Hello all! I had a few weeks where I couldn't do much interetting due to boring reasons and then I went and discovered I'd gotten some sort blogging stage fright. It's all a bit odd. So I'm easing myself back into the swing of things with a picspam because that cures all ills. Going to catch up with replying to comments and posting the stuff I've been making lately over the next few days.

So without further ado, here's some* rather gorgeous people wearing some lovely hats. Enjoy.

*By some I mean 68 pics and gifs. Proceed with caution!

So that "I might make a Michael Fassbender smoking picspam" idea turned into this behemoth attractive people smoking post. I have no idea why I have spent so long on this. I make poor life choices. I blame enabling enablers who enable. And also Michael Fassbender.

I hereby disclaim that smoking is BAD and WRONG, kids, so click no further if this picspam will bother you. And also if you are on a slow connection because there are at least 80 something pics and gifs up in this post.

Stupidly large number of pics under the cut... )

Da-amn.

And now I will leave you with an unfortunately poor quality gif of one of the most romantic moments in cinema history, in my humble opinion. If you find attractive people smoking attractively an aesthetically pleasing experience then you must watch Now, Voyager. Go! Watch it! It's a fabulous film.

Thank you for smoking your time! Feel free to share your own favourite smoking pics/gifs/vids!

I keep trying to write a post about X-Men First Class and I just keep deleting the whole thing and starting again. It's bizarre - part of me wants to write serious meta about STUFF and THOUGHTS, and then part of me just wants to flail around typing incoherent rubbish about my FEELINGS and LUSTS. So instead, here, have a picspam about hats. IDK, it made sense in my head.

Hats. I bloody love hats. I have a lot of hats and I love them all. Everyone should wear more hats. Everyone would wear more hats if I were in charge. And attractive men should definitely wear hats.

Like so:

Lots of pics of Fassbender in hats with guest appearances from other people in hats... )
Despite having spent what feels like most of the week on youtube I still have not watched all of the Fassbender/McAvoy interviews in existence. It's a tragedy. I am slowly working my way through this amazing link post. I will have watched them all eventually. Oh. yes.

So. When a grown adult finds herself running away from her life to go hide at her parents' house for a week then it is time for her to admit she has a problem.

And I can no longer hide behind my belief that things can't be that bad if I'm not moaning about it on the internet when, in fact, I allude to all the stuff that is making me whinge in nearly every post. So full disclosure time - tales of my inability to acknowledge depression in the present tense, my feelings about my home turning on me, and my desire to murder all the builders.

Feel free to skip my tl;dr of woe and angst )


On the upside of life, I saw X-Men First Class and it was every bit as flail-inducing as everyone had said. It gave me FEELINGS. And many thoughts. Some of which I shall post soon (probably when I have seen it again because I so need to see it again). For now I'll just perpetrate a drive by gif dump before I run away to spend the rest of my life watching McAvoy/Fassbender interviews on youtube. Such a chore...

gotta love an insta-fandom... )

Also, Community fen, please help a girl out - where does this pic come from and are there more? Because, WANT.

NSFW if your boss won't approve of girls in lingerie spanking each other )

Also, also, I am giving tumblr another try (as it provided me with most of today's pics!). Tell me who I should be following!

Right, 2011 is officially a bastard. Onto other news...

Don't worry, I have not forgotten about making stuff for Pay It Forward 2011 - [livejournal.com profile] sorrynotsorry and [livejournal.com profile] dahliablueI will be in touch soon, I promise. My etsy shop seems to have a rhythm of nothing-for-ages and then umpty-million-things-at-once and I clearly need to learn better time management skills!

More etsy treasuries here. One of Glasgow based sellers, and one of Firefly/Serenity items.

Which reminds me - has [livejournal.com profile] ontd_startrek stopped doing Make it Sew posts? Cos I haven't seen one in ages and I've made loads of Trekkie things lately which I really feel like showing off.

Meant to make a post of reactions to things I have seen lately, but as per bloody usual I don't really have the time, so here, have the quick versions:

Fast & Furious 5 - Fast cars, check. Inappropriate sexual tension, check. Fantastic stunts, check. Vin Diesel's sexy voice being all growly and sexy, check. Vin Diesel punching people, check. The Rock punching people, check. 'Splosions, check. Heist-y banter, check. Actual physics of the world totally not adhered to, check. So basically, if you like this franchise, this'll be your favourite one. Also, stay for the credits for a "we totally know we're making a sixth one" scene which gave me much happiness.

Thor - Made me giggle like a loon for most of its running time. Unexpected [character's name redacted for spoilers] was unexpected, but also awesome. Hewsworth was fantastic and hella hot. Idris Elba was ridic badass (and also sporting a sexy growly voice. I seem to have a thing.) And again, stay right to the very end of the credits for a little Avengers tease. I am excite.

