Our very last post


Tonight, in about five hours actually, we put EskimoKissProject to rest. I have been grasping for my feelings about this, and had hoped to put them into words, because it seems like this occasion should be marked in some Significant Way. But that didn’t feel right at all – I can’t explain how I’m going from relief to ecstasy to bereavement in the blink of an eye, and when I try to write anything Significant it just sounds false.

Woobie times

I was going to write a long self-indulgent navel gazing post about what it feels like to be involved in Eskimo Kiss Project again. About all the arguments for and against doing it that we’ve had with ourselves and with others. About how it felt like our bridges with the Show had been burned, even as the wavelength that we’d shared for years had been severed utterly. About how we were done, done, done… and honestly, so close to being done.

And then, how the minute we start up again, all that logic and bitterness and debate just flies out the window, and suddenly it feels like we’re making history again. Even if it means we're going to get our hearts broken very soon.

But then I realised I don’t have to write that because this song pretty much says it all:

And yes, there is so much going on these days, and it seems rather trivial to say the biggest news in my life has not been the London riots (which passed over my borough leaving just some broken windows and a few bank machines destroyed) or any of the almost unfathomable political crises taking place around the world (my credit rating is stronger than the US? Crazyskates!), but the changes in our fandom. But as trivial as it might seem, I have to accept that EKP’s been a major part of my life – both my fandom life and my real life – for too long now to just dismiss it as handily as I once thought. Especially when it can still touch me like it does. So until Lacuna perfects their spotless mind procedure, this is where I’m at!

[Insert witty title here]

Just a quickie update to say I'm still alive.

Oh ADL, how do you do it?

Antoine Langdouche is thick with fail today. I'm glad to see he's back -- last week didn't meet the level of pure stupid we've come to expect from him. I am massively overwhelmed with work (I'm not here, really!) so I'm just gonna sit back and see what you guys do with it. I can't wait!

(I'm also not rewatching this, no. And Igor's legs really aren't two metres long...)

More fairy magic pls

You guys have been working overtime sending out the sparkly vibes today. We're in desperate need of some more right now. Can everybody just close their eyes and chant I DO BELIEVE IN FAIRIES! I DO! I DO!!

Weekend update

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. Mine's been pretty fab. I had a great dinner and lots of good conversation last night with [info]deakat and [info]paraka. I really love being around people who live fandom, who are always thinking about how it works and how to make it grow -- not just the followers of a particular show or a genre, but the fandom world as a whole. I'd been debating writing something about what fandom means to me -- it's truly changed my life to find a community with so much talent given freely, motivated not by profit but (in the case of writers) by a real passion for storytelling, who create stuff at a level that often exceeds published writers, but who do it out of pure enjoyment and love. The whole topic has seemed such a daunting task, but after talking to [info]paraka last night those ideas are percolating. Even if I never write anything of it, helping make sense of it in my mind is a good thing, I think.

All that's been in light of EKP reaching SEVEN THOUSAND SUBSCRIBERS.

This is just an inconceivable number -- we're getting ever closer to filling the Ottawa Civic Centre! *cackles* Oh, how I would like to try that!

Now I'm getting ready to send off my latest writing and then do something fun like, oh, clip my cat's claws. I got my new futon cover (YAY!) and it looks AWESOME and I don't want it shredded like the last one was.

What an exciting life I lead.

My grumps of the day

Dear Annoying PM Person:

Thank you for your message, which requested, and I quote, "I was wondering if there was anyway I could get a copy of all the Roman and Deniz videos you have. I know there are hundreds and downloading them one by one is taking me forever. I was hoping there was an easier way. Please say you can help." I apologise for all the time it is taking you to right-click-save, it must be arduous! Let me just put aside the insane amount of work I should be doing -- my animals don't need to eat -- and burn discs of all 700 episodes for you. I'm happy to do it -- the hours spent uploading all these pales in comparison to the few seconds it takes you to d/l. Just wondering, would you like me to hand deliver them to you as well? When would be a good time for me to drop by? I would hate to inconvenience you!

Ever eager to please,

Dear Annoying Russian Dude:

It's great that you want to sub the DeRo story in Russian. Only when you upload our videos to your youtube account, and just call them "Russian subs" without actually changing our English subs, it kinda defeats the purpose. But thanks for later asking "where did you get english subs and maybe you can send me it or show me where i can get it." Thing is, we don't exactly get English subs. Maybe learning German and vidding would help?

Cheerfully reigniting the Cold War,

Dear Annoying Commenter:

I might take your latest annoying comment criticising Vanessa for not being "punk rock" more seriously if you didn't list Jared Leto's band as your favourite. Please call someone ugly now so we can block you.

Loving double-secret probation,

Announce to flounce?

I have a question for the flist. I know a lot of you are serial fans, like myself, who have participated in more than one fandom. I'm curious: when you left one fandom/pairing, did you just leave quietly? Or did you feel the need to notify the mods of your fandom, and the world at large, loudly and in great detail why you didn't want to continue?

May. 29th, 2010

Last post tonight. I mean it this time.

But I had to record this milestone:

I'm having a little trouble getting my head around the size of this number. That's... a LOT of people. What's even harder to get my head around is how many of you that I've grown to love, online and off, and how much you mean to me. And how I really can't imagine how my life would be without Eskimos in it. Seriously unsparkly, that's for damn sure.


So, my lovely hordes, I leave you with noserubs and many many bottles of prosecco. I'll return tomorrow with magic handwaves to erase your hangovers and embarrassing moments.

Fly-by giggle

Yes, yes, I know I'm really behind on that song meme. See, eighteen days is a long-term relationship for me. First I got all worried about it encroaching on my lifestyle and trying to change me, and then I started fretting that I wasn't good enough to pick the right songs, and finally I sabotaged it myself rather than going through an extended breakup. Same ol', same ol'.

And I know that I'm also behind on a RL update, but that's not happening today either. I've been in a staring contest with my client's work for the past hour now and one of us has to break.

But I did have to share two things that amuse:

One is that someone just PMed EKP and asked what frotting was. LOLOLOLOL!! I told her that we weren't up to tackling parental sex talks yet and to google. Oh, the world she'll discover!

The second is that Youtube has got me continually pegged as spam, which is annoying until they give me this:

Hope y'all are having a good day. OMG ALMOST FRIDAY!

Torn, so torn...

OMG YOU GUYS!! This was on RTL-Explosiv (a daily features/entertainment show in Germany) tonight.

I'm cringing into a tightly wound ball of squick here at how they cut this, and how they miss everything that the Eskimos are about. They're probably brokenhearted that the people who went to NYC weren't the ones who write, "OMG Roman so cute when he cries, DenDen most sexxxxy, DeRo 4EVAH!!!!!!!"

On the other hand, you people are LOVELY. So utterly lovely. *cuddles all of you*

We are still debating whether or not to translate it, as non-German speakers will probably appreciate it much more not knowing what's said. (You Germans will just have to suck it up and squick with us, sorry.)

*is dying at the thought of how filthy [info]wildepet's unwashed face is now*
