janie_tangerine: (JUST KEEP SWIMMING)
1) hiiiiii everyone again <3

So: I'm currently back from outside-country vacations + opera festival in here, but I'm doing the annual going-to-the-grandmother's-place-where-no-bookshop-exists trip until September 5th so I'll be back either then or the 6th, depends on how dead asleep I am when I get back home. Vacations + opera festival were glorious after seeing William Tell staged as a socialist opera I think I can't ask for anything more from life. The no-bookshop place won't be half as good but I had it excellent until now so I'm not going to complain here...

2) I've sent all the postcards for everyone who asked :D sadly I had to send them from Italy when I got back because I didn't manage to find a running postal office when I needed it in both Vienna or Paris (go me seriously) so they'll probably get to you like a month from now, but I swear I tried /o\

3) I'm probably going to post decent pictures when I'm back, but for now, have a look at this ridiculousness I bought in Paris. Or better, I just bought the doll, I found the mug in a comic books shop near my place, but I apparently found the staging absolutely worth the effort.

4) I've managed to see the first two Breaking Bad episodes even if like a week late every time, so I'll leave a few thoughts here - nothing too elaborate because I need to finish packing and I still need to process them all, but if I don't do it now I won't do it later, so.

spoilerssss )

5) Apparently a ridiculous crush on Mads Mikkaelsen completely snuck up on me while watching Hannibal because in Paris I ended up going to watch this historical flick where he was the main actor and which was also in French without subtitles, and while I can read French, hearing it spoken is entirely different...totally worth it though. From what I've understood, obviously /o\ also, the other highlight was going to watch Now You See Me because MARK RUFFALO (and I had missed it over here) and clearly I got the ending twist two minutes into that movie because I recognized Mark Ruffalo FROM THE SHOULDERS when he was wearing the hoodie in the beginning, so much for actually putting some brains into guessing the plot, but other than that it was a pretty cool movie and there's nothing better than starting your birthday looking at his face so it was all good. :D

6) Oh, and I started reading Discworld. I feel like I'm screwed because I soooo didn't need a 30+ books series but I knew I'd probably like it and I'm at one book done and two half started and I'm loving it, so I'm apparently very screwed. Go me?

7) With this I'll go catch up with what I can of lj plus messages I haven't managed to answer until now and then I'll go pack - hopefully when I'm back next month I'll manage to get back on top of actually reading the flist properly again...

1.
three movies! )

2. I DID manage to fill one of those porn battle prompts I had eyed! :D Now I just need to finish the other three I have going on. And apparently I eyed a Jon/Ygritte prompt that won't leave me the hell alone. and clearly all the Jon/Sam prompts are show-based, but I'm tempted to cheat and write one anyway. If I do it without too much dialogue and taking the actors into account I should manage to sell it, right? Also apparently this round I'm stalking ASOIAF prompts, what.

3. I also have a bunch of things to actually DO before leaving for a week next Sunday (though I should be still enough around) so maybe I should start DOING them. And work on fic that isn't porn battle prompts.

4. I wanted to link that Castiel + Ghostfacers video but they're apparently taking it down from everywhere? :(((( that's such a pity because it was the most hilarious thing in the history of hilarity.

5. All right, meme is done, crap to do waits for me, so I'll just go do it and hope to be done before tomorrow. If I also manage to go sell some crappy books/dvds that I don't need and get some money out of them, even better.

So I looked at the top fives and decided that three out of eight required visual evidence and two youtube evidence, so I'm doing two posts. This round is one of the youtube ones and the visual evidence-less ones, the next will be the other youtube spam one and the ones with picspams.

For now you get: top five shows you plan on watching but haven't yet, top five Deadwood quotes, top ten Italian movies (because I couldn't choose five) and top five vampire diaries porn moments.

all here! )

See you next round with the remaining top fives!

birthdays + movie meme

janie_tangerine: (bogart &amp; bacall)
First thing: happy birthday to my brain twin [livejournal.com profile] bold_seer!! <333333333333 You know ilu right? I hope you're having a great day, possibly not doing anything too horrible for credits and if I could deliver Leonard Cohen on your door you know I would. ;) also if you want to prompt me I'll take it, sometime after next week. ;)

And second, since idk if I'll manage to post anything tomorrow, happy early birthday to [livejournal.com profile] siluria! :D I hope you have an amazing day tomorrow, and if you want to throw prompts my way I'll see what I can do. :))

And now, since I should be editing footnotes but I can't until I get the thesis back from some round of editing, I'll go for a nice meme which I haven't done in ages. Also, most of these movies are not in the usual favorites I mention all the time, but if I threw Blade Runner at you every time it'd be obvious, y/y? ;)

1. Pick 15 20 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.

janie_tangerine: (THE IMMORTAL QUOTE)
1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] lasamy and [livejournal.com profile] anewdaysjourney! (even if I think you're on hiatus but hey, I don't care. ;) )

cliiick. )

2. Due to the whole exam-I-didn't-give debacle, I missed a shitload of birthays here. So even if I managed to do wishes for at least someone on their journal, round up! Happy (late) birthday to [livejournal.com profile] _chica02, [livejournal.com profile] pandora_nervosa and [livejournal.com profile] valhalla37! I can't make banners for everyone atm but if you want to prompt me with anything I'll try to see what I can do. Not making guarantees because lately I've been shit at doing it, but I promise I'll try. ;)

3. Er, you remember that caring is sharing meme?

For one week, recommend/share:
Day 1: a song
Day 2: a picture
Day 3: a book/ebook/fanfic
Day 4: a site
->Day 5: a youtube clip
Day 6: a quote
Day 7: whatever tickles your fancy

And soo, in honor of my newfound Avenue Q obsession, I bring you a Lost + Avenue Q mesh-up which is totally hilarious. Also because there's a Kate and a Kate, lol.



