Everything that I said was truth as the flashes blinded us in the photobooth

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Man, it has been so long since I've done picspams with real human beings in them. ANYWAY! Today I'm going to do two: one for Justin Long, who plays Bruce Willis's uke sidekick in Die Hard 4.0: Live Free or Die Hard, and the next, for Avril Lavgine, for while I do loathe that girl and that intensely annoying and incredibly catchy Girlfriend song, she can look really, really good. And while I can discriminate on content, I am a sucker for people who look can look great.

And because I dislike Avril both personally and on principle, Justin Long goes first. I suppose it goes without saying, but:

THIS POST is VERY IMAGE-HEAVY and NOT DIAL-UP FRIENDLY.

If you take one lesson but one lesson away from Die Hard 4.0, it is this:

NO SPOILERS


A good seme always protects his uke. NO MATTER WHAT.
Oh God I am so sorry for making this so slash-centric. Not.



Premise of the show is, the bad guys want Matt Farrell, played by Justin Long, whom Bruce Willis is to pick up and deliver to the good guys. Cue Matt following John McClane around like a lost puppy:




UKE IN PERIL MOMENT:



DIE HARD 4.0 SPOILERS START HERE


As I said up there: A good seme always protects his uke. No matter what he has to do or how many people he has to kill to do it. I think that's what had me slashing this pairing so hard. ;) Also, I am a sucker for the KICKASS UKE, which Matt turns out to sort-of-be, as he is a 1337 Hax0r who knows he isn't hero material but MAN, THE BOY DOES THE RIGHT THING, which as McClane says, makes you That Man. He naturally spends the first third of the show totally freaking out about all the crazy people trying to kill him (to be fair, really, wouldn't you?) - which is actually quite amusing. But man, he can kick some serious digital @$$, and there was strength under the freaked-out geek facade, which I really like.

Moral of the story is, seme protects uke until uke learns enough tricks, so when they get into a rough spot, uke can hold his own, and uke can protect him. ♥



Justin Long: brief selection of photographs.
He's the guy who does the Mac VS PC ads. My heavens, now I see why people have been slashing those two.

NO SPOILERS



When goofy, and geeky, is GREAT:


EEEE SO CUTE. ♥ I'd buy a Mac if it came with him. ♥


I always thought this movie was a totally crap comedy, but I guess if he's in it I shall watch it.

I think this photograph really epitomises him:



I would totally not mind being twisted if I could be a GENIUS.
SOME THINGS are worth the sacrifice of SANITY!




This Avril picspam actually arose from my reading a newspaper recently and finding out that Avril Lavgine did fashion photoshoots. "Fashion photoshoots?" I repeated, not particularly politely. "What the hell kind of fashion house would hire her?" Obviously, the same kind of people who think that her music's "matured" in her latest album. Sorry, guys. I don't care how good the rest of her album is, the fact that a song like Girlfriend is on that damned album indicates that it isn't progress you're talking about, it's regression. But enough of my indignation, and on to her!

Avril, it turns out, can look amazingly good in photographs. This will come as a surprise to those of us who are used to her punk-rocker-chick/faux-goth look (this is a milder version of her normal look), but she looks fabulous in glamour photographs. This happened because the sibling was listening to one of her songs set to photographs of her, and I happened to see an utterly amazing photograph that made me go WAIT WAIT that is a BEAUTIFUL photograph WHERE CAN I SEE IT AGAIN? So, kicking it all off with the photograph that changed my mind:





or have it in black and white!

This photograph changed the way I saw Avril forever!
Although I still hate her.














hate the girl, love the photographer.

gotta love wind machines. Gods I hate how this photograph feels exploitative to me, but my heavens, I love the way her hair looks!





And for sheer WTF value and to break your brains maybe a little:


every rocker grrrrl's gotta sell out sometime.



I laughed SO HARD when I saw this photograph, and KNEW I had to put it in a picspam one day.


Incidentally, sarah531 made a great Harry Osborn fanmix: I Will Make You Hurt.

Dude, Accepted is a GREAT movie. (Beside, Justin Long is CUTE)
7th-Jul-2007 05:49 am (UTC)
It is? I shall make a note to check it out the next time I drop by my video store, then! I was afraid it'd be full of spaz.

