one true loves…

21 November 2008

So a while ago Mennogirl listed off her one true loves, and well, I’m feeling in the mood to do so as well.  (Or maybe one true crushes…)

The basic rule with one true loves are that they are not attainable or realistic in anyway.
These can (and should) include characters (from any media: film, tv, fiction – and shouldn’t just be based around one actor if possible), cartoons, people circa not-this-time, and just generally people you don’t actually know and probably will never know.
Oh.   And you should have no less than 5.

And it begins… (in pretty much no particular order)

serjtankian1. Serj Tankian
I actually got a chance to see him live.  Only briefly (due to my friend wanting to leave, she drove… I wasn’t happy).  Anyway.  Ozzfest: and I got to see Serj dancing around, singing with his amazing voice.  I do basically have to thank an ex from high school for introducing me to System of a Down.  I thoroughly enjoy his music, and I’m pretty amazed by him in general.  Also, I just want to say, BYOB is actually really challenging on Guitar Hero.

john2a. John Lennon circa Hard Days Night
I just found him amazingly amusing and ohso entertaining… plus, the whole musician thing… Definitely my favorite part is John in the tub.  A lot of people tend to choose John or Paul as favorite Beatles… Sometimes Ringo (gotta love Mr. Conductor).  But well, it was completely John’s personality in this film that wooed me.

george_harrison_22b. George Harrison circa Help! (and others)
.. Well, George has pretty much always been my favorite Beatle.  And well, George on the car was pretty funny…  I don’t know, I just enjoy him overall.  Maybe I like the quite ones.  Who knows.  His son, Dhani, is also attractive though.

jack3. Captain Jack Sparrow.
Yep.  Not even “Johnny Depp as…” It’s just Jack.  Possibly one of my favorite characters.  Don’t get me wrong, Johnny Depp is hot too… but well, Jack Sparrow is just awesome.  Who wouldn’t be attracted to this dirty and hilarious pirate?  We definitely have at least rum in common.  And well, maybe I have a soft spot for flailing.

joey4. Joey Ice Cream.
Like most people, I first found out about Keith Nobbs (the actual person) via The Black Donnellys.  It was a great show, and I’m upset it got canceled so quickly.  But at least I own all 13 episodes on dvd.  I mean, this cast has some hot guys in it… but as the unreliable narrator, Joey’s just awesome.  At least, well, I was sold.

sawyer-lost15. Sayid, Sawyer and Boone.
Okay.  So I can’t just pick one from Lost.  I’ve stopped watching the show, but I still find these men attractive.  I think it goes back to something similar with Jack Sparrow, this literally dirty aspect to these men… for some reason the scruff and sweat make them hotter.  The only slightly weird thing is that Boone does look a lot like my friend Kyle Dean… but I will admit, Kyle Dean is an attractive man and ladies love him.  (And boys too.)  Lastly, if you haven’t see Bride and Prejudice… you should.  Especially if you are Sayid fans….

kensei6. Sylar, Adam/Kensie, Peter
Yep, from a Lost obsession to a Heroes obsession.  Adam Monroe, though arrogant and well vengeful, was awesome.  And I was definitely sadden at his pathetic death.  Seriously, they could have done better.   I only barely like Peter.  Something about him with his shirt off I guess.  And well, Sylar… he amuses me too.  And I am happy they’re trying to give him more depth.

serenity7. Captain Mal, Jayne, Zoey…
heck ALL of Serenity’s crew.
Ahh Firefly… another show that left too soon… It’s one of my favorite places to escape to, when I let my mind wander.  Anyway… new frontier.. dirty (again)… guns.  And, one big seller for me was the mixture of English and Chinese.  It was great watching it and actually understanding a handful of things.  Granted, a lot of the Chinese was slang…
Anyway.  Indeed a good show.  Indeed awesome.  And the writing was just great.  Anyway.  You’ve also got to love Jayne’s hat.  And Wash.  Who doesn’t love Wash?

steerpike_l8. Steerpike.
Okay, so he’s creepy and evil… not the first time I’ve had that on this list.  But maybe it’s just how Johnathan Rhys Meyers portrayed him… There’s a definite romantic element to Steerpike… However, I wonder if I would like him as much in the books.  I do have them — all three Gormenghast books.  Reading them is another issue.  Peake is quite the writer… long detailed prose… It’s just a bit too much for me right now.

randalgraves9. Randal Graves.
Yeah.  I don’t know why.  I’ll accredit this one to Smith’s writing.
Oh, I will say this.  Clerks I or the Animated Series only.  I’m not a huge fan of Clerks II at all.  Most of Smith’s later stuff has just been to keep pushing further — all about the shock and awe.  And well, the amazing writing from his earlier works just isn’t there.

jose10. Jose Reyes (Mets)
Okay.  So I’m a Cubbies fan… or at least I was born one.  I really don’t watch baseball all that often.. and well, I didn’t really follow it too closely this year.  I’m all for going to see a game though (which is pretty much true for any sport).  Anyway.  I noticed Reyes a while ago… and well, I cheered for the Mets for a bit… what?  He’s hot.

