Outlander, Lord of the Thing

One Thing to Rule Them All!

For those of you who think you know Outlander, think again. There’s a back story that no one has talked about till now…

While I was wandering about through Twitterland, I came across a tweet (as you do), offering an Outlander Relic as a contest prize. Now me being me, I just HAD to have a look.

Contest Thing

A CONTEST!! I LOVE CONTESTS!

So I did the right thing and Retweeted the Thing and then tweeted why I think the Thing should be mine.

Thing Tweet

 Now, I don’t know about you but I don’t remember this Thing being in any of the scenes I’ve seen in Outlander. Remember the UK is in an Outlander Wasteland. (Cue the Tumbleweed.) So, I decided to do some research to see if I could uncover the mystery of the Outlander Thing. The results may surprise you.

In this scene with Claire and Dougal, Claire discovers the Thing behind a log. Wait, you didn’t notice it, me neither!

Claire finds the Thing bigger

And at this point things start getting a bit weird. I mean I can handle the time travel thing and the going through the stones thing and every other thing but THIS Thing kind of scrambles that thing inside my head.

Here, I’ll let Angus explain it.

 Thing for that thing

Well, that’s an understatement if I ever heard one. Moving on, Claire takes the Thing back to Castle Leoch, where she bumps into Geillis Duncan whilst taking her Thing for a wee walk. I mean seriously, who takes Things for a walk? (Look in the basket) I know right! I didn’t notice that Thing either till now!

Geillis and Claire thing

Who wouldn’t be? Am I right? Strange woman appears out of nowhere and things start happening.

Because the McKenzie Clan feel bad for Claire, lost and alone, they invite her to have dinner in the Great Hall on the evening, But, things aren’t what they seem. Have a look.

trying to get me drunk thing

If you think this has become a game of spot the Thing, you aren’t far off! There’s more.

Jamie takes Claire for a walk, he’s trying to see what the thing is about that Thing she carries with her and things, as you would expect, don’t go to plan.

Whilst out on their walk, Jamie and Claire come upon some redcoat deserters who, you guessed it, tried to take Claire’s Thing. Claire kills them. And if things couldn’t get any worse, Jamie decides to take possession of Claire’s Thing for everyone’s safety but Claire tells him a thing or two!

I'm not coming till you give me back my THING!

So, because Jamie feels bad for Claire about that thing that happened with the Thing, he gives it back to her promising he will never try to take her Thing from her again. Awww isn’t that sweet.

outlander thing complete 1

In the  midst of the thing that happened with the Thing and the Redcoats deserters, Jamie tells Claire he needs to go meet a man about some thing that happened at Fort William in order to clear his name. He tells Claire to wait for him in the woods.

Claire Oh so Bored!

Well, Claire being Claire, wanders about the woods and as she steps through out into a clearing, she sees that stone circle thing where she thinks she did that time travel thing from. Desperate to get back to Frank and show him her Thing, she starts to run towards the stone thing on the hill.  Only to be intercepted by BLACK JACK RANDALL.

You guessed it, he’s dying to have a look at her Thing.

Claire and the thing BJR

 GOOD GAWD! Where did this thing come from?

gollum with the thing

Hey and isn’t this the guy from that Crimson Thing? What’s he doing with Claire’s Thing?

Richard Rankin with that thing

Ok, I had to put Richard Rankin in here somewhere.

Now, on with the story. Jamie rescues Claire and her Thing from that Black Jack guy and the McKenzies decide that the only way to keep Claire safe is for her to marry Jamie. Well, he did give her back her Thing and he does think she’s kind of hot even if she is a bit weird.

The Wedding Day

wedding thing

Claire is not happy because someone has taken her Thing and she isn’t in the mood to kill someone on her wedding day!

ron with the thing

Well the thing is, the executive producer has Claire’s Thing…

But all’s well that ends well. Claire and Jamie get married. They do that thing many times and the next morning Claire discovers that Jamie has once again returned her Thing to her. Aww that’s the nicest thing for someone to give you back your Thing.

forget the two rings what's with this thing 2

Stay tuned for the second half of Outlander,

Lord of the Thing coming soon.

Outlander Pick Up Lines

As long as men have been pursuing women, they have had to invent all sorts of creative ways of getting noticed. From chest pounding to flashy cars, women knew that getting picked up was a well known hazard throughout history. But forget all that strutting and flailing about, any Lassie with two brain cells to rub together knows that the Pun is not necessarily Mightier than the Sword.  (That wasn’t a typo!)

