Dearest LJ friends - I apologize for the severe lack of updates lately. I am a brand-new teacher, so things have been a bit hectic. However, I'm back! Maybe I'll bring some Fringe love in celebration of the hiatus end next week.

I did, however, change a bunch of my icons b/c I wanted to use some of my new favorites of my fellow iconmakers.

So I've been a little absent from LJ this month, and I apologize. I have a new job, been sick for the past week or so, and have become strangely addicted to tumblr.

With that being said, you all know I had to make icons from 6B - because my crazy shipper heart went, well, crazy.

And since it's Wednesday, I'm not going to put the spoilery ones under a cut

Something a little different today ----

Interesting idea proposed by daylight_broke -
Post your 10 favorite songs, and then try and listen to everyone on your friend lists' suggestions. And... as a music teacher, I'm all for expanding everyone's music knowledge :P

My Top 10 Favorite Songs ...alphabetically, by artist (and they seem to change frequently, lol)

"Don't Stop the Music" - Jamie Cullum (cover)
"Drumming Song" - Florence + the Machine
"Army" - Ben Folds
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough" - Marvin Gaye (cover)
"Falling Slowly" - Glen Hansard (but every cover I've heard is also excellent)
"Beautiful Mess" - Jason Mraz
"Glorious" - Muse
"Resistance" - Muse
"Time is Running Out" - Muse
"Long Live the Queen" - Frank Turner

Hey all - I just joined tumblr - woot.
It's not like I need another thing to waste time, but I'll be putting a couple of my own things up there.

If you're interested - it's/I'm called "Wobbledygook" and you can find/follow me HERE!

And now... I give you my first ever Picspam. Don't be too harsh :P But it DOES go with the rest of the meme.


Favorite character: Olivia Dunham! Of course - she’s the biggest BAMF out there. FBI agent, former marine, kickass aunt, tough-as-nails, escaped the Alt-D.O.D. twice, photographic memory, can probably own anyone at a drinking game, all around best character ever.
Least favorite character: Alt-Brandon. As evil as Walternate is, I can sort of see a bit of his side of things. Alt-Brandon on the other hand is just evil for the sake of being evil. Cutting someone open when they’re awake - who does that?!
Prettiest Character: It’s such a pretty cast, but I’d have to go with Olivia. I also really like Elizabeth Bishop’s hair. For guys, though, I gotta go with Lincoln Lee
Funniest Character: Walter! Peter is funny, but nothing can top something like this:

Now imagine… tonight, you look under your bed, and, lo and behold, you find a monster! And you’re immediately eaten. Now, if you hadn’t looked for the monster, you wouldn’t have found it and you’d still be happy in your beds, instead of being slowly digested in the stomach sack of the creature. But, with any luck, your sister or your brothers might have heard your screams, and your endeavor will serve as a valuable lesson to them.

Character I want to marry: I’ll go with Peter, but more because Peter/Olivia are the way it’s supposed to be
Favorite Ship: Peter/Olivia! I know they’re having hard times now, but it’ll get better
Unpopular Opinion: Ummm… I don’t think my ideas are that far out there. I guess I don’t think it should take a long time for Peter & Olivia to make amends…a couple of episodes, but who knows. I haven’t been disappointed by one thing the writers have done with this show

Ah the 20in20s...
Really I do these to stimulate some icon making. Also - I like making icons of something I might not normally think of.

So today I bring you Wall-E & Inglourious Basterds. I strange combination I know, but both are excellent movies, which I was surprised I hadn't really iconed. There may be a few Wall-E ones from a long time ago, but now ya'll get 20 more.

