+ Replica Put Those Clothes BACK ON! +

Fall Into the Abyss.

Today's Abyss group meet was actually incredibly, incredibly fun. I left the office at 8.15am (last days always make you finish late), and I thought I was going to be really, really exhausted: it was a tiring day work-wise all round, and due to finishing up work which even the lawyer who assigned it to me thought couldn't be done in one day, I did it. I thought I was going to be utterly exhausted, and I'd picked up the beginnings of a cough (infections spread so very fast in office environments, such a great place for a 28 Days Later scenario), but man, did we have fun. There's LJ comment-crack and there's pchat crack and there's general MSN crack, but RL in-person crack beats them all hands-down. It kind of helps that I liked our Luke, our Dist and our Van (who, incidentally, has a seme aura that somehow all of us happily gravitate towards) pretty much instantly on sight, and I'd already met Asch years ago (equally incidentally, our Asch can really sing, as can our Van, and our Legretta can play the violin on the Esplanade rooftop with so much style! ♥). It's just really rare for me to feel this comfortable with a group I've not known for long this fast. And the sky was in complete agreement: towards the end of the night, the stadium started rehearsing the light shows for the upcoming National Day, and the sky lit up with the most vivid purple light just like the way the Abyssworld sky looks when the world's fallen into the Qlippoth.

I can't help but think that some of the goings-on tonight could be summarised like Collapse )

Also! We got to talking, and this is or a_songfor_xx (when I saw you, I honestly and completely thought and KNEW I'd seen you somewhere before, and then you told me we had pic_murasaki as a friend in common) and lil_kitt:

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

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:

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.

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:

I know it's been said before, but Livejournal, you never let me down.

Just when you think you've seen it all, Livejournal will prove to you that really, no, you haven't. A comment from la_muerta made me realise that, yeah, I'd heard about Mac/PC slash before, but I didn't know if it existed, so - why shouldn't I go take a look? And, OH, my GOD, I found mac_hearts_pc. I did not even know that there would be a community for it, but I figure, if there's a healthy fandom for bladesofglory, anything can happen, right? ;)

This is from the Get a Mac Mac VS PC ads. People slash advertisments, I love the world.

You'll never think about networking sessions (fic link) the same way again. ;) Here are some recs I found, and some more, though I haven't tried them yet. smallfandomfest turned up this fic. If you own a computer and it breaks your brains and sometimes your heart, you might like this. If you feel you do want to venture in, you might want to try this first: Shared Space (G). Personally, I started with Security Updates (PC-13).

The rapid-fire posting, I think, is due to an explosion of the pent-up lack of LJ that work usually results in. ♥
