It occurs to me I've been on twitter a lot the last two months, but nowhere else. So - hi. Still here. Grieving, but here.

Comments disabled as I think I've had as much sympathy as I can handle (it's much appreciated, just A Lot sometimes).

So my computer developed a corrupt registry file )

ANYWAY, it's nice to have my machine back, with nothing lost. And the fridge and freezer are stocked again after an epic grocery trip, assisted by a rent credit from my landlady. I learned a ton in the After Effects class. mention of parental health issue ) So life continues okay.

Media has been a bit thin on the ground of late, as you might guess. I'm reading Robin Hobb's Farseer Trilogy many years after [livejournal.com profile] synn gifted them to me; after a slow start, am now ~100 pages into book two and so far so good. Watching Die Another Day and now Skyfall on TV in the background; first time seeing either. Need to get back to source watching for the auction vid, and there's a belated Equinox treat that's finally possible now that the movie I need is out on DVD.

It looks like I'm not bringing any vids to Vividcon this year, which feels weird. But I do get a [personal profile] corbae as a roommate.

Good wishes to those of you who are struggling. Greetings to everyone else.

I was wondering last night how the hell it could take me six hours to fill in and sync commentary for 15 minutes' worth of footage...but upon inspection this morning, it turns out the answer is "because that was 1300 words' worth of commentary". *FACEHANDS*

(*facehands* because the side thing I'm working on at present is 40 minutes in full, and oh dear god I don't even want to think about the kind of wordcount I'll be dealing with before it's done, at this rate. XD; I'm just saying, the above's what I average per half hour LP episode!)

I have totally become someone who only posts to announce new work. Oops? (In my defense, I've assumed no one's much interested in Don't Starve Gameplay Anecdote #58765, because, uh, that's pretty much the kind of thing I'd have been posting otherwise. :D;)

Anyway:


Don't Starve: Shipwrecked #5: Brains and Beauty by credoimprobus

In which I prepare for the fast approaching hurricane season, and stumble across some more cool shit along the way.


As a side note, I spent the day yesterday messing around with encoding settings and running test renders, because I kind of got to the point where I couldn't live with the terrible video quality I'd been settling for to keep my upload times reasonable, ahaha. (My internet speed in general may have been tripled earlier this year when my connection got a free upgrade (\o/!), but alas it did fuck-all for my upload speeds. :/ :/ Unless that's something on Dailymotion's end; I DON'T KNOW.) Bottom line is this episode looks WAY better than the previous four, even if it's still well far from looking genuinely great. And it only added an hour to my upload time! (I'm not even being facetious; it was already averaging at 4+ hours, an extra one is basically nothing at that point, haha.)
 
 
 
The wonderful [personal profile] lithiumdoll made me the Farscape Aeryn Sun vid of my heart! I'M SO PLEASED.

It beautifully explores Aeryn's complicated emotional connection to her PK past, and how that affected her relationships with the Moya crew. It shows her unlearning of her authoritarian upbringing and learning to fight the power. It lovingly pays tribute to her relationships with all the other characters. Oh my heart. <3333
