Of Sites and Sounds

And now, as promised, I bring you, the new S-S.N. I encourage you all to take peek. Some points that may be of particular interest:

  • The bootlegs page, which contains some mp3s of (surprise!) Damien Rice, Glen Hansard, and the Frames as well as links to places where I’ve found other bootlegs I enjoy. A real highlight there, though, is that I have the entire show that the Frames played in Seattle in October 2005. I’m hoping to put the LA gig up there, too, but we have to see how the bandwidth goes.
  • Lots of story excerpts. I don’t think anyone bothered to wade through them as I posted them here, and I can’t blame you because there’s around 25,000 words here. But there are some excerpts that are completely new, in the sense that I’ve never posted them or shown them to anyone before. Among those are scenes from Nandiealmae’s, Ilarwyn’s, and Jeassinae’s childhoods; a scene with Natasja escaping from Arman; and one of my favorite stories from Jeassinae’s adolescent years, which, though old, is not something I’ve shared before. Check them out, and please let me know what you think!

I have survived my first week of classes, which included tensors, NASA talks about exploring Titan, and encouragement (not least in the form of an application fee waiver) to apply to Notre Dame for graduate school. Jessica is gone this weekend while Google courts her; Eric is at Sci-Fi marathon; and Mark and I are enjoying a bit of Fry and Laurie in the form of Jeeves and Wooster, interspersed with more House because one can’t go wrong there. I haven’t any proper homework yet. It’s a good weekend.

  • Oh, so pretty. Hopefully when I get my laptop back I’ll have more of a chance to read thru the stories and peruse the bootlegs! I’ve been reading the stories that have come thru the RSS feed tho and have been enjoying them 🙂 Talk to you soon. B

  • I’m glad you like it so far! And it’s good to know that someone is actually reading the stories. I was starting to think that maybe I should have cut more of them.

  • Would I be right in supposing that if I have read all the stories that were on the RSS feed, that I have actually read most of what you have posted? Because I have! I really did like them, and I’m intrigued by all your universi! (I demand that the plural of universe is now universi!)

  • You would be right in supposing that. I just thought that the complete lack of comments meant that no one was reading them 😉
