Bit late, but Happy New Year everyone! (This is going to sound a bit random, but has anyone else's internal calendar gone out of whack? I keep thinking it's Wednesday not Tuesday)

I've also found the next Doctor Who Lemming! Even later than usual this time.

In his defence, his TARDIS doesn't work properly )

PS: Turns out that no, asLJ does not allow you to crosspost to communities, as my posting screw-up just now has proved.
blue_aeon: (Ten!Lem)
Later than intended thanks to work, but here's the next Doctor Who Lemming! I bet you guys anything that the day one of these guys shows up on time it'll be in the middle of an intergalactic crisis.

The jury's out as to what he's playing... )
blue_aeon: (Eleven!Lem)
I hope you've got another frame ready, [ profile] gipsy_dreamer, 'cos the next lemming is done! :D

Quick! Before he disappears again! )

Hello to my new friends from the Fandom Secrets friending meme! *waves*

I've somehow managed to hit 90+ hours on Pokemon SoulSilver now, and am currently wondering a) who on Earth is in charge of hiring for Team Rocket because they're serious idiots and b) whose idea it was to turn Togetic into an absolute demon. Also, getting elemental stones from the trainers is a pain in the butt (they don't give you any after you thrash them? What gives?).

FMA 107 was a return to the FMA I know and love after the preceding silliness, and it really is becoming clear just how much BONES knew about the manga ending when making the first anime. Btw, FMA fans on my f-list: my sister stopped reading the manga round about the Ishbal flashback, and is now stuck for a good point to jump back in at. Can anyone recommend a chapter? And does anyone know of a site that does chapter summaries?

I am LOVING Doctor Who so far this series. It actually feels like a proper arc from one episode to the next this time. And I really don't get why people are saying that Amy's sorta wooden. My sister acts a lot like her and she actually does become "wooden" and impassive if she's not directly involved in anything, and yet is completely bonkers and impulsive when she's engaged with either us or people she knows. Same goes for the Tenth Doctor's "overacting" - my brother acts ridiculously over the top on an almost daily basis. And me, I act like a cross between the two most days (maybe a bit of Eleven thrown in). I guess people like the three of us really aren't very common in real life.

In my final month of Uni now, and me and my sister are both gearing up for our final presentations (we're on the same course). After that's done we're going to start working on a project that we've been bouncing around ideas for.

Oh, and I'm a prat - I picked up a case for my DS Lite from GAME's bargain bin this afternoon, and when I got home it turned out to be a DSi only case (in my defence, the packaging says "DSi compatible", not "DSi only"). So I've got to get that exchanged on Tuesday now. Did get some new headphones pretty cheap though, so it wasn't completely wasted.

And yeah, this post is how my brain works at any one time - several different things at once. XD

Okay, so it was my birthday on Saturday. I'm not really one for making a fuss over it, so I kinda let it slip by the wayside, but due to me being both anal about facts and too honest for my own good, I felt I ought to mention it - I only mentioned it on the recent [ profile] fandomsecrets friending meme because it was happening on my birthday.

Speaking of which, hi new friends! I'm dropping you all in at the deep end here, as I still haven't mastered the art of being brief. X3;;

Funny hats and Black Mage weapons, amongst other things (slight spoilers for Doctor Who) )

In what is a new record for me in terms of art updates, I bring you the next Doctor Who Lemming.

Catch him if you can! )

Late to the party, but Happy New Year!

I'm still processing The End of Time. I feel oddly detached from the whole thing - I still feel sad, and there's a sort of hollow feeling at the thought of not seeing Ten or David acting like the fanboy he is again, but it seems... distant. Like it's happened to somebody else. Is this how the Doctor feels after regeneration? It's quite surreal.

Right now, my mind is running at 300 miles per hours and I can't seem to sit and focus on any one thing, not even Ten!Lem (he's coming along nicely though). Instead my brain is running through temporal theory and time loops and alternate universes and going "Oi! He's not gone for good you know! He's still knocking around in other universes! And I'm not letting you drop that crossover after two flipping years because of bloody canon!" (my subconscious is a rather rebellious git)

I need sleep. All this has only served to give me a headache and I'd rather not start tackling this kind of thing at this time of night. But you know what? I'm tired of having all these ideas going around in my head and being afraid to share them in case people point and laugh at me. So sod it, when I get up tomorrow I'm going to do something about it!

Just to warn you all, I'm writing this whilst under the influence of sherbet.

For those of you on my f-list who, well, weren't a year ago, I drew a picture of the Fourth Doctor as a Lemming for a bit of fun after my sister spotted the TARDIS in one of the games. Since then, more have appeared in my sketchbook, but it's only recently I've been able to sit down and get cracking on colouring them.

Another Lemming Doctor joins the fold )

Now I remember why I love the timelordfromhell youtube lot so damn much. XD

blue_aeon: (Me at Expo)
Because lets face it, I need to quit rambling so damn much.

