caramelsilver: (Pretty: Hat)
Autumn is rapidly becoming my least favourite season. I can never get through one without being sick, ALL THE TIME. I always have a sore throat or runny nose. If I only have one, then I'm fine, but when they hit me at once, plus a cough and chilliness, then I have to stay at home because I just can't function. That's how I been the last few days. Home with a nasty cold. I've been freezing!

The one thing that have been keeping my spirits up is the book I'm reading right now. The Painter of Shanghai by Jennifer Cody Epstein and TUMBLR.

I have been ogling pictures of THIS GUY ) His name is Ramin Karimloo, and besides being absolutely gorgeous, he has a lovely smooth voice. He played Enjolras in the Les Mis 25th anniversary concert, and he plays the Phantom in Love Never Dies. I can listen to him for forever. This makes me happy, and keeps my spirits up. Don't care how pathetic it is.

I've been wandering around Oslo today. I'm really falling in love with my capital city. It's taken a while, but now I really enjoy just walking around. But I tell you, nothing makes you feel worse than when someone comes up to you with a pamphlet and asks you: "Do you want to stop violence against women?" and I just shake my head and walk away, cause I don't have the time. Dammit! What are you going to say, "No, I don't want to stop violence against women, I have to catch my bus!"?

Nikita: Wow, I think I have a new favorite show. So much love! Why didn't anyone take my shirt-collar and forced me to watch this five weeks ago? It hits all of my kinks! Assassins. Guns. Pretty girls. Being awesome. Pretty men. Being awesome. In sexy suits. Being Shane West.


(I have had a fangirl crush on Shane West ever since he was a hot doctor in E.R!)

I'm trying to buy myself a ticket to go see Next to Normal again, but it's a bit more difficult than last time. Cause this time I've gotten myself a Youth card which lets me buy tickets that should cost 450 kr, for 85 kr! (Isn't that awesome?) So I have to book the ticket by email, and I'm not sure I did it the right way.

Btw: Did I say that I have a Tumblr? Well, I do: caramelsilver. I mostly use it to read Glee secrets, but it also lets me reblog pretty pictures, which is pretty awesome. I'm also on Twitter. So if that's your preferred method of communicating these days, add me.

ALSO let it be known, Creme Brulee ice cream is the best thing ever! &hearts
caramelsilver: (Inception: Arthur/Briefcase!)
Inception was so much fun the second time around. This time I recognized all the clues and I could spend some more time drooling over Arthur and his sexy suits focusing on details.

small meta blurb )


1. THE SUITS! I was drooling my whole way through. (Except the times I was jumping in my seat in glee.)

Picture proof! )

2. ARTHUR, HIS CLOTHES IN GENERAL AND HIS JUST AWESOME BADASS SELF! Rolled up sleeves, sweaters and ties, my kind of man!

Picture proof! )

3. There's been some fandom kerfuffle over what Eames' totem is, and that the fandom consensus that it's a poker-chip is wrong. Well, when I watched it yesterday, I noticed that in the scene where the team is in the warehouse and is trying to figure out how they're going to plant the idea, Eames is fiddling with a poker-chip. He's far away from the casinos in Mombasa, so I'd say, yeah, Eames' totem in a poker-chip. Deal with it!

4. It struck me why Arthur's hair is slicked back in the movie. Not only because it's bloody gorgeous, but because that way the tech guys didn't have to worry about his hair during the zero-gravity scenes.

To see a much better picspam of Arthur and Eames' clothes check out [ profile] quadratur's post here.

So Inception has done something to me that's never happened before. It's turned me into some kind of multi-shipper! Which is really weird, cause I've always been "one ship per fandom, thanks." But NO, not Inception. I've turned Ariadne into my fandom bicycle. (I can't believe I just typed that.)

I ship mostly Ariadne/Eames (Yes, I do now they barely talked in the movie, but we can assume that they DID talk, since they worked together, and I like the chemistry I'd imagine they have. Hey, you're talking to a Draco/Ginny shipper. I DO NOT NEED INTERACTION TO SHIP SOMETHING!), but I also really like Ariadne/Cobb, and Ariadne/Arthur isn't too bad. (I mean Arthur is awesome, so nothing with him in it can be bad.) I even like Arthur/Eames when the rating isn't too high! The only thing I can't see is Arthur/Cobb, and Cobb/Mal doesn't interest me much either. (I got enough of them in the movie, you know? I'm satisfied with what I know.)

So when I start up the Three Sentence Ficathon in the beginning of December, expect lots of Inception prompts!
caramelsilver: (Misc: nerd)
So I saw Inception on Tuesday and it was absolutely fantastic. I'm so in love and I'm watching it again as soon as I can. Since I have a sinus infection I'm just gonna spam you with macros, pictures and gifs to show my love, instead of writing long meta-y shit that will only make my head hurt.

FYI Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy are insanely hot. Just so you know.

Inception: Awesomest move ever y/y? )

Wanna guess what I'm shipping? Keep in mind that I'm not much of a slasher. I can see the potential and all, but it does nothing for me in fic. I hate that btw, but there's nothing I can do about that. Or else I would be all over Arthur/Eames, thank you.

caramelsilver: (Les Miserables: Enjorlas awesome)
My exam went nothing as I expected it too, but I came out mostly unscathed! I didn't need my manuscript at all, but I forgot to mention a lot, but it went pretty well. They said that I explained things very well, and my English was good. I got a 5. Second best grade. Which I'm very happy about!

Thank you everyone who answered my questions! It helped me a lot. You are all so very awesome. &hearts

I cut my hair today!! It's so so awesome and I'm so pleased.

