Okay, so this is the most inconveniently timed meme/event thingy ever, but since I didn't want to let it pass with NADA, I um raided stargate-caps and I have a little appreciation of Sam Carter, Day 1 for [livejournal.com profile] womenlovefest

Sam's thread: http://womenlovefest.livejournal.com/50286.html#comments

For Day one, this is a picspam of Sam from the pilot episode, which really does a fantastic synopsis/base for the character Sam becomes as the show continues. Sam is not the first female officer in a tv show, and not even the first in a long-running tv show (Major Houlihan of MASH is before her, to name one I can think of) but she's certainly high on the list. I was a little too old when I started watching to be inspired, but still I consider Sam one of the backbone female characters of my formative years nonetheless.

Also I have at least one margarita in me. Just FYI.

Captain Doctor Samantha Carter in Children of the Gods )

So there's a trip through memory lane of a Wee Amanda Tapping. :)
Doctor Who: Curse of the Black Spot

Ok. THIS EPISODE? is crack and it makes me think crack-y thoughts.

So here, have a picspammilicious recap.

DW: Curse of the Black Pearl -- I mean, Spot. Yeah, spot )

the end.

(Is this something Who fandom would appreciate? IDEK. I'll put in on my tumblr for kicks at least. Tumblr post )

What are funnier than Crazy Charlie Sheen Quotes?

Crazy Charlie Sheen Quotes on Cat Photos, of course!

To continue the comedy theme, last night we managed to lock ourselves out of the house (both MrLiz and I managed to leave our keys inside). IN THE RAIN. *head desk*

PICSPAM of some my tumblr trucco photos )

Also, I'm a little afraid he's going to be out of work again in March, if this Fairly Legal ratings trajectory continues. Next week they won't have Royal Pains as a lead-in anymore. Really, America, Jersey Shore is not the only place to find hot guys with abs. And he's a great guy and talented, besides. *sigh*
[livejournal.com profile] sabaceanbabe requested inspirational and, ahem, anatomical studies for her art for my Big Bang, including shirtless, back and shoulder views of Trucco. And since I have NO LACK of such pictures (dude is allergic to sleeves, you know *g*), I thought y'all would appreciate this.



(There are two dozen pics behind the cut. Nothing particularly new to anyone in the fandom, but very pretty. And organized! hee)

First, Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] greycoupon! Yes, it's still the right day, at least here! :)

Second, I did a picspam for [livejournal.com profile] twelve_colonies over at [livejournal.com profile] picspammy:

Ten Favorite Things from BSG and Stargate SG-1, Side by Side
Mine is here.
And [livejournal.com profile] iwishiwerekerry (my partner-in-crime for this challenge)'s is here.

Third, this is my last night here. BOOOOO for the end of vacation!

Ok, this is probably just a me thing, but after the news broke that Brian Austin Green married Megan Fox last week in Hawaii, I went over to ONTD and buried in the thread someone had found the MOST AWWWWW pics of them. and also I wish MY honeymoon pics were that good

so cute and happy )

Admittedly I followed him first, because of TSSC, but after paying attention, I don't care what anybody says: she might not be the brightest bulb ever, but she doesn't deserve anywhere near the crap that gets flung at her (at least one article blamed her for Jonah Hex bombing. seriously). She's not out partying, unable to go two days without getting drunk, and instead they hang out at home and she's been his son's mom for years now. I hope those two hotties make it work.

So here is my promised picspam from that CINEMATIC MASTERPIECE knows as... Knight Club.

It is a tragic tale of the rise of an unemployed actor, who by riding the coat-tails of the rich and famous gets to have everything he ever wanted until he makes the wrong choice because he is as dumb as a stack of bricks and he gets killed. oops. SPOILER!

However, I only care about it because our Tragic Hero has a friend played by Michael Trucco.
The movie opens with their acting class.

(large caps follow, and they break my layout so here's the Format Light link.)

Derek - the only part worth watching! )

Sadly you can see a glimmer of a better movie inside this one, trying to get out. I have no idea if it was one, but it smacks of being a film school senior project that managed to scrounge up some financing.

Anyway, it can't be all bad when there are screencaps like that, right? :D

Last night, we went to their concert, with openers Shiny Toy Guns and Neon Trees.


pics, vids, commentary,and other stuff under here )

and, FYI, amazon has 30 Second to Mars -- 'This is War', on download for $5. It's frakking epic.

It was amusing watching this with hubby, who actually got SO disgusted by Castle's behavior he turned it off at about the 40 min mark. I believe his exact words were, "He's acting like a fourteen year old." Hubby couldn't care less about UST or My TV Boyfriend, so it wasn't my personal preferences coloring it either. I thought the situation was funny since it was played so broadly, but apparently hubby was, um, appalled by the lack of maturity. (MrLiz also can't understand why no one's shot Patrick Jane on the Mentalist yet, btw, so he's pretty consistent about it).

