It's More Joy Day !!!  So I made this vid - hopefully there'll be something in it that will give a little joy.

Title: If It Gives You Joy
Fandom: Whedonverse - Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel The Series, Firefly, Dollhouse (Spoilers Up To S2 Ep3) , Dr Horrible Singalong Blog
Song: Joy by David Poe
Length : 4:17
Description:  Simply a montage of moments of 'joy' from my favourite Whedonverse  tv shows, nothing more sophisticated than that.  I've chosen clips that are 'joyous', possibly very silly and some that may particularly resonate with me. There's also a sprinkling of outtakes in there too,  plus a little Nathan Fillion nekkidness.  Of course there was so much that didn't make it into the vid,  but I had to stop somewhere.
Download :  various AVI /WMV from my site here   or watch streamed at BAM.  Embedded under the cut on youtubehere )

Feedback is appreciated as always.  I shall be back later today with some vid Recs for More Joy Day!

Here's that awesome sketch by Georges Jeanty (S8 Artist)   from the Saturday. He uses a couple of A4 reference sheets covered in screencaps of the character in various facial positions/expressions. It was great just to watch him work away at the strokes getting the lines so right, brilliant opportunity although mostly you shut up and watch rather than ask questions so as not to break his concentration.

On Saturday I'd had photoshoots with Summer, Adam and Tom (I'd actually missed my previous chances to get a photo with Tom at earlier cons so I had to go for it this time)  All the guests looked great - hee! Denis the Menace jumper Tom, I've scanned the pics here.

It's always tough to get up early for photo shoots especially with parties and such.(I was being good and avoiding red wine all weekend in favour of vodka).   It get's tougher every con. Needless to say Zach, Dichen, Miracle and Felicia all looked bright and sparkly.

Phew lots of photos to sort through.  And muddled brain to rack - acrazywench took shorthand notes of the Q&A 's but I tried to remember things from the Meet and Greet & autograph sessions.

Awesome group shot from Starfury - love the 'whodunnit ' montage. Especially Summer and Felicia's poses.  To see all the photos click on the Guests names to go to the page in the text under the cut.

Day One - Opening ceremony and the Meet and Greet  )

Day Two - Q&A's Q&A's and autograph sessions. )

ETA : All the photos are up you have to click through the links on the site

Well I did intend to take the weekend 'offline' for my birthday and catch up on Monday but at lunchtime yesterday the interwebs broke and we were left with nothing - just a random ping & time out message and three companies all pointing the finger at each other when it came to fixing the effing problem.

That was a long and unbearable 24hours without internet. Not nice. Anyway down to more pleasurable business.

A huge thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes/emails from my flist for my birthday. To [ profile] charmax and [ profile] leviathan101 for their virtual lj gifts - I put on my party hat and drank my pint! To [ profile] rua1412 for the lovely card and wonderful DrHorrible Banners.

To [ profile] acrazywench for visiting Friday night with a Fillion fix of 'Waitress'in hand and for my lovely DVD gift. It was great to catch up and watch Act III of DHSAB with you Saturday morning and cheer together at the sound of the Grrr Arrghhh. I have a CD for you btw.

My community flist is awash with DHSAB - It's been too long since any new Joss productions. Ellie now can sing 'Freezeray' off by heart and J wants to know when the next episode is on, so get on with that will you JW? I've barely scanned lj so I am behind with this and email responses. I will get answers to you all soon.

thanks once again everyone. I felt loved! (and seriously overweight after the chinese meal on Saturday)

Heh,  so the official site was down due to traffic and the knock on effect caused  to go kaput.   We ought to get an invite into the Evil League of Evil.  Anyway bored ol' me decided to go buy a couple of Horrible t-shirts. I've gone for the logo ones - although I may decide that fillion fan extraordinaire [profile] acrazywench may need the shirt with Capt Hammer's face on it.      Can't buy any downloads as I think it is only available on iTunes US :(   I'll just have to wait for the DVD and CD soundtrack.

"Bad Horse" song has now replaced the Freeze ray Song in my head and there's a whole rash of icons/lyrics/screencaps  floating around from the first Act.  Btw the 'it's curtains for you, lacey gently wafting curtains'   reminds me so much of the Python Holy Grail film quote  about  "one day all this will be yours - what? the curtains? "     Hee!  Whedons sure do write funny.

Let's do it all again tomorrow :D

Well apart from early teething troubles with outside US streaming on HULU

Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog
is now up for all the world to see and sing along with.

Awesome doesn't quite cover it.     Spread the word and buy the download.

So a collection of random things in this post - no, acutally there is a tentative link just bear with me.   

Firsty  sorry I missed your birthday last week [ profile] millylicious    hope you had a good day, and all the best to [ profile] bradcpu   today who is celebrating his birthday.  Wishing you lots of cake etc...

*Points to new layout *    See Dr Horrible/Captain Hammer layout.  Check out the streamed episodes here on the 15th, 17th & 19th this month and support the actors/crew etc by buying the download later(plus I hear DVD & T Shirts) . It's a musical comedy web-based show created by the Whedon siblings ( and fiancee )   Nathan Fillion will be singing  which is going to be awesome plus, it by Joss and OMWF rocked so I'm confident.   

Talking of birthdays and musicals - we did something rather rash/expensive  this year to celebrate mine - Royal Opera House Covent Garden, grand tier box, dinner at the Opera restaurant, Le Nozze di Figaro, 5 star production. 

Well it was meant to be on my birthday but the dates got mixed up and we went last Saturday.   I adore Mozart, particularly this Opera which I listen to frequently. I've seen it before but not by a premiere company so I was super excited and it totally exceeded expectations.  I loved their production,  the farcical comedy raised laughter from the audience which was wonderful(& surprising) to hear and the last act got me all teary.   Sublime, truly.    I think this sets a  precendent  so it's possible that will happen next season.    Now what's on at the proms........

This looks as if it going to be so much fun. If you are curious do check it out later this month. I'm sure it will be worth it.


Mwahahaha this way )

  ought to check out Round 9 awards again too, I stupidly forgot to upload a couple of awards and found them missing. Sorry guys and congrats on Rd10. 

 Basically I'm going to have a long hard think about 'where next' for the competition.  I started when I had the luxury of no job  but now it eats into my free time and prevents me from working on my vid & art projects (for what they are worth). Plus there are only so many vids (especially in some fandoms)  you can watch each month without all of it becoming a huge blur, quite honestly  the participants deserve better than that.    At the moment I feel we will have two more rounds and then the BOTB - which may be the final event.    We shall see.   

And the latest thing to rave about.... )
