Well that was a good movie, but I wasn't expecting it to be bad. Here are some random thoughts:

Martin Freeman looks better with the hobbit wig than he does with short hair. His ears however... well the hobbit ears were not quite working for me. Or the feet - too big.

I love that they did include the Dwarves singing that fun song about what Bilbo hates - I still kinda miss the song in Bree that Frodo did, but I understand why that one was left out while this one could be kept.

Kili is cute (in a "Hey! Gorgeous guy!" sort of way, but as some opinions I saw around have, he a little out of place amongst the rest. I also subscribe to another opinion I have seen around that he is very young - maybe even still in the tag end of adolescence for a Dwarf.

Now the one who really melts my loin into butter (to borrow a quote from Jared Padalecki) is Thorin. I will say however is that I like him better in the current time - the grey streaks make him look great and I was not very impressed with the curly hair in the flashbacks. Plus I prefer straight hair just that bit more.

Balin. The white-haired Dwarf who spoke of how Thorin fought the white orc - is that the same Balin who would later reclaim Moria only to lose it again when the Balrog awakes?

I really liked the discussion scene at Rivendell, with Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel and Sauruman. Also, I did spot a few fun little hark-backs, or is that hark-forwards? "I never doubted you for a second." and the scene where Bilbo first puts on the ring. Cute little continuity nods to LotR.

Now I want porn. Thorin/Bilbo porn. Somewhere where I saw those comments about Kili's age and such I also saw comments about that as a pairing. Not a bad idea.

Meanwhile on my wishlist of things I don't expect to see: Michael/Dean, with Michael wearing Adam, and bottoming. Just because I damn well wish it existed.

Excuse me while I fail to know what my feelings are doing.

Maybe I'll go hide in The Sims 3. Or go download that gay BG romance mod and hide in Faerûn.

In other news: I have a Matt Cohen icon. I want him back in season 8, because another time travel episode with John would be fun. John and Mary.

I have just renewed my account and also gained a heap of icon space.

I am going nuts with SPN icons, namely 7.17 ones I picked up recently.

Such as this one.

In other things, I R tired. Liek Whoa. I stayed up last night and did the shopping in the morning, and was hoping to catch Wrath of the Titans before it left the cinemas, but I started getting dizzy in the supermarket, so movie didn't happen. I will probably have to do a late viewing - the movie's only on at 6:30 PM for the next two nights, though I haven't looked at Monday's timetable. I'm not that patient though, I'd like to go see it tomorrow.

I did sleep after I got home today, but only for something like 4 hours and I'm still feeling the effects but I can't go back to sleep. I hope I'm better tomorrow afternoon.

So I watched 7.17, finally. Oh I also watched 7.16, but that's beside the point...

It's actually a damn good episode. Angst by the truckload, but good.

This gif I found however says everything I feel:

Still Waiting

Also, I still think Sera Gamble is the Devil.

Meanwhile, I found a plotbunny comm! [livejournal.com profile] spn_bunnies!

I will be dumping all my plotbunnies there, though if anyone wants to peruse them, the comm seems to be set so only members can read posts. It is however free entry. I already posted one up - a post-7.17 bunny at that!

You know I don't usually outwardly react to fanfic and stuff, because I'm kinda the Phlegmatic Non-Reactive Person. I don't actually Laugh Out Loud when I type "LOL" to stuff, I don't usually outwardly cry about anything fannish.

Oh I may say I'm internally crying or internally flailing, or some other internal reaction, but that's internal, not external. There's no actual laugh, no actual flappy hands.

Post 7.17 fic? I am having tears. Real ones. and the accompanying runny nose. And tissue usage when I don't have a bin really near enough to put them in (since Vec, the bin's moved over to next to Mum's chair).


...I don't know how I'm going to survive watching the episode.

Jared Padalecki's child is born. It's a boy.
mimi_sardinia: (Castiel)

Random Acts is a charity that grew out of Misha Collins' Twitter following. I specifically went for the t-shirt with Castiel on it.
mimi_sardinia: (Dean)
So I'm starting back at the start of the series, now that I have it available.

Jared isn't the only one that one can see the age difference on, Jensen actually does look younger in this as compared to even just season 4. I can also see what someone (one of the three main guys) was saying about growly speech - Jensen's tone is a fair bit lighter than it is in s4. I blame that on Misha too - apparently so do they, because the same thing I found about growly speech tones also said it seemed like an ongoing growl-off between Jensen and Misha.

Misha is surprisingly easy to blame things on. Fanfic is for the blame that can't be laid on Misha.
mimi_sardinia: (Fuck Yeah Misha!)
It looks like I will be branching out in my social networking, and I blame it all on MISHA FUCKING COLLINS.

It's not many fandoms you have the actors actively supporting the slash ship for their character.

ETA: I has a Twitter. Blame has been levelled.

I suppose this makes me a Minion now.
mimi_sardinia: (Sam and Dean)
I has meh laybuy off. You know, the one with the first three seasons of SPN in it.

