[personal profile] baranduin asked us to post music vids we like, so I looked up my favorite local band from my Chapel Hill, NC days in the 80s and 90's who are still playing now--Southern Culture on the Skids (SCOTS). They put on one hell of a concert and I don't think the vids can capture the dancing energy. They do very fun, campy rockabilly, or swampabilly as they name it--hilarious, though sometimes the offensiveness outdoes the campiness, the playing is always top notch and food is a favorite subject for them.

  • Bob Elliott, the other half of Bob & Ray, the durable long-playing radio & TV comedy team.  They also did commercials.  I was too young to understand them in their heyday (I did understand they were supposed to be funny--I just didn't get how) but eventually they began to make sense.  
  • Frank Finlay, actor
  • Included for the record:  The New York Times obit for David Hartwell, which has taken almost two weeks to appear.

Seriously, dude, ask permission. Is that so hard?

The new Darin Morgan ep was fun, but he's a better writer than director.

Everone misses Kim Manners.

I plowed all the way through "Animita Hippie" driving myself to a very transcendent state of mind sort of channeling another person's experience and doing some immersive reading in tangential directions and I also might be having my usual PMS cry, a day late. Thinking of all the stories and experiences and lives and talents of many people I know or have known and appreciating them!

we went to my sister's as she has a badly sprained ankle. She got up and went down the stairs and drove around with me a while which was her first time out of the house since the injury. We brought over my walker and shower chair for her. she is wildly plotting how to manage her life and do everything. i watched her bump down, then crawl up, the stairs. she only sprained it what, thursday? it is huge rather like the illustration from the little prince of the snake that swallowed an elephant/hat. But with an elephant inside a formerly snake shaped foot and ankle.

Survived a week at a new job. Turns out even in a trade you can get stuck doing data entry at a desk. Well, I guess that aborted computer science studies course I took once forever ago ended up helping me get that job, anyhow.

My knee's been sore for just about as long, too. Unrelated to work; but now I don't want to waste a week-end waiting at the clinic to get it checked out, either, if at it needs is rest, ice, etc. I could sleep in tomorrow instead. OTOF, my grandma nearly lost a leg because of a blood clot a while back.

In older better news the insurance said the police report proved me entirely not responsible for the car accident, since the other driver cut me off when I had right of way.

So, there's that.

I can probably afford that outrageously expensive Hot Toys Rey (with lightsaber!) figure I've been planning to save up for as a birthday gift to myself later this year. If the loonie stops dropping in value.

i am in hell: there's a cold, hungry cat outside, and it's cold and windy, and i only have the one room so i really can't let it in. my cats would freak. they freaked about my even feeding it, the mama cat especially. she's like, i know you you soft touch, this is how i got to know you in the first place. shit shit shit. i had to hiss it away from my door, it was stressing her out too much, and i don't have any help to give it anyway. it's gone next door, and is having a yowl-off with the neighbors' cat. i hope someone else on the block can let it in, poor thing, it was awfully nice and friendly
