just much less - touchy-feely
they mainly happen somewhere warm and sunnyyyyyyyy!
  1. I watched Tangled again today, this time with [livejournal.com profile] snoorella and [livejournal.com profile] imprinted_soul, and for free (!!!). A few more thoughts behind the cut, just because I am a sappy, Disney-lovin' fool. sometimes i can't choose between italics and the caps lock key )

  2. As a side-note, crunching on popcorn is annoying but easy to tolerate, and people checking their cell phones for texts is okay (although no calling, ugh, what is wrong with you), but I draw the line at the food. I want to kill the person who thought it was a great idea to allow cinema food to include things like hot dogs and nachos and pasta and whatever else, because it is wrong that a cinema smells like anything beyond popcorn, and it actually gets disgusting to know people are eating full meals sitting a few seats down from you when everyone else is trying to enjoy a movie. And as a vegetarian I'm fine with smelling meat, I'm completely used to it, but it's unbelievably worse in an air-conditioned area like that, and when all I'm doing is watching a movie. I'm sorry for the rant, but REALLY. REALLY, CINEMA-GOERS?

  3. I don't have too much to say about Merlin, but the setting-up of the Round Table of Badassery was well-done, I think, because it felt both epic/awesome and also like all characters there were people who deserved to be there, which is nice, and it's more than I'm used to from this show. Also, knowing Katie McGrath has forced to smirk this often has made me like her more, feel better about watching her, and get really annoyed with the direction on this show.

    And finally, I am having a serious Colin Morgan Problem, but I don't know what to do with myself every time I see something of him that makes me flail on Tumblr, and I do think that most of my tags are written when I'm not paying attention to my brain. I love him (and Merlin Emrys, the bravest of them all!!!1) very much.

  4. Cougar Town is wonderful (Jules and Bobby being to laugh together over the boat made me smile and smile), Castle is warm and comfortable and delightful (I always love when Castle gets particularly enthusiastic about something), and Phil Dunphy chasing after the salesman with cologne is probably the greatest thing I've seen this week (but then again, Phil Dunphy is one of the greatest things ever in general, so thank you, Modern Family).

  1. Exams are overrrr! They ended over a day ago and I can’t even tell you what I’ve done since then, because I have done nothing. I had so much to watch and now I realise I’ve had too much to watch - I can’t choose where to start, and I’m also getting a little anxious thinking about how much I may end up being disappointed. Boo, self! Boo! I’ll probably end up reading instead.

  2. Today I checked out my Google Docs space for the first time in two months and hey, I have unfinished fic I’m semi-proud of! I guess that means I’ll be writing more soon.

  3. I’ve finally watched Deathly Hallows and I loved it, hooray. I’ve never had a problem with the movies the way a lot of people do, even when I recognise that the problems being brought up are legitimate and reasonable, so it wasn’t surprising that I enjoyed HP7, but you know.

    I could talk a lot about it, probably, but I’m sleepy and lazy and remember too little, so here are three things about the parts people seem to be talking less about?:HP7 )

    Finally, if you don’t start choking up when watching this video, you may not be a HP fan, or you may not have a heart.

  4. I may watch Tangled next week. I didn’t find any of the music on the OST that interesting, and the script feels a little bit unimpressive, but Zach Levi is wonderfully expressive and the way some of the shots in the trailer have been shot is just gorgeous. Also: Disney movie! (I am approaching the movie with caution regarding the way Rapunzel is written for/used in the story, but I have seen no complaints for it so far.)

  5. I know a lot of people have their reservations (and with good reason - she does seem to young) about Carey Mulligan being cast for Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby, but I'm kind of excited. That photo that's going around of her from her audition alone has her giving just the right amount of completely crazy, and I can't wait to see her show off her range. And anyway, I feel like if anything, people should be worrying about Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway. (No. No.)

  6. I don’t know if I’ve informed all of you of this, but Phil Dunphy is wonderful and one of my favourite characters on TV right now, and if he were younger (and real) I would probably marry him. I know I’ve talked about how much I love what Ty Burrell did with the potentially two-dimensional character, but I really adore everything about him at this point.

  7. HEY GUYS YOU KNOW HOW PARKS AND RECREATION IS BACK IN JANUARY? I AM DANCING IN MY SEAT JUST THINKING ABOUT IT, LALALALALA. I’ve also ordered the DVDs, only I don’t know when I’ll be getting them. I want them so much.
I almost definitely had more to say. I seem to have forgotten.

  1. OK, Community is brilliant, but this week's episode reminded me that sometimes this show gets a little too caught up with that brilliance and fails to let me connect with it in any other way.

    community thoughts and unnecessary feelings )

  2. 30 Rock, on the other hand, proved that it can get sweeter storylines pretty well when it wants to. 30 rock love )

  3. This week's The Office was weird because I should dislike it - it's absurd, unbelievable, and therefore mostly unlike the subtle, softer, sweeter nature of the humour that I loved this show for - but it's also ridiculously funny. the office, quickly )

  4. Modern Family this week probably had one of its funniest episodes. Loved it! modern family, quickly )

  5. Oh, Cougar Town, you are delightful and funny and also kind of heartbreaking. Thank you. cougar town, quickly )

  6. Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert's Everybody's Talking 'Bout Sully is both hilarious and ridiculously catchy. I love them a lot.

