dannysgirlsg1: (Shanks - Pastor's Wife Bad Boy)



Yep. Knew him getting on Twitter was a wonderful thing.

dannysgirlsg1: (Michael - Balls)
So we all knew Michael getting on Twitter was going to be insanity. For me personally, it has been rather amazing. But I know he's been getting a lot of crap for his brutal honesty and his penchant for language (neither of which has surprised me or should surprise ANYONE who is a fan of his. I hate to use the 'true fan' statement because it sounds so elitist, but... *shrugs*). He's handled it like the boss he is (not that I would expect any less - his years of doing conventions has proven he can handle crazies).

Then THIS post comes along on Tumblr (and before somebody ELSE jumps on my shit yet again for passive aggressive posting and not handling the post directly, I DID reblog it and respond on Tumblr). 

I'm not necessarily angry at what the OP is saying. That is their opinion and they are welcome to have it. But it brings up this whole thing of how some people have been reacting to and treating Michael since he joined Twitter.

Michael is not an idiot. He knew what he was getting into when he finally decided to get on Twitter (I'm sure he'd already seen a lot considering how long Lexa has been on Twitter. This would also explain how he had no NOOB-ness when he started using it!). He's also said in the past that if he ever did get on Twitter, he was going to be brutally honest about shit (I have the video proof...it was at D*C '10). And that's exactly what we've been getting. And it's been excellent because it's not very often you get an actor or actress to be so up front and genuine. The other three original SG-1 actors definitely aren't, at least not to the same degree (and this is not a gripe against them for not being that way, of course). It's refreshing, and as a huge Michael Shanks fan, I'm LOVING every minute of it.

Because hey, we get to see Michael being Michael. Get to see that he is a normal person like all the rest of us (and that he curses to the Olympic medal degree - even puts me to shame, which is a task). And I'm not sorry that it's upsetting some people because they need to get it in their heads that this guy is NOT the character most people adore him for playing. They've lived with the delusion for so long that he is Daniel Jackson (there have been several occasions where I've been around people that have referred to him as DANIEL, rather than Michael) and that he's just as perfect as that character (which is kind of ridiculous anyways because Daniel IS the farthest from perfect a character can get!). Which is fucking absurd. He's human like all the rest of us. It is time for people to step OUT of the fiction world and into reality - where your favorite celebs are allowed to have a sense of humor, curse like a mutherfucker, and call you out on your bullshit, delusional ideas.

To hear those words come out of Michael Shanks' mouth in reference to ME...well...my life is officially complete...

Aaaanywho, I come bearing more pretties and a couple of notes that will come after the pretties...

Note: There are some pics here that AREN'T photo ops...I don't mind if you use them, as long as the proper credit is given. Also, I still haven't bothered with resizing, so be prepared.


Ooooo, what's behind the pretteh cut??? XD )

Okay, that's all I'm gonna post for now. Shockingly, I'm quite exhausted (yeah, I know...not expected WHATSOEVER!)...I'm gonna head off to bed...possibly watch me a bit of MMPR before sleep.

 Okay, so this wacky idea popped into my head tonight. I've already gone forth and made it vaguely public on the Twitterwebz (though, ironically, my hands are tied by one of the very most awesomest things that has ever happened to me on Twitter), and have decided I'm going to open up the opportunity to my flist (and all of LJ, essentially) as well...


Next Tuesday (June 8th) is Lexa Doig's birthday. And I thought it would be really cool for her fans to compile a Happy Birthday video message montage sorta thing to send to her and show her how much she is appreciate, both through her work and just as an awesome person in general. 


If you are interested in adding your message (whether it be an actual video message, or simply a picture of yourself holding up a sign that says 'Happy Birthday Lexa') to this video/project, drop a comment here with your email (All comments will be screened). I will send you all the detailed information so you will be able to take part in the fun. 


I am making this post public in the hopes that maybe even a few of you will spread the message?? I want to give everyone the opportunity to take part in this and my word only reaches so far on its own! 


