morgandawn: (Lavender Field Here Now)
This is an journal for and by adults dealing with sexual and political as well as personal issues. If you are under the age of 18, please get the appropriate consent before proceeding.

Fan:
I am a multi-media fan, love sci-fi and fantasy and have been involved in reading and writing fan fiction for the past 12 years. I am in my 40s (to give you a rough age and experience range). My fan fiction can be found here. Fiction with adult ratings or adult subject matter will be labeled and cut-tagged. Please read responsibly. My fan vids can be found in streaming format here

Person:
My other interest is a rare genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) that I have been diagnosed with.   I also ask that you take time to read this before posting or commenting about EDS.  Please note that comments on typos, grammar and formatting will be deleted. LJ formatting problems may or may not be able to be fixed - do not feel offended if I am unable to respond to your request. Hopefully after reading about EDS, you will understand why it is difficult to type and participate online.

WARNING: If you a
re looking for more info about EDS please header over to the volunteer EDS Alert blog here. This is a private journal and EDS is not the main topic of discussion. Please do not give out the link to my private journal (unless you are interested in fannish things, vidding or disussions about slash and sexuality). If you're only interested in EDS, I tag my EDS posts here.

LJ Info:
I really don't have a friending policy. In fact I am somewhat haphazard about it. If you are adding me to your journal reading list and want to be added back, it does help to drop me a note who you are and what are your interests. I have extensive filters and try to keep up with people that way. My blog contains a wide range of topics: personal, political, financial, legal. fannish, and medical. I can be silly and serious. cranky and goofy -often in the same post. I have a very twisted sense of humor - if you think something is funny, more likely than not I am intending it to be funny. And sometimes I am intending it to be so even when you don't think it is funny. My humor requires a great deal of ....humour. And last if you are reading this journal or if you've asked to be added to my friends list to read locked posts - you are agreeing to this. Read it. And then if you want to be added to my friends list, drop me a comment with some info on who you are, what topics you are interested in and that you've read and agreed to the things I need in order for me to feel comfortable inviting you into the more private areas of my 'home.'

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find.....

Are we there yet? And where are the flying cars?

Update: April 15, 2013: The bulk of the fanzine information has been moved to Fanlore, the fan run wiki. You can access Fanlore's home page here.
_____________________________________
If you're looking for a list of fanzines by fandom, this is what I have so far:

Place of Honor:  Starsky & Hutch. Pepper has compiled the most amazing and complete fanzine listing. Mahvelous. Go here

1. Alphabetical listing
A-Team - list here (last updated in 1997) and here
Beauty & the Beast here and here
Buffy and Angel
Blake's 7  - Judith has an extensive list here
Dr Who - partial lists available here and here and here
Due South -Ray Vecchio Fanzines and  Ray Kowalski Fanzines
Inspector Morse here
The Magnificent 7 here
The Man From U.N.C.L.E - slash fanzines here, gen and slash fanzines here
The Professionals -The Hatstand  and Palely Loitering (with their own LJ here)
Quantum Leap - old list, needs updating
Rat Patrol - Excel spreadsheet here
Real Ghostbusters - here (defunct, last updated 2002). A more current list is here
Robin of Sherwood here
Seaquest here and here
The Sentinel - Loft Library -Slash Zines and Gen Zines
Smallville here
Shadow Chasers here (old archive)
Sherlock Holmes here
Stargate SG1 - old list here

Supernatural - here
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea here
Xena/Hercules - partial list here

2. Multi-Fandom Lists

Ming's Fanzine Archives (Star Trek, Star Wars & other Fandoms - click on the pdfs for the list)
Fandom Wikis - FanLore and Fan History

3. What To Do With That Aging Fanzine Collection?  If you don't  want to sell your fanzines on eBay or at a convention, the  Fan Culture Preservation Project  will help fans find homes for their fanzine collections - either at the University of Iowa or  via fellow fans.  More here and  here.

What I like about the Fan Culture Project is that the University will pay for shipping and loading of the zines.  I have several friends whose health has declined, don't want to sell their collection, but want to find their fanzines a good home.

