I've written, editing and trying to re-grasp story-lines of things I need to update. I feel a little lost doing this, but eh, eh I'll get it done.
RAMBLING )

So, if anyone's still reading this and has any requests for something to be updated expediently, let me know, I have no preference at the mo. Also, kudos to you. (By the way snippets that you'd like to see more of are fair game too.)

I feel like a Monster.
pixelmayhem: (SGA-ZOMG)
You guys....I just handed in my thesis. Next week are our presentations, and then I am no longer officially banned from LJ.

I shouldn't really be posting now, but hell, my presentation is half done and I've been awake for 26 hours and I still have 8 more to go, assuming I don't crash spectacularly on my drive home due to sleep deprivation.

I just took a chemistry test that I mostly dozed through, including a question that asked "What is the emf?" and I wrote "When he plays piano" and then had to erase and remember what I was doing. Needless to say I bombed it spectacularly. And I don't care. My thesis is in, and soon life as I know it can resume.

And just so you know, I haven't forgotten a single story. Or our lovely comm. <3!

Lordy I can't wait until it's the 7th!

First time I saw this I squealed for a good ten minutes I think. I remember reading an article (ages and ages ago) with Michael Caine where he said that he'd asked the executives how they would ever top TDK and they informed him that they had Johnny Depp as the Riddler and Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Penguin. I don't know if it was true or not, but it's delicious to think about.

So those of you who've done fanmixes, or other hosting things of that nature. What sites do you recommend? And if you have the time some pros and cons, if you use more than one site, or know of more than one.

Thanks so much for any help!

Bought The Ratfink a little hanging hammock for his cage, installed it last night. He looked at it, and then at me, with this look of “what the hell is this?” and….he’s been hanging out in it all day. (Bribery works wonders. Peanut butter treats.) Now he thinks it’s awesome.

Oh holy cow it’s Spring Break! Yeah that snuck up on me. Tells you how busy I am, I didn’t even know until my professor said “We’ll since it’s Spring Break, I think I’ll let you go early. See you a week from Monday!” And I was like :OOO

*mild sarcasm* Wooo Spring Break! I get to work full time until school starts back up again. So you’ll see even less of me than you normally do.*/end mild sarcasm*

On the plus side, I will be able to get ahead on my bills again. AND my test score was good! \0/

Questions

Quick question for those on my flist that might know. What rank would Uhura have been around the time she and Jim met at the bar?[Poll #1535491]
pixelmayhem: (IDC-Passed out)
I should be doing my chemistry homework that is due tomorrow morning. See Icon. In fact I plan on passing out 5 minutes from now and waking early to get it done.

Contemplating prompt #5. Have a zillion ideas. And finally we're at a word count I can do easily. I've cut so much out of all my other admissions it's not even funny. I feel like my other admissions have been so crap because they feel cut off. I thought about re-inserting some of it for prompt #4 when I posted it here. I cut out about another 1000 words. I'm too verbose. :C

I need to bash out my ideas for #5 but first I'm trying to remember what fairy tales have been done already for kirk/mccoy.

Of course there's
[info]selinamoonfire 's fabulous Big Bang Beauty and the Beast story A Kind of Magic but what other ones am I forgetting. I think there was a version of The Ice Queen? But I still have it on my to-read/view list and so an unsure if I have that right. I've seen quite a few "Sleeping Beauty" type stories, but was there one that specifically claimed it was the fairy tale version? And What other's have I missed??? Help me out here flist.

If you know any other fairy tale K/Mc stories lets me know what fairy tale it was. There was that Sailor moon story. Any greek/olympic god connections? Anything farther out into mythology? Norse? Meso-american (holy-shit that would be cool...ideas bloom). African mythology? Chinese? Japanese?

Annnnd now I have a million questions I need to ask the mods about what fairy tales are acceptable. Because my personal library...has a 9 foot bookshelf dedicated to children's stories, and fairy tales, and mythology. (specifically regarding mythology....I could have so much fun playing with that.....*DIES*)
pixelmayhem: (Out of my mind-own it)
So It's time once again for another edition of "My Brain is on Crack".

Before we get to that portion of the proceedings I would like to say...REJOICE! I have found my Twister DVD! I can finally continue writing that AU!!! Damn that was driving me crazy.

Second I would like to ask...WHY are there no Kirk/McCoy Lawyer AUs? Seriously how much do I love Lawyer AUs? It's also probably the only thing that I know, without a doubt, that I could never write. *pouts*

Now for my brain on crack...

So I've been re-watching my way through Trigun. (*Drumroll please*) And guess which Character plot bats (HA I've decided to name mine bats. It's only appropriate) have bitten me?

Does anyone on my flist even know what Trigun is? Anyway. Of course Sam and Jim are prefect for Knives and Vash! Spock could be Wolfwood and McCoy is Meryl. Though I'm not sure who Milly would be? I could even plan it out so that it was in 26 chapters just like the number of episodes.

Buuuuuut. There's no way I'm starting THAT anytime soon. I'd rather start that Neverwhere AU I had planned out. And before that I need to finish all these other things on my plate.

So in conclusion. My Brain. It is on crack.

I was planning on responding to comments and posting a story tonight. However, since my brain is trying to melt out of my skull I think I'll skip that and just go to bed. Instead have a mini-Chris Pine picspam. I swear, I'm not ignoring you.

I'll post the story and respond to comments after work tomorrow. Night all.

I NEED to toss around story ideas. NEED. I have 5 things brewing, most of them short and I just want to chat about them and see if the story ideas I have going actually might work. So if anyone is up for some idea beta'ing I'd adore the help! Doesn't have to be right now, I have most of tomorrow free. (As in emailing back and forth, or whatever you're comfortable with). *Makes woobie face*
