I have always thought One Tree Hill was totally a trashy show. And I have always thought that I adore Nathan/Haley with a huge adoration anyway. Actually, it's the only part of the show I like.

What can I say? If you give me a boy jock (a family from hell is a bonus) and a spunky nerdy girl, I will be helpless....

Of course, they went around mucking the formula by making her a famous pop singer, eventually, but whatever...it all adds to a complete cracktastic awesomeness of it. Did I mention the part where they got married at 17? Heee. At the latest count, they have been married twice and almost divorced twice.

I love it and have no excuses.

I mean...they are so deep:

Oh, I totally have a guilty pleasure. The trashy, trashy, trashy CW warhorse, One Tree Hill.

Specifically, I could take or leave the rest of the characters, but I have a huge thing for Nathan/Haley. A jock bad-boy with a messed up family and a bright, brainy girl is such a total cliche couple, but it's cliche for a reason. It works. They are sweet and adorable and made me watch more horrible episodes than anything else could ;)

If you see this vid and don't think they are adorable, I despair of you. I could take or leave the whole boring love hexagon with Lucas and others, but Nathan/Haley? SQUEE. I don't care how they end the damn show, as long those two are still together at the end.

Yeah, I also finished Majo No Jouken. And it almost finished me. It's a miracle I am still alive.

Final ep thoughts )

And for everyone who doesn't care for either Bollywood or doramas, I bring KITTENS. Because who doesn't like KITTENS?

Cuteness of crazy proportions behind the cut )

And what the hell, since this entry is all over the place, I'll end with a Nathan/Haley kiss from One Tree Hill, as they are the one thing that make me watch that deliciously cheesy show:

I started watching the pilot of The O.C., and why didn't anyone tellme about this before? It's totally frakking fun. It's an utter soap, but such an entertaining one. It reminds me of a much more upscale (and better acted, not that it's hard) One Tree Hill, and we all know how atrociously entertaining I find OTH. Basically, it fixes everything that annoyed me about Dawson's Creek: hot angsty guys? Check. Absence of pretentious, mile-a-minute-narcissist Dawson? Check. Soapy goodness of a plot? Check. No crazy cult wives? Check. (Though I haven't gotten to Marissa yet).

Plus, whoever plays Ryan is very hot. And full of angst. Kinda like a younger Russell Crowe. I like my men with testosterone. Heck, who am I kidding? I just like my men :P

So we shall see how it progresses.

In the latest Veronica Mars fic round-up, I have three fics to recommend: Shuffle (Greatest Hits of 1966), an excellent and unusual post 2.22 story (if you are interested in ships, it's L/V), and The thing about Logan, a wondeful L/V fic that makes me so happy. There is also Bad Boys Break Fast, which is a delightful take on Logan cooking breakfast in 2.22.

Oh, and this morning? Chosen short shot of angst to get me going for the day? An ep from Season 1 of One Tree Hill, the horrid cheesefest that I can't help but be addicted to. CMM annoys the heck out of me, and I think Peyton and Brooke should be tied together and thrown off a boat, but I love me some Nathan/Haley (see Previous picspam and post on them). The show itself might be an evening version of daytime soap (OTH does not even try to transcend the teen genre or stand out the way Buffy or VM or Roswell), but the Nathan/Haley thing is what keeps me watching: they do have genuine chemistry and are awfully sweet together (I haven't seen most of S2, apparently the ship gets really messed with. Netflix is to the rescue, so we shall see). It starts out as a general cliche of a jerky rich jock and a grounded Miss Study but becomes a lot more fun (though no less cliche) as Nathan recieves enough angst for a small elephant and the whole thing is adorable. So I watched the bit where he comes into her roof after almost keeling over and tells her how much she means to him blah blah. Cheese, I love you.

