Hey, dives?
Some kind soul posted the third episode of Dirt on YouTube in ten minute blocks. Just finished watching it.



Wow, that is serious crack! The whole thing, that is. I thought it'd be quite Hotel Babylon-ish, with a lot of glamour and bits of tackiness, but really the whole thing is tacky and most of the characters I really don't have any sympathy or liking for. I like Courtney Cox a lot more here than I ever liked her in Friends though.

Ian's brilliant. That American accent is really good, as are the horrible jackets and the hat. I felt a bit sorry he didn't get more screentime, but the scenes between him and Cox's character were brilliant. Despite being the last pair of actors I'd ever predict to be in a film/show together, they had very good chemistry (in a 'we're close friends who go way back' way, not romantically). It'd be nice to see more of that.

I can't believe I called it on the twisted romantice subplot either! BEST SCREWED UP LOVE STORY EVER. I love him, cutting off his finger just to get a picture (I think we get about two blink-and-you-miss-it shots of his bare backside there too- I obviously notice these things ;p). The interaction between him and the dead pregnant girl I watched torn between amusement, sympathy and general feelings of WTF.

I won't download anymore episodes, but it wasn't too bad. If it turns up on one of the cable networks, I'll probably watch it. But only for Ian and his acting, really. The rest of it really kind of paled in comparison.

This show hits new heights of WTFery each week. I haven't seen episode 4 yet, but I'll probably go "I...wh...b...I don't even know anymore."

I must say, I'm a bit disappointed in the show as a whole (for reasons stated on my LJ way back when...basically it could've been way more morbid and creepy and cool and now it's just...not that good). They misled me with the Peter Gabriel-- the music varies between "Mm, pretty good" to "this sucks", and I am a firm believer in judging a TV show's goodness by its music. (Exception is The OC; I hate everything about it.)

I'm pretty much watching this for Teh Ian, as in I would have zero interest in it otherwise.

apparently Jennifer Aniston's in the season finale as an OMGZ LESBIAN!!!!! according to TV Guide.

Entirely unrelated to anything

This is probably the dictionary definition of a longshot, but I'll see how it goes:
You know that little booklet which was given out at the Honours info session in September last year, the one with the form on the back which asked you to title and describe your thesis and had all the important dates in it?
Well, HPRC/Arts has somehow managed to lose my application and I've somehow managed to lose the booklet. If you've got the ability to digitise the form on the back (or even the whole booklet, since they'll be the same regardless of whether you're doing Religion or History or Whatever) and send it my way, that would be very much the kindest thing in the world and I'd owe you something in the order of a car.

Re: Entirely unrelated to anything

I'd like to help you, but unfortunately I lost that very booklet myself (which resulted in a bit of a panic a few weeks ago when I had to submit the actual application form/study plan to the HPRC office and realized I had no clue about how it had to be done). ;p

When I went to St Lucia last week to see Roxane about submitting my application and organizing a supervisor, she gave me the honours proposal form from the booklet in A4 size to fill out and give to her, which I did that same day (and submitted the application and study plan to the office). The only advice I can offer is that you could try going to the honours coordinator in your discipline for one. I mean, if Roxane has them on hand, the other coordinators should too, right?

*breathes out again*

Thank heavens for that. I'll Email Andrew Bonnell forthwith. The poor man is probably going to be sick of me by this time next year.

*various sounds of relief can be heard offstage*
