jmtorres: Electric Mayhem: the Muppet Band's bus. (music)
I am looking for music videos (like, the ones the bands make, not the ones we make) involving fantasy imagery (fairies, monsters, unicorns, swords and sorcery, vampires, or even potentially nonmagical period costume dress). You may assume I have already seen all of Lady Gaga's (mermaids! deathsheads! monsters, unicorns, and so on.) Recommendations, please!

---

unrelatedly, i have more steve and tony bunnies (my life, seriously). like, one where steve finds out about steve/tony fanfiction and keeps sending tony links that are like, my list of recs/anti-recs, but from steve's pov ("In this one you're a vampire! and I'm an asshole?" "Oh my God we are both morons in this one, it's actually kind of creepy how stupid we are" "they made you a supervillain! but they gave Pepper an Iron Man suit, which is awesome, really") and tony's reaction is to link steve to a youtube of 'the internet is for porn.' and possibly not on youtube actual sex tape(s) of tony. other hilarious corners of the internet steve could find: apparently in the porn business non-fanfiction side of things, cap/wonder woman is a... reasonably popular pairing. dude I don't even know don't ask how i found it, i burned the browser history. and steve's complaints are "she's a fictional character! and we're both in full costume, how do they think we could.... do it?" oh steve.

also if things keep up as they have been in my personal life, i'm going to be inflicting the wonders of modern dentistry on steve as displacement or catharsis or something.

I went to the Asian market today, which is always an exciting adventure of "Oooh, I can't get that anywhere else!" and "Buns/samosas/mochi balls! What filling is in them? That sounds tasty" and "I would not have thought to combine those ingredients into a soup but I will assume this is a tested recipe and give it a try."

I've been enjoying lychee martinis at the froofy sushi restaurant recently (I especially enjoy telling unwitting companions when they ask "What's that" re the skinless, from-a-can lychee in the drink, "An eyeball." People of the approximately 147 countries represented by foodstuffs in this market, I apologize for exoticizing your cuisines.) Anyway, today at the market they had fresh lychees, and though I had earlier resisted the lure of a can of lychees--I should not make lychee martinis at home, I should not--I could not resist buying a bag of fresh lychees, because fresh fruit is this AMAZING thing and anyway this bag is huge. Like, it contains dozens of lychees. I don't even know.

Okay, I have never met a fresh lychee before in my life. Advise me, oh droll. At what color/texture have they achieved peak ripeness? Does one eat the skin, or remove it? (After all, canned peaches are usually skinless but that doesn't mean you can't eat their skin.) If it's advisable to remove the skin, what is the recommended methodology? How many of these fruits does one eat at once? Does one eat them with other things or totally on their own? And lastly, is the "y" pronounced long "I" or long "E"? I had a waiter correct me on that the other night but he was Anglo like me so I don't trust it necessarily.

I like my--okay, I wasn't going to make the joke, but it actually works: I like my drinks like I like my women. Fruity!

*snickers and waves a rainbow flag*

Anyway, this would be about the drinks. I am currently trying to research what you can safely put in Baileys Irish Cream without curdling it; specifically I am looking for fruit liqueurs/schnapps you can put in Baileys, and I am having a hard time because part of the internet is busy denying the fact that it can curdle at all (based on the fact that it is stable enough for sale?) when I know empirically that Baileys and Chambord will curdle; and just looking through drinks sites has convinced me that people will serve curdled/curdling Baileys and just name the drink something really vile like Abortion or Smashed Brains or Cumdumspter.

(ew.)

So! Fruit alcohols that can safely be mixed with Baileys? Fruit alcohols that most assuredly cannot? I take your advice.

I have no good way of looking up vids being made during the run of X-Files, since vidding fandom was still mostly vcr in that era. So does anyone recall if anyone did a vid to the Byrds' Mr. Spaceman? (I found a slideshow on youtube, and while in general I feel this counts as a vid, it is not quite what I am asking about.)

I've decided, definitively, that I want, and planned for transport of, a tree.

A real live tree, er, real formerly alive tree.

I've been bequeathed a selection of family ornaments, including the glass chili pepper (which is my favorite ornament ever, it looks like the glass blower was making something in this shape and crumpled it up, so, dried pepper!) and I'm planning to make some things--popcorn strands, maybe some origami ornaments, and stuff.

By the way, this is NOT a Christmas Tree, it is a Pagan Tree: I reclaim the tree in the name of the pagan traditions Christianity culturally appropriated in the first place. Just because Christianity won that cultural appropriation war doesn't mean I can't fight it again.

