The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] mander3_swish has once again co-ordinated the QAF Holiday Gift Exchange.

She has just posted the first offering (some delicious Justin icons).

A couple of my fics will be there, and there are usually some wonderful surprises.

Please check it out and leave some comments so we all know it's worth doing again next year.

It's here QAF Gift Exchange.

oh - and I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, and Happy New Year!

This has been bugging me for weeks ... months, really.

In a perverse sort of way, I get Trumpism - that is the hateful xenophobic crap that he spouts where everyone who isn't a white male is to blame for all the ills of the world. I don't like it, but I get it.

But even if I bought into all that crap ...

Why would I believe The Donald when he says he can fix all that?

Why would I vote for a man whose sole field of expertise is in business, where he has a string (six, count them, six) of bankruptcies behind him?

What possible evidence is there that this person has the ability, the knowledge, the skills to achieve anything at all in life (given that he started his first business using Daddy's millions)?

That's what boggles me most.

It's not the hateful nature of his rhetoric. I absolutely understand who that's playing to.

It's the fact that people believe him when, without any demonstrable proof or evidence, he says he's the only one who can fix what they perceive to be wrong with their country.

That's what I don't get.

Can anyone explain it to me?

I just wanted to post something on here - I guess to see what other people think.

I've made a decision that I won't follow or friend anyone who uses someone else's name in their "handle".

E.g. if someone calls themselves "Jane Kinney" or "Jenelle Harold", the chances are that those aren't their real names and there's something about that that makes me uncomfortable.

I recognise that many of us don't use our real names in social media - for a variety of reasons. And that's fine. But to adopt the name of a beloved character or, even more spuriously, of an actor/ singer/ performer I find ... it doesn't sit well with me.

So that's my new policy.

I wondered what other people thought.

Just wanted to quickly post something about The Abominable Bride.

No spoilers - just two things.

One is that a lot of critics have been carping (not to say whingeing) about the stuff towards the end. Won't go into details, but wanted to say that the stuff that some people feel "spoiled" the episode was exactly the stuff that I found most exciting and which I most liked (okay, loved) about it.

So don't be put off by people who just wanted a cozy Victorian mystery as the Christmas special, because it's not like that at all and that's exactly what's truly great about it.

2nd thing under cut because it's spoilerish - no details but may give away a little of the plot direction )

Anyway, just wanted to say - because I've read a lot of tosh in the last day or so about this episode.

Which, by the way, I thought was simply brilliant and can hardly wait to see it again, so I've already ordered the dvd.

It's an article in the UK Daily Telegraph from back in October (here if you want to look for yourself):

30 Great Opening Lines

I admit that some of these really pack a punch, one way or another.

It starts with Jane Austen: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Jane Austen: Pride and Prejudice (1813)

Continues with lines like:

"All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."
Leo Tolstoy: Anna Karenina (1878)

"It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen."
George Orwell: Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949)

"It was a queer, sultry summer, the summer they electrocuted the Rosenbergs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York."
Sylvia Plath: The Bell Jar (1963)

“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous vermin.”
Franz Kafka: Metamorphosis (1915)

“The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new.”
Samuel Beckett: Murphy (1938)

I didn't have any quarrel with any of those, or with most of the others selected, come to that, until I came to this:

"There was no possibility of taking a walk that day."


Seriously? A "great" opening line?

For those who don't recognise it (because it's hardly memorable), it's from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Now I admit I am not an admirer of the Brontes. At some point in my life I've had to read just about all their stuff for one class or another and personally, I think they write total tripe.

However, I accept that some people love their stuff, and that's fine.

But surely a "great" opening line has to have more going for it than that it's the first line of a book that someone likes.

I'm putting the rest of this under a cut so if you don't read purely for enjoyment you can just ignore it completely. ).


I know I said I'd put the rest under a cut, but while I was looking up the first line of the Colour of Magic I came across this website:

The Colour of Magic Quotes by Terry Pratchett"

If you've never ready the Discworld books, I can only feel regret that you've missed out, alongside envy that you have all that pleasure before you. If you want to start, The Colour of Magic is the first.

