dangermousie: (Dr Who: Ten by objection_icons)
Off to a family Thanksgiving, loaded with clothes, gifts and both Proposal Daisakusen and My Name is Kim Sam Soon for watching in my free time. Oh, and Montgomery Clift and Marlon Brando's The Young Lions.

I am also taking the following books: Nicholas Nickleby, Atonement (I bought an edition with James and Keira on the cover. Normally I hate movie tie-in editions but James McAvoy the cover looks so pretty) and Joe Keenan's My Lucky Star, which sort of reads like a modern Wodehouse romp.

Will I ever finish all of it? No way, but I like choices :)

I have tried to watch the anime version of The Count of Monte Cristo but had to give up a few minues in because the weird animation, while interesting in theory, in practice made me feel I was on an acid trip.

And because I seem to be all about MV's lately, here is the My Name Kim Sam Soon MV:

Watching 'Doomsday' bits in the morning (for screencapping) is a bad BAD idea. Your face will end up blotchy like hell. FUCK. Starting with end of S2, the Doctor's arc is losing what he cares about: woman he loves in Doomsday, more and more of himself in S3, culminating with the last person of his kind, a friend/foe in LotTL. It's all about how completely isolated and lonely he is, isn't it? A catalogue of loss.

My new show to watch is Life on Mars with John Simm. After being involved in a car accident in 2006, DCI Sam Tyler wakes up to find himself in 1973. Is it real, is it a coma? Who knows. But he has to adjust.

MV:



Oh, and it seems I have to lay off the word 'soulmate,' at least in the Who fandom, as they have TPTB on their side. I found some quote where Russell T. Davies referred to Doctor/Rose as 'soulmates.' But I still hate that word the way Cybermen hate Daleks. *sticks tongue out*

In other news, Does anyone else have a favorite rainy weather book? It’s been rainy and gloomy here today (though I had an awesomely geeky lunch with Mr. Mousie, eating soup and discussing Doctor Who. Few better ways to spend your lunch).

But anyway, my favorite rainy-grey-day book, the book that I want to curel up with on the couch, drinking tea, is Charles Dickens’ Nicholas Nickleby (I am a huge Dickens fan, and it’s proof of how much I love Mr. Mousie, that I still married him despite his dislike of Dickens :P).

Rambles on NN and OMF )

In other news, I am amused that amazon.co.uk keeps trying to suggest Touching Evil to me as a DVD I might like (probably because I have other Robson Green series in there). Heh. Fat chance. I saw some of it because [livejournal.com profile] fire_snake liked it, and it was very very excellent, and it is one of the very few things I have up because it was much too depressing and angsty! True, the subject matter (the characters work in a serial killer type investigative unit) wasn’t chirpy to begin with, but the whole modus operandi for the show seemed to be to punish Robson Green’s character for any happiness he might have had. Sort of a ‘hah! You forgot for a second the utter desolation and horror of your existence! Time to do something horrific to remind you of it, like killing a cute child you feel responsible for. You need to know life’s not sunshine and puppies. Unless it’s puppies boiled by sunshine into a gloopy mess. Forget any hopes you might have had for surcease of pain for longer than two seconds, puny mortal!’

Seriously. I got off the angst train shortly after they killed a character I liked in some season because seriously, it was fictional equivalent of fingernail pulling. Excellent series, but enough to make you hit your head on a wall.
