Yesterday, I read this article from a Canadian blogger about why local arts scenes are dying and posted about it on my Facebook (yeah, we've already established that I don't give much of a shit about fandom-RL exclusivity -- add me up there if you feel the same way! I've already been friends with a handful of LJ and Tumblr folks for at least a year lol), and I didn't realise I had so many feelings about our local arts scene until I started discussing it with various friends afterwards.

Which is a little weird because I've been into the arts since I was very little? Into it meaning I've been exposed to musicales since age five (Les Miserables was my first love) and grew up with a former-singer-performer mother and enjoyed doodling since god-knows-when, but never really did much to hone it--with the exception of being active in school plays during elementary and high school, and taking a lot of performance arts classes and doing a lot of video assignments at uni (I was a Communications/Media Arts student *shrug*). So I guess part of the feelings also came from my frustrations with not being able to fully pursue anything creative? So now I'm living vicariously through my artist friends by going to their events and pimping them out, while I struggle to help my family get out of the financial shit we're in on the side even though I can never say that I'd ever be happy with corporate life.

Heh, yeah. I think this pretty much replaces what fandom life I used to have. An existential crisis.

This is my first day off from EVERYTHING (work, school & home--I stay with my grandparents on weekdays and only go home to my family for the weekend but instead of that being relaxing, it's usually quite hectic because being around my mum can be quite a challenge that way; still love her though) in a while, and I'm more stressed out than usual. I can name two reasons behind this:

One, even though I'm not in the office or at school, I still can't help but think of homework and my deliverables for the following week. The school stuff is all group work, but I'm the leader for one project and I--why. And then so much pending shit for the day job. Plus freelance, because I need money, being the family cash cow and all.

Two, I'd missed out on two activities that I really wanted to join this weekend. Was invited to climb Mt Pulag (one of the most famous places to climb in the Philippines) some time ago but immediately had to decline because I knew the trip was going to fall on the week of my period. And true enough, I got my period last Wednesday-- so even though one person kept trying to convince me to go up until the last minute, I really couldn't say yes. Then as luck would have it, my body decides to stop bleeding last night, the very night everyone left Manila for the trip. It would have still been fine and dandy because Stars is playing here tonight and I've been told that they are truly wonderful live. But. Tickets sold out the moment I managed to have enough money to buy one. So.

I'm just going to do freelance stuff instead. And then go home to my Mum in the evening. Home-made meals are always the best.

--

In lighter news, IHOP opened here yesterday so I went to check it out with friends for our weekly session of Fitness Eating (usually scheduled on Thursday but we made an exception this week because Valentine's crowd dnw 8D), where we are constantly left to suspect whether all the restaurants we dine in spike their food and drinks with marijuana--or wonder if it's really just us. ABS (A Big Stomach) galore.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] claudine has set up a Merlin/Arthur rec blog on Tumblr and made a slave fic rec list for those of you who are into that. I know I am. ;)

Also, also! Let me pimp out these songs my very good friend wrote when he was still at uni and recently re-uploaded for easier enjoyment. They're quite lovely in that feel-good, let's-relax-and-remember-the-love-we-had-and-lost sort of way. OOPS I MERLIN/ARTHUR FEELS'D ALL OVER THE FLOOR AGAIN.

Oh, and I forgot to mention last week I saw Potted Potter after a friend gave me free tickets to the show. That was a lot of fun. I got "sorted" into Slytherin for the Quidditch portion, rightfully so. *beams with pride*

RIGHT.

ravyn_ashling: (LE SHOQUE!)
*waves to new friends* Hi guys! First thing you should know about me: when I say I'm going to post an entry the following day, chances are life is going to get in my way and I won't get to do it until nearly a month later. Now that that's out of the way, um. INTRODUCTIONS!

Hi. I'm Ginny. I've been on LJ since 2003 and been a fandom junkie for even longer (my first being Harry Potter and latest being Merlin), and my fandom contributions usually comprise of fan art. These days I'm more active on Twitter (please don't let the love songs for the Pope drive you away; stuff like that only happens when I'm sleep-deprived, which is an honest-to-god (did you see what I did there 8D) very rare occurrence these days because I usually pass out the minute my knees touch the bed), Tumblr (yeeah that's my face; art tumblr is this way), and Facebook (yes I treat that as a fandom space at times as well. No, idgaf about anonymity anymore tbh), but I'm serious about rekindling my relationship with LJ because, well, I love this fucking site. Spambots and all (not really, not the spambots, no).

