Jules! She owns my heart!

So because I got poor [personal profile] sinjah (and apparently a few other people) into Psych and she requested a picspam, recs set, gifspam (new word!) post. And since she's so nice to me, reading my insanity, gifting me music occasionally, and also cuz I love Lassiter Gus Jules Henry Shawn Psych I decided to do it.

The following is a collection of recs I've already made here, redone, and some new pics, maybe, and a bunch of pretty gifs I got from vtgraphics (check them out, btw, they are awesome).

For a fandom overview of Psych, should you need one (it's a fluffy, cracky crimesolving show with a cranky yet dorky yet hot detective and also a fake psychic, should you need to know) go here. Which is my [community profile] crack_van overview, complete with pictures.

Everything else, check beyond the fake cut.

we don't have balls. i honestly have no response to that. )
You know, this could still be hormones, or just how much I love Liev Schreiber (or more likely, recent events on my street that I'm not going to go into here) but I'm obsessing over the Keppler story arc of Season 7 (?) of CSI. And the Keppler vids, and the Keppler/Catherine vids, even the bad ones, are so making me tear up.

I think it's all three, multiplied by just how good of an actor Liev is.

The only halfway decent love interest she's had. All upright and trying to be honorable, in his serious black suits, so handsome, and Catherine having to work to lighten him up. (Marg's expressions when he was spoiler ) some of the best she's done on the show. How can you not tear up? This is the kind of couple that Kittie and I would immediately "in another life" OTP to make ourselves feel better. Like Hotch and that high class call girl who died holding his hand and Gorman/Vasquez from Aliens...don't judge me).

Or just Keppler. The scene at the end makes me a little sniffly. I wonder if that's George Eads being all sensitive combined with Gary Dourdan/Warrick's manly silent pained look.

The weird thing about forcing yourself (to actually be somewhat disciplined) to write (almost) everyday is that if you take a break from it, you instantly feel reluctant to dive back in, in fact you get pretty consumed by laziness all around. And by you I mean me, of course. :)

Actually, that's not even the weirdest thing. The weirdest thing is how out of control it makes me feel pressing forward without stopping to really edit anything, although I've noticed a general decline in control in my stories for several years now. Starting with the very short, tightly written stories I used to do to the giant, rambling epics I seem to write now, things have gotten a lot looser, and I'm not sure I'm entirely a fan of that. On one hand the characters are important, on the other, they shouldn't be telling me what to do all the time.

(Though perhaps my writing hasn't really changed all that much, but my life has, and the sense of being out of control is just a reflection of that stress. And blah blah, control is an illusion blah blah. In real life it is. In a story I don't know that it should be. But then I've often had the sense in general that my fiction is just...weird...all the way around. Not especially good or bad...just...different. I've had more than one remark that my style--whatever it may be--takes some getting used to. So...where was I going with that? Rambling again...)

But speaking of writing, the urge to keep going is, at the same time, very strong. I want this bitch out of my head and I want it out now, and my pace, faster than usual yes, is still somehow too slow. And at the same time there's this vague sense that I'm writing, if not crap, then not my best, because of how fast I'm going. But if I stop for too long, I'm not going to want to keep going, for I am chubby, lazy monster when I want to be.

And, why yes, this was supposed to fun for me. A fun little project, and in a way, it is. For I was raised Catholic and apparently thrive on anguish. :P In fact, I'm sure a lot of writers fret and flail this much. (Except of course, that they are writing like...art) The fretting and flailing is probably part of the process I just wish I was a little farther along in the process.

(Or should I mention that I have a milestone b-day approaching and am having a general "my life sucks" "I've accomplished nothing" etc etc freak out and that perhaps getting this bitch out of me is connected to that, even though it's hardly the Great American Novel? But honestly, have you ever had people and their histories--and futures--in your head for a long period of time? It's maddening. Something happens and all you can think is, "I wonder what Charlie or Rene would say if he saw that?" grrrr)

So um...spend a whole day reading through Vanity Fair and then have a Cabaret day? Or just mess around on Youtube and at least do notes for another scene?

Dear Obama (you typical shady, lying politician),

Not holding anyone accountable for torture and then patting yourself on the back for ending it is a big bag of hypocritical bullshit. Using the excuse that those who tortured others were acting with the guidance and approval of the Justice Department is another steaming pile of crap. As the Right Honourable Stephen Colbert (and his team of writers) have pointed out, the idea that just following orders makes horrendous acts acceptable has not been allowed since the Nuremburg Trials.

