there was this one exchange pride had with agent boyd (apparently they ere in training together) that i found interesting.

(about some exercise or training situation)
her: "you cheated."
him: "i improvised."

so does that mean that pride "pulled a kirk" & changed a no-win scenario to one that he could win?

also; scott bakula looks thinner, especially in the face. it must be that vegan diet he's doing now.

inspired by things seen on tumblr

the students (& maybe a teacher) make fun of you because you're wearing blue and they are wearing green.

the next day the students (& maybe a teacher) make fun of you because you're wearing green & they are wearing blue.

you have a quiz today, you had a quiz yesterday. you will have a quiz tomorrow.

today is supposed to be pizza day, but the cafeteria lady insists yesterday  was pizza day. pizza day is fluid.

taco day, however, is a fixed construct.

there is never anyone in the library. until a teacher insists people do a report on outer mongolia. then everyone is in the library.

the bathrooms all smell like smoke & have a permanent haze. even though no one has smoked in them since 1986.

there's this thing going around tumblr lately about how weird/strange/scary we humans might seem to aliens species. now there is a whole tumblr dedicated to that idea [ profile] humans-are-seriously-weird. it got me to thinking about weird stuff we humans do.

we eat the craziest things; hot peppers, things fried in fat, poison fish, fish that has been left to rot for a long time, fungus & berries that grow in thorny bushes. we eat things in weird combinations that gross out some people and fascinate others.
some people are very picky about what they eat. some won't eat foods with certain textures, or will only eat foods of a certain color. the aliens understand food allergies, or rather allergies in general (some species refuse to land in any country where it's currently pollen season.)

that things that we do for fun or recreation would confuse most aliens; racing motor vehicles of various kids around at high speeds, running, swimming or riding a bike over long distances & sometimes rough terrain. we shoot projectile weapons at targets. some humans jump out of perfectly good flying machines with nothing more than (what looks to the aliens) like a large bed sheet to slow them down before they hit the ground.
others jump off of bridges with a giant elastic band attached to their ankles. still others walk along a wire high off of the ground & some didn't think that was challenging enough, so they made a line that goes slack when you walk on it and put that high up. bad enough it's slack, but people jump & flip on it too.

aliens just don't get it. why in the name of everything that is decent & holy in this galaxy would you put hot sauce in someone's milkshake or in their shampoo? or fill their 4-wheeled motor vehicle with golf-balls? or put a bucket of water over a door so it pours down on someone's head? or convince them they won a a multi-million dollar lottery when they didn't?
the human committee that's in charge of alien/human relations prays daily that one of these idiots won't get the idea to put a whoopee cushion on the leader of the alien exploratory teams' chair or replaces their cup with a dribble one & creates an interstellar incident.

1. that whole: "yes, brody leaving was out of nowhere, but we will get over it." was totally directed at the fans.

2. percy touring civil war sites seems to be a nod to the actress being in a few episodes of a civil war era show: mercy street. (i think is said in a previous post that she was in underground, but i was mistaken)

3. pride's bête noire has the last name of hamilton, so someone besides me must be thinking of some sort of NCIS: NOLA/hamilton fusion-thing. (even though i know little about the hamilton musical) despite the fact that this hamilton might just turn out to be a big, bad guy some day.

watched back to the future for like the 50th time last night & something occurred to me. people on-line wonder why marty's parents didn't recognize him as the guy that helped them get together. well, by the time he started looking like he did at 17 nearly 30 years had gone by & memory plays tricks on you.
lorraine remembers calvin/marty as being like some movie star. taller with wavy dark hair & brilliant blue eyes.
george remembers him as being a bit of nerd. shorter with mousy brown hair and either green or hazel eyes.
sometimes they recognize a gesture or tone of voice of marty's, but just chalk that up to some sort of family resemblance.

marty not only has to deal with change in the town (twin pines mall becoming lone pine mall for example) but changes in his family. his brother dave works in some sort of office & his sister linda works in a boutique. marty's wanting to be a rock star is somewhat of a disappointment, but his parents figure if it makes him happy they'll support him.
and other things like he remembers that the clown that came for his brother's 9th birthday was drunk. but now the event was a magician who's exploding smoke effect scared one of the girls at the party so much that she cried.
marty remembers that the summer he turned 12 the family went on a camping trip & they all got food poisoning from a roadside food stand. but now the event is that they went to disneyland, but it rained most of the time they were there.
even his meeting of jennifer is different. instead of meeting during the first day of high school when the strap of her hand-me-down book-bag broke in front of him, the event is now that they met a week later when she tripped & dropped her lunch tray by his table in the cafeteria.

marty learns very quickly not to bring up past memories beyond the day he came back to his own time. if anyone starts reminiscing he waits to see if it matches with what he recalls before joining in, if it doesn't he kind of nods along & pretends that he remembers the same.

if pride's middle name of cassius has anything to to with gaius cassius longius does that mean that hamilition, overly ambitious politician, the mayor of new orleans & pride's bête noire, is supposed to be julius caesar?
i know it comes from the character's father, but he had the name first before they had that fact.