Doctor Who - Dear Steven Moffat, please stop trying to break my brain. Love, Me.

Community - Baby episode was fabulous, but my dear deities, the "clip show" episode was quite possibly the most glorious thing an American sitcom has ever produced. I though I was actually going to hyperventilate at one point I was laughing so hard.

Having another very weird week.

Today is Day 365 of my tenement building's renovation hell. A renovation hell that was supposed to take six months. They are currently claiming it will be finished in June but I refuse to believe anything they say anymore. I'm trying to stay upbeat about it all but sometimes I just feel like murdering all the builders. Le sigh.

And then the fact that my geeky lamp went halfway around the internet and back was awesome and also a bit strange in that I am now completely insecure about the next craft project, the next blog post, the next whatever, and have retreated from the internet somewhat. Which is a bizarre response to people being really nice. I am messed up in the head.

In lighter news, this may be of interest to any other fans of the Wire and/or Victoriana out there. ETA: That site's servers are clearly having their arses handed to them after so many people have linked to it. Here's a gawker article about it, and my favourite page under the cut.

Mr Moreland and Mr McNulty on the hunt. )

And in even lighter news, kittens make me happy, so, here, have some kittens:

KITTEHS! )
 

And, finally:


Don't forget - bidding ends on the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan  auctions on Thursday the 31st. And, if I do say so myself, both of my offerings are still a total bargain right now! Have a look around - there's loads of amazing stuff on offer. Also, my fellow Inception fen should check out [info]knowmydark's post here because I am far too lazy to compile something similar right now!

This is a post! Pretend I didn't say I was going to do it on Friday! Or pretend it still is Friday! That one might be even better.

My life continues to be weird and stressful, but I'm not helping myself by being disorganised and procrastinating. I seriously need to sort out my time-management skills.

Like, for instance, why did I choose to stay up until nearly 5am last night to watch the Oscars? It wasn't even a particularly good show. Its very strangeness was somewhat entertaining in an awkward way, but I am now regretting watching it live.

Anyway.

Just over a week ago (see - I lack prompt posting skills) I got the chance to see Submarine at the Glasgow Film Festival. It's the directorial debut of The IT Crowd's Richard Ayoade and (spoiler alert!) I really loved it. And I now totally and utterly adore him.

Submarine is probably being described over and over with the words "coming of age story" and "teenage romantic comedy", but I don't think they quite cover its offbeat qualities. It's kind of like a British Napoleon Dynamite as directed by someone from the French New Wave movement. It is very, very funny, and really quite sweet in how it captures the awkwardness of being a teenager. I felt it tread a really nice line in being quirky without becoming annoying, and being hilarious without making me cringe with secondhand embarrassment. And for such a low-budget feature it looked gorgeous.

The teenage leads are played by Craig Roberts (recently seen as Adam in Being Human) and Yasmin Paige (who was Maria on the Sarah Jane Adventures, which took me ages to realise and then promptly made me feel very old), and they both give fantastic performances. We'll be seeing more of them on our screens. Paddy Considine is also fantastic in it, but Paddy Considine is never not fantastic so this is a redundant sentence.

But here's the part where I stop being coherent about the film and just start fan-girling over how much I love Richard Ayoade. He introduced the film and gave a Q&A at the end, and I don't know that I learned much about the making of the film from him, but I did learn that he is the cutest thing I ever did see and I want to keep him in my pocket for ever and ever. He's clearly a bit shy and only doing this sort of stuff to help promote the film, but his coping mechanism seems to be self-deprecating humour and he is a very, very funny man. Even though he barely answered a single question put to him, I think every person left the room slightly in love with him. (I feel this interview he gave earlier the same day best sums up his adorable randomness.)

Look, even the lady from the GFT can't help gazing at him! (More pics here).



In summation, awesome man makes awesome movie. Submarine is released in the UK on the 18th of March and I'd recommend you go see it!

Lots of my favourite shows are back!

I have thoughts on them!

These thoughts are mainly of the flaily variety! And include an overabundance of gifs!

White Collar's back! Spoilers for White Collar 2.10 )

My feelings about Community can (as per usual) be mainly summed up in gif form. Spoilers for Community 2.12 )

And Being Human (the real one) is back too! Hurrah! Spoilers for Being Human 3.01 )
 
And as to all the Batman news - I am unsure of what I think. It's all a tumbly mix of "yay Tom Hardy with lots of muscles" but also "erm, whitewashing again, Nolan?" and a confused blend of "yay an interesting actress playing Selina" with a side dish of "please don't make her a prostitute / full on psychotic / dead / all of the above." It could all turn out bloody brilliantly (despite certain misgivings Nolan films always end up winning me over) or this could be an absolute disaster, so I'm trying to put off thinking about it. At least until the inevitable photos surface of Tom Hardy and Christian Bale play fighting on set. Then I'll just die of fangirl-joy.
