I FEEL IT NECESSARY TO SHARE THIS GIF RIGHT NOW:
BECAUSE IT IS MY FAVORITE GLEE GIF THAT DOESN'T INCLUDE CHRIS OR J-GROFF (BECAUSE REALLY? TOTALLY UNFAIR TO COMPARE OTHER PEOPLE TO THOSE TWO). BUT I KIND OF WANT CORY AND HEATHER TO HAVE AWESOME, ADORABLE BABIES TOGETHER, BECAUSE I LOVE THEM BOTH A LOT BECAUSE THEY ARE ADORKABLE AND TOTALLY LOVABLE.
AND, UH, AGAIN THIS POST IS BASICALLY POINTLESS. BECAUSE EVEN THE NON-BORING PARTS OF MY LIFE ARE NOT AWESOME ENOUGH TO PUBLISH HERE. THEY BARELY QUALIFY FOR TWITTER. I SUPPOSE I SHOULD INFORM YOU GUYS THAT I CANNOT FLIP PEOPLE OFF
. SEE, I BROKE THE SECOND METATARSAL IN MY HAND WHEN I WAS A FRESHMAN (THE BONE IN THE HAND PART OF YOUR HAND THAT CONNECTS TO YOUR MIDDLE FINGER), AND YESTERDAY, I JAMMED MY RING FINGER IN MY BASKETBALL GAME (WHICH WE TOTALLY FUCKING WON) AND NOW NONE OF MY FINGERS WILL BEND PROPERLY AND FUCK MY LIFE THIS IS FRUSTRATING. <--- I don't know why this is in CAPSLOCK, except I forgot to take the key off and I don't want to retype all of it.
I also cuss a lot. More than normal people do. But it keeps me from going crazy, so I will probably continue to do so. That's why I put the warning in my profile, to avoid the whole easily-offended demographic. And if any of the easily offended demographic are still hanging around, uh, you should go check out my profile and then go read someone else's online journal.
HAVE A PICTURE OF ROB THOMAS TO MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER. HELL, HAVE TWO. EVEN COMMUNISTS LOVE ROB THOMAS.
CAUSE I KNOW YOU'RE ALL WONDERING, LONG-HAIRED ROB THOMAS IS WHAT REMUS LUPIN LOOKS LIKE IN MY HEAD. FOR FUCKING REALZ, Y'ALL. AND YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT THE ENTIRE HARRY POTTER SERIES IN MY HEAD IS BASED ON AN AU. THAT I'M WRITING. BECAUSE JKR DOESN'T UNDERSTAND HOW TO TAKE CARE OF OR PROPERLY USE HER BEST CHARACTERS, SO I HAVE TO DO IT FOR HER.
NO OFFENSE TO JKR, I LOVE HER AND SHE'S BRILLIANT. BUT I HAVE TO FIX THESE THINGS TO MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER AGAIN.
ALSO, MEN IN BLACK AND WHITE PICTURES SEEM TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO BE TWICE AS SEXY WITHOUT. EVEN. TRYING. UNLESS IT'S A CLOSE UP ON THIER EYES BECAUSE, HELLO, I FUCKING LOVE BOYS WITH BEAUTIFUL EYES. LIKE ROB THOMAS. AND NOW I'VE BROUGHT THAT SHIT FULL CIRCLE. /end rant
And I'm not tagging again. I will go back and tag an old post to make up for it. Maybe. Just go stare at the pretty GIF and the Rob Thomas
pictures and stop
asking so many ridiculous questions.
EDITTED: ALSO 'BUY A DOG' BY LUCE IS LIKE PRETTY MUCH THE GREATEST LOVE SONG EVER, AND I NEED TO FIND A FANMIX TO PUT IT ON AND YOU NEED TO ALL GO BUY IT LIKE, LAST WEEK.
