So I'm offering myself up for the Vividcon Auction this year, for the first time ever. Because I'm crazy, I'm offering up a LOT of fandoms including a ton of TV. The full list is under the cut:

Full list of fandoms and what exactly I'm offering )

You can bid on me here. The auction closes on 3/30/13 at 11:59PM Eastern Time but don't wait to the very last second as the server may not be able to handle it. I am looking forward to vidding something from this list! If you have any questions at all, feel free to ask me. I basically just want to vid a fandom I like so I'm open to a lot. There's 5 other amazing vidders on that list too so if I'm not offering something you want, check out the others as they might offer it!

Besides that, just kind of tired of life beating me down right now. I wish I could fast forward to the time when I have a job I like and hopefully am in a relationship. I love Lost Girl a LOT but sometimes it's just hard watching Bo/Lauren when I want that so much.

TV I'm Watching [Mar. 20th, 2013|07:41 am]

So I keep seeing the Books I'm Reading meme every Wednesday and I always feel left out because I basically am only rereading the Game of Thrones books right now (with lots of highlights!). But then I thought, I should just do it for TV since I'm trying to get through a lot of TV right now and I'm really bad at writing out my thoughts except sometimes on Twitter. So here is the book meme revised for TV:

What I've just finished: Bunheads! I really loved it and it filled the Gilmore Girls shaped hole in my heart. Michelle is such an amazing main character and cracks me up so much while having a bunch of issues that just make her ridiculously endearing. The show has so many cross generational relationships that are all wonderful, I particularly love Fanny and Michelle and the hilarious dialogue they have together. Initially Sasha rubbed me the wrong way but now I adore her the most of all the kids and her relationship Michelle is SO cute (and sometimes flirty heh). I love that the whole show is basically about women with a few guys as love interests and that once again, Amy has created a quirky small town full of fun characters including Gilmore Girls very own PARIS AND KIRK! I highly recommend it especially if you enjoy crackling dialogue, just give it 4-5 episodes to really grow on you as I do think GG had a stronger opening.

What I'm watching: Currently my go to watch show is Lost Girl! I have [personal profile] kerithwyn to thank for it as I had heard about the show before from Escapade (mostly [personal profile] killabeez) and I just did not want to watch another episodic show so I didn't watch. But this year during the Escapade Pimping panel, [personal profile] kerithwyn tried the hard sell on me: queer main character, sex positive, an ACTUAL lesbian relationship and a serial arc in S2 and I was intrigued. So I decided to give it a try while I'm clipping which helps me get past the episodic plots. So in the first episode there's this scene between Bo and Lauren and I'm just like, wow they have some intense chemistry, I ship it...turns out they're one of the main couples on the show, SCORE!! So yeah, by the 5th? episode or so, I'm hooked. Like so many others, Kenzi is my favorite and is just the Stiles of the show: hilarious, awesome and a very physical character. But I looove Bo and her power and OMG I OTP Bo/Lauren SO HARD!!! ACTUAL KISSING AND SEX YAY!!! This may be my favorite canon lesbian relationship ever, we'll see. It's just so fun to root for a queer couple that actually happens as much as I love Swan Queen, canon queer couples are my favorite always.

Other things I'm watching: Vikings which a lot of people on Twitter are talking about. I'm still not totally sold on it, I haven't connected with any of the characters yet and it needs a lot more women characters being awesome. But I LOVE the scenery and I think the concept is awesome because I've always wanted more history based TV shows as it makes it a lot more fun to learn about (yes I know it's not completely accurate). It's a little bit like Game of Thrones which is helping during the last two weeks before the Game of Thrones premiere (!!!). Other than that, I'm watching the usual suspects weekly: How I Met Your Mother, Cougar Town, The Mindy Project, Modern Family, Parks & Recreation, Glee, The Office, The Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, Shameless (SO much love) and Girls (a bit behind though).

What I'm going to watch next: I started American Horror Story while clipping and I'm to around 105 so once I'm done with Lost Girl I'll go back to that. I started watching Parenthood too and will get back to that after Lost Girl (I am in must watch mode for it). The other two shows I'd like to get to is The Hour and finish watching Justified (still on 109ish there).

For other TV fans like me who sometimes have a little trouble keeping track of what they're watching, I found this cool website that lets you keep track of all the TV you've watched (including episodes) and gives you a calendar of shows that are on specific days as well as a great resource for seeing what shows you might want to watch. It's called Episode Calendar and the interface is the most beautiful and complete I've seen. Plus the guy running it is working on iOS and Android apps! I really love it so far.
