Since I'm leaving for Oxford tomorrow, Everything's Eventual will have to go back to the library, so I skipped ahead and read the story of 1408. At 2 AM. And it is way, way scarier than the movie. And I read it at 2 AM.

"A life rule if you're going to read those things: during the day, near a bunny." -Dad

That may be the best advice I've gotten so far this year.

And yes, I leave for Oxford, and BADA, tomorrow. There's no internet access in the dorms. :/ There are interweb cafes around town, but time will be limited. And so I say to you, as usual: see ya on the flip-side!

I leave you with the ship-meme and a buncha quizzes.

Jack Sparrow's (mostly) loyal first mate, you spend most of your time fishing your captain out of trouble-- or fishing yourself out of whatever trouble your captain's gotten you into this time. The proverbial old salt, you've seen and heard just about everything there is during your time at sea, and you always have a story or two up your sleeve, especially when the films require some helpful expository dialogue.

Clancy Brown, an NU alum, is on campus filming a movie. Tomorrow he's having lunch with a select few students. Of which I am one.

Clancy Brown. Brother Justin. Desmond's predessecor on 'LOST'. Clancy. Mutha-Fuckin'. Brown. I will be sitting mere feet away from him and his Christopher-Lee-rivaling voice.

It hasn't quite sunk in yet, especially since I'm not sure how much I'll actually get to talk with him. But I'd like to ask him whether he's aware of what they call him on Television Without Pity.

OMG I am in danger of spending SO much money come fall.

Plus the CarnyCon store has some of the funniest stuff I've ever seen. Well, it's only funny if you've seen Carnivale. But still.

I am in a funk.
Part of last night's dream was me frantically trying to finish a paper for Shakespeare class, so I woke up this morning with the terrible feeling that there was something I ought to be doing. And it hasn't gone away. I feel useless. I feel like I should be doing something, and whatever I happen to be doing--even if it's something productive--isn't it.

Well, I guess everyone has their days. I just needed to share that. Hugs would be nice, but at this immediate moment there is no one around to distribute them.

On to funner stuff. Something I discovered yesterday did make me squee, and that was this:

MediaVillage has heard that HBO is seriously considering developing a two hour movie or a four-hour miniseries that would tie up the tantalizing loose ends from the final episode of its supernatural dust-bowl drama Carnivale.
There be spoilers in the complete article, but if you wanna read it, it's here.

50 Books:
6)) The Grey Fairy Book, Andrew Lang
7)) As You Like It, Will Shakespeare

And as for my weekend, all I have to say is: Toora loora...

Some of you knew I was making this--well, it's finally finished.

.MOV Format | iTunes Format
(Spoilers: clips from all over the series)

Been working on this one since September: snags included varied vacations, learning how to cross-fade properly, and the period of mourning following 'Serenity'. Not to toot my own horn too much, but I'm pretty proud of having finished it ^___^ So Firefly fans--please to watch? Enjoy? Tell your friends?
The iTunes-ness was mostly for my own benefit, but if anyone else wants to carry my vid around with them, I won't complain. :)

And in case you missed my first attempt at fan-video:

(Spoilers: clips from Season One)

As I said to [livejournal.com profile] herophelia when I started in on the Firefly vid, I think I'm destined to only ever make Switchfoot videos.

Since I'm just going crazy with the linkies tonight, how about a Song of the Day:
DOA // Foo Fighters
I actually think this would make a great 'Serenity' video. The concept strikes me as amusing, in a really, really morbid way.

For [livejournal.com profile] 31_days, I've decided that I'm going to try to make all my entries about Carnivale. Not neccessarily so that they form a complete fic, but that's the fandom I'm gonna do them about. To log them (apart from on my writing journal, [livejournal.com profile] p0t_0_g0ld), I'm putting them up on FF.net under the title Freak Show 31.

It's going to be very spoiler-y for the series through the second season (the first one, "Be indomitable, o my heart", takes place right after the last episode), and most of you wouldn't know what the hell was going on anyway cause you haven't seen it. Just posting it here cause it's the first thing I've put on FF.net in months.

P.S. Happy harvest day. ^_____^

Lunch/Carnivàle tomorrow with teh Zach. Emily is in a happy place.
a_leprechaun: (ben puff)
So after making my Ben Hawkins/Hufflepuff icon, I said, "Why not sort some other Carnivàle characters?"

Let the Sorting Begin )

Because of this, I am now much better acquainted with Photoshop's "Gradient Overlay" feature. w00t for that.

Now if only I could get myself to study...

(Icons cross-posed to [livejournal.com profile] carnivale_icons.)

