Everyone's seen the picture of Jason Momoa's Aquaman that just came out, right? No?

GURL, TREAT YOURSELF.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

Ugggghhh, I can't go on about this enough. I thought Momoa was inspired casting when I first heard of it, but actually seeing it I am just ;ahdlfhas;kdlfja. LOOK AT HIM. LOOK AT THOSE TATTOOS.

Also, credit to Snyder where credit is due. Aquaman is as big a deal in his universe as any of the Avengers are in Marvel. And Snyder took an A-list superhero who is blond and white and reimagined him as Polynesian. He gave us a Polynesian superhero, THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.

I'm a bit wary of investing myself emotionally in the upcoming DC film franchise, since Man Of Steel was such a disappointment, but I am SO EXCITED to see Momoa's Aquaman. I AM MORE EXCITED TO SEE AQUAMAN THAN I AM TO SEE BATMAN, WHO AM I, WHAT REALITY IS THIS. (Between being excited about Aquaman and being excited about the Penguin, DC on-screen properties have me so confused about life right now.)

Also, give me all of the fanart of Emilia Clarke as badass Sea-Khaleesi Mera. I need this so bad. And give me all the fanfic of Jason Momoa!Aquaman, and quickly, before movie canon ruins everything.

...Actually, I may have that last bit covered. I've already done the groundwork for an origin story based on Aquaman's Silver Age continuity and Momoa's own half-Hawaiian background and also Hawaiian mythology and history. I'm about to go to the field for the weekend, so I very well may come back with a completed story.

JASON MOMOA, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME.
zolac_no_miko: (TARDIS)
GUYS. GUYS.

THE MOST RECENT EPISODE OF DOCTOR WHO.

I CAN'T BELIEVE I WAS RIGHT ABOUT MISSY.

I REALLY DIDN'T THINK THEY'D ACTUALLY GO THERE.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER.
zolac_no_miko: (I like this icon alot.)
Real quick, two things I need to flail about with fannish enthusiasm.

One: I've already flailed about this on [livejournal.com profile] we_love_dick, but I really can't enjoy this in enough places, honestly. Some of you may be aware of my ongoing campaign, No Really, Someone Needs To Cast Matt Bomer As Live-Action Nightwing Already? Well, [livejournal.com profile] regonym brought this to my attention today: apparently, MATT BOMER REALLY REALLY AGREES.

♥♥♥

...Whyyyyyyyyyy isn't this real life yet? T_T

Two: I WATCHED PUNCTURE I REALLY LIKED IT YOU SHOULD ALL WATCH PUNCTURE I NEED SOMEONE TO FLAIL AT.

Okay so I bought this movie for like 49¢, I'd never heard of it, it got really mixed reviews, I wasn't expecting much, but CHRIS EVANS, so I figured it was worth some pocket change. It's based on a true story; Chris Evans plays Mike Weiss, a bearded, tattooed, often-shirtless, drug-addict, fashion-impaired, asshole, train wreck, idiot-savant small-time lawyer. He and his partner take up the case of a nurse who got an infection accidentally poking herself with a needle, and they get embroiled in this whole David-and-Goliath thing with scary powerful lawyers and government and medical supply company conspiracy. The story was excellent.

Chris Evans' performance KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE FREAKING PARK.

I fell instantly and madly in love with Mike. That asshole. He is like a Mike Ross who didn't end up under Harvey Specter's protective wing. He is like Tony Stark if he weren't rich and if he were a genius lawyer instead of a genius engineer. In the pantheon of Adorable Fuckheads he is the adorablest fuckhead since Harry Lockhart. HE IS SUCH AN ASSHOLE and he's so smart and so fucked up and sad and UGH I FUCKING LOVE HIM I CAN'T EVEN TELL YOU.

I must warn that the movie features VERY HEAVY DRUG USE, like, pills, smoking, snorting, needles, LOTS AND LOTS OF ALL OF THE ABOVE. But you should see it. Because Mike Weiss IS AMAZING and I just. I need someone to watch this movie so I have someone to love him with me and I have someone to flail at, there is so much flailing I want to do but SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS.

DO RECOMMEND, especially if you are already a Chris Evans fan. If you aren't, you will become one. Here have some incentive.


HE HAS A BEARD. AND MANPAIN.


JUST LOOK AT THIS ASSHOLE. As far as I can tell he really hates wearing shirts. The ones he does wear are VERY BRIGHT and clash with his also VERY BRIGHT ties. Also he is covered in tattoos, my favorite is the one that trails up his spine. ♥

...WATCH IT WATCH IT WATCH IT PLEEEEEEAAAASE.
zolac_no_miko: (Neal Caffrey)
SHOOOOOOOOOOWWW I MISSED YOU SHOOOOOOOOOWW~!!

