Spoiler alert! New scene (not in the book) from DH2 released feat. Snape (who seems to be growing his hair).

Accio Tuesday!

New trailer for Deathly Hallows is here. Tiny Snape! Barefoot Voldemort! No Snape-shaped hole! Dragon! Annoying 3D-snake effects! More Voldemort screams than you can count! Did I mention tiny Snape?

ETA: Watched it again in high res on big screen - might be tiny Petunia, not Snape. I'm confused.

"River, make her blue again!" I love how bizarre that sentence sounds if taken out of context.

Also: "I'm being extremely clever up here and there's no one to stand around looking impressed! What's the point in having you all?" Another one for my list of Peter Pan references. ("Oh, the cleverness of me!")

Again with the Harry Potter associations. Or Jesus (it is Easter after all).

Plus Buffy ("Hush").

"Fizz" and "fez" never sounded so good. I'm completely charmed by Matt Smith's line reading.

I've watched it three times since Saturday. HELP!

ETA: Easter Islands statues! LOL!

ETA2: made my first DW icon!

I LOVED the Vincent van Gogh episode. Here's a beautiful vid by [personal profile] lim : Your Life
Ready for season 6, yay! Plus: I need a new mood theme which includes the 11. Doctor.

 Fact: Doctor Who Season 5 = Best season so far. End of story. Goodbye. The end.

Happy birthday, [personal profile] spes_unica !!! And congratulations again for sword-fighting the thesis!!!

Fail: In the otherwise quite brilliant recent BBC adaptation of Jane Eyre, they shrinked from having Rochester disguise himself as a fortune teller but have him seated behind a curtain to observe what the old woman he has hired for the job finds out about the various house guests and Jane. Of course, this is something that is easier done in a novel - it could be absurd in a film if the actor is too easily recognisable. But in the novel, he basically hides behind his costume and you could do the scene in near darkness.
Excerpt: "[H]er hat-brim partially shaded her face, yet I could see, as she raised it, that it was a strange one. It looked all brown and black: elf-locks bristled out from beneath a white band which passed under her chin, and came half over her cheeks, or rather jaws: her eye confronted me at once, with a bold and direct gaze."
It's kind of the point that he enjoys 'analysing' all the women. Jane's response after the reveal: "I believe you have been trying to draw me out--or in; you have been talking nonsense to make me talk nonsense. It is scarcely fair, sir."

And on a lighter note: The new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 4!!!!!

"Are we equals?" Judi Dench and Daniel Craig in spot commissioned for International Women's Day:

Doctor Who spoof starring Rowan Atkinson et al as the Doctor, Red Nose Day 1999, written by Steven Moffat. Bless the British and their fondness for scatological humour.

Tumblr - I still don't get it. So you can activate a 'reply' button (which can only be used by your followers), but you can't post a comment on your own entry, i.e. you can't reply to any comments made by other users...?

Oh, dear. Our minister of defence, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, is being accused of having plagiarised his doctoral thesis. Truly sad: His introductory paragraph was lifted from an article in the daily newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung  - at least it's one of the better newspapers, but Merlin's beard, at least try to come up with your own opening sentence!

Witty speech by Stephen Fry and well put-together montage of film clips, but what's with the crappy background music?
grinning_soul: detail of "The Young Queen and the Page" by Maxwell Armfield, 1904 (O RLY?)

Summary of The Lunatic, the Lover, and the Poet by Myrlin Ambrosia Hermes (ISBN 78-0061805196):

"A poet and divinity scholar at Wittenberg University, Horatio is able to
argue both sides of any intellectual debate, but he himself, a skeptic, never fully believing in one philosophy. That is, until he meets the Prince of Denmark, an outrageous, provocative, and flamboyantly beautiful young man who teaches Horatio more about Heaven and earthly pleasures than any of his philosophy books. But when Prince Hamlet attracts the attention of Horatio's patroness, the dark, seductive, manipulative Lady Adriane and when a mysterious rival poet calling himself "Master Will Shake-spear" begins to court both the Prince and his Dark Lady, Horatio must take up his pen to fight for his love and his destiny."

Hamlet plus the Sonnets = WIN! *orders for library*

Daniel Radcliffe really should do more comedy!

So why are we seeing Neville on the Hogwarts Train ...?! I'm actually OK with that - please give us some 'meanwhile at Hogwarts' scenes!

One of the gazillion DH clips we've been given by WB. Seriously, I feel as if I've already seen the whole movie.
Snape runs Voldemort's business (the Death Eaters would be completely lost without him, oh the irony),  Bellatrix is in full fawning mode and I'm going to hell for wanting to move into Malfoy Manor.
