Meme and Teevee

What would we post about if we didn't have icon memes?


1. Reply to this post with "THE WEATHER'S DEFINITELY TURNED; I'VE ALWAYS LOVED THE AUTUMN," and I
will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Haven't had a chance to watch the second episode of The Americans yet so my comments from last week still stand.


And the reason why I haven't watched it is because I'm marathoning Shameless (US) and loving it! I'm almost done with season 2, so nearly caught up...

I bought a box set of the first five seasons of the British version a few years back when it was really cheap. Anyone watch it? How does it stack up against the American version?

Nothing to write about? Must be meme time!

My Semagic client still isn't logging into Livejournal. Ugh, LJ, what are you doing?!



Oh, also, I translated the EMAs this week, which means I got to translate my first bit of Korean in a professional capacity. (Can I just say that I love that the kpop fandom will have an English translation available on YouTube within hours?)

You know you're from Sweden when...

Collapse )

Well, that was a whole lot of stuff you never wanted to know about Sweden.



When I left for work this morning I was right in the middle of the last episode of Boys Over Flowers. Yep, I'm going to finish this puppy, no problem! And actually, the point where everyone else seems to have quit in disgust (about halfway through?) is when I started to become really really amused with the show. So it seems that I'm the one full of epic fail in this case, not the show. (Well, okay, maybe the show too.)

I think the reason I started enjoying it was that I finally just gave up caring about the main love triangle and instead started noticing things like Lee Min Ho's waddle (have you ever noticed that he holds his head really still when he walks, making him look very much like a duck on dry land? This cracked me up more times than it probably should have), and how fun the minor characters could be. Also, I got invested in the Yi Jung/Ga Eul 'ship for a while there, but then it got annoying with the long lost love thing, just like in Hana Yori Dango. Blech!


Being the productive employee that I am, I have spent several hours looking at Drama vids on YouTube this week, and stumbling upon a bunch of Coffee Prince vids have made me ache to rewatch it, so I'm probably going to be doing that soon.

I have so much to watch now (I can finally watch Capital Scandal!!!) that I don't even know where to start.

Summer is for catching up on TV - old and new

For some reason, May seems to be a big reading month for me. I read 25 books in May, but when June rolled around, my reading mojo started failing me, so instead I turned to Kdramas. I just finished Coffee Prince, so Personal Taste, here I come!

But that's not really going to occupy me for long, especially not at the rate I'm going. Therefore, A POLL!


Which of my unwatched DVD sets should I watch next?

Breaking Bad s1
6(9.0%)
Carnivàle s1-2
7(10.4%)
Deadwood s1-3
19(28.4%)
In Plain Sight s1-2
7(10.4%)
Secret Diary of a Call Girl s1-3
19(28.4%)
Shameless s1-5
3(4.5%)
The Tudors s1-2
6(9.0%)
You should buy the show I'll tell you about in the comments instead.
0(0.0%)

Screw those, instead you should be rewatching:

Annual Farscape rewatch FTW!
17(32.7%)
Rome - because everyone need a regular dose of nudity and carnage
6(11.5%)
Twin Peaks. Dwarfs. Log ladies. Pie. What's not to love?
5(9.6%)
Veronica Mars (and of course the only reason to get through season 3 is to finally finish capping it so you NEVER have to see it again.)
15(28.8%)
The West Wing. And hey, maybe this will be one of those rewatches where s5 doesn't make you homicidal!
9(17.3%)
Something else that I'll tell you about in the comments.
0(0.0%)



That's right, RADIO BUTTONS. Ticky boxes are for sissies.





Now that everyone else is finishing up their 30 days meme, I figured I'd start on mine. Though since I don't post often enough to finish this until 2012, I'm gonna do a few at a time and pretty much when I feel like it instead of in every entry. Collapse )

Icon meme!


Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this to your own journal using your own favorite icon.


(I'm actually thinking of making this icon my default, that's how much I like it...and how tired I am of my current default. =)

I was internet-less for almost a week and I've only now caught up (well, still one episode behind on Dexter, but other than that...), so I come bearing a meme:







And a few TV thoughts, while I'm at it:

I feel like I may have missed an episode of Castle somewhere along the line, so I think I'm going to track that down next.

Since I'm not making icon posts any more, I'm also not getting any feedback. And sometimes I miss it! So I participated in an icon meme:




Personally, my biggest problem with my icons is lack of originality. I keep iconing the same caps over and over (I just want an icon I love from a cap I love! But still - BORING). I feel like I'm never doing anything new, just the same old thing over and over (with varying results).



I'm sick. And it's like the worst week ever for me to be sick (pre-EMA programs with short deadlines that have to be done immediately), but I'm still staying home tomorrow to work. May not be the best for getting work done, but I need to not be at work when I'm feeling like this.

I thought I'd find myself some downloads of the new Emma mini series and really just wallow in my misery.



Two things I've loved lately:


  1. LJ's Note feature. I used to have the Greasemonkey script that basically did the same thing, but with this feature it doesn't just work on one of my computers, but all of them, and any other I might use. Score!

  2. VLC Player. Now, I know everyone's been raving about this player for years, but I've always preferred Zoom Player (for its playlist function, mostly). Well, I finally found something I love it for: IT REMOVES REGION ENCODING ON DVDs!!! I can switch between region 1 and 2 with impunity! This is so awesome, I can't even tell you. Now if the capping function was only a bit better (though the frame-by-frame stepping thing has already improved it by a factor of a about a million!) (Caveat: According to VLC developers, they can't guarantee that it removes region encoding, but it'll try!)
