Your story can’t be that much worse than mine anyway
Did you catch the pilot episode of our brand new modern Little Women vlog adaptation, The March Family Letters?
If you did and are looking for more March Family action, we strongly suggest following the sisters’ Twitters. Why? Well that would be telling.
You guys know I generally don’t watch (and therefore, don’t promote) vlog adaptation web series just cuz I’m a lil bit burned out on them :P, but I gotta admit, I’m going to be watching this one. Just one episode so far, with the rest to come in December, but they already have their transmedia underway. It looks totally professional, the acting and writing are super natural, and personally I like the characters a lot so far (unexpected fact: I watched these Little Women movies probably a gazillion times growing up). As a bonus, it’s written by Sarah Shelson, who did those cool parodies of LBD back in the day. DOUBLE BONUS: It’s Canadian. So check it out if you like these things.
New webseries alert!
Sometimes in daily life I like to pretend I’m a time traveler from late medieval Europe and I’m just fucking amazed at my luxurious life
Let me tell you, 14th c me is REALLY impressed with modern me’s easy access to…
Not gonna lie, every time I go to the dentist I think about the state of 14th c. dentistry/medicine in general and I’m just so amazed at modern medicine.
i wish there wasn’t a stigma about doing things alone. you can’t go out to eat alone, you can’t see a movie alone, basically anything fun, you’re looked down on for doing alone and it’s so stupid you shouldn’t need other people to validate your decisions
I refuse to recognize any such stigma (if indeed there is one - I’ve never encountered this idea except from people going “gee, I wish I could do things on my own but that would feel weird”, but that is possibly because I am too busy doing things on my own to notice.)
I downright prefer to do pretty much everything mentioned alone. Travel, movies, eating out, exploring new places: give me autonomy and freedom over trying to match up schedules/likes/dislikes with another person any day.
So, a lot happened yesterday. First, a lot of people responded to a post about Pemberley Digital’s monetization strategy. Then we had a kickstarter update about the LBD DVDs. And then we had a blog post from PD about the state of PD.
I’ve said it before, but I…
Oh yeah. The only reason I’m still kind of keeping up with the show is so I can talk about the meta (or, more often, lurk on tumblr and watch other people talking about the meta.)
So, for at least 6 years I’ve been hearing the Bedlam Bards sing The Hero of Canton at renfaires.
What a great old English folk song, I thought. I never quite caught all the words, but that doesn’t matter at a pubsing - you sing anyway, and I certainly did, with gusto.
Then tonight I finally got to the Jaynestown ep of Firefly.
Old English folk song MY FOOT.
(I feel dumb but also srsly are renfaire people not the coolest? Also I can’t wait til faire season.)
In which my extensive collection of National Geographic maps finally gets put to good use.
