I've been using Safari as my main browser for at least a week now and I'm wondering if any other Safari users are having problems with livejournal or if it's the plug-in I'm using (which is great otherwise - no ads!) because I'm not able to select any tags from the edit tags list (I have to type them in) and I'm not able to change anything on my message menu. Everything works fine on Dreamwidth, so I find it odd that it doesn't on LJ.
My desktop wallpaper for July
was a scene from Pirates of the Caribbean with Captain Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Swann. I think Sparrabeth is one of the few OTPs I have that ended up being a non-canon pairing. I blame Dead Man's Chest for my interest in that ship. Before I was fine with Will/Elizabeth, but then they just had to show me teases of what the other two could be together and well my shipping heart was a goner. Unfortunately as we get farther and farther away from the last movie I see less and less activity with the fandom and this pairing specifically. Sad times.
This morning arrived the Wonder Woman animated DVD
that I ordered from Amazon last week. How successful DC has been with their films lately with New Frontier & Superman/Doomsday before it, I can't wait to watch this one. I knew it was time to order it with Green Lantern: First Flight coming out already and Superman/Batman on its way.
Lastly a plea to the DC comic gods before I go. Can we PLEASE stop the fascination of Buddy Baker (Animal Man) with Starfire? Didn't like when it first sprouted up in Countdown and hate it even more now that they keep bringing it back up and not let it die like all bad ideas should. Latest issue of Last Days of Animal Man has Buddy decide to make out with Starfire 15 years into the future. Gah! Honestly, I just want DC to decide once and for all what they're doing with Dick's love life (like that will happen), he proposes to Barbara Gordon only for it to be ignored almost immediately afterward and then he gets together with Starfire again in Titans only to tell her he doesn't love her at all a few issues later. Let's not even get started on the fact that Tim breaks up with Wondergirl rather harshly because DC brings back his dead girlfriend, Spoiler, only for him to treat her like crap (after that welcome back kiss that was quite lovely) and not want anything to do with her. Or that after teasing Bruce/Selina in Hush with him revealing his identity, they step all over that with butchering this incarnation of Helena with having SLAM BRADLEY be the father. WTF! I think every company not just DC (HELLO SPIDER-MAN) needs to realize that a hero having a wife/girlfriend/companion is not a bad thing and not something that puts the character/plot into a rut. It's just adding a supporting character and adding another dimension to the hero that is always underutilized. Then again I'm the type of person that would want one of the Superman books to focus on the Lois/Clark reporters aspect of their lives with how Clark's responsibilities and abilities as Superman affects their work and life.
ALSO KILL HUSH PLZ! Tired of this Bruce look-a-like crap. [/end rant]
