falulatonks: ([parks] tom and april - WHAT)
Yes, I'm very busy and important, I just want to say -

NBC just ordered a full season of Outsourced, which means it's not ending in six episodes, which means the slot that we were hoping Parks and Recreation would take in January is full.

NBC, what is your problem. Why did you order a full season of Outsourced. Have you seen any critics liking that show. Why did you order a full season of Parks and Recreation and then not bring it back. Have you seen any critics not liking that show?! I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND YOU RIGHT NOW AND I WANT TO PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE. NBC, I WANT TO PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE.

This is maybe a lot of rage directed towards something of disproportionate importance, but I've been studying a lot and mathematical equations are equating themselves to facts about Cold War history right now and the internet is getting annoying and Fringe isn't back until November and I DON'T KNOW WHEN MY FAVOURITE SHOW IS COMING BACK, IF IT'S COMING BACK AT ALL.

There was a sentence here somewhere containing the words "teetering", "melodrama", and "really fucking wrong", but I can't remember what it was, and I think I may have accidentally deleted it. Oops. It's probably for the best; I start using unnecessarily long words (e.g. "disproportionate importance", what does that even mean) when I get angry.

In other news, today, one of my friends and I dissected everything that's disturbing and wrong and offensive about Twilight to a friend who genuinely wanted to know. We did this instead of studying for an economics test this afternoon. It was time well-spent.

TV for the next few weeks are as follows: Castle, Cougar Town and/or Modern Family, and Fringe. This is a big improvement.

ETA: Stephen Fry on Language, in kinetic typography. I love this. I love words!

ETA again: To be honest and completely rational, I get why NBC is doing what it's doing. And my problem with Outsourced isn't entirely its handling of racial issues, because they do make an effort to make ignorance not mean, but with good intention. I just don't find it funny. (And I'm feeling irrational now, deal with it.)

This entry is so angry, oh my god.

My day:
  • This morning I woke up with my burnt thumb still throbbing.
  • I went online and saw Adam Scott and Natalie Morales talking about being on the set of Parks and Recreation on Twitter, and then I found a video of Adam being really sweet about Amy and Leslie, so that was what cheered me up first.
  • I went to school, found out I have to be singing with a band to perform to a paying audience tomorrow night.
  • Then I went out for lunch with [livejournal.com profile] imprinted_soul and [livejournal.com profile] iloveartyy, meeting them for the first time in ages, which made me happy. Plus we had pancakes with ice-cream and then Swiss rösti and then cheesecake. Hooray!
  • I went back to school and practiced for five hours.
But I am in an OK mood, because of how much I love Parks and how much I adore my friends' company!

I'm going to bed early. I have an entire day of rehearsals tomorrow so that we can be ready to perform at night.

that embraces all ideas...and just shoots...out of its eyes all kinds of beauty..."

It is ridiculous how much I adore Community and Parks and Recreation right now. I spent most of the former laughing a bit like a crazy person, and most of the latter going "awww". Maybe the reason I'm unimpressed or only barely satisfied with anything else I watch (other than Castle, wow, when did that happen!?) is how wonderful these two shows have been. I had full intention of writing everything I loved from these two shows, but now I realise I may not be capable of getting that into words. So instead (I guess) a few things about all four shows behind the cut -

parks, community, the office, 30 rock )

Spent time out with the sister and [livejournal.com profile] imprinted_soul today! We went to check out a "book-fest", but ended up buying one book and ten kinds of stationary each instead. :P Then we had Starbucks coffee and muffins/bagels. It was a good day!
