Looking through my "favorites" collection on DeviantArt, I've realized that I'm a big fan of abstract art, pretty girls, monsters, or some combination of all three. Also Mass Effect fan art, but that's not surprising to anyone.


I'm just in it for the boobs.

Hearing your own songs on the radio will never stop being weird.

Weird but awesome, I would imagine. How long has that been going on?

here's hoping you never stop hearing such dulcet tones, and that the novelty never wears off.

Sounds like my 7 y/o although i make him eat fruit and veggies too. Lucky for me, he's so used to it that he doesn't even protest.


Combine fruits and meats or veggies and meats. If he gets used to such combos and like them he'll keep eating them...

Nah, Impacts still about - but on an even more obscure network. But good to see a more motivated Joe.

Album came out last June, I think? Some time after that. It's not necessarily a good weird.


Are you on Pandora?

That match was great, even knowing who was going to win.


Another recommendation for the bibliophiles:

The Everness Series Billed as a YA series, it is very enjoyable, and Ian McDonald is a craftsmen when it comes to settings. His science-fictiony takes on Turkey, India, and Brazil are also worth reading. The Everness series deals with alternate universes, and as such is right in my wheelhouse.

Another sounds good to me series!

My daughter (after MUCH trying in middle school) finally found her reading niche. Twisted Fairy tales.
(Not THOSE! get your minds out of the gutter!) ;P

The ones where either fairy tale persons are real, and living in our world, or you can visit them, or something similar, like Disney's recent 'Descendants' movie.

I enjoyed the Kingdom Keepers Series, Already into it's second series, (I still need to finish the last book of the 1st series.) In this one, ALL of the Disney characters are real (good and bad) and a group of kids, who also happen to have been used as life models for the new 3D holographic park guide system, are trying to stop the villains from taking over. :)

She also likes the Land of Stories (Haven't read them yet, but the quotes she showed me are hysterical. She adapted at least one into a monologue for an audition.)

And Peter and the Starcatchers (Now the first of an entire series) Basically what if Peter Pan were real? (If my info is correct, when the rights to Peter Pan ran out, the Hospital to whom Barrie had left the ownership held a contest for a new author to continue the story. THIS was the winner. Now a series of books, AND a Broadway show!) :)

If you like your YA level books that are actually pretty well written. :)


Speaking of cool books The Spider's War just dropped! Soooooo excited!


In the parking lot. Again


Ah well, I could be dealing with the meth head inside. So I guess I should count my blessings.


I had to pick up The Spider's War. It's just such a cool series


Making banking a cool fantasy story arc. Only Daniel Abraham


Of course there are also dragons. And spiders that live in your blood which allow you to detect lies. And a bookworm turned genocidal tyrant who you want to hate but you end up kind of feeling sorry for.


Which speaks to Abraham's mastery that he can make a Hitler/Stalin/Mao-level genocidal despot kind of geekily awkward and sad.

I hope that work goes well for you tonight Patrick.


Thanks Sharoth! I'm almost done. Although I'm back at 8 am. And we have that spring forward thing so I'm losing an hour of sleep.

No worries! I'm happy to get the hours

I understand. I really did not want to take that callout this morning, but extra money is extra money.

Nope. A lot of music streaming services, including Pandora and Spotify, are renowned for screwing over and exploiting musicians, paying them fractions of a penny on the dollar while themselves making large amounts of money.


So, basically like the rest of the music industry since time began?


It's kind of sad when you think on it. The maker of art usually gets the sh1tty end of the stick, while the promoter/manager/label makes obscene profits solely by regulating access to the music by the masses.

Is there a service you use, Shiny? I've seen you post up a few things from that Bandcamp site.

There's a lot of great stuff coming out, I'm cheap by nature, but even I'm having trouble not bottoming out the bank account. :-)

indeed. The problem is that gaming stuff isn't cheaper.

I hear you. It's hard to downsize. But, you don't want your collection to take over your life. Then you become a hoarder

Bandcamp is pretty good-- they take 10% of earnings, but it's "off the bottom," so to speak (once the page owner makes $90, Bandcamp takes the next $10 that the page earns, and then the cycle repeats-- it makes sure that everyone gets paid and the musician gets paid first). Band pages default to allowing free streaming with the option to buy .mp3 or .wmv files and donate money, though page owners can change those settings.

This is awesome.

I love things that can heal, if you haven't noticed.
