Okay, I accidentally deleted most of the reaction post to last week's ep, but I *did* get involved in a very long allcaps feelings explosion on [personal profile] jetpack_monkey  's journal with two other fans, so...balance?

Anyway!

Dear Festividder Letter, 2012
maggie
braver_creature
Dear Festividder,

Well, here we are again. Or in your case it may be the first time. Who knows? Regardless, you are here now to make me a vid! Either way my tiny hands are clapping in anticipation.

This year I have a theme, and that theme is "formative childhood movies/tv". Be warned, I watched a hell of a lot of cartoons.

Also, here is a general prompt: I really don't have a lot of specific ideas in mind for these sources. What I'm honestly saying with my requests is this: You, My Secret Vidder, volunteered for these sources. You did that for a reason. That's what I want to see: your reason. I didn't have a lot of "TV friends" growing up who I shared these with. Seeing someone else getting excited about them via VIDS would be awesome. I am, as always, happy to have treats!

So, in rough order of how tightly they have wound my heartstrings, I give you:

Twice Upon a Time (safety)Collapse )

So let's talk about Once Upon a Time
maggie
braver_creature
WHo wants to geek out with me about it? I have many feelings.  I have so many feelings that apparently I had to write a fic.  My first fic.  Ever.

See, I'd been watching piles of TV.  Tore through half of Breaking Bad, got distracted.  Tore through Arrested Deveopment, then Parks and Rec.  Briefly revisited Ally McBeal for very shallow (RDJ-shaped) reasons.  

And then at Vividcon (which I utterly failed to make a recs post for), there was flummery 's Ramalama Bang Bang youtu.be/NGI0c5YASNg which *reminded me* that I was only about halfway through S1.  That vid planted a wee little seed in the back of my head, because there was a specific episode I'd heard about that I could already tell I would be particularly susceptible to (spoiler: I WAS RIGHT).  And uh so I caught up through 2.01 this weekend and uh...it all made an impression.  Huge.  Big deal.  I have thoughts.  Some are substantive, some are...so not.  Let me share.

Spoilers for 1.01 through 2.01Collapse )And then there was fic.Collapse ) This entry is also posted at http://joyo.dreamwidth.org/7782.html http://joyo.dreamwidth.org/7782.html#comments comment count unavailable

A Dance With Dragons

Um...chose that icon because, uh...Winter is Coming?

Anyway, I finished book 5.  I'm caught up now!  The internet and its rampant spoilers in unexpected places can't hurt me anymore.

Speaking of spoilers, here is a cut:

Thoughts about the book, the series, and some things I need to get outCollapse )

Games of Thrones 2x01: I'd Be A lot Warmer With A Belly Full of Mead
maggie
braver_creature
If anyone is wondering, I did not lapse during the March Media Blackout, except when I accidentally bought Feast for Crows.

But I didn't watch Community.  And now I get to catch up.  But this is not about Community, this is about S2 of Game of Thrones.

Okay so season 2 rolls around and suddenly I'm a fancy-pants who's read the books through very-nearly-the-end-of Feast for Crows and now I'm some kind of sassy authority.  But seriously, all I've done in March was read A Song of Ice and Fire and then I got older and Ian gave me Skyrim and so then it was SOIAF *AND* Skyrim.  Goddamn swords everywhere.  Swords when I sleep.  Also fire.

Also in the spirit of GoT/SOIAF, I had a glass of mead when I watched the episode.  Which I finished 6 mins ago.  JUST ONE TINY GLASS.  From the bottle that I opened that was a housewarming gift to Ian like 8 years ago or something.

ANYWAY (Jesus), here is a pretty much instantaneous reaction to the first ep.  I will NOT spoil anything for the books, beyond where the story currently has us.  And when I do it will be to pout about like, inconsequential changes.  That is the warning.

Thank God It Wasn't Chevov's AxeCollapse )

Why I Am Taking Part in the March Media Blackout

Why I Am Taking Part in the March Media Blackout

I am an American expat, a vidder, a gamer, and hopefully I will continue to be a games, or at least software, developer.

As such I've got a few horsies in this race.  Recent developments have come to light, and I'm kind of grateful for the timing.  After SOPA died down I was gonna ease off the promise to participate in the March Blackout, but now the likes of the MPAA, RIAA and Electronic Software Association (ESA) have kindly reminded me why it's so important that I don't.  None of this is over, and furthermore it's going to affect me on yet another level:  as a vidder.

So, to reaffirm my commitment:  In the month of March I will not be purchasing, downloading, playing or watching broadcasts of any film, tv show, music or game that is produced or distributed by members of the above.  I will not go to the movies.  I will also not illegally aquire media in any form (I don't tend to to begin with, but it's worth stating that this is part of the deal).

Why I am Doing This, and Why It MattersCollapse )
