And, because I've gotten no responses yet, is there anyone going to a Cobra show who could get me a Yo! Cobra Starship hoodie? They were sold out at NY. I can send you the money via check or paypal and I'd love you forever.
Brendon should always wear glasses.

Entertain me in the comments.

ETA: I am still at work, but I had a major breakthrough:

This is Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 movies of the last 25 years list.

Bold the ones you've seen
Put an asterisk after the movie title* if you really liked it
Cross it out if you saw a film and really disliked it
Underline the ones you own

I've seen 41 of them. )

Ficlet: Coffee and a Scone (Harry Potter)

And some more musings about the HP series a year after it finished. )
I've been thinking about something I'm sure other celebrity blogs have pointed out already, but I don't follow any of them closely enough to know for sure. But...

Blonds are out.

When I was in middle school, every popular female singer was blond. Britney, Christina, Jessica (Spears, Aguilera, Simpson)- all blond. Mandy Moore was blond too.

A few years later there's Hilary, Lindsey, and Ashlee (Duff, Lohan, and Simpson). Hilary's blond. Ashlee started as a blond, and has been jumping around. Lindsey started as a redhead, then blond, brunette, blond, I think in that order. But, at this point she's been consistently blond for a while.

A smidgen of a step outside the cookie-cutter and we get Pink and Avril (Lavigne, ugh, kill me now, or better yet, kill her now). Both blonds.

Even Paris and Nicole are blond. In fact, that's about the only talent they have.

But, there's a new pack of celebrities led by Miley and Vanessa (Cyrus and Hudgens) that are dark brunettes. I guess celebrity stylists can do anything, but they don't have the color hair that's a set of highlights away from being blond. They're true brunettes.

And so are all three of the girls pegged as the next 'it' girls- Selena (Gomez, Disney TV show: Wizards of Waverly Place), Demi (Lovato, Camp Rock), and Miranda (Cosgrove, Nick: iCarly).

Ashley Tisdale could be the exception that proves the rule.

Even the less famous girls of the moment like Katy Perry seem to be brunette. Who knows how her career will play out, but 'I Kissed a Girl' was in the top 10 iTunes downloads for the week, and I saw the video for that song no less than 4 times this weekend on some combination of VH1/MTV/Fuse.

So, I'm making the call- Blonds are out, brunettes are in. Or, else I just don't watch enough MTV anymore to know better.

(Of course, this doesn't consider traditional tv. Ensemble casts on broadcast networks seem specifically chosen to have two hair-colors. There's the tall, pretty blond and the shorter, and the not-supposed-to-be-but-way-prettier brunette best friend. Gossip Girls is cast with with OC clones. Maybe if they were standing next to each other I could tell Mischa Barton and Blake Lively apart, but really, if Blake's acting career doesn't go well, she could get a job as a Mischa Barton look alike. Rachel Bilson and Leighton Meester look less identical, but fill the same role.)
tl;dr )

The short of it is, I made a fic comm for myself, [ profile] andampersands, even though I don't have a lot of fic, in an attempt to be more organized and in the hopes of encouraging myself to write more. I also have a lot of fic in various states of unposted on my hard drive. I'm combining the two and declaring it Unposted Fic Amnesty Holiday Weekend (even though I still have to work tomorrow). I posted two things tonight:

Ficlet: Easy Target
[Pete Wentz/Ashlee Simpson, John Mayer | PG | Not Real | 496 words]

This is totally unfinished. I started it for [ profile] pearl_o's xkcd prompt thing. It's based off of this xkcd. It's centered around a blog post of John Mayer's that I can't for the life of me find. Basically he wrote all about how Pete's not a douche, he's actually a really awesome guy.

Panic! at the Orgy: or How Brendon Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Ryan Ross
[Matt Cortez/Katie Kay/Dusty/Zack/Spencer, Zack/Spencer, Katie Kay/Dusty, Brendon/Ryan, Jon/Cassie | Porn-ish | Not Real | 2458 words]

In which Zack winds up with a sex room, Jon has phone sex with his girlfriend, and Brendon misses the orgy. First there was this picture. Then this picture. On first look, they could be on the same bed. I wrote this fic last summer, up to and including all the fun header things (disclaimer, summary, authors notes, etc) and then never posted it. I = fail.

(Or maybe I'm just the only person who cares more about the dogs then the baby.)

But first, Happy Birthday [ profile] bravenewlife and [ profile] runnerbean!

Last night, I went to the Unlimited Enthusiasm Expo at the Bowery Ballroom. The Unlimited Enthusiasm Expo, which is also sometimes called Camp Jump and Yell, is the Harry and the Potter's summer tour.

I don't think the first performer was on the bill. It was Dumbledore rapping. )

The first opener was Uncle Monsterface. )

Math the Band was the second opener. )

And then there was Harry and the Potters. )

If you have a chance, have a couple of drinks, and go see this show.
