Waiting in the airport, and the gate next to me is boarding for some place called "mynot" which frankly sounds like the sort of thing you need to worry about eating you if you are Luke Skywalker.

I am currently in a hurry up and wait phase on a contract, so I am using my time productively by catching up on Orphan Black. And by 'catching up', I mean 'am nearly through the first season.'

Orphan BlackCollapse )

Prompted basically only from the fact that their 'shit is going down' music reminds me of the Winter Soldier's theme, I want a crossover where the clones are a Hydra program, possibly attempting to build on the Soviet Black Widow program.

I don't know what jojoba oil is(*), or how my immune system encountered it to form such an opinion of it, but I am definitely allergic to it.

* I mean, I googled it, I know what it is, but other than that, I basically don't know what it is.

One of the few things I disliked

about Captain America: the Winter Soldier is touched on by Hello Tailer's post ostensibly on costuming, is that the action scenes are kind of a mess, cinematographically.

I mean, watching some of the behind the scenes stuff, it's evident that one of the reasons why the action scenes look like choppy vignettes that don't fit together is because they were filmed that way, but it's the job of the movie to make you forget that.

(I watched In the Cut: Shots in the Dark (Knight) which takes apart DKR's chase scene, and ever since, when watching action, I tend notice the ways in which these scenes fail to make sense.)

It's just not clear, especially in the chase scene, which way things are pointed, and what is situated where, and who's getting punched in what direction.

Another thing I am not so much disliked as was... a bit disappointed by? Is spoilerCollapse )

I once told someone I had no Bucky feels. [hollow_laugh.gif] It's a very nice feeling, though, to be head over heels for Cap 2, because Teen Wolf was making me angry and miserable and yet I wasn't quite able to kick it to the curb. I'm not sure I've ever been this attached to a movie fandom, and I'd forgotten just how much terrain is off the map and in the realm of fannon.

Specific areas that are unmapped by canon in CAtWS:

Natasha: How old is she?Collapse )

The Winter Soldier: What does he know/can he do?Collapse )

I was talking to Holli as well about how little I am interested in the AU fic people are writing where they are post-docs, or the coffee-shop AUs, or whatever. If Bucky isn't trying to recover from being coercively used as an assassin, I just don't care. I am probably interested in your HYDRA won!AU, or your SHIELD making use of the asset!AU, and whatever AU you want to write me to go with this fanart, though.

ETA that my ideal Winter Soldier story has this soundtrack.

Let's play a game!

This game is called "Most horrifying thing Tony Stark has said during sex." I'll get the obvious one out of the way first: Read more...Collapse )

It can be horrifying to his partner, or you personally. (Also, horrifying to Tony gets you extra points, if you can manage it.)

On second viewing of CATWS I have some thoughts, mostly on technology. A bit on Natasha.

Natasha was really the character (other than Cap) who got the most characterisation in this movie, wasn't she?

Comic book 'science'Collapse )

I just want to give a shout-out to lastpass which has made changing my passwords in the wake of heartbleed (non-technical explanation) relatively easy.  I won't say painless, because it was a pain, but lastpass gave me a list of sites I needed to change my passwords on, and remembered them when I did.  

If you keep relatively secure passwords and don't keep a paper printout by your desk, you probably already use a password manager.  If you don't, consider lastpass.  It's free, cross-platform, and there's only a bit of a learning curve.  I can try to answer any questions people have about it if you are thinking about adopting.

Finally saw CATWS (Pronounced Caw! Tsch!) and I can read All The Spoilers!

But it spoils nothing to reveal that the friend with whom I saw it and I spent the entire movie clutching each other and saying: "So pretty!"

"His skin is amazing."

"So pretty!"

"Why, shirt? Why?"

"SO PRETTY."

"NOT IN THE FACE! HIS PRETTY FACE!"
