Immigrant to DW

hm, hm, hm, hmmmmm.
Haven't used my LJ for six months but still follow some S/H over there and am dismayed to see LJ has gone bad. Again.
So, working on emigrating my old stuff from LJ to here.

Star Trek Mirror Moodboards

Any Star Trek fans over here, amidst the Starsky & Hutch fans?
ST: TOS was my first, and remains the fandom of my heart.

I see lots of cool moodboards--a form new to me-- over on tumblr,
--I'd love to make these for Starsky & Hutch too,
but these, my first, ones I made today all take off from the Star Trek episode "Mirror, Mirror".

Starsky & Hutch Knitwear

I made this photomanip in response to Mortmere's posting about a KNITWEAR party.

Looks like the battle of the crocheted poufs.

"I brought you flowers."

Did I say I was going to
1. clean the house?
2. go for a walk?
3. work?
Yes, yes, I did.

Did I instead spend a couple/few hours making this exchange of Picasso's flowers?
Yes, yes, I did.

Was it worth it?
It totally was.

Dawnebeth alerted me (here) that Starsky has a poster behind his bed of two hands exchanging this bouquet of flowers, by Picasso.
I've posted the screencap here.

Picasso's Flowers in Starsky's Bedroom

Starsky has Picasso's "Petit Fleurs" (a popular poster in the 70s) up in his bedroom, we see in the episode "The Committee" (thanks, Mortmere, for the screecap!).

Mortmere posted a screenshot of Starky's apartment that shows Starsky's wooden "etc." on the wall.

Does everyone already know that Rhoda Morgenstern (Valerie Harper) has the same "etc." on her wall? She's another East Coast Jewish transplant (but, to Minneapolis) and Mary Richard is her downstairs neighbor on The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970-1977). [picture via]

I wish we could see Mary & Rhoda interact with Starsky & Hutch.

Mortmere's Starsky & Hutch on LJ!

I'm so happy that my fan-friend Mortmere is posting about Starsky & Hutch here on LJ!

She's here:
Her icon reveals her orientation:

Mortmere and I first met on youTube via our Star Trek: TOS vids (the original Kirk/Spock) in …
*does the math*
wow, in 2009. [I stand corrected--it was 2008!]
We got talking on LJ--it's like time travel to read those old comments--then email, and we met in person to walk part of the Camino in Spain in 2011 (along with FreshCandy).

We've always stayed in touch on e-mail, but we went in different fandom directions--
and fandom itself got scattered to the winds...
Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, deviantArt, DW, etc. (I'm actually still on Blogger, where I wander the halls by myself. I actually rather like the quiet.)

Then, this year Mortmere introduced me to Inspector Lewis (or, rather, to Hathaway, the thinking-fan's slim jim!),
and I returned the favor by introducing her to Starky & Hutch.
We have achieved fandom cross-pollination!

She's been on Tumblr but I told her the Starsky & Hutch fandom is a little more connected on LJ, so here she is! It's like we're playing in the same sandbox again. I'm much more inspired to make fanworks if I'm playing with others.

Starsky & Hutch Stuff

My friend Mortmere [links to tumblr] [M's LJ here] and I have been wondering about (and researching) some of the stuff on the sets of Starsky & Hutch.
Like, what's this weird dog?

I rummaged around and discovered it’s a carnival prize, a bulldog made out of “chalkware”. They were usually handpainted (with water-soluble paint), so each one’s a little different.
Like this one:

From Collector’s Weekly:
“Made out of plaster of Paris, chalkware was used to create inexpensive versions of decorative objects such as animal figurines—so many small figurines were given away as prizes at carnivals, the pieces became known as “carnival chalk.”
“The heyday of the material was the early 19th to mid-20th centuries…”

So, OK, but what it is doing in-universe?

If Aries Were a Movie Poster

What movie best illustrates your astrological sign?
I am working on illustrating the astrological signs as collaged movie posters.
This one's for Aries. Mad Max Rockatansky in Fury Road, The Fast and the Furious (never seen one of the series, but the title's spot on), and––of course––our Starsky.

Starsky & Hutch Confessin'

Starsky & Hutch want to confess their love but mostly they just heave a lot of sighs in this new little gem of a fanvid (set to the sublime Peggy Lee's "I'm Confessin'")--by Milkweedy (or own FreshCandy)

Straight Hair, Curly Hair

I saw the original 1966 cover of this kids' science book and naturally I thought, I must spend many units of time making this about Starsky & Hutch.

Lynda Córdova Carter, Wonder Woman 1975-1979

Lynda Córdova Carter, Wonder Woman 1975-1979

Carter’s mother, Juana Córdova, was of Mexican ancestry; her father, Colby Carer, Irish American.

Carter said, “I never thought a picture of my body would be tacked up in men’s bathrooms. I hate men looking at me and thinking what they think. And I know what they think. They write and tell me.”

Carter on Wonder Woman:
“She was accessible. People either wanted to be her, or be her best friend. She lives in us. There’s a part of her that is the secret self, the unrecognized self that we all have.”

–Quote via

Carter also has been grand marshal at Pride parades from Phoenix to D.C.

The original striped-tomato jumpsuit

This is the 1970s fashion photo I turned into the genderswap Starsky/Hutch (post below).
I LOVE both the jumpsuits! But of course the one that looks like Starsky's car just slays me.
