*le gasp*

I changed my header; it now features the luscious Jensen Ackles from the hit television series, Supernatural. And before you ask, yes... Hell just froze over. And that pretty boy at the top of the page is responsible for it. Well... actually Castiel is the one responsible, with Dean playing his part in the whole deal.

Credit for the header has been added to my profile.

ETA: Correction... The header now features both of the Winchesters. I just couldn't leave out Sammy. LOL.

ETA 2: I finally found a Castiel header to go with my layout. Fuck yeah! Major thanks going out to [livejournal.com profile] madeira  for this; she resized the header for me so that I was able to use it on my journal.

In other news, I finally got tired of waiting for AmazonUK to put up their exclusive version of the fourth series of Doctor Who to pre-order. So I ordered the HMV version instead. Not really much of an improvement cover-art wise, but meh... It's an exclusive. That keeps the obsessive little Whovian collector within me happy. LOL.

And now, for your viewing pleasure, I present to you a fanservice moment; compliments of one Mr. Dean Winchester.

Try not to drool too much, ladies. )

Mr. Kripke, sir, you have made me one happy fangirl - and that was just with the first episode. I honestly don't know if my fangirl brain is going to be able to handle the rest of this season - especially with two hotties who register as 'badass!demon-hunter' and 'badass!cosmic-angel' pairing up. In fact, there's a distinct possibility that I may use up all of my tiem lord regenerations before we even hit December.

I'm counting on you, flist, to keep me alive and coherent.
Well, how's everybody doing? Did you have a good weekend? Y/N? I'm doing a lot better, myself. I was pissed-off something terrible about an event that took place on livejournal, but a few members on my lovely flist ultimately helped to calm me down. Thanks so much for listening to my rant, guys. You all are truly something special, and I love every single one of you. ♥

Now then - what's going on with me? Well...

1. My Panthers took down Chicago. We're now 2-0!
2. I'm having fangirl fits over the new series, Merlin, which is supposed to premiere this coming Saturday. Anthony Head... Guh.
3. I finally got my custom frame - which means that I should be posting pictures shortly.
4. My brother cooked both my mother and I a wonderful dinner Saturday.
5. House premieres tomorrow. Squee!
6. Supernatural premieres Thursday! *flail*
7. I've recently realized that I want the next guy I date to be bisexual - and asian. LOL!
8. I want my own Chief Tyrol...
9. I'm madly in love with the series, The Shield. Such a superb, and morally complex drama.
0. I recently learned that a guy whom I ran into several times during D*C was Gerard Way - and I didn't even recognize him. DX

So, yeah... I'm in a pretty damn good mood. :)

Jack: I gotta go. I gotta find the Doctor.
Gwen and Ianto: [just simply look at Jack]
Jack: I'll come back.
Gwen and Ianto: [continues looking at Jack]
Jack: I'm coming back!
Gwen: Don't worry about us. Just go.
Ianto: We'll be fine.
Jack: You better be.

That's right, my beautiful flist. This journal is going to be on hiatus until September 2nd. No need to fret though. I'll still be posting replies and such until August 27th. After that, I'm off to Dragon*Con which is taking place down in Atlanta. I'll be sure to post a full report along with some glorious pictures once I return.

Farewell, everyone. I'll see you guys in a week~

Yeah, I changed my journal layout to that of the delicious -- or so Jack tells me -- Ianto Jones

*stares and looses train of thought*

*shakes head*

Err... where was I? Oh, right... Credit for the layout has been given in my profile. Speaking of, I changed my profile layout as well; I also added two three many scrumptious Janto animations to my sidebar. 

*motions over to the left side of the screen*

Thanks to those, I can now only work on my journal when my father's out of the family room. Why? Because the ripe old bastard's homophobic... 

*rolls eyes* 

Don't get me started...

But, seriously, look at that. That there defines the word "hotness." Guh...


Now then, time for the meat of my post: Episode ratings for Doctor Who series 4, and Torchwood series 2.