Spoilers~! )
zolac_no_miko: (TARDIS)
So [livejournal.com profile] drownedcities directed me to this: I Am the Doctor dubstep remix. IT IS SO AWESOME YOU GUYS. I CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT. ALL DAY LISTENING TO IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

Also I'm fairly sure that this track proves conclusively that the TARDIS invented dubstep. AWH YEAH DJ TARDIS, DROPPING MAD BEATS ALL ACROSS THE KNOWN UNIVERSE.
zolac_no_miko: (*shrug*)
Okay so today I went to see The Amazing Spiderman and omg it was fabulous, it was so fucking charming, augh I loved it so so much. Mostly AUGH I LOVE ANDREW GARFIELD SO SO MUCH. TT_TT

I mean there's this thing about me and Spidey, okay, we go way back, he has always been and always will be my favorite superhero after Batman, and also I have had a crush on him since like before I even had hormones I think. AND I AM EVEN MORE IN LOVE WITH HIM NOW. I seriously need to see the movie again just so I can gaze at him in adoration. ♥_♥ a;sdklhgalkshdflajkshdfal;s it's just, okay, I have types that I am weak to, one of them being guys that are simultaneously adorkably fail and BADASS, and Garfield's Peter Parker (and Peter Parker in general, I guess) falls squarely into this type. I just– SO AWKWARD, but not in a horribly painful, oh-god-kill-me-now, Tobey McGuire-in-Spiderman 3 kind of awkward, awkward in an OH GOD I WANT TO RUFFLE HIS HAIR AND TAKE HIM HOME WITH ME AND CUDDLE HIM AND FEED HIM COOKIES kind of adorable way. I want to do all of those things and then have HOT HOT SEX with him, because as I said, adorkable and BADASS ohemgeeeeee he's so sexy, Gwen Stacey, girl, I totally feel you, we are both in so much trouble omg. ...Seriously it's like magic, he's awkwardly adorably unbelievably fail one moment and then the next moment BAM, MEGA PIMP, like that scene on the balcony, how does he do it?!

And I kind of loved all of the almost-but-not-quite-kissing that was somehow even sexier than actual kissing, how is that possible??

Other things:

-I was amused by the remix of Uncle Ben's famous line.

-I really should be used to this by now, I mean, it's a comic book movie for Zolac's sake but OH GOD I feel like the fail!science (including computer science) was more painful than usual. T_T

-BEST. STAN LEE CAMEO. EVER. ...OF ALL TIME.

-There were a lot of kids in the theater which I actually kinda liked, because a) they're all so noisy you don't really feel guilty for making noise, and b) they have the most entertaining and honest reactions to things, it's really refreshing. (After subway train scene, Random Kid: "THAT WAS THE BEST SCENE IN THE WHOLE MOVIE." XDDDD)

So yeah anyway the whole movie was serious in all the right places and funny and adorable in all the right places and I heart crane operators and cops and I am in love with Andrew Garfield ohmigod I will need to go see that movie again next weekend maybe.

...In other news Ben Wishaw as Richard II is Sassy Gay King Jesus, I am in love with Ovid, and Teen Wolf is dumb and adorable and totally charming, and kinda like watching Spiderman AGAIN only maybe slightly watered-down.
zolac_no_miko: (trust me i'm the Doctor)
OH MY GOD YOU GUYS, EVERYONE READ THIS RIGHT NOW: toomuchplor's Steinway!verse. It's Inception fandom, primarily Eames/Arthur, "The alternate universe where Arthur's a pianist and Eames is a lyric baritone and their love is so lieder, omg."

I cannot even say enough about this series. The scale of this thing is MASSIVE, which is just fine, because you never want it to end. I'm not even halfway through the stories yet, but I just had to take a break and come yell at you guys and tell you HOW FREAKING AMAZING IT IS AND HOW YOUR LIFE IS MISSING SOMETHING IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN INTRODUCED. It is, just, stunningly gorgeous, beautifully written, I just can't even. I'm pretty sure I was planning on reccing this anyway when I got to the end of the series but "Du bist die Ruh" trufax broke me, I came this close to sobbing all over my kitchen table, which for me is the truest mark of good writing, and I just had to come and tell you all about it RIGHT AWAY. ...Not all of them are sad, okay, but this story, oh god. TT_TT

READ THIS READ THIS READ THIS. I don't care if you're not in Inception fandom, this series stands really well on its own, although of course it adds something to the reading if you've seen the film, there's all these tiny little nods to the canon that are just delightfully well-placed. And if you're a music geek, rejoice! Every story comes with clips to the music featured therein. I am not really a music geek, at least not with Music as a high art form, you know, I will geek out about The Decemberists forever but I know balls about Schubert. But Plor writes about the music with such poetry that you get all wrapped up in it regardless.

