I've never watched Startrek Enterprise before, but I realised the other day that at some point (likely several years ago) I bought the first 3 seasons on DVD. I started watching some today.

Does anyone else find it weird that Enterprise was part of an Earth collaboration, Starfleet, etc. And yet. the opening theme only shows American achievements in flight and space travel? Why not stick some Russian, Japanese, British etc. achievements in there? It's so very small-minded given what Startrek is all about. *sigh*

Anyhoo, the theme song is stupidly catchy. Might see if it's available to download on iTunes or something. I'm liking the slightly stuffy security guy and the medical officer. It's a nice cross of new and original startrek series so far, but I bet the die-hard fans struggled with it being a little inconsistent with original trek. Luckily I'm a fan, not a die-hard fan. Ha!

What exactly are Mischa and Jensen raising money for?  Another suicide prevention campaign type thing, I gather,  but I can't find a post where they explain it. Just curious. Sounded complicated with fan helpers and stuff.  Can you explain it to me quickly? Xx

EDIT: GOT IT! THANKS! :D

Anyone know where you can get Grenada Holmes for a reasonable price that will ship to Australia? So far I've had no luck. There's heaps of second-hand copies, but none that ship here. Amazon.com had it for sale price (minus the movies), but again won't ship here. I love the Jeremy Brett version of Holmes. Just wondering if anyone has better google-fu than me.

I'm after a sort of box-set-like thing, like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00008N754/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me=

I have no idea how I was watching it previously. Maybe it was on youtube? I don't seem to have it, but I know I watched quite a lot of it at one point.

This is a most amazing speech on how our culture promotes the violence against women. Not a new concept unfortunately,  but still relevant. 

http://speakola.com/ideas/ken-lay-violence-against-women-2015

"If we truly believe that the future of our girls are as bright as our boys, we need to meet that desire with something other than vague commitments on one day a year.

It needs to be matched with our lessons, both spoken and lived.

How often do we tell our daughters what to wear – but rarely tell our sons what respectful sexual relations are?

How often do we warn our daughters about provocation – but rarely talk to our boys about consent?

How often do we justify the cruelty of boys? And ask our girls to avoid it.

How often do we thoughtlessly accept that boys will be boys.

The answer is … every day."

OMG! OMG! OMG! It looks so twisty! Squeeee!
So love this show!

OMG! I miss Constantine so much.  They must bring him back again and again on Arrow! And they're getting the band back together.  All the people!  So excited!  Ahhhhh!

Loving it!

Just went on my usual walk and got honked at by 2 utes, a truck and a van. One guy even did a loop to have a second go.  All were obviously labourers or something similar (orange vests etc.)

Interestingly all just smiled and waved at me.  No "hey baby". No wolf whistles. Maybe the feminist message is slowly percolating down to more guys?  Or am I too optimistic?

It's everywhere. I assume there are hidden nasty links in it, even though it looks like Russian maths honework and library books.

If you mod a community, please check your comms. It's all that's in my f-list. Definitely all over the SPN and Sherlock comms. :-(

Loving Kill Joys! I've needed some new sci fi shows in my life and it seems Kill Joys and Stitchers is filling that gap at the moment.
Anyone know of communities for them on LJ?

Hey guys. My friend and I signed up for GISHWHES and then none if the other peeps we were expecting to sign on with us have. We have work commitments so will be fairly casual, but want to have lots of fun. We are located in Australia.

That said if anyone needs two team members, please contact me ASAP and we'll happily transfer to your team.

Yes, I am still alive. Been acting a higher position at work and busy generally and online stuff has fallen into the cracks again. Oy!

How are you all doing?

Another thing that has taken my spare time of late is Netflix and Presto, both of which I am getting free right now (ZOMG! for a few weeks more anyway). Ahhhhh! So much to watch! It's awesome!

Back in the day I was addicted to both The X Files (probably my first and most-loved TV show - I never missed an episode in all 10 seasons, I kid you not...) and Stargate SG1. Both of which I watched long before I knew what a "fandom" was. I watched them religiously. Just ask my mum, she had to tape them if I was out. LOL!

Sooo, I've been doing a bit of re-watching on Presto and Netflix and I suddenly thought... Fandom! Specifically X Files Fandom. Was there one? Is there good fan fiction out there? If anyone can point me to some good h/c for Mulder and Scully, I would seriously love you right now. I'm kinda excited by the concept and hoping there's all this awesomeness out there I've never thought to go look for. (Also in need of a good Mulder and Scully icon.)

Anyhoo. I need to catch up on all the current shows. But the rewatching caught me in a vortex of XFiles and Stargate love, so I haven't much fandomy to chat about. You still all rock!

OOh also saw the latest Avengers movie. How did you all feel about it? Especially the whole Hawkeye thing, which I found a little... weird (trying not to be spoilery here). Lemme know. I'm so very curious!

xxx Love you guys!
Hey guys, I'm trying to catch up on a few shows. Supernatural, Constantine, The Flash, Arrow, Marvel's Agent Carter and and Marvel's Agents of Shield. Sorry I haven't been online to chat.

*Please tell me Crowley's mother gets it eventually. I really can't stand her and not in a good (she's evil) way. She just irritates me and keep wanting to turn it off when their scenes are on...when I assume it's meant to be funny. I'd be watching so much faster without her, because it's fine otherwise. I will catch up guys. Sorry I'm so slow. I haven't been chatting or whatever because I'm so behind.

*Loving Constantine. I'm down to the last two episodes for the season. Please tell me there will be more. Love love love. Such a cheeky bugger!

*The Flash. Eeeee. I'm only 2 episodes behind now and I cannot believe it! Time travel madness to come I assume. Can't wait.

*Arrow is going down an interesting path too. I'm only one episode behind on it now (i.e. pretty up to date). Ooooh don't do it Ollie!

*I'm really behind on Agent Carter, but it's gorgeous. Are they continuing the series? I've heard things both ways.

*Up to date (or one ep behind?) on Agents of Shield. Can't wait to see where Skye's story arc is headed.

New Shows:
*I'm also quite liking iZombie. Watched the first 2 episodes and it seems pretty fun. I love the idea of a reluctant zombie using her brain-eating psychic abilities to fight crime. Must have been really fun graphic novels.

*Loving 12 monkeys! Is anyone else watching this show?

I just watched Deliver us from Evil. It was a reasonable supernatural horror thriller. No plot twists really, just an account of something that happened to a dude with some reasonably creepy shit going down. But it was well done.

The leads (Eric Bana, Édgar Ramírez) are both so very smoking hot in this... I don't have slash goggles at all, but those two can be in any movie together they like and I'll watch it. Mmmm. (I would also totally read any fan fiction - slash or gen - carrying on from where the film left off. Recs welcome.) In conclusion, I liked it. Will likely buy the DVD for future ogling (Why yes I am shallow.), or for when I'm in the mood for a supernatural thriller.

According to Goodreads, this is what I've read this year. I haven't kept track any other way, so I'll assume I'm not missing any.
They're under this cut )

I'm currently reading The Death Cure by James Dashner (I just want to know if there is a point to it all, so I keep reading, but I was bored already by the second book) and #1 of the New 52 The Birds of Prey (Kick ass gals unite, yeah! I am loving Starling. I wish she had her own series.).

Any recommendations always welcome. I seem to have had quite a year in YA.

I've recently made a bunch of icons for comic challenges ([livejournal.com profile] flarrow_stills and [livejournal.com profile] comics_ic). I've re-posted them all in one big lump on my icon journal if you're interested. I find these challenges fun, not because I win, but because they're a concrete bit of artistic fun I can do and then move on without feeling guilty at taking time out. We all need that, right? I hope they also turn out okay.
