Dept. of What? WHAT??

Photobucket, Part Deux

Earlier today, I checked some of my posts with pictures and such from Photobucket. The latest ones were still not-showing up (although they didn't have that odd graphic that some people's pages are afflicted with. Earlier ones, however, were still showing up. OK, I thought, perhaps this stupidity only affects recent images? 

Just now, I checked, and all the ones that had gone missing from DW/LJ were back in place. They're still here. 

However, since other folks' appear to still be missing their images, I am at a complete loss as to account for my "recovery." Nor do I know whether it should last. 

Has anyone else noticed that sort of thing happening?

Dept. of Screwing the Customer

I'd Wondered When It Would Happen

It appears that Photobucket finally got around to photobucketing me, as it has so many other people with its change in third-party image hosting. For awhile my images were still showing up, but not anymore. 

I'm looking at Google as a new resting place for my photos, if their third party sharing is easy to deal with (or, you know, a thing at all.) I have to decouple my Google account from my iPhone, so that my biz photos don't get automatically uploaded, something I apparently managed to do sometime in the past. 

Pulling everything from Photobucket and transferring things to Google (who I'm much more likely to want to pay for space) will be a pain, but I'm not paying $40 a month for the right to do what I signed up with Photobucket in the first place to do. And I haven't got enough photos there to make it a monumental pain. 

It's just an annoyance, but it does mean Photobucket will be losing me as a customer.

Natal Felicitations to [personal profile] masakochan !

It's always so much fun to know someone online that shares not one, but many of my particular affections, and [personal profile] masakochan is one of those people. She's a fellow traveler in the Whoniverse, and she knows and loves anime and manga; she shares many of my real world sympathies, and can therefore put up with my intermittent rants about the world.

She loves animals as well as anime, is determinedly making her way through life even when it gets rocky; she's really a lovely person to know, and I'm glad she's part of my online world.

I hope your birthday has been good so far, and I hope it signals a good coming year for you. And one of these days I'll rope you into a discussion about Shingeki no Kyojin's second season. You don't have to spoil me about what's coming, I just want to squee with you over the art (which has gotten even better this season), and the pacing and ... and ... well, this is a birthday wish, not a fangirl squee, so forgive me - and Happy, Happy Birthday!

Dept. of Executive Decisions

Taking the Plunge

I've decided that I'm going to start uploading Hearts & Moons to AO3, something I've avoided to date. I'll upload one chapter every 4-5 days to start (although I may do the prologue and first chapter at the same time), and I'll try to time the uploads so that the story will be finished by the time I reach Chapter 26.

I made the decision because I've now got two completed chapters, 26 and 27, in the hopper, and the chapter I believe to be the penultimate one, Chapter 28, is somewhere between one-third and one-half completed. After that, there's either one final chapter or a very hefty epilogue.

I think there are enough completed chapters that doing a relatively slow but steady stream of chapters to AO3 will keep me going on the writing front.* After all, I'm already in the "I have to take a break from my Real World work to get another couple of paragraphs written or edited on this story" stage of writing. That bite at the base of my brain (or possibly in my gut) won't lift until the chapter is finished, and once 28 is done, I'll be able to see the route to the exit door, as it were.

So, yeah, taking the plunge, with upload work starting tonight. Wish me luck.


*And if you haven't started reading the story because it's a WIP, you can at least consider starting to read it over on AO3, trusting that things will be finished by the time you reach what is currently the end. If that makes sense.)

One More Birthday

Happy birthday, yesterday, to

Happy Birthday, [personal profile] laurel !

Years ago, now, when I still went to SF conventions in Minneapolis, I met a remarkable young woman named Laurel at a Minicon music party. She was smart, funny (Hey! Bacon Dispensers!), knew more about the Internet than I ever could, loved science fiction, baseball - especially the Twins - and television, and cats, and I was very glad to have met her. 

Fast forward more than a few years, and it's been too many of those years since I last had the pleasure of her company. I know life's been less than optimal from time to time for her, but I also know that she's still the smart, funny, Internet-savvy, television knowledgeable, science-fiction and baseball-loving woman I met at that Minicon music party. 

