I watched the latest episode of United States of Tara earlier this evening, and subsequently sobbed hysterically for a good ten-fifteen minutes.

SOBBED. )

United States of Tara has been cancelled.

US of T is an amazing show with excellent writing, compelling characters, and a moving, intriguing story line. Diablo Cody was the mastermind behind this show, and the characters she created were dynamic; strong, intelligent women with ambition, passion and investment for something besides a man.

It's an absolute travesty that this show is ending now. It was just getting really good. We discovered some major stuff this season; information on why Tara has Dissociative Identity Disorder. We were going somewhere really interesting with Moosh, too, and with Kate and Max and Charmaine and Nate. I was fucking miserable when I heard this news last night, and I don't feel any better about it with a night's sleep.

This show was so fucking good! And while crappy-ass television shows like Jersey Shore, Two and A Half Men, and the ridiculous number of CSI and Law & Order versions continue to be picked up despite terrible writing and plainly awful concepts, a unique show has been axed. I know television is all about ratings and money, and shows like Jersey Shore and CSI garner those things (for reasons that utterly escape me, but whatever). But it's just such a fucking shame that truly amazing television shows like Firefly, Dollhouse, My So-Called Life, Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me, Veronica Mars, Arrested Development, and now United States of Tara will never get the continuations they so veritably deserve.

FIC!

Oh fuck, I've been so bad about posting lately. Although, tbh, I'm not sure that's a problem considering I don't really have anything interesting to say most of the time! But yeah, I do want to type up where my brain's these days. SO!

+I am so FUCKING stoked for April 12th to arrive. That's when the Adam Little Black Dress fics will start being posted, and some (read: most) of my favourite AI authors are participating! I cannot wait to read the awesome fic that is sure to come out of this.

+I am also FUCKING stoked about Adam being on American Idol next week, not just to perform but to mentor the current AI folks. I haven't been watching this season - mostly because I pretty never watch the show in general - but I have heard that it's been kinda less-than-stellar. There's been, from what I can tell, some controversy over this decision because Adam is just emerging as a performer and there have been other people from Idol (people who actually won it) who could provide some great advice as well. Here's how I see it, though:

1) It'll boost the ratings. Adam'll totally bring back anyone who's been bored this season and stopped watching, and he has new fans who will probably tune in solely to see him do his thing. 2) It'll help boost his album sales and promote his summer tour. 3) Whether you loved him or hated him, Adam was amazingly versatile last season, and his guidance with the current group could actually be really vital. He really knew how to choose the right song, own it, and make that stage his bitch. He just went through the process, so it's still fresh in his mind, and he has the added bonus of becoming really big really fast which will give the contestants an idea of what they should expect if they make it to the end. PLUS: ADAM FUCKING LAMBERT IS GONNA BE ON AMERICAN IDOL AGAIN. FUCK YEAH!!!

I'm also excited to see what he's gonna do with Whataya Want From Me. I have a feeling he's gonna completely change it up, maybe rearrange the melody just to show how it can be done. We'll see!!!

+I'm 6000 words into my Glambert & Kradam bigbang fic. It's slow-going right now, due to my raging perfectionism which causes me to write a scene, hate it, and promptly delete it, leaving me with no idea how to proceed. I do know where I'm going with it generally, but getting there is the hard part of course.

I will also be finishing Soaked over at the kinkmeme very soon, hopefully by the end of the weekend. I know what I need to write; I just need to sit down and fucking write it.

+I've really gotten into The United States of Tara. Anyone on my flist watching? So, so good! Diablo Cody is a genius.



What's new in your world, bbs?


+OH YEAH, I got into the program and school of my choice for the fall. Now I gotta pay my tuition by the 13th, which is the hard part!
