Previously, I've worked for two separate,
Earlier this month, all of the recappers from Recapist were let go. Our parent company, Buzznet, decided that they only wanted free content. Thus, they are now getting what they pay for.
For the time being, I'm striking out on my own, but I'm not completely alone! I can be found at this blog or through the awesomely spectacular midseasonsreplacements, who have agreed to let me play with some of their bandwidth. It's a very nice sandbox in which to play, so I'm happy to be on board.
There will be a few changes from the Recapist days. While working for that site (henceforth to be known as TSTSNBN -- The Site That Shall Not Be Named), I had only 48 hours to get the recap up. By the time I deducted sleeping, eating, proving to the rest of the world I wasn't kidnapped by ninjas, monkeys, or both, my RL job, and other day-to-day activities, that actually equalled only about 4-8 hours, instead of the full 48. From now on, I will give myself the full 48 hours. This means that, like in the old Fandom Talk days, the recaps will be up prior to the next episode (or eppesode, in the case of Numb3rs) airing.
This will give me enough time to pay extra-special attention to my favourite prop (the lime-green fluted well-lit bowl on Numb3rs), my fictional Welsh boyfriend (Ianto's MINE damnit!), my adorkable Doctor (Tennant, don't leave me!) and hide from the scary, scary dinosaurs. Or it will give me time to do randomly strange things never-before seen in a recap. (Don't ask.)
An Instacap will be posted after each episode / eppesode airs. I cannot guarantee their content, as it will be my initial reactions to everything, without editing. commenting will be disabled on the Instacaps as I don't want anyone to think I'm borrowing their ideas. In the past, I myself have been plagiarized, so I don't wish anyone to go through the same issue.
The Percolated Recap will be what people have come to expect from a full, well thought out recap.
Extra Froth is simply that. Whenever something tickles my fancy show-wise, I will write it up. Whatever the Extra Froth posts may contain, they're all in good fun.
Why these names? There were inspired by another great love of mine - coffee. Speaking of coffee, would anyone like to buy me one? I need caffeine for snarking. (Points to button on the side.)
