Yesterday, Yama called me a racist.
And I completely agreed.
Why? Well, we were talking about dubs and original versions.
And when it comes to those, it almost makes me happy to be called that.
That's also why I will certainly not be joining mum and her sister to watch "Borat" next week. Because it will be the dubbed version.
And since ti looks like there's no way to watch the original or subbed version, waiting half a year to get the DVD seems to be the only option *theatrical sigh*

Something else:
Does anyone have some experience with ripping full movies from DVDs?
What program(s) is/are good? How long does it take?, etc.
Background: My V DVD is not running evenly and might get destroved at some point, damaging the drive as well.
I noticed it when my laptop was vibrating awfully much while playing it. I even compared it to one of the House ones to make sure. Call it geeky thoroughness if you wish.
So I, in order to save my precious favourite film, I have to rip it.
There. The not quite self-proclaimed Queen Of Geeks is once in a lifetime asking for help.
Scary, huh?
However, if there's no answer, I shall research and find out about the stuff myself.
But I thought I might try the lazy way first ^_~

Temporary result of my "Who is Guy Fawkes" family survey
People asked: 3 (out of 4)
People who knew Guy Fawkes: 0 (out of 3)

Oh my. Guess we're Germans after all O_O


Well, I was wondering what Gordon Deitrich Stephen Fry is up to these days. So I grabbed the newest episode of QI.
And needless to say, me liked it. A lot.
Okay, I had NO IDEA who the candidates were, but I guess that would be no diifferent if someone from the UK would watch one of OUR shows.
Right now, I'm of course trying to get more. I even managed to sign up at Demonoid to get older torrents!

Speaking of downloads, Marykirspinning session.
He had read the text on the V for Vendetta DVD a bit earlier.

Dad: "When's the show starting?"
Me: "... of what?"
Dad: "That" *points to DVD*
Me: "About 6 PM?"
Dad: "Well, I won't be back home at that point"
Me: "Why?"
Dad: "Might've taken a look at it too"
Me: "Wha...?" *starts freaking out*
Dad: "Don't worry, it's OK" *leaves*
Me: "... fuck."

Dammit! He's interested in the movie! This is A RARE THING! I have an organizational problem right now. Crap crap crappity crap!!!
*flails and runs restelssly around the house*
*takes deep breath and sits back down to THINK*


BTW, V icon #3. Made by me while I was in a particularly pathetic mood. Sowwy for that ;)
I just found ot that El Jay actually supports embedded FLV videos (FLV = Flash Video, the file format used by YouTube and such). Yayness!
And I decided to try it.
This is a very beautiful V for Vendetta fan video set to a song we all know and love - "Nemo" by Nightwish.
Hope the code works. If it does, I'm afraid you'll have to expect more vids from me in the futue ;)
Fans of the movie - enjoy ^_^
Important: The video contains a lot of crucial scenes so don't watch it if you haven't seen V yet but intend to do so at some point. You have been warned!
(FYI: Length is about five minutes, the size of the file is 12 MB)

Oh wow *wipes eyes*

... and to think that it's quite possible for most of such videos to be gone soon since Google owns YouTube now and seems to be raiding the site for copyrighted material... makes me fucking angry. Argh!!

V is just amazing. I particularly like his introductory speech:
VoilĂ ! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.


In German, the "using as many V words as possible" thing doesn't work since we hardly have any. So they only made his way of expression totally elaborate. Which, of course, kills most of the appeal.
I also find it extremely funny that Wikiquote included a version of the speech that was translated into "simpler words". So this is a bit hard to understand even for native speakers?

But AW! Hugo Weaving has such a beautiful voice. It's amazing how much feeling he puts into his acting even though his face is hidden behind a mask the whole damn time. Crush? Who, me? XD

BTW, like my cooking icon? I love those scenes, both the V and the Gordon one. They're really cute, each in its own little way ^_^

Grabbed two V icons. One of V and Evey (the one you can see in this post - Awww <3) and one of V cooking *lol*
There were also a couple funny ones that said stuff like "My fandom likes to wear Guy Fawkes masks" or "My fandom likes to play with knives". Cute =)
