prunesquallormd: (Effy - Lost in thought)
Currently I'm playing adoring host to Great Cthulhu himself (well, his avatar anyway, in the form of an evilly cute small green plush) who's on the third leg on his World Domination Tour (as organised by his worshipers at There'll probably be pictures at some point, if he doesn't drive me mad and eat my soul.

Chris P.'s 40th birthday bash down in The Smoke was lots of fun, if tiring. And next weekend I have another 40 (a joint one this time) down in Stratford on Avon. There'll be camping involved. In England. In May. WHY GOD? WHY? (Need to get me a MUCH WARMER sleeping bag, I think).

V. sleepy now (but at least I have tomorrow off, so yay\o/).
Have a little meme and then it's time for bed.
Memes and vids. )

One of my favourite sayings that, mainly because it's so apt. I've only ever heard it from one person, mind you, a Welshman (and whose first language is Welsh) who translated it from the Welsh for me. He could have made it up on the spot for all I know. I wouldn't really care either way. It's still very appropriate.

So yeah, kind of a rough few weeks, emotionally speaking. Been struggling to stay positive, although the spring-like weather of the last couple of days has helped to lift my mood some.
It's always the same at this time of year, really. February is my Long Dark Teatime of the Soul (TM Douglas Adams :)) but March isn't far away I guess, and things usually start to look up around then. Fingers crossed!
clicky :) )

There are lots of things I should be doing. Packing for one, grocery shopping too, and tidying up. Oh, and there's emails to write, and comments too.
So of course, I'm snuggled up on the sofa, drinking hot chocolate and watching 'Chelmsford 123'.

Maybe I'll post properly later, but right now I'm just going use this as a place to dump all my favourite fanvids so they're all in one place. I've posted all these before, but they're all rather fabulous, and well worth another look :)

Lots and lots of pretty things )
prunesquallormd: (Effy - Lost in thought)
Well, I have memes to do. Also, for no other reason than that I put myself through the ordeal of the watching the rest of 'Threads' 25-odd years after seeing the first episode and being too freaked out/terrified to wach the rest (yay. Gut-wrenchingly brutal nuclear war dramas FTW :/) I kind of want to talk about that at some point. But both of those require actual thought. So mostly this is going to be a fanvid dump.

First off though, I just want to say that I finally saw the last episode of season 3 of Battlestar Galactica today. Oh my god. OH MY GOD. I really, really wasn't expecting that to happen.
Little bit of a break now though, I think. It's so good, but SOOOOOO STRESSFUL.

Anyway, thanks to [profile] shan_3414 I'm feeling rather nostalgic for Farscape. So I went looking for fanvids :).
(All rather spoilery, of course :/).
Under the cut ... )

I have comments to reply to, and even more to post generally, but it's bedtime. So tired :/

I couldn't not post this, though. The ever lovely and talented [profile] shan_3414 made it. So, so pretty, and so, so awesome :D

I miss them!

I'm going to do a proper post some time soon, honest. You know, with words and stuff. But this whole writer's block thing is really kicking my arse, and it's not just with fiction, either. I'm sure I have stuff to say on, well, lots of things, but I just have no energy, inspiration or motivation to say it. Hey ho.

So, in place of that, I think you should take a few minutes to take a look at this! It was posted at [ profile] steamfashion a few days ago, and it's just gorgeous. It's just a deserted building - an old finishing school, apparently, possibly in the US - but, well, there's something about deserted buildings. They're equal parts creepy, beautiful, atmospheric, and just plain sad. So much history, so many lives and stories, all gone to ruin and decay.
More than anything else, this makes me think of Session 9, which is one of my favourite horror films. It's set in a deserted asylum (with the guy who plays Horatio Caine in CSI Miami, but he's far less annoying in this, thank god!), and it's utterly terrifying, but in a good way! Anyway, although the vid gives every impression that you're going to see something appalling around the next corner, I'm glad to say nothing ever comes of it. It's just a rather creepy but beautiful vid, with a lovely soundtrack. Give it a look!

