Art: A Hole in the Ground; G

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Recently I took a foray into producing art for another fandom. This is apparently Back to Middle-earth Month, and the Live Journal community B2MeM has a festival to celebrate. I found a prompt I liked and produced a smial or Hobbit hole. It was fun to do. I was in a bit of a funk, but drawing this helped pull me out. Who could resist such a homely little house, after all. ;D

Hagetaka music video

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

This is a music fanvid I found on YouTube that's basically an overview of Episode 1 of Hagetaka, set to the Foo Fighters' "Best of You". I posted the link before during my initial Hagetaka squee-fest, but I thought it might make more sense now for anyone who's read the recap. Even if you can't find a copy of the actual episode, this at least introduces the main characters and does a good job of capturing the mood of the show.

For those who are interested, the sequence of events/scenes in the video is as follows:


Hagetaka: Episode 1 Recap

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

As you may recall, I was obsessing about the Hagetaka J-drama awhile back. Well, I'm still obsessed and still have Hagetaka plot bunnies eating my brain, so I thought I'd post some detailed episode recaps (along with some notes and commentary I made) here partially so I can use them as references, and partly so that people who haven't seen the drama can at least have a summary of the canon story if I ever do get around to writing fanfic.

(I should be posting recaps for Episodes 2 and 3 soon, but still need to re-watch Episodes 4-6. That breaks up nicely, though since there's a timeskip of several years between episodes 3 and 4, and 4-6 cover a separate story arc.)

Harry's No Good, Yet Perfect Day

DIG!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
How did I not know there was a show starring Jason Isaacs, about ancient religious rituals, involving foot chases through antique cities and mystical artifacts???
And that he has an antagonistic but hot Israeli detective partner?

And it even stars a plucky U Penn Archeologist! Has anyone told [personal profile] r_grayjoy ?? (well, not exactly the star.... more like the spirit of the show)

That's Dig, on USA network, and I am really loving it so far (thru Ep 02). The mytho-theology is a bit far fetched at times, but a lot of it is based on real details, like the Red Heifer and the Breastplate.

I love the role of place in this show. Jerusalem is a character, a labyrinth of magic and mystery. and the other players around the globe, their location is significant as well. You've got to love Red in her Norweigian baby blanket! or creepy-cute Josh experiencing the desert sky.

Any other waters out there?


Meme: 50 Questions

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
[dreamwidth.org profile] dine

1. What's your favorite candle scent?
Strawberry, citrus or lavender, but I don't burn many candles.

2. What female celebrity do you wish was your sister?
Angelina Jolie.

3. What male celebrity do you wish was your brother?
George Takei.

4. How old do you think you'll be when you get married?
NA - I have no plans to marry.

5. Do you know a hoarder?
I know several people who could be considered hoarders.

6. Can you do a split?
Never.

7. How old were you when you learned how to ride a bike?
I never learned.

8. How many oceans have you swum in?
Two or three?

9. How many countries (other than your homeland) have you been to?
Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Portugal, France, Italy, Egypt, and the Netherlands. So, eight.

10. Is anyone in your family in the army?
Not now, but my father and mother both served, as did several uncles and aunts.

11. What would you name your daughter if you had one?
I like unique names, historical figures, and naming children after virtues and family members (and also vicious parental cruelty, apparently) so the poor kid would end up with something like Aethelfrida Equality Grace.

12. What would you name your son if you had one?
Something equally terrible, like Caomh Tolerance David. It's a good thing I don't plan on having kids.

13. What's the worst grade you got on a test?
A 'fail'.

14. What was your favorite TV show when you were a child?
Hmmm... The Magic Roundabout? Mr Benn? Star Trek? Mutant Ninja Turtles? Depends what age you're talking about.

15. What did you dress up as on Halloween when you were eight?
I didn't. Costumes at Halloween were still a strange American thing back then, unknown in my area. The closest I got to dressing up was putting on layers to go out and ask people for penny for the Guy.

