Finn Nelson is the new Pacey Witter… and other reasons why you need to join My Mad Fat Diary watching party

Pacey 2.0 you say? Those are fighting words in some circles.

 Remember that time Pacey defended Joey’s honour when her mural was ruined? I sure do!

Yet watch My Mad Fat Diary series one along with me (it’s only six episodes long) and you’ll discover that this along with a multitude of other reasons make MMFD one of the best TV shows EVER. It filled the hole that Friday Night Lights left in me.

It is as rewatchable a show as I’ve ever come across. Regular readers of my blog know that I love to slice, dice and just generally dissect and overanalyze relationships from TV shows I adore. It’s the nature of fandom bases like WordPress, Tumblr and Livejournal to pick apart every little thing about a show, rewatching things again and again for new meanings and making speculation for future plotlines.

The monumental attention to detail in MMFD shows some tender loving care in everything from writing and acting to set design and soundtrack, and I’ll be spending the next few weeks recapping this show and breaking down all of those elements.

So why should you watch along with me? Check out my reasons below if you’re a newbie. And come along for the ride if you’re not so that you can fall in love with the show all over again!

New and unexpected challenges & emotional confrontations. Also, starch – Got Forwood Spoiler Whore – Tyler/Caroline Speculation – Vampire Diaries Season Three

So, I stumbled across a Matt lovers Vampire Diaries haven recently and… let’s just say that I’ve decided that I need to severely limit my starch and carbs intake.

Matt Dovovan AKA Mr Mashed Potatoes (TM Price), the greatest unintended ambassador of the Atkins diet ever.

After my brief time hanging around these slightly disturbing quarters of one of the five food groups (hey, I had to see it to believe it!), you have no idea how much I was looking forward to getting back to Forwood-y fuzzy goodness.

Got Forwood – Tyler & Caroline Recap – The Sun Also Rises – The Vampire Diaries

Source

This week’s episode of the Vampire Diaries, The Sun Also Rises, will forever be known to me as The Naked Tyler Lockwood Show, and for that reason it’ll always hold a special place in my ovaries.

Be warned, smutty innuendo aplenty will feature in this recap. Dangle Naked!Tyler in front of us going “here fangirl, fangirls”, writers, and we will come a-running and a-panting with naughty thoughts.

There was an actual plot in the Tyler/Caroline/Matt parts of the episode, so let’s tackle that shall we?

Haven’t read Part I and Part II of the Damon Mixtape Series yet?

As Damon would say…

How could I do a Damon Mixtape without a little shout out to KJewls‘ humour? 😉

But seriously, you should if you haven’t, because I’m just going to jump straight in after the lyrics!

SPOILER WHORE Got Forwood – Tyler & Caroline Speculation – The House Guest – Vampire Diaries

Well, guys, there was no Got Forwood recap last week, because, well there was no Caroline OR Tyler to be had.

The positive side is that there was no Caratt, making me evilly happy about all the pissed off Matt bunnies out there.

I hate everything

But no Caroline meant no insight into her reaction to Tyler’s departure, or for that matter, the way Matt chooses to deal with the information Tyler gave him before he left, namely that he had fallen for Caroline.

So, even though I have my reservations about entering Matt World, I admit there are a few things that intrigue me enough to be willing to venture there.

(Late) Tingling Trevino Tuesdays – Tyler Mixtape

Unless otherwise credited, all awesome GIFs and images come from Gen of txgirl0302 Tumblr

I love obligatory psychotic jackasses who reveal an underbelly that is both soft…

… and rock hard.

I love screen caps that capture inexplicable facial expressions!

So, in the immortal words of Pacey Witter, is it any wonder that I have fallen 100 per cent ass backwards in love with Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino) of The Vampire Diaries?

Mixtape Mondays – Usher Mix

I love you too, Usher!

The countdown has begun for Usher’s OMG Tour in Australia, and I recently picked up my tickets for the event and got to gaze at them with awe-struck wonder.

Currently, these tickets sit in a crystal vault, with a disco ball revolving above it. And with angels playing harps nearby. That is how much I dig Usher.

There are three songs of his that hold a particularly special place in my heart. I don’t think I shock anyone when I say that the letter “U” is involved in all of their titles.

Mixtape Mondays – Spidey Edward & Spidette Bella & Spidey Jacob – New Moon

In the Twittersphere…

@CherieBee27 I’m starting to doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion. Why is your New Moon mixtape late?

@SMeyer Well, I’ve been putting it off because a piece of my soul dies every time I try to recap what annoys me about that book

@CherieBee27 So why don’t you just do a tweetcap? Twitter makes everything awesome *cough* #NoTwitterJulie

@SMeyer You’re so right! #IanSexyhalder #PaulSexley #TrevinoWereSexGod OK, now I’ve got that out I’m ready!

Mixtape Mondays – Spidey Edward & Spidette Bella – Twilight

AwesomeTwilightCartoon

Depending on my mood, the Twilight series is one of two things…

1)      The worst fiction to ever be printed on poor, innocent, defenceless ex-trees.

2)      Literary crack fiction of the highest order that deserves its own book shelf, complete with revolving disco ball, rainbow sparkles and unicorns trotting around. (Yes, I’m aware that I constantly refer to unicorns when describing my obsessions; Veronica Mars fans will understand).

To give you an example of my schizophrenic taste in things, here are my two favourite Y2K songs:

I stand by the latter without any shame 😉

 

So, anyway, I re-read the first Twilight book for this mixtape post, dutifully recording thoughts in my trusty notebook along the way.

These notes started off as an honest attempt to do an in-depth analysis of their character dynamics, but quickly devolved into this…

P37 His hair was dripping wet, dishevelled – even so he looked like he’d just finished shooting a commercial for hair gel. His dazzling face was friendly, open, a slight smile on his flawless lips.

Seriously SMeyer, just f**k your own literary creation already and get it over with, kthnxbye. Also, dazzling. And what exactly do flawless lips look like anyway??

P192 The overpowering craving to touch him also refused to fade, and I crushed my fists safely against my ribs until my fingers were aching with the effort.

JUST F**KING TOUCH HIM ALREADY BELLA! Who cares if he treated you like you had an airborne contagion before?

P220 I knew I was far too stressed to sleep, so I did something I’d never done before. I deliberately took unnecessary cold medicine – the kind that knocked me out for a good eight hours.

Haha! Gratuitious drug use in a Mormon Vampire Bible. Love it!

P233 “It’s twilight,” Edward murmured, looking at the western horizon, obscured as it was with clouds. His voice was thoughtful, as if his mind were somewhere far away. I stared at him as he gazed unseeingly out the windshield. I was still staring when his eyes suddenly shifted back to mine.

“It’s the safest time of the day for us,” he said, answering the unspoken question in my eyes. “The easiest time. But also the saddest, in a way…the end of another day, the return of the night. Darkness is so predictable, don’t you think?” He smiled wistfully.

*Spidey aneurism* You so deep, SMeyer.

Right around the part where Edward gives Bella a kiss that LITERALLY STOPS HER HEART, it started becoming impossible to form coherent thoughts.

One actual note:

GAH!BGA;OPGBAPO;GBAOP;GBA[!!!!!!KOJBGAP;BELLAIHATEYOUGHAGENBABAABHA

It was at this point I realised that Twilight Mood #1 had me firmly in its grasp, and when it came to writing this mixtape I was in more trouble than a pregnant nun.

All I could think of was writing a mixtape of the most jaw-droppingly, batshit insane themes/moments of the first Twilight book.

So here they are, let me show them to you.
