I know I haven't posted much in 2014. I've been reading a lot more than I've been writing, if that's any help! To try to get back into LJ, I'm reusing this meme from [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2. I am, however, apparently incapable of giving a single answer to most of the questions. Below a cut for length )

Except for the first one, I don't have much to say about these—just enjoy!

This five episode set of short videos was made to publicize a con, but I think it's funny and I can't even tell you where and when the con is. It's characters living in a magical world playing an RPG in our world: "Cubicles and Careers". I've linked to Episode 1; that links to Ep 2 and so on.

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal and the Superfluous Female Protagonist.

"Cat and Lynx Become Inseparable Friends".

"'Weird Al' Yankovic On Parody In The Age Of YouTube"—with clips from his new album, Mandatory Fun.

(Also: I love that I have a miscellaneous group of links but have at least one tag I've already created that fits each.)

In a recent episode of Castle (SPOILER ALERT FOR REALLY MINOR SPOILER), Castle and Beckett discover, to their horror, that they each think they have a song as a couple—but they've each identified a different one.

After watching this, of course, I told Brilliant Husband that I didn't think Beckett would be the sort to want a song. I mean, BH and I don't have a song. Right?

He said, "I thought it was 'What's That Blue Thing Doing There?' and I said, "But I thought it was 'Skullcrusher Mountain'!"

It's probably important that I tell you that I'm the one who keeps singing the refrain to "Skullcrusher Mountain," despite the fact that I think BH is smarter than I am. It's not him being creepy and patronizing, it's me being . . . oh, never mind.

(I would put in a link to Uncle Bonsai's "I Need a Theme Song" here if I could find one, but it's really hard to find their songs online.)

At least we amuse ourselves and each other.

For reasons I cannot now remember, I found myself telling Brilliant Husband what truly appalled me about the still from Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" video, and why I can't watch the video: "She looks like she's really naked! Sitting on some kind of wrecking ball! That can't be sanitary!"

I remembered that conversation just now, only somehow the voice saying my words sounded like Sheldon Cooper rather than me.

I think I need a break. Good thing the semester ends soon.

Jonathan Coulton has made videos! They're fairly simple, but cool—especially if you haven't heard these songs yet.

Jonathan Coulton's new album, Artificial Heart, is now on sale! You can buy digital only, digital +CD when the CD comes out (expected November), bonus level, or super-ridiculous-bonus level (where he's not even sure what all he's throwing in).

I'm listening again to the one song he had as an advance download: "Nemeses." I'll repeat what I asked Brilliant Husband the day I got it on free download:

How long until someone makes a Sherlock vid for this? I hear this song and I see scenes in my head. . . .

ETA: The album is not yet at iTunes or other online stores, though it should be soon. You can go to JoCo's site to buy it, read about it, buy other stuff, etc..

This video is years old by now, but it still makes me happy: ROFLMAO!, a machinima take on the Muppets' "Mahna Mahna". The latter, of course, always makes me happy (and has for even more years).

I can't find a way to embed this, but I can give you a link: "Perform This Way" by Weird Al. It's just the song, not an actual video.

NOTE: There is some text on the screen, but THE TEXT IS OUT OF DATE. Lady Gaga has approved the song; it will be released as a single and a video will be made. Proceeds will go to the Human Rights Campaign. See The Gaga Saga and then Gaga Update for the story direct from Weird Al's blog.

Oh, dear. The Sherlock obsession continues apace. Great new icon from [livejournal.com profile] ciudad . . . and then I found this vid. Well, someone had to do it.

Warnings: no food or drink while watching this. I mean it.
Spoilers for Sherlock—I'm afraid I can't remember which episodes, so I'd best say all.
Only a minute, and don't shut it down the moment the credits roll.

Benoit Mandelbrot died today at the age of 85. Brilliant Husband just came into my home office to utter the line that I've used as my subject title.

In honor of Mandelbrot, a video of the Jonathan Coulton song from which the line comes appears under the cut. The video, by one FlyByPC, uses the song as audio and shows a zoom into the Mandelbrot set as video. It's really cool.

Watch the video )

Well, it was really a date with Brilliant Husband, but Weird Al was there! We attended a Weird Al concert last night! Longtime friends will remember this entry, when I used the excuse of Weird Al's birthday in 2007 to post the story of my first Weird Al concert, where he sat in my lap. Yes, he sat in my lap (go read the old entry now; this one will still be here when you get back).

I'm sorry to say he didn't sit in my lap again, but he didn't sit in anyone else's lap either, so I had no major cause for jealousy. More detail from last night )
