Couple of things:
1.] Over at oldfriends
, your fabulous local Erik/Charles X-Men community (co-modded by yours truly) we are having a banner-making contest!! So if you are one of those fantastic graphic-design people (unlike myself) and you love you some Erik and Charles (much like myself) you should come on over and make a banner! The winning banner will be proudly displayed at the top of the oldfriends
comm, and obviously you'll have credit given on our profile page. Full rules and regulations can be found here
. Entries due by July 1st, so get to it!
: HOW AM I STILL IN THIS? O____o :DDDD WOW. WOW. Completely and utterly thought I was gone this week. Compared to the other fics, I felt like mine stuck out like a sore thumb because of how fucking SHIT it was compared to the ridiculous writing prowess of my fellow competitors. Everyone just freaking stepped up their game this round to an entirely different level, leaving me staring up at them like a short little baby sister thinking "How the hell did they get all the way up there?"
But somehow I'm still in it! I'm going to really, really, REALLY give it my A game this round. I'm determined to make it into the top 10 now, and I know that if the next fic I submit isn't the best thing I've ever written, I'm out. Because frankly, the ladies left in it can write circles around me on a bad
day. UNGK. I'm so screwed. But I'm going to try so freaking hard this time. The prompt is kind of meh, and I can see what the obvious 2-3 choices are to write about. I don't know if I should just go with that, or try to be super different, or if that'll screw me over, too...
Who knows. Anyway.
3.] Wow. Super 8
was such a fucking phenomenal movie. Like, a real
cinematic, movie maker's movie. It basically felt like Abrams' extended love-letter to Spielberg, done just as well and beautifully and brilliantly as Spielberg's old stuff, like ET and Close Encounters. Just gorgeous. Abrams basically did everything right that you can do right with in a movie. I am really, genuinely happy
coming out of the movie theater, because I just saw such a good movie
. ( I suck Abrams' dick for four paragraphs )
So, a now revised Favorite Directors List:
1.] Stanley Kubrick
2.] Darren Arronofsky
3.] Quentin Tarantino
4.] Steven Spielberg
5.] Christopher Nolan
6.] J.J. Abrams
7.] Kevin Smith
^ Do you see that, Abrams? You've moved ahead of Kevin Smith! And depending on how terrible or wonderful DKR is, you could pull ahead of Nolan! So get working on Star Trek whatever-the-fuck-number, and we'll see.
