Still building it, but could use a few members to get the ball rolling :)

I went through the friending meme at ontd_startrek and added like 30 new people to my friend list, so hi new friends :D

Downloaded and watched the Star Trek DVD extras, they were pretty cool. I can't wait for the DVD so I can listen to the commentary (still a shame there's no cast commentary), but the featurettes were nice.

Also, I had to share this screen cap of Zach and Zoe from from the "Starship" featurette. I might be all about Kirk and Spock, but I found this beyond adorable.

Zoe"s hand. Zack"s tongue.Collapse )

Apparently Prince Charles will visit the Montreal Biodome on November 10.

I live across the street from the Biodome. It's gonna be a nightmare getting in and out of the house that day, isn't it? :/

Geocities shuts down today.

Ah, Geocities. My first website. Which I spent 4 hours saving last night file by file, because you, Geocities, never understood what FTP stood for (at least for free users).

I signed up for Geocities circa 1997, when I was 15, and that's where I learned the basics of website building. It's my job now. I've moved past the Comic Sans font and the blinky text and now I work on autodesk.com.

Geocities was crappy in a lot of ways, particularly after Yahoo! bought it, but in the beginning it was a nice place... the first online community I joined, before I became more involved in eGroups (which became Yahoo! Groups and also started to suck. Wow, do I detect a pattern), and then LiveJournal. Geocities had all these different neighborhoods - I was a SunsetStrip girl myself.

I had a few websites on Geocities, mostly fandom stuff and a some school related things. My biggest one was a Backstreet Boys site which was pretty popular, I guess. I didn't know how to view my stats (did they even give their users access to the stats then?) but Geocities contacted me to tell me I had one of the most visited sites in my "neighborhood". They sent me a t-shirt and upgraded my space limit to 50mb, which rocked back in 1997. Unfortunately at some point after Yahoo! bought Geocities, I was downgraded to 20mb without warning and lost half my site (most of the folder images were empty when I did my backup last night).

Someone on metafilter.com put it best: reading that Geocities is shutting down is like reading the obit of the guy you lost your virginity to.

Farewell, Geocities. I shall play a midi in your honor.
Under the LJ-cut below, you'll find all the interviews I have collected over the last few weeks, divided by date (with a few 'other/unknown dates' at the end). For each day, there's a SendSpace link to download all the interviews in one .zip, as well as a few highlights for each of all the files inside the zip. I also included links to view the videos online if you're not the downloading type (sorry for not embedding, but it would have made the post completely unmanageable).

Over 1gb of video under hereCollapse )

Well. That took forever and a half (I've had a draft of this in my LJ since June 12, heh). I kept finding new stuff while I was hunting down online copies of other videos.

If there are any interviews I missed, or if any links die, please let me know. :)
Zach Quinto paparazzi video under cutCollapse )

I can't watch that thing entirely because wow, second-hand embarrassment, but I cannot stop laughing at the absolutely randomness, WTF-ness of a video that can be summarized as such:

Zach trips over his dog, then someone shouts so no one walks on his glasses, then the giant steak gets caught between the light pole and the hedge, and has to be pulled out by Zach and the butcher.

Also, still working on that massive Quinto/Pine video spam. About half of it is done.

I think... I don't want to jinx it... but I think I have a new fandom.

I mean, one that will last longer than a week. It's already been two weeks and I'm not sick of it, so it might stick around, yeah? Please do stick around, new obsession. I miss being in fandom. It's a year or two since my last real fandom. I've been testing the water here and there, discovering new books and movies and shows and games, and binging on fic/vid for a few days, and then being bored with it and moving on. But now I can't get enough of the vids and the fics and all the oh-so-pretty pictures, and please don't go away new fandom.

If the 2 weeks time tag didn't ring any bells, I'm talking about the new Star Trek movie. Yes, 40-some odds years after the original series, I was finally run over by the clue bus and realized that Kirk and Spock are really, really slashy. I'm currently working my way through the original series (almost done with season 1) but I might skip ahead to the movies because OMGangst, judging from the summaries I've read.

It's funny, I went to see the movie expecting to be somewhat lukewarm to it, because everyone rants and raves about Star Wars and I was fairly bored with it (good movies, but nowhere near that OMG-must-find-fic-now! level) and I was expecting Star Trek to be somewhat similar if not worse. But there's like, characterization and stuff. Give me the most boring of universes (not that the ST universe is boring) and fill it with interesting characters and relationships and I'm there.

So, I haven't really updated this LJ regularly since I was last in fandom some years ago, but I suspect I might pick it up again. Not that this LJ was ever inactive, as I use it to keep up with various communities, but I might post more regularly from now on (blathering on about Trek, of course). My flist is in a massive need of a clean-up, but I'm too damn lazy to go through everything for now, so eh, maybe later. I thought about saying 'fuck it' and start anew on Dreamwidth (apparently it's fandom's new Eldorado? I missed a lot of meta discussion), but I would miss my non-fannish communities too much. There needs to be like, an aggregator or something that lets you merge all the LJ-clones together and use them regardless of which one it is.

Anyway, I may or may not be working on a massive Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto video spam post. Because I certainly don't have a 2 Gb folder full of video interviews with these two. Nuh-Huh. And I certainly don't like, totally ship them. And they're not excessively adorable when they bicker like an old married couple, or try to impress each other with their mastery of the English language, or do their silly Spork handshake. And Zachary Quinto certainly does not ooze slash from every single pore in his body.

I finally finished my TDS/TCR fanvid/montage. Yay! I've been working on this since February! It wasn't so much the editing that took long, it was finding the footage.

Links to my website/YouTubeCollapse )

The clips are in no specific order, except for the last segment just before the part set to music, which is composed exclusively of clips from the last 4 months, because I finished the first two segments a while ago.

The edits are a little choppy sometimes. I usually work with Adobe Premiere, except that all the episodes I downloaded are encoded in XviD, which Premiere isn't compatible with. And there was no way I was re-encoding hundreds of episodes. So I had to do with Windows Movie Maker, which allows pretty much just a simple cut/paste/fade in, and that makes cutting around the laughs nearly impossible.

Here's where you can find a list of the clips used in the montage, should you want to seek them out:
