Nathan Fillion Said Not To Tweet This, So I'm Not ::grin::

Sounds a little low and there's a swear word in it. But it's so worth it.

Nathan, Jon and Seamus really do have too much fun together.

I was going through the blog looking for something else and found this from November 11, 2009.

I had to repost it. ::grin:: Just cause it rocks.



See the original post here.

The B-Movie Awesome That Is "Howlin' For You".

I feel like I should have to revoke my geek card for not knowing this existed. It's geek nirvana wrapped up in blues music awesome and tied up with a b-movie bow. The cast alone is swoonworthy.

Someone seriously need to make this movie.

This is the music video/"trailer" for "Howlin' For You" by The Black Keys.



There's also an awesome behind the scenes ;-)

Amazing Time Lapse Video. Just Unreal.

This may well be one of the most gorgeous things I've ever seen.



The Mountain from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.

Per the creator:

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.

Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.
A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April (http://bit.ly/g3tsDW) and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.



Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.

Jimmy Fallon Doesn't Believe I'm Real ;-)

Jimmy Fallon mentioned the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab RPG line last night.



::grin:: I dunno. Am I a figment of some nerd's imagination?

For the record, I'm thrilled about this. How frakkin' cool is it that BPAL got nerd teased by Jimmy Fallon? ::happy dance, squee::


Pardon Me While I Grump About Politics. (Updated)

Allow me to note. I don't talk politics often and the thoughts are mine alone.  I'm disabling comments because I have no interest in trolls.


Updated.

The Onion's Baratunde Thurston has put into words what I can never say. I think it is, in a word, amazing.



I will never know the pain this man feels. The anger. The disbelief. Not on this level. As a Jew, I understand people hating me simply because of my blood, but anti-semitism seems to remain fringe enough, unlike birtherism. That says so many things. None of which I consider positive.

via Deux Ex Malcontent




Earlier today:

I have MSNBC on in the background as I work (I know, I know. ::grin:: Shush) and Keli Goff just made a statement that both explained a lot and pissed me off.

Mind you, I'm paraphrasing, but it was essentially, "We'd like to be covering other things instead of Donald Trump and the birther issues, but that's where the readers are."

I thought news was supposed to be about what the news was. News was about informing people about the things the needed to know, not entertaining them.

Reporters report on what readers want to read and then people assume things based off the reports?

But considering most of the normal people are out doing things like having lives and, oh I dunno, being normal, the fringe elements get to sit home and rack up pageviews and influence the news?

That's...informative.

I mean, think about it. A sitting president just released his frakkin' birth certificate to shut Donald Trump up. Because Trump's nonsense was causing too much of a distraction to other news. Because the news organizations think Donald Trump IS news instead of an attention whore.

Sideshow indeed.

Meh.

Darth Sariah (The Extended Cut) Now With Bonus Footage And More Sith Action!

Just as I suspected. ::grin:: Star Wars fan Sariah Gallego wanted to pledge herself to Lord Vader and she asked her dad to film it for posterity. ;-)

I think the full version makes this even more fun. And for the people saying Dad's capitalizing on this, I think he may just be trying to pay for the kid's obsession.

The Girl Who Bowed To Vader Becomes The Sith Girl

Okay, I never post this much in a day, but how can I not post this?

I posted about Sariah Gallego, the little girl who bowed down to join the Dark Side at the Disney Jedi Academy and, I admit, I was curious if it was her idea or if her parents put her up to it.

Well, Jennifer Landa sat down with Sarah and got the scoop from the SithGirl herself.



Rob over at Topless Robot made a point that I can understand and I'll admit I'm a bit worried as well by the fact that there's already SithGirl.com merchandise. but maybe her parents just realized this may be the only way to keep the kid stocked on toys and still manage to save for college.

May The Dark Side Be With You Sariah.

Check out more of  Jennifer Landa's vids here.

Dead Star Twilight. A Review (of sorts.)

This may take a second, so bear with me and read through the explanation ;-)

When I tweeted a link about Chez Pazienza and his Spring Pledge drive, I did it because I enjoy his blog posts and because I'm the type of gal who believes in supporting authors and artists whenever possible. I didn't realize he had written a book until I read the post and I certainly didn't expect to write about it.

Still, here I am, writing about it.

"Dead Star Twilight" is a memoir. It sounds funny when you figure out how young he is, but when this much shit happens to you, you earn the right to write one.

I'm only about a third of the way through and I'm already going to give you my assessment.

Damn.

Seriously.

I tweeted this earlier, "Ever read a book that feels so true it hurts but causes a smile because you've been entrusted with a secret. Odd to say about a book, hm?".

That's what it feels like as I read. It feels like a man I've never met has pulled open half of his chest to show me the beating heart within and then, with all that viscera shining in the flickering bar lights, told me I'm the only one he's ever shown it to and asked if I'd like another drink.

