This just makes me think of Colin and Bradley. 

And now a rant, because I'm feeling ranty. 

Why is it such a big deal that I don't like 'The Classics'? The only two I've read that I've actually enjoyed have been 1984 and Frankenstein. I don't seek them out on my own because they don't interest me. Most of them don't even have plot. 

I've always had very specific tastes when it comes to books and that hasn't changed. Those tastes have. I read a lot more sci-fi and gay literature now. But even then I hate Tolkein. His books kind of hit you over the head with the Christianity as do most other fantasy novels from that time period. I know, I was forced to read them. Not to mention his writing makes me want to bash my head into a wall.

It's not sad that I don't like these books. It's doesn't make me any less smart or educated. It just means I have different tastes and interests then most other people. I don't love literature. I love history and there my interests have pretty much reached Molly Houses. How much more specific can you get? 

There are so many things I want to read. You should see my rec lists. I don't want to waste my time suffering through books I won't like and have no interest in. I was forced to read them in high school and college and I'm not going to do it to myself now. I'm not that much of a masochist.

Please tell me I'm not alone in this.
So I didn't really explain the whole backstory behind that rant the other day, but if you read my tweets from that day you can probably figure it out.

One of my best friends from high school who I don't see or talk to much anymore, mostly because she lives with her boyfriend and isn't around much, is going to see the movie tonight at midnight (shock! horror!). She told me. I said I should disown her. Discussion via twitter ensued. Basically I got pissed off and needed to rant.

So said friend just IMed me to tell me that she wishes I was going with her and her boyfriend to the movie tonight. I said I'd rather shove a spoon in my eye and I sent her my rant. Basically she didn't get it and I was trying very hard not to insult her and tell her that the reason why she didn't get it is the same reason she thinks everything with Twilight is okay. Very hard to do. Especially since I'm supposed to see her this weekend.

She thinks she started a fight, which she didn't. She wanted to know why I'm so passionate about my hatred, another reason why she obviously didn't get the point.

I told her it was having a negative influence on my life. She said just ignore it. I said I'd like to see you try cause it's FUCKING EVERYWHERE.

Apparently we need to talk more because last she knew everything was fine with me and Twilight. When I first read the books I didn't like them very much, but hoped that once I got through the first one they would get better. Well that didn't happen. But since then things have exploded and I've read more and more about how truly awful not only the books are but their influence.

Science fiction and fantasy are really important to me. I watch a lot of it, I read a lot of it and it's influenced a lot of the way that I look at life. Twilight and Stephenie Meyer's writing are a disgrace to the genre and will never stop offending me as a fan of that genre.

AND FOR THE LAST FUCKING TIME. I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO JUDGE AN AUTHOR OR A PERSON FOR THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. PEOPLE DO IT TO ME BECAUSE I HAVE NONE AND I'LL DO IT TO THEM RIGHT BACK. I WON'T SUPPORT ANYONE WHO IS PART OF SOMETHING THAT HAS BELIEFS THAT I DON'T AGREE WITH. AND IN AMERICA THAT'S A LOT OF FUCKING PEOPLE.

And if you don't believe that read this: If I find out an author is a Republican or doesn't believe in evolution or is even a Red Sox fan I won't read them. And I have every right to do that, believe that and say that. THE FUCKING END.

I really need go watch some boys make out to make myself feel better. I hope this is the last time I have to talk about this for awhile. It's exhausting and really fucking annoying. Especially because I have no cigarettes to calm me down.
FUCK YOU TWILIGHT AND THE FUCKING IMPACT YOU HAVE ON MY LIFE.

I HAVE EVERY FUCKING RIGHT TO JUDGE STEPHENIE MEYER FOR BIENG A MORMAN AND INFLICTING HER FANATICAL BELIEFS ON CHILDREN.

I HAVE EVERY FUCKING RIGHT TO NOT AGREE WITH RELIGIOUS FANATICS AND TO NOT READ THEIR BOOKS BECAUSE OF THAT. THE TWO GO HAND IN HAND. ORSON SCOTT CARD WAS A HOMOPHOBE AND HE WROTE HOMOPHOBIC LITERATURE. OBVIOUSLY I'M NOT GOING TO SUPPORT THAT.

I WILL NOT SUPPORT ANTI-GAY ORGANIZATIONS OR PEOPLE, REGARDLESS OF HOW BIG A GLOBAL PHENOMENON THEY ARE.

NOT TO MENTION THE ABSTINENCE ONLY STANCE THOSE BOOKS TAKE AND HOW DEGRADING THEY ARE TO WOMEN AND FEMALE CHARACTERS IN GENERAL. THERE IS A REASON THAT THE ISSUE OF STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS IN SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY IS SUCH A BIG DEAL AND YOU ARE NOT FUCKING HELPING MATTERS STEPHENIE MEYER.

I DON'T WANT TO READ ABOUT A TEENAGE GIRL WHO MOANS AND PINES AND CAN'T FUCKING GET SOME. I WAS THAT FUCKING GIRL AND I DON'T WANT TO RELIVE IT. IF I WANT TO ACT LIKE A 16 YEAR OLD GIRL I'LL LOOK AT STARK SANDS. AT LEAST THAT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD INSIDE.

