rebcake: Dawn: sqeeeeeee (btvs dawneeeee)
You guys! I bring tidings of great joy! Beside all the other good stuff that happened last week, I mean. There are movies to squee about!

Like every year, I largely celebrated Pride Week here in San Francisco by going to the Frameline (LGBTQ) Film Festival at the historic Castro Theater. We all gather, listen to the Mighty Wurlitzer upon which the organist this year played "The Wedding March" to tumultuous applause, among other entertaining things. It's an ultra-fun scene, and the films can be quite wonderful.

I went to three biggish films which will most likely be coming to a theater or streaming device near you:

One good... )

One scary... )

One dynamite... )

Non-festival films... )

TV can be good, too... )

So many good things!

1. [ profile] herself_nyc is writing Buffy fic again! She is continuing her Bittersweets opus in the scary story Mr. Grieves and the Vengeance Girl. Give it a look and let her know what you think! (Hint to reader: catch up with previously posted part of this story here (LJ) or here (AO3), and when Spike reveals his identity to servant girl Kate switch to the new post here.

2. The Headline Awards have been announced! There are several old favorites among the winners in the Giles categories, but also, even better, some I haven't read before! I know what I'll be doing this weekend!

3. The Buffy Rewatch at [ profile] fantas_magoria is loads of fun! Check it out!

TV, Movies, and Comics... )

rebcake: River Song and Amy Pond look happy. (dw river_amy)
I actually wear comfy yoga pants (that's trousers to you) to watch television. It's usually a group activity at our place, with the TV-less neighbors coming over bearing plates of cheese and chocolate. I'm watching more stuff than usual this year. Not sure why, but I like to think it's because there are things on worth watching. Here are my TV thoughts for this fall:

I’ve been bad about posting, because, well, in addition to my computer being balky, I have a new obsession. One that I am obsessed enough about to put before you now. At the end, there will be fandom thoughts, I promise.


It's her life, I'm just visiting... )

Iron Man 3, The Great Gatsby, Byzantium, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Elementary... )


Have a terrific weekend!

My Favorite Vampires... )

Also, does anybody know how to find that vid of Spike set to the Count’s “I Love To Count” song? Funny, naughty stuff…
ETA: It's Cybermintz's award-winning "The Song of the Count", but I still don't know how to get to something I can watch and chortle over. :(
rebcake: Drusilla: Come to mama (btvs dru mama)
There's a bit of Who-fever at my house, you could say. For those who are not yet infected, tomorrow is the Season 6 premiere of the "new" Doctor Who. I'm all atwitter. Well, I don't actually do Twitter, but I did break down and do Tumblr. Sort of. Don't expect much. However, on the Official Doctor Who Tumblr page, there is a photo of my daughter and her friends in full-on Whoverse drag*:

A Doctor, a TARDIS, and three Daleks walk into a con...

Are they not adorable? )

Some sweet person dove into the vaults and nominated one of my early fics, The Scourge Does Titipu (Fanged Four circa 1885), for Best Song Fic in Round 23 of the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfic Awards! The song? The sun, whose rays are all ablaze... from Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado. Because, well, why not? I'm tickled that anybody is still reading it, let alone liking it enough to nom it! Thanks, kind nominator!

Now, for the elusive stuff... )
rebcake: Spike & Giles: drinking tea (btvs spiles tea)
Dear friends of mine from across the pond,

We finally got to see the first episode of Steven Moffat's Sherlock Holmes on PBS last night, hosted by Alan Cummings who pronounces it "Sherlick" in all his adorable Scottishness. (Love that guy.) Anyway, at the beginning, John Watson is sitting down to a cuppa and the camera focuses on a crest on his mug. I figure it's to establish either a branch of service or his educational background, but which is it? This is the sort of thing that would be entirely lost on an American audience, and I'm sure it doesn't have any huge bearing on the proceedings, but I want to know! Does it show that he's really elite at something, or from quite a middling background, or what? The only thing I'm sure of is that it's not from Hogwarts...

Thank you in advance for feeding my obsession with trivial detail.
