jekesta: Peter (from Franklin and Bash) sprinkles sparkling lights over Jared's head (sprinkle)

Spoilers for my book. )

I can't tell you what a gift these books are in the midst of 2017. You should all have your pairings of 14 years ago come back to soothe you. Or not soothe, but whatever this is. Maybe if we all make it to 2028 Franklin and Bash will miraculously suddenly return and deal with all their issues from the end of s4 in emotionally wrought ways that at least slightly distract from all the wars and total lack of civil liberties.

(Seth Green is making a thing and Breckin Meyer is going to be in it. WITH HIS ACTUAL FACE. I thought that was never going to happen again.)

My MP has written back to my email about the DUP, and he says that actually he has a lot of friends in the DUP and that although he understands 'concerns from the lgbt community' he feels sure that they can work together for the good of everyone in the country. I hate him so much. And obviously I would really like it if we didn't destroy lgbt rights and everything, but I didn't even mention them. My email was about abortion, it wasn't just vaguely about abortion, I literally told him that he couldn't appropriately represent me in parliament if he didn't think that safeguarding my rights to a clean and safe abortion was important. But no, no reassurances there. I mean LGBT stuff, that's quite political isn't it, and we wouldn't want to mess up and lose votes. But denying basic rights to women... that's a bit more debatable.

Hello everyone! And welcome any new listeners!

So, my episode reviewing 'Knock Knock' is finally here! And this time around I talk lots about everything from my experiences at the recent local Doctor Who convention 'Wholanta', to laying down a few delightful podcast recommendations, to some musing on the whole Race!Fail period of S3 and all that really great meta that come out of all of that WAY BACK on LiveJournal (remember that site?), to Jo Grant's grandson as the Iron Fist (!), and on to dark fairy tales and (mis)interpreting them, to British English spellings vs. American ones, and to some classical geeking about Dryads, all the way to musing a bit about this adventure as an episode of the reality show 'The Real World'. Phew!

So, I truly hope you will all join me for this episode and, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Do enjoy the ride!

jekesta: Paul and Dylan love each other SO VERY MUCH. (neighbours pairing of yay)

01. I think Rita is slowly improving but now I've written that down she'll likely stop. (Edit: She has a new raised red patch just developed. I'm taking her to the vet again in the morning.) I'm shampooing her twice a day because she has long fur so it's the only way to get things to her skin. I have to shampoo her then lock her outside for ten minutes covered in shampoo. Luckily it's good weather for that. She's out there now. Standing at the door. Staring at the door handle. I love her a lot.

02. As though just intuiting the world's lack of care, dreamwidth has eaten up my drafted post of great emotion about my book. Which is fine. But I love it so much I can't really manage, and I was doing well at reading slowly until yesterday I binged loads of it and now I feel sick. Some spoilers. )

03. I am bored. Like a child.

I updated my "Disability Pride" Flag

This is the original one, I came up with last year:
Disability Pride flag HD

Symbolism )

A while after I posted it I posted it to Tumblr, someone asked that I put a fifth stripe in, to represent invisible illnesses (which I had folded in with both mental illness and physical disability, but she pointed out that people with invisible disabilities are often made to feel that they don't count, or are "faking," and being specifically acknowledged would help break that stigma, and as she is someone with an invisible disability, I took her word for it.

Well, yesterday, I was in the mood to work on something visual, so decided to take a bit of time to tweak this... Half a day later, I got this:
disability pride 2

(The flag's symbolism is much the same as described above, with the fifth color [Purple] representing invisible illness.)

And, because I forgot to write this down the first time, and had to figure out how to do it again from scratch:

I watched last week's episode at Continuum, while hiding from people in the committee room, and made a terrible discovery: iView streaming quality is much, much better over 4G on an iPad than over the NBN on a new desktop.


That was pretty much the highlight of Gatiss's episode, so let's move on to the triumphant return of Rona Munro.

You never hear the spoilers. )

jekesta: Stay with your vehicle (Stay with your vehicle)
[personal profile] jekesta
1. Apparently people (directors) are outraged that 'aeroplane' versions of films are being made available for download by Sony. Pff. How hard could they get over themselves and their artistic fucking vision? Very very very hard. Like it matters if people want to show their children your film without your groundbreaking meaningful very very clever wank joke? Come on now. (!) I have so much nostalgia for the versions of films that used to be shown pre-watershed with the swear words dubbed over and the awkward cuts to take scenes out. I honestly never enjoy Jumping Jack Flash as much as I used to because I miss the weird low voice that used to interrupt every now and then which we honestly didn't even realise was meant to be part of Whoopi Goldberg's lines, we thought it was a fault on the tape. And I'm always a little bit upset when there is swearing in Die Hard. Basically Seth Rogen is all outraged about artistic integrity and I am happy to be on the opposite side of any argument from Seth Rogen.

2. It's always nice when the internet takes time out to hate Joss Whedon. And I know it's not like we lack people hating Joss Whedon any more, but it still feels vaguely reassuring to me when it happens.

3. Day 7: A song to drive to

Immediately on reading this I was trying to pick my favourite car song, and it was going to be difficult, because I love a lot of them but I do think the best one is absolutely Little Deuce Coupe and I also think that's a bit obvious and I might have had to pretend to have a better answer. (I really like 455 Rocket by Kathy Mattea, which is about her wrecking her beautiful car and I love the line 'as we skid I thought I heard the angels sing... it sounded like the beach boys'.)

But then I read the actual question, and the best song to drive to is this, without question:

Because INSTANTLY you are amazing, and every gear change is the coolest you have ever been, and cornering is a dream, and you are basically dancing.

1. I watched Season 5 of OITNB, closely followed by The Keepers, all in the matter of a few days. I went into one of those states where you are just confused at the idea of men in your television. (What are they, why would we care?) I really liked the Keepers, just because it was all about older women, and they were amazing and brave and interesting, and because it's a documentary it could never go 'oh that is enough women now' it just had more and more and it was beautiful to watch. I also really liked OITNB too.

2. I don't like leeks.

3. A song that makes you want to dance:

(All the versions of this with Marc Bolan's face in them are blocked in my country, I'm not just weirdly denying you his face.)

Back in April, I visited my family in DC, and I lucked out, foodwise: my hotel was just a few blocks from Momofuku's DC outpost. I had their chilled Szechuan noodles with pork, Thai basil, and cashews and vowed then and there I'd replicate the dish at home if I could.

Which I have, or near enough for my purposes.
