1a. Since I'll be off to a conference tomorrow and will have limited internet access for the next couple of days, I thought I'd say hi to my new friends from the SPN friending meme right now! So, HI. o/

1b. I have yet to watch tonight's episode of SPN, but! I am downloading it right now so that I can watch it on my phone on the plane tomorrow. On the one hand, that should make the bajillion hours + bajillion layovers (WHY NO CHEAP DIRECT FLIGHT) more bearable (for 42 minutes) -- but on the other hand, I cannot spew my feels online. DILEMMA.

1c. I want to be a dork and pretend that my black-with-a-strap poster tube actually contains a weapon (arrows? :D), but I'll bet the TSA would come after me. Also, I'm already worried that they won't let me take it on the plane as a carry-on. /o\

1d. I don't know why I am still on the internet when I haven't packed yet, oh my god. [/failure]

2a. Some of you lovely folk talked about podfic! While podfic is delightful and wonderful and I love them ever so, I don't post any here. But! You can find them at [livejournal.com profile] cantapodpatrol. :]

2b. If you like SPN and podfic, you should consider signing up for Cake Swap! \o/


Join us at the [livejournal.com profile] cakehole_club for CAKE SWAP, a Supernatural and Supernatural RPF podfic gift exchange!


3. I thought I had a third point, but I GUESS NOT. I should go pack so that I am not clothesless for the next few days. /o\ HOW IS IT PAST MIDNIGHT ALREADY.
fishpatrol: (just you & me)
1. My new year's resolution is to be less of an antisocial hermit (I kick-started this resolution by actually going to a new year's eve party rather than rolling myself up in a blanket burrito and reading fic. 10 points to me~) My other resolution is to be less of a failbot, but I'm not doing so well on that one. \o\

1.5 I've noticed that the traffic on LJ has been declining drastically over the past few months (probably due to a combination of the increasing popularity of Twitter/Tumblr/etc and LJ's own fuck-ups). Part of my resolution is to be more social online as well as offline, so tell me how I can interact and socialize with you! Yes, YOU, right there, reading this entry. I am always up for chatting about fannish things and capslocking about random things and, idk, discussions about human behaviour and whatnot.

I'm unalignable on Twitter, fishpatrol at DW (I haven't updated this account since last year \o\ if you post exclusively on DW, let me know! I haven't checked my...reading circle? --is that what they're called?-- in ages); I'm considering opening a Tumblr account, but it is like VORTEX OF UNENDING IMAGES -- you fall in and by the time you climb back out, five hours have already gone by. /o\

If you communicate primarily by email/gchat, I'm meemobunny[at]gmail (I am always so uncertain whether or not I should just chat at someone if I see them online \o\ WHAT IF THEY DON'T WANT TO TALK. /O\ So, here: if I'm online, you can always chat at me!) I also have Whatsapp, so if that's your preferred method of communication, we can exchange numbers through, idk, PMs or something.

[/TALK TO ME...?]

2. 2012 has been kind of a shit-show. 2013 hasn't been significantly better, but hey, it's only been two days. (more about this in a locked entry, later -- this is a it's-a-new-year-let's-be-optimistic post)

3. So, about a month ago, I accidentally fell into the hockey RPF fandom, oops. I thought it was just a ~passing ~phase, but I've now recorded a one-hour long podfic and I kind of want to record more, so, uh, IDEK. Poor [livejournal.com profile] applegeuse has had to endure my incessant vomming of hockey feels. Mostly, I say stuff like I am totally ~doing ~sports ~wrong, because I care very little about the actual skill of the players, or how good a team is -- I ONLY CARE ABOUT HOW AMUSING THE PLAYERS ARE AS ~PEOPLE (I love watching behind the scenes videos, etc akdslfjdsj). It just so happens that the better players get more interviews/behind the scenes/etc, so I end up liking the ones that play well because of COINCIDENCE. \o\ /o/ \o\ I'll bet I could totally get roped into American football RPF and/or European football (soccer :P) RPF as well, if they had a ton of fics and a ton of lolarious videos sdklafjlad;j THERE IS JUST SOMETHING DELICIOUS ABOUT A BUNCH OF DUDES WHO ARE RIDIC DEDICATED TO A RIDIC GAME AND, LIKE, ~FEEL INTENSE ABOUT THE GAME AND TO EACH OTHER AND ARE PROBABLY ALL FAILBOTS OUTSIDE OF THEIR RIDIC GAME. THEY ARE ALWAYS TOGETHER (LIVING TOGETHER, BEING ON THE ROAD TOGETHER, PLAYING TOGETHER) AND BOND OVER THEIR INTENSE FEELS ABOUT THEIR RIDIC GAME. IT IS LIKE BOARDING SCHOOL STORIES (which I have always enjoyed in real!books and fic :>) BUT MORE ~INTENSE. [/vomming feels] And she's like, OMG WHY ARE YOU EVEN IN THIS FANDOM, COME BACK TO SPN/J2. s;alkdfjsl;d \o\ /o/ \o\

