I miss her lips and the smile on her face
The touch of her hair and this girl's warm embrace
So if you don't wanna cry like I do
A-keep away from a-Runaround Sue

This might be the one doo-wop song that is even catchier than 'I saw Linda yesterday'. It's physically impossible for me to grow sick of 'Runaround Sue'.

Random thought that struck me last night: I should be glad I wasn't a teenager in the late sixties.

Because I would no doubt have had the biggest awkward fangirl crush on Peter Tork of the Monkees and ridicule would surely follow.

My bedroom walls would have been plastered with that guy. Well, obviously not exclusively, there would have been plenty of room for my other late-sixties idols.

Yeah dude, what eyecandy would have been prettyfying my walls if I'd been a teenager back then?

Stealth picspam! )

That was an odd thought experiment. Maybe I should make an entire weird pic spam series of "What would be hanging on my wall if I lived in [era]?" I can't help but contemplate how different my wall would look if I consentrated on the early sixties instead, for instance.

But back to Peter Tork. He and Mike Nesmith were totally an item back in the day, right?

No? Damn. Oh yes, I can go from nil to slash in two point oh seconds.
tilly_stratford: (Curious collection Holmes)
And is it so, once you thou art returning
Hast thou lost thy way as once before
I warned thee more than many times, thus would it be
I shall not be thy refuge once more

I've just finished watching Hogfather (about two months too late, but what can you when your local library only now stocks it?) I have to say I'm glad I first saw The Colour of Magic, because Hogfather is about twenty times better. I think David Jason (<3) was a far more suitable Albert than Rincewind, Michelle Dockery made an awesome Susan, and I can't fathom how Marc Warren can go from being so cuddly in Doctor Who and then portray the thoroughly creepy Mr Teatime.

And it all looks so good, the directing is better than that in The Colour of Magic anyhow, and it gave me that same burning desire to hug Death as the books do. Not that he would understand the impulse. Ian Richardson did some wonderful voice work there.

I'll definitely have to buy this on DVD when Christmas comes along again.

And then we have more Holmes audios.


In any case I'm going to attempt to take a break from the Sherlock Holmes audios. They're still absolutely dead brilliant, but if I know myself I might grow sick of them if I keep it up, and then it'll be ages until I have the desire to pick them up again.

No, I think the smartest thing is to decide to take a little pause before that happens. I'll see how long I'll manage. With the fabulous Valley of Fear fresh in my mind it might not be very long at all.

In the meantime, I'll have to continue to listen to other audio plays, or I'll probably start walking less. I plan on relistening to Zagreus, but I could do with some suggestion on other audio plays? Anything exciting my dear flist has been listening to? I'm not too fuzzy on genre as long as it's good.
