I was idly thinking to myself about how teenage girls on US TV shows all seem to have the same colour bedrooms. I haven't researched or checked this this in any way, but I wondered if that was reflective of what I perceive to be the predominant colour in most houses (let alone teenage bedrooms) that magnolia probably was the boring norm.

So just out of academic curiosity:

Comment on this post with the word THUNDERCATS (don't ask me why it’s that) and I will choose six interests from your profile. You will then explain what they mean/why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

[livejournal.com profile] arabian picked for me:

1. Astronomy: One of things my dad and I have in common is a long line of random obsessive interests, I've had various fannish obsessions and a fascination with stone circles, he's had stone painting, kite-making and astronomy (amongst other things), thus I spent a large lump of my childhood looking through telescopes and lying in the back garden in sleeping bags watching meteor showers. I loved it. I would have loved to have been an astronomer, but I was never going to be good enough at maths. It still fascinates me though and if there's a documentary on about the big bang or coronal mass ejections, I'm probably watching it.

2. Cats: I've been surrounded by cats all my life. There is one trying to get my attention right now... I’m not sure what I can say about them though. I do like their sense of independence and the way they look at you as if they think you are a complete idiot. Because they are probably right.

3. Depeche Mode: I have 27 years of loyal service, I can’t say that for anyone else! The new album was a bit disappointing, but a weak DM album is still better than anything else, so there.

4. Lord of the Rings: I first read it when I was about 11, I think, and I’ve read it a couple of times since though not recently. I kind of wish I hadn't read it so early as it's rather spoilt the whole epic fantasy genre for me. However, as much as I love the book very deeply, but I can’t bring myself to be fannish about it. Somehow, I find the thought of applying the normal fan activities to Tolkien somewhat sacrilegious. However, I don’t believe this is particularly because I hold the book in such high regard (though it is a bit), I think it’s because I find writing so intimate and I can’t bring myself to meddle in one author’s personal world (one jokey Balrog story notwithstanding) and I'd feel the same about Anne McCaffrey’s worlds or the Mists of Avalon.

5. Mythology: I went though a phase of reading a lot of Norse, Welsh and Irish myths, plus I love folklore and old country rituals (why will no one ever let me watch the morris dancers???). I think this interest tries in very much with my interest in witchcraft and the stone circle thing, I’ve always been attracted to ‘mystical’ and occulty things, though I am a healthy sceptic and I know most of it is utter nonsense. It occurred to me a long while after the fact (I was quite young) to realise that the reason I liked Robin of Sherwood so much when I was 10, was not because I liked Robin Hood stories, but because I loved the magical aspect. Herne and that forest folk magic was what I liked best. Hence I went on to read a few Dennis Wheatley novels. Um.

6. Witchcraft: I'm not a witch, but I wanted to be once. Then I asked myself honestly one day, 'what do I actually believe?' and the honest answer was that I was an atheist. That killed all that stone dead. I still find it all fascinating though and if someone put a gun to my head and told me to pick a religion, I would choose Wicca for it's respect for the natural world even though I am dubious about how much of it was made up in the 1920's.

There was no Glastonbury Festival this year, so to fill the void, I made my own!

Well, sort of. There was only one band...

Evidence of my insanity within... )

Wow.

Did I really spend practically all of Christmas Day watching Screenwipe on YouTube? Good grief, I did.

Now I have my computer back and working better, I can get on with this:

First up,[livejournal.com profile] tabitha666 asked for the Buffy and Angel fight in Becoming Part II:

Under here... )

Anyone still interested in prompting me to do a scene from something in Barbie, go ahead!

In the absence of having else to say (nothing’s happened here, except the death of my parent’s cat), I thought I might reveal a little sneak peak of something I’ve been working on and maybe ask you all to set me a challenge to fill the time before anything decent is back on the telly.

About a year ago I had the sudden urge to recreate Black Widow as a ‘live’ action comic using Barbie, Ken, CY, Sindy Numan™ and other similar dolls. I got the script done, created all the panels, bought in props as needed (mucho £££), built sets, started the photography, then it kind of stalled for various reasons (lighting issues (a bulb on the fairy lights went and I can’t be arsed to look through the Christmas dec boxes for a replacement), ‘flooring’ and working out how to build something that looked vaguely like a dumpster…).

For anyone familiar with the story, here’s a sample panel from the project:Snip! )

Anyway, I need to get the project finished and I need some motivation, so this is where the 'challenge me' bit comes in.

Give me a moment from the following and I will try to 'recreate it' in Barbie for a laugh*:

Buffy
Angel
Supernatural
The Vampire Diaries
Lost
Dark Angel
Roswell
Dead Like Me
Anything films etc that I've seen that don't have armour in them ETA: or period costume.

Plus!

I might be open to having a crack at:

Doctor Who (if I can have a screencap)
Scenes from fics (please supply link)

*bearing in mind the limitations of Barbie and her chums, i.e. most aren’t that bendy, monsters are tricky (though I think I could do Lorne and Illyria) and older people don’t seem to exist. I do at least have a number of male dolls (plus a Spike). I will otherwise have to work with what I have.

I'm bored, Ebayed out and my [livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends story has stalled.

What mischief can I fill an evening with?

Oh and is LJ doing strange to anyone else's layout? Is LJ telling me I really should update it?

Did I mention that I'm bored?

Bored. I'm even Ebay'd out, so it must be serious.

I am so bored!

I have about three Christmas cards to write and then that's Christmas sorted, I'm snowed in (more or less) because of my cold, the cat keeps eating my puzzle and Dollhouse is still downloading.

I want something spontaneously creative to do!
