1) I've been posting various recs to [community profile] recs, but wanted to single out Stamina by runawaynun. It's an inspiring vid about female athletes with a really awesome set of notes about all the women in the video.

2) HT to Paula for these book related words, mostly because I think Angsticipation and Readgret could be used more widely.

3) The legal brief defending John Oliver has a wonderfully fun table of contents!

4) Of all the (many) stories of women being discriminated against, I think this one has to take the cake when it comes to the entertainment industry. And it was simply straight up misogyny, not even cloaked.

5) Some things seem like they ought to be connected to a fandom, even when they aren't. Case in point: "Apocalypse Dreams" by Tame Impala.

Hi all!

It's almost time to check in already! A mandatory check-in post will be made here at Dreamwidth on August 20th, and the check-in period will run until August 31st. If we don't hear from you during that time and cannot get in touch with you, we will assume you have dropped out and will post a pinch-hit. After that, the official low-penalty default deadline is September 10th.

We also wanted to let you know that if you're looking to make treats, you can see the list of requests here on AO3! There is also a list of Dear Equinox letters available.

There is detailed information about deadlines, check-ins, defaulting, and treats at our Rules & Guidelines page.

Thanks! We are excited to see what vids you create for our Based On Books theme!

Knowing What You're Doing

1) I'd be pretty amused if fanfic writers decided to take the same approach, but at least one Norwegian news outlet decided to make readers take a quiz on the content of the article they were trying to comment on before they could comment. If they had a Kudos button on that idea, I'd be trying to hammer it like a whack-a-mole. And it turns out it was a good idea for various reasons.

2) Our civilization will likely end because of "disenchanted teenage boys." They seem to be behind a lot of the fake news being spread online, (especially if we're looking at the commercial factory production of such news), harmful hacking and virus production, and, I learned thanks to Samantha Bee's last episode, the Trump election. The latter was not so much because they voted, though perhaps they did, but because there was a direct line between Steve Bannon's experience with video game players to the misinformation created for the Trump campaign.

3) I don't know how Parrot balances out the different elements that it collects data on, but I found quite a few surprises among top TV shows. Read more... )

4) I was on the Pew Research page looking up a report about demographic trends and was poking around their topic list. I found it notable that they haven't done any surveys related to TV specifically -- the few studies that touch on it are not about programming but news. Radio, similarly, has focused largely on podcasting and a bit on NPR.

The last study involving blogging was from 2010. And even then it was lumped into general internet use and has been superseded by studies on social media use. Read more... )

5) I came across an article which talked about declining products that Millennials are not embracing. Diamonds were one of them, though the article actually pointed to a drop in demand from China as the main culprit, as well as the growth of synthetic diamonds for jewelry, and the issue of conflict-free diamonds. Beer consumption is also showing a slight decline with other alcohol sales stalled. (Hard to believe that one given the incredible binge drinking that goes on.) But it was the issue of napkins I found most interesting. Read more... )

Vividcon 2017 Con Report

I'm back from Vividcon 2017 and I had a wonderful time! I was worried earlier in the year that this VVC would be really sad but thankfully I'm in a great mental state right now where pre-con I've been feeling super happy each day and that carried into the con where I tried to enjoy every moment of the con and savor all the good memories instead of being disappointed when things didn't go my way. It really helped make the con extra awesome and I had a great time getting to connect to my friends, watch vids, talk about vids and have a lot of fun.

I tried remembering everything as best I can but if I made any mistakes, feel free to correct me!

Vividcon 2017 Con Report )

Thank you to everyone who made my Vividcon so special! To me, Vividcon is a beautiful place where vidding is everything just like it is to me and where I can enjoy talking about vidding wherever I go as well and have amazing discussions about the craft. There is nothing that compares to watching premiering vids on the big screen in a crowd of people who *get* and *love* it and it brings an emotional high that is never replicated by watching on a smaller screen alone. I am SO happy to have Vividcon as a part of my life and this year I tried to appreciate each and every moment. I can't wait for next year and I look forward to a year filled with vidding growth as a vidder and as a community. Vividcon <3 Forever!

The 2 HP vids above that premiered at VVC were also part of a larger vid series I created over the last year that was set to the soundtrack of Disney's Fantasia. The vid series is 23 minutes in length in its entirety, but I also uploaded each vid from the series separately to youtube/AO3 so viewers could skip around or jump to a specific song/subject matter if they so desired.