During the period that I had not updated here, I'd been mostly busy with RL: working at my day job as a graphic designer (I got promoted to marketing officer for creatives and digital marketing recently), going to graduate school (who needs a night life when you've got classes!), trying to survive with what little money is left with me after I've handed most of it over to my mum (Asian ProblemsTM? But for those who have been following me before, hi, my dad has a job again :'D), and barely managing to socialise but doing so regularly anyway. (Friends, y'know. I like them.)

And parenthetical interjections, evidently.

Oh, I've also finally decided to ~follow my dreams~ and go back to acting, aaand I'm in this movie. It's a stoner film that is actually an indie feature about friendships and growing up. I think it's showing this March. Also this girl is seriously hot (bit NSFW). She's not in the film but we're sharing a stylist. Hee.

Fandomwise, at the moment, I have [livejournal.com profile] merlinreversebb and [livejournal.com profile] drawmelot's Creatures Project. But after these two activities and after I've finally given the people I owe the fan art I've promised them (GINNY PLZ), I'm most likely going to lie low and steer clear from the fandom front for a while and just rant about stupid kids with [livejournal.com profile] claudine as we rock about in our chairs on our creaky porch (Old Ladies Club ftw). And probably keep sleeping loads. (OLD LADIES CLUUUUBBBBBB!!!1)

NOW. TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELVES, BABES--your favourite ships, the things you enjoy doing for and outside fandom, your favourite tropes, things that make you happy, things that make you sadface, your favourite bands, your favourite song by your favourite band which reminds you of your favourite ship, was it sunny or cloudy or rainy or snowy in your part of the world today, what kind of sloth would you be if you'd magically turned into one right now (I would be fabulous), etc etc etc--WHILE I PASS OUT AND REMAIN SO UNTIL I HAVE TO PANIC ABOUT GOING TO WORK AGAIN.

Old friends, go do it too. Or simply tell me, how are youuuuuuu? ILUs.


ETA. I like this new update page. It's very nifty. 8D


MERLIN WATER U DOIN OAO

It is nearly 4AM on a Hell Week Night(?), and I am sitting here loading One Direction video silliness because I have just spent a little over six hours exhausting my brain and doing seemingly serious but actually pretentious (or is it the other way around?) quote-smart-end-quote person things and sometimes you just need a little bit of fluffy hair and stupid horse face and pseudo hipster assfuckery, plus the most adorable melodic choking disguised as actual singing and I didn't know you called that game "leap frog" in the US and the UK--we call it "leap cow" (luksong-baka) here, though I have a feeling they really wanted to use "carabao" instead because NATIONAL ANIMAL--plus some delicious facial bone structure in your life. Also Irish thugs. And that one that reminds me of Zac Efron, he's lovely too.

Staying at purely lurking status here, though, because. Been there, done that, etc etc etc. I absolutely loved my time in boyband RPF fandom and I learned many a fucking amazing life-changing thing during those two-three years and made such fantastic friends that drove me to be constantly creative and draw all the boys in love and with puppies as their children and, oh god, I tinhatted so hard as a teenager and it was glorious and wonderful and all that hard disk space crumbling as each week passed by... GOOD TIMES. Until it ended and America and--this icon still PAINS me when I see it, okay?

Also I'm giving myself some space from Teen Wolf fandom. Just a bit for the time being. Because Jeff Davis is starting to give me a Ryan Murphy in Glee kind of feeling. Idk, idk. Just a bit. I probably just need it so I can focus on finishing my [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb piece(s). My author partner sent me their fic today and it's very lovely~ the kind that has feelings and easy-flowing dialogues and and stuff.

Oh, LJ. I love how I can easily express myself when I'm not myself or too much of myself, a hypersensitized version if you please, without having to deal with, uh, too much publicity here. I like you, LJ. And parts of that fourth wall back, please. I just realised I might not be overly fond of it being taken away after all, Communication nerd or no.

No. No links and no sense of organization here (more so than usual anyway), ehe, because BRAIN SEEPING OUT OF MY EARS, but I developed a new skill today! :D Sleeping for two minutes every five minutes until the sleepies go away and you've programmed yourself into auto-pilot instead. Huzzah.
ravyn_ashling: (bbs)


Hooopefully not literally in mine, but a lot of people from other cities are probably dealing with shit water flooding their premises right now. So not cool, weather. You're not even a low-pressure area.

