Of course it's up there with my top films of all time ever, but I'm watching the sublime Amelie on tv again right now, and kinda wishing i could be bothered to get up and put the DVD on instead...

in which there are crappy subtitles )

Odd, too, that last night was the final ep of the Amelie-inspired Pushing Daisies over here...

daisies, daisies, daisies... )

So sad...

... that I felt the need to compare, but Taylor Swift's blank zombie expression in the Love Story video is bugging the hell out of me.  The lyrics keep reminding me of a blanded down, completely-missing-the-point version of Mindy McCready's Romeo.  Also, that was written by Matraca Berg (=instant country classic goodness).

(just wound up reading what happened to McCready... gawd, no wonder she hasn't released anything in yonks.  Something of a country diva cliche, sadly, once you add up all the domestic abuse, suicide attempts, arrests and prescription drug abuse. Don't remember reading a word of it when it happened, which makes it kinda ironic that the only video of her singing Romeo on Youtube is the UK tv appearance on the Lottery show.  That was kinda surreal.)

And, also kinda on the subject of tweeny divas, out of Hillary Duff's Reach Out and Miley Cyrus's Fly on the Wall.. er, I think Miley strangely emerged with a tad more dignity intact, despite spending the video running from paparazzi.   Hillary has a whole freaky!Britney thing going on when, let's face it, it's hard to be more freaky than Britney herself right now (Circus=boring.  But I'm kinda intrigued by the whole If You See Amy  furore...

Lost 5x06 ramblings... )

Just to cap off a seriously confusing night of TV, there was an exceedingly silly ep of Bones (but only in the slot when I had been watching the equally silly Hustle, so that's alright then) with conjoined twins! and circuses! and Brennan and Booth had to go undercover! As a knife throwing act! Daft but sadly very watchable, if not remotely believable.  There was a sidecar and motorbike too. the mind boggles.

I can't really be bothered watching Sarah Connor at the US  pace at the mo, so tonight was Alpine Fields - fabulous stuff, actually.  All the things I watch this show for - the time loops feeding back and forward onto themselves (why does no one ever mention Heinlein's All You Zombies in this show? Terminator was the first thing I thought of when I read that story), slightly spoilery )
Dollhouse... )
