Whew, I made it. I was running late, so I didn't check into the hotel or unpack my car for three hours, but I made it to my first panel, a Q&A with Timothy Zanh, literally a minute before it began. And I am so glad I didn't give up hope to make it on time because it was great. He's got two sequels to Thrawn in the works, but has to wait until season 4 of Rebels sets more canon. Also, found out he wrote Thrawn to be a prequel of sorts for Rebels season 3.

writing worships with Zahn and Stackpole have been totally worth the money so far. And I've found one person to talk about Twin Peaks with - one of the writer guests I've met at Con Carolinas. Also, there's a Twin Peaks panel on Sunday - cannot wait!    

Now, going to bed early cause I am wiped. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hey all! Extremely random babble ahead... (Personal update - Doing comm/LJ stuff. Worked a double today. Tired but in a good mood.)

OUAT - I've got season 4.5 going as my background tonight, and I had forgotten that they had Poisedon be Ursula's dad. Which makes me realize, he could have been brought back to help them against Hades. Granted, there was a lot going on in that season, but still - missed opportunity that would add some nice inter-seasonal continuity (not that that seems to be a large concern, snerk). Especially, as it's Hook in immediate danger from Hades, and Hook that Ursula and Poisedon owe big time for reconciling them.

AO3 - I just discovered that AO3 has stats. My top fic fandoms by hits and kudos are Star Wars and OUAT. My Rebels fic is still way in the lead for kudos....so maybe I need to work some more on that series, lol.

Twilight - I haven't read or watched them. I did try to read the first and fifth book, but couldn't get through the first chapters. I can't stand her narration voice. But on my day off I watched all the "Everything Wrong With" videos on Youtube....and now I kinda wanna watch the movies. HORROR!!! But, damn, I didn't know the scenery was so beautiful...and there were so many shirtless young brownish men....ahem. Edward is even more awful looking than in the promos, though, ugh. His head looks like it's been squished, and white face looked bad on Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, so....yeah, no.

I also watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes yesterday. I liked it a lot! A whole lot! I can't wait for the next one to come out. I used to adore the old ones, especially Cornelius and Zira. I watched this one because I saw that the apes use sign language (research for my original fic). That culture they are forming in the movie is wonderful, and I wish we could have a movie just with the apes.

Still haven't seen Beauty and the Beast. For some reason, Amazon isn't giving me access to American Gods, that should have aired on the 30th. I already miss Rebels.

Oh and....
Joss Whedon is doing a Bat Girl Movie!
Everybody freak out!!!!

Sooo, I had no idea this was going on, but as a disturbing amount of things on You Tube, it is hilarious and a bit brilliant.
What: Rap Battle between Deadpool and Boba Fett.
Who: ERB
Warnings: Swearing. Spoilers for Deadpool and Star Wars.

As some might know, I am a research associate at X-University. (Yes, I will tell you where if you want to know, but I am trying to have at least a thin veil between my work and my fandom identity right, and how do you think this is this going, Nátt?.)

I am currently re-doing a survey I did for my thesis five years ago to examine if/how the fandom experience and identity might have changed since then. The results will be published in a scholarly work at some point.

If any of you would like to do the survey (and maybe throw me a comment if you find anything that doesn't work or need clarification, that'd be fantastic. Survey questions can't be changed, though, as they mirror the 2011 survey) it is here: 2016 Survey.

The survey is anonymous, and nothing, neither IP or anything else, is logged. Any questions, throw me a PM or mail.

Feel free to share the link.

It's my day off. I have been sitting here trying to write the first of two reviews I need to get done today. Unfortunately, I keep getting distracted by Tumblr. A week ago, I never went there. But I started three, yes, THREE new feeds for my new tv interests, and the reviews and banners that go with them, and now I'm addicted. It's that easy.

For me anyway, because a month ago, I had no life outside my massage job.

Now, I am a three fandom, multiform cybernautic being, bent on taking over the world! Mawahahahahaha!
