Hey, all.

I know a few of you on my f-list remember TS (The Sentinel, 1996 TV show, starring Richard Burgi, Garrett Maggart, and Bruce A. Young). I was really active in the fandom back in the day, and I was able to collect several copies of the drafts of various episode scripts. After a chaotic weekend in the basement, I've decided that it's time to part with these scripts. We need the room, and with a little one in the family now, and my working almost zero hours at my job (I'm more of a substitute house manager now, only working 1-3 days a month), every extra penny helps.

If anyone here is interested in seeing a list of the scripts and prices, or knows of anyone who might be interested, or knows of any communities this announcement could be posted to, please let me know. I don't imagine the fandom is as active as it used to be, since only one season was ever made available on DVD, and to my knowledge, the show is not gaining new fans with re-runs in syndication. Still, there might be someone who's interested, and any boost of this signal is much appreciated.

I have several crochet projects--baby afghans--that I'd like to sell on Etsy. Does anyone have an Etsy store who could give me pointers? Blogs or forums to check out? Also, how do you pronounce it? Eeetsy (long "e" like eBay), or ehtsy, like "Betsy"?

I'll post a little more, perhaps, but I need to get this store going to help start putting aside some money for an adoption placement. If it's going to happen, it's going to be this year. It will affect my work schedule, and therefore my income, and I'd like to have a little something coming in to help off-set the change.

Or if anyone is interested in said "affies" (as my brother and I used to call ours), drop me a line. You can ask [livejournal.com profile] kalquessa if you need a reference. :-) Both of her kiddos have one of my creations. (Her eldest actually has the dubious honor of being the recipient of my very first completed crochet project ever.)

I've lost touch with the TS (The Sentinel) fandom over the years, so I'm hoping some of my f-listies can help me out. I've got quite a collection of scripts boxed in the basement, and it's time for me to start clearing things out. If anyone knows of a community where I could post these for sale, that'd be awesome. Or, if you know of someone who might be interested, send them this way. (I'm only asking/expecting the cost it was to me, so not much. Collector-to-collector, no money made, etc.)

Also, if anyone is interested in a full screen version of Cry Wolf, or in Starship Troopers 2 or Decoys (the Canadian release DVD), send 'em this way. I've also got a three-ep Emmy consideration screener DVD of Street Time, which was a cable series that Rob Morrow starred in, that I need to find a home for.

If you could boost the signal on this stuff, that'd be great. Thanks.

A while back, I took to the practice of fandom "recycling"--selling my memorabilia from one fandom to finance my interest in my next fandom. It worked pretty well going from The Sentinel* to N3.

Using one fandom to fund another )

Last weekend, I sold my first crochet project. It was to my mom, true, but I think it was indicative of the really good price someone can get for one of these projects and I can still double what I spent on supplies (hours of working on it was not factored).

She purchased it for the baby shower of one of the next door neighbors I used to babysit. Yeah.

It measures about 30" x 30" and is actually peach in color, though it might look pink in the picture. I'm thinking about pairing this same yarn with a white yarn to give it an orange dreamsicle look.

RIP laptop

My laptop, it has given up the ghost. Hopefully, Geo will be able to figure out how to boot it up in order to transfer everything that's on the hard drive onto a new one. If all else fails, he says he can remove the hard drive and hook it up to his computer (which I'm on now) to pull everything off.

So we're off to the big computer store far away to get me a new one. I'd hoped to have more time to save up more money, but, you know, I don't think I can last that long.

So, I've got lots of things to purchase, and pretty much no funds to do it with.

1) I need to pay the second half of my auto insurance.
2) I need to get new brake pads for the car.
3) I need to purchase a basin/vanity for the master bath.
4) I need to purchase a new cabinet for the master bath.
5) I need to purchase a new commode for the master bath.
6) My sound card has died, a hinge in cracked, and the battery won't hold a charge on my laptop. Ergo, I'm eying a new laptop. Except, see items 1 - 5.

*le sigh*

So. Geo has decided that we're going to give up the satellite TV and get an antenna so we can pic up the HD broadcasts from our local stations.

Yes, it's about time.

We've had DirecTV for eons, and what do we use it for now? Mostly, watching the broadcast channels. Oh, this will mean giving up Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures and Food Detectives, but really? At approximately $60 a month? I think I'll live.

We used to watch a lot of stuff on SciFi (or as it's now called, SyFy), and we used to watch Fox News (particularly around the time of 9/11), and I'd occasionally surf past TVLand or maybe A&E (or whichever station had Celebrity Poker). And Geo has umpteen bajillion old movies recorded off of the old movie channels. But now? All my shows are on regular TV. The other stuff I hear people talk about can certainly wait until it comes out on DVD or iTunes or whatever.

The one thing we will miss, I think, is Dr. Who. But a lot of Geo's co-workers get it off the 'Net (I know a few of my f-listies do, too), so that shouldn't be a major hinderance.

Of course, this means giving up Tivo as well, and Geo is currently searching for a DVR that can be hooked up to record off of an antenna broadcast and doesn't need to be hooked up to cable or something. I've told him that as long as everything is in place by September 10, I'm good.

This has been a long time coming. It's pointless to pay money for a huge number of stations that we never watch.

Also to the end of saving money, once my contract is up, I'm giving up my current cell phone service and going to a pay-as-you-go like TracPhone or something. Because I use maybe 10 minutes of the 5000+ I'm allotted each month.

Why has it taken us this long to get rid of the extra? I mean, heck. With the money I'll save on just two months of cell phone bills, I'll be able to get the SPN S4 DVDs. Save up a little more, and I'll be able to catch up on my N3 collection.

And save up to get either a new computer battery (short term solution) or new laptop (long term solution).

But how strange will it be not to have cable or satellite. How quaintly retro.

Here's what's doing for those who are interested:

MBV placed 3rd in the box office ratings its opening weekend. It dropped to 6th, then to 9th, then to 16th, and has held onto 16th place for a second week in a row. In other words, it's been in the top 20 since it opened.

It had a budget of approximately $15 million, and has, to date, made $50,861,000. Rule of thumb is that a movie must make back 3X its original cost to be considered successful. They are 5 million above that mark, so it's definitely considered a successful movie. Wheels are probably already turning for a sequel.

F13 placed at the top of the box office this weekend. It had a budget of $19 million, and it brought in $42,245,000. It is well on its way to reaching the 3X mark. Not surprising, considering the built-in following of the franchise.

And thank you so much, Boys, for making me interested in box office placement again. *eyeroll* [/sarcasm]