Here are a few highlights:

“Rincewind tried to force the memory out of his mind, but it was rather enjoying itself there, terrorizing the other occupants and kicking over the furniture.”

*****

“No, what he didn't like about heroes was that they were usually suicidally gloomy when sober and homicidally insane when drunk.”

*****

“Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty or derring-do. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer to achieve immortality by not dying.”

*****

Seriously, the man was a comic genius. Go read his stuff. If you find the thought of all those Discworld books to much to cope with, try Good Omens, the book he wrote with that other genius Neil Gaiman.


And because I can't resist, just one quote from that (seriously, to cover all my favourite lines I'd have to quote just about the whole book):

“IT WASN’T A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT. It should have been, but that’s the weather for you. For every mad scientist who’s had a convenient thunderstorm just on the night his Great Work is finished and lying on the slab, there have been dozens who’ve sat around aimlessly under the peaceful stars while Igor clocks up the overtime.”

Can honestly say I've had less interesting weeks.

Started last Monday night with Sherlock from script to screen.

That was fascinating and amusing and just generally would have lifted the week into "remarkably memorable" category all on its own.

Mark Gatiss, Stephen Moffat and Sue Vertue talking about how the Sherlock series came into being and a little about the Christmas special.

They were witty and charming and insightful and most of all passionate about both the show and the original Sherlock Holmes. Lovely.

Then on Tuesday night and again on Thursday night (because I'm greedy), I was lucky enough to see Hugh Jackman's From Broadway to Oz.

He is not just a phenomenal showman, he's ... real. I don't know how else to put it. He comes across with such warmth and down to earth humour that I don't think I could ever be convinced that he's anything but "a bloody good bloke". The sort of bloke that if he wasn't an international super star you'd love to have for a next door neighbour.

If I hadn't had other commitments on Wednesday and Friday nights I would have gone to all four Melbourne shows.

If ever you have the chance to see him on stage, particularly in this kind of show where he gets to choose his own material and his own approach and line of patter, please don't hesitate for an instant.

He truly is a phenomenon and if I thought he was fabulous in The Boy From Oz (the Peter Allen musical) he was even more so in this show.

He sang musical theatre classics like My Boy Bill, Lucky Be a Lady Tonight, I Won't Dance and Singing in the Rain. He was supported by an orchestra and a whole chorus line which allowed him to stage a fabulous medley of "New York" songs, including Lullaby of Broadway and finish the first half with a little selection from Les Miserables including the wonderful first act finale One Day More complete with the "students" waving red flags and it gave me goosebumps as it always does.

In the second half he did a selection of things from Boy From Oz - I'm not the Boy Next Door which always makes me laugh a little, but it's wry laughter, and Silence, There's a Lady on the Stage, which makes me so nostalgic and quietly sad for the last years of the wonderful Judy Garland.

He sang I Still Call Australia Home and it made me cry.

He invited some Aboriginal artists to join him on stage and showed such respect to them and to their culture that it truly touched my heart.

All the way through the show he talked and joked and told yarns that brought smiles and chuckles and occasionally a laugh out loud moment.

And at the end he left everyone in that huge auditorium feeling that they'd spent the evening with a friend.

What an incredible gift!

It was an amazing week.

And after all that I've spent much of the weekend watching the "day/night" Test Match, bemused and trying to work out why anyone would prefer to watch cricket under stadium lights rather than under sunlight.

I don't think I'll ever understand that.

But as the first day/ night test in Aus seems to have attracted record crowds, I guess there's a lot of people who do.

Weird.

To me ... just weird.

So I got to Cardiff last night completely exhausted. (It was kind of a busy weekend in Bilbao and I was still jet-lagged.)


I'd known I would be in need of some R&R so I'd booked myself into the St David's hotel. They upgraded me to the executive suite on the top floor. This is a lifestyle I could get used to all too quickly! (If only I had the cash to maintain it!)

I have my internet connection back, but not enough time to do anything with it.

This doesn't look like changing any time in the near future.

If I come across one more instance of someone using the word "disinterested" when they mean "uninterested" I'm going to seriously lose it.

And don't start me on the "then"/ "than" thing.

