Yuri on Ice Fic Recs 3 [Mar. 27th, 2017|04:20 pm]

So it's been a while since I've done a recs update, which probably reflects the fact that I am no longer reading at quite the ridiculously voracious speed I was (and I'm checking the tag ~once a week instead of a couple of times a day). Here's everything I've loved since the last rec list I did (excepting of course current in-progress podfic projects, and the podfic I've already posted all of which should be considered as a 'omg rec!' for each of those fics).

You can find my first YOI fic recs list (~20 other fics) here, and my 2nd rec list here (~25 fics).

Recs! )

Well, I'm at home right now. My car, however, is still at work. It's been one of those days. :-/

For something like four years now, my car does this odd thing where from time to time it just... won't start properly. The radio turns on. The AC turns on. The light turns on. But the engine itself doesn't actually turn on. If I leave it alone for 5-10 minutes, it will usually start working on its own, but once in a blue moon it takes an hour or two of ignoring it before the problem resolves itself.

Today was apparently one of those rare times where it takes forever to start working again. At least, that's what I'm hoping. If it's still not working tomorrow, then the panic will start gaining a foothold.

When it pulls a stunt like this, jump starting the car doesn't actually fix the problem because it's not actually the battery that's the issue. Since my only other option was hanging around the parking lot for an hour or two and hoping it eventually started (which I didn't particularly want to do), one of my coworkers gave me a ride home. It's usually not an issue to leave a car in the parking lot overnight (not unless it's there for several nights in a row, at least), so she's going to pick me up in the morning and give me a ride back tomorrow in the hope that it will be working again by then.

My fingers are very much crossed that it's the same issue as always and the car starts normally tomorrow. It's been ages since it didn't turn on properly after 5-10 minutes, though, so I can't help but be a bit worried. If it doesn't work tomorrow, well, then I can start panicking about trying to raise money for even more car bills.

Happy Monday?

I finished watching Iron Fist. Well, mostly. I was bored through good stretches of it and I definitely didn't have my whole attention on the last few episodes. Um... it's not very good? At all?

Colleen Wing is the only good part of the show. Why couldn't they give us the Colleen Wing show?

Danny Rand is terrible. And he's terrible in specific ways that I particularly hate. It reminded me of my frustration with Sarah Connor in The Sarah Connor Chronicles, where she makes tactical mistakes that a character like Sarah shouldn't make, and you're not clear if it's because of sloppy writing or if it's a deliberate character decision that you don't agree with. But for example:

Having been believed dead for fifteen years along with his billionaire parents, Danny Rand shows up back in New York. He enters the corporate headquarters of the company his father ran, and asks for a meeting with his father's business partner, which is denied. Whereupon any sane adult would, you know, ask to schedule an appointment later, but Danny instead beats up the security guard and sneaks up to the executive suite. He learns that his father's business partner is now dead and that the business partner's children now run the company, but they don't believe that he is really Danny, since Danny is dead, and they have security escort him from the building. Whereupon any sane adult would, you know, get a lawyer and start the process of belatedly probating their parents' estate. Or if they don't know that much about how corporations work, get advice from someone they trust... who would tell them to get a lawyer and start probating their parents' estate. What does Danny do? Danny spends the next several days stalking the company's new executives and harassing them. Yes, that is what Danny Rand does. It takes three episodes for Danny to accidentally get a lawyer- within a day in story time of doing so, he is restored to his shares of the company. Those three episodes without a lawyer are so fucking infuriatingly unnecessary. GET A FUCKING LAWYER, DANNY. IT'S WHAT GROWN-UPS DO.

The story logic behind Danny's stupidity seems to be that he was taken from his New York life at age 10 and raised in a mystical woo-woo orientalist comic book warrior monastery in the Himalayas. He doesn't know how corporations work, he doesn't know how New York society works, and he therefore just runs around and breaks things like a kid in a room full of breakable things. But this is a really dumb and uninteresting characterization- ostensibly he spent fifteen years being trained into a finely honed and disciplined weapon by experienced warriors- none of that discipline, none of the patience or combat intuition you'd expect from such training ever surfaces in his characterization. Why should I root for Danny Rand to triumph? Why should I even root for him to learn when he's apparently squandered fifteen years of teaching?