So let’s have a wee look at the evolution of the cheesiest, most dreaded conversation starters since before and after the invention of cheese.

*************************

Moving on!!

If you survived this far, you might want to be sitting comfortably because as cringe worthy as the previous Pick Up Lines have been, these 18th century ones just might hit their intended target. What? Pickup lines that could actually work? Surely you jest!  Sometimes it’s not the Pick Up Line, but the person who says it…  You be the judge.

THE MATT ROBERTS has reached his 500th Tweet!

 Matt 500

That’s great and we are with you up to the Twitter end mate.  But don’t think you’re on easy Tweet just yet. Yes we’ve appreciated all those Tweet nothings you’ve whispered in our ears and we admit that those Pics of the Day have been right up our Tweet.

But if you could tweet 500 times, then you could tweet 500 more!

I don’t know about you but I just hate it when you go to put your cardigan on and accidentally punch someone in the face. I know, right?! We’ve all done it once or twice or maybe 3 or more times….Don’t judge me…. but that’s not the point!

F stands for FEET!

Grant O’Rourke was busy tweeting about his latest culinary escapade. As we all know, real men really do wear aprons and Grant is no exception. His recipe said that if you can’t get butter infused with the tears of Dutch Milk Maids, store bought would be perfectly fine. So far so good, but unfortunately it looked as though Grant’s efforts in trying to make ravioli from scratch may have gone a bit awry…

Earlier today, I stopped by Richard Clark’s Twitter page and saw this conversation between Himself and Maril Davis…..

It’s the biggest understatement of the decade.

It’s like calling a breathtaking view, “Quite Nice”!

Describing the Great Floods of 2014 as “a bit of a damp patch”!

And calling the Atlantic ocean, “The Pond”!

And it’s Goodnight from across the Pond!

Thanks for stopping by! And I leave you with Ronald D Moore’s acting debut on an episode of Portlandia. Watch it to the end, I promise it will be worth the wait! ENJOY!

THAT’S ALL FOLKS!

An Englishman, Scotsman and an Irishman walk into a bar…

Are we there yet?

I hope everyone had a great St Patrick’s day on Monday but I’m not sure Pub Crawling was what St Patrick had in mind to celebrate his special day. Legend has it that he drove all the snakes out of Ireland. He must have had the patience of a Saint because throughout the journey, the snakes kept asking, “Are we there yet?” Who’d have thought that snakes are a lot like children on road trips!

At the end of the journey, St Patrick needed a HUGE pint of Guinness!

Anyway, Outlanders were tweeting all sorts about St Patrick’s day, so I stopped by some Twitter feeds to see what was occurring.

Our very own Irish Lass Caitriona Balfe had something to say on the subject.

@TheRealADSO @Writer_DG @Heughan Adso, hate to do this BUT it ain’t St Patty’s day .., if you abbreviate it, it is St Paddy’s. sowwy xxx”

Of which Sam Tweeted

@caitrionambalfe @TheRealADSO @Writer_DG adso, The Irish will be too drunk to notice anyway… #stpattys (Balfe included)”

Of which ADSO replied

Geez!  I’m hoping that Siri was able to understand everyone’s Slurred requests for bar locations and taxis. After several pints of Guinness, one Outlander asked Siri this.

“Siri, what are you wearing?”

Siri replied, “Aluminosilicate glass and Stainless steel, Nice huh?”

Later on in the evening, the unnamed Outlander was found in the corner, with a leprechaun hat on, mistakenly thinking that he was farting rainbows and making out with his phone.

When we asked Siri about the incident she replied. “I have no comment.”

Sure you don’t you saucy minx!

When this picture was tweeted, everyone was wondering who the slate guy was. Now, I don’t know about you but I was actually wondering  what was going through Cait’s mind. It appears as through she was pondering something very deep.

2014-03-18 14.00.33

Grant O’Rourke has been tweeting this week. Seems as though his other half Kiera Docherty gave him a special gift in order to bring his Animal Magnetism to a new level.  Let’s have a lookie, shall we?

Grant tweeted that it smelled like “wrestling a canadian bear whilst smoking a pipe soaked in brandy”. Well, since Grant’s awesomeness has been seen escaping through his face lately, it’s only right to keep it in tip top shape. After one application of the stuff Grant tweeted this photo.

