I Has A Sad!!!!

I apologize for my lack of updates lately. Here's the thing. I'm in mourning. I'm in mourning for two reasons.

1. Lost is over and I wrote 57 posts about Lost, so I'm pretty upset there will be no more Lost for me to write about and love :(

2. American Idol proved America continues to be filled with idiots. I didn't bother recapping the final two performing. I just tweeted about how OBVIOUS IT WAS THAT CRYSTAL WAS BETTER. But then Crystal didn't win. Much like last year, the safe choice won over the better choice. At least last year, the guy who ended up winning also happened to be incredibly talented and my husband. This year, it's just some schlub, who, yes, I like, sure, but HOW DID CRYSTAL NOT WIN?! HONESTLY?! Plus, that finale show was the absolute strangest two hours of television I've ever seen and the whole thing confused & disappointed me. If Lee & Crystal fall in love and become each other's constants, maybe I'll forgive this whole mess. Maybe.

Update: Crystal & her boyfriend broke up. Go Leystal! Go Cree! Is there any way to create a not horribly shitty shipper name here?

Obviously, Lost is having a much bigger impact on me than Idol is, but like, seriously? And to cap it all off, there are people who hated Lost and loved Idol.

I need to go buy an iPad and call it a day. Or better yet, begin Red Dead Redemption?! See full post

Glee-Cap: Lacy Demon Clothes

LADY GAGA!!! is there anything you can't do?  no. no there isn't.  For all my hating and fears, invoking Gaga (current avatar of creativity on the world celebrity stage) seriously sent some chills up my spine last night. Thanks to you, who I've written about before, the often fractured narrative of Glee managed to tell story that included something about everyone in the Glee club, and turn in some fantastically fun and poignant musical numbers.


Twilight Fever causes all sorts of kerfuffle this week as Tina is banned from wearing Goth clothes. Finn's Mom gets her longest set of lines yet as she and Kurt and Kurt's Dad all surprise Finn and move in together. And Quinn continues to point out to Puck that as long as he acts like the cock of the walk and makes a joke of their unborn child, she's not interested in his participation in the process... THEATRICALITY rears its head on Glee this week.

"My mom says she thinks Kristen Stewart looks like a bitch," and therefore Tina can't watch Twilight.

This, much like other things you might not expect from the whole endeavor is the name of the game with theatricality. Adornment, Spectacle and Theatricality are all fantastic tools in the arsenal of artistic expression, both describing, masking and clarifying visually everything that is hidden beneath.

More on that, and the Mystery of Rachel's Mother... after the jump.

"And Ladies, I don't want to hear about chafing just because you're wearing metal underwear, not my problem"

Lost Series Finale - A Conversation

 A screen-cap from possibly my favorite moment of the finale? Okay!

So. @xoxogg and I have been disagreeing about Lost this entire season. We decided our next gchat conversation on the matter, which was to no doubt come after the finale, would be posted here as a point/counterpoint. So here it is, as promised. And in case you're wondering, xoxogg has been a Lost lover from the start, so much so that he has trouble picking a favorite season. But he started to get worried with the season 5 finale, and has overall strongly disliked season 6. I too have been watching since the beginning, but didn't become obsessed like I am now until the end of season 3. My favorite seasons are 4 and 5. Here is our discussion on the Lost series finale.
 xoxoGG: Are you ready to do this with me?

LoquaciousMuse: I should be.  I’m just sad its over and my face hurts, my brain is fried and I'm saaaaaaad.

xoxoGG: Okay, so then, you go first: tell me what you thought how you felt, and then I'll go.

