My WIP version of a 7th Harry Potter book- not Deathly Hallows compliant: entirely different version of post-HBP events.

Rather to my own surprise, I wrote a brief Harry Potter/No Country for Old Men fic out of the blue last night; no Deathly Hallows spoilers. (In fact, this is not Deathly Hallows compliant in any way.) Enjoy.

A Meeting of Two Wizards. )

Recently, the most estimable [livejournal.com profile] bodlon mentioned that he'd like to read Tron/Big Lebowski crossover fic. This being much too good an idea to be allowed to lie fallow, I became curious- could one take quite possibly the laziest man in Los Angeles county, and put him at the heart of an action movie, with even a half-serious (if only half, mind you- this is hopefully more of a "fish out of water" story, less of a crack!fest) story resulting? A couple of re-viewings later, I had something that I called...

The Ballad of El Userino )

Is anyone else having issues with Facebook?

Belatedly, I realize that I hadn't updated reworkings of my LJ version of the old Harry Potter story to the DW version lately. Well, I think that's pretty much a "stet" on those changes.

Annnnnnnd just got randomly subscribed/access by some account with Cyrillic lettering. No offense, [personal profile] sposterig, but Cyrillic isn't my favorite thing to see in my blog just now.

I suspect that for the next few months, typing my LJ URL will be a reflex, like starting to walk towards an ex's house.

I'm thumbing through LJ's new User Agreement and all I can think is, "What new devilry is this...?" LJ, you and I may have reached the end of the road with each other.

Does anyone know why Clarke never sold more stories to Campbell and Astounding? Particularly given that Clarke started writing fiction professionally post-WWII, with Heinlein having moved on to better things, it seems like Clarke would have been tailor-made for Campbell's needs.

"A New York judge has granted three people who had previously been in a polyamorous relationship “tri-custody” of their 10-year-old son. The New York Post reports that the Suffolk County Supreme Court Judge H. Patrick Leis III’s ruling is the first of its kind in the state."

I'll be damned: it was on this date, fifteen years ago, that I first walked down the steps at Rose's Turn, thereby changing my life and social circle quite radically. Those who are still in my life, and those who have left in one fashion or another- thank you, all of you.

What are your ten favorite SF novels? (As Jack Wranovics can tell you, I often have problems with "favorrite" lists; I'm using it here to mean "made a strong initial impression on you; hasn't been egregiously crapped on by age's changed perspective," My own listL 1) Frankenstein 2) War of the Worlds 3) Hitchhiker's 4) Nova 5) Dying Inside 6) Dream Park 7) We Who Are About To... 8) More Than Human 9) 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea 10) Dragon's Egg

Just heard an unsubstantiated rumor that Bill Maher used to date Ann Coulter; I'm pretty sure that hearing this is what made Bob Geldof shave off his eyebrows in Pink Floyd: the Wall.

If you squint a bit, Oakland's Frank H. Ogawa Plaza looks quite a bit like New York City's Union Square, a pleasant memory of protest days gone by (although Dubya looks like the Messiah next to this toadstool in a suit). People laughing, and chanting, and carrying signs such as MINE GRABS BACK and MAKE AMERICA THINK AGAIN (one read HE TREATS OBJECTS LIKE PEOPLE, making me wonder if the artist was a Lebowski fan). I ran out of spoons quickly, but it was nice to reacquaint myself with an echo of that old angry energy, and to remember that (as more than one sign had it) we will not go gentle into that good night.

Trying to find a movie to watch for Inauguration Day; Parallax View, Manchurian Candidate, and Taxi Driver are all looking good.
