You have no idea how excited I am over this...

And even more excited about this!

Is it November 3rd yet? Is it too early to ask who wants to go with me? ;)

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have ONE volunteer reccer who signed up for August with this fandom:

* Steven Universe ([personal profile] juniperphoenix)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in August, it would of course be awesome if we had some more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccer has volunteered for September, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for August, September or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of July. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Fandom: Guardians of the Galaxy
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Peter Quill, Yondu Udonta
Content Notes/Warnings: some blood
Medium: digital
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: rej11 on Tumblr
Why this piece is awesome: Most of the pre-canon art about Peter and Yondu focuses on a really young Peter, so I like this one because Peter is in his mid-to-late teens. I love how this piece tells a whole story in one image, and the details are fantastic.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Wonder Woman
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: GiannaRoseH on DA
Why this piece is awesome: It's a marvellous strong portrait of Diana on the horse, from near the end of the movie, wrapped in a fur-trimmed cloak and looking every inch the warrior princess. Also I love the colours.

Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: digital
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Skidar on Tumblr (artist's tagging is somewhat haphazard, but most of their other fanart can be found under the skidar-art tag)
Why this piece is awesome: Since the new movie came out, there's been a ton of excellent art about kid!Peter and Yondu, so it was hard to pick one to start with! I went with this one because it's very cute and lively with wonderful details, and I could totally see them getting into a situation like this.

A night's sleep helps out a lot. The dreams were angsty but I think they resolved a bunch of issues. So, am feeling less losery.

In cheery news my pal in Berlin sent me chocolate and two of them are utterly delicious summer flavors of Ritter Sport: pink grapefruit and blackberry. Yum! There are two other Ritter Sports and they're nut filled and also look delicious. It's fun getting German chocolate from someone who knows me so well. I've already written her thank you card and will send it off later on today.

Today it's more job hunting while also burning the prayer candles hoping I get a kickass job. I know, I'm superstitious...and not very religious. But it worked several times before. Please let it work this time.

In a couple of weeks my mom and I are off to see the White Sox on a giveaway day. Hopefully we can get the retro jerseys! We're going to leave ultra early.

It sucks not having a car because it would make finding a job easier, I'd have more options. And I could visit my parents more easily. But I don't miss the taxes nor the parking tickets.

If I start feeling low today, which is most likely, I better be more proactive and do something like knit or color. Or...relearn some ukulele chords. I've let that go lax for so long that I might as well take the beginner course again. Happily, though, I have all the handouts and a beginner book to go to instead of shelling out quite a few bucks for a class.

My neighbor is moving to the South and gave me a bunch of framed prints and I have no idea where to hang them. I might do as some suggested and hang them close to the floor. I also have three prints that need framing so when I get a job those will go up high on the walls. Two of the prints are illustrations by Chad Sell. They're of contestants from RuPaul's Drag Race and they're gorgeous.
