First off, I have a new layout! And actually a new one, this time, not just a re-imagining or whatever of my old one. NEW NEW NEW.
I still liked my old one and all, but I've been wanting a more spring-y/summer-y layout for a while now, but just hadn't been able to figure out what. This week, though, the universe finally aligned, and voila! YAAAAAAAAAY.

Also, iiiin...two hours?? -- roughly -- [livejournal.com profile] boheme06 will be here in Philly!! That's right, she's visiting 'til tomorrow night, and it is going to be AWESOME, let me tell you. We're going to the Franklin Institute, because they have a Narnia exhibit, and even just looking at the pictures makes me excited beyond belief. But it's also UPenn's Spring Fling this weekend (which, I have friends who go there, so we're in), and also, I mean, PHILLY. So it should be goooooood tiiiiimes!!

Aaaaalso, in my Shakespeare class just now, we got to have class outside (where it is GORGEOUS, omg), and spend the entire time acting out a scene (from Coriolanus! In which I was the title character, thankyouverymuch), which allowed me to get all up in the personal space of a very cute boy (lulz, remember this??). AMAZING.

Basically, this weekend is shaping up to be WIN, ALL AROUND. \o/ !!!!

...or, more specifically, HEY PEOPLE WHO WATCH CRIMINAL MINDS:

LET'S TALK.

Mostly, let's talk about this:


I JUST SCREAMED OUT LOUD, YOU GUYS.
WHEN DOES THIS HAPPEN??? I've only seen two episodes, so far, but that was ENOUGH to fill me with the burning desire for some Hotch/Reid lovins, and then I said, hey, let me just do some random related poking around before I get to bed, and then I found THIS, aaaand nearly flung the entire box of cereal I was holding into the air with glee.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [...the fangirl, she is loose.]

So, just got back from seeing Cobra Starship!!! \o/

HERE ARE SOME THOUGHTS )

Anyway, in addition to being mostly dead (but thrilled!), I smell, SO BADLY. Like, TMI, maybe, sorry, but it's not even ME, mostly, just that everyone there was SO FRICKIN' SWEATY, like that wave of people really was made of water, and they'd all just gone swimming in it. And generally I'd back off of people's sweat and stank, but I was SO DETERMINED to not let those weemos completely own the floor, so I was fighting my way through the B.O. like nobody's business. And so, yes, now I have to go take a shower (my sweat, I don't mind so much!! But the 40-odd people who got THEIR sweat all over me?? Yeah, that I mind). And then do homework, and then sleeeeeeeep, glorious sleeeep (\o/ !!!). WISH ME LUCK ON THIS GLORIOUS ADVENTURE, GUYS.

I CAN HAS

splits_thesky: (dps: i'm still here)
I HAVE A COMPUTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! \o/ *TICKER TAPE PARADE*

It's my brother's old desktop, and it took fucking AAAAAAGES to get working (basically, everything that could go wrong, DID), and transferring even just all my music took foreeeeeeeeverrrrr.

BUT NOW!!! All my surviving stuff is on it, and it has an internet connection, and the speakers work (not very well, but still), and the resolution doesn't make me want to tear my hair out (uhhh, don't ask), and it is here, set up in my room, and AISUHDASIDUHASID I CAN HAS, YOU GUYS, I CAN HAS!!!!!!!!
*sniff* I think this is the happiest day of my life.

I very HIGHLY doubt my brother gave this computer a name, so I am now! And it is Lewis Kingston, after a one Peter Lewis Kingston Wentz III. BECAUSE, see, it's been around for a while, and at one point people decided it was kind of lame (in comparison to my brother's new Macbook, I mean, and so this desktop sat in the basement for YEARS), but it's still chuggin' along, albeit with some issues. SO.

