Still have a small torch for Tom Hiddleston lurking amidst my K and J-music fangirling. I tried so hard to get a good view of him IRL at the Apple Regent Street Store event where he was doing a talk on Thor The Dark World because I couldn't reserve a ticket on the Apple site. SMH. The demand was so high even Apple site died when I tried to book.

I also had terrible luck with the red carpet event for Thor The Dark World on 22nd October. I had an appointment with the Job Centre in the afternoon and once that was done I headed straight to Leicester Square. I arrived at around 3pm and sadly couldn't get a queuing number written on my hand to secure a space near the front barriers which provided top viewing of the red carpet. I was at the back of the queue and had a shit view of the Odeon Leicester Square entrance.

People had managed to get numbers written on their hands because they had arrived so much earlier than me, maybe as far as camping in the early morning. The red carpet spread itself outside Burger King, Pizza Hut, the Empire cinema and Empire Casino. I could barely get any real life view of the cast and had to rely on the huge screen set up. Thor The Dark World is the third red carpet event I've attended. The first two were Anna Karenina and Iron Man 3 but Anna Karenina was nowhere near as popular as Thor 2 and Iron Man 3 so getting pictures of the cast themselves was easier because there weren't as many people at the the red carpet. Sure you had big name stars but it wasn't on the same level of crazy demand as The Avengers.

some hiddles photos and much more )
The feels I get from listening to this. OMG. Imagine the Doctor headbanging to this haha.

Doctor Who Theme and I Am The Doctor

I recommend checking out his other covers. He takes a variety of requests and works hard on making them sound epic
Who can resist? I know I'd have trouble. With the wig he reminds me of Tuomas Holopainen from Nightwish ohohoho

But LFCC 2011 has been okay. I did mess up completely though when it came to meeting the one guest for the weekend. I'm so bloody sorry, person :'( I blame my bad stomachache and major exhaustion for the Friday blunder. I couldn't even remember all the words I said. I only recall requesting two personalised pics, saying thanks quickly and shaking Robert Knepper's hand twice. On Friday night I was absolutely knackered from a long day at work and very hungry. Nerves didn't help either. I didn't know it was his birthday on Fri as well. Boo. He was rather polite nonetheless, despite noticing how weird I was but I'm always weird. This was just... exceptional


Not sure if I'll stick around for Sunday as Lee Ingleby cancelled but I might go round the stalls one more time to see if anything catches my fancy.

I only bought one shounen-ai Manga from the Yaoikingdom stall. Had a brief chat with the guys working (yes guys!!) and we were talking about Yaoi. One of them was recommending a few titles that weren't plotless smut. The Hentai stall was just behind this stall and boobies were everywhere there. I was so tempted to buy some random Japanese sweets and I was quite disappointed there weren't many plushies around.

LFCC was much busier this time. More stalls and film sets as well as props available to check out. I rather liked the Japanese cultural talks. Learnt a lot about the Kimono and the tea ceremony. They need to put more Japanese-y things in the con. I even suggested Yoshiki as a potential guest because that would make my day.

Robert's stage talk was really good. Managed to answer a lot of interesting questions from the fans. Occasionally went into his T-Bag voice lol. He even understands why women swoon over Wentworth Miller. It's the eyes for sure!!

Oh it was also busy because of Karen Gillan. She was a treat for the Whovians. I didn't go to meet her or get a photoshoot (too behind on DW) but I did catch some of her stage talk and she was quite funny. Saw a lot of Amy Pond and Eleven cosplayers, some crossdressers who were obviously male and a lot of geeks who I couldn't tell were male or female. Also forgot to ask a Kakashi cosplayer for a photo because he looked in character.

Finally uploaded all my pics

Saturday and Sunday


TARDIS was spotted in Trafalgar Square. I also saw a Ten and Five cosplayer as well :) The guy cosplaying Ten looked exactly like David.

There was also a B-Boy demo in London.

Pretty much anything that's Anime I guess because it is unconventional to a typical British resident who sticks to his/her culture.

I get into shows that nobody ever really watches or even knows about o_O. We're talking Asian dramas mostly. However for British TV while everyone is off watching Big Brother or The X Factor I'm watching dance shows such as So You Think You Can Dance (which is not really being accepted here imo, though the US show is much more exciting) or Dancing With The Stars US. Strictly Come Dancing I'd continuously watch if the lineup is interesting enough.

also watch Doctor Who once in a while. Old school Whovians can be harsh towards the new Who D:

The Doctor and Rose Tyler

TARDIS because it's convenient and I'm lazy tbh. If I was to be serious however...well I'd do the old fashioned way and use my mind. Would I squint my eyes like Nakamura Hiro does? Yeah probably :P

The Doctor - imagine the adventures one would have as his typical companion. Hoho ^.^
Another is Damon Salvatore. So long as he has his ring on, we can hang out all day (remember ep 11 ;P). He'd most likely prefer bars and drink a lot of booze or suck blood from willing girls (of course he is a vampire!!) but if he's up for metal gigs with me then wahey all is good. He'd make a good bodyguard - or at least I hope he does.

If it was a girl then Mako-chan is at the top of my list. Hope she'd be a patient cooking teacher if we spent the day in the kitchen cooking various things.
