Lovely man, you will be missed.

I am deeply saddened to hear that Robin Sachs died, suddenly and unexpectedly, on February 1st. Today would have been his birthday; he would have been 62.

He was a joy to watch. In particular of course I loved his Ethan; the mischief and slither he wound around the character was absolutely perfect.

We didn't get enough of him, and there was so much more to be had. My heart goes out to all who loved him, and all who he loved.

This is the last of the many Ethan and Robin icons I once had, here; the tone may be wrong for the moment, but well, our favourite Chaos mage would probably prefer it that way.

Happy birthday, nottheterritory!

Today is my lovely Alex's birthday. He's building his birthday Lego right now. :) Happy birthday, love, and many more.

LJ is doing pop-up (over? IDK what you call them exactly) ads, now? JFC, do they not get how much people hate them? *hands*

Edit: and there I go repeating myself. *facepalm* Sorry.

Edit, part deux: Got the ad again. "Once this ad is over, you will be returned to your LiveJournal experience."

Also, the Writer's Block is sponsored by Kleenex.

Yeah, I stopped paying a long time ago, and actually, this makes me more resolved never to do so again (pay, that is). :P

Writer's Block: MAKE IT STOP!

What was the last song you couldn't get out of your head no matter how hard you tried?

This is the song that never ends... RAAAARGHHHH!

(Will post something of substance another time. My head is all over the place these days. :P)

And now for the airing of grievances...

LJ is deleting and purging inactive accounts including communities in which there have been no posts for 24 consecutive months, and journals whose owners haven't logged in for 24 consecutive months.

Though I get why they're doing this, I'm pissed off. What happens to all of the journals of people who have died, or who stopped posting one day and never came back? What happens to the stories, the art? (Oy, I'm going to have to do some serious saving, here.)

If you are in touch with someone who has been away from their journal for an extended period of time, or you're part of a community that doesn't see much action anymore and don't see a mod post in the next couple of days, please spread the word. This is all too likely to fly under the radar, as usual.

ETA: note this thread (thanks, curtana!) where an alternative is floated whereby only accounts that had one or two posts ever and have been idle for 2 years would be deleted. That's definitely preferable.

Writer's Block: Mind reader

In three words, describe what's currently running through your mind.


alternating with:

CRAP, I'M 40!

Writer's Block: Who are Sheldon and Penny?

Fanfiction: Do you love it or hate it, or are you totally indifferent? Why?

(That's Big Bang Theory, right? I don't watch TV anymore.)

I love it. It's fun!

Meme time.

Sorry I'm not posting much of substance these days (though that might be a good thing, IDK). I'm mostly on Tumblr these days, blocked as far as longer posts go, so for now, here's a meme I've seen around.

Put your songs on shuffle. Write down the first line of the first twenty songs, as a poem.

This turned out pretty dark/emo. I took an extra line for the title, and was tempted to rearrange the lines into something more narrative, but anyway...

this wayCollapse )


Colour meme

Via catsarah *snorgle*

Comment if you'd like a colour. Then list ten things that you like/love which are that colour.

Cats gave me deep red.Collapse )
