After a month or so of feeling not all that great, it was nice to experience genuinely happy-making things for a bit. And the last couple of days have been filled with such things (well, three such things, to be exact).( Cut for Oscars, skinny guitarists, and the inappropriate use of a ukelele...Collapse )
First off, getting a tumblr may not have been the best idea in the world for someone who procrastinates as much as I do, especially when you consider the fact that uni is starting again soon. I had plans of writing, making icons, and giving my bedroom a long overdue clean over the weekend, but Tumblr sucked me in, and I just ended up making Hellstrom/Shosanna graphics and re-blogging things I haven't talked about on here for ages (eg Life on Mars, Hot Fuzz, It's Always Sunny, Monty Python
, etc). I like it, but I'm dreading just how easily I'll be able to distract myself with it when I should be doing assigments and the like.
Oh, and speaking of Python, a two-part documentary about them aired here recently, and it not only re-awakened the slight, er, "thing" I have for Michael Palin, I now possibly ship Palin/Cleese slightly. Yeah, I know, but it's not my fault that Eric Idle (at least, I think it was him) mentioned that Cleese was always eager to hop into bed with Palin. *sigh* I can remember the days when I didn't actively ship RPF pairings (which is yet another thing I can blame Basterds for ;p).
Also, in other news, damn it, Skins
. Not only was the last episode the best from the second generation, I now have a favorite ship, and a character who I love almost as much as I adored Chris Miles from the first generation. This wasn't supposed to happen. Now when the second generation ends (in four measly episodes time, only three of which will feature this character), I'm going to end up missing one of them. It hurt enough the first time around, and while I won't miss the second gen as a whole anywhere near as much as I miss the first, and I won't miss Katie Fucking Fitch as much as I still miss Chris (although, that would be difficult considering the fact that Chris no longer exists in the Skinsverse in any capacity, unless it's AU fanon), it's still probably going to make me cry. Hell, I've watched the last episode three times since Friday, and every single time the ending had me on the verge of tears. Katie, why did you have to end up being so adorable?
...Yeah, I get too attached to fictional characters.
Finally, just to lengthen this entry a bit (I just felt like posting about absolutely nothing, for some reason), have a meme:List all of the television shows you have on DVD, no matter how obscure or embarrassing. Even if you only own one season, list it. Let's see who has what!( List behind the cut (it's not that long, though)...Collapse )
It Burns White HotCharacters:
Hans Landa, with references to Hellstrom.Rating:
300 (triple drabble)Warnings:
Swearing, masturbation, and dark themes. Companion piece to Because You Must
To taste and touch. To tease and conquer.Disclaimer:
Inglourious Basterds belongs to
Quentin Tarantino, I'm just borrowing the characters for the moment.
Notes: I needed something to break my writer's block, and this companion piece was it. (I'll get around to the other fics that I have promised people. Really.)( Read more...Collapse )
It's funny how I suddenly seem to give a crap about the Oscars only when a movie that I'm fannishly obsessed with is a possible contender. I usually don't really care about them (or any awards shows) either way. The film in question, just in case you didn't know, is Inglourious Basterds
, and it managed to score 8 noms. However, since either The Hurt Locker
(*shudders*) have both the Best Director and Best Film in the bag (even though the latter clearly belongs to District 9
, IMHO), and Avatar
is a certainty to win every single tech award in existence(1)
, I'm only concerned about two awards in particular (or, well, six, but two are only due to other fandoms, and the other two don't count, as they may or may not be imaginary categories (which would have been awarded to D9 and Basterds, btw, but I'm digressing enough as it is)).
Basically, as long as Christoph Waltz wins for Best Supporting Actor and Tarantino wins for Best Original Screenplay (I'll spare you all of the gory details about my love affair with that screenplay. Suffice it to say that if I believed in marriage, and I could get away with it, I would probably marry the dialogue in that screenplay), I'll be happy. And hey, if
Carey Mulligan happens to win Best Actress and In The Loop
scores the Best Adapted Screenplay award, that would also be awesome. Oh, and it would also be cool to see Colin Firth win for Best Actor, but it would be even better to see a nomination for Sharlto Copely at the very least.
So, in what I guess can be called a celebration of Basterds' 8 nominations, have a picture of Tarantino nomming on Christoph's ear(2)
(1) Even though I also think these awards should go to D9 - sure, Avatar has revolutionary technology, but only because a squillion dollars and nearly a decade were spent on it. D9 was made for a budget of $30 million and was in production for less than a year, and it still looks as good as almost any other blockbuster out there, most of which cost infinitely more, in terms of both time and money, to make. In terms of a realistic cinematic revolution, D9 wins hands down. And no, I'm not prejudiced against Dances With Wolves/Pocahontas/Fern Gully-in-space, what on Earth would make you think that? ;p(2) In unrelated news, it's quite bizarre to come across two pictures, from two completely different fandoms, that both feature one male nomming on the ear of another. It's even more of a weird coincidence when one of those fandoms is, let's face it, my favourite fandom at the moment, and the other fandom is *thisclose* to being disowned. It's just... odd. </random footnote is random> Oh, and the other fandom is Skins, btw.
Also, in case you are interested, here's
the full list of nominees.
Our flat has a vacant block next door (there was a vacated house there, but squatters moved in and apparently burnt it down, so it's not there any more), which doesn't really bother me all that much. Sure, it may make us more of a target for burglaries, but we've already had two break-ins, so I'm sure I would be able to handle a third. What I cannot handle, however, is some wanky, bollocky dickweed deciding that hey, it's 3 am, why don't I go and rev my motorbike up in that vacant lot over there for about three bloody minutes? The bitch is lucky that I am still awake, and am unlikely to be asleep for a while, because if he had woken me up with that noise... well, let's just say I don't handle being woken up before I need to very well.
Still, what a fucking douchebag.
Something Like That
Günther/Paul, mentions of Hilde, Hans, Elli, and assorted others. Rating:
AU, set prior to the events of the film, angst, some light swearing, violent thoughts, and a few sexual references.Summary:
Is this what friendship is supposed to feel like?Disclaimer:
Love In Thoughts belongs to, well, I suppose it belongs to Paul Krantz originally, but the film belongs to Achim von Borries.( Read more...Collapse )
Dieter Hellstrom, mentions of Hicox and Stiglitz.Rating:
Sexual references, gun use, violence, sadism, grotesque imagery.Summary:
Dieter Hellstrom is a man with many corpses buried in the back of his mind.Disclaimer:
Inglourious Basterds belongs to Quentin Tarantino, I'm just borrowing the characters for nefarious purposes.
Notes: I don't really know how to explain this, other than it is an attempt at a Hellstrom character study that was subsequently taken over by zombie metaphors. Yeah, I don't know either.( Read more...Collapse )