Not an icon post - just wanted an end-of-the-year meme.
I may start posting a few things like this from time-to-time, and a couple of posts on tv and such. No personal posts or anything of the like - I know you guys haven't friended me for that reason... it's still an icon journal :)

Some slight spoilers

And slight editing to my original list...I totally forgot that the last season of Lost fell in 2010, so I'm going to add a few on here, because I'm a dork

Back in the Day: 5 TV Shows You Loved As A Kid
1. Sabrina, The Teenage Witch
2. Are You Afraid of the Dark
3. Doug
4. Boy Meets World
5. Star Trek: Next Generation

What? No, No, I Don't Watch That...: 5 Guilty Pleasure TV Shows
1. Grey's Anatomy
2. Glee - although I'm liking it less and less
3. American Idol
4. Tosh.0

Hmmm I don't really have a lot of guilty pleasure shows... at least, not in my mind - does that make me elitist?

Wow: 5 TV Moments You Still Remember (And Probably Won't Forget) - from the past year..?
1. The reveal of Olivia being trapped on the other side (Fringe)
2. Rita's death (Dexter)
3. The characters using zombie parts to disguise themselves (Walking Dead)
4. Olivia's speech to Alt-Broyles in Entrada (Fringe)
5. The Bones/Booth moment in the 100th episode.. they were so close! Alas, the writers became a little stupid (Bones)
6. Olivia's speech in the garden at the end of Marionette (Fringe)
...yes I know that was 6 moments, but Fringe is just so darn good
*Edit* 7. Sawyer/Juliet reunion in the sideways world (Lost)
*Edit* 8. Jack's tragic trek through the jungle in The End (Lost)

"Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs": 5 TV Theme Songs You Know (and Love) By Heart - ummm all of them? I'm a musician, so therefore the theme song thing sticks with me - how about my favs
1. The Pacific
2. House
3. Fringe
4. Arrested Development - I learned how to play this on the ukulele!

The Starting Line-Up: 5 Channels You Go To First When You Sit Down to Watch TV

I realize the last 2 are cop-outs - but that's the truth

This Is An Environment of Welcoming, and You Should Just Get the Hell Out Of Here: 5 TV Characters You Could Do Without
1. Hannah (Bones) - please leave... you are a stupid plot device
2. LaGuerta (Dexter) - I know they're never going to write her out of the show, but she is annoying
3. Altlivia (Fringe) - Again, they're not going to write her out... and I actually think her storyline is fascinating, but I just really hate her
4. Foreman (House) - I'm tired of his character, and I miss Cameron. They should keep the team as Chase, 13, and Masters
5. *Edit* Ilana (Lost) - Alas, they did get rid of her, in perfect explosive glory - but I never understood the point of her character in the first place

That's What She Said: 5 Quotes That Still Resonate
1. "Faith is not a disease." - Patient; "No, of course not. On the other hand, it is communicable, and it kills a lot of people." - House (House)
2. "Women cannot resist a man singing show tunes. It's so powerful, even a lot of men can't resist a man singing show tunes." - Andy (The Office)
3. "I'm finding it interesting that I'm only scared of snakes when Booth is around to jump on." - Bones (Bones)
4. "So, I've been thinking about dead cats." - Sweets; "That ... doesn't seem like a good use of your time." - Bones (Bones)
5. "I was a lot like you in high school except my hair was shorter and my guitar was a flute." - Phil (Modern Family)

I'm doing a separate Fringe one for quotes b/c they've been especially fantastic this year.
1. "She tricked my son with her carnal manipulation and he fell right into her vagenda." - Walter
2. "Fine, if you end up breaking the universe, this time it's on your head." - Walter
3. "Well, there are plenty of machines here. I can befriend a vacuum cleaner." - Altlivia
4. "With a basement lab at Harvard Walter was able to open a wormhole into another dimension that essentially shredded all the laws of science. I can't wait to see what he's capable of doing with a multibillion dollar corporation." - Peter
5. "As hospitals go, not bad. - Charlie; "Yeah, unless it's run by an evil genius who is creating accidents to kill people." - Olivia

...yes, you read that subject line correctly.
This is probably my strangest conjunction of fandoms in one post, but it's the only 20in20 icons that I've completed so far.

However, if you happen to be a fan of both Alien AND Harry Potter - then you've finally found a post with both, lol.
