→ Apparently Callum is going to be in this upcoming season of 24 with Katee Sackhoff. Source, linked from [livejournal.com profile] greycoupon. While the BSG and Leoben/Kara fangirl in me is delighted at the news, the rest of me just hopes that Callum doesn't play some Russian terrorist with a bad accent. (Please?)

→ Linked from [livejournal.com profile] laurashapiro. Vidders are encouraged to avoid submitting videos to vidorama, which I talked about some time last week and their slash ban. More info and discussion from [livejournal.com profile] mresundance here.

→ I always forget stuff. ;(

First, I just got back from voting for Obama! The lines were short but the place was happily busy! Very efficient!

Second, Callum Keith Rennie cast as the lead character in a new pilot? Is this news? Or am I slow? Either way, it could be promising!

So for anyone who is dying for a dose of Callum at Galactica Four, [livejournal.com profile] siluria is angel because she posted a con report as well at lots of pictures right over here. There's also a lot of Rick Worthy who looks adorable and smiley.

Just! One sleeve up, one down. Aww. I can't even!

Absolute and total glee!

*sigh*

krickets: (actors | ckr; pretty)
001. I watched The Invisible yesterday with my dad and I swear I'd forgotten how pretty Callum was in that movie. Just... yeah. Is it wrong that I want to read or write Larson/Annie fic now?

002. I have so much SGA to catch up on but for some reason I have been avoiding watching it. I think it may be because the hugest chunks of it I've watched have been when I've been feeling really crappy. So... it's psychological? I think I'm allergic to Sheppard or something.

003. I made this crazy-ass deal with [livejournal.com profile] mistojen, all her idea by the way, that I'd agree to watch one season of Who and two seasons of T'wood if she watched the first three seasons of BSG. So I'm about four eps into Who. (Which, dude, cliffhanger, so episode five is going to be watched tonight.) Admittedly, it's a little too cheesy and campy sci fi for me, but I enjoy the dynamics between the Doc and Rose so I'm willing to look past the silly stuff for the good of... keeping up my end of the bargain. Hehe.

Watch, by the end of this she'll have me hooked or something. Have I been duped? Though I feel a bit badly because I've got a leg up on her, I already know a lot about the Who-verse and T'wood. (Yes that's what I'm calling it.) Because of my oh-so-knowledgeable flist, of course. *glomps*

004. Been putting this last part off. Supernatural and me? I think... we're divorced? i wish i knew how to quit you, show. show me how? )

A couple things:

001. X-Files 2 teaser trailer brought to my attention by [livejournal.com profile] scriggle: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMgJmjAxMSE is anyone really avoiding trailers for spoilers? cut just in case, even though you can bet I'm so not going to be talking about the plot ) *tries to contain squee*

002. is this a spoiler? minor lost casting thing ) I. Am. So. Exctied.

003. They should add the word "frak" to the dictionary. So, so tired of firefox telling me I'm spelling it wrong.

I just want to elaborate, on the little vidding challege over here that Dayln posted last night. (We cut each other tiny bits of songs to vid to in ways we're not used to.)

What Dayln and I talked about was basically that we already have certain styles of our own and at this point it's hard to experiment. (At least for me.) Because there's less of that "let's see how this looks, it doesn't have to be perfect" mentality that there is when you first start vidding in the first place.

After a while, the level of creativity becomes more intensified, I think. At the same time, it's no longer about what looks "cool" and what new effect or trick you can "show off" but about what suits the story and about what looks "best." This can mean different things for different people, obviously. And since we are creatures of habit, (and fear!) we tend to stick to what we know. Even moreso when we do have an established audience (even a small one) that kind of knows what to expect of us.

For me, it was just a personal challenge. When we made them, we had no intention of ever showing them to anyone but each other. It wasn't a competition either. I guess we're just not wired that way. Haha.

That being said, I think that overall, Dayln's is the most successful out of this little experiment. (You could say that the basic elements of what she was trying to do are already present in her vids, so it was less of a departure, clip choice and clever cutting are par for the course in any vid - or you could say that she's just a superior vidder, which I happen to believe and tell her so on a daily basis.) In fact I liked it so much I told her she had to post it, but she wouldn't let me get away with not posting mine, so there it is.

Mine (a Firefly vidlet) is kind of all over the place in terms of style. But that was kind of the point, just to try different things.

Callum and HCL girls, perk up your ears! Dayln's little vidlet is a hot Joe/Billy romp to twenty-something seconds of Jealous of Your Cigarette by Hawksley Workman. Run, don't walk!
