VIDUKON! I sort of wasn't sure about going this year, but then I looked at the con webpage and was like. OMG. YES. THIS OLD THING AGAIN. SIGN ME UP. So, I did.

ANYWAY. I totally want to do a panel or something again. The brainstorming post will go up soon, which is good, since I have nooo idea what I might do as I'm still in the awkward watcher-not-creator place. But whatever, IDK. Thoughts. Blah. Vids.



VIDS!

Much as I hate google's relentless drive to unite us all under google+ I have to say, having my youtube history saved has been really useful.

For the second time* this month I've been able to place an elusive song, the lyrics and singer of which I had completely forgotten. (The first was to try and find The Heavy to rec them to someone.) All I remembered was the useless, instrumental/vocal section, and typing "oh ohohh ohh" into google doesn't do all that much. Anyway, the song I was looking for was So Cold by Ben Cocks and I knew I'd first heard it on a youtube Potter vid. It's a good thing I try and centralise my fandom browsing under my fandom email though. The accidentally- signed-in-as-someone-else thing can be a pain. Especially because, and to go back to my previous, unite us all under google+ hate - I don't want my fannish browsing to come up under the farm's work email. It's not even my personal work email. It's the email for the entire business. It's so fucking annoying.

Anyway, I figured. I know I've probably recced most of these already. But there's never a wrong time to rec more Harry Potter vids.

So cold by Julia36229 - Despite this being the reason I started searching, it's actually not a favourite. it's got the classic youtube effects make over - blown out sound and contrast.

Harry Potter Feat. Glitch Mob by Grable424 - This one's just a really fun action-er

Never Fall Away by Grable424 - GODDAMN. THIS IS SO FUCKING DRAMATIC. I'M CRYING.

Breaking Point by niicoleelee - The name says it all. This just makes me want to cry.



VAMPIRES!

What would happen if all vampires from all canons got together in - let's face it - New Orleans.  )

Where Ward is replaced by a Muslim woman... )



* -- I have heard SHIELD has improved recently, so maybe this is no longer relevant. But I bet it doesn't have Muslim sorta lesbians and evil robots and conversations about race and passing and becoming part of the system and shared bodies and DEAD PUPPIES. So clearly mine is much better.

Which I am pretty much across the board as I changed my tumblr ([tumblr.com profile] nemonclature ), added an AO3 pseud and my twitter was already [twitter.com profile] nemonclature . It's just LJ that I left because I never use it any more.

Midnight Judges by lettered. Okay so as the AN says, at times it's transparently fix it, But towards the end, when everything comes together and people start doing some seriously badass POLITICS and TALKING also there is a LAWYER... FFF I can't tell you how much I love save the world through TALKING plots. Plus it made me start to like Kirk again.

This is exactly what the doctor ordered. (I just wish there was more Sulu)

"It could just as easily have been you." (Teen Wolf)

According to a recap I read, the Alpha says this to Stiles. Which made me want an AU. Instead of doing the sensible thing and finding a kink_meme on which to prompt it. I STARTED WRITING IT. So first I got hold of the show and now I'm watching and writing. I quite enpoy doing it parallel like that with these kind of AUs -- staying very close to canon until divergence is necessary. But if I really stay close to canon, as in, scene by scene, it's gonna take bloody forever to write. So I'm going to have to diverge sooner rather than later. I have some ideas plotwise, but since I haven't actually watched any further than I've written (Which would be halfway into ep one... >_<) I don't really know if it's going to make sense within canon parameters. IDK, I could go entirely off track, but that means more work, and GDI I HAVE OTHER STUFF TO WRITE. Where did this even come from? I wasn't going to watch this damn show.



There should be more threesomes on TV (How I Met Your Mother). This clip ends too early, they cut the bit where they then all fall onto the sofa together. (NB: This is from the blooper reel, don't get those hopes up.)



A sexual minority speaks out and Response. -- It's not subtle, the response even less so. But it's funny and painful all the same.

In Barcelona. Have a job! Only 8 hours a week but whatever it´ll cover rent. IT´S A START. OKAY? Am using flatmate´s v weird Spanish keyboard laptop and her dongle internet thing, still no internet in the flat. ¡Dios mío!

Ok, so do you ever get this thing where you get a soundtrack/music in your head? I don´t mean a tune stuck in your head, I mean, for example, when I'm making up stories, or daydreaming. I get a soundtrack in my head. If I focus too hard on it, it disappears into silence. Usually I don't notice it's there, but if I do, If I sort of half focus, like looking at something out of the corner of your eye, I can listen to it.

