so basically i have nothing at all to say really, about the oscars, except that:



this is the best oscar dress in the history of ALL OSCAR DRESSES EVER.

A: i wonder if the ruffles make noises
me: omg maybe they make a soft like, kind of furry purring noise
A: maybe they doooo
me: i feel that like, when she is bored during the awful five year long telecast she can just swish her legs and pretend she's petting a soft furry creature, and time will pass by faster

I worry that small animals will try and nest in her skirt, but I love it anyway.

I also love that you used the 'cest song as a subject line.

i feel she will welcome the small animals attempting to nest in her skirt, you know? it has to be more entertaining than sitting down near to james cameron (which i will assume she was - don't attempt to correct me with proof otherwise!)

the 'cest songs make the best subject lines. i will use nothing else from now on.

i feel the conversation where nathan says birds talk to him will go like this:

nathan: peter, birds talk to me!
peter: oh that's great nathan, what do they say?

because that's just how peter is.

oh my. it looks like a muppet, you know the big monster ones?

i genuinely loved bjork's swan dress, though.

but it's so lovely! and she looks so happy to wear it!

also i think it helps that she kept her accessories to a minimum, she's only wearing glass crystal earrings and a big purple ring, and never even bothered to paint her nails, not on her hands or her feet, and her face makeup is really light and then the gold on the top makes her skin glow even more and then there are the ruffles, the glorious, glorious ruffles and um, hi i may or may not be more enamored with this whole look than normal whups.

bjork's swan dress was also awesome. <3

the gold top of the dress and the purple ring are so pretty :)

i like this way of thinking! maybe this should be the guideline for critiquing what people wear. i feel like it would result in less negativity overall.

anyway, yes. this is the reason why this is my favourite picture of MV. He looks so proud and happy to be wearing the thing that he's touching!

(yes okay, perhaps that's why milo loves his beard as well. it embodies, i don't know. solidarity with the pasdar? he likes lumberjacks? maybe for his next movie he will BE a lumberjack! oh, ah i keep waiting for order of chaos to show up on torrent sites? it's so sad it has not yet. grr arrggh.)

I'd forgotten that was already out! And, it looks like it's been getting some good reviews! Which is exciting because his films of late ... haven't been. So. Yay! Although reading the synopsis, if Milo was playing the tortured character rather than the baddie, I'd be all over it. But let's see.

maybe for his next movie he will BE a lumberjack!

Or a pirate! Maybe this is why he's growing it out.

and i hope he and pasdar are still friends

Not a pirate or a lumberjack but a drug and criminal kingpin. Bzwuh? But hey, they used a beard picture! I hope he keeps the beard for the movie. I will be so sad when he has to shave it off. :(

Oh, man. Amen to that. And I liked pathology, as you know. But those two? Biggest tools in Hollywood. Jason Statham would do well to distance himself from them, I think. I really liked him in Snatch! Now I'm just like...oh you're the guy who date raped his girlfriend in the street. Which, obviously, he isn't - that was just his character in Crank, but apparently I have difficulty separating fiction from reality, so >:(

But wait a minute, what? Has something happened with A&M? Please don't tell me they've broken up! That would be such a muse-killer.

I hope Milo starts taking some less macho roles at some point. Once he's worked this out of his system :D

I feel so grateful that I haven't seen Crank or anything else (aside from Pathology) by those guys.

Oh, you would *hate* Crank, I think. At least I hope you would. My partner and I watched it after reading about it, because it got some positive post DVD release buzz? God knows why though - we were just bewildered and moderately disgusted by it. (and that's not even addressing the laughable premise. You know I can ignore that shit most of the time, but here the film was so reprehensible, I didn't feel inclined to give them a pass.)

oh, good! *goes back to labouring over stupidly long, quite incomprehensible RP fic*

P.S. Your sleep patterns are just as worrisome as cm's!

I just googled it! Oy vey. The small summary I read makes it sound like the violent, misogynist mirror-image of run lola run (which I liked) so yeah I'm sure I'd hate it.

Yay, you're writing! Will there be more shoes?

My current sleep patterns are strategic! I'm a night owl and in my newest attempt to become a better person I'm trying to reverse that while my partner's away, so er - tonight that means not sleeping at all. And watching 'The Dreamers' which I *knew* I'd hate but I tried anyway and gave up halfway through.

Sadly, so far there have not been any further references to heels. I have an idea of how one might be worked in? But it might be a bit too 'cute' and you won't have any idea of what I mean by that but there you go.

Oh, the old stay awake to reset your sleep patterns thing, huh? I used to *try* to do that after I came off a set of nights, but I always found it really hard to stay up past 3pm ish. Thank god I don't have to do them anymore. Er, good luck with that!

let's pretend they had a fight, which will tots lead to them making outup afterwards. perhaps there will be the joyful, manly tears of reconciliation, followed by hugs and shoulder pats. you know, manfully, like these guys totally are.

oh man i really just want him to go back to playing characters that aren't tools. i feel i have a hard time liking most of his characters, and it's sad, he's so pretty.

From: [identity profile] anansie-s.livejournal.com
Hahahaha. OK! My (baseless) hypothesis is that Milo's choosing all these crappy roles because he's been made insecure about his manliness because Peter is so lovely and good.

Adrian on the other hand has never had to go through that, so he doesn't bother with the manly shoulder pats and posturing (that's Milo's role) and so he goes straight directly for the more intimate forms of er, endearments.

(so i went to bed, and then i woke up, hi...let's re-set our sleeping patterns together!)

oh i think that's possible, especially since his friends are such um. i don't want to say bad things about people i don't know, but they all seem very frat-boy geek types and also don't have the decency to be attractive so i can't slash him with them (damn them!), and i guess maybe he got teased a lot for peter's emo hair and whatever?

i don't think anyone ever has ever thought of AP as a Peter Petrelli type person, which is weird because he seems like such a giant puppy IRL!

Hee. I love you for saying this. They could be perfectly lovely, who knows. But seeing as they're fictional characters ... I dunno, if he doesn't drink or do drugs or party, but still hang out with frat-boy macho types, he's kind of setting himself up to be given a hard time, maybe? IMO.

Sleep patterns are hard to re-set :(

ha! ahem, yes. (seriously how is the dude sXe when all his friends are like, these guys.) also i find their tendency (especially dino's?) to constantly take photos/videos of milo and put them on the internet mildly disturbing. i mean adrian does it and it's WEIRD and these guys do it as well and ahaha sometimes i think that he confuses them because they all want to sleep with him, only that'd be gay and so they hide behind the cameras and take videos of him eating brunch or brushing his teeth because that's entirely heterosexual right?

(but also at some point someone should write that fic where milo turns into a girl and just about every guy friend he has loses their shit entirely...or not.)

did you not manage to do it? :( um, it's 7am and i've been up all night hi!

Ummmm. They make him feel pretty by comparison? But let's not pretend he's a saint, we all know he drinks unicorn blood and that's why he can look like *that* while flushing the toilet.

I had ... never really noticed that so many of his male friends are obsessed with videoing him. Ha. The DSC(?) videos of him brushing his teeth and such, I feel like those are supposed to be experiments by his friends to show off how many thousands of views they will get for something with no content (of course, though, your explanation is the *REAL* one that they refuse to admit).

Aw, 7 am. I hate staying up all night if it's not on purpose. I'm doing ok. I have excellent intentions to do early morning yoga and be all holistic, but really I'm satisfied if I manage to fall asleep by 1. Maybe it's time to bring in the pharamceuticals!?!?

yes yes that's totally what he does. those poor dead unicorns. i don't care if you don't like them, i love them in all their great phallic glory and you're so evil milo!

oh you know see i had suspected that might be it? but then i was like "surely they're jerks but they're not SO JERKY AS TO ACTUALLY DO THAT" and then i dismissed it because i don't think i can handle milo as even a fictional character anymore if he thinks this type of "experiment" is like, even remotely acceptable. i mean wow yes THEY ARE RIGHT people will watch celebrities do just about anything what is the fucking point are you doing anything new or that hasn't already been proven before simply by like, the existence of i don't know, THE ENTIRE CULTURE OF THE PAPARAZZI? ASSHOLES OMG. um sorry, i just worked myself into a rage here i will stop now. um, um. (my explanation is clearly correct, la la la)

Woo! OK, it sounds potentially interesting. And I bet the beard is for the film! If he's narrating it in flashbacks ... don't beards signify regret?

I'm sure he's looking in the mirror all the time going "damn this beard is so adorable on me, I never knew; I'm keeping it forever," so maybe he won't shave it off :D

that's true but - I feel bad for knowing this - after he uploaded it people were all 'you don't seem very regretful' and he said that it was (obviously) an old film, not something he had just recorded. so the dedication to milo was older. but i have no basis for thinking they might not be! ignore me please, i'm annoying myself lately with my negativity, i don't even realise i'm doing it until later

Date: 2010-03-11 10:48 am (UTC)

i hope they don't mean literally narrating. it seems like every other milo v movie/tv-show comes with a voiceover? and i don't know why, it's not like he has profit!voice where you want to hear him speak without his face looking at you.

