This page is constitutively under construction, as I let my old homepage get hopelessly out of date. Mostly, I'm keeping it 'cause Earthlink really seems to want me to have an index page.
Some sites based on my current obsessions, and one obsession that's been toned down to an interest.
My Tommy Page site got mini-update in September of 2003.
My Tomorrow People site was last messed with in summer 2003. I've added pictures from the tp dinner and made some headway on the character guides. But Big Finish is still making CD audio plays faster than I can update for some reason. I like this "problem".
My fan-fiction page is updated far more frequently than this one, and updates are indexed by fandom, complete with link targets, at the top of the page. Fandoms covered currently include: Tomorrow People, Power Rangers (several incarnations), Animorphs, Sliders, seaQuest, and Mission: Genesis. I'm currently working on some fic for additional fandoms. Though I'm trying to convince myself to work on the original ideas kicking around in my head as well.
I've introduced a fanfic links page if you're interested.
Tons and tons, you haven't done much exploring yet, have you? Here's some links to get you started.
For my number one and longest runing obsession there's The Galactic Federation Communications Hub. TP Fandom on the net, by subject. It's all here, so I don't see a reason to look up more urls (though I have a few more bookmarks). There is one glaring exception to this: the PTB's have finally seen the light and granted the rights to the Original Series to Big Finish who are graciously creating really cool TP audio CDs. Also, the entire original series are available at Send it.com-- I've had nothing but good service from this company, unlike some others I've tried. There are two caveats to the DVD releases: these are Region 0 DVDs and are in PAL (UK) video format. A computer with a DVD-ROM drive can handle these easily, but your mileage may vary with a regular DVD player (unless it's multiregion). I've chosen to watch these DVDs on my iBook, now a very expensive Region 2 DVD player. If you don't want to cope with this, A&E is releasing the DVDs in Region 1, and they're available through the usual channels. The New Series has also been released in the UK, and Sendit should be taking preorders shortly. These are region 2 discs. Presumably, A&E will release the New Series on DVD as well. I can't decide if I want to wait or not. I should also send you to visit The Goddess of Fandom's page. If the pages don't make it blatently obvious how she earned that title, I don't know what will.
And then there's this little Buffy the Vampire Slayer obsession I have. Specifically, well.. that above statement should be obvious! (Unfortunately, the site it came from folded. No, B/A shippers, that is not a sign.) There are a couple of pages to send you to, but beware, some fanfic is for an adult audience (it is well marked, but maybe not until you get to the story page. Argh). My fanfic links page has more links, but here's where I like my favorites. Check out The Rabbit Hole which is also no longer being updated, but has some very cool stories (and other stuff) on there. I also recommend perusing the archive for Better Buffy Fics, but be aware this is an adult archive, though the adult stories are clearly marked.
Fanfiction.net. Fanfic from all sorts of genres, sources (not just TV, and movies, also books and comic books) -- and varying ranges of quality. Smaller archives with varying amounts of qc are linked elsewhere.
There are several fandoms I don't recommend even trying to sort through all the fanfic through on ff.n. Harry Potter probably has the some of the freakiest fanfic up there. If you want some good, solid HP fanfic without all the "nastier aspects of the stuff", try The Sugar Quill (click on Flourish and Blotts). The good news is it lacks adult and weirder 'shipper fic. The bad news is it's somewhat skewed towards Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny. For clues to the latest books, try JK Rowling's official page.
The Lurker's Guide to Babylon 5 is apparently still functional. Which is cool, since the series is coming out on DVD. For some reason, I'm more focused on the TP ones anyway (I figure B5 will be out for awhile.)
On the print side, one of my favorite authors is Diana Wynne Jones. Whose once upon a time co-opted but still official fan site in my opinion, eclipses the fancy-schmancy Harper Collins site.
Every once in awhile I will watch non-SF TV shows. Like Kidd Video or Veronica Mars.
Moxy Fruvous is one of the coolest bands around, or will be after they crawl out of their plothole.
Arrogant Worms are almost as cool.
Not that I've lost my love for the muisic of Deborah Gibson, Tommy Page or "Weird Al" Yankovic.
I'm a die hard MacAddict, and am hooked on the world's only computer soap. But the best source of Mac News these days is MacSurfer. They link to lots of cool Mac related (and sometimes general computing) news.
If you own any DVDs, I highly recommend you check for easter eggs.
This isn't so self-explanatory. These are bizarre, yet somehow cool, or just plain weird sites I've found in my wanderings through Yahoo!, friends sending me places, and other people's links sections. I'm more than happy to get urls you think belong here at email@example.com.
Think everybody and their brother has a Live Journal? You don't know the half of it. (Note all of these sites have spoilers for the current season of BtVS.) Buffy Summers as in Buffy the Vampire Slayer has one. As do Willow, Xander, and Dawn. Even Riley has a journal! (You can find many, many others by visiting the comments. It's kinda freaky.) But it's getting to be just a little too much. I mean, Willow and Tara's cat has one. As does Ben, who, frankly is supposed to be... well, y'know, dead? Not that this stopped anyone in the Jossverse. Including Joss.
Super Hero Generator Create your own superhero or team. It's weird all right.
And then there's The Science Fiction Cookbook. Not for the faint of heart.
I've also occaisionally stumbled across those weird quizzes on the 'net. I guess I've finally decided to share a few of them: warning may annoy dial-up connectins and AOL. And that page is gathering dust as I tend to throw them on my LiveJournal anyway. If I bother.
Someone please tell the creator of this site that Britney Spears and particle physics are unmixy things.
And while we're on the subject, Babylon 5 and South Park are not mixy things.
I hope my name will suffice. I'm Beth, but you can call me Tigger. I hold an MS in Molecular Biology and currently work in behavior of Drosophila melanogaster. All other information is classified/compartmentalized. (Yes, I have been watching too much Space: Above and Beyond lately. DVDs are fun!)
Only a customer of Earthlink, they're not affliated with this site. If you have a problem, please email me before you bug them, you'll find I'm quite agreeable. Keep in mind anything not under "What's Here" is not my site and therefore not my responsibility.
Last updated March 6, 2006, mostly by deleting dead links and biographical information it seemed to be unwise to put on the web.
