A Guide To Downloading Daria Via Torrents (xposted like mad!) [19 May 2008|03:30pm]


Hi there, fellow esteemsters.

So, loads of people here have only got a few Daria episodes off limewire, and are desperately seeking another fix of an adventure time they can enjoy without ever having to leave their room (or cardboard box, with a high-speed internet connection). Unlike hiking trails*, I have the solution! Love me.

A recent post led to a completely accidental rant on my part about the wonders of Azureus, a downloading program, especially with such large scale things as the Daria series.

Some extremely kind and noble person was about to upload (on sendspace or whatever) individual episodes of Daria. That's about 200MG per ep, killing the time, effort and bandwidth of both the up/&/downloaders, as opposed to torrenting, where you can go bit by bit (without having to sit there for one single file).

The only problem is, it's kind of confusing..

I downloaded like 3 programs (Azureus twice!) and just kept opening them, staring at them blankly, and deleting them.

I don't know utorrent, but I think bittorrent is one of the commonest. I found it too simple, and thus confusing to fiddle with (kind of like how I feel about macs sometimes, if that makes sense!) But I'll show you how to use Azureus on a mac, and I'm sure it's basically the same on a PC.

So, here's a smarmy, colourful, and hopefully clear and helpful guide to torrenting the best show in the universe.

I have a mission for you, Daria fans.

I need to bring in an example of satire for a homework assignment for english, and I want to bring in a Daria quote.

Looking through the transcripts, I can find some good examples but I was wondering if anyone else knew of a good example of how Daria is a social satire.

Esteemers [23 Apr 2007|12:30pm]

Psychologist: Now Dara, let's see if you can make up a picture as vivid as your sister's.
Daria: It's Daria.
P: I'm sorry Daria. What do you see in the picture Dara.
D: A heard of beautiful wild ponies running free across the planes.
P: Uh- there aren't any ponies. It's two people.
D: Last time I took this test they said they were clouds. They said they could be anything I wanted.
P: That's a different test. In this test they're people and you tell me what they're discussing.
D: It's a guy and girl and they're discussing a heard of beautiful wild ponies running free across the plains.

Mr DeMartino: Okay class. Who can tell me which war manifest destiny was used to justify? Kevin?
Kevin: Vietnam War?
Mr DM: That came a little later Kevin. 100 years later. A lot of good men died in that war. I believe we owe it to them to at least get the century right!
K: Uh... Operation Watergate?
Mr DM: Son, promise me you'll come back and visit me someday when you've got the Heisman Trophy and a chain of auto dealerships and I'm saving up for a second pair of pants!

Jake: What about you Daria? How was your first day?
Daria: Well, my History teacher hates me cause I know all the answers but there are some interesting idiots in my class.

Mr. O'Neill: Uh... you. What's a daydream you'd like to see come true?
Daria: Uh well, I guess I'd like to do something together.
Mr. O: Excellent!
Daria: Something that will really make them suffer.

Helen: It seems she has low self-esteem.
Jake: What?! That really stinks Daria!
Helen: Easy Jake. Focus. We tell you over and over again that you're wonderful and you just don't get it! What's wrong with you?!

Mr. O'Niell: Esteem? A-teen? They don't really rhyme do they? The sounds don't quite mesh. And that in fact is often the case when it comes to a teen and esteem. The 2 just don't seem to go together. But we're here to begin realizing your actuality. Each and everyone one of you will be able to stand proudly and proclaim I AM!

Guy: So, like what do you like to do after school?
Quinn: Oh, nothing special. Go to the movies or like a theme park or out for a really fancy meal now and then. And maybe go to a concert if I know somebody who's got good seats and is renting a limo.

More later...

My favourite Daria quote is probably:
Mr. DeMartino: Why couldn't I have been born during an influenza epidemic? Why did I survive, grow tall and strong, only to squander all my potential by becoming a TEACHER!

LOVE [21 Apr 2007|10:15pm]

[ mood | calm ]

Kevin - My knee! (screams)

Jane - Uh-oh, I think the wild one's got a boo-boo.

(Kevin continues groaning)

Jeffy - Hey, you broke the Tommy Sherman Memorial Tree.

Joey - Good thing he's dead or he'd really let you have it.

