I can’t believe this just popped up in my feed. thesilversasser (http://thesilversasser.tumblr.com/) just gave me this movie for my birthday this week.
STOP! PARTY THIS WAY
Had a really good birthday (week?). Got to see most of my favorite people, and spend good quality time with folk of whom I’m fond. Saw one great sci-fi film and one that was beautiful in spite of itself. Ate Chinese food, discussed Wrath of Khan, went swimming, fought over a kiwi, learned a new game, and talked like Lemongrab.
A fairly auspicious beginning to the back half of my twenties.

30 Days of Music: Day 1: A Song That Makes You Happy.
I’m not going to lie, I know this is mainstream as all get out, dated, and a one-hit wonder. But it cheers me up every time.
*Memory: Doing this at Karaoke as a duet with Whitney Brown.
30 Days of Television: Day 30: Saddest Character Death
OK, so, spoilers! You guys, the death of Wally in the series finale of Young Justice was heartbreaking. Like, he was the quippiest of the original team, then got shoved off into a walking cameo part for all of season two while his girlfriend went undercover. She finally breaks free, comes back… and then he dies. A lot of characters I like have died and returned (Buffy, Starbuck, Aeryn Sun, Spock, countless others), but this was a series finale, and that gives his death that finality that makes it the most upsetting.
