    favorite forum: Bad Grobanites

    my art thread
  1. I think here in my area if you do an extensive renovation like that you have to put in sprinklers. I guess they'll change that now in London? Horrible tragedy I have not been a Bad Grobanite. I've been listening to the cast recording of Comet & blogged about it I went to my college reunion. I developed a flyer for my books, which I've been keeping secret & I passed them out to people. I don't want them to die with me. Coming out of the closet as a novel writer. Some fans are doing an event July 2 in conjunction with Josh's last performance. I finally checked out whether there were tickets still available, but they were $359. I decided not to splurge. There are some cheaper ones before then, but I've got the album and I'm getting a lot out of that.
  2. I went out and bought gaming computer that my kids and I can use, hopefully to create a VR background for my video. I got it home and discovered that it's an 800 W device. That's like a small space heater! I think I'll need a dedicated circuit for it and an additional air conditioner. I didn't anticipate this. My younger son had a work test today where he had to work in a hotel for half a day. This was sponsored by the state agency that is supposed to help people with disabilities find work. He found the test exhausting, but seemed to think it went ok. It's definitely progress that he's actually making and keeping appointments with the state agency. A few years ago the agency said he wasn't work ready, because they couldn't get him to cooperate. The older one was informed that he wouldn't be needed at work until July, so hopefully that means that he will be available to help me with the video.
  3. A lot of people make meditation too complicated, IMHO. I suspect Josh is already meditating, when he takes Sweeney for a walk.
  4. Para: good luck on the bathroom, congrats on the interview Padlig: when people flame me online, I point out that this is cyber bullying. It's not convincing. Often, when people are accused of cyber bullying, they back off. If they're really whacko, then I block them.
  5. Padlig2: thanks for your interest. The problem with linking to my music video is that I'm posting it in my real name, and I've been very careful not to use my real name on here. I suppose I could message you a link to a rough cut. I blogged about Wonder Woman (spoiler alert) I'm still processing this. There are so many metaphors. I feel like it can be looked at more deeply than your typical super hero movie.
  6. My son has a VR castle on Second Life that I'm anxious to use in my music video, but there are technical hurdles. I'm impatient to get through this, but as usual getting my kids to do things is like trying to herd cats. Jenny, I'm sorry to hear of your health issues. Sounds very scary. Went to see Wonder Woman tonight. I think I liked it. I went with my younger son who generally is disappointed with everything. Now he says he only wants to see Marvel Comics movies, not DC comics movies. He said something complex and erudite about it, something about being a combination of three genres and succeeding in none of them. I feel he's a natural critic. He could do that professionally, but I wonder if he'll ever get himself together to do anything professionally
  7. Lucia Micarelli has a PBS special coming up in Santa Barbara this Saturday. I wish I could go. She's getting great press
  8. Sigh. I've watched so many music videos that I wanted to do one. I just got fed up with my director. So I'm having to change directors midstream. Frustrating. Expensive
  9. Very upsetting about the Ariana Grande concert. I mostly go to concerts at the NY Philharmonic. They do some searches before you go into the auditorium, though they seem a bit perfunctory. I know they're really relying on the dogs that they have, which are trained to find weapons. I hope the dogs are as good as the handlers think they are Bright side of suicide bomber: at least the perp is dead.
  10. Congratulations Jenann on your daughter. Now I see someone congratulating Padlig2 on her daughter and I can't find the right post to figure that out, but congratulations! I hope you can see this video Great commentary on the state of the nation.
  11. Mother's Day Dinner with my ex and kids. My ex is making concessions to conservatism in fashion and was sensibly dressed in black and pearls -- no flounces, crenoline, or lace -- and no dinner mint colors. She (formerly he) even managed to find some sensible patent leather flats in a women's size 14 to fit her large feet, which strikes me as quite a coup. Forgot to get a photo, rats. My older child is now saying they are "non-binary." I'm thinking that my natural personality turned out to be a bit of a deterrent. I started pressuring "them" [singular they] to be a better daughter and go with me to Lord and Taylor and go shopping, because that's what moms and daughters do. They totally don't like this idea and tell me to ditch my gender stereotypes. Bit of a relief. I need to put on more pressure. I tried to get them to try on more of my clothes. They didn't like this. What else can I pressure them to do that men don't like to do?
  12. I just want to put in a plug for my friend Stoddy who is an Indie singer/songwriter/pianist. Here's his soundcloud
  13. Permit me to put in another plug for
  14. Jenann: You think all those people left due to politics? I thought Maggs was still occasionally posting. I know Brenda left due to politics. I remain terrified of what Trump is going to do this country. I still believe he is an emotionally unstable, corrupt, totalitarian, foreign agent and pedophile.
  15. Josh who was once so super modest and so super private has now posted a swimsuit photo on FB. A SWIMSUIT PHOTO!!! Sheesh. I'm stunned
