Surviving the Apocalypse

As anyone who knows me well will tell you, I am somewhat obsessed with emergency preparedness and safety in general.  Mind you, not to the point of having a bunker and hoarding gold coins and such, but I do take that sort of thing seriously when it comes to normal Red Cross-type preparation.

Well, this past week I got to hear Annalee Newitz, one of the founders of io9, give a reading from her new book: Scatter, Adapt, and Remember:
How Humans Will Survive a Mass Extinction
.  And it was quite illuminating, and a lot of fun to boot.  Count on the Harvard Bookstore to always bring in cool authors.

I know this is old, but…

I had not seen it before yesterday.  And it’s quite well done.

Besides, after Sunday I just have Game of Thrones on the brain.  SO excited that Season 4 has finally started.

CHICKEN

So there was the Game of Thrones season 4 premiere.

Then this happened.

And then, the fan art.

This doesn't really need a caption, does it?

ETA the Second:

While twitter brought us the above image, it didn’t bring an attribution… immediately.  Thanks to the link to this post getting around the original artist got in touch with me and I can credit the original image to ROCOM.  You can find ROCOM at that link, which goes to tumblr, or on twitter @rocom

This is what the original image looks like.

If I hear from the creator of the image at the top I’ll be glad to ETA again.

Two awesome videos

These are two videos that have come across my media feeds lately.  They’re very different from one another, but they’re both absolutely worth watching.  And, now that the Game of Thrones season premier is over, you can do just that.

This is the most inspired musical performance I’ve seen in a long time

Seriously, I was amazed.  A friend tweeted this to me.  If these guys ever come to Boston I will see them in concert.  I have a feeling they’d do well performing at Berklee.

I have to admit, I do feel sorry for their bows.

After digging through their YouTube channel there’s some really great stuff.  The video with Steve Vai is pretty amazing, too.  You should check it out.  Preferably with the sound system turned up to 11.

Valentine roundup

On the day I wear black and refer to as The Crispus Attucks St. Valentine’s Massacre Memorial, the rest of the world celebrates Hallmark’s day and overspends on chocolate, jewelry, flowers, and all thinks pink and red.  Last year we presented valentines in this space of a special variety.  This year we’ve gathered some of the best that showed up in our Twitter feed.  And by “best” we mean Geekiest.  Enjoy.

The dual basket idea worked, apparently

When we decided to put a second basket on top of the upright freezer as a cat bed, we had hoped that eventually the cats would be able to use them at the same time.  And so they have.

Yesterday, as I was finally finishing up the major kitchen cleaning and reorganization project I mentioned earlier, I put out the jar that holds cat treat and stocked it.  That got someone’s attention.

I welcome our new feline overlords

A little while back Shakay sent us a link to this website.  The design is fantastic and the fact that this is all designed for cats just thrills me to pieces.

It also terrifies me.

For my church organist friends

This popped up on our Twitter feed this morning.  Somehow I suspect you’ll all understand.

All that’s missing is one that says EJECT.
