Fandom creative awesomeness mini-linkspam:

Oooh, Feather is running another Dresden Files ficathon, right in time for Halloween. Now I just have to figure out what to request!

Tealin doodles Doctor Horrible, and it is love and win.

Aysha/Questionstar posts a quasi-tutorial of her amazing armor-making method. I wish my fandoms had characters with awesome armor, because desperately I want to experiment with some of these techniques.

Nerd Squee MiniSpam:

Amanda Palmer sings "I Google You". Highly amusing! (Good lord, I hate it when people google me)

Deleted Iron Man scene

Dollhouse scenelet

Alan Tudyk interviews Nathan Fillion

Hot library smut!

Political Mini-Spam:

David Shuster pwns PUMA

Nifty Anti-McCain ad

And a meme!

Pick a fandom, and I'll tell you which character(s) I would:
1. bake cupcakes for
2. trust with the keys to my car
3. put thumbtacks on their chair
4. have a crush on
5. pack up and leave if they moved next door
6. vote for President
7. pick as my partner in a buddy movie
8. pair up
9. vote off the island and into the volcano
10. wheedle into fixing my MP3 player

Woohoo, Dresden Files Ficathon! Doo eeeeet.

And AAAAAAAARGH. I just ripped my SECOND pair of jeans in TEN DAYS. Sure, these were very old jeans, but they were my favourites. Also, poor timing, universe! If this had to happen, why couldn't it have happened yesterday? I could have gone shopping today and taken advantage of all those lovely Presidents' Day sales.


Oh Firefly marathon, will you make it better? Of course you will! You're a Firefly marathon! You make everything better!

Maybe my ripped jeans are a sign from God that I should dress up as Delirium for Comic Con.

(This moodswing is brought to you by the chromosomes XX and the color Red.)

So. Shepherd Book's story will be told in a graphic novel.

In what twisted parallel universe is that a good idea? Are there shrimp? Maybe some terrifying space monkeys? Dude, Joss, don't give in to fan pressure. Serenity told us absolutely everything we needed to know on that count. Our imaginations have already filled in that gap. I have complete, utter confidence in your supreme televisionary and cinematic genius, but the comics... I just haven't been able to get into any of the Mutant Enemy-based comics. Not "Those Left Behind," not that spate of Angel comics that came out shortly after S5 ended, not Buffy Season 8... Feh.

Oh well. Everyone else in the thread is beside themselves with glee, so clearly I'm overreacting. Maybe I'll feel happier about the news when I'm not all muscle-achy and miserable from doing an hour of continuous pratfalls for mocap yesterday. :D Ah, I love my job.

Noooooooo! Why are you sold out, Serenity Blue Sun Travel Poster Set? I wants them, precious! I wants them!

How perfect would they be in my new apartment? Moderately classy-looking AND nerdy as all get-out! I shall watch you for restocking, yes I will.

Edit: OMG, they're back! You are MINE, poster set! And you will be classily matted and framed to match my furniture. Now if only the FREAKING WEBSITE would process my order!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, high-def video of the 9 glorious minutes of Ratatouille Pixar released today. Oh, Pixar! Why won't you hire me?

Speaking of Pixar and the godlike Brad Bird, Daily Bulletin speculates that Bird may have a hand in the John Carter of Mars movie. I was somewhat dismayed when I heard Disney/Pixar had bought the rights, as I loathed the book, but if Brad Bird were behind it? I have no doubt he could whip even that chauvinistic claptrap into brilliance. Kind of wish he'd do something original, though.

Edit: Apparently The Daily Bulletin is just super-gullible and bought into UpcomingPixar's April Fools Day joke. Thank goodness!

In other news, Nathan Fillion is the most wonderful person ever

Aaaand I'm now writing my Psych paper on Buffy. I believe this nicely rounds out my Fandom in Academia series:

Freshman Year:
  • Visual Communications -- Lord of the Rings. Comparative visual analysis of equivalent scenes in two film versions of "Return of the King."
  • Digital Design Foundations -- Sandman. Reinterpretation of The Endless in my "Sandman Series." In this class, I also did designs inspired by Monty Python's Ministry of Silly Walks and Ender's Game.
Sophomore Year:
  • Copyright and Culture -- Harry Potter. Discussion of legal implications for different types of fan art (focusing on the Harry Potter fandom)
  • 3D Computer Modeling -- The Nightmare Before Christmas and Star Wars. I modeled an environment from TNMBC and an Imperial walker from Star Wars. Also a creature based on the Jabberwock, but I'm not exactly in the Lewis Carroll fandom.
  • Networked Life -- Buffy, sort of. We were supposed to create a network of absolutely anything, so created a network of Buffy guest actors, linked based on if they'd appeared in an episode together. I ended up discussing the arc structure of Buffy a bit in my analysis of the shape of the graph, but it wasn't really about Buffy itself.
Junior Year:
  • Film History -- Star Wars. The impact of the original Star Wars trilogy on the special effects industry.
  • Virtual World Design -- Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean. Created a video game set in an environment based on an image from The Wolves in the Walls.
Senior Year:
  • Feminist Fairy Tales -- Terry Pratchett. Theories of Revision in Tepper’s Beauty and Pratchett’s Witches Abroad. (We read the book in class, mind you!)
  • Film Analysis and Methods -- Firefly/Serenity. Comparison of themes of "otherness" in Serenity and The Searchers
  • Science and Literature -- Doctor Who. Senior Year, Empathy with aliens in War of the Worlds, Ender's Game, and DW 1x06 "Dalek."
  • And now: Psychology of Judgments and Decisions -- Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The indirectness bias in "The Gift" and other episodes.
Why yes, I am awesome. I accept your love and I return it.
