Some stuff

1. Because I’m basically an idiot, I changed my email address for LJ when they were having all that comment notification trouble, then I promptly forgot that I had done it. If you wrote a comment to me and I haven’t replied...well, that’ll be why. *facepalm* I swear, I am clever sometimes.

2. I finally put the finishing touches to my 60s themed living room. Of course, the TV and computer don’t quite fit that theme but hey, whatever.

Pictures - just scroll past the link if you're not interested )

3. I finally found my college files on the back up of my old hard drive. In one file was the novel that I planned, researched, plotted and wrote three chapters of for my creative writing assignment. I should probably finish that, right? I could be sitting on a best selling novel! *hollow laughter*

4. I would quite like to write some fic, but I've run dry on ideas. Any suggestions?
mymetalphantom: (SRoD...Van Helsing will kick your)
I was watching Dracula AD 1972, which is a movie with no nutritional value whatsoever. Yet, like junk food, there is something oddly satisfying about it.

Anywho, I haven't seen this film in a while so I had completely forgotten that MICHAEL KITCHEN WAS IN IT. *flail*

Cut to save your f'lists (also warning for 70s fashion!) )

I'm gonna go now. I'm tired and thus have been having comma problems in this post. :D
mymetalphantom: (CoF...Baron Frankenstein)
1. So the RBS Six Nations rugby has been eating my weekends. England look set to win. That would be extremely exciting if I wasn’t a Wales supporter. As it is, well...all I’m thinking is ‘at least it won’t be France’.

2. Other than that I’ve been watching more Star Trek: TNG. OMG I totally love it! I always have done, ever since I was a wee kiddie but I definitely love it even more now that I’m grown up enough to appreciate the awesome. I fear my love may eventually spill out into a squee post. As will the item in my next point...

3. I’ve also been watching Hammer films. I can’t get over how much pure joy I can get from watching Hammer films, but there it is. The Frankenstein series, when actually watched as a series, makes absolutely NO SENSE WHATSOEVER. I’m pretty sure Hammer invented retconning, because these films have a tendency to conveniently forget past plot points or just make random shit up when they need to. Also, Baron Frankenstein escapes almost-certain-death so many times that one begins to think he is part cat. And yet, despite this and the eventual silliness that Hammer devolved into in its later years, I completely love them! I need to add Hammer’s Frankenstein to my list of “villains I love more than I probably should”. He’s amazing in a really psychotic, sleazy, borderline sociopathic sort of way.

Also, Brides of Dracula is absolutely one of my most favouritest films ever!

4. I may have come up with A FIC PLOT. Before you faint, I should say it’s not really an involved, complex plot, but there is a story and it’s not just characters snarking talking nonsense to each other or just having sex...although there may be sex and snarking talking nonsense in there as well. I’ve written approximately 3500 words so far. But I’m afraid I’ve fallen into my previous bad habit of writing lots of angst. LOL. Well, I can’t have everything.

5. I have too many WIPs on my computer. I really should try to finish some of them.

6. Do you ever finish a film or book or TV show and get the urge to write fanfic of it, even though there would probably be no interest from anyone other than yourself? I get this all the time. I come up with a great idea for a fic about some obscure film or something, or at least something with no internet fandom, and I think, ‘who the hell would even read that?’ Sometimes I do write it down, just to get it out of my brain, but I think it’s slightly sad that only I would read it...especially since I hate reading my own stuff, so I probably wouldn't read it either.

7. On an unrelated note, all I need to do is buy a bookcase and I have finished decorating my living room. It’s taken me a ridiculously long time but I have my cool 60s theme going on. The only thing holding me back now is lack of funds. Alas.

8. My dentist continues to be handsome. This annoys me.

TL;DR I have too much time on my hands. Way, way too much time. And yet, I do nothing productive with it.
