But how naive are you guys? The show's not going to be about Jack OR Gwen. So stop wanking on about Gwenwood, because it's not happening. Nor is Jackwood.

They will be in it a few times. That's it. It's nothing to do with S1-2 or CoE. And no, there's no Alonso. Duh.

You know that thing thay did with JD and Turkleton? It'll be like that. Except with RTD running the show, so no lols like S1 and 2, but gratuitous kiddie snuff porn instead. I'll pass.

Honestly...

I'm sure you're dying for my opinion on the matter, but I seriously don't have one. Feel free to go ask someone who does.

Starz makes Party Down, though, which I am currently watching and which is infinitely more interesting. You should totally be watching that.

Huh.

I went to post a comment somewhere and found I'd been banned from someone's journal. I've never been banned from anyone's journal before, and I quite like the person in question and don't recall ever having had a disagreement with them of any kind. Random defriendings by people who I thought were my actual friends I can deal with, but banning? Wow. Ouch.

Speaking of which, this is kind of where I am at the moment:
  • There's not a lot of joy for me left in Whovian fandom. I'll probably post something later about how much I hated Waters of Mars. I have no desire to watch anything RTD has produced or DT stars in, and I am only just managing to hold on to a scrap of enthusiasm for when Moffat and Smith come in. I hate Russell, I hate everything he's ever written, I think he's awful. His insistence on bringing all this emotional manpain and trauma into these shows that used to just be a joyful experience for me and, in the case of Who, for my kids, has ruined my fannish experience. I want the last three years of my life back, I wish I'd never started watching Torchwood, I wish I'd stopped watching Who. I don't need television that pisses me off and makes me sad, that's not what I watch television for. Fuck you Russell, I hope LA chews you up and spits you out and fucks you in the ass with a pointy stick.

  • Ianto did make me happy for quite a few years, which is why I'm working on a last epic picspam of my favourite teaboy doing shit. I hope to have it done in a week or two.

  • I'm also working on something of a personal project celebrating Torchwood Series One and Two, which I hope to tell you more about in the coming weeks. Or maybe I'll just abandon it.

  • I was hoping to do a Christmas push on the Ianto Jones Wants a Pony campaign, but the Lluest Horse and Pony Trust's continued inability to update me is starting to annoy me a bit, so maybe I'll leave it. After Christmas, I'm done promoting it because I think I've done enough. I'll leave it up, of course.

  • Any takers for [livejournal.com profile] ninja_teaboy may give me shout here or in PM. I'm putting it up for adoption per January 1st. If there's no-one interested, I'll close it down.

  • Oh, in case you were wondering, no. If there is a new series of Torchwood, I won't be watching it, as I don't really like Gwen, or Jack. I liked Tosh and Ianto and I quite enjoyed disliking Owen. I liked Ianto, I liked Tosh, I liked the Hub, the embossed SUV, the pteranodon, the old ladies, the poodles, the victorian lesbianism, the cyberbikinis and that stupid fucking invisible lift. In fact, I loved all those things. Apparently I loved those things far too much. Those things are all gone, so there's nothing for me to come back to. Not that there will be a new series.

  • It's been really fun, people, but if you've friended me for Torchwood content, please, feel free to defriend me in the coming weeks, I won't be offended. I am completely spent. Done. Thanks, Rusty.

Apparently I am the only person on the entirety of the interwebs who did not find the John Barrowman Single Ladies video in any way amusing. This probably says very little about the humorous qualities of said video, and an awful lot about me being a joyless and miserable bitch.

But really, a Single Ladies parody? I'm really happy for you, John and imma let you finish, but Joe Jonas did the best Single Ladies dance of all time. ALL TIME. (Don't YouTube that, I'm lying, it was awful, but then I quite dislike Joe Jonas, which is funny because I have nothing against Nick or Kevin, but Joe just has this thing going on that makes me suspect he was the product of an illicit affair between Mrs Jonas and an evil Greek milkman.)

I feel so alone.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sugarberi for the link. Anyone who'd enjoy listening to JB talk about himself for an hour, click away. Those who wouldn't, skip to ten minutes from the end for "You don't need Ianto you 6 hysterical women, you. I can be Ianto, too! I'm just as good as Ianto, watch it for MEEEE!" "It" being a future series of Torchwood that John sounds very very uncertain about.

