I have 9 cats.


When did I get nine cats? I'm fairly sure I didn't have nine cats when I left for vividcon.

One, two, three, four... yup. Nine. Hmm.

In other news, new vid. The Others (the Nicole Kidman film, not the unrelated and tragically short-lived tv series) to October Project's Bury My Lovely. Windows Media Player, 10.8 mb.

At some point, there will be a con report. I'm fairly sure. Soon as I count my cats again, finish start ats_nolimits episode 2, beta-read 4 chapters of Of Old Mystics, sleep, return my rental car, count my cats again, and sleep. In no particular order.

They're much like wire hangers. If you leave them alone in a dark closet they multiply...

And then get all tangled up together and poke you when you least expect it...
You're right!

You aren't a crazy cat lady yet...

Crazy cat ladies know EXACTLY how many cats they have.

Maybe they are dastardly cats, and they are cloning themselves? You could make a fortune off of them!

But but but... I meant didn't we have fewer cats at one point?

I can't get the vid to work. :-( It says it's not on the server.

My link was mistyped; I left out the /~mpoetess/ part. It should be correct now, if you refresh. Or here's a direct link: http://www.hawksong.com/~mpoetess/vids/forgetmenot768.wmv

Oh, wow. Creepy, but beautiful, just like the film itself. I think I might keep this one.

Thanks! Glad it worked for you -- aside from my chat buddies, most of the reaction came from people wo hadn't seen the movie, who essentially said "I haven't seen the movie, therefore this makes no sense to me. But Nicole Kidman is pretty." (A sentiment I can agree with.)

Ooh! I just found your journal, and your link to the vid. Count me among those who saw (and loved) the movie and who loved this vid! I thought the song choice was haunting and effective and the softness of it went so well with the haunting imagery. Definitely one of the vids I looked forward to most when I saw it in the program, and it did not disappoint. Thank you for sending it to the con!

Thank you so much! Glad to find another fan of the film, and very glad the vid worked for you, as it was a totally new thing for me, subject-wise and obscurity-wise. I was definitely nervous about whether there was an audience for it at all. (And I suspect from the reactions I've read that indeed, having seen the film may be a requirement for most viewers to interact with the vid, beyond enjoying the pretty source.)
