Boredom often drives me to spend too many hours perusing the video offerings of such sites as YouTube, Netflix, and occasionally, Hulu. The beauty of a site like YouTube is that I never know what I'm going to dredge up. The drawback is... I never know what I am going to dredge up. That's when Netflix seems the saner option, and so, in the wee hours, when my brain was mumbling something about being too bored to sleep, I clicked the linkything in my browser's saved bookmarks folder and went down the rabbit hole and ended up at...

Strange Frame: Love & Sax.

(A quick note - I will try not to spoil, but the concept of a spoiler is, of course, subject to interpretation. So, YMMV.)

It's animated, but not in a House of Mouse style. It's not anime, though I feel some kisses of that genre lurking in the film's genealogy. It's different and wild, and disconcerting at first, but then the story takes over and it's somehow magical and fascinating.

Strange Frame is very, very color vivid - it's a tie dye sci-fi but there's no hippies here, just gorgeous, color and music and a story about love and freedom and rich world building that I'd love to see expounded on with more about these characters. I want to know so much more - the history we're teased with, the plight of humanity, how it's changed, how life has, indeed, found a way... it was an appetizer for a meal I hope the creators share with us in the near future.

The voice acting is a who's who of geekery, with Claudia Black lending her smoky deliciousness to the main character, Parker. The vocal rogue's gallery continues with the likes of Tara Strong, Ron Glass, Juliet Landau, Alan Tudyk, Cree Summer, George Takei, Claudia Christian, Micheal Dorn, and Tim Curry.

After getting into the film, I did some research, read the Wikipedia article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strange_Frame Warning: SPOILERS abound at this link.) and was even further impressed by the ideals the creators had and employed in its creation.

Did I mention that it's Sci-Fi? It has a kind of cyberpunk in space feel that I really love. It's a lesbian love story, it's music and madness, and the price of being free - and it's crazy fun.

I think if the movie has any drawbacks for me, it's that some plot lines are introduced and followed a little too haphazardly - I can't tell if it's supposed to be open threads leading to possible sequels or just something that got lost in the editing. Still, it didn't detract from the movie as a whole.

The animation style... it won't be for everyone. Its jarring, things are weirdly out of proportion at times, but for me, I forgot about the weirdness and went into the story, needing to know what happens to Parker, to Naia her lover, to Philo and Reesa and most importantly - does the evil Dorlan Mig (voiced by Tim Curry, no less!) get what's coming to him?

I won't give away the ending, just wave my hands in a frantic motion and say, "Go, run, don't walk! See this. It's weird, it's good, it's strange, it's Strange Frame: Love & Sax!

I'll just leave this little trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW-tfaT8rVk here - I'm not so hot with the tumblr coding, but hopefully, you'll be able to click it, at least.

There is no front or back, both are equally front and back. Anyway, let's see, a rundown of construction: The picture is my art, printed as a photo. I used a poker chip for the base, then covered it with pieces of aluminum foil tape. Once that was secured, I glued the image in place using Aileen's super tacky glue, then covered it with Glossy Accents. On the reverse, I painted the foil tape with a few layers of bronze colored glittery nail polishes and then added the gears and flatback rhinestones. To achieve the dimensional look, I used a few washers that had been glued together with E-6000 - this is the glue I used on all the gears, actually. Once it was dry and cured, I covered the whole thing in more Glossy Accents. The number that's tucked a bit out of sight is a one, by the way, because that number set didn't have a thirteen.

For now, the pendant is suspended on a simple length of waxed cotton cord, though eventually, I'd like to find a chain for it. There will also likely be more pendants, since I have plenty of pictures to play with.

here is my first piece for this years Femslash Day.

Title: Tathyri Prime
Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Sam/Janet



Originally, there was to be a story to go with this piece, but the piece I wrote just... didn't seem right. So I decided I'd like it stand on it's own - after all, they could be anywhere, anywhen, enjoying a strange planet and being happy together.
shaych_03: (camping)
a couple more pieces, because i put 'em up, so i might as well share 'em.

+ Title: Belief & Betrayal
+ Authors: [livejournal.com profile] grumpybear1031 and [livejournal.com profile] shaych_03
+ Fandom: Warehouse 13
+ Pairing: H.G./Myka
+ Notes: Ladies lovin’ ladies ahead… and angst, and action, and well, just read it – we promise you a happy ending. Takes place where 2X12 Reset leaves off, possible spoilers for both seasons. Some liberties taken with certain events, as we don't have actual dates for H.G.'s bronzing etc... We are finally finished and doing a second round of edits...whooo hooo.
+ Rating: We'll play it safe and say R throughout NC-17 Chapters will be clearly marked.
+ Disclaimer: Warehouse 13 and it's characters belongs to Syfy. We're just borrowing them for a while and promise to give them back.
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] taterc for help with a quick beta.

Author's Note: Shay, I hope you can forgive me for dragging you into this mess. My obsession with H.G. Wells blinded me, and a need to correct the total mess that was “Reset” kind of made me crazy. I'm not much of a writer so your help in getting this from inside my head to down on paper is very much appreciated. I'd also like to say a big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] darandkerry for being an amazing beta. Your suggestions and punctuation help are invaluable.

Author's Note: Jen, you may have dragged me into watching Warehouse 13 kicking and screaming, but I've had more fun working on this story with you than I have in a long time. Your ideas are great; you have a natural ability to kick start my muse and keep her chugging along happily. Should I even bother to mention how good you are at calling me on BS characterizations or reinterpreting the sometimes cornball melodrama that my muse creates? Anyway, I'm glad you got me into this. I would also like to add my thanks to [livejournal.com profile] darandkerry, for her spot on beta skills. I hope we didn't kill you with all the missing commas.


If you've seen these at [livejournal.com profile] meetatgunpoint then there's nothing new here... just collecting the links to [livejournal.com profile] grumpybear1031's journal

So this one, I'm thinking, it's a nice, relaxing day for them... no artifacts, no intrusions, just each other, a warm fire, and all the time they need to be together.

Two versions because I felt like it :)

Don't really have any text to go with it this time... perhaps it speaks for itself?

Anyway... I know it's late, but hopefully y'all will enjoy it no matter what time I got round to posting it :)