It's times like these that make me smug about being glad I'm a leather boots type of person.

Anyway, because of this, classes have been cancelled tomorrow. I haven't been to class in for two weeks now because of the weather, which probably means we'll be sacrificing our term break to make up for things. Now that I'm no longer an undergraduate kid, I don't mind so much. I'll still be going to work after all, so no big diff either way.

Pah, well. Internet stick's finally, finally cooperating with me, and I now have Political Animals episode 3 successfully downloaded (didn't even make it halfway when I streamed it earlier), so! Uh, live squee posts are usually [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate's thing, but I just have to say

TJ saying, "I love you mama," and just calling Elaine "Mama" really, makes me iuewoupgoyusagiryyaeuoeriueioueotioerwdfgkjreiogwupruperuetrieioeru ;o;

I'm so glad they're giving us more backstory about him this ep. I was starting to get pretty fed up with his shit last week, though I knew I was being unfair because there were reasons behind it. It's good to see more of those reasons now.

And I like that one of those reasons is blonde. FOR REASONS, K.


UGH ELAINE IDK WHY EVERYTHING YOU DO TURNS ME ON BUT UGH

Kind of glad for Georgia that she's starting to be a bit more aggressive, but then again I never really liked aggression. Also, oh no, Annie D:

Nope, scratch that. I like the way this girl plays.


... I love everyone in this bar family. Bud! ;_;

Paralleeeeeeeeeeeeeeels.

^ That was me failing to geek with words over pretentious film minor stuff, but my heart is fucking breaking, really. UGH I LOVE THIS SHOW.


Also, I'm leaving the live squee to Mirai, as I should have. This has been Ginny, high from paracetamol (how the fuck), signing off.



Fuck. I wish worked would be cancelled, too. Ha.

It's been Stormaggedon here in the Philippines for the past... week? Weeks? and I have spent this one so far this way:
  • Monday | went on leave for fear of dying from flying roofs and falling tree trunks; then it turned out that the typhoon had already subsided in the Metro, and i beat myself up over having wasted my leave that way. Dad (who normally discourages going on a leave for reasons that are not near-paralytic illness) said not to fret about it, though, since it was raining like a fucking deadly thing on our side of the country so I was eventually able to enjoy my rest day in peace. Relatively.
  • Tuesday | took advantage of the fairly decent weather and finally submitted my scholarship application for grad school--at super speed over lunch. *FINGERS CROSSED* Went to dinner with Potthead friends to celebrate Harry P's 32nd birthday, had an encounter with an idiot cab driver on the way home, and ended up walking the whole kilometer to the train station instead. Instant exercise! Watched the latest episode of Teen Wolf, and flailed and cried inside.
  • Wednesday | Fucking. Overslept. Thanks, Stiles.
    Thursday morning - present time | Celebrating "Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa (Month of the National Language)" with friends by speaking purely in Filipino (including non-English-based slang) on Plurk and having a good, hearty, side-splitting laugh about it. We're giving [livejournal.com profile] aesires til sundown before she cracks from the challenge, and starts spouting English again and nothing but Filipino curses instead. (Most Filipinos have gotten so used to mixing the national language with English that it has become extremely difficult to keep speaking in pure Filipino while keeping a straight face.)

Tonight I'll be seeing Brave with a couple of said friends. Excite! :D Meridaaaaa. Can't wait to love youuuuu ♥


Speaking of Clint and Natasha's lovechild, I've been encountering a lot of wank over the upcoming (is it still apt to call it 'upcoming' if it's still about two years away?) Winter Soldier movie lately, a lot of it from people who are afraid that Bucky Barnes will bring in the "ruin" of the Clint/Natasha and Steve/Tony ships, and this just... bothers me. This post pretty much sums up what I feel about it and, as the OP writes about as well, the frustration of Black Widow fans over Natasha not getting her own movie before Bucky.

Basically, (1) I'm with the people in support of more female and POC leads in superhero movies, but I refuse to do this by shitting on characters that actually have a very interesting arc and especially whom I have grown to love; (2) I think ship wars are stupid and pointless, and I'm just going to my corner and enjoy my Avengers love in peace with people who are in the fandom for the love and fun as well, okay? Okay.



