Lo there do I see my father; Lo there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers; Lo there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. Lo, they do call me, they bid me take my place among them, in the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live forever.
Drist I FFarwelio/ pouri ki te mea poroporoaki:
When Rik Mayall gave us all the farewell one finger I started adding a section to my review of those who have passed this year but this year has been harsh for a few fandoms. and bandoms. taking some greats beyond the veil.
I like lists normally. but not this one. I had to make a whole other section because this year just called for it.
"I Can Do Zat!" will go down in Star Trek history alongside "i'm a doctor not a florist." and "i canna do it captain." because of this Russian born actor. who was only 27 when he passed
and just to prove even death needs laughs, Celeste or one of her kind took one of the greatest female comedians and writers of our time Victoria wood. age 62
a man who with a voice like a groaning violin made none alts want to like a greasy loathsome wierdo with social issues (Snape obv) just one of his many memorable roles in an amazing career, Died age 69
Out with the Old and in with the new May the waining time be good to you. - 00:03 Samhain 30/10/16
My Wolfsbane4 rundown. when I should be working on my pictures or jobsearching :D but everyone else was posting and it got me itching to write despite a bit of a block so I apologise for if this is just typing diarrhea
wolfsbane 4 pictures can be found on my facebook and I am considering waking up my flickr and making an album
Taking place in Blackpool Ultimates was an usual con from the outset.
in the not so distant (but before my time) past Starfury had held conventions in Blackpool before the move to bigger venues in London and Birmingham, but this was the first in my time.
for the sake of Money and aeron_lanarts dog it was decided myself and Heather would crash in Liverpool at hers and travel in, meant some things wouldn't be possible that are part of our usual routine but it was as i have said better for the cashflow.( so - a Blackpool conCollapse )
I don't have my usual picspam capabilities as my camera decided to die mid talk.
I had a few personal set backs money and technology wise but other than that I think i'm an anomily this time round as despite the cueing nearly killing my bad leg I had a brilliant time
I'm not going to get into everyones moaning and complaining about the con, other peoples issues are their issues, but it is not cool to pass those issues onto the guests, there have been incidents where guests have decided (because of being tweeted by fans as well as other things) to refuse future offers of attending 3 day cons in the UK and i'm guessing other countries too.
it was a big con, Rogue are trying out new set ups, and there were a tone of newbies, and people expect everything to run perfect. on what planet exactly would that happen?
its like... if you live in a big city, theres no point complaining that its a big city.
ooh and my photoshoots are awesome! but theres not enough diskspace to show them
