Little Red Never Learns, Things That Are Gleee, Vid Recs and Subliminal Messaging  
I think I need to stop stockpiling open tabs of livejournal things I plan to respond to later, because invariably the browser will crash or a pop-up will override or my iTunes will start shrieking the same note over and over and require computer rebooting...

Anyway, not ignoring you on purpose. If you were anxiously waiting for me to do something that I didn't do, let me know.

Things That Are Gleee:

1) I got to hang out with sekilara and froggoddess last night! YAY YAY YAY. Kappa Girls Are... forever. There's just nothing as awesome as that. *LOVES* saidshe, is everything okay? We missed you!

2) stellar_dust sent me BOOKS in the mail! Geeky books! STAR TREK BOOKS! *fanatical gleee*

3) There were gleeeful comments on Veracity, my Sheppard/Weir PTSD fic. I feel like my brain is still partly lodged in that universe. I suppose that's the nature of working with longer fanfics, maybe... but yeah. A sequel or anything like it would totally ruin the fic, I think, so I'll just play around in my own head with them being pathetically cute and clingy to offset all the ANGST.

4) VID RECS, OMG, VIDS:

If you like Sparky...

Things Don't Always Turn Out That Way by ohshocking (vid clips through "instinct")

I have been gleeefully squeeeing about this vid and have had it on loop since I downloaded it. It's possible a good chunk of that is my apparent love of "The Calling" (I love them forever and a half because their song was in the pre-series Enterprise promo that made me hyper ALL SUMMER LONG. Good times.), but the clip selection is freaking adorable, and It MELTS MEEEE. After long commentspam with anr, I'm a bit swoony over the idea that Shep is all In Love Liek Whoa with Lizzie and she just hasn't quite realized it yet. (Can I tack that on to my Kink Week requests from last week? John unrequitedly in love with Lizzie. Yeah, I thought I was sick of that stuff after other UST shows... but... nope, never. Kink me, baby.)

Speaking of Enterprise and anr...

No Need To Argue by anr

Zomg. I had no idea that vids could look this pretty. I know nothing about vids, of course, but from where I'm sitting, there is MAGIC afoot in the editing here. Things fade! And appear in other things! I can forgive her for making Trip and T'Pol all angstydoomed for the sheer prettiness. Yes. Wow.

And we're back to Little Red's Nonsexual Fandom Kink Week...

Suddenly I See by lilwitchy

OH MY GOD. It is Sparky, and the CUTEST THING EVER. I think my all-time favorite part of the Sheppard/Weir relationship is how she makes him a better man, and this vid hits that like nothing else. SQUEEE. If I keep raising awareness of such totally awesome fannish kinks, people are going to write me fic... right? Right?

And in the overachiever division...

phrenitis, who joins anr this week in our list of Fandom Triathletes (fanfic, icons/fanart, vids), attempts to MAKE ME CHOOSE between two new vids, both fantastic. Strange And Beautiful is Sheppard/Weir and falls under the category Things That Make Me Go Ooooooh. It violates my John Must Fall FIRST! kink, but makes up for it with a beautiful whimsicalness that made me watch it a few times in a row just to really get it -- it's like the story gets deeper every time. It's making me rethink my kink, dammit! Pump It is an SG1/SGA crossover, chock full of spoilers from this season, and SO MUCH FUN, OMG. Jen's sense of timing is awesome, and perfect for a fast-paced actiony vid like this. Watch watch watch.

... And now I'll go finish my zeropointsnark recap. OMG. *throws you vids in the meantime to entertain you*

Seriously. I tend to avoid fanvids because I've had so many baaaad experiences with terrible aspect ratio, bad quality, bad songs, blah blah blah. But this one made me go "huh, there is such a thing as a good fanvid! Squee!"

And now I'm running off to try your other recs, because where there's one good fannish thing, there must be more!

I am all about vids lately. I avoided them for the longest time, but now I am OBSESSED. I will forgive a lot for a good song and clever clip selection, but a few things drive me nuts, and squished images from weird aspect ratios are waaaay at the top of that list.

You must, must, must watch mspooh's vids (her site), for they are of teh brilliant.

Alas, I totally forget where so many of the things in my vid folder come from, and so it's hard to rec. But if you have never seen the "cartoon heroes" vid, I will haaaaave to upload it for you, because it's the funniest thing of all time, omg.

Errr, fear not! I was just thinking today about how AWESOME our random geek weekends were when you were only ONE day of driving away!

*love*

Wheee! Thank you. :) I might not friend you back right away because I'm a little overwhelmed by the internet and omglife right now, but you're totally welcome to friend me if that doesn't bother you. All my fandom stuff is unlocked.

I so love that icon whenever I see it.

Er... what? Pooh and I are the only ones with posting powerz because we are power hungry fascists because we're the only ones who post the Atlantis recaps. You should still be able to post comments, though. But oooh, you've given me a good idea about putting a link list somewhere -- can you give me a good central page to access your recaps from?

Phrenitis: thanks babe (_mysteria_)phrenitis on September 1st, 2005 08:53 pm (UTC)
It violates my John Must Fall FIRST! kink

Ehehehe, thought it might do that. *evils* Was actually supposed to be the other way around when I heard the song, but Elizabeth just wanted to love him, dammit!

have actually been working on a vid for your newly discovered kink, and a "stargate girls omg!" one, but i am SO slow. and procrastinate. and um. yeah. [/end footnote]

But much squee over your recs, thank you. I lessthanthree you (zomg new favorite phrase evar)!! *glomps*

Yay, they got there! Did you like my over-enthusiastic taping job? ;D

*will watch vids tomorrow, when people aren't sleeping*

BTW: I read Veracity, and thought it was *outstanding*, and forgot to leave feedback, as usual. d-:
Little Red: gleee! - nenyamylittleredgirl on September 6th, 2005 02:06 am (UTC)
I did! Although I especially loved that your overenthusiastic tape came off in one piece and all the books fell out, which was awesome, because then I could see them all at once. :)

So thank you SO MUCH for BOOK gleee and feedback gleee and GLEEE ALL AROUND! :)

crashing browser
Uh,maybe I shouldn't tell you this for fear of piling more open tabs with LJ stuff on you, but....:
Mozilla Firefox is a browser that has manymany really good extensions to it. One of my favorites is called "SessionSaver". And yes, it does what it implies: "Magically restores your last browsing session".
Little Red: ethermylittleredgirl on September 6th, 2005 02:06 am (UTC)
Re: crashing browser
That sounds UNBELIEVABLY useful. OMG. I will have to investigate that immediately. Thank you!
anr: triptpol takemyhandanr on September 5th, 2005 09:47 pm (UTC)
Aww! You are so very lovely to pimp my vid. *smooch*
Little Red: trek - trip/t'pol i love you - ashismmylittleredgirl on September 6th, 2005 02:08 am (UTC)
It's the least I could do after, errr, not leaving feedback for it. I wanted to watch it again to make sure I got it all... and then watch it again to make REALLY sure... and then again for no reason at all... and then I got really fucking depressed about how THE LOVE IS OVER, OH NOES and had to watch some Sparky for a while. ;)

Muahaha...so, now that I have you thinking of fun geek weekends, I'm trying to get my dad to narrow down when he will be on east coast and maybe when I can talk you into coming here? (*will always use any chance to try to get together with you*)

*so much love*
