** Sense8, has anyone watched this? I've already downloaded the series but I'm going to save it for my trip at the end of July. I really kinda wanna watch it right now before I get too spoiled

** I've read so much Matt/Foggy fanfic, I'm at the point of checking AO3 daily for updates. And, for once, I don't care about the rating or if it's slash, pre-slash, gen, brotp etc

** I also want Daredevil season 2 like right now

** Works sucks and it's June. Our busy season gets longer every freaking year.

** Mockingjay Part 2 trailer looks awesome!!!!

** I miss Chinese food. Seriously. I have a craving for good dim sum that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. My office is surrounded by Japanese and Korean food. Yeah, there's some Chinese restaurants close to me but they either are in a food court (only when desperate) or they lean more towards a fusion style. And I can't cook for shit. Basically wah wah wah I want my mom to cook for me :(

** Travel plans! Northern Europe & Russia at the end of July! Alberta over Labour Day weekend! Chicago to hang with Lori & Becky in October! Maybe another NYC trip in Oct/Nov! (that would be dependent on the state of Broadway)

** Due to above travel plans, I will be missing FanExpo this year. I was already bummed cause Jenna Coleman, Hayley Atwell and Tyler Posey were already announced. Since then, Billie Piper, Karen Gillan (who cancelled last minute last year because of filming) and the Weasley twins from HP have been added. Every time I get an e-mail update announcing another guest, it hurrrrrrrrrts.

** The thought of diving back into Supernatural over the summer has been floating around my brain lately. If I do, I'm thinking of starting at the very beginning cause I really don't remember much anymore

** One of my New Year Resolutions was to purge and de-clutter my life. It's June and I've barely made a dent *sigh* Donated most of my movie DVDs and a bunch of books (which have already been replaced with new books *double sigh*) and sold some CDs. But I need to do more! Hopefully, this weekend will be the weekend I get off my lazy ass and clean out my closet (seriously there are clothes that I haven't worn in 5+ years that are taking up space!) and then I need to tackle The Stuff. I have too much Stuff and I need to be brutal and trash/recycle away.

gilmore girls reunion

Awwwww look at them! I'm so glad Jared was there :) Totally didn't even recognize Zac and Brian! Sookie and, of course, Richard, are missed. I believe the actual panel is tomorrow and here's hoping that someone will record & share.

darren as hedwig

Darren will be taking on the role in Hedwig and the Angry Itch in a few weeks. I've got my ticket of course! A commercial has been released




The main thing I noticed is that the photoshoot/commercial is giving Hedwig!Darren a much more pretty-fied look with the soft lighting and white background. If you look at the previous Hedwigs, especially NPH and Andrew Rannells, they're more sweaty and gritty.

Here's my confession: as a musical, my interest in Hedwig is like non-existent LOL Never watched the movie. Even after seeing the show last year, I had (and still have) no interest in listening to the soundtrack. The only reason I went to see it was because of NPH and Darren is the only reason I'm going again. The things we do as fans, right?

LA

*wipes dust off* *sneeze sneeze*

AHEM let's see if I remember how this thing works. Apologies to Lori for taking 6 months to post my LA pics.

a bunch of pics with a little commentary cause my memory is shitCollapse )

fanexpo '14 - year of the doctor

Once again, I planned on skipping FanExpo. And once again, they announced guests that I had to see. This year, it was Matt Smith and Arthur Darvill (Karen Gillan too but she cancelled last minute). Spent a lot of time on my feet helping out at my cousin's booth. I was dead tired by Sunday afternoon. Thank heavens Monday was a holiday. I already know I'm going next year - a friend of mine really wants to meet Stephen and chances are very good he will be there.

They keep changing the celebrity autograph area layout and this year, well, it was impossible to get any pics of the celebs unless I went to their panel. I went to 3 panels: Matt Smith, Doctor Who (Matt & Arthur) and Stephen Amell. My photo ops were with them as well.

Matt Smith





Matt Smith & Arthur Darvill (I find Arthur ridiculously good looking that it annoys me)






Stephen Amell (total sweetheart)

canada's east coast trip

Wow, I am one lazy mofo. I came back from this trip 2 weeks ago. I uploaded the pictures days ago. Procrastination queen.

So, I took a bus tour out to the east coast aka Maritime provinces (not including Newfoundland). My family did a roadtrip out east probably like 30 years ago so I don't remember too much and I've always wanted to go back.

Warning: This is one long ass post.

Ontario --> Quebec --> New Brunswick --> Nova Scotia --> Prince Edward Island --> New Brunswick --> Quebec --> OntarioCollapse )

can't decide

My brother & SIL did the same photoshoot for baby Nicholas as they did for Juliana including adorable shots of the 2. I want to print and frame one of them but I can't decide. Help!

crazy but fun (and quite tiring) week

Wednesday Lady Gaga concert! I went with a co-worker who's never been to a big spectacle concert before and has always wanted to see Gaga. This is my 3rd time seeing her in concert (and most likely my last cause ticket prices are ridic). I have to say she's looking much healthier. There were 2 older - at least 60-something - ladies seated beside us and they were dancing and enjoying themselves, loved it! Stage not as elaborate as the previous tours but still lots of costume changes. Have some pictures:





Also took a bunch of video



more gaga videos under the cutCollapse )

Friday & Saturday Flew to Chicago for Chris Colfer's book signings of his 3rd book in The Land of Stories series. I met up with fellow Gleeks/Klainers for dinner on Friday night and then the signing -- Lori, I totally shook his hand, soft but cold! -- went out for drinks afterwards. I ended up driving to Heather's (the girl with whom I stayed with) and on the way back, I went right over a pothole which blew out the tire! I didn't even see the pothole, it literally happened just as I was changing lanes and checking over my shoulder. Heather had AAA but it took almost a hour. We killed time reading *really* bad fanfic and glaring at police/security as they drove by THREE times without stopping!

