Mischief, Mayhem & Tomfoolery

Random musings...

Turns out I've been trapped in Hell since 2004. I just recently escaped through sheer force of will, or perhaps I was rescued by my Muses who were finally able to track me down.

I'm leaning towards the latter.

So here's the little blog I created out of the ashes of my past existence. It started out simply, as such things often do, but now it has pretty much taken on a life of its own.

Okay, so on September 10th I was introduced to this both incredibly silly and amazingly wonderful music video called...

The Fox

(And yes, I remember the exact date. I could probably even tell you the exact time...)

I am now completely in love with these two incredibly talented and ridiculously silly Norwegian men...

Bård and Vegard Ylvisåker

When you get a chance be sure to head over to the TVNorge YouTube channel and check out the Ylvis music videos and all the other wonderful videos from their show "I kveld med Ylvis."

Thanks to tumblr, Netflix, and all the YouTube videos from SDCC 2013, I couldn't help myself and watched all 8 seasons of Supernatural in less than a month...

...and loved every minute of it. ♥

Eye of the Tiger

Though it's entirely possible that I may have overdosed a bit...

And yes, I now officially have my first OTP... Meg and Castiel. Never could resist a heartbreaking love story.

And then there's the King...

...of my own personal Hell..

Mark Sheppard

Season 9 has begun and if the season premiere is any indication, it is going to be epic!

Back in December I began a holiday Doctor Who marathon (thank you again, Netflix!) beginning with the 9th Doctor, Christopher Eccleston.

I was totally hooked the instant Rose stepped into the Tardis.

All caught up now and waiting (im)patiently for the 50th Anniversary Special.

I dearly love River Song and have watched her episodes more than any of the others.

I am really going to miss Matt Smith's Doctor when he regenerates.

Tom Hiddleston is an incredibly talented actor and a total sweetheart. ♥

He can also be adorably silly at times to an epic degree.

MTV's Loki'dLoki'd Outtakes

Be sure to watch the BBC series The Hollow Crown. I thought it was glorious and Tom was amazing as Prince Hal/Henry V.

A gif of an interview popped up on my dash one day in which Tom was asked if anyone had ever told him that he had a kind voice. Sweet and so very true. ♥

Netflix finally has Wallander up for streaming! It's an excellent series and Kenneth Branagh is simply amazing! Of course there's never enough Magnus.

Is everyone as impatient as I am for the premier of Thor: The Dark World?

Be sure to watch the epic new trailer!

Benedict Cumberbatch is another incredibly talented actor whose rising star pretty much went supernova this year. ♥

Did you get a chance to listen to Neverwhere on BBC Radio 4 Extra? It's a brilliant radio play (original story by Neil Gaiman) and our dear Benedict plays the Angel Islington. (March 16th-23rd, 2013.)

The Angel Sings

I'm sure you've all seen Star Trek Into Darkness by now. 'Nuff said.

After watching just one episode of Sherlock I was well and truly hooked.

Thank you, tumblr, for introducing me to this marvelous and utterly addicting show!

season 3 teaser trailer

Have you gotten a chance to watch Third Star yet? It's an incredibly beautiful movie with a very moving story line. Warning: Be sure to have kleenex handy.

The latest season of Cabin Pressure was brilliant! Check it out over on BBC Radio 4.

If you haven't as yet seen it, Parade's End is a fabulous miniseries!

I finally got to watch Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (it was my Valentine's Day 'date' this year). If you haven't seen it, either buy it or put it at the top of your Netflix queue. Now. It's an excellent film with a stellar cast and yes, you will definitely need kleenex at one point in the movie. Guaranteed.

Deleted Scene

Stick around for a while, or just leave my blog up in the background. I keep adding new tracks to my playlist so feel free to skip around until you find something you like. I also take requests, so if you have a favorite song or fan video out on YouTube please let me know!

Please check out the archive and reblog at will. There are so many amazingly creative people here on tumblr that I find it rather difficult not to reblog everything that pops up on my dash, especially now that I've gone insanely multi-fandom...

In addition to Sherlock, Doctor Who and Supernatural, I also love Firefly, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Star Wars, Star Trek, Thor, The Avengers, Riddick, Studio Ghibli anime,

Harry Potter, Narnia, Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, Spartacus, Xena, Buffy, Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5

and many other wonderful movies and TV shows, so you will see a few of those blogged here as well.

Lilo and Stitch

I'm not sure why it took me so long to watch this lovely and endearing Disney movie, but I finally did and have to confess that it makes me cry every single time I watch the "I'm lost" scene...

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was simply amazing and I am now totally in love with Bilbo (no surprise there).

Middle Earth & Martin Freeman fangirl bliss. ♥

Song of the Lonely Mountain

And here's the trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in case you missed it.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, my name is Mary and I recently moved back home to Seattle, Washington.

HAD I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
~W.B. Yeats