I am reading Tanith Lee's The Gods are Thirsty, a novel about Camille Desmoulins and it's excellent. It has this unique, poetic writing style I love. She switches narrative persons with each chapter yet somehow it works. This has nothing in common with The Silver Metal Lover, the other book of hers I read except for the style. I think I am going to read much much more of her, now. [livejournal.com profile] aliterati, not much on Robespierre so far (Camille does mention something about following him to Hell. I think he means moral Hell as otherwise his chornology doesn't work), but you'd love the bit where he mentioned that Robespierre loved roses, and so Saint-Just used to bring them to him by the armful, "like a young bride."

Because it should be recced, [livejournal.com profile] mimesh, did a humongous Hayden Christensen picspam. Go here.

And I've finished Creezy. It's not bad but it's flawed. Creezy thoughts )

Next movie on the list to watch is Musa: The Warrior, a Korean period action film. I am not sure what it's about but it looks beautiful and stars Zhang Ziyi.

A multitude of Musa pics )

This entry is for Nathan and Haley, the OTP that makes the horror of One Tree Hill almost bearable. Sure, they are not my favorite OTP, or the most well-written, or the angstiest. But there is no OTP that works so hard in making me actually watch the show which I would otherwise stay away from like the plague.

I find John/Aeryn in another universe as far as OTPness if concerned. And Mal/Inara have layers upon layers of unstated emotion in every interaction. But. But. All of those are part of shows that are already great. I mean, I adore my newest OTP, Miaka/Tamahome, but there is plenty I loved in Fushigi Yuugi without them. But without Nathan and Haley, OTH has NOTHING good.

I watched all of S1 (granted, on ff) and part of S2 (on even bigger ff) solely for them, as with each passing episode the other characters made me want to gouge their eyes out with a rusty spike more and more. But it's amazing how fast you can watch a season when you give up even a pretense of caring for most characters and watch them at 50x, with occasional pauses as you realize you ffed too fast and went past a Nathan/Haley scene. Indeed.

Who are they, you ask? In the teenybopper hell of OTH, he is the legitimate half-brother of Lucas Scott (played by the brilliantly wooden Chad Michael Murray whose lack of talent is only matched by his lack of clothing). He is the priveleged son, if your notion of privelege is being brought up by a father who is not only the show's resident twirl-the-mustache villain but also looks like he got plasticised a few years back, and a mother who looks like a former Playboy bunny gone through leathering process. These parents use Nathan as an emotional ping-pong in their labyrinthine wars, and Nathan ends up emancipated (which in OTH terms means 'magically having an amazing apartment on minimum wage') because even though he is 16, he is still about 10 years older than the mental age of his parents. Combined. Poor Nathan has a 'poor little rich boy' thing going as both of his parents are attempted murderers (they engage in a praiseworthy effort to winnow down the cast, but alas, their success is limited).

Haley is the best friend of the Wooden Lucas, but except for her lamentable taste in friends, she is a remarkably well-adjusted academic achiever in funny hats. Think Willow only cuter and with much less brain and personality. She ends up tutoring Nathan (the boy is cute but not that bright. I bet his mother overtanned when he was in the womb), who starts flirting with her as an obscure and complicated attempt to get back at his half-brother to whom he is mean early in the show (probably because he resents CMM getting top billing).

Of course, since this is the very beginning of the show, Nathan gains angst, niceness, lack of money, and Twu Wuv in the process. He transforms into an adorable boyfriend. This probably causes his former girlfriend Peyton, the equally wooden crush of Lucas, to wonder why she couldn't get him housebroken earlier. Answer: she did not have funny hats.

Nathan also becomes the world's youngest husband, when in a severely WTF moment, he and Haley get married at the grand old age of 16. With the permission and blessing of Haley's crazy hippie freaky parents, who let their youngest child get hitched to an unemployed high school boyfriend they barely know and then blithely step out of town forever. Leaving Nathan and Haley to cope with marriage, bills, and Haley's sudden and inexplicable ability to go on a nation-wide concert tour. Indeed.

By the age of 17, Nathan and Haley are also about to become the world's youngest divorced couple (can you imagine what a sexy pick up line this will be when Nathan is in college: "Hiya Honey! I am 18 and have already been divorced!") due to the Plot Contrivances Of Doom. But since their love is "always and forever" (tm) they are overcoming the almost-divorce though sexing and angsting and glances which make [livejournal.com profile] dangermousie very happy. After all it's not every ship that can survive such horrendously bad writing in such a horrendously bad show through sheer chemistry and sweetness.