"damn this beard is so adorable on me, I never knew; I'm keeping it forever,"

i still can't believe you guys have sucked me into liking the beard and wanting it to stay! *shakes tiny little fists of non resistance*

i find it so weird that people will actually like, comment to his youtube. i mean not bad or anything, just weird. i am so old and unused to like, ever being able to communicate with the celebrities i perv over, and having them communicate back. and you're not negative! *hugs you*

Yeah I know what you mean. I know that I wouldn't comment there. but thankfully from what I've seen people are more or less laid back and don't get all creepy at him, and he seems cool in the way he interacts with fans. Generally I like to pretend that celebrities I like are kinda fictional because er .... I don't like celebrities in general. And when I hear stuff about them that makes me realise that that's what they *are*, I get mad at them. So I (unsuccessfully, with these two) try to keep my distance.

thanks for the hugs :D I... sort of am a bit of a grinch lately. But it will be fixed soon.

omg me too! well i'm kind of zen, mostly, about the shit celebrities do, because i just find having a one-way relationship with someone so odd that it's just best to pretend they're part of some kind of massive tv show, and you know most of the time it's just that? you only get glimpses of them anyway, and then a whole bunch of PR stuff, and then them.

i am so old and unused to like, ever being able to communicate with the celebrities i perv over, and having them communicate back.

Me too! I worry that they're being a bit naive about that - especially the older ones like Adrian and Greg and Jack. I feel like they've kind of put themselves out there, not realising that there are some weird and sometimes nasty people on the internets. I mean, most of their fans aren't, but it does leave them exposed to those that are (people passing comment on AP's apparent level of remorse seems inappropriate to me, but then again, if he was using youtube to post messages, I guess he should expect it?). Hayden's smart - she's said she'll never go on twitter, and just as well too. I'm sure she knows that most of the tweets she'd receive would be sexual or critical in nature.

(I think I may have interacted with her little brother Jensen online once. It was the first and only time I'd ever commented on a gossip website, and it was around when their dad got busted for domestic violence. There was this one understated, sad little message from this kid at the very end of a whole stream of nasty comments on a well known paparazzi site, and I felt so bad for him. I guess it mightn't have been him, but it seemed really genuine - there were no theatrics or curses, he was just quietly saying that people didn't know anything about their family, and that he wished they'd all leave them alone for a while. So I commented, just to try and reassure him that the internet - and that website in particular - was not representative of the way most people in the world think and behave (hopefully), and tried to encourage him to avoid the gossip sites. And he commented back. He sounded all grateful just to be getting a friendly and sympathetic message, and yet he still seemed overwhelmed and sad and so, so young. It was awful. Thankfully, it all happened about 24hrs after the story broke, so by that stage no one else was commenting on that thread anymore, having obviously moved on to spit bile at the next celeb that came along. So the only person who commented besides me was someone who seemed to be a friend of his who just said, "hey, it's me, I'm here for you bro, call if you want," sort of thing. Which just made it seem even more likely that it really was him, which made me feel ill. Now, I don't have huge amounts of sympathy for those celebrities who seem to court publicity and scandal, but I do think it must suck to grow up in a celebrity family. So damaging for those young kids.)

oh yes - i mean the internet is vicious dogs who can turn on you in any second. run, guys, run as fast as you can! i mean there are some people who are clearly famewhores and they know what they're getting into when they get on the internet, and encourage the type of behavior that follows, but i don't think these three are in that category (although grunny seems pretty much to know what's going on, idk?), but yeah. and re: hayden, i think i read once that she went on the internet and found people saying the nastiest things about her? and at the time she was like, seventeen or something and i was just shocked because really? picking on a teenaged girl? what, come on? and then i went on some gossip sites and wow, people (including the "reporters") really were that nasty.

i had to google that whole busted for domestic violence thing i had no idea! but oh god that's so sad i don't even know what to say. :( i really still do think it's best for celebrities to just never google themselves, like. ever?

Date: 2010-03-12 02:36 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] miss-miso.livejournal.com
Haha, yeah, you're probably right about Grunny being a bit more savvy, I guess. He did kind of go on twitter with ambitions to get as many followers as possible in a very short space of time, presumably to boost his visibilty for both his yowza thing and his epilepsy awareness stuff, so at least he's making it work for him. And oh, god, the idea of someone like Hayden in particular reading the gossip about her at that age is mildly nauseating. Poor thing. No, really: I know some of the things she says/does come off a bit weird, but I do think the level of criticism she receives is quite unreasonable.
 
And oh shit, sorry for making you google that! I felt really ashamed for even following the link in the first place way back whenever it was, and after reading the comments and briefly trying to restore that kid's faith in humanity (I doubt I managed), I never visited that website ever again because it was just so sickening (I certainly didn't go looking for anything about AP's recent incident). It's like ontd x1000. And I agree, the best policy for a celeb would be to avoid looking at what people are saying, but I think it would be hard not to do it. I was just reading about Corey Haim (*sniff*), and Corey Feldman said that he (Haim) was kind of acutely aware of the horrible things that TMZ etc were saying about him, and it made everything worse. Which, yes, he could have not gone there, but still. Places like that are completely devoid of compassion and empathy, and while I guess there's no fun in being nice, it's depressing to witness.

it doesn't help that he's shorter than the protagonist, and no-one seems to have thought of giving him an apple box to stand on, ahem. i still look forward to it though! you know, when it comes out on DVD.
