Random - Trees

(no subject)

Dear Channel 4,

please to be showing the rest of season 2 of Ugly Betty now? You've been leaving us hanging for months.

If you do not comply with my request, I shall be forced to throw a major hissy fit and launch a grenade through your window. If this does not persuade you, be prepared for me to go up there and kick yo' asses.

Yours in unending frustration,


liek, srsly - this is getting beyond a joke. I don't frelling care about Dirty Sexy Money or whatever the hell it's called. Placating me with a new series of Derren Brown's Trick of Treat is not going to work, either, and don't think distracting me with Peep Show will make me forget that you promised the rest of this season in January AND April respectively.

I don't have much energy for fandom these days, so holding out on me with the one I actually manage to latch onto is UNFAIR and CRUEL.


*breathe* Spoilers on daniel_betty are not good for me, clearly. It's turning into the kind of fandom I need to watch on my own, in a hermetically sealed room, so I don't disturb other people... ;) But seriously, some of the stuff that's coming? SO GOOD.

*beats Channel 4 to death with blunt objects*

Enough about that. It's only telly, after all. :P

In other news, the opera stuff for choir is coming together quite nicely, although I hope I don't end up sitting next to either of people in the concert who I do in rehearsal. On one side is off-pitch vibrato woman, and on the other is too-loud-occasionally-wrong person and they're both really annoying...

Thankfully, the Italian is now coming together, and the Russian - whilst not as straightforward as originally thought - is starting to sound okay as well. The others are in English and/or American, so not as bad, although I wouldn't have minded singing Carmen in French... the translations are always a bit twee. I mean, the blokes have to sing this at one point:

We've been waiting for no-one but you
You're so lovely, be nice to us, do!

Not very masculine. ;) It would be nice to work through the Porgy & Bess stuff in order, though, as we've rehearsed it in a random order and I have no idea how it's meant to sound in context.

Sooo... yeah. I should get on with this letter of instruction, really... and I really need some sort of telly-related icon...
