- Dentist appointment tomorrow. *ugh* Definitely not keen on that. :-/

- I still have no placement for an internship... This sucks big time, especially as the internship period is actually supposed to start on 3 September already, which only gives me 2 more weeks now to find something... *is deperate* Seems pretty unlikely, when so far I wasn't able to find anything in the past 8-9 weeks, right? *facepalm* I have one more interview on Monday (please keep your fingers crossed again!! pleeeaaase), but if that doesn't work out, frankly I don't know what to do... :-/

- On the weekend I finally managed to "update" my framed stagedoor photos. :D Had to take 6 older pictures out to fit 3 of the new London ones in and it was really hard to arrange them so they all would fit into the frame... ;-) It seriously took me an hour or so. o_o *lol* But I'm quite happy with the result now. :-)

(Sorry for picture quality here, especially in the bottom right area... Things and lights keep reflecting on the surface, so it's pretty hard to take a somewhat decent photo. ;-) *g*)

In the pictures (from left to right/ top to bottom, sort of *lol*): Michael Ball, Ben Mansfield, Philip Quast (yep, he's allowed to be in there twice <3), Reece Shearsmith, Simon Bowman, Norm Lewis, Killian Donnelly, Kasper Holmboe, Matt Rawle, Roger Allam, Veit Schäfermeier, Pia Douwes, Fredrik Wickerts, Thomas Borchert, Jörn Linnenbröker, Jerzy Jeszke, Aleks di Capri, Jens Janke, Felix Martin, Norbert Kohler and Olegg Vynnyk. Well, and myself, obviously, on some of them. ;D Some of the pictures are also autographed, but it doesn't show here too well...
 
This is what the frame looked like before btw, if you're interested. ;-) click

- Next week I'm gonna watch Sister Act again. *yay* Sadly the musical is leaving Hamburg on 26 August, so I had to take this as last oppurtunity... Already seen it once last year in July and enjoyed it so very much!! :D It's so much fun and many of the songs are really catchy. *g* Hope I'm as lucky with the cast as I was the last time. :-)

- Also, if everything goes according to plan (and my boss does actually remember that I want that day off... *rolleyes*) I'm going to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict, [livejournal.com profile] maggi137 and [livejournal.com profile] vesperdavid in Hamburg on Saturday the 25th. Really looking forward to that! :-)

This is a kind of musical theatre special. :D

Basically just some pics of the London theatres I've been to so far. Which I realised weren't really that many yet... Well, I'll try to work on that the next times I'm in London. ;-)

I finally got my DVD of the Les Misérables 25th Anniversary Concert today. \o/ *squee*

I haven't entirely finished watching it yet, but here are some thoughts so far:
Do you hear the people sing? )

Can't wait to get to the encores! Valjean Quartet (with Colm Wilkinson <3, John Owen-Jones <3<3, Simon Bowman <3<3 and Alfie Boe) FTW!! ♥♥♥ And also the original 1985 cast (Michael Ball! Roger Allam!). :-)

Well, still don't really have anything interesting to report about... So here are just a couple of boring things. ;-) *lol*

- Seems like mentioning to my boss that I'd quite like to have at least one saturday per month off, please, was effective. :D So now I don't have to work on 30 October. *yay* It's my first free saturday since... well, since my holidays in August, I guess. I'm looking forward to that. \o/

- Because I had to take down the picture frames in the corner where now the cat tree is, I made a kind of collage of some of my favourite stagedoor photos in the bigger frame which hangs on the other wall. It wasn't easy arranging the photos so that everything fitted well, let me tell you... Puzzle for adults. :D
Anyhow, this is the result. I really like it. <3
(click to enlarge)

Sorry that the quality of the pic isn't the best. It was quite hard to take a picture without something reflecting on it... ;-)

- Nice weather again today. Took a nearly 10 km walk *yikes*, which then ended in sitting in a coffeehouse and eating some yummy waffles with hot cherries and vanilla ice cream. :-)

And for the German people on my f-list (because the others won't know who I'm talking about *gg*):
- Jetzt sind es nur noch 2 1/2 Wochen bis ich Dieter Nuhr endlich mal wieder live sehe! \o/ Woohoo!! Ich freu mich drauf. :D Auch wenn's diesmal in einer grösseren Veranstaltungshalle sein wird, wo ich noch nicht so richtig weiss, wie's da wohl werden wird... Fand's am bisherigen Veranstaltungsort eigentlich immer recht schön. *seufz*

