I'm taking this excuse to repost this podfic with updated links (previously it was only available as an m4a - long, boring story that boils down to my general cluelessness). If you'd like this podfic in a more normal file format, and/or if you'd like a copy with some amazing cover art attached, the links are posted below!

nickelmountain: (waffles are amazing)
I recorded six short podfics for the Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology II at [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon this year. Serious props are due to all the mods and betas involved in putting this thing together, and I strongly encourage all of you to set aside some time to really look at that cover art. It's amazing.

I haven't had the chance to listen to the anthology yet, but I'm so excited to see so many incredible readers voicing the work of so many amazing authors. I absolutely loved listening to last year's anthology, and I cannot wait to dive into this year's.

If you listen closely to the stories that I chose this year, you might determine: a) that I'm really into waffles, or; b) that I'm really into canons in which terrible, violent acts are inflicted on women. I guess both must be true. I love waffles and female friendship (and female more-than-friendship), but I'm also really interested in stories of survival and resilience. I love tough-minded women, and I love them all the more for their flaws, their hurts, and their humanity.

The stories are listed below. Links to the entire anthology in m4b and mp3 format are available through the main post (linked to above), as are links to all the individual mp3s. The links below are to the mp3s on box.com, where you can download or stream any of these podfics.


I'm running a race and these are the fics I read )


It was interesting to notice the pattern in my preferences exemplified by these six podfics. I'd never really thought much about exactly how much the theme of violence against women threads through so many of my favorite shows, books, and movies. Maybe, as Emily Prentiss might point out, it's just that violence against women is ubiquitous. Maybe it's not that I like stories in which women get hurt - maybe it's that there are so few out there in which women don't get hurt. Maybe that's exactly why I'm so in love with Leslie Knope. She's smart and funny and capable, and she pursues her goals with a dogged feminism and optimism that defies you not to root for her. Don't get me wrong, I like stories in which women survive and thrive, but there's something so refreshing about a woman like Leslie, whose success story doesn't have to include a chapter in which she overcomes violence and pain. 

Anyway. These thoughts are half-formed, and need more time to gel. I'll write more about this later. I hope you like these six stories as much as I did, and I encourage you to check out the entire anthology. Awesome Ladies are awesome, indeed.

nickelmountain: (a lovely day)
So, a few weeks ago over on the Twitter[livejournal.com profile] bessyboo and [livejournal.com profile] cantarina1 started talking about how awesome it would be to have sort of a Secret Santa thing for podficcers. Lots and lots of other podficcers agreed. So bess and ca'rina organized the #InformalTwitterPodficExchange and assigned us all recipients. I got [livejournal.com profile] fire_juggler; my gift to her is posted below.

It turns out [livejournal.com profile] fire_juggler also got me. The links were delivered on Christmas, but due to travel and inadequate technology, I wasn't able to listen until last night. Oh my god, you guys, I cannot flail hard enough. Her picks for me were PERFECT. She chose two short SPN fics, both of them pre-series and by writers I really enjoy. And her reading? Fantastic. She reads with such a clear, pleasant voice, and her pace is spot on. The longer of the two podfics features Jessica and Dean, and I loved the dialogue between them. Both podfics are incredibly awesome.
  
****Updated! The links to both podfics are posted below.   I highly recommend them! Both fics get right to the heart of the Winchester family, and [livejournal.com profile] fire_juggler captures the sadness and sweetness in them perfectly. Check them out!****

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] fire_juggler for the wonderful gifts, and thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bessyboo and [livejournal.com profile] cantarina1 for putting this whole thing together!

Podfic as a fan art is still relatively small, even if it's growing quickly. There are positive steps that can be taken to help podfic as a fan art grow. To learn how check out [livejournal.com profile] pod_aware on LJ or DW.

It's the last day of [livejournal.com profile] pod_aware! I don't have a podcast or meta to post, but I do come bearing podfic. I started these a couple of months ago and got hung up somewhere along the way. I felt okay about one but wanted to re-record the other, and I really wanted to post them together, and blah blah blah. I love Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. I love these two short fics by [livejournal.com profile] mannaplowsk. This is what I did about it.
