Late to the party perhaps, but I just watched The King's Speech. Such a great movie. As in, it was almost two hours long but I never wanted it to end. I genuinely laughed and I actually teared up a bit. I've adored Colin Firth for years, and I love movies like St. Trinian's and Bridget Jones's Diary, but I love being reminded of just how great an actor he is. If you haven't been able to watch it yet, do yourself a favor and go see it! You won't be disappointed.

Aaaaaand, Ikuta Toma was recently awarded Best New Artist at the 53rd Blue Ribbon Awards! I'm still waiting on subs for Ningen Shikkaku and Hanamizuki, but at least I've been able to watch Seaside Motel :D

I love it when my boys get the recognition they deserve ♥

Day 3 )

PS: DON'T FORGET, IF YOU WANT A CARD, MY POST IS HERE! I'm going to work on them this weekend and then hopefully send them off Monday, so last chance!!

I woke up at about 4:30am this morning from a horrible dream and then proceeded to cry for I don't know how long. Makes it very difficult to go back to sleep :/

I requested a ticket for Matt's visit to The Late, Late Show as soon as I heard, which I thought was soon enough, but my status has just gone from 'requested' to 'sold out' and I am quite bummed right now.

*le sigh*

At least my Doctor Who and Sherlock DVDs have shipped. Expected date of arrival: November 12th! (Ryan's birthday)

I also redyed my hair. I'm a brunette once again! For the first time in YEARS my hair actually matches my eyebrows. What a concept.

And Toma is playing Hitler in a play. I'm not sure how to feel about this 0_0

I ♥ his smile. Among other things...

Video's been taken down )

I'm EXHAUSTED. I was going to go to sleep, but after that vid, now I want to watch an ep of Toma's most recent drama. I've been so bad at keeping up with my shows lately, I've still only seen the first two. And there's like 5 JONAS eps on my DVR. So that should tell you how unmotivated I am about everything right now.

‎So the last couple of days have been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me. Mostly down though. So more like a plummeting emotional elevator? I don't have the energy to go into it now, but at the moment, things are... okay.

Got a new manager at work though and I'm a little anxious. Only worked with her once so far. She seems alright, but I just don't really know. We'll see how it plays out I guess.

White Collar was wonderful. Loved the ending (and the bit right before, especially). Not happy it's time for the midseason finale already though. Psych was hilarious. Shawn being a fanboy was adorable.

Merlin's starting up again soon. I look forward to the insanity ;)

And I'm currently enjoying Grandma's House. Normally I wouldn't really be into this sort of stuff - I get TERRIBLE second-hand embarrassment - but I love Simon Amstell. I love that he can't really act and he looks like he's going to bust out laughing at any moment. It's all just part of his charm. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from the first episode. )

And in fandom collision news, in an interview with Benedict Cumberbatch (my brother actually asked me if that was his real name) here, he was asked who his favorite actors/actresses were and he responded:

Stephen Dillane, Mark Rylance, Simon Russell Beale, Eddie Redmayne, James McAvoy, Casey Affleck, Ryan Gosling, Jimmie Stewart, Adrian Scarborough, Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Rod Steiger, Steve McQueen, Martin Sheen, Alison Janney, Sissey Spacek, Meryl Streep, Nancy Carroll, Juliette Binoche, Maggie Gylenhall, Amy Adams. There is an infinitely bigger list... God I hate lists!


Obviously I did the bolding there ;) But yeah. I don't know. That made me really happy. I 'know' that Ryan is a wonderful actor. I've seen it. And he was nominated for an Academy Award ffs. But I still see him as Sean Hanlon/Young Hercules. Either way, I'm proud of him.

And I'm proud of Toma! He is no longer considered a Jr. and now has his very own page

And for what it's worth: I won't be crossposting anything of mine or anyone else's to FB or Twitter. And while I doubt anyone would want to crosspost anything I've said, I'd rather you didn't. Right then. That's enough of that.

TOKIO's music video for 'NaNaNa' is out and it stars TOMA!!! So instead of sleeping (seriously, I get up in less than 3 hours for work o_0) I present a mini-picspam of Toma in the PV for 'NaNaNa (Taiyou Nante Irane)'. And two gifs (for now) because Toma's dancing is one of the most adorable things I've seen. He's just so HAPPY ♥_♥

It's infatuation )

Or you could just watch the video :)

Toma's new show started yesterday! Even though he has three movies coming out this year, God only knows when I'll actually be able to see them, so this is very exciting news for me. Now I just have to wait patiently for subs... I don't know if I should just go ahead and watch the ep now without subs and try to understand what's going on through context, or if I should wait for my first time viewing to be with subs. It's a funny show and I don't want to spoil the jokes ahead of time without really being able to understand, so maybe I should just wait.

*le sigh*

Today was my mother's birthday!! I won't say how old she is though :P And this coming Monday is my first day off since I got back from vacation so if I have the energy I might post some pictures from my trip. But more likely, I'll stay in bed all day and watch movies :) After all, I'm back to working 6-day weeks for the foreseeable future.

Oh, and I finally bought the Doctor Who 11th Doctor Crash 2-pack. I'll get the Sonic Screwdriver as soon as they're back in stock. Now I just need Amy, Rory when they finally make one, the TARDIS, all the Eleven/Amy and Eleven/Amy/Rory books, etc. Spoilers for 'The Big Bang' )

(Side note to myself: I know where my Kirk and Spock figures are but where the hell are Jack and Daniel?! I should look for them on my day off.)

What was I saying? Oh yeah! Doctor Who was quite hilarious. With a couple of touching moments thrown in for good measure. I don't really have the energy to say anything else, but it was a good one. However, now I'm a little preoccupied by the teaser for next week. Holy crap, that looks like a fun/mind fucker of an episode.

The other day, I got stopped at the mall by someone who works at a salon downtown asking me if I wanted to be a sort of hair model. I don't remember if I mentioned it before, but like a year ago I guess, I got stopped by someone from the same salon and at the same mall. Last time it was because they liked my hair cut (bob) but this time it was because they were looking for redheads and they liked my color. Made me smile.

Today I got my eyebrows done. Finally. I was trying to let them grow out because I had kind of over tweezed, but they were getting a little crazy there. And I love that the lady doing my eyebrows asked if I was Spanish. I am a little, but more Italian than that. And yes, I know I'm hairy :P

Today I also finally got to watch St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold. It was a fun, cute movie. Not as good as the first, but it did have Colin Firth AND David Tennant so I can't really complain.
