--The Kickstarter to fund year 3 of Sparkler Monthly
has only four days left, and still needs about $2500. If you haven't looked at them and are at all into the idea of female gaze-oriented prose/comics/audio drama covering a variety of stories, brought together by lifelong fangirls with tons of experience, please consider checking them out and helping to make their third year happen.
--For the last several days I've been waking up around 7 or 7:30, lying awake long enough to seriously wonder if I should just get up (despite my having been staying up late enough that my alarm's been set for 10 or 10:30), and then falling back to sleep and having incredibly bizarre dreams. It's an odd pattern. :/ Can't say I like it much.
--Last night scruloose
prepped Doughbot, so I woke up (the second time) to the smell of fresh-baked bread and had some for brunch, with the raspberry jam Kas and Ginny made after our first berrying outing.
--I need to spend more time reading in general, but reading through a stack of graphic novels from the library has reminded me of my theory that reading one GN or one manga volume every day would be a significant change to my current reading habits, and it wouldn't take all that much time each day. It'd be nice to put a dent in that part of my to-read backlog, esp. given how much manga I own and haven't read. >.<
--Via Twitter, NBC has all of Kings posted for online viewing.
(Doesn't seem to be available in Canada, alas.)
--Last night I did the first part of the Scrivener tutorial, and mostly it just hurt my head. A few different people on Twitter weighed in and said they hadn't really spent much time with the tutorial except when they actually needed to figure something out. It's very jargony, so I think I might take that approach. And right now clicking "take snapshot" completely freezes the program. Awkward. (Opening the system monitor reveals that instead of a CPU percentage, the monitor says "zombie" for Scrivener [O_O], which scruloose
says is a specific error that he forgets the meaning of offhand. He and Kas are both very busy from now until the beginning of next week, but hopefully we can get it sorted out.)
's new CD, Creature Feature, is out
! It's also already out of stock at CD Baby, but I've placed an order for whenever they get around to sending her a restock request.
--The newest BPAL update
includes...well. Let them say it: "We’ve had myriad political figures throughout US history that have possessed acid tongues, but few in the modern era have provided such a constant stream of colorfully vitriolic superlatives as Antonin Scalia.
He is the federal court’s beat poet of indignation and right-wing rage.
For your pleasure, we present a line dedicated to SCOTUS’ reigning Sick Burn Champion, the cranky, flamboyant, inimitable Justice Antonin Gregory Scalia. Proceeds from every single bottle will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Trevor Project, and the National Center for Transgender Equality."
(I'm hoping to avoid going in on any decant circles, because once again, I haven't worn any perfume in months
and have plenty of other places I spend my money. >.> But the applesauce scent sounds tempting, and the idea behind this small line is great.)