  7. I feel like I had non-TV things to talk about, but they're mostly along the lines of "studying a lot. am bored and tired and annoyed."

  8. I totally watched Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing in YouTube clips for around an hour this afternoon - so talented, so classy (and god, the moves she pulls off in heels?!). I love black and white movies because their beauty and enjoyability is almost completely reliant on their stars' talents and charms. It's simple, unpretentious, and gorgeous.

    Also, I find Cheek to Cheek intensely romantic (and that's not a word I like to use) - the way the notes climb at and my heart beats so that i can hardly speak, oh my heart. I can't be the only one who gets a little heartclutchy at these things, right?
This entry is so chatty, but I just feel like blabbering on a little bit. Sorry?

It's kind of been a terrible week. TV was consistently good, though. Let me talk you all through that instead!
  1. how i met your mother )

  2. Castle was sweet, as always; loved the Castle-Martha scenes, and how casually he told Kate his full real name. That kind of ease and understatement in all the relationships is what I love this show for.

  3. Chuck was great. Chuck/Sarah are really hot together, by the way. Also, Parenthood is hit or miss for me, but this week's episode was awesome.

  4. modern family )

  5. Cougar Town was sweet and sad and hilarious, and I love this show so much, you guys. One day I'll make a list of my favourite comedies currently on television, and this would probably be in the top five (only I have no idea how to talk about how much I love it).

  6. the office )

  7. community )

  8. 30 rock (!!!) )

  9. fringe )
This was the absolute best way to spend an hour. Woo! I'm done.

ETA: The winner at the German Oktoberfest's pop&lock competition "gets to annex Poland". I LOVE YOU, COMMUNITY! (/history)

This post can also be captioned "AMY AMY AMY AMY AMY AMY!!!!"

more under the cut )

In summary and in conclusion: AMY AMY AMY AMY AMY AMY!! (You guys don't realise how much this post would've degenerated to angry capslock if Amy P didn't get this.) I also wish Glee could become a person so I could punch it in the face.

P.S.: Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report together was wonderful. Their Even Stevphen made me laugh so hard my stomach hurt a little. Since Steve will have a lot of free time once he leaves The Office, I would like to propose that Even Stevphen is made a regular event, ending with a ten-second appearance from Jon Stewart. I feel like this would be a very good idea.

a quick ramble about my love for Leslie Knope )

-

Other TV shows -

  1. 'psych' - love and a rant )

  2. Parenthood is still kind of nice and way better than Life Unexpected, for me. I haven't watched Glmore Girls other than a lot of the more famous clips on YouTube and the pilot, but I have a lot of love for Lauren Graham and how she's playing things right now. The whole family's so interesting, though, which is great! I love the big group scenes.

  3. Chuck was fantastic, though with a fair share of clunky bits. quick details )

  4. castle )

  5. how i met your mother )

  6. the office )

  7. parks and recreation )

  8. community )

  9. modern family )
I think it's been such a great year for comedy in general that I'm excited about Emmy noms this year - I may be too optimistic about this, but I think there'll be new shows and actors in the running, mixing things up, and I hope so much that it happens. If Amy Poehler isn't nominated for Parks this year, I will lose it. Just like Danny Pudi as Abed in Community, because as much as I think everyone in the show is well-cast and spectacular, Abed is special.

I think I got it all.

I've just started Sports Night and I finished all of the first season within the last day. more on the first sorkin project )

As you can see, I'm pretty much having a mess of feelings about SN, because I am enjoying it a lot and am interested enough to keep watching it, back to back to back to back to back, but there are things about it that are annoying me. The overwhelming feeling here is to stop SN and take out TWW again and watch the first two seasons straight through, but I'm probably not going to do that. I'm probably going to finish SN now. And then I'm probably going to watch Black Books, because I have one week to do whatever I want without feeling guilty about it, and that's the most freedom I'm going to have for the next eight months. So.

I'm sorry this entry is so full of TV rubbish. This is my first day of eight days that I have off, and I'm going to spend it wasting my time a little bit, because it's basically the only time I can do this for the next eight months or so.

ETA: Maybe I'll watch Firefly now instead. I feel like watching amazing writing right now.

ETA again: JOE/DEMI ARE OFFICIALLY DATING?!! KJASLDAJDKASJDALS I HAVE BEEN AKLSJDKALSJDAKSJDAING ABOUT THIS SINCE I FOUND OUT!! ASKLDJA!!! SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS i'll stop now i'm done aksdajksdlasd.
