I bought Dragon Con tickets for myself and my sister! We're also going to the Night at the Georgia Aquarium thing too. It was pricey but I'll worry about that later lmao. [personal profile] imperion might be going, another friend is definitely going, and my nephew is going (that part is not so exciting, lmao). I also found out that another friend is going in a different group, so we're making plans to meet up at some point. I AM SO EXCITED, Y'ALL. *vibrates*

And I didn't even realize how close it is! Only 40 days away! Omggggggggg.
inkstone: The Gotcha screen from Pokemon Go (PokeGo)
[personal profile] inkstone posting in [community profile] pokestop
Looks like problems continued to plague Chicago PokeGo Fest, so if you're one of our Chicago players who attended, here's something for you.

For the rest of us, there's an event to celebrate the addition of legendary pokemon to the game (as Raid Bosses) for the next 48 hours!
  • double stardust

  • double candy

  • double XP (use those lucky eggs for quadruple XP!)

  • reduced hatching distance (looks like this only applies to new eggs put into incubators; an egg I already had in an incubator didn't update the distance)

  • reduced buddy distance

  • increased encounters

(Full details)

Get out there & walk!

1. I have to stay till closing tomorrow, which means I don't have to go in until noonish, so I can have a nice lazy morning.

2. Last night Jasper fell asleep with his head on the base of the scratching post, which was super cute.

90 years after the fall of mankind and the isolation of the Nordic regions, a small, underfunded expedition sets out to chart the mysteries of the world long gone. Along the way, they find love, grief, and adventure.
There is one difference, though--all of them are birds.
Inspired by a fanart by the incomparable drepedetihjel (which was, in turn, inspired by a conversation on the Synchronized Screaming writing chat)

PokeGo Fest is running into some problems.

I know some of our members are from Chicago. Hopefully, you weren't one of these people! :/

(I feel like these were predictable issues? Oh Niantic.)

As part of my continuing effort to justify the Adobe Creative Cloud subscription I have, I’ve been playing with my Audition audio software and learning how to use it. Today I learned how to make a multitrack file! Go me. I also played with the various filters in the software to distort and shape sounds.

All of which is to say I recorded a song today and it is very very noisy indeed. It’s “Here Comes the Rain Again,” which is my favorite song from the Eurythmics. Here it is (and no, it’s not actually nine minutes long, I don’t know why the media player says that. It’s, like, five):

Yes, that’s me singing. No, Annie Lennox doesn’t have a thing to worry about.

In case you’re curious, every noise on that track either comes out of me, or out of an acoustic tenor guitar. Audio filters are fun! Let’s just say I let my Thurston out to play, and if you get that reference, congratulations, you’re old too.

No, I’m not giving up my day job. Relax. But I do enjoy playing with sounds. This is fun for me.

In any event: Enjoy the noise.

Optional: If you would like your secret's fandom to be noted in the main post along with the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret. If your secret makes the fandom obvious, there's no need to do this. If your fandom is obscure, you should probably tell me what it is.

Optional #3: If you would like a transcript to be posted along with your secret, put it along with the link in the comment!

Blacklight Sunset

Posted by John Scalzi

Because sometimes it’s fun to play with Photoshop’s sliders and see what you come up with. This is what happens (in part) when you push the “dehaze” slider all the way to the right. The real sunset didn’t look like this (it looked like this), but I think it might be cool to live on a planet where the sunset did look like that, every once in a while.

Enjoy the weekend, folks.


SHREW

Yesterday I got to see a tiny shrew very close-up and it was very exciting.

So I was sitting on a muddy path in a wooded area because of reasons (ok, exhausted after climbing) when I saw movement and a tiny thing scurrying past me. I figured that glimpse was all I'd see, but I turned round to see where it'd gone and it was on the path on the other side of me, and with great caution so as not to startle it I managed to dig my phone out of my coat pocket:

longshot in which a tiny shrew may be visible among rocks and moss

(There's nothing to give a sense of scale, but the shrew is a few centimetres long. It makes mice look big.)

THEN --

Cut for blurry close-ups and blurry worm death )

1. I'm just a few pages away from being done translating Tera Girl! Even though this is only a three volume series, it was such low priority it feels like it's taken forever to finish it, so I'm excited to finally get it done. (There is an unrelated one-shot at included in the last volume, and I do also plan to translate that, so I won't technically be done with the series until that's done, but I'll be done with the main story and the unrelated one-shot can wait for a bit.)

2. We got these delicious edamame Pretz in recently at work and I just tried them today and they're so good!

3. Carla got a bunch of really cute Chloe pics yesterday.
