The penultimate part of my Generation Kill picspam. Episode 6 - Stay Frosty.

Some things:

→ I don't actually have a lot to say about this ep because so much happens and it's all amazing so picking things out is hard! Also some of the caps are missing and my viewer was playing up again and on top of that my Photoshop reset itself so I'm not sure about the colouring. So I may in future respam this ep as I don't feel I've done it justice.
→ I love Ray humping Walt's neck. I love Ray/Walt. Please let there be more fic for them!
→ That cap is there purely to show how ridiculously insanely long ASkars legs are!
→ I love Nate's 'WTF IS HE ON?' expression around Ray. (Yeah ok, I kind of ship Ray and Nate too)
→ 'More like Trombley?!?!?' has to be the most hilarious thing in the show.
→ Urgh Walt's abandoned gun kills me. As does the look on Brad's face, he knows he can't help him.
→ Horizon shot!
→ Love Nate's bitchface.
→ PFC(?) Nathan's face is so sad there. Crap this ep is sadder than I remembered.
→ Lots of Nate/Brad eyefucking going on. Ok ok, I ship them as much as Brad/Ray now.
→ Their little smirks. Stark and Alex were so pitch perfect all the way through, just perfect.
→ I really enjoy Wilson's arms.
→ I love that the real Colbert did that, that it's not just some screenwriter trick or invention.
→ Nate's response to Captain America's insanity speech is wonderful. He's wondering how you classify insanity when you realise that Captain America is making sense.
→ Bonus Walt! And that's where the caps end. So I'm just going to make a few more comments on the rest of the episode.
→ I love Brad's don't give me the baby bit. It's hilarious and adorable.
→ Also, I don't think Eric Nenninger gets enough love. He makes Captain America so sympathetic.
→ When they're taking off their MOPP suits the look on Lee's face is just priceless. I can't really explain why I love it so much but it's just this perfect combination of relief and dismay and horror.
→ Nate's whole 'Don't fuck with my men' bit, I'm not gonna lie it's a little bit hot!
→ When Alpha are shooting at Colbert's team in the field, Patterson running down the line just gets me for some reason, as does Ray driving like a lunatic and then getting out and having to be held back by Patterson.
→ Finally the quotation I've put, from over the credits. That's lifted from the book right? Only I found it familiar when I read the book but now I can't find it in the book so I'm not sure.

Also, this quotation is REALLY long and I can't split it into who says what - I'm lazy, but I think I have the line breaks right.

I don't give a fuckwhat you write. It's gonna come out all liberal media bullshit spin on it anyway.

Seriously, what am I supposed to do with all this bullshit you guys constantly talk?

You think I'm some sort of racist psycho redneck?

What, you ain't?

And you ain't some fucking militant taco-bender revolutionary?

See, reporter? No outsider can understand how we really are. We're all fucking brothers.

And we're all fucking alpha males.

We gotta constantly test each other.

All we do is fight for position in the pack, dawg. All that training we do, the martial arts, to grappling... is for practice, but it's also for real, to achieve dominance over a motherfucker. We do the same thing mentally. It's prison rules, dawg.

We probe for any fucking weakness we can find... family, race, brains, looks... anything you have on a motherfucker, you wear it the fuck out. Being a Marine isn't about words, anyways. It's about your fucking actions. In the civilian world, a fool slaps a "protect the planet" sticker on his car, suddenly he's all about the environment and shit. Don't matter that he drives that fucking car, fires up his computer and video games and cell phone every night with electricity made from nuclear power, coal and fucking melted baby seal oil. "nuh-uh, I got a dolphin sticker on my shit, "so I'm all about saving the fucking planet." In our fucking Marine corps civilization it don't matter what a motherfucker says. Only thing that matters is, dawg, when you charge that motherfucking machinegun when the motherfucker tells you to charge the motherfucking machinegun. Shit, everybody in this platoon is a hard charger. Marines bitch about everything, man... chow, fucking moron officers, no time for a combat jack...

You never hear a Marine in this platoon bitch that we could die at any second.

Hell no. That's what we signed up for. Hoorah that, motherfucker.

Fucking care if some latte-sipping bisexual college student reading about Justin Timberlake in "Rolling Stone" thinks I'm a psycho racist cracker? Fuck no. I'd give my life for any brother in here. I know any one of them would do the same for me. You think it matters if I call fucking T a nigger? Fucking love that big dark green marine and his big old beautiful nigger dick. Love all my dirty spic brothers here.