While I'm on about language, the correct expression is "if that's what (insert pronoun/ name here) thinks, they've got another think coming". It is not "another thing coming". Why would it be? Seriously.

And of course, I'm firmly in the court of those who believe that the expression is "make do" (as in "I don't have any fresh milk, so I'll make do with long life"). I.e. I will make long life milk do the job of fresh milk. I cannot begin to conceive why anyone would think that "make due" makes any sense at all in that context. I'm not expecting to get an invoice for either kind of milk.

Sorry.

I've had to do a lot of reading of various materials over the last month or so (as well as a little fan fic in my rare leisure moments) and I am totally over the fact that not only do people seem to have an aversion to writing any sentence with more than six or seven words, but I keep running across the same little irritants over and over so by now I'm seeing them as seriously egregious.

I blame Dan Brown. Seriously. Almost single-handedly he has lowered the bar of popular literature to the point where reading the sort of simplistically written ... I'm trying to think of a relatively inoffensive word here, but none will come ... drivel is the best I can do ... he churns out is actually adversely affecting people's ability to use language.


Sorry, I just needed to whinge a little.

I hope you're all well and looking forward to the weekend.

Confession first - I've just made an amendment to Chapter 14 of Homework. I blush to admit that I'd totally forgotten that Justin had remembered the Prom dance until someone (the ever wonderful Miss Miko) pointed it out to me. So I've changed that paragraph a little.

The squeeing is almost totally unrelated to QAF. Almost.

As some of you may know I am a huge Benedict Cumberbatch fan - have been ever since I saw him in Amazing Grace and a couple of Brit TV shows before ever Sherlock came along.

Anyway - I managed to get a ticket to see him in Hamlet, and planned a month long trip to the UK around it.

(That worked out fairly well when the Gale Harold fanmeet was announced, because all I had to do was to tweak the dates a little so that instead of the trip starting with Hamlet it now starts with Gale and finishes with Hamlet.)

But then on Friday night, I got notice that Sir Kenneth Brannagh is staging some stuff in London at the Garrick Theatre, The seasons opens with Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale, starting on 17th October - just before I come home. And I actually managed to get online and get a ticket.

Now, I'd be quite thrilled about seeing Ken Brannagh, because I've been lucky enough to follow his career almost from the beginning - I got to see his Henry V at Stratford in 1984 (I can not believe it was more than 30 years ago!). And that same season he appeared as Laertes in Hamlet and Navarre in Love's Labours Lost (I can still remember laughing myself silly over that one).

Anyway, lovely as it will be to see Sir Ken as Leontes, even better ... and the thing that has me absolutely sqeeuing with delight ... is that Dame Judi Dench is playing Paulina.

I have adored Judi Dench ever since I saw her in a TV screening of a trilogy of plays called Talking to a Stranger back in 1966.

I've been lucky enough to see her on stage several times but to have the chance to see her even once more is such an amazing gift, it seems like a small miracle.

I can hardly wait.

*squees to herself quietly and happily*


(Oh, and if you ever come across the dramatised version of the Winnie the Pooh stories, with Dame Judi and her (sadly deceased) husband Michael as narrators, Geoffrey Palmer as Eyeore and the wonderful Stephen Fry as Pooh, treat yourself. Don't let the little ones have all the fun!

Just wanted to take a moment to wish all my American friends "Happy Thanksgiving". Especially those of you I've been lucky enough to meet in person over the years. I think of you all often, and value the time we've been able to spend together. I hope all of you are well and safe and that you have a very enjoyable Thanksgiving however you spend it.

I also wanted to say that sometime in the next day or so I shall be posting a Thanksgiving story. It's a sequel to "Love's Not Time's Fool". Gus has arrived, and it's Thanksgiving week. How will Brian juggle things between his son and his ghostly lover? (Wish him luck with that one!)

Hi everyone

Just to let you know that the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] mander3_swish has come up with a brilliant idea for this year's gift exchange (on the [livejournal.com profile] qaf_giftxchnge community).

A number of people have said that they'd like to take part, but (rightly or wrongly) they don't feel that their writing, icon making, vid making, etc. talents are up to offering their work in exchange for someone else's efforts.