Cut for general geekery. )

So many emails to write, and comments to write/answer, and a killer case of writer's block to try and get over. Also, a to-read pile that makes me weep to look at it (I figured out a few years ago that it would take me at least five years to read the books I own that I haven't read yet. It would probably be more like 10 now. On the plus side, I'm sure they'll make excellent kindling when the zombie apocalypse comes. For which the following advice may be useful:D
Photobucket). However, I'm ridiculously tired and my sinuses are kicking off, so instead I'm spending the evening watching DVDs and spamming LJ with pretties. So, not too much change there then.
Prettttty :D )
prunesquallormd: (Karen Gillan - OMG<3)


While I'm posting pretties, [ profile] fembuck recently described this vid as "Cara. Kahlan. Making out. A lot." Need I say more?
I kind of (kind of?) hate the song, but whatever, LOOK AT THE PRETTY <3

Talking of pretty, has anyone else been watching Lost Girl? I have [ profile] twistomatic to thank for the rec, and I know [ profile] flister's rather taken with it :D, but how about the rest of you? Succubus and cute friend kicking arse, pretty, pretty people, lots of sexy, and just good, clean fun :D.
There are download links for first 11 episodes here. Check it out. I don't think you'll be disappointed :)

I hardly ever do memes, but I've been BAD at posting recently (I plan far more posts than I actually make. I'm probably like a lot of people in that respect) and this is one of those classics that's been doing the rounds again recently, so I figured, what the hell!
The only difference here is that the characters must all be fictional, other than that, it's pretty self explanatory :p

[ profile] cobalt_siren, who's lovely but, on the strength of this choice, EVIL, gave me three of my favourite characters ever. I've been pondering this for a couple of days, but I think I've come up with the perfect solution :D
prunesquallormd: (Default)
I've sat down a few times over the last couple of weeks to post here, and just haven't been able to find any motivation at all, or think of anything much worth writing about. Of course, I probably still won't be able to think of anything worth posting writing about, but I'm not entirely sure why that should stop me :P

So yeah, lacking in motivation, inspiration, and everything else recently. God, I've not written a word of fiction since I finished that little piece of Ginny/Luna/Pansy ridiculousness. I was so wanting not to take two months on chapter 2 of my Narnia story (which is how long long it took me to write the first part), and now it's two and a half months later and I haven't even started yet. I made the mistake of starting to think about plot, and oh how I suck at plot. Every time I actually put pen to paper (hey, I'm old-fashioned like that :)) I get completely overwhelmed and then just start scribbling more notes on things that aren't particularly relevant to anything. Gah.
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is out on December 10th. I'm really hoping to have chapter 2 up then. I'll be very annoyed at myself if I don't.

And have I mentioned how much I'm looking forward to The Voyage of the Dawn Treader? I even went onto 'Into the Wardrobe' to see if they had anything to say about it. Of course, I'd completely forgotten that it's entirely dominated by rabid Christian evangelicals, which is the reason I stopped visiting in the first place. God, I loathe them, and they're particularly annoying because they have canon and the author's intentions on their side, and obviously they consider their own interpretation of the text to be the only valid one. Grrr.

Anyway, what else?
Ooooh, has anyone heard about Sucker Punch? It looks awesome. I have no idea what it's about, cos really the trailer doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense :D, but still, awesome.

Also, This is relevant to my interests :D. REDHEADS, YAY ♥ ♥ ♥
LOL. Sorry. Not obsessed, honest :p

Oh, and I'm posting this vid purely because I heard this song for the first time a couple of weeks ago (as part of a rather fabulous Assassin!Adrian Andrews mix (f-locked, because the person who made it was too bashful to post it publicly. Silly ♥ ) and I LOVE IT (really gonna have to get hold of the album). I don't even know Veronica Mars. Is it any good?

Oh, and one more thing. I'm a little late here, and it's been all around my flist for a few days so most of you probably already know about it, but for those of you who don't and may be interested, the Queerly Awesome Comment Ficathon is in full swing. Go, prompt, write, have fun :)

prunesquallormd: (Ginny/Luna- our own sunlit days 2)
God, so busy. And obviously today I managed to fritter away most of today being all knackered and needing recover from the rest of the week. Annoying! (Also annoying: a boiler that only works about 50% of the time, and so I have to boil water to wash the other 50%. Twice, I've had someone to look at it, but because the fault is intermittent, it's kind of hard to track down. If it carries on, he'll have to start replacing the expensive bits. Boo).

The Skins Big Bang seems to be a massive success, and I'm very much enjoying my beta-ing duties. I occasionally think I've bitten off a little more than I can chew, but hey, I like doing it, so (it's like: I have actual permission to be pedantic at people, and they can't complain. How good is that? :p ).
And talking of the Skins BB, our glorious leader (AKA [ profile] shan_3414 :)) made this a few days ago, and god, it's so lovely. It makes all kinds of nostalgic. Just beautiful.
