I've been summoned up from the bowels of accounting hell to update my journal with a meme from the lovely evadne. List your current six favorite songs, then pick six other people that have to do the same.

In no particular order, of course, and subject to change 5 hours from now:

1. "Didn't We" (live), Glen Campbell
2. "Monday Morning," Fleetwood Mac
3. "The Natives are Restless Tonight" (live in Hawai'i), Jimmy Buffett
4. "Baby, Now That I've Found You," Alison Krauss
5. "I'm Down," the Beatles
6. "Daniel" (live), Elton John

...yes, I realize my music taste is hopelessly out of date. My laptop is being wonky, so I've mostly been borrowing my parents' computer, and listening to my father's mp3 collection.

As for tagging 6 people to do this... well, I don't think I even have 6 people on my friendslist, so, everyone on the list, consider yourself tagged!

I was rereading some of my LSH archives, notably the story where all the girls, brainwashed by Femnazis (I'm not even making this up), seduce the male Legionnaires in order to kill them. And I realized that Violet doesn't get to seduce anyone. Even Saturn Girl worked her feminine charms on Superboy. That got me to thinking... Shrinking Violet is one of the most underrated Legionnaires (in any version, even). The case could be made that Garth is the unluckiest Legionnaire, but poor Violet... in the Adventure era, she dates Duplicate Boy, who turns out to be a pretty crappy long-distance boyfriend... in the Baxter era, she's kidnapped and replaced by a Durlan imposter who gets married to Colossal Boy and nobody notices, and in reboot, she's driven crazy by the Emerald Eye. And now, in the latest reboot, Element Lad doesn't even believe she exists. Tsh. Where's the love for the shy girls in the Legion?

I feel like RPing, but titans_academy seems to be in a fallow period for now. Wonder if titanstomorrow is still accepting new people?

The giant posting of Booster's butt is coming. Someday. At least he finally got some love from Beetle in JLClassifed #7. The Boostle friendship makes me so happy and it's about time that showed up in Superbuddies again. The whole Guy/Tora/Fire, thing though? Made me bawl. AT WORK. I was sitting at my desk in the hallway during lunch break, trying not to sniffle too loudly and draw the attention of my supervisors. Just when it seemed like Giffen and DeMatteis had descended completely into the wacky humor, they reminded me why the original JLI series was so excellent-- all the humor is tempered with seriousness and moments of great characterization. But why did it take 10 years and an out-of-continuity series for Ice to get a proper ending?

In other comics-- Geoff Johns needs to stop forcing the name "Conner" on Superboy and on us, but his Kon and Tim continue to be totally in love. and Hal and Kyle were totally making out in the back of that plane. Take that, Carol.

JLI Goodness [Jan. 2nd, 2005|11:51 pm]

So I'm working on a JLI picspam-- an ode to Booster Gold's amazing ass. I swear Kevin Maguire must have spent twice as long drawing in every contour and line of Booster's pants as he spent on drawing, well, pretty much everyone else on the team. I still have about 30 issues to go through, but I've also scanned in some random non-Booster stuff.

Why Giffen should stick to plotting, not drawing.Collapse )

the many cowls of Batman.Collapse )

Fire's not immune.Collapse )

Oops. I kind of forgot I, like, have a livejournal now and stuff. Now that my memory has been refreshed, I can start spamming again. Yay!

I got several happy comic things for Christmas, including the TPB of Formerly Known as the Justice League and the Best of the Legion Outpost. Plus! one of those little Justice League metal figurines in my stocking. It's Batman, so now he's being grim on my keyboard at work. This makes me extremely happy, even while doing completely boring payroll crap.

I bought Sins of Youth for 5 bucks off of Amazon.com and it's one of my favorite things ever now. Baby!Jay has got to be the cutest thing ever. And Teen!Aquaman, being all cocky and hitting on girls and stuff. Too bad the Superboy part with the clones went totally over my head. I can't believe I never read any Young Justice before this... must either hunt down back issues or finally learn how to use that bittorrent stuff so I can download it.

It's been two weeks since Birds of Prey #76 came out, and I still can't find it in either of the comic book shops in my town. Yay for it being such a popular comic here, but boo for me not being able to read the adventures of Black Alice. Guess this is a sign that I need to start a pull list, since I'm also following Rebirth, Superman/Batman, Teen Titans, and JLA Classified (mainly for the upcoming Degiffenmatteis arc, but I'm really loving the current SciFiCloset!Batman). I'd also like to get into JSA-- maybe the next issue will be a good jumping-on point, since the current issue is blather about Identity Crisis. I like Identity Crisis, but I'm kind of tired of all the tie-ins/crossovers.

I have a new icon for all my cracked out scans_daily needs. It's Kory (obviously) from the cover of Blue Beetle #12. I haven't read the actual comic itself, but I don't see how it could match up to the sheer hilarity of the cover (although Jericho's frowny face scares me).


Edit: Okay, so I googled "St. Batman" after reading this entry by plainsong_x, and I found this: St. Batman Crucifixion (not safe for work). I just... I have no words for how incredibly BIZARRE this is. I'm scared... somebody hold me.

So, I really want to get PROTY II put on my license plate. My father has Krypto on his, so now all I have to do is convince my mother and brother to get Streaky and Beppo (sorry Comet, you don't get a plate because I think it's kinda creepy the way you keep hooking up with Supergirl while in human form). Yes, I am REALLY FREAKING COOL, do you even have to ask?

Hmm, I need icons. And a livejournal layout. too bad I'm so lazy, I'd rather cruise the Geoff Johns forums. Is everyone on there a middle-aged fanboy clinging to their fantasies of Zatanna and Wonder Woman having a tickle fight on the JLA Satellite? I guess I'm not one to talk, though... *goes back to ogling the shirtless Batman scan on scans_daily*