And, even if you know it's not true. Even if you know he might use that line with any women who might warm the stool next to him, you just don't care because it's real just the same.

I'm not even sure I'm describing it correctly and, I'm not going to lie, I feel like a fangirl even writing this. But the reading caused reaction and the reaction caused writing and I'm not about to feel badly about that.

Side note to the guys reading, flip the genders in the analogy above or make yourself the guy with the half opened chest cavity. It's just as apropos.

If you read Steven King, you'll sense a familiarity with the tone and cadence of his writing. If you like sardonic, you're gonna love this.

And if you've ever fucked up in your life and you've had to claw your way back to something that looks like redemption, well...let's say I've been there on a lesser scale and there's a truth to this story that I don't often see.

I'll get back to reading after I post this and I'll likely post an update once I finish, but I'm pausing to post the link and suggest you avail yourself of the eBook as soon as possible.

Dead Star Twilight
A Memoir


by Chez Pazienza







Updated April 25th, 2011.

I said I'd likely post an update and I wanted to do it here instead of writing a new post. Maybe because I like the synergy of wrapping up my thoughts from earlier and maybe because I've been a posting fiend today.

Either way, I stopped reading not long after I wrote the post above and didn't pick back up until last night. Once I did start, I read through 200 pages until I'd completed it.

I'm sure Chez would find something noteworthy in the way I read this. Fast and furious or not at all.

But I digress.

Dead Star Twilight isn't easy. It's not pretty. And it's not light reading. It's stark, funny, painful, thoughtful, utterly cynical and blisteringly real at times.

And, in all honesty, I can't say any of it is true. Memoirs are funny things and a memoir out of a man who's still in the early part of his life -- well, most people don't have enough life under their belt to write one.

But it feels true. And it doesn't pull punches.

I like my stories like that. Well, some of them. I like fantasy and sci fi as well. But I like people who don't pull punches and who are willing to look ugly when they cry. I know people can be utter assholes in love and life and that there's not always a happy ending. It sucks, but it's life, y'know?

If you're the same, then I'd recommend Dear Star Twilight.

If not, then pass it by.

Either way, thanks for reading.

Ginia Bellafante Responds To The Critics & I Respond To Her [Semi-Rant]

Ginia Bellafante posted in reply to the comments and attention her previous review of Game Of Thrones garnered.

As one of the geek girls on the more vitriolic side. I admit, I was pissed and I ranted and I'm not what you'd call "rational" when I do that. I'd assume she'd look at my comments and move along and that's fine.

She also linked to a few people who were much more eloquent than I was, including Matt Zoller Seitz who I linked to previously, and she did call them thoughtful rebuttals.

Joanna Robinson tweeted this link to me with the comment that it's a "wholly unapologetic apology" and she's right. It is. In fact, it's more of a "what was all the fuss about?" post.

So, Ms. Bellafante. Allow me to sum it up.

If you had explained your thoughts on fantasy and the fact that you don't know women who read it in the tone you used in this post, I don't think you would have gotten the response you did. You summed up fairly concisely why you didn't like Game of Thrones and stated it wasn't your thing.

That's fine and if your review had said that, or even if you'd told your editor that, then perhaps you might not have had to review it at all. You certainly would have avoided controversy.

However, your review was written with a condescending tone and opinion. My friends and I discussed your review the other night over drinks and realized not a one of us knew who Lorrie Moore was. But not a one of us would have written a review of one of her books and dismissed it as "chick lit" and, therefore, not worth reading by any of our friends.

The women I know who read fantasy novels and who were excited to watch Game of Thrones are intelligent, well spoken, incredibly literate women. They have degrees and doctorates and functional relationships. They have children and dreams and they support other women in their efforts to be extraordinary every day.

Your review made women who might enjoy fantasy sound like an anomaly in this world and, in all honesty, those of us who are of the geek persuasion already have a hard enough time proving we're not faking it to "get the boys to like us".

We didn't need one of our own taking a swipe at us.

You owe us an apology, Ms. Bellafante. A real one.

And then you need to let us pick you a book to read.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Unveils New RPG Line. I Die Of Happy.

::grin:: So WoW Insider beat me to the punch in posting about the new Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab RPG scents. I'd be bummed, but OMG WOW INSIDER POSTED ABOUT BPAL! /end geek squeeing.

Anywhoodle. Here's the basic run down. BPAL has created a series of scents based on DnD/RPG classes, alignments and races.

While you can wear them individually, the beauty of these oils is they can be layered to create new scents.

So, if you have a chaotic, evil, half elf rogue, you're layering 4 oils to come up with a blend for your particular character. Change out a class or alignment and you get something different.