And oh, yeah, he is cute! ♥ I'd watch stupid movies for cute people, so hearing that Accepted is not-a-bad-movie gives me hope!
7th-Jul-2007 03:42 pm (UTC)
I watched Accepted too! And it was quite enjoyable, actually.

XDD

I was going to see Live Free or Die Hard! And then I saw that the theater was playing Evan Almighty. And, well, how could I pass up and opportunity to watch Steve Carell. :DD

! The Mac guy! I THOUGHT Justin Long looked familiar. *grins* I saw the first picture in the sequence, blinked, and wondered if Apple had some sort of Die Hard promotional deal. ;) Justin Long is so cute. He makes me proud to own a PowerBook. XDDD

Oh God I am so sorry for making this so slash-centric. Not.
XDD AND THERE WAS NO APOLOGY NEEDED, EVEN IF IT WAS FAKED. Hello, slash-centric? I approve.

I really need to see this movie now. :)
Never mind that I've only seen the first Die Hard and have forgotten the story almost entirely. It was probably ten years ago I saw it? Maybe twelve?

My, Avril, how you've... dollified. :D

I am impressed you are willing to post photos in your LJ of celebrities you dislike! Even if they are pretty!
7th-Jul-2007 05:59 am (UTC)
*GRIN!* Maybe next time in the theatres? ;) I think Die Hard is one of those movies you've gotta watch in theatres because of the action and the BANG BANG. ;) But yes, I don't think it could compare to your love for Steve Carell. ;)

XDDDD!!! Way to go getting the Mac guy to play a computer geek. It was really cute, though! ;) And oh OWWW promotional deals. The one movie I remember for it that had promo deals really bad? I, ROBOT.

You own a Powerbook? ;) Cool! ;) A fair number of my friends got Macs when their PCs crashed on them. And man, I've had my PCs crash on me a fair number of times, but I keep going back to them because I'm just so used to the interface. We have a Mac at home, but I'm just not persuaded. It's very pretty and everything, but I'm so used to the PC setup that Mac feels odd and alien. And since I'm on computers mostly for the Internet - I don't do Safari too well, either, and because I like saving pictures, Firefox's extremely irritating picture-saving method drives me up the wall. I used to use Firefox for the tabs until IE got them. ;)

SLASH-CENTRIC IS ALL GOOD AND WONDERFUL. ♥

The first Die Hard had Alan Rickman (Severus Snape in Harry Potter) in it as a terrorist taking hostages in a really tall building. ;) My Dad remembers this movie better than I do. ;) And yeah, it was WAY WAY long ago. ANCIENT! FOSSIL!

Dollified indeed! The last picture made my jaw drop. OH HOW THE ROCKER HAS GIRLIFIED, AND ALL THAT.

XD!! I'm a sucker for pretty photographs, always, and for people I think look good on camera - celebrities wise. ;) In this particular instance, my surprise at how different she could look and how good the photographs were overcame my raging hate. ;)

Alan Rickman!!!!

...sorry for the totally random comment, but I saw the name of my most beloved Potions Master as I was scrolling down the page and I just had to have a brief fangirl spasm XD

D: "Accepted" is HILARIOUS. IMO. Well, cliched a bit, and such and the like, but overall I liked it. Besides that, Justin Long. Good job picking HIM up, Apple, because otherwise I would hate you. D|< But hey; I always try slashing RL people, and I can never really manage it. How strange. u_ú

Oh, wow. I still hate Avril too, but : \ Them's some gorgeous photographs, even the sellout one.

7th-Jul-2007 06:01 am (UTC)
XD Your icon makes me think Transformers would be Guy's FAVOURITE PERFECT MOVIE. ;)

! You liked Accepted! :) I shall go try it out, then, that's two recommendations in four comments! ;) AND THREE CHEERS FOR JUSTIN LONG, though I must imagine that name must get him a lot of jokes. ;)

It's okay! *grin* RPS comes a bit odd to most people, so don't worry about it! ♥ Do what you're comfortable with, and if ever one day you want to slash RL people, you will when the time is right! ;)

You hate Avril too?! *showers love on you!!* ♥

They are such great photographs, aren't they? XDDD It's why I picked them. ;) The sellout one is a pretty great one. If you want to sell out, at least DO IT IN STYLE. ;)
7th-Jul-2007 06:21 am (UTC)
ASLDKFJ yes. It would. *imagines Guy in movie theatre* |D

I do so love Justin Long. He's up there on the top of my, "To Shag" list. It's a very short list. I'm very picky.

