VID LIST!

All the vids! I kind of put this off because most of my vids are just available at Youtube, but that's not 100% true anymore. So here we are!

Workshopping an idea - DVD grab bags

So I have, over the years, accumulated many, many, many, many, many DVDs. Most of them live in boxes in my storage unit and I rarely have occasion or desire to retrieve them. The idea of hauling them to a new place just to not watch them is, frankly, less than appealing.

I thought that it'd be cool to spread the wealth around and make it a sort of weird game. So, like, you PayPal me $5-10 and give me a generic idea of films you'd like (five primaries and two backups). A list could be like:
  1. A European horror film.
  2. A 1940s comedy
  3. A Billy Wilder film.
  4. A 1980s horror film featuring a cast member from Spaceballs.
  5. A musical.
  6. (Backup) An Akira Kurosawa film
  7. (Backup) Something with a giant monster in it.
Or a list could be like:
  1. Any five movies based on a work of literature, preference for 19th century authors.
  2. (backup) Whatever weird archival softcore porn you bought on a lark 10 years ago, preference for being based on a work of literature (there goes my copy of The Secret Sex Lives of Romeo and Juliet).
I'd go through my collection and send you five DVDs that match your requests (on a first come, first served basis).
I wouldn't be able to guarantee that you're getting something you don't already have or that you'll even like what you get. I have a list of standard warnings you could request to filter out: Sexual Violence, Gore, Violence Against Animals, Violence Against Children, Roman Polanski, and Woody Allen.
Would you guys have any interest in this? How much would you be willing to pay for a grab bag like that?

I have a life? WTF?

I've added two new things to my life recently and they're both going extremely well, I think.

1. I've joined an online Dungeons and Dragons game thanks to[personal profile] settiai putting in a good word for me. You can see my character in my icon. He's a gnome barbarian named Mawny. He likes smashing things. Instead of rages (a barbarian class feature), he goes into delights. He's a very happy fellow. Dumb as a rock, but happy. I like the other players and I'm intrigued to see where the DM is going with this story.

Here"s the full pictureCollapse )

2. I've started exercising. I'm doing Zombies Run 5K. I'm halfway through Week 2. I think my height is giving me some advantages. Last night I did 3.33KM in the 30ish minute session. About 2/3rds of that time, I was doing a fast walk, not a run. Anyway, my primary goal is to increase my stamina, so I don't get tired out from doing household chores or running to the store. If this works out, I may also look into doing some other types of exercise.

Now, if we can only get through Tuesday without triggering the apocalypse, my life will really be going well.

More D&D

Well, that was exciting. Last night I had my first session with the online D&D group I'm joining as a player. The DM was actually out of town, so one of the other players ran a one-off. I like these folks and this is going to be a lot of fun!

Thanks to [personal profile] settiai for inviting me in!

Dear Festividder letter coming soon

You may have seen it briefly, but the formatting went to hell and I couldn't fix it. So I have to redo the whole thing. Fun times.

Voting

I just registered to vote by mail because I *need* to vote this year, but I am also deeply lazy.

I highly recommend it.

How is everybody? (post-Debate check-in)

Everyone okay? How much furniture repair will you need? Bandages for bleeding fingers from exasperated tweets? Hugs?

(I didn't watch, but I watched Twitter watch, which is like watching, but not nearly as frustrating)

Shortest most belated con report ever

Vividcon was amazing. Just amazing. It was the best time I've ever had there. I didn't have a social meltdown or need to hide or anything.

Tech stuff went well. It was all very low stress and everybody was super helpful. The vidshows were all fantastic (I saw nearly all of them by the end of the weekend). I wish I had been able to attend more panels, but it wasn't happening.

Club Vivid was a grand old time. I cosplayed as Joel Hodgson from MST3K and brought along a Tom Servo I bought off of Etsy. He was a big hit!

There were so many excellent vids! So many. I feel like I should make a list but it's so haaaaaard. Maybe later? Probably not. Maybe?

It was so great to see so many amazing people again, like the entire concom team, as well as [personal profile] settiai[personal profile] bironic[personal profile] bradcpu, [personal profile] thirdblindmouse, [personal profile] shati, and the lady who jumped into my arms after Premieres, [personal profile] fan_eunice . I also got to connect better with [personal profile] lola[twitter.com profile] ghosttownexit00, and [personal profile] dira, who are awesome people and I really enjoyed the conversations. There's a bunch of other people who were significant and awesome from the weekend that aren't named above. You can assume one of the following regarding any omissions:

1. It slipped my mind just now because it's been nearly a month and I'm terrible.
2. I remembered the experience but the fannish name is escaping me at this late hour.
3. We vowed never to speak of it again. We take it to our grave.

Something that became clear soon after Vividcon, though, is that I don't get to see my out-of-town friends enough. It's hard to reconnect with dozens of people over a single weekend. And I really want to stay closer to my Vividcon people and it's so easy for me to just sort of drift off. I want to be more connected. I want to write emails and beta vids and offer advice and go visit and maybe a bunch of us meet up in a non-Vividcon setting and hang out or go to a theme park or museum or something.

I have a therapist friend who says I'm an introvert masquerading as an extrovert. I think I'm just an enthusiastic introvert who loves people. I just need to be able to run away or do quiet-together time. Or I need to be like, the most caffeinated. That is also an option.

Short version: I love you guys and I miss you guys.

Multi-vid resource: spreadsheet time!

Here's a stripped-down, less micro-managey version of the spreadsheet that I use for all of my multifandom vids:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F__Rg4Yc5O5L1BQzwDJCFvRrh_aUH313nhql57zQlwU/edit?usp=sharing

It's set to read-only, but you can "Make a copy" in the File menu to keep it for your very own.

The rows will auto-highlight based on whether you've clipped and/or acquired source and there's an automatically updating counter at the top.
