A TV on DVD 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!

including mini series, it's more than I thought )


Mom and I have been rewatching Band of Brothers, or really I wanted to do a rewatch and she'd never seen it but had heard me and Jay talk about how great it is, so now she's watching it for the first time with me.
It's been a while since I've watched the whole show from start to finish (we're on episode 8 now) and strangely enough this time around I'm really seeing how violent it is. Maybe it's because before I'd always had my slash-goggles firmly on and wasn't focusing on the violence but instead on the characters and their chemistry with each other. I think it's also because I'm acutely aware of the fact that I'm watching it with someone who doesn't like war-movies because of the amount of violence in them.

So stuff;

- True Blood has fully drawn me back in. It’s that damn theme song, it’s the exact right amount of filthy. Something that isn’t always true of the show. ;)
- Generation Kill is still my favorite tv-love. So much so that I’m even reading the book too, something I never did with Band of Brothers where the whole ‘this story is based on real men’ was just ... I don’t know. Maybe that story hit a lot closer to home than GK or something. Anyway I quite like the book too, it’s helping me understand and put into a larger context some of the things in the mini-series.
- Speaking of Band of Brothers I’m currently downloading Blu-Ray rips of that show and the sample was so amazingly hi-def. Pretty, pretty pretty! It’s making me doubly happy because ever since I started watching GK, I’ve felt like re-watching BoB as well and I couldn’t because I lend my DVDs to someone else. (Suck it, Polonius sometimes is is okay to be a borrower or lender.)
ETA: it is now January the 22nd (0:31 AM, but still.) and I have still only watched one whole episode those Blu-Ray rips. My friend also still has my own boxset. Yeah.

Oh Bill, such a good little vampire. Ahahaha

Fuck it. I'm ordering Generation Kill, now. *grabby hands* I can't wait two more weeks!

Guh. This past week my brain has been eaten by Generation Kill. My obsession with military men, let me show you it. heh
It began with Band of Brothers and Jarhead, and even though I tried to hold it off (I lasted a whole year and everything), it definitely grabbed me now. My only complaint is that there seem to be very few hi-res caps available. I can’t make my own because I’m watching it in .avi format and don’t have the DVDs. Yet. I’m incredibly tempted to go out and buy the DVDs tomorrow, but on the other hand it would probably be smarter to wait until I get back from Paris and actually know if I have money to spent on it in the first place. Argh!

Anyway, let me talk about just how good this show is; the biggest surprise, for me, was/is how unbelievably hot Alexander Skarsgard is as Sgt. Brad Colbert. Really, really hot. He’s a great actor with a fantastic sarcastic (rhyming!) voice, the stuff he says man. The monologues he throws out there like it’s nothing and that are both intelligent and full of curse words, are amazing. I always knew sarcasm was a thing for me, but this just takes it to a whole new level. I’d only ever seen him in True Blood as Eric the scary asshole vampire, who as a character rated below even Jason for me. (At least Jason did something interesting every once in a while, like get a monster erection that won’t go down. /sarcasm) I never got further than episode 8 so I have no idea if his character was developed further in later episodes. Although I do plan to start watching again in the near future, if only because all the crack makes me laugh.
But back to GK; it’s so good because it’s realistic and current, but also because it’s down right funny in places. Mostly places where Ray Person opens his mouth (which is to say, a lot), who is like the George Luz of GK only high and talking a lot more smack.
The whole cast is incredible, which makes me hope they take home at least some of the Emmys they’ve been nominated for and we get to see them all up there in their suits. :D Of course I’m not doing the show and all that it is about any justice by just talking about how hot the actors in it are but, well I never talk about hot boys!
I hope to do a more elaborate post including quotes and caps from the series once I have the DVDs.

I was talking about going to Paris earlier, which made me go back and look through my pictures from my last visit there.
In other words, Paris; a picspam. )

Last year when the big bangs were being posted I was without internet so I ended up not reading a whole lot of them. This year I'm hoping to compile a list of recs. I read mostly J2, but some cracky/humor other fics will probably slip in as well.

Recs )

Dear people who post picspams,

I get it, picspams are fun, I've made my fair share of them. But could you please for the love of all that is good and holy (holy and good? I never know in what order to write that. Maybe I should come up with my own version instead.), remember to remove the link to photobucket or wherever from your preview image?
Or better yet, change the link to the post containing the picspam so that I don't have to search the rest of your (cross)post for a link.

Thank you,

Me

Hoping it will actually get me to update my LJ on a more regular basis. :)

The full-screen thing is pretty fun, makes me feel a bit like Barney, haha.

End test

Feel free to tl:dr.

* The neighbours across the street have a new dog and it will not shut up. According to my sister my annoyance with this, means I hate all animals. I don't care; barking while I'm trying to sleep is inexcusable and also the main reason I don't have a dog.

* I had the weirdest dream the other day. I was at the mall and I ran into one of my high school teachers, who upon seeing me promptly dragged me back to school because I never graduated. And that wasn't even the weirdest part; instead of going to the high school, we went to an elementary school.

* Thursday I have work until midnight. Yay: Money! Nay: I'm already tired just thinking about staying up that late after going to school the whole day. (Now I feel old...)

* TINA TURNER SATURDAY!!

Huh. Safari makes colors more colorfulvibrant, never knew that. I like the new beta version, but I miss Firefox's add-ons. Looking at LJ's ugly ad's is no fun, yo. :P

You know how some days you think I'm going to actually practice piano today. But you end up making icons of Veronica Mars and Life for half the afternoon instead? Yeah, it's going to be one of those days.

I saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button last night. It's probably not a good sign that the man who was struck by lighting seven times was most memorable to me. I did like it though, the photography was stunning. It was just one of those movies that kind of wash over you and then that's it.

Okay, today I finally watched Music Within, which has been sitting on my To Watch shelf for many, many months. It was so fantastically amazing that I can't even...
I keep trying to come up with a comprehensible reaction to this movie but all I've got is this; askdflef ddheiffjdhe!!1!!! Music Within stars Ron Livingston, Melissa George and a absolutely brilliant Michael Sheen. Go find it and see it!
