Heroes 3x01 and 3x02 [Sep. 30th, 2008|05:41 pm]
[mood |irritatedirritated]

I'm not actually THIS far behind, I watched the episodes last week, just didn't get around to saying anything about them before now. Which was stupid, because now everyone's seen 3x03, and I haven't, so no one can even comment properly. Eh.

Cut because I believe spoilers last, also, rantingCollapse )

Can I just point out again that I have NOT seen 3x03? Don't spoil me! Thanks.

Well, they're both set in California... [Sep. 12th, 2008|09:20 am]
[mood |apatheticapathetic]

Beth lent me her Buffy Season 4 DVDs so I could be entertained in my "lying around recovering" time. I like Buffy. I'd never seen it, and we've been working our way VERY VERY SLOWLY through the whole thing (we started a few years ago). I like season 4 so far.

But. Here's my question: Why does Giles live in the Melrose Place apartment complex now?? Was the set going cheap, or something? It's just the exterior, but... it really IS the exterior, I swear.

Knee update: Nothing broken. Probably all the weird joint pain just comes from the bruise itself (and the fact that my knee's so unstable, any movement jars it). I'm a lot better. Still not driving, but hopefully soon. Not sure when I'll get back in to any exercise. (I ran for twenty minutes last Saturday, and today I'm concerned about walking to the other side of campus. This sucks.)

The specialist told me not to do it again. I said he had my full compliance on that one.

Melrose Place: Season 2, episodes 4-6 [Jul. 10th, 2008|08:33 am]
[mood |coldcold]

I got season 2 of Melrose Place on DVD a while back, and got so excited when I started watching it that I actually wrote most of a recap of the first episode (it has screencaps). But I didn't finish it. Maybe I will later.

ANYWAY, I watched episodes 4-6 last night, which are the last I haven't seen before (I actually started watching at the end of S3, but managed to catch up on seasons 2 and 3 - just not the very beginning of S2) and again, just needed to share. So I recorded some thoughts. No one besides granny_apple may care about this, but on the off chance, here they are.

Thought 1: why Jake should get lostCollapse )

Thought 2: Sydney, and why the writers may have been right MAYBECollapse )

Thought 3: I really do love MichaelCollapse )

(This post is purely so I have an archive to update and link back to. I didn't just randomly decide everyone on my f-list needed reminding about all the stuff I've posted in the past. In other words - nothing to see here, folks!)

[Fanvid] Heroes – "Hand of Sorrow" [Jul. 1st, 2008|07:56 pm]
[Tags|, ]
[mood |satisfiedsatisfied]

Finally. (And I really mean finally. I first heard this song sometime around the start of season 2 and was instantly convicted of its perfectness for Heroes, but then I had to wait for the season to finish, and then I got whatever the vidding version of writer's block is, and THEN I stopped working on vids altogether. So. Finally.) Although my enthusiasm is tempered by that moment of disappointment when you've been watching this awesome video on your computer, and then you get it to YouTube and realise how much less awesome it is after YouTube's little gremlins have done their thing.

Video within. I made a picture for it. Because apparently, that's what the cool kids are doing.Collapse )

YouTube gremlins aside, I kinda… really love the way this turned out.

It's not that it was a BAD movie exactly. It's just that its relationship to the book went something like this:

Really not spoilery, but whateverCollapse )

General stuff [Feb. 6th, 2008|11:55 am]

[mood |busybusy]

Baby's First Concert was pretty fun. Nightwish were awesome, naturally. I was somewhat perturbed when I showed up about half an hour before the doors opened (to get dinner) and found a street full of queues waiting to get in - and of those queues, I spotted one person wearing an item of clothing that was not black. I felt like some kind of beacon as I walked past in my bright red singlet top and jeans to pick up my tickets.

The arriving-at-a-reasonable-hour crowd included a few other people in coloured clothes, though. But it was still pretty damn easy to find me in the crowd.


This time last year, I complained about likely being the oldest person in my new Bible Study group. This year, it seems I'll probably be one of the youngest! There are a lot of married couples as well, which is new for me. I'm looking forward to starting tonight!


I officially started writing my thesis yesterday. Awful writing that may not ever even be relevant, of course, but that's hardly the point.


I'm almost positive I had more to say. And I'll probably remember just as soon as I make the post. Oh, well.

New Zealand picspam! [Feb. 1st, 2008|12:50 pm]

[music |Nightwish - Ghost Love Score]

I just started a new Word document and saved it as "PhDthesis".

Therefore, I am finally posting my NZ photos. :p

Beware many picturesCollapse )

On an unrelated note, tonight I'm going to my first concert! Yeah, that's right. Not once in my twenty-six years have I been to one of those big shows where bands play and people jump around (I'm getting this right, yeah?). But tonight I'm - somewhat impulsively - going to see Nightwish. It is both exciting and sort of scary.

It has to be deliberate, so... [Jan. 29th, 2008|10:39 am]
[mood |frustratedfrustrated]

Every program on my laptop has decided I don't have a CD/DVD writer any more. I quite clearly do, and all the stuff I've installed myself (iTunes etc) agrees with me, but no, according to every program I actually need, there's no writer. I won't begin to go in to how frustrating and annoying this is, particularly when I have Pirates of Penzance DVDs to make and distribute. Yeah, that show finished over six months ago.

But anyway, I called Sony today to see if they could help me (as I suspected, they've got no idea, but we may eventually accidentally hit the solution) and it turns out that their hold music - on endless loop - is Evanescence's "Call Me When You're Sober".

Coincidence? I think not.

You never call me when you're sober
You only want it cause it's over

Yes, Sony. I only called you because I have a problem. I'm sorry. I'll try to call sometime everything's going peachy as well, okay?

Edit: Ooh, we did hit on the solution! I still suspect it was accidental, though.

Proud to be Australian [Jan. 27th, 2008|10:41 am]
[Tags|, ]
[mood |tiredtired]

I went into the city for the Australia Day festivities yesterday, which is something I can't say I've ever done before. Pancakes on the Rocks, the Rocks markets, a drink at a pub and sitting on the grass for five hours or so watching musicians (Evermore, Something for Kate, and Kate Miller-Heidke), followed by a cocktail at Jackson's on George - I'm feeling very Australian.

PhotosCollapse )

Caught up with Richard Glover's column in the SMH this morning (the column was from yesterday) and had to share. He's listed 43 ways you know you're Australian. Here's the link to the article, but I think the SMH website is a little difficult to get into without signing up, so I've also copy-and-pasted the text below:

You know you're Australian if you believe it makes perfect sense for a nation to decorate its highways with large fibreglass bananas, prawns and sheep.Collapse )

Regarding number 27 - Richard Glover has forgotten to take into account that once the name has been shortened, "-y" or "-a" may be added to the end, which can make the name as long as it was to begin with (or even longer, sometimes). "Kazzy" is just as long as "Karen" but clearly filled with three times the love. ;)

Otherwise, it is so true about Wagon Wheels, and it isn't just Kiwis we consider ours - we appropriate Brits like Naomi Watts as well. And there's nothing secret about my pride in our killer wildlife.

And according to Wikipedia, Evermore is a NZ band. The line-up for Australia Day was billed as "all-Australian". Hee.
