I am posting this entry now (instead of tomorrow like I planned originally) solely to post this link: http://wellknowwhenwegetthere.blogspot.com/2009/08/sincerely-john-hughes.html
I saw it on my flist earlier today and clicked it and I just fucking cried my eyes out. This is beautiful and whether you care about john hughes or his films at all or even know who he is. I still think you should read this. Everyone should. What a lovely kind hearted man he was. and It really showed in his movies which were beneath the 80's style dramatics were really earnest and sweet. RIP John Hughes, your creativity and heart will forever be missed.

I finally saw North & South today. It was a beautiful drama and I thank everyone who recommended it to me because I thoroughly enjoyed it! I've seen hell and it's white. Pure white. )
The thing I love MOST about North & South is as much as it is a love story and it is a very beautiful love story it's also becomes that much more, because of it's very rich setting, supporting cast and conflicts that are not entirely centered around the couple or romance and feel very real for the time period.

I also started watching Skins sometime yesterday and I'm on episode four right now in the first season and this is already shaping up to me one of my most favorite shows ever and possibly the best teen centric show I've ever seen. It helps that Skins has a realness to it that other teen shows lack even while being really surreal or crazy sometimes. I cant wait to watch more and at this rate I think I may even watch S3 despite it having an all new cast.

I'll wrap up this hasty entry by saying I changed my layout the other day. and also my profile. So check those out, if you like. http://sisterjune.livejournal.com/profile

Doing a meme since I havent done one in a while.

Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, answer these questions. You can't use the band that I used. Try not to repeat a song title. It's a lot harder than you think! Repost as "my life according to (band name)"

Pick your Artist: Gravenhurst

Are you a male or female? Diane
Describe yourself: She Dances (then she dances, skirt swaying in the half light, she dances, white blossom in the black sky. "i need new clothes" she thinks, "new skin, I mind I can bear to live in. to live in")
How do you feel? Underfoot
Describe where you currently live? Western Lands
If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Down River
Your favorite form of transportation: Tunnels
Your best friend is: Herne the Hunter
You and your best friends are: Animals
What's the weather like?: Flashlight Seasons
If your life was a TV show, what would it be called? Internal Travels
What is life to you? Hourglass
Your relationship: A Call to Arms
Your fear: The Silent Age
Thought for the Day: Trust (is hard to come by these days)
How I would like to die: Ice On Black Water
My soul's present condition: Damage
My motto: I turn my face to the forest floor

This was strangely very fun and also surprisingly therapeutic. Of course this IS one of my most favorite bands. but now I have strong desire to do this with Arcade Fire songs next. We'll see.

For shits and giggles I'll tag some people to do this: [livejournal.com profile] sibarita, [livejournal.com profile] meganbmoore, [livejournal.com profile] kaede_hikari, [livejournal.com profile] bakabanri, [livejournal.com profile] ashkt, [livejournal.com profile] jigglykat, [livejournal.com profile] araanaz9, [livejournal.com profile] cranberrysheep, [livejournal.com profile] cobblestones, [livejournal.com profile] dioraddictxx, [livejournal.com profile] ohvienna, [livejournal.com profile] arcady, [livejournal.com profile] tardisdoll
of course participation is entirely optional

Also in case anyone wants to add me there, I have a dreamwidth: http://queenofhearts.dreamwidth.org/
I have successfully (mostly) and with great effort managed to transfer an lj layout onto my dw account, via tampering with some very complicated code. No I did not suddenly become advanced at html programming over night. I used this: http://antagonist.dreamwidth.org/619.html very handy tutorial. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to import an lj layout onto dreamwidth.

I also have at least 1 dreamwidth invite code so if anyone wants that then say so. first come first serve, unless someone I really like comes after you asking for it in which case tough shit. I few people I like that much though so odds are in your favor.

Playing For Change | Song Around The World "Stand By Me" from Concord Music Group on Vimeo.

I think everyone should watch this. I find it a nice remedy to the all the cynicism I run into on a daily basis. It's a beautiful world people, if you look hard enough.

PS. I will be updating with a proper post later on, either today or at the end of the week. There are some flist related things I need to address.
PPS. today a girl during my lab shift asked me for help and turned out her name was "Stephanie Bollinger" I had to try so hard not to laugh. She kept giving me a strange look which I think means I didnt succeed very well. Clearly fandom is addling my brain.
