Projects - A little less than a happy high — LiveJournal
Autumn is coming, and though that has absolutely nothing to do with anything, I have a couple of projects brewing. Better still, I need your help.

First off, does anyone have either a juicer or a full-sized food processor they could lend me for an afternoon? If you want to come with, I'd gladly give you something to do (probably involving pointy things) and then some of the resulting potion. Yes, this project is filled with deliciousness.

Secondly, and this is going to be much weirder, can any of you help with the following? a) Webcam/DVR loans and/or recommendations, b) web-space from which to stream video content, c) costuming, d) nutrition/exercise, e) occasional writing, and f) general assistance putting it all together. Yes, I'll fill you in, but only if you ask and only on a limited basis. I'll go fully public with this when it looks like it's about ready to launch.

Webspace I can certainly help with, as long as you aren't expecting insane amounts of traffic. E-mail me with specifics. (Heck, don't you already have a folder on my server? we can point a domain there if that's what you're getting at...)

We also have a good-sized food processor, which I can't see prosicated balking at me lending to you, so let us know if you can't find an actual juicer.

And I'm totally curious about what you have going on, my e-mail's all ears.

Oh, and the rest of the points.
Happy to occasionally write if it's something I have any knowledge of.
Been doing the diet/exercize thing myself lately, so happy to chat about that as well.
And generally happy to be involved in general plans of any sort if I have the time to do so.

I'm entirely unsure of traffic, but I will run out an email as soon as I hear from a couple more people and have a moment.

Yes, I do. You're hosting images for me when I don't dump them onto flickr. ^^

What sort of costuming? I have old SCA garb, among other things.

e) and f) are also possible, depending on time commitment issues.

Costuming will largely consist of hunting down "like" things, the occasional construction of, and a bit of messing with fake facial hair and the like. Garb may work for a piece or two, but it's likely to be far more varied.

I imagine that e) will be more of the "short clip" variety, and f) will be "time and desire permitting."

I'm down with occasional writing, and I'm hoping to fix my sewing machine in the near future, so costuming would be fun (warning: I'd be in the learning phase, so I can't promise the speedy).

Given what I have in mind, neither speed nor volume is crucial. Heck, things can probably fall apart immediately after we're done with them.

I've got a bunch of nutrition training from cul-skoo and I'm fiddling with excercise in a mad attempt to escape a potato-shaped future...

Have a desire to trek out of Lexington/Bedford before the snow hits?

have juicer, working sewing machine, intense curiosity, and lots of free time.

You're on the list!

Since you're so mysterious, I have no idea how near or known one must to help out...

But I can offer writing services as well as some info on nutrition/exercise. Possibly general putting together assistance as well...but only you would know that. :)

I'm honestly not sure. Writing/coding/editing can be done remotely, as can random added bits. It'd be harder to be involved in filming in the Northeast, but if you've time and interest, I could use help.

I'm decidedely curious, and I do like to write! (I also love to edit)

I'm one hell of a costumer. Simple or elaborate, traditional or unusual. I love costuming, and I'd love to help! (And I have more raw materials just sitting around than most pro costumers.) I'm even quite skilled at costuming makeup, if that is needed.

Pop culture references doable? Any period off-limits? Can you do it on the cheap?

It might.

General assistance! I think that's about all I'm qualified for. Possibly also nutrition/exercise. But I'm interested and can offer whatever skills I have that you need. Bonus skills if you need someone to be cute and giggle.

I may need to enlist your mad kung fu skillz... and with the cute and giggle.

curious list of needs there. i think i might actually be able to see where they're all headed with the possible exception of d - though if the juicer is involved along with everything else, i'm seeing a jack lalane parody.

i myself have started fiddling with video (mostly in an effort to enhance my musical excursions), and as such would definitely help you out with with that end of things provided it's something that could work remotely. i want to integrate streaming audio/video into my own site i hope to relaunch someday soon, so at the very least, if i come across a good deal, i'll definitely let you know. also depending on what you're looking for, writing might be an option for me (even though i haven't put much time into it lately). costumes and nutrition definitely aren't on my list of strengths though.

The juicer/food processor are for the next iteration of peach wine. This is mostly separate from the other bit. I may need pointers/critique on video editing, so I'll keep you posted.
