Wow. My last post was the beginning of November. Yeah, that makes sense since that was the last time my life was semi-sane. Why is it that every time I think life can't get any more crazy, it does anyway.

Actually this is going to be a really short post. My sister-in-law has started a bookclub website. I've been wandering around it to support the family and decided I really liked it so I thought I would share.

To show how horribly behind I am this vid was started in 06 for the 06 Moonridge auction. I finished it in August and sent it off to the wonderous woman who won it. Now just in time for another auction I'm posting it here.

Title: Easier to Run
Fandom: Horatio Hornblower
Notes: The request was for a relationship vid and the subtext in the song and clips are certainly there, but there are enough ways to interpret what is going on that whether or not it is a relationship vid is left up to the viewers discretion. See intro for full credits.

Easier to RunCollapse )

The auction I have another vid open for is here:
Of course it is for charity. The money will go to a Hollywood star for Brian Keith. For more information go here:

General update:

In reverse chronological order: over the last two months we've had a wonderful friend from DC come visit us, been evacuated because of the Tustin Fire in California, attended an exercise in extreme camping that my family does every year, had a death in SuziQ's family, given a new desk causing the need to rearrange every piece of heavy furniture in our entire house (most of which I did single-handedly since SuziQ was gone attending the funeral of her aunt), and had work shut down all access to LiveJournal, Yahoo Groups, and a handful of rather odd sites. Of course all of this happened right in the middle of me attempting to get all of the graphics out for the LMFA Nominee's, participation in a rather intense Christmas Choir that performs the first week in December, several rather interesting conversations on LJ, and a story that I've been trying to write with Sasha!

Apologies all the way around! I lucked out and got today off and I am trying desperately to get caught up. To my knowledge the LMFA Nomination graphics are all out so if you were supposed to get one and didn't please let me know.

I am now officially highly amused! SuziQ did you see this? I think it's a sign we should move again. *grins*

You're Oregon!

When people talk about peace in the valley, they often think of you.
After all, you've inspired countless people to traverse rough terrain in search of you
and even think about you when playing popular computer games. Are you really up to all
the hype or are you all wet? You take shelter from the storm beneath trees, felled by
either loggers or beavers. If you were a shade of pink, it would be salmon.

These are totally not the questions I would have asked for this test, and yet the results are scarily accurate all the same. :)

I highly recommend following this link and watching the four YouTube Videos listed there. I know many of you are on slower connections but even so this is worth taking the time to see. It is a study on MSG, the effects and just as importantly where it can be found. The one that killed me was the baby food. Everyone really out to take a few minutes and check this out.

Drum rolls please!!!!!!!!! It is finally finished. The first on last years to do list is complete! *does happy dance*

Last year at Moonridge I put together a todo list of things I needed to do for the people who supported this wondrous cause. On the top of the list was a music video for the amazing ChelleToo who paid over $100 for a Horatio Hornblower vid.

I've been fretting over this so much over the last few months that I decided not to donate anything to Moonridge this year until I had finished the commitments from last year. So after 3 weeks of work this first video is finally done, uploaded and sent off to ChelleToo for her enjoyment.

I'm pretty proud of this vid but then I try not to send stuff out into the fandom world until I'm proud of it. The original concept came to me back in 2006 and survived the final cuts. It involves the timing of the clips and the rather unique musicality of the music. There are two new techniques that I had seen used on TV and figure out just for this. I had a bit of a problem with the timing between Premiere Pro and the final output and since timing is such a big part of this vid I spent since 4:00 am this morning until around 9:00 am working to fix just that. It's not perfect but it's close enough.

The vid is set to Linkin Park's "Easier to Run" and is Hornblower/Captain Pellew centric. I only used clips from the A&E mini-series so there is no actual slash but the implication is certainly there. If you are not into slash it could probably be watched from a gen perspective on just their relationship instead of their RELATIONSHIP if that makes any sense. Up to you.



In 30 days if I remember I'll upload the vid to my YouTube account for anyone else out there who is interested.

Sorry ChelleToo for taking this long! And sorry LMFA team because I know I'm supposed to be working on the counting I still owe you guys. I swear I'm going back to that right now.

I exercise to Due South.

This was not intentional but simply the way it worked out.