Anyway, if gift-giving is part of your solstice-approximate traditions, and you would like to give a gift to me, I would very much like more ornaments for my pagan tree! Fannish ornaments, handmade ornaments, ornaments that say "this is where I'm from!" (part of the reason I love the chili pepper so much is it's an Arizonan ornament, and I'm a desert rat born and bred and gone and returned) or ornaments that you just think are pretty. Or funny. I like funny, too. My address is in an access-locked entry. Send me ornaments, please! My tree needs love!

I am screening comments to this entry because I would like to invite anyone who wishes to leave me their address and any requests you may have, because I would like to send ornaments out as well, to anyone who wants one. Probably I'll be sending out origami ornaments, though for some of you I might be moved to break out the popsicle sticks.

ETA: a tree is here!

So I was on tvtropes, doing legitimate research of all things, and um, look I'm not going to link because I'm not a bastard, but if you're really interested the name of the trope is "Becoming the Mask."

Anyway, one of the examples was--

One medieval legend is a very literal taking of the trope, that of an ugly man who for years wore a mask that made him beautiful until when he finally took it off he found that his face had grown into the mask's shape, making him truly handsome.


--which lacks useful signifiers like the title of the legend, the name of the character, or even the country of origin. Also no keywords that have helped me in googling it.

Anyone recognize it?

Baby bit

jmtorres: From Lady Gaga's Bad Romance music video; the peach-haired, wide-eyed iteration (free bit**)
(fucking a'.)

Baby Bit [my netbook, whose proper name is Free Bit from Lady Gaga's self-censored "I'm a free bit**, baby" lyric, but goes by Baby Bit much of the time because tiiiiny] seems... less inclined to randomly fade to white, or whatever the fuck she's doing [the exciting screen malfunction that made her unusable three weeks after purchase]. [personal profile] echan declared it was a Windows problem not a hardware problem. No idea. Anyway, since she seemed like she was inclined to behave, I started loading shit back on.

Added:
-AVG
-Firefox
--adblockplus
--add to search bar
--delicious bookmarks
--epubreader
--fireftp
--ljlogin
--noscript
--resurrect pages
--screengrab
-OpenOffice
-VLC

Got me a pretty wallpaper and forced Bit to recognize the existence of my desktop computer and steal episodes from it. One by one I will drag Numb3rs over here for my traveling entertainment.

Fade to white has occurred three times while I've been doing all that. First time was when I first abandoned her to download shit off the desktop computer over the wireless, because that looked like it was going to take forever. Baby Bit went to standby, screen dark, and when I jogged her back on, whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiite. I glared some and fiddled with the power save settings to take stand-by out of the equation. I was hopeful for about five minutes. Then I got me some more fade to white, twice, roughly half a minute each time, in the half an hour I've been playing around since.

I'm having to add everything back on because product support's big helpful suggestion to solve the problem was wipe everything, return to factory defaults. While I could pursue further support under warranty I am... kind of not impressed so far. Especially since they did not suggest I back anything up before taking that step. (I didn't lose anything irretrievable, but that is bad support.) If it is not a hardware problem, as [personal profile] echan claims, then I feel like either I or one of the more technically proficient people I know should be able to solve it with poking, and leave support out of the equation.

The fade to white phenomenon--as best I can describe it, the screen holds images longer than it should, so everything seems brighter as static images are reinforced; the mouse leaves trails and is easiest to follow if you move it very sloooowly; paging down when reading something results in a fade to the next page of text; and when typing in a text box like oh say the post entry page, the letters will come up as fast as you type them but will have a vertical line between each, as the screen remembers each iteration of the cursor. Presently this phenomenon is intermittent and brief; my last go-round back in May, it got longer-lasting until it seemed permanent. [personal profile] jetpack_monkey suggested it was a heat-related phenomenon (boo hardware) but I do not think that can be so as it would occur when the computer had been hibernating or just plain off for hours or days.

So. Anybody got thoughts on my Free Bit, baby? What could cause my problem? What could solve it? Does it have a more recognizable name than "fade to white" that I could google?

--And as I finish up this post I'm getting a more sustained instance of the phenomenon; it's been about ten minutes now that it's stayed, and Bit's had some flashy moments where fade to white and regular view seemed to be duking it out. Flashy with a lot of horizontal lines across the screen. Fade to white seems to be winning. And oh look, finally just now I got her back. Through nothing I can tell that *I* did.

Help?

So, question, if one wanted to post a daily digest of one's delicious links to dreamwidth, how would one do that?

(I went googling and found delicious glue, which as far as I can tell, [livejournal.com profile] nounverb's original and updated links are no longer active, and I found a copy altered by a fan but as I read through it I realized I had no idea if it would work for dreamwidth as opposed to livejournal or how to make it do so.)

So I've started looking for Castiel/Gabriel fic. It is thin on the ground. Oh well. But so there's one on delicious entitled "Incestuous Adventures in Post-Apocalyptic Dating," by a deleted user named [livejournal.com profile] not_refined. As the user is deleted, the fic is not accessible. Does anyone know where to find a copy of this story? Based purely on the title I am pretty sure I would enjoy it immensely.

It is too late and I am too tired to research liquor laws with a view to how they impact daily life--will someone who has lived in Illinois tell me what Illinois's restrictions on the sale and purchase of alcohol are? I have lived in states where you can buy it at the grocery store and states where grocery stores are not permitted to sell liquor and you have to go to an actual liquor store, where liquore sales must cease after a certain hour of the evening regardless of the store's hours, where it is illegal to sell liquor on Sunday, which means after two AM on Saturday night (the closing time of bars, which also varies state to state), and so forth. Damn it, I've bought liquor at vividcon, I feel I should have a better memory for Illinois's restrictions, but my brain is falling out, so will someone please tell me what applies.

Thank you.

ETA: Apparently IL's county by county! I am looking for info on Livingston County (it is where Pontiac is, hi, supernatural fic ahoy.)
jmtorres: Close-up of the fuschia scarf Lilah from "Angel" wore after being beheaded. (angel)
So I started in on the fourth season of Supernatural today (skipping quite far ahead of where I'd been before) out of an interest in Castiel. After two episodes [personal profile] echan decided that the easiest way to answer my incessant questions was to skip ahead to 4x09 and 4x20, respectively "fun sextimes with Ruby" and "how the Holy Tax Accountant got touched by an angel."

I suddenly have this huge interest in Jimmy Novak. I want to squish him! For the first part of the episode I very much thought he was going to go home and find his family already dead, and then he started lying to his wife about how he'd been crazy! But he was ALL BETTER NOW! and started wondering how he would ever be a fit vessel for Castiel again, since I knew he'd be in season 5, and then as the denoument approached I rather feared that he'd become a vessel again because his family was DEAD. So I was relieved at how it turned out, all told? And also a bit smug to have called that clearly his daughter was going to be vessely as well, if what made him special was in his blood. Also I really wish Dean had grabbed Castiel and turned him around and made him give the wife and daughter a few platitudes about Jimmy fighting the good fight because he loved them.

I want Jimmy Novak fic. I do not know where this would even fit anywhere in the canon unless you twist things sideways and suggest Castiel can/would let Jimmy out now and again, but I have a sort of horrific desire for Dean/Jimmy. I don't know what is wrong with me.

Recs?

I thought, someone, several someones probably, must have written that AU, the one where Harry's Slytherin. Either it's Harry/Draco like vast swaths of the fandom or Harry has a star-crossed romance with Gryffindor of choice.

Vid: The Long Spear
Vidders: MANY--Please credit to "[personal profile] jmtorres, [personal profile] niqaeli, et al", not JUST to [personal profile] jmtorres. This was NOT a solo vid

Fandom: Star Trek and... Star Trek. Yes.
LINK (right-click or ctrl-click to download and save): http://jmtorres.dreamhosters.com/vids/longspear.avi (39MB)

I promised since, oh, about the second time I saw the movie that this vid would say everything I wanted said and that if it didn't I would cry and hang up my hat as a vidder because clearly I would be no good at communicating in the medium.

So I will limit my remarks here and let the vid do most of the talking. I really only want to say three things:

1. An expansion of the credits:
[personal profile] jmtorres and [personal profile] niqaeli were the primary vidders in the sense of putting material on the timeline.

[personal profile] traykor, [personal profile] echan, and [personal profile] grey_bard did lots and lots additional clipping above and beyond what [personal profile] jmtorres and [personal profile] niqaeli managed.

[personal profile] grey_bard also recorded the vocal track for the last verse specifically for this project. The other women whose singing I sampled for this vid are Joni Mitchell and Lorenna McKennit.

