So.Close.To The Weekend...  
LJ Idol stuff: my story for the week is here. This week's voting is set up so that only one person from a pair can move onto the next round, meaning either I or my partner will go to the Top Four, but not both of us. Have I said how much I hate this situation? Ugh.

To cheer us all up: 32 Greatest Unscripted Movie Scenes. Includes an iconic moment in Indiana Jones, and the best and most profound line in Bladerunner. Really surprising.

Also, in my continuing mission to get more people to watch the feed from bluepueblo_tmbr... Cthulhu House (seriously, even without the eye-windows I don't think I could ever see that differently), Pierrefonds Castle in snow (something in that picture strikes me as Hogwartian. Am I nuts?), and two pictures from France and Greece that do MUCH more for me than the red-door feng shui thing all over my neighborhood. I don't think it's just that I love blue so much, either.

Last, I have no real opinion about this picture from Trondheim, but thanks to a Monty Python record I bought in college, the word "Trondheim" always makes me think of one of the little background comedy threads: "Zen, ve throw ze old ladies into ze fjords..."

i follow blue pueblo on tumblr and their photos are always fabulous. i really like that one from greece - no one does blue doors like greece does blue doors.

i think the only unscripted movie moment i knew about was the one in raiders of the lost ark. all that improvisation impresses the hell out of me.

why is lj idol doing that to its writers?? (contestants?) that just seems mean.

I've had that same thought about the Greeks and blues. There have been some great ones from France, but the Greeks love the blue/white contrast (it's all over Mykonos). It's just gorgeous!

The "Bladerunner" thing shocked me. That is the most amazing line in the whole movie, and so poetic that I was sure it had to be in the original story! Wow.

LJ Idol has a ton of twists and turns, but I'd never heard of this one before. There was a previous season where groups of three who thought they were working together wound up being in direct competition, but I think that was earlier in the game (and long before I ever joined Idol). All of the contestants are pretty angry, but it IS a game with ever-changing rules.
