I can't believe I keep forgetting to do this! Thank you to brynspikess
for the lovely shiny v-gift!
I only have one class on Tuesdays, so I wanted to spend today avoiding my homework by recording the fic I chose for chromatic_podfic
. That's due March 2nd, and if I wait much longer it'll get crowded out by the 40 page paper that's due later that week. Which I haven't started writing yet. Which totally isn't my fault. Which I actually had to have a meeting about with people at my school, and they agreed it wasn't my fault. SO THERE.
*ahem* Anyway. IN ADDITION to an un-started 40 page paper, a short presentation, and two midterms in the next two weeks, I'm working on my chromatic_podfic
, a podfic for crinklysolution
, and my podficbigbang
. In addition to three or four other podfics in various stages of planning and/or completion.
And! Hey! You can still win my podficcing services in support of Planned Parenthood at fandom_helps
! Bidding is open until 11:30 EST TONIGHT!
And despite the dubious state of affairs described in the last paragraph, I actually have a pretty fast turnaround time on podfics won in charity auctions. Two weeks to a month, usually. (Just, um, not the next two weeks. Probably.)
I also still have a podfic up for auction at fund_jcollins
. That auction closes on March 7th.
Also, I talked about The Walking Dead in my last post, and then watched the most recent episode...I really can't endorse that show. It has such an incredible look to it, but the content is pretty fucking misogynistic. And not in an intelligent, meta-textual, commenting-on-human-nature kind of way. It's not that humanity collapses and the survivors revert to base primate behavior...it's just dumb
. The amount of time I can forestall disappointment in a bad show is directly proportional to how excited I was about it before it aired, and The Walking Dead finally crossed that line for me. It's been too dumb for too long.
Oh hey, I realized I started a thought like five paragraphs ago and never finished it. I was going to record podfic today. But instead I'm drinking hot tea and Emergen-C and downing cold medicine that makes me do loopy things like get distracted mid-paragraph and wander into a monologue about zombies apropos of completely nothing (as you do)...
I think I'd better get out of this post while I still can. TL;DR: I have a cold. That's all I really meant to say. That, and thank you to brynspikess
, whose v gift was a pleasant and welcome surprise last week.
