Go forth and squee!



In other news, I've seen screencaps of Misha on Tumblr many times and yet cannot find the original video. So, guys, where is this video?!?


Yeah, I do follow some of their blogs. But don’t tell them.

I did a picspam of Mal's recent-past scenes in Firefly's "Out of Gas". (Of course I did, it's 3 am!) It's nothing artsy - I just wanted to get the images and the story down, just as a quick "this is what happened" and "this is what it looked like" to accompany my All Things Copper fic. Obviously, there are massive spoilers. )

It's my favourite - well, of two - episode of Firefly. That is to say, I love this one because it breaks my heart (oh come on, you listen to Nathan's little whines of pain without crying), whereas I love Jaynestown because it is hi-larious. (Well, right until Jayne breaks my heart too.)

I've been on a Firefly rewatch binge, on account of my editing old Firefly stories. I'd forgotten how much I liked Jayne. (For entirely shallow reasons, sure, but they're such good reasons.)

I also recently watched the trailer for Mark Sheppard's new movie (and Sheppard senior too!) and was struck by a curious similarity. Well, alright, not so much similarity as "Oh look, he's behind a desk and being awesome! Oh look, here too!" If any man could swagger whilst sitting behind a desk, Mark is it. Shame I can't remember if we've ever seen Crowley sitting behind a desk. We didn't with Canton. Oh well, here is Mark Sheppard, sitting behind a desk in 2002 and 2011. Enjoy. )

So I just watched my Walking Far From Home fanvid and just realized that somehow, a clip-series was doubled. Like, there is a whole verse that's been doubled. This will have to be rectified. I just... *facepalm* And no one's said anything? I'm going to go hide under a rock in shame now.

I'm a bit better today, but the past few days have been pretty shitty in the emotional department, all Social Isolation Monkey and Random Crying and Anxiety and Extreme Boredom. Seriously, I've been going crazy.

I've been sunbathing, watching Firefly, and editing old unfinished stories for the anthology I'm working on for my ex-supervisor. Not much else happening apart from the, y'know, mental meltdown.

Oh, and I've petted some cats. That was nice.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to leave the retelling of today's adventures - with photographs! - to tomorrow and instead leave y'all with a fanmix of songs I put on repeat (why penguins? because, that's why) and links from Monday and Tuesday. Now excuse me, I need to get some shut-eye to wake up in the wee hours to catch the last metro due to Yet Another Goddamn Public Transportation Strike (National Edition). Argh.

Yesterday's meet-and-greet at Organization went well, even if my brain flatlined a few times and I found myself unable to string words together without stumbling over them. Apparently talking to someone I don't know makes me forget grammar and vocabulary in any language now. The person I spoke with gave me some suggestions - basically just to email people directly involved in projects I'd be interested in, saying, "hi! I'm here! if you ever need anyone! hi!" - and will circulate my CV around.

Today there was a nation-wide transportation strike, which meant I woke up an hour early to catch the last metro and waiting outside in the cold until I could get in the office. I started writing an SPN fic while I was at it, because apparently I can't finish fics. *sigh* Then, to get home, I decided to walk the hour back instead of wait around for four hours for the metro to start up again for a brief shining moment, or try and squeeze into any available bus and take three hours to get home like last time.

The rest of the day I spent working on a variety of fannish projects and watching Dharma and Greg. I was going to watch Paranormal Activity 2 tonight, but I figure it's a touch too late for that now.

In other news, my right eyelid's been twitching on and off for the whole day now, and it's really annoying. The Internet says I probably need more sleep, less caffeine, or less stress, to which I say, fat chance.

I'm slowly working my way through my WIPs. For example, I finally installed a video editing programme which is better than Windows Movie Maker and, hopefully, will not freeze everytime I look at it. The installation went by without a hitch, but now there's the problem that I have no idea how to use it. Instantly intuitive, it is not. For the moment, I'm going to stick with WMM because I finally have the omgworkonfanvideeee bug back, but I will, eventually, learn how to use the new programme. Once that's utterly dominated, I will be able to make a wee dent in my gigantic To-Do fanvid list. So while no progress was actually made, I've re-re-replanned out the last few verses and who knows, I might actually work on a line sometime this week. I will finish that bastard even if it's on my 90th birthday!

The muse for the written word continues to be MIA, but I'm making good progress on the screencapping-and-snarking project for Friday 13th. Yay progress! (Well, progress is easy when all you do is resize and adjust contrast, but still.)

What I have accomplished, however, is watching a lot of television and film. For example, I watched all of Dharma and Greg's season 2, and now I'm whipping thrugh Grandma's House because Simon Amstell is adorable and that's pretty all that passes through my head as I watch it. Oh, Simon, listen to your mum! Get back on Nevermind the Buzzcocks!

