ugh

if you feel like watching the promos to past seasons. they're good for creys.Collapse )
House will never ever ever ever not make me depressed. this is seriously, fact.
watching the season opener promos of past seasons vs this season. it's just depressing. I mean really, every other year, every other season, there's hope, there's this, feeling, like it's hard to describe, but underneath it all there's hope. and this one just makes me depressed. I have no intention of watching this season, but i'm sure i'll watch more than a few episodes, but i just wish i could think about this show and not have it feel like a waste of time. 

The season 6 promo has sooooo many parallels to the season 8 promo it's unsane. Except one glaring difference, I have empathy and hope for House in season 6, I have apathy for season 8. i miss my House, I miss my show.


House MD: steaming pile of shit

but to be honest. i feel free.
i feel like i can breathe.
i'm not tied down by House anymore [or for the moment]
i'm gonna miss lj but i don't know that i'm going to miss House.
I DEFINITELY have thoughts on this, but for now, i'm going to enjoy my freedom and go get some froyo! :)
Am I upset because LE will not be in season 8? ABSOLUTELY.
Will I watch Season 8? probably, but not regularly, and probably only the finale will be watched live.
Did I have a panic attack at work when I read the twitter update on my phone? Yes, yes I did.
Do I understand why she did it? YES! and more power to you girlfriend. continually fighting for what is right. and that is why i love her.
Do I agree with her decision? yes and no.

Lets be real here, there is a huge gaping chasm between deserves and will get.
Lisa deserves to be the lead on a show, or be featured more prominently in movies and media in general. But will she get that?
realistically, probably not.
I mean, TV is great, but if you're a TV actor/ress it is almost impossible to jump to the big screen or another TV show.
In my opinion three things have to have happened for that to occur:

1. You can't occupy a role for more than 4 or so years, any longer than this and it is nearly impossible to shed the character from people's mental association. George Clooney is George fucking Clooney but he still gets called Dr. Ross. No one from Seinfeld or Friends has been able to shed their characters other than (Courtney Cox and Julia Louis Dryfuss, now think about how long it took them to do so and how many failed projects lie in the wake before their success).
Alec Baldwin, or rather Jack Donoghy (sp?) said it best on 30 Rock, "Do TV and no one will ever take you seriously again. It doesn't matter how big a movie star you are, even if you had the kind of career where you walked away from a blockbuster franchise or worked with Meryl Streep or Anthony Hopkins, made important movies about things like civil rights or Pearl Harbor, stole films with supporting roles and then turned around and blew them away on Broadway. None of that will matter once you do television. You can win every award in sight. You can be the biggest thing on the small screen, and you'll still get laughed out of the Vanity Fair Oscar party by Greg Kinnear. Tracy, your career hit rock bottom the first time you decided to do 'TGS.' You want it to hit rock bottom again, go on network television."

2. Your show has to have been on cable, because if it's on cable it's more reputable. If it's on Network TV then it's Network Television, see point 1.
For example Eddie Falco could shit on a rug and have taped for cable and she and it would get all the emmys.
Same thing for Jon Hamm and Laura Linney.

3. You have to be fucking great, and you have to be perceived that way as well.
Lisa Edelstein is amazing, but she doesn't get the recognition she deserves from people in the industry. And if you don't have that going for you, then your fucked.

So, that is why I think Lisa leaving House M.D. is a bad decision career wise.
In addition to that, she's over 40. There aren't too many roles for women over 40 in this industry. Seriously, look around. Is that right? OF COURSE NOT. But it's a fact. So when Lisa says she's going to be doing some producing stuff, I hope that a. she actually gets to produce and get her stuff shown, SO many actors go behind the camera and either fail or their stuff fails, people who have managed to do it and succeed are a lot more rare than the ones who fail. and b. that if her stuff does get made that she'll be able to not only open up more roles for women over 40 but really be able to showcase her talents in ways that she wasn't previously able to.