Other places to buy/sell your fanzines: the Zinelist Announcements List, its sister discussion mailing list  Zinelist or the SlashSwap mailing list. You can offer your fanzines on LJ at Fandom Swap.     Jim and Melody Rondeau will also agent your fanzines online and at conventions for a small commission. As a last resort head over to eBay but beware you may be charged 2-3x more than you would buying from fannish sources.

For new zines/in print zines only:  The Zine listing communities - one here on Dreamwidth and the mirror here on LJ. Melody Clark has started MediaFen, a fanzine listing blog. The RSS feed for LJ users is here. The direct blog link is here.

If you're trying to track down a fanzine producer whose website has moved or gone away, try using the Wayback Machine.  Ex:  The Zine Zone (last updated in 2003) is archived here.

4. Any other lists? Drop a note. And feel free to link here, as I'll update it.

Looking for Fanzine lists:
Star Trek - gen/het

Year: 2009, shown at Vividcon

Vid link: http://ift.tt/2fDFa7G

Vidder’s Notes: 

“Interrogating people, getting to the truth and knowing the right thing to do politically are two very different things. In fact, to do either of them very well, you have to pretty much ignore one of them altogether, which is what I’ve done. So now, I’m in trouble again…” - Brenda in ep 113: Standards and Practices

So call me a bitch in heat and
I’ll call you a liar
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead
There you go again you cut me off from talkin’
You bask in the glory
The center of the circle
All the friends think you’re a comedian
So kind and generous
But I am suffering
Away from here
I wanna be
Away from here
Away from here
Away from every little thing
Every little thing
I used to love your every little every little thing
So call me a bitch in heat and
I’ll call you a liar
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead
You’re the puppeteer and I’m the puppet
You manipulate me with your real catholic shit
Everytime I try to talk it through
You turn it around and make it suffer
Like David and Goliath
Away from here
I wanna be
Away from here
Away from here
Away from every little thing
Every little thing
I used to love your every little every little thing
Now you call me a bitch in heat and
I’ll call you a liar
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead
Your arms beneath me
Your lying inside me
I used to love your every little every little thing
Your eyes grew stars
Your hand in my purse
And now I hate your every little everything all day
Oh mama
I didn’t know life was this hard
Oh mama
My innocence has been tarred
My inner vision, dulled and darkened
I keep myself away to you
I fuck my sorrow humbly
And throw my crown upon the ground
It’s you I hope for
And us I pray for
And me that I believed that was wrong
And now my anger is my best friend
Be careful I may bite your head off
Liar
So call me a bitch in heat and
I’ll you a motherfucker
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead
So call me a bitch in heat and
I’ll you a motherfucker
And we’ll throw stones until we’re dead

Connie Faddis has graciously offered to allow us to post her fic online. For now, they will be available in PDF format download. If someone wants to convert them to html and post them on a fic archive, I'd be happy to put you in contact with her.

First up: The Place of Men-Made-Stone by Connie Faddis

Spock joins an anthropological landing party on a desert planet in hopes of a bit of R & R and ends up experiencing an episode from the planet’s past in which the indigenous Ummir drive the lizard-like Kivari to destruction for having enslaved them - creating the rock formations in the valley.

Second up: The Third Wheel  published in the print fanzine Interphase.

Two reviews from Fanlore:

  • an excellent story, 'The Third Wheel' written from McCoy's point of view, which captures well the deep-down feeling between McCoy and Spock that we all expected was hidden there somewhere (1976)

  • It also follows Connie's pattern of both De Profundis and Mojave Crossing -- starting out good, and then somehow, magically, late in the story, something inside the story fuses and melts and transforms into something incredible and breathtaking and very different. And in the last conversation between Spock and McCoy it's no longer idfic but it's a pitch-perfect moment of connection, really sincere, meaningful, and just plain lovely. Like a plot twist, except it's not the plotline that gets twisted. An emotion growth-twist? A character-relationship-arc twist? I don't know, but the ending of The Third Wheel is the most heartwarming new thing I've read in some time (2014)
You can download the fic here.

