help_pakistan is a fandom auction set up to help Pakistan recover from the recent floods, with 180% of normal monsoon season rain. Apparently the causes include deforestation, population growth, and climate change. The community is a nice way to give together.

Fanvid! Love the Way You Lie, The Gay Hobbit Remix - Merry and Pippin instead of Dom and Megan Fox, it's fabulous!


Orlando 'really excited' over baby

Heartthrob Orlando Bloom said that he was "really excited" at the prospect of becoming a father after it was revealed his new wife Miranda Kerr is expecting their first child.

The actor, who was in Munich to start filming The Three Musketeers, said he was looking forward to juggling his career with life as a new parent.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star said: "I'll go home as often as possible. I'm really excited about it, it's great. She'll come out here too."

Late to the party: we saw Inception. We didn't buy most of the premises and the emotional distance, and even Ed got bored with the video-game chases, shootouts, and bombs. Inception is full of hot men (yay!), and Ellen Page and Marion Cotillard (yay!), but wow, it needs lots of fix-it fic, and my slash goggles are apparently non-existent. Eames/Arthur??? Convince me?

Yeah, I'm gonna have a hard time with that one because I didn't see it either. *shrugs* I guess it's all the snapping at each other they have going? And the "my gun is bigger than your gun" part in the warehouse?

Yeah. Though we noticed that Eames didn't have the big gun at the frozen fortress of solitude. Videogame pandering :-/

Hobbit remix video has been taken down. Woe!

I need to donate to the Pakistan appeal, thanks for the reminder.

very odd, it works when I click on it. Try going to youtube and searching for filmdrunkdotcom, that worked for me.

Ah, it's been blocked in my country, that's why I can't see it. Bummer!

I got to see the hobbit remix. Thanks for the heads up on it. It was indeed quite fabulous.

I really like the song but am uneasy, for all the reasons you mentioned earlier, about the whole thing. But once it is about Merry and Pippin, then it is all good.

Well, the words don't work that well with the hobbits, but they are so much fun to watch, I don't care :-D

Eames/Arthur??? Convince me?

It's the teasing and rivalry that they have with each other. Eames is like a little boy on the playground and the way to get the other person he likes attention is to pick on them so they "know he cares."

If I'm honest, I was reading fic about that pairing before I ever saw the movie, so I went in biased. There's definitely tension between them, most likely due competition or maybe a falling out at an earlier job, but I think it could be interpreted as sexual, should someone want to see it that way. Had I not already fallen hard for Arthur/Eames as a pairing before I saw the movie, I might have not made a sexual connection right away. The fic, however, has me convinced. ;-)

Also? Awesome vid! Thanks for the link!

Darn, the vid isn't available to be played in my country, apparently. Ah well...

That's nice news about Orlando and Miranda becoming parents soon.

I've yet to see Inception - perhaps today. The trailer looks exciting.

:D

Thanks for the link to the video! :) I didn't have my slash goggles on either when watching Inception, but sometimes two hot guys is all fandom needs.
