ConneXions Stuff and Stuff and Stuff

1. GIP! Except for the Gratuitous part. (The hotel pool? Warmer than the non-working hot tub. Warmer than some people's bathtubs.) Dear people in the picture: hopefully you are tiny and blurry enough not to be identifiable, but should you have an objection I will make the icon go 'way.


2. P433r My Wyfe!

We tried to take the Pixy Sticks away from her. We tried.


3. Vids

Not Pretty Enough: Lord Percy Percy / Blackadder II. Poor old peabrain. Premiered at ConneXions 2005. WMV, 9.07 mb.

Declaration: Xander has something to say. Created in 2002, re-mastered for the not-quite-new show at ConneXions 2005. WMV, 4.91 mb. Layers, Boni. Layers. ;-)

Ghost was also shown at the not-quite-new show on Friday night. It was re-mastered last summer for VividCon, with dvd source and a few new/altered clips. If you've seen it since then, there's nothing new here.

4. Teh Book

(That book.) Bought it at the con, as did wolfling. We had dueling copies floating around the hotel room, distinguishable only because hers still had the price sticker on the front. My take: pretty nifty for fans, especially those who were around for part but not all of it. God help the Normal Folk (the ones we don't call Mundanes anymore because someone somewhere will throw a fit or initiate a sociological discussion), though, for the narration is neither linear nor as explicative of who people are and what they have to do with the story as it might be. I was amused by the fact that one of the illustrative pictures of VB/Frodo/Jordan was taken by me (and used without credit, but I can suss out how and why, and I don't particularly care) at ConneXions 2002; wolfling was amused because that picture in its original form contains a wolfling, standing off to VB's left. I cropped-and-shopped her out of the version that ended up online, because her eyes were closed in the pic.

I wonder if they make Pixy Stix methadone. Like Sour Patch kids!

Thankee!


It's not wrong. If loving sweet hot sugary goodness is wrong, I don't want to be right!

Declaration vid = MP mad evol genius.

Tis a pity they don't do cigarette ads any more. Spike could beg them to let him 'Rest in Peace'.

Thank you!


Do not make me think of other ads that could have Buffy voiceovers. Do not.

I beg you.

Of course, I sent Baldrick for help, so... Er. Nice knowing you.

Poor baby. I missed him in later years; Kevin Darling just wasn't the same.

Poor Percy - we were heartless bastards to laugh at him!

How can we watch Blackadder II again without crying?

I bought THAT book, too. I even preordered it before they were ready to be shipped! I'm a sad, sad fangirl. I loved it, though, and found so much of it to be REALLY interesting. Geez, I'm such a geek. But yay, all my friends are geeks, too! *big grin*

You got the book? I so would've tried to skim through your copy if I'd known. Phooey. You must share all the details now! You know where to find me ;)

Okay, I absolutely love that you made a Black Adder vid! Will you make more? I've been having all kinds of slashy thoughts about the show...

mpoetess

2005-04-07 04:31 pm (UTC) (Link)

I might -- I was thinking about maybe combining Not Pretty Enough with two more to make a 1-2-3 trilogy. Prince Edmund to I Just Can't Wait To Be King from the Lion King, possibly, and something PrinceGeorge/Baldrick for BA III.

OMG, the Prince Edmund sounds great. And Balrickwould be great with a couple of the characters.
