Happy birthday to hdaemon!

Happy early birthday to fiddle_dragon, skintalker, contradictacat, and caudelac, who advance a year over the weekend!

State of the 'Song
Exhausted. I just don't sleep well with the roar of fans. Also I have difficulty napping downstairs/in the heat. I can haz autumn?

Oi, Bostonians!
Monday evening. Oberon in Harvard Square. Beowulf: A Thousand Years of Baggage.

"Digging into the roots of the original epic poem, this club-style SongPlay hearkens back to the raw and rowdy style of storytelling in the old Scandinavian mead halls- with a passion for fierce poetry and a pint of thick beer.

Monsters and professors collide in blood-soaked Scandinavia as this hefty poem is rescued from 1,000 years of analysis and transformed in a defiantly raucous dissertation on art and violence. With a 7-piece band including dueling trombones, bass clarinet, accordion and saw, Beowulf combines Weillian cabaret, 40's jazz harmony, indie rock, punk, electronica and Romantic lieder into a cacophonous swirl."

Who's with me?

Court Day!
I am headed to the courthouse this morning, where the judge will approve Elayna's settlement from the asshole driver's insurance company and this will be one step closer to over.

* Exactly how the new LJ/Facebook/Twitter thing works, and why people are right to be upset.
* PowerChords: a new RPG based on music, magic, and urban fantasy, by satyrblade and aaronace, among others. It is seeking Kickstarter funding. Toss a few in the pot?

Daily Science
Observations made with NASA's newly refurbished Hubble Space Telescope of a nearby supernova are allowing astronomers to measure the velocity and composition of "star guts" being ejected into space following the explosion, according to a new study led by the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Friday Memeage
Wearing: Black crewneck top and long dark blue and black skirt. I wanted to dig up one of my old suits, but I can't find them.
Reading: Talking to Girls about Duran Duran by Rob Sheffield, and The Death and Life of Great American Cities by Jane Jacobs.
Writing: Again, no time in August. But I did get a bit of Jessa's story in, and it was not even a porny bit.
Knitting: Um, two baby blankets right now. Hi. Also I'll be bringing the pattern I used for the fishnet-armor wristwarmers to the courthouse, because rows of 20something stitches are better than rows of 123 stitches when you might be called up at any moment.
Today: Hopefully I'll come out of there early and alert, because I have a phone call to make, a BARCC blog post to write, final Arisia panel vetting to do, StrowlerCon catchup, and various other stuff. No plans tonight, and I'd like some.
Tomorrow: Wyrding Studios art retreat! Time with some of my favorite people and with my very favorite dogs! If I have energy and a ride or crashspace, I might go dancing when I get home. Heroes anyone?
Sunday: Game and craft day at our house, then Leverage at taura_g's if I've energy.
Monday: Zero plans. I really would like to see Beowulf, though.