Anyway.  To keep this list from getting insanely long, I’ll just list the rest that I might meet this criteria:
MC Frontalot, JT, Jermaine, ok Bret too, Heath (*sigh*), and for a short time Ryan Nyquist, Mouse (Matrix) and Jason Mewes.
I’m sure there are others.  .. but I’m okay with this for now.

because we all need more nerdy love…

11 November 2008

I had a request on my YouTube channel for more pictures from the MC Frontalot concert this past weekend. And I am more than happy to oblige. However — one disclaimer: Most of my pictures are of terrible quality. Seriously. The videos are so much better.  Anyway.  Here’s what I got.  Click on the image to enlarge.

Like I said, most of these are sucktastic.  But ask and you shall receive.  (plus, I could use some more nerdy love in my life too.)

Okay.  So here are some videos from the MC Frontalot concert….

Floating Bridge - MC Frontalot

So I was trying to film another song… got distracted by the drunks for a bit at first… and then knocked over by them… this is why I wanted that damn nerf bat.

MC Frontalot partial video with YT Cracker and MC Lars


I started this midsong.. and then ran out of space on my memory card…. But it’s worth it just to watch MC Frontalot dance…

10 November 2008

This weekend, I took a break from my Wii (just purchased on Friday), and joined Sara, Adam, Dan, and Dan’s sister Susan for a night of nerdcore.

My previous experience with nerdcore has been through the wonderful and simply rad Mucca Pazza.  They might possibly be one of my favorite bands.  I’ve also gotten to know a handful of their members, and I actually play with a few of them once a month in the community reading band I’m in.

Anyway… nerdcore hip-hop is something pretty new to me.  And, well, as a young, attractive female with nerdy inclinations… why would I miss out on this?  I typically find in any nerd-related events that the numbers are in my favor as far as the gender ratios.

So I got to see Dual Core, Former Fat Boys, Whoremoans, YT Cracker, MC Lars and MC Frontalot.  It was a packed night that probably didn’t start until sometime between 11-11:30p.  I don’t think MC Frontalot started until after 2a…

FFB & Dino

I think Former Fat Boys was the act that sort of stuck out the most, as far as sort of not quite fitting in with the rest of the night…  Not sure.  It could have been style, it could have been what he rapped about, it could have just been him… Maybe he just didn’t seem nerdy enough for me.  He did how ever take off his pants, and even had a dude in a dinosaur suit come out for two songs… The dino however just walked around and occasionally threw his hands up.  I was expecting more.

Whoremoans had one song that well, I thoroughly enjoyed.  F- the Princess.  The beat was good, and song was catchy… and well… Sara and I just sort of laughed a lot during it.  Granted, we did that throughout the show.  Especially when one of Adam’s grad school friends licked Whoremoan’s man boob.  Seriously.

Anyway… Sara, Susan and I were basically just hanging out in the back (up in the seats), waiting for MC Frontalot.  Not that any of us were familiar with him…   Definitely worth waiting for.  And well… MC Frontalot is kinda hot.  Even hotter when he’s preforming.

The night was good.  The only downside was this small group of obnoxiously drunk people.  I mean, seriously, who tells the performer that you have a better tattoo than they do (though a zombie unicorn is decent)… But yeah, these drunk kids just sort of distracted from everything… The easiest way to be a giant douche at a concert is to get amazingly drunk, sing a long louder than the artist, and then assume this concert is all about you and just for you…. Personally I like to think that MC Frontalot wasn’t all that happy with at least one of them… If only I had a nerf bat with me (nerf just to avoid unnecessary lawsuits on assault and all that)…

We (including some more new friends) all went to the Pick Me Up for some post-concert food.  Being that it was about 3a or maybe later, I opted for a chai… Adam got ice cream, which I thought was silly since it is cold out.  And that’s all I’ve got for that.  … I arrived home at 5a… I could have stayed up and continued with Guitar Hero… but I was one sleepy dinosaur.  (and no, not the type of dinosaur FFB had…)
