Finally started watching To the Ends of the Earth starring Benedict Cumberbatch, and while I knew Sam Neill and Tom HiddlestonJJ Feilds were in it, I was tickled to discover among the crew members of the ship one of the actors from The Last Enemy. I don't know his name (and am too lazy to look him up), but he played Yasim's friend, the skinny bloke who was in the apartment below the Ezards' at the start of it.

We're also slowly catching up on Battlestar Galactica on Netflix (well I am, hubbie has seen it already so it's a rewatch for him), and today was Mark Sheppard's first guest starring episode! Great character, can't wait to see more of him! I'm enjoying the series a lot.

Previously, we watched Burn Notice (omg please add the next season soon, after that cliffhanger!), Copper (for which they just added new episodes, so that'll be next after we wrap up BG), The Shield, and Hell on Wheels, among others. I can recommend all of them. Oh and from the category of sadly cancelled shows, Reaper - it's funny, and Ray Wise clearly relished playing the Devil. :D

Now we need to get Season 2 of Game of Thrones on Blu-ray!

Hobbit TV spot #9; hello hint of Smaug!
- Of course you just see his silhouette, more or less!

Follow Tolkien’s footsteps through the Swiss Alps - Neat! It seems he made it to Chur, the capitol of the Swiss canton I grew up in. :) And I guess on one of my future visits home I'll have to take a trip to the village of Jenins to visit the Tolkien museum there, which will open next year (September 2013, I read somewhere)!

New Zealand peak could be dubbed: Mount Tolkien

An Interview with the Elusive Fran Walsh!

As seen on various LJs on my flist.

You have one guess which fandom gets mentioned the most. ;)

Right. I should stop dawdling about and take a shower. Stuff to do...

And not in a movie or TV series, but in a documentary about the Rolling Stones' time in France, during which they recorded their "Exile on Main Street" album. I'm SO GLAD I now have the BBC channels on TV and can record this!

Apparently there will also be an exhibition of photographs from that period, taken by Dominique Tarlé, who contributed a lot of the photos to Robert Greenfield's book "A Day in the Life" about Jake's family. Unfortunately it's in July/August which means it's highly unlikely that I can go. Oh well, it's for a very good reason, which I have to post about still, but now I have to get off my behind and get going on that Open University assignment that's due on Tuesday...

Max Headroom - ABC's 1987 Series to DVD as a Result of Warner's New Licensing Deal with Shout! Factory

Squeeee! I loved this series but sadly it was only ever aired the one time here. It's rather hard to believe that they've waited this long to release it on DVD - I mean, it was cult right from the word go. But at long last! Wheeee!

First of all I'd like to share this brilliant article about introverts with you which [livejournal.com profile] shirasade just pointed out: Caring for Your Introvert So many true points in there! And there are even introverts who don't get the need for space and being alone that their fellow introverts have...

Also, I'll be leaving for Vienna tomorrow noon where I'll be among a small group of coworkers staffing the booth we have at the edge of a big conference Wednesday to Friday. Should be interesting, and I'm looking forward to seeing a bit of Vienna - never been there before. I should be able to check LJ and e-mail occasionally, but am not sure how often. Hope you'll all have a good week, and I'll TTY Saturday night or Sunday at the latest! :)

A Poet's Guide to Britain on BBC Four - presenter Owen Sheers is rather cute, isn't he? I guess I can continue packing in 20 minutes... ;)

I happened across Goldfrapp at Glastonbury 2008 on BBC HD and while I'd heard of the band, I didn't think I had actually heard them, but in fact several songs sounded familiar - and not only "Ooh la la". I quite like what I'm hearing. Not so sure about the singer's outfit, but then this is Glastonbury... ;D

Well they're finishing, so I guess I should take that as my clue to sign off and go to bed, since it's Monday tomorrow. Have a good night!

Just saw a "What do you say UK?" ad for New Zealand on Film4. Okay so it was all about stuff like Bungey Jumping, Flying Fox etc. but still, eeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

Why isn't it even noon yet, when I want it to be time to go home?! *pouts* Things are still very quiet at work, and I've spent most of my time since returning from my holiday break wanting to beat our effing webpublisher software to a pulp. Grrr. I'd rather be reading or watching DVDs or sleeping...

Over the holidays I got into a really weird sleeping-waking rhythm: I was up until the wee hours (usually sometime between 2AM and 5AM), and sleeping until sometime around/after noon. The night to Sunday I basically couldn't sleep at all; Monday morning I woke up with a headache and a queasy stomach so I went back to bed and only went to work when finding that I felt better as I woke up around noon; and yesterday I woke up an hour before the alarm. In short, my inner clock is still all out of whack. Why is it so easy to slip out of your everyday rhythm, but so difficult to get back into it?!

Mustn't forget: company new year's dinner (instead of Christmas dinner which would be difficult to do for scheduling reasons) tomorrow night. I hope I'll get back early enough to catch part 2 of the New Zealand documentary on German TV, of which I saw part 1 last night. Nothing spectacular but some interesting tidbits, and hey it's NZ - always worth watching just for the landscape imagery! :)

Weather: Sunny (as of today at least; the past days were cloudy) and cold. Which transfers to the office - I hate it when I have to sit at the computer with cold hands! *shivers*

Err... I'm sure there was something else, but I can't remember it right now. Oh well, I may add it later.

