So you know Debi, right? Of course you do. Everyone knows Debi, because Debi is one awesome lady, and not knowing her is a crime. Well, awesome ladies deserve awesome things.

Those who know and love her as I do are probably aware that, after three glorious years of having her in the USA, she'll be moving back to the UK this fall. This leaves a short window of time for all of us Americans to make our way to New York and give her one last hug before she goes across the pond. Real Life get-togethers are being planned for the lucky, but many of us suffer with busy lives and empty pockets, and can't afford the time or expense of traveling great distances. Recognizing this as the travesty it is, what are we to do?

Ladies and gents, I hereby invite you to the worldwide going away party event of the century, to be held across the weekend of August 2-4, 2013. That's this coming weekend! The best part is you can join whenever your schedule permits, come back as many times as you want, and it won't cost a dime. Many of us have been brought together through RP, and that has led to rich and wonderful friendships. So what better way to honor our dearest Debi than with a giant RP party?

The deets: This is going to be held in both [community profile] milliways_bar and [community profile] mixed_muses, so absolutely anybody and any character is invited, even those we've retired, haven't apped yet, those delightful OCs and AU characters, etc. In Milliways, Porthos is going to be throwing a housewarming party for Dinah Lance, who recently moved to Star City. The set up thread is located here (still in progress, but all pertinent details have already been threaded), and Porthos will be posting an IC invite to the message board shortly. The party is of course entirely opt-in/opt-out. The Mixed Muses post will be hosted by Felicity Smoak, and will be more of a no-holds-barred shindig where anything goes. The posts will go up simultaneously on Friday morning (well, as simultaneously as I can manage), and remain open the entire weekend so those who have work or plans for the weekend can tag in anytime, no RSVP necessary, and slowtimes will be carried on however long the participants want, of course. :)

I've made this a public post so anyone reading can share and link it with your f-lists as well, so that as many of Debi's friends as possible will hear about it and hopefully be able to play. If you don't know Debi, please come play anyway! Meet somebody new and wonderful, and wish her (and Dinah) all the best in their new homes. This isn't a bon voyage, this is a rousing we love you, and welcome home.

The wonderful thing about the internet is we take the people we love with us wherever we go. ♥

It was 73 degrees outside today. I have no idea what's up with that. Well, I mean, global warming and the end of the world yes, but everyone knows that. All weekend long it was warm outside - now, in the middle of December. Seriously NC, what's up with that?

Dave Matthews video. This is one of the funniest things I've seen Dave do (language advisory). It's a bit lengthy, but HYSTERICAL (especially Dave's bushman impression). Dave talks about South Africa and where "Eh Hee" came from (he also jams out a bit of it), then he plays "Dancing Nancies" live. Who knew the man was so freakin' funny?

Why did it take me nearly a year to discover ScapeCast?! It's a Farscape podcast, and it is amazing. I don't think I've ever pimped it in my journal before, have I? Well I rectify that folly tonight! Go check out Scapecast if you haven't already (get the LJ feed)! The latest episode is bloody hysterical. I also pulled a little news on the webisodes from their bulletin boards that I thought I'd share. It isn't much that I didn't know already, but it's a little something for anyone who hasn't heard any details about the project: Farscape webisodes )

Gigi Edgley has also alluded to being part of the webisode project in an interview, but of course there's nothing solid to confirm that. She does have a movie premiering on the Sci Fi channel on the 15th, though, called Showdown at Area 51. Tune in at 9pm if you want to catch that.

I've started re-watching the first season of Farscape. Night before last I watched the first three episodes, and though season one has never been my favorite season of Farscape, I forget just how witty and amazing the episodes really are. I am a big fan of season three, a Crazy!John devotee, and my all time favorite episode is "Dog With Two Bones." But season one John (together with D'Argo and Zhaan) is so endearing, like a little boy in a great big toy store. Everything that happens, everything he sees, he takes so seriously at first. The way the rest of the crew react to his pop culture references and bizarre idioms at first is always hysterical. Though "I, E.T." holds one of my favorite quotes ("Kind of reminds me of Louisiana. Or Degobah. ...Degobah, where Yoda lives." "Who's Yoda?" "Just a little green guy. Trains warriors." "..Oh."), it is also one of the most aggravating episodes of the whole series. The reason? The show is so believable, the plot so well done, the science really steady, that it just bugs the heck out of me that they never explain how John and the inhabitants of the planet Moya crash-lands on are able to communicate. John has the translator microbes, so it makes sense he can understand them, but they have never made alien contact, never ventured off their planet, so how can they understand him? Ugh, inconsistencies! The Achilles Heel of science fiction! So hard for me to overlook. But you know I love my Farscape, devotedly and unfailingly. It's so well done, otherwise. So yay for rediscovering one's love for the first season (can't wait 'til I get to "PK Tech Girl!")

I've tried to hold it in for so long, but I just can't do it any longer. *looks to the left* *looks to the right* FARSCAPE IS THE BEST SCI-FI TELEVISION SHOW... IT'S EVEN BETTER THAN STAR TREK! *waits for the gasps to subside* YES! THAT'S RIGHT! I SAID IT! WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT? Huh?! What are you gonna do, leave argumentative comments in my journal? WELL, I DARE YOU! Don't think I haven't thought this through! I've got a plethora of reasons to show that I'm right and you're wrong! So go ahead, make my day and leave your comment! ;)

the modelz give me negative self-image

Bonzo Madrid and Petra Arkanian are having a snowball fight in Milliways at the moment. And he's a Jedi? ... o__O [ profile] milliways_bar is completely destroying what's left of my mind. ;)

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. ♥