AND HEATHER MORRIS IS FUCKING AMAZING (AND SO ARE ALL THE OTHER KIDS ON THIS SHOW, ESPECIALLY NAYA RIVERA AND CORY AND CHRIS), AND YOU SHOULD WATCH THE VIDEO THAT THE GIF CAME FROM BECAUSE IT IS EPIC AND HAS JOSS WHEDON. AND WHO DOESN'T LIKE JOSS WHEDON? COMMUNISTS PROBABLY: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra3CLcbh_uU
Uh, I have nothing interesting to say, but I'm writing, so I'm procrastinating. I need like a meme or something to do, but since I have like four friends on this, I never get tagged for memes. Sooooo.....
HAVE SOME PICTURES OF CHORD OVERSTREET, WHO IS REALLY SEXY AND HAS UBER DOPE HAIR? WHO COULD SAY NO TO THAT? COMMUNISTS PROBABLY.
I KNOW, YOU'RE ALL LIKE 'THANKS ZOE, FOR THE SEXY PHOTOS OF THAT KID FROM GLEE WITH THE WEIRD NAME BUT, UH, WHY THE CHEESECAKE ARE YOU WASTING OUR TIME WITH THIS?' BECAUSE I AM FUCKING INSANE AND SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN ANYWHERE TO VOICE MY THOUGHTS THAT CANNOT BE IMMEDIATELY CENSORED BY THE PROPER AUTHORITIES.
SOMETHING TO GIVE THIS POST MEANING: I FIXED MY BACKGROUND SO IT'S NOT A STUPID AD ANYMORE AND IS JUST BLACK. AND I UPDATED MY PROFILE, AND CHANGED THE NAME OF MY JOURNAL TO JUNU CAUSE IT IS EPIC. DID I MENTION THE PICTURES OF THE GOOD LOOKING BOY? SCROLL UP A LITTLE AND STARE AND STOP ASKING FOR MEANING. NOT EVERYTHING GOOD HAS TO HAVE A PURPOSE.
DON'T DO DRUGS. APPRECIATE CHORD'S HAIR. READ TERRY PRATCHETT. LISTEN TO JULIA NUNES. BE BAD-ASS. HAVE A SEXY GIF FOR YOUR TIME.

YO, GUESS WHAT HOOKERS? I THINK I'VE MENTIONED THIS, BUT I IS IN POSSESSION OF A TWITTER: http://twitter.com/mzmtiger
YOU SHOULD CHECK IT OUT, BECAUSE SOMETIMES I STAY UP REALLY LATE AND TWEET EPIC SHIT. AND SOMETIMES I DO THAT DURING NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS TOO. I'M ALSO NOW FOLLOWING JUSTIN BIEBER, CAUSE I'M ACTUALLY THAT COOL AND HE HAS PERFECT HAIR. I DON'T EVEN CARE WHAT YOU PROSTITUTES SAY, IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS SCULPTED BY THE LOVE CHILD OF MICHEANGELO (SHIT I HOPE THAT'S SPELLED RIGHT) AND SOME OTHER REALLY AWESOME SCULPTURE, OR MAYBE JESUS. IT WAS OBVIOUSLY DONE BY THE SAME GUY WHO DOES J-GROFF'S HAIR.
PLUS, YOU'LL GET TO SEE ONE SIDE OF THE UBER DOPE CONVERSATIONS I HAVE WITH MY UBER DOPE FRIENDS. SO COME ON DOWN AND JOIN THE PARTY HOES. WE DON'T HAVE ANY BEVERAGES TO OFFER YOU, BUT I SAY. EPIC. SHIT. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?
IT'S SORT OF WHAT THIS WOULD BE WITHOUT STEROIDS. I'M NOT REALLY SURE HOW ELSE TO PUT IT. I'M GETTING OUT OF PRACTICE WITH TAGGING TOO. I WILL WORK ON THIS.
STOP READING MY STUPID THOUGHTS AND GO READ TERRY PRATCHETT INSTEAD HOOKERS. MOIST VON LIPWIG FOR LIFE.
