odds & ends

Random things I wanted to get down before I forget...

tinderblast  or thysanotus , would you have a mp3 of Deeper from UAL?  It's the one song I'm missing.  Thanks so much.  :)

Finally, here are my pictures:

Couldn't get a decent picture of Ryan as either his hat or a fan was in the way.  Didn't try to get a picture Gary.

For all you Gilmore Girls fans -- was the absence of Lane's father ever explained on the show?  I'm curious.

Christmas Day was, as usual, a quiet day for us.  As per our tradition, we watched a movie that afternoon.  I saw The Producers.  As much as I enjoyed the play, the transfer from stage to screen was not done well.  All the criticisms it received (ie Broderick and Lane are still playing to the back of the theatre) is true.  Overall though, it's a fun movie.  Will Ferrell & Uma Thurman were great.  And I couldn't get that one musical line, "Springtime for Hitler and Germany" (can't remember the rest of the words to the song), out of my head for hours.

While I was waiting for my parents' movie to finish (they watched Munich), I snuck into another theatre and watched the last 15 minutes of Brokeback Mountain.  And I started tearing up again.  I'm hopeless.

Boxing Day was crazy.  As usual, I was at the shopping mall by 9:30.  By noon, I was starting to go crazy with the increasing crowd. Went to a Japanese buffet for lunch with bauersgirl (salmon sushi is goooood, you loooooove it).

An early happy birthday to kissedbythegods in case I'm not on-line that day.

Oh squee!!  They're re-airing the pilot to Supernatural!!  I'm off to watch!

Thank you for the happy early birthday wishes!

I finally found someone to see Brokeback Mountain with, so if they ever release it to theatres here then I'm in! I'm quite excited to see it. (We saw King Kong tonight. Eh.)

And what did you think of the pilot? it's one of my favourite episodes.

You're welcome!

Here's hoping you can see the Jake/Heath action Brokeback Mountain. They're doing a really slow roll-out. In the Toronto area, it's playing in only about 10 theatres. As for King Kong, I really have no interest in seeing the movie. Maybe when it comes out on DVD and then I'll get the bootleg.

I really liked the pilot. Finally saw all those quotes in action and in context: "Driver picks the music, passenger shuts his cakehole", "no chick flick moments", etc etc. :)

Pretty icon.
I'm pretty excited! But seriously, the slashy squeeing is going to be over the top. How will my friends deal with me? I'm hoping that we get it eventually, probably once they kick Harry Potter or King Kong out of our main theatres.

I adore the pilot, even if the whole woman in white thing was pretty weak. Actually, I just adore the show in general but you know that. Speaking of those quotes...thanks for reminding me to find that cafepress store again! (I insanely want a Metallicar shirt.) We're getting Dead in the Water tonight, right? I love that one, too.

Re: Pretty icon.
Oh but the slash is so deserving of the squeeing.

A Metallicar shirt? That sounds cool. I should check out that cafepress site. Another ep tonight? Gotta check the tv listings. Dead in the Water was my first SN episode. It's a good one.

Pretty much all slash is deserving of squeeing! Also, my laugh of the day. Out.com had a poll asking who would be best suited to replaced Heath/Jake in Brokeback, and who is winning? Jared/Jensen. Now there's a movie I'd kill to see!

These stores basically own me! And I think the marathon ended tonight, but I hope you caught it! Skin is amazing.

Jared/Jensen in Brokeback? Oh man....

Unfortunately, I don't get the WB so no SN marathon for me! And can I just say *GUH* over those Skin caps you posted? TiedUp!Sam! And that last one... I haven't seen this ep yet. WHY HAVEN'T I SEEN SKIN YET?!? (heehee, that sounds dirty funny)

Needless to say, they won the poll.

Oh my gosh, what are you watching it on? City? we get both, but I usually opt to watch the WB. Skin is beautiful. You should download it! And yes, the dirty appeal is beautiful. Today I told someone that I was going to "watch Skin in bed".

Thanks for sharing your pictures. If you don't mind I think I'm stealing the one's of Billy tehehehe.

I don't recall ever hearing about Laine's dad on Gilmore Girls.

Speaking of Gilmore Girls, I'm now the owner of seasons 1-5 on dvd. I love that show so much.

Steal away. :) I got lucky with the last one -- Billy was the last of the Idols in the line so while he was waiting for the next fan, he saw me with the camera and posed.

Thanks about the info on Lane's dad. I was just watching the show the other day and it just occurred to me that we never heard about him.

I'm debating whether or not to get the DVDs cause you can actually catch re-runs on the W network. Maybe when they get really cheap.

you are welcome to borrow any of the seasons off of me

I do, but I'm not at home right now.

REply to this so I get the comment and remind me to send it on over?

Thanks so much!

Yay! Thank you!

And here we go: Deeper, from UAL.

Er, that's the only one I don't have, either. Actually, I forgot to DL HIH on this computer, so technically I don't have that.

Oh that's right! You were missing 2 of the songs yourself and they were both Ike songs *tsk tsk* :D

Now I gotta figure out which 2 songs to leave off when I burn the CD.

Even though yes, technically, it's an Isaac song ... I'd say River. It's just not thrilling a song, and the concert doesn't get into gear till the third song, If Only.
