It was fun! I mostly didn't feel like socially awkward penguin out of game! It was frickin' cold! It snowed a bunch - just flurries, but pretty intense ones at times. Now I am totally wrecked and will sleep forever @_@

"You see how much they want to be in each other's arms?"

His words curl around her like a caress and she shivers in spite of the heat. She doesn't need to look at the screen to see what he sees, not when she can see the reflection of it on his face. He sees a love that still shines as bright as the day it was filmed, and she feels an echo of it in the tremble of her fingers, in the catch of her breath, in the erratic beat of her heart.

Javier and Katey's first kiss.

Fantastic video takedown of why the Marvel movies have terrible scoring and, more generally, the problem of temp tracks in film scoring [Youtube]. Particularly scathing was the analysis of one scene where the music was basically compared to room tone. Ouch! But I cannot argue the point.

Also, film composers ALL hate temp tracks, haha, but that's not news to anyone at this point!

(I can't figure out how to embed this, sorry! The Youtube "share" thing confuses me.)

(Thanks to Seth Dickinson.)

Rest In Peace, Chris Wiggins

Chris Wiggins has passed away at the age of 87, following a struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. May he rest in peace. He played Jack Marshak on Friday The 13th: The Series. I never caught very many episodes in reruns on Syfy, although I did like his character from what I saw; I recently purchased season 1 from a library book sale. I’ll finally watch the first few episodes of that this afternoon.

A quick check of IMDB tells me he played Dr. Hardy in Murder By Decree (1979), and apparently was the Great Wishing Star in Care Bears II: A New Generation (1986)...in addition to a large amount of other voicework. I’ll eventually get around to a rewatch of Murder By Decree.

I can't believe I never posted this here: Midwest Historic Costume Conference survey! Julie and I are seeking out some feedback for a sort of eastern CoCo we'd like to hold. She chaired/organized the recent Ohio Military Regimental Ball and I've been in charge of the events at work for the past year (we get 60-90 reenactors at the Civil War Weekend and 300-450 spectators)* so I think we're equipped to handle it.

Things have changed a bit since creating the survey - we've pretty much decided to go with Glidden House near Cleveland, and since they're totally booked May through October, it's going to be either March or November for 2018, but we can get in and book early for eg June in 2019 if that's better for people. We've done a lot of brainstorming for meal/party themes and are so psyched about all of it. Here's the FB page, right now pretty derelict but it's early days.

Edit: Also, a question for friends who do events like CoCo - as far as you know, do a lot of single-era people attend? People who are attached to reenactment units? Or is it mostly those who, like us, do costuming on their own or with a group of pals?

* Speaking of which, we are really starting to hurt. Being in Basically Canada, far from the center of CW reenacting, we draw from a small corps of reenactors who live around here or have social ties to the local units to bring them hundreds of miles. This year, we've had two deaths and an Alzheimer's institutionalization. The group that used to be our "hosts" has fallen apart, pretty much. I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO.

Music, feels, and works

I've rediscovered Delain and their new album, Moonbathers, is very pretty. A bit melancholy and slowish, but beautiful. I especially like "Suckerpunch". I've also grown to appreciate The Human Contradiction better – "Tell Me Mechanist", "Don't Let Go", etc.

It's a bit too bright outside for Rammstein's "Sonne", which is prime winter solstice music.

Last week, I was feeling very much under the weather, but then I Did Things With Visible Impact (and acquired a crush that might even be reciprocated) and I'm feeling much better. If all else fails, I just have to think about the vacuum chamber at work. It's amazing.

I've also discovered the Wikiquote page for Wolfgang Pauli, which has some A+ quotes:
This is to show the world that I can paint like Titian. [A big drawing of a rectangle] Only technical details are missing.
