It's that time of year again. Once again, [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose and I watch *coughmockcough* the Eurovision Song Contest and I compile a list of names to help me remember.

When I'm Supreme Overlord of Earth I will ban all ballads from Eurovision. Power ballads can stay. After several disappointing years Ukraine finally brought back the ridiculous and random and it was BEAUTIFUL! In fact I ended up voting a second time for them (first vote went to Russia).

As always, no offence to any of the countries.

1. UK: Why?
2. Hungary: Modern 80's in a car seat coat
3. Albania: Wailing Amidala
4. Lithuania: Sparkly Blindfold and the Cellblock Tango Backdrop
5. Bosnia and Herzegovina: Vampire Gaga
6. Russia: Russian Grannies (I can't top that name)
7. Iceland: Movie Power Ballad
8. Cyprus: Princess Leia Dancer and Book Table
9. France: NUDITY also some singing
10. Italy: Amy Winehouse
11. Estonia: Escaping Eyebrows
12. Norway: Boyband Hoodie
13. Azerbaijan: Swan Lake's on fire
14. Romania: Upstaging Band
15. Denmark: Why, everything
16. Greece: Galadriel backup singer
17. Sweden: The magical summoning Hammer Time Dance
18. Turkey: Sacha Baron Cohen and the Bat Dancers
19. Spain: Backlit Dress
20. Germany: HAT!

22. Macedonia: Nice Suit
23. Ireland: Ultimate Jedward: Aquatic Edition

ETA: SO CLOSE to losing. And Russia were robbed.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Beauty and the Beast, easily. Aladdin is a close second, it's the first movie I remember seeing at a cinema, but Beauty and the Beast is and always will be one of my favourite movies. I've loved it since before I can remember. It's been a constant presence in my life, Belle was one of my favourite characters as a child (brunette and a bookworm? No I didn't identify). It's been a source of comfort in times of trouble, I've used the soundtrack to cheer myself up on bad days and to calm myself down after nightmares. It's a part of who I am and I love it for that.

Yes it's a few days late, no I don't care. Preserving my list of names for the entries, as I've done for the past two years. Happily I wasn't left by myself this year, I had [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose  and [livejournal.com profile] loonielass  to share the hilarity with.

Overall: Not as disappointing as last year. There were some that were dull and serious but there was enough craziness to keep me entertained. Sadly despite my vote Moldova did not win, boo.

In which we talk in code. Don't worry if you don't understand anything, neither did any of us.

Apricot is lacerated, frogs to follow )
I can't speak for any of the others, but I was trying to make a LITTLE bit of sense with some of my codes.

Okay, I've decided to make myself start posting here more, even if nobody is reading, SO, I just now got back from the cinema having seen Toy Story 3 AT LAST (I know I know, shuttup). My rambly and out of order and generally wibbly thoughts, there's probably a lot of things I'll have forgotten already. Needless to say, spoilers ahoy:

DEATH BY MONKEYS )

And yes, I am aware that my avatar doesn't really fit the post, sadly I lack a Pixar one.

Dear Eurovision: I watch this show for the cheesy europop, strange choreography and crazy staging, I DO NOT EXPECT HALF THE ENTRIES TO BE BALLADS! Ukraine was a paticular disappointment, I voted for them last year and was expecting something as mental as that, they did not deliver.

Now that that's off my chest. I did another list of names for the entrants, to help me keep them straight for voting. No [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose  this year, I had to make do with various people on Twitter and the ONTD thread. Once again, no offence meant to any of the countries (except mine, we sucked).

So, my list for this year:

1. Azerbaijan: R'n'B Bullet Rain
2. Spain: WTF Toys
3. Norway: Dizzy Ballad (the spinning camera made me dizzy)
4. Moldova: Rave Sax
5. Cyprus: Fabulous Hair

In which we watch on the iPlayer (and mine went crazy at the end) characters are stupid, Merlin is sad/pretty and [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose  is slightly tipsy. Also, it's late, I'm tired, I probably messed something up in copying this. Meh.

Madness this way )

nb2000: photo of a leather covered book with heavy metal fastenings lying on a wooden floor and surrounded by bits of material (Default)

So [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose  got to go to the Merlin preview screening and was telling me about what happened. And then this happened:

Sort of spoilery and sort of disturbing )
nb2000: photo of a leather covered book with heavy metal fastenings lying on a wooden floor and surrounded by bits of material (Default)

So [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose  and I were chatting and came up with a really awesome Merlin eppy.

Best Merlin Ever )

Oh mah gawd

So last night the house randomly shook for a few seconds, but my mother was all "Huh I didn't notice."

Then this morning I find out that there was an EARTHQUAKE just north of here! news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/8086821.stm

I knew I hadn't imagined it.

Title stolen from [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose 

So she and I were discussing episode 11 of Merlin (we're a tad obsessed), in particular the unicorn from that episode and well:

Reason number...I don't even know anymore )
nb2000: photo of a leather covered book with heavy metal fastenings lying on a wooden floor and surrounded by bits of material (Default)

Because [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose  insisted.

So this is a story I've been working on for like...*thinks* nearly three years now. Basically once upon a time (oooh) a bunch of us would hang out on a message board and chat thingy and I eventually started writing a story (loosely) based on, well, us. It wound up with two (not very good) sequals, the second I finished early 2007. Then at the beginning of this year (2008) I decided to go back through and rework some of it. Mostly clearing up parts that didn't read as well as I thought, adding in extra description and adding some new ideas that I'd had.

I may give up and like, not finish this ever but then again I may not (or [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose  may insist I keep going). So without further delay...*tries one last time to talk self out of it* Okay here's the bloody thing.

Title: Subject 908
Rating: Uh PG-13 for the moment
Warning: Some strong language (not much in this though)

Chapter 1 )
nb2000: photo of a leather covered book with heavy metal fastenings lying on a wooden floor and surrounded by bits of material (Default)

So for a while I've had this...thing, this piece of description lurking in my head. I'd considered writing it down but never got around to it. Then my friend [livejournal.com profile] ameseynrose insisted (rather loudly) that I post SOMETHING here and well, I couldn't really think of anything else so this weird (at least to me) piece of description will have to do. I have no explanation for where this thing came from, my mind is a strange, strange place to be.

God turn back now, it's just not good )
