Anyone who feels like it should post their ten most CRUCIAL CRUCIAL CRUCIAL-ASS movies, like the movies that explain everything about yourself in your current incarnation (not necessarily your ten favorite movies but the ten movies that you, as a person existing currently, feel would help people get to know you) (they can change later on obviously).

Hedwig and the Angry Inch
M (1931)
Ma Vie En Rose
Adam and Steve
Silence of the Lambs
Double Indemnity
Schindler's List
Legend (1984) (Original and Directors Cuts)
Dead Reckoning
V For Vendetta

If I could add more, it'd be things like Go, Amelie, 50 First Dates, Parenthood, and LA Story. I dropped Trainspotting from the list because I simply can't watch it right now, due to horrible crib death... I used to not care, but now I simply can't endure it.

I went and looked back through this date in all of the 12 years I've had this thing, and I don't care to list the ones where I posted, so no meme there.

Also, I was going to do a meme of posting the first lines of several unfinished stories... but there are so very many. So very.

It is December, but not as cold as it could be. Zzzzzz.

So, Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you one sentence from that story.

...but this cracked me up.

Your job is now your Time Lord name. The last digit of your phone number is the current regeneration you are in. The nearest clothing item to your right is now the most notable item in your current wardrobe. The last person you texted is your current companion. Your favorite word is now your catchphrase.

I am the seventh regeneration of The Tester. My clothing item is a santa hat. My companion is [ profile] andelku. My catchphase is "Lacunae!"

I love this phrasing for so many reasons.

Best. Meme. Ever. Via [ profile] tithenai and [ profile] yuki_onna:

If I were a summonable monster, how would you summon me? (Include items to lure monster-me and method for said fell ritual.)
caudelac: (Amazing!)
From everyone:

If I came with a warning label, what would it say?
caudelac: (Phineas)
From a couple of people; I was simply far too amused by the results not to post:

In 2009, caudelac resolves to...
Learn to play the opera.
Connect with my inner glam.
Find a new decadence.
Get back in contact with some old dark corners.
Take xxgeek cockfighting.
Overcome my secret fear of seamstresses.

Get your own New Year's Resolutions:

Today, my intention is detox. As it is sunny, that means schlepping the two or three blocks down to the beach. MMM, beach.

Bookish meme seen around the interwebs, but most recently on [ profile] ironed_orchid's journal.

1. Take no more than 15 minutes to produce a list of 15 books that have influenced you in style, ideas, relationships, language, or other ways that you find important, and/or books that have really stayed with you -- you keep thinking of that quote, you are always remembering that character, you are frequently reminded of that moment.... that kind of thing. This is not a favorites list.

Time starts now:

1) Just So Stories-- Ruyard Kipling
2) Foucault's Pendulum-- Umberto Eco
3) Secrets of the Shopping Mall-- Richard Peck
4) I, Robot-- Issac Asimov
5) The Silver Link, The Silken Tie-- Mildred Ames

caudelac: (standing out in a crowd.)
via everyone:

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!

My choice.

For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.

What I create will be just for you.

It'll be done this calendar year.

I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

You have no clue what it's going to be.

The catch: You have to put this in your journal as well.

(caveat: I will make a valiant attempt at this, as I now have something vaguely like an organized craftyspace. You do have the right to pester me horribly about things, if you are one of the Five. So.)

Memeity memeity, most recently from [ profile] linaerys:

If you could force me to write anything, what would it be?

Speaking of writing. I should do more of that. [ profile] yuletide helps every year, mais still. Funz.

The Other has the Doom that I had last week. :(
caudelac: (gayer than a big gay thing.)
Out of town for thanksgiving starting tomorrow. Tastes like road trip!

And just in case you were wondering:

In subjective terms, this means you are predominantly homosexual; only incidentally heterosexual.

I like the term, "Only incidentally heterosexual".

My incidental straight is so very gay.

How to Win a Fight With a Conservative is the ultimate survival guide for political arguments

My Liberal Identity:

You are a Social Justice Crusader, also known as a rights activist. You believe in equality, fairness, and preventing neo-Confederate conservative troglodytes from rolling back fifty years of civil rights gains.

How to Win a Fight With a Liberal is the ultimate survival guide for political arguments

My Conservative Identity:

You are an Anti-government Gunslinger, also known as a libertarian conservative. You believe in smaller government, states’ rights, gun rights, and that, as Reagan once said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’”

[ profile] timatschild mentioned a meme about what story it is that one keeps telling-- in one's own stories, I infer. And I thought this would be a good one to think about. So hmm.

I like to write stories of people who are dealing with structures of their own creation, which are unwieldy, but fundamentally solid... and others who interact with those structures. I... grew up isn't the right term, but I was formed by a LOT of Asimov... I like the tale where there's an unusual phenomenon, and the tale of it unfolds through the people around it having to deal with it. Ah logic, ah trial and error, ah innovation. There's the story of those who have something they have made, and now want to know what to do with it. Or the world has ended, and everything they love is destroyed... now what?

I think that's the story I keep telling most. 'Now What?'

Oh yes, and short little tales about Princesses, who are Lost, and that other one, which is about Heart's Desires, and those who deal them. And those who buy them, naturally.

I feel like there's more to add here, but I think those portions of my brain are offline at the moment.
caudelac: (Bookish!)
The meme says: You comment and get a letter. Then you take said letter and list 5 of your favorite fictional characters whose names begin with it and say why you like them.

So [ profile] technoir, being an utter darling, gave me W.

Okay, here goes.

Wesley-- from the Princess Bride. He's not my very favorite character in that movie, but he's Cary Elwes, and well... he's also the Dread Pirate Roberts and I think I have some sort of cultural obligation to be fond of him.

The White Rabbit-- from Alice in Wonderland. Because I, too, am late. And other obvious reasons.

Winnie the Pooh-- Semper Ludet.

Waldo Lydecker-- From the movie Laura. Played By Clifton Webb. Possibly one of the most awesome film noir characters of all time-- words simply do not suffice. Fabulous Psychopaths with white carnations and walking sticks ftw.

Waldo-- Like most kids in the late 80's/Early 90's, I spent a considerable amount of time looking for waldo. Sometimes I found him, sometimes I didn't. But he will always find a place in our hearts.
