Just a couple of random things:
-- I now have 71 "plays" for my fanvid on Youtube! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeS1Cqj6ucI
) And believe it or not, not all those plays were me. :D Youtube also provides interesting statistics. Apparently my fanvid is most popular among males aged 13-17. (I'm guessing that's just among people who are logged in, though.) It's also most popular in the US, the UK, and Portugal. Hello there, you Portuguese Doctor/Sarah fan, whoever you are! *waves*
-- Calufrax is looking for more reccers, and I encourage everyone to sign up! It's nice to spread the fic-love around, and give some recognition to your favorite fics. All you have to do is join calufrax
(membership is open) and then sign up here
-- David Tennant has a slightly disturbing story about someone who accosted him in a gym shower (!) in order to get an autograph. The way he tells the story is hysterical, though. Go here to see it (start at 10:55): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-rVzs-5Hos
-- The above clip also has a really funny "say the next line from 'Much Ado About Nothing'" competition between David and Catherine. That's right at the beginning, so just hit "play." (Guess who wins?)
-- On a more serious note, honorh
has an amazing (and extremely well-written) in-person account of what it was like to go through the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. She was right in the thick of it -- the tsunami washed away her apartment minutes after she got out: http://blog.oregonlive.com/my-hillsboro/2011/04/personal_account_of_tsunami_and_aftermath_in_japan.html
I've already donated to Japan relief, but I'm going to see if I can donate again. I think it's going to be awhile before they recover from this.
-- Speaking of donating, the Just Giving site collecting donations for Cancer Research UK in memory of Elisabeth Sladen
is now well over 5,000 pounds. I would like to donate, but it costs me money to donate in British pounds. Anyone know if I can donate in U.S. dollars? Or should I donate to the American Cancer Society in her name instead?