LoquaciousMuse: Hmmm.  I thought it was beautiful.  I loved that half of the season was the epilogue and we didn't know it, that the finale still managed to turn a device we thought we knew on its head.  I love the idea that these souls are bonded together and I see them "moving on" together as them going into their next life, but souls forever bonded, which is something I believe in and I notice people are interpreting the end to fit whatever their own faith is, which I think is lovely even if it's just spiritualitycause I'm more of a secular spiritualist anyway, and it allowed room for anything, making the themes love, redemption, about characters and closure which it has always been about, and I wanted character resolution and I got itThe character arcs were amazing, especially Hurley's and Jack'sThe reunions were breathtaking, I sobbed during every one.  The acting was spot on -- Charlie saying "Claire" broke me. And I like the idea that there are questions left unanswered, because it allows continual theorizing, and keeps the show alive past its end date.

xoxoGG: Alrighty, can I cut in?  :)

LoquaciousMuse:  Yes haha.

xoxoGG: As you know, I've been SUPER pissed this whole past season because the show has been such a shadow of its former self -- completely eschewing character and development for a last minute ultimate good vs. ultimate evil (thought not really blah blah blah I'm sure the writers can't even explain it) storyline that's taken up all of our time on-island this past five months, but, ultimately, I didn't hate the finale.  I think it was the best that we could have gotten given the lackluster sixth season that we've had and I really did enjoy the character reunionsI'm not even bothered by the revelation that the side flashes were basically heaven's waiting room (though I could have done without the multi-religious church at the end -- I mean, I get that they wouldn't want to alienate anyone's faith but Jesus a little heavy handed) -- that said, I think it was an ultimately lackluster SERIES finale it capped the show that I’ve been watching this year perfectly.  But that show isn't the one that I started watching six years ago.

LoquaciousMuse: I don't think it was ever about ultimate good versus ultimate evil and Across the Sea helped illuminate that it's a lot more complicated than that, that they were just people. MiB would do anything to get off that island. Jacob would do anything to protect it.

It's cute that some of the actors don't know the answers to questions even I know the answers to See full post

But If I Think About It Too Much More, I'LL START BAWLING AGAIN



"Christian Shephard? Seriously?" 

"Well, doc, how about you come down off the mountain top and tell us what the hell the burning bush had to say for itself."  

"That was Charlie."

"We're not candidates anymore." 

"We don't get involved. Whatever got you tossed inside a well, that's the kind of drama Bernard and I don't want to have anything to do with."  

"Her name is Ji Yeon,"

"Looks like you've got your first gray hair." 

"I'm going to kill you."
"And how do you plan to do that?"
"It's a surprise."

"Jack, I believe in you, dude." 

"I think you're a good guy, Sayid."

"You're not John Locke. You disrespect his memory by wearing his face, but you're nothing like him. Turns out he was right about most everything. I just wish I would have told him that when he was still alive."  
"Great pleasure to meet you, Charlotte." 

Excuse me, is this table 23?"  

"Looks like you were wrong, too."

"Are you going to take my son?"  


"I hope that somebody does for you what you just did for me." 

"If the island is going down, I'm going down with it."  

"I'm with you, dude."

"Tell me I'm going to see you again,"  
"I love you,"

"We should get coffee sometime."
"I'd love to, but that machine ate my dollar. I've only got one left."
"We can go Dutch."

"Juliet, it's you. It's me."
"It's me, baby,I got you. I got you, baby."
"Yeah. Kiss me, James."
"You got it, Blondie." 

"I've missed you so much."  

"Hurley, it needs you."
"It needs to be you, Hugo." 

"I'll see you in another life, brother."  

"I'm very sorry for what I did to you, John. I was selfish, jealous. I wanted everything you had." 
"What did I have?"
"You were special, John, but I wasn't."
"Well, if it helps, Ben, I forgive you."
"Thank you, John. That does help. It matters more than I can say." 

"I think you do what you do best, take care of people."

"That's how Jacob ran things. Maybe there's another way. A better way."
"Will you help me?"
"I'm sorry?"
"I could really use someone with, like, experience. For a little while." 
"Will you help me, Ben?"  
"I'd be honored."

"You know, you were a real good number two."
"And you were are great number one, Hugo." 

"Yeah, I'm real. You're real. Everything that ever happened to you is real. All those people in the church, they're all real, too." 

"Well this is a place that you all made together so that you could find one another. The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people. That's why all of them are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them and they all needed you."

