Dear LJ,

Your shit is pissing me off. Please start properly working again. 

Love, Danny
justfornow: ([TSN] {Andrew} b&w - oh pretty thing)

A few days ago, Mark taught me how to play downloaded movies on my computer - and this was the first on my list. Needless to say, I am in love. I have to admit to rather brainlessly liking movies. I'm not much of a critic and it honestly takes a lot for me to hate a movie - but at the same time it takes a lot for a movie to truly move me and this did just that.

I thought I'd be a little freaked out by the premise, but this worked for me. And even though it was kind of scary, I was mostly just feeling the same fear that the characters were feeling.

Andrew Garfield and Carey Mulligan (and even Keira Knightley, who I usually greatly dislike) were fantastic. Just. Holy shit. I sobbed, ngl. This isn't a movie I am going to forget any time in the near future.

I also may have ordered the book off amazon about two minutes ago. 

Because this movie made me feel things and kind of got me motivated, here's a picspam of some of the most beautiful and moving film scenes ever.

Sorry about my lack of posting and commenting lately. Real life has been sort of a blur lately and I haven't spent much time on the internet. I love you all. <3

I have had the best past couple of days. :) I am feeling very happy and content with life right now. I have to say that it's a wonderful feeling. (The boy. Oh, the boy. <3 Holy moly. I don't even know what to do with myself.)

Hope you're all doing well. I'll catch up on flist and everything probably on Wednesday. Love you all. <3

Full disclosure: This post is really just an excuse to use my new favorite gif. :D
justfornow: ([AI] {Kris/Adam} Hold me tight.)

tl;dr about college and boys. )

-Let me explain my new addiction to you: House Hunters. My roommate got me hooked on it one day and there's been no going back. Thankfully for me, there are about a billion episodes and about half the shows on HGTV are House Hunters. It's really bad. But it kind of allows me to escape for a little while. I mean, most of those people on the show have more money than I will ever have (because I have this thing where I fall for the kind of guys who will never make money: musicians, artists, journalists, etc., and I am going to be a journalist myself and we all make basically nothing), so it's kind of depressing, but  a nice fantasy at the same time. 

-Finally, I need to flail about American Idol a little bit right now. I came into this season without high expectations. But I have been pleasantly surprised. Although my favorites were eliminated in the Top 24, I feel really, really attached to the people who are still around, especially, it seems, Casey and Stefano. Tonight, I swear i was going to die. I literally busted out into tears because of this: Link to YouTube because LJ hates me and won't properly embed.

I swear I haven't cried because of American Idol since Kris and Adam and the head kisses and the nailpainting. But this. This. Just, Jesus. Casey's reaction is so heartwrenching and sincere. I didn't even mean to cry. It just happened. I am so happy he is saved. And so happy that he'll be on tour.

And then, of course, this happened:

Stefano and James. Although I'm not the biggest fan of James, these two are absolutely adorable together - they have the best bromance, seriously. There's another adorable gif of them here and also "wrestling" here.

But also. Not to totally fail at fangirling (because nothing will ever, ever top Kradam), but doesn't the above gif kind of remind you of this? I mean, there's even the same height difference. Haha. 

The tl;dr of the above section? Danny loves American Idol. <3

I am always sad, I think. Perhaps this signifies that I am not sad at all, because sadness is something lower than your normal disposition, and I am always the same thing. Perhaps I am the only person in the world, then, who never becomes sad. Perhaps I am lucky.
-Jonathan Safran Foer -Everything is Illuminated

I kind of desperately need to reread this book.
justfornow: ([TSN] {Jesse} Just sitting here)
I watched The Social Network again last night and I noticed some things that I didn't notice the first time around. 

1. (And, yes, I realize that I'm probably the last person to realize this.) At the beginning when Mark is blogging, he is using livejournal. This amuses me for a couple of reasons: a) just simply because he's using LJ and that just makes me happy and b) people he knows in real life actually read his blog. 