16. Have you read any of the Harry Potter, Hunger Games or Twilight series?
All of Harry Potter, none of Twilight or the Hunger Games.

17. Would you rather have an American accent or a British accent?
I already *have* a British one, and I'm keeping it.

18. Did your mother go to university?
No, I was the first in my family to go to university.

19. Are your grandparents still married?
They're all dead, but they were all married at the time.

20. Have you ever taken karate lessons?
Yes.

21. Do you know who Kermit the frog is?
Yes. I prefer Miss Piggy.

22. What's the first amusement park you've been to?
Chessington Zoo, which is just round the corner; I can hear the noise on quiet nights. Its now called Chessington World of Adventures, and has got rid of most of the animals, which is a relief; it was a small, depressing zoo when I was a kid.

23. What language, besides your native language, would you like to be fluent in?
Lots. Arabic and Russian. Chinese. Japanese. German, Italian, Dutch. Spanish.

24. Do you spell the color as grey or gray?
Grey.

25. Is your father bald?
No.

26. Do you know triplets?
No.

27. Do you prefer Titanic or The Notebook?
No idea; I've never watched The Notebook. I didn't like Titanic, though.

28. Have you ever had Indian food?
Yes. I love Dopiaza, Jalfrezi, Tandoori, Rogan Josh, and things like that. I don't like poppadums or samosas so much.

29. What's the name of your favorite restaurant?
I don't have one? English cafes for breakfast or lunch on cold days, anywhere that serves a good salad or light vegetarian in summer. Chinese or Indian for dinners, Mexican or Spanish tapas for sharing in groups.

30. Have you ever been to Olive Garden?
No; I've only heard of it in US-based fic. I don't think we have that in the UK. I'm not sure we have it in Europe.

31. Do you belong to any warehouse stores (Costco, BJ's, etc.)?
Matalan.

32. What would your parents have named you if you were the opposite gender?
I was named after the midwife who saved my life, so I'd probably have got the same name, as a very unusual unisex name, or a masculine variant of her surname.

33. If you have a nickname, what is it?
My name has never been easy to turn into a nickname, so I suppose zellieh is my nickname now.

34. Who's your favorite person in the world?
My Dad.

35. Would you rather live in a rural area or in the suburbs?
Suburbs.

36. Can you whistle?
Yes, but not well.

37. Do you sleep with a nightlight?
No.

38. Do you eat breakfast every morning?
Most days, but not always at breakfast time.

39. Do you take any pills or medication daily?
Yes.

40. What medical conditions do you have?
Anxiety and depression, and body dysmorphic disorder.

41. How many times have you been to the hospital?
Several times as a child, but only three or four times as an adult.

42. Have you ever seen Finding Nemo?
Once or twice on TV, I think.

43. Where do you buy your jeans?
Charity shops, mostly.

44. What's the last compliment you got?
My hair (very long, unusual colour). An artist introduced herself just to say how beautiful the colour was. (This was a sunny day; my hair looks boring brown on grey days.)

45. Do you usually remember your dreams in the morning?
Hardly ever.

46. What flavor tea do you enjoy?
Peppermint or Whittards Spiced Chai.

47. How many pairs of shoes do you currently own?
Maybe fifteen? Twenty if you count boots.

48. What religion will you raise your children to practice?
Athiesm, Humanism; liberal Unitarian Universalist, if I had to go to a church of some sort.

49. How old were you when you found out that Santa wasn't real?
Five or six, maybe? The first time my parents took me to a fake Santa's Grotto to sit on a fake Santa's knee, and it smelled of mould, sweat, and whisky. It was a pretty clear thought process: Santa is magic; this doesn't smell/look/feel magical = this isn't Santa; Santa isn't real. Hilariously, I kept pretending for several years after that because I didn't want to ruin my parents' fun.

50. Why do you still have a journal here, considering everyone else is on Facebook?
Because I despise Facebook, and I like to keep my fannish things with fannish people who understand my fannishness, and away from random old school friends and family members who might be easily confused or upset.
