I was going to post some old ramble , but I just can't get past this fire business going on in Camden Market. Even if it's only the crap bit, it's still numbing watching a big part of my younger years go up in flames like that, because even if I have moved on now, the place will never ever be the same again.

I think they'll be a lot of people feeling that way tonight.

I don't know Camden at all, but it's still shocking to me.

It's so iconic anyway.

But it's a place where I used to go nearly every Sunday and club and drink, and although all those places that really mean something to me will be still there, it's how the stuff that's gone will get replaced which will be what will kill my memories.

I'm sorry. That's an awful shame. I haven't seen the news today so I have no idea how bad the damage was when it was over.

The news wasn't particularly enlightening, although I heard the damage was extensive.

I can't seem to get past 'But it's Camden'...

Yes! Okay, I don't really go down there anymore because I'm a different person now and I can't cope with all the tourists anymore, but it's Camden!!!

Camden Market is on fire? Bzuh? *has not watched the news at all today*

I am totally feeling the same thing. I still have a lovely pair of purple cords I bought from a scary little shop there.

There's lots of scary shops. Including the one that wouldn't me and a friend leave unless we looked at their T-shirts. I thought we were going to be shipped off into the white slave trade!

Hehe! I had a very similar experience!

Of course, it's me who actually goes along with them...

My Sister-In-Law lived there during the 1980's and 1990's. The end of an era, *is sad*

I think the Camden of that time has gone anyway. I can't decide if I changed or the place changed.

If the Electric Ballroom had been damaged I would have been very, very upset. Even though I haven't been there for years.

We've just come in from an evening with friends. F is with us and is really upset, even if it isn't the best bit of the market. She lives between Camden and Regent's Park currently and knows the markets intimately. It certainly looks horribly spectacular in all the pictures.

It's so lucky it isn't the Stables.

That's pretty much what F said. The Canal Market is the less interesting bit you come to first, isn't it? I just hope it doesn't spread.

The fear has to be that the council will use this as an excuse to force through massive commercial redevelopment and kill the atmosphere.

I think it's the bit you have to go through a tunnel to. Most of the tat ships are there, but there's a lot of old collectibles which are probably a bit rarer now.

>>The fear has to be that the council will use this as an excuse to force through massive commercial redevelopment and kill the atmosphere.

That's exactly my fear. They been trying for a long time.

I'm sorry to hear about this. Camden Market in flames really does feel shocking. I suppose it would seem the same to you as the Pike Place Market burning would feel to me. I'm sorry, Bogwitch. <333

It could have been much, much worse, I suppose.

I've finished all of Roswell now. I get the Kyle love, even if I don't quite feel it. Isabel got less interesting as time went on, I'm afraid. I was in the Michael camp to the end.

I'm glad it got a proper ending.

Michael was probably my favorite during the show. Although, I got annoyed with him as the series went on. I don't think there was any character that I was continually happy with. Except Kyle! I can't explain my weird love for him. Same for Isabel, and I agree she got more boring with time. I especially hated the marriage storyline. BECAUSE EVERYONE CAN SEE SHE BELONGS WITH KYLE, OMG! I want a fic where they get together after the series ended. 'Cause they totally did!

One time I'd had a glass of wine too many at a cocktail party and started talking to Brendan Fehr. He did this movie where he played a hustler and had gay sex in it and I asked him about it. HAHAHA! What a freak (me)! Anyway, he spent about 10 minutes explaining (defending) how it was supposed to be as epic as Brokeback or something. He was nice. He also told me a lot about the set and how most the cast were lamostars except for Jason and Katie. He said that they sprung the 'dupes' episode on them rather quickly and he had no idea what to do with it. Here is a picture:


Every time I see it I laugh my ass of because I'm all cuddled in like a drunko! HAHAHAOMGWHATAFREAK. Oh well, he's cute with his smirk and all. Why do I share these embarrassing moments online? Why?

Hope you had a good day.

You share these moments because you are a freak and being a freak is the best thing to be! (Great picture, you are way prettier than me. Bitch).

I would agree that Isabel would belong with Kyle if I didn't think he was gay.

Ha! I am glad that you appreciate my freakitude. *g*

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, bogwitch!

Kyle is BISEXUAL, not gay.

Come on! He has that whole 'male best friend you can talk about anything to' thing going on! He just hasn't seen it yet.

Hahaha! Okay, I can see that.

Buddha will show him the way eventually.

Ack! I love it when Kyle gets into Buddhism. Oh, Kyle! <333

It was definitely his turning point.

True. The first episode that I really dug Kyle in was the one where he and Max get drunk. AKA the only episode in which I shipped Max/Liz.

The only thing worse than Max/Liz was Max/Tess. I might have skipped some bits there too. At least I liked Liz.

I guess there was a raging hatred for Tess in fandom. They really tore her apart. I thought it was funny when her Australian accent would come through. EVERY SINGLE EPISODE.

I can see why.

I didn't notice her accent to be honest.

It was definitely noticeable to an American ear.

Just tested it. Yeah, you're right. She definitely slips, but I have to listen for it.

Australian accents sound a lot softer to me than US ones, probably because they're closer to mine. Or something. I can't pick up the slips to Texan accents in SPN at all, even if I'm listening for them.

I was looking for this interview with Jared in which he is super tired and his accent is slipping all over the place, to see if you could hear it, but I can't find it on YouTube now.

There's also this one part in cry_wolf where he says, "All y'all" and it's pretty damn adorable.

It wouldn't have helped, I can't get any sound on You Tube for some reason.

I have troubles with that site sometimes too. Not with sound, but rather with the damn thing freezing my computer up. The price one pays for stalking Jensen and Jared!

The ones embedded in LJ play fine, just not on that site.

I have a lot of Video/Audio issues at the mo.

That's weird about the embedding thing. Have you seen the director's cut for the next episode? It looks good!

I have! Not quite a reformed spoilerwhore yet. I am defintely looking forward to it. Do you think it might be a bit intense to watch at 7 am before work?

Oh man, MAYBE. I think it's gonna be quite hard on my soul to watch Dean die so many different ways. I love that part where they talk in unison though. So funny! It's going to be so sad for me when SPN goes off the air for months. At least the writers' strike seems to be over. So we'll get at least another 3 episodes before summer.

But it's not ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I KNOW! I am sad. It's just about pathetic how upset it makes me.
