I saw Antitrust on an airplane in the summer of 2001. I didn't leave with a high opinion of it; it seemed campy fun.

I found a used DVD at a local thrift shop last weekend, so last night I watched it with my spouse.

It actually holds up better than I predicted on a technobabble level! We freeze-framed a lot and marvelled at how reasonable (mostly) all the command-line stuff was. And as mainstream fiction movies go, I think there still hasn't been a movie that takes the conflict between proprietary and open source software more seriously than Antitrust (I'd welcome corrections on this point).

details, including spoilers )

At some point in the future I will watch the special features and listen to the commentary. (One of the special features is a music video for the Everclear song that plays at the end of the movie. The music video includes clips from the movie. It's like Everclear made a vid!) I imagine I'll have more thoughts then.

Cheerful things!

So! I have been feeling a bit down recently for reasons I'm not going to go into in this post (I have realised that doing so makes me reluctant to read the comments, rather defeating the purpose) and would like some happy, positive human interaction.

So! If the mood strikes you, please comment with happy links, books/movies etc you've enjoyed recently, random cheerful comments about what you've been up to etc. No sympathy comments, I am not in the mood right now.

And to return the favour, here is my swancon costume as well as a mask I made. Also, here is some cute happy fixit art for Rogue One.

Also, while I'm here: hello to everyone who's been coming over to dreamwidth from livejournal!

When the first pokemon movie came out there was this song at the end i really liked called Don't Say You Love Me.

Like....i think of it every now and then wondering why that song was included because it straight up doesn't match the theme of the movie.

No seriously. When my mom bought the movie (VHS tape) it came with a cassette of the soundtrack and that song was on one side of it. 

And now that I'm looking at the music video again I'm still ????


Blargh kind of day

I am a bit under the weather today. Nothing serious, just that sort of achy, cranky, icky kind of thing you get when you have't *quite* caught a cold, but you might? Yeah. Doesn't help that it suddenly dropped from 80 to 48 overnight. (Fuck you, climate change!) Although, since my AC is acting up, this is maybe an OK thing, since they can't get here to look at it til Friday. At least I won't bake in the meantime. (Bad things happen when I try to sleep and get too hot... LOL)

Anyway, not a lot of posting happening for a bit, I think. Much sleeping, though....

I hope everyone else is doing swimmingly!

[community profile] mag7bingo is - unsurprisingly - a fanworks bingo community for the TV series The Magnificent Seven.
Bingo cards are 5x5 squares and prompts are either general or character specific.
It's a very low-stress community with no deadlines or word limits.

Jeep is fixed! I'm cautiously optimistic, just because that's who I am. I'll drive to work this morning and see how it goes but gosh, fingers crossed, guys. The jeep is not okay, I tried to drive to work and it started leaking all of the power steering fluid I put in it. So it's going to the car doctor on Monday. :\

Things I'm working on in the immediate

[community profile] fan_flashworks is doing an Amnesty challenge and one of the previous prompts is 'photo.' I'm working on a fanart piece for that for a fandom where photos and selfies definitely come into play. :>

The current prompt for [community profile] 100words is 'bliss' and I'm sure I can write something for that.

...it's a small list but I'm going into my final week of classes so I don't want to try to add too much here lmao.

---

DW has gotten quite a bit more activity lately but that doesn't always translate to community activity so I broke the ice and made the first post at over at [community profile] yurionicefans with my work. Related, [community profile] ffxv! I never bothered looking for a community when this game came out but this one was created about a week ago. I don't really have anything to share over there but hopefully I will soon. :) Also, [community profile] steveandbucky is also a thing (that I never searched for before) and I have, like, plenty to share there (and also here! Most of my art/fic was posted directly to tumblr and AO3, never here).

I was talking with [personal profile] imperion last night; she's made a simblr and was talking about that fandom and while I certainly don't want to create a tumblr for my sims, I'm a little interested in sharing photos/stories here. :3 Or possibly creating a new journal for it, although frankly I'm terrible at keeping up with multiple journals, haha.

I've been seeing this around and decided I'll give it a shot. No links because I'm lazy - here's my A03 profile. XD

Top Five by Hits

1. Feels Like Belonging - 117,983 (Teen Wolf, Derek/Stiles)
2. What It Takes - 39,140 (Teen Wolf, Peter/Stiles, Derek/Stiles, Peter/Stiles/Derek, ABANDONED)
3. Making Amends - 34,517 (Teen Wolf, Derek/Stiles)
4. Learning Each Other - 10,873 (Homestuck, John/Karkat)
5. A Need As Great - 10,368 (Star Trek, Spock/Bones)

....it's kind of a bummer because I'm not in Teen Wolf fandom anymore and if I were, I'd be all over Scott/Stiles. On the other hand, Feels Like Belonging is so tropey and full of things fandom used to dig (pack mom Stiles!) that I'm not surprised it's so much ahead of everything else, haha.

Top Five by Kudos

1. Feels Like Belonging - 7,059
2. Making Amends - 1,422
3. What It Takes - 830
4. Save Yourself - 448 (Teen Wolf, Derek/Stiles)
5. A Need As Great - 428

....I mean, same, really. XD This is what happens when you shipped the big fandom ship for a minute.

Top Five by Bookmarks

1. Feels Like Belonging - 1,649
2. Making Amends - 305
3. What It Takes - 221
4. Save Yourself - 99
5. What You Need - 76 (Teen Wolf, Scott/Stiles)

Yay, finally my actual Teen Wolf OTP showed up. XD

I'm disappointed more of my Star Wars and MCU stuff didn't show up, but to be fair that stuff is infinitely more popular on tumblr, while my Teen Wolf stuff was more ignored. Also, of course, no Yuri on Ice because that's mostly been fanart. I don't know. I'm pretty bitter towards Teen Wolf fandom so this just makes me want to delete all of my work for that fandom haha even though of course I'm not going to do that.

What this really means is that I've just got to write more stuff. XD