Awakenings [Mar. 27th, 2017|09:25 pm]

raven

[xpost |http://loneraven.livejournal.com/803488.html]

I am rereading Awakenings, the Oliver Sacks book about encephalitis lethargica and L-DOPA. I first came across the story as a teenager and predictably found it completely fascinating. But I bounced off the book a bit the first time, probably because I was too young for it and also it has a lot of quite boring prefaces. But this time I found it entirely compelling, prefaces and all, and have been talking about it quite a bit, so here we are.

The story in brief, for those who don't know it (and also to give me an excuse to tell it again): after the First World War, there was a worldwide outbreak of Spanish flu, which killed more people than the war did, but has mostly been forgotten. And following that - and yet more forgotten - was an epidemic of an illness later called encephalitis lethargica, also called sleepy-sickness. It was prevalent between about 1918 and 1928, and has never really been seen since (beyond isolated cases). People who got it tended to fall asleep - for weeks or months. And then, when they woke up, they were changed in some deep, indefinable way: neither asleep nor awake, but something in between. They sat motionless in chairs and stared into space. They could be "posed", their arms outstretched, like living statues. They couldn't be woken, and some of them didn't appear even to age - so forty years later some had been frozen in place for decades, still looking largely as they had in the late 1920s when initially struck down by the disease.

In 1969, the neurologist Oliver Sacks - who was one of the few clinicians with responsibility for a large number of post-encephalitic patients, about forty of them, in a hospital in New York - hit upon the idea of giving them L-DOPA, which at the time was a brand-new drug. (It's a chemical precursor to dopamine that can pass through the blood-brain barrier.) So without a great deal of knowledge of what would happen, but that something would, he started giving L-DOPA to these patients who had been out of the world for four decades.

And they woke up. This is the amazing part of the story, and Sacks writes about it like a dream: this glorious New York summer, in which these people not only woke up, and spoke, and moved, but became the people they had been. Sacks mentions one patient who had been a flapper, and the nurses going to the NYPL to look up the people and places she spoke about. He mentions another who had been a young Jewish emigrée from Vienna in the 1920s, and startled the staff because they had never known it until she spoke with an Austrian accent, and asked for a rabbi. It's just incredible to read about. And heartbreaking too, because L-DOPA turns out not to be quite the miracle that it promises. There's a honeymoon period, where Sacks and his colleagues are convinced it's just teething problems and they'll figure it out - and then the realisation that they can't stop the effect of the drug wearing off with time, or giving the patients side-effects that are too much to bear. So while some of the patients stay "awakened", others slip back into their pre-L-DOPA state, or into a coma this time. It's tragic and has an awful inevitable feel but it doesn't take on the feel of a Greek tragedy - you never lose sight of these people as real, individual human beings, not archetypes or fairy tales. I am not always convinced by Sacks' theoretical approaches, which draw a lot more from straight philosophy than I'm accustomed to seeing in a book that also purports to examine the scientific method. And it's also a book of its time and place, and a medicalised book - it doesn't always shine in a good light when considered through the lens of disability activism and theory - but Sacks is always interesting, always humane, and always interested in individuals and their stories.

The coda to this is that I hadn't really gathered, the first time I read this book, that Sacks was queer (although I was reminded of his lifelong friendship with WH Auden, which is the kind of historical congruence I love). And then [personal profile] happydork linked me to this beautiful article: My Life With Oliver Sacks, by Bill Hayes, who was Sacks' partner at the time of his death. It's one of the loveliest things I've read in ages - a snapshot of queer work, a queer life, as well as a love letter and obituary. I adore it. i've been rereading a lot of formative things just recently - all the best-beloveds of teenage crazies, so The Bell Jar and Prozac Nation - but also Slaughterhouse Five, Gender Outlaws, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, and Wild Dreams of a New Beginning. (The last of which because I read a poem: Lawrence Ferlinghetti Is Still Alive.)

I feel like there ought to be some sort of conclusion to this thought, something about my foundering mental health, but actually I think it's just, there are always books, and that precious kinship of inquiring queers.

Penultimate Black Sails [Mar. 27th, 2017|11:39 am]

This season has brought many things, referenced many things. It's had some of the most gorgeous cinematography of the series, and that's saying something.

But whatever else this season has done, it's kept to its central theme: whenever men have a chance, they will sit around and talk about their feelings. :-)

Also, that my theory that the series itself is (Doylian hat firmly in place) about storytelling, and how stories we tell take on lives of their own. Once a story is told it is no longer in the teller's control, and if that story is about who the teller is...

