Well in honour of ACADEMY AWARD WINNER Bret McKenzie (lololol) I've been listening to Flight of the Conchords on YouTube.
Which led to me re-discovering this video:
Also, the only "I'm Not Crying" DW fanvideo I found was one of those ones where the videomaker obviously went out of their way to strategically not include even a hint of Rose. Wtf. RUINED. SOMEONE REMEDY THIS.
I was all like 'hmm, maybe I should do that meme I've done every year at New Year's!" And I went to my old entries to find it and LOL apparently I didn't do it last year after all. Oops? But ( Collapse )
Well that was fun.
When I was looking through last year's post to try and find this meme, I saw that my New Year's Eve post included a video of polar bears narrated by David Tennant. This year I bring you AMAZING STINGRAYS:
On a related note, I'm really annoyed we don't have any snow? I mean, on one hand, hurrah! Snow is a pain in the ass! On the other hand, the only upside to living in a frozen tundra wasteland is having a postcard-pretty white Christmas. Stop denying me this one benefit, weather!
So this exists. Yes I am delayed w/e I never claimed to be a Hunger Games stan plus I know there are some of you who aren't either and probably haven't seen it yet, plus I haven't seen anyone talk about it:
I'm ...kind of impressed? My ~unpopular opinion~ about this franchise (other than not being a huge fan) is that I actually think if it was done well a movie adaptation could be much better than the book. I think Collins had some interesting ideas, but she's a screenwriter and you can tell because her prose is... not... the best. If they can take the better ideas and themes and moments and translate them into something that isn't narrated in present-tense sentence fragments, it could be good. Trailers can easily be better than the actual whole they're selling (LOOKING @ U, SERIES 6) so this movie could easily be a hot mess still, but consider me tentatively intrigued.
In other news, I leave in twelve days! I still have to do things like "buy shoes" and "write my work-term report" and "call the credit card company", but I am getting pretty excited. And by "pretty excited" I mean
