GUYS I SAW SIMON AMSTELL LIVE LAST NIGHT

IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER

LET ME TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT

spoiler warning for 'Numb' if you're planning to see it and don't want to know what he talks about )

I just looked at my Simon Amstell tag and it turns out I titled my entry about 'Do Nothing' with hearteyes as well. FIGURES.

(More One Direction posts to come in the next few days, don't worry. XD)

Hoooooooomg, fucking Boardwalk Empire, man. I don't even know if anyone on my flist watches it but I think I need a moment to get these feelings out.

Spoilers for 2x11: Under God's Power She Flourishes. )

In conclusion, Jimmy/Gillian should probably not be my OTP on this show, but it so is.

I'm gonna go back to working on that Remus/Sirius mix now, even though it keeps making me like, burst into tears at spontaneous moments.

...Yeah, this is another Weeds post. APOLOGIES. THERE WILL PROBABLY BE A LOT OF THOSE FOR A WHILE. But I decided to start rewatching the show right from the beginning, and it turned out to be an AWESOME DECISION, because IT IS SO GOOD. I started watching the show in January last year, and devoured the first few seasons in a week or something stupid, so it's all pretty hazy in my memory. Mostly, I remember not really getting it but still getting weirdly addicted anyway. And it's strange because I always thought it only got REALLY good in the later seasons, but it turns out IT WAS AMAZING ALL ALONG.

If you do not watch the show, I urge you to start. I don't do this a lot, but seriously - I'm starting to think Weeds might be my favourite show ever. And if you DO watch the show, and it's been a while since you saw the earlier seasons, I urge you to rewatch them! It's SO interesting to see how things started out, where the cracks in the foundations began to appear. The foreshadowing is genius and you can tell that certain things were planned for a long time.



THOUGHTS ON SEASON ONE. )

I'm already starting season 3, so, I will probably do a post like this for each season. BECAUSE I'M A RIDICULOUS HUMAN BEING.

SO CAN WE TALK ABOUT WEEDS? I'm really enjoying the new season, but I was too busy enjoying it to do a post on each episode right after it aired, and so instead I've ended up with a bunch of (flaily) meta and screencaps for everything so far. And it feels like the sort of thing one posts on Tumblr, but everything I have to say is tinged with mother/son incest and I feel more safe talking about that here. THOUGH NOT BY MUCH. Last November I made a similar post (just about the season 6 finale) and was like "more on the mother/son incest thing later UNLESS IT WILL MAKE ME LOSE FRIENDS" and then I never posted again because I was still too scared to talk about it. -_-

I don't know, I mean, I feel like I'm just expanding on what the show portrays, but if that kind of thing seriously squicks you, I guess don't read this? Ughhh I totally used to hate the idea of parent/child but suddenly mother/son is the most interesting thing in the world to me. DAMN YOU, WEEDS. DAMN YOU TOO, JOHN LENNON. (Long story.) Honestly, though, it's more about the relationships as they are, as opposed to me wanting or expecting them to start making out any time soon. But still! Feel free to judge me! I'm judging myself a little bit, so. (Speaking of things I should probably be judged for: Alexander Gould is growing up well, right? ...Right?)



Season 7, episodes 1 to 3. )

MORE OF THIS TO COME, IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED. Probably even if no one is interested, mannn I love this show, I don't even care.

HEY so I kind of forgot about the fact that the Narnia cast might still be like, going to events and stuff. (Except Ben, obvs, with Killing Bono and everything.)

And then there were the Empire Awards and this heart-meltingly sweet moment occurred and I was all preoccupied with realising that I ship James McAvoy/Keira Knightley and like, duh, why did I not realise that before, and then I wanted to write them and part of my brain was like "Hey, you also wanted to write James with Ben?" and so it just added him into the mix, and I was like "MAYBE BEN WAS AT THESE AWARDS TOO" and decided to Google it for potential fic realism, and Google was like "No, but you know who was? Just Georgie and Will P., looking adorable and couple-y. Nbd."

And I was like OH YES, THEM. And they are adorable and couple-y, and also Georgie's shoes are the cutest. THEY SAY 'LET'S DANCE' ON THEM.



Moar. )


The end.

ONLY NOT, because then my brain had some more delayed realisations and WHAAAAT, JAMES AND GEORGIE WERE AT THE SAME EVENT AND THERE ARE NO PICTURES OF THEM TOGETHER, WHAT THE HELL, UNIVERSE? THAT IS NOT COOL.

I mean, they were at the same event, though. That's pretty cool. And I want to theorise about how that went down but wtf, I am legit writing James McAvoy/Keira Knightley/Ben Barnes??? SEND HELP.

...I feel like this entire post reads like something produced by the LJ Random Text Generator.

Edit: Oh my god you guys!

JAMES AND GEORGIE REUNITED: PICTURE PROOF )

I SAW DAWN TREADER TONIGHT.

