krickets: (KILLING. we're back here again.)
Hey guys, I know this is a poetic day to be posting this, since Google Reader is officially offline, but what are your favorite blogs, feeds, etc. that you follow? (Could be a blog about TV, Book, Movie, Entertainment/Pop Culture, Cooking, Art, Tech, Travel, anything at all.)

Does anybody have an archive of our own invite or know of where someone can get one? I know someone who needs one but I don't have one personally.

Help me point them in the right direction?

krickets: (BUFFY gonna be a fireman when the floods)
The past few weeks I've been re-watching Veronica Mars and I have a random, completely obscure question for anyone who may have watched the show.

Toward the end of season two, do they ever explain why Mr. Manning paid to bail out Lucky, the janitor/former bat-boy who was after Woody Goodman? (Mr. Manning is Meg Manning's abusive father -- if you remember Meg was played by Alona Tal.)

Either I haven't gotten there yet or I missed it the second time around. I'm super curious about this!

I need a Veronica Mars icon, darnit.

ETA: Someone from the [livejournal.com profile] veronica_mars community answered. It's not super exciting, I'd just forgotten all about it. Here's the answer if you're curious:
Meg tells Veronica earlier in the season that Lucky is a friend of the family. He does handyman stuff for their family and her father just loves him. There's not much more to it than that.

Help?

I know it's a shitty night to be posting such a question but if this falls by the wayside I'll just re-post the question later.

I have been using surpasshosting for several years to host everydamnthing.net -- the thing is, despite the service always being excellent, I am not sure it is worth the cost and I am pretty sure it's about time to renew the domain. I'm not really sure what I want to do next.

Does anybody know of a cheap and yet reliable hosting company with some history?

Right now I am on monthly and I pay $6.00 a month. It doesn't sound like much, but that's $72.00 a year times several years.

Yes, I have my never-updated vidding site there, but as I hadn't been vidding for about three years I hadn't used in in a very long time and I haven't gotten around to putting my two latest vids there. I haven't even updated the main index page in years. YEARS. It's kind of a joke. Essentially there is an enormous amount of space which I am paying for that I don't use. Really the only thing I use it for is the prompt vault, which does use PHP -- so I would need that feature, and a small message board with really only two remaining active members. Myself and one other person who I don't connect with in any other way. Migrating the message board would not be necessary as I don't see a problem in just starting up a whole new one.

Even if I was utilizing the existing pages I have hosted there, it would only be a tiny fraction of the size of my service package.

The thing I most don't want to lose is the prompt vault. So if anybody has any suggestions I would be grateful.

→ Modern Family! I'm so glad this show is back. Loved the premiere. ♥ This family needs to never leave my television screen.

→ I'm not really warming up so season three of Sons of Anarchy. One teeny thing though: 3.03 )

→ Tonight is a big night for TV comebacks apparently. Community! Oh my gosh I'm so excited! About Grey's and Fringe I'm only mildly excited/sorta interested. I can't explain it.

→ Apparently yesterday it was six years to the day that lost premiered. Seriously? What? I'm not ready for the time warp, Dr. Frank N Furter.

→ Oh my god, I can't write! *headdesk*

→ Did anybody watch The Event or Hawaii Five-O? I am thinking about trying both of them.

→ I don't know what I'm thinking, I watch too much as it is!

→ My folks are in Germany and I've been experimenting with grilling. I've never really grilled on my own. So far I've made a steak and two hamburger patties. I think I might try chicken tomorrow night. [I was going to do chicken tonight, but I thought I would make frozen pizza instead, lol.] Does anybody have any chicken grilling tips? How long do you keep it on each side? How hot do you want it? Do you turn it a lot? What's a good marinade? Etc.

→ Are leg warmers as a present for a three-year-old weird?

→ I have a crafty project I want to make for Halloween and one I want to make for Christmas -- maybe as Christmas gifts. Neither of them are too complicated so I'm crossing my fingers that they turn out alright. I'm not so much of a craft person -- but for some reason I want to try!

I was having lunch the other day and they were playing this music that sounded so intriguing and yet familiar at the same time, but the restaurateur didn't know what was playing. So here's my best description of the music. Can anyone tell me if they know anything like this?

It was Asian of some kind, eerie, had a sort of ghost-like/creepy sound to it. There was a female lead [soprano?] and she was singing in an operatic style but not belting it out, more of a soft tone. Not sure of the language. It was slow and mellow but also kinda sweeping?

See, nobody is going to have a clue, but I guess I had to give it a shot. Any ideas?

Is livejournal logging anyone else out randomly? That's twice now that I've been home and had to log back in. I thought maybe it might have something to do with me logging in at work yesterday but that's not the case this latest time. I'm gonna be pissed if this becomes a regular thing.

Does anybody know how to make a post so that it doesn't show up on your flist? I know I've seen people do that before. I have about 6 fics to post and they all seem a bit too long to put in a single post, so I don't want to clog the flists. If I can figure it out, I will just post a "summary" post after the fact with links instead.

Random question, flisties:

I recently watched something, a TV show or a movie, in which the characters have a conversation about the movie Groundhog Day. (Which is totally an awesome movie, by the way.) They talk about how Phil wakes up every day on Groundhog Day, and he tries everything he can think of to break the cycle, and then finally one day he gets out of the loop. I know the question is posed, what does Phil do different on that last day to get out of the loop?

Now, I can remember neither the show/movie this came from, or the way they answer the question. I can't tell which one I want to know more. It's killing me. Ring any bells?

Anyone?

So I got this new computer a couple of weeks ago and I'm pretty excited because I'll finally get to burn things like vids (and maybe even some other stuff!) to DVD. Only, when I try to use Windows DVD Maker it doesn't accept AVI at all, telling me the file is invalid. Which... is a problem because lots and lots of vids that I download are in that format, and pretty much everything else I download too.

So what do you guys use to burn AVI? I'm pretty bummed about the whole thing to be quite honest. I tried another program called Aimersoft DVD Creator and while it worked like a charm for [livejournal.com profile] gigglemonster, for some reason it doesn't want to engage my DVD drive at all. After encoding everything it spits the (perfectly good, I tested it) blank DVD out and tells me it didn't burn. No duh, thank you very much.

(I don't know if it's me that's doing something wrong there or not, it might be worth looking into.)

Anyway.

Advice? Thoughts?
