According to gender stereotypes, I am such a guy right now. “Look I found a cool video the internet, therefore you all must watch!” Apparently doing that’s a guy thing. And now I’m going to discuss cars. I said last week that watching the Top Gear presenters try to make a convertible people carrier was one of the funniest things I’d seen on TV. Well I found it on YouTube And the one where they each tried to make hyro-car and then raced them. I think I’m one of the many people over the world worried about the shows future since Richard Hammond’s accident so it’s been on my mind a lot lately.

Can I interest anyone in proofing a little (1,300 word) Harry Potter gen fic? It stars Harry and Ron and it for [ profile] omniocular’s AU challenge.

1. If you use a plot device such as ghosts, figments of the imagination, or a rogue metamorphmagus etc to externalise a characters internal conflict, can a writer still call the conflict internal?

2. Damn you Disney for deciding to release DMC without deleted scenes, especially which I know for a fact there are more Norrington scenes. They'll release them months later, everybody knows it and I’m not made of money.

3. Okay Universe, in just over a month you have taken Steve Irwin, Peter Brock, Lord Cooke, the Maori Queen and the King of Tonga. Okay. I can deal with that. Just hands of the Top Gear presenters. Thank you.

I cannot believe I have managed to live 21 years of life without having seen Brazil. That is until today and it’s an awesome movie. For those who may not have seen it, it’s 1984 with crazy heating pipe repairman, dream sequences and jokes about consumerism and plastic surgery. And it has Michael Palin, who I heart and since I didn’t notice that it stared Jonathan Pryce and I had a “OMFG! That’s Governor Swann!” moment fifteen minutes into it.

Michael Palin really needs to show up in a Potter movie. You can never have too many Pythons in a franchise. Oh, as a Death Eater! Death Eater Michael Palin would just rock my socks off.

And it’s Sunday night, which means for me that it’s Top Gear night. I don’t think I’ve ever expressed the love I have for Top Gear in this journal before. I have no idea why since I’m not a car person. In fact I’m rather anti-car, except for Austin Martin DB9s. I’d gladly sacrifice the environment away for my own DB9 or a red 60s Mustang *drools*. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago the presenters decided to make their own convertible people carrier and ended up setting a car wash on fire and it was one of the funniest things I’ve seen on TV.
