Chase Elliott ran over a piece of debris that fell off Jeffrey Earnhardt’s car during tonight’s NASCAR Coke 600, causing his car to leak oil and catch on fire. Brad Keselowski was the unlucky driver who had nowhere to go, hitting the back of Elliott’s car so hard that Keselowski’s front end went under the rear of…

If there’s anybody who earned a conciliatory carton of milk at the Indianapolis 500, it was two-time Formula One champ and Indianapolis 500 rookie Fernando Alonso. Despite not taking the checkered flag, Alonso told reporters that he still didn’t miss taking part in the F1 Monaco Grand Prix.

Many Happy Returns of the Day ...

... to 
[personal profile] peoppenheimer , he of extraordinarily rare appearances and extraordinarily rarefied mathematical and philosophical abilities, who celebrated on May 22. May you continue to be all that you are; 

... to 
[personal profile] lydy , who had a birthday on May 24, and who I have not seen for far too long. I hope she's attending Wiscon, which I think would be a great follow up to London. If she's not there, I hope she's enjoying post-Londinium decompression. She's rather brilliant, independent, radical, occasionally mulish, and all of those things are eminently admirable. May the next year be fantastic for you!

... to 
[personal profile] sallymn , music lover, icon maker, fic writer, and genuinely nice person. I have many of your icons, I've enjoyed many of your musical recommendations - in fact, I enjoy interacting with you in many, many ways; I hope your birthday was a great one!

Gong Yu does not do things by halves

In today’s words, Gong Yu is struck by an instant crush on Xia Dong’s danger and competence and it’s /hilarious/. I mean, seriously, she’s nearly drooling (not that this is not a wholly appropriate response to Xia Dong). I think Nihuang may be about to hurt something, trying not to laugh out loud. 

As far as I can tell, Xia Dong is totally blase about it all. Probably she’s used to baby agents having smashing crushes on her and barely notices any more.

Today’s snippet:

Xia Dong gave her a wry grin, and Yu’s breath caught. “You’re part of the clan, now. No need to be so formal.”

Yu blushed deeper, cheeks hot, and clasped her hands tight, wetting her lips. “Xia Dong jie-jie,” she amended, obediently.

Xia Dong clapped her lightly on the shoulder. “Better. Come tell me about how the roads are; it looks like I’ll be headed a little south soon, myself.” She sank down cross-legged by a low table with a tea set sitting out, fluid and graceful, without a single second of wasted motion. Yu tried not to stare.

With the remake of It on the way, there’s no better time to look back at director Tommy Lee Wallace’s original 1990 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel, and that’s exactly what the filmmakers behind RoboDoc: The Creation Of RoboCop and You’re So Cool, Brewster! The Story Of Fright Night are planning to do—if they can raise enough money, that is. The team has launched an Indiegogo page to fund a new film project called Pennywise: The Story Of It, and they’re looking to raise about $25,000 to pay for the travel and production that the documentary will require.

This isn’t just a bunch of fans talking about It, though, as the Indiegogo page explains that they’ve lined up interviews with a whole bunch of people who worked on or appeared in the original miniseries, including Tommy Lee Wallace ...

Even though it’s one of the season’s central ongoing storylines, Dev and Francesca’s unfurling romance hasn’t been as well developed as some of the other narratives that make up this ambitious and varied season. “Amarsi Un Po’,” at least, develops Dev’s attraction to Francesca beyond surface-level details. There’s an energy he feels when he’s with her, and that energy comes through powerfully in each of their scenes together in this episode. But a lot of that comes from Aziz Ansari and Alessandra Mastronardi’s easy chemistry rather than strong writing. And Francesca is still a too thinly sketched character for the weight of their star-crossed love to really sink in.

But “Amarsi Un Po’” also crucially develops and contextualises Francesca’s attraction to Dev. With Dev, Francesca goes on adventures, does what she wants to do, lives a carefree and romantic life. Compare ...

The Little Hours

adaptation of a bit from the Decameron, set in a nunnery. raunchy, funny but low joke density. it was shot on location in Tuscany, which is stunning (and surprisingly Northwest-like). Aubrey Plaza and the writer/director did a q&a afterward. ([personal profile] sistawendy, it will be released in Seattle at the end of June.)

Balrog is Street Fighter V’s One Punch Man.

This is mostly for tracking purposes, because I know I went swimming more than twice since my last swimming tracking, but I can't remember when or how much I swam, sadly.

Right now my swimming record is 3km in 1h42m, which is 34mn to 1km. I swam this roughly keeping the same speed throughout, given that I had swam 2km in 1h08m. I think my next goal is going to get under 30mn for a 1km. (Meanwhile, Olympic swimmers swim 10km in under 2 hours.)

Time before that I did 2.7km in idk how much time. *squints* I think I did 2.6km the time before that, but I ain't counting it because I'm not sure. (I'm tracking less because of accuracy and more because it motivates me to make concrete progress towards a distant/big goal.)

I was going to go swimming today, but it was too bloody hot and I couldn't make myself. I may try to go one evening this week.

Past total: 27 850 / 585 689. Current total: 33 550 / 585 689.

I heard about this from [personal profile] independence1776: Apparently LJ has started suspending accounts that post links to non-LJ sites. There are also claims that posting a link even in a locked entry can get you suspended.

More here.

This is idiotic, because a lot of people (including me) like to share fun links with their friends. Are they trying to lose users? I intend to carry on as normal; if LJ suspends my account, I'll be annoyed for nostalgia reasons, but it's all backed up here on DW.
