I went out with my mom today to return some clothes that didn't fit my brother. We had lunch in Japantown where I got some new Japanese candy to try. Always fun. And before we came home, we stopped at the grocery store to get a few things. In line, I looked over at the magazine rack briefly and saw piercing blue eyes staring at me. This is what happened next: *gasp* 'Ryan!' *grab* Good to know my crush on him is still alive and well, LOL. Anyhoo, boy is looking gooooood. And now I'm about to watch All Good Things in which he plays a killer or something, IDK. I look forward to being scared and aroused at the same time.

As I said on Twitter, 'When I say 'GUH' what I mean is 'GET IN MY PANTS'. Obviously.' )
spacemonkeyluvn: (dw/holmes:: DO EPIC SHIT)
Today started out shitty. I had hoped to do something with my mother, but as I should have expected, it did not go as planned. I ended up crying and walking around the neighborhood a bit (listening to the DW soundtrack). Woe is me ;)

AND I was texting a coworker from my store today and she told me that the Co-Manager, my former 'boss', is talking shit about me to the other associates now that I'm gone. She's telling the new Assistant Manager that I didn't like her and that I was the 'weak link'. I just. If this is true, I don't know how to feel. On the one hand, I shouldn't care. I'm out of there. I'm done. But how unprofessional is that? I'll admit that once she started attacking me, I was less likely to give it 100%, but I made an effort. If not for her, for the store. I was there just short of 2 years. I've worked 6-day weeks and made sacrifices to help out. She barely knew me. And I hate to say it, but it does bother me that she would say that. That my former associates and friends are hearing this.

The only bright spot in my day was finding out that my Amazon package had been delivered:

I had NO IDEA we lowly Americans were also getting the holographic cover. Sa-weet!

NC-17 rating for Ryan Gosling's new movie? WTH could be so explicit, they want to give it an NC-17?

Exciting casting news for Guy Ritchie's upcoming Sherlock Holmes sequel! Just in case you hadn't heard yet.

As seen on [ profile] kimberlyfdr's journal, something that made my year ♥_♥

‎So the last couple of days have been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me. Mostly down though. So more like a plummeting emotional elevator? I don't have the energy to go into it now, but at the moment, things are... okay.

Got a new manager at work though and I'm a little anxious. Only worked with her once so far. She seems alright, but I just don't really know. We'll see how it plays out I guess.

White Collar was wonderful. Loved the ending (and the bit right before, especially). Not happy it's time for the midseason finale already though. Psych was hilarious. Shawn being a fanboy was adorable.

Merlin's starting up again soon. I look forward to the insanity ;)

And I'm currently enjoying Grandma's House. Normally I wouldn't really be into this sort of stuff - I get TERRIBLE second-hand embarrassment - but I love Simon Amstell. I love that he can't really act and he looks like he's going to bust out laughing at any moment. It's all just part of his charm. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from the first episode. )

And in fandom collision news, in an interview with Benedict Cumberbatch (my brother actually asked me if that was his real name) here, he was asked who his favorite actors/actresses were and he responded:

Stephen Dillane, Mark Rylance, Simon Russell Beale, Eddie Redmayne, James McAvoy, Casey Affleck, Ryan Gosling, Jimmie Stewart, Adrian Scarborough, Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Rod Steiger, Steve McQueen, Martin Sheen, Alison Janney, Sissey Spacek, Meryl Streep, Nancy Carroll, Juliette Binoche, Maggie Gylenhall, Amy Adams. There is an infinitely bigger list... God I hate lists!

Obviously I did the bolding there ;) But yeah. I don't know. That made me really happy. I 'know' that Ryan is a wonderful actor. I've seen it. And he was nominated for an Academy Award ffs. But I still see him as Sean Hanlon/Young Hercules. Either way, I'm proud of him.

And I'm proud of Toma! He is no longer considered a Jr. and now has his very own page


And for what it's worth: I won't be crossposting anything of mine or anyone else's to FB or Twitter. And while I doubt anyone would want to crosspost anything I've said, I'd rather you didn't. Right then. That's enough of that.


Finally, come and join [ profile] sherlockland!

Dead Man's Bones

I only wish that 'NAME IN STONE' had been on that album as well.

And in case you wanted to know more about them (I did!), [ profile] luxover has a fantastic DMB primer here.

AND here's an article written by Ryan Gosling (with pictures) - Ryan Gosling’s Diary of the Dead


Is it completely ridiculous to feel like you're cheating on a crush with another crush? Because that's how I feel. Like I thought I was 'over' Ryan Gosling and I'm now 'with' Ikuta Toma, but here comes Ryan again and we have a history. Ooooor maybe that's just me, LOL.

