alianora: River fights a battle of wits with an unarmed Jayne (FIREFLY: PWNED)
I am very excited to say that something I've been working on for a while is finally up today.

Skye of Flooded Lizard Kingdom also runs Heroine Content, a blog dedicated to "feminist and anti-racist thoughts on women kicking ass." It's an awesome blog, and I was very thrilled to get asked to do a review of one of my favorite action movies, Ninja Assassin, with co-writing from Skye.

The review is HERE, and I think it's a pretty even look at the movie.

And we might discuss Rain's abs a few times. Maybe. But we definitely profess our undying love for the character of Mika.

Check it out, and please comment! I'd love to know what you think!

(and for the record, I totally DID send that gif like I said I would).
alianora: Sakurai Sho from Arashi, hand over one eye (ARASHI: Sho Shy)
Things I am looking for, oh mighty flist:

- Nicholas Teo singing "Little Turtle" from Smiling Pasta
- S.H.E.'s Boom Boom Boom (actually, anything S.H.E., but that song in particular)
- Big Bang stuff - i have a random assortment of songs, but...i need more
- G-Dragon stuff, because i need help omg
- MBLAQ, because they're hilariously lulzy
- clearly, i need more asian ladies on my playlists. please to be helping? i like upbeat stuff. I like S.H.E. and 2NE1, if that helps at all.
- anything else you want me to listen to for whatever reason

Otherwise, what I have been doing:

I got sucked into Big Bang a couple of weekends ago. I blame [ profile] uisceros and this post primarily. I can now recognize almost everyone 95% of the time.

I find G-Dragon alternately hot and 12. it's disconcerting.

It makes me grin like an idiot every time T.O.P. spells his name in a song, and I think it's "Always" where they say, "Bang 'em," but everytime I hear it I have to laugh and clap my hands in sheer joy.

I downloaded some icons. i was looking for G-Dragon, but ended up with several of Young Bae. um..oops? So, if you have links or whatever to additional icons of Big Bang awesomeness, please to share.

also, send help, i cant stop listening to Garu Garu GO! and the Japanese version of Baby, Baby.

I watched You're Beautiful, and while the first several episodes were cringe inducing in entirely too many spots, once the show really got going, it was fairly awesome. it's crack, of course, because HELLO, it's a show about a nun crossdressing to join a boyband, but there is also a lot of sweetness and a lot of truth underneath the insanity.

Tae Kyung is amazingly wonderful, completely uptight, totally anal, and a SERIOUSLY good guy underneath all the repression and mommy issues. i really liked that he never denied his feelings. yes, it took him a while to figure it out, but once he got that he did like her, he didn't avoid it. and there wasnt any of the "I WILL DENY OUR LOVE TO PROTECT YOU" from either side, which was awesome.

Mi Nam/Mi Nyu was as dumb as a brick for a while, but once she started sticking up for herself a little bit, i liked her SO much more. and i could wave away a lot of her stupidity by her being very sheltered and joining the convent as that seemed like the most logical place for her to go.

the fact that all three of the guys loved Mi Nam/Mi Nyu was annoying as crap, but mentally it has lead to happy places where the real Mi Nam and Shin Woo experience porn in several ways, so hey! it's all good! the real Mi Nam was pretty fucking awesome, too, and I loved that how they did the reveal! I wish we had seen more of him!


again, additional icons would be lovely. links?

alianora: Sakurai Sho from Arashi, hand over one eye (ARASHI: Aiba Adorable)
[profile] princess_dexter asked, forever ago, about my Top Five Drama Heroes. Which I fully plan to do. At some point. But for now? My Top Five Drama Heroines.

Also, Im betting there are some surprises on here for most people. Like, I really really love Mei-chan, but Mei isn't on my list. For various reasons. I got a little wordy describing why I love these ladies, so..sorry? Also, to no one's surprise, I really really like ladies with strength and smarts.

1. Makino - Hana Yori Dango
Girl is BAD.ASS. She's got crazy guts. She punches Domyouji in the face and remains entirely highly wildly skeptical of continued professed love for her. Actually, she thinks he's insane. She stands up to Darth Mama, who is scary enough to make anybody pee their pants - but she isn't stupid. She walks out of there going OH CRAP WHAT DID I JUST DO? She doesn't back down, she doesn't give up, she loves her family, and will do anything to keep them safe and fed. And all this while being courted in weird ways by a man who should probably be considered a psychopath.

