I Can't Look At You Straight On

Resurrecting old projects in preparation for NaNoWriMo. This one is entirely the fault of Hal Hartley. If any film school students out there fancy adapting this, you're more than welcome - just ask.

I think this might be the funniest thing to ever appear on Fandom_Wank.   Misha Collins has gleefully encouraged readers of his Twitter feed to embark upon a bizarre jigsaw-puzzle induced scavanger hunt.   I don't know what's better, the list of supremely silly objectives, or the fact that fans are actually going for it.  Personally, I like the bit that involves encasing a piece of the Berlin Wall in lime jello (19 points).

All links (including a link to the objectives) can be found here: www.journalfen.net/community/fandom_wank/1269755.html  (Just in case you were wondering, it made F_W because apparently a small number of fans are taking it too seriously? That sound you just heard was me, holding an authentic rhino puzzle piece and smacking my head off the wall in exasperation at fandom weirdness.)

take this sinking boat and point it home

Music rec of the week: Sarah Slean and NQ Arbuckle covering 'Falling Slowly'.
Man, is this ever a heartbreaker of a cover. I'm beginning to think that Neville Quinlan has a monopoly on big-hearted, generous vocals.


Happy 2011!

I have so much catching up on my flist to do, it's unbelievable. If I haven't posted comments or anything in the last two weeks though, it's because I was 1. Stuck at Heathrow airport for a week, and 2. Upon arrival in Hamilton, my computer promptly died.  2010 was pretty sucky for a variety of reasons though, so hopefully that was the apotheosis, and now 2011 will be great beyond all imagining :-) My parents and I rang in the New Year skating, with seven other random people, all strangers, down at the Bayfront Park, with giant sparklers and geese, so I think we're off to a pretty good start!
Wishing you all the best for this year, and take care!

Watching this, you can totally see why David Thewlis was cast as Lupin:  I don't think I've ever seen another interview where the interviewee seems so laid-back, genuine and good- tempered.  Also, I love the revelations that he a) grew up in a toy shop, and b) paid his twelve-year old neighbour in Harry Potter memorabilia to tell him what happened in all of the books after the Goblet of Fire.
Ladies and gentlemen: the nicest man in showbiz?


"I'll give you fireworks"

I have a feeling I'm going to be posting this video everywhere I can think of.  Carolyn Mark and N.Q. Arbuckle are my musical OTP forever and ever. Buckets of personality, great musical chops, and one of those spring-loaded tins of confetti.


Dear All,
Below the cut please find a very long and rambling entry. First paragraph is also spoiler-y for SPN 6x11. Just so you know :-) This icon is the epitome of appropriate referencesCollapse )

Has anyone else seen this?  I was going to work on my photography thesaurus, but I think I might need to go to the video store instead.

"When we go to war, we are all putting on hoods and pulling the hangman's lever. And as long as we send our armies on the rampage - whatever the justification - we will go on stringing up and shooting and chopping off the head of our 'criminals' and 'murderers' with the same enthusiasm as the Roomans who cheered on the men of blood in the Colosseum two thousand years ago."