Really, it's to be expected, right, when you base an entire series around one of the biggest bullshitters in literature.

If the entire series is about that, though, then this episode if the ultimate culmination of it.

Cut for comments, both Doylian and Watsonian, on XXXVII )

Witcher 3 fic: The Mark of the Year (f/f) [Mar. 27th, 2017|09:15 am]

isis
[Tags|]
[xpost |http://isiscolo.livejournal.com/632157.html]

I wrote something! Actually this is the first thing I have written in a year that wasn't written for a fic exchange, if you count polishing and posting a longfic that I had mostly written the previous year as "writing". And it's in a fandom I don't think any of you are in, but I'm going to link it here anyway:

The Mark of the Year (3801 words) by Isis
Fandom: Wiedźmin | The Witcher (Video Game)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon/Astrid (The Witcher)
Characters: Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon, Astrid (The Witcher)
Additional Tags: Post-Canon, Witcher!Ciri, References to game events, Sauna
Summary: One year after burying Skjall and facing the Wild Hunt, Ciri returns to Lofoten.

This story came about entirely because there is a scene in the game involving Ciri going to a sauna. (In this game, the player usually controls Geralt, the titular Witcher, but there are quests in which the player character is Ciri, Geralt's sort-of-adopted-daughter who he spends the first part of the game searching for.) Astrid, whose brother has a crush on Ciri, asks Ciri if she likes him; one possible player response is, "To be honest, I prefer women." But if you choose this response (and I did!) nothing racy happens, alas, which is sort of surprising because Geralt has several romantic scenes (or at least the possibility of them). SO I HAD TO WRITE SOMETHING.

(Not that this fic makes sense without knowing the game, or that I expect anyone on my flist to read it, just that I wanted to tell the story of why I wrote it!)

I need refills on all my drugs, but I'm tired of dealing with my current pharmacy. Their logistical skills, which have always been sub-par, have lately gone in the toilet.

Last time I went to get refills they told me the wait would be an hour. It used to be 45 minutes, but an hour is fine too, time to go get dinner and come back. I get back and get told not yet, 20 more minutes. So I wait, and go up to the counter again and get told 30 more minutes and I say screw it I'll pick it up tomorrow.

My pharmacy before that one no longer exists. (RIP Target pharmacy bottles.)

I transferred all the scripts to another pharmacy, closer to my house. It was relatively trouble free, so far. But the one thing I can trust my current pharmacy on is complete disinterest in my drugs; very few pharmacies are quite so nonjudgemental.

There's also the one script I never bothered to get the prior auth approved for. That self pay price has ballooned from $40 to $600. I'm not even sure I want to take that one anymore; maybe I'll just get surgery and be done with it.

The drugs only change when the doc changes. They all want me on them indefinitely, forever. But no 10 year supply, nope, docs love a short leash.

The first unit nurse I ever had called our medication 'drugs'. I was 12, the rest of the kids not much older. We loved it. The tshirt that had the Olympic rings made out of colored condoms didn't hurt, too.

[xpost |http://hafital.livejournal.com/275136.html]

So much to type about, so little brain.

This is what I've been doing:

1. I watched all of season 1 of Westworld and have decided not to continue with it. As a friend of mine said when i mentioned I just watched it and that I didn't think I would bother with season 2, it's too "rapey." That, and I pretty much actively hate every human and I'm not that fond of the robots either, so when I'm rooting for everyone to die I'm pretty sure that's time for me to bail.

2. In my infinite wisdom I decided to pick up Friday Night Lights again. I'd only seen season 1 back when it aired, and never continued. This was because of reasons, some to do with the show but mostly because life was very life at that time and I can pretty much pin point my break up with appointment television to that period. Anyway, a friend had just watched it all on Netflix, and I had always intended to watch it anyway, and I heard it was good, so I was like, okay, I think I'm ready. And I started watching it again and all through rewatching season 1 I was like, OMG this show is soooo goood why did I ever stop watching it whhhyyyy I love everyone on this show so much. And then I started watching season 2 and I was like.... OH RIGHT THIS IS WHY. Hah. No no, not because season 2 was uneven or anything but because I love these characters so much that watching them hurt even a little bit, emotionally or physically, makes me very anxious. Let's just say when I roll my eyes at the MCU fandom for losing their collective heads over Bucky Barnes, just say Tim Riggins to me and I'll shut up.

