Vividcon is in, like, a week and a half! *GLEE* Who else is going? Can I get a show of hands?

- Within the last few months, I've finished rewatches of Buffy, Angel, and Farscape. Now I'm pondering my next big pop culture move.

- [personal profile] jmtorres is our roommate now. It is awesome. She brought oh so many books.

- I really, really, really want to make an album-vid of Farscape a la Luminosity's Scooby Road, but finding good, consistent albums that are also salient to the subject matter throughout is *hard*. This is especially true since I only really discovered music in the era of MP3s, so I don't keep a lot of albums in my head.

- I'll have DVDs for sale at the orphan vids table at Vividcon again. Nothing new, just a repackaging of Volumes 1 and 2 from last year as a single unit. If you have one and not the other, let me know and I'll bring a few single-volume of each as well.

- Poking at a couple different vids here and there. Finished one vid, then decided it wasn't awesome enough, so I unfinished it.

- Went to see Puppet Up! on Friday. Puppet improv from the Jim Henson Company. Dirty, dirty dirty puppet improv. It was hilarious.

- Running Fiasco again at the con. Interest posts at Dreamwidth and Livejournal. There's still plenty of room on both Thursday and Sunday nights.

That's... pretty much everything I can think of right now.

[livejournal.com profile] midnightfae and I are entering into Season 3 of Farscape as I introduce her to the awesomeness of the show. I should note that [livejournal.com profile] midnightfae does not like when shows kill off her favorite characters.

Perhaps I should warn her that the Season 3 premiere title, "Season of Death", is really an appropriate name for Season 3 as a whole.

Hm.

Through various sales and whatnot, I have managed to procure 11 of the 12 Farscape Starburst editions in the last three or four months. However, my luck is such that the one I do not have is Season 1, Collection 1. This is particularly irritating, because that set is out-of-print and goes for 50-100 dollars used on half.com and ebay.com (anybody selling it for less is lying -- believe me, I have enough "temporarily out of stock" emails from online retailers to know). One Half.com retailer actually shipped it, but the package never arrived (or was stolen off my mom's front porch). I can't even get the episodes off of Netflix.

*mutters obscenities* Is it too much to ask to get one last set?

About, oh, two months ago, I ordered all the Season 1 Farscape Starburst Editions from Amazon.com (I had ordered the other three seasons direct from ADV Films on sale). They told me it would be a few weeks, but the far end for shipping was put at July 9th and I figured it was a reasonable time to wait.

Today, July 10th, I got an email from Amazon informing me that there will be a slight delay in shipping and that my sets won't be shipping until... wait for it... December 2007.

Fine, whatever, I'll order them used. No joy. They're apparently out of print. Starburst Season 1, Volume 1 is going for $130. What in the name of whatever makes Amazon think they'll have an out-of-print Season in stock in December? Why not just tell me they can't fulfill my order?

Even then, I'd be pissed off, though, because I'd have Seasons 2 through 4 and no Season 1.

Anyway, I canceled the Amazon.com order and bought the sets through Half.com. Mind you, my last Half.com experience left me with no actual movie shipped, but I'm willing to hedge my bets here.

Tuesday night, had lunch with some friends from writer's group. Love those guys. Great quiche, great laughs, fantastic snark. You can really tell the people who love you because they're the only ones who can get away with saying such awful, true things.

Spent last night watching Discs 8 and 9 of Farscape Season 4. This really is a lackluster season. I just cannot bring myself to care as much as I did in Seasons 2 and 3. All these things are coming to a head, but it's like Kemper & co. are bored with the story they've set-up, like they've done all the fun bits and now they're content to just throw random weirdness around to keep themselves amused.

Still dying to see the rest, of course, because I want to see how everything connects to The Peacekeeper Wars, which I caught when it aired.

Tonight, [livejournal.com profile] midnightfae is back in town and I'll be continuing her classic film education because it delights me.

Kind of contemplating what to do with myself now that I don't have anything to do. I have one wicked thought but it's going to take some time to bring to fruition...

That having pizza is a lovely thing on a Thursday-that-is-my-Friday after three hours of the increasingly headscratch-y Farscape Season 4.

Some of these icons are up to four months old, but I haven't made an icon post in ages, so here goes...

Ah, there's a backlog on Farscape Season 3 Disc 2, I guess, so Netflix is sending me Season 4 discs instead (with discs in a series, if the next installment is unavailable, Netflix will skip over the entire series to the next item on your queue so you don't get parts out of order. However, it doesn't recognize separate seasons as being part of the same overall series).

How frelling useless.

I've just watched 8 straight hours of Farscape. Season 3 credits are cooler visually, less awesome in the music department. Nice to see Crais and Scorpy added, though.

In the discs I received from Netflix, it appears that the order of the eps goes 2.18, 2.22, and THEN 2.19-2.21. Is this accurate? It seems odd that the last ep wouldn't be last. I can understand the huge switcheroo in the beginning of the first season, but this is just odd.

I may have become addicted to Farscape. Yesterday, I received five discs in from Netflix - episodes 3-13 of Season 2. I watched every. single. one. I ended up going to bed at 1:30 in the morning, just because I had to find out what happened with Crichton's very painful looking predicament.

Spoilers for Farscape Season 1+2, but probably just 2. Then again, if you've seen 2 and not 1, what the frell are you on? )
