Indispensable Writing Tips From Famous Authors

This is the wall behind the bar at Paddy’s Irish Pub in Portland, Oregon. It is a beautiful thing to behold.  Had a few beers and a delicious Reuben sandwich here, and yes, that is an old-school library style rolling ladder to help reach the highest shelves of booze.  That shit ain’t just for decoration, it’s for DRUNK-oration (that sort of works, right?)

Pottermore Difficulties

Finally got my access to Pottermore, and the dang thing keeps crashing my browser.

I JUST WANT TO GET SORTED.  GAHHHHHHHHHHH!!! 

YES.

En Route to Portland

The Good: In-flight WiFi!

The Bad: It’s slow to the point of being nearly useless. This makes dial-up seem speedy. First world problems abound.

The Ugly: Turbulence, small seats, and a crying baby 4 rows ahead.

Flying to Portland

In an hour or so.

Holy frijoles it’s early.  This is the type of morning situation that warrants hash browns.

Goal of the trip: find at least one place that Man vs. Food went to and eat there.  Possibly do challenge, we’ll see.

This is the sort of picture that I want hanging on my wall right now.

Been getting more and more into electronic music these days, and this guy is one of the main reasons why.  The pad he uses is just so happy and bouncy and fun, can’t help but have a good day when you’re listening to this stuff!

I’m still into metal too, I promise.

TGIF of the Day: Yesterday’s historic Southwest power outage, which left as many as 6 million people without power in parts of California, Arizona, and Mexico, was the fault of a lone employee of Arizona’s largest electric utility, APS.
According to NBC San Diego, the electrical worker removed some monitoring equipment at a southwest Arizona power substation Thursday afternoon, triggering a domino effect that knocked out power across a large portion of the area.
“The outage appears to be related to a procedure an APS employee was carrying out in the North Gila substation, which is located northeast of Yuma,” APS said in a statement. “Operating and protection protocols typically would have isolated the resulting outage to the Yuma area. The reason that did not occur in this case will be the focal point of the investigation into the event, which already is underway.”
By Friday morning, power was back for many, but officials asked residents to conserve energy in order to “reduce the strain” on the fragile electrical grid.

Holy shit I was totally there! I’m, like, location-contact-tumblr famous! Sort of!
Anyways, if you think the second picture doesn’t look that bad, you should have seen everywhere else in San Diego - outside of downtown the entire county was PITCH BLACK.  Pretty creepy.  Riddick would have been fine though.

Redaction

A few months back I wrote a post about how I was reinventing my blog and blah blah blah and all that stuff.  The main point of it was that I was no longer going to be reblogging, in the interest of being totally original and thematically consistent.

Well now I am older and wiser and I have realized that when you have <30 followers, choosing not to reblog is a quick way to stay at exactly <30 followers.  Also, no one really cares.  So I am officially admitting failure making a pragmatic decision to reinstitute the institution of reblogging as a posting option for myself.

Hopefully this will make you all love me.
