Anonymous said: To Birich-Dasha, a really good post-s3 fic is "Sentenced" by SarahKnight on Ao3. I'm in the middle of it right now, great plotting, pacing and characterization (note to self, leave that Kudos!). And Lori, love the Columbus highlights post. I grew up in Worthington, went to OSU, and through your eyes could actually see myself maybe wanting to live in Cow-town again. :-)
Thanks for the rec!
i wAS WATCHING MYTHBUSTERS AND WHAT THWE HELL JUSYT HAPPENED
These men are scientists. Meaning they have spent years of advanced college in several fields.
I want you to think about that.
The pedant in me needs to point out that neither Jamie nor Adam are, in fact, scientists. They are both special-effects designers, in slightly different ways (Jamie specializing in robotics and engineered effects, Adam in model building). Neither of them ever studied science. Adam studied acting at the Tisch school (he was a child actor). Jamie’s only non-honorary degree is in…Russian linguistics.
This just goes to show that you don’t have to have a PhD to think rationally, apply scientific method, or use critical reasoning skills. And that it is possible to educate oneself about scientific principles. Science is not the vaunted bastion of the ultra-educated or mega-geniuses, as it is so often thought of. It is, or should be, accessible to everyone.
THAT is what Jamie and Adam have done. Brought science and the scientific method to a lot of people who wouldn’t otherwise have thought that science was something they could understand.
So my craft fair was kinda disappointing. But the good news is I have a ton of stock left that’ll go up on the Etsy store and I think some of y’all will like it
And I bought THIS AWESOME ARTS from the vendor across form me.
This is his Etsy store. He also does commissions. And he had cocktail trays and coasters and tons of awesome things.
fyi the post that’s going around captioned “emma watson’s response to the nude photo leak threats” (or any variation thereof) of her showing her breasts isn’t real
it’s a photoshop of this picture she did for mariano vivanco and by reblogging that post you’re violating her just as much as the rest of the creeps threatening to release nude pictures of her
Oh man this is really good to know.
(As you may have already heard, our fandom friend Mildredandbobbin has left Tumblr. She asked me to post her farewell message. If you would be so kind, will you please reblog this so that folks know she’s okay and still kickin’ out the sweetest fic. Thanks!)
Thank you Decadentwallpaper for letting me borrow a post :)
Goodbye lovelies! I’m taking a break from tumblr for the foreseeable future. I will keep visiting blogs here but I’m hoping by not having a dash it will curb my time wasting tendencies :)
You can find me on Livejournal as mildred-bobbin and I’m still on A03 as mildredandbobbin (fics are locked to members only), my email address is mildredandbobbin (at) hotmail (dot) com if you feel like dropping me a line.
Thanks for all your well-wishes, for support and love, for following, for reading, and for creating and sharing all the amazing art, gifs, pics, meta and stories.
lots of love
Lots of people are asking, so reblogging this.
Anonymous said: Are you a fan of Lynch's other work? Would you have liked to see Mulholland Dr. as a tv show as originally intended (possibly even a TP spin off). And... Have you ever seen the Psych episode Dual Spires?
Mulholland Drive is one of my favorite films of all time. I love it just as it is, I can’t really imagine it as a show. Lynch’s other work is hit or miss for me.
Anonymous said: Do you know what happened to mildredandbobbin? I see she's deleted her tumblr account. I hope she's okay. I *loved* her tumblr, went there daily to see what she'd posted, and she is already sorely missed by me.
Mildred left Tumblr to refocus on other things, as far as I know, and get away from the time suck. Which I get. She is still on LJ and AO3 - if you don’t want to miss out on future writing, I’d subscribe to her on AO3.
Anonymous said: Hi Lori - my friend is coming to Columbus today for the marathon tomorrow, and would appreciate any suggestions for cool things to do in town for a day! I remember you talking about awesome local things, but only found 3 posts in the "columbus" tag. She's staying in German Village; any ideas re: crafts, wine, coffee, nature, or culture would be much appreciated!
Absolutely! If she’s in German Village there’s a lot of our Cbus landmarks near her.
Food & Wine
If your friend has other questions or wants more recs - or hey, if she’s alone and wants a friend - give her my email, it’s madlori at gmail dot com. I love playing Cbus tour guide and I’d be happy to talk to her and help her plan an intinerary.
birich-dasha said: Dear MadLory, I really love your fanfiction and I trust you a lot in these matters, so could you, please, recommend me some post-series 3 Johnlock fanfics? I've just rewatched the whole series and I'm desperate for new long fics with a remarkable plot. Thank you!
Anything by SilentAuror is great. My favorite post-S3 fic is “Damage” by lifeonmars (marsdaydream here on tumblr). Anyone else have recs, chime in with a comment.
Anonymous said: Hi MadLori! How go your sewing and preparations for your craft fairs? Wishing you all the best!
My first craft fair since last year is on Sunday! I’ve been busting ass making things for it and I don’t have a final count, but I have roughly
I think I’m good! I have another fair on December 1st, so I’m half hoping I still have a goodish amount of stock left for it or it’ll be another marathon sewing six weeks till then.
