You know what today is? October 3rd. Are you doing anything special to mark the one five year anniversary of Lilly Kane’s murder?

When you see this on your flist, quote Veronica Mars.

Lamb: Hey, what do you say we do your Miranda Rights in harmony this time? I'll take lead. You take tenor?
Logan: Is it still called déjà vu when something happens more than twice, or is that something different? I'll have to look that up.

p.s. i had a hell of a time picking just one quote. imagine the friendship bracelet, the lives ruined/bloodshed, the "if it's that big i'll be your prom date", the "veronica mars is smarter than me" quote and many, many more. seriously. this show is too quotable!
tiggz: (veronica/lilly - memories)
have not scrolled the flist in a few hours. it will have to wait until the morning.

i just wanted to say that even after my tumultuous relationship with Veronica Mars this past season, that was two fantastic episodes and probably the first time i've ever truly been satisfied with a season finale that this show has done. well done, show. well done.

it really hit me when RT's name came up after the episode. there will be no more new Veronica Mars ever again. i honestly can't believe how much it's affecting me. damn you, CW! damn you RT for not making this season as good as those two final episodes! damn fandom for turning on each other!

gah. i need to go to bed.
tiggz: (veronica - tv gods)
tv the past couple of nights has been awesome. Heroes has me in such a state of fangirlyness and i can't even vocalize how much i loved it.

AI was pretty fantastic tonight with all Bon Jovi, all the time! Blake just kills me. there were a few weeks there when i was sort of tapping my fingers waiting to see him be Blake, but he brought it tonight and i am the 50% of the audience that Simon said would LOVE it.

for those who are interested, tonight's song. (originally ripped/uploaded by the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] expatiates.)

i also have to say that i really, really liked tonight's VM. i'm not certain it's on an upward trend, but i definitely felt better about this episode than i have for quite a bit of the season. we'll see how the last eps go. i have semi-spoiled myself, but i've come to realize that reading about something and seeing it happen on my screen are entirely different things. so i'm hanging in there until the bitter end.
tiggz: (veronica/lilly - memories)
i just watched the first four eps of season one of VM. guys, this show was SO GOOD. it really made me realize how much i missed loving these characters and their relationships with each other. the drama. the comedy. the music. the lighting. the hairstyles. the clothes. THE KISS!! just...everything. i miss it. SO MUCH.

i might end up doing a complete rewatch because i really do need to remind myself why i fell in love with this show.

i also hunted around youtube and my hard drive for fanvids/faux trailers that will always be near and dear to my heart. youtube only really turned up a few faux trailers that [livejournal.com profile] naty_ and [livejournal.com profile] zimshan made. so i thought i'd upload the others to my webspace and share them in case any of you missed them or just wanted to revel in the nostalgia with me.

[livejournal.com profile] naty_'s

Feeling Good by Astarte (every time this song comes on my ipod, i think of this vid.)

It's A Shame by [livejournal.com profile] whereistheluv

A Better Son/Daughter* by [livejournal.com profile] naty_ (ahh...the vid that brought Rilo Kiley to my musical attention. one of my favorite fanvids ever.)

and finally, the vid that holds the title of my absolute favorite, Colorblind once again by [livejournal.com profile] whereistheluv.

*you'll probably need VLC to watch this one.
tiggz: (jackie - hi!)
am i nuts? or is this tessa thompson in this ad that just popped up on my yahoo mail?

you can tell me i'm nuts. )

i have "things" to post about, but i have to go to bed. i'm exhausted and extremely glad that tomorrow is friday.
tiggz: (veronica - shhhh!!!)
not cutting because i'm not spoiling anything.

that? was fucking awesome!!! i was on the edge of my seat for at least the last half hour. RT? keep doing that. keep doing that and there might be some adoration from this corner of the internet for a while.

i love Logan Echolls and i don't care who knows it. (totally a Team Logan girl. no question.)
tiggz: (vinnie van lowe - geek!)
i gotta be honest. i kinda loved tonight's VM. probably the first ep all season that i can say that about.

