Doctor Who 10x10 The Eaters of Light

short review )

*sigh* Something's not right with the latest episodes. The season started out so well, but then it got meh. I'm not sure what it is - pacing, maybe? It feels like Classic Who: things are happening, but it doesn't feel like it. The stories sound good in summary, but watching them isn't as interesting.

Icons \o/

Yesterday I upgraded my Dreamwidth account, buying it only for the icon space. It was super easy, no going to another website required - yay!

What wasn't easy was what came next, because I didn't think things through. I imported my icons from LJ to Dw, there wasn't enough icon space, so I deleted some on LJ that I haven't used in a while. So there it had started getting messy, because I didn't want to look through which icons were new on my Dw and which ones are the original 15. And I've been wanting to reorganize my icons for a while, so I did that then by renaming their keywords on LJ and also manually on Dw (because I didn't know if an import with new keywords would mess with the entries that use the old keywords). Did another import to get the remaining icons, but Dw didn't seem to have noticed that I had made changes to my LJ icons. And then my Dw icons had both the old and the new keywords. So then I checked every single icon and did correction where they were necessary. Haha, what fun, I know how to waste my time!

Anyway, I finally have all my icons on Dw. \o/

Wow, I'm super slow!

I wondered why, if Trump didn't collude with Russia, he'd be so against the investigation into the matter. I've just finally had my lightbulb moment: It's because he's rather sensitive about his presidency being considered illegitimate! And that's what it would probably be considered if it turned out that there was collusion between someone in the campaign and Russia. ...You know, as if his overall incompetence alone shouldn't have disqualified him.

My god, I could rant on about this topic forever. Like: WTF is wrong with Republicans? Do they really think they can get away with their complicity? Will they (e.g. complicit VPs shouldn't get to be president)? Once Trump is out, what new laws will be made to make sure something like this won't happen again? Isn't firing your FBI director just out of anger also a superduper standalone reason to get you unpresidented?!

Had a thought about The X-Files season 11

I love that joke where they showed the portrait of Bush in Skinner's office and the theme played. Would it be weird if they repeated that joke? I want/need them to do that with Trump. ...Unless of course he's been unpresidented until S11.

And in related, breaking news: Whoa, the FBI director was just fired!

LJ & Dw stuff

  • Because numbers with number sign in front of them are now automatically turned into hashtags and added also as a tag to your post, I now have to use the numeric character reference # instead of just typing #. Thanks a lot, LJ!

  • I had forgotten how much not having icons for everything can take the fun out of commenting. So I can't wait to get a paid account on Dw! I'm aiming for this month - let's see what my bank account says.

  • I've seen the position of the crosspost change from in front of the mood to behind it and back again several times today! At first I thought it was the poster changing their layout, but then I realized that what someone does with their layout isn't visible on my f'list! Why are you fucking with me, Dreamwidth?!

Rewatching Three

So I'm finally rewatching again what is most likely the obscurest of my favorite shows (though if you're German, there's more of a chance that you've heard of this American show). Style-wise the only thing I remembered of it was how cheesy it could be with the spy tech.
I rediscovered why I loved this show and now I'm all over it again. Man, so I love it when I rewatch something and realize I still love it as much as I used to. The quality banter! The soundtrack rocks. Amanda is great (and I still love her hair), Marcus still crush-worthy, and I still don't care much about Jonathan.

I got some tech with which I can digitize my videocassettes and I'll try it out with 1x08 - the episode that's still nowhere to be found online. So hopefully I'll be able to share it (depends on the filesize) and be the hero of a teensy fandom, hahaha.