Also watched was Waitress which was very good, a bit sad, had VERY GOOD PIE OMG, and was completely misrepresented by the trailer. (Light romantic comedy my ass!) It's made quite a bit sadder by the fact that the director, writer and co-star was murdered shortly after.

Oh, and I finally got paid for the Actual Proper Work I did in January. I has bling! ...I has no plans for said bling.

bending_sickle: (Not funny (except it is))
I forgot to say yesterday that Palermo was awesome (and y'all will probably never see photos of it because I apparently suck at coming through on promises like that) but the rest of this week has been hellish. I got home Sunday night and there was no hot water and I'd been looking forward to a hot bath like crazy, especially since I'd had cramps all day I am not kidding. We got it fixed Wednesday, until then, cleanliness came in a bucket. The recently-boiled water was always too hot. Cue fist-shaking.

Then the electricity went out all afternoon on Wednesday, and the heating never came back, so it was a delightful 16.5 degrees in my room and there was a lot of huddling under the covers. I am so tired of being cold (and I said as much to Mom, who promptly snapped that she'd hoped I'd be "tired from something else (you lazy ass)").

The good thing, though, is that my internship supervisor's letting me take time out to look for a proper job. This is apparently a less depressive task when done in a proper office where I have to keep it together.

Quotes of the Day: Secret Diary of a Call Girl (3x7) & Castle (3x17)
Hannah: Sometimes you value least the people who love you most, until you remember that without them, your life is worth nothing.

Castle: He knows we're on a deadline, right?
Beckett: Yeah, he knows.
Castle: I mean a literal deadline. As in, you go over the line you're dead.
Beckett: Castle, can you just give him a chance?
Castle: I- I'm happy to give him anything he needs, it's the clock that's not cooperating.

This week seems to be the week of Good and Rarely-Had Food, considering yesterday's the chocolate mousse, huevos rancheros (fried eggs and fried corn flour tortillas? Heaven!) Plus, Dad brought home tamales this week because his office got together and ordered some made. I haven't had tamales since what was probably the last century, and these were alright. What I really miss from Mexico - apart from the deliscious sandwiches they made at my school shop and Pelón Pelo Rico - are falutas. Oh gods, what I wouldn't do for one of those... Today we continued the food trend with roast lamb, which is something we'd usually have in the summers in Spain and I'd wait for every year. Wee little lamb ribs are so deliscious! I don't care how cute they are!

In other - more international - news, Egypt is happening. In the more personal - potentially selfish - news version of this, because Egypt is happening, and other countries are also happening, the project I was working on - that job I had - has been cancelled. I'm going to get paid for January, but that's it. Back to the dead-end internship. *tries to kick self in the pants and get a move on with the job hunt* *fails miserably*

Yesterday I watched my first ever episode of Private Practice. I'd been seeing the promo for the episode all week for 4x7 and thought, well damn, that much drama has to be seen. I was a bit sad to see that Tim Daly wasn't as astoundingly hot as I remembered him from the Grey's Anatomy episodes 3x22-23 (but then, it's been 3 years). I mean, look at this sexy thing! embeded )

Well, the episode was good and dramatic and all that jazz but I stopped caring for a good long while because all I could do was flail and point and squee things that sounded like "Nicholas Brendon!" and "Xander!" Oh, it was so good to see him on the screen again! I haven't seen Nicholas in anything since Buffy ended, and it was so strange to see him even more grown up - where those grey hairs?!? Plus, it was absolutely delicious to see him be evil. I had a massive crush on Xander in early Buffy (well, until Angel swept me off my feet with the brooding angst). It was 1x06 The Pack that really kick-started the mad squee. (Even though it also peeved me the hell off because hyena packs are matriarchies and the males run away in terror from the females.) Even way back in 1997, I had a thing for lanky evil guys. Just look at the sexy! embeded )

Curious Sickle Fact: I always thought Nicholas Brendon looked a lot like Raine Maida (of the band Our Lady Peace), although this might have been influenced by my learning of the two's existence at the same time. However, the best evidence I can offer: Read more... )

Nano is getting a bit better. I zoomed through most of Chip's afternoon instead of detailing it, which was a huge relief, although the patrol bit was a bit of an uphill struggle. It was necessary, though, to get the whole Kryptonite! Reverse kryptonite! effect, but ye gods, did it hurt to get on paper. Now I've got a lovely Icarus and Chip scene, which is going to be angst, angst, angst. (And possibly snogging, I'm not sure.) And then it's just a hop and a skip away from the infected invasion from hell and Kezef! \o/

Sickle's "I can't be bothered to be coherent, have some bullet points instead" entry:

  • I totally had a freakout this morning about getting out of the house or finding something to wear or being on time or something. It wasn't pretty, but it wasn't cripling either. Just a lot of rapid breathing and self-coaxing and mild panic.