I kind of was tempted by the SPN one for The Internet Is For Porn but this one works too much better, lol.

3b. Avenue Q speaking, I found out it's playing next month on stage here. Clearly it's the Italian version which means that it's translated and while I'm kind of really really wanting to go, I'm dreading the idea of hearing it translated. Do I go or do I not? It's not even expensive. Mm. I'm tempted.

4. Okay, I'll be out going to the new Woody Allen movie. I need a laugh. Actually, I also need to buy the new Pearl Jam record. I also have some discount for it I think.

5. Miracle happened last day: my mom actually trusted me with her car. It took her apparently three years to get that I'm not killing anyone, but whatever. That's totally good news, lol.

6. Apart from this awesome news, I think I'm done. I'm sure I'm forgetting something but I can't recall atm. *waves for now*

1. HII! I'm back for good. Finally. I can stop being half MIA now! Well, fine, I have to study for the blasted medieval philosophy exam, but it isn't until the 24th at least. Now I'll finish unpacking and then I'll do my final catch up. Which thankfully isn't that much.

2. For my birthday I asked for the S2/S3 SPN dvds and Steve Earle's short stories book and everything arrived. \o/ Totally can't wait to read the book. And maybe before S5 starts (wtf it's a week!!) I'll manage to re-watch some S3 stuff which I haven't watched in forever. (Also, Vampire Diaries in a week, too! Why, yes, I'm excited. It's His Prettiness after all. I don't expect anything else really.)

3. So, while I was at grandparents' I caught half of The Frisco Kid on the cable (sadly I couldn't finish it, but I'm downloading now *cough*) and apart from the thing being a blast, why didn't anyone tell me that there was a movie where Harrison Ford and Gene Wilder basically cuddle in the midst of a snow tempest and are actually pretty touchy-feely? Because that was awesome. I'll finish it sometime soon, I hope.

4. Uh. I have fic recs, I owe the luau recap post and I owe fic which is written in my head but not elsewhere. I'll come down to that sometime soon I hope.

5. Did I miss anything I shouldn't have missed? *wants links in case*

6. By the way, I survived the driving without incidents, but I stand by my opinion that I'd rather drive anywhere but there.

7. Duh, I come back and there's ANOTHER new song from the new BJ record two months before it's out? *steals from youtube* fine, it's live, but who cares. \o/

8. I also think I'm sunburned. *sigh* Ah, well, no news and it isn't too bad.

9. Uh, all for now I guess? I'll be tidying stuff, finishing catching up and I hope writing something. If I manage to throw some studying in I'll be accomplished I guess.

Well, after my favorite scene ever in a tv-show ever, you get the best movie ever. I don't know if it's my overall favorite scene mostly because I change idea every time I watch that movie, but this one usually gets the vote most of the times. Obviously, huge spoilers if you didn't see the movie. And yes, I was all for the replicants, mostly.



All these moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. )

1. Hi! *waves* I hope everyone had a good Easter weekend! Mine was basically spent one third reading, the other third watching House episodes on cable and the other third watching the movie version of High Fidelity, which I hadn't managed to see until then. And apart from it being basically awesome (and Bruce had a cameo!), now I want to re-read the book. Which was way too good for its own good. And then I'd spend a month doing top fives I guess.

2. Apart from that, I think I did an excellent exercise in procrastinating except for almost finishing a fic for which I can't find an ending. *sigh*

3. But, since I procrastinate, I have two picspams for that lovely scenes challenge for which I already did the pens scene done. I might post one later and the other one in two days or so.

4. Tomorrow the Easter break is over. *sigh* At least it was long enough to cover today, which meant that I skipped the dread ten-hours-of-classes day.

5. I finished Orwell #1. ♥ I started #2, which thankfully is a hundred pages shorter. Also, because coincidences are coincidences, in the newspaper there was an extract from the Shakespeare Wrote For Money book by Hornby which I'll be glad to read when it's out in paperback where he talked about what he read, which was... Orwell's non-fiction #1 (exactly the one I read). And both of us have gone and found us Tropic Of Cancer after reading that last essay which talks only too highly of it. I'm kind of amused that I did the same thing Nick Hornby did, even if I arrived later.

6. And uhm, yes, not really the most interesting entry ever but for now that's it. *waves*

By the way: I haven't seen Slumdog Millionaire but I can safely say that the best song category was a joke this year. -nods-

Below are all of the Best Picture winners. Bold those you've seen, underline your favorites, and strikeout the ones you don't like.

1. The hamletic doubt of the week: why does every doctor I meet when doing blood tests assuming that one feels uncomfortable with needles/has to panic/is nervous? I mean, it's not like I actually enjoy it but I don't mind it either, I don't care about needles and I don't panic. But I still haven't encountered anyone who doesn't think I'll freak out as soon as I see a needle. Oh well.

2. Golden Globes wins were mostly awesome!!

With some pictures. And oh, BRUCE!!!! )

3. I'm ridiculously excited for Supernatural being back in three days. And for Lost, too, of course. And I'm pretty unspoiled in comparison to last year, even if I know something. Nothing too big at least, but there was just half of a big spoiler around and I didn't read it, so...

4. I finally found The Stand in English! Totally can't wait to re-read it.

5. Tagged from [livejournal.com profile] gottalovev, meme!

List sixteen random things about yourself, then tag sixteen people to do the same.

erm, I'll try to say something new? )

6. Uhm, I think I'm done. Pretty much.
