If your fanvid has been blocked on YouTube and Vimeo, you can embed it into your WordPress site (get one for free) if the free Wordpress site allows you to install custom/3rd party plugins. From there you can then stream the vid stored on, Google Drive or Dropbox using a Wordpress Media Plugin.

Each of these storage sites has bandwidth limits (see discussion about Dropbox, and Google Drive) so you would use this only for vids that have been blocked on YouTube.

The name of the plugin is WP Cloud Plugins

You can compare the various plugins for, Google drive and Dropbox here

Greetings from the 4th annual TGIFemslash convention!

In addition to curating the official TGIF/F Femslash Vidshow, this year staff was also so kind as to let me play a little bonus vidshow last night put together of some vids that couldn't fit in the main show.  Here they are, with links

Oooh, the signal-boost thing works for AO3 collections, too. I edited this a bit to get rid of the "profile" and "join" links that got included because I also wanted the collection icon, but other than that, totally straightforward.

1. Today at lunch I tried cooking up some collard greens with olive oil and preserved lemon and red pepper flakes and a splash of vinho verde, and they were awesome.

2. My kid made me a card containing two whole sheets of stickers. Puppies with hearts. Kittens with hearts. Hearts with hearts. ♥

3. I got to see [personal profile] lomedet today (on my computer) and do some learning, and that was super-lovely and good for me.

4. I'm getting into a rhythm now -- I set out the bread flour and the sugar and my bread bowl on Thursday night, and Friday morning after I feed cat and boy I start my challah dough -- and this makes me happy.

5. Laundry is spinning and I am in cozy PJs sipping rosé, huzzah.

How are y'all?

I saw my friend Gayle F this weekend and she asked me for Luther fanvid recs. So I sent her several and this was her favorite. I agree. 

Snow day gratitudes

1. Being indoors and warm while the snow pours down outside.

2. Lamb shanks were on sale this morning, so they've been simmering all day in my slow cooker with broth seasoned with star anise, orange zest, some red wine vinegar, onions, and garlic. Just now I reduced some of the broth a bit, added medjool dates and za'atar, and ate lamb with all of the above over baked basmati rice. Oh man so good.

3. Kiddo has spent most of the day enjoying a Sword Art Online marathon, which has been fun for me too, because that's one of the anime options I enjoy as much as he does.

4. We bestirred ourselves to leave the house and attempted to go sledding down the block, and while the sledding was a mixed success (it is a gentle hill and still he fell off his sled a bunch) there was much giggling, which was really the point.

5. A friend sent me flowers yesterday, and they are brightening my dining room.

posted: Attack the Block Helped Set the Course for the Last Decade of SciFi Films


"In a world in which any person of color’s interaction with the authorities, no matter how minor or seemingly routine, has the potential to end in violence or death—or else in exposure to a dehumanizing system of law enforcement that feeds off of racial and economic inequalities (a less immediate but still destructive outcome)—we’re forced to question the standard ‘crime and punishment’ narrative the minute the alien’s attack disrupts the arrest and forces us (and Sam) to realize that there is more to the story. And more to Moses.

These interactions capture Attack the Block’s approach to moral quandaries. Science fiction has always used outrageous and supernatural situations to examine ethical assumptions, but rarely have films in the genre so directly addressed systemic racism and inequality. Before the invasion, Sam—a recent nursing school grad living in the block as she begins her career—saw little in common between herself and Moses, his friends, or even genial weed dealers Ron (Nick Frost) and Brewis (Luke Treadway)."