a bit more in depth under here. )

this is the first ep that has actually inspired me to post and debate a bit at a posting board i go to. feels kinda nice...
tiggz: (veronica - tv gods)
have you guys heard this? JDope wants a KBell action figure. his interviews never fail to make me laugh and cringe all at the same time. i think he's missing a key filter that most of us humans have. (maybe it's that scientology thing.)

also? this has me more excited for the show than i've been in a long time. (warning, spoilerphobes! that link takes you to a promo for next week's episode! click at your own risk!!) pleasedon'tscrewthisupRTpleasepleaseplease!!!

peeeeeeee.esssssssss. Veronica totally stole my hair and dyed it blonde.

in conclusion, *SQUEEEEEEEE*!!!!
tiggz: (veronica's world)
i was surfing around on imdb and i came across something about VM and i have a question for those spoilerwhores on my flist. DO NOT CLICK UNLESS YOU ARE OK WITH KNOWING CASTING SPOILERS!! )
tiggz: (veronica - start watching VM.  or else..)
the best show on tv

please? find your local CW affiliate here. prior character knowledge isn't so much necessary, but if you want a brief catch-up, go here.

please watch tonight. please!!!
tiggz: (veronica - a pony?!)
i said earlier today that i hoped the VM premiere wouldn't pop up online today because it's already such a busy tv night. then i come online and see everyone and their brother talking about it and know that all other tv shows don't compare and i'm totally going to watch it.


now to go read everyone else's thoughts!
tiggz: (veronica - tv gods)
VM people, we have lift-off! i guess i don't have to wonder about this anymore. 3x01 cold open or as the CW calls it "director's cut". spoilerphobes, it gives away a new character and the mystery of the week. so...your call.

also, i have been semi-spoiled for The Office by a hi-res picture. i won't say any more than that for fear of spoiling others.

i had other things to post about, but i don't really feel like it now. i need to get caught up on my TiFaux before the new season really kicks into high gear.
tiggz: (logan - STFU)
KB? STFU, please! the following is a reply i just made in this post at [livejournal.com profile] veronica_mars.

i personally don't see it as duncan hate. i see it as Kristen is talking to every reporter as if she's an authority on the show when the truth is she admitted she doesn't even watch it. she only has a grasp of the scenes she films and those are so random and out of order, i'm not surprised she doesn't have a grasp on what happened in seasons one and two.

in my opinion logan is better than duncan. sure, he was an ass to her in season one after she chose her father over her friends. however, he also changed his opinion after she helped him find the truth out about his mother. then the kiss. then the private relationship. then everyone finds out and he tells his friends if they have a problem with her, they're dead to him. season two he was an ass because the girl had broken his heart. i've met plenty of guys like that.

duncan on the other hand broke up with her without telling her why. proceeded to pretend as if she didn't exist until he saw troy and logan show interest in her. he slept with her while he still believed her to be his sister and made her think she'd been raped for over a year. we won't even discuss how he let logan and everyone else treat her during that year. his specialty, after all, is standing idly by.

yeah...duncan's a stellar example of the perfect boyfriend. *dreamy sigh* </sarcasm>

i actually didn't have a problem with duncan until RT decided to retcon all the crap he did in season one and force him down our throats as v's twu wuv. i thought he had a lot of potential. they threw that away with 2x01 though.

why is this so hard to understand? seriously. fandom is fucking nuts.
tiggz: (veronica - hmmm)
so i'm sure everyone and their brother has now seen the "ghetto" preview, but it got me thinking. will we have cold opens this year? i love the cold opens. i want the cold opens. it's the only spoilers i allow myself besides casting spoilers.