I have also made anon commenting possible for the duration of the project for anyone directed here from other sites. 


Hoping to gain a few participants from this neck of the interwebz! I know several of you are fans of Lexa and I'm really, REALLY hoping you take the time to show her she's appreciated! :)

UPDATE: I forgot to mention this last night - if you are unable to make a video or picture entry, a simple text entry (kinda like what you would for for the MSOL birthday stuff) is fine, and it will have it's own spot in the video. If you'd like to just be added to a general list of well-wishers (which will be included in the 'credits' at the end), that is also possible.

The selection for today's Viewing Recommendation has turned out to be Shanks' first Andromeda episode, Star-Crossed (so there is the added bonus of getting to see Lexa too! ;) ). Well of course Andromeda is very difficult to find in a purely watch-only sense across the interwebz (hell, it's not even available to DL from any purchasable place such as Amazon Unbox or iTunes). Turns out that the entire episode is up on the Youtubez, of all places (which means there's no telling how long it'll actually be up - hopefully it holds out for the day at least).

So that is the whole purpose of this entry - to provide all the parts of Star-Crossed so everybody has the opportunity to watch, including you guys here on LJ. Yaaay! 

To anyone directed here from Twitterwebz: You see the hard work I put into this stuff for YOU guys?? I don't have to do all this shit, but I do. I HAVE this episode on DVD. I don't NEED these youtube parts to watch it. But I'm providing for YOU. I hope to see some more enthusiasm and interest out of you guys, or I will stop being so helpful.

To my flist: Can you guys tell I'm starting to get annoyed with a lot of non-participants on Twitter? I do this for them, and yet don't feel quite appreciated! XP

Anywho, here's the ep...

Andromeda, Star-Crossed )
Anon comments are disabled (for anyone here from Twitter without an LJ), but any comments you have for me you can just @ reply me on Twitter.

~Pip

P.S.: It took all my will power not to sit and just watch all these parts now...ESPECIALLY when Part 2 starts immediately with Gabriel and Rommie talking. *sigh*

First off, let me say thank you to all of you on my flist who took the time to vote for the first viewing recommendation. It ended up being a great success over on teh Twitterwebz, and there was an excellent turn out for the commentary of 'Need' (which as I said before, was the ultimate winner). [Poll #1548204][Poll #1548204]Also, I am curious to know if anyone here on LJ (that isn't on my Twitterwebz) actually participated in the viewing recommendations?? It would just be nice to have all around feedback on this! Thanks!

I mentioned this last night, the whole viewing recommendation poll for #ShanksSaturday over on the Twitterwebz. Depending on how this one goes, it could be happening every week. *shrugs* [Poll #1541719][Poll #1541719]
(Oh, of course 'Need' is the SG-1 episode. Forgot to put that in there, just in case you need clarification...Also, I picked all these randomly, off the top of my head. So there is no inclination towards anything I'm DYING to watch).


ALSO: Poll will remain open until Friday at 11 PM EST.

dannysgirlsg1: (Jack/Danny - Ball fun!)
It's been a little bit since I really jammed to this song...okay, so it was last week when I went to bed listening to music, but that is neither here nor there!


I figured I'd give a nice little 'So here's things' post...So here's things:


+ Guess the most prominent thing going on right now is we (the fellow roomies and I) are on the hunt for a place to live next year. We went looking around at apartments yesterday and today. Found two possible places off campus (one that's REEEEALLY NICE) and of course have Ragans considered into the equation. We've made a pro/con list of all the places and are going back to the two off-campus ones tomorrow to clear up some questions we have (and when I say off campus, I mean LITERALLY across the street from main campus - they are right off Tennessee street).


