I am leaving today to go on vacation to Scandinavia and won't be back until next Sunday. Net time will probably non-existent when I am there, so this is one large catch-all post.

Pretty excited though. Also, since I only have one small backpack (we are going to 17 billion places and lugging suitcases is unappealing), I solved the reading problem by printing out a bunch of books from an on-line library. That way I can throw each page away once I read it :)

So. First topic? The super-awesome Korean drama Time Between Dog and Wolf. I am only on ep 5 but I read spoilers through 14 and OMG. Seriously. Could it get any better? Also, have the makers been reading Lymond or what? Vague spoilers ) He better have a happy ending and get therapy and live happily with JW and have cute kids. Or else. Seriously, all that angst and hurt with no happy ending will be horrible. The poor woobie has suffered enough.

On that note, here is a huge picspam of episode 4, the first one where hurt/comfort really reaches crazy levels: there is cuteness on the beach, and his capture and torture, and rescuing, and a bed scene and...LOVE.



Enter here for the pics )

Hmmm, what else? I know. Bollywood movie. One of the ones I am really looming forward to is Khoya Khoya Chand with Soha Ali Khan and Shiney Ahuja. Not only do I love both of them to bits, but the story, apparently, is set in the Bollywood of the 1950s (!!!!!). It is the story of two talented people. 'There's an actor-director (Shiney Ahuja) who liberates an actress (Soha Ali Khan) from the stranglehold of a powerful actor (Rajat Kapoor), and then begins to use her himself. In the end, he realises the folly of his ways and atones for it.'

I looooove movies about movies, and period flicks are even better. And if it's a love story? JACKPOT. Plus, the trailer looks incredible. Here is the trailer.

Plus, the pics are adorable.



a cornucopia of pics )

Last but not least, watching Bednaya Nastya indirectly reminded me of a book I like but haven't reread in a while. It's one of Dumas' less-known works, The Fencing Master, but it was translated and in print in the USSR because it was about the Decembrist revolt (short summary: a bunch of aristocrat officers revolted on death of Alexander I and demanded reforms. It was suppressed, the leaders were executed, and the rest to Siberia).

Book blather )

ETA: I lied. I have a book rec, too. It's Wuthering High by Cara Lockwood. I don't read YA really often, but this is priceless. It's about a 15 year old Miranda who ends up being sent to delinquent school. Turns out the school is being run by ghosts of famous authors. It's snarky, and funny, and the heroine is adorable, and I like the little lit allusions.
