Oh wow! I just watched Suspicious River. I already knew that Callum was an incredible actor, but I was completely blown away by his performance in that movie. That was just ... wow!

More about the movie )

I also watched the first two episodes of My Life As a Dog this evening. Callum's character was pretty adorable (and incredibly cute).

Back when it first aired, I loved Due South. I loved it.

A couple of years ago, I bought the first season, and to be honest, it didn't live up to my memories. Last year, I got the other seasons, and discovered that most of my great memories were of Kowalski, which is why the first season didn't reach my expectations. I've been watching season 3 and 4 over and over again, and I love it just as much now as I did back in the day.

But anyway, I recently decided that I should re-watch the first season again. Although it still didn't reach the levels of love that I have for CKR's Ray, I liked it a lot more this time around. However, I just watched the final episodes of season 1. That was great television. Victoria's Secret (episodes 1x20 and 1x21) were amazing. Paul Gross completely blew me away with his amazing acting (and hotness), and Ray and Fraser both broke my heart a couple of times. So. Much. Love. :)

I just finished watching Durham County, and all I have to say is wow. Okay, so that's not really ALL that I have to say )

At the other end of the spectrum, I also watched the Bliss episode, "Six Days", staring Callum Keith Rennie. More about nekkid Callum )

(Also, I've changed my layout. I haven't finished playing around with it yet, but I think I like it so far.)

As part of my 101 things in 1001 days project, I'm reading 100 books. I've just finished the 10th, and have decided that it'd be fun to write a little something about each of them. (I got a little carried away with my summary for Hard Core Roadshow, and when I say "a little carried away", I mean "completely carried away and couldn't stop writing!").

I'm currently watching Hard Core Logo with the commentary. I could not possibly love Hugh anymore than I do right now. I love listening to him get so excited about certain parts in the movie. He's completely adorable. And I love his voice so much. I also adore that he seems unable to go for more than about 5 minutes without mentioning how great Callum is. *hearts them both*

Happy birthday [profile] sleepyhedgehog and [personal profile] birggitt! I hope you both have a great day! *hugs*

In other news, I've been watching Battlestar Gallatica. I fell far behind ages ago, but (yes, mostly just to watch CKR) I've decided to finally catch up. I'm really enjoying it. It's a lot darker than most of the TV that I watch, but it is a good show. I'm currently about halfway through season 3...

Callum Keith Rennie is a good influence. He's given me the inspiration to finally start making icons again! There are 28 in this post. They're mostly Hard Core Logo icons, and there are also a few from Last Night and Due South. Paul Gross and Hugh Dillon also make an appearance!

Last Night

kaaatie: (CKR: Last Night)
I watched Last Night last night, and I really enjoyed it. When you're obsessed enough to watch everything that your favourite actors have been in, you regularly come across some great movies. For example, if not for my "thing" for CKR, I'd never have experienced Wilby Wonderful, Hard Core Logo or Last Night. Does anyone recommend any other Callum movies?

More about Last Night )

In other news, I've hurt my foot, and I'm currently limping everywhere. And I have to go back to work tomorrow. :( These holidays have gone far far too quickly. On the plus side, I only have 15 work days till I have another week off!

+ A friend is coming over for take-away and dvds tonight.
+ Some of my icon-muse may have returned!

I watched Hard Core Logo last night, and I can't get it out of my head. I've been thinking over it constantly. It was depressing, but the characters and the unanswered questions are fascinating. Everyone's intentions are so ambiguous, and every question just brings up more questions rather than answers. They're all clearly dysfunctional, but I can't decide how much deception and manipulation was going on. I think I need to see it again before I can decide anything. I haven't watched a movie that made me think this much in ages.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Callum Keith Rennie, how are you so awesome?

Day 2 of the "things that make me happy" meme:

+ We had cake again today. White chocolate mud cake. It was awesome!
+ [profile] clight000 sent me 2 cds of music! Thanks so much hon!
+ Callum Keith Rennie is on my TV, wearing a hot leather jacket!!
+ Paul Gross is also on my TV, and he's wearing his pretty, pretty red mountie uniform!
+ My apricot tree has ripe apricots again. :)
+ I just had a nice dinner with my parents, brother and sister-in-law.
+ I received an email saying that they're sending me my signed copy of Gareth David-Lloyd's band's CD!
+ I've started filling up my new icon spots, and have some shiny new ones to play with!!
kaaatie: (Due South: Fraser and Ray)
I'm doing the 8 things that make me happy in 8 days meme. Here's day one:

+ I got petrol for only 89.7 cents a litre! Compared to the 1.70 a litre that it was a while ago, that's fricken awesome!!
+ We had cake for morning tea.
+ The stats that I'm doing at the moment are significant!! YAY!
+ I've been rewatching season 3 of Due South again. I absolutely love it. Oh Callum and Paul, how are you so awesome?
+ I'm re-reading Twilight again. It's my kind of crack!
+ [profile] fawkesielady_ed sent me 5 cds of music! (Thanks again hon!)
+ I've finally finished paying off my credit cards and can start saving for my next holiday!
+ I'm going to Sydney in only 38 days!

In other news, where has this year gone? I can't believe it's almost Christmas. I feel so unprepared. I haven't done much shopping yet, and I haven't even thought about Christmas cards. I swear that there must be some kind of crack in the space-time continuum that's making time go quicker for me.
kaaatie: (Due South: Diefenbaker)
I really love long weekends. Today is labour day, so we have a day off, and I've been spending this afternoon watching Due South. Man, I love that show.

Paul Gross is simply gorgeous and adorable, and Callum Keith Rennie is incredibly hot. And the two of them are just amazing together.

Need proof? I may have got a little carried away looking at photos, so this is quite a BIG picspam!