Jane - This is sort of like what happened at my fourth birthday party, only it involved a tiny tricycle and a chimp.

Daria - The difference being?

(at the Thompson house)

(Kevin and Brittany are sitting in his bedroom, which is decked out in all sorts of football paraphernalia; his knee is heavily bandaged)

Brittany - Oh, Kevvy, I don't care if you squished the Tommy Sherman Memorial Tree. I still love you.

Kevin - Tommy Sherman was the greatest Q.B. Lawndale ever had. I, too, was a quarterback once. Now I'm just a... one-knee guy.

Brittany - But your knee will heal.

Kevin - When? Face it, Britt, you've got cheerleader-type active womanly needs. And look at me... look at me! Kissing me now would be like kissing one of those guys who wear old man pants and watch Touched By an Angel.

(he starts removing his shoulder pads)

Brittany - Kevvy, no!

Kevin - Babe, it's gotta be this way.

Brittany - No! It can be like before. Let me bring you a Gatorade.

Kevin - No! Only sportsmen can drink sports drinks. (tosses Gatorade out the window) From now on, I drink Yoo-Hoo.

Brittany - No...! (starts crying)

(at school)

(the usual students are in Mr. O'Neill's class, with the notable absence of Kevin)

Brittany - Then he said that his armpits would know only the embrace of his crutches.

Jodie - What does that mean?

Brittany - I don't know, but it sounds bad. Like, Kevvy's armpits have feelings, but not for me. Now what do I do with lips so empty, so yearning?

Jodie - Lips? So, we're off the armpit thing?

Daria - You know, if you break up Brittany's attempt at thought, it looks like a Mystik Spiral song.

Jane - (grabs Daria's notepad) "Armpits have feelings, but not for me. Now what do I do with lips emp-ty?" Eh. Are you sure you don't want to replace "lips" with "skull?"

Daria - It's a work in progress.

Mr. DeMartino - Well, forgive me if I didn't see the sign on the door that said girls' exorcism room!

(tires squealing)

Helen - Oh, dear, your father's braking with his angry foot again.

Quinn - If we moved to a popular town, he'd be happier.

Helen - Quinn, we're not moving.

Jake - That's it, we're moving! Look at this -- it say Lawndale High's football team is the worst in Lawndale history. It says Lawndale High is a school for losers!

Helen - Jake, that's the Lawndale Shopper. It's written by an 80-year-old man who, if you recall, had to be taken off his roof by the fire department because he thought he was being chased by screaming mice.

Jake - That doesn't mean it isn't true.

Quinn - Oh, Daddy, mice don't scream.

Daria - Yeah, you're thinking of lobsters. Who's up for seafood?

Jake - The value of our home... destroyed. Our life's investment... gone! Good-bye, retirement. Good-bye, condo on the golf course. Helen, we're ruined! Don't you see?!

Helen - I see you shopped angry again. Now what are we going to do with five pounds of... "Jay-Tees' Jellied Pork Shoulder?" Ecch...

Artie - You go to Lawndale High, right?

Jane - No. We're reform school gals looking for love in all the wrong places.

And that's how I've saved countless youth children as a walking safety don't. And when kids are about to do something dangerous, they go, "Hey, I don't want to do this. I want to be like that cool safety guy."

Brittany - He'd be such a wonderful father.

Daria - Of a coconut.

Kevin - Now, my crutches are like my best feature.

Daria - Taking over the role formerly played by his car.

Jane - Well, this plan backfired perfectly.

Mr. DeMartino - Kevin, that report was peachy!

Kevin - Thanks.

Mr. DeMartino - Although what it has to do with the League of Nations, which was your assigned topic, I fail to understand!

Kevin - I mean, what's saving lives if there's no one to make out with?

Daria - I believe Gandhi asked that same question.

Jane - It's why he had to be eliminated.

(of a planted medical crutch) Brittany - I wonder why it isn't blossoming?

Daria - Did you take the little rubber thing off the bottom?

Brittany - Oh!

Jane - Oh, mmm, Daria? Maybe we should go inside before lightning strikes you dead and bits of you mess up my nice shoes.

Cheerleaders - We're not losers! We're not losers! We're not losers! Lawndale rules!