ETA: This is my favourite bit: "Come back and watch and see what's going to happen because I know you love Ianto, but I'd like to think and I'd like to hope that part of that relationship was because you also liked what Jack brought to it." What's that, that slutty-boss-fucks-emotionally-vulnerable-employee vibe? Nah, not so much, John. Not so much.

(Also: If Rusty's passive-aggressive dismissals are what pass for "eloquence" in JB's world, I really do feel like he should get out more.)

tencrush: (thud)
Warning: post below may descend into RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION.

Okay, so now that the fuss has died down about JB getting his twig and berries out, what have we actually learned from all this?

First off, let's just all agree that the whole thing, on the scale of BBC things, was a bit of non-incident. Nobody, bar those in the studio, was subjected to JB's peen, because as people have pointed out, it was RADIO, for fuck's sake. Fair enough. Should he have issued an apology? No, he shouldn't. ONE complaint to the BBC does not warrant official apologies, obviously nothing untoward enough happened to cause any sort of outcry, more people probably complain about the shipping forecast that did about this incident, simply because some people have nothing better to do than to listen to and complain about what's on the radio. The DJ's, knowing the current climate, apologised on air for what was obviously just crude behaviour on the part of ALL PARTIES and that should have been the end of it. The apology only served to make the incident into a newsworthy occurence and really, even given the current situation, both the BBC and JB should have more balls than to start issuing official apologies for things that haven't even appeared to offend anybody, but might be construed as possibly being offensive if you squint. Fail on the Beeb there, and on JB, too, let's be honest.

Secondly, though, on the scale of JOHN BARROWMAN THINGS, aside from the outcry, it's just another incident where he got his fucking man meat out and inflicted it on people, and on that level I think wank is fully justified, because, seriously, that spiel is getting SO FUCKING OLD, if it even was funny in the first place, it certainly isn't anymore.

The reason I bring it up again is that in the comments of my previous post something was pointed out to me that riled me up, and I feel it's worth pointing out again. It's this article, and John's justification for getting his todger out all the fucking time, which is, I quote: "I'm a true believer that sex is not dirty, it's not bad, and that we should all lighten up a bit. We're all brought up to think that it's naughty, but it's not. That’s why I get my balls out on set." Oh, for fuck's sake man, what a load of FAIL to stuff into three sentences that is.

I'll just repeat what I said in the comments of that previous post, John's apparent inability to distinguish between NAKED BODIES and SEX is just another one of those failtastic things that make me wish he'd shut the fuck up already, as well as keeping his dick in his pants. Naked bodies are great, and nobody should be ashamed of naked bodies. I should be able to breastfeed my child and let my four-year-old frolic naked on the beach because he likes the fresh air without people immediately associating my bared tits and his frankly hilarious tiny wee winky with FUCKING SEX. Nudity does not equal sex, and it's people's inability to distinguish between the two that makes less confident people than myself uncomfortable about FEEDING THEIR OWN FREAKING CHILD WITH ITS OWN FREAKING FOOD in public. That sort of pathetic justification really makes me angry, because if nothing else, if what you're doing, John, by your own admission, is getting your penis out NOT BECAUSE you're a naturist and think there's nothing wrong with a bit of human flesh (which I would be fine with), BUT BECAUSE YOU WANT PEOPLE TO THINK ABOUT SEX, then there's a term for that and it's called INDECENT EXPOSURE and it will get you arrested. YOUR OWN ADMISSION that you expose your bits to people IN A SEXUAL CONTEXT is precisely what offends people, and it's precisely that context, and people's justified desire to not have SEX rammed down their throats or onto their retinas without their consent, that causes prudish attitudes towards NUDITY in the first place. You've been a very, very lucky man so far that nobody who's been exposed to the Barrowcock has expressed the opinion that they were intimidated by your peen display, but trust me, one of these days, someone will pipe up and say "you know what, I really didn't need to see that and it made me uncomfortable" and when that day comes the Beeb and the press will be fully justified in coming down on you like a ton of bricks for what will at that point justifiably be called sexually agressive behaviour.

So cut your losses now, shut the fuck up, Barrowman, AND PUT IT THE FUCK AWAY.