Before picture )

It was so weird to see all that hair on the floor. That used to be attached to my head!

caramelsilver: (Anastasia: I'd kick her)
I really, really shouldn't be allowed to walk around alone in a bookshop with money in my pocket. I'm going to be one of those people who starves because they have no money... actually no. I love food too much. I'll be someone who doesn't have clothes because she's spent all her money on books. Yeah, that sounds about right.

Edgar's charger is broken. I don't know what's up with me and chargers, but I just can't seem to keep one unharmed. I went to the Apple store today and they'll either fix it or give me a new one. They'd never seen this kind of fault before (the tip with the magnet fell off. Bad glue job?) so they couldn't just give me a new one. It'll take a week or so. So, in about... four hours (that's when Edgar's battery runs out), I'll have to change to my school pc.

Lately I've gotten real interested in picspamming and screen-capping and such. And I was wondering... what kind of tools and programs do people usually use? So far I've only used Paint, but Edgar, being a Macbook, doesn't have Paint and the Apple version is just not good enough. Not that Paint is the best to begin with. It would be fun to be able to do more than just cut it and stuff. I am definitively going to get a screen-capping program, cause I want to cap the shit out of Max Manus. There's almost no good pictures of this movie on the net, so I guess I have to make them myself. Also, after I get some good caps, I'm going to see if I can't trick someone into making some icons for me. Or maybe I'll try making some myself...
caramelsilver: (Mock the Week: Nosey Bastard)
So this meme has been going around... You know the screen-capping one? And I was like "I totally wanna do that, but I don't know how." Then I said so in a comment to Betsy and three seconds after I clicked reply, I was like: "DUDE! I disgust myself! This is the internet! If there is something you don't know how to do then you google it and learn how, you dimwit!" So this is me showing you all that I have learned how to take a scree-cap!

1. Stop what you're doing. Print Screen.
2. Print screen your current desktop.
3. If you have Photoshop open, print screen.
4. If you have a music player open, print screen.
5. Pick a folder, open it, print screen.

I promised you all that I would show you my room when it was finished... and that's like six months ago or something. But! I'm doing it now! Cause it's all clean and shit because the cleaning lady just left.

Look at my beautiful room! )

I got a new pair of glasses today! I love them so much. They make me look fierce. The strength is also higher than the pair I bought last year. Apparently my eyesight have gotten worse. Now I have -2.0 on my left eye and -1.25 on my right. So, yeah without glasses I only see blurry figures. Here's a pic of my new awesome glasses:

The Nerds are gonna take over the world. )

At the moment this is my favorite movie. It was filmed and released in Norwegian theatres in 2008 and is one of Norway's most watched films.

Click her to read without the annoyance of my layout. I advice you to do that.

Max Manus on wikipediaMax Manus on IMDB

The true story about one of the most brilliant saboteurs during World War II and his battle to overcome his inner demons.

The Trailer with English subtitles )

Summary of the plot: After fighting the Soviets in Finland, Max Manus returns to Norway, currently occupied by the Nazis. He joins with the Norwegian resistance movement in their fight against the Germans but is arrested. He manages to escape to Scotland where he receives training before being sent back to Norway to carry out sabotage missions against the occupying forces.

Returning to Norway with his friend Gregers Gram, his first mission is an attack on German supply ships. He is spectacularly successful, and soon he becomes a special target for the Gestapo commander Siegfried Wolfgang Fehmer. Manus, however, avoids capture, and with Gram and Gunnar Sønsteby he forms the so-called "Oslo Group".

Stockholm becomes a meeting point for Norwegians in allied military service. Here Gram introduces Manus to Tikken, who works as a Norwegian contact for the British consulate. The two soon develop a special relationship.

As the war becomes more and more brutal, many of Manus' friends lose their lives in the struggle against the Germans, and he starts to blame himself for being the one who survives. In a meeting with Fehmer he realises that everyone is just a victim of the meaninglessness of war.

The Cast )

The filming in this movie is truly gorgeous. They have captured an Oslo that no longer exists, but I have no problem in believing in its authenticity. I especially adore the costumes the actors wear, in particularly Gregers Gram, who I think looks dapper and yummy throughout the entire film.

Lots and lots of pictures )

Why I Love It! )

So... Did any of this make you want to watch this movie? If the answer is yes, then please, please do. I have found a link where you can watch it online with English subtitles. I am begging you to watch it. Like I said yesterday: I WILL WRITE YOU FIC, AND SEND YOU CHOCOLATE! (No, I seem to have misplaced my shame today, why do you ask?) I just... I need someone to tell me that my slash-goggles are not malfunctioning and that someone else can see the massive chemistry between Max and Gregers. (All the scenes in Scotland, my god!), I need someone to just squee with me about the prettiness that is Nicolai Cleve Broch and the awesome clothes he wore. And if you don't want to watch the entire movie, at least watch the scenes between 18-26 minutes into the film. What do you see?

And that ends my massive fangirling for today. I am exhausted.

The Winter Olympics in Vancouver is finally over and it has been a great one for Norway. We ended up as the fourth most winning nation with 23 medals. 9 gold, 8 silver and 6 bronze. Now that's pretty impressive! To celebrate I have made a small picspam of, what I think is, Norway's three hottest male athletes of this Olympics.


Come and see why I have been enjoying the Olympics! )

PROMPT: (given by [ profile] be_themoon) a story about international diplomats and the fragile relationships they build.

I love the fact that Betsy said international because then I could slip in some Norwegians. Both the Norwegian characters are played by Norwegian actors.

The relationships between diplomats are fragile ones. Friendships are good, but the good of ones country always comes first. In Lingua Franca we follow four diplomats and their assistants as they try and make the world a better place.

Series: 5 episodes per season.
Movie-length episodes.