If you live in a Democratic state you can help.

.....if you live in a state with two Democratic Senators who support the ACA, you may be asking yourself: what more can I do? How can I influence persuadable Republicans in red states who may be on the fence?

Well, we have an answer! We’re bringing back the blue state/red state calling tool from the last healthcare fight.

https://www.trumpcareten.org/calls-to-kill-trumpcare

Here’s how it works:

  1. Sign up below to make phone calls from our peer-to-peer dialing tool. You’ll get an email confirmation with a login, password, and URL to sign into our system. Once signed in, you can start making calls immediately—and we’ll give you a script to make it as easy as possible!

  2. Next, you’ll call a voter in a key state with a swing Republican Senator. These folks are your friends—they attended the Women’s March, they’re standing up to #DefendDACA, and/or fight for progressive causes.

  3. You explain how they have power now. You’ll remind them why the continued fight against TrumpCare is so important—and why they have particular power in this moment.

  4. You ask them to use their power. You’ll ask them to call their senator in opposition to the bill, and to share their own reasons for opposing it.

  5. The tool connects them to their Senator’s office. The call tool will allow you to automatically patch them through to the Senators’ district offices.

It’s super easy: more than 1,000 Indivisibles in blue states made 100,000 phone calls to constituents in our target states in the final two days before the healthcare vote in July. And we won. We can win this time, too.

They are just one vote shy of repealing the ACA. If any of these Senators represent you, call them NOW. This is an all-hands-on-deck moment. 

if you have family or friends in these states, ask them to call. Or use Resist Bot to fax their Senators.  Text RESIST to 50409

 I am working with a third party to convert VHS tapes onto DVD. At home, I only use the copyguard removal tool when the video won't  transfer  (note: most of the tapes are not protected, just really crappy quality). The reason is that when the tool is turned on, it caused horizontal "tearing" or wavy lines (think really bad Twilight Zone effect) on all clips.  So I use it only sparingly when I have no other choice

The third party is using a Time Based Corrector which also serves as  copyguard remover (if needed). We're getting the same problem - even if a tape has no copyguard on it, if the tool is turned on, it causes wavy lines. There is no way for him to capture without it (his setup is fixed).  

I'd love another set of eyes on the results to decide whether to proceed. And of course any suggestions.


  

edited: based on feedback, I tried adding a different TBC/clarifier (Panasonic DMR-ES10), inserting it before the Canopus capture card. This stabilized the image but introduced  a red/purple color shift across the clips. Again, this is not copy-protected tape - just really bad source.

What this tells me is this

1.An automated approach may not be feasible - we either live with jagged lines through all the vids or red/purple color shift through all the vids. Or we stick with the labor intensive method - run the video until it stops, mark the location, proceed and then return to decrypt the "bad vid" at the end.

2. I need to try different TBC/copy guard removers before confirming #1. There are two more - one is the Sima (on loan) and the other is the 
ATV-8710 that I will have to buy.  This second one does not have as good track record removing the wavy lines as the Panasonic DMR-ES10. One online reviews say that it handles wavy lines very much like the TBC that the third party uses (DataVideo)

3. If #1 turns out to be correct, I may not be able to use a third party because all they can do is push a record button and cannot make adjustments.



Links: all copyguard removal tools degrade the picture. So using them for all source may be counter-productive.

Digital copyguard removal tool recs

stand alone DVD recorders may be better for bad quality video

but if you need to get an external TBC the ATV-8710 might work

morgandawn: (Vid Free! As Free As The Wind Blows...)

Currently, there are few fan-run streaming video sites that offer hosting for fanvids. Vidders.net, which is run off the Ning platform, offers members uploads at 15 fps. VidderTube, which is also run by the moderator of Vidders.net, offers members HD/30fps uploads for a modest annual fee.
 
Both Vidders.net and VidderTube are the only fan run alternatives to YouTube that are white listed for embedding at AO3.   Because they're low profile, they are able to offer YouTube vidders a haven for streaming fanvids that are  blocked on YouTube. Both networks are set up to archive and back up any content hosted on their network. 
 
