Yes, it is Merlin Day (hip, hip, Hooray!) But I have weddings and whatnot and who knows when I will be able to watch.

But I have another reason to be excited! After searching all of my backups and computers for all the vids I have ever made, I couldn't seem to find one of my own personal favorites, and the only completely episodic vid I ever made. (Not to mention the only one I ever made with Pinnacle...as it was one of the last vids I ever found time for). It was a Daniel "Absolute Power" vid done to Limp Bizkit's Behind Blue Eyes. What made it fun was that my friend [livejournal.com profile] scarym1 and I were doing an episodic vid challenge for that episode and chose the same song without even knowing it till we were both done, though hers was The Who's version. (Great minds!) How fun was that!?!
 [livejournal.com profile] scarym1 , do you still have your? I would like to see it again!!

Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] ruralstar talking about her new site gave me an idea and I am seven kinds of stupid as I didn't realize my old site was actually still up and running. Since I wasn't paying anymore, I just assumed what I had uploaded to it was long gone. 

IT WASN"T!!!!!!!!!!!

So, now, I have a modest 10MB copy of this vid but that is way better than no copy at all!!! (Because back in the day you only had so much space...is that even the case, anymore, or has the advent of hi-def and better vid editing programs made this a non-issue?) All I know is that the Merlin episodes I acquire through alternate means are of way better quality than the Stargate episodes I once acquired through alternate means for the sake of vid making.

And the site even still has the sig [livejournal.com profile] merlindra made for me.

Ah, Memories!

So I was playing some songs on shuffle the other day and I happened upon this song.

I remember really liking the song but I had forgotten about it. I'm pretty sure the first time I heard it was in a Stargate vid and, now, I really want to find that vid again. Any Stargate fans out there remember this? It was either a Daniel vid,  a Jack and Daniel vid, or a team vid. (Yeah, I know that really narrows it down, right? LOL!)

[livejournal.com profile] scarym1 and [livejournal.com profile] ruralstar, I think I am kind of counting on you but, hey, if there is anyone out there who knows which vid I am talking about, please chime in.

I would like to see it again. (So much so that it's sort of bugging me.)

 So, yeah, I read alot of fanfic and when I am reading fanfic, I invariably encounter crossover fic. If it is done right, I usually love it because I really like to see how the author brings two different universes together. It is even better if I am a total fangirl for each of the "universes" because I really love seeing how beloved characters react to one another. I know it isn't everyone's cup of tea *cough* [livejournal.com profile] scarym1 *cough*

Now, I've read all sorts of Stargate crossover fic and I've read all sorts of Merlin crossover fic but one thing I rarely encounter is Stargate/Merlin crossover fic. I think I have only read one and that involved SG-1 waking up a young Merlin in stasis instead of an old Merlin in stasis. (You know, during The Quest (parts one and two) where SG-1 and Adria are racing against each other to find Merlin's anti-Ori weapon, the Sangraal). Needless to say, that crossover was very short because we all know what happens once they awaken Merlin from Stasis. (Well Stargate fans do, anyway).

So, yeah, not a great deal of Gate/Merlin crossover going on. However, today, I happened upon a really cool crossover vid! I haven't been watching a great many Merlin vids partly because I am jealous that I no longer have the time to really start that hobby up again and partly because I probably spend too much time reading fanfic when i could (should!) be doing other things and I certainly don't need yet another time suck.
Since this is a rare crossover vid and I think the editing was amazing and so cleverly done, I feel that I must share. Plus, it's got all my beloved characters in one place! (I also think it could really make for a wonderful fanfic, just sayin')

 Wow! Has it really been almost a month since I last posted? I suppose that my journal has been filled with enough whinging over the past few years to account for a lifetime. I just decided to cut back on it, is all.
  • So, yeah, I am still searching for a job. Unfortunately, the two informal offers I had prior to graduation sort of fell through due to circumstances unrelated to me and beyond my control. It happens. I was bummed. I'm getting over it. I just never anticipated that finding a position would be difficult, probably because finding a job as a nurse has been EASY. Employers want you. Like yesterday. But even though there is an expected shortfall of providers in primary care, it doesn't really seem to be the case here at this time. Thus, employers have the luxury of seeking experienced applicants.  Of course, another reason for the difficulty is I have to limit my search to a particular area to fulfill the terms of a scholarship.
  • But I do have an interview next week. We'll see how it goes, though I refuse to get excited again.