Where the Wild Things Are

Let the wild rumpus begin!

Looks as though some Scottish wild life were determined to hamper this weeks filming as evidenced by this tweet by director Richard Clark.

“Mud and swans. Neither proving helpful.”

I would have thought that they were too busy swanning about to stick their beaks in. They look so beautiful and elegant paddling around but don’t let them fool you, cause they’re just giant ducks on Quack! And apparently, the shoot was liken to something out of Swan of the Dead.

Here’s some photos taken on the day.

Earlier in the week THE Matt Roberts tweeted this picture of a tree. But not just any tree, a lion tree. Looks pretty spooky to me. I don’t know about you but I think it’s difficult to see it. Maril Davis tweeted that it looked like a Hyena. Let’s just hope it’s laughing.

She’s just misunderstood? That’s like saying Godzilla was just a harmless lizard who helped rebuild a city, saved many people and moon walked back into the sea. Oh… but that’s only if you watch it backwards!  If I was a betting kind of gal, I know who I’d put my money on.

In the 18th century game you could spell things any way you want because the dictionary wasn’t written till 1755. I wonder, if the word has innuendo, do they get a double word score? I hope it doesn’t cause too many problems. Keep Calm guys!  it’s all fun and games till someone loses an i.

That’s All Folks!!

Things That Go Thump in the Night!

Shhhh!  Did you hear that?

I don’t know about you but I think that the night can be really creepy sometimes.  Do you ever think about monsters during the day? And why when you hear a noise in the middle of the night, you say, “hello?”. Do you expect the goulie to say something like, “I’m in the kitchen, would you like a cup of tea?”. Well apparently there have been some strange things happening whilst Outlander has been filming at night.  OOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooo!

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go THUMP* in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

*I know it’s supposed to be BUMP but just go with it.

I took a moment to stop by some Twitter feeds and there was certainly talk of the thumping kind. Richard Clark had this to say.

“There’s so much thumpity thump some of it must have been filmed. Surely?”

And Sam popped in and tweeted this:

“Double Thump”

This can only mean one thing, that I haven’t got a clue what they are on about! Anyway, it could be something else besides those pesky ghosties and ghoulies because word has it that there’s a pretty cool Bromance happening on set this week. Articulated by some very manly sports guy fist thumps and chest bumps.

Love hearts

Awwwwww! Aren’t they cute!

Newsflash!! The sun came out in Scotland!

Caitriona Balfe tweeted this selfie with Unit Driver Andrew Finnie

Finnie and Caitriona

Get out your sun screen and your sun glasses. It’s a scorcher! Oh….. maybe not because a little later Sam sent this Tweet.

“Sunshine and snow”

Sounds like good Scottish weather to me!  Scotland, where the seasons just don’t matter!

Late Thursday, night Sam came on Twitter with a Crisis. Here’s what he said.

“Oh NO!!!!!!  No whisky in the house. Dammit. #Mass Panic”

Whisky, Tango, Foxtrot! That is definitely a panic fueled situation. Here’s something that every Scotsman needs for their disaster recovery box.

And if I’m not mistaken, isn’t McDonalds open 24 hours and I’m pretty sure in Scotland you can super size your McWhisky?

Despite the Whisky Crisis of Thursday night, Sam was back on Twitter the next day and celebrating because it’s FRIDAY! Here’s what he had to say.

“TFIF!!!”

Which translates to, “Hey Friday, you sexy Bitch! I’ve been looking for you all week!”

And last but not least, we need to say a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Tobias Menzies! Lordy Lordy he’s turned 40! And in honour of his 40th birthday, Marg Davidson made this rather scary birthday cake.

jamie cake

Remember, Cake is for life and not just for Birthdays! And a balanced diet means there’s a piece of cake in each hand! Get Chomping!

And that’s all Folks!

Say Cheese!

Graters Gonna Grate! On a nice quiet Thursday evening, I was sitting here with the dogs snoozing and snoring. The dogs were snoring, NOT ME! Anyway, then suddenly Grant O’Rourkefort unleashed the flying monkeys or more like Curds of Prey when he should have just Let it Brie…. let it Brie…. sorry….. by sending this tweet:

“I bought so much cheese today that if a tabloid newspaper did a story on it they would describe it as a “spree” or a “rampage”.”

