Deleted Scenes! [19 Aug 2007|09:12pm]

Edge of Reason was an incredibly frustrating movie for me because, on one hand, I was very happy they decided to make Daniel a major player, considering he wasn't one in the book.

On the other hand, they devoted a lot of time to screwball comedy sequences that could have been devoted to other things, like fleshing out the Mark/Bridget relationship.

While browsing Youtube today, I found some deleted scenes that are lovely and could've served this purpose hadn't they been, well, deleted:

This one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3Gi5Vk22ZY#eIN0YWPw5yI

And this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9ILX9gica0

The second one is really short, but cute. The first is a MUST SEE! Both uploaded by YouTube member sandrafaith. :)

And since I'm here, sassy sipping!Collapse )

Column? [14 Nov 2006|05:12am]

Any news on when/if we'll be getting more of Fielding's Independent columns? I rely on jonesb for column updates, but it has been rather quiet.

I hope Fielding is considering getting back to it at some point in the future, if only to settle the whole Mark/Daniel paternity debacle.

Bridget's Scary Knickers [07 Oct 2006|01:16pm]

[ mood | creative ]

from the BBC:

Charity Auction of Bridget Jones' Knickers

for those who don't want to click the BBC News link:

Web sale for Bridget Jones' pants

Bridget Jones's underpants, signed by Hugh Grant

A pair of outsized underpants from the film Bridget Jones's Diary are to be sold on the internet, weeks after they fetched £2,000 at a charity auction.
The pants, which have been signed by actor Hugh Grant with the message "Hello Mummy! Lots of love and kisses", were first auctioned on 14 September.

The sale took place in central London to benefit The Royal Parks Foundation.

Winning bidder Anna Mann said she decided to re-auction the pants on eBay to raise more money for the charity.

'Exciting bidding'

Ms Mann, who is a trustee of the charity, said: "It's such a great gift that I want every Bridget Jones fan to be able to bid and raise even more money for The Royal Parks and my own special interest of providing sport and open space for children."

Bridget Jones' Diary, starring Grant and Renee Zellweger, was a huge hit in 2001.

Several scenes from the second Bridget Jones film, The Edge of Reason, were shot in The Royal Parks, including the fight between Colin Firth and Grant.

Sara Lom, chief executive of The Royal Parks Foundation, said: "We are delighted that the London auction of the pants raised £2,000.

"Now we look forward to some equally exciting bidding between international fans on the world wide web."

The internet action will start at 1200 BST on Sunday, ending a week later at 1200 BST on Sunday 15 October.

I'm going for a colour appointment. What colour should I dye it? Light Brown, Reddish (like it is in my icon for this post) or something else?

Should I cut it short or give myself some bangs?

I'll put up pictures when it's done!

Mark vs. Fitzwilliam [25 Apr 2006|11:31pm]

[ mood | sleepy ]

Hey! I've just joined because at my journal I made a poll: Mr. Darcy vs. Mark Darcy. (It came from an original Macfadyen v. Firth poll.There is no need to vote in it...as I think I can guess for whom you would all vote, and fear not, for he is already winning.)

Anyway,I ordinarily wouldn't do this, but the link has been dropped in a few Austen communities, and I thought that seemed an unfair advantage for Mr. Darcy, even if Mark Darcy is based off Mr. Darcy anyway.

So...please come! Vote! Fitzwilliam Darcy vs. Mark Darcy: Lethal Smackdown!

Seriously, though, it was like two days ago, but I refuse to rest until Mark Darcy has won this one, and right now he's behind by like...18.

So, I'm a bit biased.

Anybody feel like Bridget? [21 Jan 2006|10:32pm]

[ mood | tired ]

Everytime I re-read either book, I want to write, think or talk like Bridget. I'll write in my diary like Bridget, write emails like Bridget (ex. "V. tired today", "Feel like mountain climber, Paris Hilton, similar"). It just makes me giggle everytime it happens. Makes me feel British too! I wish I was living in London, trading ciggies with my mates and gossiping over a bottle of wine and Milk Tray.

P.S. I know things are a bit slow...anybody have any good icons?
