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 )

When the Weinsteins left Miramax to form The Weinstein Company in 2005, I vaguely recall hassles with (Miramax owner) Disney over distribution of Fahrenheit 9/11 being given as a primary reason for the break. Now, I'm wondering if other factors may have encouraged the split with family-friendly Disney.

The definition of unthinking male physical privilege: when you catch yourself thinking, "Hey, that time I was groped, but immediately decided that I'm bigger than him and in no way felt actually threatened or invaded, so just ignored it and didn't even think of it again? Naah, I was safe- didn't feel like sexual assault to me." And then I put it from my mind, turned my back on him, and walked away, unstressed. The privilege of being male, and relatively large and strong, and able to police my personal space

(By contrast, I can remember adults touching me when I was a child- in no way were the touches sexually invasive, or even socially unacceptable- many of them took place in the church I attended at the time-but they were *emotionally* invasive enough to child me, unable to effectively police my own boundaries- a capability I unthinkingly take for granted now- that I remember them with far more discomfort.)

Emotional health seems to be- slowly- turning a corner; I suspect Dad's health, money issues, the gravid, red sun in the cough-inducing sky, and many other elements have been working together to create a perfect storm in my subconscious. Things seem to be on an upswing, all in all; we shall see.

"In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since. 'Plastics,' he said."

For the last few days, ash and smoke have been constants: swollen red sun setting; constant wood-burning smell (a far more negative smell for me than when I lived in New York, where it was simply a harbinger of outdoor cooking or some such); now, occasional flakes of ash drifting down like snow. Belatedly, it occurs to me that while there are many scenes in cinema involving ash drifting down, there are absolutely none I an think of where it turns out to be a Good Thing.

In the past few days, i've had a kitchen sink faucet come off in my hand, drenching me; a job interview finally came back, in the negative; I've lost a free pass to a movie I really wanted to see; I've lost the chain and lock for my bike. I suspect I should just pack it in, and write a book to be titled Fate's Microaggressions Against Me.

On a lighter note, meme asks me for five movies that I would show a potential SO to demonstrate what type of person I am: 1) Brazil 2) 2001: A Space Odyssey 3) Flash Gordon 4) Where the Wild Things Are 5) Seven Samurai

Guy who opted to show me a closeup posthumous photo of the Vegas shooter without warning last night: WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING?

OK, that said, going to try to write an evaluation of someone's fic, and also trying not to have nightmares forever would be good.

If you have a recent photo of yourself, post it here, OK? Missing faces today.

Brain full of jello to0day, but i have a vague, inchoate feeling that I'd like to get back into gaming this year.

I feel as though someone brandished a D&D holy symbol at Bannon and cried, "AWAY, THING OF EVIL!"
