The [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico auction ends tomorrow, just FYI. Is that popular writer too expensive to bid on? There's a ton of us also-rans who are still available with either low or no bids, and it all goes to a very good cause.

I have both a fic writing offering (2k minimum) here, and a vid making offering (1-1/2 minute minimum) here.

There have also been some new offerings like art from Puerto Rican artists, and merch from NYCC with some newly lowered prices. With over 350 creators, there's a lot to choose from! You can also, if you don't have much in the way of money, get together with other fans and bid on creators as a bidding cabal--people do that all the time in the Vividcon auction.

Another good show gone

1) I finished watching Halt and Catch Fire and wow, is this show overlooked. I haven't seen something this good since S5 of Buffy Spoilers ahead! )

2) This story about a new type of theater experience struck me because it's all about trying to figure out what makes a fandom tick.

3) Netflix may start getting into merchandise licensing. I was interested by this chart of top licensing companies. Most are toy, movies or sports, PVH seems to be apparel branding, and Meredith seems to hold a variety of properties. But one can see why Disney started snapping up properties like The Muppets, Star Wars, and Marvel not just for their creative licenses but for the more immediate revenue stream of stuff. Also, speaking of streaming services, Verizon isn't giving up on its Go90 project: "Web-based TV is becoming “a crowded field,” but it’s “absolutely critical” for Verizon to introduce its own platform, in part as an advertising vehicle for its AOL and Yahoo units""

4) This article (headlined Even smart people are shockingly bad at analyzing sources online) points out why fact checkers are so much better at it than even academics.

5) Nabbed from Petzi last week – states and countries I've visited. I hope to finish up the first map and add more places to the second in the next decade. Read more... )

Content Notes: Created for Inktober - Day 21, word prompt: Furious. Furiosa. Of course. I had to! *g* This was done in three layers: first a pencil sketch with a bit of shading, then a wash of acrylic paint, then India ink over all of that.

I wasn't really sure how this would turn out, so I stopped and took pics at every stage, just in case I ruined it in the next step. :b So I've included a couple of the WiP photos under the cut tag as well. :)

musesfool: woman covered in balloons (the joy it brings)
[personal profile] musesfool
Friday night, I took the train to Huntington - the only train they hadn't cancelled, apparently, so it was packed - and met up with my sister, my niece, and my niece's boyfriend's mom, to go see a "Back to the 80s" show with a band called Jessie's Girl at the Paramount.

It was a lot of fun, though there were some things we'd probably do differently if we were to do it again: 1. miss the terrible opening act - it was a DJ who was just really bad at being a DJ despite playing lots of great 80s music. He was just. So. Bad. And I definitely would have gotten at least a bottle of water, since we were upstairs in the seating area and there were so many stairs none of us wanted to go back down to the bar, so I was SO THIRSTY by the time we got back to my sister's, and I woke up with a dehydration headache even though I hadn't had any alcohol. I mean, I hadn't had anything to drink from when I left work at 5 pm to when we got back to Marg's at midnight. That just ain't right.

Anyway, the band was really entertaining, though some of their song choices were puzzling to me (why "Hot for Teacher" of all the Van Halen songs you could have picked?) and there were a few glaring omisions, imo: no Duran Duran! No Pet Shop Boys! No New Order! No "Relax!" No "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go!" No "What I Like About You!" And since they did do "A Little Respect," which I think is more obscure than any of the others (I mean, not to me - it was one of the songs of my senior year of high school - but Marg and Alyssa didn't know it, and Alyssa knew almost every song despite not even being alive in the 80s), and "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" while dressed up like the dude from Dead or Alive, I don't think the other songs are too much to ask for. Certainly they could have replaced "Sunglasses at Night" and "Somebody's Watching Me" and "Physical" with better songs! but Alyssa says they do a lot of shows so they probably rotate things in and out of the set list.

While the upstairs where we were never filled in, the dance floor was pretty packed with drunk middle aged white ladies, which is pretty entertaining in and of itself.

So we did a lot of dancing, which my knees were not happy about, especially after all the stairs, so yesterday was kind of a painful day.

But because we cover a wide range of enjoyable activities, we went to tea in Port Jeff at brunchtime, and it was lovely, as it always is. The tea shop was all decked out for fall and our reservation was for when it opened, so we had the place to ourselves for most of our time there, which was nice.

In keeping with the 80s theme (not really but it sounds good), I had the Pretty in Pink tea ("a blend of green tea, pomegranate, flowers, nuts, acai and yumberry make up this fruity pale pink tea") iced, and it was both pretty and pink and also delicious. And the scones of the day were apple raisin walnut, and all of the little sandwiches and tea cakes were delicious (except for the grilled goat cheese rounds, which we felt were a mistake, but if you like goat cheese on toasted wheat bread, you'd probably like them).

