I haven't posted in over a month and the sad thing is that I still don't feel like I have anything to post about. But I'm going to give it a try nonetheless, because this is getting ridiculous.

My Year in Entertainment
I'm trying for the 100 / 100 / 100 trifecta this year. That is: 100 movies watched, a 100 television seasons completed, 100 books read. I'm totally counting rereads/rewatches or I'd never make it in a million years. So far I'm doing pretty good on the books and movies front (13 books read, 9 movies watched), but the TV seasons category is probably not going to start paying serious dividends until all the May season finales.

Last year I tried to get back into capping, and I must say, it's paying off this year. Over my holiday/Christmas I capped the first discs of three of my DVD sets:

And I also started my Farscape rewatch (now stalled) by capping the first six episodes of season 1.

I Shop, Therefore I Am
I've been spending TONS of money this month. Most of it came from Christmas/birthday money, so it's not too bad (my favorite purchase was a Global chef's knife. Cost me my parents a fortune, but soooo worth it. Damn, but a good knife will just make your day when you're cooking), except that last night at three am I went on a spending spree at various online clothes stores. My favorite purchase. )

I Watch TV, Therefore I Am
At least, that's how it used to be, but while I'm liking a lot of stuff, I'm obsessive about nothing right now. The closest I get is Fringe, but it's been so long since we've had a new episode that it's not at the forefront of my mind at the moment.

Recently, I have watched:

So that's the state of me. I'll try not to crawl into a hole for another month. If I could only find the inspiration to picspam...

Meme on a Saturday afternoon

Stolen from [info]calturner:

List all of the television shows you have on DVD, no matter how obscure or embarrassing. Even if you only own one season, list it. Let's see who has what!

21 Jump Street (seasons 1-3)
30 Rock (season 1)
4400, The (season 1)

The Rest under the cut )

Also, I just finished Being Human, and I started capping as I watched with the second episode, so here are those caps if anyone's interested.

I upgraded to Firefox 3.6 the other day, and I love the personas thing. Right now I'm using the Windows 7 one because I love the colors, but I'll probably switch it before too long to something else.

Shows no one cares about

For the past week or so, I've immersed myself in two shows:

På spåret, a Swedish game show/geography quiz that I recently discovered is available online. And that is the only way I will ever watch a Swedish show (though this is pretty much the only one I'll ever make an effort to watch), because even if someone reminds me 15 minutes before a show starts, I will inevitably forget about it. I think my brain has been rewired to not think of schedules when it comes to TV, so I just can't keep to it.

Hoarders. You know, I used to think I had hoarding tendencies (just take a look at my DVDs), but watching this show makes me realize that I so do NOT. )

My capping continues apace. I capped The Proposal the other day. And I finished Parks and Recreation season 1. Now onward to season 2! (Watching, not capping.)

I have to get up early tomorrow morning if I want to see HIMYM before I leave for work, so I'm off to bed. (HIMYM!!!)

Fandom can be awesome. And not.

So, this latest fandom debacle finally got me to read up more on OTW, and now I can't wait for this thing to get off the ground! )

I finally figured out how to cap on my new computer (I kinda had to figure it out, my old computer was dying by degrees), and it was as simple as using an older version of PowerDVD. So I've done just a tiiiiny bit of capping. More to come, though.

1x17 - The Skull in the Desert

Pushing Daisies
1x04 - Pigeon

In other news, I've been looking around the icon communities, trying to get inspired (which hasn't worked, FYI, my main inspiration right now remains BLUE), and I noticed this meme going around, and I'd love it if you'd participate:

Tell me your Top Ten of my icons.

(You can find the recent ones here. Old icons are in my tags. Feel free to link directly.)

I got my second BPAL order today )

Since I last posted, I've had a week off, so, naturally, I've been watching tons of TV.

Ashes to Ashes season 1 )

My Boys season 1 + aired episodes of season 2 )

The Big Bang Theory season 1 )

Etc. )

I also managed to cap the first two episodes of Pushing Daisies. Well, the first two and a HALF episodes, but I have to actually finish the third one before I can upload the caps.

1x01 - Pie-Lette
1x02 - Dummy

*loves on DVD caps*

This is gonna be a nightmare

I'm going to be redecorating my apartment this summer. )

So, aside from the two Ally McBeal episodes I capped and the half a season of Avatar that I watched (half a book that I watched? Sounds bizarre), that's pretty much how I spent my weekend. *g*

Of 'ships and OTPs

That 'shippy poll thing everyone's doing )

Oh man, I was really out of it last night when I posted the picspam (no wonder, it was 4.30 am). I forgot an entire panel! And I even removed the network logos from the caps and everything (from PLAID! Plaid is evil), but then I forgot! And now it just seems silly to go back and add it.

I've gotten my old computer up and running, strictly for capping, so I've been doing some of that:
