Personal stuff is mostly flocked;
fandom stuff, picspams and fic will all be open.

Come and say hello!

Robin Hood 3.07: Too Hot To Handle )

I've been devouring Naomi Novik's Temeraire series (I am very nearly finished with Victory of Eagles; expect a massively incoherently joyful post) and tinkering about over at [community profile] age_of_sail, and the whole giddy experience culminated in a BURNING DESIRE to submerge myself in Master & Commander. I haven't seen the film for a few years, and I've only read the first book in the series, but I remember loving them both rather a lot. JACK AND STEPHEN, THEY ARE MORE MARRIED THAN ANYONE EVER. And the DVD was on offer in HMV! My planets are aligned and all that jazz. We watched it last night and it was just as fantastic as I remembered, with the added bonus that being a few years older makes Max "grows up to be Octavian!" Pirkis EVEN MORE ADORABLE as Blakeney. It defies the intellect, how adorable this boy is. Look at his little faaaace! Also, yay Bryan Dick!

How are you? ♥

Hello my lovelies! Two things, for purposes of Big Bang:

1. What are you favourite examples of female artists covering songs by male artists?
2. What are your favourite WOMEN ARE BADASS songs?

Cheers me dears! ♥
sophieisgod: ([dw] with voyeuristic intention)
Stolen from lovestories/[personal profile] echoes, because HOMG I hoard fanvids like a dragon hoards shiny things. IT IS RIDICULOUS.

Pick your five ten fifteen all-time favourite fanvids, the ones which made you laugh or cry or kicked you in the guts, that inspired you to offer the vidder internets and first born sons, and tell us why you loved them. Any fandom, any pairing, any genre - the only requirement is they stood out from the crowd. Also, links or it didn't happen.
Click for a disgusting amount of rambling! )

I finally got around to watching Howl's Moving Castle and I am deliriously in love with pretty much everything about it. Gorgeous animation aside, the sheer inventiveness and detail of the world had me grinning uncontrollably throughout, and the characters were delightful. HOWWWWL, and his slime-producing self-loathing emo vanity, I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!

ANYWAY. The point is, there was a main character with my name, which hardly ever happens, and therefore is worthy of commemoration. In list format, no less! So:

AWESOME CHARACTERS WHO SHARE MY NAME
+ Sophie, Howl's Moving Castle
+ Sophie, Love Me If You Dare/Jeux d'Enfants
+ Sophie, The BFG, Roald Dahl
+ Sophie Dempsey, Welcome to Temptation Jennifer Crusie (SHUT UP, CRUSIE IS DELIGHTFUL, and also the sex is fantastic. You don't know my life!)
+ Sophie Amundsen, Sophie's World, Jostein Gaarder

Your turn! If you are a special snowflake with a rare name or whatever then I will expect detailed character analysis in lieu of volume. Or something.

How are you? ♥

Hello, Dreamwidth people! This is all very lovely and shiny, isn't it?

This post is mainly aimed at [livejournal.com profile] moogle62 and [livejournal.com profile] _faeriequeen, primarily because they're the only people that I know have read Mark Gatiss' Lucifer Box novels, but if anyone else has, DO FEEL FREE to flail in the comments, because OH MY CRIKEY IT IS SO WONDERFUL.

In other news, I'm totally seeing Jamie Parker in As You Like It and MY ALL-TIME NUMBER ONE FOREVER GIRL CRUSH REBECCA HALL in The Winter's Tale. I love my student loan.

How are you? ♥

I have a question, trusty flisters, and it is this:

What blogs do you regularly check? I'm looking for recs on all topics; politics, entertainment, culture, comics, whatever. What do you like?
sophieisgod: ([sexy] olivia "goddess" williams)
So you know how I have all this borderline-obsessive adoration for the Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow? MULTIPY THAT BY ROUGHLY A BILLION, because I'm reading his autobiography. OH MY DAYYYYS. He went to uni in Liverpool and got kicked out for staging a sit-in! He did his VSO bit in Uganda! He met the Pope! I'm going to have such an epic reading list after I'm finished with this, because I know SO EFFING LITTLE about all the conflicts he mentions. IGNORANT SOPHIE IS IGNORANT. But yes! LOVE THAT MAN. Also he was friends with Decca, my favourite Mitford, so.