ANYWAY. More pleasant stuff: This Teen Wolf meta about the classical elements in the show, and how next season could just be the year of Stiles makes me miss being in lit class at uni; and this spoken word performance about the expectations and realities of love makes me miss performance lit class like endlessly burning. Why did I decide to do a business-related post-grad again? ;_;


Hey guys, heeeeyyy! ♥

Nearly everyone on my f-list is watching the Teen's Choice Awards because of Teen Wolf, and lamenting about how their lives have come to this. Had I been home instead of work right now--and also not currently preoccupied with excitement for Political Animals ep. 2--I would be watching that as well. I think they're airing it live on FOX Cable.

Anyway, please let me know if Tumblr wins, because- HA.

Today I had my marketing midterm exam, which we checked in class immediately as if we were high school kids who just finished a pop quiz, and guess who got one of the top marks (when more than half of the class failed ._.)? :D At least I don't suck at one thing.

Still pretty *meh* about what I did with my paper, though, and I'm conditioning myself for the possibility of getting a 3.0 for it, but I'm looking forward to when we will be discussing personal branding and positioning more extensively during our make-up class on Thursday. I seriously need all the lessons on this shit.

Might miss the Batman: TDK Rises premiere, though. :( Hopefully I can drag someone to watch the last full show with me, and I will promise not to fall asleep (it's fucking Batman, so ofc--NEVER!!) like I had when I saw Magic Mike last night with a friend. To quote [livejournal.com profile] tristantrakand: A for abs and asses, D for everything else, that movie. I'm falling asleep just thinking about it!

Anyway. My Teen Wolf download is taking its sweet time completing, so let's talk about this instead, yeah?


(x)


Because, mother without a soul, what is that body even? It really pains me that I can't touch that right now. D8

Suddenly very, very, very hungry.

Right. Who else has watched the Political Animals pilot? I know [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate has and we've flailed at each others faces already, but everyone else out there who has, COME TALK TO MEEEEEE.

No, actually, wait a few more hours. I'm currently heavily caught up in writing about what makes me awesome for my midterm paper, and wow what more can a narcissistic bitch want, yeah? YEAH, NO, IT'S FUCKING HARD. Especially when you're still struggling with confidence issues and that constant nagging voice at the back of your head that tells you you're fucking mediocre and you'll never make a name for yourself, coupled with evidence irl where you get rejected for 95% of the jobs you apply for and can't even be trusted to with cel shading colouring jobs, seriously what the fuck even beginners can do that.

But, hey, I actually have some pretty neat progress with it so far! So, uh, I'll just log off again until I finish everything, and I'll talk to you all later, yeah? About Political Animals (!!) and tonight's Teen Wolf and SDCC and Merlin S5 and all the shiny things I've seen online so far--and maybe also this face:

I was supposed to watch The Amazing Spider-Man with friends today (Thor's Day Nights are Rainy Nights are Movie Date Nights), but I got caught up in worrying over my coursework which I had thought would all be due by Tuesday next week (a long-ass assignment and a longer-ass midterm paper) so I decided to stay at home to work on those instead.

Only to find out that the deadlines for each requirement have been moved accordingly.

Which resulted to me not working on any of them at all, and going crazy with a Filipino-themed Avengers meme on Facebook instead. (Apologies to the non-Filipinos I'm friends with there. I can'--puns-- I'm so weak. If anything, it probably annoys my fellow Filipinos more.

(I still wish you could understand the language, though. My comedic genius makes this pale in comparison.

(...wait, what, apparently they shot a scene with Steve visiting Peggy after he woke up from the ice? D'8 FUCK NO MY FEELINGS. GIVE ME THIS DVD NOW.)))

Hi, my name is Ginny and I am so fucking incorrigible I don't even know how I survive in this world.


I watched Shelter last night and found it to be a very heartwarming and moving story, with Trevor Wright being seriously adorable and whose looks somehow keep reminding me of Stiles as Zach. The horrible camera angles and awkward acting from most of the cast made me want to shoot myself, though. But it's still the nicest m/m romance I've seen so far. Then again, I've only really seen around five.


Guys we've only got one fill for the lyrics meme so far, why. D: Said fill is BEAUTIFUL, though, so you should all go read it now. ♥

And I should go to bed. \o/ Tomorrow I will revamp my icon list force myself to do sufficient work on my papers. And fix the requirements for my scholarship application for next term.

And maybe work on my coherence, too.

PS. Who the fuck watches the Avengers movie repeatedly and obsessively, and comes out of the ordeal shipping Bucky/Steve harder than ever as fuck even though Bucky Barnes wasn't even granted a single flashback in it?

