[ profile] indiefic_scc is organizing a fun little ficathon to mark judgment day. I've never done one of these, but the general idea is that you pick a character (or pairing) and a prompt for a story you want written for you and in exchange, you get assigned to write a story for someone else. Indie will pass out story assignments on March 2 and the stories will be due on April 21, 2011 (judgment day).

Sounds fun, right? Go check it out and sign up.

Being the slacker that I am, I have yet to pimp the new podcasts that schmacky kicked off several weeks ago. Typically, these are casual fan discussions on a particular TSCC topic, but the latest one is an interview with writer Zack Stenz. You should check it out:

After much prodding by [ profile] cj2017, I started watching Alias this weekend. It's so awesome. How did I miss out on this show when it originally aired? Oh yeah... 9/11. We watched nothing but news for like two months after 9/11 and mostly news for several months after that. Regular TV just felt weird so we only tuned in to a few returning favorites that season.

Marathoning rules, though, so I'm not exactly sad I missed out on weekly viewings back then. This show would've driven me nuts with the nonstop cliffhangers! In three days' time, the man and I have watched 21 episodes. Aside from a couple of really dull eps kicking off the last act, it's been a rockin' good time. Sydney Bristow definitely gets a slot on my awesome TV chicks list, along side Olivia Dunham, Aeryn Sun, Veronica Mars, and Sarah Walker. What's this? No Sarah Connor on the list?! No, she's on THE SARAH FUCKING CONNOR list (and she's the only one on it).

If you've never seen Alias, take [ profile] cj2017's advice like I did and watch it. But don't read the rest of this post. )

If you follow [ profile] cj2017's TSCC fic (and really, you'd be an Ellison not to), then today is the day you've been waiting for... NEW FIC POSTED! It totally rocks.
roxybisquaint: (sarah hardcore)
Just in case you're oblivious to [ profile] cj2017's new fic, Breaking Point (part 1), I highly recommend it. As she describes it, the story involves the whole team with a definite Sarah/Derek bias. It follows from her previous fic (she's got a link to it), but stands on its own just fine if you're coming in fresh. Go and enjoy.

ETA: Why read just one fic when you can read two? [ profile] sabaceanbabe has a group of five awesome mini-fics (Scars You See, Scars You Don’t) about the physical and emotional scars that mark the characters of TSCC.

Are you guys familiar with The 3 Dots podcasts? They do commentary and news and also discussion podcasts. There was a very cool commentary recently with Ash Miller, about TITD2. I highly recommend it. There's also a new discussion podcast about Some Must Watch, While Some Must Sleep that I joined in on, along with [ profile] schmacky0, [ profile] gothamite66, [ profile] valhallalilly and Willwood. It's about 50 minutes long and I think it's kind of fun (especially when we get into talking about the emergency c-section). But I'll warn you that I talk a lot.

There will be more of these discussion podcasts so if anyone wants to join in, just email All you need to be able to participate is Skype.

Did everyone go see Star Trek this weekend? I'm not a big Star Trek fan, never have been. But since I grew up watching reruns of the original series, I was kind of excited about the new movie. So tonight we went to see it and I loved it. Really loved it. It's not often that a movie is better than I expect, but Star Trek was.

I thought Kirk was a little over-the-top annoying, and early on I was worried this was going to be Top Gun in space. But they moved past that set-up pretty well. Spock was all kinds of awesome. And little Chekov was way adorable (he's in fact making me actually want to see T4 — maybe that guy as Kyle will counteract my anticipated dislike of Christian Bale as John Connor).

The theater was packed and everyone seemed to have a great time. We had three generations of people in our group and we all had a blast. Oh and at the end, the theater erupted into applause. Cool. I don't remember the last time that happened at a movie. So go see it if you haven't all ready. Star Trek is a rockin' good time.

Has anyone else been watching The Unusuals? I really like it a lot. It's fun, it's full of quirky characters and the cast is awesome. The fourth episode just aired tonight, so if you've been missing out, you can catch up at I loved the pilot, thought the 2nd episode was just okay, but the 3rd and 4th episodes have been great. A show that can make me actually like Adam Goldberg must be doing something right.

I've also been watching that new show Southland which is way better than I expected. It's heavy drama, but exceedingly well done. The characters don't quite play as stereotypical as they initially seem. Bonus: it has Ben McKenzie.

[ profile] life_on_queen called for short fic prompts and I threw one at her: John accidentally shoots his mother.

The result is total awesomeness.

Just a list of films you might not have seen that I happen to have a lot of affection for.

Amelie - If you don't love this movie then I'm not sure we can be friends anymore.

Barfly - You're just going to have to take my word for it. It's good and Mickey Rourke gives the performance of a lifetime. You'll hate him and you'll love him and you'll quote his lines in his voice.

Defending Your Life - I so want to believe this is how it is. And obviously none of you have seen it or someone would have realized by now that I sort of stole the name of my LJ from it. You little brains wouldn't understand anyway.

Dick - If you ever saw All the President's Men, you really do need to see this. It's cute and clever and a lot of fun.

Doc Hollywood - Yes, that Michael J. Fox movie. Don't prejudge; it's sweet. It makes me want to live in a town like Grady and go to the squash festival. Also surprisingly quotable.

Fearless - It'll stay with you. I think this film is the reason I don't fear death in my plane crash dreams (yeah I've been having those a long time).

Joe Versus the Volcano - I strongly disagree with the masses and critics. It's wonderful and it still gets quoted in my house. Even if you don't agree, you'll no doubt enjoy Joe's office misery at the beginning.

LA Story - When Steve Martin was still made of awesome. There are so many good moments packed in that you won't care how silly the story actually is.

Prelude to a Kiss - Warm and fuzzy but probably not for everyone. I love it.

Roxanne - Some of the worst acting you'll ever see, but it's sweet and fun and Steve Martin is incredibly lovable.

This is My Life - None of the stand-up is actually funny, but that's not what it's about. It's a mother and daughters journey full of quirky goodness.

United 93 - Fucking powerful. I saw it in the theater and once on DVD and it hit me just as hard the second time. It's not sappy, it's not political and it was made with the involvement of all the families. It's seriously, seriously good.

Wonder Boys - "I have an alternate version of the first chapter." Brilliant script. Brilliant cast. Full of awesome characters. So damn clever even if the title isn't.