*off to frolic in the land of HAVING YR OWN COMPUTER!*

Oh man, you guys. Half the time when I'm being a loser and living online, refreshing my flist every 5 minutes, no one updates. But as soon as I leave you guys alone, my flist EXPLODES. Srsly, I haven't checked my flist since Monday evening, and, like, everyone updated 500 times. You guys are like the dolls in A Little Princess, I love it. :DDDDD

The reason I was gone was because of a book. )

So, yeah. READ THIS BOOK!!!! I started at midnight last night, and have been reading practically nonstop ever since. A lot of the time I have to force myself to sleep or eat or something, because I just want to read forever.



...Oh, but I also took a break tonight to go see National Treasure: Book of Secrets. All I have to say about THAT is, SDIFUHAIDUKHSAFIUJHDF RILEY POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLEEEEE OMGGGG<33333333333333333333333333333


Sooooo, yeah. TIME FOR MORE READING!!!!! \o/

Okay, I know you guys (especially you non-bandom kids!) are about to punch me out for posting so much, but I have MORE TO SHARE!!
And this is it: The Academy Is... is AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING in concert. Like, we saw them on the Honda Civic Tour, but we were so far away, and getting yelled at by security for most of the time, and then we had to miss a couple songs so we could get in line to meet them (which was AWESOME, and I don't regret it AT ALL, but still), but this was just totally different.
The venue was smaller, for one, but it was just overall, so fucking high energy. Like, you guys, this was the MOST AMAZING CONCERT OF MY LIFE. TAI... are so INTO IT, omg, it made my LIFE.

After almost dying on the floor (and then meeting 4/5 of Cobra Starship - we ran into Alex later, and were awkward and creepy with him, too - EEEEEEE!!!!!), my friend and I just hung out off to the side. It was actually better, because we could see the entire stage, and weren't in danger of, you know, BEING CRUSHED TO DEATH BY 12 YEAR OLDS. But DUDE, it was still the most energetic concert I've ever been to. Like, with Gym Class Heroes, Travie talks a lot, and he's smart and witty, and his comments make the show, and then with Cobra Starship they just want you to fucking dance, and it's so much fun, and with Fall Out Boy you just sort of stare open-mouthed and go, "Oh. My. GODDDDDDDDDD" a lot. But this show was like - like, okay, if the biggest, longest, most insane keyboard smash was an emotion?? It would be how seeing The Academy Is... in concert feels.

William fucking FLINGS himself across the stage, and bounds around and throws mic stands into the air (I kept worrying he'd knock himself out, or something), and the Butcher is INSANE and AMAZING (and totally the MVP of the night, we decided), and pretty much NEVER stopped drumming, and Mike and Sisky and Chiz ROCK OUT and they're all just so INTO IT and they totally give it their all, and - just - SFHKJLASHDUGFHJBKADLAHSIGFEHVSDKMLFJIUHAGYFVHKJLJIFHSGDVHBAJKDS.
I ALMOST CRIED, IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL (no joke!!).

OMG, AND STORY! Okay, so at one point Butcher starts playing the beginnings of "Classifieds" (which is my favorite TAI... song EVER, btw), only apparently the mics weren't working properly or something, so William turns around and fucking WINDMILLS his arms at Butcher to let him know. What made this especially hilarious was that William's arms are SO FUCKING LONG (like Gabe's!!), so it was, like, LIMBS EVERYWHERE.
Anyway, so then Butcher and Mike just played randomly for a bit (while Tony ran around frantically trying to fix things, aww ♥), and then they finally started "Classifieds".
It was AMAZING, of course, AND THEN! Around the second chorus, who should appear on stage but Gabe!! He sang with William for a bit, and I was paying attention to that and trying not to pass out from sheer glee, and then I just vaguely see something totally FLAILING at the side of the stage, near Mike, and I turn, and it's RYLAND!!! omg, you guys, it was AMAZING, he was seriously dancing like there's no tomorrow. SKOIJAUOHGDVBHNKJSDLFHUGABDNKJDSHUYHFBSDJKFH!!!!!! And then I looked around some more, and Alex was totally there too, bouncing around Mike and Ryland. So then the Cobra boys head off stage, and TAI... finish the song, only the mics were futzing out a little, and when they finish, William's like, "...that was unexpected." And then he goes, "Tony! Can we fix this, because Mike wants to sing the next song", and Mike GRINNED HUGELY, and I may or may not have swooned a little.
And THEN they played another song that I forget right now, and William's mike cut out at the end, so he decided to, instead, LAUNCH himself into the crowd and flail around there. And so then the song finishes without him, and Butcher's like, "I was trying to sing the end by myself there...it didn't really work, though". So then everyone runs around frantically trying to fix everything, and William's like, "I don't know what I'm going to do if this keeps happening...we might have to just have a fucking party. *turns to Butcher* And you, I think you should sing lead vocals in the next song!!" SFJAKSDLLOJIASUHGBJSKLDJIAHUSBHDJKSLIOIFHSHKJ, GUYS!!!!!!!!!!

