A slightly modified version of the image-meme seen floating around LJ lately. Apparently I cannot resist a meme that focuses on pictures.

1. Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.

2. NO CAPTIONS! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.

3. They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.


++++ )
In other news I am way behind on comments, and will start working on that in the next few days. Apparently those who said that summer was a time for holidays and relaxation lied.

I'm stuck writing a paper and so I'm procrastinating and talking about fandom instead.
Snagged this from [livejournal.com profile] wildtiger7 who tagged me with Band of Brothers, BSG & The Wire

Comment and I will give you 3 fandoms and then you have to answer these questions.

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think that you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fan fiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?


The Wire )
Band of Brothers )
Battlestar Galactica )

I've tried to resist, but I cannot help it. I just love movie quotes too much. And though I wouldn't call all these movies my favourites, they are all films I've seen more than twice.

Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
Post them here for everyone to guess.
Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.



1. A: There is a war on. How is it you are headed west?
B: Well, we kinda face to the north and real subtle-like turn left.
Last of the Mohicans, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] bzoppa and [livejournal.com profile] lage_nom_ai

the other nine )

Comment on this post. I'll choose seven userpics from your profile and you'll reply here (or you know, your own journal, whichever), explaining what they mean and why you're using them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.

And since I love all my pretty icons, how could I refuse?

Here be icons.....  )

Hmm..not much posting lately - but I'm currently trying to finish a paper and watching season 4 of The Wire.

I'm on episode six now and I must say that this season might become my new favourite, right next to season two. cut for s4 spoilers )

-----------


And then for something entirely different:

taken from [livejournal.com profile] appplegnat and [livejournal.com profile] finnygan - The ten things a reader of this LJ should know about me. Possibly...
spoilers for me? )


---------------------


And some links for last:

[livejournal.com profile] schionutlander has a fascinating post on the art of Otl Aicher. It is based on the life and theories of the medieval philosopher Wilhelm von Ockham, and is a modern interpretation of medieval art. Very interesting!

[livejournal.com profile] mr_kit has made some nice and creepy icons of Kittelsen's Old Mother Plague illustrations. (which I wrote about here)The icons capture the mood and the composition of the illustrations, all while being clear and a bit frightening. Highly recommended.

I've been tagged by [livejournal.com profile] the_grynne to state 8 facts about myself. So here goes:


THE RULES

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

the simple facts )

I'm going to break the rules a bit though, and instead be inspired by [livejournal.com profile] winterspel. Meaning I won't tag any one, but if you feel like doing the meme then please do.

You all know how some rather extreme environmentalists wanted to kill the über-cute Knut in the Berlin zoo? Well, apparently the show is not over for the polar bear, because now Knut is blamed for a conspiracy to murder! I quote:

Yan Yan, the zoo's most popular resident until Knut's arrival, died suddenly at the age of 22.

A gift from the Chinese leadership to Helmut Kohl, the former German chancellor, Yan Yan spent much of her time lying on her back chomping at bamboo shoots and was, by all accounts, a happy panda. Heinrich Kloes, the zoo's chief bear curator, said there had been no signs of illness.

But something changed on Monday, days after Knut's introduction to tumultuous crowds, and Yan Yan lay down and died. The cause of death has yet to be determined, but already fingers are being pointed at three-month-old Knut.


The theory is that the stress of Knut, or more precisely Knut's fans proved fatal to the poor panda.

The full story is here. But poor Knut! And poor Yan Yan too.


Also Meme!

Comment and I will...

1 - Tell you why I friended you.
2 - Associate you with a song/film/tv show.
3 - Tell a random fact about you.
4 - Tell a first memory about you.
5 - Associate you with a character/pairing.
6 - Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
7 - Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.
8 - In return please spread this disease in your LJ.
