Can I just say how RIDICULOUSLY attractive I'm finding Doc Holliday on Wynonna Earp.

Like. Really. Really. Ridiculously. Good looking.

Despite the mustache. (Because of the mustache?)

Also. The fact that he played the Druid guy in Lost Girl is killing me. IDK why, I find it utterly hilarious. Druid guy was also stupidly hot, while also being totally ridiculous and wearing terrible clothes. Also morally ambigous. No mustache though. 

Is it a real mustache though? This is the question. Cos it's grey whereas his hair isn't. Which makes me think fake. Also it takes time to grow something that big. And he clearly didn't sport one before. But then he has facial hair in interviews so maybe he'd just shaven it off after the show? IDK.

I have spent too much time pondering the question of this man's facial hair.

He's hot. It makes him hotter! It makes him look kinda rat-like?

He's really sexy. He's kinda wiry and weaselly looking? IDK

I mean, there's this:

But I prefer this:

Did I mention he has a hat?

I have lost perspective. I would very much like HBO to buy this series and then fill every episode with really explicit sex scenes in which Wynonna and Doc fuck on every surface in the house and then christen the pink car, and also other highly specific fantasies I may or may not have had regarding these two. And fucking.

Seriously I have not had such a pornographic reaction to a pairing in... Ever?

In other news, this series has, like diversity and stuff.

Also, this breakdown of how it's basically Buffy, rings fairly true. But I definitely get a Faith vibe off Wynonna more than a Buffy.

I have three 'The Sartorial Choices of X' picspams I want to make, I think I need to accept the fact I'm interested in fashion, and solve my awful wardrobe problem.

I'm gonna leave half my clothes here in Spain. I can't take them all home, so away they go. All my trousers are falling apart at the seams anyway. (Literally. I have had THREE SEPARATE PAIRS rip apart while I was wearing them. I TEACH. I OCCASIONALLY FACE THE BOARD. BACK TO THE ROOM. THIS IS GETTING EMBARRASSING.)

When I get home I'm getting rid of as much as I can. I have scads of hand me downs: things my mother has bought me; things my aunts/cousins have given me, plus random shit I buy at Primark because it's cheap and I am weak.


And honestly, I increasingly love spending time on fashion blogs, even if I barely understand half of what they're on about.

Anyway, I'll chart it here or something, but for now...

Linkification! - Fashion blogs! )

So, following on from previous Bollywood-ness. I decided I need to catch up on some movies. considering I've seen a grand total of about 5 Bollywood films, this may take a while. I watched Devdas (2002), didn't realise there were multiple versions until after. I'm gonna watch the 1955 one as well if I can bear it. Because, you see... IT'S ALL ABOUT DEVDAS' MANPAIN. To be fair, the title should have tipped me off. But, okay, I'm not expecting much by way of any sort of equality in these movies. Have a tangential explanation: I read someone's post about silly actioners recently in which they were complaining about various fails, and it got me thinking about my 'silly bang bang' category of films, (action, explosions), and how I don't expect anything from them. They serve exactly the purpose stated - fire go boom! So while the various fails register, they don't hurt.

The same thing mostly applies here. Except. This was epic bad, guys. I know it's a famous story, plus it's basically a retelling of Krishna/Radha and so I feel bad knocking it. But, but... THE MANPAIN OMFG. He fucks up his relationship with Paro thanks to his indecision and cowardice, and then he proceeds to DRINK HIMSELF TO DEATH. That's it, literally. The only other thing he manages to do is verbally abuse Chandramukhi into falling in love with him (yeah IDK either.) Plus there's the whole scarring Paro by hitting her in the face with a necklace in order to show his love.

I mean, all the various fails: the marriage focus, the evul in-laws, the getting locked in her house by her husband. All that is pretty much par for the course, but, egad the manpain. There's all the stuff the women do: Paro has to be the step-mother in this new family and deal with a husband in love with his dead wife. Chandramukhi is a whore as Devdas so likes to remind her, she has to be savvy and clever and fight off EVIL MOUSTACHE's amorous overtures. BUT NO INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON THAT, WE FOCUS ON DEVDAS ROLLING AROUND THE PLACE DRINKING AND AND MAINPAINING HIS WAY THROUGH HIS USELESS LIFE.

