dude. things you realise when you're meant to be working...

thing one: (although i technically realised this one at some point last year) it is a credit to catatonia's inimitable genius that "equally cursed and blessed", well, is. listen to it: the first half is bangy and shouty and bitter, the second half is floaty and light and vocally lovely (with only a hint of bitterness.) it's not a perfect theory, but even the inlay booklet is laid out like it, and i knew there had to be a reason...

thing two: in relation to the above: dazed, beautiful and bruised is a fantastic song. it's going in the buffyfic as a chapter, possibly the first one. Collapse )

whee!

and, in other news, i just watched bruce almighty. 'twas good. i was especially amused by the casting of morgan freeman as god. jim carrey continues to be completely nuts, but hey, someone has to be...

now i shall construct my long post on Being A Shipper, which i came up with at 3am whilst trying to sleep...

On being a shipper (long post; 1/?)

This is something I was thinking about at about three o'clock this morning, whilst trying to get to sleep (despite being tired, oh, six hours earlier...) but I thought I'd share it. We all know (and if we don't, where have we been, pray?) that I'm a shipper of the highest order. I am, in fact, a Professional, except I don't get paid. If, however, I could earn a pound for every 'ship I've managed to predict before it happened or was obviously going to happen, I would be a very rich lady.

So. This post is going to be long, and in it, I shall attempt to explain, for no reason at all other than I feel like it, what couples I ship for (in the main, anyway; I'll exclude the various movie ones because they're ultimately pointless, with a few exceptions as you'll see...), when I did, and why, and any associated rants. But I'll try to keep the rants short. :)

Feel free to comment/critique/add your own. It's a free-for-all. I'd appreciate feedback on my ramblings, if only to commend my efforts. :)

There was going to be more of this, but I can no longer type, so will finish it tomorrow. Or probably not tomorrow, because I have an essay to start. Perhaps after essayness. Anyway. There will be much more. I have many fandoms still to do...
