so [livejournal.com profile] superfrayed and I are still trying to pick our ideal Alcide and thanks to your suggestions I am now making a poll!

We have... 10 actors to choose from. Of course I'm including a reminder of what the character looks like and pictures of the candidates.

Note: this is fantasy casting. Who cares if said actor would never be on TV or is already on another show.

list with lots of pics & poll )

I posted another BSG fanvid, I made it for the vid challenge at [livejournal.com profile] twelvecolonies.

It's Kara-centric and the music is Rehab (Glee version) and it's not really to be taken seriously lol. You can watch or download here.

btw if you can't see videos on LJ right now, it's because they temporarily disabled embedded content, they say so here

So I'm done with Club Dead, book 3 of the Sookie Stackhouse novels. I wonder how much of True Blood season 3 is gonna be like this book. I read Alcide will be in it of course. So I was wondering (with some friends, you know who you are), who do you picture as Alcide? I'm not going to mention the ideas I already had pitched to me because they could influence you.

As a reminder, here's how Alcide is physically described.

He was huge. His eyes were green. His tousled hair was curly and thick and black as pitch. His brain buzzed and pulsed with energy; kind of a red effect. Werewolf.
Alcide Herveaux looked plenty tough. He was big as a boulder, with biceps that I could do pull-ups on. He would have to shave a second time if he planned on going out in the evening. He would fit right in on a construction site or a wharf.

Plus, you know, he's protective and warm (vs the cold vampires) and likes leaning on walls while crossing his arms and is as tall as Eric (good luck with that). And can pull off a southern accent I guess, though this part can always be changed, or learned.

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!!!

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

So yesterday I was feeling a bit sick so I lied down and finally decided to watch more True Blood (had seen the pilot). While I was not completely sold on the pilot, by episode 1x02 I was addicted (maybe I was in the appropriate mood for it?). So I basically spent my Sunday watching the show, ending season 1 at... 3am or so lol. And now the reason I'm not watching more? I only had season 1 on my hard drive and am dlding 2x01 right now hehe.

Anyway... my random thoughts about the show and its characters )