EDIT: Hmm, and there seems to be a debate over the placement of Rita-Sue... (she's the blonde woman I placed in Slyth, for those who don't know)

a_leprechaun: (ben puff)
I found myself with an extra icon space, and decided to occupy it with a Hufflepuff icon. I went searching around a bit, and actually found quite a number of available ones... but in the end, I decided to carry out the tradition of only using my own handmade icons when I got the idea to put Ben Hawkins on it.

No, that isn't supposed to be Stephen S (although I suppose you could take it that way also), but 'Carnivàle's Ben Hawkins. Yes, Ben is a 'Puff, and I shall tell you why:
-He has a very kind heart regarding those he cares about.
-He has little aversion to getting his hands dirty (like you had a choice in those days *cough*).
-He's incredibly stubborn, and doesn't enjoy being pushed around (even if he ends up getting pushed around a lot of the time).
-Simple process of elimination. He's not rash enough for Gryffindor, smart enough for Ravenclaw, or conniving enough for Slytherin. Thus....

I know this is an inordinate amount of time to spend talking about an icon, but I am still very proud of it because it kills four birds with one stone: Harry Potter, Carnivàle, Race, and Whenever I'm in a Hufflepuff Mood.

I am awesome. ::dances off::

Fandom-themed weddings meme. Interesting.

RIGHT WAY TO INCORPORATE THE CARNIVAL THEME: Perform the ceremony in a tent outdoors. Have a sword swallower, fire-eater, and tarot card reader at the reception. Possibly a ferris wheel, if you've got the money.
WRONG WAY TO INCORPORATE THE CARNIVAL THEME: Have a bunch of dirty men walk around spitting.

RIGHT WAY TO USE LINES/SCENES FROM THE SHOW: Before the ceremonial first kiss, have the groom say "Hell of a marriage we got here" and the bride answer, "Wouldn't trade it." You'll probably want to leave out the line about there not being any takers.
WRONG WAY TO USE LINES/SCENES FROM THE SHOW: Have the groom refer to his bride in Lodz-ish metaphors like "my little clarinet" or "my buttercup". Might seem sweet, but think about it. It's Lodz. He's creepy.
INCREDIBLY WRONG WAY to USE LINES/SCENES FROM THE SHOW: Have the couple "pick a number". If they both survive, they can get married.

INCREDIBLY WRONG WAY DRESS UP THE PRIEST: Put him behind a curtain and have him smoke a cigarette. (Actually, that might be kind of cool...)

Just caught Terminator III on HBO2. I actually haven't seen the first two, but I knew the basic plot and I knew Nick Stahl was in it :-D So I watched it. Not bad for an action flic- suspenseful, somewhat unpredictable, exciting... My biggest complaint would be that the car chase in the beginning is about a million hours long -_-

I would like to see Nick Stahl in something where he's NOT playing the reluctant savior of the human race, lol. His character from Terminator is so like the one from Carnivale, I still thought of him as Ben Hawkins until about halfway through the movie. Although, the first time I heard what his actual voice sounded like, I went, "Whaaa??" Apparently he lowers it a bit when he plays Ben.

Wow, I really am catching up on my movies lately. ^_^ Whee for summer vacation.

Nick Stahl is delicious. Though in finding this picture I found out he smokes :-p Yarr. Well, nobody's perfect (like it really matters he smokes when all I'm doing is looking at his picture. lol ^_^;;)...

This site has what appears to be the titles of the next three Carnivale eps- meaning the first three eps of the Second Season!

even better, This site claims the second season will be beginning in the fall- not the winter, as most fans had thought!

And I'm seeing HP3 tonight.

Huzzah for multiple fandoms at once. ^_^! Hmm, Carnivale and Harry Potter. I certainly am getting my dose of magic and destiny this week :-D

Cut because some of the people who read this journal have yet to finish the first 6 eps of Carnivale (I'm lookin' at you, Cory!)

Which Dead Carnivale Character are you? )
a_leprechaun: (Default)
My copy of Wicked from amazon.com came today! I'm up to page 101 already ^_^

I like how the characters are pushed more towards the gray area than they were in the show, but it does make it more difficult to decide who you like. The only character so far I've taken a genuine liking to is Boq.

And now... another songset. lol. Oh, the geekiness of me :3

This time it's NOT LoTR, though... shocker, huh? ~_^ No, this time it's "Carnivale"... or, to be more specific, Rita-Sue Dreyfuss and her uncanny characteristic resemblance to Matron Mama Morton.

[community profile] quagmire's thoughts on Gecko's lack of appearences thus far in the series:
I assume we'll see more of him in Season Two.
Or, at the end up season one, he turns out to be God and is all "'Sup, Tree Bitch?"
