I am tickled by the new Sheba cat food advert:




I just don't understand why the woman is getting dressed again. That is a man after my own heart right there, I'd tap that. The cat is welcome to watch. I'm used to that. :D

P.S. For extra hilarity see the youtube comments about how horrible it is to see men being objectified like that in TV. Ahahahaha oh fucking cry me a river.

Did I tell you I went to see Ghostbusters last weekend AND FUCKING LOVED IT. There may be fic. Maybe. If I ever get space to write in between current madness of 'finishing my MA dissertation whilst dealing with gazillion work emails and endless drama'.

However, the Ghostbusters soundtrack has provided me with some suitably kick-ass musical motivation to deal with that. Been rocking out to this a lot:



Also, Elle King? Pwhoar!

I'm emptying my 'to post' list of links and stuff, enjoy!


LOTR reunion. Oh the feels! A couple of more pics in this post.



Speaking of LOTR, here's an awesome fanvid done in the style of Suicide Squad trailer. I love mashups like this and this is fantastic!





Marauders and actors and POI and polyamory oh my! )

Encountered on [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal's LJ and reposted because I know there are people on my flist who will get a kick out of this :D

Two vids for you this evening.

This first one I came across on the flist and it is very, very clever and awesome. Do watch it on full screen via Vimeo to catch all the details. There is though a sad lack of female rock representation. Dear vidder, women rock too!




This second one is a cover of Simon and Garfunkel's The Sound of Silence by Disturbed. It's clearly been out for a few months but I only caught it for the first time today on Planet Rock and was very, very impressed. Enjoy.

Greetings from Manchester. Work conference was very meh overall, though there were some interesting papers and mine went well, but... I've been to other conferences that have been much better and this one I just left feeling tired, rather than inspired and energised as you're supposed to. Well, I did manage to catch up my old PhD supervisors and friend K, so that was great. And now I'm staying for a couple of days of hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] trialia, [livejournal.com profile] moth2fic and [livejournal.com profile] fledge. Which is good.

This downtime has also given me chance to a) empty my work inbox and b) catch up with personal comments and emails. In the process of this I've also been browsing journals and tumblrs, following from one link to another, and collecting shiny things and links.

Here, have so awesomeness )

Thanks [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal for posting! This had to be shared :D Please do not drink, eat or operate heavy machinery whilst watching this epic of Sherlock, Dracula and Fan Friction... I laughed so much that I may have peed myself a little.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] verdande_mi for linking this! I haven't laughed as much for a while. Like [livejournal.com profile] verdande_mi, I'm not sure how funny this is for non-Nordics but to me it was hilarious! A short stand-up clip about Nordic communication, 90% in English - do check it out! :D:D:D The bit about Finnish mosquitos at the end made me laugh until I cried!

Oh fandom of my heart. My One True Fandom. The first love, the one that started it all... This is a bit like seeing your ex and knowing that you WILL fall back into bed with them, but not being at all sure yet if it will be brilliant, bittersweet, disappointing or a massive mistake...

Finnish flist*, you are all FIRED for not telling me about Vain Elämää series. FIRED I SAY.

Because now I'm totally addicted and I cannot watch the full shows in UK because of stupid regional restrictions and only fraction of the videos is on Youtube. And essentially I need more of people's adorable faces being overcome by emotion when other people sing their songs. RIGHT IN THE FEELS. Whoever knew that Toni Virtanen's face even crumbled like that oh my god.

*sulks and repeat watches youtube vids*

*For the rest of you, this is a series where well known artists perform each other's songs, providing a new interpretation, arrangement etc and it inevitably results in tears all around from various FEELS. It is brilliant. I mean who doesn't like to see people cry because of creative awesomeness?

Have some videos, all in Finnish obvs )

Strictly clip 1: The Bootylicious Edition

There is nothing here I don't enjoy. Carry on with the sonic-boom hips and femdom, Alison. Carry right on.




