Saturday Musings

Today was spent doing some paperwork, brainstorming and chatting on Skype with friends and family. I decided to postpone work on my upcoming guest lecture to next week. I have a solid core concept for it, but now putting it into perspective through slides is another thing. I also have a few ideas for possible further readings. I am also still wondering how to go about it in terms of videos (since the topic is about vidding from a narrative standpoint).

Tomorrow, I shall work on one of the videos I need to make for my February blog series. When I see the list of movies, I really see how eclectic my tastes are, but that is no news. I feel the muse stirring and wondering whether to come out of its comfortable box, so maybe I’ll start working on the next video tonight.

Speaking of vidding, I went through my collection of videos today to (re) make a list of all the ones I would consider posting to my YouTube channel, for they have to be Science Fiction/Fantasy and of “good enough” quality. No matter how picky I am, I have decided to put an older Farscape video of mine online, because I’m not really sure I could make this very one better now, not from an emotional approach at least. I haven’t vidded Farscape in forever, but writing my chapter about Aeryn Sun, Susan Ivanova and Delenn, brought me back to that show.

This video called What Never Really Dies focuses on Ka D’Argo’s and John Crichton’s friendship and how D’Argo left a lasting influence on his loved ones. Music is the Bee Gees songs: New York Mining Disaster 1941. They still are one of my favorite bands, and have been since I was a child.
