Signing up for another commitment is probably the last thing I should be doing, but [ profile] lelek linked to this and I just think this is a ridiculously awesome idea: We Love the Women that Fandom Hates.

Basic idea: pick a female character you think is maligned by fandom in general, and then for an entire week-- from this Friday (September 9) to next Friday (September 16), post about that character daily. Could be a quote, a song, a graphic, a fic, anything at all. Any fandom, any female character.

Even though I'm only nearly done with the first book, and I'm not even at all involved in the fandom, I actually signed up for Sansa Stark. :D I was thinking of signing up for Martha Jones (Doctor Who) and Cho Chang as well, but I don't think I've got enough time for more than one.

But anyway. I think it's a great idea, and you should sign up if you can! :D I think things can get linked to entries [ profile] womenlovefest afterward, but yes.

If you've been wondering where I've gone these last two weeks, well. I really haven't had much else to say outside of hockey six games left til the end of the season! Upset by Vancouver! Still fourth seed but fighting to keep it! OMGZZZZ I HAVE PLAYOFF TICKETS! so I've stayed away from LJ for a bit. Still reading updates though!

Anyway, I have memes?

For the first one I got tagged by [ profile] acidpop25:

Firstly: People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question.
Secondly: Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

Twenty Questions )

And this is the more interesting meme (I think, BUT ONLY BECAUSE NO ONE HAS STUMPED ME YET, MWAHAHAHA!): Fuck-Marry-Kill

1. Comment to this and I will give you three people. (Or sets of three, if you like.)
2. Post this meme with your answers.
3. Provide pictures and the names of three people.
4. Label which you would kill, marry, and fuck.

Kim gave me Terry Boot, Brian Kinney, and Barney Stinson. )

Jess gave me Theodore Nott, Terry Boot, and Astoria Greengrass. )

She also gave me Captain Jack Harkness, Ten, and Chuck Bass. )

Then Line gave me Toews, Sharp, and Keith. (Yes, they are Blackhawks players. Shut up.) )

I did not vote because I cared not for Sawyer.
Then he came for Angel ;
I did not vote because I cared not for Angel.
Then he came for Ned ;
I did not vote because I cared not for Ned.
Then he came for Ten ;
I did not vote because I cared not for Ten.
Afterwards, he came for Spike ;
I did not vote because I cared not for Spike.
Eventually he came for Barney,
and will there be no one left to vote?

Please don't let the rabid Dean Winchester fans get the best of BARNEY STINSON SOBBING HOW IS THIS EVEN A QUESTION??

Guys, guys, guys.

GreatestJournal is back up, but only til January 30.

Less than two weeks to get in, back the SHIT up from old RPs, and then leave, right?

Except LJBook doesn't have GJ in its options, I get an error when I try to use ljArchive, and when I try to export entries from GJ itself, I get nothing.

What do I have to do around here to back GJ up?? D:
slumber: (yikes again!)
If you've been living under a rock, you should probably know that LJ has laid off a lot of people, and basically, people are either saying it's the end of LJ or that people are just getting spooked all over again.

The funny thing is, it's actually GJ that bit the dust. :|

Well, whatever, I would rather just make sure I've got my LJ backed up properly. So I remembered my password for insanejournal (username, by the by, is also [ profile] slumber, which is also my handle in journalfen), and now I am shopping around for a good back-up program. I'm using a Mac, and I'd prefer it if the program also imported comments from the entries.

Flist, any good ideas/suggestions?

ETA: I have started friending some of you on IJ, which I did oh-so-systematically by friending one person I knew in IJ, and from that person's flist, looking at who else I knew, and from there, well, you get it. :| Haven't backed my LJ up there yet, but yes. You may also leave your IJ/JF username here and I'll get to friending.

I am going to miss David Tennant. I swear I am. But. Still! Nobody forgets their first doctor, right? But that doesn't mean the shift to the second one won't be all that bad!

Are you ready, Mr Smith? )

slumber: (tragedy)


Why, WB, why?? (Actually, the article I link you to says why, but.
slumber: (Fandom is crazy)
I browsed my flist and there were no Terminus updates, which makes me sad, but um. That's because the Hilton charges quite a lot for internet, which is the last thing you probably want to do in a conference for people who all got into the conference because of the internet.

I'm just saying.

