Quick update  
Finally got the hook for my spn_heavymeta essay which is just as well since it's due tomorrow...

smhwpf? Betas will be winging their way back to you the moment I have the essay finished.

thedothatgirl? Did you get both sets of emails with links to the comicised pictures, or just the last one (with VM)? What other fandoms do you need for that? (And it's a matter of playing with the threshold settings to get the effect - I'll explain it by email once I've got the essay done).

Everyone else - and you two as well! - I'm having so much fun with the fanon facts meme (how much do I love the fact that you guys seem to be actively trying to stump me?! Clem? Puh-lease, that was easy!) so feel free to leave me other characters and I'll get to them asap (there are... two I think still to be done on there which I'll try to get done before lunch)

Next Asylum update will probably be tomorrow to be honest - but it'll be a biggie.

(and as if I didn't have enough to do... I just volunteered to take over the running of the Freshers' Fair this year since the person currently running it doesn't want anything to do with it anymore. Some of you who were at Asylum know what I'm planning - I just hope I get the go-ahead (and maybe even get some official promotional materials to use...))

Hey Sho

Email hell, I've had no emails other than the VM one. I am not sure you're getting mine either - just sent another one this morning.

Gnnnh! The other one had PSDs for the Doctor Who one, a Dean one and a Sam one... it's on MegaUpload somewhere but I've no clue of the link right now. I can get you them as soon as I get home tonight

Just replied to the email you sent this morning with my placings (completely spaced on the fact you were holiday bound tomorrow! Sorry! Although, if you can arrange another of those hugs I won't complain...)

And I just sent you three emails explaining the comic book effect. (Three because I forgot something and then realised one setting wasn't all that clearly explained)

ooh *hugs sho tightly* thanks mate much appreciated.

I hope it makes sense! If anything's not clear at all just let me know and I'll try to work it out.

Remind me at some point soon to get you the photo > sketch technique as well, it's a different way of doing it but is less 'comicy' so I didn't use it for this

I'm trying to hunt down email addresses for people who might be able to supply me with materials to use from the source. (she said being incredibly vague!)

I just got an email from the marketing coordinator in the library thanking me for volunteering and saying she was going to be looking at putting a team together in the next few days. *fingers crossed*!

I'm actually thinking that the person who doesn't want to do it will probably volunteer again because it looks good on the CV. I think what I need to do is have a decent pitch worked out in advance so that I can argue my case and show them how awesome it would be.

I'll have to get back into PR mode I think (which I haven't done since... 1996...) and prepare the whole thing, including possibly a montage of relevant clips to illustrate just how apt a hook it is. A helluva lot more apt than "I'm a Z-lister, get me out of here" which has been the hook for the last two years...

Surely they would rather do something different than the same thing again

I thought that last year, but they still went with the same tired idea - just because they had the camo net and inflatable palm tree. I kid you not!

(and parrots and snakes as well)

The whole thing actually came from one of my pitches three years ago as well. Lost was just about to start airing on Channel 4 and since I'd been watching it already I knew how big it was going to be so I pitched the show as a basis for the theme. It was not a good pitch and since no one had heard of the show they decided to take the idea of being in a jungle and go with that. *shakes head*

I almost dread to think what they might do with this particular pitch, I think that's why I have to make sure I get it right and as professional as possible before I go to the first meeting.

Thanks! I may just be emailing you once I figure out what I'll need.
