so about two years after first hearing about it, I finally managed to find a copy of The Fall.

lets just say it was nigh impossible to find it here in NZ legally. 

anywho.....

AMAZINGLY BREATHTAKING.

it was worth the wait.

Its story was so simplistic and honest, yet epic on its scale. Such a beautiful fairytale.

I'm off to go gush in as many places as I can. 

ETA: and this is the video that got me searching for it, here and the trailer for the film here.

 

here lie my murmurs of worry

I've read a few general reactions to this latest episode and everyone seemed to like it.

I was bored...indifferent almost.

And that just breaks my heart.

don't close your eyes, don't turn away and don't blink.Collapse )

5.17

After several hours of deliberation I have come to the conclusion that Kripke feels guilty for not bring JDM back so is giving us as many other folks from past seasons as humanly possible, even if they are completely left field and random and don't really fit within the story.

While 5.16 left me rather stressed in a good way this episode left me rather....meh. I suppose too much oh boys-ing just leaves you numb.

And...yeah...I think that is all I am going to say in relation to the matter.

A/N: I betcha we'll have a few dozen of these over the next few days. Actually, this episode gave an abundance of coda/tag opportunities. This one magically sprang into my mind and I apologise to No Rhyme for temporarily ditching it for a few hours, but don't worry, it's nearly finished. Title inspired by the Pearl Jam song. Unbeta so hope its okay, xoxo

And in relation to 'No Rhyme' I feel very pleased content happy satisfied that, although it has naturally deterred drastically from canon, it is still seemingly running down the same path. It's not a good 'happily ever after' path, mind you, but its a path nonetheless.

wow, 750 words is my new best friend.

seriously if you have difficulty writing, hell, for any writer, this site is amazing.

it wants you to write 750 words a day. there are no font sizes or funky alignment buttons, just a cursor. it sounds simple and stupid, but, I dunno, it just magically worked for me.

I wrote 1,999 words in 3 hours.

now that is big for me. i don't like writing. i love that feeling of a end result but i don't like writing. i antagonise over every word, i backspace and reread and edit and change and i have only once, in my 5 or so years of writing, finished a story more than 5,000 words. i can't. 1,999 words would usually take me 2 days of deleting paragraphs and umming and ahhhing and playing with paragraph spacing.

at 750 words today i just wrote. and it was glorious.

if the simple joy of writing doesn't do it for you by itself it also has all these really cool stats about your writing.

apparently today i was feeling self expressive and upset while concerned about death, religion and family. my writing was past tense, focusing on hearing and touch and with a rating of PG because of a little bit of swearing and violence. oh, and the weather while i wrote was 13 degrees celcius.

wicked.

there is no better feeling

one_letter
There is no better feeling in the world than listening to the most powerful person in this country's TV industry (who also just so happens to be a woman) talk about how crucial writing is in this country. How desperate the industry is for writers, how every single person who wants to be part of this industry needs to up the ante when it comes to writing.

And, of course, what is my key area of focus?!?!

She created the leading TV production company in this country, Touchdown Pictures and she is now the CEO for the Australasian sector of Eyeworks, the fifth biggest TV production company in the world. She has a net worth of $35 million, an Aston Martin, a resort in Fiji, two cable channels and two teenagers.

She also has three internships available directly under her for when my class finish this course in two years and she smiled at me when she saw me in the front row, furiously writing notes.

I want this, dear God, I want this.

oh, life, you are good to me.

 I first created this LJ during a time in my life when I was increasingly bored and frustrated so I came here to talk about things that basically didn't suck quite so much. By posting here about the small good things in life, TV shows, uni prospects etc, they seemed more affluent in my life than the boring, mundane stuff I had to drag myself through (namely the last six months of high school and a tedious four month summer break).

But finally I am here and loving it and now posting on LJ doesn't seem quite as crucial to my weekly existence as it once did. Which is good because most people really do need a life outside the internet, but its also bad because, however much people who don't do this sort of thing scoff, I enjoy this.

I don't make friends easy. I let them come to me, instead of actively putting myself out there, which is a flaw I continuously try and fail to break, but in fandom, in LJ, in my favorite forums, I can lurk and post occasionally and feel part of something, feel like I belong. And judge that all you like RL people, but it makes me happy, and that's all there is to it.

Still, now here I am at the NZ Broadcasting School and I talk of TV and my passion and my writing and people - although they may not be in the same boat exactly - appreciate my love and accept it as everybody here has similar passions. In our group of 22 we have someone who wants to be a voice over artist for cartoons, someone who wants to be a doco director, the guy behind the camera on Getaway, an indie director, an actor/director/producer/writer, an editor, a visionmixer, a bigwig exec, the list goes on, those are just the film and tv students (there are also 20 radio and 20 journalism students). We are all here at this rather elite school cause we have enough passion for these things in this industry to go after them 110%. 

We will all come out of this with a Bachelor of Broadcasting Communications and go on to do what we are passionate about for a living, being the best in our respective fields here in NZ and among some of the best in the world. I knew this place was a big deal but I was shocked to discover that two of my new fellows came from CANADA in order to work this particular course. That's just amazing and says a lot.

