Season 3 didn't start very strong, imo, but I watched the first eight now and they get better and better :)

schneefink: (FF Kaylee in hammock)
On Thursday we had a power outage from noon to nine in the evening. It was mostly boring after it went dark. We had some candles in the house and two flashlights, so I went running and then knitted a bit, and in the end I had a surprisingly pleasant evening. And the heating works again!
Unfortunately my brain apparently chose to ignore the day and things got hectic on Friday and Saturday. Extra late fees for the library because I forgot are annoying.

Then yesterday I had the first birthday party with friends in years. The years before I always felt like I didn't know enough people to invite, or didn't know what to do. This year I just invited the debate club and some other friends to my house to play Werewolf. We played for five hours with fifteen people, it was a lot of fun! I even won as last surviving werewolf once.
Today I'm predictably sleepy and my brain is slow, but I made it through 3 hours of OTW meetings.

I found a pretty graphic on Tumblr: Spaceship appreciation. What are the second and third spaceships? I recognize all the others. (Although for some reason Serenity and the Falcon don't appear anymore, they were there a few hours ago...)
I wish I was awake enough to write about why "you can't take the sky from me" is such an ironic sentence in combination with spaceships. Regardless of how you interpret sky a spaceship is one of the most unsafe modes of transportation, and it just needs one missing replacement part to strand you on a planet or kill you somewhere in space where nobody will ever find you.

I've been following [personal profile] layla's participation in the Worldbuilding Blogfest, and by "following" I mean "asking many questions." It's been a lot of fun, and I really like what she came up with. Islands full of people with wings! Worldbuilding is even more fun when I don't have to worry about annoying details destroying my own plot. That's not quite true, I miss it. Maybe I should try it again, just for fun.
One of the first things I did was cast an SGA AU, btw. Somehow I worry what this fandom has done to my brain.

Because I don't have the energy for anything productive today anyway I watched some Farscape episodes.

I vaguely remember seeing a few episodes of Gundam Wing on TV many years ago. Not too many years ago, because I think I did read some fanfic, but very little. Then a few days ago I found a rec for a Stargate/GW crossover fic and I decided to watch it again. Great decision! I didn't remember it being this good.

NO SPOILERS beyond episode 24, please! )

Other TV shows I'm currently watching (or not):
Borgen )

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries )

Elementary )

Farscape )


Of course right when I finally decide to go to bed [community profile] atlantisbigbang goes live. To sleep or not to sleep...

Today I wasted two hours driving through town because friends forgot to tell me that they'd postponed the party again. To cheer myself up I decided to ignore my to-do-list and the time and watch some more Farscape. (Even though Farscape is not exactly the most cheerful show.)

2.6 Picture If You Will )
2.7 Home on the Remains )

2.8 Dream a Little Dream )

I love writing episode reviews. Not only do they help me get my thoughts in order, I can also reread them later and remember all the things I loved about a particular episode. And it's useful for finding particular scenes again later.

Still ridiculously in love with this show. Especially Moya. Best spaceship ever y/y?
This should be a thing, people discussing which spaceship is the best. I mean obviously it wouldn't be a fair discussion because Moya would win, but it would still be fun. Or I think the TARDIS is alive, too? They should hang out together! There should be a vid about ALL the awesome spaceships. In fact if I knew the perfect song I would pay for this at the next fandom helps auction. Suggestions very welcome.

1.20 The Hidden Memory )

1.21 Bone to be Wild )

1.22 Family Ties )

2.01 Mind the Baby )

There are many great scenes and moments I forgot to mention here because it's past midnight, but in conclusion: Farscape is amazing and Moya is the best <3

Look, I now have a pretty Moya icon! *points*

Fair warning, this journal will contain a lot of Farscape squee in the next time. This show! I love it. I have found the best way to watch it is with my big plush monkey: first because I forgot to turn on the heating in the room, and then because it's great to have something to squeeze every five minutes.

I'm surprised because I heard a lot about Firefly and how it's the best SF show ever, but I like Farscape far better and I almost never heard of it. Firefly had good worldbuilding and some great characters, but Farscape not only has great characters, it also has good storytelling. Firefly had very few episodes I unconditionally enjoyed (I can only think of "Ariel", and "Out of Gas" and "War Stories" were also good), but Farscape constantly has episodes that keep me on the edge of my seat because they're so exciting, have good character stuff and some sweet and some funny bits, and nothing obviously stupid that throws me out of my enjoyment.

Some thoughts about what I've seen so far:

I spent half my day today watching Farscape and I don't hardly regret it at all.

This show is crazy; spoilers as far as 1.10 )

No spoilers please! :)

I have started watching Farscape *headdesk* It's not like I have dozens of other things (both non-fannish and fannish) to do, preferably soon, in some cases definitely-should-have-done-this-months-ago. And so much stuff to catch up on after the skiing holidays (they were great!) And yes, I promised L. I would watch Doctor Who next and was recced Buffy several times, and my brother and I had agreed to try and watch a series together next month so we can discuss it together. Also I should re-watch both SGA and Leverage for my next writing projects (sga_genficathon and timetraveler!Parker, whee!) and did I mention I do not have the time?
I have no self-control.

But it's fun! Crazy, crazy fun. I have watched five episodes and already there were doppelgangers and time shenanigans. My favorite episode so far is "Exodus from Genesis", spoiler ) I like the characters and their interactions and I'm looking forward to more information about their background (except Crichton's. Aliens are much more interesting.) Btw, I am extremely unsurprised that one of the places where I first heard about Farscape is [community profile] kink_bingo. I'm looking forward to the fic/vids/fanart once I've finished watching.

I hate feeling guilty because I'm procrastinating and not getting things done -.- I promised LB that I would get up early and go register for sports courses at university with him tomorrow (he wants to leave at 4:30! Crazy!), but at least he bribed me with chocolate. Mmm, chocolate. And now sleeep (seriously, stop it, brain, you can have another episode tomorrow, I promise. As soon as at least five things on this ****-long list get done. And stop thinking of Parker on Moya, it's a time machine not a TARDIS.)
