Yep, twice in one day, but I'm still officially off for Memorial Day, so I've got time. Here we go again.

Day 04 - Your favorite show ever - This is a really hard one for me, but I think that I have to say The West Wing. For me, it was the best thing I've ever seen on TV. A smart, funny, brilliantly written and executed work of art. I miss it...I miss Aaron Sorkin and all the wonderful ensemble cast members. If you've never watched it you've missed a wonderful example of what television should be.



Day 05 - A show you hate
- I don't know...Bridezillas maybe. Or any CSI type show that's on now days.

Yep, everyone's doing it, on my flist I can name at least three. I finally snagged this from pat_t . I know some are doing this in random order and some are posting this as a 30 day meme. I just don't think I can commit to posting every day from this list. So I'll also be answering more than one at a time and the order may be a bit random. And so, here is the TV Meme.

Day 01 - A show that should never have been cancelled
- Yeah, I'm going to go with the answer that many others have said before me...Firefly. It's a shame what Fox did to this show. It so deserved more than the half a season it got. Firefly was Whedon's work of art. And poor River deserved a better resolution than she got. But at least they got a movie out of it, that's something.


Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching
- Legend of the Seeker, which unfortunately was recently canceled after its second season...because not enough people were watching. :( 


Day 03 - Your favorite new show (aired this TV season) - I have to say Glee. I didnt start watching it right away, but have been catching up with the show on my PC since it came back from its winter break in April. It's so much better than I expected. I love the storyline, the message, the performances and the music. It's a beautiful show and I'm so happy that its had so much success. And oh yes, Matthew Morrison is seriously hot.

Someday I may get back to posting about Doctor Who and other fandoms...for right now I'm still vidding and working on AS&J fandom stuff.

I've managed to finish another fanvid. This one is set to Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi, the acoustic version. This song seems like such a marvelous fit for the two of them as it describes their circumstances perfectly.

As you've probably already noticed, I'm a big fan of dialogue in vids and I've tried to use the empty spaces in the song to that effect. Not sure I exactly stuck with the theme of the video with all the dialogue I used, but at the time it seemed to fit.

I don't think I'm entirely happy with this vid, but I also don't think I can edit it any more without messing it up. Hopefully, it's good enough to bring enjoyment to some AS&J fans. And so, here it is, the Alias Smith & Jones boys in "Wanted Dead or Alive".

So I've started making icons again, just a few and just one fandom so far, Alias Smith & Jones. I've been posting them on aliassmithjones, but I've decided that I should post them to my journal so I know where they are and can find them easily again in one location. Anyway, here is my Alias Smith & Jones icon dump of everything I've made so far. If you haven't seen them before and want to snag some feel free.

I have hurt my back...bad. For several days I have been unable to perform basic tasks and just barely able to move. Walking is hard and shooting pains through my lower back make it difficult to do anything. I'm off work today as well as yesterday and I really needed to be there as one of my co-workers is gone and I was supposed to cover. But going to work was literally impossible as I'm not even sure I could've made it out to the car, much less into my office and sat at my desk all day. I can't even manage to sit at my own computer. This is the first day I've managed to get my laptop out. So yes, I'm bedridden basically. Hopefully, I will continue to get better throughout the day...please God. Last night I was walking pretty well, but this morning I felt like I lost all progress. Anyway, that's my sob story. Boo...I hate this. I want to be better already.

Yep, all it takes is a new fandom to get you interested in graphics, fanvids, & fanfic again. So here I am after at least two years since I made a vid trying to learn a new program on a new computer, etc...It hasn't been easy, but I'm quite pleased with the result. To make it easier on myself I just took the first episode and worked with that. And so, here is "Against the Grain", my tribute to the Alias Smith & Jones pilot episode.

I have just watched Victory of the Daleks and I don't even know what to say. I mean, what the **** was that anyway? I felt like I was watching Star Wars at times. And did Steven Moffat's Daleks seriously just vaporize RTD's Daleks??? Was that really necessary? And WHAT is up with Amy's memory??? The whole thing was just...just...too much...It's almost like they're trying too hard. And I actually found myself liking the last two episodes a bit...albeit grudgingly.

After this all I can say is that I want my David Tennant and Russell T. Davies back now, please...please...please.

Ten Rules!!!

Sitting here watching Merlin, the series 2 premier, on my US tv.  Quite nice and every bit as good as I remember it being a few months ago when I watched it. Yesterday I watched Sherlock Holmes for the first time and absolutely loved it. I also have a new fandom, Alias Smith & Jones. That's a 1970's Western series and it stars two very good looking young men who were outlaws trying to go straight. It's well written, funny, and dramatic all at the same time. It also ended way too soon due to one of the stars killing himself midway through the second season. Anyway, my vid recs below reflect a few of my new fandoms as well as some of my old ones.

I watched it today...the episode of doom. I seriously was dreading it and was not looking forward to the event at all. But when it really came down to it, I had to watch it. I was pleasantly surprised and have to grudgingly say that I liked it. If I wasn't so tied up in Ten and torn up over losing him, then I would probably really, really have liked it.

Cut for very slight spoilers...Collapse )
