I am missing my phone, so I am looking for another one, possibly as an early Christmas present from my parents. I really liked my San Francisco II (which I think was a rebadged ZTE crescent). It cost about £100, if I remember correctly, and I wouldn't want to spend much more than that, which gives me a pleasingly small amount of choice. It's still a larger amount of choice than I've had before, so I'd quite like some help. Any recommendations for phones that:

  • Cost less than £130 for pay as you go (I'm on Orange)
  • Use android
  • Are not too large, the San Francisco II was only about 59mm across and that was a very good size for my hands and my pockets


I use my phone for wifi access (3G only in emergencies), taking photos, mostly of my books as reminders so it doesn't need to be tooooo swanky a camera, the Kindle app, sometimes watching videos, which was the one area where my previous phone fell down as it quite often stuttered too much to watch some files.

So far the Orange phone shop (where I can spend my £9.50 phone fund before the end of November!) is showing me a Sony Experia E, a Samsung Galaxy Young Blue (???? that seems a silly name) (oh hang on blue is the colour, not really the name), and a Samsung Galaxy Fame. I shall look for reviews, but I'd prefer personal recommendations.

I finished Orange is the New Black, which I keep calling orange is not the only black. I love Piper. I love that she's pathetic and needy and narcissistic and self-absorbed. I hate her fiance. Spoilers. )

I'm trying to stay up until Downton Abbey comes online and watch it before I go to bed.

Summer TV

Summer is the time when American TV goes away and in a fit of desperation I revisit shows from the past few years that I passed on when there were actual choices.

I watched my way through seven series of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. This wasn't something I had actively chosen against before, just it had never really been on my radar. It turns out it is great. They are all terrible, terrible people and very very funny. I like that Sweet Dee is also terrible and they are terrible to her, she isn't just The Girl standing there being disapproving.

I am quite enjoying Melissa and Joey, which is Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence being a congresswoman and her nanny and quite nice together. They aren't doing any stupid sexual tension (I assume that's a yet, I am only halfway through the first series) between them, and while there are jokes about emasculated man doing women's work it is not the main thing, and they are not all that common.

I am thoroughly enjoying Awkward too, which is a teenage girl who gets high school notoriety when an accident is interpreted as a suicide attempt. It rips off a huge amount of teen films but does it very well. There are boys, which is inevitable but still a shame, but I only had to shout "stop it, he's a bellend" twice. (She didn't listen.) One of her two friends is Asian, and therefore has all the stereotypes of pushy parents and not being allowed out anywhere, so most of the time the show just forgets she exists, which is shit.

Having pretty much hated Gilmore Girls except for Michael DeLuise (oh how I love Michael DeLuise, and Peter DeLuise of course), I am surprising myself by liking Bunheads. Spoilers, sorry for not doing that before. )

I'm also somewhat lethargically watching Smash. I quite like it when I'm watching it, but I have no particular attachment to it.

Oh, oh! I downloaded Stacked, which is the sitcom where Pamela Anderson works in a bookstore. I really enjoy it. It's very nineties, and Pamela Anderson is very funny, and her character plays with the bimbo stuff and she is sweet and brave and kind of selfish sometimes. I had heard it was terrible, and it isn't.

I haven't watched The Newsroom, I'm just deciding to believe everything bad I read about it online. It's very convincing criticism.

Shows I am still not desperate enough to watch - Baby Daddy, Men at Work. I have belatedly added Rules of Engagement to that after braving it through half a series. I like the married couple, but David Spade and the engaged couple are SO DIRE that I cannot cope. I am considering starting on Weeds.
slemslempike: (Default)
I have just finished Wizards of Waverly Place. Frankly the last episode was rubbish. Spoilers. )

I don't really know what to do now, four series later. Well, I'm watching my way through the first series of Seaquest despite the lack of DeLuises, as it has the presence of Stephanie Beacham. And I have my weekly fixes of American TV, even if it's mostly ended. ) And American TV will mostly end soon too. I gave up on Bones because it was SO BORING.

I have a lot of DeLuise things to watch, but I'm saving them for emergencies.

Looking into booking my first night's accommodation in Tashkent, I found a recommendation for this place: http://tashkent-apartment.com/ But if you scroll down the page, their last comment is "Note: We allow no harlotry", and while it's not my actual plan to go there and harlot it up, what if that changes and my harlotry is constrained?

