Automata …and hurdy gurdys


I thought I needed to put in something whimsical.  I like mechanical things. and whimsy. and creativity. “I Feel, therefore I Am,” Paul Spooner “It’s an Uphill Battle,” Conquergood Creative “A Horse of a Different Color,” Conquergood Creative   … I got sidetracked into thinking about instruments.  which are always a fascination for me.  and […]

Dylan Moran: types of alcohol


Ok, so I deleted my late night drunken I-hate-work-and-everything-is-shit rant from last night.  But I’ll replace it with this.  This guy gets it.

Laura Jane Grace interview on Daily Show with Trevor Noah, here (comedycentral) ——————————————————————————————————————— A two-part post tonight.  I was watching various YouTube videos, videos on personal experiences with Aspbergers, among other things, and thought I’d share that.  and then I thought about Laura Jane Grace, because I’d seen an interview with her on Daily Show […]

Wild West: hidden awesome people
