From mercuryandrain: "I was wondering if you could do me a HUGE favor and plug the Support Stacie auction sometime this week in one of your linkspam posts? Stacie is fighting high stage III breast cancer without the help of health insurance. This coming weekend (April third through sixth) a multi-fandom fanfic auction is taking place - people will bid on their favorite authors, and the highest bidder gets a story tailor-made to their specifications. Over 100 authors are participating at last count, from Roswell, Twilight, Dr. Who, Gilmore Girls and Harry Potter among other fandoms. Her website is http://www.supportstacie.net, and the website where the auction will take place is http://www.majiksfanfic.com/phpbb. There is also an LJ comm dedicated to the cause: supportstacie."
cee_m has put up (with my blessing) some "Twilight Means Never Having to Say You're Kidding" t-shirts to raise money for prizes for the YA Lit track at Dragon*Con.
The Littlest Edward is famous! And I mentioned this the other day somewhere--Twitter?--but while we're here: Biker Barbie with pink chaps. Ya rly.
Also, I have to show you this, because it brought light and joy into my life: VAMPIRE CLOAKS FOR DOLLS OMG. THE ALL-BLACK ONE HAS A COLLAR LIKE A BATWING OR A SPIDERWEB OR SOME SHIT, LOOK AT THAT! OMFG A BLACK POET SHIRT, I CAN'T STAND IT. It's like what Bella would make Edward wear if she felt kinky or something.
Follow-up on that Joker figure: Turns out it's not a two-pack; it's one figure with two outfits and two heads, so you get both your Police Officer Joker and your Classic Oh My God He's Going to Explode My Cat Joker all in one. The price I heard was $175 or thereabouts, with the release coming sometime this summer (end of second quarter to beginning of third quarter, somewhere in there). Full gallery here (OMG LOOK AT HIS EVIL LITTLE SUSPENDERS), in which you can see "an interchangeable and new make-up Joker head featured with Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) and Translucent Iris."
Once again, ladies and gentlemen: that is a doll.
Doesn't seem to be a lot of movie news tonight, which is good, because that means I can get some work in before our power's cut off for six hours tomorrow (they're working on the lines). So, in case you didn't catch that--I may potentially be offline, in the dark, and unavailable from 8 am to 2 pm.
