Songs from Westeros - Game of Thrones/ASoIaF Fanmix

It has been pretty much forever since I updated this journal. Hopefully, I'll be able to find time to post a proper entry with updates on all the insanity that's been going on, but for now have a Game of Thrones fanmix in celebration of the season 3 premiere this Sunday!

I wanted to try to make it sound vaguely folk song-ish, choosing songs that could have actually been written by/for the people of Westeros. Basically, the Lannisters have a song; I wanted to give the other houses one, as well. It's not perfect, but it was fun putting together.

The Twilight Zone - in 1 Sentence. Season 1 Pt.1

Since the original series of The Twilight Zone (one of my favorite shows ever) is available on Netflix, I decided it was time I had myself a marathon! :D

For fun, I decided to try my hand at defining each episode in a single sentence.

Season 1 will be continued in Part 2. Hopefully, I'll get through all of the original series.

I May Have Underestimated Just How Quickly Tumblr Moves...

So, you how people say that the quickest way to get positive feedback on Deviantart or Tumblr is to post fanart?

Yeah, that's apparently totally true.

I have my desktop set to The Walt Disney logo, which then shifts to the Hogwarts version and Winterfell version (don't have a link to that one, unfortunately). Anyway, I really liked the way it looked, so I thought "NEEDS MORE DOCTOR WHO!" (What doesn't, after all?)

So I made a TARDIS version!


And then uploaded it to my Tumblr. My inbox ASPLODED. It's gotten 192 notes in less than half an hour. Maybe I'm just really new to Tumblr, but... FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

Anybody have a Tumblr account I can stalk? Sean?

Deathly Hallows Part 2

Wow, I haven't updated in forever, but I guess this is as good a time as any. Went to the midnight showing (of course) of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 last night with Nick, Katelyn, and Brittany and it was ~magical~.

I'll probably be seeing it again when Chase and Nikki go to see it.

I linked Nick to The Shoebox_Project with the suggestion he read it. Heh, we'll see how that goes.

*May or may not have done a little dance around my room*

Seriously, me right now:

I'm a little disturbed about this list, actually

In addition to books, I also documented the films/tv series I watched, noting down only:

a. Films/shows I'd never seen before, or
b. Films I hadn't watched for at least 10 years.
c. Full seasons of shows I watched. Only watching a couple episodes didn't count.

The list is scary long. Blame Netflix Watch Instantly; it has allowed me to fulfill any weird film watching tangent I decide to go off on.

Me: Asian horror marathon?
Netflix: :D
Me: David Lynch marathon?
Netflix: :D
Me: Zombie movies? 1930s German cinema? A Bit of Fry and Laurie?
Netflix: :D :D :D
Me: .........the last four seasons of Doctor Who?
Netflix: :D
Me: Oh, Netflix. ♥

(They have the full series of Torchwood, too... I love you so much, Netflix).

Seriously, I was on such a bender last year to watch as many horror films and foreign films I could find. It was a pretty awesome year, not going to lie.

What is disturbing, though, is that since I only counted things I had never seen before/hadn't seen for ten years/watched the full seasons of, this isn't even near a complete list of everything I watched last year. And that this was in only one year.....

Best Christmas Ever? Y/Y?

Happy Belated Christmas everybody! I hope everybody had a lovely time (from reports, it seems everyone did).

It was a simultaneously low-key, but explosively awesome Christmas this year. Christmas kind of crept up on me (to me, it still feels like it should be October...I don't know, this year just blew by).

My Haul:
- DVDS!: Slumdog Millionaire, Kick-Ass (from Nick), and several of these awesome TCM sets from Target that are ridiculously cheap, but include insanely awesome movies from the 1930s-1960s (the sets I got included, among other films, Casablanca, Singin' in the Rain, several Hammer Horror movies, LOTS of older Hitchcock films, James Dean movies (East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause, etc.), 1930s James Cagney Gangster films, etc. Every single film in these sets is good. A+)
- Since I knit him such a cunning Jayne Cobb hat, my boyfriend made me (yes, I said made) what can best be described as a babushka....sort of... it's more of a scarf/hood. At any rate, it's very comfy and warm and and not at all lopsided like you might be imagining and I've been wearing it all over the place because it is freezing here. It was terribly cute of him to do. Apparently, he tried knitting me something to return the favor, but, according to him, "that shit is hard..." How terribly domestic we are, exchanging home-made gifts (though, we also got each other OTHER things - He got me movies I wanted, I got him the 5th season of Doctor Who on DVD... and crocheted him a little stuffed Dr. Zoidberg from Futurama. Our's is a geeky domesticity.)
- Five new pairs of earrings
- A small Indian-made jewelry box and elephant-shaped piggy bank, which I LOVE and is going to come in handy over the next few days, as I also got...
- A lot of money. Like, an obscene amount from everyone in the family. An obscene enough amount that I was convinced it was sort of conspiracy and was looking at them all, like, ok...what the hell? Which leads me to my grandfather's gift...

-So, this was the year that my granddad bought my cousin Connor his first laptop. He apprently felt the need to compensate with all us grandkids, as he got Ryan some expensive little kid stuff including a motor-powered dirt bike, which, oh dear God, the child is going to break his head open, gave Chase a big chunk of money to put down towards his Land Rover (since Chase is going to start paying for his car on his own soon), and gave me two tickets to...
