I heard a rumour that there's a meme where you find out what's your five most and least kudosed fic on AO3 and ponder about it. So I'm obv doing that. Get ready for a blast from the past!

Wilson: [in mock-disgust] Oh… my… God. This guy means business. Or guys. Could be, could be multiple… Could be multiple guys. Or a gal. Who knows? All I can say is, this reeks of boldness.

House: [staring him down] I am not hiring a team.

Wilson: You ever tighten a guitar string really, really slowly? Past the point it can handle the strain? It makes this weird… sound. Almost like a scream.

goodbyebird: Wonderfalls: Jane thinks this book sucks. (Wonderfalls)

* Zavvi is currently selling their previous threads boxes, two for the price of one. So if you're in Britain you can get two books and two t-shirts for 10£. Ending up with an Aliens and a Fury Road t-shirt, plus Charlie Jane Anders' All the Birds in the Sky ([personal profile] renay is vomiting rainbows in the reviews, so I'm guessing it's an alright book hehe), and another book that looks ok.

* [personal profile] musesfool is running an OPI Summer Challenge, and that is pretty much the funnest premise ever. So many good potential prompts to choose from.

* If I ever attempt to give the third season of Twin Peaks a fourth chance, somebody please come punch me in the mouth.

* Found out the next episode of Game of Thrones was leaked, but alas, I'd already been spoiled. Thanks, twitter.

* I really need to finish Mass Effect Andromeda when I'm home, but I haven't even looked at my Playstation the past two weeks *sigh*

* Of course, dumb me just started another game on my laptop, plus a couple of playthroughs on youtube, because why do anything that makes sense ever. Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice looks all kinds of intense, and I'm holding off watching more than the first play video since I do want to play it myself. But I'd need headphones I can use, hmmm... Meanwhile, I did make some icons.

(it really does look - and sound - amazing)

* Also, a vid rec list should be forthcoming shortly.

40 Days of Anime: Day 3

03 - which anime made you laugh the hardest?

I don't watch much 'comedy' as a genre - not even outside of anime. Way too much either hits my embarrassment squick, or else the cast are assholes. Or both! (See also: OSOMATSU-SAN and EXCEL SAGA, both of which I saw recommendations for as OMG FUNNIEST THING EVER, and no. I managed all of one episode each, and then noped out hard.) I'm more likely to laugh at manga.

But after rummaging through my past catalog, I found a couple OVAs that did make me laugh! DRAGON-HALF (heroine is half-dragon! unfortunately, her love is a dragon hunter! whoops, nothing for it but to enter an enormous tournament for reasons that I don't remember and may not have been explained), and SHINESMAN (loving parody of super-sentai e.g. Power Rangers - I've only seen the dubbed version, which is glorious).

The REAL King Cake

Posted by Jen

Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, so I thought I'd feature some appropriate cakes. However, I realize many of our younger readers may not be familiar with The King. So listen up, whipper snappers! Picture an older, more talented, better looking, Southern Justin Bieber wearing a white, bedazzled jumpsuit.

...

Also, he may or may not be dead.

...

Maybe don't picture that part.

 

Right. All together now? Then let's get started!

 

This is Elvis:

Rawr! Ffft ffft...

 

This...

...is not Elvis.  I'm thinking either Ray Liotta or Wayne Newton.

 

Elvis:

Not Elvis:

John claims this looks like Jimmy Durante. It's like I don't even know who he is anymore. (John, I mean. Jimmy I had to wiki.)

 

Elvis:

 

Um...

I'm going with Liza Minelli.

 

Elvis:

Oh! Wait! I know this one!

The Brawny paper towel guy!

 

And finally, Elvis:

Annnnnd:

Queen Amidala. Or maybe one of the guys from Menudo. (Thanks, John!)

No, no, I'm staying with Amidala.

 

Thanks to Paula H., Diana C., Connie B., and Chrissy K. who are all, collectively, nuthin' but hound dogs. And oh! The crying! ALL the TIME! Enough, already!

Ah thank you. Thankyouverramuuuch.

 

Update from john: The Munsters! The last one looks like the kid from The Munsters! I knew it was something with an "M" from my childhood.

Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.

I'm totally cherry picking the applicable prompts at this point and ignoring the rest. Because yeah - flora and fauna sort of got mostly covered under food, and make no real sense to try to detail when you're talking about one race on spaceships and one race spread over multiple planets with different native whatevers. And I drew a blank at traditions (not as in there aren't any, but as in detailing them felt too static to my brain, so you don't get a write up there.)

11) Language )


14) Food )


15) Technology )


Next up - Magic as seen from these two races in particular and by the Galatics in general (as opposed to the rather messed up Terren take on it), and then I feel like I *might* have enough groundwork laid to start writing.

Also.... I need an icon for this 'verse, dammit. hrm. *goes to browse pics* Icon has! Title... not so much. 'Bugs and Bears in Space' is not really going to work, not even as a working title. XD

Hello, [community profile] femslashex creator!

I am nuts about all the fandoms, characters, and ships I've requested, so you really can't go wrong here. Feel free to disregard everything in this letter if you have other ideas. I hope you'll have fun!

Little Colonel

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a series of posts about the Little Colonel books. I’ve read so many books from the era, it could all go to such good use contextualizing everything that’s going on in the Little Colonel - the good and the "why the hell did you just write that???"

And also there’s all this pent-up squee about the Lloyd/Ida possibilities that just needs to go somewhere.

Would anyone be interested?

oh and a warm apple. like, a really warm apple. warmer than my teeth when i bit into it. no offense but. why. did they microwave this apple? did they store it in a dragon's mouth before allowing me to purchase it? did this apple recently return from a trip to the surface of the sun?

Context is the slings and arrows of working in the food service industry.

There’s a thing readers should understand with this book: we’re not doing business in the normal way. There will be no tie-ins until we get back to Earth. We’re self-contained, telling our own story, beholden to nobody, and we’re on a trip out to the far reaches of Marvel Space, and we’re going to come back changed, and carrying something very special with us. -- Al Ewing
