Of all the things I've done in the last couple of weeks one thing… - Corrosive Shame

Of all the things I've done in the last couple of weeks one thing I've not done is update LJ. This isn't really the slow yet inevitable parting of intimate friends, if not lovers; rather it's a reflection of how I'm having enough trouble reading that I'm not writing.

So what this means for you is that you'll continue to get major spamblasts of everything I can remember approximately once every two weeks. At least for now...

Looking back it's not actually been as long as I'd thought since I updated, despite the last one being rather self-indulgent and not at all interesting. Two weekends have (to be honest) passed since a proper update. I've downloaded a lot of Movies and TV, I've been to the cinema, I've played some LRP and I've had one of my eyes turn from white to red. And not this time in the name of anyone's grand design.

Movies wise, my crib sheet tells me I've watched the following:

Return of the King (too much time post-coronation edition). It's wonderful. I feel the urge to screech "Stupid Fat Hobbitses" at all my co-workers. Is that a good sign?

Hawk the Slayer. It's a film I keep expecting to get better. However, despite extensive research it's still not happened. Oh well, it's at least mirthful.

300. Once again, I proved my ability to enjoy a film solely based on how it looks. And I don't just mean the Oracle. It's an exceptionally well visualised movie and in this case that's enough for me.

Oz. Up to the end of Series 2, after a long break. My oh my. This is quite an interesting little series. It's frankly terrifying for the most part - and I must admit I like that in a television programme.

It's certainly more interesting than Lost which, despite one interesting episode in recent history, is getting a bit tedious. If I didn't have the obsessive-compulsive nature that drives me towards watching it all - I'd possibly have given up.

I could write something about Doctor Who and Life on Mars, but I've not watched them yet. I might even bother soon - but I've got Deadwood to investigate first.

Then, in the middle of it all, there was LRP. Maelstrom was good. At least, in the sense that the event went well, the people were pretty much without exception lovely. I could gush further but then the accusations of bodysnatching would start afresh. There are some photos - I really will do a photo post soon. They're not particularly impressive but are focussed on "giving people what they want" as much as "taking the shots I want".

And then finally there is work. It's not bad. Progress is being made. But it's slow. And I'm getting distracted. But I expect renewed vigour and desires to make things happen next week. I just have to survive the weekend first.

I'm sure I had something more interesting to say. Perhaps I did two hours ago when I started writing this. Maybe it was eulogising over Lightroom. Maybe it was enthusing about more LRP to come. Maybe it was about skiing. Maybe I just want to go to bed...

That's how I feel about lots of mine too.

Yaaar - pirate babes on the horizon!

Where?!
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 12th, 2007 09:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
You tell me - you took the brief :-P

Are you going to pop me a CD round when you're done? Obviously no rush.
nyarbaggytep From: nyarbaggytep Date: April 12th, 2007 11:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sure, will do, I'm getting there. There are a lot of pics (mostly shite) to wade through...

I feel a bit guilty now.

No need sweety, it was still wicked fun.

As always you take a *fine* picture. I've a couple of corkers of you.

I thought he was referencing his unrealistic demands for totty...
nyarbaggytep From: nyarbaggytep Date: April 13th, 2007 10:17 am (UTC) (Link)
but it was Juliet's unrealistic demands for totty wasn't it? or is Harry secretly manipulating the whole of the PD crew?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 13th, 2007 10:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Harry always demands totty. Juliet's additional request was merely happy coincidence.

Pirate totty would be appreciated as would corsetted totty or best of all corsetted pirate totty.

Oh come now, Hawk the Slayer has Jack Palance in it! How could it not be good!

The photos are especially nice this time, best of all I didn't even know you'd taken a lot of them - your stalking skills have improved.
ruana1 From: ruana1 Date: April 13th, 2007 12:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Same here. If I had known you were pointing a camera at me in that first one, I'd have raised my head - I'm afraid I find it terribly unflattering.
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 13th, 2007 12:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Do you want me to take it down?
ruana1 From: ruana1 Date: April 14th, 2007 11:22 am (UTC) (Link)
I did give it some thought, but... nah. You apparently see something in it aside from the roll of fat under my chin, which itself has been seen many times by everyone who knows me. Thanks anyway.

The shots with Major Picton are nicer.

See I think that first one is just quite ~interesting~ in a way that the "strolling across the fields" ones aren't. But that's probably the style of photography I like vs the rest of the world.
furzepig From: furzepig Date: April 13th, 2007 02:44 pm (UTC) (Link)

Deadwood.

I wasn't much taken by Deadwood personally, but I'm sure you won't let that stop you. I would instead recommend trying Carnivale in preference, if you haven't already.

On the photos - I haven't found any that I didn't like in your latest batch, but saw more that I liked more in the earlier events. (How's that for cryptic and non-commmittal, eh?) As you're taking requests: I adored the beastie shots and demand to see more beastie shots in future; with or without pirate/non-pirate tottie attached. I don't mind. =)

Now - where's the rest of your post?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 14th, 2007 09:32 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: Deadwood.

I've got Carnivale on DVD - I enjoyed it a lot. Very visually bold even if the story was a bit all over the place and ultimately unsatisfying.

Thankfully they asked. I'm not sure they're showing them off to their best though.
