some moderately random fannish links

Orlando, Elijah and Liv as if in Classical European Paintings Includes Orlando in Renaissance garb, Elijah as a Regency gent (he should do more costume dramas!) and Liv in something very frothy that might be Georgian but maybe I'm dreaming and it's Victorian.

Elijah & Zooey Deschanel at CCTV awardsElijah's doing a ton of PR for his new series, Wilfred (starts on the 23rd on FX TV US) Tons of good links on Always & Forever // Elijah Wood, but my fave, for Ces and ana: Elijah and Zooey Deschanel at the Critics' Choice TV Awards from eyeprime.net

Sean Bean also around doing Game of Thrones PR lots of links on The Mighty Bean, the skype interviews are particularly fun to watch.

And I'm willing to give Peter Jackson, Fran, Philippa, et al., the benefit of the doubt on Hobbit movie casting. I didn't think I'd like the Haldir changes in LOTR, or Arwen, and I now love them both. Making The Hobbit a little bit less of a Boy's Own Story is fine by me.

WH Auden seems to have written a really explicit poem, The Platonic Blow. It reminds me of excellent slash fic, in quatrain rhymes.

ETA to fix mighty bean link, thanks splix!

Oh, those portraits are sooo cool! Thanks for that.

Your Mighty Bean stuff links to the paintings URL, though.

That poem!! My word. :D

I fixed the link, thanks so much for mentioning it!

That poem is pretty damn explicit, yes.

Lovely classical pics. Liv isn't there though - are you looking at Catherine Zeta-Jones?

And Elijah & Zooey, talk about life imitating art! Hee.

Yeah, that is apparently not Liv :-(

Tickles me that Elijah & Zooey finally put their big blue eyes together.

Those classic paintings of Elijah and Orlando are pretty amazing. I also loved Gillian Anderson.

And I'm willing to give Peter Jackson, Fran, Philippa, et al., the benefit of the doubt on Hobbit movie casting.
Just want to thank you for this. I wasn't around for all the Arwen hate before the trilogy came out, but this is making me think it must have been something similar and I haven't liked it. Adding a female elf (an elf who isn't supposed to be anyone's love interest on top of that) isn't the end of the freakin' world.

I might feel differently if I cared more intensely, and sometimes I wish I did care more, about everything. But then some people hate Peter Jackson for what they feel was ruining Sam in ROTK, which I can't see at all.

I do care and I'm still not upset. But I also don't hate her and I think some of it comes from their feelings about the actress on top of not wanting a female character added to the film.
