Something that I wrote has inspired a t-shirt. I feel like the ultimate nerd at this point.
Excuse me, I’m going to be over by my plasma ball celebrating like crazy.
So, a friend of mine bought my dad a catapult book because she felt like he needed it. My mother was not happy about this, as it will give him “ideas”
Not only does it give him ideas, it gives him blueprints. As in for construction.
So, what does my mom do? For Christmas, she picks out a build your own tabletop catapult kit for him.
Nope, there’s no way this could possibly go wrong. At all.
A remarkable fossil find has led to the discovery of something quite unexpected: Not just a new species of dinosaur, but a whole new genus. On Monday, researchers in Spain unveiled two armored dinosaur skeletons excavated from a coal mine in Teruel, a town in the northern part of the country.
I am so excited by this! So, in Spain, a new genus of armored dinosaurs was discovered, distinguished from previous specimens by the shape of the back of its skull and its pelvis. These finds suggest that there was geographical isolation involved, and the age of the fossils indicates that Europe was separated from North America earlier than scientists had estimated.
Dude, I freakin’ love science!
The former South African president died today at age 95. Remember him through his uplifting and revolutionary words.
I took a college class on the history of South Africa because of this man, because I wanted to understand the kind of world he lived in. I still don’t, but through that class, I at least got a frame of reference.
Ladies and gentlemen :oD Here’s a first look at the TV show I’ve been working on all year, HITRECORD ON TV! It’s a half-hour variety show with short films, live performances, music, cartoons, and of course, MORE!
Hundreds of thousands of artists from all over the world contribute to the collaborative projects we have going on our site — hitRECord.org — where I’ve been directing each piece and performing in a bunch of them too. Btw, we’re still finishing the last few episodes, so come contribute something…
It’s coming out January 18th, and it’s gonna be on a new cable channel called Pivot. I think you guys are reeeally gonna like it <3
One of the pieces is one that I wrote-and my Mom is already asking me when it’s going to be on DVD so she can see it.
My parents came to visit for Thanksgiving. They don’t often get away from their place, so it was a pretty big deal.
Of course, that means that from the time they announce they’re going to be coming to visit up until a day or so after they leave, my life ends up completely derailed. No writing happens while they’re here, because my mom asks me what I’m writing. No drawing/painting/etc gets done either for the same reasons.
That doesn’t mean their visits aren’t fun. It just means that I’m spending time with them and not messing around on the internet.
Good things came of that visit, though. My dad and I put together some extremely large shelving units to rearrange my room. Mom and I organized my DVD collection (which was in some serious need of help) It’s now separated into regular movies, TV shows, animated shows, and cartoon collections.
I got a violin for Christmas that I now need to teach myself to play. It was pretty fantastic, all things considered.
At its heart, The Sultan of Byzantium is a quest novel. There’s a hero with a mysterious heritage, a secret society, and journeys to far-flung locations in order to locate the keys to unlocking a…
This was the book that prompted a (now former) co-worker to ask me if it bothered me that I looked the way that I do and was reading books like this.
My answer was that it did not bother me in the slightest.
