Links!

Hi, you've reached the Journal of Starrylizard (aka Lizzie).
These days I'm around, but don't post that often (or just occasionally ramble about the real world under a Friends Lock). I sort of randomly jump into fandom for a few months, then disappear again depending on what life is throwing at me from minute to minute. If you can handle that I'm always happy to make new friends. See the sidebar (and/or below) for links to my fannish works.


I've moved my links up here so they're easier to find.

My fannish stuff:
Fan videos (various fandoms) | Supernatural fan fiction| Stargate Atlantis fan fiction | Other fan fiction | Fanfiction.net | The Fridge door | [livejournal.com profile] sunnygecko (my icon journal)

My communities and communities I help to run: (Note: Some of these are basically just archives now. People lost interest, etc.)
[livejournal.com profile] vid_the_grid: A multifandom prompt table challenge for vidders | [livejournal.com profile] spnvidrecs: Supernatural vid recs |
[livejournal.com profile] spn_sceneit: Supernatural vidding resources | [livejournal.com profile] merlin_sceneit: Creative Merlin resources |

Although I'm pretty lazy about making actual icon posts, they are generally up for grabs. Credit always appreciated. Also I'm all for a bit of friendly constructive criticism, or feedback of any kind really, on any of my fannish works, so don't be shy. Tell me what you think.

I also find it really fun prompting other people to write fic. So, if anyone is stuck and they want a prompt/s just give me a poke. I don't mind at all if you don't end up using it.

Just a quick note to say I have a duplicate account under the same username at DW (and have for ages).
Please feel free to make friends with it if you're moving or just because you'd like to. Podlizzie is also duplicated over there.
Looks like I'll be using the accounts again to keep up to date with all the communities that are migrating etc.

What was in the terms??

Hi Guys,
I hit a button to agree to the new terms very late at night...now I can't find them to look at them.
What is in them that has all the comms moving to DW? It's a mass exodus all over again.

*wibble*

The Flash/Supergirl Musical

The Flash/Supergirl Musical episode was awesome! There is so much talent in those DC TV show casts. I hadn't realised there were so many musical theater graduates, I mean other than the ex-Glee cast members. Just yes! Adorable and perfect and just what I needed tonight.

Did that just happen?

Supergirl just referenced Stargate and Star Trek (Red Shirt) in the same episode! Bless my big geeky heart!

Ha!

So today a lady I'm getting to know at work said something to the effect that she'd never met anyone "geeky" like me. She then qualified that with "In a good way, like you aren't embarrassed. You even where t-shirts and stuff. I don't know many people like that."

Oh yeah, happy to own it. :)

Gosh I haven't posted holiday photos or anything here. Bad Lizzie. Must do that. Hope you're all well! :D

I'm rewatching Fringe

I forgot how much I love this show, especially the early seasons. Such nonsense. Such fun. :D
I love Olivia and the Bishops so much... and early Charlie was the best Charlie. I'm well into S2 now, Peter just found out where he's from. Dun dun dun.


In other unrelated, non-TV thoughts - anyone got any tips on figuring out what employment one might be good at, or want to move into later in life?
I'm a tad stumped. Thoughts welcome.
I was seriously considering moving, and it's not fully ruled out, but today I came to the realisation that I don't think I like this job enough anymore to actually want to remain in it, let alone move just to do so.

Gamers query

I'm not really a gamer, I wanted to try this particular game. It's a short sort of non-linear style game that piqued my interest a while back and now that I technically have a "gaming" laptop I thought why not?

Anyhow, I found you have to dl the game via a site called Steam. So I signed up and purchased it.

The thing is, the game is quite large (it's talking quite sometime to dl). So how do gamers deal with that? I assume when I'm finished I could delete it and still dl it again from Steam at any time? But any progress would be lost if I did that, like Steam would only hold the game files, yeah? Do you just move the files to an external drive when you're not playing?

I'm just curious as anything game-y is totally new to me.

Thanks!
Xx

I have a new laptop! AND Nanowrimo anyone?

Ahhhhh new laptop. Yay! Been wanting one for a while and finally got myself and my money together. In order to get close to the basic specs I wanted, I was made to buy a "gaming" laptop. LOL. I don't think that was a thing the last time I bought one. My old laptop had the equivalent, for the time, of these specs and it didn't need a glowing keyboard. Ha!

So now, maybe I'll be able to vid again. Trying to figure out the versions of Sony Vegas is doing my head in though. The latest Pro version like I used to use is outta my price range. Thinking the other version will easily suit my vidding needs though. Will download the 1 month trial once the muse hits.

Is anyone looking to do Nanowrimo? I'm seriously tempted, especially now that I have a laptop (i.e. means). But most of my novel-shaped ideas are not very well formed. ;)

Why hello there

Hey, been awhile, but that seems to be my pattern here. *sigh*

So I've started watching and re-watching westerns lately, old/new, TV/movie, spaghetti/more traditional, whatever. The thing that's struck me (apart from a bit of an early Clint Eastwood crush) is that the characters are so familiar. I mean apart from the Magnificent Seven TV show I've rarely watched Westerns at all, but I'm getting a kick out of how many of the shows I watch are like Westerns just transposed onto a new setting - space, the future, a fantasy setting - they're all still good vs evil, cocky gunslingers and evil greedy bad guys... It's wonderful and has given me so many ideas for writing. I know it shouldn't be a revelation to me, but somehow watching Westerns these past few weeks has cemented in my brain the similarities between so many of the genres, characters and shows I like and given me a bigger picture of things. I'm in love.

I think I need to watch the new Magnificent Seven movie next. Hopefully someone will go with me to the movies. My Western kick started before I even knew that movie was coming out. Timing! (They better not have messed with the theme music!) ;)

Watching The Man From U.N.C.L.E. on Netflix.
Was the original TV series as amusingly random as this movie?  Would love to watch some of it.

SPN S11

Well that was a weird finale. Different.
Quite enjoyed this season.  All the monster of the week episodes made it feel homey somehow.

SPN S11 watch

My SPN S11 watch got derailed a few months back for... reasons. Computer ones mostly.
Anyhoo, finally figured out I was up to episode 7, so I'll get back to that. But I'm so forgetful. Can someone fill me in on why (if we know) Sam possible spoiler I guess ) again? Thanks buddies. This is the best place to ask such things. I know you all not only watch it, but are like "how does she not know that"? Ha!

Random Bucket List Bits

Bucket list ideas will be added to this post as I think of them and crossed off with glee.
Coloured lines are underway. They may take a while (especially if anyone is gonna teach me to sing!).

Bucket list ahoy )
