"How can I find him?" "Well, you could become a terrible event and happen to him."

Elaborate on your default icon.

I change my defaults all the time, but this is my technical default icon:

This basically came about because of a conversation between me and hikethekilt, which went something like this:
boss: *sends me that picture*
me: *demands icon*
boss: *makes icon*
me: *points out that this is the best icon ever, because how can you not love a wee sombrero?*

And thus history was not made.

That they go back to being nonexistent. Stop existing, fictional children of mine! I can't deal with you!

text - i'm a zombie now

in which i ramble about comics (because Tumblr can't have all the fun)

Comics have been eating my brain lately! Anyone else into Marvel? I was a Marvel girl in high school (not to be confused with Marvel Girl) and my brother was a DC boy. 15 years later, our battle lines are still drawn. He thinks Superman and Aquaman are awesome, and I am convinced that Wolverine would rip them to shreds in about five minutes while Deadpool mocks their remains.

I'm 3/4 of the way through Cable and Deadpool right now, and re-reading all the Wolverine books (since it's been a good 15 years since I read any Wolverine, sadly). After that, I think I'll either peek at the House of M storyline, or go back and re-read Uncanny X-Men. That series is the one that got me hooked on comics in the first place. I stopped in a comic book store to see if they had any Hello Kitty notepaper (I still love HK notepaper, be quiet) and the covers of X-Men and Uncanny X-Men caught my eye. I'm pretty sure it was love at first sight.

Despite that, I want to be excited about the DCnU. I really do, but...I've got several of the new #1 issues and I feel so meh every time I go to read them. I can't summon up any enthusiasm, and it's a shame, because reboots usually interest me (if only a little; after all, there are SO MANY OF THEM). Maybe when I (finally) get a tablet, that'll help. About half of my reason for wanting a tablet now is so I can read comics. Reading them on my phone is just not working for me, and reading them on the laptop is okay, but I can't carry them from room to room with ease. It's just a matter of picking out which tablet, really. I'm leaning toward the Amazon Kindle Tablet coming out in a month or so, but I'm not sure if I should go for something bigger than a 7-inch screen. I might have to do some maths to sort this out. And by "do some maths", I mean "sit at my desk with a ruler and a puzzled face".

Suits fandom/fic is my new happy place/favorite tag on Tumblr. Everything is made of beautiful Gabriel Macht close-ups. That is all.

Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS

Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS
For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.

Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.

G+ stuff

Google+ invites are still closed at the moment, but I've tried a workaround. Everyone who requested an invite, check to see if you've received an email from me about it. Clicking on the link should let you sign up for G+! This MAY OR MAY NOT WORK. It worked for the husband, so fingers crossed? I've been told that if the link doesn't work, trying it again a few times might do the trick.

You guys, this thing kicks the shit out of Facebook. Seriously, it is AWESOME and you will not regret joining it for a second. I LOVE IT.

Also, if you want an invite, leave your email address here! Comments screened.

avengers - tony&steve


I have Google+! Leave your email address in the (screened) comments and I'll send an invite your way. Try to pay it forward--invites seem to be unlimited!

PS, I'm not actually enraged; I meant to select 'excited' and it all went wrong. Then I decided I like that mood .gif too much to change it. She's so pretty when she's angry!

eta: Google+ has shut down invites for tonight. When they come back on, I'll be sure to send out more to anyone who needs one!

Help Identify Inactive Fandom Delicious Accounts!

Originally posted by murklins at Help Identify Inactive Fandom Delicious Accounts!
Okay, fandom! Sometime in July, maybe even on July 1st, control of Delicious will transfer to AVOS. Any Delicious account that has not explicitly opted in to the transfer will be lost forever. I would like to generate a list of fannish accounts that have not opted in and back up all their PUBLIC bookmarks. To do this, I need a lot of help, in not a lot of time. That's where you come in. Things you can do to assist in this endeavor:

  1. Link this post around!
  2. Comment to this post with any fannish Delicious accounts that you know of. Don't worry about duplicating someone else's suggestions, or listing accounts that have maybe already opted in. We're aiming for maximum coverage in this step. I'll be filtering the lists programmatically. To that end, please keep your lists simple and consistent, with each account name on its own line and no extra text.
  3. Feeling ambitious? Volunteer to help do the actual backing up by emailing me at my gmail account, verymurklins. You need to have Java installed on your computer and be willing to use a command line interface to run a script. More detailed instructions will be provided, of course, but since we're short on time, I won't be able to walk people through installing Java, so volunteers will have to get that part done on their own. Note: If your computer runs Mac OS X, it already has Java.

And what will I do with all the archived accounts? I don't exactly know yet. For now, I just want to be sure that someone, somewhere, has a copy of all this fannish data. Once the transfer to AVOS goes through, we'll get a feel for the new landscape of Delicious and weigh the options.

capslock of demanding joy, this way

Drive-by rec: The Proper Time by abbichicken. XMFC, Charles/Erik (of course, because I haven't even gotten around to reading other pairings in that fandom yet). R, but manages to be completely filthy in a purely mental/emotional way. OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS, IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO LOVE A FIC MORE THAN I LOVE THIS ONE. I am just...guh. The amount of A+ fic this movie has produced is THE BEST THING ABOUT MY SUMMER VACATION.

spoilers!Collapse ) I have claimed this fic as my fandom birthday present. Evidently I can do that sort of thing because I say I can.
