First off, thank you so so so so much for the comments so far in the graphics post I made. I'll get on replying to you guys in a bit.

The reason or this post is:

For the last 6 months or so, I've been in the stargate fandom. And of late a LOT of people on my twitter and F-list are now either watching one of the shows for the first time or rewatching it. It's great and fun watching people live blog and talk about the show so much.

So I was wondering. Are any of you interested in a relaxed friends comm where we can squee and chat about the Stargate fandom? Maybe do rewatches and whatnot? Post random shit?

I only ask because this is such a old fandom that it's hard to jump into the existing comms. And while stargateland is nice for the challenges, it's seriously lacking in the social fun.

Poll #1604585 stargate
Open to: All, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 14

Would you be interested in a Stargate comm?

Another picspam for jjverse.

Cloverfield: The Post 9/11 Monster Movie

I know this movie gets trashed and I understand why, but in my mind it's a work of pure genius and is by far my favorite movie of it's genre (sorry Godzilla!)

Yes, it uses the fear and anxiety we felt over 9/11 (and some say exploits it). Some of the scenes are taken almost straight from footage/events of that day, the best example being the scene when they run into the general store to hide from the debris of the falling building (in this case The Woolworth Building).

But isn't that what all great monster movies do? They take the fears that are relevant to the time and put them into the form of a monster. So, as the film makers themselves say, it allows one to work out their fears in a safe environment.

Some other touches of the times, is that it is being filmed by one of the main characters themselves (on camcorder). We are seeing the events through their eyes (cameria lens). And throughout, we also see others filming and taking pictures (mostly on their cellphones). Let's face it people, this is the world we currently live in. If this happened today, you know there would be people filming it. After all, a good amount of news coverage comes from the common person just snapping a photo.

Now onto the picspam: From the opening scene one gets chills. The Place 'formally known as Central Park'? Right off the bat we know that New York City does not survive this attack. We just don't yet know why.

Onto the picspamCollapse )

Making a post to link everyone to a livejournal community created to help the relief effort in Haiti through fandom.

help_haiti
This Journal was created in the morning of January 13, 2010, as a place for fandomers to help raise money to help in the rescues, recoveries and rebuilding of Haiti following the tragic earthquake on January 12, 2010.

Also on that LJ are a ton of links to ways you can help OUTSIDE of fandom, including donating straight to Red Cross, OXFAM and other charities.

Thread where you can bid on me! I'll write whatever you ask me to in the fandoms I've listed.

Hope some of you join in as well!

There is a new interactive group out there. It's the one fandom I said I'd be willing to join another group for. This one is for Doctor Who!! I Pmed the mod and much to my excitement she told me it will include the whole of Doctor Who canon, but just New Who. That's just the way it should be, IMO.

For those interested in joining go here! I'm sure it will be a great way to make new friends....

Um, I might have to drop from JJ verse if it becomes too much. But I love Doctor Who too much not to join!

nowgold started this lovely group called whedonland. It sounded pretty awesome and I volunteered to help. I'm the captain of The Browncoats (aka the firefly fans)!! *claps hands in glee* So up and join!! It's all about fics and icons and quizes and everything good about fandom... and winning!!!!


What is Whedonland about?
It's an interactive community, with a sense of competition. You will be placed in one of the teams : Dollhouse, Serenity, Sunnydale or City of Angels. You will compete against the other teams to defeat the apocolypse first.
To defeat the apocolypse first, your team must have the greatest amount of points on the designated date. You'll learn more about this as we go on.
How do i get points?
A number of ways...you can particpate in the icon communities, complete trivia games, write fic, and other assorted tasks that will come up. Particpation gets you points, winning gets you more points.
Each team will also have in-team activities and fun of their own!
What team will i be in? Can i choose?
Yes and no, teams will be even, so you can have a first choice, but you may get put into any team.
What if i hate my team
You can ask for a transfer, which will be granted on VERY RARE occasions, or you can leave the comm. Once you're in a team, it's preferrable that you stay there!

I've been a big fan of JJ and Joss for many years now. They are both the kings of current geek tv in my book. So I set up a big poll devoted to the two. Click away!!

Click, click, click!!Collapse )
