Kauai is amazing. Way better than Oahu. Also, Big Island for the volcanoes if you get a chance.

Is it weird that I’ve dreamed about going to Kauai ever since I saw A Perfect Getaway? (Also I like to imagine that I’d a) bump into ANY of the cast of Hawaii Five-0 and b) meet someone Timothy Oly-yes please-phant knows.)

1K just for the airfare to Hawaii.
Too bad I have to save for more responsible things like, oh, a reliable car.

(I think I’m going to make Hawaii my next big goal once the car’s taken care of. So… In three or four years, probably. The only major downside: I’ll most likely have to go by myself, as I doubt I can find anyone else with the money/time/desire to go with me. And while I’m a much braver traveler than I used to be, flying and staying at an ISLAND THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY by myself as a lady is deffo a little intimidating.)

((On the positive side: I think I’ll get a Stitch tattoo while I’m there, as is only apropos.))



the rock is fucking precious

There’s a new billboard on the way to work about recycling and Anthony Mackie is on it and I almost drove into the other lane because I was too busy ogling.

If it was up to me to save your life, would you trust me to do it?

"Driving forward, looking back,
she finds there is only the loosest bond
between time and pain
some things don’t pass,
the injuries don’t heal
they merely find a place in our guts
and in our bones
where they fitfully rest,
tossing and turning between our knuckles and ribs
waiting to wake
as the shadows grow long."
- Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow [page 12] (via lizznotliz)

Remember how I was yelling recently about the series of GdT articles I was writing? Well, Criminal Element has started posting them. And here’s the fourth:

Vivisect the Director: Guillermo del Toro and Blade II. A look back at del Toro’s first comic book adaptation, a fun action film featuring some uniquely Lovecraftian vamps and a whole plethora of delightful actors, such as: Norman Reedus, Ron Perlman, Luke Goss, and Tony Curran.

Please share, comment, reblog, all that jazz — it really helps me out when the website gets traffic. The more hits Criminal Element gets, the more likely it is that my editor will keep me supplied with work/monies. THANKING YOU.