My Two Dads. )

Class Cruise. )

Hard Time. )

Encino Man. )
slemslempike: (Default)
Films
He is in several films, but I haven't managed to see many of them. I have elsewhere mentioned He Was a Quiet Man, in which Michael DeLuise appears briefly and fuzzily and doesn't even SPEAK, and Bloodsuckers where he has a small role as some sort of vampire transporter who is slightly good at the end. Morally good, that is. He is WONDERFULLY good the whole way through every scene he is in.

Ambition to Meaning. )

The Man Without a Face. )

Films not yet seen. )

Wayne's World and Encino Man will be easy enough, and Circle is on DVD here but it doesn't look overly appealing so I'm holding off for a bit. I am very slowly getting hold of Hot Stuff but the others elude me. I am ESPECIALLY cross that Class Cruise is not forthcoming, as it sounds amazing. From imdb: "A few pupils from County High are selected to be the first to go on a study cruise, a privilege that formerly was reserved for members of private schools." CLASS WARFARE ON A BOAT. Why oh why has this not been re-released into the cinema in the manner of dreadful Titanic, let alone one teeny little DVD release. Or I'd take VHS, even. I'm not asking for the moon here.

One or two-off appearances in TV shows
These are less frustrating than the films, because he is in each of the episodes for a reasonable amount of time, sort of a guest star of the week sometimes. They are still somewhat frustrating, because the plot is seen as wrapped up just because the rubbish main characters have moved on, instead of following the brilliant DeLuise-played character through the rest of his natural life.

Lost, CSI: NY. )

Las Vegas. )

He is also in TV with his family. Stargate SG-1, 3rd Rock from the Sun. )

Amazing Stories. )

Unseen TV. )

Haunted pretends it's downloading but I know really it's not. I have heard of LA Law and My Two Dads but never seen any of either. The rest are utter mysteries. Is Sunset Beat a cop spin-off from Sunset Beach? I hope so. That would be awesome. I hope the homeless girl with flawless skin, make-up and clothing shows up a lot.

Recurring roles in TV
These are the best value DeLuise for your buck. Or for your download gbs. HOURS of TV shows that he's in. It's especially good because imdb will tell you exactly which episodes Michael DeLuise is in, so you don't have to sit through lesser mortals in your quest for brilliance.

JUMP! Street. )

Seaquest )

Brooklyn South. )

Gilmore Girls. )

Some of my Best Friends. )

NYPD Blue. )

He is also in two series from the 1980s that I can't find anywhere, and probably never will. One of the Boys is apparently about "an independent, motorcycle-riding Cuban/Venezuelan female who left her rich family to come to America". Frankly, I would watch that even if a DeLuise hadn't been anywhere near it. Michael DeLuise appears to play her stepson, improbably called Luke Lukowski. There are unaccountably only 6 episodes of that. Then there's One Big Family, which made it to a full 25 episodes, where Michael DeLuise seems to play a grandkid of a retired comedian.

OH GOD it seems so unfair that I will probably never see everything he's ever been in. I went and looked on the NY Museum of TV and Radio to see if they had episodes in their catalogue, but they didn't. I'm sort of relieved because it would have been absolutely ridiculous to go to America to go and sit in a room to watch TV and I'm glad I don't have to decide whether or not I'm actually that committed.
slemslempike: (jump: Penhall the Beautiful)
I am on a bit of a Michael DeLuise kick at the moment. I am still watching Brooklyn South, which is more nuanced than I gave it credit for, and yesterday and today I watched the 8 episodes on youtube of Some of My Best Friends, where Michael DeLuise is the slightly homophobic, if well-meaning, friend of an Italian-American young guy who has initially unwittingly moved in with a gay man, who is played by Jason Bateman. It's just rather cute and lovely, and mostly about Michael DeLuise and his friend learning not to be so prejudiced, and Jason Bateman and his friend making cuttingly funny remarks whenever they forget. (Don't worry, neither of the gay men get to have sex, or even a boyfriend. Phew!)

