Happy Canada Day!!!!

I'm heading down to Detroit for the weekend to hang out with [ profile] aliasrlm and hopefully [ profile] ageofaquarius. Everyone have a great long weekend!

Also, check out my last entry to download some songs (in a completely legal fashion of course). I also added a few more songs to get it up to 25, you know, like it says in the instructions. Heh.

Weird, eh?

Well that's just shocking. The coffee questions cracked me up... just this morning I got a medium regular and a medium double double for my roommate and I. I didn't realize that was a Canadian thing. I have come to expect the weird looks I get when I eat in American restaurants and ask for vinegar for my fries.

I will now return to my SG1 Season 6 Marathon. I swear I've seen half the cast of Traders this season alone. Canada apparently needs more tv actors.

Hey look, I'm not dead. I've just been living in front of my computer/tv for the past few weeks. I've come to the conclusion that TV is trying to depress me. I have had my heart smashed to pieces, put back together, and then broken again more times than I can count.

I finished Veronica Mars in a marathon eight-episodes-in-one-sitting last week. It would've been a good idea to start watching before 10pm, but I had only planned to watch 2 episodes. Next thing I know, it's 5am and I'd finished the series.

Veronica Mars spoilers ahoy! )

I'm sad that I'm all finished with VM now. I'm very glad that you all talked me into watching it. And extra special thanks and love for [ profile] mspooh for sending me the episodes. You're the best babe.

On to my other tv obsession, SG1. I'm currently about 6 episodes into season 6. I've also been watching season 8 as it airs on Space. When I get home from work tonight I'll have part two of Moebius waiting for me, and I can't wait.

SG1 spoilers seasons 5 through 8 )

I keep meaning to do a music rec update, linking a bunch of songs I'm currently obsessed with. I will do it one of these days, if only so that [ profile] onexbyxone has something to read that isn't about tv shows she hates.
stephdub: (Default)
I was driving along today, listening to Coldplay's new album, wondering who killed Lilly Kane. And who raped Veronica. Veronica Mars has my brain all thinking. I hate that. I've seen the first 8 episodes now. You'll all be very proud of me, because I also managed to get my friend M at work totally hooked too. In fact, she's way worse than I am. I've been giving her 4 episodes a day, and every morning she calls and tells me that she needs more. She's ahead of me now, but I've given up trying to catch her, because I realized that there is only about 5 weeks left for me to get caught up on SG1 before the series 9 premiere. I still have to watch 5, 6, 7 and most of 8. GAH!

The good news is that Future Shop has put them on sale. Seasons 1-5 are only $35. 6 is $40, and 7 is like $63 or something. I bought 5 last week, but for $50. Thankfully they'll do that price match thing within 30 days, so I figure I'll get season 6, and with my refunded $15 it'll only be $25! I also realize this means I will probably end up buying seasons 1-3 at some point. I just can't avoid a sale. But yeah, 5 weeks... and something like 80 episodes. I can do this.

[ profile] mspooh you'll love this - I was at work, talking to M about my Stargate obsession, and our co-worker D overheard and got all excited. "Are you talking about Stargate Atlantis? It's the best show ever!" and then he went on about how Shep and McKay were the best characters in the history of the universe. I thought about asking him if he felt that Shep and McKay shared a deep, undying love, but I figured he'd get all freaked out at the mention on Guy on Guy love. He's one of those guys that thinks 2 girls is totally hot, but 2 guys is disgusting. Men. I so don't get them.

A million years ago [ profile] celli pinged me on that 6 favourite songs thing that was going around. So here goes... and these may become YSI links when I am at home and have access to my computer.

1. Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence. The best song ever in the history of time imho, and you won't be able to change my mind on that. Fantastic beat, gorgeous melody and amazing lyrics. Plus, the sex that is Dave Gahan's voice. He's even managed to sway [ profile] trixalicious to the dark side. And she said that would never happen. Everything else on this list may change from time to time, but this will always be number one.

2. Elbow - George Lassoes The Moon. I love a lot of Elbow songs, but this one always gets me. Really bad. Guy Garvey also has a total sex voice, and he uses so much emotion when he sings. Just beautiful.