Thoughts: That was beautiful. If you don't get it, if you don't like it, I'm sorry you didn't get to experience what I experienced last night. I'm confident this will go down as one of the greatest television shows in history. I don't give a shit about the questions that remained unanswered. We got our character resolutions and that's what the show has always been about. I'm happy to theorize about the things that weren't made clear. It keeps the show alive. I don't want answers for every little thing, and you don't either. Can't wait to show my kids this series one day, and to rewatch the whole thing with them. So happy I've been a part of Lost since the beginning, even if my obsession didn't start until the season three finale, carrying on into seasons 4, 5 and 6. I have a lot of theories and a lot to say on this finale. If you wanna chat about it, let's chat about it.

90210 Semi Live Blogging - Stupid Finale, The Name Of Which Doesn't Matter

Previously on 90210: A whole lot of suckage and a tiny bit of promising in the form of Annie/Liam.

Side-note: I normally don't include pre-episode predictions like this, but because it was so spot on, I must, in retrospect, slip in how this discussion actually occurred - Someone in the room predicts, based on the "Previously" revisiting Naomi's sexual harassment accusation, that British teacher will actually come on to Naomi in this episode cause she is the "girl who cried wolf." I explain that this makes no sense, as the teacher has had nothing but good intentions and really cares about his students. Back to the live blogging now.

Will motherhood make Jen a better being human being? PREDICTION!: No.

Knowing she is becoming a mother hasn't changed anything, so why would physically being one do the trick? At least Georgina seemed fucked up about it on Gossip Girl.

No nurse would say "Get a job" but okay.

"I'd never see you again. Or you know, anyone from West Bev." Nice one, Liam. Good cover up.

Annie stands funny. Damn, I gotta screen-cap that shit. ----------------------------->

Could Annie be talking about herself?! ?!?!!? ?!?!?!!

Adrianna is becoming a superstar! Will alcohol be offered to her? That was her big concern, right? Will this be addressed ever in actuality?

I totally just thought he was gonna open a box and coke was gonna be inside. I forgot that box was Navid's.

EueyeEEYUUUU Ivy & Dixon again. Plleaaseee stoopp torturinggg meeee.

Doesn't everyone know the toilet thing about Australia? Or not idiots? Oh, ok.

Gross Dixon likes Silver again cause he is a boy and they kissed so now of course he likes her again and this is so stupid

Poor Ryan. I would NOT want to be that woman's babby-daddy.

RYAN had unprotected sex of all people?! Really?! He's actually that stupid? Nothing makes sense on this show. Nothing the characters do is in line with anything else they've ever done or been presented as.

"Remember that day when we broke up?" Funny, I don't remember you guys actually ever becoming a couple. And remember how you have no chemistry? This is so dumb.

"You know I can't keep a secret from you." ... Since when?! Since when can Dixon not keep a secret from Ivy?!

Ivy freaks out for no reason, also totally not in line with her character. Awesome.

Oh god, this kid isn't gonna graduate?! They are gonna keep him around another season?! I hope not. I also don't want him blackmailing anyone and getting away with it. Because, again, I hate him. He is smarmy.

Naomi can run for a boy.

Naomi doesn't know what Guantanmo Bay is, you can't fool me, show

Liam tells it like it is! Nice! Take it, Naomi.

Is anyone gonna bother to turn the live feed off? Nope! Of course not.

This is kind of amusing. I enjoyed that.

Jen says something stupid and offensive about women like she knows anything.

Why does Hot Sleepy Teacher have a beard right now? When did he grow that?

 Hot Sleepy BEARDED Teacher

Wait, Hot Sleepy Teacher's life was off track?? Oh, is that what his beard means? He seemed just fine to me. I'm confused. Just cause he got high once and then Jen came back?

Jen is too bitchy to be a mom, I don't buy it. And didn't she supposedly really like Ryan? Auuughh. I don't get ittt.

Teddy growls. Literally. He just growled. Like three times.

If a boy says "I need you in my life" and you aren't overwhelmed with joy, walk away. Good job, Silver.

Since when is tennis a celebate sport?, the room asks. Tennis players are horndogs. Notoriously. Dumb.

Yeah. Those girls are juniors. In high school. Bwhahaha.

