my brother likes to send me things he made

Aug. 30th, 2011 | 11:58 pm

i, uh. am very grateful?

make it big.  make it big to see the GLORY.

(this was what happened after the tardington text message that announced "i will draw you a brookertaur jumping over a rainbow.")

(and is now my laptop wallpaper.  my at-home laptop.  i don't think this will do at work. if only because i don't know where i would even begin an explanation.  i'd have to go back to some kind of first principle and work from there.)

important friday night crab fishing news:

Oct. 15th, 2010 | 10:23 pm

#1 there are 31 deadliest catch stories on AO3 \crabs/ eta: including a vampire au that, sadly, you can only read if you have an AO3 login. because: "Moi, no were-crabs this year. If Sten or Sig says throw it back, do so. Listen to the Norwegians, they know a little something about nautical 'Voodoo,'"

#2 captain sig hansen may possibly appear on dancing with the stars \hansens/

#3 check out the super sexy dancetastic photomanip in the article:

#4 however, i am a lot more amused by the commenters who would like to see the hillstrand brothers instead. why, just imagine! style AND beauty!Collapse )

#5 for those of you who have not been following - there was some drama! discovery was suing the hillstrands! they were leaving deadliest catch! sig was leaving too! however, apparently contracts have been renegotiated, they're all back next season, and MUCH MORE IMPORTANTLY: spin-off hillstranded is (probably) going ahead.

not only is this a special hillstrand spinoff - and to be honest, i'd watch a show called "johnathan and andy go to the bar, talk shit, compare tattoos with the barman" - it is now being described as a series of specials where the brothers will investigate legends centered in Alaska, including a local legend about a Lochness-type monster.

crab fisherman AND cryptozoology AND alaska = SHOW TAILOR MADE FOR UNHURTS.

#6 i should get caught up on DC, but i am still having some /u\ philllllllllllll /u\ issues.

no more new fandoms this month please, brain!

Jul. 15th, 2010 | 10:32 pm

local news is very exciting:

A specialised cable laying ship is due in Orkney later this week to carry out work for EMEC, the European Marine Energy Centre. [...] we'd ask other seafarers to give the CS Sovereign a wide berth while the cable laying operations are in progress.

so, of course, it was emailed. kanz: Wow, Cable gets himself a whole ship! I hope it's manned with Deadpool clones. [eta: apparently it was only me that was amused by the "laying". so lonely etc!]

me: am now thinking about cap'n cable and his deadpool crew. i think i am PROBABLY too new to this to be thinking about cracky AUs.  (at least i didn't go to the crab-fishing pl-- oh.)  (hee. cable is PSYCHIC FOR CRABS. he finds all the best fishing grounds to drop his gear!  he only has one deck hand because deadpool is just. that. good. i... really need to stop imagining wade in oilskins over his deadpool costume.)*

*and more importantly, i really need to stop finding it hot. i am judging MYSELF right now!

in other news: going out for dinner & drinks with work folks tomorrow. food place is reached by ferry. alcohol and three metre seas - how could this possibly go wrong? \u/

in which unhurt watches more tv

May. 18th, 2008 | 10:55 pm

(also, i put up shelves, and sorted out my mounds of bike-related paraphernalia. and only got up at noon!) *wins at diy etc*

mythbusters? hmm. i might like this?Collapse )

\u/ deadliest catch! \u/Collapse )

okay. hopefully i will have scans of Screening Gender up before i go to bed. (they have saved out of order, and i need to check i scanned enough pages to provide actual context; if not: there will be more scanning and a small delay...)

(eta: weighed rats for first time in ages. when i got them they were both about 125 grams (4oz). now john is about 300 grams (10oz) and joe is 350 grams (12oz). squishy rodent! so cute!)

insomnia = unhurt watching shows about serial killers. why is that?

May. 18th, 2008 | 03:21 am

(dear virgin tv: you confuse me! i have discovery again! [thus the serial killers] so why did you tell me i didn't and deny me my deadliest catch??)

okay, so firstly, happy birthday meresy \u/ *packages up a callum just for you* (don't tear the wrapping off too fast, you might damage the contents. with your teeth.)

random other things: there is a woolworths advert that keeps airing in the breaks between serial killers: "pre-order sweeney todd and get a free PIE recipe book!" i am excessively amused.

tonight i finally admitted i am no longer a field archaeologist. i brought my field toolbox home from under my desk at work on thursday, and now it has been emptied and cleaned and tomorrow i'll fill it with bike tools. things got kind of rusty :( sad evidence of my past lifeCollapse )

things i got back from fedex part 1: canadian goodies finally returned to me. woo!Collapse )

possibly of more interest to people who are not me, i found this book by chance: Screening Gender, Framing Genre: Canadian Literature Into Film. pouncing excitedly upon it i found that, yes, it does have quite a lot to say about Hard Core Logo. can upload scans of relevant sections, if anyone is interested? it is pretty interesting stuff (and the author has googled - well. us, basically!) (What my admittedly very cursory and wholly ad hoc survey of some of these narratives reveals is [...] a complex suturing of female fantasy and phallic identification that completely renovates not only the genres of romance and pornography, but also the gender fixity of masculine and feminine viewing positions as they have been theorized, especially in relation to melodrama, by classic feminist film theory.)

unrelated to any of the above - not very good pictures of seals. for c_regalisCollapse )

it is 03:20. why am i not asleep? *eyes tea suspiciously*

scriggle made me picspam. EDGAR HANSEN picspam. \u/

what do you mean, who? *gasp*

[educates the ignorant]as you may have noticed, the discovery channel has a show about crab fishing. called deadliest catch. edgar hansen is the wee brother of the captain of the northwestern. he's all deadpan and sardonic and scruffy and kind of a dork. and i might have a tiny wee crush, which is TOTALLY NORMAL SHUT UP KANZENHANZAI. AND ALSO BLUE IF YOU ARE READING THIS BECAUSE I KNOW YOU ARE THINKING STUFF.[/education]

anyway. go look! ♥

(fic commenting lovely people, i shall be back anon. i.e. after dinner.)

ETA: as i may have said elsewhere (ok, in mal's pimping post here: unhurt/edgar is technically rpf, right?

*shifty eyes*)

busy busy busy (and supposedly writing worthless crack as usual) but! scriggle posted eeenteresting things about whatever the hell daniel macivor1 is writing right now. \u/

(if not able to see that entry, at least go and read how secretlybronte is a woman of great genius who has worked it all out. you will be glad you did. *hopes fervently for this version of the universe to be true*)

right. back to the foreskindeck with me.

1other than emotionally bleak and sexually charged crab fishing epics, of course.

ETA: apparently the (fictional) ghost of joe dick is displeased! or things in the high kitchen cupboard shifted on their own. items bounce off unhurt's head. owchies! assaulted by two victoria sponge trays and a plastic camping plate. send tea!

ETA2: in retaliation, i have temporarily replaced joe (who has been my wallpaper for, urrrm, a very long time indeed) with callum's - or, well, craig's - ass.

fic! er. apologies in advance.

Apr. 30th, 2008 | 11:22 pm

this time i blame c_regalis. because she asked for it!

you know the score - shameless rps crack based upon my obsessions of the moment. 1800 words, pg unless you have an allergy, and beta'd by the lovely llassah.

untitled - but in my head, homer simpson is singing 'under the sea'!Collapse )
