Fic Tally (June 2018)

Well, for the first time since I've been posting fic to LJ/DW, I didn't post any fanfic, whether a short piece or the chapter of a longer one. Yep, a first for me!

Reasons? Most of my available writing time was spent with editing my profic, and there was almost constant chaos going on in RL. The last two weeks have been particularly crazy, and I was lucky to get the last of this round's edits done.

I did manage to write fanfic, even though none was posting-ready. I have 17 in the To Be Posted queue, so I was writing something! :)

I've got romance, action/adventure, space opera, summer fun, humor, and Halloween, to name a few genres. :)

Gah! No Halloween icons. Damn, 15 sure limits you. >:(

Due South Seasons 1 & 2 Trailers

Happy Canada Day, everyone! :)

What's more Canadian than the TV show, Due South? It debuted in 1994 and was a delightful mix of humorous and dramatic, not to mention slashy. ;) Yeah, so Benny's kissing a woman in this trailer. Compared to all the scenes with his American cop partner, Ray Vecchio (a running gag was all the times they were found in the Precinct closet together), a mere whimsy!

Anyway, this Canadian/American production was set in Chicago and filmed in Toronto and inspired its very own convention, RCW 139, held for several years in Toronto. Here's the trailers for Seasons 1 and 2. Enjoy! :)

Happy Canada Day to all my friends up North!


Hope it's not as hot up there as it is here. We're in the middle of a heat wave. If you've got cool weather, enjoy it!

Movie Trailer (The Manchurian Candidate)

Posted to vintage_ads:

The past few years the comm has been observing the Korean War on its anniversary date of its start, June 25th (1950). It's not officially scheduled this year but I wanted to mention it, and chose The Manchurian Candidate as my offering.

This 1962 film is a chilling take on the concept of brainwashing, which became known in the 1950s, especially during the Korean War. What were the Communists doing to our POWs, especially those choosing to stay in Communist North Korea and China?

This movie dramatizes that question with stand-out performances by Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, Janet Leigh, James Gregory, Leslie Parrish, and most notably, Angela Lansbury. Ms. Lansbury's performance was one of the most chilling ever seen on screen. She should have won an Oscar for this one!

Not many chuckles in this film (the level of violence is shocking for 1962) but if you watch it, pay particular attention to James Gregory's McCarthyesque character complaining about needing a firm number for his Communist witch hunt (not seen in the trailer). The next cut will make you laugh out loud. :)

The film was released on October 24, 1962, right in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis!

Weekend Event (Berlin): One, Two, Three

Posted on vintage_ads this morning:

Well, what's a tribute to Berlin without the movie One, Two, Three? :)

This 1961 film stars James Cagney at the top of his game (ironically, it was his last film before he came out of retirement for 1981'a Ragtime), snapping off dialogue with crackling energy. The Cold War one-liners were fast and furious as Coca-Cola's Man in Berlin angled for a prestigious promotion while dealing with his boss's daughter, who married a Communist! Zounds!

Anyway, the movie was filmed before and released after the Berlin Wall went up, so it was somewhat of an anachronism on its debut!
