D.G & the O.Z

[001] In the next 100 days, we'll probably get an idea if things are going to get better or worse on LJ with the new management. The worst that can happen is that fandom jumps ship to a new site.

[002] Tin Man is a brand new mini series that began airing yesterday - it's the world of Oz (that is Wizard of Oz), reimagined. You can watch it here online on scifi.com
ETA: You can also go here tonight, to watch Tin Man live on your computer.

[003] In regards to The Golden Compass movie, I want an icon that says, "I am going to be happy and optimistic and you're just going to have to deal with it, damn it". People are either unbelievably cynical or insanely cheerful about it. I'd rather fall into the later category >__> Oh, and new icon to celebrate the movie!

[004] There are times when you want to be a sheep - when you want to like that show that everyone is going crazy over because it means when you squee, everyone is squeeing and squeeing as a group is infinitely more fun than as a single voice yelling through the internets about stuff nobody is aware of.
But for some reason, it's not happening. Enchanted kinda made me cringe. Pushing Daisies seems to be lacking something I can't put my finger on - it just does NOT seem amazing. And Gossip girl makes me run in the opposite direction. Bah.
And I get the feeling my wires must be crossed because these are shows/movies I would normally go for. I've watched all those Hallmark fairytale movies/mini series like 10th Kingdom and Jack & the bean stalk. I adored Incredibles which was a celebration of super heroes everywhere. But I'm just not feeling the love for these shows. And it seems like everyone else is on the other side of the fence :(

Tech stuff + layout code up for grabs

[001] Everyone seems to be sharing mixes of songs for the holiday season. I'd like to point out that you can upload your files to up to 10 file sharing sites in one go, via tinyload.com. The only catch is the file cannot be more than 100MB - which isn't a problem for songs :) No registration involved. You upload the file once, and it'll be hosted automatically on megaupload, mediafire, rapidshare, divshare, Amazon S3 etc. Super useful this time of the year...

[002] When it comes to online word processors, y'all have probably all heard of Zoho - but now Adobe has come out with Buzzword. IT IS BEYOND SEXY and is just, very shiny.

[003] Symbaloo is the ultimate startpage - completely customizable, no ads and pure prettiness. Whether looking for directions, movies or a calculator...this single page is incredibly useful.

[004] I did a quick colorscheme today that is up for grabs - it's tricolor (blue, red and green) and the first person who wants to use it on their lj gets the layout code :)

[005] ETA: I stopped watching Avatar after the end of Season 2 because I felt the writers had done some god awful things to Zuko that he did not deserve. Still, I tried Ep 1 of Season 3...but saw no reason to continue. Now however, I read this and y'know what? I think I will catch up on the show soon (*\o/*)

[006] Son of ETA: Scifi is playing Tin Man from the first part right now! Go watch! On your computer if you don't have the channel! EEE - can't wait for 8pm!