So, like, I went to Wrock Chicago last Wednesday and listened to the headliners for the first time ever (except I've heard Draco and Harry before) with [ profile] cmere ([ profile] miss_charmed we have photos!), [ profile] illuminations, [ profile] jazzyjello, [ profile] reallycorking, and I think [ profile] longleggedit. Did not get to meet [ profile] acidpop25 because of massive number-exchanging fail *facepalm* but Saturday will be better!

Wrock Highlights:
  • Everyone jumping so much the floor was shaking, til we were told to stop because there's a conference downstairs and the people there are concerned.
  • People actually following the rules, which, as [ profile] reallycorking pointed out, says a lot about HP fans.
  • The Remus Lupins saying "To hell with that, this is a rock concert, I want to see you guys ROCK!"
  • [ profile] cmere shouting "That is NOT Remus Lupin!" in response (because come on, Remus would follow the rules) JUST as the crowd quieted down, so that a couple of people (and maybe Remus Lupin) heard. ♥

Yesterday I met up with [ profile] perculious and [ profile] moonlitmercury, who I'm rooming with as well as Emily, Tai's cousin, aaaaaaaand we ran into [ profile] slash_a_holic while checking in.

Registration Highlight:
  • [ profile] perculious singing and dancing "My Dad is Rich" for a 17-cassette audiobook of Order of the Phoenix.
  • Finding out that I'm dueling.

    Yeah, no idea what that means either. I'm like. "What, really?" Apparently dueling means going up to your "mark" (kinda hard to do in a con of 1500) and saying their name in a conversational voice ("Hello, Rainsparkles25!") before waving your wand (Does my pen count for a wand?) and saying "Tumultosa!" (I'm sure I got that spell wrong; shit. :|)
  • Having possibly the only two Terry Boot fangirls in the world in the same room. [ profile] perculious and I are totally going to drive our roommates up the wall.

    Quoth Emily: "Who's Terry Boot?"

    Quoth [ profile] moonlitmercury: We should totally have a Wizard Rock band. We can call it Terry's Boots. ♥♥♥

    Quoth [ profile] moonlitmercury: You guys are terrible.
    [ profile] perculious: Did you say we were terrible?
    [ profile] slumber: Did you spell that with a y?

    But it is amazing. The password to our hotel-room-slash-dorm is like. Terry Boot is awesome.
  • Finding really good programming.
  • Finding Theodore Nott's rumored to have been cast in the movies already (LINE YOU TOTES HAVE TO SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HIM HE IS ALL KINDS OF PRETTY AWESOME. NGH. I'm gonna get the pic emailed to me so I can email it to you. :|)

The great big dinner was very Hogwarts-esque, which is cool except I felt like a first year, haha. Also, my roommates are all in the same house and I'm like. Not. Tragic.

Terminus staff keep telling us not to scare the Muggles away. I wonder why. :|
slumber: (GA: not boring at all)

I cannot miss the next Grey's Anatomy episode, but I probably will. BUT OMG I CANNOT WAIT THANK GOD THIS CAME IN BEFORE THE STRIKE.


Frankly I do not know how the screen can hold McDreamy, McSteamy, Alex Karev, and GALE HAROLD in one scene and not EXPLODE. Maybe that's why they can only put two in one scene at a time. :|

As I've been stealing my youtube embeds from [ profile] miss_charmed these days, I feel like you should all just defriend me and friend her. :| She will make your day every day, with South Park!Harry Potter and Gale Harold in Grey's Anatomy. Clearly she is made of much win, and I am merely spreading the word on her behalf. Call me John. The Baptist. She is Jesus. And I am Officially Blasphemous.

I've felt crappy and crazy all day, cut me some slack. :|

What the flying fuck, fandom. Did you get the number on that thing?

I'm nearly afraid to check my flist.

hey fandom

So, did you hear? Apparently they have THE LAST SEVEN PAGES OF DEATHLY HALLOWS photographed and on Flickr like, right now. (Oh hey. Seven pages. Seven again. :P)

You can click that link if you want, the photos are too small for you to read anything spoilery now (unless you're really, really, REALLY weird with spoilers), but as soon as you click on any of those photos individually and start reading then I've no responsibility over that.

It's the epilogue-type thing that JKR mentioned. Looks real enough, I think, but yeah, I don't really want to read it right now. :| Spoilers really do spoil me, in the end. :| But oh, the curiosity! :\ (On the upside, I'm pretty sure someone here can verify the authenticity of these photos. :P)

ETA: I was going to post something about how the first link above no longer works, so hurrah for all and temptation's no longer present, but just as SOON as I saw that...

These links showed up. :|
