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.

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. )

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!