...Seriously, though, I am at a loss for words sufficient to the task of conveying how amazing this series is, have some keyboard smash, LKAHJSKDGH;KASHOUAHG;H[OISFMWBNPHAGJAJSGHAIPUFEHAIFSDJKSTFF, there, I think that about covers it, JUST GO READ THIS SERIES ALREADY OH MY GOD.
zolac_no_miko: (guns in paradise)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! )

...IS IT NEXT SEASON YET?!
zolac_no_miko: (Liberty/Justice)
Guys, I realize this is probably old news to, like, EVERYONE, but I live under a rock, okay, it's not my fault the rainforest doesn't come with television or convenient internet, and in case anyone else missed it, HAVE SOME FABULOUS BARACK O-SPAM.

First, let May 9, 2012 always be remembered as the day U.S. President Barack Obama said this on national news: "It is important for me personally to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married."

TT_TT BARACK BB I'M SO PROUD OF YOU~!

Have video!
[Error: unknown template video]

And for serious my favorite Hawaiian president has been pulling out the stops recently in an explosion of awesome and rainbows and fabulousness. To whit:

"It's Raining Men"
[Error: unknown template video]

"Barack Obama Slow Jams the News" (link is to video on Huffington Post)

...ILU BARACK OBAMA MY FOREVER PRESIDENT. ♥♥

Also in awesome queer news, punk rock singer Tom Gabel comes out as transgender to Rolling Stone.

GUYS, GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING, THINGS ARE CHANGING FOR THE BETTER, GO GO LOOK AT THEM GO~.
zolac_no_miko: (Steve and Danny)
So now that I have time to do Other Things*, I'm like... oh yeah, television, that doesn't stop happening when I ignore it for like a month and a half.

Finally got around to watching H50 2.20 and ohmigod MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAX~!!! WAY TO STEP UP, BABY, OH MY GOD. TT_TT And high-five Masi Oka, great acting, way to bring the emotion! ...H50, this is why I still love you, because every now and then you do something right.

SPOILERS: Max Bergman Oh My Heart and other uncontrollable episode feels. )

Now I am dying slowly while I wait for 2.21 to finish downloading (BE FASTER, INTERNET, OH MY GOD), and oh my god I'm just not going to get much of anything useful done today, am I, no, I'm going to be watching 5-0. (I want more of wtf Steve is up to, oh my god, EPISODE YOU'D BETTER DELIVER.)

*I promise I will stop talking about Pō Pouli eventually, but oh my god aslgkhsklfhlkasdf my stats on AO3, 1881 hits and counting, 20 bookmarks, 59 kudos, I'M SORRY OKAY BUT THIS IS REALLY EXCITING, I wrote something and people are actually reading it, a-and they actually like it and I'M JUST HAPPY, OKAY. T_T
zolac_no_miko: (sexy hardware)
Kind of late to the party, I know, but for what it's worth....

IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO START CAPITALIZING. )

...SO WHEN DO WE GET TO HAVE THE SEQUEL?!

Can I also mention, the previews: new trailers for The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus, and Brave, all movies I am SUPER FUCKING EXCITED ABOUT, and also The Amazing Spider-Man, which I am... tentatively excited about? They're doing a really unusual and interesting interpretation of the canon with this one... but I have to say, the scene where the guy pulls a knife on Spidey, AA;SLHGKALSFAKJSKAHFJSFLS REASON ENOUGH TO SEE THE MOVIE, THAT RIGHT THERE IS THE SPIDEY I KNOW AND LOVE. ♥
zolac_no_miko: (somehow I'm not threatened)
MICHAEL FASSBENDER.

There. I just feel like that's always a good way to start, just to get people's attention.

Gaaaahhhh, omg how freaking excited am I about Prometheus? IT IS GOING TO BE SO AMAZING.

Speaking of amazing, watch this awesome promotional video featuring android!Fassbender. I can already tell he is going to be my favorite. (Playlist continues with other cool promotional vids and trailers that are also worth watching, but. FASSBENDER.)

Omg, and just– the cast list, wow. ...Idris Elba with that accent is really weird.

