shinyjenni: Wonder Woman deflects bullets with her bracelets (ace seven)

- This was emailed round at work and it's too fab not to share: gorgeous pictures of libraries. DO WANT, especially the Rijkmuseum Library in Amsterdam. I could totally learn Dutch and move there, right? Right?

- Someone posted this on [livejournal.com profile] spooky_doings; BBC Autumn preview trailer (UK only, I believe, sorry). Lots of goodness: Spooks itself (HARRY! Also a couple of casting spoilers, both of which I knew, one that is yaysness and one that I'm reserving judgement on ); Merlin, the Beeb's new Arthurian drama thing - it looks to be glossy and ridiculous and I plan to watch it all; Little Dorrit (FREEMA!), of course they had to pick one of the Dickenseseses that I haven't read yet, but oh well; Tess of the d'Urbervilles which is looking suitably melodramatic (I hope they have kept the bit where the fire leaps up suddenly and then it fades away and there is Alec standing on the other side, lol subtle, that are my favourite bit); Survivors (MOAR FREEMA), it's hard to tell from just that little bit but it looks cool; Apparitions, the new series by Joe Aherne, who created Ultraviolet (the telly series); plus lots of things wot I am rather less interested in.

- I thought I didn't have any Torchwood squee left, but I heard the trailer for the radio thingummy last night and my brain went YAY!!1!!1 so apparently I do, hurrah.

- Inspired by SFX's Sarah Connor Chronicles article I have boughteded the first season offa ebay so can finally see the last five episodes (the (late lamented) digibox got me to episode 4 before going, "nah, bored of this channel now, go and watch Dave instead"). Feel I have successfully defied THE MAN as I have not bought it new which would have meant tacitly accepting that it's a-ok to release stuff in the UK minus all the extras the US release has, oh yes, and for twice the price too. This happens a lot and it is very irritating, quite often it stops me buying things that I would otherwise have got. Bah. End rant.

- Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] darthcorrie!

I love libraries so much! I have been trying to find a picture of the inside of the Taylor at Oxford but the only one I can find doesn't do it justice. http://www.taylib.ox.ac.uk/image006.jpg I think Dutch is pretty similar to English.. You could do it! Jess xx

Hee, I thought you might say that! :) Ooo, that library is pretty! I was pleased to see Queen's college library in the original link, only one I'd actually been to... xxx

Very pretty libraries indeed.
On an unrelated subject, tomorrow I'll attempt to get myself a ticket to Potted Potter (http://tobaccofactorytheatre.com/shows/detail/potted_potter) (probably the Tuesday), want to come with?

Isn't it?? It's a fab library to look at but a pain to study in because you can't take pens and whatnot in...

Oh, that would be annoying. But understandable though, given how rare everything in there must be!

It is indeed understandable, but aggravating too!

Chetham's in Manchester - I went there when I was little with my family and we were shown old books locked away with big iron chains behind iron grid portcullises - it was magical!

Oh, awesome! It looks really spooky and cool from the photos. I'll have to get Kate to take me there when I finally get round to visiting her.

The Handelingenkamer Tweede Kamer Der Staten-Generaal Den Haag, the Hague, Netherlands looks rather fine too. I didn't realise that the Dutch went in for such superb spiral staircases to get at their many books. Perhaps it's because they don't have hills. Disappointed to find no photo of the Up Hatherley one though...

I am sure Up Hatherly was on the long list :)

That is a lovely one too. They make their own hills!
