end of another era! (this one slightly less sad)
Moaning about on twitter last night, I saw a missive from Milo's pal Dino about a radio show that Milo had been on, talking frankly about the end of Heroes... and some other stuff too. He's currently working on a film up in Canada, which I didn't know, he's responsible for getting Diana Agron on her short but memorable role on Heroes, he's still not drinking, and the saddest part...

He's getting his tattoos removed.

Noooo! This totally bums me out. So much for my fantasy of someday kissing the blue star on his inner bicep. Oh well, a gal can dream, right? Well, not anymore, unless I were to bring a blue Sharpie to a date. :)

Listen here:
http://newnormalnetwork.com/gary-and-dino-show-7

Warning: there's a ton of heavy-metal filler bracketing their ads, and a good 30 minutes before Milo gets on while Dino and Gary talk to a guy who semi-successfully predicted a small earthquake in L.A. on Friday night. Illuminating, but admittedly, of limited interest to those of y'all there for the Milo. It's definitely worth listening to (Milo's opinion on the seasons after the first one pretty much fits in with the general one - am I REALLY the only one who genuinely enjoyed the entire show? :/ - but he cusses a LOT, and well, I think it's hot, I don't know about you).

In almost completely unrelated news, I'm still working on my original slashy thing, and it is going to have to be a trilogy of novels. OH DAMN. Anybody who's read my fanfic knows I can't shut up when it comes to talkin about my boys. ;)

And I have no intention of closing this LJ account or taking my fic down unless absolutely necessary. So dig in and enjoy the insanity; it's not going anywhere. And hell, I'm a huge fan of everyone who was ever involved on this show (including Nick D'Agosto, because he's not, and it's not his fault that West sucked big dangly donkey bits) and I've got to have SOMEplace to geek out about them, right?

I sincerely hope you are well.

Where in Canada? Did he say? Sorry, I'm lazy, I don't feel like listening to the podcast.

Winnipeg to be exact!

I wonder how their weather is.

I'm not around much in general anymore because of work, but I'll definitely keep an eye out for the novels! Awesome. Glad to hear you're well.

As for the interview - girl, you had me worried! I thought Milo was being really unkind about the show based upon your description, but I actually thought he was pretty diplomatic about it. I love the show too, but there's no denying things did change (personally, I think a lot of it had to do with keeping Sylar around for so long, but I don't think Milo was being specific at all), and he was quick to say it was a blessing to be involved in it. I'm relieved to hear he thinks everyone will be fine, and that they all got along etc. He sounded sad but unsurprised, which I guess was the same for all of us. And I see he mentioned on twitter he went to a punk gig in Canada after the announcement to clear his head, saying he "needed that". Aw. *pets the sad little geek-punk*

So, yeah, Milo came off well in the interview, I thought, but whoa, was I the only one who found Dino a bit off-putting? I could have done without him repeatedly referring to Dianna Agron as a "hot piece of ass," honestly. Milo was calling her "sweet" and "intelligent," but Dino's cock seemed to have run away with his brain. Shame, because he doesn't seem like a bad dude in general? I listened to their next podcast, and I liked what he had to say about not using racial slang, and how dangerous stereotyping can be. But ahahaha, if that's how he talks to women, no wonder he's single!!

was I the only one who found Dino a bit off-putting?
Dino can be like that. I thought he was an absolute doll when I met him (he totally played catcher to Milo's pitcher, as Milo was finally able to get rid of me after me talking to him for about ten solid minutes) and we talked and shrieked and geeked out for about forty minutes (seriously!) but he is kind of a typical sexist douche at times. I was seriously put out by his referring to Dianna as a "piece of ass", and I was hoping Milo would be like "Uh, no, shut your pie hole, 2nd-string BFF", but instead he just countered with her angelic-ness (which is true; most attractive people seen at last year's SDCC were Milo, Hayden, Dawn Olivieri [the winner by a landslide] and Dianna Agron!) But hey, they're just dudes.

