Writer's Block: Gone but Not Forgotten

Many beloved television shows are no longer with us, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Six Feet Under, and Mystery Science Theater 3000. What defunct television show do you miss the most?
I tend to curse every show I watch with either cancellation or ruin. My record is so good, that every fall I get lists from my friends on what shows they don't want me to watch.

MST3K is one of my faves. (I'll always have Torgo.) I want to say I miss Firefly, but I was a DVD convert, so I don't know if that counts.

My two most missed, never should have been canceled shows took place in the 1940's. I loved Homefront, which ran from '92-'94. And AMC got rid of its first series and my all time favorite show, Remember WENN, which took place at a radio station just before WWII.

Yes, I'm actually posting! :)

A few posts ago, I took a moment to fangirl the talent that is minisinoo. I'm still in love with her Cedric Diggory novel, and being the movie trailer fiend that I am, I figured out how to thank her for such a wonderful story. As a very, very late birthday present, I created a trailer for her novel, Finding Himself.

I was a little nervous about this one because a)it was someone else's story, b)I was working with a trial version of Sony Vegas which I've never used before, and c)I haven't made a video in months. I think it turned out good, and Min liked it, so I'm happy.

Enjoy...and if you're a Harry Potter fan, go read Finding Himself stat! :-)

It's official!

I received my thesis review in the mail and final grades have been posted. I have finally, officially completed my Master's Degree. My life can now go back normal. I know it's odd for a teacher to say, but I will never take another class again. :)
Fangirl Moment

Fangirl Andé

Well, I'm five, maybe ten pages away from finishing my thesis, and I am finding myself in desperate need of a break. I've posted in this journal only twice in a year and a half, and don't think too many people read it.(If you are reading, hi!) However, I thought I might spread the word and share the works of two very talented individuals.

tzegha is one of the most talented vidders around. She has created some amazing and wonderful vids based on the Firefly/Serenity 'verse. Her vids can move you to tears or drive a shiver up and down your spine. She's completed about a dozen videos and trailers, and she never fails to amaze. My favorite remains her first one, the Faux Serenity Trailer, but every single one is enjoyable. Go download them all at once! :-)

After reading so much drama about Harry Potter, I swore I would never get involved in Harry Potter fandom. However, I recently saw and read Goblet of Fire for the first time, and fell in love with the character of one Cedric Diggory. The writer of my favorite X-Men fanfic, minisinoo, has been working on an AU novel and it's absolutely brilliant. Finding Himself focuses on Cedric discovering who he is after almsot dying. Beginning with the final chapters of the fourth book, and continuing through Order of the Phoenix, the novel heavily features a Cedric/Hermione relationship. It's extremely well-written and ties in perfectly with the existing books/movies.

So, not sure how many people will see this, but if you happen upon this post, please check out the work of these two talented ladies. Download/read and tell them how awesome they are. You won't regret it. :)

First Journal Entry

Well, I signed up for this journal a few months ago, and I thought perhaps it might be a good idea to actually test it out. I doubt anyone is reading this, but if you are...hi! :) I'm not going to be posting much here, but if I do, I hope to make it somewhat interesting or informative. That is all.
