☆ Finally! I have a Jet Li icon. The amazing [livejournal.com profile] artvalue did another icon request post and this is one of the ones she made for me \o/

☆ Adam Lambert is continuing to make me make this face --->  ♥__♥ what with going out on the town and looking all pretty and making :DDD faces at his boyfriend.

☆ The J2 photo-shoot video was highly amusing. Could they be any more awkward? Were there hands magnetically attached to their pockets? Were they playing with themselves? Who can tell?

☆ For someone who doesn't play computer games, I have become totally addicted to Sushi Cat. I can't help it. i'm a spinster. And there is a cat. It's like the LAW that I love this.

Ugliest Tattoos is a time-sucking joy. Many of the pics on there show people confusing YOUR and YOU'RE. You'd think if you were going to get a big, blazing chest piece, a two second spell check would be on your agenda perhaps? Some WTF pics:

oh the humanity )

So, thanks to RL stuff, not only am I way behind on fic reading, I'm also late in reccing fics...lol as you can see.

j2 fic recs under here )

I'll add these to the main lists next week.
lexzilla: (Ω j2 rps dorks)
I've been mulling. Not strenuously or anything. More like a nice gentle low-key mull. But still...[Poll #1621563]

And what are your current fandoms? Show me in pictures because it's always nice to get some pretty up in a post! To no ones surprise here are mine ^_^

♥ Check it out! I'm so honoured by this! My fic Come Play With Me has been made into a beautiful pdf by [livejournal.com profile] too_rational. It looks really pretty and includes all the amazing art made by [livejournal.com profile] gwyntastic . If you want, you can find the download link for it here and there are also many other great J2 fics for download here and SPN ones here. It's such a cool resource!

♥ I was having thoughts this morning about why I'm so excited by Adam Lambert. Mainly, it's because I think his voice is an amazing fucking instrument. But it's also because he reminds of a quote from the late great Bill Hicks. It's over a decade old, but still feels just as relevant when I think about all the shit Adam gets for daring to be himself in this day and age.

This is made clear near the end of the Montreal set where Hicks rants about the poor state of contemporary, state-sanctioned pop, the kind of tuneless, harmless pabulum hailed by the authorities as representing 'a good image for children'. "Since when did mediocrity and banality become a good image for your children? I want my children to listen to people who fucking ROCKED! I don't care if they died in puddles of their own vomit! I want someone who plays from his fucking heart! 'Mummy, mummy, the man Bill told me to listen to has a blood bubble coming from his nose!' 'SHUT UP AND LISTEN TO HIM PLAY'." This followed by an astonishing sequence of mimed obscenities; an image summoned up of clean-cut New Kids on the Block fans goose-stepping, giving the Hitler salute and shouting 'Heil! Heil!' then ‘sucking Satan's cock’.      source

Since when did mediocrity and banality become a good image for your children? What do you guys think?

♥ It also led me to think about another criticism that Adam often gets: that he's not authentic. If we really are in that stage of post-postmodernism where 'authenticity' is understood as a return to what is seen as the traditional, then I find it very sad. Not only because it's a tradition that never existed but also because I dislike the implied judgment of authentic being good and inauthentic being the other. It speaks of a conservatism that I am always [naively?] hoping we are moving past.

New movie purchase :) )

Ooops. It seems like my Adam Lambert obsession made me forget I had a list of Jared/Jensen fics to rec, so once again this has gotten a little longer than intended.You've all probably read these by now, but I'm reccing them anyway because the authors are fabulous :D

cunningly hidden under this cut )

I'll add them into the main lists over the weekend.

lexzilla: (Ω j2 face smish)
I cleared out some of the dead links from the AU recs lists. It made me a little sad to see some of the amazing stories we've lost recently :(

So to cheer myself up, I've updated another recs list. This time it's the domestic bliss one, otherwise known as already in a relationship fic recs. I've got to give big thanks to[livejournal.com profile] moorspede for giving me hand when google went evil nuts.

Let me know if there are any problems!

