Winterlude picspam (again)

Quick and dirty picspam as I wait in the airport TO GO SOUTH YES! I went last weekend with [info]paraka and it was beautiful!

Well that was special

I was supposed to do another Winterlude post tonight. Instead, I ended up watching Georgy Girl for the first time. I had no idea. All I can say now is how happy I am to be living in this time/place, where even if misogyny is still rampant, it's hard to get away with touting babynapping and marrying an elderly lech because he's rich as a happy ending for a homely girl.


I hear ya, sister.

Ground Control to Major Tom

This is really wonderful. First-ever earth-to-space musical collaboration..



If you're following Commander Hadfield's tweets, (or have been anywhere near Canadian news for the past month) you've probably already heard about the making of this song. (And if you aren't following him on twitter, you should be. He posts the most amazing photographs from orbit!) Here's a bit more about the collaboration: 10 Things You Need to Know Before the Premiere of Is Somebody Singing. And here's the story of yesterday's chat with Capt. Kirk. :D

I feel very sappy about this whole experiment. Space exploration is something I've always enjoyed in science fiction, but never considered on a practical level. Hearing music written, practiced and performed while one person is in space and the other is on earth... it just made the thought of living somewhat normally so far above the earth a little more possible. It's made me dream.

Have you taken the Internal Citizenship Test yet?

I'm not surprised that I got this result.



Now I just need to get a lovely little place in Christianshavn. And learn Danish.

2012 in review

Dec. 14th, 2012

Hobbity stuff

Saw it. LOVED it. Want to go again!

Also adore this review: "I have no idea what film the “meh” crowd of critics saw, but it must not have been The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey..." It handily dispenses with all the reviews by the cranky begrudgers. And I appreciate that.

Review: W.E.

Heaven knows I'll watch anything about Wallis Simpson and Edward. I even enjoyed that nonsense that Steven Campbell-Moore and Joelly Richardson did a few years back. So I'd been wanting to see W.E., Madonna's directing/scriptwriting debut, since it came out. I just watched it, and... I am confused.

Got plans for the weekend?

If you find yourself at loose ends tomorrow/Sunday, why not join [info]aldiara and me for our semi-annual Drabble Day Challenge? Each hour starting at 2pm EST/7pm GMT, we'll be posting a new prompt - and this year promises to be even more fun because they're all going to be fandom tropes and clichés. All fandoms and all pairings are welcome. So drop by [info]drabbleday for one drabble or twenty-four, or any number in between.

Strength comes from within. And from guns.

I’ve just finished watching Battlestar Galactica. Overall it was epic, although I do think the series dragged on a bit too long. What I enjoyed most were the characters – the battles got repetitive and the politics were a bit silly – but some of the characters were outstanding.

M.I.A.

If anyone's wondering, this is where I've been. And will be for the rest of today.



eta: Gah! Starbuck was only mildly annoying until Season 2, then they had to whip out the ol' trusty "you're special, you have a destiny" line. Why, people, why?

eta2: I just got a skype spam from someone who's been searching for someone with my name and believes it is the will of God/Allah for us to meet on skype. For a moment I was tempted to ask if he was an angel of God sent to see my through to the end of mankind. Just afraid I might freak out if he said "yes."

eta3: Stupid show. Stupid Gaius, with your stupid "I miss sports" speech and your stupid too-late declaration of love to Six/Gina. Stupid Bill and your stupid kiss with Laura with her stupid stupid cancer. This was not supposed to happen. This was supposed to be a quick run-through a show that everybody else had seen so I could be nonchalant when they told me how great it was. I was not supposed to have all these uncontrollable FEELS.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALDI!



(Is this creepy? I hope this isn't creepy...)

As you know, your birthday falls in October, not November as otherwise scheduled. Therefore your present (which would have been late anyway, considering the unfortunate fact that I have to rely on Canada Post rather than a Tardis for delivery) are now going to be doubly late. I hope that the Doctor and Sisi can keep you entertained until it arrives.

AND I HOPE YOU HAVE THE MOST FABULOUS BIRTHDAY EVER! AND THE BEST YEAR EVER AHEAD OF YOU! I LOVE YOU! <333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333

Brain Need Coffee

You know you've been watching too much Doctor Who when you go to Google's news page, see entries about last night's USVP debate, and wonder why CBS is talking about the Tardis:

I need a Red Flag icon...

[info]torino10154 posted a political meme. I couldn't resist.



I just wish someone who understood political-economic history would write these quizzes. I am shuddering at the thought of being called an "Economic Liberal" - that's about as far from socialism as you can get.

Angel, you suck like the worst kind of terrible sucking thing

And maybe Liza-Lu doesn't want to marry you!



(Sorry, that's as coherent as my thoughts get after watching Tess of the D'Urbervilles.)
