it's time to nominate stuff for [community profile] festivids . i considered nominating some fandoms, but this year they want you to sign up on their site to do it. i don't want to go though the bother of signing up for yet another site.

so if you are signed up or soon will be, could you do me a favor & put some of mine on your list if you fall short of the 10 fandom limit? 

i think they qualify & don't have many fan vids;
NCIS: new orleans
the quest (2014)
ghost adventures
quantum leap
golden girls

and if you're a vidder & get one of these as your assignment, i have some ideas.

archersangel: (bad situation)
apparently back in 2014 and why we're just finding out now is beyond me.

info from about 500 million accounts like revealed names, email addresses, phone numbers, birth dates and, in some cases, security questions and answers (don't anyone remember what their security Q & A is?) where taken. Yahoo urged users to change their passwords if they haven't since 2014. well i have so i'm not going to bother.

my brother says "they" tell you to make a "secure" password because that way it's harder to crack with the stuff hackers use, but then the hackers just go & hack the main site and get your info anyway. so what's the point?

archersangel: (weird quiet girl)
1. that whole: "yes, brody leaving was out of nowhere, but we will get over it." was totally directed at the fans.

2. percy touring civil war sites seems to be a nod to the actress being in a few episodes of a civil war era show: mercy street. (i think is said in a previous post that she was in underground, but i was mistaken)

3. pride's bête noire has the last name of hamilton, so someone besides me must be thinking of some sort of NCIS: NOLA/hamilton fusion-thing. (even though i know little about the hamilton musical) despite the fact that this hamilton might just turn out to be a big, bad guy some day.

archersangel: (filler)
so far i'm not liking the new FBI woman.

i don't know why when they have new a character join the team in these kind of situations, it's always some abrasive character. a by-the-book type or someone who gets assigned to the team when they don't want to be reassigned.
archersangel: (like the movies)
and during one mission he opened a container & it had tow items, i forget wht the first one was, but the second was a tribble. he said: "i'm not taking that. the tribble can go fu** itself." he paused and added; "actually i think that's how they reproduce."

it's a "free to play" thing he's doing through the internet via the PS4 & dispite this game having been out for years, it has issues.

the game has a lot of things for the trek fan to pick up on; p'jem, orion syndicate, gorn, the aforementioned tribbles & the enterprise-d among others.

you can customize the hell out of your character. he's playing as a human, but i'm sure there's a boat-load of options for the klingon & romulan too.
archersangel: (USA sheep)
you can track your orders, both outgoing to you & returning to them. apparently it has to do with shipping costs, because the e-mail i got said that they weigh the books on their end & then print the labels (one for sending it to you & one for you to return it) but this messes up things for people who get two or more 2-book orders because you have to send the 2 you get back together.

for me this is a good thing because: 1. i don't have to remember to sign-in & check the option of i received them on a certain date or mailed them in on a certain date. and 2. i can see where the book are when i have sent them in like a week ago & still didn't get the e-mail that they got them.

but it's also bad because i'm checking 2 or 3 times a day to see where they are & googeling the town name to see where it is in relation to my location or where booksfree is.

from takebackhalloween.com's about page:
So what’s this all about, anyway?

First of all, Take Back Halloween isn’t a store. We’re not selling any of this stuff. We’re a resource guide: we come up with the costume designs, explain what you’ll need to pull off the look, and provide links to where you can buy the various components.

Our overall approach is about creating great costumes with stuff that is readily available: either already in your closet, on sale at eBay or some other retailer, or in stock at a costume store. No sewing! See our “how to use this website” page for a quick rundown on how it works.

What we mean by “taking it back”

We love Halloween. We really love Halloween. We think it’s cool that there’s one day a year when people can dress up as anything they want. What we don’t think is cool is that increasingly women are only supposed to dress up as one thing: “Sexy _____” (fill in the blank). Sexy Nurse, Sexy Cowgirl, Sexy whatever.

the have four categories: glamor grrls, goddesses & legends, notable women and queens.

many interesting ideas, but you may have to answer the question of "who are you supposed to be?" a lot.


*i know it's only the middle part of september, but it may take time to get stuff together for these & have time to make them.
archersangel: (IDIC)

1. Where were you on September 8, 1966? Did you watch the first episode of Star Trek that evening? If you are too young -- did your parents watch it?
i was too young. i don't think my parents did.

