1. Reply to this post with "CAUSE I'M THE GODDAMN BATMAN," and I will pick four of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Icons were picked by [livejournal.com profile] therealycats

1.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first full-length animated film made, and Snow White was the first Disney princess. This movie was made in the 1930s, an era before women's lib and ladies were expected to wait on their men and be happy little housewives. Yeah, Snow White offers the dwarfs her homekeeping expertise in exchange for letting her squat in their abode away from her evil stepmother. Feminism? Puh-lease.

2.
On the flipside, here we have Disney animation's 50th full-length animated film, Tangled. This here is a scene from the "Mother Knows Best" sequence. Rapunzel just wants out of the tower to go see those mysterious floating lights. And her damn mother's doing all she can to scare her enough to not want to leave the tower. Mother Gothel's kind of a bitch like that.

3.
LAWL, it's a Baby-Sitters' Club-centric one. This is a quote from the book where Stacey developed a crush on her substitute math teacher (Wes). Because Stacey McGill is a boy-crazy diabetic math enthusiast. Oh, and she babysits, too. And she's from New York City.

4.
OH GOD, THIS ONE. This is from the more adult-oriented "Ren and Stimpy" episodes that John K. was asked to do for Spike TV. There's an episode where Ren and Stimpy go to the beach, and all pervy Ren does is ogle the hot chicks. I use this icon over at posts at ONTD involving overly sexy types; it's been getting a lot of use in Courtney Stodden posts lately. But OH MY GOD, the animation done on how boobs move when a woman runs is very well done here. It's like "Baywatch" or something!

Let's see how much of this actually gets done, *heh*.

*tangent* I had that dream again last night. (No, not the one where Seth MacFarlane called me a "c*nt" and I laughed it off.) The recurring one where I'm in a toy store and amble about to the doll section and see it. The long-awaited Jem section with new dolls. And I freak out and buy up the whole section, and everyone in Toys 'R Us just looks at me funny like I'm a nutjob. YES, this is a recurring dream. And yes, this dream probably happened because of the Hub picking up "Jem" and the prospect of the new DVD set, and man we have got to get on the ball at Starbright Continued. (Because just the other week, there's been discussion of what characters we're keeping/not using and just what we're doing storyline-wise.)

Hey, new things to add to list:

--Work on Rio revamp
--Plan on what to do with Eric Raymond (now that they've convinced me to pick him up; I could have fun with the bad guy!)
--A new "Jem" snark! With slash-goggles for [livejournal.com profile] cosmosmariner!

And speaking of "Jem" stuff...for anyone who's on Twitter, I guess Jerrica Benton has a Twitter account! http://twitter.com/#!/starlight_music (I guess she doesn't have a whole lot of followers yet.)
hollybrooke: (My Little Pony!!!)
The Tangled-inspired layout was cute, but I was ready for a change. If you can't tell, the background is supposed to be glittery black, but I suppose it looks more like TV screen static. *ha ha* I like it, though.

*tangent*

My car has dried out, for the most part. I was sitting on a ShamWow to dry out the driver's seat and to prevent my butt from getting wet, so it doesn't look like I peed my pants or something. I'll have to do something about the insides of the windows so they don't get too streaky. Anyone know how to wipe down windows so this doesn't happen?

Oh, who am I kidding? I'll have to do some major detailing to my car next week on vacation. I may even have to special order some touch-up paint from Ford to take care of all the dings in the paint. I don't even have that many, but after six years of having the car, they're bound to come up. I also need to be looking at new tires, I need to replace my back windshield wiper (Target doesn't carry that size, but AutoZone does), I need to take care of some rusting I'm getting on the driver's and passenger's doors, and I need to get my oil changed soon. But yaaaay, I only have about three payments left on that thing! It'll be nice to have an extra $250 a month to sock away in savings!

