OMG!!! I saw Star Trek ... oh, yeah, and AI results.

I loved ST, but honestly that OMG and WOOHOO!!! was because KRIS ALLEN IS IN THE FINAL TWO!!!!!!!!!!!! Gokey was voted out!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOO TO THE HOO!!!!!!!!!!!! I know that Adam will win, but go on wit' yo bad self, Kris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So frickin' happy about that. I stopped watching this season two episodes in to the top 12, but Kris drew me back. GO KRIS!!!

Now, ahem, I DID love Star Trek -- I don't think they had even one teeny, tiny mis-step. So well done. And I LOVED the Spock/Uhura relationship, and the casting, and the little guy with Scotty. And Karl Urban kicked ass!!! McCoy (and Deforest Kelley) was my favorite of original Trek, and Urban had his vocal inflections, mannerisms down-pat. FABULOUS JOB!!!!

And goooooooooooooooo Kris!!!

ETA: MADE a Kris icon, so replaced my lovely Brooke/Cook icon.

I didn't know you're a fellow Kris fan!!! *squee*

Yeah, I've seen your posts, but I'm here on training and don't have that much time. But I knew you were a fan (huge fan), but I also know you like Alison, and I don't so I didn't want to get into that.

Yeah, it's understandable not commenting a lot when you're busy.

I have a tendency to comment in ways that avoid drama while stating my opinions. I have no issues with people disagreeing with me though. I'm comfortable with friendly debates.

Everyone has different taste in music and I don't have a problem with it unless the artist offends me with their lyrics (I have trouble respecting people who love songs that encourage sexism, racism, or homophobia) or just go completely over the line in certain ways. Like, for example, I have issues with Danny because it seems like he used his dead wife's memory to get him sympathy votes.

I also have a problem with people calling artists "the new [insert rock legend]". As a music geek, it offends me, even if I don't like the musician.

So, anyway, I don't mind at all that you don't like Allison. She definitely isn't for everyone. Same as every other musician on the face of the earth.

I do love the shared Kris love. And the icon you used for this post. I was a fan of both David and Brooke last season.

I just don't want to go into someone else's journal and offer criticism of something or someone they like in THEIR journal. In mine, it's my journal, so my opinions are fair game in comments and such, but when it's something that I disagree with completely (as opposed to specific plot points, etc. of a shared fandom love), then I just don't go there because it's just not necessary, imo.

I have talked about Kris a bit in the past, so if you click the AI tag, you'll see some Kris love. I adored Brooke and loved Cookie last season.

Understandable. My philosophy is mostly that I try to be as nice about my opinions as possible on my own LJ as well. And, yeah, I avoid commenting on stuff I completely disagree about in certain ways. But, yeah, I'm cool with the just saying people don't like something. All I want to avoid on my LJ is drama. That's why I try to say things nicely.

I will! Cook was my favorite last season. I love rockers. Although, oddly, I don't love Adam... Everyone who knows me in RL thought I would though.
Arabian: Kelly_Stararabian on May 14th, 2009 04:33 pm (UTC)
I wanted to love Adam and kept trying, but two things make it impossible. His voice is slightly effeminate. It has nothing to do with his sexuality, it's just that his voice simply has an effeminate quality to it. Secondly, the screeching. I may not like the effemininity of his voice, but he is a VERY good singer. Until he starts screeching. Geez! I just -- no. Just no.

He loses me every time. I try and give him a chance every week, and he loses me every time.
faith5by5_1013faith5by5_1013 on May 14th, 2009 04:53 pm (UTC)
I wanted to love him too. I like when he sings lower and slower. Without the screeching or showing off. At least the screeching doesn't hurt my ears as bad as that scream Danny did at the end of Dream On.

I try to give him a chance too. Sometimes I'll like part of his performance and then he goes into the screeching...

I love Adam, but I love Kris too! So happy for this finale because whoever wins I will like! I couldn't stand Gokey I was so happy he got the boot!

