zimshan: (SPN - Crazy Circles)
In other news....

TWO INSTA-RECS:
FIC: ’Live For Small Horizons‘ [SPN S6, Dean, Sam, gen] by [livejournal.com profile] dotfic - “If Dean goes down, there's no one else who knows it all.” - This fic includes what might be my favorite fic moment ever in the history of fic. You think I‘m kidding, but no, really, I am not. It’s barely over 1k, yet by the end, I was BAWLING my eyeballs out. This is seriously some kind of record. The moment is seared into my skull forever. I’m seriously going to cry myself to sleep every night for the rest of the week over this. THAT is the kind of fic this is.

VID: ’Right Wing Radio Duck‘ [Donald Duck, political remix] - by way of laurashapiro - Donald Duck discovers Glenn Beck’s radio show, with razor-sharp, biting political commentary. This is AMAZING. I am seriously FLABBERGASTED by how amazing this is. That is how amazing it is. The amount of work put into this for it to work as slick and FLAWLESS as it does hurts my brain to even think about. Video from over 50 different Disney cartoons. Audio sliced from Beck’s shows. And the main commentary point that he builds up so well, and slams home so perfectly by the end. UGH, IT IS BRILLIANT. I want to send this to everyone I know.

AND A NOSTALGIC TEAR...
[livejournal.com profile] crackers4jenn reminded me that today is TEN YEARS since ‘Fool for Love’ aired. WHICH BY THE WAY is kinda the whole reason I exist on LJ in the first place. The last five minutes single-handedly rejuvenated my Buffy love, which four years later brought me HERE! Gosh I can’t believe that was ten years ago. I feel like it was just yesterday my 13 year old self came home early from a meeting and RAN to the tv to catch whatever bit of the Buffy ep I could. Where the hell does the time go. I feel old.
zimshan: (Obama - Action)
For the record, I blame this all on the complete LACK of Obama vidding in the world. We've gotta do something about that.

In honor of Dr. King Day, and Obama's Inauguration Weekend, I give you...

QUICK NOTES )

This is simply one perspective of the movement, seen through my own eyes. There are still thousands of other perspectives still waiting to be told. And I encourage you all out there, please do so!

zimshan: (SPN - Goofy Times)
Anyone looking to get pumped up for the SPN Finale? Don't walk, RUN to [livejournal.com profile] bellanut's RECAP OF SPN SEASON THREE. It is quite literally the PICSPAM TO END ALL PICSPAMS. I'm not even joking, there's three parts to that baby!



Some songs to share that I've been listening to all morning in preparation for the INEVITABLE WINCHESTER DOOM:
- Back Door Slam - "Come Home" [This blues rock number is just my own personal theme song for Sam in Mystery Spot: "I went to hell today, said you're gone for good, I would get you back, if only I could"]
- Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - "Lien on Your Dreams" [Basically I feel like all of Baby 81 was just WRITTEN for SPN S3, it's so perfectly S3 Sam to a 'T'. But this one especially: "But it hurts and what’s worse, There’s no way to reverse, When your mind wants to start, Pulling you apart]
- Alice in Chains - "Don't Follow" [This song is just SO friggin' GORGEOUS, I would LOVE to vid this as Dean POV to Sam, because oh man, it so is, but I refuse. Really. I do. Not happening. *shifty eyes* But just LOOK at this: "Hey, I aint never coming Home/Hey, Ill just wander my Own road/Hey, I cant meet you here tomorrow/Say goodbye dont follow"]
- Fuel - "Innocent" [THIS one too, oh man, this one too. KILLS ME: "Never did we know/What the future would hold/That we'd be bought and sold/We were innocent"]
- Back Door Slam - "Stay" [This blues acoustic is just GORGEOUS, and totally too sullen and complacent for Sam, but I love it anyway]
- Aerosmith - "Dream On" [Everyone knows this one I'm sure, but for some reason, it's like a last minute celebration through the tears kind of song for me, with the ratcheting ending just always bringing Last-Moment-Crazed-To-Save-Dean!Sam to my mind.]

OH GEEZE, and Black Rebel's 'Shuffle Your Feet' just came on. ["Time won't save our souls, Time won't save my soul, There are things a'going down, Nothing seems to feel the same, nothing seems to go my way, who knows if I'll see you again".] SHEESH, Itunes, way to join forces to kill me. Might as well go ahead and take that one too, if you don't already have it.



I know, I haven't had alot of time to share in the squee this season. Or be around...hardly at all. Especially this past fall.

And I've realized that the few times I HAVE been able to post about the season, I haven't been to kind about it. I guess I've had more of an inclination to post when I've gotta vent more than just the normal squee. Though I'll admit for a lot of the season, I just wasn't feeling it the same as in the past.

But mainly, there's kind of an explanation for that. The short version: It's called SCHOOL. Which I've detailed before. But it's complicated by this little thing called SIDES. Because I am a moron of multiply crazy ideas, among other things...

In case anyone gives a crap about my MIA this season... )

BUT FAST FORWARD TO NOW. Because I've been spending most of my last pseudo-studying/procrastination week rewatching this season to ID and rip music scores (because nothing sets off my score!obsession more than some good ol' philosophy hatred, of course) and I've come to a couple ABSOLUTELY STARTLING conclusions about this season. Since I'm staking out the night now waiting to watch the finale, I thought I'd share. Since I'm sure you're all just DYING to know. ;)

Top Ten ABSOLUTELY STARTLING changed sentiments/discoveries/conclusions I have found on my SEASON THREE REWATCH. I just know you're all ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEATS to find out. )

I've gotta wait until morning to see the finale, so in the meantime, help me stake out the night until finale time! I've hardly gotten to see everyone's thoughts this season, what did you guys think of it all said and done? Still mourning S2, frustrated by the writers? Any of your sentiments about the season change as the season went on? Or retrospectively?

ETA: OMG, AND THEN I SPENT THE LAST SEVEN MINUTES CRACKING THE FUCK UP WITH JON STEWART. In case you have the capacity to think of something OTHER than the Winchesters today, ENJOY:
