Updates soon
I'm so sorry for lack of updates but I had some problems with my computer (resulting in reinstalling both systems) and my I-net connection - so it took some time before I got everything in place again. I also went to a concert (band playing: Týr, Heidevolk and Alestorm) - it was AWESOME but next few days I was just dead, and, what's worse, semi deaf (I still hear this strange noise which I know is not real). Plus, my survey, which is a part of my thesis, went totally wrong in my first group, which left me really depressed.

But there are some good news - I have tons of new stuff about our Sammy - loads of screencaps and I made some scans. I'll post them on Sunday, because tomorrow I'll be on a trip. Also - tomorrow there is Sam's birthday!!! YAAAY! smile

Again, sorry for this but I'll try to make up for it and post soon.

New layout in the Gallery! and reCaptcha.
We have a spanking new layout in the Gallery!!! :) Yikes. Tell me whether you like it or not! I really need feedback. I know that colors are... ummm, challenging and kinda BP style but I like this design. And the header was made from my favourite pic of Sam ever.

Also, there is a new "feature" in the Gallery. I already tried it on my other sites and it works quite well. All those spammers and bots get on my nerves so I decided to add an additional step during the registration in the Gallery - now, before one becomes a fully-fledged user, one must pass the reCaptcha. laughing Don't worry, it's not that bad, and if you're a human wink - it will be easy to fill. I decided to add this only during registration, not posting comments - so it should be more convenient for you. Already registered users don't have to do anything so you can ignore this if you are one. I'm not planning to add something like this to comments if I'm not forced to do so. It's still not tweaked so the error message looks really ugly but I'm working on it. I will also add some more instructions to it. I hope it will stop most of spammer bots.

Until I solve all my problems with this, the Gallery can be viewed without registering. After that, when I'm sure everything works fine, it will be closed to anonymous browsing.

Screencaps from "Beautiful People"
I've added screencaps from episodes 1, 2 and 3 of "Beautiful People" to the gallery! This show is amazing smile - very funny - and Sam is cuter than ever!!!! tongue

See? and guess what? They're in HQ - they were made from HD version (1280x720)!

More to come!

Making those screencaps costs me a lot of effort. Please, respect that. DO NOT REMOVE THE TAG WHEN REPOSTING! NO HOTLINKING!

Screencaps from "The South Bank Show" episode
I finally screencapped Alan Bennett's episode of "The South Bank Show". It's very nice and it also has a small part about "History Boys" - a glimpse of boys joking with Alan, playing with a ball and a short scene from one of the performances. smile Caps this way:

Screencaps from "Strange" - episode 0
Today is my Birthday - yay me! So let's celebrate it - I made screencaps from the first episode of "Strange" (which is not really first but a pilot, surprise)! smile Sam plays Doddington, a young priest in it and looks his usual cute self. Looking extremely hot in the same time, of course, because he easily manages to do both. A priest shouldn't be allowed to look THAT hot. Enjoy:

Here are all the screencaps:

Pity the show got cancelled - it was very good, I highly recommend it if you are able to watch it. I would like to see what happened next and especially, see Doddington character developed some more and not only being a Black's doormat. wink More caps coming soon!

More info on "Beast of Orlok"
Part one of "Beast of Orlok" will be available for download on Big Finish site on 4th April!!! smile WOOHOO! Next part will be released in the following weak - each episode premieres at 6 pm. Then it will be released on CD. Awesome!

"Third in the run of brand new Eighth Doctor adventures is The Beast of Orlok, which finds the Doctor (Paul McGann) and Lucie Miller (Sheridan Smith) in Germany, where they encounter a creature unlike anything either of them has seen before." - sounds interesting!

Sam plays Hans, son of Frau Tod, "a no-nonsense landlady who has a sharp tongue and a mean left hook".

Writer and director, Barnaby Edwards, says about Sam: "I cast Sam on the strength of his central performance in Alan Bennett’s The History Boys, for which he received both a Tony and Olivier award nomination. I wanted someone young, articulate, witty, intelligent and sincere for the role of Hans. Sam has those qualities in spades." Of course, he does!!!!! Awww.

Sam in "Wilfred Owen: A Rememberance Tale"
Today I have a set of caps from "Wilfred Owen" documentary. Sam played Owen, of course, and read his poetry. smile I highly recommend this documentary - it's amazing, and Owen's poetry is something you can miss. Of course, I've never had it at school (yup, my school literature lessons were that shitty!) - but fortunately I managed to read it anyway. It's devastating and so good at the same time. Plus all documentaries about wars, especially World War I, just leave me floored and totally scared. I guess it's a good thing.

On a lighter note - the film also has a lot of scenes with Sam, and especially, him writing - and yes, those screencaps are the proof I have a bit of not-so-healthy wink obsession about certain person's hands. And a little warning wink - say hi to Sam's moustache!!! I'm not yet sure if I like it, I think I need to get used to it - but nice hair style!

After seeing this docu I made a mental note to finally read Pat Barker's "Regeneration". smile

A few screencaps from "Coupling"
I've added a bunch of screencaps from "Coupling" - Sam had small role there, ok, small is not even a word, but he looks cuter than ever so it's worth to catch a glimpse of him in this one - and the show itself is also very good (and funny!).

I like him in this shirt. Hmpf. smile
