1. A DANCE WITH DRAGONS ARRIVED IN THE MAIL TODAY. I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS BOOK FOR SIX YEARS AND NOW I AM FINALLY HOLDING IT IN MY HANDS.

2. I OPENED THE PROLOGUE PAGE JUST NOW AND THE BODY TEXT IS TYPESET SO BEAUTIFULLY IT MAKES ME HAPPY IN MY PANTS. I CAN'T EVEN

3. I'M KINDA LATE BUT THE SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS TRAILER IS SO FUCKING EPIC AND GAY AND WONDERFUL. I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL DECEMBER. DID I MENTION IT'S REALLY GAY?



P.S. Yes, I am still here. Haven't felt like writing anything for a long time. Overall the first half of this year was crap (depression, no money, etc.) but things are looking better now. :)

P.P.S. Is it December soon?

I accidentally a movie poster.

jautero gave me a link to this Lovecraft movie poster competition. Naturally I could not resist.

So I made this.Collapse )

Spam spam spam

First of all, are any of my friends who are not Livejournal users reading my blog? Because I've been getting lots of anonymous spambot comments lately and I'm thinking of disabling anon comments altogether to stop this.

The other option is to enable Captcha to all commenters, because that seems to have stopped the "LJ-user" spambot comments. I currently have it on for non-friends. I have no idea why it is not working on the anons as well. Grr.

So, what should I do? Does anyone mind if I switch on Captcha? Or disable anonymous commenting?



(Oh and feel free to reply in Finnish if you'd prefer that.)




Edit: Yay. Already got one spam comment on this entry. *punches spambot in the face* So how about you real people?

Edit2: I decided to switch on Captcha for everyone. Let me know if it gets too annoying.

Icon meme!

How this works:

★  Reply to this post with ICON ME! and I will pick five of your icons.
★  Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
★  Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
★  This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee...
★  I will only pick five of your icons if you specifically ask me to, so feel free to comment even if you don't want to play!

wave_of_sorrow picked:


When I first saw this shot of Brett Anderson I thought he was a woman. :P I'm not sure if you can tell from the icon but there is a poster of David Bowie on the wall. This is the only Suede icon I currently have. I used to have more.


Hmm, Watson looks a bit mischievous here. ;) I love Jude Law's Watson because he is a badass motherfucker, and not a dumb comic sidekick like he has been often portrayed in the past. Also, Law rocks that porn 'stache. I normally hate facial hair.


This quote is from 'Tin Man' (I think it's only in the extended version). It is said by my favourite character Glitch (Scarecrow) and it captures his naive optimism quite well.


Another Tin Man icon. I like this shot and the expression. Besides, Zooey Deschanel HNNNGH.


I just love this scene in the movie. Holmes makes Watson deduce stuff from that pocket watch. Of course Holmes himself figured it all out the moment he picked up the damn watch. :P

Kitchen is finally done! Floor, cupboards, water taps, stove. *happy dance*

You know what? I'm gonna bake a fucking blueberry pie now, just because I can.

Watching them come and go, tomorrows and the yesterdays

1. They started putting the kitchen floor and cupboards and stuff back today. Finally. This thing was supposed to be done a long time ago but the company that did the drying forgot to inform the repair company that they had finished. *facepalm*

Only a few days now and then we can cook proper food again! I am so tired of eating instant noodles and microwave food, and you have no idea how much I want to have fried eggs for breakfast.



2. Not going to bother with New Year's resolutions this year. I have failed to keep them in the past.

Except maybe one little thing. I thought I'd try to make a desktop wallpaper each month. SmashingMagazine.com had these cool wallpapers with a calendar included, and I liked the idea that if you need to quickly check some date it's right there on your desktop.

So... These will all be Sherlock Holmes wallpapers. (Yeah, sorry.) The first one is here:
1280 x 1024
1440 x 900 (widescreen)

In case you're wondering about the date marked in red, that's Holmes' birthday. :)



3. Thanks to everyone who sent me a card for Christmas! ♥♥♥ And I'm terribly sorry that I haven't sent you anything yet. I will make it up to you somehow. Let me know if there is something specific that you'd like.

Forgot to post these earlier... I wish there was more. (Well, there are a few with just me, but that's no fun. Holmes needs his Watson.)

These are from the official Finncon party on Saturday (17th July), we meant to take more on Sunday, but Taimi got sick and she had to go home. :( We've been thinking of doing a separate photoshoot some time, and if we do this again in next year's Finncon we'll probably get Mycroft as well. And maybe Irene too.