(I usually blame [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate for getting me into random fandoms, but this time, it's totally [livejournal.com profile] scintilla10's fault. Well, okay, no, not really. It's mostly because I am weaksauce and just need one picture/fic/podfic to pique my interest. X3;; She mentioned the fandom in passing, I lol'ed at her, and the next thing I knew, I was guzzling down the fics on AO3/listened to all of the podfic at least twice/trawled tumblr looking at images and gifs. *MASSIVE FACEPALM* HOW DID I GO FROM THIS TO THIS? creying and slobbing forever /o\)

3.5 ANYWAY. I doodled [livejournal.com profile] applegeuse a little J2 (feat. the alliterative cats) for being a ~good ~sport (hur hur) about the whole thing.



4. On the one hand, there is no such thing as "too much cake". On the other hand, YES, YES THERE IS. TOO MUCH SUGAR, BLERGH BLERGH.

Another [livejournal.com profile] insmallpackages gift! The wish was: Art Jared/Jensen making gingerbread houses.

I want to take up drawing again (I also kind of want to take up the violin again, and learn the ukulele, and pretty much do All The Things That Are Not School-Related). I haven't drawn since forever, so I googled some Sam&Dean hugging screencaps and did a few sketches (HOW DO HANDS WORK HOW HOW HOW. TIME TO WORK THROUGH SOME TUTORIALS. *flumps*).
+3 )


+ Was Kevin's mom's actress re-cast because the original actress was unavailable? (or maybe his mom is actually a demon/whatever and changes meatsuits every once in a while, which explains how she took all the supernatural things in stride \o\) But: Julie! From Friends! \o\ /o/ \o\

+ Kevin's mom is a BAMF akd;fjs;lfj♥

+ THAT SCENE IN PURGATORY. It was like a convoluted love triangle. /o\ OH, DEAN.

+ OH, DEAN, again, because WHAT HAS PURGATORY DONE TO YOU? /O\ It's as if he and robo!Sam switched personalities, what with the cold-blooded killing of innocents for ~the ~greater ~good and all. (the parallels between S7 and S6 are kind of...too blatant? Like, Dean [robo!Sam] being all, "Kill all the things! Even if innocents have to be sacrificed!" And Sam [S6!Dean] trying out the ~normal ~life)

+ I think Crowley is my favourite villain so far. YED was a creeper, Lilith didn't get enough screen time, Eve was a red herring, Lucifer was a bag of dicks, and the Leviathan were a bigger bag of dicks. Crowley...has more entertainment value.


It's the the time of the year where I listen to The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack on repeat~~

I decided to try my hand at making animations today! It was exciting~ I have no idea what program people usually use to create gifs, but I have Adobe ImageReady bundled with my Photoshop CS, so I opened that for the first time ever and just imported a bunch of images drawn in PS (is that the most efficient way to do it? Maybe I should try iMovie for longer animations with more frames).

Anyway, I started off with the simplest illustration I can think of: a chibi!Dean crying his Perfect Single Tear.

;____; )

And of course, upon seeing his crying brother, Sam rushes in for some epic cuddling (imagine there is a "DEAAAAAN" written above Sam's head)

\o\~~~ )

I don't know why I stopped in the first place, but I want to start drawing again (according to my "art" tag, the last time I completely a drawing was more than a year ago \o\). So, today, I pulled out my pens and coloured pencils and did a few doodles and sketches. :>

This is how SPN 7x14 could have ended:

My Valentine Troll )

*Build-a-Bear is this store where you can build your own stuffed toy and you can put a little cloth heart in it which then makes the stuffed toy ~extra ~special.
**Sam's ninja-cutting move stolen from Fruit Ninja. (oops, and he's apparently left-handed ;;;)
***The ending of 7x14 was awesomely sparkly, but I am slightly butthurt at the lack of heart-giving. THIS IS MY FIX-IT.

Some more doodley sketches:
fun with Prismacolors~ )

1.

