BBC’s Sherlock

Monday, March 12th, 2012

I just finished watching Series 1 of BBC’s Sherlock series, a modernization of Sherlock Holmes. Only 3 episodes per season, but 1.5 hrs. long each, it’s still not enough. More Sherlock! Itching to get my hands on the Series 2 DVDs. Aside from the brilliant crime solving and Holmes-Watson comradery, there is some beautiful wallpaper. I’d love to live in 221B Baker Street, though rooming with Sherlock…hmmm…”You make the tea! I made the tea last time! and move your magnifying glass!”.

The main sitting room wallpaper is from Zoffany called Navarre. The Finches also caught my eye in the front hallway. It’s a print by Sanderson.

Above:  ‘Dandelion Clocks’ also from Sanderson.

TGS Tote Bag

Friday, January 20th, 2012

I’m so happy 30 Rock is back on the air and I quite like Liz Lemon’s TGS tote bag. Just saying, NBC, it could make a few bucks. Better than the stuff you have in the shop now…I mean who uses mouse pads anymore?

Bob’s Burgers

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Give some love to Bob’s Burgers, a little known show that premiered this year. If you’re amused by off-kilter, low-brow humour, as I usually am, the Belcher family is for you! Bob and his wife Linda run a burger shop with their 3 kid: Tina, Gene and Louise. The voice talent is great, especially the amazing Kristen Schaal as bunny-earred Louise. I’ve gone back to watch the episodes again as I wait for season 2.

Here’s a link for episode 1: http://s7icky.com/tv-shows/bobs-burgers-season-1-episode-1/

For the Canucks: Bob info (tho Global stopped posting videos..boo!)

Give them a chance! ~ Lurgs

Moving out!

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Had to move on from my current space. Thanks to Wing-me for the taste of freedom and downtown living. I must say I quite enjoyed the view and the ever-changing Toronto weather.

And only 1 hour later on the same day…

NO buying, but I’m still coveting.

Friday, August 5th, 2011

So last month, my friend and I decided to do a 30-day purchasing diet inspired by others and tweaked to our needs. We basically failed by a shirt or 2. So this month, I begin my goal again and with determination. It’s a tempting world, what with online purchasing so easily within reach. I’m hoping to Pinterest all my covets as a way to appease my desires. Today, I want these shoes. What things do you have your eye on? ~yy

The IT Crowd

Friday, June 10th, 2011

I saw Bridesmaids a few weeks ago (quite entertaining) and was surprised by a familiar face…Oie! it’s Roy! Roy being Chris O’Dowd’s character from the IT Crowd, a British comedy series about the often overlooked IT department of Reynholm Industries. I’ve only seen the first season, so this prompted me to find the rest of the adventures of Roy, Moss and Jenn.

And now I’m all caught up (not that hard with only 6 episodes per season, and the promise of a 5th to come), I’ve noticed their squalid basement office has gotten a lot cooler with each new season. There’s great stuff in the writing of the show, but now I also feel myself trying to get a better look at the posters and toys hanging about in the background. It’s an absolute where’s Waldo of geekery! Why there’s a Dave Cooper figure on the shelf! And an Ugly Doll! and Roy has an Axe Cop poster!

It’d be great to be able to poke around the office and the sets, and now you sort of can! You can look around the IT basement with this 360 Panoramic. Lots of great art and things to appreciate for the geekily inclined. As G would say, “We’re not hoarders, we’re collectors!”.

Sudden realization…my favourite is Moss from the IT Crowd and I also favour Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords… I have a soft spot for socially-inept men with thick glasses and distinct hair choices. oh man!

Summer, here we come!

Picked up these beautiful dahlias yesterday! Finally, summer is coming. My first grown-up plants. I’ve never been lucky with plants, so please say a little prayer for these lovelies. ~ Lurgs

Photo owners found!

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

I posted earlier about a roll of film that had been found in Prospect Park in New York by Todd Bieber and his quest to find the owners. And now he’s found them and has also had the opportunity to travel and meet some other new friends along the way! Hurray for lovely people of the world! Cheers to circumstance, opportunities and chances taken! Read the full article here.

  

Batmo-mouse!

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Discovered this beast on J’s desk. The batmobile of mice!! It’s the Cyborg R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse. All these wheels and turny things controlling speed and scrolling…I dunno if it really helps or if my hand would cramp up.

Anyways, now we RACE!!! ah, animators and their toys.

A Room with A View

Here’s my new view! Hoping the change in scenery will bring some new inspiration. Good times to come! ~ Lurgs
