A Cappella Music, Babylon5, and Firefly, Oh My!

This after­noon, I opened the blinds on the win­dows behind my chair, think­ing it would draw Kioshi off the mon­i­tor (his tail kept obscur­ing the screen) to look out the win­dows. Nope. He turned around, so at least his tail was­n’t in the way, but he was inor­di­nate­ly pleased with him­self because he could then […]

Relearning How to Play the Piano

I can’t remem­ber whether or not I bur­bled about this already, but if this is a repeat you can get extra hugs the next time I see you or some­thing. We have a work­ing, mar­velous, beau­ti­ful piano! It’s the freecy­cled Korg 88-key dig­i­tal that I men­tioned way back in Novem­ber, all clean and func­tion­al thanks […]

Further Prof of Insanity: Blog365

I got through NaBloPo­Mo, as ridicu­lous as it was to com­mit to post­ing at least once a day for a month. So of course that small suc­cess has led me, in a moment of more-than-usu­al-luna­­cy, to sign up for Blog365 (oth­er­wise known as “Out of the Fry­ing Pan, Into the Fire”). The pur­pose is fair­ly clear: […]

Is There A NaNoReMo?

I think I want a Nation­al Nov­el Read­ing Month. I could do a nov­el a day (as long as I chose the right nov­els, of course). I’m behind on writ­ing reviews, but I’m wal­low­ing unabashed­ly in the num­ber of good reads avail­able to me right now. I’ve tweaked the Now Read­ing wid­get to show up […]

Ooo, I Want! New Putumayo CD

I love Putu­may­o’s CDs, and we have at least ten or so. I’ve yet to hear one of their com­pi­la­tions that I did­n’t enjoy. But I real­ly, real­ly adore their Celtic col­lec­tions, and I’m a big goofy nut about lul­la­bies. I don’t know why—maybe it’s because nobody sang them to me—but I can’t get enough of […]

Rumbles from the Recliner

Not from the grave, oh no, not yet! It’s been too long to do a real “this is all that has hap­pened in my life.” Writ­ing it would exhaust me, and read­ing it would like­ly bore you. If you want to know about some­thing in par­tic­u­lar, please ask. I’ll be post­ing a few things short­ly that […]

Gaming & Podcasting & TV, oh my!

Sam has start­ed anoth­er pod­cast in cahoots with Bill Wal­ton. This one, Square One, is for com­plete­ly new gamers. Check it out — they’ve done a good job. I’m in one episode, though I don’t think that one’s up yet. Sam and I are part of a group play­ing Out in the Black, a Seren­i­ty RPG […]

Musical Memories

Fol­low­ing Bill (fos­si­la­pos­tle’s) lead, I’ll play along with the “music meme” that’s mak­ing the rounds. Go to Pop Cul­ture Mad­ness and check out the songs from the year in which you turned 18 (1984 for me, if any­one cares). Bold the songs you like(d). Under­line or strike the songs you didn’t/don’t. I’m ital­i­ciz­ing the ones […]
