Some random icons and mini-sets I've made recently or found lurking on my hard drive. Margaret Lockwood, quotes, some random old TV peoples, and Once Upon A Time.

lost_spook: (ww - josh/donna hug)
30 icons made for the [community profile] hc_bingo square "hugs". I went back through all my screen caps looking for any iconable & expressive hugs and this was the result. Given the odd things I screen cap, it's a little motley, but on the other hand it covers a whole range of hugs from 1959-2013, which is quite nice in itself, after all. (Even if I may have used a pic to icon before, these are all new for the challenge.)

But I was fishing these two pics out for Tumblr purposes & thought I'd share (again, in both cases, but it's been a while):

So there's not much going on, and I couldn't resist retrying the meme using last names. Some couples stayed together despite the odds: Evie Eliott & Eowyn, Frobisher & Gandalf, Maddy & Maid Marian, and Servalan & Seven. The results were mostly much scarier than last time, but it did throw up some things that were amusing - and one or two I want badly now:

More mayhem and scary pairings )

Meme found in the wild: Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing, etc. Treat us to some commentary once you're done.

I thought it'd be fun... I hadn't quite realised what a weird jumble of characters I have - some of them are there more for the action in the icon than the character. So, in most cases, let's say that instead of a commentary, a horrified silence might be more appropriate?

(Actually, it turned out better than I expected. For the first half of the alphabet, anyway.)

38 random pairings and an odd man out )

Okay, so I have been tiring myself out doing various things, one of which was this! I know most of you aren't interested in Carry On films, understandably, but anyway I didn't think I could manage this before I started (I collected the clips in a sort of spirit of mild hopefulness and lack of anything better to do), but I did!

A Girl Like You - fanvid for the women of the Carry On films:
Might even be a proper fanvid... )

I find I've used this title for an entry before. Oh, well. :lol:

Three random things:

1. I've posted ch2 of End Game. I thought it would be nice to demonstrate that there are bad things happening and a villain sooner rather than later. (Like Stardust, the natural places I want to end the chapters would make very long postings, so I've broken them up. Ch 1-3 are all really one thing, hence ch1 being a bit lacking in anything other than Nat annoying people.)

2. [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1 quoted Neverland where the Doctor introduces Charley to Romana. I seem to remember having a conversation where people were wary of Charley because of something like this, and I was saying, "Yes, but when they meet it's just all very DW-ish, and no need to worry..." but couldn't remember the line. Here it is: Eight: Now come on, you have to meet Romana. Romana, this is Charley, one of my best ever friends. Charley, this is Romana, one of my best friends ever.

3. How can I cheer people up? Well, I can't, but I'll have a go. Beneath the cut are links to the original UK Carry On trailers. (And I couldn't glimpse any Pertwee, but yes, there is Sergeant Hartnell)
Here lies retro comedy madness )

And that's goodnight from her... (Yes, I'd better get out of the retro British comedy mode.)

Actually, here's a fourth thing:

4. Is LJ refusing to remember tags for everyone or is it just singling me out?

I'm doing this the wrong way round. Last weekend, I didn't get much chance to watch more B7, but I did pick up this in a charity shop. I wasn't going to get this one, because of the A-Level media studies project I did. (Long story; let's just say the amount of times I ended up watching Shirley Eaton say "Relax, Mr York." put me off her and the film.

So what's all this about daffodils? )

RL has caught up with me with a vengeance, but I'll catch up with some reviews of things what I been watching lately.

I completely forgot about posting the Carry On reviews for the last 3 films I found. I'm sure you must have been devastated. (In fact I'm not sure I have since I got lots of new friends. Erm. Don't run away. Just don't read...)

That'll come in useful in case my legs ever split up and stop talking to one another )

BTW, since I last did this, Peter Rogers has died, so I think that means the Carry Ons finally are at an end. (Thankfully, really, but still.)
lost_spook: (Cabby)

Since I did find quite a few of the films a while back, here are the rest of my waffly reviews.  (And before people wonder why I've got the little sanity I have left to me, these were watched over the last 3 or so weeks, not just today or something!) 

New friends, well, you remember I said I was slightly mad...  Here be proof.

Screaming, Cleo, Cruising, Behind and Abroad... Waffle waffle waffle )

I did promise this a while back - just a few.  (Sorry, the quality isn't great on some of them.  My technical skills are developing slowly!)

Hattie & Co under the cut )
lost_spook: (smallbrain)
I had a nose round some charity shops today and (yay) managed to pick up Carry on Cruising and Carry on Don't Lose Your Head (yay again). Then I went and cheated. I went to HMV, because I really do want to see Carry on Screaming. And you could get 4 on one DVD very cheaply (Spying, Cleo, Screaming and Cowboy) and there was also Carry on Cabby with That's Carry On (the compilation film) attached. And given that the only other TV/films I'd waffle about this much (Doctor Who, Spooks, Dungeons and Dragons etc), I already own and I've got a week to myself...

Carry On Cabby! )

Since some kind people have been reading their way through my story without having a clue about Carry Ons or what these people look like, a nice bit of pic spam for those who've followed me this far:

Title: How the West Was Lost
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Characters: Third Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart
Rating: All Ages / PG (There is much typical Carry On-ness and some comic violence).
Other: Set between Inferno and Terror of the Autons.  Crossover with Carry On Cowboy.

: What the good citizens of Stodge City want is a US peace Marshal to run the Rumpo Kid out of town. What they get is a confused sanitation engineer, demure Miss Oakley with a rifle in her trunk, an elegant Time Lord who's the livin' spit of the dead Sheriff and a sceptical Brigadier who might just be the only man in the town who can shoot straight.  The Wild West was never like this...

: http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=28657

: I don't own Doctor Who; the BBC does.  And I wouldn't dream of laying claim to the Carry On franchise, which is property of Gerald Thomas & Peter Rogers (I presume)

(Edit: It's now complete.)

As I noted a few entries below, Carry On Cowboy has Jon Pertwee as the ill-fated Sheriff, Angela Douglas (aka Doris Lethbridge-Stewart) as Annie Oakley, and Peter Butterworth as the Doc (The Meddling Monk).  It's crying out for a comic crossover with many dodgy accents and much trying of the Brigadier's patience.

Taster )
lost_spook: (brigadier)

Okay, I had fun watching Carry on Cowboy, cos little things please me.  Angela Douglas, who often plays the seemingly sweet and innocent heroine in several Carry Ons also ended up being Doris and marrying the Brigadier in Doctor Who.  I only realised this recently and I was prepared to entertain myself with the idea that the Brig eventually marries Annie Oakley (which is perfect, of course), but it turns out she's also Jon Pertwee's daughter in this one.

I know.  Got to find a life.  But isn't that great?  It cries out for crossover madness somewhere...

I seem to have developed a sideline in waffling about odd (very odd!), old videos I've picked up in charity shops.  Lately (in addition to keeping my eyes peeled for Blake's 7), I've been hoping to find some of those old, black and white Carry on films.  Yes, I know.  This is not cool by any standards, but then I've never claimed to be...

I found one Saturday - Carry on Teacher