2. I really, really dislike Sean. Not even just because he kind of weasels his way between Mark and Eduardo, but just simply because I think he's a bad person. That and the part with the cocaine (Is it cocaine? I can't remember.) at the end really freaks me out. 

3. Jesse really, really should have won the academy award.

4. I'm still hopelessly in love with Andrew.

All that being said, after I watched it, I dug into my "to read" Mark/Eduardo folder and ran across a really, really amazing fic that makes me feel all fuzzy inside. It's just... It feel so real to me. It has a hopeful ending, too, and so, so many emotions. It mostly takes place while they're still at Harvard, which for some reason I don't usually like. But this is amazing. And it's a longfic and everyone should read it. Really. 

crept out the front door slow by [ profile] ymorton . [NC-17] Based on the kinkmeme prompt- Eduardo has this thing, where whenever he's drunk drunk, he basically makes out with whoever's around. -- but then it became a massively angsty love story. oops.
justfornow: ([Glee] {Group} Family)

Found this on tumblr and decided it was worth posting because, ugh, boys, why??? That's so weird and it makes me feel awkward and kind of bad. Sometimes it makes me want to go back to girls. But then again, that doesn't really work for me either. And besides. Maaaaark. :D

I don't even know.

As a side note, I really need some junk food. Like. Really badly. But. I'm in a town that I don't really know and I'm comfortable now. But. Ice cream. Or chocolate. Or even better: chocolate ice cream.

I would comment on Glee kisses, but I think it might be like beating a dead horse already. So. <3 I have to say, though, that I finally watched "Sexy" all the way through last night. And Santana totally made me cry. Just. Jesus. 

/Pointless post is pointless.
justfornow: ([Stock] Young hearts run free.)

These last few days, I've finally gotten round to organizing my computer. And I found a bunch of pictures with a similar theme: pretty places to sleep and/or take a nap. I've appropriately titled the folder "Places to lay my head" and now I'm sharing it. 

Tomorrow is newspaper day, so I probably won't be around at all. I love you guys. <3

Oh. There are A LOT of pictures. FYI.

justfornow: ([Stock] {Boy} Leaning out the window)

I feel like I'm losing people, a lot of people. I don;t know if it's a me thing or if it's just people moving on. But it hurts and I want it to stop. So. Because I'm feeling down, I put together a little picspam. Today's theme? Girls with pretty hair as (mostly) seen from behind.

justfornow: ([AI] {Kris/Allison} Contented snuggle.)

-I'm finally sitting in my favorite little coffee shop after nearly two months of being deprived. It is just as amazing as ever, I have to say. 

About half an hour ago, this old guy (old, as in, like, 70) walks up to me and says, "Just so you know, you seem like a genuinely cool person and you have a really good aura." And then he handed me his business card and walked away. It was so random, but at the same time it kind of made me feel good about myself. I don't know if I believe in auras and all that, but it still felt nice. 

-Can I just say that I am REALLY excited for American Idol this season. Top 24 starts next week and there are a lot of people I genuinely like (and a couple boys I'll probably start slashing, but that's another story all together). I feel like it's going to be a lot better and more exciting than last year. So.

Like. This gif? My feelings exactly:

I think Brett Lowenstern is probably my favorite, though. I really hope he makes it through the cuts this week. Brett is this adorable kid for those of you who don't know.

-Besides American Idol, though, I feel really fandom-deprived. I've been hanging out with Mark A LOT. There goes my internet social life. XD 
justfornow: ([AI] {Kris/Adam} You smile like the sun.)
This is at least the third time I've done this meme, but it is one of my favorites, so here we go again.

The rules:
1. Reply to this post, and, if you want, I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

This time, it was [ profile] brokenheart05's fault. She chose:

American Idol: Kris/Adam manip
     It's Kris and Adam. Really, what more can I say? No matter how many fandoms I go through and how many ships I start liking, they will forever remain my OTP of OTPs. Plus, this is possibly the most amazing manip in the history of ever. 
Go behind the cut for more icon love. <3 )

So. Share the love. <3 

Real life post tomorrow probably. I am far too exhausted right now for much of anything now. 
justfornow: ([AI] {Lee/Siobhan/Tim} All smiles.)

