Kathy Mar has been asked to run the filk events for Westercon 67 and today she asked me to do 20 minutes at the concert. Let's skip the ohgodohgodohgod and go straight to planning a set list. She said I could do folk and parody as well. I am thinking maybe Banned from Argo and a short statement about how everyone should get over the fact that the younger generation of filk geeks loves them some Banned from Argo, Tell me Ma, Comforts of Home if I can figure out the chording, Sloop John B, Planet Earth by Danielle Ate the Sandwich. I should think of a backup or two. Sparkly Vampires? Never Set the Cat on Fire?

Why Voldemort is the baddest villain ever;
A scholarly and considered article by Damon Lindelof:



Sympathizing with villains as young children and then paving the way for their corresponding heartwarming redemption is all the rage these days. Star Wars committed an entire trilogy to young Anakin Skywalker—all for the purpose of helping us understand why he turned to the dark side. Even the Smoke Monster on Lost was a little boy, once. A boy who loved his mommy very much. Do you know what Voldemort thought of his mommy? Me neither. Because he killed her. Technically in childbirth, but who’s to say he wasn’t planning it for the nine months it took him to gestate?

I can not find my copy of Final Fantasy VII ANYWHERE! I'm trying to remember if maybe I loaned it to someone .... If you have it, let me know. Or if you want to lend me your copy, also let me know. I need to replay it for NO PARTICULAR OR SPECIFIC REASON. <.<

Family reunion camping trip this weekend. I'll be out of touch for a couple of days.

So, in talking about THE INCIDENT with work friends, my attractive friend said that when she is out walking motorists scream come ons and innuendos at her and my very tall very thin male friend said that when he is out walking the most common thing that people yell at him is "Get a car!"

This morning a passenger in a moving vehicle threw a bottle at me while I was waiting for a bus. They were going about 40mph and they narrowly missed my left arm. They yelled something or other, but whatever life lesson they wanted me to take away from the experience was lost to traffic noise and Doppler effect.

While waiting for buses or walking along the sides of roads I have often been honked at or yelled at. By, I suspect, the same people who complain that more people should carpool or use alternate means of transportation so that they don't have to deal with so much traffic. But this was a first.