I won't really be in the market for a new car for a while, though. I like my Focus. It's fuel-efficient. And it's bright yellow. :P I know I've bitched in the past about how I won't get another Ford, but I'll just have to weigh my options in the next few years when I'll be seriously thinking about it. The next car I get will probably be something a little more sturdier with four-wheel drive, though. And if electric cars are more prevalent in the next few years (we can only hope the world gets more eco-friendly and open to electric cars...), I may consider that option as well.

*tangent* VACATION STARTS NEXT WEEK! Wait, I already mentioned that, didn't I? Who cares!

IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT'S TRUE.

Yeah, Flynn kind of gives off this elitist college student vibe when you throw some glasses on him. It works.



In other news, MORE SNOW?!! You've got to be kidding me. Yeah, it's only 2 to 6 inches, but seriously, snow? I thought we were over. Am I going to have to get a restraining order against you?

Sandra Lee Now Shamelessly Shilling for Pyrex!

Sandra Lee’s endorsing a new product: PYREX! You know, the glassware company we all know, love, and used to respect.

They hired Sandra Lee, a “home and food expert” (excuse me while I try to type over my uncontrollable laughter) to stand on a kitchen set, hold up “I love Pyrex” potholders, and give tips on how not to blow up your kitchen while cooking with Pyrex. Don’t put it over a direct flame! Make sure your food stays moist! Never put it under a broiler! Uh, thanks, but if you need to be told those things, please call 1-800-clueless-moron. Someone will take your call just as soon as they’re available.

Here’s the video:

So I put in my real name for this, because "Holly" pops up in HOW many Christmas songs? And here's what I get:

On the first day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me,
A holly in a pear tree.

Hmmm....
hollybrooke: (Rapunzel and Pascale)
I went home early from work yesterday, feeling like I was going to throw up and having bad aches and pains all over my body. The thing that really sucked about it is that I missed out on the staff Christmas shindig (a half-hour break, with goodies in the breakroom). I probably could've sneaked up there before I left for home, but I really was in no urge to eat anything. When I got home, I had some bad diarrhea, but I never threw up. I took some Pepto-Bismol and a couple of Aleve and went to bed watching my "Shin Chan" DVDs.

The weather today has been craptacular, and since I've conveniently gotten sick with this weather (temperature in the teens, sub-zero wind chills, snow and winds up to 50 MPH, white-out conditions, blizzard-like), I called off work today. Yes, I'll miss out on my Sunday pay, but I really didn't want to risk another potential diarrhea flare-up or possibly actually getting sick on the job.

I am now out of Pepto, and I have NOT stepped out of my house all day.

So what DID I do all day?

*strums guitar*

7 AM, my cell phone alarm goes off
Start up the coffee, make sure my teeth are clean
Scrambled some eggs, put on some jeans, then called off
Back to bed once again, woke up at 8:15

And so I read a book
And then I made some tea
I checked my email
Then I browsed ONTD
I watched YouTube and news
Put up my Christmas tree
Just wonderin' when will my life begin?

PB and J for lunch, made sure it stayed down
Sat on the can,
Organized my dresser chest
Made my bed, napped on it
Missed a call from Kevin
Then I sketched, did a stretch
Put dog out
(What a mess!)

And then I read a book
Plenty of time to spare
Painted my nails once more
Added some extra flair
And then I brushed and brushed
And brushed and brushed my hair
Watching the snowstorm settling in
And I'll keep wonderin', wonderin'
Wonderin', wonderin'
When will my life begin?


(And just to let you know, that DID all happen today, and I just came up with that song off the top of my head. I also let my imagination get the better of me while working on a submission for that disney_kink community.)
hollybrooke: (How YOU doin'?)
(Step away from the computer, Holly...)












And for anyone who's interested, I've done the math to see just how long Rapunzel's hair would have to grow per month over 18 years to get it to 70 feet. On average, hair grows half an inch every 2 months. (ON AVERAGE. Personally, my hair grows about an inch every month; I'm a freak of nature.) If the average person goes 18 years without cutting their hair, it would get to 4 and a half feet.

