christycorr: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (123)
January was so academically overwhelming. I handed in several essays, which was...uh, exciting, but most importantly, I submitted a PhD funding proposal, and good God, drafting (and redrafting, and redrafting, and did I mention redrafting) that fucking thing was a ridiculously horrid process. By the time I submitted it, I was almost hating my topic without even having started my PhD. Stiiill, it's all dooone. :D :D :D And I have a couple of lighter weeks now before essays and exams start up again, thank God.

I'm going to the Dublin premiere of Much Ado About Nothing, which Joss will attend! Ridiculously excited for this, I can't even. It almost makes up for the fact that John and Hank Green came to the UK this week and I didn't even realise it until John updated vlogbrothers with a London video. *sob* GOD FUCKING DAMN IT, WHY.

Ahem. Anyway. I've translated so much stuff for the OTW these past few weeks—the Portuguese version of transformativeworks.org is pretty much ready to go, and I'm ridiculously proud of it \o/ My precious.

OTW work in general has been beyond brilliant. Everyone in DevMem, Translation and I&O seems committed to changing things and innovating and just. ♥! *fangirls [personal profile] agnieszkas and [personal profile] juniperphoenix* So, so happy with my fannish endeavours, and life in general is way less stressful now that there are no deadlines looming, and eeee. *collapses in a puddle of slightly-less-busy bliss*

Wow. Um. It's been a while! I aten't dead, as Granny Weatherwax would put it. How are you all? :D I've been spending most of my time on Twitter and Facebook, and LJ/DW ended up really neglected, poor things. Also, I've been (re)watching Buffy and Angel and Bones nonstop for weeks and somehow I'm still not sick of David Boreanaz's face. Mysteries of the universe.

(I feel like I should mention this in no way constitutes a hardcore Buffy/Angel shipping manifesto. I adore Spike. I wish he and Buffy could shag live happily ever after, only not really, because that would take half the fun out of the ship.)

In old news—X-Men: First Class was all kinds of awesome! I've already read a fair deal of fanfiction in the past month, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sweetcherrytree's linkage and the kink memes, but if you have any links, feel free to share!

And how awesomely awesome was The Doctor's Wife? Omg. I still can't get over it. Oh, Neil Gaiman.

In related news, I've added George R. R. Martin to the list of authors I fangirl shamelessly. July 12 can't come soon enough! And Game of Thrones season 2 can't, either. *grumbles* *shakes fist* *hates HBO so much — except for the hating bit, 'cause God, that show is brilliant*

I've also created a tumblr today—not sure why, really, apart from the fact that it makes following all my favourite tumblrs a great deal easier. Drop me a line if you have an account there; I'll be happy to follow you! *grins*

In far more important news, [personal profile] oxymora's getting to Brazil from Germany! TODAY! She'll be here for the Deathly Hallows premiere and everything! Eeeeee! *EXCITED*
christycorr: Jon Stewart (The Daily Show) (True story.)
I'm in Rome! I've been enjoying the city a great deal. It's lovely, even if the number of Ancient Roman buildings destroyed and commandeered by the Catholic Church makes me want to die inside more often than not. It's not anti-Christian animosity, see—it's just, I'm a really fangirly Republican Rome fangirl, and GAH WHY DIAFF UGH.

...Ahem. I've also been to London and Paris recently, and it was awesome! [livejournal.com profile] wendybarrie_ and I met [personal profile] oxymora in Paris, and we'll see her again in Venice this weekend, yay! On the less yay-worthy side of things, we were robbed in the train, and some douche took all our money while we slept. Also, some random perv cornered us in the Paris subway—anyway, not good.

Buuut enough RL babbling! Sayeth [personal profile] afterthree:

By doing this in my own journal instead of in [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42's comments I'm probably turning this into a meme, but it's kind of awesome and I think deserving of meme status.

The idea is that we all watch different shows, even when we all watch the same ones. (...) What shows within shows have you watched?


Here's what I've been watching lately, in no particular order:

- The Oh My God, Neal/Peter/Elizabeth Is So Canon Show.

- The David Tennant Is Surprisingly Endearing When Babbling Like A Madman Show.

- The Nathan Fillion Fillions Around For Forty Minutes A Week, Oh And Incidentally Beckett Is Also Very Badass Show.

- The Needs Moar Misha Collins Show The Spot The Episode Bits That Will Make Fangirls Go Nuts, Kill Things, Die Of Embarrassment, And/Or Write Shittons of Fanfiction Show. (I love this one.)

- The One Where Matt Bomer Speaks Klingon The One Where Jayne Cobb Is An NSA Agent ...The Brandon Routh Is SO PRETTY Show. Because he iiiiis. ♥ WHERE'S THE FIC, FANDOM.

- The Most Fucked Up Protagonist In Television Nowadays, Who May Just Be One Of My Favourite Characters Ever Show. Alternatively: The Michael C. Hall Is God, And Also Creepy As Fuck Show.

- The Ben Linus Is A Magnificent Bastard and wait, what? WTF IS GOING ON? Show, which I just resumed watching last week. I still haven't finished season four, but I plan to soon!

- The I'm Trying Really Hard To Be A Good Quinto Fangirl And Keep Watching Just For Sylar, But YAWN! Show.

- The Topher!Victor Show. There were a lot of things I loved about it (The Most Thought-Provoking Premise In A While Show could work, too), but really. Topher!Victor. I mean my God. Enver Gjokaj is a genius.

- The Barney Stinson Is Awesome, If A Tad Too Repetitive, But That's Mostly Still Somewhat Okay Show. - It's also been the Wow, Robin Scherbatsky Is Such A BAMF Show, but, you know, amen to this fandomsecret. :(

- The Tried Too Hard To Be Ocean's Eleven And Failed, But That's Okay Because There's Always Hardison, Eliot and Parker To Awesome Things Up Show.
christycorr: Fangirls (Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) (Fan.)
[livejournal.com profile] wendybarrie_ asked me to upload this, so in case anyone else wants it—



In case you don't know what this is: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is Joss Whedon's (Buffy, Firefly, Dollhouse) brainchild, written and filmed during the Writers' Guild 2007-8 strike. It's a supervillain's video blog. It's a musical. Said supervillain—Dr. Horrible himself—is played by the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother's Barney Stinson). His nemesis, Captain Hammer, is the awesome Nathan Fillion (Castle, Firefly, Buffy); the girl Dr. Horrible loves from a distance is none other than Felicia Day, geek muse extraordinaire (Buffy, The Guild).

Seriously. It's awesome.

So! If you've lived under an internet rock for the past couple of years, hurry along and watch the 45-minute micro-series by downloading the file below, or on YouTube.

Awesomely enough, the Dr. Horrible DVD's commentary track is also a musical, sung by the writers and the cast. It may actually, at times, be slightly more brilliant than Dr. Horrible itself.
