emothy: (story of a man)
Does anyone have a post or know of other people's posts about their "Top Ten Dramas"? (Or it might be top five/twenty/J-Dramas/K-Dramas... you get my point)

I was browsing idly, as I do, and saw someone make an idle listing. Since right now I'm watching Joseon X-Files [aka Special Investigation Record] which doesn't lend itself to the liveblogging so much I've been thinking about other ways to keep updating my drama-centric DW account, in case other things I watch end up this way, because I don't want the journal to just go dead at those times.

As one option, I went back to [livejournal.com profile] drama_hunt to check out the tags and see which of my favourite dramas I could picspam for, and I've done two of those so far:

Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi (The Legend) - Various Episodes: Sujini + alcohol = OTP!

My Prince - Episode 3: Piggyback Ride of Love!

But I thought a Top Ten Favourite Dramas post might also be fun, or one that rates everything you've watched; I find those kind of things really interesting when considering what to watch next. And of course we all like different things for different reasons. I did try to keep a rating system in a document once, up to five stars sort of thing, but I'm sure I deleted it because I am silly.

So I'd kind of like to compile a few and see what other people have done and how they've formatted them - I definitely like the way they do it on the Dramabeans website, giving a rating for quality as well as personal enjoyment (there are things I enjoyed 100% but know they are not a good example of quality XD), but since that is a collection of everything they've ever watched it's obviously done with the intent to be short but informative enough for people browsing. It's not much use to me since I've watched a lot less dramas, and couldn't call myself an authority on them so I'd need to explain myself a lot more!

So, do you have a listing? Or know someone who does? I am going to go on my own travels and search but if you have any to share, please do! Thank you, you drama crazy people <3

[P.s - this seems like a silly thing to note, but how else would anyone know? I've been posting under friendslock more often these days - paranoia or something! - but if there was anyone who happened to follow me who can't see those entires, and wanted on the friendslist, by all means let me know! ...Not that I am assuming, I'm just pointing it out before I forget again :D]

emothy: (book; reading)
-communities that should exist, if they already don't.

A comm for reading that basically goes like this: "I like x-book(s)/x-series/x-author(s)", what else might I like based on this information, and why?" (For example, similar themes explored, authors with similar writing styles, inclusion of characters you can identify with, if you've speficied certain traits.)

I mean, it's always nice to get book recs from the flist, and I'll never stop asking, but to have a big LJ comm with hundreds of people sharing their opinions would be cool :D

And there could be tags for "if i like Neil Gaiman" which would lead you to posts where people rec other books based on people who like Neil Gaiman! ...You see my point.

(Also, I am tired. That is my excuse for a. if this makes little sense, and b. WHY DIDN'T YOU JUST GO LOOK FOR A COMM LIKE THAT YOURSELF, LAZY? XD)

- Just so you know, I do not have the hots for Christian Bale. He's sort of mildly attractive. Too boring for me. I like 'em you know, girly and with painted nails and rainbow-coloured hair (I'm not kidding XD Maybe not all at once, though). I also do not have the hots for Howl. Na-uh. He's a cartoon. I just have the hots for Christian Bale's VOICE. When he said "that's my girl" in that scene I just about fell off the couch in glee.

- This is the sort of shit I randomly spam you with over IM when I've known you for years. And you're not even there:
I was just thinking... What if, there was a universe wherein you could separate from yourself? But only at a specific time. What if one day, you had to make a decision which would alter your life dependingon which way you chose, and your mind split in two over the decision, and so the stress cause your body to split into two people, each making the opposite decision from one another? Becoming different people from the start based on the life they forced themselves into. And would they ever cross paths again? Would the individual choices lead to the same path? I think it would be amazingly interesting to explore.

- I am very sad that G-Mail has been playing me up and freezing upand responding slowly, and so I've had to remove my beachy background and restore the default white nothingness. It's so bright it hurts my eyes.

- [livejournal.com profile] picspammy is evil. [livejournal.com profile] rainscene is evil. The more I see, the more I read, the mroe I read, the more DRAMAS I WANT TO WATCH. There isn't enough time in the world for all this!

- I am pretty sure these batteries, once fully charged will activate my camera! THEREFORE:
Comment with up to three things you'd like me to take pictures of! (I'm afraid the cats are a no-go seeing as they no longer live with me, but I can always improvise with old cat pictures!) I would also beware asking to see "the earring collection" as it must be about a bajillion pairs in the making now. Although you could ask for a random noun/adjective and see if I have them as earrings ;) (Spiders, cherries, blue, striped).

- Also, we can play that one about not knowing so-called obvious things about one another. If there's anything you'd like to ask that you realised you don't actually know about me, do so. I will answer most anything!