Rapunzel's hair would have to grow about four inches per month to get to seventy feet by the time she turns eighteen. (Actually, it'd be a little over seventy feet at four inches a month.) That's about an inch a week.
hollybrooke: (And yet ANOTHER Rapunzel icon)
(......Well, maybe just a little.)





More to come. Having too much fun. I'm thinking of working on a Pascal-inspired mood theme.
hollybrooke: (Cinderella Castle)
Yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] maz_z:



I've been doing a lot of cleaning all day. Yesterday, too.

Now I must go meet my prince by 6:30 PM. Gonna go catch the live RiffTrax event. (They're doing Reefer Madness.) And the poor guy needs a distraction from all the hospital stuff.
hollybrooke: (Slutty Sandy)
Day 01- The best movie you saw during the last year -- Toy Story 3, hands down. It was the only movie I was really looking forward to seeing this summer. We'll see what comes out later on this year, but still not over the TS3 love.

Day 02 - The most underrated movie -- Grindhouse. (ESPECIALLY Planet Terror.) It was MEANT to be campy and gruesome. And people just didn't want to sit through a double feature. And Death Proof was pretty cool once you got past all the exposition that you normally get in a Tarantino film.

Day 03 - A movie that makes you really happy -- Enchanted. That movie was so freaking adorable. (I especially loved when Giselle was offered the apple martini and Robert said something along the lines of, "Wow, everyone likes to give you free stuff, huh?")

Day 04 - A movie that makes you sad -- Beaches. I think everyone knows why. I don't know anyone who doesn't cry buckets at the end of that movie. That, and Steel Magnolias.

Day 05 - Favorite love story in a movie -- It's going to sound so cliché, but Allie and Noah in The Notebook. To think that a love like that could survive after Allie's mother would object to her being with Noah and him writing her every day for a year and thinking she just gave up on him because she never responded....it's the stuff that makes for a really good movie. Good book, BETTER movie.

Day 06 - Favorite made for TV movie -- A while back...it wasn't VERY long back, though...ABC had aired this movie about Anne Frank with Ben Kingsley in it playing Otto Frank. It was a two-parter, and the entire last hour was shown commercial-free and with a mature content warning because it went into detail about how Anne and her family suffered in the concentration camps after they were caught. It wasn't the same thing as the movie with Millie Perkins, which was just the stage version as a movie. They put a lot of research into what was going on not just with Anne and her family and the Van Pels' and Mr. Pfeffer, but what Miep and her co-workers were having to deal with just trying to keep them hidden. I was VERY lucky that I found it on DVD; I paid a pretty penny for it, and I can't bring myself to sell it.

Day 07 - The most surprising plot twist or ending - Regina George posting her picture in the Burn Book and getting even with Cady in Mean Girls. It was a very underhanded thing to do, and I totally didn't see it coming when I first saw it, but it made sense.

...I always felt kind of bad for Regina George towards the end of Mean Girls. Yeah, she was an intimidating bitch, but did she really deserve what happened to her? I believe in karma, but wow. The girls that she thought were her friends (ESPECIALLY Cady) kind of stabbed her in the back, and she ended up getting severely injured in the end. NO one deserves that, I don't care HOW mean you are. And to think that Janis Ian was the one who masterminded all of that in the first place....who's truly the mean girl in all of that?

Day 08 - A movie that you’ve seen countless times - Obviously, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. (Go check out http://www.helpmemommy.com )

Day 09 - A movie with the best soundtrack - Detroit Rock City. Lots of awesome rock music from the 70s, mainly KISS.

Day 10 - Favorite classic movie - Probably Gone With the Wind. And I had never been able to sit down and watch the whole movie in one sitting until recently! (I would always watch the first hour and then have to do something, or I would come in when it was half over.) I still love it so freaking much. Especially when Rhett forces Scarlett to go to the birthday party and makes her wear that red dress, and he tells her something along the lines of, "Here, wear this, it'll suit the occasion" all snarky-like. Rhett was freaking awesome.

