Day 02 → Your favourite movie

This is a hard one, because I'm very casual about movies and don't really think about them enough to develop favorites. V for Vendetta blew me away when I saw it in theaters, though, and it's one I find myself rewatching all the time. And hey, I love Natalie Portman and I love Hugo Weaving. I have read the comic (after seeing the movie) and I love them both, but as different entities. One of the things that drew me to Watchmen before I really knew what it was was the fact that it came from the same source as V for Vendetta.


In other news, I'm reading John Winthrop's "A Modell of Christian Charity" for school, and it includes this section about the Biblical figures Jonathan and David:

"Jonathan a valiant man endued with the spirit of love, so soon as he discovered the same spirit in David had presently his heart knit to him by this ligament of love; so that it is said he loved him as his own soul, he takes so great pleasure in him, that he strips himself to adorn his beloved. His father's kingdom was not so precious to him as his beloved David, David shall have it with all his heart. Himself desires no more but that he may be near to him to rejoice in his good. He chooseth to converse with him in the wilderness even to the hazard of his own life, rather than with the great Courtiers in his father's Palace. When he sees danger towards him, he spares neither rare pains nor peril to direct it. When injury was offered his beloved David, he would not bear it, though from his own father. And when they must part for a season only, they thought their hearts would have broke for sorrow, had not their affections found vent by abundance of tears."

So...he ships this, right? Way to sneak Bible slashfic into your sermons, Winthrop.
tortoisegirl: (Don't call my name)
I can't stop watching this video. I'm not sure why, since the song's nothing special and I only find, like, one of the guys in it attractive, but idk. I think it's the bright colors and the inexplicable lack of clothing. And the sense of humor about it all :D (At least I think it's supposed to be lulzy...they can't be serious in this, right?)

Probably NSFW by the way, for bare ass and explicit ice cream.

Annnnd, since I'm a terrible bandwagon jumper... )
