Children of Earth: the Aftermath

Did I tell you that last night I dreamt I was getting a Janto tattoo? Very odd--apparently post Torchwood, JB and GDL set up a tattoo parlour together. I chickened out when I discovered that it was actually JB who was going to be holding the needlegun. YIKES! Yes, my subconscious, it is a place of oddness.

So in one last attempt to get this all out of my system, here's some thoughts that somehow turned into a mini-essay. Brain, stop it!

Torchwood Day Five

Thanks for nothing, RTD!

Torchwood Day Four

Jul. 7th, 2009

Tickled Tuesday

I am ridiculously tickled about this: David Tennant will be in the next St. Trinian's! (I do hope my gorgeous Head Girl is back for this one.)

Also in the ridiculously tickled department: Look at all the Merlin Big Bang stories and art! Wow! This is going to be incredible!

I'm still ridiculously tickled and reeling from the AWESOMENESS that was last night's Torchwood. I was going to write something about it, but others have already done it so much better, so all I'll add is is it tonight yet?!!!!!

(Oh, I lied, I have to add one other thing: when did Gwen get awesome? I know, she's got four more nights to revert, but damn! That thing she did with her hands... It's like the world's gone topsy-turvy!)

You have bewitched me, body and soul

OK, whatever you're doing right now, STOP and watch this instead. You can thank me later.

(Note: Unfortunately the sound's very quiet on the video so turn your speakers up.)

TW trailer

Warning: May induce uncontrollable flailing (esp. at 0:55) and prolonged periods of comatosity (is too a word, I said so). Do not imbibe if deadlines are looming.

OK, I'm hooked

The Russell Tovey Appreciation Hour was in full swing tonight. I don't think I've been that shaken by an episode of television in ... ever. Just daaaamn.

And on a totally different subject...

This has been around for awhile but I just discovered it (thanks [info]sarcastic_jo!): The Torchwood Stationary Hub. I truly love how much creativity there is out there. Fandom rocks!

A much longer post than I'd planned

First and most important: if you get the chance, try this. Because soooooo amazingly good. *slurps* Perfect for relaxing after what's been a crazy week.

But at least we have this bit of fun. I do so love when my fandoms cross!

I hope you're all all surviving the week. Stay warm and cozy. And if it's warm where you are, I do not want to hear about it!

I love my fandom

I heard there were some pics floating around from the Torchwood hub convention this weekend. I asked [info]sarcastic_jo to hunt them down. She came back a minute later...

Her: http://smirnoffmule.livejournal.com/52435.html
Her: oh. my.
Me: that first one!!!
Me: *loves JB's hair*
Her: dude
Her: skip down a few pics
Her: like ... now.
Me: i'm savouring
Her: no
Her: you want to skip
Her: and then go back up later
Me: GDL is adorable!
Her: you're obviously not skipping
Me: the hug??
Her: so ... you skipped.
Me: .............
Her: sorry...you want coherency when there appears to be tongue?

ETA: Oooh! More!

Dear John

It's a John Barrowman kind of day -- I cannot resist posting this picture:

(From a quite nice interview in the Daily Mail.)

And I watched the latest Heroes.
Umkay... )

Still massively crushing over the Alles Was Zaehlt and found what I believe is the only English fanfic ever written in this fandom. And I'm not tempted, no, not at all...

While I waste my life on television, technology marches on. Here's Google's latest attempt to help you out with Mail Goggles to keep you from sending those embarrassing late-night booze-inspired emails. What do you think? Would that have saved you? Personally, I think it'd be much more useful to have a name blocker on google to prevent late-night booze-inspired searches. Those are never a good idea.

ETA: Rudy's had an exceptionally energetic day today -- he's feistier than he's been since that whole experience with the vet a few weeks ago. I don't know if it's the cooler weather or what, but I'm glad of it.

My pretties!

Need some happy this morning? Head over to [info]omarandjohnny's Alles Was Zählt Super-Mega-Gigantisch Post! I've been plugging away at my work in 15-minute spurts today, taking lots of breaks to gaze at it. And thanks to her mad skilz I've got DeRo icons now!! *points up to the pretty*

Need more happy? Fajrdrako at LJ is posting lots of John Barrowman beauty, and I think it needs to be spread here: Here's his new video, which is absolutely gorgeous in its different depictions of love. And JB's pretty in an almost unearthly way. I just wish I didn't hate that style of music so much. And then for cuteness overload there's PUPPIES! You just get JB's voiceover here, but "Scotty" and the pups more than make up for it.