So ... this year, the community is holding a fund-raising raffle.

The way it works is that in exchange for a donation to either the Ali Forney Center in NY, or to a similar charity that supports LGBTIQ youth in your local area, you get entries to win either a story from [livejournal.com profile] xie_xie_xie, or a Bj/ QAF doodle from [livejournal.com profile] reeface or a vid from [livejournal.com profile] maybe742.

The more you donate, the more entries you get. Which means you can have a chance to win a Holiday gift from some of the fandom's talented creative types, even if you're too unsure to submit something yourself.

So please check it out and consider a donation. Heaven knows it's in a good cause.

The details are here:

Hi everyone

As you may know, there is currently a Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for a movie called Kiss Me, Kill Me.

The movie is directed by David Michael Barrett who directed Such Good People which starred Randy Harrison.

Gale Harold has some kind of role (as yet undefined) in the new movie.

Recently in response to an entry in [livejournal.com profile] kinwad's journal, [livejournal.com profile] gaedhal posted an exchange between herself and David.

The point Gael was making was that she feels that the fandom is being exploited by people who cast Gale, sometimes in a very small role, to encourage his fans to financially support their projects.

I have to say that I agree with just about everything Gael says. I do feel that there is a degree of exploitation that goes on in these situations. And I am becoming a little cynical about it. (Saving Gale Harold's own projects of course, like The Lock.)

So I totally respect Gael's point of view.

(If you want to read what she said (and David's response), it's in one of her comments to this entry.

Kin's journal entry

However, I did support this project on Kickstarter.

And only marginally because Gale was cast in it. I supported it because I believe this film, and others like it are an part of an important process in promoting understanding and acceptance for the LGBT community.

So I thought I'd share my thoughts - the email I sent to David.

And the response I received.


Here's the text of my email:


Hi David

More than happy to support projects like this.

As a long time fag hag, I'm thrilled to see films being made by gay film makers or straight, starring gay actors or straight that are about gay people just getting on with their lives.

I don't mean "gay-themed" movies, I mean movies like SGP. For me, one of the things I liked most about that movie was that, while the two central characters were gay, that was mostly incidental to the movie as a whole.

I don't know if I'm explaining myself well, but I believe that this process of placing gay characters in central roles which are not essentially about their sexuality is incredibly important.

I honestly believe that it's the way to build understanding and therefore wider and more unconditional acceptance. To me, there's something very powerful about focusing on the "sames" rather than the "differents", if that makes sense.

Of course the differences are there - as there are differences between Yanks (no offense) and Poms and Aussies. But the tendency of many gay films (and gay literature) in general to focus on the differences and the struggles arising from those differences to some extent just keeps emphasising the "different" and therefore reinforcing the distance.

Sorry, didn't mean to climb on the soap box, but I did want to explain why I am so happy to support your work. I truly loved SGP and am looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.

The fact that Gale Harold has a role is a happy addition.

But I'd want to support the movie anyway.

Wishing you every success

Regards

Wendy



And, for those who are interested, David's response:

Hi Wendy!

Thank you so much for that very sweet email. Yes, I totally agree. I think the future of LGBT cinema should be "Victim-Free" meaning -- the fact that the characters are gay should not be what the story is about. That's what i was so thrilled to do in Such Good People.

And that's what we're doing again in Kiss Me, Kill Me. It's a murder mystery that happens to have gay characters. I could have very easily done the same movie with straight characters -- but I think making it with gay characters makes it so much more interesting.

And I agree with you about how this is the way to truly have audiences see gay people. Not as people with a problem because they're gay. But problems that anyone could have.

We're so excited about this new film -- people are responded to our campaign. We do still have a very long way to go.

But we'll get there!!!

Thanks again for your support!

DMB


So there you have it.

I think that if small films like this one are made, and have some success, then that paves the way for bigger films with gay characters in central roles that are not about their gay-ness. And that this process is an important part of "normalising" same sex characters and relationships.

Given that this is October, with its focus on anti-bullying, I'd add that I also firmly believe that this process is critical, long term, to reducing, even eliminating bullying of our LGBT sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, friends. And that that in turn may help reduce the horrific figures of suicides among LGBT teens.

