So I met Gillian Anderson at New York Comic Con. She has been one of my idols since I was a kid. When I went to take the photo with her, I said that I wish my mom was here to take the photo as well. She asked me where she was. I couldn’t reply with, she died four years ago, within the span of 2 seconds. I said, “um dead”The photographer snapped this photo. Immediately afterwards she lost her shit and ran laughing to the camera man. He offered to retake the photo but I insisted that I wanted it.The next day I went to get it signed by her. I went up to the table and said, “Hi again! I had to take this photo and get it signed!”She smiled and paused for a few seconds before writing something.She wrote “This is for Mom!”I thanked her and almost cried as I walked away.This has to be one of the best autographs I have ever gotten in my life.

Um, sorry if I'm bothering you, I just wanted to say that I love your writing! And, I (try to) write as well, and I know that the key is writing regardless, but I feel like all my ideas are hackneyed and unoriginal. I was just wondering if you felt like that ever, and, if so, how you overcome that feeling and write despite that?

gogglesque:

Hi! And thanks so much for saying! Little comments like that warm my heart for days, I’m not even kidding.

Basically? Yeah. I feel that way pretty much constantly; I think many, many of us do. Figuring out ways to fight it and reclaim the “fun” and “spontaneity” of writing is sort of a constant, ever-shifting struggle against mental backsliding and real life obstacles—powering through seems really unappealing when you’ve convinced yourself you’d rather eat glass. BUT. Good habits can be developed and writing can be made less scary, and once that happens we remember that we like this, that’s why we showed up in the first place! And then we despair again, etc., it’s very much a process. Luckily I think about this more or less constantly, so please enjoy some SUBJECTIVE OPINIONS ON THE MATTER:

  •  All writing is good writing. If you know you’re too down on your Thing to face it, like, write a limerick or email your mom or something and call it a victory. Not everything you try is going to go somewhere, but it does all add to your experience and repertoire. I try to write a little bit every day. (And then when I inevitably don’t manage to do that, I try not to get too mad at myself. The longer you’re away, the harder it feels to go back.)
  •  Do what interests you. I start a lot of my projects with an honest-to-god list of awesome shit. Figure out what you like in other stuff, and put that in yours. Avoid what bores you. Write to your strengths. Go out of order if you have to. You’re not following a rubric here, you are God.
  • Deadlines. The only times I’ve ever felt really kickass about my progress, I’ve deliberately put myself in a situation where I’m under pressure to produce a concrete Thing and have no time for second-guessing: NaNoWriMo, workshops and classes with regular due dates, anthologies I’ve promised myself to at least shoot for. (Waiting until the last minute and then panicking and doing the whole project without sleeping is, in theory, optional.) The Thing is not perfect; it will never be perfect. But it’s way better than what I would have otherwise, which is zero. Zero Thing.
  • Find friends who write (or art, or whatever). You’ll learn from each other, you’ll collaborate, you’ll compete, you’ll cheerlead, you’ll brainstorm, and you’ll talk each other down. There is nothing more valuable than a comrade who can, through the haze of your artistic identity crisis, remind you of all the good points of your Thing, the passion that led you to embark on it, and also to eat a sandwich dude it’ll make you feel at least 50% better. And when you find yourself giving this talk to someone else—”you’re okay, your story is better than you feel it is right now, this is totally doable”—you’ll realize it applies to you too.
  • Fake it till you make it. You can’t just will yourself confident, but you can stop abusing yourself out loud. Don’t apologize or try to disclaim your work before you show it to someone. If you’re looking for criticism, mention what you want help with, sure, but anything along the lines of “Please disregard this since I don’t know what I’m doing” is just destructive.

Pretty much, if I feel the Creeping Dreads, I try and remember one of the above things and either bully or coddle myself out of giving up. Does it always work? Hahaha of course not! Does it usually work? I wouldn’t even go that far! But the more it helps, the more it continues to help, and the more the positive reinforcement nourishes my brain, and the easier it gets, for a while.

Watch: NPH and Jason Segel reprise “The Confrontation" from ‘Les Mis’ on ‘Inside the Actor’s Studio’

This one is arguably better than the original from Megan Mullally’s talk show years ago.

They should have done the movie.

Dear Ben Acker & Ben Blacker, I hope you see this. I’m not sure if there is anything you can do but I wanted to make you aware of the tickets for TAHNY, May 10th being resold on Stub Hub for $143-$173 per ticket.

** TAH has always made the ticket price affordable and your fans greatly appreciate that**.

I hope you can find out from Town Hall/Ticketmaster who owns these seats in the Sections and Rows that are linked on this posting. And maybe not since it’s probably confidential information. One issue for me is that specific locations are not listed, just the entire Row. I’m sure there are many fans who would like to sit in that row. I don’t know all the New York laws on ticket re-sale but I think there must be a law about NOT posting generic locations and only being able to charge a certain percentage about the ticket price of $42.00.

I have re-sold TAH tickets in the past when a couple of friends couldn’t attend and only charged face value; I don’t even think I charged for postage. Hal and Paul have even re-blogged for me in the past. I just dislike it A LOT when this happens.

Please re-blog and like so TAH becomes aware that their tickets are being scalped big time.

Oh, you stay classy, scalpers. Everyone else: there are still MORE THAN ENOUGH tickets available for this show from the venue. You can find them
here on Ticketmaster
. DON’T BUY FROM SCALPERS.

Gogglesque and I are going to this!!

I believe a lot of conflict in the Wild West could have been avoided completely if cowboy architects had just made their towns big enough for everyone.

  • Holt is a self-made Batman type without any powers, but Jake and Boyle are CONVINCED that he’s at least psychic or can teleport or has super hearing or SOMETHING because he seems like he’s EVERYWHERE and always knows EVERYTHING.
  • Jake is a speedster with nonexistent impulse control.
  • Rosa SEEMS like she has super strength but also everyone’s too afraid to ask her if she actually has powers or what they are.
  • Boyle is Aquaman and is always indignantly insisting that there’s more to it than just TALKING TO FISH, OKAY, BUT ALSO FISH ARE PRETTY GREAT AND YOU’D ALL BE LUCKY TO BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH THEM
  • Terry is Wolverine but he prefers using his claws to sculpt beautiful artwork to using them as weapons.
  • Amy is Superman and in a crisis she’s always GREAT but outside of that she’s a tryhard mess who is always like “oh, Captain Holt, let me de-ice your car with my heat vision so you don’t have to go to the trouble of scraping it off!” and even though she does it ALL THE TIME with her own car she ends up overdoing it and setting his car on fire.
  • Everyone is like 95% sure Gina is actually a supervillain but she swears up and down she’s just a humble and totally human civilian administrator, but then she laughs really creepily right after, so nobody knows what the hell to think other than someday she’ll probably kill them all.

think about how often jake would offer to vibrate things though

Elizabeth as Scarlet Witch in Avengers 2 - Filming in Italy (Mar. 24th)

Glad to see she’s wearing the patented “Joss Whedon sexy waif” uniform. I was surprised he didn’t find a way to shoehorn it in last time.