UPN is the only site i know of that did that. i wonder who's in charge of the CW one...
tiggz: (veronica - bored now)
oh, fandom. where has the snark gone? seriously. [livejournal.com profile] vm_anonymous isn't even entertaining in a trainwreck kind of way. it's just...boring. it always devolves into slamming fanfic writers? bo-ring. i'll eat my hat if the next one of these things that crops up doesn't mention them. can we find something else to bitch about, please? at least [livejournal.com profile] vm_truthiness has been original with the things he/she/it is posting.

in unrelated news, i talked to a customer a little while ago whose name was Charles Brown. i said, "you probably hear a lot of Charlie Brown jokes, huh?" and he said he'd heard them all. heh. i was tempted to speak like one of the adults from the cartoon, but i restrained myself.
tiggz: (vinnie van lowe - geek!)
i might need a youtube intervention. seriously. i've been surfing it since i got home tonight around 8:30. it's just so damn addictive. watch one clip, click, watch another, click, watch another, click...

people who saved old tv shows and uploaded them are my best friends forever. especially the good ol' days of GH. last weekend i cried my eyes out watching old Robin/Stone videos. this week it's been Sonny/Brenda and Liz/Lucky(Jonathan Jackson Lucky only, please!). i need Guza to stop his character assasination of Lucky. watching all of those clips reminded me what an awesome character he was before they decided to bring him back recast. *sigh* it should be a crime to recast. it's very rare for me to ever like any of them as much as the original.

unrelated, but has anyone else seen Ryan Hansen in a Jack in the Box commercial? he's playing video games. it can't have been that long ago either because he looks like Dick.
tiggz: (veronica - bored now)
i'm bored and actually have time on my hands at work. so i bring you...

my lj pet peeves
- people who make introductory posts in communities. nobody really cares that you just joined.

- people who say "i'm not sure if this is allowed, but..." and post whatever it is they're going to post without reading the rules to see if it is allowed.

- people who let fandom drama/crazies drive them away from their journals/communities.

- people who make dramatic flounces saying they're taking an lj(or really this applies to posting boards too) "hiatus/sabbatical/vacation/whatever".

- people who repeatedly delete and undelete their journals.

i'm sure there are more, but those are the only ones that come to me right now. i'm hearing rumblings of a VM kerfluffle, but i guess it's only at TWoP and i don't go there. it's been a while since i stretched my snarky fingers and got involved in a flame war. maybe i should go post something inflammatory at beta. like..."moo". *snerk*
tiggz: (veronica - *fingers*)
i'm not going to mention how much i love the VM fandom because really, it goes without saying. you guys are made of so much awesome it's not even funny.

the real reason i'm posting is to give those interested the setlist from the Common Ro show on friday night. i also have a couple of goodies that i'll put at the end of the post. i've been trying to wait on the guys to upload a song from that night to their myspace account, but they're slacking. (touring is hard. yeah...whatever. *g*)

5/26/06 - Nashville Common Ro setlist
Satan, No
How To Lose
(i freaking love this one. [livejournal.com profile] foxant10, this is the song i told you about on the phone.)
Down in Front
(i'm not sure about this one. the handwriting is iffy.)
Let 'Er Go

i really don't think they played all of these, but since they were all new songs, i have no idea which ones were played and which ones weren't. this album definitely sounds like it's going to be more folk-y than The Big Fear. i liked everything i heard though.

goodies are back here... )
tiggz: (veronica - start watching VM.  or else..)
here's the deal, people. i've been pimping the hell out of this show for 2 years. we've just been renewed for another season. we're moving to a merged network that will hopefully be in more markets. more markets better equal better ratings. (pleasepleaseplease)

i know i've always said this is a show that must be watched from the beginning. i'm willing to acquiesce that this isn't necessarily the case. it has definitely been my experience, but i'm willing to accept that not everyone is as fanatical about television as i or my other converts are. so. with that being said, UPN will be re-airing the second season premiere at 9/8 CST tonight. if you want a brief(extremely brief) rundown of what happened in season one, check out [livejournal.com profile] cindywrites' post here.

give the show a try. it's only an hour and really, what do you have to lose? think of all the squeeing you could participate in. ;)
tiggz: (veronica - a pony?!)

there isn't enough squee in the world!!!

i think it's official that all of my shows will be back next season. wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!

someday soon this journal will go back to being a mixture of fandom and real life. i promise.
tiggz: (vinnie van lowe - geek!)
spoilers for Grey's Anatomy )
tiggz: (veronica's world)
i'm finally rewatching Not Pictured. i had to watch the first five episodes from this season of The Office before i could jump in.

