Article about scoring The Avengers - I approved of his Captain America score, and he called the movie "magnificent", so yay!

Fascinating, but long, discussion of language in Dollhouse.

Star Trek 2 will start shooting on January 15th...with a SUMMER 2013 RELEASE?!? WHAT?

Tolkien's Ladies: Is Geek Culture Female-Friendly? I think the fact that a lot of the male characters in LotR are either 'feminine' elves or cuddly hobbits or noble romantic heroes lends itself to female viewership as well, which is something that the article didn't touch on.

I totally don't have time for LJ at the moment and it is upsetting me. I've watched the Glee mid-season finale (okay, not my favourite), Dollhouse (WTF EPIC), Big Bang Theory (laughed out loud a LOT.)

6 LotR characters who totally dropped the ball, Guillermo Del Toro want Andy Serkis back for Gollum.

'Glee' cast react to Golden Globe noms. I didn't notice the snubbing of Big Bang Theory, but now I do, and it sucks. Sick of the Glee-bashing, though. Remind me to spam with my favourite bits of the show at some point.

I did a really huge Lord of the Rings anniversary cast picspam over at [ profile] thegreenscene. I noticed some repeats, but it's almost all stuff that was already in my Photobucket, which has all these folders and I never know what's where.

Here's a post about the anniversary.

The Strange, Twisted, And Destructive Love Stories of Joss Whedon. I love that io9 has a tag simply titled "RANT".
...the relationship between Malcolm Reynolds and Inara Serra is probably the most normal of Whedon's leading romantic stories

Hmm. Really? I mean, Simon/Kaylee and Wash/Zoe are pretty normal.

Nathan Fillion interview.

Promo for the next ep of Supernatural. BAHAHA. Jensen can do comedy so well. He can do anything. He should also be an internationally famous superstar, like Enver Gjokaj.

Old Cory Monteith interview where I just want to pinch his adorable little cheeks and then remind myself that he's actually older than me. How can he be that adorable and older than me?

I know this'll be exciting for all you lucky people who have already seen the first one: 'Zombieland' sequel a real possibility.

Disney princesses made COOL.

Okay, I have had a shitty night. It was going nicely, played Guitar Hero with Mitchell then went to his friend's place for wine and cheese and general dignified sort of interaction. Came home, got screamed at by my sister completely unfairly (she leant DVDs to Mitchell, and because he'd forgotten to give them back and they weren't there when she wants them, we are all horrible unreliable bitches who do nothing but cause her misery and she never wants anything to do with any of us again, and no, she has NEVER LIKED ME. I'm not kidding.) So then Mum came in for a D&M with me about Clare's behaviour, during which I got a text message from a friend of mine who is totally hot but who I really don't want to date saying he thinks I want to be more than friends with him. So. AUGH. What?

Now, fandom to cheer me up.

Do the Lord of the Rings fans on my flist know about [ profile] pocketfuloposes? It's the legendary [ profile] kiltsandlollies' picspam community and it is solid gold.

Have we seen this on the net already? One of the Lord of the Rings blooper reels. Even if we have, it's worth taking another look at. Always makes me happy.

More Half-Blood Prince stills, plus the older ones are now available in hi-res at TLC, and presumably other locations. I HEART RON'S LITTLE FACE and stupid new Quidditch uniform and entirely unknown Quidditch team, which, I suppose all the old faces HAVE gone. Demelza! Okay, I just really like that name.

I got two 'thanks but no thanks' emails from jobs I actually wanted today. One of them was filled by someone already working there, which was fine, but I know I could've done the other. I also spent about 3 hours driving around, which is longer than I spent actually at work out of my car. And I can't access my e-mail at all, but Squishy can, and that's not a good sign.

Olivia Williams cast as Adele DeWitt in Dollhouse! Finally, a cast member with an easily spelt and pronounced name. However, Ausiello lost serious points in my book for saying he'd 'never heard of her' (he was wrong, but still) and the other site loses points for naming 'X-Men: The Last Stand' as her outstanding achievement. I don't know how anyone could forget her in 'The Sixth Sense.' In my head she's always Chaucer's naked with in the 'A Knight's Tale' deleted scene. The deleted scenes for that movie are better than the movie itself, I swear.

N'awww! Zaphod Beeblebrox teddies! They're so disturbingly adorable. Or...adorably disturbing?

Two Harry Potter notes: I love how much JKR loves Evanna as Luna (I love her too, but the title of that one is redundant) and two more characters cast for HBP. The first one is...worrying. Spoilers )

SO MUCH CRAZY GOODNESS in fandom over the last couple of days.

