The Mentalist

I'm watching episode 9 of the second season of The Mentalist. Is anybody else a fan? Just curious, because I've noticed about a dozen or so times where Simon Baker's (Jane) accent slips from his fake American (which is, admittedly, usually very good) to his native Australian in this episode alone. I have also noticed that Owain Yeoman (Rigsby) seems to slip into his native accent (Welsh) more in the same episodes that Simon Baker slips into his native accent. And it's been happening more during the second season than it did in the first. Is it lazy acting? Or do the directors/producers/whatevers think that slipping in the accents makes the characters more mysterious? Because I get a twitch every time their accents slip. Not that they aren't lovely accents (Baker's especially, though, overall, his voice is just incredibly pleasant). I just think it shows more talent to fake an accent authentically than to only halfheartedly try.

However, I have heard worse accents before. Philip Glenister plays an American in the canceled ITV drama Demons and has, by far, the worst fake accent I've ever heard.

Oooo. Question, f-list, what's the worst fake accent you've heard?

Great Movie Meme

I've done this before, but it's fun! Meme ganked from d_tepes.

1. Pick 20 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb, and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling/using IMDb search functions.


Edit: Since this is cross posted to my ij, lj, and dw accounts, and I'm not sure how editing each post will effect the others (I know that if I edit the dw entry, then the others edited as well, but I don't know about how editing just the ij or lj will effect the other posts), I'm going use all the answers on the same post...I hope that makes sense, because I really didn't think about it before posting.

Quotes are hereCollapse )

In other news, I've started watching True Blood again. All it took was seeing Sookie/Eric icons and gifs to make me want to watch again. I'm all caught up and can't wait to see the next episode!

Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3

As the subject says, this is a test. I'm checking to see how cross-posting from my dreamwidth to both my lj and my ij goes. So...Testing.

Blah, Blah, Blah, BlahCollapse )

Edit: SUCCESS!
(And now I'm wondering if I can "cross-edit" as well...Ah, we'll see.)

Edit2: Also, SUCCESS! Cross-editing works!
I deleted pomegranatefic and pomegranateicon. pomegranatefic because I'm not posting any of my fics to lj anymore (strictly fanfic sites and ij now). And pomegranateicon because I don't want to have to sign out of my regular account and then sign in to that one just to post icons. So, because I have a lot of icontest communities I participate in here, I'm going to create an icon community where I can share my icons (all the icons that were in pomegranateicon can be found in my ij).

ETA: brimac_icons is the new home of my graphics.
