Critics seem to like 'Stardust'! I'm happy for Neil Gaiman :) Time to get the book out of the shelf and go to the movies soon-ish, I believe.

Speaking of Gaiman, this short video of Jonathan Ross kissing Neil Gaiman at Comic-Con is hilarious. Also, this quote is awesome (from his blog):

"Writing a novel is a voyage of discovery," said Neil Gaiman, who has written piles of them (including "American Gods," "Anansi Boys," and "Neverwhere") and sold millions.

But turning a novel into a film is like "running a very sharp-edged maze leading through a minefield, with people shooting at you, in a freezing downpour, having no sense of where the exit might be, pursued by hounds, while blindfolded."

Ooh! I have a new MacBook. It is black and gorgeous, but it will only be delivered in a couple of weeks, for some evil reason.

Jesse Spencer (Chase) and Jennifer Morrison (Cameron), House co-stars, called off their engagement. Oh noes. And then of course the House fandom wanks.

UR was down for a couple of days, and not once did I consider posting at LJ. Hm. I started a couple of new poke wars on Facebook, too. Speaking of which! Feel free to add me on Facebook if you have it; I made an account a couple of weeks ago :)

Hmm. It seems like our fandom took BoldThrough (crappy! name!) very seriously... So people seem to be migrating over to JournalFen/GreatestJournal/InsaneJournal. Just for the record, I have accounts everywhere (JF, GJ, IJ), have had them for a while, never planned to use them (well, I use JF to comment at fandom_wank, but that's all), and still don't. Really, really don't.

Chocoholic squirrel, wtf. Oh, and ew.

...squirrels are freaks. Dutch men with maggots are freakier.

Stardust hardly has any publicity. *insert some kind of face*

Haven't read the book, but a lot of friends (who've also not read the book) said the movie was quite good. *shrug*

Man, I clicked almost all of those links.

Loved the video of Neil getting kissed, though I haven't read Stardust and don't expect to see the film. Apparently they're supposed to be making some scents or something for Good Omens? ... I read that somewhere. Um. Anyway.

Man, a new Mac? Didn't you just clean Aziraphale?

Excited to see what you name the new kid. Do tell!

I saw Stardust the other day, and I thought it was excellent! Though I haven't had the opportunity to read the book yet, so I can't say how it was in translation. Robert De Niro is THE MAN, though. *hugs him in his negligee*

Pfeiffer is hot. I know, I know, but really. She was great in Hairspray too.

If it's Black, you gotta plenty of choice.
I'd offer Lee Jordan as a name, you see. Black and cool. He says he's trying to ask Angelina out in the middle of the game, in front of the whole school. The guy must be respected.

Or, of course, the major wank reason, Blaise.

Or even a Black Family Tree name.

... Or something else altogether.

I'm kinda sad they called off their engagement. But, after Angelina Jolie married Brad Pitt they shouldn't be allowed to marry to keep the world a prettier place.

(Não pode se fazer monopólios de beleza.)

Well, of course, my first thought was about BFT, but there's nothing wrong with making other sugestions, is there?

Only that... I could spent HOURS sugesting BFT names, do you really want me to?

I know. I've thinking about it since their marriage (Pitt/Jolie, of course)

I bet you do. *laughs*

I'd, of course, would suggest Lycoris. It's a great name.
