utterlyfubar:

I have fallen down the rabbit-hole of TED talks.

Somebody throw me a rope.

I probably won’t climb out just yet, but I’m gonna need it at some point.

ETA: and I just realized that one of these talks was used in Criminal Minds.  In the show, Dr. Spencer Reed is actually at the lecture, but it’s the same guy, wearing the same shirt, speaking the exact same words.

We tumble down together!  I started about a month ago, and I can’t get enough.  It’s podcasts for me, but the whole TED realm is addicting…

How Big A Factor…?

gailsimone:

Just wondering what goes into your decision to purchase a comic at a comics store? For this question, I am only talking about buying a comic off the rack at the comics shop, please.

How important is:

The cover?

The artwork?

The writer’s name?

The publisher?

The genre?

The lead character (s)?

Whether or not the story is an ‘event’ comic?

Most important is the subject(genre?).  Is it about something I want to read?  Second is the cover followed closely by inside art (often the determining factor is how the women are drawn, especially on the cover).  I do follow writers, but if I’m just browsing these are the first things I think of/look at.

Monday night awesomeness

Mondays are my night in: I keep them clear so I have one night a week where I can do whatever I want.  And last night, I tried to hit everything that makes me happy.  AND SUCCEEDED.  Here’s the list:

  • finished the fantasy novel I was reading (Dark Triumph)
  • ate favorite olive garden soup
  • played a game of ME3 multiplayer
  • watched a Tabletop episode (Once Upon a Time)
  • played a board game (Race for the Galaxy, solitaire edition)
  • opened and sorted new Xwing miniatures (Tycho, you are mine!)

It was peaceful, centering and fulfilling.  I freaking love Mondays!

New season 2 missions for ZR?

Does anyone know when we can get the next set of missions for season 2 of Zombies, Run?  I’ve got two missions left and then my addiction must be fed again…
