Iron Man lego

Not sure what's worse...

  1. The fact that I've not seen, read, or in any other way experienced Game of Thrones.
  2. The fact that, despite the fact that I have, quite frankly, more than enough programmes to be watching at the moment (visit our house, you won't be able to move for DVDs...) my interest perked up when I saw posters in London advertising that GoT series 3 is available on Netflix
  3. The fact that I went home and looked for it on Netflix
  4. The fact that I couldn't find any GoT on Netflix. At all. Not just "not series 3" but not any series.

Although I think the last one is the worst thing. I mean, I didn't see any sort of "from such-and-such a date" on the posters, so I'd assume it meant it was already there...and even if series 3 wasn't, it would kind of make sense for the first two series to be there. But nope...nothing, zip, nada, zilch, etc. Which I'd call bad advertising.

I mean, as it is I suspect it wouldn't really be my cup of tea, as I'm more into sci-fi, or at least fantasy in a modern setting (i.e. Buffy), than fantasy (Tolkein being the only real exception to that). But even so.

Also? Am determined to actually use my Livejournal for the purpose for which I originally got it, i.e. to keep a personal (if public) diary. I've been betraying LJ in favour of Facebook far too much lately...
Firefly - Shiny

Ooh! Shiny!

I've just discovered two things I didn't know existed before:

Firstly, a documentary, Done the Impossible, a fan-made film about the phenomena that are Firefly and Serenity. It's on Netflix. Go have a watch, fellow Browncoats. It's great fun. I may get the DVD too.

Secondly, a word: Fillionaire. Given the context, I suspect you can make an educated guess as to its meaning...
