This is something I've been wanting to be a part of since I read about the first Slutwalk in Toronto. It's going to be amazing!

I thought it was about time I posted the second lot of reviews for the books I’ve read this year. I’m a little bit behind on the challenge I’ve set for myself, but hopefully I’ll catch up soon. Like last time, these are being cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] 50bookchallenge.

Okay, just because I'm bored, and also super curious - what are your phobias? What freaks you out more than anything?
I thought I'd share mine first, because honestly some of them are freakin' bizarre:

Birds - I think this is reasonable. I'm fairly certain that they're proof of the devil. I can't even look at drawings of them.
Falling - I could be on a stepladder a foot on the ground and become convinced that I'm going to lose my balance and fall. For this reason, I avoid really steep hills, stairs I'm not used to, and escalators.
Cockroaches - I felt sick just typing that. Ugh.
Mannequins - My Ma has one in her room that she has DRESSED UP. Like it has a fucking dress and a hat and scarves and shit. *shivers*
Having super dry hands - If I touch certain types of material with dry hands... I lose my shit
Wearing turtlenecks or having anything wrapped too tightly around my neck - I seriously feel like I'm going to die.
Milk - I don't even know with this one. I just can't. I can't even think about it. I'm okay if it's mixed in with food, like pasta or mashed potatoes, as long as I don't see it being made. When I bake cakes and need to use milk, I get someone else to pour it for me.

So. What about everyone else?

ugh

I'm fairly certain someone is hotlinking some of my images from my Photobucket account. STOP IT. SERIOUSLY.  I'm so frustrated right now, I want to post some stuff but my bandwidth has almost been completely eaten up. Any recs for other photo-hosting sites that are easier to use/won't give me grief/aren't obsessed with deleting *naughty* photos & gifs?
inferiarecoming: (black and white // *claps*)
Confession: I'm totally obsessed with the British royal family. I don't know if it's because I'm Australian and we're part of the Commonwealth; I've grown up reading about them and hearing about them and seeing them on the television. I used to tell my mama that Diana was an angel. I remember so well the day she died, I was devastated. I convinced my mama to let me stay up all night to watch her funeral - I don't remember this, but I managed to stay up and watch the ENTIRE thing.

So. I didn't watch the entire ceremony (like, the guests arriving and whatnot because honestly I don't care I just want to see Catherine and William). Her dress was GORGEOUS. She's beautiful. She has such poise and elegance and I think she looked aboslutely stunning, but in an understated way.

I cracked up watching William trying so hard not to turn around and look at Catherine, and Harry muttering stuff in his ear. They seem to love each other so much. I LOVE THEM OMG DKSGH:SDJKBGJD

Anyway, I cried. Cried buckets. My mama is still watching it, sobbing hysterically. I just watched them exchange vows and thankfully it wasn't too long. Now I'm just waiting for them to come out onto the balcony for the smoochies ♥ ♥ ♥


EDIT: OKAY SO THEY WENT OUT ON THE BALCONY AND I WAS LIKE JESUS CHRIST GUYS JUST KISS ALREADY AND THEN THEY LOOKED AT EACH OTHER AND KIND OF SMIRKED AND THEN BAM! SMOOCHIES! That's it for me, that's all I wanted to see. I'm happy now :D

EDIT 2: my mama is so lazy, she actually TEXTED ME FROM HER ROOM to say "they kissed two more times!!" lolololol

I have a really detailed idea of how the supernatural Sims in my game work and interact. I also have extensive back-stories regarding each particular ‘species’ of Sims. So, here’s a little something that I’ve been working on. It was just supposed to be a quick photo shoot, but then I decided to try cleaning up the pictures and putting them on white backgrounds so there was hours of Photoshop involved. I’ve pretty much decided that I now hate white backgrounds. Also, I think I might do more stuff related to this, because I love writing about Supernatural Sims, and I have ~ideas.

WARNINGS: Mentions of character death and miscarriage.

I completely forgot about this meme until I was going through the folders in my memories and stumbled across it. I'm going to try and finish it this time, I swear!

Day Four - Your least favourite female character?

I'm going to go with the expected response and say Dolores Umbridge. Everytime she pops up in a chapter, I literally grind my teeth and grimace. She's such a horrible villain - maybe not in the same way as Lord Voldemort is, but enough so that she gives me the heebie jeebies.

In other news - I've been playing my Sims 2 uberhood nearly every day. Well. Okay I haven't actually been 'playing', but I've finished making over all the maxis characters, including the university ones and several resurrected sims ;) I decided at the last minute to add the Life Stories sims I downloaded from trippytexan's page, and I'm making them over/adding them to various hoods at this very moment. When I'm done with them, I'll start posting batches of the maxis makeover shots (though I might wait a bit longer, my internet is running so slow, it's incredibly frustrating).

ALSO. I was tossing around ideas for photoshoots and fun pictures I can take, and I came up with this idea. And it was meant to be this little thing and then suddenly there were 25 pictures and a whole backstory and then I started getting more ideas about how to tie it in the megahood. So. I will also be posting that in a couple of days. A hint - it has to do with the supernatural sims and my backstories for each of the different types.

Hope you're all well xx

I'm devastated. I'm sobbing like a baby right now.


RIP darling. You were one of my idols; I've admired you for years. You will be missed, terribly :(

Hello everyone! A couple of weeks ago, I was debating in a post about whether or not I should make another journal for my Sims to pictures and stories. After much thought, I decided to create a community. It will be easy for me to maintain, and if anyone should like my stuff, they can just watch the community! It was actually made awhile ago, but I only had my old Baskerville pictures on there, so I wanted to wait until I could actually post something new!





I'll be posting any and all picspam from the megahood over there, and once I get everything together, I might start posting the little snippets of stories I have. I'm focusing on my maxis makeovers for my revamped megahood, I'm having a lot of fun.

Here's a little something I just uploaded from my Strangtown hood - featuring Pascal, Vicund, and the newest Curious - Andromeda. Click through pic for more:

So, I removed my entire downloads folder. Pruned some stuff, ended up only adding back in the following folders: defaults, mods and hacks. I'm so tired of my game running slowly, I just want to actually play it for once! I've decided that I'm going to go (very) Maxis Match, and I was wondering if you guys could give me some recommendations. I have decent eyes and skin defaults, but I was wondering about hair retextures and clothing - where can I find the best Maxis-Match style stuff related to that? I know  a bunch of you on my f-list play MM, so I'm hoping you can help.


EDIT: omg downloads folder is only 224MB. My mind is blown. It used to be 9.5 GB :/

Okay, so I'm finally getting around to doing this blasted thing. Yay me! Bear with me, I'm not exactly sure how I want to format these posts yet, so consider this a trial run. Will be cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] 50bookchallenge (yes, even though my challenge is to read 100 books. Whatever).

All of this (including the gif) is going behind a cut for a week or so because I really really really don't want to spoil it for anyone who may not have watched it yet.


 
spoilers under the cut regarding ep 2x16 )
inferiarecoming: (glee // true love bbs)

Okay, I'm not going to even touch on the Quinn/Finn parts of this episode - I'm trying to forget it ever happened. Nor am I going to talk about Will/Holly because regarding their relationship - IDGAF. And (surprise surprise) I won't be talking about Blaine/Kurt even though I found their whole "sexy" talk thing freaking hilarious.

No. I'm going to step away from all that for a bit and talk about my first OTP from Glee - Brittany/Santana. I began shipping them in the first season after this exchange:

Santana: sex isn't dating
Brittany: if it were, Santana and I would be dating

And so it began. I was so excited during the 'Duets' episode because I thought for sure that the two of them would get their shit together and be a couple. Of course, Glee never turns out how we expect/want it to. This episode, 'Sexy', however, blew my mind. Naya Rivera acted her butt off in this, and she had me in tears every time she started crying. I think there were hints of this coming in the 'Blame It on the Alcohol' episode, and I'm so glad they acted on it.

As a bisexual, Glee on occasion annoys the hell out of me. In addition to initially showing Santana and Brittany's relationship as a 'fun on the side' thing and not actually acknowleding any possible lesbianism between the two, they also have a main character (Kurt) take a dig at bisexuals without coming back to the topic or forcing him to admit that what he said was wrong. I like that Brittany in this episode is confused about her sexuality, and how Santana seems to get over her 'gay panic' issues to really be truthful about how she feels.

