Judging by the nearly 50 million views I may be the last person in the world to hear this, but I’m in love with this cover…
Radioactive by Lindsey Sterling and Pentatonix
dyssyllogistic [dis ’sil loh JISS tic] (adj.) difficult to figure out [from Greek δυσσυλλογιστος (dyssillogistos)]
Hah! No—some of us are made of sterner stuff! Although the drawings are a bonus, too! And the photography!
Some of your past drawings have been coming to mind in particular because I’ve been working through some etymological and cultural ties between λύκος (wolf) and λεύκον (white) and the Lycians 3,000 years ago.
And, really, do try and find a copy of Paris, France if you want a good laugh about writers and small presses taking themselves too seriously. And occasionally wearing lots of patent leather. And not much else.
Cmaj9♭5 for a start.
Lest we forget what disco became, always remembered but never again to be sung.
I was dancing on my knees […]

This looks like a nightmare. Is this like a Turducken except from another layer of hell?
good lord no.
When they come out of the ocean, I for one will be honoured to serve our tasty extraterrestrial overlords,
Serve them to whom??
tumblr, help me. Can I watch Torchwood without having to watch Dr Who. Jack intrigues me. The Dr does not.
Yes! I watched Torchwood before Who, and you don’t need to know anything about it, really. They explain it all.
Oh, yes. I’ve known quite a few folks who’ve happily started from that side.
And, after all, the twenty-first century is when everything changes.
Don’t, however, start with “K-9 and Company.” (Just one planet’s opinion.)
I keep telling my friends they can fiddle a bit with Twitter if that interests them—though the way to do that is follow people who do or talk about things that interest you—not necessarily because of who they are.
I suppose that’s a good way to start on Tumblr, too, but things change after a while.
I don’t have a huge number of folks to follow, nor many that follow me back. But what I see is…art, creativity, support, acceptance, open-mindedness. And yes, because we’re people, we sometimes have depression, worries, panic, self-harm, obsessiveness, and occasionally brush up with full-on despair. But those things mostly are met with support, appreciation, love, creativity, and art.
Granted, I suspect there’s small backwoods where someone’s set up a hateful, separatist Tumblr—where horrid things are put online. Glad to say I haven’t stumbled across any. I shalln’t go looking for them.
This week someone said “all the kids” are online now. She meant her classes, because she teaches high school. And I said, Oh, yeah! Tumblr is the place to be. It puzzled her and her husband, who didn’t know Tumblr.
I just said that Tumblr is where the hope for the future was meeting and left it at that.
I love you constructive, creative, generous, dazzlingly-brilliant thinkers, makers, and people-who-will-change-the-world.