Day 11 - A movie that changed your opinion about something - Dogma. Here's the thing. I'm not a particularly religious person. I was raised Baptist as a kid, and I stopped going to church regularly after my church got a new clegyman because we (meaning my whole family) didn't agree with some of the things the new clergyman was preaching about in his sermons. It's not like I've turned my back on religion or Christianity or anything...it's just that I don't particularly agree with the idea of organized religion.

There's a part in Dogma when Bethany is talking with Rufus on the train about how Jesus doesn't like how we've taken something like Christianity and separated it into so many factions. And because of that, it causes so many scuffles and skirmishes between different religious groups. Hell, people go to wars over this kind of stuff. I can't remember the exact quote, but Rufus said something along the lines of "It's easier to have a good idea instead of a belief. You can change an idea, but changing a belief is trickier." And it just made me feel a little more secure in not wanting to go to church every week. I consider myself to be an independent worshipper. I mean, I know how to read, and I'm smart enough to read the Bible and interpret it for myself. I don't need to go to church every week and have some clergyman preach to me about how I'm going to hell and make me feel bad about myself.

Day 12 - A movie that you hate - The remake of The Stepford Wives. Hated it. HAAAAAAAAAAAAATED it. The original is tons of amazing, but the remake was just terrible. And it made no sense towards the end!

Day 13 - A movie that is a guilty pleasure - Hmm....I had to think long and hard about this one. There are quite a few movies that I'm kind of ashamed to admit that I love. But nothing tops the ridiculousness of.....She-Devil.



The Queen Actress Herself, Meryl Streep, in a movie with Roseanne Barr and Ed Begley Jr. of all people. The late-80s fashion sense. Mary Fisher's downward spiral, Robert's skeeviness, and Ruth just taking over her life as Vesta Rose. I. LOVE. THIS. RIDICULOUS. MOVIE.

(Troop Beverly Hills is a close second.)


Day 14 - A movie that no one would expect you to love - Probably Cannibal! The Musical. So many people see it in my DVD collection and ask about it, and I'm the one who has to explain it was the first movie that Trey Parker and Matt Stone made while in college before "South Park" took off as well as it did. It's such a craptacular movie, but it's hilarious. It's for the true Trey Parker/Matt Stone fan.



God, look at how young and skinny Trey was there!

Day 15 - A character who you can relate to the most -

I feel this could be best expressed by song:



Day 16 - A movie that you used to love but now hate - Okay, I know I've posted it before, so everyone knows about my love/hate relationship with Grease. But let me restate it. I loved Grease when I was a teenager, but over the course of time, I've seen it so many times, I've seen so many stage productions of it, I've done the songs for show choir and I've heard so many craptacular karaoke versions of "We Go Together" and "Summer Nights" that I can't stand it anymore.

Not only that, but I don't like the fact that by the end of the movie, Sandy figures out the only way to get Danny back is to make herself over into a skank, and it's okay with everyone. Yet Danny lettered in track and got his letterman's sweater and the T-Birds just made fun of him (briefly) for it until he told them, "You guys aren't going to be following me for the rest of your lives, right?" It's lame when Danny does something (sort of) productive with his downtime during high school, but Sandy gets the slutty makeover and everyone loves it because she's sexy all of a sudden. Yeah.

Day 17 - A movie that disappointed you the most - Superman Returns. It was just another unnecessary sequel. The only good thing about it was Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor because it's Kevin Spacey, for crying out loud. But yeah, that one was a bit letdown. Had a hard time buying Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane (I always felt they could've cast someone a little older, or someone who looked like a bit of a harried working mother), had a VERY hard time buying Superman lifting an entire island of KRYPTONITE, and the last thing....this is the movie James Marsden passed on doing X-Men 3 for?! (Or only showed up for the first five minutes, anyway.)