It pleases the gamer in me no end and tickles the fancy of my actress former life.

Head over to Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab for more details.

To Ginia Bellafante Regarding Your "Review" Of Game Of Thrones. [Rant]

Not sure if you've read the "review" on the New York Times about Game of Thrones, but I did and I have just a few things I'd like to say to Ginia Bellafante.

1) To quote SNL "Ginia, you ignorant slut".

2) I'm sorry, was there an actual review in there? It was hard to find in that morass of judgement and ignorance about the fantasy genre as a whole.

3) My female friends and I don't have book clubs about The Hobbit. Because we've already read it and we can discuss it without reading it. Additionally, we don't have coffee klatches to do so. We do it over the internet as we trade links over this tiny budget independent film some guy named Peter Jackson is making of the same name.

4) Any geek girl (wait, do I need to explain that term to you) would happily tell you that she's looking forward to Game of Thrones. Not because of the sex, but because of the story, the intrigue, the swordplay and -- oh yeah, I forgot -- the fact that it's based on books they've read.

To be honest, I have nothing kind or polite to add to this conversation, so I'll defer my friend Amy Ratcliffe.

She put this into words rather perfectly.


p.s. I almost thought this NY Times article was linkbait, but that would mean Ms. Bellafante would know what linkbait is.

p.p.s See? I can't be nice about this.

p.p.p.s. If you have a link to a response to the "review",  shoot me a link and I'll be happy to add it.

Edit: More links ;-)

Five Questions With Bonnie Burton

Getting Bonnie Burton to slow down long enough to answer questions took some doing. Between her work at Lucasfilm her writing the Star Wars blog, her crafting and her personal writing, she's pretty dang busy. However, I am such a do-er and thus this interview was born. ;-)

Those of us on Twitter are  familiar with your love of 80's Twi'lek art, being crafty and Godzilla slippers. But what's something Twitter has yet to learn about you?

I'm an open book, so I'm pretty sure everyone who's brave or tolerant enough to follow me on Twitter knows everything there is about me. I do a LOT of Star Wars crafts -- on StarWars.com and to promote my new book The Star Wars Craft Book -- so I often post photos of my process on Twitter and take a poll of what people think. In fact, when I was making the Jabba the Hutt Body Pillow for the book I asked my followers to vote on the color green of Jabba and where I should place his eyes on the pillow. It was fun to do polls like that to get people's input!

You wrote a book called Girls Against Girls: Why We Are Mean to Each Other and How We Can Change. I have two questions on that. First, what had you write the book and, since you've become such a well known geek girl, do you ever sense the same sorts of meanness can apply to geeks as well?


I wrote "Girls Against Girls" because I didn't think there was really a book out there that spoke to teen girls directly without sounding condescending or out of touch. Many of the other mean girl-type advice books were actually written for parents or teachers, or were too academic. I did a lot of research for the book and interviewed strong, female role models in entertainment who could also offer some insight and advice on how to deal with mean girls and how to not become one in the process. It was a great book for me to write on a personal level because even as an adult I have to deal with mean girl behavior from my own day-to-day life events. I still fight not to act on mean girl behavior as a defense mechanism myself.
The geek community is generally very accepting since we were all considered the nerdy outcasts for so long. But I have noticed lately that many women have been putting down other women for cosplaying as characters that might have rather revealing costumes. Personally, I think all women should feel free to dress up as any character they love whether it's Slave Leia or Poison Ivy. Who cares? If it makes you feel empowered and you love the character, then go for it! The only thing that really sets back feminism is women who want to repress other women.




It's pretty clear from your avatar that you're a Bettie Page fan. What is it about Bettie that you love so much?

Bettie Page was an unusual role model for me in college. A friend once told me I looked like her and so of course I had to find out who this legendary, yet mysterious woman was. She had a tragic life and yet she didn't let it get to her. She made being sexy fun and she never cared about what was considered the norm. She was her own person and did her own thing all the way up to the end. She will always be a hero to me. I also love that she inspired a droid in Star Wars too -- BD-3000 luxury droid!





I started doing a little research and I was amazed by the number of places you write and how many different Google hits you get. I actually wandered into grrl.com a while back and didn't know you at the time. Now that I know the woman behind the site, I'm curious -- do you sleep? I mean, how do you do so much!?

Ha! I sleep... sometimes. No, seriously I should probably sleep more. I guess that's from being a kid and always thinking the really fun stuff happens when I go to sleep and I feel like I'm missing out. I'm not a morning person, so I tend to do most of my writing in the afternoon and late at night. And I have plenty of friends who stay up late too, so we tend to connect online or via texting. I've had many a late-night bad movie text-a-thon with pals who never want to miss out on the fun too.
My dad always says we all have 24 hours... it's what you do with those hours that matters. Some people veg out in front of the TV, some people work out, some people go on dates... I stay home and write, write, write. One of these days I might get a social life. But for now, I'm happy just writing as much as I can before I run out of ideas and steam.





