A meme, to keep the gray matter going.

1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
2. Write a fic of fifteen words or fewer for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

My list:

1. Mary Morstan (Ritchieverse)
2. Liz Lemon
3. Captain Monterey Jack
4. Reboot Kirk
5. Marita Covarrubias
6. Ellen Fanshaw
7. Death (Sandman)
8. Dana Whittaker
9. Fran Katzenjammer
10. Benedick

Take one down, pass it around )

That was quite diverting. Your turn...

Uncommon by [ profile] doorrepairgirl.

So what seems like quite a long time ago [ profile] doorrepairgirl set out to make a Noo Trek vid to Shatner's cover of "Common People". At last it is here! and I looove it. It's smart and funny and has an actual narrative, and she pulls off some pretty cool stuff with POV once Joe Jackson's verse ("Like a dog lying in a corner...") kicks in. (Not all of which I caught the first time around, but I've watched it a few times while waiting for her to finish posting.)

It's sort of Kirk/Spock -- sort of. Look, just watch it. You won't be sorry.

Oh dear. I appear to have done this.

Title: I'm on a Boat
Song Artist: Lonely Island feat. T-Pain
Fandom: Star Trek (reboot)
Pairing: everybody/the motherfucking boat

Watch I'm on a Boat streaming on imeem

This vid obviously owes its existence to [ profile] sparkly_stuff's inspirational I'M ON A SHIP. It is also, fair warning, my first vid. Basically I waited a couple days to see if anyone else was going to make a vid like this, and they didn't, so I did. (See ETA below! The internet is big.)

Special thanks as usual to [ profile] doorrepairgirl for support and brainstorming. Oh, and many thanks to this tutorial for n00bs. Fortunately I went into this with some iMovie experience already under my belt, but I sure needed newbie tips all the same.

I, uh, have no other real notes. I think it kind of speaks for itself. (And what it says, I hope, is, "You can't stop me, motherfucker, 'cause I'm on a boat.")

Whoa! Exciting ETA: It has already been done! Our approaches are different, but we are in agreement about "I fucked a mermaid". \o/

Trek again

I just think it's very, very telling that the two standout deeply aesthetically appropriate vids (that I'm aware of) for reboot Trek so far are [ profile] butterfly's Circus (Britney Spears) and [ profile] talitha78's Poker Face (Lady Gaga).

That is all.

I actually have a lot of New Trek thoughts, but I'm so out of practice making big list-y fannish reaction posts that I don't think I'll get 'em organized.

Here, though, is something I haven't seen mentioned on the flist so far about a thing with a planet )
