Oh, crap.

And it is crap.

But, crap.

They're making a Runaways movie?

With Brian K. Vaughn in charge, apparently. Hmm.
rowanberries: (Duuuuuuuuuude.)
IIII went to see Indiana Jones today.


Non-spoilery reaction: I liked it.

Spoilery reaction )

In conclusion: It had its issues, but the spirit was kept true, and that's what counts. You should see it.

Sssssooooo, went to see Vantage Point. It was originally meant to be The Other Boleyn Girl, but one of our memebers was late, and the other couldn't make it, so we switched. Bearing in mind I went in with two margaritas down me... Load of old bollocks.


And it started out so promisingly! The premise was good - multiple viewpoints slowly unfolding the mystery behind a presidential assassination. Exciting! Right? Wrong. Why? If you can call it, it probably happens, that's why. Spoilers here. )

I just. Why? It could have been so good. POV exploration of motive! Opportunity! Twists and turns! Lack of blatant bigotry! But noooo. Can't have that. Screw you, Hollywood.
rowanberries: (Helium cat)

Is there any way I actually want to watch Something Borrowed? I'm... scared to. It's really sad that even the possibility of a pairing can make me that worried. Although I guess it's also one I love breaking up (Not a spoiler! These are just my fears.) It'll have to wait until later, anyhow - going into Special Collections (where the history lives) and reading Women's Own issues from the 50s. Yes. They are hilarious. If you're good, I'll bring back funny quotes.

Additionally! Finally saw V for Vendetta, with was a nice combination of awesome, heartbreaking and hilariously silly. When I finally renew Havelock's account, I really have to get some screencaps for great knife action. Not the, er. Blurry ones, though. His don't do that.

rowanberries: (Milliways/Puppets)

Well, this has been nice! Yesterday I went and saw Millibrits and assorted related persons, which was awesome, even if [ profile] avariel_wings does still insist on tickling me when photos are being taken. :(! There was drink and cackling and injokes and minor plotting. *Smile!*

Today I have not done much, although due to a meme in the Milliways back room, I did get briefly inspired into creating great fanart of Shelley, Harth and Jack. >_> Oh yes. I have The Talent.

Aaaand now I'm bored again. Alas!

Maybe I should try doing Havelock, Nico and Ducky...

Coffee makes the world go round, the world go round, the world go round! Coffee makes the world go round, it makes the world go round!

This comic is adorable.


Been having apathy problems, but now I am GOOD.

Young Wizards rules.

So does Avatar, and despite it's many problems, Heroes still has me hooked.

rowanberries: (Timezones)
Here is an oops-I-haven't-updated-in-a-while entry!

I had my sister over for the weekend, which is why I wasn't around much: Mainly, I spent the time introducing her to series two Heroes and Avatar in general, which predictably, she loved. Ummm.

Today! My Science and History tutor set up a quiz for us - basically a reference-hunt. Here, have a look! Why were these three titles chosen for weekly topic headers? 1789 and All That, Imperial Nature (about C19th botanists and classification) and The Ringing Grooves of Change (about Victorian period industrial advances.) I won. :D! Man, I haven't felt so geeky in a long time. It feels gooood. And then we all got chocolate. :D I ♥ Professor Endersby.

Then there was choir, which, my god. I love it so much. I've missed singing so much in the two years I've been at Uni without it. We're doing A Ceremony of Carols for a concert at the end of term, which is really lovely, and unusual, too. We've got a few more pieces, as well, including a very pretty arrangement of Away in a Manger. *sighs happily* Anyone who thinks female soprano voices are squeaky and unattractive should be made to come and listen to some of these pieces. I have a minor girlcrush on one of our soloist's voices, it's that lovely. And one piece is so fantastic I keep wanting to learn how to vid just to try and make an Aang-centric one with it. >_> never mind that it's about, you know, Jesus, not the Avatar. It's close enough! Mind you, I do wish they'd run through one or two of the chorus parts a little more. Some of us can't read music so well, conductor-man!


Ummm... Got my Jack-meta on over here earlier...

And that's pretty much it. What have you all been up to?

rowanberries: (Me hee!)
High!Sokka makes my life.

EDIT: HAHAHAHA ZUKO HAS A DAAAAAATE. Oh man. Bless his little heart. He really has no idea, has he?
rowanberries: (Ahahaha but!)
So, I read HP7.

All in all, OMGEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! But then again, *nitpickity* )

*grins* Chat in comments? I'm going away for a week tomorrow, but I'm very curious to hear your opinions.

There will also, some time, be a Millicon report. But be assured that it rocked hardcore, and I was utterly delighted to see so many people, and have them be as - if not more! - awesome than I had imagined.

Now I must go and dye my little sister's hair.
rowanberries: (Default)
Okay, so.

I swear I was going to be sensible about this.

But... but... Eeeeee.

Oh, those silly, silly, adorable boys. And their constant companion, Daddy Issues.

And I'm not a shipper, I don't think, but oh god do I see where the Wincesters are coming from. Oh dear. Yes, writers, very macho and all around heterosexual show. Quite. *headpat*

I have a new anti-drug.

EDIT: Dean, do not put your face near the hook! Bloody hell. Is this going to be the new, 'Kim, don't - oh, you did. Well.'?

RESURRECTED CORPSE OF EDIT: Oh, boys. Why can't you be that adorable to each other in person?

Or is that a boy thing?

1) Well, back at Uni.

2) The brand new wireless thinger we were upgraded to at the end of last term has turned out to be far worse than the one we had before - housemate Debbie was on the phone for about an hour last night trying to fix it, but nothing. They're sending us a new one, while in the meantime it cuts out every five-ten minutes. AIM, for this reason, is a bit out of the question. I'm actually fairly zen about it, since I have a lot of work to do these next couple of days, and enforced lack of AIM might help me get down to it... but boy will I be angry if it's still like this by Friday.

3) Courses... well, actually, the two I've had so far have been on the dull side. Worryingly enough, one was Magic and Superstition, but I'll hold out, since he was just wittering on about how this was 'cultural history' we were doing, and going over the course outline, rather than just getting down to teaching. English Society... well, I had her last year. You know those people that put pauses

really randomly in the middle of sentences for no apparent reason? Yes. That's her. It makes her supremely difficult to listen to without drifting off, especially since she is the living, female equivalent of Professor Binns. (I have nothing against dates and rebellions, I just think there's a little more to the subject, you know?) Mind you, it did give me the giggles when she said "...The Glorious Revolution, which I started

Really, Prof? Wow, looking good for your age,

...talking about at the beginning of this lecture."


4) Hoboy. I need a to-do list: a) Finish Bibliography and essay plan, b) If possible, write out introduction, c) Wash hair, if possible, no time tomorrow, d) TAG SLOWTIMES sorryDebi. e) Renew paid accounts, f) Bed EARLY. Oh, and g) Clean, since it's my job this week.

5) A lot of people are having a bad time lately, looks like. :( It really sucks when that happens, and there's nothing that can be done except distribute virtual hugs. Hopefully it's partly January Blues - dull days do tend to bring you down, especially when there's other problems, too. Hope everyone feels better, soon.

6) Dammit, Professor Livesey, I WANT MY ESSAY. *Stamps foot* Other people have theirs! Thursday before Christmas, yeah, right.

7) *Sigh* Stuck here for an hour and a half. Talk to me? *Puppy eyes*
rowanberries: (Duuuuuuuuuude.)


More later when coherent.

Also: Fuck. I need to retcon.

ETA: Spoilers in comments, yo.