And though many claims about those trials fairness have been made in the following years, one idea has emerged from them and remained over the years. That just following orders does not make it okay. That in a situation like that, *everyone* who allowed it to happen is accountable, but especially those that *gave the orders*.

In other words (even though not once did I ever vote for Bush or his friends) all of America is partly to blame and has to accept that. And if the average person must take part of the blame, than those who were in charge absolutely MUST be held accountable. Otherwise as a government and a country we can make no further claims to right, or to justice.

Anyone wishing to know what the hell I'm talking about: Obama's policy on accountability

Feel free to add any recs to this you want. About anything. I mean, I read most fandoms, and the ones I don't are generally easy to figure out (though obviously I'll miss the in-jokes and references, and anything sci-fi might get complicated). This is in no way all recent fic, or stories for everyone, or even the best-written/made stuff out there. This particular list is just Feel Good Recs, baby.

Nick and Greg and little red ribbon. Smut! The Ribbon

Greg Sanders, Private Dick. Super historically accurate? Not exactly. Do I care? Nope. This series is completely fun and totally hot and just cheers me up sometimes. Why yes, I have read it repeatedly.

LEX LUTHOR IN A PLAID SCHOOLGIRL SKIRT! *ahem* Friends Don't Let Friends Wear Plaid Schoolgirl Skirts

Because Saul Panzer in the Nero Wolfe books is just all kinds of awesome: The Christmas Punch

(And Yuletide, btw. YULETIDE!!!!!! Yuletide *is* Fandom Awesome. I ought to do that again this year).

Pir8fancier's Hate Me/Bite Me Memes story. Harry/Draco. (No, I don't read or especially like Harry Potter. But first of all, grown up, bratty, spoiled Draco is love. And secondly, she took a really stupid and negative internet meme and turned it into porn. I mean love. Yes. That too. Draco was pissed off

A short original, fairy tale-ish fic. The Virgin and the Unicorn

omg, *any* Die Hard 4 Slash if you want hot, kinky porn.

Because I Have Spent My Day Watching Psych CAPSLOCK OF LOVE.

The Epic Tale of Rodney & John: Two Girl Scout Cookies In Love Delicious (pun intended) SGA crackfic.

Slash for the movie "Cursed"...which needed it. But there's no fandom, and no expectation of praise, and the author wrote this bit of perfect anyway.

Yuletide again! The Strange and Not Entirely Ineffective Courting of Jon Stewart by Stephen T. Colbert

Yuletide! "Smoke Signals" slash!!! EEEE!!!!! Thank you, fandom! Telling Tales

A small bit of DS porn from Spuffy. So thanks, Spuffy! What They Needed Ray really is so cute.

More Nick/Greg. The kind of established couple fic that doesn't usually get written. Ruminations on Broken Glass and Bare Feet

Tetchy The OG Simon/Jayne fic!

Also: Dear Fandom, you are awesome for introducing me to boysinskirts. Lipstick Vogue for DS.

And genderfuck! Thanks for that too, Fandom! Gonna Go to Babylon and Get Me Some Whiskey more Due South awesomeness. Maybe I ought to just thank Due South. :)

And thanks for authors like Thamiris too. And all her fic. I'll just link to one. Tied to the Wrist ah Smallville.

(Smallville and SGA, two of the few large fandoms I will read on a semi-regular basis, even if I stopped watching the shows themselves long ago)

Holmes/Watson slash, for existing at all. Sacrilege

Perfect fucking fanvids like this one---> Closer Kirk/Spock set to Nine Inch Nails.

I'm missing a lot. And yet babbling on at the same time. Because Fandom has given me so much. I mean, would I ever have discovered all my kinks without it? Would I have learned to tolerate and/or accept other people's kinks without it? And, though I may still harbor a lot of il will toward a lot of het shippers for their general attitude regarding slash and slashers, I have also seen slashers do some completely awesome things, just proving how stupid all those narrow-minded het shipper types are.

And icons! I forgot all about icons! How many precious icons have I gotten over the years???

*ack* Running out of time here...

Okay so Kittie and I will be the only ones geekily excited to see this video/hear this song.

Oh yeah. Lambada baby.

