There's no point now, Carson Kressley just danced the dream tango with Anna Trebunskaya I didn't even know I'd been dreaming about. :(

So, when I'm not mainlining Japanese kids' superhero shows, my media intake tends to be queer cinema, because it tends either to be awesome, or to be awesomely bad. (And even when it's just mediocre, the pandering tends to be towards those who like their eye candy male, so there's at least that.)

Those of you who follow my twitter feed will already know, though, that I just encountered the most miserable piece of shit to ever call itself a movie. I have suffered the Star Wars Holiday Special. This was ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE WORSE.

I really don't even know if I can put the horror into words. Although, those of you who follow my twitter feed saw my attempts throughout. While there are some understandable descriptions of some of the ways in which this film is awful there, it's by NO means comprehensive. Merely scratching the surface.

The worst part is... you know what, scratch what I was going to say. The worst part is ALL OF IT. (Except the one actor, who was at some point in post-production, someone tried to make changes to make us think the movie was about him. It only made things worse, because then the movie WASN'T, but they'd gone out of their way to make sure we were wondering "what if?")

I don't even know, y'all.

(Someday, I hope to inflict this on a mass of people so that I'm not the only person I know who has suffered it. So no, you're not getting the name of it. Nyah.)

Instead, I've gotten two textbook derails, plus at least two-and-a-half "SEMANTICS" derails specific to the issue from someone I know isn't a troll, over on twitter.

GODDAMNIT.

(And this isn't even getting into the sexism from the show that started this.)

ETA: My crushing letdown is noted. How magnanimous.

So, something went weird with one of my drivers, and I had to factory-reset my computer.

I've lost everything, including the sonnets, which is a major loss. Even moreso than the mass of music that disappeared, and it's more upsetting than that I'll have to redownload my power rangers and sentai and the other series I was in the middle of.

Plus, I've lost all my bookmarks, so. Recommend sites?

ETA: YESSSSS I HAVE MY SONNETS. My laptop isn't actually networked to the printer in the house, so I emailed them to m'self to open on the computer connected to the printer and didn't delete the email. :D

Man, did I screw myself when I made two of the thrice-reused lines of the fifteenth sonnet require rhymes with "truth".

THERE ARE NO USEFUL RHYMES WITH TRUTH. I mean, I could have kept pairing the same two words, since the fifteenth sonnet did have a decent rhyme pair there, but I don't think I'd be graded well using the same rhyme pair FIVE TIMES. It'd be like rhyming a word with itself. It's just not done.

I'm going to wait until I have the final version of the project done before I post the sonnets here, BTW. I'll want to include the recording along with them.

Apartment stuff didn't work out, y'all. I'm moving back to Sandusky tomorrow.

As long as I get a job quick, I should still be okay to show up at Ohayocon, but obviously I won't be able to drive anyone.

Goddamnit. I'd found a job in Oxford, too. Just... not soon enough, I guess. December hates me.

"Don't come up on Wednesday," he says, "The weather will be shit. Come Tuesday."

Well, I did. And now I have a fucked rear-passenger region of car, and I'm sitting in a hotel (with wifi!) and hour and a half (or so) from home until my parents get me tomorrow.

Goddammit.

GODDAMNIT ERICK YOU SAID YOUR RENT WAS FOR CERTAIN TAKEN CARE OF.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO BE EVICTED IF YOU CAN'T GET THIS SORTED NOW

GET IT DONE NOW.

(PS: THANKS FOR WARNING ME THAT IF IT WASN'T SORTED I'D ONLY HAVE THREE DAYS TO FIGURE OUT WHERE TO GO AND HOW TO GET THERE. IT WAS AWESOME HOW I DIDN'T FIND OUT WHEN THE SUPER CALLED. OH, WAIT. YOU DIDN'T WARN ME, YOU FUCKING BASTARD.)

So, sometime Sunday, the tri-state area lost power. I've heard that anyone who gets their power from Duke Energy has lost it, and that's a lot of people. Now, the university got their power back for a few hours at around 10, and then lost it again around 2 (but they had backup generators at least running emergency lighting the whole time). Oxford outside the university has not had power since it first went out, and here's the possibility that it will continue to lack power for days.

Now, a lot of students live off-campus, and a lot of cell phones have run out of power recently or are about to, so many off-campus students are not going to have any reliable way to wake up in the morning.

The university cancelled classes today, but somewhere around 4-ish, they sent out texts over he emergency texting system letting students know that classes are on for tomorrow. Word passed quickly, as well as indignation.

Now, many of these students who live off-campus, having no electricity and therefore "nothing" to do in this electronic age, got drunk. And they're mad about class tomorrow. Now, I believe that most professors are going to be fairly lenient with off-campus students about attendance, especially with morning classes, but rather than be rational, these students have been "protesting" outside President Hodge's house for about an hour now.

Except, really, for the past 59 minutes or so, it's just been a fucking riot. And they chanted "Hell no, we won't go" at he cop for a while,for which they deserve to be shot. You don't get to reappropriate that for your drunken, special-snowflake protest about the fact that the University would like to continue doing what you pay them to do.

But other than this riot, I've been enjoying the extra time with my friends due to the outage (I'm stealing power and internet from their dorm right now.)
