You’ve got a textbook case of Con Crave and we’ve got just what you need to calm it down: a boatload of everything that we…

As is their tradition, Marvel and Netflix didn’t just bring a clip of their latest show to their panel. They brought the whole first episode, and we have a spoiler-free review. Short version: It’s awesome.

In The Force Awakens, we learned Leia Organa had spent the 30 years since Return of the Jedi kicking ass and taking names as the head of the Resistance. But even though it’s been over two years since the movie, the mighty General has yet to get an action figure of her awesome, elder self. Hasbro’s finally decided to…

This year’s Game of Thrones Comic-Con panel was pretty unique. In past years, the season is usually over by July so the panel mainly looks back. This year, though, with the current season just starting, there wasn’t much the panel could talk about or show. So it became a pretty free-flowing, all-over-the-place…

ETA: And if anyone knows where on earth I can find an Angel S4 AU vid to Will Smith's "Black Suits Comin'" I will be eternally grateful. (I can't remember the vidder, which is making this difficult to Google.) Also a Buffy/Angel shipper vid to Darren Hayes' "Insatiable," likewise apparently impossible to Google without the vidder's name.

I have gotten out of the habit of chasing down fan vids and would like to download some to my laptop for enjoyment purposes. I find them to be a lovely pick-me-up--they don't necessarily have to be cheerful vids. But I probably can't deal with extreme gore or realistic violence (I've seen half an extremely well done Hannibal vid that I had to nope out of because I am chicken).

Some vids already in my collection that I really like, to give you an idea (in no particular order):
- [personal profile] bironic's "Starships"
- bopradar's "I Kissed a Girl"
- Lithium Doll's "All These Things"
- [personal profile] laurashapiro's "Ing"
- [personal profile] giandujakiss's "A Charming Man"
- obsessive24's "Cuckoo" and "Remember the Name"
- [personal profile] shati's "Hope on Fire"
- sisabet's "Cowboy" and "Two Words"

Fandoms I especially like watching/or have some clue about:
- Buffyverse
- Firefly
- I like the visuals of Game of Thrones although I've only watched one episode (have read most of the extant books, though)
- Leverage
- Arrow
- The Good Place
- recent Star Wars
- The Great Queen Seondeok
- Suits
- The Good Wife

That being said, if the vid can be understood without having seen the show, I'm happy to watch it. :)

The Defenders have taken over Comic-Con in a big way Friday evening giving us teasers for Punisher, a taste of what’s to come in Iron Fist, and even for fans attending the panel, a sneak peak of Defenders’ first episode. But for us at home, we get this glorious new trailer to revel in, and it’s so, so good.

The “Danger Zone” is about to get a whole lot more tropical. FX revealed at San Diego Comic-Con that season nine of Archer will be subtitled Danger Island, taking place on a remote beach in the South Pacific in 1939, where Sterling will be an eyepatch-wearing seaplane pilot. This sounds fantastic.

Oh good. Back to song topics that don't make me want to rip my hair out.

Had to stop and think about this one, because "love the voice" is not high on my priority lists for songs I enjoy most. But for a long time, I listed my favorite type of music as "anything with a baritone voice and acoustic guitar."

What You Need | Dance Magic | I'm on Fire | Love Is Chemical | Holly Holy | Wherefore and Why | Stay Young | The Warrior | Rainy Days & Mondays | Delta Dawn | It's So Easy

And one where the vocals are so pretty, I almost forget that I love the lyrics, too )

Zombie stories almost always have the same end game: Either humanity finds a cure, or everyone dies. In Friday’s Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic-Con, franchise creator Robert Kirkman said definitely his show will never, ever, look for a solution to the undead apocalypse.

Like any superhero movie worth its salt, Big Hero 6 was never a story about how a bunch of kids and their overprotective robo-friend saved the day using their special abilities, but rather about how the only superpowers a person really needs are friendship and teamwork.From the looks of this new clip from Disney XD’s…

The world of comics has been without giant, burly scifi soldiers carving bloody messes into alien hordes with their chainsaw guns for far too long since Wildstorm’s Gears of War comic came to an end in 2012. But good news for COG fans: the series is making a triumphant, gory return thanks to IDW.

The Game of Thrones panel at San Diego Comic-Con wasn’t too big on the surprises and shocks—after all, we’re already in the midst of season seven. However, a sneak peek at future episodes did bring two characters together—and combined, they’ll have the power to change the world.

The third season finale of CW’s iZombie changed the game—and basically the entire world. Humans know about zombies now, and (New) Seattle will be the testing grounds for whether the two groups can live—and unlive, I guess—side-by-side.

I haven't quite reached peak asshole yet, but I feel like if this were a Disney movie, you'd be able to hear the opening strings of my villain song right about now. (Cause: heat, sleep deprivation and people telling me what the fuck to do. NO. FUCK YOU.)


Somewhere around the mid-afternoon, I started being interested in Critical Role again and got through an hour of podcast in the rest of the afternoon! This is much slower than I was going before the brainwipe hit, but it's also much faster than me taking over a week to get through the previous episode (that was ep 62, fyi). So I guess there's that.


In happier news, we are apparently fucking finally a Kaamelott movie! :D Time for a rewatch, me thinks.

The USS Constitution, the oldest commissioned warship in the world (first launched in 1797), has been restored. There's a pretty interesting article on the restoration in today's Boston Globe, with photographs and diagrams. (So that's where the orlop deck is!)

Link: A look inside the USS Constitution’s restoration. (Note: the Boston Globe has a paywall, but I believe that non-subscribers can read up to five articles for free.)