I think Dino's single because he's never going to have the hots for anyone as bad as he does Milo. ;) Dino is SO IN LOVE with Milo that it hurts. I wish they'd just get together. Or maybe they already have (though if I'm going to hook Milo up with anybody in the Divide Social Club, it'll be Russ, the 1st-string BFF).
miss_miso From: miss_miso Date: May 20th, 2010 03:24 am (UTC) (Link)
Ahaha, well. I've since sat down and examined my own response to it, and yes I still find it irritating, but I'm not sure why, when this is exactly how we talk to each other about the guys we crush on? And Dino actually reminds me a lot of three of my partner's friends, whom I hated on first introduction, and couldn't understand why my bf liked them. I soon realised it was all talk (well, for two of them it was, for the other not so much - he dated a series of models/cheerleaders, and since there aren't that many in NZ, he developed a bit of a reputation!), and that they're just big softies with nice hearts but no brain/mouth filter. I love those three jerks now.
 
(I sent Dino an email, actually, lightheartedly pointing out how his language may not endear him to women. I guess he liked it, because he read it out on today's podcast about 18mins in. I knew it would appeal to him because I mentioned Milo's ass. Couldn't let the opportunity pass!)

omg you better not take down your fic ever. i'd be even more devastated. D:

Oh, they're not going anywhere. They are my proudest creative achievement.

THIS.

Now I'm gonna hide under my desk and cry.

I know, I think I was the most sad about that part too. I was like "Nooooooo, Milo, what are you THINKING? D:" The star tattoo is my favorite...

I'm really glad that you're not going to delete your fics because I enjoy rereading them :D
mystery_sock From: mystery_sock Date: May 19th, 2010 08:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
He has his reasons. But I'm sad. And he should stop being so bloody mature; I've got some years on him and I am NEVER giving up my ink.

Oh well, there's plenty of other parts of him I could kiss, I guess. ;D
ibonekoen From: ibonekoen Date: May 19th, 2010 11:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
He does have his reasons, and I do respect them, but I'm still sad. I actually have not gotten ink yet, but I have my tattoo designed. I just need to find a reputable place to do it and figure out the cost, ha.

LOL, true, lots and lots of other parts of him that could be kissed. ;D

Milo's signed to star in a feature with Keitel and Oldman; maybe that's what he's working on?

Thank you for the link. I will try and listen to it soon. Milo is just so fuggin' sexy to me. I'm eager to 'hear' him though I feel kind of weird when watching these actor-crushes I have, when they're not in character. I'd abuse he and Adrian's YouTube channels if I didn't feel like the potential of getting too caught up. I don't know what I'm saying lol Milo's hot. Adrian's hot. Long live Petrelli and co. I'll prob revisit soon so thanks for keeping 'em up and letting us know. Any word on Adrian? I say reboot "Profit" dang it. *end ramble* lol Glad your other project is coming along well! :-)

Aw, too bad about the tattoos but I can understand the wanting to be a blank slate thing, especially with having to spend so much time getting them covered up. Tattoos are *hard* to cover up nicely. Luckily for Adrian (not so luckily for us) he didn't get to be shirtless as often as Milo did :(

Did you hear Adrian's new interview? Doesn't talk much about Heroes, mostly band from TV and charity work. Good stuff though.

Yay for your original slashy stuff! WERK

I did hear the new Adrian interview - <3

Hey, I'm glad you have no plans to go anywhere or delete your fic-stash. Hope you're well (says here you're achy).
mystery_sock From: mystery_sock Date: June 11th, 2010 08:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I was (and in kind of a bad state emotionally - a lot of disappointments and bummer-ness - and it NEVER STOPPED RAINING so it's actually been NINE MONTHS of continuous gray skies and rain, and that sucks).

But I'm somewhat better now. Writing helps. :)
indyhat From: indyhat Date: June 17th, 2010 09:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ugh, that sounds thoroughly sucky, sorry :( Especially rain. I like the odd wet day but continuously it does sap the soul rather.

And I'm glad to hear you're doing better. Writing's pretty good for nearly everything that ails you. Hope the book is going well :)

The tattoos are going?For reals?!Oh NOES!!*cries* That's a freakin' tragedy,that is.:( I mean,I've got a star fetish,cause of that tattoo of his.Seriously!I made myself a bracelet with star charms cause of it!

