|10:37 pm - The wonders of CCM|
Oh, Contemporary Culture and Media, how you make me laugh. It is very probably the only place in existance where you will hear, in dead seriousness the phrase, "the discourses around Bootylicious" being used.
(I did give a guilty sort of smirk when the lecturer started talking about branding as a sort of commodity fetishism. What with me missing his last lecture for the Stella McCartney opening, and wearing my Stella dress to this lecture...)
Still, I am currently trying to make up my mind as to what to do my mid-semester paper on. I'm currently leaning towards analysing a scene from a movie (rather than just a picture), but that means I have to decide what scene. And, you know, what movie. V for Vendetta struck me as a possibility, since A) I have it on DVD, B) It has some seriously impressive visuals, C) Some nice symbolic stuff going on, and D) It's just plain cool. But we shall have to see. I may change my mind.
On the subject of cool, ZOMG POTC3 TRAILER!
Yeah, it's in Russian. It's still damned awesome.
And whilst I'm linking trailers, a second Doctor Who S3 trailer. Much shorter than the first, but with added Boe.
And still being linktastic, A cute, if rather amusingly bonkers picture of Freema Agyeman. Oh, those British papers...
Oh, and everyone's favourite loony, the Horse Wife guy is on OTF_Wank again. This time, because he's apparently kicked out his girlfriend for wanting to see other guys (not the horse, his other love interest). It's like the worlds most cracked out soap opera.
ETA: Doctor Who and the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny. Proof you need very few vidding skills whatsoever to make a freaking hysterical vid. Tears of laughter here, literally.
Current Mood: amused
Ah, the horsefucker. If ever a wank there was...
. . . why is the Brigadier Shaq?
I have no idea. Doesn't stop it being hilarious, though.
Doctor Who and the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny.
Who will survive? --> final picture. That was a LOL moment, for sure. :-)
Will there ever be another 'real' links list?
The person who made that video should get a prize.
I took one look at the folder of potential links, and ran away gibbering in terror. So the answer is... maybe. When I am less busy. I have too many mid-semester papers coming up right now
I don't watch all that many vids, so I can't judge on that count. But it *was* funny.
Of course. I just thought I'd register my continued interest at some point. No whining was intended. Good luck on your papers.
Funny is all you need.
I didn't take it as whining. Occasionally I get annoyed at not doing one, and then see how I would need to do, and run off again. First isn't due for another couple of weeks. But study must be done, alas.
Eee POTC3! *g*
And V for Vendetta is awesome.
There is awesome, and there is even more awesome.
It's an awesomegasm!

GUH, I LOVE HIM SO.
POTC 3, Harry Potter 7 (and movie five) and Doctor Who series three I think I might have just hit my happy little geek fangirl heaven. Thank you for this (and I am not indulging my morbid curiosity and clicking that second last link. It will not end well).
...And I also have the next books from Jasper Fforde, Terry Pratchett and Dresden Files coming out, too.
I may have a new Awesome Fannish Year to take over from 2005.
New Jasper Fforde and Terry Pratchett. This year is officially full of win and awesome now *hugs year happily*
Note to self: Make a 2007 fanclub.
And now I feel the need to icon this *curses lack of icon making skills* I wonder if you can actuall reach some sort of happy fannish nirvana at a certain point though?
V for Vendetta is love. And ripe for analysis. I did a fairly similar-sounding course last year (sociology of popular culture) and we actually had a discussion about Doctor Who fandom, which was slightly freaky.
Freema is adorable.
We talk about television in the third half of the semester (We've done images, about to start Cinema). And there is, according to a friend who did the subject last year, at least one section on fandom. Probably not Who, seeing as it is somewhat less omnipresent here in Australia.
She is, rather. As an optimist, I approve of happy and enthusiastic people.
