1. Happy birthday to [personal profile] lost_spook!

2. [livejournal.com profile] whatwasthatbook is closing, over on Livejournal.

I truly hope they end up on Dreamwidth, with all posts imported. Just in case they don’t? I’ll be going through all the tags and jotting down particular found books that I’m interested in locating, just in case they delete the group.

It’s one of the few (well, that still had posts coming in) I was really still keeping track of on Livejournal these days.

3. Moments before composing this entry, I also heard that Timothy Omundson suffered a stroke while at Tampa Airport. So best wishes go out to him. He was one of my favorite parts of Galavant (I didn’t watch much of Psych, but when I did I loved him there).

If you're reading this on the Dreamwidth side, you'll see I added an icon of King Richard from Galavant, since I was strangely lacking in related icons.
calliopes_pen: (lost_spook Dracula's brides)
I am truly beyond thrilled with all that I received for [community profile] fandom_stocking this year.

To sum up, I received:

-Two beautiful banners/book covers from [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook, for the Yuletide story I wrote for her, as well as two icons (and two others to share because they’re fantastic) for Dracula (1968). I’ll see if I can put the second banner in without wrecking anything on Ao3 once I figure out the coding and upload it elsewhere. I'm not sure about creating a third chapter over there just to show them off, but it's an option.

-17 Supergirl icons from [personal profile] medie, and 2 Supergirl related icons from [personal profile] tarlanx.
-3 Dark Shadows icons from [personal profile] liadtbunny.
-A great Methos centered Highlander drabble from [personal profile] misbegotten.
-A book recommendation (which I’ll track down soon) from [personal profile] john_amend_all.
-A massive helping of book recommendations from [personal profile] rebecca_selene. I will be tracking down a large amount of them, if not all of them, in all likelihood.
-Links to Halloween focused stuff from [personal profile] valarltd
-Happy New Year from [profile] falcon_hours, [personal profile] knowmefirst and [personal profile] twinsarein.

I’m uploading as many icons as I can to Dreamwidth, and saving others so I can switch them out at another date if I want. To all that are on my circle/friends list and provided something, thank you again.

I’ll look through the collection further on Ao3 in a little while.
calliopes_pen: (blairprovence goodbye Sarah Jane)
William Peter Blatty passed away last night at the age of 89. May he rest in peace. He is likely most famous for being the author of The Exorcist. He wrote and directed The Exorcist III (1990), and worked on the scripts for comedies like A Shot In The Dark (1964).

While I have never truly had a desire to read that particular novel, or watch the adaptation of it, I am interested in The Exorcist III. Perhaps eventually, I’ll give it a watch.

There was a brief period in 2013 when I desperately needed some older style humor in my life. I developed an oddly short-lived fondness for The Pink Panther films, and enjoyed A Shot In The Dark in particular.
calliopes_pen: (perletwo_ljcozy Illyana says read)
Tanith Lee passed away on May 24th, at the age of 67, after a battle with breast cancer. May she rest in peace. While I have never read a single book of hers, I plan to rectify that very soon. I located ebook copies of Red As Blood, and Sabella, since I never even spotted a single copy of anything by her in a used bookstore in years of searching.

Betsy Palmer passed away from natural causes at the age of 88. May she rest in peace. She was best known as Mrs. Pamela Voorhees, Jason’s mother, in the first Friday the 13th.

Alberto De Martino has passed away at the age of 85. May he rest in peace. MST3K fans may know two of his movies: Puma Man and Operation Double 007. While I loved the former, I haven’t yet seen the latter episode, so I’ll be tracking it down.
calliopes_pen: (regency_cate No books no soul)
Sir Terry Pratchett has passed away at the age of 66, after a battle with Alzheimer’s. May he rest in peace. I heard the news just as I was about to re-read Good Omens for the first time in years…so I’ll be doing that later. He will be missed.
calliopes_pen: (gabenut Chuck rolling pin use it)
(Posting yesterday’s and today’s now, while I have a few minutes between helping with gathering everything we'll need to take to Nashville and locating a hotel that’s actually got a vacancy outside of just Thursday—-and doesn’t have bed bugs. The Bed Bug Registry is incredibly useful with that last bit.

Thank you to everyone that's sent their well wishes.)

How Was SFSketchFest/Best of RiffTrax? I managed to go to the Manos screening. Due to an awful movie (one of the Wayans brothers spoofing the Paranormal Activity franchise—I walked in during what seemed to be the guy being jealous as he watched someone loudly having sex with a ghost; not being interested in watching this moment with Dad, we turned and left, opting to stay in the hall until it finished) running too long, Rifftrax wouldn’t have had time for the trivia/joke cards at the start. So the manager let everyone vote—we decided even if it went overly long, we wanted it. Things were fine, until midway through one of the shorts—the power in the whole theater went out. 5-10 minutes later, it came back, and we started where we left off. Someone that had been there for the previous showing (and its interruption by tornado and power outage) said it had happened at that same point, too. The manager (who also personally went in and cleaned up after the previous viewing of that movie) came in and apologized.

Unfortunately, the heat didn’t come back on. Instead, about 20 minutes before the end, the air conditioning was going full blast—so I had my coat on. Got out around 9:45 PM, and made it home shortly before the sleet (which the Weather Channel has dubbed Winter Storm Khan—feel free to insert your own Kirk scream here) started. Outside of all of that, I have to say it was great.