Landslide was one of the most beautiful Glee performances I've seen, and the third one ever to make me cry (first two were 'To Sir With Love' and 'I Want to Hold Your Hand'). Her confrontation with Brittany in front of the lockers was so brave and I was literally clapping and crying all at the same time while I was watching it. Santana has really grown as a character, and I feel like I can finally tick off one of the points on my glee wishlist - to see some growth and emotion with Santana that doesn't revolve around anger or arrogance.

I'm supposed to be helping with dinner but someone sent me this link and NOOOO. I can't believe it. Well. Okay I kind of can. But it's just so sad to see him go the same way that so many other really talented people have. I mean - Layne Staley died the same way. And I watched him on Celebrity Rehab and I thought he was getting clean and stuff. Ugh. This just breaks my heart, it really does.

Okay, so here we go. This is a double whammy post, because I got lazy and wasn't bothered to do the posts until now.

So. 2x13

Justin Bieber what? Seriously, what?
I felt sorry for Quinn during this but part of me felt that she kind of deserved it. She can be so manipulative. I love my bb, but seriously?
I wanted to hit Finn. Like seriously. I wanted to cause him pain. I cannot stand him right now. He's just... mean.
Sam was absolutely adorable during this episode, and him trying to "sexy" and an "artist" cracked me up.
Um. But other than that I wasn't really into this episode. So lets just move on.

NOW. 2x14

Sometimes I feel like this episode was a bit preachy. But it was also full of deliciously awesome crack, so I kind of loved it.
Okay. Things I loved - Rachel. But to a point. I loved her being drunk because she was adorable but I hated the way she treated Kurt. Seriously. She was horrible. She knew how much Kurt liked Blaine, and I get that she was drunk, and she just went for it. Ugh.
Just the glee club in general cracked me up.
OH GOD MY BB Santana, crying all the time, I love her so much. She's adorable.
Um. What else. Lauren. I love Lauren. I love how Lauren and Quinn just attacked Puck. Angry drunks for the win!
Personally, I'm more like Tina and Mercedes, but I ALWAYS end up as Santana. I'm a "everything is funny oh god can't stop laughing oh god now I'm crying I hate my life."
I also didn't like Kurt's bi-phobia. As a bisexual, I just was really pissed off by his little tirade. And then the fact that it wasn't addressed again really bothered me. I was kind of hoping that Blaine would end up being bisexual just so they could explore it a bit more.

So those of you who know me are well aware that I am a big horror buff. Like, super-intense-live-for-the-genre-my-dreams-are-all-horror-based kind of buff. And one of my favourite things to do is combine my favourite genre and my favourite fandoms and smooosh them together to create

HORROR FANFICTION.

Harry Potter is sadly lacking in this, but GLEE. Oh my Gaga, the Glee fandom rocks at writing horror/apocalypse/paranormal/thriller fic. And I love them for it. I'm signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] klainebigbang, and reading through the prompt/plot post makes me super happy, because I can already see that a couple of people have got horror-related plots.

It's funny isn't it? For a show that advertises itself as a musical-comedy, the amount of dark!fanfiction is astounding. And totally awesome.

I'm going to have to make a rec-list for fics like this - the [livejournal.com profile] glee_angst_meme will be a great place to start.

Also, just want to pimp out [info]gleeoverbigbang- the big bang for glee crossover fic! I'm the only person signed up as an artist so far :( 

WE NEED MORE ARTISTS!
inferiarecoming: (glee // OTP)
I JUST SIGNED UP FOR THE KLAINE BIG BANG* OMG SHAKING IN MAH BOOTS RIGHT NOW.

If you're a Glee fan and ESPECIALLY if you ship those dapper boys, go over to klainebigbang and sign up!

I like nervous and excited all in one big bundle. EEK!



Also I need to make posts for the last two Glee eps, totally forgot about doing them. Soon you'll hear all about what I really think of Justin Bieber, why I love Lauren, and why Finn if currently on my shit-list.
Oh, and lots of gushing about Rachel. LOVE MAH BB ♥


*as an artist of course, fanmixes here I come!
