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.

Thanks!

Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?

Still one of my favorites.

Have been re-visiting some of my favorite vids. I'm not usually into fan vids, but I kinda fell in love with this one long ago and far away.



Seems a lifetime ago, doesn't it?

Now off to treadmill while I watch S1 of CSI. Also a lifetime ago.
feliciakw: (Sam's been better)
So. The kitty used the laptop on my desk as a launching pad last night, it fell off the desk, and the power connector was damaged. So it's in the shop until next week. Ack! What will I do without it?

Well, I've got a busy weekend coming up, so maybe I won't miss it. It'll be good for me, right?

I am both impressed and amused that the artist of this cartoon is so familiar with fan culture.

It's both hilarious and disturbing, because it's true )

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 )

I had planned to post this last week, to work through some depression and all. Then [livejournal.com profile] girlyghoul70 sent me that hilarious piccie. And I had a very good weekend. So I'm feeling much better (though still very sleepy from my current meds).

But I want to share what's up, because now that we've had the season finale, which for all intents and purposes was the end of the five-year arc, it would seem I'm approaching the summer a bit differently.

Times They Are A'Changin' )

Farrah's death was expected. Michael Jackson's was not.

I was a huge Michael Jackson fan during the Thriller album's height of popularity. I was in 8th grade/a freshman. My li'l bro and I loved the video, and watched it every night when it aired promptly at the same time every night on MTV (sponsored in part by Miller Beer, which had some hilarious commercials). I wore out a copy of the album on cassette. I had the book of the piano arrangements. I read the unauthorized biographies (most of which I'd be hard pressed to remember today). I was fascinated by his dancing (of course), and before he started in on all the extreme surgeries, I found him to be quite attractive. (He was such a cute little kid during the Jackson 5 era.) And at one point, I received as a gift (Christmas? birthday?) one of the collectable dolls. I think it might still be in my mom and dad's attic. He's wearing his Billie Jean costume, iirc.

"Beat It," "Billie Jean," and of course "Thriller" are probably my faves off that album, and I'm extremely familiar with the choreography therein.

I also really enjoyed the follow-up album, Bad, and the video to "Smooth Criminal" was excellent. Very cool.

I started losing interest after the Bad album, which is just about the time he started doing things like buying the Elephant Man's bones and all his extreme surgeries. I'd lost track of him by the time the pedophilia scandals broke. I watch the news footage now, and it's not even the same person I remember enthusing about back in high school.

Two icons from my formative and coming-of-age years have died today. I'm . . . not sure what to do with that.

Today marks the passing of Farrah Fawcett (formerly, and how I knew her when I was growing up, Farrah Fawcett-Majors).

When I was but a wee lass, Charlie's Angels was one of my favorite TV shows. My cousin and I had the dolls (I had Sabrina, Jill, Kelly, and Kris), and when we played pretend, I always opted to be Jill (Farrah's character), while Cousin J's favorite was Sabrina. Much later, I had one of the Barbie-sized Farrah Fawcett dolls, but iirc, I sold her on eBay a long time back (and put the money toward the piano I now own). I had the CA trading cards and the board game. I had the lunch box. I even remember reading one of the books based on an ep that the library had.

Cousins SJ1 & SJ2 had her famous poster in one of their rooms, along with other of their favorite 70s celebrities (like Leif Garrett).

I didn't follow her career after she left Charlie's Angels (except to watch Logan's Run because she was in it). It's only in retrospect as an adult that I realize she was only on in the first season. I have no idea what she was like as a person (other than what I saw on her reality show with Ryan O'Neal, and I was not impressed). But as a player on one of my favorite TV shows, she played a rather significant part in my childhood pretend.

This entry clearly won't be for everyone. If you find it interesting or if it speaks to you, I'm glad. It is something, however, that struck me as I was doing my Beth Moore Bible study this morning )

Also?

If I ever host a con, the festivities will start a day early. The con goers will be confined to a room, while 300 - 500 strangers are brought in to hug, touch, and grope--with the possible addition of coughing and sneezing--said con goers. If, after the last stranger has left, a con goer is still willing and able to project good spirits, laugh, initiate physical contact, and engage in witty repartee, he/she shall get a full refund.

[/sarcasm]

There's a reason the guys get tired of physical contact with total strangers, people. If they initiate it, that's one thing. If they agree to it, that's fine. But if they don't want to be touched, that's their choice, too. Sheesh.
feliciakw: (Jensen 2005)
So, the SPN con in the UK is in full swing, and apparently the hot topic of conversation is . . . .

Jensen's hair.

He's let it grow out to Still Life lengths, and the debate on Twitter is does it look good or not.

One Twit(terer) said she couldn't believe he let it grow out. I realize that this is a common way to express surprise, but I still find it the comment highly amusing. He had a beard in Australia. He's let his hair grow out for the UK. He's *gasp* being Jensen.

It will take all of maybe half an hour to get his Dean cut back when they start shooting S5.

Here's hoping con goers get some good pics of all the guests. (Video would be nice, too, but I'm not holding my breath. I have a feeling the days of completely pieced together con sessions are a thing of the past. For now.)

Looks like tornado weather out my window, and I've got a schmoozefest to go to this evening. (I won't be overly schmoozing, though. The tickets were offered to us by someone who ended up not being able to go.)

Watched "Bugs" yesterday and "Home" today. Debating whether or not to corral my thoughts on them.

ETA: It's raining quite heavily, and the air smells of ozone.

I've also decided that, after reading all the posts from the various cons about how unorganized things are, say what you will about Creations, they at least seem to have their act together. True, they charge prices that constitute highway robbery, but you know what you're getting. And I had a great time at the one (smaller) Creations convention I went to.

ETA2: The Sequel . . . Pics are starting to go up at SPNWiki. Jensen looks younger with the longer hair! Or maybe it's just that I can't help but relate the longer cut to when he played Max Morgan on Still Life. The stubble is very not Max. This will sound weird, but I'm glad he has the chance to do something different with it over hiatus if he wants to. Two of my previous actor crushes (Michael Hurst and Garett Maggart) both had to keep their hair long for their roles. Story is that as soon as their shows wrapped their series finales, the first order of business was to get a hair cut. (In Michael's case, you never know if it's just going to be a cut, or a color, or a shaved head.)

I saw this on [livejournal.com profile] izhilzha's LJ, and thought I would comment:

Comment to this entry and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms (if I know what your fandoms are). You must then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?

She chose for me

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys )

Farscape )

CSI )

And that's probably more than you ever wanted to know about me.

Laissez les bon temps roulez!

It's Mardi Gras! Time for red beans and rice, beignets, pralines, and king cake! Time for N'Awlins jazz, beads, costumes, and gold, green, and purple.

I went to Mardi Gras with my parents and a couple of their friends many years ago. I wish I'd been keeping a journal back then, because it was an Ad. Ven. Ture. and on the out-of-control-wild scale, we were very tame. Maybe next year, if I'm still on LJ, I'll post about it. 'Cause even without the getting naked and random sex and drunkness, it was a blast! (Mardi Gras really is what you make of it. And it cannot be explained. It must be experienced.)

In other morning news )

I'm hoping my copy of Venice magazine arrives today. I'm looking forward to sitting down with that particular read.

Happy Mardi Gras!
