SO. LEGEND OF KORRA.



I actually watched the 2-episode premiere of this before I went back and watched A:TLA which I think gave me probably a different perspective on it than most people.

Spoilers for all the aired episodes.Collapse )

Also -- does anyone know where to find Korra icons that aren't the animated ONTD-style gif icons?

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:



Still excellent.

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 here it is anyway.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:



10/10 for the one that does a perfect backflip.

D'AWWW lol, I love Calvin & Hobbes.

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.

New s6b trailer with a few clips we haven't seen before and obligatory unnecessary BBCA cheesy voice-over:



Also a description of s6b, promo stuff but I'll cut for spoilers anyway.Collapse )

Apparently on Monday we get the third and final prequel, and this time it will actually be relevant and worth watching since it'll have the Doctor and Amy.

On a similar note, BBCA has an article up about Rose Tyler and it's pretty cute. I like the description of Cloen at the end, lol.

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


GET READY, ENGLAND/OPAL.

The other day on the radio I heard a song I have not heard in a while and was hit by the epiphany that it is basically the perfect Eleven/River song.

SO ENJOY THIS LYRICAL ACCURACY:





ETA: I cannot find a version that embeds properly. Ugh fuuuuuuuuuu youtube.

I. Hannah and I just watched "Dalek". That is such a great episode. Eccleston absolutely kills that first scene with the Dalek. Also, even though I'm in camp "the Daleks haven't been scary since season 1 so what's the harm in making them hilarious?", watching this made me resent the skittleDaleks and their un-threateningly deep voices. Ye olde shrieky Dalek voice was better. Lastly, I feel a bit mean, but I have never really understood the classification of Adam as a "pretty boy" both by Nine and by fandom. He seems more like... um... "relatively unremarkable nerd guy" at best. Who turns out to be a douche.

II. WHY CAN I NOT WRITE ANYMORE FUUUUUU omfg this is the most frustrating thing ever, I am so ready to hurl my computer and/or this fic into the Rift/the Void/the series 5 crack. I stared at a Google Doc all day and by the end of it I was just ready to be like



III. This video is hilarious though. I forgive some of the amateurish editing because Ten/Rose + Flight of the Conchords is all I want from life:

THINGS I NEED that I could probably Google but evidently would rather ask you for:

1. A (London) gang name -- real or fictitious, IDC
2. A fancy-ish, fast car that might be owned by a random citizen of London

YOU COULD WIN: the eternal glory of me using these things to fill in the blanks in fic, so I don't post another chapter of Identity Theft that accidentally still says something like "at Some Restaurant".

Here is a hilarious fanvideo for your time:

I have a report due on Monday that is basically a, well, report on this experiment thing I did in psycholinguistics. I find it really intimidating because I haven't written a report-type thing since probably high school, and venturing out of my academic comfort zone is frightening, okay. Can't I just write about symbolism or something?

Anyway, so obviously this is how I've spent the afternoon:

  • Made a responsible decision to not go watch Harry Potter with friends tonight so I can stay home and work
  • Celebrated this responsible decision-making by checking livejournal
  • Opened the assignment, looked over it again, felt a little panicky
  • Spent more time on livejournal
  • Opened a Word document and wrote out the subheadings
  • Talked to firstofoct on MSN
  • Wrote about 3 sentences of the easiest part of the assignment
  • Oooo, maybe something exciting has happened on lj!


That I ever accomplish anything and have never handed an assignment in late is basically a miracle in and of itself.

Anyway, the reality is that I am really posting in order to post this:



Omg, favourite people.

Apparently yesterday marked the 6-year anniversary of New Who, which is cute. Here is a CELEBRATORY FAN TRAILER:



I think I prefer this one a bit but the one above is cute too.

I. On Friday I hung out with my friend. We decided to rent Back to the Future because I have somehow gone 21 years without ever seeing that film. AND THEN... the video store didn't have it. Wtf? This is actually like the third time this has happened to me. Anyway, then we tried to rent Jurassic Park, but they didn't have the first one. And then we found... 100 Million BC. The basic plot? Back in WWII, the US Navy developed a method of time travel and sent a test team back to the ~age of dinosaurs~ (because they were worried that sending them any earlier would risk Butterfly Effect stuff -- which leaves you to wonder why they carried on with the time travel project). Predictably, the team got stuck there, and now, 60 years later, a rescue team is being SENT BACK IN TIME! And they accidentally bring a dinosaur back with them to the future. So really, it kind of combined both Jurassic Park and Back to the Future. Go us.