There's something about the end of the winter holidays that makes me want to take up knitting. XD So I've started up again, with the help of my mom (I swear, every time she sighs and takes the knitting from me to fix it/examine the problem/double-check, I'm sure she's thinking, "Y U SO DUMB, CHILD /o\" She denies it, but I know better). I still don't know which one's a purl and which one's a knit, but whatevs, this pattern seems to be working for me. :> I have too many scarves so this is going to be a bag! Exciting!

2. Photos from NYC in the cut below (not a lot of photos this time, for two main reason: 1) it was too cold to constantly dig out my camera! & 2) my camera doesn't do well at night or indoors, so the pictures didn't turn out all that well)

+7 )

3. There is no third point. Oh, wait, yes there is. New SPN tonight! I think it's about a hooker, or babysitting, or both (or maybe it's about Alec's One True Love crossovering and turning into a monster hooker, idk). I would rather it be about a ~unicorn~.

1. I liked exactly three things about 7x05: spoilers~ )

2. [livejournal.com profile] applegeuse and I have really profound conversations:
cut for general inappropriateness and inability to pluralize correctly )

3. I did want to post about Serious Business, but I spent the entire day reading Harry/Snape fics (it's [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate's fault, because it's always [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate's fault when I spend an entire day reading fic X3) and I'm in a total fic-induced daze and nothing hurts.

Con Summary

Oct. 9th, 2011 11:50 pm
fishpatrol: (in ur internets...)
I want to compile tidbits that I remember from each panel that I attended (I actually tried taking notes on my phone, but autocorrect kept trying to fix my shorthand, so now I have a list of notes that barely make any sense at all ^^;;)

Mostly, I just wanted to share this 1-hr audio recording of the J2 panel. The quality is pretty good (i.e. I was able to listen to it and catch a few comments that I couldn't make out during the actual panel), so, idk, download it if you want it for your own listening pleasure. ;)

--
eta: I've uploaded the videos that weren't terribly shaky and had funny content. Please note: 1) I took these videos from the second-to-last row and I had to resort to the optical zoom on my camera; 2) but I stayed super quiet so no screams or laughter was emitted directly into the microphone of the camera. ;)

+ Misha laughing about his character in The French Mistake and his manager's reaction to the character
+ Since Jared and Jensen made him laugh so much, Misha asked for two stand-ins
+ Clif making finger-puppets on the screen and Jensen running backstage and coming back with two long tubes
+ Jared and Jensen fooling around with the tubes
+ Jared hugging Jensen (I still can't remember what the original question was ;;;; Note that the hug takes place during the first 5 seconds of the video -- the rest of the video is super shaky, and I kept focusing my camera on Jensen because there was a head obstructing my view of Jared, idk why I kept filming ;;;;;)
--

This is a pretty comprehensive summary of the panels (again, I envy those who can tweet and listen at the same time!).

This is all I've got from my mish-mash of notes:

Panels )

...and that's all I've got. My dark and blurry pictures probably aren't worth posting, but I'll go through my J2 and Misha panel videos to see if there's anything particularly awesome that I feel compelled to share. ;D

I finished the first day of my exam today, whoohoo! It bothers me that I got the last question wrong for sure (no, self, lambda can't be larger than one when it's a proportion, omgfuuuuuuu ;;;; I don't know what the correct answer is, but I know for certain that I'm 100% wrong X3;;;;), but whatever, it's done and over with! I didn't think I could sit still for more than six hours (I ended up taking around seven hours), but I managed to override my urge to just put my head down and take a nap in the middle of the exam. Tomorrow is going to be just as terrifying, but at least it'll be a shorter day! And then, one more day on Thursday, and assuming I pass all of the parts (omg, do not want to take quant again or an econ course D:) this should be my last exam ever! \o/

My collaborators are all like, can you do this and this? Oh, right, you have comps -- do them after comps, okay? And I'm all like, D: D: I want a break D: I still need to email a couple of people and tell them that I'm going to Europe and won't have internet access. X3

Also: Thanks to whomever sent me the anonymous gift! The notification was the first email I read this morning and it definitely made me feel much better before my exam -- so, awesome timing, whomever you are ♥♥!

Also-also: This Castiel-meets-the-Ghostfacers video is hilarious -- even if you're not fan of either Castiel or the Ghostfacers, the video is worth a watch. ;)

Also-also-also: I'm listening to the new Super Junior album and it's delightful ♥ And the album cover? Is lolarious~ (oh, Siwon~~~ XDD)