3. Coldplay - Spies. Before X&Y, before A Rush Of Blood To The Head, there was Parachutes. I still think this album is amazing, and no matter what stupid things Chris Martin says or does I will never fall out of love with Parachutes. There are so many good songs on this, and it's hard to pick a favourite, but I think Spies edges out Don't Panic by a tiny bit.

4. Longwave - Wake Me When It's Over. This one just gets under my skin. I first heard Longwave playing in a cd store... I asked what it was, the girl said Longwave, and skipped it back to this song. By the time the song was about 30 seconds in, I told her I'd buy the album. It's that good.

5. Interpol - Specialist. The way Interpol uses guitars should be illegal. And that part where the bass comes throbbing in is spectacular.

6. Doves - The Man Who Told Everything. When I first heard this song I knew I had to have the album. I then searched 4 cd stores until I found a copy of Lost Souls which I bought for $30. I don't regret a cent of it. One of my all time favourite albums.

I'm supposed to pass this on to 6 people so (and apologies if you've already done it) [ profile] onexbyxone, [ profile] vilandra_25, [ profile] mnemo_syne, [ profile] roseability_, [ profile] nandamai, and [ profile] sullymel.

I just finished watching Reckoning Part 2. Is it wrong that I find Daniel/RepliCarter really hot?
stephdub: (Default)
You know for about three days I've opened up to this update page and tried to spit something out, but I just haven't. I can't seem to find anything to say. How can it be June? I just don't get it. I swear it feels like March was just last week. But the weather has finally warmed up, and the rain seems to be gone. I went in my parent's pool for a while before work this afternoon, it was gorgeous.

The Stargate Update )

NCIS Twilight Spoilers )

I've been watching Veronica Mars, and I really like it. And from what I've heard from most of you, it only gets better as it goes on. As of right now, I can't imagine why anyone would want Logan and Veronica together, because as best I can tell Logan is one hell of a jerk. Is he going to get nicer at some point?

Back to work I go...
stephdub: (Default)
Thanks to everyone for their Stargate DVD buying input. I decided to go with season 4 for the following reasons: (plus S4 squeeing )

Tonight I'm going to see Doves! I can't wait. Their latest album Some Cities is just brilliant, and they are always super amazing live. Their songs just scream out to be played in a big arena with a bunch of fans singing and clapping along. Mind you, they're playing a crappy venue not a nice arena so never mind that. But they're still great.

Still freaking out over next weeks NCIS and the spoilers... I really hope they don't mess with my babies. I love that cast like no one else, and I am unwilling to lose any of them. If you haven't yet, run to [ profile] b_cavis and read her latest story Dusk. It is beautiful, insanely sad, and so.damn.good. Go, read and love.

I may or may not be drunk right now. (here's a hint, it's not 'may not') I decided that drinking wine after work was a super good idea. Sadly now I just want pizza. I could order some, but I'm too lazy. I'd have to pick up the phone, and dial, and talk to people. Boo to that! Oooh, I have a frozen pizza I could make. That may be an option.

This isn't what I wanted to talk about. Damn you super yummy red wine! My real point was that when I came home from work tonight, there was a cheque from the government waiting for me. YAY! So now I have $75 burning a hole in my pocket... you know what that means! Stargate DVD's here I come! Double YAY!

I'd do a poll thingy, but I can't because I have a free account. So the question is: Which season of SG1 should I buy? I've seen (most) of one, and I'm watching 2 right now. I refuse to get 6 because I love Daniel too much to invest $50 on a season he's not in. Karen is sending me 7 and 8. So your choices are 3, 4 or 5. Which is the best? Which one screams "omgyouhavetohavemerightnow!"

Yeah, I'm off to get drunker. WHEEEEE!
stephdub: (Default)
I've just been really bad with updating. I haven't really had much to say, especially when it comes to fandom... Alias is pretty much sucking, and with the exception of my still crazy love for 24 and NCIS, there hasn't been much else that I've really fallen for this season. Until now... more on that later.

