boredom...

quiz, stolen from an old acquaintance...

Collapse )

that's it...

oh, wait, it's not. i remembered something i was going to post yesterday... i was watching one of the 1am editions of "trisha" on itv1. it was about people who were determined to be famous in one way or another. the one that was on when i happened to tune in was scary - a lady who was completely in love with gareth gates, and was adamant that one day she was going to meet him and marry him. i mean, really. she was serious about this. they eventually established that something must have happened in her life, crisis-wise, around about the same time gareth gates was on pop idol, and that she had to get over that in order to get over him - she agreed, but didn't seem to want to get over him.

anyway, i was sitting there watching, getting very scared, and being very thankful that i at least have some modicum of common sense left. i may be completely infatuated with y-k-w, but at least i'm not insane. i do, at least, realise that my infatuation is ultimately pointless and precisely that - an infatuation - and i certainly don't want his babies ;) being his bestest friend ever would be nice. but i'm not insane. nope. merely slightly mad at the moment, but it'll pass.

i think what scares me more is that the woman didn't realise she was a complete nutter. i mean, couldn't she see how crazy she was? what kind of mentality doesn't even realise that hero-worship is just frelling hero-worship? it's never going to happen. the boy is a pop star. you are old enough to be his mother.

okay, more a rant on society in general... and being a norma/joe shipper i can't complain about the being-old-enough-to-be-his-mother thing, although i deliberatly worked out their age gap as 15 years for a reason ;)

geez...

bbc2 and buffy: "dead things"

okay, i had a feeling they'd cut a lot, but this is ridiculous. so far, we've lost:

- the beginning of the conversation between buffy and spike under-the-rug (basically all the bits with spike being, well, spike.) i'm also pretty sure they cut the "do you trust me?" exchange, but i don't remember...

- the katrina/warren bit when the spell actually wears off... but that i can actually understand.

- the end of the bit up on the balcony. again, fair enough... except by the time "beneath you" airs (in, oh, 15 years...) spike's line about going at it again on the balcony won't make any sense in the slightest except to those with vivid imaginations.

- the entire sodding dream sequence! i love that bit! that's the entire reason i love this episode! there's only about 2 shots in that which are actually cut-worthy...

- spike's "balls..." when they find the body... it's nothing with just the expression...

- the entire of buffy beating him half to death. at least sky one left in some of the punches... one minute he's fine, the next he's got a black eye and a swollen lip. nice editing...

okay, you know what? sooner or later, they have to realise that shows like buffy and farscape are not supposed to be on at 6.45pm. *sigh* most of the cuts i can understand, but this one was edited with a blunt hacksaw. although probably only because i know what they missed out...

(and also, oh, the irony of 'the tara thing' at the end of the season. she was the only one who could have helped with all the emotional angst, i think...)
