Just a notice to say my journal is friends only, if you want to be added then comment here - however I tend to only friend people I at least know of or share some interests with, because if anyone is here for fandom stuffs those posts are all public anyway for general enjoyment by anyone who strays here... This is also so my friends list doesn't get absurdly big, so hopefully any lack of me friending people won't offend anyone. :)

Still if you want to be added, then do say something and I'm not adverse to others friending me if they like.

Been meaning to do this post for about a month...oops. Anyhow, I really enjoyed taking part in Festivids this year - the collection for it is over here.

I made a Hackers (1995) vid "Dial Me Up" for bingeling - it's short but snappy 1.30 mins since it's for one of the less featured characters in the film, Ramon "Phantom Phreak" Sanchez. He's not in the final third of the film sadly but he gets some great lines and is a very stylish individual too.

I also had the gift of a Legion (TV) vid "No Maker Made Me" made for me by caramarie, which is a very creepy vid, exactly fitting for the mindfuck that is Legion and the direction S2 went in. Warning for big end of S2 spoilers in it and probably won't make any sense if you've not seen the show.

Onto more recs. Read more... )

Okay, saw the this done by a few people I know and thought yeah I want to do that... and then failed at doing it for most of two months but hey-ho, here it is. I saw a few different versions of this and have smushed them together into one.

General fic stats for 2018

This was harder than it should be to do because I reposted a load of fics on Ao3 last year and so had to compile this manually to not include those. Still got more to shift over from FF.net too at some point.

Word count on AO3: 107,474 words
Average Words Per Story: 3256
Number of fics on AO3: 33 (also 8 fanmixes and 2 moodboards)
Fandoms written for: The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Fringe, BBC Sherlock, Altered Carbon, Primeval, Once Upon A Time, Teen Wolf, Dirty Sexy Money – also Arrow for a fanmix.
Total Words Written: actually more than what's posted, I think twice that. I'm gonna try to keep track of both in 2019.

The other weekend I went on a punting/walking ghost tour in my city Cambridge UK and I've decided to post a virtual tour based on that, on the most suitable day of the year, Halloween. So join me on the inky black waters of the Cam and beyond...

Earlier in the week I got a bit incensed at a Tesco Clothing newsletter. Why? Because they had gaming tshirts advertised with the slogan "Boys to men...The whole family will love these" which I felt was rather thoughtless because the whole family can't enjoy considering they only stock boys/mens tshirts. Now I'm all for ignoring categories of clothing, but wearing men's tshirts can be tricky if they're tightfit and you have an ample busom so just buying the mens ones isn't exactly a great solution in all cases. More to the point I generally felt alienated by that slogan too, so I wrote to Tesco to complain that I felt it was excluding female gamers with that style of slogan when it could just as well have had a unisex and unoffensive slogan.

I actually got a fairly decent and quick reply, though the gist of which was that the slogn was because it was only men/boys tshirts and the lack fo female game tshirts was probably one of two things.

1) they didn't think they'd sell
2) the stockists don't make them

Regardless of which is the case I got told that they'd pass on my request to the buying team and that any other female gamers who wanted there to be more gaming tshirts could similarly contact Tesco's to say they would like to see them, as if there was enough demand proven then they might starting looking to stock them.

So if you're a female gamer in the UK, or know of one who might be interested in this, and you want more gaming tshirts at Tescos the email to politely poke them about this matter is: customer.service AT tesco.co.uk

Help fund a new Terry Pratchett-based film, Trollbridge. Currently the Australian (whoo!) production company is taking pledges to see if they can raise enough to make it a reality after 8 years trying.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/snowgumfilms/terry-pratchetts-troll-bridge

Currently they're at $34,691 pledged of $45,000 goal, with 61 days to go. So it's looking good but don't let that stop you and if you can't help fund directly you can still help greatly by spreading the word.

This is me, pimping out a new exchange going on at [livejournal.com profile] bb_and_ww because I know out of all of my flist there's a fair number who have preference for the ignored, disliked and misunderstood characters, not to mention aliens and other beings. Please pimp this out if you think anyone else you know would like it too.

First ten to comment get a short fic of their choosing (as long as I know who the characters you want are and feel capable of writing them). In exchange, you have to post something similar (offering fics or sketches or what have you) in your journal.

It will probably be a small blurb of "comment-fic" as a reply...unless of course, I get carried away.

That frakking annoying PS3 problem I had - solved! I could glomp the user of this post, I already sent them a very big thank you PM as this solution is nowhere to be found on the general internetz and the code 8001002A is not even on the Sony FAQs let alone the solution. Bad Sony but go Sony forum users, you can be so awesome!

For anyone still interested A) mckay and/or weir from SGA and B) in some festive fannish challenge I pimp this challenge out to you.

If anyone likes the idea of fic for the misguided, disliked, ambigious, evil and alien characters then you've got just about 5 days left to submit prompts. As many as you like, no obligation to write too. The submission ends when the 5th of August has ended everywhere in the world.

Come on over to [livejournal.com profile] bb_and_ww and give those characters some lovely prompts! :D

Please pimp this out if you know any one with any love of those kind of characters - it's multifandom after all and more prompts the merrier.

This was probably long overdue as I've never really done one, but now, there you go, it is done finally.

If you're cut, it wasn't personal, I'm just having a declutter; I mainly cut people for combinations of these reasons.
a) they fell off the face of lj/rarely update
b) we don't have anything in common anymore
c) we don't know each other well enough/don't talk anymore

If you think you got mistakenly cut - which isn't impossible if I managed to be oblivious to a username change - then please comment here.

Telltale Games is 5 years old! So I got given a coupon to share, valid for 10 more days roughly. Get episodes for $5, instead of the usual $9 + for every person that uses it I also get $1 credit. :D

Seems nifty if anyone already has an interest in their games and wants to try an episode or two out on the cheap.

Also for fellow Monkey Island fans I recommend this post by Ron Gilbert looking back on the making of the original game.