I sort of apologize for insinuating several times throughout this post that you readers are sexually promiscuous and also that you will trade sexual favors for money. But I totes warned you in my profile that it would happen, so don't be offended.
BUT O M JESUS, I SPELLED BOTH INSINUATING AND PROMISCUOUS RIGHT IN ONE GUESS. BOW BEFORE MY EPIC SPELLING POWERS. ALSO, DON'T JUDGE ME THAT I LIKE THE WORD TOTES. YOU KNOW YOU DO TOO HOOKERS.
My uncle let me borrow his copy of "The Color of Magic" by Terry Prachett for Christmas (and yes, the uncle that let's me borrow his books is the cool uncle in my family), the first book in the Discworld series.
AND O MY FUCK HAVE YOU READ THE DISCWORLD SERIES? CAUSE IT'S PRETTY MUCH BEAUTIFUL AND YOU NEED TO READ IT LIKE, LAST WEEK. IT'S LIKE A LOVE SONG TO ALL THE MESSED UP, RIDICULOUS THINGS IN HUMANITY, BY TOTALLY POKING FUN AT THEM IN AN ACTUALLY FUNNY WAY.
And then, when I finished "The Color of Magic", I asked for another one (you don't have to read them in order, isn't that awesome!!!?) and he gave me "Going Postal."
AND OOOOO MYYYYYYYYY JESSSSSSUUUUUUSSSSSS FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKK. JESUS HERNANDEZ HOLY CHRIST, IT'S SO AWESOME. THE MAIN CHARACTER IS MOIST VON LIPWIG (AND YEAH THAT'S HIS REAL FUCKING NAME, HOW AWESOME IS THAT), A CON-MAN/THIEF/
SECRET BADASS WHO IS HANGED TO WITHIN AN INCH OF HIS LIFE, BUT INSTEAD OF BEING DEAD, THE PATRICIAN OF ANKH-MORPORK (WHO IS UBER DOPE COOL, IF A BIT OF A TYRANT) IS LIKE "HEY, YOU'RE THE NEW POSTMASTER, AND YOU HAVE A CHOICE... GOVERNMENT WORK OR DEATH." AND SO IT'S BASICALLY A BOOK ABOUT A POST OFFICE.
BUT IT IS SOOOOO AWESOME. THERE'S HUGE PILES OF LETTERS FROM LIKE FOUR DECADES OF MAIL, AND SO MOIST HAS TO TOTALLY REDO THE WHOLE SYSTEM, AND HE HAS CRAZY PEOPLE TO HELP HIM (BUT THEY'RE AWESOME TOO). AND MOIST VON LIPWIG IS KIND OF A NOT SO SECRET SECRET BADASS THE WHOLE TIME. HE WEARS A GOLDEN SUIT AND RUNS AROUND LIKE CRAZY AND INVENTS PAPER STAMPS AND HAS AN EPIC ROMANCE.
OH, I HAVEN'T MENTIONED MOIST VON LIPWIG'S EPIC ROMANCE WITH MISS ADORA BELLE DEARHEART (AND YEAH, THAT'S SERIOUSLY HER NAME. DOESN'T IT KIND OF MAKE YOU WANT TO NAME YOUR KID THAT FOR A FRACTION OF A SECOND?) WELL, LET ME CORRECT THAT. IT'S SOOO AWESOME, IT'S NOT MOOPY OR DUMB OR SHOVED IN THERE TO APPEASE ROMANTICS. IT'S REAL AND IT'S AWESOME, AND OH WHAT'S THE WORD? OH YEAH, EPIC.
SO YEAH, GO READ IT. AND THERE'S ANOTHER MOIST VON LIPWIG BOOK, MAKING MONEY, THAT'S JUST AS AWESOME. I LOVE IT SO MUCH, AND TERRY PRACHETT IS AN EPIC GENIUS.
Yeah, Moist von Lipwig is CAPSLOCK worthy epic. I'm going to write modern, high-school AU fic for it, as soon as I'm done with my Glee fic, Welcome to the Five Steps to The Rest of Your Life. Which could take years at the rate I'm writing it now, but hopefully after basketball, it'll pick up. I will finish it. I will, and then I will write fic that hopefully is 1/1000th as awesome as the two actual Moist von Lipwig books are.