OMG, AND THEN THEY PLAYED "ALMOST HERE" AS THEIR LAST SONG, AND IT WAS SERIOUSLY, LIKE, A FUCKING RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE. OH MY GOD, IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING, AMAZING THING TO EVER AMAZING. AND THAT TOTALLY MAKES SENSE, THAT'S JUST HOW AMAZING IT WAS.

UGH, YOU GUYS, IT WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY LIFE.


...And then we went to this diner, and flipped out some more (and got yelled at for being too loud, hah), and did this with the fries.
And then we got pulled over on the way home. But not even for something cool, just because our lights weren't on enough!! SO.


ETA: OH, I FORGOT TO MENTION. After we met Gabe and Ryland, we were just sort of standing there freaking out, and this lady (looked about 40-something??) was like, "*nods to Ryland* Who's that?" So I told her, right. And then there was this pause, and then she goes, "OMG, AND IS THAT GABE OVER THERE?!?!?!!!!11" I SHIT YOU NOT. It was WONDERFUL, y'all. :DDDDDD

HEY GUYS HEY GUYS

SO I WAS LOOKING THROUGH THE POSTS AT ONTD TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT ORLI'S CAR CRASH (which omg, poor baby, and I hope everyone ends up alright, jeez), AND I SAW THIS AND I'M GOING TO ONE OF THOSE SHOWS AND DJFASGUYASUDITGASIUFUSAGDSAIUFGTASDI EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

OMG YOU GUYS DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO HAVE TO SUPPRESS A SUPER-LOUD, SUPER-GIRLY SCREECH OF JOY BECAUSE YOU'RE IN PUBLIC??? VERY HARD, I'LL TELL YOU THAT.

THINGS THAT ARE AWESOME:

1. My ringtone (for my new cell phone!! YAAAAAY) is now Cobra Starship's "The Ballad of Big Poppa and Diamond Girl", because it is only my favorite Cobra Starship song EVER. And the ringtone for my voicemail is "The Take Over, The Break's Over", because come on, FALL OUT BOY.

2. The VMAs, apparently, although I failed and did not watch them. But still!

3. SPENCER SMITH'S STUPID - EVERYTHING. I mean this in the same vein as "Brendon Urie's stupid FACE" or "UGH JONWALKER STOP BEING SO ADORABLE", fyi. Just, you guys, SPENCER. I have no idea how this happened, either, I was all content to flail over JWalk, and now - just - SPENCER. Spencer and his stupid hair and his stupid smile and his stupid hips and his stupid beard and his stupid red underwear and his stupid drumming that totally motivated me to start teaching myself to play the drums again and his stupid face in my icon that I totally copied and took a picture of to put as a background for my phone. Yeah.

4. This. YOU GUYS, HOW ARE THEY EVEN REAL.

5. I totally had to watch this twice to actually understand what Spencer was saying, because I just kept zoning out and staring at Jon and his dumb vegetables. HOW SO CUTE, JWALK????

6. HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THIS KID, MAN. SGUHAFUAGDJBHKASIDUHGYAFSDGH

7. There is a REASON he's my favorite member of FOB, y'all.

8. GERARD WAY, SHUT UP, STOP BEING SO AWESOME

9. The making of "I'm Not Okay"!! part 1, part 2, part 3. I MEAN, REALLY. <3333333

10. FRANK IERO'S STUPID GIGGLE. I AM SO GONE, YOU GUYS.

11. "IT'S FOR THE HAMSTER THAT I'M GONNA GET!!!" And shenanigans, you guys!! SHENANIGANS.


