Logan & Veronica: Perfectly Flawed

Of course I want Veronica Mars to win. But let me tell you how much I’m surprised and happy that Free!Iwatobi Swim Club is in the final and actually beat Attack On Titan. Because AOT has a bigger fandom, and Free! has a smaller fandom but their fandom is pretty strong, like VMars.

Community is also a smaller fandom than the previous fandom they beat. It’s a cult show, and also my favorite, despite the problems and the wane enthusiasm. But the cult fans wants SIX SEASONS AND A MOVIE so I can understand the pressure.

Supernatural definitely is the biggest fandom compare to three, and I definitely wants VM to have its recognition. Although we beat Divergent twice, we still don’t have that big recognition, and we want people to take notice now. And also this would prove that we have an audience to make more show/franchise.

Just wanna let everyone know that I hope we will face Free!Iwatobi Swim Club. The show is seriously fun and full of half naked men and UST with HoYay vibe. Again, I want VMars to win. But pay a serious attention to that anime.

The idea that nerds are awkward and don’t ever socialize is the stupidest stereotype ever because like

Have you ever seen two nerds together?

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A CONVENTION?

Give us a topic of a common interest and we’ll socialize way past what normal people can tolerate.

Just because we don’t want to talk to you doesn’t mean we don’t want to talk.

socializing way past what normal people can tolerate (when it’s something I love) is probably my core foundational skill, really.

Jason Dohring Joining Veronica Mars Spinoff | Movie News Guide →

Jason Dohring, one of the stars of “Veronica Mars,” a TV show that aired from 2004 to 2007, has confirmed that he is joining the spinoff series “Play it Again, Dick.” The show, which was confirmed in May 2014, will have Ryan Hansen reprise his “Veronica Mars” role as Dick Casablancas, which means Dohring will also be reprising the role of Logan Echolls. Read on to learn more about “Play It Again, Dick.”

I don’t think this article quite understood the premise of the new show.  Neither will be reprising roles per se.  They’ll both be playing themselves, which is actually way way WAY better.

Oh, I did kill Duncan once. That was fun.

You can’t post things like that without…

AHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA. Seriously. How great would that have been if he’d just full on missed the mat?

Normally, I’m not this hostile toward characters, but I’m very protective of Veronica Mars, and dude was a total asshole to her. At least it would have spared her six months of terrible sex with him in S2.

AMEN!!!

LoVe Appreciation Week: Favorite Romantic Moment

I bought a $49 ticket to Palm Springs. Totally worth it.

I don’t think you can get more romantic that that. They weren’t even dating, it’d been nine years, but he couldn’t wait to see her. Yeah, Logan has money, but that’s not the point. He wanted to do it. He nneded to see her so badly, he couldn’t wait 10 minutes for her to get to baggage claim. I love it. And the way he looks at her? He’s a goner, and you can just see it.

(see also: Jason Dohring is Logan Echolls)

Tough love from Shonda Rhimes to the Dartmouth Class of 2014. In her commencement speech, she addresses the myth of “having it all” but also the great rewards of being a successful woman who is also a devoted mother…

Shonda, how do you do it all?
The answer is this: I don’t.
Whenever you see me somewhere succeeding in one area of my life, that almost certainly means I am failing in another area of my life.
If I am killing it on a Scandal script for work, I am probably missing bath and story time at home. If I am at home sewing my kids’ Halloween costumes, I’m probably blowing off a rewrite I was supposed to turn in. If I am accepting a prestigious award, I am missing my baby’s first swim lesson. If I am at my daughter’s debut in her school musical, I am missing Sandra Oh’s last scene ever being filmed at Grey’s Anatomy. If I am succeeding at one, I am inevitably failing at the other. That is the tradeoff. That is the Faustian bargain one makes with the devil that comes with being a powerful working woman who is also a powerful mother. You never feel a hundred percent OK; you never get your sea legs; you are always a little nauseous. Something is always lost.
Something is always missing.
And yet. I want my daughters to see me and know me as a woman who works. I want that example set for them. I like how proud they are when they come to my offices and know that they come to Shondaland. There is a land and it is named after their mother. In their world, mothers run companies. In their world, mothers own Thursday nights. In their world, mothers work. And I am a better mother for it. The woman I am because I get to run Shondaland, because I get to write all day, because I get to spend my days making things up, that woman is a better person—and a better mother. Because that woman is happy. That woman is fulfilled. That woman is whole. I wouldn’t want them to know the me who didn’t get to do this all day long. I wouldn’t want them to know the me who wasn’t doing.

Logan and Veronica Appreciation Week

Day 5 Favorite Favorite Romantic Moment: if it weren’t for second chances, we’d all be alone

Jul 21

aliaspsy:

I was looking for something to rent from Redbox, and this came up as a suggested movie for me.image

I wasn’t sure what to expect, it only said that it contained four of the creators favorite episodes. So I had to rent it, even though I have all three seasons on DVD. Plus I figured it had to create revenue for Veronica Mars which is never a bad thing these days.

This is what the DVD looks like.

imageMy nine year old has been begging me to let her watch Veronica Mars, but I figured I would wait until I could watch the episodes with her in case she had any questions. So I thought maybe the DVD had a good sampling of episodes leading to the movie. I honestly had no idea what episodes I rented. (Secretly I was hoping that there would be some Rob Thomas narration as to why he chose the episodes.

image

No special features though, as I was about to start, my daughter went out to play, I figured we could watch it later. But I still had to find out what I was going to be watching.

image

So there it was. Three of my favorite episodes, and one that I wish we could’ve had more to. My daughter made it back in the room for The Bitch is Back, so I was answering a lot of questions for her.

But I have to say if I hadn’t already seen Veronica Mars, This DVD would confuse the hell out of me. Nowhere in the menu does it explain what order these episodes are in and it only has a “previously on” with A Trip to the Dentist” But there was nothing extra to explain how they went from Logan smashing in the headlights, to them making out, then to the whole Beaver thing, and then ending with the sex tape scandal.

Overall I think it’s a great idea to get people interested in the show, and possibly generate more viewers for the movie. But I think that there are better ways to do it. When I was renting it, I was happy to see that I had to go into the next town to get a copy, and that people in my town are actually watching Veronica Mars. But in the back of my head I am now wondering if it is any of my friends and do they think I’m crazy for recommending the show to them now?

What do you guys think? You have been Marshmallows for a much longer time than I have been .

Initially I was very excited to see this but after hearing how random it was (and seeing that he didn’t even pick Weapons of Class Destruction - WTF Rob?! - as one of them), it really really looks to me like it’s more than anything a collection for those who are already Marshmallows.

Although who knows, maybe people will see the Pilot, try the next episode on the disc and go, “Wait…I need to know what happened between there and here” and go buy/rent the rest.

Who knows???  That’s the best I can come up with.