And I love this fucking cracker-ass inbred racist peckerwood fuck. I don't know why I do, dawg, but I do.

'Cause I'm pretty and I shave my balls. Want to touch 'em, reporter?

No. Thanks.

Look, man, I joined the Marine corps 10 days after I graduated high school. I went to school with all these rich kids at St. Tammany's parish, but I was an apartment kid. My mom worked. I worked summers digging footings on the weekends.I was a dishwasher at D'Angelo's pizzeria. I busted my ass. Became a recon Marine since I was 19. My shit is tight as fuck. I know that, my brothers in this platoon know that, so fuck all of you.

Damn, war scribe, you just spit on my fucking rack, dawg.



You see that pile of dried camel dung? That's my fucking pillow, dawg. You fucking spit on it, fool. You're a heinous-asswhite boy.

I'm sorry.

Also, I do believe the commentary at the end would be the Reporter, Poke and Chaffin, although I'm not sure about Chaffin. :/

I love all of this-- I love it so much, I should be going to bed but won't because instead I'll be watching another GenKill episode. ♥

It is Chaffin, Poke and Evan but I'm not 100% on who says what and I just couldn't be bothered to sort it out more. It's been a long day at work!

Thanks! I do adore this ep. I think I probably will come back and respam this.

I'm watching Get Some right now.

I remember reading somewhere that Person said something in one of the Rolling Stone articles about Justin Timberlake, and they found it funny because Justin was on the cover when it was published. Wouldn't this be the quote they were talking about?

As for the quote at the end; I don't think it is lifted from the book, at least I don't remember it, but I have always wondered where it is from. I think maybe it's the audio for a scene they cut.

Thanks. Ohhh that might be why I recognise it then. Cheers!

These are just great. The first thing I noticed about the Humvee scene was how long ASkars' legs were. Amazing.

"Sgt. Colbert is wings level." =]

These are always gorgeous and I love your commentary on all of them. Great Job!

What do you use to make the caps? I use VLC player with my dvd's and I find it to be a little delayed in capturing what I want.

These aren't my caps, they're from [livejournal.com profile] peopleareshapes but I normally just use VLC set on automatic for my caps.

*sighs* It probably says something about myself that the first thing I squealed upon seeing this was: "Eyesex!"

That said, what are you talking about when you say this?: I love that the real Colbert did that, that it's not just some screenwriter trick or invention. I'm fairly certain the aeroplane-thing was invented.

My mind keeps telling me that beautiful, sad-faced person is Christeson. O_o.

The aeroplane bit is but he did run round, I don't think his shirt was off either but he was what could be considered out of character for the real Colbert, and I think the exchange about drugs/ballerina is an invention also.

It's not Christeson, is it? I thought Christeson looked different - crap I'm going to have to go back and rewatch now - oh the hardship!

I didn't manage to get that far through the book - was distracted by required reading for my lit class.

I get the minor characters confused. *shakes head*

Yeah it's on the first page of Ch.28 (only have .pdf to hand) and he says 'you know what? I'm going to run through that field like waving my arms like an aeroplane', and then he says 'better now' and sits back down - he's not shirtless though and he doesn't yell.

It's Nathan Christopher, well in the book it is. I still get some of the minor characters confused as well.

...I need to get around to finishing the book, stat. Ah. I thought there was a Christopher around there, I just keep confusing him with Christeson.

I love your icon.

Yes, yes you do. It's so wonderful. Apparently I do too because it's PFC Christeson and Lance Corporal Christopher. Urgh it's all so confusing.

Thanks! I <3 Hardison.

Psht. They shouldn't have such confusing surnames!

I know! It should be a requirement for the Marines, if someone else already has your name/sounds like your name then tough you're out.

Lots of Nate/Brad eyefucking going on.

That scene in the dark just gets to me every time - I could rewatch and rewatch. Having said that, I haven't rewatched this episode as often as the others for some reason - I must rectify that!

Yeah me too. Apparently I've just got the whole of Gen Kill participating in an orgy because I'm shipping so many of them now.

You really must, it's an episode with so many gems.

OMG, Nate's "don't fuck with my men" speech! I melt just thinking about it again. Thank you for the marvelous pic spam!

"Sergeant Colbert is wings-level. Can somebody clear him hot?"

I just l-o-v-e that scene so much its inappropriate. "Better now." FTMFW.

Your picspam posts are just the perfect companion to the episodes! I just finished watching 6 and don't know what I'll do after 7 with no picspam to console me.

And you were right, GK is awesome.