So I stumbled across this playing on Encore tonight. I love it when I run across old movies that are exactly what I need right now. Remind me again why I don't own all The Karate Kid movies right now? They are some of my favorite movies of all times. 
justfornow: ([HP] Ϟ {H/Hr} tension)

So I got the chance to get out of town last night. It was a short trip (less than 24 hours), but very much worth it. My parents won a weekend in a cabin in this tiny town only about an hour from where I am. It's this sleepy little tourist town and there was still snow on the ground. It was beautiful. We got to have pizza and then we went out to the hot tub. We spent a long time out there and my mom and I got this brilliant idea to go roll around in the snow. It was awesome. After we got out, I got to sleep up in the loft of this little cabin. The wind was howling and the power went  out and - I don't know. It was perfect, really, and I slept like the dead. I woke up this morning to the smell of coffee and cooking sausage. So. Yeah. Best little weekend getaway ever, I think.

On my way back, I decided to stop at Wal-Mart. I bought myself a rose and bought a couple people valentines, including a package of little valentines that I'm going to give to a lot of people. (My favorite one says "You're pandatastic." :D) Also, after much deliberation, I got Mark a card and some Reese's. The card is just a picture of Snoopy and Woodstock in their motorcycle and sidecar. It says, "Happy Valentine's Day from your favorite sidekick." And yeah. 

So. In honor of the fact that tomorrow is Valentine's Day, I'm picspamming love. I would do it tomorrow, but I'm not sure I'll have time. Enjoy. <3

justfornow: ([Stock] The world is mine)

It's been awhile since I've done an impromptu picspam of pretty. This time, because I'm lame and cannot stop thinking about it, the theme is travel and adventure. Enjoy. <3

Also I'm part of this literary arts magazine for school. I was kind of thinking about retooling and submitting my Wanderlust story. That's probably a really stupid idea, but I'm rather fond of it and... Yeah. Haha. 
justfornow: ([TSN] {Andrew/Jesse} Whisper in my ear)

Justin: It’s more than that. It’s where we made love for the first time.
Brian: That wasn’t love. I just gave you a rim job and fucked your brains out.
Justin: It was love to me.

I desperately need to find some place to watch the American version of Queer as Folk online before I do something stupid like spend $114 on amazon for the series box set. 

Or. Oh wait. I found it for $75 here.

Someone please save my bank account. 
justfornow: ([Away We Go] {Burt/Verona} Love me)

I just finished watching this movie. I'd bought it a couple months ago, but I never made time to watch it. Tonight, Logan left me alone again and I just needed something to kill some time. And, shit, I'm in love with this. Seriously. If you haven't seen this movie yet, please do. The acting is spot-on. It tugs at all the right heartstrings. On top of that, the soundtrack is amazing. I could listen to Alexi Murdoch all day. 

So, here, because I'm feeling so much love for this movie, have a little picspam of pretty.

justfornow: ([TSN] {Andrew/Jesse} Whisper in my ear)

My new celebrity crush: Andrew Garfield. I really wanted to see Never Let Me Go, but now that I know he's one of the main characters I will probably hyperventilate until I get my hands on it. I mean, just look at him. So pretty. 

I also did the unthinkable and joined The Social Network fandom. There went the last of my free time. It has, however, helped me deal with my lost iPod. So. That's a good thing, I suppose. 

Well shit

Why did I get into journalism again? :/
justfornow: ([AI] {Kris/Adam} Hold me tight.)

More nostalgia. I stumbled upon this video and, God. I think if there ever were a perfect ship, this would be it. I really need to find myself some more amazing Kradam fic to roll around in.
justfornow: ([ATWT] {Luke/Noah} First kiss)

For as much as I love Luke/Reid, these two had some seriously beautiful moments. I'm feeling seriously, annoyingly nostalgic for these days. ATWT, why you break my heart? :/
