hobbitofkobol: (MOVIES SoM I'm an angel)
I posted icons, for the 1st time in... 9 months. Mostly shows I needed icons for and couldn't find any I liked lol. And some Lost icons I'd been sitting on for months.

Sean Harry just announced that EJO will be a guest at Invasion next year. Duuuude. Just as I was thinking "um, not that excited about this one, not enough BSG guests." Now that's 2 I've never met + 1 from Caprica + Clea Duvall who was on everything ever. So I'm thinking Echo-2 + Invasion next year. I'd really like to go to Basauricon 2.0 in Spain too because helloooo Katee+Trucco. Is it 2011 yet? 2010 is a bit boring for me :(

So yeah, still need a job like woah. I got an email a few days ago from a company saying they wanted to talk to me on the phone following my application and they sent me really detailed information about the company and the job. So I emailed back saying I was still very interested and was available all days this week and the next and gave my landline number so that we could arrange a time and date for the phone itw. But still no news now! Frustrating. It's actually a job that's really not in my usual area (which is food industry) but still in marketing and it sounds interesting.

the ADJECTIVE meme

oh and there's this one too, if one word is not enough lol

hobbitofkobol: (MOVIES how to train your dragon)
Movie meme:
Comment with “SHOWTIME!” and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your Livejournal with your favorite films of theirs.

I chose to mostly interpret this as "favorite movie in which these actors happen to star", not as "movie in which I like their performance best" if that makes sense.

[livejournal.com profile] marshmallow gave me:

The fellas:
01 - Jake Gyllenhaal : Brokeback Mountain (I also want to say Donnie Darko aaaaahhhhhhh)
02 - Morgan Freeman : Se7en
03 - Joseph Gordon-Levitt : Inception
04 - Viggo Mortenson : The Lord of the Rings
05 - Edward Norton : American History X
06 - Ewan McGregor : Moulin Rouge! (though my favorite performance of his is still Trainspotting)
07 - Brad Pitt : (lol his imdb page lists 28(!!!) in development projects) tough, he's been in a lot of movies I love... I've already said Se7en above... maybe Twelve Monkeys?
08 - Hugh Grant : Four Weddings and a Funeral (I'm not sure which one I love best, this one or Love Actually)
09 - Jason Bateman : Arrested Development: the movie Up in the Air
10 - Paul Rudd : Romeo + Juliet

The ladies:
01 - Kristen Bell : Fanboys (I've only seen her in 2 movies)
02 - Eva Green : Casino Royale
03 - Jennifer Connelly : A Beautiful Mind. Wow, I actually hate that movie. But apparently it's the only one I've seen of hers!
04 - Jane Lynch : The 40 Year Old Virgin. I've seen her a lot on TV but not in many movies!
05 - Tina Fey : Mean Girls
06 - Kate Winslet : Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2nd place: Finding Neverland)
07 - Gwyneth Paltrow : Se7en
08 - Cate Blanchett : The Lord of the Rings
09 - Nicole Kidman : Moulin Rouge!
10 - Julianne Moore : Children of Men

+ one picture from the France 98 football game )
hobbitofkobol: (MOVIES inception JGL suit up)
I saw Inception today (and in English! score!) and LOVED it. There's nothing I didn't like about it. (maybe except like [livejournal.com profile] gabsy said, what kind of name is Mal for a woman??? haha). Everything is pretty (scenery, special effects that serve the story, music, editing, JGL in a suit...), it's a complex story but not too confusing, the cast is amazing... I want to see it again! Was sad when it ended because it was over.

a music meme I snagged from [livejournal.com profile] evilblacksheep and [livejournal.com profile] benelie

Name your top 10 most played bands on iTunes or Last.FM :

1. The Beatles
2. Bear McCreary
3. Robbie Williams
4. Glee Cast
5. Bénabar
6. Jason Mraz
7. Howard Shore
8. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Cast

Answer the questions using only userpics.

icons! )

Have seen Chuck (fun!!!), HIMYM (meh, though it had some good moments) and TBBT (aww Sheldon). Now hurry up, Castle download! Need my Fillion&Trucco fix!

Started packing for the London/Echo-1 trip. Because yes, it takes me 2 days for my brain to remember everything I need to bring.

Speaking of Echo-1, anyone got questions for Dichen Lachman, Miracle Laurie, Fran Kranz or Tahmoh Penikett? I can totally make [livejournal.com profile] benelie ask them. :p
hobbitofkobol: (CHUCK awesome is thinking)

The Super Cool NON-FANDOM Friending Meme

hobbitofkobol: (MERLIN pretty smiling gwen)
This is the list of metacritic.com's Best-Reviewed Wide-Release Films of the Decade 2000-09.

1. Italicize the movies you watched.
2. Bold your favourites.
3. Strike the ones you watched and disliked.
4. Leave as is movies you haven’t seen.
5. Post your answers.

the list )

I'm reading random articles at tvtropes.org, it's quite fun and addictive and holy crap I opened dozens of tabs and ended up reading them for hours.

funny excerpts )
hobbitofkobol: (COMM abed&troy shenanigans)
I removed my brace today (doctor advised to keep it 10 days at least, it's been 2 weeks). It feels a bit weird, it hurts a bit but in a different way as before, I think it's plain induced by wearing the brace lol. It feels so good to type like a normal person with both hands and all!

I got 2 calls from recruitment agencies that were interested in my profile. They both told me I should hear from the company that hired them soon. One call was today so it's fresh but the other one was Tuesday and still no call so I'm wondering what that means. :( Especially since they told me they want to fill the position as soon as possible. :(

from [livejournal.com profile] fannish5

List 5 fictional doctors you'd want treating you. (Or not.)