Strictly clip 2: The Imaginary Incest Edition

So Pixie and Trent honestly don't do a thing for me, they both just seem very bland. Until...

My reaction to tonight's rumba, straight from chat window with [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666

[livejournal.com profile] kat_lair: this is so awkward cos they look like brother and sister and i'm all FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC OMG MY EYESSSSSS
[livejournal.com profile] kat_lair: ...on second thought, actually imagining that makes this like 100% more erotic
[livejournal.com profile] kat_lair: i blame fandom



New head-canon. I'm not even sorry. It's the only way I can muster any fucks about this couple. TRAGIC HETCEST. You know, like Simon/River, only blonder.

From yesterday's SCD. Sadly I cannot find the pre-dance clip anywhere because there were some delicious moments of Aljaž scurrying around submissively. And yes, I know it's for the show, but it doesn't make it any less awesome :D

I'm loving the song and I'm loving Patrick's continued rock godDOM groove (guh) but... OH PETE, NOOOOOOOOOO, YOUR HAIRRRRRRR. Unlike GeeWay, he cannot pull that off AT ALL.

I have many, MANY notes re my MA assignments. I do not yet have any finished MA assignments. This is the equivalent of having painstakingly turned all the jigsaw puzzle pieces the right way around and collated them on the table so that I can now start putting it together. Except for how there probably are some pieces still missing but I don't know that until get to that part of the puzzle.

And in kink-related things, these are the three messages I've received lately, in summary and translated.
1. Hello, are you still looking for a sub because I'm interested. = I'm polite and pretty cute, TOO BAD I LIVE IN OHIO, AHAHAHA.
2. Hello, nothing will ever happen in real life, but I'd like to talk about some scenarios with you. = I'm married, my wife doesn't know, and I would like you to provide me some wank material.
3. Hello, YOU ARE A GODDESS-ON-EARTH, LET ME WORSHIP THE GROUND YOU WALK ON. = I'm afraid of real women, with real faults and feelings and all that messy stuff so I prefer the fantasy, thx.

Sigh. Beyond the Valley of the Femdoms has helped. A lot.

Anyway, I promised some vids. These are all gathered via flist over the last couple of weeks.

Am I a good man? Doctor Who Official Trailer )


Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Lego Tribute )


Got To Dance is back... With Adam! )


Swedish Marines + Greased Lightning )


Word Crimes )


British villains always drive Jaguars. Advertising done right. Tom Hiddleston quotes Richard II. I don't even care about cars. Gah. )

I have marked 15 essays today. I want to cry. The two are causally correlated.

In other news, I have finally bought a new laptop. And by that I mean, the same laptop I have now except the newer version. It should be here soon. Yes, it was emotionally painful.

However, I am now lusting after a tablet. It must be 10inch because I need to use it for work stuff but otherwise I'm open for recommendations. Oh, and I'd ideally not use more than ~£300 on it.

I continue to be in love with Lewis fandom! Back in February I left a prompt about Hathaway going on a series of bad dates and then, two months later, two separate but equally awesome fics about that appeared as a complete surprise. Both are excellent stories with great characterisation and oodles of romance and jealousy and pining and oh my heart! Run, don't walk, to read: Not Quite According To Plan by [livejournal.com profile] fortesomniare and The Unfortunate State of My Dates by [livejournal.com profile] wendymr and [livejournal.com profile] paperscribe. <3

Here are a couple of things gathered via flist that I wanted to share:

  • This Is My Body - a video with some important messages, most universal, although some with US-centric slant as that's where the vid originates from (triggery for sexual harassment/offending and health issues). Because for those of us on the Northern Hemisphere, how many magazine articles and comments have you already seen/received about getting your body 'swimsuit ready'? And really, that's just the tip of the iceberg as you all know.




***

And because I wanted to leave you with something light-hearted and silly after that...



***

Right, as you were. I'm going to go get some food now and watch 2h of American sit-coms.