[livejournal.com profile] serenitysangel - there's a film on German TV with Steve Bacic as an astronaut (if I got that correctly) who got infected by some insect-like Alien and after coming back to Earth is now killing humans... :D

HBO acquires rights to Obama doc
To be produced by Edward Norton's Class 5 Films

By Gregg Goldstein

Nov 6, 2008, 06:34 PM ET

HBO has closed a seven-figure deal for U.S. rights to an untitled Barack Obama documentary from producer Edward Norton.

Norton's Class 5 Films approached the Obama campaign in early 2006 about a doc chronicling the new president elect's history in politics. Directors Amy Rice and Alicia Sams were granted extensive access to film Obama before he launched his presidential run in 2007 and have continued their shoot through his historic victory this week.

Lately I keep zapping into random episodes of Numb3rs on ITV3 (omg did I mention that I LOVE Bluewin TV?!) - unfortunately I keep missing the first half, roughly, but still, I'm enjoying it a lot. And David Krumholtz is rather cute, with the long hair. ;)

Oh yes - I think one of tonight's guest stars was the actress who plays Mother Petrelli on Heroes, just in blonde, and another one played Steve Sandvoss' mother in Latter Days! :D


And speaking of counting - is it Wednesday yet???!!! *prays for Obama to win*

Happy Halloween, to those who celebrate it! *uses fitting icon*

I just now by chance happened upon an article on Hollywood Reporter from three weeks ago:


Spike.com likes its 'Porn' PG
Orders shortform series spoofing adult films

By Andrew Wallenstein

Sept 19, 2008, 08:32 PM ET

Updated: Sept 20, 2008, 03:43 PM ET

Spike.com has ordered shortform series "James Gunn's PG Porn," which brings together primetime TV stars and leading porn actresses for comic -- and platonic -- vignettes. Safran Digital Group produces and distributes in association with Good Boy Prods.

read behind the cut to find out why you should be interested... :D )

I immediately did a search on Spike.com and here's what I found: )


The show's main page is here - hope to see more soon. ;)

Harry Knowles from Ain't It Cool News got a few exclusive glimpses of J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek film! The full report is here, containing some minor spoilers but it's random tidbits out of context which can't spoil the plot, IMHO. But I just had to quote what he said about Karl Urban, who of course plays McCoy:

But then there’s McCoy – when you see McCoy… you’ll realize how metaphysically perfect Karl Urban was for the casting of the character. He’s got that right cantankerous, best buddy, ethical, but anything for his friend type of doc attitude – and he has it down pat. He’s helping Jim to get onto a ship, but in a million years I wouldn’t spoil that. It’s funny, without being ridiculous. And it begins to exhibit the early kernels of a classic Bones/Kirk interaction. Best friends with a history – and perhaps this moment is a key moment of that history. The favor that launched a career? Perhaps that is what I saw.

Eeeeeeeeh!!! :D

Also about Karl, from this article about the charity KidsCan:

The charity also plans to start a "Stand Tall" initiative in August to give children excursions with high achievers such as Williams, TV3 journalist Mike McRoberts and Kiwi-born Hollywood actor Karl Urban.

"It's for kids who have never got past the corner dairy, to go on excursions with successful people," Mrs Helson said.

"They are going to learn values, goal-setting and things that are going to help motivate them to achieve."

Mr Nicholls said such role models showed students they could do anything.

Lucky kid that gets the excursion with Karl!

On to Neal McDonough - did I mention that I saw Tin Man in the meantime? Probably not. Ramblings about it behind the cut )

*ahem* Anyway, this is what I wanted to post:

Neal McDonough moving to 'Housewives'

Neal is another one of those talented actors who's been in several canceled TV series, so go him for getting a regular role on an established series, but did it have to be Housewives???!!! *sigh* (In case it wasn't clear from that comment, no, I don't like that series and frankly don't get why it's so successful.)

Right, I need to go, some more Hobbit related stuff later. See ya, have a great Saturday!

The European Football Championships haven't even begun, and I'm already sick of hearing about them... unfortunately some games take place in Switzerland, so it'll be even worse this year than usual! If only they'd make such a fuss about music or film related events! *rolls eyes*

There's already a release date for the Lost Season 4 DVDs: December 9, 2008. Full press release at TVShowsonDVD.com.

I still have to watch my Season 3 DVDs... eep!

Also - [livejournal.com profile] serenitysangel and other Firefly/Nathan fans, did you hear about this already? I only copied the Nathan relevant bits over - it's not much, but still.

Alyssa Milano and Nathan Fillion are in negotiations for the respective leads in two ABC pilots: the untitled Kristin Newman comedy and drama presentation "Castle."


"Castle," from ABC Studios, is a comedic procedural about a famous mystery novelist (Fillion) helping the NYPD solve crimes.

Fillion recurs on ABC's "Desperate Housewives" and recently wrapped the feature "Chilled in Miami."

Now if only Sean Maher would finally get another project...
