From this post
in Joe Mallozzi's blog:Question: ...anyway i was watching some oldies…ahh season 1 and i started wondering when did you guys realise that when exiting the stargate having to make the guys all frozen over would be too much…”
Answer: The day a faux frost-covered Richard Dean Anderson stumbled out of the gate and declared “This is going to get real old, real fast.”SGAwraithfodder
has some lovely reports with pics and vids up in her journal of the Cherry Hill Stargate Convention. I particularly loved the one of Jason Momoa
, in which he tells of how he shocked David Hewlett (and amused Joe Flanigan to no end) by mooning David from Joe's car, and how he's the gay guy to Joe's straight guy. Those who are going to Chevron 7.2
should be in for a treat.
* A couple of fic recs:'Aspects of Divinity (the world is my oyster)'
(NC-17, Rodney/John, AU)
This fic combines a couple of things I'm particularly fond of in Rodney/John fics: They hook up way before Antarctica, when they're just 18 and despite their differences they bond over so much. There's sensitive, melancholic, protective John, with a fondness for ferris wheels, and there's too intelligent for his age, grown up too quickly Rodney, who needs to be taught how to have fun. They are so meant to be together.'Not quite Benjamin Braddock'
(PG, John/Rodney, Rodney/Jennifer)
Did I mention they are meant to be? That kind of gives the outcome away, but avid McSheppers wouldn't read it otherwise, and avid McKellers would be disappointed if they did, so it's best to know up front imho. It's one of velocitygrass
's 'pining John and oblivious Rodney with a hopeful ending' fics that she does so well.Merlinmistful
has written a hilarious yet weirdly accurate spoof on the series so far
* Fic rec: 'Who's counting anyway'
There's mutual flirting and teasing until they get to a point where it's either act, explode or leave off altogether. Seeing as the fic is rated NC-17 it's clear where this is going, and I must say it includes a scene that fits in nicely with what I mentioned here
* Vidders on vidding.laurashapiro
have made a set of short documentaries about vidding according to vidders. I loved watching those geeky vidders, some of whom have made vids that I treasure, talk about why they do what they do. A short introduction with the link over here
* Ben and Josh slash themselves.
And then one of the comments in this post
reminded me of something baylorsr
pointed out three years ago: there's an Easter Egg on the region 1 version of the extended dvd of Pearl Harbor, that has a scene of Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett re-enacting the animal cracker scene from Armagaddon. The entry is now locked, but she was kind enough to send me the caps she'd made back then. You can see them here
(click 'slideshow' at the top right corner, then 'fast' at the bottom left corner and watch the cuteness).