Also I watched He Was a Quiet Man, because although obviously Christian Slater, William H Macy and Elisha Cuthbert are going to be the stars of that film, Michael DeLuise was listed first, so I figured he'd have a largeish part. NO. After watching the whole thing (which wasn't nearly as clever as it thought it was) I had to go back to the start, as Michael DeLuise was in the credits as the first to appear, but I hadn't seen him. This was because he appears for about FIVE SECONDS behind the credits, in FUZZY BLACK AND WHITE, and DOESN'T EVEN SAY ANYTHING. He unlocked the door to dead Christian Slater's house, though, and really was sort of the focus of the entire film because that's what sets off the flashback. Seriously though, he's described as "starring in" this film elsewhere. He must have... I was going to say a great agent, but as far as I can tell he gets on posters and has billing for films he has almost NOTHING to do with, and it would be much better if he were stealthily in films with really big parts instead.

I saw a very short clip of Peter DeLuise having a cupcake smeared on his face. He took it with aplomb. I am still writing a post about the travesty of a 21 Jump Street film. But I did some link chasing around it, and I found out all this lovely stuff about the proper cast, and I just want to think about it on my own for a bit before I share it. I like reading about and watching Peter DeLuise, and Michael DeLuise (I don't know David DeLuise's work so well but he seems lovely in the family way too) so very much and sometimes things sort of clench at me and I get a little worried about how much I care. Not a lot worried.

I've just watched My First Love with Sue Perkins having piano lessons after not having played for years in order to play at Cheltenham. My two favourite bits were when she talks about Mel. The first bit was how it's hard when a friend goes off and has babies, and reminds you that your life is different, and that you're not heterosexual, and that you're not going to have children (these were two separate points, she clarified). The second was at the end, when she's pulled out emotion to pour into the piece that she wasn't sure she could do, and is talking about what she was thinking about, and the first person she mentions is Mel.
slemslempike: (jump: Oooh)
Last weekend I went to stay with Jen, and we watched all the Peter Deluise I could find. It was great. I love that he still acts. He's mostly a director now, but he clearly loves acting because he has all these little roles in things (and sometimes bigger roles in littler things), and sometimes he even gets to act in things he doesn't direct!

Children of the Night
Two girls go swimming in the flooded crypt of an old church, and in doing so inadvertently wake up a paedophile vampire. Then we go forward a little bit (I think?) and Peter Deluise is a very kind teacher who has a priest friend who has clearly never got over losing Peter Deluise's love. The priest keeps a vampire woman and her lungs-outside-the-body daughter (one of the swimming girls) in his attic. Peter Deluise goes to rescue the other girl from her vampire grandmother. They have to team up to fight the town, who have all turned into vampires, some of whom have sex in cocoons. The day is mostly saved by an old man in a van with a cross on the front. In the morning everything is magically okay again.

Sanctuary
We watched one and a half episodes of this before realising that imdb had LIED and he wasn't in those. Then we watched the one in which he does appear, as a somewhat dodgy purveyor of weird creatures in fridges after the cryochamber broke. He was beautiful, and helpful, as he sold an audio file that could be used to calm the escaped creature. He directed that.

Painkiller Jane
Painkiller Jane has a healing superpower. I think she uses it to solve crime, somehow? In the episode we watched, models were getting ready to go on a catwalk, then one of them collapsed on a catwalk, and the paramedics came. One of the paramedics was Peter Deluise! Again beautiful, and again presumeably helpful as he is in the medical profession, though we stopped watching after that as he wasn't going to be in it any more. Actually, I think the model might have died, but I bet that wasn't his fault. Her last moments were spent in his company, I'd like that. He directed this episode too.

Engaged to Kill
He didn't direct this! This is a film (based on a true story) where a woman is kidnapped for money, and then later after she is free she is stalked more and it's fairly obvious to everyone except those in the film that it's her daughter's boyfriend, who is the original kidnapper in disguise. Peter Deluise plays a boat-selling douche who takes advantage of the kidnapped family's new penury to hike up his cut of a boat. He wears a bright shirt, and later he gets hit on the head with a metal implement on a dock and ends up in a coma. THE FILM NEVER TELLS US IF HE RECOVERED. I bet he did though. Peter Deluise's wife is in this too, as a hypochondriac woman who is convinced to make a complaint about the kidnapped woman's doctoring skils.