HEARTS. HEARTS IN MY EYES, YOU GUYS.

I am sitting here now with a mug of cocoa all teary-eyed and smiling to myself. I don't know why these movies have such an effect on me, they just do. Something to do with how much the fandom means to me, combined with the fact that I've basically grown up with the movies (moreso than the books even, through my teenage years at least). Idk. They just make me so happy.

When we came out of the cinema, though, my Mum did say "Did it live up to your expectations?" and I realised that it would have been pretty difficult for it not to. Not because my expectations were low, obvs, but because it would have been impressive if they'd managed to disappoint me. I kiiind of love everything they do, so. I'm not the best impartial judge.

I also spent at least half of the movie just mentally drawing hearts around everybody and gazing in wonder at how pretty (and in love) they all are. SO PRETTY. (AND IN LOVE.)

I think with Prince Caspian, I waited til I'd seen it twice before attempting to make a coherent post about it, but...I don't know when I'm going to get to see it again and I'm still on a high.

So here is my attempt at a review-type thing. And it has spoilers. And is kinda longer than I meant for it to be. )

Okay...I'm sure I've forgotten like thirty more things. BUT THIS IS A REALLY LONG POST ALREADY, SO. IDK. IF YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE, PLEASE SQUEE WITH ME. THERE IS MUCH SQUEEING TO BE DONE.

DAWN TREADER PREMIERE DAWN TREADER PREMIERE DAWN TREADER PREMIERE

Okay so I'm gonna just continually update this post with new pictures. EXCITEMENT.

SKANDAR IS WEARING A BOWTIE, YOU GUYS. HE IS NOT WEARING A PICNIC BLANKET OR CONVERSE. HE'S WEARING A SUIT AND A BOWTIE.



MORE. )

DID I MENTION THAT THERE IS FIC IN THE COMMENTS. [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius is amazing and managed to contain her excitement enough to actually put coherent sentences together in the form of stories. Will/Skandar, Skandar/Anna, Will/Anna(ish), Will P. gen, and Ben/Georgie. ♥

CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE WEEDS SEASON SIX FINALE. AND HOW THE ENTIRE SEASON WAS SO AMAZING THAT I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF. I mean, I'm so glad that I didn't give up on it near the end of season 5, because I very nearly did and that would have been a MISTAKE. I'm pretty sure this season is the best it's ever been, and the finale was just...perfect. (Although I'm really, really glad it's been picked up for another season because HOLY CLIFFHANGER BATMAN.)

Spoilers behind the cut. Also a picspam and quotes! )

I keep thinking, there are other shows that are based on this sort of insanity. Where crazy shit happens, and you never know what to expect. But I think Weeds does it better than any other show. It sort of embraces the bizarre, and the writers seem to know when they've written themselves into a corner and they turn it around and make things fresh again. And all without losing sight of the characters and who they are and what they mean to each other.

Like, just for a comparison—The L Word? The crazy shit that happened in The L Word TOTALLY overshadowed everything else, to the point where nobody seemed to be themselves anymore and so it was difficult to care about the characters' struggles—they'd lost their original personalities and were like blank slates for the writers to do whatever they wanted with. But throughout six seasons of Weeds, that hasn't happened. These people are still the people they've always been, the changes in their characters are completely realistic, and the intense undying love they have for each other gets stronger by the episode (and no less believable). ♥ I love it.

It's also making me ship mother/son for the first time in my life. More on that later UNLESS IT WILL MAKE ME LOSE FRIENDS??

Anyway. That was longer than I meant for it to be.

IN CONCLUSION, FUCK YEAH WEEDS.

FIRST OF ALL I think I am going to struggle to pay attention during this movie. EVERYONE IS SO ATTRACTIVE NOW, IT'S DISTRACTING. Skandar is so...manly. HIS VOICE SEEMS SO DEEP ALL OF A SUDDEN. And even though I'm going to miss Will and Anna, it's going to be kind of cool to see Skandar, Georgie, and Ben interacting without them. And um, I kinda approve of Ben with the facial hair, not gonna lie.

Also, is it me, or is it actually really bizarre seeing Will P actually IN the movie after all this time? It's like, we knew about it for so long and I've even written fic about him and stuff, and now that I'm actually seeing him with Skandar and Georgie, it feels so surreal!! But awesome. I also love how Eustace spends the whole trailer basically going "What's going on??? THIS PLACE IS WEIRD."

(POSSIBLY CGI'D) CAMEOS FROM WILL AND ANNA AND TILDA. ♥ Which, btw, "Edmund, I can make you my king...and much more." IS IT JUST ME OR DOES THAT LINE SOUND INAPPROPRIATE. It's probably just me. Carry on.

Auuuuuuugh so excited.

EDIT: Updated to include HD Youtube embed. WHAT, IT WAS NECESSARY.
