Fangirl, shy, writer, currently taking part in the RCIA process with the intention to convert to the Roman Catholic Church during Easter vigil 2014.

Also - deeply impressed and inspired by the Franciscan spirituality and trying to follow it in at least some aspects, with the desire to grow into it further.

Check out my faith blog for more on my unexpected journey (I talk about it here as well, but there you'll get the elaborate version, from the beginning to the end, including thoughts, pondering, doubts, fears, etc. etc.).

As for my main interests/fandoms: Sherlock Holmes in most incarnations, Person of Interest and Doctor Who (classic and new), creepy stuff and spies (fictional and real life espionage).

As well as some of my favourite actors: Jim Caviezel, Daniel Craig and Benedict Cumberbatch.

But I watch and read a lot of stuff and everything may creep in here at some point.

Enjoy the pretty and welcome to the insanity party!

Michael W. Smith: A New Hallelujah DVD - Live: Michael W. Smith →

Another Michael W. Smith DVD! If it is anything like his Worship DVD, it will be amazing! ♥ Time to do some shopping, methinks! :D

That’s what I’d call a good start into the new week! Certainly much better than the fire/toaster accident from last Monday!

Quote reblogged from nine inch nails with 4,363 notes

I’ve been less than honest about what I’ve really been up to lately. For the last year I’ve been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly fucking great. This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again. My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!

Trent Reznor, 5.28.13. New NIN album later this year on Columbia Records. (via nineinchnails)

Wow! That’s what I’d call unexpected news…

And just like that, Nine Inch Nails are back.

Wow! That is very much unexpected! I’m curious how they will return/possible new albums, etc.

Le concert/Концерт - Trailer

***

Granted, it is a French and not a Russian movie, but the first half of the movie takes place almost exclusively in Russia and the main characters are Russian, so it does count, I’d say :-) 

And it’s an amazing movie! Wonderful characters, great music (Tchaikovsky), captivating atmosphere and, not to forget, amazing writing.

Definitely worth watching!

Post reblogged from Compartmentalising with 2 notes

compartmentalising:

The festival’s website says this will be “their only festival show in Germany”.

But will it be their only show? That’s what I need to know.

I really don’t want to do a festival. But if it’s my only chance to see them, I might at least consider it.

Oh, arrgh.

I hate festivals! ‘The Kammer’ is doing the same, only it’s Blackfield in Gelsenkirchen. Tickets for one day are nearly €70 and - much as I love them - I’m not sure if I want to spend that much, especially since I absolutely don’t care about the other bands. On the other hand - it is my favourite band and I would love to see them live as often as any possible. It’s quite a dilemma…  /first world problems

But of course, Beethoven’s Virus is not just about the drama and the fluffy hair, but also/even more about the music. And that is absolutely amazing! Not only the well-known classical pieces, but also the rest of the OST, like the song above, Passion, which happens to be my favorite from the soundtrack.

It’s just so very beautiful!

Beethoven Virus

Kang Gun Woo:"But what happened to your arm actually?"
Kang Mae:"I just hurt it. Why?"
*silence*
Kang Mae:"Do I look like I’m pretending to be hurt so that I can let you conduct?"

Beethoven Virus, episode 4

Yep, still watching, but seeing that the show only has 18 episodes, I’m trying to make it last, to  savour each episode. It’s just such a lovely series! 

Also: Kim Myung-min has very fluffy hair in it!

And I finally remembered where I know him from/why he seemed so familiar  He played in Bad Family,another drama that I loved, Oh Dal-Geon, the fake uncle! He really is good. I like him! And apparently, one of his last projects was a spy movie! I may have to find that one!)

ETA: And I just realized that he also played in Detective K, the Korean Sherlock Holmes! He really is good!

And does anyone know if there’s somewhere a video of the press conference with the orchestra? I would certainly love to see that…

Phantom of the Opera- Lindsey Stirling (by lindseystomp)

This is absolutely amazing! It’s too bad that she only does an US-tour. If she would come anywhere near me, I would so try to see her!
