Summary: Fanny Whittington: the new hero of the left. The meteoric rise of politics' new superstar, from plucky orphan to Cabinet minister.

This one was pretty niche even by Yuletide standards! A delight to write and I'm happy that my recipient and the other Lashers seemed to enjoy it. :D

Hi everyone! It's been a bit quiet around here lately because I've been doing All The Things and not had huge amounts of spare time. This has resulted in both brain and body clumsiness in that I've just sent three emails to vidukon VJs where really there should have been one, and also I've already had two major pratfalls this week and sustained an exciting array of minor injuries. So, um. I'm on top of everything I swear!

Anyway, I break radio silence to bring your attention to two points:

Point the first being Vidukon! If you're thinking of coming now's a great time to signup - registration prices increase on March 17th. And if you're submitting a premiere the deadline for that is March 31st.

Also relating to Vidukon, [personal profile] purplefringe and I are in the final stages of putting together our Teams vidshow and are looking for a few extra vids as possibilities. Does anyone have recs for vids that focus on teams (ie not just ensembles but the relationships in the group) in the following fandoms: Star Trek (any), Buffyverse, Avatar: the Last Airbender, Lord of the Rings. We have lots of choose from already in lots of fandoms, but the more the merrier.


Point the second - some of you may recall me previously mentioning an awesome queer feminist burlesque & cabaret collective called Lashings of Ginger Beer Time. Well, a few months ago I joined them, and we are currently in the process of getting together a show to take to the Edinburgh Festival. In order to fund this, we're selling lots of awesome swag - as a Lashings fan far longer than a performer, I feel pretty confident in saying that the show's going to be awesome, as is the merchandise and media available to purchase!

Following the success of our first panto, Cinderella, we want to take our brand-spanking-new pantomime, Fanny Whittington, all the way up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival! That's right, folks. Soon, you will be able to enjoy all of Lashings' own brand of comedy, politics and malfunctioning props in panto form once more. Expect an emotional rollercoaster of highs and lows, tears and laughter, songs and silliness as we follow young Fanny and her pet rat, Basil, navigating their way through love, exploitation and possible puppetry.

Available swag includes zines, cookbooks, music, DVDs, tickets, and much more! And spreading the word to other interested parties is also hugely appreciated. :D