Not an Adam fan at all, but I know he'll win ... I'm just happy to get Kris for another week. WOOHOOO! Hated Gokey almost from the get-go.

I haven't seen Star Trek yet. My heart is breaking. =[

It's so good. I can't imagine anyone not liking it. I hope you can see it soon.

I'm a total Adam fan, but I'm so happy that Kris will be in the finale! He's simply adorable!
Arabian: Billie Piper_02arabian on May 14th, 2009 11:42 am (UTC)
Hmm, yeah, I think I've read that you like him, probably why I didn't comment as I'm really not a fan at all. But we can unite in the adorable-ness of Kris and the glee that Danny is gone.
Giuliana: billie piper: eyes raisedantigone921 on May 15th, 2009 12:02 am (UTC)
Adam's voice isn't for everyone. I, of course, love it when he hits those high notes (it gives me good chills), but it's understandable that many don't.

I'm so glad Danny is gone. His voice, while technically good, was so boring. Plus, he annoyed the hell out of me.

OOHHH Another Spock and Uhura shipper ;) I LOVED the MCCOY CASTING! I heard Karl Urban was the trekker in the cast so must have worked his ass off. XD
Arabian: Sheldon & Penny makeout timearabian on May 14th, 2009 11:44 am (UTC)
Yeah, Spock and Uhura were awesome. And Karl Urban did such a fabulous job. It shows that he's a Trekker!! Not surprising.
Angelaserenityveritas on May 14th, 2009 07:16 am (UTC)
I just saw it yesterday! I'm totally squealing-shipping Spock/Uhura!!! My boyfriend just kept laughing at me during the movie. :P

But yes! Spock/Uhura <3<3<3
Arabian: Sheldon & Pennyarabian on May 14th, 2009 11:43 am (UTC)
The Spock/Uhura stuff was awesome. Spock was my favorite character. Quinto did a great job.

I loved Urban's portrayal of McCoy. Spot on perfect. And surprisingly I really loved Pine's portrayal of Kirk. Of all the reboots - I think these two succeeded the best in actually capturing the character they are portraying and making it their own at the same time.

Granted Zachary had the hardest reboot and I'm not completely on board with everything yet but he did a good job. I loved Pegg's Scotty though I think it's a wee bit off character. Still loved it to death.

Sulu and Uhura felt the most off character to me. Sulu because I it just didn't feel like Sulu to me and Uhura is just a big change to get used to. Saldana did a nice job though.

As for Chekov - hee. I was never a Chekov fan but I do think the baby Russian puppy he had going on here.

I loved the movie.
Arabian: Deanarabian on May 14th, 2009 01:37 pm (UTC)
Pine was actually my least favorite -- he didn't seem quite big enough for me, I guess. I think he did a great job, but he just wasn't quite there for me. I think the movie should have flat-out been HIS! Instead, I'm hearing a lot more about Quinto's Spock, and my personal faves were Spock, Uhura and McCoy.

As much as I love John Cho, I do agree that Sulu didn't quite seem like Sulu. Neither did Scotty, but I do love Simon Pegg. Uhura was always a cipher to me anyway, so I was fine with her being a bit different. But Saldana did capture her regalness that I expect from Uhura.

I loved Chekov in the series and here.

Great film, definitely.

YES AND YES! I'd been a little unsure about that casting, and Bones has always, always, always been my favorite, but Urban was perfect and FREAKING AWESOME from second one.
Arabianarabian on May 14th, 2009 03:50 pm (UTC)
I admit I haven't watched TOS in a while, but in that very first scene, Urban just nailed the mannerisms and vocal inflections so well. I was so happy. Cupid from Xena has come so far.

I kind of bailed on AI partway through the Top 10 when I realized I wasn't gaga about anyone and after my fellow Tar Heel Anoop got voted off, but I do have a soft spot for Kris. He's adorable, and I think it's awesome that he got to the Top 2 with NO pimping and no screen time before the semis.