I wonder if Annalynne McCord felt as awkward singing Single Ladies as she looked & sounded.

What is JavierJavierJavier doing there? He doesn't go to their school, does he?

Ohhh, he's singing for them. Got it.

Adrianna does a terrible job of breaking up with javierjavierjavier and is randomly insensitive and short. Surprise! Betraying character traits again! Woot!

Javierjavierjavier is suddenly creepily invested in Adrianna.

Stand up straight, Annie, come on.

The rest after the jump

Glee-Cap: On Absent Mothers...

A lot happened in last night's Glee, Dream On,

There was Neil Patrick Harris as a School-Board, Budget-Cutting, Show-Choir-Anonymous Used-Hummer Salesman. He had some great monologues.

It had Artie (who is in the wheelchair)  got 2 songs, one of which is big dance number.

But the biggest deal in Dream On is the introduction of an actual honestly to goodness more than one episode story arc. Follow after the jump for a SPOILER including discussion of what happened.

I was so shocked I had to slushie myself to snap out of it.

It's shocking, almost more shocking and entertaining that Sue Sylvester and Bryan Ryan's educational-value-off and follow-up anger sex... almost.

See full post

This Episode Has Been in my Brain for 5 DAYS ALREADY


"We insist, even if we have to kidnap you"
"You are the closest thing to a father she's ever had"

"Maybe this is happening for a reason. Maybe you are supposed to fix me"
"Mr. Locke, maybe you are mistaking coincidence for fate"

"Its where I was told I could summon the monster. That's before I realized that it was the one summoning me."

"I want to see this"
"He doesn't get to save his daughter".

"I chose you because you needed this place as much as it needed you". 
"Because you became a mother

"You are now like me"
"I'm just glad it isnt me"

"You don't seem like you're a cop to me."

"You didn't tell me Ana-Lucia was going to be here."


42 Kwan? If Kate was crossed out cause she's a mother, many have been speculating that 42 has meant Jin this whole time, as he has been an absent father, just like Sawyer, who was also not crossed out, despite being a father. Another theory? The long standing "Ji Yeon is a candidate" school of thought. Jacob did touch BOTH Sun & Jin after all, and now little Ji Yeon is an orphan, totally alone, nothing to tie her to the off-island world.

I'm hoping in my heart of hearts that master manipulator Ben Linus is pulling one long and awesome con on Smokey as revenge for the years of Smokey masquerading as Jacob & using Ben as a pawn. Ben had to kill Widmore cause Widmore killed Alex. I don't think it means he's turned completely to the dark side. Plus he had to convince Smokey he meant business, right?

Kate is going to the concert - is Jack her connection to the island or is Aaron, who perhaps will be borne out of Claire at said concert - going to be the key? Her motherhood, as we discovered in this episode, has become what makes her matter in the world.

Michael Emerson and Terry O' Quinn both killed it in this episode. And Matthew Fox's moment of literally stepping up [to the plate] brought me to tears. 

I can't wait for this finale.

American Idol Top 3 - We Have Ourselves a Race


Well, it's top three week. Which means, in this case, contestant choice & judge's choice. Here's what we learned: Casey James is a goner, Crystal has to BRING IT next week and Lee Dewyze is effing sexy, people. There. I said it. Here we go!

Casey James - Ok It's All Right With Me
Fine, cute, looking good, sounds good, but you know, just kind of fine, nothing to write home about
Randy - "Kind of all right with me."
Ellen - Summary = eh
Kara - Summary = eh
Simon - Most important night of his life, lucky, cause compares that song to the salad portion of the dinner. Sounded like busking. Daft song choice.

Casey - Daughters
Just guitar and piano is good, but ultimately he doesn't sound as good as John Mayer, Much better than his first performance, but he's not winning anything. Nice note hitting and nice guitar playing. But overall? Not better than Crystal or Lee.
Randy - Good direction, really, honestly
Ellen - Beautiful for him, really good
Kara - Good job
Simon - Much much better song choice than the first one. Was a bit of a lazy arrangement. Thinks there should have been more vocals in the arrangement. Kara & Randy disagree. He says he DID sound very good on it though.