  • The cold that's been ravaging my parents this weekend has finally struck me down. My throat's got gnomes scratching their nails down it and my head's hot and squishy.

  • I watched Finding Home yesterday on YouTube because it had Misha. His long blonde hair phase reminded me too much of Karla to be comfortable at first and truly appreciate the view. I liked his character, although like most characters in that movie there wasn't much "character" to go around. I loved how soft-spoken he was, though. (Is there any incarnation of Misha's voice that I do not like? I think not.) The movie itself was decent enough, although you could tell from the story - how it was set up and how certain motifs were played out and repeated - that it was based on a story. Sometimes I felt like smacking the characters, though, and I found the sexual assualt scene incredibly upsetting for some reason, although it wasn't graphic. (I mean, it focused on the "woman fights man off desperately" rather than the "woman stripped and abused" aspect, and it never got too far anyway. I just found it so horrible.)

  • I'm somewhat bored. Although I have quite a bit of things to do, I can't seem to do them. I seem to suck at giving my days structure. I was going to write tonight, but the squishy-headedness and all isn't helping, so I think I'll rewatch Devour and snark at it in written form, which is something I've been meaning to do for a while.

  • I had my first sip of tequila tonight. It really was just a sip. It wasn't anything fantastic, and it burnt a bit, but dad had been going on about how it was the best tequila he'd ever had so I thought, "Hey, I've never tried it, so why not try a good version for the first time?"

Captives (1994) and a who's who in Doctor Who: I love this movie. I watched it way back in 2006 or 2007 - and if I could find the post I'd link it, alas - and just recently realized that, hey, I'd love to get my grubby hands on it again. So ta-da! I watched it last night instead of going to sleep at a regular hour - "Just a little bit," I promised, "just a scene or two" and then it was near 2 am and I was all a-squee.

I can't find a trailer for it on YouTube - it is from 1994, after all, the time of answering machines and cordless phones with antennae - but I'll give you a brief rundown and fanvid. Read more... )

Whilst watching it last night, I kept squinting and pondering and wracking my brain at a lot of the secondary actors, half-recognizing them. Imagine my surprise when it turned out that I knew them all from Doctor Who (or Torchwood, which is totally the same in my book). Read more... )

Social event yesterday went off splendidly. Met a charming Italian girl, a lovely Madagarscarian family, a Haitian/New Yorkian cameraman, a brilliantly entertaining English teacher and a not-house-renovator-but-renovates-houses Englishman.

And I bumped into a guy I met at the first event, who through a converation about Facebook and then blogs got really adamant that he google for my own blog, despite my saying HELL THE FUCK NO TO THAT SHIT. Repeatedly. Anyway, got home in teh wee hours - Dad was all, OMG! and Mom was just, Yay you social!

Today I sent out an application for a job and looked through a shitton of openings and found nothing. And I fixed up the Globo sapiens fanmix twice, because I am, apparently, a complete moron who double-checks everything except the actual music. And I've moved into a lovely cottage over at Echo Bazaar, so I guess progress is being made. And I finished Grey's Anatomy Season 5. Just two more! Then (or meanwhile, because who's to say I can't) Lie To Me, which I've been dying to watch properly ever since they started advertising it back when they were starting Season 1.

Also I had a dream where I was a wolf - or playing a artificial reality game where I was a wolf - and I was racing through woods and snowy mountains all :D until night came and the real live wolves came out growling so I was D: and running away. Well. I liked the running bit.

I did even less today than I did yesterday. Although I did go for a three-hour walk in a dress I'd only worn once back in 2001 and that a) finally fits me again, b) I figured I was allowed to wear on a summer afternoon in the city. I also called mom about picking her up at the train station (a short walk from home) but she was all, "Of course I'll call when I'm there!" and "Oh no no no no! Don't pick me up! (Go out, do things with friends you don't have!)" So which is it?

So I meme and channel surf desperately because not only is nothing interesting on, but it's the same nothing interesting as yesterday and on two channels each time. Also, I'm very upset and in withdrawal because they seem to have taken off Lie To Me. I mean, seriously, I finally get a constant influx of the awesomeness that is Tim Roth and they take it away? (Oh, how I loved Captives (1994) - Fanvid.) Damn, I really need to watch Lie to Me from the start. Meanwhile, the first of three Tim Roth is Super Cool compilations of his roles: Read more... )
