I'm a blubbering mess right now. Internet was renewed for the month which means I've got bandwidth for today, and maybe a bit of tomorrow before it runs out and I'm stuck with the patetic speed of 32kbps. I used it to watch Doctor Who. Probably means bandwidth will have been used up by the time I can watch H50... Really, I need unlimited dl internet.

Another thing that helped a great deal in getting over all these feels was the sneak peak for Monday's H50 ep, 3.02. Really, only Steve and Danny bromance can be of any help right now.

This is my attempt at some coherent thoughts about yesterday's episode. There will be massive spoilers of course, so don't read on unless you really don't care if your fun is ruined.

The most important game in the history of Corinthians has ended. After 102 years, finally, Corithians fans can say the curse is broken with the 2 BEAUTIFUL goals scored by Emerson, our national hero, winner, record-breaker and a champion in every team he goes to.

Next year: Chelsea in Japan.

Now we can say we have every title it's possible for a South American team to have.

I'd overload this post with images, but my connection is hanging by a thread and I won't push my luck.

Happiest day in a fan's life.

Probably not.

BEWARE! Long fangirly ramble ahead. It will probably not make sense. And I will probably not even use commas.

I watched it for the third time yesterday and it was just as awesome. My mom and brother came too and they loved it! Mom came back home saying how awesome RDJ is and that he is hilarious, how HOT Chris Evans has become since the first time we saw him on screen on Cellular, that the Cap really shows his talent in playing a variety of characters, that Mark Ruffalo is the best Hulk so far, that he is to cute, that Thor looks like Brad Pitt except better, and that the 'arrow shooting guy' is really cool and that DC needs to learn how to make movies because she wants a Justice League film to top Avengers and I said 'no way that's gonna happen, mom'. We went back discussing why DC movies usually fail at box office and Marvel ones break it. Now she wants to watch Thor and Captain America.

Isn't it awesome to come from a family of geeks? Sure, mom isn't as fangirly as I am (that is probably impossible), but she does like the prettiness. Her obsession is Johnny Depp and she has seen every single movie he has ever made lots of times and owns most of them.

All in all, it was a pretty good Mother's Day, even though she actually had to pay for my brother's ticket, lol. And she also had to cook for us instead of the other way arround. And she got no presents because we are all totally broke. But we were happy and had fun. That's what matters.

Oh, and my sister's new boyfy invited us to go watch a movie on IMAX one of these days. Exciting!
x_erikah_x: (avengers)
Okay, I saw this movie on Sunday and I still have no words for it. I have read many wonderful reviews that express everything I think and feel a million times better than I can hope to express.

Every time I think about this movie my mind just goes

before it shuts down from awesome overload.

Let me see if I can express my love for this movie: it's the awesomest awesome that ever awesomed in the history of awesome. Think of something awesome then put a thousand more awesomes in it and it still won't be as awesome as this movie.

It's perfect and flawless. Everyone has their own space to shine. The Hulk STOLE the movie. I was really so worried about Mark Ruffalo, but he totally pulled it off. The Black Widow was another concern, but she was totally kick ass too and the actress was able to show the depth of her character. I really don't know anything about the comic books and she had me very intrigued about her past and her story with Hawkeye. They NEED to make that movie! Loki was creepy and sad, Thor was great being a little torn about the love for his brother and his need to save the planet and I don't think I need to say anything about RDJ. He's always awesome. And lastly, here is Teh Captain. The only thing I need to say is that he is my favorite from now on. I'm sorry, Tony, you are great and amazing, but the Cap stole my heart.

For a more indepth review that expresses my opinion to the letter you can check it out in [livejournal.com profile] sangate's LJ but beware it's full of of spoilers.

My holiday was extremely boring. I just stayed home without my laptop, all the time trying to stay online on my phone. Stupid service was intermitent at best most of the time.

New year finally officially started in Brazil. In here we have a saying that the year only starts after Carnaval. Classes will start on Saturday. Relief! Finally I'll have something to do!

My boredom was the trigger for me to do something that I've been wanting to for a long time. I've planned it since last year, but money has been short. The fact that my sister is now working in a department store does not help. At all. And she is evil enough to tell me all the sales, special days with insane discounts and new products that arrive. Damn her!

On Monday they held a sale and my sister said they would have 10 Samsung LCD TVs (and only 10) for a price that made me want to scream in frustration. She said that she could reserve one for me if I wanted and that the sale would help her a LOT with reaching her quota. Then my mom decided to be evil and offered to buy it in her credit card and that I only had to start paying in July when I could, if I could. Damn her for being such an amazing mom! I'll try very hard to pay her back if I manage to fill my day off with extra classes.

And now she just called saying my sister said my TV and DVD player has arrived at the store and that she is going to pick them up and also bring me lunch! Awesome mom or what?

Now I'll have something to do.

I've been having far too much fun uploading new icons. Check it out.

F-list love

I'd like to leave big squishy hugs for [livejournal.com profile] leesa_perrie and [livejournal.com profile] timespirit for being awesome and giving me extra userpic space till 2013. OMG! *jumps up and down* I keep uploading icons and the space is neverending!!!