I - of course - continued to watch. Because I HAD PHOTOS AND I WANTED TO SEE HOW IT HAPPENED, DAMN IT.

(Warning of several, large-ish pics under the cut. Beckett/Demming. Oh yes. *g* )

So here are the promo photos )

And because today is apparently Trucco Picspam day, there are also lovely pics of him in "V" over at [livejournal.com profile] cujoy's place.

Speaking of Castle/V --- the epic is now a very scary 15K words. WTF BRAIN? It was a bit strange to watch last night, thinking he's secretly a V, and not actually be jossed in any way... :)
I have a 500 word essay for the LOST forum all in draft. Just waiting to post. It's tentatively titled "Why Jacob is good, or at least way better than the alternative, and all you haters should shut up already."

Or, y'know, not EXACTLY those words. But kinda. *g* It's inconvenient getting suddenly all fangirly over a character who's DEAD. (not that it's slowing him down all that much, but still. oops.)

It's lame, but I think I'm just a sucker for hot secondary characters who get badass dramatic entrances -- Anders comes in holding a gun in Kara's face, Castiel arrives like a storm in the barn, and Jacob.....

oh heck, I'm just gonna do it.


His predecessor of hot badass dramatic entrances was Richard, who had this scene in Dharmaville that made me love him... I thought he was interesting before that, but I wasn't all "ooooh, I need MOAR!" until THIS scene. you know the one )
Okay, I totally need to STOP THINKING ABOUT this and do something productive.

We saw Public Enemies tonight.


If you liked Heat or any other Michael Mann film, if you like film noir (which it's not, not really, but they're sort of related), if you like Johnny Depp or Christian Bale, or crime thrillers, or men in fedoras with BIG FUCKING GUNS SHOOTING THINGS AND ROBBING BANKS, or period pieces, it is so well done. (if you like none of those things? um, possibly not for you)

And okay, the chronology is messed up, so do not take it as history, it's not. But still, it takes advantage of the real history to tell a concise story of Dillinger's crime spree, the girlfriend who rode with him, and how he was brought down (and also the simultaneous rise of the FBI and the spread of nationwide crime syndicates as side stories).

The accents are amusing to track - there's CB channeling Purvis' southern, David Wenham doing American, and Marion Cotillard pretending, well, less of an accent than she has in real life.

But you know what? I have something better. I have pretty pics from the movie.

Brought to you by the Letter R!

Not dial-up friendly.

Ten things I like that begin with R )

I'm sure I'll think of twelve other things the instant I post, but this is what occurred to me.

If you want a letter, let me know.

Since Michael Trucco is locked in a battle for survival in a Hottie Survival Poll, I thought I should, y'know, campaign on his behalf.



There. Now you can vote anyone else off, with a clean conscience. :)

Speaking of Sam, sort of, I posted Sam/Kara silly AU porn last Friday, if you missed it!

ETA: be sure to scan down the comments as well, since some people apparently need to see even MORE pictures before they are convinced!
Here are the non-kidlet pics from our trip to the bay area, a few scenic ones that I like.

five good-sized pics )
Kidlet is doing a project of making a space shuttle, so I had to go find some pics. I found some rather nifty ones, of views you don't often see.

So here, have some pics.


so, there, a non-fannish picspam. Unless you're a fan of space and the space program and, y'know, real people doing real shit in real space.

OMG. The "Faith" Deleted scene at Best Buy (which is apparently not on the DVDs according to Sitrep) features Sam being all angsty on the baseship. (http://images.bestbuy.com/BestBuy_US/en_US/images/abn/2008/mm/audvid/battlestar_faith.mp4 (RIGHT-CLICK, SAVE-AS)

ETA: I've now put it up at Megaupload.

If you can't watch it, why HERE ARE A FEW SCREENCAPS. (and not awesome clarity, but it's a low-res QT file)


oh Sammy why you gotta break my heart EVEN MORE? )



In attempting to set the dvr for the awesome cracky goodness of "Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon" on SciFi, I made the following discovery:

My SciFi HighDef Channel is the EASTERN feed. While this sort of sucked for my plans to dvr the movie, it ALSO means that I will be able to watch BSG with EVERYONE ELSE in January! :D:D:D:D

(or at least only an hour or so later rather than the eternity later I've been used to)

Here, have some Lost Treasure photos of JR Bourne because he's awesome even in schlocky movies )

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
And here's a clone of Tahmoh for you!

Here's A PICPAM showing you the fine attributes of your coming gift (Tahmoh clone, Helo version) )

We here at Clones R Us want to apologize for the delay. There have been some unexpected ... difficulties with the cloning process, so we hope this will tide you over until your gift is ready! :D

Since I suck at icons and drabbles, I figured you'd at least enjoy a


It's sort of a random collection and certainly nothing you haven't seen before, but enjoy!

follow me to the hotness - others are certainly welcome to peek at the prezzies )

mmm... what was I saying?...
