A quick note from me after a long day of college. I was just casually going through the tv guide, when I noticed Apparitions is on again tonight.
And I got painfully reminded of my ignorance and lack of posting Gabelfanland news. So I figured it was pretty much now or never, and I opted for the now, simply because I owe it to each and every one of you.
Here's my story. Run if you still can.
I started the Elyes Gabel Board 2 1/2 years ago, with the intention to get together as many fans as I could find. I was sad that there wasn't any kind of appreciation towards this great guy of an actor (and musician nowadays), and I wanted to put an end to that.
I posted and worked on the board and made friends and had fun. We shared our problems and talked about everything Casualty.
I always ment for the EGB to be forever, no matter what. I would even pass it on to a new owner if I had to. I wouldn't stop it.
It went pretty well for those 2 1/2 years, even when Elyes left Casualty I managed to keep up with the little news that came in.
But then came one of the biggest moments of my life; College. Suddenly I was rushed into this whirlwind of crazy schedules and mad assignments and big projects. I had silly hours in college and then there was my saturday job to juggle around aswell.
I'm glad to say I survived the first exams, but now there's even more to worry about. I've got three days of college, work experience, my job on saturday and homework.
And as if I'm not busy enough, I'm attempting another year of NaNoWriMo. You won't be blamed if you call me insane. I pretty much am.
But even my writing had to take a backseat, no matter how determined I was. I just can't work it all out in the same time, and less important things need to wait.
And so my inner fan left Gabelfanland for a while, completely ignoring my responsibilities as your source of Elyes goodies. My sincere apologies.
I don't want to tell you all this just to complain or tell you how sad I am (believe me, I'm not. I'm still a happy person and I love what I'm doing), I just wanted to but everything in perspective. We all know how it goes in life, things start happening and you have to make room for those things to work.
But enough about me now. The most important message of the blabbing above is that I want to try and keep up with everything that comes in, and I will try to post whenever needed. I don't want to promise anything, because I know how that goes ;) But I'll try my hardest!
Now on to the more important things: Elyes Gabel.
The man himself. I truly hope you all realised that Apparitions starring Elyes was on last week on Thursday!! If you didn't, you can still catch it on iPlayer tonight, but I bet you can find it to download somewhere.
If I find the time I might scurry around on the internet and try to find some clips to share with you guys!
The new episode is on tonight at 9.00 pm, but this time without Elyes. I will be back soon with a summary and episode review of the entire thing! Hopefully around sunday, just prod me until I post!
Then there's something else I just found out about: "Dead Set" is Elyes's new project. A short summary:
During a fictional series of Big Brother, a zombie outbreak occurs, but the
house-mates are unaware of the impending doom outside of the Big Brother House.
He plays Danny in the entire five episodes. I'm going to look into it when I'm not as tired as I am now, because I will mess up now.
Boogeyman 3 news is on it's way too, just keep watching this spot!