Don't mind me. This is a kind of spam. *gg*
I've actually been meaning for a while to share the few "international" autographs I have.
And I'm a bit bored again now. *g* So here we go. :D

Just finished listening to series 1 of BBC Radio 4 series "Cabin Pressure". And I'm absolutely in love with it!! ♥ It is bloody HILARIOUS!!! *rofl* Had me cracking up and giggling madly almost the whole time through. :D Makes me really glad I didn't listen to it in a public place. ;-) *gg*

I think my favourite is Roger Allam as Douglas, who is brilliant *lol*, very closely followed by Benedict Cumberbatch as Martin <3, of course! Other cast members are Stephanie Cole (Carolyn) and John Finnemore (Arthur). The whole cast is fantastic. :-)

Will continue with series 2 shortly. :D
 



I'm so happy there will be a Christmas Special and a 3rd series!! \o/ *yay*
It's a real shame they haven't made a TV series out of it (yet?)...

Finally watched the first series of "Kröd Mändoon And The Flaming Sword Of Fire" now. Well, I don't really know what to think of it. It's a rather silly little show. *gg* It wasn't strictly my kind of humour (it's a bit too cheesy at times), but I admit it had it's funny moments. And it was entertaining nevertheless.
Matt Lucas as the villain Dongalor was pretty hilarious. *lol* And I have to say that Sean Maguire, who plays Krod, is quite handsome. *yum* ;-)
I actually watched the whole thing because of James Murray and Roger Allam. Roger (General Arcadius) sadly wasn't it it too much, but his character was nice. *g* James (Ralph Longshaft - "It's spelled 'Ralph', pronounced 'Rafe'." ;-)) was in the last 4 episodes. By now I even don't mind his beard anymore (I'm not a fan of beards...), it was actually quite fitting. Interesting character as well.
I'm curious if they'll do a second series some day. But it doesn't really look like it...

Habe nun endlich die erste Staffel von "Kröd Mändoon And The Flaming Sword Of Fire" gesehen. Mhh, ich weiss nicht wirklich, was ich davon halten soll. Es ist eine ziemlich alberne kleine Serie. *gg* Es war nicht unbedingt meine Art von Humor (ist manchmal ein bisschen zu geschmacklos), aber ich muss zugeben, dass es einige lustige Momente gab. Und es war nichtsdestotrotz unterhaltsam.
Matt Lucas als Bösewicht Dongalor war sehr köstlich. *lol* Und ich muss sagen, dass Sean Maguire, der Krod spielt, durchaus attraktiv ist. *yum* ;-)
Eigentlich habe ich mir das Ganze wegen James Murray und Roger Allam angesehen. Roger (General Arcadius) war leider nicht sehr viel dabei, aber seine Rolle war nett. *g* James (Ralph Longshaft) war in den letzten 4 Folgen dabei. Mittlerweile stört mich auch sein Bart nicht mehr wirklich (ich bin kein Freund von Bärten...), eigentlich war der recht passend. Auch ne interessante Rolle.
Ich bin gespannt, ob es irgendwann eine zweite Staffel geben wird. Aber es sieht nicht wirklich danach aus...

Yesterday evening I watched "V For Vendetta". What a great movie! :-) I didn't really expect to enjoy it as much as I did. To be honest I actually expected some kind of a dumb action movie, so I was very pleasantly surprised with this.
The cast is superb, especially Hugo Weaving as "V" of course. Loved his voice in this! Natalie Portman did a pretty good job too, though I'm usually not overly fond of her. Also nice to see some other actors I like in supporting roles: Stephen Fry, Roger Allam, Ben Miles...  The story is very interesting and suspenseful. And a little alarming as well, with the totalitarian regime and everything.


Gestern abend habe ich mir "V wie Vendetta" angesehen. Was für ein klasse Film! :-) Hätte echt nicht erwartet, dass er mir so gut gefällt. Um ehrlich zu sein hatte ich eigentlich eine Art von dummen Actionfilm erwartet, daher war ich hiervon sehr positiv überrascht.
Die Cast ist grossartig, vor allem natürlich Hugo Weaving als "V". Ich liebe seine Stimme in diesem Film! Natalie Portman hat ihre Sache auch ziemlich gut gemacht, auch wenn ich sie normalerweise nicht übermässig gerne mag. War auch nett ein paar weitere Schauspieler, die ich mag, in Nebenrollen zu sehen: Stephen Fry, Roger Allam, Ben Miles...  Die Story ist sehr interessant und spannend. Und auch ein wenig beängstigend, mit dem totalitären Regierung etc