+ In big home news, we got a new puppy. Madre was telling me that he just showed up at the house. They took him to the vet to see if he had any identification (tattoo or chip, etc) because he had a collar but was very dirty. He wasn't tied to any particular owner, vet said. He figures someone just dumped him off. He's a 4-5 month pure black lab. So of course Smurf took to him instantly (good hunting dog and all) and named him Tucker (apparently he doesn't get the idea that it's kinda...weird reusing a name you already used for a pet...we've already had Tucker the kitteh). What's wrong is Smurf is playing favorites and completely ignoring Harley now...poor Harley. He always got more luvin' from me and Madre anyways.


+ Challenge 1 of Round 1 at [livejournal.com profile] shanks_lims  has kicked off!! Sign ups are open through the end of the first challenge, so you still have time to join! And even if you don't have the icon making skills or aren't quite up for ANOTHER lims, keep an eye on the comm anyways. Guarantee there will be much pretteh coming out of it! *nods*


+ Loving my French class! It's actually pretty easy to understand and I've been doing really well. Been acing all my assignments and I got a 94 on my first exam! *dances* I knew taking French would be a good idea - the fact that it's my favorite class this semester is saying a lot.


+ Trip to see the Canucks is pretty much a no go at this point. I don't have a set person to go with, and the dineros situation is even more dire. I am bummed, of course. But I need to, ya know, SURVIVE the rest of the semester so I can't just flit away money to watch hockey. Also, won't be getting my Kesler jersey in time if I did still go, so it kinda takes half the fun out of it.


+ If you haven't seen yet, all new promo for Absolute Justice HERE. We get full on Shanks in this one with speaking stuff and scruffy and HOE-MG I WANT THIS NOW!! A week and a half is TOO LONG!! (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] perpetuality1 for the heads up!)


Okie donkie, I think that covers everything right now. I was gonna mention how my loud twitter had stopped working since they had the system down, but it's finally posted again. So that's all straightened out!

Thinking it will because I think the humor behind it will be appreciated...




Picked up this little present for someone who's clearly expressed his opinion about the Twitterwebz. Tis a medium, so it'll probably be a little tight (not that this is a BAD thing), but it's better than XL (which is only available online) and the 2XL that was the only other one in the store.


Funny, yes??

DAMMIT, I FAIL AT LIFE! I was TRYING to not have another back to back to back twitter post, and here it happened again! GAH! I just got caught up with packing up all my junk for school (head back in the morning - classes start on Wednesday. WHERE did Winter Break GO?!) and ran out of time before the twitter post. *headdesk* MUST fix this problem! LOL!


Soooooo, GUESS what I FINALLY watched today?!? For like the first time evar?!


SUMURU! XD XD XD HOE-MG, I should know better to listen to a SPECIFIC someone when he they say it's bad and not to. Because I LOVED this movie in all it's cracktastic/craptastic awesomepops!! It was horribly bad scifi (Shanks was great, of course. That never changes) that would make for GREAT commentary and/or drinking game. I'll have to watch it again when I have access to the Twitterwebz and can do a proper twitter commentary!! *dances* I love Shanks bad!flicks!


Trying to form a birthday trip to S. Florida. There is a Canucks game on February 11th (10 days before I turn 21) that I'm DYING to see (how often do I get a chance like this to see my favorite hockey team play?!). The only guarantee I think I'll have at this point is somewhere to stay since, you know, I LIVED there for many years and know many people there (including Son of Smurf - he'd most likely be the one to put me up for the trip). So that leaves travel, a traveling companion (though I may have both taken care of it I can convince one of my Twitter friends to go), and the tickets for the game. I REALLY want this to happen - like for seriously. It would be the best birthday present (besides my Kesler jersey, which I want at this point BEFORE said game so I can properly represent the Canucks at the game if I go!)


And now, my yearly Top 25 most played songs meme for 2009. It's gonna be a tad different than last year's because of the whole Lord Danny brain dead period, so I had to start over in August. The rest of the year one (the more accurate assessment of the top 25 most played) is still trapped on Lord Danny's old brain. Also, the song count will be low:


Top 25 Most Played of 2009 )


Alright, bed time. I need to be up in 4 and half hours. AWESOME! *rolls eyes*
