Sorsha cuddled up to watch My Little Pony Friendship is Magic with me earlier:

Evidently she's a Pinkie Pie fan.

I bought new sneakers today! This is a momentous occasion, since I don't like spending money, but I desperately needed new ones, and my eyes turned into hearts when I saw these. Here, I found a picture of them. HOORAY FOR YELLOW. They make me smile to look at.

Also, I finished Avatar: The Last Airbender today and was very sad. I cried actual tears in the third to last episode, when, um, one character was reunited with another? I don't want to spoil! But it was so good! I just want like twenty more seasons, all of the same quality, with the same voice actors. Is that so much to ask?

My new icon pretty much encapsulates how I feel about the pairing it pictures, the show, and my shoes.
mizzmarvel: (tortoise wins and don't you forget it)
I've been watching Avatar: The Last Airbender for a while now, and I'm down to only having one disc left to finish up the series. And of course, OMG SO GOOD.

But now I have a dilemma. Do I finish out the series by watching it on Netflix, where it's streaming for free, or wait for the last disc to be mailed to me so I can stretch it out a tiny bit more?

I just don't want it to end. :(

I'd say it's not a surprise that my two favorite Disney movies of the last twenty years (Jesus God, that excludes The Little Mermaid...I feel so old) are the ones with the "she's her father's daughter" kinds of storylines.

We have The Princess and the Frog, which I won't go into any more detail about because it's still new enough that I don't want to spoil it, but needless to say I cry twice every time I see it. And then we have Mulan, which, hoo boy. "The greatest gift of all is having you for a daughter." Cue tears. Forever. Even before my dad died, I could not get through this scene without crying.

Least favorite Disney movies of the last twenty years: ones featuring asteroids and protagonists who kill mama animals. I am not fond of either of these things at all.

I was hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory, but then she kicked me out when someone she likes better came over. WHAT A JERK, Y'ALL.

This was after we spent like 15 minutes in the baby clothes department at Target, deciding what clothes Ted and Booster pick out for tiny Rip. No, seriously. Then our uteruses exploded. It was messy.

Then we watched Space Jam. I think she enjoyed it somewhat more than I did.

Then I came home and found that [livejournal.com profile] caia_comica had sent me a Valentine with Aquaman riding a shark. And it was awesome. THE END.
mizzmarvel: (good god bones - entwashian)
I watched an extraordinary (for me, since I have the attention span of a gnat) number of movies in the past two days.

Saturday: Up in 3D at the theatre, Cinderella III: A Twist in Time (believe it or not, pretty decent for a straight to DVD sequel), Peter Pan and Hook at [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory's house.

Sunday: Edge of Seventeen (I've had this movie from Netflix for over a month now), and then from Netflix's Instant Watch, Born Into Brothels (really sad) and the first disc of the first season of Avatar, which isn't a movie, per se, but certainly awesome.

I think I was going to write more, but now I feel unaccountably nauseous.
mizzmarvel: (ducklings + chaps = YAAA)
Mickey Mouse died.

I really can't say how sad this makes me. Not only was Wayne an amazing voice actor, he also seemed to be a genuinely sweet, all-around nice person. Plus, he was actually for-real married to the voice of Minnie Mouse. That's one of those too good to be true moments in life that is true. He was my Mickey, the one I grew up listening to, and it's hard to picture having another voice.

So this icon is for his life, not for his death.

Today [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory and I watched ten episodes of Darkwing Duck, and it was amazing. Negaduck calls everyone a knob, and it's wonderful. Knob is a word that truly needs to be inserted into my everyday vocabulary.

Also, it occurs to me that if I do actually move out here, I'll need to buy a TV and something for the TV to sit on. And I'll really try to work it into my budget to have cable as well as Internet (which is a necessity), because, weirdly, even if I'm alone, having a TV on makes me feel connected to the outside world somehow. If I'm completely alone and without a TV, I feel like I want to climb the walls. For whatever reason, watching a DVD doesn't help.

And eventually, a couch, I guess. But I'd rather have a TV than a couch. I'm such an American.

