To those celebrating...

Merry Christmas!!!

And a Happy Who Day!

On a day for all things Irish, I went to see a movie starring two Scots, (one of whom was pretending to be English) filmed in England, pretending to be in Scotland. BUT. I wore green. Also, the weather is quite Irish today, so...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

The Decoy Bride was really rather cute. And way better than I expected from all the terrible reviews I didn't read. And maybe worth driving through Santa Monica in the rain. Definitely, because it's a rare privilege to see David Tennant on the big screen. *nods*

Last night, there were surprise fireworks we could see from my friend's place. For some reason, this picture, which looks nothing indeed like fireworks, is strangely compelling to me.

First, a post about Doctor Who. Then, a post about Christmas. Maybe. Priorities, all that. ;)

This Doctor Who Christmas special marked a few firsts. Obviously, the first one with the Eleventh Doctor. The first one I watched first on BBCA, and therefore the first I watched in proper HD (on first viewing). So, most of that was good.

The not good (nospoilery). 1. Commercials. I expected that, of course. But without editing (a good thing), the cuts were extremely choppy, especially towards the end. They should have had like an… intermission or something. However, the TARDIS infomercial thing was pretty funny. 2. Covering half the screen with the station ID, the show I was currently watching, and what was coming up next for like half the episode. Made me punchy.

The good (nonspoilery). 1. Well, not having to acquire the episode by other means. So not having to really worry about it. The wait was annoying, but it was only a couple hours once I was done with my Christmassing. 2. The aforementioned HD. I watched most of the ep on my parents tv, which is a real HD tv, not our old huge one in the living room, which is CRT, but was HD ready way back in the day, so can received HD broadcasts and it looks good, but not that good.

All right, that being said… under the cut we go for spoilers! )

I did not watch the trailer. I do not wish to see the trailer! BBCA tried to force me. I saw the first frame, and I heard a sentence about 3/4 of the way through, because I thought it'd be over when I went back to live mode (it was like a minute long?). I don't want to know. But the promo of the Doctor and Amy in America was super cute.

I will watch Graham Norton later. I will probably have more thoughts on Doctor Who later as well.

Merry Christmas!

This is the strangest little interview I've ever read. With Arabella Weir.

On an unrelated note, HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY!!!

OMG, i finished it!!! I'm not being cute or hyperbolic or anything when I say this took me five and a half hours from start to finish! I started at about 10 and finished about 3:30. It was freakin HARD. I've never worked with a stencil before. And there were cute a few snafus. Most of which i saved with a LOT of patience and a little crazy glue. The big problem was that the damn pumpkin was way too thick. Which made it very difficult to cut all the way through. It became a bigger problem with the smaller bits.

Wanna see the process? I documented it for posterity. )

The hardest bits were the eyes and the nose/mouth area. Basically the details of the face nearly made me loose my mind. But it's done. And now is hanging out in my fridge. Until Halloween. :)

It's even vaguely recognizable, right? Right? (ok, so the lips are kinda crappy. Oh well)

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] roxyk630 and [livejournal.com profile] swankkat for the stencil!
