Have you ever come out of the cinema saying "That's two hours of my life I'll never get back"? Read a book recently that made you want to throw it across the room? Did last night's TV make your brain bleed?

Get it off your chest and spare other people the pain. [community profile] anti_recs is the place to post your reviews of things you wish you'd left well alone, whether they jump gleefully aboard the fail bus, ought to have a trigger warning, or are just boring or incomprehensible. Crossposts and links to posts on your own journal welcome.

July Mini Prompts | Contact a Mod


The point of [community profile] poet_inspired is to celebrate creative contributions other than fiction writing. Through July, small prompts from the featured poet Yehuda Amichai will be posted to serve as inspiration for vids, fanmixes, podfic, fanart, icons, wallpapers, graphics, knitting patterns, photo collages, macaroni castles, picspams, meta, and more! If it's not fiction writing, we would love to see it featured on the comm.

Fandom and original contributions are equally welcome.
glinda: sound design geek (bbc fangirl)
[personal profile] glinda
[community profile] sound_design is a comm for sound designers, sound engineers, sound editors and sound artists whether professional, amateur or students to talk about sound. Whether that takes the form of film, television, animations, theatre or art installation. See a film with utterly awesome (or utterly appalling) sound? Learn a trick you just want to enthuse endlessly about or have a problem you could do with some suggestions to fix? This is the place for it.

Have a tumblr? Want to get more tumblr followers? Promote your tumblr at [community profile] tumblr_follow . You can post the link, a picture of your latests posts, and recommend other tumblrs to follow.


Not my comm but worth mentioning. DW has a [community profile] followfriday community. You can rec coms there as well as tagging your own posts with "followfriday" so that it shows up in the Latest page under that tag. This comm is also located at [livejournal.com profile] follow_friday

As all of my comms are about to come off hiatus, or already are, it might be a good time to promote them.

[community profile] musing_way: A laid back, easy comm to let your muses roam free. We do have claims, but the activity check is one prompt reply a month, with one warning before actual removal. Original characters, fanfiction muses, and OCs in fandom verses are all welcome. So is breaking the fourth wall. RP is welcome and encouraged, both as posts of their own, and in the threads. "Dressing Room style"

[community profile] muse_prompts: A community with no claims, no checks, just three sets of three prompts four times a month. If you link us to your work, it makes the mod happy. If not, the mod never knows. Original or fannish welcome.

[community profile] parlour_treats: Twice a month the mod will offer prompts here for exploring your muses. Prompts 'borrowed' from elsewhere are also welcome to be explored. Acts as a no-claims, quiet place to work on character voices. Original and fannish muses welcome.

[community profile] parthenon: Intended to be a claims table comm, themed by the Classical Greek muses. Each table has ten prompts, but the requirements vary. Open to fiction or art, though the tables may need a little tweaking for the artist in you. No pressure to complete your table. Original or fannish.

[community profile] the_fic_trader: Home to my challenges, including the Transformers Gift Exchange in June and Gen in January (ongoing now for the third year!). Other challenges welcome, if you need a pplace to host one!

[community profile] imlookingfor is, as the name implies, a community for people who are looking for something. It can be anything from a book, to a movie, specific DW communities, to a beta reader, and maybe new friends on DW (though [community profile] addme might be better for the last one).

Hey-o!

Do certain news channels make your blood pressure skyrocket? Do you often wonder how we will survive as a species after certain interviews with sources? Do you often fantasize about strangling that one reporter who hangs over your shoulder as you're trying to lay out their page? Do you forget about all your stress and bask in the glory of your byline?

If so, grab your favourite alcoholic drink and come hang out with us over [community profile] journalists! This is by no means a comprehensive list of what it means to be a journalist or one of the many other suckers dedicated professionals in this field.

The goal of [community profile] journalists is to, primarily, provide a space for the journalists here at DreamWidth for whatever they may need. However, the news doesn't get out there through the work of just a bunch of reporters (although, these days, it sure as sh-t feels like it), and would like to encourage those from other areas of the field to feel welcomed here too with their own insights and perspectives.

Possible community events: comment section drinking game!

Hip hip! Here's a second call for membership to a project of awesome! (first call was yelled in [community profile] lj_refugees... holla frienditos!)

So yes, this awesome project! What is it? It's [community profile] sauce. That's right, sauce. But not just any sauce. It's Awesome Sauce, a community for all things that rock our world. This can be anything from finding the likeness of Jesus in your plate of spaghetti, trending memes, pretty flowers, funny marquees, spectacular graffiti, the bizarre and slightly disturbing (but still strangely awesome for its own sake), crazy fashion, awesome art... seriously? The list doesn't end. Put it simply:

If it rocks your world DOUBLE COMPLETELY, frickin' post it. We crave awesome just as much as you crave to share it. That's what we want. That's what we're here for.

Sound good? Likey like? Want to help us build the best collection of awesome and win that Dreamwidth has to offer? Then hit up [community profile] sauce and start sharing that win!

oursin: Cod with aghast expression (kepler codfish)
[personal profile] oursin

Have you ever encountered a fictional character that the author intended you to think wonderful or sympathetic, and just found them really, really annoying? Not the ones they intended to be annoying, the ones they just assume you will love? The author thought they were creating a romantic, brooding, angsty hero but what comes over is a passive-aggressive pouter? or expects you to sympathise with their ever-so-sensitive heroine struggling against the vicissitudes of her existence when you can't stop thinking 'snap out of it and get a life'?

Don't you think these characters would be all the better for being repeatedly slapped around the chops with a wet codfish?

Come over and join [community profile] codswallopers!

Polls currently still open:
Wuther My Codfish (Wuthering Heights)
Pride and Codfish (Jane Austen characters)
Slap that cod (general section)
Death of a Codfish: the annoying detectives poll

And soliciting nominations for the 'Is this a codfish I see before me' Shakespearean character most in need of a wet codfish across the chops.

Aloha! One of these communities is not like the other, but all are very nice.

[community profile] classicfilm: Talking about about movies. Talking about actors. Talking about directors. Sharing classic-film-related events! You get the picture.

[community profile] fleecefiberyarn: Do you raise fiber animals, dye, spin, card, knit, etc.? Do you like to sell the fiber-related stuff you make? Do you like to buy fiber-related stuff? Well, you might want to check out this community. (Please do, and please post--it's been a little quiet!)

[community profile] dyeing: Fiber and fiber-related items, that is. Not so much one's own hair.

[community profile] spinning: Do you like to spin yarn? Do you want to learn how to spin yarn? Well, this is probably the community for you.

Mods: can we also have a tag for movies/film that isn't fandom-related? :)
