Because now we need something mindless and silly and fun to balance out all the other stuff, I'd just like to say OMG THE MUPPET MOVIE OPENS IN THEATERS TODAY I AM SO EXCITED!!!11!!!1!

Ahem. I have always loved the Muppets, all throughout childhood and up until now. I was heartbroken when pieces of the company were sold off, one by one, during the early-to-mid oughties - and subsequently gleeful when they bought back pieces, though not quite what they were. I've been dying for more Muppet media, and I have to admit I'm going to be sad now that the hype has culminated in the release date. My inbox has been filled with youtube updates of Muppet promotions, and my twitter feed (thanks to @MuppetsStudio and @ToughPigs) has been filled with fun news articles and things. I don't want it to stop! Ah well.

I'm sharing a few of my favorite Muppet/Jason Segel related things. :D

-Clips of Jason Segel hosting Saturday Night Live with special guests The Muppets! I recorded last week's SNL, and it was awesome for three reasons: 1) MUPPETS; 2) Jason Segel is actually the most adorable man that's ever lived; 3) Florence and the Machine were the musical guests. Oh, Flo. You so crazy. My favorite of the three clips is #2 (the "REALLY?!" skit), mainly because Seth looked like he was having a really good time. XD However, if you look closely in the last skit (#3), you can see Flo in the background as a Massachusetts bar patron. I'm endlessly amused by this.

-American Way Magazine scans. I've read a lot of promotionals and articles over the last several months related to this movie, but this one is my favorite. This is the one that won me over to the sheer adorability that is Jason Segel. They're high-quality scans, and it's a really wonderful read.

-Bakerella: The Muppets Cake Pops. Guys! Recipe and instructions for making 5 Muppet cake pops! I was looking forward to my nephew coming to visit me this week, and had planned on making a big deal out of spending a day goofing around in the kitchen making these cake pops before taking him to see the movie. Well, he isn't coming now, but I MIGHT MAKE THESE ANYWAY. Because they're adorable and fun. I'm definitely printing the instructions, anyway.

And, finally, this - because it's just too cute:

Jason Segel and Kermit the Frog's original video inviting Amy Adams to be in Disney's The Muppets.

This is the greatest thing I've ever seen in my entire life:

Part of me is thinking, "Wait, you mean it's only been a month since Dragon*Con?" and the other part is going, "OMG, how has this month gone by so fast?" Time. She is a funny, fickle thing.

Anyhow, back in 2009 a film crew wandered around D*C and made a little documentary called "Four Days at Dragon*Con." Since then, the hour-long documentary has won an Emmy, been broadcast around the US on PBS, and is now up in its entirety on PBS Video. For those interested in watching, which I do in fact recommend, here it is:

Watch the full episode. See more Dragon Con.


Four Days at Dragon*Con


"You don't make the kind of friends like you do at Dragon*Con anywhere else. Whether they be lasting or just for those four days, or even, and I've been told, in some cases some people have had very deep friendships for about twenty minutes. We're all misfits, so as a result we all come together under this one beautiful umbrella that is the chaos of Dragon*Con, and I use 'chaos' in the most endearing way that I can."


Yeah, this.
ladyoflorien: (Geeky: The Nerd Signal!)
It has been one heck of a long time since I made a public entry here. Not for lack of want! But now I've entered that stage where it's been so long that I feel like I need something REALLY GOOD to say. You think I'm joking, but you haven't seen my doc files full of links and fic ideas and movie reviews etc etc for posting. This is me: crazy.

Unfortunately, this post is all about DRAGON*CON PLANNING! So to everybody out there coming to D*C this weekend, here's the info on me, where I'll be, and the best way of catching me. I know this is going up super late in the game, but hey. It's me. The fact that it's going up at all is SO MUCH PROGRESS. *affixes a gold star to my forehead*

Hotel/Arrival/Meeting up/Basic details )

Where you can catch me/Availability )

In Sum:
WE SHOULD HANG OUT. To those I have tentative plans with, be sure you contact me so I can add them into my schedule/calendar.

And, to all those not attending, if there's anything you'd really like (I used to offer phone calls from celebs, but last year they cracked down on that due to some really ridiculous lawsuits filed against the celebs. IDEK. So that's probably unlikely), such as pictures, video, an autograph, etc (subject to free vs. $$), let me know! I'll be doing video for some of the writing panels as I mentioned above, I'll be hanging around the Walk of Fame, Artists/Comics Alley, and the Dealers Exhibits, so I can hook you up. Maybe. XD

OKAY, THAT'S ALL FOR NOW. I was going to ramble a bit more, but the afternoon is waxing away and I need a snack. >_> Potentially more later.

ladyoflorien: (Happy: FS Aeryn enjoying the rain)
First order of business: May the Fourth be with you! Yes, happy Star Wars Day, everyone. XD

Who Knew? Yahoo! presents a quick little video on geek holidays.

Second order of business: I blame [livejournal.com profile] ceitfianna and [livejournal.com profile] the_croupier forever for getting me hooked on this game. I now share the torment with you. I created for a while, composing stirring symphonies of light and sound... then I decided to recreate some of my favorite compositions, and... lost. Lost forever in square grid music composition land? Le sigh.

Third order of business: I think my custom mood theme disappeared. :-/

Fourth order of business: Hey guys. I miss you. What's up?

You know who you are.

