Random fandom

I'm not getting comments from my journal emailed right now (at the very least they're delayed for hours), so in case you didn't see, I made some request icons. I may make more from the caps already provided, and I'm leaving the post open for now (if I decide to close requests I'll do the whole strikethrough thing. But not the way LJ did the whole strikethrough thing. Because that way madness lies.)



My Heroes s1 DVDs shipped today. I found this rather surprising, considering the fact that I still haven't gotten a shipment notification for Ugly Betty s1, which is coming out the week before. On Tuesday, to be exact.

And I didn't hear anything about FNL, which is the one I kinda need in order to catch up before season 2 starts.

But hopefully, Dexter s1 will get here tomorrow. I can't wait to rewatch it in DVD quality.



This influx of new vids has gotten the old flist talking, and even made me think about Collapse )

I watch way too much TV. Good thing Smith was cancelled. *deletes*

I was really worried about the avi files looking like crap on my new TV, but they really really don't. In fact, they look amazing. I mean, as amazing as a downloaded file can look, anyway. I'm a very happy camper.




Yesterday I was waiting for a friend to call me back and tell me she was ready to go to IKEA, so I started translating an episode of Conan. The first two guests weren't all that interesting (I was crossing my fingers for John Krasinski, because I knew he was just on the show), but total score on the musical guest: The Decemberists! Yay!



I made a bunch of icons yesterday and today, and I uploaded them to my Scrapbook, where I promptly realized that it's impossible to find them (I do wish there were options for sorting images), so I created a new album where I'll upload all the new ones I make and then I'll move them after a month or so.

I'm feeling chatty

My Green Wing season 2 DVD set came around lunch time, and I think that's it for the DVD set season. I've still got some stuff I'm contemplating buying, but they're mostly sets where I'm biding my time until I can find them really cheap.

My neck problems from a few weeks ago didn't really subside until this week (because I couldn't find a way to work without hurting it. I finally found one - sitting/half-lying down on the couch) so now I've got this huge backlog of stuff to cap that I meant to do before the season premieres. Collapse )

I also updated my caps post and my DVD list yesterday, since I've a) taken down all my caps from my Photobucket account and b) bought a lot of movies and a few DVD sets this month (A Christopher Guest collection to appease Natasha, Rushmore, Twelve Monkeys, Persuasion (BBC mini), Northern Exposure s3, Scrubs s4).



I'm all caught up with Collapse )



I finally caved this morning and fixed up my journal somewhat. I just couldn't take that Generator layout anymore, especially not the weirdness of the banner in the background. Pattern is from Thia, I just modified it somewhat by making it gray-scale and I think I also resized it.

I think I'll probably return to my previous style soon though. The only problem I have with the standard commenting page is that it doesn't say how many comments there are in an entry, but since I often use that to see if there have been new comments while I've been replying to a comment, it frustrates me to no end.



I love private torrent sites because getting an episode in three minutes? That's just tailor-made for my patience level. But they can be a bitch too, because it's almost impossible to maintain a good upload ratio since everyone is uploading. I've found that the only way to really get that ratio up there is by finding the torrent within an hour of it going up. You'll be one of the first ones with a complete copy and you can just seed all day.

Speaking of finding torrents, where's the Studio 60 torrent?

Still bored. I resort to spam.

It's been about a month since the fall season really got under way, so I thought I'd do a recap of what's what and what's not. Viewable, that is.

(I'm just looking at this site, I can't really be sure they've got everything. But I think they do...except they don't have foreign shows, like Hex.)

HOLY CRAP, that was long. And rambly. Oh, and I wonder when Scrubs is returning...

Lots and lots of TV

Been watching a lot of new shows. And old ones too.

I've also been translating Alias season 4, and man, I'd forgotten how much I hate Syd's reaction to Jack killing Irina. Jack probably doesn't help matters by not explaining things, but you'd think after all they've gone through and all he's done for her she'd at least give him a chance. I mean, the man refused to give up his search for her even when it landed him in prison! Ungrateful little bitch... *grumble grumble*



And I've been rewatching Wonderfalls. I only meant to cap an episode, but then I started watching and soon I'll have seen them all again. Out of order, because apparently I wasn't willing to admit I was doing a rewatch so I skipped around.

I really do think Jaye is my favorite female character in a long time. Maybe my favorite female character ever. And the actress has a lot to with it, because she's the reason Jaye can be sarcastic, sad, shocked and happy all in the space of one scene and still be believable.

My favorite part about the show is Jaye's relationship with her family. How she starts off trying to act like they're just a nuisance and ends up realizing how much she loves and needs them. I love the whole screwed-up bunch and the thought of all the missed opportunities there makes me want to cry.

I think the only weakness, at least from my point of view, is Eric. I just find him boring. And I kinda 'ship him and Jaye in the same way I 'ship Mal and Inara - until something better comes along. I think it's the whole "they're destined for each other" thing that I fight against with every fiber of my being. Kinda funny since the whole show is about surrendering to destiny, but there you go.
