So like, I moved and stuff! To another country! Crazy. I'm not really talking about it here, but if you want a link to the place where I am talking about it, PM me and I'll send the link your way.

Anyway, things are fine and I even have internet at home, HOORAY. Obviously, this is a good time to talk about LOST.

So I didn't really mention it before, but we did, in fact, finish LOST while I was still in the States. And the truth was, I didn't write anything down about it because I was... really, really underwhelmed. By pretty much all of season six, actually. I hated the mysticism faux-religiosity stuff, I hated the sudden reliance on "why?" "BECAUSE" tautologies, I hated the lack of anyone questioning anything and the lack of satisfying answers, I was disgruntled by the extreme emphasis on straight people romance, I was bothered by the inclusion of major plots that went nowhere, I was annoyed by new characters showing up for no reason at the expense of old ones, and actually kind of sad that there wasn't more Titus Welliver. Oh, and as much as I like Allison Janney, that was a really weird casting choice, and kind of brownfacey.

Anyway, as it turns out, at least one person shares almost all my issues, and decided to write a fix-it. Normally I don't like this sort of thing, but this guy(/lady?) pretty much just nails it. LOST: Season Six, done in an emotionally satisfying, non-mumbo-jumbo-y kind of way. I dig.

So I'm way behind in the midst of all this crazy IRL business, but today has been a pretty big day in fandom! Let's discuss.

The Emmys, Johnny Weir, Daisuke Takahashi, World of Warcraft )

There's a lot of other stuff I've been meaning to talk about, like how we finished LOST and how the Karate Kid was fucking awesome and how everything about The Last Airbender makes me want to weep blood, but that can all wait for a later date.

In the meantime, um... Work of Art is seriously the best new reality show around and you should all watch it, there's a Community marathon on NBC tonight and you should all watch it, and Mad Men is coming back ON THE DAY I LEAVE THE COUNTRY sob. But you should all watch it anyway.

:D

You guys, I am so excited about this I can't even stand it.

(For those who don't know, my current astral husband, Daisuke Takahashi, is having two new programs choreographed for him by my other current astral husband, Stephane Lambiel*. One of the programs is being described as "the story of a magical character who lives in the woods ... [who] meets, among others creatures, butterflies. But also a monster. He will fight it." JE SUIS EXCITE.)

*Someday I will learn to type accent marks, I swear.

Speaking of excite: Exactly one week till I'm back in NY, and exactly one month until I leave for Japan! OH MY GOD. I still have so much to do. D:

eta Oh also speaking of excite OH MY GOD NEW FUTURAMA NEW FUTURAMA NEW FUTURAMA I HAVEN'T WATCHED IT YET BUT WE ARE SO GOING TO TONIGHT.

eta2 I also forgot, we are now TWO EPISODES away from the end of LOST. Which means I'm past everything I've been spoiled for ( :( ) and oh man, two episodes, seriously. I have no idea how they're going to wrap this shit up in like three hours, damn.

The degree to which I cannot wait for this show is utterly stupid.

LOST continues at a breakneck pace, meanwhile! We're now ALL UP IN SEASON SIX, MAN. Last episode watched was "Dr. Linus." Holy wow, I think we'll be done by the end of the week.

CAN I JUST SAY, WITHOUT SPOILERS:

1) I REALLY DO NOT KNOW HOW LOCKE MADE IT ONTO EW'S "BEST CHARACTERS EVER" LIST AND BEN DIDN'T. BEN. BEN IS INCREDIBLE. I AM FIRMLY ON THE "JUST KEEP THROWING EMMYS AT MICHAEL EMERSON" BANDWAGON.

2) THE SUN/JIN STORYLINE IS MAKING ME WANT TO PUNCH EVERYONE IN THE FACE. OH MY GOD.
