I've been radio silent in DW/LJ for a while now but I've been busy in Tumblr because while I find the comment function in Tumblr lacking I've fallen in love with how easy it is to reblog. There's no thinking involved just hit reblog on a post you like and you're done.

But sometimes I miss discussions and I love going to DW/LJ to see people go on long discussions with each other.

I've also been busy in RL, I joined a 5K run which I finished in 35 minutes (yay, me!) except I think I injured my left foot. It's not as painful now and I enrolled in another hip hop class, my new teacher is fantastic. I think I like her better than my old dance teacher mostly because she went into fundamentals of hiphop first before teaching us the choreography, which I'm glad to report I was able to follow despite the difficult steps!

Go, me!

I still don't have the swag for a proper Hiphop routine but at least I can follow now!

The one thing I haven't been silent about is my love for Glee and I've found some really lovely people in Tumblr, which makes watching the show more enjoyable. But I feel most of the time I find myself wanting to reach in the TV and hit the writers on the head with a mallet.

Actually this quote below is pretty accurate statement about what I feel for Glee:

Glee is the ultimate pop-cultural hate-fuck for me. It gets so much right, champions the unloved and unlovely, produces some genuinely sublime, can’t-stop-smiling coups de theatre, and is, when all’s said and done, one of the most heart-felt, funny and truly progressive shows on television today. Or ever.

But FUCK ME if it isn’t also skull-poundingly awful, misogynistic, bi-phobic, atrociously plotted, bloated with its own sense of moral superiority and forever teetering on the edge of eye-clawing insanity. It drives me berzerk that I cannot stop watching it, even as I’m throwing things at the television and screaming “What the fuck do you mean ‘I’m relatively sane, for a girl.’?! You’re just fucking with me now, aren’t you Murphy?”

RM and Glee’s Powers-That-Be have so far to go to make the show into a consistent, cohesive whole, but they keep falling back into dropped plots and contemptibly lazy characterisation. I keep waiting and waiting for them to pull it together, even for a single episode, and it never quite happens.

And yet. And yet. I love it. I do. It’s so frustrating to hear Ryan Murphy’s hacky bloviations on his own self-importance, and his overweening sense of creative pomposity. But I still feel intensely, heart-breakingly grateful to him for making moments like this happen. Every time I think I’m out, they just keep pulling me back in. So if you’ll excuse me, I need to go lie down and think about Darren Criss’s dreamy, dreamy eyes for a little while.

Seriously, show, why can't I quit you? And half the time I don't want to quit you!

I don't know what to do with Fringe these days. I will say they're doing a good job with altOlivia (no, I will never call her faux!Olivia because altOlivia was never a fake Olivia Dunham she's just an alternate version of our Olivia Dunham) lately and I was pleasantly surprised at how that particular plot point played out.

I will say the trend of shipping Olivia (any Olivia) with any guy other than Peter continues and after watching Lincoln Lee and his reactions... I think... I think some of the trouble I have relating to Peter has to be laid on Joshua Jackson's feet. The writers drop the ball on Peter a lot of times (and, I really don't consider parallels between Peter and Olivia as development but more of lazy writing and trying to bludgeon me with their OMG SO MEANT TO BE mentality) but I think Josh Jackson isn't doing much to help my impression of Peter Bishop.

But he is excellent at playing Peter Bishop as Walter Bishop's son.

All the Walter Bishops in the multiverse should stop experimenting on all Olivia Dunhams in the universe. Seriously. Stop it Walters.

Fandom Fringe
Spoilers: Up to 3x17
Summary: This is a single moment and everything is happening now. [Olivia, Walter, Peter].

Awesome fantastic gen vid on Fringe and the song just fits so well with the show: the melancholy, the sadness and the regrets. It echoes everything I love about it and, for me, it really does right by Peter because for once I feel something for him. I love the parallels (and it works here so, so well) and Elizabeth Bishops and, of course, the very heart of it Olivia. Always Olivia struggling to work against the tides trapping her from all corners but she continues on despite it because that's what she does.

Despite the promise of the Alt-Verse and the Trio interaction I still haven't seen Fringe's last episode. Recent Events and Revelations has really made me grumpy about the direction and I'm flashing back really badly on Alias season 3.

The Vampire Diaries on the other hand.

OMG. I LOVE (almost) EVERYTHING IT CHOSE TO BE.

Comedy is very much my happy place now, Parks and Recreations continues to make me fall hopelessly in love with the show.

Even if it frustrates me a LOT Glee is so very much my happy place too. How did this happen? It's because at the end of the day I'm a sap, that's why and I like music! But the main reason is because I love the cast so, so much. They're just adorable dorks who are, to paraphrase someone in the cast, 'disgustingly' co-dependent.

I love how they spend all their waking hours together even in their off days! I really believe that the biggest reason why this show succeeds is the cast. They are all fanboys and fangirls and most of them even admit to being the Rachel Berry-Artie fusion in their high school days.

(Although, much as I love the cast, the show I think Modern Family was more deserving of that win.)

Also, Santana Lopez is my Queen. She's like the Cordelia Chase of the show!

I'm also happy about Rachel finally getting friends. She is a million annoying things but she's also so lonely that I cheered when the show finally allowed for friendship.


How I Met Your Mother is in a weird place for me right now, I like the story lines it has this season although it doesn't have the zing it did during the first three seasons I like it.

Marshall's story line is hitting me a little too much for comfort. I like it but... still too much for comfort considering my RL situation.

I'm still trying to process Fringe's last episode. I'm not used to being so disgruntled with this show and I do home Professor Professorson was lying and playing with another agenda. I will be pissed if they don't play it straight.

One of the reasons I've come to love The Good Wife so much is because all of the characters are layered and complex. Something that, as fantastic as Fringe is, is sometimes not doing well.

I actually enjoyed the latest episodes of Glee! They were so fun!

Ever since my mom got sick (she's recovering really well now, btw!) she's been stuck at home and for a few months I've also been stuck at home and her favorite shows narrowed down to Oprah, Midsommer Murders, 'So You Think You Can Dance?' and cooking shows.

I found Murders watchable, skipped the Oprah and found myself glued to the cooking shows and fascinated with SYCD.

SYCD and John Stamos are to blame for my newfound interest for Glee.

I remain fascinated with how Heather Morris could dance with those heels, right after she throws her hat to Puck? Jaw drop.

I like Ted even when he's being pretentious because he pokes fun of it himself the new episode was the first time I really, really disliked him. Since when was Ted ever attracted to that kind of helpless and childlike woman? Or, as the Japanese anime call 'em Moe blobs.

Ted deserves to get clocked in the head.

You're on the list Theodore Evelyn Mosby.

And, um, I prove myself to be a sheep because I has a tumblr except I don't know what to do with it yet.
