Back story....  
So how did I end up discovering the hysterical delights of Mythical Detective Loki? Here's how it went: I got an email form VUDU, which is an online movie rental place, sort of like Netflix, where Nin and I rent a lot of our movies. You can buy Thor: The Dark World from them TODAY!!!!! So, I'm tempted. It's not a hard copy, but TODAY!!!! And the tempting bit? Loki: The God of Mischief (VUDU exclusive) How can one resist? So I decide to do a websearch to see if it really is so exclusive, and one of the results I get back is, you guessed it, Mythical Detective Loki.

So, now the question: do I buy Thor TDW from VUDU all for Loki: The God of Mischief (VUDU exclusive) Stupid question, right? And I can watch now, I don't have to wait till the end of the month for the DVD to be released.

SQUEEE!  
I have two tickets to the University of Utah's Tanner Humanities Center showing of Coriolanus on Feb. 22!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is just five hours away :D It's a noon screening, so will have to go up Friday after work. Fingers crossed it's not snowing through the mountain passes. Maybe we should get chains just in case.

Don't Tell Me That!  
So, out of curiosity, I clicked over to the National Theatre Live website, after reading that they were doing an encore streaming of Coriolanus, certain that if there were any viewing here in the States, it would be like in New York. Oh, fooey, I was wrong. The closest showing to me is in Grass Valley, CA and this cracks me up. Grass Valley is the little town in the foothills of the Sierra where my great-great grandparents settled in the 1860s, and I've never visited, not discovering this fact till a few years ago. And here I find that it's the closest place to see Coriolanus. Close being relative: it's 600+ miles away, over Donner Pass, in the winter. A 10 hour drive. But hey, close! You know, if it weren't winter, I would be so tempted [sighs] I shouldn't have looked.

ETA: Hmmm.... whatever location thingie they're using has the mileage all messed up. It has Grass Valley being under 200 miles away. So ignoring where they think I am, and looking at the list, it loos like U of U in SLC may have a showing. Must investigate further!

Best Thing This Weekend  
So, last night, the fandom internetz exploded with the news that Tom Hiddleston appeared at the beginning of the Thor II panel at Comic Con as Loki. Lots of pics of it on Tumblr, and I was insanely jealous :D Today, I saw it on YouTube!! I'll admit, I squeeed like my junior high friends used to squee over Leif Garrett -- yes, I'm old, look him up -- and I still have a silly grin on my face. Tom said, apparently, that he's just Loki's vessel, and I was thinking, after watching this, that if the book American Gods wasn't fiction, we'd be in trouble! Anyway, I'm smitten all over again, even if I am too old for it.

How Much Did I Love It?  
Back from Vegas and pooped. More details on the trip at some point, but must squee. We ended up seeing Iron Man III three times, and...a few thoughts. )

So hard to choose  
We just finished watching Enchanted April which now makes me want to run off to the Italian seaside for a holiday. After, I was trying to decide between Iron Man or Thor - I hate having to choose between Tony and Loki :D Found Thor first, so that's what we're watching. Anyway, it came to me that my perfect movie, say IM IV, would be where Tony and Loki are forced to work together to save each others lives, an Avengerish Defiant Ones, if you will . Two hours where I don't have to choose. Make this movie!!

For The Hiddles Fans  
Two things.

First, there's two comms on LJ that are relevant to our interests. Their existence was passed on to me by [livejournal.com profile] pezgirl7 and I'm passing it down the line: [livejournal.com profile] onhiddlesd & [livejournal.com profile] dailyhiddleston

Second, rumour has it that Ript T's shirt of the day will be the one in my icon, Loki Charms. I remember seeing it as side art when they were selling the Thorios one a few months back, and am thrilled they're offering it up!

I actually voted in the silly thing [grins sheepishly]

Cumberbatch’s Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman defeated Merlin‘s Colin Morgan for bronze, 54 to 46 percent.

My 100 Things  
I know I'm not doing the meme, but if I was, it would include this:

tumblr_m51jdfWHil1qjlveso1_500

It's from the magazine below. )

I think the majority of the 100 things would be Hiddles related at this point. I may need an intervention [g]

I've been collecting Tom pics and am going to make the promised icon set. Just need to remember I have to make dinner tonight!
