It's helpful when my two Sunday night shows are united by similar visual motifs. 

GoT 3.03 Thoughts )
I really don't have a lot of Mad Men thoughts this week. Other than I think Peggy and Stan's late night calls are my new favorite thing, and definitely the best phone calls since "Pizza House!" Oh and *slow clap* for Trudy Campbell. Trudy Campbell for the Iron Throne! Still, not enough Joan. Moar Joan.

 It's that time of year again when they air Mad Men and Game of Thrones on at the same time and I spend my Sunday evenings binging on tv and my Mondays in an internet black hole reading everyone's reaction posts. Man, are these shows begging for a crossover or what? Basically because I want Sally Draper and Arya Stark to be besties. Sally would learn that as much as it sucks to be a teenage girl in the 1960s, it sucks even more to be a teenage girl in Westeros. And Arya could add Don Draper to her growing collection of inappropriate father figures, maybe offer up Pete Campbell to the God of Many Faces. It would be awesome. (actually Pete is too much fun to receive the "gift"...Joan's ex-husband on the other hand....)

 Well, I got some disappointing news today- found out I am not a finalist for my dream post-doc. It would have been two years of a super sweet deal attached to this institute at a fancy pants university in the NE. I'm trying to remain zen about it all- these things are a crapshoot like anything else in academia, and hey, at least I have some interviews lined up. But, I'm still a bit bummed not to have made the first cut, 'cause dammit my project, it is made of awesome. 

So, in light of dispiriting events, both national and personal, I thought it might be fun to do a MEME! Because memes and fandom make everything better. 
  • Post a list of 20 fave tv shows, past and present. 
  • Have your friends guess your favorite character from each show. 
  • When someone guesses your favorite character, bold the title and give one reason why you like that character.
13/20 tv shows remaining... )

So hi new people from the friending meme! Thanks for subscribing to me. I'm still working out the kinks on dreamwidth (and feeling a bit like the Dowager Countess trying to use a telephone) so bear with me. I'll still be posting to LJ, too, and you should feel free to comment wherever you like. I promise to do an "about me" type meme for folks, soon. But for now, let's have fun with this TV Meme I picked up from [personal profile] likeadeuce 

TV Meme! )

Since my last post, I have kinda sorta maybe taught myself to use this new thing called tumblr that all the "cool" kids are using. I'm still not really sure what I'm doing over there exactly.So far as I can tell, it is pretty much the giant timesuck I really don't need in my life right now....'cause I'll write for about a solid ten minutes, get on tumblr, and then it's all like "vintage WPA travel posters, oooh shiny!" and i'm gone for the next half hour. If you want to check out my personal tumblog, there's lots of reblogged cartoons of Downton Abbey, snarky gifs about academia, and ladies in period dress. Also, cute animals. That's pretty much me in a nutshell. I also am the brains behind Academic Nina Garcia

I've also been catching up on all the period dramaz this week.

It's that time of year again- the time when I illegally stream Downton Abbey off the internetz so I can be months ahead of the losers less fannishly obsessed Americans who will patiently wait for PBS to air the series in January. I taught so many people how to stream Downtown last year, it's probably the thing I am most likely to go to jail for. I can never run for public office now. Let the crazy wild speculation begin! Here are my predictions for season 3 based on trailers, interviews, and just general spidey senses about what Julian Fellowes thinks makes for good television.

Don't break up Thomas and O'Brien- they're my favorite couple on the show! )
