Heroes season finale babble - SPOILARS AHOY )

....okay, now that all that incoherence is out of the way, back to paper-writing. I'm writing about the medieval perception of Gog and Magog, who Biblically are the peoples in the hordes of the Antichrist at the end times, and were traditionally thought in medieval times to have been sealed in the Caucasus by Alexander the Great behind the Gates of Alexander. Gog and Magog were associated with pretty much every vice, from incest to cannibalism to (obviously) being non-Christian, and were later identified with everyone from the Goths to the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. (My specific topic, though it keeps shifting in bits, is the way in which they were seen differently in England and Germany than in the rest of Europe, and the role geography plays in these perceptions.) So I was coming up with some paper titles, and figured I'd let y'all vote on which one is the best!

[Poll #1100591]

* Caveat: I will probably not actually name my paper this, as while my professor seems to enjoy my snarky in-class comments about Orlando Bloom's inability to grow chest hair or severed-head necrophilia (IT WAS RELEVANT TO CLASS DISCUSSION, HONEST), I'm not sure he'd appreciate Internet humor in the title of a seminar paper, especially since none of these titles are all that informative. D:

In the latest ep of Heroes, we discover from this screencap of Peter's passport that not only is his birthday December 23 - making him a Capricorn (HA TAKE THAT ENKI SOMETIMES YOU CAPPIES GET STUCK WITH THE SUCKY ONES TOO) - but his "sex" is listed as female.


*is reminded of that god-awful crossdressing!Peter fic featuring that even more god-awful photomanip of Milo Ventimiglia in a ballerina dress*

Also, I typoed the title of the show as "Heteroes" at first; MOST INAPPLICABLE TYPO EVAR Y/Y?

Finally, happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] weruletheschool! (Today also happens to be my mom's birthday, so I suppose I'd better call her this morning to wish her a happy one since I won't get home till late tonight.)

Apparently an effective treatment for HIV - one might even say a cure - has been discovered. (From [livejournal.com profile] dosetsu.) Yay! :D

Also, upon sitting down to write my "epic" Dumbledore post, I realized that it would be totally TL;DR. So, in lieu of that, have this online conversation comparing Harry Potter and the new season of Heroes:

Cut for spoilers (I guess?) about Molly's living situation in the new season )

In semi-related news, I set up TVersity on my computer so it can act as a media center and stream media to my PS3. So this morning I watched the new ep of Heroes, for the first time ever (well aside from the S1 eps I've watched on DVD) on my HDTV. And it was SWEET. Not only can I watch any video file on my computer on my PS3 - even if it's not in a PS3-supported format (ilu codecs) - but I also have access to my entire music library, which is also kinda awesome.

For those of you without the traditional "media center" systems - PS3/Xbox 360 - note that apparently this also works on the Wii, through the Wii web browser...it automatically converts music and video to Flash files that are playable in the browser itself.

As for my reactions to the Heroes ep? Spoilers, mostly for the new 'hero' introduced in this ep and for new Parkhinder developments )

Edit: Also, every time I listen to Silent Hill no Uta my brain BREAKS ALL OVER AGAIN. D: D: D:

Ahahaha, this bit of fucked-upness (courtesy of Neil Gaiman) is worth a read, despite its author's wanky tone. I have to say, though, that I called the twist in this article on the first page - clearly I spend too much time on fandom_wank. XD

On the plus side I finally get to use this icon. :D

Also, the Heroes Slash Manual is kind of awesome, and I wish I had $8400 so I could buy the newly Vatican-released Knights Templar trial papers (from [livejournal.com profile] moonsheen).

And because I can't go an entire post without talking about videogames, Gamers was out of Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions. Weo. Also, I downloaded the demo of the new PS3 Conan game and it kinda sucks - I was hoping for something along the lines of Heavenly Sword with bigger thews, and it kind of is that but with worse control and uglier graphics. D:

Edit: Apparently I am indeed prescient - it just showed up ON fandom_wank, with a lot more details.

