Um, er, whoops?
I meant to update earlier - it's not even as if I had nothing to post about, because I did.
'Cos on Friday night I went with Allan and ...some other people and finally got to see Dark Knight on IMAX
(If you are reading this aloud, please take some deep breaths here)
...But that's not really why I am posting. 'Cos it's not like most of you guys really care about what goes on in my personal life.
So, onto the fun stuff: Fandom!
Firstly, there's been a number of very good Doctor Who vids floating around lately I've noticed. There's Handlebars by flummery, which is a sort of reflection of just who Ten really is, and displays some of the scarier conclusions (and I sort of hate for getting that song stuck in my head for three days straight); There's Shut Up and Drive by laurashapiro, for which the summary speaks for itself: Martha > you.
And then there's my personal favourite, not because it's a cheery fun vid, but because it's the opposite - it's one of the most painful vids I've ever seen. What We Had by cherryice, which is basically looking at how the Doctor treats the people he travels with (and demonstrates exactly why I utterly loathe the whole companion hierachy thing).
I will admit that in my more cynical moments I hope this goes as viral and meta-producing as that Supernatural vid about the female characters did, because it gives me the same ouchy but brilliant feeling to watch.
And onto more cheery matters. I have been in a ridiculously cheery mood all day, and it's all to do with two things I came across in my half-hour of Internetting before I headed into class.
Firstly, the announcement that there will be a new Fullmetal Alchemist anime.
Now, this delights me on multiple levels.
1. MORE FMA! *\o/* I'm one of those people who loves both the anime and the manga, so I don't care what they do - sequel anime, prequel anime, full manga adaptation, whatever. It's more FMA, and I am thrilled.
2. For the first time, I'll be fannishly involved in a WIP anime. All the anime I've gotten into so far are complete, so this sort of involvement is all new and exciting to me. (Of course, when I saw I've gotten into anime, I basically mean I like two anime/manga series; namely FMA and Death Note. And I'm open to recommendations, hint hint)
3. The glorious, glorious wank that will ensue. It's already bubbling around the edges, and I admit I am going to laugh my arse off when more info comes out and it starts proper.
...All that aside. I never saw that coming. SO MUCH SHINY YAYNESS!
The second thing I found - and probably the biggest reason for my ridiculous grinning - was these new comic scans over at scans_daily (From Superman/Batman #51, to be exact). I'll say no more, except that you really have to see these for yourself, because honest to God (or your higher power du jour), I literally laughed so hard I cried.
And then I toddled down to one of the CBD comic stores and bought the hell out of it.
...In lieu of this whole thing, I'm making a comics tag. And debating if all my Dark Knight posts should be included in it or not.
And those are the things that are making me happy today. Long may they continue.