The Best Thing EVER!!

Deleted scene from "Meat":

Why oh why did they delete that?!!!! (Yes, the acting's stilted as all hell, but they could have done another take or twenty ... gotten them more comfortable with it ...)

Other deleted scenes from S2 are here.

Is it Saturday yet?

A few happier things

I don't know about the rest of you, but my online life hasn't been much of a refuge these days. Between the Open Sores Project (thanks, [info]mirabile_dictu for that wonderful term), Oh John Ringo No, and assorted other idiocy, I've started and then deleted I don't know how many posts over the past few days. I hope that I can actually finish one soon, but I'm trying hard not to just throw out more negativity, which I really can't stomach right now.

In light of that, I would like to bring you some happier news:

Migrating and squees

A few people who just ventured over from LJ have mentioned that it's quieter over here. That made me smile. It was really quiet when I first got here too. Over the months, that's slowly changed. My flist isn't quite as big as it was at LJ, but they're definitely more talkative -- thank goodness I had yesterday off, since I spent practically the whole day responding to comments!

I guess what I'm trying to say is don't give up. Community doesn't happen overnight. When you first joined LJ it probably didn't think feel very active either -- I know it took me a while to make the right connections. But I think you'll get out of it what you put in. And there's a chance to build something new here, which has been really enjoyable.

I don't have a clue whether the strike had any effect, but the hostility surrounding it has really turned me off LJ. Whatever. I'm finding myself not caring too much. I'm discovering that the less time I spend over there, the less stressful my life is, and I like that. And I can follow LJ's cock-ups with amusement instead of feeling like my online world's being threatened. (Speaking of, [info]strangemuses has a hilarious recap of the latest. I almost feel sorry for LJ. Almost.)

But now, back to what we're here for -- SQUEE! Loved loved LOVED last night's episode of Torchwood. Spoilers? )

It's a gorgeous day out today -- sunny and only -2, which is a welcome change. I really should go out for a bit instead of watching yet another episode of Hustle...

I do love a good Friday night

Tonight we're celebrating! [info]sarcastic_jo just finished the long-awaited conclusion of Shade of Ianto and hopefully will be posting later this evening. If you haven't read the previous chapters, what are you waiting for?

Meanwhile, I've been struggling with the ending of my latest fic -- I knew how it was going to end, but every line I needed to get there was like pulling teeth. It's that darn completion thing, I dread it so. But this afternoon, walking back from the wine store, the ending hit me like a snowball in the gob. Now the first draft's done, just needs an edit and a beta and it'll be ready to go!

So this eve we're watching Transformers to celebrate. I haven't been to keen to see it -- this isn't my childhood, I don't even know what a transformer is -- but she swears it's cheesy fun. With enough wine, I'm sure it will be!

RE: that movie meme. You guys are good! You got almost all of them. There are just a few left, with more hints this time. Have another go? )

A pimp post

Okay, first things first:

I'm excited about this -- it's a little different than the free-for-all that was Bring Back the Porn, with some really interesting prompts. Should be fun!

I'm all caught up on Torchwood and SGA now -- I feel like I've really accomplished something. At some point I need to write up my thoughts on just how much Gwen's behaviour irks me, both in endangering her teammates and being thoroughly unsuited for what she's asked to do at Torchwood. This is painfully apparent in comparing her with Tosh in the last two episodes. But that's going to take more brainpower than I have this morning, so instead I'll just rec [info]sarcastic_jo's wonderful tag for "Meat" called On Atlas' Shoulders.

(And I have to confess how envious I am that she can just belt out something like this in a day while I'm agonising over a paragraph!)

She also made this great icon, with my new favourite Ianto face.

Have a great Saturday, folks!

Torchwood: T minus 40 hours

Today's tingly place brought to you by Ianto Jones, teaboy extraordinaire.

Honestly, the boy needs more lines in the show.
