Super-Fam Meetup, Post #2

It has been brought to my attention by athenesolon that the 2013 Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL is being held June 6-9, not the week of the June 14 Man of Steel premiere, as I hoped.

So if we were to still meetup for the movie on June 14, where should we do that?

Poll #1872263 Super-Fam Meetup Poll

Where do you think we should meet? (Select as many as apply)

Go to Metropolis, IL anyway
Meet Mid-west
Meet South
Meet West
Other (will explain in comments)
I probably can't attend regardless of location

I hope we can narrow something down by the end of 2012. :)

Fall TV 2012!

Is it that time again? Yeah, I think it is. VIEW THE INSANITY OF WHAT I INTEND TO ATTEMPT TOWATCH.

D=DVR or streaming
T=Taste testing (mostly will be "D")

Sleep deprivation may be neededCollapse )

HONESTLY, I have no idea whether that Tuesday schedule is going to happen or not. D: WHY ALL NEW COMEDIES ON TUESDAY, NETWORKS?

What are you all watching this fall?


To My Assignee!

This is a general post for the people assigned to me in tw_holidays and [community profile] grimm_exchange, if you'd like a little more info about my tastes.



Lost AIM access

I just permanently lost access to my AIM account. If you had me on there, and nowhere else, would you let me know, so I can rebuild my contact list?

Thanks. ♥

Amazing Spider-Man thoughts

I'm so glad I got to see the movie on opening day (although I wasn't lucky enough to attend screeners like SOME OF YOU). I didn't really want to be any more biased toward it than I already had been.

In short:
I really liked it!

It is not unproblematic, but when is a superhero movie ever unproblematic, even The Avengers. So don't look to me for well-thought-out meta analysis on what they did right and wrong vis-a-vis the comics or serious issues. I'm not fannishly built that way - I'm looking forward to my friends who ARE built that way to make those posts, to which I will probably respond oh-so-thoughtfully: 'THIS.'

Before my big list of likes/dislikes, let me describe my opinion process:

Reboot? WHY. I may boycott this --> Hmm, Spectacular Spider-Man (the toon) is starting to sell me on Peter/Gwen coming first, and it IS canon --> I write two Peter/Gwen SSM fics and I can multi-ship Peter with either Gwen or MJ --> Emma Stone is in it? As GWEN, not MJ? Her Easy A character is such an MJ, but okay --> After seeing the Social Network, I can see Andrew Garfield's appeal --> COMIC-CON HAPPENS AND ANDREW GARFIELD STEALS MY HEART --> Tumblr gifsets and video clips make me fall for Emma/Andrew --> People at advance screenings being very positive --> Finding out from an f-lister about how the secret!ID plot is handled --> I have to see this opening day!

Now for the not-very-meta, but definitely spoilery, thoughtsCollapse )

What were your thoughts? Link me to your reviews/meta/posts. I didn't come out of the film with any decent plot bunnies, but you may be seeing fic from me this summer...

To the Super-Fam

(most of whom don't hang out here as much anymore, but I'm posting anyway)

Is it time to plan a Man of Steel premiere week meetup for next June? I know some people (me) need about a year's notice to plan trips.

Maybe someone else is already doing this and I missed it?

Anyway, if no one else is planning it already, I guess I volunteer to organize. :) Give me suggestions for a location range, date, time, etc.

All comers, not just the 2007-2008 group, whoever is interested, please comment. Pass it along to those who may have left LJ. I'll try to start PM-ing people who I think might be interested that I don't hear from as well.

Summer TV Marathon Report, Pt. 2

Okay. So I finished two series since the last report on Teen Wolf: Bob's Burgers and Revenge. I enjoyed both!

Thoughts! Not spoilery, really.Collapse )

So now I'd like to try to watch It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - but it doesn't appear to be streaming on any of my services. I know it's in syndication, but I really like to watch things in order! Any suggestions?