I love how this just degenerated into a mess of keyboard smashing and glee. But, I MEAN. HOW SO PRECIOUS, BOYS????????

I've rewatched this a bazillion times now, and I LOVE IT. It, and pretty much all of these pictures, are making my day. :DDDDDDDD

And GIP (again, yes)!! I haven't retired my "Team Marky Mark" icon yet, partly because I haven't recovered from the Oscars yet, and partly because I can't find a good icon to take its place. Very few people make icons of The Departed, I've found, and even less make icons of Marky. Oh well, I think Leo's "Is my wife a money-grubbing whore??" face will tide me over until I find one.

Anyway! I am off to watch The Departed again do homework, and then watch The Departed again.

So, Stars on Ice... )

Um, I think that's it. I was going to whine at you about how half the kids in there NEVER SHUT UP, buuuut I'm too lazy to now. So SORRY, GUYS.
splits_thesky: (ttyd: squee!)
Grammys )

TODAY WINS SO HARD, YOU GUYS.
Even from, like, 4 AM, it was great. There was a Jensen-filled episode of Smallville on TV, followed by an ep of SG-1 (I mean, not on the same channel, but still). I was in fangirly HEAVEN.

And I finally bought a ticket to Stars on Ice!! I couldn't get anyone to come with me, but I'M GOING TO SEE MY BABIES, YOU GUYS. SDHIFSDFUIHSDOAIHSDKAHDAFKIHSADASKIDHASKODS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And my seat is kind of weirdly in the corner, BUT it was only $25, so I'm not complaining. :DDDDDD

AND!! I did my laundry, right, and for the first time EVER, all my clothes came out of the dryer completely dry. YOU GUYS, THIS IS HUGE, generally half of them are like, ON FIRE, and half of them are still wet. I may or may not have gone, "THIS IS MIRACULOUS!!!!!" really loudly while I was pulling my clothes out of the dryer. Uhh.

ETA: More Grammys )
splits_thesky: (house: rsl: like gold)
You guys, how long do you have to be a fan of something before you start spending money to go see it live?? Uh, specifically, I really, REALLY want to go to Stars on Ice, pretty much just for these two.
Um, so I don't really know anything about figure skating, and up until today, I didn't even know who John Zimmerman and Kyoko Ina were, aaaaand then I saw that damn cowboys on ice video ([livejournal.com profile] lokiie: LMFAO THIS ROUTINE IS LIKE HOMOSEXUALS ON ICE MAN, SERIOUSLY. THIS CAN'T GET ANY MORE GAY.) and was all, "HAY THAT GUY IS KYUTE!!!!!!!" So I went to my good friend youtube, and watched a bazillion of his performances, and then discovered Kyoko, his partner.
AJEFHUASYYFDGVJHASKDHYVAKDJAKSVGDBGGBASJKASDJKBSADJAD YOU GUYS, THEY ARE SO AMAZING. SOOOOOOOOOOO AMAAAAAAAAAAAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! I went into, like, insta-fangirl mode, and I've been flailing at Dez pretty much all day. She's so adorable, and gorgeous, and FLEXIBLE, WTF, and he's so HOTTTTTTTT, AND wears leather pants that are pretty much glued on (uhh, see my last post). And OMFG YOU GUYS, THEY'RE AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING. I know I keep saying this, but seriously, FANGIRLING ALL DAY.

And then!! omfg okay. So I was checking the ticket availability and all, and you know how you have to enter a verification code when you buy tickets?? WELL GUESS WHAT MINE WAS. )

AND THEY BOTH LIVE IN NEW JERSEY, DID I MENTION THAT????? WELL, THEY DO.

LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE!!!!! JUST LOOK!!!!!!!!!! )

You should watch all of the videos with them on youtube, but mainly the ones that are in my last post. Well, mainly just this one, it's my favorite (AND NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF THE PANTS).

