That's right, Frankenmix 14! It's been a long, long time since I actually completed a Frankenmix, even though I've saved the last dozen challenges for completion in the near/far future. This month's tracklist requirements are:

1. Your favorite song this month.
2. Your favorite instrumental number. (Or, alternatively, your favorite soundtrack-related song.)
3. A song that showcases your favorite singer.
4. Your favorite band's best number.
5. A song that could have been a favorite, if not for the lyrics.
6. A song that could have been your favorite, if not for the tune.
7. Your favorite song when you were fifteen.

[ profile] goobalicious finished OotP last night and called me around midnight. Sis on Book 5, Mom of Films 3 & 4. )

She's still a Hufflepuff though. I think she's pretty chuffed to be sharing a house with Cedric and Tonks.

Oh! And now, she wants me to write her a drabble that's a twist on the Time-Travel fic cliches. You know, there's a lot of fic out there where Hermione travels back in time to when the Marauders were still in school and, of course, proceeds to fall in love with Sirius, Lupin, Snape or a combination of the three. Goob's asking for a Lupin time-travel drabble where he goes back in time to when McGonagall is just beginning to teach at Hogwarts and falls in love with her. Yes. That's right. The sis is shipping Minerva/Remus. Which is all kinds of awesome, because septuagenarians need lovin' too. However, I hold to the strict "exactly-100-words" definition of a drabble and her specification are just way too specific for any kind of drabbling. :p

This post is about nine months in the making, but it's not going to be nearly as impressive as it should be for taking that long. Anyway, last September or so it was announced that Peter Jackson had optioned the rights to Naomi Novik's Temeraire book series. To me, this was about as exciting a combination as peanut butter and chocolate, or Chris Cornell and Rage Against the Machine, or Catherine Keener and Dermot Mulroney. (Damn. I just realized that two of those three combos ended spectacularly. Someone hold me!) That is to say I find this bonecrushingly, breathtakingly, heartstoppingly awesome.

So, back in September, I was discussing this in comments with [ profile] rhienelleth, and mentioned that I was already casting it in my head. I just never got back around to posting a comment with my dream cast, because I lose at life.

Dream Cast for Peter Jackson's Temeraire film )
So, who would you like to see in these roles?

Next Up (someday): Casting HBO's A Song of Ice and Fire

Well, that was the best Golden Globes ceremony in recent memory. Quick run down of the highlights, shall we?

* Meryl Streep looked like crap on a stick. Seriously. I can handle the short dress trend if I must, but Meryl! NO. Not on you. That looked like something Carrie Bradshaw would wear to an evening funeral. Horrible. *shivers*

* I noticed on the Red Carpet that Jude Law told Joan he was there "with my friend Simon." Simon looked a heck of a lot like Sienna Miller, no? She's a man, baby! Yeah!

* Tim Robbins won. He didn't talk too long or say anything to lessen my enjoyment of the evening. Bonus points go to him because I just watched "The Hudsucker Proxy" the other night, and as obnoxious as I find Tim Robbin the "Activist," I adore Tim Robbins the Actor. ADORE. And I usually have a hard time separating my personal opinion of an actor from his/her professional ability. I'm talking at you, Gwyneth.

* The Talented and Fabulous Patricia Clarkson did not win. *sigh* That person I don't like very much did, looking better than she has in years. The Bridget Jones weight wears well on her, IMHO. Just wish her skirt hadn't called in sick...

* Mary-Louise's breasts. That was awesome. I just wish she had thanked that Rat Bastard for leaving her single and fabulous in a room full of handsome men. Bite me, Billy!

* Didn't love The Kief losing, but I couldn't begrudge LaPaglia. Anyway, "24" winning Best Drama more than made up for any lingering disappointment I felt. All those handsome mens up on stage together to accept. ROWR!THUD! And could Reiko have looked anymore brilliant? It was nice to see her shine.

* I changed my mind about Amber Tamblyn deserving to win. Did y'all see her lipstick? *shakes head* She can win next year when she's not wearing something that will haunt her for the rest of her life. But we'll get to Nicole Kidman later...

* ROTK won! Yay. That wasn't really a big shock to anyone, was it? I hope not. Lost in Translation won! YAY! Now that's awesome. And did everyone else notice what a stone fox Bill Murray is? Oh yeah, ROWR!

* Charlize. Congratulations, Gorgeous! She couldn't have looked better. Yay for her.

* Best snark of the night? Goes to MrTrix. I already related this over at Snarkgasm, but as Nicole was presenting the nominees for Best Movie Actor - Drama (Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise, Ben Kingsley, Jude Law and Sean Penn), he said, "Is the award Guess which man she haven't slept with? - HINT! It's not Ben Kingsley." That's some good snark there... But seriously, Nicole presenting an award to Russell, Jude or Tom would have made my night, even though I wouldn't particularly like to see any of them win anything. If only Ewan had done a drama. That could've been the best category EVER.

*Speaking of Nicole, I hear her next picture will be She-Ra Goes To Prom: )

* But of course, the really exciting event last night was "The Office" and Ricky Gervais being recognized. I cheered. Out loud. And there was also squealing and bouncing up and down on the couch. Fabulous! Perfick. Never has an award been so deserved. If you haven't seen "The Office" yet, you owe it to yourself to seek it out, especially if you've ever worked in an office environment. Check your Blockbuster, add it to your Amazon wishlist, spring for digital cable, whatever. You need to see that show.
