ksmith: (me)

Found this on Tumblr. Bought the song and sub’ed to Pentatonix’ You Tube feed (I had already sub’d to Stirling’s).

I first heard this song on AMC, IIRC during ads for “Defiance”. Maybe it was “Falling Skies.”

It’s marvelous.

It goes like this:

Ok, so I’m not actually writing at the present time. But I am thinking about sentences, and what plot point goes where next, and whether I will fall off the back of the treadmill before I reach the end.

Honest.

Going back to it right now.

Really.

25 minutes long. Worth your time. His takes on risk-taking, editing, the written word, all interesting and pertinent.

Thanks to Liz Williams over on Facebook for the link.

This would be such a cool thing to see in person.

I used to see dolphins when I lived in Florida, but only one or two at a time. Nothing like this.

Ear worm

I don’t often get classical earworms, but Beethoven’s Rage Over a Lost Penny has been looping through my head all day.

It’s appropriate. Not that I’ve lost anything, but the chasing one’s tail air of the tune just fits.

It’s 10 and a half minutes, which is longish for a You Tube clip. But it’s a fascinating discussion of Shakespeare’s plays being performed in the English of the time, aka Original Pronunciation. Rhymes that didn’t in Modern English rhyme once more. Puns pop out where before, the modern pronunciations obscured them.

Thanks to Jeffrey Richard over at Facebook for the link.

No time to say more than…whoa. Totally encrusted with science…and just a bit scary.

And if they get a little bigger and brave the outdoors, UFO sightings will jump about 1000%.

I do enjoy the series music, but after the show is over, I tend to forget about it. Then Julie Czerneda mentioned that she received the Series 5 soundtrack for Christmas and it hit me that whoa, the stuff is out there and I really do like listening to it. “Onwards!” is a favorite, and Amy’s music is lovely and poignant.

Not sure how it happened, but I tripped over this nifty two-minute clip of Murray Gold, the composer, playing the Matt Smith theme:

That led me to this interview. Take note of his comments about working under pressure, which start at about the 4:20 mark. Applicable to any creative process.

I need to get the S5 CD, I think.

As an aside…that 2-minute clip…funny hat and good bones and goofy and a bit talented. I don’t know, Mister Gold. The Lure of the Minstrel.

I think you have a fan here.

Oh yeah?

Remember the bearded dragon that was teased with fake ants on a smartphone screen.

African Bullfrogs aren’t quite so agreeable.

Even if you hates Christmas. Even if your middle name is Scrooge. Even if you’ve sworn off holiday movies, mistletoe, and egg nog.

Just wait until they try to put reindeer antlers on her.

Cool links by way of Ed Yong’s weekly link round-up:

Oil Paintings Made of Yarn!

There’s something about the look on the lizard’s face. It has a “you’re going to post this on You-Tube, aren’t you?” resigned air about it.
