Bleh. Did the whole ‘go have your bloodwork done or we won’t insure you any more’ thing Kahuna’s work requires every year. Forgot to tell the lab tech I can’t do latex so I came home with a rash all over my incredibly sore arm.
I have scoured the Amazon site and can’t find my pre-order for Serpent Sea by Martha Wells anywhere. Sigh. I keep thinking I saw a tweet where someone had a few signed copies left so I may go check that out and pick one up from them.
According to Google, it would take 41 hours to drive to E3 from my house.
If I were Tony Stark I would invent a device so every time I walked through a door ‘Fire‘ by Viv and the Revival would play. It would be like having my own personal theme song. People would still be humming it after I left the building. Captain America would (in a long-suffering tone) tell me to keep it off the coms during battle and that no, I could not organize a cheerleading squad and band to play the song live every time I smacked Dr Doom or a Hydra agent with a repulsor blast. Sigh…Cap never lets me have any fun.
Okay, maybe I really need another cup of coffee.
How is it only Wednesday?
So we were watching the H50 premier and McGarrett was doing push ups and I was like, oh please, his hands are twenty miles apart. McGarrett is/was a Navy SEAL and not just any Navy SEAL, but Steve the SuperSEAL. Seriously, we are supposed to believe he gets those muscles and SuperSEAL abilities by doing normal, wide-spaced push ups? He couldn’t have been doing, I don’t know, divebombers maybe? Diamond push ups? Feet up on the bunk push ups? One arm push ups? Any of those would have been more realistic for his character’s conditioning and abilities.
Explain to me again why I just can’t just post a Ryan Bingham video everyday and call it a blog?
Martha Wells’ new novel, The Serpent Sea is available for pre-order at Amazon and at Barnes and Noble. (no cover art yet which is too bad because the cover I saw was cool) While we
impatiently wait for it to release and ship, Wells has put a shiny new short story, The Almost Last Voyage of the Wind-Ship Escarpment, up on her website. Read the story for free and if you like it, pop something in her tip jar.
Mergers and Acquisitions, the new album from Have Gun Will Travel, will release on November 1, 2011. Starting Friday September 23, 2011 you can pre-order the album from Suburban Home Records and receive a digital download. And a coozie.
Okay, I am done for today but tomorrow, there will be another Ryan Bingham vid. You have been warned.
So I took yesterday off (mostly) from the internet. I played Oblivion and napped with the baby and just kind of vegged the day away.
Martha Wells has the first chapter of her next book, The Serpent Sea, up on her blog. Pop over and read it for free. I have a review of her Cloud Roads that will be going up some time next week. Once I, you know, finish it.
I have a short article on Blacklight Retribution up over on GamingHUD. Mechs people. It has MECHS!
I don’t listen to much Gospel. Maybe a little by default from Mavis Staples but I don’t seek it out. So I was very surprised by how much I liked Charlie Spraggs.
Beautiful voice. Check out his Reverbnation page for information about him and his music.
