the24thkey: (podfic <3)
So while I was wallowing in the anticipation of #ITPE reveals and preparing to write this post, meant to be only about my contribution to that exchange, I noticed that I had never gotten around to writing a post about two collabs I did this year. They were posted in March and April, respectively. It is now December. Yeeeeah. <.<

First up, there's Do You Want to Date My Avatar, a theatripod project I was really lucky to be part of. It's a Teen Wolf story about WoW and super funny, recorded by a bunch of super amazing people. We recorded this over Skype (which was a hilarious experience) and I am very much in awe of our director for putting everything together.

Then there's the awesomeness that is the Hockey RPF/SGA crossover notfic, which came to be in one of the most amazing twitter conversations I've ever had. Between [livejournal.com profile] fishpatrol , [personal profile] hananobira , [livejournal.com profile] reena_jenkins and myself we're also all podficcers, so the obvious thing to do was to record a podfic of our cracky headcanons. And that's how you end up with a summary like this:  "A story about not!Russians, the Atlantis Hockey League, accidental offworld marriages (of course) and the intergalactic sex appeal of the mullet."

Sometime this summer I was also asked to be part of a Slashreport hiatus episode about the Ace Attorney series, which was a great experience. But also kinda difficult. I'm pretty confident in my English and consider myself to be fluent, but it always takes me that one second longer to put my thoughts into words. Especially when I want to be concise because hey, people will be listening to this and I can't record retakes. ^^'''


And with that out of the way, let's get to the Informal Twitter Podfic Exchange!


 


Accidentally In Love by sociofemme (I Want To Go Home!, Rudy/Mike), recorded for [livejournal.com profile] fishpatrol. I was so happy and excited to have her as my recipient (I'm pretty sure we were matched because we were the only ones requesting Korman podfic XD) and decided on this story pretty fast because it's one of my  favourites in the fandom. It has Mike being oblivious and Rudy being...Rudy, with appearances by Vicky and Jeff and one character I will not name here for reasons of hilarity.

I started recording this while I had a cold, because I apparently wanted myself to suffer more than usual during editing.Turned out alright though.[personal profile] hananobira was my beta and is the reason why I finally know just how the hell 'crotchet' is pronounced. Seriously though, 'croshay'? English language, I'm side-eying you so hard.

The music I used for this is, you guessed it, Accidentally in Love by Counting Crows. As for the cover art, I had some trouble deciding on what the most important, recognizable and illustratable thing in the story was - I spent half a day at work google image searching stock pictures of water glasses and painkillers - but in the end I really liked the idea of using laundry symbols. There's something really nice about the simplicity of it, and I did my best to chose the most appropriate symbols. ;D

This is the longest podfic I'm posting this year, coming in at 01:42:50, and can be downloaded here at mediafire. Enjoy!

How's it going, people? :D Oh look, it's Valentine's day! Have some virtual hugs and chocolate, everyone! <3

Things have been happening! Let's start with the not-so-great and then continue on to the Awesomeness.

- WTF CLAMP? Did you just ruin my favorite of all Manga OTPs while killing off all your supporting cast at the same time? O.o I sure hope I read that wrong...

- Dear last episode of community: I didn't like you, despite the Troy&Abed cuteness. :(

- Did I mention yet that I have exams coming up? Really important exams? Because they're starting on the third of March and I'm going a bit crazy over here.

+ However, I have already made a list of stuff to do after they are over:

The title is: Things To Do Once My Exams Are Over FUCK YEAH )

Most of the items on this list were actually punctuated by emphatic 'FUCK YEAH's and 'LIKE A BOSS's. ^.~

+ Never mind xxxholic, Skip Beat is being amazing right now. <3 I can't wait for the next chapter!

+ I went to a party on Saturday and it was so much fun! I don't wear dresses or make-up to school, so it's always fun to see people surprised about my appearance (in a good way!) at a party. Also, I freaking love the dress I was wearing. <3

+ It's my birthday soon! Wheeeeeeeeee! \^o^/

+ I finished playing Apollo Justice and I really really loved it! The dramatic plot twists were actually surprising (OMGOMGLamiroir!) and the characters are so much fun! Klavier especially. :D I was sad that there was no Miles (or Maya or Pearl), though. :( Anyway, now I only need the first game of the series and Miles Edgeworth Investigations, which apparently only came out in the UK? I think?

+ After years (well, months) of dedicated searching for Gordon Korman's 'I want to go home' I have finally found it (Thank you, Internet!). Victory arms! \^o^/ It's really entertaining so far! Now that I actually know the source material, I love the characters even more. Oh boys. <3

+ Have I mentioned that it's my birthday soon? And that I'm going to Japan in April? :D Writing this post has put me in an insanely good mood. I hope everyone is happy as well - if not, tell me and I will link you to happy-making stuff! I'm in the mood to spread the cheer! <3

- The German release date for Scott Pilgrim vs. the world is set for January. This makes me sad. D: Thank god the same wasn't the case with Inception.

- What makes me happy, however, are Twitter shenanigans. Misha Collins shipping himself with Sarah Palin and being his usual, wonderful self (Did you see the Video he made for Random Acts? Hearts in my eyes <3), Joe Flanigan getting a Twitter which he uses mainly for posting about Guiness and ribbing David Hewlett...also, Dog contests for some reason.


- Only 3 weeks of summer break left - where did the other 3 go? I barely got any writing done, but at least I'm almost finished with my applications. Most of the time I play Ace Attorney though, because, as it turns out, the games aren't as hard to find as I thought. :D I'm on the last case of 'Justice for all' at the moment, and on Friday I might be able to get either the original 'Ace Attorney' or 'Apollo Justice'.

- Brian Williams as a guest on the Daily Show! Yay! I love it when he comes on the show. <3

- And a rec to end this post: Negotiating with Terrorists, a wonderful, hilarious Dean/Castiel fic, set after the Supernatural season finale. I listened to the podfic yesterday and was just grinning stupidly the whole time.

So. Guess who just spent the last days playing 'Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations' for the Nintendo DS and not doing much else? (Well, I had to sleep sometimes. And eat. And watch Sherlock.) To my defense, it's the first week of my summer break and I'm not up for much else because I'm sick. Also, the game was ridiculously cheap (10 Euros!!!).

So. Thoughts. )

But for now, I have a shiny new copy of Final Fantasy XII - I've heard it's not that good a game, but...it was also really, really cheap. And I'm a sucker for Final Fantasy. What can I say, I'm not that hard to please. ^^''

On another note, tomorrow is the day of my first private Japanese lesson, and in the evening I'm finally going to see Inception. Can't wait!