3. The kittens over at The Librarians are all very kittenish and that show is too darn adorable.

4. Life got out of hand this month so I haven't seen Logan yet. Nor Iron Fist, which I do plan on watching even though everyone and their grandmother says it's terrible.

5. Even though I saw the movie The Martian in theatres, and I had a copy for ages and watched it at least a few times since then, I suddenly had a desire to read fan fiction for it the other day. Specifically, I wanted Watney/Mitch Henderson (don't ask me why) but there's NOTHING in that pairing. I am so disappointed in fandom right now. BUT I did read a bunch of lovely fic in various pairings and threesomes, and some group Ares fic. I've bookmarked a handful that I liked, and I'm still poking my way through the stories on AO3 (surprise surprise there's not a lot) but I have a fic rec for anyone even remotely interested.

All This Could Be Yours, by mardia (Lewis/Watney) -- Both Commander Lewis and Mark Watney are stranded on Mars together.

It's not even remotely a popular pairing, but I adored this story. In such a small fandom, one starts to read everything, and I was not sorry to give this one a try. It's the first in a series, but the other 2 stories are more companion pieces. Not sure I've read another story, fanfic or professional, that truly delves into real intimacy between 2 people as well as this one, imo.

I wrote a fic! (and also have Call the Midwife thoughts) [Mar. 25th, 2017|07:08 pm]

[xpost |http://pellucid.livejournal.com/422106.html]

Really, nothing but Call the Midwife thoughts, these days. [personal profile] gabolange and I talked on the phone last weekend for over two hours, and probably an hour and 45 minutes of that was CtM. It's nutso. Active fangirling! Who knew we still had it in us!

So season 6 has now concluded. And partly--thank god? This is the first show I've actively fangirled during a currently airing season in a looooong time, and it was stupidly stressful. I would say that Tumblr is the worst, but actually, I think the UK media tabloids are the actual worst, and then Tumblr just magnifies it. So much crazy sensationalized spoiler stuff leaked to the press so far in advance of the episodes!!! And if some intern at Radio Times didn't get fired at some point, there is no justice in the world.

If my feelings about the experience of watching in real time were largely negative, my feelings about the series itself were spoilers! )

Interestingly, I dealt with my feelings about the Turner plot by writing a story that jumped the queue of several things I'd already been working on, and isn't actually about my own feelings by the time it all got transformed, but it was therapeutic nonetheless. And, um, I wrote a fic. For real, with beta and all that jazz--first time in a very long time. It feels good!

In case anyone is interested: Over the Hills and Far Away, gen, Timothy and Shelagh on family and change, post 6.08.

And because this thing is totally a team endeavor, [personal profile] gabolange also just published a fic that does some season 6 fixing, and it's excellent: Mercy of the Fallen, four conversations that should have happened during 6.04 (Patrick and Timothy, Trixie and Tom, Delia and Shelagh, Shelagh and Patrick)

Of course, [personal profile] gabolange has also been writing me the season 2 Sister Bernadette and Doctor Turner are sneaking around AU, first two parts here and here. In case I'm not the only one who needs really hot and slightly OOC nun sex fic in their lives.

Iron Fist, meditation, bookmarks, and misc TV/movies [Mar. 25th, 2017|10:01 am]

destina
[Tags|, , , , ]

I was hanging out with other fans this past weekend and one of them pointed out to me that I don't post much anymore. I guess that's probably true. I should try to change that! Here we go.

- After five years of trying and failing to learn to meditate (there's a anxious hamster in my head and it WILL NOT STOP SQUEAKING), I found an app that's extremely helpful. It's called Calm. I mention this in case any of you are similarly afflicted. You can unlock the full app with a subscription, but there are features you can use without that. I regularly make use of the guided meditations and the sleep stories. Yes! Droning bedtime stories meant to knock you out! They work pretty well. Last night I listened to a shipping report. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

- I went back to re-read some Bruce Wayne/Clark Kent fic I had bookmarked, and I'm very very amused by the notes I used so I could find them again. (There's a reason so few of my 1,760 bookmarks are public.) For instance:

* that one where Bruce is masochistic and Dick is fucking pissed
* ugh stupid men on a farm and domestic goodness
* the one with the swear jar that made me LOL
* so good! go back and slobber on the author later

- Speaking of DCU and/or Berlantiverse, how cute was The Flash/Supergirl musical ep??!! OMG. SO CUTE. And then you juxtapose that with Arrow, which...listen, I want a ton of Diggle/Oliver hurt/comfort fic right this instant, and it just isn't out there. It's the same for Steve/Sam and Tony/Rhodey, and it isn't right.