...I don't even remember what the original point of this post was, but sdfuakhsdgyasyhdasgdayduykagsdafdjagsdkahdsashdn I LOVE THEM, OMFG.
splits_thesky: (sga: in the leg!)
wow wtf, how is everyone still awake?? I mean, I know it's SATURDAY NIGHT and all, but really. sleep, munchkins!! I have no idea why I just said that, so don't ask.
my brother and his wife and their baby and her parents (uh, my sister-in-law's, that is) were here most of the day today (oh, I'm at home for the weekend, I don't think I mentioned that). the baby slept through pretty much the entire visit. soooo yeah, I'm willing to bet even he's up right now. ooh, but! they might still change, but as of right now, his eyes are - well, like a steel grey, I suppose. it is EXCITING!! if my eyes can't be grey, I sure as hell am going to live vicariously through my nephew.

I was going to watch a couple episodes of SGA, but then I got lost in [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon's SGA fic, especially her "Farm in Iowa" AU, and you should all go read it now because it is amazing and there is a kid! who is adorable, might I add, and rodney and john. and you can't go wrong with rodney and john. I feel like that should rhyme. whatever.

um so anyway that's it, I think, I just wanted to rec that to you all and tell you that I am now a big bundle of shmoopy glee, and possibly the most content I've been - well, in a while, anyway. I also want a ham sandwich (uh, thanks to this fic, that I read many HOURS ago, just btw), but I've already brushed my teeth! plus I don't think we actually have any ham in the house. or dijon mustard, for that matter, and everyone knows you can't have a ham sandwich without dijon mustard. but not grey poupon, that stuff smells.

okay, that's really it now. I am off to snuggle into my blankets and pretend I too, have a snuggly john. KBYE FLIST, ILU.


O HAY LOOK IT'S 3:33 AM MAKE A WIIIIIISH!!!!!!!

ETA: siahygsudhjdasdasidhasihd loooooooooool omg, I LOVE THESE CRAZY KIDS. *dies*

Is LJ being a buttface for anyone else?? I don't mean with comments, I'm getting all of mine (I think, anyway), but it keeps giving me these stupid error messages.
Anyway.

SO. I was just going to link you here, where [livejournal.com profile] mcee had posted a bunch of youtube clips of Jared's time on Gilmore Girls, because he is the adorablest ever, and Dean/Rory is totally my OTP. Well, my Gilmore Girls OTP, anyway.
BUT THEN!! This post happened, and omggggggggg you all need to get your butts over there, and download, because baby!Jared?? Is making my LIFE. Seriously, like, I was all mopey because I have to last out two more weeks here before I can go home, but then baby!Jared happened, and YOU GUYS, I AM SO FULL OF GLEE. He has GOT to be the most adorable thing ever, I swear, what with his enormous smile, and - well - just his ENORMOUSNESS in general. HE IS SO LARGE, YET A TOTAL PUPPYDOG. I DO NOT UNDERSTAAAAAAAND!! Buuuuuut I love it!! FOREVER AND EVER.

Uhhh, also, does anyone have the 98 Degrees version of "Little Drummer Boy"?? I have it on my computer at home, but for some reason didn't transfer it to my laptop (which is named Jensen, just btw. I don't think I ever told you guys that.), and now I can't find it anywhere. I've been scouring the internet (including [livejournal.com profile] 1great_escape's Holiday Music Post), but TO NO AVAIL. And I really want to listen to it now, too.
COME ON YOU GUYS, LESS JUDGING ME, MORE UPLOADING!!
...plz.

It's not 100% to where I'd like it to be, but it's definitely a step in the right direction. GOOD JOB, NJ!! I am proud of my state. :)


In other news, Rush Limbaugh is a humongous asshole.
BUT I'm trying not to dwell on that, because it's kind of making me sick. So.


Anyway. lmao, right now I'm just sort of sitting here going, "yessssss!!!!!" and, "NJ REPRESEEEEEEEEEEEENT!!!!!!!!!!" :DDDDDD
