Winter, What Winter?, Telly-Watching, & the Latest from Cracky Sparkly Obsession Land

*pokes in head, does perfunctory cleaning, feeds the starved dustbunnies*

I biked to town today! I thought it might just about kill me, but actually it was really fun, and I did not even crumble before the Hill of Hell (living in a town that's all built on hills is very pretty until you have to manouevre them on a bike). We'll see if my thighs will turn to knotted wood overnight, but I was pleasantly surprised.

This winter has been insanely mild. Like... it's laughable to even call it winter. We don't get snow, but last year it was pretty cold and we had that killer storm that sent like 500 trees flying through the air and smashing into things. This year has mostly been sunny and slightly cool, lol. It's hardly ever rained. It hasn't stormed. The temperature's rarely even dropped to zero. And now it's not even mid-August but it's been so warm and spring-like that I was hot in my long-sleeved shirt (no jacket) today. Crazyskates! Not that I'm complaining. Grandma asks if we don't miss the snow everytime we talk, and I can still respond with an emphatic "NO!", lol.

Otherwise, not much new is going on. I'm still busy bending the time/space continuum, getting by on 10 hours of sleep a week, and being a busy little bee on EKP and the awesomesauce that is AWZ lately. The lovely [info]alsha and I are watching One Tree Hill, which I am notable unimpressed with so far, and she's recently got me hooked on Sugar Rush, which is just all sorts of adorable and hilarious, with just the right amount of snark. Plus, lots of lovely girlslash! What's not to love?

Being so wrapped up in my cracky German soap and watching lots of British shows lately has really kind of put me off mainstream American shows, I think, lol. We started watching One Tree Hill because we both quite like cheesy teenage shows to veg with (witness my terrible cheerful love for Dawson's Creek) but ugh... everything so far has been so ham-fisted and anvil-dropping and eyerollingly moralising and glossy and wooden. Pls to be giving me some characters that are actual people instead of walking stereotypes. And some good writing would help, too.

Anyway, life's pretty good. Could do with less job and more money, a clone or seven, and more hours in my day, as usual, but in general, can't complain.

Bunch of fandom stuff behind cut to spare the non-obsessed )

And now... I have ice cream, gummis and, uhm, work. Rats. Why must one work, why, why? I wish to spend all my time doing shiny things! *pouty*

As ever, I do read the f-list even if I don't post much lately. Love you all! Hope you're having great weekends! *smooches*

This is what I thought all soaps were like...

Goodness. [info]sdk and I were up late last night/this morning/whatever time it was, and feeling gloomy from subbing crappy DeVa episodes for days with hardly a glimpse of light on the horizon (at least until Ingo and Annette showed up), so we were looking for a pick-me-up and decided to give Verbotene Liebe's Tom/Ulli storyline a go. It's an older one (from 10 years ago, I think) and I thought it'd be interesting to see how gay storylines were handled back then. Now of course this is completely subjective, so no offense to anyone who enjoyed that particular storyline, but:

OMG, how bad. LOL. It's not even the repetitiveness of the plot, because I was vaguely aware of that before then, but...

1.) The characters. Uhm. I usually slash everything remotely slashable, but those two? Not a shred of gay. Not a shred of chemistry. Most awkward physicality ever. Dude.

2.) The dialogue. Completely wooden and expositioning wildly all over the place. Also wildly at odds with the acting, because if someone constantly talks about being in love with someone but does it with plasticky expressions and a stiff tone of mild boredom, funnily enough I don't buy the emotion. That was all over the place... so much telling-not-showing going on that it was laughable.

3.) The writing/plot: Probably not as bad as it feels to me right now but so wrapped up in the utter lack of connection between the characters that there's no salvation. Although it was funny to see how similar Ollian was to Tulli. LOL.

So, in short, it was really entertaining, but more in the sense of "howling with laughter at how bad it was". What it did do was give me a renewed sense of respect for how good the falling in love/coming out part of the Ollian story was, and you know what else... by the time we stopped watching these, my current disillusionment with AWZ was completely mended. Completely. I love my show! It's got actual connection between characters! Believable relationships! Snark! Snappy dialogue! Occasionally good pacing! Okay, it's making me want to rip off my scalp off with DeVa right now, but at least it's making me feel something, you know? At least I'm not sitting there giggling amusedly at the characters' supposed deep angst and turmoil.