Crystal Bowersox - Come Through My Window
Love the harmonica opening. Kinda wish it was just her & the guitar. Not her best. Not sure she should have picked a song by an artist she is too close to. Didn't really hit one of the notes or two. Definitely not her best. 
Randy - Didn't love the arrangement, but did like her vocal on it. Rose above the arrangement, all worked in the end
Ellen - And I totally missed what Ellen said...sigh. I was in a room filled with like 12 people, it was inevitable.
Kara - She is capable of a moment and hopes she has one
Simon - Wasn't the most stunning version of the song, but liked that she was herself, honest performance, made the right choice, congratulations

Crystal - Maybe I'm Amazed
I hate the sparkles. Sounding great. Didn't change the words, WIN! "Baby I'm a man." Hitting the notes. Sounds awesome. She looks nervous. Slightly flat overall, but still awesome.
Randy - Great song, great vocals, in it to win it
Ellen - Did it
Kara - Didn't change it up that much, but showed parts of her voice they hadn't heard before tonight, really pushed, no instrument - huge risk. Risk paid off.
Simon - Was surpsied with songchoice, but noe he gets it. Proved that she has soul, worked outside of her comfort soul. May be thanking Ellen for putting her in the final. 

Lee Dewyze - Simple Man 
Was kind of hoping Ryan was gonna say "Crosby, Stills and Nash" instead of Lynyrd Skynyrd" but we can't always get what we want, can we? Please just be him and the guitar. Damnit. The rest of the band just came in. Oh well. He's still doing a great job. The non-Idol watchers in the room have dubbed him their favorite and some even have crushes. 
Randy - Somebody here is feeling like they could win this. He's ready.
Ellen - That's what we're talking about. Took it seriously. So proud of him.
Kara - He did what the contestants need to do, showed them everything he's got. Round 1 goes to Lee.
Simon - That song was absolutely on the money. Blew the other two out of the water.

Lee - Hallelujah
Really?! Hallelujah? I don't we go. Just him playing the guitar. Like it so far. STRINGS?! OK! Choir. Not sure it needs choir. Doesn't need the band, but he still sounds good. Shit. Lee. Is. Rocking it. Uh oh, Mamasox. My oh my. Methinks Lee won this night, no? Wow.
Randy - Been waiting all season to see who is gonna throw down the real gauntlet to win the whole thing. Biggest moment at the biggest time. Unbelievable.
Ellen - That was stunning
Kara - What the show is all about. Starts in a limp place and ends up here tonight. Heart of the show this season, owned the entire night.
Simon - Very very very proud of him. Proved that he is a fantastic singer, a great person, and Simon hopes he makes it through. 

Damn. And suddenly Lee is the front runner. Hmmm. Funny how much this resembles Katherine McPhee/Taylor Hicks, Blake Lewis/Jordin, Sparks Archie/David Cook, Adam Lambert/Kris Allen around this time, huh? I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Lee pulled it out in the end, though at this point I still really want it to be Crystal for being pretty consistent week to week, for being totally awesome, for being unique, for being unlike any other winner (or contestant for that matter!) and so on and so forth.

I'm nervous, you guys.

Going Home: Casey, or something is wrong with the world

Lee (overall) A-
Crystal (overall) B
Casey (overall) C+

I'm not a Stephenie Meyer fan but I'm generally apathetic about her existence. But I do get super annoyed when I discover things we have in common. Like that we both have degrees in Literature. Or how we both want Henry Cavill but will settle for Robert Pattinson because OMG THEY'RE BOTH SO BEAUTIFUL AND I LOVES THEM BUT HENRY IS MINE SO BACK OFF STEPH. But I digress...

So I get a little crazy when I'm reminded about our shared interests. Like the other day I freaked out when I got an official MUSE email about a new song they've released called Neutron Star Collision (Love is Forever) for the f-ing ECLIPSE SOUNDTRACK! EWWWWWWWGROSS. And you know why MUSE has a song on ALL the Twilight soundtracks? Because f-ing Stephenie Meyer is a huge fan. UGH WTF I'M A HUGE FAN TOO! I hate that she loves one of MY favorite bands and that she was listening to them while writing her Twilight poop. And I really hate that MUSE's songs are on the Twipoop soundtracks!

