Under Construction

Posted the same at my Storytime Theatre blog. After all, whatever I do affects all my blogs, and lately, I’ve lacked the time, or when I have the time, the energy, to properly care for these sites.

Random Thoughts and Legos

First, I will call them “Legos,” not “LEGO bricks” or “LEGO sets.”

Okay, “LEGO sets” is doable. That all-caps name is distracting, though. It’s not like I’m  screaming the word, after all.

OR AM I?!?!?

She’s free!

I think of things to write. I really do! But I haven’t put finger to keyboard because there aren’t enough hours in the day, and I still have to work for a living. Lately my priority has been: video games. This is a sign that I’ve been feeling stressed out and helpless to change anything. This means that I’m not writing or sculpting or really, even reading much here or anywhere. Sorry, people that I follow!

Another chapter plug!

I know, I haven’t navel-gazed in a while. If it helps, I’ve been doing the fiction stuff instead.

BEHOLD! A link to the latest chapter of the Pauper Princess Fanction Theatre, which is currently mashing together my Pauper Princess character with the webcomic Girl Genius. Fun for the whole family!**

Vol 4, Chapter 14: http://wp.me/p3HAGQ-3L

If you’ve never read any of it before, here’s Vol 1, Chapter 1: http://wp.me/p3HAGQ-5



**It is probably not fun for the whole family.

Sad News

The Matticus Kingdom

I have terrible news to share with the blogosphere today.

Horrible, no good, awful news.

Many of you knew him as Grayson Queen, author and artist extraordinaire.  Perhaps you’ve read one of his novels.  Perhaps you’ve purchased, or at least enjoyed, some of his paintings or sculptures…  Perhaps you knew that he was also Rara‘s husband, Dave.

I don’t have a lot of details, but I can confirm that Dave passed away earlier this week.

Please share this post wide and far.  Please say a prayer for Dave and Rara.  Please send her every ounce of spare energy you can muster.  She needs us.  Dave’s family and friends need us.

And send her mail to show her your love, your RawrLove:

Radhika Jaini WF0124
16756 Chino-Corona Road
Corona, CA  92880

You don’t need to know what to say.  You don’t need to say anything…

Good Samaritan, or Idiot?

I’ll tell you this story before I tell you the other one.

A while back someone on my Facebook feed posted a link to one of those “What Would You Do?” videos. It was a show that staged moral dilemmas for people and filmed them with hidden cameras. I meant to click on the link, but the feed got away from me. And yet I’d been thinking about it for a while. The dilemma presented was for a woman (actress) using food stamps – probably an EBT card these days – to buy groceries and falling short. I didn’t see the video, but I imagine that she was agonizing loudly enough for bystanders to hear. Another actress was there to complain about poor people. And then it showed how different people reacted. I still haven’t seen that video, so I don’t know its findings. It’s only the situation that I find intriguing, not the outcome.
