ANOTHER MEME, because that is what I'm into this week.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] apple_pathways again: Your Internet Life and YOU!

Type each letter of alphabet into the address bar of your main browser, and note which site pops up first. Leave off the naughty ones if you must, but give us a little hint as to what it was!

Surprising no one, my list is very LiveJournal heavy. )

Okay, so, there's this AMAZING website called Myths RETOLD (bettermyths.com) where this dude Ovid retells all our favorite myths in Bro-speak, and it is FUCKING HILARIOUS. If you are not already aware of the fabulousness that is this site, get ye over there right away. It's got everything you could possibly want and more: Greek myths, Norse myths, Hindu myths, African myths, Arabian myths, EVERYTHING. Including more contemporary mythology, certain films and novels and so forth that fall into a mythical format. Also, American superheroes.

...You know I can't actually resist that, right? So I will share with you the origin stories of Superman, Batman, and Spiderman, as told by Ovid. Read them, BUST A GUT LAUGHING, and go check out the other myths, you will not regret this, I promise.

"What if Superman was a Nazi"

"Batman is Gifted at Crimefighting, Not so Great at Names"

"Spiderman: Like Batman, but for Spiders"

YOU'RE WELCOME.

Couldn't for the life of me figure out how to use this can opener. Believe me, it is completely counter-intuitive and not at all what you'd expect. It does not function in the same way as a normal can opener.

Was getting frustrated. Would have to abandon burrito dinner plan! Contemplating the obnoxious choice of buying a can opener for my own personal use for a month's time, or simply not eating canned foods during that month.

Wondered how I might use the internet to solve my dilemma. If only I could do a telepathic search for the image of the weird can opener!

Noticed brand name OXO on can opener. Googled "oxo can opener". Found helpful instructional video for very same can opener on YouTube.

Am now enjoying tasty burrito dinner.

GODS BLESS THE INTERNET.

...Seriously how did people live before?

AVATAR MARATHON BIRTHDAY PARTY IS BEST BIRTHDAY PARTY. [livejournal.com profile] regonym, [livejournal.com profile] shichahn, [livejournal.com profile] platoapproved, and Eric, you guys are the best!!

Oh god. I have consumed soooo much beer. XDDD
zolac_no_miko: (trust me i'm the Doctor)
Hope all the Americans on my Flist had a nice Thanksgiving weekend (and for everyone else, hope you had nice weekends, too, and lots of wonderful things to be thankful for).

So, let's think about things we're thankful for. For instance, I am thankful for the Internet. The Internet is a wonderful fucking place, and I for one am not pleased by the U.S. Congress trying to ruin my Internet. Y'all have heard about SOPA/PIPA by now, right? No?

Allow me to 'splain (mostly with copypasta from my friends because it's more efficient than trying to reword everything ^_^;;). )

We need to kill these noxious bills. So do what you can. Spread the word. Contact your member of Congress or Senator. And/or join Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) in his epic plan to stop it. In signing this petition, not only are you saying you want it stopped, but Wyden will read off every name on this list in one of the greatest filibusters ever, should SOPA come up to a vote. So if you have, like, five seconds (I know you do, if you're reading this!) go sign your name on the link above. If you have slightly more than five seconds, please edit the text in the blue box to come up with your own unique statement as to why you want SOPA blocked. This is important as in government petitions, names that post the same exact copypasta statement are all counted as a single comment, while unique comments are counted separately. While posting with the copypasta will get your name on the filibuster, including a unique statement will do even more good than that.

...Right, so that's your PSA for the day. Under the cut: all of the food, climbing 2200 foot cliffs for fun, a very Doctory holiday season, and the I'm A Time Lord! meme. )
zolac_no_miko: (Steve and Danny)
Ahahahahahaha so. Using only Google Maps, a few seconds of Episode 1, and my brain, I FOUND STEVE MCGARRETT'S HOUSE. Totally check it out, guys. (It's the green arrow, not the A. Ignore the A.) Sadly, no, you cannot see Steve and Danno having sex on the beach.

THIS IS HIS ADDRESS:
5329 Kalanianaole Highway
Honolulu, Hawaii 96821

In real life the property is called The Bayer Estate, they have, like, weddings there and stuff.

...It really wasn't that hard to find. From the flyover shots they like to use to establish our location at Steve's house, I already knew the general area of O‘ahu his neighborhood is in. With some careful scrutiny, I was able to match the pattern of houses in and above the valley behind his neighborhood to ʻĀina Haina. So then I thought, I know what his roof, beach, and trees look like, I know what his neighbor's roofs, beaches, and trees look like, there's only so much coastline in ʻĀina Haina, how hard can it be? It took, like, five minutes.

A) I AM THE AWESOMEST PERSON IN THE WORLD, BOW DOWN IN THE FACE OF MY MAD SKILLS AND NATIVE GENIUS.
B) I AM THE DORKIEST DORK WHO EVER DORKED, HOW EMBARRASSING FOR ME AND EVERYONE WHO KNOWS ME.
C) I HAVE TOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS.
D) ALL OF THE ABOVE.
zolac_no_miko: (lose the necktie more often Danny)
Okay, so I wasn't going to do this, but it seems I just can't help myself. I've changed my mind. There are some things the world just really needs to see, and it would be irresponsible of me to stand in the way of humanity's ability to enjoy these wonderful things.

