I'll just miss The Devil's Whore!


Oh dammit! I'll miss watching Michael Fassbender on Channel 4's 'The Devil's Whore' when it premieres on November 19th by one day as I will depart London on the 18th! I guess I'll just have to hire Lucinda to record this for me, yeah, she'll do it cuz when I'm finished with her during my London trip, she'll be a full-fledged Fassy girl! Resistance is Futile!

I found this smashing group pic at a John Simm (he's in dude on the right) fan site, just by pure luck. It looks like a Rembrandt painting doesn't it? And there is Michael, smack dab in the middle.

I'm desperately trying to find something worthwhile to update FF as I'm feeling melancholy in regards to the US Election. I'm so happy it's all over, but, with a new president that I'm not too impressed with, and to add insult to injury, Californians find gay people not worthy of having equal rights to marry their loved ones. So there's a constitutional BAN on gay marriage. Wow, in one evening, we took a huge step forward, and one huge step back. *sigh*

I'm sorry that you'll just miss DW. Darn!

I guess you didn't see the video nor the podcast I posted on MFO, or that were in alerts. Hmmm?

I'm trying to talk myself into getting into the excitement of the new Pres. I understand the excitement, I just don't feel it.

I supported prop 8, so I'm glad we passed it. I don't see it as a step back. But it's ok to disagree, as we've seen throughout the election.

As much as I would like, I don't visit MFO daily, and sometimes I miss things. So instead of not seeing something that everyone else sees at MFO, if I miss it, eventually I'll see it, like today.

I've met a lot of people who don't get the excitement and I totally understand as I'm on the same page.

Re: Prop 8, I'm not glad it passed as I am gay friendly and accepting and I empathize with them on this loss.

I know you're really busy, especially getting ready to leave.

I see that the blog gets RSS feeds. How do you decide which ones to comment on?

The things that I find come from the same RSS feeds. You don't have to go to MFO to find new news. There are some exclusive items that RJ gets, but the majority of news, comes to this site too.

Yes, I'm very busy with two and a half jobs, off line life and activities, and other events and hobbies. I try to keep up with Michael stuff since FF has been born, and since FF is read by people who don't go to MFO, I think it's good to cover the basics here at FF for new fans.

Regarding RSS feeds, to be honest, I don't know how those damn things work. I manually go to google and search for new news updates on Michael. I select stuff to write about that appeals to me and allows me to add my two cents on. It's no use adding stuff at MFO because by time I get there to contribute something, someone else posted it within minutes... too many chefs in the kitchen. :)

And because I'm so busy, I'm glad Michael is not a 'Brad Pitt'... yet, as I would be stuck at the computer updating FF constantly.

This is a fun exercise for me and if I can post new Michael info w/in seconds, great, if it's info that's a week old, that's ok too because it'll be interesting to somebody who happens upon FF. :)

:P you do realise you are going to have to talk me through how to use my video recorded - looks cool though - i'll try and see if i can talk Laura into recording it, shes a bit more skilled in that are than I LOL

Simone said...

We'll discuss this during my visit. If it can be recorded by someone, that's fantastic, if not, I will patiently wait til it's on DVD. :-)

Tina said...

I do plan on downloading the Devil's Whore and I am prepared to burn numerous DVDs! lol

Simone said...

Well you will be my backup person. LOL! Thanks Tina!

I'll keep my eye out for your express mail before I take off for London.