But even ignoring the whole Ryan aspect, I actually REALLY enjoy their music. It's the kind of weird, spooky-yet-fun kind of stuff I love. Ever since I was little, I've wanted to live in Halloween Town (the Nightmare Before Christmas one, not so much the Disney version). Or at the very least, have haunted house sounds playing in my apartment. In my dorm I kept my Halloween decorations up all year long. I am biased, having been born in October, but Halloween is my favorite holiday. Point is, I'm disappointed in myself for not knowing about this project earlier. But now that I know, I will enjoy the hell out of it.

Between Jude Law being on a Japanese show with Toma, finding out Ryan is in a Halloween-musical style band ('Halloween hymns'), seeing Joe Jonas tweet about The Notebook (making real men cry), and finding out that USA Network is filming crossover promo shoots featuring USA Characters (White Collar/Psych for example!! -, it's been a weird mind-bendy couple of days. Now, if I found out Ryan was a fan of the Mighty Boosh, I could call it a day.

Every time I want to post something happy, my mother does something that just makes me feel sick to my stomach. Cut so I don't have to see it )

Ugh. I hate how it seems like all I do lately is complain, especially about her.

I went to the doctor today. My stomach's been acting up and I just wanted to make sure everything is alright. It's probably my diet, but I have some pills and I'm going back in 2 weeks.

ANYWAY. There are many things making me happy right now. Mostly fandom-related, but I'll take what I can get.

Toma's been promoting the hell out of his new movie so he's appearing all over the place. Too quickly for the subbers to keep up, so I'm watching most of it raw. Which is interesting, lol. It's alright. I love his voice. I'd be happy listening to him read the phone book. Wouldn't understand a damn thing, but I'd have that shit on repeat. I'm not sure where I was originally going with this, so I'll move on. Though I must say, GODDAMMIT I WISH I WAS IN JAPAN RIGHT NOW! I don't know how long I'll have to wait to see his movie *pouts*

Ummm... in other news. I might be falling for Ryan Gosling all over again. Well, kind of. It feels more mature than before, LOL. I first crushed on him back in Breaker High. No, wait. Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark? were the first things I saw him in. Either way, he played a dork. Then he went all 'serious independent actor' and was nominated for an Oscar. He was finally free to be his weird-ass self. Oh, and then he was in The Notebook and suddenly everyone loved him. The point I'm getting to is that I knew he was a semi-musician, but I didn't know he was actually in a band that released a CD back in October. Their name is 'Dead Man's Bones' and they have songs such as "My Body is a Zombie for You" and "Flowers Grow Out of My Grave."

Dead Man's Bones

And here's their video for Dead Hearts. It's different. I love it. Am also slightly disturbed by it. )

I hope everyone is having as good a day as I am. I'm pretty surprised, considering I started my day by getting up early to go to the doctor. I had blood taken and I'm going back in like a week for a sonogram of my abdomen. Hopefully I'll be able to get this all sorted soon.

I got there early and was able to be seen earlier by my doctor, which meant more of my day off to enjoy. It took me a while to figure out how to get home (I had taken a taxi there so I wouldn't be late), but once I figured it out, it was pretty simple. Got home to find that my Toma magazine clippings had arrived as well a survey from Nielsen Ratings.

Then I go online to find that the complete series of Young Hercules has been posted, pictures from the Hugh Laurie & RSL TV Guide photo shoot, and this awesome (and spoilery) bit of casting news for season 4 of Psych.

The only bad thing is that I'm cramping like a mofo. So I think I'll just crawl back into bed and watch Hot Fuzz.

PS I still have 2 invite codes for Dreamwidth, so let me know if you want one :)

I got a text message the other day from a number I didn't recognize. Then I remembered that I had given my number to my 16 year old cousin who it turns out likes The Boosh. Anyway, our conversation:

Her: Calm a llama down!!
Me: Vince? ;)
Her: Yep!
Me: U snapped me out of my jazz trance!
Her: lmao but im old greg!!
Me: Don't kill me. I've got so much to give!
Her: You seen me!! Im a scaly man fish!! Im old greeeeg!!

In other news, I'm attempting to learn Japanese. Right now I'm just using My Japanese Coach for the Nintendo DS. My current level? Toddler. But hey, I was just at Baby last night ;)

I'm almost done rewatching all of Hana Kimi and then I want to start on Honey & Clover and Voice, although I'm going to wait for subs on that last one. Not that I need more shows to fangirl.

I just read some Jack/Daniel fic while listening to 'Big Yellow Taxi' by Counting Crows. It was just like being in high school again ^_^

So, in conclusion, Fuck yeah! Ryan Gosling

PS My icon has nothing to do with anything except the fact that I love it and them (Nowaki/Hiroki from Junjou Romantica) and the other day while on my lunch break at work, I was just sitting outside Quiznos listening to music and smiling to myself thinking about them *g*
