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

Except I'm not using the icon in question because it's spoilery for both BSG & Dollhouse series finales.

so it's here )
hobbitofkobol: (HIMYM robin chilling out)
woohoo Team Galactica won the Team Theme Challenge @ [livejournal.com profile] twelvecolonies!
I'm proud of the fleet :)

I think we really did a good job with the Theme Song. We adapted "I will survive" with our own lyrics and made a music video using footage from the show. I did the editing ;) I think any BSG fan could enjoy watching this? Video contains spoilers up to series finale.

lyrics )

Catching up with Monday TV... so far I've only watched HIMYM and BBT (my priorities) and loved them!

spoilery thoughts )

off to watch Castle now ^^

Status on my BSG auction item: it has shipped and has traveled from California to Philadelphia. Estimated delivery date = Monday. Merchandise description: Costume from TV Show. LOL

Can't remember if I mentioned this here but I landed a 2nd itw for a job! (the one from last week) Itw is next Wednesday. I guess my "spontaneous cover letter" was good enough!

Have started reading the Sookie Stackhouse books. Sometimes listening to the audiobooks instead. A woman narrates the story and her Bill & Sam voices are hilarious (to me). Also, this quote:
"Eric is much better looking than I am," Bill said. "He is more powerful, and I understand sex with him is unforgettable."


I've joined yet another whedonland-like community! It's [livejournal.com profile] himymland and it's focused on - wait for it - How I Met Your Mother! I bet you didn't see that coming, right? lol So please join the fun! I landed in Team Lily&Marshall.

I had other things to write about and forgot. I'm busy writing fic for the fic fest at [livejournal.com profile] whedonland. One is done (Better Off Ted fic!), two to go! One of these is a unlikely crossover with (so far) 3 references to 3 other shows lol.

Oh I know, I'm watching Merlin. It's fun. It makes me say things like "Hey, King Giles, shouldn't you be doing the research about spells instead of letting Gaius do it?" And of course in my mind the only Gaius is Baltar. The next episode I'm watching has Santiago Cabrera, and I knew he was in it, but I didn't know he was playing Lancelot! I find this hilarious for a reason.

Glee is back (for real) tonight!!! Fall season is starting at least!!! yay!!!

1. I'm playing the new Professor Layton game on Nintendo DS and Luke gets to take care of a hamster for a minigame. The goal is to make the hamster exercise because he's fat. And they ask you to name the hamster. Guess how I called him. HINT.

2. Do you like BSG? And awesome icons? That are funny and pretty? Then go vote at [livejournal.com profile] starttheclock's epic 100th challenge! With categories such as Best powerful/well done death or Character Who Would Have the Best Blog!

3. I made 2 BSG fanvids in 3 days. O_o And I'm quite happy with them. The fact that I kept a lot of episodes as avi even though I have the DVDs and knows the show well enough to remember which scenes are more fitting from which episode makes the process much faster.

4. Scenes from the BSG finale with isolated score. Wow.

5. I took this test pretending I was a character from Lie to Me. Scored a bit above average.

6. The Darjeeling Limited is a great movie. It looks gorgeous and I loved the editing. And the music. Surprise!Joe Dassin! lol

7. Awesome pic of Michael Hogan channeling Saul Tigh, cute Twitpic of Alyson&Jason on the set of HIMYM, amazing LOST poster

8. Casting spoilers: I don't really care about the Chuck one and the Dollhouse one made me go "shocking! lolz but awesome"

9. VERY spoilery pics from The Big Bang Theory S3 premiere. LOL at their looks and a slice of DNW.

10. Christopher Moore is doing research for a book in Paris and his blogs are hilarious. Including a reference to Psych! (mispelled "Psyche" and Shawn is mispelled "Sean" but whatever)

I did something stupid with my money but also very awesome. Good thing I'm staying at my parents/don't own a car/etc. at the moment haha.

Hint: it was the last day of the BSG auctions (if I'm not wrong, I actually thought these ended while I was away).

What I DID not buy but had my eyes on had I not won that other thing: Helo's tactical earpiece, Helo's boxing gloves, Helo's tank tops, Anders' Algae Planet outfit, Anders' the Son Also Rises outfit, Kara's retractable chopsticks, Gaeta's New Caprica outfit.

What I did win was a costume worn for at least 3 episodes by a secondary character I love.
This outfit:
- visited the brig several times
- had a lolztastic exchange with Tigh
- was in a fight vs Cylons
- kissed someone
- was in a Raptor with Adama (part of it, my own speculation lol)
- ...

hobbitofkobol: (BSG katee :DD)
so remember how a few hours ago I was ~*subtly*~ trying to make someone create a [livejournal.com profile] whedonland-like BSG community? It worked! [livejournal.com profile] goloptious created [livejournal.com profile] twelvecolonies!!! GO JOIN NOW!!!

The teams are: Galactica (I'm the team leader ^^), Pegasus, Colonial One and Basestar!
Positions of Team Leader are still open for Pegasus and Basestar as far as I know ([livejournal.com profile] xmaidelx if you still want the leadership of Colonial One it's yours!)

If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's very similar to the HP sorting communities. You get sorted into one of the 4 teams and compete in activities such as graphics, writing, games, trivia, etc. No need for special skills, you get points for participation (anonymous when it's graphics & writing) and for voting.

I know many of you are BSG fanatics like me so come have fun with us!

(it's just getting started so there's only the application post for now)
hobbitofkobol: (BoT phil&lem are geniuses)
Please vote at the 2nd round of [livejournal.com profile] benelie's Best Ship of 2008/2009 poll? There are ties.

Spent quite a lot of time making Better off Ted icons, which are now posted.

