Post B: The pop culture.
So, I've watched and read some new stuff and I haven't had a chance to babble on about it! So, here I go! I'll make sure to bold each thing, so you know when to skip and all that. ^_^

Veronica Mars

A good friend of mine came into town a couple weeks back. I usually introduce her to some new anime, but this time, she decided she wanted to introduce me to VM.

To be honest, I'd heard that the show existed, but never what it was about. So, hey, why not give it a whirl?

And it is AWESOME. I only got to see the first disc, but yummy! Sure, a lot of it is predictable, but it wasn't a cheesy predicable. More of "A-ha! I was so right, niener niener!" After awhile, I shut up with my predictions as I was thinking I might be becoming rather annoying.

Which is when coldfury showed up and started spouting off all of the predictions I was keeping in my head! My favorite: Evil!Parker. Er, that would be Troy, that guy Veronica starts dating to get over her ex. And yeah, he just radiates Parker from BtVS.

The amusing thing about Troy, actually, is that the actor (so I hear) plays Jimmy on Smallville. And Veronica looks like Chloe from VM... and it's so weird! If I actually still watched that crap, I might be weirded out!

Anyway, so I'll be checking more of VM out in the future! Whee, more shows to watch.

So You Think You Can Dance

Words cannot describe how PISSED OFF I was when **spoiler here, don't read if you haven't watched the last episode!** Jessi was kicked off! GRRRRRRRR. I was so mad that I actually signed a petition online to get her back on the show... and I wrote an email to Fox. *Cough*

For those not in the know, here's what happened: Jessi's heart started freaking out on her so she went to the emergency room the morning of the Wednesday performances. Her EKG turned out to be wonky and they weren't sure if she'd be back in time for the elimination round. So, if she didn't make it, she'd be officially kicked off. If she managed to get back from the hospital in time, she'd be in the bottom and have to dance for her life.

She made it. Danced her missed cha-cha with Pasha. (It was HOT HOT HOT.) She did a solo that was eh, but compared to the other three girls, it was actually pretty decent.

And so it's time to say who goes home. Nigel tells Lauren her solo sucked big monkey balls (and since she's his pet, that's saying something).. and then has Jessi come forward, and with no explanation, tells her she's gone.

UGH. UGH UGH UGH. You just know she got kicked off because she went to the hospital. And that makes me so damn mad! She was the best female dancer. And no one got to vote for her. ARGH. SO WRONG.

Angel/Devil romance... not as good as advertised

I finished reading Michelle Rowen's Angel With Attitude romance novel. It was so damn CRAPPY. Bleh. I was so excited about the idea of an angel and a devil crashing in the grey for some action.

Instead, I got some awful stereotyping, some hurl-worthy sap, and skipped over sex. Umm, WTF?

And one last thing...


... Okay, not really, but I'm seeing Mr. Brooks tomorrow, so let's hope it doesn't give me ideas.

Heh. Nick is a gigantic dick, and looking back, I can't see the constant Ray-ray as anything but a lack of respect. But then, I'm further than you are.

Yeah, you'll be ahead of me for quite awhile, as I won't be grabbing the next book in hardcover... well, at least I'm not planning on grabbing it.

I'm trying to recall what you said about the fifth book, and since I hadn't been reading them at the time, I'm coming up blank. ... Something about how Ivy should have bit it or something... maybe. *Shrug*

But anyway, yes, I'm not even to part you keep alluding to and I still hate Nick a whole bunch. Here's hoping at least Rachel will come to her senses soon! ... Please come to your senses soon, Rachel!

Which book are you on? I'm having trouble remembering what happens when. I assume you're on the book that happens in Michigan?
ifritah From: ifritah Date: July 3rd, 2007 05:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
A Fistful of Charms (book 4).

*dog look* Who's Nick?
ninjadebugger From: ninjadebugger Date: July 3rd, 2007 05:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nick is a character in the Hollows books. In the one she's currently reading, he's the main character's SO, and he has a habit of calling her "Rae-rae". It's very annoying, and I'm not sure why she puts up with it.

EX significant other, dammit! I am in denial about her being stupid enough to take him back when she has Spike! *Beat* Er, I mean, when she has Kist. *Whistles*
ninjadebugger From: ninjadebugger Date: July 3rd, 2007 05:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
You're making a fairly large assumption there.
ifritah From: ifritah Date: July 3rd, 2007 05:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm not sure which assumption you're talking about. That he's her ex? That she's going to take him back? That Kim Harrison purposefully made Kist to be Spike in disguise?

The assumptions are rampant!
ninjadebugger From: ninjadebugger Date: July 3rd, 2007 05:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, and I'm not going to tell you which one I was referring to. It's so easy when you're evil.
ifritah From: ifritah Date: July 3rd, 2007 06:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
*Snerk* Well, I'm going to assume it's the taking him back one. *Crosses fingers*
wondervixen From: wondervixen Date: July 3rd, 2007 05:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, okay. Thanks. I felt like I should have known and just couldn't place it.
reirrac From: reirrac Date: July 3rd, 2007 06:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oooooo, thats a good series. I couldn't wait for the 5th book in paperback, A few demons more, so I bought it in hardback. If you want to borrow it, just let me know.
ifritah From: ifritah Date: July 3rd, 2007 06:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
wondervixen and I have this strange thing where we won't borrow a DVD or book if it's something we plan to own. It's weird, I know, but I'm just grateful she came along so I'm not the only strange one anymore!

Anyway, thank you for the offer, but I'll wait until I buy it. Who knows, I might finish the fourth book, freak, and just HAVE to read the next one RIGHT NOW and go buy it in hardcover.

Oooh, I can trade in my Anita Blake hardcovers to pay for it! YES.

A Chloe icon! I've been wathcing the beginning seasons of Smallville and I had forgotten how awesome Chloe is...too bad all the other characters aren't as cool. Hope you get recovered from the move soon :)
ifritah From: ifritah Date: July 3rd, 2007 10:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yay Chloe!

But oh gods, you're desperate enough for TV shows that you're rewatching Smallville??

Okay, after I get settled, you're coming over to my house, we'll rent some Veronica Mars, and I'll get you hooked like me! ^_~
rune_karidan From: rune_karidan Date: July 5th, 2007 04:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm actually skipping around in Smallville - only watching the ones I deem 'good' enough to watch again :) Also, I rather liked most of season 4 so I've been watching that. (What else am I supposed to do with like a million little people running around my house?) Only 3 more days...
From: saifai Date: July 4th, 2007 01:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Didn't watch but maybe an episode or three of VM. Always had something else to watch. One of these days I'll get caught up on it all.

RE: So You Think You Can Dance, I really can't believe they kicked off Jessi. That's just mean, and they had to have done it because of her health. She danced her ass off for that one...

Sticking to the romance of the online variety for the moment... *goes back to reading more Harry/Draco smut*
ifritah From: ifritah Date: July 9th, 2007 09:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
It was mean that they kicked off Jessi! I can't wait to see if they say anything about it come Wednesday.

They'd better!
