I know that many people hate this festival day, but I thank my lucky stars that some bloke at work gave me a card 23 years ago, life changing I tell you.

I made some shippy cards - I still feel very rusty in the photoshop department but it'll only improve if I practice!

So this tumblr thing can suck hours out of your day right?   I'm kind of picking random convention photos to post and some banners/cards  I have already made.   I also made a couple of simple pieces the last couple of days to tumble but I thought I would cross post here too.  From my experience so far, tumblr is big on images and small on words but I think that may be as I am not following many peeps/communities over there just yet.

The art work  I see on tumblr is very pretty  - definitely seems to follow a trend/ distinct style of intense colours,  or  sepia monochrome in a portrait format ,   and also plenty o'gifs.  Nice to see they increased the gif limit the ones I make presently are HUGE.

Anyhow I made the River Card for a challenge a long while back over at slayalive. May decide to do other characters just for the heck of it.  The other are new.

And then the new pieces

Vidder Notes: Another and probably the last vidlet this year for the holiday season. I have a longer, multifandom idea I want to work on but it will be a Winter piece and not in time for Christmas.   Firefly has been neglected in the Christmas festivities of vidlets and art - lack of source mainly but it does have some of the sweetest family scenes out of the entire whedonverse - plus Wash the awesome pilot. I picked the chessiest version of this song I could find, it's not laugh out loud funny but has a few touches of humour and I've been indulgent in the final scenes. I shouldn't miss this show as much as I do, they're like long lost family.

So I've finished the final 'character' wallpapers for Firefly. If you missed them when  I posted the others earlier , Simon, River & Book  here    and Wash Kaylee and Jayne here.

I've been very much wearing the browncoat lately what with the recent vids and these wallpapers. I've enjoyed making them and threaten to do something similar for the other whedonverse shows.  But for now I'm all wallpapered out.

I do have some icons to post later in about a week or so, I'll mix the fandoms up a little most likely.

Way back when I was using WMM (haha yes, I remember) I made this vid. I have promised myself for the last couple of years that I would go back and 'redo' with higher quality source, fix those nagging technical faults (no thanks WMM) and change those clips choices that always got to me every time I rewatched it.  Now it's done and here it is, shinier and better. There's a faiir few scenes that I've changed but the essence of the orignal vid remain.  Something that I just had to do.

 When the pc went kaput I transferred some art files to the laptop and started on some wallpapers - I think not being able to 'create' anything made me want to do it more than ever. 

So I bring you 3 Firefly Wallpapers - This time we have Jayne, Kaylee and Wash - I'll do River, Book, Simon next. Then perhaps new Mal, Zoe and Inara ones last.  Older Zoe and Inara walls are here if you're curious.  I think these have turned out quite nicely.

Can you guess mine??

List fifteen of your favorite characters from different fandoms, and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, if they're so inclined.

TV and Film/Book  characters

here they are!  )

I could have picked more than just these - quite a few whedonverse characters were left off the list because I needed to spread the choices  over the fandoms

  Vidder notes: I mused when looking through the source (with much sadness) how much more we could have seen of her had we even had a even full season, not just the kickass stuff but the tender moments and interaction with the rest of the crew. Also the song?  most of the time I pick songs that even after the project is done I can easily listen to them straight away. I think the headphones very likely make it worse but this one? I'd be pleased not to hear it for a month or so....   Anyhow that aside and I hope you enjoy. I didn't post lyrics this time, they're very repetative and quite clear.  Feedback is loved.

I've been trying to tidy up my tags and I noticed that there are a few wallpapers that I may have put on my site or posted over at [ profile] still_grrr  but not in my own journal *doh*   So here they are.  Where there are various resolutions links are next to the thumbnail.  If just in one resolution click the thumbnail.

Hey Hey - I'm back from the Convention and I bring teaser photos and a brief run down of events.

On to the shiny guests :


Seriously witty, charming and entertaining people. Tony Head giggling at Alan's antics and face pulling during the photo sessions ( I swear there's a different expression in every photo I've seen) Robin Sachs, charming and a very very naughty man. Sweet and funny Jewel and vivacious Stephanie.  Some more teaser photos:

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!

I'm back.

Wonderful holiday, lots of lazing in the sun by the pool (melt! ) a sprinkling of wandering around medieval tuscan towns and cities,  and some much needed one on one time with my dear friend.   She really had an annus horribilus in 2008 and I found myself wishing that I wasn't so remote, so I could be more supportive. I think she has turned the corner now and have promised to keep in touch via email more often.

I did have limited internet access so I would briefly check emails but didn't have time to respond to lj things other than to scan posts briefly. I did notice that there are a whole swathe of new VVC vids from my flist that I want to watch.  I am looking forward to those  - One that I did manage to see when I was away and I can recommend to any vidder/fan/browncoat/ Firefly fan is[ profile] bradcpu and [ profile] laurashapiro  collaboration 'Hard Sun'.   This works on many levels as a statement on fandom/vidding and the show. It's is beautiful, touching and should not be missed.

I also  read some very insightful/interesting  posts from my  flist  on the 'vidding fandom/community/ Vividcon' late last night - perhaps not the best idea as I was tired and there was a touch of 'huh?' as if I'd missed something -  but that aside  some interesting observations were made and it was good for getting those thinky thoughts going.(sorry, but that is about as descriptive as I can manage right now). And as for vidding  I will go back to the next vid project I was tweaking before holiday, it's Firefly to a brief song and hopefully I can rediscover the vidding momentum I had a month or so ago.

Heee! some finales last night eh?  I love the caplocks, incoherent posts from my flist (thanks for putting spoilers behind a cut ) I'll most likely get the SPN one tonight and watch it.  Bones I'll watch live here in a couple of weeks (or cave in and acquire it). Watched the pilot of 'Lie To Me' last night - Tim Roth is wonderful.  It was good but I was tired and I flagged a little at the end.

Just for the record - I really enjoyed the Dollhouse Finale.  I need to watch the whole thing again from scratch,  I do hope it gets another season or at least a few more episodes.  Ever the optimist with the glass half full,  I guess after Monday we'll know.  I also wish to say that I would like TSSC to be renewed too and don't understand the haters from either fandom (who cares who broke Fox's voicemail- does it really matter)  You can like both shows, you know.   (Oh and Chuck - I bought sandwiches!)  Is that too many wishes for the 'renewal fairy' to handle?

Here's the new sketch of Summer Glau as River. (I used an old Firefly promo shot so she's very young )  Summer told me that she hadn't seen this particular picture before - and then I pointed out that I had just 'done' it this weekend and the realised that it was original.  She is very gracious, even when she was clearly nursing a poor throat.  Her friends (who had come to the Con with her) came and found me in the autograph room so they could have a good look at it too :)
