So, yeah.
Been meaning to start using this for a while.
I was just lazy, and not posting anywhere really.

The fact that the LJ DDoS attacks happened right when I decided to come back kind of made the decision for me!
It only took 42 years, but I have successfully mastered the art of roasting a chicken!
Tuesday. This one was easier and most of it was got.
#3. Didn't show up. It was the Fab Four
#7. Sonic Youth Though I let the cat out of the bag on that one with [livejournal.com profile] strontium90.
#14. Linton Kwesi Johnson, the most incredible Dub Poet of all time. If you have even the smallest love of reggae, and have not heard this man, you must. I recommend a track called Reggae fi Peach, though I bet [livejournal.com profile] strontium90 has a few places he'd recommend starting as well.

Wednesday. Yes, some of these were obscure.
#2. Eureka girl made good, Sarah Barellies.
#4. Della Reese, my favorite Jazz Diva!
#5. Indie Pioneers Mission of Burma
#8. Former Smithereens frontman Pat DiNizio
#12. Billy Bragg
#13. Yeah, I'm not surprised nobody got The Fleshtones

→ Find pictures of the first 15 artists. If repeated, skip it.
→ Have your friendslist guess the 15 artists.

I think today's might have given me some even harder and obscure musicians. There are only 2 real "gimmes" and I have a feeling #10 will drive a lot of people nuts.

here we go again! )

So yeah, I'm starting the process of migrating over to Dreamwidth.
Most likely, I will post anything there here as well, at least for the time being, but eventually, if Dreamwidth lives up to its promise, I'll move over there full time.

I'm not giving Six Apart another cent, though.

-edit- Oh yeah, same name there as here!
Back from a very, very wet SCA event.
Had to share the quote of the weekend.

"Rich, man, if you don't go to that Chivalry meeting and they knight the emu..."
"Hey, man, I'd votefor the emu!"
So this weekend, the Kingdom Rapier Marshal was up to authorize a couple of our rapier fighters and hang out. I had decided a few weeks ago to start on my Authorization as a Rapier Marshal, since it would continue my growth/education as a Marshal. In the process of working on that, I played with a rapier a little bit, and realized just how much I missed fencing.

Well, by the time Steffan left us this weekend, I had become a Rapier Marshall, and he had forced me to accept a loaner schlager so I could start working on authorizing as a fighter as well.

I still plan on authorizing in Chivalric. My main focus is still on my Marshaling, and I don't think I can/should become a Senior Marshall without getting in armor and knowing the game from that side. Hell, I really am not sure I'd ever feel comfortable authorizing somebody myself if I didn't know what it felt like. Kind of funny though, learning to fight to become a better Marshal instead of the opposite way around. The other part of my continued education as a Marshall will be going after both Archery and Siege Engine Marshal authorization. The only one I don't want is Equestrian.

While I'm not sure I'll ever be a decent Chivalric fighter, I do think I can be a decent rapier fighter, so I'm going to put some energy in there. Yes, I'll probably keep a hand in both, so I can at least be a useful spearman on the line during wars.

I need to give some more thought to the Herald side of my SCA growth. Since leaving Ansteorra, it hasn't had the same draw to me as the Marshalling. Should I put it down or put it on a back burner? I don't think I can put it down until I find somebody else up here who is interested in it and train them up. I was in the process of doing that, but then the person had to up and become Baroness. So at the very least, I'll be heralding court in Allyshia.

And then one of these days, I'll actually start working on the bookbinding project...
Aztec Camera singing Jump, possibly the greatest cover of all time.
Discuss.
Wait a second. Michael Beck and Deborah Van Valkenburgh have signed on to reprise Swan and Mercy in the remake of The Warriors? They are how old by now?

-edit-It's apparently a sequel. And in LA. So Swan and Mercy did go see the world, and I don't know, their kids are in a gang that also happens to shoot somebody named Cyrus? Why does it suddenly smell like Denmark around here?

-edit take two-No, its worse. Cyrus never died. I need to stop looking into the specifics of this movie before my head goes 'splodey!
Seeing Rachel Maddow and Annamarie Cox keep straight faces while discussing the Conservative "teabagging" movement is hilarious. I'm really surprised they weren't giggling like crazy by the end of the segment!
If you want Matzah ball soup from scratch, you better start driving towards Eureka now!
I love it that my random playlist can have the Vandal's cover of Complain (from Bob Roberts) answered by See How We Are by X.
Ok, does anybody here ever watch Two and a Half Men?

[livejournal.com profile] ugali was flipping through the channels, and happened to land on it for a scene that had us in stitches. Charlie Sheen, John Cryer, Ryan Styles, JD Walsh, and Michael Clarke Duncan(!?!) (i.e., Manute from Sin City and the Kingpin in Daredevil) as a bunch of middle aged men shooting the shit while two of their kids are out on a date.

It was, quite possibly, one of the funniest Sitcom moments of all time. And I am usually not a fan of the Sitcom. And DAYUM Michael Clarke Duncan really can do commedy!
So [livejournal.com profile] ugali and I were just watching a very disturbing satire over on IFC, called CSA.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0389828/

It's one of the best, and most disturbing looks at "what if the South had one" I have seen.
But funny at the same time. Please pardon the pun, but black humor at its best...
After all these years, I realized this weekend at the Redwood Coast Jazz Festival that I'm really a Trad.
Off to March Crown!
We didn't make Gulf Wars, but at least we'll make Crown...