Bookwise, I'm also massively enjoying Summerland by Michael Chabon. I love Chabon anyway (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay is in my Top 10, no question), but this book! It makes me want to have kids JUST SO I WOULD BE ABLE TO READ IT TO THEM. There's a werefox! I JUST LOVE BOOKS AN AWFUL LOT. I also enjoy cheap thrills, so I'm devouring all the Jennifer Crusie I can get my hands on. You guys, I'm going to be so sad when my degree is over and I won't legitimately be able to fill my days with delightful romantic fiction and eat chocolate in the bath!

Not much to say about Robin Hood, other than that, once again, I rather liked it! Tuck continues to AWESOME about all over the place; Allan got lots of lines (nose!) and was delightful; Much continues to break my heart; Edmund was, randomly, Charlie from Spooks: Code 9! I wanted him to stayyyy - The Gang needs a pretty young thing now we are sadly sans Will.

GIP! Ohh, Olivia "Goddess" Williams, you are so very lovely.

How are you? ♥

Flying post, the sole purpose of which is to REC THE SHIT OUT OF The Last Time We Ever Met, a Tess of the D'Urbervilles fanvid by [livejournal.com profile] iconzicons. TO "IN THE AIR TONIGHT" BY PHIL COLLINS. YEAH. It's fucking awesome.
sophieisgod: ([rh] crotchfire!)
Robin Hood 3.03: Lost in Translation )

Also, the universe clearly loves me and wants me to be happy, because the-channel-formerly-known-as-UKTV History (now Yesterday!) showed alllll of the 2006 Jane Eyre this afternoon! SEX ON MY TELLYBOX AND ALL OVER MY PANTS. Ohhh, I have missed that miniseries. TOBY! RUTH! RUPERT THE BEAR-INSPIRED RIDING GET-UPS! THROATPORN! SLANNEN THE ELF! TOBY! RUTH! KISSING IN THE RAIN! HAIR EXTENSIONS! BOOTPORN! TOBY! RUTH!

Phnar.

Skins 3.10: Finale )

And on that note, VID REC! [livejournal.com profile] lovestories has worked her magic again, and gone digging around the crazy messed-up head of Effy. Colorblind. IT IS A THING OF GREAT BEAUTY; all intimacy and distance and sexy young things.

While we're on the subject of vidding, the Return of Hood last night had me craving some fandom circa late 2007, so I tracked down, among other things, [livejournal.com profile] yorkshirewench's stuff. SPECIFICALLY, BOYFRIENDS 2.0. Ohhh, Allan/Will, I miss you so! iMeem is being ridiculously difficult today, so who knows if you'll be able to see this, but: How to be Dead. And, BECAUSE I CAN, I'm embedding the gorgeous, gorgeous vid that encapsulates the best parts of the episode that made me fall utterly in love with this ridiculous show.


robin_requiem - yorkshirewench

And look! Sam Troughton continues to be roughly seventeen thousand kinds of adorable!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] frak_spoilers is shutting down. WOE. Go and revel in the BSG-shaped crack ♥

Also also, Skins fans, TAKE A GOOD HARD LOOK AT THE MOTHERFUCKING BOAT.

How are you? ♥
sophieisgod: ([merlin] royal escort)
Well, then )
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS, MY LOVELIES?

Also, because I have been playing it with the divine [livejournal.com profile] darkangsty42, SHAG, MARRY, PUSH OFF A CLIFF! Give me three characters in the comments, and I'll do the same, AND THE FUN WILL NEVER EVER END.

How are you? ♥

DUDE. 500 feels like a significant number, one that deserves something more important than the dross I'm about to spew out all over you. OH WELL.

Ohh, flist, I love you so! From the glorious [livejournal.com profile] templa_otmena, my housemate, wifey, partner in crime and procrastination, who whispered in my ear of these things called 'userpics' and pointed me in the direction of [livejournal.com profile] bbccostumedrama, to everyone who took pity on me in the early days when I had no clue what I was doing (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, O MERCIFUL ONES), and everyone else right through to today. Thank you for the flail, and the honesty, and the crazy excessive fandom love. ♥ OH YOU KIDS. GROUP HUGS ALL ROUND.

ANYWAY. My [livejournal.com profile] inrevelations gift for [livejournal.com profile] anythingbutgrey is up: nothing proved can be (in which there are windows, and Elizabeth I is fierce)

Also, BAFTA nominations are out! Yay for Ben Whishaw, The Devil's Whore, Outnumbered, Mad Men, Einstein and Eddington, THE OLYMPICS OMG, and other good tellystuffs.

Also also, because I forgot to mention it before and it amused me, I somehow came, like, fifth, in the March Madness Fandom Office Pool? RIGHTEOUS.

How are you? ♥
