"The last time I saw you, the real you — the future you, I mean — you turned up on my doorstep, with a new haircut and a suit. You took me to Darillium to see the singing towers. Oh, what a night that was! The towers sang and you cried. You wouldn't tell me why, but I suppose you knew it was time. My time. Time to come to the Library. You even gave me your screwdriver; that should've been a clue." ~ River Song ("Forest of the Dead")

Name six movies you can watch any time without ever getting sick of them
Well that was tough! These are not necessarily my favourite films of all time, or the ones I think were the best either, because some of those were so difficult/traumatic to watch I've only seen them once. Like The Deer Hunter and Midnight Express, for example.
This is the reference pic (this chap takes fantastic bird photos)
For those who've been having the problem I was having with email validations and error messages, this is the reply I got from them
Thank you for your inquiry. This problem with your email address being marked as unvalidated was caused by LiveJournal's email server being incorrectly listed as a spam site on a few anti-spam services that are used by email providers and ISPs to filter out spam -- this usually happens due to the sheer volume of email that LiveJournal sends out for its users (comment notifications, other subscriptions, etc). When our server is listed at such spam sites, messages are not delivered to the recipient and instead create a huge volume of error messages back to us, which then triggers the email address to be marked as unvalidated.
This issue should now be resolved at this time, as we have worked with these sites to get our server removed from their lists. Your email address for your account is validated at this time, and you should have full, normal access to your account.
It does look like it's been resolved for me at the moment. Hopefully!
Wow, it was grim. Overwhelmingly and unremittingly grim. And the violence was hard to watch even though mostly they weren't showing more than blood sprays. Seeing Banquo's little boy witnessing his father's murder was particularly horrible. The cinematography is, on the other hand, beautiful if also somewhat overwhelming. As my hubby pointed out, it felt like every single shot had been thought out to the nth degree, with Oscars in mind. There were no 'ordinary' scenes, so after a while, it was like trying to eat a whole, very rich chocolate cake all at once.
Having said that - it was definitely worth seeing. Though I expect some folk might need subtitles for the more thick Scottish accents!

So I was thinking of a back story for a couple of psycho killing lovers and this came up.
Does anyone know how these shenanigans work? Do the plebs with tickets have to arrive earlier and walk the red carpet? Are we allowed to take cameras and hang around like paparazzi? Can I wear my Keens?
