The Devil's handmaiden
here but it's quite random but I can't get over the amount of wankI have a tumblr |
seriously, they have a different wank thing every day and the vast majority of them are brain breaking
I'm not even following that many blogs!
wank topics this week that I noticed
Whether or not casting Benedict Cumberbatch counted as race fail just in case he was Khan, despite the fact that Khan was custom made in a bottle and could have been bright blue (like an andorian)
cliched characterisation - this involved name calling, I swear
there was practically pistols at dawn over the correct use of an apostrophe
How Sterek was illegal and pedophilia because Stiles was 16 (actually I think he's 17 in canon now)
how being mean to Scott in Teen Wolf was racist, especially the scene where Stiles gives Scott water in a dog bowl - but yet when Scott does worse things it doesn't count
and the thing is that the wank trolls are often so blatantly wank trolls, they're stubborn not listening and when they get stuck they start name calling accusing people of ableism (I still don't know what that is) or being racists, pedophiles, nazis
and when they are blatantly out argued they result to reaction gifs and it becomes apparent that they are not listening and they all have very similar user names and I wouldn't be surprised if they were just sock puppet accounts
but you know me, I can't bear people saying stupid things so I poke the trolls, I can't help it.
And the funny thing is rather than have people not follow my blog, it goes the other way around, I got a kudos on the blog for being patient and trying to explain stuff.
but seriously, I never used to get caught up in the trolling, now I am right in the thick of it, and although I want to go around going YOU ARE ALL SO STUPID I think I like it - why else would I keep poking them
The stupid burns, we should just put it out with fire. *nod*
I think ableism is the prejudice against disabled people, although on the internet it usually means "stop calling people idiots, it's offensive to the stupid people"
art thou hiding from me?
you've been quiet and I know you're there now
I'm not hiding, per se, it's just I wanted to go to sleep earlier than usual and so didn't log on. :( It somewhat worked.
What UK detective/crime/mystery shows do you rec?
Wire in the Blood
Dalziel and Pascoe
there's also the mrs bradley mysteries which are set in the 1920's with diana rigg, you'll love them but they're not really crime/detective/mystery
oh, there's Cadfael (medieval monk derek jacobi solving murders)
Whitechapel - the first two seasons were awesome!
they should keep you going for a while
be warned, UK tv is a lot more lax than US tv, and so will show things that the US would never dream of showing ever
we have our tv shows written by ruth rendell and people like that, and bones is considered light enough to show in the early afternoon here.
Wire in the Blood has my headcanon casting as constantine in the lead role and is awesome, but it's very very grue.
I was too wimpy for Wire in the Blood but I have seen Cadfael, Silent Witness, Prime Suspect (both versions), I really really liked Case Histories and I saw Whitechapel at your rec.
What do you think of Copper? It kinda reminded me of a Western.
There was something with Rupert Everett in it a few months back- he plays a minor role, husband of a murder victim, and the main detective was played by a woman I believe was once on Spooks. Does that sound at all familiar?
the rupert everett thing seems to be Black Mirror, but no promises
I didn't watch Copper, it takes a lot to intrigue me, I just don't want tv
I watched a few eps of Ripper Street but it was slow.
Case Histories is running season 2 NOW!
Wire in the Blood does require some guts of steel but it's so worth it
one of the very early eps has dougray scott in it
Try Dalziel and Pascoe, or Taggart (although you'll probably need subtitles and still never guess the murderer as it's in high glaswegian)
Jason Isaacs- I like him from Awake.
ah see, i noticed him as creepy doctor sure to survive, whoops no, now he's a ceiling ornament in Event Horizon
and then he gained notoriety as being luscious malfoy (sic)
I watched a couple of eps of awake, but wasn't fussed
i'm in tv wasteland at the moment, all the shows i was sort of half watching are done for the season and teen wolf doesn't start for like three weeks, so I'm watching leverage.... i knew i was better off just watching hustle and leaving it be
it's so cheesy, i can't decide if it's a comedy or not
what am I thinking
see if you can find Messiah
