interrupting your previously scheduled photos...  

so I've finished my Buffy/Angel rewatch (it was so poetic, I started watching Buffy in my final days at my old place, then did the interwoven episodes thing all through the awkward transitional stages and then finally just as I moved in to my new place I ended up rounding off the last episodes of Angel!) and I've come to fall somewhat in love with Illyria. I remembered I liked her but she's just so much more than I remember... for example, just the way she moves in that first scene with Wesley - so abstract and innate! And her intensity, it just oozes off of her - in that sense she reminds me a lot of Cara from LotS (who, just by the way, continues to be my favourite person -living or fictional- of all time) and I'm discovering more and more that that kind of intensity is something that the world needs more of. It's not exactly the same thing but I suspect that Bear McCreary has a similar inclination because his music often evokes the same intensity for me. And while we're on that note (heh heh get it) he has a blog! Isn't that awesome!

Also now that this post has turned into something completely random that covers way more topics than I thought it ever would, here's something else I've been meaning to post: iWisoft Free Video Converter. Ever wanted to convert avis into something you can watch on your iPhone without having to pay? This appears to be one of the only programs that does such a thing! Download! Use! Enjoy!

(Do I have to watch both Buffy and Angel? What's the difference)

Cara is amazing, I miss LotS!

Bear McCreary asdfghjklø, I can't stop listening to bsg soundtrack!

Haha well they're different in the same way that doctor who and torchwood are different. At the core there are a lot of the same elements but they just feel a but different and have different characters and such

My recommendation is to watch all of buffy and then all of angel. Alternately you could watch the first three seasons of Buffy and then watch interlocking episodes for 4 seasons and then finish off with angel but I find that its a bit harder to focus on what matters that way

Ugh yes, I just discovered Dirty Hands and I can't stop listening to it!! I love it when you find new songs on a soundtrack you thought you'd totally scoured