I did the 2nd signing on my own as Heather went to Dashcon (which turned out to be a clusterfuck, boooo). Actually talked to him a bit this time, told him I flew in from Toronto (he said he's trying to get up to Canada but I'll believe it when I see) and both him & Alla (his PR) asked if I was at the signing the day before. Most fans freak out when they're recognized; I felt creepy lol. Anyway, here are my extremely crappy pics




Went directly to the airport from the signing. Knew I was early but was informed upon check-in that my flight was delayed. For 3 hours. I ended up spending almost 6 hours in O'Hare. Lovely.

Sunday Queen+Adam Lambert concert with a couple fellow Klainers, Ali & Sam. Had a light dinner and then walked down to the ACC. I must confess, it wasn't my favourite concert. I only recognized about half of the Queen songs. Adam sounded AMAZING but I expected a lot more, I dunno, energy(?) from him. And, I'm sorry, but 5 minute long guitar solos are just not my thing. I can appreciate the talent but after a couple of minutes, it just starts to sound like noise to me. I really liked how they incorporated video of Freddie throughout the show. Ali & Sam really enjoyed themselves so I'm glad about that.

Here are a couple of pics and a bunch of videos:

3 days later and I'm still trying to catch up on sleep :) I have no plans for the next 2 weeks and I look forward to doing absolutely nothing.

look ma! i'm posting

What's been happening the past few months...

Fandom. Klaine/Glee is still my primary fandom. The next season - which will be a short one - will be its last. I don't have another fandom to go to! I'm on the fringes of a few -- Teen Wolf, Arrow, The Flash (omg I am so EXCITED about this show), Marvel universe, Sherlock, Doctor Who, I miss Eleven already but really looking forward to Twelve -- but nothing is sticking *sigh* I'm still reading tons of Merlin fanfic though. Man, I miss that show. Right now, my tumblr dash is full of Orange is the New Black because S2 was just released. I just watched the pilot this morning and I will definitely be continuing on.

Real Life. Working the same job at the same place. Blergh. I did get moved into an office though. We hired someone back in February and there really is a lack of space. I ended up moving into an empty office but it's temporary as that office has been designated for a to-be-hired project manager. However, it looks like the hiring process has hit a snag so yay for me! Looked into the possibility of purchasing a condo for investment purposes. And then I saw the prices and holy crap. Obviously, I want certain locations where rental prospects are high which, of course, means higher prices and basically, I can afford like a bachelor. I was so lucky that I purchased my own place when I did cause the market started to swing up the next year and it hasn't really stopped.

Family is doing fine. My brother & SIL are expecting baby #2 (it's a boy!) real soon. I think she's due end of June. We actually have tickets for The Lion King on Father's Day so she better not go into labour at the show! And little Juju is growing up fast and remains fucking adorable. here are pictures of jujuCollapse )

Travel. Original plan for this year was to join a tour covering Finland, Norway, Sweden & Russia. A co-worker of mine took the tour last year and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the timing wasn't good so that's been pushed to (hopefully) next year. Instead, my 'big' trip is a bus tour to the eastern provinces. I've only been once, way back in my early teens, and I've always wanted to go back. In addition, Rina, Anj & I are planning on LA for a few days in October so yay for that!

Last month, Anj & I went to NYC. We saw The Cripple of Inishmaan starring Daniel Radcliffe and Hedwig and the Angry Itch with Neil Patrick Harris. Both shows were excellent. Our seats for Cripple were so close to the stage! There was no orchestra pit in this theatre so first row was literally right up to the stage. We were in 2nd row. I thought Daniel was great. The character he plays has cerebral palsy and the control he had over his body, I thought, was amazing. The play itself was pretty good, a little difficult to understand with the Irish accents & slang. A couple of twists & turns at the end which I did not see coming. NPH as Hedwig was fantastic. How he performs the majority of the show in those heels, I will never know. But Lena Hall, the co-lead, blew me away. Holy crap, the pipes on her! We never did the stage door for Daniel cause it was just too crowded. Ended up doing the Hedwig stage door the day after so I was able to get NPH & Lena's autograph. In addition to theatre, we also did the hop-on hop-off bus plus river cruise. It's been a long time since I did the whole tourist-y NYC thing so that was fun. nyc picturesCollapse )

In April, over the Easter weekend, I visited my tumblr friend, Heather, in Chicago. Visited Cloud Gate (or the Bean). That area of downtown was pretty dead on a Saturday yet so many people around Cloud Gate. It was like a people magnet. Went to see Buckingham Fountain but unfortunately, the water wasn't turned on yet :( We took a river cruise. Walked around Magnificent Mile (I saw a really pretty Tory Birch bag but I didn't buy it, go me! omg it's on sale right now, I want it!!!!). Drove by Wrigley Field and ate some deep dish pizza. How do people eat this?! The sheer amount of cheese blew my mind. We got a small for the 2 of us and I managed only 1 slice. During the river cruise, the guide would point out certain buildings that were featured in movies. I only cared about one in particular and I recognized it immediately -- can anyone guess? chicago picturesCollapse )

getting excited



Love this cover! Can't really remember what happened during the tv show though. Guess that means a marathon is in my future!
