  1. 2016 KC WorldCon: MidAmeriCon II Aug 17-21

    I will be there.  Can't wait to see everyone!
  2. Dragons: should we make them?

    You can pry my dragon from my cold, dead, hand. You know, I was just saying yesterday at work that I needed a dragon badly for when I wanted to burn someone alive.  My fellow coworkers weren't jazzed about it.
  3. Your goals for the new year

    My goal for 2016 is to have as much fun as I've had over the last 5 months.    
  4. Awesome. Awesome to the max.

    Congratulations!!!  That is awesome.  I need a shotgun.
  5. Amber Beads, WTF?

    So if I wear amber beads, am I going to be calm and have a stimulated intellect? Or can I just use them to choke someone?  Either way, it's a win/win.
  6. Best Music of 2015

    Wow!  I love him - that is so cool!
  7. Best Music of 2015

    This thread is so awesome; thank you, people! Here are my favorites of the year -  Leon Bridges, Coming Home album - I have worn this album out; seriously every single damn track on this album is pure magic.  He sounds like Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, and a young Marvin Gaye all rolled into one person. Smooth Sailin' Another vote for Sturgill Simpson, although technically, since the album was released in 2014, it doesn't really qualify for this thread other than being so freaking amazing you need to listen to another song from it.  Here's my favorite track of Metamodern Sounds in Country Music. Life of Sin Chris Stapleton, Traveler - another fantastic, gritty, alt-country artist who makes real music. Nobody to Blame Dave Rawlings Machine, Nashville Obsolete - his music is introspective, moody, and always fantastic. Short Haired Woman Blues
  8. training a bulldog puppy

    Am sitting on the sofa (had to move from my chair so that my dog could be right next to me) with the greatest dog ever.  I second Spock's suggestion; if you're not familiar with training dogs, get some help from someone that knows what they're doing; whether it's a book, a real, live person, or The Dog Whisperer...a good dog is better than pretty much anything, in my not-so-humble opinion. Also, just an fyi; I have a tendency to lie down and not move when I've walked/worked/played too hard, so it's not just stubborn dogs who do this.  
  9. Inigima Birthday Vanity Thread

    Happy Birthday to my friend, Inigima - hope it's as awesome as you are, but that's probably not possible.      
  10. Awesome. Awesome to the max.

    Much better; thank you.  
  11. Awesome. Awesome to the max.

    Tom and Jerry will always be the bomb.  However, ME, I am not feeling the love here.   So I will see your Tom and Jerry and raise you a Squidbillies.
  12. December Reads - Curl up with a good book this Christmas

    I just finished Rick Bragg's biography of Jerry Lee Lewis, Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story and it was freaking electric.  Jerry Lee is a wildman, and Bragg's poetic way of describing Jerry Lee's lifestyle, overly large ego, and overly large talent is pretty much hypnotic.
  13. Authors whose death you most regret?

    John Kennedy Toole and William Gay.  Both wrote two of my favorite books - A Confederacy of Dunces (Toole) and  Twilight (Gay - and not THAT Twilight.  Ugh.)   Toole died in his 30's, but Gay lived to his 70's.  I just wish he would have written a bit more.  I suppose I'm greedy.
  14. Dating: Matchmakers, dealbreakers and affairs, oh my!

    I had to look up 'camgirl'.  I didn't even know what that was.  I feel old.  Very, very, old.  Now get off of my lawn.  
  15. Into the Badlands, Thoughts?

    I love this show; it's like Bruce Lee meets "Escape from New York."  I also like the whooshing and the gymnastics.  Plus, the leather outfits are wicked cool.   Seriously, I think it's great.  There doesn't seem to be much plot, but the visuals are just fantastic.
