so I saw Shawshank for the first time...  
... SOMEONE TELL ME THERE'S RED/ANDY FIC IN THE WORLD. Because, seriously - no offence King, Darabont, FREAKING MORGAN FREEMAN, you might have intended differently - I could not watch this as anything other than a gay romance. I tried. It was made in the nineties! It's about prison! But you could move a mountain and still not convince me that Andy and Red did not love each other. THE END. SERIOUSLY.

I also didn't realise, until Mik uploaded the song for Ryan and Brendon's wedding, that Peter Gabriel sang Solsbury Hill. I have pretty much thought until now that Pete Gabriel and Peter Gabriel were the same person, and wondering if the former had some sekkrit musical talent everyone else in the world bar me was privy too. UM, OOPS? MY POP CULTURE FAIL, LET ME SHOW YOU IT.

I'm in the same amount of disbelief as Helen! Seriously, why!

But oh man, I love that film so much. Though, I can't say I've ever wanted fic for it. ;) Though, they totally did love each other, in some way or another. I think I'd like to read the book sometime but I'm just kind of worried about how much more sad than the movie it will make me.

...There's a Pete Gabriel?

I just ... never did. I saw the bit where Red digs up the box once on TV, though, if that counts?

Why? Does someone ELSE die in it? I was convinced Andy was going to kill himself, actually.

OMG I AM SO DUMB. Why did I think that was Peter Andre's last name?!!

I don't think so, but I know it explores Andy's time in prison more and I don't know if I would be able to read about it.

Oh LOL.

I love that Red is called 'Red' because in the book the character is a red-haired Irishman.

IMAGINE MORGAN FREEMAN FROM TIPPERARY.

You know it would work...

LOL HE DOES SAY IN THE FILM THAT HE'S IRISH.

I know several people in Tipp who look like Morgan Freeman! ... not.
