What ho!

Dear people on the internet whom I have neglected so terribly,
I can't believe it's been nearly five months since I updated this place. I really do miss this and now as it's gray and cold over here I'll hopefully return more often. Fandomwise lots of things are going on what with me finally having caught up with all the episodes of the new doctor and the new Sherlock Holmes film being out but what I really miss is you guys. But it has been my fault of course, this new city has swallowed me.
London is as crazy as you'd think it would be but it's also kind of sweet and cosy from time to time.

And so I´ve come to the conclusion...

I haven´t been to the cinema in weeks. The Boat that Rocked (mediocre but Emma Thompson and Ken Branagh) and Gran Torino(Clint Eastwood hilariously wonderful and tragic) were the last films I saw. I need a good recommendation though I´ve heard great things about Let the Right one In.
This Obama paper is driving me nuts. I need people to look over it because me+scientific English=no good.
And now on top of it all, I have to buy a new desktop Mac. It sure needs to be a G5 for all the video editing stuff to work and now I have to google my way through the different kinds of graphic cards that support at least three monitors and openGL 2.0 Can I please have cheap computer?!
Blergh.
But fandom makes me happy at the moment though it´s distracting as hell.
I´ve turned off LoudTwitter on LJ because it made so apparent that I don´t update my journal daily and it really looks ugly. I´m @cadeira if you want to follow me and need to know what I have for dinner.
Does someone of you need Dreamwidth invitation codes? Some were sent to me today.

Charity Drive

Okay, so the [livejournal.com profile] hl_bday_drive for Save the Children is on and I offer a podfic for the Creations for Donations project. Any donation over $20 and I´ll record a podfic of your choice.
For the rules and in case you´d like to take part, you might want to look at the page of The Hugh Laurie Birthday Charity Drive

Dear f-list, it would be great if you could join into the drive with all your creative might an also spread the word! This is not a House-fandom-only drive, all fandoms are invited.
My thread is here: http://community.livejournal.com/hl_bday_drive/426.html?thread=1194#t1194

*bzzzzz*

My head is buzzing and whirring like a... whirring buzz. And I still manage to let myself be distracted by Twitter. But it´s a lovely technology. I wish more RL people I know would use it.
I´ve also shugged out 8 pages of my Obama paper in three days which doesn´t sound so much but it really feels like an accomplishment seeing as I have trying to avoid it for three months and I won´t be able to keep the dealine... which would have been today.
One younger female prof is actually controling whether we´ve read our texts via test exams. Like in school. If it wasn´t so annoying I´d laugh. Any other than that, everything´s fine.
Dollhouse keeps to be getting better and better. I´m at episode 9 now and get more and more fascinated by every passing minute.
House finale for me is this evening with pizza and wine.
Charity project looks good, seems like we´re starting today or tomorrow. We will set up an Creations for Donations place so if you would like to participate just look out for the communities. We´ll posting an announcement soon.

This is just my tinker placeholder post. Never mind.

a project and a meme

The director of the play I took part in last summer asked me if I wanted to be his assistant for his next play again. Wheee!
And I still have this term paper to write but I´ll probably ask for more time seeing as I have had this other slightly monstrous project and very inconveniently both deadlines are nearly at the same day. If you like to see what that´s about you can look under the cut.
Charity like whoa. )
I also did a meme. Look!

Can I give you Poetry Month Contribution, too?


April Rain Song

by Langston Hughes

Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.

The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night—

And I love the rain.



Reading through some of these wonderful works I wonder why we don´t cherish the languages we inhabit more.

Food post with crispy stuff in it.

I don´t know if anyone of you actually cares but WHEEEEEE! All Beatles albums will be re-released digitally remastered. My chance to get those LPs I don´t have yet.

There´s more... with food... under the cut...

Me + Ikea + new wok equals this )

Damn.

Damn! I just read the *asdaflkjh* biggest spoiler (which I´m not going to elaborate on of course!) for one of the next House episodes by accident. I could kick myself. It wasn´t here on LJ, so it came kinda unexpected. I´ll try brainwashing.

Anyway at least I saw a great video of how the House crew was sent into April, 1st.

For Sale, For Charity

That´s right. For I missed the deadline to offer myself at Sweet Charity last time, it´s going to be my first time. I´ll offer two podfics and can´t wait to see whether actually anyone cares to bid on me.
I´ve already found one or two things I´d love to bid on myself but I´m a bit tight so I´ll have to settle on one item. Can´t wait to see what else is going to pop up in the offer as there are three more days to sign up for sale.
Their charity is RAINN.

Sell out: 21st Mar 2009 - 28th Mar 2009
Auction: 28th Mar 2009 - 1st Apr 2009

*suppressing the need to shout BRAINZZ*

Is it a coincidence that my second-favorite twitterer and overall brainy and lovely ( in a fluffy, moist kind of a way) writer Stephen Fry comments on the death of former Big Brother inhabitant Jade and just one day before I got around starting to watch Dead Set? Here´s a trailer.
I loaded tons of stuff from the assistant director´s DVD collection onto my computer when we were shooting that mystery series two weeks ago. Among those films and series were some English productions, most notably "Lost in Austen" about a girl who gets sucked into the world of Jane Austen and the 2008 Zombie mini-series "Dead Set" which centers around some of the survivors of a zombie rampage. It´s wickedly funny as the set that´s dead is the British Big Brother house (of course social and TV critique ensues) but it´s also a quite gory little series which entertains me to no end.
That said and also to ease the pain of other impatient souls: German amazon buyer will probably have to wait till middle of June until Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will be shipped. How cruel is that?
