I Feel Better, And Thus, I Give You "Leverage" Vid recs  
I feel better. I actually slept last night and my back only hurts the normal amount that I look forward to each month.

To celebrate - I give you vid recs for "Leverage". Even though - I am actually serious here - I don't even watch that show. Not like when I claim I don't watch "One Tree Hill" and you all know I'm a big stupid liar-head.

I actually don't watch "Leverage". It's a long story and I don't want to mention anything - coughcoughmickeybricksanddannybluecoughcough - but I do love me some Christian Kane and heck, yeah, Aldis is quite adorable on that show.

"How do you know, if you don't even watch that show?" Well, there may have been one late night watching of anything that popped up under the search of "Christian Kane" on The YouTube. May have been. Possibly.

And occasionally I think I could ship Hardison and Eliot even though I don't even watch that show.

"How can you ship two people from a show you don't even watch?"

See the boys play Rock, Paper, Scissors

See the boys fight over a shirt

See the boys get pissy with each other and then give the love

See the boys gets pissy cuz apparently Eliot is an un-American dick who doesn't like baseball

Questions? "Those weren't vids. We want recs. Fan-Made-Music-Video Recs!" Well, if you want sexy-sex, go someplace else (or that'll be a different post on a different day). Instead, for today at least, I give you vids that crack my shit up and made me feel monumentally better the last few days.

Hardison is fine with it if Eliot is gay

Hardison and Eliot are Superheros (that's right, Tenacious D! style)

Leverage done to the Duck Tales Theme Song (omg, remember this song?)

Okay, Hardison and Eliot and Dawson's Creek - wait, I mean Parker - are adorable together, it's true, plus I now like this song

And lastly, yes, I went looking for Christian Kane, but I may think Aldis is all squishy cute now

"How can we convince you to watch this show? How we say?!"

You probably can't. But go ahead and try. Hit me with the sexy vid recs. I like explosions. And cute squee friendships don't hurt when trying to con me into something. Also, how come there weren't any music vids of Eliot being all adorable? Not that I don't like the sexy hot of him with the beatings and the punchings, but can a girl get some ridiculous cute?

In sum - don't forget tomorrow is Stonehenge Apocalypse Day! (okay, that's not in sum at all). Expect a ridiculous cracktastic review by Monday. Probably mostly describing Misha's clothes.

I watched them all! :D And I love that show. I can't wait for new eps in another week. Another week. So unfair. I like the one where Eliot is in that Japanese commercial. Hilarious! He's so adorable. You know, in a "Ima-Kill-You-If-You-Look-At-Me-Like-That-Again" sort of way. ;) He and Dean would have issues working together. It's the tough-guy thing. There's only one tough-guy allowed per series. Otherwise things just get messy.

*skips off to think of ways that Dean and Eliot could meet*

Dude! Thanks!

That song "Wild Boys" is a perfect fit for these guys and man, did you deliver on the Explosions! I do love me some Explosions. When the car goes flipping over Nate's head, I went kind of slack-jaw-ed at the epic movie scale of that.
"Imma Be" - I actually already had tagged because seriously, I think I might be a lesbian for Parker.
The "Toy Soldiers" one was good but I couldn't stop flashing back to being twelve and playing that song on repeat in my neighbor's kitchen.
I really loved the Christian one with all the fighting. And how is it so hot when he's on the ground getting kicked over and over? The bit at the end where he says "That's what I do." That man, how is he legal?
Then a Weird Al song, which made me squee, cuz Weird Al!
And finally, the one announcing your Aldis fansite - which seriously, I think was my favorite. That song was the perfect fit and it was so well-edited. I loved how you captured all of those little faces he makes.

Thanks for these! Made my weekend.

I didn't make our video - just recommended the song and certain scenes and a friend made it.

The big question is - ARE YOU GONNA WATCH NOW???

Well, tell your friend I loved it.

God, I really want to. Maybe it's time to give it another try (the car flipping over Nate's head really got me excited!).

Here's the thing - I loved "Hustle". Like loved "Hustle". It wasn't just a great con artist show. It was a great show. And it only got about 24 episodes and then was canceled. It came back in 2009 but AMC never picked it up. I miss it bunches and bunches.

And originally when "Hustle" was first canceled (or sent on an extremely long hiatus) that was when "Leverage" first came out. So I tried to watch the Pilot ep, but the whole time I just felt heartbroken over the loss of "Hustle". And that's silly, because yeah, it's just a TV show, but dude, the amount of love I had for "Hustle" is ridiculous. If "Ocean's 11" hadn't come out before Hustle, I probably wouldn't be able to watch that (Okay, I would because Ocean's 11, but you get my point).

Now anything that has con artists on it, I always find myself thinking "yeah, but you're not Mickey and the gang, are you?" And I know that's not fair, but I can't watch paramedic shows now either because none of them are "Saved", so...clearly, I get over attached to certain things.

In the last year, I have really discovered the Christian Kane love and I keep seeing behind the scenes and I know that whole show and the cast are ripe for the cute/lovin/fic writing/fun times and that I should just suck it up.

So I guess my question to you is - do I need to start from the beginning or can I jump in when the new season starts (which is when?). My sister and I share the Netflix and I do ask for things through it, but the sister already gives me so much shit for listening to country music now (who am I kidding, I give myself shit for listening to country music but omg Steve and Christian, seriously, can I just lick them?) and it's really embarrasing to admit I'm thinking about watching this show when I've spent the last like three years, yelling at the TV everytime I see an ad for it "You so wish you were Hustle and cut your damn hair Christian!" (which I now totally think he should not cut his hair, but whatever, a girl can change her mind whenever she damn well pleases. Right?)

God, it's like I'm having a sordid affair, sneaking around to watch Christian Kane on a show about Con Artists. Are they always like out to do good or do they sometimes just do it bcause they need money? I like when criminals are criminals but still sometimes good guys too.

That was a long crazy venting of my past heartbreak and nervousness at trusting again, wasn't it? Erm, sorry?

This comment made me think of Dean and Eliot doing a guy-stare-off and trying to be more manly than the other and Sam and Hardison just like sighing over-dramatically and being like "fuck our fucking lives, dude. They are idiots."