So excited so excited CAN'T WAIT.
zolac_no_miko: (WHEEEEEE~!!)
GO SEE THE CABIN IN THE WOODS GO SEE IT RIGHT NOW.

Ohmigod, avoid reviews, trailers (DEFINITELY NO TRAILERS), cast lists, spoilers of any sort, just, just go see it. Bring a friend to cuddle if you have trouble with scary movies, just, oh my god, it's so worth it. The whole theater was laughing and cheering, and there was an actual freaking round of applause when the credits rolled. Also, Joss Whedon. Also, I told you to see it, just do what I tell you, GO SEE IT.

TIME FOR A BULLETED LIST OF INCOHERENT FLAILING! :DD

Extremely mild spoilers under the cut that you really don't want anyway, mostly to do with casting, just go see the movie right now and then come back and flail with me. )

...So anyway, I walked out of the theater, bought and ate a taco, and walked right back in to see Mirror, Mirror, like a boss. Because I am awesome and I do what I want. Tarsem's take on Snow White was totally charming, and as full of all of the gorgeous set-and-costume porn as I was expecting. The prince was adorable. The dwarves were AWESOME (and multi-ethnic!), the beast was super-cool (kind of a Chinese dragon design), and Snow White was badass (and had badass gaucho pants!). I mean seriously, all of my feminist thumbs up on this one, Snow does all of the saving, really. I would totally show this to my kids, if I ever have kids. I totally called the plot twist at the end, but eh, it's a kids' movie. ...Which was really interesting, actually, seeing how Tarsem does a kids' movie, and a classic fairytale while we're at it.

And then in the credits all of a sudden it was a Bollywood musical, lolol Tarsem you're so cute.

So, not as awesome as The Fall but basically nothing can touch that, that is like a perfect movie. And Mirror, Mirror is charming and lovely and politically correct.

All in all, a super fun movie night. ^_^
zolac_no_miko: (Neal Caffrey)
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH~!!!!!!!

I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT.


Oh my god that episode was so good. T_T I am going to have to watch it again, I think, ohmigod.

And here, remember this? Relevant gif is relevant:



Only more of that. Just. Clean white light and a white background. Neal's face has never looked so beautiful.

But. I just. How am I going to survive until next season?? I really don't think I can.

...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH~!!!!!!!!!!

Protip: someone who almost never drinks coffee should probably not drink two cups of light roast and watch the White Collar season finale. I CAN FEEL MY FACE VIBRATING.
zolac_no_miko: (I love you :D)
Just watched H50 s02e17, "Kupale". THIS EPISODE MAKES ME HAVE ALL OF THE FEELS. I just. It had a little bit of everything I like to see in the show. To wit:

-Hawaiian history/culture.
-Hawaiian current events/politics.
-Environmental issues/Hawaiian native species.
-Steve and Danny expressing affection for each other.
-Steve and Danny bitchfighting (same thing).
-Steve and Danny living in each others' spaces.
-Easily applied Steve/Danny slash goggles.
-Danny being happy and adorable and awkward with his feels.
-TEEEEEEEAAAAAMMMM~!
-No seriously so much Five-0 Team Ohana oh my heart. (Including supporting cast! Like. All of them!)
-Steve pulling ridiculous terrifying Super SEAL stunts to catch suspects. (JESUS WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU MCGARRETT. ...NEVER CHANGE.)
-Steve driving Danny's car.
-Danny in a wet shirt WHAT I HAVE A PULSE.

Plus bonus APOLO OHNO AAHGLHSKFJASKFFSKGHSJDKFLS. Gdammit I thought he looked familiar. AND HOT. ...Since when is he doing acting? Maybe they're just running low on hapa celebrities so they just called his ass up. His very fine, Olympic speedskating, sexy ass. Unf. Although apparently he's also a Dancing with the Stars champion. APOLO OHNO DANCING YES THIS I WANT TO SEE.

TL,DR; ALSHGKA;SJGHKSLFJSGHSFSKDS. ILU H50 MY STUPID HAPPY FEEL-GOOD SHOW. T_T
zolac_no_miko: (Cumberdict Bandersnatch)
Sherlock, "The Reichenbach Fall".

First I'd like to take a moment to say KATHERINE PARKINSON.

Okay, now that that's out of the way....

-JIM MORIARTY, HOW IS IT ACTUALLY POSSIBLE TO BE SO FUCKING SEXY, I JUST CAN'T EVEN. AS;LKGHALSKFJFSGHJDSK.

-MYCROFT. HOLMES'. FACE.

