Watchman, what is left of the night?

All the images of its gods
lie shattered on the ground!”

Oh my god, I've lost my mind. So this started out on tumblr, but then I thought, why deny livejournal the fruits of my insanity? So here you go; casting the Hogwarts founders, with snippets of dialogue thrown in.

The Hogwarts Founders
bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
shrewd Slytherin, from fen.

mix: Bad Reputation!  

Bad Reputation!
A picspam and crack!mix for the original book 'verse of 'Howl's Moving Castle', by Diana Wynne Jones.

Howl said, ‘I think we ought to live happily ever after,’ and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew that living happily ever after with Howl would be a good deal more eventful than any story made it sound, though she was determined to try. ‘It should be hair-raising,’ added Howl.

‘And you’ll exploit me,’ Sophie said.

‘And then you’ll cut up all my suits to teach me,’ said Howl. )

The thing I particularly love about Fringe is the way that Olivia and Peter are each set up within a differing, but classic paradigm.

But I am yet to attain omnipresent supergalactic oneness.  
Is everybody in cyber-land coming out to play yet? I can never figure out the wacky time/space continuum of this place.

(For my Dreamwidth peeps, I'm just crossposting now, and I'm about to put up the Sons of Anarchy primer/picspam I posted on LJ a couple of days ago.)

I spent a happy couple of hours yesterday playing around with my profile because I finally discovered that nothing in the world can stop me from filling it up with as many shiny, pretty things as I want.

So, yay?

I made a little picture bar through the centre out of images found at myheart, which I enjoyed thoroughly, so if anybody wants me to throw one together for them around a theme or just using my basic instincts on you (which ... is not as murderous as it sounds), ask away!

Also, I am currently doped up on painkillers, so take advantage of me before I get back into my right mind. Spinny chairs are fun. You know what movie is awesome? Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. Forget Citizen Kane, that shit's a masterpiece.

I had a little meta spazz with the wondrous [personal profile] egregiouslypink about Gossip Girl, which I adore, by the way, and so here are some of my thoughts - including spoilers for the latest ep - lifted from her comments and loosely grouped around subject matter and variations of insantiy.

The Hurt Locket: Because Gossip Girl would be infinitely better if it took place in a warzone. )

Also, for all those crazy kids on my flist who are into Sons of Anarchy, here's the rockin' theme song:

This Life - Curtis Stigers & The Forest Rangers
theme song: Cousins - Mumford and Sons (Vampire Weekend cover)

Lucifer Rising  

In anticipation of tonight, I threw together some words and pictures of the finale. All speculation; no spoilers please!

Lucifer Rising
A meta picspam.

Sometimes I feel - in a very ... literal sense - that I have been wandering the desert for years, looking for our father. Well, not our father. My father. )

The Secret History  
So I just finished The Secret History, by Donna Tartt (yes, I'm ridiculously late to the party, stop laughing), and my mind is satisfactorily blown. Rather than attempt to impart my impressions through words, at which I would no doubt fail miserably, I instead choose to use pictures, quotations and music.


Spoilers for the book beneath the cut.

So I have just discovered this show, you might have heard of it? Something to do with criminals, perchance?

Suite!Verse Gift Post, part the second.  
So [ profile] loverstar came to me with an interesting proposition; did I want to create some graphics to go along with the utterly brilliant vid she was creating for [ profile] leonidaslion and her magnificent Suite!Verse, said she.
Hell yes, said I.

So, [ profile] leonidaslion, here are a series of graphics, in much the same style as the first graphics I created for Suite!Verse, but hopefully this surprise gift will make you happy and keep you inspired! Consider this thanks for writing something so friggin' gorgeous, something that has given me hours and hours of enjoyment.
Much love, Charlie. ;)

Follow through for the graphics... )
emotional evaluation: thankful

<3 Anderson Cooper  
Just a couple of Anderson Cooper graphics/wallpapers + one celebrating the cuteness of Stephen Colbert and Anderson together:



'Excuse me Senator, I'm sorry for interrupting,' )

ETA: Drive-by rec, [ profile] karanguni has written a gorgeous piece of Rahm Emanuel mentoring Anderson Cooper, and it includes this on Prop 8:


When there's another vote in California and the courts and the people and the churches are all on fire over do-gay-people-get-to-get-married, Cooper calls, and Rahm wants to not pick up. So he picks up.

'Don't ask me for my opinion,' he says directly. 'I'm not going to give it to you. And where the fuck are you, Baghdad? Speak up, I can't hear shit.'

'I'm at a protest!'
Anderson shouts at him. There's a noise like someone's just shoved him into someone who's shoved a signboard into his face, and Rahm kind of wants to be there to beat people off. 'Word from the ground, Rahm. The people are angry! And if you guys keep waffling in Washington --'

'We're all for civil rights,' Rahm says, patiently even though he wants to break his pen in half and say something that may almost, almost be sorry. Cooper's so fucking alone in his apartment because of all these reasons, and somedays Rahm sends him boxes from Eli's without Cooper having to dedicate 59 of 60 Minutes to him, but cake is a very different thing from constitutional enabling.

Gifts for leonidaslion: Suite!Verse.  
Just a couple of graphics inspired [ profile] leonidaslion and her incredible Suite!Verse which is a gloriously dark and beautiful 'verse in which Sam has fully become the Antichrist, in both powers and personality, and Dean is imprisoned not only by force, but also by the obsessive love they both still have for each other.

The two graphics are alternate versions of each other, and the text in the first comes from the title of the latest installment.

The Press of Your Lips Has Left Frost on My Heart. )

Does the Antichrist dream of atomic flames? )

If you aren't already reading it, you should definitely go and start immediately!

So much work to do
I don't know if I can
Trying so hard, so hard, so hard
But I'm just one man.
