Status Quo
Fandom: Tin Man (2007)
Characters/Pairings: Glitch/Cain, DG, Raw
Rating: T (Teen)
Summary: Five years on.
Notes: It is the five-year anniversary of the airing of "Tin Man," a mini-series that I can honestly say changed my life. It renewed my love for all things OZ, got me back into writing and though the fandom has crawled to a sad halt, I will never stop loving these characters and will look back on the work I've done with so much pride.

No one would ever believe him if he bothered to correct the popular assumption that Glitch was an apocalyptic disaster in the kitchen. )

Thanks to lionille for the heads-up, seems that LJ is sweeping up inactive accounts and as it's been a while since anything was said on this thing, HERE IS A THING!

RECS: TEXTS FROM OZ - one of kseda's awesome projects. I adore it and it makes me giggle endlessly.

So, we're watching the Toy Story movies on ABC Family tonight (nothing else on), and I keep seeing previews for a new show on ABC (or possibly ABC family, it's not clear) starting in October. I noticed something in all the previews that looked very, very familiar.

Check out the preview video on this website and tell me if you're seeing what I"m seeing - the black clad, black haired sword fighting figure approx. 1:35 in.

Is there something about his head that is familiar?
I was playing around on iTunes and found 5 podcast episodes of the Making of Tin Man that can be downloaded free. Which of course I'm doing. *grin* Of course, they're probably the same ones that were on the DVD set. But hey - they're free and they're on my computer. Insta-Tin Man love!
Today is the big Debbie Reynolds collection auction up in Beverly Hills (run by Profiles in History, the company featured in the SyFy channel show "Hollywood Treasures"). You can watch the auction live online here:, click on the "Live Now" flashing button on the right side. Included in the auction were three "Wizard of OZ" items:

Dorothy's blue dress/ivory blouse from the first two weeks of production (screen testing):
- Starting price: $60,000
- SOLD FOR: $910,000 (with commission, the buyer paid $1,120,000)

Original Arabian-style ruby slippers (screen test), changed when the original director left:

Guess it's still popular, huh? *gapes*

The Mumford & Sons concert last night was absolutely AMAZING. I adore that band to an obscene degree, even more so now having seen them live.

We went to the Railroad Revival Tour stop in San Pedro - literally, there are three bands (M&S, plus Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Old Crowe Medicine Show) traveling the country on a train. At various places along the train tracks, they stop and have a concert. The one we went to was in Ports o' Call (Long Beach shipping ports) and the stage was set up in a parking lot. It was a huge mass of humanity and beer and pot smoke - but despite that, it was incredible. The music from all the groups was fantastic and Mumford was just ~glorious~.

I cannot WAIT to get my new computer and vidding program and go NUTs with their songs and Tin Man. I've already go the two previously mentioned ones planned, and now Anndie wants me to do "Home" by Edward Sharpe et al. as a Tin Man vid, too.

We are pleased. ~*~squee~*~. Can't wait to see them again! *keeps an eye on concert calendars*
So, this is currently my newest favorite song (and favorite band):

(And yes, naturally my brain is all aflutter with Tin Man vidding ideas - especially for their song "Little Lion Man," which just screams Raw/Glitch.)

To continue the previous mention of how very lovely and gay OZ is - this is how "The Marvelous Land of OZ" ends (well, on the last page):

"I shall return with my friend the Tin Woodman," said the stuffed one, seriously. "We have decided never to be parted in the future."

\o/ CANON.

No, really. So, I'm in the process of reading all of the original L. Frank Baum OZ books (there are 15 'canon' books in his series). I'm on the second book, "The Marvelous Land of OZ," and while I knew going in that it was a giant Tin Woodman/Scarecrow love fest...WOW. No, really. This is possibly one of the gayest books ever written. There have been so many references to how much they love each other, their 'loving embrace' at meeting again...and Scarecrow keeps calling him "my dear Nick," which makes me giggle so much.

Today's favorite bit:

"My poor, poor friend!" said the Tin Woodman, taking up the Scarecrow's head and caressing it tenderly.

*howls with the homoerotic text of it all*

I stumbled upon this author via another fandom and was ~delighted~ to discover some previously unknown (to me) Cain/Glitch and Cain/Ambrose stories!! They are lovely finds and I'm so happy to share them!!

The author's FF.N name is JacksBoonie and here are the stories:

Waltz With Me Courageously

Apples to Apples

The Many Weather Patterns of Glitch and Ambrose

I hope these are also new to my other TM peeps! :D
So, we had an insanely busy weekend. The short version here, more detail below the cut with PICTURES!!!!!!

SATURDAY: College football, Oregon vs. USC down here in SoCal. As Anndie and I are Oregon alumni, we HAD to go to this one. Anndie went to the ESPN Gameday broadcast in the morning and we went to the game later together (I had no interest in Gameday, plus getting up at OMGDARKTHIRTY.) Football game was epic win (Oregon wins 53-32 or some such ridiculous thing).

SUNDAY: Hair (story below), Long Beach Comic-Con (OMG see below) and Disneyland Trick-or-Treat party (SO MUCH MORE BELOW.)

Pictures, stories, GLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITCH!!!!! )

As a loyal and loving fan of Alan Cumming, I naturally feel the need to watch anything and everything he's in (at least currently - some of the old indie movies freak me out). So, this leads me to occasionally taking a peek at "The Good Wife," which he is currently in.

Alan makes this show... )

So, I heard this today via Joe Flanigan's twitter:

"JoeFlanigan: Neal McDonough fired from ABC series 4 refusing to do sex scenes. He's a great actor and an acquaintance. Good 4 him 2 stick with principles"

Here's one of the many news stories that came out with the announcement, though there are plenty more to check out if you do a search:

I'm also pleased to see Joe, and no doubt many more fellow actors, showing support for Neal's decision.
