I don't post much on LJ anymore but some moments feel like they ought to be memorialized here, since they sort of started~ here. Like this one:



goldy_dollar and I went to the Wizard World Philadelphia con to see David Tennant and Billie Piper, which was completely surreal. That part is all a bit of a blur tbh -- for one brief moment in time David Tennant and I were touching each other which is truly the important thing lmao.

Adding to the surreality was that joining us to the con was bazat89 -- FINALLY after all this time I have seen Liz in the flesh! It was awesome and generally too brief. bluetooth16 was there too! I've met a lot of internet friends over the years but the combo of Liz + Amanda + David + Billie was something else.

I ALSO got stopped by someone named Claire who said she had read my LJ and my fic, which was awesome -- hi Claire!!!

ladyloves!

a f/f comment ficathon


On a not unrelated note, where are my Karen/Holly icons, internet? YOU'RE ALL BUSY MAKING GIFSETS ON TUMBLR, AREN'T YOU?


Not that I don't also appreciate your efforts on that front.


Also I saw the Legend of Korra finale. I might do a post later to try and put my thoughts together. The brief version [Spoiler (click to open)]is that like the whole series, I think there were some good things and some good ideas but an equal amount of strange/bad things and some rushed execution. For once I find myself actually thinking a show needed more episodes.

Okay so in the end I only watched ep 1, 3 and 5 of True Love, the first two because David Tennant and Billie Piper and the last one because a) Kaya Scodelario's character is in it and b) Hannah told me to for some reason.

Thoughts I guess.Collapse )

I. Last night Hannah, Tay and I watched Mrs Ratcliffe's Revolution, which is a movie from 2007 starring Catherine Tate and Iain Glen. The basic plot is that downtrodden housewife Catherine Tate & her family move to East Germany in the late 60s when her communist husband Jorah Mormont takes a teaching job over there. It was actually pretty great! Catherine Tate was in the starring role for once instead of a bit-part, her character was excellent, the plot was interesting and it was pretty funny in a genuine-funny way and not an LA-Without-a-Map way.


Also she wears this amazing swim cap.


II. Speaking of Catherine Tate, apparently on Boxing Day there'll be a two-hour documentary airing called Catherine Tate: Laughing at the 00s, about (British I assume) comedy in the last decade:

Sketch-show sensation Catherine tells the story of the decade in which she became a household name. She meets with comedy glitterati Alan Carr, David Walliams, Noel Fielding, Rob Brydon and her Doctor Who co-star, David Tennant, all of whom reflect on the greatest comedy moments in recent history.

As well as showcasing all the most entertaining, memorable comedy of the time, the documentary also features newsreel and pop culture archive that contextualises the gags. It reveals not just what was funny, but why it was funny.



I don't have much to do with British comedy BUT WHO CARES, Catherine Tate is hosting a thing and interviewing David Tennant for it, so I am already prepping some popcorn.

III. I'd heard a while ago that supposedly that Love Life program was Curb Your Enthusiasm-style scriptless improv, but I wasn't sure how true that was until I saw this interview with Kaya Scodelario floating around Tumblr. Honestly?



Most interesting thing about this project TBH, I am now genuinely intrigued for reasons beyond casting. I mean, that definitely has the potential to be terrible on every level, but it'll be a NEW and EXCITING kind of terrible. On the downside, apparently Billie Piper's character doesn't actually make out with Kaya Scodelario's character which seems like a wasted opportunity.

Here's a link if for some reason you are like me and can't get the embed to play.

LOL So we watched 'The Shadow in the North'. Spoilers I guess.Collapse )

In conclusion, this was probably worse than the first film, but it also had parts that were more amusing. Does anyone have any particular suggestions for what we should look for next in our quest to WATCH ALL THE THINGS with Doctor Who alum?

I. So I've been rewatching s1 with firstofoct right? And sometimes spud14. We just finished Aliens of London/WW3 last night. Oh, show. I forgot how genuinely adorable and friendly Rose is! I mean, not forgot, but... idk, it sure is different from how the show is these days. And Nine! I always forget how much I like Nine until I actually sit down and watch some Nine. You can tell the show hasn't really found its tone or style yet and Mickey and Jackie are just starting to be fleshed out, but d'aww. Also, lol forever @ the CGI. So great. What's with the music, though? With some exceptions -- for example, O HAI, Doomsday song in "Rose" -- the episode action-y music is like, awful. I think I've heard that they didn't start using an actual orchestra until maybe s2? I guess that could be part of it. But right now I am loling a bit. Murray Gold, you can do better.

II. Another top 5 for all of you! goldy_dollar asked for Top five times Billie Piper cried so well that you wanted to rip out your own heart and stamp on it.

I hope you appreciate that these are not all from Doctor Who. That made it a challenge.Collapse )