- Gregory House: I wouldn't want to have to interact with him but at least I'd get the right diagnosis.
- John Dorian (Scrubs): because of his bedside manner and we could geek out about random stuff or watch TV to distract me
- Simon Tam (Firefly): because he's pretty
- John Carter (ER): because he's good in stressful & extreme situations (Darfur anyone?) and I ♥ him
- Captain Awesome (Chuck): because he's awesome, duh! And a surgeon, right? I needed one of those on my list. (what is Simon's specialty?)

I'm sad about not having any women on this list. Almost included Cristina Yang but then I thought of Awesome and he's nicer to talk to haha.

- Jack Shephard (Lost): omg stop projecting your daddy/island/Kate issues on my case and stop crying
- Sherman Cottle (BSG): this is a non-smoking area, thank you
- Ethan Rom (Lost): just too creepy
- The Todd (Scrubs): sexual innuendos and painful high-fives, no thanks
- Dr Robert (BSG): in case I'm from a planet he doesn't like

*PS: isn't this quote a rip-off from Arrested Development? only with pie instead of sandwich? whatever, you're still awesome, Community
hobbitofkobol: (BTVS giles + TV)
Thank you all for your kind comments on my last entry. ♥

So yes, I have a job itw in Paris next Thursday. And another one near Le Mans on Tuesday (a 2 1/2 hours drive, ugh). I hope one of them will turn out well!

Meanwhile, a TV meme I stole from [livejournal.com profile] hopelessfangirl

questions&answers )

I'm still playing a lot of Beatles Rock Band and getting better (it's getting better all the time) at it. I can play all the songs in medium level for guitar and bass and get 92 to 100%. I even tried to play a bit of bass in hard level and for some of the songs it was okay, I need to get used to moving my left hand. You know what's annoying? When you miss ONE chord in the whole song. Oh and when you get 100% at a guitar solo and are all proud of yourself and then bam! Somehow you miss an easy chord right after that.

I saw that at [livejournal.com profile] stellypippin's and couldn't resist of course.

20 Question Beatle Survey

from How I Met Your Mother to Nathan Fillion )
hobbitofkobol: (BBT what to do when bored)
1. Reply to this post saying, "I'm a freak bitch, baby" "Bang zoom! I'm getting a muffin!" and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

[livejournal.com profile] hopelessfangirl picked these for me

by [livejournal.com profile] jennymacca
my keywords: BEATLES music geniuses at work
because it's a cute pic and it portrays the most brilliant musical partnership of ALL TIME. ALL TIME.

by [livejournal.com profile] iconseeyou
my keywords: LOST confused lostday
because LOST is coming back next week and I'll probably need this icon everytime. And it's Claire & I didn't have any icons of her.

by [livejournal.com profile] nowgold
my keywords: ANGEL dance of joy
because it's a shiny colorful icon, it's Lorne and it's the Dance of Joy from Pylea! What's not to like?

by [livejournal.com profile] girlyevil
my keywords: AD like a cat
because Arrested Development is the most brilliant comedy ever and these two guys are the most ridiculous characters of the show. And it's such a funny scene/storyline.

by [livejournal.com profile] ohfreckle
my keywords: GLEE cowboy kurt
because I needed a Kurt icon and this one is simple and pretty and in my head it says "my name is Kurt and I'm awesome, deal with it"

and btw icon 1 + icon 5 = )
hobbitofkobol: (AD like a cat)

from Arrested Development to Gjokaj, Enver )

In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer.

and now something amusing...

ship me meme

ok I've seen HIMYM & Chuck so far (so I'm available to talke about them hehe), now off to see TBBT!

Anyone else find it amusing that as people who don't live in North America we're not supposed to have seen last night's HIMYM and yet I was able to buy "Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit" from iTunes France? I mean, it shouldn't be available internationally unless they make it so (for instance I was curious and wanted to check out the Chuck iPhone app and I can't access it).

Icon meme

3. Which one you think needs explaining
4. The userpic that makes you laugh

Ask me a fandom, and I will tell you:

+ Runner-up
+ Honorable mention(s)
+ Crack pairing(s)
+ Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't
hobbitofkobol: (MERLIN arthur doesn't like this)
On Saturday my dad was 30 minutes late for lunch after work because he had to type sth and it took him forever and he still couldn't make it look good. Somehow I had a feeling that him complaining about not knowing how to use tables on Word and showing me the result was gonna end up with me typing it for him... And sure thing my mom gave me the sheet about 30 minutes ago, at 9:30pm on Sunday night of course. Oh parents, I wonder how you're functioning (computer, TV, VCR, etc.) when I'm not living here.

Got this meme from [livejournal.com profile] malicat... great excuse for a picspam of hot guys

Every girl needs a hot character to go on an adventure with --

Note: I tried to pick only one character per fandom and one character per actor

1. Who would you lounge with and read a good book on a rainy afternoon )

Emmys day! I do not care much for the drama categories but I'm rooting for NPH and Jim Parsons! Wish I could watch live as there's gonna be a Dr Horrible performance of some kind!
hobbitofkobol: (TB bill is so lame)
I'm all caught up with True Blood! And love it. I spent a lot of time hunting for icons... but it's always hard to find pretty ones when you're just getting into a fandom.
to sum up...
♥: Jason, Eric, Godric, Pam, Lafayette, Jessica, Hoyt, Andy, Terry
Not sure: Sam (sweet but a bit boring), Tara (did not like her in S2)
Meh: Bill, Sookie though they have some funny moments, Arlene, Eggs
Hates: Maryann (more like: I love hating her, and did I mention how fabulous Michelle Forbes is? she's so perfect in this), Tara's mom, the Newlins (in a I love hating them way too), Hoyt's mom

I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] green_queen