We watched Justice League: The New Frontier tonight, and it was fairly awesome. I wasn't familiar with the storyline going in, and since we didn't check the rating, the sometimes extreme violence caught us off guard and was therefore completely hilarious.

And I must say, Barry speaking with Neil Patrick Harris' voice makes me only love him more. Other than Kevin Conroy as Batman, I think the Flashes get the best voice actors.
mizzmarvel: (ducklings + chaps = YAAA)
During one of our periodic insanely long phone conversations, [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory and I decided that early 1990s Matthew Perry should play Drake Mallard in an extremely nonexistent live action Darkwing Duck film.

We eventually lost interest in the topic, but I think it's kind of hilarious that it made me want to watch Friends for the first time in years.

(We never did definitively decide on a Launchpad. [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory suggested the Rock and I thought maybe Vin Diesel, but now I think Ethan Embry just needs to bunk the hell up for this career-building role. I mean, look at him. That's a LP face if I ever saw one.)
mizzmarvel: (evo is wicked)
I found Season 3 of X-Men: Evolution at a store yesterday, and since it was cheaper than listed on Amazon, I went ahead and bought it. I hadn't seen most of these episodes more than once (these ones aired while I was in college), and they're kind of a hoot to watch now. The show only debuted about seven years ago or so, and the quality already seems to suck in comparison to the cartoons coming out now.

But anyway, the best part of rewatching them is the awareness that Alessandro Juliani, aka FELIX GAETA from BSG, is the voice of Gambit. I was always kind of meh about this Gambit, but now the thought of Mr. Gaeta in the studio, recording Gambit's little action noises ("Ugh! Oof!") gives me a smile brighter than the Vegas strip.

Also, this reminds me that I really need a Gaeta icon.

The first thing I thought after seeing this headline was that, somehow, this would probably be the result of Max/Louie mpreg.

My second thought was that I didn't care, because that duckling is absolutely adorable. Intellectually, I know ducks are some of the hardest pets to keep, and that they're filthy and loud and probably don't get affectionate like a dog or a cat would, but I doubt I'll ever get over the initial instinct to go, "OMG ducky! I will call you Quackers!"

Anyway, speaking of which - I've had A Goofy Movie sitting here to be watched since Tuesday. I need to get around to seeing it; it would probably make me feel better.

ETA: Also, while I'm at it, thanks to the anon person who vgifted me, and to [livejournal.com profile] suyari for the batch of cookies. Christmas cookies in February! Mmm.

There was more Veronica Mars to be had at [livejournal.com profile] entwashian's house today. I'm still liking it! Through two Saturdays, we've gotten through about half of the first season. It's a tad predictable, and the teenagers are perhaps a mite too clever for the average high schooler - I mean, it's one thing if Veronica exchanges some puns and intelligent turns of phrase with her dad, but quite another if Johnny Teenager is spouting verbal barbs worthy of Oscar Wilde - but hey, that's part of the entertainment, I suppose.

But more importantly, I was given some crudely molded bits of plastic - in the shape of Darkwing Duck, Launchpad, Gosalyn, and Megavolt! Gosalyn and Megavolt appear to be doing the hula, while Launchpad approves heartily with a thumbs-up and Darkwing poses mysteriously and cock-eyed. I LOVE THEM.

I am very used to feeling bad for no reason, but tonight I was startled to realize that I was happy and smiling (!) for no reason. A good day!

My, uh, recent discussions with [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory have made me nostalgic for what was once an important part of my childhood - the Disney Afternoon. Everyday after school, I could run home, turn to KCAL 9, and be treated to several hours of high-quality half-hour Disney cartoons. In the early '90s, with a Beavis and Butthead threat rapidly approaching, a lot of kids were encouraged to watch these shows. And that was just fine, because these shows were awesome.

I considered covering all the shows shown in the DA block - there aren't that many - but I slowly came to realize that, a) I don't really remember all of them very well, b) There are ones I never watched much (Gummi Bears being the big one), and c) Screw it, this is all going to be Duck and Goofy-related.

