Doctor Who – The End of Time Part 2, OR Weepfest 2010 (Spoilers-desu!)

January 2, 2010

'He will knock four times'

Yesterday, January 1st, I witnessed what will probably be one of, if not the most, traumatic TV events EVER. (Won’t be bested unless Eric Kripke decided to kill off Sam+Dean when SPN finishes, whenever that will be.) It literally made me so sad, everytime I even think about the episode, or the last 20 minutes at least, I will tear up, and I will have to distract myself from it somehow. It’s actually painful to think about… yes its just a TV show, BUT its the end of an era, and its the end of one Doctors life basically…. it feels like someones died, we loved him that much, and I know people will agree. I know boys who cried at this, who don’t even like Dr Who that much lol.

I warn ye all, spoilers lie ahead, so those good little Americans+Australians+so forth who haven’t downloaded it and watched already, don’t read ahead if you want to remain innocent to the details of Tennant’s final two episodes. Though I’m really focussing on one lol, the 2nd, as the 1st was a pretty big let down, if I’m completely honest and don’t try to lie to myself, Tennant + Cribbins + Simm were all brilliant ofc, but it was just so over the top… over done… overblown… whatever the words… it was too big…. Anyways… *ahem* yes… don’t go below the cut if you wanna wait to watch the episodes yourself. SPOILERS DESU!!!!!!!!

John Cusack – Spreading the love

February 10, 2009

I’ve been a fan for quite a while now, but I’m only just getting a friend of mine to watch some of his movies. From the IMDB list… I have seen now…. 18/19(can’t remember if I’ve seen ‘The Contract’ or not….) of the 56. I think thats pretty good, considering how hard to get some of the DVD’s are…

Loves Labours Lost – First show at the Courtyard Theatre!!

October 3, 2008

I feel so privaliged that I got to see the first showing of Loves Labours Lost!! (Which I will refer to as LLL from here on in.)

For those who don’t know, Loves Labours Lost is a play by Shakespeare. A comedy, as far as Shakespeare’s comedies go anyway lol. But it was suprisingly funny. And being at the front was so awesome…. like being in the action, actors whip past you, I swear I got brushed by one of the hugely ornate dresses that one of the 4 main women were wearing. It was so cool… if you were in the audience, I was in the front row, right on the end on the left, seat A 36, you really are so close, so much closer than I thought I’d be….

The story is basically this, 4 guys swear off women to study for 3 years, and then 4 women, a princess and her ladies come from France, each guy falls for one of the girls(lucky they didnt fall for the same one really…) and they all plot to get round the deal they made to steer clear of women. There are plenty of laughs, audience participation, a weirdass Spanish pirate type character named Armado, who had a mini version of him following him round. Which was so funny, he was the comic relief definately, although the rest was funny too lol, Tennant was brilliant as always, and the outfits were fantastic, hats off to the costume designer Katrina Lindsay, they were so ornate and gorgeous… I wanna go again just so I can watch the sparkles more, I was mesmorised at quite a few points, distracted from watching Tennant, thats an acomplishment on its own. And Tom Davey was yummy too!! Great legs, all the 4 main guys had great legs, shame the blonde one(Sam Alexander) was shorter than the other 3… All four of the guys, Tennant, Davey, Alexander and Edward Bennett were in Hamlet, so it was great to see them again, in uber-funky outfits, and tights…oh the legs….and the puffy pants lol. Such a good night…. I wish you were allowed to take pictures of the acting…. but I wouldn’t post them yet anyway. I have a few photos of the set which I took during the intervel, but I don’t want to ruin anything, not until someone else posts photos up first, I don’t want to be responsible for spoiling the suprises.

I’m ashamed to say I did go to the stage door after the show…. but I was nowhere near the most obsessed person there, one lady(much older than me)brought roses… she was sitting on the shame row as me, and tried to give them to him when he came out at the stage door, but she failed. :is strangely smug….: Poor guy was only wearing a tshirt and jeans when he came out to sign stuff… And because I wasn’t obsessed enough, and because I was sitting at the front(took longer to get out) I didnt get close enough to the front, so i didnt get a signiture. Not the end of the world, and being at the front, so close to all the actors, is more than enough compensation. And, not only that, I got the signiture of the actor who played Bostard, Ricky Champ, who was awesome, mucho funny! Him being dragged along by a rope by the mini Armado was a great laugh.

And to end, two of the photos I took outside the stage door, I should have concentrated on the photos instead of trying for an autograph, since I was too far for an autograph really… But I got one semi-decent photo of Tennant, and one of Champ, Ricky Champ has a great name lol. Champ!! Anyways, photos…

Anyway, thats enough for my rant of LLL. It was awesome, WAY more fun than Hamlet was, but I don’t suppose Hamlet was meant to be fun lol. Either way, I really enjoyed it, and wish I could go again. Even considering buying tickets on ebay…. because it really is awesome.

Back from Stratford

October 3, 2008

Did I mention I was going to see Loves Labours Lost in Stratford upon avon? I can’t remember… either way… the more Tennant the merrier.

It was soooo good! Way more fun than Hamlet, not just because I was right at the front(almost getting hit by the big froofy dresses! lol)

Anyways, more updates later!!! And I finally got to try ********!!! So stoked!!!

David Tennant in Hamlet – 10 DAYS!!!!

July 29, 2008

This isn’t normally what I’d post about. But its Tennant. And respect must be paid.

In 10 days, next friday, I will be going to see David Tennant and Patrick Stuart in Hamlet in Stratford upon Avon, in the Courtyard theatre. I am trying to remain calm and collected and very rational about it, but as the date draws ever closer, I will collapse into a pile of mushy girlyness. I can’t help it. Tennant is awesome. And Scottish. And TALL! The MOST important factor!!! And I will be seeing him LIVE!!! IN THE FLESH!!! (I’ll be seeing him again in Loves Labours Lost, same place, later date, can’t remember when. FRONT ROW FOR THAT!!!)

I feel kinda sorry for all the people going to see Shakespear for Shakespeares sake. Cause there are gonna be so many fangirls(for Tennant) and Trekkies (for Stuart). They’ve already banned any dressing up and your allowed to get anything signed thats not Shakespeare related, or just blank stuff is ok, signiture book or whatever. I wouldn’t care what I got signed. If it was signed by him thats all that matters!!!

Ok, thats my fangirly rant over and done with, there may be another the day or two before I go….but for now, heres a wallpaper featuring, what I believe, is an outfit that will be worn in Hamlet!! (I used to have a massive version of this pic, full body, but I can’t find it…. I’ll keep looking, but this’ll have to do for the moment.)
