On the Sliding Scale Of Idealism Vs. Cynicism, I like to think of myself as being idyllically cynical. (Patreon page.)

Writer's Mini-Ramble: Deus Ex Nates: The Ending Out Of Your @$$ · 7:16pm August 4th

So there's this old graphic novel titled Camelot 3000. As it exists today, it's the bound collection of a twelve-issue miniseries which was originally published by DC between 1982 and 1985, and it holds several historical distinctions in the genre. Included in those: for technical achievements, it's among the first DC maxi-series, one of the original direct market projects, and the first comic to be printed on Baxter paper instead of newsprint. And for social, it was one of

You learn how to identify the ones who can't be saved, and then you leave them to die.

And then there was a hockey puck. · 12:56am July 30th

This is the short version:

I wanted to write a sponsored blog today. Two, ideally. (Yes, they will run through August. I very carefully didn't say 'just July' this time when I asked for topics: I just said things would start in July. I have some knowledge of how my life works.)

Someone in the apartment below mine tried to microwave frozen bread back to freshness. This requires, depending on the model, twenty to forty seconds.

Patreon blog takeover: So, Estee, why DO you hate humanity (in Equestria)? (Winter_Solstice) · 9:51am July 27th

We'll lead off with the actual question.

What are your thoughts on HiEs? Not 'Brony in Equestria' tales; those are crap for the most part. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the former.

Actually, you're going to get a little of everything. And if anyone links out this blog, I'm going to see a lot of hate.

Let's start.

Jury Duty III: Summoned With A Vengeance (Follower poll: vote within.) · 3:57pm July 21st

...okay, this is getting ridiculous. I just received a summons for late August, after having had to report in last October. Apparently Unanimi has been designated as my spirit animal, because the online registration check service -- a set of code which should have been programmed to recognize the red flag of 'IT'S TOO SOON!' -- just told me to be at the courthouse on time.

Triptych: the chapter titles-to-date explained (or: behold, your writer is too committed to this @$%^ theme) · 6:39pm July 17th

It's been noticed by several people -- possibly just about everyone who's still reading the story at this point -- that for Triptych itself, every chapter title can be related to art in some way. And I always try to have at least a weak connection between the term and whatever's happening within: some ties are stronger than others, while others are just barely related.

Survey: Season 7 prior-to-viewing opinons wanted. · 5:31pm July 9th

Amazon just put the DVD set up for preorder. (The listing briefly appeared a couple of days ago, but the site wasn't taking orders until now.) I've already depleted part of what was going to be my limited Prime Day budget in making sure I was locked down for the first wave: anyone wishing to do the same can place their order from this