YOU KNOW WHAT ALSO IS FUCKED? THE MEDIA.
FFS, There was an article titled "Move over, Tina Fey! 'Bridesmaids' catapults Kristen Wiig from 'SNL' star to Hollywood triple threat!" REALLY?? REALLY?? REALLY??
there is only room for one of those funny ladies in the media?? REALLY?
CAUSE HEAVEN FORBID THERE BE MORE THAN ONE WOMAN WHO CAN MAKE YOU LAUGH.
NO. THIS IS A MAN’S WORLD AND ONLY MEN ARE ALLOWED TO BE FUNNY. CAUSE IF THEY DON’T HAVE A PENIS WHAT’S THE FUCKING POINT? WHO WANTS TO HEAR WOMEN TALK AND BE SMART AND FUNNY, ALL I WANT FROM THEM IS TO LOOK PRETTY SO I CAN STICK MY WEINER IN THEM AND IF THEY TALK IT RUINS IT. AND ALSO CAUSE IF THERE ARE TOO MANY WOMEN SETTING POSITIVE EXAMPLES OF WHAT WOMEN *CAN* ACHIEVE… WHO WILL STRIP FOR US WITH GLITTER RAINING ON US???? WOMEN NEED TO KNOW THAT THERE IS ONLY A SMALL WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY FOR SUCCESS IN THIS INDUSTRY (AND EVERY OTHER INDUSTRY) AND THAT THEY ARE PROBABLY NOT GOOD ENOUGH AND THAT WAY THEY CAN GO BACK TO DOING WHAT THEY DO BEST, BEING AROUND TO SERVE MEN. OH JUST KIDDING, THAT’S JUST HOUSE M.D.’S VIEW OF WOMEN. -_- for serious though, it’s House’s and the Media’s.

THE FACT THAT THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING SUCH AS A BECHDEL TEST AND THAT IT HAS TO EXIST AND THAT MOVIES STILL FAIL IT, ASTOUNDS ME.

THE FACT THAT IT IS STILL *REVOLUTIONARY* WHEN A WOMAN IS FUNNY, FOR FUCKS SAKE, I'M DONE.

BASICALLY I LOVE LISA EDELSTEIN, FOR TOO MANY REASONS. LEAST OF ALL HER ACTING AND I THINK SHE'S FUCKING BRILLIANT.

I WISH HER ALL THE BEST, I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT SHE HAS IN STORE FOR US AND I HOPE AND PRAY THAT SOMEONE AS INTELLIGENT AND THOUGHT PROVOKING AS HER GETS HER STUFF MADE.
ESPECIALLY THE DARK, TWISTED, HUMOROUS STUFF THAT I LOVE FROM HER.

/RANT.
 HI LOVELIES!
It's been a while since my last Update I plan on doing a personal one after this. 

follow the cut for my thoughts on House, and I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOURS AS WELL. 
House loves Bon Iver and I love that fact ...and both of those things. Collapse )

my friends are hilarious.

this is like a year old but you guys. just watch it. they're sooooo goobery.

Tina Fey

So I went to this tonight.
Tina Fey signed my book, everything was super rushed and i was in front of her for maybe 30seconds; but I managed to get out a "thank you, I hope you have a good night." she said, "you too." and smiled at me. I could have died. TINA freaking FEY. MAH HERO. 
as is every celebrity that was ever on tv, she is shorter, skinnier, and just as flawless in person.  
i was a tad disappointed with the format. It was mostly just steve martin asking Tina to recount stories she told in the book, which i had already read. I was hoping it would be more of a back and forth and less of an interview, but it was still amazing and made me laugh soooooo much. 

TOMORROW NIGHT: i see Paul mother fucking Simon in concert, shittiest seats possible at the pantages. but still. 

2 Weeks: The Dalai Lama.

I IS EXCITE. :)))))

Apr. 18th, 2011

This show is utterly unwatchable.
I seriously have never cared for Masters and am super glad she's gone.
BUT I YELLED, AT MY SCREEN, I YELLED "NOOOOOOO. NO. NO. NO. NO. " when they played her out to YCAGWYW. That is the bullshit. I disapprove so greatly.


You guys, I have but one solitary wish for this show. ALL, ALL that I ask from it, is that it plays out to the tune of "you can't always get what you want".
I HAVE NO OTHER REQUESTS. House can fall in love with Dominika, he can die, he can adopt rachel because cuddy dies. I DO NOT CARE WHAT THEY DO TO THE SHOW, TOO MUCH DAMAGE HAS HAPPENED FOR ME TO REALLY CARE. 
ALL I WANT IS THE LAST SHOT OF THE SERIES TO BE PLAYED OUT TO YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT.

i am all about the bookends. it is my favorite S&G album, it is my only wish for this show, to close how it began, with a rolling stones song that would be the theme of the series. 

MASTERS DOES NOT GET YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT. 
WE KNEW HER FOR HALF A SEASON. SHE DOES NOT GET THIS SONG.
She is not Amber. She is not Kutner. She was bland and forgettable. She does not get this song. 
NOW IT TAKES AWAY FROM THE POIGNANCY THAT THAT SONG WOULD HAVE HAD. BECAUSE GRAHHHAL;SDKJFA;LSKJDF;ALJKSDF


GOING TO GO WATCH THE GOOD WIFE AND DROWN MY HOUSE RELATED SORROWS IN THIS SHOW. 
KTHANXBAI.


