Alles Was Zählt and my weekend

So, as I mentioned in my last post, I haven't been having as much online time lately and it means I haven't been able to read my flist as much. It makes me sad when I fall behind, so I just created a new filter for my LJ (IJ people can ignore this) that just has people on it (no comms). I don't think I've missed anyone, but if you can't see this post, please let me know so I can add you to that filter.

In other news. lilithilien has got me watching a new show. I can't really believe it, but it's a soap opera. A German soap opera at that called Alles Was Zählt. She actually started helping the translate and sub the storyline of Deniz and Roman, but needed help with some of the vidding aspects. I ended up spending last Friday over at her apartment showing her how to use Adobe Premier and she'd show me pictures of cute boys kissing, and I'm pretty sure I was lost then. It's actually pretty good, and most of the time I can even forget it's a soap opera (it's just when a new character shows up and you get the whole "Oh Sarah! When did you get back from South America? I thought you were hiding there from your crazy ex-boyfriend after he made you miscarry your triplets then ran away with you long lost twin sister" type lines that you remember :P). If anyone is interested in checking it out, you can find lilithilien YouTube group here. And just to give you a little taste of the pretty boys in action:


To thank me for helping her with the vidding stuff, lilithilien took me out for dinner on Thursday night and we had a blast. You know, I grew up in a pretty prudish house hold but being in fandom has really gotten me to lose a lot of that. I mean, the stuff we talk about here, at great lengths no less, kind of normalizes things, especially pertaining to sex. So it was kind of funny when, in a crowded restaurant, started talking about porn. I haven't really had many of these conversations out loud, or in public places, so it was amusing to watch the guy at the table sometimes stop his conversation as he listened into ours. :P

So, I came to the conclusion today, that if I'm going to ramble, it's really best if I do it online in writing rather than verbally. celtic_tigress is doing project on fandom for her English Honours program and had posted to some comms asking if she could interview people in fandom. I said sure, so today she called me and we (well, mostly me) talked for a while. She said she got what she needed from me, but I kept forgetting what the original question was halfway through my answer. I really have to get my rambling under control. Anyways, it was fun to do, and she'll be posting the interviews soon. It'll be interesting to hear what other people had to say.

Isn't it just? They haven't translated all the episodes yet, but I've been assured that there's more locker room make out and pushing against the wall. :D

Is that the one with Christian and Olli? I've got to start watching that one. But in either case, must watch!

No, I think Christian and Olli are the *other* gay German soap opera couple. This clip was of Deniz and Roman. It's a fun soap, and I was able to get through all the clips posted in a week.

I am very impressed with these pretty boys, but I am fighting the temptation to go watch since you know I have school and all that stuff, and I already avoid far too much. :-) I give it three days and I will break under the pressure.

Break. Break. Break. Break.

It's an interesting story line. Sometimes a little hokey, and a little hard to follow since it's one storyline in a larger show, but still. Also, v. pretty.

It doesn't take much time to watch them, since each episode is between 5-10 minutes. Just. Give Deniz a chance, he's kind of an ass at first.

Relatedly, it makes me sad to realize that since I last did a clean out of my icons and got rid of many of my old QaF icons, I no longer have any boy kissing icons :((
