I'm having one of those days where I hate everything and everyone, and anyone who talks to me is either getting infected by this monster mutation of a cold I've contracted, or getting bitchslapped. It doesn't help that it's Open Day at my university - where I live on campus in college - so to get anywhere I have to walk through hordes of grating, unspeakably eager kids who appear - to my fevered brain - to be nothing more than bags of flesh full of dreams swilled from advertisements and coke, and projected personas built on nothing but air, pretension, and the bitter illusion of emancipation. Also, crackwhores.

So what I've learned from this is that it takes me becoming hallucinogenically ill and having to walk through a crowd of sloppily dressed tourists (I mean really people, you're about to go to university, home of the hopelessly indie and the never-say-die-punk. There is no excuse for dirty highschool tracksuits) for me to lose control of my tightly buried font of misanthropic rage.

This has been a PSA coming straight at you from the black oilslick soul of a girl who hasn't eaten solid foods in five days.

In other news, I may become a pornstar.

Linkspam + Doctor Who  
So I've always kind of loved Keanu Reeves, a love that has been tempered by the constant Keanu!bashing of the internet. Finally, I am vindicated! Keanu is an awesome guy! Keanu has had a very hard life! Basically, Keanu is awesome! And talented, no matter what people say! Exclamation point!

Keanu Internet Meme:
"I had a few friends working special effects jobs on the Matrix movies, he bought all of them f---ing HARLEYS for Christmas during the shoot for the second one.

One of those guys, Paul, said that Keanu was the most sincere, humble and lovely dude he'd ever met. Said he eschewed contact with the cast in favour of hanging out with the crew, was the only guy the martial arts coaches respected out of the whole cast, and was the bravest man he's ever met."


Salon: Queer Imagery in Lady Gaga's 'Alejandro'.
I loved it. If anyone feels the urge to squee/over-intellectualize with me in the comments, please, act on it. (I'm looking at you Sarah, re: deepthroating a rosary.)

(Also: From here, on entering her dressing room backstage at Berlin:

"With the walls and ceiling draped in black, it resembles a pop-Gothic seraglio. But while scented candles burn churchishly, a gorgeous vintage record player on the floor – surrounded by piles of vinyl – and works of art hung on the wall give it a cheerful air. There is a table, laid with beautiful china. There are flowers, growing in the dark. And at the head of the tea table, among the flowers: Gaga...The effect is one of having been ushered into the presence of a very powerful fairytale queen: possibly one who has recently killed Aslan, on the Stone Table." )


FEMINIST HULK SMASH EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH MS.!

J: Sorry. Did I hurt your feelings?

feministhulk: HULK OK. THANKS FOR ASKING.



Could This Be Our Emma Frost?
Rosamund Pike is rumoured to be the forerunner for the part of Emma Frost in the upcoming X-Men: First Class, which is about Magneto and Xavier in their youth. Because Emma is one of my favourite characters, I was initially non-plussed by the choice, as I've only ever seen Rosamund Pike play polite, genteel characters such as Jane Bennet and Johnny Depp's wife in The Libertine. However, the choice has grown on me. She's a talented actress, and I have no doubt that Matthew Vaugh, director of Kick-Ass and Layer Cake, would not be looking at her unless she could pull off the verve of Emma Frost. Besides, I'd much prefer her talented ass to the nightmarish idea of a Hollywood Blonde like Katharine Heigl being hired.

New Sons of Anarchy pictures + News
Apparently, there's going to be a Porn!Party scene. I can get down with that. Also, the Sons of Anarchy chapter in Belfast is called 'Sam Bell'. IDK, I just thinks that's awesome. (Warning, lots of spoilers in the link.)

Doctor Who 5.10: Vincent and the Doctor

The way artwork moves our lives, the strange ways a few swashes of colour on canvas can resonate through the years, imprint on our minds in ways we can't even remember, and the strange, quiescent, quivering fury of things we find beautiful for no reasonable reason at all. I like to think this was the heart of Vincent and the Doctor.

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...I'm working. )