Laurel, here's to you, and may this year be chock-full of only the very best things!

Dept. of America

I Am Silent In the Face of Heartbreak

Every year, I try to write something about this country on July 4, because I love it. 

(Oh sure, you do, 
[personal profile] kaffyr  ... how come you're not a citizen?)

But this year, after eight months of surreality - 

(What makes a country great? What makes it great again? How can it become great for the first time?)

I find that I cannot.

(Some must think that makes me a traitor. Some must think I must be spineless. Some must think it makes me a patriot. I think it makes me confused.

I still love it.

(Can't figure out why, except that it's still got a chance to be great, and isn't that almost enough?)

So I turn to music. 

This man's guitar killed fascists. 





This man was prescient in so many ways, but he was wrong about the revolution. Or maybe he'll still be right. It's apparently the counter-revolution that's being televised. 



This American Woman slays - and she frightens racists. 




And this one ... I forgive him for forgetting that there were a lot of folks here when the Mayflower arrived, because ... because, because, because, and partly because of the beauty of their two voices. Every year this one makes me weep more.

Dept. of Many, Many Birthdays

June, I Hardly Noticed You.

And that meant I failed to note a great many birthdays.

Happy Birthday, back on June 2, to
[personal profile] cassie_faith , who keeps soldiering on through tough times, and looks to music and fandom with optimism and hope. May the coming year be better than you ever dared to hope!

Happy Birthday, on June 8 to
[personal profile] acciochocolate , who is a fan, an icon maker of great taste, someone who, I suspect, adores aromas in perfumes and oils as much as I do, and whose stories (both Real Life and fannish) I always enjoy reading. I hope to see you around in the coming year - and nay that year be a good one for you.

Happy Birthday, on June 9, to
[personal profile] livii , one of the first people to tell me my fic was readable, and whose fic encouraged me to write, and write well. She also wrote beautifully about Real Life challenges and successes, and I hope to continue to see her on These Intarwebz for a long time to come.

Happy Birthday, on June 11, to
[personal profile] time_converges , who shares my love for Donna (and whose fic about The Best Temp in the Universe always seemed to have Donna's voice perfectly). Wherever you are, playing Mass Effect, enjoying Elementary, and life in general, may your birthday have been excellent, and may 2017-2018 be very good to you.

Happy Birthday, on June 12, to the long-absent (on LJ/Dreamwidth at least)
[personal profile] dark_aegis . I hope life is treating you kindly, and I hope one day to see you again in pixels.

Happy Birthday, on June 25, to
[personal profile] joking , who shared my life of the Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler and Jack Harkness, and who also understood my love of the TARDIS and Her relationship with that particular OT3. Once again, it's been some time since she's been around on the social platforms where we first interacted, but I hope your birthday was a good one, and I hope to interact with you again in the future.

And finally, Happy Birthday, again on June 25, to
[personal profile] autographedcat , whose song "Second Movement" I just read, and snorfled over, who enjoys The Doctor, and filk, and science fiction, and who I'm very glad to have met here in the virtual world. May the time between now and your next birthday be very, very good.

Dept. of Getting Back Up On The Horse

For A Start

[personal profile] lydy  is brilliant. She is a bit of a force of nature, one I would like to see more of, learn more about, and in general have more a part of my world. I still treasure a night many, many years ago, in the "secret" consuite at Minicon, when I had the benefit of her humor and intellect. 

I think I agree with her on things cultural, political, emotional and intellectual at least 80 percent of the time. The other 20 percent of the time? I suspect that we'd probably have some interesting discussions. 

She has written an essay that I believe is well worth reading and thinking about, concerning how women, the world, and "the rules" - for every single value and power of "the rules" that might exist in this universe - intersect. It is her answer, or at least an excellent precis of her answer (because her real answer is the way she approaches the world every day), to the question many men ask (in which the asking is too often more complaint about having their privilege questioned than actual question) of women: "How can I interact with you women without being a douche, if you won't tell me the rules?"