(They are *still* freaking out about "dirty dancing" at high schools in Marin County right now. Apparently none of their school administrators or parents has ever seen a dance movie from the 1980's)

I think Shawn Spencer is going to have to reference this.

are we gay? no. we're just two guys who got excited and made out.

So I *was* going to talk about last night's CSI, I still could, possibly. But at the moment, I am now too worried about the coming enslavement/destruction of mankind by robots. Heh.

Because this vid has taken over my brain. (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] thefourthvine for pointing it out).

Unnatural Selection - Battlestar Galactica/Terminator: Sarah Connor - Charmax

Also, The Pixies!

I just love smart vids.

Though maybe I ought to recommend something light after that. Like maybe a little chill-out with technology. Everything's Amazing/Nobody's Happy Not a vid, just funny.
Now I don't watch Starsky and Hutch. I mean, I've seen glimpses growing up, and of course the horrible remake movie. But I get the gist. Cop partnerships are gay. (Perhaps I should make that read, closer than a lot of marriages, but gay is quicker). I'm reccing this vid anyway. Mostly just because it's fun. It's got a silly song choice and quick editing, and oh yes, the ending.

The Ending makes this vid totally worth it. Why yes, that is *Ray Kowalski* in a Starsky/Hutch vid. Heeee!

The Real Slim Shady

hahaha Oh God help me! All I want to do now is write more Tony/Tim!!!! I'm supposed to be writing people's Xmas gifts, dammit!!!!!!

But oh I love them!
Halloween is not only about scary good times, but the end of the summer and the light and a welcoming of the dark, a last time to go crazy before the dark takes over, a time to reverse roles, to go hidden, to have fun, to think about death, and the dead, in whatever way you choose to do it.

In the spirit of that, and because I have no social life at the moment, I give you Random Halloween Video Spam.

First...a clip from the original (1963) The Haunting -- a movie that freaks me out to this day. I love it. Low budget and all. A house that was born bad Trust me, just the intro is creepy.

Some musical madness, featuring both Miranda Richardson *and* the Devil...awesome. The Red Shoes

Jack Black and Kyle versus a shiny demon, Round One anyway. Nay, we are but men. ROCK!

I cannot properly express my love for Leslie Hall (owner of Gem sweaters and internet goddess). Nonetheless, just watch her video for "How We Go Out" and you'll understand. You get me hotter than a stick of hot glue Speaking of dress up...

Though if we are talking dress up, I must also include a small bit of Kelly not Shoes.

Slumber Party Massacre!!!!! hahaha

Jack's Lament from the Nightmare Before Christmas. (yay for Oingo Boingo...I mean Danny Elfman). Jack...the Pumpkin King I suppose This Is Halloween is more appropriate. But whatever.

And cuz I have to do it---A One-Eyed One-Horned Flying Purple People Eater

My (current) favorite scene of Young Frankenstein is the scene in which Fredrick orders himself locked in a room with the creature and then immediately wants back out again, only to turn into a charmer/Ultimate Jewish Mother to win over the creature and save himself. ("Hey there, Handsome...") However, this is hard to find on youtube, so yous guys get Super Doooooper!!

For more random: The Flight of the Conchords, Bowie's In Space, Live. The live version is better than the version from the episode, imo. This Bowie to Bowie, I read you loud and clear, man

And then finally, also for the random. Cary Grant, he just went GAY all of the sudden. (Just ask Randolph Scott). You can hear what you want to hear I suppose something from Arsenic and Old Lace would also have been more fitting.
Last day of the month and I'm torn between showing "Maurice"-Alec climbs through window awesomeness and this---

Guess which one I went with? :)

God I love this movie. The Mama Cass alone!

From "It's Different For Girls" starring Rupert Graves (love!!!)

Such a cute movie. I totally recommend it.
Some amazing authors and artists are offering up their mad skillz on this community to raise money to help fight the dickwads currently trying to fuck up gay marriage in California. As you may know, San Francisco just allowed gay marriage (yays! because it's equal rights, even if marriage seems a strange concept to me) and now some uptight probably closeted and extremely repressed assholes are trying to strike that down.

Time to fight back in the best way possible...with lots and lots of ghei secks intelligently and artistically.

I'd offer up my services, but who'd bid on me? More likely I will bid on someone else and make them obey my every kinky wish. In fiction form, of course. Muahahahaha!!!!!!

Live Long and Marry Go here. Rispa commands it.

And then, continuing with gay pride vids of awesomeness....Buddy Cole.
