So it took about a week to recover from Captain America : The Winter Soldier - and I really thought seeing 1.17 Agents of *mumble* would help answer questions, but dammit all those churning thoughts and theories are back and the show has really got to me - like the old days of the whedonverse.  Pain and betrayal.

Guh.slightly spoilerishCollapse )

OMG show. What are you trying to do to me? I was all angsty after Capt America : The Winter Soldier, now I'm just all nervous and stuff.

So I tend to make gif sets frequently  these days and never post them here, only on tumblr - mainly whedonverse and some Tom Hiddleston Film related. Would anyone be interested if I posted here too?  They tend to be textless and plain. Comment if you want to see some.

In the meantime I made a very few Kate icons for a buffyverse appreciation thing on Tumblr

Feel free to snag away.

In the meantime I have nearly finished uploading old vids off viddler and onto Youtube (the site that blocks) and Vimeo.  I just have the whedonverse interviews/con appearance snippets to do. So if you see vids posted on Sunnydale Herald they are the old ones made on WMM and hence have squiffy A/R,stray frames and talky face.

This was the last regular character wallpaper to make - it took me a fair while to actually get around to it, and then I forget to post it here.   Click thumbnail for the 1280 resolution wall



Also as I am so out of touch with this sort of thing and tablet etc what size/ format wallpapers should I be looking to make these days. The ones I do are for wide screen pc etc but I just don't consider laptops and tablets.

Agents of SHIELD

So that latest episode was pretty epic.

I am just loving the whole team right now, but my goodness how awesome and seriously badass is Melinda May?  Another wait before the next episode though. How do they maintain viewing figures with this constant interruption.

Netflix and things

So we decided to give it a spin since we changed ISP to a unlimited package that was more 'unlimited' than the last one.    It's mainly for TV series/seasons that we keep missing and I don't want to buy (yet).  In penance I may have to do more time on the exercise bike as the arse is gonna get pretty well couch shaped to go with those square eyes.

Watched the first ep of  'The Thick of It'. Fuckity fuck, Peter Capaldi is going to be a very interesting Doctor.

Oh and this morning we managed to re-book King Lear for April so YAY. National Theatre site kept crashing though so I should imagine most tickets for the remainder of the run will be gone pretty soon. I just have to pass on those February ones now.

Well so long Viddler

Add to Memories Share
Those of you who use viddler will know that they stopped offering new free accounts quite some time ago. Well this morning was the email telling  us to upgrade to a reasonably priced basic account -  pay 25$ a month or piss off.

Guess which option I'll be choosing.

I have everything on there as a back up streaming option but many of the older vids are only on viddler. The good thing about Viddler was that they don't block vids due to copyright, but the playback isn't the best. I shall most likely now upload those vids solely on viddler to a combination of youtube/vimeo.  Don't want to overload vimeo and risk having the whole account pulled though.    At least most of the old videos are tiny and won't take long to move.

So I booked to see the currently sold out King Lear with Simon Russell Beale (Sam Mendes production) in February. It now appears that they clash with an important (i.e. can't get out of it) black tie family bash.

I was so looking forward to the play and will have to try and get more tickets for later in April/May when advance booking re-opens this Friday. If I thought I could avoid the party without ruffling feathers then I would.

I have two tickets for February 22nd 7.00pm at the National Theatre  Circle . Information on the production is here. It's already had 5star reviews so if anyone wants them please message me or pass info to anyone they think might be interested.

So according to Channel 4's twitter - their Gods of Scheduling (I suspect they are Asgardian and actually Gods of Mischief) have not yet decided on a slot for Marvel's  Agents of SHIELD's return in 2014.

And they wonder why ratings get hit.  Call me jumpy, but I haven't forgotten what a hatchet job they did back in the day on Angel the Series.

We're on a bloody cliffhanger dammit!
