All mimsy were the borograves  

*opened Hotmail*

*saw plug for 'The Ultimate Durex condom sampler'*

Because obviously the one thing you want to get via internets is CONDOMS.

You know, when I come to rule the world -- or become the Chief High Generalissimo Advisor Superior or whatever -- ask imadra_blue 'cause I forget -- my first edict will be 'The outlawing of all film adaptations of books EVAR. Except in cases where they are produced for television, are at least six hours long and follow the dialogue and descriptions in the book EXACTLY, in the manner of the Beeb's Pride and Prejudice'.

Yeah, I've just seen the GoF screencaps. And had my fill of the 'Mos Def sucks/rocks' debate.

Am still PWNed by bloody art exhibition. *sporks evilness that is poncy naff CombHINED MateriHALS*

Duh, where else are you going to get teh speshul ones once the penis enlargement pills start working?

I love Beeb's Pride. My library has three copies. I whole-heartedly support your motion, Ms. Chief High Generalissimo Advisor Superior.

Heh, the same pills you bought on internets? That'd work. Two for one deal, even? *brain short-circuts*

Thank you. You I'll keep. :) I've had my own copy since I was nine; 'tis the best thing to watch. If you have six hours spare, o'course.

"The outlawing of all film adaptations of books EVAR."

That has to be the best idea I've heard in forever. (Though I've never seen Beeb's Pride and Prejudice.) But it follows the book exactly? I adore that book! Must see that. (:

All bow to the Chief High Generalissimo Advisor Superior and her most brilliant ideas! *grin*

Literally word for word, dude. It's like watching the book. Like it should be. :) Plus, you get to see Colin Firth in a WET SHIRT!!

See, I assumed you'd be taking the ruling-the-world part. *winks*

Here, here, Generalissimo! (WTF is up with Ron and Harry's long hair? Seriously, wtf?) What's this about Mos Def, now?

Good luck with the art exhibition!!

And Ron looking perpetually stoned!

And Hermione's PINK dress!

And the NO ROBES LIKE AT ALL!

And Cedric looking like he got hit with a Bludger!

Mos Def plays Ford Prefect in h2g2. As a rapper, many believe that he's not well-qualified for the job. Aside from being Black when Ford had red hair, but that was Douglas Adams' own choice, apparently. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm already tired of the wrangling!

Thank you! All systems are go and the teachers are paying me a lot of attention, as one of the <i>very</i> few people who have all, or indeed any, of their work done...:)
Caitcoralia13 on May 6th, 2005 02:32 pm (UTC)
Okay, I don't think I have seen all these pictures! What's your source? The annoying thing is, I know they'll still get my money, even if they're making INFURIATING movies.

I haven't read Hitchiker's Guide, but Martin Freeman (my fav actor from The Office) is in it, and I MUST cheer him on. I watched The Office Christmas Special again last night and couldn't stop grinning for about an hour. Then I talked to Joe for three hours, and still can't stop grinning. Dammit.

Sounds like the exibition is going well! Congrats! Keep us updated!
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 6th, 2005 03:55 pm (UTC)
They're on HPANA, I think. I saw them on various ljs around the place and Hogwarts Elite.

They'll get my money too, dammit.

Yes, I reckon he's totally the wrong accent for Arthur Dent! *sighs gustily* Most people think he fits well, though.

TALKED TO JOE?! I still haven't got my book -- THREE HOURS?

Caitcoralia13 on May 6th, 2005 11:44 pm (UTC)
HPANA?

I will let you know my novice's opnion of Hitchhiker's Guide when I see it, if you like!

Oh, the book will come. So far, I have chapter titles. Chapter 1: infatuation is coming soon! THREE HOURS.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 7th, 2005 02:47 am (UTC)
Yeah, I don't know what that is either... theleakycauldron.org should have them, though!

Do! I will do the same. :)

Infatuation? Hmm. Sounds interesting! ABOUT WHAT?!
Caitcoralia13 on May 7th, 2005 10:18 am (UTC)
AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! PENIS ON YOU BACKGROUND!!!!! (hahahahahahahhaha - I love being five.)

Infatuation for him, I meant. Nothing new.

Am checking out the pictures right now!
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 7th, 2005 01:08 pm (UTC)
*is disapproving* You can't say the Vitruvian man has a penis. That's da Vinci, that is. :/

Caitcoralia13 on May 7th, 2005 10:38 pm (UTC)
umm... He has a penis. It's right there. In black and white. Vitruvian or not, it's there. And isn't that kind of the point? To be perfectly anatomically correct?







