The Museum of the Weird has been a place spoken of only in rumors for decades, but it wasn’t until Maxwell Keep wrote of his family’s connection to and adventures in the depository of paranormal artifacts that we had any first-person account of its existence.

Disney imaginer Rolly Crump seems to have had knowledge of this unique and frightening place, as he drew various elements of it during the design phase of the Haunted Mansion attraction. Whether Crump had first-hand knowledge of the museum or he was just somehow incredibly intuitive and/or channeling information from another dimension is unknown.

If This Is Wrong: A Film About Fandom from Franzeska Dickson on Vimeo.


It's a film about queer slash fangirls.  It is part of Franzeska's film school thesis. Part of the program is learning how to take a film from conception to the end - including learning how to fundraise to cover costs.
 

They're running their kickstarter right now! Lots of rewards, including a DVD of the movie and a paper zine.

Or, if you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation, you can do so through Franzeska's film school. There are instructions on their website.

New hard drive install and image restore went well. I was on my way by Monday. But even with all the software reinstalled I had to deal with


*corrupt outlook pst files
*multiple daily backups had to be tested and restored
*set up a weekly image backup - tested and restored
*fiddle with all the USB ports - matching USB 3.0 to USB 3.0 to make said backups faster
*order new USB hub, external hard drive and power strips
*buy a new vacuum cleaner (yes ours died) to have [personal profile] xlorp vacuum under the desk and behind the computer tower (dust!!)

then deal with (mainly driver problems)
*DVD player that won;t burn
*printers that won't print
*scanner that won't scan

all the while
*frantically testing DIY security cameras before the house next door gets torn down and rebuilt (with construction comes theft and break-ins).
*trying to create a front yard habitat for the feral cat living in a shed in the next door house about to be torn down. The shed protects her from coyotes at night and she will not enter our back yard due to another cat who has taken up residence


We're still not done with all of these so will continue to be elusive and non-resposnive

From Dreamwidth's recent post:

".... I'd like to take a moment and ask: if you're able to (and only if you're able!), please consider donating to the Russian LGBT Network/Российская ЛГБТ-сеть. They not only do excellent work across the Russian Federation, but are currently mobilizing to help evacuate LGBT people in Chechnya who are in danger of detention or death. (EDIT: If you're outside Russia, you can donate through All Out; the Russian LGBT Network website won't accept donations from outside Russia.)

To our friends in Russia who are LGBT and those who are against the mistreatment of anyone because of their sexual orientation: We stand with you. Please stay safe above all else, but if it would be safe for you to post that link, the LGBT Network is asking that as many people as possible publicly share the information that the LGBT Network is ready to help. (They also ask that you do not contact people in Chechnya directly to let them know, as there are reports the authorities are searching people's phones and computers for evidence of sexual orientation.)"

 My brain is mush. Restoring the hard drive and software is still underway. However, system images are the best backups - one stop backup of files and software.  I am using Macrium Reflect - the free version. Grab it folks and start making a weekly backup to an external hard drive and your fear of hard drive death will diminish.

My new hard drive is fucking with me however. After install, it failed the Short Drive test. Then passed. Then failed. Then passed.  The computer's extended service warranty expires in a few days, but the hard drive is warranted for another 30 days. So I will keep using Macrium Reflect to make system images.

The tech was helpful, also blew out 3 years worth of computer dust with my compressed air. To my horror, he gets rated on the entire service experience  - from the moment I made the call to the support center to him installing  the hard drive.  And if he gets anything less than a 9 out of 10, his supervisors will call me to find out why.  Since he did a good job I gave him 10, but the initial phone calls t the support center were not as good. 

Did I say my mind is mush.....

I backup a lot. I backup my backups. But one thing that is hard to backup are your installed software, profiles and configurations. Yes, there are system images but they can be tricky to re-install, especially when a hard drive is replaced and you have to decode whether to do a fresh OS install.

In any event, my hard drive failed the Short Disk Self Test so HP is sending me a new hard drive (with a human to arrive later in the week) to install it on Friday. My 3 year extended warranty dies in....7 days.   I ran  few of my own tests and found only 15 bad sectors on a 1.8 TB drive.  Which makes me worry it is a software corruption and not necessarily just a bad hard drive. Which makes the system images I am laboriously making a bit less attractive. But trying to reinstall years of software with license keys that may or may not work...if I can find them. And if I can find the older versions of the software that go along with them.

The other risk is that when the tech shows up they will crack open the case look at ait and say: Holy Fuck!! and take it all back and I will really be without any computer for weeks. I am not kind to my computers. I know I will one day have to answer to the Great Computer In The Sky for my misdeeds.

In the meantime, don't email me anything important. Expect that I will have forgotten any and all commitments by the time I re-emerge. Feel free to ping me again when I give the all clear sign.

turns out, that though we had a great time at Escapade that we came home with an unwanted guest: a nasty head cold. Both xlorp and and I are in bed coughing, sneezing, dripping and feebly moaning. Not a great way for xlorp to spend the last few days of vacation.

Your Guide to the Controversy About Russia and Sessions


Our government officials should not lie under oath. They should protect our democracy and resist foreign takeovers. Pick up the phone and call your state House Rep and your Senators and tell them we need a special prosecutor appointed to lead an independent investigation into Russia’s interference in the US elections and Attorney General Jeff Session’s perjury.

US intelligence has concluded “That Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered a campaign to influence the U.S. election "to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process,…”

Like you I am sad, depressed, enraged and terrified. I feel helpless and lost. I know we need to speak up and mobilize and fight for our lives (and the lives of everyone around us). But it feels overwhelming most days.

But here's the thing: we have no choice. It's like having to pee. You're lying in bed, sad and depressed and not wanting to get up because really what's the point and it's  fucked up and we're all going to die. But eventually you're going to have to pee. Might as well do it in the bathroom rather than down your pants.

So here is a photo of some "peeing".

  [personal profile] sdwolfpup  has a good post about how to build/design a vid show here: http://sdwolfpup.dreamwidth.org/595386.html  But I am looking for more examples.

 The only way we may be able to get through the next 4 years is by trying to be as kind as we can.  I have seen the Monday Pride thread    and I think it is something people should start doing each week.

So here goes

1. In December, my mother's neighbor displayed her personal menorah in the senior apartment complex lobby and it was stolen. My mother tried to buy the neighbor a replacement online, but the company failed to mail it, She finally got the credit card to reverse the charge, went to a local synagogue gift shop this week, bought  a new one and gave it to her neighbor. They hugged and cried a little.

2. One of the neighbors in my new Indivisible group posted this "Welcome Neighbor" sign on her lawn. Another neighbor whom she had never met brought her pastries from an Arabic bakery and thanked her. She brought them to the weekly Indivisible meeting today. You can find an Indivisible Group in your area here: https://www.indivisibleguide.com/local-action-groups/   Consider joining  one - it may make a difference to your sanity.

3. Today on NextDoor (a nationwide local mailing list) a woman posted that she was injured, had lost her job and needed to get health insurance but she could not afford the $2000 a month they would charge for COBRA. She thought she could not qualify for the ACA because her employer insurance did not run out  until after tonight's deadline. I emailed her right away, got her to call the ACA hotline and she was able to sign up in time.