- Also re the DCU: behold our glorious Wonder Woman.

- I have a non-spoilery confession to make about Legion: I fast forward through about three quarters of every episode because...I just don't care. It's not because it's trippy and surreal; I can deal with that. See: Hannibal. But the reason Hannibal worked for me was my deep and abiding investment in the characters, all of whom were portrayed by tremendous actors. The same cannot be said of Legion. I don't care about the characters. But I did start to cut them some slack in chapter 7 for reasons I won't mention here. (If you're watching, you already know why.)

- Here is a quick rundown of why I think Iron Fist is terrible. I gave up 13 years hours of my life to form these opinions; I therefore feel entitled to share them with you now. Below the cut, spoilers. )

I'm going to leave you with an embed of this year's MIT admissions vid, which is basically a fan film of Riri Williams making her Iron Man suit, because I love it so. Somewhere out there, I think RDJ is applauding.

Isbjorn & Ibsen on the Beddinge in my office ("Beddinge" is the name of the type of Ikea couch/bed it is).

Couch has a red velvet cover (and red velvet pillows) and we also have red fleece blankets we put on it and the whole thing gets so furry you have no idea. Kevin just washed the blankets last week and the fuzz is already mighty.

The spot Isbjorn & Ibsen are snuggling on is where there's a heated cat pad under the fleece blanket. Toasty spot is toasty.

Sometimes they cuddle together in such a way it looks like we have one ridiculously large strange mutant Norwegian Forest Cat but here you can pretty much tell Isbjorn is sorta spooning Ibsen.

F/F regency romances I would like (and, who knows, might one day write) [Mar. 25th, 2017|04:12 pm]

I have been daydreaming about f/f regency romances.

I may plausibly one day write one of these, but then again I may not. And either way, please do borrow/steal/adopt if you are so inspired — the world needs all the f/f regency fluff it can get.

The one that is really just Pride & Prejudice fanfic

Edit: FRIENDS!!! THIS ACTUALLY EXISTS!!! ~60K OF MARY/ANNE FANFIC!! I haven't read it yet, but eeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!

Edit 2: I HAVE READ IT NOW IT'S AMAZING GO READ IT YAY!


Mary, the priggish, unlovely and unloved middle daughter of five, is packed off to be the next in a long line of particular companions to her cousin-by-marriage Anne. She hopes that by her strong moral example and deep interest in scripture, she can become an inspiration and a comfort to poor sickly, ill-tempered Anne.

Chronically ill and utterly fed up Anne just wants everyone to stop fussing about her, but at least this latest nuisance is amusing — not least because of how much she annoys Anne’s mother.

Out from the hustle and bustle of her busy family, Mary finds a place to grow into herself, and learns that humility and humour are not always at odds. To her great surprise, Anne finds someone who actually listens when she talks, and may even have something worth saying in return.


The one that’s a bit my favourite Georgette Heyer set up, but also very clearly not

Stately, proper Mrs Sophia Banks, recently widowed after a not too unhappy marriage to the well-respected Reverend Banks, has always been conscious that while Caesar’s wife must be above reproach, that is far too low a standard for the daughter of an English missionary and his Yoruba wife. Her own youngest daughter is about to make an advantageous match, but a visit from a distant cousin on Sophia’s mother’s side may throw everything out of order.

Iron-willed Dowager Lady Margaret is charmed and delighted by her only son’s fiancee, Charity, the beautiful and modest youngest daughter of the Reverend and Mrs Banks, but privately worries that she is perhaps too good a match for her much indulged son, who does, after all, resemble his late father a little more than one might like. When Charity’s distant cousin, a bright young girl not at all impressed by this cold and stupid country and its cold and stupid people, comes on the scene, Lady Margaret wonders if perhaps the mistakes of one generation will not be repeated on the next.

Sophia’s hopes for Charity seem to be in direct opposition to Lady Margaret’s privileged idealism, but could their wishes for a better future and shared amusement at the vagaries of youth help them find common ground?