2. Momo - ToGetHer/Superstar Express
Momo, for all that she is a shut in and hates being in the public eye, is no shrinking violet. She's fierce in her own way, standing up for what she thinks, and does NOT let Mars walk all over her. Add to that, she has a very big heart, and is always willing to help the people she is close to. She's independent in a quiet way, and, while she doesn't give any bullies well deserved beat downs, she doesn't let them break her, either.

3. Ji-Eun - Full House
jdKLASJAKJDSAKLS THIS STUPID SHOW. And yet, I love this girl, as much as I want to punch myself in the face for saying it. Yes, she's immature and her squabbles with Young-Jae are nothing short of pulling each other's pigtails and kicking each other in the shins, but she is hilarious, tough, and frequently wears completely inappropriate heels. SHE LAUNCHES HERSELF OFF THE GROUND TO HEADBUTT YOUNG-JAE IN THE FACE. She drops Young-Jae's grandmother while trying to help her, and the cherry on the top is the fact that she is a FANFIC WRITER.

4. Mako/Sailor Jupiter - Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon
I know Usagi is the headliner here, and I love her very much, too. But there is something about Mako that I find so completely compelling. She's cheerful, tomboyish, and takes care of herself. She's a 14 year old who lives on her own, cooks for fun, and is so thrilled to have close friends, even though she is hesitant to get close to anyone. Plus, I find her really really hot. She has this little freckle right above her lip, and my occasional gay breaks through, and I SERIOUSLY want to make out with her and kiss that freckle.

5. Yuki - Summer Snow
Summer Snow is a more realistic, quieter show than I usually go for. There is nothing even resembling crack about it. And yet, one of my favorite ladies. She's another quiet one, having struggled with a severe heart condition for her entire life. It very much restricts the activities she is able to do, and yet, she decides to do something crazy and takes a class in scuba diving. She wants a job, She loves her father, volunteers with sick children at the hospital, and is willing to risk her health in order to actually live. Also, the quality is kinda crappy on these caps, plus, they are tiny, so you get two
alianora: Akira's Nobuta Power pose (NwP: Kon)
I've never spammed a vid before, but that was before this vid moved into my brain, took up housekeeping, and now won't leave me alone. This vid makes me grin like anything. I can't stop watching it! I've watched it five times in a row, easy. I know little to nothing about the bands, but that's probably all about to change...if I can stop watching this vid long enough to find out about them.

The bright colors, the hair, the insane clothes - watching it is like being on a Skittles induced sugar high. IT'S AWESOME.

Pics are kinda small, but there is only so much you can do with vids saved from youtube.

F-R-E-S...A? )

Ive been stuck at home for the past two days with Fever McClingypants, so while he was napping and in between Sesame Street songs, I made icons.

It's impossible to watch tv you are interested in with a kid around. Especially if that tv is in a foreign language and requires enough concentration to read subtitles.

So, icons! Comment and credit, no alternations, blah blah blah.

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon:
-The World Destroying OTP-

-Jupiter/Mako is HOT-

-Serenity flings explosions, which is quite possibly my favorite part-

-Dark Mercury/Nephrite, my secondary OTP-


TW Hana Kimi: You know what would make this show even better? MORE MAKEOUTS.

I should be either:
A) wallowing in the depths of the yuletide archive gleefully
B) writing up an epic post about why I have no dignity, love Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, and am remarkably cheerful about that loss of dignity
C) watching ep 4 of Why Why Love

my eyes are about to fall out from too much reading, and i can no longer keep fandoms straight
every time i try to write this up, i get distracted by wanting to provide pictorial proof, and i havent finished gathering it yet
the subs arent working, so i have to redownload, and currently, im in the middle of downloading Butterfly Lovers, or some cheesy HK movie with Wu Zun in it. Mmmmm.

So, I decided that beating myself in the face with a hammer would be much more entertaining, so I started Snow Queen, and DEAR FUCKING JESUS I AM LESS THAT TWO MINUTES IN AND IM PRETTY SURE THE TWO LEADS ARE ALREADY DEAD.

Also? just to point out, the slightest little know, if he really IS in fucking Lapland, his FACE WOULD FREEZE OFF WITHOUT SOMETHING OVER IT. And then he falls off a cliff.

WHY AM I WATCHING THIS? I already know Korea hates me and, if the two leads don't die, they are probably related. Or involved in a life of crime. Or in love with their sisters. AND THEN WILL END UP KILLING EACH OTHER.
