Links, Lots of Links
With 2012 just days away, I thought it might be nice to do a little housekeeping, while also seeing what I/we might have been missing out on in 2011.

To start, just a quick reminder that JBN is also on Twitter and Tumblr. I'm still getting a handle on this Tumblr thing, so, during the learning process, there's frequent reblogging.

As for Facebook, I continue to loathe it. Sorry, Facebook fans. There is a Jamie Bamber fan page already in existence on FB. If you really need a Jamie fix there, you can friend them. :)

Links! Two communities have done a great job of rebooting this year. First up, do you love Horatio and Archie? Have a fondness for characters in the Hornblower universe that aren't them? Then follow following_sea. This afternoon donnaimmaculata, posted some great 'Retribution' set photos.

And if you know me, you know I LOVE Lee Adama, Laura Roslin and the two of them in any situation together. ;) So, I was thrilled to see so much recent activity at laura_lee_bsg. My BSG OTP has renewed interest!

Now, this is where I turn to all of you for your help. What Jamie related fan communities and sites out there am I'm missing? The profile page could really use some updating. Comment away with your recommendations and I'll update this post as well as the profile page with your valuable intel.




In today's other Jamie related news, the 17th Precinct pilot has gone from bootleg to the big time to possible bu-bye if NBC's lawyers are put to work. The Hollywood Reporter has embedded a copy of the pilot on their website. Really! When one of the biggest entertainment sites around posts pirated copyrighted material, I really don't know what is becoming of the media.

io9 has also posted the pilot as well as a VERY positive recap/review. There's also positive feedback in the comments there as well as other sites around the web where the pilot has popped up this past week. I can't recall if or when a pilot has gotten quite the second wind this one has.

leeadama_daily! It's the best! Super busy with lots of thoughtful discussion nearly every day. scifishipper does a great job modding it.

AND it has the prettiest header in all of livejournal! I seriously get stuck and have to stare at his face for like 10 minutes every time I click thru to the comm.

No Lee/Kara recs? What kind of fan are you?! ;p
callmeonetrack From: callmeonetrack Date: December 30th, 2011 03:52 am (UTC) (Link Me)
Heh.
Well, no_takebacks of course, for daily Lee/Kara discussions, pictures, fic, silliness, etc. :)

Also:
reelpilots for Lee/Kara movie crossover fic and pilots_presents for seasonal Lee/Kara fic exchanges.

(Assuming you've got the 411 on SASA and Beyond_Insane already.)
asta77 From: asta77 Date: December 30th, 2011 04:05 am (UTC) (Link Me)
I know about Beyond_Insane, but SASA? Not sure about that abbreviation, though it kind of seems familiar.
callmeonetrack From: callmeonetrack Date: December 30th, 2011 04:17 am (UTC) (Link Me)
Really? sasa_hq is an older comm, like Beyond Insane it's defunct now except for fic postings.

*hugs*

I don't know what I'd do without my daily Lee! <3

That header is frakking gorgeous.

There's also iconic_lee a Icon stillness challenge community. I run challenges every two weeks and would love some new iconmakers. :)

ETA: Oh, and the_applecart which holds weekly fic writing challenges. It's brand new. We're only on Challenge 006. :) Some great Kara/Lee fics come out of it.

Also, karaleefic which is a catalogue of all K/L-related fic published each month (including comment fic and personal LJs).

A very passionate and vocal second wind, so far. SO MANY GREAT COMMENTS. It's a shame that it's so far down the line now that reworking/reviving it is not really an option, but man am I enjoying reading all these comments raking NBC over the coals. ;)

Here's another good link.

Also, I would like to congratulate the Tumblr user who made this, and award them ONE INTERNET:




*giggle*

This made me Laugh out Loud.
Physha1 From: Physha1 Date: January 3rd, 2012 03:07 am (UTC) (Link Me)
Love it. Could do without the 'burns, though.

Any hints on how to view this. I have tried all the links and the video is scrambled
asta77 From: asta77 Date: December 30th, 2011 12:38 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
For those outside the US, it might not be viewable. It's also possible there was too much traffic on the account causing a problem. I just tried the link and it played fine for me. You could also try a more direct link to the original posters (ddt73) account, here.

Awww thanks for the link! And thank you and zeegeekgirl for running such a friendly and welcoming comm :)

As for links, all mine are Hornblower related of course...Jamie makes regular appearances on pitselly's fabulous Hornblower tumblr and this Russian Hornblower comm is also worth keeping an eye on as they occasionally turn up pictures that don't appear elsewhere. And last but not least Scaryfangirl's website hosts a large collection of continuity pics from the series and several interviews with the cast from the original A&E website. Jamie's interviews are particularly loquacious!
asta77 From: asta77 Date: January 1st, 2012 04:33 am (UTC) (Link Me)
I've occasionally made discoveries via the Russian Hornblower site. ;) And, recently, we've had an upswing in Russian membership requests here and followers of the Twitter feed. One reason I keep hoping I get a chance to see Jamie at a con again is so I can say, "Do you know you're big in Russia?" :D
anamarya From: anamarya Date: January 1st, 2012 03:11 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
And he'll be able to make the same face that James Callis made when I mentioned where I'm from? Because let me tell you - it was priceless.
anteros_lmc From: anteros_lmc Date: January 2nd, 2012 01:09 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Aye, it's certainly worth checking out from time to time.

I keep hoping I get a chance to see Jamie at a con again is so I can say, "Do you know you're big in Russia?" :D
And knowing him he'd probably be able to reply with something terribly sweet and polite in Russian :)

Having now seen said pilot I have to ask, why wasn't it picked up?
asta77 From: asta77 Date: January 1st, 2012 04:22 am (UTC) (Link Me)
I think NBC's 2011-2012 schedule explains it: they're idiots. ;)

I know! I would think that on the tail of Harry Potter, the mystical qualities would have been marketable. And that cast! I cracked up when Joseph Adama came onscreen.