The one that’s In Orbit but longer, set slightly earlier, and with a bit more plot. (If you haven’t already read In Orbit, my one bijou published bit of original fic, this kind of spoils for it. Go read In Orbit first. It’s very short, and I’m still very proud of it.)

Sarah, raised by her grandfather the golem-maker, has only ever wanted to take apart the sky to see how it works. When the time comes for her to marry and continue the line, she dutifully goes to meet her grandfather’s friend’s three sons — and his one daughter, Naomi. Unbeknownst to the oldest son, she begins a correspondence with one of his tutors under his name, positing ideas about the inner workings of golems that raise questions about the nature of the universe and the structure of stars.

Naomi, fascinated by the witty, driven woman one of her brothers is to marry, begins her own preparations for adulthood. She dreams of a loud family, of love and laughter and her own secret life away from them. She can never settle on anything — not an ambition, not a husband, not a direction for her life — until somehow, without her noticing or consenting, love finds her.

Will Sarah’s academic dreams be crushed when her identity is revealed? Will Naomi pick a path and follow it the whole way? And what do the golems think of all this, if they think at all?


The one that’s a country house mystery

Sweet, good-natured Modesty is quite sure she doesn’t have an enemy in the world. Her only flaw, if indeed she has one, is that she is perhaps a little too much of a credit to her name — despite a very proper settlement from her loving uncle and not unappealing features, she has been out for three years and failed to make a match. She prides herself on seeing the best in everyone, and finding fault in no one. But during a fortnight in her uncle’s country estate she may finally meet her match in the cruel and quick-tongued wife of the internationally famed detective Mr Ghatge. Surely this wicked, heathen woman would try the patience of a saint?

Baiza and Daulat are the perfect double act. She plays the self-important fool, he the quiet genius, and together they solve crime and seduce men and women across three continents. But when they are hired to protect the naive Modesty from an unknown threat, Baiza finds herself a little more invested and a little less objective than she might wish to be. What does Modesty know that she’s not telling them? Why is her uncle so insistent that she shouldn’t find out about the Ghatges’ investigation? And would it really be so wrong to mix a little business with pleasure?

In this week's little mood crest and fall: [Mar. 24th, 2017|10:05 pm]

My promotion actually went through at work! I have a modified title and a tiny raise. My supervisor had coached me to brace myself for nothing, given looming budget cuts across the whole organization, so even a little bit is a nice surprise; and while it's taken three and a half years to claw back up to what I was making at my last job, I still don't regret the move. Best of all, the upgrade doesn't involve doing much more than I'm doing now.

This news was especially welcome on the heels of a weekend where I learned that revisiting season one of BtVS + reading some BtVS fics + washing my hair for the first time since the temporary straightening and discovering that it looked like the worst perm I'd ever gotten back in high school = broody, self-recriminating fugue. Fascinating how a couple of days of rekindling a yearning to be Willow and to have an intense core friend group and mentor and whatnot could send me right back to a college-era headspace like that.

But it faded with a little socializing and a return to the work week. I went to an annual St. Patrick's Day concert with a couple of coworkers. This year's theme involved wandering back and forth through time, from the 1600s to contemporary pieces, tracing some of the threads of the evolution of Celtic music, song and dance. A wonderful local-ish musician, Keith Murphy, led a reinterpretation of the shape-note song Clamanda that I'd grown to love when Ann Leckie mentioned it in a discussion of the music she'd included in Ancillary Justice.

(And my hair is fine now. It just took two showers to get back to normal.)

*

And now today, a vidding zine that Lim has been working on for months has gone live! It's got essays on various aspects of vidding, close readings of vids, ruminations on vidding history, vidder profiles and interviews, stories about copyright appeals, and more, from 16 international contributors.

VIDELICET

*warning: the landing page is a still graphic, but when you click through to the article index pages you will get some animated gifs. details below

Lim asked me to write about the Mashup exhibit, so I expanded my Dreamwidth report from last year to include new stuff about, for example, wrestling with legal questions before accepting the invitation to have "Starships!" included, deciding whether to use my RL or fannish name, brief reflections one year on, and some graphics that tried to capture my general feeling of "OMG" from the months leading up to the gallery opening. The article also features write-ins from Kandy Fong, Lim and [personal profile] heresluck. You can check it out here.

