Welcome to the forty-fifth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, October 17-Sunday, October 18. The theme is "Abilities & Disabilities." Visit the Creative Jam over on LiveJournal.


Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Everyone is eligible to post prompts, which may be words or phrases, titles, images, etc. Prompters may request a specific creator, but everyone else may still use that prompt if they wish. Prompts may specify a particular character/world/etc. but creators may use the prompt for something else anyway and post the results. Prompters are still encouraged to post mostly prompts that anyone could use anywhere, as this maximizes the chance of having creators make something based on your prompt. Please title your comment "Prompt" or "Prompts" when providing inspiration so these are easy to find.

Prompt responses may also be treated as prompts and used for further inspiration. For example, a prompt may lead to a sketch which leads to a story, and so on. This kind of cascading inspiration is one of the most fun things about a collective jam session.

Everyone is eligible to use prompts, and everyone who wants to use a given prompt may do so, for maximum flexibility of creator choice in inspiration. You do not have to post a "Claim" reply when you decide to use a prompt, but this does help indicate what is going on so that other prompters can spread out their choice of prompts if they wish.

Creators are encouraged, but not required, to post at least one item free. Likewise, sharing a private copy of material with the prompter is encouraged but not required. Creative material resulting from prompts should be indicated in a reply to the prompt, with a link to the full content elsewhere on the creator's site (if desired); a brief excerpt and/or description of the material may be included in the reply (if desired). It helps to title your comment "Prompt Filled" or something like that so these are easy to identify. There is no time limit on responding to prompts. However, creators are encouraged to post replies sooner rather than later, as the attention of prompters will be highest during and shortly after the session.

Some items created from prompts may become available for sponsorship. Some creators may offer perks for donations, linkbacks, or other activity relating to this project. Check creator comments and links for their respective offerings.

Prompters, creators, and bystanders are expected to behave in a responsible and civil manner. If the moderators have to drag someone out of the sandbox for improper behavior, we will not be amused. Please respect other people's territory and intellectual property rights, and only play with someone else's characters/setting/etc. if you have permission. (Fanfic/fanart freebies are okay.) If you want to invite folks to play with something of yours, title the comment something like "Open Playground" so it's easy to spot. This can be a good way to attract new people to a shared world or open-source project, or just have some good non-canon fun.

Boost the signal! The more people who participate, the more fun this will be. Hopefully we'll see activity from a lot of folks who regularly mention their projects in this community, but new people are always welcome. You can link to this session post or to individual items created from prompts, whatever you think is awesome enough to recommend to your friends.

Just out of curiosity:

What's the source/context for that J. K. Rowling quote? Is it in the voice of one of her characters? Or did she say it as her own self?

It's a line from the end of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Arthur Weasley speaking, and further context would spoil the big reveal of the plot.

Okie-doke. :-) My mother taught me, in evaluating the merits of an opinion, to always "Consider the source."

For this month's theme, I can't think of a better prompt than Signmark''s "Impossible is My Thing."

Video is just as important as audio.

That's a good one... But I prefer his video "Fighting" (Which is International Sign, or "Gestuno"), because it focuses on the sign itself, and visual rhymes:

Thanks for the links!

I like fighting more as a song, on mulitple levels, but I picked the other for emotional reasons this month. LOL.

Fair enough. All reasons for picking a song are valid -- especially emotional ones. One of the reasons "Fighting" resonates with me is that it showed up on my YouTube subscription page in the immediate wake of a literary discussion of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, and it just hit the sweet zeitgeist spot in my head.

(And More *hugs,* if you need them)

Hugs are always appreciated! Thanks!

There are little things that just click for me with this particular blend of signed and sung music-- in "Talk To the Hand," there's this little gesture, jutting his chin out, that is so... sassy isn't quite right, but it's close, that it makes me laugh every time I see it. The music isn't slow, or cerebral, or religious, which is often a multi-intersecting commonality with the earlier signed music I'd seen.

In "Fighting," it's the signs for "be brave, fight the fear" with different speakers, and everything they show, also shows their different voices.

Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that I can't take this particular set of songs to the gym; I hkept stopping to WATCH the video!

Well, he is a rapper, first and foremost. And, second, a lot of signed "music" (at least, the stuff that put out for consumption by Hearing culture -- not what Deaf people create for themselves), is created within a warped sense of charity -- that those "Poor deaf people must be so deprived, since they can't enjoy our beautiful music -- so we'll give it to them." Bleurgh!

LOL! That happens a lot with me, too.

Actually, some of the problem is that the last time I focused on learning sign for myself, it was pre-internet (literally, before 1990!), and there just wasn't MUCH around here other than going to churches which had an interpreter, or occasionally, a "music interpreter"-- which meant, of course, the slower, religious songs were the ones chosen to interpret.

Getting back to it after teaching SOME sign to the youngest is fun, because now I can look for the words I want to learn, rather than trying to be systematic. I found the "I need this word NOW" tag hangs on the words I've been able to retain in German, Spanish, and ASL, and after that, different words stick for different rates, depending upon how the language is structured.

Oh, and I still suck at becoming bilingual.

Prompt the first: Disability very much without a side of magical amazingness i.e. no super blindy.

Prompt the second, admittedly aimed at Ysabet: A deaf Floppit! I'm drawing at least some inspiration from Sesame Street's adult human character Linda for this one, but your mileage may very much vary.

Prompt the third, in the realm of extra abilities rather than disability: Functional polydactilae in a human. Please, no non-humorous 'My father was killed by a six-fingered man' references, please.
