Has anyone watched Crashing? It's a British comedy - 6 eps, and looks fun. It has a mix of good and bad reviews (mostly excellent ones on IMDb, I have to say), but I followed the Sam/Fred storyline on You Tube and I'm hooked! I hope they make more, and that it's as good!

Here's the trailer, for those who want to know more:



It's written by the woman who plays Lulu (long dark hair in video), and the premise is about a bunch of 20/30-somethings who are 'guardians' of a building to be demolished (a hospital in London) so they live in it for cheap until demo time, and they're all crashing into something as well as 'crashing' at the hospital.

Sam is very cute (the guy who played reporter Olly in Broadchurch shows off his comedy chops!!!), and his struggle with his feelings for his friend Fred are very amusing, as are all the happenings (even the slightly icky things) with the others. And you can follow the Sam/Fred story from here in six parts at YT, should that be enough for you. ;-)

I've been working hard all month on getting the pics up at the August Rush Challenge at [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words, so I haven't been writing as much as I often do, but I managed five banners for the first two weeks of the challenge, and decided that I'd do another five that spoke to me for the second two weeks as well.

My first five (one for each fandom) are here if you want to see them and missed them earlier.

The second five - again, one for each fandom )

yesterday, I wasn't feeling the words, but I had time to play around with some graphics, so these are what I came up with from the pics I'd chosen over the last couple of weeks at [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words August Rush challenge.

Here be five banners - I've chosen one pic for each fandom from random days; just whatever appealed to me as something I could caption )

I don't usually comment much about the show, but...

I watched 3.22 last night and I have just had a quick look for people's reactions. The one thing that so far I haven't seen anybody mention is the coincidence of this ep airing the week that those girls were found in Cleveland. It's been all over our news, and we're not even American. Do people in America know about it outside of Cleveland or is everyone just not willing to mention life imitating art (to some degree, since yes, things went differently on H50, which I won't go into to so not to spoil anything)?

I was blown away by the coincidence, down to the girl they found being called Amanda. And I will say, I thought it was an excellent episode; some great work by the actors. Yes, there were unrealistic things, but hey, this is entertainment and all TV shows are full of those moments. I don't expect it to be exactly like RL and won't fool myself into thinking it should be.

BUT, OMG, TINSTAC, [livejournal.com profile] msb66! Seriously!

Fly by!

YES! I am still alive. I have things and stuff going on, and to say. I still haven't caught up on flist and I feel bad about that. I watched Jacob & Paul SPOILER ) on The Following last night SPOILER )

I will try to get back in the next day or two and catch up/post/do something! *hugs to everyone* What have you all been up to that I've missed? Link or explain; I'm all ears!

Two things I'm enjoying a lot this season so far:

1. Revenge. It never stops being fun. Although if Nolan and that girl are getting together, I need a drink. God, I love that boy. I need my own icon with something clever he says on it. Not sure what yet, but I need to work on it, or ask one of you way better icon makers than me to find something PERFECT and make something pretty. Plus, so much pretty on that show. Jack ( there's always a Jack, have you noticed?), Nolan, Daniel, Declan's kinda cute in a 17 yo kinda way, and now Aiden. Oh yes. Much, much pretty. Now, Anyone got any some slash recs with Nolan and any one of the other lads, please?

2. The Following. This is SERIOUSLY creepy TV, everyone. If you like your shows dark and weirdly compelling, this is the one for me this season so far. I loved American Horror Story last year (S1 only so far, S2 to come), but THIS. OH yes. Kevin Bacon is always good, but James Purefoy is deliciously evil. And there are two guys pretending to be gay (OR ARE THEY? Maybe not both of them...) on the side. Someone posted a link of Kevin Bacon & James Purefoy kissing at some press conference too - forget who, cos that's me. Was it you, [livejournal.com profile] halfdutch? Mmmhmm, I could totally get behind slash on this show too.

AND... What is happening to me? I completely forgot to find H50 online tonight and watch it. I was too busy catching up with things I needed to do here at LJ and AO3!!! Oh well, tomorrow is another day as Scallop said in Gone with the Wind. (yes, I did say scallop on purpose. I have this old joke which refuses to allow me use of her real name: 'Frankly Scallop, I don't give a clam').

And that's all she wrote tonight. Oh, but I did write 1202 words on a H50 fic today, which pleased me immensely as that series is now done and dusted, even if it was new yesterday and I still haven't finished any of those *mumblecan'tbebotheredtocount* WIPs. *sigh*

Like movies? TV? Novels? Music? Can you answer yes to all of these? You can? Is that enough questions?

Well, then, I have something for you! Please go check out [livejournal.com profile] t_h_e_hamster. It's a very small comm I'm running whereby all the members offer their own opinion on various movies and TV shows they've seen, novels they've read and music they've enjoyed. It's small and friendly - it won't clog your flist - and no deadlines! Just post a review when you feel like you have something to share. And, of course, come and read otherwise! Pimp it out to your friends if you like; the more the merrier! It's very slash friendly, but all other reviews are welcome too. It's a place to find things of interest, share your own recs (other than fanfic) and to enjoy the company of like-minded flisters. Please check out the latest review by my good friend [livejournal.com profile] gregoria44 about the movie Labyrinth for a fine example.

Here's that comm name again:

I have a bunch of icons over there in the user pics if anyone wants one, but does anyone have the skills to do a banner we can use for it? I'd love you for life if you did us one! (or might be convinced to write you a ficlet). Thanks, my friends - you may now return to your scheduled viewing! *passes the popcorn*
