This is a brilliant story. I've heard a lot of cool things about Alice Cooper over the years. A coworker's nephew had a band that opened for Alice Cooper in some times ago and had a lot of good things to say about him. Though I don't like his music much, I really do consider myself to be a fan of his.

My aunt who passed away last year would have loved this story. She practically worshiped Elvis.

I notice that Phill Jupitus has lost weight. As a very fat bird, I hate it when someone utters the phrases "you look good" and "you've lost weight" within an hour of each other, because it always makes me wonder how horrible I looked before. From the first time I saw him on QI six years ago, I've thought Phill was a fucking doll, but now I have to take back the sentiment I just expressed about "you look good" and "you lost weight," because as cute as I've always thought he was, I think he's a smidgen cuter now. (Just a little.) I'm liking the grey hair and stubble, too.

You know when you get a fest assignment, and go through the prompts and cast your mind (and Google) about for ideas, and then suddenly you KNOW exactly what you're going to do? And if you can pull it off, it's going to be the best thing you ever did?

And then you think about the research you're going to have to do to make it good, and you start laughing loudly enough to wake the neighbors?

Yeah. Just happened.

*plants face in hands to stifle giggles*
keladry_lupin: (LOL (Martin))
I shouldn't like this, because this reminds me too much of Jimbo harassing me when we were kids. But I LOL every time.

I finally figured out why I've been smiling so much lately. Every time I turn on my computer at home or minimize all the windows, I gurgle with laughter when I see this funny face:


So what's on your desktops?

A bunch of us were outside the Mysterium when we heard the Princes' fanfare through one of the side doors. With no explanation, Lee, aka Rapunzel's Prince, and went from zero to sixty in half a second to get to the stage door. We laughed, but we were impressed; he's fast! He returned a moment later, looking disgruntled, and said, "Every time I hear that music, I think I'm late for an entrance. It's automatic, even though I know I don't go on for another five minutes."

I said, "Pavlov's Prince!"

I laughed out loud when I read this one yesterday and laughed again when I reread it tonight. Go read it and laugh:

Spot the Loony by [ profile] gardnerhill
Rating: PG (language)
Characters: BBC Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Sally Donovan
Summary: The title is from a Monty Python sketch.
Warnings: Cop mouth. Some abuse of an invasive non-native species.
Word Count: 300

I love that the author took a throwaway line from The Great Game and turned it into this. Poor Sally!

And I'm happy dancing tonight because an LJ user asked if Danny Boyle's Frankenstein would be released on DVD. Last I'd heard, the answer was no, but that's changed to a probably. It may take some time, but I will be all over it if this happens.

This cat is like me: he knows how to swear in another language, but that's about it.

I've been giggling over this one for the last several minutes, so I'm sharing it with you guys:

Title: The Christmas Box
Author: [ profile] carenejeans
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: G
Warnings: Fruitcake
Word count: 1,670
Summary: "It is a singular thing, but I find that a concentrated atmosphere helps a concentration of thought. I have not pushed it to the length of getting into a box to think, but that is the logical outcome of my convictions." -- Sherlock Holmes, in "The Hound of the Baskervilles"

I love that the thought even occurs to John in the first place. I love that he goes through with the idea. And I love that Sherlock has it figured out by the time he gets home and acts accordingly:

I spent hours last night looking at photos of Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Rupert Graves for a Sherlock fanart. In which I ramble on FAR too long about cute boys. )

*sighs happily* Looking for just the right photos of these guys is a tough job, but someone's gotta do it.

Making up for the last post, because no Tuesday is ever a total loss.

I went into the break room and saw CJ and JT sitting at the table. CJ said, "We didn't see you at the Academy Awards."

Me: [after a moment of WTF] I haven't made a movie in fifteen years.

CJ: [startled] Seriously?

Me: Well, I was an extra, and it was just a few gigs during one summer break, but there are two things where you can see my face.

CJ: Cool. Are you acting now at your theater?

Me: The Mysterium? No, but I'm stage crew for The Crucible.

CJ: [brightly] Oh, you've been promoted!
keladry_lupin: (Awesome (Bill))
I love the stories that I find at the Sherlock comms I follow, but what do I love just a teeny bit more than that? The art. I'm becoming slightly obsessed with angrybeige's comics among others, but that's an art rec for another day when I'm bored and watching the clock. The comics make no sense at all, except they totally do, and they're funny in the most insane way possible.

Go Away, He's Angsting.

What about Anchovies?

Smart Fish.

Don't Let the Cuddly Jumper Fool You.

So I went to and found this.

It's too big to be a desktop background, and Mom doesn't approve of slash, but I am so saving this. Forever.

Edit: Just realized Benedict looks vaguely like an ex boyfriend. (Enough that they could be brothers. And Hugh Laurie could actually be their dad!) Now I like him a tiny bit less. Or at least, I like Martin a little more.

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday (or summer solstice holiday, depending upon your geographical location), practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all . . .

and a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2011, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great (not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country or is the only "AMERICA" in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform, operating system, or groupware package, or sexual preference of the wishee.

(By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.)

Edit: BTW, I didn't write this. Dad forwarded it to me in an e-mail, and it was too good not to share.

I just read this in the Harvard Health Letter, December 2010 issue, page six. The quote is from an interview with Shelley Carson, a Harvard psychologist and author of Your Creative Brain.

Q: Can you be happy and creative?

A: Happy and creative, yes. But contentment--it's the enemy of creativity. The creative mind is a hungry mind, a thirsty mind, not a satiated mind. It wants more.

I've suspected this about myself for the last several months, so it's nice to have it confirmed. Even if it's explaining why I've squeezed out a grand total of 3,000 words over the last year. Hmph.

I'm not dumping Phil just to get my writing mojo back, though. I know very well that he'll start to bug me eventually (if he sticks around long enough), and then writing will be my consolation once more.
keladry_lupin: (Smile (Hugh))
Thanks for all the laughs, Alex. And thanks to [ profile] lady_rhian for sharing the link this morning so I knew it was up.

I haven't laughed this hard since I saw Mrs Hughes' video for the first time.
