Corrosive Shame

London, Southampton, Carnivale and Ski Hats
I've clearly not been in London for too long. The tube this morning was not-unexpectedly cosy but my abject horror was perhaps an overreaction.

In other news, I went to my German class last night after missing many weeks (and indeed having been crossed off the register). It's good fun, if very slow paced - I'm sure the week I didn't go but saw Rammstein instead I learned much more. Still, I have reinforced my ability to ask where the Krankenhaus is on any skiing trip to the German speaking Alps (like the one next week!).

I've also managed to lose my hat. Again. Every skiing holiday I panic, buy a new hat, then lose it. I guess I'll have to budget for it like "ski pass" and "food". Currently I'm thinking about Whistler next year for a fortnight which is quite expensive, but is flying scheduled rather than crappy-charter. In my post-Excel Airways state it even seems worth it. I might have to visit Ellis Brigham and avoid spending lots of money on new ski wear. Since joining the Ski Club of Great Britain I have the urge to buy a helmet, transciever, designer ski wear and bitch about snowboarders.

So, I'm in London today, back tonight, then Southampton tomorrow night, then London Thursday and Friday. Must pack at some point, and watch the last DVD of Carnivale which, while suffering from Twin Peaks-esque "We're not sure what this means, but we'll put it in the script now then rationalise later" I'm finding strangely engaging. Self-flagellation, paedophilia, sex, drugs and dead fish - how in heaven's name did any US network agree to make this?

Today I am mostly assessing PR companies. I dislike PR companies. I expect to spend much time surfing the net instead.

Entertain me, and better still use a picture I've taken of you on your LJ userinfo. There are three who do so at the moment and I'm hoping to get more cheap web-hits as time goes on.

I always look fat in your photos.

Previously you won points for having a photo I took as an icon.

And I blame you for Carnivale. If you want to borrow the DVD box to rip/rewatch - let me know.

Is the Diogenes photo you? I always thought that one was irdm. Live and learn.

I look fat in nearly all of your photos.

I wouldn't mind a borrow, actually. I've been saving Season 2 eps for a big watchathon.

The one I took while extremely drunk of you at your desk. You don't seem to be using it currently.

Aaaah that one. Yes, fair play that was a cracking photo.

I'm rejigging all of my icons on a regular basis at the moment, and it seems appropriate given mood and circumstance not to use my own face.

A comment, not a criticism! Have you watched any of Carnivale S2? I had my dates mixed up and didn't realise they were showing it yet.
From: pax_draconis Date: March 8th, 2005 10:38 am (UTC) (Link)
Watched the first four, got the first eight; they're coming available on Mondays. Not sure why I stopped watching them, because it's been really rather good - I'm just "saving them up" for a rainy day.

I'm saving them likewise for a big glut watch. It might just be a "download culture" thing but I cannot be bothered watching in an episodic format when I can just sit down and watch a load of them in one go. They benefit from cumulative effect I reckons.

Mm. That said, I devour Lost episode by episode as it arrives, religiously. Six week wait for the last six episodes now, because they're doing that very American "recap second half of the season before playing the season end" thing that used to so disrupt Babylon 5.

I'm not sure about all of those, but looking did remind me how nice Helen's shoot turned out.

Must do some more studio stuff. After ski season...

Might you be up for further collaboration?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: March 8th, 2005 01:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Definitely! It's just about where, when and who :-)
From: ikkleblacktruck Date: March 8th, 2005 11:20 am (UTC) (Link)
You're in London as much as mimeticgel and on much the same days! Carnivale is showing on FX289, a recent addition to NTL, has Telewest not picked it up yet? It also shows newer JAG than Hallmark. Hurrah!

Get Kazaa etc. on the case, or I'll lend the DVDs at some point :-)
