I created this LJ as an popslash safe place away from my main LJ. Three years later, I still love popslash fandom, but these days its more in that "we'll always be friends" way. But I found so many cool people in popslash, I can't just let you guys escape -- I'm defriending here, and friending in my main LJ sherrold.

On an average day, only three or four of you are still talking about the boys -- even though when I created this LJ, every single one of you was chosen for being in popslash. We're so erratic and untrustworthy and fickle! But as I said in my other LJ -- I can't remember ever being in a fandom with a higher % of good stories to bad, or a lower amount of wank. I've had a blast here, and don't regret a minute of it. Not even band members having sex with each other when one of them may or may not have been a domesticated animal. Not even MPREG. Not even flying thousands of miles to see JC sing One Damn Song. It has been a blast.

Absinthe is done! Yay!

But I honestly can't imagine reading 64 parts on my computer. Any chance that someone has been compiling them into one long .htm or .doc file? I can't wait to read it!

Try Two -- does anyone have .avi source of "I Drive Myself Crazy?" I desperately need 5-15 seconds of the padded room moments from the video. Unfortunately, most of us have it saved as .mpgs coded to very small window sizes, and I need this full television sized.

Pretty Please? Anyone?

okay -- I admit it; I've never really understood Remixes. I tend not to like them in music, and I rarely like them in fanfic. They tend to be too slavishly like the original, so if I loved the original, the new one just seems like a reread, and if I didn't like the original, the remix isn't an improvement.

That said, We Invented The Remix: Back to the Streets is amazing. They aren't slavish copies, they're fascinatingly like and unlike their originals, with added side plots, outsider povs, new motivations, prequels, afterwards, you name it. Seriously, the challenge has an amazing hit/miss ratio. Go! Read!

flist, don't fail me now.

I'm trying to finish a mm vid for Vividcon, and I love to sneak PopSlash refs into FPS vids whenever possible, and this vid needs multiple shots of BSOs in insane asylums, so I think, Ta Da! I can use N'Sync in the padded room.

But can I find my copy? No friggin' way.

Is there anyone out there that can send me 5-15 seconds of full size video (.avi) from that video? Pick your favorite moments -- your chance to make sure your guy makes it into the vid...

Please? Pretty please?

Someone on nsync_fans is offering a bunch of old 'sync photo cards. Some cute, some dorky (natch!), but this one cracked me up -- created specificially for the Lamblovers?


halowrites just posted a picture that shows clearly that, not only is JC an alien (something most of us knew, but could never prove) but the type of alien he is.
<waits til you go look at her most recent post, and the cuttagged picture of Chris and JC.>
And what type is he? Vulcan. Am I right, or what? He looks like Spock's first cousin. Or no, more like T'Pol's half brother. Scary.

lilysaid has a great new story for JuC day (Ooh, which reminds me, I've got to change my icon!) that plays with magical realism, and compares then and now, and brings all five of them back together, and just generally made my heart glad.

You guys love me, right? Even those of you who have no idea who I am, and just friended me because I friended you? You Love Me. I can feel it.

And because of that love, you're all going to go, right now, and look at every place you have any popslash links -- on your rec page, whatever, and you're going to search for "sakeene.com", say in a link like http://www.sakeene.com/otpwallow.htm, and change it to http://suitableforframing.mediawood.net/otpwallow.htm.

Please? For the love? (And ha -- even if you don't, at least now I'll remember where I put the new link to her stuff...)

So, a lot of times I don't 'get' a story. Sometimes I decide it's the author's fault -- they're going out of their way to be obscure and/or confusing -- but more often I think it's my fault. I'm not clinically considered autistic or anything, but frequently I am the one standing at ground zero, saying plaintively, "what did I say?" as the friendships are exploding around me. And since I don't get a lot of real human interaction, I guess it's not all that weird that I don't get a lot of fictional interaction, either.

But just because I don't get a story, doesn't mean I didn't like it. I just reread deny honeymoon by Jae W, and I'm just as confused as I was by it last week, but I love the story. It's just...now that I've tried and failed to understand it, I want the "annotated for dummies" version of it. In fact, there are a bunch of fan stories that I wish had hidden hypertext links -- if the story makes sense to you, that's great; if it doesn't, click on the subtle link at the end, and get the full explanation. Needless to say, I loved the Director's Commentary meme that went around a few months ago, where authors went back and annotated one of their old stories.

Anybody else have stories that they like, but wished to hell they understood?

So, I see this random comment in a magazine: "In the upcoming musical film "Red Hiding Hood," she co-stars with 'NSYNC star Joey Fatone. 'I do rap music with Joey Fatone.'" but I go to imdb.com, and I don't see any upcoming movie with that title. What's up?

Also, Joey was seen at a fancy Superbowl party in Jacksonville. It made me wonder -- how much of Joey's disinterest in sports is fanon? (Not to say there aren't plenty of non-sports related reasons to be at a big expensive Superbowl party...)

In JC news: my TiVo just grabbed a Scooby Doo with JC's name on it -- how cute is that! And am I the only one feeling a little shiver of fear at the news that JC is hanging out at the openings for Fashion Week? Honey, you and 'high fashion' are not best friends. Trust me.

In a more perfect world, you bitches would have posted news about the other three, too -- if we can't get them all in once place, at least I'd like to hear that they're all active and causing trouble. If they knew we worried [g], do you think they'd make more of an effort to get themselves photographed regularly?

So, I'm watching zvi_likes_tv's efforts to sign people up for the remix with some worry. I can't sign up since my four years (!) as a popslash fan have overlapped with a near four-year hiatus from writing fanfic, and the rules say you have to have four popslash stories to enter. Sob.

I do -- finally -- have one ps story to my name: I entered SeSa, had a blast (as Merry told me I would -- yes, merryish is always right). and wrote a Timbertrick au called A Corporate Takeover with enormous amounts of help from the world's best beta, rosawestphalen.

flist, oh flist -- I love and hate you

After skip=125, I still have no idea what the H E L L people are alluding to. Except that it might be about Justin and Chris (ack!), and apparently has something to do with Bev.

Could someone please give me the one paragraph version of what we know so far, or a link. Please? Pretty Please?
