erychan86: (Real Life: Books)
I'm very ashamed of myself... I haven't read much this month either. I have some good reasons and some less good ones. I've been traveling around quite a lot and I've been trying to spend as much time as I can with Eric and in the evening I'm just so tired that I can't read as much as I want... Next month should be easier since I'm completely alone and I'll need a distraction... The other reason (the bad one) is that my TV calendar is full, as I neglected my books I also neglected my shows so I am behind with almost everything and I'm trying to catch up as fast as I can, so that I can go back dividing my time equally between books and shows.

Also Eric now really likes Suits, so I am re-watching it with him and it's fun! He is totally into it and he wants to watch it together so I can't watch something else when he's in a TV mood... The funny thing is: Eric tends to watch an episode a day and no more than that... With Suits we end up watching 3 episodes per night! I'm glad he likes it so much! But this is a post about books so:

Here's what I've read this month:






A Place For Us
Originally published: Feb 2016

Genre: Fiction / Contemporary

★★★
I like books narrated from different points of view and I quite enjoyed all the character in the novel, but the book felt very long... I think the story could have been told in less pages.






The Time Keeper
Originally published: Oct 2013
Author: Mitch Albom
Genre: Fiction / Fantasy
(reading time: Oct 18- Oct 19)
★★★★★
This book was so good! I read it while flying from Miami to Paris. I could not put it down... I love Mitch Albom and the the way he writes. This book is a masterpiece and I think it should eventually became a Classic! It is truly something everyone should read and talk about!

I'm now reading A Man Called Ove and it seems pretty good!

This is going to be my last music video for 2 months... unless I decide I'm okay with working on my MacBook, but I 'd rather use my desktop Mac fot it because of the screen dimension and because it's faster!

This is a relatively short one! I worked on some new coloring and transitions for it, and I quite like the final result! I still believe my previous Harvey/Donna video was the best I've made so far (maybe because of all the voiceovers) but this is quite nice too! And the song is perfect for them!

I have so many songs for Harvey/Donna that I'm thinking I should make a fanmix... That would be fun! :D

I need to take a break from what I'm doing so I'll write a quick update!

➜ Outside is raining so I've been working on my Ten/Rose [Doctor Who] Music Video so I ended up watching you-know-which scenes from Doomsday and Journey's End and I've been crying like is 2006 (and then like it's 2008)! I just can't deal with it... 10 years later I still cry when Rose says "I love you" and the Doctor vanishes, leaving her on the beach (Bloody Bad Wolf Bay... I've been there twice... Very nice place if you don't think about how it shattered your heart not once but twice) alone... That would be the most tragic thing ever if not than then the scene goes back into the TARDIS and the Doctor is all teary eyes and he opens his mouth to say something, but then he gives up and a tear run down his cheek... WHAT.THE.$%#%$#%. Don't even get me started on the "Does it need saying" in Journey's End because I'm already crying on the floor, no need to kick me in the stomach! Anyway! I miss Russel T Davies and I'm sorry if there are Moffat's fans here but he can't even kiss Russel's shoes, let alone wear them... Don't get me wrong... I LOVED Matt, Karen, Arthur, Peter (<3) and Jenna, but they could have been - using the tenth Doctor's words - "SO.MUCH.MORE". Also... back in 2006, they were filming these episode with the WORST lents EVER! I'm straggling making a 1080p video!

➜ I also watched the reward bit in The End of Time Part 2 and yes... That was painful too!

➜ On an happier note my [Suits] Harvey/Donna - I don't love you, I always will Music Video is doing pretty good on youtube. 1560 views in 6 days! That's just great! I'm very happy because I'm very proud of it!

➜ Other happy news: Eric is coming back home tomorrow! He'll be here tomorrow evening and we have a sushi night planned! I can't wait! I hope the weather will be good! We're going to stay here in Florida for a week and then go visit his family up in York, PA. So I will have to put my Mac back in storage (that's why I'm working so much on music videos). His flight ROMA-MIA has already being delayed 2 hours, but it's normal because the airport in Rome is just the worst (NEVER fly to Rome, always to Milan!) but he's happy so he'll have more to get his connection since he's leaving from Genova and he had just one hour in Rome (never enough). Eric LOVES airports LOL!

