Dear flist, I have been so boring of late, I know, so here are some random silly things I fell over on YouTube, for your delight. Or, very probably, your mystification:

Silly things )

In other news, Jago & Litefoot goes from strength to strength. (I am nearly through 1.3 and thoroughly enjoying all the Victorian gothic adventures with our two lovable heroes. I did sneak ahead and listen to 2.1 (yes, well), and that was MARVELLOUS. But I may be a tad biased here. Although what your two lovable Victorian investigators need is a really ruthless villain of the old-fashioned type you can drop a building on his head and he'll still come back, yes? So, yes. Marvellous.

The end of the Carry On Gallery icons I was trying to make quite a while back, when my computer started objecting, plus some more random quotage. (From Camel, Cowboy, Spying & Screaming. Includes Angela Douglas, Jim Dale, Barbara Windsor, Anita Harris, Harry H Corbett & Bernard Cribbins.)

I shall now be cheerful ... and what more cheerful than the Carry Ons (well, unless we dwell on the relatively early deaths involved, but let's not.)

Icons taken from the stills galleries for Matron, Girls, At Your Convenience, Loving and Abroad, with random trivia from my recent listening to the commentaries. (Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Bernard Breslaw, Peter Butterworth, Jacki Piper, Richard O'Callaghan, Valerie Leon, Joan Sims, Hattie Jacques, Charles Hawtrey, Patsy Rowlands, Carol Hawkins, Sally Geeson, Julian Holloway, Bill Pertwee, Geoffrey Hughes, Imogen Hassall, Robin Askwith, Madeleine Smith, Margaret Nolan, Yutte Stensgaard, Valerie Shute, Mike Grady, Terry Scott, James Beck & also Gerald Thomas, Peter Rogers and Talbot Rothwell.)

So, time for that well-known epic tale of the British Raj being caught with their underpants on. It could spell the end of the Empire (but that's only what Major Shorthouse thinks, and who asked him?), but there'll certainly be much tiffin, Belchers, Burpas, cunning disguises, stiff upper lips, Rank stupidity, British incompetence, and no political correctness whatsoever.

For DW fans, there's Roy Castle (film Ian) joining the regulars, Peter Butterworth in his Finest Hour, Angela Douglas as Princess Jelhi, Joan Sims, Julian Holloway (in his only Carry On role that's more than a cameo: "Oh F...udge!") and unexpected Wanda Ventham.

Did I say the Carry on Doctor post was insanity? It's nothing to this one. However, for DW fans, there is Jon Pertwee (never heard of him), Angela Douglas (aka the Brigadier's Doris, which is why a couple of these icons are labelled that way. I'm not confused with Carry on Screaming), Peter Butterworth (the Meddling Monk), also Joan Sims & Peter Gilmore.

A sort of epic post of insanity, really. I just thought that Carry On Doctor would be fun to practice icon-making with... two or so weeks later, and 188 icons down the line, here's a post. Um. Yes. It's not my favourite of the series by a long chalk, but definitely iconic in all senses of the word.

For the DW majority here: icons of Peter Butterworth (the Monk), Bernard Bresslaw (what an Ice Warrior looks like underneath), Joan Sims (Katryca), Julian Holloway (Survival) and Peter Gilmore (Frontios). Also Peter Jones (the voice of the Hitchhiker's Guide). But mainly the usual suspects.

I still have an issue with the basic quality of the images (causes: Me? Software? One or the other, since any image has the same problem, regardless.) However, I think I managed some prettiness.



If anyone does want any, go ahead. Any comments are much appreciated. As is obvious, I'm all new to icon-making.

A batch from Carry On Spying. I think I'm improving, but I'm still jealous of people who can do these things properly. Anyway, apologies for the serious lack of Charles Hawtrey - I took these screen caps with other things in mind. On the DW-related front, there are a few of Bernard Cribbins (aka Wilf).

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? )

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.

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:

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