FML. 
i don't want to care about House anymore, I want to be done. The show is slowly killing me, because it has been slowly dying. 
"and i never felt so wicked as when i willed our love to die."
YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS. YOU GUYS.

I'M SO FUCKING OVER HOUSE. THIS SHOW SUCKS SO HARD. I'M SO MAD. THIS HIATUS HAS GIVEN ME SO MUCH PERSPECTIVE, AND NOT THE GOOD KIND. 

back story: during the hiatus, i watched all of Parks and Rec, IT IS SOOOO GOOD, GO WATCH IT NOW. season 1 is okay to pretty good. SEASON 2 & 3: it found it's voice and it's sooo good.
-I also started the good wife about 2 hours ago, flist, THIS IS THE NEW HOUSE. The 2 episodes I've seen remind me so much of how amazing House used to be.  Basically during the hiatus, I got stuff done in my life, I went to the gym more, I watched other shows, good shows that show me just how bad House has gotten. 

THE ACTUAL EPISODE:

POTW:
WHAT. WAS. THIS. SHIT. are you kidding me? 1. it wasn't interesting in the least. 2. THE WIFE IS A FUCKING HOARDER AND THE GUY STICKS AROUND FOR YEARS AND SHE'S SERIOUSLY MENTALLY UNSTABLE, AND THE TIME WHEN THE HUSBAND, WHO MAY I REMIND YOU LIVED IN LITERALLY PILES OF SHIT FOR YEARS, ONLY LEFT WHEN HE FOUND OUT THAT HIS WIFE HID MISCARRIAGES???? ALSO, HE SAW THE ~BEAUTY~ IN HER MENTAL ILLNESS????????? THAT'S LIKE ME SAYING, "YOU KNOW, I REALIZE THAT MY BROTHER WHO IS SCHIZOPHRENIC IS A BAD THING, BUT HE HEARS VOICES IN HIS HEAD, SOMETIMES I SEE THE AWESOMENESS IN THAT, THERE ARE PEOPLE TALKING TO HIM ALL THE TIME, IT'S LIKE HE'S NEVER WITHOUT FRIENDS, ISN'T THAT PRECIOUS :'). MEANWHILE, HE'S KILLED 3 PEOPLE CAUSE THE VOICES HAVE TOLD HIM TO. -_-
WHAT THE FUCK. 

TAUB AND HIS WIFE:
I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO FUCKING VALIDATE THIS, EXCEPT BY SAYING: NO ONE CARES. jesus.

13 & House:
literally the ONLY redeeming part of this episode. but i can't even take any of this seriously because House is back on vicodin, although did i see him pop one pill during this episode? i don't know. but if i wanted to see House's personality reset and him back on vicodin, i would watch seasons 1-4 when the POTW's were interesting, and the other interactions were good too, not this steaming pile of crap they've been giving us since, lets be real, season 5ish. 
13's confession was interesting, i liked her reason for leaving, but i know she's only staying temporarily so that olivia can have a career. and there is so much to do with House's fucked up ness and they DON'T DO ANYTHING WITH IT. they just let it sit and stagnate and it's grown flies and sucks now, when it should be a flowing river of awesomeness. 

you guys, i'm so close to not coming back to this show. I want to quit it so bad. I WANT TO QUIT SO BAD. I've just invested wayyyy too much time and energy and emotion on it. I don't know, like the show runners, if i'll be back next season. 

one of the only things keeping me coming back was the house/cuddy *relationship* and i don't even mean BF/GF one, i just meant their interactions, when they were interesting and sexy and smart. not childish suckfests. 

i think this is the nicest thing that TPTB have ever said about us, "I have to accept the fact that I’m not going to please everybody, but I have to also accept that these people aren’t idiots, and opinions are quite often valid."

WE AREN'T IDIOTS YOU GUYS. I COULD CRY. :')       -_-

I'm sorry this is so negative. I've just been given a lot of perspective, and I hold the show to higher standards and as someone who is increasingly busy, if i'm going to spend 40 minutes of my time watching a show, I at least want it to be good. I've felt the shows decline for so long now, but i denied myself feeling those feelings because I wanted it to be good. but the breakup and the way they handled the relationship, and ESPECIALLY how yaitanes and shore and everyone is treating the fans, acting egomaniacal and apathetic all at once, it's realllllllyyyyy put me off. I hope they pull of something brilliant for the end.