  • Kayli (that rainbow coloured sugary stuff) is surprising good at kicking your brain into gear, even if it doesn't point it in the right direction.
  • Boils on your side are a right pain, especially if they're on the side you like to sleep on. x_X
  • Plaster itches.
  • Visualisation is another pain - why is it so much more demanding that the other pathways?
  • On the other hand, Animation and Games rock - I've got weird creature and a steampunk airship, respectively.
  • SPP not so much, a 3000 word essay due in two weeks, and we need to also sort out research and client project proposals. Good thing we're talking to our Animation lecturer tomorrow.
  • Livejournal doesn't know whether it's up or down. It's almost as bad as the Orange website.
  • Switching over to Sky Broadband tomorrow - hopefully this router will be easier to connect to than the Livebox was. The Wii may end up having to time-share with Dad's laptop (4 computers allowed to connect, max).
  • Still reading Watchmen - intend to finish it before I see it in cinemas.
  • My brain is weird. I still have no idea why I dreamt about David Tennant presenting Comic Relief a couple of weeks ago. Maybe I should lay off reading Doctor Who comms before bed.
  • Said brain is also brilliant at making connections between things and creating plot bunnies. As of now, FMA and Doctor Who are linked together in a way that makes far more sense than it should.
  • Coming up with a fanfic plot for said bunnies is a very good way to get my brain to quit going on about it (well, not as much as it would otherwise).
  • New FMA anime soon yay! Xerxes flashback in manga however is really creepy. o.o
  • Really should rename that 'general' tag.

I went to the Midlands Expo with Hayley ([ profile] angelbless) and my friend Emily on yesterday and met up why Hayley's online friend, also called Emily (I'm referring to my Emily as Em and Hayley's as Emily for the rest of this). It. Was. AWESOME. I have photos, I have more video than my hard drives can stomach (and my laptop so hates me for it) so I'm going to have to make another post just for the video (YouTube is going to hate love me).

Photos and shenanigans through here )

Snow Day!

Feb. 5th, 2009 08:06 pm
blue_aeon: (Pudsey!Doctor)
Because me and my sister [ profile] angelbless didn't go to Uni today thanks the lack of grit for the roads (and I didn't want a repeat of Monday when I was nearly sent flying due to the bus driver clipping a roundabout), we spent the day doing what everyone else was - we made snowmen! (three of them)

Follow me for pics and a touch of insanity )
blue_aeon: (terror)
And it has sprinkles!

... Although it was over a day late ('cos there wasn't any time to make it on the day). So I ended up with the family singing "Happy Belated Birthday" to me. Dad went for full blown operatic tenor, much to our amusement (my sister was worried he'd snuff out the candles).

So it was my birthday on Friday (I'm now 22 - although the way people harp on about Matt Smith's age I may as well not even be out of nappies yet) - and we were up at the crack of dawn to go to Uni because Dad had a meeting and the school run screw up the bus timetables (why is that school still manages to screw you over after you've left?). I got Watchmen, which I'd been meaning to get for some time for 3 reasons: 1) the movie trailers look awesome, 2) it's listed as one of the greatest graphic novels of all time and 3) it's set in an alternate 1985 and I'm a massive geek for alternate time-lines. Read one chapter and I'm enjoying it, although Rorschach's mask is rather unnerving to look at. Didn't get anything else, since the other stuff I want isn't out till April at the earliest (Doctor Who: The Forgotten, and there's another DW graphic novel out later in the year called The Dalek Project).

Going with[ profile] angelbless to the Midlands Expo in 3 weeks. We have a deal, sorta - I get to go to the live robot fights if I join in with the group Hare Hare Yukai and Caramelldansen (and Levan Polka). Fair enough. I'm debating whether to take along my mage hat and just wear it with my blue leather jacket so that I look kinda like a mage (well, it could work). I'm also looking for an artist's satchel to take my sketchbook in since my Uni bag's a bit big.

And I'm slightly miffed at Deepest Sender (a Firefox extension for posting to LJ). It's alright being able to save drafts as xml, but you can't transfer said drafts from one computer to another because it wipes the content except for the header (who on Earth thought that was a good idea? I thought the whole point of saving was to have a backup) and it won't load any xml file not saved by Deepest Sender, so as I jump from a mac to a Vista laptop and back again a lot this is really annoying. Even more annoying is the fact that there's no mac equivalent of Semagic (what I'm using atm) - save for Xjournal but that doesn't save as xml or even txt tiles and it doesn't have a WYSIWYG modem, and the supposed equivalent Xemagic seems to be dead. *sigh*

Now to go and attempt to install Unreal Tournament 2004 (for Uni purposes, honest).

PS: It's finally snowed here. You're a bit late, Xmas was a month ago.

ETA: Semagic can't locate the server. Guess I'll stick with Deepest Sender then.
blue_aeon: (Pudsey!Doctor)
The Doctor Who fandom predictably explodes, ITV fall flat on their faces yet again, FMA coming back (yay!) and the perils of an active imagination, and I get round to finally posting a picture of me being the complete dork that I am.

Long post again )
*sigh* These entries wouldn't be so long if I remembered to actually post more often.
blue_aeon: (Campfire)
During a tidy up of my mac desktop/data-dump I ended up looking through some old files (which also reminded me that the folder is a mess and it's a wonder I can find anything) and found one of the daftest things I've ever done.

Waaaay back before the S4 finale they had a post for crack theories at [ profile] doctorwho which I joined in with. I completely laughed myself silly when I read these again - I must have been very hyper at the time.

Crack Theories for the end of S4 (in a lovely TARDIS blue) )

Funnily enough, I think half of those are better than the ending we actually got.

Speaking of endings, I'm both excited and nervous about RTD saying that the ending of the 2008 Xmas Special is 'ferociously huge' given his track record. If I wind up with a serious injury thanks to this episode, I'm sending Rusty my medical bills.

To breath life back into my LJ after two years, here's my opinion on Journey's End. But, thanks to my brain dissecting it and applying copious amounts of fridge logic, it ended up half review, half speculation, with a wish list for series 5/6 (no idea if the numbering has been decided on for that yet) tagged on at the end.

Warning: this is a rather long ramble. Whether it's meaningful is open to debate.

If you got through all that, you deserve a medal.