Anyhoo,I haven't seen you in ages - so to speak!I'm on a Twitter and Facebook blackout - I've got my reasons for it.So it's good to see you on here!And,dude...don't you EVER dare quittin' this journal,or going ANYWHERE with all the fic on here.You got me into fanfic.Heck,I'm finally WRITING fanfic,and you started all that for me.So...unless you can,like,send me all of Ritual printed out...DON'T LEAVE!

Man,I'm REALLY curious about your novel(s?!)I know the basic gist of it,and I just know it'll be epic.EPIC.And hey,we don't mind you getting carried away.That's how we love it!

Y'know,since I'm writing myself,I've constantly been thinking that I wish I could get sex-writing pointers from you.No-one writes sex like you do - NO ONE!I mean really,the sex scenes in your books - and fics - NEVER fail in making me cross my legs!

Uh...okay,I went off topic like nuts,and rambled?!But I've just missed you,s'all!*hugs*
mystery_sock From: mystery_sock Date: June 11th, 2010 08:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Missed you too bb. I would like to actually give sex-scene writing workshops, except that I can't exactly explain or quantify what I'm doing! My only advice - watch a lot of porn, read a lot of erotica from a lot of sources, remember what gets you hot or makes you go "awww" and steal it. Most of both the porn and the 'rotica is shitty, but every once in a while there's something that just makes you go "OMG! *wank wank*" and it's important to remember that.
anths_girl From: anths_girl Date: June 12th, 2010 03:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well I'll tell you,I sometimes can't believe how hard - ahem,no pun intended - it is to write sex.That said,I'm currently busy writing the smuttiest thing I've EVER attempted - and it isn't even all that smutty!Though I've worked really hard on it.I'd really like your opinion,actually.I'm planning on posting it really soon.

None of my stuff's beta'd,though.What with doing all my writing on a cell-phone,'n all,it all takes so much time already.I don't know how the whole beta process works,anyway.I'm VERY self-conscious about my work cause of it,though.I know it's all just riddled with grammar and punctuation mistakes.*blushes*

That said,it's a part of a SPN fic,the smut I'm reffering to.Not the ongoing one on my LJ,but a different one.Yes,I confess,I've kinda switched fandoms lately.Can't help it though.Those Winchester boys are just SOO pretty.The one I'm writing is a Sam/OFC fic.I mean really,that man inspires smut.That body,those nice,big hands...*mind goes to the gutter*

Right.So maybe I'll link you to it when I'm done?If I'm not too embarrassed,that is.*blushes some more*
mystery_sock From: mystery_sock Date: June 12th, 2010 06:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sure, do it - but don't be alarmed if it takes me a while to get to it. But I'll keep in mind that you have something to show me, so I'll be alert. :)

I love SPN too, btw...
anths_girl From: anths_girl Date: June 12th, 2010 10:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hey,whenever you get to it would be fine.Just let me know when you do,though!

Linky: Pure Blood

I'm totally,totally HOOKED on SPN.That's why I've gone off Twitter and everything - I'm a spoiler-phobe to the point of obsession with Season Five of Supernatural.Post 5.11,I don't know a thing of what went on there,and I don't want to,either,'till I get the DVD later this year.

Anyhoo,good luck with your writing,and anything else that might be going on for you!*huggles*
mystery_sock From: mystery_sock Date: August 8th, 2010 04:37 am (UTC) (Link)
Just got this (just logged in for the first time in months!) and I'll happily read this and give you some feedback VERY SOON. Forgive me! :)
anths_girl From: anths_girl Date: August 8th, 2010 12:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Dude! So glad to hear from you! And hey, don't worry 'bout the delay. Like I said, whenever you get a chance. I'd be honoured if you read my fic AT ALL!

Just one thing though, the link in my comment above, is the wrong one. I re-posted the fic a while back, with some corrections and stuff. So HERE'S the one you should read:

Pure Blood

Again, I'd be honoured if you can read it. And PLEASE, give me some bruttally honest feedback! I'd really value your opinion!

Thanks!
mystery_sock From: mystery_sock Date: August 8th, 2010 06:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'll send you feedback by PM...
charone From: charone Date: May 21st, 2010 02:08 am (UTC) (Link)
I am very glad you are keeping your fic up. I will need Ritual after looking at some Heroes DVD every once in a while.

To bad that the star and Milo are parting ways. I hope that it is not the same for Milo and Adrian.

you will forever and always be the go to Heroes slash.
