Thursday and new SPN! \o/  
Please let my sanity hold until 9pm. US-PACIFIC time, which means I'm one of the latest on the planet to see the show every week. *cries*

I'm still at work, where my cubicle is on the other side of the hardware bring-up area. Most times, it's reasonably quiet. But right now? NEW HARDWARE. People are yacking away over there, and will be for the next 3-4 weeks, probably.

Since my iPod needed charging, I've been consoling myself with CDs on the laptop and headphones. Why do I not have the Prokofiev Piano Concerto #3 at my desk? Must bring tomorrow. :( Instead, I listened to BartokConcerto for Orchestra, and Music For Strings, Percussion, and Celeste. I wish the Dance Suite were also on this album (I've played in the orchestra for that one). And Janacek! Whoo! Sinfonietta (pretty kick-ass performance), Taras Bulba, and the Lachian Dances. The Janacek disk has various orchestras and conductors, and the performances are really good. I've heard more failed performances of Sinfonietta than you can shake a stick at, where it all falls down in the opening fanfare movement: too muddy, too slow, lack of bite in the trumpets, you name it.

And I've been re-reading montmorency's Princes Of Troy (Hector/Paris Slash, oh the atmosphere and the sexy and the angst), and Deus Lo Vult. The latter is set in the 'Kingdom of Heaven' universe, where an errant Templar night (envision Eric Bana) mysteriously arrives in Balian's (Orlando Bloom's) desert estate and forbidden attraction begins. *Happy sigh* My love of montmorency's writing is what first drew me to LJ 3 1/2 years ago, and *koff* across the brothercest barrior. See where that lead? Both series are highly recommended. ♥

Mmmm. Tonight's SN should spark some REALLY interesting Dean/Sam dream!slash... The fact that I was thinking about the slash potential of the plot devices (and later, the plot itself) makes me wonder just how ruined I am from all of this fanfiction and slash ^_^ Or maybe just improved?

I think I'm going to finally set pen to paper (digitally, of course) and try to write on that bunny that I set free the other day. It'll probably never be presentable, but that's half the fun of writing.

Hope you enjoyed today's SN!

Your possibilities have been expanded!

My husband is blissfully unaware of the whole Wincest thing, so his first question at the commercial break after the Dean vs. Dean dream was, "Wonder how all those people who think John was a great father are going to reconcile Dean calling him an obsessive bastard?" :0

His other comments were that dream Dean looked very different from real Dean (because Jensen can act, I said), and he wanted to know if dear god, do they FIND motels that look like that to film in or does someone create them? Definitely the second one-- last week's orange extravaganza was the perfect case in point. And here, where the scary wallpaper actually clashed with the motel art. I thought the picture of the peacock in the hallway-- after the assault of the peacock blue and green colors in Bobby's room-- was the perfect nod to the viewers. ;)

montmorency has also written an SPN ficlet! Have you read that?

Gosh, I'm late! I even went over to peek at her fic, but forgot to comment back to you!

Yes, I read it, and it cracked me up. Because it's so totally true. Poor Dean, having to face the current dismay equivalents of his baby. :)

You pimped me!!! Thank you, you are far too nice. And I even got you into LJ?? 0.0? I am so flattered. Not to mention which, I did myself a big favor because you have written splendid stories that I have been privileged to read. <3

P.S. I love the Concerto for Orchestra. I'll have to try out Janacek - I know many who have rec'd his work.

Well, I had to. That kind of writing is so worth discovering, especially for people who haven't found those fandoms before. And the stories are so rich in detail and emotion and sensuality. :)

Hee! It's all true-- I followed a link from ff.net over to LJ from one of your stories, and the rest as they say is history! I fell in love with your writing style, and it inspired me to try some writing of my own. ♥

Email me if you do-- this double-album CD I have is really good (various orchestras and conductors), but good lord, the number of "dud" performances I've heard of those same pieces is legion. Tempo, attack and passion are everything in music, and when they're done badly the piece just falls flat. :0