Perhaps one day! >8D I know there's probably one somewhere. I just have to THINK OF IT >: \

-_- Ugh, there are people who DON'T? Whatevs. I really despise her and her crappy "music." But yeah, those pictures are really, really good. It makes me feel okay about hating her, though xDD I don't know why.
7th-Jul-2007 02:07 am (UTC)
Your amazing ability to slash anything never ceases to amaze me! <3

I WISH I COULD READ THE SPOILERS BUT I CANNOT. D: You tempt me~

And I HATE Avril. Don't like her music, her style, or anything. But leave it to photographers to make ANYONE look good (with loads of airbrushing I'm sure). If only that would work for me! D:
7th-Jul-2007 06:05 am (UTC) - GUY DOIN' THE HARUHI POSE - just a little. ;)
*grin* I'm slash-indiscriminate. EXTREMELY SO. As long as it gives me HAPPY FEELINGS I will slash it. I've slashed fish in Finding Nemo, and apparently my friends have slashed cars in Pixar's Cars. IT'S ALL GOOD. ;)

*snug!* Sob, I remember this happening for Pirates of the Caribbean, too! I hope you get to see the movie soon! And that you enjoy it!

OMG SAME HERE OMG OMG. I hate Avril with the fiery passion of a thousand suns, but omg. And sweetheart! I think you look lovely without airbrushing! ♥ You've got nothing to worry about.

(and also, airbrushing works for everybody! XD Not that I think you need it. ♥)
8th-Jul-2007 03:13 am (UTC) - Haruhi is LOVE! Everyone pose!
Nemo? Cars? OMG, seeing a movie with you would be SO hysterical! We should totally pick the most innocent movie and SLASH away! XD~

And I saw PoTC3 and FINALLY Blades of Glory- I'm catching up!!

OBJECTION! XD~

16th-Jul-2007 07:27 am (UTC) - *beams!* Finding Nemo slash, and thank you for Die Hard 4! *beams*
*grin* I just found the one Gill/Nemo fic on LJ, though, amanuensis1's An Interlude On Mount Wannahockaloogie, R. I think you might have already found it, though, if you've reading Finding Nemo slash before this? ;) I think the odd one or two might have made their appearance on ff.net.

You're most welcome for the John/Matt picspam! *beams* I saw Die Hard 4.0 and pretty much fell in love with the possibilities right then, and headed straight for Justin Long and McClane/Farrell. ;)

And the following would be entirely capslocked if I were allowed to truly express the intensity of my delight and joy that hard4brains exists. Thank you so much for linking the community: I've been looking for something like this since I watched the movie! *beams* Joined it pretty much instantly. *grin*

On the Matt/Justin hunt, apologies if you've already found it, but I'd be fairly certain you'd found Justin Long Online already? LJ-wise, there seems to be a real multiplicity of Justin communities: justinl_daily, jlong_daily and justinlongfans. And of course, there's die_hardest. ;) My sincere apologies for going on like this, but I'm just so happy to find a fellow Die Hard/Justin Long supporter. ;)

*grin* Woe is the life of a slasher who supports small/obscure fandoms, as I do - and as I think most of us do occasionally. *grin* But the funny thing is, it makes finding fic and source material all the more precious - or at least it does for me. ;)

Mac is <3

Also, Avril looks like Ashlee Simpson in the last photo... Ew...
But the others are really gorgeous.
16th-Jul-2007 07:31 am (UTC)
*beams* Oh my heavens! My apologies, I just saw this! *beams at you!* ♥ Mac is totally love, and I know I'm really late on this particular fandom bandwagon but still! ♥

XDDDDD Avril doesn't look much like herself at all in this photographs. XDDDD I must admit the pink fluffy blonde!Avril photograph was put in there purely for WTF value and to indicate O HOW THE PUNKY HAVE FLUFFIFIED. XDDD but oh yeah, the rest? They were so great.