I think I agree about 95 percent with this one. And even if I didn't agree with it nearly that much, it's still an excellent starting place for conversations, or indeed for an internal dialogue, if one were inclined to think about it. Because, as I said, 
[personal profile] lydy  is brilliant, and brilliance nearly always is an excellent light by which to make one's way in this world. And, as she said to me when I asked if I could link, she wants to start conversations.

Many Happy Returns of the Day ...

... to
[personal profile] peoppenheimer , he of extraordinarily rare appearances and extraordinarily rarefied mathematical and philosophical abilities, who celebrated on May 22. May you continue to be all that you are;

... to
[personal profile] lydy , who had a birthday on May 24, and who I have not seen for far too long. I hope she's attending Wiscon, which I think would be a great follow up to London. If she's not there, I hope she's enjoying post-Londinium decompression. She's rather brilliant, independent, radical, occasionally mulish, and all of those things are eminently admirable. May the next year be fantastic for you!

... to
[personal profile] sallymn , music lover, icon maker, fic writer, and genuinely nice person. I have many of your icons, I've enjoyed many of your musical recommendations - in fact, I enjoy interacting with you in many, many ways; I hope your birthday was a great one!

One More Gone

I grew up with the Allman Brothers Band. I didn't know dick about rock and roll until I was a young adult, but I loved the sound of Duane Allman and Dickey Betts urging each other on on their guitars; I loved the non-stop double set of drummers; I loved Gregg Allman's raw-throated vocals. I didn't know their names at the time I fell in love with their music, but I went out and found their albums, and then I learned their names.

I find it weird that just a few nights ago I got the unstoppable urge to listen to "Layla," in which Duane and Eric Clapton and the rest of the band tear the world apart for love. And tonight, I'm mourning the little brother who idolized big brother Duane.

Here are possibly my two favorite Allman Brothers' Band songs. Midnight Rider, because of the controlled desperation of the lyrics, which Gregg's voice carried; Whipping Post because it made me feel every lash of the whip, and filled my head with its thunderous bass line and Gregg's howl. (The live version at the Fillmore is amazing - go watch it here - but I include the album version here because that's the one that hit me in the gut first.)

RIP, Gregg Allman; you finally made it to angel.

Dept. of Union Stuff

Day Two of Vacation: A Request

After my brief, but heartfelt, snarl about one of the awful people with whom I'm forced to negotiate, I realized I haven't told anyone about the miserable news we folks at my immediate company heard concerning Chicago news. Michael Ferro, who bought the Chicago Sun-Times several years ago, drove it even further into the ground than Conrad Black had left it; who gave the Sun-Times holding company the ridiculous name Wrapports;who sold all the Sun-Times suburban publications to the Chicago Tribune Publishing Company, thereby freeing the suburban properties - we thought - from his bizarre, self-aggrandizing, and supremely anti-journalistic ass;  who then jumped ship so that he could become majority shareholder at Chicago Tribune Publishing, ensuring that we couldn't be free of the bastard; who proceeded to rename the Tribune after the sound a flatulent goose makes when trod upon (and even the Trib didn't deserve "tronc") - has now turned around and plans to buy the Chicago Sun-Times, which he ensured would be barely breathing by the time he did so.

We believe he plans to kill the Sun-Times, somewhere between 18 and 24 months from the time he gets his claws on it. He's a mean, vicious creature, and we believe that -  not content with having used the Sun-Times as the platform from which he could reach his real goal, the Trib and it's network (the L.A. Times, Hartford Courant and others) not content with having sucked the lifeblood out of the Sun-Times in his quest - he actually wants to kill it, so that Chicago become a one-paper town, like too many major markets in the United States. As I said; mean and vicious.

Thus far the Department of Justice's antitrust division appears to be paving the way for Ferro to do this; here are a couple of stories about the proposed sale. You be the judge when it comes to how carefully the antitrust boys are looking at this.

The NewsGuild is trying to stop this, or at least slow it down so that other potential buyers could be found to save the Sun-Times. Part of our strategy is this petition.
Consider signing it; no matter where you live, the continuing health of news outlets should be a concern. If you decide to sign, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
