I had computer difficulties right after I finished this vid and lost the signed version and the drafts, so the DL link is to a higher-quality version of the unsigned one. ???? is me.


This was a love-letter to a fandom I'm not really in anymore. I made myself cry almost constantly while working on it, so I'm glad from the comments that other people feel the same. I didn't think I still cared this much about these films but I proved myself so, so wrong. Clipping was a nightmare, even after I decided there was no possible way to do a whole-trilogy vid. I hadn't watched any of the special features in literally ages and I had forgotten exactly how much there is!

I'm super fucking proud of this thing, all five-plus minutes of it.

"what the fuck is gwen even talking about anymore" post part two: ladies! )

so i just had a conversation that went like this:

Chava: Why is everything suddenly going onhiatus until March?
*on hiatus
Gwen: so you have nothing else to do except watch skating with me? :P
Chava: Heh, maybe
Gwen: do it do it
Chava: You'll have to send me some then
Gwen: -steeples fingers-
Chava: Uh-oh
What have I done?


and this is much easier and more efficient than sending her individual links to things. plus i can throw a DW link at other people too!!
what the fuck is gwen talking about all the time anyway pt 1: men's singles )

When we were at Nationals they played all these montages between events and one of them was really great and made me super emotional and I was like, "I could do something like that!"

...This is nothing like that.

(It's mostly about Kurt's ridiculously shiny pants.) )

i'm too lazy to figure out how to embed more than one video in a tumblr post (is that even a thing you can do) so this is going here! i keep finding people's skating-related top-ten lists and they're all varying degrees of boring and infuriating, so i'm doing my own that are neither. but top fives because that's easier to do than tens.

weirdly specific category for the week: top five second-place finishes by canadians at major international competitions, 1980-2002 )

So one of the things that happened at the CSOI show which sparked this whole terrible figure skating feelings spiral was that Joannie Rochette skated to Robyn's Indestructible. In a shiny black catsuit. (Here's video of the Vancouver version.)

I've been in a lot of internetless places lately, wherein I coped with boredom by making icons. Credit for the original photos goes to Tina Tyan, Brett Barden and David Carmichael, and Andrea Chempinski.

Icon meme via [personal profile] evewithanapple

1. Reply to this post with PIXELS!, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.


I like talking about icons, okay )

(Content Note: In-context, the ~sexy photos~ are taken coercively, but that's not apparent from the caps I chose?)

I have a lot of Thoughts about this scene, how it is about queer ladies co-opting the male gaze narrative inherent to pin-ups, but I'm not particularly articulate at the moment, so you're getting icons instead.

I used to be so much better at coming up with appropriate quotes/lyrics/etc for cut texts I am drawing a blank here... )

(This post doubles as a one-day-and-five-minutes belated Canada Day post)

There were a lot of things I was considering doing if I got this square, it applies very readily to nearly all my fandoms.

But then while I was messing around on youtube watching through everything Kurt Browning has ever done, I came across this:


Kurt: "I'm trying to skate as a figure skater in hockey skates. It's not a comedy, it's a real solo, I just want to show a different aspect of my skating. And again, after twenty years, you're always trying to reinvent yourself. And Canadians love hockey, so I hope it'll work. But it's-- I'm not relaxed. At all. Not at any second in this program am I relaxed. I've got a hat to deal with, and a tie flying around, and a jacket, and these hockey skates, with about this much [gestures, about an inch, inch] balance spot on it, and I have to remember constantly that I'm in hockey skates. If I forget for a second, I'll switch back to figure skating mode and I'll be on my ass in a split second. And I don't relax until I'm done, and even then, I gotta get off the ice."

So what we have here is an internal hyper-awareness of the fact that he's dressed in clothes that aren't his, while outwardly projecting ease and coolness. That's-- well, definitely dress-up kink, and it's incredibly hot. The tension of trying to skate clean and perform well-- perform Sinatra and Jagger respectively-- while not letting yourself actually be comfortable. There is some fascinating shit going on here. I could sit here and babble excitedly about this all night, but this is a picspam post so probably I should get to the pictures and such.

Two more videos and a bunch of photos behind the cut )

are you happy now, Lufwood?

Things that need to get done before tomorrow:

* approximately a million loads of dishes
* assorted other post-canada day cleanup tasks
* approximately a half million loads of laundry
* at least two chapters of french homework

Things i've accomplished so far today instead:

* posted a bunch of figure skating videos to tumblr
* made and consumed chocolate strawberries
* baked a loaf of challah
* lots of KB brainstorming
* now i'm frying some eggs to eat with the bread

Oops?

(At least I've got things done, even if they were the wrong things...)

Still working on getting figure skating out of my system, as anyone following my tumblr has probably noticed.

Except that also superheroes? So here are some pictures )

I forget whether this is a thing people know about me but: I watch figure skating and it gives me a lot of feelings; this comes of being raised on Browning and Orser and Stojko and Witt and Brasseur & Eisler and Bourne & Kraatz.

So for the ten years that it's been a thing, I've suggested that we go to Stars on Ice Canada. This year mom actually said yes.

This is a Stars on Ice reaction post, since I have more to say about it than I do about The Avengers )

Apparently I make vids now. That's a thing that happens. Who knew, right?

Fandom: The Runaways (2010)

Give me a fandom we have in common* and a non-character-specific prompt** (song lyrics, themes/concepts, colour palettes, au settings...) and I'll make you... Something. A drawing, a fanmix, an icon set, photoshoppery a BUNCH OF WORDS. But definitely Something.

While I was avoiding working on all these midterm papers (so much work) (why is February) I started wondering what various Monster High characters would look like species-swapped (is that even a thing, it's a thing now) and then... this happened.

This one time Scott posted a fanmix made entirely of Blink-182 songs. I've been wanting to do a one-artist fanmix since then, but I couldn't find a combination that grabbed me enough. But last night I watched Back to the Future Part II for the first time in approximately forever, and this morning on the bus I was listening to Exile in Guyville, and then.... this happened.

It looks like shit and it must be America: A 1985A Lorraine Baines-McFly-Tannen fanmix

In Back to the Future Part II, 1985A is the alternate timeline where (due to time travel shenanigans) Biff Tannen becomes the richest man in America, has George McFly murdered, and marries Lorraine Baines-McFly. Biff is emotionally abusive, coercing Lorraine into getting unwanted plastic surgery, and threatening her kids if she leaves him. As in the original 1985, Lorraine is an alcoholic. Word-of-God says that a few years after we see her (approximately 1990A) Lorraine gives up and shoots Biff.

Pick one of the fandoms below. In a comment, post a character name from that fandom.

You might get meta. You might get a drabble. Depends on both my brain and my time.


1. Bomb Girls
2. YJ (comicsverse)
3. Once and Future King/general Arthurian nonsense
4. The Wolf House
5. Gotham (post-Crisis/pre-reboot)
6. HCL-verse (all three films, vampire AU or otherwise)
7. Space Cases
8. St. Trinian's (2007)
9. Um, Slings & Arrows I guess?
10. Not sure if the Back to the Future feelings I have right now are properly fannish or not. Let's put it here and find out.

(It was surprisingly hard to think of ten things I feel actively fannish about right now, this is unusual for me)
