Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
They call it music with rocks in.
Jarvis Cocker wins at life. And it's a pity that JKR has appeared to put the kibosh on the idea of a whole Weird Sisters album. Because that would be incredible, in a 'wow, this is the HP fandom on crack!' sort of way.

I just watched the Australia's Favourite Film poll on the ABC. The entire contingent of viewers (who are the Australians who watch the ABC and felt like voting) decided that the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy was their favourite film. Can't say that I'm entirely surprised by the result, but the rest of the top ten was kind of....well, meh. Some I felt were entirely justified (Star Wars, The Shawshank Redemption, Donnie Darko), but Amelie? And Gone with the Wind? Just....no. IMHO, of course.

If it's of any relevance to the other Australian Firefly fans on my list, Serenity came in at 38 in the top 100. :D

My copy of the m15m book arrived today. Oh, it's wonderful. And also on crack. AU$24.95, people. Go forth and order it, it's worth the wait.

Current Mood: energetic energetic
Current Music: GoF soundtrack- The Weird Sisters- Do the Hippogriff

I don't think I can adequately express how much I want a full Weird Sisters album. A beautiful yet terrifying melding of fandom and real life!

Not a Gone With The Wind fan? I quite like it, myself, although I'm pretty sure that it earns its place solely because if the average ABC viewer has seen only one film, it's that one. (Ah, the elderly.) And it is a very cinematic experience.

Incidentally, did you order the M15M book from Amazon or do shops have it in stock?

When I went to Borders to see if they had it after the Australian publishing date, the answer was no. And they didn't even know it existed! That was a sad day, the one when Borders did not have their finger on one of the new cult hits.

So, I ordered it from the QBD in the mall on the recommendation of someone else in the community....it took them a month to get it in, but that was because the shipment from overseas hadn't arrived at the publisher's yet.
