I’ve been under the weather these past two weeks, what with doubled workload and unpaid overtime hours. My manager’s father had died, so the two of us left in the unit had to shoulder extra work. It’s sad, and unavoidable, and I was logging 12 hours of work every day, not counting the work I had to take home. I think it’s taking its toll on me - I hated it so much I was all but ready to ragequit. Just fucking once, I want to go home at exactly six pm.
I also lived on fast-food and coffee most of the time, as I didn’t have the time or patience for anything else. Times like these I miss real food and dinners at home with the family. But, of course, it passes once I think about how much I value my independence, however much I suck at taking care of myself.FANDOM POST!Hannibal.
I’ve been meaning to talk about Hannibal but I keep putting it off. Seriously, it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen in a while. There’s something different about it, not just the, uh, cannibalistic habits of the titular character. The cinematography, the gore, the sublime dreamscapes and the (sometimes) cheesy dialogue all work together for a feast of the senses! You could almost taste the people Hannibal cooks, really. Also, I love just how creative they are with the murders! “Elevating murder to art,” they say. Hot damn.
Plus all the overt references to Stanley Kubrick and The Shining really get to me. Like this one
. And this!
I actually jumped around a bit at Episode 7 and ROOM 237 omfg.Endeavour.
If anybody’s looking for a detective series to watch, as Elementary just finished (WITH FLYING COLORS) and Sherlock won’t be back for a while, might I suggest Endeavour, a four-part British miniseries, and a prequel to the long-running Inspector Morse show?
Endeavour Morse is a young Detective Constable for the Oxford City police in the 1960s. I liked how they didn’t try to modernize Morse, as it would be very easy to do so, but instead, kept him in an Oxford where teenage girls have posters of the Beatles on their walls, and garages showcase Jaguar Mark IIs for their customers. Moreover, as it’s set in the university town of Oxford, and being an Oxford drop-out himself, Morse gets to solve classy murders involving poetry and opera. It’s a lovely show, quite honestly.
There’s only a pilot and a four episode series so it’s very easy to catch up! Of course, afterwards, the inevitable loss, but it’s worth it. Also, Morse is constantly making confused/slightly offended faces like these:
I'll stop now before I post every single cap I have of his adorbs face.
I'm also thinking of watching Star Trek into Darkness sometime this week, hmmm, if I could.