KILLER AMOEBAE AUGH (link belatedly from [livejournal.com profile] tastystirfry).

Also some highly amusing Heroes fanart. XD

Gotta run to campus to print off my readings for today (stupid PDFs, eating up all my ink at home), but I finally watched the Heroes season finale this morning.


Anyway, as expected, it was an AWESOME finale and I'm glad they're doing the Heroes: Origins stuff and more graphic novels over the summer so that I will be able to get my fix.

Now which Netflix DVD should I watch, the first disc of Arrested Development or the first disc of Freaks and Geeks? It's nice to be able to make the important decisions again. XD

In less good news, apparently RPGFan lied to me, and Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm doesn't come out until the 30th. Woe. And in other news of suckitude, it appears that Veronica Mars has almost certainly (like 96% for suire) been cancelled. WOE. I hope all those bitches who were campaigning for its cancellation because their favorite ship wasn't being supported DIE IN A FIRE. AND ARE THEN FORCED TO WATCH ALL THEIR FAVORITE SHOWS TURN INTO MARMALADE BOY.

...At least I still have you, Heroes. You'll never leave me, right? No, it'll just kill off everybody D:

- Speaking of Heroes... Man, this is totally my favorite show right now. If I had anyone to talk to in person about it who was as into it as I am my mania would be approaching golden-era-of-Buffy levels (back when my mom was watching it with me and we'd spend the week in between episodes discussing theories and squeeing). As it is, every Monday night and/or Tuesday morning is Heroes discussion time on IRC; it's usually me, [livejournal.com profile] jokersama, [livejournal.com profile] bemysty and [livejournal.com profile] nangke having sophisticated conversations about the show. ...okay, I'm totally lying, we're all "OMG SYLAR/HIRO/MOHINDER IS MAI LOLI" and "GODDAMMIT, YOU'RE BROTHERS, STOP TOUCHING EACH OTHER LIKE THAT."
- Oh man, this is great. It's a response to that horrifically sexist Mary Jane (from Spider-Man) statue I linked a few posts back. Someone apparently felt things should be equal-opportunity, and I bless their name...
- Although it turns out DC already did something similar. I applauded their equal-opportunity cheese/beefcake (mmmm, cheese beefcake sounds like a delicious dish)...and then I noticed the superheroes' chest hair and my brain immediately broke beyond repair. psst, Batman totally has Alfred do his manscaping, and Robin for the dirty bits.
- Guitar Hero Rocks the 80s confirmed for PS2 release July 17th. ZOMG YES. (They even have Dio! And Asia's "Heat of the Moment"! ILU EIGHTIES)
- Hot Dogs for Homophobes. I believe the title explains it all.
- Cake Flushing Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. (From [livejournal.com profile] jokersama.) The Hot Fuzz publicity tour is clearly SERIOUS BUSINESS (which by the way I am totally going to go see in the theater next week now that I have the time).

Edit: Oh my God, Lloyd Alexander died. That makes me so sad...I LOVED the Prydain Chronicles as a kid. Still do. ;_;

...Oh my god, the phone just rang, and it was NATHAN PETRELLI. (Okay, a prerecorded "campaign" recording, but still! It's the Pasdar's voice!) AWESOME, I'm so glad I'm playing the Heroes ARG. :D
gogmagog: The Fourth Doctor from <i>Doctor Who</i> (NEED CAFFEINE NOW PLZKTHX)
Well, I'm throwing in the towel for today; though I didn't hit my ideal pagecount, I finished a respectable enough number of pages that I can go to bed without feeling guilty.

And that's in spite of having spent an hour or so surfing Rome tourism sites and London bed-and-breakfast sites, and getting physically homesick for England; when I think that I'll be back there in less than two months at the latest, I feel excited and happy and impatient all at once. Seriously, I have needed this for a while now.

In the meantime, I have some browser tabs I need to close, so without further ado...

