Please excuse my nattering on and on and then embedding a video  
I’m sorry to say that I’ve not been very productive lately. I’ve mostly been watching shit. I have now seen Order of the Phoenix, The Simpsons Movie, Ratatouille, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (with hortonhearsawho), Hot Fuzz, most of Doctor Who Season 3… uh… most of Blackpool. And I just watched an episode of Torchwood.

Actually, okay, last night I finally sat down and watched Human Nature and Family of Blood. Oh my god, Baines. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaines. “Headmaster sir good evening sir. Come to give me a caning sir would you like that sir?” I just. God. Both episodes were really well done, Baines is fucking awesome, and John Smith… oh, John Smith. Can’t decide whether to slap him or give him a hug. Probably both. Something about the whole “but I just want a normal life!” thing kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I could probably write on and on for ages about how nothing is that goddamn idyllic, and how “normal” need not be the be-all-end-all… but I’ll resist, because it really boils down to me going "oh stfu, assbutts. >:(" Haha, yeah, real mature.

So yeah, but the end of that story was super sad-making and emotionally manipulative, damn them. And then today I went and watched the third episode of Torchwood, I think it’s called “Ghost Machine.” Uh, yeah. That was also a rather emotionally draining episode to have picked at random. But fuck everyone who doesn’t like Owen. Seriously, oh my god. And Burn Gorman is holyshit actually a good actor. Though I already knew that, because of Bleak House (in which he looks hotter with the longer hair and the period costume, mmm).

Soooo, I really neeeeeed to stop having ideas for fanvids. Because as entertaining as they are, that Windows program really sucks. And also they're incredibly lame. Even the ones I like and the one I made are incredibly lame, and I say that with all love and affection for incredibly lame things. Also, I really should be drawing more. And not futzing with pointless vids that exercise very few of the skills I'm trying to cultivate in school oh god but it's sooooo tempting.

I've also been watching Blackpool lately, speaking of music videos. I love it. David Tennant makes my little heart go pit-a-pat. Second best reason would be here. Watch for the little hip swivel. The best reason, well, I'm embedding it. I just can't not, you see. I watch it over and over.

he was especially excellent in Bleak House.
I think that actually the only episode of Torchwood where i actual felt good about Owen. Without Owen Torchwood wouldnt be the same. but i cant like him because i get too carried away with Ianto and his innocent yet mysterious young Jeeves thing.

Baines...i need not explain my love for Baines.
The 'i want a normal life' was particularly strange. you knew he wasnt going to stay as John Smith so i wasnt particularly worried but it put a whole lot more angst on the doctors character, after the Rose thing.

He was very good in Bleak House, though that sort of means that now I want to have a copy of Bleak House, even though I'm normally not enthusiastic about Dickens.

I tend to often really like slightly morally ambiguous, slimy characters. And, I don't know, so far I've only heard people talking about Owen the big creep, so... hah, I'll just have to see. I've also not seen much of Ianto yet, but he is very young Jeeves-ish.

Baines is awesomely amazing. Just... wow.

And yeah, I hadn't thought about it that way, but you're right. It was like just yet more angst for the Doctor, since no way would he end up staying human. Weird. I also found the superfast falling in love thing weird, but that might just be me.

i think it fitted in with a 'classic' romance thing of that time. it just happens. and its the one thing that proves he's human and not the doctor. falling in love, its human. The Doctor doesn't fall in love [really. the Rose thing was quite strange i will admit. but that took two series to do and you didnt know until the last one she was in].

Bleak House was great. im sad i missed a very episodes when it was on tv. and hes got a great name 'Burn Gorman'!

Theres not much Ianto-time but he does alot of little things in the background that make me love him. just that serious servant thing but hes seems to have so much dignity about it and he has an air of someone more then the receptionist/tea boy that you think hes going to come out with "MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! i control the world!" evil villain action.
and he has amazing acting eyebrows.

That. Was five hundred million billion zillion times better than even my wildest imagining of it.

In other words.... omg give me that show and I will worship you forever.

Oh and what was the site you told me to try to find my TV shows? It began with an "A," but other than that I'm drawing a total blank. hahah

Haha, I'm so glad you liked it! :D What's your email? I'm uploading it, and I can email you the links when it's done. And hopefully they will work for you, although they're kind of big.

And the site I suggested is alluc.org. It's a good place to start, anyway.

Also, OotP sometime this week? When is a good time for you?

marythefan@gmail.com Ooooo I'm soooo excited. Especially since I have sooooo much I have to be doing right now other than watching TV. hahaha

Apparently I'm addicted to the two most impossible shows to find on the Interwebs. [headdesk]

And yes! Fer shizzle. Hummm. Tomorrow isn't good, and some day this week I've got to do some stuff for my mom, but that doesn't have a set date. I'm supposed to see Hairspray with the Stargirls Tuesday but... feh. I'm sort of ambivalent about that little adventure. Although, I think I'm probably stuck. So! Any day except Monday or Tuesday sounds good for me. I think the matinee shows at Plaza are Noon-something and 3:30.

I desperately need to rave about the new book to someone. Did you finish yet?