He must have bought a Tunworth! It was then that the Twitter thread descended into cheese puns liken to a French cheese factory exploding and de Brie falling everywhere. It was not Gouda and it would have made Little Miss Muffet cringe!  And as you know I’ve never been known to Brie-ze past a pun! Grant then tweeted:

“What is it about cheese (and to a similar extent eggs) that immediately turns people into free firing punsters?”

It wasn’t long before Heughan made a appearance:

“Can’t see what the big YOLK is….”

He’s such a Crack Up!

Hello? is it Brie you’re looking for?  Apparently cheese jokes were the Whey forward. Just when the tweet spiralled out of control, Kiera Docherty stepped in to save the day and Nailed It!

“CHEESES H ROOSEVELT CHRIST!”

You are the Queen! We’re not worthy!

Speaking of Grant and Kiera, please take time to go to their donation page and show them some BIG OUTLANDER LOVE by donating to their Kilt Walk team. They will be walking 26 miles in aid of Scottish Children’s Charities. Embedded image permalink

Now, let’s talk Puppies and Punctuation!  Why, you say? Because a misplaced modifier can suddenly make you a comedian, but improper use of commas can make you look like a psycho! Let me demonstrate.

“I like cooking my family and pets”

and

“Let’s eat grandpa!”

Remember people, proper punctuation saves lives!  which brings me to this Tweet and photo from the lovely Terry.

“Let’s go make costumes and eat people!!”

Embedded image permalink

HUH??? Stop the Presses! Is this a comma drama?

When questioned about the supposed missing comma, Terry told us that the sentence was indeed correct.  But he’s too cute to eat people! Seems as though Cuilean has been working on a horror film of his own! Nightmare at Lallybroch. Word has it that the little tike has teeth even Jaws would be proud of. Meanwhile, signs like these have been going up all over the costume department.

It’s Been a Hard Days Night

Help me make it through the night

That seems to be the overriding theme for this week’s Outlander shoot. After a few days of night filming, things are starting to take their toll.

I stopped by Richard Clark’s Twitter feed to see how things were going, here’s what he had to say.

“Just spent 30mins searching for missing sock. Found it. One same foot as the other one. Night shoots clearly taking their toll.”

Good thing you found the missing sock, sadly many missing sock scenarios don’t have happy endings. You put them in the washing machine, (always using the Buddy System), and voila’ they come out single. But where do the missing socks go? I’ve found the answer.

WOW!  I bet you didn’t know they went to Narnia, did you? Your washing machine is a portal to a magical world.

That’s good to know, I personally thought it was one footed aliens who teleported themselves down to earth from their Giant spaceship, hovering just out of the earth’s atmosphere. They only steal one sock because, well… they only have one foot. I think I like the Narnia theory better!  I mean aliens? Who would believe that one? Right?

socks funnies

Still there are a lot of socks out there, lonely and looking for a mate.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

No, No and No! There’s still so  much more work to do!

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

When I stopped by Sam’s twitter feed there was some very Witty Banter going on between Himself and Richard Clark. You’ve got to love the both of them!  In the midst of sleep deprivation and a very hectic shooting schedule, they still find  time to tweet to their fans. Here’s what they had to say:

Sam: Think it may be time for BUCKETS of caffeine… Or maybe a bath of it.

Richard Clark : @Heughan So long as it doesn’t result in some crazed, jittery performance.

Did the earth move or was it just our Sam on a caffeine buzz?  Will have to wait till the series airs to make that call 🙂  And be careful with the procaffeinating, too much and you start to see noises!!

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Later on in the evening Unit Driver Dave posted this pic of himself freezing in the van. I wonder if he was quaking like the last Krispy Kreme donut in the Drivers Breakroom!

“Great fun on night shoot. An orange wine-gum got me through a slump at 2am. Crew were solid!”

Oh dear!  I hope he didn’t break a tooth on that frozen wine gum! And what’s this about the crew being solid? Frozen Solid? Hope they’re thawing out this morning.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

 That doesn’t seem to be working very well.  Maybe you should go stand in the corner because I hear it’s 90 degrees there. See…

Oh dear!! I almost forgot the tweet from Richard Clark this morning….

“Went for a run. By mistake. Might still have been asleep. #Nightshoot #Outlander

Oh No!  You must never run in your sleep! I can be very dangerous as demonstrated by this snoozing K9

This is just a little taster!  Stay tuned for more. I promise next Roundup it will be much warmer. Beach warm!