Peter Jackson, New Line and MGM to produce The Hobbit - but PJ isn't directing. Who will, I wonder? Still, awesome news.

In equally 'made of awesome' news, a new tiny awesome has been born: Muhney is a daddy! Having seen him playing with kids, I squealed when I found out. BAAAAAABY. With the same name as one of my all-time favourite singers :D

OMG TORCHWOOD SEASON TWO TRAILER! Featuring that guy! The one we've all been hearing about!

This could be either the best or worst movie of all time: Ewan McGregor Will Have Prison Sex With Jim Carrey.

New old Supernatural promos. I like the second one.

The somewhat prolific [ profile] marishna has made about a million caps of the Supernatural season 2 DVD extras.
Speaking of the gag reel, am I the only one for whom spoilers if you haven't seen it yet )
Spoilery new season 3 photos. Still not impressed. This interview of those newbies upheld my old view: like one, hate the other.

By the way, who is Anita Sims? I'm sure I know you, but I can't always remember people's RL names. Uh, while I'm at it, also Maria Jose V.

Anyone up for James Marsden and Jesse Bradford kissing on a rooftop? As if no could ever be the answer. SO cute.

This makes the second day in a row that I've failed to mention that Mitchell and I went to a really interesting lecture at the Museum on Saturday about the special effects in Lord of the Rings. My memory fails at LIFE.

The guy who was giving the lecture, Paul Kirwan, was a compositor. He started by showing us the finished reel, then showed us how different parts of it were made and then put together in order to get the final product. I think the best part was seeing the animations of the creatures' skeletons and musculature at work, which were absolutely fascinating. The sections were the 'crumbling stairs' in the Mines of Moria getting to the bridge of Khazad Dum (specifically Legolas's arrow hitting a goblin, then a pan around to see two other goblins die in the foreground with the Fellowship in the background), the Watcher at the Gate (specifically it whipping Frodo into the air - Elijah did that stunt and you could see, in the raw footage, a bunch of guys hovering around with their arms out to stop him hitting equipment and hurting himself) and the cave troll attack (specifically Aragorn getting thrown into a wall - he starts as CG Aragorn and ends as stuntman!Aragorn.) The worst part was the guy mispronouncing Shia's name (he worked on Transformers as well.) Kirwan was very obviously enamoured of Peter Jackson, but he made him sound like a pretty hard taskmaster. We got to see all the different parts, not just the computer graphics stuff but the actual passes of the miniatures and the actors against blue-screen. Best part? It was free. :D

I know there's only a tiny number of Canberrans on my flist, but for anyone interested, there's a Lord of the Rings lecture at the Museum on Saturday, 2-3 pm.

JDM will be in The Watchmen. Apparently this is like the graphic novel geek's ultimate movie, or something.

If Joss Whedon had written Deathly Hallows. Spoilers.

Jo revealed the characters she hadn't intended to kill, which I kinda figured one of, but not both.

There's another nice (spoilery) interview of her, although this made me smirk a little:
She says she was concerned for her young fans, the "10- and 11-year-olds who really wanted not to know" how the book ended until they'd had a chance to read it.
I happen to know there was a 9-year-old fan wandering around at Telopea today telling the kids what happens in the book, so I wouldn't worry too much about THE CHILLUNS. Some of them are bigger shits than the adults.

Meta on Remus in Deathly Hallows which I quite agree with.

Harry Potter icons: Internet slang ones by [ profile] ack_attack and pretty GoF ones (includes some cool Transformers icons).

Monster Book of Monsters!

Most accurate sorting meme ever, IMHO )

Looks like it's a Heroes-rific day! Some spoilery information on season 2, movie projects etc. (I love the 3rd original comment down_), new promos (that only has the Masi ones, I need to join a less biased community, but I know [ profile] kerrsmith2306 has the other characters so they're around), a spoilery new Claire shot, and new episode stills.

There's also a bit of Season 4 Lost news that I think will not please some people on my flist :D

AUSSIES! You could win a trip to JKR's midnight signing of Deathly Hallows! I've entered.

I was having such an awesome week and then today the winding mechanism on one of the car windows broke. It sucks, because it broke when the window was all the way down, so I can't just leave it at a carpark. I will have to get it fixed tomorrow. I need the car for work Friday.

Notes on my Wednesday night ABC viewing: I wanted to jump through the screen and shag Adam Hills in his shirt that matched the question cards, and The Chaser got the release date for Deathly Hallows wrong so I am cranky with them. Especially since they're going on hiatus until September! Boo.

Everything You Want To Know About Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! This page is like a wet dream with LOADS of info about the movie.

They may actually not fuck up the Australian release of Heroes on DVD, which would be amazing.