All right, flist. I've finally broken down and signed up for Twitter. Friend me for amusing user error shenanigans as I figure out how to make this bloody thing work. *FROWNS FOREVER*

Most epic win I've seen since... the climax to that Indian action film Rick linked last night. Heh.

"Pooh!" whispered Piglet.
"Yes, Piglet?" said Pooh.
"Oh, nothing," said Piglet.
"I was just making sure of you."





I received this card in the mail today. This past year has given me incredible perspective, which is something I feel I've been lacking in my life. I rejoice in my friends, grateful for every day I have their strength, hope, happiness, and vitality. And occasionally I am reminded, they rejoice in me, too.

One more thing:

(Taken at [livejournal.com profile] in_the_blue's prompting)

Ask me about any character I RP*, and I will pick one of the following and tell you:

a. Three facts about them from my personal fanon.
b. Two reasons they're amazing.
c. Five things that I'd like to see happen to them.
d. Three people that I might ship that character with and why.

Uh... I guess if there's one of these topics about any given character that really fascinates you, you can go ahead and pick that topic too. I'm easy.



*Milliways: Leela, Porthos, Renee Walker, Grace Augustine. Elsegame, including Mixed Muses: Red Pollard, Geordi La Forge, Shawn Spencer, Gus Burton, Neal Caffery, John Crichton, Captain Jack Sparrow, George Mason, Scotty Smalls, Rick O'Connell, Aunt May (yes, that Aunt May), and whomever else I might be forgetting over the last 6 years of RP.
ladyoflorien: (Introspective: Joss Whedon Be Yourself)
Right. So, now that I've had a good and epic freak out rant, let's get back to your regularly scheduled programming. No, not the radio silence! :|

SO, GUYS. I haven't actually been keeping up with my flist, because I fail. YOUR MISSION, IF YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT: update me on what I've missed! This means: links to LJ posts, or fun pictures/videos/links, or tagging me for memes, or ANYTHING. *pokes at you allllll*

OKAY, SO I'LL START! )
ladyoflorien: (Geeky: The Nerd Signal!)

D*C stuff!

ladyoflorien: (Geeky: Geek Fangirl No Frelling Apologie)
RIGHT. So, I've been meaning to post regarding D*C for a while now, but, as with most things in my life, here I am doing it last minute!

This is first a call to all the milli-muns who will be in Atlanta this weekend for the Con (or others): I'll be arriving bright and early tomorrow morning, with a small group of muns! If anyone wants to arrange for hanging out, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT HERE. It'll likely be the most trustworthy way of getting ahold of me, unless we've already exchanged phone numbers. I would love to hear from you all, especially since I won't be making it to the Milli-dinner planned for Saturday night at 7pm -- BROWNCOATS REDEMPTION WHOOOO SO EXCITED!

Secondly, if anyone would like anything from Con, let me know! I take requests for anything free or reasonably cheap. Pictures, phone calls, that sort of thing! For instance: before I started attending, [livejournal.com profile] jedi_bria would have stars call and leave voice messages for me. I still have them. ♥

THE LIST SO FAR:
-Adam Savage call Calvin
-Picture of Klingon
-Mike Mignola autograph
-Brandon Routh call Sef
-Stalk the following: Brent Spiner, John DiMaggio, Firefly cast
-Picture of Michael Trucco

SO. Check out http://www.dragoncon.org/ or the epic cast list and let me know, loves! :D

NOW TIME TO FLEEEEE. SEE YOU AT THE CON!
ladyoflorien: (Default)
YES WAI. I make no promises, but FIC!

Title: Between the Bars
Fandom: 24
Characters: Renee Walker, Larry Moss
Word count: 863
Rating: PG
Summary: A phone call is not the best playground for two tempers.
Spoilers: pre-season 7, no real spoilers.
Warnings: None
Author's Note:  Title taken from an Elliott Smith song of the same name.  Written originally because a while back someone asked me about Larry and Renee's handwaved relationship, and it gave me a bunny.  But then the bunny gorged itself on some mutant breed of carrot and became something entirely different than what it started out as.  So, it's a drabble.  I make no promises as to its quality, and reserve the right to add to/take away from it at any future point.  >_>

Damn. This is totally not allergies. :( *doubles up on echinatia and tries not to throw out back from coughing* Thiiiis is what happens when you have no immune system.



I'm probably going to regret this, but seeing as how it's looking like I'll be spending the rest of the day at home, I might as well jump in and work on a project of mine...

FIC REQUESTS!

Pick a fandom, any fandom. It doesn't have to have anything to do with any of my characters if you pick one of my pup's canons. The usual suspects apply (Farscape, 24, Pushing Daisies, Firefly, Psych, etc etc), but I am so open to the challenge of a new fandom, so long as I'm at least somewhat familiar with it; and I can do original fic based on a genre or theme (ie: "western" or "victorian ball"). CHALLENGE ME, PEOPLE.

I'm bad with limits, so you might get a drabble or you might get an epic tale, WE SHALL SEE WHAT THE FATES DECREE.

what i am

cowboy boots and summer dresses; thirty-something self-proclaimed geek, writer, artist, lover, laugher, cowgirl, fighter; chronically ill and chronically smiling, a mess of leather and lace, wild curls, and summer dresses; beating it off the beaten path, creating something out of nothing, making art with you. ♥