-MARTIN FREEMAN YOU AMAZE ME. He will be the best hobbit ever. Just by, like, default.

OKAY SPOILERS. )

...NO SERIOUSLY HOW AM I ACTUALLY GOING TO SURVIVE???
zolac_no_miko: (Cumberdict Bandersnatch)
SHERLOCK SHERLOCK OH MY GOD.

So I was super excited about "The Hounds of Baskerville", because "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is my all-time favorite Sherlock Holmes story (I was just paraphrasing it on Haleakalā, as I do, whenever there is creeping mist, and/or moors).

And.

-OH MY GOD SO SCARY.

-ALSO OH MY GOD SO HILARIOUS, I laughed so hard at the end there my mom came into my bedroom to figure out wtf was going on. XD; ...And at the beginning. And other bits.

-SPOILERS~! )

...Next week, "The Reichenbach Fall", aaaauuuuuggghh I think I might actually die of anticipation oh my gaaaaaaaawwwwwddd~, I am so fucking excited, ESPECIALLY IN LIGHT OF... THAT THING. THAT I JUST MENTIONED. I MEAN REALLY WHAT IS GOING ON THERE, ASLHGALSKSHFSJLFSJ.
zolac_no_miko: (trust me i'm the Doctor)
I'm back! Sort of. It's definitely going to be a busy few days of holiday shenanigans with friends and family, but I'll at least occasionally be checking in.

O'ahu was awesome, as usual. I actually got to hang out with Maile, which, oh my god, it's been a few years. And I got to spend some time with Jen and Adam and Tommy, too, and stay up to 3 a.m. drinking Scotch and losing all my money at poker. So that was fun.

Mostly I hung out with family a lot and ate alarming amounts of food and set some stuff on fire (okay, mostly just wood, in a fireplace...and candles) and opened presents, and I bonded with an adorable teenager over Doctor Who and other nerdy things. And there was, of course, the requisite afternoon of hanging out in Pauoa with the Nerf arsenal shooting range and ping pong tournament (I think I've established myself fairly securely as the worst ping pong player in the family, although I didn't get a chance to prove myself against Nova). Aside from all of that it was a lot of quietly lounging around Granny's house, reading National Geographic and writing.

Also IT'S ACTUALLY BEEN SUNNY, HOLY CRAP. IT'S LIKE A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE.

Last night Mom and I got home in time to have a light dinner and open presents with Alex (the bro, not the bf... this is just always going to be awkward) and Nova. I ended up with SO MUCH FOOD I can't even (mostly candy), and Alex and Nova got me a new camera, because they love me. I also opened the packages from [livejournal.com profile] look_alive and [livejournal.com profile] platoapproved... [livejournal.com profile] platoapproved sent me lollipops and Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro and a mix CD I haven't had time to listen to yet and a whole pile of Batman swag– tiny notepads! Bat symbol bracelets! foam Batarangs!– because she loves me, and [livejournal.com profile] look_alive sent me OMG AMAZING DELICIOUS homemade caramel and toffee and a whole pile of Trader Joe's swag (LEMUR TEEEEEEEAAAA~!! :D) and a Patrick Stump tuxedo shirt, because omg she loves me.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE~!!

Oh and I watched the Doctor Who Christmas episode last night. I was going to flail about it immediately, but there was a random blackout at, like, one in the morning that cut off my wireless signal, so I was forced to go to sleep, woe. Squee and spoilers under the cut.

Spaceman angel with his head on backwards! )
zolac_no_miko: (Aang)
...Yeah, I'm just going to copypaste word-for-word how I found this in [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs' journal. I'll just... let it speak for itself.

"What kind of adult does a kid become after surviving a trip to a cannibalistic witch’s gingerbread house?

That’s the premise of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (out March 2), which uses the centuries-old German folktale as a preamble to a larger story of vengeance and the bonds between siblings — particularly abused ones.

Next Thursday, look for a trailer from the Paramount film. But for now, we see a first look at Jeremy Renner’s Hansel and Gemma Arterton’s Gretel, all grown up."



(Full article including interview with Arterton.)

SO VERY FUCKING MANY KINDS OF YES. Also omg omg omg ZOE BELL is in it!! As an actress! (Rather than as a stunt double, I mean.)

I AM SO EXCITE.
zolac_no_miko: (WHEEEEEE~!!)
OMG YOU GUYS HOBBIT TRAILER~!!

Fml, LJ still doesn't want to let me embed YouTubes, what is the deal. ...ANYWAY, WATCH IT. :DDDD

...A YEAR IS TOO FAR AWAY. DD:
