(145) The unicorn and the double rainbow* + links
|By Sati.||Friday, August 22, 2014||Rambling Friday|
* in the most shocking twist of your lives this is not a reference to Stephen's full frontal nudity in Savage Grace.
I can't. I can't.
*incoherent inhuman fangirl noises* *space dolphin communication*
Wait. This is actually better than the unicorn. On a double rainbow. A unicorn running on a double rainbow. While dozens of baby unicorns fall from the sky on tiny parachutes. (I'm really not high right now, I just really, really, really love love love Stephen)
And it's even more rare that that. This photo is as rare of a gem as RF without inappropriate comments. It's a freaking miracle. If Jesus came down on Earth I'd be less surprised than I am by this picture. And I'm not even Catholic.
Look how hot and scruffy too.
I just cannot believe we finally have a picture of Stephen while filming Thrones - well not filming it per se, just at the time of filming of season 5. I'm actually glad no one took a pic while he was in costume because when I saw the above photo I just sat in front of the screen nodding and sighing, thanking the gods for creating him and as a result I was almost late for work (how am I not employee of the month yet?). Show me him in armor and I'm catatonic for a week.
What's even more unbelievable is that he is socializing. And smiling. *breathes into a paper bag*
Why the fuck did I become a lawyer I should have been a waitress in Belfast.
Good lord, he's already so scruffy. Will it become scruffier? Ah, the mystery. He just gets hotter and hotter season after season. At this rate if Stannis is gonna make it till the last season I'm not gonna - I will spontaneously combust one of these days while staring at him.
This picture is so much gold. John Bradley looks so lost and obviously there is Harington so it means it's hilarious by default but there are at least 3 awesome things here. First of all, look at his hair. I think he is trying to be more manly. By wearing a ponytail. So yeah he is failing. Second of all, any attempts are just so sad because hey, Kit, there's One True King in the photo with you. Also Thorne is there and he is badass. But the best part, good God, he cannot even figure out where to look. Everyone is looking at the camera, even Stephen who probably lives in a cave (in Sexual Paradise) or an abandoned lighthouse (in Sexual Paradise) but not Kit. No, not Kit. Kit is gonna look AT THE WALL.
If he gets any more helpless he is just gonna start randomly falling on the ground. In slight slow motion. Like Gustav when we walk inside the house and he suddenly sees a bike, gets startled, falls down and looks at me to pick him up:
Oh Kit, that ponytail so isn't going to help.
So I was rewatching Sex and the City and this happened:
Naturally I repurposed my gifs and made this set:
*nods aggressively* *makes a lot of indecent noises*
I think he should publicly apologize for ruining all other men for me.
Stephen Dillane fandom is a very starved group. He doesn't give many interviews, he doesn't do promo tours, there are barely any pics of him outside of the set, hell, even on the set. We got what 5 promo pics last season? We see a tweet that he is riding trains and we go insane. And then the first pic like this shows up and it's escalation. Long story short this ice bucket thing made its way to GoT cast...
...so now, naturally, we want, we really really want wet shirtless Stephen.
I haven't even talked about Savage Grace. I only saw bits and pieces of it so far and it looks so bad but the full frontal...I think I'm about to pass out.
Lovely Elina of Films and Coke is my star this week:
right. She watched it. She liked it. She saw that sex scene. She witnessed the divine.
So they released those portraits of the characters in season 4. Obviously Stannis is not there because I cannot have nice things. What the fuck with all the Melisandre focus on promo material. If Stannis was a hot girl he'd be there instead of her. But, no, no, why give Sati nice things to look at.
Meanwhile, in Belfast Roose Bolton, Littlefinger and Varys are enjoying ice cream (and they look seriously high) and Sansa, Roose and Theon attended the Killers concert. Roose is very hip, apparently.
There's this gem on Playlist. I laughed so hard I almost cried - "I don’t think (graphic scenes) have ever been without any purpose"; "Dan and Dave are two very sober, thoughtful men.". What's next? Are they are going to tell us cutting Arianne Martell out of the show is 'empowering'? Cause that's seems like the ludicrous thing they'd say.
It looks like Chris Martin has seriously unfortunate taste. Years
being married to Gwyneth Paltrow, whose disconnect from the actual real
world borders on some sci-fi concept of alien coming over to Earth from
her home planet of doing nothing and acting pompous and wiping your ass
with money to live among us and marvel at the peasants who actually work
for a living while she hosts garden parties and makes pizzas outside in
some fancy ovens and wonders how on Earth people can work 8 hours a day
and eat actual food instead of whatever that birdfeed crap she eats is.