Okay, so I'm not normally a fan of rap. It's not that I hate it, or that I don't have rap songs that I like, but I don't go actively searching for new stuff, or listen to rap heavy radio stations. But I think I'm in love with both Lupe Fiasco and B.o.B. I'm not even really sure what it is, but I can't get enough of their music. It is a strange experience for me.
In other news, I've been itching to re-watch The Sing-Off, so maybe I will do some sort of giant squee about it over the weekend. And I know you're all very excited for that.
Also, I love iTunes Gift Cards, because I can just buy and buy with out worrying about it. It is immensely fun. And Andy and Erin need to get back together on The Office soon, because Gabe makes my sad and Andy/Erin makes me happy. And I've decided I like both Perfect Couples and Parks and Recreation. And Community is still as perfect as it ever was. Now, I just want Glee to come back and sing me pretty songs again.
This entry was rather pointless, but I'm bored and this journal was just asking to be updated. If you like Nate/Sophie from Leverage, I've posted a couple of fics over at nathan_sophie
, and I'm not the only one. So if you've been looking for fic, you should check there and JOIN THE PARTY, HOOKERS. WE HAVE ANGST AND
UST (OR DO WE?)
Almost made it an entire post without CAPSLOCK. But what's an entry here without a little ~CAPSLOCK~? Also, ~~~TILDES~~~, you know you love them.
SING-OFF DON'T YOU EVER FUCKING DO THAT TO ME AGAIN. I MEAN IT, I ALMOST DIED.
ON THE OTHER HAND:
THIS GIF CAN'T EVEN PROPERLY EXPRESS MY JOY, BUT I CAN'T FIND ANY OTHERS AT THE MOMENT
. OH, LOOK, I FOUND SOME. JUST LOOK AT SID'S FACE IN MY ICON. NOW TIMES IT BY TEN AND IMAGINE MY FACE, YOU HOOKERS. YEAH I WAS THAT EXCITED THE WHOLE DAMN SHOW
FUCK THE HELL TO THE YEAH. THE SING-OFF IS SO RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING THAT I WANT TO JUMP UP AND DOWN A LOT. I JUST WANT TO LIKE, FEED AFRICANS AND HUG PUPPIES AND READ TO CHILDREN. THEY TOTALLY MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE AND I FUCKING LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. I'LL BE BACK WITH COHERENT THOUGHTS LATER.

All right, let's do a little review. I am by no means an expert, but I've been involved in music for quite awhile now, and these are my personal thoughts. They're by no means anything professional.
Groove For Thought: Their bassist, Jeff, is literally one of the best bassists I've ever heard. I mean, that's sick. Humans should not be able to do that. I almost wanted them to win just based on his bass lines. You could like, see the upright bass. Honest to God, at first I thought they were cheating and using instruments, he was that good. I love this group's vocals, between Peter and Amanda, I mean those are really amazing. And their second song this week was gorgeous. Their version of Cooler Than Me almost makes me weep with happiness, it's that cool. These guys are just coolness and sex and everything that's good about jazz. And I love their jazzy take on everything, and I loved the jazzy take on "Changes". And Amanda's voice was amazing, but that stutter and the fact that they didn't rock out didn't help them, and I knew they were in trouble. I'm sad to see them go, and not just because I will miss Jeff's absolutely sick basslines. JEFF WINS. YOU LOSE. PLAY THAT BASS BABY, SWAY THAT BOOTY. And goatee guy, who sang the Swan Song (I don't think we know his name), but, God, that dude was hilarious. I laughed every time he came on screen.
Committed: I'm honestly just not a fan of these guys. They have amazing vocals, I mean, just some killer harmonies, but I just don't think their stage presence is the same as the others. They have awesome vocals, but I just can't get behind them like I can the other groups. I was disappointed in their Police song, because they tried to do it like a love song, and it's not. It's an obsession song, and I didn't feel it. I felt Satisfaction, I felt Creep, I even felt Pour Some Sugar, but I didn't feel that song.
