The first Torchwood trailer on YouTube, as an apology to the people who watched for the trail I promised the other night, only to discover it was acually just a teaser - the logo flashing up. Sorry!

Elves In Tights - a vid starring Legolas and Haldir, to the sounds of the Men in Tights song. All together now - # We're men (manly men) We're men in tight (tight) tights... #

A quite interesting, slightly freaky, thought-provoking, yet probably untrue story from Slashdot about LARPing and reality. Slashdot's had a makeover and I can't figure out how the comments are working these days. Oh, well.

A good blog entry about Warning Signs of Tomorrow, with illustrations. I want to use some of them as icons (Motivation Hazard and Cognitive Hazard particularly) but I'm not sure if they're gankable...

And a letter in the Guardian from Terry Jones to George W, which is pretty good, and the comments as usual are astonishing.

Hopefully next week I'm going to see Slava's Snowshow at the King's - it looks brilliant! " 'SLAVA’S SNOWSHOW is to clowning what Cirque du Soleil is to the circus…' Variety " says the website. And I saw a bit of it on something I was subtitling sometime in the last...few months, and it looked fab. I need to get the day off though, cos I'm on late shifts next week. I was asked about the theatre trip last week, but somehow there was confusion, and I thought it was on near Christmas. Because of the snow, I should think. It definitely looks better than another panto with Elaine C Smith.

My parents saw the Snowshow a few years ago. They said it was absolutely fantastic.

It does look it. I was talking to the guy who booked the tix and he says he's seen it, but from the circle, and he thinks it'll be even better from the stalls. Yay!

About the Slashdot thing: were the two crashers total idiots?
Ok, maybe back then they wouldn't have heard of role-playing, but you'd think the first thing you'd try is to go back the way you came, ie, the place where the others all say you can't go. And surely you'd still be able to tell it was fundamentally a room in a country club. You'd find an electric socket and grab a wizard, and say 'Okay wise guy, tell me what this is in the wall.'

Well, yes. And I've never been in a LARP group (not that I've been in that many) where somebody wouldn't have felt sorry for them and come out of character and probably escorted them back to the wedding. (Probably me, mind you.)

Or there are creative ways of doing it IN character:

Suddenly notice any item of jewelry they're wearing, drop to your knees and cry 'It is the chosen one! He wears the ring of *made up name*! It is written that only he can go through the forbidden portal and live!'