➜ Talking about the weather (like I'm my grandma) this morning I realized I was out of milk so I had to go out to get some for my cappuccino. When I opened the door it was still quite dark and I didn't check the sky because it was 6:30 am, but when I came out from the store it was like someone turned on 10 showers with awesome water pressure! I had to run home because I didn't want the milk to go bad, I needed my morning cappuccino and I honestly feared to get stuck there forever and had to call for a water taxi to come pick me up!

Once Upon a Time last night was Good! I forgot all that happened at the end of season 5, so I was confused (I should have watched the an hour recap on ABC). I'm quite interested in seeing what will happen but it seems quite obvious who's Emma's nemesis... I mean who was the only one missing in that scene? We'll see! I hope they won't mess up the Rumple/Belle/BabyWithDaddyIssues story because it can be interesting too!

Back to the music vidoe now... Hope your week was off to a great start!

New video! I am so proud of this one! I think is the best I've made so far! A lot of stuff going on and... I'm just super excited about it!

It was ready yesterday but I wanted to wait to post it because I wanted it to be just perfect!

I want to dedicate this video to my friend Kay that today had a baby! *CONGRATS KAY!* She's the one who turned me on to the show and we kid about the her baby was waiting fr her to be caught up with it, before coming to this World... and he did! Good baby boy!

Hello F-List!
I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was very productive!

I settled in into the apartment and made a couple of trips to storage to gather what I needed to survive this month (Mac, Coffee Maker, Extra Pillow, Bike, Leftover stuff from my last staying,...) and - as per usual - the change of time zone didn't messed up my body *pats herself on the back* although, my mind was struggling with getting use to it... But anyway:

➜ Welcome new friends: [livejournal.com profile] xfirefly9x, [livejournal.com profile] batmarg, [livejournal.com profile] tigtogiba34, [livejournal.com profile] favoritexrecord, [livejournal.com profile] cherrytattoo77, [livejournal.com profile] sometimesartist, [livejournal.com profile] frelling_tralk, [livejournal.com profile] imagine_peace, [livejournal.com profile] xlovebecomesher and [livejournal.com profile] mimoiikit143 (please let me know if I'm forgetting someone) I'm so excited... I can't wait to get to know you all better! :)

➜ Since I added a lot of new friends I wanted to know if you feel like I should do an introduction post or you would rather me making a question meme where you can come and ask whatver you feel like (I love weird/intriguing/crazy questions... oh I love the so much!) or something similar... You tell me what you want me to do, and I'll do it. I was also thinking I want to do some sort of a weekly post about fandoms and ships, since I have so many... And a monthly post with my favourite things... I don't know... All I know I'm a control freak and I want to do something very organized xD

➜ My weekend was all about music videos, as you might know. I've been waiting two long months to be reunited with my Mac and I just felt like spending a lot of time with it... Especially considering outside it's so hot... Florida, WTF?! I posted my Vincent Van Gogh [Doctor Who] the other day and I'm so excited to see so many of you commented on it and liked it! Thank you very much. It means the World to me! Last night I finished my Donna/Harvey [Suits] Music Video and I think it's the best video I've made so far. Maybe because I love the song so much [Poison & Wine by The Civil Wars] or maybe because I've been obsessed with suits recently (I binge-watch the whole thing in 2 weeks) I don't know... Today I'll fix some minor errors, so that I can make it perfect and I'll post it very soon. Next one might be another Doctor Who one... A Ten/Rose because I just have the perfect song for them and I miss that ship very much!

➜ I should make a couple of pic spams but I'm kind of bored with the layout and I would like something different and I should make some icons one of these days!

➜ I'm currently reading The Post Birthday World by Lionel Shriver, but I'm not giving it enough time... It's a very good book (if you liked the movie Sliding Doors, you might consider reading it) but it goes very deep into the head of the protagonist and there are not a lot of things happening so far.

