Leaving LJ

Hey All,

Just wanted to let you all know that I have decided to not renew my account with LiveJournal. I don't really use the site anymore. Feel free to look me up on Facebook, Google + and Twitter (@mlmower). Hope to see you all there!

Alive and kicking ass

 Hey All,

Longtime no post! How's everyone in LJ land? I have been spending most of my online social time on FB and Twitter, so poor LJ has been neglected. But that doesn't mean I've forgotten you all. I've just been super duper busy.

Most of you I've "met" in various fandoms (Veronica Mars, Buffy, Dollhouse, etc.), so I figured I'd post about my latest projects related to that aspect of my life. 

So this past September I organized the LARGEST BUFFY MUSICAL SING ALONG IN HISTORY. It took place on September 19th. Amber Benson came in for the event (actually, she came in for a book signing and I talked her into participating in the sing along). She was awesome. She re-enacted a scene from Buffy with a fan, and even sang along to herself to the delight of everyone! Here's a pic I took from "back stage."

After that event, I was asked to coordinate the media guests for a comic book convention. I told them I'd be happy to, which was a pretty naive thing to do considering I'd only been to one (very small) comic book convention and had little knowledge about what actually took place at them (read: I didn't know what the hell I was doing). Fortunately, the convention has a team of highly qualified convention convention organizers involved who got my back. So to date, we've managed to book a pretty cool (IMO) line-up of celebs for this con. Here's the line-up. All my favorite fandoms are represented: Veronica Mars (Jason Dohring & Francis Capra), Buffy (Nick Brendon), Heroes (Brea Grant & Francis Capra) and Dollhouse (Dichen Lachman). We have a few more guests that we haven't announced yet, but I promise they are pretty cool ones too. So, if any of you want to come to Comicpalooza and meet these fan-faves, be sure to let me know. I'd love to meet you in person.

File Sharing Recs

Does anyone know of any free file sharing sites that will allow me to email 6 or 7 videos approx. 10-20 minutes in length without the recipient having to subscribe to anything? Also, I only want the recipient to be able to watch the vids so it can't be YouTube or Veoh.

Hope you have a great day!

Also... I'm alive (obviously). Hurricane Ike wasn't as scary as I remembered Alicia being. Of course, we were much closer to the coast (and the eye) during Alicia. And I was 11 back then. This time we evacuated further inland to The Woodlands, but still got hit by the hurricane. My house survived just fine. We lost our fence and some trees during the hurricane, but that's about it. Could have been much worse. My family's bayhouse is still standing, but it's probably not going to make it. Too much water damage. *sigh* We'll know for sure in a week or two when we can get the insurance co. out to assess it. Kids don't go back to school until Sept. 29th.

I am leaving for a trip to new England with my mom, dad and sisters on Sept. 26th and will be back on Oct. 2nd. Then I go to Florida Oct. 9-12  to see the shuttle launch. My friend's husband is piloting this shuttle flight. It's his last trip to space, so they invited us to come see the lift off in person. My husband has to work so it'll just be me and the boys. We're staying near Cape Canaveral Wednesday and Thursday night. Friday and Saturday we'll be in Orlando. My son is dying to go to Gatorland, so we'll probably do that Friday.

How is everyone? Sorry I've been so absent lately.

Happy belated birthday to anyone on my friends list I may habe missed. Hope everyone is doing well.

Before I get into that... Happy Belated Birthday wowsugarpuss! Hope you had a great day.

So how am I getting to go to the Robert Plant & Alison Krauss concert GRATIS? I used what I like to call MARS-FU. I was sitting in traffic on Interstate 10 this morning (heading towards the teen camp) and was listening to Dean and Rog on 93.7fm. They do a weekly ticket give away contest called "Dead Person In the Envelope." Basically, they have a name of a dead person, you can call and ask one question to try to get a clue as to who it is, then the first caller to guess the right name gets the tix. When I started listening, the clues that had already been revealed were a) It's a female, b) she was a writer, c) she was British and d) she lived during WW2. Of course, I immediately thought about Agatha Christie. So I pulled out my trusty Sidekick and went to google Christie to find out exactly when she died. However, when the Google search page came up, the logo had been redesigned with Peter Rabbit in it to commemorate Beatrix Potter's birthday. Lightbulb went off in my head. I googled Beatrix Potter instead. Sure enough, she died in 1943 while WW2 was still raging. Bingo. So I called the radio station. And called and called and called and.... FINALLY GOT THROUGH! I got on the air and they asked me what my question was. I asked, "Did she write childrens books?" Their answer was "yes." I answered Beatrix Potter. FTW!!! I will be going to the concert on September 26th. I am SOOOOO excited!!