Nonetheless, I downloaded this new MUSE song aka the first single off of the Eclipse soundtrack (vomit). And you know what? It kinda sucks!!! The song sounds like a really bad b-side to MUSE's last album The Resistance. And that was an amazing album because MUSE is almost always awesome. So I'll blame the sucky song on Stephenie and not them. Siiigh. Ok, my rant is done. But may I digress once more?

The Machine Orchestra of CalArts

While Muse was enjoying LOST LIVE, I too was at an awesome, albeit less popular, concert at CalArts. Thanks to one of my best friends (a CalArts student who contributed to the show) I had an all access pass to the KarmetiK Machine Orchestra. Under the direction of Ajay Kapur and Michael Darling and inspired by the works of inventor/musician/genius/wizard Trimpin, the Machine Orchestra put on a very unique concert full of robots and good music. Yeah, I said robots.

Kick Ass: Creating the Comic, Making The Movie

Oh Kick Ass, we hardly knew ye. I'm still depressed about the marketing campaign, the opening weekend, the subsequent significant drop off, and just about all that sadness. But I am holding out hope for success on DVD and maybe even sequel that will open limited initially, and be screened less often, as should have been the case with the first film. I recently took a peek inside Mark Millar's making-of book entitled Kick-Ass, Creating the Comic, Making the Movie, which many sites gave away in contests last month, and a peek led to essentially reading the entire book cover to cover. The book made me love the movie even more and I thought a little post on the matter would be fitting.

First off, this making-of book isn't like the cheapo, I can find that info anywhere, why are you wasting my time, making-of books that I see most often. This book is different because it came directly from the source, from Mark Millar, author of Kick Ass, the comic, who has had a hand in the movie since day 1, as the comic and the film were developed simultaneously. The book provides as much of a back story for the comic as it does the movie, which is pretty awesome. It feels completely comprehensive. It even goes into the guerilla marketing for the *comic*, which is the kind of thing that would normally never have a place in a making-of book, but is completely fascinating. We even get email exchanges between Millar & director, Matthew Vaughan from throughout the entire process. One of my favorite bits was learning about how, to raise money for the comic, Mark Millar held a contest - whoever donates the most money (auction style) gets to name the main character. And who won? Yup. Dave Lizewski. 3000 bucks and his name is immortalized in both comic & movie history. Pretty badass.

The book also gets incredibly specific when it comes to commentary. You have comments from Jane Goldman (the screenwriter) on Dave Lizewski, Matthew Vaughan on casting Aaron Johnson, Clark Duke on Being a Fan, John Romita Jr on designing Dave, costume designer Sammy Sheldon on the costume for the movie (complete with comic design to film design in sketch form to film design on the actors for every costume in the movie), Nic Cage on being inspired by Adam West, Mark Millar on Fanboys, so on and so forth. And everything I had questions about got answered - why did Big Daddy's motivations change from comic to movie, who the sketches of the random "villains" were on Big Daddy's, wall, how did Johnson get the part when they specifically wanted an American, and the list goes on. Plus the book is large and filled with pretty pictures, organized effectively, which I always appreciate. Here's what the book says it contains:

-Millar's early comic book script pages
-Eye-popping romita art, including new pages especially drawn for the movie
-Exclusive contributions from the cast and crew
-Hundreds of movie photos, sketches, storyboard and pieces of production art


The only thing that sucks about this book? It's a cruel reminder of the potential of Kick Ass that was squandered by Lionsgate's shitty campaign. The last few pages are on Volume 2 & the sequel to the movie. A sequel sure seemed definite when the book was published, but despite announcements otherwise, I'm not so sure we'll be seeing that hit theaters.

But if you're a fan of the film, you should definitely pick up this book. I read the damn thing cover to cover and it's LARGE. And then I dropped it in my pool. And now it's all fucked up and warped and I might have to buy another one. But that's another story for another time. See full post