the things that come into one's head while trying to sleep.

there's an internet joke of sorts that the four big actors at this time named chris (evans, hemsworth, pine & pratt) get together to make a movie, directed by christopher nolan. but why stop there?

it should be written & produced by chris columbus with christina ricci, christina hendricks, & christine taylor as the female leads that hold the key to stopping the bad guys.

christopher walken, christopher lambert, & christopher plummer as the bad guys.

and the following have cameos or bit parts;
chris rock, christine baranski, christine lahti, christian slater, chris tucker

ETA: the soundtrack includes songs from christina aguilera, chris martin, & chris daughtry

and at some point someone makes a reference to the Fantastic Four, at which point the camera cuts to evans (who was johnny storm) who makes an annoyed face.

i saw some stuff about the disney movie atlantis: the lost empire on tumblr & it got me to thinking about some sort of stargate: sg-1/ A:TLE fusion (i think that's the right word) although i'm sure i'm not the first.

daniel as the linguist and cartographer
ba'al as the the leader of the band of mercenaries
vala as his second-in-command
mitchell as the demolitions expert
janet (or maybe dr. lam) as the expedition's doctor
sam as the mechanic
jack as the sarcastic radio operator
hammond (or landry) as an eccentric millionaire who funds the expedition
jonas quin as the expedition's cook
maybourne as the very odd geologist
sha're as the princess of atlantis
kasuf as the king of atlantis

with ra's al ghul often mentioning that he's lived for over 600 years you could have an animated series called the lives of ra's al ghul. 

most episodes could start with some situation that reminds him of something in the past & the flashback starts with him narrating. maybe the overall series plot could be him searching for some artifact he had but somehow lost or stolen from him. with an occasional appearance by batman.

so now that small spoiler ) i'd like to update my fan vid ideas list to include one for NCIS: NOLA with the full version of the song used for the cheer's theme. you probably didn't know there was a longer version, did you? well, there is.

some time ago [ profile] lemonlye had a post about what perfume the greek gods would wear, inspired by a couple of books she wrote & her interest in perfume.

for whatever reason my weird brainTM had some suggestions:

hades--earthy or dirt, incense & embalming herbs
persephone--pomegranate & fresh blooming things like apple blossoms
hermes--something fresh-smelling, like the wind. like white musk & pear
hectate--herbs, possibly woods or bark
dionysos--wine, beeswax candles & maybe dragon's blood resin
aphrodite--honey, musk & maybe roses
poseidon and amphitrite--sea moss or tropical ferns & coral

or my weird brain strikes again.

i often have crazy ideas for fan vids when i listen to certain songs.
note: all of these are available for “adoption.” credit for the idea (and a link to the finished product) would be nice. also, if you know know of any vids already done like this please let me know in the comments.

specific ideas

tik tok by kesha an all star trek (not the new stuff) or stargate: sg-1 vid would work with this. also could an NCIS: NOLA vid. i think i saw a short sg-1 vid done to this.

blow by kesha, we r we r are by kesha, last friday night by katy perry for an all trek (not the new stuff) or stargate: sg-1 vid

i wish i was james bond by scouting for girls NCIS: NOLA. agent pride wishes he was bond. use could be made of clips of past scott bakula roles with bond stuff like women & guns.

high school never ends by bowling for soup an all trek vid (not the new stuff)

we are never getting back together by taylor swift an sg-1 one. jack & sam break up. again. he wants to get back together, she doesn’t.

E.T. by katy perry (without the kanye west part) an all trek vid (not the new stuff) human/alien love. i suggest starting with the “i’ve always wanted to make love with an alien.” scene from first contact (the TNG episode) and end with the mess hall/"how you would endure" scene from a matter of honor (TNG) as is without the suggested music playing over them.

the full version of the song used for the cheer's theme NCIS: NOLA or star trek: DS9, because everyone goes to quark's bar.

flash gordon by queen star trek: voyager, the captain proton episodes are tailor made for this.

a golden girls vid set to you got a friend in me by randy newman

less specific ideas

a series of vids with the star trek series as if they were big screen comedy movies, like stargate: sg-1 [the movie] theatrical trailer by doubletreble1518

some sort of mash up vid with stargate: sg1, star trek (not the new stuff) or NCIS: NOLA with the audio for a movie trailer like the Stargate: Inception Trailer [HD] by doubletreble1518

something for the quest (2014) maybe with the the pirate of the caribbean theme.

some sort of ghost adventures vid. don’t know what song would be good. ghostbusters seems like an obvious choice, but not quite right IMHO. beside, i try to avoid going for the obvious.

on this post over at [ profile] daytonward he asked for people to suggest what tie-in novel series they'd like to see him write. my wierd brain came up with this:
maybe quantum leap?
and i just thought of this; he leaps into someone who works on the set of star trek: the original series (none of the big name actors, maybe an extra or one of the behind the scenes crew.) i haven’t decided if this is cool or crazy.

but my weird brain wasn't done.
and i just thought of his mission:
lenard nimoy quits the show after the second season (if i recall, this was a possibility in real life) his replacement helps revitalize the program and the show becomes a favorite with the network brass. the series goes on for 5 or 6 years, but is never popular in syndication. incidentally nimoy goes on to have a a fairly successful career as a stage actor and art photographer. the rest of the cast have varying success in-front or behind the camera.
after the success of the star wars movies paramount tries to cash-in on this by putting out a star trek film. it’s lack-luster box office performance & luke-warm reviews derail any possible sequels. therefore; no other movies, no TAS, TNG, DS9, VOY or ENT, and just the bantam episode adaptations novels.
so sam must convince nimoy to stay in the role of spock, possibly by giving him hints of the future & how much the show will mean to millions of people.

suggested by this post over at [personal profile] rydra_wong's and since i'm watching the amazing race, i'm doing that.

since they go to countries on all contents, i'll do one for each.

ETA: these are all from BPAL.

ETA2: i've never tried any of these, i'm just going by descriptions.

in this dream i was watching the long-awaited QL movie. it was on tv, but i don't know if it was tv movie or just being shown on tv. it's wasn't very good. the first part dragged on for a long time. sam had leaped into some guy who wasn't very nice & may have been a criminal. his wife was cheating on him. al wasn't the hologram, it was some guy who looked like he was a history teacher or something. the hand link to ziggy was some big, clunky thing.
the second part had sam leap into the future. but it's the future like they imagined in the 1980s or something, where it's the year 2022 & for some reason everything is is different kinds of white & grey and everyone is dressed in the same kind of clothes. al was the hologram this time & sam's brother was missing. other than that, i don't know what was going on.

i haven't been that disappointed in something i have waited years to see since the star wars prequels. even if it was just something my brain randomly generated.

archersangel: (reality?)
i mentioned before about my stargate: sg-1 hat getting a comment, well it happened again. this time i was standing in the check-out line at wal-mart & the guy in line ahead of me pointed at the hat & sai: "hey! i watched that movie years ago." i didn't want to get into how sg-1 is different than the movie, so i just said something like. "oh. ok." and went back to reading my book. (i occasionally carry a book to read while standing in line.)

that book was the first one in the romulan war series (star trek: enterprise) & it had this line: "....the ghosts of old sweat mingled with leather, incense, and the coppery tinge of blood, along with vague notes of freshly turned earth and lilac...." so of course my weird brain thought it might make an interesting BPAL scent.

in my previous entry i complained about coke putting names on their 20oz bottles as part of their share a coke thing. but today i was secretly amused to find one labeled "daniel." which of course i bought, because i wouldn't mind sharing a coke (among other things) with daniel jackson.
archersangel: (life sucks)
yesterday i posted imaginary black phoenix alchemy lab (BPAL) scents. in yet another installment of my weird brain, i bring you possible scents named after famous queens.

note: i don't know if these notes will work together, i'm just playing around.

cleopatra might be lotus-golden, (or just lotus) musk-egyptian & almond. [in a perfect world this would layer (is that the term?) with antony, which is an actual scent they have, or the fictional julius caesar i came up with.]

boudicca might be leather, dragon’s blood & oak. (or maybe elm-english)

victoria of england (they already have an unrelated victoria) might be rosewood, black tea & honey.

i hope my brain is done with this now.

archersangel: (insane)
[personal profile] synecdochic's posts on black phoenix alchemy lab (BPAL) has got me thinking: "this is interesting." even though i'm allergic to most perfume/cologne. (although it could just be artificial stuff, but 1. i can't take that chance & 2. the people i spend a lot of time with don't like perfume/cologne)

anyway; i've been thinking about what kind of scents i'd come up with. (further proof, if you need it, of my weird brain)

note: i don't know if the notes (or whatever they are called) will work together, i'm just playing around.

i was thinking there could scents named after well-known roman emperors.
caligula (what does madness smell like anyway?) might be dragon's blood, wine & incense.
nero might be smoke, (a good part of rome burned during his reign), parchment (he considered himself an actor & poet), & cypress.
julius caesar might be leather, steel & grass (he spent a great deal of time out on campaigns).

then (for some reason) i was thinking about the main characters from the amelia peabody series by elizabeth peters;
emerson might be tobacco-pipe (he often smoked one), dusty (or dirty) & musk
amelia might be whiskey (her drink was whiskey & soda), books-old & ivy-english
their son ramses might be beer (or possibly rum), sandalwood & myrrh
their ward nefret might be rose-english, tea & linen

ETA: just found out they did a nero & also an unreleased caligula. both were different than what i came up with.
archersangel: (weird quiet girl)
[ profile] kradical posted a link to a post were someone made covers of well-known books with just one letter missing from the title. apparently it's twitter thing.
so i decided to go though my long list of books that i've read over the years (limited to a few categories. not everything) to see if i could come up with anything amusing.

star trek novels (all series) )

star wars & quantum leap )

mysteries by braun, brown, douglas, macleod & peters )

bond novels, indinan jones novels, people of the.... (first north americans) & sg:1 novels )
