update on parallelsfic

I went ahead and put in some nominations for , with a specific eye toward variety: one Hong Kong source (The Bride with White Hair, an awesome old-school kung fu fantasy flick), one Korean (The Good, the Bad, the Weird, a crazy 1930s Western), one Indian (the Ramayana, because it’s a more manageable epic than the Mahabharata), and one Japanese (K-20: The Fiend With Twenty Faces, aka the alternate-history Art-Deco-punk superhero movie I keep meaning to make a post about). In general I tried to go with the theme of “crazy fun;” the only reason I nominated the Ramayana instead of Om Shanti Om was that somebody had already beaten me to the latter. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I still don’t know for sure if I’ll be participating; you’re required to offer four sources, and so far — apart from my own nominations — there’s only barely enough things listed that I feel I know well enough to write. But nominating isn’t a commitment to participate, so I figured why not.

Nominations are open until the 25th.

    I’d be happy to point out a few of the series that have been nominated and are also short enough to watch before the exchange starts! ;D

      Unfortunately, I just can’t afford the time. I have a book deadline at the end of July — I really shouldn’t even be considering the exchange — so I might be able to swing watching a couple of films that are in my queue already, but nothing more time-consuming than that.

    Just letting you know that I’ve added you. I’m here from the DWJ mailing list. I haven’t read any of your books yet, but I’ll soon rectify that. πŸ™‚

      Welcome! Glad to know my DWJ posts have been of interest to somebody. (That is, I presume those posts are what led you here.)

        Yeah, the two you’ve posted so far have been interesting. I liked both Wilkin’s Tooth and the Ogre Downstairs as a child (well, I still do), and contributed WT’s shortcomings to the short length. Knowing that they were two of the first published makes sense, though. DWJ definitely came into her stride later on.
