pinhole cameras and half a rainbow  
I think I've ranted before about the predominance of gangsta rap on Irish radio. (Gangsta rap is not so much a musical genre as a term of deep hate made up in my brain. In case you were wondering.) The upshot of this is that I've never heard Panic at the Disco on the radio before this week.

This week when I was in theatre, watching a circumcision, and bopping along (discreetly!) to Nine in the Afternoon.

I don't even know, you guys, but it seemed ... appropriate?

Apropos of this - possibly - came the urge to recast Panic in various guises. I already have a doctor!AU on the go, which will be the most ridiculous shameful thing EVER, but the world also needs:

- a Latter Days AU. C'mon! Brendon the Mormon as - a Mormon! It'd be hard to buy Ryan or Spencer in the player's character, though. Maybe Jon. In short shorts. My mind just went to a very bad place.

- there was this yaoi manga about a boy who was psychic and 'saw' the man of his dreams - or at least his deflowering - well before he met him. And then when he did meet him, he was cross, because ... I forget why, actually. But Ryan as a visionary and Brendon the clutz as the object of his vision! It would be too, too hilarious.

Regarding Gossip Girls: darling Blair appears to have faceplanted her bronzer. It is le unattractive.

Also - and this is only something I've come to appreciate as I've grown old(er) - if a guy in my class was dating a high school girl, I'd find it unforgivably ooky. Just saying. Meg Cabot, also looking at you.

I feel delicately abraded after my last three weeks on surgical rotation. One more week to go, one upgrade to sandpaper, a few more dozen times of being told I'm stupid ... wait, did I say week? Sorry. This is the rest of my LIFE.

At least when other people are stymied by the lack of life in their jobs, they get paid for it.

I TRUFAX CRIED WHEN I WATCHED IT THE FIRST TIME. (What? It is deeply moving and believable!) But really, the only person I could cast as jockstrap-player is Gabe, and. Well. Shipping Brendon and Gabe? What?

Still, in embryo it is a wonderful idea.

I may cry even when I rewatch it.

CRY FROM LAUGHING SO MUCH, THAT IS. maybe


GOD I love the scene where Christian cuts his ass on the garden hose thing and then whatshiface Mormon has to put a band-aid on it and then there is the CONFESSION OF LOVE AND GAYNESS. AHHAHAHHA BEST EVER. EVERY SCENE IN THAT MOVIE IS THE BEST EVER.

And yeah, I'd been thinking Gabe... it would be a weird pairing but WHO CARES? WHO EVEN CARES WHEN BRENDON WOULD BE CAREFULLY PATTING A BAND-AID DOWN ON GABE'S ASS AND THEN MAKING DUMB JOKES ABOUT YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN!?

NONONONO THE BIT WHERE MORMON GUY GETS ALL SOULFUL ABOUT THE VALIANTLY BEATING HEART! STAUNCHLY IGNORING THINGS THAT MIGHT BE VALIANTLY BEATING RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIS NOSE!

I can see it SO CLEARLY. Damn you. I have too much else to study write.

THE WHOLE MOVIE IS THE BEST PART. ESPECIALLY WHERE CHRISTIAN SEES THAT MORMONDUDE IS STILL ALIVE AND DROPS HIS TRAY. I ALWAYS WATCH THAT PART OVER AGAIN.

Irrelevantly, there is some kind of jumping spider on my bed. A SPIDER. ON MY BED. I don't think it's venomous, but it's the principle of the thing. And it JUMPS. It's freaking me out. I have to SLEEP in that bed, you know?

OH MAN I LOVE THAT BIT TOO. IT MAKES ME ALL GOOEY.

Your spider has skills!

Our flat is infested with them. I tend to pretend I never saw them and I think they pretend not to see me; it's a partnership that works well.

So much yes to that doctor!AU! :D

But, omg, that movie! So. Bad. I'd heard, from several people, that it was good, then I saw it and was like... :\ Just, no.

I think you could definitely write a totally better version! But please don't use Gabe :( Jon is so so good though!

Ugh, I read about 12(?) of the books, and was over it by the time the tv show came out, but I watched a few episodes and was disappointed.

Hee, yes. Ooky.

It's one of the best gay films I've seen, which isn't saying much. I love the resturanteur character, and Mormon Dude's metaphor about cartoons, and after that I'm not asking for much.

I picked up one GG book and was horrified. I love the show, though. NYC OC FTW.

But seriously ... 'I'm a lord.' Who SAYS that?

Meh, I guess I just didn't connect? It just seemed a bit weird. I actually bought it 'cos I couldn't find it anywhere, so maybe I'll give it another go. Yeah, I haven't seen any other gay films.

I started reading them when they first came out, and I was pretty young, 12/13? and though they were omg, so great! But then there were like, over ten and nothing much had happened, or nothing that I wanted to happen, or something? Ugh, it's been a while. ;)

And, huh? Am I forgetting something?

And, sorry it took so long to reply. ;D

That's kind of my standard for good films, though. I'm not very deep. And I hate the Coen brothers.

I picked one up, about Blair's mom being pregnant and redecorating her room and I was like, THESE PEOPLE ARE AWFUL.

Blair meets some guy who turns out to be a duke. (In which case, he should have said 'I'm a duke.') It was just ... wrong. 'I'm Lord X'. Not 'I'm a lord.' LOL DORK.

Ah yeah, it can be very over the top.

Ohhh. ;)

I loved that movie. Not as much as I loved Bishonen, but I still loved it!
every Starbucks should have a polar bear: Art: scarfscoradh on September 26th, 2008 03:39 pm (UTC)
Me too! But I've never seen Bishonen, to compare.
Sereniaserenia on September 26th, 2008 11:30 pm (UTC)
It was lovely, but so sad. I think I downloaded it from aarinfantasy. It's from Hong Kong. There's something about Asian gay movies, though - most of them end miserably. Makes me wonder if there's a law about it! Bishonen, Boys' Love, Gohatto - none of them ended up with a happy get together!

It was mainly a shoutout to the universe that someone ELSE should write it. Which doesn't look likely. *iz doleful*

ONE MORE WEEK ARG I WONDER IF I CAN CONTRACT A TEMPORARY NONFATAL ILLNESS?