[personal profile] killabeez and [livejournal.com profile] slasher69 are two vidders to whose work we paid homage. Those vids were: Killa's Dante's Prayer, because Killa is a seminal Trek vidder of the modern era (Dante's Prayer has been cited as "Hey, you guys! We can use those computers things for vidding!"), and Kandy Fong's Both Sides Now, which is, so far as I know, the earliest vid of which we have visual record (see this OTW journal article for more on the history of vidding).

The following fangirls took pictures of themselves in Vulcan salute for me to use at the end of the vid: [personal profile] ysobel, [livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa, [personal profile] settiai, [personal profile] lferion, [personal profile] azurelunatic, [personal profile] revolutionaryjo, [personal profile] gchick, [personal profile] zarhooie, [livejournal.com profile] missingwatch.

[personal profile] elfling made the awesome costumes we wore to Club Vivid.

I would also like to give a special nod to [personal profile] nshoe, who, while not one of our women's voices in the traditional sense, did help out with Memory Alpha abuse for clipping and making one of my hard drives live again. His wife, [personal profile] niqaeli, also notes that he was very patient with the crazy women in the house.

2. I did, briefly, want to explain the title, because I used a metaphor that I thought was not uncommon, but google entirely disagrees. So you may never have heard it before unless you read all the same stuff I do. [livejournal.com profile] papersky writes about her spearpoint theory; the example she was using it on when I appropriated it into my personal vocabulary was the Vorkosigan novels, how the later novels like Brothers in Arms and Memory are that sharp point on the long spear, they have an emotional impact because of the history of the other novels they carry. I consider the Star Trek Reboot movie to be the sharp point. Since I'm trying not to overexplain the vid, I'll leave the rest of the metaphor unspoken.

3. My hat is made of tin.

I will now take questions from the audience.

(Holy cow, it's harder to hear people cry than to hear them laugh.)

So I had another damn multifandom vid bunny and as a result I'm collecting films that feature a specific type of dystopia: There has been some sort of world war or natural disaster and now all of humanity lives in one last protected enclave, beyond whose walls is a toxic world. Except that our heroes realized that either those in power are lying or the automated systems set up to protect them continued to do so when it was no longer necessary, and beyond the walls the world is perfectly fine, they no longer need to live in fear.

Putting list of films so far behind the cut because you know, if you haven't seen them, the above summary is fairly spoilertastic for the twist.

Does anyone know anything about casting faces and creating prosthetic appliances? My experience: one undergraduate make-up class, in which we used liquid latex and kleenex to make scars.

My current goal: making custom Vulcan ears for [personal profile] niqaeli. Also pointy eyebrows for the both of us (but I am less concerned about that).

Most of my questions have to do with materials. Like, my textbook here says use alginate to do the cast of the face. [personal profile] echan claims we could do it with papier maché, though I am thinking I don't want to try to get newsprint strips fine enough to deal with the ear. So, alginate. (My book is all about the accu-cast brand; I admit I am looking at mold gel purely for local availability.) Do I want quick set (like, 3 minutes) or slow set (like, 8 or 9 minutes)? I mean, as a beginner at this, will I actually get the stuff on before it sets in three minutes? Or if I get the slow set will I end up going "Hold still, it's almost set... almost..." for like, five minutes?

So then, making the positive plaster cast off the alginate face ear mold (ps: I am thinking I will be casting just her ears since that is all I need to make appliances for. Is there any compelling reason to do a full face cast?). Materials for the plaster cast--is there any reason I need to be using hydro super stone pro stuff, vs plaster of paris I could pick up at Joann's?

Once I clay model the pointy ears and make a negative plaster cast of that, I am then a little waffly about what to make the actual appliances out of. Like, I'm reading about painting layers of liquid latex into the mold which would make an ear that conforms externally to what I sculpted but which would not be perfectly molded to the top of her ear. It would be... hollow, I guess? I get that you can't fill up the whole closed mold (inclusive of the positive cast of the ear) with liquid latex, that that won't set because liquid latex needs air to set? That if I want to do something that matches up perfectly to her ear, I'm looking at foaming materials--foam latex, poly-urethane foam, silicone foam, foam gelatin. Any recs re: my low experience level and affordability of materials? Or is a foam appliance overkill for this--should I just make the hollow latex appliance?

What do you consider to be seminal Star Trek: TOS vids? I discovered OTW had archived Kandy Fong's Both Sides Now, one of the earliest vid/precursor slideshows in existence. Now I'm curious. What other classic Trek vids does the hive mind recall? Bonus points for availability online, but I'd settle for a way to contact the vidder.

For that matter, tell me about seminal Trek filk too. Practically the only one I know is Leslie Fish's Banned from Argo.