Basically I just want fic where Paro and Chandramukhi elope and live in sin together. IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK?

Anyway, on a more shallow note Shakrukh Khan's nose was as large as ever, eyebrows were as awesome as ever, and Ashwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit are both stupidly gorgeous. Dola Re Dola was my favourite song/dance scene, even if it does fail the Bechdel test (what am I saying? The entire movie fails it). IT SHOWCASES THE FEMSLASH POTENTIAL THOUGH. Also it features bonus creepy moustache being creepy. He goes on to EPIC REVEAL Chandramukhi as a whore in the next scene.

If I were to do an 'official' SGU rewatch, would anyone be interested? I could plug it not just at [ profile] young_rush but at one of the general sgu comms as well. How regular are rewatches usually? One ep a day? Plus there's the question of timezones. Also there needs to be some sort of liveblogging element. AIM would be easiest for me since I already have it, but maybe ljchat would be an easier option for everyone else? How does ljchat even work? Anyone used it before?

So I held off watching Thor and Captain America because I'd reached WHITE MANPAIN BROMANCE saturation point. But then I read that fic I mentioned in my last post, and another Loki AU fic (Shatter by Aria, where Loki was sent down, not Thor) and SOMEONE started RPing Loki, and I just needed Loki in my life, clearly.

Thor )


Captain America )


Tom Hiddleston talks Avengers )


Random rec: Fright Night fic. THIS is what I wanted the film to be. I know, I have unrealistic expectations.

I post A LOT. I feel like I should be apologising? But, like, I won't be offended if I get de-friended or filtered. Hell, I won't even know if I'm getting filtered, so um, No, not apologising. I do have a warning in my (HAHA HIDDEN) profile. (Also I get far too much amusement out of the HAHA HIDDEN-ness. /am loser)

Right, so I read strive seek find yield by waldorph. (I love STXI fic that really thinks about the future, and incorporates all these awesome things about changing gender norms and society etc. it makes me wriggle with glee.)

Anyway, then then I had this urge to stare at pretty people in pretty suits... Because IDEK, my mind, it can be weirdly specific sometimes.

You know what? Can we have a story about a bunch of lesbians, with this one token gay male relationship, like a brother of one of the leads, or an ex-boyfriend from before she came out. And the brother's/ex's partner really hates her, for no apparent reason, and is all bitchy etc. and guess what?! The guys want a baby! And they want to use one of the lesbian's wombs to do so! And they want it right away and it's all weirdly sudden and no one seems to deal with emotional repercussions!

Let's do that, instead of, oh. THE OTHER WAY AROUND. Or hey, radical idea? LET'S NOT DO IT AT ALL.

In other words: The Broken Hearts Club = QAF except with Timothy Olyphant in. )

Perfect Getaway. (Total spoilers! and picspams) )

My computer keeps crashing. Mainly because I've been trying to load multiple vids at the same time, (festvids masterlist is up and I'm catching up on [ profile] veni_vidi_vids recs*.) Also tabbed browsing? Is the death of me. I am incapable of sticking to one thought thread. MUST. CLICK. OTHER. THINGS. LOTS. OPEN. SAME. TIME.)

Anyway, this is bugging me. A LOT. Seriously, can't wait until I can get a new laptop. COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS. MAN.

[*hey, veni vidi outranks the porn site. I wonder if those two are caught in a perpetual battle for first place on google, this amuses me.]


Is it shallow that the main thing I miss about season one SPN is Sam's hair?

I mean, there's other stuff as well. Classic tied up in each other!neverletgo!Wincest is pretty awesome. And I've never cared for Castiel, so the break up of Sam/Dean for Castiel/Dean and Sam, never sat well with me (I can tolerate it when it becomes the awesome foursome of Castiel/Dean, Gabriel/Sam, but it's not the SAME).

Also I really think they've got an inverse relationship going on between the quality of their acting and the season number. Seriously. Batman voice? 'Nuff said.

I kinda miss the whole monster of the week, emphasis on scary horror, not demonic apocalypse. Which is well hypocritical, because the horror monsters are the reason I stopped watching. Mainly. I am a nightmare prone baby. This are fact.

I'm sure there's more, it's starting to bug me. Halp?
