Hurry, we must Tumble it!

So, Sleepy Hollow ended, certainly for the season, possibly forever. And I can't talk about it, because I have no idea where the rest of you are up to. Suffice to say that, after a sometimes patchy second season - more episodes are not always a good thing, telly people - I could scarcely have been happier with how it ended. If we do get a third season, it may very well be the best yet. (ETA: Beware of possible spoilers in the comments).

So, in the meantime, have a completely spoiler free video (one minute long). I can find no way to embed this on LJ or DreamWidth, as the supplied embed code apparently only works with forums, and probably Tumblr. Everything works on Tumblr. Why can people not see that LJ and DreamWidth are better? Why does fandom persist in clinging to the wretched abomination that is Tumblr? Why is there cat hair in my tea? Well, at least the answer to the last question is obvious.

*exasperated eyeroll*

I love this video. Crane and Abbie deserve a third season, television. Get on it.

When you say "apparently", are you taking someone's word for it, or have you proved it by experiment? Because the embed code that comes up when I click on the Share Video button looks like a perfectly ordinary standard HTML embed code to me, and I'm pretty sure it ought to work with LJ and DW.

I've tried it. I've tried it as it comes, and I've tried re-writing it. It just comes up as a blank space. It's not quite the same as a standard LJ embed code; certainly it differs from a YouTube code.

If I switch to the rich text option for posting, it's visible, and playable, as a video in the posting window, but vanishes once the post is made. Then if I click the edit button, the coding has vanished altogether, which suggests that LJ really doesn't like it!

Huh. Okay. I apologize for doubting you.

And thank you for linking to the video - it was worth the effort.

It was a fair question! And yes, it is a nice video. :)

The last episode was soooo good! I'm super happy you-know-who is finally dead (gah, I've been waiting for that since the first episode).

Ssh! I don't want to risk giving anything away to anybody. But yeah, pretty much. :)

That icon makes me smile. Somebody ought to introduce Legolas to Loxley and Huntingdon. They can swap hair care tips. ;)

Haha, for sure! :D

Thanks for not talking about it as we just had the last episode of S1 on Monday ... *lol* S2 will start right away on Monday, though.

I love the S1 finale! Glad you're getting to see the show at last. I remember you saying that it had stopped after just a few episodes.
Feb. 27th, 2015 08:37 am (UTC)
Oh yes, they show it on one of the more obscure channels now ... :D
Feb. 27th, 2015 08:41 am (UTC)
Oh ... and I love Tumblr actually! :D
Feb. 27th, 2015 05:05 pm (UTC)
Lots of people do, I know! I just can't get the hang of it.

Why can people not see that LJ and DreamWidth are better? Why does fandom persist in clinging to the wretched abomination that is Tumblr?

I don't know! I mean, it is very handy for art and pics and things, so it should exist, but why everybody keeps wanting to do fandom from it when it's awful for all the things like having a conversation or running a fest, finding things again later, or basically anything that isn't posting visual media and pressing the like button. I don't understand it either.

(I haven't seen any Sleepy Hollow, sorry.)

I know there's some good stuff on Tumblr, but it just doesn't seem to be for me. I can't wrap my head around the way it works. *creaks with age* ;)

"Sleepy Hollow" is utterly fab. British guy from revolution-era America gets magicked into the present day, teams up with an American cop, and together they fight evil. The video is Crane attempting a selfie, being haughtily baffled about the whole idea, and then whole thing ending in ridiculous giggles. It is a show that I muchly recommend.