By then I was exhausted but all the Port Jeff and Ronkonkoma line trains were screwy because of track work (estimated travel time: 2 hours and 39 minutes one way!!!) so Alyssa dropped me at the Islip station on her way home and I took the Babylon branch instead.

I got home and took a two hour nap, and then went to bed after the Yankees lost, so I feel less exhausted now, but I woke up with a cold. My nose won't stop running and my sinuses ache. Bah. I just really want some soup.

But it was a great weekend. A++ would dance and drink tea again.

In anticipation for Branagh's Murder on the Orient Express coming out in a month, I watched the 1974 adaptation for the first time and read the book.

I am now a bit too prepared, because HOW CAN I WAIT A WHOLE MONTH.



The second trailer worries me a little, but I think it's still possible to roll with it.

Politico: Young subscribers flock to old media

What's particularly fascinating is the way in which it's directly correlated with people wanting to support news organizations as a way to resist Trump:

“The big boost we saw in subscriptions in the U.S.,” Newman said, “is driven by people on the left and younger people are more likely to be on the left. That is really a lot of what’s driving it: young people who don’t like Trump who subscribe to news organizations that they see as being a bulwark against him.”

Keep up the good work!

isis: Write what you're told! (micah wright)
[personal profile] isis
Author reveals have just happened for [community profile] femslashex and were yesterday for [community profile] crossovering, so I can cop to the fics I wrote. The discerning reader will notice similarities. :-)

Footsteps in the Sea (5926 words) by Isis
Fandom: Black Sails
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Captain Flint/Thomas Hamilton
Characters: Captain Flint (Black Sails), Thomas Hamilton
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Rivers of London Fusion, Supernatural Elements, Post-Canon, Genius Loci, Crossovering Exchange
Summary: James and Thomas escape from the plantation, find passage to the islands, are caught in a storm at sea, and make a bargain with Neptune.

When I saw [archiveofourown.org profile] linndechir's crossovering prompt for Ocean God Flint, I knew I wanted to write that. I didn't actually game the system, but there were only two people I could write for, and so I was delighted to get this assignment. My favorite part of the Rivers of London series is the existence of the Rivers themselves, the idea of genius loci who rule over their small parts of the natural world. Plus I had always wanted to tackle James and Thomas's immediate post-canon story.

The beach on which Thomas and James find themselves after escaping the plantation, by the way, is where the Bull River empties into Wassaw Sound. The beach where Thomas awakens after the shipwreck is in the Berry Islands of the Bahamas.

The Pirate and the Mermaid (8628 words) by Isis
Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Pirate/Mermaid
Characters: Original Female Character(s)
Additional Tags: Mermaids, Pirates, Supernatural Elements, Cultural Differences, Shipwrecks
Summary: "Of course," said Charlie pettishly. As if she was just a stupid kid, asking stupid questions. "How was I supposed to know? You're the first mermaid I've ever met."

"Well, you're the first woman-with-legs I've ever met!" snapped the mermaid.

Oh, man, this was the most fun thing to write ever. I kind of ignored [archiveofourown.org profile] elstaplador's specific prompts and just keyed off the idea of a (female) pirate and a mermaid, and although I had the (general) ending in mind from the beginning, the story went there in its own way. As I said to [personal profile] sovay it ended up being sort of YA femslash, more of a story about two young women from different cultures hanging out and discovering commonalities than anything sexy or overtly supernatural. It's mostly mermaid worldbuilding, really, and I had a kick doing that. (I actually had a whole sexytimes idea in my head - more worldbuilding, from the physical POV - but that ended up not fitting into the story!)

In other writing news, I've been cheerfully writing lots of little stories and ficlets for [community profile] trickortreatex, but it's about time to turn my keyboard to [community profile] yuletide.

Review: The Death of Stalin

Russian history is not my best subject. I know about the revolution and a little about the events that followed but virtually nothing after 1945. So the historical inaccuracies in this won't bother me.

According to my favourite reviewer, Mark Kermode, Geostorm "takes stupid to a whole new level. You can feel any sense of intelligence you have sort of seeping out of your ears as your eyes roll backwards and you think...this whole thing is one gargantuan joke."

Oh, boy, I can't wait!

Forever chasing these prompts... :b

Title: Deep
Artist: [personal profile] goss
Rating: G
Fandom: DCU, Aquaman
Characters/Pairings: Aquaman (Arthur Curry)
Content Notes: Created for Inktober - Day 20, word prompt: Deep. I am SO EXCITED about Jason Momoa as the new Aquaman. Painted with Indian Ink. In addition to the ink drop, I tried a couple other techniques - scraping the paper afterwards to reveal small patches of white, and using salt crystals to create a rough texture.

Since it's an underwater scene, I've included a second version with a blue digital tint. I *love* the effect - that wash of colour really makes it come alive! :)