 
Projects that Vidders.net/VidderTube have worked on this year:
1. Set up alternative streaming for a vidder whose vids had recently been blocked on YouTube. 
2. Set up a code to backup and/or import a vidder's entire YouTube channel to their network.
3. Offer YouTube vidders the ability to backup their channel video comments.
4. An intuitive cataloging system to filter vids by numerous criteria
5. The ability to distribute & view vids through smart TVs using Kodi/XMBC

Vidders.net current operating expenses is around $650 a year and is funded in most part by member support. Annual costs vary depending on the Ning service plan that is selected.

VidderTube is funded by memberships and the current annual cost is $250 (this cost increases with more streaming/downloads).
If you are interested in supporting Vidders.net's efforts by making a donation go here vidders.net/main/authorization/signUp (you can sign up using Google, Facebook, Twitter, or You Tube Social Logins as well as creating a Vidders.net account)

If you'd like to become a member of VidderTube to gain access to HD uploads, you can sign up for membership at Vidders.net as well by using the same link above.

 If you are designing an Excel database with creator names how do you handle entries where the creator is listed as "possibly Morgan Dawn"? 

I can think of several ways...

Creator:  Unknown-Morgan Dawn might be best.  That way if you sort, all the Unknown-Morgan Dawn works will still be listed together.  They won't be listed next to the confirmed Morgan Dawn works, but still searchable. If and when the ID is confirmed it could then be moved to "Morgan Dawn" or even updated to "Mary Sue Lamb". It could also handle multiple guesses: "Unknown-Morgan Dawn-Mary Sue Lamb

The idea is to leave "Unknown" for those were we have no clue, and keep the ones where we are guessing in another grouping.

The other way is to have a second column that would add a Y/N in  "Presumed Creator" but I don't like separating data. Plus one more cell to fill in is a pain.

Star Trek Voyager

It has been a long slog to get to season 4. I love Janeway but have found
so many of the episodes to be poorly written, directed and acted. Yet, I
love the characters: Kes and Neelix, B'elanna and Chakotay. The holographic
Doctor is unevenly written and shallow, and Tuvok seems to always be a
stand-in for "Insert Vulcan Plot Point Here' but I am warming to the two of
them. I am indifferent to Handsome Young Male Ingenues (TM) Harry and Tom
Paris.

If I had not see Jeri Ryan in other roles, I might have disliked 7 of 9
immediately. The obvious emphasis on her sexy body is off-putting, but
we're only 2 episodes in.

So I am still game to watch the next few years.

 I used "5 Calls" to leave messages for my Senators and Rep. If you cannot get through tomorrow, please try all week. If you cannot reach them, try faxing or tweeting.

This is the script I used

"My name is XXXX and I am a constituent.

We live in [CITY NAME]  (Zip Code XXXXX). I am calling in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that grants protected status to undocumented immigrant children brought into the US by parents or other adults.

On July 20th, Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) reintroduced the DREAM Act (S. 1615), a bipartisan bill which would grant legal status and a path to citizenship for DACA participants. In the House, Democrats have introduced a slightly more generous bill, the American Hope Act (H.R. 3591), which would also grant DACA recipients conditional legal status. Congress must quickly move to support and pass a legislative solution to protect our Dreamers.

I urge [NAME] to support these legislative solutions to protecting the DACA program and the hundreds of thousands of people who rely on it for access to jobs, education, and security.

Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.”

(at least on YouTube)

WHY does YouTube have to go through these purging cycles every few years? Why oh why? 

It started with Canada. Some of my vids couldn’t be played in Canada (despite filing a dispute for these TRANSFORMATIVE works). But, ironically if the music was by Canadians (Arcade Fire) - no problem! No copyright violation if you use Canadian music, only American. WTF?

Well, actually, most of my stuff has been blocked in Germany like forever. They don’t like fan music vids very much I’m guessing.