So that is why I decided to support the movie on Kickstarter. It came to my attention in part because Gale Harold has some kind of role in the movie.

And also because it's directed by David who directed Randy Harrison in SGP.

But I'm supporting it because I liked SGP, I loved the way it handled the sexuality of its characters, and I truly believe that films like these have an important role to play in the fight for achieving true equality.

If you're interested in supporting it for whatever reason, the Kickstarter link is:

Hi guys

I'm not bad with American lingo, but this one has me stumped.

Someone has written that they don't want "BOGS" coming into their store.

What does this mean?

To me (Aust English shares a lot with British) it sounds like they don't want toilets walking through their doors. But that can't be right. Can it?

Any help with this translation most gratefully received.

Tonight I went to see Bridegroom Movie. It was amazingly touching and inspiring. I cried (I also laughed a few times - Great Grandma is a hoot!) and I was lucky enough afterwards to exchange a few words with Shane Bitney Crone.

One of the projects I've been working on for the last few weeks is doing at least a little to help put together the transcripts of most of the Gale and Randy sessions from Bilbao. The main drive for this came from [livejournal.com profile] mytearsinheaven and most of the work was done by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] kinwad who is hosting the transcripts on her livejournal. I was lucky enough to help with one or two and to do a bit of beta work on some as well.

The link is at the bottom of this post, but I just thought that I'd add a few sentences to clarify for anyone not familiar with the way Conventions tend to work:

Panels are open to all attendees and are usually held in the main hall, so the guests are up on the platform and people who want to ask a question queue up at the microphone.

Meet and Greets are smaller groups (you pay to attend these separately) - usually around 20 - 25 people, and they are much less formal - everyone sits around the room on couches and arm chairs and people just jump in with their questions whenever there's a lull (there are more of those than you would think).

Coffee sessions are sometimes smaller again, but in Bilbao they were actually the same (and held in the same room) - the only difference was that you might be able to get a cup of coffee - if you jumped in early enough and the urn hadn't run out.

Aside from the opening and closing (which were both really short) all the panels were individual sessions (i.e. either Gale or Randy but not both), but there were both individual and "duo" meet and greets and coffee sessions.

Before you go to the link, please be respectful of the hard work that has gone into preparing these and don't repost anywhere without credit.

Anyway, here is the link to the first one - the opening and Randy's first panel. Links to the rest are being placed at the end of that one as Kin posts them. It might take a few days to get them all up.

Ignore my abysmal typing (I should never try to type anything longer than two words from my phone).  But here is a F/B conversation with the lovely Sheena Metal from earlier this week.

Hi everyone

Have spent the day finishing of chapter #8 and also playing with photoshop.

Don't know if any of you are interested, but thought I'd show you what the pool area looked like before photoshop got involved.

Here is the original:

windows

And here's how it looked once I was done putting in the glass decking above the pool area.  Which meant

a) putting in something that looked like glass bricks or tiles and
b) flattening the ceiling, rather than having it slope.

Plus I needed to get rid of the brick walls and the hideous furniture.

Admitting that I could have spent more time and evened out some of the lines and stuff, I don't think it's too bad.

I love photoshop.

Thank you

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] rulisteningbj; [livejournal.com profile] kmboatright; [livejournal.com profile] ancilu and [livejournal.com profile] spike7451 for my gifts.

They were lovely and brightened my day.

And here is something that brightened my last day in Bilbao. We were wandering through the Old Town and came across a wedding shop - sold cake toppers, and all the general accoutrements for all kinds of weddings. This was part of the window display.

Hopefully one day, in all countries, this will be such a common sight that none of us will even notice it. Except maybe to think, 'remember when we first saw this kind of thing'.

Somebody sent me a link to this article:

Why Do Women Love Toxic Gay Television Relationships?

asking what I thought about it. I want to thank her very much because writing this has crystallised a lot of things about how I see QAF (then and now) and why it fascinated me so much.

So ... what did I think about the article?



This is the full response to that question (and be warned, I was annoyed by the article and some of the language that follows is ... er ... colourful. Worthy of Brian Kinney, in fact. )
