is that, to most in the social networking line of work, creating interconnected-ness is desirable, because it's all about being seen and stuff, catering to that insatiable vibe. Moar moar moar. Meaning, LJ is just riding the same wave everyone else on on the intarwebs is. Unfortunately, fandom swims upstream.
Personally, I just can't muster up the proper amount of indignation. Sadly, I think I'm too lazy. lol. Or maybe I'm too zen. All things, good and bad, eventually pass. It's all a matter of degree. (And, you know, it's like getting mad a snake for being a snake). I x-post from DW, and that's about all I can do.
is a lot of fun, and I truly enjoy watching it. I've motored through season 1 and 2, just started season 3. As enjoyable as it is, however, I find that all the episodes rather blend together. The overall arc of Michael getting to the bottom of his burn notice is clear and I can follow that very well, but all the rest of it? The clients and the jobs and all that? Are entertaining but interchangeable. Not that this is a bad thing. It's the same with Leverage
. Makes the show a candy snack, which is good. Especially when you actually have good actors and decent writing.
Also, they make Miami look so shiny.
I checked out an audio book for Emma
from the library and fell in love with it all over again. haha. It's so *delightful*. I own the Gweneth Paltrow film, but then had to netflix the Kate Beckingsale version, which has it's own charms, not least of which is Mark Strong as Mr. Knightley. (OMG LOVE). I have the most recent version waiting for me -- Romala Garai as Emma and Jonny Lee Miller as Mr. Knightley (JLM also played Edmund Bertrum in the theatrical Mansfield Park
. I find JLM a bit too... pretty and delicate looking for my leading men, but we'll see).
~~~( I saw Inception )
I recently finished listening to the audiobooks version of Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go
, which I highly recommend.
It's also about to be released as a film (sometime in Sept.) staring Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, and Andrew Garfield. ( Read more... )
Incidentally, I just realized that Carey Mulligan played Kitty Bennet in the recent 2005 film version of Pride and Prejudice
. I mean, I knew Carey Mulligan as Sally Sparrow on DW for years now, and of course I know she's been very fortunate in her career of late, but I TOTALLY had no clue ALL THIS TIME that she was also Kitty Bennet. You guys, you don't understand how many times I have watched that film! LOTS. And I never put two and two together.
She was a tad plumper back then. Which is saying something because she's rail thin now.
This makes 2 Bennet sisters who have appeared on DW. The other is Miss Evangilista who was Mary Bennet. And interestingly enough, both were Moffat episodes.... hm. Of course, I seriously doubt Jenna Malone will appear on DW, and it'd be pretty surprising of Keira Knightley ever did.