The Backbeats: COURTNEY. KENTON. They win. Other than that, I, again, am just not feeling this group. Their vocals are tight, the choreo is pretty good, but I just don't feel these 'emotional' songs they're doing. I was totally put off of their 'The Script' song, because I really feel like they needed a guy to just growl that. I mean, just take all that pain and growl and soar, and I was disappointed in their arrangement. But Courtney's beat box is awesome, and I wish that all of them had had Kenton and Courtney's energy on 'Love Shack' but they just haven't impressed me. I feel like Kenton was really into it, and Courtney was at the end, but I feel like the rest kind of just wanted to get it over with. Talented for sure, but just not the stage presence I think an a cappella group needs.
On The Rocks: Not the engaging group of college boys the The Bubs were, but very funny, obviously talented, and Alex, their beatboxer, was amazing, especially on Pour Some Sugar. And I'm not quite sure how I feel about the judges' stuff for them. One second they want them to be artists, and then they want them to be hardcore, edgy rock. But I really do love these guys, and I'm glad they moved on. Their guilty pleasure was really just fabulously cheesy ballad and I totally felt what Shawn was saying.
Jerry Lawson and the Talk of the Town: These guys are perfect. They don't try and fool you with fancy arrangements or choreo, they just go out and sing. They're just perfect. The falsetto, the bass, Jerry's voice, that scream, their song choices, the way they just own, how they have a unique stage presence, just everything. I'm just blown away by everything they do. "Save The Last Dance" is just perfect, and every other song they do just leaves you wanting more. There's nothing more I can say.
Street Corner Symphony: THEY WIN. NO SERIOUSLY. I LOVE THEM ALMOST TOO MUCH. I mean, Jeremy's vocals are out of this world. He's just a whole 'nother level of singer. You can just tell how talented he is the minute he opens his mouth. And I just love how they are together. Jo's beats are amazing, and the instrumentation is just awesome. And they make you feel every song. "Creep" was a masterpiece, and I've never felt more Irish than during "Come On Eileen". And I have strong Irish background. Every time Jon McLemore or Jeremy opens his mouth, I want to like hug babies and adopt puppies and promote world peace, it makes me that happy. I love how the tall/non-Jon beatboxer drinks water instead of a beer. I love that there were like nine tempos in "Eileen" and they handled it effortlessly. And have I mentioned how they make you feel, like deep-down-in-your-heart-and-soul-in-the-way-that-will-stay-with-you-forever kind of feel. THEY'RE MY FAVORITES, AND NOT JUST BECAUSE THEIR NAME IS A ROB THOMAS SONG. THAT JUST MAKES THEM EVEN BETTER.
And I love these judges. They're funny and present but they don't steal the show totally. And have I mentioned that I'M IN LOVE WITH BEN FOLDS AND HIS HAIR? I FEEL LIKE IT NEEDS TO BE SAID LOTS.

I love Leverage. I love Glee. I love Psych. I love The Amazing Race. There are plenty of awesome shows. And The West Wing will forever be the the greatest thing to ever appear on a television. It was perfect, even when it wasn't.
BUT THE SING-OFF. IT'S JUST BEAUTIFUL. IT'S JUST TOO AMAZING FOR ACTUAL HUMAN WORDS. I DON'T WANT ANY OF THESE GROUPS TO EVER GO HOME BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST TOO AMAZING. AND I'M TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY I LOVE WITH JERRY LAWSON, EVERYONE IN STREET CORNER SYMPHONY AND BEN FOLDS. AND BEN FOLDS'S HAIR. IT'S ABOUT AS CLOSE TO PERFECT AS MUSICIAN HAIR GETS.
WILL TAG WHEN I'M NOT WATCHING THE SING-OFF. IT COULD BE A WHILE.
