For jaebi_lit, "Things you see that never fail to make you happy, be they places, people, or things."

I feel like I've missed terribly obvious stuff that I should have remembered. I think that every time I re-discover something that makes me happy, I should probably make a note of it. Keep a list on my fridge, and hit pause in the middle of a movie that's cracking me up and go write the title down, for example, so that if at some point in the future I'm feeling needy I can refer to it. Anyway.

of the good:
  1. Someone walking a puppy on a leash
  2. spaggel's SGA pictures, many of which you can see here and here
  3. Rocking the Suburbs by Ben Folds
  4. "Wonder of Birds," a Due South vid by laurashapiro and morgandawn (Fraser/RayK), especially these moments: Ray hits a home run and the ball smacks the scoreboard in a shower of sparks; Fraser "dances"; and most of all, the whole sequence that starts with Ray and Fraser leaning on the rail of the Bounty and looking at each other and laughing, followed in slow motion by Fraser catching the gun, Fraser and Ray walking down the gangplank side by side, and then the ending. (You should be able to see this vid by going to The Vanity Project, clicking on "Even More Illegal Things" and following the instructions for access.)
  5. The Sentinel blooper reel, especially the little kiss that Richard Burgi gives Garrett Maggart on the temple
(P.S., monanotlisa made this icon. Teyla is joyful! :)

Heya! I just wanted to make sure you got my e-mail the other day. No worries if you're not interested or just haven't gotten around to answering emails or anything...I just know that every now and again people send me things that just wind up wherever black socks go. *g*

Oh, crap! Yes. I did. Heh, sorry. I haven't downloaded my mail in a few days--I've been reading it, but it's backlogged in my online client, which is paginated, so the older stuff hasn't been right in front of my face for me to remember to answer, etc etc. :P But let me get back to you. Now that you've reminded me. *g*

That is a beautiful icon!

Thanks for the rec -- I wondered where all these password requests were coming from. (:

You may want to edit, though, to the effect that WoB was made by me and morgandawn, not just me.

Gah! I will. Very sorry. *embarrassed* :(
laurashapiro on January 18th, 2006 10:46 pm (UTC)
No worries, hon. (:

Still...grrr me. I missed her name when the credits were running because I was clicking back and forth between WM and LJ.

I could watch that vid over and over again. I get so caught up in it, pulled along by the brilliant confluence of images and lyrics--just having reminded myself of the vid, I've watched it something like seven times today. So beautiful. :)

You make me extremely happy. (: Thank you! I love the idea of you watching it over and over.

I keep thinking the same thing about quotes I love. I always admire people who can keep track of great book, movie or music quotes, because I am lazy and can figure out an easy system for tracking them.

And yes, puppies on leashes are the best!!

Re: 4
That video never gets old. I watch it again and again and I found the MP3 so I could listen to it on the way to work.

Oh yes, definitely 4. I got it a couple of months ago and usually re-immerse myself in it every couple of weeks. Laura and Morgandawn did a stunning job with this vid - its my
fave *happy sigh*
