ZQ-no disappointment

Zachary Quinto Birthday Picspam

I'm making good on the promise I made earlier in a comment to a picspam entry to post my own picspam to this GQMF.  Since he seems to be aging like a fine wine, I'm sipping on some red.  And it's not a box wine either!  Nothing is too good for ZQ!

Moar pics of this GQMF.Collapse )

Devilish - Danny Elfman

Happy Birthday, Danny Elfman!

For some reason, around this time last year I started watching Oingo Boingo videos on YouTube.  I grew up in the 80's, so I of course had heard of Oingo Boingo and saw at least the "Weird Science" video on MTV.  I vaguely remembered "Hey," a song they put out during the height of grunge when I was in high school.  I also knew that Danny Elfman had done some film scores.  That was pretty much the extent of my knowledge.  Then I watched the videos.

The beginnings of an obsession.Collapse )

Accomplished (Amelie)


A few months ago, probably around Christmastime, my mom gave me her old sewing machine.  I had it in my head that I would embark upon some sort of sewing project, but as I had nothing ready to go (and no empty desk to hold the machine), it stayed in the garage.  It survived the move and has been sitting on the floor of my closet ever since.

Last month I went to Joann's and bought the two simplest (and cheapest) shirt patterns I could find and some fabric.  Into the hall drawer they went to stew.  Meanwhile, Mom had made me spiffy curtains for my kitchen and she gave me back the extra fabric.  I decided to use the fabric to make velcro ties.  Shouldn't be too hard, right?  Sew a line, turn the tube inside out, fold over the ends, tack on some velcro, and voila. 

Famous last words, huh?Collapse )

This was on Saturday, May 16, 2009, in which I run errands, go shopping, and do handy things around the house.

 I hope you enjoyed my day!  I'll be cross-posting this on adayinmylife .  It's an awesome community, you should check it out.

ZQ-insert me here

Weekend Update.

Saw Angels and Demons on Friday with Marv.  It was OK.  Some of the more ridiculous elements were left out, specifically Langdon jumping out of the helicopter using only a piece of plastic window as a parachute.  Marv was bummed about that.  One of the previews was for a Katherine Heigl/Gerard Butler rom-com crapfest.  The opening shot I swear was of the Tower Bridge in Sacramento.  Kind of random.

Saturday was so busy.  I documented the day for a future A Day In My Life post.  I'll be sure and crosspost it here.

The only thing I did on Sunday was bake a cake for my mom.  All.  Day.  Seriously, I started about noon and finally put the finished cake in the fridge around 8pm.  I made the whole thing from scratch - cake, meringue, buttercream, sugar syrup, ganache, chocolate letters.  I tasted little bits throughout the day.  I can't wait to taste the whole thing!  I'll probably go straight into a diabetic coma.

I bought the audiobook of Star Trek on Saturday...just because it was read by my current obsession, Zachary Quinto.  I'm only partway through Disc 3 (of 7), but he's doing a really good job with the reading.  I listened to it while starting the cake.

You know, that one song...

For the longest time I've been trying to figure out the title of a Tool song.  All I could remember was the line, "If you choose to pull the trigger."  Last night MidBro was putting some music on iTunes and updating his iPod.  I scrolled through his music library and checked it against a website of Tool lyrics.  Nothing.  Finally I had a startling idea.

What if it wasn't a Tool song at all?  What if I was thrown off by the lead singer and it was really A Perfect Circle?

A quick search of Google and I had it.  "Outsider" by A Perfect Circle.  A similar thing happened not too long ago on Facebook.  Back in my Humboldt days I discovered a video of Pikachu that had been dubbed with a song.  Again, I only had one line in my head.  I spent the last several weeks inputting all permutations into Google that I could.  Through Facebook I asked Gabeen for help.  Within hours I had the name of the song and a link to the video.

The Oscars

Wow, the Oscars were a lot better than they have been in previous years. Dare I say it? That they were the best Oscars...ever? Hugh Jackman can host them anytime he wants. What a brilliant choice! There were so many things that felt right about this broadcast. I loved Ben Stiller as Joaquin Phoenix. The presentation of the acting awards was nice, but the Best Actor presentation was a little off. Heath Ledger's family accepting his award was touching. Seth Rogen and James Franco's bit was hilarious. By far my favorite part was when Kunio Kato accepted the award for Best Animated Short. "Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto."

Devilish - Danny Elfman


So I should be sleeping right now.  M will be picking me up in about 9 hours for our fun weekend of wine.  But what am I doing?  Wasting time on the internet and watching The Dark Knight.  Well, listening to it mostly.  I really only look up when the Joker's on.  (He's always been one of my favorite characters.)  I should have been finishing up the PowerPoint slides so I could email them to my group.  I think I have enough done right now.  Screw it.  I'll send them as is.  I can always change and add things later.  Aaagghh, my morning is going to be so rushed.  I've got to get this laptop back to the library and get back home by 10.  I've still got to pack.  Crapsticks.  but I am so excited!!

Ooh, it's almost the jailhouse interrogation scene.  Gotta go.