What's a geek thing people assume you'd be into and you really aren't?

I don't dress up as Star Wars characters. I dressed up as Jabba the Hutt... once for fun at work. But I tend to leave the impressive cosplay up to the pros in The 501st Legion and The Rebel Legion. Those folks REALLY know how to dress the part, and I am in constant awe of their costuming talents.

Finally, a bonus question - If you could Lightsaber duel anyone in the SW Universe (expanded as well) who would it be and why?

If I HAD to duel someone with a lightsaber I'd have to pick the worst person to do it so I can keep my limbs and stay alive. So my dueling opponent would have to be Gonk the Power Droid. He's one of my favorite droids, but as far as I know he's midichlorian-free.

You can find Bonnie on Twitter and, trust me, it's worth it. ::grin::

Thanks again, Bon!

Bradley Cooper's In Talks For The Crow? Oh Please. No.

I know it's being written about by MTV Splashpage and The Mary Sue and I know lots of people have already commented but I have to add my two cents because, well, I can.

This is not a good idea.



I could just say Bradley Cooper's not goth and leave it at that. But he's SO not right for this. He's got no stillness. No underlying pain. No darkness. No...brood. There's no way I'd ever look at him and think that he ever thought wearing all black, stompy boots and eyeliner was a way to go out at night. He's not a rock guitarist. He's not...



Oh, please, do I need to go on?

The quote that bothers me the most on MTV:
"The Spanish director of 28 Days Later is said to have met with Cooper in Spain recently, where the two hit it off and shared a vision for the character and the film," according to the report. "Relativity would not confirm the talks but sources say Cooper, currently in theaters in Relativity’s hit thriller Limitless, is keen to board the project."
I don't care how keen he is to do the movie, he's not right for the role.

Bradley, I'm going to be honest here. If you really want to be a serious actor and you're not a narcissist, then you'll step away from this project. Not because you can't do the role. Maybe you can. I mean, it's possible.

But are you really the best person for it? Or are you taking advantage of your name recognition (and the heat behind you currently) to live out a dream at the expense of the fans and, possibly, your credibility as an actor?

Why not step back and let someone else have a shot at it.


(Yes, this is me wishfully thinking)




If you are really keen on the project, then you'll want to do it justice.

Maybe even take another role. Indulge your dark side. Break some rules. Lend your name recognition.

But not as the lead.

Please.

Deep Thoughts and Jerky Boys

Patterns are trippy things...

A friend of mine said today:

"Bad pattern emerging: totally prone to fall for guys who are completely uninterested in/indifferent to me. (Or does this happen to everyone?)"

And then I traded a conversation back and forth with a friend today who can be a bit of an ass, but who I've always thought liked me. However, in that conversation it was all about him and, even after not speaking since my Dad died, when I asked how he was doing, I got back word that he was fine, thanks.

And nothing that looked like..."Hey, how're you?"

Now, the guy's a friend. I've never met him and I likely never will. (After this, heh, well, odds are...) And it's not his fault really. I mean, he's told me he can be an ass.

But it's not like I haven't gotten mini crushes on guys who were jerks. It's not like I don't find myself wanting them to like me, or to find me unique and interesting and worth not being a jerk too.

I wonder, what's that about and, on a secondary thought train, is it related to my friend's ponderation above.

And why do I want to quote Al Franken right now?

Y'know how you read something and a piece of you just...cries inside.

Well, actually, no. That's not quite what I mean.

Cries inside while laughing and nodding in understanding while wincing because you know what's next and falling in love with the author while you know the author is just a piece of yourself that's crying.

Does that make sense?

Read this blog post by Joe Peacock. (Who, as I type this, may be a Michele of sorts to my inner 18 year old)

And once you read it, share it if you feel the urge. I know I did, so I am.

Y'know?

Waxing philosophic about perfect music and clouds on Amazon

I'm really trying to avoid sounding like a commercial, so hopefully you'll hear this as intended.

After the last two weeks, I've taken today to just listen to music and try and get a few things organized. I bought the Adele's 21 a couple weeks back and, save for a quick listen that day, haven't had time t really listen.

It's...perfect.

And perfect is necessary right now. If that makes sense.

I'm actually listening to it on the Amazon Cloud Player and I gotta say, no bull, I think it's a pretty sweet system. I downloaded the album from Amazon, it was already in the player and I have the ability to DL it to iTunes. Plus there's an app for my BB.

But even if all I have is a computer, I'll have my music. Which is rather perfect considering my transitory nature these days.

With so many things up in the air, music that feels perfect and a player that allows me to listen?

Yeah. I needed it.