Bloodsuckers
This is about vampires in space, and I thought it was pretty good, actually. We actually watched this because Michael Deluise (Deluise mi) was billed as one of the main stars, with his name on the poster and everything. Having seen the film, we have NO idea why his name got to be anywhere near the poster. He is lovely, of course (he's Jen's Deluise), but his role is very small. None of the four main people get to be on the poster. Peter Deluise has an uncredited cameo as Vondi the German Space Tourist, who leaves what seems to be a brothel called "Hard Eight" leading a man on a leash and saying "disappointing, ladies! not very hard at all". He is a funny man and does this VERY WELL.

Highlander
Peter Deluise is in the second episode of this, as a man called Clinch who is the hired bully of a woman who runs a casino, and breaks fingers and threatens to beat people up after they get fired for not cheating. He does this quite well at first, but then the Highlander comes and defeats him effortlessly, which is a bit embarrassing. But it's necessary for the narrative, it's not Peter Deluise's fault.

I now have an episode of Andromeda to watch, and once I have worked out whether the video player I got from my parents worked, I can work my way through his early oeuvre that is only available on tape.

A minor success. )

I went to see The Iron Lady with [livejournal.com profile] katlinel this week. We did not like it. Film spoilers. )

[livejournal.com profile] gair very lovelily sent me a HUGE box of teen fic, so I am reading my way through the Sweet Dreams series. They take me almost an exact 30 minutes to read, which is perfect for lunch breaks and bus rides. They are all exactly the same so far - girl feels she is somehow a bit rubbish, meets a boy, thinks he doesn't like her, falls in love with him, is sad that she's not good enough for him, then it turns out he totally likes her after all, they kiss, the end. It's very soothing. Though there's one called Kiss Me, Creep coming up, which might work slightly differently.

I have seen a video of my nephew sneezing! It is the best sneeze ever, and my life is pretty much complete.

I watched Pan Am last night, and was entirely unimpressed until SPOILER. ) I rather enjoyed Whitney, Two Broke Girls and Up All Night. New Girl was nearly as terrible as Romany said it would be. Nothing is amazing though. The thing that made me laugh most all week was Hamish and Andy falling over on the subway.

Ah! I just looked on imdb to see where I know Cersei in Game of Thrones from, and she was in some episodes of Soldier Soldier. (Her squaddie husband dies, and she has to leave the housing because of it. The wives were very sympathetic about it.) She looked really familiar, and it's all from those three episodes years and years ago. (Though I've seen them more recently than that, as I own the box set of Soldier Soldier. It doesn't disappoint in rewatching.) And now I get to use my Soldier Soldier tag again - especially because Paddy is in GoT too.

I sometimes forget that I live with CHILDREN. Well, 22 year olds. I was sitting in the living room when Matt came in and said, oh, not heading out tonight then, in a tone that suggested surprise. No, for I am clearly happily ensconsed in my blanket on the sofa, with Bones in the DVD player, knitting in my hands, and cake within reach. Also it is HALF PAST NINE. Why would I go OUT so close to bedtime? Fools.

Also, when I have been carefully not reading about what happens, and even foregoing searching to see if the fic that I yearn for has been written, so that watching a series can be a lovely surprise to me, I get rather more than miffed when I am spoiled by the DVD menu screen. An option to watch the extended *spoiler* scene on the same screen as the link to watch the episode in which it happens? THAT IS A TERRIBLE IDEA. This would never have happened if my stupid slow internet hadn't prevented me from downloading the episodes illegally. There should be warning ads for people telling them of the dangers of legally purchased DVDs. YOU WOULDN'T SPOIL SOMEONE'S CAR, OR RUIN THEIR HANDBAG, OR DAMAGE THEIR TELEVISION. WHY WOULD YOU SPOIL THEIR ENJOYMENT OF TELEVISION???

I love Bones. (I am coming up to the end of series 3, and if anyone tells me, or even hints at what happens after that, there will be FURY.) I am writing a proper television post, so mostly I will go into detail there, but it is great. I also watched some Angel to see what that was like, and Booth is really different! It is like acting is involved or something.

I also love listening to It's Your Round which is the Radio 4 panel show that Angus is hosting now. It is magic, he reads out the scores and is sarcastic about people like a proper host. The guests all make up a round and bring it in and then they play it. They have had rounds like guests having to pick a member of the audience who they think will know the answer to a quiz question; what does Miles' [Jupp] dad know; and newspaper headline or cryptic crossword clue. The next show I've got to listen to has Nick Hancock on it! I really like it when he and Angus interact.