➜ Last week the TV season started for me with Blindspot and the episode was great! Very strong season premiere, let's hope the show won't have as many fillers as last year! I'm very interested in the story. But my TV season really starts this week: I can't wait for Lucifer tonight, I loved season one and the cliffhanger was so good... and I cannot wait! Tomorrow Agents of SHIELD and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be back in my weekly schedule, so I can spend my Tuesdays flipping tables for one and laughing with the other... and then Sunday: Once Upon a Time... Feels like this season has potential. We need a great bad guy and who's better than the Evil Queen? I mean this trailer makes me think this season could be awesome... There's going to be a lot of Lana and this makes me so happy! I'm adding to my calendar The Good Place as well because of Kristen Bell's face! I don't know if it's going to be any good but I need some comedies!

I know, I know... The joke is old but I could't find a better title! :)

Thank you guys about all the "safe travels" messages... I am here, safe and sound. It has been a pretty intense journey, and yesterday, it was one of the busiest days of my life.

Since basically I don't have a home, and I keep moving from a place to another every 6 months keeping all my stuff in a storage unit, I have this need to settle in right away. The night I got in Fort Lauderdale, I had to unpack and go to storage to get my iMac (I've missed you so much, baby) and my Nespresso Coffee Maker... So when I woke up yesterday morning I had my nice coffee (I stuffed my suitcase with Italian Nespresso Compatible capsules... better and cheaper) and I turned on my Mac that has been working non stop to vonvert from .mkv to .mp4 all the Suits episode...

It's taking so long because I'm converting 1080p files, so that than I can finally work on my Harvey/Donna Music Video. (I have to because Final Cut Pro doesn't read .mkv yet). I'm so excited about this video. I'm using Poison & Wine by the Civil Wars (Here listen to this AMAZING song) and the song is just so perfect for this couple... While iSkysoft is working on converting all the episodes, I'm also working on another music video about Vincent Van Gogh with the song Starry Starry Night (not the Don McLean version but the Josh Groban one, because I like the rhythm better) using clips from Vincent and the Doctor from Doctor Who. I've been thinking about this video for years now, and while I was listening to some old playlists on my flight, it all came back to me and so here I am! Very excited about this project too!

I also wanted to say hello to my new friends: [livejournal.com profile] adamas, [livejournal.com profile] flirting, [livejournal.com profile] hanorganaas, [livejournal.com profile] jediknightmuse, [livejournal.com profile] kaitydid33087, [livejournal.com profile] monkiainen, [livejournal.com profile] moongirl24, [livejournal.com profile] ragnarok_08 and [livejournal.com profile] topum and I decided to upload a new-ish profile (Click) but I have to still work on it, and write something interesting in there... I was thinking about making another *insert month here* question meme, since it seems the better way to get to know people better... Let me know if you think I should do it... I had so much fun last time I did it and the questions were EXCELLENT!

Oh and here another friending meme! :) I love this stuff and this one is a very good one, so go check it out!!!

I'm right here :)

That will be all from me! Have a great day!

I'm officially obsessed with Suits!

Wikipedia says: Binge-watching, is the practice of watching television for a long time span, usually of a single television show. In a survey conducted by Netflix in February 2014, 73% of people define binge-watching as "watching between 2-6 episodes of the same TV show in one sitting."

I must be part of the other 27% then, because I ended up watching a whole season of this show in a day (16 episodes). That's so good when you don't have anything to do! xD


It started less than 2 weeks ago, when a friend of mine asked me if I've ever heard of this show. I told her I did, but I never got around watching it, and she said she just started it, and it was quite good... so she asked me if I was interested in watching it while she was, so that we could comment it together. She knew I was going through a break between me and shows, and I was having trouble watching/liking anything, but - since she's pregnant, and you can't say no to a pregnant woman - I said yes, and I watched the Pilot and surprisingly I quite liked it. The day after I watched the second episode and I fell in love with it! I like the story, I like the characters, I like the fact they say Goddamn every two other words... Bust above all I like Donna and Harvey, as a ship and as single characters.


They're so gorgeous, it hurts. And I really hope they're the end game of the show because I love the way the writers are developing their relationship... I think it's quite original.

This morning at breakfast I finished the 6th season, so now I'm caught up with the show and I will have to wait like everyone else...

Does anyone else here watch the show or thinks about starting it? Because I highly recommend it... It's very good! So good I have made a new icon and so good I"m about to start working on a music video about Harvey and Donna!

Have a great weekend!
