1. For a vid I am vaguely contemplating making, I am looking for a triumphant saving-the-world type song - the sort of song you might vid women kicking ass to, if that makes sense. (The Eurythmics "I Saved the World Today" is topically right, but way too regretful, sadly.)

2. I am currently applying both a mineral sunscreen (mostly suspended in oil) and an oil-based bug deterrent (citronella, lemongrass, etc, in an oil + beeswax base). So my question is, in which order should I apply these things? Should I wait for a bit between them? The internet is full of answers to this question that presume DEET, which, like, ha, as if, I have tried many brands of DEET at work in the past and they all make me cough and cough and cough. So then I stopped using them, but I still had a ridiculous asthma attack at a state fair last year when someone sprayed it over their shoulder directly into my face. THANKS, assholes.

FWIW, if you're looking for bug sprays, I've previously been able to use permethrin-based insect repellant - the kind you soak or spray onto clothes and let dry - without any skin reaction. It's one of those things I only do if there's a really serious bug problem, or I'm going to be outside all the time, because I have to wear gloves and a face mask to apply the spray, but once it's on and dried I launder it once and then it's fine for me.

3. Why is it that, when I rewatch Babylon 5, I always end up rewatching "Infection" even though I know it will hurt me? I mean, okay, I am that kind of completist about fandoms, but I've been happily skipping the A plot of "Believers" (except for Kosh's scene) and "TKO" for years now. I don't know why I'm sitting here right now watching Ilya Kuryakin as a space archaeologist. I could be rewatching River Song right now! Who wins in a space-archaeologist-off by approximately all the points ever.

Day Is Dawning is a great kickass song, but maybe better suited to apocalypse?

I saw a really good save-the-world kickass-type vid to Michael (Jump In), if you don't mind reusing vidded songs. I have sadly forgotten the vidder and the fandom. It may have been LoM?

I skip Infection, but I always watch Believers. YMMV.

Ooh. For Lyta? Hmm.

I have long wanted to make either a B5 or a BSG (I can't tell which) vid to I Know I'm Not Alone. But that would be more "we must all hang on together during this war and isolation," so that doesn't really help.

Ooh I like suggesting songs for vids . . . may I ask who'll be saving the world or whether you have a preferred genre/style for the song?

First thing that came to mind was some of the songs off My Chem's Danger Days. Nanana, Bulletproof Heart, and Planetary Go might work?

I'd suggest Destiny Calling by James but that's been done a couple of times....

I say this without prejudice to how much I love the man, but my god he made some weird career choices.

*grins* Well, I love Man From U.N.C.L.E. I adore Sapphire & Steel. I freely admit to only watching NCIS for Ducky, though. :P (And Pauley Perrette.)

It's just.... of all the reasons to start watching Babylon 5!

So, you're the second person in three days to agree with me that basically we don't need NCIS, we need The Ducky and Abby Show. Get on that plz, universe.

Okay okay you may be convincing me a teeny bit. Maybe. I will try the pilot, this is what I will do.

(Is he using his actual accent as a space archaeologist from space? I just... I cannot make this compute.)