so here goes. i'm sure most of my flist has seen the ep by now, but do not click if you haven't seen the season two finale! )

for those avoiding negative posts about the ep, this isn't one of them. i loved it. very much so.
tiggz: (veronica - *fingers*)
i have yet to get around to rewatching the VM finale. it's possible that i haven't done it because i know how emotionally draining it's going to be. instead i keep watching this video over and over and laughing my ass off thanks [livejournal.com profile] bdbdb.

not much else going on. sad that my tv season is coming to a close. all of my OMGFANDOM!s have already come to a close. the shows that are left are ones that i enjoy, but could mostly live without. except HIMYM because i love Ted.

now. what do i watch? VM season finale, The Office finale, Big Love episode 9 or Kristen Bell's episodes of Deadwood? hmmm...

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] denisef!!!! *smooooooooooooch*

i hope it was fantabulous.
tiggz: (jim - ?!)
spoilers for the Office )

i have yet to post my thoughts about the VM finale. i've posted random comments in people's journals, but i think i'm still too emotional to put it all down. i plan on doing a re-watch tomorrow night. maybe i'll be able to write down my thoughts after that.
tiggz: (logan - STFU)
that was the finale, huh? OMGOMGOMG!!! so many thoughts, so little concentration. my reaction post will have to wait until tomorrow. or something.

going to bed now. i hope the comm queue doesn't explode overnight.
tiggz: (veronica - train wreck)
i'm having a severe urge to run straight home and have a season one VM marathon. specifically? memorable Logan/Veronica scenes. [livejournal.com profile] zimshan just made a post about the Logan/Veronica dynamic that just about did me in. we have a lot of the same hot buttons. Weapons of Class Destruction and Plan B not withstanding. some classic L/V would do me good right about now.

there's also some discussion in [livejournal.com profile] cindywrites lj about whether or not we've put off some potential viewers by saying this is a show that needs to be watched from the beginning. i definitely think it's possible, but i also don't think there's any way around it. it's a character-driven show. if you don't know the history between the characters you're missing a lot of what makes this show brilliant. i definitely think newbies can find merit in the drama and humour that the episodes bring, but the casual viewer misses so much. agree? disagree?

damn. lunch is over. better get to it. only two hours to go. feel free to spam me with your opinions about the merits of watching from the beginning, pics of your favorite scenes, favorite quotes, WHATEVER!
tiggz: (veronica - *wave*)
haven't posted in a few days. no reason really. just don't have much to say. still don't. the most exciting thing i have to report is that my Dr Who torrent only took 3 hours to finish. it's going to have to wait until later though. right now i'm off to wal-mart to return something and grab some ravioli for dinner. then i'm heading to the sister's place to finally get around to watching Jarhead.

Format fans, if you haven't already, sign up to be on their mailing list so you can listen to clips of the new songs and vote for what should be their first single. theformat.com.

and finally, hi and welcome to the new people i have on my flist thanks to the most recent VM friending meme.
tiggz: (veronica - shhhh!!!)
if AI impaired my hearing...spoilers for tonight's VM )
tiggz: (veronica - start watching VM.  or else..)
people who haven't succumbed to my pimping of Veronica Mars for one reason or another, you can buy the season one dvds at Target for $22.99(for a limited time, i'm sure). that's incredibly cheap and completely worth every penny. so go on. go buy! fall in love and thank me later. ;) (seriously, i've converted 20+ people. we can't all be wrong, can we?)

while i'm here...

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] fourleafclover!!!

tiggz: (veronica - smarter)
i would post my reactions to VM, but i'm fairly certain my brain is 'splodey. also, let's face it. my theories never seem to pan out. so i'm just going to stop trying to figure out where RT is going with all of this and leave it to Veronica(who is oh so much smarter than me) and everyone else who likes to speculate. things are better this way. believe me.

i will say that the episode continued with the upward trend of the last half of the season. oh and )

in conclusion, i love this show. these last three eps better not be the last three eps i ever see.
