eruthros: Kari from Mythbusters driving construction equipment (Mythbusters - Kari is awesome)
Guys, there is new Mythbusters! There have now been two whole episodes this season, and let me just say, 9x02 (or however we're numbering them now) is a ton of fun.

Mythbusters 9x01: Mission Impossible Mask )

Mythbusters 9x02: Blue Ice )
eruthros: llamas! (llamas)
1. Things I hate: power outages. Especially power outages that were the result of a huge storm with big threatening clouds that made it dark inside even at six pm yesterday. Especially since I could find candles, but not matches, which required me to use one of [personal profile] thingswithwings lighters. And lighters are hard! They involve far too much thumb strength and all the bits are too small -- and as usual it took like ten tries to every one that made a flame, and then several attempts to manage to hold candle + lighter in the right positions. As a consequence, I dripped hot candle wax on my fingers, which reminds me a) that context is important for erotic/not erotic pain, b) that owww, drops from an inch are too close even for white paraffin, and c) that I somehow always manage to blister the knuckles I need to tape in order to type of COURSE. And I ran my hand under water and everything, geez.

2. So last night's Mythbusters (possibly 8x11? they need to have episode numbers on this show) is called "Top 25 Mythbusters Moments," and so I went "ugh, clip show" and nearly didn't watch it. Then I did anyway, because I didn't have anything else to watch tonight, and as it turned out I was glad that I had! Because some spoilery things happened )

3. [personal profile] chagrined and I were talking about [community profile] death_bingo, and agreeing that it has a great premise, and then zie mentioned the possibility of deathfic postage stamps. And proposed one. So I chat-spitballed it, and have included it below the cut because zie asked me to. warning for character death, clowns, elephant dung, and zombies )

I can post episode reviews! So I am. Spoilers for The Two Live Crew Job here )

Why do I still not have a Leverage icon? I'll have to go with Star Trek in honor of Hardison.

So yesterday I got together with [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings and watched all six episodes of SGA that I missed, what with being in the Middle of Nowhere. (It was ... kinda a slog, you guys, six episodes in a row. Especially since we got the vividcon vids in the middle of the day, thus necessitating some vid watching as well.)

So here is something I have observed about Woolsey. And John. Behind this cut here )

Next in line: six episodes of Doctor Who. I'll get there! And then I can watch "Handlebars" and other Vividcon vids! It'll be awesome.

One short and silly thing, the other long and full of a queer reading of the ep.

tons of spoilers, assume for all aired eps )

*deep breath* whoof. I have no idea if that makes sense to someone who wasn't involved in the conversation -- let me know if not, and I'll try to figure out where I've gone wrong.

So after (re-)watching "Common Ground,"1 [livejournal.com profile] graycastle and I decided to rename SGA.

We will henceforth be referring to it as "porn."

As in, "Well, the interesting thing about Porn season two is the way the arrival of the Daedalus limits the tension of every episode..." and "I've never really understood the authorial choices in Porn. I mean, I know what I read into the scene where they come out of the infirmary in Echoes, but what could the Porn directors have possibly thought?" And, in a couple weeks, "omg squee Porn 4x01 airs tonight!!!!!"

I mean. John. "Common Ground." JUST SAYING YOU GUYS.

1. This is part of our ongoing weekend project of Watch Neat Episodes Before Season Four. It probably says a lot about us that we, so far, chose "Underground," "The Storm/The Eye," "Hot Zone" ([livejournal.com profile] graycastle didn't remember this episode much, and I kept pushing all "no! no! Rodney makes awesome faces! there are other scientists! he loves his TEAM, man!"), "Inferno," two scenes from "Sateda," and "Common Ground."

We intend to also watch: "Tao of Rodney" and "Echoes" and maaaaybe "Phantoms." And maybe "The Game." And maybe also two scenes from "Sunday."

Note: there is only one season two episode in there. We tried really hard to be excited about something else. But "Grace Under Pressure" basically equals "Tao of Rodney" in terms of character development, "Epiphany" is way cooler in stories, and "Duet" makes me a little tooth-gritty about gender. SO.
eruthros: Doctor Who: the TARDIS in wrapping paper and a masked Santa (DW - christmasy)
Best headline EVER: "Pants found in ravine." Way to make the readers wtf, Sf Chronicle!

picture behind the cut: the bad wolf really is everywhere )

Spoilers for SGA 3x13 Irresponsible )

Also, my new icon involves evil clockwork Santas peering at the TARDIS. Who can possibly resist evil clockwork Santas?
