The Good
The new Orange Cinema ad is hewn from *awesome*. 100% of Muppet *awesome*. I saw this in front of Immortals - more details on that in another post.

As soon as a video of this wonder hits the interwebs, I shall post. It is *that* good!

The Bad
Russell Tovey announces that he is leaving Being Human. I still have to watch S3 - but when I do, that will be it, I fear.

The.... erm
[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo total for the weekend - 200 words.
Quota for the weekend - 685 words.

I'll take it - better than last weekend, that's for sure.

ONE - Not dead. Not undead either. Home internet is on the fritz *again*. Also, who knew trying to have a 'life' would be so... time consuming?!

TWO small spoilers for 'Being Human' 301 )

THREE Prepare to be spammed by movie reviews. I've only posted three so far, but I have another two started and two more on top of that to talk about. Better get my act together here...

To conclude - TEA!

To celebrate have the following...

Pictures from this year's Dieux Du Stade Calendar. If you have seen these already - don't mind me and why didn't you share!?!. Needless to say that if you haven't and you know what I'm talking about... you aren't reading this - because you've already clicked on that link;)

If you don't have a clue - let me say this - gorgeous, naked men leavened with a healthy dollop of (homo)eroticsm. So NSFW but so worth it!

*

If there is anyone *still* reading this post after that... Have pictures of Chris Evans (no, not that one!) as Captain America and Andrew Garfield in the Spiderman costume.

Of the two films, I'm looking forward to the former rather than the latter. Not to mention, Captain America has both Richard Arimitage and Hugo Weaving in it, which is certainly in it's favour.

*

Now, as I haven't seen anyone else really mention this on my flist - I don't know if this is common knowledge or not if it is - y'all are fired! but Being Human returns on Sunday 23rd January for 8 episodes. I've just done some math and the series finale is the day after my birthday. Which if it's anything like the finale for series 2... Ah.

The spoiler-phobic may not want to hit that link - just in case.

N.B.. I am, of course, talking about the UK version. Not the U.S. version. Which is the only time I am mentioning that this year.

*

And now for the memoes part of our broadcast day.

So that is me - how are yous guys?

User Shenannigans - please feel free to scroll past! )

In conclusion - it's going to be a long evening... isn't it?

On a much happier note - Being Human has been nominated for a BAFTA. To put this into context... this is a bit like Supernatural getting nominated for a Primetime Emmy.

Even so - many congratulations to the Cast and Crew - they won't win but at least someone else agrees that this is Good Stuff!

This one is easy! Preaching to the choir with this one as a good half of my flist are already watching this series (or they’ve been put off by my nattering about it!)

Being Human - an incoherent exhortation to watch it! )

Okay, I have been remiss in this, so it's a twofer. I shall try to be a bit quicker with April's but no points for guessing what most of April's will consist of... Doctor Who squee!

Anyway - This is a list of things that I, [livejournal.com profile] becky_monster, considered to be hewn from AWESOME for the months of February and March.

- Spring! Springing! I know there are those on my flist who will laugh hysterically at what we in the UK had as a winter this year but... I hated it and I am glad to see the back of it!

- Winning the lottery! Okay all £6.10 of it but - it's a *win*!

- Having an an office with a roof at work! Do you know how noisy libraries can be? Very! That and having a throw out. Always therapeutic! So much for the paperless office.

- TV! awesomeness of 'Being Human broke my little heart and was inutterably awesome doing it. Seriously, if you aren't already watching this show - do eeet!
Wonders of the Solar System rediscovered my love of astronomy as well as giving me a new lust object - Helllooooo Prof Brian Cox! mind if I sit on your lap so you can explain cutting edge physics to me?

- Writing! - Not as much as last November but... I am!
Admittedly the story I am currently writing will only be posted at gunpoint (long story short - clichearama!) but I am enjoying the whole 'putting words into pixels' thing. Who knows, perhaps there will be readable fic in the not too distant... (serkit message to [livejournal.com profile] kitzen_kat I still want to write your five things suggestion. It's next on the list after the current bunny has been written.)

- Movies! With the Oscars out of the way It's now movie teim again! Feb & March's List Of Movies I Have Seen.

- Doctor Who: New trailer, New, new, new Doctor (who comes across in interviews as being a real sweetheart!). Captain Jack being evil and hawt in 'Desperate Housewives' and with a new album too.

Cited because it's not the mundane that's memorable - it's the magnificent!

The Channel formerly known as 'Sci-Fi' admit that 'Being Human (UK) works because of it's 'chemistry'

Fandom: "NO SH*T SHERLOCK!"*

Personally, I think After Elton hit the nail on the head when they said that 'Being Human' USA is doooomed!

Thoughts?

Now - normally I wouldn't review something I've seen on DVD but I'll make an exception for this.

Twilight (2008) )

On a related tangent - without spoilers. Being Human is still hewn from AWESOMENESS!!! A 'quieter' episode than as of late but nice to see that the Cardiff Acting Mafia is on the case small casting spoiler )

If you are reading this and you are not watching this show, then please rectify this issue immediately. You will be glad you did.
