Wow, Dream Daddy fandom has already sent a fanartist into hiding by sending her death threats, all because she drew the daddies genderbent. The DD twitter account commented on it.

Why is fandom like this now? :\

Last week's fan mail was a pet ring from Ai No Kusabi!

Oikawa Tooru is a very busy guy. When he's not training hard for his volleyball matches or teasing his adorable kouhai, he is dealing with all of the gifts from his fans! Always looking to please them, he writes a thank you note to the sender of every single gift he has received. However, sometimes the gifts come unsigned, including the one he has just received! Can you help him figure out where he needs to send the thank you letter?
Where does today's fan mail come from? )

Thanks to an audience poll, this is the free epic for the July 4, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It's spillover from the June 6, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] siliconshaman. It also fills the "public places" square in my 5-29-17 card for the Pride Bingo fest. This poem belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.

Today I found the funniest nerd sex joke I have ever encountered. It was written on a throw pillow: "Na-ma-ste ... in bed." At first glance, it looks like a simple pun on "-ste" and "stay." However, the ending puts it into the category of "... in bed" jokes. What made it so funny that I cracked up when I heard someone reading it aloud is: namaste is Sanskrit for "the god in me sees the god in you." ... in bed. ROTFLMAO!

 June Foray has passed away.  She played Rocky the Squirrel and hundreds of other characters.

I guess she wanted to celebrate her 100th birthday at GreatCon.  Because who wouldn't?

Three former aides to President Obama — Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, and Tommy Vietor — started a media empire they named "Crooked Media," a hat-tip to Donald Trump. Their flagship podcast is Pod Save America, a freewheeling conversation about politics, the press, and the challenges posed by the Trump presidency.

Hang out at [community profile] podsaveamerica to discuss this podcasts and others by Crooked Media - Pod Save the People, Pod Save the World, Lovett or Leave It, and With Friends Like These.

In this community, we'll have discussion posts about each podcast. Talk about the guests, the conversations, whatever grievances were aired during the ads (lol). We'll also have posts about targeted activism. For example, during Resistance Recesses, you can discuss in the comments if/what you did. (The podcasts themselves frequently suggest specific action items for listeners.)


Listen to all of the podcasts, or just 1 or 2. No pressure.

I'm heading to the campground this weekend, just for an afternoon.

My dad wants me there.

I'm afraid he'll talk about my accomplishments. I don't feel very accomplished.

I enjoy going on WC3 and #dreamwidth irc in the evening.

Since we're at the last post for the month, it's time for list revision. You are free to look over your list and remove anything that you've realized isn't working for you. There is nothing wrong with keeping all your bunnies, of course, but it is also okay to let go. We all grow and change and moving on is a thing that happens.


This is also a weekly check-in! You do not have to check in, of course, but if you would like to comment on the last week, feel free!


Deadlines! I always offer to give deadlines and I mean it! The few times I've given deadlines to people, I've put a sticky note up on the wall by my desk and done a couple PMs as reminders. Other options include a sticky 'deadlines!' post on the community if members would be comfortable with that. (Or any combination of things...)

Do you have something you think you'd be more motivated to work on if you had a deadline for it?

If so, mention it in your comment, when you'd like your deadline to be (or I can pick something), and how you'd prefer it to be administered (community sticky, private PMs/sticky note, other, all of the above?), etc. There would, of course, be no penalty or guilt if the deadline doesn't happen. It's a hectic time of year for a lot of people and I only want to offer gentle nudges in the rear, not stress.

We went to see Spiderman today. It was a painful-to-watch paean to the misery of modern adolescence, Tony Stark's A+ parenting, and the infinite breadth of human stupidity. >_< The characters I liked best? The bad guys. They were hard-working citizens who got screwed out of jobs that were legally contracted as theirs. So they decided to do something else, by selling alien equipment. See, this is what happens when you fuck people over. It makes me want to go write Beach Hero, but I've got other stuff I'm trying to finish.

Saw it VOSTFR 3D.

Way back when I first saw the trailer for this movie, I went HOLY SHIT THEY'RE ADAPTING L'AMBASSADEUR DES OMBRES? THAT'S MY FAVOURITE. Well. I was right, but also, I was wrong.

It has a lot similarities with L'ambassadeur des Ombres, but some major changes make it a story with a different theme/message. I'm not saying the new story has a bad theme/message -- it's a good message and I can understand the reasoning behind the changes -- but it is 100% a different message. Idk, the original Ambassadeur des Ombres comic (especially the ending!) blew my tiny mind when I read it as a child and this movie would not have. Although these changes gave us the opening scene, set to Bowie's Space Oddity, which is pretty lovely.

It's a decent movie, I guess, but it's a bad adaptation.

For example, the movie implies Laureline is from the future, which NO. The really cool thing about Laureline is that she's from the mid-Middle Ages, circa 1000CE, and used Valérian as her ticket out of that hellhole. Then she becomes a space-time cop. She is the best. Also she's a redhead.

Not sure why the Shingouz go by a different name. That seems like a pointless change.

In a way the changes -- Laureline's hair colour, the names (not how you say Valérian, Alpha vs Point central), etc -- made it easier to think of this as its own thing, rather than an adaptation.

I came out of the movie shipping Laureline/Bubble the most out of everything. I did not ship Laureline/Valérian at all. I would ship Laureline/Neza first (he recognised her temper, hahaha).

I was kind of really disappointed that Laureline seemed to be one of only two women in the Earth military. Nice future there :/ There are some vaguely sexist moments that rubbed me the wrong way, as well.

GOOD STUFF:
  • BUBBLE WAS GREAT. Bring back Bubble for the sequel!
  • The heist was pretty cool.
  • THE VISUALS ARE AMAZING.
In conclusion, good visuals, bad adapatation, decent-ish movie.