Also, I found out there'll be another Supernatural convention in Brazil next year and the confirmed guests are Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard, Mark Pellegrino and Richard Speight Jr (AKA Gabriel). O.M.G. I NEED TO GO. Of course, I won't unless I win in the lottery in the next three months. I can't buy the bronze pass (access to the pannels only) because they are only for students and the silver is way too expensive for me. There is also the issue that it'll be in Rio de Janeiro, so I'll have to include airplane tickets in the expenses too. =(

I was going to make a rambleful post on how evil fandom can be, always having someone to cut your squee by calling showmakers, actors, actresses and characters really awful names, but I'll just respond to that by squeeing on how wonderful said showrunners, actors, actresses and characters are. I love my show and you'll never ever be able to ruin the fun because really, what can you say about a show that spoilers for the last ep )

I finally got to see the first episode of Miracle Day thanks to my brother. I managed to see it twice before writing this post and I can say that I really liked it.

Unspoilery parts first.

Miracle Day is dark. It’s darker than Children of Earth, but in a good way. It's a more real kind of Torchwood and it is ideal for a new audience. It has references for the old fans, but it also explains a lot of stuff for the new viewers without getting boring for those that already know how the show works. We've got old faces and new faces to ground each section of the viewership. As an old fan I didn't find it rushed or overly explanatory in any way and was intrigued to find out more, the main goal of a first episode. In a way it feels more like a spinoff than a new season.

The fans that didn't like Children of Earth can give this a try, but don’t think this season will be the same as the ones before. The Welsh roots are still there, but it’s a bigger picture now and a larger scale. The budget certainly looks bigger. There’s more action and, dare I spoil you, more explosions. It’s more of an American show now, but it still has references of the past and the episode certainly had a lot of welshness in it too. It’s an interesting mix and I’m eager to find out how it’ll continue throughout the season.

Of course, we have the new additions to the team. Personally I liked both CIA agents, Rex and Esther, but I’m still unsure about Doctor Juarez. She seems competent enough in the parts she appeared. Old characters are changed from their experiences in the previous season and I can’t talk about that in more detail without going into spoilers, so it continues under the cut.

Spoilers )

Overall, I thought it was an effective first episode, making me curious to figure out other layers of the problem in next episodes and making me realize that I did miss the good ol’ show.

Since my phone keeps eating my posts I decided to try again in the school's computer.

I'm sorry for being so absent and ignoring my f-list! Not much is new except for the fact that now I've got someone to squee about SGA in RL!!! I got him totally and completely addicted to it and he's already finishing season two. I even got him to start writing and make a LJ!!! He needs SGA friends to squee with so, people, be nice and friend him back because he's all alone in the vastness of LJ. *waves at [livejournal.com profile] re_nan*

So, Renan, it's made. Hopefully you'll have plenty of friends now.


I can't even begin expressing how awesome it is to have a RL stargate friend that I converted.

EDIT: He's totally in love with Teyla and only chose one tiny Shep icon because I ordered him to.

New phone!

Doctor Who Series 6 Trailer. Beware Teh!Awesome.

x_erikah_x: (CSI SPN)
I've seen a lot of mixed reviews for this episode, which is kind of expected. I liked it a lot, but it's hard to find an episode of any of my favorite shows that I don't like. I'm pretty easy to please. I'll start with a non-spoilery review.

This episode was more of a parody than a meta. I've seen people taking it far too seriously and hating it because of that. People, it's just an episode. It's a parody, it is NOT reality. So much so that they got actors to play pretty much everyone from behind the scenes rather than have the real guys there. Really, some people need to figure out the difference between what's real and what's fiction and stopping saying s*** like that this ep means the series will be cancelled soon and that things are going bad in the studio.

That said, I found this episode to be very entertaining and funny. I LOL-ed in many parts. It was pretty easy to figure out most parodies and exaggerations. There were some fun references meant exclusively for the fans, including plenty of Misha Collins tweets, some of which that appeared in the actor's own twitter account this morning. Gotta love him.

I loved that they wrapped everything into the arc of the season and I really hope we'll get to see more of this soon. This seems to be a big aspect of it, but we only managed to get a few glimpses so far.

Spoiler review )

I need to watch it again to form more coherent thoughts and remember the parts I left out. Sorry if this doesn't make any sense. I'm too tired and worked too much today.

BTW, I rented Friday The 13th with Jared Padalecki. I never watched any Friday 13th movies before. *wonders what the Winchesters would find of it*

Look what I found. For a while I had forgoten about some fans' attempt to bring a Supernatural convention to Brazil, but it looks like it's going to happen. And it's in May, very close to my birthday. NO WAY I'll have the money to go, but MISHA COLLINS!!!

Guess who has fast broadband again? It's not *the* fastest internet but I can watch youtube vids again!!! The only problem is that we have two computers and one modem. We need money to buy that wi-fi thingie.

About time the phone company accepted our request. We've been trying for well over a year. It's so stupid that you need to sign up for a phone landline in order to have internet. Now we don't need. Why would we want a landline? We don't use it. Cell phones are more than enough.

Off to *find* that new Supernatural episode!
x_erikah_x: (timao)
I know most of you won't be interested in this (specially fellow Brazilians that happen to squee over all of the horrible, nasty rival teams xD), but I can't not share this.

I have seen all of Sherlock. NO FREAKING WORDS!!!

I also found their websites. XD *amused*

How can I bear the wait? How can something get me totally and utterly addicted and obsessed in just three episodes? Actually the utterly addicted and obsessed came with the first ep. THESE GUYS ARE EVIL GENIUSES.

Yes, I'm actually looking forward more for Sherlock than for Doctor Who. Can you believe it? I seriously hope we get a proper full series.

Also, tomorrow is my nephew's third birthday. CAKE!
