My SPN S11 watch got derailed a few months back for... reasons. Computer ones mostly.
Anyhoo, finally figured out I was up to episode 7, so I'll get back to that. But I'm so forgetful. Can someone fill me in on why (if we know) Sam possible spoiler I guess ) again? Thanks buddies. This is the best place to ask such things. I know you all not only watch it, but are like "how does she not know that"? Ha!

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.

Is the Windows 10 FREE upgrade thing my computer keeps displaying real? What's the catch?

Hey guys,

Are any of you into comics? I'm looking at buying some, but it's like jumping into a giant pool with no end in sight. As someone who has never read comics, it's hard to know where to start.

That said I've found a few "New 52" ones that look pretty kick-ass and I'm wondering if there is a good site for ordering them. One that ships to Australia. Otherwise I can get my local Impact Comics store to order me stuff. They were very enthusiastic today. I don't think they see many confused 30-somethings randomly asking questions about everything. :P

Um, so where are all The Flash fans? I can't find any communities or anything at all on LJ.

I need icons.
I need fic.
Stat.
Silly, fun fic.
Pretty, pretty icons.

Would anyone like to start a community? I'm not around enough to adequately moderate something, but I'd happily be part of a team.

I am trying to buy some clothes from Hot Topic. In particular, I'd like this Tardis dress or one of the other DW dresses for Halloween.

Does anyone frequent this store or regularly buy off their website and have an idea of their sizes? It's American, I believe.

I'm trying to figure out their sizes. There is a size chart, but it only gives the junior sizing and not all the clothes say they are in junior sizing, whereas other ones state it very clearly. I'm an XXXL in their junior sizes, so that's quite a difference to the average M I'd be in most stores and I assume it would be massive if not in junior sizes.

Anyone?

They have half price international shipping right now, but I don't want to order something in a size I'll never wear. I've asked them, but so far no response to my queries. *sad face*

I've fallen in love with the new show Forever with Ioan Gruffudd looking and sounding more gorgeous than ever. Actually, I could listen to him read a phone book. Mmmm.
Can anyone tell me if there's an LJ community yet? I need one! Stat!

(I just purchased Hornblower on DVD as I need to watch it again suddenly. Ha!)

Anyone want to give me a random plot outcome? It's for this. Thanks! :)

Can anyone explain what happened there? I am very confused.

spoilers )

EDIT: Haha! This (spoilery of course) review sums up my WTF? perfectly! Fangirlish review of 4x10
I'd like to buy a small camera. My smart phone is a bit hit and miss with photos and video and that is all I have at the moment.

Basically I'd like something small and reliable and easy to use. Not rocket science. Something I can stick in my pocket or handbag would be ideal. But ones I've had in the post have created fairly grainy photos and video.

Has anyone seen any good reviews or has there been a Choice survey of small cameras recently or do you have one (recently purchased) that is working well?

I won't lie, I want it before GISHWHES begins!

Any help appreciated.
Xx

A list of SPN episodes and the places the characters visit in each episode (as in where they are in America) for Season 1 though 3.

Does such a thing exist? Supernatural Wiki is a bit of a mystery to me, I'm sure I found something like this on there once, but now... not so much.

Are they any good?

I never really thought to pick one up before, but since I'm doing a rewatch, I was thinking I could read them as I rewatch. I read all the XFiles novels back in the day and the Primeval novels were action-packed. But I never read fan fiction for those shows.

So now that my Kindle is finally working again, is it worth buying any of them, or would I be better off just downloading more fanfic off A03? Are some much better than others? Do they really fit into canon? If they're even half decent I'll likely give them a go.

Thoughts welcome from anyone who has read them and has any opinion on them. No spoilers though, please. :D
I'm wandering through all the SPN communities I'm a member of and I'm saddened to find they are almost all dead. There's just crickets and the echo of happier days. (Though I am happy they're still up as an archive.)

Can anyone point me to where SPN fandom is still alive? Has it moved to Dreamwidth? Is it hiding in a few communities I am not a member of or haven't flittered into yet? In particular are there any:
- writing communities open to fact-finding or collating of information for SPN writers,
- general discussion communities,
- busy fic communities?

I'm almost regretting popping in. It's like the party is over and I'm sitting here eating the cake alone. It's very good cake though. :(

SPN people come friend me. :P

(Me: I'm mostly a gen girl, but I don't mind mixed communities and I will read the odd bit of het and slash. I don't do the Wincest/J2 thing, but it won't stop me talking to you if you don't mind that I don't go there. I'm currently re-watching my DVDs. Just hit Season 4!)
How do Americans usually refer to a toasted sandwich? Like something you'd buy at a coffee shop chain with ham/cheese/tomato or something.

Jaffle, toastie, toasted sandwich...?

It's for a fic. Sam and Dean are in Utah, I think. In case that makes a difference. Still working on that, my geography sucks in my own country, let alone a whole other one.

Thanks guys! :)

Hi everybody and anybody reading this,

I am trying to throw a multi-fandom vid together in rather a rush for an event and I could use some input from anyone who reads this. I need some poignant moments (in a visual sense - rather than the words being said in the scene) from any of the below-listed fandoms that encompasses the below-listed words for you. It can be anything that particularly stands out to you. Basically, the first scene you think of when you read the words.

If you could please throw me the episode number (and a time stamp if you have know it), I'd be ever so grateful.

The words:
Love
Faith
Hope
Loss
Death
Adventure
Friends/Companions
Family

Scenes from any of the following fandoms:
Firefly/Serenity
Supernatural
Marvel's Agents of Shield
Doctor Who (new series)
Stargate (SGA, SG1 or the original movie)
Merlin
The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit

THANK YOU! xx

Hello people,

I want to make a Riley vid for Intelligence focusing on her being a strong woman doing her job as a protector. There's this feminist convention asking for vids and I kinda think I'd like to make this for it.

But I can't think of music. Any ideas would be very welcome. Please.
There's no right or wrong.
xx
Would one of my lovely f-listers please do me a favour?

The below list of vidders are taking part in TGETVE4. Someone please comment by copying the names and then randomly assigning each vidder a number between 1 and 6. Please only assign each number once.

Nightshadeisis
Starrylizard
hay1ock
SLauveng
Ash48
Coastal5

I will only use the numbers assigned by the very first commenter, so just one of you please.
THANK YOU!

So what's the go with Etsy?
Is it a safe buying environment or buyer beware?

I've found some stuff I'd love to get (they have Captain America cushion covers), but I've just never shopped there before and I'm not sure what to expect. Any experienced Etsy customers who can give me advice, your comments would be most welcome.

Someone help me out here, please. Where do these two video snippets come from? Are they DVD extras? If so which DVD.

snippets under the cut )

I'm starting to wonder what else I'm missing.
Oh, but before you ask, I have seen Coulsen kick butt at the gas station. LOL

Oh also, is there a Marvel icons community?
[livejournal.com profile] marvel_icons too easy!

I really want to watch all of Smallville, but I'm still back at S6 or so. I'm looking for scenes of movies/TV shows that show that heroes are heroes because of the friends and loved ones around them.

And I came across this scene on youtube from S10. <--clicky (obviously S10 spoilers!)

Is there any reason that this scene wouldn't fit that description? Just don't want to get something waaaay out of context, ya know.

Cheers and thanks
