Decades [Band of Brothers & The Pacific Picspam]  

 Ebbene sì. EBBENE SI. Torno a postare qualcosa su LJ dopo una latitanza di circa tre mesi. 
Che dire?
Domani parto. E sono in iper panico. Ho la febbre. La valigia da finire. AIUTO. Credo morire. Per chi non sapesse (come fate a non sapere?) vado in Erasmus nove mesi a Birmingham. Non credo di essere pronta psicologicamente, fisicamente, tuttomente. 

OH INSOMMA. Per distrarmi dal panico crescente che mi uccideva nei giorni scorsi, ho giustamente pensato di partecipare alla nuova challenge di picspammy , ovvero quella di rappresentare fandomisticamente un canzone, etc. E pensandoci, mi sono resa conto che sia in un mio fanmix di The Pacific e che in quello meraviglioso della cara sanzina89 su Band of Brothers c'era questa meravigliosa canzone dei Joy Division, che è davvero davvero perfetta. E che ogni volta che la sento mi viene da piangere tanto è perfetta. Quindi ho pensato, perchè non picspammarla? E infatti. Here we go. (Scusate il pessimo photoshoppaggio etc, ma come ben saprete sono incapace ;__;)

(Dio, vi prego vi prego, pensatemi domani quando sarò perduta nel bel mezzo dell'Inghilterra, solissima e con mille valigie. Vivibì.)

Okay io piango, piango tantissimo. L'altro giorno mica avevo capito perché mi avessi chiesto le caps! Ora tutto torna invece ed è COSI' bello. ;////////; Troppo awesomess (e tristezza) tutta insieme e sono felice e piango insieme. T_T Great job, mia cara Martu! ♥♥♥

E a Birmingham andrà tutto bene, me lo sento! Stare nel panico assoluto credo sia normale ora, però quando è facile parlare quando non si è nella situazione, y/y? ;_; Comunque ANDRA' TUTTO BENE. Non lo smetterò di ripetere. Probabilmente domani sera ti manderò un messaggio per sapere se è tutto okay, ora è salita un po' d'ansia pure a me. ù__ù (♥)

Hey! This is rather nice. I bet that Hanks, Spielberg and Goetzman's hearts would do a collective dance if they had taken a gander at the above.

Tesora è bellissimo! Bellissimo. E ancora di più perchè almeno in parte sento che tra nn molto potrò partecipare al sentimento popolare e alle lacrime che vi assalgono tutte al solo pensiero (stasera comincio BoB).
Comunque tesoro IN BOCCA AL LUPO per tutto, vedrai che andrà tutto bene e uscirai vittoriosa da questa esperienza. questi sono i momenti più difficili perchè bisogna ambientarsi, ma presto vedrai solo i lati positivi! Un bacione, ti stringo forte! (E ti regalo un po' di Barney per scacciare l'ansia!)

AWWWWWWWW CHE BELLO! Non vedo l'ora tu veda BoB, dio che meraviglia! >///////<
E creeepi! Al momento sono in una sorta di limbo perchè conosco giusto la mia coinquilina ed è abbastanza deprimente, ma spero in meglio nei prossimi giorni! ;__; Grazie tesoro!♥
Eleonoraeleblack on September 17th, 2010 12:49 pm (UTC)
BoB è qualcosa di..indescrivibile....sono quasi a metà serie e lo AMO. Non pensavo che avrei amato qualcosa sulla guerra in questo modo, nno pensavo potesse rientrare tra le cose che mi piacciono. E invece ho apprezzato ogni minuto. <3333333333333333

in bocca al lupo per l'erasmus *.* immagino ci sia il panico all'inizio ma penso che fra poco tipo scriverai che non vorrai più tornare xDDDD

cmq non conosco il fandom però il picspam è veramente bello :)

Creeepi! Il panico iniziale ancora non è finito perchè le lezioni mi inizieranno tra una decina di giorni ma ce la farò! \o/

E graaazie! Se tu avessi tempo dovresti vedere entrambe le miniserie, perchè sono a dir poco meravigliose >/////

I LOVE Band of Brothers. Gorgeous pics.

The Pacific, on the other hand, disappointed me and I didn't even finish watching it.

BUT, love the idea for a picspam! :)

Argh, why didn't you like The Pacific? At which episoded did you arrived? Cause it gets really better in the last episodes! You should give it another try! :D

Thank yoooou! ♥♥♥

lol. For the longest time I felt I was the only one who didn't enjoy The Pacific but, since talking to others, I know I'm not alone. But still. I watched The Pacific from the very first episode and went straight through until episode eight, watching each week.

It's an incredibly well-made production, there's no doubt about that. Visually, it's spectacular. However, I wasn't as drawn into the characters and their stories. The actors were all good, but the characters didn't grab me. I found myself forgetting their names or not really worrying about their fates. I thought that Band of Brothers, with its much, much larger cast, did a better job at making the characters likeable, relatable and interesting. There were some moments in BoB that were just so powerful or heroic. I just felt The Pacific was missing that little extra ...something...specifically regarding character development.

I might give it another chance one day. I only had two episodes left.

That's interesting as I'm currently on episode 4 of The Pacific, and although I intend to watch all the series I do feel the same as you in many ways. Although I'm interested in the main characters, I'm constantly looking at the characters in the background and wanting to know about them as well. I also feel that a lot of what I learn about people comes from watching their interaction with others, and I don't think this is shown as obviously in The Pacific. The small oments were the best in BoB and I desperately want to see them in The Pacific but just can't find them.

Also, and I don't know if this is relevant, and I'm not meaning and disrespect to anyone involved or anything like that, but I feel The Pacific was more of a project that everyone turned up to and then went home. It's great that they've told the story and they have brought that side of the war to people's attention. It needed to be done. But I don't feel like everyone was as emotionally involved, and therfore I think maybe that translates to the audience. Also I think BoB had more of the veterans to help them. I don't mean in any of this that the actors or producers etc didn't do a spectacular job, I just think other circumstances (like being the second production) had their effect.
Lauramozartfan1313 on November 26th, 2010 12:04 am (UTC)
I agree. The Pacific lacked that emotional involvement. And those quieter moments.

I. LOVE. THIS. I was planning on a Pacific spam for this challenge as well, and now the bar is like WAY high because this is just beautiful. You picked so many amazing moments. ♥♥♥♥ And I am snagging that mix, if I haven't already! :)

Awwww, you're too kind! >///< Thank you so much! And you should totally make a picspam on The Pacific, more Pacific more happiness! :D
