Obsessing On...*3* - Britain

 'Obsessing On...' is a Lunar Rainbows' original feature.  Every month I pay homage to a different thing that brings out my inner-geek to the max!  It can be from books, televisions, movies or whatever other kind of media - if it makes me fan-girl hardcore, it'll end up here.

In this edition, I profess my unnatural and probably unhealthy love for all the British things!!

British Flag
I've come to realize over the past few years, that Britain Rocks.  Is there anything sexier than a British accent?  No, there is not.  Plus these people love to drink tea AND it rains there...a lot!  I can't think of a place I'd rather snuggle up with a nice cup of tea and a good book!  Add that to all the magic that seems to sprout out around there, the awesome bands and amazing actors that hail from the U.K and you have yourself a party!  That's not even starting on all the touristic places I'm like, dying to see first hand!  Eeeek, ok so let's get started here will all the fan-girling:

** Epic British Writers; J.K. Rowling, J.R.R.Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Frances, Hodgeson Burnett, Shakespeare, Charles Dickens,  Jane Austen, Agatha Christie...

**Enchanted Book Worlds Located (or Hidden) in England: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Sherlock, The Secret Garden, Narnia...

Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogwarts ~ The Tenth Doctor & his TARDIS ~ Sherlock (The Series)

Narnia                       ~                   Underland

**British Musicians or Bands that ROCK: Muse, Radiohead, The Beatles - especially Lennon ♥, Coldplay (yeah! I like Coldplay! *puts hands on hip & arms self with best mean face), Mumford & Sons, Oasis, Queen, The Rolling Stones & Elton John - to name a few!

**English Actors that bring it: Christian Bale (the Dark Knight), Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Ian McKellan, Helena Bonham-Carter, Benedict Cumberbatch, Henry Cavill (Man of Steel)...Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Alan Rickman, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, David Thewlis - oh hell, pretty much the entire Harry Potter film cast, there! - Martin Freeman, Judy Dench, Kate Winslet, Micheal Cane, Christopher Lee, Anthony Hopkins...*splutter* *gasp*

                  Christian Bale               Tom Hardy               Gary Oldman             Ian McKellen       Helena Bonham-Carter

**Especially dreamy & drool-worthy British Actors -  Christian Bale, Tom Hardy Henry Cavill, Robert Pattinson, Orlando Bloom...YUM.
British Love
**I am certainly not forgetting the actual real-world sites there are to see in London : The London Eye, Stonehenge, Big Ben, The Tower Bridge, Natural History Museum, Westminster Abbey, BBC Studio...and then all the Harry Potter related sites like the Harry Potter Studio, King's Cross Station and those Red Telephone Boxes!!

oops *ahem* what's that TARDIS doing here?!

The only question remaining is: when can I move to the U.K. ?!
Do you guys share my love for all the British Things?!
Did I miss anyone/anything/anyplace important? Let me know below!!

  1. We so have this obsession in common! If I ever move to another country, it's going to be England. I couldn't agree with you more about the accent! I could listen to any actor from the HP cast read the ingredients off the back of a cereal box and be in heaven. The same goes for Richard Armitage- he's #1 on my list of dreamy and drool-worthy British actors.

  2. Oh, I'm so with you, definitely!! I've been a massive Britain-lover (Britainophile?) for quite a long time. I've always had just an inherent interest with all things British - books, movies, TV shows, music, everything! The past I-don't-know-how-many TV shows I've watched off Netflix recently have all been British, actually (love Skins, QI, Little Britain, The Inbetweeners, Misfits... still need to watch Sherlock!). And of course, my biggest dream and obsession would simply be just to see it myself someday! There are so many sites that I would DIE to see! Someday!!
