A few things - Movies in Fifteen Minutes
This is, after all, what happens when you cross the streams.
A few things
<< From yesterday: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in Fifteen Minutes.

>> Up now: The new Made of Fail podcast I'm on, Episode Nineteen: We Put On Our Robes And Wizard Hats (with an awesome, HP-themed special opening), wherein we discuss the movie itself. Sadly, of the two girls, I'm the one 1) with the Southern accent 2) and the weird laugh 3) who you can't hear too well, because my mic is weaksauce. So I talk plenty, but my volume level itself is a bit soft. But, to orient you, here's two short clips where it's clearly me talking:

1) The wizard duel at my theater on opening night

2) "Ginny Weasley got some moves!"

Also, hang in there for an Alan Rickman-induced gigglefit that seizes Jillian and me around 1h:19m and, shortly after that, a segment on wizard rock.

(This episode was recorded last week, but as it turns out, around 11m:30s, you get an explanation of a scene heading and a line that ended up in the 15M.)

>> In the 15M itself, I have now changed "wireless" to "radio," since people were having such a hard time figuring out what was going on there.

>> I feel bad that it's taken me this long to get another 15M up--I swear, I'm not abandoning it. I actually have half-drafts for Watchmen and Star Trek and just could not make either one happen (I think "Twilight in Fifteen Minutes" may have broken me). I've been having some health problems the last few months, it's been hard to write this kind of thing (where it's either funny or it's not, and you sweat bullets over it), so on and so forth.

>> In a similar vein, I want to do icons, but I don't know how quickly I can get on that. Please feel free to do your own if you want, and I'll link to them.

>> And finally: I'm on Twitter. Warning: I am really on Twitter, like, a lot (a lot of links and RTing), so be prepared. This weekend with everyone posting about San Diego Comic-Con has been particularly busy, but I'm not usually that bad. Mostly.

Just thought I'd share: Awesome Twilight Icons.

I suddenly find myself without Photoshop, unable to make icons that actually look good, or I would make some. And remake mine.

Pleas take care of yourself and do whatever you need for your health. We will all understand.
my best wishes.

There was something awesomely similar to the Wizard Duel at the theater I went to: there were a bunch of people dressed up as various characters, including one girl who dressed up as, I kid you not, the Golden Snitch. She went to all 8 screens with two other guys and did a Quidditch-playing floor show. It was entertaining... for about thirty seconds.

And please, do take care of yourself first. (I can't imagine recounting Watchmen in under thirty minutes, honestly, and given all the pandemonium surrounding Star Trek...gah, I wouldn't even know where to begin.)

Aw, hope you feel better! And interesting hearing your voice! :)

It's true though, as soon as I heard way back when about the added Shoelaces of LUV scene the first thing I thought was of the sexual connotation--she has moves indeed! ;) I heard one person say that in their theater someone shouted, "While you're down there, Ginny...." :p

That's cool about the Wizard duel though, I wish I could have gone to a midnight showing....I went at 7 pm that day, and there was just no spirit or fandom nerdiness at all, I saw only one other person remotely dressed up.

oh god, i'd kill for a star trek m15m, though it would be difficult as we'd probably be unable to see any of it due to the sheer amount of lensflare.

but i understand the funny-or-not thing, and i hope you're feeling better :).

There you go. Now you have a band name for when we get you to start playing Rock Band.
cleolinda From: cleolinda Date: July 27th, 2009 12:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
See, man, this is what you missed.

And I do so play Rock Band! I just don't get to play it a lot!

For what it's worth, I think most of us would be happy to see your drafts - especially if the block becomes long-term, and it starts to hang over you. On the other hand, I understand the desire to not release "until it's ready." Do what feels right, as Spock Prime said.

Well, but there's large chunks of nothing there, is the problem.

Your health is more important than our LOLs. Thanks for the latest m15m, it was awesome!

Yessssssssss following you immediately. :D :D :D

No, it's okay! I mean, when you don't update for eight months, that's not an unfair assumption. I did a good number in 2004, but after that, I really only did two or three a year, and I think people forget that I never really put out that many to begin with. But yeah, the eight months thing, I don't blame people for thinking I had just finally wandered away.

I'm new here at m15m, but I hope you don't mind me following you on Twitter. I Twitter a lot myself...

The new one made my day! LOL, as always!

For what it's worth, though, some of us Americans do know what a "wireless" is. (I'm sorry to say that I still don't get that particular joke, though. Maybe the problem is that some of the others are just as dense as I am? ;-) )

In Say Anything, John Cusack stands under Ione Skye's window with a boombox playing Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" held over his head. I guess it helps if you're a child of the '80s (or older), like me?
eofs From: eofs Date: July 27th, 2009 07:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
I suspect it's a bit of a "if you get the reference, you're more likely to twig what wireless means from context" sort of situation.

Although funnily enough today at work I made the mistake the opposite way round - it meant wireless internet, and I read it to mean radio! Oops. Showing my age there (she says aged 24...)

Aww, I hope one of these days you can get the Watchmen and Star Trek ones finished. I'd love to read them.

I hope you continue to feel better. Your health has gotta be number one. I am looking forward to reading the HP in 15 min that you've posted, and I thank you in advance for writing it. Take care of yourself.

That is absolutely the best description of Alan Rickman's voice, EVERRRRRRR

I hope you are feeling better - I first found you when you did PoA and it was love at first sight.

I loved GQ Draco :D

Anyway, be well!