But now, a bunch of my vids are blocked all over - some I was sent an email about - some just got blocked without notification. And now, it’s not only for the music, but also for the visuals. That is new. And very odd seeing as NBC never had a problem with me using their footage in many of my fanvids for well over a year - and now suddenly they do. Yippee! No problem, no more SVU fanworks from me then I guess. Vids or otherwise (even though I can easily document that I’ve recruited viewers to the show through my works - their loss). There goes the new gifs/graphics I was going to share for Amanda Rollins appreciation week! Sorry guys. 

The fan vids I edit/create SHOULD be covered under fair use. They ARE transformative work. However, the Riverdale clips I’ve shared with you all recently on my channel all ARE NOT. So if I got that stuff blocked, I’d get it. I would not be upset in the slightest if I was asked to take them down. But so far so good with those. Weird, huh?

BOTTOM LINE: YouTube FUCKING SUCKS

And now all this does is create more work for me because I will actually have to get my website up and running again for distribution of my fan vids if I want them to have even half a chance of being seen.

But they won’t be on YouTube … so they won’t be. Ugh. It’s almost not worth the effort.

If you would like to see (or have/downlaod) a fanvid of mine that you can no longer access on YouTube or from my old archive, please just send me a message. I have them all in my personal cloud and can easily send you links.

If you read this far, thank you for listening to me rant.

Thank you for the heads up. VidderTube may be an alternative. In addition to offering embedded streaming on AO3, they also have the ability to import  your Youtube channel so you can back up your comments.  Since they are lower profile, they can keep your vids up longer.

The Media Fandom Oral History Project is in its 5th year. This  summer we were graced with a wonderful intern, Megan Genovese who was able to dedicate full time to the project. . Megan is returning to school and we would like to find 2-3 more interviewers to help interview those fans who were not able to schedule a slot with Megan over the summer. The interviews would be conducted over the phone using a dial in conference call system.

The commitment is modest - we're looking for someone to do 2 interviews a month over the phone. You would be responsible for contacting the fans, collecting the permission forms  and  scheduling a time to be interviewed. The interviews are 1-2 hrs long.

If interested, please email me at morgandawn @ gmail.com

Read more about the project here:  http://fanlore.org/wiki/Media_Fandom_Oral_History_Project

Please feel free to forward this info to anyone who is interested or link to this post.

We're also looking for fans willing to transcribe the summer interviews.

 I need help calculating upload speed times.

Our home connection uploads at 5 Mbs (bits).  In the fall a friend will have access to a 1 Gbs (bits) upload speed.

If I have around 1 TB(ytes) worth of data to upload, the math looks like this


1. Upload from MD's home = approximately 20 days (rounded up)
2. Upload from friend's location = 2-2 hrs

Now here's where it gets tricky. Some online backup servers cap the data flowing into their servers. Ex Sync.com caps it at
5 MB(ytes) or 40 M(bits)

In which case my math looks like this

1. Upload from MD's home = approximately 20 days (rounded up)
2. Upload from friend's location = 55-60 hrs (2+ days)

Did I get this correct?

I used this calculator

Letter sent today to Campbell’s Soup asking them to resign from the President’s Advisory Board. Please call/email/fax/tweet the CEOs of those companies who remain. Contact info here: http://www.elliott.org/company-contacts/

“Please resign from the White House Advisory Board

We love your soup. Who doesn’t? What is more American than Campbell’s soup?

What is less American than the embrace of white supremacy and racism? Or people who fail to denounce it or speak out against it? I hate political litmus tests - they are too often cheap and meaningless symbolic gestures. Except we apparently need these gestures when the White House employs white supremacists and has refused to speak out against horrific acts of domestic terrorism over and over. It was silent when two men were murdered in Portland while defending two children from a bigoted attack. It refused to to condemn the racially motivated murder of two men in Kansas. It failed to speak out against the bombing of a house of worship in Minnesota. And this weekend it argued that Americans need to “unite” with those who march under symbols of hate and who kill their fellow Americans.

I love your soup. But I love America more and will stand against anyone who silently continues to support this administration and their hateful and racist policies.

Silence Is Consent to the Forces of Fear, Anger, and Division
