I forgot how awkward I am in new social situations. I went to a party at a college friend's house Friday and I was the only one from our group that showed up. Hello, I don't know how to interact with human beings. It went fine, but my friend told me later that she thought it was hilarious that I wasn't my usual all over the place funny. I was quiet and kept to myself and didn't really talk much. It's all the same people in my classes now that we're in the last year, so it's been a while since I've been around a large group of new people.

Last night I went to a bonfire with one of my best friends and had the freaking best time. It was off the wall fun. I can't really talk about what we did because the police got involved, but holy crap that was fun. There's been a guy pretty much stalking my friend, so we fucked with his life hardcore and I don't feel bad about it at all because he deserved it as far as everyone is concerned.

This morning I woke up to a sign on my front door saying that a water pipe got messed up last night and we have to boil our water before using it. Um... I came home and drank 2 glasses of water at 4am, then made and drank a single serving packet of tea... Yeah, I would have liked earlier notice. Some guy down the street was building an additional garage and dug in the wrong place, which broke some pipes that they had to replace, leaving a chance for water contamination. Hopefully I'm insanely tired and not sick from something. I doubt there's anything wrong with the water.

I've been boiling bunches of water today, which is a pain. Most of it has gone down the street to a sweet elderly woman. Then I said screw it and bought a few cases of bottled water. I'm going to my friend's house to take a shower later too. My family went on vacation, so I'm on my own because I have school and work next week. So I'm at home contributing to the resistance of germs by using Purell.

A few friends and I went out the other night not realizing that the holiday would effect bars. It was so empty and boring for the first half hour because there were 10 people in the whole place that I played I Spy with a guy down the bar. The owner felt bad, so he gave out free drinks and if it was boring after that, I didn't care or notice.

I made cupcakes today, which is a major thing for me. The first time I decided to make cupcakes I stood in the baking isle of the grocery store looking for cupcake mix for ten minutes. I ended up asking a stock boy where it was. Needless to say, he looked at me like I was made out of stupidity and said cupcakes are made from cake mix. So I've come a long way from that to making cupcake so good you'll suck dick.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] balistik94's Awakening (The Maxtrix Trilogy) - I love the sense of beat and editing. There's a strong stylization to the effects and use of them.
[livejournal.com profile] balistik94's Exterminating Son (Blade Trilogy) - I'm a little bit in viddinglove with [livejournal.com profile] balistik94. There's an amazing ability to get a feel for the music and the source with the pacing, editing, and just plain coolness inherent in the vid. It has some very cool musical edits.

[livejournal.com profile] humansrsuperior's end. (Doctor Who) - Interesting concept that ties everything together and it fits perfectly. The effects are soft and organic. A whole mood is created with the music, clip choice, visuals, and audio work.

[livejournal.com profile] jagwriter78 and [livejournal.com profile] rhoboat's Anything the Doctor Can Do... (Doctor Who) - EHehehhe, I still have a huge doofy smile on my face from watching this vid.

[livejournal.com profile] ladymajavader's Powrót (The Return) (Multi) - I think everyone will see something a little different when they watch this vid, but it will be beautiful.

[livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye's Promises, Promises (Torchwood and Doctor Who) - Excellent jumpcuts that really create a taped together atmosphere. It's like the pieces of Ianto put back together with some of them covered by Jack.

[livejournal.com profile] thedothatgirl's Venus in Furs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - A disturbingly hot vid with great song choice, concept, music matching, structure, and black and white.

I broke one of my resolutions on January 4th. I wasn't going to "be all up in celebrity gossip", but com'on. Britney Spears was taken to the hospital for a mental evaulation. How can I not "be all up in" that?

I almost, almost got to see a real hardcore bar fight last night after the game. One of the guys was two seconds from doing one of those hard chest pokes to the other guy, but his brother and wife settled him down. In hindsight it was stupid to go get drinks when the game was on. Amanda (Noel Fielding to my Russell Brand) and I met up with Marcus and Nikki at the smallest bar I've ever been in, The Joyful Mug.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] astartexx's Take Me Home (Deadwood) - Harsh song and recolor that suits Alma completely with the melodic editing and fades.

[livejournal.com profile] raspberry_splat, [livejournal.com profile] humansrsuperior, and [livejournal.com profile] leviathan101's Winter in My Heart (Doctor Who) - Perfectly alligned layers and effects that make the vid feel ghostlike.

[livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain's Growing Up (Supernatural) - It's a giant ball of Supernatural awesomeness with motion, movement, editing, and pacing to die for.

Since a few people have asked for it, I'll post a link to my the girl or the weapon? edit of Michael Andrews' score here as well.