Let's Positive Linking, Making Up for Lost Time Edition!
- Enjoy this fanfiction, featuring Princess Peach x Wendy O. Koopa. (From [livejournal.com profile] jokersama, of course.) Not only is it a rather sweet and fuzzy yuri fic, but it also contains discussion of their respective female reproductive systems. A note to the author: 1) I never needed to know about Princess Peach's first period in graphic detail, and 2) I'm fairly certain turtles don't actually go into heat, bad TMNT smutfic to the contrary.
- MadTV takes on Heroes. Highly amusing if you've seen the series, and no real spoilers if you're past like episode 4. (The Niki/Jessica bit is especially hilarious, because that's TOTALLY what I'd do if I had an evil mirror twin.)
- Strawberry margaritas are now a health food. I believe the proper reaction that is OMG FUCKING WAHOO, but then I also enjoy frozen strawberry margaritas frequently.
- Which is worse: eating still-squirming octopus tentacles, or eating whole (but miniature) live octopi? (From [livejournal.com profile] rathershady.) Honestly, I can't decide, except I'm pretty firmly on the side that NO SQUIRMING TENTACLES ARE GOING IN MY MOUTH KTHX.
- Metal Giko Solid...quite possibly the pinnacle of ASCII art. (Seriously, this shit is kind of amazing.)
- Was the destruction of the Death Star an inside job? (From [livejournal.com profile] sixteenbynine.) This isn't the conspiracy you're looking for~
- God of War II European launch party features decapitated goat, offal-eating. Animal rights activists, and people with taste, understandably protest. (Nevertheless, there's a small part of me that thinks that is hella cool, and certainly more historically accurate than canapes.)
- Speaking of wacky Europeans, Scottish Queen's Guards are videotapes half nude, spanking each other and grabbing each other's willies. Of course, The Sun is there. (Where would we be without tabloids?)
- Finally, a SomethingAwful Photoshop Phriday that's actually consistently good. The assignment? To create an 70's exploitation-style grindhouse movie poster for any film. All of 'em are at least decent, and some are GREAT.

Honestly, Married to the Sea is AWESOME.

Entertainment Weekly has series of Heroes covers which give clues for the rest of the season

My thoughts on said covers, full of spoilage for everything up to the most recent episode and full of speculation for the rest of the season, with one spoiler from the preview NBC aired for next week's ep )

Honestly, I think everyone I know needs to watch this series, but especially [livejournal.com profile] lordtravis (once finals are over). Not only does it have a lot of crossover in terms of fans with shows I know a lot of my friends like (such as Battlestar Galactica), but it's pretty much all about superheroes and comic books: one of the main characters is a comic book artist whose art is done by big-name artist Tim Sale, and one of the others is a huge comics fan who makes retarded geeky injokes about Kitty Pryde and Green Lantern. In fact, in general it's a loving tribute to superhero comics - especially X-Men, to which it owes the biggest debt - even while it gently pokes fun at spandex and Superman.


To those of you who are, enjoy this music video: Mohinder/Sylar, set to "I Want It That Way"

Finally, happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] moonsheen!

Edit: Have a couple of wanky threads on Heroes. Honestly, they kind of irritate me a little. As [livejournal.com profile] jokersama points out, people who scamper to claim that things such as Mohinder diriving a cab when he was a professor in India are ZOMG DEGRADING are missing that the point that, yes, this sucks, but this happens not unregularly to highly skilled people who emigrate to the US from other countries. And honestly I find the way Heroes deals with race actually pretty unusually good for a network show: I mean, this is the series that begins with three interracial relationships pretty much right off the bat, with no one really remarking about how unusual it is or it ever really being an issue, and definitely the series with the most diversity as far as race on TV right now (the race of major characters, even) as far as I know.

An interesting article about Heroes (including the tidbit that apparently Masi Oka based Hiro 's wide-eyed innocence on a Dragon Ball character; Goku probably, or Gohan).

Also on the subject of Heroes, as part of their ARG, Hiro's blog recently featured a puzzling crossword. At least puzzling until you realize just how dorky it is.

Our COMPLETELY DORKY IRC NATTERING on the subject; to be fair, though, we're not any dorkier than Hiro )