I'm at a local conference this weekend and don't expect to be online much, but what I've seen so far has been fantastic -- dynamic design customized to each article, beyond the compelling subject matter -- and I'm looking forward to reading/watching the rest.

*The All Articles index has animated gifs, although the mobile version doesn't seem to. You can avoid them if you go to the About page, and the Contributors page links to the articles by author. At a glance, the Glitter and Gold essay had a flashy gif (and the History of Vidding essay had a subtler one) that the gif-sensitive might want to be warned about.

My piece was given an auto-playing background video in the "Screening Room" section, and there's a non-flashy gif in the slide show embedded in the "Sh*t Gets Real" section. Also FYI, the section headers font and a few pix are styled with deconstructed red and blue like you would see in 3D materials before you put the glasses on.

Vimeo removed my 'Shake It Out' Down to Agincourt vid because of a copyright claim from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.1 The version on YouTube one is still up (and not blocked anywhere).

What's particularly frustrating is that I can't message Vimeo staff about what the claim was regarding (you have to be following at least one person to message anyone. I'm now following a few people (including Vimeo Staff) but I still can't message anyone at this time for whatever reason). I think it's because of the song, but I want to be sure.

In happier news, I planted irises and the ACHA got pulled for lack of votes.



[1] as a side note, I think my videos have had a grand total of four hits since I uploaded the vid in question (I was mostly using the account as a backup of my stuff)

But here they are! It's a google doc, and feel free to add on in comments any stuff that I forgot/left out.

A new meme to get me posting [Mar. 23rd, 2017|06:01 pm]

[Tags|, ]

Favorite film(s) from each year since I was born. I'll do these five at a time, without apologies (see FAVORITES, not BEST), but also with the caveat that some of these became favorites MUCH later, while others were deeply entrenched parts of my childhood.

1972: Brother Sun, Sister Moon, which was a weirdly formative movie for me. It is, in large part, why my Confirmation name was Clare.

Honorable Mentions: 1776 (proto-slash for me), Sleuth (which is STILL brilliant)

1973: Disney's Robin Hood. Accept no imitations.
Honorable Mentions: The Exorcist, Jesus Christ Superstar (I saw the movie for the first time when I was very young, and spent years mostly with the image of everyone getting on the buses at the end and leaving the crosses behind and thinking it was a nightmare I had because it FUCKING CREEPED ME OUT! When I finally saw it again in around 12, I was STILL CREEPED OUT, but I at least knew I was not making up some hippy Christian killer cult in my head.)

1974: Young Frankenstein. I know, Blazing Saddles was the same year, but I admit that while I love parts of both, YF wins in my book. YMMV
Honorable Mentions: Herbie Rides Again
Not On This List: Zardoz, which scarred me for life. Possibly more than JCS.

1975: Monty Python and the Holy Grail. "Well you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!" (Where's a watery tart when you need one?)
Honorable Mentions: The Apple Dumpling Gang (because I was a sucker for live action Disney, and my crush on Bill Bixby would not be denied), Jaws, Tommy, Rooster Cogburn (Because Katherine Hepburn is awesome at all ages).

Super Honorable Mention: The first movie I actually have memories of seeing was this year, and it was the original King Kong. My dad, who worked briefly for RCA, was allowed to bring home a laser disc player from work, along with a disc of the original KK. I was 3, and it was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen. It still is.

1976: Silver Streak
Honorable Mentions: Freaky Friday (which I loved as a kid), Murder By Death (That's a hella cast for such a goofy movie. And Peter Falk steals it entirely.), Sebastiane (which is a trip of homoeroticism), The Shootist (Not to be watched if already depressed), The Slipper and the Rose (STILL my favorite Cinderella version, cheese-fest that it is)

1977: Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Honorable Mentions: Candleshoe, Dot and the Kangaroo (which probably looks horrid today, but I loved it back when), Pete's Dragon (Jim Dale was THE crush for me at one point of my childhood), The Rescuers.


Let's see if I can keep this up on a regular basis until I'm done.

1. Turns out my property taxes are, in fact, taken-care-of by the mortgaging institution and therefore not my problem.

2. My mother gave me the Hamiltome! I gave it to her last year for her birthday and she finally finished reading it and passed it along to me. I am so happy to have it and am reading it bit by bit.