This line is from the best book I've read this year, Rupert Holmes' Where the Truth Lies. Felt like using it.

This is going to be a big grab-bag of a post because I am going away for a vacation and won't be back until the beginning of January. Happy (early) Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, New Year or any other holiday of choice to those who celebrate! If you'll allow me to be sappy for a moment, last year, I knew only two people on my friends' list ([livejournal.com profile] aliterati and [livejournal.com profile] katranna) because I didn't even have an lj. And this year I got to meet all of you really fun, interesting, clever people through lj. Yeah, it's mushy, but reading my friends' list makes me happy way too often to mention. So thank you.

1. You know this period of time when you know that you can't save yourself from falling and the best you can do is try to twist in such a way so your bruise won't be too bad, but you haven't yet hit the ground? Time really does slow down, or more accurately, you become much more aware of each instant. Unfortunately, what you are aware of is frustration and anticipation of pain. Yuck. Yes, for future reference to self, watch out for ice on the sidewalks.

2. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. It's out now. Go see it. Go see it even if you have to rob a bank to do it. It's a film noir homage and parody that I fell madly in love with and which is in my Top 5 of the year. It's post-modern and it's old-fashioned. It's intelligent, twisty, funny, witty as hell and surprisingly tender and romantic. Any absence of marketing on this movie is a crime. And no matter how outrageous or clever it gets, you never really feel the shellacked indifference to violence of a Tarantino movie, primarily because of the look in Harry's eyes (Harry is played by Robert Downey Jr who should stay off drugs, please, because I love him.) Oh, and Val Kilmer is the coolest gay private detective ever. The Flick Filosopher [sic] said it better than I can in her review here. Why are you still reading this? Go buy a ticket!

3. I know in Smallville the smooshed term "Clexana" refers to the Clark/Lex/Lana triangle (barf) but every time I see it, I think it refers to menage-a-trois instead, and it suddenly becomes a heck of a lot more interesting, especially since I have a hilarious picture in my head of Lana horrifiedly realizing that the boys are sort of more interested in each other and abandoned her to fend for herself while they get it on...heeee.

This line is from the best book I've read this year, Rupert Holmes' Where the Truth Lies. Felt like using it.

This is going to be a big grab-bag of a post because I am going away for a vacation and won't be back until the beginning of January. Happy (early) Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, New Year or any other holiday of choice to those who celebrate! If you'll allow me to be sappy for a moment, last year, I knew only two people on my friends' list ([livejournal.com profile] aliterati and [livejournal.com profile] katranna) because I didn't even have an lj. And this year I got to meet all of you really fun, interesting, clever people through lj. Yeah, it's mushy, but reading my friends' list makes me happy way too often to mention. So thank you.

1. You know this period of time when you know that you can't save yourself from falling and the best you can do is try to twist in such a way so your bruise won't be too bad, but you haven't yet hit the ground? Time really does slow down, or more accurately, you become much more aware of each instant. Unfortunately, what you are aware of is frustration and anticipation of pain. Yuck. Yes, for future reference to self, watch out for ice on the sidewalks.

2. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. It's out now. Go see it. Go see it even if you have to rob a bank to do it. It's a film noir homage and parody that I fell madly in love with and which is in my Top 5 of the year. It's post-modern and it's old-fashioned. It's intelligent, twisty, funny, witty as hell and surprisingly tender and romantic. Any absence of marketing on this movie is a crime. And no matter how outrageous or clever it gets, you never really feel the shellacked indifference to violence of a Tarantino movie, primarily because of the look in Harry's eyes (Harry is played by Robert Downey Jr who should stay off drugs, please, because I love him.) Oh, and Val Kilmer is the coolest gay private detective ever. The Flick Filosopher [sic] said it better than I can in her review here. Why are you still reading this? Go buy a ticket!