My friends and I were out Friday at the lamest bar known to man. It was a friend of a friends' birthday, so we took her out. Of course my stupid self didn't know her dad was the mayor of my town. I am made of epic fail. She's fun, but I wish I'd known before. That way I wouldn't have done half the things I did. It was her first time in a club so we took her to a tame one. No gay bars. :)

My grandparents are on vacation again, which means I'm cooking Thanksgiving Slapsgiving dinner for the family... If you don't hear from me it's because I burned my house down. Seriously. I didn't know it took days to defrost a turkey and I'm thinking about taking my mini-blow torch to it.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] astartexx's Jesus Christ [alt: Wood and Nails] (Supernatural) - Every choice made by the vidder feels right from the black and white to the editing choices to the clip choice to the framing to the use of the lyrics to everything. It makes my heart squeeze tight. After this vid I think I need a hug as much as Dean does.

[livejournal.com profile] butterfly's Digging the Heroine (Heights) - It's understated, like the movie itself. The vid weaves come of the threads from the movie together.

gwyneth and jo's I Remember (Charlie Jade) - Striking and stark visuals with a harsh mood. Don't let lack of fandom knowledge keep you away.

Eunice's And She Was (Doctor Who) - This is the Rose I remember and love.
Eunice's Don't Touch That Dial (Doctor Who) - This is my Martha.

Jessie's The River (Angel/Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Smart use of the lyrics and quick editing with the drumbeats.

[livejournal.com profile] kazbaby's Eurydiceverse (Stargate: SG-1) - A layered and moody vid with so much under the surface.

kitty's On Top (Supernatural) - Great use of outtakes and other footage to create a cute and vaguely homicidal vid with a heart of gold.

Speranza's Lifetime Piling Up (Stargate: Atlantis) - Nice jump cutting, witty use of the lyrics, overlays, and creation of mood. It's adorable and endearing.

Amanda, some of her friends, and I went to the Carnival of Terror and it sucked big. We had to walk forever to get to the different parts and they were lame anyways. Between one of the set ups there were guys with chainless chainsaws. One of them ran it over the backs of my legs when I went by and chased me, so I started freaking out (because they aren't allowed to touch the people) screaming "you can't touch me, you cock!" To which he replied, "you know you like it."

My brain feels like bavarian jello. I simply cannot retain anything else. I have reached my limit for this semester. I'm run down to the point where I can't get concerned about things. I was so worried for my Assistive Technology midterm, but I was blaise about my SensoryMotor one. I did well on both. For so long this semester I've been overwhelmed and I think I've finally shut down and can't take anymore in.

VID RECS:
[livejournal.com profile] _becca84_'s C'mon, C'mon (Chuck) - Well handled music and action with driving energy in the editing.
[livejournal.com profile] charmax's deus ibi est (Supernatural) - Perfectly odd song choice, cool titles, layering, movement, use of stillness and objects, transitioning, and paralleling.
[livejournal.com profile] charmax's Respectable (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) - Great song, pacing, lyrics, music, and use of linear storytelling.
dayln's Lay Me Down to Sleep (Battlestar Galactica) - Extremely pretty effects, layers, coloring,
di's Windmill, Windmill (House) - Way cool color, effects, pacing, clip choice, and editing that comes together in a sea of awesomeness.
[livejournal.com profile] greensilver's Ohh (Dante's Cove) - Makes bad tv look good.
[livejournal.com profile] jescaflowne's Another Sunday (Stargate: Atlantis) - Crazy fun that's this side of awesome.
[livejournal.com profile] sol_se's Halloween (Heroes) - I love this flipping vid for the editing and subtle effects.
[livejournal.com profile] thandie's Lepcis Magna (Supernatural) - Editing and pacing melded perfectly to the music.

I went shopping with Amanda and I bought my soulmate shoes. Seriously. I heard them calling from the box: This is why'am hot / This is why'am hot / This is why / This is why (Uh) / This is why'am hot (Uh) How could I not have these shoes? )

On the fanart side of things, I tinkered with the season 2 Heroes promo...


I still have far too much time in which I can't do anything I need to get done, I've done two more art pieces:

Saya - Blood: The Last Vampire



Sylar Explosion

I had my last final today, which was for civilization and was the only one I was truly worried about. I'm not sure how I did to be honest, which freaks me out. I studied and was fully prepared, but it's the kind of class where I'll be worried until I have my grades in my hand.

Went to Bounce and Union Station with Amanda and Marcus again. It was fun after all the drama, but it will be awhile before I'm ready to go out again.

I still can't believe my finals are over and I can relax. I start my student teaching the 24th, so I don't actually get a lot of time off before I go back to class.

My grandparents are on vacation, so it's me and Lib right now.

Zachary Quinto being a hot thing

Spring Break was great, except for the 8 papers obviously.

Sadly, Queer as Folk and the l word have ruined gay clubs for me. Amanda, some people she works with, and I went to Union Station and Bounce in Lakewood Cleveland. I was expecting a much tamer and less pretty version of Babylon or something. I had lots of fun, but it was exactly like every other club I’ve been to, minus the drag kings and queens. Honestly, I think I’ve seen more grinding on the dance floor of straight clubs.

I still have 1.25 papers to write. Poop. But at least I have my taxes done now.

My dearest flist, I have been ignoring you, but I still ♥ you.
