It's Michael Rosenbaum's birthday, and mskatej
has a tribute picspam
and is inviting us all to tell her why we like Mikey so much. You'll have to mosey over there if you want to see my extended thoughts, but Happy Birthday, Michael!
blame you for my LJ addiction
*cough* attribute my participation in fandom pretty much solely to you and your mesmerising performance as Lex--but it was the fact that you are so UN-Lex-like that really hooked me in and made me require a place where I could scream 'omg! he's so insanely dorky and great!' ten times daily to people who would never get bored of it
Apart from this, my week has been dominated by work work work. And work politics. My brain is on hiatus, or rather is sucked dry of all un-work-related thought, which is frustrating because I wanted to post on a number of things. So, with much effort and struggle and labour I bring you Thoughts--one per topic. Please treasure these. They took much brain. :-pThought 1: Pirates of the Caribbean( One for the fans )Thought 2: Bleak House( Youth, Hope and Beauty )Thought 3: Jamie Bamber
I'm not even cut-tagging this one. Probably everyone that cares already knows that Jamie was on the cover of August's Out
and the article's online
, complete with strange but oddly endearing photos. There's a slightly spoilery comment about Season 3 right at the end of the article. But I just want to say that I love Jamie to bits for being so comfortable with his gay male fans and for championing the idea of a gay character on BSG. For those of you too lazy (or spoiler-phobic) to read the whole thing: "There’s no reason, in a world that is gender-blind, on the Battlestars and across this fleet, that we haven’t had an overtly gay relationship come to fruition. It should be there, and it should be as unabashedly honest as the heterosexual relationships."
I choose the best people to fangirl! Jamie's such a honey. *chuffed*
I lied. That was more than one thought each. My bad!ETA:
During the time it took me to post, my f'list exploded with MR picspam. I'm doing that head-whirl movement from my icon all over the place--I don't know where to look first!!
