After various calamities, I want to see people! So: local (or visiting) fans are invited to come and be social at my house on Sunday, July 12, 1-6 p.m.

My house is in Berkeley (send email to ms at msilverstar.com if you need directions). There's plenty of parking, and it's one flat mile from BART, or we can pick you up.

Please come, bring your lovely selves and if possible, a little something snackish to share. RSVPs are good, including "maybe", but are not necessary.

I'm sick as a dog, so I have to back out of hosting our semi-traditional Bay Area second Sunday Moot Thing. If anyone else would like to have it at their house, that would be great.

Otherwise maybe later this month, or just hold off until March?

Dom's horror/comedy independent film, I Sell the Dead was at Slamdance, the low-rent adjunct of Sundance. So there are a ton of interviews and photos from Utah today, mostly in [livejournal.com profile] dom_media, and I especially direct your attention to the tight leather trousers ones :-) [livejournal.com profile] nothing_to_say has been very good to us tonight.

I Sell the Dead is coming to the SF Indiefest in Fabruary, and I read somewhere on their site that they might have some of the actors showing up, but who knows? I will try to keep checking, and update in various places if I find out. Let's see if we can get a fangirl contingent to go and squee together.

Who left a pair of salt and pepper grinders at the last moot? They look rather Alice-in-Wonderland-ish, nifty!

The mystery writer with the Italian policeman who loves his food is Donna Leon. Her Guido Brunetti is middle-aged and a bit conflicted, but his world is not completely corrupt, unlike Michael Dibdon's Aurelio Zen series.

Via [livejournal.com profile] hanarobi: video of dolphins blowing bubble rings and playing with them. JUST what I needed to see, cheered me right up.

And I just discovered a fabulous Doctor Who video, Handlebars, by [livejournal.com profile] flummery, to the song by Flobots. I don't know about their other songs, but that one really works for me. They're apparently "alternative hip-hop", so some rap with all kinds of music threaded through (they have a violinist!) and great lyrics. (I can't get their Flash-heavy site to load, and the guy on the front page looks like Elijah: I keep doing double-takes). They're also social activists and really quite darling. Many thanks to LofA for the link!

Must go work on Arwen costume now: kidlet is persistent.

We have a wedding to celebrate: Ruth and Nancy got married last Friday! So this moot we will have a little party to revel in the accomplishment.

So, this Sunday, Sept. 14, my house in Berkeley, 1 pm to 6ish, it will be lovely to see you all. You are all, (except Ruth and Nancy), invited to bring some snacks to share. Email me for directions, and I'm sure we can arrange some carpools or BART pickups.

See you then!
msilverstar: (viggo-dom we happy few)
I hope it will be back to foggy by Sunday. In any case, my house stays pretty cool until 5ish, so earlier will probably be better. We could always decamp to the back yard if it's too hot inside.

The particulars:
  • my house in Berkeley (send email to ms at msilverstar.com if you need directions)
  • plenty of parking, one flat mile from BART
  • 1 to 6ish on Sunday, July 13
  • bring your lovely selves and if possible, a little something snackish
See you then!

ETA: thanks to [livejournal.com profile] asknosecrets for telling me about my date mistake.
msilverstar: (drowning in splooge)
Teenboy has nearly gotten himself into Very Big Trouble and we're trying to deal with it this weekend. I'm sorry to be so flakey.
msilverstar: (dom lolly)
Next Northern California slashy fan meetup will NOT be this weekend, it will be next weekend. it looks like we're switching to the Second Sunday of the month, instead of the first, because for some weird reason, it seems easier for the hostess. If you need directions or details, please ask in comments or email - ms at msilverstar dot com. See you there!

ETA: wrong calendar, it's December 9th. Happy Hanukkah and thanks [livejournal.com profile] ribby.

P.S. More lotrips fic listings than you can shake a stick at: [livejournal.com profile] lotrips.

moot on!

Between [livejournal.com profile] slashababy matchups (43 participants, I'm getting there!) and my husband going out of town and a conference next week, and mrkinch's schedule, this weekend is no good for me.

Therefore, our SF Bay Area fandom slash moot will be Sunday, November 11th, at my place in Berkeley, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. or so. If you plan to bring food, please comment here, so we can keep track of our sweets and savories.

Please don't be shy, come and meet people! If you need directions, please email ms at msilverstar dot com or leave your email address as a comment here.

ETA: just a little shaking here, earthquake barely notable
msilverstar: (Default)
I'm still stressed about fleas. Therefore, if anyone's still interested, I'd love to meet up with you at a local restaurant.

How about Bacheeso's? I checked, it's now open on Sundays until 4:30, and has a huge buffet for under $10.

Please let me know if this works for you, or if everyone just wants to bag it until next month.
msilverstar: (elijah-pete hee!)
The Northern California fandom get-together will be next Sunday, in Oakland, at stewardess's place. October will be back at mine in Berkeley.

So: Slash Moot, Sunday, September 9, 2007, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. or so. If you need directions, please email ms at msilverstar dot com or leave your email address as a comment here. If you plan to bring food, please comment here, so we can keep track of our sweets and savories.

stewardess says: Thank goodness we are not meeting today, because it's fricking HOT.

msilverstar: (elijah-pete hee!)
This Sunday, August 5th, fandom friends and acquaintances are invited to meet at my house in Berkeley, 1ish to 6ish. Please bring a snack, nosh or treat to share.

There's generally group appreciation of certain actors (male and female), characters, writers, fic, sexual positions, and anything else that catches our fancy. Also ritual shaking of fists towards the 6A offices and speculating on what the hell they think they're doing.

We like new people with new stories, so please don't be shy! Send email to ms at msilverstar dot com for directions, phone number, requests to be picked up at BART, etc.

I looked at my messy house and [livejournal.com profile] stewardess looked at her metric ton of laundry, and she won (or lost).

Meetup at her place in Oakland on Sunday 1ish to 6ish.

If you haven't been before, please email me or her for directions.
msilverstar: (ian-billy kiss)

April is nigh upon us, the first Sunday being April 1, which is soon!

[livejournal.com profile] stewardess_lotr has offered to host, either April 1 or April 8. I can't make the 1st, as we're having an early Passover seder, but the 8th is Easter Sunday. Does anyone else have a preference?
msilverstar: (billy tease arse close)
cut for the comfort of those who wish they could be here )

And HBD to [livejournal.com profile] padawanhilary and [livejournal.com profile] juweldom -- such good writers and lovely people you both are!
msilverstar: (they say)
Lotrippers and other slashers welcome, I'm looking forward to seeing you all!

1 pm, Sunday the 4th, my house in central Berkeley -- email or comment for directions.
msilverstar: (elijah emo kid)
I can't host a meetup this Sunday, the family logistics are too complex. Should we postpone until next week, or next month?