Jane - Brittany worked all week writing that.

Tom - It shows. The reiteration? Powerful.

Daria - Like getting hit in the head repeatedly with a sock full of quarters.

My plan to get Daria on DVD [11 Apr 2007|08:07pm]

[ mood | blank ]

I would like to start an email campaign. Many shows have gotten released and even brought back due to rabid fans sending so many emails that the servers crashed. I'm asking everyone here to get everyone you know who would be willing to do this and have them send emails to Mtv everyday until Daria is released in its entirety.

[02 Apr 2007|07:21pm]

shit, I'm a day late. well anyway:

New, here. [07 Feb 2007|08:57pm]


I love Daria; the queen of teen sarcasm and the sworn cynical enemy of overloaded teen angst. God, I miss that series so much. The quotes really made my day.

Here's my contribution:

TEEN BOY: Where have you girls been all our lives?
DARIA: Waiting for you. We were born in this room. We grew up in this room. And we're going to die in this room, alone.

TRENT: Do you ever feel like you’re wasting your life, Daria?
DARIA: Only when I’m awake.

MR. O'NEILL: Right here and now, let’s pledge to make Daria’s dream a reality.
DARIA: You mean the one where people walking down the street burst into flames?

The Daria Diaries [20 Nov 2006|08:38am]
So... I've had this book for ages and decided almost as long ago that I was going to post my favorite quotes... then I kept not doing it. So I'm doing it now in my small effort to try a tiny revival of this community. *sigh*

Brittany (in a letter to Kevin): Don't you know that girls who actually PLAY sports instead of CHEERING for GUYS who play sports are bad news with a capital T!

(description of Mr. Demartino): Beneath his gruff exterior, he's a puppy dog. A rabid puppy dog.

Jesse (Trent's best friend, the one who plays guitar in Mystik Spiral for those who don't know): Practice makes perfect. And leather pants don't hurt.

Daria: Smart is not a four-letter word. That would be smar

(on a note)

Darling - Those aren't spitballs... they're delicate projectiles of love."

Daria: Occassionally I think about doing something to change my situation, but where am I going to get hold of a Stealth Bomber?

Daria: The future is an enormous question mark, and I don't know what lies ahead. I only know that if it moves, I'm shooting it.

Quote Help [23 Apr 2006|07:23pm]

I was just wondering if any of you can remember a quote I have been having trouble with.

It involves Jane & Daria going into Trents room, and it is something like he has been sleeping for 3 days straight... I don't know! But he finally wakes up and I do believe he says our favourite line "Heyyyyy Daria"

No idea what episode/series. I have searched and searched!

Help would be much appreciated =)

[Counselor holds up a picture of two people talking]
Quinn: Let's see... they've been going out for awhile, and he's upset because other people keep asking her out, and she saying she can't help it if she's attractive and popular, and besides, nobody ever said they were going steady, and if he does want to go steady he's got to do a lot better than movie, burger, back seat, movie, burger, back seat, because there are plenty of guys with bigger back seats waiting to take her someplace nice!
Mrs. Manson: Now, Dora, let's see if you can make up a story as vivid as your sister's.
Daria: It's Daria.
Mrs. Manson: I'm sorry... Daria. What do you see in the picture, Dara?
Daria: Um... a herd of beautiful wild ponies running free across the plains.
Mrs. Manson: Uh, there aren't any ponies. It's two people.
Daria: Last time I took one of these tests they told me they were clouds. They said they could be whatever I wanted.
Mrs. Manson: That's a different test, dear. In this test, they're people and you tell me what they're discussing.
Daria: Oh... I see. All right, then. It's a guy and a girl and they're discussing... a herd of beautiful wild ponies running free across the plains.

Daria: And then you open the window and say, "Life is a meaningless descent into the void." Then you jump, and on the way down you scream, "Now I understand, I understand everything."

Jane: Can you get rid of the window part and give me something funny to say? And a poodle. I'd really like to be in a scene where I'm walking a poodle.

Daria: Actors.

Jane: Am I missing something?
Ms. Morris: The team needs you, and you need the team... IF you don't want to be here taking math again this summer.

Alison: Why go to an artist's colony if you're not going to mingle with your fellow artists?
