Nico On Finn

Rae and Finn

I am so glad Nico, who plays Finn on My Mad Fat Diary, said this in an interview:

“I don’t think Finn is too good looking for Rae at all, I want the audience to think that Finn understands Rae and that’s the type of girl he’s looking for and they both get on with each other in the same way and both love each other’s company, and they love music and all that kind of thing.”

I wanted to post this because it fills my heart with so much joy to read this and I want everyone to watch this show and let it all wash over them too. This show is a long time coming and how I wish I could have had this show around when I was a teenager.

 

Rae Earl Quotes

It was hard finding a bunch of these in one place online so I’m making a post of the great ones and will continue to add to it:

I’d shag him until there was nothing left. Just a pair of glasses and a damp patch.

I am a body dysmorphic without the dysmorphic. I am a bulimic without the sick. I am fat.

rae2

He smelt of boy sweat and CK One. I thought my ovaries were going to explode.

I think I might be about to commit a sex crime.

There is nothing wrong with having a bad day, nothing at all. There is nothing wrong with putting your jamies on and staying in. the world will wait, the world will not combust because you can’t force a smile.

I can’t eat when it feels like someone’s taken a piss on my soul.

I want him to treat me like that little goat from Jurassic park and just. Eat. Me. Whole.

Starred Up Trailer

I’m both excited and totally terrified to see this; it will definitely be intense.

Walnut Whip

On My Mad Fat Diary Rae took some weird chocolate looking thing out of a wrapper and flicked something off the top of it. Later her mother yelled at her for stealing all the whips so I had to look this up. It’s a Walnut Whip, which is whirl-shaped cone of milk chocolate with a whipped vanilla fondant filling, topped with a half-walnut. Wtf?! Europe has some of the strangest snack foods. I just can’t imagine what would posess someone to create something like this and market it.

Unbroken Featurette Starring Jack O’Connell

Wow, this looks phenomenal, I hope Jack gets nominated for an Academy Award for this. So impressed.

Special Effects: Doctor Who vs. Misfits

(This is not intended as a negative Doctor Who post, just bringing up a discussion point so I welcome Whovians to bring on their positive thoughts.)

One thing my husband and I was curious about watching Doctor Who was why with such a huge production that Doctor Who’s special effects were on the cheap side but Misfits, which is not nearly as big, has much more believable special effects. I googled this thinking someone had to have discussed this before but found nothing.

I’m not someone who cares much about special effects or scifi but I love a good plot and it bugs me when bad special effects gets in the way of a good plot. Doctor Who, from what I’ve seen so far, has some really good plots but the special effects sometimes distract me.

Now I’m going to assume that the reason is because there are so many Doctor Who episodes and so many special effects that they can’t all be top notch. Also I have to admit that some special effects from the Doctor were impressive like those masks on The Empty Child and the statues in Blink. I have the ability with some shows to suspend reality and just enjoy them but there are times on Doctor Who I wasn’t able to. Like when Rose was hanging from the rope of the blimp she never would have been able to hold on as long as she did. Then she was saved by this stream of light, and it was just not believable.

I think it has something to do with me and how my brain works that scifi/fantasy doesn’t always work with me. However I’m curious about your thoughts on this.
