flummery: (RENDER!)
Thing 2 here, putting out a call (okay plea) for suggestions for anime and cartoon vids that knocked your socks off!

I am VJing Saturday Morning Cartoons again at Vividcon this year, and could dearly use any suggestions of favorites that you would like to send my way. Or, if you would like to premiere a new vid during this show, that would be fab!

Please send your thousands of fantastic suggestions to me directly (flummery at el jay dot com) or reply to this post, or try out the snazzy Vividcon Suggestion Form.

A heads-up for anyone who might care -- Read or Die is airing this weekend on Cartoon Network. There's a midnight viewing on Saturday, the 23rd, and then a repeat at 3 a.m. Wicked Amp did a great vid for this OVA called "A Million Miles" that I got to see two years back at Vividcon -- it can be found online here: http://www.wicked-amp.com/videos/videos.htm

Who knows what editing liberties Cartoon Network might take with it, they're not all that trustworthy (why they even bothered to air Project Ako when they butchered every third scene/line is beyond me), but then, I can't think of all that much that would need to be edited from the show, especially given the times they're running it. (Also, I'll be interested in hearing the dubbed version, since I've previously seen the subtitled version).

But really, it's a lot of fun, for those of you who haven't seen it, mild spoilers here )

HELP! I find myself unexpectedly doing an Anime Vidshow for Vividcon this year. Since, you know, technically the deadline for creating your show playlist is already several days in the past, I could use a little help. Also? Since I'm mainly a dabbler in anime, and anime vids, it would probably be for the best if some kind soul could stop me from making a fool of myself.

Actually, I've already got several brilliant ones lined up, but I do need more. Suggestions? I'm finding multi-fandom vids to be very common, so I'd particularly love ones that focus on a single show, but really, it's not necessary, I just need good anime vids, and a location to download them from!

Yay, for two great things that will be *fantastic* together. I've known for over a year now that the next Miyazaki movie (Spirited Away, Totoro, etc.) was going be be based on a book by one of my favorite authors, Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle), but I keep forgetting, and remembering, and being thrilled all over again each time I remember. This week, I spotted a picture of the castle, and the fact that a very short trailer is online.

Links, and small spoilers )

Also on the anime front, Witch Hunter Robin (Cartoon Network, Adult Swim) is turning out to have been a good choice for the TiVo season pass. It was plodding along, practically enough, blah blah blah, a case an episode, introducing the characters -- and about 2-3 episodes ago, they'd decided they'd had *enough* of that, and got down to business. What a grim little universe! I have no idea what the hell is going on anymore. Much more enjoyable!

And on the... I can't figure out why I can't FIGURE THIS OUT, front... why the hell can't I find decent labelling software for my cds and dvds? I mean, it's reached the level of the absurd, and I'm really pretty good with computers, and I now have approximately 18,000 unlabelled round silvery objects and several dead sharpies. The CD Stomper label applier came with a version of Sure Thing which has a nice setup template all ready to go for the labels that came with it. But when I attempt to drag in an image, it screams about insufficient memory, and turning off placeholders. And I can see nothing. I bought some Avery labels, and that came with software... but not software which has a template for my stack of cd stomper labels, and the Avery labels were overly expensive shiny things, for a special occasion. I tried another version of Sure Thing. Didn't go so well. I tried multiple other programs. They either don't have the template, or won't drag in my images.

Can anyone recommend some damn software, already? I've got six different programs on my system at this point, and still, this huge, overflowing pile of unlabelled disks. It should not be this hard!