DuckTales )
Darkwing Duck )
Goof Troop )
Quack Pack )

I'm trying to do a little writing every day, to get back in the mood. Uh, this counts.
mizzmarvel: (evo is wicked)
I'm listening to the first season of X-Men: Evolution as I pack, and I have to say that it's still one of my favorites. It's incredibly cheesy at times, but still very entertaining. I am also shameless enough to say that I still wistfully hope that, one day, in the defunct Evo canon, Cyclops and Rogue will get together. Her crush on him is so bittersweet. Come on, let the moody goth girl get her man.

Oh, and I don't see how it'll be possible to get all of my stuff into the back of the car, and I think I had a panic attack earlier. I am feverishly throwing out things I'd really rather keep, and am now eying my cardboard cutout of the hobbits with grim resignation. I think my time with them has come to an end.

ETA: Also, apparently I collect bottles of water. Number of full water bottles I've located in my room: seventeen.

I've pretty much got everything situated into areas designated for items I'll be keeping, and those that'll be left somehow. I haven't taken most of the posters down yet, though, because if I do I think I'll lose it. They're the only things in the room that're still familiar.
mizzmarvel: (puck ain't so happy)
I was trying to look for some decent Gargoyles caps for an icon or two (there ain't many, I can you that), when I got stuck on Station 8's Ask Greg feature, where you can ask the show's creator questions, and maybe a couple years from now he'll answer it. (And man, does he come off as a prick in a lot of these. Jeez.)

Anyway, here's a new development, which I missed during my 5+ years of general absence from Gargoyles fandom:

Well, with a name like 'Lex'... )
mizzmarvel: (blue - ickyblue)
I realized tonight that I could use my Animation Shop to cap cartoons I have on CD. Really, I'm not dumb, it just takes me a while to put two and two together. So, of course X-Men: Evolution was experimented with first.

Now for some random caps from two episodes.

Forge clearly brushes with Colgate )

Kurt goes, 'Uh.' )

For my After Xavier and [livejournal.com profile] babysit peeps:

Tell me at least one thing about my RP characters that I don't know.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] teza.

Also, I went to CVS with my roommate and somehow walked out as the proud new owner of a Mummies Alive! DVD. Watching this show before school every morning was a big part of my life during, say, the eighth grade or so. I'm sure it was be just as awesome now as it was then. Um.

Now, if I can just get some Gargoyles, Extreme Ghostbusters, X-Men: the Animated Series, Batman Beyond, and all of the X-Men: Evolution, my life would be pretty sweet.

ETA: Okay, I'm sorry, but...the titles of the four episodes on this DVD.

1. Ra, Ra, Ra
2. Sleepwalk Like an Egyptian
3. Pack to the Future [they're camping]
4. The Gift of Geb

Thank you, Mummies Alive. Thank you.

I was told recently that I look like an anime character. Not a specific one, just an anime character in general, because of my long hair and unintentional poses. Also, perhaps the fact that my eyes are as large as dinner plates? Well, not really. And I don't see it, but I took it as a compliment.

In fact, one of the best compliments I ever got was that if I were a cartoon character, I'd be Pepper Ann.

It occurs to me that if I were a cartoon character, I could potentially hook up with Matt Bluestone (Gargoyles) or Terry McGuinness (Batman Beyond), the two hottest toons around. But probably not, especially since my hair would now clash with Matt's.

Dad called today. I told him what happened in the last X-Men: Evo, and when I described the scenes of the X-Men in the future, he asked:

"Did they show Cyclops wearing a sash that says 'World's Biggest Weenie?'"

He wants me to fly home for Christmas, but I'm too scared to fly by myself. I hate flying so much. I'm going to try to look into taking the train, which would take three days each way, and the closest train station is in Illinois, apparently. Or I could try and find my pal Darrin, who's also from Anaheim, and fly home with him. I'd still be terrified. I don't know, three days of boredom still seems better than about ten hours of extreme fear and discomfort.

Comic Con already sent us our registration info for next year. Without my even suggesting, Dad already figures that we'll go all four days next year and just get a motel room about halfway there or so. I really do have the greatest dad.

Oh, and today's ladybug death count: 102 on or near the windowsill.
