A little Droughtlander ease…

Droughtlander is still in full swing, but thankfully, our symptoms are eased with the arrival of Season Two now currently available on DVD and Blu-ray. We’ve seen our members post pictures of their new treasure and express their giddiness.

I don’t have my copy yet…but sooooooon. There have been so many gifs and pictures released to help me want it all the more.

We get to relive Frank’s meltdown after finding out the woman he loves is carrying another man’s child. For him to realize someone else gave her what he could not.

One of my favorite moments with Roger and Claire is this:

Roger asks Claire.gif

That one brief moment where you can see the anguish on Roger’s face. You know that he truly loved and appreciated the Reverend for taking him in as a 5-year old boy and loving him as much as any biological father would. Not many people would take in a child they barely knew and love them unconditionally.

But, at the heart of this story is the love that Claire and Jamie still have for each other. There are good times and there were so many bad times in France and Scotland, and even though they may have been at odds with each other they still loved each other with every fiber of their being.

Season Two was a tough season for Claire and Jamie, but it will shape them into the people they become later in life. Soon, I will have my excited little hands on Season Two to watch and watch and watch some more.

Dinna fash, Heughligans, Season Three will be here before we know it!

Some Droughtlander Relief Next Month

On October 18th, we’ve got 2 exciting new things to get distract us for a while.

First, we have The Making of Outlander. It looks gorgeous and I assure you we will have a review up as soon as we get it in our eager little clutches.

And on the same day, we have an anthology with a new Diana Gabaldon short story. The Highway Kind: Tales of Fast Cars, Desperate Drivers, and Dark Roads contains the short story Fogmeister which is based on Berndt Rosemeyer, Germany’s most famous race-driver.

And if you’re wondering why this has no Jamie Fraser, I’ll let Diana explain. But I’d read Diana explaining the phone book, so I’m sure I’ll read it as soon as it’s out and will review it as well.

So, happy reading everyone!

Little Photoshop of Horrors

I admit it, I love me some Photoshop.

Blemish? Erase it!
Double chin? Lose 20lbs instantly with the swipe of a paintbrush!

Photoshop is God’s gift to the people like me who never seem to take a good selfie.

However, there is a point where photoshopping can sometimes become scary
….fan edits.

Do you remember when Sam was cast as Jamie and we all couldn’t wait to see how he looked  with red hair or in a kilt? We stalked social media daily waiting for the first photos to be released. Well, some people just couldn’t wait and decided it’d be much easier to mock up their own idea of how Sam would look as Jamie.

I present to you, the “first” images of Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser in Outlander…

Now let’s compare that to the actual first photo of Sam as Jamie…

See what I’m getting at? Nothing compares to the real thing. It’s pretty hard to improve on perfection.

Now, some of these Photoshop creations are pretty funny and creative…

And it’s a good thing Sam has a long contract, because he’s going to need the money to support all his IMAGINARY internet children…

And lastly, since Christmas is only 5 months away, you’d better be good because Sam sees you while your sleeping…
