It's already the next day in my part of the world but for John it is still March 11th, the day he turns 50. He's sharing his birthday celebrations with us via pictures and videos, so I thought this would be a good time to post my selfies from the Birmingham panto back in January. The background of the first was a bit overlit due to sunshine, so the next day we asked for the wall. Little did I know that the sunshine then was gone for the week and it was all grey and rain and cold!

PS: If you haven't seen his new hair color and style yet, go here and be shocked: https://twitter.com/JohnBarrowman/status/840699582451408896

For those who don't know, he has been grey for many many years and we all knew he colored his hair. So a few days ago he shaved it all off and now it is short and natural grey. I always said sooner or later he'll have to look his age. The transition comes as a shock so all of a sudden and we don't think he'll keep it, as he surely has to look young for TV, but I always liked a silver fox (looking at you, Richard Dean Anderson and Sean Pertwee) so I certainly wouldn't mind! I think if the hair was a bit longer it could look great. Maybe they could start to dye his temples grey at least or something...

In the past few days Vic Mignogna tweeted two things that both reminded me of John Barrowman. I can't help it, I feel as if they are doing this just for me ;)

First they had fun with a shark:

And just today a live action "Futurama" fanfilm came out. You can watch it here if you like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-1RMKdWz8M

If you just want to see Vic's part, he comes at minute 15:55 and I love it. Hilarious. Beware of joysticks and pixelation ;)

I may soon need to do a masterlist for all the comparison pictures. In the meantime, follow the tag.

John Barrowman recently posted these two pictures, one from his "Torchwood" days, the other a recent one from the "Arrow" set. I couldn't help seeing the similarity! This is another one for my comparisons collection. I probably should start another masterlist! For now you'll have to click the tag to see the others: http://dieastra.livejournal.com/tag/comparisons

Some friends here know that I recently struggled a bit with my love for John Barrowman, you know how it is, little things start to grate, and you start to wonder about some of his decisions and general over the top behavior (I'm still not over that weird stripey suit with short pants he wore when presenting an award show). But then he goes and does something awesome and I am back.

Today he got the Human Rights Campaign award for being out and proud and helping the community in every way possible. I hadn't known that he actually helped shaping UK laws (I only knew that they changed the music charts counting system when he started to sell his CDs at QVC). That's pretty big. Here is the video of his acceptance speech and it is a really good one. This is why we love him:

Tonight was a gala with Disney songs in the Royal Albert Hall, moderated by John Barrowman. Apparently tickets sold out in June within minutes, and it was only a few weeks ago when John or anyone else actually was announced for this (Alan Menken also was there and a lot of others). Somehow, some fans found some spare tickets. I didn't even bother and I hear now that it was also recorded for TV and radio, so we will get to see it in time.

I'm happy to report that after a while of wondering whether I was still in the JB fandom (do yourself a favor and don't watch the Celibrity Juice show that aired on Thursday. It's really not good) he just has to go and sing some Disney songs and I am back!

Here are two three short clips. I'll also add the links in case the embedding isn't working.

Background: When I said I think a love triangle will happen once David arrives, I totally meant it in the straight way. Because of "You people and your quaint little categories" (quote Jack Harkness). But then I got this awesome comment in a forum: Better be careful, Venus might get jealous..... And now of course I HAD to put a different perspective on it! So I let me inspire by these pictures.

First Nathan Fillion stole Wil Wheaton’s wife Anne.

Then John Barrowman stole Wil Wheaton and Anne was miffed.

And then the Thinker stole David and the Venus was equally miffed ;)

Another one of my favorite comparison posts ;) The first video I have posted before, the second I just found right now. And I am having the greatest fun. Again I am amazed that I most definitely seem to have a type ;)

Guys singing love duets, without any care. And not just singing, but really giving into it. There is even a kiss at the end in both - one at the mouth, the other one at the cheek. And it does not matter one bit that only one of those four is openly gay.

1. John Barrowman and Stephen Amell - Music of the night from Phantom of the opera:

Yeah, basically. This is one of the things of my flail post and what I am waiting to pre-order. And then it will take at least another half year to actually get.

I've avoided posting pictures of Jack so far (these are from a convention last November) as some of us felt that the face was a bit off. I have to agree, I don't see quite John Barrowman in there yet, and the reason is that they usually go for a neutral expression with their figures, so they can be used for more scenes. Just a little smirk would do wonders to him. They also said though that they are still working on the head and it was barely ready for the con. So I am confident that by the time it is finished, we will be blown away as usual. Also the actors are always hugely involved and it is only done with their approval.

Aside from all this, what also threw me, how young he looks! But of course it has been ten years already and unfortunately John is not a never aging immortal (although you wouldn't believe he is approaching 50 either)

From day one, when I ordered that first Eleventh Doctor, it was my biggest wish to get a Jack and I actually wrote it into the comments section.

More pictures of other planned figures (War Doctor, Eight Doctor, Rose, Ninth Doctor, Clara, Tenth Doctor in pyjama) here: Upcoming Big Chief Studios Figures

A fun meme, snagged from [personal profile] elrhiarhodan and [personal profile] sandy79

Describe yourself: I Am What I Am, The Kid Inside, I’m so excited, Hair

How do you feel: Feeling Good, Being Alive

If you could go anywhere, where would it be: I Happen To Like New York, Hollywood, Loch Lomond, Amarillo, Chicago, Sunset Boulevard, Viva Las Vegas, Weekend In New England

Favourite mode of transportation: High Flying Adored

Your best friend: Mandy, Danny Boy, Laura, Maria, Sandy, Have You Met Miss Jones?

Favourite time of the day: Night And Day, In The Still Of The Night, On Such A Night As This

If your life was a TV show, what would it be called: Anything Goes

What is life to you: It’s De-lovely, Come What May, That’s Life

Relationship status: Live Alone And Like It, What Is This Thing Called Love?

Your fear: Don’t Fence Me In, Please Remember Me

I need to catch up on my comparison pictures, I have so many more which I never posted. But here is a new one from yesterday, I couldn't help noticing similarities (I found them while looking for JB in a kilt for [profile] alumfelga ;) ) So here's John Barrowman compared with himself - or: Some things never change!

Okay, one more, while I'm at it - William Shatner and John Barrowman:
