Genuinely a redhead (though it's not my only trait).
Expect Glee and Community (though other things may well turn up), with a healthy dollop of Classical bits on top - because that's how I roll. Ah, I'm also a Brit, this may influence my reblogs etc considerably. :DDD
I Believe in a Thing Called Love (Full Version) - Glee Cast [ft. Adam Lambert]
Well, I am chronically disappointed. I’ve wanted Kurt to sing this one for years complete with shiny catsuit and all the high notes in the world - but in removing all the falsetto the song loses all its vim. Also, weirdly, I think the level of polish here isn’t helping, there was always something hilariously low-budget-and-slightly-tacky bonkers about the Darkness which only added to the effect.
(Also, I can’t remember Kurt using the top of his range at all this season - another casualty of his change of direction? Or am I just misremembering things?)
2:30 AM,and I am finishing up my dissertation! How the hell do you write about Jupiter being on his second round with Leda in a serious academic way I genuinely don’t know argh.
I mean, I can think of a number of ways to put it, but they’re all quite intensely pornographic and they don’t quite work when you’re talking about a swan.
I went to see Mojo last night! I really, really enjoyed it, and I will shove most of this under a cut for the sake of spoilers and thinky thoughts.
Admittedly, I was there to see Ben Whishaw perform rather than anything else, but then so was the person next to me (“is he going to be naked in this one”, asked her gentleman-friend) and half the audience were probably going for one actor or another - the median age of the people in the room was much younger than the usual show audience. Actually, the casting director deserves a medal for meta-theatricality, in putting together a stellar cast with a number of very different fanbases for a play in which girls are said to be “creaming their cocoa” over a performer.
I love Mary and I think the way she’s been integrated into the story is very good indeed. I look forward to learning more about her.
Also, Sherlock’s parents! And all of the Mycroft!
Essentially I really enjoyed the episode. I look forward to rewatching it.
We have eaten the first of the cold meats and watched the Muppet Christmas Carol - our traditional family Christmas Eve activity. It is not quite the right time yet but I’m buggering off to Midnight Mass in a couple of minutes and then I’ll be going to bed. So. Hello, my lovely followers, and…
Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Seasons Greetings! [Insert preferred salutation here!]
Whatever you’re up to tomorrow, I hope you have a lovely day.
Zeus: im gonna put my dick in it
Everyone: dont put ur dick in it

Since Friday, I have written about six thousand words of academic things (an essay, a presentation and a good chunk of my dissertation).
Yesterday was a day which involved visiting five different libraries to get all the reading done for the next essay, which I’m about to embark on now. It’s in for tomorrow at five. I’m doing absolutely nothing after that, I’ve decided. Evening off. Fuck it.
After this mess, one more week and one more essay to go. Thank fuck. Pictures of Ben Whishaw and Christmas music are getting me through.
Very serious and important problem: I want to call Peter Capaldi 13 but I don’t want to call Matt 12.
I KNOW RIGHT?! Cos he isn’t 12, he will never be 12, he’s 11.
I hadn’t thought about this but yes, this is a problem.
8, 8.5, 9, 10, 11?
John Hurt would be 8 (bis) if he were in a museum catalogue and they found out they’d screwed up on the numbering…
