Misc and various vid recs

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here – June is the busiest month of the year at work, and I’ve also been busy finish up not one, not two, but three new TOS K/S fanzines – I’m finishing T’hy’la # 34 now.

Plus Shore Leave, plus RL, and now it’s mid-August – where did the summer go? Where did the *year* go?

Vid Recs

We Didn’t Start The Fire by fiercynn and scribe

One of the best multifandom vids I’ve ever seen, and one which tracks my own fannish involvement from TOS to BBC Sherlock with lots of passions and mild flirtations in between.

A multifandom vid featuring starships and their crew. Cool!

#34...wow, that's amazing!

Thanks for the recs. Those vids are fabulous. That first one had more fandoms than I've ever seen in a vid before. Very cool. I loved the Trek one, too (Pike's 'dare' to Kirk is my fave bit of dialogue in the film).
Amazes me, too. I've gone a couple of years in between doing zines, and then I suddenly do three in one year. This time, it was just supposed to be one, but awarrington pointed out t me last year that I published my 1st issue of T'hy'la in 1981, and wouldn't it be cool to do a 30th anniversary issue? And I said yes, and then wound up not being able to do a zine at all last year, due to RL, so I announced it for this year and got so many great novellas it turned into three issues - wow!

Glad you liked the vids - I think all of them premiered at VividCon; amazing work. Agreed, that first one put so many fandoms in one place it's hard to think of anything that was left out.

(I love Pike's 'dare' to Kirk, too.)

Rumor has it that Gary Mitchell will be the bad guy in the next reboot movie.

Benedict Cumberbatch is playing "Gary Mitchell" as I understand it. That should be awesome! Though not as awesome as a *30th* Anny Plus edition of T'hy'la. Now that's truly mind-blowing!
three zines? you're nuts in a perfectly wonderful kind of way.

will poke at vids too; thanks for the recs.
LOL, yes, I love the way you put that about me being nuts. I didn't intend to do three zines this year, but awarrington pointed out last year that I published my 1st issue of T'hy'la in 1981, and wouldn't it be cool to do a 30th anniversary issue? And I said yes, and then wound up not being able to do a zine at all last year, so I announced it for this year and got so many great novellas it turned into three issues - I'll be publishing # 34 in September.