!! GO, GO, GO! I'll join you all when I wake up in, uh, maybe, hopefully four to five hours. ♥ (No, see, I am a horrible human being. I told Jenn to poke me when she's finally gotten the post up, and when she did I... decided to concede to sleep. LML)


PS. Who the fuck watches the Avengers movie repeatedly and obsessively, and comes out of the ordeal shipping Bucky/Steve harder than ever as fuck even though Bucky Barnes wasn't even granted a single flashback in it? Me, that's who. Also maybe [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate. Is it 2014 yet? 8|

Okay, fine, is it July 15 yet?

PPS.

ravyn_ashling: [almost famous] anita - one day, you'll be cool. (kazuya)
So I'm watching Kings in the guise of motivating myself while finishing my case study for tomorrow's class (this is evidently a poor excuse and an ill attempt because rewards and bribes do nothing for my productivity at all, and I probably won't finish this paper until 2AM), and I have to pause after every scene David and Jack have with each other, because I know how this show's been cancelled, know that there won't be a proper resolution, know that David and Jack's relationship will never be explored to its full potential--and this is where you hear me screaming, "NOOOOO MY KING DAVID x JONATHAN MODERN AU GIVE IT TO ME ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS AND THINGS THAT I SECRETLY GIGGLED OVER DURING CHRISTIAN LIVING CLASS IN HIGH SCHOOL BUT NEVER SPOKE OF BECAUSE, WELL, CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL," (if I'd known this show was inspired by King David's story, I would have got to it sooner, I swear, but sometimes I fail like that so) arms flailing helplessly in the air and all.

Why do all the good shows get cancelled, Jennifer f-list? Why do shows like Glee continue to exist, while Sebastian Stan's beautiful angst god face gets pushed off a cliff along with the stellar writing and gorgeous cinematography that surrounds it, never to be heard from again? (No, what? No, I didn't mention Glee just because Sebastian Stan and Dianna Agron dated, what. I really do hate what that show has become.) Tell me, f-list,



I'm wondering how much of a difference it would have made if the Kings' marketing team decided to use the show's connection to the Biblical story to promote it. Shh, I'm a Communications-graduate-cum-Marketing-student, this is very relevant to my interests. I'm thinking a lot. Hands, meet air; welcome frustration my old friend.



Anyway! I marathoned Teen Wolf S1 over the weekend, and I really, really enjoyed it? Not feeling fannish about it just yet, and I still need more Derek/Stiles interaction for me to properly get giddy over them together, but I really, really adore Stiles (I don't think there's any surprise there, because everybody does, right?) and I love Allison, and I don't find Scott annoying like a lot of people seem to? Probably has to do with my liking his face a lot. In a... perfectly non-sexual way, thank fuck, because [livejournal.com profile] l_trickster_l pointed out that this is J-Lo's kid from Maid in Manhattan we're talking about, and--oh hey. He was born in 1991. That's... I've had a huge crush on someone born in 1991, that's not so ba--NO. B|

But yeah. Stiles. Arguably the best character in the show. Definitely joining that hypothetical fan club. Also, while I coo a lot at Scott's face and ridiculousness, I coo so much harder when Stiles is having moments with his daddy. I really love Stiles and his daddy. ;3;


Also, can I just say that I love that even though I'm practically committing fandom polygamy (maybe not polygamy per se, though, but more like polyamory? multifandom whoring?), I don't feel so bad about it because EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING THE SAME? I love you guys. I really, really do. Never let me take too long a break from LJ again, fuck the website restrictions at my workplace. Fuck my even more limited time and even busier schedule these days. Fuck--

I'm so fucking hungry right now. But then I am always hungry. You won't like me when I'm hungry. #HULKSMASH

I should... get back to my paper. ~~~~~/o/

OH LOOK MORE SEBASTIAN STAN ANGST GOD APPRECIATION! AND BUCKY/STEVE AKA WHY-I-HAVEN'T-COMPLETELY-FALLEN-DOWN-THE-TONY/STEVE-RABBIT-HOLE-YET (got this from [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate who obviously wants people curling in torturous pain with her, WHYYY WOMAN?! AND WHYYYY, BUCKY?! D'8)



I successfully submitted my draft for [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb btw, sooo that's exciting. Ish. Fingers crossed! XD

Still hungry.
