Your Daily Dylan

Hello all! Erm, I'm fairly new to this community, but I've been at the other Dylan Moran community for a little while by now. In my intro post there I brought along a recent picspam of our beloved Irishman, and then after joining here figured I should share the lovelies, so ta da!

All drunken stories are basically the same. They're all variations on locking yourself out of something you want to be inside of or locking yourself inside something you don't want to be in.

Dylan Moran picspams are rare and beautiful XD

I'd love to have more .gifs!

Whoa, I feel like I just got showered in confetti or something! :D Alas, the lone .gif was not my own making, just something I found while scouring the interwebs for Dylan and Black Books shinies, but I shall retrace my steps in the hopes of finding more!

Hahaha *throws more confetti and glitter*

I wish i knew how to make .gifs... I would never get anything else done again in my life XD

your icon is SO adorable.

I hope to see more picspams! Do you do something else? Like make icons or fanfiction or something? I wish this comm were more active.

but I've been at the other Dylan Moran community for a little while by now. Which one is the other comm?

^^ that's the only other one I've been able to find, but it's not too much more active than this one, sadly. I've known about Dylan for a fair while, but only recently have I realized how much I adore him and his work, so I'm just now becoming a bit more active :)

Actually, a few months ago I swore to myself I'd never write fanfiction again because it sapped all my efforts for my own stories, but after watching 'A Nice Change' again - I think that's the one - when Fran camps out in Bernard's bed and Manny preps her with bin liners, the mentioning of feeding The Thing under his bed with bananas set my gears whirring, so TECHNICALLY I've got a Black Books/Doctor Who fic in the works. Can't decide if it'll be first or third POV, but it'll definitely be Bernard and Ten to begin with ;) Other than that, I'm a bit of a useless fangirl, alas. Picspams are a blast - I actually did another teensy one of Dylan here after watching The Actors for the first time - and I'll probably try a few more in the near future, just because I can ;)

But thank you, and thank you! :D Definitely more inclined to post up Dylan-driven outbursts now :P

I only found out about him during last semester's exams >.< I watched a bunch of his stand-up and all of Black Books instead of studying for History... But i got the top grade in that. This proves that Dylan actually improves my life XD

Hhahahah I LOVE the Thing in Black Books XD that show is so brilliant! I also first found out about Bill Bailey from that...
Hahha wow! I appreciate any Black Books fanfic (haven't read any yet) but I think i should find out more about Doctor Who in preparation (I know, i know, it's a disgrace that I don't watch it =p)

OMG THE ACTORS! The plot was a bit difficult to follow the first time because I spent the time going OMG OMG OMG DROOL DYLAN! OMG hahahah
Did you notice that the girl his character likes is totally sadistic? XD

Should I watch "A Cock and Bull Story"? I still have to find time in my busy schedule to obsess about Dylan, so I haven't seen everything... Did you like How Do You Want Me?

Oh, I know, the Shakespeare got me all flustered :D I gotta watch that again! But yeah, I agree about the plot. I couldn't find much info about the storyline itself, but I stuck with it because it was serious Dylan overload (like that's a bad thing, right?!). And yeah, his girl was a bit... off, but it somehow fit with all the other mildly-unhinged characters in it, and she complemented Dylan's character well enough, so I'll put up with her since I can't put myself in the move in her stead :P

A Cock and Bull Story and How Do You Want Me? are actually the only works of his I HAVEN'T seen (except for Monster and Like, Totally in their entirety, for shame D:), but A Cock and Bull Story is high up on my list for the sole reason of seeing Dylan on a horse. Bizarre, yes, but I think that's as outlandish as my fangirl tendencies will go, so there we are. I'd have seen it by now, but I haven't been able to find it :( But if you've got the chance to see it, then go for it. It can't be too much stranger than A Cock and Bull Story or A Film With Me In It, so it should be fine :)

But Doctor Who, if you've got the opportunity, I'd say give a few episodes a go. I haven't been horribly obsessed with it for a while, but when I first watched it I could speak of nothing else. Season one (of 2005, not the original, that'll take forever to catch up!) is where you want to start, because the Ninth Doctor is so totally different than the Tenth and you'll get hooked on the show for the wrong reasons. I'm not a science fiction fan in the slightest, but there seems to be a surprising amount of depth to the show, I've found. It's in occasional bursts, yes, but it's there, and quite lovely when it shows :3

But Dylan looked painfully nerdy at times in The Actors XD

I liked How Do You Want Me, but I wouldn't watch it 1 billion times like i did with Black Books.
Hahha he's on a horse? Something tells me he's be incredibly awkward XD

Yeah that's what I meant... watching the original would take up like a decade...

I watched Lost for a bit of a science fiction fix... even though that's not the point of the show...