Those of us here in the states just got the DrWho episode Journey's End this past Friday, and I gotta say -- WOW. Such a powerful, emotional, and bittersweet finale. I was literally left in tears. So, after watching it -- twice -- I was compelled to rate all of the episodes of the latest series of both DrWho and Torchwood; here they are:

Torchwood Series Two

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang - 9/10
Sleeper - 6/10
To The Last Man - 8/10
Meat - 7/10
Adam - 8/10
Reset - 8/10
Dead Man Walking - 9/10
A Day in the Death - 7/10
Something Borrowed - 5/10
From Out of the Rain - 6/10
Adrift - 9/10
Fragments - 10/10
Exit Wounds - 10/10


Doctor Who Series Four

Partners in Crime - 7/10
Fires of Pompeii - 6/10
Planet of the Ood - 7/10
The Sontaran Stratagem - 9/10
The Poison Sky - 9/10
The Doctor's Daughter - 6/10
The Unicorn and the Wasp - 7/10
Silence in the Library - 8/10
Forest of the Dead - 8/10
Midnight - 10/10
Turn Left - 9/10
The Stolen Earth - 10/10
Journey's End - 10/10

After rating all of the episodes between the two series, it's easy to see that this was one HELL of a year for both. I'm on pins-and-needles waiting for Torchwood series three. I'm anxiously awaiting the four Doctor Who specials we're supposed to get in 2009 along with this year's Christman Special as well. Also, I hope beyond all that David will stick around for series 5. However, if he does decide to leave, I'm still going to stick with the series. Who knows, maybe the next person to take on the role will be just as good as him. You never know, right?

I've changed my layout to that of a Supernatural theme; credit belongs to [personal profile] riddley

Also, I received the following DVDs in the mail:

Batman Begins - Limited Edition Gift Set (Blu-Ray)
Stargate Atlantis - The Complete Fourth Season
Wire in the Blood - The Complete Fifth Series

A picture of the above is under the cut.

The lenticular on the front of the BB box is superb; it's basically the same one that was used for the BestBuy exclusive version of the film when it was first released on regular DVD. Also, I love the postcards that came with the box set -- particularly the one of Batman standing on the side of the building (fourth one from the left). Another great thing about this set is the fact that you get to see the first six minutes of The Dark Knight in hi-def (*insert fangirl squee here*). Money cash was also included for said film so that you can see it free of charge. 

In other words, this box set was well worth the $34 that I dished out for it.

As for SGA season 4, the artwork on the front of the box is great-- although the second season box is still my favorite overall (I have a thing for shiny boxes). The WitB box on the other hand is a bit bland (as usual I might add). However, the pictures on the inside digi-pack are nice; they're in warm colors, and they feature the four main cast members of the series.

After a year of being MIA, this layabout has finally made her way back to LJ... And she finds that it's time for a few changes.

First of all, this journal is no longer of the "friends only" variety. I found that to be somewhat pretentious of me for some reason, so I decided to unlock my journal so that everyone is free to come in and comment as they please; all I ask is for you to behave yourself, and at least try to act mature. And yes, fangirl-y squee is also welcome-- just don't go overboard. Friending is also always welcome, just please let me know so that I may friend you back. 

Second: the main uses for this journal are going to be for posting pictures of my ever growing collection of collectible merchandise. This, of course, will include: DVDs, autographs, manga/comics/graphic novels, posters/wallscrolls, figures, etc. Collecting various items from my favorite television series has become my main ever-consuming hobby, and I would very much like to share my collection with other people. Hopefully, I'll come across others who share this passion as well. 

The first pictures of my collection shall be posted shortly; I'm still waiting for a few DVDs to come in the mail, along with a few exclusive autographed stamp-covers from Doctor Who that I just ordered. Hopefully, the pictures will be up by the end of the month. 

Third: I'm going to also use this journal to document some huge upcoming trips that I'm currently planning. The first may very well be to Williamsburg, VA-- namely Jamestown (although I may also swing by Busch Gardens for the hell of it). After that, I'm going to see the Dead Sea Scrolls in Raleigh, and in March I'm going on an exclusive ghost-hunting trip to the Waverly Hills Sanatorium (as featured in Ghost Hunters).

Fourth, and finally: I may very well be posting reviews for episodes from my favorite television series here; the first is expected to be for Doctor Who - Stolen Earth (4x12).

Well, that's pretty much it. So, in closing, it's great to finally be back on LJ. Now, to quote my second favorite vampire, let's get to work.
