Posted in full at my tumblr via iftt on August 06, 2016 at 12:07AM, an animated gif by [tumblr.com profile] taraljc

Q: If you didn&quot;t play Bones and Sulu, what role would you want? Uhura (both)
Karl: Oh my gosh they high-five

Some interview:
Q: If you didn't play Bones and Sulu, what role would you want?

Karl Urban and John Cho, at the same time: Uhura

They look at each other. Karl says Oh my gosh.

They high five.

[tumblr.com profile] taraljc says, I now mentally refer to both of them as Nerdface.

If this is fanservice, I'm all for it!

Aidan Turner is in the US promoting Poldark with his castmates,...

via http://ift.tt/2aUoPs6, tumblr, and @aidanturnerdaily:

Aidan Turner is in the US promoting Poldark with his castmates.  There are lots of yummy photos as they are all very pretty people, but I like the red one of Aidan best of all of them, it feels intimate.

tumblr implemented on-blog advertising, which sucks

Jul. 31st, 2016 | 02:09 am

via http://ift.tt/2al94Pg and [tumblr.com profile] nonukesthanks:

tumblr implemented on-blog advertising, which is why blog theme html keeps getting messed up.

To shut it off:
  1. Click the ‘person’ icon in the top right
  2. Select ‘Settings’
  3. Select your blog from the column on the right
  4. Scroll down to the ‘Advertising’ section
  5. Shut that shit off.

You have to do it for all blogs individually, including side blogs.

I saw my first ad today, it blocked the blog content and I couldn’t figure out what was going on for quite a while. Blergh. cross-posted at http://msilverstar.dreamwidth.org/509323.html

10 things that make me happy

Jul. 4th, 2016 | 09:39 pm

Thanks to @demonessryu for tagging me! It took me a while, I just don't like writing about myself these days. So:

  1. I am employed! I like the company and the people and my job pretty well.

  2. I really like getting paid

  3. I get to ride a train to work, and I still love trains! It's not a perfect solution, but I would literally die if I had to drive. I'm working at home a couple of days a week as well. We'll see what happens when it gets dark at 4:30

  4. My daughter, who is showing me the Big Fat Quiz of Everything at the moment and generally being wonderful. And a family that watches Granada Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes together...

  5. My little house, which is cluttered, but still has high ceilings and lots of windows and green outside, and feels good.

  6. Good food: chocolate, Dungeness Crab, stone fruit esp. cherries and peaches, a perfect roast chicken, sushi, artisan bread, channa masala

  7. The weather is mostly mild and foggy in the mornings, sunny during the afternoons. My work is further inland but they have AC, as does the train.

  8. Fandom friends old and new, and art and fic with so much happy smut! And angsty epics and confusing wonderful fics and crossovers galore.

  9. Aidan Turner and Dean O'Gorman and Graham McTavish going to conventions (sadly, not the same ones) and still enjoying the fan love

  10. The color green, specifically dark emerald green.

TV binge watching in progress

Mar. 10th, 2016 | 03:00 pm

  • Orange is the New Black - in small doses, it's really intense and reminds me about the failures of our society
  • Call the Midwife - I liked that jenny didn't fall in love with the guy who pursues her, and she did break up with the married guy.  It's an interesting combination of romance, religion and gritty reality, and the screaming labor is always
  • MASH - We used to watch it every week, when it was a contemporary answer to the Vietnam War, it's weird seeing the period from so far away. Parts of it have aged better than others, the sexism is gross but Larry Linville is oddly attractive at times.
  • Almighty Johnsons - Such weird show, but I like it a lot, and my fave Dean O'Gorman is very fun to watch.  It starts off very male but gets more balanced and has truly unexpected plot twists.  The Axl/Helen bodyswap episode is bizarrely  funny and memorable and the Gin Wigmore soundtrack is great.
  • Tried Silver Linings Playbook and was bored out of my skull.
  • The West Wing - girlchild adores it, the crackly dialog, she has no idea what a great fantasy that was during the Bush administration
Amazon Prime (they are losing money on us, heh)
  • Dancing on the Edge- Jazz musicians in 1930s England - we finished this one, Angel Coulby & Chiwetel Ejiofor were good, but the plot was a gigantic mess and not much was resolved.  Loved Wunmi Mosaku as the backup singer who comes into her own.
  • Borgia - parts of it work for me, some of the costumes are spectacular, but there's way too much exposition, Cesare looks and acts like a young Sean Penn, and Pope Alexander with a New York accent is just jarring.
  • The Americans - girlchild likes it, I'm not entirely sure. 
  • VEEP - just starting this, so far not too much embarrassment humor
  • Mozart in the Jungle - all of them have interesting flaws, and there's a certain schadenfreude in seeing beautiful people in imperfect lives.
acorn.tv (I got a 3 month sub to try it out)
  • Poldark - Aidan Turner acting moody and shirtless, also pretty costumes, pretty Cornwall, OTT plot...
  • The Blue Rose - a temp and her friends fighting corruption in New Zealand, with a bit by Mark Ferguson
  • Falcón - Spanish police detective in Seviille, actors include Marton Csokas, Hayey Atwell, Santiego Cabera, all looking gorgeous
  • The Clinic - Irish medical clinic soap opera, nicely done, eventually will have a young Aidan Turner as the receptionist
  • Partners in Crime - Agatha Christie's Tommy and Tuppence, looking forward to that!
Other means
  • Underground (WGN) the trailer looks good, and I was annoyed with Turn for so little Aldus Hodge, and I hope it's a great story of slaves freeing themselves
  • Agent Carter - bought season 1 on itunes, and probably will get the second one for female friendship if nothing else

TV binge watched

Mar. 9th, 2016 | 11:59 pm

Now I'm unemployed, I'm watching more TV, any recs or anyone want to talk?
  • Sense8 - Intriguing, didn't get they were all the same age till the end, loved the orgy in the pool (LOVED it), Freema Agyman!, had some issues with the intense violence and bringing a rocket launcher to a gun fight aspect, glad the manic pixie dream girl got to save the day, though it would have been nice not to fade to black while she did it

  • Jessica Jones - noir tropes, revisited. Her agency is magnificent by the end, and Luke Cage, rowr

  • Daredevil - during the gratuitous violence, I played Torus (Tetris in a circle). I do like an evil mastermind who loves his mother.

  • Top of the Lake - avoided a lot of clichés and reveled in some of the others (the female hippie commune). I liked Elisabeth Moss a lot. The middle kept me guessing but the end was pretty formulaic, not much mystery.

  • How To Get Away With Murder - I like the ensemble and the way the characters got revealed, even the frat-boy-type has some redeeming characteristics. And the plot unfolding as well. I hate the fraughtness of the whole thing, every episode threatens them all existentially, I get bored after a while.

that Delicious spam "Meet TulaCo" is an ad

Feb. 18th, 2016 | 10:56 am

My ancient Delicious feeds all blurted out this bizarre entry about Meet TulaCo. Turns out that "Sponsored" means advertising and they inserted it into the RSS of all Delicious accounts. Blrgh. It did remind me to change my password to something long and random.