Words can't do justice to how amazing this movie was. Everything was terrible. The special effects, the writing, the acting, the sets, the production values, the concept -- it was so bad that the video was not even centered on the tv screen. Here is a YouTube video that has most of the best moments, though the guys narrating are kind of unfunny:



There were even special features on this DVD. IDEK someone paid thousands of dollars to make this, I can't fathom it.

II. On a totally different note, a poll!
Poll #1717553 rpf is weird okay

The two actors who play the couple you ship start dating in real life. You are:

excited because that is awesome and clearly they have ~real chemistry
11(27.5%)
a little bit horrified because what if it kills the chemistry, or what if they break up?
10(25.0%)
not bothered either way because they can do what they want
19(47.5%)

I. So my boots broke yesterday (WTF boots) which means I need new ones, but I don't want to walk over to the shoe store because it is snowing like a mofo and now I have no boots. CONUNDRUM.

II. Omg school, I am still not readjusted to school mode and the notion of having stuff to do. I also have to start applying for summer jobs this week, and applying for jobs and subsequently interviewing for jobs is one of my least favourite activities. I am eager to have an employer lined up (primarily so I can harass them for time off at the end of August, ngl) but ugh interviews you are the worst.

III. I was so bored and procrastinating last night that I watched two episodes of Vampire Diaries, which rounds me up to ten total (1x05-1x15). Here are some vague thoughts.Collapse )

IV. Tennant-Moffet baby for Doctor #37-or-so, y/y. On ONTD someone was like "if this kid can't legitimately travel in time I will lose all faith" which has been my favourite comment on the matter thusfar.

V. Continuing my television roll, apparently Michael Scott is leaving The Office before the season ends, rather than in the finale? Ugh Office, I c wut ur doin thar and I am not impressed, I am flouncing midseason anyway and you cannot stop me.

VI. Lastly, I don't watch L&O UK but this ad is hilarious, well done BBCA:



Plus there are shots of Freema being flawless.

So it is now 2011! I don’t like that number tbqh, it sounds bad. “Twenty ten” rolled off the tongue much better than “twenty eleven” does. BUT I had quite a good New Year’s Eve/Day that included good friends and a surplus of food and also a debate between friends over whether or not your significant other making out with a clone of themselves would be hot. Oddly enough I am not even responsible for starting that one. I SWEAR. General consensus seemed to be that no one wanted to make out with their clone because that would be weird.

I was going to post a Ten picspam today, but it is taking foreeeever so that will probably go up tomorrow in reality. In the meantime, accept this dramatic fanvideo set to Sinatra:

So 2010 is almost over! I ...can't decide if I liked it or not. I'll have to think on it. I spent last night watching Lost in Austen with my friends, and while I was pretty severely unimpressed with it I did enjoy playing a good round of Doctor Who Bingo. (River Song, Adelaide Brooke, Tish Jones and Nancy from TEC/TDD ftw!) To the ending, though, I say, "LOL R U SRS". Frankly I think the show should've followed Lizzie Bennet, because she was obviously having a grand old time.

I'm going to do that fic meme everyone else has done. First, my surprisingly short 2010 masterlist.Collapse )

And the meme.Collapse )

Anyway, hope you have a good new year's eve, whatever you're doing. Here is an adorable video someone posted on Facebook with bonus surprise lulz:

I. My last day of work was today! So now I have a couple weeks off before I go back to class. Omg, going back to class is a terrifying prospect. I don't remember how this "school" thing goes. Tomorrow I'm going to a Christmas party which should be fun, but I have a bit of a cold so I plan to spend tonight hibernating.

II. I just watched the Misfits 2x06. Spoilers.Collapse )

III. For the one person on the internet who hasn't seen it yet:



lol I love them
