Jamie! In a tux!

1. callmeonetrack and I got into a discussion about switching POVs in fic. By that, I mean writing one scene from Character A's POV, then the next from Character B's, and so on. This tends to be prevalent in 'ship fic, and I've done it quite often in the past. Tara prefers this because of how it shows both sides of a story. I usually prefer to keep longer stories in one character's POV, because it's more challenging for *me* to try and show B's actions and attitudes through A's eyes. Switching POVs also presents other good challenges! Writers and readers: where do y'all stand?

2. Speaking of fandom... Tara has also posted photos from Jamie Bamber's guest-starring role in the Dollhouse season premiere. If you've ever wanted to see Jamie in a tuxedo, here's your chance! The pics are fairly spoilery for the episode's premise. While I'm usually a bit annoyed by The Joss Whedon Repertory Company -- how he tends to cast the same actors over and over -- because the meta yanks me out of the episode, I'll make an exception in this case. ;)

3. Two weeks ago I tried henna on my hair for the first time. I used two blocks of Lush's Caca Rouge and kept it on my hair for about an hour and a half. It was fairly bright for the first few days, but now it has almost entirely faded. Any tips for how to make it last longer? I'm curious if there are any shampoos that would work specifically for henna. And next time I'll definitely keep the goop on my hair for several more hours.

4. Linkspam:
-- The NYT has an article on The Moth as a storyteller launching pad. I love those podcasts. Plus, a piece on some bizarre men's hairstyles in NY.
-- Even if you've never seen Mad Men, check out this hilarious "spoiler report" video. Trust me on this one. :)
-- AdWeek talks about those creepy PalmPre commercials.
-- DaemonsTV has a cool interview with Michaela Conlin from Bones.
-- Check out a fascinating 360-degree view from the summit of Everest.
-- Supertremendos has a behind-the-scenes video of Sesame Street!
-- And here's a handy guide for how to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you.