Also my housemate caused me to have to walk down and up the stairs to the flat, as he said he'd stepped over a drunk guy sleeping on our steps, and I asked if he was sure he was sleeping and he wasn't sure. When I went down the guy was sitting up and said he was waiting for a cab, so he was fine, but had my housemate checked then I could have just stayed on the sofa.

I'm wearing blue tights with big white stars on today, so I put on a red t-shirt too as a sort of Wonder Woman homage.

I am watching my way through Caroline in the City. I had forgotten, or not noticed the first time round, that it is just relentless in Richard getting wonderful breaks and chances that are then ruined by the others, mostly Caroline. Oh, and on imdb I found that Andrew Lauer, who played Charlie (the assistant on rollerblades), directed a film called Adventures of a Teenage Dragonslayer and put Del, Caroline and Annie in it! I find that very sweet for some reason.

I have half-finished drafts of about four posts, but I am posting a meme in lieu of actual content.

1. What is your occupation right now?

I am a student. I am trying to convince myself that I am a full-time student and should therefore be devoting more time than I am to writing in order to finish, while at the same time trying to convince the Jobcentre that I am a student in name alone and they should definitely give me some benefits. We shall see what they think of the letter my department wrote saying that I have no contact hours.

I watched an episode of Ruby and the Rockits because it keeps being advertised during Make It Or Break It, and they had a father-daughter dance. Is that something that actually happens in America?? It was INCREDIBLY creepy. It wasn't just a school dance where girls brought their fathers, but a dance where the girls took it in turns to dance soppy formal dances ONE AT A TIME with their fathers in a sort of spotlight while everyone else watched. It was not a good show.

Television I actually like. Neither spoilers nor insight. )

What else is going to be coming back? What's new that I don't know about especially in the US? What's oldish that I should find and see?

I have just seen this question on an application form for a research post:

"Please draw an organisation chart showing your position in your present or most recent organisation"

Is this a normal sort of question to expect? Do you think that they would also accept a more abstract representation of my position in my organisation, done in Paint? Mine is me hiding behind a wall from my supervisors, while some students hide behind another wall from me, and we all cower from the funding bodies. In several shades of grey.


I finished watching the first series of Felicity. I wish they'd ALL got hit by buses. They have no notion what reasonable standards of behaviour are, and even the inclusion of Boggle in one episode cannot endear me to them. At one point, they went to do group study IN THE SILENT READING ROOM. Then, when people quite reasonably shushed them, instead of exiting shame-faced, they GIGGLED. Then they had an argument IN THE SILENT READING ROOM. I shall be watching the other series as soon as I remember to download them, but they are all horrible, self-centred idiots. None of them deserve such nice dorm rooms. AND BEN IS NOT REMOTELY ATTRACTIVE.

From Jezebel (where else?):



My usual "sophisticated" sense of humour has clearly abandoned me in my weakened state. Ham! Shaped like a penis!

That Mitchell and Webb Look is on again tonight, which I am looking forward to. Last week I unexpectedly laughed myself silly at the Gary Rhodes sketch.

Earlier today we watched Make It or Break It, the new gymnastics TV drama from the US, and it was GREAT. There was gymnastics, obviously, with brilliant cuts between the faces and the actual bodies during their moves. There was a bitchy gymnast who'll happily fuck over her friends to get to the top, a perfect very-in-control gymnast whose only ambitions are to do gymnastics, and a more friendly gymnast who was having an ILLICIT RELATIONSHIP WITH A BOY. There is also a new gymnast, who is a threat, and her leotards are STORE-BOUGHT. The other gymnasts' leotards are not store-bought. They come through sponsorship deals, and they are SO VERY GLITTERY. Dr Malachi from ER was the coach. There were dirty deeds and the wonderful triumph of the will over the weakness of the flesh. I cannot WAIT for the rest of the series. (Before its cancellation, probably.) ALSO why did no-one tell me they were making a TV series of 10 Things I Hate About You? I love that film.


Is there some sort of add-on that will automatically uncollapse the threads on IMDB?

