Things which have made me happy lately:

» I ordered the White Noise EP An Electric Storm and a CD of BBC Radiophonic music by the likes of Delia Derbyshire, and both came the other day.

» [livejournal.com profile] bewarethespork has made a community for people to post and read meta about Doctor Who and its various spin-offs without -- as much as can be prevented by a team of conscientious moderators -- having to deal with the racism, sexism, etc. of the wider fandom, which is wonderful: [livejournal.com profile] metatardis

» Thinking about all the things this series of Doctor Who is (still): I keep realising and then forgetting that it is also Drop Dead Fred; I also keep realising and then forgetting that Amy Pond is indeed Beauty and the Beast's Belle:

          "I want much more than this provincial life.
          I want adventure in the great wide somewhere;
          I want it more then I can tell,
          and for once it might be grand
          to have someone understand
          I want so much more then they've got planned."


Magical candelabras in La Belle et la Bête» While I was thinking about that, I discovered that Beauty and the Beast is finally going to be released on [Blu-ray and] DVD (for the first time in eight years!) this winter. You can tell that the Disney vault system works, because I am too excited right now to care that the only reason I'm willing to pay £16 for a DVD is because I know it will only be available for three months or so before being taken out of print again until I am no doubt in my thirties.

» I watched Jean Cocteau's La Belle et la Bête the other day. I will never decide which I really love the most between this and the Disney version, except that I will no doubt always tell people that it is this version.

» Thinking that if it turns out that the only way I can resent my UCL IS password is by visiting the university in person, at least maybe I will be able to make a day of it and arrange to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] glammetalkitten and [livejournal.com profile] mskatej. (Hopefully?)

» Deciding that I am absolutely, almost definitely going back to university this autumn, regardless.

» I tidied my room today; it is less of a depressing hole now.

» All of my wonderful friends. ♥

FINALLY. I've been waiting and waiting for this to hit DVD. I, too, will be shelving out money for it, because I love it too much to not own it.

I know, right? I've been trying to get hold of it on DVD for at least five years, but it's insanely expensive second-hand. I probably check the upcoming Disney release schedule once every six months or so just for this one film; I don't think that my life will be complete until I finally own it.

You should do meta on Amy-as-Belle! If it's anything like your Neverending Story meta, it'll be brilliant. :D

You have no idea how much this made me smile when I read it. I got the most ridiculous grin in your face. I'm so glad you're feeling positive about things. ♥ ♥ ♥