And also gay?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 8th, 2005 03:08 am (UTC)
Yes to the perfectly anatomically correct.

Not so much to the gay. It's meant to be both male and female, apparently. :o
Caitcoralia13 on May 8th, 2005 11:21 am (UTC)
*raises skeptical eyebrow*

Da Vinci was gay, though, right? I'm sure I heard that somewhere.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 9th, 2005 01:46 am (UTC)
I'm sure it couldn't have been from anyone WE know! ¬.¬
coppala on May 5th, 2005 07:19 pm (UTC)
Hmm. Condoms-by-internet. More appealing than penis-enlargement-by-internet, but not by much.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 6th, 2005 01:10 pm (UTC)
*goggles* There's penis enlargement via internets? HOW? Like, do people send you encouraging emails -- 'Grow, grow! You can do it!'?!
Jax: boo heeimadra_blue on May 6th, 2005 04:40 am (UTC)
*DED*

I agree. Completely.

You are so cute. *pets*
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 6th, 2005 01:10 pm (UTC)
Coolness.

You are so cute.

I am just going to have to accept this and move on with my life, yeah? :/
Insufferable, man.: billie - incitycynicalpirate on May 6th, 2005 10:01 am (UTC)
My father and I have this rule; it's inadvisable to buy anything on the Net that you would a) wear, or b) put in your mouth.

So, condoms? A big no-no.

'The outlawing of all film adaptations of books EVAR.
Can we have a loophole for good adaptations that have already been made? *makes pretty eyes at the Chief High Generalissimo Advisor Superior*

You can burn all copies of The Little Princess and Ella Enchanted, though. I would do that anyway, as soon as possible.

Art student. *laughs in manner reminiscent of Nelson from The Simpsons*

*le grand sporfle*

Which films would these be, o minion? I shall give due consideration... the Narnia videos may pass muster, even though Lucy's a feckin' eejit in 'em.

Art student.

Did you not know? *raises eyebrows* Only for another week, though. In September I'm going to study medicine.
Insufferable, man.: billie - incitycynicalpirate on May 6th, 2005 02:50 pm (UTC)
Do you mean the scary, animated Narnia videos? Or the new non-animated film, of which I have the (illegal) trailer and I know the girl who plays Susan (she goes to my school)?

Anyway, you know? Turns out both CS Lewis and Roald Dahl were complete bastards when they were alive. I heart Dahl.

Er... I can only think of recent ones, which shows how hideous I am...
Oh, crap. There must be some that truly merit being saved from your furnace of doom... but only LotR springs to mind. Oh, and Harry Potter, just because. All the Disneyfied stuff, because you take the Brothers' Grimm on acid away from me and I will cry. Oh, I am awful. Will think, and then petition you.

I swear Pterry has a book which is also a film. Does he?

Did you not know?
Of course I knew! I was being... you know... me.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 6th, 2005 03:59 pm (UTC)
Neither, though I will probably go to see the non-animated one. I meant the Beeb TV series, with this big fake lion that was basically sewed together out of a bedsheet. I was word-perfect on those from age seven to eleven. :)

Lewis was a complete religious nutcase! Aslan is, like, Jesus, and the Stone Table is the cross. I was so disappointed when I realised that!

There are a helluva lot of mistakes in LotR and HP. LotR is more deserving of saviour, but I would actually rather neither had even been translated onto the big screen. Ever. I don't mind the Disney films so much, I suppose because they really ARE supposed to be for kids.

Which is why I have The Little Mermaid moodtheme.

Yeah, Soul Music and one of the witch ones. Never seen them, though. Don't WANT to!

Ah, phew. xD

Even those words just make me SO ANGRY.

When you rule the world, it will be a better place. And I completly agree with the adapting a book into a movie thing. Although, I think they could make the film for the movie theatre, it just has to follow every single detail of the book. Otherwise it will be like the Harry Potter movies, and it will suck.

OOO I wanna see the screencaps. MY TURN!! (Link me pweeze)
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 7th, 2005 01:10 pm (UTC)
Thank you. And I actually wouldn't mind them being shown in cinemas, so long as they were still long enough to encorporate EVERY detail.

www.theleakycauldron.org has them, I think, as does HPANA, whatever that is. :)
