Amused and Embarrassed

Putting this behind the cut... Well aren't I quite embarrassed. I went to a get together yesterday with my brother and met a really nice looking guy that I liked. Problem: said guy was gay and happily partnered to an equally nice looking guy. Took me a full five minutes of talking to him to suspect. I usually pick up on these things much faster but sadly not this time. He was rather nice about the whole thing (and not a little amused) when I finally asked him and he said that yes he was gay. His partner thought it...

Reading Con Reports

Been enjoying reading the various Burbank Con 2005 reports across the web. Seems like a good time was had by those who went with a few glitches, hitches, and hiccups along the way. If those auction items were really going for what everyone is posting all I can say is damn! That's frelling crazy. But no doubt worth it to devoted Scapers. The cast sounds like they were their usual effervescent selves. Amusing bits: "John's Dress", "drive by signings", DRD races, well you get the idea. Off to read more reports. Side note: Probably won't be posting again until weekend...

Skiffy ramblings

Am I the only one who finds it odd that SFC plans to show the lame-assed Rave to The Grave zombie flick on Turkey-day? The Triangle looks like it might be interesting to watch. I can't decide. Some of it looks lame but it also has some actors and actresses in it that I've liked in other roles. The SGA preview seemed well...lacking. Don't get me wrong. JF's Kirk comment was amusing but the rest of the sneak peak was like--yawn. Maybe that's just my perception given the intensity of the BSG cliff hanger compared to how SG-1 and SGA...

Claudia Black and SG-1

Possible Spoilers for S10 behind the cut. It looks like CB may be joining the cast of SG-1 as full time cast member in season 10 if the word floating around the net is true. If true: sweet! CB is awesome as Vala and such a fun and different character than her role as Farscape's Aeryn Sun. I'm sure there are some that are going to start whining that SG-1 has turned into Fargate but those are just the idiots who can't get it through their heads that it's the Farscape actors who joined the show, not the Farscape characters....

BSG fandom

Sometimes, I wonder about elements of the BSG fandom. What has brought this thought on? Just an odd little message exchange with one of the members at GA over a fic I wrote and drabble I've typed up for a challenge. What made the exchange odd was they asked where I had heard about the challenge and did I know if anyone was submittting anything to it. So I told the person where I had run across the challenge and that I didn't know if the people who were pimping it were submitting stories or not. I then get this...

BSG Musings/Rantings

Chef Tyrol strikes again! 🙂 Sorry, but when I see chief spelled wrong with regards to Tyrol in BSG fic all think of is Chef Tyrol as some Emeril type cook clone. Saw this misspelling on another FF.net story. (You're not really surprised, right?) I shouldn't harp on misspelling chief as it is such an easy word, but it just annoys me for some reason. Besides typos are pretty common but what's worse in this case is that the author spells chief correctly in the fic, the misspelling is in the summary. I must admit I like hackaddict's new fic...

Sebacea.com Update

Well I've got the basic site re-established for the Civilian Services and Forums section, but haven't finished restoring the database with the backup of all the articles and what not. Hopefully will get that working properly by tomorrow. Actually repairing the hacking has not been as bad as I expected it might be. It's actually going fairly quickly. I suppose the only annoying thing about it all is it's taking away from time I intended to spend making some lj icons for myself. I'll also need to look into checking the security permissions forthe directory and code to make sure...

Admin Note for Sebacea.com

Just letting any scaper fans out there who try to visit www.sebacea.com know that the Civilian Services and Peacekeeper Forum section were hacked, though rather nicley I might add in the Civilian Service section. At least they used some decent effects and music there. 🙂 The forum was just spammed with pr0n. Don't know when I'll get around to fixing them. Soon I hope, but things are a bit busy right now. I should be ticked, but somehow I find this really amusing.

Fanfic writing

It's strange but I've come to realize while writing a BSG fic today that I have no affinity for writing one of the show's characters: Billy Keikeya (ack! must look up proper spelling) I mean I have a complete and total lack of feeling for the Billy character, so much so it's kind of scary. Usually I can at least drag out something from myself and write a character passably well, but this is worse than pulling teeth. Why, Billy? Why? Is it the lack of screen time, back story, what? Maybe I just don't get the character. Maybe it's the...
