Cutting back on screencapping so I deleted fading_tomorrow I might post some of my screencaps here or I might not. I don't know if anyone's been actually reading that comm anymore. I doubt it, what with LJ being so dead.

Also deleted my fanart community wraithwell for the same reason. I'll post any new fanart I make here instead.

I’ll be closing down my fansites/screenapping sites. I’m not sure which ones yet – I kinda want to close down all of them, really.

Reasons I won’t go into here, and also because they’re taking much of my energy (I’m a spoonie and have been for a few years now) and I feel like I want to try and use what energy I have for more creative pursuits such as writing fanfic and making fanart and non-Internet related creative stuff. Fansites are like a work obligation – I know people want and expect updates often and regularly and I feel like I must do that first before anything else or I’ll feel quilty – but then I don’t have any energy left for creative things. I still love doing fansites but I miss being able to do creative things terribly, and that dissatisfaction is bugging me. I kind of want the feeling of not having obligations to update and monitor sites – even if there’s nothing to update with, there’s always the change that the server will blow up or database problems or hacking or whatever. So while most of the time everything goes smoothy and doesn’t require action, it’s always in the back of my mind that anything and everything could blow up any minute. I can’t remember what not-worrying-about-that feels like.

I can’t stand Negan and this write up by forbes.com sums up all the reasons why.

I’ve always enjoyed TWD, even the not-so-good seasons had bits and pieces I liked but the current season and all the characters are in every way so tied up with Negan that the whole show is getting ruined. All the eps with Negan have been a chore to get through, and I’m having problems with this last one. For the first time ever I’m tempted to to just drop it, especially now that I just read that Jeffrey Dean Morgan has confirmed that Negan will be appearing in the next season too :/

I’m just so sad that TPTB had to go and ruin a good show 🙁 I’ll miss the characters (who are not Negan) and the world if I give up on it, but Negan annoys me so much.

Nothing much to report on the health front… my Crohn’s Disease symptoms vary wildly and has been doing that since March. I think it was the iron supplement that I have take that set it off after a little more peaceful period. I changed the brand but it didn’t help. Got a check-up coming up in later this month; curious if there’s anything alarming/must-take-action showing up in the blood panels.

Been going to a PPT (psycho-physical therapy) therapist for about two months now. She’s helping me find coping mechanisms and it’s been helpful. Also been going to a nutritionist with experience in inflammatory bowel diseases, apparently I should have been directed there back when I started having chronic bowel problems and erikoissairaanhoito (Special Health Care, the more advanced form of the basic health care which gets involved when the basic health care which is the first step can’t diagnose/treat etc. an ilness) got involved or when I got the Crohn’s Disease diagnosis back in 2012 at the latest, but they didn’t. Also been going there for about two months. So far it hasn’t helped with me the symptoms, but has helped me balance my nutrition better.

And now some random musings…

In the fall of 2015, I decided to wait until the season 2 of Gotham comes out on Bluray before watching it, like I did with season 1, and I’m so glad I did! It just gorgeous on Bluray 🙂 I like it fine but I’m don’t think I’d watch it if Morena Baccarin weren’t in it, Bluray or not. I tried to watch season 1 when it aired and couldn’t maintain interest, even though I think it’s good. There’s just something about it that doesn’t work for me unless I binge it.

Good thing autumn is almost here – it’s been sunny for almost all of last four weeks and I can’t take it anymore. I’ve started avoiding going out because I can’t deal with the unrelenting brightness anymore. I do grocery shopping once a week and my doctor’s appointments if I have any but that’s it.

Re-doing my fanfic site, I realized that all my main female characters have names ending with an “a”  – Angelina, Giulietta, Ella, Carolina, Safiyaah, Tahirah. Huh. Technically, the last two end in “ah” but in my mind it’s the same. What does this mean, if anything?

Trevor Jones’s score for The Last Of The Mohicans is my favorite music. I can happily have those nine tracks on repeat for hours and hours, and literally just listen and do nothing else. I have so many versions of them by various artists downloaded from Youtube it’s ridiculous.

Nutella is horribly, sickly sweet. Do people really love it like I’ve hearing for years? I bought my first jar ever yesterday because I wanted to try a chocolate cake recipe which uses it in the icing. Baked it today, haven’t tasted the cake yet but did taste the Nutella itself and yagh. Too damn sweet Good thing the icing also uses some cream to dilute it but I wonder what the final product tastes like. But unless this cake is amazing, this was the first and last Nutella I’ll ever buy.

That’s it from me for now…

There’s an interesting new service in the make: pilllowfort.io, supposedly combining all the best features of Tumblr/Reddit/Livejournal into one! It sounds like it could be awesome, I hope it’ll really comes into existence! It’s currently in early beta, from what I read.

Here’s their Tumblr with more info.

I’m trying to my self-hosted sites to a new host (the old one started having issues with stats as in showing zero used bandwidth – I know from WordPress and Coppermine stats that’s not true – and also various page links being broken in WHM/cPanel). I moved http://www.morena-baccarin.net first and updated name servers on Monday morning on Namecheap. I just checked and it’s still not resolving ;/ Usually it’s taken only like 30-90 minutes, over-night at the longest.  This did happen once before, but I can’t remember which domain and whether I had to had Namecheap and/or my host do something *head desk*

So I got a thing this afternoon that I got to go to, then I’ll see if I can’t figure what’s taking so long…

Also, the same thing seems to be happening with http://www.lucylawlesscentral.com

I’ve finished reuploading my The Mummy fansite, Fight Tomorrow. It has an awesome new URL http://www.the-mummy.net so please update your bookmarks ASAP! The old domain will continue to redirect until it expires.