Right now, with those future prospects ahead of us and our talent and drive behind us, this whole damn experience can't help but be amazing.

I can't believe I'm here.

Wow, and this post wasn't even going to be about RL.

And I still haven't really touched upon this new, fantastic city and my new, fantastic flatmates.

Or fandom. Poor fandom, I'm betting it feels neglected. ***pats head***

Also, finally, can I just say that, damn, after rereading this, I've realised it is just too damn chipper for its own good. I give it three weeks before my world comes crashing around my ankles. And don't that show what a sad state the world is when you deem your honest, unabashed happiness to be too good to be true. How very cynical and sad.

Well that sobered me up. Sigh.

Christchurch meet Haven

one_letter

So I'm finally here. Sitting in my flat watching Bones (with Amy Gumenick aka Young Mary!!!!) while some of my flatmates make something that smells revolting, rather loudly in the kitchen.

I now know High Street like the back of my hand, having walked up it about 10 times in the last 48 hours, I'm living literally right at the top of it, about a five minute walk from Cathedral Square. I've been out to the humongous Riccarton Mall and have fallen it love with the most amazing video store I have ever seen which is randomly and awesomely now my locale. They gave me a playing card as a membership card, a playing card. Heh.

There's really so much to say that there's nothing to say. Christchurch is just totally my kind of city, every second store is eyepoppingly fascinating.

I only just got online since Thursday and caught up with Psych, Leverage, Vamp Diaries and Supernatural. SPN surprised me, I wasn't expecting anything at all but that was actually a really nice, solid little episode. Leverage had Mark Sheppard popping up again right at the end which was pretty epic, Psych just seems to keep getting better and Vampire Diaries is flawless for what it is, a fantasy teen drama, addictive, unfortunately. 

Until next time, TTFN.

Dude, first time LJ has worked properly for me since Friday, stupid friggin' thing!

I move to Christchurch in three and a half days, wow, time has gone fast. My life now consists of six boxes, is that sad? How sad is that? Should one's life consist of more than six boxes or is six rather mandatory? Still, glancing around my room now, bare walls and shelves and cupboards, six seems rather pitiful.

Am taking a workplace first aid course tomorrow and Wednesday, which I will probably fail at. Wait, can you actually fail those sorts of things? Is there like a test? Two days and two hundred bucks later and can they look at you and go.....FAILLLLLL you sucka, try again! MWAHAHAHAH!!!!

Oh dear, now I am rather more anxious than before.

eek, busy TV season

one_letter

I was going over what I watch and, dude, unhealthy much?!?!

To be fair, its never more than this, more often than not its only about two, maybe three shows per week. But at the mo here's how a normal Feb week is looking.

Sunday: Bones, Doc Martin
Monday: Being Human, Chuck, The Listener
Tuesday: Life UneXpected, HIMYM, Castle, House 
Wednesday: White Collar
Thursday: Leverage, Psych, Criminal Minds
Friday: Supernatural, Vampire Diaries

Bones, Doc Martin, The Listener, House and Criminal Minds I watch on actual, physical TV, the rest are on the 'net.

Crap, now I feel guilty. But to be honest, I'm one of those nuts who also watches it when it finally does air in NZ and then buys everything on DVD anyway, so I am contributing, and, hey, this isn't just mindless tube watching, no, this is research 'cause somebody is starting a Bachelor in Film and TV Post Production in two weeks! SQUEEEEEE!

I suppose all I can say is thank goodness Glee and Doctor Who aren't airing at the mo, 'cause then this whole thing would just get ridiculous!

You've been missing the point lately, please don't let it become a reoccurrence.

I luv you but you made me cry tonight in a not awesomely angsty way but a desperately sad suckily suckful way.

Which is bad :(

Please, please, please, character development should move forward, not backwards.

me and the internets are going to have words in a minute. I'm trying to do something vaguely important (upload a vid to the 'tube, yes, I made a vid!) but the internet keeps cutting in and out and each time I have to start again.

It hates me today. Which is not good, today of all days 'cause there's new SPN today and fuck if I'm gonna spend 10 hours restarting the download, watching a bit, having it die, trying different torrents, trying different sites, always getting to a really suspensful bit......only for the internets to keep dying on me.

 I asked my sis to write an epic plot outline for a story while I was in the shower. I asked her for something, anything, anything at all. This is what she came up with:

SAMMY THE SINGER.
Black hair, emo chick into Emily the Strange, Astro Boy and crossword puzzles.

VINNY THE VAMPIRE (cause your story has to have a vampire to get anywhere these days)
Fiery red hair, bluely purple eyes, likes fishing, gymnastics and BLOOOD!!!!!

THEY ENTER AMERICAN IDOL AND ELLEN DEGENERES FALLS MADLY IN LOVE WITH SAMMY. SCANDAL BREAKS LOOSE, BIG UGLY DIVORCE FROM PORTIA BUT VINNY WANTS SAMMY SO HE BRUTALLY KILLS ELLEN THEN WINS AMERICAN IDOL.

THE END.
