The Lost season finale was on tonight, so I saw very very little of American Idol. They unfortunately did a very good job of synching their commercial breaks, but I did catch the actual results.

If you think we share some common interests and you'd like to friend me, just leave a comment here. I don't add everybody, but if I think we have a bit in common, I most likely will. :) And, please, do comment (or PM) before friending me. It helps to know who you are and where you know me from. Less creepy that way, lol. If you're only interested in my graphics though, feel free to friend my graphics community @ LJ, the_holodeck . :)

Total intake of breath as I just saw Ben Browder's name on the guest list for Dragon*Con (which I've been checking every day... hoping that he'd be added). I want to go SO BAD!! I've been seriously thinking about going anyway, especially since I saw Claudia Black and Michael Shanks (not to mention all of the other wonderful people, I could go on and on) added to the guest list... but this just... geez... I need to go. The only problem (other than the fact that I have no money, heh) is I have no idea of where to stay. All of the host and overflow hotels are full, although at this point I'm pretty much willing to sleep in a car, lol.
I've never been to Dragon*Con before... I've been a bit worried about it because it's so big though. Anybody have anything good/bad to say about it?
I watched Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars last night and, zomg, EPIC! Loved it.
( spoilery thoughts under here )
I can't believe it's over. How they could cancel that show with all of the dren that's still on the air is beyond me. I know there's been talk about webisodes for a couple of years now. I hope they eventually do that, 'cause I need more.
I re-watched 2 first season episodes today (Exodus From Genesis for farscaperewatch and DNA Mad Scientist, just because) and it was funny because for a moment I thought, Gee... it seems like I just saw these and then I realized, Oh... I did. Watching all 88 episodes plus the 3hr mini-series in 3 weeks, I felt a little bit crazy, lol, but I just saw a convention clip from Claudia Black's panel at a past Dragon*Con on youtube and somebody there said that they watched the whole thing in 2 weeks. Nice to know there's somebody more insane than I am. :)
And I realized yesterday that I'd been properly brainwashed when the very first thing out of my mouth after I woke up (when I dropped something on the floor) was, unintentionally, "Frell!"
I'm 30 episodes and 1 week into my Farscape addiction (and I finally made an icon for it *points*). I'll probably be done with the series in less than 2 weeks if I continue at this pace... which I believe would definitely be the fastest I've ever consumed an entire show, lol. So far my favorite episodes are: Till The Blood Runs Clear, The Flax, A Human Reaction, Crackers Don't Matter, and The Way We Weren't.
John and Aeryn seem to have no concept of personal space and I love them for it. This, of course, leads me to another mini picspam, because they're just too pretty.
So I'm totally and completely sucked into Farscape now. I'm about halfway through Season 1 (just saw "The Flax", zomg ♥) and I absolutely cannot get enough of it, especially John/Aeryn. I went looking for pics today so I could make icons and my jaw dropped at the promo pics I saw... You've got to be kidding me, an absolute shippers dream! And I know I'm really late to the game and anybody who cares has probably already seen them... but I'm a newbie and excited so I'm doing a mini picspam anyway.
I got Martina McBride's new album (Shine) tonight and it's already on it's 4th time around (which means I really like it), lol. So far, my favorite songs are Wrong Baby Wrong Baby Wrong, Sunny Side Up, Walk Away, What Do I Have To Do, Don't Cost A Dime, Ride, You're Not Leaving Me, and Lies. Shh, I know I just named like 3/4 of the songs. I guess if I would have to pick one favorite it would be Wrong Baby Wrong Baby Wrong.
But yeah, ♥.
Had an amusing moment tonight where I tried to explain to my mother that when Randy Jackson said somebody's performance on AI was "dope", that it was actually a good thing. As far as tonight's ep goes, loved Danny's peformance (as always). I also think that Anoop did a really good job and while I thought Adam's version of "Ring of Fire" was really... odd, he was in good voice. Loved Randy Travis as the mentor, he's one of my favs.
I tried to delete my pic on twitter today because I realized that the small thumbnail sized version might look like Elizabeth is shooting a bird (which wasn't really what I was going for, lol)... and I haven't been able to upload a new one since. I went into the help section and realized that at least it's not just me and other people are having the same problem too. I hope they fix it soon, as I'm currently being represented by an 'x'.
Been watching SG-1 again lately, because I was going through withdrawals. In the past couple of days I've re-watched Children of the Gods, The Fifth Race, Holiday, Window of Opportunity, and The First Ones. Evidently I needed a Jack and Daniel fix.
And if any of you are the one(s) who nominated me for the Stargate Fan Awards, thank you!! Totally wasn't expecting that.
OK, first of all... I'm having really mixed feelings about tonight's American Idol, mostly about the people they've chosen for the Wildcard.

And, jumping topics, Lost is driving me crazy! I just wonder if we're ever going to know what the hell is going on. I think my worst fear with it is that it'll eventually get cancelled, like in between seasons, before they get to explain everything and we'll all just be like... "Wha?"
But... zomg, I so SQUEED tonight!

And I watched a DVD of comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham last night that a friend lent us. I'd heard of him before but wasn't really too interested to check him out because I find the whole ventriloquist thing kind of creepy... but my sister had seen him live down here not too long ago and said he was pretty funny... and ya know what, he is! I really needed a good laugh last night and he provided it. Peanut and Jose Jalapeno FTW!

So we're down to the final 36 of American Idol and finally get to vote. This is when the show starts to get interesting for me... I hate the beginning auditions, because of all of the people goofing off. The first group of 12 was up last night (a 2 hour episode with a freakin' commerical in between each contestant *sigh*) and I'll put my thoughts under a cut.

A few days ago I checked out one of the communites that are currently being spotlighted, thefulcrum, and saw a layout I liked. Since it's been so long since I've changed my layout, I decided to try it today. I made a simple header to go along with it... not sure if it's one that'll stick or not. But yeah, I'm new and shiny now.
