Quick! Give me your ~essential~ movies. Particularly "iconic" ones, or Disney movies. Don't worry about if I've seen it or not; I probably haven't. Seriously. This is why I'm asking y'all. I know nothing of movies. The extent of my experience is films based off comic books and Pixar. AND STAR WARS. Yes. I have seen it! My childhood was spent voraciously devouring the whole Expanded Universe after watching the original trilogy.
I'm looking at having a movie marathon of all the things I've put off watching over the next weekend. I've already got Mulan ready to go because several people have informed me that it and Aladdin are the best, along with Beauty and The Beast. Also looking at the Die Hard movies, because, seriously, everything I love in a movie. because disney and die hard go so. well. together

So, yeah. Hit me with your best shot.

Also I think my emotions may be on the fritz. The really sweet video of a guy proposing through memes made me cry, and now I'm sniffling along to Matt Kearney. His music makes me feel things, but, um, not usually sad things.


HEY GUYS GUYS GUY WHITE COLLAR TONIGHT \o/ We have our evening all planned around it. And you know what, as much as I love having "my" shows that nobody else watches, it's nice for there to be another show(after Stargate) that we all watch and enjoy(all of us being me, mum, the brother, and even dad when he can hear/see/understand what's going on).
Though, tbh, I'm not sure if I can pull the brother away from Star Trek: Online long enough to actually watch the episode. Apparently it went free today. We won't be seeing him again any time real soon, but, hey, at least it shuts him up pretty effectively, and that's always a consideration. Unless, of course, he insists on filling me in on little details that I can actually live without knowing. Sometimes I regret getting him into Star Trek.

How fast are y'all at typing? Are you more of a touch-typist or do you have to look at what you're doing or are you just more of a hunt-n-peck kinda person?

I've always assumed that people who use the internet competently(i.e. competent enough to have a functioning LJ, lol) are pretty good typists, but someone pointed out to me that a lot of people these days can't type without watching their hands.

Personally I type a good solid 60wpm on Mavis Beacon without looking, but I developed that from when I was a kid and I'd spend hours and hours goofing off with writing and playing with HTML while watching what I was doing, so as time passed, I just muscle-memorized which letters were which, and it's stuck.

Random factlet; my mum says she could type 90wpm on the old-fashioned typewriters back in the day(since she was a medical transcriptionist, this was kinda necessary), which has me bowing in awe, because while those typewriters are fun as heck to use, they're a lot harder than computer keyboards to deal with.


Also! I wrote 1500 words of possibly incoherent fic about Lisa stumbling into Sam and Dean's next hunt and walking away...unchanged. Because someone told me it needed to be written. Maybe I'm finally catching that writing disease where it becomes hard to write less than 500w? Lord knows it's about time.
(For those who don't know; back when I was doing a ton of stuff in Merlin fandom, I often bemoaned the fact that I couldn't seem to write anything over a thousand words to save my life)

thoughts?

re: scripts/deleted scenes and what is the word-of-God-canon material. If it was in the original draft, is it canon? What about later drafts? What about deleted scenes? Are the only things canon those we see onscreen as a part of the episode/movie itself? What about retconning; does it count if it's subtle and sensible, and not when it's whacky and odd? Or how about things stated during interviews/cons? Is it more canon if a writer says it vs. a producer vs. and actor(in this case, talking about a character)? What if the writers make a mistake early on and then fix it later in canon and interviews; is the original true, or is what they fixed it as the canon?

I've always been pretty liberal with what I consider canon, including deleted scenes and scenes that were in the filming drafts but got dropped for time or whatever, as well as stuff explicitly stated by writers/producers during interviews. Heck, I even consider most tie-ins canon. And I have no problem with tasteful retconning, most of the time. But I've noticed that a lot of fandom is very, very, very picky about what is canon and what isn't, to the point of discrediting and ignoring retcons and even things the writers themselves say was supposed to happen(I remember the crazy that went down when Joe Mallozzi stated that the writers had planned on a John and Teyla relationship, but hadn't gotten the chance to play it out).

So does most of this stem from fanatical fans who want to believe what they think is right, or are people too burned off trusting the people who create their shows?
IDK. Offer your thoughts. Is defining canon more of a show-by-show, fandom-by-fandom kinda thing?


*This post is brought to you by my wandering brain, How long Sam spent at Standford, and the script for Merlin 4x03. You're welcome.

Tor

I was looking at it earlier, and now I'm considering downloading and installing it. I've read quite a bit on the site itself, but I still feel like I don't know much about it. So, are there any peeps on my flist who have/do use it? What are the pros vs. cons? Is it worth it?


(Hi guys! How are you? <3 I'm not dead \o/ Unlike LJ's been, the past few days...:/)

I asked this over at [livejournal.com profile] merlin_finders, but I figure some of y'all on my flist might know where I could find these...so, because I'm lazy, the c+p from my post over there.

I've searched everywhere I can think of to find this picture, with no luck, and so I was hoping one of you lovely people might be able to help. It's a promotional image, with Arthur in chainmail with his sword leaning on his shoulder, and he's smiling. Any help with that is amazing! <3

And another general request; I'm looking for any pics of Arthur or Bradley smiling. High quality is preferred, but anything is super awesome. The only thing I don't want is pictures with Bradley's scruff, but otherwise I'm looking for anything. Thank you so much for anyone who can help with either of these! :)

Screencaps are more than welcome, as well.

I'm finally getting around to trying to make a manip...and for the life of me I can't find a good pic of Arthur or Bradley smiling! It's pretty sad...all the promo images of Arthur are him looking ~tough, and Bradley doesn't go to many events like Angel, so that's a no-go...arg. Yeah. Aside from not being able to find a good pic for Arthur, it's starting to look pretty dang good, I think. For a first try, that is.
Anywhos! If you can help, it's great, if you can't I still love you :D