3. I finally located the beeping smoke detector. (It was in the garage.) My house is no longer intermittently beeping.

4. I don't have to work tomorrow night, which is a rarity. I get the evening off!

5. I am watching the new Netflix reboot of Voltron with Zaphod, and am totally digging it. I think it's my favorite thing he's watched since Avatar. It's fun to have something that we actually both enjoy, to watch while we cuddle on the couch.

This is a fab resource for fic- and genre-writers, I believe.

At times they sounded like villains from a Michael Crichton novel. Russian scientists fight to save the earth from climate change by restoring the Pleistocene grasslands in the Siberian Arctic. This includes re-establishing herds of bison, musk oxen, wild horses -- and woolly mammoths. These Russians are bringing back the ice age to protect the future.

You might need to see this toad with a hat.

You might also need to see the art for this awesome mashup.

I received a tax bill today for property taxes for the place where I now live. I had been under the impression that I was paying property taxes into escrow and therefore would not get socked with such bills. I have emailed my banker, and am hoping like hell that it turns out this was in error / I don't have to deal with it. If I do have to deal with it, I will manage it somehow, but it would be a hefty hit to my finances.

I am proud of myself for not panicking; I'm pretty sure that at most other moments in my life this would have caused me to lose my cool.

I have, however, poured myself a glass of white wine. Because it is wine o'clock now.

In other household news, I did order myself a chest freezer, which should arrive by Friday. It is tiny (3.5 cubic feet, probably less than half the size of the one we used to have at the old place) but it will be useful, and I'm glad I ordered it before I found out about the possible tax bill.

And today I managed to remove the ugly wooden shutters from my kitchenette! I am already happier having them gone. (I am hoping that a friend with a power drill will help me hang a curtain rod there soon, whereupon I will have curtains, which will be both less ugly and less dusty than what was there before.)

[xpost |http://isiscolo.livejournal.com/631957.html]

What I've recently finished reading: Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik, audio version read by Andi Arndt. Despite taking its title (and cover image) from internet memes, this is not as slight a book as one might think. It's organized more thematically than chronologically, which is sometimes confusing, and also a little light on RBG's younger days, but considering that her ACLU work with the Women's Rights Project, and her judgeships on the US Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court are what she's famous for, I think focusing on her tenure with these organizations is reasonable.

And what it covers, it covers with great humor and love. The authors admire RBG for being a steadfast champion of the belief that the government must ensure that women have "full citizenship stature," and that this right frees not just women, but men also, from constraints on their opportunities to participate in and contribute to society. I appreciate the discussion of her important court cases (both those she argued as a lawyer and those she gave opinions on as a judge), and I appreciated the auxiliary PDF with annotated excerpts of the major cases. I also enjoyed the more personal sections about her relationships: not just that with her husband (though that was clearly the most important to her throughout her life, and a wonderful model of a marriage of peers) but also those with the other justices (male and female, conservative and progressive), her clerks, and her personal trainer.

Reading about RBG also helped me articulate to myself what I mean when I say that I'm a feminist. Just as I consider myself a Democrat in the mold of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, I consider that I'm a feminist in the mold of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

What I'm reading now: Abaddon's Gate, the third Expanse book by James S.A. Corey. So far I'm about 20% into it but not very into it, as it were, as the characters are all completely new and therefore I don't feel particularly invested in them.

What I'm reading next: Just downloaded the audiobook of West with the Night, Beryl Markham's autobiography, from the library. I also plan to read The Marches by Rory Stewart, about walking the border between Scotland and England, when I either finish with or get bored with Abaddon's Gate.

What I'm currently watching: Seven episodes into S1 of The Expanse. Mostly B and I grumble about the things they've changed from the books that don't seem to have any good cinematic or story-telling rationale.

What I'm currently playing: I am well into the Blood and Wine DLC expansion of Witcher 3 and really enjoying it. There have been several entertaining quests so far, though also I had to enter a tournament involving horse racing and man, do I ever suck at horse racing with this gameplay system. Everything seems to have an interesting story associated with it, which is something I really like about this game. I will be sad when I finish!

I should put "close some tabs" on tomorrow's to-do list.

2. I've reached the stage of fannish language learning where I'm memorising the sappy lyrics of Kdrama theme songs (specifically "Because It's You" from Big, and "White Love Story" from Coffee Prince). I don't understand all the grammar, but I understand some, and it's expanding my vocab with such useful expressions as "I can bear it a few times" and "laugh and cry for no reason" and "sigh" and "greedy" and "flustered". \o?