Things like this: SCOTTY CAAN, PORN COP. ...So, Scott Caan (better known as the new Hawaii Five-0's Danny Williams) was in this AWFUL MOVIE entitled Deep In The Valley that is basically a parody of porn. Anonymous Coward On The Internet has thoughtfully cut out most of the ninety or so minutes that we REALLY DON'T NEED TO SEE, and given us eleven minutes of Just Scott Caan in all his glory. GUYS, THIS IS EITHER THE BEST OR MOST TERRIFYING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.

As I told [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs, what's really funny is that Scott's character in this is a cop, and he looks like Danny and he dresses like Danny and he talks with his hands like Danny... basically it's like THIS IS THE DREAM DANNY WILLIAMS HAD ONE TIME WHERE HE STARRED IN A PORNO.

...His name is ROD CANNON, guys, ROD CANNON, come on, you know you need this in your life.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] queenklu and [livejournal.com profile] leupagus, like the creepy journal-stalker I am.

In other news, I've only got one South Pacific documentary episode left. Let me tell you, guys, Benedict Cumberbatch's pronunciation of Hawaiian names is SO HORRIBLY BAD, oh god. It makes me wonder how awfully he's slaughtering the other Pacific languages, since I can't tell the difference. ...Benedict, darling, you're trying so hard~! *pinches his cheeks* The series is totally worth it, though, for Benedict's voice the absolutely gorgeous scenery and camera work, and the amazing ground-breaking glimpses of rare animals and the fount of really interesting information. And anyway, he's hardly the first or the last to fail horribly at Hawaiian. *laughs at all of you forever*

...Wow, it hasn't been raining for at least a couple of hours. That would be a first since I got back. I should maybe go mow the lawn or something, while I still can.

If you missed the State of the Union address last night (or just want a repeat performance), you can watch it here on YouTube.

And check out the Worldview channel. Tomorrow they will conduct a YouTube exclusive interview with the President, using questions submitted by YouTubers. If you've got a question for Obama, you've got until midnight ET to submit one.

...I know Google's losing money on YouTube, but if this is the kind of thing they're going to make available to us, I'm glad they bought it. Even if it means they're that much closer to total world domination. Only Facebook stands in their way. And I don't even want Facebook to win. Fuck Facebook.

Two things.

The Adventures of Sexy Batman on "Hark! A Vagrant". Your liver might explode from laughter. Or you might curl into a quivering ball of terror. Or both.

The music video for "The City", Patrick Wolf's new song from his new album, soon to be released. Booming piano. Epic drums. A saxophone. A beach. The 1980s. Top of the morning!
zolac_no_miko: (flying kickapow)
So this weekend contained many exciting adventures with media. Let me tell you of them.

Follow the cut for massive word-dump discussion of kestrels, Misfits, Young Justice, True Grit, 1940's Batman, Megamind, a one-to-one scale model of the Enterprise-D, NOLAN'S BATMAN VILLAIN CASTING CHOICES, and the holy Buddhist temple of superheroes and sci-fi action movies. )

...So, that was my weekend. In other news, I have to keep the door to my bedroom closed during the day now. Because the cat appears to have developed the habit of coming into my room while I'm gone and PEEING ON MY BELONGINGS, FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
zolac_no_miko: (BATMAN!!)
Last night I dreamed the world ended. My dad became a tobacco farmer and there were monkeys everywhere. )

...Then my alarm went off, so that was the end of that nonsense.

Old news on [livejournal.com profile] dear_mun... THIS was the most amazing freaking crack, ohmigod. Um, spoilers for FMA manga? Maybe? I dunno that it spoils anything, so much as makes everything better. I dunno, I'm not caught up, and I just barely know enough to understand what's going on. BUT IT'S AMAZING. Also, for my own reference, Robin spoke with Kim from Deathproof, ahahaha amazing!! The conversation turned out to be much more entertaining than I thought it would be when Kim told Robin he could probably get stunt work. And then Robin spoke to Jason Todd (Miller!verse), which, yeah, is just about as awkward as you'd expect it to be.

I'm deeply obsessed with Top Gear (BEST. SHOW. EVER.), I'm madly in love with Richard Hammond, and guys, I want to share this with you, because it may be the best thing that's ever happened to me: html Comics, a free online library of over three hundred thousand comic books that at least claims, fairly convincingly I think, to be legal. TT_TT Oh my god you guys, this is seriously every comic ever. Although, they lag behind a bit on current publications, but who cares?! No more camping in Powell's for me! I'm reading my way through Teen Titans Go! right now, finally. Next on the agenda is finishing Fables, then... oh god, everything I can find with Deadpool in it I think, then every Batman comic ever, then... idefk, The Spirit?! Then EVERY COMIC EVER. ALL OF THEM. ALPHABETICALLY. ...James, bb, I love u. TTT_TTT

...Also, I really need a job. Like, I really do. ...But I don't waaaaaaaant one! T_T