I hated it. I downright hated it. And I cling even more tightly to the original versions with Christopher Reeve to this day. (The original Superman was on AMC the other day, actually!)

Day 18 - A movie that you wish more people would’ve seen - Death Becomes Her. (Yeah, another Meryl Streep "crap-o-rama," LOL.) I've been kind of obsessed with it lately. I don't get why this movie didn't get enough love! It's not really a horror movie, it's more like a funny "Twilight Zone"-ish movie. Or like Tales From the Crypt, more like. Brilliant comedic performances from Bruce Willis and Goldie Hawn and (of course) Meryl Streep. And Isabella Rosellini is hot as BALLS in it. SUCH an underrated movie. And I want to make animated gifs from it so badly.



Day 19 - Favorite movie based on a book/comic/etc. -

Off a book: the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Those were some of the best damn book adaptations I had ever seen. (I can overlook the elimination of Tom Bombadil from the first book, because that section did get a bit boring.) And The Two Towers was probably the best one out of the three; I think I saw it four times in the theater.

Off a comic: I'm going with Watchmen.

Day 20 - Favorite movie from your favorite actor/actress -

Kevin Spacey--American Beauty and 21.
Reese Witherspoon--Legally Blonde and Election.
John Travolta--Pulp Fiction

Day 21 - Favorite action movie - For the longest time, I would've told you Terminator 2. But I'll be honest. The Dark Knight was just that much better. Nothing can beat the semi trailer chasing the Batpod. In IMAX. That was just fucking AWESOME.

Day 22 - Favorite documentary - Waking Sleeping Beauty. It'll be HELL waiting for that to come out on DVD.

Day 23 - Favorite animation - In my opinion, nothing can beat the one that started it all.



1:26 For as realistic as we can nail rippling water with computer-generated animation nowadays....NOTHING can top the special effects used when Snow White's singing into the well. That's just PERFECT and looks MUCH more realistic than what computers can do NOW.

Beauty and the Beast is a close second, however. A VERY close second.

Day 24 - That one awesome movie idea that still hasn’t been done yet - I don't know. Something ORIGINAL that's not a remake of something that's already been done?! (Oh, I know what's awesome. I'm just not going to post it, lest someone steal my idea.)

Day 25 - The most hilarious movie you’ve ever seen - I'm inclined to say Tropic Thunder, but I don't want to be like everyone else who's responded with this. So it's a toss-up between Dumb and Dumber. That movie never gets old and never fails to make me laugh.





Day 26 - A movie that you love but everyone else hates - Cloverfield. I freaking LOVED it. I loved the whole viral campaign leading up to it, too. I really can't wait for Super 8 to come out.

Day 27 - A movie that you wish you had seen in theaters - I would've loved to have seen the first preview test screenings of The Wizard of Oz. Apparently, there was a LOT of stuff that was cut from the film after the first few preview screenings because the movie was running too long. Plus, about a dozen of Margaret Hamilton's lines as the Wicked Witch were cut because she was just too scary for the kids in the audiences to handle.

Oh hell, I would just love to actually see The Wizard of Oz in a theater, no matter what. I've seen it so many times on TV and on tape/DVD, it'd be a nice change of pace to see it in an actual theater.

Day 28 - Favorite movie from your favorite director - I'll reserve that for number 30, because it's the same thing.

Day 29 - A movie from your childhood - Any random movie from my childhood? I'll go with The Muppet Movie. I know it came out in 1979, and I was born in 1980, but I think I've seen it so many times when I was a kid on tape or on TV. Love it.



Okay, Frank Oz, this alone can make up for the piece of crap that was your remake of The Stepford Wives.

Day 30 - Your favorite movie of all time -
I don't need you to tell me how fucking good my coffee is, okay? I'm the one who buys it. I know how good it is. When Bonnie goes shopping, she buys shit. I buy the gourmet expensive stuff because when I drink it I want to taste it. But you know what's on my mind right now? It AIN'T the coffee in my kitchen, it's the dead nigger in my garage. )