Recs ahoy

So many fics to read. So little time. I haven’t read nearly as many [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang fics as I’ve wanted to. The sum total of Sam/Dean fics that I’ve read has been 3! Lame. That said, I loved each of them (The incestuous courtship of the antichrist's bride, Always You, without time or space and Crush). All very different and all enjoyable in very different ways save for the fact that I think they’re well written. I’ve read more J2 fics because that’s my fandom bag and, man, they’re making me happy. As are all the non big bang fics. In fact, I’m in a happy little fic reading bubble.

Hence the recs now, as my list of stories that I wanted to go YAY about has gotten pretty long.

J2 fic recs [+ 1 J3 & one Jensen/Jeff] )
I’ll add the AU, getting together & illness and injury recs to the updated master-posts. The rest will have to wait until those are in the new improved format too.
lexzilla: (j2 mine at con)
Huh. Seems like I haven't recced any new fic in ages. Which is sad because there's been so much good stuff (that you've probably already read) that this turned into a bit of a monster list. I'll add the AUs and first times into the new main lists over the weekend. The rest will just have to wait until later because my attention span is small and it will be big bang soon :)

And in summary, coding is boring - so let me know if any of these are really really wrong :D
lexzilla: (j2 hearts)
So in my ongoing attempt to make life easier for myself, I've revamped another recs list into an easier format. This time it's:
There's been some amazing new stuff recently & I want to be able to rec those fics without crying at the thought of coding, so this needed doing first.

lexzilla: (j2 twizzler poke)
So because about three people on my flist wanted it, including birthday girl [livejournal.com profile] siubhlach , here are the same J2 AU fic recs - but this time organised by theme rather than alphabetically.

Man, themeing is really hard to do. I've tried to put them in categories based mainly on genre or job if it impacts story, but chances are I got it horribly wrong. If there are any you think really don't fit, let me know :D
lexzilla: (jensen rock on)
So remember how I said all the coding on my rec posts were dying? Well I'm slowly starting to update them all into an easier format so here is the link to the J2 AU recs:

Clicking on a letter in the content will take you to all the fics that start with that letter. I know, what technological wizardry is this?

Would anyone find it useful to have this in a themed version as well? Or is that overkill?

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] moorspede  :D

lexzilla: (dean head down)
*as suggested by [livejournal.com profile] kinkynicky  :D

Man, the holiday season really bought out the Jared and Jensen good times. So many excellent fics. These are some of my favourites from then, plus a few from before. I'll add them to the main lists over the weekend.

Title: Stop Me If You Think That You’ve Heard This One Before
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 2070
Beta: The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] ulysses3_de
Disclaimer: All lies
Summary: AU. Let me tell you a tale about a boy who liked another boy.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] jeyhawk for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas . I’m not sure it’s recognisable as any of your prompts, but they did inspire this. Honestly. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] moorspede and [livejournal.com profile] siubhlach for their handholding.

J2 Recs

Nov. 28th, 2008 05:08 pm
lexzilla: (j2 gaze of love)
This set of recs took a little longer than intended and ended up being pretty long, but I'm not going to complain that there are so many great J2 fic writers out there :D

Some are new. Some are old. I'll add them in to the main lists over the weekend.

Under here )

Happy weekend!
lexzilla: (j2 sex now)
So, I had promised to write porn for [livejournal.com profile] siubhlach . That didn't happen. Instead, I read lots of porn. Go me.

But that means I now get to rec my favourites to you. I've labelled the list porn fics but what I really mean is stories where sex is the focus of or reason for the fic but that they can still sometimes be more than that. Only that didn't sound so catchy as a title.

Because of my preferences, these lean more towards bottom Jensen fics - but any fics totally in that direction can be found in the toppy Jared / bottom Jensen rec list - the toppy Jensen fics have been described as such.

porn fic recs )

Also, happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] ala_tariel :D
lexzilla: (dean raises hell)
Man, it feels like ages since I last did a recs post. Probably because I spent way too much time reading all the good fic from big bang. So here are some fics you've all probably already read plus a couple of older ones. As per usual, I'll add them to the main posts. 

I had to split the au list into three because there so many good fics. Still, what a pain when lj hates me. Does anyone know how to change an lj cut without messing everything up?

There are trillion more fics from there that I want to rec, but that will have to wait for the next time as I do believe I've reached my typing limit. 

Happy Tuesday :D
