OOC Rides Again!

((It's been a few days, I was pulling in a big Doctor Who torrent and my torrenting client and Paint Shop are both big memory hogs, so it had to be one or the other. For that, though, I've now got another season of Doctor Who, which is pretty darn good, and I've learned another new trick for my future endeavors. That said, I give you:

OOC Again

((Here we are again. I'm rather pleased with this one, it came out faster and more easily than the last. Then again, I learned quite a few new-to-me tools in PSP while working on Lucca, but didn't really learn anything working on this one. Maybe that's an indictment of me, maybe it's just that I didn't really need to stretch for this one. Anyway, on to the card.))

OOC? Maybe

Well, I've got the Nadesico torrents up and seeding. Click here for the full season in all its twelve-gig, twenty-six episode glory, or here to get just the first episode and find out if you even want to see the rest (psst! You will). The sound is encoded using an AC3 audio codec, so if you play the files and don't hear anything, do a Google search for "AC3 codec" and download/install one that seems reputable. Then make sure your speakers are on.

"Fandom Guessing Game" meme

((I ran across an interesting meme recently. Give it a shot and challenge your friends to see how well they know their fandoms--and your preferences.

1. Post a list of up to 20 books/movies/anime/TV shows/video games/etc. that you've had an obsessive fannish love of some time in your life are a fan of (OPTION: Favorite male AND female character for some of these)
2. Have your friends list guess your favourite character from each item.
3. Post in your own journal.

So here's my list:
1. Legend of Zelda games (Both sexes.)
2. Mario games (Both sexes.)
3. DC on TV (Both sexes, hero and villain, four in this one.)
4. Final Fantasy 6 (Both sexes.)
5. The works of Miyazaki (Both sexes.)
6. Marvel's merry mutants (Both sexes, hero and villain.)
7. Valdemar books (Both sexes.)
8. Anita Blake books (Just one, and it's a guy.)
9. Disney's Gargoyles (Both sexes.)
10. Harry Potter books/movies (Both sexes.)
11. Transformers: Beast Wars (Both sexes--don't look at me like that, they have sexes... sort of.)
12. Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman" (Both sexes.)
13. Star Wars--all movies, games, books, etc. are fair game. (Both sexes.)
14. Neon Genesis Evangelion (Both sexes.)
15. Trigun (Both sexes.)
16. Escaflowne (Both sexes.)
17. Ruroni Kenshin (Both sexes.)
18. Lord of the Rings trilogy (Just males since, sadly, only three women even get worthwhile mention.)
I think that's enough, don't you?

Here's the kicker. I'm trying to get my writing mojo going again, so when all the characters are guessed (or I'm just tired of waiting), I'll post an entry crediting the winners and explaining why those characters hold a special place for me. It's not necessarily part of the meme, but I'm game if you are.))

Rosie started a meme, I thought I'd join in.

Here's the deal: you write down and share your reasons for being friends with people. It can include specific friendships and friends, but make sure to talk at least some about general reasons. What makes someone a person you want to be friends with? What makes you not want to be friends with a person? Do you make friends quickly and easily, or does it take time?

At the end of this, or the beginning (either works) you post the directions and with any luck, your friends reciprocate. Tag them, don't, it's all good.

My answer: I tend to be friends with people who have at least some of the same interests, as they're usually the ones who get my jokes and aren't shunning me. Okay, the not-shunning is the big one. I'll admit I'm a little snarky, but I don't much like people who are needlessly cruel.

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one and/or a lot of reason[s] why I like/love/adore you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love.

*Ted was in Rosie's kitchen, all the ingredients for the tortiere he had said he would make Raven arranged on the counter before him. He, however, was studying the recipe with furrowed brow.* ...what's that supposed to mean...?
