The Multi-Fandom Postcard Exchange Community

I just joined the [community profile] multifandom_postcardxchng. If the description below sounds interesting to you, consider this an encouragement to check it out.

Here's a direct quotation from the community's profile on Dreamwidth:
The mission of the Multi-Fandom Postcard Exchange is to allow fans to anonymously send and receive postcards using us as an intermediary because we believe that small acts of kindness can have life-changing effects.

We aim to be no-stress: you find people with similar interests and write to as many or as few of those people as you’d like, as many times as you’d like, whenever you’d like. And to ensure that money is not an issue, you can join without sending a single postcard. There is no pressure to perform.

We especially want to reach out to lurkers. We recognize that lurkers often make up an enormous part of fandom and lurk for a variety of reasons. We welcome all lurkers to join and lurk about our member directory. Should something inspire you to un-lurk for a moment, you can do that and then go back to hiding in the void. We don’t mind at all!

We also recognize that many people may be experiencing (sometimes greater) feelings of isolation during the pandemic. We think our postcard exchange is useful because 1) it allows for low-stress interaction and 2) it gives us something physical to hold onto/squee over/smile about.

I voted!

Today I took my mail-in ballot to my local City Hall and put it in the official and guarded ballot drop-box. I had to stand in line just to drop off the ballot, but it was a short line...whereas the line for early in-person voting went 3/4ths of the way around the whole building. Inspiring to see so many citizens taking their civic responsibility so seriously.

And in honor of having voted today, two videos by social-justice songwriter-singer Roy Zimmerman of whom I am a big fan -- I've even contributed money to the cause of keeping him writing and singing for social justice (and he sent me a handwritten thank-you note via postal mail).

Slings & Arrows news

Copied from a post by fengirl88 who got it from the ATX Television Festival newsletter (and who notes that screening is at 6 pm CT, and it looks as if the pilot episode will only be available to watch live but the panel discussion will be available afterwards):

Join us on Sunday, October 18th as we revisit one of Canada's most-beloved (and cancelled-too-soon) exports.

We'll start by screening the pilot episode with Writer/Creator/Actor Susan Coyne, Writer/Creator/Producer Bob Martin, and Writer/Creator/Actor Mark McKinney LIVE in the YouTube chat. Normally we don't promote talking during TV, but we'll obviously make an exception!

Following the screening, Susan, Bob, and Mark will be joined by Actors Paul Gross, Martha Burns and Luke Kirby, for a conversation moderated by Emily Nussbaum of The New Yorker. Miss it and we might have to haunt you.

Make sure to tune in on our ATX TV YouTube channel!