  • With the exception of Doctor Who, BBT, Farscape Friday, and my Merlin DVDs, I have been experiencing a prolonged bout of TV apathy. I hate it when that happens. I have yet to watch a single episode of SGU since the hiatus and now I discover my DVR default setting of only keeping 5 episodes unless you specify how many to keep saved. So, the episodes have been automatically deleting once reaching 5. Ack! I remedied that but now I wonder if some of the other shows that show 5 episodes to watch (Chuck, Fringe, and Bones) have also been deleting episodes. Oops. I'm not going to be a happy person when the TV apathy subsides and I've missed loads. I am sure I'll catch SGU again in repeats but I'm not so sure about the others.

  • Some thoughts: Doctor Who is made up of awesome. What more can I say? I cannot wait to see how it all plays out and, oh yeah, I LOVE RORY! Discussion of it has started creeping in to the Farscape Friday chat. BBT: I don't think I have ever laughed so hard as I did at Raj in the coffee shop attempting to chat up a woman after taking the medication for his social anxiety. It ranks right up there with Sheldon's drunken speech! Farscape: We are up to "Nerve" and "The Hidden Memory". (WIN!!) Scorpy!!  Crichton in leather pants has finally made an appearance. I love John and Aeryn so much my heart hurts. Even though we are almost to the end of season one, anyone wanting to join in the discussion is welcome at any time. Merlin: Help me!! I am overcome daily by the pictures coming out of filming. The boyz love and the spoilery has taken over my brain!  I was all kinds of excited to learn of this series 4 guest star.

  • My laugh to tears moment of this day was brought to me (and now to you) by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] lolafeist  "honey badger don't care" I should take few lessons!


SGU Love!

 I'm behind on the shows and I have yet to catch up with Fringe but I just wanna say how great SGU has been thus far.

Be warned...I am hormonal, I have a headache, and cliches abound!

But, I am sick to the teeth of Doomseekers and Naysayers. To whom do I refer, you ask? Well, I refer to those fandom people who are so quick to rant and rave about season nine long before we even get into season nine. Heck, the second half of season eight has yet to air! They are bringing me down!

With the news that Ben Browder is joining the cast of sg-1 and the news that Claudia Black is going to be back for a five episode arc, I have already encountered cries of gloom and doom. It's going to be "Farscape sg-1". Next they are going to "replace Thor with Rygel"(somebody or other). Blah, blather, blah. Oh for the love of pearl! Here in the states, we have yet to even see Claudia Black's character and up till a few minutes ago, I didn't have a clue where they were going with the Ben Browder character. I have never watched Farscape although I hear that the actors are pretty dang good and I was rather excited to hear the news. So, here we have characters we haven't met yet and stories that have yet to be written and *STILL* people find something to complain about. Somebody call a Waaaaaa-mbulance!

It's Absurd with a capital "A" Can we at least wait and see? Is that too much to ask???

I remember, long years ago, way back in season 5 when "gasp" MS decided to leave the show. I was totally floored and to say I was disappointed is an understatement. People said then,it is the end of the world. Armageddon has arrived. Blah, blather, blah. But, it wasn't! Yes, I sorely missed my beloved Daniel Jackson (sigh) and awaited each episode in which he was to guest star like a kid on Christmas Eve. Does that mean that all of the other stories were utter drivel? Had the show gone down the tubes? Jumped the shark?

Well, no...or we wouldn't be where we are today with SEASON NINE looming near.

The next foray into doomsville came with RDA's reduced scheduling. Well, that's it. We may as well throw in the towel, shut 'er down, the fat lady is singing. After all, none of the other characters are remotely interesting enough to be able to hold our interest. Blah, blather, blah.

Do what? You mean to tell me that you have watched a show for seven seasons and you aren't the teensy weensiest bit invested in any of the other players? Not a single one of them!? How can this be? Heck, poor ole Jonas was only here for one season and there were many, myself included, that was sad to see him go. Yes, I miss seeing Jack and yes, there was quite a bit of grasping at straws in the beginning trying to "explain" his absence but, with his promotion, I think it is now being handled quite well.

Let's face it, if you are only in it for one story arc or only in it for one particular character, then you are bound to be disappointed with the changes. If, in your perspective, the show is crap and has been crap for quite some time, the horse is dead...stop beating it! I was lucky. I got to learn way back in season six that this wasn't necessarily the case where I was concerned and, since then, I have felt free to sit back and enjoy the ride.

I just wish the Pessimism Police would stop trying to pull me over!