I also got The Sims 3: Master Suite Stuff, and pre-ordered the next major expansion.

I don't know when I'll get around loading MSS, I am currently doing so much of my online stuff upstairs, on Vec, and haven't been playing much of the Sims - 3 or Medieval.

Hmm... I do wonder if anyone has made SPN sims...

ETA: I am thinking of leaving season 5 for a while so I can watch seasons 1-3.

Also, resorting icons again so I could get one of both Winchester brothers in, and a couple of others.

Also: Totally addicted to this song.

Jensen Ackles on Good News Week.

Oh My Fragging Primus.

(Although, I wonder when this happened, though given the team leader of the non-Robins team, that cross-channel promotion quip is probably meant to be ironic. ETA: Caption states 2008. Oh well, I've found it now anyway, thank goodness people put this stuff on YouTube!)

Of course, I am now sad that I missed that episode! I need to watch GNW more!
mimi_sardinia: (Default)
I have laybuyed seasons 1-3, and bought season 6 of SPN.

Season 6 was up around $70, but I guess it's still new on the market.

I love the "wormstache". Mishmish is a god.
mimi_sardinia: (Jimmy)
I am up to episode 4.20 - "The Rapture".

Excuse me while I squee. In colour.


For those who don't know SPN, I squee, because it's the episode for the guy in my icon.

No, that is not Castiel, it's his Vessel, Jimmy.

I have been reading Jimmy fic basically since the start, and slag he's an interesting character! Now I get to see the one episode he's actually in, instead of being - as I phrased in in a comment on [livejournal.com profile] a_carnal_mink's essay about him - the silent face of the angel trying to save the world.

Now I really get to see the best of Misha Collins.
mimi_sardinia: (Cas - Sexy and I know it)

  • Icons liek whoa!
mimi_sardinia: (Castiel)
Okay, Jared Padalecki is cute too (note: I say "too" because I have already concluded that Misha Collins is cute).

Also, I am already considering further investigation into Wincest. Previous expeditions into that territory has had a mandatory inclusion of Castiel - i.e. Wincestiel, or at least that's the label I've seen on AO3.

This episode I have playing (4.06) is hilarious. Next episode has Cas again.

P.S. That episode? *Squee!* Cas!

Good story too.
mimi_sardinia: (BAMF Castiel)
You know, for some reason I feel like running an ongoing track of how getting into a new fandom goes.

Ooh look! Bullet points! )

We had problems with the new blu-ray player when I set it up last night - no signal was getting through to the TV.

I went out earlier today and bought a HDMI cable, that fixed it right up. Mum may still be watching Aliens.

I also saw some canisters that might make good display cases for the felties - crystal clear, plastic, reasonably secure lids - but haven't bought them yet because I have probably already dug into rent/phone money. I'll get them next fortnight.

Haven't got very far in SPN - stopped at 4.03 last night, but I'll get back to it. I don't feel I have a rightful footing to say anything in SPN fandom circles unless I watch the DVDs, and I already have plot bunnies.

This song seems ironic in conjunction with SPN.
mimi_sardinia: (Orin Crazy)
I feel I should be quoting one of the songs that I put in my latest chapter of Thousand Suns - I'm going slightly mad.

I went and did it, I bought two seasons Supernatural on DVD. I would have even considered putting the complete box of all six seasons on laybuy if I wasn't so impatient, but I am impatient, and the individual season sets were only $30.

And it's not the first two seasons I bought, it is seasons 4 and 5. Yes, I am starting in at the point that Castiel comes in. I am already a fangirl of the nerdy angel. And if Destiel (i.e. Dean/Castiel pairing).

In other things, Mum bought a Blu-Ray player. It cost around $150. That means that when I am feeling more up to it (tired as the Pit right now), I will be able to watch SPN without having to put up with Xenmas' controller. Why? Because Blu-Ray players play DVDs, so I can move my DVD player back up here and leave the Blu-Ray downstairs for Mum to use, since she ignores the built-in DVD player in the TV.

I need a Cas icon.
mimi_sardinia: (Default)
If I turn into a Supernatural fan, don't be surprised.

Also, blame [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants.

Random observation: I have so far only watched one single video of SPN clips (mostly because I need to avoid YouTube because it's a huge black hole for my monthly data, and this month is less than a week in) and the first thing I can say? Both Dean and Castiel have deeper voices than I expected. Also, I started to watch a second video that had ann interview of Mischa Collins, his voice is not quite that deep, so he must affect it a bit - maybe to make Castiel sound serious.

Also, blame fanfic - like always.

And I'm still suffering from an obsession for certain Lady Gaga songs, such as Yoü and I, Hair and Americano. The opening line of the first is slated until further notice for the scene in Thousand Suns when I introduce Mareph. I may also be able to use lines out of Hair some time, just not in the current chapter, which has stalled for the moment.
