I guess I can stop apologizing for not posting for weeks at a time. Life happens. Things slip my mind. It’s not that I haven’t been doing anything, it’s just…I’ve been doing a lot.
So, anyone following my Pinterest has probably noticed my new board for The Avengers. Anyone following my Instagram knows that I’ve been watching the Marvel movies lately. Most of them, for the first time.
I’ve now seen the first Avengers, all three Iron Man, both Captain America, and both Thor movies. I’m looking forward to the release of Age of Ultron on October 2nd, and in the meantime I’m watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now is not the right time to go into all the many pros and cons of those movies (and show). There are things I really enjoy, things that hurt my fangirl feels like crazy, and things I don’t like at all. The list is pretty long, so I’ll save it for another day.
So, I’ve been working on fan videos. I have such fun creating them, but uploading is such a hassle and I have quite a few. Some old, not-quite-finished Doctor Who videos are collecting dust, waiting to be completed and uploaded, as well as some tributes to my new fandom. I’m still trying to get to those, but I’m afraid I have more videos hiding away on my computer than I do on YouTube. I have four videos about Marvel characters that are awaiting a final round of changes. Hang in there, I will try to get them uploaded for everyone to see. :)
P.S. While I’m at it, I thought I would mention my doll blog, Likeness of Life. I know it hasn’t been updated for a while, but for those of you who read it, it’s not forgotten about. I’ve been busy with some other things, and a good bit of my free time is spent feeling kind of wiped out. I am planning to get back to work on it, but I just don’t know when. Just know that it’s not ended, it’s on hold. :)
Using Taylor Swift’s simple lyrics in B.o.B.’s song Both of Us, I put together a video as a tribute to the Tenth Doctor and his companions. All of them had such strength, each of a unique kind. And someday, they would be strong enough to lift each other. Click to watch. :)
P.S. Shortly after publishing my Doctor Who music video set to Christina Perri’s hit “Human”, I watched The Beast Below. Yes, I have finally met the Eleventh Doctor. Saying goodbye to the Tenth is a story for another day, but I’d like to point out something very key that the Doctor says to Amy in his second episode. After she makes a mistake that angers the Doctor greatly, he reminds her that she is only human.
Naturally, I couldn’t resist using this scene to reinvent my video. While I was at it, I found a few other things I felt could be changed in making the video better. I’m so much more satisfied with it now, and I hope to get it posted soon. I’ll be taking the original down, so you might want to watch it one last time before I post the new one. :)
“I knew you were trouble when you walked in.” The Doctor walks up to Martha Jones in the middle of a crowd and takes off his tie for no apparent reason, then has no memory of it when she meets him in the hospital. Right before the whole building is transported by aliens to the moon.
“So shame on me now – flew me to places I’d never been.” When that’s all over, Martha boards the TARDIS and is flown to all these magnificent places, back in time, into the future, to different planets.
“Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground.” It has been observed by many that you cannot have aliens without the Doctor coming to save the day. In the same way, you cannot have the Doctor come around without aliens seeking him out. So it cost Martha to love the Doctor.
The difference between the Doctor and the bad boy in Taylor’s song, “I Knew You Were Trouble,” is that the Doctor did care, and he also did the same for Martha – loved her, risked his life for her, watched out for her. So, discard the parts of the song that imply otherwise, and you have the perfect opportunity for a really great Doctor Who video.
So I that’s just what I decided to try to make. You can watch it by clicking here.
So! Time for more Taylor Swift. :)
And here’s a tribute to one of my favorite songs on RED. Something I don’t usually do, but you could use it as a desktop background if your screen is just the right size. ;)
Lazing around listening to Taylor Swift. :D
So…I’m basically just procrastinating on everything. Nah, not everything. But creative stuff is just sort of, well, stuck. At the moment. I’m currently looking for some kind of spark to get me going again.
Oh, and #NightLight? So frustrating. Keeping up with my blog and helping the dolls with theirs is about all I can do when I’m either busy and/or very tired. I’m going to quit lying to myself. The fact is, my #NightLight blog is just going to have to wait. When my life is a little less hectic, I hope I’ll have the willpower to pick it up again. Just not right now.
So, yeah, I’m going to be sort of doing a crazy mixture of nothing and everything and trying to let it all go. Here’s a picture to describe me right now:
