i've been sobbing over fictional characters again

watched the second half of north & south again. richard armitage doing his broody thing.. and that heavenly voice and accent. the long 'a's (wiki says he's a leicester man :) the 'a's did remind me of selby!).  baked a caked in the microwave which we have discovered also has some oven-like properties. turned out alright. chocolate banana cake. just the thing for this weather we're having. rain rain all day long. :) and now i'm mentally swooning over mr armitage's acting prowess, his distinctive silhouette, dreamy eyes... so pretty.

what now? back to my book i go. now on book 4 of the song of ice and fire series: a feast for crows. this seems to be the one that's especially full of/about strong female characters. asha greyjoy (i love her! she reminds me of vidya balan), brienne of tarth, margaery tyrell, cersei lannister (i hate her! she things she's so clever but she's not), the sand snakes, arianne martell, arya stark, sansa stark, gilly...

speaking of which: thornton's mum! - what a woman. i'm so glad i finally have the dvd. good buy.

3 things

reading (a storm of swords part II) blood and gold. about 1/3rd of the way in and 3 people are dead already. i forgot the "no one is safe" rule. anyone can die, anytime. i forgot and it snuck up on me. total WTF moment.

watched a christmas play. some of the same actors as last year. really well done for a local church production. detailed sets. people really cared about making it entertaining. i'd go again next year! it's fun spotting the same people year after year... 

one of the actors reminded me of tracie thoms. but googling tracie thoms christmas songs yields not that much... i really want to hear the tracie thoms version of white christmas. rewatched all 13 episodes of wonderfalls so the need for tracie has come to me. i want more thoms in my life! 

preferably tracie thoms and lee pace. in the same thing. again. *sigh* that would be glorious! what say santa?

naked as we came

watched 7 films over 2 days at the chennai international film festival. (as far as i remember) 5 of which contained nudity. bodies are fascinating. 

how the same bits can look fully different on different people. uneven boobs. barely there boobs. saggy boobs. hairy backs. hairless chests. crooked teeth. large feet. stubby fingers. visible ribs. concave bellies. wobbly bellies. bums. 

so beautiful though. anything short of completely obese/skeletal is a good visual. bodies are pretty things.

the pinkerton diaries and alone III  -  a look into the mind of rivers cuomo in the form of a dissertation style book and cd package. it is pure porn for graphic designers/weezer lovers. the description itself is mouthwatering: 237 Pages • 3-Pound Cloth Binding • Hardback Book • 26-Track Audio CD • Exclusively Available from • First Edition • Hand Numbered. they bloody described the heft of it! hand fucking numbered! unreleased demo tracks! want. but for $75 dollars i dont think so. *fingerscrossed* for a cheapier paperback + cd option eventually.

LOL i'm like an advert. but seriously this should be epic :) im currently listening to pinkerton again and everytime i do it seems more relevant to me and life and everything. i first listened to the album after reading a multi paged feminist article hating on him. and then i was all wtf there's nothing wrong with this! this is awesome! should have known the guy who wrote island in the sun could never disappoint. the man speaks the truth.

like in pink triangle when he says:
"I'm dumb, she's a lesbian
I thought I had found the one
We were good as married in my mind
But married in my mind's no good"
apart from the lesbian bit, i've been there.

but when i sang butterfly to a friend she said he sounds like an abuser...
"I'm sorry for what I did 
I did what my body told me to 
I didn't mean to do you harm 
Every time I pin down what I think I want it slips away 
The goal slips away " was probably the lack of context. you need the whole album. i dont think butterfly sounds like that.

ps. lolol just found this and he actually uses the word "hefty" himself :D
