So, in a fit of unaccustomed culinary genius, I came up with this recipe a while back. Various folks in various places have tried it out, found it good, and indicated that something with a bit more specificity wouldn't go amiss.

Precision is the enemy of this soup. It works best if you wing it and stop whenever it looks/smells/feels/tastes about right. Nevertheless, for those interested—and, more than anything else my own reference—I have chronicled a batch using actual measurements and things, toted up the calories involved, and measured the total volume of the result. This version has less profanity and more information. I wouldn't say it's the better for it. But, hey, pictures of food.

The obligatory this-is-what-you'll-need-to-make-this-dish shot:

OUR FANDOM IS BOUNTIFUL AND GOOD, Y'ALL, OUR FANDOM IS BOUNTIFUL AND GOOD

Dec. 23rd, 2011

Well, I tried the "switch to Georgia and enter this CSS" fixit, which is lovely and awesome and makes the comments page SO MUCH BETTER OMG. But it has one major drawback that I can't stomach, viz., that it doesn't display tags on the recent entries page. So, back to a craptacular comments page until I can be arsed to learn enough code to have both. The comments page for this style is quite tolerable, anyway; I kept meaning to disable the custom comments page for this journal but I don't think I ever did, and it was fairly OK. The functionality's good, at least.

It's not even like there aren't positives to the new changes. Just that the negatives outweigh them. C'mon, guys, reverse the dickery and let's all get on with life.

'Sup, SUP?

Y'all. 'Sup?

I know I haven't exactly been around much lately (understatement), but for the record, when I eventually get back in the loop, I'm going to try to do it a bit more from Dreamwidth. Where I am [personal profile] elliptic_eye. And my comments can have subject headers if I need them to.

Or even just if I want them to!

* I don't really think of her as a villain, but I suspect she's more or less meant as one. And she does fulfill the primary function of a villain: giving a really badass speech.

Instarec: start the chase, Garcia/Seaver - R

Reading the CM kinkmeme is absolutely, positively not what I should be doing right now. But too damned bad. And lucky you, for you get a rec out of it.

Reaction/meta: SPN 06x19

random vid rec (SPN)

I don't ship Teh Wincest,* but it says something that this show is summed up pretty perfectly by what is, basically, the Domestic Violence Song.



*Though, now that I've finally seen this show? Yeah, it might be Not My Kink, but it's not crazy. Remind me to do meta on how they collapse all relationships into the one they have with each other. Or, at least, keep trying to, over and over and over again.

Pretty Much Everyone (Brazil) vs. Pretty Much Everyone (Catch-22)

Brazil!Humanity
5(50.0%)
Catch-22!Humanity

Neck and neck, interesting.

[spam]

Every time Hotch says "Reid knew" in "The Elephant's Memory," I find myself saying, "Of course he did, you moron."

Gideon would've gotten it. :P

Villain Deathmatch, Round 1

I say round one, but really it's in no particular order.

The Joker (The Dark Knight, etc.) vs. Alex DeLarge (A Clockwork Orange)

It's SPRING

HELLO, LIVEJOURNAL. I HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A SPLENDIFEROUS DAY.

Yes, that's all I had to say.

Canon Trufax: Supernatural edition

Since shit's going to get meta in about half an hour, anyway:

1) Dean? Yeah, he loves those frou-frou fucking coffee drinks that are more sugar than coffee. There's just no way in hell he'll ever admit it when Sam's in the same state.

2) Sam/Cas? Oh, it's happened. On some level is happening. Will continue to happen. Because they have the most polarized, antagonistic-yet-not-yet-yes thing founded on the utterly fundamental betrayals of both their faiths. Because Sam is fascinated by the entire world Castiel promises, and Castiel is fascinated by the way Sam's hubris exists not despite but as a part of his faith. Because Sam needs saving and Castiel was created for salvation. Because they fight like they fuck and fuck like they fight. Because somehow, really oddly, in his loyalty and fidelity Cas reminds Sam of Ruby, and Sam—well, we already know about Castiel's latent interest in the demonic.

…I need a Sassy icon that's all srs & stuff, apparently.

FACT. I know it's true because it amuses me.

3) Miscellaneously, where is all the Ruby/Meg that obviously needs to exist? Serious question. Links will be rewarded with craptastic fics up to five sentences in length.

4) Also unrelated to anything else: Know what really needs to exist? A Sam vid to "Alice's Restaurant."
And I went up there, I said, "Shrink, I want to kill. I mean, I wanna, I
wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and
guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill,
KILL, KILL." And I started jumpin up and down yelling, "KILL, KILL," and
he started jumpin up and down with me and we was both jumping up and down
yelling, "KILL, KILL." And the sargent came over, pinned a medal on me,
sent me down the hall, said, "You're our boy."

Didn't feel too good about it.

Proceeded on down the hall gettin' more injections, inspections,
detections, neglections and all kinds of stuff that they was doin' to me
at the thing there, and I was there for two hours, three hours, four
hours, I was there for a long time going through all kinds of mean nasty
ugly things and I was just having a tough time there, and they was
inspecting, injecting every single part of me, and they was leaving no
part untouched. Proceeded through, and when I finally came to the see the
last man, I walked in, walked in sat down after a whole big thing there,
and I walked up and said, "What do you want?" He said, "Kid, we only got
one question. Have you ever been arrested?"
IT WRITES ITSELF.

Rest in peace, Nicholas Courtney

Nicholas Courtney passed away earlier today. I hope he went peacefully and best hopes to those who survive him.

Five rounds rapid and a hat-tip, Brigadier.
