A Pocket Full of Murder

(no subject)

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but you'd think she could at least spell the title right and do something with the formatting. Three out of four reviewers say, "Get a life, you plagiarizing weasel."

On the other hand, Liz says this means I really am famous. Snert.

I used to be disgusted, now I try to be amused...

On the other hand, lizbee says this proves I really am a BNF. Snert.

Thanks to everybody who spoke out indignantly on my behalf, both in comments and in e-mail. Warms the cockles of my li'l heart, it does.

Pay no attention to the [Ber]man behind the curtain

Yes, it's true, as of last night I have finally seen Star Trek: Nemesis. Took me long enough, didn't it? Thing is, I haven't seen any of the TNG movies since Generations, so it wasn't like I was rushing out in a frenzy to slap down $14 so I could see it on the big screen.

I must say, however, that it was not until seeing this movie that I realized my love for Trek in general and TNG in particular had not merely waned with the years, but actually turned up its little Starfleet regulation footwear-clad toes and died.

So, anyway. It looks like that's it for Trek, where I'm concerned at least. I can no longer bear the contrived machinations of TPTB, their continual ducking of consequences. I'm too spoiled by good writing now, thanks to shows like 24 and Alias, and I can never go back.

Sorry 'bout that.

BWAAA!!!!

Oh, man, that was beautiful. Many many thanks to jerie for pointing me to this little gem of a parody:

Blemishes

I laughed, I cried, I stuffed my face. Thanks, zakhad. You rule.

P.S. Was Shinzon really just a teenager? I had him pegged as early twenties. Don't tell me I have to go to The Bad Place again. I'm still traumatized over Daniel Radcliffe.

GIP!

Because I couldn't just pick one fandom like any normal human being. I bet a lot of you will be able to identify the first three, but does anyone recognize the last one?