THE POINT IS THE WOMAN CANNOT WRITE AND IT SHOULD FUCKING END THERE. I'VE READ FANFICTION WRITTEN BY 12 YEAR OLDS THAT WAS BETTER THAN THAT DRIVEL. PLUS I'D LIKE HER TO ACT LIKE A FUCKING ADULT. 40 YEAR OLD WOMEN SHOULD NOT GET UPSET AND REFUSE TO PUBLISH SOMETHING BECAUSE IT LEAKED ONLINE, EVERYONE SAID IT WAS TERRIBLE AND MADE HER GO CRY IN A CORNER. IF YOU WERE ACTUALLY FUCKING SMART YOU WOULD TAKE THIS AS A SIGN AND GO BACK TO THE HOLE YOU CAME OUT OF.

I ALSO REALLY HATE FUCKING VAMPIRES. I HATE THAT SOCIETY THINKS WOMEN LIKE THEM BECAUSE THEY WANT TO SLEEP WITH GAY MEN. HOW THE FUCK DOES THAT EVEN MAKE SENSE? I DON'T WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH GAY MEN I WANT TO SEE THEM HAVE SEX WITH EACH OTHER. THERE'S A FUCKING DIFFERENCE.

AND JUST FUCKING BECAUSE....ADAM LAMBERT: GO FUCKING DIE. I'M SO SICK OF YOU AND YOUR MICHAEL JACKSON FACE THAT MAKES ME WANT TO SCREAM IN TERROR. AND YOU SUPPORT THIS CRAP.


AND TODAY STARTED OUT SO WELL...

A rant...

Jul. 26th, 2009 02:43 pm
I'm well aware that I'm the black sheep of my family. I'm okay with it. I just wish my family would realize that fact and let me be. Just because I'm the oldest cousin by 10 years does NOT mean that I have to be an example. Frankly the world could use a little more blunt honesty and so could this family. I'm sick of being the only one who sees that and then gets yelled at for doing something about it. 

I think the fact that I don't go off on my step-father when he makes his daily homophobic comment would be enough. 

Also I hate my grandmother. She needs to get off her pedestal and realize we're not the people she wants us to be and we're never going to be. I don't believe in your religious fiction, I swear, I drink, I party, I'm honest, I'm blunt, I'm sarcastic and I say what I'm thinking and that's never going to change. Your husband understood that, why can't you? 

If you want me to be an example to your kids, how about this lesson? Don't change who you are because other people have a problem with it. This world is filled with way too many people who play into societies wishes and you don't have to be one of them. This world is never going to change if no one challenges the status quo. Talk about politics and the state of the world and realize how fucked up it is. Don't be simple, don't be complacent and don't let others get away with bigoted remarks. Don't censor yourself and don't let yourself be lulled into a false sense of reality. One day you'll be in the real world where everything isn't apple pie. Realize it now and educate yourself. Question what you're told. Don't censor yourself and don't encourage it in other places. Talk to people, argue with them, open their minds and have them open yours. 

People may not like you for it, but it's usually because they see something in you that they want to be and are too afraid to do anything about or they're just afraid you might burst the little bubble they've built. 

Went to go see HBP at midnight last night with my friend Shaina. I should have done this when I got home, but it was already 3:30 when I got home and into bed. 

Possibly spoilerly thoughts... )

I'll leave you with my current favorite picture of Rupert.







Anger!

I will never understand why people who belong to sharing communities don't check the tags. 9 out of 10 times what they're looking for is already there. Probably spelled wrong, but there nonetheless.

Okay I LOVE Harry Potter. 

I love Rupert Grint.

I can't wait for Half-Blood Prince.

If only to see Rupert in Quidditch gear.

But really, the movies are terrible. 

Dan and Emma make me cry with some of their acting choices sometimes. And NOT in a good way. I'm watching Prisoner of Azkaban right now on ABC Family and every time I see it I try to figure out whose idea it was to make Lupin so OOC. It's actually painful to watch some of those scenes. I think David Thewlis could have done an amazing job if they just gave him better material. 

Gripe over. Maybe I'll watch Order. It's been awhile and it doesn't make me scream. Much.

WHY....??

I wish I would stop getting followed by people/bots on Twitter who only Tweet Indian recipes. I don't eat Indian food. I don't like Indian food. And if you don't believe me just ask my gallbladder.

Just STOP!
As someone who lives and has gone to school in two states where gay marriage was legalized in the last year, this crap in California has reached a level of ridiculousness that I just can't stand. 

The world has not ended, pigs have not started to fly and if hell existed it has not frozen over. In the immortal words of the Stonewall project: Gay people exist, get the FUCK over it. Move on and deal with your own failing relationships and marriages and stop worrying about everyone else's. 

THE END.
Why are there people on LJ who don't believe in using spaces after commas? I don't get it and it makes my eyes go all wonky.

UGH!!!

Everyone in my life is seriously way out of control. Which is making me even more out of control.

My day included getting in a huge fight with my mom on the phone that resulted in me hanging up on her.

And just now getting into a huge fight with one of my 'friends' about how ridiculous he's been all year and me eventually kicking him out of my apartment. But apparently I have no right to voice my opinion to him even when it concerns me. Whatever.

Someone please get me out of the state of Vermont right now! 
Why do some fic writers refuse to use contractions when writing dialogue. People don't actually speak like that. Why do people have to write characters that way? Drives me absolutely crazy. 

Ugh...

I'm sitting in my friend's dorm room while her and our other friend discuss and write poetry. I LOATHE poetry. I want to read slashy porn.

I also need a fucking drink. Why are all the liquor stores closed? ;(

UGH

Somebody please give me something to read about Molly Houses before I lose it. 

Teh gay has officially taken over every aspect of my life...as if it already hadn't before.