Unbelievably, or perhaps amazingly, now he actually found someone worse.
Yes, he is dating JLaw. Chris, you're
British. How dare you. You people are supposed to have class. She's gonna puke on you, man.
On a related note, do you guys think if Gwyneth and Blake Lively were
in one room the world would explode due to so much of deluded self-importance based on meaningless crap? I think so. It's not gonna be the
rapture or plague, it's gonna be this. The end of all things.
Rumor has it that JLaw may be in Quentin Tarantino's new movie. Et tu, Quentin?
With each clip I see from Doctor Who it looks more and more as if it was simply Malcolm Tucker in space, so I'm delighted.
Back to the ice bucket challenge, this week Tom Hiddleston attempted to kill the entire womankind:
I'm gonna rant about Sex and the City now. I'm at this point where Aidan took Carrie back. You know, they should be together because they are both so selfish. I'd dump Aidan right there when he went all 'you smoke?!' on their first date when Carrie lit a cigarette. His outrage was so bad as if she stabbed a puppy in front of him. What the fuck. A person shouldn't stop smoking because some guy doesn't like it, it's your own personal choice. Carrie, as she does all for dick, of course did. And then it gets hilarious - she is dating him, then she fucks Big for three weeks, Aidan leaves her when she tells him, then after some time she figures she wants him again (after he lost some weight and cut his hair and became an owner of a bar btw), yells in front of his window at night that she misses him, he takes her back (have some pride, my God, man) and then she invites Big over to Aidan's country house and then she pukes when she is snooping around his stuff and finds an engagement ring from him, complains about how ugly the ring is to her friends and then says yes to him while he proposes in the street (what the fuck) obviously after buying her clearly a much more expensive ring, but then obviously she changes her mind and leaves him again. Oh my God. And she's not even the worst person on the show! Charlotte can't get pregnant and Miranda got knocked up by Steve completely by accident and then Charlotte goes 'How could you do that to me?'. Jesus, I'd slap that spoiled bitch right there.
Anyways, the show is so insightful and funny I still love it. Even though it has things I hate the most - entitled bitches who emasculate men and men who judge women for what they do even though it's none of their fucking business.
Ladies and gentlemen, Shower Thoughts with Nick Offerman.
This week I experienced that moment when you’re reading Gillian Flynn’s novel and she throws in a
paragraph about farm animals that makes you want to have a lobotomy just
so you could forget you read that. Good Lord. It was in Sharp Objects which is full of moments like that - suddenly there is a paragraph about something and it's so messed up. The book was really fantastic, though, although I wish the main guy was a bigger man in the end. The heroine of the story was probably the first truly good person among Flynn's heroines. I cannot wait for the adaptation of this one, which is rumoured to be a TV series. It's gonna be like darker, gorier, more complex Twin Peaks.
I'm gonna see Magic in the Moonlight this weekend. Did you guys see it? Is it good? Is Colin Firth at least shirtless in it?
I saw Director's Cut of Zodiac. It didn't make me like the movie more. It's a great film, but the third act is, for me, much worse than the first 2/3 of the movie. I was gonna write more about it here but it quickly turned into 'Se7en vs Zodiac' rant so expect my article on that next week in another installment of David Fincher Blog Event.
Hey, speaking of Blog Events I'm gonna be a part of Fisti's Twice a Best Actress blogathon. That's right. Me, a person who sees maybe 6 movies a month, most featuring Stephen, has roughly, what 20? 25? movies to watch now. Well, this will be interesting.
This week was weird. On one hand they renewed my contract so it means I'm gonna continue to have money to buy myself cute outfits and treats for Gustav. But the other thing is that my 25th birthday is coming up and the department of health figured it's appropriate to send me the info on all the tests women should start doing once they turn 25. 'Happy Birthday, may we have a piece of your uterus tissue?' - I'm paraphrasing but that was the gist of it. My reaction:
Josh writes about Emma Stone in Magic in the Moonlight
Alex writes about his upcoming movie Wait
Dan reviews Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Irene reviews Fincher's Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
MettelRay reviews Guardians of the Galaxy
Ruth shares some tracks from Tron: Legacy OST which was so brilliantly used in GoT season 3 trailer - 1:09. All other men - ruined.
