Getting more and more excited about SnowblindRPG. Reservations open tomorrow, and applications open November 1. I am so READY. In my soul, anyway; I feel like I finally have a good handle on all the rules and gameplay. Now I'm like, AAAAAAAHHH. NEED TO MAKE ICONS. NEED TO WRITE MY APPLICATION. AAAAAAHHHH. Making icons will be interesting, I always used to foist that off on Lauren-of-the-Photoshop-skills, but she's not in this game, so I guess I'm probably on my own. Also, Steve is my first not-animated character? Live-action is harder to screencap, omg.

Snowblind thoughtfully supplies a test drive meme that you can use for the roleplay sample section of the application, so I let Steve loose in there. And oh my god, I'm already having so much fun.

Highlights:
-This thread with Grey from Snowpiercer ...So there's this thing where all of the doors in Norfinbury seal at sunset, and if you don't make it inside before that happens, you freeze to death in the night. YES, THIS IS THE KIND OF GAME IT IS. So Grey gets stuck outside and he and Steve have a long (mostly text-based) conversation on their tablets while Grey slowly succumbs to hypothermia and Steve keeps him company, knowing there's nothing else he can do for him. IT'S SUPER CHEERFUL. *lying face down on the floor, weeping* Grey's mun is awesome, we might play together more even if she doesn't end up applying.
-This thread with Koriand'r. Dear god but I love me some Starfire. We're only 25 comments in and they're snuggling by the fire and Steve's already been slightly traumatized by too much breast exposure and there was a slightly dub-con snogging (Kori pulled her 'what, I'm only kissing you because I want to learn French, I get absolutely nothing else out of this, I swear' schtick) and Steve doesn't know WHAT the heck just happened and now he's trying to flirt and it's a fucking trainwreck. I'm enjoying this so much.
-This Cecil Palmer of Night Vale who is EXCELLENT, and who is also dying slowly of hypothermia, and Steve is trying to be there for him but Cecil is FREAKING HIM THE HELL OUT, oh god I cackle out loud every time the thread updates.

And there's Jim from Treasure Planet, Commander Shepard from Mass Effect, Zack Fair from Final Fantasy, Ava from the MCU spin-off novel Forever Red, Roy Mustang, and Dick Grayson! :D

Seriously can't wait to jump into the game. Is gonna be fuuuuuuunnn! Steve's gonna be so miserablllllllllle! >:D

Article on io9: "DC plans to bring a prominent character out of the closet".

\o/

...Okay I swear I'm packing things now.

ETA: Of course, because I live in a hole (in the woods), and also I don't really pay attention to Marvel anyway, I missed this last month: "X-Men Gay Wedding: Northstar To Marry Boyfriend".

...I am packing, shut up.

I really don't have time for this, but if not now, NEVER. So, a super-quick drive-by update, just in case any of you have been wondering where the hell I've been for the last week or so.

-Thursday and Friday I went camping for work at Pepeiao Cabin with my boss Mark and my Canadian volunteer comrade-in-arms Caitlin. We tromped around in the Ka‘u Desert for a couple of days through what used to be native shrubland but is now largely alien grassland, checking up on outplants that were put in after a fire some years ago. It was fun! Mark and Caitlin are both great company, and Mark's a fantastic cook, and Caitlin brought a bottle of Jack, and I got to see some cool endemics that I'd never seen/heard of before, and the stars were pretty at night, and it was awesome.

-DANCING A LOT! DANCING A LOT SOME MORE! NEW JOB! )

-Here watch a cute video about seal cuddles:

-THIS WAS NOT AS QUICK AS I INTENDED IT TO BE.

...Yeah, I'm just going to copypaste word-for-word how I found this in [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs' journal. I'll just... let it speak for itself.

"What kind of adult does a kid become after surviving a trip to a cannibalistic witch’s gingerbread house?

That’s the premise of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (out March 2), which uses the centuries-old German folktale as a preamble to a larger story of vengeance and the bonds between siblings — particularly abused ones.

Next Thursday, look for a trailer from the Paramount film. But for now, we see a first look at Jeremy Renner’s Hansel and Gemma Arterton’s Gretel, all grown up."



(Full article including interview with Arterton.)

SO VERY FUCKING MANY KINDS OF YES. Also omg omg omg ZOE BELL is in it!! As an actress! (Rather than as a stunt double, I mean.)

I AM SO EXCITE.
zolac_no_miko: (WHEEEEEE~!!)
OMG YOU GUYS HOBBIT TRAILER~!!

Fml, LJ still doesn't want to let me embed YouTubes, what is the deal. ...ANYWAY, WATCH IT. :DDDD

...A YEAR IS TOO FAR AWAY. DD:
zolac_no_miko: (self-explanatory)
Okay so it's past my bedtime already and as usual I am underslept (there is really not enough time in a day to work eight hours and commute and do all of the things I want/need to do), but I'm going to do a drive-by post of THINGS, because if anything I am about to get busier. When the fuck am I going to do my Christmas shopping oh my gaaaaaaaaaaawd!! T_T

First off, Ted Maddry is here with his girlfriend Lea... he's here to teach a Blues workshop this weekend. Mom's on O‘ahu for work, so I picked them up from the airport and fed them and showed them the ropes. It was instantly clear that they are both fabulous people, as I have come to expect from the traveling Swing/Blues instructor crowd; I'm really looking forward to learning from Ted and to hanging out with them and showing them around the island for the next week. Ted bought us beer (Maui Brewing Company Coconut Porter oh my gaaaaaaawwwwd~!) and said some really complimentary things about my mother (that he's been hearing her name from everyone on the circuit as a workshop coordinator who is supremely excellent to work with, and having corresponded with her for this workshop he can now see why) that I hope he will repeat in her presence, because awww~.

So, yeah, I'mma be busy playing tour guide and Blues dancing and having fun, and then next week I'm going on a Waipi‘o-Waimanu backpacking trip with some people, which I am super excited about; with this trip and the Labor Day Mauna Loa summit adventure that's two out of three crossed off of my Big Island Backpacking Bucket List... now if I can only get Pele to cooperate so I can camp at Nāpau-! ...Oh man, and then I've got the Haleakala backpacking trip coming up in January... SO MUCH AWESOME HIKING YAY.

And now a list of Things To Flail About:

- For those of you who enjoy Red vs. Blue, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog, the sillier bits of Doctor Who, and/or THINGS THAT ARE AWESOME, I highly recommend The Visitor from the Future (Le Visiteur du Futur), a French science fiction/comedy web series (don't worry, it comes with subtitles). The show is, in general, much like its title character: adorable, frenetic, and slightly insane (oh my god I have such a crush on the Visitor and his crazyface, for serious, SO IN LOVE), and it's full of time-travel shenanigans and robots and zombies and silliness. So. WATCH IT.

Continued under the cut: rock and roll, naked Fassbender, jet packs, lava, SPACE, and that guy I like. And Batman eats a pony. )

THAT TOOK WAY LONGER THAN I MEANT IT TO, OH GOD I'M SO TIRED, okay bye now!

:D
