IN MY HEAD! ARGHHHH! !&%$%§!
Thank you so much for doing this! From my prompts it maybe sounds like I'm a little bit crazy. Well, that's true, but I'm harmless crazy, not scary crazy, I swear! Have a few more specifics about my requested fandoms:
I stayed mum on that "LJ changes the user info design" freak out because, well, I really like it. :P
Since I studied the stuff (art history) for a while, I thought I would give it a try. Why is this internet Rorschach stuff always so creeply accurate? I love Impressionism. It has a very soothing, meditative effect on me.
Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...
Balanced, Secure, and Realistic.

I was never far away, really. Just er... I was just over there, hiding behind the ... um couch. Yeah, that sounds like a totally reasonable excuse for almost three month of being AWOL. Right?
In other news, my Sims are stupid. Here is photographical evidence:
See Dustin Broke setting his ass on fire with the Freetime toy-train. No, there was no sprinkler or fire alarm system in that room and it took Angela like forever to pull out the extinguisher, so you can probably guess what happened to him.

Ach Kinnas, jetzt schaut doch nicht so bedröppelt drein! Wir können doch nicht immer gegen die bessere Mannschaft gewinnen. :P
Na, wenigstens die Nachbarn fackeln ihre Böller trotzdem ab. =D

FINALE OHO! FINAAAAALE OHOHOHO!!!
The ball is round; the game is 90 minutes; and in the end the Germans win*!
*if they deserve it or not :P (almost gave me a heart attack the fuckers)
|Subject:||Screenshot Recap: The Long Goodbye (Die Jagd nach der Formel)|
Okay, every three weeks then, but here comes the next recap. The Long Goodbye was episode (#18) in production, but if not for A Death in the Family I would consider this the last one. I'm not sure if it's Danny's wilde, whitish hair or that old married couple feeling I get from the episode, probably both. The Long Goodbye was directed by Roger Moore and has a guest appearance of his daughter Deborah.
|Subject:||Screenshot Recap: A Death in the Family (Adel Vernichtet)|
So, um, when was it that I promised screenshot recaps of all episodes to the fandom? Late January the community archive says. Oh my, I'm so lame. But finally I've gotten started and will hopefully be able to post an episode per week (or every second week at least) from now on. I'll do this in my reversed order of the episodes, because I'm special like that. Well that, and a few of the early episodes have been discussed already.
A Death in the Family is considered the last episode of the series by many fans, and I'm no exception. It was the second to last produced episode (#23), The Man in the Middle being the last one (#24).

... you dream the weirdest fannish shit ever.
It started out harmless enough with some emo-angsty Highlander stuff, probably because I read on fandom-lounge about that remake somebody wants to make of the first movie (boo!) and then suddenly everything morphes into this obscene Stargate SG-1 PWP (The fuck? I don't even watch/read that show).
The SG-1 team was held hostage on a spaceship (station?) where they were forced to work as sexslaves for the crew. They seemed to really like it too. No seriously. There were orgies and at one point Daniel gave Jack a blowjob in a locker-room, having spouted off techno-babble as foreplay. Then I
came woke up. O.O

|Subject:||My thoughts on the 1.Semifinal of the ESC 2008|
post a comment
This is the first year that I actually watch the Semifinals and all I have to say is: "Was für ein Scheiß!"
Of my top 10 (below) only Norway, Israel, Romania and Armenia made it. What does this tell me? That I've really gotten to old for the ESC in its present form?
Who knows? Will go to bed cranky now.
3. Andorra (Yes the outfit was horrifying, but I like the song.)
9. San Marino
You know what's adorable? Witnessing your almost seventy year old, grumpy, bitter,
sometimes rather assholish father turn into a smiley faced, exitedly squeeing and flailing five year old in front of your eyes. What is needed for such a pleasant transformation to take place?

You Oliver/Christian people have got to be kidding me?
When this new fannish German Soap Opera phenomenon on (and off) lj first showed up via frogspace on my friendslist, I had to do quite a few double takes.
Posts: Blablabla Verbotene Liebe gay storylines awesomecakes!!11!1
Posts: Blablabla Oliver/Christian so cute omg!
Me: Who?! *looks up* Holy shit, it's really the same Oliver (Jo Weil) from seven years ago! o.o
I think I've mentioned it before, German daytimesoaps were pretty much my first ever online fandoms from 1999 to 2002 or so. Unsurprisingly it were only the gay storylines back then that got me into the mess. Yes, we had them back then too. With hot seXX0rs even. So the first thing I thought about Oliver/Christian was of course: Ha! I bet their scenes are not as hot as Tom/Ulli was. I stipulated this from the way they toned it down with Tom/Oliver later on the show, probably because of the predictable BUTWHATABOUTTHECHILLUNS!? WHOPUTTHATGAYPORNINMYDAILYSOAP!? reactions back in 2000.
So to possibly prove my point sometime, I digged out my old vhs tapes, put up some clips on my youtube account, and wham ... D:
Really kids, I'm to old for this Web 2.0 shit! Almost a thousand hits overnight? And the mob is demanding translations? Bu-but colloquial English is HARD!? Of course I translated the crappy German dialogues anyway. You can find the transcripts here.
Now also for my flist to marvel at, the probably most gay "first time" scene on a German daytimesoap ever:
Tom/Ulli, New Years Eve 1999/2000
Lets just hope that Oliver/Christian break that record with their third or fourth time, right?

Man I love this golbal warming shit. :P
|Subject:||I Can Has Technical Beta?|
So, are some of my native-English-speaker flisters maybe a bit bored over the weekend and could quick-beta some stuffes for me, even if they have no idea about the fandom (Persuaders)?
It's three slash ficlets, together approx. 3000 words (PG13-R).
You would just have to look over the syntax, word use, and grammar (tenses), and compensate that I really suck at punctuation.
Pretty please? *flutters with eyelashes*
What's with the people who still post very common screen/promo-shots of a fandom put through photoshop and claim they drew them? Newbies the lot of them? Am I just old and jaded?
See, I can't draw for shit either and hence love diddling around with screens and photoshop filters too. And guess what, if I find something looks really cool I'll post it as photoshop fanart. What's so difficult about that? Oh wait, it's not as reputable in fancircles (lying is not all that reputable in fancircles either, just saying). Who cares? Seriously people, stand by your
pirated photoshop copy! Claiming your art is a drawing when it's obviously not just makes me roll my eyes and click the ole back button, but if you tell me which filter you used for this or that effect, I'll squee and love you forever. But I don't count, I guess. *sighs*
PS: Despite this little rant, stuff like that doesn't bother me much, I just find it totally unnecessary.
PPS: Still sick. Yeah. That flu is helluvah clingy. *coughs*
