Writer's Block: The name game

What's the origin of your username? If you could change it to anything else, would you, and what would it be?


It's pretty obvious - it comes from Hunger Games, a young adult book series by Suzanne Collins. I love those books, but I'd change my username in a heartbeat because it doesn't represent who I am. I suppose it doesn't really matter, does it? A username is a username; it's not a creed or a mantra and it shouldn't be taken too seriously, but it'd be nice to have a creative, fun, ingenious username. Too bad I'm not any of those things and could only come up with hungrygames haha.

Writer's Block: Best song of the year

What is the best song of 2010?


First of all, if anyone says any song by or even distantly related to Taylor Swift, I'm gonna gag. I'm usually fairly open to the fact that everyone has their own taste yada yada, but this is getting ridiculous; that girl is mediocre at best, yet she continues to top the charts and I'm genuinely baffled by it. BAFFLED! Every single song she releases sounds like the last 10 she released because she's constantly regurgitating her own material.

That said, a band who actually has talent and who released an amazing song in 2010 is Muse with The Uprising. I saw them in concert this year and IT. WAS. AMAZING.

COOKIES

I just wanted to say thank you to Livejournal for letting us lowly unpaid members give out free Christmas cookie v-gifts! Too bad I only have one friend... I'm sure I can find four other random people to share the spoils with ;)

Here's another free Cookie.... (yeah, I did that!)

Photobucket

Well, I guess he's not free, but the picture is. ENJOY!

P.S. I have a new Ian icon! Hot, right?

This really is the last time...

Okay, so I'm not done complaining, but I swear this is the last time!

WHY THE HELL IS THE ENTIRE CAST OF VAMPIRE DIARIES GORGEOUS? Okay, I get that the main characters should be, and I THANK GOD every week that Ian Somerhalder got the role of Damon, but COME ON! There's not a single average-looking person in the whole bunch. Even the tiny roles, like that assistant that was only in the show for 5 minutes in one episode, was beautiful. It's getting a bit ridiculous and more than a little annoying. At least TRY to make it a bit like real life. Even Twilight cast Rob Pattinson, who couldn't be considered beautiful in even the best lighting and with the best makeup artist money can buy.

I just have SO MANY opinions that are just begging to be shared! They will not be ignored, so there ya go. No harm done, right?

Yeah, no

So lately I've been a total 'Negative Nancy', but that's just the hormones talking. Since the hormones are STILL talking, let me tell you how annoyed I am about Glee right now...

1. Karofsky threatening Kurt with his life. They could've REALLY done something awesome with the storyline between those two. Kurt could've helped Karofsky to accept himself, even if he never actually comes out to anyone. Now the writers of Glee have made it so that's impossible and Karofsky will forever be the asshole bully who continues to bully and nothing is learned from it. Honestly, I don't know where the writers plan to go from here? It's too easy! Kurt now loves Blaine and Blaine will love Kurt? Well now, isn't that just nice and pretty and convenient! UGH!

2. The new girl in the group is totally annoying! Now I'm questioning if they made her that way because she's fat. When you think about it, there's only one other girl on Glee that could even be considered overweight and that's Mercedes, who has so much panache that she could be any size and everyone would love her This new girl is ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT FOOD, 'cause of course every fat girl has food constantly on the brain. EPIC FREAKIN' FAIL, GLEE! It pisses me off because I'm overweight and have been trying to lose weight since I was in 7th grade! I count calories and weigh everything! I'm only eating 1200 calories a day and I'M STILL FAT. This just perpetuates society's stigma of people who are overweight and I can't begin to express how disappointed I am in the producers of Glee for letting it happen.

Well, I think I'll just leave it at that for today. I still love Glee, but I can't say I'll love it for much longer if they continue in the way they're going.
