Shameless gloating.  
[personal profile] luzula made an awesome podfic of my Yuletide 2008 story Hunting High and Low, which is in the extremely popular Take on Me (music video) fandom. (She also, um, pointed out to me that A-ha is Norwegian. All this time I thought they were Swedish. It was the hair gel that misled me, I think. Who knew Norwegians could have such artfully tousled hair? Anyway, it's fixed now. Thank you twice, [personal profile] luzula! Truly, you are amazing.) People, you should download this, if for no other reason than to hear [personal profile] luzula talk. Her accent is lovely and peculiarly perfect for this story!

And some wonderful anonymous person wrote Pursuit (The Pay to Play Remix), a remix of my Yuletide 2008 story Pursuit, which is for the slightly larger The Fast and the Furious fandom. (Less hair gel than Take on Me, but way more NOS; that's how you can tell them apart.)

Apparently 2008 was a good vintage for Yuletides, is all I can say. I only wish I'd written a third story that year - maybe someone would be inspired to do, like, a multimedia three-dimensional collage of it.

And this is probably a good time to say that my stories are always open for podficcing and remixing and so on. I just ask that you email or message me a link to your creation, so I can gloat.

HA. I had an argument with my sister about this just the other day. And I WAS RIGHT.

*is smug*

Norwegian is correct. Most people in North America view a-ha as one-hit-wonders. They have nine studio albums to their credit. We have missed out.

They're currently on their 25th anniversary tour, which they're billing as their 'Ending On A High Note' farewell tour, so, anyone who might have wanted to see them play on these shores again, you just missed concerts in NYC, LA Chicago and Toronto (where I saw them).

If you think the vid for Take On Me is a good one, have a look at this one, Lifelines, from 2002. Then go here.

Luzula is one of the best podficcers out there; totally my podfic comfort voice. I'm listening to her even as we speak. :D

Well, it's not like Vin Diesel has much use for hair gel...