BSG rewatch with mom: finished S2 today! When Baltar went to confront Adama my mom was mocking him saying "blablablablabla", which was very funny.

That is all.
hobbitofkobol: (LOST juliet)

- vote at my friend [livejournal.com profile] benelie's Best TV ship of 2008/2009 poll (it's like my Hotties poll, but with ships!)
- love TV? love making icons? join [livejournal.com profile] tvpassiton! inspired by [livejournal.com profile] bsgpassiton, it's open to all! (basically the mods pick a theme to pass it on, like rainbow colors, episodic, pass a cap...)

Answers to the Fandom questions meme

1. [livejournal.com profile] benelie asked me: As you finished FNL, tell what're your hopes for next season!

answer + 10 more questions )

Because of [livejournal.com profile] hopelessfangirl I'm listening to the SFU OST and this song still makes me wanna cry :((
hobbitofkobol: (MOVIES star trek scotty finds this excit)
[Error: unknown template qotd]

My favorites are all listed!

#1 is... Battlestar Galactica *gasps* yeah try not to die of shock
#2 is Firefly/Serenity
both are among my favorite movies/shows EVER anyway

I guess #3 would be Star Wars, can't deny I grew up watching the Original Trilogy, but I don't really like episode I and II (and yet they feature Ewan McGregor!). And there are so many prequels and sequels and comics and cartoons and stuff, sometimes with different canon!

I'd never really watched Star Trek (except for a few DS9 episodes) before seeing the new movie... which I loved, but it's too fresh to be compared to anything.

I saw the Alien movies when I was quite young ("scary" movies never scared me) and liked them very much but it's been a long time since I saw one.

Not mentioned in the list: Galaxy Quest!!! mmm am I forgetting sth? I don't think so...
hobbitofkobol: (DOLLHOUSE sierra fangirl)
Taking a break from editing my BSG videos (yes, I still have more to upload! if you missed it, I posted the press conference this morning) to post my reaction about the latest episode of Dollhouse.

1x11 Briar Rose )

hobbitofkobol: (BSG tigh omgods)


also, a rant )

"deeper" thoughts maybe later?
hobbitofkobol: (BSG head!six/Baltar)
I've decided to start a meme...

On this big finale day, let's celebrate BSG. If you see this on your f-list:
- quote the show
- and/or post a cap of one of your favorite scenes

Sharon: It's what you said at the ceremony before the attack, when Galactica was being decommissioned. You gave a speech, it sounded like it wasn't the one you prepared. You said that humanity was a flawed creation, and that people still kill one another for petty jealousy and greed. You said that humanity never asked itself why it deserved to survive. Maybe you don't.

Home, part 2

PS: omg guess who just knocked on my door? UPS guy!!! it's my Baltar leaflet from the auction!!!! *goes to pen it*

I only watched the last 3 minutes of the Last Frakkin' Special for now because the rest of it is spoilery for the finale... it's basically the cast saying what they'll miss and what the show means to them. It made me bawl like a baby.

So here it is, guaranteed 100% spoiler-free!

hobbitofkobol: (BSG baltar lab)
Chances that I'm gonna spend next weekend in bed feeling blue and crying: very high.

There's only one double episode left, idk how I'm going to handle this, you guys. :( It's like reading the final chapters of Deathly Hallows for the first time, or the first of the multiple endings of Return of the King.

This week I only managed to hold back tears until the end of the... "Previously on" sequence. FAIL. And I closed my eyes waiting for the drums but there was no montage lol.

comments about Daybreak part 1, spoilers obviously )
hobbitofkobol: (BSG Gaius Jesus Baltar)
Reposting from [livejournal.com profile] battlestar_blog because this is pretty amazing. Who cares about Emmys now? lol

A 'Battlestar Galactica' panel discussion at the United Nations

On March 17, there will be a "Battlestar" retrospective at the U.N. in New York and a panel discussion of how the show examined issues such as "human rights, children and armed conflict, terrorism and human rights and reconciliation and dialogue among civilizations and faith," according to Sci Fi.

The "Battlestar" contingent on the panel will consist of executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, as well as stars Mary McDonnell (who plays president Laura Roslin on the show) and Edward James Olmos (Admiral William Adama).

UN representatives on the panel are Radhika Coomaraswamy, special representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict; Craig Mokhiber, deputy director of the New York office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights; and Robert Orr, assistant secretary-general for policy planning, executive office of the Secretary-General.

The panel will be moderated by "Battlestar" fan Whoopi Goldberg.

The invitation-only panel will take place at 7 p.m. March 17 in the U.N.'s Economic and Social Council Chamber, three days before the Sci Fi show's series finale.

A Sci Fi representative says that the network will record the session and a transcript will be made. "Once the content becomes available, we will let the fans know," the representative said.

Two more BSG links:
- report and videos of the premiere of the Battlestar music ballet in Hagen. It looks and sounds amazing. Diaspora Oratorio never fails to make me cry.
- [livejournal.com profile] benelie made "7 reasons to love our BSG boys" picspam (warning: may cause high body temperature)

ETA: New round for the Fandom Steel Cage Match March Madness! Mal lost the last round by FOUR votes. Damn.
My votes:
- Barney Stinson (that guy's awesome, and like I said before, Jon Stewart is NOT fictional, so his presence doesn't make sense in the 1st place)
- Seeley Booth (does House/Hugh Laurie need to win everything? boooooring)
- Ten (see? no revenge from me. Because I loooove Ten even though I voted for Mal last round. And does Spn need to win every internet poll ever? boooooring)
- Veronica, because she's the only female character left! And kicks ass. (ILU Spike, sorry)
