The Avengers in Fifteen Minutes


Got a new feature here: the LJ "like" function, which seems to work more like Tumblr's reblog than stealing my stuff, so I tentatively endorse this; it's not the problem I have with people jacking entire entries and reposting them as their own work.

ETA: Apparently the new LJ repost function is bringing in some (very angry) complaints, so we're going to have to reverse that endorsement. I'm leaving the Twitter/Facebook/G+ options on since no one seems to have any problems with those. If you are seeing this entry and do not wish to see this entry I am very sorry and have done what I can to prevent it from happening again.

This one ran long. Given the movie in question, I don't think anyone will really mind. Don't know what, if anything, I might do next, except that I will soldier through the ~thrilling conclusion~ of Breaking Dawn or die trying.

Chairing some guys to death, please holdCollapse )

This is quite possibly the best thing I've read in ages. Genius! You are a brilliant, brilliant genius, and you've won the interwebs with this one!

Please change this line: "This ain't Marvel's Avengers Assemble for Five Minutes." to say FIFTEEN minutes, then turn and wink at the camera. Thank you.

But... part of the joke is that the movie = fifteen minutes, so a shorter version where the army was immediately defeated would be more like five?

... but I highly doubt you can actually copyright it. What should happen if someone where to inform the x number of people/companies who own The Avengers?
Just pointing it out before you get yourself in trouble with $$$ People are lawsuit-happy these days.

The copyright refers to the original elements of the work, not the Avengers themselves; parody is covered under fair use, in that enough of the original work has to be referenced in order for there to be a parody of it, and we didn't have any problem with copyright or legal elements when Orion published my book back in 2005. It's similar to the way there's a spate of obvious Fifty Shades of Grey parody books out now.

Now, if I sat here and wrote a straightforward novel about the continuing adventures of the Avengers, yeah, I would be shut down.

You know, I haven't made icons in the longest time (mostly because I lost Photoshop in the Compocalypse and took a while to get it back), but I kind of don't want to do anything the least bit productive for the next two days after having managed this, so I might look into that.

(I say that as someone who WILL ALWAYS LOVE Joss Whedon. He's one of a handful of writers whose work I've enjoyed across a variety of fandoms/genres.)

Your snark is affectionate snark.

I laughed out loud reading this more than when I saw the movie - so many excellent references, absolutely brilliant ♥
jenny0 From: jenny0 Date: July 7th, 2012 05:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
So purely because of reading this, I looked up Avengers on imdb so I could see some pictures (still can't get them to load on LJ, sad trombone). I discovered that I would totally do Tom Hiddleston as Loki. I also had my snortlaugh of the day when I found in his bio that he originally auditioned for Thor, "However, 'Kenneth Branagh' decided he was more suitable for the role of Loki." Something about those quotation marks - "Kenneth Branagh, OR SO HE SAYS", "Kenneth Branagh, WHO DOES HE THINK HE IS" - just made my day.
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: July 9th, 2012 11:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Heh, yeah. I think anyone whose name is also in the database gets quotation marks (you'd think they'd just link their profile, but I guess not). But it has this "so-called, alleged 'Kenneth Branagh'" effect, yeah.

[If you don't store your science underground, I just really don't even know why you bother.]

I need to use this as my LJ title. Or something. Can I? Please? I'll credit on my profile and immortalize your name in pipette tip box art or something.