I am looking forward to joining everyone in their total and utter Veronica Mars obsession. I can't get VM where I am in Canada, so I had no way to watch but strictly downloading, and that seemed like too much work. If only I'd known, because it's way more work now trying to catch up. I've been slowly downloading all the more current episodes, but not watching them yet. The lovely [ profile] mspooh has been so kind to hook me up with the earlier episodes. They should arrive next week, and then I'll probably binge out on them in a very scary way. In the meantime, I hope I'm not too spoiled for all the fun when I do start watching.

As for my other obsession? Well if I thought catching up on one season of Veronica Mars was going to be trouble, I have no clue what I was thinking when I fell, and fell hard, for Stargate SG-1, more blatherings here )

The big question here is what I should do about the current episodes. Space is running the second half of Season Eight right now. I'm not sure when Season 9 is going to start up, but I'm guessing it's soon. So should I start watching season eight? I've already been spoiled for quite a few major plotlines, but there are some things that I'm totally in the dark on. If I wait until I've seen all the episodes before I watch season 9, that will be at least eight months from now. Ew. That is just too long. Or will I just be completely lost if I start watching the later eps now? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. As would the fic recs. Did I mention that I'm obsessed? I've already planning a vid... I just need to get some episodes downloaded so I can.

Other than that, life has been pretty boring around here, with the exception of my amazing trip to Cuba. It was so beautiful, and the most wonderful and relaxing time ever. Especially since the weather has been ultra sucky up here since I got back. I'm at work right now, but I'll edit to add some pictures when I get home.
stephdub: (Default)
I did it! It's done, and I love it. Even if I can't see it right now because it's all covered up with bandages. It hurt way less than I expected it to. I didn't even cry. That is amazing, because I cry over freaking everything. But there was no crying, and no fainting (which I'm also prone to) so yay me! My friend B took a bunch of pictures, so I'll post some once I get home from work. And thanks everyone for all your good wishes. I'm so proud of myself over this. It's just not something that I would do. I was afraid I'd chicken out, so I'm so glad that I went through with it. I should mention that it's tiny... just a little music note. The whole thing only took about 15 minutes. But I'm still so happy with it.

I'm going to Vancouver tomorrow. I can't wait, I need a vacation really badly. So off to Vancouver for a friend's wedding, some shopping, and NO FREAKING SNOW. Then back here for a week, and then I'm off again on the 9th to go to Cuba! That will be amazing. Just the beach and some tequila. I'll be set. I'll also be broke, but I feel it will be totally worth it.

Random - you know you're in Canada when - As I was leaving Chapters today, a man held the door open for me. And about 3 people in front of me. And 2 after. It totally reminded me of Due South, only this guy was no where near as hot as Paul Gross is.

Oh my god, I'm getting a tattoo in an hour. And I'm afraid of needles. And I really don't care much for pain either? What was I thinking?

Pictures to follow.

Happy Birthday [ profile] ageofaquarius! I hope you have an amazing day. *hugs* You rock babe. I'm so glad that we've had the chance to meet.

I realized that I never posted my answers to the Lyric Quiz I posted a few weeks ago. My original plan was to link all the songs to You Sent It, but I'm too lazy for that right now. So if you want any of the songs, comment and I'll link them.

Lyric Quiz Answers )

Expect about half the photo survey this afternoon if I get a chance before work, or else tonight. I still have some more pictures I have to take, but I may as well split it up so it won't be quite so image heavy.

Quiz time.

Stolen from [ profile] trixalicious because I never get bored of music surveys:

Step 1: Get your playlist together, put it on random, and play.

Step 2: Pick your favorite lines from the first 20 songs.

Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song the lines come from.

Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

Edited to add: I'm following Trix's idea of putting the mp3's for songs that have been guessed. Download while you can.

A new year, some new Alias snark. It's nice that some things can stay the same.

Alias )

Now that the Alias premiere is over with, bring on 24! I've missed my baby. Did anyone catch The Kief on Letterman last night? He was looking mighty nice. Who am I kidding, he was looking insanely hot and the sex voice made me melt. I'm so bitter that I have to work Sunday night. I should've booked it off.

It just slays me.

In other news The OC broke out Phoenix and The Faint tonight. That show always has the best music, even if the plotlines are INSANELY PREDICTABLE.

