Things, not necessarily important

I finally set up an account at YouTube for my vids. There's not much there right now, just the first few I've put up including my Festivid for Miracles. I'm kind of nervous about it because of all the takedowns I've seen people go through, but I'm going to just do whatever other people have done if I get one and go from there. I'm trying to tag things in an unobtrusive way, too, so that I won't have too much attention to them. Boy, they look a lot better than on Viddler, that's for sure, but whoa are they dark. I still make vids with an eye toward the TV screen, so I really have to reframe that because these days, no one cares about viewing vids on a TV/DVD sitch, and that really affects how things look, I think. And I still, even after asking and getting some input, can't find a way to make decent web copies that aren't a hundred megabytes. I just seem completely unable to do it.

ETA: The fuckers at Universal are already creating a limit on one of the vids I uploaded. Can anyone point me to language I can use to dispute it? I need something I can paste into the little box that says I have a right to fair use...

Obvy after Escapade I'll have a new vid for the channel, though. I haven't even figured out how to pack yet. I want to try to pack light this time as practice for traveling to Boston/England/Wales in May, but packing light has never been my strong suit. It's too complicated!

I haven't been able to start on the story that was writing itself in my mind the other night. Haven't been able to do more than lay in a few clips for my Club Vivid vid. But at least I found a fantastic freaking song for a vid to take to Vidukon, for the series Awake. It's so perfect I could die.

I read a wonderful, wonderful story the other night. Though it's a Steve Rogers/Phil Coulson story, it's also a love letter to fandom and being a fan, and what it's like to be the object of fan adoration and to be a fan and meet the object of your affections, what it's like to be friends with them. I just...seriously, people who know me know how vanishingly rare it is for me to come over all flaily about a story, because I'm usually so stuck on the minor issues and spelling mistakes and things like that that I can never fully rec things. But this was easy for me to handwave any issues -- it's just lovely, and swoony, and you should go read it right now, I don't care if you don't want that pairing. It's got friendship with everyone as well, and it's just lovely.

The trading cards and the costume redesign are Steve's first clues, but he doesn't recognize them at the time; he's too new to the world, too angry at it, too busy fighting a war.

I had a rough weekend emotionally. One of the last things to do with my dad's estate left me really sad and shaky on Friday (honestly, why are people so shitty to someone when they know they've lost their entire family and have nothing and no one left, someone who was deferent and polite to them? What makes a person behave like that?), and then being around mean people on Saturday was just kind of the icing on the shit cake. But at least I got to spend many hours with Buffy, my previous foster dog and the happiest dog on the planet. She is doing so well! All her fur has grown back on the nakey spots she had while she was here, and she hasn't lost any of her joie de vivre. And of course she was loving being loved all night.

Keeping fingers and toes crossed for full sunshine at Escapade. I really need it.

I agree, it's astonishing how insensitive people can be to the bereaved. I was told I "should have got over it" three weeks after I'd lost someone. So sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry for people being shitty. None of that next weekend, I declare!

Keeping all things crossed for sunshine.

Some people just really enjoy being assholes :(