2. Who is your favorite Star Trek captain, and why?
probably janeway. i think she did ballanced the leader role with being a regular person better.

3. Who is your favorite Star Trek character of all time, and why?
i don't think i have one. but mccoy (TOS & i hate that was have to specify) is pretty close.

4. Which Star Trek series is your favorite, and why?
possibly voyager for daring to have a female captain as well as being set in the delta quadrant & not relying on the usual star trek aliens.

5. Which Star Trek movie is your favorite, and why?
either the voyage home or first contact. no particular reasons why.

I grew up watching the TOS reruns, but after awhile none of the local stations had them. I was so excited when TNG was announced, because there was finally going to be new Star Trek! I was less enthusiastic about the shows that followed, but eventually became a loyal viewer.

I had rented or had seen on TV all of the movies at one time or another. Generations was the first one I saw in theaters. Insurrection was the last.
I had read or or two novels, but never go into them. But one day I found like 21 (mostly TOS & TNG & a couple of DS9) at the local Goodwill which triggered a years-long quest to read as many as possible, which continues to this day. If anyone is interested, here's a like of the ones I like.

I've seen all 5 series captains (and a few other Trek people) at Dragon-Con in 2009 & 2010, but didn't get autographs because of the cost. If anyone is interested, my post on Dragon-Con 2009 & 2010, go down to the bottom for the first posts. Feel free to comment there if you want.

....a few days ago & have been cross-posting some, not all, of my entries from DW.  which will be true of future entries on this journal.

an odd thing that happens, sometimes when an entry pops up over there it has an icon that matches a entry tag (EX: star trek or star wars) but not always. weird.

anyway i'm [livejournal.com profile] archersangel over there if you are ther yourself & want to friend me or just want to look at where there is.

archersangel: (bananas)
tecnally, i'd be convirting my comment account (i think that's what it's called) to a regular account.

i'm not leaving DW, it's just that some communities will not let you post unless you have an LJ account. i guess several years & 6,000+ comments don't matter to them. also the blogger site keeps giving me trouble with logging in. one time the converted my .com to .nl, which is the netherlands. <_<

on that note: does anyone know if there's such a thing a retroactive cross-posting? like if i go & edit an entry here at DW is there an option to cross-post to LJ?

i missed the date but the 23rd was the one-year anniversary of my gallbladder removal. (kept telling myself it's coming soon & then "soon" happened faster than i thought)

things are doing well. i haven't been getting major heartburn or ingestion (the anesthesiologist said that would happen when he asked if i had those problems) but i've had nights where i've eaten too much or the wrong combo of things & thought it might all make a return appearance.

once or twice i've gotten an aching pain in the upper middle part of my gut where i used to have a terrible cramp that was the first sign of what turned out to be gallbladder attacks. so i wonder, if the gallbladder is gone, what is hurting? luckily the pain is mild & doesn't last very long.

3. What do you have left to do before summer ends?
i did have a "to-do" list.

4. Has it been a good summer for you?
no.

5. Have you started Christmas shopping yet?

the good news is that i got my history & bookmarks!

the bad news is that when you click on the address bar, it doesn't highlight what's there so you can type something new. you have to do control+A & then type. i don't get search suggestions when typing in the search bar at the top of the window. the font is different & other stuff that annoys me.

i may never guest used to this.

archersangel: (confused)
my brother switched our desktop over from windows-whatever-number to linux mint.
i don't have my bookmarks or search history & it wouldn't except my log-in when we set it up because it was too short. i've had it since we got this computer in like 2004! *sigh* this is going to take some getting used to.

On the same day CBS went on the defensive about the lack of diversity on its fall schedule, "Star Trek: Discovery" executive producer Bryan Fuller made clear that his new series will not have that problem.
Fuller announced Wednesday that the new show will feature a female lead character and honor the franchise's history of inclusion.

"'Star Trek' started with a wonderful expression of diversity in its cast. You had a Russian with a black woman and an Asian man amongst a Vulcan, which is a different kind of diversity," Fuller told reporters at a panel for the show at the Television Critics Association press tour. "We're absolutely continuing that tradition."
Fuller also said the new series will "absolutely" have a gay character.

3. Do you like cider or apples or both?
apples

4. Do you like cream or milk or both?
milk

5. Do you like zucchini bread or zucchini or both?
i used to like fried zucchini, but i haven't had any in years.
