I've been rotting my brain with the sugary sweet awesomeness of "She's the Man" fanfic, and the wonderfully warped pairing of Penny/Sheldon of "The Big Bang Theory."  But then, when my great desire for "Pandorum" fic surfaced, I was horrified to discover THAT THERE IS NONE!  What the hell, man? Where's all the Pandorum writers?

I can see something C.J. Cherryh like about them all starting out on a brand new planet.  Or I can see someone waking up onboard the ship being hunted by the creatures.  Or I can see a serious epic about how the Captain, ruling his kingdom on the ship, exiles a bunch of people to the cargo hold where after centuries of scavenging and degradation they evolve into monsters.

Or if someone was really cool, I can see a Highlander Immortal wandering the ship of horrors.  Or maybe the ship crosses path with the city-ship of Dark City.  Or... yeah.  I wants me some Pandorum fanfic, dammit!

BTW, saw "Whip It."  Thought it was going to be awesomer, was a bit disappointed :(  Still, Ellen Page is adorable in her geektatude.

Also, everyone should totally read Lauralot's fanfic at www. fanfiction.net/u/1100763/lauralot because I'm totally in love with Jonathan Crane now and her series starting with "Mad Friends" has totally changed my world.  In the way that I have now read WAY too much Batman Begins/Dark Knight pron.  Still, very pleased.

Product: The Original Mint Julup Masque from Queen Helene
Ad: "Helps dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads & shrink enlarged pores:
Contains: water, kaolin, bentonite, glycerin, zinc oxide, propylene glycol, sulfur, chromium oxide greens, fragrance, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben

All righties, first off I would like to say that I'm pretty sure the mask does what it's purported to do. After using it, my skin feels smooth and refreshed and I have the sense that SOMETHING has been done about my acne.

Unfortunately, I refuse to use the mask on a day when I have to work or do much of anything else. Why, you ask? Well, when you squeeze it from the tube the minty scent is very strongly reminiscent of toothpaste. Green, goopy toothpaste that you glob on your skin and spread until it's not too thick, which is difficult because it has the consistency of toothpaste as well.

There's a vague sensation of tingling heat over your entire face. You want to watch out though, because a lot of people find themselves allergic to zinc oxide. So if you have any real burning sense, rinse it off and keep an eye out for redness or swelling.

And here's the reason why I don't use it on a day when I have to do anything... when it's all rinsed off and done, even if you scrub with soap or whatever... you still get a stinky sense of sulfur. Just vague whiffs of sulfur when you least expect them that are really hard to wash away.

Still, I use the Mint Julup Masque because it actually seems to be doing something for my skin. Though it would be a lot better if it didn't have such a lingering sulfur scent, 'cause yuck.

I've been fiddling with this thing all night long and I think I've finally fixed it... hopefully.

A couple of weeks ago I went through and ran a complete reformat on it so I could update the firmware because it had ceased to accept my Napster subscription... which had been working fine before ::shrug:: Anyways, after that there were tons of songs that popped up as "Bad Tracks."

I loaded the Sansa in MSC, went into the SYSTEM folder, found the DATA folder, and deleated the PD-whatever .dat file, which caused the Sansa to reload and supposedly reintegrate all of my music. It worked for some songs, but there were a whole load of others that still refused to show.

Using Winamp, I tried to manually pick and choose songs to remove and replace, but the stupid thing kept insisting that it was full when I knew damn well it wasn't. Finally, filled with frustration, I loaded it up in MSC mode, clicked on the entire Sansa main file, and under Properties ordered it to take off the Hidden on all files. Suddenly, all of my Goldfinger songs are back, there's my t.ATu, and my Puffy Ami Yumi's are back again. Unfortunately, though, Tricky's "Dear God" still refuses to be anything but a "Bad Track" no matter how many times I've reloaded it, but... Whatever.

I'm going to bed. Screw all the rest.

I'm working on a new story, "Universal Tours." It stars Connor Kent-Rowdy, son of the Metropolis Boom universe Boomer Rowdy and Clark Kent.

For his seventeen birthday, his uncles Brick and Butch take him on a tour of the multiverse, but things go wrong after they hit the Buffy-verse. He ends up chasing a bad guy across the various universes with Oz at his side. I thought it was a cute idea anyway. I always like the chase animes and the scene from the starting sequence of Paradise Kiss always makes me giggle... the chibis running around with the giant city scene looming over them.

BTW, just got my copy of "Fruits" by Shoichi Aoki. Most of the fashions made me wince at the possible future blindness... but there were some cute jackets and things that I could see wearing a piece at a time. It was just that everyone had this need to wear every cute thing in their wardrobe at one time. Still, it was really interesting.

Holy shizmet, the Comedy Central Roast of William Shatner was brutal and largely unfunny. And then the great man got up himself and tore everyone a new butthole... and all I could do was wince and change the channel because that was something I never wanted to see. Sure, William Shatner plays a screwed up lawyer on that show he's on, but geez.

Shatner must have been drinking all night, that's all I can say. And when he got up, it was nothing but an ugly situation.

And what was with all the gay jokes about Andy Dick? Everyone was taking potshot at him and he really looked like he was getting pissed. None of it was funny. It was just uncomfortable and kind of depressing that Captain Kirk has fallen that far. Starfleet will never take him back now and damn the torpedoes.

BTW, why the hell would anyone agree to be the subject of a Comedy Central Roast? It never goes well for anyone, and it always just turns into an ugly debacle that people are a long time forgetting (Courtney Love at the Roast of Pamela Anderson.) If someone came up to me and offered me a million dollars to be the subject of a CC Roast, I'd say hell no, 'cause that's not something you can ever walk away from.

The finale to the Green Screen Challenge on The Colbert Report... holy shizmit, yo! George L. made a good showing, but yowza, Bonnie totally whooped his asparagus and boy howdy. Catch it on the replay, yo. A treat to remember.

Especially when Stephen got his butt sabered to him by Georgie L.

In case you missed it, George Lucas guested on The Colbert Report. Whew. I thought all the Star Trek (sic) was going to get Stevie in trouble with the Big G, you know, since he's not really down with the copyright infringement. Instead, he was pretty cool about it, which raised him up on my personal awesometer. Too bad he's not cool about the slashtasms overrunning the intertube, 'cause that would be great for the ficcers, bad for the ickers.

I was in the kitchen digging through the cupboard when Bryson came up behind me.

"Wanna cracker," he said, pointing.

"You're a cracker," I said. "An Asian cracker."

"I Asian cracker." He made munching noises, pretending someone was biting the top of his head.

I know, it's dumb, but I had to laugh. What a dorkboy.
