flummery: (sootball)
I am trying to do too much, basically simultaneously, and it's causing me to scatter. I can't even think straight these days for trying to just figure out what I'm supposed to be doing at any given moment, and I'm so far behind on everything, that if I think about it for more than 20 seconds, I panic. So, not very productive at the moment.

Things 1's computer decided to fry about a week after mine did. This meant about 2 1/2 weeks of just rebuilding computers. Mine, because WE MUST VID, and Thing 1's, because, you know, she'd have gone into withdrawal and battered me to death, or something violent. So Thing 1 brings over her Dell computer and the most challenging part of rebuilding it was... figuring out how to get the damn hard drive out. Dell clearly feels the need to have it's own little bizarre configuration, with screws where no screws should normally be. But after a lot of actual intense physical fighting to get parts into the machine (it always amazes me that with the yelling, and pushing, and squashing, and occasionally looking over and discovering the cat is sleeping on a vital part, that I never actually break the cards and chips and crap) the rest of the installation and OS upgrade went pretty smoothly. Thing 1 needed new harddrives and a new OS. I needed a new motherboard, so everything had to come out. Mine is still acting a little flaky at times, but I'm attributing it to Premiere's amazing abilities to crash anything that stands in its way.

Still, we're now so far behind in getting a vid ready for Vividcon, that I laugh scary little psycho laughs every few minutes. WE HAVE NO VID! AND WE ARE THE WORLD'S SLOWEST VIDDERS! PANIC!!!

And I owe 2,000 people feedback, and feel enormous random pangs of guilt all day long about this fact. Vid, stories, you name it.

And I'm absurdly far behind in projects for work, and freelance work. And most of the time, I can't gather the concentration to play spider solitaire.

And because I don't have enough to do, for some reason, I said "Hey, recapping Dead Zone sounds fun!" And it would be, I'm sure, if I had any idea what I was doing. Still, I love DZ too much to not try , and the reviews can be found over at Mediasharx. I wasn't at all thrilled with the first two, so I enlisted [livejournal.com profile] merryish on this last one as a beta, but she rewrote me so much she should probably be listed as co-author.

Random thoughts on Dead Zone that were too slashy or wandering for the Mediasharx review )

Hey, Thing 1! Bring ice cream.
