20 Assorted Icons

I have actually managed to get a set of icons made.  This is for round 3 of [livejournal.com profile] monthlyinspo  It is in many ways hard as we are given a theme of "Dark & Light" .... but I find the hard thing is deciding what images/theme to use.  So this set of 20 are a bit of a missmatched set of themes.  However they are all dark/light ... I hope!

Anyway here are my 3 teasers -

I am meant to be sorting out my house ready for the next set of decorators, either that or answering comments, but instead I have finished off this set of icons for Round 87 0f [livejournal.com profile] character20n20 where I have chosen the character of Hawkeye Pierce from M*A*S*H, the series.

Here are my 3 teasers -

A Writing Meme

debris4spike: (Groucho Marx)
To help take my mind off the limbo that my life has become, I did a meme that I had bookmarked some time ago.  Not something I can do while at home as I amm too focussed on listening for my phone, but here with Dad while he is asleep I can let myself focus elsewhere.

I snagged this from [livejournal.com profile] thenewbuzwuzz ... Here are the rules:

1. Pick 5 fandoms and list them in alphabetical order

2. Visit this site to find your first Random Poem Of Power. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

My 5 fandoms in alphabetical order are -
1 Blakes 7
2 BtVS
3 Hercules
4 MASH
5 Stargate SG1

So here are my attempts ....Read more... )

Glastonbury Abbey

debris4spike: (M*A*S*H)
Sorry I didn't post these yesterday, but I was watching M*A*S*H on TV, and as it was the last episode, I ended up watching it without stopping. When it was first shown here it was just after I left college and it really poignant. Spending 4 years together with friends, yet I knew I wouldn't see many of them ever again. It still reminds me of those days studying to be an osteopath and the great people I was with then.

Anyway, I continue with my trip to Glastonbury.

We went to the Abbey. Like many Abbeys in England it was destroyed by Henry VIII. The building remains are beautiful, as are the couple of the smaller buildings that are still fairly undamaged. We managed to miss the rain, and enjoyed the walk. Plenty of excuses to dig out the camera!

And so to a look around The Abbey )

Glastonbury Tor is on it's way!

I'm not a great TV watcher, but have been enjoying re-watching M*A*S*H.  Last week another channel said it would be re-showing Stargate SG1 ... so I thought "YAY"

However - guess what ..... yes, they are both on at the same time!!

I have them both on DVD, so it's no big problem, just I thought ironic.

Your Favourite Television Programme

Yes, I love BtVS, but have still to see Angel! I love the series, for more reasons than I can list. A great story, good characters you can love and hate ... and James Marsters!

The first series I truly loved was Blakes 7 ... the first TV series I became involved in fandom with. Reading a bit of fan-fic, as well as joining the fan club.



Avon, is my favourite character ... and maybe you can see why -


Other series I love are -
Star Trek, Voyager
M*A*S*H
Stargate SG1
Andromeda
Vampire Diaries

As well as some mini series, such as Wish Me Luck, Danger UXB,

etc
debris4spike: (Spike - ever changing)

Over the last couple of weeks there has been some talk about the BtVS reboot. 

I am one of those who don't want to watch it ... If I love a film or a series, part of why I like it is the combination of the actors, the stories, the film sets etc 

To me Sarah Michelle Gellar is Buffy ... as are all the other actors who were in the series (come on, could anyone replace James?); and Sunnydale was the view that I saw before it was lost in a huge hole.

If they do post-BtVS/Angel, then we are still missing the actors - and for me, as many, we have our own ideas as to post the series.  I have never read the comics - I live in Spuffy fandom.

So, whoever is involved I doubt I will even watch the credits.

I am like it with other things, as well - some films should never be remade, other series, just too iconic.  I will admit I've had to change my mind over V, as I loved the original, and am enjoying the re-make.

M*A*S*H was another thing - I loved the series, saw it first - and hated the film.  Friends have done the opposite - but to me Alan Alda is Hawkeye, etc.

Speaking of which, I posted a andom Meme yesterday and I talked about Spike, Faith and Damon here   Well I have just been asked by [livejournal.com profile] cbtreks  about Hawkeye from M*A*S*H

Hawkeye Pierce )

~~~

And, before I forget - "How Rude" [livejournal.com profile] act3scene1 .... you give me a pressie, but no way of opening the box - LOL  Thank you, very much - That was a lovely start to December for me.

TV MEME - Day 22

Day 22 - Favorite series finale

I first started watching M*A*S*H when it was aired in England in the mid 70s ... then it was running late on a Saturday evening, and even thopugh only a young teen, I was always baby-sitting at my neighbours house - so it was something to watch just before they got home!

I was soon addicted - and when it moved to mid-week I got the whole family watching it (well pre-videos and with 1 TV I had to!). When I was at college I had to miss some of the episodes as we had lectures till 9pm one evening a week - and friends learnt to cope with my moans. So, when the final episode came I couldn't wait - I bought a video so I could record it ... and then the date came as to a day I had arranged a post-college Christmas dinner. Later that day I had a phone call form a friend to say all the plans had been changed - just so I could see my episode - I did!

And even now it still affects me! I wept buckets.

It really rang a lot of bells ... about a group of people thrown together to fight a war - when peace came they are happy but sad. They have to say Goodbye to frineds, and know that they may never meet again. I had just gone through this at college - it really hit home.

The episode centres on Hawkeye (my icon today) and how he didn't want to face that. Strong emothions are hard to cope with - he, like us, didn't want to face facts.

This YouTube is a general set of clips, but containing the signature tune.



This is a set of clips from that final episode - "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen"