I am pretending to write my (now six days overdue) conference paper, while watching Where's Elvis This Week on youtube. It is weird. It's a sort of panel show hosted by Jon Stewart, filmed in the US but as far as I can tell only aired in the UK. It only lasted for five episodes. This is probably because there is no desk, no clearly delineated rounds and worst of all no points. What were they thinking?

It's from the autumn of 1996, and Diana is alive, Fergie is on the front of newspapers, Tony Blair seems like a hopeful young chap, and there is derision at the idea that John Major could possibly have an affair. The whole point of the show is to talk about British/American cultural differences, and it's okay, but a bit dull and obvious. The guests are odd. Each episode had one woman (out of four guests), but for four of the five episodes the female guest was on the American side, so it was peculiar. The episode with the British woman was also the worst episode. But then the woman was Lowri Turner, who I'm sure is capable of bringing down any television show you care to name with an appearance. (I love the way the wikipedia article points out that it was surprising that Daily Mail readers picked up on her racism.)

The majority of the male guests were comedians, (Arthur Smith, Armando Iannucci, David Baddiel etc), while none of the women were. This really irks me. It happens a lot on The Panel as well. I do mostly like the women who are on that, but it's just really obvious that there's this weird split between women and comedians.

Last week's News Quiz, though, had Sandi in the chair of course, and then Sue Perkins and Carrie Quinlan! I think that's the first time I've ever heard that. Even before, when Simon Hoggart hosted, it was rare to get two women at the same time (I remember Sandi remarking on it when she was finally allowed to be on a team with Linda Smith), and three is very nice indeed. And it was good, as though it were a perfectly normal occurence and not a hideous feminism-gone-mad, what about the menz tragedy.

My train was sufficiently delayed that I was unable to attend the recording that was the only reason I came doen to London in the first place. I am trying to buck myself up by being reasonable, and pointing out that I've seen Stewart Lee before, several times, and that in fact I've probably seen this specific material before because Scrambled Egg was a preview for it and I saw that twice, and in any case it's going to be televised, so it's not like I'm not going to see it. It's not helping.

Those who, like me, miss tmwrnj hugely, can see a tmwrnj reunion gig on youtube, which is lovely. (I didn't get to see that either.)

I thought I would get here and see what theatre was on, but there's nothing I wanted to see. Bill Bailey was £40 and finished too late, and Stewart Francis was sold out. I'm going to find something to eat.

2008 Books

Jan. 3rd, 2009 11:12 pm
slemslempike: (books: slemslempike)
Last year I read 126 books, which is the latest in a pattern of less reading these days. I read 244 books in 2005, then 224 in 2006, and 134 last year. This year 13.5% of the books were rereads, compared to about 2% last year.




I wish I had been doing something productive with the lost reading time, or indeed had been reading more (or even something approaching enough) for work, but this is not the case. I've been online a LOT.

In 2009 I would like to be reading more again. I want to make a significant dent the massive number of unread books I have in my room, as it is starting to bother me that there are so many of them. I want to read them, indeed they were bought with that express aim in mind, but somehow it hasn't happened yet.

However, I also want to reread my Elsie J Oxenhams, with a view to selling them unless I find myself dramatically more attached to them once the reading is done, which I have to say isn't very likely. While I do quite enjoy them, I fear that I mostly had them because of their value, and frankly I'd rather have the money (and shelf space) at this point. The main sticking point is that I know that it's going to be monstrously difficult (and expensive) to replace them if at a later date I want to

I think I'll keep The Abbey Girls, and perhaps any others I wrote about for my MA, and then I will try to be ruthless about everything else. (I will probably post a list up of what I have at some point. Then people can let me know if they're after a particular title, and I'll notify them once I've got a price - I'm afraid they won't be particularly cheap, so no pressure or anything like that.)

(My word, Craig Charles was beautiful in the early series of Red Dwarf. Apparently he's in Corrie now.)

I have been trying to remember where I found the link to this story for ages, and in the absence of any sort of inspiration whatsoever, I thought I would ask if anyone can help.

It's a back-in-England Narnia story where cut for people who like their childhood memories rather less tragic. )

The Radio Times website says that it was the Buzzcocks I saw being recorded tonight, but I haven't watched it because I was at home with my mamma who I didn't think would like it very much at all.

I have a cough. This is not good. I don't want to be ill on the weekend - still less do I want to disturb other people's sleep when I myself make such a babyish fuss about noise.