But I'm not consciously deciding what note comes next. I don't even decide what style/genre of music it is. It just seems to happen.

IT'S NOT WEIRD. I'M TOTALLY NORMAL. SHUTTUP.

I am planning a lesson about Alice in Wonderland. I'm looking for an abridged text to use with my students, and I came across this.

"...But when the Rabbit actually TOOK A WATCH OUT OF ITS WAISTCOAT- POCKET, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet..."

I couldn't help but read the CAPSLOCK as if the narrator had suddenly STARTED SHOUTING! (The internet has broken me) And then I realised what it really needed was some CAPSLOCK SWEARING.

... Some helpful enabling later (thank you [livejournal.com profile] gelise!) and this is the result:

THE WHITE RABBIT. THAT GQMF. )


I should probably get back to planning the damn lesson now... Can't I just have the students all make GQMF posters for each other? That's useful shit, right?

When I go for my walk in the evening I always see this one Roe doe in the field across the road from the farm. It's directly on my route, so we usually do the, stop and stare at each other for a minute, thing. I see how close I can get. She just watches silently until finally deciding to bolt and goes leaping through the field into the spinney.

Well, I saw her again today, only this time she had a buck with her. It was adorable, they were messing about, following each other, him with his stumpy little antlers and both with their black noses. They were so wrapped up in each other, and I guess I was downwind, because I was able to get pretty close before she noticed and leapt away. He dozily hung about a bit longer, giving her a couple of confused glances until finally realising I was there. We did the stare-stare thing, his big ears angled towards me, and then he bounded off as well.

I saw them again once I got back, when I went to close my window, they'd crossed the road and hedge into our farm and ambled across the field, very elegantly leaping the fence before continuing on their way.

I'm going to take the camera next time and see if I can get some photos.

Zen -- My thought process behind watching this went something like: RUFUS SEWELL! RUFUS SEWELL! RUFUS SEWELL! YEAH YEAH YEAH! So I was totally biased.

Basically, it's silly and a bit crap.  )

Thank you A, this is now stuck in my head forever ... salt peanuts, salt peanuts. (Also, that pic of his face is scaring me. No one's cheeks should look like that.) And have Young Frankenstein Puttin' on the Ritz, just 'cos.

Things in Sherlock fic I cannot deal with:

Mycroft being obvious
John outwitting Mycroft
Sherlock outwitting Mycroft
Anyone outwitting Mycroft
Lack of Mycroft pwning the world.

HOW DO PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND HOW EPIC MYCROFT IS? SRSLY.

Stupid movies I can't wait to watch:

Cowboys and Aliens
SCIFI!WESTERNS! ALIENS! COWBOYS! IN THE SAME MOVIE! LASERS AND FLASHING LIGHTS! JAMES BLOND!

Drive Angry
WILLIAM FICHTNER! NICOLAS CAGE! SHIT GETTING BLOWED UP FOR NO REASON! RANDOM BABY!

eps 15 - end. [spoilers of course]

I don't really review shows so much as capslock random words. Like, if you're watching the show, it make sense, but I really doubt it means anything if you haven't seen the show. APOLOGIES every 99% of you who haven't watched. What can I say, you're missing out on some epic crack, right here.

What is it with me and fire alarms? Last year it was all the fire alarms in our flat going off, which ended with me calling 999 and three big tall firemen causing much flailing and squeeing (in my head/on lj, I didn't embarrass myself IRL, thank you.)

And last night the alarm in my room kept doing the same - going off for no reason. Seriously annoying. (No firemen unfortunately, just me, half asleep, stumbling downstairs, checking the gas was off, opening the window to the fucking freezing night air, and eventually poking the damn thing repeatedly and trying to rip the batteries out)

Do I have some anti fire alarm forcefield or something?

Trip down memory lane, radio edition

I'm sorry I haven't a clue

Mornington Crescent -- In case anyone doesn't know, Mornington Crescent is a total made up game where you have to say names of tube stops and act like you know what you're doing. Those rules they're giving? Don't even try.

And here they're ripping 'The Weakest Link'.

... It's basically crack.


The Goon Show

The whistling spy enigma (Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers and Harry Seacombe) - There's no straight guy in the Goon Show, the only straight guy is Ned Seagoon, and he's completely mad. It's absurd. Pure surrealism of the kind only radio can do properly.

We used to listen to these ALL THE TIME. (Do you remember the days of casette tapes. Do you?). But I've never watched them before, so it's fun to see all the fluffed lines, giggling at their own jokes and silly antics they get up to.
