You would think, after the end of Worldwired, I would have learned my lesson about writing fight scenes from the POV of people who can't fight.

You would think.

Also, just used the word limned. Margo Lanagan be coming to BUST ME UP. 

I don't believe in the kindness of God to man.

In other news, Nebula Awards nominees, including some of you! Wow. LOOK AT THAT MY FRIENDS ARE FAMOUS!

(also, secritcrush found a place to live. so no starving on the streets of Loundinium for her!)

via ashacat, incidentally my workout partner (when she's not living in fabulous Bangalore) OK GO dancing on treadmills. Man, the wipeouts must have been spectacular. Like, Jackie Chan blooper reel spectacular.

*watch me earworm THE ENTIRE INTERNET!


I'm afraid you can't do that, as that video has already made most of the rounds (and even has tributes done by fans (!!) out there now)

But, yeah... it's damn catchy, though not quite this catchy.
Um. Where is the first asterisk, Rafe?
That is an excellent question. You have a footnote in this post without any actual anchor.

*peers suspiciously at empty coffee cup*

I believe I know where the culprit is, but unabashedly use any excuse to inflict Dragostea din Tei on innocent civilians.
Look at the post title, Rafe. *g*
Who puts footnotes in their title?

Freak. ;-)
*flies the freak flag high*

Thank you.
Congrats, man!
Oh, that earworm has been good and stuck since yesterday, thankyouverymuch. Including the nice little bass part I wrote for it last summer and then never got to play.

It's like having OCD and blueballs all at once.
The OK Go vid is awesome!

Too late. One of the stores at the mall got me last night with Bonnie Tyler's It's a Heartache. Which even Hallelujah doesn't seem able to displace. Sigh.

*watch me earworm THE ENTIRE INTERNET!

Aaaargh! The Cohen Death Squad!
Hadn't seen that video before.
Did you click the link for the chipmunks version? They should've tweaked the audio slightly but it's nifty choreography nonetheless.
I';m sorry to be asking these publicly, but I don't have your private e-mail.

1. What are you taking the borage and flax for? I know someone told me to take 'em, but forgot why. (Duh)

2. Should you be taking shots of alcohol with that aspirin in your system?? I'm always careful about that stuff.

3. Do you know whether Anne Groell from Bantam Spectra takes unagented queries? The official Random House line is no unsolicited stuff, but a query might slip past. I saw the Locus list . . . she looks as if she likes dark fantasy. I don't even know where I would send the query. Agents hate me, but I still think maybe she would like my Camille novel.

4. Might you be attending any conferences soon? I'm going to a couple (including FenCon in Dallas and perhaps Backspace in NYC) and am deciding where to put my resources so as to see some of these LJ stars in person. . . .
1) bad skin and general health

2) moderate amounts of alcohol and aspirin are unlikely to kill you

3) I don't believe she does, but I honestly don't know for certain

4) I'll be at Penguicon, WisCon, Readercon, WFC, and probably San Diego ComiCon