Anyone know any good free video editing programs?

I realized the other day that I have the first season of Dead Like Me sitting on my hard drive, just crying out for me to make a video. A George and Mason video, because they are both just the cutest things ever. So I tried to download the trial version of Vegas, which is what I used in college, but the trial version won't let me open mpeg files because Sony sucks.

If anyone has some suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

I hope that all you Americans get out and vote today.

From Natalie Dee:


I felt it was appropriate for so many of us.

In other news, [ profile] mspooh and [ profile] ageofaquarious sent me a package on their recent trip to Vegas. Please just try and picture the look on my face as I opened it up to find a very pink, very sparkly, very big tshirt with Celine Dion's face staring up at me. I laughed for about five minutes straight. The cat came downstairs to see what was so damn funny. That was awesome. You guys rock. *huggles you both* My friend B is convinced that I should wear it out Oktoberfesting on Friday. Personally, I think it's too good for all those strangers to spill beer on it, but hey, maybe Celine would like Oktoberfest.

I watched the last half of Smallville tonight. Did I mention that I haven't seen any episodes from Season 3? Or the season premiere of Season 4 for that matter? Cut for spoilers )

They used an Aqualung song on tonight's Nip/Tuck... which I think was last weeks ep for those watching on FX. But yeah, Aqualung, tres cool. That show has awesome music.
stephdub: (Default)
Thought I should maybe update, since I haven't in weeks. I've moved into my new place, and I love it far more than I though possible. The new roomies are wonderful, and now I have a cat! A big gay fat cat. He is beautiful. He lays on the floor and stretches out saying "love me! Lavish me with attention!" but when you go to touch him half the time he freaks out and runs away "gah, don't touch me!!!" just like a gay man. I love him so.

Since the roomies have real jobs and work 9 to 5ish hours, it is just me and the cat most days. We lay on the couch whilst napping and watching tv. I am totally coming back as a cat in the next life. It's just like my life now, only with less responsibilities. Nice.

I'd like you to all make note of the fact that Interpol's Antics comes out tomorrow. Everyone must run out and buy a copy because it is amazing and wonderful.

I watched the premiere of Gilmore Girls today. I forgot it was on last week and had to download it. Bad Steph! But I enjoyed it, and it seems like everyone else has already talked about it so I'll leave it at that.

Last night I was watching CBS for the sole reason of catching a NCIS preview. I would've settled for Without a Trace, but I really wanted NCIS. So on comes this commercial "Tuesday is premiere night on CBS!" and then they showed clips for the baseball show I can't remember the name of and Judging Amy. That's it. At the end they added this "oh, and NCIS is on at 8 but whatever..." without even a freaking cast photo. Bastards. So then I turned off their crappy tv movie even if it did have Rob from Beggars and Choosers in it (because I lurrrrve him) and went to bed. At 9:30. I was sick, it's my only justification.

I think Rescue Me is going to start airing up here tonight, and due to my Dennis Leary love I will be watching.

First off, I've sent out the first song to all the people who signed up below, so check your inboxes!

Second, I may be losing internet access tomorrow so I won't be around much. I canceled my account since I'm moving in a few weeks, and I guess tomorrow is my billing day. I'm hoping to be all moved into my new place by the 24th so I won't be gone too long.

I came across the first season of the X-Files at the used cd store I frequent. It wasn't actually there, they had to ship it from another store, but later this week I should be the proud owner of all those wonderful first season eps. And for the bargain price of $70. Amazon sells it for about $110 Cdn, so it was a pretty good deal. But dear god those dvd's are expensive. That's way too much for a set.

I have three episodes of Touching Evil on tape, but I just can't seem to find the effort to watch them. I'm not sure if it's because I know it's been canceled, or if it's because I already know all the plotlines from watching the Brit eps. I'm sure I'll get to them at some point, I'm just not sure when.

Stupid CTV ran that new Medical show I can't remember the name of instead of Nip/Tuck on Thursday, those bastards. Now I have to remember to tape N/T on Sunday. I hate when they mess with the scheduling. I really want to see that episode.
